John (surprised): Nothing! I just asked if you want to go out !

Jill : Yes, but it’s the way you said it!

And then an argument starts! What happened to going out?

Questions:

1.1 Do you think Jill was too sensitive? Why?

1.2 Can you think of other occasions when this has happened, that a person has been distrustful for no apparent reason. Can you suggest why?

Scenario 2

Remember : Working with stereotypes makes us blind to the real value of people.

We work with stereotypes so much that we learn to accept them. e.g. Jaco and Michael are talking to each other.

Jaco: I am NOT asking her to the dance! Her name is Elspeth! She wears glasses! She doesn’t drink.

Michael: Well, what about Elna, then?

Jaco: Oh no! She works in a butchery! She drives a 1993 Volkswagen! She is a religious freak! She comes from Gauteng!

Questions:

2.1 Will Jaco find any girl to take to the dance? Explain.

2.2 What is Jaco’s real problem?

2.3 How can he solve it?

Scenario 3:

Remember: What you see is what you will be! You can choose to see things in a positive way or a negative way. (However, can negative comments teach us something!)

Sometimes we need to accept that we have different perceptions of the same thing. (“. . . but that is not what I saw!”)

Lisa: Their house is so poorly furnished. They do not even have a pool! And, honestly, did you see the children, running all over the place, thin and noisy. And their clothes are so unfashionable.

Jane: Well, I don’t know. The children seem happy to me. I do not mind that they do not have much furniture. At least we were asked to sit down and to enjoy cold drinks and biscuits, although they obviously cannot afford it. I think it is a happy home and that there is a lot of love in the house.

Question:

3.1 Why do you think Lisa was so critical and Jane was so appreciative?

Scenario 4

Remember: Giving clear instructions is very important. Keep them unambiguous.Do not blame someone if you are at fault!

Sometimes interpretations vary and instructions are unclear.

Boniswa: Take the pill in the middle drawer and give it to Mrs Heath tonight.

Nolwe: All right!

The next morning, Mrs Heath is found in bed – VERY sick!

Boniswa: Nolwe, did you give her the pill!

Nolwe: Yes, I did. I opened the middle drawer which has all the red pills in it and gave her one.

Boniswa: Oh no! Not THAT drawer. I said the middle drawer!

Nolwe: But there are THREE middle drawers in the desk! One on each side vertically and one in the middle horizontally!

Questions:

4.1 Who is to blame here?

Scenario 5

Remember: Bullies are actually cowards who are surrounded by admirers! You must decide whether you are guilty too of encouraging a bully! Is there anything else that you can do instead of this?

Sometimes things go wrong and the reaction is, “But I didn’t know!” which is no excuse, even in a court of law.

Joseph (in front of a group of girls): Sollie is a skollie! Sollie is a skollie! Look at his thin pants and short hair! He’s got fleas!

Sollie (shyly): Stop this, please, Joseph!

Joseph: Ag, listen to him whining! He’s such a baby – Come on – show us your HUGE muscles then (He laughs). Come on, let’s fight, champ (He pushes him onto the ground).

please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.

industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
