Emotional Space

Discussion by: tsaeteurn on Wed, 2016-08-10 16:15 with 0 comments

Boundaries. It is a dividing line that marks a limit of an area which can signify many different things. In the book BOUNDARIES by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, they mentioned Emotional Space. It is a temporary boundary that gives your heart the space it needs to heal and feel safe. “People who have been in abusive relationships need to find a safe place to begin to “thaw out” emotionally”(Cloud Townsend,38). When reading this, a spark grew in my head. It was somewhat gratifying. I mean sounds logical but I never really practiced this boundary so it was something new for me.

Discussion by: tsaeteurn on Mon, 2016-05-23 23:50 with 0 comments

Zora Neale Hurston was a magnificent novelist and folklorist. She was one of the attractions of the Harlem Renaissance. Her novels were inspired by her childhood. She was born in Alabama and grew up in Florida specifically in Eatonville where it was historically one of the first black towns of the United States. This is where most of her stories like Their Eyes Were Watching God is based on. Her and her father John Hurston were not close because of his rejection towards her while accepting her older sister. Her mom Lucy Ann Hurston was a teacher. She had passed away in Zora’s early years.

Everybody has different ways of interpreting English. It is true that every region has its own sort of improper grammar and slang like “Broken English”. A specific type of this dialect that is commonly use today is “Ebonics” or “AAVE”(African American Vernacular English) . Rather than broken English Ebonics is American black English that is regarded as an actual language in it’s own right.

This image is about the poem called "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe. The main problem in the poem is that Poe can't cope with the loss of his loved one. This image is an advertisement for a service that will help his withdraws. The X-rays shows that Poe still has a heart. The raven is a symbol of of a good omen and refers to the poem. The writing just means that only time will truly mend the the heart aches. The books and the animal on the phone represents the activities you can do to keep you situated. And it is all overlaid with the symbol of peace.

Emotional Appeals in Public Health

Discussion by: tsaeteurn on Fri, 2016-04-08 22:04 with 0 comments

When talking about emotional appeals I certainly did not know what it was or what it referred to. So I went and search the term. Emotional appeal is a technique of persuasion designed to create an emotional response. Using this method is also known as pathos or suffering in Greek which is one of the three modes of persuasion identified by Aristotle. In public health or health in general they use emotional appeals in their campaigns to make people agree with them for example the tobacco-free campaign commercials.

Witch hunts still happen?

Discussion by: tsaeteurn on Fri, 2016-03-18 22:58 with 0 comments

Witch hunts are infamous throughout in history. A barrage of witch hunts happened around the time of the colonization of the “New World.” Most notably, the Salem Witch Trials which showed how much people were influenced. Surprisingly witch hunts still happen today. Now the modern-day witch hunts are not like what happened in the Salem Witch Trials. There is no mass lynching going on. But the effort to accuse and discover people due to powers whether it’s supernaturally or economically is still relevant.

Most Hmong refugees came to the United States during the Vietnam War. Through the International Rescue Committee (IRC) located in Oakland and other offices in the Bay Area, they provided camps in Thailand to start the huge resettlement. Nearly 195,000 Hmong refugees resettled during that time and most came to California. Before the initial move to the United States, they offer essentials like food, housing,practicing vocabulary and interviewing skills for job readiness.

My family's culture

Discussion by: tsaeteurn on Fri, 2016-02-12 22:45 with 3 comments

My family happened to be pretty cultural. Growing up I was in ceremonies and I remember every time we had one, it would seem that every mien person would be there. Being mien or more formal way of saying it “Iu Mien” our historical background it difficult. We originated in China to Vietnam. But because of reasons like socio-economics, we migrated to Laos and Thailand. We were also involved in the CIA’s “Secret War” (1955-1974) to prevent weapon smuggling into Vietnam during the Vietnam War. After that, many families were forced to seek refuge in neighboring countries like Thailand.

Without Women

Discussion by: tsaeteurn on Wed, 2016-01-06 19:58 with 6 comments

Women gave birth to us. Without them we wouldn’t be here today. To think of it there aren't as many women throughout history that we tribute to men. Furthermore we think everything is for men. Like superheroes or the word “mankind.” Why isn’t that women aren’t as credible as men? Well I asked some of my classmates there opinion?
