As the sunÃ¢â¬â¢s destructive beams shaft through the draining ozone layer the globe starts to warm, earths polar ice tops soften and gradually start the end of life. This advertisement exhibits the circumstances and logical results of an Earth-wide temperature boost. The world inside the lower quadrant of the hourglass is gradually getting gulped by the ocean because of the liquefying ice tops above. We will compose a custom exposition test on An Earth-wide temperature boost AD or on the other hand any comparable theme just for you Request Now Inside the hourglass thereÃ¢â¬â¢s text expressing Ã¢â¬Å"we are gradually using up all available time, act now before itÃ¢â¬â¢s too lateÃ¢â¬ . In the highest point of great importance glass a polar bear and penguin sit upon two about dissolved ice tops. The world underneath has vehicles crashing into a city passed slashed down trees, and a service station. In spite of the fact that the promotion gives off an impression of being notice us of a worldwide temperature alteration, itÃ¢â¬â¢s really cautioning us of our own childishness! The advertisement utilizes three fundamental strategies to accomplish this, introduction of text, kinds of pictures, and picture sythesis. The publicists chose to utilize introduction of text in an unpretentious manner to express what is on their mind. The presentation of the content in this promotion has little properties. This identifies with the inclination individuals have towards the circumstance of an Earth-wide temperature boost. It demonstrates that we helpfully accept itÃ¢â¬â¢s a little issue and doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t should be introduced as a significant issue. Individuals maintain a strategic distance from reality and would prefer simply give it to the cutting edge to manage. The utilization of this strategy helps sell the possibility that we are to narrow minded to address the circumstance. Despite the fact that we have logical proof that a dangerous atmospheric devation is going on, and that the polar ice tops are softening, individuals still donÃ¢â¬â¢t need to make it an issue. Individuals would prefer to act narrow minded and demolish the earth at that point be troubled and need to surrender their agreeable lives. A more grounded strategy utilized by the publicist is the utilization of sorts of pictures, which furnishes us with additional proof. The kinds of pictures utilized in this promotion show the publicists point in an all the more straight forward way. They utilize the pictures of road illuminates prompting a city loaded with elevated structures to furnish us with the thought that we misuse vitality. On the roadsides thereÃ¢â¬â¢s cleaved down trees and a service station showing how people assault our property of its regular assets. Vehicles fill the road demonstrating an extravagance that dirties and decimates the earth. All of which straightforwardly relates with the picture of the softening polar ice tops in the highest point of the hourglass. By and by it sells that the advertisement advises us regarding our own childishness. It shows that individuals will do anything for their extravagances, regardless of whether it wrecks our own planet. Giving proof that our self-centeredness won't let anything stand among us and the things we love, even at the greatest expense. By utilizing a less observable, albeit more grounded strategy, organization of pictures furnishes us with additional proof of their procedure. Picture structure is the last and most grounded strategy utilized by the publicist. In the top edge of the hourglass the ice top sits in unadulterated blue water. In the lower area of the hourglass the earth is being gulped by stale dreadful water demonstrating the absence of life. Additionally in the top casing a polar bear and a penguin sit roosted envisioning their last snapshots of life as their universes gradually liquefy away. As two flying creatures float over the ground as their reality vanishes also. This sells the thought by indicating that individuals are too narrow minded to even consider caring about their own lives, yet in addition each other life on this planet. Different animals are going to bite the dust legitimately brought about by our activities. The ocean water levels are going to rise while the land becomes inundated making life on earth decrease. Also, we are too childish to even think about looking around and understand that we are wrecking all environments. However we despite everything act like we are separated from everyone else on this planet. This advertisement cautions us of both a dangerous atmospheric devation and our childishness as people. By joining three strategies, introduction of text, kinds of pictures, and picture creation the promoters show us the effects of both. The utilization of passing on creatures, manhandled normal assets, man made vehicles, and the liquefying polar ice top permits us to see the relationship between's the issue of a worldwide temperature alteration and our self-centeredness. The introduction of text raises the familiarity with individuals thinking itÃ¢â¬â¢s not a significant circumstance, in this manner selling the thoughts of an unnatural weather change and our self-centeredness towards the conviction of a worldwide temperature alteration. Each includes us in a narrow minded way and utilizations circumstances and logical results to sell the item. In the event that people maintain being narrow minded and donÃ¢â¬â¢t quit exploiting our planet, at that point there will be no planet left to exploit.

