Reflecting on your childhood, what types of barriers/disparities existed that limited your ability to lead a healthier life? Were there any short-term or long-term consequences?
I lived in North Philadelphia when I was younger. There were many ways the community was not healthy, but one thing that is important to note is safety. Olney district of Philadelphia has one of the highest crimes in Philadelphia. Shootings, child molestations, and theft were common in the area, which limited me to lead a healthier life. My brother and I stayed inside our home watching television often, which limited the ability for us to lead a healthier life. Before rise of the crime, my brother and I always played in the neighbor, rode our bikes, and went to the park right behind our house. We met a lot of the neighborhood kids, and got our daily exercise from playing. The short-term consequence was lack of socialization and heavy boredom. Both of our parents worked all day, and our grandmother took care of us most of the time. Since the crimes started, it was difficult to stay outside the neighborhood and talk to our friends, as well as, utilize the park and bikes. I believe the crimes also started to build up anxiety and fear within the community, including us, and there were more stress, anger, frustration due to the crimes. In the long run, we moved to the suburbs, with more green area and kids our age to play “again”, and my parents felt stress free within the safe community development.
THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Mathematics is a very important subject. The effect of Mathematics in our daily struggles in life is very evident. Everything involves Mathematics that is why Mathematics is very important on the part of the students to study. Over the years, schools have always been concerned with the development of effective learning experience for the learners. It is generally accepted that the quality of education students get largely dependent upon the quality of instruction they are given. There is then a necessity to use better teaching strategies in all levels of learning especially in Mathematics.
A Mathematics teacher must be very creative in his methods and approaches in teaching. He is expected to possess a thorough knowledge of the criteria of good teaching and the subject matter to be taught, a broad knowledge of various methods and strategies of teaching different kinds of students with the aid of the appropriate visual aids and techniques (Aquino, 1998).
Innovative strategies and other interventions should be applied inside the classroom to help the students deal with the difficult learning areas in Mathematics. Modules, drills and other purposeful activities should be employed to motivate and let students enjoy and learn the hard topics (Muir 2005). Aside from the utilization of the different strategies, Mathematics educators should continually search for new approaches and...

Some of the modules in notepad are Module1: File Module File module contains set of instruction which are used to create / open / Print a text document. File module is used to do operations such as NEW, OPEN, SAVE, PRINT, EXIT. NEW: It create a new buffer in memory. It receives input from user after creating the buffer. It stores the input temporarily in buffer in series of bits. OPEN It create a new buffer in memory & loads the content of the file into the buffer. It receives input from user and append it to the buffer. It stores the input temporarily in buffer in series of bits. SAVE PRINT It forwards the content of buffer to the printing service. EXIT It terminate the program itself & invoke a system call to unload the program from memory. Module 2: Edit Module Edit Module is used to modify the content of buffer (document). Edit Module is used to do operations such as COPY / PASTE / FIND / REPLACE / DELETE the content of buffer COPY It copy the selected content to the clipboard. Clipboard is a temporary buffer used to hold a collection of data / path / link. It saves the content of buffer to the permanent storage. It stores the content buffer in series of bits to the permanent storage. Buffer content are in the form of series of bits. It converts those bits into data and allows the OS...

A 911 operator is not that of a popular job with a low annual salary. They do piles of paper work as well as completing multiple tedious task while having to stay calm in stressful situations which I could do if I had to but I would not be too happy with myself if I became one, because I strive to be better and go higher then just working in a small room all day answering phone calls. I know that this job is extremely important and somebody has to do it but its just not for me.
