Reflection Paper about Supremo

Supremo is a Filipino movie which shows the Spanish era in the Philippines and how the Philippines fought for its independence. Andres Bonifacio was the main character of the movie because it focused on how the Katipunan, which was led by Bonifacio, formed and struggled to fight the Spanish military even though they were severely disadvantaged in terms of training and weaponry. The film also showed the devastation it left in the Philippines after the Filipino-Spanish war.

The film started started out by showing Andres Bonifacio’s wife dead and a brief introduction of his past. Afterwards, a small action happened while he was helping some of his fellowmen travel into the city since their house burnt down but they were harassed and attacked by the Spanish military for not bringing their cedulas. Just by seeing this, the film wants to show us how oppressive the Spanish military were and even if their excuse for not bringing their cedulas were valid, they took advantage of them by trying to search their items even when they said that they will just go back which led to bloodshed. I think they just want to express their dominance over the Filipinos and show us that they can do whatever they want to us. To support this idea, there was also a part where they publicly killed a Filipino after judging him guilty for trying to kill a military official and said that may it be a warning to all who would think of going against the government.

I really liked how they showed the suffering of the Filipinos and how they struggled to fight for freedom. The movie showed a point of view where we understood how the Filipinos thought and why they decided to form and join the Katipunan. They felt like they were being cornered and they had no other option but to fight back. It also portrayed how Bonifacio’s stuborness led to his downfall. The film…...

... have the anterograde amnesia like Lucy or not as severe. There are several herbs, vitamins, and supplements that may help boost memory and provide support for the brain. These work through various mechanisms: enhancing cerebral blood flow, increasing neurotransmitter levels, reducing free radicals, and restoring cell membrane fluidity. In the movie Lucy in the beginning is not receiving any treatment. Her family and friends kind of try and hide it from her and just let her still think it’s her father’s birthday from a year when she had the accident. As the movie prolongs though she receives some treatment from Sandler’s character Roth when he comes up a way to remind Lucy what she was going through. Roth makes a movie describing what has happened to her and how he has entered her life. In Lucy’s case the best therapy seemed to be the way Roth came up with the movie to remind her every day that she has anterograde amnesia. I think it helps her cope with reality and lets her know that she has to take everything day by day. I really feel bad for anyone who has to struggle going through anterograde amnesia. I couldn’t imagine waking up every day and thinking it was the same day, or not knowing what I did yesterday. Yes I know it’s just a movie but I think they did a great job portraying what someone with this type of amnesia has to go through every day. Before writing this paper I didn’t realize there were that many types of amnesias and the struggles the individual......

...Chapter 2- The Balance Sheet Reflection Paper The basic principles that being applied on a balance sheet could be applied in my place of work for the following: The Company where I currently work, my line of work, and my financial condition. Company where I currently work at – knowing the company’s total asset and total liability will help you better understand how the entity has the ability to meet its current obligation (Current Ratio). Another concept that could be applied on this would be the Going-Concern Concept and Cost Concept. Going-Concern in the sense that the company will continue to operate because of its ability to meet its current operation while Cost Concept for its ability to acquire other Assets (other entities, non-monetary assets). My line of work – one of the areas of my expertise as a test analyst is testing taxation application which involves financial transaction such as payment, billing, adjustments, waivers, penalties, interest, rates, refunds, etc. This financial transaction involves Double Entry because of the two effects of an accounting entry known as Debit (Dr) and Credit (Cr). For example, when a taxpayer files an income tax return and pays the incurred income tax, this transaction has two effects from the perspective of a Taxpayer and from the Tax Agency. The taxpayer cash balance would decrease because of the income tax that he/she would pay (Credit because of the decrease in asset) while for the tax agency the tax collection would...

...Reflection Paper 1. What do you think of when you think of the words power and influence? What sorts of associations and attitudes do these terms evoke? When thinking about the word power, the first thing came into my mind is the ability to make thing happen and influence people by the capability or authority you have. For my understanding, the influence is ability to take advantage of the power you have to affect people’s thoughts and behaviors, and, ultimately, admit your ideas and follow your directions. The power and influence seems very strong, and controllable words, but actually, for my understanding, the power and influence need to be take advantage carefully and softly deal with the relationship with others. 2. How powerful and influential do you feel? Why? In the daily time, I am not quite powerful because I am always rather to play the roles of follower than a leader, and I am not aggressive enough to fight for power when there is an opportunity. However, to an extent, I can influence people well. I can communicate with people well and express my opinions in a proper way. People are easily accept my ideas and influenced by my personality. 3. What do you think are barriers (if anything) to your acquiring and exercising more power and influence? The interpersonal skill is one of the most barriers to my acquiring and exercising more power and influence. When acquiring power and exercising the influence, the interpersonal skill is a significant...

