Around 1903 when my parent's died to survive, my brother, Andrew, and I began to perform a musical act on the streets of Chattanooga. I sang and my brother accompanied me on the guitar, often in front of the White Elephant Saloon. In 1912, when Clarence my older brother returned to Chattanooga, he persuaded the managers of his troupe, Lonnie and Cora Fisher, to give me an audition. Consequently, I was hired as a dancer with the Moses Stokes Company, to perform in a show that included the Mother of the Blues, Ma Rainey. Intriguing rumors surround our meeting—legend has it that Ma Rainey literally kidnapped me, that she and her husband forced me to tour with their show, teaching me in the process how to sing the blues. Some rumors say we had
Madera High is an ordinary high school in a fairly small town of about 60,000 people. Although the usual picture of bullying portrayed in the media does not occur here, there are still other forms of bullying and harassment that happen often. Cyberbullying has become the new form of harassment that teens use to bully other students. Social media is now the platform bullies prefer to use rather than the physical confrontation that bullying used to be. Through recent years, it has become an epidemic that has taken over the internet and social networks. It has made it even harder for students to get away from the bully or the person harassing them. At Madera High the amount of bullying seen at school by other students and staff is fairly low,
Hi Octavia. I also stated some of the same challenges you stated. It’s hard finding a balance between work, family, and studying. You want to be able to interact with your family once you leave work, but your focus should be on reading the next chapter. With me I can get side tracked easily. I’ll end up helping my little girl with her work and then she’ll want to go out for dinner or to play. Once I start to interact with her I lose track of everything. When everything is over, I have to go to bed for work. It’s hard but you have to have self-control. I must say in the past when I was taking online classes I had a great support team. My boyfriend was very understanding and supportive. Someone from my class was always available. It was a great
I am currently a 3rd year nursing student at Ryerson University and have recently become extremely interested in physiotherapy. This summer, I had the amazing opportunity to work with the University Health Network as a Patient Observer, where I was able to discuss with many physiotherapists about the nature of their jobs. Every physiotherapist spoke with the utmost positivity when discussing their position even after numerous years of practice. This inspired me to pursue my goal of becoming a physiotherapist in the future as it is something I am very passionate about.
My Yiayia is a very special person to just about everyone who knows her. She loves to talk about her memories and experiences of when she was younger. During the interview I was able to hear even more wonderful stories from her past. She was in high school during the 1950s, she grew up in a small poor neighborhood with brick streets, one high school, one factory everyone would work out once they graduated highschool, and one drug/grocery store. She remembers there was a soda machine at the drugstore where people from her school went to socialize but she was never allowed to. Her parents were immigrants from Turkey making her cultural background very important in her life, she was very sheltered throughout her school years, and her family's

Hi Micquaya. When I think of mental health itself, I do not automatically think of people that are suffering from a psychological issue. Mental health to me is just your psychological status. Mental illness causes me to think a psychological issue. The two are not the same in my eyes. Mental health is just as important as physical health. Physical health is just the status but if I were to say a physical disability it is completely different. The ways to promote good mental health are numerous. Taking care of your body is definitely a good way. Many times our mental status is directly related to our physical health. I know for me, it is hard to think clear when I do not get enough sleep.
Hi Margairia, your story is like so many others that was affected by cancer. Some of us are not educated on it until it affects someone near to use. Cancer is a horrible disease that will affect us all one way or another. My uncle that passed this week, his cancer started off in the bone. Then we were told it had spread to his mouth where it also began to have tumors in as well. The number of things that cancer does to one’s mind and body is indescribable. This pushes me more to maintain a healthy lifestyle so that my children can continue to carry it out.

I read your post and I was fascinated, I can understand your way of thinking and you values. It’s nice to know that their still people that are transcendence and believe that life should beautiful without bad and negative stuff around them. Being a grateful person is good because, you feel full of life and be able to obtain your goals. I gree with you about forgiveness values, I think that a lot of people experience that in their life, I am want of them, I don’t like to hate that a word that I don’t said and don’t think of it. I just put the negative in the same but I don’t forget, I learned to be alert. Great post.
As a witty and outgoing Gemini, Raquela is a great addition to the batch. Jamming to throwback songs from pop rock to old school hip hop gets her in the mood and super enthusiastic. The friendship bond she has made throughout the years has become a support system for her to get through some difficult high school days. She’s a very honest person and its one of her best qualities. She is keen on subjects such as Biology, Chemistry and Psychology and aims to be a med school graduate in the near future. Also, we can’t forget to mention her love for her pet
You make a valid point, which is to discern why the evaluation is being used. Can you share the way the program introduced the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale-Revised Edition? If they agency you work for didn’t how would you introduce it?
In this situation, I would go over to the student and sit with them. The goal of Orientation is to make sure that all students feel like they are a part of the Merrimack community. To accomplish this goal, we make sure that no students feel like they are alone. While sitting with the student, I would talk to them about their interest, how they are liking Merrimack, and ask them if there is anything I could do to help
Hi Scarlett. I think that this type of behavior from adults still exist in our society. From my point of view I think that the adults that use this process of thinking just need to be educated. If I was to hear this type of saying I would voice my opinion by saying that we as adults should appreciate each child unique interest and learning abilities. I will also say that who to say that one day that boy child will become a father and need to know how to perform certain tasks to help fulfilled household duties and the other way around. Our textbook mention that children need stress free playing and learning environment to help promote safe and healthy developmental skills ( The Young Child Development from Prebirth Through Age Eight, n.d).
