Tammy Crabtree and Sons Story

Poverty today is becoming a big issue in our society. The people most affected by poverty are children. This story is about Tammy Crabtree and her children. She has four children; they live in a small town in Ohio. She has been on welfare for eighteen years and now works at the local Burger King where she walks ten and a half miles from her home to get to work. Tammy’s son feels embarrassed by his family. He is ashamed of his circumstances. This young man is similar to a character portrayed in the 1943 movie “Imitation of Life”. In that movie there was a black lady who was a maid for a rich lady. The rich lady had a daughter as did the maid, but the maid’s daughter was ashamed of her mother because she was black. So the maid’s daughter left her mother, changed her name and assumed life as though she was white.

Tammy stated that she could not help being poor, because her father was poor and raised twenty-two children. Tammy’s statement about being poor afforded her only so much leverage and should not be used as a crutch as many people in the same or worse situation have been able to do anything that we they put their minds to do. If a person will persevere, and have the will to be removed from their comfort zone then it is possible to achieve a better life. Someone has to break the cycle of negative re-enforcements life for that family. For example, my brother, sister, and I ended up in foster care with me being the oldest. I knew that I wanted more in life and if I ever had kids I did not want them to be in the system where they would have to depend on the government for their livelihood. I made it my goal not to have children before I got married. I was very aware that things happen in life and…...

...Personal Narrative There are many values in my life that are very important to me. My values that I carry with me all the time day and night originated from my family, friends, and teachers that are important in my life. The people that have influenced me and taught me most of my values is my family. My family is the people that have been there with me through the “good” and “bad”. They are the people who taught me the “dos” and “don’ts” in life. My parents are the ones who made me who I am today. By being there everyday of my life my family has taught me the meaning of loyalty, I’m a smart, loving, caring, trustworthy, hardworking, and successful because my parents helped guide me in the right direction. They will be there to support me until the very end. I don’t know what I would do without my family. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be the person I’m today. My family has taught me never to give up and to keep going even when times get rough. They have instilled in me to reach my goals and strive for the best. I will reach my goals in life to the best of my potential. With this in mind, I go to school everyday to reach my short-term goal of graduating with honors and start my next goal of becoming a sophomore in college. My family has taught me everything that I believe in such as religion and working hard for what you want. When I got to school I get taught many things from my teachers, which helps me become a more well rounded and educated person. My friends...

The Enga Culture

... The Enga Culture Sheila Hummings Introduction to Cultural Anthropology Instructor Tristan Marble March 25, 2013 The Enga Culture is considered to be diverse in their community. Enga is one of the provinces located in Papua, New Guinea. The population of the Enga community range from 6000 to 9000 people. For years the Enga culture has been diversed in their beliefs, values , gender and kinship relationships. This culture primary source of survival is through horticulture. They use the sweet potato as the most important crop. Sweet potatoes make up more than 60 percent of all production. The fields where the potatoes are grown are made up of mounds. These mounds can be up to 9 feet in diameter. Most of the soil is soft, which makes it easy for planting. After they have completed gathering their harvest, they rebuild the mounds. They pull the mounds apart and mulch with old potatoes and leaves. Enga also grow bananas and yam swiddens. Swidden cultivation occurs when the land is cleared and cultivated for a temporary timeframe. They also are pig raisers. Enga’s do very little hunting or foraging. In this culture the women performed most of the labor. They did most of the planting, weeding and harvesting activities. The men’s responsibilities were to clear and burn the land in the swidden cultivation process. The men were better able to perform these duties because of their physical strength. The division of sexual labor came from foraging societies. The foragers......

...him what he should do. Husbands should respect their wives but can beat them for any wrong doing, especially in case of public disrespect. Fathers have little contact with the young children. Older children were to have respect for their fathers; any interaction with them is formal. Therefore, in the Nandi community, father to child relationship was important although it was neither warm nor close. (Oboler) Kinship The kinship for used by the Nandi is the Omaha type. This is usually common in the patrilineal societies: they use the term father to refer to all men of the same generation, sibling for the patrinieal relatives of a person’s generation and they refer to one’s mother of the patrineal kinsmen by a single term. The Nandi’s value their relationships with the in-laws other than their blood relations, hence they have a variety of terms they use when referring to their relatives by marriage. After marriage, the bride moves in to the husbands’ family; hence the marital residence is patrilocal. (Oboler) It is crucial to not that Nandi communities are not based on kinship. A Nandi family can move out to any community and, they will be welcomed by their relatives, in-laws, age-mates, or any other people. The most important unity in the past among the Nandi was the local community. This local community is referred to as Koret and is made up of a large number of people living around each other. This community was then headed by the council of elders refers to as......

