Informative Speech on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Purpose of the Speech: To inform the audience about what ADHD is (and is not), its symptoms, the different forms of ADHD, how it is diagnosed, and the treatment of ADHD.
ADHD is a serious condition, but it doesn't mean that it has to ruin person's life.
Bouncing off the walls!
Anyone with a child has said this phrase, as the child runs around, refusing to pay attention or listen. And everyone has had a day or two when they just can't focus. But for someone with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, otherwise known as ADHD, every day is like that. It's like the difference between having the blues and major depression. Everyone feels sad, but not everyone is incapacitated by depression. Everyone has a day or two when they just can't get it together. But that doesn't…

Specific purpose: To inform listeners how energy-saving devices help the planet and consumers' ability to save money.
Central idea: Saving energy can help you -- and the planet
Informative speech: How to save energy
Everyone wants to save money. Yet many of us are wasting money without even realizing it. When you leave the room, do you get any additional pleasure from leaving the light on while you are gone? Do you enjoy having your computer running in your absence? Probably these decisions make little difference to you, and you would prefer to save money rather than needlessly waste power. Bad habits and thoughtlessness are often the source of how and why we waste energy. This speech will provide you with suggestions about how to save energy, demonstrate how it is financially advantageous to 'go green,' and suggest future lifestyle changes to save energy.…

To inform the audience about the two sides of the debate on the death penalty, regarding its justice and its deterrent effect.
The death penalty is one of the most frequently-debated topics in American criminal justice, and it is important to understand both sides of the death penalty debate.
Organizational Pattern: Topical
Attention getter- America is the only major industrialized democracy that still has the death penalty. "Of the 197 countries in the world, 135 (69%) have abolished the death penalty in law or practice and only 62 (31%) continue to use capital punishment" (Support for the death penalty continues to decline, 2013, Arkansas Abolish).

Today's documentaries have the qualities of feature films -- cinematography, suspense, captivating personalities, funny parts, and in some cases, special effects. If you want to learn about a topic, but don't have time to read a book on the issue, a documentary can be a valuable resource, as within one to two hours you can gain almost as much understanding as you would from reading a book. In addition, documentaries are wonderful ways to understand topics that are more audio-visual in nature, such as how animals move, mate, hunt, and act. While you could read about a lion pouncing on it's pray in a book, even looking at pictures of the lion, a documentary lets you see the anticipation in the lion's eye and the frightening majesty of the lion as it growls and pounces on its prey. If you can't be with a lion as it pounces, a documentary…

Although a persuasive speech may include emotional words, imagery, and other tools that are not strictly logical, for the speech to be effective (at least, effective in persuading persons other than persons who are already converted to the speaker's point-of-view), the speech must be based on some sound rationale. The Hope uses evidence from the Bible, archeological evidence, and also logical and persuasive reasoning to convince the listener about the Bible's truth.
The Hope also strives to answer many common questions that even uncertain believers articulate regarding their faith, such as why God allows suffering to occur and why terrible things such as cancer are allowed to exist. The film suggests that although the world may fundamentally be fallen, God still offers hope and the possibility of redemption. The end of the Hope stresses the need for the listener to go to church and fully participate in a faith community…
Again, the worries may be legitimate, but the level of preoccupation is often obsessive and inhibits the quality of the person's life. Often, difficulty sleeping, a racing pulse, hot flashes, and nausea accompany the sufferer's vague sense of impending doom.

However for economic and political causes the prime minister along with his supporters could not disregard these commercial distress indications. In addition ockingham and his chief financial minister, Edmund Burke and William Dowdeswell were assured that colonial reactions to the Stamp Act accounted for the recent turn down in British trade to North America and during 1765 British sells to America had descended by 15%. These identical men were also sure they might capitalize on the political prospect the stamp tax crisis obtainable. One vision involved cultivating extra parliamentary hold up in the chaotic biased landscape of the 1760s so Burke as well as other ockingham Whigs were fimilar with the fact that any government or opposition was crippled if it could acquire no kind of sustain out of doors.

