• 1) Discussion forum 1: Challenging the process
Please review this clip (approximately 10 minutes) from the film, Remember the Titans. Coach Boone (Denzel Washington), the new head coach of a recently integrated high school football team in Virginia, challenges his team to get to know fellow teammates of another race. Until they do, they will undergo increasingly intensive practices. Coach Boone was determined to use the “ challenge the process” practice to bring about change among his followers.
In contrast to Coach Boone, for this post, scour the Internet and find an example of someone who “challenges the process,” but, according to Lencioni/Kouzes and Posner, uses the wrong approach. This can be based on a video, news article, magazine article, etc. Identify what this person is doing wrong and offer advice on how he or she can properly implement this leadership practice. Include a link to the web resource you are referencing in your post.

...DANIEL The bible says Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat , nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.(Da 1:8). He asked the steward to exempt him and his friends from the requirements. Please test yours servants ten days , Daniel requested. “Give us nothing but vegetable to eat and water to drink, then compare our appearance with that of the young men who ate the royal food. ( Courageous Faith pg 183). The boys request as intended to allow them to participate in their schooling without compromising their beliefs. And in the end they looked healthier and better nourished than any of the young men who ate the royal food.( Courageous Faith pg 184).They stood up for what they were taught and believe in.

...Kara Webster REL 212 5th March 2013 Unit 3 – Write Like Paul I Paul a follower of Christ Jesus. To Scott our respected pastor, to Clifford, Christian, and Alex our worthy ushers, and to the beloved people of the church. I pray grace, peace, and blessings over you from our Father and Jesus Christ. I remember all of you in my prayers. I appreciate your faith and admire your obedience. I pray that you are active in sharing your faith. I honor the love you have for one another, and I am in astonishment at the hearts you have refreshed. The Jewish Law has no importance to a person’s relationship with God. Jewish law states in order to get heaven you cannot eat pork. Christ Jesus will not care what you eat or when you eat it. Believe that Christ Jesus died on cross for you. Spread the word of his love and mercy. That is how you can call yourself Christian. What you eat is your personal preference. However eating the right thing will not get you nor keep the title Christian from you. So by all means eat pork hot dogs. Eat them for Sunday Supper or any supper. Pork has no correlation to being a Christian. The end of the world is near. Jesus is coming for judgment day. You should be anticipating, and constructing yourself for his return, things such as spreading his word and trying to renew hearts. Marriage and sex just get in the way of preparing for God’s judgment. I do not applaud to any use of......

Daniel Defoe

...Daniel Defoe I chose to write about and present the great writer Daniel Defoe. My interest for Defoe comes from his well-known novel, Robinson Crusoe which is a book read by most people and even has a TV-program inspired by the book. My curiosity for the background of the novel was the main reason why I chose to work with Defoe. Daniel Defoe, born Daniel Foe, was born in London somewhere between 1659 and 1661 and was the son of the butcher, James Foe. In his early years Defoe had a great desire to travel. In order to satisfy this desire he has to devote 35 years of his life to a business in socks. He travelled a lot and took part of many great adventures. But then his life turned, a difficult bankruptcy led him to start writing. At the same time he changed his name to Defoe. In 1697 he released An Essay upon Projects, a work that showed Defoe's practical orientation and his belief that Englishmen living conditions could be improved by such as better roads, health care and child care. Defoe became involved in political debate and got the opportunity to show his great talent as a journalist, satirist and poet. During the years 1704-13 Defoe worked as an editor of the political magazine The Review and practically continued the remaining of his life in journalism. When Defoe was around 60 years old he began to write the work that made him into a portal figure in the realist novel's history. In 1719-22 he published Robinson Crusoe, a fictional story inspired by reports of......

...As Jared’s saleCASE 1.1 Questions 1. Based on the brief conversation between Jerry Kline, Grace Gallo, and Paul Swenson, what kind of sales manager do you think each of them is? What do you think is the level of performance of the sales force each person heads? How do you think each of them will benefit from the sales management training seminar? Jerry Kline is the kind of manager that thinks the important thing is the money. He does not care about building customer relationships, just offer products at lower prices than competition and you will get sales. He does not care about performance, just making sales. He will not benefit at all by the attitude he is having, but if he is willing to learn, he will know that it is important to make a good sales performance and great long term customer relationships. Grace Gallo is the kind of manager that wants the things his way; if he is happy, their employees are happy. He likes to be the best and reach for his goal always. The training seminar can help him being more open on doing a better performance, but if he does not listen and be willing to learn he will not benefit from the seminar. Paul Swenson is the kind of manager that is willing to learn new things. His level of performance will increase because of what he will learn on the seminar. He will benefit because he learned that top management does not allow to match some of the discounts that competitors are offering, he will learn to sell on some basis other than......

