Biography of an Autocratic Lefty

Allister Von Crane was born and raised in a small town in Germany. His father and mother were the son and daughter of two different political leaders; he had one sister who died at child birth leaving him an only child. Allister was always brought up to be a tough man and moreover he adopted the character from his parents’ lifestyle who were atheist. Allister was home schooled and his parents were also of a wealthy background. (The Von in Allister’s name was a sign of aristocracy). Allister was born in 1906, when his Grandfather ruled as one of the most powerful dictators in history of Germany. Being that Alister was the only Grandson. His grandfather brought him up in a way so that one day he would take his seat as a dictator and ruler of Germany, when he was no longer able to carry on his task. Just as his Grandfather was a warlord and was feared by all his colleges Allister was feared even more. In 1931 when his grandfather died Allister took over his grandfather position of leader at a tender age of twenty –five. Not only was he the youngest authoritarian leader ever to rule over Germany but he was also the worst in his time. He didn’t value Christianity; he made the economy sore by all means, as was always ready to punish anyone who defies his authority. His army was one of the biggest in the world and Crane had more than enough weapon of destruction to go into bloody battle with any country that questioned his authority. Growing up in a society where dictatorship was all he knew about, this made Crane one of the most crude and aggressive businessmen ever to cross the face of Germany.

Although his country was wrong in many ventures whether within or internationally, he was always in support of his country whether it was right or wrong. Moreover anyone who was a citizen of Germany and tried as much as defying his…...

Lefties for a Day

...Running Head: LEFTIES FOR A DAY 1 Lefties for a day Emily McFadden Temple University LEFTIES FOR A DAY 2 Cultural diversity in the workplace has been studied for over four decades. Its meaning is more than the hiring of employees of a different race, gender, culture, sexual orientation or those with disabilities. Taylor Cox and Stacy Blake wrote an article about the implication of cultural diversity for organizational competitiveness. In this article they state that “effective management of diversity could benefit organizations in areas of cost, resource acquisition, marketing, creativity, problem solving, and system flexibility.” (Bell, 2007, p.4). Armed with this knowledge, managers and professionals must get to know their employees, more important than this; they must help all the employees understand cultural diversity. Everyone wants a sense of belonging, fitting in whether it is in the community as a whole or more importantly to them at their place of work. When our managers promote cultural diversity, they aid in not only making everyone feel comfortable, but show respect for the differences we all have. There are some workers who feel that their culture is the best, superior to all others. This is the defined as being ethnocentric. "Ethnocentric." Def. 1. Merriam-Webster. N.d. Print.

Waiting for Lefty

...Smith Theatre 23 April, 2012 Theatre (extra credit paper) – “Waiting for Lefty” My intentions going into the play were that it was not going to interest me at all. Personally, I am not a big fan of watching other kids act out a play. I have gone to many plays in high school where my friends were performing, and I was bored and not impressed by the production. However, this play actually surprised me with how good the acting was. The students were really into their characters and made me believe there emotions were real. In comparison with high school I felt as though kids were holding back and embarrassed to really get into the play. Something I was not that impressed with was the scenery, though. I was expecting there to actually be background objects, not just a wall with screen projections. I do not think it took away from the play at all though, I was just expecting something different. Another good part about the play was the clothes that they wore. I felt like everyone’s costumes were appropriate for the time and all fit them well. I even noticed in one scene the girl’s bra strap fell down which was not supposed to happen, but she just fixed it right away and continued as if nothing happened. Overall, the students’ great acting skills in “Waiting for Lefty”, “Sure Thing”, and “The Philadelphia” really impressed me and got me into the play. I almost felt as though it was real life in “Waiting for Lefty”, but that could also have been because the play dealt with real......

Biography

...What is a biography? A biography is a written account of the series of events that make up a person's life. Every student will write a biography at some point, but the level of detail and sophistication will differ. A fourth grade biography will be much different from a middle school-level biography or a high school or college-level biography. However, each biography will include the basic details. The first information you should gather in your research will include biographical details and facts. You must use a trustworthy resource to ensure that your information is accurate. Basic details include: * Date and place of birth and death * Family information * Lifetime accomplishments * Major events of life * Effects/impact on society, historical significance While this information is necessary to your project, these dry facts, on their own, don't really make a very good biography. Once you've found these basics, you'll want to dig a little deeper. You choose a certain person because you think he or she is interesting, so you certainly don't want to burden your paper with an inventory of boring facts. Your goal is to impress your reader! You'll want to start off with great first sentence. It's a good idea to begin with a really interesting statement, a little known fact, or really intriguing event. You should avoid starting out with a standard but boring line like: "Meriwether Lewis was born in Virginia in 1774." Instead, try starting with......

