Transcript: Esperanza is curious as to what is in her heart and mind, so she decides to visit a witch woman, Elenita. The witch woman believes that with cards, water and palm leaves that she will be able to see Esperanza's inner thoughts of her past, present and future. Elenita believed that she saw a "home in the heart". However, Esperanza only saw "bubbles" when looking into the water. Cisneros uses a variety of imagery in this vignette of hers such as, "Her T.V. is color and big and all her pretty furniture made out of red fur like the teddy bears they give away in carnivals. She had them covered with plastic. I think this is on account of the baby." and "The top of the refrigerator busy with holy candles, some lit, some not, red and green and blue, a plaster saint and a dusty Palm Sunday cross, and a picture of a voodoo hand taped to the wall." This text produces a vivid image as to what Elenita's home looks like. Another example of a literary device is "The top of the refrigerator busy with holy candles, some lit, some not, red and green and blue, a plaster saint and a dusty Palm Sunday cross, and a picture of a voodoo hand taped to the wall." This is an example of personification because it is telling us that the "refrigerator is busy" meaning that the refrigerator is crowded with the items that were mentioned. Examples of sound devices used are: "Witch woman, wipes" which is an example of alliteration used to make reading the piece a little more fun and entertaining to read. "A home in the heart" is an example of repetition used to emphasize the symbolism of how Esperanza will never forget where she came from. Sandra Cisneros uses the writing of prose as if the vignette was a fictional novel. For much of the vignette Esperanza is carrying on a conversation with Elenita by asking questions like, "Is that it?" and answering questions saying, "Nope, just bubbles." You might also say that she displays some poetic elements by sharing imagery, repetition, similes and more devices found in poetic writing. When taking tests in school, some students pick an answer and later they are questionable as to whether or not their original answer was correct. However,I've always been taught to "Go with my gut" or in other words, pick my original answer that I chose because it was what my heart thought was the best answer even though I might not have thought that at first. This relates to the vignette because Esperanza thought she knew what was in her heart, but discovers otherwise. "Despite what you might believe you are thinking, your heart will always speak the truth." This theme fits this vignette because Esperanza did not know what she was thinking or what might happen in her future until Elenita said that she sees "a home in the heart". Esperanza then realized that she didn't know all that she thought she knew. Another appropriate theme for this vignette is "You never forget where you came from." We see this when Elenita tells us what she sees in Esperanza's heart. She explains how she sees "A new house, a house made of heart." This tells us that Esperanza thinks of her home as where her heart belongs. Sandra Cisneros conveys a very loose critical approach in this vignette of hers. She displays feeling of socio- economics in Elenita, Cards, Palm, Water. We see this conveyed when Elenita is looking into Esperanza's thoughts and she sees a home that Esperanza cannot afford for herself or her family.

Transcript: David Ray Ms. Rosenbaum AP English Language and Composition- 1A September 16, 2011 Never Would Have Guessed It When I was younger, speaking in front of people was a big deal to me. Back then, I found it very difficult to stand in front of a large group of people. I am sure that we all remember our grade school years, when we had to do the Tropicana Speech; it was undoubtedly difficult for all of us. I distinctly remember doing my speech in front of the school and messing up: badly, very badly. It didn’t end up bothering me too much though, as I ended up taking 2nd place in the competition anyways. If anything, the experience helped me get over my problem. Regardless, it is easy to see that today I have long overcome my troubles with speaking in front of others and that it is no longer a big deal to me. The Most Comfortable Pants in the World On Christmas of last year, I, along with Andrew Baldridge, surprised Talon with a gift that he definitely did not expect. Around this time, my friends and I had arranged a "white elephant" of sorts, without the element of surprise. Nobody could decide what to get for Talon, so together Andrew and I developed an ingenious idea that would soon become what is basically the greatest gift of all time. We bought a pair of cheap jeans (very, very, cheap) and a pillow, which (in reference to joke) we sowed onto the inside of the jeans, in order to give the wearer of the pants the most comfortable butt in the world. To top it off, we wrote "Most Comfortable" on the back of the pants for good measure. Needless to say, this gift was very funny for everybody, and comfortable. The only thing that could have made this story better is if we had used memory foam rather than a pillow on the pants. What Were We Mad About Again? I have been close friends with Talon Bullard for many years. Like we all know, when friends are together for a long time, they will quickly forgive and forget any arguments they may have had in the past, emphasis on forget. Several years ago (probably in 2005 or 2006) Talon and I went on a summer trip together. During this trip, Talon had gotten sick to the point where he had lost his voice completely; he had to whisper everything or his words would be inaudible. At some point during the trip, for reasons beyond me, we had gotten into an argument. The same day, we went canoeing together: bad idea. I sat in the front of the canoe and, naturally, Talon sat in the back. Throughout the duration of the trip, I was constantly turning around and yelling something stupid that a ten year old kid would say (as I was ten years old, probably), and Talon would immediately attempt to yell something back, but his voice would instead simply trail off into silence. It is amazing that we never tipped the canoe over. Years later, we are still very close friends who look back and laugh about just how foolish we once were. For the life of me, I still cannot remember what we had fought about. Trust Me, it is This Way A few years back, I had once gone on an orienteering course in the woods with a group of people I knew. The basic idea behind the course was for us to use a compass and count paces (for distance) to find our way from point A to B, and so on. I distinctly remember determining which way to go, when one of the other members told us the way he thought was correct, a way very much different from mine. However, I decided to follow his path, as I had cared far too much about his opinion. We did not finish the course for hours. Never Knew I Changed When I was very young, I grew up as a rather shy child. I grew up with my neighbor, whom I consider to be my older brother. After spending many years with this person, I ended up being the outgoing person I am today. I had never noticed this change occurring while it was happening, but I know that much of it was due to him. Hilarious One Year Later Vignettes Ugh...


