PART B_2

A Japanese woman who lives and works in the U.S. shared her experiences and observations with the communication style used in an American and a Japanese company.

When giving compliments, Americans usually say four positive comments before giving one criticism. This is what she learned from a workshop in New York. The workshop instructor mentioned that people would easily accept criticism if they feel that their efforts are acknowledged and appreciated. So, she tried this style when she was managing 200 volunteers. Indeed, the volunteers felt that their efforts are appreciated, and so, their quality of work improved which later on enabled them to establish smooth communication. Because of that, she proved that it is effective. This style of communication also helped her strengthen her working relationship with her American boss.
On the other hand, she experienced the opposite communication style when she worked for a Japanese company. She mentioned that her Japanese boss would often focus on pointing out her weaknesses rather than her strengths. Although this style was a bit of a challenge for her emotionally, she used it as her motivation to work harder and be better to achieve her goals.
Having been able to experience both communication styles made her realize their advantages and disadvantages. She also mentioned that an appropriate style must be adopted for each individual with consideration to cultural differences to help them grow both personally and professionally.

A Clean Environment for Everyone
All living things on Earth, such as humans, animals, and plants are supported by the environment. It provides food, water, shelter, and everything that is essential for daily survival. Humans’ choices and actions affect the health of the environment which also affects humans’ health, economies, and communities.
The environment can greatly affect humans’ health. A research about human health proves that being in a clean environment can affect humans’ health by improving their attention, boosting their moods, and making their bodies fight against different diseases. That is the reason why it is important for humans to maintain a clean environment, especially in the places where they live in. However, due to activities in the modern world, the environment is getting damaged day by day. Air and water pollution have become the major problems in most parts of the world. Toxic pollutants affect the quality of air and water through man-made chemicals from households and factories. Exposure to these pollutants could make humans at risk for diseases and weaken their body defenses. In addition to that, unborn babies could also be at risk for physical abnormalities that could affect their lives in the long run. Nowadays, there are many ways in which everyone could join in cleaning the environment. One of the most popular ways is recycling. By recycling materials, the amount of waste that causes pollution could be lessened. Another way is reusing materials such as plastic bags and water bottles to lessen the use of fossil fuel that is required to make plastic materials.
Looking after the environment is every human’s responsibility. It is important to make Earth a better place for the future generations.

Walt Disney
Walter Elias Disney, also known as Walt Disney, pioneered the animated cartoon films. He is famous for creating cartoons such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.
Disney wanted to become a cartoonist for a newspaper ever since he was in high school. So, he worked as a photographer and made drawings for their school paper while studying cartooning on the side.
In 1919, Disney worked in a commercial art studio where he met Ub Iwerks, a young artist who significantly contributed to his success. They started their own small studio in 1922 where they created one and two-minute animated films and produced a series of animated films. Unfortunately, Disney was forced to file for bankruptcy in 1923 after a New York film distributor took advantage of their works.
The unexpected success of one of his first animated films forced Disney to reopen his business in Hollywood together with his brother Roy. Walt was also able to convince Iwerks to work with them.
Over the years, they produced full length animated films that became popular all over the world. Their business did not stop from making animated films. Walt’s creative mind enabled them to build a huge amusement park that captured the hearts of many people; the children and the young at heart.

Housing Project
Ban Shigeru, a Japanese architect, started the Voluntary Architect’s Network (VAN) in the year 1995. It is an NGO that aims to help the victims of natural disasters such as earthquakes. Although relief houses are only temporary, he believes that they should be beautiful as they would be very significant for displaced people because they are also damaged spiritually so it is important for them to see something beautiful.
A survivor of 3/11 was so happy upon moving into Ban’s housing in Miyagi. He said that it was his first time to feel a real sense of relief since the disaster. Many people wanted to stay in Miyagi housing for good.
In 2014, Ban won the Pritzker Architecture Prize which some people call the Nobel Prize of architecture. One of the judges said that it is nice to see a first-rate architect put an effort to help disaster victims. This award encourages him to keep on helping people. Ban promises that he will continuously look for ways to grow both in disaster relief and designing new buildings.

