are on the road, however, irresponsible cell phone users are more
than irritating: They are putting our lives at risk. Many of us have
witnessed drivers so distracted by dialing and chatting that they
resemble drunk drivers, weaving between lanes, for example, or
nearly running down pedestrians in crosswalks. A number of bills to
regulate use of cell phones on the road have been introduced in
state legislatures, and the time has come to push for their passage.
Regulation is needed because drivers using phones are seriously
impaired and because laws on negligent and reckless driving are

November 1999 alone. Early in November, two-year-old Morgan
Pena was killed by a driver distracted by his cell phone. Morgan’s
mother, Patti Pena, reports that the driver “ran a stop sign at 45
mph, broadsided my vehicle and killed Morgan as she sat in her car
seat.” A week later, corrections officer Shannon Smith, who was
guarding prisoners by the side of the road, was killed by a woman
distracted by a phone call (Besthoff). On Thanksgiving weekend

... their failed essays and exams. This has a significant impact on students and the University. A lot of time is taken to handle student complaints and remark assignments and exams. Secondly, your subject’s reputation amongst students and staff is poor. This limits student enrolments in your course and the willingness of program directors to use you in their courses. Consequently there is a limited amount of work available for you to do. This has implications for the University and the renewal of your contract. In the future I would like you to maintain a 65% mean for each class and give detailed and specific feedback on failed assignments. Proforma is available on the next page.

...Motivation Touchstone Dear Dianne, In the last activity, Creating Actionable Goals Related to Obtaining Your Graduate Degree, you watched a video which explained how when trying to achieve certain goals you can sometimes encounter a fog that can make you lose sight of the goals that you have set for yourself. Besides setting goals such as becoming self-sufficient, in regards to being able to take care of your family and opening your own non-profit, you have realized that there are certain steps that you must take to achieve these goals. In order to achieve the goals mentioned above, you realize that you must obtain the knowledge and skills that are necessary through higher learning. Gaining as much knowledge as you can has always been of great importance to you, even at an early age. Attending Northcentral University will help you to obtain such knowledge and skills. Even with your first class, Foundations for Graduate Study in Business, you learned some invaluable information through your assigned activities. At the start of your academic career, leading up to where you are now, you realize the part that research and developing your writing skills plays in becoming a successful student. However, in addition to your class on how to manage a business, you have also learned the importance of time management, critical thinking, keeping your thesis in mind, and through constructive feedback, setting and prioritizing your goals necessary to obtain your graduate degree.

More art forms in the neglected part of North-East India can be given some focus before China claims it to be theirs. * How can someone forget Bollywood or Indian Cinema on the whole? We are the pioneers in sending entries like Barfi, Jeans, etc. as nominations to Academy Awards (Oscar) for the Best Foreign Language Film and also enjoy meaningful movies like Tees Maar Khan and Student of the Year. Next time when we send our nomination, we should send the movie Teen Sau (300, dubbed in Hindi) and baffle the Hollywood on our smartness.

...Change Management Student Name Submitted Date Background For pioneers of associations, overseeing change is a vital key undertaking. In the most recent ten years, there have been various studies which all affirmed that between 60-80% of all change undertakings fall flat completely or incompletely: either the targets of the venture are not attained or the ventures can't be finished in time or on plan. Normally, a ton is in question: cash, individual notoriety, and the strength of the association. Kotter's Model of Organizational Change Today's associations are confronted with an expanding need to adjust to new substances that quite often bring about some authoritative change. The procedure of actualizing change in associations is frequently intricate and trying for generally administrators. To help chiefs effectively actualize transform, it is prescribed that they utilize some variant of a change model to expand their shots of fruitful execution. While there are numerous models for change administration, the vast majority of them start from the work of John Kotter's eight-stage change model. Particular steps in the model include: secure a feeling of direness, make the controlling coalition, create a dream and technique, impart the change vision, engage expansive based activity, produce transient wins, solidify additions to deliver more change, and grapple change in the association's society.

...S.E. Cupp is the author of "Losing Our Religion: The Liberal Media's Attack on Christianity," co-author of "Why You're Wrong About the Right," a columnist at the New York Daily News and a political commentator for Glenn Beck's The Blaze. The opinions expressed in this commentary are hers. Updated 4:09 PM ET, Tue February 3, 2015 (CNN)As the world now knows, the star of the Super Bowl was not Tom Brady or Russell Wilson. It wasn't Katy Perry or Missy Elliot. It was the Left Shark. His onstage dance during the halftime show has earned him global acclaim and, I must say, some unfair scrutiny for his seeming missteps. But neither the general public nor the media seem to appreciate just how much work goes into an interpretive, character-based dance such as the one Left Shark performed last night, and how easy it is, if you are committed to your craft, to lose yourself in the moment. Allow me to enlighten you. As a former ballerina, classically trained at the School of the Boston Ballet, I can assure you that Left Shark -- if he is the student of dance I suspect him to be -- trained for months to get inside the head of his character. Literally. Who is Left Shark? he probably asked himself. And why must he dance? What is his relationship to Right Shark? Are they lovers? Enemies? Do they share custody of a boy shark who's starting to ask questions about his parents' separation, for example? This is what true dancers -- or danseurs -- do. As Patrick Swayze's character said...

Both subjects have trained my logical and critical especially economic, it taught me critical thinking, problem solving skills, increase my sensitivity to figures. Those subjects required us to think the questions in different ways and need to draw a lot of figures and read the graph carefully especially in economic which I found that I am interested in it much that I paid most effort in this subject in order to get higher grade in different tests.
