The pre-writing strategies I used when writing this essay was brainstorming and clustering. I find that clustering was more effective for me because it gives you more information to choose from when deciding on a topic. Brainstorming was satisfactory it got the job done. By using, the clustering strategy you make a cluster of all your thoughts and pick the one that you think would make your audience want to read more. If I had to do it over again I would not change anything, I would do everything the same. The purpose for writing this essay is to inform people “how life is as a Honeybaked Ham Sales Associate”. The audience for this essay is for jobseekers who are looking to become a Sales Associate and customer so they can be informed on what the person serving them go through on an everyday to serve them. The main point in my essay was about being a Honeybaked Ham Sales Associate and the responsibilities they have. After reading my essay, I want my audience to know the responsibilities and the steps to become a good sale associate. I want them to think about becoming a sales associate after reading my essay. They will learn the steps and process of being a sales associate and selling the product. When reviewing my peers essay I looked for the thesis statement and the main idea. I also looked for fragments and run-on sentences. After the peer review, I learned that everyone writes different and use different methods and words. After my peers read my essay, I learnt that I use “I” a lot in my sentences and I have many fragments in my essay. I think my essay could have been better and I could have had more information in it then I did. The way I revise my essay, I took my peers advice and changed some of my words and I corrected the fragments. The reason I made these revisions was that my peers and…...

...California Unemployment and Taxes California losing business and people because of many factors from high taxes to the high cost of living, but the state government thinks that raising taxes will help keep the states running. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, California, has one of the highest unemployment in the country at 9.4%. The nation’s unemployment rate is 7.5% one reason may be high taxes, bad regulations, unions, and the raise in energy costs up by 33%. Companies are moving out of California to places like Texas where the tax rate is lower and have fewer regulations. Some states like South Dakota, Texas, and Wyoming do not have corporate income tax. The big companies are not the only ones hurting. Small businesses are closing down every day. With the new heath care coming in businesses are not hiring because if they have 50 employee or more they will have to pay for their health care so they, either. They will let people go or make them part- time with fewer than 30 hours a week or have to pay a fine for each one. The costs for incorporating companies went up 800. dollars. Businesses are not the only ones moving people, are leaving too. Since the 2000 over 1.6 million people left California, for some of the same reasons, gas prices are one of the highest in the nation, the cost of living is one of the highest in the nation, some of the worst schools in the nation, political correctness, and the economy with poverty levels increasing by 30% since......

...Elsie Carrasquillo Crime and Society Instructor Scott Axton 2 May 2013 ABSTRACT Some states have yet to join those states that have put in effect the Three Strike Law. Even though many states have implemented the Three Strike Law it still has many setbacks. California has the strictest laws on the Three Strike Law. While experts thought this would be a good idea it causes issues like overcrowding in prisons and a much bigger budget plan. Proposition 36 was voted to reform the Three Strike Law to reduce sentences to those who have been convicted or misdemeanors instead of felonies. The Three Strike Law was first introduced in 1974, in the state of Texas. The state of Texas Three Strike Law, mandated for a criminal to automatically have to serve life in prison. Since then, there have been about 27 other states who have adopted the Three Strike Law. California was the third state to start implicating the law in 1994. Out of all the states who have adopted the law, California is the strictest state. California’s Three Strike Law has been around for about 19 years now. The main goal of this law was to reduce crime and deter offenders from repeating or committing more crime. The Three Strike Law in California was recently voted on Proposition 36, which reforms the Three Strike Law in the election of November 2012. The reason why the Three Strike Law was to be voted on was because, regardless of the crimes committed, whether serious or petty crimes, as long as it......

Medical Clinic

... A new medical clinic is opening up in your hometown and a mutual friend has recommended your services to the administrator of the clinic. You have received a letter asking you to provide information that would support their retaining your services rather than hiring employees for the same purposes. Assume that this letter may have gone out to other local firms as well. Working as a team, you will do the following two things: (a) After discussing and choosing a small business with your team, you will prepare a letter (in effect, an informal proposal) in response, offering your services to the clinic. (b) Follow up with an oral presentation before the administration of the clinic to discuss and further sell your services to them. On the date scheduled for the final presentation, each student will be responsible for evaluating one team, as assigned by the instructor, on their written and oral presentation. To help you prepare, a copy of the student team evaluation form has been provided. Additionally, students will evaluate the contribution of their fellow team members and themselves in developing the presentation. Evaluations will be taken into consideration in determining grades for the project. In preparing your written presentations, consider the following: • What business services will you choose to provide to the clinic? Billing, secretarial, computer, health, landscaping? • Who will present the letter to the clinic administrators?......

...1821 Mexico gained independence from Spain and "Alta California" became a Mexican province rather than a Spanish colony. A new era began in California as ranch life flourished and American trappers began to enter the territory. The Mexican government secularized the missions in 1834 and they were eventually abandoned. In June 1846 a party of settlers occupied Sonoma Plaza and proclaimed a Republic of California and raised the bear flag in rebellion. Known as the Bear Flag Revolt, this insurrection represented one of the first aggressive actions that divided California from Mexico. In 1848 gold was discovered at Sutter's Mill and dramatically altered the course of California's history as miners rushed into the area. On September 9, 1850, California became a state. The Gold Rush brought thousands of immigrants, both foreign and domestic, to California. This and later mass migrations, combined with the state's natural riches, assured Calfornia's success as it developed its diversified agriculture and industry, fisheries, forestry, and mining industries, aircraft plants and shipyards, tourism and recreation, the film industry, and the technological sector epitomized by Silicon Valley (highlighted in another National Register itinerary: Santa Clara County: California's Historic Silicon Valley). More than 90,000 people made their way to California in the two years following the first discovery and more than 300,000 by 1854 — or one of about every 90 people then living in the......

