Women’s Health Research

Both women and men share similar health challenges, but the differences are such that the health of women deserves particular attention. While there are many commonalities in the health challenges facing women around the world, there are also differences due to various conditions in which they live. I think it is very important for women to have access to knowledge related to their own health, not only about the reproductive system because they are going to a mother and wife, but about all aspects of her body. Therefore this will be amazing research to scrutiny the women’s health in all aspects, and especially seeing the different perspectives towards the women’s health system in Cambodia. My aim is to 1, Determine the current health services for women in the rural areas in Cambodia and what they are lacking. These include: (a), the area of they are living; (b), the income/poverty around their area. 2, Dictate the current women and girls health in Cambodia; major health concern, establish the needs for women and girls based on their service which also could link to their knowledge of their own health.

 

Heterogeneous vs Homogeneous mixtures

  • What is the different between Heterogeneous and Homogeneous mixtures?
  • Three phrase or states of matter gas, liquid and solid.

Homogeneous – a mixture that is dissolvable in each other

Heterogeneous – a mixture that is separated from each other

 

  • Homogeneous mixtures examples
    • Air
    • Sugar water
    • Rainwater
    • Vodka
    • Vinegar
    • Dishwashing detergent
    • Steel
  • Heterogeneous mixture examples
    • Cereal in milk
    • Vegetable soup
    • Pizza
    • Blood
    • Gravel
    • Salad dressing
    • Oil with water
    • Mixed nuts
    • A bowl of colored candles
    • Soil
    • Ice in Soda
  • Heterogeneous mixtures are more common than a homogeneous mixture

 

Healthcare in Cambodia – One2One

On August, 31st, 2018, our Healthcare exploration visited MoPoTsyo to gain insights into healthcare and healthcare perspective in Cambodia. MoPoTsyo—a shorter term for Patient Information Centre—is an NGO that works with patients with chronic diseases, especially diabetes. We were there to talk to Dr. Maurit. He was a really fun man to talk to. He took us through mini biology lessons and explain different diseases and condition. From his talk, we learned that diabetes is not a disease, rather it a condition where the person is unable to produce insulin (type I), or unable to use their insulin effectively (type II). You might be wondering what is insulin is, well, it’s just a fancy name for a hormone that helps your body to regulate its sugar level. Back to where I trailed off, not only did we talk about Cambodia, we also discuss the sugar credit (in Thailand) where the tax paid by food production company is proportional to the sugar content of their product and various food scandal. Then, we talked about the improvement(s) Cambodian public hospitals can make, and learned about MoPoTsyo’s work. What they do is really cool, they offer blood testing service and education program. They also a longer training program, where people were taught about diabetes, and later take a test to ensure that they are qualified to teach their peers and raise awareness of diabetes.

Engineering Biography

Hedy Lamarr

Born: November 9, 1914

Died: January 19, 2000 (age 85)

Citizenship: Austria (1914-1953), United States (1953-2000)

Occupation: Actress, Inventor

Hedy Lamarr was born on November 9, 1914. She was an Austrian-born American film actress and inventor. Lamarr won a beauty contest in Vienna at the age of 12. As a child, she showed an interest in acting and was fascinated by theatre and film. She became a film star from the late 1930s to the 1950s. Her best-known films are Algiers, Boom Town, I Take This Woman, Comrade X, Come Live With Me, H.M. Pulham, Esq, and Samson and Delilah.

At the age of 18, Lamarr married Mandl. Her marriage eventually became unmanageable, and she decided to separate herself from her husband. She described her husband as an extremely controlling husband who strongly objected to her acting career. She even claimed she was kept a virtual prisoner in their castle home.  After leaving Mandl, she met Louis B. Mayer, head of MGM. He brought her to Hollywood in 1938 and began promoting her as the “World’s most beautiful woman” and she gets famous ever since.

During the World war II, Lamarr wanted to join the National Inventors Council, but the NIC member told that she could better help the war effort by using celebrity to sell war bonds. Because of her participation, there were many war bonds purchases during that time. Throughout her entire time in the film industry, Lamarr enjoyed her biggest success playing Delilah the most. The film was the highest-grossing film of 1949 and also won two Oscars.

