Reflection: Temple Grandin
Before watching the movie, I have never heard of it before. I never knew it existed. Temple Grandin is another inspiring movie that I have been glad to have watched. It deals with the autism of a woman and tells the inspiration true story of her.
Temple Grandin, a young autistic woman, is extraordinarily gifted. She has a remarkable connection to animals and a brilliant mind. This biopic follows Temple from her late teens -- as she struggles with both her own limitations and some narrow-mindedness in the communities around her -- to her startling first accomplishments. With the help of a supportive family and one progressive teacher, Temple tackles misconceptions about her condition, the sexism of mid-20th century America, and the rigid, insensitive methods of the cattle industry. Director Mick Jackson and his team use flashbacks, audacious visual effects, and the talents of Danes in the title role to bring the audience into Temple's world as she finds her calling as a game-changing scientist and as she ultimately learns to accept herself as a force of nature. Temple Grandin has outstanding performances, a commitment to telling an important and fascinating true story, and fine production values all around. It succeeds on every level and, at the same time, manages to avoid all the clichés, sentimentalism, and often quirky acting associated with many movies about autism and other mental challenges. he did not speak until age four and had difficulty right through high school, mostly in dealing with people. Her mother was very supportive as were some of her teachers. She is noted for creating her 'hug box', widely recognized today as a way of relieving stress in autistic children, and her humane design for the treatment of cattle in processing plants, which have been the subject of several books and won an award from PETA. Today, she is a…...

...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......

...Dr. Temple Grandin Dr. Temple Grandin is most likely the most famous autistic individual ever. She has overcome great obstacles from the time she was born and still works hard today to fit into the world. She is extremely intelligent and has a PhD in Animal Science. If it wasn’t for the support of her family and a few teachers, her success may have never happened due to her disability. Heredity and Environment Occasionally, a person’s developing psychology can be explained thru inherited genes or traits from parents or other relatives. Autism has shown some signs of heredity when both sides of a child’s family have autism in their history. However, in Temple Grandin’s case, there was not a known history of autism. There has been some speculation that autism is more likely to occur when the child’s parents are highly intelligent in the fields of math and science. Temple’s father was a real estate agent and her mother was a singer, and English Major from Harvard. While environmental factors have not been ruled out as a cause or contributing factor for autism, Temple, herself, has not decided if she believes there are environmental factors that contributed to her autism. However, she does believe that adding Omega 3 and special diets like gluten free can help some people or children with autism. Family and Social Support When Temple was a young toddler, her mother was concerned about her development and took her to a doctor. The doctor told Temple’s Mother...

Temple

...When Jesus died for mankind on the rugged cross, the temple veil was torn and from that moment God has given the world a very dramatic object lesson (Mat. 27:50). It was such a dramatic and unprecedented event that it is mentioned by not only Matthew, but Mark and Luke as well. “At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom” (Mat. 27:51). The veil proposed a barrier and suggested to those of the Old Testament who was not qualified, to stay away; “for you are not qualified to enter on your own accord into the presence of the one and only Holy God.” Of course this was no ordinary curtain, it is described in Exodus 26:31 as being “a curtain of blue, purples, and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen, with cherubims worked into it by a skilled craftsman.” It would not be possible for a curtain such as this to be torn by man hands, nor was it; only One could tear it in such a manner and that One was God. This meant that God had done what only He could do. Once the veil was torn we were provided access and privileges. “We have a confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body” (Heb. 10:19-20). As Christians we have the right to enter God’s presence independently from the High Priest; we can go to God directly. This is what Hebrews 10 is referring to; we are permitted to enter the throne room of heaven. Jesus made a way for us through the veil, by taking......

...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...

...What makes people different makes the world perfect. The definition of “different” is diverse due to different perspectives of people. We may sometimes regard this kind of “unique quality” as morbid. However, there are some examples to prove that people who are unique do have positive impacts because of their creativity, hypersensitivity, and uniqueness itself. Just like the blind have amazing audition, people who have the social phobia or autism may be exceedingly creative. The film Temple Grandin, directed by Mick Jackson, perfectly illustrates that a girl named Temple Grandin, who actually is an autistic person, grows with fear, doubt, and loneliness but overcomes her autism and achieves great scientific accomplishments. Temple could not speak until age four. When her mom takes her to the psychiatrist, Temple is diagnosed with autism. Instead of following the advice of the doctor, her mom insists on sending Temple to school, rather than an institution for special children. Temple never wants to be touched by any other people except herself, not even her mother. She is willing to spin or put herself in a narrow “squeeze machine”, which can make her calmed and satisfied. Temple’s mind works like pictures. She is a “visual thinker” who thinks and memorizes things like taking pictures. Temple’s life is not easy and happy. In the film, she is laughed at by her classmates and she is even regarded as a freak because she is weird and behaves differently. However, Temple’s high......

...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...

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...

Old Temple Research Paper (Art)

...Visual Analysis Essay Art Appreciation/ Art 129-03 November 14th, 2013 The Old Temple Hubert Robert Oil on Canvas 255 x 223.2 cm; 100 3/8 x 87 7/8” Art Institute Chicago The Old Temple Hubert Robert, an astounding artist who created a painting of which many could not aspire, known as, “The Old Temple,” created from 1787-1788, was the piece that I became so gratefully aware of on my trip to the Art Institute of Chicago. Although the entire institute is exquisite in form, the room that held not only one, but four of Hubert Robert’s massive paintings was my favorite. Immediately entering the room it becomes apparent that “The Old Temple” is the focal point, sitting at what many would call eye level, where the emphasis of the room rested so subtly on its shoulders. And big shoulders they were, with a height of 255 cm and a width that complemented at 223.2 cm. At this point, becoming even more relevant as the painting engulfed us further, was the size of the ever-beautiful frame. It suited the painting perfectly in which the value was effected. After this, noticing the elements of art was simple. The painting was made with oil on canvas, and truly helps with the variety of color. What is meant by this, is that it truly feels like the composition takes us to the time of development, however, reasons for this could be due to techniques used in the creation of the artwork. The most notable and visually appealing element to “The Old Temple,” was the use of linear...

...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......
