Obesity in America
Since I came to the United Stated, everywhere I go I see people who are so obese that they can hardly walk. The first time, it was very strange for me simply because I never saw that kind of obesity before in my country. I wondered how someone could let himself become a part of this situation, which makes me ask this question, “Why are people more obese in the United Stated than other countries?” Finally I found that we have many ways to prevent obesity but education is the best way to prevent obesity I America such as schools provide healthy food, physical education and empower parents caregivers with simpler.
First of all, providing healthy food in schools is the best way to change their eating habits the hope that the younger generations of children will start a healthier America. A major part of a child’s is spent at school. While the main focus should be on education, administrator should ensure that there is a healthy food selection for children. For instance, in the most schools, there are vending machines which consist of very unhealthy foods such as soda, chocolates, and chips. In the cafeterias, the menu includes French fries and burgers. With this kind of selection, it is very difficult for a child to eat healthy. Therefore, schools should offer more beneficial foods such as salads, sandwiches to cater to the health of the students. By having healthy choice of foods in schools is not only makes these foods more accessible, but also affordable. Schools are required to set their prices low enough so children can afford them. Low price health foods that are easy to attain make it an easy choice buy healthy foods. This process help reduce the effects of fatting foods creating obesity. Also according to Mrs. Obama launches the Let’s Move, it said, “Upgrading the nutritional…...

I managed to get a job bussing tables at a supper club on the lake. I continued working in restaurants until the age of nineteen, moving up the ladder from busser, to hostess, and eventually settling on bartending. I liked restaurant work, for the most part. Truth be told, it was the money that kept me in the field. My experience was so narrow, that I had a hard time getting out of it. Management at this point in my life was never something that interested me; I was content just doing my job. I was immature, and did......

My Experience in Clinicals

...There are many reasons why I'm happy in my new career in nursing, a profession full of humanism, sacrifice and dedication. There have been many positive experiences in my performance during this course such as the improvement of my English, the knowledge gained in the field of nutrition and legality, but my greatest satisfaction has been in clinical practice in the hospital assigned. I have experienced the importance of a proper performance of nursing technique in each of the procedures to be performed with the patients, the interest of nurses in training us and the gratitude of patients when we give them a quality service. It is extremely important to follow the steps in each nursing techniques because omit or used incorrectly can have negative consequences in the diagnosis, treatment and complications in the patient. Once, the equipment used in hospital to measure blood pressure did not work properly and it was necessary to use a conventional aneroid sphygmomanometer, the result was a significant difference in the patient's blood pressure due to an incorrect technique. Diastolic blood pressure was very high because they interpreted the change in tone of the last heartbeat and not its total disappearance as a reference in this data. In another case, a patient suffered a slight aspiration due to the angle used to raise the head of the bed was less than the appropriate while eating lunch. These experiences were used by nurses to discuss them later in a teaching exercise. So...

...My Experience Brianna Thornton PSY/230 September 20, 2013 Jennifer Owens My Experience Check Point: My Experience  The event that has changed my personality is the kidnapping, rape and attempted murder of myself at the hands of my ex-boyfriend during a psychotic break he had at the end of march of this year. I do believe that it has changed me greatly because I am now a person that will not go out unless I have to, I will not make phone calls unless it is absolutely necessary, I hardly laugh, smile or find good in the world anymore. I used to be fun loving, trusting, and out going, and now I can not even go out of my “safe house” to get a job let alone get groceries or something that I need from the store. I have changed my whole demeanor and cut out all my friends but a select few for fear of him finding me again.  My personality is due to environmental these days because of the event that has just happened but I do believe that the person I once was is due to my genetics. My parents were outgoing, fun loving, and understanding people. They were trusting as I used to be. I feel that this incident was very contributing to my sequestering of myself. I am not sure I will ever get “me” back. As far as my personality goes my humor is gone, the love that I had for life has slipped away and the trust, and zest for everything else is absolutely gone. I do as I have to in my daily life to survive. I think that your environment can be and is a determining factor to your......

