The Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills, an American football team, were founded in 1960 when Ralph Wilson Jr. bought the Buffalo Niagras and renamed the team after the famous Wild West circus performer “Buffalo Bill.” They then joined the American Football League, or AFL, which was thought to be inferior to the National Football League, or NFL. Since that time the Buffalo Bills have become a very important part of the economy in Buffalo. Headquartered in Buffalo, it is one of the few prospering businesses in Buffalo which ranked in as the no. 8 most miserable city in the United States, according to Forbes magazine. To the people of Buffalo, the Bills represent much more than an economic impact, but have become the only thing that these miserable people have to look forward to every year. Unfortunately for them, the bills have also been ranked by the NFL network as one of the top 10 “snake bitten” franchises and experienced an incredible amount of bad luck and struggle throughout their history.
The Bills got off to a slow start in their inaugural season finishing with a below .500 record and getting the less than spectacular distinction of being the only NFL team to lose to a Canadian Football team when they lost to the Hamilton Tiger Cats. In an attempt to change their fortunes they acquired San-Diego’s star quarterback, Jack Kemp, off waivers, and they drafted Syracuse Stand out and Heisman winner Ernie Davis. However, the bad luck of the bills continued when Davis opted out of the AFL and went on to be drafted by the Cleveland Browns; shortly after this he died of leukemia. Shortly after this the bills acquired some great offensive talent and had a very formidable roster, and with jack kemp at the helm the bills won the AFL championship in 1964 and 1965. While this may sound like a great accomplishment, as previously stated…...

..., though the internet has developed into various other languages, English still remains as the core language for most internet users. Most of the information and websites are available in English only and it becomes very difficult to translate every appropriate page into the language of the concerned country. With the growth of the internet into education and E-commerce, English language, by default, is bound to grow. Summing it up, it is highly essential to know the language for communication. In general, the most popular language is English and in this computer age, English is the only language that anyone can understand. Unless we have the fluency in English language, it would not be possible to work with the computer. If we do not know English, then we would be in need of a translator to do the job. In spite of these stated importance of the English language, we then, as future educators must think for ways wherein we could teach our students better. Considering the fact that the English subject is only given 60-minute allotment for instruction 5 times a week, with this time limit, it is very impossible for the slow learners to cope with instructions. So to say, we are necessitated to conduct a study in order to increase the performance level of the first year students, particularly the slow learners and non-readers. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM Although English language is taught in the Philippine schools, from the elementary level, the majority of the students are...

...BROKEN Fellow toastmasters and guests, good evening! Please pass this egg around then try to feel that this egg is you…held by another persons’ hand. Be careful please, it’s the only visual aid I have tonight. What do you feel? Tonight as we are gathered together like sheep upon a smooth shelter, please allow this humble speaker to illustrate the brokenness that tainted our hearts and minds with fear, discontentment and loneliness. The brokenness that gives me hesitation with my speech…the brokenness that makes you lose your interest… The brokenness that gives us all rejections… I am not to discuss on how to bring them back into pieces. But at least to inspire us to live a life of meaning despite the brokenness of the world… We were at first created whole and intact. A young fetus in the mother’s womb was at first innocent and unbroken. Not until, the very first pain from bumping and shaking inflicted its innocence. It started to break him forever. The very day he was deprived of the umbilical chord, which develops him, his brokenness grows on. That very day, he cried out for help. The weather was peculiar…the sounds were different…the air in his nostrils was his first time. And from that day onwards, his innocence was slowly replaced by experiences. These experiences are breaking him everyday of his life. Everyone in the world is broken. All of us in this room are broken. Every time we are...

...Where Did the Time Go There never seems to be enough hours in the day. Where does all the time go? The alarm goes off at 4:45 a.m., I normally hit the snooze so that I can get fifteen more minutes of sleep. I get up; feed the dogs, than head for the shower. While getting ready for work, I’m keeping an eye on the time, knowing that if I don’t leave by 5:45 a.m. I will be stuck in base traffic and will be late for work. On my ride into work, I’m constantly thinking of all the things I need to juggle hoping to fit everything into my busy schedule. Since starting college this semester, the evenings consist of going to class and homework. My husband will call me and ask what my plans are for after work and it’s always, cook dinner, feed the dogs and homework. If I’m lucky, I’ll finish with my classwork and be able to sit and relax for about thirty minutes. Then it’s time to put the dogs out and off to bed. I feel like I am consistently juggling my time between work, school, dogs and oh yeah, my husband. Then there is always trying to find time to complete household chores. Most of these have to happen over the weekend. Laundry, dusting and cleaning the floors are only a few of the indoor items needing to be done. Then there are dogs that need to be bathed and poop that needs to be scooped. When I was getting ready to go back to college, my husband kept saying, “I can’t wait to see how you plan to keep doing all the things you do and go to school...

