Route to L’Oreal
The title of a talk I attended is ‘Route to L’Oreal’ which was held on 6th June 20 at the auditorium of INTI College Subang Jaya. There were about 100 people who participated as art of the audience. A lady walked on the stage at 2pm and introduced herself as the spokesperson of L’Oreal, hence the talk began.
There are a few things I like about this talk such as that it started punctually so that the event flowed according to schedule and no time was wasted. Our spokesperson, Miss Sharifah Atikah, a representative of L’Oreal, introduced herself clearly and spoke in a friendly manner. She encouraged the audience to move towards the front seats of the auditorium for the allowance of a two-way interaction throughout the talk. She allowed the listeners to ask questions or comment on the things she shared. She also gave out ‘goodie packs’ with well-known products of L’Oreal’s in it for good questions and if participants were able to answer her questions. She had natural charisma, a good manner of engaging the audience and retaining the attention of her listeners.
She introduced the company’s achievements and history as the introduction. The PowerPoint slides were done neatly; the message and important points were highlighted and therefore, successfully conveyed. A point that caught my attention was when Miss Sharifah spoke about their products which were responsibly innovated, are of high quality and that they were environmental friendly. I was also caught on to how L’Oreal is committed to all its customers, and goes by the vision that everyone is fairly important and everyone deserves beauty.
Besides that, she played several videos which were somewhat evidence of L’Oreal’s employee training programs so that we could see how the employees are recruited, the process of theirrecruitment, and how the working lifestyle is like under L’Oreal. I was much in…...

...Building a career plan is difficult, if people have no clue what career field interest them, what is the person strength and weaknesses, and if the person posse the passion for a certain career. Working on my competencies section, I have identified my strengths. If I have to categorize myself with the results, I will say my top three is adapting to change, strategizing, and innovating. To be a high-quality manager or a leader, they must be willing to accept changes. Since, not all work environments are the same. Adjusting to change will make a person realize what works and what does not work. At the same time strategizing and innovative is critical to managers. For a company to raise profit or cut spending, it requires strategizing because without a road map a person may not be able to find the final destination. An innovative person who thinks outside the box usually performs at a higher level. Creative and innovative thinkers stand out in front of their peers and will be successful in their careers. Conducting the exercise, I understand how competencies relate to one another and identify my strength and weakness. If I change my communication techniques to be an effective communicator, I will ensure to disseminate information at the lowest level and use back brief technique. This will mitigate miscommunication among the staff and I will use this technique to check on my staff. To complete assigned task in a timely manner, I will need to ensure that my staff understands...

...1. ADORA SVITAK Talk: Main Points Being childish, and irrational thinkers may be just what the world needs. Kids are not hampered by reasons NOT to do something. Kids dream big and dream about perfection. Kids do not think about the limitations on what they can or cannot do. Kids think of good ideas. Kids and adults should learn from each other, it should be reciprocal teaching. Kids have a lot to share. The things that were most important to me from listening to Adora Svitak is that Adults should take children’s wishes into account. Adults underestimate children, and in a lot of ways can intentionally or unintentionally limit a child’s creativity. Adults should put their fear aside and be receptive to learning from children. 2. ALISON GOPNIK: What do Babies Think? Main Points Babies are like sponges, and learn things as they grow. Babies learn things in short periods of time, and what they learn builds on what they learned before. Babies are very good at taking in lots of information from lots of different sources at once. They have a lantern of consciousness. What was most interesting to me is that Gopnik seemed to be saying that adults should become more like babies and begin to have more of a stream of consciousness because babies are not inhibited in their learning or thoughts; adults are, and the inhibitory parts of adults keep us from being creative, imaginative, and seeing the world differently. 3. SUGATA MITRA: Main Points If you give children......

It’s a free world of free knowledge for everyone who wants to know more about a certain topic or wants to share and engage in discussion with others with similar interests. The website is well organized in terms of layout and intuitiveness. The topics covered were of interest to me and anyone interested in science-technology will surely find them exciting. Also there are so many other topics including global issues, humanities, arts, etc. The topic on the page which I visited “http://www.ted.com/talks/andrew_blum_what_is_the_internet_really.html” was very interesting. The author put everything in the right perspective and overall it was very informational and easy to follow. The best feature of this website is that it has the videos for approximately 18 minutes, not too long to get boring, nor too short. It was enough time to express the complete idea and let the audience grasp it. Also there are several other features which are pretty basic and common with some of the other video-collection websites, for e.g. comments section for readers and links to share the video on Facebook, twitter, etc. We can also embed the link in our own literature or download the video itself.

...Compiled Talks of Swami Vivekananda KARMA IN ITS EFFECT ON CHARACTER The word Karma is derived from the Sanskrit Kri, to do; all action is Karma. Technically, this word also means the effects of actions. In connection with metaphysics, it sometimes means the effects, of which our past actions were the causes. But in Karma-Yoga we have simply to do with the word Karma as meaning work. The goal of mankind is knowledge. That is the one ideal placed before us by Eastern philosophy. Pleasure is not the goal of man, but knowledge. Pleasure and happiness come to an end. It is a mistake to suppose that pleasure is the goal. The cause of all the miseries we have in the world is that men foolishly think pleasure to be the ideal to strive for. After a time man finds that it is not happiness, but knowledge, towards which he is going, and that both pleasure and pain are great teachers, and that he learns as much from evil as from good. As pleasure and pain pass before his soul they have upon it different pictures, and the result of these combined impressions is what is called man's "character". If you take the character of any man, it really is but the aggregate of tendencies, the sum total of the bent of his mind; you will find that misery and happiness are equal factors in the formation of that character. Good and evil have an equal share in moulding character, and in some instances misery is a greater teacher than happiness. In studying the great characters the world has produced, I......

