U.S. Politics M W 7:30 PM

I believe the biggest political problem facing the United States today, is lack of equal education. We are constantly told that all education is equal. However, this is obviously not true. On the basic level, there is a clear distinction between private and public schools. Primarily this is easy to see in the middle and high school level. Since public education is free, and private is not the economically privileged can afford to send their children to private school, with smaller classes, bigger salaries for teachers, and a more academically based curriculum. Private schools also focus on college level studies, with more homework and the like. Public schools tend to focus more on rules and keeping everyone in line. This is more prevalent in poorer areas. In public schools, there is a lack of equality, because, even though taxes pay for schools, the schools in wealthier neighborhoods get more funding, because more tax money is being paid. I believe this is the biggest problem in the U.S., because it allows us to continually divide our classes, and have generations stay in the same place. If someone goes to a public school, in a poorer area, they are not going to acquire the proper academic skills, to really be prepared for college. They will not receive grants, or have the proper skills to get the kind of financial aide needed. Typically their parents won’t have the money to send their child to college, and a lot more poor drop out, because they get tired of the system, and see the truth of it trying to keep them in line, rather than helping and bettering. The student needs to make money, because unlike wealthier kids, their parent aren’t giving them money, so often they will drop out to have income. Then most of their life, they will struggle to get by, and their kids will most likely go to…...

...Fact sheet DECLARED CLASS 2 PEST ANIMAL Feral cat ecology and control A descendant of the African wild cat (Felis silvestris lybica), the common ‘house’ cat (Felis catus) has now been domesticated for about 4000 years. Although the domestic cat has a long history of association with humans, it retains a strong hunting instinct and can easily revert to a wild (feral) state when abandoned or having strayed from a domestic situation. Semi-feral cats live around dump sites, alleys or abandoned buildings, relying on humans by scavenging rubbish scraps and sheltering in abandoned structures. The true feral cat does not rely on humans at all, obtaining its food and shelter from the natural environment. Declaration details The feral cat is declared as a Class 2 species under the Land Protection (Pest and Stock Route Management) Act 2002. Declared species represent a threat to primary industries and natural resources, and have a social impact on other human activities. Legislation describes a feral cat as one that is not fed and kept by someone. The word ‘kept’ specifically means that the cat is housed in a domestic situation. PA26 June 2012 Description and general information The feral cat differs little in appearance from its domestic counterpart; however, when in good condition, the feral cat displays increased overall muscle development, especially noticeable around the head, neck and shoulders, which gives the animal a more robust appearance. The average body......

...before I travel,” he explained. Within an hour of take-off, he retired to his private bedroom, re-emerging shortly before landing some 16 hours later. On the ground it was a whirl of wine-tasting and helicopter sightseeing, the handover of the whisky – now “on loan” from the heritage trust – and a final celebratory dinner with stalwarts of the trust. “They weren’t very willing to part with this to begin with and they made it very clear they were not willing to allow these to be shipped by commercial flight,” says a sanguine Mr Mallya during the flight back to Mumbai, as he tucks into the breakfast of congee collected on a refuelling stop in Singapore. “It made more sense to go on my own private plane and collect it.” Such grand gestures – and frenzied schedules – are typical of Mr Mallya, the bête noire of the Scottish whisky industry, who dominates India’s fast-expanding beer and spirits market while foreign rivals desperately struggle for better access to the country’s increasingly affluent consumers. He also owns the Royal Challengers Bangalore, an Indian Premier League cricket team, and Force India, a Formula One racing team. The old-fashioned, medium-sized family business Mr Mallya inherited in 1983 at the age of 28 is now an Indian behemoth that sells 60 per cent of the spirits and half of the beer that Indians consume each year. Day-to-day affairs of the beverage business are handled by professional managers, many of whom have been with him for decades. “I am......

...through and study for different types of surgeries and equipment needed to perform those surgeries. It was very difficult to make time for anything else and I was still worried about my family and the health of my grandfather. Again, it’s no excuse to have let my GPA slip during that time. On December 20th of 2011 my grandfather finally passed away from his illness and I was still struggling with my new work setting. After two years, I now realize the importance of finishing my degree, and now I am at a point where if it’s going to happen then I need to do something about it now. I have had regrets ever since I was suspended and not a day goes by that I don’t think about it. I greatly appreciate the chance to attend Sullivan University but I’m afraid I will be unable to unless my financial aid is granted. Since I graduated high school the dream of me going to college has always rested on my shoulders as well as the burden of how to figure out how to pay for it. Financial aid has always helped me through my academic career and now I’m asking that given the circumstances, that the committee give me another chance and reinstate my financial aid. I am serious about my future and I recognize that a master’s degree is essential in attaining a great career. Again, thank you for taking the time to read this letter, and I assure you, if granted financial aid, my education is and will continue to be my main priority. Thank you, Mark Kerris...

