Ang Kabayo at ng Kalabaw (Kathang-Isip)
Isang magsasaka ang nais manirahan sa ibang bayan kaya isang araw ay inipon niya ang kanyang mga gamit at inilulan sa kanyang alagang kabayo at kalabaw. Maaga pa ay sinimulan na nila ang mahabang paglalakbay. Makaraan ang ilang oras ay nakaramdam ng matinding pagod at pang- hihina ang kalabaw dahil sa bigat ng kanyang pasang gamit.

"Kaibigang kabayo, di hamak na mas mabigat ang pasan kong gamit keysa sa iyo. Maaari bang tulungan mo ako at pasanin mo yung iba?" pakiusap ng kalabaw.

"Aba, yan ang ipinataw sa iyong balikat ng ating amo kaya pagtiisan mo," anang kabayo na lalo pang binilisan ang paglalakad.

"Parang awa mo na tulungan mo ako. Di ko na kakayanin ang bigat ng dala ko. Nanghihina ako. Alam mo namang kailangan kong magpalamig sa ilog kapag ganito katindi ang init ng araw dahil madaling mag-init ang katawan ko," pakiusap pa rin ng kalabaw.

"Bahala ka sa buhay mo," naiinis na sagot ng kabayo.

Makaraan pa ang isang oras at lalung tumindi ang init ng araw. Hindi nagtagal at ang kalabaw ay iginupo ng bigat ng kanyang dala at siya ay pumanaw.

Nang makita ng magsasaka ang nagyari ay kinuha niya ang lahat ng gamit na pasan ng kalabaw at inilipat sa kabayo na bahagya namang makalakad dahil sa naging napakabigat ng kanyang mga dalahin.

"Kung tinulungan ko sana si kasamang kalabaw ay hindi naging ganito kabigat ang pasan ko ngayon," may pagsisising bulong ng kabayo sa

...Reflect Reflecting on Better Christian Means   REFLECTION PAPER I. Introduction There are many that would argue that there is no God. They would argue that the Bible is just another book, and Jesus is just another man. They would most likely tell you that they outgrew Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and God, a very long time ago. So what is it that makes a believer different? What makes us think that we are right, and that the others are wrong? I believe it to be a question of authority. I believe that the Bible is a book of absolute authority. If that is in fact the case that would mean that Jesus has walked on this earth, and He will come again. So if I believe that the Bible has authority, and Jesus has been here and is coming again, is there a way that I should act because of this knowledge? I believe that there is. I will try to explain my beliefs and what I have learned, through this paper. II. Does the Bible have authority? There is a very simple and quite easy to understand answer to this question. Yes! I will tell you that although it is a simple answer; coming to that conclusion can be more difficult. There seems to be almost as many questions created by the Bible, as there are answers in it. If studied though, even by a non-believer, the Bible becomes an answer unto itself. The Old Testament predicts many things that happen in the New Testament and beyond. It predicts the birth of...

Nursing Reflection

...Community Health Nursing Reflection Community health nursing is a specialty field of nursing which care is provided to people in the community setting. A community health nurse can provide care to children and the adult population. As a result of the economic depression, more people in the community are becoming jobless, homeless, low-income, and uninsured. So the need for community health nurses has drastically increased. The child community health nurses’ role is concentrating on health promotion and prevention strategies. According to Contemporary Nurse Journal (2011), “the role is broaden to include multifaceted case management, home visiting, outreach programs, early identification and primary intervention of clients with psychosocial and mental health issues, group facilitation, the traditional one to one client contact and multidisciplinary team function (p. 72). The role for a community nurse in the adult setting is to prevent health problems in at risk individuals, promote disease prevention strategies, to provide care and available resources to needy individuals and families in the community. According to Stanhope and Lancaster (2012), “community health nursing practice is the synthesis of nursing theory and public health theory applied to promoting, preserving, and maintaining the health of populations through the delivery of personal health care services to individuals, families, and groups (p. 16).