PART B_2

Growing up in America with Japanese parents made a Japanese girl realize the differences in parenting styles between Japanese and American parents. She mentioned that American parents encourage their children by giving praises. They like to give compliments every day by recognizing even their smallest efforts. While Japanese parents praise their children lesser than the Americans. For instance, her American classmate would get a big hug from her parents even if she only got B’s on her report card. Meanwhile, her parents would often say that she should have studied better despite getting an A+. Because of that, it made her realize that she must work harder to achieve greater things in life. But on the other hand, it made her less confident and became reluctant in trying new things.
She believes that constructive criticism is an important tool for children to learn things, however, she could not help but notice how Japanese and American parents give encouragement. Her parent’s way of motivating is by telling her that she will end up jobless if she does not study harder. Meanwhile, her best friend’s mother would motivate her by saying things positively which made her look forward to it.

In the end, she realized that Americans prefer that style to ensure that they establish smooth communication with their children. While the Japanese prefer to praise their children less to make sure that they would not become conceited. In parenting, it is a matter of preference, there is no right or wrong.

PART B_2

Poisonous animals can kill other living things by using poison. However, the poisonous substances inside their bodies do not affect them at all. They use one of the two basic strategies to avoid getting poisoned. Some animals use the first strategy wherein they keep the components of their poison in separate compartments. Others use the second strategy wherein they improve their bodies to become more resistant to poison.

PART C_1

I will read aloud the lecture part for 90 seconds. Please take down notes while I am reading. After that, please read aloud the lecture part.

PART C_2

Have you ever wondered how poisonous animals get to poison other living things but never themselves? In this lesson, we will be discussing the two basic strategies they use: securing the storage of toxins inside their bodies and gradually developing their ability to resist poison.
Let’s start with the first strategy. Some poisonous animals securely store the components of their poison inside their bodies. But why does it not affect them? Let’s use the bombardier beetle as an example. This kind of beetle prevents poisoning itself by keeping the components of its caustic spray in two different compartments located in its abdomen. When the components get mixed together, they create a violent chemical reaction that sends out caustic spray. The spray gets shoot out of the glands but does not affect the beetle as it passes through a hardened chamber that protects the beetle’s organs.
The second strategy focuses on animals improving their ability to resist poison by producing special proteins that inactivate the toxin in their blood. Just like bombardier beetles, snakes also keep their venom in a special compartment located behind their eyes. However, as for snakes, they let a small amount of venom run throughout their bloodstream so they can strengthen their immunity to poison.
These two basic strategies help poisonous animals to be safe and immune to their own toxins.

PART E_2

Colorblindness is a condition where people cannot tell certain colors. Most people who are colorblind simply cannot differentiate colors. For example, they see blue as purple and pink. Humans make their own interpretations of colors through retinal cone cells found in humans’ eyes that respond to wavelengths of light reflected from objects that are different in colors. Meanwhile, colorblind people cannot make their own interpretation of colors because their eyes do not respond the same way with those people who have normal visions.

PART F_2

Let’s talk about the speech by Bryan Kett who is colorblind. Colorblindness is a condition where people cannot tell certain colors. Kett explained in one of his speeches how and what do people with colorblindness see. People with color blind simply cannot differentiate colors. For example, he sees green as reddish or brownish. While blue looks purple and pink. So, if you show him a green shirt, he would see it as brown but unsure of it. However, he is certain that it is not blue.
Humans make their own interpretations of colors through retinal cone cells found in humans’ eyes that respond to wavelengths of light reflected from objects that are different in colors. These cells pass information to the brains. So, people who have standard vision see different colors because their cones trigger in specific ratios which create a unique response that tells the specific color of the objects. Meanwhile, it is not the same case for colorblind people. Their cones are not in the same ratios which do not create a unique response. That is why they do not see the specific colors of the object.

The first point in the passage explains that most people who are colorblind simply cannot differentiate colors. The professor mentions that people with colorblindness see green as reddish or brownish and blue as purple and pink. So, if you show a colorblind person a green shirt, s/he would see it as brown. The second point in the passage explains that humans make their own interpretations of colors through retinal cone cells found in humans’ eyes that respond to wavelengths of light reflected from objects that are different in colors. Meaning, people with colorblindness do not trigger their cones in the same ratios. This is the reason why they do not see specific colors of objects.
