Is the essay good or bad? what should i work on?3Le2017-10-04 03:20:33
I am applying to U of Wisconsin Madison. one of their essay questions is, "how will you presence enrich our community?" This is my essay: I would like to attend University of Wisconsin because I believe I can enrich the campus environment by bring a diverse group of accomplishments, beliefs, talents, and interests. From the many accomplishments I have achieved, I am the most proud of is becoming the president of the Muslim Student Association. The Muslim Student Association, or MSA, is an organization at university and high school campuses across America which helps fellow students learn about the religion Islam. I became president my junior year in high school by working hard in the club, helping students out with questions they had on Islam, organizing dinners and charity events, even giving a few speeches. I am extremely proud of this accomplishment because I learned a lot while on my journey to becoming president. For example I learned quite a bit about Islam, I learned how to talk in front of big crowds, and how to plan events. Also I really wanted to be president since my freshmen year, and through hard work and dedication I have achieved my goal. I believe I will be able to do the same at University of Wisconsin Madison, where I will earn solid grades and pursue a degree in psychology, and become a clinical psychologist through hard work and dedication. Furthermore I would like to discuss one of my important beliefs. I have many beliefs all of which came through life experiences. My most important belief is feeding the hungry. I always walk around the city of Chicago, while on my walks I notice many homeless and hungry people begging for money and food. I try to help as many as I can, but one person can’t cure world hunger. This is why I believe we should as a community build soup kitchens or in any other way help supply the hungry with food. Actions towards ending hunger will benefit our communities by reducing deaths significantly, since almost 16,000 children die from hunger-related causes every day. That’s about one child every five seconds. I believe if I came to University of Wisconsin I can gain people’s attention toward the problem of world hunger, and hopefully make a movement towards reducing it. Moreover, an excellent talent I possess is communication. I can hold conversations with many people about anything. Learning how to communicate is key to living in a diverse society. And on a diverse campus like University of Wisconsin without communicating with new students of different ethnic/cultural backgrounds you will be depriving yourself of important aspects of the college experience, one of which is trying new things. I also believe that this talent will help me in the field I would like to study in, psychology. I have always been intrigued with the human brain. After taking A.P. Psychology at school, it further reinforced my interest in this subject matter. There are many facets of this field that can be explored whether it’s clinical, educational, industrial, or behavioral and so on. I personally find the specialty of clinical psychology the area I would like to pursue. Clinical psychology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of psychological disturbances. In order to attain this goal, I plan to pursue a psychology degree in college and then go on for my masters at a school for professional psychology. As a clinical psychologist, I would love to gain experience in scoring and administering psychological tests, administering a community health program, and engaging in patient therapy. With this exposure I hope to one day open a public clinic of my own that would further research the human mind and find ways to help individuals cope with their differences. Will this be good or should i start over?[View Answers]
Mind-Body Problem- Too Broad for APA Paper?3Stephanie23-222017-10-02 04:02:01
I have chosen the mind-body problem as the subject for my term paper, in which we are to cite EVERY sentence. I was wondering if there was a way to narrow this topic down because we are only alloted 7-10 pages of space to write- what with a minimum of 30 sources, my references will take up 2 pages alone. Any helpful suggestions are appreciated and thanks! PS- I have to focus on the history of psychology, not present day psychology... so think along the lines of descartes, plato, ect..[View Answers]