Transcript: Symptoms: A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults in the US. Past History: History of present illness: CLINICAL VIGNETTE... Shoulder Tear rotator cuff Abduction A 70 year old female returns today for re-evaluation of her R and L shoulder. Her R shoulder is improving with phsical therapy. She does have some pain anteriorly. Her L shoulder is continuing to cause her severe discomfort and pain at night time primarily. Now, she has difficulty reaching, grasping, pulling, and pushing to the L shoulder. Her pain is worsend and at this time she would like to proceed with L shoulder surgery. Treatment Plan: 140 degrees 70 degrees 40 degrees 90 degrees Findings: Shoulder Motion is Restricted THANK YOU!!! There are different types of tears. Partial Tear. This type of tear damages the soft tissue, but does not completely sever it. Full-Thickness Tear. This type of tear is also called a complete tear. It splits the soft tissue into two pieces. In many cases, tendons tear off where they attach to the head of the humerus. With a full-thickness tear, there is basically a hole in the tendon. 90 degrees Right Left Normal Take home points: Laboratory Findings: History of present illness: Name: Caradaga, Adelaide DOB: April 26, 1968 DOI: June 26, 2014 Claim Number: 000690-006258-WC-01 History of present illness: 70 degrees 40 degrees 90 degrees ICD codes: 726.13 (L Partial Tear Rotatr Cuff) 726.2 (L Shoulder Region DIS NEC) External Rotation The most common symptoms of a rotator cuff tear include: Pain at rest and at night, particularly if lying on the affected shoulder Pain when lifting and lowering your arm or with specific movements Weakness when lifting or rotating your arm Crepitus or crackling sensation when moving your shoulder in certain positions Laboratory Findings: 180 degrees • The minimal invasiveness of the procedure will allow for quicker healing when compared to more serious surgeries. • Arthroscopy allows for less scarring and scar tissue so that you will have better movement in your arm and shoulder. • You will be able to regain more use from your arm and shoulder when compared to living with the damage or inflammation that was hindering it. • Arthroscopic procedures cause minimal blood loss. This allows for less bruising and pain during recovery. Acute Tear If you fall down on your outstretched arm or lift something too heavy with a jerking motion, you can tear your rotator cuff. This type of tear can occur with other shoulder injuries, such as a broken collarbone or dislocated shoulder. There are definite benefits to choosing shoulder arthroscopy. Not only will you gain the benefits of a repaired shoulder, but also the arthroscopic procedure itself is much more beneficial than choosing standard types of invasive surgeries. Statistics/Evidence based practice: Let's start!!!! Arthroscopy remains the safest form of surgery in treatment of shoulder tear rotator cuff Several factors contribute to degenerative, or chronic, rotator cuff tears. Repetitive stress. Repeating the same shoulder motions again and again can stress your rotator cuff muscles and tendons. Baseball, tennis, rowing, and weightlifting are examples of sports activities that can put you at risk for overuse tears. Many jobs and routine chores can cause overuse tears, as well. Lack of blood supply. As we get older, the blood supply in our rotator cuff tendons lessens. Without a good blood supply, the body's natural ability to repair tendon damage is impaired. This can ultimately lead to a tendon tear. Bone spurs. As we age, bone spurs (bone overgrowth) often develop on the underside of the acromion bone. When we lift our arms, the spurs rub on the rotator cuff tendon. This condition is called shoulder impingement, and over time will weaken the tendon and make it more likely to tear. 140 degrees 90 degrees 180 degrees ICD/CPT Codes: Past History: Case Study: Demographics Causes: CPT code: 29826 (L shoulder Arthroscopy with Subacromial decompression) Continue physical therapy for the R shoulder Home exercise program Candidate for L shoulder arthroscopy with subacromial decompression and debridement Requesting an Ultrasling, physical therapy 12 sessions post operatively and assistant surgical assist for the L shoulder A rotator cuff tear is a common cause of pain and disability among adults. In 2008, close to 2 million people in the United States went to their doctors because of a rotator cuff problem. A torn rotator cuff will weaken your shoulder. This means that many daily activities, like combing your hair or getting dressed, may become painful and difficult to do. Flexion Degenerative Tear Most tears are the result of a wearing down of the tendon that occurs slowly over time. This degeneration naturally occurs as we age. Rotator cuff tears are more common in the dominant arm. If you have a degenerative tear in one shoulder, there is a greater risk for a rotator cuff tear in the opposite shoulder -- even if you
