...An Unusual Dream I had a dream this morning. You know the kind of dreams you have right before you wake up that seem so very real… In my dream, a friend of mine and I were, for some inexplicable reason, working late in a restaurant and having difficulty closing up.  As is often the case in my dreams, there was a task to be done and infinite problems continually got in the way of completing the task.  But, after what seemed like hours in my dream, we finally finished the task and left the restaurant…late for some sort of get together. As we crossed the parking lot toward my truck, casually chatting, I began to notice someone in the parking lot moving to intersect with our course.  I paid little attention to this man, but could see that he was deliberately moving to meet us.  I continued to ignore him as he stepped in front of my path and I even attempted to move out of his way.  The man, intent on getting my attention, stepped in front of me again now nearly bumping in to each and other I finally looked up to see what he wanted. The rest of the dream was stripped away as I looked into my father’s face.  He was younger than I remember him, before he began working as a correctional officer.  He was thin like he was when I was in High School and his hair was longer and he wore his typical beard.  He was dressed casually, as I would expect him to dress now for any normal afternoon in public.  He smiled his broad smile at me and his eyes were bright and alive with laughter.  I...

... animals. Man has destroyed the environment to pave way for his settlement. He has cleared forests by cutting down trees.th short term effect is not felt but when the same man cries foul of lack of rain is when reality dawns to him that he is thirsty and hungry. Trees are a source of rain formation in science. The rainfall showers over vegetation and this forms the basis of food security. Inadequate rain means that, there will not be adequate food for consumption. And water to quench the thirst. At the same time desertification would start to set in slowly while man does not notice this phenomenon. With the knowledge and fear of no food, scientists have come up with Genetically Modified Foods to curb the starvation. The foods known commonly as GMOs have drastic effects which may not be documented to the common man. He is tricked to consume the foods without suspecting any foul play. Chronic diseases such as cancer have come up. The numbers of cases of these untreatable diseases have been rising. It is evident that we think the earth belongs to us by outsmarting it in producing the genetic foods. In actual sense we belong to this earth in that earth itself punishes us with diseases that will eventually consume us.

... some sources brought new perspective to my area of thought. I have learned that I must carefully analyze subjects and not just look at the generally accepted and well known attributes, I must teach myself how to ask and answer questions. Equally as important, I must strive to relay the value of critical thinking to my students. “…critical thinking has its origins in ancient times it has emerged as an important tool in modern educational practice. Teaching students 'how to think' or how to develop a means of systematically asking and answering questions is undertaken either implicitly through particular subject matter, …” (Chandler, 2012) During this course and in researching the topics for discussion to be included in this Continuing Academic Success Essay, I discovered the University eCampus Library has almost a limitless array of resources. At this point, I cannot imagine being unable to find resources to assist with my studies and learning. Using these sources, I should be able to expand upon the basic and minimal requirements and gain an in-depth understanding of my course assignments. With the numerous sources and resources, I can see little room for not succeeding academically. The eLearning program also allows for numerous types of interactions between classmates and instructors. There are both benefits and challenges to working with outside sources. The benefits of working with outside sources can be monumental. Varying degrees of knowledge and experience are...

(c) According to para no. 3.1 of AS 6, ‘Depreciation Accounting’, depreciation is a measure of wearing out, consumption or other loss of value of a depreciable asset arising from use, effluxion of time or obsolescence through technology and market changes. Accordingly, depreciation may arise even when asset has not been used in the current year but was ready for use in that year. The need for using the stand by bus may not have arisen during the year but that does not imply that the useful life of the bus has not been affected. Therefore, non-provision of depreciation on the ground that the bus was not used during the year is not tenable. As per para no. 10.1 of AS 10, ‘Accounting for Fixed Assets’, clearly states that the gross book value of the self constructed fixed asset includes the costs of construction that relate directly to the specific asset and the costs that are attributable to the construction activity in general can be allocated to the specific asset.

...Unit 8 Assignment (Author’s name) (Class) (Date) (Course Title) (Instructor's Name) The Turning Point -as Explained in Criminology A turning point can be defined as a decisive moment or point where vital change occurs. In criminology, a turning point can be explained as a deflection or alteration in a long-term trajectory or pathway that commenced at an earlier in time (Sampson & Laub, 2005). The interest here is in understanding the offenders’ turning points which are responsible in redirecting trajectories and not mere temporary discourses in their lives’ the pathways. As such, a turning point is especially helpful in the study of alterations in deviant behaviors within different contexts and over the life span. Turning points offer potentially fruitful areas of investigation that may enhance an understanding of how and why offenders quit their behaviors over the long-term. Characteristics of Low Self-control or Impulsivity Self-control is an important concept under Gottfredson and Hirschi’s general theory of crime (Pratt & Cullen, 2007). Individuals with low self-control are easily persuaded by situational factors. They become impulsive, risk-taking, insensitive, short-sighted, physical and nonverbal which predisposes them to criminal engagements. People with low self-control can be identified in various ways. They are unable to delay gratification due to their focus on the present. They often act impulsively with an immediate want for things...

...Dreams Botswana- Feb 2015 Edition Men’s Column Cars are a man’s best and most favorite accessory or some may even refer to them as toys. Since 1335 when the first ever man made care was created by a gentleman called Guido Da Vigevano, an influential culture of men’s style and fashi0n paired with the car has been an important aspect in commanding and the demand of respect as well as recognition. This has evolved with time, new & modern technologies, fashion, grand car designs and the different types of acquired and preferred tastes in choices of fashion brands & class. Social situations make some of the greatest influences in fashion, style, accessories as well as the type of car you are to purchase. In ‘todays’ era we have an amazing range of cars to choose from and our intrinsic motivation comes from affordability, durability, brand communications, neediness, technology, social media as well social status. As I took a visit to GM Motors in Gaborone to look at some of the most popular car brands & style that Batswana men love to own, The General Manager ‘ Daryl’ described to me 3 different types of drivers we have in Botswana; The Family man; The young and aspiring youthful gentleman and the locally travelled gentleman.

... is not going to allow the lives of kids as well as the women so as to take part in an election.” The previous Congressman Chris Bell sturdily fortified the HERO, and, like the vast followers condemned that the washroom squabble is a fake story pushed by the ordinance’s enemy (Houston Politics, 2015). Ben Hall won the debate because he is the lone candidate to come out against the HERO and prolongs to acquire support from the Hotze family along with alternate spiritual conservativeness. Although he concurs with other candidates that the city financial status along with the streets needs fitting, he also confesses he could lose or win this voting for his antagonism on the HERO decree. The preferred candidate that I favored is Ben Hall because he stands for the truth as well as the welfare of the people. He does not care to lose or win as long as it is for the good of the society.
