"Promise Land"

"Where am I?"

"Is this the real world?"

A lot of things are on my mind. I may be young and innocent, but not ignorant. I can clearly see what's present.

I can only imagine life when the world was first created, a beautiful scene yet to be exploited.A dash of green and blue then add the bright yellow sunshine that lights up the day. God gave us a world full of promise. He wanted us to use it, take care of it and make sure that there is plenty for everybody.

The water is not blue as it was.

The air we breath is not healthy anymore.

The forest that used to be rich and full, nowhere to be seen.

Dead
Denuded
Destroyed

"What happened to the promised land?"

"How dare we ruin it!"

"Look at it people! look at it!"

"If the world could only speak, it would tell us how much it hurts."

"All of us can do something but not everyone is willing to do it."

"Now, I can't imagine what the future holds."

Living
Hoping
Praying

The chances are getting thinner everytime. Time is running out. We better do it now or pay the price later.

Let's rebuild this world and plant new life for a new day.

"The Unpardonable Crime"

Only one living creature seemed to take any notice of his existence: this was an old St. Bernard, who used to come and lay his big head with its mournful eyes on Christophe's knees when Christophe was sitting on the seat in front of the house. They would look long at each other. Christophe would not drive him away Unlike the sick Goethe, the dog's eyes had no uneasiness for him Unlike him, he had no desire to cry: "Go away! . . . Thou goblin thou shalt not catch me, whatever thou doest!"
He asked nothing better than to be engrossed by the dog's…...

To Work or Not to Work

...To work or not to work – That is the question: Whether ‘Tis politer in the mind to tolerate the insults And listen to the complaints of annoying customers, Or to resign from my job entirely And by quitting, rest or study for school. To work, to quit— No more—and by showing up to work I face The same old same old preparations for customers That each day holds.—‘Tis a situation I do not wish to face. To work, to quit— To quit, perhaps to rest. Ay, there’s the problem, For in quitting what events may come about When we have no money to have fun Must make us all think. That’s the thought That makes disaster of an invite to a Girls Night Out. For who really wants to work a long 8 hour shift, Deal with the annoyance of refolding clothes, the crabby managers, The disappointment of an empty break room, the cheapness of supplies, The overly dramatic co-worker, and the grimacing looks That the customers send my way when looking at their totals, When they too, may work And go through the same things I have to? Who would want this, To walk in the same exact steps every day, But the dread of being broke, The thought of spending weekends alone or The realization of the fact that we don’t have a life, Wishing that we did have some sort of job for cash Instead of seeking those wasted days of being lazy? Thus the chance of missing out on a fun night does make us want to work, And thus happiness of being with friends Is tainted by thoughts of how I cannot afford...

Just-in-Time Compilation Technique

...Just-In-Time Compilation Technique 1. Introduction Just-in-time (JIT) compilation is an effective technique for boosting the speed of program interpreters. The idea of JIT compilation is to dynamically translate input programs into native machine code, and then execute only native code. It is an old invention which dates back to 1960. The earliest published JIT compiler is generally attributed to work on LISP (McCarthy, J. 1960); in his seminal paper Recursive functions of symbolic expressions and their computation by machine, Part I, he mentions functions that are translated during runtime, thereby sparing the need to save the compiler output to punch cards. After that Smalltalk pioneered new aspects of JIT compilations. For example, translation to machine code was done on demand, and the result was cached for later use. However, the concept is still relevant today as JIT compilation is considered vital for competitive interpreter-based implementations of modern languages, like Java, .NET, C# and ML etc. JIT compilation is interesting because of the conflicting goals of producing quick code versus quickly producing code. In very simple means JIT compilation is a process of reverse-engineering the semantics of a program, and re-engineering the result back into binary code. The code is split up into blocks, some higher-level meaning is extracted from the current block of code, and native code is generated. It is used to improve the time and space efficiency......

Compilation Reaction on Inconvenient Truth

...solving this problem, because we cannot make this possible if people won’t go with you. But many others still ignored this problem even though this crisis is very obvious in our nature. I hope they can watch this film and realize what is to be realized. Everything’s not yet too late. We can still have the chance to solve this climate crisis such as planting more trees, use electricity less, use water less, use cars less, and especially supporting any environment solutions. Because of this movie, I now learned what is global warming very clearly and made me alert on this problem because I only know very little about this and I thought it is just not that troublesome in our lives. I hope this movie will be widely watched and embrace people to work up on this climate crisis. Lastly, all I can say is “Spread the word”. The documentary was about global warming and on how can we protect our mother earth for future generations. Al Gore shows pictures of the earth and also shows us up-to-date data and statistics, which is also compared by figures in our prior years to show us the degree of damage we have done tour planet earth. The documentary also has elaborate cartoons and diagrams so that people of all intellectual capabilities can understand and relate to the topics under discussion. Added to that, he shows also pictures of the destruction of earth just like comparative photographs from footage of collapsing ice shelves, data on the record numbers of storms, disappearing......

