One of the biggest, and most emphasized themes in “We3” is that of human qualities existing in non-human characters. We see three animals that have been altered with by the government and turned into killing machines. However we see many things that indicate that despite their human capabilities, they still show many qualities of regular animals of their respective species. One of the clearest examples of this is in the second chapter on the twenty-ninth page. Here we see 1 after he and 2 attacked, and ultimately killed a human and his dog. They attacked after the man shot 3, and the dog tried to protect his owner. 1 went immediately for the human while 2 took care of the attacking dog. In these panels, we see 1 practically beating himself up for what he did. He is sitting there with his eyes closed and his head down, which is typically pretty clear body language for somebody that is sad or upset about something. This goes along with the theme I mentioned earlier because people don’t usually think of animals as having the capability to be upset about their actions. Remorse is ordinarily thought of as being a quality that us humans have, but one that animals would not possess. In the panel 1 continues to repeat “Bad dog, bad dog, bad dog” which shows that he is disappointed in his own actions and that it is bothering him that he had to do what he did to the man. It is the only thing that is on his mind, even when 2 asks about home after it, 1 just keeps on saying “Bad dog, bad dog” because it is the only thing that he can think about, and he can’t get it off of his mind. Another way that this particular scene shows a human quality through the animals is you notice that 1 never attacked until the hunter actually hurt 3. The hunter actually pointed his gun and 3 for a few panels and warned him to…...

Same Planet

...Same Planet-different worlds Growing up partly in Nigeria and in the United States gave me an insight into how different and sometimes similar cultures and values are. I was fourteen years old when my family relocated from Nigeria to the U.S, but at that age I was already groomed by my parents and society to act and think a certain way. This was a mindset that was ingrained in me right from a tender age. There was one acceptable way to act in public and quite a different one with family and friends. As limiting as that was, it was an acceptable lifestyle in Nigeria. Coming to the U.S. and experiencing the differences in culture was a big shock to me. It was not an easy transition. I quickly found out that some of the things frowned upon in Nigeria were acceptable in this society. Some of the fundamental cultural differences between these societies are in their outlooks on divorce, homosexuality, and the roles of women. One of the differences that struck me was how briefly marriages lasted in America because of divorce. Although many marriages are arranged in Nigeria, married couples tussle to sort issues out for better or for worse, no matter what the situation is. I, like most Nigerians, believe marriage is a form of blessing if married couples are willing to grow old together. The divorce process is fairly easy in America; however, most couples will file for divorce at the first sign of trouble. My first year as a freshman in America was devastating mainly because many......

Never on Sunday

...Case Study – Never on Sunday 1. The personal beliefs of McCoy and the Cathy families influenced the organizational culture by only expecting from their employees what they expect of themselves. People deserve a day of rest. They deserve a break. The McCoy’s and Cathy’s share their values and beliefs and incorporate this into the expected behaviors. Their cultural rules based on their Evangelical Christian belief in their faith through letting their “feet do it” shows the commitment to their God through what they do. 2. The lessons for developing high performance organizational cultures for business that are not family run is that it is proven effective. It is a golden rule that all parents teach their children as they grow up. Treat others the way you would want to be treated. Business relationships are not different. This relationships need to follow the golden rule too. Companies can use organizational development techniques to manage, nurture, and guide cultural change and adaptation. With strong commitment to collaborative efforts and human values (the golden rule), group and/or individual intervention is effective. 3. The challenges for a new leader who is interested in moving their organization in the direction of the McCoy’s or Chick-fil-A is to get management to buy in that a day’s worth of lost sales is worth the moral and positive attitudes of the employee’s. Employees consider the no workday as a benefit and feel rewarded. Feeling......

