"Yawning involves opening the mouth involuntarily while taking a long, deep breath of air. This is usually done as a result of drowsiness or weariness."

As we first met our professor in Comski2, the first thing she said to us are the ones she don't like when we are inside the classroom especially when having class discussion. As she was speaking in front of us we are all shocked when she said her rule "No Yawning" because for all we know yawning became our habit or commonly witnessed as human behavior.

Yawning is imporant because it's one of the best things we can do for our brain. It may even help us to enhance social awareness, compassion, and effective communication with others.

But what if our professor implemented the rule "No Yawning" during class discussion? Maybe for as students it is difficult to conform to the rule because it may became a habit for us. Yawning is normal and it is a good thing. It’s one of the best things we can do for our brain. It's one way we can keep the brain awake and alert. It is also a sign that reminds us to sleep or to have a rest. But for some instance it is a sign of disrespect especially when there is someone speaking in front of you. It has also been associated with drowsiness and boredom.

Here are some tips to get rid of yawning:
• If you are bored of the existing environment, get up and involve yourself in some other interesting work.
• Drink a glass of water. Drinking a lot of water will help you to rehydrate the body and thus, rejuvenates the body and suppresses the feeling of yawning at least for some time.
• Chew gums or always have something in your mouth. This helps to keep the brain active and prevent yawning.
• Have a good night's sleep. This is the most important step. A good 8 hours sleep is recommended. Thus, reducing the chances of getting bored easily.
• Avoid staring at others who are…...

Thou Shall Not Bite the Hand That Grooms You

...To cut a long story short, he studied grooming by correspondence and now, after 20 years doing what he loves the most Ramsey is still carried away by the same enthusiasm he started with. "Would you rather get a haircut in a salon or in a hospital?" Laugh it away; sadly that wasn't a rhetorical question. Ramsey wanted to hear my yes to rest his case: "Dogs don't know they're going to bath in the clinic. All they think about is needles and god-knows-what procedures, which will add up to their fear and hence their aggressiveness. I'm the good guy here". Communication! Communication! Communication! That's the keyword in approaching any dog, every dog. Ramsey has to please the client before the owner even if it means breaking the well known rule: Off property, on leash. The dog is allowed to sniff, play, fool, and wander around the garden. No Nos. And since "music helps in relaxation" Jazz is always on the menu to set the mood right. Tangled, poofy, matted, knotty, tousled… he's seen it all and fixed it all. Grooming is not just about techniques, art is involved. It requires patience, efforts and an aesthetic spirit to go from bufunky to squeaky clean. And Ramsey surely masters it....

Odysseus Where Art Thou

...Odysseus, Where Art Thou CS HUM/102 January 21, 2014 Professor Michael Downs There is an interesting event that takes place in works of art that we enjoy, and that is how something that we enjoy today can be based on something else from many years ago. Take the epic poem “The Odyssey” and the film “O Brother Where Art Thou”; the plot of this film is based loosely on the plight of Odysseus in “The Odyssey” Let us begin with the main characters of these two works. The Odyssey has Odysseus and O Brother Where Art Thou has Ulysses. Both appear to be natural born leaders with an outstanding wit and the capability to talk themselves in and out of trouble. Both Odysseus and Ulysses have great pride and confidence which seems to be a constant catalyst for their troubles. These two men obtain the faith of their men easily and both seem to drag their companions down into the dirt with themselves. Ulysses and Odysseus both seem to care a great deal about their men and both attempt to spare their men as much grief as either of them can given the circumstances they put themselves into. The stories of Ulysses and Odysseus are about the troubles and adventures that they face trying to make it back to the women that they love. There is another similarity between these two stories. The main woman of Odysseus’ heart is his wife Penelope, while Penny is the holder of Ulysses’ heart. Both of these women also never seem to lose their love for their husbands while......

The two elder women are sitting in the pram space in the bus, and the white elder women are pretending that they haven’t seen the Somali woman and her child. In another seat there is sitting a woman with her child and the woman is the narrator of the story.

The driver of the bus is a black man, and he starts to yell at the Somali woman because she is standing in the aisle and because she is not sitting on the seats. The two elder white women are saying a lot of racist words and express their racism towards the Somali woman. The Somali woman does not do anything or say something to the two elder white women, but the narrator is feeling a little bit guilty. She is feeling guilty because she did not help the Somali woman even thou she has taught her daughter to stand against such things in life. She is telling the Somali woman to report the bus driver but she does not want to report him, but instead call him a ‘slave’.

Who Shall Rule- History 101

...people then the leader would know what the people go through. The people always know if the leader is doing a good job. A good leader leads the good and a bad leader leads the bad, even though, in their mind it seems as they are doing good. But no matter who they rule, they have the natural capacity to rule. Someone would have to be born with this ability to rule, and handle everything that comes with being a leader. This is what most rulers have in common. Like King Hammurabi, even though he was a very good leader, his laws were ridiculous. But people still considered him a good leader regardless of his laws in the code of Hammurabi. King Hammurabi brought order to his people and they appreciated that, they knew and they did not want to be a victim of karma. “Even if a man builds a house badly, and it falls and kills the owner, the builder must be slain. If the owner’s son is killed, then the builder’s son is slain.” This is what an “eye for an eye” meant during those times. King Hammurabi of Babylon was a very good king. Not only did he establish order but he created a code which his people should abide by, if not then there were serious consequences in return. Even though, he brought order his rule was not one hundred percent ethical. The way King Hammurabi ruled, he has done a job well done, but some of the things just is not the way to go about things. Although, the consequences made people think twice before they committed a crime, it is not morally......

...I-Thou Dialogue Guide Congressional discord and governmental dysfunction appear to be approaching historic levels in America today. The latest partisan rhetoric emanating from Capitol Hill is paralyzing all cooperative efforts aimed at solving any number of America’s problems. In particular, Congress’s recent failure to reach bipartisan consensus on extending the Bush era tax cuts will undoubtedly result in a debilitating tax increase for millions of financially strapped Americans, unless our legislators can put aside politics and engage in a collaborative dialogue intended on solving this and other critical issues facing Americans presently. As the newly appointed Congressional Dialogue Facilitator, I have been charged with the task of facilitating such a collaborative dialogue amongst our country’s political factions in hopes of breaking the partisan stalemate that’s crippling the American democratic process. Accordingly, I am instituting 6 rules of conduct for all inter-party communications which I am confident will help cultivate an I-Thou communication relationship amongst Democratic and Republican Party members. Proper application of the mindfulness, effective listening, confirmation, emotional intelligence, trust building, and moral argument I-Thou communication behavior rules will help foster respectful and cooperative communication efforts while increasing Congress’s consensus decision-making quotient. Typical congressional debate presupposes that one side is......
