Cervical Cancer
Cancer is a disease caused when abnormal cells divide uncontrollably in any part of the body. Cervical cancer is a gender specific disease that originates in the lining of the cervix; located in the lower part of a woman’s womb. This area is called the uterus. The women affected will also face a number of other life altering challenges. These challenges include, but are not limited to, infertility.
Although it is unclear what the definite cause of cervical cancer is, HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) is a known culprit. HPV is a very common virus among women, but not all women will develop cancer. Researchers have identified some inherited factors that can lead to the genetic connection of cervical cancer, however, it has not been scientifically proven to be a genetic disease. Although some women will skate through life without knowing or experiencing cervical cancer, it affects millions of women:
Cancer of the cervix is the second most common cancer in women worldwide and is a leading cause of cancer-related death in women in underdeveloped countries. Worldwide, approximately 500,000 cases of cervical cancer are diagnosed each year. In the United States, routine screening has decreased the incidence of cervical cancer—approximately 12,900 cases are diagnosed and 4,100 deaths occur each year. (Cervical Cancer, 2015)
Knowing the risk factors, signs, and an early diagnosis can mean the difference between life and death. Risk factors include Human papilloma virus infection (HPV), smoking, immunosuppression, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), chlamydia, diet low in fruits and vegetables, obesity, long-term use of oral contraceptives (birth control pills), intrauterine device use, multiple full-term pregnancies, being…...

Trying to Find Chinatown

...The drama “Trying to find Chinatown” by David Henry Hwang, the short story “Brownies” by Z. Z. Parker and the poem “I, Too” by Langston Hughes all deal with stereotypes and how the characters in each work deal with them. While differently illustrated by each author, the theme is the same: overcoming the obstacle of stereotypes. In “Trying to find Chinatown”, the main character, Benjamin, is trying to find his roots and feel a sense of belonging. On his way he stops and talks to Ronnie a street musician of Asian descent to ask for directions. Interestingly, Ronnie greets Benjamin with less than stellar enthusiasm because he calls Ronnie’s instrument a fiddle instead of a violin. Ronnie blasts Benjamin with, “If this was a fiddle, I’d be sitting here with a cob pipe, stomping my cowboy boots and kicking up hay.” (page 1825). The anger evoked in this line is strong and little does Ronnie know that he and Benjamin share similar heritages. Benjamin is not only faced with dealing with an ignorant stereotypical slur but ironically so by the very heritage he has come to embrace and is looking to find solace in. Benjamin calls down Ronnie and tells him that “it’s very stereotypical to think that all Asian skin tones conform to a single hue”. (page 1827) Despite being told he doesn’t fit the mold of an Asian American, Benjamin goes on to find his place in Chinatown and “felt immediately…a world where all things were finally familiar” (page1829). Similarly, “Brownies” deals......

...“The difficulty in life is the choice”, 1 100% agree with this quote George Moore indeed would have gotten a vote from me when it came to come true this actually is. To explain his quote in other words; he’s stating the hardships and difficultly in life can most likely be avoided , you step into it and enhance it more that’s where the difficulty comes in which in some many ways could have probably be avoided . The book “Twelve Angry Men” by Reginald Roses is definitely a prime example of chosen difficulty when in many ways it could have been avoided. The teenager in the book “Twelve Angry Men” was on trial for the manslaughter of his own father. In my opinion that teen was all the way guilty. But majority of the 12 jurors saw him as innocent. Some pledged his innocence by justifying the manslaughter by saying he was “ a product of his environment” , claiming the boy grew up in the slums , had it bad all his life , from the robbing’s to the car theft even the stabbing his was involved in with another teen. But let’s be real it wasn’t mandatory for this teen to do those things. In all reality that young boy did those wrong doing himself all by his lonesome. Of course probably his environment gave him ideas and the thoughts in his head, but let’s thinks did the environment put the knife in his hand and forced him to kill his father? No right, so why the environment is the one to blame when it came to this boy reasons for killing his own father? No one lead him down the path of...

