Poverty in the Philippines
This term paper. We will tackle a topic about Poverty. All of us know Poverty but where the word poverty comes from? Who is the person behind this word? What is the reason why there’s poverty? It is because of the poor people/Urban people or because of the Corruption here in the Philippines? Is it because of the Unemployed people or is it because of laziness to find job that fits their skills?
The word poverty comes from old French poverté (Modern French: pauvreté), from Latin paupertās from pauper (poor). The English word "poverty" via Anglo-Norman povert. There are several definitions of poverty depending on the context of the situation it is placed in, and the views of the person giving the definition. And Mahatma Gandhi once said that “poverty is the worst form of violence.” Today, more than half the population on Earth is living in poverty. Some people may think that poverty is being hungry and homeless, but poverty has deep roots spread throughout the countries and making it even more implanted in the people. The causes of poverty are several, and each country can have causes that differ from other countries. But still, the main causes of poverty can be narrowed down into three main ideas, social causes, political causes and economic causes.
First is the social causes of poverty can be narrowed down to two main topics, overpopulation and education. Overpopulation, as defined by Fight Poverty organization is when a number of people live in a mass of land with deficiency in resources to support them. And also Overpopulation is a problem in poor countries and it is making them even poorer, in developed countries, overpopulation is not a big problem because they have rules for family planning such as restraining the birth rate, for example in China.
Poverty and inequality in the Philippines remains a challenge. In the past four…...

Comapre and Contrasting Two Painting

...The two paintings that I chose for our second writing assignment are Self-portrait on the Borderline between Mexico and the United States and Model with Unfinished Self-portrait. I chose these two paintings for two reasons. The first reason being that both pieces include people. I thought that might make it easier to compare and contrast the two. The second reason is even though they both have people they each have a totally different feel to them. Self-portrait on the Borderline Between Mexico and the United States has an almost confusing feel to it. Kahlo is standing between Mexico and the U.S., and seems lost in and confused about where she belongs. The right side, the U.S., is dominated by industry, and the left, Mexico, is represented by landscape and the Mexican culture. The painting has variety and unity. I think that if I looked at this painting without knowing the title and the intension I would say that this piece has only variety, but because I understand what Kahlo wants to communicate, the variety is unified. Model with Unfinished Self-portrait has a simpler feel to it. It seems to be more peaceful and relaxed. A painting to look at and enjoy, not deciphering the “true” meaning behind it. I think the most confusing part about this piece is the title. Without looking at an outside source to see what the artist looks like, is the model sleeping or is the model sitting at the table. My first guess would be that the model is the one asleep and the artist is......

Unfinished Psych of Terrorism

...PSY 487: Final Paper Lisa Maiorana Spring 2014 What is terrorism and why is it a part of our global society? Terrorism is often the result of some type of social or economic injustice, such as poverty, the unemployment rate, government-imposed restrictions on individual freedoms, and a lack of order or morality. For most Americans, the words “terrorist” or “terrorism,” instantly triggers a flashbulb memory of where they were when the Twin Towers fell on that fateful day, September 11, 2001. Many people continue to struggle with the notion that there are groups out there, brought together by their unanimous hatred for Americans. The 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon is arguably the most disastrous act of terrorism of all time, forcing Americans and the rest of the world to see the threat of terrorism in a new light (Borum, 2003). The 20th and 21st centuries saw new developments in technology that may have changed the game of terrorism, however, extremist ideology and justification of violence, is not a new political strategy (“Terrorism in the,”). Rebel groups have been establishing roots and sprouting up all over the world since the beginning of human history (*CITE #3). The formation of such groups has occurred across centuries, but the term “terrorism” wasn’t coined until the 18th century, during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Revolutionary officials—referred to as terrorists—and their subordinates, enforced the policies of “The......

