Great Kids In No Time

Studies show that children whose fathers are "highly involved" in their kids' schooling--who attend "Back-to-School Night" or man the three-legged-race station at field day--earn more A's. Better still, "highly involved" is defined as only three or four of these appearances a year.

"Teachers communicate more with parents if they've met them in person," says Maureen Black, Ph.D., professor of pediatrics at the University of Maryland medical school. In other words, build relationships with the teachers, and your children won't get away with anything.

Planning tip: Since the school calendar is set by Labor Day, ink in the year's events as soon as you can so there won't be conflicts later.

If you're running late and the kid comes in while you're shaving, don't tell him to beat it. Instead, "Hoist him on the sink, let him help you lather, and answer his questions--he'll have lots of them," says Robert Frank, Ph.D., author of Parenting Partners.

Answering them all is impossible--we have no idea why that glob of shaving cream looks like Uncle Bobby--but any man can give a kid 5 or 10 minutes.

The payoff: Spontaneous chats bond kids to their dads in ways planned activities can't, Frank says.

Don't waste the nightly 20-minute drive to tae kwon do classes listening to stock reports. Instead, just listen. Frank says paying attention to what your kids are saying now makes it more likely they'll listen to you later.

Trouble getting through to your teen? Take your kid's friends along. Teen-agers are more forthcoming with their peers' parents, Frank says. So you're more likely to hear about a bully or a bad teacher from your boy's buddy than from him.

Research shows that a dad's less-fearful approach to parenting--letting the kids climb…...

Life Goes on

...You are here: Home > Insurance sector faces fresh threats Insurance sector faces fresh threats October 1, 2011 in Business The sector has also been a victim of subdued premium growth. Thirty licensed short-term insurance companies in the sector are chasing a paltry US$150 million in annual premiums. This represents an average gross income of US$5 million for each player. After reinsurance costs, this hardly leaves enough income for administration, claims dividends and receiving costs. Zimbabwe’s insurance industry currently comprises 76 players — 30 short-term insurers, five life assurers, eight short-term reinsurers, six funeral assurers, two life reinsurers and 25 insurance brokers. Only one out of 27 short-term insurers is publicly quoted and only five are credit-rated. Competition has increased among players, with most opting for sub-economic premiums to attract business, leading to poor underwriting, a development market experts say could see more insurance companies folding or merging with bigger companies who can underwrite meaningful business. Baobab Reinsurance manager Tarupiwa Tarupiwa said if no immediate measures were taken to bring order and sanity into the sector, once considered one of the largest on the continent, it would collapse again. “An accumulation of cases of the same means you will not have an idea of a sufficient pool from which to pay claims. “The concept of an insurance pool where the sum of premiums of many is used to pay claims......

...strong is the prevailing relationship between the individual and the collective in a given culture, are people more self-interested, or interested in the well-being of the team. Individualistic cultures exhibit more self-centered tendencies and place an emphasis on individual goals. Individualistic cultures emphasize job success andachievement or wealth and career advancement. 4)个人主义与集体主义: “的程度,个人都集成​​到组”。 在个人主义文化中,人们往往认为自己是其他人的个人独特的。 当时在特定的文化之间的个人和集体的关系有多强,人们更多的自身利益,或感兴趣的球队的福祉。 个人主义的文化表现出更多的以自我为中心的倾向,并把重点放在个人目标。个人主义文化强调工作的成功与成功,财富和事业发展。 Hofstede correlated a high score in individualism with the mobility between social classes and the national equal distribution of wealth. Basically, as a country gets richer, the individualism score goes up. 霍夫斯泰德相关性高的分数在个人主义与社会阶层之间的流动性和国家平等的财富分配。基本上,作为一个国家变得更加富有,个人主义得分上升。 In contrast, collectivistic cultures are those in which people are integrated into strong, cohesive in-groups from birth, and these groups, in return for unquestioned loyalty, continue to protect the individuals throughout their lifetime.相反,集体主义文化,也就是人们融入强大,有凝聚力的群体从出生,而这些群体,不容置疑的忠诚的回报,继续为保护个人的整个生命周期。 Collectivistic cultures place a greater emphasis on groups and think more in terms of 'we'. In collectivistic cultures, harmony and loyalty are considered very important, and direct confrontation always are avoided.集体主义文化将更加注重团体和想更多的'我们'。 在集体主义文化中,和谐,忠诚被认为是非常重要的,总是避免直接对抗。 5) Long-Term Versus Short-Term Orientation: First called “Confucian dynamism”, it......

