...Women Theft Cases in Naga City Elaine France Z. De Quiroz* and AmanteAma Engineering and Science Education Program Camarines Sur National High School Peñafrancia Ave., Naga City *Corresponding Author: allaine_euphemia18@yahoo.com Abstract Naga City is the “Heart of Bicol” and one of the first class independent component cities in the Philippines. Needed informations were gathered from the three different police stations in Naga City to observe the number of reported theft cases for the last three months of 2011 involving women suspects. After tabulating and contour mapping the datum, it was concluded that Barangay Dayangdang and Barangay Triangulo had the most number of the said case with a total of four reported cases covered by the given months. Keyword: theft 1. Introduction Naga City is stated as one of the first class independent component city in the Philippines. Being the commercial, financial, religious and cultural center of the Bicol region, Naga is the “Heart of Bicol”. [1] Theft is the unauthorized taking of other person’s property with the suspect’s intention to permanently deprive the person with rightful possession of that property. Unlike other crimes, theft is committed without forcing the victim to give its property. The act of theft is also known as stealing, thieving and filching.[2] Usually, women are the victims of crimes like robbery, theft, murder, rape and abuse. But in some cases, women are the main suspects like illegal......

Best Practices to Support Asia Women Who Have Been Trafficked Into Australia for Sex Trade : a Research Proposal

...Practices To Support Asian Women Who Have Been Trafficked Into Australia for the Sex Trade: a research proposal It has become evident that our service, Women’s Community Centre, is experiencing a growth in the number of Asian women using our facility. A review of the case notes has revealed symptoms and histories that would indicate that many of these women may have been trafficked into Australia for the purpose of sex slavery industry. As a social worker, at the Women’s Community Centre, there is a need to research issues surrounding this cohort of women and the best practices that may be implemented to support them without causing further risk of harm. I ask that the board of Women’s Community Centre support this research. Human trafficking is described by the United Nations (2009) as the acquisition of persons by improper means, either by force, fraud or deception, with the explicit aim of exploiting these persons. World Vision (2012), state that people who are trafficked are placed into many different exploitive situations. These include: ‘commercial sex workers, sex shows, pornography….. non-commercial sexual exploitation through marriage’. They also note the rise in online sexual exploitation through the use of video-cams and the internet. Literature Review With the increase number of Asian women, who are presenting to our service, who state they have been bought to Australia and now find themselves ‘bonded’ and working in the sex trade industry, it has......

Background Study of Sex Workers

...Book p.15, 2007) The idea of sex workers fighting for their human rights is a foreign concept to most people, even those who identify politically as progressives or feminists. Sex workers have lived on the margins of society through most of human history, and despite the prevalence of this work all over the world, sex workers are often treated as less than human, both in cultural attitudes and public policy. In fact, it cannot be said enough: sex workers are people—friends, neighbors, family members, wage earners, and parents—and they deserve the same human rights as everyone else. (http://www.ontheissuesmagazine.com/july08/july2008_1.php) Feminists and advocates of all stripes have argued that they want to work for the human rights of sex workers, often without an analysis of what human rights for sex workers might look like. While many people would agree that access to human rights includes the right to be free from harm, to have access to health care and housing, and to seek safe employment that pays a living wage, there is fierce debate as to what any of this actually means. (http://www.ontheissuesmagazine.com/july08/july2008_1.php) In many parts of the world, sex workers have been among the groups most vulnerable to and most affected by HIV since the beginning of the AIDS pandemic. After more than a decade of research and intervention in sex work settings there is a substantial body of knowledge on the behaviours that put sex workers, their clients and......

... Capricorn woman Complete guide to love, sex and relationships Capricorn woman personality traits and characteristics Capricorn women want to succeed. Whether it's in a career or as a homemaker they typically don't do things by halves. Goals and a practical viewpoint often characterize this lady. Outwardly reserved the Capricorn woman is a complex bundle of practicality, endearing modesty and self discipline in selected areas, often reserving her fun and sexy wild side exclusively for those who are very close to her. Down to earth, self motivated, patient and responsible. Capricorn women are generally among the harder signs to understand, with a number of personality traits which often confuse partners in the early stages of a relationship. While the Capricorn woman is as romantic and emotional as anyone else, she can be somewhat inhibited in expressing her emotions, often preferring to perform practical tasks to help loved ones in preference to making purely romantic gestures. She is very cautious by nature, and not one to rush into anything, so don't be misled if her interest appears mainly platonic initially. How do you eat an elephant? One spoonful at a time.. A Capricorns greatest strength is the ability to set long term goals and pursue them until attained. Nothing gets in the way of a Capricorns plans and ambitions, and they don't like taking shortcuts or cheating as either devalues their later satisfaction. They value steady progress over short bursts of activity,......

Premarital Sex

... Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) amongst adolescents are a worldwide growing health problem. Approximately one million people contract sexually transmitted infections every day and 50% of them are adolescents aged 15-24 years (Lazarus, Sihvonen-Riemenschneider, Laukamm-Josten, Wong & Liljestrand, 2010). STDs include many different sexually transmittable infectious diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhoea, genital herpes, human papilloma virus (HPV), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and syphilis. An STD is transmitted through vaginal, oral and anal sexual contact as well as through blood products. STDs can also be transmitted from mother to child during childbirth. Untreated chlamydia and gonorrhoea can lead to salpingitis for women and to epididymitis for men, which can affect fertility and in worst case lead to sterility. Hepatitis B, genital herpes, HPV and HIV are still incurable infections. HPV can lead to cervical cancer and HIV to premature death. The only way to protect oneself from contracting an STD is consistent condom use (Vårdguiden, 2011). Another term that is used in the literature is STI (sexually transmitted infection), which refers to the infection itself, whereas STD, which is the term that will be used in this paper, refers to the disease caused by an infection (TeenHealthFX, 2009). 1.2 Knowledge of STDs among adolescents A study based in Northern Thailand by Paz-Bailey et al. (2003) showed that Thai adolescents’ knowledge on HIV was high.......