The Fat Girl, Andre Dubus To acknowledge the others, first we need to acknowledge ourselves and acknowledge who we are The Fat Girl is a short anecdote about a young lady that attempts to fit in todays norms and fulfills her folks too. The creator , Andre Dubus , shows how attempting to fit in the general public guidelines , people have the weight of fitting in with a shallow picture. This thought is created through the early long periods of Louise , her weight change and new life , and back to the old propensity. As a matter of first importance, Andre Dubus, brings us into the life of a little youngster whose mother is persuading her that she will get fat and how hard is to make companions. We can see this after the mother reveal to her little girl , You should begin watching what you eat, her mom would state. I can see you have my digestion. As the mother doesnt need that, she puts Louise onto a severe eating regimen. All together not to disappoint her mom, yet at the same time fulfill her craving, Louise began eating food when nobody was viewing. While her mom was exacting and mindful, on the opposite side her dad was adoring and misinformed. Louise didnt have a great deal of companions. Her two cherished companions, Joan and Marjorie were both dainty however they felt as a social outsider in different manners. Louise just feels good within the sight of other people who were additionally uncertain and miserable. Amusingly Louise deliberately picks companions who are not substantial in light of the fact that she stresses over the manner in which others will see her. I was continually pondering what individuals saw when they took a gander at me and didnt need them to see two chunky young ladies. Apparently Louise sees her weight issues as greater than her companions uncertainties. She decides to reject the individuals who are overwhelming from her life while inviting those with various negative issues. Notwithstanding her mental self view issues, Louise likewise questions her capacity to discover bliss in a personal connection. Her mom put in her mind some negative recognitions, for example, In five years youll be in secondary school and if youre fat the young men wont like you; they wont ask you out . This statement shows the general sentiment of the individuals who dont fulfill todays guidelines. Louise proceeds down this negative street when she chooses to go to an all-young lady school so she can stay away from dismissal from folks. Up until this point her lone cont act with a kid was at an outing with a tanked kiss . Once in school , Louise gives us how changing and getting thinner has a ton of effect in someones life. Louise proceeds with her self-hatred into school where the main dear companion she makes is this flimsy young lady with intense subject matters. In the story we can see a solid companionship between the two young ladies, which prompts the significant point where Louise chooses to stop eating so much junk food, and it is simply because her closest companion Carrie persuades her that she needs to turn out to be flimsy with the goal that some kid will cherish her as Carrie does. Carrie argues, I need you to be adored the manner in which I love you. Louise, on the off chance that I help you, truly help you, will you start eating less?. In spite of the fact that Carrie is attempting to assist her with besting companion, she is really strengthening Louises perspectives on her own body. She begins losing fat and her mom begins threating her in an unexpected way. She discovers her directio n progressively excellent and begins purchasing a wide range of stuff .As Louise advances with her new eating routine, she turns out to be increasingly fractious and discontent with life. In for her entire life she had never been harrowed by bad mood and she viewed it now as an evil spirit which, alongside hunger, was taking belonging over her spirit .With this statement the creator needs to give us that Louise is being squeezed into getting in shape for carefully shallow reasons, thus she can get acknowledged into society and fit todays measures. This can be additionally observed when Louise feels disgrace and humiliation when she goes to Carries house for thanksgiving, all since she knows Carries guardians realize she is slimming down. Louise is awkward and feels avoided in participating in the numerous dishes the other flimsy individuals can easily appreciate. At long last , we cannot overlook our old propensities and some of the time we ought to acknowledge what our identity is and remain