Make a Laugh-In Joke Wall (ask someone born before 1959 what Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In was). Slit a refrigerator box down one corner so you can open it up and make a \___/ shaped wall. Cut windows with flaps so they can open and close, and paint wild decorations on the wall. The actors pop their heads through the windows to ask riddles, knock-knock jokes, or short jokes. At the punchline, other heads pop through to laugh or groan. Tape the scripts inside next to each window. Check out the "Jokes" link.

Impact Statement

...Impact Statement “It’s better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.” --Jackie Joyner-Kersee It is my aspiration as a teacher to help students meet their fullest potential in life. By during so, my role as a teacher is to guide and provide an environment which is conducive for learning. By assisting children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas I am allowing students the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations. Providing student’s access to hands-on activities and allowing adequate time and space to use materials that reinforce the lesson being studied creates an opportunity for individual discovery and construction of knowledge to occur. Each child has something unique and special to offer the world and it is up to me as an educator to develop their potential. By giving children the tools in which to cultivate their own knowledge I will teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful. Presenting curriculum that involves the interests of the children and makes learning relevant to life will help to develop children to become caring and active members of society. Teaching is a lifelong learning process of learning about new philosophies and new strategies, learning from the parents and community, learning from colleagues, and especially learning from the children. I feel that this impact statement relates to......

.... Traditional competitors: Television networks and content producers are continuously devising new, more efficient ways to increase the number of viewers and increase the amount of revenue gained from advertisers. The cable industry that relies on a captured audience of viewers who pay a monthly subscription for television content is most threatened by these changes. b. New market entrants: Web sites like,, Facebook, CBS’s, and Joost are all new avenues for people wanting to access television content on their own time schedule, with a reduced amount of advertising. Advertising dollars must now be redistributed from traditional content providers to these new market entrants. c. Substitute products and services: Television viewers no longer have to rely on just a few ways to access television shows. Fiber-optic telephone lines to the home can substitute for cable TV lines and satellite TV service. If people can download their favorite television show to their iPhone and view it according to their time schedule and not someone else’s, why shouldn’t they? These changes pose a threat to the steady advertising income stream traditional television companies have enjoyed. 2. Describe the impact of disruptive technology on the companies discussed in this case.

In a world that is constantly bombarded with breakthroughs in technology and revelations concerning human behavior, modern organizations can scarcely hope to survive without having one foot placed firmly in the future. As consumer need grows and changes over time, so too must an organizations ability to provide for those needs, as well as anticipating preferences and desires that consumers may not be yet aware of. Few organizations embody the spirit of American Industry and patriotism as well as the General Motors automotive company. With a history spanning 106 years, GM has been producing vehicles since its inception in 1908 (NY Times, 2014). Today, General Motors is still an automotive powerhouse, selling over 9 million vehicles worldwide in 2013 alone, via its many subsidiaries, including Chevrolet, Buick, Opel and Vauxhall. In 2008, in the wake of enormous economic upheaval in the United States, General Motors filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy as sales plummeted to disastrous levels. GM, critically short of operating cash, received a bridge loan from the U.S. Treasury, under the conditions that the company further accelerate a tough restructuring of its operations that had been underway for several years (General Motors, 2014). Subsidiary brands that had been showing lackluster sales, (namely Saturn, Oldsmobile, Hummer, Pontiac and Saab) were dissolved in lieu of the new restructuring efforts, and capitol was funneled toward...

Psychological Impact

...Psychological Impact Ana Stout PSYCH/535 September 2, 2013 University of Phoenix Psychological Impact Psychological impact describes the social and political pressures that influence or impede acceptance, psychological progress, affliction and behaviors of an individual. To understand what these pressures are you must first have a clear understanding of tcultural,political and social views on an issue. Social refers to the interaction between groups and individuals within the same society supporting an interdependent relationship among its members. Political refers to the governmental entities, which operate a structured relationship with members in the system. Cultural refers to the similarities of beliefs and/or background of a group of people. These are the numerous influences on an individual’s on views and behaviors in distress. There are many views social, political and cultural views on homelessness. The homeless because they do not have a home may find shelter under a bridge, in open or secluded areas or may spend the day on the street and go to homeless shelters for rest, food and to use their facilities. Homelessness occurs for a variety of reasons. I believe that some people chose to be homeless just as other people chose to be a director. I also believe that shelters should be open for people who need a place to go when they do not have money to pay and shelters should accept families with children. If the homeless...