My Experiences

...Phillip Mulligan Professor Lothman Introduction to Psychology 23.April.2013 Europe I have been to Europe twice in my life. The first time in 2006, I went with my immediate family. We flew to Germany, then drove to France, Austria, Switzerland, and even saw some of the Torino Olympics in Italy. It was an amazing trip, really opened up my eyes. The second time around was just this past year, in 2012. I flew into Germany again with my Father and a good family friend/neighbor. We met up with my sister who was studying there, then drove All around Germany and to Austria again. Both trips were absolutely amazing and shouldn’t be easily forgotten. Hopefully, they just scratched the surface of my European life The first trip was amazing. The journey started in I want to say 2004, in a very respectful and cultural Swiss restaurant called The Alp Horn, located in Canada. This was the restaurant that my family went to each year for three or four nights in a row. It was a short 20 minute drive from our hotel that we stayed at which is at the base of Blue Mountain. Blue Mountain is 4 seasons resort, popular for it’s skiing, located about 90 minutes from Toronto. We had always made yearly trips to this place to indulge in one of my fathers greatest pleasures, interacting with nature in the means of winter snow skiing. As we sat in our booth reminiscing on the fun we had just had for the past three days our parents told us something. They said they had a secret and......

...Airport-Terminal3 Summer 2012-2013 April-June 2013 A GLIMPSE TO AN ON-THE-JOB TRAINEE’S LIFE It’s been a week since I started my On-the-Job training here at Cebu Pacific Air Located at Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal-3. Far from being a student; my daily routine has been changed into something unusual for me. I have to wake up early in the morning, prepare myself for the long day ahead, and give out the best upon my working hours. I will be working here for 300 hours; it may take a month and a half, and I’m just on my day. And within those days I already learned a lot of things, more than what I expected. I came to realize the importance of on-the-job training (OJT) to a students’ life. I learned a lot from my experience as an On-the Job Trainee. First of all, I’m very much gratified for the support and understanding of my superiors especially on times when I committed mistakes. More than any learning thought in school, I learned to be with others, to work with people. I learn also to listen to my seniors, even though at times I can’t understand they instructions, I also learn to accept criticism and be apologetic for my mistakes. And also they particularly impart in me what I must know in making use of corporate resources and corporate values. But not all OJTs are as lucky as I am. Not all have a wonderful experience, and that’s the bitter truth. Sometimes some are hired just to do some sort of stuff, worst of all, is when they’re tasked to do......

My Management Experience

...My Management Experiences My management experiences started when I was assigned as the first and only Coal Milling Supervisor. Coal milling then was a very troublesome section, most probably because supervisors in our department are mostly focused in Pyro-processing operation, considered the heart of cement manufacturing. I oversee operations of three units Coal Mill Plants, one unit Coal Flash Dryer and coal conveying systems. I ensure sufficient stock of fine coal in terms of quantity and quality and the continuous availability of all the coal milling equipment. Fine coal is being used as fuel in clinker (semicement) manufacturing. The most recent project in Coal Milling is the state of the art Coal Dozing system worth around P50 M, part of the P2B worth of modification project in the Pyroprocessing department. Coal Mills run 24 hours-7days when the two units Rotary Kiln (Pyro-processing) is in operation. Fine coal consumption is almost break-even with the coal mill capacities. Break down of any equipment in a Coal Mill Plant may result to slow down of Rotary Kiln or reduce in clinker production. Thus, short planning and scheduling of maintenance works at coal mill have to be cautiously implemented and people who will do the job must be motivated to finish the job as soon as possible. If break down of any coal mill took more than eight hours, slowdown of in pyro-processing is inevitable. My Management Experiences During my first year in Coal Milling, I did a...

A Reflection of My School Experiences

...A Reflection of My School Experiences Danielle June 19, 2014 EDUC- My immersion into the education field began around 1978. Every Saturday, I would help my mother load up her car with musical instruments of all sorts, and head on over to the Community Center in one of the toughest neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Despite the grime and crime ridden neighborhood that the Center was located, on the inside, one would never know of the issues that existed on the outside. There, I met my first group of children with disabilities, children with Down’s Syndrome. My mom came here every Saturday to teach these students who were from the local orphanage, music. My job was to pass out the instruments and help where needed. The funny thing about my experience when I look back is that I NEVER saw those kids as being “different” I mean I noticed that they had mongoloid features and stubby fingers but they laughed and acted as silly as I did. I didn’t know it then, but that is when I got the “teaching bug.” They say it takes a special person to teach special education, and that is very true. My first classroom experiences may have made the toughest teacher quit. I’ve been spat at, had feces thrown on me, food tossed at me just to mention a few, but none of those incidences broke my spirit because I believed that I could, along with the help of my paraprofessionals, turn these students around. No, it wasn’t easy and I went home many a night crying and calling my mom asking her how......

