One hot morning in Sua Pan, Mr Flamingo was standing in the wetland, preening his feathers. It was the wet season in Botswana, and the overnight fall had created the perfect level for Mr Flamingo to enjoy himself. He looked at his reflection in the pool. Ã¢â¬ËOh my,Ã¢â¬â¢ he sang, Ã¢â¬ËI am the most beautiful bird there ever was. My feathers are pinker and shinier than any other flamingoÃ¢â¬â¢s.Ã¢â¬â¢ Nearby a group of female flamingos were having breakfast. They were picking through the waterÃ¢â¬â¢s bed, searching for shrimp. They had all heard what Mr Flamingo was saying. One of them broke away from the group and walked over to him. Ã¢â¬ËYou really should try to keep your vanity under control,Ã¢â¬â¢ she said. Ã¢â¬ËOne of these days it will get you into trouble. There are more important things in life than your feathers.Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo laughed. Ã¢â¬ËMaybe to you, Mme,Ã¢â¬â¢ he replied. Ã¢â¬ËBut then you havenÃ¢â¬â¢t been blessed with good looks like I have.Ã¢â¬â¢ The female flamingoÃ¢â¬â¢s feelings were hurt. She turned away and walked back to her friends. Mr Flamingo laughed again, and returned to admiring his reflection in the water. Later that day, the other flamingos had moved on to another pool. However, Mr Flamingo had stayed in the same spot. He was still grooming and preening, ensuring that every feather was laying just right. He heard footsteps padding towards the water. He looked up and saw a lion standing by the edge, watching him. He was about to fly off when the lion spoke. Ã¢â¬ËDumela Rre, good day Sir, Mr Flamingo,Ã¢â¬â¢ said the lion. Ã¢â¬ËDid you know that you really have the most beautiful feathers?Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo smiled. Ã¢â¬ËWhy are you here all alone?Ã¢â¬â¢ continued the lion. Ã¢â¬ËYou must have lots of friends, being as handsome as you are.Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo shook his head. Ã¢â¬ËI think they are all jealous of me. They tell me I am vain.Ã¢â¬â¢ The lion laughed a roaring laugh. Ã¢â¬ËWell of course they are jealous of you,Ã¢â¬â¢ he said. Ã¢â¬Ëthey are all ugly compared to you.Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo laughed as well. Ã¢â¬ËYes, I suppose youÃ¢â¬â¢re right.Ã¢â¬â¢ The lion sat down and inspected one of his paws. Ã¢â¬ËNow, Rre, I am part of a choir,Ã¢â¬â¢ he said, Ã¢â¬Ëand we are performing the Kwasa Kwasa next week. We are looking for someone to dance for us, and I think you would be perfect.Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬ËMe?Ã¢â¬â¢ asked Mr Flamingo. Ã¢â¬ËWhat makes you think I can dance?Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬ËOh do not be so modest,Ã¢â¬â¢ the lion replied. Ã¢â¬ËYou must be able to dance with those long and elegant legs. Why donÃ¢â¬â¢t show me? Do not be shy.Ã¢â¬â¢ The lion started clapping. Ã¢â¬ËCome on, dance to the rhythm!Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo grinned. He arched his neck and started moving his body in time with the lionÃ¢â¬â¢s claps, lifting one of his feet and then the other. Ã¢â¬ËExcellent, Rre, excellent!Ã¢â¬â¢ The lion shouted. Mr Flamingo smiled and carried on, shaking his tail feathers as he danced. Ã¢â¬ËYou are wonderful, Mr Flamingo,Ã¢â¬â¢ the lion said, ceasing his clapping. Ã¢â¬ËBut I want to really see you dance. You should come out of the water so you can move properly.Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬ËNo,Ã¢â¬â¢ replied Mr Flamingo. Ã¢â¬ËI should really stay in here.Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬ËBut you can only really dance on land,Ã¢â¬â¢ he said, Ã¢â¬Ëand, if you come out, I could teach you the Kwasa Kwasa.Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo looked at the lion. Ã¢â¬ËButÃ¢â¬ ¦ wonÃ¢â¬â¢t you eat me?Ã¢â¬â¢ The lion laughed again, showing a wide mouth full of shiny teeth. Ã¢â¬ËOf course I wonÃ¢â¬â¢t eat you. YouÃ¢â¬â¢re far too beautiful to eat. Ã Besides, if I ate you, I wouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t have anyone to dance for my choir.Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo raised his head. Ã¢â¬ËDo you really want me for your choir?Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬ËOf course, Rre! There is no one in all of Botswana as beautiful or as elegant as you.Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo smiled. Then he stepped slowly out of the water and onto dry land, where the lion was sitting. The lion stood up. Ã¢â¬ËWonderful. Now let me show you how to dance the Kwasa Kwasa. Come closer.