Club IT Part 2
*

After meeting with Lisa and Ruben, I came up with several ideas for Club IT to become more successful throughout. I researched several project development methodology that could bring Club IT to a whole new level as far as business and information technology. I was also able to give Lisa some suggestions on how to keep Club IT's edge as high energy and high impact as possible through club and public resources such as network applications (University of Phoenix, 2012). I have also identified three business problems at Club IT and plan on fixing those problems as soon as possible with my suggestions.
The project method methodology that I have decided to go with for the company is rapid application development. I chose this methodology because it can combine a number of tools and user requirements such as prototyping and joint application design to rapidly produce a high quality system (Rainer & Turban, 2009). This methodology is important because it allows the users in the company to be involved from the start as well as speed up systems development.
Three business problems at Club IT are the website, computer hardware, and Internet. These three problems are huge for Club IT because these problems are slowing Club IT's business down. By upgrading and fixing these problems, Club IT could be better than ever. Club IT's website has been a problem because the website lacks the same excitement and advertisement as Club IT itself. It is important that the club make necessary changes to the website to improve business and sales. Some solutions for the website would be to update the website with several features including a blog about the club, music and the entertainment where customers can enjoy reading about. Also another solution would be to enhance the website with…...

Race Day

...‘Race Day in Nevis’ The year 2008 was a year of celebration for the twin federation of St. Kitts and Nevis. September 19, 2008 marked the 25th anniversary of independence for my country, our ‘Silver Jubilee’. As a member of the local Brownie Guide Unit, I was excited to participate in the Independence Parade but this particular year, there was also another activity that sparked my interest. This year was the opening of the new drag strip in Nevis. Racing had become a huge sport in Nevis after the release of the movie ‘The Fast and the Furious’. I could recall one Sunday evening when my sister and I attended a party at Farms Estate where we watched that movie. The thrill and excitement in the air about racing were intense. People were bouncing off their seat trying to reenact scenes, shouting at each other, “Oh that’s my car, I won!” From that point onward racing soared. Many young men started to buy Japanese cars which were better for racing than the American built cars. However, many persons tried to race on the streets but were apprehended by the police, as street racing is illegal. There was one suitable place that these young men thought of which was the Long Point Road. That road led to the deep water pier and was mainly used to deliver or collect goods or cargo sent from overseas. The road is a mile long and at the time there were not many houses or businesses in the area. The young men took to that street. They would meet up at random times in the...

Before we can begin to understand a child’s behavior, we must first have at least a basic understanding of the child’s cultural identity, including race and ethnicity. Otherwise, our behavioral expectations will be invalid, and we will be guilty of ethnocentrism and enculturation.

Race

...Race For centuries and centuries, people have needed to categorize things to make them more real and palpable. That is why they categorized food, animals, plants and so many other things. Why would we not also classify humans according to different physical or cultural traits ? A lot of anthropologists have made different classifications to try and make people more comfortable with such big diversity in the world. People choose to agree or disagree with anthropological theories. To perfectly understand this topic, we need to have a deeper look at how anthropologists explain the concept of race. Then I will develop why I believe anthropologists have contributed to a better understanding of the issue. And in a last part how my understanding of the issue improved. The main work of an anthropologist is to analyse the world around them. The easiest way to do this is to travel and to be a full member of a community. In some cases, however they do not need to go away from their home to discover different cultures (Metcalf 2005, p. 1). In today's multicultural world, people are coming from everywhere in the world and thereby giving the country an opportunity to make it more culturally diverse. We do not live in a fairy tale world and the concept of race established by people over centuries remains in many ways. Many anthropologists believe that the first idea of race was established by the Europeans' settlement in America during the 17th century. At this time Europeans...

...Historical Report on Race Tammy Fallin ETH/125 May 5, 2013 University of Phoenix Historical Report on Race The final chapter of a historian author by the name of Marian Anderson in a book titled “A Voice of Hope”; four questions are answered from an African Americans viewpoint. Anderson has a chapter in the book that strictly speaks about what African Americans faced daily for many centuries. In the history of the United States, African Americans have always had hard times. It took a long four years between slavery and freedom that ended slavery. Even today, African Americans are faced with many struggles that are talked about in this book. The experiences that African Americans had throughout history in the United States were many. African Americans were slaves for many, they were forced to pick cotton, work on farms, clean, cook, and women were even raped and some pregnant by their master. Many African Americans have dealt with discrimination and faced struggles to earn the rights in America. Attending school has always been an issue for African Americans; today they have colleges that are Historically for Black people. African American slaved arrived in Virginia in 1619; they came to America in ships where they were mistreated by being tied up and not able to use the restroom. Slaves had responsibly but they also had rules. They were prohibited to talk to other African Americans, they could not buy or sell anything, no slave could own property, leaving their...

