Assessment on Family Quality of Life

....WHAT IS QUALITY OF LIFE AND HEALTH-RELATED QUALITY OF LIFE? A REVIEW OF THE CONCEPTS AND SOME ATTEMPTS AT MEASUREMENT Quality of life research, then, spans a range of topics, from quality of life in the last year of life (Lawton et al. 1990) to quality of life in urban environments (Rogerson et al. 1989). As was illustrated earlier, quality of life is an amorphous concept, that has a usage across many disciplines -- geography, literature, philosophy, health economics, advertising, health promotion and the medical and social sciences (e.g. sociology and psychology). It is a vague concept; it is multidimensional and theoretically incorporates all aspects of an individual's life. Quality of life has also been defined as the `output' of the inputs of the physical and the spiritual (Liu 1974); as the degree to which a person accomplishes life goals (Cella and Cherin 1987); and even quantified crudely as a formula in which quality of life (QL) is a product of one's natural endowment (NE) and the effort made on one's behalf by the family (H) and society (S), such that QL ]] NE ]] H ]] S (Shaw 1977). The meaning of the concept of quality of life is thus arguably dependent on the user of the term, his or her understanding of it, and his or her position and agenda in the social and political structure (Edlund and Tancredi 1985): `Quality of life is a vague and ethereal entity, something that many people talk about, but which nobody very clearly knows what to do about'......

...Colie Carlson Technical writing 4th period 5-1-13 10 year reflection essay Well in the past ten years I have been going to schooling to become a veterinarian technician and an equine trainer. In those years that I have been doing so I have traveled around the country quite a lot. I am really excited to be seeing everyone again mostly all of the people I hung out with during school. For the first while after I left school I went to college to become a veterinarian technician it took me a while to figure out what I was doing and how hard it was going to be for me. After the first year of schooling I got into the hang of things and became better and learned at lot from the schooling I had to do. Then after that going into the equine trainer schooling was easier for me because I already knew the anatomy of the horses and everything that was medical I just needed to learn how to train them. After I finished all of that I was paid a lot of money to travel across the country to train peoples horses and go to clinics to teach people how to get a better connection with their horse and how to help train their horse themselves. Traveling the country was fun but I missed where I came from I haven't been able to come back here until now because of work. I really missed all of you because I missed all of the memories that we shared. Spending time with everyone and causing trouble for each other. I remember that I loved going to school just to see my friends because I......

Self-Assessment Essay

...Bonnie Costa Self-assessment Essay February 6, 2013 Based upon my personality profile information, my strengths are that I am an efficient multi-tasker. I have a high energy level and enjoy working with people, as opposed to handling a task on my own. I am a very social individual but am able to work individually on projects when required. I am a very considerate, caring person and will go out of my way to help co-workers, family members, and friends. My older daughter has two young sons. In between running a house, going to school, and working 30 hours a week for Verizon, I always make time to have the boys sleep over once or twice a week, and I occasionally babysit when both parents are working Also, I enjoy helping people I don't know. For example, if I see a stranger taking a photograph of his wife and/or family, I'll approach him and ask if I can take a picture on his camera of all of their family together. I have done this on scenic bridges, at the beach, and at sporting events. Being the photographer in my family, I know how happy I am to have a group shot with me in there too! People are always very happy and receptive when I offer to do this for them! I find joy in the simple pleasure of helping to make other peoples' lives just a little bit easier. Making lists and generally being organized are two of my strong points. I was an executive secretary before raising my family; that was the most enjoyable and fulfilling job in my varied career.......

Water Life Task 1 Essay

...E-Business Water Life Task 1 Dwalyn Morgan Western Governors University A1. Viability of Product or Service For the last forty two years Water Life has been one of the best “America’s Premium Water”, companies in the United States. Water Life has numerous products and services from water filtration systems for businesses, and even having bottled water delivered at a home’s doorstep for the convenience of families. The success of the water bottle and the freestanding bottled water systems has been the initial footprint for decades for this growing company, but the company has a new product that is in need of more expansion on its Water Life’s two-year-old website. The name of the new product is called, “Point-of-Use Water Cooler Systems” or also known as “POU Water Cooler System”. This product has various benefits such as the following: saving money from buying water bottles, eliminating shortages of running out of clean water, and lowering back injury risks for the employees who deliver heavy five-gallon water jugs to a consumer’s home. Water life started the initial transition to an online website two years ago in order to spread their product and services information rapidly to gain more marketing advantages. The company received good feedback from the customers on their website, but they did not even notice the new product that was launched a few months after the implantation of the new website. That being said, in order to expand the new product, I propose......

