I agree with Dr. Galician that relationships are portrayed in the media unrealistic and harmful in our real lives. This is because the couples really believe that the love story videos are shown as true love really happening in those videos. Couples get impacted by those videos a lot. Specially, those couples who are missing love in their marriage lives. Watching those unrelenting videos on media, can create a rift in couple lives. It is because they expect the similar kinds of unrealistic love too, which is shown on Media. In literature, there are many love stories on love. For example, Romeo and Juliet, Paris and Helena, and Paolo and Francesca. From all these stories, the most common example of love was well known l described in Literature was Romeo and Juliet. Romeo and Juliet were the most famous lovers ever. Those couples became a synonym for love itself. In literature, that true love story was written by William Shakespeare. It’s a story of two teenagers from two fighting families who fall in love with each other at first sight and then get married. Both couples, chose to take their lives away for true love. To take your own life for your husband or wife is definitely a sign of true love. Their "untimely deaths" ultimately bond their fighting households. Media has played a big role in making people believe that whatever has come on TV is true. People believe that uretic and fake love which media shows happens in real life as well. The one of the biggest example on love Media has shown us the Movie called Titanic. In that movie, people fell in love with each other during an unhappy voyage. It was unhappy because the boat titanic was about to sink. Some people believe that love can happen during an unhappy voyage as well. This sort of thinking can create complications in couple lives.

Getting to Know the Church Fathers

...GETTING TO KNOW THE CHURCH FATHERS An Evangelical Introduction JoHanna Gilyard-Woodward History of Christianity 1 CHHI 520 July 20, 2012 Getting to Know the Church Fathers: An Evangelical Introduction By Bryan M. Litfin: BrazosPress, 2007, pp301 softback. Bryan M. Litfin at the writing of this book states that he earns his living as “a professor whose academic expertise is the early church fathers” (p.7). He is a husband and an associate professor of theology at Moody Bible Institute. He summarizes himself by saying that he is one who has been “taught to think like a Christian; taught to think like a scholar; and taught to think like a catholic” (p. 7). Litfin begins and ends this book with an overall theme and challenge to see how the church fathers impacted the Christian church and the life of an individual Christian on the whole. Secondary to the overall theme he lays out three misconceptions with regards to the church fathers, (1) the church fathers were not biblical; (2) the ancient church fathers were Roman Catholics; and (3) the church fathers represent the “fall” of Christianity (pp. 20-25 & pp. 255-257), and through the ten church fathers discussed in his book he seeks to prove how those misconceptions have misled some individuals. As he introduces the church fathers and deals with the misconceptions, he deals with his third theme, the historical events and places of the life of the church father. Each chapter begins by giving a modern day......

Getting Results

...Getting to Results Tayt Tolman COM 516 November 9, 2011 * Teamwork is a familiar expression to depict a group of people working together to achieve a common goal. Teamwork is used frequently when referring to sports teams performing to accomplish a purpose; nevertheless, teamwork is now a standard expression in the workplace. The success of the team is directly connected to the efficiency of the team. The workplace is a results-based culture and the performance of the team is linked to how the team attains results. According to Higgs (2007), “It appears that a number of factors are more likely to be dominant in explaining variation in team performance” (p.82). Higgs explains further that it is the individual personalities of the team members, accompanied with the techniques used by the team to become productive is what sets other teams apart (Higgs, 2007). This paper will examine the critical components of the team getting results while working as a collective and collaborative unit, the internal management of the team and its relationship to success, the effectiveness of team meetings and the technological tools that are available for teams to implement in the work environment. The Team Working Together Teamwork begins with the individual; each individual in a team needs to be a team player, willing to work together to accomplish a bigger goal. Each person on a team has something different that he or she can contribute, and teams function best when......

Getting to Yes

...Getting to Yes With no doubt, Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher and William Ury, could be considered one of the most influential and valuable classic books to have on your shelf. Its importance to the negotiation theory and practice is appreciated by millions of people who, by reading and analyzing this book, hope to become more efficient negotiators. I considered myself to be a part of the group that wants to, as William Ury said, take the walk from “no” to “yes”. In the proceeding paragraphs I will present my analysis of Getting to Yes and how I absorbed the essential ideas and skills used for effective negotiation. Early in the book, the readers are introduced to some concepts and mistakes that are commonly practiced by inexperienced and ineffective negotiators. These poor negotiators promote positional bargaining. The main idea that can be extracted is that we should strongly avoid bargaining over a position, whether it is over family, contracts or even peace treaties amongst nations. Positional bargaining is directly correlated to the fact that negotiations fail, because negotiators assume either too hard or too soft positions. The authors in this book explain to us that a good agreement is a wise agreement, one that is efficient, one that improves the relationship between the negotiators, ultimately producing a win-win agreement. A negotiator must take a position that is neither hard nor soft; but instead, should take an alternative approach. This is the type of......

Getting to Know Parks and Rec

...Calvin Adams Suzzanne Morris ENG 112 2 October 2016 Getting To Know Parks and Rec Today, there are so many different television shows to watch and the variety just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Some people may like horror, drama, reality, etc. This essay is for the people who enjoy comedy television. These people might like one show in particular. The show Parks and Recreation. This show is a positive, successful, uplifting, modern television show that is worth the watch. Parks and recreation is about a group of people who live in a small town in Indiana called Pawnee. These people work for the government in the Parks and Recreation department. The show follows these characters and lets you take a look into their crazy lives individually and as a whole. The show mainly focuses on the main character Leslie Knope played by actress Amy Poehler. Leslie and her colleagues work every day to help make Pawnee a better place. The show first aired on NBC in 2009, and ended in 2015 with seven seasons. You may still watch this show due to reruns, DVDs, Hulu, or Netflix. This television show can be seen as uplifting for many reasons. In the show, Leslie loves her town very much and tries her absolute hardest to make it a better place for the residents. Unfortunately, the residents of Pawnee do not care much for what she is trying to do and make it harder for her to do her job. Even when they do this, she still does not give up and she gets the job done. The message here is that......

...experience, firms also wanted to integrate their disparate customer channels.... Figure 1: Firms are looking for a wide range of benefits from BPM Others really wanted to focus on integrating their distinct systems and legacy applications, re-using their existing IT assets and the embedded fragments of process within them. Some wanted to outsource parts of the process or to choreograph the distribution of responsibilities amongst suppliers and partners (or even to the customer). Most were looking forward to the enhanced agility and lower operational risk. For some, better support for regulatory compliance was also critical.. Regardless of the firm's objectives, the BPM system had to work with existing systems and approaches. In the case of Hasbro, that meant interoperating with the firm's SAP system (see case study below). Like most others, Hasbro set out to support the wider business process that surrounded their transactional system.. Hasbro Case Study.. Hasbro is a $3 billion manufacturer of widely recognized brand name toys. The firm now outsources nearly all of its production to a growing list of third party manufacturers most of which are in the Far East. An SAP based ERP system captures orders and RFPs from customers in the US, many of which have conditions attached (deliver by dates, etc). In the past, orders were broken down and relayed to the appropriate suppliers for quotations and responses using faxes, e-mail and phone calls. Replies were chased, collected......
