After taking the Life Factors assessment, I learned that I need to be more concerned about my future academic commitment and that my reason for going back to school may be a concern. I guess it’s because I get discouraged at times. Sometimes, I sit and think of the reasons why I’m in school and how it will benefit me. I don’t want to be one of those people with two degrees, and no job, that’s scary to me. Having ample time, having a place to study, and having a solid level of resources and support were all strengths of mine. My strengths are very important when it comes to me being in school, especially an online school. It wouldn’t be easy for me to concentrate and finish my assignments without having a place that I can study without interruptions or having the necessary resources that I need to excel in my course. The support from friends and family is another strength that I feel I need to continue my education. The motivation and extra push is what keeps me going. I think reason is the life factor that I need to focus on the most. I guess I’m one of those people who believe that you can success depends on your work ethic and how much you want it rather than your education because coming from where I’m from, the most successful people are the ones who don’t have a degree. I try to be realistic because I know that in this day and time, a degree is much needed but when people ask me why I need a degree, I’m speechless. I think my reason for getting a degree is because it looks good and I’m afraid that I’ll regret it if I don’t finish. I will change my behavior by figuring out just why I want my education and focusing on the goal that I want to set. Procrastination and time management are the personality factors that I will work most to strengthen because doing things at the last minute and rushing through it is a big problem for me. It’s easier for me to work under…...

How Ambitions Play a Key Factor in Life

...How Ambitions Play a Key Factor in Life Many people have different views about ambitions, so the word ambition has many different meanings depending on who it is asked upon. I believe everyone should have ambitions in life to become successful. Ambitions play a key factor in our lives every day. To me ambition is a strong desire to achieve goals to succeed in life. It is the inner force that has led many people to become successful. Ambition helps us get through life, without it life is incomplete. Ambition is the motivation needed to help all of us to work towards our set goals throughout our future plans in life. I have always strived to set goals and achieve them no matter what it was. One of my main goals was to receive my high school diploma so I could attend college. My parents always stressed to me how important it was to get an education. With my will power and ambition, I did not give up, I strived for excellence. I wanted to make my parents proud of me. This taught me how important it is to achieve goals. Learning the importance of being ambitious helped me achieve my set goals and it helped me realize my ambitions in life. My personal ambitions have a huge effect on my professional aspirations. One day I want to be able to a decent livelihood so I can provide for my family. As a child, I dreamed of becoming a variety of things such as a doctor, lawyer, and an architect. Later on during my junior year of high school I finally decided that I wanted to study......

Assessment on Family Quality of Life

....WHAT IS QUALITY OF LIFE AND HEALTH-RELATED QUALITY OF LIFE? A REVIEW OF THE CONCEPTS AND SOME ATTEMPTS AT MEASUREMENT Quality of life research, then, spans a range of topics, from quality of life in the last year of life (Lawton et al. 1990) to quality of life in urban environments (Rogerson et al. 1989). As was illustrated earlier, quality of life is an amorphous concept, that has a usage across many disciplines -- geography, literature, philosophy, health economics, advertising, health promotion and the medical and social sciences (e.g. sociology and psychology). It is a vague concept; it is multidimensional and theoretically incorporates all aspects of an individual's life. Quality of life has also been defined as the `output' of the inputs of the physical and the spiritual (Liu 1974); as the degree to which a person accomplishes life goals (Cella and Cherin 1987); and even quantified crudely as a formula in which quality of life (QL) is a product of one's natural endowment (NE) and the effort made on one's behalf by the family (H) and society (S), such that QL ]] NE ]] H ]] S (Shaw 1977). The meaning of the concept of quality of life is thus arguably dependent on the user of the term, his or her understanding of it, and his or her position and agenda in the social and political structure (Edlund and Tancredi 1985): `Quality of life is a vague and ethereal entity, something that many people talk about, but which nobody very clearly knows what to do about'......

