The Dangers of Playing Violent Video Game


We all actually know how harmful violent video games are. violent video games are realy dangerous and they have negative effects. Many murderers and killers were violent video players. The government must make selling violent video games prohibited. That will actually help us to protect out children specifically and raise them in a real way. However, we should encourage them to do other activities such as sport games. Also, all teachers and parents must teach children not to hurt any one with any kind of weapon. Finally, our children are our responsibility; we should take care of them because they are society's future.

Summary:

When Natasha Stele who comes from Australia, want to spread herself and foreign culture while she is in Japan. But her work place which names Nova was collapsed. So she lost her job and worry about her life. For many foreigners, to teach English in Japan is really traditional. But the Nova’s situation got worth so it is hard to get job for foreigners. The Nova which famous English chain was established by Nozomu Sahashi in 1981when he finished his study in Paris. After later, in April 2005, things was changed by many bad incidents. The students accused the school and pay back their tuition. The government lead to suspension of Nova, which suffered ,any students and their tuition.

Nevertheless, Nova’s nightmare didn’t finish at all. Lawyers seek for bad things. Sahashi did insider trading and embezzlement and so on. After all, Nova can’t find the sponsor, it face insolvency. Finally, this incident will involve foreigner will involve with foreign languages and society. Then educational system said that foreigners need to take the proficiency test which is based on US educational.

Reaction:

I know this incident but I’m not sure about it. In Japan, this was really bad incident for many Japanese students. They had to seek for Nova to pay back their tuition. Also one of my friend was damaged this problem. She learned in Nova and also she paid her tuition before Nova would collapse. In her case, she could get her tuition but most of the people couldn’t get their money. Many foreigners lost their job and worry about their life in Japan. I also learned English from foreigner but not same school. I thought that was terrible problem. If my teacher would be this situation and he lost his job, what should I do? I thought. For foreigner, to get the job in Japan is not easy way. And also to get regular job is more hard in Japan. If many foreigner are interested in Japan, culture, and languages, I would be happy. Although this incident lost foreigners wish, I hope that many foreigners like Japan and other things. I hope many foreigners don’t be regret this.

Reaction:

 

Fashion looks like very pretty, but fashion has some potential problems. For example, everyone thinks fashion stores can earn much money, but it’s not true because it spends a lot of cost for making advertisements, hiring models and designers. Moreover, sometimes fashion stores should offer their producers to some fashion shows or celebrities. However, I tell myself if I had opportunities to relate fashion, I would know what the fashion is first because fashion has to care design more. Actually, I will study fashion design in S.I.U.C after I graduate C.E.S.L. Also, I read some news and articles which are related by fashion; therefore, I afraid of fashion now. There are too many potential problems that I can’t figure out. For example, fashion can’t provide whatever they want to show because they need to follow customer habits. Although, I knew that I still want to try to create my own brand and stores, I also have to consider that how to attract customers buying my producers. In summary, fashion is not very sublime. Even though, fashion attracts any people to pay money for getting clothes, it still has some problems about the cost. We only one thing you can believe that fashion’s stuff will be popular forever.

Chinese Hackers Infiltrate U.S. Air Force Striker Jet Program-LE



Chinese Hackers Infiltrate U.S. Air Force Striker Jet Program


Summary:


Suman Srinivasan’s article entitled “Chinese Hackers Infiltrate U.S. Air Force Striker Jet Program” discusses as a result of the invasion of hackers, to prevent further confusion senior U.S. government decided to develop a network security system to protect the government and the private network security. The Wall Street Journal points out that China is suspected of hacking into computer systems of the United States. These included the Joint Strike Fighter program, whose partners were Israel and a few other European countries and F-35 Lightning II fighter jet plan. The hackers infiltrated the data which related to design and electronics systems to copy and steal. The Obama administration has done something to change the situation, such as expand the $17 billion program for cyber-security. However, they also worried about the security of the network system.


Reaction:


Hackers, infiltrating the system were the problem since the computer appeared. With the development of computer technology hacker’s skills have become stronger and stronger. More and more people can use computers with serious technology. For instance, all the people have blogs. We can change the theme by ourselves. It has a choice: edit as Html. We can use the program language to change the background, colors, music, and everything that you want to edit. If it is 5 years ago, this technology just would be used by computer staffs. There are a large number of talented people who are so young and so creative all over the world. I heard news: a boy, 11 years old, used his pc to infiltrate the system of the China Bank. Certainly, he was taken to juvenile prison. After that, a lot of computer companies invited him. This is the power of knowledge. :)

According to Linda Toll in her article, "Music therapy as stroke therapy," music therapy has a good effect on stroke patients. First, music connects with the brain, so it is especially good for stroke patients. For this reason, music therapy allow them to get better feeling and to adapt themselves to the social circumstance. Moreover, recently it shows that music therapy is getting better united with traditional therapy to stroke patients. Nonetheless, some scientists say that music therapy and people's emotion can't connect with each other exactly. However, some people agree with music therapy's ability through their experiments including Nayak. In conclusion, music therapy has wonderful influence on patients, especially brain problem patient.

When I was in university, I made a presentation about prenatal music. Actually, after I gave the presentation, I thought about my future job. My father is a pastor. His focus is old people. Therefore, I wanted to help his work, so I wanted to be a music therapist. At that time, when I said my opinion, he respected my opinion. However, he said that "you can also help me by piano performance." For this reason, I have been studying here. After I finish CESL, I want to study my major at SIU. In addition, after I finish at SIU, I want to help my father's work by piano performance and music therapy. In conclusion, I didn't know the musical benefits exactly. However, after I read this article, I know about music therapy's importance. I think that music is the best present from God! I love my major!

Computer Pain

Pope-Gajic. O,(2001, Oct. 1) Computer Pain. Suite101.com retrieved on April. 10, 2009 from : http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/phsical_therapy/81278/2

Summary

According to the author, she states that if you use computer a long time, you must feel tired and get some physical problems such as low back pain, horrible pain, and so on. Ergonomic problems, which include Carpal tunnel syndrome and aching back, have been increasingly common in modern society; however, nobody has noticed what the causes are. First, in general we don't think that we have any physical problems in our bodies, but routine position and routine life undermine our bodies, especially computer work. On the other hand, we have solutions to ease this pain.According to the article, treatment is very simple. The author suggests we should do proper exercise, take some medicine and keep god posture. In addition, sometimes we need physical therapy, which can provide stretching, evaluation and correct exercises for our problems. If we do this constantly, we will be fine. In conclusion, money is important, but you can't do anything without your health.

Reaction

In present-day life, computer is one of the necessities of life. Moreover, we can do anything through internet. On the other hand, computer often causes some physical disease. It is clear current research reports many articles about computer pain. I'm interested in these diseases, because physical therapists have been active in this field recently. That is why I chose this article. I think physical therapy deeply relates to problems, which are caused by modern society.Next, I want to talk about computer pain as well. In my opinion, approximately most people have the problem of computer pain in their life, because computer has been widespread all over the world. Computer pain is a serious problem, but nobody is aware of it. I think it is a more serious problem than computer pain itself. I want to say something as a physical therapist. If people can become aware of this problem, they can treat it by themselves. Then, they must remove the pain finally. Proper exercise gives us a good body and reduces stress, but if you don't pay close attention to your body, your computer pain will never recover I think. It will be chronic pain. I have to protect people from these diseases of modern society as a physical therapist.
