Thesis Statement:

Personal Responsibility is being held accountable by yourself, peers, and superiors for what you

do or fail to do. The reason I include peers and superiors in my definition is because in a class

room environment we all are responsible for gathering resources, planning and organizing in

efforts of completing all assignment in in a timely and efficient manner. When we are giving

group assignments, it is essential that all students identify and understand their individual roles,

responsibilities, and completion date. At this point we become responsible to each other and it

becomes imperative that we all complete our individual tasks prior to a set suspense date, so that

all parties involved can compile all information and submit a finished product on time every time.

In order to succeed in college, you must understand that you are personally responsible for your

failure or success. I understand that I have not been in an academic environment and quite

some time, so I must train myself to adopt good study habits, manage my time more effectively,

review the Syllabus more frequently, take advantage of down time by not putting my

assignments off tomorrow when I know…...

Fall Out or Sell Out?

...with man to man, and drug to even more serious drugs. Kristina, or Bree, finally gets to point where her child is taken away from her. By the end of the book, Kristina is completely out of control and is now pregnant again. Fallout is the third and final book of the Crank series. I had been greatly anticipating this book since I am a huge fan of Hopkins and her fans have been waiting since 2004 to see Kristina's fate. So, when the book finally came out, I couldn't put it down. It wasn't because it was fantastic like I had hoped, but I felt like I had to finish it to finish the series. The book was told from the perspective of three of her five children. Hunter, who is her oldest and who we learned about in the first two books, Autumn, and Summer. Each child lives a different life with different guardians, all not in the best situations. They also know of each other from other family members or Kristina herself, but they have yet to meet one another. Kristina is not in any of their lives, she's rarely in this book. The way the story is told in the perspective of three different characters with three different situations and settings makes the story a little confusing when they go from scene to scene. Once each story line caught up with one another is when it got really confusing, the story lines seem to be one mush and all over the place in my opinion. As I would read and get into one character’s story, it would switch over to the next and nothing made sense. This......

Out Out

...A young man is cutting firewood with a buzz saw in New England. Near the end of the day, the boy’s sister announces that it is time for dinner and, out of excitement, the boy accidentally cuts his hand with the saw. He begs his sister not to allow the doctor to amputate the hand but inwardly realizes that he has already lost too much blood to survive. The boy dies while under anesthesia, and everyone goes back to work. Analysis Frost uses the method of personification to great effect in this poem. The buzz saw, though technically an inanimate object, is described as a cognizant being, aggressively snarling and rattling as it does its work. When the sister makes the dinner announcement, the saw demonstrates that it has a mind of its own by “leaping” out of the boy’s hand in its excitement. Frost refuses to lay blame for the injury on the boy, who is still a “child at heart.” In addition to blaming the saw, Frost blames the adults at the scene for not intervening and telling the boy to “call it a day” before the accident occurred. Had the boy received an early excuse from the workday, he would have avoided cutting off his hand and would have been saved from death. Moreover, a mere half-hour break from his job would have allowed the boy to regain part of his childhood, if only for a moment. Frost’s emphasis on the boy’s passivity and innocence in this situation is particularly significant in the context of the time period. After moving to England with his family,......

Evaluate the demand for the new service line in the market area defined in the case study. Trinity Community Hospital is in need of a new orthopedic center. The need for an orthopedic unit is expect to increase to 46%, and spine procedures are expected to increase 30%. Outpatient spine and joint procedures are expected to go up by 350%. The five year projection plan for orthopedic unit is as follows: each orthopedic surgical gross charges is projected to be $25,000, physical therapy has a gross charge of $275 per unit. Collections are projected to be around 35%, and the ratio of cost to charges is 31% (Western Governors University, n.d.). The current research indicates the current area is in need of an orthopedic center. The other two hospitals that are close to Trinity represent the biggest competition and have a good orthopedic program. The other hospitals are private, and this increases the demand for Trinity developing a good orthopedic program. Trinity is centrally located within the community, and the population is expected to grow four percent a year, the need for a good orthopedic unit at Trinity will continue to grow. Trinity has performed a needs assessment, and determined Trinity could provide orthopedic services many people within the community. The current resources that Trinity has are not enough...

To Be in or to Be Out

...Carolyn Lemon-Lewis Robert Lang English 111 11 July 2014 To Be out or To Be In “The church in the United States has strongly resisted the movement to legalize same-sex marriage, arguing that it would legitimize intrinsically evil homosexual acts (Pope Francis). The religious leaders are opposes same-sex marriage because the Bible states evidence to support their belief. Same-sex marriage on the religious perspective. There are several scripture that supports why same-sex marriage is against God. However, the first scripture: “God created man in His image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them; and God said to them,' Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth”(Genesis 1:27-28). God did not create man and man, woman and woman He created male and female to recreate the earth. How can a male and male recreate, and the Bible does not say anything about adoption. It clearly states, “be fruitful and multiply.” The very first mention of sexual immorality was when two messengers from God had come to visit Lot. All the young and old men came to Lot house and asked for the two strangers to come out, so they could do to them whatever they wanted to do, but Lot beg the crowd to take his daughters. And the angels blinded all the men young and old. This was the reason God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah,......