people who in english major or good in english ..please help ----Changes in Body Weight: Freshman 15 Today, many freshman students don’t know how to handle their eating habit and physical activity in a right way due to the new environment. Why have people always said freshman 15. Is this just a myth or truth? Some research shows that freshman students are lacking of physical exercised and eating three meals at a buffet-style dinning hall caused them weight change. Did students concern about their health from gaining weight? Gaining weight might appear minor for body in a short term, but it can cause serious health problems in a long term. In order to avoid those problems students must eat balance and do amounts of exercise to stay with a healthy lifestyle through all four years of college. The two study reports “The “freshman 5” A Meta- Analysis of Weight Gain in the Freshman Year of College” authors Rachel Vella-Zarb and Frank J. Elgar and the “Change in Body Weight and Fat Mass of Men and Woman in the First Year of College-Study of the “Freshman 15” authors Daniel J. Hoffman, Peggy Policastro, Virginia Quick, and Soo-Kyung Lee , argues that it is important to identify the exact causes behind weight gain changes and know how to devise appropriate prevention strategies to the students. Although both articles have collect good data about what are the factor effect student being overweight, Vella-Zarb did a better job by giving stronger details from a wide-ranging of year study with 3401 students, establishing Hoffman’s articles are weaker with only 67 students in the study. One of the weight gain problem issue “The “freshman 5” A Meta- Analysis of Weight Gain in the Freshman Year of College,” Rachel A. Vella-Zarb , MA of psychology department, and Frank J. Elgar, PhD of psychology department at Carleton University. Vella-Zarb and Elgar cite their research from twenty-four studies that published in the year between January 1985 and April 2008 to support the conflict of freshman weight gain and the prevention strategies (Vella-Zarb &Elgar 163). The article examined several factors that associated with weight gain: low physical activity levels throughout the year, high junk food consumption, recent dieting, evening snacking, and a combination of dietary restraint and living in residences (Vella-Zarb &Elgar 164).Through the investigation, Vella-Zard and Elgar concluded that greater understanding of freshman weight gain could lead to prevention of this weight gain and thus a decreases in overweight and obesity among young adults (Vella-Zard &Elgar166).In particular, Valla-Zard and Elgar comments, “college health care providers should design weight gain prevention programs for first year students” meaning that programs should require for students to attend and give skills to prevent from weight gain, such as stress and lifestyle habits that can cause the factors of gaining weight instead of telling them started to eat less (Vella-Zard &Elgar 165).College should give a right message for students to balance their intake and exercised, buffet-style is all you can eat, but also mean need to moderate balance energy intake and expenditure in body weight, otherwise many student will end up with gaining weight unless they get greater understanding how to stay with a healthy life. The other article entitled Change in Body Weight and Fat Mass of Men and Woman in the First Year of College-Study of the “Freshman 15”detail by Daniel J. Hoffman, Peggy Policastro, Virginia Quick, and Soo-Kyung Lee, faculties in the Department of Nutritional Sciences at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey in New Brunswick. They examine weight change from focus on a sample of freshman, who attending the State University of New Jersey. The method they used to determine the weight change is not powerful enough and it is harder to believe those facts only from 64 students .Therefore, the result of the study finding that students didn’t pay much attention in their intake and outtake during a new environment, which cause them weight keep increasing. Hoffman concluded that “students recognize that weight changes seemingly minor and perhaps even harmless changes in eating or exercise behavior may result in large changes in weight over an extended period of time” (Homan43). In particular, Hoffman states, “For those students who experience weight gain over the period we studied, if their energy balance is not controlled, they could placing at risk for obesity and chronic diseases later in life” (Hoffman 45) which mean take controlled of what they eat is important for the solution. Overall, both journal articles have credible issues about the reasons of weight gain, because the information proves that is coming from valid experiments, which make the reader more believable. Both studies also provides similar claim for their supporting reason to prevent weight gain among students entering college is great and it is impor[View Answers]

