Introduction Jim Fogle has worked in the technical sector for more than 30 years. He has held various positions within the same company throughout his career. During this time, he has witnessed the introduction of new technologies while countless others have gone obsolete. Although Fogle possesses several years of proven industry experience, his career path does not reflect his performance or skills. In fact, Fogle’s career has tended to move on a downward slope. Originally a member of the Engineering department, Fogle has found himself serving within progressively “lesser” roles. Twenty years ago, Fogle served as an area support manager and coordinated technical service and support over the Southeast region. Fifteen years ago, Fogle served as a trainer for contractors seeking product certification. Now in his mid-fifties, he provides over-the-phone support for a network of certified technicians. Each of Fogle’s positions has provided further insight into various aspects of the information technology industry. Fogle is also in a unique position as he is able to leverage knowledge of previous technologies in addition to that of current product lines. His situation; however, is an interesting paradox, as his career path has progressively moved him into positions with fewer opportunities for advancement rather those with upward mobility. Rarely, has Fogle been granted the opportunity to interview for a promotion. He has even been approached on occasion regarding early retirement or voluntary severance (J. Fogle, personal communication, August 12, 2006). When a primary goal of business is to achieve maximum efficiency by best utilizing its human resources, it may seem counterproductive to restrict the ability of an employee to contribute to organizational success based merely on age. This, however, appears to be an alarming trend…...

Homeless Youth

...Homeless Youth: Research, Intervention, and Policy by Karen Spuriel Coleman- MBA Abstract Homelessness among youth in the U.S. is disturbingly common, with an estimated annual prevalence of at least 5 percent for those ages 12 to 17. Although homeless youth appear throughout the nation, they are most visible in major cities. Rigorous research on this special population is sparse, making it difficult to capture an accurate and complete picture. Despite its limitations, recent research describes homeless youth as a large and diverse group. Many homeless youth have multiple overlapping problems including medical, substance abuse, and emotional and mental problems. Literature suggests that comprehensive and tailored services are needed that address both the immediate and long-term needs of homeless youth. Where appropriate, services should include assistance with meeting basic needs as perceived by youth as a gateway to other needed services. In addition to serving those already homeless, interventions are needed to prevent homelessness among at-risk youth. Lessons for Practitioners, Policy Makers, and Researchers • As used here, the term “homeless youth” focuses on minors who have experienced literal homelessness on their own—i.e., who have spent at least one night either in a shelter or "on the streets" without adult supervision. On occasion, where warranted by the research being discussed, the term is also used to describe homeless young adults up to age 24.......

Youth Gangs

...Describing Gang Membership: An Examination of Youth Gangs Kiara C. Ross Georgia Gwinnett College Introduction Numerous studies have been conducted on the subject of youth in gangs and the many characteristics of a member or a nonmember. In this paper I will discuss what is considered a member of a youth gang, a nonmember and anything else in between. I have read three articles and I will compare and contrast each of their findings in detail. Article 1 The first article that I will be discussing was an in depth study done on youth in Canada. This article focused on “the frequency and stability of gang membership, family characteristics, concurrent behaviors, friendships, and school attitudes of stable and unstable gang members and non-gang members in childhood and early adolescence” (Craig, Vitaro, Gagnon, and Timblay, 2002 pg. 53). It also “examined the stability of belonging to a gang in early adolescence, the behavior profiles, family characteristics, and friendships of non-gang and gang members” (Craig et al. 2002 pg. 53). Craig et al. explained that there were three models that were used to understand the “relationship between gang membership and delinquency” which were the selection model, the social facilitation model, and the enhancement model. According to Craig et al.: A selection model is consistent with social control theory and the propensity theory of crime. According to this model, gangs recruit individuals who are already delinquent or have a......

