Who Am I
Patrick Joyner
Norfolk State University
January 21, 2016

Who am I? My name is Patrick Joyner. I am a black male born and raised in New York City in the borough of Brooklyn. I am currently 25 years old and I attend Norfolk State University with the hopes of getting my bachelor’s degree in psychology and becoming a correctional psychologist. Right now in life I’m not exactly where I want to be, so I strive in school and as a person to be where I want to be. Along the way I have made some mistakes and some regrets that have shaped my personality and who I am today.
Growing Up In the Hood
Brownsville
The area I grew up in was Brownsville, or as I like to call it “Crownsville”. Some would call it the hood or a bad neighborhood, but I guess that depends on what lens you are looking at it from; sure it was gangs and stuff but to me growing up was not difficult at least in my eyes. Having been in a single parent household my mother was strict on me and my older brother which helped us get a clear picture of the world around us as we grew up. Living in Brownsville could be considered a challenge for those who only knew the streets or their home was compromised of the streets as well. I am blessed to come from a background where family is valued so I was never really on my own until I left for the Navy. I guess you can say I stayed in a child’s place until I was ready to be a man.
The Navy, Regrets, and Today
Navy
My mother is the role mode of my life and we share a strong and personal bond that remains intact today. My mother is the one to convinced me to join the military, at first I thought she wanted to follow after my brother who had went in before me, but I realized she was generally concerned about what I would be doing with my life and how it would help me to mature etc.. In my 4 years in the navy I learned what it’s like to have your own money,…...

A Brilliant Madness

...Doty Dr. Aaron New Abnormal Psychology 20 April 2012 Patty Duke suffers from manic-depressive disorder. She had no clue that she actually had a mental illness till she was thirty five. She always knew something was wrong with her but never really had it checked out. Patty Duke was a celebrity so she could have gotten help throughout the whole time she was in her teen years to when she was diagnosed. I read the book A Brilliant Madness: Living with Manic-Depressive Illness. It is a biography of Patty Duke’s life.  In this book Patty Duke, with the help of the medical writer Gloria Hochman, discusses her struggle as an actress with bipolar disorder, and gives many details about the symptoms and treatments of manic depression.   Patty Duke is very credible as an author because the part of the book that she wrote is a biography.   Gloria Hochman is also credible as a writer because she is a professional medical author.          A Brilliant Madness describes the different levels of manic depression, the signs and symptoms of it, and the treatments that follow.   It goes into great detail when recognizing certain behavioral patterns and describes the different situations that others have experienced. The book even describes the medications used in treating the disorder.   It mainly talks about the use of lithium as a medication, which is very effective for the majority of people who take it (including Patty).   The book discusses lesser used medications like......

Agreeable by Jonathan Franzen

...responsibilities and involvement. As people who have the power to create life, they have the duty to build their child’s character and teach values. In “Agreeable” however, Patty finds another inspiration source. “They [school athletic programs] basically saved her life and gave her a chance to realize herself as a person. […] It was from these wonderful coaches that Patty learned discipline, patience, focus, teamwork, and the ideals of good sportsmanship that helped make up for her morbid competitiveness and low self-esteem” (Franzen 43). Parents are supposed to be the major support for a child to help them psychologically grow until they are autonomous enough to live by themselves. Patty learns to count only on herself early because “Joyce was always driving Patty’s siblings […]. Most weekday she [Patty] came home very late on the jock bus. She knew not to bother calling her parents” (Franzen 52). Patty is always by herself since Joyce favoured her siblings; it leads Patty to an early maturity and a sense of responsibility that an adult would have. Also, parents are required to protect their children since those one have access to less resources. When Patty comes home with “bruises and unhappy demeanor” (Franzen 48) Joyce doesn’t notice. But Coach Nagel does, she “got suspicious and spied on her in the locker room. Sat Patty down in her office and confronted her” (Franzen 48). Needless to say that Joyce is not observant, which a responsible parent is supposed to be.......

...Literature Citation When writing a research paper, literature citation is important for the following two reasons: (1) to avoid plagiarism (which is against the student code of conduct and is grounds for failing the course) and (2) to assign proper authority to a statement (this adds weight to your paper). You may use any style of literature citation as long as the proper authorities are cited in the text and full references are provided at the end of your paper. Here is an example of a style that is common in the biological literature. In-Text Citations Whether you are directly quoting or paraphrasing, your reference is cited in the text, before the end of the statement. The in-text citation consists of the author(s) last name(s) and the year of publication. For example, Drosophila magnaquinaria, fruit flies that are only found on skunk cabbage, prefer other hosts for feeding, egg-laying, and larval development than they do skunk cabbage (Courtney and Kibota, 1990). If there are more than two authors, then you may list the first author’s name followed by et al. For example, Mutational studies of Daphnia, Drosophila, Caenorhabditis, and Escherichia all provide estimates for the genomic deleterious mutation rate (Lynch et al., 1999). If you don’t know the name of the author (if the information comes from a website, for example), then you may list the website title or URL in place of the author’s name). Example Literature Cited Section The Literature Cited Section provides......