Why Business Goes Global

...Why Business Goes Golbal? ASSIGNMENT “Why does Business go Global?” Submitted By: Mohammad Ily Submitted To: Mr. Zeb Department of Management Sciences FAST-National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences, Peshawar Why does Business go Global? Going global for a business has 3 very different meanings. One meaning is to begin selling products and services to other parts of the world. A second meaning is to begin outsourcing labor to another part of the world. And, the third meaning is to begin buying materials from another part of the world. In our previous class of Global Corporate Strategy we discussed that why business goes global? There are certain advantages and disadvantages for a business to go global that are listed below: • Cheap Resources or Labor: Most of the companies go global because of cheap labor is available in another country to gain comparative advantage. In search of low cost labor the multinational companies they look into the cost of the labor and labor productivity. Companies wants to gain competitive advantage in the market and how these companies can gain competitive advantage it depends on three things, Better, Cheaper and Faster production then the companies can gain competitive advantage.

As It Goes

...days during its conquest of Caracas in violation of a cease-fire agreement.8 Turning again to the real world, in 1982 Israel attacked Lebanon under the pretext of protecting the Galilee against terrorist attack (fabricated for the U.S. audience, as tacitly conceded internally), with the intent of establishing a "New Order" there organized by elements under its control, killing 200 Russians who were manning an air defense system, heavily shelling the Russian Embassy and finally occupying it for two days during its conquest of West Beirut in violation of a cease-fire agreement. The facts were casually reported in the U.S., with the context and crucial background ignored or denied. There was, fortunately, no Soviet response, or we would not be here today to discuss the matter. In the real world, we assume as a matter of course that the Soviet Union and other official enemies, most of them defenseless, will calmly endure provocations and violence that would elicit a furious reaction, verbal and military, if the emperor and his court were the victims. The stunning hypocrisy illustrated by these and innumerable other cases, some discussed below, is not restricted to the matter of international terrorism. To mention a different case, consider the World War II agreements that allocated control over parts of Europe and Asia to the several Allied powers and called for withdrawal at specified times. There was great outrage over (in fact, outrageous) Soviet actions in Eastern Europe......

The Day Goes Forever

...Rough Draft #2 “The Day Goes Forever” “The Day Goes Forever” poem by Tom Clark talks about how the world is really busy doing its own thing and we are all “caged birds” because we are stuck in this century and we let technologies rule our lives. The title “The Day Goes Forever” in this poem gives me mixed feelings. When I first read it, I thought it was negative and the picture that came up in my mind was how the day is never ending and dragging forever. However, it also could have been positive, if you were having the best day of your life. This poem caught my eye because of the first sentence in the first verse, which is “were alone my shadow and me”. Automatically I thought about how we are trapped in this world. We are co complacent with our lives, and don’t want any changes. Tom Clark wants us to push past the isolation, fight back and open our eyes that there is a way out, we just have to find it. Also, a quote that caught my eye was by Charles Wright, “ One has to learn to leave things alone. It’s best to keep unwritten as much as possible. Poetry is just the shadow of the dog. It helps us know the dog is around, but it’s not the dog. The dog is elsewhere, and constantly on the move”. This quote made me feel that the main idea in poetry is hidden; you need to figure it out on your own in order to understand the true meaning. This could also relate to the poem I chose. The true meaning always hides behind the words, such as how environment cages us. In the first......

Nothing Ever Goes Away

...Eye, an unconventional theory is given about time. The protagonist, Elaine, describes time as being “not a line but a dimension” (Atwood 3) and something “You don’t look back along but down through like water” (3), where events are “like a series of liquid transparencies, one laid on top of another” (3) and nothing ever disappears in it. In the novel, Elaine is forever haunted by memories of Cordelia, a childhood friend who she was both adored and tormented by. Despite not having any contact with her for several decades, Elaine continues to see Cordelia in every female she encounters in her life, causing her to have trust issues with her daughters, strangers from work as well as herself. In Cat’s Eye, Cordelia is proof that “Nothing [ever] goes away” (3) in time. To begin with, Cordelia affects the way in which Elaine views her own daughters. When they reach the age of nine, Elaine begins to fear that she may hate them, as not only was it at this age that she herself met and was terrorized by Cordelia, but because she also sees Cordelia in their every action. For instance, when her daughters begin to respond with “So?”(268) to her, Elaine suddenly sees, not her children, but Cordelia in accurate detail, as if she is standing right in front of her, and is reminded about how “Cordelia did the same thing, at the same age” (268), with “The same folded arms, the same immobile face, the blank-eyed stare” (268). This mirrors the way in which, whenever Elaine would provide excuses......