To Work Or Not To Work Page 1 TO WORK OR NOT TO WORK: THE IMPACT OF WORK ON STUDENTS’ COLLEGE EXPERIENCE ABSTRACT Existing research on student employment focuses on the impact of work on persistence and degree attainment. This study, however, pays special attention to how work affects students' college experience. Blending quantitative and qualitative methods, the study examines the difference between working and nonworking students in their academic and social experience on campus, students’ perceptions of work, and the impact of work on their college life. The results indicate no significant difference between working and nonworking students in their academic and social experience, though working students' GPAs are lower than that of the nonworking. Constantly searching for meaningful work as well as meaning in their work, most working......

...Anyone looking to work in the restaurant business shouldn’t be expecting to just walk in and know exactly what they are doing. I run food, which sounds easy at first, but after awhile it becomes an extreme pain in the butt. Something as simple as giving food to a customer can become utterly annoying. I learned many things through working in restaurant. “It’s dog eat dog world”. This sentence reminds me how hard to keep restaurant business. One of the biggest misconception about the restaurant business is that people seem to think it’s easy -going. I can say one thing for sure, a popular restaurant will never be an easy-going restaurant, but working at a popular restaurant is the only way to make any sort of money. making money in a restaurant can often become competitive. For the servers and food runners, it’s all about making money, so it is inevitable that some workers are going to butt heads. Sometimes, I find myself hustling over to a table of people before another one of my workers can get there, it’s almost laughable but that’s just the way it works. Some might even go as far to say that the business is “dog eat dog” amongst the workers. It really is simple, whoever waits on the most tables is going to make the most money. Don’t get me wrong though, a server could wait on the most tables all night, but if their service isn’t good the amount of money they makes will be minimized....

She was also the author of the poetry collection, Poems, first published in 1940 (and revised in 1950). The collection contained the best of her early work as well as unpublished poems written between 1934-1938. Her last poem, Old Maid Walking on a City Street can also be found in the collection.

Personal life On March 11, 1945, her husband Celedonio and her son Ruben were attacked by a Japanese patrol in Alitagtag, Batangas. Though her husband died, Ruben was able to survive, yet his trauma had been so severe that he could not bring himself to recount the attack. This event left Manalang-Gloria a young widow with three children to support, which forced her to abandon writing and enter the abaca business, which she successfully......

Work

...The Organization of Work The Nature and Organization of Work With the onset of the Industrial Revolution and the emergence of the practice of the division of labor and the emphasis on specialization, factories and company-owned industries had to employ hundreds and thousands of workers whom the owner or the manager does not know personally. The relationship between the entrepreneur (capital) and the workers (labor) is remote and impersonal, so lacking the “human touch”. Sociologist are intensely interested in the study of the interactive and interrelation between the employer and the employee and between an employee as he relates with other employees. Since, the worker is not a mere ”machine” but a human being, he has to satisfy his social needs. Workers do not confine their lives only to their place of work. They have families. And as communities were formed, large industries eventually surfaced. Status, roles and social mobility, as well as social organizations and social interrelationships, are important aspects of community life. This community situation, both inside and outside the factory, has given rise to an important development in sociology which many refer to as Industrial Sociology (Espiritu, 1979). This is also known as the organization of work. It is associated with organizational problems such as workers’ morale, productivity, absenteeism, and turn-over rates. However, its main concern is not how management can solve organizational problems. As discipline,......

...resident of Manila. Gloria found out that thirty of the applicants did not meet the requirements, so their applications were set aside. Still, Gloria need to eliminate ten more. She was in a quandary and she could not make up her mind on who would be eliminated. As Gloria was shuffling the resumes, she noticed one with a name similar to her ex-boyfriend’s. She said to herself “I don’t want to work with someone who has this name,” and she took out the resume and set is aside. She has nine more names to go. Next, she noticed that five applicants graduated from the university where her boyfriend is an alumnus. She set aside the five resumes. With the last four she agonized in trying to find a reason for weeding them out. Neverthless, she found the answer. Four of the applicants were graduates of college located in the provinces. In no time, her list of ten names is complete. Questions: (1) Is there anything wrong with the manner the shortlist was prepared by Gloria? - Gloria choose applicants unfairly, she quickly eliminates those applicants she didn’t want to work with. - They might have the best applicant if Miss Gloria chooses applicants not involving her personal interest. - The ten applicants that were chosen might not fit with the job or they might have attitude problem and worst those eliminated applicants are more capable and deserving in the vacant position. (2) What do you suggest regarding the preparation of the shortlist? Miss Gloria......

Nursery Rhymes Compilation (Unedited)

...Middle Ages there are records of short children's rhyming songs, often as marginalia.[6] From the mid-16th century they begin to be recorded in English plays.[7] Most nursery rhymes were not written down until the 18th century, when the publishing of children's books began to move from polemic and education towards entertainment, but there is evidence for many rhymes existing before this, including "To market, to market" and "Cock a doodle doo", which date from at least the late 16th century.[8] The first English collections, Tommy Thumb's Song Book and a sequel, Tommy Thumb's Pretty Song Book, are both thought to have been published before 1744, with such songs becoming known as 'Tommy Thumb's songs'.[9] The publication of John Newbery's compilation of English rhymes, Mother Goose's Melody, or, Sonnets for the Cradle(London, c. 1765), is the first record we have of many classic rhymes, still in use today.[10][11] These rhymes seem to have come from a variety of sources, including traditionalriddles, proverbs, ballads, lines of Mummers' plays, drinking songs, historical events, and, it has been suggested, ancient pagan rituals.[1] About half of the currently recognised "traditional" English rhymes were known by the mid-18th century.[12] 19th century[edit] In the early 19th century printed collections of rhymes began to spread to other countries, including Robert Chambers's Popular Rhymes of Scotland (1826) and in the United States, Mother Goose's Melodies (1833).[1] From......

