Angkor Wat Entrance through Years

Do you know we could tell a story through the map? If you click on the link below, this will lead you to the two pictures. They indicates the entrance to Angkor Wat Temple between 2012 to 2019. Some differences may be shown through the two pictures. In 2012, there’s only one bridge for the tourists to enter the historical scenery of Cambodia, but in 2019, they built a new bridge for people to travel into the temple. The new bridge was called the floating bridge. In addition, in 2012, there weren’t many houses nearby the street, compared to 2019, many houses stayed next to the street. There are more stories that you can tell throughout these two photos.

How to be happy when you get a fever

“How to be happy when you get a fever”

by Cheatra Chheng

Happiness is defined as a state of pleasure and contentment. Furthermore, happiness comes from the feeling that is influenced by the environment. Also, being happy is not only about the smile we cannot be absolutely sure if this person is happy or not based on one clue:  their facial expression. Therefore, everyday conditions including health, hobbies and many more, may consider how do we feel toward them.

Health is one of the factors that create a happy feeling for all of us. Unfortunately, not everyone lives with good health which can lead them to be unhappy. That is okay because life is not constantly about happiness but there’s also some sad stories that you will need to face. In addition, fever is one of the illnesses which causes you to be unhappy. However, there are two common phrases that you might find encouraging:  “problems always have solutions” and “you cannot change the situation but you can change your reaction”. Despite the fact that you have a fever, it doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy the time it takes you to recover. We know that the situation doesn’t appear to be good but importantly you can change your reaction. Moreover, there are some steps that you may like to try while you are sick. 

Step 1: Take a relaxing warm shower 

Feeling relaxed is all that we want for the summer break, going to the beach for an example. Getting a fever can make you feel unrelaxed. Wikihow is an online community that wrote about how-to guides for online people to explore and read, has mentioned that “baths wash away dirt and grime, and they also help you feel better when you’re sick.” According to my own experience, when I had a fever, everything that is negative came to my mind which made me hard to rest and worried. However, taking the warm shower will help you to let your mind sits, relax and can lower the temperature inside our body. Importantly, when you are taking a warm shower, you should be thinking about the positive things that you ever had in your life. For instance, you could think of any good memories that you had and enjoy with the shower. 

Step 2: Rest

If you are a student, you will perhaps have some assignments that your teacher gave you. If you are an employee you would need to think about your work. Fever brings you tiredness so you will be exhausted for the whole day. If you are exhausted, you need to rest because you won’t enjoy doing your work. In this situation, you can lay down and give yourself a mental and physical rest. You do not need to worry about anything that could distract you including homework as well. Centennial Medical Group (CMG)  is a group practice of caring and helping the community to be better at knowing how to do self-help when having an illness quotes “ Medicine and fluids can help make you feel better when you do get sick, but what your body really needs is bed rest. “ Even if you don’t feel exhausted at all, but probably you will recover soon after the rest.

Step 3: Spend some time in nature

During the time you are having a fever, you do not really want your body to do any physical actions. However, it is a good idea for you to get outdoors and relax in nature that is around us. Very well mind, trusted online resources that improve the mental health condition of the  right guidance provides, states that “Green is thought to relieve stress and help heal” and “Green is often used in decorating for its calming effect.” As such, in nature, we can sit down, relax or reading books. Importantly, the air that we get inside our house is different from the fresh air that nature gives so we could recover faster and also release stress.

All in one, fever is also not a bad thing for us, though it kills all the bacteria inside our body. When you have a fever once, be happy and you can follow these steps. One last quote from Julia Roberts wrote “ A fever is an expression of inner rage. “ Therefore, we can consider fever as a good thing to happen for us and we are lucky to have a fever. 

Negative Numbers, (-1 and -2)

     Negative numbers are the essential part that we use in everyday life, without realizing. Within this round, we learned about the negative numbers that some of us have known before but this lesson could remind us, too. I have learned it in the past, but I forgot some of the basic things in the negative numbers. Negative integers are used to represent things as temperature, money purpose, and etc.

Comfort with Uncertainty

Photo by: Chanda Cheng

These outdoor trips help me to learn and grow myself. 

    As apart of Outdoor Leadership exploration, I got to learn the main question is” How to lead ourself when we are in outdoor?” This question got solve when diving deeper into the exploration. The topic that related to the main question I asked myself is the survival skill. We learned about how we could rescue a victim when the victim is in an emergency. If we are not sure what happened to the victim yet and using traditional medicine or don’t know what to do in that situation, we could kill the victim immediately. As such, I got to learn the steps to rescue a patient in an emergency situation,

1- Scene Safety

2- Primary Assessment

3- Secondary Assessment 

4- Rescue Plan

I learned about all of those steps in class and we practiced the lessons on the campus also. This could be a helpful reference because it appears that I want to be a doctor. Furthermore, we had two trips in this exploration which we went to Kirirum and Mondulkiri. I love the two trips so much because I have experienced many brand new things that I haven’t tried out before, and the trips have made my thoughts open to hundreds of stories which I interest in.

