Defending the Criticism of Professor Brown
With the exceptional growth of Web 2.0 technologies (O'eilly, 2005) and the ubiquity of access to the Internet which is fostering social networking applications' growth (Bernoff, Li, 2008), companies are no longer necessarily in control of their brands, their customers are. The need for being able to create collaborative relationships with customers is critical for the growth of companies long-term. The complexity and depth of these relationships surpasses and in many cases make obsolete the concepts of Kotler (1986). The stage-based approach to quantifying market conditions fro a macroeconomic standpoint and then creating customer profile analysis neglects the rapidly changing voice of the customer (Brandt, 2008) and also neglects the groundswell effect of market conditions over time, enabled by social networking applications (Bernoff, Li, 2008).
Longitudinal analyses of innovation also shows that it is not in the investing in massive &D that ensures a…… [Read More]
" (Smart & Hamm, p. 489) This will be a matter of considerable importance as we proceed with the present research.
Based on the various cogent arguments posed in favor of tenure, this research proceeds with the expectation that professorial perspectives will draw a direct correlation between the protection of this institution and the continuity of organizational effectiveness. According to Fishman (2000), "tenure protects the faculty member in three direct ways: 1) it safeguards academic freedom. . .; 2) it ensures fair procedures when one is threatened with dismissal; and 3) building upon the second, it provides security of employment." (Fishman, p. 4)
These arguments are sufficiently compelling to giving foundation to the purpose of the research endeavor. This is to provide an objective, professor-driven discussion on tenure with an expectation that this will produce an endorsement of the institution. The arguments provided by Fishman serves to reinforce…… [Read More]
For that reason, the infancy: trust vs. mistrust (birth to eighteen months), will not be applied. There is not enough information provided during that time period to be able to critically analyze Will's development. Industry vs. Inferiority (ages 6-11), Identity vs. Role Confusion (ages 12-18), and Intimacy vs. Isolation (ages 19-40), however, is applicable. The fourth stage, school age: industry vs. inferiority (six to eleven years) is the age in which the child begins school and while their social world expands (Salkind, N.J., 2005). During this stage, children are able to interact with people outside of their nuclear family and begin to show skills that include playing, cognition, working in groups, and emotional expression (Berzoff, J., 2011). Will appears to be very confident in himself and does not appear to have a problem speaking in front of groups, regarding philosophy, but is still unable to reach full potential. This supports…… [Read More]
Professor Adams assertions certainly deserve further consideration and restitution if found to be true. Her contention that she was paid less than other associate professors specifically should be examined and determined whether or not she was indeed receiving pay which was less than males who were also on their three-year probationary period (Pregnant). If her claims of less pay are based upon comparisons with professors who have already passed their probationary period, then it is not a valid comparison and adds to the case against her. However, in the rest of the claims she makes it does not appear that she has a valid argument for a discrimination suit. Part of the agreement she made was to publish multiple articles and to participate in committees. Professor Adams was only able to publish twice which was less than her colleagues. In addition, the department states that she did not fulfill her…… [Read More]
She listens well to others, and is quick to adapt to any social or academic situation with a high level of maturity. These people skills are what make Josephine such a team player.
Josephine is also extremely culturally sensitive. Due to her multicultural background skills, Josephine is able to combine sensitivity and respect when dealing with many difficult multicultural issues. She often offers alternative perspectives and solutions in a multicultural context. This, along with her care and compassion, makes other students feel worthwhile and respected, regardless of the issue at hand.
Academically, Josephine is outstanding. She is highly intelligent, particularly in the area of research. Her sophisticated researching style and analytical skills have combined to produce some of the best research papers I have seen in my entire teaching career. She is capable of conducting the most complicated research in a way that yields precise, well-studied results.
Josephine is also…… [Read More]
Meanwhile the country in alleged violation may continue their activity until a final decision is made. It may require the cooperation of several countries willing to step in and force change (asu 2001). The ILO regime is a concerted effort to enforce through moral rights of humanity with input from the core principles but no limitation to only those principles (Langille 2005).
Lastly Alston is concerned that the Declaration's goal is to give major corporations, and global financial institutions monopolistic authority or some power over asserting the core principles while leaving the remaining principles of concern to less powerful conventions having little voice or impact (Langille 2005).
Alston's thesis is based solely on a brand of international law that is not realistic but formalistic (Langille 2005). It is blindly aligned with the ILO regime which has not dealt with the hard issues. Those being bringing the legal, politics, economic and…… [Read More]
Professor Mead, whatever makes up consciousness has social origin. Inner consciousness has been organized socially through importation of the outer world. Other people's consciousness proceeds self-consciousness. The 'I' is not possible to immediately appear within consciousness and there is no way it can be conscious of itself. Appearing self as 'I', forms the memory image of the self that acts towards himself and is the similar self that acts towards the rest of selves.
hatever stuff that ends up forming 'me' is the induced experience by such action of the 'I'. The consciousness of 'me' is of the similar character like the one which comes up from the other's action upon him, G.H. Mead, (1912). Meaning that as the individual come to find himself act with reference to himself when acting towards others, he becomes a subject to himself instead of object, and just when he is affected by social…… [Read More]
professor H.E. Luccock once wrote, "No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it" (1947). Similarly the Laboratory esponse Network (LN) is a collaborative effort that is more than the sum of its parts. It was established by the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 1999 with the objective of ensuring an effective laboratory response to bioterrorism. This goal would be achieved through education and by helping to improve the nation's public health laboratory infrastructure, which had limited ability to respond to bioterrorism. This original mission has transformed into the job of maintaining an integrated network of state and local public health, federal, military and international laboratories with the purpose of responding effectively to any biological/chemical terrorist threat, as well as to other public health emergencies such as widespread disease outbreaks. The LN is a valuable actor…… [Read More]
They became angry when Professor Toom's tests included mathematical equations that were not exactly as those they had done in class. They all wanted good grades. That was the number-one priority. They would rather get all a's and learn nothing than get B's and C's and actually learn something new.
This has completely confused him. He thought that American would be different. He realized, however, that none of the students wanted to think. Sadly, he also realized that Russia may have not won the space race, but either did the United States. Education in both of these countries was the same -- students were only concerned about the outcome.
He said to his students: "Suppose you fly in a plane. What is more important for you: the pilot's real competence or his papers that certify he is competent? Or suppose you get sick and need medical treatment. What is more…… [Read More]
Denise Jackson v. Professor Ronnie Smith
Denise Jackson, a student at our school, recently filed a complaint with this committee regarding her experience in a course taken with Professor Ronnie Smith in the English Department. According to Ms. Jackson, she appeared on the day of the final examination prepared to take the test. However, when Ms. Jackson at the appropriate testing site at the time the exam was supposed to be administered, there was no one in the classroom.
Ms. Jackson then explained that she learned from another student from this class that the issue had been put to a vote in class, and that the class had approved the change in time. She also learned from this student that Professor Smith had printed out a notice that informed students of the time change. This notice had been distributed to class members two weeks prior to the exam, according…… [Read More]