...Joaquin Anareta Rizal Today We all know that Dr. Jose Rizal did not only spark a revolution but also added a huge chunk of fuel to the flames of Filipino nationalism through his writings and his philosophic ideals. But to what extent is the question. It’s obvious that our national hero loved our country and believed in something greater for our country –a brighter tomorrow, a future of equality. He believed in our potential as should any other country-loving citizen. Indeed, there was no man of that time better qualified to inspire the people. He definitely did not fall short on his credentials, considering he studied medicine in Manila and travelled to Spain to finish his medical degree and later studying ophthalmology in Germany in high hopes of curing his mother’s slowly failing eyesight. While he was in Europe, he became part of the Propaganda Movement, cultivating his nationalistic views which would much later be manifested by his two greatest works, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, two novels that spoke of the dark aspects of the Philippines under Spanish colonial rule, focusing mainly on the abusive friars and the power hungry politics that plagued the local government. This gives rise to the common misconception is that Rizal yearned for independence from our Spanish colonizers. There is no doubt that Rizal loved his country which begs the question “Why wouldn’t he want independence?” Well Rizal was a well educated man who lived most of his adulthood in......

...Ken Kizer MD. coined the term “never events” in 2001 referring to medical mistakes that should never occur (wrong surgery site). The National Quality Forum categorizes never events into six groups: surgical, product or device, patient protection, care management, environmental, and criminal. For a never event to fit into one of the categories never events must be serious in its result (death or significant disability), unambiguous (clearly identifiable and measurable), and usually preventable("AHRQ Patient Safety Network - Never Events," 2011). As of 2006 there are currently 28 “never events” which include unintended retention of a foreign object in a patient after surgery or other procedure, intra-operative or immediately post-operative death in an ASA Class I patient and surgery performed on the wrong body part ("AHRQ Patient Safety Network - Never Events," 2011). In most states there is no mandatory reporting of never events, event though some estimates put national incident rate as high 40 per week. This includes wrong patient and wrong site. Eight hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers in the United States recognized that never events are a critical part of patient safety issues a critical patient safety ("The Joint Commission Center for Transforming Healthcare |Newsroom," 2011). The healthcare facilities joined the Joint commission center for Transforming Healthcare to address the problem. There are currently 25 states and the District of Columbia have......

Ao1 Health and Social Care - Methods of Communication [Unfinished]

...In this assignment I will be talking about the different types of communication that are used in care settings with factors that support and inhibit them. Communication is very important as it means sharing, giving and retaining information, and without daily interactions with other people, either orally or verbally, it would be extremely hard to get information that may be needed. In care settings, communication is vital to help with patients and clients. Communication is important in health and social care is it helps to build a relationship between the client/ service user and carer. There are four types of communication used in care settings, and these are; oral, written, computerised and special methods. Oral Oral communication is the process by which information is given verbally from one person or group of people to another. This includes consultations between a Doctor and a patient within the Doctors surgery. Oral communication can either be informal or formal. The purpose of oral communication is to build a relationship with the service user, therefore building up their self-esteem and making them more confident with talking to the practitioner. Also providing empathy when needed helps to support the service user and therefore gain more trust, that the practitioner will not tell anyone what they have just said and discussed, and that they will keep all their information confidential so no one can access it. It is also used to develop mutual understanding between......

Eric Liddell helps promote the idea of victory by overcoming his religious restrictions Harold Abraham promotes the achievement of victory by overcoming his religious restrictions and winning the gold medal at the Olympics despite being the underdog and being Jewish. He achieves this through through sacrifices and hard work. The audience follows his journey throughout this film, the audience sees his problems, they see his obstacles and they see him beat them.

When he finally races against Eric Liddell he looses that disappoints him to such an extent that makes him almost want to quit the sport but thankfully a brilliant coach called Sam Mussabini feels like he can help create a champion out of this man. Through months of hard and intensive training and brilliant coaching tips Abraham qualifies for the Olympics. His university teachers think otherwise though, they believe that he should stay an amateur as they say it will get in the way of his marks when really they are actually being anti-semitic and don’t want him to be victorius.

Unfinished Social Media Essay

...Social Media Using three quantified examples, define and explain what is meant by the term social media. Social media is a variety of websites and applications that give people the opportunity to create and share images, videos and messages, which can be sent to people all over the world. Businesses are given the opportunity to increase brand awareness, make new contacts, create new ideas and strengthen existing products. Social media easily gives any business interaction with their chosen target market, including answering customer’s questions, and carrying out market research. Instagram is an application that allows people to create a profile where they can share images and videos online, to anyone in the world. This multimedia-sharing app is used widely for businesses such as retailers and restaurants, and it is becoming more vital for a business to use Instagram for advertising and promoting themselves. From September 2015, Instagram currently has over 400 million users, and 80 million posts on average are made every day. One of the main and most important features of Instagram is the hashtag. When someone makes a post on Instagram they can use hashtags to dramatically increase how many people are viewing their post, which will lead to masses of people liking photos and then letting their friends (or followers) see as well. Businesses can use hashtags to promote their products/services through simple keywords, and at the same time potential customers can search for......

