Professional Reflection on Learning Experiences from the Past School Year

Personally I’ve learned a lot in my classes this year. To start off, I want to begin with
U. S. History. In U. S. History I learned about a horrible event that should be discussed because you never know if it can happen again. This event is called the Holocaust. The Holocaust was caused by Adolf Hitler and his SS guards that he assigned to work for him. Basically Adolf Hitler caused the deaths of about six million Jews. Most people gave credit to the Jews as the only ones who died but, in fact Hitler also killed Gypsies, Gays, POF, and many others. What Hitler did was transport Jews on a train to so called Concentration Camps which would in turn pay the Jews for their work. This did not happen, the Germans set up Concentration Camps and Death Camps. In some camps the Jews were sent directly to the death camps, were put in Gas Chambers and died instantly. Others were fortunate to be able to work in the Concentration Camps and survive the horror of the camp. Those found to survive after the Holocaust were malnourished or had some form of medical problem. In total eleven million people were killed during the Holocaust. Next, is Marine Biology which is about ocean animals. I learned about a topic that really surprised me. In Japan the fisherman slaughter, sell, or catch Dolphins everyday. But how do they do it? The Japanese have ships which have sound barriers. The sound barriers are used to make a very frustrating sound for the Dolphins. The Dolphins in turn are hurt by the noise of the sound barrier. The Dolphins start to stress because they dislike the noise. The ships draw the Dolphins off the coast, changing their direction close to shore. The Dolphins swim into a trap which is made up of nets that gets the Dolphins entangled. The Dolphins…...

5.05 Psychology [Flvs]

...To my journal, My name is Jonas and when I was 8 years old I was diagnosed with ADHD which the doctors said means Attention Hyper-Deficit disorder. My mom and dad keep telling me that I’m still normal just different, special even, from the other kids but I feel like a freak. In my class there’s no one else that has it and my teacher has to keep calling for my attention since I can’t focus on the lessons. Since I was pretty young my parents have had suspicions but it seems that they were right. I was in the 3rd grade when I found out. I may have this disorder but I can still do everything that a normal person could. 6 months into the school year, a girl named Alana came to our class. She had the same disorder that I did and we bonded. Together the two of us told our fellow class-mates that we have ADHD. Most didn’t know what it meant; some even asked if it meant we were crazy but after we explained to them that we just have trouble concentrating and keeping our focus on things they understood that we were just like them. Although some of my classmates thought I was crazy, different, a freak. I would get teased for being different and I wouldn’t be happy. I love music so I would always take my mom’s vinyl’s, they were always random, the first ones that I could get my hands on, and lock myself in the library/office. Music was my escape; it calmed me down and eradicated the thoughts that I wasn’t good enough. I could do everything like all the other kids could do; playing......

...Panels Jackeline Oyervides 1/7/14Ms. LeeDeclaration of Independence | The purpose of the Declaration of independence was to completely sever all ties from the British. It was a way of telling the British they no longer had control of them. The colonists were tired of being taxed unfairly and without representation. That’s why when fighting began in 1775 and after being fully convinced by Thomas Paine that independence was necessary, they declared their independence with the Declaration of Independence. A committee of 5 men, including Benjamin Franklin and John Adams were assigned to write the Declaration of Independence. However, they left the job to the youngest member Thomas Jefferson. The structure of the declaration of independence is that it is divided into three parts. The first explains why the Declaration of Independence is being written and defines the purpose of government. The second explains their 29 grievances against King George. Lastly, the third firmly declares their independence of Britain and King George and explains what that means for the United States in terms of the rest of the world. | The colonists viewed themselves as British Citizens who were under the rule of King George. For this reason they believed they had the right to the principle of popular sovereignty. Popular sovereignty is the belief that the power of the government comes from people. Meaning they elect people to make decisions for them. However, King George was taxing them without......

...2.04 1.Suppose a market basket of goods and services includes the goods below for two successive years. What is the consumer price index for 2013? Explain. ------- ------- ----------------- ----------------- ---------- ---------- Spending in base year = 10 +72 +12 Spending in base year = $94 Spending in current year = 12+84+18 Spending in current year = $114 The CPI for Year 2013 is $121.3. To find CPI you must divide the current year by the base year and multiply by 100. 114/94 is 1.2127 and multiplying that by 100 gives you the CPI of 121.3. 2. Conduct an Internet search on the "national debt to the penny." How much is the current national debt? Once you find out the size of the debt, determine if the federal government is helped or hurt by unanticipated inflation if the interest rate on the debt and its payments are fixed. Explain. The current national debt is $17,747,150,188,000. The government is helped by inflation with regard to the debt, since it will get increased tax revenues as a result of inflation, but still owe only the original amount of interest and principal on the bonds it sold to finance the debt. Also, inflation will cause people to demand higher interest on bonds and the government will have to pay more for borrowing money. 3. Maddie's nominal income was $33,000 in 2012. In 2013, because of her excellent work ethic, she received a raise that increased her nominal income to $35,000. Maddie knew a lot about inflation so she......

