...situation of her speech was to deliver one at a commencement ceremony. The definition of commencement is a ceremony at which academic degrees or diplomas are conferred. (Commencement,2012) Even though Ellen did not attend Tulane University, but was a resident of Louisiana so the university had her deliver the speech. Its purpose was help the graduates look at someone’s path to their success through hard times and trials. It was meant as a motivational way to encourage the students that they can succeed. The second video speech was about Lou Gehrig. There were two speakers in this video one of which was a reporter and the other was a witness that attended Lou Gehrig’s speech. It was a lot shorter than the first video but it covered a shortened history of Gehrig’s career and life. The audience that this video was geared to is the fans of Gehrig and possibly also sports fans. It covered only the important facts and kept it short and to the point. The speech seemed more like a short documentary excerpt that covered Gehrig’s discovery of the disease that caused his career and life to end abruptly. Giving a comparison between the 2 videos is quite easy they were both setup to target their specific audiences and succeeded at that. While video one was longer than video two, the second gave a more detailed description of what it was covering from the beginning. However video one with Ellen’s speech, I feel was better because it kept the audience tuned into what she had to say and......

Pre-Diabetes

...Deborah Landowski July 12, 2012 Cheryl Matheis Objective Research Essay Pre-diabetes Are you very hungry? Are you very thirsty? Are you tired or don’t get enough sleep? Are you overweight or lack daily exercise? These are just a few symptoms you may experience if your body is trying to tell you something. You need to know what your body is saying and more importantly listen to it. Unfortunately, our body does not always tell us what we need to know; pre-diabetes is most often a silent condition with no symptoms. Pre-diabetes is when your blood sugar level is between 100 and 125 milligram per deciliter. A simple blood test can tell if you have pre-diabetes and detect if you are at risk of developing the lifelong disease of type 2 diabetes. According to health professionals at revolution health, the process begins when the pancreas can’t make enough insulin and/or when the body’s tissues can’t use insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that helps the body’s cells use sugar “glucose” for energy. It also helps the body store extra sugar in muscle, fat, and liver cells (Rea, 2008). Most people with pre-diabetes do not have any symptoms but if diagnosed; can delay and in most instances can prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a warning sign that you are at risk for getting type 2 diabetes, meaning that your blood sugar is higher than it......

...cold. Severe asthma attacks, which may not be responsive to standard treatments (status asthmaticus), are life-threatening and may lead to respiratory arrest and death. Despite the severity of symptoms during an asthmatic episode, between attacks an asthmatic may show few signs of the disease. Diagnosis Asthma is defined simply as reversible airway obstruction. Reversibility occurs either spontaneously or with treatment. In many cases, a physician can diagnose asthma on the basis of typical findings in a patient's clinical history and examination. Asthma is strongly suspected if a patient suffers from eczema or other allergic conditions—suggesting a general atopic constitution—or has a family history of asthma. While measurement of airway function is possible for adults, most new cases are diagnosed in children who are unable to perform such tests. Diagnosis in children is based on a careful compilation and analysis of the patient's medical history and subsequent improvement with an inhaled bronchodilator medication. In adults, diagnosis can be made with a peak flow meter (which tests airway restriction), looking at both the diurnal variation and any reversibility following inhaled bronchodilator medication. Testing peak flow at rest (or baseline) and after exercise can be helpful, especially in young asthmatics who may experience only exercise-induced asthma. If the diagnosis is in doubt, a more formal lung function test may be conducted. Once a diagnosis of asthma......

