THIS IS A MUST READ FOR MARRIED COUPLES (AN EYE OPENER) AND FOR THOSE WHO DESIRE TO MARRY.

When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I've got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn't know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly.

She didn't seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why? I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night we didn't talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to a lovely girl called Dew. I did not love her anymore. I just pitied her!
With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Dew so dearly.
Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me, her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now. The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn't have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Dew.
When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again. In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn't want…...

Do You Do Drugs

...anything else, too much of one thing is usually not good. I don’t really think it’s fair to compare caffeine to other illegal drugs because the negative impacts of caffeine are only prevalent if the user is taking in crazy amounts of it. Other drugs like heroin can cause lasting effects on somebody after one dose. Taking in high amounts of caffeine over a long period can cause bad results, but that’s why people need to learn self-control. My dad is a farmer and he drinks a cup of coffee in the morning and drinks a couple pops through the day. That’s way more caffeine then I take in during a regular day but I wouldn’t consider him addicted at all. He works long hours and sometimes needs that extra boost to get through the day. I do not think that we should tell children that caffeine is a drug simply because caffeine is in so many products that people enjoy. With that being said, I think we need to make sure kids limit their intake of caffeine. Children should not be drinking energy drinks because that’s more caffeine then they can handle and this is what is going to cause negative effects on them. I don’t think it’s a bad thing if a kid has a pop every once in a while but it should definitely be limited. I’m not going to be a teacher or coach but I think it’s us as adults that need to talk to kids about the dangers of caffeine. If they limit the amount they consume then there should not be a problem....

Maggie and Victor, a couple in their mid-fifties who were contemplating divorce after twenty-nine years of marriage, told me this story: "We met in graduate school," Maggie recalled. "We were renting rooms in a big house with a shared kitchen. I was cooking breakfast when I looked up and saw this man-Victor- walk into the room. I had the strangest reaction. My legs wanted to carry me to him, but my head was telling me to stay away. The feelings were so strong that I felt faint and had to sit down." Once Maggie recovered from shock, she introduced herself to Victor, and the two of them spent half the morning talking. "That was it," said Victor. "We were together every possible moment for the next two months, and then we eloped."

I've never felt so intensely about anyone in my entire life." Not all first......

I Want You

...I WANT YOU FOR THE U.S. ARMY!” Now, what would you do if someone were to ask you this? Or if you seen it out in town on a poster? Would you pay any attention to it or just walk on by? Most people would honestly just walk on by, unless, there was something in that particular poster that had caught their attention. Recruiting ads have changed over the years, but this one was popular. This particular recruiting advertisement was an effective argument because of their slogan, Uncle Sam, his stare, his point, and the use of America’s colors; red, white, and blue. I would say this particular recruiting image was for men or boys. Back then it were only the men or boys who could actually join the army. So, this poster excluded any women and girls because they were not allowed to join. The main targeted audience for this was for the younger men and boys, and for more than one reason. The younger they are, the more apt they are to be healthier. The army wants them to be younger because they can move more quickly and act upon things faster than someone who is older. They also want the men who don’t already have a family started because then they won’t have that worry while out in battle and can focus better on what they need to do. Where is the place where you see most advertisements for things? Out in town, right? This image was more than likely posted out in town on public buildings as well, that is where most of a town’s population goes for many different reasons. Having it out......

Gsa Wants You

...ASSIGNMENT 3: GSA Wants you BUS 330–Contract Administration and Management ASSIGNMENT 3: GSA Wants you BUS 330–Contract Administration and Management General Services Administration (GSA) is committed to providing innovative solutions to meet the needs of all Federal agencies through the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contracting vehicles and by so doing, foster effective, sustainable and transparent government for the American people. GSA offers consolidated contracting to negotiate better prices and reduce administrative costs for Government agencies purchasing goods and services through GSA schedules. GSA pre-negotiates prices and terms with Industry Partners and awards a contract under the MAS program. This type of contracting does not involve a sale to GSA, but creates an agreement where any participating Government agency may purchase the products or services covered by the contract according to the prices and terms specified, enabling Government agencies to make purchases faster and to leverage the buying power of the government. However, GSA MAS contracts will not be a good fit for every Industry Partner. In order to succeed as a GSA MAS contractor, you must be properly prepared and positioned for success. When doing business with GSA all responses to Schedules solicitations must be submitted electronically at eOffer/eMod. The purpose of eOffer/eMod is to create an interactive, secure electronic environment that simplifies the contracting process from submission...

