Moving Forward

There were eight study modules and I completed all of the modules. They were quite easy. Time management was one that I could relate to because I need to learn how to use my time management skills. Copying with stress is another one; if you deal with stress you should be ok. Sometimes stress can take an effect on a person if there not careful, learning to deal stress is hard some times. Getting the proper exercise can help you to cope with stress and other issues you may have. Concentrating when you read and study is another Module. Having a good place to read and study make a difference in a students will being. If you don’t have a good place to study you can get distracted easily. Make sure you turn off your cell phone so that you want get distracted.

Understanding these study skills can help you to make better grades and this will help you to become a better student. The modules were pretty easy to work through. I watched mostly all the video and skimmed threw the html Modules. I will keep this module in mind because I have a stressful life but I try to ignore the stress. I started on time management first, and then I went down the row until I finished them up. I had the same learning style, I used these skills to my advantage when I was working threw them. Using these study skills can help students to understand what they will need to take in order to complete there course. Using the library and the internet can help you to find good resources. I took the Georgia Work Ready Assessment, and it had some reliable sources. To help students to understand study skill in the work place. I will use the writing, math, reading, study skill, and the Pearson tutor Module in mind…...

Ibm and the Tech World Moving Forward

...In the age of technological advances, the older founders the industry were finding it hard to stay afloat as their younger, perkier counterparts took the stage with fancier innovations. Needless to say, they needed to found a way to counteract profit loss and unhappy stock holders. The announcement that IBM would repurchase $2.5 billion of its own stock resulted in a price jump of 7% because "stock buybacks are a traditional way for corporations to return excess cash to shareholders without increasing quarterly dividend requirements. These payments are one-time cash distributions, over and above the normal cash dividend amounts, with the shares normally repurchased in open market transactions. In fact, in recent years, share repurchases have returned more cash to shareholders than cash dividends" (Hurtt, Kreuze, & Langsam, 2008). "Stock buybacks can increase stock prices on announcement, due to the anticipated reduction in the number of shares outstanding" creating a seller's market (Hurtt, Kreuze, & Langsam, 2008). for someone with a surplus of stocks in their hand, this is a favorable situation. "Companies often dispute this direct relationship. Intel, for example, spent approximately $4 billion on stock buybacks during 2004 and issued 63.7 million shares to employees due to the exercise of stock options. To counteract dilution from these options exercises, $641 million in cash outflows were required. Moreover, while Intel has repurchased 2.2......

Pay It Forward

...One of my favorite figures, Ralph Waldo Emerson, wisely wrote, “In the order of nature we cannot render benefits to those from whom we receive them, or only seldom. But the benefit we receive must be rendered again, line for line, deed for deed, cent for cent, to somebody” and this is exactly what “paying it forward” is. Kant says that morality is not just doing the right thing by helping other people, but doing it for the right reasons as well: simply because it is the right thing to do. He holds true that for an action to be moral, it must be done out of a principle which can be applied to everyone equally, a maxim that can be willed to become a universal law. The movie and the book, Pay it Forward, progressively rises towards the moral standards of Kant as the characters come to understand the meaning of this movement and their duty to the world. I saw a bumper sticker the other day that said, “Think globally, act locally.” That is what the kids in Mr. Simonet’s class are really being assigned to do and that is what the Pay it Forward movement demonstrates. We are all connected to each other. The world may be broken but in watching and helping those around us for the right reason, the benefits spread worldwide. Kant agrees that the world is broken, that the human condition is flawed or Trevor in the beginning says, “the world is shit.” Trevor looks at all the bad around him; the trailer homes, the bullies, all the starving homeless people. His mom is a drunk and working......

Mso: Moving Forward and Beyond

...MSO: Moving Forward and Beyond Leslie L Daniels Organizational Behavior Instructor L Dunn South University Online September 9, 2011   Through many hours and meticulously going over all our data, I am here to offer a solution to some opportunities for MSO to move forward beyond this hiccup. MSO has a long history of success. Since its inception it has been groomed for creating a niche that appealed to all women of all walks of life. This organization started in a basement and has grown to a powerhouse of cooking, books, magazines, home products to homes. In the recent year or so MSO has taken some hits. Our stock has suffered, our employees have suffered and most importantly of credibility with our customers. The morale of its employees, the confidence in the market and consumers’ confidence has all taken one in the chin. MSO has to step it up and remove all doubts that this not the same company it was before and the transgressions of the founder are not ours to carry. We are more than just Martha; we are Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. Over the next twenty minutes we will discuss leadership training, change within the organization, opening lines of communications, rebuilding trust in our relationship with our customer and create a motivation that allows MSO to thrive once again in better fashion. First step let us discuss opening lines of communication. It is the first step to restoring the confidence of MSO leadership to its employees. We should lay out a plan to......