The California

...same holds true to the American gold rush in 1849 in California. How that gold rush shaped American economy and the west of the Americas in that time frame. The gold discovery that caught the eye of the world and brought attention to California happened on January 24, 1848 two week right before the peace signing negotiations between the Mexico and American governments (hittell, 1999) . In short the Mexican government gave up a huge discovery in the California’s lands that they had control over at that time. Neither the America nor the Mexican governments knew the magnitude of the discovery in California until the singing was over. The gold discovery that changed America happened in Sacramento Valley, most likely one of the most significant events to shape American history during the first half of the 19th century (The Gold Rush of 1849). As the news spread about the discovery of gold people by the thousand poured into San Francisco and the surrounding area by land and sea by the end of 1849 over 100,000 nonnatives California’s occupied the California claim lands. Before the 1849 discovery records showed that occupies was less than a 1000 before the 1848. (The Gold Rush of 1849). On January 24, 1848 the man who made the first discovery in California was James Wilson Marshall, a carpenter originally from New Jersey, found flakes of gold in the American River at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Coloma, California. (The Gold Rush of 1849) At the time of the......

Mayo Clinic

...Mayo Clinic Addie Long Columbia Southern University Mayo Clinic The magical Mayo Clinic has what every hospital is looking for; exceptional patient care, top of the industry research, and an impeccable budget. Mayo Clinic is considered a leader in cancer, heart disease, respiratory disorders, and urology in research as well as patient care. It is a rarity that a hospital is ranked at the top of the U.S. ratings in so many specialties. According to Kotler and Keller, “The clinic’s two interrelated core values trace back to its founders and are at the heart of the all the organization does: placing the patient’s interests above all others and practicing teamwork” (2012). Mayo Clinic is so good at customer service because the doctors and staff are all working towards a common goal, the ultimate best care for the patients, instead of worrying about their counter parts making more money and gaining more fame. One of the biggest differences between Mayo Clinic and other hospitals, private and not-for-profit, is that the patients state the “feeling” of accommodation and caring is felt the minute the patient begins speaking with anyone that is employed by the Clinic from volunteers, housekeeping, to the highest ranked physicians. The Mayo Clinic concentrates on teamwork between their doctors. All the doctors at the Mayo Clinic are salaried employees instead of getting paid for how many patients they treat, or how many exam referrals they create. This concept makes patient...

Identify the operations management problems that Dr. Barr is having at the clinic.

...On its own sunny path The article talks about how the state of California in USA is going about executing its plans of using alternative sources of energy to as large an extent as possible to meet the coastal state’s energy needs. As the governor of California in 1970s, Jerry Brown started propagating the option of solar power as a major source of energy for California, this idea was however unwelcome at that time & was rather shot down without any considerations to the merits it could offer. This however changed with time as people realized the importance of renewable resources of energy. California having a sunny climate for most of the year, along with a long coast line also helped in generating interest & confidence in the scheme of things planned for alternative source energy generation in California. The governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger set a goal in 2006 to reduce its greenhouse-gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, and this goal was recently transformed into a law by Mr. Brown who has become the governor of California once again. The law includes a controversial but crucial component: a cap-and-trade system A cap-and-trade system limits the emissions of dirty industries and puts a price on their remaining pollution, in theory, provide an incentive for reductions. As per the law, starting in 2013 the government will “cap” the amount of gases (such as carbon dioxide) that industry may emit, and gradually lower that cap. It will also issue permits to...

The firm’s dividend is expected to grow at a constant rate of 5% per year, and investors require a 15 % rate of return on the stock. Hint: consult pages 396-397 of your text book for correct formula. Please consult your syllabi for assignment grading criteria. 1. What is the stock’s value? In order to determine the stock’s value. I used the formula in the text E(P0)= D0 x [1 + E(g)] / R(Re) – E(g). In which D0 represents the most recent dividend, which has already been paid = $, E(g) represents the expected growth rate in dividends in the future=5%, and R(Re) represents the expected rate of return on the stock=15%. Therefore the formula is as follows: E(P0)= $2.00 x [1 + .05] / .15 - .05= E(P0)=$2.00 x 1.05 / .10= E(P0)= $2.10 / .10= $21.00 The stock’s value is $21.00 2. Suppose the riskiness of the stock decreases, which causes the required rate of return to fall to 13%. Under these conditions, what is the stock’s value? The formula used above would again be used in this situation, however the R(Re) which represents the expected rate of return on the stock now=13%. Therefore the formula is now as follows: E(P0)= $2.00 x [1 + .05] / .13 - .05= E(P0)=$2.00 x 1.05 / .08 E(P0)= $2.10 / .08= $26.25 The stock’s value is $26.25 3....
