Communication and collaboration strategy
In today’s ever accelerating pace, Communication and Collaboration are two of the major keys to a successful team. Within these skills are the need to recognize the abilities, strengths and weaknesses of others such as learning styles and personality types of which we shall touch on briefly in this writing.
Team A, of which I am a proud member, is our example victim for this discussion. According to our team charter rough draft we have three members who show strong Interpersonal learning style traits, and coincidently show the same lack of strength in the Musical style. Team A also has a member who shows strong tendencies toward the Visual-Spatial learning style and weaker Logical-Mathematical traits. Now that we know some of our learning styles we need to identify our Personality types. The team divided unevenly again having three Organizers and one Adventurer. For grading purposes I will add a thinker to the group. In order to put these styles and types together we need to know the basic characteristics of them. The learning style basic traits are,
* Seeing things from others perspective. * Cooperating within a group. * Communicating verbally and nonverbally. * Creating and maintaining relationships.
* Perceiving and forming objects accurately. * Recognizing relationships between objects. * Representing something graphically. * Manipulating images. * Finding one’s way in space.
* Sensing tonal qualities. * Creating or enjoying melodies or rhythms. * Being sensitive to sounds and rhythms. * Using “schemas” to understand music. * Understanding the structure of music.
And traits for the personality types of this discussion…...

Stem Cell Reaserch

...organ or tissue that processes the ability to renew itself, as well as differentiate into other specialized cell types. By their nature, adult stem cells aren’t as controversial as embryonic stem cells because of the way in which they can be harvested – adult stem cells are collected from an individual’s skin cells and bone marrow cell – (Lanza, 2011). Embryonic stem cells on the other hand have been the focus of government scrutiny with the passing of legislation specific to the research on these types of stem cells. On February 1, 1961 Toronto scientist Drs. Jamis Till and Ernest McCulloch published their work on the potential benefits of the use of stem cells with the treatment of cancer patients. That discovery started an increase in reaserch of stem cells which caused congress to put a ban on all federally funded fetal tissues – fetal(baby at 10 weeks) tissues is where fetal stem cells are collected from – research. That jumpstarted the United States legislation on the stem cell research, ever so often, Congress; an executive branch; and the president at that time, go back and forth on whether or not this type of research is ethical and morally correct. Over the years, the United States policy on stem cell research has been changed dramatically. It initially received great opposition but the outlooks are certainty changing as the science becomes more certain of its possibilities and benefits of the use of these cells. During the Bush administration – 2001 to 2009 –,......

...Juan Perez English 7-8 10 November 2013 A Quantum Leap in Weaponry Philosopher Jean Baudrillard once said, “Deep down, the United States, with its space and technological refinement, its bluff good conscience, even in those spaces which it opens up for simulation, is the only remaining primitive society.” No matter how much we advance technologically we will always depend on our primitive instincts. Since the beginning of humanity people have been fighting with each other. As humans evolved so did the weapons that were used. Humans have gone from throwing stones at their enemies to sending missiles half way across the globe. As our technology advances, the innovations get applied to our weapons systems, which in turn make them more efficient and effective. Since the beginning of time, man has had a necessity to accomplish things, some things were simpler than others. When things got difficult man figured out how to use whatever he could find to help accomplish his goals. These items were later known as tools. Primitive tools were made out of wood, bone, and stone (Smithsonian 15). These were the most common materials at the time. However when the time came to defend ourselves these tools became weapons. At first weapons were jagged pieces of materials, such as pieces of broken bone, broken wood and jagged rocks. These tools were held in the palm of the hand (Smithsonian 18). Eventually the tools were shaped and tied to make handling more efficient, as well as to eliminate...