My Experiences of Learning Communication

...My Experiences of Learning Communication Skills A well known proverb goes “Experience is The Best Teacher.” You might be wondering how this proverb holds true for the given topic. Well, communication skills are all about learning from various experiences of life. Communication Skills can be defined as skills that facilitate communication. Communication is synonymous to life, hence learning Communication Skills is inevitable. One starts learning Communication Skills since he starts living. Even to breathe a new born baby starts crying. Basically, these skills are known to every human being. It is just that we realize them. For example you don’t teach a baby how to cry. What we learn are some tactics or ways that will improve our communication skills. Communication Skills includes basically four skills, i.e. Reading, Listening, Writing and Speaking. Listening is one of the most important skills in communication. But sometimes poor listening and premature evaluation hampers the communication process. Poor listening means non-attentive, non-evaluative and non-empathic listening. In business, communication is hampered when the receiver evaluates the message before getting the complete information. This happens particularly when one receives new ideas. Human mind resist change hence inattentive listening is done. The best example of poor listening is in the Parliament where a minister is presenting some new idea for the welfare of the country. The other members are not......

My Bullriding Experience

...My Bull Riding Experience In society, bull riders are looked upon as modern gladiators by some. They step into the arena in an attempt to conquer the beast before them. By others, bull riders are looked upon as adrenaline junkies simply looking for their next “fix”. I’ve always had a curiosity as to what keeps these athletes coming back to the arena after sustaining injury after injury. Is it the love for the sport, the natural competitive nature of human beings, or something else entirely? The sport is seen as primitive to outsiders, almost barbaric. Man versus beast, beast versus man. What else is there to win in a sport like this other than pride and enough money to pay for your medical bills? Even these questions I had prior to my experience did little to deter my curiosity. I set out to gain a little more information about the sport before attempting what is known as the “most dangerous eight seconds in sports”. It doesn’t take a professional, however, to know that I wasn’t going to last eight seconds, on my first go-around anyway. I found out that the taming of bulls has ancient roots dating as far back as the Minoan culture. The first recorded bull riding events took place in the 16th century during Mexican haciendas. Primarily, everything that I learned taught me that the act of bull riding, and rodeo events in general, have been around for a long time and are deeply rooted in almost every culture. After I conducted my brief research, I was excited to begin......

The Greatest Experience of My Life

...Avisek Parajuli The Process of Writing Prof. Michael Lally Narrative Essay 11/2/2013 The Greatest Experience of my Life “The biggest risk in life is not taking any risk.” Mountaineering is a risk, a danger , fun and a learning about life. It was a feeling of great joy and achievement at the summit - a triumphant success - after overcoming danger, fear, and risk of death. With the purpose of having fun and spending our time, my two cousins, Avinash and Avijit. and I planned to go for trekking to the world’s biggest mountain pass, Thorung La Pass. It was a breathtaking experience. In the beginning of our journey, it was fun. But ‘danger’ and ‘risk’ is a part of every trekking and we soon came to know this as we went higher altitude. Also the immature leadership and dispute between us led to the problem that we had never faced before. “How far is it now?” Avinash asked in a hushed tone. ”Probably, 2 hours more.”. I replied. It was the first day of our trekking and we were tired walking continuously for 7 hours. The weight of the trekking bag and boots added the exhaustion making every one of us look pale. We were all full of sweat. It was soon going to be night so we had to walk fast. Suddenly the weather became a bump on our road. The weather turned blustery. It started lightening and thundering with heavy squall. We were in dilemma how to handle the situation. But then I saw a small hut in the jungle, we......

My Experience with Learning Tactically.