...Time passes by in the blink of an eye and when it passes by it changes everything. Although some people say that haven’t changes and that I am still the same person that I was five years ago, but I believe that I have changed and became a new person, however, with some of the same values. Looking back at myself five years ago, I realize that there are some things about myself that are still the same, but at the same time I recognize the fact that I’ve changed and became a different person. I believe in change; I believe in changing and becoming a better person. As a result, I like to think that my personality has changed and that I became a better and a more mature person. Five years ago, when I was 13 years old, I wasn’t a very independent or a mature person, whoever, looking at the current me, I see a beautiful, mature and independent young women. I was a very nondependent girl that would always ask her mother to do her laundry, or simply prepare her food. However, now I am a person that can make my own food, do my own laundry and manage my own daily life. I am now an independent young lady; I am more mature, not only physically but also emotionally and spiritually. However, although I believe in change, I still look at myself and see some of that 13 years old girl. I see the innocence, the purity and the young spirit. I look in the mirror and I see a young lady that was able to keep the same innocence that she had five years ago, but it’s not only me that see......

I also encode the 201 file of the employees through HRIS of the National Bookstore. It’s time consuming because of some not complete details but when the time goes by, I find it easy and do it fast as much as I can so that my co-intern there always ask me why I work cool.

...Time. Many people use their time differently, Some use there time inventing, inspiring. There is one thing that everyone can agree on is time is not something to waste. Steve Jobs once said, “Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone ease’s life. Don't be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” .this quote explains time well because you don’t want to let other peoples options get in the way of your goal and cause someone to waste their time. One will never know when their time will be up, Good time management for a student requires three points. One step to make time management effective is to develop a time strategy. The time strategy should be based on a short list of time priorities. This short list forms the basis for a student's time planning for every week of the year. The dictionary definition of the word time is “the system of those sequential relations that any event has to any other, as past, present, or future; indefinite and continuous duration regarded as that in which events succeed one another.” My own personal definition of time is the opportunity you are give to succeed of or fail. The first of the three points that a student should keep in his or her mind is not taking on more than he or she can handle. If a student has scheduled to many classes to take in one...

First if they don’t structure their time for homework & projects, they may not able to complete them on time. Second is the cramming for examination which is the another common trait of disorganized or undisciplined college students that rather than setting aside time each evening for study, poor time managers try to absorb everything in a few late hours the day before the test. * Trying to manage all the demands of working and going to school is not an easy task, but it is possible.

...The Beginning of TIME: How Britton Hadden and Henry R. Luce Changed the Magazine Industry In 1923 Henry R. Luce and Briton Hadden released a most original an unique piece of work; Time magazine. Time magazine became and remained completely different from its predecessors and competitors. It changed the way people became informed, and changed the entire magazine industry. Journalists before the 1920's had to deal with the blatant attack on freedom of speech and press led on by president Woodrow Wilson's administration, and it left them too afraid or unwilling to speak their minds. As a result rarely was the news delivered noteworthy, and too many Americans were left generally uniformed. Once the press finally did recover from the suppressive Wilson administration, the economy simultaneously experienced a great advance. With Warren G. Harding, a former journalist, as president now and the oppressive Wilson out of the picture it was an ideal time for the press to experiment (Daly 178-190). Luce and Hadden met each other when they were just young boys attending Hotchkiss boarding school in Connecticut. Though their relationship was incredibly competitive from the very beginning and their conflicting attitudes led them to work together with an effective energy. Neither of them came from much money, but that didn't matter so much as they made friends that had plenty. Endowed with the great ability of drive and dedication. Enthusiastic and confident in their ideas...

...Literal Analysis Essay Time, a subject as universal and engaging as life itself. In a sense, without time the world would be a vastly different place. The way in which we perceive our lives based on this unifying concept plays a strong role in how we go about our days, months, and even years. The idea of time not only plays a factor in our everyday lives and productivity, but it can also take shape in our literature, media, and an overall means of expressing ourselves. Time is what helps organize us and our hectic schedules, the fortifying force that keeps our lives from falling into chaos. The progression of age is seen as a bi­product of time, a change in the senses. In a way, the idea of time is as crucial to us as breathing. The imagery and emotion shown in Ernest Hemingway's short story “A Clean, Well­Lighted Place” address the importance of time in a powerful and depressing manner through the characters of a drunk old man, two waiters, and the setting of a night cafe. The idea of the vastness of time can be intricately depicted in his detailed imagery, from the way the old man remains in a sense of aged loneliness while retaining his sense of self, as well as the sympathetic relation the older waiter holds towards the drunk man. As crucial, and sometimes fearing, as time is in the natural aging cycle of life, it can also be a gatekeeper of youth and social engagement, as depicted in the younger waiter. In the on going...

