The following article was contributed by Dr. Mae Sakharov, College, Graduate School Career Counseling. The thought of writing a college application personal statement of 250 to 650 words as part of a college application sends chills down many students' spines. They shudder at the thought of being judged on such a little piece of writing. Some spend restless nights thinking about what magnum opus lies buried in the depths of their unconscious. How can their story, most often that of a generally unscathed 17-year-old, be told in a way that is unique, putting them over the top with the admissions committee? The stress over what should go into an essay often rises beyond all appropriate proportions. Why is so much importance placed on a simple essay? There is an extensive amount of attention paid to this singular task. Books have been published on successful college essays, articles have been written about topics that work, and candidates themselves pontificate about how to succeed in getting into the college of their choice.All this tension makes this task even more difficult. Students feel increasingly burned out from working so hard in school and resentful that anyone should ask them to reveal themselves in writing when their record is evident from excellent grades and high scores on standardized tests scores. Such students will sabotage themselves with a defensive or lackluster essay. It is often rumored that the parent, not the student, composed the successful essay leading to the Ivy League. Although some parents may unduly intervene and dominate the essay-writing process, taking the radical step of writing the essay in its entirety is hopefully rare. It may be true that some parents at their wits' end may sit down at the computer and pound ahead. Honestly, this does happen, though such aggressive interference is evident in essays that pit the grandiosity of adolescent angst and "know it all" style against the more polished observations that come from the aged. Take comfort, for counselors and college admissionsoffices claim that they can immediately sense the perspective of a 50-year-old. After this impassioned diatribe, may I be so bold as to submit my own observations on steps that will facilitate the process of writing a college essay? First, read the questions that are being asked and really think about which one to answer. The Common Application has five essay choices that, when carefully read, can be adapted to different personal styles. Interesting essays can spring from ordinary subject matter. One young man recalled his grandmother's red lipstick as she returned home on the subway after a long day at work. From this glimmer came memories of his deceased grandfather purchasing a left-handed baseball mitt for his right-handed grandson so he would learn to play the game. This essay ended in a juxtaposing of roles with the boy, now a young man, pushing his stroke-ridden grandfather's wheelchair into an elevator. This essay, which was on a conventional subject (a most admired person), became a beautiful statement rather than a rehashed clichÃ ©, with its focus on the applicant's sensitivity to events that have transpired in his personal history. To state the obvious, successful applicants do not plagiarize or paraphrase from college essays published on the Internet. Nor is it necessary to read countless books about how to write successful essays: these can add to the confusion and take applicants away from their own source of interestÃ¢â¬âthemselves. Keep in mind that the personal statement is not the only thought-provoking writing required on applications! Supplemental forms and short-answer questions can be even more telling and should also be taken seriously (though not too seriously, of course). It can be more difficult to answer a question such as "What was the best advice you have ever been given?" or "What character in a novel do you most relate to?" than it is to write a longer piece. The application should be a lively representation of oneÃ¢â¬â¢s inner life and not a report card, so share different aspects and interests. For example, a person who wants to study engineering might spend lazy afternoons listening to the scores of a grand opera or strumming a banjo. What you may know very well about yourself is completely unknown to those who will read your application. It is better to keep things simple than to try to impress; better to describe sitting in a cafÃ © drinking coffee than fabricating a grandiose scheme. R emember that your story is special and when shared honestly it will be received as a gift. HonestyÃ¢â¬âsimple honestyÃ¢â¬âis the basis of a strong personal statement. Writing about whatÃ¢â¬â¢s true and whatÃ¢â¬â¢s important to you and what inspires you is the best way to reveal your authentic self to colleges. Photo credit: courtesy of Dr. MaeSakharov, Ed.D