Youth Violence

...Tackling Youth Violence in Schools Eric Mack American Intercontinental University Abstract This paper highlights the causes of school violence and aggressive behavior among youth in our society. It addresses family issues in the home, school related factors, and the influence of mass media on violence in our schools. Evidence suggests that schools have trouble tackling the complicated social, economic, and personal causes that generate the violent behavior of numerous young people. With the increasing wave of school violence, schools and communities are pulling together in response to this increasing crisis. Tackling Youth Violence in Schools Youth committed crimes continue to be an issue in the United States. Because of the increasingly high rates of juvenile delinquency, modern society has taking an interest in its causes and its effects. Juvenile delinquency is a serious and costly problem that present concerns in relation to the welfare of our families, neighborhoods and schools. (Horton, A.,2001, p.g. 50). Education professionals must take steps to develop and implement meaningful programs in order to combat this rapidly growing problem. According to Bullock & Fitzsimons (1996), “To work effectively with students who display aggressive and violent behaviors is a challenge that personnel in schools face nationwide.” Therefore, to effectively battle youth violence in schools, the contributing attributes that causes this behavior must be......

Youth

...rich and poor the most important and significant proxy of a society which plays a decisive role is the youth and fresh blood generation of that society. If we analyze the role and duty in a society we can say as; Youth are back bone to the nation. They can change the future of the society with their well being and courageous behavior. They are here to show us that which we have not been willing to look at within ourselves. Unfortunately today we find the youth those who are more interested in other places which are not useful to them as well as nation. They choose to spend their days doing drugs and playing video games. They spend their nights partying and living it up, so to speak. More and more young men of this age group are sitting at home in front of their televisions playing games all day instead of bettering themselves or going to work. They have no vision and if they do have dreams they do not have the drive to make any attempt at achieving them. We must get control of this. We must motivate our youth. We must teach responsibility and goal setting. I fear if we do not we will soon be supporting an entire generation of homeless and needlessly on welfare families. Things have to change, with our schools, with the older generation being good role models, with the older generation being mentors, and with the youth who are right now doing nothing. Those of you are in age of teen, you have a choice. You can allow yourselves to stay your course and do nothing or you can......

...Social-networking sites have taken the world by a storm leading to nothing less than a revolution. A lot of concerns have been voiced about social networking sites taking over in our lives. However, one major issue that has been overlooked is the changing mind-set of the youth due to the social networking sites. The adolescence years shape our outlook, our personality and mould us into what we are. So when we grow up in a world where our popularity is directly proportional to the number of “likes” and the “haaawt” comments we get on our photoshop-enhanced profile picture and live with people constantly competing for the coveted title of the king/queen of the virtual world, it is bound to have a profound impact of the psyche of an entire generation. The focus and time we spend on creating our brand on these social networking sites is a standing testimony to the awakening of the narcissist in us. At any hangout or get-together more time is spent on clicking snaps and updating the virtual world on what’s going on, rather than enjoying the event. The photos are uploaded within an hour, and then begins the flood of “Likes” and comments. The social networking sites and the culture they have created is thus a breeding ground for a vain, self-obsessed younger generation. We forget that we chose the people we want to interact with on these sites. So the validity of the opinions on these sites need to be reconsidered before we get cozy in a shell of false sense of unwanted......

Mcdonalds Hamburgers Age over Time

...Do McDonald’s Hamburgers age over time? Are they healthy for you? This experiment will answer those questions. My experiment is to leave out a McDonalds burger unrefrigerated for two weeks. Other people who have done this experiment left out their hamburger for fourteen years, and the burger still didn’t age. Everyone loves McDonald’s burgers, but exactly how healthy are they? Other people also have left out their McDonald’s hamburgers, but on accident. One man from Utah, David Whipple, says he bought his hamburger in July of 1999. He found the burger around 2006, and it looked new so he kept it. He still has the burger now and says it looks almost new after fourteen years. Also, in 2010, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt conducted a series of tests for Serious Eats to figure out if different burgers would rot over time. He found that "the burger doesn't rot because its small size and relatively large surface area help it to lose moisture very fast. Without moisture, there's no mold or bacterial growth." One man compared a regular home-ground burger with a McDonald’s quarter pounder. The home-ground burger had mold on it after a while, and the quarter pounder did not. This is because the quarter pounder is smaller in size than the regular home-ground burger. The larger the burger is the more time it takes to dehydrate, giving mold more of a chance to grow. One thing I learned while researching my topic is the ingredients. The ingredients for a McDonald’s burger look harmless, until......