...Running Head: REFELECTION PAPER Reflection Paper NUR3805 Professor OrNah 11/09/2014 Reflection Paper Why do you think it is important for the nurse at the bedside that nursing is recognized as a discipline? The nursing profession is made up of several different subspecialties and career paths, which have developed a positive view on the nursing career. Marilyn Parker discusses how a discipline must have a clearly defined domain, which expresses the theory and focus of the profession. The traditional nurse is responsible for a wide array of roles such as: educator, advocate, counselor, and caregiver. The world’s view of the nursing profession is a well-distinguished career field. “The discipline of nursing is a community of scholars, including nurses in all venues, where nursing occurs.”(Parker, 2003, p. 8) I think it is important for the nurse at the bedside that nursing is recognized as a discipline because for centuries nurse theorist and other nurses have contributed to the success of the career. If I was asked what the normal blood flow through the heart is, I could easily consult my memory, my anatomy textbook, or search for the answer online. Thus, I know for certain that there is only one correct answer. Many questions that arise during bedside patient care are indeed science related and often have only one correct answer. On the other hand, during patient care there are several...

...Upside Down In this movie, it explains that people from “Down-Under” cannot go to the world that’s above their own world. Adam, from the lower world, fell in love to Eden, from the upper world. Adam met Eden when he was nears the clouds, just mere meters from the upper world. Eden, being faithful to Adam, meets up with him several times. Adam tried to bring Eden “up” to his own world. He threw a rope to bring it “down to Eden. There came a time when they were chased down by policemen because their relationship was illegal. When Eden was escaping “Down-Under”, Adam was shot and had let go of the rope. Losing control with gravity, Eden fell “up” from the lower world. She landed hard back on the upper world that had caused a concussion and partial amnesia. Many years had passed and Adam had a chance to meet Eden. He applied to Eden’s office and was accepted because of his revolutionary age-defying cream. Then, he seized his opportunity and met Eden again, who had forgotten all their memories. Long story short, they lived a “happily ever after” kind of life. There’s this one substance that defies the law of gravity of the two worlds. The pink bee’s powder. I don’t know how or why, but when it’s on the lower world, it stays on the lower world. But when you bring it up to the upper world, it stays on the upper world. It is not pulled back “up” to the down world. There is only one thing that I would like to say and that is, “LOVE IS ACTUALLY NOT STRONGER THAN GRAVITY.” The mere......

We chose this topic because, as students, we found how different students study in different styles interesting. We wanted to dive into the more specific details of these students study habits and work ethics. From studying early in the morning to reading various text books late at night, we though this could probably be caused by how they were raised and the environment they grew up in, especially regarding their parents’ treatment toward these students. Initially, we got major information we could use for our research during class. It was found that children behaved and grow up depending on how they were treated at home, after all, most of our lives start at home. Children with authoritarian parents, which entail parents who are very strict and implement rules just because they are the parent, tend to be rebellious and aggressive. Children with authoritative parents, or parents who stand in the center of strict control and leniency, tend to be obedient...

Reflection on Movie Teachers Diary

...Reflection: Teacher’s Dairy One of the things that a future teacher should keep in mind is that “Teacher should never stop learning”. It will always retain in my mind since the day he became my professor. Watching movies, reading books as well the techniques he is doing in the class will retain in my mind. This is where I started getting out of my box. He wanted her students to get out their box. Explore beyond limits. I believe that this is his strategies and techniques. Teachers Diary was the title of the film because the story revolves about the diary of Ana who happens to be a previous teacher in a rural area in Thailand where the school is located in the middle of river where there is no electricity, no internet, as well as cell phone signal. This Diary becomes an inspiration to the present teacher “Teacher Song” all the physical difficulties and yet again facing loneliness, a loneliness that is outlined by what becomes the symbol of the two main characters, with Teacher Song finding Ann’s diary and immediately identifying himself in her, with all the troubles, all the challenges that had to be faced in order to survive. The universal truth about teaching was explained here in this movie that though we are now in the 21st century there are some places that were not noticed to have a better way of education. Living in rural areas was also a big challenge when building a better education both for the people who lived here and for the teachers that will adjust...

...Week 6 Reflection Paper This course has changed my entire outlook on marketing, first I didn’t think I would gain any insight and to be totally honest I didn’t know how marketing would tide into healthcare administration. Prior to taking this course I thought marketing only consisted of advertising but there’s a lot that go into marketing. Marketing is more than just selling and advertising, and it actually affect all aspect of my daily life. When it comes to making choices about where to shop, how much I am willing to pay for goods and services can all be related to marketing. Marketing help organizations to understand what it takes to keep up with the rapid changing trends and allow them to keep up with what the customer needs are and how to satisfy those needs, (Perreault, Cannon, & McCarthy, 2008). We went over a lot during this six week course, and I have new found respect for marketers. I didn’t realize just how all this tide into my over course structure. Marketing is critical part of any successful business. Take a look at some of the most successful business in the world and you find that marketing is the heart of the business. I gain some much more than I expected from this class. There were a number of things that stood out for me during this course, such as how important it is to have a marketing strategy, and understanding your weakness, strengths, opportunities, and treats. I will definitely take a lot away from this class and it will be integrated in my......

