Scenario 4 Staying in school My I speak with you on a matter that I am going thorough, sure give me a minute to finish my task. I don’t think I will be able to stay in school any longer, I work long hours and have two kids and can’t find a balance and topping this off, I am not doing that well, what is most frustrating, I am just taking foundation classes. You must not have done well on the compass testing. I would first go to your instructor and see what your options are of passing or failing. Go to your advisor, and ask can you retake that part of your compass to see if you can test out, What is most important is, finding a way to get your balance, you’re probably creating your own internal stress, beating yourself up for just one grade. With going to school and working and two small children it is very hard to ensure everything stay functional. Don’t get overwhelmed, you will make it. If I were you would I take these foundation classes and strengthen up my skills for the semesters that are needed, you think foundation classes are hard wait till you get into the course classes. What I suggest devising a time schedule of your day and see when the most affective time you could study. Another suggestion, get a sitter, ask a family, or your mom can they take them for while you studying, also you can put the children to bed an hour earlier and let them watch a movie for that hour, while you are studying, another thing study on your lunch hour, study when the kids are studying, or when they are asleep, studying with no distractions. I will give you something that worked for me, prepare the next day supper the night before going to bed, this will be one less thing you will not have to do when you come in the house, Oh! and let the crock pot be your friend or just cooking that meal while your…...

Staying Out of Misery in Missouri

...whose mission is to advance the knowledge and prevention of adolescent depression and suicide through awareness, education and research.” (CHADS Coalition, 2008) There is also the Network of Care, which provides an interactive website for people to get information about mental health services. (Network of Care, 2008) The Department of Health offers training to school counselors on suicide prevention. The training is called QPR and it allows people to provide instruction which typically takes from one to two hours that will provide general awareness about suicide, teach the average non-professional person the warning signs of suicidal thinking and behavior, and teach three basic intervention skills that can help avert the tragedy of suicide. (Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Division of Career Education. 2008) It seems that while dealing with youth, teachers and those adults in the school setting would have much contact with possibly suicidal youth and would be able to recognize some of the signs. Unfortunately, only four counselors in the state have this training, they are available to schools on a limited basis. For families in crisis, such as single mom and baby who were featured in the article from the American Public Welfare Association there are many resources available in Missouri. The Missouri Department of Social Services offers programs through Family-Centered Services. These services are provided to families and children when a......

Staying on Course

...STAYING ON COURSE Kendra Harvey Pre 100 sect. 7116 October 12, 2013 Kendra Harvey Pre 100 Sect. 7116 12 October 2013 STAYING ON COURSE Enrolling in college at 26 years old was very intimidating to me. Although I graduated from high school, I have a real problem with self confidence. Keeping up with my classmates from high school on social media sites, I became discouraged and depressed from seeing how successful some of them had become. I often wondered why I haven’t become successful. Why was I made to be a failure? Then it dawned on me that I, myself was my own problem. At different points in my life I’ve often given up when I was faced with a challenge. I always took interest in the healthcare field, and I pursued and completed a certification in nursing. When certain circumstances caused for me to have to go back to school to recertify, instead of pressing on I choose defeat. My greatest obstacles now are my children, for I don’t have a strong support system and because of this I have allowed myself to be defeated by other obstacles in life. When I got into college, my biggest challenge was staying focused and motivated. I continued to stay out late, I would put off assignments until the last minute, I did cram study sessions, I was lazy all the time and couldn’t concentrate, and I missed classes and fell behind on home assignments. This caused a major problem for me like receiving failing grades. I blamed everything......

Staying Current

...Workshop Six, Activity 6.3: Staying Current on Healthcare Policy Genaro H. Estores MBA 729 – HCM 552 Indiana Wesleyan University Workshop Six, Activity 6.3: Staying Current on Healthcare Policy Staying current with health care legislation is an overwhelming task. Rules and regulations vary from state to state and family to family, depending on individual circumstances. The push to overhaul health care in the United States has resulted in more confusion than ever. When it comes to laws that affect your health and wellbeing, leave no stone unturned. Never assume that what you’ve heard is all there is. If you have questions about health care policy or reform, check with multiple reliable sources. Keeping up with changes in health care is a daunting task. Some may say it is impossible to do so. It seems as though we are constantly bombarded with the “new” - new medical discoveries, new treatments, new technology, new rules and regulations, new equipment, new policies and procedures, new expectations, new forms, and a lot more. These can require some sort of change on our part. So how do we stay on top of it all? Let me offer an approach: 1. What Do You Really Need to Know? - While it might sound radical, I believe a nurse does not need to be on top of it all. Identify the areas of the health care sector that are relevant and of interest to you. You would want to be on top of changes in your particular specialty as well as policy, technology and regulatory issues. ...

