Intro: This paper was challenging to write, I had trouble finding the right flow and balance. After revisions, I finally realised what is needed in this essay. My goals for this essay was to have better flow and stronger vocabulary, hopefully I met my own goals. Overall, this essay was a good challenge. (❁´▽`❁)*✲ﾟ*
The U.S. military has high standards for medicine, the standards in mainstream medicine should be raised. Medicine is the solution, a practice to treatment preventing illnesses or injury. Medicine is not just about doctors, it is about specialties and qualifications. Modern medicine can be overlooked, but it doesn’t always have the solution to everything. Today, training and practices are still improving to treat patients efficiently and correctly. Many trauma centers across America are influenced by military medicine. Military medicine faces a challenging situation that requires intense training. They have limited time and materials on the battlefield, but are driven to treat the patients. On the other hand, trauma centers are able to ‘fluctuate’ the time and they have the materials needed, but why are trauma centers influenced by the military, it should be vice versa.
The training and the budget for modern medicine are not always as reliable. Modern medicine training do not have the same pressure to adapt to the situation. A fundamental value is funding; it is funding dedicated to military training and it is an advantage. The money towards training creates this foundation, it forces them to use all resources to do what they can save. With that convenience, would modern medicine be influenced by other specialties? Or have created this innovation at first hand?
Mainly, trauma centers are influenced by military medicine training and practices, according to U.S. Medicine, “‘Historically, many improvements in trauma care have been observed during war and innovations made on the battlefield due to the large and concentrated number of severely-injured patients,”... “Historically, improvements in operative trauma care have been driven by war and innovations on the battlefield.” (2016) Clearly stated, trauma centers use innovation used on the battlefield, and it has improved care. We can gain these alterations into civilian life. The first thought that comes into mind about the battlefield, we tend to think about death. We should turn that thought around and acknowledge that it’s not just about trauma.
Gaining innovations like damage-control resuscitation (DCR), which is what the military doctor use, is now something that many trauma centers practice. According to the U.S. Medicine, Wars’ biggest damage to a soldier is blood loss from weapons, bullets, grenades, missiles, etc. Several techniques are used to slow down the flow of blood, a rope is tied around the wounded limb, but as simple as that it wasn’t in the favor of the wounded soldier or doctor. The method of choice on the battlefield now is to cauterize the wound, burning the flesh to create a temporary close. Compared to modern medicine, this method is used for emergency surgery to stop bleeding. That innovation changed the game for modern medicine.
Small innovation on the battlefield can create a large impact; simply observing a wound can lead to a medical breakthrough. A fresh wound on a soldier may illuminate or glow. The ‘glow’ that appears on the wound may predict a higher survival rate than those who do not have the ‘glow’. What is the reason behind the glow? The glow came from Photorhabdus-luminescens, which is a bacterium carried by nematodes. The soldier crawling through mud attracted insects which had the bacterium. The bacteria is found to fight off insects, but also competing for microbes. Photorhabdus-luminescens is now used to treat antibiotic infections. Now, other researchers found a way to treat HIV and other diseases. These situations of battlefield innovations prove that it creates a large impact on mainstream medicine. How can modern medicine create the same innovations?
Having the same high standards for modern medicine might be the solution. Creating the mentality that military doctors have, these innovations can be created. If trauma centers had the same mentality would the survival rate increase? Just a simple observation can create an impact. Brought to Life Exploring the History of Medicine states, “War is often associated with new discoveries in medicine. Some of these discoveries have been relatively small, but others have had a significant impact on our understanding of the body and the impact of the trauma of war on the mind and body.” To keep in mind, the situations that a soldier goes through may not be seen in a trauma center, the environments are different. The situation may not ‘simulate’ the same during war. Comparing these two different, but related topics may not be a straightforward comparison. War’s pressure and environment might also be an element to these advancements.
Medicine is a battlefield itself, finding any way to fight off infections and injuries. The techniques and methods used in war are now used in modern medicine, it’s efficient and less invasive. Plato said, Necessity is the mother of invention when needed something, it must be forced or find a way to achieve it. That is the mindset that the military doctors have to have strict training, meanwhile, modern medicine doctors should follow along and it might change their own results. With the training and pressure given to the military, many innovations were achieved. Creating reliability may be the answers to more innovations, but also finding the right balance. Training, mentality, and environment all play a role in mainstream medicine, thus, benefiting our society. We can gain these advantages that military medicine goes through, we shouldn’t have to look back at the advancements made on the battlefield. Starting now, creating our own environment to create our own innovations.

