Lets’ Mix It Up

Written by: Brian Villapudua
Immigration is a touchy subject today and few people of this country are willing to stick their necks out and take a stand on one side or the other. Either way they look at this muffled debate is bound to raise many questions. Let’s take, for example, those who side with the anti-immigrationists. They argue that immigration puts a greater stress on the taxpayers to support immigrants. Anti-immigrationists say immigrants are taking jobs away from U.S. nationals and raising rents, and that too many immigrants are entering too fast to assimilate into “American” culture. However, these people appear to have made rash judgments about the issues when making such arguments, which seem to stem from xenophobic prejudices. Some of us don’t like to deal with things that are unfamiliar to us, but immigrants are an invaluable resource to this great nation, which was created by immigrants. Thus, we should strive to increase the number of legal immigrants allowed into our country.
One argument anti-immigrationists make is that the taxpayers are burdened by the extra expenses for health, welfare, and other non-educational services that are placed on the system by immigrants. But are immigrants really burdening this country? George Borjas, an economics professor at the University of California at San Diego, discovered that even though immigrants receive more in government benefits than they pay in taxes, they actually produce a net gain for the U.S. economy of about four billion dollars a year.
What about immigrants taking away our jobs? This is another question asked by anti-immigrationists. In actuality, the jobs that immigrants accept are usually low-paying ones in restaurants, households, agriculture, and in the manufacturing industry, Dr. Lerry Bedard, a hospital board member in…...

... amount of improvement that must be expected from the employees. A second task would be to decide what desired outcome would motivate the employees to perform to the necessary level. They must then design a reward system that would make the benefits of working hard to attain the company goals more beneficial to the employees than that of the overtime they receive by not attaining the goals. One way of doing this would be to reward each employee who reaches the daily or weekly goal by giving them a day off. On that day the rest of the employees must come in to make up the difference of their goals. After a few weekends of working or a few late nights, they will start to want the extra time off as well. Another way of rewarding the ones that achieve the goal would be to increase the amount of the bonus for reaching them so that overtime isn’t a more lucrative choice. The third task would be to make sure that this reward system would be in line with the personal goals of the employees. Once the new system has been in place for a few weeks it would be a good idea to check the progress that has been made and ensure that it is moving the company in the right direction for attaining the production goal. Another good idea would be to ask for feedback from the employees as to whether or not they feel the new system is working. By ensuring that the rewards are in line with employees’ personal goals this company would increase the likelihood that the new system will work....

Let America Be America

...In Society, a lot of people think that things are hard and difficult. People take things for granted and think a lot should be handed to them without a price. I once read that America use to be the land of the free, homeland to patriotism, but suddenly it has become different in many ways. I will explain through the messages and quotes of a protested poem, how America isn’t what it used to be. Everything will revolve around a poem called “Let America be America Again”`, by: Langston Hughes. “Let America be America again. - Let it be the dream it used to be. Let it be the pioneer on the plain. - Seeking a home where he himself is free. Let America be the dream the dreamers dreamed - Let it be that great strong land of love Where never kings connive nor tyrants scheme - That any man be crushed by one above.” In this section the author is introducing the idea that America isn’t what it used to be. America was simple a great dream like pioneers on the plain. It seems like the author is saying that America has changed to something that is unfamiliar and new to society. America was a place of love and romance; a place where no king was up to schemes or no man was better than another. “O, let my land be a land where Liberty - Is crowned with no false patriotic wreath, But opportunity is real, and life is free, - Equality is in the air we breathe. (There's never been equality for me, - Nor freedom in this "homeland of the free.")” By the author saying “let...

Never Let Me Go

...Harvard Daniel Vorhaus As we follow Kathy, Tommy, and the rest of their clone cohort from their early days at Hailsham to the “completion “of their lives, it is painfully obvious that these clones carry unique names, faces, and personalities. By the time Ishiguro lets us in on his dirty little secret—that society has created these children to serve as biological vessels intended to exist only long enough to reach maturity before their organs are harvested through forced donation. It is too late the as the clones have already established themselves as ordinary people. They laugh, cry, squabble, reconcile, grow old, and they ultimately fall in love. While Ishiguro’s tale has unmistakable air of science fiction to it, it is difficult for the reader to view it as. It should not be a surprise that society that view them as clones, are anything but normal. Tommy and Kathy are every bit the intelligent, compassionate human beings that you and I are, exactly the sort of people that you would want to be friend. If they differ from the society surrounding them it is because of their society’s inability to conceive of them as anything more than “shadowy objects in test tubes”;not because of their conception in a laboratory. Despite this, even those that know them best remain afraid.

