Something that really fascinated me on our field trip was that we got to witness history of Victoria and British Columbia. It was really fascinating that we got to see firsthand on what happened back in those times. I enjoyed looking over the island where the Chinese were held, you could feel the sensation through the air and it was very emotional. I also really enjoyed going on that tour inside the castle, it was really interesting on how the rooms were laid out and what people even wore. It was a great and eye opening experience. I think for me that changed my entire outlook on the trip was about the story of Reena Virk, and how racism and bullying go a long way. Another turning point was the grave stones of the Chinese workers and how finally they got a chance to be remembered. That was also really eye opening because everyone should be remembered and not just by the color of their skin. Overall this field trip was extremely long but worth the wait. Professor Green did an amazing job on all the explanations he gave and the great detail. Without him, I don’t think the trip would have been as good. The only thing I didn’t like about the field trip was there was no mixture of cohorts, and I thought that was one of the main things this field trip intended to do, was to make everyone a closer family. It was disappointing but it was a great experience. In conclusion, I want to thank everyone who participated and all those that made it happen. Also a big thank you to Dr. Motherwell for letting us all share the experience together. It was a well-planned out trip and I wish I could do it all over again.

Midterm Review

...was saved, however, he was diagnosed with uremia, which surely caused by the physical contractions between the toxic drug chemicals and my son’s body, according to the doctor. The medical payment for my son is extremely high, so, I have to find some other way to make more money. Normally, people like me in Mexico have two ways to make more money. One is the easier way by dealing with drug; another is the harder way by crossing the US boarder to chasing dream in America. I hate drugs, so, there would be only one option for me. Trip to US Making a decision is hard, especially for this kind. But, like I said, I don’t have any choices. I have to go for myself, my child and my whole families. In Mexico, there are many travel agencies which offer “special service” to help the travelers cross the border. After comparing services and doing some researchers, I finally chose one agency and paid them 3,500 peso one-time fees. The agent promised me that the trip will be easy and safe; however, it came out with a nightmare. I left my home on the...

Term 1

...My variety of different experiences will help me contribute to the diversity in the Physical Therapy Program.  One of my experiences that really stand apart from others is my participation in a mission trip to Honduras.  I joined students from the University of Connecticut Health School to provide free healthcare to inhabitants of small villages and cities in the area.  The trip taught me the importance of providing healthcare to poverty stricken areas and the effect it can have on the communities. The experience also really cemented the importance of being tolerant of different cultures and areas of the world. You need to be truly passionate about providing a better life for the people that come from less fortunate circumstances, but also understanding of their ways of life. If you are doing something just because you think it looks good and would benefit yourself; your goals become very transparent and those you are helping can tell right away you aren’t really there for them. There was no greater feeling then seeing the smile on the children’s faces while we worked with them to get them better or the clear look of thankfulness on the people who will never take what we provided them for granted.  I would love to have the opportunity to provide physical therapy to similar areas of need, which I can successfully contribute to the program at MGH IHP.             I have also had different experiences relating directly to the field that have all been quite diverse.  My......

The House of Hope

...time that I have applied leadership and an immense amount of communication is when my family and I head down to Mexico on a missions trip. Once a year we pack our bags and head across borders driving a total of 16 hours, going into the heart of Mexico we drive through Chihuahua City arriving at a little town called Anahuac. Inside Anahuac is an orphanage called “Casa de la Esperanza,” it is filled with laughter and a second chance for kids who never got the attention and love they deserved. This orphanage has roughly 40-70 kids a year ranging in size, age, and backgrounds you would never wish on anyone. Hearing some of these children’s stories and where they came from would never reflect on who they were on the inside, all these kids want is love and friendship and they would quickly give it back. The very first time we arrived at Casa a lot was going through my mind, since this was a new experience that was out of my comfort zone. I felt times like these really help expand and push limits of leadership and communication that benefit and support a community in need. Casa is truly an amazing place that focuses their vision not on themselves but on the neighboring community, they supply and conduct food drives, medical exams and taking care of whatever else needs to be done in the town of Anahuac. After hearing what was expected of us in this trip I knew I was going to thrive and truly help make a difference. Casa takes in these children...

So Much Water so Close to Home

At this river Stuart and some of his friends, is out for a real man trip. They are fishing, drinking and doing all, of such things men does on a trip like this. In the middle of this trip, one of the men finds a dead body of a girl, in the river. They do not call the police, because they will not ruin the trip. So they decide to call the police after the trip when they was about to go home. Stuart comes home and telling this story to Claire, and that’s really where the story takes start and the action first begins. Shortly after this we can see, that the real action, is about, Stuart and Claire’s relationship, and how Claire is. The settings in the start are at a river, miles away from Stuart’s home. It’s not described very well, but I have an imagination, at how this place the men is at, is a normally place in a forest near a river. Maybe there is a bonfire place, with some stones around it, and they are sitting there in a circle. Otherwise the story takes place several different locations, there isn’t described very much in this short story. A characterization of Claire: In the text, it appears that Claire is mentally ill. It is only, if you read the whole story, it makes......