the manner in which we are. After school, the new slender Louise meets a youthful legal advisor named Richard, who discovers her appealing and has no information on her life previously. Louise is certain he could never have taken a gander at her in the event that she had still been substantial. They get hitched and Louise turns into a housewife. While Louise battles to keep herself dainty, her significant other can eat anything he needs and still stay fit. She makes him all sort of Italian food that she can't expend. Ironicly she weds an individual who has the digestion of a pencil sharpener when Louise must watch each calorie she eats. The following five years shows a Louise who is slim with new companions, a caring spouse, and a functioning way of life, which is by most records an ideal life. In her fifth year of marriage, Louise gets pregnant and her eating start to get wild. The new changes in her body scare her as Louise comments that she is beginning to put on weight yet she revealed to herself it was just the infant, and would leave with its introduction to the world. However, at different occasions she knew obviously that she was losing her control she had contended so energetically to pick up during her last year with Carrie. An infant is conceived, yet Louise has now come back to her negative behavior patterns and however she thinks about her youngster, she keeps on estranging her better half. They battle at about each supper over her hunger and weight gain . Andre Dubus completes his story with an amazed Louise getting a charge out of a piece of candy and stunned to find her significant other Richard is still there. All in all, The short story The Fat Girl by Andre Dubus shows huge numbers of the adverse perspectives related with dietary issues, chunky individuals, and the manner in which society tends to them. Todays gauges are excessively high and individuals who dont fit in them are getting dismissed and they feel pitiful about their body. At some point they take a stab at changing , yet here and there is smarter to be what your identity is and acknowledge yourself.

Our Favorite Comics of 2015 (So Far) Half the year has passed, so our Panelteers have reflected on the best comics published so far this year. Jem the Holograms by Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell (Jon Erik Christianson)* Before this year, I had never encountered anything Jem. My interest in this series came solely from my knowledge of the creative teamâ"Iâve been a fan of Kelly Thompsonâs since I started reading comics, and Sophie Campbellâs work speaks for itself. Holy shimmering sequins am I enamored with this series. I want Campbell to re-design everything: DC and Marvel superheroes, my wardrobe, the world. The characters in comic boast different heights, body sizes, facial features, hair colors, and stature. Expressions are varied and often hilariously fun. The series has a strict #NoHomo policyâ"if âhomoâ means âhomogeneity.â On the flipside (#YesHomo), the series is bursting with prominent queer characters who arenât sabotaged by dated tropes. Presumably with the help of goat sacrifice, Thompson manages to tell a character-centric story with a cast of eleven characters. Even characters lacking in panel time make up for it with efficient, smart dialogue. I liken this series to Cartoon Networkâs Steven Universe. Itâs a character-focused story set in a diverse, realistic world drenched in visual spectacle and a rad color palette. And it shouldnât be missed. SuperMutant Magic Academy by Jillian Tamaki (Hilary Lawlor) Jillian Tamakiâs Supermutant Magic Academy is so brilliant, itâs a little bit scary. When you first start reading, you think the comics arenât connected, that theyâre just about random kids at this school forâ¦ kids with random powers? But as the book goes on, you see the threads of stories between friends, interlocking timelines, jokes made in the beginning of the book that come up again later and then, epiphany: this isnât a random selection, itâs an ongoing sitcom/drama where every page is a different episode. Everything comes together in the end so subtly, you have to commend Tamakiâs deft hand. Plus, itâs hilarious and her art is fantastic. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl by Ryan North, Erica Henderson, Rico Renzi, Clayton Cowles, Maris Wicks (Katie Schenkel)* 2015 has been an amazing year for new comic series, but this one? This one is the one that consistently makes me happier every time I can get my hands on a new issue. The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is absolutely hilarious, has a focus on female characters, and allows the title character (who is kind of known for being majorly overpowered) to solve her problems through ways other than just punching. She still does a good amount of punching, but sheâs also empathetic to her foes and often recognizes when the situation can be defused by simply suggesting an alternative course of action. I canât forget about the art Erica Henderson brings a cartoony, fun look to the story and her version of our squirrely heroine is adorable. The fact that Squirrel Girl (alias Doreen Green) is a STEM student and the rest of her friends are people of color who are also STEM students is also pretty fantastic. The art and writing is both appropriate for kids while being clever and downright funny as heck. I canât recommend this all-ages book enough. Theyre Not Like Us #3 by Eric Stephenson, Simon Gane, Jordie Bellaire Fonografiks (Brian McNamara)* What if the only way you could find your place in the world, the only way to feel normal, to become part of a better life where you could be yourself, you had to kill your parents? Thatâs the choice placed in front of Syd, a young woman who is just learning to deal with innate telepathic powers. After years of no one believing she could read minds and being tortured by psychic chaffe, she chooses to take her life. But a charismatic stranger with telepathic powers of his own attempts to save her and in doing so brings her to a whole new world; a place full of others with unique powers, a place where outsiders could be free. Theyâre Not Like Us is a sort of postmodern X-Men; combining issues of acceptance, coming out and self-awareness with the world super powers and discrimination. It presents a realist view of what those powers mean, what moving beyond your old life could be like, as well as what the cost of cutting all ties really is. Simon Ganeâs art stands out, presenting fl eshed out rooms, distinct characters and is expertly accompanied by a moody yet vivid color palette from Jordie Bellaire. A novel feature of the single issues is that the cover features the first panel of the story, bringing the reader right into that world. Theyâre Not Like Us is at once a celebration and takedown of San Francisco hipsterism, placing our disaffected youth in a world that fears and hates them as much as they fear and hate it. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (Melody Schreiber) The more I think about it, the more I like this book. The characters are complex and compelling, and they challenge our ideas about heroes and villains. And itâs hilarious. I identified really deeply with Nimona, who is extremely self-confident and afraid of who she really is at the same time. Itâs the kind of book you want to wave around in public places and shout âREAD THIS NOW!â Bitch Planet #3 Kelly Sue DeConnick, Robert Wilson IV, and Valentine De Landro (Jenn Northington)* Bitch Planet is everything I want out of a comics reading experience and then some. Iâve always been hungry for politically inspired science fiction (thanks to early exposure to Ursula Le Guin) and Bitch Planet more than delivers on that front. By taking inspiration from exploitation films and the current battles for womenâs rights and then throwing them into the future and into outer space, Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine de Landro have created a place to explore what these things did mean, do mean, and could mean for us. Theyâve created a roster of characters that is truly diverse body type and shape, race and culture, orientation, opinions, abilities. The stakes are high, the action is intense, and the story takes place on a PRISON PLANET IN SPACE. And then there are the essays in the back of each issue, exploring issues of intersectional feminism I am here for your think-pieces, ladies and ladytypes. Thereâs a reason I have a non-compliant tattoo, and that reason is that Bitch Planet is my favorite comic of 2015 so far. Darth Vader by Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca, and Edgar Delgado (Michael Chasin)* Kieron Gillenâs been on fire lately, but even going into his newest book with high expectations there was something about this exploration of one of the biggest bads in history that took me by surprise. As a comic itâs great, and Larocca and Delgado do a thrilling job bringing the long ago, far, far away galaxy to life in a familiar, striking way, with every character perfectly designed and quiet moments that hit just as hard as