Women's Health

Last week we had a very informative session on breast examination, Pap smears and pelvic floor exercises. (Sorry Bingbing, but I think this is very important. You can learn about it and tell Echo).

WOMEN'S
HEALTH IS
OUR RIGHT and OUR
RESPONSIBILITY

YOUR body IS THE container of your MIND & SPIRIT.
DO NOT
NEGLECT IT!

It wasn't easy to understand everything because of all the new medical words. Have a look at the leaflets the nurse gave us and visit these web sites:Breast





It was a coincidence that on the same evening we heard the news about Kylie Minogue's breast cancer.

Read the following articles, from three different sources:
Kylie has breast cancer (Sky Showbixz)
Kylie Battling Cancer (Rolling Stones)
Superstar Kylie Minogue diagnosed with Breast Cancer (Teen Music, About)
When you finish reading all three versions of the same story, write in your blog about the differences and similarities between the three. Answer these questions to help you organise your thoughts:
1. Do they present the same content, the same information?
2. Do they use photos in an honest way? Or do they manipulate them to affect our feelings?
3. What is around the article? Are they trying to sell something? Are they adding useful information?
4. Do they give serious information or just anecdotes about the singer?
5. Which article is more believable and why?
6. Do you think it's ok to talk about a famous person's medical problems? Why?

sorry, Rosa, I didn't write anything about the three articles in my blog, because I think it is too hard to write. I've read them , but I didn't have any ideas.Sorry.
