Psychology studies the mind and behavior in relation to a particular field of knowledge or activity. (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/psychology) “Dare you say what you think?” identifies the different levels in which social approval is for different people. Before I answered the questions this assessment gave, I went through all of different assessments to see which one I thought would best describe me. After reading all of them I thought that I was more in the average area, however I found out that I was actually on the highest assessment. When reading my assessment again I came to relies how the assessment that I got actually did describe me better than any of the other assessments did. I believe that the score was correct, some values that I see in myself that were mentioned in wanting social approval and avoiding disapproval made me look at the things differently. An example is that, I always look for the approval from my superiors......

Dare to Dream

...Dare To Dream The beauty of dreaming is amazing, it can take you anywhere in reality.  What I dream of is a goal to be set, it is a journey to be taken. When I dream, I force myself to take the challenge and walk into unknown grounds to bring everything I dream into a reality. Some of these day time dreams would come to reality, like the time I dreamed of becoming good in math, but some dreams are not meant to be and other could be way to far from our hands. Some when realized fulfill you of happiness and you just want to live in that moment. I believe that dreams are like a treasure to be search for and discovered.  The first time I found myself chasing my dreams was when I was in the fifth grade. It all started by the middle of the last semester, we were learning long division, but my background in math was really bad. I was lucky to know how to add. I was never a good student, but it was difficult for me to concentrate and pay attention. During class I would picture myself being the best in every subject, especially math. I desired that dream to be true more than anything, so I decided to bring it to life. First I tried to concentrate, but it was difficult. Months passed and I kept struggling with long divisions. One day I was trying to solve a long division for my homework, I started to analyze the equation and ask myself questions about it, then I discovered how to solve them. At the end of the year I was awarded a diploma for my achievement in math. Ever since,......

Dare to Dream

...wish – a wish is usually only a passing thought that most people never act on. But a dream is something that captures your heart and spirit. It ignites your imagination and fills you with an unquenchable hope. It becomes something you can't easily set aside. Dreams consume your thinking and fuel your excitement and passion. It can happen in a single moment, or it can captivate your thoughts for years. Sometimes when the dream is really big, you embrace it, and somehow it feels like the dream embraces you. Our dreams are often about experiencing a better life, about achieving greater things … they are pictures we have of the future that reveal a part of our lives that will be greater than the past. It takes courage to dream. Any time you dare to dream, there are risks involved. What if it never happens? What if it costs too much? What if people laugh at you? It's hard to hold on to your dreams. It's hard to believe when the world and those around you give you no reason to press in and press on. I've been blessed to realize many dreams in my life and ministry, and I'm convinced that a dream only happens when two things take place: 1. You live with expectant faith that the dream will happen. 2. You refuse to let go of the dream - regardless of the circumstances in your life. When God put the dream in my heart to acquire a sports arena as the location for Lakewood Church, I'll admit that even at first, I was unsure how it would happen. But I just kept believing God's......

...Janaki Patel Club Drugs Club drugs are becoming more abundant in society nowadays and readily available almost everywhere you go whether it is on the streets of a hustling bustling city like New York, a suburb like Princeton, or schools like Harvard. Not just club drugs, but all kinds of drugs are readily available, but right now club drugs are on the rise statistically. A recent survey shows approximately “37.1% of 12th graders, 24.8% of 10th graders, and 12% of 8th graders reported that MDMA was "fairly easy" or "very easy" to obtain” (Drug Free Website). Clearly it is evident that these club drugs are easy to obtain by the average American teenager. So what are club drugs? Club drugs are drugs used at parties, raves, clubs, and discos to maximize their clubbing experience. These drugs help acquire the euphoric feeling by releasing a chemical in the brain called serotonin which makes you feel good. The most common type of club drugs are ecstasy, GHB, Rohypnol, and LSD.

...As one prescription drug abuser in his early 20’s explained: Once people (pill brokers) know you take them prescription opioids, they’ll start calling you. “Oh, it’s this time of the month.” Then they wait for that person to get their script. They know exactly in their head what day the script’s getting ready to come so they got the patterns down. Pill brokers and dealers reported congregating in open air drug markets typically strip mall and pharmacy parking lots, and outside methadone clinics to buy, sell, and trade prescription drugs. These markets were reported to involve a variety of transactions, including the purchase of prescription drugs for cash, as well as trades for crack and heroin. Pill brokers also reported the purchase of used fentanyl patches from nurses who have stolen them from pain patients or from disposal containers in hospitals. Some individuals frequenting the drug markets also barter their oxycodone for other opioids or benzodiazepines, typically alprazolam. Doctor Shopping focus group participants indicated that even in a small state like Delaware, doctor shopping appeared to be fairly easy. The vast majority of abusers reported obtaining medications through doctor shopping, and most reported frequenting at least four physicians in order to obtain sufficient amounts of their desired medications. Occasionally clinics and hospital emergency rooms were reported as locations for doctor shopping as well. A heavy user stated: Another focus group member...

