What is the relationship between legal and ethical issues as shown in the film? * * Introduction *
The film selected was called the Second Line located at for this assignment. In review this information one will see that the world does not revolve our daily actions of life. The film gave a different approach in viewing the world and surrounding.

The Second Line

The purpose of this short film was to display how many individuals go about their lives living in a tunnel vision world. In the film Danny Glover the actor was shown as a business man who did not pay any attention to anything in his surrounding as he journey to work. In the world of which we all live many people are so caught up in their own world, not even taken the time to smell the flowers. People who tend to live in such a matter are not just blind to their own needs but also the needs of their community.

The term tunnel visions which can be describe as one who is only focus on things within narrow vision. The main character of this film display this very term. This short film showed the main character who started out his day having car trouble. He really did not try any other options to see what the problem with his vehicle was. His goal was to get to work due to time that reflected on his watch. The issue I took from the film is neglect in not broadening his horizon in contributing to his community. As citizen there are times one must give back to the community of which they live in helping it grown and become as one with thy surrounding neighbors.

In the film the role that external social pressures had in influencing ethics was that of paying it forward. At times big companies…...

...Learning Team Assignment: Reflection Reflection Objective 1.1 Evaluate individual characteristics of employees Characteristics of employees can vary from; age, gender, disability, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation, biographical characteristics, race, and ethnicity. Some employers see positive qualities with hiring older workers such as the older workers are more likely to have judgment, experience, and a strong work ethic. The negative to hiring an older worker as appose to a younger worker is that older workers tend to be more set in their ways and are not open to change. Gender does not play a huge role in employee selection as much as it did in the past. One main issue when it comes to gender is that working mothers are more likely to prefer working part- time and flexible work schedules. Race and ethnicity is a very controversial issue to speak on. The main races that are mostly compared are African Americans and Whites. It is proven that in employment settings people tend to favor the colleagues that are of their own race in different aspects of the job; whether it is for pay raises, promotions or performance evaluations.

...Final Reflection “Has there ever been a time when we have not been awash in a remarkable torrent of symbols and opportunities for reading and writing them?” (William Kist, in the NCTE statement on multimodal literacies) There is an art of reading, an art of thinking, and an art of writing. To read is to fly: it is to soar beyond what it seen on the pages. We write to taste life, in the moment we live and in retrospect of the past. Reading helps develop thought, instead of having to think for yourself. Once you learn to read, you will be forever free. When reading this quote I believe that there is always something interesting being offered in which we can both read and write about. Everyday, there has to be a moment which is better than all the other moments, a moment that makes you smile or laugh, something memorable, something you can look back at and smile because that’s how memorable it was. These are moments in which we can write about to share, because someone out there must be able to connect with this moment and share that smile you had when you experienced it. As well as someone being willing to read it. There are tons of opportunities available for people. Moving on from first semester to second semester I can definitely see how my skills as a writer and a reader has improved. As I read text I can now understand deeper meanings and connect things to other sources or personal connections I’ve made. My work habits and ideas have grown to the......

...Reflection Walden University Introduction to philosophy PHIL 1001 How can you prove weather at this moment we are sleeping, and all our thoughts are a dream; or weather we are awake, and talking to one another in the waking state? Plato For this reflection I founded it fascinating to consider different understanding of reality, I really enjoyed Plato Alegory of the cave amazing piece of art work what a great philosopher for that time period, also movie Matrix great movie directed by Wanch brothers. So questions we can all ask ourselves: Are things we see around us real, are they our reality, and how do we know that for sure, how do we know if we are dreaming or not. These are questions that unfortunately are out of our reach and only time will answer. The Alegory of the cave is a famous story from the Plato Republic, it is a profound allegory with many interpretation, and in this reflection I will compare it to the movie Matrix, and my view of reality. “ Imagine the condition of men living in a sort of cavernous chamber underground, with an entrance open to the light and a long passage all down the cave. Here they have been from childhood, chained by the leg and also by the neck, so that they cannot move and can see only what is in front of them, because the chain will not let them turn their heads. At some distance higher up is the light of a fire burning behind them, and between the prisoners and the fire is a track with a parapet built......

