Saint Mary Magdalene

This year is my confirmation and I had to choose a saint that will help me throughout my life. I chose Saint Mary Magdalene; she is the patron saint of penitent sinners, contemplative life and people ridiculed for their piety. Mary Magdalene made a big impact during Jesus’ last days.

Mary Magdalene has been called the second most important women in the New Testament after Mary the Mother of Jesus. When Jesus first met Mary Magdalene, He cleansed her of seven demons and later when He was eating supper she went and cleansed His feet. She wiped His feet dry with her long hair and then anointed them with expensive perfumes. Many people were shocked that Jesus let such a sinner touch Him but he recognized that she had good in her and let her proceed and forgave her of her sins. After that day Mary Magdalene was described as a courageous and loyal servant to Jesus. She was brave enough to stand by Jesus in his hours of suffering, in his death and beyond. She could have been killed for standing by him, but her faith made her strong. Mary Magdalene also consoled Mary the Mother of Jesus during Her time of mourning. Mary Magdalene went to anoint Jesus’ body on Easter Sunday and she discovered the empty tomb. She was crying when she heard a voice she knew very well, it called her name and she knew it was The Risen Christ. Jesus Christ had chosen to show himself first to Mary Magdalene, the repentant sinner because she had true faith in Him. At the foot of His cross, unafraid for herself and only thinking of His sufferings.

I chose Mary Magdalene for a couple reasons. I chose her because I personally like her story. I would like to have the same unwavering faith in Jesus that she had. As a teenager I see a lot of people that have little or no faith whatsoever. It makes me sad to think that they have nothing to believe, how can they have faith in themselves if they have nothing to guide them. There can be so many paths that the devil can lead you down if you don’t have solid faith. I know a lot of my friends are good people but they don’t have the structure in their beliefs and they do make mistakes. We are human and I make mistakes too, but I always know that God will accept me and guide me back. That is another reason why I chose Mary Magdalene, she is proof that Jesus loves all his children and that God is merciful. She is a repentant sinner and she made mistakes. When it came down to it she was truly sorry and was forgiven. I like to know that if I ever go astray I will always have a Family in church and at home that will take me back and love me unconditionally.

I see many ways Mary Magdalene will help me in my future. She has taught me not to judge people by their past and to not judge others too quickly. She will remind me of God’s unconditional love. She is an example of the power of Faith and keeping it no matter the consequences. She helps me see and will continue to help me to understand that it is human to sin and make mistakes and that Jesus died for all us and for our salvation. Mary Magdalene is a strong woman with great convictions and I admire that about her. I hope to be able to humbly serve Jesus Christ throughout my life as she did.

Mary Magdalene will be my confirmation saint and I choose the Spanish version of the name, Maria Magdalena, in honor of the fact that my paternal grandparents only speak Spanish. She will be my saint because of her important role in biblical history, her devout faith and her empathetic nature, and she will be a good guide in my future life. I dedicate my sacrament of confirmation to my maternal and paternal grandparents. They have been constant reminders of how strong faith can guide you successfully through life. “Your faith has made you safe, go in peace” Luke 7:50

There’s craziness everywhere you visit, but when you put yourself into a show where you need to have an open mind, to understand, fun and get the full experience, you must go in with an open mind. My first metal show took place on a cool breeze evening traffic on the sunset strip was like any other day. I found myself and others in the car rushing to get to the venue. The sun was setting in the horizon, and the evening was getting fill with excitement. The summer breeze became still and the sky was a pale blue, lots of cars where passing through the sunset boulevard. I had gone to the liquor store nearby to purchase a small bottle of whiskey, to ease the nerves a little. We had stop by one of the buildings to sit down and talk and drink. When I got to the line to wait to enter the whisky a-go-go, as the band was passing by, they videotape us so that we could be on their media network. Alex introduced me to his friends and was told by him that we all stay within the group and look after one another. My attire consisted of high top tennis shoes, band shirts, and skinny black jeans, lose curly hair, the longer the better. Everyone is either wearing the same attire; some have leather jackets, boots, or flannels shirts wrap around the waist. I personally felt self-conscious of how I looked and if I was going to be accepted by the crowd. All you have to do is know the......

