  • About 2 years ago, I developed a severe case of vaginal yeast infection that would not let up. The itching, burning and swelling of my labia were simply unbearable. I have purchased several over-the-counter treatments, including Monistat cream to subside the symptoms. While it worked initially, eventually things wore off and left me with an even worse infection than before. The same goes for the antibiotics I took with the advice of my doctor. I felt horrible. After doing some research online, I guessed I had a yeast infection and purchased your program. The results were almost instantaneous. In less than 7 hours, I felt a tremendous relief. Two weeks later and I became completely free from the unbearable vaginal itching, burning, swelling and discharge. Using your methods, I have kept my chronic yeast infection at bay ever since. No more drugs or OTC�s for me. ◆◆◆ http://scamcb.com/index7/pdf

  • Hello, I'm 45 and have battled with severe Yeast Infection for the last nine years. A month and a half ago, I stumbled across your Yeast Infection No More program. I had my doubts and didn't think it was the right program for my Yeast Infection or if it was going to work at all, but I did order it because I'll do anything to rid myself of this crippling condition. Over 3 week period, I have seen an improvement that I had never experienced with any other conventional or so called natural treatment. The non-stop vaginal itching and burning have stopped. My skin looks significantly better and I slowly got rid of the psoriasis on my right elbow that I had for years. I can now save the money that I would have wasted on drugs like Monistat and Diflucan. Your suggestions have kept my vaginal yeast infections as well as the other candida related symptoms at bay incredibly well! I also lost about 15 lbs! I am feeling so healthy, too. ♣♣♣ http://scamcb.com/index7/pdf

  4. 4. INTRODUCTION The George Mason Drive community is a small community, which is located in the District of Lawrence Tavern, St. Andrew. It entails restaurants, a pharmacy, police station, post office, wholesalers & retailers, bars hardware stores etc. It is estimated to be 15 miles from the nation’s capital, Kingston. I have been a resident of George Mason Drive for the past 16 years, and during this time I have monitored an escalation in the unemployment rate within this community. Unemployment is the condition of having no job or receiving no salary or payment in a specified field of work. As a result, I have decided to organize an assessment to investigate the level of unemployment of persons within my community.
  5. 5. STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Topic: Unemployment What are the causes and effects of unemployment in George Mason Drive, Lawrence Tavern?
  6. 6. REASON FOR SELECTING TOPIC The reason for selecting this topic is because it is the foremost problem in my community, thus it is important that an investigation be carried out to discover the causes, effects and possible solutions to this problem. Unemployment in my community seems to be the foundation of a variety of social problems. The crisis created when parents lose their jobs has had an effect in providing the basic need of food, clothing, shelter and education for their families, in addition, young people leaving high school and universities have been finding it more difficult to find jobs. The activity of idle hands has caused an upsurge in loitering, theft, and appears to be the leading cause of gang formation, resulting in negative behaviour and influences. There is also the sense of hopelessness, inactiveness and health related problems such as depression, when persons who should be employed are not working. However, while government has the power of promoting economic stability and decreasing unemployment, the education system must also take responsibility for providing skills and training for young people and the unemployed. Training and retraining for available jobs needs to be accessible to all who should be working, in order to decrease unemployment. I also urge that skills learnt should be used to create self- employment in order to avoid the downfalls of unemployment.
  7. 7. METHOD OF INVESTIGATION To investigate the problem, I have selected to assemble printed questionnaires, in order to pull together information for the survey. The questionnaire as a tool for collecting data has a number of advantages:  It can be done at the accessibility of the persons required to have it completed.  It is classified as persons are not obliged to write their names (ID)  It requires little time to be completed.
  8. 8. INSTRUMENT USED TO COLLECT DATA Dear citizens, I have prepared a survey which is being carried out in this community, to find out the level of unemployment within this area. This survey is being conducted as an assignment for my Social Studies SBA that I’m currently undertaking. I have decided to use a questionnaire, which requires no personal information from citizen. You are advised to answer the following questions honestly, since you are not required to write any names anywhere, no one will ever know what your answers are. There are no wrong or right answers. All of the questions can be answered by a simple tick in the box. Example. Sex. Male Female Yours Truly, Raheme Matthie

  12. 12. PROCEDURE USED TO COLLECT DATA The community of George Mason Drive has approximately 50 households. It was calculated that 100% was necessary in order to acquire a precise conclusion on the ratio of employed to unemployed persons in the entire community (100% of 50 = 50). A total of 50 questionnaires were organized and distributed among members of the community. I therefore decided to choose the households by the process of random selection. 50 slips were prepared each was distributed among all households. These persons were given one week to complete the questionnaires that were issued. A total of 50 questionnaires were collected at the end of the one week period.
  13. 13. PRESENTATION AND EXPLANATION OF DATA A total of 50 questionnaires were distributed to the citizens, in which all were returned. Of these respondents, 62% were males and 38% were females. Figure1. It can be observed that 62% of the respondents in the George Mason Drive community are unemployed, while the other 38% are employed. 38% 62% PIE CHART SHOWING # OF PERSONS THAT ARE EMPLOYED/UNEMPLOYED Employed Unemployed

