Dear Student, Have you ever been unprepared for a big test? From personal experience I can tell you that it is not something you want to experience yourself. I have encountered this a few times throughout school. I can tell you a few things I was able to do to prepare, the reasons I did not get to prepare as much as I wanted, taking the test, and things that happened after I completed the test. Hopefully you will learn from my mistakes. Some of the things I was able to do to prepare was go over it in class, make a foldable, and look over my notes right before I took the test. Just by going over the material in class, I was not fully paying attention. When I made my foldable, I copied off of someone’s so I could finish mine. Right before the test I just glanced over my notes. Those three preparation techniques are not recommended. The reasons I did not get to prepare as well as I wanted were because I was out of school with the flu. Therefore one of my friends William let me barrow his foldable, so I just copied it. While taking the test, I soon found out how unprepared I really was. Another thing that I found out was study only the night before a test isn’t a good idea. The reason for that is that you will not remember everything you tried to cram in your brain the night before. Whenever I got my test I completely froze up and couldn’t remember a thing on it. I would say I learned the hard way. After taking that test, I knew right when I turned it in that I was going to fail it. I dreaded getting the test back. When my teacher finally gave me my test back the next week, sure enough, I bombed it. Then whenever my parents found out, I got in trouble because I got a bad grade on my test. There was no excuse for that. The outcome of taking that test was just awful. I hope that you can take this advice and never do the things that I did. From my experience, it was a terrible idea on my behalf. Those were the things I did to prepare, the reasons I did not do well, and the things that happened after I completed the test. I really hope this letter helps any student who is reading it.
Sincerely,
David Coccoli

...What If World Wide Web Never Exists? World Wide Web is become the important thing nowadays. Have you ever think about one day that we do not have the World Wide Web? It is really hard for us to think about that. However just pretend that World Wide Web does not exist, how the world will change and how our lives will be different. Firstly, if World Wide Web does not exist, we won’t have the social media. We can say that World Wide Web gave birth to social media. We can connect to people easily especially when we are not living close to each other. We cannot keep in touch or talk to people when they go to somewhere else. If we want to tell those people what is going on or to tell them about the important things happen, the only way is that writing letters and wait until it sends to those people. It really takes a lot of time and does not convenient. Secondly, without World Wide Web, we do not know how to buy things online. Whenever we want to buy something, we have to find the store and go to that store so that we can buy the things we want. It really takes time for us to do that. We cannot buy things we want from another country because it is really hard to do it without World Wide Web. Moreover, the companies cannot develop their business to all over the world easily without Internet and World Wide Web. They have to take time and go around the world to present the companies.

This is the guy who said, ‘this is not me, this is yesterday’s breakfast. And when this is gone doesn’t mean I am gone, it means that you need to find other ways to communicate with me.’” And I actually just got an email yesterday from a woman who said, “Oh! I’ve been dreaming about Bucky Fuller and I actually saw him in the mall the other day.” And I am like, “Whoa! This is pretty interesting she’s in Australia.” And I think that his influence is like everywhere. [0:02:27] What I decided was that I was going to do -- that he had conducted a 56 year experiment to determine and document what one individual could achieve that could not be accomplished by any religion, government, organization of any kind. So it’s basically what one man can do and he documented it and I said, “Well, when somebody does an experiment, you don’t just archive it away. You actually examine it.” So that’s what I’d spent the last 30 years doing literally. And doing what he told us to do, which is what......

Exercise 10-2 Ojt

...with some classroom training so that we can start with information about the company, what their new job will be like and go over the safety rules so that we can make sure everyone is in a safe environment. I feel that it is very important that an employee knows what they is sell and who they are working for because one of the greatest selling tool you will have is a love for what you are selling and the belief that your company is the best. I can tell you a love for what you are doing will help you do it every day and if you believe in what you are selling you can make others belief it and then they will by it and on the smallest level just having the confidence can make you stand out verses others. This first part of the training will be the orientation. After going over the products a little, the company, and safety rules we will start to get the trainees ready to learn and the first thing will be to get them their uniform and get changed. After they have changed I feel it is important to talk to the trainee get to know them and each other, find out what they do, things that they like and things that they do not like and try to add things in about how that relates to their new job and why it is important; this can help get the new trainees interested and ready to learn which is important because you cannot force anyone to learn they must be ready and willing to. This should take the first part of day one. Now of the second half of the day we will do some more classroom......