...REFLECTION PAPER Define Peace? It is a question that came out from my mind, and also was asked by our speaker during the advocacy. Peace is the absence of war and freedom from quarrels and disagreement or the presence of harmonious relations. In our own selves, we could experience this if we have a peace of mind. By the moment, I realized that I’ve been worrying about so many things that my mind couldn’t relax. I forgot to find time to meditate and forget all my problems and undone works. I should give justice to my body and find a time to rest. Another thing I thought of was the death of my co-Angelenean, who was murdered and still not given justice. Evil is everywhere and could attack us anytime, so we should always be wary and ask for God’s guidance and to protect us. Love could bring peace. If everyone has love in their hearts it could overcome hatred and would prevent any arguments, quarrels or worst. If we have love we could also forgive and forget what others have done wrong to us, reconcile and it could cause us a peace of mind. Justice, as what our speaker said, is giving what is due to others, while love is giving beyond what is due to others. Like our parents, who would always accept us and give us everything beyond what we needed for they want to make us happy, and that’s because of love. Now, not all people have love in their heart for not everyone fears God. That’s the reason why crime is everywhere and unfortunately, one of our......

Movie Reflection

...The Rainmaker Extra Credit Paper From the first couple minutes of the film I was shocked at how illegally both the defendant and plaintiff lawyers would act. They would cross the line so many times, trying to twist the truth to make their side of the story sound better than the others. It began to seem like both sides eventually convinced themselves that they were right. In midst of all the conniving that was going on, I was a fan of the way Rudy (Matt Damon) acted by following the rules in order to win his case. Although there was still lying done on their side (mainly just to throw off their opponent lawyers and cause them to believe something happened when it really didn’t) Rudy was never the one to actually commit the act. He would always stay true to the case while forming meaningful connections with his clients. I liked how Rudy would stay true to his word when he spoke to his clients, which is why he was probably so successful in his first case. I previously had imagined the legal system ran in a similar way, but this assumption was based off shows that are much more unrealistic. The movie strengthened the picture I had forming in my head how lawyers don’t like to play by the rules. It proved that they would try to hide evidence from the opposing side that would be perfectly fair to present in court, even going to the extent to shifting around witnesses. In addition to the illegal acts of the lawyers, the movie confirmed the imagine I had of an active courtroom......

Movie Reflection

...Extra Credit: Electric Shadows Reflection The film makes me recall my childhood and my parents’ childhood. It descried a story in a town of Northwest China happened between 1970s and 1980s. At that time, people could only watch the outdoor movie that cemented by celluloid. This film covers the family love, romantic love between two generations and friendship. Also, it gives me a strong feeling of how the Chinese cultural revolution have changed the people’s lives and ideas. From what I learned from the “brief history of China” and Spence’s “the search for modern China”, Mao wanted and desired equal outcomes for all people. Even though the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution caused millions deaths, and it was a miserable failure; it brought fundamental changes to China such as family structure, rural people’s immigration, landscape and so on (Spence & “Brief Story of China”). As shown in the film, the first obvious change is technology. During the Ling Ling’s mother wedding day, there was a small black-white TV as a wedding gift. Everybody were interested in the TV because it was the first time they saw a TV. Later on, the stage of playing celluloid movie was destroyed because everybody were start watching movies at home (Xiao). I felt sad when I saw the scene. I remembered I saw the outdoor celluloid movie when I was young. Me and other kids came very early and sat on the first row. Even though the comfortable chairs were provided, we had no worries of...

John Q Movie Reflection Paper

...Another movie based on the inhumane effects of our privatized health care system. I was not expecting the type of movie that it was, especially what John decides to do in order to save his son’s life. By now, I have seen two movies on the healthcare system that have truly amazed me and have left me with powerful messages about what we don’t see daily within our so-called expensive health care system. This movie reminded me of the struggles that those within poorer communities suffer from: lack of healthcare coverage. In comparison, to Patch Adams this movie had a much more dramatic effect to capture the battle between loved ones and saving lives. Furthermore, it captures every part of what actual society would go through if their loved ones were denied entry into a list for heart transplants. I think that this movie serves as another reminder of what we still need to improve in our health care. But see I feel that it’s not only our health care that needs fixing but those within it seem to lack of compassion for families of this sort, who cannot pay for their medical expenses. This movie portrays the most frustrating issue that I’ve seen up to this point in several health care movies and that is the inhumane and materialistic ways that doctors handle their medical attention. I think that this really gives me a new outlet on part of why a nationalized health care is not being considered by the AMA (American Medical Association); these doctors just want their money. These...
