...whole and any given individual is doing in the class and how well they are grasping any given concept. Without tests there would be no way to tell how well the class is doing, and there is no way to ensure that the class is paying attention. You know there are many disadvantages of Exam, so we should try to improve it, for example, exams makes many students and teachers focus only on the marks but not the ability, even the society judge a person by his marks at school, this is harmful to the young generation and also to many family, so we should change this situation. No, I think that exams help kids remember all the stuff they learned. I, at least, usually forget everything we learned in a certain chapter after the test and exams help me remember the basic idea so that I don't lose the information completely. They should not be abolished because they help to prove that you know what you are learning. I am a student too but as much as I hate exams I know we need them so instead of wasting time on the comp.

Ten Easy Steps to a Successful 401 (K)

...Ten Easy Steps to a Successful 401(k) For the majority of working Americans, the most common vehicle for owning mutual funds is through their employer's retirement plan, but very few people are making the most of this mainstay of retirement planning. Over the holidays, I had occasion to socialize with a group of very bright, successful people who are saving for retirement. We talked of many things, including their investments. And, sad to say, not one of them could coherently explain what he or she was doing, and why. Everybody, it seems, wants a quick, easy answer. And for those who are unwilling to take the trouble to figure out what they should be doing, the easy answers usually come from slick sales pitches and superficial media hype about the hottest stocks, funds and managers -- as if successful investing were a popularity contest. That's the bad news. The good news is that investors can manage their 401(k) plans to make their retirement money work much harder for them. Lots of people spend at least a dozen hours planning a vacation. I often wonder why so few are willing to spend a dozen hours managing their retirement assets. The following ten steps to 401(k) success shouldn't take more than a dozen hours. If you're young, they could put an extra $2 million into your retirement fund. Even if this job requires a total of 100 hours, that's a payoff of $20,000 an hour -- for work you can do at home in your spare time. Let's start with the most basic guideline of...

...Bible Question: The Bible says "it's not good for a man to touch a woman", but it does not actually say it is wrong. Is it wrong (a sin) to touch a woman before marriage, like holding hands, hugging, an occasional peck on the lips, but nothing serious, like fondling or groping (foreplay)?   Bible Answer: The Corinthians had written to Paul asking a question about marriage in 1 Corinthians 7:1. The New King James Version captures the actual meaning of the Greek better than the NASB or the NIV.     Now concerning the things of which you wrote to me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. (NKJV) 1 Corinthians 7:1-5        "To Touch A Woman." First, we want to understand what the phrase "to touch a woman" means. The phrase "to touch a woman" is an idiom that referred to "sexual relations." In fact, the Greek word that Paul uses for "to touch" is APTO. It has the sense of "touch," "cling," and......

...can see, such as language, behavior, food and dressing, 90 percent of which is what you cannot see, such as beliefs, values, and ways of thinking,”(Hasan et. al, 2012, p. 4). The culture of a corporation relates to the “unique modes of carrying out their activities,” (Dartey, 2013, p. 39). Forces in the external environment constantly demand companies to assess their organizational environment. The field of business is always changing and it is important for companies to continually evolve. With economic globalization it is necessary for each corporation to adapt to change and interpret event that occur in the environment. Managers, HR professionals, and employees contribute to the success of their organization. When businesses decide to step into the international market they have to face some challenges. Regardless of where in the world the business is expanded, human resources professionals have to collaborate with local professionals to attend to changes within the corporation and adjust the HRM system. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the role of HRM cross culturally and how cultural issues are resolved. National cultures influence strategic decisions and leadership styles “as well as human resource management practice such as performance appraisal,” (Dartey, 2013, p. 40). Studies have shown that in cultures where high power distance exists, “loyalty and obedience to those in higher authority is required,” (Darte, 2013, p. 40). So management makes use of......