In Kirirum, I really love the weather there, it was drizzled and a little cold. The cold breeze that blew to me every time has strengthed up my power to continued walking to my destination. I remembered once when I was sitting down and I was so exhausted and suddenly the wind just blew across me. I closed my eyes and just got the touch of the wind to my skin. I also love the landscape there, the trail in the middle and the sides are the trees stood straight in lines with small green grass on the ground. This scenery really caught my attention and boost my relaxation and calmness level. My third highlight is when I got to sit and watch the sunrise. It was the greatest moment ever to watch the sunrise with my friends and my facilitators. While I was watching the sunrise, the hornbill flew nearby on the trees under the cliff. I got a binocular and I zoomed in to see the hornbill clearly. Luckily, I could see the hornbill, it was lovely to use the binocular following every movement of the hornbill. In Mondulkiri, I got so interested in the waterfall. The water was quite cold and it can refresh many negative thoughts out of my mind and inscribe with the beautiful piece of art in my brain. I didn’t want to move out of the enchanting waterfall that I faced. The waterfall melody can awaken thousands of surprise to me. It’s a hard way of trekking but in the end, it paid off with the delightful waterfall. Another highlight is what I have never tried before and it now becomes one of my favorite food which is Phnuong soup, I got to taste the soup and the soup was very delicious. I wish to myself I could taste the food several more times and cook it.

Even though the trips sounded really fun, there were still some obstacles that I met. One of my difficulties in Mondulkiri was the leeches. I was the first one who got bitten by a leech. At the first time seeing it, I was not quite scared of them but when the whole group started to panic because there were more of them, I started to feel anxious even more. At this point, my mind started to think of some types of wild creatures that I afraid of such as geckos. I tried to calm myself in the situation while I was really uncomfortable. That didn’t really work. However, the relaxation worked until we came to the waterfall. The touch and the harmony of the waterfall – the coldest water ever – aided me to increase my calmness and relaxation. Therefore, the solution got solved and I was very impressed with myself that I could be relaxed and calmed down. This was a big challenge for me but I overcome it – I had to use my bare hands to pick it out of my legs. Thanks to the waterfall for letting other people relax by the music you have created.  

Moreover, leadership roles are essential for me because I need to use those in this exploration since we were in a group of different personalities. Once, I have shown my leadership role which is a designated leader. At that time, I saw everybody was quite busy with all of their works. I thought that it was really busy for themselves to wash their own lunch boxes. As such, I’ve decided to speak up ” Ok! Let’s wash all of the lunch boxes for our team,” In fact, I have never been a designated leader before but that situation appeared to me that I could use the designated leader as my leadership roles. I considered being a designated leader does not need to be a tough or strong person. I could start being a designated leader from this experience. 

Being part of the group in Outdoor Leadership exploration was a new experience for me. It allowed me to give love and to see the beauty of nature that I have never focused before. The way that it designed itself to be. Challenges were being accepted by me so a solution must be accepted too. Comfort with Uncertainty is now what I understand and I learned. This journey was the best moment in my life that I could find my true happiness. (One more photo to go through for the end)

Color-Coded Lyrics

Creating a new product was never easy but instead, we should take a deep breath and working hard to approach success. 

Round five of Multimedia/Technology class, I worked on a project using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere Pro. Cindy, our teacher gave us the time for us to review the lessons that we learned in the whole year and we were allowed to work on our own project using some of the tools we have learned.

I chose my own project which is to create a color-coded lyrics video – a type of lyrics video that is used for a group of singers – with the color filter for the person who is singing and the rest of the team will be in a blackout filter. Before this project, Getting to watch other songs that have the color -coded lyrics had been a very wonderful feeling to me. To me, I definitely wanted to create the video before but thought that it will be a big challenge and that I would need to spend a lot of time on the video. Therefore, I changed my mind and I didn’t make it succeed. However, when there is a chance for me to create a product as the result of the round for Multimedia class, I decided to make a color-coded lyrics video. I took a deep breath and was ready for the beginning of my journey and the steps that I have to face before meeting success. The work reference is a video on Youtube that I watched called How to create color-coded lyrics. The video was extremely useful but there were some obstacles that I still needed to face. One of the problems was I couldn’t find the tools in Photoshop because I was using a different workspace from the video so I asked my friend and he helped me to find the solution. Also, the video only showed how to make the cover of the video but not putting the lyrics and changing the filter. Therefore, I needed to find a way for myself to have a product at the end. While I was putting the lyrics end, there was one more issue – I couldn’t find the fonts that worked for Korean fonts so I looked for help on the internet. I tried to follow the steps that the internet showed me but it didn’t work smoothly. As such, I made the decision to ask my friend again. However, he also did what I just did from the internet and it didn’t work again. Frustration started running in my brain and increased the feeling of disappointment. I didn’t give up though, I tried looking for the Korean font in the font tool. Fortunately, I saw a font with Korean words so I clicked and it worked the way I wanted. Fascination started taking control of the frustration in my feeling and helped to save the loss of happiness back. I was quite enthusiastic and started to work and work on the project until I would finish and the outcome is what I expected it to be.  

