Managerial roles that I chose for Rick Federico include the leader role, monitor role, and entrepreneur role. I feel that the leader role is appropriate because Mr. Federico’s leadership ability is evident in the short video and he is already utilizing this role successfully. Specifically, according to Lussier and Achua (2013) the mark of an effective leader can be observed in the leader’s decision-making ability, the ability to influence others, and in their inclination to treat employees as assets. Han (2007) expands on our textbook’s definition of a leader and adds that establishing expectations regarding work quality, decision-making responsibility, and directing time commitments to the job are all outcomes of an effective leader also. I feel that based on the video Mr. Federico demonstrated competency in all of these areas. The second managerial role that I chose was the monitor role. Han (2007) explains that the effective monitor is constantly seeking to scan and monitor the environment in which he participates, much like Mr. Federico is seen doing on the video. Mr. Federico appears to have a predisposition towards this role that can be seen in his desire to stay abreast of current products and trends in the culinary field and identify those that are working well in his organization alongside his chef. In the video, Mr. Federico is seen inquiring extensively about how the customers as well as the other chefs are identifying with their products and how those constituents feel about choices that the organization is making as a whole in regards to their menu. It seems as if he wants to make sure that the relationship between the customer and the organization is continuously refined so that the customers are getting the best product and that the organization is able to offer customers what they desire. Mr. Federico’s need to monitor his organization as well as...

Christian Life: showing the qualities that are thought of as typical of a Christian, Christ like.. Some people say that we are just evolutionary result of the survival of the fittest Others think of reincarnation Most of our lives, we have been searching for a purpose for our lives, one that has a deeper meaning than just the basic action of existing on this planet. We felt that our lives were meant for something; and something meaningful and worthwhile that would give us a true reason to live. We searched for this purpose in things like relationships, a career, a job, a hobby, in school, and in many more things, only to find disappointment at every turn; because though these things could preoccupy us for a moment, they would ultimately fail at fulfilling our spiritual desire for a meaningful life. Then we find God, and we feel that we see our purpose clearly. We are full of excitement and hopeful to see what God will do with our lives. The overwhelming joy and excitement that drives us motivates us to share the good news with everyone around us, telling them of the great purpose that God has in store for our lives. We devote ourselves to learning more, growing more, and doing more for God. We surround ourselves with more and more people who call themselves Christians to glean as much as we can from them, astounded at the miraculous......

Holding Fast

...CEO Peter Walsh faces a classic innovator’s dilemma. His company, Crescordia, produces high-quality metal plates, pins, and screws that orthopedic surgeons use to repair broken bones. In fact, because the company has for decades refused to compromise on quality, there are orthopedic surgeons who use nothing but Crescordia hardware. And now these customers have begun to clamor for the next generation technology: resorbable hardware. Resorbables offer clear advantages over the traditional hardware. Like dissolving sutures, resorbable plates and screws are made of biodegradable polymers. They hold up long enough to support a healing bone, then gradually and harmlessly disintegrate in the patient’s body. Surgeons are especially looking forward to using resorbables on children, so kids won’t have to undergo a second operation to remove the old hardware after their bones heal, a common procedure in pediatrics. The new products, however, are not yet reliable; they fail about 8% of the time, sometimes disintegrating before the bone completely heals and sometimes not ever fully disintegrating. That’s why Crescordia, mindful of its hard-earned reputation, has delayed launching a line using the new technology. But time is running out. A few competitors have begun to sell resorbables despite their imperfections, and these companies are picking up market share. Should Crescordia join the fray and risk tarnishing its brand? Or should the company sit tight until it can offer a perfect......

Percy Jackson Dialectical Journal

...2) The book starts off with a trouble maker in high school, Percy Jackson. This young man soon realizes that his life is about to flip upside down really quick as soon as he finds out that he is the son of a Greek god, Poseidon. His mom tells him that the city is no place for him anymore and he is now going to go to a training camp for young decedents of the gods. Percy learns how to use his powers and then he decides to set out on an adventure to rescue his mom who had recently been taken by a bad creature. He must stop a big war that is about to take place because of Zeus’ master bolt which was stolen by one of Percy’s friends, while at the same time rescuing his mother from the underworld. He then sets out on his adventure and discovers that the bolt was in his friends shield and he took off from the underworld and went to Olympus and gave Zeus his bolt back. Happily, ever after. 3) The significance of this title is the story it portrays for the book. The title alone implies that someone has stolen lightning which is what the author wants you to think because it seems un-human like to steal lightning so it gets you thinking. As the book says “Zeus sent out his sons and daughters to find the stolen lightning bolt” (P.357). This tells you that there was someone who had stolen the bolt from Zeus and this proves that the title of the book foreshadowed this by leading us to believe that there had been someone who has stolen the lightning. 4) The setting of this book was......