...Drugs and the Brian People use drugs every second, every minute of every day they are just a devastating part of our lives, but it’s your choice to use them or not. The first drug every recorded was ethanol [alcohol] around 4000 b.c. Over a hundred years ago drugs were used for “special’ occasions (Bishop). Nowadays kids use them like they’re candy and by their 45th birthday they’re almost dead. Drug abuse is one of the leading causes of cancer, death and mental illness. Drug abuse is the second largest form of abuse in teens ages 13-18 (alcohol is number one). The Effects of Drugs Drugs can quickly take over your body, like somebody is controlling you from the inside making you 35% more likely to steal, fight, and getting a D.U.I [driving under influence] (“Marijuana Myths and Facts”). Next they hijack your “reward” circuit and make you overdose on dopamine [gives you good feelings] this will happen in your limbic system (is the set of brain structures that forms the inner border of the cortex). Certain drugs will interfere with your nervous system and change the way you send receive and process information (“Teen Drugs”). THC [delta-9-tetrahyfrocannbinol] is a very harmful substance found in many drugs it rapidly passes though the lungs into the bloodstream and leads to your brain. This will have many short and long term effects, for example memory loss, hard time thinking/concentrating and problem solving. Short term effects like time/perception loss or......

Effectiveness of Dare

...For nearly twenty years the so called “experts” have been coming to schools and lecturing children about the problems contributed to drug use. A majority of students in the United States have had to sit through class after class of a police officer telling them to be a “skipping cd” and to “just say no.” Although the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program is extremely popular, it is ineffective and sometimes even counterproductive. D.A.R.E. and other drug education programs were introduced as a solution for the perceived drug abuse problems. Instead these programs have powered children’s interest in drugs. By telling a child something is off limits, this automatically sparks their interest: The forbidden fruit syndrome. D.A.R.E. is a publicly funded program which enlists law enforcement officials to help children resist drugs and gangs by targeting at risk youths. D.A.R.E. has uniformed police officers go into schools and warn students about the dangers of drugs. In most cases, the officers go to the classes once a week, for about 45-60 minutes (Scientific American), for several months. D.A.R.E. is immensely popular, it has been put in place in 75 percent (SA) of U.S. school districts and 43 countries. Even here in Middletown I constantly see D.A.R.E. bumper stickers, tee shirts, and police cars with the D.A.R.E. logo plastered on it. D.A.R.E. has become an extremely popular and recognizable fixture in many U.S. communities. Although D.A.R.E has claimed......

...Drugs Kendall Beard COM/172 May 6, 2015 Brian Townsley In my experience, for decades, many people have debated over the use of marijuana and whether it is good or bad for you. Many scientists have conducted their research on the usefulness of marijuana in the everyday life of people and most have only come back with negative results concerning the plant/drug. In this paper, I hope to prove that smoking marijuana does not cause the same amount of problems that smoking cigarettes might cause. In this paper, there will be few topics touched on concerning marijuana. There are ample cases of people using drugs because of their curiosity, individual freedom and choice, cultural characteristics, or relaxation activities and the substitute for modern medicine. Modern hemp and cannabis are distinctive assortments of the same species, Cannabis sativa. Weed generally contains 3 to 15 percent of the psychoactive fixing delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) on a dry-weight premise, while mechanical hemp contains 1 percent. Be that as it may, the two mixtures are unclear by appearance. In the United States, Cannabis sativa is delegated a Timetable I controlled substance, paying little respect to its opiate content, under the Controlled Substances Go about as changed. Since 1990, mixtures containing under 0.3 percent THC have been sanctioned in Incredible Austria, England, Switzerland, and Germany. Canada and Australia authorized hemp generation in 1998.

...EP. This abbreviation could mean either an ectopic pregnancy or evoked potential. If the person reading the chart is not careful, a mistake could be made. If a doctor were to write and incorrect dosage, it could lead to several different complications or health problems, and even death. A person reading a dosage incorrectly may also have the same result.  Abbreviations that support Jane Dare’s treatments and diagnosis would be dosages for her medications. Also, the HEENT for the head, eyes, ears, nose, and throats exam which showed the doctors difficulty in examining her. Knowing that Jane Dare had an EKG and a CBC prior to being released into a skilled nursing facility helps the staff learn about her past history. It appears she was having trouble with ADL’s, it helped the therapists by informing them of the things they need to help Jane Dare work on. Also, knowing that Jane Dare was still experiencing SOB, she could be an indication that she will need oxygen when she is ready to be released home. References Kendall, MS, A. Submarianan. (2008).