...get them going again. There are companies that can help you set up a program that will deal with this problem. Now if you are an employee who has a lack of motivation at your job, then one thing you can do is figure out whether or not you should keep working there. Life really is too short to waste your life doing something you don’t like. If it’s something that is just temporary that will help you get to where you really want to go, then stick with it. Otherwise, you may want to think about what is truly important in your life. If you are a sales manager, then the importance of motivation is especially important. What you can do is to feed your sales team with constant inspiration. Some people are self motivated but don’t slack off in trying to give your team pep talks. If anything, it will be a refreshing message after having to constantly taking rejections from customers all day. So find out what motivates your employees and give them what they need. Giving them a sense of purpose for doing what they do will go a long way. If you are the employee, figure out what it is you want in life and focus on that.

...1997; Saint-Onge, 1996). In order to remain forefront and maintain competitive edge, organizations must have the capability to retain, develop, organize and utilize their IC (Kalling, 2002; Wiig, 2000). They must also be able to consolidate their IC faster than their competitors. Literature has argued that the value of an organization is largely based on the management and utilization of IC (Ukkola et al., 1999; Chris and Emma, 1999; Beveran, 2002). Thus, IC must be explicitly manage so that the competitive advantage will emerge from the way a specific knowledge is applied to production factors (Aranda and Molina-Feraz, 2002). Thus, to explicitly manage the IC, an understanding of how knowledge is formed and how people and organizations learn to use knowledge is essential. There are two levels of knowledge within IC: explicit knowledge and tacit knowledge (Hall and Adriani, 2002; Kamiki and Mphahlele, 2002). Explicit knowledge is articulated knowledge and it can be embodied in the form of documents, standard operating procedures, and blueprints. Tacit knowledge, on the other hands, includes the intuition, perspectives, beliefs, and values that people form as the result of their interactions and experiences (Hall and Adriani, 2002; Kamiki and Mphahlele, 2002). In an organization, tacit knowledge is made up of the collective mindsets of everyone in the organization. This includes the way how a leader of an organization perceives his industry and his organization.  Tacit......

Me-- What Makes Me Me

...a teaching tool, a way to learn and envelop yourself, escape from the world when it becomes chaotic, and get out the thoughts and emotions that just cannot be expressed as words. And I have indulged myself in it from the start. I have become drum major of the Mary G. Montgomery Pride Marching Band, made MCPSS honor band, I sit first chair of my school’s symphonic band, and I am the lead alto saxophone in the MGM jazz band. Strangely enough, this all started with a divorce. When I was in the fourth grade my parents divorced, little did I know it was a blessing in disguise because in fifth grade my father remarried and that’s when it really began; my newfound older step-sister was in the exact same band that I now lead, and because of her I decided that I too wanted to join band. Immediately, I loved it; it came so naturally, and as I progressed, I was amazed at the things I could do with music the way the seemingly subtle change of one thing could completely change the entire experience, emotion, and message that existed within a piece of music. High school is where I truly blossomed as musician. As a freshman, I began playing in the jazz band (which developed into my favorite style to play), I made first chair in the symphonic band over three seniors and a junior, I began learning how to play the bassoon, and I began to teach myself piano and guitar. Currently, I play alto saxophone, bassoon, clarinet, piano, and guitar. Being drum major has given me an experience that is......

...1. Based on the descriptions in the text, where do you see yourself on the Kolb Inventory of Learning Styles? I see myself as concrete experience, and as active experimentation. I see myself as “Concrete Experience” because I am and have always been open to other people’s feelings and experiences. I love listening to others, and being able to empathize with them. I see myself as “Active Experimentation” because I have always really been quick on my feet and ready for any situation that is going to be thrown at me. I am a good decision maker, and problem solver, normally. I love testing myself. 2. After reading about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, determine which personality is most like you, such as ENTJ. The personality that is most like me would be ESFP: E – Extravert because I am outgoing, and talkative. I always say what is going through my mind without thinking. I am an incredible communicator. I am quick to act, and I love being a leader. I do talk too much, and too loudly. S – Sensing because I am interested in the facts. I am practical, and down-to-earth.