Outreach Programs Annotated Bibliography

...Outreach Programs and Their Effectiveness in Lowering Crime Outreach programs are amongst one of the solutions that communities turn to when they begin to see elevated crime rates. The real question, however, is: Are these programs effective? I strongly believe that community outreach programs may be our one valid solution to lowering crime rates in a country that is seeing some of the highest crime rates that we have ever seen. I have found two scholarly articles along with two newspaper articles that I have summarized below that support my theory that outreach programs can be a very effective solution to rising crime rates. My research has provided me with data that backs up the notion that these programs do work, and as long as we continue to use these programs properly, our fight against crime has a promising outlook. Aos, Steve, Marna Miller, and Elizabeth Drake. "Evidence-Based Public Policy Options To Reduce Future Prison Construction, Criminal Justice Costs, And Crime Rates." Federal Sentencing Reporter 19.4 (2007): 275-290. Academic Search Premier. Web. 2 Oct. 2012. This report, which was conducted by the Washington State Institute for Public Policy, highlights some evidence-based options in which crime rates can be reduced while reducing tax rates for state and local taxpayers, and certain outreach programs happen to be one of those options. A rigorous evaluation of 571 individual programs was conducted, and while not all outreach programs are effective,......

...Reflection Walden University Introduction to philosophy PHIL 1001 How can you prove weather at this moment we are sleeping, and all our thoughts are a dream; or weather we are awake, and talking to one another in the waking state? Plato For this reflection I founded it fascinating to consider different understanding of reality, I really enjoyed Plato Alegory of the cave amazing piece of art work what a great philosopher for that time period, also movie Matrix great movie directed by Wanch brothers. So questions we can all ask ourselves: Are things we see around us real, are they our reality, and how do we know that for sure, how do we know if we are dreaming or not. These are questions that unfortunately are out of our reach and only time will answer. The Alegory of the cave is a famous story from the Plato Republic, it is a profound allegory with many interpretation, and in this reflection I will compare it to the movie Matrix, and my view of reality. “ Imagine the condition of men living in a sort of cavernous chamber underground, with an entrance open to the light and a long passage all down the cave. Here they have been from childhood, chained by the leg and also by the neck, so that they cannot move and can see only what is in front of them, because the chain will not let them turn their heads. At some distance higher up is the light of a fire burning behind them, and between the prisoners and the fire is a track with a parapet built......

Reflection of Christianity

...A Better Reflection of Christianity In the present day, there is a low opinion about Christianity; but the church can change that view by reaching out more to the community by developing more outreach programs. One of the reasons Christianity is misunderstood is because a lot of society feels that Christians confine themselves inside the church. They do not go beyond the building enough to show the true meaning of God’s love. Dr. Elmer Towns states “Others see the church as ‘ingrown’ and this unwittingly communicates the message, “You will never really belong here. In Christianity, the goal of the church (which is the people) is to live life like Christ. Believers of this faith should be an example of God’s Word and help others in the community find their way to Christ. Jesus was an advocate for helping people from all walks of life. It did not matter to Him whether you were rich or poor; He constantly reached out to those who were in need. This is what the church needs to do. One good way to reach out would be to develop a Homeless Ministry. On a certain day during the week, the church could provide a free meal and preach the Gospel to the people at the same time. This ministry should encompass more than handing out literature, but actually members of the Ministry speaking to the people as a whole, showing them that God has not forsaken them and that he uses the church as a way to help his people. Included with the meal and worship would be workshops on how to......

The Place for Outreach in the Classroom

...GTP Assignment 2 The place for kiruv(outreach) in the classroom Manchester 15th February 2013 2428 Words Introduction “Take to heart these instructions with which I command you today. Impress them upon your children. Recite them when you stay at home and when you are on the way, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as sign on your hand and let them serve as a symbol on your forehead; inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and your gates.” (Deut 6:6-9) The Shemah is not the most authoritative text in Judaism by mere coincidence, it contains the corner stone of our faith which is the transmission of the wisdom and knowledge received at Mount Sinai. In the introduction to his book Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe writes on the necessity of adequate educational methods when transmitting the Torah to ensure its appreciation and its affect on the continuity of the Jewish people. In this essay I aim to analyse the world of Jewish education; its history, challenges and efficiency, I also seek to evaluate the dangers of using the classroom as a laboratory for kiruv experiments and its consequences in the lives of the students exposed to such professionals. Education for Life Brief history The Talmud attributes formal Jewish schooling to the first century sage Yehoshua ben Gamla, prior to this, parents taught their children informally. The methodology used according to Judah ben Tema was: …“at five years the child is ready for studying the......

