... about them. These things may be based on your own real-life experiences, or they may come completely out of your imagination. Think about some of your favorite stories. How would you describe the characters? Where do the stories take place? What is the story about? CHARACTERS The Main Character Begin with a main character. To do this, think of some of the interesting people you have known. You may decide to write about a character that is based on a person you know, or you may want to give an animal or thing the characteristics of a person. Do you have a favorite uncle who does really funny things? Do you know a kid who is really smart but maybe a little clumsy, too? Do you have a pet that seems to think he is human? Once you start thinking about all the people you know and what makes them special and different from each other, you will begin to get a lot of great ideas for characters. The Plot Of course, your character or characters will need a story to be part of. They need to do something interesting or have a special experience. Think of some of the things you are interested in and like to do. You might want to write a story in which the characters play sports, solve a mystery or win a contest. Something exciting, embarrassing or scary that has happened to you or a friend can also be a starting point for a good story. The Setting When you have an idea for a plot and the characters it will involve, you will need to decide where your story will take place.......

...Kimyen Soto Assignment 2 June 12, 2012 Practical or Impossible? Woodrow Wilson's ideas about administration to some may have seemed practical but to others it seemed impossible. I believe his ideas about administration were very practical and workable if people decided to try and look at it in his point of view. Some of the distinctions he believes in which wasn't very clearly stated by him. There are advantages and disadvantages in using such a dichotomy today as a way to advance that field of study as well. Wilson's idea of being able to take pieces of other countries policies and break them down to what the United States can use within their administration is a great way to see what has worked and what hasn't in other countries. By looking into the other countries administration structures and studying how the countries have dealt with those rules and policies, you can see what may benefit our country to the best of its abilities. There are so many different countries out there with different views of administration and to take a piece out of different countries and make our own out of them would definitely work in my opinion. Especially since the United States is the melting pot of the world, what better way to make the administration side have a piece of different parts of the world to make our dichotomy work for us. Some people see this country as a place where they have freedoms to do and say whatever they want to do. Most other countries have rules...

The workforce that makes iPods in China live in poor inland farming provinces where work is scarce and head to coastal areas in the south where factories produce the world’s consumer goods. The only reason they can survive in these cities is because work opportunities in manufacturing plants. It has been reported that Chinese factory workers have working hours, pay and other unsafe workplace issues that are exacerbated by a greater array of more hazardous chemicals when manufacturing iPods. Workers earn per month around one-quarter the UK and USA retail price. These workers who assemble iPods work 15 hours a day for US$50 per month. Chinese employees also work and sleep at these plants, sleeping in dormitories with more than 100 people, outside visitors are not allowed, employees have little choice about overtime and they stand at their posts for long hours without being allowed to take a rest. Media outlets sense a strong sense of responsiveness in linking one of the best selling products globally with Chinese workplace conditions. Apple has...

...Introducing Sociology SSCI210 ABSTRACT Unemployment is very well known in today’s economy. It affects millions of people in different ways. Many people lose their homes, cars, and friends when they become unemployed. People often do not realize the effect of unemployment until it happens to them. There have been many studies and articles on unemployment recently. Unemployment in recent years has risen exponentially due to our economic malaise. The findings of these recent studies are disheartening according to an article in The New York Times. (The Enduring Consequences of Unemployment March 28, 2012 The New York Times) It has been found that people who lose their jobs suffer lasting damage to their earning potential, their health and the prospects of their children. The longer it takes to find a job the deeper the damage appears to be. In a article by the Washington Post The-long term impact of unemployment it has been found that people who are unemployed eventually dip into their savings, retirement funds, and in many cases borrow money to pay rent, bills, and buy the basic necessities to survive such as groceries and everyday household products. With the prices of gas, food and many other products on the rise it seems like people who are unemployed will continue to struggle even after finding a job. According to studies nothing has been seen like this since the Great Depression when unemployment was at its highest in American history. Many people will...

