Racial Segregation Do you think that racial segregation was ethical or unethical? Well during this time in American history, blacks had to follow the Jim Crow laws. They were not allowed to sit or eat with whites. Also when they finally decided to do something the bus boycott was to first thing that they turned to. I believe that racial segregation was unethical. The Jim Crow laws had a big part of how blacks were treated during this time. For example, a black male could not offer his hand or any other part of him to a white woman because he could be accused of rape (Pilgrim). Also a black male could not offer his hand (to shake hands) with a white male because it implied being socially equal (Pilgrim). Another Jim Crow law that blacks had to follow is that they couldn’t show public affection toward one another because it offended whites (Pilgrim). So blacks could not do all the same things that whites could do. Which isn’t showing that “all men are created equal?” Also blacks were not allowed to sit with or eat with whites. If a blacks and whites were allowed to eat at the same restaurant, whites were always served first (Pilgrim). Also a partition had to be placed between blacks and whites (Pilgrim). Also if a black person were to ride in a car driven by a white person, the black person had to sit in the back of the vehicle (Pilgrim). The

Kindermann 2 same thing goes for when blacks and whites ride the same bus. The blacks had to sit in the back, and they had to give up their seat to a white person. Blacks had to live like this for many years. Until they finally decided to do something about it. One thing that the blacks did to gain there freedom was the bus boycott. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white bus rider (“Rosa Parks”). In 1955, the Woman’s…...

...1. La voce melodiosa e melanconica di Chris invade l’aria mentre lentamente apro gli occhi a una nuova giornata da affrontare. Ho sempre desiderato una radio-sveglia, e ora che abito da sola e ce l’ho… beh, la musica al mattino un buongiorno necessario. Le note di The Scientist continuano a riecheggiare nella stanza, e io me le godo stando sdraiata a rimirare la mia immagine riflessa nello specchio sopra il mio letto… Un’altra delle tante fissazioni che avevo qualche anno fa, in piena fase adolescenziale e che è stata soddisfatta con il mio andarsene fuori di casa. Sembrano tempi lontani, quasi quanto la seconda me appesa al soffitto (diciamocelo: il mio appartamento ha delle stanze spaziose… ma che dico, enormi! grandi quasi un campo da basket e con un’altezza da far girare la testa), eppure quei tempi lontani sono databili come 4 anni fa. Mi rimiro ancora un attimo, cominciando la solita solfa del “i miei capelli, guarda che capelli! Oggi dovrò ingaggiare un’altra lotta per sistemarli”, “un fantasma, in confronto, sembrerebbe abbronzato ”, “guarda che occhiaie!” e poi, scostando un po’ il lenzuolo, mi metto a sedere, incrociando le gambe e stiracchiando le braccia, per poi appoggiarle sul letto, dietro di me, per mantenere l’equilibrio, per rilassarmi ancora un po’, per crogiolarmi nel tepore del post-dormita. Alzarsi dal letto non mi è mai risultato facile, soprattutto quando il tempo non è dei migliori: mi giro verso le ampie vetrate e constato che son leggermente......

...My name is Karina. I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Kazahstan, which is located in the Central Asia and was the part of the former Soviet Union. I finished High School there and attended four-year college for about two years. I was majoring in Customs Law, but I didn't finish it, because my mother won a lottery Green-card (permanent residence in USA) and we decided to move to America. I have only one older brother. His name is Ulan. Hi is 30 years old. We are very close to each other, although he is four years older than I am. Unfortunately, he is not here with us right know, because according to the US law, children over 21 years old are not eligible for the green- card, so he stayed in Kazahstan. My father died a year ago of stroke. He was just 54 years old. I still can not believe that he is gone. I still miss him and he will always be in my heart. I and my mother came to the United States four years ago. We live together in Brooklyn. She is very strong and good person. She is the one who influenced me to go to the college. English is not my first language, so I was afraid that I wouldn't do well at school. She kept saying to me that I'll do well and that she believes in me. And here I'm at the LaGuardia Community College today, majoring in Paralegal studies. This is my third semester here. Now I feel more confident about myself, because I passed all courses that I have been taking and received good grades and try to do my best to keep doing it. I'm a......