...Youth workers’ work is very diverse because it depends on the settings, the population and the ages. However, the goals are the same which they are for the benefits of youths. Youth work should have an impact on young people’s lives via processes of developments, enjoyments, taking parts voluntary, with relevant learnings based on young people’s expressed needs and interests. The work with young people is very challenging because they are apprentice adults, on the verge of a new life and the workers are the trainer teaching them the skills needed to become qualified adults or fully functioning. For me, I work with immigrant youth and their families. The major goal is to help them adjust to America’s life. The paths to the goals are so difficult for us and for them because they didn’t come to this country by choice but they were obligated by their families whom are escaping from wars. By transitioning from country to another, this generation has faced many pressures, has experience discomforting confusion, disquieting irritations and perplexities. We find the adjustment to be difficult socially and economically. They have to be engaged into a new world including new friends, new neighbors, new schools, new languages and new environments. They had to flee to another country to refuge while waiting for the welcoming approval by the US. Some families they had waited for years before they came to America. They waited between five and nine. I will describe my work and the......

And Youth

...Age and youth representation in the McDonald’s advert Parallel Lives In the McDonald’s advert parallel lives age and youth are represented in both stereotypical and different ways. The aim of the advert is to show that even though people appear to have completely different lives everyone has something in common E.g. McDonalds. When the audience are first introduced to the “youth”, loud RnB music as diegetic sound and then becomes diegetic sound when close up of the youths shown. The youths are also hanging around with a group of friends, commonly known as a gang. The gang is out on the streets. This is implying that it is common for teenagers to hang around on the streets, playing music and disturbing others. They are wearing dark colours for example black, maroon, dark brown and dark blue while also wearing hoodies. Their trousers are hanging low, resulting in their pants being on display. From using these conventions, McDonalds are giving a stereotypical representation of teenagers-loud, a disturbance and also not being able to dress properly. Whereas the older man is on his own. This is implying that it is common for the older generation to be on their own, perhaps being lonely. He wears neutral colours like creams, beige, and brown, grey and tan. He is wearing his trousers up to his waist and also wearing braces to help keep them up. In addition to this, he is wearing his jacket over his coat. Overall this is suggesting that older people dress completely covered up......

...Joshua Roberts CM 101: Youth Ministry Philosophy & Leadership 17 May 2015 My Philosophy for Youth Ministry I believe that youth ministry is vital to the growth and effectiveness of the church—local and universal. In order for the church to grow, the adult generations of the church needs to insure the faith by training children and young adults “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord”(Ephesians 6:4). When the youth of the church are not taught the importance of a vibrant and active relationship with God, then the church will see its ranks become thin and aged. With age comes wisdom and experience, but with youth comes energy and determination. In order for the church to be effective it must see youth ministry as a vital part of the body. Since the church needs youth ministry, it is important that the youth ministry itself has a vision and structure to provide organization to reach goals and growth. I believe that youth ministry needs to focus on three key goals or values in order to be effective in the local church. These values are to connect, grow, and serve. These three values will provide structure and vision to ensure a healthy youth ministry. The first area that one should start with when building a youth ministry that will be profitable to the church and its families is connection. We need to make sure that our teens and parents of teens are connecting with God and others. Connecting with God is the base foundation that any believer should be building......