Technology elated Decision Making in Organizations:
The University of Cincinnati as an Institutional Example
The implementation of any new technology within an organization forces change on many levels. While technological changes are made within an organization to enhance that organization's core work functions, related policies, administrative functions, and these changes essentially trickle-down in a way that leaves the entire organization affected in the end. For any organization, new technology means new training, as any new technological additions cannot perform to their full advantage without the proficient skill-set of that organization's members. In researching the IT governance structure, it is most beneficial to cite a distinct example of an organization in which this structure is consistently used, evaluated and adjusted. In viewing the IT governance structure present in the University of Cincinnati, and in viewing the accompanying research present on the topic, one can more easily pinpoint…

Aristotle's Poetics is the most informative piece of work on the nature of art. It is in the Poetics that Aristotle defines the fundamental nature of tragedy. For Aristotle, what defines tragedy (and all art, in general) is in the way that it is imitation (Golden 142). Every form of art (qua imitation) can be compared in terms of the artistic means, object, and manner used in their creation. In the tragic form, imitation is made of a very controlled process where the different elements of action and character lead the spectator to have a certain insight into the meaning of what it is to be human (142). In trying to understand Aristotle's view on art, it is important to understand that it is "based on an equation of poetry with the process of representation, and not on any accidental quality such as meter" (142). Poetry comes thus from…

oeing is considered the leader in commercial aircraft, military aircraft and missiles and space markets. As well as the design, development and manufacture of aircraft and space equipment, oeing also has divisions managing the support of these activities and other activities that extend to real estate services, financial services and travel agency services.
oeing has a well-developed graduate program and the benefits for employees are numerous. While financial information up to 2000 suggests that oeing is growing, it should also be noted that since September 11, a downturn in the commercial airline industry has impacted oeing. As a result of this 30,000 jobs are expected to be lost. To counter this oeing expects growth in the defense area and oeing is also moving to adapt to the changed environment, such as by focusing on the renewed interest in commercial flight safety.

Green is basically an ideology which aims at creating an ecologically sustainable society; one that has deep roots in environmentalism or has inclination towards environmental conservation and improvement hence as many people as possible should urgently embrace green revolution since it does not necessary mean that one should change their life.
When we talk of going green we should have an idea of how this is achieved. There are various things that people are doing to make the world go green. Some of these things are recycling, reusing and reducing .in a consumerist society it is difficult for a day to go buy without one purchasing a…

Although the consensus amongst economists is that the United States has extricated itself from the worst of the recession of 2008, the impact of the economic crisis is still palpable amongst many demographics within the United States. Recent college graduates are amongst the hardest-hit. Given the sluggish labor market, many new college graduates are struggling for work, while the previous generation was able to find jobs with much greater ease. These workers are burdened by high…

Conducting an informative safety meeting can seem like a large task. The purpose of a safety meeting is to effectively convey safety information to employees. Effective communication of safety guidelines and rules can help to reduce the chance of injury on the jobsite. Safety meetings are most often conducted by supervisors, the foreman, or even the company owner. Like everything else, if you follow a plan it can be done with minimal stress. Here is a detailed, step-by-step plan for conducting an informative safety meeting, using a construction company as an example.
The first step in the process is choosing a place to hold the safety meeting. You will want to choose a comfortable area, so the employees can focus their full attention on you and the information you are conveying. It can be hard to focus if an area is too hot or cold, or if there…

The author of "The Art of Cookery" made a similarly wise decision by using a time order as this reflects the style of the piece.

Marketing Mix for Panera Bread Company
Advertising refers to any form of non-personal communication meant to persuade, inform, and remind customers to buy a product (Shapiro, 1984). Panera Bread Company has adopted the informative approach as a way of winning and retaining customers. In this strategy, the aim is to let the clients get to know the features of the products being offered. These features include the price, quantities sold, the quality as well as how the products are consumed. Some information to the effect of the ingredients used to bake the breads as well as how the bread needs to be consumed (Peter and Donnelly 2013).

female of a dog or other animals of the dog family e.g. fox a gray hound *****. However, when used as slang it implies derogatory characteristics of a woman especially a cruel and unpleasant one. In terms of relating it to something or somebody it implies 'making bad or critical comments about someone/something or complaining' inclusive of 'unpleasant situation etc.'.
Thus, its literal meaning is quite different from its common usage. How the literal meaning fell devoid giving birth to a totally new, informal and derogatory meaning is questionable. Although the formal version of the term is still used to imply the gender difference a male dog and a female dog, the informal term still prevails. There lies no apparent connection between the two meanings and it is not easy to comprehend how the two evolved simultaneously for the same word. Attitudes play a major role, the term '*****' is…