How Satan Stops Prayers

...to share with you from a testimony of someone who was saved, someone who had been serving the devil.  And when that man gave his testimony, it so challenged me, I did not want to believe it.  I had to go ten days before the Lord in fasting, asking Him, "Lord, is this true?" And it was at that time the Lord began to teach me what happens in the spiritual realm when we pray.  This man was born after his parents dedicated themselves to lucifer.  When he was still in the womb, they made so many rituals dedicating him to serve lucifer.  When he was four years old, he began to exercise his spiritual power.  And his parents began fearing him.  When he was six years, his father surrendered him to the witches to go and be trained.  And by ten years, he was doing great things in the kingdom of the devil.  He was feared by the normal witches.  He was still a young boy, but he was so terrible in the things he did.  He grew up to be a young man in his twenties with so much bloodshed on his hands.  Killed at will.  He had the ability to go out of his body through transcendental meditation.  And he could levitate.  Sometimes his body would lift off the ground and stay in the air.  And sometimes he could go into a trance, and come out of his body; his body would remain behind, and he would go out into the world, this is called astro-travelling.  And this guy was used by satan to destroy so many churches, to break down so many churches and to destroy so many pastors.  One day, he was......

Choir Trips

...send both our band and choir each year, so our choir had a chance to go on a trip every other year. My sophomore year we went to Orlando Florida, and my senior year we went to New York City. While both trips were fun, the Florida trip was more focused on the competition and the New York trip was more sightseeing. To raise money for the trips, we had to do many fundraisers. These fundraisers included That’s my Pan, where you can choose what kind of pan you want, the color of the lid and also the design and saying on the lid. There is also personalized utensils you can get and cutting boards. We also sold pizzas, candy, chocolate, and cookie dough. We also had a car wash to raise money. On the Florida trip it was nice to have more freedom to go where we wanted to go. During that week, we stayed at one of the hotels on Disney world grounds so we were able to get up when we wanted and take a bus to which resort we wanted to go explore. During the Florida trip, we spent most of our time at the resorts but we slept in when we could. When we went to each of the resorts, to be safe we had to be in a group of three or four people. If something happened at any of the resorts during the whole week, there were a couple chaperones assigned to be at each resort. When we were in Florida, I loved having the warm weather and I was happy that we were able to wear shorts and tank tops. On the new York trip some exciting things were being able to site see many places like the statue of......

The Monthly Cash Flow Plan

So I just start to go through these, just fill in the steps. It is very easy to just go through this. Some of this stuff is kind of, it maybe too… I don’t know you dig a little bit too into it. You know, I kind of like to, let’s see. What is this word I’m kind of looking for? I encompass everything into one, more or less-- I do not break it down quite this much. I mean, you can, if you can. The more you can break it down, the better off you are, but, to break it down into, like even for example, I’ll start giving you examples as we go through, like transportation. It says gas and oil. Yes! It is easy for you to break down what you should be spending in gas, but, how do you break down like, tires? I mean, it is just a whole different thing you can do, so for me, I would just put it in a budget as far as gas, oil changes, tires-- all that stuff into one thing. And then there is this one here has license and taxes, **car’s** (unsure) replacement—these kind of things, so if you would just kind of split it that way to make it one big expense instead of like breaking it down individually-- but it is just me. I kind of like I said, I kind of have a bigger budget just to cover the little things like that, just to kind of cover. You know, we have some money that gets put away every week from our paycheck into an account that’s......

Letting Go

...Letting Go of a Friendship Learn the signs it may be time to end a long-time companionship How do you know when a friendship is on its last legs? If a pal has done something unforgivable or hurtful, or is simply a constant nuisance, the sanity-saving thing to do may be to cut her off, says Florence Isaacs, author of Toxic Friends, True Friends. That's what Kathryn Hoots, 42, did. She always thought her friends would be happy for her when she got married and started a family. But when one of them didn't seem to be, it threw Kathryn for a loop. "This one friend liked going out and having fun when we were both single, but as soon as I got married and had a child, she seemed to lose interest," says Kathryn, who has a 2-year-old and is currently expecting twins. During the course of their 13-year friendship, the woman always steered conversations to her own problems, never taking much interest in Kathryn's, especially after she became a mom. "She never wanted to meet my son and she even told me that I wasn't the maternal type," says Kathryn, who lives in New York City. That was the turning point. Kathryn had put up with her friend's self-absorbed behavior for years, but the comment made her wonder why. By the time the friend called to apologize for the offensive remark, Kathryn had already begun to reassess their relationship. "She just didn't seem able to be happy for me, and that's not a real friend," says Kathryn. "I couldn't put any more time or effort in after that." The......

