This subject has been a very tiring and depressing part of my student life so far. Every day seemed like a year. Sighs and cries were often heard from students, and controlling the depression was impossible. I have experienced similar emotions back in modular one, except that this time it was a level higher. With this kind of experiences (hardship and sleepless nights), I often encounter a reflection of my purpose in life, and most importantly my purpose of striving hard to achieve the best that I could. Nothing made sense when I was focusing on the hardship and the pain of not being able to feel free. Friends of other courses were having the time of their lives while I was always stuck at home studying. I had even skipped family gatherings just to be able to catch up with what is due and was called a nerd because of this. Nonetheless, I had strong faith that everything will fall into place, everything is worth it in the end. When the professor told us to compartmentalize our feelings, it made me realize how great impact my perspective has brought over my performance. Optimistic I was when things were going well, but I had become pessimistic in times like this and it was not right. It hurts to think about the ‘what ifs’ and the scenario not favorable to our end, but trust is an important factor in trying to overcome struggles. Trust that God will give us the best, trust that this is a training that could make me better, trust that at the end of the road there’s a rainbow, and trust that I will be able to overcome this eventually. Indeed modular subjects are a test of trust, and priorities, a test of endurance and perseverance; it’s nothing but a test that could shape me as a person who I was meant to…...

...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...

...Week Two Learning Team Reflection There are several things that we discussed in week 1 and week 2 giving us a better understanding of basic components of business research. This week had shown us what to look for the issues in America, showing how these issues have an impact on business in America. As the issues arise companies look for a way to solve those issues and tools such as business research was one of those tools these companies used to better make choices in order to determine what is best for the company. By doing so the companies also are weighing the pro, cons and ethics of each to ensure that the foundation of the company is better. The business ethics is a main art in order for a company to run and create a revenue, without valid behave and having unethical behavior it creates a tear in the company, creating a refit and causing much to be disregarded in business research. Thus stating that the stages of business research must be attained to at all times to hold employees and the company accountable for unethical business choices as well as giving the company a chance to better increase its revenue and company outlook. These steps are clarifying the Research Question, Proposing the Research, Designing the Research Project, Data Collection and Interpretation, and Reporting the Results. These stages help me better understand how the business research better works. These past two weeks have shown me many things in research so that I am better able to conduct...

Sometimes, we shouldn’t reply to every email. Second, key values (“borrowing” competitor’s algebra, sexual harassment) can never be over-emphasized and legal lines should never be crossed.

Motivating Everybody has motivations. Motivations can easily manifest themselves in good times, while it is hard for people to hold motivations when happy ending is nowhere in sight. I believe the nobleness of management is to let people be a motivated man and filled with hope (though faint) in those hard, dark times. To effectively motivate others, we learnt in class the basic theories on motivation: Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Theory, Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory, Murray’s Manifest Needs and McGregor’s Theory X and Theory Y. We did an interesting survey in class and “B-A-S” sequences showed we often apply X theory in viewing others while Y theory......

...Jesus Claims to be God/ Character Development Tamar Brown Theology 104 I. Introduction In the following paper I will discuss the various thoughts and ideas that have been presented thus far in Theology 104. During the course of this class a variety of topics were discussed which in turn gave me a clearer understanding of what it means to be a Christian, about Jesus, as well as a better understanding of the bible itself. In the following I will address two topics for which I feel are imperative to any Christian and to the life thereof. In the first portion I be touch on the subject of Jesus’s claims to be God. I understand this to be the topic of many discussions and disputes among those in religious circles and abroad. In the second portion I will discuss character development. II. Did Jesus claim to be God? a) Explanation of the topic/doctrine We will find that Jesus did in fact make claims to not only being the son of God but, to be God in the form of human flesh. I believe that the most compelling evidence or support to this claim is not so much in what Jesus said about his deity or divinity but, rather in what He did as he walked among men. Jesus has made claims to His divinity, but the proof of His divinity was more in His actions and not in His words. I believe that this speaks clearly concerning our own nature as well as God’s desire to relate to mankind, as sinful human beings. b) Scriptural basis There are many people that question if Jesus every......

...Reflections Introduction: In this paper I will discuss the ministry calling and doubt, more specifically self-doubt. These topics although they are common to those called to ministry are actually very conflicting. While the call to ministry is given by our Lord, doubt is given by our adversary. All Christians are called to ministry and we all at some point doubt our abilities. This will be discussed in more detail below. The great news is God is our provider and our ability is his ability. When we doubt our spiritual ability we doubt God’s ability. Part One – Ministry Calling: Definition: If we are all called to ministry then it is important for us to understand what a call to ministry means. It can often be difficult to define a call to ministry especially since there are so many different aspects of ministry. Thus, for the purpose of this paper I will define a call to ministry as a manifestation of the divine will that a one should preach the gospel. Biblical Foundation: First, I want to clarify what I meant in the introduction when I said all Christians are called to ministry. The Bible tells us we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10 NIV). We are told to go into all the Earth and create disciples (Matthew 28:19-20), and to be great in the kingdom of God, we must serve all (Mark 9:35). However, not all Christians are called to be in a full time ministry, but we all......

...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.

...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......

...ED 250 REFLECTIONS 1 The Need for Teacher Education . The week two lectures had highlighted an important issue which has come under a lot of criticisms for the past years. This was the need for teacher education. Although many critics still feel that teacher education is a waste of time or that field experience is more important. Most do not realize that the need of teacher’s professional development is essential for the improvement of education all over the world and thus the expectancy for quality teacher education is becoming higher every day. First off, there are countless criticisms to the need for teacher education. However the two that I will focus on are firstly, the critic that teachers are “born and not made.” I feel that in order to be become a good teacher , you must learn the skills, knowledge as well get the experience to achieve the goal of being or becoming a good teacher. I do not agree with the statement that teachers are born ; for they are made. Teacher education is thus based on the theory that teachers are made and not born in contrary to the assumption that they are born. Since teaching is considered an art and a science, the teacher has to acquire not only the knowledge but also the skills or the ‘tricks of the trade’. In addition to this, another criticism is that knowing my subject content is sufficient. This I disagree with, because it definitely will not prepare you for the classroom and the school environment. I believe that educating......

 DSGN6029 Research and Innovation Assessment – 3 Part 1 Project Reflection (Part A) I have always been immensely inspired by superior design and excellent workmanship. For me, a handbag is one such design article that is the best example of form and functionality. A well-designed handbag can transform a look completely. It can either enhance or ruin personal style. All these years I have used various kinds of bags - totes, clutches, satchels, backpacks, sling bags but all the bags thus far have lacked one important feature. It has never been a complete package. Sometimes, the form of a handbag is well designed, but it lacks core functionality. I have never been able to settle for an all-purpose handbag. The most important drawback for me in a handbag however is its weight. I am a hoarder and I carry almost everything from my keys, cellphone, sunglasses, makeup to old receipts and bills. My handbag is my world. However, I have had to experience and undergo a lot of pain because of heavy handbags. I intend to come up with a design solution that can ease the problem of weight of handbags for women. Materials like Qmonos (genetically modified microbes to make an artificial spider silk thread), Softy (developed by Gherardini is light soft and silky), Neoprene and kangaroo leather are few options that I have been able to find through my research which are extremely light in weight. I also believe that hardware......

...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.

...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 www.monster.com, the company will receive thousands of resumes. It is impossible for the employers to meet with everyone......
