If you could, who would you have dinner with ?

Well, it is always pleasant to share a meal with someone special. For instance, in a good company the meal will taste even better, moreover, it can turn into a fascinating talk, full of reminiscences, light humor or witty jokes. If I could invite anyone to dinner, I would not bother people from the past. What is gone is gone, and if we depart with some people on our life way, it is better to remember them the way we used to know them before departure. Besides, it is reasonable to value the people who do not leave you whatever happens. If you have passed much time side by side and you are still together, it is the best option for a good dinner.

If I could, I would have dinner with my mother. On the one hand, she would be pleased to spend time together, as we see each other so seldom, and I would be happy to satisfy her, as I am her lifetime debtor for everything she has given to me, for her life and care. Now it is my time to take care of her. We have a lot of hilarious stories to remember and it is always enjoyable to repeat them.

After the time of having dinner, I will give away carnations to my lovely mother. Carnations represent the symbol of a mother’s undying love and my mother love it so much. I think it will be an enjoyable dinner with mom and both of us absolutely appreciate…...

Who, of Everyone Living and Dead, Would You Most Like to Work with?

...A Scholarship Essay Topic: Who, of everyone living and dead, would you most like to work with? I have always been curious about how different things could be if I were born five hundred years ago in a Renaissance period which is best known for its artistic developments and the contributions of such polymaths as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. They were both great artists but if I could choose to work with one of them, without having to think twice, Leonardo da Vinci would be the one. It would be so much fun to work with a man of unquenchable curiosity and feverishly inventive imagination like him. He was a painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer. I was spellbound when I first learned about his professions and I have held him in awe ever since. Most people may look up to him because of his intelligence or his contributions, which are undeniably outstanding, but the true reason why I honor this man so much is that I don’t see him as a genius but as a human being who has the same hopes, fears, and dreams as we all have. He wasn’t born to a perfect or well-off family and his father ran away when he knew that his mother was pregnant. Therefore, having him wasn’t quite on purpose. Since Leonardo and I suffered the same fate, I feel a connection to him. Behind the paintings and contributions he made, I can feel the innermost loneliness he had hidden. Although......

Are You Sure You Have a Strategy?

...Are you sure you have a strategy? Donald C. Hambrick and James W. Fredrickson Executive Overview After more than 30 years of hard thinking about strategy, consultants and scholars have provided an abundance of frameworks for analyzing strategic situations. Missing, however, has been any guidance as to what the product of these tools should be—or what actually constitutes a strategy. Strategy has become a catchall term used to mean whatever one wants it to mean. Executives now talk about their “service strategy,” their “branding strategy,” their “acquisition strategy,” or whatever kind of strategy that is on their mind at a particular moment. But strategists—whether they are CEOs of established firms, division presidents, or entrepreneurs—must have a strategy, an integrated, overarching concept of how the business will achieve its objectives. If a business must have a single, unified strategy, then it must necessarily have parts. What are those parts? We present a framework for strategy design, arguing that a strategy has five elements, providing answers to five questions—arenas: where will we be active? vehicles: how will we get there? differentiators: how will we win in the marketplace? staging: what will be our speed and sequence of moves? economic logic: how will we obtain our returns? Our article develops and illustrates these domains of choice, particularly emphasizing how essential it is that they form a unified whole. ..................................

Who Are You?

...“If you don’t know who you are, powerful people can make you who they want you to be.” 1.) How do you respond differently to moral vs legal obligations that are presented to you? I have always believed that even though sometimes I am torn between two options, If I am being honest with myself that I would pick the more moral outcome. For moral obligations I imagine myself in the other persons “shoes” and imagine not what would benefit me, but what would benefit them. For legal obligations I try to look at the whole picture and figure out what would benefit the majority of the group. Even if this option may not be better for me, if it is better for the larger sum that is usually my decision. 2.) What kind of leader or mentor do you tend to follow? Why? I tend to follow someone who inspires me, usually through verbal speech or by their actions. I have always admired people who take action and go against the grain of whatever everyone else is doing, but chooses to do whats needed or right. I have made it a priority in my life to make a difference wherever it may be. 3.) What kind of person tends to choose you as a mentor? Why do you think? All throughout school I have always been comfortable stepping up and becoming the “leader” of the group. Mainly because I don’t want us to fail and unfortunately most people are a little shy or bashful with speaking up. I enjoy helping people become engaged with the group and feel comfortable using their strengths to......