Ragin July 4, 2011 Celluclear Wireless Goes Global Kendra Sherman, a business development specialist for Celluclear Wireless has secured an order for 100, 000 cell phones from Russia, who has a promotion with a telephone provider there, the order must be ready in the next 90 days. These phones are somewhat identical to the Alpha Model currently produced by Celluclear, which runs $20 a unit. However, the Russian Company is only willing to pay $15 per unit for the order that has been secured by Kendra. Kendra is eager about meeting with Lars Norman the production manager to ascertain whether or not she can win and deliver on such a big order in the 90 days. Celluclear Wireless is a company who has conducted business extensively in the United States; however, the production manager Lars Norman is considering going global and outsourcing to Japan, who is widely known for manufacturing cell phones and has received awards for his outstanding product processes. The Japanese Manufacturer further claims that the product would be identical to Celluclear’s current product and would cost at least $14 a unit. If Lars decision is to go with the Japanese Company this would be a substantial savings because the Russian Company is willing to pay $15 per unit, so there would be a $1 profit on each unit. Lars Norman, production manager for Celluclear must decide......

Here There Be Tygers

...Literary essay “Here There Be Tygers” ”The authority of those who teach is often an obstacle to those who want to learn” – Marcus Tullius Cicero The school is supposed to be a place where children can let their imagination flow. But in the school of the 1960´s, rules, authorities, discipline and the promise of physical punishment to those who did not obey, subjugated children’s imagination. Stephen King’s short story from 1968 “Here There Be Tygers” is about a strict teacher and a young boy whose imagination comes to live in the shape of a fearsome tiger, and challenges the order and the strict discipline of a US primary school. The story is narrated from the main character Charles´ perspective. The narrator is a third person, non-omniscient narrator, which means that we see the world trough Charles´ eyes, from a child’s perspective. This signifies that we see things that happen, the way he experiences it. To Charles, the tiger, which he encounters in the men’s bathroom, is as real as Miss Bird. Charles feels that his teacher, Miss Bird, is hostile towards him, the narrator says: ”She meant to pounce. Charles thought that miss bird was about to find out what pouncing was really about”(p.159, l.23-25). This displays Charles´ apprehension towards miss Bird because, from his perspective, it feels like his teacher really is attacking him. From a grown ups perspective, miss Birds behaviour would not seem as aggressive as it does to Charles. Charles has a very......

Here There Be Tygers

...“Here There Be Tygers” By Stephen King “Logic will get you from A to Z, imagination will get you everywhere.” (Albert Einstein). This is just one out of Albert Einstein’s many famous quotes about imagination. Einstein was against society and its way to learn and educate children. Now at days society has high expectation that we follow the rules and focus on getting good grades. Yes, knowledge is off cause a good thing and we need that to learn and evolve to be mature adults. Knowledge will get you from A to Z, but imagination can take you wherever you like to go. Off cause we have to follow the set of rules society makes, but that doesn’t give them the right to tell us what to do or interfere in our naturally evolvement. ”Here there be tygers”(1968), is a short story written by Stephen King. The short story is about how a boy’s imagination and free will, can lead a rebellious strike against modern society. The story is narrated from Charles’ perspective and the narrator is a third person, nom-omniscient narrator. The story takes place in the Acorn Street Grammar School. We can’t be sure about the historical time, but two posters on the bulletin board in the hall within the school indicate that the historical time might take place around the 1970’s in USA. The woodsy owl made its first appearance in 1971 and officer friendly was an officer in the U.S Marine Corps who travelled around to schools in the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Within the school, the story especially......