Lefties for a Day

...Let’s Be Lefties for a Day! “Diversity. It is a word that means something different to each and every person.” (Campinha-Bacote, J., 2003) There are many other faces of cultural diversity besides knowing the values, beliefs and practices of different ethnic groups. A few include religious affiliation, gender, political orientation and socio-economic status. The ball and sock experiment put into perspective how minorities might feel….different. Just trying to get through daily activities like brushing my teeth and eating cereal wasn’t easy and it made me realize that having a handicap was challenging and that a certain disability, strong accent, or a religious belief can make you a target for discrimination. Diversity can be a benefit and not a divider and understanding how to interact with individuals of a different culture teaches you how to see common values and appreciate different perspectives. “Cultural values give an individual a sense of direction as well as meaning to life.” (Campinha-Bacote, J., 2003) Cultural competence plays an important part in helping managers and professionals in a business setting to meet the needs of culturally diverse groups. U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Office of Minority Health defines cultural competency as “a set of congruent behaviors, attitudes, and policies that come together in a system, agency or among professionals that enables effective work in cross-cultural situations.” (OMH, 2005) In order to bridge the gap...

...Sheri Gualandi ECON111 Denise Stauthammer Biography November 9, 2014 Lower Gas Prices Possible Boost to the Economy The end of October 2014 brought with it lower gas prices for American consumers. It has been a very long time since gas prices have been below $3.00 per gallon at the pump and the benefits of the lower prices will help the American people from all walks of life ranging from people who live paycheck to paycheck, people on fixed incomes, and college students. The money saved from the lower gas prices will be an opportunity for people to spend more on things that may be considered little extras like dinner out, going to the movies, or taking in a concert. With the holiday months approaching, the extra money saved from not having to pay so much at the pump will allow for people to splurge and buy that special gift that they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to. While the lower gas prices are helping American consumers, the oil industry is taking a hit due to the lower crude prices. These lower crude prices are also helping industries such as farmers, trucking companies, railroads, and airlines. Prices at the grocery store as well as many other retailers will decline because they will also save money with lower fuel surcharges that tend to fluctuate with the cost for fuel. Lower crude prices will also help consumers save money on home heating costs this winter which will translate into more extra spending. More spending will help our economy rebound even more...

Lefty for a Day

...Lefty for a Day Amber Solis Chamberlain School of Nursing Lefty for a Day In this experiment of having to use my non-dominant hand over my dominant right hand I felt at a loss. A left handed person would be at an advantage in the same scenario when asked to use their right hand over their left hand because they are typically more ambidextrous than a right handed person. When attempting to do such simple task like writing this paper I had to adapt to changes like switching the mouse to a left handed mouse but because left handed people are typically able to use their right hand they usually do not even switch the mouse over. This is however only a temporary advantage because with time the right handers will learn to use their left hand as well. Although the title was “Let’s be Lefties for a Day” it actually showed more than that. The bigger problem with this experiment is that both the right handers and the left handers basically became disabled by losing a limb and became one handers in a two handed society. This thought of losing my dominant hand made me think about what would happen at my work place. Would I be protected somehow by the disability act or would I be at a loss? “The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, transportation, public accommodation, communications, and governmental activities.” (United States Department of Labor). Individuals adapt to disabilities and employers are...

Companies get sued every day for perceived violations. Businesses have been trying to hire a more diverse workforce. As healthcare professionals we work in one of the most diversified environment. As a nurse I have to take in people’s cultures and beliefs in mind. I have to be able to put myself in their place and understand where they are coming from. This week’s assignment was to put ourselves in the world of left handed individuals, this assignment was to show us how to be different from mainstay society. It was showed me how closely we are like the majority of society. I was required to place a sock with a golf ball in our right hand. This was to force me to use only my left hand. I couldn’t drop the golf ball nor get the sock wet. I unfortunately was an utter failure at this task. I didn’t last an hour before the golf ball was dropped. The world is not designed for left handed individuals. Unfortunately right handed people are the majority. Left handed people are being discriminated by which hand they use. Can openers, mounted pencil sharpeners, and fishing rods are all made for the right handed person. My husband is left handed. This week while purchasing a new set of golf clubs for our son, my husband also looked at a set for himself. The same set of clubs for a left handed person were twice......

This is my first semester in college I am working towards obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting. I decided to go back to school because I was working for a company that went out of business and I found that I needed to get a degree in order to keep doing what I love doing most and that is working in an accounting office. Going back in school has been challenging for me because it has been a long time since I have gone to school. It was pretty intimidating for me to go through the enrollment process, because I kept questioning whether I could cut it this late in life. I am presently unemployed because the company I was working for went out of business. I previously worked for a full service restoration company (construction). I started out working as the administrative assistant for the CFO and from there I moved onto other positions. The position I loved doing the most was in the accounting office and that is the reason I decided to go back to school and get a degree in accounting. The things I enjoy doing with my spare time are spending quality time with family, going fishing with my sister and brother in law on their boat, racquet ball, and volley ball. I also enjoy going out to eat and maybe catching a good movie on the weekends. I have not done a lot of traveling in my life. My family has always tried to take me with them when they go......