aniRonald Benitez Ms. Lara English 2 01/16/2013 Have you ever heard about the Russian Revolution and other important events of Russia? George Orwell, amazing author, published a novel in 1947, called Animal Farm, that intelligently satirized animals in a farm to the events that occurred during the Russian Revolution and the events surrounding the Russian Revolution. Through the character Napoleon and his use of terror and propaganda on the citizens of the Animal Farm, George Orwell castigates mad dictator Joseph Stalin and his reign on Russia. The main character in Animal Farm, Napoleon, had many interesting traits but as the story progresses he evolves into a different character. In the beginning of the novel, Napoleon is not muchÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦In chapter 9 Boxer dies working and he was a hard worker. Boxer believed everything that napoleon said was good so his main mottoes were Ã¢â¬Å"I will work harderÃ¢â¬ and Ã¢â¬Å"Comrade napoleon is always right.Ã¢â¬ Because these mottoes served Napoleon good, Napoleon decided to tell the animals to adapt Boxers mottoes and they did because they wanted to be as good as Boxer was. There are more examples of propaganda used in Animal Farm and it is one of the biggest techniques used by Napoleon to gain power in the Animal Farm. Joseph Stalin, the leader of Russia during the Russian revolution, and Napoleon, head of the Animal Farm, have a more association than any other character in Animal Farm or historical political figure. Napoleon and Stalin share character traits like intelligence, leadership, and devotion. Napoleon had many followers on the Animal Farm just as Stalin had devoted followers that admired him. Napoleon and Stalin, however, did not make everyone happy. The enemy that Stalin had to deal during the Revolution was Leon Trotsky. Trotsky disapproved of what Stalin was doing with Russia and its citizens. In Animal Farm, Napoleon had to deal with Snowball. Joseph Stalin was a big supporter of communism and Napoleon had similar beliefs but the government was called Animalism. With many similarities, these two figures were not the exact same but the author, George Orwell, created Napoleon in Stalins image.

DNA forensics is a division of forensic science that focuses on the use of genetic material in criminal investigation to answer questions pertaining to legal situations, including criminal and civil cases. Through DNA testing, law enforcement officers are able to identify human remains or the individual responsible for a crime. DNA testing is a highly advanced scientific process that involves replicating the human DNA sequence to create a genetic map of an individual. Because of its reliability, DNA testing has become a significant factor in criminal cases. However, it has also been identified as having the potential to violate privacy and constitutional rights. The DNA identification process consists of five stages. These five stagesÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Recently, DNA testing has been employed to create a genetic database of endangered animal species. Using this information, scientists have even cloned animals. When life arose on Earth about 4 billion years ago, the first types of cells to evolve were prokaryotic cells. For approximately 2 billion years, prokaryotic-type cells were the only form of life on Earth. The oldest known sedimentary rocks found in Greenland are about 3.8 billion years old. The oldest known fossils are prokaryotic cells, 3.5 billion years in age, found in Western Australia and South Africa. The nature of these fossils, and the chemical composition of the rocks in which they are found, indicates that these first cells made use of simple chemical reactions to produce energy for their metabolism and growth. Eukaryotic cells evolved into being between 1.5 and 2 billion years ago. Eukaryotic cells appear to have arisen from prokaryotic cells, specifically out of the archaea. Indeed, there are many similarities in molecular biology of contemporary archaea and eukaryotes. However, the origin of the eukaryotic organelles, specifically chloroplasts and mitochondria, is expla ined by evolutionary associations between primitive nucleated cells and certain respiratory and photosynthetic bacteria, which led to the development of these organelles and the associated explosion of eukaryotic diversity.

