Growing up in a community where the majority of the people are a certain race—one not of your own—can be very difficult. In some scenarios, being a different race from the community isn't really something pointed out, however in others, people sometimes make it known that your background is not the same as theirs. In the documentary Somewhere Between (Goldstein Knowlton, 2011), a film about four different girls and how their lives have been after being adopted in the U.S. because of China’s “One Child Policy”, being identified solely by your race in a neighborhood is pretty common. The documentary highlights many of the ways that race was the first, if not the only, thing some people saw when looking at an Asian girl in a White community.

China is expected to finally end the first phase of th gigantic South-North Water Transfer project. This project was created because the south area of China has a lot of water, and the north does not. This project will have a cost of over than 65 billion of dollars, without including the ecological and social impacts. It will transfer 45 billion cubic meters of water per years, taking the water from the Yangtze River in southern China to the Yellow River Bassin in arid nothern China.

When students make a transfer in their lives from adolescence to adulthood, it tends to be a very stressful part of their lives. They start to learn about themselves, are given more freedom than they know what to do with, and are also given a lot more responsibilities with that freedom. These can all be stressful events.

The article I read was about children with special needs participating in hippotherapy. Hippotherapy is when people use horses/ horse riding as their therapy. Horseback riding as rehabilitation is something that has been recognized since 1875 (Granados, Agís 2011). The treatment relies on the horse’s movement and the patient’s reaction to the movement. The reason that this method of physical therapy is known for being affective is because a horse’s walk closely resembles a human walking, so the rider goes though the same motions of walking, without using their legs. Hippotherapy has been used to treat children who have a wide range of disabilities, including autism, cerebral palsy, communication disorders, cerebrovascular accident stroke, developmental delay, Down syndrome, language disabilities, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries (Granados, Agís 2011).