...what is most important and what is less important, there are no answers here either—you will have to study the global camera market, try to match wits with rivals and anticipate their moves, and discover what works and what doesn’t in trying to out-compete them. Common sense suggests that such competitive factors like price, P/Q rating, and promotional discounts are quite likely to weigh in more heavily than competitive factors like tech support or number of models. You should anticipate that the weights GLO-BUS places on the competitive factors roughly approximate what might actually prevail in the real-world marketplace for digital cameras. Thinking Strategically: The Importance of Trying to Out-Maneuver Rivals. In striving for gains in unit sales and market share, you must be most concerned with what combination of price, P/Q rating, advertising, promotional activities, model count, warranties, and so forth it may take for your company to achieve the sales volume and market share that you have targeted, given the prices, P/Q ratings, advertising, model counts, warranties, and so on you believe that rivals, on average, will utilize in their own behalf to win the unit sales and market shares they are targeting. Just as you are trying to take sales and market share away from your rivals, rivals are striving to take sales and market share away from you.

...weaknesses listed below. To begin with, grammar is my goodness in learning English. I can analyze and catch up the grammatical structures, tenses, and usages sharply and clearly whenever teachers or lecturers have explained them to me. Also, I rarely make any mistakes in grammar exercises since I am quite careful and thoughtful when building sentences or choosing the right answers. Moreover, good time-management is my another best virtue in studying English. I can separate between my study time and pleasure time distinguishably. Furthermore, I usually sort out a study-calendar, which enables me to submit every homework and assignment to teachers or lecturers on time. To sum up, grammar and good time-planning are my strengths in learning English. Besides, listening is my feebleness in studying English. I am not able to understand the whole conversation well once the native speakers speak very fast. Also, I never get good scores in listening test since I don’t get used to the foreigners’ voice and pronunciation. What’s more, communication is also my imperfection in learning English. I lack self-confidence and become nervous when I talk to others and give presentation in front of many pairs of eyes. I normally feel as though everyone was looking at me rather than listening to my speech. In short, listening and communication are my weaknesses in studying English. In conclusion, I see myself popping up many strengths and weaknesses in.. ...

However, he was not the only one there his “friends” arrived to. I decided to just ignore that and jump to the 3ft high colled water pool I felt a chilling sensation while I hit the bottom of the pool and out of the sudden I started to feel fresh, a little confused but more alive than ever. The pool just awoke this feeling of being reborn, though I was still myself. When I decided to get out up me chilling water was washing out my visage, and that’s when I caught eye of him, It was like being in a drought and suddenly felling the raindrops. He definitely looked differently, I wasn’t sure of what but it made smirk. We both made eyed contact , he for sure saw me the same way, he couldn’t stop smiling but what was I doying, really derrick he was just a friend, no, he definitely dint feel like a friend anymore there was something more to this. It felt exciting and I wanted to know more about this moving emotion. I decided to get out of the water and seek help, to the only girl I know is an expert on this kinds o f situations, Unabella.

...In January 2008 a British journalist, Sarfraz Manzoor, wrote an article with the title “Me, Me, Me” that appeared in the magazine “Esquire”. He gives his opinion on how the phenomenon “New Narcissism” has its influences on today’s society through the Internet. And he leaves us with the impression that there is a reason to be worried about today's youth being more narcissistic than ever before. Narcissism is not new for us. New Narcissism is a modern version of the phenomenon narcissism. And it has been known since ancient Greece with the Greek myth about Narcissus that fell in love with his own reflection in the water. The man that got narcissism recognized as a medical condition was Sigmund Freud (l. 53). But in our age, the word, narcissism, does not seem that serious and is mostly defined as a phenomenon. This New Narcissism has come to life because society reproduces itself (l. 59). And growing numbers of people are more narcissistic according to a study performed by psychologists. Sarfraz Manzoor, who has written this article, describes that New Narcissism is the offspring of today’s society. He makes an example by including a person named Chris Crocker. Crocker became famous because he put a video on the Internet where he defended the celebrity Britney Spears. There can be two reasons for his behaviour. Is he doing this to tell people that they shall back off and because he is fond of her? Or is he doing this to get attention? But it does not seem as if Britney is......
