Social Development Research

“The Social Construction of the Personal Past and Its Implications for Adult Development” is the name of my article written by Monisha Pasupathi of the University of Utah. It was published in the Psychological Bulletin in 2001. I located this article from the University of Phoenix library and no it was not difficult to locate and the language was somewhat difficult to understand. The reason I picked this article is because it provides me with so much information on the issues in social development in adulthood.

Im a Basket

...In a Basket MGT/210 Version 3 Supervision and Leadership Regarding the discussion for the assignment in a basket between all of my class mates and I everyone pretty much had the same ideas in solving the issues. Most of us agreed upon which ones would be delegated and which would be acted upon. I noticed that many of us chose to delegate jobs like the rest room is out of order and the 130 pairs of shoes to be stocked away. These are jobs in my opinion I feel that an employee are hired for and is something that can be delegated to the other employees to do. There are mantinence and stocking and important for the emloyees to accomplish. Also there were some of us that agreed that certain jobs were important to be acted upon such as the notice from the fire department for the upcoming inspection. This is important to make sure everything is correct and up to date. If not the companies can get fines and it would not be safe for the employees in case of an emergency. A notice from head quarters about the upcoming holiday sale is also another that many of us agreed should be acted upon. This is because there is a lot to get ready and to make sure everyone is aware and knows what is going on. All fellow students had there own reasons for certain jobs being delegated or acted upon.

Green Basket Business Proposal

...bakeshop is to create a well-differentiate, healthier, and nutritious equivalent that does not alter much or compromise taste. The name of the store would be The Green Basket. And along with this is a matching tag-line,“It's about time to be green-minded.” Target Market The Green Basket's primary target market would be the young professionals and the secondary target market would be the youngsters or the kids, and the people in late adulthood.

The Green Basket aims to change this. The company's philosophy is to satisfy its customers by serving a healthy and tasty snack alternative. Legal Entity As a start up......

Woven Basket

...The conclusion endorsed in this argument is that the woven baskets, which are previously thought to be unique in Palean, are found to be not conform to its reputation as "Palean baskets". To substantiate(bolster) this assertion, the arguer points out evidence that archaeologists has discovered such a "Palean" basket in Lithos which is an ancient village across a river from Palea. Furthermore, he indicates that the ancient Paleans have no ability to cross this river. At first glance, the author's argument seems to be cogent, but close scrutiny reveals that it is unconvincing in many aspects. In the first place, the author unfairly assumes that no Palea's residents have ever been to Lithos for there is a river across them. While the arguer doesn't provide us sufficient materials such as geographical data or certain historical recordings to prove Palean was seperated from Lithos. Maybe they can just walk or tramp over hill and dale to Lithos. Even if the only way from Palean to Lithos is across the Brim river, the author's inference rests on the poor assumption that during thousands of years this river is always deep and broad. It is highly possible that this river is shallow and narrow or just not exit in prehistoric era. What is more, the author gratuitously mention that the ancient Paleans could have crossed the river only by boat and no Palean baskets have been found. Why should they have to come to Lithos by boat? A small raft or a simple drawbridge could be more......

Basket Ball

...ball that is shot into a basket positioned horizontally. The objective to shoot the ball is scores which are gained by following certain rules of the game. The game is played by 2 teams constituting 5 players each who play on a marked rectangular floor with baskets on both ends. The game of basketball was invented by James Naismith in 1891. James Naismith was a physical education teacher at McGill University and later at Springfield College (then Y.M.CA.) at Springfield, Massachusetts. Under the guidance of physical education specialist, Luther Halsey Gulick, he invented basketball as an indoor sport. Basketball was originally played with soccer ball and Naismith used a peach basket (with non-hollow bottom) nailed at a height of 10 feet above ground on an elevated track. Considering the manual removal of ball from the basket a drawback, the bottom was removed to take the shape of modern day baskets. Dribbling was not a part of the game originally and evolved eventually until 1950 with balls gaining better shape from manufacturing. Also the orange ball evolved from the brown ball that was used at the beginning to be more visible. By the year 1906, the peach baskets were replaced by metal hoops with backboard. A referee tosses the ball between at the center of the court between the two players; one from each team and the player who gets hands on the ball passes it to a teammate. To score a goal, a team has to shoot the ball through the basket. A shot scored......

The Welcome Table

...“The Welcome Table” Arlene Randolph ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Cicely Young, Instructor November 11, 2013 The Welcome Table The title of the story would lead you to believe that this particular “table” would be welcoming, warm and inviting and the people sitting behind the table would receive you joyfully and happily. It is unfortunate that not all “welcome tables” fit this description. This story captured my interest two ways: because I am familiar with the author, Alice Walker, and having read her Pulitzer Prize book “The Color Purple”. In addition, Ms. Walker established an image at the beginning of the story. As noted in the text an image is a distinct representation of something that can be experienced and understood through the senses (sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste). (Clugston, 2010) With the description of the old woman’s attire I was able to picture in my mind exactly what she was wearing and even that she had cataract. “There was a dazed and sleepy look in her aged blue-brown eyes”. (Clugston, 2010) The setting of this story takes place in Georgia during a time when this woman did not have an automobile and had to walk ½ a mile to church. It took place at a time when all parishioners were not allowed to worship at the same church. While reading this story, I found that this old woman was not welcomed in this particular church (table) that she found herself in, I believe, because she was African American and it was a......

