In the article “The Five Sexes: Why Male and Female Are Not Enough” by Anne Fausto-Sterling, what call my attention the most is the fact that we as humans feel the need to categorize everything. Western society has the idea of the two sexes, female and male; but there are many variations of female and male. Just as the author say depending on “who calls the shots” there can be many categories of sex. Why do we need to categorize it, even when we analyze these categories not everyone fits in them perfectly, which means we will have to create a new category every time or misplace people. I can understand the need to categorize so we can understand and help identify everyone; but by doing so are we as humans just creating more discrimination by separating people like that; making special categories because they don’t “fit” in the ones that are already place.
This reflective essay will lay emphasis on one of the learning needs I have developed during my two week taster placement in hospital. Reflection helps an individual build upon their skills and makes room for self-criticism as he or she can contemplate upon actions and make relevant changes (Taylor, 2000). I will be applying the “What”, “So what” and “Now what” model of reflection by Driscoll (2000) in this piece of work because it is a more coherent and comprehensible approach to follow when writing a reflective account and is also an easier guide to writing reflections. The learning need I chose to reflect on from my learning plan is having a better understanding of diabetes and the 6 basic medications used in treating the condition since it is a common illness on the ward I am have been allocated on for my first placement. The timescale set for achieving this objective was by the end of my two week placement that is from 27th January to 9th February and I achieved it with the help of a host of factors. In this assignment, all the names of the patients and wards have been omitted and indicated with letters and numbers for confidentiality reasons as stated in the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) code of conduct (2008). The paper will primarily touch on the type 2 diabetes and furthermore on the achievement on my learning need.
On May 3, 2017, I did my job shadow at the Labor and Delivery department at UCSD Jacobs medical center. For my job shadow, I chose to shadow a perinatal nurse in which I shadowed from 8:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. When I came one of a perinatal nurse gave me a tour of their own floor. I got to know where change, medication room and labor and delivery rooms. What I observed was that perinatal nurse has to check on their patients are going into labor. I got to observe the nurses assigned patients. The nurse would check on the patient's vital signs and the babies. I observed how the nurse would change the IV and drain some of the IV. They also gave me the opportunity to observe a c-section. During the c-section, there was a lot of cutting and getting the
I volunteered at the Charlotte Schmidlapp Children 's Center because I am attending Mount St. Joseph to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. The Children’s Center (Charlotte Schmidlapp Children’s Center) is located on the Mount’s campus and it provides affordable child care for the Mount’s community. I chose to volunteer at the Children’s Center because I love working with children and I love giving back to my communities in any way that I can. While volunteering at the Children’s Center I felt warmth and loving from the children and the staff, I knew each day that I went that I was doing what I love and that the children were enjoying the time that I spent with them. I learned that when you are working with the children that you have to look at them as if they are your own children. You have to make a bond and make sure that you say what you mean and mean what you say and set boundaries that cannot be crossed.
Peter Pan. A movie about nostalgia, childish fun, following your dreams and.. abducting children. I’m serious. You see, Peter Pan’s shadow is the one that does his bidding, that separates from him and convinces Wendy and her brothers to follow him to Neverland. It never talks, it only imitates what its owner does, but with slight variations that get it in trouble. Now, Peter Pan is a lighthearted story with positive messages meant to resonate on children, but the shadow that the tale holds is one that we all do. The difference between our shadow and Peter Pan’s, however, is that his always listened to him, and meanwhile, we always listen to ours. This shadow, constantly following us around is a choice that we make- a choice to be manipulated

A thumping heart, clammy palms and a preoccupied mind altogether inhabit my body whenever I am faced with a writing task. I become restless and overwhelmed with anxiety till the day I receive my paper’s evaluation. However, during this fall semester of ENC1101 I have learned numerous techniques and strategies to help cope with my stress to effectively complete my writing assignments; I challenged my self-doubt and reached goals I once thought were unattainable. Thus, now that I have a greater knowledge of the English writing process, I am able to reflect back to my writing portfolio and evaluate my strengths and weaknesses.
While reading the class textbook in week seven, I had the interest to learn more about Brownfields briefly discussed. So, I utilized the week’s forum to learn in details that brownfields are not just unproductive, contaminated and abandon sites that have negative health consequences on the environments. Rather, brownfields as an author stated a land of opportunity. For instances, former use automobile lumber storage, railroads station, salvage yards and industrial landfill. However, brownfields turn out to have success stories. An article I read by Felten Jennifer stated that to redevelop and remove contamination of such sites, Environmental Protection Agency developed a program in 1995. Also, Brownfield Legislation bill was passed to support
2. Before this week’s lesson, I had never given any consideration to whether or not nonhuman animals had any moral standing. Prior to this class, if asked whether I thought they did or not, I most likely would have said that I do not feel they do; however, after serious consideration, I would now have to say that I do think that nonhuman animals have moral standing. At least some of them do.
I feel that some animals are more capable of acting morally than others.
The incident happened at my workplace, which affected and changed my identity as a professional. I was doing my diploma in children’s services when I started my job as certificate 3 in Doveton college early learning centre four years ago. I completed my diploma successfully. After some time, I decided to start studying Bachelors in early childhood education. I started feeling a change in the behaviour of one of the teachers in the centre. We have three rooms in the early learning centre. I was a part of the kinder room and she was a teacher in the babies’ room. She started with picking on me. I took it as a learning opportunity and thought I might not be doing the right thing as I was new in the industry. So I kept her behaviour to me. As the
