Buddhism started with the Buddha who was born as Siddhartha Gautama in Nepal around 2,500 years ago. The word ‘Buddha’ means ‘who is awake’ and in the sense of having ‘woken up to reality’. He did not say his is a god or a prophet. He was a human being who became Enlightened, try to understanding life in the deepest way possible.
When trying to define a word such as Liberalism it seems difficult to find a solid definition. There are different forms of liberalism and different meanings depending on the time period it is being applied to (idea taken from Phil Badger author from philosophynow). To solve this ambiguity, I’ve decided to define liberalism based on the time period in which I will be conducting my research. Liberalism in the 1700s was the belief of freedom and equals rights generally associated with the enlightenment thinkers, John Locke and Montesquieu (as defined by wikipedia.org).
Bohemian Rhapsody by The Queens, why you ask? I mean have you heard of it. It is a complex mixture of rock, pop, classical, theatrical, I could even say rap and emo. From the start up until the end it will lead you into different simulating emotions. One part you will be crying, another part anxious, then you will jump for joy, then it will make you feel so awkward, then cry again, then it will make you belt out a note you did not even expect you will hit. It is an awesome song by an awesome band. So, what it has got to do with me? Whenever I pitch this song to my friends they immediately refuse to listen to it because it was from a rock band of the 80's. They see it as dark and demonic in some instance, to which I would agree but not all of it. As dark as it may be, it is colorful as any song.
World view has a hint of irony in it in the fact that it’s defined as the overall perspective from which one sees and interprets the world. However, worldview to most people seems like a general, shared idea. The fact that world view can change from one person to another even though they are both viewing the same world is where the irony stems from. My personal worldview can’t just be simply defined. My world view needs to be broken down and looked at from the very beginning to understand how and why I view certain aspects of the world differently.
Ethical decisions are made very frequently in life, as are unethical decisions. In The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas and Macbeth by William Shakespeare, there are many more unethical decisions made than ethical ones. Doctor House also seems to make decisions in the show “House” that seem very unethical, but because he is a doctor, he must follow a different set of rules than everyone else. Thinking about each decision before making it can change the entire outcome of the situation, whether that is positive or negative. Monte Cristo is concerned with getting revenge, which almost always leads to a negative outcome. Macbeth is trying to win the thrown, which leads him to make very unethical decisions. House, on the other hand, thinks hard about every situation and thinks about the outcomes in his head so he can make the best decision for his patients. Each character must make many decisions, but some of them do not always think them through.
Before taking political science, I had a relatively little interest in politics. Since taking the course, however, my understanding, as well as interest in political topics has increased. I have become more aware of political topics, and their bases in history. Previously, I had watched the presidential debates, but only those. Since then I have taken an interest in local elections, alongside presidential primaries.
The United States has been referred to as a melting pot because of the different people from many different places that came to live in America. Because of the different cultures the U.S. has many varying type of citizens with many different viewpoints. Every person has opinion on important issues in politics, and these opinions categorize them into different groups or typologies. I have taken a quiz to tell me what my typology was and have begun to evaluate my results.
The United States is often considered one of the world’s leading nations. Sadly, America is more and more leading the world in immorality. How will the decline of this once-great nation affect our world- and you? To be immoral means to not be conforming to accepted standards of morality. It is sometimes acceptable to be immoral or unethical, for it allows us to learn and grow through challenges, some morals and ethics go against our own beliefs, and no one is perfect.
It is not so hard to observe others’ actions and pinpoint what mindset traits they might have, but it is difficult to think of my own mindset traits, especially fixed mindset versus growth mindset. Making a list of my mindset traits is not an easy task. When I made my initial list, many of the traits ended up being those of others that I have observed. I had to really think about my actions and how others interpret them. Sometimes what I think I am is not who I am and vice versa, so thinking about how other people see me and what I have done in the past helped generating my list of fixed mindset traits.
Honestly this has been my favorite discussion of ours thus far. I admit, I have extremely liberal views and socialist tendencies and when I’m confronted with someone on the opposite end of the spectrum I’m quick to assume the moral high ground.
Coming into an introduction to politics class, I thought to myself I knew exactly where my political views were on the scale. As the first two weeks of class went on, there was a constant questioning if my political views were still the same. The only way to find this out was by taking a quiz online at politicalcompass.org. After taking this quiz, it would hopefully give the results I had been hoping for.
Mindset is a scientific proof that shows both the potential of the brain to grow and change. It is divided into two categories: growth mindset and fixed mindset. Each people have different responds to challenges. There are people who can still stand and fight despite all of the failures. Likewise, there are people who are less resilient and tend to give up easily. Different kinds of mindset, specifically a positive or negative mindset, exist. One’s thinking affects his/her whole performance. The purpose of this study is to point out some of the causes and effects of a mindset when it comes to studying.

A: By Ramsay having this mindset, he has been able to accumulate and hold on to more awards, such as Michelin stars, than other chefs can dream to have in a lifetime.
Today I would consider myself an average student. On occasion I tend to slack off but what student doesn’t. At the end of the day, I always try my hardest to be the best possible student I can be but, life isn’t perfect everyone has setbacks but we have to work through it. Don’t take obstacles as a negative switch them into a positive use them as motivation to keep going, Ralph Marston states “you turn a negative into a positive, you gain twice. You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force”.
The rise of ideologies is based on belief that people could improve their conditions by taking positive action instead of passively accepting life as it came. Political ideologies provide an interpretation of the present and a view of a desired future (Baradat, 1988). In an attempt to organize the government and the society, three major political ideologies are largely mentioned; Liberalism, Socialism and Anarchism. Liberalism is a political philosophy founded on ideas of liberty and equality, which comprises of negative and positive liberties. Liberalism has a large emphasis on individualism, freedom, and the
