Hello Everyone,

I hope your Labor weekend was a pleasant one.

My family background has a lot culture history, which means there is a lot to talk about, but I will concentrate in sharing more of the work history from my father side. In that note I will like to share minimum information regarding my family cultural background. My grand grand parents are from Korea, they immigrated to Europe and make Spain their new home. Grandparents and father are from Madrid Spain, grandparents and mother and from Ecuador.

On the other hand, my father is the youngest of a family of 12 kids. He became an industrial engineer and end up working in underground mining. His job was very dangerous, long days of work and the responsibility was huge. But the paid was very high. The think he liked the most was the option to travel to other places in and outside the country. The job most of the time was tragic and sad for the families of the miners; people will end up dying for many reasons. This job has been one of the longest job he did.

My father salary was good when he started, then with time things change as the economy change, with the years the impact was mostly for newer people in the industry. Because of his position he had all the benefits working for the company. For example: if he wanted to invest stocks in the company, medical and insurance benefits. He was treated good most of the years he got to work for the company, the only think he mention about disliking in the company was the fact that he couldn’t have too much of a social life with people he was in charge at work. The work wasn’t like to work in a office and that you are able to have a more social life to know one another, when your working in a mining, the most important thing of the day is to get the work done and make sure about the security of the workers.

When my father started his job in mining he got his…...

...Name Course Professor Date Module 10 Forum World War 1 (WW1) had great impact on so many things. One major impact was the avenue it created for future wars and revolutions. This led to the cold war and World War 2. The WW1 led to the emancipation of women. Women now gained more right as compared to before the war. The World War 1 can also be stated to have led to the great depression. This is because the war cost billion of dollars and many countries that were involved either directly or indirectly were in debt and owed a lot of money. The other impact of the trench war was the fact that male dominance stopped being common and the patriarch ideals were also done away with as they become infamous. Male dominance became less famous as they had no careers after the war. Most of them could not get careers after the war as they had joined the army at a young age.

...Rosemary, thanks for your points. I find one very important note in your reading and that is, that dealing with people is directly related to their various backgrounds. It is very important that we understand and know that not all people have the same backgrounds or even the same access to resources. Being poor is a great struggle within itself, but when you compound that with being , homeless and hungry, that’s even more complicated. I know from first hand of being a young single mother, trying to make ends meet, ends meeting meant sacrificing “something.” The “something” may have been sacrificing my own meal in order for my child to eat. I remember using charity resources that would offer assistance with housing and food. I am ever so thankful to God for his grace. God placed people in position at the time when I needed them most. The workers at the facilities that I used in Kansas were absolutely phenomenal. They helped me in so many ways, without being judgmental. I was young, single, and broke, far away from family, hungry, practically homeless, a mother and definitely misguided. They helped me by putting me on a path back to work and helped to build my self esteem through counseling. They provided more than enough. That is why I am able to stand firm today on one of my favorite verses, “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”(Philippians 4:19, King James Version) You are so correct when you quote the Bible,......

Forum Dyscalculia

...Dyscalculia is a processing issue that stems from the parietal and temporal lobes of the brain. Students who are dyscalculic have difficulty processing and recognizing number forms and symbols and making sense between number relations. For example, a student with dyscalculia might not see a difference between 27 and 72 or that 3+6 is different than 3X6. Dyscalculia appears to affect boys and girls equally and approximately five percent of the population is dyscalculic, which is similar to the dyslexic population. On average, any given classroom will have one to three students with dyscalculia. Because dyscalculia is a processing disorder, students with dyscalculia take a longer time to complete math assignments. In the early grades, this can be very difficult because arithmetic is considered the most basic and easiest math process. Other areas of math, such as geometry or probability theory, may be easier for dyscalculic students. One of the ironies of this, however, is that a dyscalculic student might become so anxious and so frustrated with math that they will not be able to get to these areas of mathematical study. (This reminds me of Einstein and how he was identified as being learning disabled, particularly in math. I wonder if he was dyscalculic?) For someone with dyscalculia, remembering number shapes, identifying symbolic representations of numbers, and interpreting mathematic symbols is very challenging. As a result, a child who can’t perform simple addition......

