PART B_2

The statue of Ashura was first created in 734. It has survived nearly 1,300 years. However, cracks have developed on its faces and the original colors have changed. A replica with its original colors can be seen at the Nara National Museum.
Influenced by ancient Greece, a golden ornament is worn by the replica. It wears a sash which reminds of ancient India. While its red-colored skin suggests its connection to the sun god of ancient Persia. Under the ancient Greek art’s influence, the first Buddhists statues were made. As the Chinese got influenced by the West, it made a great change in Japanese art.
The Ashura has many differences from other Hachibushu. It has six arms, three faces, and a sash on its shoulders while armor is worn by the other statues. Also, the human expressions on its faces make it appear lifelike. An expert named Hirashima Hiroshi explains that Ashura’s eyes in its three faces go up which means it is mature. People always wonder what Ashura’s facial expressions mean. The left face shows anger, its right face shows regret and pain, and its central face expresses repentance.

Many people prayed for purification and worshipped Ashura as it gives them a sense of healing which could be the reason why many people are attracted to the statue.

(Please send the mispronounced words and expressions to your student.)

PART B_2

A Japanese who grew up in the U.S. shared her observation about the difference in parenting style between Japanese and American parents. American parents praise their children more often than Japanese parents. They like to give compliments to their children even for minor achievements. While on the other hand, children who have Japanese parents receive lesser compliments. This somewhat made her feel less confident.
Although she believes that constructive criticism is a way for children to improve themselves, she could not help but compare how American and Japanese parents encourage their children. Her Japanese parents would always tell her things like “if you do not study hard, you will end up jobless and homeless.” Meanwhile, her American best friend’s mother would always give her advice on how she can reach her goals despite them being difficult.
All in all, she realized that Americans do that style of parenting to ensure smooth communication with their children. While Japanese parents do not praise their children too much because they worry that it might make them too confident. So, we can say that it is a matter of preference which they think would work for the best.

PART B_2

Getting along with stress
Stress is the body’s reaction to new situations that require people to cope with it. It usually starts when people find themselves tired and unable to catch up with the demands. Although this is a normal part of one’s life and cannot be avoided, experiencing frequent stress might lead to health problems such as anxiety disorder and depression. So, it is important for people to manage stress.
There are a lot of ways to manage stress. Some of which are time management, classifying tasks, problem-focused, and emotion-focused. Time management is an important skill that everyone should develop. It is important for people to know the most important things they need to finish. This way, they will know the things that they should focus on. Then, those less important things should be scheduled at a later time. Classifying their tasks based on their importance and urgency could also come in handy. If people were given an important and urgent task, do it right away so they can free their mind from thinking too much about the things they need to accomplish. Being able to solve and find solutions to the problem during difficult situations would help reduce stress. Also, people should learn how to take note of their feelings and handle it well by breathing deeply when dealing with stressful events.

PART B_2

What is psychology?
Psychology has become one of the most popular degrees and careers in the U.S. It is the study of the human mind and behavior. Psychological studies aim to understand and explain how people act, think, and feel. Although more and more people have been studying psychology, there are still some people who do not understand psychology.
Some people think that psychologists can use their understanding of human behavior to solve crimes. While others think that psychologists just listen to their client’s stories about their childhood. Yes, there are some psychologists who help solve crimes, while some help people deal with their mental health. But there is a lot more to what we usually hear and see about psychologists. When you ask people a question about what psychologists do, more often than not, they would answer that they help people improve their mental health. That is true, however, it is just the tip of the iceberg. Psychology is a broad field that has many branches. Some of which are abnormal, biological, clinical, developmental, forensic, personality, social, and among others. These branches of psychology deal with different things. For instance, clinical psychology focuses on understanding and improvement of mental health psychology. Meanwhile, the research and ideas of forensic psychology are often used in the criminal justice system. On the other hand, social psychology searches for an understanding of group behavior and how social influences affect individual behavior. Despite having different branches, in psychology, all roads lead to Rome; to understand and explain human behavior.

PART B_2

The Unusual Architect
Ban Shigeru is an architect who became famous for using unusual materials.
On January 17, 1995, an earthquake was experienced in Hanshin area. Ban saw victims standing near their badly damaged church. So, he asked the priest if they can build a new church using paper tubes. The priest did not agree. He said that the victims’ housing is more important. But Ban did not give up and told him that the church would serve as the victims’ community center. The priest finally agreed, so they started building the church.
Ban wanted to be different from others who just wanted to work for rich people. He wanted to help the people who are affected by disasters. So, he started using paper tubes, which are strong and always available, to build disaster-relief structures, schools, and churches. Ban does not let anything stand in his way in helping people. In 2010, Haiti experienced an earthquake. The airport to Haiti was closed, so he flew to Dominican Republic and drove for six hours to Haiti. Then, he built paper-tube shelters for the victims.

PART B_2

Animals and the environment
Jane Goodall is a doctor who spent most of her life studying chimpanzees in Africa. In one of her interviews, she shared that there are a lot of things people can do to understand the animals. Two of the most important things to do is to watch and observe them.
It is common knowledge that chimpanzees and humans have a lot in common. Chimpanzees behaviors are very much alike with humans’. They are very close to their family and they care for one another. Meanwhile, male chimps are often protective of their territory, so they could be unfriendly to other chimps. But at the same time, they could also be friendly and helpful to others.
Jane Goodall has been traveling the world. She mentioned that everything in nature is connected. If one pattern is destroyed, everything could change. She hopes that the youth would know more about the environmental problems. So, she started a club for young people to help the animals and the environment. Goodall believes that everyone has their own responsibility in changing the world.

PART B_2

Immigration problem in the European Union
An immigration problem has been growing by leaps and bounds in the European Union. Every day, thousands of immigrants decide to hit the road to reach Europe but the problem is the lack of law and ideas on how they can safely be distributed among the member states of the European Union. The disagreement and division between the Western and Eastern European states about the opening and closing the borders have made the crisis worse because of their economic situation which is going downhill.
The crisis reached its peak in 2008 and became a great concern when many immigrants arrived because of a financial crisis in the USA. However, to think that immigration is a sudden invasion is a mistake because it is a characteristic of the European Union. In fact, the unsuccessful distribution of immigrants is one of the causes of the crisis. They thought opening the borders was a positive idea until it went out of hand because of the increasing number of the European Union’s members. Also, one of the causes of the increasing number of immigrants going to Europe is the civil war in Arab countries which put people’s lives in great danger. Some immigrants who were kept out of a country and others who were taken in both suffer because of poor living conditions. International law aims to protect the immigrants by giving the countries the ability to control their borders. However, they must accept the fact that their right to work and qualify for welfare benefits are limited. It is also a way for the European Union to protect their economic situation which could be affected by the rising number of immigrants.
