How can we foster a climate of acceptance and cultural pluralism in the United States?
All of America’s diversity, old and new, does not add up to pluralism. “Pluralism” and “diversity” are sometimes used as if they were synonyms, but diversity is just plurality, plain and simple — splendid, colorful, perhaps threatening. [ Pluralism is the engagement that creates a common society from all that plurality. On the same street in Silver Spring, Maryland the Vietnamese Catholic
church, the Cambodian Buddhist temple, the Ukranian Orthodox church, the Muslim Community Center, the Disciples of Christ church and the Mangal Mandir Hindu temple are all located in the same neighborhood. This is certainly diversity, but without any engagement or relationship with one another it may not be an instance of pluralism. Pluralism is only one of the possible responses to this diversity. Some people may feel threatened by diversity, or even hostile to it. Throughout American history there have been groups that have expressed prejudice and intolerance toward newcomers of other religions and cultures. Other people may look forward to the day when all these differences fade into the landscape of a predominantly Christian culture. Clearly the pluralism that would engage people of different faiths and cultures in the creation of a common society is not a “given,” but an achievement. ]

Trends in immigration will continue to shape the demographics of the United States. What will the U.S. population look like in the year 2050?
Weegy: On the other hand, one bigger possibility is that Americans will be protected by laws and economically thriving. There will be a boundary between work on citizens and immigrants, the immigrants being restricted and limited by laws of the land. U.S. [ population will look by then as old generation outnumbering the younger ones. Middle aged follows in the middle of the inverse pyramid structure and least numbered population will be the young ones. ] (More)

Weegy: hello how may i help you? User: Is this innovation likely to be a trend in the future? Explain why or why not Weegy: As a society, we're living longer and better than at any time in history. In part, this is due to pharmaceutical advances. [ [ Death rates are down, long-term disability is down, life expectancy is higher than ever, and we're making progress against the most serious diseases we face. As we consider the direction health care will take in the future, one thing is certain: new, innovative medicines will assume an increasingly prominent role in the way we improve the quality of care for future generations. One critical role of new medicines will be the prevention, treatment, and management of many diseases suffered by an the aging Baby Boomer generation. In the year 2000, there were roughly 35.6 million Americans age 65 and older. By 2030, this number is projected to double to an estimated 71.5 million. Diseases like diabetes and Alzheimer's represent a growing threat, not only to patients but to our ability to keep health care affordable. We know that we have to do better in our lifestyles and in our health care system to avoid an enormous disease burden and economic burden on the Boomers themselves, their families, employers, and federal and state governments. New pharmaceuticals are a vital part of the solution to this rapidly emerging issue. A Targeted Approach to Treatment Increasingly, the administration of new medicines will be guided by predictive evidence from genetic and other molecular tests. The expectation of ?personalized medicine? is that these tests will reveal whether an individual is likely to respond well to a drug, or avoid toxic side effects. A targeted approach to treatment can ensure that each patient receives the right medicine at the right time. About a dozen of such treatments are in use today, and the field is growing rapidly. Since molecular diagnostic tests can reveal a patient?s susceptibility to disease, they ... (More)

In what ways do the media perpetuate stereotyping and prejudice?
Weegy: Media perpetuates stereotyping and prejudice in a way that of being biased to one factions rather than the other. [ Media stereotypes are inevitable, especially in the advertising, entertainment and news industries, which need as wide an audience as possible to quickly understand information. Stereotypes act like codes that give audiences a quick, common understanding of a person or group of people—usually relating to their class, ethnicity or race, gender, sexual orientation, social role or occupation. This means that media stereotypes probably fueled prejudice. ] (More)