...DANIEL- COMING KINGDOMS Then the king commanded Ashpenaz, his chief eunuch, to bring some of the people of Israel, both of the royal family and of the nobility, youths without blemish, handsome and skilful in all wisdom, endowed with knowledge, understanding learning, and competent to serve in the king's palace, and to teach them the letters and language of the Chaldeans. The king assigned them a daily portion of the rich food which the king ate, and of the wine which he drank. They were to be educated for three years, and at the end of that time they were to stand before the king. Among these were Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah of the tribe of Judah. And the chief of the eunuchs gave them names: Daniel he called Belteshazzar, Hananiah he called Shadrach, Mishael he called Meshach, and Azariah he called Abednego. (Daniel 1:3-7 RSV) Daniel, from the Hebrew word meaning God is my Judge, is one of the major prophets of the Old Testament (see Old Testament Fact File), and of the New Testament (see New Testament Fact File) since much of the prophecy given to him corresponds to that given to the apostle John in the Book of Revelation, and for our time now - Jesus Christ Himself specifically referred to events recorded in The Book of Daniel (Matthew 24:15) that would occur just prior to The Return Of Jesus Christ. Daniel was of royal lineage (Daniel 1:3), probably born in or near Jerusalem about 622 B.C. during the reign of Josiah (see Kings of Israel and Judah). In the...

...Paul as a Pastor After reading Annette Huzenga’s article on “Paul as a pastor in 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus” I began to think that Paul could not be a pastor in today’s society because of his strong personality and sense of a grand mission that he was truly dedicated to. As Huzenga said “Paul understood this about himself.” He never stayed long at a church because his mission was too large to hang around too long. He was preaching to the Non-Christians in the Roman Empire. He knew that his life was in danger with the Romans. Paul was not a pastor, he was an apostle; (295). An apostle is known for moving around from one place to another. The apostle sends information to their churches and anoint others like Timothy and Titus to oversee the churches after his work is done. Timothy and Titus were not pastors, but “overseers”, “elders” or “deacons” to focus on two main points of leadership. (295) Timothy and Titus were Pauls’ respected coworkers, so they had to conduct themselves the same way as him. As far as what the scholars say, Paul didn’t write the letters and that they were written after his death, is an individuals’ belief. (295) I personally believe he wrote because Jesus chose him to do such a difficult job and I don’t think that Jesus would not stay with him to complete his work. I can only read their comments and go on. Paul was definitely a teacher as pastorals called “a teacher” in (1 Tim 2:7; 2 Tim 1:11). The pastorals used language for instruction......

...Paul Paul was man who not only contributed tremendously to the Old Testament works, who also spearheaded the spread of the Gospel to Asia, Africa and India. Paul or formal know as Saul was Roman born citizen per Acts 22:28. Saul, respectfully, was born some time between 5 A.D. and 5 B.C. Little is know about Saul up bringing other than he was a “ Pharisee, son of Pharisee” Much of what Christians know of Saul, is her encounter with the angel of Jesus on the Damascus Road. Paul, or Saul at the time; was in route to persecute the Christians. It was then Saul converted to Christianity and became Paul. It was also during this encounter that Paul was blinded. He was let to the city of Damascus with assistance due to his blindness. After 3 days his sight was restored. From this point forward Paul would travel the known world spreading the Gospel from Europe to Asia. Paul would even be arrested and imprisoned for spreading the Gospel. It was assume that he was telling people to go against the law. But that was not his goal. Paul also wrote 13 to 14 books in the bible. The reason for there not being an exact number is because the book of Hebrew is still being debated as a book the Paul wrote. Paul is one of many figures of Christian history that help shape what we practice and teach today. How interesting it would be to have a discussion with such a culture and well rounded individual.