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood

...The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, founded in autumn 1848, was an original artistic response to the revolutionary outbursts of the time in continental Europe. The mysterious letters “P.R.B.” features on the paintings of the young and completely unknown artists caused a stir in the English society. This group was comprised of London’s Academy students including John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and William Holman Hunt, each of whom was eager to change not only the principles of modern art but also the role it played in society. Combining scientific precision, an innovative approach to subject matter, and brilliant, clear colors, Pre-Raphaelitism was Britain's first avant-garde art movement. The members of the Brotherhood were well aware of their place in the culture with non-existent traditions of religious art, which had been obliterated in the 16th century during the Reformation. The Pre-Raphaelites were faced with an uneasy task – to revive religious art without employing the canonical imagery of altar paintings. Unlike the Renaissance masters, “P.R.B.” based their compositions not on imagination but on observations from everyday life. While the Pre-Raphaelites approached the Bible as a source of human drama and searches for literary and poetic meaning, they also addressed provocative narratives of modern life that employed religious iconography. Their compositions, focused on social issues and daily activities, often grew into parables, demonstrating how the......

It was at that moment as tears fell from both of my eyes that I vowed to help humanity by becoming a doctor; I never wanted to feel that helpless ever again.They say you have to be famous or immensely wealthy to change the world and have your voice heard, but I disagree. I believe if you can inspire one person, if you can open their mind, or if you can change one persons way of thinking, then to me, you have changed the world and made it a better place. As strange as it may seem I believe my father changed the world that day. He made me realize what truly matters now, what has never mattered in the past and what always will. Most importantly he made me realized what I wanted to do with my life. Pre med is just the first step in my plan to heal the world. I wasn’t seriously injured that day but I did leave with a scar on my left wrist. That scar is a constant reminder to me of what could have happened that day.

Pre-Colonial

...A Brief History of Philippine Literature in English I. Pre-Colonial Period - Consisted of early Filipino literature passed down orally; oral pieces have a communal authorship – it was difficult to trace the original author of the piece since oral literature did not focus on ownership or copyright, rather on the act of storytelling itself; - Many oral pieces became lost in the wave of the new literary influence brought about by the Spanish colonization; however, according to the Philippine Literature: A History & Anthology, English Edition (Lumbera, B. & Lumbera C.), the pre-colonial period of Philippine literature is considered the longest in the country’s history; - Literature in this period is based on tradition, reflecting daily life activities such as housework, farming, fishing, hunting, and taking care of the children as well; - Oral pieces told stories which explained heroes and their adventures; they attempted to explain certain natural phenomena, and, at the same time, served as entertainment purposes; - Pre-colonial literature showed certain elements that linked the Filipino culture to other Southeast Asian countries (e.g. oral pieces which were performed through a tribal dance have certain similarities to the Malay dance); - This period in Philippine literature history represented the ethos of the people before the arrival of a huge cultural influence – literature as a......

Pre-Interview

...Pre-Interview 1. Know the Company backwards and forward * Know the companies values and tell the interviewer about how your values match the companies values * Know the story of how, when, where, and why the company started * Know the companies mission statement and tell the interviewer why their mission statement is aligned with your career goals. * Understand the financial situation of the company and their competitors * Know the companies goals and ambitions when it comes to the community how they match with what you want to do for the community 2. Practice answering interview questions * The best way of going about this is to download general interview questions that are asked the most in an interview. Write out your answers and memorize the answers for the questions, but not the exact answer; so, it won’t look rehearsed. * Find questions that are specific to your field that you are applying to. For instance, I’m accounting major and I have looked up questions that applied to the accounting field so I will have an idea what an interviewer will ask pertaining to the field I’m applying for. 3. Technology * There are many resources available to you online that will allow you do mock interviews in the comfort of your home.

Pre School

...Akosua Adomako Hillary Gallego English 1301-73481 April 15, 2016 Pre School I have always thought teaching pre-school was the easiest job any teacher could have since children were adorable and mostly fun. It was until I visited a cousin who happens to be pre-school teacher that I realized exactly what teaching these adorable children entailed but I now know the teaching profession is to me the hardest no matter the level being taught. It was a beautiful Friday morning when I arrived with my cousin at a small elementary school. It was about 7 am when these stunning kids started to troop into their class. The atmosphere was precious as some were quite happy to have another day of school and others were whinny to part with their parents. But the cheerful voice of my cousin Miss Mills was enough to make them happy again. They began with their rhymes which reminded me of my days in pre-school I joined in from time to time when they said a rhyme I was familiar with and they filled my heart with gladness that I could actually remember the words. After their recitation, she marked attendance and the star pupil for the week got to choose a book out of selection which Miss Mills was to read to them. As I sat at the back I attentively watching the children a thought crossed my mind that could this day get any better because she had them just the way she wanted them but little did I know that worst was yet to come. I marvelled at the enthusiathism of the......