Martial Law Article Compilation

...martial law regime that Ferdinand Marcos inaugurated in September 1972 might have been the most benign. To say that, of course, would not comfort those who were brutalized and victimized by martial law. Nor would it blunt the criminal impunity that was unleashed in its name. But, it might allow us to make sense of the contradictions that hounded the Marcos dictatorship from the start, and eventually led to its collapse. Apart from being a sharp lawyer, Marcos was a keen student of history, politics and global affairs. He prided himself in being not only an astute politician but also, in some sense, an intellectual who understood the power of ideas in human affairs. For this reason, he managed to attract some of the country’s best minds to work with him: Onofre D. Corpuz, Cesar Virata, Gerardo Sicat, Alejandro Melchor, Jaime Laya, Arturo Tanco, to name a few. Many of them were professors I knew at the University of the Philippines—bright, honest, idealistic and patriotic. I always wondered how they felt being in the same government as the cabal of thieves, killers and scoundrels that surrounded Marcos and Imelda during that ignominious period of our nation’s past. Many of these individuals joined Marcos’ “New Society” because they genuinely thought it was time to replace the dysfunctional political order that for too long had hobbled the country’s progress. The premodern oligarchy that controlled government, they argued, had kept the country’s economy backward, and......

Compilation of Financial Statements

...Compilation of Financial Statements 2011 AR Section 80 Compilation of Financial Statements Issue date, unless otherwise indicated: December 2009 See section 9080 for interpretations of this section. Source: SSARS No. 19 .01 This section establishes standards and provides guidance on compilations of financial statements. The accountant is required to comply with the provisions of this section whenever he or she is engaged to report on compiled financial statements or submits financial statements to a client or to third parties. Establishing an Understanding .02 The accountant should establish an understanding with management regarding the services to be performed for compilation engagements1 and should document the understanding through a written communication with management. Such an understanding reduces the risks that either the accountant or management may misinterpret the needs or expectations of the other party. For example, it reduces the risk that management may inappropriately rely on the accountant to protect the entity against certain risks or to perform certain functions that are management's responsibility. The accountant should ensure that the understanding includes the objectives of the engagement, management's responsibilities, the accountant's responsibilities, and the limitations of the engagement. In some cases, the accountant may establish such understanding with those charged with governance. .03 An understanding with management......

Compilation Assessment

...time function to accomplish the tasks in the exact timing” (Said, 2014). It is important to acquire effective time management skills to use time efficiently. This same article states, “Time management is recognized as an important component of work performance and professional nursing practice, as well as help nurses use different strategies of time management” (Said, 2014). Using time management as a tool can effectively change the way we work and allow us to work smarter instead of working harder. When I took time management assessment, on the first part, I scored a 28, and on the second part of the assessment I scored a 6. This gave me a total score of 22. This score helped me discover some new things about myself that I really have never noticed about myself because it implicates that I am like most people in which I still need to work on my time management skills to achieve the true effectiveness of time management. I was redirected to get suggestions from part one as a way to improve my time management. Considering the many schedules that include family time management is a must for organization. I agree with the assessment. I need to use time management more effectively than I already have as well as look for other methods that will work for me and my family. Although leadership and management are almost always used simultaneously, that they actually mean different things. The lecture says, “A leader can be a manager, but a manager need not necessarily to be a leader”......

...even left his coat!" Potiphar was furious. He called for his servants at once. That very night they broke into Joseph's room and dragged him out of bed, and they threw him into a cold, dark prison cell. Things looked pretty terrible for Joseph again. And maybe that night, Joseph sat in his cell, shivering and scared. Maybe he sat there with his head in his hands wondering why all this was happening. "God, where did you go?" He might have even cried.  If only he could see the amazing things God had planned.  But he couldn't just then. For now, all he could do was trust in God, because God was with him. But, boy, it sure didn't seem like it. But that's how it is. Even in the darkest times, God is still with us. And even then God is at work on a wonderful plan. Always remember that. GOD’S AMAZING PLAN The creator of the whole universe is our Father. We are his children, and Jesus is our brother. All the riches of heaven now belong to us! They belong to us because they belong to God, and we are his children. Just think - the sun, the moon, the earth and stars, are ours! What a wonder! And this was God's plan from the very beginning of time. Before he even made the world, God planned to bring us into his family, to be together with his son Jesus. But there was a problem. How could we ever be with such a good and perfect God, when we know all the bad things we have done? Worse than that, God can't let bad things go unpunished. That wouldn't be right or fair, and......
