My Ritual I have to say I write my best when I am outdoors. The fact of being crammed in a computer room or library doesn’t set my mind at ease. When indoors there are multiple detractions such as loud key board noises, side conversations, cell phones going off etc. Being outdoors for me brings life into my writing regardless of the topic. Whether is the warm sun shining down or a cool breeze from the trees it relaxes me as a writing thus making my writing come to me easier. I’ve written several papers at the beach, local park and even my own backyard. On these outdoors papers I have received B’s, whereas indoor papers that have been turned in have been C’s. What I like to do when writing outside is to have a nice cold drink with me. I set myself up on a chair and depending on the days weather I sit in the sun or the shade. I am not one who sits and has their stuff scattered out in front, to me I feel that the vision of that crowds the mind and makes it difficult to concentrate. Writing with a pen and paper has also never suited me. The best way I do my writing is through a keyboard on a laptop or desktop. I guess you can say it’s due to the generation I grew up in and how much technology evolved since the early 1990’s. For me, there are many distractions for me when I am about to engage in my writing ritual. I know for a fact that my main distraction is defiantly my cell phone. My cell can lead to numerous distractions. Distraction number one is always my work. I work for an agency call Sage Supportive Living Services. I am a Community Mentor to adults across Ventura County and help with everyday activities. My job takes up a lot of my time and my participants really depend on not only myself but fellow Community Coaches and Mentors alike. The phone almost never fails to go off when I am writing papers. For instance about an hour ago I left to go…...

...touching stories, social media will be a powerful source for fundraising. Planned Parenthood is a good example for what I mentioned. According to Planned Parenthood website, the organization received more than 3 million USD from thousands of people across the country in only three days after Komen made it public that they would stop funding.

...a comeback. Teen boys are wearing skinny jeans and tight shirts. Today’s girls are wearing tight pants, leggings, big ear rings, and wedge hills. The standard that women should be beautiful and sexy are present throughout these images. Girls are starting young, dressing up like grown women. Fashion shapes who people are and how people live. Not purposely, but fashion indirectly creates cliques. Pop culture has been a movement that has been consistently evolving since its beginning. The culture remains the same; but trends, fashions, and styles are on a continuous loop. When it comes to my position on pop culture, my stance varies. Mainly, because I do not favor the hardcore lyric content in rap and other music but I am a strong proponent free speech and creativity. I also believe that it is the parent’s responsibility to appropriately monitor what’s going on in their children’s lives. Parents need to explain to their children the difference between reality and entertainment. http://familyjournal1.blogspot.com/2010/02/latchkey-kids-in-single-parent-homes-on.html http://blog.nielsen.com/nielsenwire/media_entertainment/nielsen-estimates-number-of-u-s-television-homes-to-be-114-7-million/ http://www.npr.org/2011/06/01/136859090/the-power-of-music-to-affect-the-brain Study mode.com They Say I Say Steven Johnson, Tom Bissell, Medical News Today National Institute on Media and the family ...

Free Will

...Prof. Kellenberger Phil 310 Free Will When grumpy old Scrooge of the famous movie A Christmas Carol went home on Christmas eve, he had no idea what awaited him. He experienced a night of anguish and terror after three ghosts visit him. Scrooge was a grumpy mean-spirited man after the death of his sister Fan. Just to prepare him for his “life” in death, his dead partner and friend Marley, who facilitates the entire nightmare, shows him the lost lonely spirits who were mean-spirited in their earthly lives. The first ghost who visited him that night was “the ghost of Christmas past”. This ghost serves to remind him how others had been kind to him during past Christmases in his youth and how people in his past embodied the Christmas spirit. This ghost served to instill guilt and remorse. Next, “the ghost of Christmas present” appears to Scrooge and shows him how everyone is enjoying Christmas and spreading the Christmas spirit around town. It also shows how his servant Bob, despite his meager earnings enjoys Christmas with his family. It also shows Scrooge his nephew Fred enjoying Christmas with his family. The two families only show downcast moods when discussing Scrooge. However, Fred maintains hope that his uncle Scrooge can change. After that, the most dreary “ghost of Christmas yet to come” appears to Scrooge. He shows Scrooge how Bob’s son death saddens everyone and leaves them feeling a sense of loss. He then shows him a rich dead man who nobody misses and......

