Author White’s writings also serve as a Biblical interpretative aide in the 21st Century Seventh-day Adventist denomination. Those of her books most taken advantage of for biblical interpretations are the Seventh Day Adventist Bible Commentary, Patriarchs and Prophets, Prophets and Kings, Acts of the Apostles, The Desire of Ages, the Great Controversy and Steps to Christ. While the Bible is of it's self, self-interpretive, Author White’s writing is only or should only be used as an aide. Her writing should not be used to substitute the need for the illumination of the Holy Spirit, or to eliminate individual exegesis of the scripture under consideration. Author White’s writings are use by various categories of people for various reasons. Pastors and scholars used her writings for additional enlightenment; church members use them because they provide good readings for Christian growth, and even her critics read her writings in order to discredit her. Lastly, there are those who use it just to prove a point. For example in 2001when the USA experienced the 911 terrorist attack, a lot of non Seventh-day Adventist started to purchase her writings hoping to find the reason and interpretation of the madness that had just transpired. The reasons these book are considered beneficial for biblical interpretation is because her writings have proved to be inline with the Bible, her predictions come to past and her ethos/character complements her work and ministry. The Seventh-day Adventist Bible Commentary gives text-by-text, and topical explanation/interpretation. However, before one turns to her Bible commentary, one should first spend time in wrestling prayer to receive spiritual enlightenment from the Holy Spirit. After that her writing is used as confirmation and further enlightenment. The book Patriarchs and Prophets basically covers every…...

O'Regan ⁎ NYU, Wagner Graduate School and Furman Center, NY, United States a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t This paper examines whether the economic gains experienced by low-income neighborhoods in the 1990s followed patterns of classic gentrification (as frequently assumed) — that is, through the in migration of higher income white, households, and out migration (or displacement) of the original lower income, usually minority residents, spurring racial transition in the process. Using the internal Census version of the American Housing Survey, we find no evidence of heightened displacement, even among the most vulnerable, original residents. While the entrance of higher income homeowners was an important source of income gains, so too was the selective exit of lower income homeowners. Original residents also experienced differential gains in income and reported greater increases in their satisfaction with their neighborhood than found in other lowincome neighborhoods. Finally, gaining neighborhoods were able to avoid the losses of white households that non-gaining low income tracts experienced, and were thereby more racially stable rather than less. © 2011......

...Ellen Moore Living And Working In Korea Management Essay In recent years, globalization has accelerated the emergence of many global companies that operate across geographical borders and require high levels of cross-national interdependence and cross-border flow of products, technology, capital and people. Businesses are expanding internationally through alliances and joint ventures, as well as mergers and acquisitions. This driving force has resulted in a growing number of people seeking international careers outside of their home countries. Ellen Moore, an experienced systems consultant who worked for Systems Consulting Group (SCG), a unit of Western Systems Inc. (WSI), was sent to Korea to manage a project involving a team of North American and Korean consultants. WSI newly entered the Korean market in 1990 through forming a joint venture (JVI) with Korean Conglomerate Inc. (KCI). Ellen was selected based on her strong background in project management, her creativity and technical abilities. She also had successful international experience working in Bahrain before, which may be helpful to her journey working in Korea, a new different foreign country. Ellen Moore- the international manager For Ellen, an expatriate manager who has limited knowledge of Korea and did not obtain any training from SCG prior to her arrival in Korea, living in Korea produced constant and unexpected challenges to the ways of perceiving, acting and valuing things, making it difficult for her to...

Mary Ellen Mark-a Photographer

...Through her expressive photographs, Mary Ellen Mark takes us on a journey without barriers into the lives not often seen of others. My main focus in this paper is to analyze Mary Ellen Mark’s social documentation through the connotative and denotative aspects of her photographs, which capture a scene but say a thousand words. A humanization to all her photographs, which is a true gift of Mark’s and is a style that seems to be disappearing today. I have always been in “aw” of Mary Ellen Mark” since I was 12 years old. I wanted to travel around the world and capture life in a different perspective. She was my inspiration on many photographs I have taken in my life. When I was 14, I was living in another country and joined my first photography group. I used Marks inspiration to photograph poverty, war, and to capture portraits of lives not seen by others. At 15, I was given my own exhibit and I was able to show others photographs that said a thousand words. It was a success and after that moment I knew what path I wanted to take in my life. Mary Ellen Mark has a very distinct style, typically narrating the lives of people that are in extremely heartbreaking situations, such as physical abuse, prostitution, poverty, and drug addiction. Marks ability to capture the brutal honesty of her subjects is extremely unique to her style of photography. She blasts through the scarred walls of her subjects and exhibits their raw vulnerability leaving no room for sentiment.......