Ã¢â¬â¢ Mr Flamingo stood still. He still wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t that comfortable being this close to a lion. Ã¢â¬ËDo not be afraid,Ã¢â¬â¢ purred the lion. Ã¢â¬ËShow me those long pink feathers. My goodness, they are glossy.Ã¢â¬â¢ He held out his paw. Mr Flamingo chuckled. He thought the lion must be a very clever creature to have noticed his beauty this well. He held out his wing and put it into the lionÃ¢â¬â¢s paw. However, as soon as he did so the lion growled. Then he pulled Mr Flamingo towards him and ate him up. Ã¢â¬ËOh what a silly bird,Ã¢â¬â¢ the lion said to himself. Ã¢â¬ËStill, his vanity has given me a nice full stomach.Ã¢â¬â¢ Then he walked back to his den for a nap. Soon all of the other birds came to hear what had happened to poor Mr Flamingo. The Kwasa Kwasa remains a popular element of dance culture across Botswana. However since since that day, if a flamingo in the country sees or hears it being implemented, he will always be wary of the performers.
It is a well-documented fact that war can bring out the worst in people, especially in regards to racism. The Yugoslav wars that took place from 1991 to 1995 exemplify this fact. During the Yugoslav wars the Serbs attempted to create an independent united nation and in order to do so endeavored to eliminate the Bosnia Muslims. Ã¢â¬Å"Often described as Europes deadliest conflicts since World War II, the conflicts have become infamous for the war crimes involved, including mass ethnic cleansingÃ¢â¬ (Wikipedia contributors).

During the war in Yugoslavia people who were once friends turned on those who were Muslim. In KenanÃ¢â¬â¢s story he explains how his k arate trainer betrayed him and his family by becoming a member of the secret police and eradicating his apartment of Muslims. Another neighbor, Petra, also abused the family during the war. She blackmailed the family for their possessions by threatening to turn them in to the government. Ironically, however, her husband who worked in a concentration camp was kind to Kenan, who explains, Ã¢â¬Å"Obren brought me canned beans and plum jam.

Occasionally, tragic events can bring out kindness in people, such as Obren, who remembered KenanÃ¢â¬â¢s family as friends and not simply as Muslims.

Who is the Green Knight? The Green Knight is described as an unusual and supernatural figure in the fourteenth century story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Throughout the story he is portrayed as a very confident individual who intends to play a game with one of the knights of the Round Table. In doing this, the Green Knight hopes to show that the knights of the Round Table indeed have flaws and weaknesses; this is the Green Knights overall goal. However, the Green Knight himself can be viewed as a being prone to flaws and experiencing weaknesses. As the deceitful master plan he creates develops throughout the story, so does the truth behind his intentions for such a plan. Thus, the role and purpose of the Green Knight is to beÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦He offers his head to be cut off in exchange for a counterattack. What is unusual about the Green Knight is that he is known as the Green Knight throughout the story until Sir Gawain asks him for his name: How runs your right name? (208). The Green Knight explains to Sir Gawain how he has come to be known as the Green Knight. He explains to Sir Gawain that Bercilak de Hautdesert is his real name, and because of a magical lady known as Morgan le Faye, he is transformed into such a being. The Green Knight continues to explain that the reason she does this to him is all part of a plan to undermine Arthurs knights to cause his self-destruction. Morgan le Faye, who is Arthurs half-sister, later makes her goal to destroy her brothers kingdom and place her son, Mordred, on the throne. Because of this, the Green Knight is created by her to confuse Arthur and his men, She put this shape upon me to puzzle your wits (208), as well as to scare Guinevere. In the end, the plan works, as Sir Gawain fails the test and Morgan le Fayes scheme. The Green Knights test of Sir Gawain makes it clear that no man can be virtuous in everything he does. Morgan le Fayes scheme works as she not only achieves in making Sir Gawain fall from his knightly role as chivalrous and virtuous, but also uses the Green Knight for her plan.