...from a believer in the effi ciency of bar codes, to a champion for the global GS1 standards. So much so, that Patties Foods has become a pioneer in the use of a new supply chain technology. Logistics is big business for Patties. The company behind the iconic Four’n Twenty, Herbert Adams, Patties, Great Australian Pies, Wedgwood and Nanna’s brand, Patties dispatches around 200 pallets of pastries daily from its eastern Victorian factory. At the other end of the supply chain, the company receives truckloads of fresh produce and ingredients every day from dozens of suppliers. Better information demanded by purchasing, planning and production Managing such large volumes of perishable goods means timely, accurate information about ingredients and orders is vital to the pastry manufacturer.

The time was right, according to Patties General Manager Purchasing and Supply, Joe Rettino. “The retailers had mandated the use of GS1 bar codes on shipping containers and we wanted to make sure we were compliant,” he said. “We could also relate to the experiences of other businesses who had been assisted by GS1 and could see potential benefi ts for us.” As part of GS1 Australia’s ‘Supply Chain Review’, the Professional Services team studied Patties’ operations, scoped a brief and prepared a business process map of the company’s existing......

Case Analysis

...Case Analysis #2: Patty – Anorexia Nervosa After reading the case example of Patty, complete the questions below in a readable, colored font. These questions are designed to help you apply the theoretical explanations for the disorder. We will be discussing these during class as well as expanding upon them so you might benefit from bringing a copy of your responses to class for the discussion. 1. Many people do not understand the full consequences of suffering from Anorexia Nervosa. What are two of the more serious medical consequences Patty experienced as a result of her Anorexia Nervosa? (1pt) As a result of her Anorexia Nervosa, Patty stopped menstruating for several months, known as amenorrhea. Additionally, Patty developed signs of cardiac problems, such as low pulse rate and loss of bone density. 2. What seemed to be a primary “trigger” for Patty’s Anorexia Nervosa? (1pt) A primary trigger for Patty’s eating disorder was distress that stemmed from her social life. She parted ways with a lifelong friend and found out her ex-boyfriend was sexually unfaithful to her. 3. What aspect of the biopsychosocial model (physical, cognitive, psychological/emotional, or sociocultural) does the trigger you identified in question 2 fit into, AND, explain why it might bring on the desire to severely restrict eating? (2pt) This trigger fits into the psychological/emotional aspect. The loss of a friend and a relationship can easily cause emotional stress leading to an...

The participant is one of the observer’s roommates. Patty has a rigorous schedule, juggling a complicated home-life, a part-time retail job and a full course load of classes. She is complimented for her hard work and integrity at work and receives above average grades in her college classes. Patty has also been dealing with her anxiety disorder on top of all of her daily duties. The observer asked Patty if she would like to be in a study in which a chosen behavior would be monitored in both a baseline phase and an intervention phase. Overall, the duration of the study would span over four weeks. Despite her hectic schedule, the participant is enthusiastic to be a part of the observer’s FBA. She immediately told the observers about behaviors she would like to and would be willing to change.

Demand analysis: To draw the demand analysis some assumptions have to be made. First, we supposed that the Hillybourne McDonald’s sells the same number of burger patties per week. Secondly, the percent of day’s sales for each open hour is proportional with the percent of burger patties sales for each open hour. For example the peak hourly demand for burger patties between 12:00 and 1:00 pm is 14,9% of total burger patties sales.

Agreeable

...Franzen is a short story about the main character, Patty, who is an all-star athlete with unsupportive parents. She is the oldest of her three siblings and the only one involved in sports. Her parents Ray and Joyce ignore Patty’s athletic talents, make jokes and play cruel pranks on Patty. Patty goes to a party with a friend, gets drunk, and ends up getting raped by Ethan Post, a son of a family friend. The next day after a basketball game, Patty tells her questioning coach about why she had bruises on her arms. Patty’s mother finds out about the incident and is more concerned how the rape will affect her relationship with Ethan’s family, rather than how Patty is feeling about the rape. Joyce discourages Patty from taking any action against Ethan and asking if an apology would be enough. When Ray finds out he is not supportive either of Patty. Ray also discourages Patty from taking any legal action. Patty ends up dropping the whole situations and her senior year goes on with her athletic life, breaking school records. “Agreeable” shows how an all-star athletic girl is neglected by her parents and is discouraged from excelling in more athletics.