Leadership Is the Art of Getting Others to Do Something You Want Done

...“Leadership is the art of getting others to do something you want done because they want to do it.” (Dwight D. Eisenhower). Whilst evaluating this statement, I’ll also question how it differs from management and why? Introducing this essay, it will be an evaluative text looking at key conceptual ideas into the quote stated above by the former United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower and how it differentiates from management. Addressing this matter, it can be seen that there are pros and cons into the statement “Leadership is the art of getting others to do something you want done because they want to do it.” Firstly, it can be suggested that people will follow leaders in a trustworthy sense meaning that they are willing to follow instructions as they feel credulous and have faith in the ambition and skills of their leader/manager. On the other hand, it appears that employees may feel pressured to act upon orders given from their leader/manager as they could see it as part of their job responsibilities essentially and are just following procedures given even if they may have an opposing opinion on the matter (I’ll be exploring this matter to a further extent in the first paragraph). From a personal point of view, interpreting the contrast between leadership and management can be difficult. For example, leadership is seen as more of a characteristic and/or a component of management and an effective way for managers to influence their employees in ways in which they feel......

Its What You Want

...humans for that matter, to play the role of God? I believe that death is a natural occurrence that is not something we can chose for another human being. Why should we kill someone who killed someone to show them that killing is a faulty comparison? It just seems for hypocritical to me to think that someone can say don’t do that, but then go on and do the same thing. There are alternatives to killing someone as a form of punishment and that is something that is a greater lesson to teach the criminal and have them live the rest of their life knowing what they did and the consequences for that crime. Some people, not all, have even been deemed innocent many years down the road when some real hard evidence proves their innocence. Now tell me if killing someone was worth it? To know that you didn’t believe an innocent man and put his life to death for something he never even did. This system also isn’t fair to everyone who gets the death penalty due to race and wealth as a factor. The best lawyers money can buy ensure that there are very few wealthy people on death row. It is merely capital punishment because if you can’t come up with the capital, then you get the punishment. “This is an immoral condition that makes rejecting the death penalty on moral grounds not only defensible but necessary for those who refuse to accept unequal or unjust administration of punishment (Top Ten Pros and Cons- Death Penalty, 2009).” Not Humane “Killing a person is not humane, even......

.... Do you think it is ethical for social networks to sell access user information to business for market research and other users? Why or why not ? 1.Spamming - Social Networking Sites can sell one's personal information to anyone who wants to buy it, including spammers and on line predators. Even if the terms of understanding claim that no personal information will be sold, the site can change its policy at any time. social networking sites like Myspace and Bebo are full of spam and scams! Many users receive emails nearly every day from anonymous users asking to date and chat on other websites. It continuously becomes frustrating to receive all these useless spam emails and no solution is being revised. Other Scam is an extra problem for the users. Unfortunately, some scammers trick members and scam them in so many ways to steal their accounts. A ordinary recognized trick could be through a phishing website which looks very similar to Facebook and fools people in believing that they are still on the official Facebook website. Once a member logs in using the email and password, scammers can now access his account and scam his friends, spreading further spam and malware through the website. Fake websites can also steal your bank information if consumers fall prey to their advertisements. If you have never come across a problem like this before, it is your responsibility to avoid such a threat and keep your information secure. 2.Privacy Issues - Endangerment to one's Privacy...

Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Verse 5 Reads.... Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.

I am looking forward to entering the professional program to learn in meticulous detail about many different medicines and their interactions on the human system; learning how to measure a medicines benefit and harm to the human system through pharmacology. I am also ecstatic on how I can use this newly gained knowledge in my personal life. My interest in becoming pharmacist will afford me the opportunity to use my knowledge on a local, state and possible federal level and stay current with the new medicines and technology in our health care system. It is extremely important to me to have a passion and zeal for whatever I challenge myself to do.

Garlic No surprise here. The stinking rose is one of the most potent weapons in preventing cancer, particularly colon cancer. Containing the photochemical allicin, garlic stimulates the production of cancer-fighting enzymes. Daily garlic consumption can lower total cholesterol and triglyceride levels by 10 percent and has the added benefit of keeping vampires at bay. 2.

It can be used as an appetite stimulant, and a treatment for nausea, whether legit (flu) or not-so-legit (hangover). 3.
