Terrorism exists throughout the world; in Russia, Nizhnevartovsk to be exact The Red Storm is Rising. Thomas Leo Clancy Jr. aka Tom Clancy projected there will be a third World War; this one was initiated in Russia, ironically from Russia targeting oil by the Soviets. The attack led to Soviet Union aiming to taking over the Persian Gulf which is a threat to the United States of America and many other countries. The objective is oil; the turnout is World War three. NATO is concerned due to the fact of the Soviet Army attempting to take over the Persian Gulf which is a real pivot point. It is followed by a strategic attack methods from the Soviet Army on structures and such but is quickly defeated by NATO forces which led the Soviet’s to expand and use alternatives to try to defeat NATO forces. It was not so dominant that Soviets quit, which is why they almost one a battle in Iceland however they had a weak link how gave up critical information about the Soviet Army. Tom Clancy studied military science so these scenarios were logical and realistic. The fact that there was an order of attack and a strategized method of attack are key situations that really expand your imagination in this book. For example when US attacked Soviet bombers and weakened the Soviets force in Germany is completely accurate, or at least sounds like it would be accurate. Whether it was NATO using forces to take the strength of the Persian Gulf back or the battle in Iceland this seemed to happen randomly on the map, but still was able to achieve the compelling idea that it was covert missions. However, you could feel like the fact that three people initiated this by setting fire in the oil field may leave you questioning the truth behind this. Three people could set the fires but all the work they had to do, sneaking past the engineering staff and opening hundreds of oil valves…...

Her company who had hired the employee after the employee’s company had went out of business then that owner rehired the employee after his business became booming again then he went out of business which left that employee unemployed so the owner of the company was responsible for the unemployment claim. Since the owner’s account was put into deficit that threatened her unemployment insurance tax rate even though the employee had voluntarily left her company. The owner felt that this claim shouldn’t be right and that she would be afraid to hire anyone else. Another employer unknowing of the law hired and then fired an employee without proper documentation leading to the employee obtaining unemployment benefits in which they learned their lesson and had no trouble since they filed the proper documentation. With the current economy in the condition it is in and at the unemployment rate at the time of the article at 9 percent which is really high, smaller businesses don’t understand how the unemployment insurance premiums are computed.

Obesity problems within the community has been going on well over ten years, but with the new technology and community leaders, plans have been put into place to gather information and start making changes happen.

After the assessment was conducted, the team created implementation plans in the Coweta County community.

One fight, they are trying to get a grasp on, is the fight against sexually transmitted infections (STIs). “Centers of Diseases Control estimates that there are more than 19.7 million new STIs cases in the United States each year” (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2013, pg. 2).

...Journal Article Review: Use of prayer and scripture in therapy Liberty University Use of prayer and scripture in therapy Summary Effectively integrating psychology and theology has been an ongoing endeavor for many Christian therapists who wish to be ethically sound in their therapeutic practices and yet honor the use of the Holy Spirit as the ultimate Counselor and Comforter. Use of prayer and scripture in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy is a study that focuses specifically on the efficacy of the use of prayer and scripture within the Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) model. While CBT is more than 30 years old (Tan, 2007, pg. 101), it has been “expanded to include mindfulness and acceptance-based therapies” (Tan, 2007, pg. 101). The author bases his article on the findings that there are a minimum of 10 outcome studies providing empirical support regarding the efficacy of “religiously-oriented or spiritually-oriented CBT with religious clients” (Tan, 2007, pg. 102). The article describes the author’s development and use of an ethical and appropriate approach to utilizing prayer and scripture within a Christian modality of CBT. The author has used this approach in a variety of settings including hospital, college, and private practice. The key points to his Christian approach to CBT very briefly include the emphasis of agape love, dealing adequately with past issues, the possibility of demonic involvement, use of alignment with God’s word, focusing on problems......

...Article Review Silvia Arambula MGT 426 December 7, 2015 Robert Sell Article Review Learning Organization is an organization that acquires knowledge and innovates fast enough to survive and thrive in a rapidly changing environment. Learning organizations (1) create a culture that encourages and supports continuous employee learning, critical thinking, and risk taking with new ideas, (2) allow mistakes, and value employee contributions, (3) learn from experience and experiment, and (4) disseminate the new knowledge throughout the organization for incorporation into day-to-day activities (BusinessDictionary.com, 2014). The main difference is that organizational learning has focused on observation and analysis of the processes of individual and collective learning within organizations, whereas the literature on learning organizations is action oriented and geared towards applying specific diagnostic and evaluative methodological tools that can contribute to identifying, promoting and assessing the quality of learning processes in the organization (Wathne, 2012). Article Summary There are many significant factors of an efficacious business organization at the currently evolving, shifting and vigorous global business setting, one of these significant factors are organizational learning and institutionalization of the learning organization. It is worth taking that one of the crucial components of an organization is its employees and the commitment and loyalty of its......

...The overall purpose of the article is to gain a better understanding behind the attitudes and personal opinions of having a smoke-free campus. It continues to go into more specific depth regarding a smoke-free campus such as the most effective way to initiate and retain a smoke-free campus. Within this pool of knowledge, it will show some of the main reasoning behind why people that smoke want to keep a campus from becoming smoke-free and will also show people urges behind wanting a campus to become smoke-free. This will give two fully biased views from both complete opposites (a smoke-free campus versus a smoking campus.) Some of the bigger issues that Cho and DeVaney wanted to evaluate the motives behind the college students. This includes the variety of thinking and learning methods, reasons behind their actions, and meanings that give the students their urges towards these actions. By doing so, it will assist in understanding the motives, attitudes, and urges on a deeper level by evaluating “why” they want what they want, and “why” they did what they did. Another issue that the authors wanted to acknowledge is the college students’ reactions as well as their actions. They wanted to understand how the students would react to a change in the smoking policy at their college and what they would do to fix it if they did not like it or how they would help enforce the policy if they did like it. Cho and DeVaney conducted their research in two types of methods: field......