...was gradual and most workers were probably able to find new jobs[2]. Moreover, even though the company does have social obligations, the Friedman Doctrine is at least partly relevant: a company has to seek profits in order to survive. Summing up, in order for the decision to be ethical, the company should seek profits, but also minimise social and this is what Ohio Art surely did. Question 2: Whether it is ethical for Ohio Art to continue employing Kinki Answer A Note: This student acknowledges that there are many ethical standards, not all of which lead to the same conclusion. S(he) clearly shows how the same set of facts can lead to divergent conclusions. This issue can be analysed from multiple perspectives. From the cultural relativist point of view, the fact that the Chinese authorities turn a blind eye to such practices means that the company should do the same. According to the righteous moralist perspective, the company should desist cooperating because doing so would be applying double standards. The proponents of the naïve immoralist views would claim that since the Chinese businessmen have problems with property rights or keeping the RMB undervalued, western employers should not comply with ethical standards in China. Nevertheless, since the view that human rights are undeniable rights of every human being is now widespread (judging on the number of NGOs and governments supporting such a view), it seems to be reasonable to assume......

...the daylight make giant shiny cobwebs of the treetops. The sun had not yet risen and a mist lay over the ground, which made the forest seem rather spooky to him. His nose itched and he longed to scratch it, maybe just nudge it a little, but Pa said don’t move, don’t twitch , don’t even breathe hard. Not one arm, one hand, even one finger, he said. “He knows the woods,” Pa told him; “you’ll never know he’s there; suddenly he’ll just be there looking at you, just looking.” It started so long ago, Tommy remembered, almost a year, when he was just eleven. That night, in the hen-yard, with the weasel’s eyes glistening in the flashlight. He never even fired a shot, just stood there with his mouth open, foolish, while the weasel dashed into the woods. And Pa knocking the rifle from his hands and asking, “Why didn’t you shoot? What you waiting on? What’s wrong with you, boy?” “Pa, I . . . I couldn’t, Pa. I just couldn’t.” Pa hunkered down and pulled on a blade of grass. He didn’t say anything for a minute, just knelt there chewing on that grass. “You never did like to kill nothing did you, boy? Even when you was small.” Tommy looked at the ground with out saying anything and his father sighed, “Tommy, dammit, a man always dies a little when he kills something, but it just plain has to be done. Some animals just ain’t no damn good and got the be killed. Understand?” He nodded without answering, still looking at the ground, and Pa stood......

...Case #1 Eye Vision Inc. 1. Is Eye Vision’s arrangement with Holland Hospital within the scope of ASC 985-605, Software: Revenue Recognition? Eye Vision’s arrangement with Holland Hospital is not within the scope of ASC 985-605. According to the case, “Eye Vision has never sold, nor does it offer to sell, the Clear View Laser without the embedded software.” In fact, the case makes it readily apparent that the Clear View Laser will not function without its hardware specific software. ASU 2009-14 (Topic 985) states that, “if the software contained on the tangible product is essential to the tangible product’s functionality, the software is excluded from the scope of the software revenue guidance.” In its accounting guidance, the update states further that, “tangible products containing software components and non-software components that function together to deliver the tangible product’s essential functionality are no longer within the scope of the software revenue guidance in Subtopic 985-605. According to the case documentation, “ the software is necessary to perform the medical procedures for which the laser is intended.” This would imply that Eye Vision’s hardware/software product combination is not within the scope of ASC 985-605. As additional evidence, the amendment offers several illustrations as guidance. One example states that a rebuttable presumption exists if sales of the tangible product (Eye Vision laser) without the software elements are infrequent....

Never Event

...CMS AND HOSPITAL REINBURSMENT FOR NEVER EVENTS Never Events are errors in medical care that are of concern to both the public and healthcare professionals, and providers. The term "Never Event" was first introduced in 2001 by Ken Kizer, MD, former CEO of the National Quality Forum (NQF), in reference to particularly shocking medical errors such as wrong-site surgery that should never occur (Rosenthal 2012). The CMS issued new rules in 2008 that halt payment to hospitals for treatment of preventable patient complications and injuries, which referred to as “Never Events”. Ten categories of hospital-acquired condition that are reasonably preventable were identify by CMS (ECRI 2008). These are pressure ulcer stages III and IV; falls and trauma; surgical site infection after bariatric surgery for obesity, certain orthopedic procedures, and bypass surgery ,vascular- catheter associated infection; catheter-associated urinary tract infection; administration of incompatible blood; air embolism; and foreign object unintentionally retained after surgery All these are preventable conditions and are subject to nonpayment. This rule that halt payment to hospitals for preventable patient complication and injuries, has tremendous effect on hospital nursing practice. (Herb 2009). As the public becomes aware of the new CMS rules, legal concern have been raise about an increase in malpractice claims related to hospital acquired conditions. Strict liability imposes legal responsibility for...