...The look that came across his face was a mixture of shock and tension. He glanced up to the menu in silence. His eyes were moving rapidly all around. It looked as if he was not really focusing on any one item but searching and grasping within his mind for the right words to say. He dug deep into his jean pocket and pulled out a wrinkled $20 dollar bill and quietly whispered to the cashier,” I thought that it would be less than that.” He held out his hand grasping the bill tightly. As the lady wrapped her fingers around one corner of the bill it seemed as if he was fighting her grasp, trying to hold onto his money for just one more second. She counted out his change, handed it to him and he slowly walked head hung low over to the table. Looking over at their table I could see that the boy was patiently sitting unaware of the internal stress that was painted on his elderly friends face. I stepped up to the cashier to pay for my meal. The picture of the older gentleman’s demeanor was still etched clearly in my mind. I wanted to help them. But what could I do? I didn’t know the man, his situation, or what he may possibly need. And then I had a thought. Since it seemed so exciting for the little boy to be there, and so very nerve-racking for the elderly gentleman, I would purchase a gift card for the two of them to enjoy a stress free meal. I leaned forward and asked the lady if the man and boy came in there often. She explained to me that they come in once in a while but that......

Health Reform Moving Forward

...Health Reform Moving Forward 10/7/2012 David M Severance | How do you reform something that is so messed up that one wonders how it is possible? Currently on the table is the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), better known as Obamacare (Cannon and Tanner). As someone that is currently uninsured and low income, I would likely benefit greatly from this plan. On the surface it seems like a good idea; however where do we live? When did the United States Constitution give the United States government so much power that they could mandate we participate in a program? Even Income Tax is technically voluntary. PPACA (Obamacare) is the most extensive overhaul of the American health care system since the passage of Medicare in 1965; more so than Medicare part D that came to pass under George W. Bush; which was the largest expansion to Medicare since inception. If reform is what is truly desired, why not look at the effect of what the free market can do if allowed to do what it is designed to do. A few years ago, Target Stores decided to start a program in Florida charging $4 for a 30 day supply of most generic prescription drugs. How long after that did Wal-Mart take the program national? Less than 3 months. There was no way that the world’s largest retailer was going to let Target create a market strategy like that unchecked. Today, just about every major retail city has the same program in several different stores. In Colorado you find it at Target,......

The cost was much higher than most companies dreamed of spending. Username and passwords were an effective and efficient means of security. Computer security was not looked at as a must, but more of a way to keep honest people honest. However, as computing power increased, and corporate espionage has led to massive losses for companies, computer security needs increased. Passwords just were not the best means of securing a network anymore. At the same time, improvements in technology made the use of biometrics more efficient. We will now examine the different types of biometric and how they will make the network more secure. Biometrics to Secure Networks For years, passwords have been the method used to secure networks. A user would input his or her userid and password to gain access. Many times, the userid was also the first portion of the users E-mail address. This......

Moving

...”We are moving to California,” my father said. “This is a great opportunity for a better education.” My father had just arrived at our apartment in Queens, New York City from a long business trip. When he told me, I did not know what to think. This must have been the third time already, having to move from Korea to Poland and back, and then from Korea to New York right after. Though I felt uncomfortable moving frequently, it made me learn to avoid attachments to my surroundings. I felt like I had nothing to hold on to anymore; it seemed like I would have to leave everything behind again. Despite the challenges, these events also brought me to a positive realization of what is important in my life, one being my family. When we lived in New York, my family and I did not have much; however, as a family we were there for each other. My mother, sister, brother and I settled in a single bedroom apartment, while my father was away for business. My uncles, cousins and grandparents lived in the same neighborhood, so we had many gatherings, which drew us all close together. Since my relatives were so involved in my life, I inevitably gained support and guidance from them, which helped me find the second important thing to hold on to, my dream. As I increasingly recognized and valued the support of my family, I gained motivation and focus toward my dream of becoming a nurse. My mother and grandfather especially influenced me. My mother has been a nurse for many years; vividly......