...Hope for Our Youth Jentel Paolino CHS 111.99 March 31, 2013 Early Childhood education (ECE) is a frequently used term when the discussing the welfare of today’s children. From the early age of four children are introduced to an educational environment in hopes of developing the necessary skills to bloom into well rounded individuals. What a child learns in their early years falls heavily on the shoulders of caregivers and teachers because these people play a major role in growing youths lives. However our educators can’t do it alone and with the assistance of federally funded resources such as Head Start, special education, and after school programs children are able receive the necessary help that they need. Head start is a program that provides inclusive early child development services to children and families with low income, these services include free and reduced school breakfast and lunches as well as additional help in reading and math (Morrison, 2012). This program positively impact children in ECE programs because it provides children who are less fortunate or come from disadvantaged backgrounds with a high start and foundation for school success. “Most advocates of public preschool argue that early schooling of low- income children is an investment that pays off in the long term by reducing the number of children who will perform poorly in school, become teenage parents, commit criminal acts, or depend on welfare (Chen, 2008). Parents also benefit from......

...In words of James” Youth is the joy, the little bird that has broken out of the eggs and is eagerly waiting to spread out its wings in the open sky of freedom and hope.” Power of Youth Youth is the spring of Life. It is the age of discovery and dreams. India is of largest youth population in the world today. The entire world is eyeing India as a source of technical manpower. They are looking at our youth as a source of talents at low costs for their future super profits. If Indian youth make up their mind and work in close unity with working class people, they can hold the political power in their hands. Indian youth has the power to make our country from developing nation to a developed nation. Is it a dream? No, their dreams take them to stars and galaxies to the far corners of the unknown and some of them like our own Kalpana Chawla pursue their dream, till they realize it and die for it in process. hopes of youth The youth hopes for a world free of poverty, unemployment, inequality and exploitation of man by man. A world free of discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, language and gender. A world full of creative challenges and opportunities to conquer them. But let us convert these hopes in reality. Role of Youth: The role of youth is of most importance in today’s time. It has underplayed itself in field of politics. It should become aspiring entrepreneur rather than mere workers. It can play a vital role in elimination of terrorism. Young......

Youth Labor

...Youth Labor Labor Relations BUS 405 Professor Frederick Brandt October 23, 2011 Good Evening Staff, This meeting today is to discuss the Youth & Labor laws and regulations. This year we have funds to hire about 20 students. For those of you that will be managing time & attendance there are some laws and regulations that we will cover today. The topics will be as follow: Work Permits & Age Certificates, Work Hours, Wage and Hour, and Child Labor Statistics. Work Permits & Age Certificates - The federal government does not require work permits or proof-of-age certificates for a minor to be employed. Many states, however, do require them for workers of certain ages. In addition to state labor departments, school guidance counselors might know if permits or proof-of-age certificates are required in that particular state. The Department of Labor will issue age certificates if the minor employee's state does not issue them, or if the minor is requested by his or her employer to provide one. However, the vast majority of age certificates are issued by states. The purpose of these certificates is to protect the employer from prosecution for employing an under-aged worker. The possession of an age certificate constitutes a good faith effort to comply with minimum age requirements. Some states require work permits or age certificates for young workers. In fact, most of the age certificates issued to young workers are issued by states. The fines for......

Will Changing the Australian Legal Drinking Age Be the Demise of Youth Music Festivals?

...Australian legal drinking age be the demise of youth music festivals? | Stage Two Research Paper | | Maya Burvill 16568 | 4/twenty-one/2011 | Academic Research Paper – Stage Two | Will changing the Australian legal drinking age be the demise of youth music festivals? Abstract: Binge drinking and alcohol incurred road accidents by youth are a growing concern in Australia; issues which governments are looking for strategies to control. One solution that is currently being debated is to increase the minimum legal drinking age from eighteen to twenty-one. This option would create some unintended consequences that will adversely impact Australia’s youth and the Australian events industry. Alcohol is integral to the success of any large scale licenced event as it encourages attendance, is a key profit source and often is the main source of sponsorship. This paper evaluates the beneficial and detrimental effects of changing the legal drinking age in Australia, focusing on the potential detrimental impact such a move would have on youth and Australian music festivals. It was concluded that whilst there are significant health benefits, changing the minimum legal drinking age in Australia would ultimately have a negative impact on youth as it will encourage them to participate in illegal behaviour and seriously threaten the financial viability of Australian music festivals. Will changing the Australian legal drinking age be the demise of youth music......
