Cook in Combat

...Andy Anderson Kelly Wisdom Eng111-10D February 10, 2011 Cooks in Combat “I’ve gotta bad feeling about this.” said my platoon Staff Sargent Mark Pegher as we listened to the convoy commander review the route plan via dirt map. We had been in Balad, Iraq for about two months moving supply patrols from our logistical storage area to an observation base a few miles away. It was a trip we had made a dozen times by then. Yet, that comment foreshadowed a very unusual day for the cooks of HHC 1-77 Armor Battalion. The planned route was going to be MSR Tampa. This was an eight mile military supply route, which had been our primary travel road on previous missions. It was well known by us, as well as by insurgents. The explosive ordinance disposal team had patrolled the road most of the night and had cleared it before our departure time. We had only been in country for a few weeks; the armor for our vehicles had not yet been mounted, making the threat of an attack slightly more alarming. But, even with the mention of Sergeant Pegher’s little premonition, it did little to discourage myself and Spc. Todd Nelson from arguing over who would be the driver in our five ton supply truck during this mission. There were a lot of important things that went into planning a mission like this. For non-combat types, deciding who would be in the driver and passenger seat could be priority decision. It was always a well fought debate. It had its pros and cons. Being a driver......

Case Study-What Ever Happened to Planning and Control

...Case Study Assign: What ever happened to planning and Control Gloria Gilmore Westwood College – Blackboard Professor Carol Mayfield Principles of Supervision November 03, 2012 1. When the meeting was held regarding the renovation, Greenberg failed to mention of the isles being moved as part of the reorganization planning process to Sanchez. Also, the construction supervisor and the reset crew supervisor failed to initiate proper submission of paperwork for the moving of the isles for store 16. Sanchez failed to ask about the project to Ms. Sanchez. There was inefficient communication and planning on all parties to this situation. 2. Greenberg and Sanchez should cancel and reschedule the carpenters to come at a more appropriate time. The store still needs to be run in an orderly fashion. In addition, they should plan ahead for risk management so that this situation does not occur again. The district manager should have gotten input from the whole group and decided as to who does what and how it will be done prior to the ending of the meeting. A Gant chart would have been very useful, in addition to proper delegation of responsibilities so that each individual would have been held liable for. 3. The major concern is that the entire reorganization was not properly thought out and planned. The MBO should have been implemented and taken into consideration. This would have minimized possible risks of hazards and lawsuits.......

Why Cook

...| Why Cook? | | | Brian Curtis Maureen DattiloDVUO ENG135 Sec I | 6/5/2010 | | With all the choices of “ready prepared meals”, fast food, take out, and delivery it is easy to ask the question “Why should I cook my own meals?” While one might think that cooking can only get dinner on the table, one might also be wrong. The foods we eat play a crucial role in how our mind and body operate. Through cooking one can make smarter decisions to fuel the mind and body properly, while eliminating deficiencies that can cause an imbalance in the nutrients that are needed for healthy life. Not only is food a detrimental factor to health, it also has deep roots into our social world. Everyone has a fond memory of home cooked meals shared over the dinner table, or pleasant times with friends enjoying a nice meal. These fond memories help build bonds that create our social life and help make us who we are. By cooking meals and sharing them with the people that are important in life it is easy to see that cooking, besides getting dinner on the table, can benefit not only your physical and mental health but also contributes to your social life. Health benefits One of the most obvious benefits to cooking is a healthier life. Instead of eating already prepared foods that are loaded with additives, cooking allows a person to eat food in its natural state. Starting from natural foods eliminates unwarranted ingredients from being introduced to your diet that can have......

To What Extent Are ‘Big Businesses’ Poor at Contingency Planning?

...To what extent are ‘big businesses’ poor at contingency planning? Contingency plans are made to deal with unplanned events such as natural and crises such as floods, fire, system failures or fatalities. For businesses this will be dependent on size or industry area, for example a small shop owner will have a different range of contingency plans to say that of a national bank. A contingency plan is generally made prior to a project taking place and forms part of the formal corporate planning process. Its two main aims being to firstly try and foresee any potential risks that are faced within the course of a projects life, and secondly it sets out guidelines to be followed in the event of any such event actually take place. Large businesses take these precautions generally as standard as in the process of projects, in the short run contingency planning may be costly to the businesses but in the long run it can save the business a lot of money in the event of such crisis. Small businesses often lack the resources and capital to undertake such thorough planning, often this leads to negative consequences for these businesses. When undertaking contingency planning businesses will use ‘SWOT matrix’ analysis, weighing up the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to carrying out a venture. By doing so businesses will firstly decide whether or not the plan is viable enough to carry on, after this it allows them to delve into what potential problems or threats and the......

To What Extent Can Planning and Preparedness Mitigate the Effects of Volcanic Hazards?.

...To what extent can planning and preparedness mitigate the effects of volcanic hazards? A hazard is a situation that poses a level of threat to life, health, property, or environment. There is a very big difference that helps prepare for a volcanic hazard and that is whether you are in a MEDC or a LEDC. In a MEDC monitoring volcanic zones and potential hazards is an option many LEDC’s don’t have. In Italy at Mt Etna they have Geochemical monitoring programs currently run by INGV which focus on the analysis of temporal changes, chemical changes and seismic activity. This option open to the Italians is not an option for LEDC who don’t have the wealth or public education to set up these stations. An example of an LEDC with no planning and prevention plans is Mount Pinatubo- Philippines, Its last eruption in 1991 was completely unplanned for. Mt Etna has a history of fairly frequent eruptions, all of which came with impacts on the surrounding area. Socially the town of Zafferana Etnea was threatened by the largest volume of lava in hundreds of years, this can also be seen as an economic impact. In 2002 a huge column of ash was thrown up from the biggest eruption in recent years and was deposited as far away as Libya. Seismic activity associated with these eruptions caused the eastern flanks of the volcano to slip by 2m, causing structural damage to many houses. Lava flows completely destroyed the tourist station at piano Provenzana and part of the tourist station at Rifugio......

