The Problem and Its Setting
Co-curricular activities are big part of our educational system. They play a great role for the students to develop or discover their talents, meet new friends and build self-esteem. Even they are done outside the classroom; most of the co-curricular activities are academic-based.
Many had been researching for the effects of co-curricular activities in the academic performance of the students. Some say that students who are involved tend to have higher grade-point averages, better attendance records, lower drop out rates and fewer discipline problems.
Although, most researchers have found positive effects of different activity programs among the students, there are some of its negative effects. Students tend to forget their works in classroom and focus their attention toward co-curricular activities.
Most studies have shown that co-curricular activities have positive effects on students not only academically, but mentally, socially and physically. Students learn important morals and values and develop new skills. They gain a sense of self-respect, self-esteem, self-confidence and self-discipline. Co-curricular activities also help in physical development, especially students who are involved in the field of sports.

Statement of the Problem

...Workplace Struggles Jose R. Rodriguez COMM/215 April 25, 2011 Cassundra White Introduction In today’s work forces people are face with many difficult problems. Many businesses lose time and money dealing with such problems. Some of these problems managers, supervisors and compiles have to face come from the individual instead of the foundation and structure of a business. Other key problems are; dealing with procrastination, lack of accountability, discipline, drugs and alcohol in the workplace and enforcing company polices and rules. Even-though all these have their own sub-categories they all play a major issue for almost every company known to man. Background Carl robins works as a recruiter at a new campus for ABC, Inc. However, even though his only worked there for six months his faces serious problems and has found himself in quite a predicament. After hiring fifteen new trainees for his operational supervisor, and scheduling an orientation for new hires to take place in mid-June. After assuring his supervisor Monica Carrolls that the work she ask would be done by the time she wanted, he stated noticing everything was going wrong and time was running out. Soon he realized that the paper work his supervisor asked for was not completed and files were missing. The missing files consisted of several missing applications that weren’t completed on the new trainee’s transcripts. Also he found out none of them had been sent to the clinic for a mandatory drug screen...

Users will not encounter major differences between the two versions of the hardware. Company F will not be providing additional support for the upgrade and has not incurred significant costs to create it. Question Should F record the revenue from the sale of the software in accordance with ASC 985-605? Answer Before ASU 2009-14 No. As noted in ASC 985-605-15-3(c), software that is more than incidental to the products in an arrangement as a whole is within the scope of ASC 985-605. Indicators of software that is more than incidental to other products include software that is a significant focus of marketing efforts, software that is sold separately, PCS, and significant 32 Section 1 — Background and Scope Software Revenue Recognition: A Roadmap to Applying ASC 985-605 costs incurred that are within the scope of ASC 985-20. None of these indicators are present in the case of the software upgrade provided by F. Therefore, the upgrade is deemed incidental to the hardware sold by F and would not be accounted for under ASC 985-605. After ASU 2009-14 No. As noted in ASC 985-605-15-3(c), software that is more than incidental to the products in an arrangement as a whole is within the scope of ASC 985-605, except in certain arrangements specified in ASC 985-605-15-4.

... impact of nurse leader behaviors, is important. Of equal importance is the need to examine the consequences of nurses’ work engagement, including performance-based healthcare quality outcomes. Finally, the study of nurses’ work engagement as an important moderator or mediator between nurses’ educational preparation and staffing ratios and patient outcomes should be considered. 6. Conclusion As we continue to search for ways to improve healthcare quality and decrease healthcare costs the identification of additional nurse work-related factors that are predictive of nurse performance and patient and organizational outcomes is needed. Work engagement may be one such factor. The study of nurses’ engagement at work and its relationship to work performance and healthcare organizational outcomes can be best achieved by addressing current research methodological limitations—the first of which involves building upon a conceptually consistent definition and measurement of this construct.

... the wealth of his company. He did so by making working conditions absolutely dreadful. Frick had increased hours and decreased pay and rest. The workers of Homestead went on strike and Frick responded by renting his own police force, which resulted in multiple deaths because the workers wouldn’t move from the entrance of the factory in fear of being replaced. Frick was fired but the damage was done and Carnegie had to rebound once again. These three men all started a legacy and huge rivalry amongst each other that catapulted the United States economy into the world leader by far. For many years they pretty much ran the country and controlled the movement of industrial technology. In time, a new tycoon would take part in J.P. Morgan. Morgan came from a long line of financial minds including his father, Junius Spencer Morgan. J.P. Morgan was a man who invested in businesses and consolidated rival businesses into joint operating entities with a stake in it for him. He was known as a man that got things done and was always really wealthy. When Morgan finally started branching out on his own ventures, he was always reminded by his father to make safe investments. J.P. always heeded his father’s advice and for many years, continued what he had started, following in his footsteps. Eventually though, great minds meet and this is what happened to Thomas Edison and Morgan. Edison was a great inventor and attracted many investors but none as big as Morgan. He was...