...A Tool Used Then and Now My tool is a sharp-pointed stone. It’s usually made from flint, a type of stone. Homo Habilis made it by banging two stones together and breaking one of them, leaving it with a sharp edge. It could also be made by just flaking and chipping pieces off the edges of a flint stone. Early humans used this tool to cut bones, meat, twigs, and dead animal skins. Although this tool was substantially distinguished from others, it is very easily made and has multiple purposes. This tool was also used as a weapon, allowing early human ancestors to travel to different regions where they may have encountered dangerous animals. This enabled early humans to use this tool to hunt and to protect themselves. This tool reflects the past because it was created by ancient ancestors in ancient times. It reflects the present because knives and arrows were invented from the idea of a sharp pointed rock and are used in similar ways today. It reflects the future because overtime people will develop and discover more ways to use and make sharp objects. Time has affected this tool because where in ancient times this tool was hand-crafted using stone, modern inventions are often made from metals using robotic machinery. The one thing that remains the same is its purpose. My perspective of this tool is different from an ancient point of view because I simply see it as an ancient tool used long ago. We no longer have to make our tools by hand. I can just go to a store and buy...

...Then and Now Life, is it the same as it was millions of years ago? No, this is because of what is known as evolution. The world is forever changing. There seems to be something new discovered all the time. This maybe because the scientist have not had time to explorer everywhere and everything. However, there could also be another explanation to this, evolution. Evolution is a scientific theory that helps to explain the presences of new varieties of living things, both now, in the present as well as in the history of the earth. The theory of evolution is based on the differences and similarities that occur within living things over a period of time and among habitats. It takes in consideration the biological processes that occur of genetic drift, natural selection, gene mutations, and changes in the habitats that occur. This theory explains why in the past there may have been many different varieties of a species, but now there are far less of them. A species changes over time. It can grow bigger, smaller, develops new traits, or many other things can change in it. The evolution of a horse is an example of this. Over 50 million years ago, the horse was an animal that was about the size of today’s dog. The earlier horses were better suited for a tropical area than the plains of out west. However, because of evolution they adapted this maybe because of other animals that were predators or because of the lack of resources that were available. Horses even had multiple......

...writing requires many different tools, strategies, and devices, which could be applied by Sharpe to improve her argument.  Although Sharpe has many flaws in her argument, she also utilizes many positive tools.  One of these positive aspects in her argument was the comparing of time periods.  By stating that there has been a significant increase in foreign language speakers from 1990 to 2007, and specifically stating how much, she concretely gives an example of her argument and the scale in which her argument is relevant.   Although this comparison of time periods is a positive aspect in her paper, there is also a problem with her information.   Sharpe’s data is no longer current. Now that the current year is 2011, any 2007 data is considered out dated, and is less relevant to the present day.  Now that her positive aspect of time comparison has been evaluated, a second positive aspect of Sharpe’s argument must be discussed. The second positive aspect of Sharpe's writing is the fact that she gave a reason for the problem.  Sharpe states in her article, "gone are the old night schools that once taught English to immigrants"(722).  She includes this fact in her article to further back up her argument of increased non-English speakers.  This quote gives an example of the reason by which there has been an increase in non-English speakers. By utilizing this element in her writing, she further explains her argument and starts to build more credibility among her readers. The......

...and would benefit from our help, please tell us. Big Rock measures success as being able to pitch in and support their community wherever they can. They have annual Eddie awards, which raise money for deserving local charities. They support hundreds of various arts events across the country. Community based word-of-mouth programs will continue to build the Big Rock brand across all of our markets. If you have driven through rural Alberta recently you may have seen our giant beer cans on display in farmers’ fields across the province. To erect these larger-than-life beer cans we stack two round hay bales on top of each other and then wrap the bales in a giant tarp printed with our beer can artwork. Building on this program we will now accept nominations for farmers who are “outstanding in their field”. The winners will be awarded hay bale beer cans as their trophy. To us each hay bale beer can celebrates the hard work of our farmers and has presented an opportunity for us to meet them and thank them personally. The program continues to tie us to our farming roots: Alberta grows the best malting barley in the world - and Big Rock uses it exclusively. The brewery was founded in 1985 by Ed McNally. A lawyer by trade, Ed McNally was representing a group of barley growers in a legal action against the Alberta Wheat Board in the 1980s. Through the course of the legal action, McNally learned that the Alberta climate produces 2-row barley that is ideally suited for malting,...