...JOHN CHAPTER 2(NKJV,NIV,NEW AMERICAN BIBLE) The next day Jesus' mother was a guest at a wedding celebration in the village of Cana in Galilee. 2 Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. 3 The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus' mother spoke to him about the problem. "They have no more wine," she told him. 4 "How does that concern you and me?" Jesus asked. "My time has not yet come." 5 But his mother told the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." 6 Six stone water pots were standing there; they were used for Jewish ceremonial purposes and held twenty to thirty gallons each. 7 Jesus told the servants "Fill the jars with water." When the jars had been filled to the brim, 8 he said "Dip some out and take it to the master of ceremonies." So they followed his instructions. 9 When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over. 10 "Usually a host serves the best wine first," he said. "Then, when everyone is full and doesn't care, he brings out the less expensive wines. But you have kept the best until now!" 11 This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was Jesus' first display of his glory. And his disciples believed in him. 12 After the wedding he went to Capernaum for a few days with his mother, his brothers, and his disciples. 13 It was time for the annual Passover celebration, and Jesus went to Jerusalem.(NKJV) In the temple...

Summary of Education Book by Ellen G White

...Summary Education is needed in the life of the people of God. True education means more than a preparation for life that is now. It has to with the whole being and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, mental, and spiritual powers. The world has many great teacher but God stands higher than them which is the real soiuce of knowledge. The holy scriptures are perfect standard of truth and should be given the highest place in education. He who desire to reach God’s ideal will presents education as high as the heaven and as broad as the universe, an education that can’t be completed in this life but will continue for the life to come. In Eden, personally directed the education of His children. Often they were visited by His messengers, the holy angels, and from them received counsel and instruction. The Garden of Eden was a representation of what God desired the whole earth to become, and it was His purpose that, as the human family increased in numbers, they should establish other homes and schools like the one He had given. The book also talked about how the human’s first parents fell into sin by their power of choice – the power to yield or to withhold obedience. There was a tree of knowledge of good and evil. While God was seeking man’s good, satan was seeking his ruin. When Eve, disregarding the Lord admonition concerning the forbidden tree, ventured to approach it, she came in contact with her foe.

Los Serafines En Las Ecrituras Y de Elena G. de White

...pronunciar alabanzas a Dios sin cesar . El texto Bíblico no nos dice cuantos serafines se encontraban en el trono. Quizás habían dos líneas, una a cada lado del trono, pero de esto no podemos estar seguro. Tampoco sabemos si los serafines se encontraban en grupos o en coros. Es probablemente seguro decir que su canto era antifonal, porque los serafines clamaban dialogadamente unos a los otros, como si es que se declaraban a ellos mismos que el Señor es Santo. El hecho que Isaías podía distinguir lo que entonaban es decir que clamaban en voz humana audible para el “Santo, santo, santo”, como lo usan aquí, (qadosh en hebreo), nos da a entender la totalidad de la perfección divina cual separa a Dios de Su creaciones. Elena G. De White nos dice que el mismo Satanás fue un serafín. Que alto cargo y honor fue encomendado a Lucifer cuando estaba en el cielo. Para ser serafin y renunciar lo todo que “ Satanás parece paralizado al contemplar la gloria y majestad de Cristo. El que en otro tiempo fuera uno de los querubines cubridores recuerda de dónde cayó. El, que fuera serafín resplandeciente, "hijo de la aurora," ¡cuán cambiado se ve, y cuán degradado! Está excluido para siempre del consejo en que antes se le honraba. Ve ahora a otro que, junto al Padre, vela su gloria. Ha visto la corona colocada sobre la cabeza de Cristo por un ángel de elevada estatura y majestuoso continente, y sabe que la posición exaltada que ocupa este ángel habría podido ser la suya...

...1. CQ: Is what happened to Ellen a surprise? Why or why not? Do you think what happened to Ellen would have happened to people like yourself, and from your background? Why? It is a surprise what happened to Ellen. Although she is from a country with different culture from Korea, Ellen is a high quality professional with international experience. She had put a lot of effort to adapt to Korea culture and know how to do business at that country. She took every free time to learn and be familiarized with the local language, business etiquette, mannerism and culture in order to have a better environment to work at. Therefore, even coming from a very different culture, Ellen made a big effort to behave as close as possible to her colleagues from Korea. What happened to Ellen would probably happen to any other person even with the members from our group. Despite some similarity of the culture style between Brazil and South Korea ,it looks like her co-worker Jack didn’t recognize Ellen’s as a co-responsible for the work, so from this point of view anyone in her place could have the same problem. What might help in this situation is if it was a man in Ellen’s shoes as Korean’s culture is more male oriented. But it is not clear that Jack would react better even with a man, as Jack had studied at an American university and it would be expected that he would understand the situation of working together with an woman co-worker. 2. CQ: Is Ellen a “typical North American female......