Same Sex

...Pink Triangle Experiences I was a person who maintain a neutral position on homosexuality because I want to respect their sexual preferences, and want to understand people who do not like homosexuality at same time. I thought homosexuality was their choices so people who against the homosexuality could show their feelings. However, wearing pink triangle for two weeks change my thoughts and perspectives on homosexuality. In this paper, I will address how I felt and how my thoughts changed last two weeks. When professor distributed pink triangles during class, I was not sure whether I pick up or not because my community is not open to homosexuals, and I was worried about how people would view me. Also, I felt lots of pressures before I picked up pink triangle pin because all of my classmates chose to get a pink triangle. The reason I chose to get a pink triangle was because I want to test myself about homosexuality and how I view them deep in my heart. While I wear a pink triangle during last two weeks, I faced lots of difficult situations with people who are against the homosexuality. The most difficult situation was parent’s complaint after parents’ meeting. On April 28th, I had parents meeting with my students’ parents, I discussed my students’ problems and developments with their parents. During the meeting, lots of parents noticed about pink triangle on my chest, and they asked me about the meaning of the triangle. I told them...

Never Again

...Never Again I’ve had enough. Why am I living like this when I don’t have to? I have my own life to live. There’s no reason as to why you, my own father, can control me. I might only be 12 but I can make my own decisions. “Hey Dad, can I go to lunch with Mum?” At this point I was cheerful and enjoying my morning… Well that changed quickly. I didn’t know what I’d done. He lost it. I only asked to go to lunch, what’s the big deal? He was completely mad at me. He was yelling at me until he got in the car and screamed out the driveway. My brother had no idea what he could do to help. Neither of us had ever seen Dad like this. I was a complete mess; my eyes were red and puffy and had tears pouring down my cheeks. Everything hurt. I was scared and upset. I had no idea what to do. How was I supposed to know what to do? I was only 12. I walked back to my room after yet another argument with Dad. For all I know he is oblivious to what or how I feel. Why shouldn’t he be? Yes he’s my dad but I can’t speak my thoughts. Everything has been kept in for too long. I was only just holding together. It was Dad’s weekend to have me but I wanted to go to lunch with mum. I’m not sure what happened to him the night before, or whether it was just his feelings and emotions that had built up over the years, but what I asked must’ve been the last straw. He lost it. He took it all out on me. I could hear the tyres coming back down the gravel driveway. I got up and sat outside on the...

Never Give Up

...able to be on the court with my teammates and having to watch them from the bench was extremely difficult to deal with. Consequently, as I missed the whole season, I wanted to start new. Once my knee was completely healed and I was finished with therapy, I joined a travelling club team. I immediately fell in love with the game again when I started playing. I still struggled with regaining the same strength and agility I had before, due to the lack of playing time I lost, but I never gave up. Unfortunately, I underwent the same circumstances when playing my junior year. It hurts to have something that you love taken away from you. When my playing time was taken from me a second time, my confidence and hope was lowered significantly. My love for the game, however, never wavered. After the school season ended, I went on to play volleyball on a travelling team again. Being able to be on the court and doing what I loved brought back the confidence and hope that I had lost before. Playing volleyball has had an enormous impact on my life. The most important thing I learned from playing was to never give up. If I hadn’t been persistent, defying the ups and downs and continuously learning throughout the journey, I wouldn’t be the person I am now....