The Life Cycle Assessment of Cell Phones

...The Life Cycle Assessment of Cell Phones The mobile phone has become an essential product all around the world. A small handheld device with the ability call, send messages, and access the internet from almost anywhere in the world has become a necessity for many citizens of developed countries. Due to rapid technological advances, cellular phones become obsolete in a very short period of time. The average lifespan of a cell phone is only 18months in the US (LCA of Cell Phones). With over 233 million active cell phones in use in the US alone and 4 billion worldwide, it’s mindboggling to consider how many phones that have been created and discarded over the past few decades. 1. What environmental impacts are the most significant? The energy usage costs accounts for over 30% of the total life cycle energy (LCA of Cell Phones). Depending on how the electricity is created (coal, natural gas, oil, etc.) lots of greenhouse gases and other pollutants are released into the air. 2.      What lifestage(s) contribute the most to these impacts? Energy usage occurs in the Product Consumption stage. The daily recharging of the battery is a huge energy obligation. 3. What are the strengths, flaws, and limitations of the analysis? The analysis has a great amount of cell phone data within the US and gives great examples of LCA goals from companies like AT&T and Nokia. However there is almost no information about the LCA from the global perspective. Also there is no......

Life Quality Factors Primary School Setting

...Applying life quality factors Stimulation Moorcroft Primary School promotes stimulation (psychological life quality factor) in many different ways, both in and outside the lessons. Without stimulation in a school environment pupils may feel bored. This school promotes stimulation by providing and assisting with different extra-curricular activities. There are a wide range of extra-curricular activities for the children to join for example the after-schools club. This is when the children play a different activity each week and have a variety of toys to play with, as well as there are construction blocks and a cooking/baking session each week. If the child does not want to participate in theses activities there are quieter alternatives. An example of how Moorcroft promotes stimulation in lessons is how the teachers include different events and activities in maths lessons. One of the most popular activities the children play in maths is “catch me if you can”. This is where all the children have a number up to 25 on their back. One child starts with the teacher and gets given a sum they then have to run around after everyone until the can catch the other child with the answer on their back, this child then has to come to the teacher and gets a different sum. The game is over after everyone has been “catcher”. Depending on the ability of the group this can be made more challenging by timing each child how long it takes them to catch the answer. In lessons work is set to......

Life Cycle Assessment

...The data I collected for Life Cycle assessment was of LCD TV. I was surprised after this study that whatever products we are using is causing at least some environmental damages either during production; transportation or at end of its life cycle stages. Owens is right in quoting Jevons that the economical use of fuel is not equivalent to a diminishing consumption. Same thing I noted in my life cycle assessment of TV that within 5 years alone the consumption of LCD TV rose from 100 million to 200 Million, as many consumers are now purchasing TV for pure aesthetic reasons as it is more energy efficient and prices of productions are also going down with improved technology. Materials on the business and environment (owens, lovin, senge, de botton, documentary) compelled me to think differently. Before reading these materials I was aware of the fact that corporates for their own profits are damaging the environment by emitting greenhouse gases or by polluting the sea or rivers and I was thinking it’s the responsibility of the Governments/Regulatory authorities to control them. But as Senge suggested that: People blame greedy corporations or corrupt government for creating a system that deplete natural resources, destroy species and generate waste but things will not change as long as everyone is blaming someone else. Now onwards every time I had to take buying decision for any product will definitely think about how much carbon foot prints were left in the environment for......

Personal Communicatin and Life Skills Assessment Essay

...Rybecca Ruffin HD 205 Section 1 9/9/14 Communication is such an important part of everyday life, and is used in literally every situation you could think of. We use communication in almost every aspect of our everyday lives, with family, friends, acquaintances, professors, strangers, and even animals. Without communication, it would be hard to get very far in life, let alone even get through a regular day. It is how we express our needs and concerns, how we understand what others are saying, and how we discuss things. When it comes to communicating with other people, everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, things they can teach others, and things they would like to improve on. Communication is a way to listen to others thoughts and ideas, as well as express your own. Because of this, it comes in handy that my greatest strength in communication is that I am not afraid to be completely myself, and I encourage other people to be themselves also. I like who I am and I think that it is okay to be proud of your ideas and to want to share them with others. I am not ashamed of my own opinion, and I am also comfortable enough with myself and my views to be open-minded towards other people’s views. I like to hear other people’s points of view, as I feel that it can make you a more knowledgeable, cultured person, and to think that your point of view is the only correct one is ignorant. Along with being non-judgmental towards others, I feel that it is very important to......