Free Will

...“Human actions are causally determined and therefore not free” Discuss. Determinism argues that all human actions are determined as they apply to natural laws. However, to say actions are determined means that human action isn’t free and we do not have free will. Free will is the term given to the idea of human ability to do what we like whenever we like without restraint. I disagree with the claim that human action is not free and I will put forth arguments in this essay to discuss this conclusion. Firstly, libertarians would argue that we freely chose our actions as we have an overall feeling of freedom. This relates to our common experiences of choosing and deciding and when we have to make choices we are open to all other alternatives before making a decision. Surely, we only have the ability to freely choose something if we have free will to do so and if our actions were causally determined then we wouldn’t have other alternatives to decide from. Therefore this strong feeling of free will and freedom to do as we choose to would prove that human actions isn’t causally determined. However, determinists would claim that this ‘feeling’ of freedom is not sufficient evidence to say that we are free since it is possible for us to feel free even when we are not. For example, if I had a brain tumour that I didn’t know of which caused me to drink repeatedly then I am unaware that the tumour is making me do so yet I feel as if I am freely choosing to drink. It may seem as......

Free Will

...TuThurs Prof. Smith Free Will Free will can be perceived as a quality one is born with no matter what your background is. But then again what is free will? And do we all have it? This strikes a huge argument with many outlooks on either the possibility of having free will or the possibility of not having free will. Ranging from Determinists such as Albert Einstein and Libertarians such as John Locke to everyday people such as me who truly believe that we are indeed free. We can conclude that there is a possibility for free thanks to these following premises and principles. According to the Principle of Alternate Possibilities one can choose to do one or the other. Therefore if given two possibilities it is in the power of the individual to either choose to go one way or the other. If I was given the possibility of eating a burrito or a salad I would make a choice depending on the way I felt that day. It could also be based on past habits, information about how healthy both choices are, belief, or my own eating habits. This option can be seen as being determined or free will, but in this instance we will pretend I chose whatever I chose freely. The argument above is both valid and sound. It is valid because both of my premises are true in any circumstance therefore there is no way of proving it false. The soundness is proven when we line up both premises and it gives us a conclusion. One can also conclude that there is no possibility for free will. According......

Free Will

...The definition of free will is; the power of making free choices that are unconstrained by external circumstances or by an agency such as fate or divine will. We use free will to form thoughts by allowing ourselves to completely let go of all external and internal influences to create a free will thought. Truth is defined as; “is what is so about something, the reality of the matter, or as distinguished from what people wish were so, believe to be so or assert to be so.”Ruggiero, 2009 in other words a statement proven to be or accepted as true. We use the truth to form ideas or thoughts but must then test that thought or theory for it to be a truth then we can add to that truth or validate that truth. The definition of knowledge is the facts, feelings or experiences known by a person or group of people. We use knowledge to form thoughts by using understanding gained through experiences, observations or from report from other people to form our thoughts. The word opinion is defined as; a belief or conclusion held with confidence but not substantiated by positive knowledge or proof. We use our opinions to form thoughts by one, expressing our likes and dislikes and by our personal judgments.                    There are three major hindrances to the critical thinking process and they are; mine is better habit, conformity and generalizations (stereotyping). One method to overcome some of these hindrances is to first examine your first thoughts or first impressions of an issue......

Free Will

...Brett Whiting Professor Bethem PHL_160_05 25 March 2013 Free Will Stance: I believe in the idea of Free Will. Reason: The reason I believe in Free Will is because I believe that everyone has the choice in which decisions they make in life. You should believe in free will because it is what gives you the ability to make your own decisions, gives you control of your life, and gives you a sense of freedom of speech. Thesis: Free will is the idea that everyone has the choice to make their own decisions; some of the theories free will our shown through Harry Frankfurt’s organization theory, Fischer’s factors of control and Hume’s study on desires. 1. Free will based on organization A. Frankfurt on first desires B. Frankfurt says in first desires when he is undergoing a first desire that he has the ability to either eat the candy bar or refrain from eating this. This shows free will because he has the choice to refrain or go along with his desires. C. I agree with Frankfurt’s ideas and beliefs because if we desire to do or eat something then we have the choice in which we can restrain ourselves from doing it due to negative outcomes or you can accept the desire and go forward with the decision. 2. Free will based on Control A. John Martin Fischer free will through guidance and regulative control. B. Guidance Control, people show guidance control by looking over their actions and coming up with the most appropriate outcome. I feel...

...teens that are being abused or neglected at home and many other ways. The biggest majority of trafficking is women and children but men and boys are also being targeted. Human Trafficking does not only target the poor or rich people. On March 20, 2012 President Obama vowed to fight Human Trafficking. “Yet millions around the world and here in the United States—toil under the boot of modern-day slavery,” said Obama (human trafficking.org). When the Super Bowl was held in Arlington, Texas the Texas attorney general described it as “one of the biggest human trafficking events in the U.S.” (Booth). This crime is not an issue that only happens in other countries this is happening here in the United States of America, Land of the Free. An estimated 1,100 children are forced into sex slavery every year from Ohio (End Human Trafficking). In 2005 a Pennsylvania sex ring was broke up and out of the 177 women and girls found there 77 were from Toledo, Ohio one girl was 10 years old. Toledo, Ohio is right in our backyards. The Toledo Blade reported in 2006 Toledo is reported to be fourth in the nation for arrests, investigations, and rescue of children involved in human trafficking (Provance). Education Education needs to be the focus to stop Human Trafficking. We as a nation need to make sure the law enforcement officials and medical personal are educated about the signs a victim has when they are being abused by Human Traffickers. There will be no end......