Being able to read makes me feel I have accomplished something. There are people who struggle at reading and need help throughout their life beside everything involves reading. It's hard for anybody that can't read because so much revokes around reading. Doing this essay makes me look at how important it is to be able to read and write, so this is a huge success. My strengths have always been to be good at math and to be a leader to anyone who has wanted to be lead in a good direction, which has made me go hard in school and and during my extracurricular activities. The soccer field, the track, and the baseball diamond are all places where i must lead everyone to success. Going back to the kindergarden, i can remember my teacher Mr. Skinner telling me “You're a smart kid Marvell, but no one is going to know how smart you are until you give all your effort in school and show them”. In the fifth grade i remembered that moment because i realized that i was not leading and showing anyone that i was a smart kid. Now i look back at that moment all the time and try to show everyone how smart of a kid i am and it makes me want to just be the most outstanding, hardworking agent in the world now to show that i once will be a man....

...laced his tiny knapsack and ran away from his home in the Waldviertel. Despite the at tempts of 'experienced' villagers to dissuade him, he made his way to Vienna, there to learn a trade. This was in the fifties of the past century. A desperate decision, to take to the road with only three gulden for travel money, and plunge into the unknown. By the time the thirteen-year-old grew to be seventeen, he had passed his apprentice's examination, but he was not yet content. On the contrary. The long period of hardship, endless misery, and suffering he had gone through strengthened his determination to give up his trade and become 'something better.' Formerly the poor boy had regarded the priest as the embodiment of all humanly attainable heights; now in the big city, which had so greatly widened his perspective, it was the rank of civil servant. With all the tenacity of a young man whom suffering and care had made 'old' while still half a child, the seventeen-year-old clung to his new decision - he did enter the civil service. And after nearly twenty-three years, I believe, he reached his goal. Thus he seemed to have fulfilled a vow which he had made as a poor boy: that he would not return to his beloved native village until he had made something of himself. His goal was achieved; but no one in the village could remember the little boy of former days, and to him the village had grown strange. When finally, at the age of fifty-six, he went into retirement, he could not bear to......

...Advertising and Promotion skills for the summer movie series as well and designed them on Microsoft Publisher. My last project was creating a New Member Orientation video. This video will show new members how to get the most out of their membership and thrive as a professional in this community by working with the Chamber. Emily got me started on this project by giving me some examples from other Chambers. From these examples, we made an outline and storyboard for the four-part video. Emily then gave me a contacts list of members to interview. I visited 16 members and talked with them how the Chamber has benefited their business and what Chamber-sponsored events they enjoy most. I recorded their responses and gave the recordings to Emily. Now, Emily will take the recordings I captured and lay them on top of footage and photos to finish the New Member Orientation Video. The richest part of my internship was connecting with Chamber members. These members are some of the most influential leading business professionals in Calhoun County. I plan on staying in this area after graduation, so making connections with possible future employers and business partners was a large aspiration of mine. Linda Hearn, the Chamber Manager, was gracious enough to let me sit in on the Chamber Board meeting. Here, I learned what changes were taking place in the upcoming months and how that would affect business locally. After the meeting, I talked with several Chamber board members who were......

...actually selling fairly consistently and what is not before they begin to implement this strategy. Starbucks also needs to focus on the long-term especially when considering their debt and asset acquisitions. Two important ratios that come up in relations to debt and assets are the liabilities to assets and liabilities to equity ratios. There is an upward trend in both ratios when comparing Starbucks and Panera in both companies. Though, Starbucks shows a bit more risk in their ratios when considering the actual numbers versus the trend across time. There is a significant spike in the long-term debt of the company that relates to both ratios which heighten the company’s future risk. Although the numbers may not seem to pose a real threat now, the trend just shows a bit of a risk that may be incurred in the future. Again, going back to the strategy that Starbucks plans to incorporate with the expansion overseas, and the growth in their product line this trend may have the creditors hanging over Starbucks back. On the other hand, Starbucks does effectively use their assets as a tool for generating themselves a bit of profit in comparison to Panera with a steady increase in ROA across time. However, 2008 and 2009 ROA is low compared to the other years which can be attributable to restructuring expenses during those years. Essentially without restructuring expense the numbers can still be compared over time. All in all, Starbucks seems to be in good standing in relation to its......
