Video Title: we can end poverty, but this is we haven’t

Date: 1 January 1970

  1. What is being discussed in the video? Explain your answer.
    Teva explained that before she ran “blocks of hope” to poor or unfortunate people, she just focused on immediate needs without addressing issues that keep poor people in that condition. So she decided to break down the crushing system that keeps people there. Instead of deciding to “doing things with people” instead of “doing things for people,”. Instead of providing direct sources, it is better for us to build equity in a community by reforming systems and policies. Approaching and collaborating with the dual generation, parents and children. started by setting audacious goals, committing to a long process of trial and error, dedicating resources and researching the main problem, and utilizing the expertise of experts, government officials, and businessmen.

Video Title: What causes poverty?

Date: 1 January 1970

  1. What is being discussed in the video? Explain your answer.
    Timor-Leste is one of Australia’s poorest neighbours. On the other hand, according to the UN, Australia is one of the wealthiest countries in the world to live in. Global inequality is complex, but at its root, it’s caused by a mix of human and physical factors. Conditions that are difficult for human well-being include poor soil, isolated and mountainous areas, landlocked regions without access to ports, and increased vulnerability to natural disasters. Add human factors like discrimination and corruption by leaders that bring war and conflict or sign unfair trade rules with powerful countries, and poor infrastructure that limits access to education, clean water, and health care, and the conditions are made even harder for human well-being. The good news is that people aren’t just part of the problem; they are also part of the solution. poverty and spatial inequality can be addressed and are being addressed a girl has a disability or live in a war zone, you’re more likely to live in poverty. There is a range of economic, social, technological, political, and environmental causes for poverty and inequality. Some of Australia’s neighbours live in nations that are stuck in a cycle of poor infrastructure, low investment, and low trade. Some are particularly vulnerable to climate change and geographic isolation, especially in rural areas. If countries are poor, that means governments struggle to provide essential services or opportunities for all of their people. Good schools, hospitals, safe water, and roads take a lot of money to build and maintain if communities are poor, isolated, or vulnerable to environmental disasters, it’s difficult for families to thrive; it’s hard to find employment, access health services, and build safe homes and a better future for children if parents are more, they can’t afford to send their children to school, get them immunized, or provide them with enough food to eat when generation after generation suffers from sickness, a lack of education, and opportunities to earn a fair wage; the cycle of poverty threatens to repeat itself again and again and again

    Based on the video that has already been watched. Poverty porn is generally any type of media whether it’s a written photograph or film that exploits our fantasies properly to gain sympathy and usually for entertainment purposes. actually, poverty porn doesn’t start in this era, but a long time ago, in the 80s, we have already been watching unethical things, such as starving children and many others yet we didn’t realize it. After the content-driven era, some audiences gradually understand, if there is a problem in this situation.

Video Title: Myths and money in Britain’s ‘poverty porn’ industry | The Listening Post

Date: 1 January 1970

  1. What is being discussed in the video? Explain your answer.
    those narratives and those kind of images create and sustain divisions with two deserving and undeserving populations so between co-workers and shuckers between welfare dependence and hard-working families the whole set up of these programs is around there being like a lemon or telling everybody in this studio and you’re telling everybody who’s watching right now that we’re mugs that we’re idiots we’re fools. poverty porn is a pretty accurate reflection on this idea of watching poor people for entertainment and reading about poor people newspapers when it’s it’s for entertainment as opposed to an actual insight into these people’s lives I’d be quite offended if people thought that benefits . Britain told the stories of people who live their lives with limited resources there’s no reason why you shouldn’t tell their story if you’re putting programs out about people whose lives and on benefits and who live in poverty and those programs rate well then program makers will just continue to make those programs and that’s exactly it these programs rate well but did they actually portray reality take the benefits cheap trope in the 2015-16 tax year.