In my essay I wanted to convey the pressure finding your own path with different influences around you, to succeed in America as a first-generation. I’m proud of showing my side of the story and journey of becoming the person I am now. On my next paper, I want to be able to let my audience feel the experience that I’m in, let them feel like they were in the story with me.
Advanced Essay #2: Under Pressure
Acceptance from others is important, especially from yourself, self-acceptance. I had a hard time accepting myself as an Indonesian-American. It was harder when I was bullied because of my race, my self-esteem was low. I didn’t want this as my identity. It became difficult to find confidence in myself. I was Indonesian in my home, but outside I was American. I couldn’t find the middle ground. The motivation I had for myself was not there. I didn’t want to succeed and I was terrified. As the first generation in America, I did have a lot of pressure to do so. I didn’t want to make a mistake and look down on. I had to keep going and find acceptance for myself. My parents worked so hard to prove they do belong here, and people who believe they don’t, they prove them wrong. My parents were my motivation, they made me move on and succeed. We worked (together) alongside each other. I looked up to my parent’s motivation.
As a child, I always felt out of place and wasn’t able to relate to anyone. At school and on the bus I used to get bullied. They would tease me and took advantage of me. When I cried, it would satisfy them. I questioned myself if this is who I want to be or if it’s better to hide. I was ashamed of my ethnicity. I wanted to be someone else. I would reach out to my teachers and principal, and they would tell me to ignore them. It hurt when they would say that. I was growing and still learning, I needed the reassurance and help and they didn’t fulfill that. I had to defend myself and I took that as independence. I wanted them to stop, and I realized they won’t stop. They will see that they won’t affect me, they aren't worthy. I can hear them say “ching chong” and see pulling their eyes apart. I looked at them like fools because I found worth in myself. They saw me grow my confidence in my ethnicity.
I know my parents didn't come to America to see their child hurt and fail. With that understanding, I knew I had the power to love myself and fulfill my parent's wishes. I am first-generation I know that I am here to succeed. I took that and I ran with that. I fully embraced it, I would say to myself, I’m proud of being an Asian-American and I love my home country. No one can ever take that away from me. I had to figure out my own my own path with the different influences around me.
Adam Davidson, the author of the article Debunking the Myth of the Job-Stealing Immigrants, talks about how society looks at immigrants and that they steal jobs. Davidson proves them wrong saying, “Immigrants increase the size of the overall population, which means they increase the size of the economy. Logically, if immigrants were “stealing” jobs, so would every young person leaving school and entering the job market; countries should become poorer as they get larger. In reality, of course, the opposite happens” (2015). Davidson demonstrates immigrants are the future. Immigrants take jobs that no one else wants and it keeps America moving. My parents came here to keep their lives moving, they knew they have a purpose here. To create a family and give opportunities they never had in Indonesia.
Laura Pappano, the author of the First-Generation Students Unite, tells the story of Ana Barros and first generations. In her article, she says, “Many first-generation students, with their histories of self-sufficiency and staring down obstacles, see seeking help as a sign of failure... While most students “feel entitled” to academic and emotional support, first-generation students, said Stanley Stewart, a Brown junior, “feel really guilty about taking advantage of resources” (2015). I believe that first-generations feel obligated to be independent or we feel as if we can’t get help. So when we ask for help, it feels like defeat. We are pressured to be successful, but when asking for help it feels like we have given up and we aren’t doing any work. Our family came here to create a new life, but when asking for someone for help, it can feel like failure.
Self-embrace and self-acceptance have shown that it’s the main key to success. This has given me independence and self-determination. My race is apart of my identity and it has impacted my life in many different ways. Born into a family that works hard every day and living through high expectations is difficult, but I must push and work beside my family. At first, it’s not an easy journey to find pride and the confidence in my ethnicity. But it’s a learning and growing experience.
My heart aches, my hands shakes and sweats. Looking around regarding all the musicians immeasurable compared to me.
“Why am I doing this to myself?” I questioned.
Inhale and exhale, focused on my lungs expanding and filling up with air, then releasing.
“Don’t worry I’m gonna do great, I will do my best!” I lied to myself.