Never Make the Same Mistake Twice

...Never Make the Same Mistake Twice Latisha Tucker Everest College Short Narrative Essay: Never Make the Same Mistake Twice I have had to learn the hard way of what my parents meant when they used to always tell me to never make the same mistake twice. I did not figure out what they were truly saying to me until I started my own life and began to make an endless number of mistakes. I learned from life’s experiences that the only way you could truly live up to this saying is when you make a complete transformation from your old ways. My life took some tremendous turns in March of 1997 when I gave birth to my first born son. I was only a child myself so I was completely clueless about what was going on in my life at the time. This was the moment when I had to make a decision to change my life for the better simply because I had a child to take care of. It was so hard for me to believe that I was a junior in high school and seventeen years old ,holding a newborn baby in my arms at the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. Everything that I once knew changed and all I wanted to focus on was being a better person for my child. I wasn’t a bad person but I made bad choices that I always ended up suffering the consequences for. When I arrived home from the hospital I immediately started going through a metamorphosis. My dedication was fully directed towards my mother for being so supportive and for assisting me and equipping me with what I needed to be successful as a teen parent......

...Should Same Sex Couples be allowed to adopt? Tanisha Culberson 08/30/2015 Should Same Sex Couples be allowed to adopt? Society's image of a perfect family includes a father and a mother of the opposite sex. People feel this is what's best for a child. What a bunch of baloney this is just a stereotype. What happened to the best interest of the child? Why are there so many same-sex couples getting rejected by adoption agencies? Why are there so many children being kicked out of the school system because they have gotten too old. In the United States, more than 397,122 children are waiting to be adopted. Approximately 2,000,000 same-sex couples are interested in adopting, but religious groups are against it, and a lot of adoption agencies associated with different religious groups. Most religious groups feel as though same-sex couples should not even marry. They believe in God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, who gave them the right to judge? Same-sex couple's path to parenting is not easy. It depends on state laws and lots of money. In addition to same-sex adoption, it could help move children out of the welfare system, which would create more money for the state.

Demand for clear plastic containers peaks in the summer months, whereas demand for black plastic containers peaks in the fall. Capacity on the extruders is not sufficient to cover demand for sheets during the peak seasons. As a result, the plant is forced to build inventory of each type of sheet in anticipation of future demand.

Never Been

...When you think about it, there isn’t a day that goes by without being tempted. Temptation comes along our paths every day in our lives. Whether it is from the foods we eat, the people we talk to, or the choices we make, knowing that sometimes they aren’t right. This is why the rapper Logic decided to inspire, or rather uplift, any of his audience going through some adversities or rough patches in life, in his song “Never Been”. Throughout his song, he uses countless examples of how he overcame adversities of his own and is reassuring that immoral temptation is challenging but he believes that we can all overcome it. Logic opens this song with the lyrics, “I’ve been workin’ like I’ve never been, I struggle everyday but I just can’t let the devil in”. Logic is saying how he recognizes how difficult it is to refrain from temptation and how he learned from every situation he has been in. We not only deal with our personal demons, but we also come in contact with outside demons such as the environment that we are put in and by some people perceiving to be the devil to destroy us. In these lyrics right here, Logic is saying we struggle everyday but we can’t let anything or anyone distract us from what we want. These demons, whether internal or external, try to corrupt us but he wants us to know that we are not alone. Immediately after these lyrics, Logic raps “And if I knew back then what I know right now, what I know right now, I’d be better than I’ve ever been, better than......

Two in the Same

...Two in the Same We were always a normal family, just like the one down the cult-de-sac or the one across the street, but what does the word “normal” really mean? What does it take to be defined as normal? Well there is no definition, really. The things you know, things you grow up around, people you see everyday, that’s what normal is, and it’s unique to every person. So I knew for a fact my family was normal, but I also knew to others things were different, and I noticed. I noticed all of the stares; their eyes leading our way down the isle of the store, the meant-to-be-quiet whispers that we always managed to hear clearly. My sister, Makenzie, noticed too. She knew people were judging her, making fun of every move she made, mocking the voice she spoke with, but she didn’t care. Would a three year old child care if people were watching as they through themselves to the floor in a tantrum, over not getting their favorite toy? I bet they don’t even open their blurry eyes, overflowing with crocodile tears, to even notice. Neither does Makenzie, that’s all she really is though. A three year old child; condemned to a eighteen year old body. Her and I were complete opposites. Sometimes, regretfully, I would question if she was even a real member of our family. From many generations of thick black hair, pallid complexions, and petite figures, how could I have a blue eyed, light haired, giant as a sister? There was never a specific day that the light bulb......