Section 2.05 Flvs

...Are advertisements aimed at teenagers effective? And, are they ethical? I had chosen clothing, and I do believe that ads directed towards teens are effective. When designing ad’s that are aimed at teens they play to what teens would want to hear, they use tactics as in showing what is in style and what will make that teen fit in. They suggest that their clothes will make the teen feel great and look great also, which results in the teen buying the product for that implied feeling. Advertisements will have select styles that will draw the teen into buying that select style because it was specifically made for them. For instance, on the Forever21 website (clothing store that sells teen clothes) they have sections such as “trending now”, “new arrivals”, and a summer collection “sunny days”. Also if you were to look at clothing store websites that sell clothes directed towards teens such as “Aeropostale, Hollister, Hot Topic, and/or Justice”, you would see that they also have specified sections for individuals such as the one’s shown on Forever 21’s website. When looking at the majority of the mainstream clothing stores you will see that they sell their clothes to a wide range of individuals, no matter what the race shall be. They do have individual sections that are designated to “men” and/or “women”, but they do not specify on race nor target a certain race. They intend on their clothing products to be bought by all not to be bought by those on an specific ethical stance.......

...To ATTORNEY GENERAL, Hello sir/madam. Rights are constitutional and are meant to be followed to ensure easy life amongst the citizens of a given sovereign state. However, rights are not absolute in the sense that they apply to certain limits, beyond which they violate other rights or create inappropriateness to the livelihoods of others. The constitution being a set of principles, constituted and aimed towards ensuring that the people of the given sovereignty obey the rule of law, it as well serves as a watchdog that safeguards the people’s rights. These rights are stipulated in the bill of rights which forms the basic segment of the constitution. And since the rights are not absolute, the constitution goes ahead in providing boundaries to which a certain law applies. For example the right to speech doesn’t mean shouting is also protected under the law. Having said that, I would wish to present my case concerning human rights violation ,on the people affected that I happen to represent hereby. These are citizens who have been denied the right to have legally gained arms in their residences. This has been done even in the midst of the democratic change ,that is happening in this era and even oblivious to the second amendment ,that protects individuals to possessing firearms and using them in lawful purposes, these residents have been denied their right .The purpose of these amendment was to defend the peoples lives and property, against criminal acts where these......

If I decide to study for the exam, I lose out on surfing at the beach in Florida during the summer time. Surfing would be the opportunity cost. b. If I decide to go to college after high school, I lose out on making money that would most likely be put forth into paying a ludicrously high tuition and cost of textbooks, also having a steady reliable income to not have to solely rely on one’s parents. Financial independence and the freedom from college debt would be the opportunity cost of a college education. c. If I decide to leave early to school, I miss out on eating the most important meal of the day that provides the necessary brain function for the coming school day. Performing at my best is the opportunity cost to leaving early for school. d. If I decide to complete my part of the group project, I miss out on watching the minion movie everyone is talking about. The experience of laughter and one-eyed banana-eating aliens is the opportunity cost of doing my part of the group project. e.

...1. Temperature: Put some hot water, warm water, and cold water in three bowls. Just use water from your faucet, and please be sure that the hot water is not too hot to touch! Place a finger in the hot water and a finger of the other hand in the cold water. After a few seconds, place them both in the warm water. Describe the sensations. Can you trust your senses for measuring temperature? Explain your answer. The finger that was in the hot water sensed the warm water as cold, and the finger that was in the cold water sensed the warm water as hot. It shows that we cannot always trust our senses because the environment around us affects how we perceive things. 2. You know that the normal temperature for a healthy person is about 98.6 Fahrenheit degrees. Express this temperature in degrees Celsius. F = 1.8C + 32. (F - 32)*5/9 = C (98.6 – 32)*5/9 = C 66.6*5/9 = C 37 = C 3. What is happening to the average kinetic energy of the molecules in a pot of water when it is heated on a stove? Explain your answer.
