Last year on my 22nd birthday I got the best surprise in one of my favorite cities San Francisco, California. It all started with waking up to Taylor Swift’s song “I’m feeling 22” and happily dancing and singing along to the music. The weekend was already special because my younger sister was visiting from the Bay area and my Grandmother and Grandfather were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. My sister Sarah, my longtime boyfriend TJ and I started off our Sunday adventure around 7 o’clock in the morning, right after we got Starbucks of course. We were making our way from Antelope, which is in the Greater Sacramento area, to San Francisco to enjoy a day of adventuring. The journey there was full of laughter and music, along with site seeing all the beautiful scenery around. I am a frequent visitor to the City so we decided to go to the beach where we always do, right off of Ocean Beach by the Cliff House restaurant. Like we had done many times before we hiked down the cliff and walked around the old building foundations. The old structure filled with water so we walk on the cement beams around and across careful not to fall in the water with all the seagulls and seaweed. So that part is always fun and almost dangerous at the same time! We finally make our way across after helping one another on the more difficult spots but still having a great time. The next part of our journey was to a cave that ended at the ocean with rocks and waves. In the middle of the cave there was a spot where you could see the ocean coming under you and that part was always very wet which caused the whole cave to be on the muddy side. It was a pretty chilly day in San Francisco so we were all in sweatshirts and jeans. At this point we were lucky because there no other people and we got to enjoy the view with each other. At the end of the cave there is a chain so you know it is dangerous and not to pass it. Then there are huge rocks and boulders and if the time of day is right you get to catch big waves crashing against the earth. Sarah, TJ and I were just standing there taking occasional pictures and enjoying the view when out of nowhere TJ says to us “Alright time to sing Happy Birthday”. So I thought okay this makes sense but is a little random. They sing and as soon as they finish TJ tell me to Turn around and close my eyes and wait there, so I do as he says not knowing what to expect! Then he starts talking, saying all these wonderful things about me and our relationship. Then I get a little nervous because if you know him you know he is quite the joker. But then he finally proposes and asks if I will marry him, and I turned around with light speed to see if he was serious. He was very serious and I said “Oh my gosh, Of course YES!” then he slipped the ring on my left ring finger and it fit perfectly. I wished I could freeze that moment in time and go back as many times as I wanted, we hugged and were just blissfully happy. Sarah then told me she had no idea that was going to happen but did get some pictures last minute as it happened. TJ got mud all over his knee from the cave floor, but told me he was so nervous and I said “what for? I have been waiting for years to say yes!” Eventually we hiked back up the hill and decided to get some sandwiches for lunch. We ended our trip with visiting the Exploratorium and the pier. That was one of the best days of my life so far, and I can not thank my sister and my fiancé enough for making that happen for me. Since this day time has flew by and in 9 short months I will be marrying my best friend with all my loved ones close by.

...on the polarity of income. The number is really eye-catching, and straightly conveys a sense of sarcasm. Using it: If I want to show the scale of something, I can use exact numbers to impress the reader. 3. Source: A little faster, George? From The Economist, March 9th 2013: pp. 11. Passage: “Over the past 170 years this newspaper has tracked the British economy through some devastating shocks. The global slump of 1857 wiped out banks and chilled demand for exports. The 1930 Depression hit the country hard. Two world wars destroyed homes and infrastructure. Yet five years after each of these events the economy was growing. Not so this time.” What works: The passage first lists examples of what happened to the British Economic recovery in the past. Then, using a brief sentence “Not so this time”, it sharply contrasts the current with the past situations, so as to highlight the severity of the current economic trouble for Britain. Using it: If I want to show an exceptionally severe situation, I can use past situations that were similar but less in severity to make a contrast. Then I can use “Not so this time” to create a dramatic effect. 4. Source: A little faster, George? From The Economist, March 9th 2013: pp. 11.

Buffalo Soldiers in America

...could not go back now they were free but many did not have skills to go forward or a place to go. So many felt that the army would be a new home to others it was the adventure of being sent west to help tame an untamed wilderness. This could lead them to their great dream the dream of building a new life on their own land. The Buffalo Soldiers wore the same uniforms as the rest of the U.S. Army of the same time period. The only difference was due to delivery times. New uniforms and equipment were delivered in the order of the units. 1st Cavalry received the first shipments then the 2nd and so on. That meant that the 9th and 10th Cavalry received their uniforms and equipment after the other 8 units of Cavalry received theirs and the same with the 24th and 25th Infantry. This meant that it was usually about 4 years after a new uniform regulation came out before the 9th Cavalry, 10th Cavalry, 24th Infantry and 25th Infantry units received their new equipment. Among the soldiers attached to the 10th cavalry was Henry o. Flipper. He was the first black graduate of West Point. And he was also born into slavery. Flipper graduated in 1877 from West Point and was assigned as an officer to the 10th Cavalry stationed at Fort Sill. Flipper had amazing engineering skills which were demonstrated with his design and construction of a drainage channel system which eliminated a malaria outbreak at that post. Flipper’s system is known as Flipper’s Ditch. In 1881 while serving at Fort Davis......