Basket

...Bola basket adalah olahraga bola berkelompok yang terdiri atas dua tim beranggotakan masing-masing lima orang yang saling bertanding mencetak poin dengan memasukkan bola ke dalam keranjang lawan. Bola basket sangat cocok untuk ditonton karena biasa dimainkan di ruang olahraga tertutup dan hanya memerlukan lapangan yang relatif kecil. Selain itu, bola basket mudah dipelajari karena bentuk bolanya yang besar, sehingga tidak menyulitkan pemain ketika memantulkan atau melempar bola tersebut. Bola basket adalah salah satu olahraga yang paling digemari oleh penduduk Amerika Serikat dan penduduk di belahan bumi lainnya, antara lain diAmerika Selatan, Eropa Selatan, Lithuania, dan juga di Indonesia. Basket dianggap sebagai olahraga unik karena diciptakan secara tidak sengaja oleh seorang guru olahraga. Pada tahun 1891, Dr. James Naismith, seorang guru Olahraga asal Kanada yang mengajar di sebuah perguruan tinggi untuk para siswa profesional di YMCA (sebuah wadah pemuda umat Kristen) di Springfield, Massachusetts, harus membuat suatu permainan di ruang tertutup untuk mengisi waktu para siswa pada masa liburan musim dingin di New England. Terinspirasi dari permainan yang pernah ia mainkan saat kecil di Ontario,Naismith menciptakan permainan yang sekarang dikenal sebagai bola basket pada 15 Desember 1891. Menurut cerita, setelah menolak beberapa gagasan karena dianggap terlalu keras dan kurang cocok untuk dimainkan di gelanggang-gelanggang tertutup, dia lalu menulis beberapa......

Welcome to Washington

...Welcome back to Washington Polls before the mid-term elections on November 4th suggested Barack Obama’s party would be beaten, but this was a thrashing. Republicans captured the Senate easily and their majority in the House of Representatives is now the biggest it has been in most Americans’ lifetimes. A Republican candidate in New York was indicted for 20 counts of fraud, but won anyway. Close-up, the results are even worse for Democrats. They thought they could bin a bunch of tax-cutting, union-bashing Republican governors, but nearly all survived. Instead, Republicans captured governorships in solidly Democratic states like Maryland and Massachusetts. Mr Obama cannot escape the humiliating verdict on his presidency. He campaigned in his home state of Illinois, for a Democratic governor running against a Republican who belongs to a wine club that costs over $100,000 to join. The oenophile won by five points. Yet as Republicans toast their triumph, they should be careful not to over-interpret it. Their campaign did not offer voters much of a positive agenda; rather, it consisted largely of urging them to blame Mr Obama for all the trouble in the world. That was enough to secure victory, but does not give them a mandate to pursue a wishlist of conservative policies. Although more Americans than ever hold partisan views, a larger number are weary of gridlock and would prefer their representatives to compromise to get things done. For the voters to be satisfied, America......

Welcome to Homicide

...Welcome to Homicide Forensic Science is a fundamental component of the justice system. Forensic scientists use scientific techniques and knowledge to assist law enforcement in investigations and solving crimes. They collect and analyze numerous types of evidence, including blood, body fluids; DNA; and human tissue. Forensic scientists assist the decision makers by showing the prosecutor if the issue has merit before it reaches the courtroom thereby reducing the number of cases having to be heard. Their decisions are based on scientific investigations and not circumstantial evidence or unreliable witnesses. Forensic scientists can restore faith in the judicial system with the use of science and technology for facts in criminal and civil investigations. The legal system is established on the belief that the legal process results in justice for all. History of forensic science The history of Forensic science or the applying of scientific principles to legal questions has a lengthy and interesting history. The first recorded autopsy was reported in 44 B.C was on Julius Caesar, where the Roman physician, Antistius proclaimed that he had 23 wounds on his body but only one was fatal. In 1248, a Chinese book entitled “His Duan Yu” (meaning The Washing Away of Wrongs) explaining how to tell apart a drowning from a strangulation. This was also the first recorded use of medicine to assist in solving crimes. In 1590, the first microscope was developed. In 1775,......

Welcome to Auschwitz

...Mike Pistic Professor G. Smith English 111 10 May 2016 Welcome to Auschwitz: The Dark Side of Self-Preservation The story “This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen” by Tadeusz Borowski recreates the brutal image of a Nazi concentration camp through astonishing details and the kind of narrative that spreads chills in every scene. With the narrative’s direct approach, the author wants us to take the facts “as is”. Even when the story becomes a fiction, he doesn’t feel the need of editing the gruesome events that led to one of the biggest tragedies in humankind’s history. But was the narrator just a simple senseless and “privileged” prisoner, with immoral ambitions towards survival, or he did care about the Jews where the “naked” truth becomes the only obstacle between the train ramp and the gas chamber? Waiting for the trains to arrive, and witnessing the prisoners’ manifestation, we can certainly point out the psychological damage that the camp life inflicted upon him, and the occasional outburst of emotions in the process of self-preservation. One of the most tragic and feared element in WWII was the Nazi concentration camp. Officially presented as a labor camp, it came to be known as the final destination for the Jews, one that ended up with death or in this case with mass killing. The German ideology of Aryan race superiority was in high contrast with the Bible and the Jews. Because the Jews are called the chosen people, and being viewed as society’s “parasites”......