Do Men and Women Have Different Sex Drives?

...Do Men and Women Have Different Sex Drives? There are an incredible number of beliefs behind the varying differences in men and women pertaining to sexual behavior and desire. “Sexual desire is the subjective experience of being interested in sexual objects or activities or wishing to engage in sexual activities (Regan & Berscheid, 1999).” Although men and women have very different ideas of sex and sexual behaviors, many stereotypes have been created to associate the way that men and women are affected by the ideas of sex. Scientific evidence would suggest that some of these stereotypes are in fact true, however many others are false. When examining said stereotypes it is important to realize that differences between a man and woman’s sexual desire pertain to many factors. Men and women vary based on sexual desire due to biology, age, and culture. To start is it important to determine the factors that pertain to male and female arousal. There is a wide variety of differences in what men and women desire. For example “Heterosexual men become aroused mostly by women’s bodies, and homosexual men are aroused mostly by men’s bodies. Heterosexual women, however, are likely to be aroused by visual depictions of either sex, especially if sexual activity is taking place, though lesbians tend to be aroused mostly by erotic images of women (Chivers, Seto, & Blanchard, 2007).” Throughout a lifetime, women tend to be more elastic when considering sexual activity, whereas......

Objectification of Women vs Sex Sells

...Objectification of women Vs. "Sex Sells": Where is the Line drawn Why is it that we have become impervious to the objectification of women today? Why do a large group of men and women allow and condone this type of behavior? A perfect example of this is my friend Chad. He is your stereotypical play-boy. In his mind he is God's gift to women. One day we were at the bar. He was doing his usually "surveillance" as he called it. Looking around trying to find out which girl would be most likely to go home with him just by their physical appearance. I thought of it more as his predatorily stalking like a hyena looking for a wounded calf in a herd of buffalo. (No objectification meant) His eyes fixated on a women in her mid twenties with red hair and a super model body. It wasn't an hour later that he left the bar with her, leaving me in the company of a sweating Heineken and a $53 tab. Two days later we met up and lounged on his porch in the late afternoon enjoying the cool weather. He began to brag about the red haired woman he took home. He nicknamed her "Lips" for reasons I prefer not to get into but spoke of her actions during their little sexual escapade. He spoke in graphic detail about things I just didn't care to hear. After a few minutes of this assault Chad asked me what I had done after he left. I don't know if it was anger that compelled me but something motivated me to do something I have avoided doing in a long time. I began to speak of an explicit......

Sex Guide

...A Sexy Guide bySteelAndSilk© While I was pondering a bit about another how-to, I stumbled onto the idea of one about how women could be sexy (or sexier) toward men, and also, avoid being unsexy. Now, as I've stated in some of my other articles, I have no business telling men how to be sexy toward women. I'll leave that to a woman, seeing as she would know a hell of a lot more than I would. There are the obvious things, of course, for both sexes. Being in decent shape, having a good attitude toward each other (though some women do go for the douchebags, a concept I'll never understand), etc, are all great things. However, not every guy is going to be able to get all ripped out, and not every woman has time to tone her abs or get supermodel hot. Let me share a secret with you ladies...you don't have to in order to be sexy. But, it is good to take care of yourself, just as you would want your man to. Now, understand that when I "speak for men" we're talking about your run-of-the-mill normal guy. Sure, there are guys who think you dressing in a skin-tight latex full body suit with weird goggles for your eyes and a zipper on the mouth while you spank his ass with a spiked paddle is sexy. I'm not remotely experienced with that, so I'm going to leave that be. Nor am I getting into the men who supposedly love obese women. No experience there either. So what do you think of when you think sexy, girls? Maybe waiting for your husband to come home, candles lit and music playing, and......

Die gebratenen Champignons in den Schmortopf geben und ca. 5 Minuten leicht köcheln lassen, dabei nach Belieben klein gehackte Kräuter hinzufügen.

...12:06 Page 1 WOMEN, GENDER AND WORK People are not defined solely by their work, nor is it possible to ignore the effects of factors outside the workplace on a person's status at work. To seek equality at work without seeking equality in the larger society – and at home – is illusory.Thus an examination of the issues surrounding women, gender and work must be holistic. That means considering the role of productive work in life as a whole and the distribution of unpaid work as well as the myriad questions relating to employment. This important anthology brings together the thinking of leading philosophers, economists and lawyers on this complex subject. Selected recent articles from the multidisciplinary International Labour Review are assembled for the first time to illuminate questions such as how we should define equality, what equal opportunity means and what statistics tell us about differences between men and women at work, how the family confronts globalization and what is the role of law in achieving equality. There is an examination of policy – to deal with sexual harassment and wage inequality, for example, as well as part-time work, the glass ceiling, social security, and much more. A major reference on the best of current research and analysis on gender roles and work. Martha Fetherolf Loutfi has been Editor-in-Chief of the International Labour Review, a Senior Economist for the Brandt Commission and in the ILO’s Employment and......