After Class, I found myself in a better shape. I have improved my communication skills, and my professor taught us the right way to improve it every day by ourselves. After this class, I am able to speak, write, and present things in a better way. Now I am more confident in getting my point across. Earlier I was afraid before speaking in English. As I used to think if I would speak, I might commit a mistake and this will spoil my reputation. This fear had kept me away from many challenging opportunities. I could not make more and more friends, as I could not speak properly. My life was very dull and depressing. But this class has changed my life by giving me an easy way out to learn and speak. As a part of the curriculum, I had to write few Reflection Papers that improved my writing skills a lot.

Golf's Impact

...Golf’s Impact on the U.S. Economy As not recognized as one of the more popular sports, golf makes quite the impact on the economy. What many people don’t realize is that the golf industry is larger than spectator sports and preforming arts combined. Golf’s popularity and the number of players have continued to rise as the years go on. Golf makes an impact through many ways such as employment, equipment sales, endorsements, number of courses, investments, and golf course housing. Overall golf brings in a lot of revenue. A recent report stated “The World Golf Foundation's Golf 20/20 report estimates that the industry generated $68.8 billion in goods and services in the U.S. in 2011, with a total economic impact of $176.8 billion.” (Murphy 1). Generating $68.8 billion for one sport is already impressive but than making an economic impact of $176.8 billion is outstanding. Even as a golfer I never would’ve guessed that golf attained that much revenue or made such an impact on our economy. The golf industry was not immune to the tough economic conditions that the US faced but it is predicted that it’s moving back towards the $79.5 billion it produced in 2005 (Murphy 1). Experts believe as the economy continues to heal, the golf business will begin to as well (Hutheesing 1). It is great to see the sport of golf climbing its way back up since the struggling US recession. Along with bringing in a lot of revenue, golf makes a big contribution to employment in the US.

...Impact Illegal immigration has caused much turmoil in Malaysia. When the illegal immigrants enter into Malaysia they are bringing in harmful diseases that have never been a problem in this area such as tuberculosis and leprosy. Public Health Risks Because illegal immigrants, unlike those who are legally admitted for permanent residence, undergo no medical screening to assure that they are not bearing contagious diseases, the rapidly swelling population of illegal aliens in our country has also set off a resurgence of contagious diseases that had been totally or nearly eradicated by our public health system. The migrations of the illegal immigrants also bring another big problem to our country that is dangerous diseases. As we know illegal immigrants come from rural areas and when they enter our boundaries they do not even go to the public or the private health department for a medical check-up. Diseases such as HIV, AIDS and TB are some of the disease brought by them. The health problem will enlarge because this illegal immigrant brings lot of health problem from their country. For instance the HIV, it refers to the smuggling of women for the purposes of forced prostitution and this will lead to HIV virus in other hand it will increase the total of fatality. Because of these diseases, entire citizens become afraid to be affected by those and some of them have been a...

Suv Impact

...Economic Impact of SUVs The SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) is one of the most popular types of vehicle to both own and drive. Last year, SUVs and minivans outsold conventional cars for the first time. During the 1990s, sport utility vehicles (SUVs) became the fastest growing segment of the auto industry. Generally larger and heavier than the typical automobile, SUVs require more fuel and produce greater amounts of toxins. Although buyers believe that SUVs are safer than automobiles, which they are in some cases, SUVs are more prone to roll-overs than are automobiles. With sales projected to grow to over 3 million units per year in 2001, SUVs show no sign of decreasing in popularity. However, the SUV is increasingly coming under attack for its fuel economy. The retail gas prices rose to just over $4 a gallon. Sales of large SUVs were affected more than any other vehicle, and their resale values dropped like a rock. In this paper I would like to talk about: why people want to buy SUVs? What impact does the lower fuel economy of SUVs have on the economy? What is the new fuel economy policy by the government? What impact does the safety record if SUVs have on the economy? Sport utility vehicle (SUV) is a vehicle similar to a station wagon or estate car. Early SUVs were used in military and commercial purposes, Jeep and Land Rover were used in the WW2. Chevrolet Carryall Suburban was the first SUV came out in 1935, but it’s only a RWD. SUVs became popular in the United States...
