...-One Walking into school after months of not showing up was like walking into a nightmare. I forgot the smell and the peeling paint and the tiled floor. I forgot how the people talk and walk and stare. But being here again, it comes back in huge explosive waves. I feel sick. All I’ve been feeling lately is sick. I search for my locker. All the numbers are wrong, jumbled and unreadable. Asking would mean something is clearly wrong. I hold onto all my books, my backpack pressing hard on my shoulders. The bell rings and it is louder than I remember. I clench my teeth. The sounds resembles nails on a chalkboard, at least to me it does. Every day for two months I went to history class at this time in Mrs. Waters’ room. And now, I have no idea where it is. “Edith,” a girl’s voice says. I turn. “Yeah,” I say to Clara. Clara is the sweetest person on the planet. For the longest time I thought she was super fake because how can someone be that nice all the time. But she just is. “You have Waters still, right?” “Yeah,” I say. She loops her arm around mine. “I’m glad they didn’t change it.” “Me too,” but I don’t really care. Pulling me around corners and through different hallways we end up in history class. The room looks familiar, but a faraway familiar. Like a dream or déjà vu. She sits in the front row right next to the teacher’s desk. I escape to the back, the corner, right next to the window. Clara looks around and then moves to the seat in front of me. “I get it,”......

...that encourage teamwork, collaboration and mutual trust. It links the employee with another employee in the organization. However, cultures for the external adaption determines how the organization meets goals and deals with outsiders. Culture can encourage employee commitment to the core purpose of the organizations, its specific goals and ways to accomplish the goals. For example, when my organization arrange a chandat sotong program with the other organization to have a close relationship with them. Program conducted by the teams have meet the objectives because of the strong culture build in the organization.  MISTAKE THAT LEADERS MAKE There are some mistakes that leaders make. They always said that mistake is one of the ways to learn, however it is better that the leaders avoiding the mistake at first. It is because the simple mistake might make your followers or outsiders interpret the organization wrongly. The mistake that always been made by the leader are: i. Failing to define goal When the followers do not have the clear goal in the organization, they will not become productive. They do not know what they are doing and cannot identify the priority of their workload. Therefore, it is important to clearly define your organization’s goal to the followers and make them understand their duty and task. ii. Misunderstanding motivation Some of the leaders misunderstanding the ways to give motivations to their subordinate. They always think that their......

...interacting with other people; however, I downloaded a site and was impressed by the graphics, chat feature, and overall feel of the game. I decided that I needed to get a piece of the action, so I took the plunge and made my first deposit of $600 at Planet Poker. Within a few weeks, I had won over $5000. I was officially hooked and soon poker would be changing my life in a big way. However, I was fortunate that I got a good run of cards the first few months I played. I realize now that I was playing at limits too high in relation to my bankroll (more about this in the "Bankroll Management" chapter). I easily could have lost the small bankroll I had if I had rum into some poor cards. But even though I was winning. I knew I had a great deal to learn. I started reading every book I could find and studied the game as much as I could. The quality of my play really improved a lot in those first six months. I soon found myself bored in my day job, and couldn't wait to get home to, my newfound passion. Eventually, I decided to give up my six-figure income job, hang my two master's degrees on the wall, and was on my way to New Zealand to become an Internet poker pro. Everyone needs to start somewhere. My story took me around the world before this "successful" home player really began to understand the game. Whether you are going to be playing this game just a few hours a week, or whether you strive to make poker a second or main income, it makes sense to study the game. Combining......

... “As a woman in this day & age, I am in a position to ask a man what can you do for me that I can’t do for myself? I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any man…or woman for that matter. I am in the position to ask, ‘What can you bring to the table?’” The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money. She quickly corrected his thought & stated, “I am not referring to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for excellence in every aspect of life.” He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, & asked her to explain. She said, “I need someone who is striving for excellence mentally because I need conversation & mental stimulation. I don’t need a simple-minded man. I need someone who is striving for excellence spiritually because I don’t need to be unequally yoked…believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster. ...

...into why direct labor costs increased despite the decrease in bike sales. Whatever the results, mismanagement, faulty equipment, human resources issue, etc, the company should take steps to correct the problem for next year or adjusttheir estimations in the new budget. The lines for other general and admin expenses and other utilities and services should be more specific. Recommended course of action is to create additional line items rather than use these as the catch all. This will help identify more specific areas of concern.  Salaries and Compensation. It is recommended that Competition Bikes looks into why the admin salaries went up but executive compensation went down. If it was due to a demotion or something beyond control then documentation is appropriate. If something that needs to be addressed, such as excess overtime, the company should consider this change in the next budget. Utilities. First recommended action would be to put this on one line item in the budget with sub items listing how the costs breakdown by service. More detail is needed here, particularly from the other utilities and services line. The company did well to reduce utility cost this year but it is unknown if that is because some of it was calculated in manufacturing overhead, which increased unfavorably. As utility costs typically increase every year, Competition Bikes should budget for a rate increase in utilities in future years. Competition Bikes can also have the utility company come......