...I choose the novel Step by Wicked Step written by Anne Fine. The memorable event from the novel is the honest conversation between Pixie and her stepmother Lucy. I think that the conversation is important because it affects Pixie's life. First of all, I think that the conversation is important because Pixie has a chance to tell the truth about her feelings. Pixie tells Lucy that she hates to pretend that their family is normal. It is hard for her to accept strangers as family. She dislikes her stepsisters. When Hetty moves into Pixie's bedroom after quarreling with Sophie, Pixie is very angry. She tries many ways to get rid of Hetty. Apart from that, I think that the conversation between Lucy and Pixie is important because Lucy also gets a chance to express her feelings towards Pixie. Lucy hates being a step mother. It is very hard for her to take care of someone else's child. Lucy is angry when Pixie when Pixie tries to get rid of Hetty from her bedroom. Last but not least, I think the heart to heart conversation is memorable because it improves the relationship between Pixie and Lucy. They understand each other better. at the end of the conversation, they are crying and hugging each other. After that day, their relationship becomes better and they are more like a normal family. In a nutshell, I think that the honest conversation between Lucy and Pixie is memorable because it improves the relationship between Pixie and her step family. I learn many things from......

Essay Writing Step by Step

...ESSAY WRITING STEP BY STEP “Write an essay? But I don’t know how!” If you are unnerved by the thought of writing a college essay, remember that this task can be accomplished in the same way as any other—one step at a time. An effective essay is the result of careful thinking, planning, writing, and revising. If you work hard on the first two steps, the last two will be much easier. Your goal is to produce an essay whose content is focused, well-developed, and clear. THINKING (Many decisions must be made before you actually write anything down.) 1. Consider purpose: The general purpose of your essay will usually be determined by your instructor. To be sure you know the specific purpose of your particular essay, complete this sentence: “The purpose of my essay is to ….” Example: General Purpose: Describe in detail an important characteristic of a person you know well. Specific purpose: The purpose of my essay is to describe my mother’s kindness toward her family, friends, and co-workers. 2. Consider audience: The identity of your audience will determine how much background information will be necessary and what terms need to be used or defined. For example, an essay written for nurses on care of the elderly will include less background and more technical information than an essay written for the general public on the same topic. Unless directed otherwise, you should write for an uninformed audience. Even if your...

...ENGLISH – STEP BY WICKED STEP SAMPLE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS 1. Choose one character that you like and give your reasons why you like the character.  From the novel 'Step By Wicked Step' by Anne Fine, I like Claudia from the story the Green Pyjamas. I like Claudia because she is kind, loyal and she can be very mature and wise.      Claudia is a very kind girl.  During her father's birthday party, Claudia wears her green pyjamas given by her father's girlfriend, Stella. She decides to do this because she feels that the guests in the party are very rude when they refuse to talk to Stella. They act like Stella is invisible and Claudia feels angry because Stella is actually a very nice person.      Other than that, Claudia is also a loyal daughter to her mother.She knows that her mother hates the fact that her father is happy with a new woman in his life so she pretends that she is unhappy when she has to go to her father's house. Claudia also refuses to accept Stella's kindness because she wants to show that she is loyal to her mother.      Lastly, Claudia shows that she is very mature and wise. Claudia feels that the guests for her father's birthday party are very rude. They do not want to acknowledge that Stella is her father's new love by giving her a cold shoulder during the party. Claudia is very angry with all those immature adults so she decides to give all of them a lesson by wearing her new green pyjamas and showing it off in front of the guess, hinting......

Ten Billing Steps

...Lisa Collins Instructor: Mrs. Donna Purvis, MBA HLTH245 Principles of Reimbursement Management September 29, 2015 Ten Step Billing Process The ten steps of the medical billing process have been divided into three categories: The visit, the claim and the post claim. Following the billing steps to complete correct claims ensures that providers are paid accurately and timely for services and procedures. The Billing process begins with the preregistration of patients. Collecting personal, basic demographic information, and insurance information and entering that information into the database. All of this personal information can be referred to at any time during the medical billing process. Keeping up to date patient and insurance information makes patient check in more efficient and eliminated potential billing errors. Confirming financial responsibility is the next step in the billing process. Once a patient’s information has been updated in the computer system it is then the medical staffs’ responsibility to determine who will be paying for the services rendered for the appointment. Insurance providers are contacted and benefits are verified as different plans have different levels of coverage. Once the medical staff is aware of what the allowable insurance benefits are, contact with the patient should be made so the patient is aware of their responsibility for out of pocket, non-covered expenses, co-payments, and deductibles. During the appointment, the......