TherapyColor.com. 5 Oct. 2008 <>.http://www.therapycolor.com/>. This site was some what helpful because it explains step by step how the colors are affecting our mood, emotions and health. It also explains how certain colors would help with nutrition or give off more energy to the body. It gives examples of how bright colors can help you live longer by stimulating the tissues and organs in your body while increasing your hormones. In this article the author describes that there is no possible way of getting to much color therapy. There are charts listed below the article explaining the affects of certain colors and what may happen if you are over stimulated by a color. Also, in the first paragraph there are some tools listed that will help you to get the color therapy you’re looking for and depending on what color it is, what you will be affecting. My first source didn’t have as much detail in the processing of color therapy. This one by far has been the most useful sight in answering my question. This article was written by Ads by Google. It was intended for anyone looking for ways to maybe help with medical problems or maybe you’re having a bad day and want new ways to cheer yourself up. McCasland, Lisa J. "Stimulate Your Baby with Bright Colors." Personal interview. 6 Oct. 2008. Ms. McCasland is the Child Development teacher here at the high school. She has a Bachelors Degree in science and she has studied children psychology for many years. In her interview we discussed how babies are proven to be more stimulated by brighter colors rather then the more pastel dull colors. The bland and soft colors put them to sleep. Studies have shown that childrens imaginations and learning process is actually stimulated by neon or brighter colors. The most attention catching colors to a baby’s eye is neon green, red, bright blue and black. Children are not only stimulated by seeing colors on a wall or on a toy but by what they wear. In research it was shown that plain cloths do little to activate the process of personality development. Childrens cloths need to be mixed of bright and dark colors along with logos and pictures. As you know colors around you affect how you feel and how you assert yourself. Decorating your babies’ nursery in certain colors can make a difference of how well your baby rests, sleeps, or even how much your baby eats. Red and orange can be used to increase your babies’ appetite. The color blue is the ideal color to promote sleep for over-active children, enhancing decision-making and communication. When painting your Childs nursery keep in mind that bright colors stimulate a babies senses, helping them focus and concentrate. Babies need stimulation of their senses as much as they need rest for their bodies. It is a theory that babies are born color blind. There have been tests that show if you show a baby repeatedly a shade of blue then another shade of blue they will treat it the same and get bored. But if you show them a green they will perk up and start looking again. This shows that babies are aware that blue falls into the same category of color. When colors were represented in pairs babies tend to look for the longest amount of time at blue, red, purple, and orange, and the shortest amount of time at brown. There was some questioning that the stimulation of a child mind could be based on some cultural differences. When an experiment was done on 24 Chinese and 24 English children both cultures showed similar likes and preferred highly saturated, richer colors then desaturated colors of the same hue. Meola, Kalyan V. "The Psychology of Color." HOHONU. 2005. The University of Hawaii. 1 Oct. 2008 <>.http://www.uhh.hawaii.edu/academics/hoho… This article has many explanations on color psychology containing the effect it has on humans and their emotions. However this article does not explain the importance of colors and the effects it has on children during their years of development. This article focuses both on the effect of light then the effect of colors. It explains how people who suffer from SAD are deprived of sun for six months at a time, and some side effects of this disorder. Sir Isaac Newton was the man who proved that light could be broken into a range of color. Newton was the one who chose the seven hues. This article explains why certain things in life are a certain color. Like a plant is green because of photosynthesis and the stop sign is red because the color red has an exciting effect on the nervous system.

