Police Training: a Modern Approach

...testing, but also through practical application with the most emphasis being put on practical application. A failed experiment - Menlo Park Police Department, California There are several examples of agencies who previously attempted to get away from the para-military approach to law enforcement with some success and some failures. One example of change that failed has to do with a San Francisco Bay Area police agency in Menlo Park, California. In response to complaints by its citizens of the agency being too militaristic and increases in attacks on officers and violent confrontations with citizens, the department decided, in 1969, to get rid of the traditional police uniform. The department’s traditional uniform was changed to a pea green blazer that hid the officer’s duty weapon, baton and handcuffs from public view. This set off a trend across the United States and over 400 other agencies followed suit (Johnson, 2005). The idea behind the change was that it would present a less militaristic view of the police by the citizenry, increasing compliance which would reduce confrontation and injuries to officers. In 1977, the Menlo Park Police Department realized that the change in uniform actually had the opposite effect on relations with the citizens and changed back to the traditional police uniform. The department found that officers commanded less respect and authority because the citizens did not see them in the same role as when they wore the traditional,......

Haruhi Vol 1

...the situation was. Consequently, a few days after that explosive introduction, I did something I would never forget—I tried to talk to her before class. My dominos of misfortune had begun to fall, and I was the person who pushed the first block! You see, when Haruhi sits quietly in her seat, she looks just like a normal, cute girl, so I planned to sit right in front of her to get close to her. I actually thought this would work. How naive of me. Someone please beat some sense into me. Of course, I started the conversation with that incident. "Hey hey." I casually turned my head around, with that airy smile all over my face. "The stuff you said in your intro, were you being serious?" With her arm crossed on her chest, lips sealed together, Suzumiya Haruhi kept her posture, then stared right into my eyes. "What 'stuff in my intro'?" "The stuff about the aliens." "Are you an alien?" She looked very serious. "... No." "If you are not, then what do you want?" "... No, nothing." "Then don't talk to me. You are wasting my time." Her glare was so cold that I found myself stuttering "sorry" before realizing it. Suzumiya Haruhi then removed her glare from me disdainfully, and started to frown at the blackboard. I was going to whip back a line or two, but I couldn't think of anything good to say. Thankfully, at that moment the homeroom teacher came into the classroom and saved me. I turned my head back to my desk damply, and noticed that a few people were looking at me with a look......

Presentation Secret of Steve Jobs

...much more common than four. Steve understands that the “rule of three” is one of the most powerful concepts in communication theory. Why Goldilocks Didn’t Encounter Four Bears Listeners like lists. But how many points should you include in the list? Three is the magic number. Comedians know that three is funnier than two. Writers know that three is more dramatic than four. Jobs knows that three is more persuasive than five. Every great movie, book, play, or presentation has a three-act structure. There were three musketeers, not five. Goldilocks encountered three bears, not four. There were three stooges, not two. Legendary NFL coach Vince Lombardi told his players there were three important things in life: family, religion, and the Green Bay Packers. And the U.S. Declaration of Independence states that Americans have a right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” not simply life and liberty. The rule of three is a fundamental principle in writing, in humor, and in a Steve Jobs presentation. The U.S. Marine Corps has conducted extensive research into this subject and has concluded that three is more effective than two or four. Divisions within the marines are divided into three: a corporal commands a team of three; a sergeant 52 CREATE THE STORY commands three rifle teams in a squad; a captain has three platoons; and so on. If the marines were kind enough to study this stuff, why should we reinvent the wheel? Go ahead and use it. So few communicators......

Geiziji

...south of Golden Gate Park, and he took a job working for a finance company as a “repo man,” picking the locks of cars whose owners hadn’t paid their loans and repossessing them. He also bought, repaired, and sold some of the cars, making a decent enough living in the process. There was, however, something missing in their lives. They wanted children, but Clara had suffered an ectopic pregnancy, in which the fertilized egg was implanted in a fallopian tube rather than the uterus, and she had been unable to have any. So by 1955, after nine years of marriage, they were looking to adopt a child. Like Paul Jobs, Joanne Schieble was from a rural Wisconsin family of German heritage. Her father, Arthur Schieble, had immigrated to the outskirts of Green Bay, where he and his wife owned a mink farm and dabbled successfully in various other businesses, including real estate and photoengraving. He was very strict, especially regarding his daughter’s relationships, and he had strongly disapproved of her first love, an artist who was not a Catholic. Thus it was no surprise that he threatened to cut Joanne off completely when, as a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin, she fell in love with Abdulfattah “John” Jandali, a Muslim teaching assistant from Syria. Jandali was the youngest of nine children in a prominent Syrian family. His father owned oil refineries and multiple other businesses, with large holdings in Damascus and Homs, and at one point pretty much controlled the......