For example, women are taught to collaborate, and affirm rather than subvert other people in conversation. But women can recognize that the need to speak up when provoked, if they are conscious of their conversational tendency. A woman whose idea is stolen by a male co-worker in an aggressive, male-dominated firm that praises competition cannot simply complain to her boss after the meeting where the co-worker claimed 'their' idea was 'his,' or assume that the truth will eventually be revealed about the theft. Likewise, a male who wishes to maintain a good relationship with a female boss can benefit from engaging in conversation that is not stereotypically 'facts' related (like baseball scores) but is more relational, such as inquiring about how the boss' day is going (Simon & Pedersen, 2005).

Life and Death: The Life Support Dilemma by Kenneth E. Schemmer M.D
Kenneth Schemmer in his thorough, thought provoking book brings to life the controversial subject of the life support issue. For years, many all over the country have pondered, "What if a person were in some kind of an accident and the physicians told them that they were not going to make it?" And all that he or she could do is just lie there in extreme pain waiting for their life to the end. Or even worse case scenario what if they happened to end up completely brain dead? These debated questions are taken on by Dr. Schemmer in making his point that life support decisions may not necessarily be the decision of the family, the doctor or the patient but by a higher being that gives life and takes life. Schemmer uses these controversial questions in his…

washing conducted by Green and lemen (2005). Literature on the subject, as they show, brings down a lot about the importance of washing hands before food preparation. Epidemiological research indicates that a lot of diseases break out in restaurants where inadequate hand-washing has been performed, and that many people acquire disease from eating meals outside the home. Over and again, reviews present information about the importance of washing hands before preparing food, but as the authors demonstrate, minimal to none investigation has actually been conducted on current practices of hand-washing. It would be informative, therefore, to investigate current practices and factors affecting these practices in order to see how, and in which ways, we can improve hand-washing practices.

Vascular Leg Disorders in Adults with Substance Abuse Issues
Vascular leg disorders, namely chronic venous disorders (CVD) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD), are frequent yet generally unacknowledged complications of injection drug use (IDU) (Pieper, Templin, Kirsner, & Birk, 2010). One study provides a quantitative analysis of the relationship between PAD and exercise habits in adults that engage in IDU. In the sample that was used, overall activity was relatively low and most participants walked less than half a mile a day (Pieper, Templin, Kirsner, & Birk, 2010). There is a significant inverse between PAD and CVD and being active and engaging in some form of walking or exercise. This study is quantitate in nature and provides that statistical findings of the experiment with a large sample.

In majority of the cases people lose the fight at the very mention of the disease, seemingly doomed to the inevitable, engulfed by an all-consuming fear.

The author certainly communicates effectively, and is not afraid to share her personal beliefs. However, her beliefs seem to be a major part of her argument. I have no argument that spirituality can be extremely important to the mental health of many people, but I also think for some it can be an impediment. In fact, it can be so overwhelming and all encompassing that it actually adds to mental instability and lack of awareness of the real world. This may come under the form of religious zealousness, but she does not address this in her article, except in the form of cults, and they are not the only religions that can create zealots that essentially give up reality for their notion of religious values and their importance. In fact, while this is a scholarly essay with many sources, for the most part, it seems to champion the author's own…

His solution is really an anti-solution. He urges people to have only one boy, but his implied message is clear - big brothers make stronger, better, younger brothers.
Close to the end of the essay the author writes, "If you think my case is an isolated one, you are gravely mistaken. There are probably millions of young men around the world who would not be the same men they are today had it not been for their older brothers" (Krull). I had to laugh, because his descriptions of how older brothers treat their siblings is so right on. They are bigger, and they will not let younger brothers forget it. I have gone through many similar circumstances with my older brother, and sometimes it makes me angry, because just like in this essay, my parents seem clueless about his actions. However, the essay made me laugh, because the author is…

Teachers at all levels need to be able to expand their understanding and use through professional development and grant opportunities, as well as be given time to attend trainings and conferences. They need to be encouraged to assume a leadership role and be asked to share their ideas about instruction with their peers at educational meetings and state conferences. When teachers have a positive attitude and believe technology is useful, are personally interested, and offered support and training, they get excited and, as a result, motivate their students, and use technology successfully to promote learning and achievement.
Active involvement in technology-supported innovations was a source of inspiration and professional renewal for these teachers. This points to the need for active training within all the school systems on a continual basis.
Similarly, Fleming, Motamedi, and May (2007) found that pre-service teachers who had experience with technology in college would more likely…

