Let’s all try to Relax

Stress is a word that is known a little too well in the world today. Most stresses come from financial or family problems, but people overlook one of the main reasons stress lingers through the day, and that is through their jobs. Job stress can be completely avoidable if the right measures are taken, but when ignored can lead to serious medical problems including depression and other health risks. Some of the facts that I will be going over are; Companies who eliminate stress from the work place, health risks from companies who do not, and the outcome that comes from practicing these two different theories. People today get so stressed out over things that could be easily solved, or just be eliminating some of the work that is put on their plate. If we could try to eliminate some of the work stress it may help boost employee health, and even absenteeism. If stress still lingers at jobs, the risks could be fatal, and could have very well been avoided. According to Diane Brady, a writer from Bloomsburg Business week, some companies are taking the proper precautions in eliminating stress from their employees at work. One example of a company that she used was Bank of America. Which just issued a memo advising their employees to take a minimum of four weekend days off per month. This shows that the company really does care about their employees, and wants to try to eliminate their work stress form them, and to have just some days to relax with their friends and families. Brady also talks about how the major source of stress on workers in the U.S. is the worry of data about the costs of being stressed and sleep deprived. You are more likely to get into a car crash, drink too much, blow a meeting, have family problems, and fall to a health issue like a heart attack. She also discusses a topic called, “Secondhand stress,” which…...

Let America Be America

...be. Everything will revolve around a poem called “Let America be America Again”`, by: Langston Hughes. “Let America be America again. - Let it be the dream it used to be. Let it be the pioneer on the plain. - Seeking a home where he himself is free. Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed - Let it be that great strong land of love Where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme - That any man be crushed by one above.” In this section the author is introducing the idea that America isn’t what it used to be. America was simple a great dream like pioneers on the plain. It seems like the author is saying that America has changed to something that is unfamiliar and new to society. America was a place of love and romance; a place where no king was up to schemes or no man was better than another. “O, let my land be a land where Liberty - Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath, But opportunity is real, and life is free, - Equality is in the air we breathe. (There's never been equality for me, - Nor freedom in this "homeland of the free.")” By the author saying “let my land be a land where Liberty – Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath”. The author is saying give everyone the opportunity to live the American way and not have double standards for certain race or groups of people. Let Americans live the good American way without judgments or harsh radical. The opportunity for freedom is available for all people that walk on the land of freedom.......

Let They Play

...August 25, 2010 Let Them Play By Jane Ching Fung ”What is 'Choice Time?,'" she demanded. "Students don’t have time to play." My heart sank when I heard these words coming from the mouth of a district administrator. Everyone on our kindergarten team had included "Choice" minutes in her daily schedule. Choice was a time for students to engage in centers and activities that were not teacher directed, assigned, or graded but intentionally designed to be open-ended, student driven, and to promote unstructured interactions among the children. Dare I say that "Choice" was time set aside for our young students to play? Since when did the word "play" become outlawed in kindergarten? I remember a time when kindergarten classrooms were stocked with wooden blocks, paint, and dramatic-play corners complete with costuming, furniture, appliances, and play food. Not so long ago, there was a period during the day when we encouraged kindergarten students to freely explore, create, and interact with the materials and people around them. On the surface, children may appear to be only "having fun" during this unstructured time, but take a closer look and you’ll discover what I know: Play is so much more than idle entertainment. Play, including the ability to make your own choices, helps children develop and use essential social-emotional and academic-learning skills. Through play, I have seen my students develop social, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities in a safe,......

...Hard influence tactics because he has access to all the relevant information. b Hard influence tactics involve using approaches such as ordering people or punishing them for not agreeing with you. Job describes talking with people and letting the best idea win (even when it isn’t his idea), that is a soft influence tactic so b is the correct response. 7. Some would argue that Jobs engages in indirect (remote) control of his staff. Evidence for this in the video includes: u. The use of self-managed teams, v. Assembly line work, w. The delegation of work, x. a and c. d Remote control is when followers don’t realize they are being influenced by the leader. Jobs talks about setting up self-managed teams to undertake projects. The team members don’t realize that by using a team-based approach, he is influencing their behaviour. D is the correct response. Delegation is also a form of remote control but Jobs does not discuss using this and Assembly line work is a form of direct control. 8. Jobs says that teamwork is central to the way Apple operates. This suggests that: y. Staff never see, know or feel Job’s power and never understand the depth of their conflict of interests z. Jobs is forcing people to do what he wants even though he is unaware of this, {. Staff knowingly allow Jobs to exercise power over them in return for material and non-material rewards, |.

