The Crime Drop and Low Crime Rates
Module #1 Assignment/ The Crime Drop and Low Crime Rates Lydia Cruz The empirical evidence tells us a lot about what is happening with crime each year by showing an approximate percentage of the crimes committed. The empirical evidence changes every year that surveys are entered by police or other poles. These statistics are not whole heartedly true because a lot of crimes do not get reported. There are different diagrams you can look at depending what types of crimes you are looking for and by locations. For example, in the second chart, given to us in our first module, it shows us that crime in America has decreased though this is only information that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has collected from precincts. The crime drop in the 1990’s can be blamed on few factors like under reporting of crimes actually committed along with other reasons.
Living With Iron Deficiency Anemia
It has come to my attention not to long ago that most people do NOT know anything about anemia and how difficult it can actually be to live with it on the daily basis. According to the Mayo Clinic definition anemia is a condition where the blood doesn't have enough red cells, dysfunctional red blood cells, which leads to the flow of oxygen to the organs to be reduced. You are probably thinking about how these people are even alive and functioning in society, right? Well, we are some what perfectly fine, just very tired. The truth is, if you don't get your blood tested chances are you won't even know you are anemic. The symptoms you get from this disease seem almost normal if you have a full time job, go to school, lack sleep, or simply don't always have scheduled meal times. Though there are different types of anemia, for the sake of my brain, we are simply going to stick to iron deficiency anemia, its symptoms and ways to combat it.
Becoming Who We Are
Let me start by telling you that I have always been told exactly who I have to be and who I was suppose to become. I grew up in a strict home with a single mother and five other siblings. My mother always held really strong standards for me, like she only expected me to get A's in school and anything less was worthless and embarrassing. All I heard growing was how I was going to be a great nurse, doctor, or lawyer and simply someone with some sort of college degree. Well, that was simply all that I didn't want to become.
Why Do People Become Criminals?
There are several questions that surround this earth, and one major question I have heard throughout the years is: “why do people become criminals?" It could be a question answered, and simple as “people don’t understand right from wrong,” but it is so much deeper than that. A lot of individuals relate violence with religions, poverty, adrenalin, gangs, and many other things. However, there are also theories that believe that some individuals become criminals due to their genetics. If there are a variety of theories of why people become criminals, it makes it difficult to focus on only one area. Therefore, my primary focus will remain on the idea that your habitat, way of life, and thinking process influences the person you become.
As a woman, not a lot of men tend to believe when we say we know a little bit—if not a whole bunch—about vehicles. Which, I guess in our current world, men don’t expect women to know much about anything. Yet, like women, not all men know the first thing about vehicles or how to maintain them. Personally, in my relationship, neither of us know much about vehicles, but needless to say, I know more. No, I don’t know how to change rotors, breaks, or much of anything, but unlike my man, I at least know when it's time to start paying attention and get things checked. There are a lot of things I know that make sense, like I know when it's time to change the oil but I don’t know the first thing about coming about it.
No matter who you are or what you do, stress will always be part of everyone’s life. However, not everyone deals with it the same way. Some people cry, others listen to music, and I take naps. I don’t know the perfect way to deal with stress, but practicing breathing exercises helps a lot too. I personally was never told how to handle stress, it was just something that was never mentioned or really shown in my family.
To My Child
To my child who is not yet born: there are many things that I wish for you now and on every single day after your arrival. Yet, life is not easy and the people in this world make it so much more difficult, but I wish you a good heart and soul. I am not a saint, which you will come to realize that I am not perfect and I will make many mistakes. However, I wish that you are stronger and distinguish right from wrong. As you grow, you will realize the little that we have, but my wish for you is that you realize family and love is the only thing that matters. My baby boy, I am very scared that I will do something that causes you sadness or pain. My wish for you is to understand that I’m only doing the best that I can. My tiny love, you are the greatest little thing to ever happen to me after twenty two years. Having you within me is a true gift from God. I truly wish you do best by us both. My child the world is a great adventure, but with every adventure comes danger so always protect yourself. I hope and really wish that you become a great man that protects, loves, cherishes and enjoys his family. No one is perfect, not on this Earth, not I, not your dad, and definitely not our families. Always and always remember that just because they’re family doesn’t mean that they have the right to hurt you. My baby, this world is full of love and great people and those that are the opposite, my dear please don’t lock your heart away after one heartache, for that can be rather painful.
Learning and Study Strategies Inventory
First of all, let’s face it, college is not always the best time of our lives. And if you are like me and come from a small town, it’s a huge change. Sometimes college shows you how much your bad study habits can fail you really quickly and that change is required to succeed. Many students believe that no one knows them better than they know themselves, and that only they can determine how they study. When a student gets told their study strategies are out of line, or are not really working for them, it’s hard to accept it and even change the habits that one has. However, after taking the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI) I can’t be completely sure how well I know myself when it comes to studying. The LASSI report showed me how much I lack different strategies to be good at studying. I never knew how much fixing up I needed.
Living With Your Best Friend
As children we grow up watching how “happily ever after” turns out and it’s always the most romantic thing ever. We find grace and beauty when the prince rescues the princess, marries her and lives a long happy life. Since our first Snow White tale and Cinderella fantasy, we start to imagine our lives with our true “Prince Charming” and how life will be forever after. However, our wonderful movie creators and authors forget to mention a lot about how living with someone can be stressful and how life isn’t as easy as wishing upon a star.
Heroes are believed to be made up by children, however there are such things as heroes. In our beloved country, there are men and women who protect us all, these people are known to be from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), but before they had that title they were known by many others. According to The Free Dictionary by Farlex, the definition of the FBI is (1) “a federal law enforcement agency that is the principal investigative arm of the Department of Justice.” (T.S.) Yet, they wouldn’t be the agents they are if it wasn’t for the hero who started if all, Attorney General Charles Bonaparte.
