Most writers have gotten the feeling that their paper is not good enough and begin to attack their own piece of work, well before they are even finished. In Roy Peter Clark’s Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer, he communicates that silencing this criticism in the beginning can get more done compared to having the criticism take over in the beginning. I agree with Clark on this technique when approaching papers because criticism taken in a negative way can impact a writer’s overall work. Along with self-criticism, learning how to take criticism from others and using it to improve a written work can bring better results. Criticism will always be there but it is up to the writer to be able to hush the voice that critiques the work. Writing freely can help the writer concentrate on what he or she is trying to convey on their paper. It may seem odd but just writing freely can get more accomplished than just reviewing everything that has been written so far. Preventing to look back at the work a writer has so far can be difficult since he or she will want to know if what they wrote so far is good enough. Is it good enough? The question that constantly comes up when writing an essay or anything in general. This question can either make you, or break you. As a writer progresses in their work, the inner critic can begin to get louder and louder. If the inner critic cannot be silenced, it can help to just stop what you are doing and take a breather. Relaxing the mind and doing a different activity can calm the inner criticism. Clearing your mind from the negative comments and coming back at a later time to continue writing can have a positive impact. Many writers have found it more beneficial when they continue where they left off since the present state is in peace. A mood can impact an overall result since without noticing, a…...

...“Nursing Theorists’ Grading Criteria” document, located on the Materials page of the student Web site. Name: Steve Early Theorist Selected: Sr. Callista Roy Description of Theory: Sister Callista Roy believed that “Humans are bio-psycho-social beings existing within an environment. Needs are created within interrelated adaptive modes: physiological, self-concept, role function, and interdependence” (Taylor 74). Sr. Roy believed that the patient’s modes of adaption were partly innate and partly acquired behaviors; if the behaviors are appropriately applied there is an increase in health restoration. According to "Nursing Theory" (2011), The nursing theory was named “The Adaptation Model,” and includes a “six step nursing process: 1) The first level of assessment, which addresses the patient's behavior, 2)The second level of assessment, which addresses the patient's stimuli, 3)Diagnosis of the patient, 4)Setting goals for the patient's health, 5)Intervention to take actions in order to meet those goals, and 6)Evaluation of the result to determine if goals were met.” Theory’s Historical background: Sister Callista Roy is considered a living legend as she has been awarded various acknowledgements for her contributions to nursing. Sr. Roy developed the Adaptation Model in 1976, and for the past 36 years, she has been researching and updating her work, literally adapting to the ever-changing world and social needs. She has......

Peter Singer

...In Peter Singer’s essay “The Singer Solution to World Poverty,” he explores the possibilities of each and every American giving up about 2/3 of his/her income. However, rather than simply talking of his own solution as another theory, he tells the reader in so many words (literally) that he/she is wrong. A large chunk of the essay is basically a big middle finger to everyone reading it. It is almost as though Singer wanted to invoke anger out of the reader so that he/she would then go and donate money to charity, so as to say something along the lines of “You lookie here, Singer, I’m not who you say I am.” Some people might think that Singer is just out of his mind, but I think he was angering the reader by making harsh accusations on purpose. Singer opens his essay with a ridiculous story from a film about a fictional woman named Dora. In the story, Dora is a “retired schoolteacher who makes ends meet by sitting at the station writing letters for illiterate people.” First off, how could anyone make enough money to live comfortably like that? She ends up selling a homeless boy to what she is told to be a “wealthy family.” Her neighbor somehow knows that this is not the case, that the boy will be put to death and his organs sold. Second of all, how does the neighbor know this? This accusation is not explained. Dora then goes home with her brand new television, feels guilty, and takes the boy back. Why would Dora do this without further research? She has no proof other than......

Peter Drucker

...Peter Drucker is generally regarded as the godfather of modern management. Drucker’s major contribution to management is not a single idea, but rather an entire body of work that has one massive advantage: virtually all of it is fundamentally right. The third question in “The Five Most Important Questions by Peter Drucker” is ‘What Does Your Customer Value?’ You cannot arrive at the right definition of results without significant input from your customers. (Drucker, 1998) What satisfies their needs, wants and aspirations is so complicated that it can only be answered by customers themselves. (Economy, 2013) There are no unfair customers, at least in terms of their own reality and situation. Customer needs are material and psychological well-being. Wants are when, where and how service is supplied. Aspirations are preferred long-term outcomes. What does the customer value, is the least often asked question yet it is most important to know. Providing value to the customers includes making products or delivering services that offer solutions to their problems. The better the solution is the more value that can be produced. (Kloeber, 2011) People are so convinced that they are doing the right things. Instead of asking ‘Does it deliver value to our customers?’ they ask, ‘Does it fit our rules?’ And that not only reduces performance but also destroys vision and dedication. Methods of understanding what customers value involve collecting or analyzing customer information,......

...studies and enhance application of didactic course content to nursing practice. Students tend to undervalue the contributions of a nursing conceptual model to guide practice. By integrating a nursing conceptual model into the organization of course content and construction of case studies, students are exposed to how conceptual models can guide nursing practice. The purpose of this column is to explore the use of case studies for a senior level medical-surgical nursing course constructed within the context of the Roy adaptation model. Roy Adaptation Model The Roy adaptation model is a conceptual model of nursing that provides a solid foundation for nursing practice (Roy & Andrews, 1999). The philosophical and scientific assumptions of Roy’s model assert that the person is a holistic Nursing Science Quarterly, Vol. 20 No. 4, October 2007, 324-326 DOI: 10.1177/0894318407307159 © 2007 Sage Publications adaptive system in constant interaction with the environment. Roy and Andrews (1999) described people as biopsychosocial beings who adapt to environmental stimuli. Adaptation is defined as “the process and outcome whereby thinking and feeling persons, as individuals or in groups, use conscious awareness and choice to create human and environmental integration” (p. 30). The environment is the source of focal, contextual, and residual stimuli. The focal stimuli are the internal and external factors that immediately confront the person, family, or other group.

