What style of music do I most identify with…I would have to say that it is Salsa. Being Hispanic and growing up in a Hispanic household, that is all that was heard on the weekend and at family gatherings. I think back to my childhood, and I can see my mother, as clear as day, cleaning while listening to Willie Chirino and dancing a bit whenever she thought we were not looking. As a teenager when I heard Salsa, the first thing that popped in my head was “this is old people music…Can someone please put on some Power 96 or something”, now I find myself actively searching radio stations looking for those same songs I heard as a child. There is nothing like some good old Celia Cruz or Frankie Ruiz to get your fingers tapping and instantly put you in a good mood. I really I can’t pinpoint when I first heard this style of music, as it has been around me all my life. If I have to give you a reason as to why I feel this style of music identifies me, well I guess it would be because it reminds me of all the good times I shared with my family and loved ones. This style of music makes me feel nostalgic, happy and proud to be a Hispanic. It’s evident to anyone around me, including the cars next to me while I am stuck in traffic, when I hear that music on the radio, my hands come to life and I feel like I have no control…it’s like they think they are part of the band. To summarize my style of music is without a doubt Salsa. If I had to pick a favorite Salsa signer, needless to say, I would have to pick Willie Chirino.…...

Class Differences

...Topic 1 – Explaining class differences On popular explanation of class differences in achievement is that better-off parents can afford to send their children to private schools, which many believe provide a higher standard of education. For example, average class sizes are less than half those in state schools. External Factors Cultural deprivation – Theorists argue that most of us acquire the basic values, attitudes and skills that are needed to educational success through the primary socialisation of the family. The basic ‘cultural equipment’ includes things such as language, self-discipline and reasoning skills. They believe many working-class families fail to socialise their children adequately. There are three main aspects of cultural deprivation: Intellectual development, Language, Attitudes & values Intellectual development –This refers to the development of thinking and reasoning skills such as the ability to solve problems and use ideas and concepts. Cultural deprivation theorists argue that many working-class homes lack the books, educational toys and activities that would stimulate a child’s intellectual development. Douglas (1964) found that working-class pupils scored lower on tests of ability than middle-class pupils. Bernstein (1967) found out that middle-class mothers are more likely to choose toys that encourage thinking and reasoning skills and prepare children for school. Language – Bernstein (1975) identifies differences between working-class...

Class Expectations

...Nicole Raridon ENG0900 August 29, 2012 Taking this class makes me nervous and excited all at the same time. I am excited to learn new ways of writing that I didn’t know before and to become an overall better writer, and relearn techniques of writing a good essay that I learned a few years ago in school. On the other hand I am nervous to think that I may not give it my all and I will bomb this class, but I know that with the right help and direction from my teacher that I will be guided to the next step in achieving my goals. During this class I expect to be given homework to challenge and help me become the better writer I want and need to be, while I hope it’s an assignment that’s easy to understand I don’t mind a little challenge now and again. I am going to have a lot of questions about most things we discuss in class so I expect myself to ask questions if I don’t understand and I know you will do your best to help me understand. I will need my teacher to correct any mistakes I have made and make sure I fully understand where I went wrong and get me back on the right track. Constructive criticism makes me want to work harder and better my work, that will really help me keep my head in the game for this course. I expect to do my best and give it everything I have to get good grades but I strive to at least have average grades. My Favorite teacher is Mrs. Parisot my Graphic Communications teacher at Lp High School. She has encouraged me to do things I never...

Missing Class

...Attendance should not be Mandatory A matter that has been recently debated among my peers in WVU is the issue of an attendance policy that requires all students to attend classes. I personally think that there are advantages that come with this policy. However, I believe that it would have a more negative effect on the students. I also think that many students can still do fine without with out being forced to attend class regularly and professors should find different means to encourage students to come to class. Many people consider University years to be the golden years of their lives. A college student grows from an adolescent to a mature adult during these years. Students grow by making all their own decisions, whether good or bad. One of the many decisions a student makes is the choice of whether to go to class or not. I do not think the University should make the decision for the student. Every student has a unique method of studying and revising for tests and exams. In this day and age, technology has improved our lives in ways nobody could have imagined, an example of this is that many professors post their notes online for all their students to see. Many students need only their textbooks to take an exam, so for most classes a student can do just fine without attending class regularly. Michael Villagrana, a student in my class states, “I feel that if you're able to attain a respectable grade without a perfect attendance, then you shouldn't......

