The gap between black and white test score is a robust empirical regularity (Fryer & Levitt, 2004). This gap remains almost constant even after experiments are conducted under controlled variables that include neighborhood characteristics, quality of schools, socioeconomic status and family structure. Therefore, comprehending the key underlying causes of this gap in test score, especially in math is of great importance. This will lead towards formulation of strategies and measures, which are aimed at ensuring that the gap decreases and African Americans will have improved and better scores in math. Math is an essential subject, which influences each and everything that individuals interact with in the modern life.
Bhagavad Gita is the holy scripture in Hinduism and it is considered to be one of the most important work pieces in this religion. This book is believed to contain the advice given by Lord Krishna to Arjuna in the battle of Kurukshetra. Lord Krishna is one of the incarnations of Vishnu, a supreme deity in Hinduism and he is known to have helped the Pandavas or the good people win over the Kauravas or the bad people in the Battle of Kurukshetra. During this battle, one of the Pandava brothers, Arjuna, is confused about his role and why he should fight the battle at all. This is why Lord Krishna advises him about the good winning over the evil and the role that Arjuna should play in the same.
The modern society is facing a lot of problems related to environment.

A major catastrophe facing us today is the global warming.

Various scholars from different contexts and perspectives have analyzed the questions of diversity (Colgan & Ledwith, 2004; Francoeur et al., 2008). Let us draw attention to the gender diversity, which is essential in people’s daily activities and communication. I have chosen the video on gender diversity, which is about the stereotypes regarding the roles of males and females (YouTube, 2013).
Existentialism is defined as the study of being. It is a philosophy that struggles to find the true meaning and purpose of life. Existentialism therefore deals with the choices and ambiguity brought about by the circumstances that man must deal with when making life choices. In its explanation, existentialism states that the decision is important because it defines us as human beings and that every time we make a choice, we do it for the whole mankind since it is that act of choosing or decision that we create what it means to be human (The Atheist Scholar, 2012).
According to Blanchard and Phil (15) situational leadership involves making use of a leadership style that is appropriate for the followers in a team or one that is right for the people being led. My perspective is that one kind of leadership style is not enough. The style of leadership should be changed in line with the level of development of the followers in order for it to be effective. The leadership style to be employed is influenced by the maturity levels shown by team members.
The book illustrates the dynamic ideas that shape black politicians, intellectuals, and social movement activists’ behavior as they participate in U.S foreign issues towards Africa. The author is an African descendant interested in knowledge on racism. This is because of the rich and reassuring conversations he had on race relations from his immediate family and the shadow of civil rights associations. At the same time, his parents had exposed him to the realities of Africa through art, museums, and books hence able to counter psychological assault by the whites.
Question 1. A function assigns a unique output value to every input value. This definition implies that a vertical line cannot intersect a function in more than one place (Stewart). The set of input values is known as the domain of a function. The set of output values is known as the range of a function.
An example of a linear function is,
f left (x right ) = 4x+3
Clinical and non-clinical methods to treat ADHD has gathered momentum ever since, the syndrome of this disorder began to surface alarmingly in children. ADHD is mostly associated with emotional and behavioral disorders and because of this, professionals find it difficult to diagnose. It can therefore be said that ADHD is more than the inability to focus; it is a self-regulatory disorder. Such symptoms as inattentiveness and impulsiveness occur across a range of childhood problems and can be misleading.