the free-flowing action. For the Star Wars junkie, this is a great ride, and if it only succeeded on that level it would be worth checking out. But it goes further than that. This book is full-fledged rehab for Darth Vader, a character whose gravitas and iconography have been cheapened for decades. Well, no more. Once again the Dark Lord of the Sith is menacing, compelling, visually exciting, and outright cool in ways I forgot he could be, and thatâs just for starters. Beyond simply bringing Vader back to his roots, this comic also integrates some of th e less cringe-inducing material from the prequel trilogy through intelligent and emotionally true storytelling. For the first time it really does feel like Hayden Christensens Anakin might have grown into the man behind that legendary mask, and the fact that this creative team has pulled off that connection without lessening Vader in any way is astounding. Combine that with a great supporting cast (Triple Zero, the C-3PO of torture, is inspired) and a narrative that feels important in the context of the franchise, and were left with the best thing so far to come out of post-Disney Star Wars. And with the latter half of the year sure to be dominated by anticipation for the new movie, Darth Vaderâ"its first arc just completedâ"is the perfect way to remind yourself why we cared about this world and these stories in the first place. Giant Days by John Allison and Lissa Treiman (Marcy)* I hadnât heard of Giant Days until it was recommended to me by a friend it quickly became my current favourite comic of the year. It has a simple premise, three young women are at university, and this is the story of how they interact together and with other students. Itâs a story of that awkward in-between time when you think youâre no longer a child and believe yourself to be an adult attending university; but looking back you were really just a big kid learning how to adult. The art is really cute, the story is sharp with great conversations between the protagonists. Issue #1 is a masterclass in how to introduce characters that should be studied by everyone who wants to be or is involved in creating comics. Giant Days is a short six issue series and itâs a classic. Unflattening by Nick Sousanis (Hattie Kennedy) Unflattening is the published version of Sousanisâ PhD dissertation which happens to be a comic book. It is a fascinating exploration of comics and their potential for communicating stories and information. Sousanis explores how we read and just why comics might be the perfect way in which to experience all new ways of seeing, free of the limitations of purely visual or verbal forms of representation. If I am making it sound really dry, I really must emphasise that it isnât, indeed for someone who reads a lot of comics and writes about them this has been one of the most exciting things I have read in ages. If youâre even the smallest bit interested in how comics work and the potentials of the form then this is essential reading. References to other texts abound and Sousanis uses the page creatively to make this an intriguine and immersive reading experience. Alex + Ada, Volume 2 by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn (Chris Arnone) Volume 2 was published in March, but I canât recommend this entire story enough. I used the first two trades to catch up to this story and was in tears several times right up to the end (the series ends with issue #15). Alex + Ada is a beautiful story of love and what it means to be human. Itâs a simple story and all the better for its simplicity. I will absolutely be purchasing a nice, collected hardcover when it becomes available. Alex + Ada has a purposeful pace, so itâs best read all at once anyway. Ms. Marvel #16 by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona (Ali Colluccio) Iâm going to be real with you guys because Panels is a safe, non-judgy place. I cry every time I read an issue of Ms. Marvel. I laugh too. Thereâs a lot of gasping and cheering. Iâve been know to hug an issue or two after reading. I feel bad for the people on the subway or PATH with me when I read this comic because itâs gotta be awkward to see some random stranger go through a full range of emotions in a packed rush hour train. Weâre 16 issues into Ms. Marvel and this still happens to me every month. Miami Vice Remix by Joe Casey and Jim Mahfood (Eric Margolis)* So, my favorite comic of 2015 at this point has been Miami Vice: Remix. Really? Yeah, really! But, in an ironic way, right? Nope, I genuinely adored this