Anything Goes

...Adam Lopez Mrs.Leinweber Oceanography 14 October 2015 Water Desalination Plant Report To begin, when arriving to the desalination plant I didn’t really think there was much of process to turn salt water into drinkable freshwater. After going through the plant and being shown exactly how the salt particles and other minerals are separated I realized that there are many steps to the solution/process. First water goes through the water intake then goes through the ultrafiltration process, this acts like a filter for all particles over 10-20 Nano meters in size examples of these Nano particles such as pollen, algae, bacteria, viruses, germs and organic molecules. Even after the ultrafiltration process there are still sodium and other minerals and particles that we cannot healthfully consume. This is where the second process takes place and this is Reverse Osmosis, when this procedure occurs a device called an Energry Recovery Device takes in both water and salt molecules and splits them apart making the water purified from all sodium and other oceanic particles, this exact procedure of splitting the molecules apart uses the most energy. This is why the (ERD) device was then invented by ERI, because not only does it purify the water it transfers pressure and reuses up to 40 percent of the energy it took to split and filter all the particles. It takes two gallons of salt water to create one gallon of fresh water making the salt water to fresh water conversion ratio 2:1. It......

...(usually softens) the rhetorical effect (“die” vs. “pass away” vs. “in a better place”). Different choices of language signal different implications and underlying philosophies. Euphemisms tend to distance the audience from the subject, using more vague and imprecise language (“collateral damage” vs. “unintended killings,” “got the better end of the deal,” vs. “swindled the other guy”). Paraphrase: An alternative phrasing of an author’s original language. Don’t paraphrase simply to pretend an author’s arguments or content are your ideas, or to avoid accusations of plagiarism. Instead, paraphrase in order to reveal something that wasn’t obvious in the author’s original words. Effective paraphrases make the implicit explicit (“What she’s saying here is...”) Always give credit to your sources, even when you paraphrase. Summary: Similar to paraphrase (in that you choose your own words to describe an author’s argument), except in a summary, you compress large portions of text into a much smaller space. You’ll need to choose specific things to focus on in a summary. You aren’t trying to restate every claim and every piece of evidence. Instead, choose smaller parts of the text that are relevant to your work and explain how you want your reader to understand them. Quotation: A rhetor’s exact language reproduced with precise accuracy (no words changed!), attributed to them, and presented in quotation marks. (She said, “This is what a quotation looks like.”) Analysis: An......

...imagine that we are building a snowman and act out the movements. I would also bring in different size balls that children could try stacking and problem solve ways to keep them together. In another activity I would play music and ask the children to describe where they think the snowman would be flying over and have them dance to the rhythm if it’s fast or slow. The music would be jungle music, ocean waves, sounds of nature, etc. The second book I chose is “The Lion and the Bird” by Marianne Dubac. This is a wonderful heartfelt story of a Lion who finds a Bird in his garden. The bird is left behind by his flock so Lion cares for him through the winter. The Bird ends up Leaving with her flock in the spring. The Lion misses her terribly as he goes back to his solitary life. When Autum returns so does Bird. Activities for this book that promote music would be to play music of various tempos promoting different feelings. I would also give the children scarves to add extra interest in the body’s movements. The last book that I selected was “Orion and the Dark” by Emma Yarlett. This was a book about a little boy named Orion who was scared of a lot of things, especially the dark. One night dark takes orion on an adventure. I love that Dark is depicted as a soft friendly being. For this book I would have the children turn off the lights and follow glowing stars on the floor through an obstacle course. This may have to start out with one light on depending on how comfortable the......

...ability in the field of engineering, accounting and computer science. Abilities develop from an individual's natural aptitudes and subsequent learning opportunities. Aptitudes are relatively stable capacities for performing some activity effectively. Learning opportunities translate aptitude into abilities through practice, experience and formal training. Organizations have to ensure that people possess the necessary abilities to engage in the behaviors required for effective performance. This can 6e accomplished either by careful selection of people or by a combination of selection and training. • Skills are generally thought of as being more task-specific capabilities than abilities. For example, an individual with numerical ability who goes to school to learn accounting develops a numerical skill specific to that field'. Thus, when a particular ability is applied to a specialized area, (for example accounting), it becomes a skill. • Competencies are skills associated with specialization. Competencies are skills that have been refined by practice and experience and that enable, the-individual to specialize in some field. For example, an accountant with numerical "ability and accounting skill takes a position in the Taxation Department and as time passes, he develops more competency as a tax expert. Physical abilities such as strength, flexibility, endurance and stamina can be developed with exercise and training. Mental abilities such as reasoning, memory......
