Your Questions About An Impaired Use Of Language

December 22, 2012

James asks…

I using Spanish to exclude non-latinos a form of racism?

America has many immigrants from many different countries. And just as many languages are spoken. Yet the hispanics are able to communicate amongst themselves using spanish, which is the defacto language of latinos. Is this racism?

“Racial Discrimination – any distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life.”
Heh. Look at my heading. I should learn English too.

admin answers:

That would apply also to Chinese, Haitians, Japanese, etc, etc

Robert asks…

Do I have any chance?

I’m now a current a college student at Delgado Community College in New Orleans, Louisiana. I have a average GPA. I have 50 hours of credit, majoring in General Biology so I can transfer to community college out of the state which have a program and then hoping to transfer to RIT(Rochester institution of technology) to major in Bioinformatics or Biotechnology. I’m just wonder if I have any chance of getting in because it seem like a very good school for me. Also I’m hearing impaired, the school I’m going to in New Orleans doesn’t have the right service for disability students, my language are Sign English and I don’t really use American Sign Language because I never learned it until I started at Delgado. My weakest are in English since most of the teachers and the lab don’t seem to be working well with me, the advisor kept putting me in wrong classes over and over. It seem like the advisor don’t care. It make me wonder if I really need to move to get a good education for myself and something good for myself for once. All I want is to get a great education, social with people who are hearing and hearing impaired, learn many new things on my own, and learn on my own. Thank you for taking your time to read and any tips will be great!

admin answers:

Don’t even listen to that other person. Give up your dreams? That’s the most ridiculous piece of advice I’ve ever heard! Sometimes you need to be realistic, but that doesn’t always include giving up your dreams; it just means that sometimes, you need to realize that achieving your dreams will be difficult, but by no means impossible.
RIT is well within your aims. It’s an average school in terms of admissions, but you can still get an excellent education there. I don’t know what kind of help you could get there in terms of your hearing impairment, sorry. But I think you can do it.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. Nothing is impossible. I encourage you to apply, even if you don’t think you will be admitted. I hate to sound cliche, but I just have to say it: you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
I honestly believe that you can do this. I wish you the best of luck, and I sincerely hope that you are admitted. :)

Mandy asks…

Why do my classmates laugh when I make an oral presentation?

I am very shy, but I’m trying to get better grades. For that I need to make oral presentations. But I’m an immigrant so I’m speaking with an accent. Whenever I speak in front of a class or raise my hand, some people start laughing. I’m not sure what is so funny, maybe my body language (sometimes my hands shake) or my use of grammar or my accent.

But it really impairs my ability to do presentations. I was thinking if I know why they laugh, what’s the motivation behind it, I wouldn’t be so affected by it. Because objectively it’s not very funny.

Any thoughts would be really appreciated! Thanks!

admin answers:

Don’t worry about it. Sometimes some people can be just plain mean even if it isn’t funny, Just do your best and focus on your presentation, If you’re worried about looking at them, just imagine them as teddy bears. Good luck. ^^

Improving Eyesight Naturally Through Different Ways

Improving Eyesight Naturally Through Different Ways

Article by Tina Long

We have five senses but easily the most precious is our eyesight. It’s quite easy to take our eyesight for granted but like every other organ of the human body, eyes too need to be taken care of so that there is a good chance that our vision either stays the same or better, improves. How to improve eyesight is a question with many answers but there are three main ways:

• Wearing glasses• Wearing contact lenses• Via laser eye surgery

There is a fourth way as well which is improving eyesight naturally. One way to do this is by maintaining a balanced diet that has an adequate supply of both calcium and vitamin A on a regular basis. A daily dose of bilberry extract can also help. The other solution to how to improve eyesight naturally is via eye exercises. Eye exercises not only help to relieve eye fatigue and contribute towards keeping the eyes from getting dry, but they may also help in improving eyesight and that is something anyone with eye problems would like to do.

There are a number of eye exercises to improve vision that anyone can do and perhaps in the process be able to avoid something as expensive and seemingly as complicated as laser eye surgery. One of the best exercises to improve eyesight is blinking. On average human beings blink involuntarily every six seconds but some people can go minutes without blinking even once, particularly those who sit near computers and televisions for long periods of time. What blinking actually does is to keep the eyes fresh and prevent strain.

Other eye exercises to improve vision include palming and focusing. Palming is an exercise designed to make eyes relax and relaxed eyes make for better vision. In palming all you really do is place the cup of your palm over your eyes, allow your fingers to gently touch your forehead and leave enough room so that your eyes can blink freely. The focusing exercise is also simple: you place your thumb ten inches away from your face and concentrate on it; then you switch your vision to an object that is at least ten feet away from you. Take a deep breath and then switch your focusing between the two after every few seconds. This will strengthen the muscles of the eyes and help towards improving eyesight. ! You can also contribute towards the health of your eyes by consuming a diet that is well balanced and has sufficient quantities of calcium and vitamin D.