Strange in Soc

...Things that I Find Strange in the Society Society is the place we live in together with the people we deal with. Only as a part of society can we can study, communicate, obtain experiences and learn to overcome difficulties. As our society became wider, we have acquire the things or habits that people have contributed to the society. Although everyone is unique, society shapes the lives of its people. While living in a society, there are a lot of things we can see in the action of people that seems natural but, in fact, isn’t. Among the things that I find strange that is happening in our society is about education for success. A lot of parents would say to their children to go to school and study hard to get good grades because that will be their way to find a safe and secure job and be successful. Parents want the children to go to school to properly educate them. They also say that through education, we could earn desirable amount of money and make our lives easier. To be successful, one must go to school and educate. That’s what they are trying to make us believe. If the purpose of going to school is to educate ourselves, then why can’t we just go to library or read anything that will educate us for success? Not all people become successful because of education. There are a lot of people who were able to achieve success in their own way other than going to school. Bill Gates, a college drop-out, is now known as a successful man not because he go to school, but because...

Worldview Essay: Refitting the Pieces

...our kids and me. The first guy I was married to he was unkind man. After we got married he would beat and cheat on me. I have find that all of the people I have studied in this course where all kind of one sided. Where I eye don’t like to say any of the other worldviews are wrong even if some of it I may or may not understand. The education and life decisions I have are 2 years tech school for health care, and all grades k-12. My life decisions have never always been good but they have never been ones that would get me killed or put in jail, like the time when I was 4 and I took some gum from the store after my dad told me no then he whipped me all the way home and back to the store . Ultimate reality is something I have always liked looking into watching things about ghosts and other things that go bump in the night. Now you must know that when I say ultimate reality yes, god can be put into those terms for the fact that no one has really ever seen him. But that’s not what I mean for I know god is here and everywhere around, and he is good, b/c how would we all be here if he wasn’t. What I mean by this is ghosts and demons. Yes god is good but I believe that all souls not our bodies for they died and go back in to the ground, but our souls or placed in these bodies for god to see us act out what’s in our souls. And when the body dies if you were bad or you just don’t know your dead yet that you don’t go to hell...

Personal Awareness

...lives as a Christians we face many tasks that may seem impossible to complete, and many times the task that is at hand is as simple as obeying God’s Will. God has blessed each and everyone of us with an ability or abilities of some sort. These are the things that we may find natural that no one else ever could. They can include singing, the playing of instruments, or even the ability to speak in a public setting. While we are all blessed with certain abilities that anyone could ultimately master, we are also blessed with certain Spiritual Gifts that are unique to each and every Christian. Everyone of us receive some sort of gift upon accepting Christ as our Lord and Savior, and we all have at least one. However it is up to us to fully embrace those gifts and learn how we are to use them. In order to do this we must establish a firm prayer connection to God. This is our means of communication to Him. While confirmation from the world around us sometimes seems necessary, it really is not. The only confirmation that is really needed is the one that no man can give us. However, God has given us a means to seek confirmation from those that are around us. One of the most popular and accurate means today is an MBTI type assessment. This assessment is fairly accurate if you answer the questions truthfully. God has a plan for our lives. It is fully up to us to accept them and to know what it is that we have to do. We are about to embark......

Do you remember when he came in? J: I do. G: Ok. So I have known him since I was a kid, he’s almost like an uncle to me. Now he said, basically this is a done deal. Now his shareholders, they don’t get together until 2 weeks after the fourth quarter. But that’s not really a problem because I have talked to him, and worked everything out and done everything that he wanted me to do. J: does he have to get the shareholders to approve the deal? G: Well yeah of course. J: Well how is he going to do that if the quarter ends, he can’t legitimately sign the deal before he gets shareholder approval? G: Ok, well technically I know what you’re saying, but I’m telling you I know this guy. He’s like, like at thanksgiving and when I was growing up we would have picnics together, and he’s given me the OK. He says he’s got these shareholders on his side, and then he’ll have this meeting that’s kind of a technical problem but other than that, he said he will do it so it’s really not a problem. J: So if he does that though, are we authorized to go ahead and make this deal. Because obviously there is a lot of pressure in our department right now.

I’m hoping to have given you a bit more than that by the time we’re finished. But that’s not really how it is, because we’re not going to stop after today.

It doesn’t take just one type of person to create big change, it takes a bunch of people collaborating, from scientists and engineers to artists, entrepreneurs, lawyers, and educators. That’s who we are as a species, far greater as a whole than the sum of our parts, and that’s part of our grand quest for understanding in a vast, incredible universe....