Assessing the Dare Program

...During the 1980’s the war on drugs hit hard on the United States. The D.A.R.E program which stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education was established to instill the proper tools of living a substance free life and not caving in to peer pressure which many children are faced with. The D.A.R.E program was significant in building social skills and boosting the self-esteem of schoolchildren. D.A.R.E was established in 1983 as a collaborative venture between the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles School District. During 1996, U.S. Congress approved the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act to endorse drug abuse training and prevention programs. Approximately 75% of school districts were utilizing the programs as well as 43 countries worldwide had also employed the D.A.R.E program. According to Rosie Cima (2015), D.A.R.E was originally intended for elementary school students, especially those entering the fifth and sixth grade. Eventually, it was integrated into the junior high schools as well as high schools. The D.A.R.E program was dedicated on reinforcing the ability teens and children had in challenging the urge to participate in substance abuse due to experimentation or peer pressure. According to Donna S. Kochis (1995), there was controversy brewing amongst scientific research and the D.A.R.E. program. The D.A.R.E program was doing everything possible to openly combat and divert the scientific cynics, they also attempted to hush......

...Mexico’s Drug War Drug trafficking has become an increasingly growing problem in the world today. Illegal drug trade is a worldwide black market consisting of production, distribution, packaging, and sale of illegal substances. Although today’s "War on Drugs" is a modern phenomenon, drug problems have been a common problem throughout history. The market for illegal drugs is massive, when we consider the estimated global drug trade value is worth $321 billion (Vulliamy). The most drug trafficking happens on the border between Mexico and the United States. Former Mexican President Felipe Calderon said, “Our neighbor is the largest consumer of drugs in the world. And everybody wants to sell him drugs through our door and our window” (Catholic Online). Mexico is the main foreign supplier of marijuana and a major supplier of methamphetamine to the United States. Mexico is responsible for 90% of drugs that comes from the southern border of the United States. Mexico has been a producer and distributer of illegal drugs for generations; the country now finds itself in a battle with powerful and well-financed drug cartels. The corruption in the Mexico, the trafficking of weapons and the violence has made it possible for cartels to keep operating. Since 2006, when president Calderon declared the war on drug cartels, violence in Mexico has increased dramatically. The country has certainly seen a big rise in drug violence, with cartels fighting for control of major shipment routes.......

...DRUGS Raymarr Shivers COM/220 April 8,2012 Jennifer Gaylor Introduction Dependency on drugs is considered by many as different in kind and is a chronic illness. Some people think that a drug pusher is just like committing murder. Drugs have been with us since the beginning of time. Depending on different eras and cultures drugs are used differently and with agriculture large quantities of drugs are able to be produced. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that the drug epidemic has destroyed many dreams and lives of people of all ages and races. Just about anyone can become an addict when trying out a drug. Most people already know that pain medication is prescribed and available easy and too much and in turn this is creating addicts. In the year of 2010 pharmacies dispensed something like 42 tons of hydrocodone and 69 tons of oxycodone. That’s enough drugs to give each human being in the United States of America 24 Vicodins and 40 Percocet’s. Prescription drugs are exceeding all drugs in levels of abuse.

...Drugs Javier A. Dominguez COMM/215 Professor Kenneth Frawley Drugs One of our most important worldwide issues today is the elimination of illegal drugs. However, getting rid of said drugs is extremely tough and complicated. Despite the constant fight to get rid of the illegal drugs, they remain and continue being used in our culture. So why is there little success in taking care of the problem? It obviously is not a lack of effort. A strong attraction to drugs still exists, but it is the prevention of this thirst for drugs that we need to put our efforts and attention in order to eliminate illegal drugs from society. The biggest mistake is that we are focusing on correcting drug abusers instead of getting rid of the desire to use them. However, applying more laws and more severe punishments against the drug abuse problem has yet to prove to be an effective method. Every day, drugs continue to be produced, distributed, and used around the globe. We have attempted to find locations of drug users and a drug producer to “punish them”, but this method does not stop anything. In one recent study from the National Health Service (NHS) information centre of “6,519 school pupils, about 12% of children in England and Wales are likely to have used drugs in the last year” (Guardian 2012). We manage to track down places where the drugs are, and close them down to prevent any further distribution and/or producing of drugs. But again, this method is not effective because it...