Death Race

...In reality during the Death Races people don't really have many injuries. The important thing is that the racers are prepared to handle all emergencies. Even when the racers get inquired they keep going. The creators of the Death race don’t give much information about what you’re going to do and what you need to be trained for. They just want you to show up and are prepared to face any obstacles. You really don’t know what kind of injuries you might get or maybe you won’t get injured. Many of the races quit because of their injuries. They don’t want to their injuries to get worse. To others racers, inquires motivates them to finish the race. This is exactly what Ella who is a racers, she broke her shin open. Even though she was in pain and blood was gushing from her wound she finishes the race. Many racers who have done the Spartan Race have said that it was great experiences even though they went through some pains during the race because of their injuries. Also the injuries don’t prevent them from coming back. Many of the racers come back because they had great time doing it. Sometimes the races die during the race or after the race. For example Jeremiah Morris, 28, died from apparent heatstroke in a hospital a day after that event. Robert A. Fecteau II says he was paralyzed after diving head-first into a muddy pool. The Spartan race can be dangerous but that doesn’t stop people. They don’t care what the consequences of the race. They want to feel like they accomplish......

...Teresita Dowd RACE The meanings and expectations a society creates and attaches to groups based on perceived “Important differences” is defined as Race. Race is a thing that society has created as an identifying characteristic that is important in classifying people in negative or positive ways. Race is a concept that people have created which began as an idea, became a thing, and was deemed as important and accordingly impacted our beliefs and actions in enormous ways; thus, it is constructed socially. Race although it is made up by society is still important in the way that we attach meanings and expectations to the different members of society. Race, while made up, is still important in the way that we attach meanings and expectations to the members of different race groups in society. Every society constructs race differently and as time moves forward ideas about race change and evolve. In today’s world, racial stratification is based on the physical characteristic of skin color. This racial stratification helps decide your access to resources for certain racial groups, and raises a person’s risk of having or not having things solely based on the color of the skin that they are born into.(Student Work 75) These differences are only as important as society elects them to be, and there are no deep rooted advantages or disadvantages to having any of these characteristics except those that society has created. In American society, being White is conceived as being...

Mixed Race

...Mixed race or family: Black Americans and the Okinawan In the modern society, interactions are based on the interaction compatibility of people rather than different social, economic or cultural affiliations. In an argument by Mori, social interactions in the modern society are based on the ability of one person to interact with the other and their ability to live a compatible life (34). This is dissimilar to previous centuries where interactions were based on the cultural and social beliefs one was affiliated to. Additionally, the skin color of a person held so much significance when it came to interactions. On an issue such as marriage, cultural affiliation was a great determinant as people preferred life partners of the same race and culture. However, the perception of different races over the other has change significantly as people are interacting with any person regardless of their skin color of cultural belief (Santrock 56). The versatility level of the modern society has been helpful to shape issues such as mixed marriages as people view the practice as a normal action in the society. This has significantly raised the level and ease at which interactions are governed in the society. This paper will analyze the cultural affiliations of the Black Americans and the Okinawan. Additionally, the paper will analyze the different provisions of the two races and their depth of interactions. The paper will also relate the comparison to the topic on mixed marriage race...

Race

...What is race? Common responses in the Sociology 222 class were, 'race is something we are born with' and 'race is the same as skin colour'. When looking at these statements from a Sociological perspective, we have to ask ourselves a few relevant questions. Why are sociologists critical of the above statements? How do research writers challenge ideas about social construction and institutionalisation of race under apartheid and colonialism? This essay is going to discuss a number of readings in order to answer the above questions. This essay will also look at the relevance of the Jane Elliot experiment for thinking about, and understanding of race as a social construction. Lastly, this essay will discuss what we can learn about the dynamics of apartheid from the experiences of Sandra Laing in the film 'Skin'. In conclusion this essay will evaluate the various opinions and research done on the matter of race, and how race is socially constructed. Firstly, we have to look at how and why sociologists are critical of race as a biological phenomenon. Race is widely discussed and debated all over the world. The main sociological focus is the effects of social race and how race is used to categorize people into groups. When we look back in history, we see that race was seen as a biological factor for many centuries. When explorers from Europe in the New World discovered people who looked different, raised questions such as ‘Did God only make one species of humanity?’ and...

... view hispanic or Latino racial and or ethnic group. I don’t know very much about the culture I will admit but i’m interested in learning Spanish!Hispanics are the fastest growing ethnic group in the United States.As of 2012, Hispanics constitute 17% of the United States population, or 53 million people. This figure includes 38 million Hispanophone Americans, making the US home to the largest community of Spanish speakers outside of Mexico, having surpassed Argentina, Colombia, and Spain within the last decade. This information was provided by the Latino and national origin in 2010. Latinos overall are the second largest ethnic group in the United States, after non-Hispanic Whites. Both terms Hispanic and Latino are not a race, but instead are an ethnicity, sharing a common culture, history, language, and heritage. I believe people get that confused because I know I did. For example I am black which is my race but I am also African American which is my ethnicity; also I am not the same as an African meaning a person born in Africa. A Hispanic and Latino can be of any race. In the United States, most Hispanics and Latinos are either White or Mestizo. Hispanics are people from any Spanish-speaking country including Spain, and this definition is used to define the "Hispanic or Latino" population in the United States. However, the term Latinos seems to be more difficult to explain. Some people believe that Latinos are people from any Spanish-speaking or Portuguese-speaking...

