Oh Happy Day

...Oh Happy Day By Phillip Andrews I walked in the tutoring center on Thursday June 16, 2011, at 12:30p m before math class. I had mixed emotions as I entered the school. My mind was wondering like should I go get help or don’t worry about it. As I turn around the corner heading towards the room I was feeling good about getting help. I sign in at the computer, and one of the tutor named Tony Williams, came over and ask “How may I help you”? Yes, I said, at first I was thinking that he must be smart by the way he looked with glasses and tight clothes on. As I sat down at the table, I notice it was not a lot of people in the center to get help. I ask him “Do a lot of people come get help? “ He replied, not right now because it is still early in the summer semester. “He asked what do I need help with?” I said math class, and pull my book out, my book bag, and showed him the chapter I need help understanding. He looked at the math and said no problem. I told him what type of problems I was having trouble with Integers. I have always had trouble with this part of math before. Tony told me by the time I leave today from the center I will be able to do this math. I laugh and said you are right because inside of me I have this good feeling. We began from the start of Chapter just going over the basic. He wanted to know if I knew the rules for adding and subtracting positive numbers. I showed him I can do it when they are the numbers have the same signs. But when they are......

Where Oh Where Is the Rain??

...Where Oh Where is the Rain?? The drought of 2012 has grown to epic, never before seen size proportions, and is taking its toll on whole lot of people all over the country. Is their relief in sight? Not in the next few months, experts are saying. The drought of 2012 has caused many problems for our farmers, scorched millions of acres of forest and grasslands, and has President Obama scrambling to get relief to those in need. Just how big is this drought we are experiencing? According to the U.S. Drought Monitor (USDM), it’s the largest drought ever recorded in their 13 years they have been monitoring drought conditions. According to the USDM, 62.9 percent of the contiguous U.S. was experiencing moderate to exceptional drought at the end of July. This is an increase of about 6.9 percent compared to the end of June. The maximum value of 63.9 percent reached on July 24, 2012 is the current record holding mark in the 13 year history of the USDM. The percent area of the country in the worst drought categories (extreme to exceptional drought) doubled, from 10 percent last month to 22 percent this month. The other major drought monitoring index is the Palmer Drought Severity Index. This index has been tracking drought conditions for all of the 20th century, much longer than the USDM. The Palmer Drought Severity Index states that about 57 percent of the contiguous U.S. was experiencing moderate-to-extreme drought. The last time drought was this extensive was way back in......

Lincoln earned respect by going out to the war and fighting to preserve the Union. Whitman uses metaphors to show the respect Lincoln has earned. “For you the flag is flung”, this metaphor shows that Lincoln was an important person, and for that reason we will raise the flag to show our honor for him. Whitman shows that he is Mournful for the loss of Lincoln. “For the bugle trills” is another metaphor Whitman uses to show his honor, they are blowing the trumpets Many people are thankful for Lincoln because he fought in the war to free the slaves from the southern states, and he also gave them back their human dignity back. In the poem “Oh Captain My Captain” Whitman says “rise up and hear the bells”, the bell are ringing to celebrate a victory and the people are rejoicing.

Oh What a Lovely War

...Are the songs of ‘Oh! What a lovely war’ a complete and accurate summary of the experience of soldiers on the western front? The musical ‘Oh! What a lovely war’ directed by Joan Littlewood in 1963 portrays the experiences and reality of the war in the four songs, sung by the soldiers, to some level of accuracy. However extracts from Banham, Luff and Vyvyen Brandon suggest otherwise. In some ways, the songs directed by Joan Littlewood do portray the reality of life on the western front and the dangers on the front line and in the reserve trenches. Joan accurately describes the soldiers who want to be ‘Far far from Wipers […] where German snipers can’t get at [them]’. The lyrics give the impression that the soldiers were faced with danger and they wanted to end the war to avoid being shot by ‘German snipers’. This evidence is supported by the Brandon extracts which look at the key issues of how the troops managed to endure the horrors of fighting in the trenches. The extracts describe how ‘at any moment’ soldiers could have been ‘shot by a sniper, gassed or blown to pieces by a shell, mine or bomb.’ This therefore consolidates the idea of the front line being hazardous and proves Joan Littlewoods’ portrayed impression of the war as accurate. Additionally, it can be argued that Joan Littlewood to some extent accurately describes the conditions of the trenches and what the soldiers had to endure. In the song ‘Far Far From Wipers’ it refers to bad conditions such as ‘damp’......