I get excited about ideas I have for new products and services, and I'm motivated for them to succeed on a personal level. Of course, the income helps motivate me too! I really feel pressure to succeed so I can take good care of my family, so I think that's the extrinsic motivator for me, making sure my family is well taken care of and secure. Otherwise, it's all intrinsic for me, I love the feeling I get when I succeed at something, and it works. it's very satisfying and it makes me feel in control and in charge of my own life and destiny.
ME: I think I'm intrinsically motivated, as well. I find I do much better on assignments that interest me, (like this one), than on assignments that I don't feel any connection with. I think that's the same in many areas of my life. Outward motivation,…
The viewpoints offered, the statistics presented, and the arguments suggested cover the full spectrum of possible approaches on this issue and, not unexpectedly, some of the articles do a better job of not only presenting the issues but also in remaining even handed in presenting their information. The articles that were cited herein, except for the New York Times' article, were chosen for a limited purpose and not for the overall perspective that they offered. Nevertheless, all the articles did a remarkable job of attempting to present both sides of not only the overall issue but also the limited issue that the article addressed. In light of the emotional nature of the subject, writing an article in such a detached, professional manner is not always easy.

Social Cognitive, Behavioral Drinking
Social Cognitive/behavioralist Drinking
Drinking behavior provides informative demonstration of how social cognitive and behavioralist theories provide complementary rather than competing explanations of human agency. Bandura (1999) casts social cognitive theory against various determinist and materialist theories on the assertion humans are "sentient agents of experiences rather than simply undergoers of experiences" because people explore, manipulate and influence the environment they discover (p. 4). This contrasts against "automaticity," habit, "tendencies to repeat responses given a stable supporting context" (Oullette and Wood, 1998, p. 55). Oullette & Wood (1998) compare habit learning to skill development, where practice can lead to "nonvolitional, frequent, and consistent experiences in a given context" but new situations require deliberation (p. 55). Wood and Neal (2007) largely reiterate this summary as repeated learned behavior (843). The present inquiry is particularly interested in how and why particular behaviors become repeated after negative consequences have been…

Photojournalism was a defining feature of the Vietnam War era, bringing informative but usually horrific images from the front lines to the pages of print and the tubes of television. Therefore, photojournalism was instrumental in shaping the American public sentiment towards the war. Imagery laden with bloodshed and brutality impacted the minds and hearts of Americans, giving fuel to the already fiery anti-war, counterculture movement. Moreover, the Vietnam War was the first televised war. Not only were powerful black and white still shots available, as they were throughout the Korean War. During the height Vietnam War in 1968, about 60% of Americans watched the wartime coverage on television (Kennedy, 2008). Photojournalism during the war in Vietnam altered pubic perception of the war and related social and political consciousness; it also affected the profession of photography, photojournalism, and the nature of the Fifth Estate in general. Journalists and the public were…

Crime in the United States
Crime in the United States took a sharp uptick starting in the middle of the 20th century but has actually leveled off since then, at least for the most part. However, even with the moderation in crime, especially in larger cities that have traditionally been problematic, crime in some cities is still alarmingly high and there are some cultural and social trends that are becoming more and more prevalent and, by extension, more commonly talked about as well. This essay will explore a couple of the more notorious examples of this in motion.
One study conducted for this research noted that predicting the crime rate at any given point in time can be exceedingly maddening to predict because of how a single happenstance or course of events can have a massive effect on the overall rates. The study uses…

Weapons of Mass Destruction and the Next Terror: Assessment of How a Significant Terrorist WMD Attack Might e Conducted by a Non-State Actors Perpetrator and Why They Can't Stage an Attack
Weapons of Mass Destructions (WMD) have considerable effect to the economies of both developed and developing countries. In the modern world, most terror groups have resolved to use Weapons of Mass Destruction to harm their enemies. The entire syndicate comprises state actors and the terror group, which intends to destroy the target country. The state actors have direct links or channels of communication with such attackers, foreign allies, and several residential alliances with almost similar connections to the terror groups. Most of the terror groups lack essential materials that would aid in the making of some of the most dangerous weapons such as nuclear bombs. The various forms of attack involved when using lethal weapons include dispersion, dissemination, and…

