On 11/1/2013, I attended my first class of Basic Composition. On that day, I was late for class as we had to attend a talk by Mr Kalai and a meeting for committees. I went to class at around 3p.m. and found that the lecturer for Basic Composition subject was actually Miss Felicia, who taught us the subject of General Psychology last semester. She was still very kind even though she gave us a lot of homework such as writing journals, writing introductions for some topics and many more. I enjoyed attending her class because her class was so interesting compared to other classes. I hope the next class will also be so interesting as well.

Sample: Attending classes is important. Basic Composition and General Psychology are part of the subject taught in the University. Both subject are interesting for students to learn. The subjects became more insightful with an experience lecturer giving lessons on the particular subjects.

Today, when i was reading a book, i saw a very meaningful phrase, "Lost time is never found again." I know it sounds nothing, but actually when we try to think deeper, we will find that time flies, without waiting for us. We are just like jogging with time, when we are distracted by something else, we will slow down our pace, but do not forget, time is still running. Thus, we have to manage our time properly so that we can follow the pace of time.

In the future it is possible to instantaneously measure a person's mental state, personality, and the probability that a person will commit crimes, all through a device installed on each citizen's body called a Psycho-Pass. When this probability, measured by the "Crime Coefficient" index, is too high in an individual, they are pursued and apprehended—with lethal force, if necessary. This task is performed by a special team of so called latent criminals (people whose crime coefficient is deemed too high, and without chance of recovery) called Enforcers, who are supervised by police officers known as Inspectors; the Inspectors ensure that Enforcers perform their duties within the constraints of the law. Both Enforcers and Inspectors use magnum-esque "Dominators", special weapons designed to fire only on those with a higher than normal Crime Coefficient. The story follows Unit One of the Public Safety Bureau's Criminal Investigation Division.

This choice has been strongly influenced by the Pediatric Therapists that I have been involved with when dealing with the special needs of my youngest child and also my own experience as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Observation and Assessment; by observing a child in a neutral or if you will there natural environments and simply documenting there active daily living skills or what is more commonly referred to in the Health Care Profession A.D.L.’s you can gain understanding of where there strengths and weaknesses are. When you observe a child within their peer group you can quickly gain an understanding if there developmental skills are lesser than or equal to others of their peer group. Take for example my son he is 41 months old and appears at first glance to be appropriately physically developed with no disabilities. Placing him within his peer group and simply observing his behavior and interactions with his peers will immediately entice you to observe him in more detail. When walking away you will notice that his knees turn inward and he appear to be dragging his right leg and walking on the inner portion of his......

...(IJCSIS) International Journal of Computer Science and Information Security, Vol. 10, No. 3, March 2012 An Efficient Automatic Attendance System Using Fingerprint Reconstruction Technique Josphineleela.R Dr.M.Ramakrishnan Research scholar Department of Computer Science and Engineering Sathyabamauniversity Chennai,India ilanleela@yahoo.com Professor/HOD-IT Velammal Engineering College Chennai,India ramkrishod@gmail.com Abstract— Biometric time and attendance system is one of the most successful applications of biometric technology. One of the main advantage of a biometric time and attendance system is it avoids "buddy-punching". Buddy punching was a major loophole which will be exploiting in the traditional time attendance systems. Fingerprint recognition is an established field today, but still identifying individual from a set of enrolled fingerprints is a time taking process. Most fingerprint-based biometric systems store the minutiae template of a user in the database. It has been traditionally assumed that the minutiae template of a user does not reveal any information about the original fingerprint. This belief has now been shown to be false; several algorithms have been proposed that can reconstruct fingerprint images from minutiae templates. In this paper, a novel fingerprint reconstruction algorithm is proposed to reconstruct the phase image, which is then converted into the grayscale image. The proposed reconstruction......

...Journal Entry #1 Cheating is what first comes to mind when I hear the word plagiarism. It basically means taking someone else’s work without giving any credit. This is a common practice not only in school but also anywhere else that involves writing. People plagiarize for varied reasons. They commit plagiarism because they’re too lazy, or some plagiarize because they’re probably suffering from a writer’s block. Colleges are very concerned about students committing plagiarism because they don’t want to give them a grade that they did not really earn. It would also be unfair for other students who worked hard for something and got a lower grade compared to someone who plagiarized someone else’s work. Plagiarism is definitely something that a college would be concerned about because it is considered as cheating and stealing especially now that the internet is taking over. It basically violates a student’s academic integrity. When someone plagiarizes, he/she doesn’t know that it could affect their thinking and writing skills. Because of plagiarism, they will not be able to develop their thinking and writing skills as much and they also won’t receive any necessary feedbacks that could help them improve their skills. Journal Entry #2 Coming late to class is another thing that teachers and professors would have to deal with when it comes to their students. There are some same students who always arrive late after class begins every day, and then there comes the “heavy......

