Jane Tompkins asserts the view that perspective makes more sense when different people offer their account of the same story as opposed to when the same people are consulted to give their account of different stories all the time (Tompkins). She posits that issues arise when all accounts of different events are normally determined by the same frame of reference of the observer. She mentions this as the reason why people never know what really happens in history. Tompkins seeks to appeal to the ethos of her audience by the way she employs tactics like Kairos and exigence.

Introduction Psychological well-being refers to an individual’s engagement with existential challenges of life. In the last several decades, there has been a shift to the positive aspects of mental well-being. The standards that people used to measure well-being had not been theorized. Carol Ryff developed a model of psychological well-being that is centered on six dimensions. The six core dimensions of psychological well-being are self acceptance, personal growth, and purpose in life, environmental mastery, autonomy, and positive relationships (Ryff 100). Environmental mastery refers to how an individual manages their life situations. Purpose in life focuses on the extent by which an individual feels their life has meaning (Kállay and Rus 16). Positive relationships measures the depth of connections they had in ties with significant others. Autonomy measures if a person believes they are living in accordance with their own personal convictions. Self acceptance focuses on the knowledge and acceptance of themselves, including their limitations.
China’s economy went through massive transformations in the second half of the 19th century and start of the 20th century. At the beginning of the 19 century, China’s economy was the largest in the world. It was more than twice that of India, which was the second largest economy in the world.

By 1870, the country’s GDP had fallen to 60% of the global average. The country went through further recession and by 1980, the country’s GDP was equivalent to 24% of the world’s average. As China’s economy receded during the second part of the 19th century and early 20th century, the economy of other Western countries grew after the Industrial Revolution.

Seasonal changes could adversely affect the health of patients who have been diagnosed with pollen allergy. This is so because, pollen allergies are normally spread by wind and season changes tend to affect the rate as well as the intensity with which the wind does travel. There are times when the weather is windy and during this period, the spreading of the pollen grains causing the allergies is normally at a high rate compared to when it is less windy. In the article, “Never-ending Allergies? Blame multiple Pollen Seasons,” the author discusses the combined impact of tree and grass pollen on public health (Eva, 2019). The article summarizes the insight of Dr. Donald Stark, who is an allergist at the University of British Columbia. Stark claimed that people could be allergic to both tree and grass pollen that could make allergies to last the entire summer.
The meaning of life has attracted the attention of many philosophers, poets, writers, and other representatives of the humanities. For a long time, the problem of human immortality did not go beyond the framework of religious discourse. Today, the opposition of infinity and limitation is present in both minds of scientists and artists. The advancement of science and technology nowadays leads to the question of humanity. Therefore, immortality is an essential part of the meaning of life because the concept influences the development of scientific paradigms and contributes to new worldview trends in culture, philosophy, and medicine.
As a highly persistent and goal-oriented but at the same time, modest student, I need the scholarship to further my education and get an opportunity to pursue my chosen career. I am a responsible and confident person because I always complete all the tasks that are assigned to me and value responsibility and purposefulness in others. I understand that my education is not only the next stage in my life that I should successfully complete but the foundation for my future career and expertise in the field. I believe that I have a potential for becoming a successful professional in the future because I am accustomed to learning significant loads of new information and expressing proactiveness, which, to my mind, is an essential feature of a successful student. Moreover, I consider myself to be a good problem-solver and decision-maker, but I lack the practical experience to test associated abilities and skills. The scholarship will help me enhance my knowledge and skills and support my personal and professional development. In turn, I believe that if I reach my full potential with the help of scholarship, I will show high academic performance, which will positively affect the reputation of our college.
