As I reflect on my medication pass, I not only realize the lessons I learned, but also the things I will take with me with me for a lifetime. This was quite the experience of learning and lessons to become a registered nurse, so as I began my day, I began by looking up my patient’s medication. I would be passing in the MAR – on the computer. This is where I proceeded to check for allergies (medicine and relevant food), this should be done every time you give a medication. The instructor said ok are you ready?
There are two devices Anzaldua uses effectively in her essay which are anecdotes and parallel structure. These rhetorical devices further the message Anzaldua is trying to present of how it is difficult for someone to learn a whole new language. First of all, is the use of anecdotes in “How to Tame a Wild Tongue”. Anzaldua provides many anecdotes within her writing to give the reader an example of the struggles she had as a child learning english. For example, when the commences Anzaldua says “ I remember being caught speaking Spanish at recess-that was good for 3 licks on the knuckles with a sharp ruler.” The use of this anecdote makes Anzaldua’s writing more potent because she is giving the readers examples of the consequences that were given if one were to speak spanish.
As siblings we don’t get a long that well. We fight a lot, but we also do things together and love each other. I’m thankful for my siblings without them, the house would be quiet and boring. Although there are also lots of things that may annoy and embarrass us all as siblings. When we were in grade school, we went to the same school.
African Americans, or any person of color, have to constantly be on guard against racists acts. In the movie, Get Out, written and directed by actor, Jordan Peele, a young African American male meets his white girlfriend’s parents for a week in the estate that is secluded deep in the woods. As the movie and time progress, the friendly and what seems to be a non-racist family, eventually reveals a nightmare in the fact that they are racist. With a socially conscious message, the
Further, forms of racial representation accumulate meaning over time and the historical image of the black man as chattel, initially to perpetuate and justify his role as a slave, has today transformed into what Alexander Michelle calls "the racial caste system". In this essay, I will argue that blackface, as an act of racial impersonation, matters because it continues to evoke and sustain negative stereotypes that manifest in racial prejudice and discrimination. Nowhere is such negative stereotyping more evident than in the 1915 film, "Birth of a Nation" : an explicitly racist film that continues to stir conflict and has even been used as a recruitment piece for the Ku Klux Klan. Despite the psychological damage of such works, an examination of the popularity of the film at the time helps us in understanding the ideological influence of such representation. Although racialized representations of stereotypical black images were already in existence in print media, it was Birth of a Nation that brought to the forefront black stereotypes in cinema and portrayed major anti-black caricatures: loyal "Toms", the clownish
Mrs. Horner came and spoke to the class about Acupuncture as an alternative medical choice.

Things like television shows and movies contribute to this; whether it be a hispanic man portrayed as being illegal, or an asian man portrayed as an owner of a laundromat. Therefore, it is our view the negative stereotypes of African Americans in movies and TV shows has a impact on how they view themselves and can adversely affect their holistic development. The bias towards African Americans, whether it may be conscious or unconscious, is real. Modern day media has a major role to play in this, since what we see can have effects on our lives. For many years now, the media has been lambasted for their representation of African Americans to the general public.
During this time, African-Americans were excluded from public transportation facilities, juries, jobs, and neighborhoods. Many Southern and bordering States did not honor the rights of African-Americans, even with the passing of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. African-Americans assumed the roles as singers and/or comedians; they were only allowed to perform on air but could not talk. (Miller, 2006, p 72) talks about Jack L. Cooper was a comedian on the air in WCAP/Washington DC. With his determination, Cooper became the first African-Americans radio announcer.

It involves the removal of a foley catheter and an IV.tubing on my patient which was due according to the protocol of the hospital.Although my primary nurses wanted to carry out the procedure with me assisting her,my instructor suggest that I do it while she supervises me since it was my first time.

Also, this time period was reflected through the style and genre of music. Race was greatly affected from comedians, folk singers, actors, and music that ultimately reflected society’s opinions during that time. Pop culture made it obvious that parts of society had issues with music and race, but there also was a part of society that became more accepting. Race during this time period was a great issue, which many African American comedians used to poke fun with their own heritage and culture. African American comedians could be found degrading color and their rights they liked in order to appeal their white audiences.
Today’s lecture on the physician assistants (PA) was very informative. Mrs. Hughes spoke on what a physician assistant is, what they do as well as what the requirements are for those who chose the career path. PA’s are individuals whom practice medicine while also being under the supervision of medical doctors or physicians. They can work in all areas of medicine including emergency medicine, surgery and psychiatry which Mrs. Hughes works under. Within this occupation individuals have the ability to prescribe medicine, diagnose and treat mental illnesses, give immunizations as well as perform various other tasks.
Factors can exist in in the perceiver, the target, or the situation. For example, when you look at your target, your interpretation of what you see is influenced by your personal characteristics (Book pg.153). Things that are important to you matter in these situations and the context in which perceptions are interpreted have an impact. I also believe that stereotypes play a factor in this as well. Being African American, I know many of times I have experienced situations where on the job that sly remarks have been made or actions have been displayed towards me.