Poor ebsite -- Informal Memo
Purpose / Opening Statement
It is difficult to know how many new websites are being put up every day but clearly the numbers are enormous. Meanwhile, the purpose of this paper is to locate a spiritually-related website that needs changes; also, the purpose is to evaluate it. Hence, in advance it should be clear that when looking for a spiritually-related website on the Internet, a user wants a site that clearly spells out what it offers, is user-friendly as far as links and has an obvious informative purpose with credibility. In that regard, the website called "Constellation Seven" is among the most cluttered, confusing, prosaic and artistically disastrous to be found on the eb. This paper discusses this terrible website and suggests how it could be made better and more usable.

Businesses including IT firms are flooded with IT tools like microcomputers, photocopiers, digital surveillance tools, internet, among others. There is mounting evidence from a review of literature that in the IT work environment, especially the IT industry, present hazardous working environments to workers. Workers in these environments also undergo stress from the lack of knowledge of the tools, the lack of, or reduced human contact. Information technology tools also create electrical and fire hazards, which threaten the safety of employees. Employees also suffer from health issues like bleary-eyes from bright screens and monitors of IT tools. The research proves the need for increased safety and health measures in these environments. In the end, the research creates knowledge in the business community of the importance of increased…

The proper procedure to design a website involves planning, innovation, and proper execution. The purpose of the website, along with its actual content, when melded together correctly, offers the visitor information and flexibility.
The first step a website innovator undertakes is to determine the audience of the website. Secondly, the innovator determines what the purpose of the website is. Although both of these steps seem simple, it is a crucial step. These two items need determined and defined clearly before further planning.
The goal of the site is the next determination. The website innovator decides what the goal of the site is. Website builders design sites to disseminate information. Other sites implement a design to sell or persuade, while others collect information from the visitor. Many times, the sites have multiple purposes, such as provide information and sell a product or service during the visit. (An example of…

I have experience as a program integrator and deployment manager, a deployment readiness officer and logistical coordinator, a central issue manager, and a deployment mission manger.

virtual autopsy table and video depicting an autopsy was very informative in many different ways. The practical knowledge expressed in these two examples was complete and simplified for the lay person. The knowledge was enhanced by the visual aspects of both examples. The subject of autopsy is one that is extremely amplified by the use of visual examples and the inclusion of them in this instruction, has provided a new appreciation and respect for the practice and its necessity within our society's criminal justice system.
I learned that it takes a unique and special professional to perform these tasks on a day-to-day basis, and a certain personality type is also needed as well. One of the most glaring ideas that resonated with me on this subject was the precision that autopsy must have in investigating the causes of death.

In Germany, the gamba was used primarily in pieces of sacred music, such as those written by Heinrich Schultz.
It is important to note that, although the courts, royalty, and upper class of Europe were extremely fond of the gamba, there were also many soloists who performed on a smaller scale. Particularly in England, the gamba was an instrument in many private homes, where amateur players performed for their own enjoyment, and for their friends and families. Since the instrument was simple to play on a small scale, it was popular for many amateur players and with the treatise mentioned above, nearly anyone had access to writings aimed at improving one's skill.
The gamba was even a tool for courtship in the Renaissance, played by young men in the presence of women as part of the process to gain her respect and adoration. In the manual for courtship "Il Libro…

Advocacy: Three Approaches
Advocacy is often defined as a three-step or three-approach process: informing, influencing, and stimulating policy changes (“An Overview,” 2018). To use a current example, that of gun control, to establish credibility for the advocate, using hard data (such as the number of individuals killed by guns in the United States versus other nations with more stringent controls) can be a powerful first step to arouse interest in the subject. Informing can also be done in a more emotional fashion, however, such as a survivor of a school shooting given a persuasive appeal from personal experience.
Informative strategies are generally designed to win over neutral observers or potentially unfriendly observers. Information can be spread via social media or even personally on a one-to-one basis. An informative approach can be used by anyone in the role of advocate, spanning from individuals directly affected by the change (such as gun…
Ketch asserts that it is through this natural process that students comprehend and become critical thinkers. Likewise, Pinnell seems to share similar beliefs about natural processes and educators allowing children to explore these processes. The author asserts that
"Concentration on skills draws attention away from the normal and self-reinforcing uses of language, and instruction often unnecessarily makes a natural everyday activity seem foreign and stilted. Language studies suggest that efforts should be redirected to take advantage of nature's most powerful incentive for developing facility with language -- the child's intention to communicate meaning to other people, the use of language for a variety of purposes (Pinnell."
Both of these assertions support the importance of oral language. Ketch encourages this by explaining the importance on conversation is developing critical thinking skills. Likewise Pinnell enforces this by explaining the importance of language use among children.