... Motorværksted had been so impressed by me so he offered me a apprenticeship when my basic program was finished. So the 8/20 2010 started my apprenticeship at Svendborg Motorværksted. Svendborg Motorværksted is located in Tved and have about 20 employees and 5 apprentices. It was Ejvind Jensen (my boss) who started the company about 12 years ago. Before he started the company he worked for Petersen and Sørensen as work leader. We have 2 workshops our main workshop is in Tved and our other workshop is located on Fayard just outside of Munkebo. The reason why we have 2 workshops is because otherwise we wouldn’t have enough work for 25 high trained ship fitters so if we didn’t have the other workshop we would have to fire some employees. The different between the 2 workshops is that we had a smith workshop and a big hall with spare parts in Tved, while the workshop on Fayard is closer to the ships. Personally I enjoy0 being on Fayard mostly because I often have to work more and there is more working with engines than in Tved. We are an international company so we have a lot of customers from all over the world, that means we operate on a lot of different ships and different brands of engines. For example there is the MAN B&W brand, the Wartsila and the CAT. The MAN B&W specialize in big engines while CAT only makes small engines. The three brands are properly my favorites engines to repair, mainly because I find them more comfortable to work on. When it comes to......

With having to go to the city of Los Angles to schedule an appointment in order for the building to be at the requirements by the law. Once the state inspector is in the building to see the size and height is at the minimum, we can allow finishing the interior. If the state inspector does not approve the license, we will have to fix the errors, causing us to have a minimum of, the most, five days delay. We have to hurry and fix the errors in order not to have more than five days delay, while we can meet the other deadlines on time without having to be put hold. With the license being put on hold, there will be an additional cost to the carrier or the customer, leaving us with an additional cost within our budget. If we have money left over, this is the time we will narrow down the options in order to cover the cost of unexpected cost. Once the cost is paid and the errors are almost finished, go to the city of LA to schedule an appointment as soon as possible in order to have the inspector come through. D.

...Tropical Hut is one, if not the oldest, fast food joint in the Philippines. It started in 1962 when the Que family had this idea of putting up a coffee shop within the confines of their supermarket, thus, Tropical Hut Hamburger was born. Now, it has more than 50 branches nationwide and still growing, proving that it can hold its stance in the fast food arena. Before Jollibee, before McDonald's, before Burger King, before anyone else, it seems, there is Tropical Hut Hamburger. And hamburger it is, indeed the best it could ever be. But that was long ago. Now, Tropical is just a vestige of its former self. Everyone suspects that their hamburger is where Jollibee's came from - They almost have the same taste. Their fried chicken is also just like Jollibee's, but this time it was Tropical who copied it. Tropical has other food selections, like Bistek (a local version of beef steak or strips) and other sandwiches. However, the place is not world class. It is not as clean or as well kept as McDonald's or Jollibee. And they have a very poor image.

... created an environment that was too harsh to produce enough nurses to meet the climbing demands. Even despite its obvious disadvantage, this model stayed around until the twentieth century, when people started to fight for nursing independent rights and public recognition. (West,Griffith,Iphofen, 2007, p.125) This too helped cause a decline in the number of nurses needed in the healthcare system, due to growing populations in cities because of immigration and the expanding industrial businesses. A Historical Perspective When people realized that they needed nurses immediately to help fluctuate the shortage in the other direction, they opened hospital nurse training schools. These schools provided, “cheap labor force of female nurses worked 12-hour days, 6 days a week, 50 weeks per year in a strict, paternalistic, demanding environment..”(West,Griffith,Iphofen, 2007, p.125). Because of this, nursing was still seen as a job best for women and required no intelligence or skills (West,Griffith,Iphofen, 2007, p.125). Physicians and hospitals made it very difficult for nurses to be recognized for their contributions and apply full nursing practices. Due to the fact, that the view of medicine moved to the institution and away from public health also had gotten in the way of the general public seeing how nurses were vital to the healthcare process. “The primary problem surrounding recruitment and retention issues was a continual lack of consistent adequate financial...

...Definition of Race Race is a group of people of common ancestry, distinguished from others by physical characteristics, such as hair type, the color of eyes and skin. Race as a social construction is changing as time goes on. Our daily lives are affected by race whether we are aware of it or not. We can see all over the world that race has affected various domains of our lives. From the types of jobs we have the amount of money we make, the kinds of friends we keep, the food we eat and even the schools we will attend. The entire foundation of race is constructed on a platform based on the color of people’s skin. The construction of social reality is based on social groups and the agreements and disagreements that are made based on the acceptance of certain constructions when it comes to our existence. There is nothing biologically real about race. I have learned that that there is no certain identification of race that exists from our collective agreements, acceptance, and positions other than our existing with one another. Race is a social construction that has real consequences and effects. Race shapes the way we view ourselves and those around us. We shouldn’t have an objective knowledge about race. We can know what race is and how it works being aware that regardless of the various shifts in the meaning of race that they have occurred through history and going to occur geographically but this should not lead to skepticism and the destruction of positive social...
