2. “The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, Ron, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty” (57).

One of the art pieces that were being focused on was Walter Henry Williams’ oil on canvas painting, “A Quick Nap”. His piece titled ‘ A Quick Nap ‘ stood out to me along my browse throughout the museum. Its interesting color scheme grabbed me; I believed there was a tale to the story.
In “Waking Up and Taking Charge,” Anya Kamenetz is persuading us to ignite the flame and fight for our rights as students. Young adults need to stop focusing on global issues and start focusing on problems regarding their personal and financial lives. It is important that students put a freeze on global issues and better things for themselves while they are in school, because it will help them in the long run. “Waking Up and Taking Charge” seems to be about pushing young adults to be selfish toward their own problems, but it is really about students taking a stand and fighting for their political views by focusing on problems that have yet to be addressed. “Adultescents” should fight for better lower tuition costs and better financial aid to help them financially, and should work together to bring these situations to light.

Alarm fatigue is a growing national problem within the health care industry that links medical technology as a serious hazard that poses a significant threat to patient safety within hospitals across the country. Alarm fatigue occurs when nurses encounter an overwhelming amount of alarms thus becoming desensitized to the firing alarms. Alarm desensitization is a multifaceted issue that is related to the number of alarming medical devices, a high false alarm rate, and the lack of alarm standardization in hospitals today (Cvach, 2012). Desensitization can lead to delayed response times, alarms silenced or turned off, or alarms adjusted to unsafe limits, which can create a dangerous situation for the patient. Alarm fatigue

Bay Area locals, Guy Fox, deliver a feel good album, Night Owl, that could possibly sum up the direction of this past summer's sound, alongside with a good look into the future of new music, as the seasons change.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) developed what is known as: “The Back to Sleep Campaign”. The campaign provides education regarding safe sleeping measures among infants. One of the most important implementations to prevent sudden infant death syndrome is putting infants to sleep on their backs.

I agree with his analysis because I believe people should make something of their life. Try things that you’re interested in and who know what it will lead you into. In my opinion I feel like people shouldn’t do anything and make a memory. If you don’t do anything the day will go by slow. If you do something that you enjoy doing time will go by fast but yet amazing and you wouldn’t try to prolong days.
Eric Whitacre, a brilliant composer of choral music, wrote the selection or song I chose titled Sleep. The title basically is announcing that the piece will be about the act or portrayal of sleep told by the narrator which is Eric Whitacre. I believe he wrote this to mimic how one would fall asleep, or the process of sleepiness. The way Whitacre defines things as you go to sleep, makes him seem that he has a personal influence on it. The tone of this work is innocent yet dark, an example is the word choice he used such as "dreams yet can become both dark and deep." Yet the steam that re-occurs through the whole piece is patience and serenity showed by the calming words and repetitive of the word "sleep."
Next Smith tells the reader about the different types of time robbers that are in people’s lives that stop them from completing events throughout the day. The two lists are described as Group A: Imposed on Us, and Group B: Self-inflicted. Group A consists of things like interruptions, overworking, and conflicting priorities. Group B lists things like Fatigue, Socializing, and Indecision. Smith explains that some of the robbers are avoidable, but there are others that are beyond a person’s control. Finally, Smith finishes with explaining that “Urgent” Does Not Mean “Vital”. He explains that urgencies in one’s life are not priorities; the urgencies act on the priorities. There is a difference between important tasks and urgencies. Smith explains that the way to identify the vital activities is to make them important is to make a way to add them to everyday
A good night's sleep just might be the key to making it through any non-fiction essay, no matter how good or bad, and still having the energy to take a lap around the nearest track afterwards. It is more than likely that a serious lack of sleep is a huge contributing factor as to why falling asleep on this stack of papers seems a lot more tempting than reading them.

On January 20th, 1993, African American poet, Maya Angelou, delivered On the Pulse of Morning at the first inauguration of President Bill Clinton. She made history that day by not only being African American but the second American to deliver a speech at a presidential inauguration. On the Pulse of the Morning signifies evolution, growth, and freedom for our country. Maya uses eternal motifs such as a tree, river, and a rock to solicit the eternal change in history.