Because we are short that contract, we simply deliver the bond. 3. (Foreign Exchange Arbitrage) Interest rate parity can be expressed in two ways based on how interest rates are quoted. The model for the foreign exchange futures price based on local currency per unit of foreign currency and annual compounding is where S0 is the spot foreign exchange rate expressed in local currency per unit of foreign currency, r denotes the domestic risk free interest rate (annually compounded) and denotes the foreign risk free interest rate (annually compounded).

New Orleans Post-Katrina

... 2011). Entire neighborhoods are home to only a fraction of those who lived there pre-Katrina, even 6 years later. The Lower 9th Ward is one such neighborhood. The Lower Ninth Ward was one of the hardest hit areas in New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina. While other areas of New Orleans have been rebuilt, the Lower 9th Ward for the most part has not. The area is little more than a ghost town now. According to Burdeau (2011) most buildings have “For Sale” signs on them, and there is very little business in the area, although “the businesses that are open are mostly corner stores where folks buy pricey cigarettes, liquor and packaged food.” As of 2011, the Lower 9th Ward has a population of 5,500 residents, which is just one-third the population that it had before Hurricane Katrina (Burdeau, 2011). As of August 2011, the fire station of the Lower 9th Ward still hasn’t been rebuilt; firefighters in this area still use a trailer (Burdeau, 2011). Schools, houses, and churches remain boarded up, many of them still bearing the “X” which was used during rescue efforts to designate a building that had been searched for survivors (Burdeau, 2011). Rich’s (2012) description of the Lower 9th Ward is even more shocking. The Lower 9th Ward has been almost entirely given over to the forces of nature. Inhabited lots are the exception rather than the rule in the Lower 9th Ward. The area has become overgrown with vegetation and wild animals of all types have taken up residence: rabbits, snakes,......

Hat1 Task 3 Sars

...SARS are being cared for in the home setting, they should wear a mask when around other people, wash their hands often (especially after using the toilet or coughing), and make sure they do not share eating utensils (forks, spoons, glasses), towels and bedding with other people in the household (New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, 2012). A5. Graphic Representation It was researched that SARS was carried out of the Guangdong Province in February of 2003 by a medical doctor who was infected by SARS by patients he was treating. He flew to Hong Kong and stayed at a hotel on the 9th floor for one night to visit his family. He was admitted to the hospital the next day where he died 10 days later. It is suspected that the doctor infected 17 people who were staying on the 9th floor of that hotel. Before the end of February, those guests and visitors of the hotel’s 9th floor started becoming ill and was admitted to hospitals throughout Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Singapore. This is where the majority of cases started. Healthcare workers who were caring for these people were unaware of how contagious and the magnitude of this disease. These healthcare workers would be infected and then spread it among their household. Simultaneously, the disease began spreading around the world along international air travel routes as guests at the hotel flew home to cities around the world (SARS Reference, 2003). This was possible because the incubation period of SARS was on......

Assignement 5 Case 15

...Danielle Fikes BUS 499 March 10, 2011 Assignment 5   1.      Describe how successful the business has been at recognizing and satisfying stakeholder interests. The sisters of Harry McNeely and Don McNeely were stock holders and their interests were being completely ignored. Whether you are family or not, if an individual is a stock owner, their voice is to be heard considering they own part of the company that is bringing in income. According to definition, a stockholder is, "one who owns shares of stock in a corporation or mutual fund," (stockholder, 2011). Family or not, there are still legalities that must be honored in this case. It seems that the brothers clearly violated their sisters rights as stockholder. It took unecessary time and heartache in order for the sisters to get anything in the end. This is a situation that could have and should have been resolved very early on. When the compnay was split into two different companies, they did not discuss the issue with the stakeholders. The two brothers just decided to do it themselves and basically figured life would continue on as normal. This is bad business. Stakeholders have a huge say so when it comes to what happens to a business. It is unfair to have people invest money into something and then not be able to say anything when it comes to changes.
