“I Can’t Help The Way I Feel” by John Isaacs The exhibition I chose is called “Medicine Now” which is being exhibited in Wellcome Collection. The exhibition is mainly demonstrating views of various artists and scientists about current common topics like obesity, genetics and how they describe the defects uniquely either with scientific explanations using video installations or creating huge objects and relating them to more abstract terms such as emotions and feelings.

I think the most interesting piece in the entire exhibition was the one John Isaacs did, “I Can’t Help The Way I Feel”. The object is made from wax, polystyrene, steel and expanding foam, which are all covered in oil painting. The shape is to be considered as a human body with no head and arms but a fat giant torso, fat belly parts, and some parts that I can’t name which are coming out of the body in huge proportions. The size of the structure is enormous so that is the first thing you notice when you enter the room. The basic thing that comes up to mind is that this object is about obesity, and it is also referring to malaria. There are some defected skin areas on the back of the structure and also on the legs. If the object was just about obesity and malaria, I think it would be too obvious. But as I expected, the idea of all the sagging parts reflects also an abstract meaning. Isaacs wanted to describe how life sometimes feels so overwhelming. I think, he wanted to show what is also going on inside our body, in our mind basically. He wanted to show about our internal, unseen parts by using our external part; skin. He made the skin tissue unusually swollen, to say how much our feelings and our over thinking about stuff restrain us from doing what we actually want, and in the end, how they turn into something heavy –psychologically that starts to make us unhealthy. I think this is the part…...

...“Self-disclosure is an important requirement for friendships as well as intimate relationships; you cannot form authentic relationships without it.”(Sole, 2011, sec.7.5) I agree with the author; Hitch also uses trickery and deception to win over the woman. Here is an example this deception; one client pretended like he almost got hit by a taxi cab to save a lady’s dog so he could go out a date with her: the plan did work. Yes, developing interpersonal relationship skills and self dis closure are sometimes risky and it may leave you feeling vulnerable; disclosure is a process that develops and expands over time. I believe that is the step Hitch is missing in his quick three day guarantee. In a recent article I read, “Can We Talk” was very interesting to me it shared some helpful tips about self- disclosure such as quality conversation, Orbuch says,” Every single day is a good starting point for couples seeking to reconnect by following her 10-minute rule, it is spent trying to touch on goals, values, important friendships or sources of stress, according to her research it makes the couple much happier.”(Schoenberg, 2011) This research was sparked because a British dating site claimed that a couple married for 50 years will speak for an average of only three minutes during an hour long dinner. I happened to agree with the findings of the research that the couples have to talk on the phone or email or in person, and they have to ask questions that relate to their......

Why Can't I Belong

...Why Can’t I Belong Belonging such a fickle term, such a horrid and vile word and James hated it. Perhaps it was not the word itself, but more so the weight it carried. He hated the idea of being part of a group of friends and never thought about trying to fit in, as it had never worked. That is why he hated belonging, because he never had, or at least no one had ever let him. Being part of a group was so important James when he was younger, and he had tried many times to make friends with his classmates, but nothing had worked. He tried playing the games they played, listening to the music they listened to, the whole works, but nothing seemed to pan out for him. No matter how hard he tried the would snicker at him, make jokes at his expense, or simply ignore him. It was infuriating and confusing for James, he didn’t understand why no one would accept him. His parents had always told him that if her was himself people would like him, and that there was no point in acting like someone he wasn’t. That was what seemed to bother James though, when he was himself, still no one liked him; and if no one liked him for him, when why should he like himself? All of these thoughts, all of the anger, all of the confusion, it was overwhelming. James felt completely isolated, he felt like he didn’t belong. That word, just part of the cyclical thinking he experienced, and every time that it emerged it tore away another piece of his being. A million times over James had thought about what had...

In the Results Browser, bring up the Global TCP statistics for Delay (sec) and Segment Delay sec). In a short paragraph, comment on the delay graph. 3. Overlay the statistics for Client Received Segment Ack Number and Sent Segment Ack Number. Zoom until you see a definite separation and shapes as below. Write a short paragraph explaining why the client numbers are so different from the server numbers and a description of what is happening. 4. Given the configuration of the Packet Discarder, write a short paragraph explaining why the server’s Congestion Window size has this variation. Paste a copy of this window into your lab report. When finished, hide or delete the panel. I have to many problems with this lab as you can see. The congestion window size could vary due to bandwidth variation, packet loss and jitter. 5. Examine the statistics for the client node. Have the packet drops affected anything on the client that you can tell? It happens the same thing on the client computer. A drop off accurs as well. 6. Examine the Delay stats for the entire network (Global) and for the nodes. Can you see any delay caused by these drops? Based on the stats for the entire network I would say......