...to set the initial state of the object. * Use the resources by accessing the type’s members. * At last CLEAR THE MEMORY. Inheritance Terminology * One of the key features of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) languages is inheritance. Inheritance is the ability to use all of the functionality of an existing class, and extend those capabilities without re-writing the original class. Prior to the availability of Microsoft® Visual Basic® .NET, Visual Basic programmers did not have this capability. In Visual Basic .NET, you are able to inherit from classes that ship in the Microsoft .NET Framework, as well as from classes that you create. In this document, you will learn how to use inheritance, and see how it can significantly cut down your programming time. * Before we delve too deeply into this topic, let's define a few terms. A new class that is created by inheritance is sometimes called a child class or a subclass. The class you originally inherited from is called the base class, parent class, or the superclass. In some OOP languages, a base class may inherit from more than one base class. This means that if you had a Person class and a Car class, a Driver class might inherit all of the properties and methods from each of these two classes. In the .NET world, only single inheritance is allowed, so each subclass will have only one base class. * There are three types of inheritance that .NET supports: implementation, interface, and visual. Implementation......

Lets Move

...Let’s Move Campaign Twinkies, Dunkin Donuts, Supersized fries, X box and Play Station Games, are all staples of today’s youth. These staples are causing an alarming problem in the youth of America. In the past 3 decades childhood obesity rates have tripled according to the United States Government website on the Lets Move campaign. In fact studies show that obesity in African American children and Hispanic children is almost at a staggering 40 percent. This alarming fact has caused First Lady Michelle Obama to make eliminating childhood obesity her number objective during the President’s term. Mrs. Obama launched on February 9, 2010 the “Let’s Move” program, a dedicated program to get kids off the couch and become more active and to eat healthier. With many young Americans faced with obesity, the goal of Lets Move is to promote a healthier life style in a younger generation. Studies as reported on the Center of Disease control show that if a child is obese early in life they will be more than likely obese as an adult. Obesity as reported in numerous websites is the leading cause for diabetes, heart problems and certain cancers. No one can pinpoint the exact cause of why more children are obese. Theories including; less school activity at recess and gym, larger portions of foods, less eating at home, no after school playing are some of the reasons cited for the problem. These current trends if left unchecked will only cause a greater problem for generations to come....

Let There Be Death

...Let there be death xxxxxx BCOM/275 July xxxxxx xxxxxxx Let there be death The death penalty has been a great controversy over the years. Many people do not agree with the death penalty at all. I believe that whatever horrible crime that someone has done should have that crime done onto them. One example is when a grown man rapes a little child; I would make sure he gets castrated. I would want him to remember what happened to the little child and how wrong he was. Lethal Injection Lethal injection is an easy way out but Mr. Cuomo states “True life imprisonment is a more effective deterrent than capital punishment.” (Cuomo, 2011) I do not agree with this; life in prison means they get to eat three hot meals, get exercise, watch cable television, sleep in a bed, have internet access and take showers all on the tax payer’s dime. It is so much scarier to me that I would get the death penalty and cease to be on this earth than to have life in prison. They have more than an elderly person in a nursing facility. Even in the bible it says to give these people the death punishment. “In Genesis 9:6, God told Noah that the penalty for intentional murder should be death: “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.” [ (Mohler, 2014) ]. This is something that I feel very strongly about and is something I believe to be true. “In the simplest form, the Bible condemns murder and calls for the death of the......

Did Wolsey Generally Try to Achieve Justice for All

...The three sources do suggest that Wolsey did genuinely try to achieve justice in his time as Lord Chancellor. However, they do not conclusively say it was ‘for all’. The first source suggests that high on Wolsey’s list of priorities was serving ‘just and equality’. However he would not be negative regarding the matter but it is also important to note that in such an important piece of text Wolsey would not be able to make strong claims which he could not back up. Source 2 could be interpreted two ways. On one hand the fact that bakers are asking for Wolsey’s support implying that they believed him to be fair and grant them their ‘remedy’ for the wrongdoing they have fallen victim of. Another way of looking at it is that Wolsey favoured the poor and that is why they asked for his help. Confirming the fact that he favoured the poor is source 3. He apparently ‘punished the rich’. This does come from an upper class perspective however and Wolsey giving the poor any kind of privilege would be frowned upon by the rich. One factor that all three sources agree on is that Wolsey would go against law and tradition if it meant being more just. The second source shows this by showing that when the law is acting unjustly, ‘the mayor sent them to Newgate gaol for 11 days’, Wolsey is the man that people would expect to help them. This contrasts with the traditional approach because men such as the Mayor and Alderman should have their way without interference if it meant exploiting the......

Lets Get Practical

...Lets Get Practical In today’s graduating high school class everyone thinks the same. They are required to do just about everything the same. Students are not taught to think outside the box. By the time they leave high school they are not an individual yet. Yes, they can write a paper but it isn't their own thought. Yes they can spend money, but do they know how to manage and save it. Because of the lack of outside world knowledge, high school should shift to a more practical and individualized curriculum. It would benefit the high school students to learn more practical things because, they need to learn the everyday tasks that are required as adults. When students graduate, most if not all do not know how to balance a checkbook, manage a bank account, or even know how to budget. They need to be taught how to resit the never ending urge to buy something they know they do not need. A money management class will teach them how to be responsible with their money and teach them the benefits of saving. If I had of learned these tools while in high school, I would most likely have a car and my license by mid summer. But because I lack in these traits I will have to save and wait until next march to drive. If they are taught these things they will not have to face the burden of feeling and being unprepared for life. By teaching them time management there would be fewer mistakes made. They would have the proper time to be able to process their thoughts, and write them down......