...years to create who I am today. Within these years, I have been given the freedom to explore the world in order to satisfy my curiosity toward all the strange and wonderful things in the world around me. I grew up in a healthy family. I had an elder sister and a younger brother and this made my childhood days more colorful. My parents both had stable careers and this provided us with more opportunities to learn what we desired to. I remember when I was a young boy; my parents bought us a piano. I have been exploring music ever since my sister started taking piano lessons. This affected me so much that I insisted to my parents that I also wanted to learn piano. So I started my musical journey and continue it to this day. I finally completed my grade eight piano with a merit. After all the hardship I went through, success was finally shown in my result. I did not end my music after I went to secondary school. There, I joined the Chinese Orchestra Society. My purpose in joining this society was to learn more about my own traditional culture's music. I took a position in strings and my musical instrument is named "erhu". It is a traditional Chinese musical instrument similar to the violin. Instead of having 4 strings, an erhu only has two strings which can also produce beautiful musical notes as a violin does. I absolutely love the erhu and I have discovered that with the my background in piano, I am learning with tremendous speed. My teacher said that I am bestowed with......

Me Myself and I

...Me, Myself & I By Andrea Bridglal Everyone is born into this world innocent. How you live your life, day by day, the decisions you make, now that’s what really affects you. Sometimes, it might not always be your fault. There are people who will always try to bring you down. They’ll try to hurt you. There will always be someone to tell you that you aren’t good enough. If you let it affect you, now that’s on you. That was my mistake. Growing up in New York City, with a single parent, isn’t the most difficult thing in the world, but it sure isn’t that easy. My parents have been divorced since I was three and I never really had any kind of relationship with my dad. He’s an alcoholic and growing up, I realized I would never have the bond that I wanted to have with him. Unfortunately, it took me way to long to realize that. Instead, I pushed away the people who did care and those who did try to be there for me; my grandparents, my uncle, and most importantly, my mom. I felt like I was alone even though I wasn’t. Not only did I push people away, I found it very difficult to let people in. On top of that, I was different. I come from a West Indian, Islamic background and growing up as a minority made it even harder to make friends. September 11, 2001 changed my life completely. No, I didn’t lose a loved one but I did lose something with equal value, self respect. My self-esteem was shot at 7 years old. I became ashamed of who I am, the color of my skin, the texture of...

...Styles After taking the LSI (Life Styles Inventory) survey, I noticed certain things about my personality and my thinking styles. Certain styles rated higher than others, but there were a few that stayed constant. The two longest style extensions have the greatest influence on my behavior, and are called your primary and backup styles. Going through these styles in particular, I noticed my primary style is approval and my backup style is conventional style. In the LSI index, “The Approval scale measures our need to be accepted by others to increase or sustain our feelings of self-worth. While the desire to be approved of is natural, problems occur when approval-seeking becomes a need, and ultimately our standard way of interacting with others.” This means I need people to approve my lifestyle. I try so hard for people to impress people with my personality and character, but sometimes it’s not enough. This style is categorized as having low self-esteem, an over concern with wanting to be liked as well as complications with conflict and confrontation. In this case, I am the type of person who tries very hard to be liked by others. Sometimes it can backfire because I show a persona of myself to people where I will act like someone I am not so that they accept me. In this world we live in, it’s a dog eat dog world where people don’t care about your feelings. They will do anything to get to the top of ladder. Personally, I am the type of person who truly feels better when......

...Me, I and myself I always ask myself: is it me, when I do something; could I do it better this time or did I do it for myself. I have time to think about these things while working. I work as a photographer and this job gives me a chance to express myself. It helps me even to understand some things better, because at first view I see things one’s way but after a while a see them completely different. The job gives me even the freedom to choose what to shoot and so the theme of my pictures often responds to my mood at that day. Or I can take pictures that will make me feel better than I do at that moment. Being a photographer is a job with so many various purposes – as many as the people are. Some photographers make only black and white pictures, other make colorful or extravagant or pictures that help in a science. The objective of the camera is like an eye of a man - everyone sees the world in a different way. But nobody can’t hide behind his work, even if he tries – it shows what we are. The most important thing for a picture to become a good one is to have its own feeling. When you a see a picture and it touches you, it rises in you some kind of feeling, that means that this capture was worth. Looking at some pictures make me think about many things and sometimes I can even change my point of view about something. While taking a picture I think about what’s my purpose for shooting exactly this or that. But after the picture is ready, it......