Can someone check my autobiography, please?0Qierra2012-11-03 01:42:08
I was born on December 31, 1988. I spent my childhood and teenager years in a small country village in l’Aquila province, located in the Abruzzo region of Italy, where I lived until the age of twenty-one. After the 6th April 2009 Earthquake, which shook my town, I moved to Germany and Spain where I improved my language skills having new cultural and social experiences. I live currently in Venice, a city in northern Italy. My family situation is generally considered atypical: my father has spent most of his life abroad, especially in Russia and Poland. He currently works as a financial officer for a Spanish multinational in Sevilla, the capital of Andalucia. My mother is half Italian, half Belgian. She was born and grew up near the Belgian town of Charleroi, where she attended primary and secondary school. She completed her high school and undergraduate studies in l’Aquila where she works as doctor. My sixteen-year-old sister is a student of the High school “Liceo artistico Fulvio Muzi” in l’Aquila. After graduating from high school, she would study photography at the “Accademia di Belle Arti” in Florence. Our mother tongue is Italian, but we frequently speak French at home. I graduated from my high school “Liceo Scientifico Andrea Bafile” in 2007 with all of my student credits. We attended many hours of mathematics, chemistry, biology and physics for the whole five years, plus two languages: English and French. My curriculum of study has also included the choice of a third language between German and Spanish. Contrary to common belief and my high school studies, I have always been more interested in humanistic subjects like Italian, Philosophy and History. I found French revolution, Giovanni Verga’s style, and Hegel’s “Mind” and “Spirit” very interesting topics. Subsequently I was confident that I would have chosen something of different from my previous studies. I enrolled at the University of Political Science in Padova. Political systems and behaviour were the basis of my degree although intersects with other fields; including public policy, national politics, economics, international relations, comparative politics, psychology, sociology, history, law, and political theory. I followed particularly the thought of an American professor of the University of Chicago, John Mearsheimer, reading his interviews and books. Despite my interest for those subjects, I realized to not wish a future in policy. I left my studies at the half of my second year, and spent the rest working abroad. When I returned in Italy, I have began lecturing at the University of Venice, this is my first year.[View Answers]
Can someone please edit my essay for social work?0caro2012-11-02 16:26:18
I wanted to become a social worker when I realized that Social Work is very similar to Psychology, my major in undergraduate school. Similar with the exception that it puts more emphasis on helping people find their strengths, rather than giving them a diagnosis and being predominantly problem-focused. My own experience in helping people with their problems, and enjoying it, influenced me to pursue a career in Social Work. Becoming a full professional with a graduate degree in Social Work represents the culmination of many years of personal and professional preparation. I have always enjoyed working people and helping them with their problems. At 34, I feel that I have the maturity necessary to perform at my best level once again, as a student. I also have a high level of motivation that accompanies my current position. I work with incarcerated youth who, by the way, are mostly minorities.I am deeply concerned by the explosive incarceration rates in America, specifically the way males lead the way in going to jail, rather than going to college, working, etc. I feel this sense of urgency makes me an excellent candidate for your Master's Program because I am so fully engaged at my place of employment.It is my sincere hope to be able to contribute to discussions of how to best counsel and care for at-risk youth. My research interest focuses on boys, especially those at risk for spending their young adulthood behind bars. I am currently working at Harbor View Adolescent Center. I am a Youth Counselor for incarcerated youth with behavioral and emotional problems in a residential treatment facility. In my job as a youth counselor, my primary work responsibility is to serve as a positive role model for adolescents aged twelve to eighteen. The residents have backgrounds of homelessness, and are also victims of physical and sexual abuse. Some of them were dealing with drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and juvenile justice system. At times, my job could be extremely stressful But I discovered that I had the ability to connect with the adolescents and develop strong emotional ties with them. I focused on helping them with their social skills, coping skills, and independent living skills. My main goal was to help them build their self-esteem and improve their sense of security. The adolescents that I worked with in the residential treatment facility Could get physically assaultive AT TIMES; throwing chairs and banging their heads on the doors. They would also exhibit self-harming behaviors. It was during these criTICAL situations that I would get stuck in knowing WHAT the best clinical approach WAS to use when they were self-harming. I would like to have better tools for helping these kids when they are in crisis and KNOW whether those interventions are well supported by the literature. I hope that, with the aid of a Master's Degree in Social Work, I CAN ACHIEVE that. I WANT TO be able to help my kids in THEIR TIME OF crisis and (OMITam at) TEACH them the necessary skills THEY WILL NEED TO transition into more independent WAY OF living. These youth need all the help and attention we can give them in order to fight recidivism, especially THE African- American and Hispanic males, who continuALLY come back into our system. If you were to grant me the privilege of studying in your program, I WOULD LIKE TO research the recidivisim rates of black and Hispanic juveniles and young adoLEscents. I WISH to contribute to our understanding of how we can best go about saving their lives and, at the same time, easE the financial burdens on our society.[View Answers]
