1.2 Hukum adat, peraturan, dan undang-undang yang diamalkan oleh setiap negara - Bentuk, peranan, dan pelaksanaannya

Hukum adat merupakan undang-undang lisan yang diperturunkan daripada satu generasi kepada satu generasi yang lain melalui pertuturan. Hukum adat merupakan undang-undang awal yang dilaksanakan oleh kebanyakan negara di Asia. Hukum adat telah lama diamalkan oleh masyarakat tempatan di negara-negara Asia sebelum kedatangan Barat. Mengikut sejarah, hukum adat dikaitkan dengan segala bentuk adat resam yang menjadi amalan kebiasaan sesuatu masyarakat. Adat ini diamalkan secara turun temurun sehingga akhirnya berubah menjadi peraturan atau hukum yang harus dipatuhi. Hal ini menyebabkan hukum adat juga dikenali sebagai resam.

Hukum adat di negara-negara Asia menjadi : a) peraturan bagi mengawal tingkah laku dan perlakuan anggota masyarakat b) panduan kepada sesuatu masyarakat untuk mengekalkan keharmonian dan keadilan c) panduan menjamin keamanan semua anggota masyarakat dalam sesebuah negara d) panduan membentuk sistem nilai yang akan membentuk keperibadian sesuatu masyarakat seperti amalan berkeluarga, bersosial, sistem ekonomi, dan sebagainya e) simbol keseimbangan di antara manusia dengan manusia dan di antara manusia dengan alam untuk memastikan keseimbangan itu akan berterusan agar tidak berlaku kemusnahan alam yang akan menimbulkan malapetaka terhadap manusia f) panduan membentuk hubungan yang erat dalam kalangan anggota masyarakat seperti konsep permuafakatan dan ikatan bekerjasama yang diamalkan dalam masyarakat di Asia

Manner of Speech

...Research papers are the backbone of many college courses and probably the least favorite assignment for students taking the course. Too often you will find yourself starting a paper a few days or even the night before it is due and many of those times you won't even have a topic for your research paper picked out. If you are one of these people who go this route and aren't too happy with the results you have been getting then perhaps it is time to change your approach. Choosing a paper topic doesn't have to be a painful decision like deciding between a punch to the face and a kick to the stomach. It can be a great learning experience and an assignment you will no longer find difficult once you have figured out how to tackle it in a timely manner. Know what the assignment is When your professor informs you of the research paper take the time to understand right off the bat what it actually entails. I know that I used to not really read the prompt until a few weeks down the line when I was ready to start researching the paper and this was a huge mistake. Knowing what your assignment is helps to give you some defined parameters for the research and let's you focus on what you want to write about instead of what you are supposed to do. If you are unclear at all go and talk to the professor and see if he can explain it better or even suggest some areas that you could explore for your paper. Choose a topic that interests you Not all classes we have to take are all that interesting......

...and use manners. When we were all young, our parents "trained" us to use the pleases and thankyous, to share, and to be courteous to the people around us. Now, all of those things are common sense to us. Although, there are many manners that we don't know, and some of them are pretty ridiculous! For instance, it is actually impolite to say "pardon" after blowing your nose in front of someone. The correct response is "sorry" or nothing at all. Have you ever written in red pen? It is considered disrespectful to the reader if you write in coloured pen other than blue, unless of course you are a teacher. If you're planning on having a conversation with someone any time soon, listen to these tips. You should never have your hands on your lap when you are talking to someone, and never tilt your head when listening. These gestures are said to show disinterest in the topic. Who would think that there was a proper posture for having a casual conversation with someone? After hearing all of those manners, you're probably wondering who came up with all this funny stuff? Well, Today no one is really sure where it all started, but we are guessing that in prehistoric times people discovered that acting pleasant around each other made life more enjoyable. But what we do know is that many years later, in the 16 and 1700's, French Royal Court nobles started making up rules and called them "etiquette". These men claimed that they were, as usual, bored so they came up with manners to have...

Comedy of Manners

...Write a note on "Pygmalion as a comedy" of manners. Comedies of manners are plays which are "set in the world of the upper class, and ridicule the pretensions of those who consider themselves socially superior, deflating them with satire. With witty dialogue and cleverly constructed scenarios, comedies of manners comment on the standards and mores of society and explore the relationships of the sexes." The play Pygmalion is many things, and one of those is certainly a comedy of manners. Pygmalion is less of a farce than the earlier comedies of manners.  While there are certainly miscommunications (especially at the beginning between Eliza and Higgins) they generally don't create changes to the plot.  But in several other respects Pygmalion is a comedy of manners; most especially in its satire of both the upper and lower classes. Higgins, though a respected figure and "professor of phonetics" is an example of much of what is wrong, in Shaw's mind, with the upper class of Britain -- particularly the upper class intellectual male (a class to which Shaw, himself, belonged!)  Higgins is a master of his subject, and, as he boasts, is not only able to place with minute accuracy London accents, but is able to train the most entrenched Cockney accents (Eliza's) into the tones of Mayfair.  But with all his learning and accomplishments Higgins has left his humanity behind.  He has to be forced (with only limited success, by Mrs. Pearce, Eliza, and Colonel Pickering) to understand that......