Who I Am and What I Feel

...Elcano, Divine Hyacinth E. Block 24 Fil11 I’m a crybaby. I cry a lot, I complain a lot. Minsan niloloko pa ako dahil ang babaw babaw ng luha ko. I have an idea na talaga na ganun yung mangyayari, I even told myself na “parang retreat siguro ito kaya sinabi ni Ma’am na paiiyakin kami next meeting.” Hinanda ko na ang sarili ko sa mangyayari, but things happen unexpectedly, I just found myself crying simula palang. Simula ng tumuntong ako sa elementary, unti-unti ring lumalayo ang loob ko kina Mommy at Daddy. Hanggang sa nag high school ako at halos wala na silang alam sa buhay ko. I never share secrets to them, sinasarili ko lang lahat, mula sa sinasabi ng iba sa akin, hanggang sa mga ups and downs ko sa pag-aaral. Siguro kasi lagi silang busy kaya ayaw ko ng dagdagan pa yung pinoproblema nila. Gaya ni Ma’am napaka strikto rin ng magulang ko, dapat ganito, dapat ganiyan, there even comes a time na I feel like I was under their shadows. Nasasakal ako sa kanila, naiinis ako sa kanila, I even told myself “I hate them!” ang sama kong anak, and I admit it. Sa kabila ng sakripisyo nila sa akin, ganun pa yung iniisip at sinasabi ko sa kanila. I’m selfish, I’m self-centered because of the things that happen to me. Hindi naman sila nagkulang sa pagpapa-alala sakin eh, I know that they were there pero may something na gusto kong maramdaman mula sa kanila, it was their support at yung konting words of encouragement man lang. Maraming mga......

I Movie Review

...he's been quite successful at it all these years, it has slowly started to have an adverse effect on his films to the extent that even the presence of a bankable star, say Vikram, doesn't add much value to the output. In his much anticipated film I, Shankar proves that only he can take a wafer thin story and turn it into something outlandishly beautiful yet complex, leaving you with an afterthought - "Why can't he ever make smaller films for a change?" Mostly known for making message-oriented films in which the hero singlehandedly takes on the system, Shankar attempts to tell a romantic tale in his latest offering, said to be made at a budget of over Rs 100 crore. Vikram plays a bodybuilder, Lingesan, who idolises Arnold Schwarzenegger and supermodel Diya, played by Amy Jackson. If the posters of Arnold decorate the walls of his lower middle class home and his gym (which is named after Arnold), there's a box full of women's products endorsed by Diya in his bedroom. In a funny scene, when he's caught red-handed by his friend and asked what he is going to do with all the products (holding a pack of sanitary napkin), Lingesan nonchalantly says he will use it as a pillow. In these refreshing initial moments, Shankar helps us understand that Lingesan has extreme liking for Diya but doesn't love her yet because of their social and cultural divide. There's a wonderful scene where Lingesan's mother asks his friend what's wrong if her son is fond of a model he sees on......

Place I Feel Most Comfortable

...The place where I feel most perfectly content would have to be the gym. Going to the gym and exercising is the best decision I’ve made in my life. I started 3 years ago as a kid with horrible self-esteem and zero self-confidence. I would walk with my head down and never give myself any credit for anything I did. Three years later of hard work and dedication in the gym has made me a completely different person. It has given me so much more self-confidence and a different look on life. I was very intrigued by fitness from the start. I would come home and read articles online about how to better myself in the gym for countless hours on end. I became knowledgeable about exercise and nutrition very quickly and would constantly be approached by complete strangers in the gym with questions regarding these topics. I was astonished that I went from a kid that was extremely ignorant of anything to do with exercise or nutrition to someone that others trusted asking their fitness questions to. This is when I realized my importance to others while in the gym was much higher than it was anywhere else. While in the gym I was somebody others looked up to and not just someone who was over looked like I was used to. I feel joy and excitement when others tell me they want to look like myself or ask me what my exercise regimen is like. Helping people reach their fitness goals and establishing friendships with them along the way is what I love to do. Watching them experience changes in their......