comic. Back in April, Issue #1 was my pick of the month. This book caught me off guard, in the best possible way. Like I said back then, Iâm not a fan of licensed comics nor am I a fan of Miami Vice in general, but this book was AMAZING. The storyline was a completely ridiculous buddy-cop book with bath salt zombies, pet gators and insane over-the-top violence. Caseyâs script was superb and Mahfoodâs art was absolutely gorgeous (Really looking forward to seeing Mahfood on that upcoming issue of Howard the Duck now). Iâm super sad that this book was only a 5 issue miniseries, but Iâm hoping for a follow up. Buy this thing and tell everyone you know about it, because we need more! Convergence: Superman #1 Dan Jurgens, Lee Weeks, Brad Anderson (Mart Gray) Maybe nostalgia isnt what it used to be, but when youre in the mood, its just fantastic. And that was my reaction to the first issue of a two-part DC Convergence spin-off that gave us a pre-New 52 Superman and Lois Lane. For a few fabulous minutes I could forget the mess of a non-relationship theyve had over the last few years and wallow in the love between my two old friends. Lois and Clark, partners in life and partners in crimefighting, one more time. That theyre in an intriguing story showcasing the best aspects of their characters doesnt hurt. Writer Dan Jurgens, tasked with having them encounter the World of Flashpoint, reminds us of the heart contained within this classic pairing. Theyve been trapped in an impenetrable dome, God knows where, with no idea what the future will bring once the child theyre expecting is born; Superman has no powers; Lois has no outlet for the reports she cant stop writing but do they lose heart? Nope, their optimism is intact, their spirits strong er than ever. Individually, theyre amazing. Together, Clark and Lois are a force of nature. And Lee Weeks, an artist not associated with the Man of Steels world, draws them beautifully. The gentle strength of Superman, the indomitable presence of Lois its all there, along with the twisted Flashpoint Captain Marvel, Batman and co, looking scary as hell. In current canon, Superman and Lois are lost to one another, but this issue reminded me that the classic versions are out there, ready to be returned to us if we just want it enough. Gotham Academy, Vol. 1 Becky Cloonan, Brenden Fletcher, and Karl Kerschl (Swapna) Im a sucker for gothic mysteries. You say gothic mystery and I say WHERE GIVE IT TO ME NOWWW. So when I first picked up Gotham Academy, a YA comic with a gothic feel, I was immediately hooked. Karl Kerschls art is absolutely gorgeous, and gives the comic a moody tone. Its up to the characters to bring the fun into the comic, and they do so in an incredible way. It doesnt matter if you read other DC comics, or if you generally shy away from superheroes in your comicsthis is one you should give a try. I love the pure joy that is this comic, and am waiting for the next issue with breathless anticipation. *denotes a link to a trade that hasnt yet been released, though the first issue was released in Jan-June 2015

There are a number of discourses surrounding womenÃ¢â¬â¢s sexualities that make sexual agency difficult to achieve. I will discuss how sexist norms make practices of sexual assertiveness difficult in relation to the double standard of womenÃ¢â¬â¢s sexuality, the LGBTQ community, and educational institutions. The following aspects demonstrate this: first, a double standard exists for womenÃ¢â¬â¢s sexualities in the way that both Ã¢â¬Å"sluttyÃ¢â¬ and chaste behaviours are judged and punished. Second, while womenÃ¢â¬â¢s bisexuality is exploited for men, heteronormativity and a gender binary remain expected in relationships. Third, educational institutions use a number of tactics (e.g., victim blaming) to keep sexist norms in place. These pervasive sexist norms must continue to be questioned and systematically dismantled for both men and women to enjoy sexual autonomy. In this patriarchal society, women find practicing sexual agency difficult because there is a double standa rd that exists in which being either Ã¢â¬Å"sluttyÃ¢â¬ or chaste has negative consequences. Marilyn Frye (2004) explains this concept as the Ã¢â¬Å"double bind,Ã¢â¬ which Frye defines as Ã¢â¬Å"situations in which options are reduced to a very few and all of them expose one to penalty, censure or deprivationÃ¢â¬ (p. 184). Women cannot express their sexualities, wants, or needs in a legitimate and safe way because they will face punishment if they happen to be on either end of the continuum.