Pre-Marital Sex in America

...16 November 2011 Pre-Marital Sexuality in America In the Bible, we find instruction, along with real life experiences relating to sex and marriage. The Bible contains a lot of insight on intimate passion and how to please your husband or wife. To engage in sexual activity with your significant other in a covenant marriage is supposed to be a totalizing experience; it should be done in regards to not only reproduction, but also to the enjoyment of both people involved. When sexual intercourse is wholehearted in pleasing both yourself and your partner, and erotic emotion invades every part of your body and soul, we actually think about what we are doing and the person we are doing it with. This is a totalizing sexual experience. But there are plenty of married couples who do not have this experience. On the other hand, there are many unwed, Christian couples who do. If you do not need to be married to have a strong relationship with God, and if you do not need to be married to have a fulfilling sexual experience with your partner, why is pre-marital sex frowned upon? In December 2006, researchers from the Guttmacher Institute found through research that about 95% of America’s public population had already had sex before they were married. Out of that percentage, about 84% of them were unmarried Americans between the ages of 18-23 (Regnerus et al. 1). While most of these people have sexual relationships with their first loves at younger ages or involve themselves...

Collaborative Activity Difference Between the Human History in North America, Europe and Asia During the Pre-Colonial Era

...How did human history in North America during the period described in the Prologue differ from the events of Asia, Eurasia, and Europe? Be specific. The Human History in North America differ from the events in Asia, Eurasia and Europe during the centuries before the colonization because of the influence of factors like Geography, Climate, Crops and Game Animals available. The major events that we are going to focus our comments on in this paper are the Clovis era and the evolution of the Sahara Desert. These two major issues in human history chapped the form of the world in the way that we know it now days. Geography in the part of the globe that we know currently as North America, specifically in the area the Clovis Culture was developed, played an important role in the success of this culture. It is known that the first human came to America crossing over the land bridge of the Bering Straight. This is a major event in human history, and it was possible only due to geography with a help of the climate in the region back then. The climate in the North American region was cold. We can find at the museums a lot of evidence of Ice-age giant animals that roamed the region long before the colonial era. Some historians and scientists argue about the reason why the big mammals disappeared from the region, but one of the theories appoint to an “over hunting” situation. This all means that the area was very good for hunting, leaving no need to plant or cultivate but just the......

Pre-Gaming

...the article to try and make me feel that the higher drinking age is to blame for “pre-gaming” and the reason so many students either die or end up in the hospital while in college. The topic of the article is about college students “pre-gaming” for social events by consuming large amounts of alcohol beforehand. The author’s point of view is that with a younger drinking age a lot of “pre-gaming” behavior could be avoided. * Consider your own experience Growing up in a college town being River Falls, WI. I grew up two blocks from the UWRF campus. Around the time I turned eighteen I started getting invited to a lot of college party’s and frat parties and so on. I can relate to the binge drinking aspect. We all had to try and get ourselves good and buzzed up, before we went out for the night. Having the drinking age being 21 in my eyes sets the stage for a lot of young adults to have to “pregame” before going out. When young adults are away at college, sometimes it’s there first time away from home, there are going to want to drink and experience the “college” life. When you tell young adults that they can now vote, and that they can make all their own decisions and even go away to war and potentially die for their country, but they can have a beer. They will find a way to drink. To me that’s like adding fuel to the fire, and in return you give people no choice but to rebel, hence you get ‘pre-gaming” behavior. In my eyes if a person who is eighteen years of age and is......