Philosophy Paper of Christian Counseling (Unfinished)

...I am a Christian going on to become a counselor and Psychologist. Here is my philosophy that I began writing. It is not complete but will be soon. Introduction: The Need for Biblical Counseling The need for Biblical counseling has always been a need ever since the beginning of sin. When Adam and Eve chose to disobey God in the garden of Eden, a terrible thing happened. Sin had entered into the world, and through sin, sickness, pain, addiction, and hardships also came with it. and it is growing, because Christian and secular culture have changed. The practice of studying and understanding Gods Word has been neglected as people drift away from books and memorization, to electronics and reminders on their devices. People do not think for themselves anymore because there is always an article or some made-up doctrine that fits ones agenda instead of Gods Holy Word. Defining Biblical Counseling – Biblical counseling is selflessly helping people with using a God centered, Biblically immersed, use of language and fellowship to help a person bring glory to God in and through their life using Gods Words Truths. Contrary to secular counseling where the counselor is focused on fixing the problem at hand and nothing more, Biblical counseling has a relational aspect to it meaning that it involves a relationship between two people. It also involves going to and using Gods Holy Word for answers and applying it to one’s life by taking steps to change. One must believe Scripture is...

Ib Reflective Project Unfinished

...Leandra Bizzarro Mr. Matthew Thompson IB Reflective project 20 December 2015 Reflection: Mandated Reporting Student Safety vs. Family Privacy U.S.A. Everyone generally agrees that reporting child abuse and neglect in order to end it is a good thing. Yet, there is so much ethical conflict around mandated reporting and who is required to report. Federal law, 42 U.S. Code § 13031 - Child abuse reporting, section a requires “A person who, while engaged in a professional capacity on Federal land or in a federally operated (or contracted) facility, learns of facts that give reason to suspect that a child has suffered an incident of child abuse, shall as soon as possible make a report of the suspected abuse” (law cornell). This specifically includes teachers and other school officials. This then brings up debates of privacy versus safety and teachers responsibility to the students and their education versus government protocol and responsibilities. School officials must report if there is reasonable cause of suspicion of abuse (ct.gov). This could range from physical injuries, statements the child makes, or evidence of neglect such as weight issues, medical issues, and same clothes day to day. The conflict with many of these forms of reasonable suspicion are the can be because of other things as well. Very often when associating with young children you will realize they often have unexplained scrapes and bruises or fantastic stories for how they got them. A struggle when......

...CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION “Technology... is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.” Carrie P. Snow With remarkable technological advancements in third world countries like the Philippines, modern electronic gadgets play a vital role in everyone’s lives. Virtually every day, we find ourselves in situations that require us to use gadgets and devices to boost up performance in tasks we ought to do. Because of the advent of modern technology, the incorporation of electronic gadgets in student’s education continuously remain as one of the “educational battlegrounds” that is fought over and over again.

...Analysis of root cause of job dissatisfaction and high turnover - Management Leadership & Foreman Issues The root causes for job dissatisfaction and high turnover rates among foremen at the Lima tire plant is due to a lack of job training, high workload, and lack of communication and support from management. There is a severe lack of job training among the foremen. The foremen need training on how to manage, lead, and motivate the union linemen as well as training on union rules and standards. There are problems within the linemen and foremen relationship as a result of the lack of training. There is also distrust and resentment between the union workers and foremen. The union workers seem to be protected by union reps. There was one example where it seemed the disciplinary action taken by the foremen was reversed by the union rep in an attempt the protect the union lineman. This union protection takes authority away from the foremen and further increases the distrust and resentment between the workers and foremen. In addition to lack of training, the foremen are overworked. There are two 12-hour shifts with a 30-minute lunch and 2 breaks, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. In addition to managing the linemen the foremen must maintain production forecasts, identify maintenance issues at start of shift, monitoring labor hours and production rates, safety and health standards, staff production team, scheduling hourly employees, approve vacation......