Asian Culture thing that many people can agree with, is the food. As for me, that's one of my favorite things about being Haitian-Dominican decent as I get to eat the amazing food. But another culture who's food is a big part of their being, are Asians and their style of cooking and what they eat and what they make, and etc. So I thought, why not visit or get in depth with another culture whose food is a huge part of their being. And for this paper, I've decided to get into Asian food and how it differs from my culture as well as the importance it plays in their culture. To continue, as I began to think of where I can go to try real Asian food to really speak on for this essay, I remembered about my neighbor. My neighbor whom is of Chinese descent owns restaurant called 'Asia Town'. When I approached him about wanting to learn about different Asian foods and taste them, he invited me for a free meal at his restaurant to try some of his popular dishes. He even explained to me that a lot of his food is cooked by himself and though he gets help from his mother, he makes sure to keep the 'Asian style' in his food. A lot of popular buffets make their food 'mainstream' according to him and he mentioned to me, his restaurant was the best place to try real Asian food. Furthermore, as I entered his restaurant on September 12th and there wasn’t too many people in the restaurant and therefore he wanted to give me a ‘taste’ of his culture’s cuisine. He explained to me that there are......

Asian Americans

...Jose Cruz Asian-Americans Soc/262-Contemporary American Society Nantrece Carraby August 10, 2015 Asian Americans According to the United States Census Bureau the definition of Asians refers to those people of origins of any original peoples of Southeast Asia, Far East, and or the Indian subcontinent. Asian Americans cover four point eight percent of the United States population. Asian Americans tend to have the highest educational accomplishments and income compared to other races. Along with other races and ethnicities Asian Americans have a remarkable thorough history. Analysis Cultural value of Asians towards education Educational goals from Asian American parents play a vast role in their children’s occupational outcomes. Many Asian American parents share common interest in educational goals for their children due to similar cultural backgrounds in Confucian ideology. Confucius taught that everyone that is human possessed the same potentials, and that education was the corrective means to restrain from any tendencies that will stray from ethical behaviors. Asian parents tend to spend much more time with their children to drive them harder, sometimes even at the cost of their personal time and ambitions of the parents themselves. Their parents view their children as trees that need trimming as they get older. Many people believe that Asian parents are dominating but, parents according to Confucius ideology are to give their children all the......

...Al Lopez Lopez1 Mr. Berrett Public Speaking January 28th, 2016 “Are Manners Really That Important?” As a child growing up in the United States during the late 70’s and early 80’s “manners’” were a huge part of my upbringing. Not only were manners being taught to me at home, they were also being taught and reinforced at school. I never really thought of it as having a sensitive awareness to the feelings of others. I just figured at the time, it was just the way my family did things. Little did I know that the manners I was being taught would serve a purpose throughout my life. Today as I look around, whether I’m out in public, work or even within my own family, I must say there are very little signs of any basic manners being taught anymore. So my question is how important are manners in todays society? So what are manners, where did they come from and what purpose do they serve? Well let’s start with the very definition of the word manners. (manners) polite or well-bred social behavior, social conduct: According to John Daly founder and president of the key class. Today’s etiquette is said to have been started by the French. It started in the royal courts in the early 1600’s and 1700’s. King Louie the XIV had his gardener put up signs called “etiquettes” when he found that the......

Sustainable Manners

...Universidad Sergio Arboleda Environmental Issues Erika Bello Lucia Castaño Jorge Gamba Leidy Navarro Are we living on our planet in a sustainable manner? Nowadays we can see how a lot of people talks about environmental awareness and put in action plans to recover what humanity have taken away from the planet, but the matter is that not everyone applies these policies, so we can question about the manner that we live in the Earth and its impact. First at all it is important to highlight that the planet has been involved in some dramatic climate changes through the time, since the last ice age the earth started the tropical age, and for that reason the earth is warmer than 100 years ago. However, this is not only caused for natural changes; this is also generated by human (actions) decisions taken about the appropriate or inappropriate use of all natural resources. The climate changes that were exposed, directly affect the way that we live, but one of the main problems is the increase of the ocean´s level and in the same way the increase of garbage within its waters. This problem affects in two dramatic positions: 1. The garbage that is found inside of the oceans causes problems in wildlife, since the whole habitat is affected directly and this generates an effect in the sea-life and the continuity of the population. Inside this problem we identify the people’s need for food, in this sense, as time goes by the marine biodiversity is......

...Why manners are important in today's society. I think manners are important in today's society because it's a personality trait that's good to have. It's practically a necessity. Great manners help you through a lot of life's obstacles for different reasons. Consideration is a reason why manners are important which goes along with your maturity level and how polite you can be on a daily basis. It shows you're a decent person, and that you understand and have respect for the people around you. Manners are very important when it comes to a good social life, ever since elementary school we were taught to use our manners and be polite to the people we tal k to everyday. People judge you all the time, it's just a way of life, and having great manners brings off a positive response and attitude toward other people, and people will unconsciously think of you as a polite and caring person. Another reason that manners exist for a good reasons is, coexistence. Without polite people around, and well manners, coexistence between humans would be quite difficult I think. Manners are just the guidelines to peaceful coexistence between people, and without it, I think it would be a different kind of society to be living in, kind of like animals. Without manners it would be kind of difficult to have a social life, get a job, have any sort of relationship with people etc. Most of the time we don't think about using our manners everyday, but because it has such a big impact on......