...When you hear the word “Class” what do you think of? When I hear that word depending on how it is being used I think of it mainly in two different aspects. The first way I think of it is in the sense of a class room setting. For example “I have to go to class”. The Other form that I think about is when it is being used to describe certain types of people. For example “There goes the wealthy class of people”. As anyone would do I decided to look up the word class and see how many different meanings the word class may have. When I looked it up I found that it had more meanings than just a class you can attend or a particular group of people. The word class can be used to describe a division. For example “ Cindy played baseball in class A for 4 years and then she finally made it to the pros.” Another way the word class can be used is to describe a year. For example :” Johnny graduated in the class of 2005”. You can also use class to describe two different things. Example “There are two different classes of detergent high efficiency and oxy.” The last definition that interest me was that you could use the word class to describe someone elegance in dress and behavior. For example “ She carries herself with a lot of class.” As I went through all the definitions I noticed that I do use the word “class” in those aspect but never really paid attention. I sat down and thought of why would those definitions come to mind when I thought of the word and I came to the...

... more likely to be in and succeed in a Physics and Astronomy club than girls because it is math/science oriented. The writer should have 3 boys and 3 girls listed or leave out names and list the students by letters in the problem to create balance. The question could also be considered to have elitism since the club is buying expensive items considered to be luxuries. The students could see who could find the items to make a homemade telescope the cheapest. Third bias involves ethnic bias because it does not list a Hispanic or Asian name. The write could fix it by including one such name. 3. A teacher needs help carrying a class set of textbooks to the department office. The teacher asks five students to carry the 35 books.

Ideal Class

...When one is requested to describe their “ideal class,” of course, the essential objects come to mind. These include: supplies, books, desks, computers, etc. If there is more thought put into the question asked, one may realize that there is a lot more than just physical objects that fill up the space in the classroom. The minds of students and teachers are keys to the environment. Any student may say that they have not enjoyed one given class due to their opinion of the teacher. It is very important for the teacher to understand and respect the students, if they are expecting the students to understand and respect them. The teacher also needs to respect their position of being given the role of teaching their future inhabitants of this country. It is also imperative for the teacher to be well-educated as well as well-organized. Not many students enjoy being taught by someone who is learning as they are teaching along with having their work being lost. Just like students request certain qualities for a teacher to obtain, teachers do the same. It takes attention, respect, and hard work to make up a good student. Without attention, the student would not have such an easy time succeeding. If respect is given by the student, it should be earned back from his fellow peers as well as his teacher. Hard work should come with every student who’s trying to succeed. Although these qualities should be found in every student, they are actually not that easy to come by. Of...

...Sharish Hussain Cauley English 1102 3 March 2014 Reading Evaluation 3 – “Class” The main argument of this reading is identifiable and can easily be summarized in one or two sentences. The title and the opening few paragraphs really give away the thesis of the entire piece. The author chooses to start by diving right into his topic in the introduction. He concludes by reiterating his main point, and places a rhetorical question as the very last sentence. This is effective in this piece because it leaves the reader pondering back upon what he/she just read. The writer does provide evidence throughout the reading to support his thesis. He uses quotes from reporters and from books to back himself up. These sources do a good job at supporting his argument. They are valid and credible sources so it makes his argument stronger. He does address the opposing views by indicating why their argument is wrong however, he goes on ranting more about why he is right and not too far into details about why the opposition is in the wrong. The audience intended for this writing is most likely for a general audience because it is a topic that relates to all people of society. Perhaps the author wanted to particularly capture the attention of government officials as well as school officials as his writing is directed towards them at some specific points. The author’s credibility is strong. There is background information provided on his behalf before the introduction paragraph so the......