...Exercise 7-2: “In-Basket” The role of a supervisor can vary from mentor to disciplinarian, and an important trait of an effective supervisor is the ability to distinguish between tasks that should be delegated or acted upon. Many supervisors lack the common knowledge of what is necessary to entrust his or her subordinates with assignments. This can be harmful to the department’s business objective. Therefore, informed, willing and capable of what is required of a supervisor will ensure an effectively operated department. The basics steps of delegation make the process simpler like following an instruction manual. It is a guide that every supervisor should follow. During the research conducted with other team members on a hypothetical situation involving the supervision of a retail store, a list of tasks were left for the store supervisor to either undertake or delegate to the employees. Some of the items on the list were unanimously agreed upon and certain others were not. Many factors come into play when delegating or retaining duties as a supervisor. For instance, the management pyramid within an organization may determine the length of responsibilities each department supervisor may hold. Although ideally a supervisor governs the daily responsibilities, some of them are controlled by upper management. The reluctance to assign undertakings to subordinates may fall on the company philosophy. Department supervisors like other people do not always make the correct......

The Welcome Table

...I read “The Welcome Table by Alice Walker. The Welcome Table is told in the third person and shifts the point of view from which the story is told. The theme of this story is a simple, but good one. The theme of this is about an old, rundown black woman who staggers the necessary distance in the freezing cold to attend an all-white people church. What captured my interest about this short story is the religious symbolism. Per R. Wayne Clugston “a symbol is an object, person, or action that conveys two meaning: its own literal meaning and something it stands for as well” (Clugston, 2010, p.480). It is filled with symbolism of life and death; good and evil; love and hatred; and peace and anger. Throughout this paper, Alice will demonstrate the significance of how the application of point of view, setting, and symbolism plays a role contributing the theme of a story. In the story, a black woman enters a “white” church. She is a woman of faith; “there was a dazed and sleepy look in her aged blue–brown eyes” (Clugston, 2010) blue symbolizes a peacefulness that this woman has because of her faith. She is not a welcomed visitor to this congregation, though. The parishioners feel “a fear of the black and the old” (Clugston, 2010), the use of the word black is not just to tell us the color of her skin, but to symbolize evil. This is further supported in the words, “many of them saw jungle orgies in an evil place” (Clugston, 2010). The interesting thing about evil here is......

...This assignment was designed put us, the student in a situation where we are placed in the supervisor position. In this assignment put the supervisor in a position of having to pick and choose what tasks to do themselves and what tasks should be delegated out after coming in and finding their basket full of tasks that need to be dealt with. When you obtain the position of supervisor, there is usually far too much for just you to do, therefore it is important to learn what to delegate and who to delegate it to. The most important tasks should be done by the supervisor but as far as things such as someone’s vacation hours and stocking merchandise for the store, those tasks should be delegated out to the assistant manager and to the store clerks. Being a supervisor means being in a role of leadership, logic, common sense, and decision making for yourself, the employees, and for the company. The “in Basket” debate and discussion gives us and our fellow classmates the opportunity to see if we can successfully delegate out certain tasks as a supervisor at a fictitious company. The discussion between me and fellow classmates was a great one and it appeared as though everyone agreed on everything accept for different incidents. The only two incidents where I came across disagreement were in regards to task number 3, and task number 4. These are the examples in which I will be using in this paper as far as disagreeing is concerned. Task number 3 is in regards to the mall hours......

In the Basket

...Exercise 7-2,” In the Basket” By: Shannon Quinn Supervision and Leadership, Course Number 210 Due Date: July 8, 2012 Professor Craig Slone One task that my classmates and I agreed on was that the mall needed notification of the store hours changing due to the holiday. I believe that we all agreed to act on because it is important that the customers know when there is going to be a change. This should be done when pricing is different, the hours of the store change or any other information for that matter. People especially customers; do not like to be kept in the dark. As a customer if I see a sign about a shop that I like to go to, I will stop and read it. I think this is partly because I’m nosy, and the other part is because I want to know what is going on in the store that I spend my money in. Most of the time people are okay with changes as long as they know a head of time what is going on. Now if the store didn’t post the holiday hours and I came to the store hoping to do last minute shopping, and a customer came to it and found it closed, I’m sure they would be pretty unset. Within the discussion thread that I and two of my other classmates participated in, I learned that we disagreed on the two applications for jobs. I do believe that my attitude played a part in my decision. There were some other ones that we disagreed on, but I chose this one to do my paper on. It is very hard for me to delegate authority. Sometimes I think it is just easier for me to......