Question: Disuses About The Australian Security Investment Principle? Answer: Introducation The Australian Security and Investment Commissions Principle 7 states that it is the rightful duty of a companys head directorial board to identify risk and devise measures to undertake the task to correct/reduce them. In case if a company is incapable of identifying and dealing with the risk detected, not only will it affect the company as a whole but also affect its stockholders. Such neglect may also affect the society, consumers and the current as well as the potential investors and employees as a whole. Certain propositions were kept by the ASX in regard to the topic at hand, one of marketing requires that the top directorial board make their stand and contribute to the formation of a committee which will solely dedicate itself to risk management. The committee will prioritize the handling of risk in all efficiency by conducting yearly reviews the framework of risk management and insure its absolute readiness by implementing any new changes required. Three members will be appointed as directors and will be bestowed with the power to deal with their task in utmost independence. It has been stated by the ASX that the directorial board in the company are required to disclose what necessary auditory details related to its build and overall functions in running of the organization. It is necessary that the company reveal any auditory material that might lead to a potential social, economical or environmental jeopardy and state the measure that it would implement for their necessary corrections. In the scenario that is provided to us, it was seen that the directorial committee of a company called the Ardent leisure is condemned for causing a small disaster and not having made any corrective measures for the correction of their failure. It has further been confirmed that the company had not only failed to realize the risk that it had undertaken but didnt bother to take measures for its mitigation in any way. It is known that if an accident were to occur in particular premises, all the damage caused by the said incident falls on the shoulders of the current occupier. Hence, the lives that were claimed resulting to the said accident in our case are to be tackled by Ardent leisure. Any framework adopted for the management of a potential mishap caused by a risk might have prevented any anomaly in the first place. The crisis that happened before the occurrence of the Dreamworld incident might have been dealt with if certain identification measures were in work. It can also be said that the measures might have prevented several casualties. If a certain degree of Professionalism was shown by the company, the disaster might have been prevented and the deceased and their families might have been at peace. Not only did the incident lead to a socio-economic and environmental loss, but it also had a bad effect on the companys goodwill. It is the legal obligation of the directorial board of a company to implement measure for the identification and handling of risk related to any financial or accounting task and to also prepare a framework for the management of risk as said in the Section 7 under the good corporate governance. It was previously discussed that the company is required to start up a committee with purpose to deal with the said task of assigning, finding and dealing with the supposed risk that might lead to future anomalies and accidents as in the case that is provided to us. It was further said that this committee has the independence to prioritise only on the risk factor and work on the mitigation of any potential risk by taking a select few measures as in making the company cooperate by asking them for the full disclosure of all the documents that show risk, whether they be social, environmental, economical or financial. In this incident, it is seen that the company, Ardent leisure was supposed to rightfully established a team in order to deal with the Dreamworld incident and to address the issues that had now taken disastrous turns. Since such a team was never created, post crisis issues remained untouched and undealt with in that instance since the team could have taken measures for reconciliation and betterment by upholding the principle 7 of ASK, which as read before deals with the risk management and finding and rectifying any sort risk that a company is liable to face in the near future events. As said before, if the presence of such a committee have resulted to a more sophisticated and handled approach to the risk at hand and the incident might have been suppressed, the damage could have been reduced extensively, or it might have never happened to begin with. So, it can be stated that the organisation not only failed to uphold the Principle 7 of ASX, but failed as a company to do right to the society and the men working for it. It was obvious that Ardent Leisure would have to face the legal authorities and suffer consequences for its actions of showing complete disregard for the risk framework of risk management and the importance of identification and correction of risk. It didnt only face competitive disadvantage in the market but the infringement of Provision 7 of ASX for the good corporate governance resulted to its downfall. Heavy losses will be faced by the company caused by certain unwanted risks that added onto the already crippling burden. The shock value the companys goodwill was tremendous as investors would now refuse to purchase its stock or invest on the company in any way. In the non-appearance of a system that would establish proper risk management, the employees will be less accountable and will submit low quality work, leading to a massive decline in productivity. The policy of If not, why not of the Australian Security Exchange allows a company the right to refuse the policies of ASX if, and only if the company has a valid and a logical standpoint on why it wouldnt want to accept them and has policies that would be of better use for the protection of the risk factor. It is the job of the Chief Compliance Officer of the ASX to deal with the companies that refuse to follow its standards of ASX and know it full well and have no answer to the reason why. It would seem that these companies never applied for If not why not or, they agreed to follow ASX principles but broke the rules nevertheless, though the aggrieved is given a chance to go for its defence in the ASX Appeal Tribunal. If in case there is a breach of law, then a penalty of $250000 is extracted, there is also a smaller penalty of $1000000 for the breach of Austra Care rules. In this case, ASX is entitled to issue penalties on the Ardent Leisure for breach of civil laws and disquali fy the directors. It is expected of the directors of an organisation to have act on their duties with absolute supervision and rigour, taking their directorial duties towards the stockholders and the organisation very seriously. It is expected that the director shows his supervision and rigour as any other person with a right mind would do sitting in a director's position, states the Section 180 of the Corporation Act 2001. The breach of this law will lead to civil penalties with respect to the section 1317 of the act, as this section assigns important directorial under the common law. All decisions taken by a person on a directorial stand will always be considered legal, taken in good faith and legitimacy as in the Business Judgement Rule. It is required that all the decisions taken by directors are made rationally with the sole purpose to of welfare and company's overall benefit. It is expected that a reasonable person would take the right actions with regard of the companys best interest. In the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC) v Cassimatis , It was stated that if section 180 of the act was breached then it would be the case of infringement by the part of the director and inconsistent decision making system of the company. It was stated that the directors having less obligations to work under, they have to make sure is to follow the primary obligations that are imposed upon them by the common law and exercise their duties in a consistent fashion as in ASIC v Matiner Corp . It has already been made clear that in this case the said company, Ardent Leisure, breached the principles laid down by ASX in regards to the risk management. It was observed in Matiners case, establishment of a violation of the section 180 of the corporations act 2001, it must be proved that the company that is blamed has made a breach of the ideals stated in the common law by a prudent person. In case of Ardent Leisure, since the director was a prudent person to begin with, the breach of the section 180 of the act, as read previously, it has been said that the person has to be of right mind in order to commit a breach of the law, so, in Ardents case, it is quite natural that the director was quite sane and the decisions made by the company were of little significance relating to the risk that resulted to the disaster, and so, it will be considered and further penalties will be imposed upon the company under section 1317 counting in the losses suffered by the company financially. After facing much hate and criticism after the disastrous incident that led to the unforeseen deaths of many of the companys patrons and also innocent civilians, the CEO of Ardent Leisure Pvt. Ltd., Deborah Thomas gave a resignation from her post. It is a well known fact that the company was known for its primary goal of spreading the entertainment sector across the United States and had gained much fame being one of the leading producers in the industry. It was noticed that the stock prices of the company had had a significant decline of 7.8% post the accident of the Dreamworld. Currently, the company is engaging itself in procedures to control the excess damage caused by the incident. The authorities of the company claim to be working in order to sum up certain important factors and root out the actual cause of this devastating accident with significant help from the Police. The accident caused the company a loss of $49.4 million and has left it in a dire state. The company involved itself into working on the safety and precautionary measures that are to be taken in the coming future and so, the park remained closed for 45 days. The company did the courtesy to rightfully admit to their disregard and utter failure in taking steps and acting with care and rigor within 48 hours of the accident, and also agree to the fact that if measure were taken beforehand, the incident might have been prevented. The company opted for support and professionals to deal with situation at hand, some of them included the ex police officer Mike McKay from Queensland and Deloitte, Graeme Newton, a crisis management expert. The company is now doing its best to insure safety by examining rides and making taking proper measures. The ride that led to the unforeseen disaster, Thunder River Rapid, was shut down, not to be used again. In such events, where the relatives of many are in jeopardy, the principles of the Ten Commandments should be followed. The principles clearly state that in case if a person dies, their family must be contacted in that very moment, though, it was seen that Ardent Leisure had decided to totally ignore such important rules in the first place. Yes, the company did take steps that included private collaboration schemes and introduction of risk management, but it was only after the incident happened. Though, it seems Ardent Leisure is still acting in defense stating that their Robust policies made them one of the most successful entertainment producers that are out there in the open market since 1981.

The second approach is the orientation on the team work when the results of the collective work of individuals are appreciated (Hofstede, Hofstede, Minkov). The first approach is typical for companies in the USA where managers accentuate the work of an individual as a leader of a definite process. The second variant of the work organization is realized in the Japanese companies. The misunderstandings connected with the differences in approaches can result in the ineffective realization of the cooperative projects between the managers of the both companies (Hofstede, Hofstede, Minkov). The Japanese managers concentrate on creating the atmosphere of harmony in the team in order the members of the group could do all their best and provide the highest results. The main principles of the work are understanding, sincerity, and cooperation which are realized because of the proper attention and monitoring without the oppressive control (Hofstede, Hofstede, Minkov). It is not typical for the Japanese company to determine the individualsÃ¢â¬â¢ successes, but pay attention to the teamÃ¢â¬â¢s results. The situation in the USA can be considered as quite opposite. US managers focus on the leaderÃ¢â¬â¢s characteristics of the employees and their ability to work in order to achieve the corporate goals using the most effective methods (Cultural aspects, n.d.).Advertising Looking for essay on business economics?