...As regards the human person, the genes that predispose an individual’s temperament interact with their personal experiences to mold their individuality. A person’s individuality encapsulates both their internal and external reactions, as every human possesses a solitary, distinctive mind that constitutes their self-identity. A person’s actions cannot be solely attributed to the interaction between genes and experience, however, because within every person there also lies a will— a will that is free to make decisions and perform the actions it so desires. As was established previously, “inherited temperament deals the cards of life, and the human person—body and soul with innate, adventitious, and fictitious ideas— plays the hand they are dealt as new objects, experiences, and relationships are thrown their way.” In other words: nature, the innate qualities a person is born with due to their genetic make-up, interacts with nurture, the personal experiences a person comes into contact with. This was earlier explained using the empirical concept behind psychology’s diathesis-stress models, which examine how an individual’s level of vulnerability to abnormal behavior or mental illness (the diathesis) interacts with environmental factors (the stress) to influence behavior and the development of mental disorders. Similarly, a person’s genetic distinctions (the diathesis) interact with environmental factors and events (the stress) to influence their own thoughts, desires, and......

Free Will

...Critically consider arguments for free-will in psychology (30 marks) One argument for free-will comes from the psychological argument, which suggests that people have a subjective sense of free-will and all people are able to make their own free choices about their behaviour. Evidence for this comes from Dr. Johnson in the 18th Century who sustained the idea that ‘we know our will is free, and there’s an end on ‘t’. (A01) However, a counterargument towards the psychological argument is that simply feeling that you are free does not mean that this is true. Skinner claimed that free will was an illusion – we think we are free, but this is because we are not aware of how our behaviour is determined by reinforcement. Freud also thought that free will was an illusion, because he felt that the causes of our behaviour is unconscious and therefore still predictable. (A02 ) In contrast, Valentine (1982) claims that this subjective sense of free will is tenable (reasonable). It is something that can be studied and thus shown to be true, e.g., attitudes towards free will have been found to increase with age and are also more common in individualistic cultures such as the USA and UK where personal responsibility receives greater emphasis. (A02 ) Another argument for free will in psychology derives from the ethical argument. This states that if an individual’s behaviour is determined by forces beyond their control, then the individual cannot be held responsible for......

...Maddie Kaipare Ms. Gladfelter Comp II Comp II 10/07/2014 Freewill In the plays ‘A Raisin in the Sun’ and ‘Antigone’ social injustice plays a recurring role in the lives of Antigone and the Younger Family. For Antigone, freedom of free will is ripped from her while the Younger family, even though they have free will, do not seem to make use of it. Freedom and control are the two elements evident in these two plays. Antigone tries relentlessly to procure hers by standing up for what she believes is right, while the Younger family holds on to the past letting it dictate their freedom and control both the present and future. Some might say that Antigone was stubborn and foolish for not letting go of her beliefs but she was portraying her free will and freedom to do what she thought was right. A perfect example of this was when Creon asked her if she was the one who committed the ‘crime/burial, “Do you deny you did this, yes or no?” “Antigone replies, I did it. I don’t deny a thing” (Antigone- 1322). She had the courage, guts, and tenacity to exercise her own discretion and did not fear adversity. The Youngers, on the other hand, are quite the opposite. Although they had the right of freewill and control, they never seemed to take any chances to live for the future but rather let the past undermine what was present and ahead. Mama, seems to be living by rules that her dead husband had set forth and cannot seem to break away from them. For example when Ruth says “Now what...

...with real humans, whether they are entrepreneurs or customers. Some of you may think that starting a company is a dream come true. The reality is that entrepreneurship demands that you live with ambiguity and fear. That is not for everyone. Leadership and this Course Each student must participate in a group project during the semester. The goal of these projects will be to help real entrepreneurs to determine if they have a business idea that would justify their quitting their “day job.” Groups of students will work with venture capital firms, the Austin Technology Incubator and local Chambers of Commerce to identify entrepreneurs who need assistance with Opportunity Identification and Analysis of their business idea. You are also free to create your own project and have that be the focus of your work in this class. Each team will then help these entrepreneurs determine whether to proceed with their vision or start anew. These projects will help you develop your leadership skills in a number of ways. First, you will learn how to “manage” groups of peers where each student cannot be the group leader. Second, you will learn to manage the client relationship with the entrepreneur and their partners to maximize the value that your team provides them. Finally, by observing and reflecting on the dynamics of your team and your client entrepreneur, you will develop a deeper understanding of what entrepreneurial leadership requires.