Question: What Is The Issues Have Become A Grave Global Concern? Answer: Introduction Mental health issues have become a grave global concern in the current decade. The causes vary hugely and may be attributed to a huge number of factors. It is mainly pre-dominant in the youth and the old age population, though there are exceptions. With the advent of globalisation there is growth and development happening at an alarming rate. This puts constant financial pressure on people across the globe. There is a constant fight for time and space in order to carve out a better niche for oneself. This often results in development of inferiority complexes within an individual. This often leads to the development of serious mental ill health conditions such as depression and anxiety. The assignment here aims at focussing upon the problems encountered in providing effective services in depression management and the benefits provided by the implementation of an integrated record system. Problem Depression may be described as a condition where the active alertness of the mind is affected. This may be caused due to mismatch in the concentration of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. As reported by Markle?Reid McAiney (2016), depression is 80% inheritable and may also be adversely affected by environmental stress. Thus, depression results in a lack of zeal in a person to live or survive resulting in development of suicidal thoughts in an individual. The external signs of depression may be expressed in the form of hyper anxieties. Some of the symptoms of hyper anxieties may result in sleep apnea in a person, lack of concentration in an individual, binge eating, aggressive behaviour. Most of the times the signs and symptoms goes unnoticed, costing the life of an individual. Death due to hyper anxieties and depression are a tragic reality affecting the youth population of Australia. As asserted by Angstman et al. (2015), weak foundations lead during the adolescent years and a disturbed family environment have often been found to act as a catalyst in such cases. The rate is high in the age group of 16- 25 in the North South Wales (NSW) youths of Australia. The rates have been almost 20 % in men compared to 18% in females often leading to hospitalizations in severe cases. The problem here could be attributed to the lack of alertness in the parent or inable to achieve sufficient counselling and support from the surrounding environment. As commented by Lohman et al.(2015),mental illness is still stigmatised by the larger part of the society across the globe. This often results in only a quarter of the population actually reporting the actual depression. However, by the time they have visited a psychologists there is already so much told and defined that the patient losses the zeal to elaborate the problem any further. This results in a huge disruption in the care-providing channel. Thus, there is a need to integrate an integrated information channel so that the successive professionals have easier access to the actual problem encountered by the patient. Moreover, lack of sufficient amounts of fund along with awareness of the local and federal government can make the situation worse. Capabilities Depression and anxiety management is a multidisciplinary area, which needs constant car and supervision. However, as commented by Gallo et al. (2013), much of the funding and care managing strategies aimed at providing relief to people suffering from depression remains unutilized. Evidences and reports have shown that 85% of the cases of depression and other mental illnesses remain unreported. This may be attributed to the lack of awareness among people regarding the signs and symptoms of depression (Corrieri et al. 2013).Recently there has been a drastically increase in the rate of suicide among the indigenous youths of the North South Wales of Australia. This may be attributed to a number of factors such as lack of parental guidance, loneliness, and peer pressure dejection in competitive and personal space. The programs have been found to be hugely effective in the control and prevention of suicides among the youth of Australia. The implementation of the my health record system ensures that the successive mental health professionals are provided with an enriched version of the case history. The treatment of mental health issues is often a complex area of health care and treatment. In this context, the recuperation and survival is subjective to transparency being maintained by the support and care service users. Moreover, the stigma possessed by the society often makes reporting about mental health conditions difficult to achieve. This results in the hiding of many important details about the past life as well as the present condition of the patient. As asserted by Teesson et al. (2014), providing incomplete and false information by the patient may affect the authenticity of the mental health treatment procedure. Benefits There are a number of benefits of the my health record system which results in maintaining transparency in the care providing channel for depression care and management. The inculcation of such programmes helps in saving time as well as additional costs being vested. The program was implemented to ensure that timely rederressal is provided to the patients reported to depict suicidal thoughts or behaviours. Additionally, the integration of a number of health channels including the general physicians, psychiatrists can help in enriched care services. Australia has seen a sharp increase in the rate of teenage suicide in the current century. Thus, some of the local and non-governrmental organizations such as Mind matters can help in advocating such causes. Conclusion The increasing pressure or competition often results in the development of a peer pressure in the minds of an impressionable youth. It may be attributed to the constant zeal to beat one another in a competition environment. The inability to cope up with the demanding situation may often result in the development of mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety in the minds of an individual. Thus, unchecked and unreported depression can often result in the development of suicidal thoughts in an individual. Therefore, the development of a health channel with integrated services can help in providing timely solution and redressal to the perils suffered by an individual. References Angstman, K.

