Ambiguity And Humor
5 pages in length. Humor is as much an interpretive device as cultural customs or personal experiences. To bypass the ambiguity inherently associated with humor is to realize the vast implications of syntax, language barriers and cultural "insider" aspects of content. The extent to which ambiguity simultaneously adds to and confounds the presence of humor is both grand and far-reaching; that this multiple meaning sometimes leads to confusion, misinterpretation or even misplaced irritation speaks to the fundamental relationship between humor and ambiguity.

Nursing Assistants and Multicultural Education
A 10 page paper discussing the education of nursing assistants from an immigrant population that is America's fastest-growing minority. Recruiters increasingly are looking to that growing Hispanic population as a possible solution to the nursing shortage. There can be several problems with recent immigrants, however. These include language barriers, not having completed a GED, limited healthcare, limited financial resources, and possible home issues. As the Hispanic population grows, health care facilities also see a rise in Hispanic patients. Overcoming cultural issues in education can assist in overcoming those same cultural issues in the health care facility. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
Language Barriers to Students from Indonesia, Japan, China, Croatia and Turkey Entering the United States
5 pages in length. International students entering the USA from Turkey, Croatia, China, Japan and Indonesia are bound to encounter communication errors and barriers that address the significant cultural differences these students may face when relocating to an entirely different country. With English being one of the most difficult languages to learn because of its syntax, phonology and morphology, it is easy to see why students from these countries might have a troublesome time integrating both culturally and linguistically.

Mexico, United States, and International Fashion Marketing
A 5 page research paper that examines the relations between Mexico and the US as they apply to the clothing and fashion industry. Many clothing and fashion manufacturers are taking advantage of the labor market in Mexico, sending down textiles that have been precut and are ready to sew, receiving back finished goods. In negotiating the terms of these agreements, both parties are prepared to get the very best deal that can maximize savings and still preserve quality. Details are crucial and have to be worked out across language and culture barriers. Bibliography lists 4 sources.
