Today in class we learned a disco combination. It was very fun and upbeat. At first I felt a little out of my comfort zone and a little shy but by the end of class, I was really enjoying this type of dancing. I think it is different that the other dance combinations in that it is harder to get down because the steps are quicker. It feels like a workout by itself because of the up and down jumping before the poses. I noticed that the dance incorporates a lot of isolation movements. For example, the first movement of the combination isolates the hips and shoulders. On the other hand, the African dance combination also uses a lot of isolations. For example, the head is isolated when performing the circular arm movements. Also the arms and chest are isolated when we do the four steps forward popping out our chests and contrasting it. I also realized that the salsa dancing has isolations of the hips too. In all the dance combinations we have learned, isolations have been a big part. Isolations create sharp distinguished movements of different body parts. It really makes a big difference when done correctly and adds emphasis on certain beats. Furthermore, I really appreciated Christian taking time to explain to us how to do a correct sit-up and pushup. I found out I have been experiencing neck pain because I was tugging on my neck too much. I need to work on raising my shoulder blades instead. Christian taught us that we should try to keep our arms straight out instead of…

In Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet there are two main women characters Ophelia and Gertrude. Is it simply a coincidence that these women, the only women in the play end up letting themselves go crazy, and are continually manipulate, controlled, and taken advantage of by the male characters in the play? Is it really coincidental that when ophelia's love is taken away from her that she goes mad, and when Gertrude is suddenly without a husband…

What I have learned
After reading Chapter 2 in Foundations for Multilingualism in Education and Chapter 2 in Myths and Realities, I have learned that how contact between speakers of different languages has developed historically. It also presents the two arguments .One is supporting the maintaining the linguistic diversity and the other one is encouraging a monolingual norm. The causes of the bilingualism or multilingualism are two ways. One is…

In the story "The Death of the Moth", Virginia Woolf illustrates the universal struggle between life and death. She uses a moth – something tangible; something dull, gray creature – and life – something abstract; the most precious thing to a human being – to explain her argument. And throughout the essay, Woolf uses many literary devices as well as rhetorical devices to describe, to compare and contrast, and to…

In the novel I've chosen, Lullabies for Little Criminals, I started to discover more
characteristics of characters. For example; Baby is seen to be holding on to the little
memory she has of her mother. On page 44 Baby tries to see a connection between
her and her mother. "As I lay in the dark, I knew everyone was thinking about their
mothers. I wanted to think about mine too, but I couldn't come up with much. Jules
never liked talking about her…
the routines they had been accustomed to.
Dysfunction—new mothers feel they can no longer function as they used to.
Danger—the added stress of the new baby causes the mother to feel suicidal because she feels she cannot cope with all the pressure (pp. 2-4).
A lot of new mothers experience shame due to the stigma attached to postpartum depression. I can relate to this because I felt some of these same feelings when I became a new mother. I could not keep things in perspective and I felt overwhelmed…

I found that the readings due this week were particularly interesting. Considering I have a younger sister with autism, I happen to hear myths a lot.
Myth #6: People with disabilities are more comfortable with “their own kind”.
I know this is untrue especially for my younger sister, Mia. Mia loves to talk to everybody and make them feel like…

In the article, “Psychological Correlates of Perception of Sexual Intent in Women” published by Eric Koukounas, and Nicole M. Letch, they are studying the way women act towards men, and how men perceive their actions. They do this study by starting out, and having 183 and 186 women. The participants are to watch a short clip, with a man and a woman interacting. The authors of this experiment were focused on the eye contact…
Assertion Journal #2
“Now, women forget all those things they don’t want to remember, and remember everything they don’t want to forget. The dream is the truth. Then they act and do things accordingly.”
-Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God
This assertion is true. The assertion can be interpreted to mean that women have a skewed version of the past. This can be deduced from the text by the fact that in the very first sentence it states, “Now, women forget all those things they…