It also relayed any recommendations for modifications to the menu or variations in the store "look and feel" to the Concept group for consideration and approval. Operations was also responsible for Operating Tools and Learning (OTL). As retail employees were often high school-aged or minimally educated, OTL set operating standards and provided materials to enhance employees’ learning. Acting as a bridge between the Concept team and the stores, OTL also developed the training materials and processes to break down food preparation into steps that ensured quality local delivery of the chefs’ gourmet creations.

Roy Jennkins

...Roy Jenkins The son of a Welsh coal miner, Roy Jenkins later became a union official and Labour MP. He also served with distinction in World War II. Elected to Parliament as a Labour member in 1948, he served in several major posts in Harold Wilson's First Government. As Home Secretary from 1965–1967, he sought to build what he described as "a civilised society", with measures such as the effective abolition in Britain of capital punishment and theatre censorship, the decriminalisation of homosexuality, relaxing of divorce law, suspension of birching and the legalisation of abortion. As Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1967–1970, he pursued a tight fiscal policy. On 8 July 1970, he was elected Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, but resigned in 1972 because he supported entry to the Common Market, while the party opposed it. He was elected to the House of Commons in a 1948 by-election as the Member of Parliament for Southwark Central. His constituency was abolished in boundary changes for the 1950 general election, when he stood instead in the new Birmingham Stechford constituency. He won the seat and represented the constituency until 1977. Once Jenkins took office as Home Sectary – the youngest Home Secretary since Churchill – he immediately set about reforming the operation and organisation of the Home Office. From 1967 to 1970 Jenkins served as Chancellor of the Exchequer, replacing James Callaghan following the devaluation crisis of November 1967. He quickly gained a......

Roy Cohn Charactersation

...Charcerisation Roy Cohn In the play Tony Kushner-Angels in America_ A Gay Fantasia on Nationthe character Ron Cohn is presented at as a homosexual lawyer. Rohn Cohn also creates the impression that he is a man of great influence. He owns an office and impressive furniture. He highly values the father- son relationship whereas he points out that he considers that the mother-son relationship is not of great importance for a grown man. He listens to chaotic music , usually speaks in a load voice and feels rather confident of himself. He had many different male sexual partners but does not describe himself as homosexual. However, he lies about the fact that he is infected with AIDS and states that the has a liver disorder . This is one example why his character is demonstrated ambiguous. Another example is that Ron is not religious and does not believe that the world is a good place, yet he says that he loves god and that god loves him. Moreover he hates communism but admires the relationship of Marx and Engels He is also characterized by his impudent attitude towards his doctor Henry whom he threatens because due to Ron’s illnesses he considers Ron to be homosexual. His ambiguity is also presented in his private life. One the one hand he only visits selected restaurants but on the other hand he borrows money from a client. He is aware of the fact that this was illegal but does not really care about it. During the play is character gets more and more besotted by this power......

Roy Adaptation Theory

...Based on the Roy Adaptation Model:  Last 25 Years Nursing Science Quarterly 24(4) 312­–320 © The Author(s) 2011 Reprints and permission: sagepub.com/journalsPermissions.nav DOI: 10.1177/0894318411419218 http://nsq.sagepub.com Callista Roy, PhD; RN; FAAN1 Abstract Two key events lead to the prominence of links among Roy’s grand theory, derived middle-range theories and the design of research. The author in this column describes this work in two formats. Essential details of two areas of research are presented in episodic form—the first is work on secondary analysis of Roy model-based research over 40 years and the author’s study of persons’ cognitive recovery from mild head injury.The second is a project on re-conceptualizing coping and adaptation processing in sequential detail within the context of work in the field and the significance of on-going work for nursing practice. Keywords adaptation, coping, middle-range theory, research, Roy adaptation model The story of research based on the Roy adaptation model (RAM) can be told in many ways. When asked to write about research based on the RAM in the past 25 years I considered the major events of those years and also how to organize a description of the resulting research. First, I considered that it was 20 years ago that the first group presented a synthesis and critique of studies based on the RAM by five different investigators (Pollock et al., 1991). This was the beginning of the Roy......

Roy Analysis in Blade Runner

...Chancellor Instructor Hubbard Liba 102 “Multifaceted” Hampton Fincher and David Webb Peoples’ complex screenplay and Ridley Scott’s use of film noir combine together to produce Roy Batty, a character out of Blade Runner, whose diverse personality reflects Jesus Christ, Adam, and Lucifer. As a result, Roy Batty, is much more multifaceted than the heartless, man killing machine that is seen at first glance by an audience. Because Roy reflects Jesus Christ, Adam, and Lucifer, three religious icons, there is an unlimited amount of religious subtext in the film Blade Runner. Hampton Fincher and David Webb Peoples use these religious allegories to hinder a direct and understandable message from the film’s narrative. Therefore, Fincher and Peoples took their complex writing to a deeper level than most screen writers by denying the audience a straightforward interpretation of Roy Batty. One example is the allegory of the creation story and the fall of man. Parallels from the creation story are seen time and time again throughout the film, which is one way Roy’s character relates to the Biblical character, Adam (Gravett, pg. 38). In the Bible, Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil as it is stated in Genesis 2: 16-17: “And the LORD God commanded the man, ‘You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.’"...
