Reaction Paper: The Interlude
College Composition I
October 30, 2013.
Return of The Tiger The Interlude is a story that reveals how a person cannot get away from what he or she did in the past because other persons remember and behave as if the past must never die. The Author did a good job at the description of the characters, which helped the reader better understand the roles they play in the story.
The main character of this story, Willis, a hostile desperado, who was known as ‘The Tiger’ but the tiger in him tamed after spending two years jail term. Another important character in the story is Little John, a fearless brave man, who liked to act bad but had never been to jail. Little John was a brave desperado unlike the other desperadoes, he feared nothing, not even the almighty Tiger. It took two years of hunger, brutality and pains from the warders to tame fearless Willis. This shows the consequence of one’s acts considered as fixing one’s lot, in the future existence. Experiencing what has been done to others like torture, bullying and brutality teaches a lot of lesson of morals and how to treat people.
Willis got back to San Fernando with a fearful heart but two years made a difference to the town, which seemed more open and spread out. The fear in Willis heart had died down perhaps because no one recognized him or some had forgiven him and left the past behind them. All the same, he felt guilt, tension, discomfort, sense of shame.
He stood by the orange-stall to refresh himself, then little John walked right behind him calling ‘tiger’ causing a stir by everyone on the street. Willis heart dropped and the tiger in him came out once again because he needed to protect himself, so he grabbed a knife from the orange- vendor and drove it between Little John’s ribs, blood gushed out and Willis was arrested again. Everyone used Willis past to judge him without getting to know the new...
...to talk to more and make that daily connection with even if it is just sharing something as small as, buying a really cute shirt on sale. The connection between a mother and daughter is visceral and it does not matter whether she lives next door, in another state, or if she is even still alive. Tannen also touched on something that I personally felt was more of the connection between my oldest daughter and myself. Instead of that yearning for such intimate communication, there is also that visceral pain that some daughters seem to have and blame their mothers for, the idea that “I owe this all to my mother.” I can recall the smallest remarks sparking the most significant response or outbursts as an adolescent and now I see the same reaction in my daughter as well. Tannen hit the nail on the head when she described some interactions like, “having to watch every word, like walking on eggshells” (Tannen, 2006) She also brought up something I never really gave much thought to, the difference between the message and the meta-message. She describes it by saying that the message is something that everyone can agree on, the literal or dictionary message, but the meta-message is how the message is perceived. For example, I could tell my daughter something to the effects of, “ I am really proud of you for bringing up your grades!” How I meant that was, I am genuinely proud, but how she would take it would be more along the lines of, “What so you were never proud...

It is not easy to describe yourself and to be truly honest. The way you think of yourself and how another person might think of you could be completely different. This class has helped me to understand myself better and accurately describe me.
If I had to describe myself, I would say that I am very laid back and easy going. I do not let small things bother me. I feel you should “pick your battles” sort of speak. I think I take after my mom. Growing up I never saw her really angry at anyone. She always gets a long with everyone and I think she rubbed off on me. I am also friendly and caring. I am always concerned with how people feel and how I can help others. I enjoy talking and being around all different types of people. Another word I would use to describe myself is hard-working. I always put 100% in everything I do. I like having a sense of accomplishment. I value friends, family, loyalty, and honesty and surround myself with people who also value these things.
I do have a few concerns with myself however. Although I consider being able to trust people to be a good trait, being to trustworthy may be a bad thing. I feel that I can be to trustworthy at times. I trust everyone until he or she gives me a reason not to trust them. I feel that it is important to know if people are honest and trustworthy and I give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I have...