Bsn Professionally Moving Forward

...Running Head: BSN PROFESSIONALLY MOVING FORWARD BSN Professionally Moving Forward Annemarie Rivaldo-Lindner The College at Brockport State University of New York Introduction It is a matter of professional choice at this point. Registered nurses can either, continue their education and earn a baccalaureate, or remain licensed with their associate degree. Both of these degrees allow a registered nurse to take the same exam for licensure. The level of education has proven that those who have completed a higher degree earn more money and have more opportunity for advancement. The registered nurse by some may be viewed more as a trade and not a profession, if those nurses have completed the level of associate degree. There is action being and been taken by other countries to make it mandatory for registered nurses to receive their baccalaureate in order to become licensed and practice. Baccalaureate nursing has proven better patient outcomes, than by those registered nurses licensed with an associate degree. Baccalaureate registered nurses earn a higher salary and have more opportunity for advancement; they are able to handle situations which require critical thinking skills and a more complex patient assignment. Pro’s and Con’s There are points in which an associate degree registered nurse will remain just that. The registered nurse role is extremely demanding. The idea of working 8-12 hours...

Brands Moving Forward

...The brand must always move forward; moving forward in the right direction, with new and compelling offerings and ways to market them (Kotler & Keller, 2009 p 253). Brand must carry on tradition and legacy for the future generation. I believe that brand with time and tradition behind them are stalwart. From a marketing managers perspective, they must make sure that they are meeting organizations goals and objectives by developing and maintaining marketing strategies in creating a strong brand for consumers. Kotler & Keller stated that marketer’s must have a vision of what the brand must be and do for consumers, which is called brand promise (Kotler & Keller, 2009). An article by Jim Carroll, he states that a brand is no longer what you say it is-it’s what they say it is. Carroll states that brands have become tarnished, losing respect in the eyes of consumers because of obsolescence, competition, and business model change or simply as we have seen of late, failure and error (Carroll, 2009). Carroll also challenge organizations ask themselves if their brand is from the “olden days” (Carroll, 2009). Carroll also points out that organizations need to be about brand innovation because it will most likely impact the brand (Carroll, 2009). Carroll states that organizations must: 1) Recognize that brand longevity is a critical issue; 2) Ensure that everyone in the organization is relentlessly focused on the currency of the brand; 3) Make sure that continuous brand innovation is...

Core Curriculum: Moving Forward

...Core Curriculum: Moving Forward What is core curriculum? A curriculum is a set of courses that students are required to take in a school. Curriculum could one of two things, the range of courses from which students have to take or a specific learning program. The core curricula are most often instituted at the primary and secondary level by the Department of Education. In the near future the entire US School System will be transitioning into the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). “The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are the latest iteration of this phenomenon and they will define the educational landscape in the United States for many years to come” (Gehsmann & Templeton, 2012). In 2009-10 states were given the option to adopt the new standards with the possibility of competitive funds from the federal government. While the transition to these new standards will not be easy, it will thrust education into a place it has never been before. “Implemented correctly, the common standards and assessments can vault education over the barrier of low-level test preparations and toward the goal of world-class learning outcomes for all students” (Conley, 2011). The standards will highlight two areas, English and mathematics. However, high school English standards are for reading, writing, speaking, and listening and intertwined with other subjects as well. The goals of these standards are to specify the knowledge and skills that teachers are suppose to assess and to raise......

Moving in

...Well, the student year has already started, I’m all settled in but I still the painful process of researching housing options. Isn’t that crazy that you have to fight for the apartment you have never seen 5-6 months in advance?! Well, I got lucky to find my apartment and that was the best decision I could have made. I live in Neil Building; it’s student residential hall, located in South Campus. I absolutely love my place for the following reasons. Firstly, my apartment is fully furnished!!! Yes!! Can you imagine a tiny girl moving or assembling the furniture alone?! I wouldn’t be able to do that, that’s why my main search criteria was to find a furnished place. The studio has everything that person may need: desk, drawers, closet, shelves, bed and fully equipped kitchen. The only thing you need for move-in process is to move in with your luggage, that’s it! Secondly, there is a huge cafeteria Marketplace on the first floor of the building. They have numerous eating options, starting from salads and sandwiches and ending with pasta and soups! Btw, their broccoli and cheese soup is amazing! You may want to check it out! What I like the most is that residents of Neil Building have separate entrance to the café; you have to swipe your BuckID and you are already there. When it rains on weekend and I don’t feel like going out, I can just go down and use the magic door to access the food paradise. Thirdly, the staff at Neil Building is very helpful and friendly. For example,......

