1. In terms of research and scholarship, Sima Qian is quite closer to Herodotus, as he had an inclination to trust in anecdotes and word-of-mouth without confirming them with concrete historical evidence (Manning 33).

They are usually referred as human machines and imitate one aspect or another in a human being. They play a vital role in the ongoing activities in this world, as well as outside the planet earth. Usually, robots tend to be crucial in undertaking hard tasks that are either dangerous or harmful to the human kind, tasks that involve harsh conditions e.g. hot temperatures, lack of oxygen among others are handed over to the robots.

Self-evaluation: Strengths and weaknesses exhibited in my writings.
It is my pleasure to announce that taking this English 102 was a good experience for me.

My writing was unreadable (my teacher in Minnesota in 2009 used to say), but as you read now, you will find more sense in my writing. I totally appreciate your help to improve my writing in this class. I completed two works for English 102 at Wright State University: “The Usage of Business” and “Effects of Sexual Media in Youth”. In the process of writing these two works, I faced several challenges which have led to the weaknesses seen in my writing. My strengths are proof to how different writing strategies have helped me. Through this class I have improved my ability to think and write critically which has prepared me for writing in my field of study; Finance. Read more

The term trauma is used to describe the painful and distressing situations experienced by a person. Most people do not express trauma explicitly. Identifying the traumatized individual, therefore, is a hectic process. This is even more difficult if there is a weak relationship between the traumatized individual and the physician. While in an internship, I had a chance to work with a family whom they had been exposed to traumatic conditions for several years. The family was composed of the grandmother, Sarah, who was aged 49 and mentally retarded, the mother, Jasmin, aged 23 and with low IQ, the father, John, aged 25 and addicted to drugs and to daughter, Kelly and Janie, who were both aged 15months and 2years old consecutively. During my first encounter with the family, I was doing my normal chores of assisting the family in medical applications, job hunting, and financial assistance.
