Response To My Classmates Discussions In 4HOURStoday150 Words

2 hours agoRe: Week 2 | Discussion – Who is God?

I have always known that God always has a plan. Even if we may not understand what it may be at first. There is always a reason behind it as well. Which tells me that God is all knowing, all mighty, patient, and caring. Those are the characteristics which were portrayed in Exodus in my opinion. A lot of people become angry and impatient when they fail to realize what Gods plan is at once. But I believe that we must all find it within ourselves to be patient and have faith that what is happening to us has a reason behind it and that God would never lead us towards a situation we could not handle or a situation which would be bad for us.  That is how we would have a stable relationship with God. Just like the Israelites remained patient and never lost their faith, we must do the same. Life is not all about always getting what you want and never being challenged. It is about being challenged, but throughout those challenges remaining true to yourself, your beliefs and in general everything you stand for. This is something I try to always remind myself when going through hard times.

1 day agoWeek 2 – Who is God?

Who is God?

  • Think about ways in which God shows up in Exodus. Explore images of God in Exodus by offering 3-4 descriptors of God’s character.

In Exodus, God shows up in various ways. He is whomever He chooses to be, a burning bush, a miracle (staff and snake), a powerful God whose presence is felt and seen and a God of His word, he instructs Moses in Exodus 4:12, “I will help you speak and will teach what to say”.  He is a powerful God that demands obedience. He also showed up as plagues, He would speak and then it would be done. He was clear in the details of His instructions (especially when it came to Passover), a God of order. 

  • Then, suggest implications for what it would mean to have a relationship with this kind of God.

To have a connection with this God would be amazing. He performed miracles; he saved the Israelites from captivity. He showed love, compassion and yet He is still feared because of the miraculous things He did – plagues, parting the Red Sea and saving them from slavery. Blackburn suggests that God did these things so that the Egyptians and the Israelites would know Him (pg.75).  In other words, the Israelites being led out of Egypt was so that all people would know who God is and what He can do, to glorify Him.  The ultimate goal is that God’s people would have a connection with Him and be one with Him, following His instructions. 

Assignment Help Analysis Of Development Theories

Competent social workers are able to construct a strong foundation upon which to build skills by understanding theories from a variety of disciplines. The disciplines of psychology, education, and sociology offer a number of development theories that can easily be applied to the practice of social work. For this Assignment, consider how a theory from another discipline may shed light on social work practice with children and adolescents.

By Sunday 9/15/19

Submit a 2- to 4-page paper in which you choose a theory of development from another discipline (refer to Erikson, Piaget, Freud etc.). In your analysis, be sure to address how the theory does or does not relate to social work practice. Please use the Learning Resources to support your answer. USE APA and readings from:

Zastrow, C. H., Kirst-Ashman, K. K., & Hessenauer, S. L.  (2019). Understanding human behavior and the social environment (11th ed.). Boston, MA: Cengage Learning.

  • Chapter 3, “Psychological Development in Infancy and Childhood” (pp. 95-158)

Assignment Help Media And Sexism

Many marketing efforts perpetuate the gender stereotypes that are steeped in our culture. Two examples at attempts to maintain these stereotypes through advertising are the Bic Critsal For Her and the Easy Bake Oven. These two conceivably innocuous items triggered a flood of articles, petitions, and videos, denouncing their perceived underlying messages.

The first controversy that erupted surrounded the Bic Cristal For Her pen. This pen was created and packaged specifically for women to use. Several groups lashed out at Bic, calling their attempt to target women with “lady pens” sexist and demeaning. Its detractors felt the campaign was degrading and fed into stereotypes by highlighting the thin design and the use of pastel colors. The negative press was overwhelming, although the pens have remained on the market.

Consumers also targeted those responsible for marketing the Easy Bake Oven by sending a petition asking its parent company Hasbro to make the ovens in colors other than pink and purple. Thousands of individuals signed the petition asking for alternative oven colors after a teenage girl from New Jersey was angered that her younger brother would have no other option but to use an oven in the colors that are considered stereotypically female. It was argued that the colors supported the stereotypical view that only young girls would want to bake. The signers of the petition felt that young boys who might want to use the toy would be more likely to practice their baking skills if the color of the oven was gender neutral.

Consider these two stories and think about your own reactions to the responses to the advertising and merchandising of these items.