...Staying In Foster Care After the Age of 18 and then Going Back to School to Finish Degree Many Children after the age of 18 decide to leave the system. I was one of the lucky children that got a change to go back to court every year and the judge let me stay in foster care until I was 21. Voluntary young adults between the ages of 18 and 21 who meet the requirements and are presently or were formerly under foster care might be eligible to receive the benefits from this program, including a stipend for expenses, health care, more time to complete school or pursue a higher degree and counseling from a caseworker. This let me save up some money and let me take my basic two years of college. I took classes at Jamestown Community College and never finished my degree back then. I was more worried about making the money back then I was getting a college education. I never thought that piece of paper would effect my future today. If I could go back in time today and teach all the kids what I learned back then what I know now. Stay home with your parents and get your college education when you are young. After I turned 21 I moved down to Pennsylvania and went to Pennsylvania Culinary Arts because I thought that was something that I wanted to do for the rest of my life. After about two years of being there I finally decided that wasn’t for me I and went on to work for Dish Network for four years until they closed down. After they closed I moved back home and tried to......

Staying Up for Better Test Scores

...Staying Up For Better Test Scores Alan Ward PSY/315 July 10, 2014 Ian Rosen Introduction When it comes to taking a big exam we all approach it in different ways some are good and some not so good. But we all have our own ways that we think are the best for getting that high score. Many people study for days or even weeks for exams in hopes of raising their knowledge on a given subject. Others stay up all night in hopes of cramming the information in and these people believe this is the best way to gain and retain knowledge. We will be testing which is better, to stay up at cram for an exam the night before or to study long term. We will attempt to quantify which method is better by examining the end result, the grades achieved on these exams. Staying Up Teens who stay up late at night cramming are more likely to have academic problems the following day doing poorly on the test they studied for” finds a new study by, (University of California, Los Angeles UCLA, 2012). This staying up late tends to actually become a problem over time as students begin to give up more sleep over time. This lack of sleep has compounding effect and long-term implications. Students were asked to keep diaries of sleep patterns and test, quiz, and retention performance over fourteen days. The data showed that kids who didn’t get enough sleep were not only more likely to have problems understanding during class, a result the researchers had expected, but they were also more......

Thinking Big and Staying Small

...Abstract This report analyzes why Eli Lilly and Pfizer, both well-established companies, were unsuccessful in the introduction of innovative products, the 100 percent insulin “Humulin” and the first inhaled insulin “Exubera” and why “thinking big but acting small” is significant in the need to innovate and in knowing and keeping the customer. Big companies must think outside the box by solving their customer problems, making better products and creating value. Keywords: insulin, inhaler, customer Thinking Big and Staying Small Both Eli Lilly and Pfizer realized unforeseen decrease in market shares in their efforts to “enhance their technology trajectory” (Christensen, 1999) by introducing groundbreaking products in the market. For any market opportunity, validating the market appropriately and defining the products in terms of customer needs are crucial. Undoubtedly, poor planning and short-term investment horizons may have played roles in creating troubles for both companies. To explain why these companies failed, I will explore their mistakes hopefully establishing clear grounds for conclusions and strategic business recommendations. Mistakes Were Made Developing Products with No Market The Humulin-brand was technically successful. However, because of its premium price, the product had no takers. Its price was 25 percent higher compared to the animal-extracted insulin. Retailers were reluctant to add it to their crowded refrigerators of insulin products because......

...who we are. It defines every part of our lives, choosing friends, where we work and who we have relationships with. Most of the factors which shape someone’s personality are a result of his/her heredity and the environment in which he/she was exposed to. (Essays, 2013). A LSI (Life Style Inventory) self-description questionnaire was presented, allowing the raw material to be analyzed and examine our way of thinking and how it influences behavior. Our results are broken up into twelve styles that reflect on our personality. But what affect does our personality play into our lives. Do these styles have an impact on our management style? Do they define who we are or how we think? Did we develop our personal style from relationships, school, or curricular activites? Let's discuss what shapes our personalities and why we act the way we do. Looking over the results from the Life Style Inventory (LSI) test, there was a consistency noted within my specific scores. My two highest scores came for the passive/defensive style. My primary style was avoidance, with a score of 98%, and my backup style was dependent, with a score of 94%. It is apparent that these two styles are a strong description of who I am as a leader. According to the LSI, “The avoidance scale measures our tendency to use the defensive strategy of withdrawal” (Cooke & Lafferty, 1987-2015). Avoidance is often used in unfamiliar, threatening situations, for instance, when dealing with a challenge in......