...HOW TO SPEND YOUR 168 HOURS A WEEK WISELY Time or the lack of time is a major problem for many college students. The week won't expand to 200 hours, so it's up to you to make your activities fit the time you have. Follow these directions and use the calendar on the other side to analyze your time use and find some solutions. About 100 of the 168 hours are taken up with sleeping, eating, personal care, travel, chores, religious activities, and some leisure time.            TOTAL THE HOURS ALLOWED FOR CLASS, STUDY, WORK, AND OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES. EXAMINE YOUR SCHEDULE AS IT IS           FIRST, FILL IN MAJOR COMMITMENTS AND PERSONAL TIME: Pencil in all your class times, work hours, and other regular commitments such as meetings and practices. Allow for travel times. Allow time to shower, eat meals, do laundry, shop for groceries, etc. REMEMBER TO ALLOW ENOUGH TIME TO SLEEP! If you consistently try to get by on less then 7 hours of sleep per day, you may risk your physical health and undermine everything else. It's true-- you should allow about two hours of study time for every hour you spend in class. A 5-credit math or science class requires ten hours a week to read, study, and do homework problems. Schedule study and review times as soon after classes as possible. Allow study time every day for difficult subjects. Study specific subjects at specific times- math at 2 on Sunday. Try to study at the times of day that are best for you. If you are at your...

...Name | Han Jet | ID | 150103 | E-Mail | han.jet@pine.edu.my | Lecturer | Mrs.Stephy | List of Articles | 3 | R emote workers appear to finally be getting some respect from their in-office peers, new research finds. While there has long been a perception that employees who work from home don't work as hard as those in an office, perceptions are shifting, according to a study from Dell and Intel. More than half of employees globally now believe that their peers who work from home are just as productive, or more productive, than those in the office. Remote employees also feel like they get more done from the comfort of their own home. Of those who spend any time working from home, half believe they are more productive there than in the office, while 36 percent think they are equally as productive in both locations. Just 14 percent of those surveyed believe they get less done when working from home. Bob O'Donnell, founder and chief analyst at TECHnalysis Research, told the study's authors that many employees today have better equipment and faster Internet connections in their homes than they do in their place of work. "So, we're seeing experiments where more people are working at home more often than they had before," O’Donnell said in the research. At-home employees cite a number of benefits to working outside the office. The study revealed that 30 percent sleep more, 40 percent drive less and 46 percent feel less stressed. [10 Big Companies That Will Let You...

...irst some questions: What is time? In a physical sense? In psychological terms? What does time do? How does it work? Can it be transcended? Time in many ways is like space. In physics, time and space are woven together, like a fabric upon which all matter lies. At the limits, near the speed of light, movement in time is yoked to movement in space. As spatial speed increases, temporal speed slows. Recent quantum physics, in the area of non-local phenomena, suggests that both time and space are not as they appear on our scale of existence. It appears that particles, separated in both space and time, interact, in a simultaneous manner. Indeed, in one of the strangest experimental effects, the future may causally impact the past (the implications of that one will make your head spin). Distant particles are somehow connected, are somehow not distant. It is as if the space and time between did not really exist, nor the proposed distinction. Rather, these physicists (cf. Yakir Aharonov, Jeff Tollakson, and Menas Kafatos) suggest that perhaps there is an underlying singularity or unity to matter, across both time and space. Many spiritual traditions, philosophies, songs, and so on have suggested similar ideas: "We are one, heartache to heartache....love is a battlefield" Pat Benatar. Beyond funny ‘80's rocker references, such notions are at the heart of spiritual practices, across the various world traditions, even mainstream Christianity which proposes that God exists outside...

...Time Time once gone is gone forever. You do not acknowledge how important time is until you use it all up. You have so much more control over your time, than you will ever realize. There is no specific word that can describe what time means. Many people see it from different perspectives and have their own meaning about what time means to them. Time revolves around our daily lives and our brain simply cannot catch the number of things that changes every second. Everyone can tell the time, but not everyone can be in control of it. Beauty of time. An example of a point of view from an incredibly smart and amazing person really got to me and got me thinking. He had so many things to say that made people stop and think, unfortunately he ended his 20-year career recently. Kobe Bryant. Even though you might not be interested in basketball and anything related to it but this person has described one perspective of time better than anybody will ever be able to. In one of the interviews before his last game, he said, “If I had the power to turn back time, I would never use it,” then he adds. “Now that I think about it, because now every moment that you go through means absolutely nothing, because you could always go back and do it again. It loses its flavor. It loses its beauty.” It’s one perspective to see what time can mean in someone’s life. It doesn’t need to represent something specific but everybody needs to understand how valuable and precious time can be, no matter...
