Similarly, Michael Bishop said in " Enemies of Promise," "We live in an age of scientific triumph....   [tags: Reflection Enemies] 1221 words

Reflection Essay - Much like Benjamin Franklin believed, I feel that a person should take advantage of the time the person has in life with activities a person wants to do or needs to do. A person should not spend much time on activities the person does not want to do. Life is way too short to concern oneself with work or other activities one wants nothing to do with all the time. When possible, I try to forget about my responsibility and just let go of the ‘things’ that do not matter to me. I think a person should try to occupy oneself with something productive, worthwhile, or necessary at all times....   [tags: Reflection Essay] 1600 words

This entails loving even our enemies as Christ has. Yet, how do we love those who harm us. To often we believe that any harm to us demands a distorted form of justice.

Penmanship: Fractional Reflection - The narrator of “Penmanship” is a man madly in love in the art of writing. It is through entering the enchanting world of pen and paper that he is able to face the complexities of reality like social cancer (corruption), violence (murder) and fiery emotions (love) with strength and confidence. He could feel “a twinge of sorrow” every time he mails a letter because he had voluntarily given away a part of himself.

Shadow and Light Investigation Reflection - I really enjoyed this weeks science investigation about shadows and light. In my experience, this science work doesn’t look like the science courses I have taken in my K-14 education. Generally, my science courses were focused more on memorization rather than exploration. In my elementary science class, I remember memorizing science concepts, looking up words in the glossary, writing reports, and reading and answering questions from the book. Also, we had science magazines, where we had to read the articles and fill out the answers....   [tags: Experiment Reflection] 643 words

Written by a woman, the poem's main character of a betrayed female has a subjective stance, which evokes a strong emotion of sympathy from the reader as it could represent a true life event. The structure of the poem is set out in seven stanzas, consisting eight lines. What is interesting about the structure is the use of iambic tetrameter with the first, third, fifth and seventh lines of each stanza and iambic trimeter with the second, fourth, sixth and eight lines....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Aphra Behn] 1441 words

My Learning Journey - As part of my second semester at university examining research and its implications, I have been exploring numerous methodical case studies to illustrate my knowledge into selected research, regarding scepticism, validity as well as ethics. One of the case studies that I looked into was Goldacre (2009). Research can often be distorted presenting incorrect information that results in contradictions as well as altering the meaning of the conducted research. Therefore “seeking through methodical processes to add to one’s own body of knowledge and, hopefully, to that of others, by the discovery of non-trivial facts and insights” (Sharp, Peters and Howard, 2002)....   [tags: Reflection ]