Staying Ahead of the Game

...Staying ahead of the game by Marketing ON 20 February 2013 As the digital economy comes of age and the marketing disciplines struggle to adapt, we ask four senior practitioners about their professional evolution, how they stay up to date with the changes in their respective professions and what they look for in potential hires. David Redhill Partner and chief marketing officer Deloitte When you started your marketing career what was the digital component of your discipline and role like? I started my marketing career in a computer company, ICL, in 1981 – before desktop computers or even word processors were available to a junior PR and marketing officer. So that meant, ironically, that I was publicising and marketing a digital product in an analogue way. I would type up my press releases on an old IBM golf ball typewriter and hand draw my presentations on marketing strategy on plastic slides for overhead projection – so my marketing career really started in the pre-digital age. Dang, am I really that old?! What comprised your original education? I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in communications at the NSW Institute (now University) of Technology. It gave me a superb grounding in all aspects of media and communication – production, script writing, print, radio and television journalism, mass communication theory, and psychology, music and mass culture, professional writing, radio drama, etc etc. To this day I use just about all of those skills in my marketing......

Staying Focused

...Staying Focused According to Social Media Defined, “Social Media is the future of communication, a countless array of Internet based tools and platforms that increase and enhance the sharing of information.” In the late 1990’s when AOL Instant Messenger came out and Google Search Engine officially launched, did people ever think that this could be the start of a real world phenomenon? Twenty years ago does not sound like a long time when one looks at the progress technology has already made. Even though some people do not like the distraction of social media or the side effects that comes along with it, social media is here to stay. Technology is not always used in negative ways, it can be very beneficial to people as they go about there everyday life. In Tom Stafford’s article, “Does the Internet Rewire Your Brain?” he employs the rhetorical appeals of pathos and ethos effectively. However, his use of unsupported logical appeals may cause his readers to doubt his claim that social media does not rewire your brain. In Brad Friedman’s article, “This Is Your Brain On Social Media” he effectively convinces his audience that people’s brains change while on social media through the use of statistics and logical arguments paired with the use of emotions shown through pictures. Brad Friedman lays out his article in a unique way. He starts off by addressing his audience on how they may not all agree with the use of social media. He connects with the readers who disagree with him......

Staying on Her Toes

...Career in Focus: Staying on Her Toes Illustration by: Shutterstock. Dr. Kathleen Bower combines a love of movement with a passion for PT. By Christine Van Dusen October 2015 It was the season of “The Nutcracker” and the teenaged ballerina was dancing in pointe shoes for almost as many hours as she was awake. Every day she’d squeeze her battered feet into a pair of pale pink slippers, tie their silky ribbons around her slim ankles, then rise up on her toes and spin through a graceful series of pirouettes. After the curtain came down on the final show, she couldn’t point her feet or raise up en pointe; her ankles wouldn’t allow it. Her foot felt like it was on backward. This is when Dr. Kathleen Bower ’11 was first introduced to the world of physical therapy— and was set on the path to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) graduate who would combine her love of movement with a passion for injury prevention. Dance injuries have been on the rise for more than a decade, with a 37% increase reported from 1991 to 2007 in a study by the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Feet are crunched, strained, sprained. Ankles are twisted, elbows are bumped and bruised, and arms are broken during falls. Dancers risk losing mobility with every jeté. When dancing en pointe, the average pressure on the shoe’s toe box is about 220 pounds per square inch. Some of the associated injuries can be career-ending. Bower was fortunate,......

Staying Relevant Stimulation Answer

...Board and it determines how accountants in the United States conduct and format their reports. In order to keep things as transparent as possible the accounting records must be seen by a number of people outside of the organization. Competence: In order to be competent accountants and finance professionals must have secured education and practice that prepares them for their positions. They also have to continue their education by learning new information that may pertain to their practices. They also have to be sure that they are up to date with GAAP. Above all else they must be honest and display integrity. Objectivity: Accountants must be objective to be sure that they are avoiding any conflicts of interest. An example would be them staying away from performing any type of accounting service for a firm that they have a vested interest in. Helping out with a relatives company would be similar to a company that you have a vested interest in. Although you may able to be objective it would not look good and may cast doubt on your intentions so it is best to avoid that if possible. The main thing to remember is to stay away from any sort of dishonest practices. Confidentiality: This position puts a lot of the client’s personal information out there. It’s not limited to their financial information; there will be contact information of employees and information on businesses that the company interacts with. The ethical standards require financial professionals to keep that......
