Since the beginning of high-school, my cousin struggled mightily with a negative self-image, caused by her peers and others on social media. With all the negativity from Instagram and even from TV shows, she ended up developing an eating disorder. Her eating disorder became so terrible that she ended up severely underweight, and because of that, she had bad health. One day she was taking a shower and fell; because she was so skinny from her eating disorder, she died from the fall. The past year we have all felt the loss of her, and miss her very much.
Cultural artifacts are different to everyone; to some individuals an artifact is family, friends, animals and belongings they were given or worked for. One student named Char Reeb works at Bob Evans and brought an apron from her work as her artifact. A brief description about Char is, she 's married and quit her job for her husband so now she is enrolled in nursing school and is graduating soon. Reeb hates her job because of the rude individuals that dine in and also because she works with very inexperienced high school students. Char and I are alike but mostly different; we both hate our jobs and are graduating soon.
Brenda— Yes, I have experienced desirable turnover in the past. I previously worked with a nurse who made multiple medication errors and poor patient care decisions. This employee was given multiple chances to improve her performance; however she was eventually terminated based on poor performance. Additionally, I worked with a certified nursing assistant who simply did not show up to work for three weeks and was unavailable when management attempted to contact her multiple times. She left a leave form on my boss’s desk that was never officially approved by management stating she would be gone.
She shows her low self-esteem referring to her leg when she tells Jim, “To me it sounded like-thunder!” (The Glass Menagerie 1.7.35-36). Not only does she have low self-esteem, but her self-esteem is so low that she could not handle finishing Business School as she drops out. Through Laura’s small lies to Amanda, her mother, Amanda finds out and explains while quoting Laura’s teacher, “ And she said, “…..The first time we gave a speed-test, she broke down completely- was sick at the stomach and almost had to be carried into the wash-room!...”.” (The Glass Menagerie, 1.2.42-47 ). This quote supports the characteristic of low self-esteem. Self-esteem is how one shows themselves to society.
The Takeshimas move to “Lynn’s home” in an effort to help her get better with the help of the saved money from the kids. Lynn recovers slightly, but then falls back to sickness after Sammy gets caught in a trap on a picnic. Lynn's condition continues to worsen and Lynn becomes easily angered, (An example being of when Lynn wanted milk, only to throw it on the floor, and when Katie brought water, also threw that.) Later on, Lynn dies alone and it is discovered that 4 days before she died, she wrote a will to her family stating who got what from her because she knew she would die soon. Katie finally realizes why Lynn had taught her the word “Kira-Kira”.
I have met Eva on my day off, Ellen introduced me to her and we shared many of the same issues including being underpaid and overworked. The treatment I got in your household was fairly good however the workload was too much too handle and I was not being paid enough compared to other maids in the North Midlands. About a week ago on Friday I ran into Eva Smith on my day off in the farmers market, she looked like she have gained weight, tired and miserable I asked how she felt and if she was okay. She answered “the Birlings have fired me twice, stopped my living and many things I refuse to mention for the well being of someone very dear to my heart, may God make justice is all i say”. Staying alive and healthy is becoming harder and more expensive by the day yet my wage have not increased a penny, I have kids to take care of, to feed, a husband that takes care of my children and to him I must monthly deliver my wage
A mammography tech learned that the hard way in October 2008. According to Louise Dickson on timescolonist.com, Joy McKerr sued the clinic itself and the mammo tech she had, due to outright negligence. The article states that during the exam, she was in extreme pain and asked the tech to stop the procedure. The tech did not listen and continued anyway, causing McKerr to swell and bruise almost instantly, and the injury did not heal for several months. The patient was diagnosed with breast cancer four months later, which she believed to be caused by this issue.
Many people are always judging and criticizing women because they don’t like when someone breastfeeds in public. A mom in Beverly Hills says she was escorted to a bathroom at an anthropologie store when she was breastfeeding her six-week-old-baby. Outraged, she took to social media and less than a day later more than 100 women staged a “nurse-in” at the store to protest (Kelly Mom). Let’s hear about the women in Beaverton, Oregon. Beaverton, Oregon, was the site of another recent “nurse-in” after a breastfeeding mom was to cover up in a restaurant.

Based on a poll, 40% of nine and ten year-olds had tried losing weight and at age thirteen (Body Image and Gender Identity, 2002), 53% of girls were unhappy with their image (National Institute on Media and the Family). Now, this cannot all be responsible on the media, but with celebrities becoming thinner and thinner, much self-confidence is lost and images of television stars or models have been associated to body discontentment (National Institute on Media and the Family). Celebrities need to be worried about their image because of the unpleasant fact that it causes young fans to struggle to be unhealthily thin. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that eating disorders affect more than five million Americans a year, with disorders usually beginning in the youth or as early as eight.
