“Examining Race & Racism in the University: A Class Project” somewhat focuses on descriptions of observations and experiments, and Vess gives reasons as to why she chose to do this or why she chose to do that, such as when she tells the reader that “When I made decisions without students, I did my best to explain my decisions and obtain their buy-in” (4). Throughout the duration of the article, Vess uses colorful language, and is descriptive and personal. The article presents itself as somewhat of a personal narrative of the experiment. Vess describes her feelings towards certain aspects of the experiment, for example: “Listening to other people’s stories made me feel better about my own. I’m sure it was a relief for some of our interviewees to get those stories off their chests and I’m glad we gave them a chance to” (5).
My senior year, my AP biology teacher recommended me for an internship with WISE (women in science and engineering). I was the only student from my school to be accepted and I was placed in the chemical and biomolecular engineering department at Johns Hopkins. I worked with a PhD student with the ultimate goal of creating signals that indicated cells specific behaviors depending on their location by developing patterns with DNA. To do this, I tested different reactions in a spectrofluorometer to measure the fluorescence emitted by each sample. This hands-on experience fascinated me and helped me realize that I am truly passionate about laboratory
In The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Skloot tells the story of the Lacks family and explains the development of HeLa cells and their use in scientific research. While her writing style is efficient and informative when discussing science, she is still able to engage readers through relatable imagery. When describing the issue of contamination in the lab, Skloot describes HeLa cells as they “could float through the air on dust particles” or “ride from lab to lab on researcher’s coats” (Skloot 153). Her use of personification leads one to see the cells as having a mind of their own. While the book is centered on the phenomenon of HeLa cells,
When it comes to wartimes at colleges, reflections from alumni often help one understand how real the changes that took place at universities actually were for those involved. In their book, “Hope at the crossroads: The War Years”, Nordstrom and Zuidema go into the depth of personal experiences to understand what it was like to live, work, worship, and study at Hope College during and immediately after World War II (WWII). When it came to life on campus, many things changed. Sororities became places for the girls to knit and sew for the Red Cross, programs were made to allow students to graduate a year quicker, and intercollegiate sports, including The Pull, were ended during these times in the 1942-1943 school year. Working on campus, at least
Each new class I sign up for brings with it enthusiasm of learning something new. I am provided a chance to not only learn a new subject but meet new classmates. Russell describes Sister Maria slapping a name tag on one of the girls with her name and then goes on to say, “The rest of the pack ran in a loose, uncertain circle, torn between our instinct to help her and our new fear. We sensed some subtler danger afoot, written in a language we didn’t understand” (np). This reminds me of each time I
In this essay I will touch on what intrigues me about Alison Bechdel’s creative and powerful art in Fun Home. Specifically this essay will look at a couple of pages that include her most interesting panels in the whole book. I compare the panels to others and discuss the feelings I have toward her choice of drawings and dialogue. By looking closely at and analyzing her artwork, I will show how Bechdel arouses curiosity with only two pages. First I will discuss a few panels on pages 220 and 221 that include Alison talking to her father after she has returned from college.
A few years back they decided to involve random students in the Health Community. We wanted to do more however and opened the group up to any student that would listen. We design topics that range between good nutrient and daily exercise to sexual transmitted disease and mental illness. We would ask students what health topics they wanted to learn more about then go design-interesting programs were students could learn more about those topics. Having an in-school clinic also helped because we could see what areas our peers needed the most help in and get advise from professionals actually working in the field.
I have been in the medical field for many years and have decided to take advantage and pursue my degree in nursing. I worked in Emergency Department as EMT because I like to work at a fast pace environment and meet different people every day. I want to be able to help people when they are in need of an emergency, and I want to help save people’s lives and make a difference in this world. My spare time usually consists of homework, me being in school, spending movie nights with my wife and gym. I 'm taking this English course in order to learn how to reinforce my writing skills not only for the college courses that I am taking now and plan on taking and will take in the future, but also for nursing purposes once I receive my degree.
He probably had it in him from the very day he was born. There was no way to prevent this, unless maybe if he had a father figure. I honestly don 't know if that would’ve even helped. Maybe she didn 't want to accept these claims, because she felt like it would be her fault. She would think that she wasn 't a good enough mother or that it’s her fault that there’s no powerful father figure there.
The previous quote is referencing mercy killings, A serious topic of debate in today's world.There are many that think that mercy killing are wrong, that there could have been another option. But others think it’s the right thing to do in some scenarios. This can be attributed to the many people foolishly believe George was wrong to kill Lennie. Although, they only think this could be the reality of the novel due to of the false possibility that George and Lennie could have run away from Curley and the rest of the ranchmen, this simply would not be achievable. “I’m gonna get him.