Out, Out-

...How does Frost create a sense of horror in his poem ‘Out, Out-‘ Frosts creates a sense of horror in his poem ‘Out, Out-‘through his use of repetition and the use of caesura and figurative speech. Frost concentrates also on the apparent innocence and passivity of the boy. "Out, Out-" is a poem by American poet Robert Frost, published in 1916. It tells the story of a young boy who dies after his hand is severed by a "saw”. This poem was apparently based on a true story. The title ‘Out, Out-‘is an allusion to William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth ‘out, out-brief candle’, it refers to how unpredictable and fragile life is like a candle is being blown out. To begin, Personification is used in line 1 personification is used to make the buzz saw more horrifying. ‘The buzz saw snarled and rattled in the yard’. This creates an image of a monster, something dangerous and has a mind of its own The use of personification continues into line 8’ as it ran or had to bear a load’ this shows the reader how destructive this buzz saw is and how effortless it is at it, this also extends the metaphor. Also in line 16 ‘leaped out at the boy’s hand, or seemed to leap-’the saw is still personified and therefore adds horror to this line, the use of the word ‘at’ is emphasized here, like a vicious creature the buzz saw leaped out at the boy’s hand, making it seem like the boy lost all control and is helpless. Also the use of caesura is particularly effective in this part of the poem as it adds......

The Line

..."The Line - Poverty in America" I really like the documentary; I think that the very first thing it wants to communicate as is that everybody in this world can become a victim of poverty. In the documentary we have the example of the banker; before he lost his job he had a good life, but after loses his job he lives under the line of poverty. We have other examples that in my opinion explain how everybody might be living under the poverty line such as single father in the suburbs who now relies on a food pantry and an aging Louisiana fisherman whose shrimp business has been devastated by the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This last case, the fisherman, a person who owns a little business fishing shrimp and his life was a comfortable life, suddenly something external of him and something in which he is not able to combat like an oil spill destroys all his business, the only way that he had to earn money, and now he doesn’t know what to do to earn some money. After all assignments about Poverty in America I realized that there is too much poverty in America that I thought. Even more that in Europe which is where I am from. However, once I realized there is more poverty in America that I thought I noticed that in the streets there are a lot more homeless in this country than in every countries in the first world. I also realized that fortunately the poverty in the world is decreasing little by little but otherwise we have a lot of work to do in order to have the......

Line Manager

...1 HR discretion: understanding line managers’ role in Human Resource Management Juan López-Cotarelo, Industrial Relations Research Unit, Warwick Business School Introduction Line managers play a central role in human resource management. In many organisations, they are charged with myriad HR-related tasks, such as filling out performance appraisal forms, interviewing candidates for employment, making salary increase recommendations and breaking employment-related news –good and bad- to employees. This paper investigates how managers carry out their HR activities. In the literature so far, the prevailing view has been that managers act primarily on behalf of the organisation, applying HR policy in ways by-and-large consistent with organisational procedures. My findings from a number of store visits at a leading UK fashion retailer, give support to a different view: that managers carry out HR activities as organisational actors who pursue a combination of organisational, departmental and individual goals. Crucial in my discussion is the concept of HR discretion. I define HR discretion as a manager’s capacity to influence his (her) team members’ HR outcomes, and their perceptions of those HR outcomes. HR discretion must be understood as a subset of overall managerial discretion 1 . Managerial discretion has been an important concept in the economics and management literatures, from very different perspectives. In economics, managerial discretion refers to the freedom managers......

"Out, Out-" Analysis by Rukhaya

...“Out,Out-“ is a miniature dramatic narrative by Robert Frost. Frost depicts the abrupt death of a young boy whose hand has been severed by a buzz-saw. “The poem was apparently based on a true story of a boy's death whilst working in New England.”(Wikpedia) The account though heart-rending is described in an objective manner by the poet. The fact that no personal comments are made on part of the poet, exemplify that he does not intend to emotionally drain the readers. Rather he intends on intellectually stimulating the readers into the inevitability of death and the futility of life. The title has been taken from Macbeth’s soliloquy in which he ruminates over the death of his wife. The hollowness and insignificance of life is hinted at in this soliloquy, by the eloquent image of the candle that mirrors the transitory nature of life: "Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing." Analysis: At the outset, the buzz-saw is shown to be snarling and rattling. The twin-sided aspects of life are echoed here .The buzz-saw at once transforms itself into the metaphor of the Giver of Life:it gives ,yet it takes. The verb ‘snarled’ echoes how it is animate, yet machine-like; human, yet devoid of emotions. The verb ‘rattled” sounds the rattle of the child and the rattle of the snake: innocence and......

