Epistemology is the philosophical study of the origin, nature and limits of knowledge. The word epistemology is derived from the Greek words episteme which means knowledge and the word logos which means reason. The following study tries to elaborate and give further insight on the primary sources of knowledge that exist today. Epistemology is both normative and descriptive. Descriptive epistemology refers to assertions that are made without a person undertaking any evaluations into the matter. Descriptive claims try to explain an understanding of a matter without basing the evidence to established standards. One potential illustration of the descriptive aspects of epistemology is that knowledge existed before man came into being. For example, animals have knowledge about weather patterns which describes their migratory tendencies during certain intervals. The above illustration is an example of knowledge that was in existence long before man mastered the trends and patterns of weather. Normative epistemology refers to assertions that are made after some degree of analysis or investigation that has been carried out relative to existing standards and or principles. To illustrate knowledge is not static but rather is ever evolving owing to the fact that the earliest men relied solely on rain fed agriculture…
The allegory of the cave is one of the most prominent works of Plato. It is a theory created by Plato asserting that knowledge which emanates from senses is not factual and that real knowledge can only be acquired through philosophical reasoning. Even though the theory is intriguing to read it has a deeper meaning. Plato uses a lot to symbolism to clearly explain his theory. Plato uses the cave to symbolize the school of thought that believes that knowledge comes from empirical knowledge such as the things we see and hear (Peterson 275). The caves indicate that people who depend on empirical knowledge are trapped in a “cave” of misunderstanding.
Introduction J.K Rowling uses the motif of an eleven-year-old boy and his life experience to bring to life several themes relatable to the real world. Harry is an orphan who has to live with his relatives, and it is apparent from the onset that he is not welcome. He is forced to live in a cupboard beneath a staircase and has to do so many duties that would not normally be assigned to a ten-year-old boy. Despite all these circumstances, Harry soon discovers that he is a significant figure, as he secures an admission to the Hogwarts School of wizardry and sorcery.

Harry and his friends, Ron and Hermione, work together to ensure the stone is safe and, in the end, Voldermont is unable to access it.
The ascent of intermediary powers as real military and political on-screen characters in Middle East and South-East Asia lately obviously requests insightful consideration, not least since the marvel has turned out to be both close endemic and furthermore hints at covering into the European security circle, owing to the fact that in Eastern Ukraine military has been there since 2014 and suspected Russian-drove digital assaults on Estonia and Lithuania between 2008 to 2015. The Middle East establishes the clear current cauldron of intermediary strife. In Syria, the common war which has unfurled since 2011 has turned out to be set apart as much by how much Qatar, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia store and bolster equipped renegade groups inside Syria, as by the job of Russia and Iran in supporting and sponsorship the Assad routine in Damascus with the two arms and outfitted volunteers of their own.

Spinal Cord stimulation is a method to induce a contraction in the targeted muscle by the application of electrical impulses superficially, on the skin of the person under treatment. All methods of spinal cord stimulation are based on electric devices that are implanted or placed external to the body of the patient. Spinal cord stimulation makes the spinal nerves active and responsive to the environment. This is achieved by sending a controlled and timed electric current from a device into the electrodes which are then taken to the muscle in the predetermined area resulting in a contraction of the targeted muscle. The success of electrical stimulation technology requires that the embedded motor neurons of the individual be intact for an effect to be possible in the muscle being stimulated (Allen & Goodman, 2014). There are many variations of the electrical stimulation that are applicable in different situations. Some of these are the Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES), Russian ES, Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation (TENS) and Functional ES (FES).
Menge. “Interdisciplinary Arts School.” 2018, pp. 1-3. We began the academic year with a term paper that required the analysis of an iconic image where I focused on racial injustice illustrated in Colin Kaepernick national anthem protest. I also did an interview video assignment with Joe, my classmate, where we discussed and analyzed the NBA playoffs of 2018. In the third assignment, we were required to create a video on public service announcement. I chose to focus on three different methods of saving money on movie tickets. I collaborated with my classmates to complete the summer 2018 assignment where we researched on the Japanese pop culture. I studied how video games have revolutionized their culture. In winter 2019, I pursued a photography class where I completed a 3 photo series illustrating how past tweets from celebrities were scrutinized by the media. In another assignment, I used pictures to portray the recovery process of sexual abuse victims. We completed the photography class by making a film where I created a self-identity film on myself. The course was highly significant to me as I was able to explore my creative mature in different assignments on the creation of the self-identity film.
We have selected mental health in schools as the social issue that we will discuss. Today, many school-going children are struggling to manage with their mental health amidst the increasing anxiety, depression, self-harm, and despair among them. For instance, Anderson and Cardoza indicate that up to on in five children in the United States show signs and symptoms of mental health disorder annually (par. 1). Unfortunately, about 80 percent of the children who need mental health services do not receive the services (Anderson and Cardoza par. 1). Therefore, mental health in schools is an important social issue that should be addressed.