...My Experience with Learning Tactically March 8, 2015 Academic and Career Success Professor Richard Lorgus CTU Online When I was a child about the age of 9, I experienced my first lesson on electricity: electrocution. I had an old television, something that looked like it was from the 70’s that was sitting in my room but belonged to my grandfather. I decided to see if it works, not knowing what curiosity had in store for me, and something instantly ticked in my mind to plug it up. Upon inspection of the power cord, I discovered there wasn’t an adapter on the end, just bare wire. Like the unsuspecting child I was, I divided the cables and attempted to stuff them into the wall outlet and the next thing you know. Pop goes the socket! My mother and stepfather at the time heard the pop and rushed to my room, opened my door, and smelled the charred stench, and saw the black mark in the middle of my forehead from the electricity. That was my first tactical experience with electricity, and it paved the way for my curiosity today. Not everyone has the same experiences, but some are more connected than others. We have those that learn through sound whom are known as auditory learners. Also, those that learn by sight are visual learners. Lastly, you have those that would rather get their hands dirty, the tactile learners. I fit right in the tactile learner range since I prefer to do and learn as I go something of being efficient and getting more done in time. What’s your......

My Experience

...Odalis Lopez August 20, 2015 My Experience at a hospital In a small world nursing is a big concept. My name is Odalis Lopez and I am currently 17 years old. My desire is to get into nursing because I have always shown a growing interest into it. It strikes me as a worthwhile and satisfying career to choose. Meanwhile that has always been my interest; I decided to join an ROP program involving the Medical field. So far being in that program has been my biggest accomplishment because through that program I got to work in an actual clinic called Health Works Medical Group Center. I was in that program for about two months, but in just those two months I acquired many skills that I could use in real life. I learned the basic skills and far more than that. It is satisfying to know that if anyone chokes on food of any type and I am there to provide CPR for them. Knowing that I can aid someone in a chocking situation makes me feel honored, to be able to help out. Assisting individuals is something that I have always enjoyed doing not just physically but mentally. I feel like it is what I am good at doing, I feel good about doing so. During my time in this program I experienced many things. For example, I got to see countless of persons that would come in with really bad injuries as in cuts or fractured legs/hands. On one of the days that I was there, I got to......

My First Experience exact. I have lived in Africa all my life and I loved the African culture. I have not been a globe trotter but every part of Nigeria and Africa is pretty much the same. My first major travel experience is to come to New Orleans, Louisiana United States of America to study after spending eight (8) year in a Nigerian University (University of Maiduguri) without graduating. Everything is entirely different in this part of the world. Unlike some parts of Nigeria that currently does not want westernization including western education. I clearly see what makes America great and New Orleans the crescent city facing the Mississippi river and the birth place of jazz with rich culture. I boarded a Delta Airline to the United States to start the spring semester in Southern University New Orleans in January 2014. I looked forward to seeing the beauty of America as I’ve always see in movies. As I got off the plane at Louis Armstrong International airport (MSY), got hold of my luggage, I started to notice the difference and it dawned on me that I am over 100,000 miles away from home. Evidently, it was different out here than what I use to know. Everyone knew their way around. I barely could communicate because no one had the patience to understand my thick English accent. I tried to speak to a white lady by a corner and she walked away from me after saying “I can’t understand you”. I felt humiliated and wished I could board the next flight back to my country. America was too busy for......

The Unforgettable Experience of My Life

...Journal 4 : The Unforgettable Experience of My Life. I wondered what others had to say regarding their past encountring mishaps and accidents especially during their childhood life. I remembered when I was at the tender age of five. I was quite playful and active child of the age of mine. As simple minded as a child, I never heed to advices and ban the elders used to cry at. Of course being a child of no experience made me curious and persistent to do things as the grown-ups did. Never did I thought of dangers posed in every action and move I take. One day, I woke up to my usual Saturday morning and had the breakfast my mom prepared. She asked me to follow her to her workplace, a primary school which I agreed. There, my mom let me play with the staff’s children so we wouldn’t disturb them at work. But my mom reminded not to go too near the fish pond in the science garden. Lately, some reports were made that student got stung by bees near the fish pond. The beehives was believed to be at the rock pile of bricks. It was normal for my fellow friends and I to play near the fish pond. That place was shady and cool. We played hide-and-seek game. I hid behind the rock pile of bricks and accidentally toppled the unstable structure. The beehives was destroyed at once and the bees were furious. They swarmed over me and stung me. I was lucky as I wore long-sleeved shirt but my bare foot became the target. My friends and I run to safety, but the stings was so much that I cried in......