...point that true learning is demand driven: “People learn in response to need. When people cannot see the need for what is being taught, they ignore it, reject it, or fail to assimilate it in any meaningful way”. Barrows (1996) identifies six core aspects of PBL: student-centered learning, learning in small groups, tutor/facilitator rather than instructor, authentic problems presented without prior student preparation or study, problems used as a means to obtain both knowledge and problem-solving skills, and student responsibility to obtain relevant information needed to solve the problems. As these core elements indicate, successful PBL outcomes go beyond the mere acquisition of information or knowledge of a field or subject because (a) skills needed for problem solving are also learned in an experiential way and especially because (b) students also learn about themselves and each other because of PBL’s team approach. For example, students in one study reported learning to appreciate the difficulties and benefits of working in teams, arriving at a new sense of themselves as active contributors to a group and gaining a new sense of higher expectations for others in the group (Lycke et al., 2006). PBL thus presents learning as social and as something acquired in action; in this way, PBL provides the necessary but sometimes ignored social/cultural context for learning that will be used in practice. That is, learning about something in order to solve problems also means learning......

...LEARNING THEORY (Albert Bandura) Social learning theory focuses on the learning that occurs within a social context. It considers that people learn from one another, including such concepts as observational learning, imitation, and modeling Assumptions: 1. People are social beings; they react to the environment or respond to stimuli in the environment 2. The idea of an existing innate sex drive is superfluous since trait or trait-like behaviour is created in conjunction with environmental stimuli 3. Social behaviour can occur without external reinforcement; individual cognitions mediate the cues from the environment. * LABELING THEORY (Social Reaction Theory) Labeling theory is concerned with how the self-identity and behaviour of an individual is influenced (or created) by how that individual is categorized and described by others in their society Assumptions: 1. Labels applied to individuals influence their behaviour, particularly the application of negative or stigmatizing labels (such as "gay") promote deviant behaviour becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy References: http://www.taeterinnen.org/en/04_constructivist.html http://www.psychiatry.org/lgbt-sexual-orientation  Social learning theory Social learning theory focuses on the learning that occurs within a social context.

...more commonly used as a way of describing employees or positions (Iles, 2010). From this we can see issues of identity affirmation and the associated status and power that are ascribed to those allegedly bearing ‘talent’. In the wider public domain, the term ‘the talent’ is commonly used when referring to, for example, entertainment celebrities. Here ‘talent’ refers to those individuals who make a living from an ability to perform on stage or screen. In this context the intention is to encourage a search for ‘undiscovered talent’ and, in attempts to do so, the quest often unearths ‘raw talent.’ However, what constitutes talent is very much about perspective and is driven as much by personal preferences of ‘good’ and ‘bad’ as by something clearly definable. For instance, a popular television show cites successful individuals as having the ‘X-Factor’ with the ‘X’ referring to an indescribable quality that constitutes or denotes a special talent. The end result is that the winners of the show, that is the ‘talent’ who, by winning are believed to have the X-Factor, aren’t necessarily guaranteed a successful or sustainable career. This is because they might not after all possess the indefinable, unexplainable and unidentifiable X that will make them successful outside of the talent show. The type of talent that is associated most often with this type of entertainment show, and also with celebrated artistic and sporting ability, is often believed to be a......

...penetrate through the darkness in thin thread rays. The cloud had obscured the moon in the dark night filling the sky with a sense of anger and malice. Everything seemed ghastly and unrealistic. Just then I saw someone hurrying inside one of the doors at the top of the staircase. “Who’s there?” I shrieked and shivered with fright but the dim light of the moon flickered and the person darted away. I heard the sound of branches scratching against the glass as the wind rustled the trees and the curtains inside the house shook as if they were laughing. Whispers of lost voices echoed all around me, creating a gloomy ambiance. Hesitantly stepping forward my hands began to quiver, my heart beat faster and at that particular moment I sensed it…something was following me. My body was being overwhelmed with fear, it was harder for me to breathe and my hands frantically searched around the darkness trying to find a way to escape this nightmare. My knees collapsed underneath me, the hairs on the back of my arms and neck stood on end as I gently placed a sweaty hand on the rail which was cold as ice in order to steady myself. My lungs started screaming and my breaths started to slow down in a pitiful attempt to control my racing heartbeat. A hot, salty tear ran down my cheek as I swallowed in grim determination. I used my hands to steer me in whatever direction was obvious in the thick and opaque darkness with only the sound of my heavy breathing and my conscience telling me to leave. A......