I enjoyed working on the project so much; I really love the work that I have done. To me, it is such a great accomplishment. This was a new experience for me. “Watching others have it is very interesting but never look down on yourself that you can’t do it.”: a quote from me. I wish I could have my own time, spending time to create the video again and I would always accept the chances that I have.  Here is the product below this article:

Acids and Bases

What are Acids and Bases? How do they act in daily life?

Acids and bases are our main courses during this journey of the class. We have read the article in CK12 to understand more about them. They look definitely similar but somehow they are different. Then, what are they?

Acid

Therefore, what is an acid, so acid is an ionic compound that creates positive hydrogen (H+) when dissolved in water. Sour taste is the property of acid, which all sour tastes are acid such as lemon, orange and more (warning: Never taste an unknown substance ). Moreover, the acid also conducts electricity because it consists of charged particles in the solution. Acid is also important in the world because some products contain acid. For example, sulfuric acid is used to manufacture many products such are paper, paint, and detergent. There is also a way to detect acid, which we use an indicator. An indicator will change the color when acids come to contact with. An example of the indicator is a compound named red cabbage. Red cabbage is a liquid chemical that will changes the color depends on how much acid contain in some products including vinegar, sodium bicarbonate, bleach and more. You can also try to test the acid in your drinks too like coca cola, or sprite. While pouring the red cabbage indicator in another liquid, combine together will change the color. Then you can use the pH scale to notice whether how high or low is the acid in that liquid.

Base

A base is an ionic compound that produces negative hydrogen (OH-)  when dissolved in water. Also base shares its own certain property as well, including bitter taste. All bases have bitter taste including soap, coffee and more. In addition, the base feels slippery, you can imagine how slippery soap is. Therefore, soap is also including in base. Like acids, bases also conduct electricity because they consist of charged particles in the solution. Bases incorporate in certain products including soap, bleach, and so on. We can use red cabbage indicator to detect both acids and bases.

This picture shows the level of pH Scale. Under the pH of 7 are acids and above the pH of 7 are bases. 

The Sparkle Happiness

“Enjoy your life as much as possible because it is your happiness that you have found!”

From Pinterest

The theme of this round in English Literacy is Happiness. As hearing the word “Happiness”, I could understand the class will have an effect on the life that we have every day.  At first, without learning about happiness, I assumed happiness as enjoy and be happy with family and only about family. However, after learning about this, I have realized how happiness is connected to life. Every piece of our life may consider having happiness. Some people might think happiness is related to money while others also assume happiness is not including failure, struggle, and tears in their life. A quote said that” Everybody wants to be happy, nobody wants to be in pain. But you can’t have a rainbow without any rain”. The quote has shown that you can’t have happiness without any pain at all. Accept the struggles and failures you made because they can lead you the way to seek your own happiness. Whereas, money is not all related to happiness even though you have much money and you are happy. However, the study said that if we use our money to give to other people, they will be happy and we are happy too. This is the way of getting happiness by using money. Moreover, emotional well being and life evaluation are also connected. The distinctions between those two are emotional well being is the quality of a person’s experience every day such as joy, sadness, anxiety, excitement, and more, while life evaluation is person’s thought about his or her life. It’s also good to think about emotional well being but it’s also good to think about how your life evaluation’s going on.

Overall, this round taught me clearly about what is happiness and also how to reach it. Importantly, from what I studied, I could find my own happiness, the real and true happiness ever.

The Study of Percentage

20% is equal to 0.2

With this round, percentage is what we have learned and practiced. I like learning about percentage because there are numbers and we can use fraction and decimal in this lesson. Percentage is developing the world to be easier in some ways. It makes people life easier in knowing what is the overall number of what number. For instance, 100% is the overall number of percentage so if you have 20% of all the candy in the shop which means that you have 20% of 100%. Compare to whole number, that you have 65 candies of all the candies in the shop. As we can see, the information that they provide is not sufficient which means we don’t know the overall candies in the shop. Therefore, percentage is the way easier in usage for the world of math. However, if we would like to know what is 20% equal to, the requirement is rather to know the overall percentage is equal to whole  number or the remaining candies in the shop which is 80% is equal to whole number. If 100% is equal to 50 candies so how can we find 20%. In addition, 20% of 100% is alike 20% of 50 candies. As I said before, fraction and decimal are all relate to fraction so we can change 20% to fraction and as well as decimal. Then we got 20/100 or 0.2 and because 50 is the whole number of 20% so we take 50 times 20/100 ( 20% ). After that, we got 10 which also means we buy 10 candies out of 50 candies in the shop. Clearly, we could understand how percentage made world easier.

Also, we have practiced transferring decimal to percentage and percentage to fraction and decimal. It made me clearer after practiced some of the exercises. Overall, I have enjoyed studying percentage that I assume would necessary for any situations.