1) Ive no more business to marry Edgar Linton than I have to be in heaven; and if the wicked man in there had not brought Heathcliff so low, I shouldnt have thought of it. It would degrade me to marry Heathcliff now; so he shall never know how I love him; and that, not because hes handsome, Nelly, but because hes more myself than I am (86). Catherine admits to Ellen that she loves Heathcliff but cannot think of marrying him because he has been degraded by Hindley. Heathcliff hears this speech, and he leaves Wuthering Heights, not to return for three years. 2) Nelly, I see now, you think me a selfish wretch; but did it never strike you that if Heathcliff and I married we should be beggars? whereas, if I marry Linton, I can aidÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Then, they came to the door, and from their conversation, I judged they were about to issue out and have a walk on the moors (321).

Reaction paper: Last July 23, 2011, an orientation on disaster preparedness and prohibited dangerous drugs was held at the CE building during our NSTP. The speaker wanted to make us prepared at all times in case of natural disasters or calamities either natural or man-made. He also enlightened our minds of the possible harms drugs can do to an individual. We will write a custom essay sample on Natural Disaster and Possible Harms Drugs or any similar topic only for you Order Now When we say disaster or calamity, it is a great or sudden misfortune or catastrophe, an adverse or unfortunate event, or an occurrence that causes great distress or destruction. While preparedness means, theÃ stateÃ ofÃ havingÃ beenÃ madeÃ readyÃ orÃ preparedÃ forÃ useÃ or action. So disaster preparedness is in a state ofÃ readiness to contain theÃ effectsÃ of a forecastedÃ disastrous eventÃ to minimizeÃ lossÃ ofÃ life,Ã injury, andÃ damageÃ toÃ property, it can provide rescue, relief, rehabilitation, and otherÃ services in theÃ aftermathÃ of theÃ disaster. There are two types of disaster, natural and man-made. Natural disaster is the effect of aÃ natural hazard which leads to financial, environmental or human losses. Disasters occur when hazards meetÃ vulnerability. Natural disasters are also categorized. Examples: geological disasters Ã¢â¬â avalanche, earthquake, volcanic eruptions; hydrological disasters Ã¢â¬â floods, limnic eruptions, tsunamis and meteorological disasters: blizzards, cyclonic storms, droughts, hailstorms, heat waves, tornadoes and fires. While man-made disaster is aÃ disastrous eventÃ causedÃ directlyÃ and mainly by one or more individual on purpose also calledÃ human-made disaster. On his lecture on disaster preparedness, he told us that we must always remember the word safety. If you have the right skills that can make you safe, then thatÃ¢â¬â¢s better. In everything that you do, your attitude counts. Being flexible at all times makes it feasible for us to overcome whatever may happen. And yes, education is very crucial; having the right knowledge could help a lot. Having trainings can develop your skills and it all depends with you. If you put it all together; skill, attitude, flexibility, education, training and you, SAFETY follows. While it may be impossible to prepare for every possible scenario, the important point to remember here is to start somewhere with your own personal preparedness plan. Good preparation will lessen the impact of a disaster on our physical, mental, psychological, emotional and other spect of our human lives and love ones. He also explained to us the effects of dangerous drugs to us and that we should avoid taking such. Take note of the acronym DRUG Ã¢â¬â danger, route, unto, grave. A drug may be helpful or harmful. The effects of drugs can vary depending upon the kind of drug taken, how much is taken, how often it is used, how quickly it gets to the brain, and what other drugs, food, or substances are taken at the same time. Effects can also vary based on the differences in body size, shape, and chemistry. Some teens believe drugs will help them think better, be more popular, stay more active, or become better athletes. Others are simply curious and figure one try wonÃ¢â¬â¢t hurt. Others want to fit in. A few use drugs to gain attention from their parents. Many teens use drugs because theyÃ¢â¬â¢reÃ depressedÃ or think drugs will help them escape their problems. The truth is, drugs donÃ¢â¬â¢t solve problems Ã¢â¬â they simply hide feelings and problems. When a drug wears off, the feelings and problems remain, or become worse. Drugs can ruin every aspect of a personÃ¢â¬â¢s life. This orientation indeed has given us knowledge which may help not only us, but also other people in the future. How to cite Natural Disaster and Possible Harms Drugs, Papers
