About Me

...“Learning About Myself” Cindy Radford Nursing Analysis, NUR 2430 Ms. Phyllis Hosey November 22, 2011 “Learning About Myself” In developing ideas for this paper, I have learned a lot about myself. I have learned that I am a lot more complex than I originally thought. I have a multitude of strengths and weaknesses and I think I could make a positive impact on the nursing world after graduation. I am in the process now of learning how to use my strengths for greater good and turn my weaknesses into something positive that I can use to build on. In order to discuss some of my strengths and weaknesses, I have to first tell you about why I wanted to become a nurse. When I was growing up, I had a bit of a rocky childhood. I was bounced between parents a lot and moved so much it was hard to make, and keep, friends. At the age of five, I was left at my grandparent’s home for the weekend by a mother that never came back for me. She left the country and left me behind. From that point on, I was raised by my grandmother and grandfather. They were wonderful to me! They saw to it that I was raised with manners and instilled in me that education was very important. I always knew they chose to raise me and that made them very special in my life. I worked my entire life to be able to do for them like they had for me over the years and when I was 25 years old, I got the chance. My grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. His health deteriorated quickly and I...

My Opinion About About Marxism

...My opinion about about Marxism I will start by saying I admire both the great Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels whom through their ideas and inspiration gave birth to Marxism. Marx was a creative,idealist and a determinist scholar who was willing to change his mind when he's confronted with new ideas. I also believe that there were two Marx in the sense that the young Marx was more of revolutionist while the matured Marx was more of economist. I wouldn't want to discuss in details about Marx's ideas but I believe that he was one of the greatest political scientist in the seventh century whose theories about society, economics and politics created the term Marxism. Marx basically believed that human societies progress through class struggle: a conflict between an ownership class that controls production and a proletariat that provides the labour for production. He called capitalism the "dictatorship of the bourgeoisie," believing it to be run by the wealthy classes for their own benefit; and he predicted that, like previous socioeconomic systems, capitalism produced internal tensions which would lead to its self-destruction and replacement by a new system: socialism. He argued that under socialism society would be governed by the working class in what he called the "dictatorship of the proletariat", the "workers' state" or "workers' democracy". He believed that socialism would eventually be replaced by a stateless, classless society called communism. Yes it's true......

About Psychopaths

...About Psychopaths… Psychopath is a term that is often herd in a wide variety of contexts but what does it really mean? Not to be confused with antisocial personality disorder, psychopathy is actually a more severe form of the former disorder. Sociopathy, as it is also known, is defined as “a psychological construct describing amoral and antisocial behavior.”[1] A psychopath is a person who “has deficits or deviances in several areas: interpersonal relationships, emotion, and self-control. Psychopaths lack a sense of guilt or remorse for any harm they may have caused others, instead rationalizing the behavior, blaming someone else, or denying it outright.”[2] A person suffering this disorder will exhibit behavior that does not accord with society’s laws and will lack a moral conscience that tries to control this unethical behavior. Because Sociopathy is a personality disorder there are no physical symptoms but instead one must rely solely on obeserving behavior to identify the mental illness. Psychopaths behavior can be tracked to the early years of childhood. It is very common for children with this disorder to exhibit violence towards animals, bedwetting until a late age, and pyromania. It is possible for children who are not psychopaths to display these behaviors as well so they are not a good way to measure whether a person has the disorder or not. Among adults a clear lack of nervousness and worries acompanies a lack of delusinoal thinking. As a result psychopaths......

About Starbuck

...pilgrimages to Vancouver, British Columbia, to buy his beans there. His point of reference for the beverage was dark, delicious coffee he had discovered in Italy. Soon Bowker, then a writer for Seattle magazine, was making runs for friends as well. When Seattle folded, two of Bowker's friends, Jerry Baldwin, an English teacher, and Zev Siegl, a history teacher, also happened to be seeking new ventures; the three banded together and literally built their first store--located in Seattle's Pike Place Market--by hand. They raised $1,350 apiece, borrowed another $5,000, picked the name Starbucks--for the punchy 'st' sound and its reference to the coffee-loving first mate in Moby Dick--then designed a two-tailed siren for a logo and set out to learn about coffee. Siegl went to Berkeley, California, to learn from a Dutchman, Alfred Peet, who ran Peet's Coffee, which had been a legend among local coffee drinkers since 1966. Peet's approach to coffee beans became the cornerstone for Starbucks' reputation: high-grade arabica beans, roasted to a dark extreme by a trained perfectionist roaster. Starbucks bought its coffee from Peet's for its first nine months, giving away cups of coffee to hook customers. The plan worked. By 1972 the three founders had opened a second store in University Village and invested in a Probat roaster. Baldwin became the young company's first roaster. Within its first decade, Starbucks had opened stores in Bellevue, Capitol Hill, and University Way. By 1982......

...Questions about the Volkswagen Scandal: Volkswagen is embroiled in one of the biggest corporate scandals of recent years. The German car maker has been installing “defeat devices “– software that allows cars to cheat in emission tests, making them appear than they actually are. What is Volkswagen accused of? Volkswagen’s software allowed it to beat the tests in a lab, but when on the road with emissions controls switched off, cars would pump out nitrogen oxide (NOx) at up to 40 times the legal limit. Crucially, the software “knew” when it was being tested, allowing it to switch emissions controls on and off. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that many VW cars being sold in America had devices in diesel engines that could detect when they were being tested. The EPA’s findings cover 482,000 cars in the US only, including the VW- manufactured Audi A3, and the VW brands Jetta, Beetle, Golf and Passat. Who is to blame? It’s not yet clear who is responsible for fitting the cheating software. Martin Winterkorn, the German company’s chief executive, accepted responsibility when he resigned, but denied any wrongdoing on his part. Prosecutors in Germany have opened a criminal probe into Mr. Winterkorn. Mr. Winterkorn is replaced by Matthias Mueller, the boss Porsche. Where did the incident happen and why did Mr. Winterkorn resign? This scandal has happened in the United States of America. Mr. Winterkorn denied having any knowledge of the emissions......

About the Army...

...of jobs receive bonuses when they enlist: interpreter/translators, divers, cryptologic linguists, medical laboratory specialists and explosive ordnance disposal specialists. Bonuses average about $3,300-$3,500, compared to the $16,000-$18,000 bonuses the Army was paying on average in 2007-08. Re-enlistment bonuses for soldiers average about $7,500 (Baldor, 2012). Where recruitment tactics shine brightest is in their ability prepare soldiers to go on to live professional/career-oriented lives after their time of service. For instance, there are many educational partnerships that already exist between branches of the Armed Forces and several of the nation's colleges and universities (Briscoe, 2000). Soldiers are offered college-level instruction at bases around the world, including both associate’s and bachelor's degree programs. Credits are transferable within the system of affiliated colleges and currently, the Army pays for approximately 75 percent of the tuition. Overall, recruitment literature, messaging and tactics do a great job in emphasizing potential benefits: career interest and challenge, comradeship, physical training, travel and other opportunities. Recruitment could be improved, however, by better coverage of tougher topics that would-be recruits really want to know about—the radical change from a civilian to a military lifestyle, ethical issues involved in killing, strategies in place to safeguard physical and mental health (particularly in war times), and......