Long Family Road Trip

...Adventures of a Long Road Trip Back in the Fall of 2006, my wife and I decided to take the kids to Disneyland. We left on our trip in the cool darkness of the early morning. As we drove down the road, my wife started wondering if we forgot anything. We were about four blocks away from the house when she yelled out a few choice words, then said,’ We forgot the package from the travel agent!" I turned around immediately and went in and grabbed it. As we got to about the same spot, she remembered another thing we had forgotten. This happened about three times. That should have told me right there that this was going to be a trip for the ages. The trip all the way to Disneyland went off without a hitch. So we ventured on down to San Diego to go to Sea World. As we got closer to San Diego and driving down I-5 doing about 80 mph so we could just keep up with traffic, I thought I heard something on the roof of our Ford Expedition, where our travel bag was in a net and strapped down. When all of a sudden something in the rearview mirror caught my eye. I hollered a few choice words and said " There goes our travel bag!" It went flying in the air like a dead body falling from the sky. It landed in the third lane of southbound I-5. I pulled over to the side of the freeway, and got out to see how I was going to get it back. Luckily traffic was sort of light and it didn't hit or land on anybody's vehicle. My wife called 9-1-1 and a State Patrol officer showed up not too long......

It is usual sunny day when we were about to leaving our busy and noisy city and get to the long road that are passing through the high and huge mountains of Turkmen Kopetdag. People went to the mountains on vacation for two reasons: to have fun and enjoy the view. We wanted to enjoy both of them. But first we agreed to go to Lake Archman. And while we were on the way to lake, my teacher said: “Listen! Now we are on the way to the Archman, and I want to you not to sleep in order to enjoy the beauty of nature.” And some of us really didn’t sleep after her advice, trying to get a real pleasure from staring at the grand mountains.

Poverty in Haiti

...traveling to help others has to be a true passion in life. I have vacationed outside the country once and it was a trip to Haiti. I rather travel to another country for relief work, than just to vacation. During my process of traveling I figured that you can’t be traveling to help others because you feel sorry. You must truly love to help others in life. My name is Stephen Gordon and I just completed my first year at Upper Iowa University with a Business Administration major. I am from Altgeld Gardens, which is located on the far south side in Chicago, Illinois. Atlgeld Gardens was named after Illinois Governor John Altgeld. It was established in 1945 and it’s an historic site. Altgeld Gardens is the first public housing projects built in the United States of America and was also an important stop on the Underground Railroad. Altgeld is completely occupied by low income families. The residents of Altgeld Gardens have little education and live off public aid and SSI. Most people love living off the money the government provides. The typical household in Altgeld Gardens is a single mom raising at least four children average, if not more. Most families in Altgeld Gardens struggle to survive from time to time. However, it’s an obstacle that we have to overcome as a community. When I first laid my eyes on the flyer for this Haiti trip I decided I was going. I knew the trip would be expensive, but I told myself I would find the funds. I have never been out of the country,......

Project Mangement Ii

...the development costs are incurred at the end of year zero and each product has a three-year life. Since the six projects require a total of 13,025 development hours and only 10,000 hours are available, one or more projects will need to be postponed or eliminated from further consideration. If we start with the project with the highest NPV, the Browser project would be selected first requiring 1,875 hours of development time. Next, the Trip Planner would be selected requiring an additional 6,250 hours of development time. The project with the next highest NPV is the Spreadsheet project. However, this project requires 2,500 hours and only 1,875 hours are available after selecting the Browser and Trip Planner projects. The project with the next highest NPV is the Calendar/Email project which requires 1,250 hours of development time leaving 625 hours available. Of the remaining projects, the Portfolio Tracker requires too many hours while the Expense Report project can be completed with the hours available. Thus, Browser, Trip Planner, Calendar/Email, and the Expense Report projects would be selected based on the NPV approach. 2.

Budgeting Informative Essay

...Parker 1 Cynthia Parker November 11, 2015 After deciding to take a vacation, one must narrow down the possible vacation spots. Two destinations that interest me are Branson, Missouri and Cozumel, Mexico. Both destinations have a variety of activities for me to enjoy while vacationing, but the expenses are quite a bit different. Cozumel will cost more, but I believe I will enjoy the Caribbean cruise more than I will enjoy relaxing in the mountains of Branson. Choosing a vacation getaway can be stressful but exciting. Even on a budget, it is simple to plan an affordable vacation. Two places I would like to vacation at are the mountains of Branson, Missouri and a Caribbean cruise to Cozumel, Mexico. In Branson, there are almost limitless attractions to enjoy. While relaxing in a cozy cabin in the mountains, I could enjoy the peace and quiet nature with beautiful scenery, or I could visit some of the attractions around the area. There is a cabin called the, "Beary Cozy" cabin, and it has one bedroom and one and a half bath. It comes with a fully equipped kitchen and living area making it feel like a home away from home ( The cabin has a romantic fireplace in the living area, perfect for a relaxing, romantic getaway. There are many attractions to choose from, most of which are affordable for someone vacationing on a budget.

...that could be used on society or other sciences that are much less dangerous—to do it. That’s right; despite the fact that supposedly space exploration prices are at an “all-time low” right now, financially, what does that really look like? Picture the Hoover Dam between Nevada and Arizona, a structure of pure concrete 726 feet tall. Now picture eight-hundred of them. That’s the cost of a space exploration trip to Mars at the moment. To afford this kind of exploration would require the cutting of health-care benefits, education spending, or tax raising. In the end, many of those that never asked for this trip to be done would be paying for it. It almost makes more sense to just put all the money you own in a rocket and send it up in space to see what would happen—that’s basically what we would be doing anyways. With current technology and prices, a trip just doesn’t make sense right now. That isn’t to say that it isn’t possible in the future! After a few years or a decade or so, more research would have been done and new launch systems developed that would make the trip much more reliable and affordable. More research would be done on Mars, and it’s even possible NASA would find...