...1 Reflection Reflection is an everyday process. We reflect on a range of everyday problems and situations all the time: What went well? What didn’t? Why? How do I feel about it? We don’t usually follow a formula for this, it just happens as feelings, thoughts and emotions about something gradually ‘surface’. We might choose to do something differently, or not, as a result of reflecting, but reflection is essentially a kind of loose processing of thoughts and feelings about an incident, a meeting, a day – any event or experience at all. Reflection can be a more structured way of processing in order to deal with a problem. This type of reflection may take place when we have had time to stand back from something, or talk it through, as in: ‘On reflection, I think you might be right’, or ‘On second thoughts, I realised he was more upset than me.’ Structured reflection If we consciously reflect, maybe as part of our work or family role, there tends to be a rough process of ‘How did it go? What went well? Why? What didn’t? Why? What next?’ Examples might be of a football coach reflecting after a match, a teacher reflecting on a lesson, or simply a parent thinking about how best to deal with a teenager. In this kind of reflection, the aim is to look carefully at what happened, sort out what is really going on and explore in depth, in order to improve, or change something for next time. This brief guide will look at what is meant by reflection, suggest forms of structured...

...experience of learning from reflection on giving intramuscular (IM) injections, using Gibbs's (1988) reflective model. I demonstrate how practice anxiety, as a student nurse, can be dealt with through effective mentoring. I chose the seminal theory of Gibbs reflection on practice, as it illustrates six significant stages; description, feelings, evaluation, analysis of the incident, conclusion and an action plan Ghaye and Lillyman (1997). Gibbs cycle is used throughout the process of reflecting on the incident to help me make sense of my practice and understand what l could do differently to enhance good practice. I use my experience from a placement simulation as I could not be on actual placement due to unforeseen circumstances. Reflection is a process through which healthcare practitioners and students can learn from experience and use the knowledge to inform and improve practice Schon, (1983). The ability to reflect on one's actions is particularly imperative in clinical practice and discourse. As Jarvis (1992) asserted, there is no consensus on the definition of reflection as it is a broad concept. Reid (1993, p305.) define reflection as; “a course of action reviewing an occurrence of practice to describe, analyse, evaluate and so inform learning about practice” Schon (1983) identified two types of reflection which are; reflection in action, which takes place during the event where the practitioner may not be aware that it is happening and reflection on action, which......

...Reflection Paper AB 104 Personal Financial Management Dana Gitzlaff October 7, 2014 Reflection Paper The first key element we learned about was setting specific goals about what we want to do with our life and our money. In both our professional lives as well as our personal lives, finances have a profound effect on achieving those goals. Setting a goal to travel in retirement years affects how we will plan our finances. Setting a goal for early retirement depends on how well we handle our finances in the present time. Home ownership, providing for the grandchildren’s college education, moving or changing careers will all be affected by how our finances are managed. Goals should then be prioritized in the order you want to achieve them with the exception of long-term goals like retirement which should be constantly maintained while working on the others. Setting goals will do little good unless a plan is formulated. Controlling your budget should be the first part of your plan and the second part should be how to get out of debt. After these two things are accomplished, decide what you want to do with your money to reach your goals. Creating a budget allows you to create a spending plan so you can direct your money in a way that will help you to reach your goals. Once you have formulated your plans and have paid off debt, you are ready to begin investing and should speak to a financial planner to help you make your investment decisions. Preparing in advance......

...Ethics Reflection Paper Ethics Reflection Paper Ethics and social responsibility are important concepts that play a significant role into implementing a strategic plan. Ethics and social responsibility will benefit an organization into having a successful strategy plan and reduce and any potential negative impact of a operation. The subjects to address in this paper are the following, the role of ethics and social responsibility in developing a strategic plan considering stakeholder needs and how my ethical perceptive has evolved throughout the program. Ethics is an important concept as well as the fundamental principles of right individuals conduct. “Business ethics seek to proscribe behavior that businesses, firm managers, and workers should not engage in. Ethics is a source of guidance beyond enforceable law. It is clear and uncontroversial that firms and their workers should not engage in unlawful acts, such as selling harmful or defective products, and ignorance of the law cannot be used as a justification for unlawful actions. Business and management ethics goes beyond the law lo provide guidelines as to what is acceptable behavior in business transactions” (Haq, 2011, p.1). The way a company could successfully establish a mission, vision, or objective for its organization is through adhering ethics. The company must develop values that interest stakeholders. The values should include direction and expectation of the organization. The values......