...If he can stomach more than ten straight shots without feeling a thing, he drinks too much. 6. Ask the uncomfortable things. When was the last time he was so high he couldn’t speak? What does he regret the most? Does he drink to remember or to forget? 7. Don’t send pictures unless you want to. If he has to talk you into it, don’t do it. If you hesitate, don’t do it. If you do take a picture, don’t include your face. Keep yourself safe. 8. If you can’t laugh when you’re having sex with him, maybe you aren’t sleeping with the right person. Sex isn’t about tricks and tips and routines. 9. If he hurts you, cut him out. He’s gone, he isn’t coming back, and you don’t need to prolong the pain. 10. Don’t be afraid to open up again.

...Talley, SASI: I would like to find out more about the mental health condition PTSD(also own as Post Traumatic stress disorder) in the united states military. This condition is triggered by terrifying events. Either experiencing it or witnessing it. This condition is considered to be a relatively new diagnosis, as the name first appeared in 1980, the concept of the disorder has a very long history. That history has often been linked to the history of war, but the disorder has also been frequently described in civilian settings involving natural disasters, mass catastrophes, assault, rape, and serious accidental injuries. I would like to discover more on the disorder. After tragic events, many people gain this disorder. I would like to determine whether PTSD is curable. As a consequence of the complexity of this condition, my project will be a two-semester project. In my research paper, I will discuss the causes of the condition(PTSD), the US military's involvement in it, whether the condition can be cured or not, and what it has to do with civilians have to do with it. The research will come primarily from current periodicals, internet sources, interviews, and some historical texts.

...Emotions are one’s state of mind and natural responses, but scientific discourse has drifted to other meanings. It’s also evident that emotion senses on the meanings. I have experienced more positive emotions over the past four day. These emotions are characterized by happiness and positive expectations. These emotions are expectation of a brighter future. This because I had been informed a job opportunity had been secured on my behalf. This has been my dream since I was born. This was a dream come true because, I have always been thinking about the job. These positive emotions brought about anxiety in me thus I was not able to settle. I have also had negative emotions in the last four days. These emotions have generated negative thoughts in me. This can be as a result to a response of an expected trip that I was eager to be present. I could not believe my ears to hear that the trip had been cancelled due to the fact that one of our friends had lost their parents. The fact that I was not aware also brought about a negative emotion (Cassady & Eissa, 2009). Emotions are complex. According to some theories, they are a state of feeling that results in physical and psychological changes that influence our behavior. This can also be linked to the arousal of the nervous system with various states and strengths of arousal relating, apparently, to particular emotions. It’s also linked in some way to behavioral tendency. A similar description can be derived from the sociology....

...I have no single philosophy for life, but rather three philosophies. Each of which has different meaning. My three philosophies include the following: work hard, take pride in myself and the accomplishments that I make, and also everyone is on this planet for a reason. In the following paragraphs I will explain each of my three philosophies. From this, I hope that others will understand why I look at life the way that I do. The first of my three philosophies, to work hard, can be very easily explained. I feel that if money or a gift given to me by another person because I earned the reward is much more valued. In other words, knowing that I worked hard, did a good job, and deserve a reward makes me feel good inside. I also feel that all persons should have to work and support themselves. If a person doesn't wish to put forth any effort and work hard to support themselves, then that person deserves nothing. The next of my three philosophies is to take pride in myself and the accomplishments that I make. I have found that if I don't take pride in myself and what I do than I might as well give up on life. My reason for this being that no one else will think highly of me if I, myself, don't. I always set goals for myself before I begin a project or take part in an activity. My rule is to "Set my goals high, but obtainable," and although I may not always reach all of my goals that I have set, I should always be proud of what I have done. My final philosophy, everyone......

...it by their senior year”. These kids are in danger of sexually transmitted diseases {STD}.There is also a big possibility for them to get pregnant, and this is why sex education should be taught to avoid from these things from happening. In sex education, students are also taught of abstinence. They are taught that they should only have sexual intercourse after they get married. In case the parents are always away from the children, sex education should be taught to them so that they would learn it from an educated and responsible adult instead of learning it from the media or from their friends. -- There will always be peers who would badly influence others -- “I remember my bus mates when i was in high-school they were only ages 8-10 , but the words that came out of their mouths were foul sex language, and i was really surprised, and the bus driver didn't even intend to lecture them.” “It is better for children to be informed earlier because they will still know about it when they grow up as they will be more exposed to it through their peers and the media.” People say that sex education teaches students about how sexual intercourse is done, but the truth is that sex education lets the students know about their consequences and the truth about sex. One may likely suffer emotional or mental depression which may lead to suicide.  Students are informed that it is only unity and procreation of married couples who are committed to each other. They are also informed that......