Go Variatns

...variants[edit] The difficulty in defining the rules of Go has led to the creation of many subtly different rulesets. They vary in areas like scoring method, ko, suicide, handicap placement, and how neutral points are dealt with at the end. These differences are usually small enough to maintain the character and strategy of the game, and are typically not considered variants. Different rulesets are explained in Rules of Go. In some of the examples below, the effects of rule differences on actual play are minor, but the tactical consequences are substantial. Tibetan Go[edit] The starting position for Tibetan Go Tibetan Go is played on a 17×17 board, and starts with six stones (called Bo) from each color placed on the third line as shown. White makes the first move.[1] There is a unique ko rule: a stone may not be played at an intersection where the opponent has just removed a stone. This ko rule is so different from other major rulesets that it alone significantly changes the character of the game. For instance, snapbacks must be delayed by at least one move, allowing an opponent the chance to create life. Finally, a player who occupies or surrounds all four corner points (the 1-1 points) receives a bonus of 40 points, and if he controls the center point also, he receives a further bonus of 10 points.

Fairness Is Good Management

...FAIRNESS IS GOOD MANAGEMENT Fairness is just good management. We already know that if you want to be a good manager you have to be fair to all. But what does that mean? And how can you be fair more often to more people? What Does Fairness Mean? It is part of the quirkiness of the English language that fair means according to the relative merits of each or consistent with rules and logic. However, it also means moderately good or satisfactory. So a fair manager can mean either one who treats others fairly or one who is only moderately good as a manager. Our goal is the first meaning. Why Is Fairness Good Management? When asked, a group of almost 2200 people reported fairness as the most important trait of a boss for who whom they would want to work. When you treat your employees fairly they spend less time worrying about who else is getting an unfair share. They don't spend a lot of time looking for ways to increase their own share. They spend less time looking for another job. And they spend more time working for you and getting more done. When you treat others fairly two things happen. Your own employees notice and respect you for it. It reinforces their belief that you are treating them fairly and will continue to do so. Second, the other people who you treat fairly will respond in kind. You will get better cooperation from them. That makes your job and the job of your employees easier too. How To Be A Fair Manager A good manager is one who treats everyone fairly...

Cheating and Nascar: Whos at the Wheel

...Analyze the motivational factors that promote cheating in NASCAR I believe that the largest motivational factor of any NASCAR team owner, crew member, or driver is that of winning. Each team represents not only a number on the side of a car but the entire organization, the sponsors, the driver, the crew chief, their crew and their families. NASCAR is big into the family values and your team is your family; you never let your family down. To win a race at any track is to bring honor to your team, revenue to your sponsors, and notoriety to your name. To win for oneself may not be enough motivation to cause a driver to cheat; however, most often times the driver is not the one that sets up the car, which is the crew and crew chief’s duty. Drivers can aide in the facilitation of cheating by requesting that their car be tweaked to their liking, how this is done however is the crew’s job. To win for a cause or for a team gives more pressure to win because there are other people counting on your success. Other motivational factors that promote cheating within NASCAR are that everyone knows everyone cheats. Each and every team in the NASCAR garage has tried and tested the very vague rules of the governing body, sometimes they get caught and others they don’t. To the teams it is worth a chance to try and get away with a tweak that may not be entirely within the rule book and get that little bit of an edge than to finish last on race day. The more lenient the attitude is......

He published his first book, a collection of short stories entitled "Night Fears" in 1924. His novel "Eustace and Hilda" (1947) was recognized immediately as a major contribution to English fiction; "The Go-Between" (1953) and "The Hireling" (1957) were later made into internationally successful films. In 1967 he published "The Novelist's Responsibility", a collection of critical essays. L.P. Hartley was a highly skilled narrator and all his tales are admirably told.