Let There Be Light

...Let There Be Light What kind of world would it be without light? A horrible one. The light bulb is a world-changing invention because of this. If it wasn't invented, many world would be dark. The light bulb has given us more than just light though. If taken away, none of or lives would be the same. The light bulb was invented on October 22, 1879 by a man known as Thomas Alva Edison. This brilliant man has made many more inventions, his important of which is possible the light bulb. Though he technically didn't invent the light bulb, due to his work the where not tossed away as a failed experiment. He later made a company which distributed electricity to the cities and made other items. He then had competition for the distribution of electricity. He later combined his company with another one to for General Electric. Without the invention of the light bulb, many other fantastic items could not exist. Such items include the TV, computer, and the movies. These items would make our lives not as enjoyable and would destroy the entertainment industry.These items brighten our day up and allows several companies to thrive. There would be no headlights for your car, there would be no Christmas decorations or any form of flashlight. The world would be dark. The light bulb works by taking just enough electric current to make a piece of metal glow brightly enough to give out visible light yet not get so hot that it melts and breaks. The piece of metal is called a...

Let Task 4

...LET Task 4 A: The evaluation criteria used by the firm is fundamentally flawed in several regards. Among these are the fact that the rating scales focus on traits that have very little to do with the pertinent job skills. A quality evaluation should be able to offer specific and meaningful feedback. When a person being evaluated is being overseen by a person with little to no personal expertise in that employees field challenges and perceived inability to properly evaluate can arise. In a situation like this a supervisor would be well advised to involve the employee in setting specific measurable benchmarks that a supervisor outside of that skill set can effectively monitor. While it can be beneficial to get input from an employee’s colleagues this can be a double edged sword. Due to the fact that supervisors are often removed from the day to day goings on colleague input can be a valuable insight and also provide a wider range to develop an unbiased opinion from. This is of course assuming that the information being gathered is accurate. This can be problematic in cases where due to factors such as personality conflict a perfectly competent and productive employee might be unfairly categorized by their fellow co-workers. Great care must be taken in these cases to ferret out bias. B: The benefits of providing common sets of evaluation criteria are fairly straightforward. If the benchmarks against which employees are being measured change frequently or are...

Let Him Have It

... these failures are similar to the reasons many probationer fail. Supervision is generally minimal and intermittent, treatment programs for parolees are not widely available and their content was questionable (Walker 259). Worrall has similar sentiments about probation and parole. He cites the same RAND study as Walker, which concluded that two thirds of probationers were rearrested during their time on probation (Worrall 210). Parolees faired similarly, citing a Bureau of Justice Statistics tracking of parolees that found that 62% of parolees were rearrested within three years of their release (Worrall 210). Worrall summed up these two rehabilitation techniques by saying “before probationers and parolees can be rehabilitated, probation and parole need to be rehabilitated first (Worrall 215). The other examples Walker cites as the old group of rehabilitation programs, also known as intermediate sanctions, includes intensive supervision of parolees and probationers. Also included are diversion programs, boot camps, home confinement/ electronic monitoring, and faith based treatment programs. Walker assesses all of these programs as failures, and they have no effect on preventing future criminality (Walker 261, 266, 269, 270, 274). In Worrall’s assessment of intensive supervision he finds conflicting evidence, which at the very least shows it not to be the panacea it was originally hoped to be (Worrall 218). Worrall also assesses electronic monitoring, and similarly finds...

Let There Be Death

...Let there be death xxxxxx BCOM/275 July xxxxxx xxxxxxx Let there be death The death penalty has been a great controversy over the years. Many people do not agree with the death penalty at all. I believe that whatever horrible crime that someone has done should have that crime done onto them. One example is when a grown man rapes a little child; I would make sure he gets castrated. I would want him to remember what happened to the little child and how wrong he was. Lethal Injection Lethal injection is an easy way out but Mr. Cuomo states “True life imprisonment is a more effective deterrent than capital punishment.” (Cuomo, 2011) I do not agree with this; life in prison means they get to eat three hot meals, get exercise, watch cable television, sleep in a bed, have internet access and take showers all on the tax payer’s dime. It is so much scarier to me that I would get the death penalty and cease to be on this earth than to have life in prison. They have more than an elderly person in a nursing facility. Even in the bible it says to give these people the death punishment. “In Genesis 9:6, God told Noah that the penalty for intentional murder should be death: “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.” [ (Mohler, 2014) ]. This is something that I feel very strongly about and is something I believe to be true. “In the simplest form, the Bible condemns murder and calls for the death of the...