...essential to the advancement of human knowledge. Applied research requires researchers to find out a solution to a specific problem by testing theories generated by pure science, and applying them to real life situations, application of GPS based on relativity for example. For any kinds of scientific researches, the first step is always to make a hypothesis which reflects the researcher’s interpretation about the specific question, followed by performing a rigorous study, including experiments to generate reliable and measurable data to prove or test the hypothesis or answer the specific question. Finding a definite answer is something scientists all long for. However, there is no such thing as a perfect theory. The theories that have been proven correct so far are those that best explain certain phenomena and are accepted by most. In my opinion, the purpose of scientific research is really an ongoing process of correcting, refining and supplementing current theories, which will gradually leads us closer to certain scientific truths. With accumulation of such knowledge, applied scientists can better enhance the quality of life on earth through their innovative applications of these ever-refining theories. 成为你自己——尼采 一个看过许多国家、民族以及世界许多地方的旅行家,若有人问他,他在各处发现人们具有什么相同的特征,他或许会回答∶他们有懒惰的倾向。有些人会觉得,如果他说他们全是怯懦的,他就说得更正确也更符合事实了。他们躲藏在习俗和舆论背后。从根本上说,每个人心里都明白,作为一个独一无二的事物,他在世上只存在一次,不会再有第二次这样的巧合,能把如此极其纷繁的许多元素又凑到一起,组合成一个像他现在所是的个体。他明白这一点,可是他把它像亏心事一样地隐瞒着——为什么呢?因为惧怕邻人,邻人要维护习俗,用习俗包裹自己。然而,是什么...

Do You Have Jelly?

...TYPE/TOPIC OF JOURNAL: Do you have Jelly? JOURNAL CONTENT: Section 1 – Critical Incident The nurse that I was observing had taken her lunch and I decided to take this time to go ahead and log in to the computer and look into some of the records of the patients. I hear someone saying help, help. I look around and see no one except TCU students that are sitting at computers picking out their patients for the next day. So I quickly get up and head in to the room. This is not one of my patients, but it is a patient that I had helped with earlier. I head in and introduce myself again while asking the women what I can do to help her. She appears to be about 70 years of age and she is crying. I don’t see anything that appears to be physically hurting her so I ask her what is wrong and she says she is in pain, saying the worst pain she has ever been in. She says it’s as much pain as she was in when she came in. She says her catheter hurts. I know she doesn’t have one I helped take it out earlier. I tell her that she doesn’t have a catheter in anymore and that I am going to go get her nurse for her. She says okay thank you. I go to get the nurse and he is now sitting at a computer and I tell him the situation. He says, “Yeah I just gave her some pain meds and anxiety meds it should work in like 15 min or so.” He was not acting as if he was going to go in there. I say okay I will go let her know. I head back in the room and her hands are in the air and she is crying and......

Who Are You?

...Who are you? The story “Where are you going; Where have you been?” by Joyce Carol Oates is a popular story among the younger college audience. It is without a doubt considered a classis, as it has stood the test of time and been passed down for almost 50 years since its original publication. Not only is it a marvel because of its lengthy existence in schools around the country, but also because of the lessons that it teaches and how they can still relate to people in today’s changed society. Miraculously, different readers can find different meanings whilst reading the same story, however it is most certain that the moral of the story is based around deception. First of all, Connie was a self-absorbed 15-year old girl that - without a doubt - believed she was beautiful. Her mother would often scold her for spending so much time being distracted by her own looks, but in Connie’s eyes, “[H]er [mothers] looks were gone and that was why she was always after Connie.” (389). It was apparent that Connie knew she was beautiful and her life was strung around it. Her room being a mess and her priorities even messier; the relationship between her and her mother was not as strong as it should have been. In spite of this, she turned to her friends for an outlet. A few times a week, Connie would meet up with her friends to escape her life of boredom and what she thought was a sense of jealousy at home. Instead of going to the movies like they said, they would lie and go to the local......

You Always Have Family

...should deserve more. Another great thing my aunt did was adopt a child who I am thankful for today to have as a cousin. Shauna was always part of the family because my aunt would invite her to the annual cooks forest trip every summer. Although one day she decided to ask Shauna if she wanted to officially be apart of the family and to live with my aunt, uncle and other cousins. My aunt was able to provide Shauna with a better life and give her more than her own mom could. She cared so much for my whole family and always brought light to it. Even though she wasn’t my mom she felt like my second one. She always put a smile on my face and I loved the happiness that she brought me. Until one day when the happiness was gone. The world seems to stand still when you are told. That feeling I have never felt before of totally sadness when I heard the news that Aunt Jamie was diagnosed with cancer and only had up to a year to live. Things changed so quickly with in a couple of months she wasn’t getting better but worse as everyday went on. Although she was sick my family and I still made our annual trip to Cooks Forest over the fourth of July. All sixteen of us would pack up and pile into the cars for the week of fun at the cabin we owned along the Clarion River. Ever since I can remember we were going here every summer and Aunt Jamie always had a bunch of activities to keep us occupied. We would walk back to the end of the road that the cabin was on towards the......