To What Extent Can Preparedness and Planning Mitigate the Effects of Volcanic Hazards

...K – 2 (up); C/U – 2 (up); C/S – 3 (down); Syn – 3 (down); Q – 3 = 22 marks January 2012 To what extent can preparedness and planning mitigate the effects of volcanic hazards? Preparedness and planning can mitigate the effects of volcanic hazards. However there are many other factors that can influence the effects, such as volcano type, severity of eruption, length of eruption, third party influences of which no country can prepare totally for. However these are methods which will reduce the impact. In this essay I will discuss the impacts of a Chilean volcanic eruption which devastated the town of Chaiten and how its poor preparation influenced this. Also I will discuss the 1991 eruption of Mount Etna in Sicily and how its preparedness and planning has on it as one of the world’s best monitored and controlled volcanoes. On the 2nd May 1991 a Chilean volcano that had laid dormant for nearly 9000 years exploded into eruption. Due east winds carried the huge ash column east. However due to the size of the column (20-30 km in height) the town of Chaiten, 10km south west of the volcano, was largely affected. Due to its 9000 years of dormancy, the Chilean volcanic society had not deemed it dangerous enough to be actively monitored prior to the eruption as limited research and funding was available to their one volcanic acquisition centre even though there was documented history of dome column building and collapse. The rhyolitic nature of the volcano (commonly found on......

However, in today’s Turkey, especially in big cities, people’s eating habit is worsening day by day. In the past our mothers were the ones who take the all responsibility in the kitchen. While our fathers were working and bringing home food, our mothers (or the women in the house) were cooking everything for us. We weren’t worrying about what we ate. However, this tradition is now changing. Especially in big cities like İstanbul, and especially with the new generation, women have joined the workforce. Most of the young women now working as many hours in a day...

To What Extent Can Preparedness and Planning Mitigate the Effect of Earthquakes

...To what extent can preparedness and planning mitigate the effects of earthquakes? Whittow in 1980 defines a hazard as a “perceived natural event which has the potential to threaten both life and property, and a disaster is the realisation of this hazard.” Earth hazards can therefore include all natural events including earthquakes, volcanoes, flooding and mass movement. Due to the very nature of these events “mitigating” (measures taken to reduce the impacts of a hazard beforehand) can be more successful for hazards such as volcanoes which are arguably more predicable than earthquakes and flash flooding. Despite the advances over the past few decades there is no “magic bullet” (Dr Charles Connor) in earth hazard prediction, and therefore mitigation – and the success remains very much dependent upon a number of factors including money available, and the number of vulnerable individuals. Firstly, earthquakes, which are caused by sudden movements of the earth’s crust which result in violent shaking, liquefaction, and in extreme cases tsunamis, can to an extent be prepared for and mitigated for, and this is where money is being channelled into. Preparation and planning involves the retrofitting of buildings to create “earthquake-resistant” societies, aseismic design features (including concrete and steel frames to provide stability), as well as planning exclusion zones and evacuation routes in the case of an earthquake. Earthquake prediction is very closely linked to preparedness...

To What Extent Can Preparedness and Planning Mitigate the Effects of a Volcanic Hazard?

...A volcanic hazard was defined by Whittow in 1980 as a “perceived natural event which has the potential to threaten both life and property, and a disaster is the realisation of this hazard.” To reduce the effects of these hazards planning and preparation can take place. This involves the government educating their population, putting in place plans for evacuation for example and putting in place laws and building codes to build safe homes and communities to allow for easy escape and access. Volcanic hazards can be more easily planned for than earthquakes, as there are visible signs recorded by observations and various instruments. An example is the tiltmeters which were successfully used in the prediction of six eruptions of Mt St Helens between June 1981 and August 1982. This allows volcanologists to predict when a volcano may erupt and thus set into action any evacuation plans. Mt St Helens also used gas and steam monitors by measuring carbon dioxide levels which gives evidence of magma rising to the surface; this can help to predict the material produced during an eruption and the direction of lava flows. Italy is an MEDC and has a large GDP per capita of $36,000, this means they can put in place a large number of measures to protect areas such as building artificial channels to divert lava flows away from villages and towns such as Zafferana. This reduced the damage to infrastructure caused by the 2001 eruption and prevented loss of lives. Monitoring of the volcano by......

What Is Strategy Planning

...What is strategic planning?  Strategic planning is a management tool, period. As with any management tool, it is used for one purpose only: to help an organization do a better job - to focus its energy, to ensure that members of the organization are working toward the same goals, to assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment. In short, strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. (Adapted from Bryson's Strategic Planning in Public and Nonprofit Organizations). A word by word dissection of this definition provides the key elements that underlie the meaning and success of a strategic planning process: The process is strategic because it involves preparing the best way to respond to the circumstances of the organization's environment, whether or not its circumstances are known in advance; nonprofits often must respond to dynamic and even hostile environments. Being strategic, then, means being clearr bout the organization's objectives, being aware of the organization's resources, and incorporating both into being consciously responsive to a dynamic environment.  The process is about planning because it involves intentionally setting goals (i.e., choosing a desired future) and developing an approach to achieving those goals.  The process is disciplined in that it calls for a certain......