Task 10

...Task 10 Task 10 To: Shareholders of Hot Fashions From: Naina Mushtaq 10/11/2013 HOT FASHIONS BUSINESS REPORT Return On Capital Employed= 53.18% Return on capital employed (ROCE) is the ratio of net operating profit of a company to its capital employed. It measures in percentage terms whatever the net profit is generated to overall value of the company in terms of capital employed. In the case of hot fashions, they have managed to generate a return on their capital employed of 53.18% net profit in one year. The business had a great strength as their return on capital employed is over 50%. For a business to gain more than 50% in one year is a could sign. This is due to bigger businesses such as next had a return of capital of 68% in a year and Hot Fashions is a small business and nearly reached to Nexts PLC’s return of capital employed. As well as, the return of capital employed for a clothing sector is 15%, and Hot Fashions business had a massive increase than that which displays they have done very well. However, the business should try a bit harder and aim to reach next percentage of 68%, although they’re a small business. Gross Profit Margin= 38.88% Gross profit margin measures how well a company controls its cost. The business looks at the proportion of money left over from revenues after accounting for the cost of goods sold. It shows us; every £1.00 made in sales how much is left...

Assessment Essay

...A Thank You to Liz Writing has never been one of my strong points in school or life. I knew taking English 101 was going to be a challenge, especially considering I haven’t been in school for fifteen years. Turns out, the class isn’t as bad as I thought it might be. In fact English is one of my more enjoyable subjects this semester. The primary reason for this enjoyment is because of my wife Liz. She is currently pursuing her master’s in English and has a great deal of knowledge on the subject. Liz’s help in several aspects of my writing is the reason I have done so well. Here are a few examples of this help. One of the major aspects of writing Liz has helped me with is brainstorming. She would sit down with me and read the essay topic and instructions. Then we would begin to gather a list of ideas on the topic. Next we would discuss each topic and decide whether or not to keep it. Liz is very good with giving pros and cons on why to use or not use an idea. In the end we would narrow my list down to one idea to use. This brainstorming help gave me a great start to most of my essays. Another aspect that Liz helped me with is sentence structure. I sometimes write sentences that are awkward or to “wordy” as she says. Here is an example from the rough draft of this essay: “Now factor in that I haven’t been in school for fifteen years and you can probably see why I dreaded the idea of taking English 101.” Now read the second sentence of the opening paragraph......

China in the Next 10 Years

...China’s Economic Slowdown : A special advantage for foreign MBA graduates China, one the fastest growing economies in the world, is approaching an economic slowdown. Bad News? Actually not, this will result in an increasing demand for cross cultural managerial talent. In the essay I will help you understand how you can equip yourself for this changing trend that will unfold in the next decade. The Asian economies are not able to grow and build as major economies because of not bringing inclusiveness in the systems. The issue is becoming a great deterrent in making people from all walks of life as ultimate beneficiaries. Many countries in Asia have experienced impressive rates of economic growth over the last two decades. However, the fruits have not been widely shared with every deserving stakeholder from the society. The rich poor divide is increasing in the Asian countries. Inequality can be counter-productive to sustaining long-term growth. Over the past few decades China has been the fastest growing economy, with an astonishing GDP growth of 9.8% per annum. The financial epicenter has shifted towards China, and the 'far east' has clearly proved that it cannot be left 'far' behind. Although, it is argued that in the next decade China's exponential growth might slow down or even halt. This is a major change that strategists foresee. In such times, there will be a paradigm shift towards consumerism in China, and a substantial decrease in production and exports.......

Personal Communicatin and Life Skills Assessment Essay

...Rybecca Ruffin HD 205 Section 1 9/9/14 Communication is such an important part of everyday life, and is used in literally every situation you could think of. We use communication in almost every aspect of our everyday lives, with family, friends, acquaintances, professors, strangers, and even animals. Without communication, it would be hard to get very far in life, let alone even get through a regular day. It is how we express our needs and concerns, how we understand what others are saying, and how we discuss things. When it comes to communicating with other people, everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, things they can teach others, and things they would like to improve on. Communication is a way to listen to others thoughts and ideas, as well as express your own. Because of this, it comes in handy that my greatest strength in communication is that I am not afraid to be completely myself, and I encourage other people to be themselves also. I like who I am and I think that it is okay to be proud of your ideas and to want to share them with others. I am not ashamed of my own opinion, and I am also comfortable enough with myself and my views to be open-minded towards other people’s views. I like to hear other people’s points of view, as I feel that it can make you a more knowledgeable, cultured person, and to think that your point of view is the only correct one is ignorant. Along with being non-judgmental towards others, I feel that it is very important to......

Firstly an explanation of Bill C-10 will be provided to understand what changes will be made to the Criminal code and who it affects.

Radio in 10 Years

The radio has evolved from the in house entertainment to the best free platform available to the driving listener. Cities like Dallas, Los Angeles and New York City have hundreds of stations being transmitted that are broadcasting everything from talk, to sports, or even the obvious choice of most listeners, music. And more and more cultures are being included into these networks. You can find all kinds of different language and culture related stations among the broad spectrum of radio like Spanish, Chinese and even German in some parts of the country. Many people have been attempting to speculate that radio will be voided out in the future, but radio has been the platform to broadcast music and talk shows. The concepts that made radio what it is today is what keeps radio on top. The free available network of radio is going to be very hard to remove from the entertainment business. Unless the Internet is going to become a free entity to the United States and the rest of the world, radio will continue to be the best way for people to get a non visual entertainment.