Radio Advertising Bureau is a sight mostly devoted to those in radio advertising seeking general information, training tools, and market sales data concerning the radio industry. The site is somewhat informative and should be considered an effective vehicle for radio advertising.
The articles on the home page advance the interests of radio as well as most of the links in the side columns. The "Find It Fast" pull-down menu of different types of advertising markets is extremely informative as it offers statistics and other useful data concerning specific industries.
In addition, the Media section which offers ideas for advertising and success stories, is informative as well as the Co-op section which offers helpful tools such as newsletters and a "training corner."
Perhaps the most interesting feature about the site is the variety of links offered to those interested in the radio advertising, such as the RAEL site and the EDI…

Alreck, P., & Settle, R. (2011). The survey research handbook (3rd ed.) New York, NY: McGraw Hill.
Alreck's book offers an effective method in research. The book is a very powerful way to acquire information focused directly and immediately on the decisions and problems of today and those of the future. In addition, the handbook provides the methods and guidelines for conducting practical, economical surveys from start to finish.
This resource is particularly valuable for its practicality. In this information age, data is an important asset for today's organizations. In many instances to better assess risk data is needed. Particularly for system institutions such as banks risk is often more important than financial, technical, or human resources. Survey research is a very powerful way to acquire information focused directly and immediately on the decisions and problems of today and those that might occur in the future.

Wayne, A.J. (2012). An Empirical Study of Privacy Risk Assessment Methodologies in Cloud Computing Environments. Ann Arbor: ProQuest.
This literature includes a vast array of dissertations and theses published from graduate schools and universities from around the world. These studies manly relate to differing aspects of cloud computing. The text has a particular emphasis on privacy related issues that are prevalent throughout the world. The text also provides details on properly assessing the risks embedded within a cloud computing network.
The text is informative; however it does prove difficult to read without proper background knowledge. In addition, the text is grounded in theory with little real world application. Even with these shortcomings the book does provide interesting suggestions on how to properly access risk within an organization.
The selected candidate, Lyndon B. Johnson's ad can be found here: http://www.livingroomcandidate.org/commercials/1964. The ad chosen is the most famous of his ads, "Peace Little Girl (Daisy)."Although the ad is not informative in the traditional sense, the lack of explanatory words adds a powerful yet simple cinematic device that resonated with people making this ad value-laden. By using an innocent child juxtaposed with a bomb explosion, the fear generated by these images provided enough of a reaction that made the ad effective. It is because the overall message was fear, fear of what would happen should people not vote for Johnson. The male narrator at the end told the audience vote for Johnson and this direct action showed effectively that the audience really only has one choice in the campaign, to vote for Johnson.
There's no common link between this ad and the others below. However, the ad did influence me…

A. CPA as a highly specialized certificate…
The survey found that entry level accountants needed to be better equipped to use their skills in business situations, to determine accounting issues and audit business risks, and to effectively communicate with management. As a result of this survey and other debates the CPA exam was changed in 2004 to make it more conducive to the situations that candidates would face in real life business environments.
Although the newer tests are designed to certified those with the best skills, it also reduces the number of people who will pass the test. For this reason some firms are offering incentives to those candidates that are able to pass the test. The article explains that because the certification is essential to progress and career development in accounting as well as the profitability of a business providing an incentive for passing the exam is beneficial to exam takers and businesses (Charron & Lowe 2009).
Overall CPAs are simply in demand in a manner that MBAs are not. The research indicates that CPAs have more specialized skills that are needed and sought after.. The demand for these skills are both national and global. Even though there are some benefits associated with having an MBA, these benefits are outweigh by the advantages associated with a CPA and therefore accountants with a CPA license rather than an MBA degree have a better chance of getting hired, advance and succeed in the public accounting field.
