For my IBL I decided to look at the photography and life of Lewis Hine. Lewis Hine was born in Wisconsin in 1874 and attended the University of Chicago in 1900 where he studied particularly in childhood education. After college he was hired as a teacher and for field trips he would take his kids to poverty stricken streets and he would document the poverty. The National Child Labor Committee hired him in 1908 where he began to take thousands of pictures of child labor. His works proved effective because a movement began to set laws on child labor. His photography was a campaign to end child labor. When I look at his photography it makes me shutter at how some of these children were treated. Some of the kids working are tiny and are doing really difficult tasks. In all of his pictures the kids are wearing dirty and ripped clothing, which shows the arduous work they had to do. At this time in history it was hard to get news around compared to today wear we just have to press a button and the fact that Lewis Hines photography started a movement that ultimately ended the child hood labor as it was is incredible and shows how powerful his works were. Today’s society seems so different and I am thankful for that. You hardly ever see children working full time as children did back then. Education is the key to success in the world in which we live in today and thinking about those children pictured makes me sad because they never got a proper education due to their work…
Faded (drank, drank), faded (drank, drank)
Now I done grew up
Round some people living their life in bottles
Granddaddy had the golden flask
Back stroke every day in Chicago
Some people like the way it feels
Some people wanna kill their sorrows
Some people wanna fit in with the popular
That was my problem
I was in the dark room
Loud tunes, looking to make a vow soon
That I'ma get fucked up, fillin' up my cup
I see the crowd mood
Changing by the minute and the record on repeat…
HA 115 / Survey of Art I
Prof. Evan Neely
For this assignment I chose two pieces of work that belong to the Metropolitan Museum of Art; one relief from the Egyptian period: Dynasty 13, reign of Sebekhotep II (ca. 1745 B.C.); and the second one which is a Roman relief from the 3rd century A.D. The purpose of the paper is to discuss and compare the two works in relationship to the way bodily interaction is rendered by the carving and…
I was unfair when I behaved selfish and just thinking about myself. After the revolution in Egypt my family decided to leave and go to the USA, but I disagreed with them and thought about myself, all I wanted is to finish my degree and get my computer science bachelor from the university I was studying. I had only one year left and my family wanted to leave the country and me leaving will destroy the 3 years that I studied and I will have to study from the scratch. I stood for my family…
Since I was a child I found numbers fascinating. I was the student to put my hand up in Maths lessons and answer the questions. Unlike other students I enjoyed doing Maths homework and did it for fun. As I grew older I was trying to figure out what career might be best for me and I thought Accounting was a great choice. As I stepped onto the Accounting path and learned what it is about, I am eager to deepen my knowledge and apply the theory with the reality.
As I have been attending my business…
When I was younger, still in elementary school, I was captivated by science. I used to want to be an archeologist. I loved discovering new and exciting things. When I was little, instead of watching cartoons, I watched every documentary I could get my hands on. It didn't matter what the documentary was about — earthquakes, volcanoes, global warming, space — I wanted to discover it all. I was extremely passionate, especially about issues pertaining to the environment.
One day in fifth grade during…
I was sitting at home one day when the phone rang. I picked it up and I heard my friend Heidi on the other end whom proceeded to tell me about a fifteen year old girl whom came into her office at work and was attempting to have an abortion. The girl was however was to far along for the medical procedure to take place. In having conversation with the young girl Heidi provided her with many other options in regards to her unborn child, one of them being adoption. As Heidi proceeded to talk the girl…

The Week I Was A Spy
The way we communicate varies based on what the issue is that we are addressing. Communication does not have to be verbal, non-verbal communication does exist. This would include hand gestures, facial expressions and any other body language. Over the period of a week, I began my observation on a specific person of which I will not reveal.
The normal communication is for the most part a competitive one. Although I had realized this a few months ago…
I was not aware of the fact that 1 in 36,000 Hispanics were at risk for SCD. Also, I was intrigued by the fact that PCN prophylaxis was part of the protocol so I did some research. I realize that it is to prevent pneumonia or sepsis because the babies are more at risk. I like how you added the transitioning to teen years. As a parent of a teen with a chronic disease, I found that age very difficult myself. Kids do not want to be different.
Also for the emotional part, I had a patient who was 37…
When I was enrolled in the B.A. (Hons) Finance, Accounting and Management programme at the University of Nottingham Ningbo, I did not know I would foster such a strong interest in finance. From financial statements to financial instruments, great delight was evidenced in my study. Reviewing the past three years, my understanding towards classic financial theories was raised from vivid case studies and seminar discussions. Thanks to the advanced British concept of education, I was trained to think…
I Was There
Has it ever occurred to you that a text has been heavily influenced by an authors past? Many authors use their own personal experiences to put together a text. This is why I have chosen to explore five different texts and how their time period/location influenced their writing, how characters have been influenced by real people and how texts have been related to important events in their lives.
The authors and novels I have chosen to explore are; To kill a mocking bird by Harper Lee…