A room filled with violinist and one black grand piano sits in the middle of the stage, and chairs surrounding it, adding tension to the room. I sit in the front row with other violinists. My violin sitting against the right side of my body, all four strings creating a mark on my arm, the bow shaking in my right hand, on my left hand I feel the smooth cool paper becoming warm. I sit prepared with my music but feeling unsatisfied and not good enough. I sit with anxiety next to me only focusing on my doubts. I can feel it looking down at me like I am less.
“I can ignore it for now.” Lying to myself again.
I watch the fingers of each musician dance from one string to another and the bow cutting through the air. The anticipation is creeping over my shoulders, it’s almost my turn. I urge not to play in front of many pairs of eyes, and yet again I wait my turn. My music school principal arises to announce the next musician.
“Please don’t let it be me, please…” I said to myself desperately.
“Next up, Nasya Ie.”
My heart skipped a beat as soon as I heard my name. I stood up, my legs shaking and my heart speeding up.
“There’s no turning back now.”
I walked up to the stage with fear by my side, I inhaled and exhaled, leaving fear behind. Now it’s just me and music. I placed my music sheet on the stand, put myself in the courageous potion. I looked at the pianist, took a deep breath, and nod, indicating that I am ready. I read my music sheet, I’m not thinking, I’m doing, I let my fingers free and let them take control. Thinking will mess me up, so I just go. I see and feel my fingers dancing, and my bow cutting through the air. My frustration goes through my violin creating music that I made. I am one with my violin. Time was so heavy, working myself through time to get over this performance. All my hard work and dedication placed in front of everyone. A moment of peace, and there was a sigh of relief. The burden has lifted from my shoulders. I did it, and I will prepare myself for another coming.
That’s what controls me, anxiety and fear. It takes over my body leaving me stranded. I feel useless and never good enough. I have an expectation that I must reach, but that’s too much pressure, I know that this cannot be an excuse. I push myself to reach and reach, my anxiety pushing me to reach. Accepting that this is good, for my anxiety turns its back on me. More and more doubts from my anxiety telling me that I am wrong. Is it worth fighting for this goal, you might be doing something wrong, but if you don’t do it you’re just careless.
I ingest what it says to me, there’s nothing I can do, but to keep going. I’m attached with anxiety, it speaks into my ear giving me doubts, until I fall. It sits on me like a crown, a crown that keeps my head down and telling me I can’t and won’t get back up. This is life and all I can do is keep going. I will fight to reach my goal and try to leave my anxiety and fears behind me. But I know they will catch up to me and beat me down, every single time I get stronger. Anxiety will always be a part of me even though I don’t want it to. I can’t live without anxiety and anxiety can’t live without me. These are obstacles we have to go through to build ourselves to shape who we are today. It shows our strengths and weaknesses. Pushing yourself and fighting through the pain, proves it’s all worth it.
This is my element Fluorine, the atomic number is 9. In 1886 a french chemist Henri Moissan discovered Fluorine. He was the first one to isolate Fluorine. Fluorine is very toxic and can reacted very easily. Since it reacts easily it is hard to store. But why did I put toothpaste to represent Fluorine? Because it is made from fluorine. I choosed toothpaste because I did some research and I was inspired by it. I put the atomic number as the floss, I thought that was clever.
The process I did is to have my design, put it on transparent paper or wax paper, then trace/transfer that onto foam plate. Finally put roll paint on the foam plate that has the design and ‘print’ it on paper.
If I got to do this again I would be more neat and organized to make sure that it would be clear to see. What I enjoyed about this project is making my design for Fluorine and printing it.
As you can see little amount of money counts and different amount of money can help these animals in the shelter. It can provide a lot for little amount of money. I want this to become a trend, everyone donating to shelters. This will help animals and the shelter, too. I am going to take the time and effort to fundraise for PAWS and hopefully more shelters.

Madison S. taking a photo of me making an announcement about my bake sale
I emailed PAWS about the donation
So as you can see by the picture above I have emailed Director of Development. I asked her about the donation and what I did to produce the donation for PAWS. I am so glad that I got to support PAWS and for everyone who supported the bake sale.
This project was an experience, is was enjoyable. I got to learn so much about industries harming animals and its horrible ways. Also, doing an original research, making a survey on what people know about my topic. Then, me having a bake sale to raise money for PAWS shelter. If I got to do this again I would be a bit more organized, so everything is smooth, also credits to my mom for helping me for my bake sale. Even though this project is coming to an end, I still want to raise awareness and try to solve this problem and I believe we can do this together to stop this problem.