Responsibilities accumulated 4% of the respondents. 16% of respondents said that lack of resources was their answers for not completing school. Other problems accumulated 14% of the respondents.
  20. 20. INTERPRETATION OF DATA In doing my survey of George Mason Drive, out of 50 persons, 31 are males while the other 19 are females. The information that was gathered stated that 75% of respondents did not complete school; this was because of a number of factors. These factors include: peer pressure, financial problems, responsibilities, lack of resources, and other problems. Peer pressure is one of the major factors why persons did not complete school out of 50 persons, 20 persons succumbed to peer pressure, which involved: smoking, drinking excessively, fighting, caring illegal weapons etc. 13 persons had difficulty with financial problems, these include: difficulty with lunch money and paying school fee.2 persons had different responsibilities to take care of such as: disabled relatives, pregnancy and a child or children. 8 persons were lack in resources such as stationeries, a pair of shoe, uniforms, and a school bag. Then lastly the remaining 7 persons had other problems. Age group of persons who are involved in the questionnaire, out of 100% of the respondents, the highest amount of respondents came from the ages 19-25 yrs which accounted for 46% (23 persons) . The second highest count came from the ages 26-30 yrs which had 30% (15 persons) responding, between the ages 16-18 years 14% (7 persons) responded, and 10% (5 persons) were between the ages 41yrs & over. It can be concluded that the ages between 19-25 yrs received and answered the questionnaire mostly and the ages between 41 yrs & over received and answered the questionnaire least. Figure 5 shows the relationship between employed and unemployed females, out of 100%. 80% (40 persons) showed that most females are employed, and 20% (10 persons) shows that the least number of females are unemployed. In this survey it can be concluded that there are more employed females, than there are employed females. The relationship shown between employed and unemployed males, out of 100%, 70% (35 persons) the majority portrays unemployed males, the remaining 30% (15 persons) shows employed males. It is indicated that most males are either having difficulty finding a job or are not looking for a job, thus they are unemployed, and lesser amounts of males currently have a job.
  21. 21. The persons seeking a job, out of 100% in this diagram it can be shown that more persons are seeking a job than those who aren’t. The number of persons not seeking shows 38% or (19 persons) could include: persons over the legal working age (for males 70 and females 62), persons who are disabled. 62% or (31 persons) are currently seeking a job reason why could include poverty. The economic level or “the price for living” is getting higher and higher each year; these are factors that contribute to people being unemployed and seeking jobs. Many persons want to live a better life for themselves and their family so they often times head out into the job market looking to find a job. Ways in which unemployed persons maintain the needs and wants of their child/children. Out of 100% of the respondents, 40% which accounted for (20 persons) receive help from family members which included clothes, books, money, and other essentials. 20% which accounted for (10 persons) say they receive help from hustling. These acts include: selling goods and or services. 30% (15 persons) of the respondents beg to provide for their child needs. 10% or (5 persons) received help from the government. None of the respondents selected that stealing was a means of providing for their child/children needs. Due to these results, it can be concluded that most persons in the area are supported by family members. In figure 1 it can be observed that there is a greater number of unemployed persons living in the community of George Mason Drive, and lesser are employed. 62% (31 persons) accounted for unemployed persons whilst, 38% or (19 persons) accounted for employed persons.
  22. 22. FINDINGS During my research I have acquired a compilation of information with which regards to unemployment in George Mason Drive. These are as follows:  58% or (29) of the respondents from the questionnaire are males.  Most unemployed persons maintain their child/children needs, primarily with the aid of family members.  40% of persons who have responded are from the ages 19-25. This means that the mean age of unemployed persons are from these age groups.
  23. 23. RECOMMENDATIONS The importance of persons being employed plays a major part in our society today; it simply means that less persons would be unemployed, hence resulting in a significant drop in the unemployment rate within the community and the country at large. Community members should see to it that both parents and children are educated, so as to have a better chance of being employed in the future. Unemployment is one of the leading causes of crime and violence, this is because people’s time is not being occupied by some sort of activity (job), and therefore I recommend more jobs for persons who are illiterate, skilled and unskilled and those who haven’t completed school. I strongly recommend the local government and the necessary authorities be notified about the lack of jobs within our economy and also to inform the public about the causes and effects of unemployment. This can be achieved by broadcasting the information via the media which includes: 1. The television 2. Radio 3. Newspaper Also the government can go about this by dispatching social workers to different communities, advising them about unemployment. In the process of making these recommendations the strategies that I would implement, to undertake these problems are as follows:  The intervention of the local government and labor organizations to develop more job schemes based on specialized skills and advising them on the state of unemployment within our community, and asking them to provide more jobs for all groups of people.  Institute measures so that all children attend, at least primary school.  Invite guess speakers to attend a forum, to advise the community about the causes and effects of unemployment.