What Makes You Who You Are

...Firmender Introduction to College Writing 27 October 2015 There are many factors that shape a person into who they are or who they will become in the future. Not many people can say that they grew up without one of the most important people that will ever be in their life, but unfortunately I did. Imagine not remembering your father, being raised by a single parent, and the worst part of it all, not knowing what its like to have a dad. . For me, my dad passed away when I was just one year old and I believe that is a huge factor in who I am today. It was ten days before I turned two when he passed; I don’t remember anything about him expect his face and that was only from looking at pictures. When I hear the word dad, I most certainly think of mine in an instant, but no memories come to my mind, just his face along with the hope he is up there in heaven. He sang a couple of songs in a band that he was in with a few of my older cousins, which left me with opportunity to get an idea of what his voice sounded like. I have his laugh according to my whole family and my grandma almost cries every time she sees me because apparently, I am a spitting image of my father, who I don’t even know. When I was a little girl I could not bare to be without my mom; I hated going to school and I hated when she went to work, I just never wanted to be away from her because I didn’t know if she would ever disappear like my dad did. I was obsessed with my mom, I panicked if I wasn’t one of......

What Would You Do.

...Background | Since medical law and ethics are often interrelated, you need to have a clear understanding of both in order to protect yourselves, your employer, and the patient. Even though only a small number of malpractice cases actually end up in court, it is nevertheless important for you to understand how the law impacts physicians and employers. In this assignment, you will examine two scenariossurrounding healthcare personnel in their work environment. | Part 1: Legal Responsibility | 30 points | Adam Green is an orderly in the Midwest Nursing Home. His supervisor, Nora Malone, has asked him to supervise the dining room while 20 residents eat their evening meal. Bill Heckler is an 80-year-old resident who is very alert and ambulatory. He tells Adam that he doesn't like the meal that's being served, and he wants to leave the dining room and go back to his own room. Adam is quite busy since he has to watch the behavior of several patients who are confused. He's concerned that patients might choke on their food or otherwise harm themselves. Adam becomes impatient with Bill and tells him that he cannot leave the room until everyone is finished eating. Adam then locks the dining room door. Bill complains to the nursing home administrator that he was unlawfully detained. He then hires an attorney who brings forth a charge of false imprisonment. For each question below, provide an answer in 2 to 3 sentences, using proper grammer and spelling. | A. Was Adam's......

Who You Are

...include those who have looked for a job over a large period of time and have simply quit. For this reason, critics say, real unemployment may be extensively larger than one might think. Throughout the 1900’s there has been numerous polls taken that shocked everyone. The unemployment rate for those who cannot read and write is dramatically higher than for those who can (Simons, 1989). Illiteracy is a hidden problem throughout the United States (Simons, 1989). Another poll taken showed that an estimated 23 percent of Americans can read a stop sign but cannot fill out an employment form. Of those who can read and write, large numbers of adults cannot read and write past the fifth grade level (Zycher, 1995). How are people going to get a job if they are not even able to inform the company of their skills? Another interesting fact, is The severest deficient demand in the United States occurred during the Great Depression in the 1930’s. In fact, at one point the unemployment rate had raised to twenty-five percent in 1933. Fortunately, after world war one had begun the need for military had decreased the rate to as low as 1.2 percent (Reynolds, 1994). On the other hand, most people did not even pay any attention to the unemployment rate, because the considered laziness to be the main cause. Several possibilities have been speculated, but none have been proven to be the single cause of high unemployment. It is plainly clear that there have been......

Are You Sure You Have Strategy

...MgtS 4481 Sec. 5 Geoffry Bell, Ph. D. February 6, 2012 Hand-In Summary 1 Hambrick and Fredrickson’s literature review, Are you sure you have strategy? focuses on the key components of a strategy. Its purpose is to expand on the past 30 years of strategic frameworks and help us identify what actually constitutes a strategy. When executive call everything strategy, they create confusion, so this article works to dispel the misconception many executives and scholars hold that a strategy is a catchall term used to describe whatever they wish. Instead, Hambrick and Fredrickson persuade us that a sound strategy, or as they define – an integrated set of choices, incorporates five separate elements that must work together to create one unified strategy. These five key elements, which are guided by the company’s mission, objectives and strategic analysis form the strategy - consisting of these domains of choice: arenas, vehicles, differentiators, staging, and economic logic. Consideration should be placed on all five elements, and not just a few components of a strategy. These elements call not only for choice, but also preparation and investment. It is important that they align and support one another. Finally, only after the design of all five elements can the strategist plan other supporting activities that are needed to reinforce the strategy such as functional policies, organizational arrangements, and operating programs. The arenas element is the most......