...specific fact situation. Legal research is the process of finding the laws that govern most of our life activities and the materials which explain or analyze these laws. Simply put, legal research is the systematic investigation to establish legal principles or doctrines or to collect information on a legal topic. ============================ Legal Research and Legal Writing Series Part 2 - Need for Legal Research Research is essential in legal practice to determine both the impact of past actions and implications of contemplated actions. Applying the law to a particular situation requires expertise in legal analysis. Finding the law to apply requires expertise in legal research. The purpose of legal research is to find "authority" that will aid in finding a solution to a legal problem. Lawyers must know if there have been any recent statutes or cases that have changed the predictive ability of the sources they are relying upon. The cost of not finding these recent materials can be the difference between the client winning or losing a lawsuit. Indeed, "Good research makes for good lawyering." ============================ Legal Research and Legal Writing Series Part 3 - Legal Research Process There is no standard way by which you conduct legal research.

...Stimulation: Stimulation means the presence of stimuli that increase a person's arousal to a comfortable level, making life interesting and challenging for them, without stimuli life may be very boring. Stimulation in the residential home is provided on a day to day basis as the clients are always busy; this could be when they go to volunteer in charity shops such as the British Heart Foundation , when they go to work or when they get themselves involved in activities that have been organised by residential officers in the building eg: arts and crafts and sports activities. The adults living in the building will have a sense of independence as they’re not staying inside of their flat and also taking responsibility for themselves.

...Section B: Caring in a primary school In this section I will be describing how the life quality factors and caring skills will be provided for the children in year 3/4 by the different job roles found in the primary school. I will also be looking at the possible ways the children in year 3/4 may be treated badly by the different job roles found in the primary school and the potential barriers that may prevent the children from being treated well. Psychological Security: means the absence of fear or anxiety, but it does not mean being bullied or feeling threatened. The lack of psychological security can be caused by having a serious illness.

Factors Affecting Quality of Life

...Factors affecting quality of life Factors that affect a person’s quality of life may be physical or emotional. While these factors are important for everyone, it is especially important that care workers ensure that certain factors are present for individuals in their care. These include: • Physical factors: exercise, diet, physical comfort, safety, hygiene, pain relief • Intellectual factors: stimulation, engaging in activities • Emotional factors: privacy, dignity, approval, psychological security, autonomy • Social factors: social contact, social support. Physical life quality factors These include: • Exercise • Diet • Physical comfort • Safety • Hygiene • Pain relief Physical comfort By physical comfort we mean the provision of a suitable environment which meets an individual’s needs, i.e not too hot, not too cold, comfortable beds/chairs, the right amount of stimulation, not too noisy.

Life Factors

...Life Factors (PIES) Life Factors (PIES) Cystic fibrosis Physical Effects A hereditary disorder affecting the exocrine glands. It causes the production of abnormally thick mucus, leading to the blockage of the intestines, and bronchi and often resulting in respiratory infection. Cystic fibrosis affects the pancreas because a buildup of thick, sticky mucus blocks the ducts reducing the amount of insulin produced and stopping digestive enzymes from reaching the intestines for digestion. This can cause malnutrition, leading to poor growth, physical weakness and delayed puberty. Symptoms usually start in early childhood and include: •persistent cough •recurring chest and lung infections •poor weight gain. An early sign is that an affected child’s sweat is unusually salty, which can be noticeable when you kiss your child. One in every ten babies born with cystic fibrosis develops a bowel obstruction called meconium ileus at birth or within the first few days of life. In these cases the meconium is so thick that it blocks the bowel instead of passing through. Babies with meconium ileus often need an urgent operation to relieve and bypass the blockage. Individuals with cystic fibrosis are prone to developing bone disease (thin, brittle bones) due to a lack of nutrition (which is lost through stools because of the damaged pancreas), and other complaints related to the disease. Adults with cystic fibrosis also have an increased risk of bone disease, which is a side......