The function of an Expository text is to make comment on society in order to educate us on a world that we don’t have much experience with. The non-fiction text Killing Daniel written by Helen Garner, comments on contemporary Australian society by examining our refusal to open our eyes to brutal reality. Helen Garner exposes the horrific and brutal story of Daniel Valerio, whom in society permitted to be beaten to death at only the age of two by his own mothers ‘boyfriend’. Garner comments that as a result of societies apathy, and refusal to open our eyes to reality, we allow evil to prosper within the society we live in. Expository texts open our eyes to the harsh reality of life and encourage us to take action against societies apathy. In the text killing Daniel, Garner comments on apathy within contemporary Australian society by describing those who lack action and concern towards those considered as ‘outsiders.’ By the use of descriptive language Garner describes apathy within the professional’s walls of society.

...Daniel Bibonge Amsini Econ 412 December 18th, 2014 The US and its Current Account Deficit America's current account deficit has been fluctuating over the past 20 years. From 1991 it rose to a record high of about 6% of GDP in 2006 and it began to fall a year later to finally reach a level of 3% of GDP in 20091. Capital inflows finance the current account deficit. Economists are wondering if such large inflows are sustainable. According to economic theory, a current account deficit is not necessarily harmful as it stimulates a period of inward investment that can actually boost a country’s employment and investments. The current account deficit is still considered too large even at 3% and there is fear that it is caused by the recession. However economists believe that the US current account deficit may actually contribute to its development and attract foreign investors. The current account deficit is actually a good arsenal for the development of a country. For example, Japan invested a lot in the UK and this caused the emergence of new jobs in addition to the increased investment. The following paragraphs will enlighten more about how the current account of the US can affect its economy. 1 Feenstra, Robert C., and Alan M. Taylor. "National and International Account." International Macroeconomics. New York: Worth, 2012. 172-77. Print. A current account deficit (CAD) occurs when a country has an excess of one or more of the four factors (goods,......

...Paul, born Saul, was borne in Tarsus which was considered an epicenter of knowledge. This speaks of where Paul received his education and understanding of many things. Paul was a Roman citizen and although the scripture does not address where his citizenship came from it helped all throughout his ministry. Paul in Acts 18:3 is listed as a tentmaker and we can make the connection from 1 Thessalonians2:9 that this was done to offset his living expenses lessening his burden to the believers. Paul trained under Gamaliel in Acts 22:3-4 we see that he learned to be zealous for God and that he persecuted the followers of Jesus. The Bible then tells us of how Jesus interrupted Paul’s life. Paul chronology in the Bible only contains a few markers but without external evidence of Paul’s chronology they are still useless. The most important external evidence of Paul’s chronology is the Gallio Inscription which gives us an estimate of when Paul appeared before Gallio in Acts 18:12-17. After Paul’s conversion in Acts 9 Jesus sends him to Damascus to receive his sight back and receive instruction. Acts 9:20 says, immediately he began proclaiming Jesus in the synagogues: “He is the Son of God.” Then it seems that after his conversion he went to Jerusalem three years later, and then again eleven years later. The importance of Paul’s conversion in Galatians 1 signifies that the conversion is the reference point for all dating. Paul began in Damascus proclaiming in the synagogue, Acts......

...The Book of Daniel takes a special place within the books of the Bible. The book not only tells the story of Daniel, but it also contains a prophetic vision of the future revealed to Daniel in his dreams and visions. According to many commentators it also presents a broad outline of the world history revealed through the visions and dreams. The text of the Book of Daniel contains numerous references to rulers and kings. To understand who they were is crucial in order to interpret the Book of Daniel and evaluate its historical veracity. Whether the descriptions and characteristics of those rulers can be verified remains a debated issue in the biblical exegesis. As it follows from the text of the book, Daniel was a Jewish man who was taken captive in Jerusalem by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar. Following the Babylonian invasion, the entire Jewish nation was taken to Babylon and the Jerusalem temple was destroyed by the invaders. The much lamented captivity in Babylon is described in many parts of the Bible, for example in the famous Psalm 137 beginning with the words “By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion.” Daniel, along with some other Jewish young “men without physical defect, and handsome," was taken to the court of the king to study the Babylonian wisdom, language and literature (Daniel 1:4 New International Version). God gave Daniel and his companions “knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could......
