    really struggling to find points for "To what extent do ethnic minorities influence the outcome of elections in the USA" any help appreciated
    I wrote a whole plan for that on either the page before or before that.

    Anyway, we have to realise that the DME was written 2 years ago. I'm sensing something to do with the referendum to be honest.

    against it you could say that the list of alcohols on the the list for the minimum price it is something like 24 out of the 36 are already above the minimum pricing? (you'd need to check that figure though)
    anybody got that statistic? thanks.

    Theres obviously the reserved and devolved powers

    and then the arguement for would be like introduction of AMS which is more proportionate, the public being able to take part in parliamentary process through submitting petitions and then against would be like, Funding from Westminster, Legislative consent motions.

    If anyone's interested I have some statistics for gender inequality (taken from an article, "Break that Glass", in the FT):

    7/10 working-age women in the UK are in jobs, which is above the OECD avg, yet this figure has increased little since 2000
    The proportion of females in full-time jobs is one of the lowest amongst developed economies
    The cost of childcare in UK = highest in Europe, bar Switzerland + Ireland, inflexible work arrangements

    Govt action to reduce burden on working mothers = fams with young children could receive a tax break of up to £2,000 to contribute to cost of childcare. Thus easier to share parental leave as mothers will be able to allocate their time off to fathers just 2 wks after child born.

    2013 study revealed that women comprise only 19% of senior management roles, down from 23% 2 yrs ago
    Female boardroom membership is at 13%, which is above the OECD avg yet below France and the Scandinavian countries

    Possible solution = quotas
    For example, the UK govt aims to have 25% of seats of FTSE 100 company boards filled by women, however its potential effectiveness is weakened because it's a voluntary scheme and many companies only tend to select women for non-exec roles.

    Apart from that and unrelated to the article, could we mention how the Scottish Parliament provides a crèche and has manageable working hours for women? It's just something which I remember from my SG days.
    Finally, if I were writing about collectivism vs individualism could I mention the debate over whether the NHS ought to treat illnesses that are the result of lifestyle choices?
    Thank you very much! I must apologise, however, as a gave you a red by accident instead of a green!

    Any predictions for Politics of Development in Africa?

    My teachers predictions were: trade rather than aid or aid from NGOs.

    From what I can gather here and from my teacher, it seems that NGOs and the UN are favoured to make an appearance.

    I can't think of much at the moment, but you could mention Jamie Oliver's healthy school meals campaign, yet its impact was limited as statistics show that nearly 5 million school children still avoid school lunches in England.

    How would you do a UNO essay?

    How would you do a UNO essay?
    I would firstly write a brief introductory sentence about how the UN aims to bolster development in Africa through its agencies. Then, I would write about 3-4 case studies, i.e. food vouchers in Burkina Faso, and how it helps to promote development and self-sufficiency, bla bla bla. In addition, I'd relate each example to the MDGs and how the UN hopes to meet them. I'd also probably discuss the limited success of the MDGs. For example, their goal was to halve world poverty by 2015, yet this is clearly not the case and then quote some statistics.
    That's just an idea, and it probably appears quite ramshackle, but I'm not sure how else I'd structure it.