I would decide to leave Valley Forge because I have already served my country and my family must always come first. The army is also suffering. There are men without shoes, food, and shelter. This so called “army” is not fit to fight in this war. How does this army plan to win the war if their troops can not even survive the winter? My mother is sick and at the near point of death.

Starting with the nerves you may feel “The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs,” explaining how nervous and anxious feelings can arise from pain.

She says “This is the Hour of Lead – Remembered, if outlived, As a freezing persons, recollect the Snow-“ touching base with the fact that no matter what, you will always remember this feeling of pain, like a person stuck in the snow will always remember the snow. Next she says “First – chill- then Stupor- then the letting go” , describing, basically, the whole process of losing someone you love.

Cheating on Nascar

...Reflection on article Cheating and NASCAR The size of the organization presents a challenging ethical dilemma because of the vast reach the organization has within society, commercial/retail industries, and the media. The case states that NASCAR’s “television ratings are second only to football, has 75 million fans, and over $2 billion in licensed products” (Baucus, Norton, Davis-Sramek, Meek; 2008, p.379). An organization that large should exercise due diligence regarding ethical practices, but NASCAR is quite the contrary. The two arguments within the article pose critical questions that are the crux of the industry’s success. If NASCAR opted to align its behavior with more ethical standards their biggest stakeholders, fans and sponsors, would be negatively impacted. The sponsors would not sustain their investment if the return diminished because the number of fans attending the races and purchasing licensed retail items declined. Likewise, if the number and amount of sponsorships declined, the races would become less exciting and much less glamorous. This catch-22 would then deter the attention of the broadcasting media who would refocus on other sporting events. With all that said, we have yet to consider the impact on the many geographical racing communities that a decline in the industry would cause. Across the country, the many towns hosting businesses that make their living off the NASCAR industry would be forced to close or redirect their business......

...PROBLEM PREVENTION PLAN Introduction Rules and procedures for the classroom, regardless of the level, are imperative and will be used accordingly in order for a classroom to be effectively managed. The most effect approach to classroom management is effective instruction (Evertson & Pool, 2008). Starting the school year with rules and procedures will set a standard that will set a tone for the remaining school year. This customized plan will focus on a first grade classroom. Rules and Procedures Since students do not share the same knowledge or behavioral characteristics, the classroom will support the diverse learner in many ways. Van Brummel suggests, “To create an optimal learning situation, indicate your expectations clearly.” One of these supports will be classroom rules. These rules will be for the entire classroom, which will be set at the beginning of the school year. The rules will be simple and easy to understand for young students. The rules are as follows: 1. Respect everyone in the class. 2. Follow directions. 3. Be polite. 4. Raise your hand. Respecting everyone in the class is rule that is to include many aspects of classroom activity. This rule can include offensives such as interrupting and disruptive behavior. A classroom has to behave in a way which depicts Christian character. Students are also expected to follow directions, but it is an important class rule, because they need to be able to be ready and have the...

Nature of Argument

...Week 1 Discussion The Nature of Argument After reading the "Preface," "Introduction," and Chapter 1 in your course text, The Rulebook for Arguments, consider the nature and purpose of argument. Consider the different forms that arguments can take. As you prepare for this Discussion, be sure to focus on rules one through seven presented in Chapter 1. With these thoughts in mind: * Select two of the rules that either you or one of your associates have broken in the past. * Illustrate an example of an incorrect and a correct use of each of these two rules. * Discuss why the rules are important in formulating strong arguments. One of the rules that I have recently broken myself was in my last course. For an assignment I used language and words to further emphasis the point of my paper. Now, after reading thru the 7 rules to consider when posing an argument I now understand that use of loaded language is not an effective way to back any of my premises. After thinking about this further, breaking this rule only allowed me to present my paper in a opinioned manner which clearly is going to take away from the validity of the points/issue being addressed. A second rule that is overly annoying to me in real-life, is when a member of senior management does not use definite, specific, or concrete language. Reading that this is one of the general rules in posing an argument this rule really hit home for me. From my experience, I often find that when I asks questions...