...Forum #3 A major misconception about creativity is that it attributes to only generating ideas and excludes the implementation of those ideas. In undergraduate I took a Computer Aided Design (CAD) course and the final group project was to create a modeled Boeing 747. A requirement of the project was to add your own modification to the 747. Each of my teammates picked a structural part of the airplane and creatively made their own modification. If creativity is the only element being considered in the generation of the idea, then the implementation of creating the modification would be excluded. Without the implementation, our individual alteration would only have been a thought and we would have received no credit on our project. This misconception of creativity neglects the creative approach at solving problems. The creativity modification that I implemented to our 747 was adding flames to the turbines. Amabile’s definition of creativity insinuates that a significantly small percentage of the human species are creative; my lecture notes state this numver is a mere 2.5%, which I feel is absurd. This misconception would contradicts all the innovative creations that have advanced human life throughout the centuries. This measure of creativity is unreliable because as humans we are always adapting to solve problems and maintain life. If only 2.5% of humans were creative, then we as a whole would be faced with a crisis of dealing how to advance economically and maintain the...

...Chairman : Family life is too intimate to be preserved by the spirit of justice. It can be sustained by a spirit of love which goes beyond justice. The challenges that occur nowadays create difficulties for families to foster a bond. Talker 1 : Now what is a family? Family is a bond, a long lasting relationship that holds a bond with each other. It all forms when man and women become one and from there a family is born. Talker 2: Family bonding does not happen overnight. It forms with every second, every minute that you spend with your loved ones. Talker 3: A close family bond is like a safe harbour, where we feel secure and where we trust that we have someone always there to whom we could turn to when we need them the most. Chairman : So what is the main challenge to build a strong family bonding in this globalised world? Talker 1: Families face new challenges in later life. In family bonding, divorce permanently weakens the relationship between children and parents. The National Survey of Families and Households found that about one in five divorced fathers had not seen their children in the past year, and less than half the fathers saw their children more than a few times a year. Thus, children’s relationships with both their parents change after a divorce: they become more distant from both, more so even than children living with married but unhappy parents which results in to be less affectionate with their children, less communicative, and to discipline them......

...sentencing for drug dealers and users. I never knew how sentencing for people convicted of drug trafficking worked, until watching this film. Growing up in a low-income housing development, I was how drugs destroyed people, their families, and the community. I watched some of my peers and close friends fall victim to the use of crack cocaine and heroin. I watched the dealers buy the fancy clothes, cars, and jewelry, only to go to jail, get out of jail, and do the same thing over and over again. I’ve always wondered where did the drugs come from and how did they get into the communities. One day I received news that a local dealer from my community received life in prison for drug trafficking. I thought he had to have killed someone or something more sinister than selling drugs to get life in prison. After watching the film, I understood how this could happen. How is it legal to say that one gram of crack cocaine is equivalent to 100 grams of cocaine? This baffles me. Even though President Obama signed into law that it is now 1 to 18, it is still unfair and unconstitutional. I believe it’s mainly about suppressing a certain ethical group. I believe if the government invested more in counseling and preventative measures than handing out life sentences, it could help ‘our’ nation. Wishful thinking. The documentary Bastards of the Party was informational and I enjoyed watching it. I hadn’t heard of the film until it was spoken about in class. I think Cle “Bone” Sloan......

...meeting went wrong. When you are dealing with class forums, you have to make sure to re read your post before you actually post it and be sensitive to everyone in every way possible. One of the things you can change, when talking in a forum page for classroom, is by not using the phrase, “good old boys”. That phrase is immediately looked upon by females in a bad way, instead you can refer to them as co-workers. If you say co-workers, you will not be offending anyone in any way, because it is not picking a certain gender. Another thing i would of changed is that you mentioned you would “recommend that any man who wants to advance in the business world should seriously consider brushing up on his etiquette”. Just by the word “man”, is automatically putting a gender role in the sentence and it can be looked upon in a wrong way. Lastly, another way you put a gender role on this situation is by saying you “used some of her tips at the company picnic later that month that all the managers and their wives attended”. You made it seem as there are no females attending this meeting with their husbands, therefore secluding the gender role once again. In the future when communicating on the class forums, you should definitely re read everything carefully before posting it. Double checking your work can never cause any harm to you, besides taking up a little more time. Im not saying these are all corrections that are going to give you one hundred percent satisfaction to every reader, but......

To facilitate this examination, a comparison of the values and purposes of the World Social Forum is contrasted with those of the World Economic Forum. The analysis concludes that, without individual and governmental input, corporate action cannot be relied upon to improve the state of the world. . World Forums Without a doubt, the values of the “haves and have not’s” has been in increasing, not only on a national scale, but also on a global scale. From ‘state house’ to ‘hut house’, it is obvious that today’s emphasis on ‘money at any costs’ has resulted in a perversion of the Golden Rule, resulting in “those who have the gold, make the rule”. Not only has this attitude resulted in an abandonment of values that underpin traditional American values of democracy, respect and value of differing cultures, it exacerbates a legacy of American and European colonialism on a global scale. This attitude is manifested in American and European government and corporate policies and actions that erode the principles of corporate social responsibility. World Social...
