Super Mom During the Anglo-Saxon period, heroes were seen as semi divine people. They were characterized by their strength, their courage and their loyalty. Today, a hero in our sense is usually associated with celebrity. A hero is awarded for the things they do for other people, as helping out for helping out the people of the world, like Rosa Park. A celebrity is a famous person that you’ll see on television or in songs, they represents positive and negative character traits. They are not rewarded for what they did, but they do get pay for what they do. The Anglo-Saxon period required men to be strong. Strength was tested in battle. These qualities certainly are not all that a hero should do, but these should out shine all others. Who better to represent these many heroic qualities than women, of faith, and courage? I admired Shawn Peterson for many years. A hero today must be strong. One must have the strength to fight over and over again. She must have faith in oneself to defeat her battles. A hero must have the patience to realize that things are worse before they get better. A hero must have determination in order to achieve goals and aspirations, in today’s society. Strength makes one stronger. Weakness is just pain leaving the body. Determination is necessary in society because a hero gets out of life what she puts in to it, and if she puts effort, she will be rewarded for her determination. A hero must be patient and secure to help others. If not patient then why help, can’t help people if oneself is going to rush the situation. Like it’s always says, “Patient is the key to contentment.”(Mohammed). My hero was born in October 1968 to Sylvia Murray and Samuel Peterson. She grew up in a big house downtown on Clemson. She attended Burke High School and graduated…...

...One of the biggest issues of working in teams or groups is the clashing of personalities of its members. When there is a team of people with all different types of personalities that do not necessarily mix it can cause problems with communication, cooperation, and participation. According to the Encarta World Dictionary, personality is defined as the totality of somebody's attitudes, interests, behavioral patterns, emotional responses, social roles, and other individual traits that endure over long periods of time. So when someone’s personality is conflicting with another person’s, it makes it really difficult for them to get along or work together. There are many different types of personalities but we can use the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to get a general overview of the types of personalities that exist and why clashing occurs. In the book Type Talk by Otto Kroeger and Janet M. Thuesen (1988), the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is broken down into four categories: Extroversion vs. Introversion, Sensing vs. Intuition, Thinking vs. Feeling, Judging vs. Perceiving. Extroverted people tend to be very approachable, outgoing, and social. They have many close friends and need to be included in everything. Extroverts love being the center of attention and do not like alone time. They do not like to do critical or reflective thinking alone. They need reassurance from others before believing or accepting a truth. They are quick to speak and often say the wrong things. Introverted...

The Real Cost: More Than Money

...The Real Cost: More than Money Years ago, there was never a concern for smoking. Adults began at a young age and smoked everywhere, from bars and restaurants to movie theaters and airplanes. It was accepted socially and there were no rules against the habit, because no one fully understood the repercussions from it. According to recent research, of the more than 2.4 million deaths in the USA annually, over 440,000 are caused by smoking (Nordqvist). It is the largest cause of preventable death in the world and most of the deaths that could be prevented are adults. Tobacco companies understand that their product kills off their older customers, which is why they begin to aim their marketing strategies towards teenagers, in hopes that they will try cigarettes and become addicted to the nicotine, making them lifetime customers. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) sees this happening and has decided to take action against the behavior, via social media and public service announcements. The FDA has launched a new tobacco prevention campaign called “The Real Cost,” which is aimed toward youth. It targets adolescents ages 12-17 who are at risk of picking up smoking as a permanent habit. The goal of the campaign is to educate these youth about the harmful effects of tobacco use and in the long run reduce the amount of smokers in the future. There are several commercials based on “The Real Cost” aimed at teenagers that can be viewed during breaks on television channels most......

...manufatures and placed onto clothing by expensive European jewelers, such as Harry Winston and Vancleef & Arpels. Moreover, there are different types of clothing for men and for women that have been developed throughout the years and each garment is closely associated with the climate, region and the local culture. Traditional clothing that women wore and still wear today in northern India as well as southern India is known as sari. Sari is derived from Sanskrit and literally means “strip of cloth.” Typically, the most elegant saris are usually made out of silk. However, such an elegant piece of clothing like a silk sari, would typically be seen in Mumbai, one of India’s fashion capitals, where in the rural parts of India, clothing that is more geared towards the traditional side would be worn. Now, saris are known with different names in different regions. For example, in Kerala, a south-west region of South India, white saris are only worn on special occasions and they are known as kavanis. In contrast, a simple white sari that is worn every day, is known as a mundu. This not only shows the versatility and diversity across the regions of South Asia, but also shows how each region adapted different names for the different types of clothing. Apart from the sari, women had other options like gharga choli, kurta and salwar kameez. Not only did women have their particular clothing garments, but men did as well. Some of the most common types of clothing that men use and......

Why Customers Risk Spending More Money Online

...can now be brought over the internet including groceries, clothes, electronics, and household products. More conveniently, millions of shoppers have fast access to the web from their computers, tablets, and smart phones. Though many customers feel online shopping provides a wider selection and an easier retail experience, many may not know that shopping online can cause them to spend much more money. With more people accessing the internet, easier checkout, business targeting techniques, limitless shopping carts, and ship to store options, online retailers have found ways to get customers to spend more online then they would in in a traditional store. People spend more time online than ever before. In fact, “US adults spent on average 34 hours per month using the mobile internet on smartphones. By comparison, they spend 27 hours on the PC internet. (Sterling, 2014)”. With over 61 hours a month online, or an average 2 hours a day, American’s have numerous opportunities to click on advertisements or wander onto retail sites in between performing daily work, checking email, browsing social media, and other seemingly unrelated shopping activity. This massive increase in internet usage, has contributed to more spending. With excessive exposure to shopping opportunities and marketing, users can find themselves making impulse purchases while surfing the internet and spend money that may not have, while at home doing other activities.

Which Is More Important Love or Money?

...for hours, but I will try to explain my personal opinion on the matter. Love and money are two things totally different; one is an emotion and feeling while the other is material. I think love is the main ingredient that a person needs to feel self-satisfaction as well as it is the most wonderful gift we got from God to share it with our family and friends. Money is important in our life; however, we are not sure if we will have it forever and in this case, just feelings mainly love and the support of your closest people can help you deal with any difficulties you are experiencing. In the world, there are so many people who are poor but love each other; also, there are many rich people who are not happy with their partners because some of them just choose each other for economic interests. I agree that money is necessary to survive and get the basics in life. However, in rich cultures people can become more materialistic and lose touch with the important simple things such as relationships, sensibility and humility. Money combined with power can lead to corruption, which is very common in some parts of the world, so that can put in danger the democracy and the ability for society to have justice, fairness and equality. Love and money are essential in life, but we will have a better world if everyone has more love and peace to share rather than money. Furthermore, personally I find more important the love and support from my family and close friends to help me......

...and innovation, and in this context it offers valuable insights into the power of open innovation. Johnson's central premise is that" [g]ood ideas... want to connect fuse, recombine... crossing conceptual borders. They want to complete each other as much as they want to compete." For Johnson, seven factors fuel the recombination and migration that catalyze innovation: the adjacent possible, liquid networks, the slow hunch, serendipity, error, exaptation, and platforms. Seven sections of the book explore these factors in detail, providing vivid examples and engaging stories drawn from the frontlines Conclusion There has been a great stride in good ideas and the relevance is still evolving as new ideas and creativity continues to grow.
