However, other than that small percentage of people others on campus tend to be mindful of all religious beliefs. Due to that people often have questions concerning my faith and information about my country and what living there was like. The major questions are things like “do you pray five times a day?”, or “What are the long robes you guys wear called?”.

Also Rosetta sent a lander called Philae to explore the comet and take picture among other things (Lauren, 2014). Interestingly enough when the media reported the comet landing I thing is trumped Kim kardashian attempt at breaking the internet with her nude photos which the media was cover at about the same time as the comet landing.

1.“If, for example, students were not ultimately rewarded for spending their early adulthoods pursuing undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees, or if the hardest-working and most productive workers were paid the same as the median worker, then citizens would have little incentive to develop expertise, to exert effort, or to excel in their work.”
From 2011 and onward, my family had fallen into bankruptcy for paying out of pocket for my older brother’s medical expenses and surgery costs due to his diagnosis of heart failure. In 2013, when I took the standardized ACT exam two times, I scored both times an 18 which was below my university’s 2014 entering freshmen class’s composite score average of 24.5 (copy of score report is attached). Furthermore, upon taking the LSAT two times with over four months of self-studying for the September exam, I scored first a 141, and a 140 on my last attempt. When taking both examinations, I have not been able to afford tutoring pertaining to the exams or a preparation course. Although I have worked numerous jobs during the past few years in college,

Some symptoms of the early stage of being infected with HIV are deeply pained headaches, very high fevers a sweating a lot. The sweating and fever could lead to Flu or mononucleosis, which could make the whole infection even worse. Bad thing about this infection the first month or two the symptoms go away after that.

When it comes to education, it is about helping people discover, refine, and develop their gifts, talents, passions and abilities; and then helping them discover how to use those gifts, talents, abilities in ways that benefit others and oneself (Bull, 2015). However, with education, there are many places where this does not happen and learners may fall between the cracks. Schools are heavily measured on testing, student outcomes and student numbers that it has become the main focus to excel the school district—but what about the students? I recall a time where I was sitting in a classroom and the teacher was going over a math lesson. Many students struggled and were having a difficult time following along with the task. The teacher started
Growing up, like any normal child, I had to follow certain rules set by my parents. Both of my parents are very resourceful and economical, and as a result, food is never wasted in our household. From a young age, my sister and I have been taught to take onto our plates only what we can finish; if we fail to do so, we are scolded without fail with one variation or another of the “think about the poor children in Africa who have nowhere near as much food as you do” lecture. My mom always tries to use as many parts of our food as she can, not very much unlike how the Native Americans used every single part of their meat in order to honor the revered spirits of the animals they hunted; when we have watermelon, instead of throwing away the tasteless

For this assignment, I interviewed and chatted with my former high school biology teacher, Mr. Young. It was very fun for me to get a chance to go back into my old high school and talk to one of my favorite teachers, so I would say that I greatly enjoyed completing this assignment. I learned a number of different things while completing this interview, and from this information, I was able to build a better picture of what it’s like to actually be a teacher and understand some of the less rewarding aspects.
After reviewing the sources that I have gathered in my previous weeks’ assignments, I have noticed an underlying factor between them all. Some of the sources take this factor a completely different direction than what I was originally looking for, but they all have similar sections or quotes that attribute to my own personal questions and possible research topic.
This has been a challenging course overall. However, I feel like I’ve grasped the majority, if not all, the topics we have covered. While I may not be a master on the subject matter, yet, I feel that I am at least meeting the requirements expected for the course. I’ll see if this is reflected when I take the review exam later in the week.