...This piece of reflection will focus on my future development within making high levels of decisions, in relation to becoming a qualified Community Specialist Practioner (CSP) after completing a SWOT analysis. Throughout this reflection I will be using the Gibbs (1998) model of reflection, the Gibbs cycle helps the reflective process. It is also structured, helps individuals to look at the situation and evaluate for future learning. Moon (2013). According to Adair (2013) decision-making and problem solving strategies will help individuals confidently make the right decisions within the role as a leader. In addition I will also discuss how I reflected, after completing my SWOT analysis to devise an action plan and goals, to reach my final target. A SWOT analysis is to identify an individual’s; Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. A SWOT is a structured plan that helps identify strategies to help with positive and negative factors (internally and externally). It also helps to improve personal and professional development, identify areas to develop on and set goals. Pearce (2007). As part of my personal and professional development I needed to complete a SWOT analysis so that I could identify areas to develop, which would contribute to me becoming an effective CSP. I therefore felt to become an effective decision-maker within a team I needed to reflect on my weakness that could be holding me back slightly. During my first couple of weeks as a CSP within my......

...BNEW 113 Reflection # 1 "Is speaking in tongues evidence for having the Holy Spirit?" There are three occasions in the book of Acts where speaking in tongues happens when you receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 2: 4; 10: 44-46; 19:6). However, these three occasions are the only times in the Bible, where speaking in tongues is an evidence of receiving the Holy Spirit. We are told that every believer in Christ has the Holy Spirit (Romans 8: 9), but not all believers spoke in tongues (1 Corinthians 12: 29-31). So, why was speaking in tongues, the evidence of the Holy Spirit in those three passages in the book of Acts? Acts Chapter 2 records the apostles were baptized in the Holy Spirit and empowered by Him to proclaim the Gospel. God enabled the Gentiles to speak in tongues to demonstrate that they had received the same Holy Spirit who received the apostles. Acts 10: 44-46 describes this, "While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on Gentiles. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.” I think in those passages the apostles were enabled to speak in other languages, in order to share the truth with people in their own language. It was very hard for Jews to accept Gentiles, they considered them as unclean and unrighteous. Therefore, by speaking in tongue they would realized that even......

...After reading Chapters 1–6 in the McCullough text, answer the reflection questions below. Type directly in the boxes; they will expand as you type. Use complete sentences. Chapter 1 | Q: In your own words, define “godly character” and explain why it is important for a Christian educator to display such.A: Godly character is being like Christ in everyway. This does not mean that you have to be perfect, but strive to think, act and talk like Him. If we do this in all areas of our life we will have Godly character. It is important for a Christian educator to display Godly character, because this will teach the students they are teaching to do the same. If we show students that we love and are willing to help everyone no matter their background, then they will to learn to do the same. This also helps them trust us as teachers and lets them know we have their best interest at heart. We have to gain their trust and having Godly character helps. | Chapter 2 | Q: Respond to question 3 on pg. 32.A: I believe and hope my foundation for my personal life and work life are the same. Sometimes it is hard for me to talk about at work, because I work at a state hospital and there is a lot of diversity. Even though it is hard to talk about I try to let my actions show people what and how I believe. So, if sometimes people do not believe the same way I do, at least they can see something is different and know that it is Christ. | Q: Respond to question 4 on pg. 32.A: I do not think their......

...This essay will be a reflective account of an incident from practice based on Gibbs’ Reflective cycle; I will critically analyse the nature of the incident based on the best available evidence. This reflection will help to identify new skills and knowledge learnt as a result of the incident and the implications for my future nursing practice. Although I am aware many reflective models exist, I have chosen to use Gibbs’s reflective framework as it is a cycle and encourages me to think about what I would do differently next time. This clearly shows Gibbs’ awareness that a nurse will have a similar experience again. This reflection method supports Schon’s (1991 cited Issitt 2003) opinion that reflecting on practice after the event is the most effective way to maintain an improvement as a development can be made. As part of the UKCC Project 2000 pre registration nurses are expected to be able to reflect on practice experiences and reflection can help create holistic and flexible practitioners (Andrews et al 1998). For the purpose of the assignment I will use a pseudonym to protect the client’s identity in accordance with the law as stated by the Department of Health (2003), there is also an obligation stated by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC 2008) to protect client confidentiality. This pseudonym is Sue. The first stage of Gibbs’ model is a description of what happened; whilst on a surgical ward I was caring for a lady post operatively who had a bilateral total......