Cutural Diversity

...beneficial would be, a decrease in cost in matters of rehiring which does affect the organizations budget, organizations that value diversity will become the “company of choice” to work for, thus leading to higher job satisfaction with the ability to recruit and retain employees from diverse groups, ability to market their business without increasing cost, bringing creativity and problem solving experiences from different groups into the organization, and finally the flexibility of having individuals that bring bicultural and bi-linguistic talents to the workforce (Bell, 2007). Organizations that embrace diversity gain competitive advantage amongst organizations that do not. In order for organizations to be successful culturally diverse entities, they have to educate their managers who are the front line operators, on becoming culturally competent. The emphasis on continuous educational programs that embrace diversity should be mandated. According to Hood, (2010) attainment of cultural competence is an ongoing process that requires the elimination of ethnocentrism (belief that one’s culture is better than anyone else’s) and unconditionally accepting cultural diversity, unless the outcome towards an individual will yield negative (p. 277). The first step for professionals to gain cultural competence is for these individuals to examine their own “personal values, beliefs, biases and prejudices” (Hood, 2010, p.280). Prejudice is a rigid, negative attitude presented towards a......

...Creating Shared Value. (Michael E. Porter & Mark R. Kramer) * What is your reaction to this article? Critically evaluate its content based on your personal and professional experiences and any additional research you might like to do. The article starts with a description of the cynicism surrounding capitalism and management, and also some of the reasons for such cynicism. My life’s first attitude towards capitalism and management was also marked by distrust and skepticism. I grew up in a small town that is surrounded by big factories that manufactured products such as steel, cement, flour and so on. Our town was victim of companies’ strategy to relocate their production plants where labor was cheaper. Article provides three concrete steps that management can take to achieving what they have dubbed as Shared Value, which is an attempt to meld together societal and economic progress, so that it creates societal value for the community in terms of making relevant contributions to their social realities, but not at the expense of economic value to the business. The three steps are as follows: 1) Reconceiving products and markets; 2) Redefining productivity in the value chain; and 3) Enabling local cluster development. In brief, reconceiving products and markets entails meeting needs in often underserved markets through redesigning products and/or distribution methods. The authors cite microfinance as an...

Consumption in a Cutural Context

...while another might buy the same box because of the prestigious brand name. Consumer behavior around Christmas is strongly influenced by peoples’ focus on giving and receiving gifts. For some it is a time to be with family and friends, be kind and caring to others, while the other view Christmas as a celebration of money and consumerism. The actions that one person needs to take (instrumental values) to achieve his or hers desired end states (terminal values) differ from another person’s actions. People differ in the values they endorse based on their age, culture, beliefs, etc. As a result, consumers have specific product preferences and show differences in media usage. For example, people who value love and happiness (terminal values) may volunteer during Christmas to help needy, take part in community service, or simply perform small acts of kindness for others (instrumental values). Another example would be when people buy expensive gifts for others at Christmas as a way of feeling gratified and appreciated (instrumental values), but ultimately seek social recognition (terminal value). Now, let’s examine some of the situational aspects and their affect on consumer behavior at Christmas. “Making a purchase is often not a simple or easy matter where you just drop by any store and make a quick choice. Different contextual factors, like mood, whether we feel rushed to make the purchase (by somebody else or lack of time), and the particular reason we need the product,......

Ethical values and ramifications – One of the best guidelines, the Army values would be where I would start with this. Although not all of these are incorporated in this exercise, Loyalty , Duty, and Integrity clearly are. The Loyalty is shown when SGT Day decides to cover up for SFC Sharp. Duty is displayed when it comes down to the question of reporting this situation because it is my obligation. Integrity is shown when it comes to doing whats right no matter what situation I am faced with and ensuring the decision is morally correct. Consider moral principles – The decision I go with will place me in the position to accept any consequences that may occur. Loyalty in this case, can go either way, as in a lot of cases are you loyal to a individual or a unit. What damage can reporting this incident cause on SFC Sharps career and promotable status. This case also puts a hinder on SGT Day's stand in the Army values that we live by daily. What type of leader is SGT Day.

The Enga people are considered to be horticultural. Like many other highland Papua New Guineans living west of the Daula pass, the traditional Engan settlement style is that of scattered homesteads dispersed throughout the landscape. To better understand the way Engan cultures live, we will explore their beliefs and values, kinship organization, and political organization. II. Beliefs And Values A. The Enga believed the moon to be the mother and the sun to be the father. They believed that the moon and the sun created immortal sky people. B. Rituals were very important to the Enga people. Magic was considered useful, as was sorcery and ancestor worship was normal. III. Kinship A. All Mae belong to named localized patricians which ideally are exogamous. There are no villages, and people live in homesteads scattered about the compact clan territories. B. Men and women occupy separate houses. Clan land is inherited patrilineally.