01.03 Why Can’t I Have It All

... 01.03 Why Can’t I Have It All Why should I study for my upcoming Medical Terminology Test? Costs | Benefits | Sleep time is less (short-term) | Better GPA (long-term) | Less usage of my electronics (short-term) | Be more focused on this test and other to come (long-term) | Less time spent with friends (short-term) | Learned something that will better my future career in the medical field. (long-term) | 1.Explain how the concepts of scarcity, choice, and opportunity cost relate to your dilemma. ◘ Having the drive to want to study is what will take you far. As we all know time is a scarce resource. We want more, but have to do it a limited TIME frame, and scarcity is just that, limited resources. This forces us to make choices, choices that we might not want to make, but have to. Opportunity cost is the most valued alternative, meaning giving up something you want to do but can’t really do. In my case that would be studying instead of pointless time wasting on things that could be dealt with later on in the week. It’s better to chose a goal that will really benefit you in the long run. 2. When making a decision, are the costs and benefits equally important to you? Why or why not. Based on your chart, explain which category, costs or benefits, would have the largest impact on your decision? ◘ When making a decision I would say that the cost and benefits are not equally important. Why not, because I feel the benefits......

Why Can't I Divide by Zero?

...Why can’t I divide by zero? The explanation of why we cannot divide any number by zero is really easy. The three links contain different explanations, but eventually, they all come down to one. To begin, it is said that we students are told that a division by zero is undefined. And this, supposedly is not entirely true, but somewhat true, they tell us this because they, and we eventually cannot define an answer that would work. But in the other hand, if we are told that a division by zero equals to infinity, then that is entirely NOT true. Why? Because as the contents say, infinity is not a number, it is simply like a concept let’s say, because if it would be a number, there would be many contradictions, like the “collision” of our whole number system. So, as mathematician Mahavira (9th century A.D.) said “A number remains unchanged when divided by zero.”, we can get to the simple and easy conclusion that a number cannot be divided by zero simply because, if you multiply that number by zero, the answer will ALWAYS be zero. Now, in the case of 0/0=0, we may say that that is true because 0x0=0, and that may lead to us thinking or realizing that dividing by zero can give you a real number, but this is wrong. We must not confuse, as I said above, any number times zero will equal zero, so therefore the answer to 0/0 can be any number. And also, we must not forget that any number divided by that same number, will equal to one (1/1=1, 2/2=1,3/3=1..), so in that case of......

...just one month old.” The report goes on to say, “Prosecutors said one girl was just 2 years old when the abuse started in October 2002. The other girl was less than 8 months old. The sexual abuse of the boy allegedly began in December 2002, when he was just one month old.” According to The Idaho Statesman Newspaper in Boise, Idaho, “The parents are being charged with four counts of felonies. The first three include the connection with the allegations of sexual abuse by the boys, and the fourth charge addresses allowing a child to walk on dirty floors, in which resulted in infected cuts on the child’s feet.” This sounds more like a child neglect case rather than a connection of a child molestation case. I am not defending the couple in any way, but I feel there is no proof of them knowing about such acts going on between their children. Therefore, it will be hard to prosecute the couple on the molestation charges unless there is some type of evidence that is not being presented or considered until the trail. There was a young boy in Florida several years ago who was charged with the murder of his 6-year old cousin. He accidentally killed the young girl while rehearsing a wrestling move that he had seen on television. The young man was 13 at the time of the murder and was sentenced to life in jail. Imagine if his mother would have gone to trail instead of him because he was her offspring....

Why Can't I Say What I Want?

...Anatomy and Physiology 1-1 Explain the importance of studying anatomy and physiology. Studying anatomy and physiology is important because knowing how normal physiology helps you recognize when something goes wrong with the body. 1-2 Define anatomy and physiology, describe the origins of anatomical and physiological terms, and explain the significance of Terminologia Anatomica (International Anatomical Terminology). Anatomy is the study of internal and external body structures. Physiology is the study of how living organisms perform functions. There are four basic building blocks of anatomical and physiological terms. Word roots, prefixes, suffixes, and combining forms. Terminologia Anatomica serves as a worldwide official standard of anatomical vocabulary. So people all over the world can have the same anatomical terms. 1-3 Explain the relationship between anatomy and physiology, and describe various specialties of each discipline. All specific functions are performed by different structures. Meaning the way a body part is made up (anatomy) gives clues on how that body part will function (physiology). Specialties in gross anatomy is surface anatomy, regional anatomy, systemic anatomy, clinical anatomy, and developmental anatomy. Specialties in physiology is cell physiology, organ physiology, systemic physiology and pathological physiology. 1-4 Identify the major levels of organization in organisms, from the simplest to the most complex...