Let 1 Task 3

... resource. The CPA is able to negotiate a four-day work week while the employees in the marketing department are “encouraged” to work more than their 40 hour, five day work week because of the dependence that company has on him. If the company and the accounting manager wanted to reduce the dependency they have on the CPA they could have the CPA cross-train another employee or hire another CPA. The CPA may be resistant to give up his expert power but it is up to the company to decide where the dependency of power lies. Employee 3 must use his referent power to gain a stronger foothold within the company. Because referent power is based on personality it is very dependent on the perception and view of others. If views change then the power may shift to someone else that hold the popular perception. If employee 3 can use his power to lead a team that can successfully implement the sales increasing idea, he can then gain more referent power but also gain expert and legitimate power. If it is a failure he will lose his referent power and will have a harder time gaining expert or legitimate power. Whether in the scenario or in real life, everyone has a role in the power-dependency relationship. In most cases everyone has power and dependency simultaneously. Understanding the relationship between the type of power and the power’s dependency characteristics is the key to shifting power and finding a balance. In the scenario the company needs to decide what the best balance is......

... conducive to the provision of quality patient care and consistent with the professional values related to individual and collective action” (Fowler, 2008). Mr. Richard’s nursing home did not have appropriate nurse to patient ratio for patient safety. It is also possible that the facility did not have suitable rules and regulations for the nursing staff. However challenging an institution may make it on the nursing staff to provide sufficient care to their patients; it is still the nursing staff’s responsibility to create the best environment. Residents living within a nursing home generally need help with daily activities that they are unable to do independently. The standards of care by which any nursing staff should operate were violated when the staff did not respond to Mr. Richard’s cries for help. Although you can review the staff to patient ratio and point a finger towards the institution, it is still the responsibility of the nurse to assess and evaluate all patients under their care and to provide the necessary treatment. “Simply stated, the role of the professional nurse has changed, in a pragmatic sense, from one of legal dependency to one of legal accountability” (Campazzi, 1980). Even though ten of thirteen members of the staff were on break, the two registered nurses were found culpable for the death of Mr. Richards because they were legally accountable for his care. It says within the case that the nurses failed to monitor Richards’ condition or......

Critical Essay. the Poor Economic Climate in the Uk and the Affect's on the Marketing Mix of a Start-Up Retail Venture in the High Street.

...Assignment 1 Critical Essay Introduction: This essay will attempt to critically explain how the poor economic climate in the UK might affect the marketing mix of a start-up retail venture in the high street. This essay will walk through the processes of starting a retail business venture in the high street and discuss how the economy and the marketing mix directly effects each step. To do this it will be vital to explore the current economic climate and what a poor economic climate means? A definition of a poor economic climate “a recession is a decline in growth, domestic product for two consecutive quarters and a depression as a prolonged recession resulting in falling prices, reduced purchasing power, excess in supply, unemployment, and a general reduction in business activity” (Downes,j.,& Goodman,J.E.(1995).Dictionary of finance and investment terms Hauppage,nj:Barron’s educational series) This has been the case for the UK since 2007 as we are in what is known as a double dip recession narrowly escaping a triple dip recession. (BBC News 2013, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-22290407) This downturn indicates that the UK is indeed suffering from a poor economic climate having the effect of less spending and so less trade occurring in the local, regional, continental, or global marketplace. How this relates to a start up venture in the high street has both negative and positive effects. To look at each of these effects it is best to look at the...

Whether to Let Go

... made clear to Biff and Hap that while they go about living their lives, their mother is holding together the mind of the man who sacrificed his well being for them. She does this in a way, so Willy still feels empowered. The devotion in making sure Willy still feels like the man of the house is remarkable. Linda Loman most defining trait is her protectiveness. Later in the story, Linda shows her protectiveness towards Biff regarding Willy’s condition, saying, “But he’s a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him” (1477). Once again, Linda protects Willy yelling at Biff, “You’re not going near him. Get out of his house!’(1509). Linda does her best to shield Willy from realizing he is cracking up. She won’t let Biff tear away his last dreams. Linda understands that Willy is ill and hard to be around; however she plays along with Willy’s flashbacks in order to protect him from his own self-disapproval. Linda Loman’s will is a major attribute to her character throughout her journey in the play. We see this many times such as when she confronts both her sons about their poor behavior as sons in general, dealing with an ailing husband day to day, and having the understanding of the uncertainty of her household that is only afloat by fifty dollars a week from the neighbor yet still trying to be optimistic. It is only made apparent how strong her will is until she says, “We’re free and clear” (1517). As she stands at her husband funeral knowing she is going back to......

Then the battles, sing-offs and the live shows will follow where a grand winner is determined. Certainly, the way up takes a lot of talent and determination in order for a voice kid contestant to go home triumphant which can be the same hurdles that the Mother Tongue Based (MTB) had undergone. In its first year of institutionalization, resistance from the parents, teachers and stakeholders sector rises due to the confusion of its content and purpose in the educative process. Different interpretation of the process in MTB implementation brought chaos and arguments in school in claiming what is right and wrong. Presently, we could say that we are still groping in the dark but let us give MTB implementation a chance because according to research the research of Jim Cummins,who is a professor in the University of , children who are exposed to mother...
