I probably lock eyes with a few hundred people every day. Some familiar, some new, some forgotten five seconds afterward. It seems, and for the most part it is, subconscious. I recognize someone and their being and their existence, and then I move on. Maybe smile a bit if the contact is held for a second too long, just to keep things from getting awkward. It happens every day. And I think nothing of it. His eyes, however, are different. Thinking nothing of them couldn’t be further from the truth. Every time I’m around him he gives me the same look – whether it’s given with the intention to remind me that he loves me or to playfully tell me I’m an idiot, it doesn’t matter. Any mood he’s in or thought he’s having is written clearly all over them.
I proudly admit to being one of the few couples who didn’t let a few states (ten, to be exact) put an end to an otherwise perfect relationship. I was lucky enough to have had the honor and the privilege of knowing him throughout high school, purely through friendship until senior year. We said our goodbyes, moved into our respective schools, made our own friends and smoothly transitioned into a new, exciting part of our lives - one without having each other just down the road. We had made it through one year together, and I guess you could say we decided to switch it up a bit for year number two. I hadn’t locked eyes with him in exactly fifty-one days. And quite frankly, I had never felt more like a cliché teenage girl in my life. He was 1,080 miles away, but there was hardly a time when he wasn’t in the back of my mind. Memories of him and of his smile were triggered by witty comments I knew he’d appreciate or restaurants I’d be dying for him to try. And today, they would no longer only be memories. I can’t explain how it feels to be so connected to someone that…...

Operations Extended Response

...Operations Extended Response How does an understanding of the influences on operations contribute to business success? The success of every business depends on adapting itself to the environment within which it functions. A thorough understanding of the operational influences on a business is critical to ensuring the business is flexible, and can adapt to changing market circumstances. Without continually updated knowledge of the operational influences which consists of globalisation, technology, legal regulation, government policies, environmental sustainability, quality expectations and cost-based competition, the success of the business is questionable. The success of a business can be measured through indicators such as strategic goals, market share, profitability, growth, efficiency, quality of output, business competitiveness/image, meeting the changing needs of customers and their contribution to the wellbeing of society. Globalisation An understanding of globalisation gives a business a direction for growth, and enables the business to identify the areas for growth and expansion of their activities. For example Google is an effective innovator that develops and distributes high quality, distinctive ideas that are transformed into products that are sold globally. They have utilised globalisation so as to mass produce innovative products at low cost. This has been essential to Google’s position as a market leader. The knowledge to harness globalisation...

Extended Definition of Comedy

...Extended Definition of Comedy. Define “comedy”. When browsing the Internet for the definition of comedy, they all have the quote: “a light and humorous drama with a happy ending.” Comedy is full of opposites and contradictions. Something is funny when it’s both expected and unexpected. Something is funny when it’s familiar and unfamiliar. There are various types of comedy including irony, sarcasm, parody, spoof and many more. Irony is where the opposite of what is expected happens or where someone says the opposite of what they mean, while sarcasm is where an insult or quick remark is fired at someone with the intention of causing injury. Parody is when someone deliberately mimics the style of another for comic effect or ridicule. Spoof is somewhat like parody, except it’s lighter and has a gentle imitation. It is not necessarily intended to make fun of the thing being spoofed but the comedy happens in the allowance of the piece being spoofed. Comedy is funny when the act is unexpected. For example, a woman buys a white coat and approaches a wet black bench. "Look out!" yells a zoo keeper. " Oh, thanks," says the woman, "I almost sat on that." Then an escaped lion leaps in from the side and bashes her. This is comedy because just like the woman, the audience did not know that a lion would appear and bash her, even though the zoo keeper warns her to watch out. We all though the same the the woman thought, that the zoo keeper was warning her about the wet bench. This......

An Essay on Essays

...Essays are generally scholarly pieces of writing written from an author's personal point of view, but the definition is vague, overlapping with those of an article, a pamphlet and a short story. Essays can consist of a number of elements, including: literary criticism, political manifestos, learned arguments, observations of daily life, recollections, and reflections of the author. Almost all modern essays are written in prose, but works in verse have been dubbed essays (e.g. Alexander Pope's An Essay on Criticism and An Essay on Man). While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population are counterexamples. In some countries (e.g., the United States and Canada), essays have become a major part of formal education. Secondary students are taught structured essay formats to improve their writing skills, and admission essays are often used by universities in selecting applicants and, in the humanities and social sciences, as a way of assessing the performance of students during final exams. The concept of an "essay" has been extended to other mediums beyond writing. A film essay is a movie that often incorporates documentary film making styles and which focuses more on the evolution of a theme or an idea. A photographic essay is an attempt to cover a topic with a linked series of photographs; it may or may not have an accompanying text or......

