Anthropology 101: Reading Response 10/10/11 Nice Girls Don’t Talk to Rastas by George Gmelch 1. This story is about a college student, from America, who studied abroad in a Barbadian village. The article recalls her time where she was shunned by the villagers because of rumors that were spread about her and a Rastafarian man, named Joseph. She had to ask for help from her teacher who had to explain to her that she is in a different country, which has different norms than she is accustomed to in America. George Gmelch’s main point in the piece is to show how different our culture is from others.

This had been for Alison’s emotional needs at the time. She never would talk to her parents about what she was really feeling. She would write in her diary, made poetry in parts of the book, Fun Home is a perfect example of her emotional needs as well. Her parents weren’t helping with communicating as well. Ian Sample tells us that psychologists say, “Brain scans on volunteers showed that putting feelings down on paper reduces activity in a part of the brain called the amygdala, which is responsible for controlling the intensity of our emotions”.

Should Spanking be outlawed? A California assembly woman plans to introduce a state bill making it illegal to spank kids three and under. I feel the world has gone too far, trying to take away the parents right to discipline there children. I was raised according to the rules of the bible “Spare the rod, spoil the child.” My mother was not beating us (even if that is what we though at the time), we were learning. I now practice some of the same methods my mother used on me and my sister, and brother.
I was taught at a very early age that you should always present yourself as if it was your first impression; that you cannot make a first impression twice. With Romano she was telling her employer that she was too injured to work; however, she was presenting herself outside of work on a personal note in a different manner. By posting pictures on Facebook and Myspace for everyone to see would be no different than going to a public park and playing tennis. If she was so concerned with what she was doing and no supposed to be doing then; one she should not have been doing it and two she most definitely should not have posting pictures for all to see.

This is the third week of school, and Matt’s teacher has already talked to his mother about having him tested for special education because Matt’s teacher says that he is reading below his grade level. Karen is Matt’s mother, and she refuse to have him tested for special education because she believes that it is too early for him to be tested for special education. She said that this is one reason why she agreed to have me work with her son. Matt is not a very willing person at all he is very stubborn. I asked Matt if he could come and sit at the table with me, so that we could read together.
An example of point of view in treating people equally occurs with Miss Caroline Fisher. After Miss Caroline asks Scout to read The Mobile Register she says “… tell your father not to teach you anymore” (Lee, 19). When she gets home, Scout tells her dad this and that she doesn’t want to go back to school. Atticus says “You can never really understand a person from their point of view until you climb into their skin and walk around in it” (Lee, 33). Another example of point of view in treating people equally occurs with Arthur (Boo) Radley.
Diet of television is the answer. I think parents should not replace a baby sitter for the TV, or even replace them selves for the TV. I know a lot of parents who prefer to sleep 30 minutes alone, and all they do is send their children to watch TV or play violent video games, they totally forget about the damage it is causing to them, and when they grow up parents complaint why their children are so violent with them and everybody else. I think the idea of built-in time-channel lock circuitry is awesome. Imagine a kid solving a puzzle -which will help to develop his brain- instead of watching TV; also this kind of activities will keep him safe from violence.