Besides working in the filming industry, Lamarr also worked in her spare time on various hobbies and inventions. She improved traffic stoplight and a tablet that would dissolve in water to create a carbonated drink. The beverage was unsuccessful but later on, in 1997, Lamarr received the Electronic Frontier Foundation Pioneer Award and the Bulbie Gnass Spirit of Achievement Bronze Award, given to an individual whose creative lifetime achievements in the arts, science, business, or invention fields have significantly contributed to society.

Lamarr died in Florida, on January 19, 2000, of heart disease, aged 85. She was given an honorary grave in Vienna’s Central Cemetery in 2014. Despite the fact that Lamarr was an actress, she was also the first woman to receive the invention Convention’s BULBIE Gnass Spirit of Achievement Award, known as the “Oscars of inventing.” This amazing history should be spread and hear by everyone because Lamarr, an actress, and woman had broken the world stereotype by inventing the “secret communication system” that we are now using every day.

Last but not least, the three characteristics that help Lamarr reached her goals must be persistence, patience, and positivity. Lamarr was not just a pretty actress, in addition, this Lamarr seems to play an important role during and after the World War II broke. She wanted to solve the problem of communication at that time, but her first attempt wasn’t a success due to sociocultural discrimination. I understand that sometimes there are people that are going to say “no” to what we want and need but successful people do not give up, so did Lamarr.

Bonjech Ponler

“Bonjech Ponler” is a title of a 4 minutes songs that had created by the Human Agency Company collaborating with the Liger students and Phare Ponleu Selpak. It was my pleasure to be selected as the fellow in a film production in a purpose of introducing Cambodia culture to the whole world. There were eight students selected for this two weeks project which required everyone to travel down to Battambang province to meet all of the crew and actors there. Human Agency is a company who “produce content-powered platforms for the most recognized brand names on the planet.” They’ve done many videos, their crews are from all over the world and their requirement is to finish the film in just two weeks. It was fun working with them; we did so many activities such as planning idea, designing scenes, producing music, writing song, filmmaking and interview many people.

Go Film for MoneyTree

MoneyTree is a curriculum brought by a Singapore Company. They established to provide a solution to address the financial literacy gap. Liger is very lucky to bring this curriculum into school for the Junior. “Money tree taught me how to save and manage my money.” – Dara. Meanwhile, Samady, Samnang, and I are having such a great opportunity to help the company with their promotion video which will use to target Cambodian parents. Before the end of January, our team will visit three different schools in Phnom Penh (The Westline School, Apple Tree International School, and Cambodian Children’s Fund organization), to shoot several videos as well as to meet with the curriculum trainer from the Company. This might sound simple, but we have their future with us.

Khmer Audio : Marine Ecosystem

Carols are invertebrate, living in a compact of colonies of many polyps. It comes in many different shapes and color. Corals are easy to find in shallow water due to a mutualistic relationship with algae. In one year, it’s can grow up to 3 centimeters or 5 centimeters only. Sadly, there are several illegal cases happen in Cambodia’s Ocean which led all aquatic animals and plants into danger. Lately, our students had worked as an audio scribe to educate people about marine life. We hope people will be educated about marine ecosystem and willing to preserve our beautiful corals as well as the other biodiversity.

Here is the sample of the scribe in Khmer:

Math Formulars

When it’s come to a point that WE all need to know these math formulas. It is not required to be memorized but it better to get a sense of how to calculate them. 

Static equilibrium Problem

Static equilibrium: A 7 kg sign is hung up with two cables, with each cable at a 40-degree angle. What is the force in the cables?

Once again, we are going to solve this problem by balancing the forces
in the y-direction. What can we figure out right away? The force of gravity on
the sign in the downwards direction.
Fg = m ∗ g
Fg = 7kg ∗ 10m/s2 = 70N

The forces acting upward on the sign have to cancel out this 70N downward
force. These upward forces are the y components of each of the diagonal forces.
Because we know the two diagonal forces are equal (the angles are the same),
we know that they split the weight equally. Therefore, the y component of
each must be 35 (35 up + 35 up balances 70 down ). Then, once again, we do
sohcahtoa. The y component is the side opposite to the angle:

sin40 = 35/F
Where F is the diagonal force we are looking for.
F = 35/sin40 = 54.45N