...1 Reflection Reflection is an everyday process. We reflect on a range of everyday problems and situations all the time: What went well? What didn’t? Why? How do I feel about it? We don’t usually follow a formula for this, it just happens as feelings, thoughts and emotions about something gradually ‘surface’. We might choose to do something differently, or not, as a result of reflecting, but reflection is essentially a kind of loose processing of thoughts and feelings about an incident, a meeting, a day – any event or experience at all. Reflection can be a more structured way of processing in order to deal with a problem. This type of reflection may take place when we have had time to stand back from something, or talk it through, as in: ‘On reflection, I think you might be right’, or ‘On second thoughts, I realised he was more upset than me.’ Structured reflection If we consciously reflect, maybe as part of our work or family role, there tends to be a rough process of ‘How did it go? What went well? Why? What didn’t? Why? What next?’ Examples might be of a football coach reflecting after a match, a teacher reflecting on a lesson, or simply a parent thinking about how best to deal with a teenager. In this kind of reflection, the aim is to look carefully at what happened, sort out what is really going on and explore in depth, in order to improve, or change something for next time. This brief guide will look at what is meant by reflection, suggest forms of structured...

The Teen Outreach Project

...The Teen Outreach Project Takesha McCaleb MGMT404 Project Management Jennifer Paul December 13, 2011 Table of Contents Scope Statement1 Reporting Structure of team members………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...3 Work Breakdown Structure4 Risk Management Plan5 Communication Plan…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………11 Scope Statement: Goal Definition There are so many teens in the city of Dayton and surrounding cities that have gotten off to a bad start and would like the chance to turn their life around with a little assistance. We have teens that are having babies with no place to go. There are teens that are on drugs and would like to get away from that lifestyle. There are teens that have runaway to escape an abusive situation and are now living on the streets. The goal of this project is to find a facility that these teens can go to, in order to get off of the streets. Get counseling and a chance to make a better life for themselves. With finding this shelter it is my thought that the City of Dayton can have less crime because these teens are off the street and don’t have to do bad things to get money and hopefully make room in the jails for serious offenders not teens trying to support themselves. Goals that address the mission * The major focus of this teen outreach project is to concentrate on the mission to pave a way for our misguided youth. * Provide an environment of learning and education that benefits our...

...experience of learning from reflection on giving intramuscular (IM) injections, using Gibbs's (1988) reflective model. I demonstrate how practice anxiety, as a student nurse, can be dealt with through effective mentoring. I chose the seminal theory of Gibbs reflection on practice, as it illustrates six significant stages; description, feelings, evaluation, analysis of the incident, conclusion and an action plan Ghaye and Lillyman (1997). Gibbs cycle is used throughout the process of reflecting on the incident to help me make sense of my practice and understand what l could do differently to enhance good practice. I use my experience from a placement simulation as I could not be on actual placement due to unforeseen circumstances. Reflection is a process through which healthcare practitioners and students can learn from experience and use the knowledge to inform and improve practice Schon, (1983). The ability to reflect on one's actions is particularly imperative in clinical practice and discourse. As Jarvis (1992) asserted, there is no consensus on the definition of reflection as it is a broad concept. Reid (1993, p305.) define reflection as; “a course of action reviewing an occurrence of practice to describe, analyse, evaluate and so inform learning about practice” Schon (1983) identified two types of reflection which are; reflection in action, which takes place during the event where the practitioner may not be aware that it is happening and reflection on action, which......

...Reflection Paper AB 104 Personal Financial Management Dana Gitzlaff October 7, 2014 Reflection Paper The first key element we learned about was setting specific goals about what we want to do with our life and our money. In both our professional lives as well as our personal lives, finances have a profound effect on achieving those goals. Setting a goal to travel in retirement years affects how we will plan our finances. Setting a goal for early retirement depends on how well we handle our finances in the present time. Home ownership, providing for the grandchildren’s college education, moving or changing careers will all be affected by how our finances are managed. Goals should then be prioritized in the order you want to achieve them with the exception of long-term goals like retirement which should be constantly maintained while working on the others. Setting goals will do little good unless a plan is formulated. Controlling your budget should be the first part of your plan and the second part should be how to get out of debt. After these two things are accomplished, decide what you want to do with your money to reach your goals. Creating a budget allows you to create a spending plan so you can direct your money in a way that will help you to reach your goals. Once you have formulated your plans and have paid off debt, you are ready to begin investing and should speak to a financial planner to help you make your investment decisions. Preparing in advance......