...International Journal of Event Management Research Volume 6, Number 1, 2011 www.ijemr.org VOLUNTEER SATISFACTION AND INTENT TO REMAIN: AN ANALYSIS OF CONTRIBUTING FACTORS AMONG PROFESSIONAL GOLF EVENT VOLUNTEERS Gina Pauline Syracuse University ABSTRACT Sport events are increasingly reliant on episodic volunteers for the successful delivery of an event. As there continues to exist a surge in the organization of sporting events coupled with the demand for volunteers, event organizers must concern themselves with utilizing the appropriate recruitment and retention strategies. In an effort to do this, one must understand the points of satisfaction for volunteers as well as factors influencing their future intentions to volunteer. While there exists a plethora of research to understand the motivation of volunteers, exploring the antecedents of volunteer satisfaction as well as intent to remain has been limited. This study investigates the factors influencing volunteer satisfaction as well as intentions to remain as a volunteer for future sporting events from an elite men’s golf event on the Professional Golf Association (PGA) circuit. Results indicated that overall volunteers were satisfied with their experience and willing to return yet were concerned with the level of communication between the organization and volunteers. The present study also found that longevity of service influenced volunteer satisfaction. A MANOVA revealed significant differences between first......

Through hierarchical linear modeling we are able to control for firm-specific and issue-specific characteristics and test whether country-specific institutional characteristics add explanatory power to explain the level of underpricing. Our results show that about 10% of the variation in the level of underpricing is between countries. The quality of a country’s legal framework, as measured by its level of investor protection, the overall quality of its legal system and its level of legal enforcement, reduces the level of underpricing significantly.

I will cites some examples and then summarize my input. The one person that readily comes to mind as an effective decision maker is one of my instructors, Mr. Randolph. I will share a few examples for my arriving at this conclusion. During the previous instruction quarter, Mr. Randolph was my instructor for IT221, Microsoft Operating Systems I. What impressed me mostly about Mr. Randolph was his display of absolute confidence. He was always dressed to the tee. He spoke with authority and complete competence. It was obvious that he was comfortable and in his element. He steered the group from one phase of learning to the next quite efficiently. When it was apparent that the class was veering off track, he would bring us back on line quickly. He accomplished this with the utmost of professional decorum. If a class member became disruptive, Mr. Randolph would diffuse the situation quickly and without apparent offense. When it can to determining the best learning path to take, He was not at all squeamish about making a decision. He would easily adapt the curriculum so that it was applicable to real world functionality. I found this quite refreshing. I have spent a number of years as a group leader in various situations.

Gerry Allen is the professor, wish means it will be not only educational, but enlightening as well. I like his approach to counseling, as he explains in the beginning of class; a counselor must treat the client’s “self”. A potential client is much more than the sum of their assessment, more than a culmination of facts of events or a sequential historical data of behavioral inheritance. The client is a living human being that has perception that is unique unto their own. To really understand and be of service to them a counselor must work in concert with the client to understand their view and the origins of their perception of the world in wish they base this view upon.

Individuals have responsibilities that they have to handle. Work enables individuals to earn a living that in turn enables them to meet these responsibilities. It implies that for any normal human being to live comfortably, one must work. Besides earning a living, work enables to utilize our time well. The world today could be full of vices if everybody had nothing to do. They deem that the fiend employs of redundant minds explains this situation clearly. Individuals ought to embrace the work and take it positively rather than viewing it as a punishment.

...Assignment: Journal Journal Entry: The Indian Removal Act We all have heard the historical accounts of Jackson’s President era; from academics and from non-academic sources such as T.V. programming and they have given some attention to the Indian Removal Act of 1830. The Act affected Native Americans living in the United States east of the Mississippi, by forcing them to move west of the Mississippi. (Cave, 2003) Few people are aware that Jackson’s administration had violated the guarantees that were granted by the Indian Removal Act legislation that had in turn granted the authorized removal (Schultz, 2014). Most accounts have given majority of focus on the removal process with little to no attention to what the law allowed and physical actions that had been taken by Jackson’s administration (Cave, 2003). Congress officially passed The Indian Removal Act in 1830 (Schultz, 2014). The Removal Act never granted authorization for land treaties to Native American tribes or the forced relocation of Native American Indians east of the Mississippi. Some consider the actions to have been an abuse of presidential power by President Jackson (Cave, 2003). President Jackson gave false impressions to Congress to achieve his desired result of removing Native Americans from their land so that white man could settle land that was perfect for farming (Schultz, 2914). In conclusion, this grabbed the author’s attention because of the nature of how the actions had unfolded.......
