The main argument favoring co-education is that is provides a powerful incentive to both genders to work in completion with each other. A higher standard of work is produced because both boys and girls are on their mettle.

The mixing of genders in co-educational school eradicate shyness I the boy and girl relationship. This is true and they do benefit by living, working, and playing together. “Mixed” activities in schools with different genders are part of curriculum inmost school nowadays. On the other hand, boys and girls in separate school do experience shyness. They may encounter problems of adapting to one another, as they are not exposed to an environment of sharing and working together.

Finally, co-education leads more balanced school life because of mutual interest between genders. Plays, concerts, projects, and so on are easier to produce when girls and boys can both take part, and the results are often better.

The danger in mixed school is that the adolescent will become too preoccupied with the attraction to one another and they may involve in difficulties of serious social nature. However, with roper guidance and supervision, this is not such a difficult problem to overcome.

The advantages of co-education are out numbers disadvantages. It brings benefit to social side. It promotes the value of cooperation and is most evident in the sphere of human relations. Almost every aspect of human life is being dependent upon it. Both genders will learn hoe to live and work in harmony with another. Therefore, co-education is there to say as it is proven to be beneficial to society.

We often hear about solar car, solar heating or solar batteries. But will solar energy ever be a major source of energy for industrial societies? The solar energy is cheaper than any other fossil fuel because we can get the abundant source from the sun.

In sunny desert areas, 50% of the sun’s radiation that reaches the ground could be used to produce electricity for business and industry, to provide heat, light and hot water for homes. Experimental solar ponds can produce hot water to drive generators.

Unfortunately, we can’t yet power our homes entirely on sunlight. Solar energy can only be exploited in bright light. Its greatest potential therefore is in hot countries that have clear skies for most of the year. While most houses, are not always in the sunniest part of the world. In addition, to harnessing the solar power, solar cells are needed to convert the sunlight directly into electricity. Solar cells are very cheap to run, but relatively expensive to buy and many people can’t afford it.

Needless to say that solar energy is useful and non-polluted source of energy. Nevertheless. Solar cells, the main important device to harness the sun’s energy are still very expensive.

There are many reasons for both sides of the questions, “should we have printed advertisement?” Many people have strong views and feel that ads are nothing more than useless junk mail, while other people feel they are an important source of information.

Here are some reason why we should have advertisement in newspaper and magazine. One reason is ads give us information about what is available. Looking at ads we can find out what is on sale and what is new in the market. This is an easy way of shopping. Another reason is that advertisement promotes business. When shop owners complete against each other the buyer savers money, more people come to their shops and they sell more goods.

On the other hand, some people argue ads should not be put in newspaper and magazines for these various reasons. Firstly, ads cost the shopkeepers a lot of money to print on to paper. Also some people don’t like finding junk mail in the letterboxes. People may also find the ads not very interesting. Ads also influence people to buy items they don’t need and can’t really afford. Ads use up a lot of space and a lot of effort has to be made to make the ads eye catching. Ads also take up a lot of room in the papers and I don’t think I find some of the interesting.

In summary, although ads provide people with information, they cost a lot of money to print. Therefore I think we should not have printed advertisement.

Multi Level Marketing (MLM), which has been mushrooming in Indonesia, still becomes debates among those who agree with the system and those who disagree. Here are some of the arguments

On the one hand, people believe that the strategy can improve people’s income and way of life. By selling products, an MLMer get an active income that is 20%-30% profit of the price of the products. If someone, says Mr. Arnold, can prospect people to become his/her down line, Mr. Arnold will also receive a percentage for the goods the down line buys. If the down line can also expand the network, Mr. Arnold will also get percentages.

Besides, it can develop one’s personality and encourage him/her to work harder. Because MLMs offer people financially freedom in the future, they will try to avoid feeling of worry and shy to prospect the products. MLM companies also conduct seminars and meetings to encourage people to work harder.

Many MLMer fail to prospect people either become the members of buy their products. Because MLMer is neither advertised nor sold in general markets. MLMers should spend more time to memorize and persuade people the quality of their products. This really needs much spirit.

Not all people agree the company’s promise to improve people’s income. The cons say that they see a cheesy, obvious, and blatant appeal to greed and materialism.

Although there are few reasons why people don’t want to follow MLM, it’s not as bad. It depend on how people control and motivate themselves. Moreover, the marketing strategy has been legalized by government, and has been the most expensive profession ever known.

The ethical issue about cheating is perhaps as old as education itself. The whole discussion generally ends with the question of whether cheating or letting others to cheat us during an exam is ethically wrong. Concerning the latter, there have been two opposing sides of opinion.

Some people say that letting other to cheat is ethically right. They say need to help one another. If other people let us copy their work, then there is a good reason to give similar assist to them. They also argue that if they cannot do a test, that is not in any way their fault. In fact, they don’t believe in test. Test according to them mean nothing. So, cheating doesn’t matter at all.

Meanwhile, those who oppose the practice ‘mutual cheating’ regard the habit as unacceptable, and will do no good to others. They say people will not learn for themselves if we always allow them to cheat us. Cheating each other’s work will make everyone get similar results and that sort of results will certainly be misleading. They who do not agree with letting other to cheat believe in helping themselves and urge others to do their own wok.

There is no final answer as to whether letting others to cheat is ethically or socially wrong. In fact, the practice of cheating is still common, and may have become a custom or habit, and even a serious problem in many classroom as in many places.

Assisted suicide, also called Voluntary Euthanasia, is currently a contentious issue in many countries. The question in the debate is this: if a person whose is suffering an illness that has medically declared incurable decides that they wish to end their life, is it acceptable for others to assist them?

Supporters of voluntary euthanasia contend that every human being has a right to life, and this right is perhaps the most logic and fundamental of all our right. However, with every right comes a choice. The right to speech does not remove the option to remain silent; the right to vote brings with it the right to abstain. In the same way, the right to choose to die is implicit in their right to life.

Those who oppose voluntary euthanasia, on the other hand, argue that there is no comparison between the rights to life and other right. When we choose to remain silent, we may change our mind at a later date; when you choose to die, you have no such second chance. Participating in someone’s death is also to participate in depriving them of all choices they might make in the future, and it’s therefore immoral.

Indeed, it is not easy to decide whether euthanasia can be justified morally. In fact, rightness and wrongness depend on the justification underlying the action.