...productiveness of our squandering of energy. There is never such thing as moving forward to another priority before dealing with the current one. Education as of now is our highest priority than anything. With the money to help kids get off their feet, get a good or beneficial education can help them grow up and help this planet of ours grow into a never-ending cycle of progress. I believe that space-exploration can wait. We need to make sure that the people on earth are healthy first instead of wasting large amounts of money to go and explore the universe when for one, earth itself is not fully explored. We also have other issues to go through. One of the most severe issues that the earth is going through today is global warming. We all have to learn to take care of our planet before going to other planets. The same as, you have to take care of yourself first, before proceeding to take care of other people. Let’s say, a rocket is launched and halfway towards leaving the earths atmosphere, it fails and falls. The government will have to pay millions of dollars to overcome these problems. If we lived in a world where we would not have gotten into much trouble if parents had taught us better than not to steal from each other, and hurt each other physically and/or emotionally, the world would be a happy and peaceful place. So it would be better if we decide to teach our children, the next generations of people to come that they can go ahead and explore space when they know......

...inside Israel. Data gathered by an Israeli organization in October 2007 found that 28.4% of adults and 72-94% of children in Sderot suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. 1596 people were reportedly treated for stress-related injuries during the military operations in Gaza while over 500 people were treated following the end of the operations. 106. Rocke and mortars have damaged houses, schools and cars in southern Israel. On 5 March 2009, a rocket struck a synagogue in Netivot. The rocket and mortar fire has adversely impacted on the right to education of children and adults living in southern Israel. This is a result of school closures and interruptions to classes by alerts and moving to shelters and also the diminished ability to learn that is witnessed in individual experiencing symptoms of psychological trauma. 107. The rocket and mortar fire has also adversely impacted on the economic and social life of the affected communities. For communities such as Ashdod, Yavne, Beer Sheba, which experienced rocket strikes for the first time during the Israeli military operations in Gaza, there was a brief interruption to their economy and cultural brought about by the temporary displacement of some of their residents. For towns closer to the Gaza border that have been under rocket and mortar fire since 2001, the recent escalation has added to the exodus of residents from these areas. 108. The Mission has determined that the rockets and, to a lesser extent, mortars,......

...PRESENTATION You will be scheduled to present to the class two pages of writing by an author (poet, essayist, or fiction writer) you admire. The class presentation will focus on a specific aspect of the writing, such as characterization, tone, point of view, scene-setting/description, dialogue, etc. This will also be handed in as an essay (two pages, double-spaced) focusing on what students can learn, borrow and personalize from the example by the published writer. CREATIVE WRITING PORTFOLIO SYSTEM Assignments given out in class tend to focus on traditional poetic form or respond to the poetic innovations of non-traditional writers – responses to these assignments should appear in the portfolio. The original versions of anything you have translated don’t count toward the page total, of course; work for other courses does not count either, unless you’ve done workshops in class on the writing. Your final portfolio will contain the text of your presentation to the class of some work by a published writer you admire. MIDTERM PORTFOLIO This must be fifteen pages long, minimum. A page of poetry has twenty lines of poetry on it, on average. It is best to limit each page to one poem – though if you’re writing haikus, then that’s an exception. Single-space poems. Make sure your document has page numbers. Prose covers the whole page, but it’s double-spaced. If you’re writing short prose pieces (i.e. ‘flash fiction,’ ‘prose poems,’ ‘short shorts,’ etc.) then you may......

...those who cause these deaths and accidents should be punished. President Obama has now stepped in on this issue and banned texting to all government officials while in a car owned by the government or in their own possession. Now 16 states have passed a bill through congress that has banned texting while in a car. Many Americans are saying that sending a text message while driving is the number one danger to all of their kids. Texting while driving takes away concentration on the road and driving skills, it also causes a person to not look at the road as such when something happens where you need to stop or avoid it then there would be less time to react when you finally look up, the faster you are going of course the more distance you will cover before reacting. Many places are banning cell phone use while driving due to concentration problems many people have, if they are talking about a crisis or something their attention is not on the road and what is going on around them, texting multiplies that and is much worse since they aren't even looking at where they are going while inputting the digits. The worst rail road accident in the US in terms of human lives lost happened because the Metrolink driver was texting and didn't see the signal....
