Why We Hurt the Ones We Love the Most

...January 2012 Why We Hurt the Ones We Love Most Many people have realized we hurt the ones we love the most, and in the story “The Scarlet Ibis”, by James Hurst, it really make you realize why we do such a thing. There are two brothers in the story trying to make it together, and the older brother pushes it to the edge. The older brother, the narrator, is loving, full of pride, cruel, and hopeful all at the same time, towards his little brother Doodle. With all these emotions going on at the same time, the results turn out to be something you would never imagine. In the story Doodle, William Armstrong, was born as a very special young man. He was so special; nobody thought he was going to live when being born. He didn’t get a name till’ he was three months old and had a casket built for him as a sign. With all this being wrong with him, his older brother gave him the nickname Doodle because he felt it wasn’t a name he had to live up to, or be expected of big things, rather than William Armstrong. Though it seems mean everyone agreed, but that’s okay because he was still a loving older brother towards Doodle. He took Doodle everywhere with him as he grew up. He even took him to his favorite place, The Old Woman Swamp. They would go all the time and have lots of fun like normal brothers would. They made crowns, necklaces, and more together out of honeysuckle. So, with Doodle being a little different then normal little brothers he did he did have that one loving spot......

...health approach to protect a child. Public health approaches call attention to examining, prevention, cost effectiveness, population strategies and protective approaches concentrate on the legal and professional response to cases of maltreatment. Both approaches have been connected with improvement in outcomes for children, yet maltreatment remains a major global problem. The article describes how children’s rights provide a different perspective on child maltreatment and contribute to both public health and protective responses. The article is about the social and legal contexts in which society responds to child maltreatment. Child maltreatment is the general term used to describe all forms of child abuse and neglect. There is no one commonly accepted definition of child abuse and neglect. Child maltreatment is not a recent phenomenon and it is not unique to certain nations and cultures. Child maltreatment includes all types of abuse and neglect of a child under the age of 18 by a parent or an individual in charge of the child. Examples of abuse are physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse and neglect. How child maltreatment is defined is central to how child maltreatment is recognized, managed, and prevented. This article was written based on a recent study released that showed the promotion and prevention of child maltreatment. The convention on the rights of the child was adopted by the UN in 1989 and was rapidly ratified by most countries in the world......

“What Are the Possible Reasons for Filipinos to Resort to Euthanasia When We Know That They Would Do Anything to Preserve the Life of Their Loved Ones?”

...for every activity under heaven. 2A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to harvest. 3A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1-3) Throughout the ages and for the next generation to come, there is only one thing constant in our lives and that binds mankind together, and that is facing the great inevitable, which is death. Death is something we all must face -- no escaping techniques, no meditation rituals, and no amount of money can avoid it. Death is not a right, it is the end of all rights and a fate that none of us can escape. It is the great equalizer. The finality of death and not knowing the inevitable would ultimately give a person a scare for their life. But what happens when death can no longer be a natural occurrence? What happens when we are given the choice to manipulate and control the death of a person? What happens when a person interferes with the laws of nature and decides for himself/herself what time a person may die, but saying he/she had the best interest of the person? What happens to these situations then? Is it justifiable to end the life of a person? i. Background The ultimate right we have as human beings is the right-to-life, an inalienable right that can never be taken away, not even by the person who possesses it. It is similar to the fact that our right to liberty does not give us the freedom to sell ourselves into slavery. Our freedom of speech does not......

We Don't Sell Just One Glove

...Topic: We don’t sell just one glove When we are going in a department store to buy gloves, you don’t ask for one glove because you lost or just you want to buy one!!! The sales person will look at you and first think she is kidding and second call the police she is crazy… The store offers to you a package that contains the pair. The problem now we are selling one glove, question: what is happening with the rest the package? (It’s not all the time, but it’s happening). Example: I went to TMHS and I had a chance to meet my treatment team, and that day I was very angry. I looked the therapist and asked for her to be brief, and that I didn’t want therapy, care coordinator, no nurse, and just wanted to see my doctor. The therapist looked me, no question and told it was fine. You could come back in one week to sign your IPOS. Red Flag!!!! ONE GLOVE WAS SOLD!!! WHERE’S OTHER PART OF THE TREATMENT PLAN???? Same scenario with realistic and happy ending for everybody, I hope. I went to TMHS and I had a chance to meet my treatment team, and that day I was very angry. I looked the therapist and asked for her to be brief, and that I didn’t want therapy, care coordinator, no nurse, and just wanted to see my doctor. The therapist was surprised, but decides at the moment just listen me and waited for more details. After she ask for my goals I would like to work on and maybe help my with my anger issues. The CPSS asked me why I was so angry, and she shared that for her recovery......