I Am the Way

...Andrew S. Bledsoe BIBLE 323-B03 03/05/12 I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE -JOHN 14:6 In the Book of John we see Jesus making some very bold statements about Himself, and relating Himself to the Father. The statements all begin with “I AM.” In the Book of Exodus 3:14, God says, “I AM THAT I AM,” [1] Which in Hebrew means I am the One that shall be, I am that was. This statement always comes to those who lack faith, in the Old Testament it came with Moses at the burning bush, in the New Testament it came with the disciples on numerous occasions. One particular “ I AM” statement is the one found in [2] John: 14:7, “Jesus said unto them, I Am the way the Truth and the Life: no man comes unto the Father except through Me.” We were in need of a Savior due to our lack of righteousness that was the key of Christ explaining the way to God. [6] The mediator did not come on His own. God so loved that He “gave”, that He “sent” His Son. We begin the Chapter of Jesus speaking to the disciples in the Upper Room, [3] On page 118 of Jesus is the Christ, “Jesus was talking to the disciples about His imminent departure, finishing with “and where I am going you know the way.” [6] On page 46 of Saved from what by R.C. Sproul, “The promise of entering into Christ’s presence came initially from the lips of Jesus Himself.” While in the...

Think, Feel and Do: I ♥ You

...THINK, FEEL AND DO: I ♥ YOU “True love waits”. And to simplify this briefly, there are three steps on how to prepare in engaging ourselves in relationship. First, solve unresolved problems. Forgiveness and acceptance of one’s failure must always stay in our hearts so that we can move on from our past. Let your rejection be your key to be a better person. Second, stop believing in the “right person myth”. Looking for the perfect one for us is never true. We may feel deeply in love to that person but as we grow day by day with him/her we will meet lots of his hidden attitude that we don’t know yet. Lastly, start becoming the right person. Take the effort and discipline to be the person, the person you’re looking for. Instead of thinking of having our ideal partner for the future let us think also the other way around, molding ourselves to be like the person we are looking for. I Corinthian chapter 13 verses 4-5 said “Love is PATIENT, love is KIND. it does not ENVY, it does not boast, it is not PROUD, it is not RUDE, it is not SELF-SEEKING.it is not easily ANGERED, it keeps NO RECORD of WRONGS. It always PROTECTS, always TRUSTS, always HOPES, and always PERSEVERES. LOVE NEVER FAILS...” In other words, love is not an easy act it is “sacrificial”. Therefore, before we enter in a relationship we must know first our priorities and ready ourselves in taking that tract. In addition, we must also discern well on what vocation we will pursuing for the future. We must preserve our......

...As an Athletic Trainer ethics play a major role. In many cases I evaluate many of the injuries sustained by my student-athletes offering varied suggestions on how we should move forward with either a Doctor Visit or in house rehabilitation. With this responsibility comes opposition from both parents and coaches as they insist I clear an athlete for play or don’t deliver the whole truth to the parents and or coach. Although not as controversial as assisted suicide it poses significant risks and eyebrow raises in the sports world. Doctors, nurses, and various medical personal have a harder role. They wager people’s lives and future and decide in some countries whether or not to permit such an act. In this essay we will explore the facts on Euthanasia: Assisted Suicide, my view, the world view and its progress. Before I begin, however, let me note what I will not try to do. I will not try to show you that Physician Assisted Suicide is a fully justifiable course of action what I will do is give you facts and statistics of this rapidly growing controversial issue.. What I will show you is the compatibility to the commitment to good end-of-life care. One of the most important public policy debates today surrounds the issues of euthanasia and assisted suicide. The outcome of that debate to whether or not it should be made available will profoundly affect family relationships, interaction between doctors and patients, and concepts of basic ethical behavior.