Tea as Tea Bags

...recorded. It was then in 1904 that these were shipped around the world and they are infact still used until now. They are not only cheaper, but also they easier to find and to use in making tea. The reason for their more affordable price compared to loose tea leaves is because most companies use fannings or left-overs of larger tea leaves after they are gathered to be sold. Basically, this drink is made by brewing tea leaves to create an extract. Due to the chlorophylls and other pigments in the leaves, the extract commonly appears with a brown color. In, it was mentioned that the aflavin is the reddish-brown pigment found in tea. It is an example of a flavonoid which acts to create color. This reaserch is being done to find out the potency of the extract of the leaves from the plant CAMELLIS SINENSIS as an ink. Nowadays, ink is a pigment in a liquid or paste form used as colorants and dyes. Also, they are becoming more and more expensive because of their increasing purposes. Our research aims to produce this ink as a cheaper alternative to those commercial ones. Compared to the ink we are aiming to create, commercially produced inks are toxic and can be hazardous to a person’s health once there is inappropriate contact with it. To match with the color and consistency of other inks, we will be adding other substances, specifically vinegar and cornstarch, which are common and easy to find....

Reaserch Paper

...Jose Thomas Moreno page 1 Ms. Julia Simpson-Urrutia English 1A 5 September 20015 The controversies of Machiavelli Is being good all the time a bad thing? Machiavelli believed it was. He writes, “A man who wishes to make a vocation of being good at all times will come to ruin among so many who are not good”. It seems like a fair statement to me; being good among those not good may lead us to ruins. The more power we posses, the more difficult it will be to remain good. Not all agree . Lao Tzu would probably respond with an observation like, "therefore the master says let go of all desire for common good, and good becomes common as grass" (A World of Ideas pg. 211 verse 37). Unlike Machiavelli, Lao-Tzu believed in individual importance. His rhetoric is based on simplicity, patience and compassion.On the other hand, Machiavellis ideology is based on any means necessary. Today, evidence of Machiavelli's statement is everywhere. Politicians are known to be crooked, they'll promise anything it takes to get elected and once in power make up new agendas. Others have lied in order to make action available. For example, on may 29,2003 president George W Bush reported, "we found the weapons of......

...When I read “A Hologram for the King”, I noticed different aspects that I would like to develop. In my opinion, this book is about much more than just the decay of American business. It’s about the life of a poor man who tries to deal with his difficult situation. So before beginning, let’s have a short summary. Alan Clay, an ex-consultant and a victim of the Recession, is now a 54-years-old business man hired by Reliant in order to present a new technology, a holographic teleconference system, to the King Abdullah. By landing this contact, he would solve all his money problems as he is a debt?ridden man. Across the book and the wait for the king to come, Alan remembers his past and wonders about his purpose in the life. First of all, in my opinion, this story is about the nothingness both physical and psychological. On one hand, we can talk about a real physical desert because the whole story takes place in Saudi Arabia, which is not known for its luxury forests but for its small shrubs which don’t need a lot of water. More particularly, the story takes place in King Abdullah Economic City which, according to the book, comprises only three buildings. For a city-to-be, it’s a kind of desert. “The landscape was flat and blank. Anything built here, an unrelenting desert, was an act of sheer will imposed on territory unsuited for habitation.” (A Hologram for the King, p34) “They drove a mile before they arrived at a modest gate, a pair of stone arches over the road, a great......

We propose that CBT is a good fit with the values of the profession and make suggestions for areas of improvement. Keywords: cognitive-behavioral therapy, social work values, social justice, social work practice 1. Introduction In a day when evidence-based practice has become so important to the social work profession, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) has become one of the most frequently used forms of psychotherapeutic intervention.

Sox Reaserch

...Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 SE584: Forensic and Business Investigations Techniques February 22, 2009 The passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) changed how accounting is practiced and how corporations handle their accounting departments, to include auditing and internal controls. Some of these changes are for better accountability and some are for governing the application of stricter rules. The accounting profession was dramatically affected by the events leading up to and after the passing of this law. In the days before SOX, there were many high valued fraudulent activities. The news was flooded with employees, managers, and executives who were committing fraud against their investors, their organizations, or both. Millions and billions of dollars were being lost. The acts that brought about SOX began many years before its inception but were especially prevalent during the dot-com boom. These company’s executives fraudulently reported increases in revenue dollars, bringing their net income up in order to keep pace with their growth projected by analysts. The collapse of these “fast and furious” companies did not mean the last of the major fraudulent activities by executives against organizations or their investors. The 1990s was a time that saw many changes affecting business. The Internet was beginning to open more to commercial use, no more was it just for academics and the government. The age of technology that had started in the 1960s truly took off.......