One of the leading changes in entertainment today is video games. There are now many forms to video games, virtual reality, consoles, PC gaming, simulators, and sports that are now controlled by body in the consumers very own living room. Video games have easily rivaled the video industry and also contribute to movie interests.

What brings this very large difference between the two is the internet. Once the Internet was introduced to the gaming consoles at large, consumers were given opportunity to extend content.

Extended Family

...My Extended Families Desiree Feliuai National University I am from a very small core family, which consists of only my parents and me. My parents can’t conceive so they adopted me. I have a massive extended family. I am from a Samoan society. Wikipedia defines a Samoan extended family as, “The ʻaiga is the family unit of Samoan society and differs from the Western sense in that it consists of more than just a mother, father and children. The Samoan family, also referred to as an 'extended family' is based on the culture's communal socio-political organization” ("Relativity", n.d.). A Samoan society is more based on joint family. You don’t really see an immediate family if you are from Samoa. Everybody practically lives under the same roof and eats in the same kitchen. We don’t have nursing homes in Samoa. Older people will spend their last days at home with their families. We believe that since our parents gave us life and helped us flourish into the people we are not today, we owe it to them by taking good care of them. Being close to my extended family gives me a support network to fall back on. If someone doesn’t make enough money, the other family members will help them. According to Schaie and Willis (2002), “In addition to money and valuable property, the extended family often provides valuable services, such as help with moving and, of course, babysitting” (p. 156). We are farmers, so whatever we grow in our land we......

Circuit City (Extended Warranty) Case

...accounting for the extended warranty, approach Deferral of Revenue is best. My reasoning for this is because it allows you to view and potentially process the total transaction into two separate transactions making it easier to track and account for. This approach also gives you the potential to resell the warranty contracts to a third party provider if you find that the program is not profitable or does not conform to the way you want to handle operations of the extended warranty. I would account for and process each sale as one, the product being a separate transaction and two, sale of the extended warranty as another transaction. Any given sale could differ from another given sale in that maybe “customer A” buys a product and an extended warranty and “customer B” only buys the product. How do you account for different transactions of the same product? I propose you do this by viewing and accounting them as two separate and individual transactions. As the case states the revenue is not fully complete because services rendered have not been earned until the extended warranty period is complete. You can still earn interest on the money by putting it into a separate account maybe something like an escrow account and tracking it that way until the contract is complete and you can enter the remaining portion as net profit. By accepting this approach of accounting you can also adjust any numbers that may fall short or exceed the $20 estimate of an extended warranty’s......

Nuclear Family and Extended Family

...Nuclear Family and Extended Family Family is the most basic social unit in any society. A family is a unit that consists of biologically related people that live together in a house. There are two types of family: Nuclear family and Extended family. It is necessary to understand difference between nuclear family and extended family to explain advantages or disadvantages of them. Nuclear family is a family unit consisting of a mother and father and their children. Extended family is a family group that consists of parents, children, and other close relatives, often living in close proximity. Because of this population difference, there are some advantages or disadvantages of extended family and nuclear family. Extended family is a natural concept that is still very popular in many cultures such as Turkey. This type of family includes men and his wife, their children, spouses of children and grandchildren. Each person in these families has different positions and responsibilities. For instance, women look after children, clean their house and cook food as housewives. On the other hand, men work to earn money to provide their life conditions. In addition, in this type of family, there is a hierarchy between the each family member. Therefore, each member has to respect the eldest person of those families and this person makes every critical decision. This hierarchy prepares each member of family to real life. Members of these families can adapt to business life easily. Moreover...

Interpretive Sociology research using existing sources is the type of research involved in this article. A symbolic-interaction approach was given and qualitative data was used in discovering the subjective sense people make of this/their world. The article proves that culture sticks with a person and/or group for a lifetime and through generations. It directly relates to the non-materialistic part of culture and the beliefs and values of each group. The main concept of the article is to show that different racial/ethnic groups have different types of extended families. The Asian-Americans show that their culture values responsibility. This also shows that families remain one of the most important aspects in their society; to them being a family member is usually what they identify with as the master status. Taking the elderly into their homes and watching over and taking care of them can be classified as one of......