Moving Away

...By now, I’ve moved four times in my life. I am still in contact with the friends that I’ve made all over the world. There is a first time for everything though, and the first time I moved to a different country was an extremely nerve-wracking experience for me. I was only eight years old, and one day, my mom announced that we would be moving to China for a few years. I didn’t know what life would be like there; I just knew we would be flying to a place far away. At the time, I didn’t understand the concept of having to fit in with a new community, so my only concern was not being able to see my friends in Vancouver ever again. I had had the same friends for my entire life, and I wasn’t prepared to leave them. I was only in the third grade, but nevertheless, I cared about my friends very much and was extremely reluctant to cut off all connections with them. When I left, I cried a river, and I was as miserable as a cat standing alone in the rain. Then, I was introduced to my first cellphone. I hadn’t known that there was a way to keep in contact with someone when they were on the other side of the world. This was a huge surprise to me, and I was ecstatic. Immediately, I asked my mom to contact my friends, my phone wouldn’t stop dancing on the table from all the vibrations. I couldn’t help but feel extremely foolish for thinking I would be leaving everything back in Vancouver forever. Now, when I move to a different place, I’m not as worried that I would be losing my friends...

Moving to the Usa

...MOVING TO THE USA Moving to a foreign country can be both, challenging and exciting experience. Even though I felt ready for such an adventure, no amount of preparation could get me ready for what I was about to experience. When I flew from Peru, my last destination was New York. It was my first time flying and I totally got lost in such I big airport. As soon as I got off the airplane I wanted to pick up my luggage, but I didn’t know that there was a train inside the airport which would lead me to the right luggage claim number gate. Since I knew my baggage claim number, I started to walk looking for my baggage. After almost thirty minutes of walking, following signs directions, I felt that something was wrong. I was tired and wondering how much longer I had to walk, so with my Basic English knowledge I asked to an officer to help me find the baggage claim number, showing him my airplane ticket. He looked at me and smiling he said: “You would get to this baggage claim number tomorrow if you keep walking, young lady”. I didn’t understand very well if he was joking, so I asked again if he could help me. He kept smiling and said: “Seems like it is your first time flying isn’t it?” which I responded whit an ashamed “yes it is”. Luckily very kindly he explained that JFK was a very big airport and trains needed to be taken in order to get the right baggage claim number. I started laughing at myself because I was walking for thirty minutes thinking that my luggage were that close...

Thinking Forward

...Desmond Scott Professor Barley English-1A 16 June 2016 Thinking Forward The question is to have or to have not, to become or succumb, to thrive or to survive. The United States is an interesting case of the “haves” and the “have nots” considering it’s one of the wealthiest nations in the world and yet there are still those who sleep on the street. Bambara’s illustration in “The Lesson” serves as an exposé on the mentality, self-esteem, and environment primarily of the “have nots.” The pivotal point in the story is that the children are introduced to a new, yet profound truth. That truth is this: There’s more to life than just the ‘hood. Though the story took place roughly 4 decades ago it’s quite obvious that there are still inequalities in America. A general explanation of this issue would be that we still have an upper-class, middle-class, working-class, and lower-class which indicates the unequal distribution of wealth. However, as it relates to this particular story despite the main inequality of in the story, Bambara presents a dichotomy of two different groups of people with two different realities colliding head-on. When Sugar says “You know, Miss Moore I don’t think all of us here put together eat in a year what that sailboat costs.”(Bambara 7) She indicates that she and the other kids live in a reality where their families live paycheck to paycheck and to even think of something a nice as F.A.O. Schwarz is a pipe dream. On the other hand, Ms. Moore lives in a......

...Pay It Forward Wendy Easton March 12, 2012 PSY 490 Radha S. Shanker, Ph.D. Pay it Forward Philosophers for centuries have debated if a prosocial act regardless of the degree of generosity or unselfishness the act may appear on its surface exists genuinely altruistic (Kowalski & Westen, 2009). People who volunteer to work at the local food closet may do so based on a genuine desire to help other people or to assist in alleviating a personal anxiety. I believe altruism exists and will provide a personal example to support this belief. In addition, I will explain further altruism, how it relates to psychology, and to personal, professional, and social responsibilities, and its effect on the future of psychology. Personal Experience Summary My life as I perceive it exists busy; consequently, I reside perpetually behind schedule. However, I do make time to drop food and personal hygiene items off and visit with the managers of the local food bank the first Wednesday of every month. The individuals and families that enter the building are each gracious and grateful for the food and other products offered. I have never witnessed any person display embarrassment for the need for assistance, in fact, I had not thought about that emotion until this assignment. Each person I have encountered either dropping off or in need have resided authentically friendly and appreciative. Genuinely, I do not believe that any person possesses expectations. Consequently, I do......