The Japanese people always focus on the significance of customs and traditions. That is why they also concentrate on the peopleÃ¢â¬â¢s following such customs as entering the room where the tatami is used without footwear, taking business cards with both hands, and the avoidance of the unnecessary physical contacts (Cultural aspects, n.d.). The Japanese people also greet each other with bowing, but today they prefer to use shakehands while interacting with their international guests. It is typical for the Japanese people to express the utter respect toward their business partners, and they also hope for the international partnersÃ¢â¬â¢ respectful attitude to their customs and traditions. Today US business coaches pay more attention to team building as an effective way to achieve the cooperative goals and optimize the problem-solving and decision-making processes. Nevertheless, if the American managers focus on the peer control in the team, the Japanese managers can consider these methods as a kind of pressure. That is why it is possible to accentuate the development of the cooperative atmosphere in the team in the US company with references to the Japanese patterns in the situatio n when the Japanese managers pay attention to the role of the individual, but without focusing on the significance of the leaderÃ¢â¬â¢s positions within the group.

Extra Terrestrial Intelligence VS. Humanity Essays - Free Essays Extra Terrestrial Intelligence VS. Humanity Fatima Zahid 213465976 Michael De Robertis Being the senior staff member of the United Nations I would question the Extra Terrestrial Intelligent through visual communication, symbols along with the use of the English language. The reason for that is, we humans do not know whether the ETI can comprehend the English language or letters in general. Having pictures present would make it easier for them to understand and it makes sense to communicate in that way specially with unfamiliar societies. The question I would ask is, tell us about yourself? To put this question in the form of pictures I would simply use a drawing of their UFO with the symbol of a question mark. According to SETI Institute, ETI can have various reactions and emotional responses to certain terms, so it's important we learn if they are safe. This way, we can figure out if the ETI are dangerous and if they don't have plans to destruct planet Earth and take over humanity. Once we know they're safe to approach, hopefully with the technology we will have in about 30 years could help us track where the signal came from exactly. In terms of any major ramification that takes place on planet Earth due to the discovery of ETI, in my opinion I believe this phenomenon could shake science. Brand new evidence for scientists all around the world, making a long-lasting impact on today's society. Some may think the discovery of ETI may be negative but In my opinion it would leave the human civilization in paranoia as a discovery of a new much more advanced civilization has taken over, so it's important to first learn their motive. METI is a good idea, I am more of an optimistic person I believe if the ETI wanted to destroy us they had the chance to do so a long time ago as we have had radio transmissions around for many years. In my opinion I believe being in contact with ETI could be great with their advanced technology maybe they could help us find the cure for cancer!

Short paper - Assignment Example jugation of indigent and stigmatized women is connected to gender and class correlations, that of Third World women is connected in addition to race interrelations and frequently imperialism (Ramusack 30-35). During the 19th century, as millions of Britons left for the New Worlds, grate and home were actually shifted from the centre of the empire to its very periphery. In the film Out of Africa, it explores how such demographic changes affected the means in which the British citizens both promoted and destabilized the idea of the domestic woman (Antoinette 60-97). Though the ideal of the domestic woman was surely affected by these mass shifts, in the film the explanation of her becomes constricted and unfeasible, for she must not only be a goddess, but she must in addition be English hero is ordained for a happy ending, she either get married to an English angel-wife who must be brought with him to the New World. This patter appears to support the allegedly corresponding ideologies of domesticity and imperialism. London, according to imperialist doctrine, was the virtuous epicenter of a domineering empire whose mission was to civilize the rest of the world. In the film, Karen Blixen is the angel who offers the ethical foundation of a consecrated to such scheme than English soil. Nevertheless the films reveal much ambivalence towards this domestic idyllic. She is often seen as the colonial and indigenous woman; they are also seen as foils for the English angels since there were much more interesting and gorgeous. But the domestic and imperiali st principles themselves discarded. Coming to Kenya, Karen Blixen shows that female expatriates were dreadfully required in the colonies; consequently, a womanÃ¢â¬â¢s responsibility was to leave England. Better still her womanly responsibility told her to stay a pure goddess beside an English hearthside. The domestic dogma, then since of its firm alliance with nationalism, appears to have been more in dispute with