...Since the dawn of the nation, the armed forces have included black Americans. As early as 1652, leaders of the Massachusetts Bay Colony mandated that all Indians and people of African descent residing in "settled" areas enlist in a local militia. Prince Duplex, Sr. was one of nearly 300 men of African descent to enlist in the Connecticut militia during the Revolutionary War, and Oscar Marion, a slave on the South Carolina plantation of war hero General Francis Marion, fought side by side with his master, also serving as "personal assistant, bodyguard, sous-chef, bugler, courier, confidant, and oarsman." When the Medal of Honor—the nation's highest award for military valor—was established in 1861, African Americans were not excluded. In time, however, conferral of the award began to mirror the status of black Americans in general, embodying a tumultuous history that has not always been so honorable. The origins of the award lie with the Civil War. On 21 December 1861—exactly a year and a day after the secession of South Carolina—President Abraham Lincoln signed Senate Bill 82 into law. The measure, created to honor "non-commissioned officers and privates as shall most distinguish themselves by their gallantry in action, and other soldier-like qualities," was at first an honor exclusively for Navy sailors, but by the following year was expanded to include the Army. Though originally intended to cover only the length of the Civil War, the Medal of Honor was made a permanent......

Friedman Family Assessment The Friedman Family Assessment Model draws heavy on the structure-function framework and on developmental as system theory.

We Can, but Should We?

... We Can But Should We? Dara Shalom Chamberlain College of Nursing NR361-65561: Information Systems in Healthcare March 2013 We Can But Should We? “As healthcare embraces technology to improve patient outcomes, streamline operations, and lower costs, the technologies with the most impact are the ones that make things simpler” (Why and How). Various companies are trying to simplify the process of obtaining essential patient information with the use of quick response, or QR codes. These codes are placed on stickers, bracelets, and cards for wallets. When paramedics scan the QR code, they gain access to the patient’s health profile, which contains basic personal information, allergies, medications, and emergency contacts. With instant access to this vital information, medical errors are reduced, and the time that they would otherwise spend obtaining this information is cut. Some people believe that this is a wonderful advancement, and it “could benefit so many folks” (Davis), while others are concerned and skeptical about this new technology. Benefits One advantage of utilizing QR codes in emergency response situations is the shortened time spent obtaining vital patient health information. By cutting down time, paramedics are able to make treatment decisions more quickly. “Every second counts during medical emergencies, and quick access to medical information can be the difference between life and death” (Rich). Immediate access to the individuals medical......

We Are What We Choose

..."We are What We Choose"
Remarks by Jeff Bezos, as delivered to the Class of 2010
Baccalaureate
May 30, 2010 As a kid, I spent my summers with my grandparents on their ranch in Texas. I helped fix windmills, vaccinate cattle, and do other chores. We also watched soap operas every afternoon, especially "Days of our Lives." My grandparents belonged to a Caravan Club, a group of Airstream trailer owners who travel together around the U.S. and Canada. And every few summers, we'd join the caravan. We'd hitch up the Airstream trailer to my grandfather's car, and off we'd go, in a line with 300 other Airstream adventurers. I loved and worshipped my grandparents and I really looked forward to these trips. On one particular trip, I was about 10 years old. I was rolling around in the big bench seat in the back of the car. My grandfather was driving. And my grandmother had the passenger seat. She smoked throughout these trips, and I hated the smell. At that age, I'd take any excuse to make estimates and do minor arithmetic. I'd calculate our gas mileage -- figure out useless statistics on things like grocery spending. I'd been hearing an ad campaign about smoking. I can't remember the details, but basically the ad said, every puff of a cigarette takes some number of minutes off of your life: I think it might have been two minutes per puff. At any rate, I decided to do the math for my grandmother. I estimated the number of cigarettes per days, estimated the number of puffs per cigarette...

Can We Know When to Trust Our Emotions in the Pursuit of Knowledge? Consider History and One Other Area of Knowledge.

...Can we know when to trust our emotions in the pursuit of knowledge? Consider history and one other area of knowledge. Candidate Name: Nastassja Isabelle Session Number: 002636-063 School Name: Binus International School Simprug Session: May 2013 Word Count: 1598 “The sign of an intelligent people is their ability to control their emotions by the application of reason”, American author, Marya Mannes once said. Emotion is defined as a strong feeling deriving from one’s circumstances, mood, or relationships with others. In the pursuit of knowledge, there are times when emotion could be involved in order to gain a better understanding of a certain aspect. However, relying on emotions too much could also cloud our judgment, for it is a very subjective way of knowing. This essay will discuss how reliable our emotion is in the pursuit of knowledge in two areas of knowledge; history and the arts. To start with, emotion plays a big part in judging historical figures and events that were immortalized through history books. The question is, would it be accurate enough to judge them solely based on our emotions? Take Richard III for example. He is known as an evil deformed hunchback in history. Shakespeare had popularized Richard III’s ‘deformed hunchback’ image by his famous historical tragedy titled “Richard III” where he was portrayed as a king who ruthlessly lies, murders, and manipulates, so many people had viewed Richard III like that. Shakespeare’s “Richard III” was......

