What does the ADA provide for people with disabilities?
ADA provide legal protection for people with disabilities; People with epilepsy, spinal cord injuries, schizophrenia, AIDS, deafness, blindness, mental retardation, [ and major learning disabilities would be examples of individuals who are "covered" by the ADA. That means that they are entitled to some legal protection using the provisions of the ADA (which we will soon learn about). On the
other hand, individuals with minor conditions which only last a short time - such as sprained ankles, broken limbs, or the flu - generally would not be covered. The Americans with Disabilities Act, also known as Public Law 101-336, is a civil rights law. It makes it illegal to discriminate based on disability in several different areas of life. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in: employment, services rendered by state and local governments, places of public accommodation, transportation, telecommunications services.

What is the status of GLBT people in the U.S. today?
Weegy: begin considering how countries treat gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender citizens when allocating foreign aid, [ President Obama announced today. [ "I am deeply concerned by the violence and discrimination targeting LGBT persons around the world," Obama said in a memorandum.

Obama said, "I am directing all agencies engaged abroad to ensure that U.S. diplomacy and foreign assistance promote and protect the human rights of LGBT persons." Among the president's orders: - Combat criminalization of LGBT status or conduct abroad. - Protect vulnerable LGBT refugees and asylum seekers. - Render assistance to protect human rights and advance non-discrimination. - Respond swiftly and meaningfully to abuses of LGBT people abroad. - Engage international organizations in the fight against LGBT discrimination. - Report on progress.

What are some social and political issues relevant to women and GLBT people in the U.S.?
Weegy: Women's rights around the world is an important indicator to understand global well-being. A major global women?s rights treaty was ratified by the majority of the world?s nations a few decades ago. [ [ [ Yet, [ despite many successes in empowering women, numerous issues still exist in all areas of life, ranging from the cultural, political to the economic. For example, women often work more than men, yet are paid less; gender discrimination affects girls and women throughout their lifetime; and women and girls are often are the ones that suffer the most poverty. Many may think that women?s rights are only an issue in countries where religion is law, such as many Muslim countries. Or even worse, some may think this is no longer an issue at all. But reading this report about the United Nation?s Women?s Treaty and how an increasing number of countries are lodging reservations, will show otherwise. Gender equality furthers the cause of child survival and development for all of society, so the importance of women?s rights and gender equality should not be underestimated. ] ] ] (More)

If a person in a wheelchair is in a building that has high accessibility, does he or she still have a disability? In other words, does disability only exist in spaces where a person is not able to function or move around like a person who doesn’t have that disability?
Weegy: This is an excellent question. My personal opinion is that disability is relative to the rest of society and the environment; I am disabled because I cannot walk, and that doesn't change even in a perfect environment. [ [ [ However, if I'm in a place that's perfectly adapted to accommodate me and my wheelchair, I'm not impaired at all. ] User: In the United States, adults over age 65 or 70 tend to be less and less visible in mainstream activities, in organizations, and in the workplace. One theory assigns this to ageism. Do you think that is the best explanation for this phenomenon? If so, why do you think so? If not, what do you think is the best alternative explanation? (More)

What do you think is the most common expression of ageism?
Weegy: The most common type of ageism is the stereotype that most old people are sick, senile, sexually impotent, ugly, isolated, poor and miserable (Palmore, 1998). [ Erman Palmore writes, "In fact, research has shown that none of these stereotypes applies to the vast majority of people over 65. The most common types of discrimination are in employment, training, some government agencies, some families, housing, and health care." ] (More)