Hello! Welcome back to my blog. If you didn’t read my first post, please read that first, so you will understand more about the topic that I am going to talk about. In my first blog, I talked about industries harming animals, for example, puppy mills, fur farms, pet stores not taking care of their animals. I talked about what secret industries do to animals and that they don’t tell anyone what they do to the animals. I am going to talk for them, to be the animals’ voices. This is important because a reasonable amount of people that took my survey knew about this, but not everyone. I am going to show what people know from looking from my survey. I want to show the world that animals are being harmed. I made a survey so it will help me see if people really do know if they know about this. The result were quite shocking.
For our project, You and the World, we get to decide if we get to do a interview, survey or a field observation. For the past 2 weeks, we had to do an interview, survey, or field observations for our topic. For my topic I chose to do a survey. In my survey I asked questions like…
If they are aware industries harming animals?
What do they know about it?
What do you know about puppy mills?
My results were surprising, not a lot of people know what puppy mills are or what industries are really doing, some of the results were just unnecessary or unhelpful. Here are the results below if they heard about puppy mills.
Results of ‘Have you ever heard about puppy mills?’
The survey that I made gave me a different perspective on what other people know about industries harming animals. I thought a good amount of people knew that industries are harming animals, but they didn’t know what is truly happening to them from looking at the results I received. It was proven that 84% of people were aware of industries harming animals and 16% of people didn’t know about it. In my survey, I asked a question “What do you know about industries harming animals?” lots of people said they don’t know, but there were a few people that went deep into this, “I know the fur industry can harm/injure/kill animals for their fur. Factory farms abuse animals and give them no room to move around in and have the animals live in their own filth. Puppy mills inbreed and leave dogs in small cages. I also know that zoos and circuses abuse animals to do tricks for them.” “I know that a lot of farms and and other industries that produce meat often times are where animals are sent to be slaughtered, and while they are there they are tormented, starved, squished and crowded together and have no relief. Their necks are broken, and many are fed things that make them larger but are unhealthy for their systems.” I was happy to see these informational result, but that is only a few people, I want more people to know about this problem.
I asked a question on my survey if they support industries harming animals and the results is above. As you can see 8% of people supported industries harming animals. 10% is neutral and 82% does not support industries harming animals. I want to change that and I need a solution.
Agent of Change is what is a solution or how you are going to help this situation. My Agent of change is I will be fundraising for a animal shelter. I want to do this because the government actually does not provide money to shelter which is crazy and sad. I am going to step up to provide money, by doing a fundraiser to a shelter, Paws.
Hopefully, this will be a trend, helping shelters. We will start off small then go on and help all animals around the world. I can’t do this alone so we can work together to stop this problem. For more information click here for my bibliography.
I had a lot of ideas in my brainstorm, I had a paper crane, a pepper and more. But out of all of those ideas I choose this magical peach. This magical peach reminds me of my family and I. This peach reminds me of me and my sister how we both love magical creatures, this also shows the background of my family gardening and how delicate we can be.
In art, we had to find what represents me, like I said before I choosed this magical peach. This peach was originally a line drawing and make the line thicker, so it can be stamp like. This peach is in positive space, but how? As you can see, the peach is in a white background and the peach is in a different color, pink. The background is the positive and the peach is negative. Negative and positive space is important because it shows the different details and sections you might not notice. On my peach you can see the swirl because of the positive space.
The thing I got stuck is how am I going to cut this out so it can be positive or negative. And I choosed positive because I wanted people to see the details. So, I had on the internet to figure out if I was correct. I was confused what is the difference between positive and negative, but this assignment help me on that. By doing this assignment it can help you tell the differences.
Negative space in art, is space around the object/Subject. Negative made you focus on the background instead of the object/subject.
I found my negative space in my cut out by looking at my first cut out then basically flipping it on the other side. You can see the darker background which is negative and the lighter background, which is positive.
Negative space can help an artist by making illusions. For example, you can see two different things in one. I think negative space is good for illusions, seeing in different perspective.
Seeing in negative space does and does not enhance the drawings. I say that because negative space does take away some details, but also you can make negative space in as a illusion.
Hello, my name is Nasya Ie. I am currently a freshmen at Science Leadership Academy. In my English class, we have a project called You & The World and in this project we get to choose a topic that interests us. For this project, I chose Industries Harming Animals. This topic matters to me dearly because I want to be a veterinarian and to be a vet you have to have passions animals to do your job. I want the world to know how animals are suffering because of companies are taking skin, fur, leather, wool, silk and more! Even pet stores that are selling animals are treating them like nothing.