This isn't one of those potted stories of uplift and doesn't end quite the way we expect, although we do get to see the real Sandra Laing right at the end." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times "Of the innumerable, untold family tragedies that followed the imposition of the racist restrictions of the apartheid regime, the story of Sandra Laing is one of the most devastating. Skin tells her story with deep compassion and, for all its starkness and tragedy, it is a work of great beauty and inspiration." Barry Ronge, The Sunday Times (South Africa) "The journey to racial tolerance, which some people take for granted, has not been easy and over the years many people have struggled with the idea of accepting others as equals. It is within this context that all South Africans should be happy that a movie has been made that tells this story of race and racial tolerance which, thankfully, is slowly taking root in our society ." Edward Tsumele , The Sowetan, South Africa "The English actress Sophie Okonedo plays Sandra from age 17 to recent times. She takes her from shy kid to young mother to mature woman, through an amazing series of travails. At each turn, things become both more absurd and more tragic. Fabian has done a superb job. It's a scarifying, haunting film; Laing's story is......

Race

...Professor Cedillo Sociology 100 2015 October 23 Race Race is defined as a category or group of people having hereditary traits that set them apart. While race revolves around the idea of biological traits, ethnicity is based on a shared cultural heritage. Sociologists and other social scientists believe that race is a socially constructed concept. It is an idea that was created in society to justify inequality. One way that race perpetuates itself in society is through stereotypes. A stereotype is an oversimplified set of beliefs about people from a certain group in society. There are numerous stereotypes for people of all racial and ethnic categories. While most of these stereotypes are negative, the stereotypes for some groups are much more damaging than others. For instance, whites have always been stereotyped as being racist, greedy, and bad dancers. Compare this to some of the more damaging stereotypes of African Americans which include uneducated, violent, and unemployable. Clearly, these stereotypes are much more damaging. Nina Revoyr’s novel, Southland, provides a glimpse into the injustice, scandal, and struggle in Los Angeles from the 1940s to the 1990s due to its racial composition. The novel contains a unique cast of characters who, although often times interact with conflict, are forced to live side-by-side one another in their separate attempts to attain the American Dream. Southland proves to be a story that illustrates how ethnic, racial...

Race War

...Kynidi Miller The Coming Race War Won't Be About Race This article was posted in Times Magazine on August 17th, 2014. The author gives their opinion on how they believe that in the near future, the upcoming conflicts in America will not be about race anymore. It will not necessarily be about black on white crimes nor white on black crimes, it will be much more than that. What I took from this, is that it’ll be based on power and class warfare. In the article, they used examples from the past from shootings at historically black colleges to recent police shootings of black men in our country. The conflicts begin whether it's about race discrimination or police discrimination. And in reality, they can go hand in hand. Considering that the black on white crime isn't nearly as effective toward the white on black crime as far as impact on a social class, the count is immeasurable. Not to pull the race card inappropriately, but African Americans are linked to poverty because of their race by default. Poverty is linked to less prestige and that is linked to being considered a criminal and helpless in our stand of America. In ways, I do agree with the writer considering it was written two years ago. Two years later their prediction of higher death rates in the black community or in general from police will grow. Slowly, it is becoming more apparent that the police are not only being brutal toward African Americans, but brutality against whites or any other minorities are...

...Comparative essay on race/ethnicity ENG 125 – Introduction to Literature Instructor Benjamin Daw May 15, 2011 Comparative essay on race/ethnicity In this comparative essay, I will talk over the role and ethnicity in “The Welcome Table”, written by Alice Walker and “What it’s like to be a black girl”, written by Patricia Smith by exploring the difficulties that black women face, no matter of age or where they may live. When it comes to these two stories and poem both written by black women, the one thing both writers have in common is their main character is a black women or girl. Both have dealt with some form of discrimination because of the color of their skin is black. In Alice Walker, “The Welcome Table”, she writes in third-person omniscient trying to explain to the audience how this old black lady just wanted to worship inside of a church, any church. This older black woman has finally found a church, once she was inside she did not even realize that this church was for the white folks – all she wanted was to worship the lord. The older woman in this story was not afraid of the fact that all the members were white, this is the first sign of discrimination against her based off her race no one wanted her to stay there but she was determined to worship the lord inside of this church. Everyone in the church wanted her to leave the church, telling her this is not your church and she did not belong there. For some unknown...
