City johannesburg

By mongane serote

This way I salute you:

My hand pulses to my back trousers pocket

Or into my inner jacket pocket

For my pass, my life,

Jo’burg City.

My hand like a starved snake rears my pockets

For my thin ever lean wallet,

While my stomach groans a friendly smile to hunger,

Jo’burg City.

My stomach also devours coppers and papers

Don’t you know?

Jo’burg City, I salute you;

When I run out, or roar in a bus to you,

I leave behind me, my love,

My comic houses and people, my dongas and my

ever whirling dust,

My death

That’s so related to me as a wink to the eye.

Jo’burg City

I travel on your black and white and robotted roads

Through your thich iron breath that you inhale

At six in the morning and exhale from five noon.

Jo’burg City

That is the time when I come to you,

When your neon flowers flaunt their way through the

falling darkness

On your cement trees.

And as I go back, to my love,

My dongas, my dust, my people, my death,

Where death lurks in the dark like a blade in the flesh,

I can feel your roots, anchoring your might, my feebleness

In my flesh, in my mind, in my blood

And everything about you says it,

That, that is all you need of me.

Jo’burg City, Johannesburg,

Listen when I tell you,

There is no fun, nothing, in it,

When you leave the women and men with such

frozen expressions,

Expressions that have tears like furrows of soil erosion,

Jo’burg City, you are dry like death,

Jo’burg City, Johannesburg, Jo’burg City.

A warrior sings his praises

By Erinesti Rwandekyezi (Bahima Uganda)

I Who Am Praised thus held out in battle among foreigners

along with The Overthrower;

I Who Ravish Spear In Each Hand stood resplesendent in

my cotton cloth;

I Who Am Quick was drawn from afar by lust for the fight

and with me was The Repulser Of Warriors;

I Who Encircle The Foe, with Bitembe, brought back the

beats from Bihanga;

With Bwakwakwa, I fought at Kaanyabareega,

Where Bantura started a song that we might overcome

them.

Thus with my spear, I and Rwamujonjo conquered

Oruhinda;

The Banyoro were afraid on the battlefield of Kahenda;

The cocks of Karembe had already crowed;

I Who Am Nimble with The One Whom None Can

Dislodge felled them at Nyamizi.

At Nkanga, I seized my spear by its shaft-end;

At Kanyegyero, I The Binder Of Enemies too them by

surprise;

Thereafter was I never excluded from the counsels of

princes, nor was Rwangomani;

I Who Rescue With The Spear had seized him so that we

might fight together.

Hints on speaking poetry

  • Understand the poem or prose.
  • Paint a picture with your words.
  • Audibility is essential.
  • “It is not what you say, but the way you say it”.
  • Incorporate a variety in pitch and tone.
  • Incorporate changes in speed and rhythm.
  • Relax.
  • Articulate – achieved by the lips, tongue and teeth.
  • Incorporate accent – the variation of strength of volume within any word of more than one syllable, e.g. ea sy, dif ficult, im pos sible, the atre.
  • Incorporate emphasis – to make phrases move easily and with a swing and to give additional meaning and emotive dynamic.
  • Incorporate pauses – the length and amount of pauses used, govern the rate of the delivery – pauses ensure that the words are audible and intelligible and increase their emotional impact.
  • Incorporate inflections – rising and falling inflections.
  • Be careful of rising inflections at the end of each line.

How does learning influence behaviour
Tumpa Reply
our choice of study molds us and encourages us to practice what we learn. social structure also changes behavior based on the environment and peers. how we learn can be experimental as not everyone lesrns the same. some are more of a hands-on absorber, whereas others may learn better from listening
A confidence from personal knowledge. Not from having been taugbt. knowledge that you learned what was taught.

what is development
Momna Reply
In what Context are you referring to
Hassan
the progression/degression/growth of something. it is interpreted most commonly in psychology as how something is created or formed. ex: When did you develop an interest in psychology?
when refering to physical, cognitive, and social development, these types of development are determined by many circumstances. such as demographics, biology, and personality/character
it is the apprehensions fluency based by the process of configurations to a design based on product/witness series noticeboards to note the stats on order to retail agreements on stated series order.

technically Freud would be the father of psychology because he discovered the id ego and super ego
Bryce
Its kind of a loaded question. There are many early greats in psychology each having their own theories and views. I think it is more of a collective of ideals that make up our current view and understanding of psychology.

what do you think psychology courses are often requirments of different programs to study?
Miah Reply
i was going to say i didn't understand your question. but as I was about to question you about it, I realized what you were trying to say. anyways, psychology majors obviously have the most psychology courses. however, other programs such as Social Work, and Addictions Counseling, or just Counseling
Gaunt
all have a very heavy load of psychology based courses as the actual positions require a strong psychology background and general knowledge of different fields of psychology.
Gaunt
Also, a lot of business majors require atleast one psychology course. So they can know how to read people when making a sale.
Jessi
also fields like health care, education, criminal justice, law, human resources, and marketing all have some type of psychological background thats needed or at the least beneficial to being successful in the profession.
Gaunt
Can anyone explain me Clearly, how to get psychologist licence
Zainab
You pick a college and visit the admissions building. Then you ask to speak to an advisor. Ask them what all you need to do at their college or University. Most require a specific set of classes, 4 years full time or 6 years part time. Then take a state test.
Jessi
any field of work required psychology, because psychology is a sources of knowledge

Bryce
bored that is when you start to open up your book and you see a chapter for behavioral psychology and you just get ingross into that chapter that you didn't realize that the class was over. you now like psychology because psychology is used everywhere
Bryce
psychology pertains to just about everything if not all.
jeddy
The root ology    denotes scientific study of, and psychology    refers to the scientific study of the mind. Since science studies only observable phenomena and the mind is not directly observable, we expand this definition to the scientific study of mind and behavior.