How to Relax

...ever come home from a hard day of work and/or school and all you want to do is relax, but you are just not sure how? Well, there are simply numerous ways to just kick back and unwind. Everyone should allow themselves time to rest. Many people have different ways of relaxing. Fishing, going shopping, driving, listen to music, and reading a book are only a few of the many ways people choose to relax. I, however, will explain the process of one of the simplest and most popular ways to relax. Not much is needed for this almost effortless process. There are a few essentials, though, to make your time of tranquility a success. First of all you will need comfortable clothes. They should be garments that you wear around the house or clothes that you sleep in, but nothing that is too tight or uncomfortable. Loosely worn clothing is definitely preferable. Secondly, you also need your favorite snack foods, and a nice, cold drink of your choice. Third of all, a big comfy couch is necessary for this process. If you do not have a couch, a perfect substitute would be a big lazy boy chair that you can kick your feet up on. Also, you will need one of your favorite movies, VCR, and a television. Your movie choice should be based on content. A horror movie most likely will not help you relax. A soft comedy or romance is your best bet. Last of all, and most importantly, you will need time. You need to find time from your busy schedule to relax. A couple of hours of your time will ensure your......

Try Try Try Again

..."If at first you don't succeed try, try and try again." Robert the Bruce, king of Scotland, is meant to have told his troops this shortly before walloping the English at Bannockburn in 1314. The idiom, said to have been inspired by a humble spider stoically weaving his web as Bruce hid from his English pursuers in a cave, is particularly appropriate too for the modern residents of Annan, ancestral home of the Bruce lineage, who have erected a statue of the king – after a 130-year delay. When the town hall was constructed on Annan's high street in the 19th century, a plinth was placed above the entrance for a planned statue of Bruce, Lord of Annandale. But financial problems meant it was never commissioned. Two years ago a local committee began fundraising and a £2m bronze likeness has been put in place. A dedication service will be staged on Friday. Some £40,000 was raised to help complete the 250kg statue. Committee secretary Roderick McCallum said he was pleased the town had recognised the role of the king. "The Bruces became Lords of Annandale having been gifted this land by a previous king – basically, I think, to help to pacify the natives," he said. Their first castle was also built in Annan, near to where the town hall stands. Mr McCallum added that erecting the statue would "correct the deficit" from more than a century ago. The statue was produced by artist Andrew Brown, originally from Port William, who said the work presented a number of......

Lets Fire All Managers

...three weeks ago I read a very interesting article. Already title is caching our attention : “First, Let's Fire All the Managers”. Intriguing start changes in the list of charges against the modern management system. The author is showing his critic for complicated system, where we have hundreds of managers in various level. He lists three main problems. As first is the costs of management which is very expensive. At second he shows that typical management hierarchy increases the risk of “calamitous” decisions with bad judgment. And as third multitiered management structure systematically disempowers lower-level employees. For all this three he is giving examples to make sure that readers will understand the problem. After that there is a lot of information about how this system is working and how the place of work is organized. So now we have question. Wouldn’t it be great if we could achieve high levels of coordination without a supervisory superstructure? To confirm theory author is giving very strong arguments by describing new management model called self-management which is in use at American company Morning Star. There are no employees, there are only “colleagues” which are taking personal responsibility for what they have done. And each person is at the same level. So if there is any problem other colleagues going to help to resolve it. There are no managers all the decision are made in the group of employees : “Around here, nobody’s your boss and everybody’s your......

...Explosive tendonitis is an injury that occurs when a bone is fractured and heals over a tendon, pinching the tendon causing an explosive pain every time the tendon is used. This research was aimed at identifying the prevention and treatment of the injury. Two periodical articles, one book, one encyclopedia, and one internet site were used to research this topic. The injury is rare, but may occur in any athlete where a stress fracture can occur near a tendon. Introduction Stress fractures can occur in most athletics and several different bones. This injury can be caused by a blow to the bone by a significant force, but mostly occurs to a bone that is repeatidly struck or overused. According to Stevensonburg (2006) "Sixty-eight percent of all stress fracture occur in runners and sprinters and sports that require a high volume of either activity" (p. 37). Stevensonburg (2006) also stated "Stress fractures can be prevented by a steady and easy increase in the stated activities so that bones can grow to meet the high demand that the athlete is trying to reach. In order for the injury to heal, activity on that particular bone must be limited to little or none. Explosive tendonitis occurs when the tendon is pressed into the bone where the tendon may become cought in the crack enough so that it becomes pinched into the bone. Method Several pieces of literature were researched to describe this injury, written in the last five years by medicle doctors and certified athletic......