The One Is One

...An essay has been defined in a variety of ways. One definition is a "prose composition with a focused subject of discussion" or a "long, systematic discourse".[1] It is difficult to define the genre into which essays fall. Aldous Huxley, a leading essayist, gives guidance on the subject.[2] He notes that "the essay is a literary device for saying almost everything about almost anything", and adds that "by tradition, almost by definition, the essay is a short piece". Furthermore, Huxley argues that "essays belong to a literary species whose extreme variability can be studied most effectively within a three-poled frame of reference". These three poles (or worlds in which the essay may exist) are: The personal and the autobiographical: The essayists that feel most comfortable in this pole "write fragments of reflective autobiography and look at the world through the keyhole of anecdote and description". The objective, the factual, and the concrete-particular: The essayists that write from this pole "do not speak directly of themselves, but turn their attention outward to some literary or scientific or political theme. Their art consists on setting forth, passing judgement upon, and drawing general conclusions from the relevant data". The abstract-universal: In this pole "we find those essayists who do their work in the world of high abstractions", who are never personal and who seldom mention the particular facts of experience. Huxley adds that "the most......

We Are What We Read

... When we were born, we were ignorant, innocent, by going to school, we read, we write, we communicate, and gradually we grow up to what we are today. Just imagine: what human history will be like if they don't read. First of all, reading makes us more intelligent. As the old saying goes, if a man empties his purse into his head, no one can take it from him. For example, we are able to think clearly, sensibly and logically by reading detective stories such as Sherlock Holmes. Secondly, reading can broaden our vision. The main way we learn the things happened long time ago is according to the book. Men will try their best to write the things in their stage in their way. When we read books, we have the opportunity to learn everything. The content in the books contains the knowledge all over the world and every aspect. We can read the knowledge about biography, science, technology, culture, economic and so on from the book. It is hard not to broaden vision from reading. Then, reading can cultivate our taste. I am sure that reading some elegant sentence or the beautiful things described in the book will make us feel relax and comfortable. And we all know that the more knowledge a person has, the better-behaved he will be. I think this is the charming of reading. If there are more person like reading, the world will become more civilized. Reading helps men not only learn more knowledge but also improve the self-cultivation. Reading helps men not only broaden their horizon but also......

...Heller 1 Greydi Heller Professor Kumar English 101 034 ITIS Monday, October 12, 2015 
 “ We are One ” Kwame Anthony Appiah was born in London, raised in Ghana and educated at Cambridge University. He became Laurence S. Rockefeller University, Professor of Philosophy and faculty member of the universal central of human values at Princeton, he is currently living in New York City. Appiah’s personal and professional experiences make him highly qualified to talk about Cosmopolitanism in “Making Conversations”, where he gives an interesting twist to the original concept of cosmopolitanism. According to Appiah, we do not have to choose sides between nationalists and hardcore cosmopolitanism. He believes that the position worth defending may be called partial cosmopolitanism.  In other words we do not need to go to the right or left, we can stay in between cosmopolitanism and nationalism. Agreeing ,that as citizen of the world we need to develop habits of coexistence,it’s a responsibility that we have to one another even if we are not closely related or similar to each. Appia, makes it very clear saying that cosmopolitanism is not the name of the solution it’s the challenge for every human being to get along with each other .We can better get along with others by getting to know our differences, and our similarities by using a simple tool Heller 2 which is the conversation. I agree with Appiah’s argument, I like the idea of......

The It Policy - Why Do We Need One and What Should It Contain ?

...The IT Policy - Why do we need one and what should it contain ? Many, many years ago, in fact December 25th 1981, I got my first computer, a joint Christmas present with my Brother. My first computer was a Sinclair ZX81 with 1k ram, we later purchased a 16k expansion pack and a sound-card and spent many long hours programming it, reading the 'full' manual (RTFM;) and if things went wrong or the program we had just spent all day working on crashed we had no IT help line to ring, we just had to sort it out ourselves. My Brother and I have been 'into computers' ever since, but why mention this ? Back then we thought the future held many innovations and a shiney new world where computers are as common as the TV, with functionality to match, you go to a shop, buy a Computer, take it home and plug it in and it just works, like a TV. Sounds great doesn't it. Unfortunately the reality is far from this, there are many inherent problems with computers and many nasty things that want to make your computer life hell. Managing a home computer is hard enough, trying to navigate through a myriad of options all programs have now from writing a letter where the program spell-checks it as you type, offers suggestions and allows to to mail-merge with your database to print the letter or email mail it to far flung corners of the globe, or, which browser / email client / picture editing program / letter writing program etc. to use. On top of all this you have to make sure you......