Percy Jackson Archetypes

...In the stories Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief and “The legend of Perseus”, the Legend of Perseus is modernized in Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief by changing the events, Hero Archetypes, and themes. Have you ever wonder how Roman stories are like today and how they are made modern to meet your expectations? Events are one of the main thing modernized from ¨The legend of Perseus¨ to Percy Jackson the Lightning Thief. The events are modernized through the Hero’s Journey because in “The legend of Perseus” Perseus never meet the mentor and instead journeyed on his own “Perseus bid his mother good-by and set out to search for Medusa” (D'aulaires,117) unlike Percy Jackson who had several mentors Grover, Poseidon, and Chiron (Percy Jackson The Lightning Thief). Next, the events are modernized from the Hero’s journey once again. In “The legend of Perseus” since Perseus never really refused his call to adventure since he was somewhat forced into it as a child when Acrisius tried put him and his mom in a chest and threw them into the sea to blame on Poseidon. “He put Danae and her son, Perseus, in a chest and threw it into the sea”(D'aulaires, 115). Percy on the other hand, had refused to leave his mother and go to camp half blood but he Crossed the Threshold (Percy Jackson the Lightning Thief). Lastly, the events are modernized through plot structure. When Perseus in the “Legend of Perseus” went out to slay Medusa not only was he well aware he was going to kill Medusa but......

Some reasons Percy has ADHD is that he blurts things out, he can not find a activity that he likes, and he always lots of energy.

Cameron Willingham Case

...Evan Stabolitis Professor Max Seymour Political Science 6th April, 2014 Case Cameron Willingham Willingham was immediately prosecuted for arson and the murder of his three little girls to cover up the supposed “abusing” of them. Stacy Kuykendall said there was no way he abused the children and that they were spoiled rotten. Think about it, how could a man abuse two twin one year old little girls and a two year old little girl. According to his wife he was also the best the father she had ever seen and the most loving man she’d ever met. When these things are put together, there is no way he could have done it, there is no reason why. Some of the evidence gathered against Willingham was charcoal starter fluid which was under the grill under the front porch which was melted, but some starter fluid was found inside the door next to the grill. This evidence shouldn’t have held any weight because of the fire hose pressure probably blowing some of the fluid into the house while trying to put the fire out. There was three starting points in the house where an accelerant was supposedly put to start the fire because of the marks of a “fast and hot” start of the fire. Later in the case a fellow inmate of Willingham testified against him saying that Willingham had indeed told him he did start the fire. The inmate that gave this information should have not have been of any importance because him and Willingham had gotten into an argument days before. The inmates background was......

Although the song “Drive” was the only intended track to have a pop side to it the label demanded new songs to be written that had a more alternative sound. Several New songs were written including the ballad “Undivided” and the melodic track “Something More” both songs were some of the last songs recorded and were added on Stuck to replace the 2 songs that were removed.

...Doran Roberts 11JA November11, 2014 English Language – Purpose Driven Essay The book “The Purpose Driven Life” written by Christian writer Rick Warren is one of the top selling Christian books of all time. This book impacted me in many ways. This book tells me that I was created for God’s family, fashioned to be like Christ, designed to serve and ordained for God’s mission. This book impacts me most when it reassures me that I was created to serve (ministry) and because of this I have a better understanding of my life and why it should be purpose driven. In chapter 3 the quote that really popped out to me was “Nothing matters more than knowing God’s purpose for your life, and nothing can compensate for not knowing them.” This quote brought me to the realization that when I know what God called me to do I will have a better appreciation for God and his purpose for my life. When I know my purpose in life I would have a drive to fulfill my purpose on earth and strive everyday to continually better myself. I never knew what my purpose in life was until I had a transforming experience that brought me to better knowledge of what my purpose in life was. All my life I had a passion for playing the drums. I started out at the tender age of five beating on pots and pans. Anything that made a sound I used it. My God mother and God-brother saw deep inside of me that my purpose in life was to play the drums for the...