... teachers of the faith during this time of trailblazing. The movement known as Anabaptist has begun. Founders Conrad Grebel: Son of a Zurich Councilor educated in ancient languages in Vienna and Paris. One-time friend of Zwingli, he joined in 1522 the group of faithful Brethren around Zwingli. By 1524 he began to oppose Zwingli's attempts to form a State Church, arguing for an independent and voluntaristic assembly. After his baptism, Conrad traveled the canton promoting Baptist beliefs publicly baptizing hundreds. Eventually he was arrested and thrown into prison where he died in 1526. Georg Blaurock: A former monk and fiery orator. Being a foreigner, he was whipped and sent out of Zurich after several episodes in prison on January 17th 1527. He then took the Anabaptist message to Biel, Berne and the Catholic province of Tyrol. Felix Manz: A citizen of Zurich and a Hebrew scholar. The Anabaptists frequently met in his mother's house. He was drowned for Anabaptist beliefs on January 5th 1527 with Zwingli's approval, mother and son forced to watch on. None recanted. Manz was the first victim of a Protestant State Church. 11 others soon followed. Wilhelm Ruebin and Simon Stumpf: Pastors of Basle and Hongg respectively. They came to Baptist views and were expelled and went on to spread their views through Switzerland and Southern Germany. Tragically, after doing much to establish the Evangelical Anabaptists, Rueblin was to repudiate the movement in 1535. The key teachings...

... the big bang theory and the universe we find today called inflation. The notion that during the first roughly 10 to the minus 34 s the universe underwent exponential expansion, doubling in size at least 90 times. The big bang theory leaves several major questions unanswered. One is the original cause of the big bang itself. Several answers have been proposed to address this fundamental question, but none has been proven—and even adequately testing them has proven to be a challenge. The big bang theory has various problems or weaknesses. The first weakness is that of the horizon. The horizon problem correlates with the cosmic microwave background issue. The microwave “background” makes more sense as the limiting temperature of space heated by starlight than as the remnant of a fireball. The expression “the temperature of space” is the title of chapter 13 of Sir Arthur Eddington’s famous 1926 work. He calculated the minimum temperature which any body in space would cool to, given that it is immersed in the radiation of distant starlight. With no adjustable parameters, he obtained 3°K (later refined to 2.8°K [[5]]), essentially the same as the observed, so-called “background”, temperature. According to Hawkin the big bang theory states that the universe is thought to have had zero size, and so to have been infinitely hot. Also the microwave background radiation comes from widely separate parts of the sky. However it can be shown that these regions are too far apart to...

..., nor interviewed for them, while less senior whites were informed of the positions and hired; and when another manager recommended to Patterson's supervisor a different black to fill a position as a data processor, the supervisor said that he did not “need any more problems around here,” and would “search for additional people who are not black.” When Patterson complained about her workload, she was given no help, and in fact was given more work and told she always had the option of quitting. Patterson was laid off after 10 years with MCU. She brought suit under 42 U.S.C. section 1981, alleging harassment, failure to promote and discharge because of her race. None of the racially harassing conduct which McLean engaged in involved the section 1981 prohibition against refusing to make a contract with Patterson or impairing Patterson's ability to enforce her existing contract rights with McLean. It is clear that Patterson is attacking conditions of employment which came into existence after she formed the contract to work for McLean. Since section 1981 only prohibits the interference with the making or enforcement of contracts because of race, performance of the contract is not actionable under section 1981. Section 1981's language is specifically limited to making and enforcing contracts. To permit race discrimination cases involving post-formation actions would also undermine the detailed and well-crafted procedures for conciliation and resolution of Title VII claims...

... divorced families has grown from almost none when this study started to a full library, longitudinal studies that follow the course of divorce in children to adulthood are few. We briefly note findings from studies by Amato, Cherlin, and Hetherington. All are based on large-scale sample populations in the United States or the United Kingdom. They use standardized rating scales and symptom checklists, administered either over the phone or in person to parents, teachers, and, as the child grew up, the adult child, for their findings about psychological and social outcomes. Despite differences in particulars, these and other long-term studies using these methods largely agree that there were significant but relatively small differences between adults from divorced families and those who grew up in intact homes. Thus in a full-scale review of research over the 1990s, Amato and his colleagues reported that adults and children scored lower than their counterparts in married-couple families on a variety of indicators of well-being. They found that adults raised in divorced families suffered from a deficit in social skills and had special problems in handling conflicts within their own marriages (Amato, 2000; Amato & DeBoer, 2001). Cherlin and his colleagues drew their divorce population from a long-term, nationwide public health study in the United Kingdom, begun in 1958 (Cherlin, Chase-Lansdale, & McRae, 1988; Cherlin, Kiernan, & ChaseLansdale, 1995).

... requirements totaling $210 million (US). A budget of only $60 million (an amount capped by VWAG, the parent company of VWoA) made some degree of disappointment inevitable. But the intensity of pushback against the new process was surprising. The ELT had endorsed the idea of improving upon the old way these decisions were made, via unstructured debate among executive sponsors. The new process, it was agreed, would make trade-offs explicit and link projects and the core business processes they impacted with VWoA corporate goals. An orderly, rational process would replace what in the past had sometimes been haphazard. But now questions were being raised about whether the new process was right for VWoA. Some business units had seen none of their projects funded. Whispers throughout the company suggested that the process was “too theoretical” and noted that IT infrastructure projects had been treated separately, not forced through the same process, which many considered unfair. As Matulovic peered through the window into an overcast sky, he wondered whether he should order exceptions to the process. If a project was small and just below the line of funded projects, maybe IT should figure out a way to get it done. Or maybe he should stand his ground and defend the new process. Matulovic did not work for the other members of the ELT, but he did have to work with them. Whatever he decided could certainly affect working relationships, so he would need to consider his...