Mediactive, Chapters 1, 2, & 3
In today’s media world, we have the ability to access innumerable amounts of information. Such accessibility provides a positive impact on our lives, but at the same time leaves us vulnerable in conforming to information that is not trustworthy and false. We must not be passive when we are subjected to the various types of media, we must be active. Meaning we must analyze the information at hand and use our reason to come to a conclusion as to whether or not the information is factual. As I began reading Chapter 1 in Mediactive by Dan Gillmor, I was presented with an email that informed me of a discussion between Lt. Col. Oliver North and senator Al Gore. I found myself in acceptance with the information the email provided. I was so intrigued over the fact that Osama Bin Laden had been a threat to Americans since 1987. As I continued reading the material I came to find out that the email was just a form of propaganda. I was so surprised when I found out this email was fiction, and must not trust any information unless it’s backed up by a verifiable source. This made me think back to when I was in my good old Middle School days. I would trust information presented to me by my friends, never questioning if the information was trustworthy or not. Since there is an abundance of information present in the world, as I previously noted, we must be active participants in order to manage this...
...an object falling from the top, and sometimes the helmet cracks, that’s why we wore an helmet. Before we go to the production he lecture us a little information of what is azucarera is, after that we fall in line and go to the production, we first see the truck of sugarcane where falling from a hole, then after that we go to the production site, and there we can see how they create a sugar, I noticed again that some of the construction worker are not wearing proper PPE or personal protective equipment, and they also don’t have hazard signs, I think some of their machines are dangerous to approach, some of the machine are not lecture to us, we just exceeded some of them, that’s why we don’t know what machine and description.
The positive of this, is when we’re in production all of the construction worker and other stuff there welcome us with a smile and there so kind when there touring us to the production site, even the construction worker are telling us what machine is their handling, and they even approach us near to see the machines. Much of the sugar comes from tarlac. That’s why we should be proud of this.
Same of the enerrtech, here in azucarera, their not wearing proper PPE or personal protective equipment, the company should be aware of this, there should be thinking of their employees health or safety, because most of them are not proper...
Psych 102 ReactionPaper #1
Northern Illinois University
The first article “Even Geniuses Work Hard” was generally about the two different ways in how people observe intelligence and learning, fixed and growth mindset. Students with a fixed mindset do not like work. They believe that if you have the skill then everything should come logically. Students with a growth mindset are more likely to respond to original problems by continuing to be involved, trying new tactics, and using all the resources at their power for knowledge. These two mindsets lead to different school behaviors. For one example, once students see intelligence as fixed, they have a habit of valuing the look of being smart above everything else. They may sacrifice significant chances to study—even those that are vital to their future educational achievement—if those occasions involve them to risk performing below par or acknowledging deficiencies. Instead students with a growth mindset view stimulating work as a chance to learn and develop. Mostly, students with a fixed mindset have a habit of not handling setbacks as well as that of a growth mindset.
I actually enjoyed reading Gweck’s article, I thought it was fascinating. Originally, I believed that I was a person with a “growth mindset.” Even though I believe that I think like an individual with a growth mindset, I possess some behaviors of that with a fixed mindset, meaning that I tend not...

Diosdado Macapagal was born on September 28, 1910, in Lubao, Pampanga, the second of four children in a poor family. His father, Urbano Macapagal, was a poet who wrote in the local Pampangan language, and his mother, Romana Pangan Macapagal, was a schoolteacher who taught catechism. He is a distant descendant of Don Juan Macapagal, a prince of Tondo, who was a great-grandson of the last reigning Rajah of Selurong, Rajah Lakandula. The family earned extra income by raising pigs and accommodating boarders in their home. Due to his roots in poverty, Macapagal would later become affectionately known as the "Poor boy from Lubao". Diosdado Macapagal was also a reputed poet in the Spanish language although his poet work was eclipsed by his political biography.
Macapagal excelled in his studies at local public schools, graduating valedictorian at Lubao Elementary School, and salutatorian at Pampanga High School. He finished his pre-law course at the University of the Philippines, then enrolled at Philippine Law School in 1932, studying on a scholarship and supporting himself with a part-time job as an accountant. While in law school, he gained prominence as an orator and debater. However, he was forced to quit schooling after two years due to poor health and a lack of money.
Returning to Pampanga, he joined boyhood friend Rogelio de la Rosa in producing and starring in Tagalog operettas patterned...