Steps to Christ

...SARAH JULIEN | USCMB MATERGUIDE | January 31, 2016 Steps to Christ Book Report Steps to Christ Book Report The book Steps to Christ was written by Ellen G. white, in the year 1892. It contains thirteen (13) chapters all of which provide a deeper understanding and meaning of Christ and the way in which we can use the bible to get to know him on a much more intimate level. In order for an individual to properly accomplish anything in life inclusive of a meaningful relationship with another they must invite Christ in their lives, and since many of us have difficulties doing so, this small book written by Mrs. White provides us with a step by step tutorial so to speak on how to accomplish this. Chapter one is entitled “God’s love for man”. This chapter speaks about God’s undying love for us, despite the factor that we disobey him daily, he still protects us and cares for us. Many times people only look at the things that they ask God for and don’t receive or the bad things that are allowed to happen to them. Rarely ever do people genuinely take the time to think about the evil things that God is protecting them from that they cannot see, or how much care he puts into us. Without him we would have no life, we wouldn’t be able to eat or do any of the things that keep us alive. The only reason we are alive today and have the hope of salvation is because God sacrificed his son so that through him we might be saved. Therefore step one is to view the intensity of God’s......

Moral Value Step by Wicked Step

... choose the novel Step by Wicked Step written by Anne Fine. The most important moral value that I have learnt from this novel is honesty. There are many examples which show the importance of honesty throughout this novel. First of all, we can see that in this novel, parents are not being honest to their children. They do not tell their children what is happening between them. This causes the children a lot of stress and worry. For example, Lilith Harwick does not tell her children that their father is dying. We see how distressed Richard is when guessing the truth about his father's condition. When Colin's mother decides to leave Colin's dad and move up north, she does not explain the reason to Colin. Colin does not like his new life and misses his dad a lot, but his mother does not seem to be aware of how he felt. Apart from that, the parents' lack of honesty makes the children keep their thoughts and feelings to themselves. This is bad because it may cause the children to take the wrong action. For example, Colin stops talking about his dad to his mother, but plans to run away to find him one day. However, when parents are honest about their feelings and open up to their children, their relationship will get better. This can be seen in the case of Lucy and Pixie. After they burst out and tell each other their true feelings, their relationship improves a lot. Pixie respects Lucy and Lucy gives Pixie time and space to adapt to her new family. In a nutshell, honesty......

Ten Steps in Auditing

...Ten Steps In Auditing Advanced Auditing 606M Jeremy Borden The purpose of this paper is to explain the purpose, goal, and/or outcome of each step in the audit process. The steps included in these pages are essential when conducting any audit of any company. Although specific audit procedures are different from one engagement to the next, the following steps are involved in every engagement. The first step in the audit process for any engagement is to make contact with the potential client. The goal of this step is to obtain new audit business. This is often times is done through the submittal of a general proposal that includes details on the nature of services provided, the qualifications of the firm’s auditors, anticipated fees, and other pertinent information to persuade the client to choose the firm. If the potential client is a publicly held company, arrangements for the audit are made through the audit committee. The proposal and oral presentations are made to provide a basis for selection. If the potential client is a private company, a partnership, or a smaller company, arrangements are made through the owners, a partner, or an executive of the company. This initial contact will often lead to oral discussions, negotiations, and other fact-finding topics before a final formal proposal is written and the audit is accepted. The proposal will also include a mention of contacting the previous auditor of the potential client. This is important because......
