Drug Addiction

Teaching Experience Paper

Grand Canyon University

October 4th , 2015

It is a mystery how people become addicted to drugs. Usually it is assumed that drug abusers do not have morals or willpower and claim to have the ability to stop using drugs by simply changing their lifestyle. Drug addiction is a complicated disease, to quit just by changing, or having good intentions is quite unlikely. When drugs enter the body they change the brain in ways that foster compulsive drug abuse, quitting is challenging, especially for people who say they can do it easily. The Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) offers these statistics. More than 20 million Americans over the age of 12 said they drove a car after drinking alcohol at least once in 2009. The NSDUH estimated that about 30.2 million people over 12 drove while intoxicated at least once in 2009. More than 4.6 million emergency room visits were related in some way to drugs in the United States (DAWN, 2015). These are alarming numbers and eye opening; which leaves people wondering how easy it is to acquire drugs in the U.S. The feeling of intense pleasure makes it extremely difficult to pull away from drugs, this will then lead to long term addiction. Mentioned later in the paper, long term drug addiction can lead to future brain damage. Due to the teaching summary provided, understanding the connection between drug addiction and brain damage became very evident. Information on how to deal with drug addiction and catching the symptoms early were also provided. Drug addiction is more than a habit. Drug addiction has done enough damage in the world to be taken seriously. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIH) states that, “The impact of addiction can be far reaching. Cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, and lung disease can all be affected…...

...the PDI index (69 out of 100). 2) Uncertainty Avoidance: “A society's tolerance for uncertainty and ambiguity”. It is a extent of formal rules and patterns of life for security. In more emotional cultures, there is a tendency to create rules so that people have a good predictive validity of the future results their actions will yield so that they can avoid ambiguity. In cultures where uncertainty avoidance is low, people feel more comfortable with unstructured situations and try to have as few rules as possible. In Catholic countries such as Brazil, this value tends to be high. Hofstede identified a strong correlation between power distance and uncertainty avoidance. This uncertainty creates anxiety that is handled differently by different cultures through the use of technology, laws, and religion in their broadest sense. 3) Masculinity-Femininity (a.k.a. achievement verses nurturing): “The distribution of emotional roles between the genders”. Masculinity indicates the extent to which dominant values in a society tend to be assertive. Masculine cultures are more reward assertiveness, materialism, competitiveness v.s harmonious workplace relations, social partnership and ambition. They tend to be more competitive, and gender roles are more emphasised. Feminine cultures value the quality of life and equal treatment, the achievement of personal development, and sharing. 4) Individualism-Collectivism: “The degree to which individuals are......

...simple recipe to all your problems. Though mainly centered on Scrum, Mike draws on various other techniques to produce a handbook that is thorough and complete. This is not a hasty mash-up supported by just an act of faith or a single experience.

...I have been in Beijing for one and a half years, and my life only consists of three parts--studying ,working and making new friends.What I get the most is from making friends.. Today, I would like to share you two /three stories about what my friends brings to me. The first story is about how my friends gave me new perspectives Last Saturday afternoon, I paid a visit to Beijing Normal University under the guidance of a friend who studies in that school. My friend showed me around in the school and introduced to me their cafeteria, office building , library and so on. One thing must mention is that she can clearly tell me some details such as all the words entitled in the slogans are written by Qi Gong, the famous Chinese painter and calligrapher. I have a better knowledge of this university. But this is not the point. I realized that it is important to have good communication skills. She also told me that she ever thought how to describe something clearly and specifically to others.In her spare time,she usually tried to describe something she was interested in).In contrast to me, I have never thought about this problem. So this is just the difference between us. Most of the time we think that our school is nothing special and showing your friend around the school is a boring thing. However, if we can make some efforts for it, I believe we will enjoy this visit. She is fond of attending various of lectures. For example,when she get exposed to the writer’s body......

...incorporeal thing.  In De Anima book I, Aristotle examined almost all pre-Aristotelian theories. In book II, he began to reveal his ideas about ‘substance’. For Aristotle substance is a composite which is ‘matter and form’, he states, Matter is identical with potentiality, form with actuality. And there are two meanings of actuality: knowledge illustrates the one, exercise of knowledge the other. [2]   The body is a ‘matter’ which itself is not a power of subject, but it stands for the quality of subject i.e. a matter. It must follow, then, that soul is substance in the sense that it is the form of a natural body having in it capacity of life. Such substance is actuality. The soul therefore, is the actuality of the body above described. [3] According to Aristotle, soul is substance and it is an actuality of the body. We should notice here that he did not distinguish between soul and body in the sense that they exist differently. But he attempts to understand which one is the first actuality, i.e. the soul or the body, as we see the soul is the first actuality and the body is second. What he has in mind by this actuality is that the essence of the matter is in the form, which is the actuality, which is substance. We can see this in his example, For,  if the eye were an animal, eyesight would be its soul, this being the substance as notion or form of the eye.[4] The matter of being alive is very important for Aristotle, the essence*[5] of eye is sight, if it lost its......