Ohs in the Airline Industry

...Introduction OHS plays an important part in maintaining a healthy and positive workplace. Lack of effective OHS policies can lead to a wide range of harmful effects on the productivity of an organization. Accidents in the workplace can cause substantial losses to an organization’s human capital, create massive losses in labour productivity and decreases the organisations reputation in the market (Saridakis & Cooper, 2013). Studies have revealed that Human Resource Management plays an important part in an organizations ability to maintain adequate OHS (Saridakis & Cooper, 2013). The HR department’s duty is to align HR practices with organisations OHS goals; this could be in the form of recruitment or training policies (Faulkiner, 2009). HR plays an important part in the Airline industry, as there are no production lines, human capital is an organisations greatest asset and a company’s performance relies heavily on how cohesively their employees can work together (Boyd, 2003). The following will be looking at the Big Red Kangaroo Airlines (BRKA) case study in regards to Pernilla’s injury, how/why she was injured, how the organisation could have prevented the injury and the organisations responsibility. Identify how/why she was injured As Identified in the case study BRKA have started employing cost cutting HR policies in order to compete with budget airlines. This has led BRKA to hire young, attractive and inexperienced flight attendants. Pernilla being one......

Oh Dal Ja

...Dalja’s Spring is a 2007 Korean romantic comedy series, starred by Chae Rim as Oh Dal Ja. Dal Ja is a 33-year-old woman who is clueless in her love life and has a fairy-tale dream that one day, she is going to meet “the one” and she will just know it and will live happily ever after. She is successful and competent in her career as a managing director of a home shopping channel. She has stumbled her way through her twenties, making mistakes left and right and learning her lessons, it seems, a bit haphazardly. However, her strength, courage, and candidness are parts of Dal Ja’s character that are to be admired. She seemed like she would be a total blast to be around, someone people naturally gravitated towards but when it was game time, you know she would go out of her way and make every effort and sacrifice within her ability to help you. Dal Ja is such a strong female character that is totally different from other dramas who are wimpy and pathetic. Dal Ja is the dreaded old maid of modern Korean society who is capable, attractive and self-sufficient, but still seen as somehow inadequate because she is without boyfriend or husband. She is kind of like Bridget Jones, except without all the alcohol, dating and sex to take the edge off spinsterhood. It all started when she was stood up in a date by a colleague of hers whom she knows very well and known for his “playboy” status. Out of embarrassment and anger she hired a man, who is 6 years younger than her to play and be her......

Oh Wonder Concert Review

...years ago. On that same day my friend invited me to go to a concert at a music venue called the Casbah, that was able to occupy around 200 people. The band performing at this music venue was the english duo, Oh Wonder with Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West. At first I was a bit hesitant because at the time I did not know who they were and thought they were just some new duo trying to make it big, that would never actually make it, but after attending I was proven wrong. After attending Oh wonder’s concert I was immediately hooked. In the first song they performed called, “Livewire,” I instantly noticed how well Josephine's and Anthony’s voices merged together. The songs had this mystical quality to them and “Livewire” showed that. Anthony’s high voice and Josephine’s low voice merged perfectly together. Another thing I noticed throughout the concert was that most of their songs had very little instrumentation. Some examples of this were the songs “Heart Hope” and “All We Do,” which used only piano chords and some percussion used occasionally. Although I am a person who does like to hear instruments, Oh Wonder’s minimal instrumentation had no effect on my my enjoyment I had throughout the whole concert. Instead of relying on instrumentation to carry their songs, Oh Wonder relied on meaningful lyrics that depicted the songs meanings. This I thought really showed their true potential when it came to authentic songwriting. Even though I did enjoy the concert as a......

Uh Oh

...“Uh oh,” is the immediate thought that comes to teens’ minds when they see the two pink lines appear on a pregnancy test. Nine months later teens are struggling to maintain their schoolwork along with raising a baby. The solution to this problem in the public school system is providing daycare services for the teen parents. This solution may seem like the perfect way to help teen parents stay in school, but this only leads to more problems. Although school daycare services ensures the safety of children and allows teens to stay in schools, these services inevitably encourages teen pregnancies. According to the CDC, in 2013, 273,105 babies were born to women between the ages of fifteen and nineteen. Most of these pregnancies were unplanned and left adolescents in a difficult situation. The biggest concern for teen parents is whether or not the teen will finish school. Many public school systems have thought of a solution to this problem, daycare service. Schools that have a daycare service allow students to stay in school and not worry about where their child is throughout the day. This will help the student focus on their schoolwork instead of being stressed because they know their child is in a safe place. The thought of walking into a high school and encountering a daycare full of children is insane. Many questions have been thought of when it comes to high school daycare services but the main one is: “Does this encourage teen pregnancies?” To answer this, yes. High......