All around the world people are keeping animals in captivity, they leave the animal in horrible environment and conditions. They leave them in small cramped spaces with no food or water, they get diseases without any vets to help them. Animals are getting diseases because they are in an environment that will make them unhealthy. These industries will harm them, not care for them, and treat them like they are nothing. They harm these animals, they can feel pain like we do. I want to open people's eyes that this is happening, that this need to stop this. Not a lot of people know what the history of the fur they are wearing, how the animal were treated to get the fur. Also, you shouldn’t always trust your pet store because they are not innocent, they are doing bad thing and still doing it now.
Petco is an industry that provides supplies for pets and sells pets. Little did you know, Pecto will put animals in cramped spaces and bad conditions. “The death toll was so high at the store I worked at that part of the closing procedure every day was to take out the dead ‘feeder fish’ who had been sucked into a filter, wrap them in a plastic bag, and place them in the ‘dead’ freezer, along with dead rats, mice, hamsters, birds, and other casualties.” If they see animals that are hurt or unhealthy, they will leave them to die, no vets to help the animals. Petco is not the only one that treats their animals like this many more, Petsmart, Pet Supplies Plus and many stores will keep animals in these conditions.
Clothing companies like Abercrombie and fitch, Guess, H&M, etc. most likely have fur factory farms, keep small animals like, foxes, bunnies, ferrets, raccoons, cats, big cats, birds, and more. “Each mink skinned by fur farmers produces about 44 pounds of feces in his or her lifetime.” Keeping them in captive then skinning them alive which is so gruesome, having no care for the animals and environment. But why would they skin animals? Because it is all “natural.” After they are skinned, they then will put it in chemicals so it won’t rot. There is a whole process to do this so people can wear their skin/ fur. This is crazy because not a lot of people know that animals had to have a gruesome death to have that fur coat, pom pom, leather, feathers. I want more people to see that fur, leather, feather is that representation of their death, their death being shown off on stores, on people. So, that people will be more careful on what they buy.

Here is a map showing the percentage spending money on shelters.
All lot of industries are similar with harming animals. By doing this is making our ecosystem have more problems. I know it is going to be a great deal of effort to stop industries harming animals, but I think we can make these industries less greedy. For more information click here for my bibliography.
Printmaking is a form of art, for religious use, mark an animal or prisoner, and there are different techniques to printmaking. Printmaking can be in different forms, Intaglio, stencil etc. Each Type of printmaking uses different materials and techniques. The form of printmaking was originated from China, China they used it for religious show their religious idols.
The one of the oldest type of relief printing is engraving, engraved designs were found on bones, stones and cave walls. But what was their ink back then? They used clay to make that impression. Printmaking was spreaded to Europe and Europe used it for religious use also. At that time it was getting popular, they would print things on thin pieces of paper and some people would eat it. Whatever the image was on the paper it will protect them or the will make wishes. This shows that printmaking we different for everybody they will use for different uses.
Here is an example of Chinese printmaking
I chosed this printmaking because you can see every detail and it shows you that you can do a lot with printmaking. You can see the texture, different color and how real it looks.
Overall for printmaking it can be different, printmaking can be used for traditions, religion, art, and communicate with each other.

Heyo, my name is Nasya. I made my slide look like this because it showed the things I Iike. I have my dog in my slide and my turtle and on the right corner you can see my sister and my dog together. I also added little thing that I like like the unicorn, totoro, ponyo and shiba inu. And in my me magazine I talked about my Youth group also and they are in the top left corner. In my slide I tried to catch people's attention in my slide, I tried added a variety of colors. I also added different sizes in the slide, different fonts, there is also movement in my slide. I was really eager to my this slide because I can show you a little piece of my life.
This is a video about a girl, Nasya having trouble counting and her wonderful friends help her on how to count properly in spanish. I hope you enjoy! ≧◡≦
explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. -So I have Xfinity Comcast, so I have a coax cord and that is connected to a modem router. And then it is connected with all of my devices. And you can see it on the picture.
reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned. -I learned that there are different routers and different ISP have different cords. On OMG that it can be a lot to have a app, like he had to start all over a couple time, so he can have a better app.
what would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? -So I have Xfinity Comcast and the cord is a coax cord and it is connected to my modem router.