Here There Be Tygers

...Literary essay “Here There Be Tygers” ”The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn” – Marcus Tullius Cicero The school is supposed to be a place where children can let their imagination flow. But in the school of the 1960´s, rules, authorities, discipline and the promise of physical punishment to those who did not obey, subjugated children’s imagination. Stephen King’s short story from 1968 “Here There Be Tygers” is about a strict teacher and a young boy whose imagination comes to live in the shape of a fearsome tiger, and challenges the order and the strict discipline of a US primary school. The story is narrated from the main character Charles´ perspective. The narrator is a third person, non-omniscient narrator, which means that we see the world trough Charles´ eyes, from a child’s perspective. This signifies that we see things that happen, the way he experiences it. To Charles, the tiger, which he encounters in the men’s bathroom, is as real as Miss Bird. Charles feels that his teacher, Miss Bird, is hostile towards him, the narrator says: ”She meant to pounce. Charles thought that miss bird was about to find out what pouncing was really about”(p.159, l.23-25). This displays Charles´ apprehension towards miss Bird because, from his perspective, it feels like his teacher really is attacking him. From a grown ups perspective, miss Birds behaviour would not seem as aggressive as it does to Charles. Charles has a very......

...argument was the “privileges and immunities” clause (“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States”) only forbids the states from withholding the privileges and to Americans, not state citizens. These cases either have the foundation for an argument based on the fifth or fourteenth amendments. The section of the fifth amend that is inquired is the section which states, “…nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.” The section of the Fourteenth Amendment that bears argument is section one which states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” The general agreement amongst the Justices (not all on the same “courts”) was that the court lacked or had no jurisdiction in the matter and therefore dismissed the suit or decided somewhat, wrong. Chief Justice John Marshall wrote in the 1833 decision, "[constitution} created …by the people of the United States" to apply only to......

...(usually softens) the rhetorical effect (“die” vs. “pass away” vs. “in a better place”). Different choices of language signal different implications and underlying philosophies. Euphemisms tend to distance the audience from the subject, using more vague and imprecise language (“collateral damage” vs. “unintended killings,” “got the better end of the deal,” vs. “swindled the other guy”). Paraphrase: An alternative phrasing of an author’s original language. Don’t paraphrase simply to pretend an author’s arguments or content are your ideas, or to avoid accusations of plagiarism. Instead, paraphrase in order to reveal something that wasn’t obvious in the author’s original words. Effective paraphrases make the implicit explicit (“What she’s saying here is...”) Always give credit to your sources, even when you paraphrase. Summary: Similar to paraphrase (in that you choose your own words to describe an author’s argument), except in a summary, you compress large portions of text into a much smaller space. You’ll need to choose specific things to focus on in a summary. You aren’t trying to restate every claim and every piece of evidence. Instead, choose smaller parts of the text that are relevant to your work and explain how you want your reader to understand them. Quotation: A rhetor’s exact language reproduced with precise accuracy (no words changed!), attributed to them, and presented in quotation marks.

...another thing that many children today can relate to. It talks about ways to switch you game controller for a “life controller”. I chose three picture books lending themselves to interpretation through music or movement. I found this to be the most difficult part of this assignment. I picked “The Snowman” by Raymond Briggs. In this book a boy builds a snowman. He invites the snowman to come inside and they explore the house. The snowman then takes the boy on a journey through the countryside and into the city. A movement activity I would use would be to actually build a snowman. If snow wasn’t available we would imagine that we are building a snowman and act out the movements. I would also bring in different size balls that children could try stacking and problem solve ways to keep them together. In another activity I would play music and ask the children to describe where they think the snowman would be flying over and have them dance to the rhythm if it’s fast or slow. The music would be jungle music, ocean waves, sounds of nature, etc. The second book I chose is “The Lion and the Bird” by Marianne Dubac. This is a wonderful heartfelt story of a Lion who finds a Bird in his garden. The bird is left behind by his flock so Lion cares for him through the winter. The Bird ends up Leaving with her flock in the spring. The Lion misses her terribly as he goes back to his solitary life. When Autum returns so does Bird. Activities for this book that promote music would be to play......

...had to learn that the meaning of hard work was something that was not a privilege but something that was too be expected. However I grew up in a household where education was never very important. Maintaining a good credit score, finding a nice apartment, and getting a halfway descent tax refund what was my life was about. However when I think about what I want for the next five years, I think about the goal that has driven me for the past few years. I have always said that I wanted to make six figures by the time I was thirty, and I am nowhere near close. Some may find that goal as selfish, but my goal in life has always been to make as much money as possible to help as many people as possible. I have always been comfortable living in an apartment, but I have always said that I wanted to put my mother and my grandmother in a nice house. My grandmother has always wanted a nice kitchen and my mom does some unorthodox things to get money. My goal in life is be exactly the opposite of where I came from but ultimately never forget where I came from. It is astonishing to me how my professor does so much work in a community in which he did not grow up in. So my goal in life is not just make a six figures before I’m thirty but to ultimately go back in the community in where I come from. I don’t want to go back just to help, but to go back and show them that anything is possible. One of the main conflicts of interest for me is that I have always witnessed people come into......

...They are different not only in the physical appearance such as sex, age, height, weight, complexion and so on but also different in their psychological trait such as intelligence, attitude, motivation and perception. This belief that each person is different from all others is typically called the 'Law of Individual Differences'. Individual differences mean that the management has to treat them differently to get the best out of them. • A Whole Person: Though the organisation may feel that they are employing only the individual's skill or intelligence, in fact, they employ the 'whole person'. This means that individual does not have only the skill and intelligence but he has a personal life, needs and desires as well. In other words, his personal life cannot be separated from his work life since people function as total human beings. When management practices organisational behaviour, it is not only trying to develop a better employee but it also wants to develop a 'better person' in terms of all round growth and development. The benefit will extend beyond the firm into the larger society in which each employee lives. • Motivated behaviour: It is the urge of the individual to satisfy a particular need that motivates him to do an act. The motivation could be positive or negative. Motivation is essential for the proper functioning of organisations. The organisation can show to its employees how certain actions will increase their need fulfilment. •......