Ellen's advantage why she was elected for this position was her experience in project management and her international experience from work in Bahrein. As Ellen arrived in Korea, she takes every possibility to learn language and to understand local culture, lifestyle and values and soon she realized that there are remarkable differences from Western countries in the everyday live and also business environment, mainly based on historical evolution and impact of Confucianism which properties were affecting and reflecting in social and work environment: Complete loyalty to structure Duty to parents expressed in loyalty, love and gratitude Very strict rules of conduct (parents / children; old / young; male  / female ; teacher / student) In Western countries good manager and leader has  to express positive emotions public and some negative remarks are prefered to announce in private in order not to reduce person's public confidence.

Three faces to wear One after the other For the three men in my life.     When my Brother comes make me one opposite If he is a devil, a saint With a staff to his fork And for his horns, a crown. I hope for my contrast To make nil Our old resemblance to each other and my twin will walk me out Without a frown Pretending I am another.     When my Father comes Make me one so like His child once eating his white bread in trance Philomela* before she was raped.

Love and loyalty are the spring of all true service. Poverty, affliction, and ignorance should not be regarded as misfortune rather as affording precious opportunity for service. It is acquaintance that awakens sympathy, and sympathy is the spring of effective ministry. All who engage in ministry are God’s helping hand and are co-workers with the angels. “With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Savior might be carried to the whole world”.

...Study Habits and Its Effect on Students Academic Achievement A Research Paper Presented to The Faculty of the English Department College of Business Adventist University of the Philippines Silang, Cavite In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Course Communication Arts 2 Raddison Brian Dorado March 8, 2016 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Research has concluded that it’s not how smart students are but how motivated they are and how they study that determines their growth in academic achievement (Society for Research in Child Development, 2012.) According to Kou Murayama (2012), while intelligence as assessed by IQ tests is important in the early stages of developing mathematical competence, motivation and study habits play a more important role in student’s subsequent growth. A student who does not have good study habits cannot do well in class recitation, daily quizzes, and actual pupil demonstration since he/she did not study and review the lessons learned. Good study habits are the tools to success (Losare, 2009). Losare (2009) also stated that nowadays, many children are engaged in computer games, cutting classes, watching television, excessive playing, and, worst of all, are involved in vices such as illegal drugs, gambling, and crimes. Others also use their intelligence in foolishness and bad deeds. They should be able to balance and manage their time wisely. A recent survey showed that nearly 40% of parents say high school is stressful......

...Ellen Degeneres Vahchai Thompson Columbus Technical College Principals of Management Jacqueline Harris July 9, 2016 Abstract Ellen DeGeneres said it best, “The world is full of a lot of fear and a lot of negativity, and a lot of judgment. I just think people need to start shifting into joy and happiness. As corny as it sounds, we need to make a shift.” ("Ellen Quotes," n.d, para. 1). This means that if people spent more time doing things that pleased versus judging people out of fear and about things they do not understand nor agree with the world would be a better place. Ellen a native of Louisiana never would have thought that her standup comedy would lead to her being one of the top female talk show hosts in the world. She has overcome many adversities in her career from coming out publicly as a lesbian, gender stereotypes, and for being an activist in the LGBTQ community. Through it all she has always kept her quirky sense of humor and her tomboyish style.  Ellen Degeneres During her interview with Oprah, Ellen described her coming out story she went on to say, “I think I've told you about a dream I had. I was struggling with the idea of coming out—what it would do to my career and to me—and in this dream, I was holding a tiny finch in the palm of my hand. I could feel how much I loved this bird and that it was safe in my hand, and I was reaching in to put it back in its cage—one of these thin, bamboo, beautiful, multitiered cages—and as I was putting the......

There is an unclear hierarchical reporting structure within the project team, making it impossible for  the project to continue and limits communication and knowledge transfer. The main problem that the Systems Consulting Group faces is that they need to complete their consulting project that they are behind schedule on, and need to choose a course of action quickly. 2. Identify underlying causes to the problem at hand There are many problems that are halting the progress of the project. The team is clearly suffering from lack of communication, disorganized team structure, unclear leadership and constant disagreement over the decision-making process. Business: The Korean structure appears to be hierarchical which seems to impact the understanding of relationships between consultants and clients of both the Americans and Koreans. Management: In Korea, respect for position and status influences how a project is executed. It is evident that power authority is undefined. Jack and Ellen don’t have a specific role, so there is an overlapping of power. As a result, subordinates are often confused and find it a bit hard to follow the lead of their superiors. There seems to be a lack of trust between Ellen and Jack......