The material on conversion of E-R diagrams to tables in the book is rather brief in some places, the book slides provide better coverage of details that have been left implicit in the book. 7 8 Chapter 2 Entity Relationship Model Changes from 3rd edition: In the fourth edition we have updated several examples, including ternary relations (employee, branch, job instead of customer, loan, branch) and aggregation (manages instead of loan-officer), to make them more realistic. We have also added more examples, for instance for specialization we use person, customer and employee as the main example, instead of account, checking-account and savings-account, which also makes the example more realistic. We have replaced the US centric social-security by the more global (and more realistic) customer-id and employee-id. We have added notation to make disjointedness constraints and total participation explicit (overlapping and partial participation are the default). We have introduced alternative E-R notations since many real world applications use alternative notations. We have also provided a brief introduction to UML class diagrams, which are being used increasingly in place of E-R diagrams, in tools such as Oracle designer. We have dropped coverage of existence dependencies since total participation constraints provide a very similar constraint. The distinction......

Class Matters

...Andrew Maddox Professor Stacy Schmauss ANT 210 10/18/2012 Class Matters A class is defined as "A combination of income, education, wealth and occupation." (Ember, Ember, and Peregrine 315) Social status or economic class has shaped society since the beginning of man. Whether it is money, power, or strength, certain people are put into classes that gain them respect. Especially during this time of year when the election is going on, we hear class mentioned all the time. The upper class is the wealthier people in America, the middle class is what can be described as your "Average Joe", and the lower class are those that are struggling to provide for themselves. Class can affect things such as getting jobs, what kind of women or men you will attract, and how you are treated. Whether people want to believe it or not, class is a huge part of how we view people and it always will be. The New York Times came out with a special study about economic class. According to them, "class influences destiny in a society that likes to think of itself as a land of unbounded opportunity." (Scott, and Leonhardt) The article states that class is a powerful force in the life of Americans and places a huge role in shaping us today. Things such as your family name, education, and ethnicity all play huge rolls what class you fall into. In my personal opinion, I would have to say that the article hits the nail right on the head. Class is a widely debated topic and the people in each class...

...Mike Rose had no skills by the time he finished his vocational education, this was because the teachers were incompetent and most of the time unprepared. “Rose was enrolled in this school, which was a bottom level school by mistake (Rose 141).”The educational system is partially to blame, according to Mike Rose. Many learners will pass through high school having undergone negative elements such as fear, frustration and boredom. Mike Rose did not escape the sour side of the educational system. Rose hadn’t stayed in school for more than two months before getting a blow on his face and having his glasses broken by the English teacher who he referred to as being troubled. This was one way fear was instilled in the students' mind. During the Spanish class with the new tutor, Mr. Montez, he was not able to settle the dispute between Billy and Dweetz which ended up into a fight in the classroom. The physical exercise teacher also had a negative impact in his life. He would make students touch their ankles and spunk them to make men out of them. Therefore, this paper will try and prove that Anyon is right when he says that schools socio-economic class determines the type of instructions students receive. When you have a poor educational system, then the future generation will be poorly equipped with skills. The only way out is to get exceptional teachers who can teach students on how to make hypotheses which is one of the key requirement to survive in any job. On the other hand...

...Unit 7 Discussion Of the qualities commonly associated with emotional intelligence, which ones do you most relates to as being a strength of yours? Provide a specific example that applies in work setting. Emotional Intelligence, is the ability to recognize feelings, to judge which feelings are appropriate in which situations, and communicate these feeling effectively. (Woods, J. 2013 pg. 168). The quality of strength for me that relates to emotional intelligences would be dealing with emotions without being overcome by them. In the workplace, often times, I can evaluate individuals emotions, silence communication, gestures. Example: My previous position held some time ago was, Charge Processor and outside work I attend school every Saturday, for one year. Upon completion of my coding class, I pursued a position as an Outpatient Coder. In addition, my pay was increased. However, my best friend still worked in the previous office, where I transferred from. Two weeks after, I noticed that she stopped communicating with me. I began to evaluate the situation based on her emotions, and feelings to her perception to why she stop communicating. However, by channeling my feelings to continue conquering, and achieve my goals effectively. This had enhance my ability to understand how other feel without spelling it out.