...* Jonathan Haidt: The moral roots of liberals and conservatives In the first video Salvador Dali is used as an example of an artist who had an open mind. Although this was true, he was not clearly a "liberal" by Haidt's definition. I found it an interesting talk on the differences between liberals and conservatives in terms of importance of the 5 key values. One thing that stood out for me is the supposed rejection of authority by liberals as conservatives tend to crave authority not only for authority's sake, but so as to limit the authority they crave for their use against others. Nonetheless, there were many interesting ideas speculated in a brief lecture. * Greg Asner: Ecology from the air I love what was shown on the second video. Very interesting talk and very much informative.  This talk about mapping the planet for information research on forests and structure date in a geographic context has the power to completely change our understanding of the ecosystems. Of course that will only be if the technology of the CAO is utilized to save what we have left. I think the talk could encourage everyone, including business crowd to realize the importance of preserving natural resources for the well-being of every specie and to sustain the cycle of life. * Sebastiao Salgado: The silent drama of photography I find this video as well as Sebastiao's photography to be highly inspirational.

He explains how it may seem weird to others, of course following people, but he finds something interesting like a pair of shoes takes a picture and runs with the creative design. He talks about how he sees colors from a movie and an idea pops into his mind where he finds a vison for a clothing design and creates it. Another stage of his creativity is very common among most creators; he includes how he stays awake at night with an idea and thinks and thinks on how to create something extraordinary.

Healthcare IT is the use of computer and digital technology in medical facilities to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical healthcare for patients and providers. Healthcare IT can include but is not limited to electronic coding and billing systems, electronic medical records (EMR1), and networks for digital imaging such as PACS2. How to Break Into the Health IT Field: So how do you get into this exciting field? Shawn Riley successfully made a career transition into Healthcare IT, from a general, non-medical IT career at IBM. He is a former Chief Technology Officer over two large medical facilities, and the current CEO of HealthTechnica.com, a website for healthcare IT professionals. According to Mr. Riley, there are primarily two ways to break into healthcare IT. One way is from the clinical side, (a clinician who moves into a health IT role) and the other is from the IT side (an IT professional, without healthcare experience, who makes the transition into a healthcare IT role.) Transition from Clinician to Healthcare IT Professional: According to Riley, this is the easier of the two paths into a Health IT career, because clinical knowledge is very valuable in the Health IT field. Clinicians who transfer into health IT may come from a background as a......

...due to them being victims of abuse or neglect because agencies haven’t worked together because they expected other agencies to take care of the individual’s situation. Therefore it is important that agencies work together so that they can prevent deaths from occurring with vulnerable adults that aren’t being noticed. The government have a guidance paper called ‘No Secrets’, which explains how agencies should be working together to provide the best care for vulnerable adults. Working in partnership with adults using services, families and informal carers If professionals are working in partnership, this gives the service users a sense of trust and empowerment. If they feel like they can trust the service provider they are more likely to talk about their fears, anxieties and maybe even abuse that they are experiencing or past abuse they have experienced. Partnership working may encourage individuals to feel positively about their self-esteem, self-confidence and to speak out when they are victims of abuse, rather than not understanding and letting it happen. This also ensures that the adult’s situation isn’t just between themselves and the professional, but their families and informal carers are able to understand their situation better as well as monitoring how the individual is progressing. When working in partnership, there are so many different individuals that can be involved which reduces the risk of the vulnerable individual being abused, offering them protection......

Imagine your relationship based off that philosophy and how much better it might be. Couples speak to each other all the time, but how often do they truly communicate? What is communication to you? I am sure that you are one of those couples who think hey, we talk all the time so there’s no communication problems with our relationship, but think about it, what do you say when you think you are communicating? Do you talk about what needs done when and how, or do you talk about each other to each other? Who is doing the talking and who is doing the listening, are you both talking and listening? What you have to say to each other is so much more important than how often you say anything at all to them. How can you say you love someone, if you don’t even know who he or she is? Communicating with your partner goes deeper than just talking about your day, although it is a start. In order to keep your relationship healthy and strong you both have to take the time to see who each other truly are, and what you both truly want or need. Before reading the article Can We Talk, I knew that communication was important, and I knew what communication was. What I did not realize was that maybe all this time my partner and I have not been communicating effectively like we thought. When I sit back and think......

Clasiffication Talk

...CLASSIFICATION TALK Background When a lawyer named Paul Harris, a coal dealer, a mining engineer and a merchant tailor first met in 1905 in Chicago, they gave birth to Rotary and by the nature of their diverse occupations, to the association’s most distinctive feature – the classification principle. Today, the classification principle, though modified, remains a cornerstone of Rotary. Upon joining Rotary, you are lent a classification by the Board of Directors to reflect your occupation or primary source of income. By limiting active membership by classifications, each club becomes a cross-section of the business and professional life of the community it serves. Also, the classification principle makes sure that no one profession or business becomes the dominant force within the club. Another benefit of the classification system is that representatives of many fields are brought together, providing the opportunity for Rotarians to broaden their knowledge of the contemporary workplace. This, in turn, enables Rotarians to fulfill one of the basic obligations of vocational service – recognizing the worthiness to society of all useful occupations. Personal Data: Name: Luis Angelo D.