...The Line There is a line across the desktop in the middle. In most primary schools, when a pair of deskmates is a boy and a girl, they will carve such a line, as inviolable as the 38th Parallel, to divide the territory. There is an invisible line in the high school refectory. Boys and girls seat themselves in two parts of the room. The line is a tacit agreement on which concurred by them. There are quite a few lines, perceptible or imperceptible, that reflect the differences between male and female in nearly all aspects of life, no matter how old they are. Language is another field that proves the existence of sexual lines. It`s so easy to notice the line between men and women when it comes to the use of language, and such kind of sex difference seems to be a reasonable choice. In her essay The Party Line, the author Rachel Rafelman starts with the gender split in party and sets out to explore the social dynamic of men and women in conversation by combining the ideas of plenty of writers, editors and friends with hers. According to her, women get personal and are more interesting than men, who limit their talking in business, in conversation. “Given a chance, everyone prefers talking to women (317)”.

A Line in the Sand

...Book Review A Line In The Sand. Randy Roberts and James S. Olson. New York: Simons and Schuster, 2001. 320. In the novel A Line in the Sand the coauthors Randy Roberts and James S. Olson discuss what they consider the three battles of the Alamo. The first battle discussed in the novel is the Texas Revolution and the events that took place on March 6, 1836. The second battle of the Alamo took place 50 years later and was intrigued by two women who preserved the sight of the Alamo as we know it today. Lastly the Alamo is discussed as a battlefield and the way people see the Alamo today in different perspectives. The purpose for this novel is to inform the general public of the facts of the Alamo from the American and Mexican perspectives. I found this book to be a very interesting but hard read and I assure you I know a lot more about the Alamo then I ever did. Olson and Roberts do a very good job on making the reader think about how they “remember the Alamo”. Roberts and Olson appear to me as very educated historians; I do not disagree with them. Both authors examine their personal views of the historic event, while Exploring through the impact that the Alamo “story” has had on today’s society. The book brings out the events in a much more “alive” way unlike they are told today. Television and movies is an impact of the writing of The Line in the Sand. As we all know most movies are either entirely made up or they make false assumption towards reality, such as the......

Out of the Cradle or Out of the Mind?

...Out of the Cradle or Out of the Mind? By Luke Niederhelman Mrs. Main English Literature and Composition 103 12 May 2015 Walt Whitman: father, husband, poet. According to the Poetry Foundation, “Whitman is regarded as one of America’s most significant nineteenth century poets.” One piece of his was written in the late 1800’s. Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking is a poem about the reminiscence of life. This poem features a boy walking along the beach and finds two mockingbirds. These birds interact with one another everyday. However, one day the female bird fails to appear, and the male cries “Out of the mocking-birds throat,” for her (Whitman 2). When the young boy hears the cry he is startled and awakened. The persona then depicts the males actions in search of her. As this happens, the startled boy recognizes the impact nature has on the human mind and his own burgeoning conscious. Whitman’s use of poetic elements allows the reader to connect to a theme of love and death. From structure and repetition, to rhythm and form, these elements serve as a framework for the relationship between the two. Many elements contribute to the theme. The first element is the structure of the poem. Whitman writes alternating the use of dactylic and trochaic meter. First, the poem begins with a dactylic meter using a long syllable followed by two short syllables: “Out of the” (Whitman 1). Secondly, a trochee is used providing a stressed syllable, followed by an...

...Business Writing Portfolio Outline Chapters 1. Cover page 2. Outline of Assignment 3. A Business Letter 4. A Business Memo 5. An E-mail Message 6. Reflection Dear Store managers: The company is writing this letter to inform every one of the new changes in the company that are effective immediately. As we all know the economy is changing and gas prices are on the rise and it is causing issues amongst our workers. In order to comply with these issues we have developed a plan to alleviate this situation. The company has decided to cut the hours of the full-time employees and managers. The store has placed them on a 10-hour, four-day work week. The store has placed the part-time workers on a minimal schedule. Their schedule will consist of one, two, or three day work week depending on the full-timer’s schedules. The stores hours of operations have also changed. We will no longer be open on Sundays. Monday through Saturday the store will open an hour later, and the store will close an hour earlier. The reasoning behind all of this is due to the downturn of the economy in addition to keeping business cost down. As a member of the team I know we must place the well-being of our workers first. Our workers are the backbone of the store, if they leave, then where would we be as a retail store. Our workers are who keep the business running. During these hard economic times, adjusting the schedules and changing hours of...