Questions: 1. Identify and explain which of Beckys needs are not being met. 2. How does the interference with these needs effect Beckys wellbeing? Include a description of any coping techniques you have identified. 3. Is time management an issue in this scenario? If so, what changes could be made by Elaine, Becky and the other staff members? Answers: 1.Taking the Maslows hierarchy of needs into consideration, Beckys need for self-confidence, respect and self-esteem is not being met (Anderson, 2014). The esteem needs of Becky are the basis for human desire where she should be accepted and valued by others. In the case scenario, Becky waned to work on front desk and interact with clients, if she would get chance. She felt that her colleagues are laughing at her back and as a result, she was not feeling good about herself. She wanted to be praised by others and lack confidence in her life. She is having negative feelings about herself that is affecting her emotional health and well-being. Her self-esteem is not being properly met with feelings of negativity and inferiority in performing her daily tasks that depicts self-esteem needs is not being fulfilled. She is not finding a sense of accomplishment in the activities either in hobbies or professionally. As she is lacking self-esteem, she is looking for respect from others to improv e her view of herself. It is important that she need to feel good about herself so that she is able to perform her tasks diligently (Lester, 2013). Moreover, she is being recruited at the healthcare facility without any work experience and as a result, she felt nervous and require proper training so that she is able to demonstrate her skills properly. She also lacks effective communication skills and she is unable to interact with the clients at the front desk. Therefore, self-esteem and training needs are required for Becky. 2.Health problems started arising with her lack of self-esteem and self-confidence. She is not feeling confident about her ability and that is affecting her mental health. She is getting nervous, anxious and having negative feelings about herself. Strong sense of self-identity and self-esteem are very important and closely related to good mental health (Dogan, Totan Sapmaz, 2013). She is lacking sense of identity as she is developing negativity and lack of self-worth. This is affecting her overall physical and mental health. She is not having a strong sense of her own identity and found trouble in making decisions. As she is having poor self-esteem, she is gradually getting susceptible to a number of psychological problems like depression, anxiety and eating disorder. Low self-esteem is also a contributing factor for her behavior where she is having trouble in getting along with her daily tasks. To cope up with her situation, she started getting addicted to alcohol for stress management. While returning home, she started to feel upset and poured herself a large glass of wine, pizza and large bowl of ice cream. She started getting addicted to drinking and every day on her walk to home; she stopped at the liquor store and replenished her wine stock. It was an easy way for her to forget about her work with a glass of wine in the evening. She also started grinding her teeth and everyday work with a headache and felt sick that is affecting her overall health and well-being (Yen et al., 2014). 3.Time management is an issue in the scenario as she is unable to complete her tasks on time and felt overburdened. She had scheduling errors and became frustrated in doing paperwork at the front desk. With time, she was unable to cope up with the workload and manage it within the working hours. As it is evident that Becky lacked training, so Elaine as her mentor should provide her proper training in time management. Becky possesses the required skills and therefore, she should be assigned with tasks that demonstrate her skills in the best possible manner. Time management training should be given to her that can help her to reduce stress, increase productivity and improve results (Hfner, Stock Oberst, 2015). As she is a fresher, she need to be made aware of the organizational practice policies and learned so that she delivers the best. Goal accomplishment training is also required that can help her to connect the daily activities to her work and life goals. Another issue is that she lacks interpersonal communication skills with her colleagues and clients while working at the front desk. Therefore, proper training is also required in enhancing her communication skills so that there is reduction in time delays and loss in productivity due to miscommunication with clients. Active listening skills are also required, as she is getting impatient with increase in calls. These training needs are important in her both personal and professional life so that she leads a quality life (Nadinloyi et al., 2013). References Anderson, A. (2014).
