A Glass of Cold Water

Everybody calls me young, beautiful, wonderful. Am I? Look at my hair, my lips, my red rosy cheeks and a pair of blinkering eyes.
I remember, somebody says that I look like my mother. But that when she was young.

Now, I am much lovelier than she is. I'm a mortal Venus. Oops! What time is it? I must get ready for the party!
Beep-beep…!A-huh! Here they are! Yes, I'm coming!
"Child, are you still there?"
"Hmp! That's my mama"

"Child, are you still there? Will you please get me a glass of cold water?"
"Mama, I'm in a hurry!"
"Please child, try to get me a glass of cold water."
"Mama, please, try to get it on your own."
"Please child, try to get me a glass of cold water!"

At the party, I danced and danced the whole night.
You see, I can't leave the party at once. I have to danced with everybody who proposed to me. At last, the party is over. I'm very tired. Very, very tired.

So, I went home to tell mama what happened.
"Mama, I'm home! It's very quiet. "Mama, I'm home!" Nobody answers.
Where is she? I look for her in the sala, but she's not there. Where is she? A-huh! In the kitchen!
I saw my mama, lying down on the floor, dead. With a glass on her hand. I remember, she tried to get it.
Oh, God, just for the glass of cold water! Mama! Mama! Oh,…...

...Homework #1 – Basic Terms and Concepts Name: Intro to the Environment - Eco Footprint - Homework #1 (HW1) – Fall 2012 1. An ecosystem is a community of organisms living in a particular environment and also the physical elements in that given environment, in which these organisms interact. Its diversity is profoundly substantial. An ecosystem can extend from the icy artic zones to the tropical forests. They occur in many different scales with smaller systems pierced inside larger systems. Depending on the scale, an ecosystem can be small or profoundly large. 2. Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize foods from carbon dioxide and water. In plants, photosynthesis generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a byproduct. 3. A producer in an ecosystem, converts energy from the environment into carbon bonds. For instance, green plants use energy from the sun to create more complex molecules like carbon dioxide into glucose. Consumers on the other hand are organisms that obtain nutrients from other organisms. They attain their energy from the carbon bonds made by the producers. An example of a consumer is animal that gets its energy from plants. It is also called an herbivore. A few examples of herbivores include cows, moose, gazelles, rabbits and elephants. The trophic level of an organism is where the organism is situated in the food chain. A food chain is similar......

...Assignment for Seminar 1, September 18, 2013 Brittany Barnes, 5408224 In the article, An urban metabolism and ecological footprint assessment of Metro Vancouver (2013), Moore, Kissinger, and Rees present extensive data regarding urban metabolism analysis (UMA) of residential consumption and ecological footprint analysis (EFA) of the Metro Vancouver region for the year 2006. The authors first collect Metro Vancouver’s urban metabolism data from local and provincial government, and provincially owned corporations and include: Metro Vancouver reports, Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority reports, Province of British Columbia reports, as well as BC Hydro reports (Moore et al, 2013, p. 54). The authors then collect Metro Vancouver’s ecological footprint estimates, in global average hectares (gha), of the ecosystem area required on a continuous basis by the region’s population to produce the products and carbon emissions in which it produces (p. 54). The third figure accompanying the article (p. 57), which summarizes the urban metabolism and ecological footprint of Metro Vancouver for 2006 (p. 56), indicates that water represents the largest material flow through Metro Vancouver of 424,860,000 m3, but has the smallest ecological footprint of 34,550 gha (p. 57). The results on figure three (p. 57) also display that food (1,753,000 tonnes) contributes the largest component to the ecological footprint of 4,514,400 gha (p. 57).

...The demographic transition is the measurements created from the gradual shift in birth and death rates from the primitive to the modern condition in the industrialized societies (Wright, et al, 2011). Our understanding of the demographic transition includes the crude birthrate (CBR) and the crude death rate (CDR). The CBR and CDR are the number of births and deaths, respectively per thousand of the population per year. With data given per thousand of the population, the populations of different countries can be compared regardless of their total size. In using the term “crude” we are implicating that no consideration is given to what proportion of the population is old or young, male or female. CDR is subtracted from CBR which gives the increase or decrease per thousand per year and dividing this result by ten yields the percent increase or decrease of the population (Wright, et al, 2011). The four phases of the demographic transition are such as phase one in which there is the primitive stability resulting from a high CBR with an offset from an equally high CDR. In phase two is a declining CDR resulting from the epidemiologic transition. Fertility and the CBR remain high which activates population growth in this phase II. Phase III has a declining fertility rate however the population growth is still significant. Phase IV is reached when modern stability is achieved by a continuation of a low CDR and CBR. In the epidemiologic transition there has been a high crude death...

...1. Discuss the different philosophies on beekeeping espoused by commercial keepers such as Menendez vs. Organic keepers such as “The Queen Bee.” (The woman in Arizona) Commercial beekeepers routinely kill the queen after only a few months and replace her with a younger artificially raised one. Beekeepers remove the queen from the hive, pinch her head and then introduce a surrogate in a cage. The cage prevents the colony from killing the foreign queen until the adapt to her scent. They also use insemination collected from male drones. They do this to select from certain traits. Another method is the practice of taking honey away from the hives and replacing it with sugar syrup. Organic beekeepers do not feed the bees sugar syrup they also are against the use of Miticides. 2. Discuss the various things that are thought to contribute to CCD. Of these, which is thought to be the most significant factor? What evidence is there to support this? Scientists turned to farming methods to explain the collapse of bees. They thought the use systemic pesticides, such as Gaucho an Poncho, were reasons why bees die. They found pesticides, but they did not know what they were doing to the bees. You would be able to see the dead bees around the hive. However, there were no dead bees in sight. 3. Why do the American Beekeepers have a difficult time selling honey? How can this contribute to the problem facing the bees? It is hard for American Beekeepers to sell honey because they are......

Self Respect Nad Dignity for Elderly Resident

...promote and not degrade his self respect despite his present situation (being wet with urine and smell of faeces), frail or his age (SCIE, 2006). Mr Moses despite his present circumstance should feel value before, during and after his care (Nursing Standard, 2007). The concept of dignity has to do with privacy, respect, autonomy, identity and self worth thereby making life worth living for them (SCIE, 2006). However, each patient needs is unique, the level of these concept will varies on individual service user, such as the privacy that other service user need will be different from what Mr Moses require at the time of His care. When dignity is not present during his care, Mr Moses will feel devalued, lacking control, comfort and feel embarrass and ashamed (RCN, 2008). Things that emerged in my observation for Mr Moses to be provided with care in a dignified way involves, delivery Mr Moses personal care in a way that maintain his dignity, having support from team members and an up to date training in delivering care, and supportive ward environment (NHS evidence, 2007). I did raise some issues with my mentor that was missing when attending to Mr Moses which includes: Respect, Privacy, Self-esteem (self-worth, identity and a sense of oneself) and Autonomy (SCIE, 2006). Respect is a summary of courtesy, good communication and taking time (SCIE. 2006).

Introduction This lab was conducted to examine the two biological processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Photosynthesis is a process that uses carbon dioxide, water and energy to produce glucose and oxygen. Cellular Respiration is the reverse process of photosynthesis. Cellular Respiration uses the glucose and oxygen to produce carbon dioxide, water and energy. These become the main source of food and energy for the plants and animals. The basis of the relationship between plants and animals is that they have a co-dependency upon each other because they are both making something the other needs.
