What kind of a mother is Soraya to her children?
A mother who would sacrifice her own happiness and freedom just to e with her children and give her children the care and they deserve. She is an epitome of a dakilang ina na handang gawin ang lahat para sa mga anak niya kahit pa buhay niya ang kapalit. Si Soraya ay uong tapang na hinarap at tiniis ang paghihirap na dulot ng gusto at ginawa ng asawa niyang si ali para lamang manatiling uo ang pamilya nila alang-alang saa anak niya, kahit na nasasaktan dahil binubugbog siya ni ali ay tiniis parin niya para hindi magutom ang kanyang mga anak. Si Soraya ay isang uliran na ina, habang pinapanuod ko siya ya nararamdaman ko kung gaano kalaki, kadakila at kadalisay ang pagmamahal niya sa mga anak niya, ang pagmamahal ding iyon ang nagpapatibay sa kanya upang kaharapin at pagtiyagaan ang kanyang asawa. Ipinakita ni Soraya kung gaano a talga tunay na magmahal ang isang ina na susuongin at titiisin ang lahat para lamang sa mga anak niya kahit pa nga sarili niyang uhay ang kapalit. Her legacy of eing a mother to her children is an evidence or proof of how unconditional a mother’s love is towards her children.
How does the community in the said film view women?
The true to life story film depicted women as less important in the society. They regard women as a liability. The film showed how insignificant women are in that place. They look women as individuals who were born to serve men. It is heartbreaking to see that women treated like a rag or a toy, after using they can just throw it away. Whenever a woman commit mistake they are always guilty unlike men who are regarded as otherwise.
What is the function of culture in the said film?
Culture played a big role in the film. It was used to mistreat women, degrade them, make their value lesser than men, incapacitate women to act and speak freely for themselves. Their culture…...

...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...

Soraya M. Paper

...Stoning of Soraya M., Soraya was stoned because she was accused of committing adultery. Although they did not have proof of this actually occurring, she was stoned anyway. This presents a problem for me personally. Although I am not from a place that condones stoning women for committing adultery, I do not think that this is a morally right thing to do. Even if a woman actually did commit adultery, in my opinion she still should not be stoned to death in front of the entire town. I also think that the male children of the town should not be able to participate in this kind of violence especially if it is their mother that is about to be stoned to death. I think that this practice is dehumanizing to the Iranian women in the village and anywhere else that stoning occurs. If they want to punish the women for committing adultery or allegedly committing adultery, maybe they could come up with another form of punishment that does not include the women having to be put to death. I thought that it was very sad to see Soraya have to go through the things that she endured before her death. No woman should to endure a husband being abusive towards them, and then to have to find out that he is cheating on her with a much younger woman. I do not blame her for not wanting to give him a divorce. If that was me, I probably would not give him one either if I was not going to have anything to be able to support my children. I just do not see why everyone was so quick to assume that......

...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......

The Stoning of Soraya M

...harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya, and the bloody circumstances of Soraya's death, by stoning, the previous day. The two sit down as Zahra recounts the story to Freidoune, who records the conversation with his tape recorder. The journalist must escape with his life to tell the story to the rest of the world. Ali is Soraya's abusive husband who tries to get the village's mullah to convince Soraya to grant him a divorce so that he can marry a 14-year-old girl.[5][6] Ali is able to convince the mullah by making threats to tell the rest of the village about his past as a convict. Ali's marriage to the teenager is conditional on Ali's ability to save the girl's father, a doctor who has been sentenced to death for an unspecified crime. The mullah proposes that Soraya becomes his temporary wife, referred to in Iran as 'Sigeh', in exchange for protection and monetary support for Soraya and her two daughters. Zahra barges in and encourages Soraya to refuse the offer. Soraya has two sons whom Ali wants, and who have both turned against her. Some days following the incident, a woman dies. The mullah, the village's mayor, and Ali ask Zahra to persuade Soraya to care for the widower. Zahra suggests that Soraya may do the job if she is paid. Soraya starts working for the widower, and Ali plans to use the unusual circumstance to spread lies that Soraya is being unfaithful to him so that she will be stoned and he can remarry.

The Stoning of Soraya M.

...Sara Kriselle A. Al Mohammed Cultural Anthropology May 23, 2016 Reflection Paper The Stoning of Soraya M. Up to this day, there are few countries who still perform executions like stoning or beheading; in Iran, Mauritania, in some parts of Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen where in these types of execution are still legal and performed on women by the cause of adultery. The movie "The Stoning of Soraya M.," based on a true story in Iran, where in women had their lack of rights in their country and how Soraya was abused and betrayed by her husband. Soraya was merely a victim. Her husband, Ali, wanted her executed so that he could get rid of her faster, while the widower lied in order to protect his son from being an orphan. Everything that has happened was a tragic and should be an eye-opener to all viewers and to inform them that women should have their rights as well. The Muslims looks at men as a more important people to the community, unlike women who are unheard or even abused. The way they dress; women are supposed to be covered from head to toe. There was a scene where in Mullah asked Soraya to get a divorce, but because she was worried about her children, Mullah suggested that she could be a temporary wife. And he said that it was ok and it is part of their religion, but according to Zahra it was a sin so she started cursing him. In their religion, age is not a big deal deal to them and an example......

...Team A - Weekly Reflection Weekly Reflection This week in our class discussions, one topic in particular that is important is discrimination and how it is used in hiring practices. Because of legislation that has been passed, companies are now required to follow hiring practices that are supposed to eliminate most discrimination. However, even though companies are required to not discriminate it still does take place. When posting a new job announcement, some companies will manipulate the wording in the announcement so that only a specific individual can qualify for that job. As long as there is no mention of specific discrimination in the announcement, this is one way around the discrimination laws for hiring. Another topic in the discrimination field of employment is how technology allows for more discrimination than ever before. Because of the internet and information being solicited employers can find out any information about a potential candidate without even speaking to him or her. Employers can find out about race, gender, religion, national origin, and color by clicking a button on a computer. This new technology takes away the one on one interaction between an employer and a potential employee. The reverse side to the equation is the internet has allowed potential employees to flood employers with resumes. If an employer posts a job on, the company will receive thousands of resumes. It is impossible for the employers to meet with everyone......