Reflection on Outreach

...Reflection on Outreach Program Food is the basic necessity of everyone. I love children. That is why I really enjoyed the few hours of having feeding program. I realized how an experience could b ]Ie extraordinary by simply being with the less fortunate and making them happy even for a while. I became inspired to persevere more in life so that I can be a big help for the less fortunate. It’s not my first time joining a Feeding Program. In my days in high school, I always facilitating a Feeding Program held in our barangay. Less fortunate children is really close to my heart because I, myself experience becoming like them, eating once eating non nutritious foods and not having my money. There is a chance that I need to transfer school so I can continue my studies .We are lucky because we can eat more than three times a day, we can study in a good university, we have more money, we can eat whatever we want, we are wearing a good uniform and we can have what we want. I am lucky because all of these, I can have and I experience and I can have, but the children in the feeding program cannot have it because there are not financially capable. Don’t waste your foods or either your money to anything but help others. I am Very lucky because I can do whatever I want to do. I can eat whatever I want to eat. Even you, you’re lucky. So we must take care these blessing and share to others. Sharing to others is the most special things I can do or we can do and feeling of we or I......

...Ethics Reflection Paper Ethics Reflection Paper Ethics and social responsibility are important concepts that play a significant role into implementing a strategic plan. Ethics and social responsibility will benefit an organization into having a successful strategy plan and reduce and any potential negative impact of a operation. The subjects to address in this paper are the following, the role of ethics and social responsibility in developing a strategic plan considering stakeholder needs and how my ethical perceptive has evolved throughout the program. Ethics is an important concept as well as the fundamental principles of right individuals conduct. “Business ethics seek to proscribe behavior that businesses, firm managers, and workers should not engage in. Ethics is a source of guidance beyond enforceable law. It is clear and uncontroversial that firms and their workers should not engage in unlawful acts, such as selling harmful or defective products, and ignorance of the law cannot be used as a justification for unlawful actions. Business and management ethics goes beyond the law lo provide guidelines as to what is acceptable behavior in business transactions” (Haq, 2011, p.1). The way a company could successfully establish a mission, vision, or objective for its organization is through adhering ethics. The company must develop values that interest stakeholders. The values should include direction and expectation of the organization. The values......

...Martha Belton Reflection Paper Theology 104 Introduction What can your local Church do to better communicate God’s love to your community? Does the Bible have authority? Did Jesus claim to be God? These are three topics I choose because it was very interesting to me when we talk about Jesus Christ, as our savior. A person living as a Christian should have a good attitude about their self, they should have a caring, loving and forgiving people who does God love. What can your local Church do to better communicate God’s love to your community? I think Church’s has responsibilities to spread the gospel to everyone As Christians we need to know that it was God’s grace and mercy that saved us. Church should not focus on the bad and wrong, but focus good potential in the people and community. The church membership and leadership in our community should embrace diversity without regards of labeling people. The church should not stop people from participation in any church functions, but it should not be limited to race, mental and physical health, gender and age etc. The problem churches have in today world they have to change from contemporary to modern to meet the need of people without them losing what the mission of church is for. Christianity is the most misunderstood religion in the world. The reason for the misunderstanding is the lies and the lack of stability in the church and the community. Christians are bound by the blood that was shed for us by the son of......

...Team A - Weekly Reflection Weekly Reflection This week in our class discussions, one topic in particular that is important is discrimination and how it is used in hiring practices. Because of legislation that has been passed, companies are now required to follow hiring practices that are supposed to eliminate most discrimination. However, even though companies are required to not discriminate it still does take place. When posting a new job announcement, some companies will manipulate the wording in the announcement so that only a specific individual can qualify for that job. As long as there is no mention of specific discrimination in the announcement, this is one way around the discrimination laws for hiring. Another topic in the discrimination field of employment is how technology allows for more discrimination than ever before. Because of the internet and information being solicited employers can find out any information about a potential candidate without even speaking to him or her. Employers can find out about race, gender, religion, national origin, and color by clicking a button on a computer. This new technology takes away the one on one interaction between an employer and a potential employee. The reverse side to the equation is the internet has allowed potential employees to flood employers with resumes. If an employer posts a job on, the company will receive thousands of resumes. It is impossible for the employers to meet with everyone......