A Positive Man: andy Pausch and the Last Lecture
andy Pausch's "Last Lecture" is a great example of the power of communication. It is simply a college professor's speech -- albeit one with great gravitas, as the deliverer is suffering from a terminal illness -- but it has made a worldwide impact due to the frank, humorous, and inspirational story it tells. Pausch's wisdom reverberates in the mind of the viewer long after watching. In delivering this last lecture, he manages to educate his audience about a myriad of topics, not the least of which is the human condition.
One of the most revelatory ideas in Pausch's speech is the notion of the "head fake;" Pausch…… [Read More]

In addition to a description and a general assessment of the book, the paper includes fundamental analysis and interpretation of the literary work.
Positions such as how this novel describes Charlotte ronte's personal feelings of passion, love and uncertainty are revealed throughout the material.
The Professor" is a novel written by Charlotte ronte and published in 1857, a few years after her death. As ronte's first novel, publishers rejected the book. It was available in print only after she died.
The story is based on ronte's experiences as a student in russels in the 1840s.
The tale is narrated by a male character by the name of William Crimsworth. Crimsworth is an orphaned, yet educated man who becomes a teacher at a girls' school in elgium.

Further, contrary to popular belief, academic freedom is not a legal concept. The U.S. Supreme Court does not convey academic freedom full constitutional status; professors are fully responsible for the maintenance of the professional standards and expectations of their disciplines and institutions (Poch, 1994). A professor's contract can grant academic freedom, but when violated, there's a breach of contract issue rather than a freedom issue (Fish, 2008).
Given the limitations of work duties, responsibility, and legal rights, professors can't simply do as they choose. Universities can and should hold them accountable for executing the job in a way that is consistent with a job description and professional responsibilities. If professors don't do this, they don't have a legal case unless there's a work contract issue.

These "worlds" are not definitive however but suggestive of how women in particular view themselves. The "worlds" can be the cause of racial, or cultural, or professional, or mere idiosyncratic in nature. Nonetheless, they are the primary structures we as humans are found in socially and intrapersonally. And since this helps shape values and personal esteem, it is important to try and understand other "worlds." For one, understanding other "worlds" helps break down cultural and racial barriers built up by isolation and an "outsider" mentality.
Unfortunately, in these "worlds" very little interaction is typically engaged. And not just that, but when "worlds" are developed based on an inferiority stemming from racial divides-in this case that of Lugones' family in an Anglo-centric society-then poor loving relations are established. So, Lugones finds that in order to reaffirm loving relationships where arrogant perceptions prevail, first, one must employ "world"-traveling. This is an exercise…… [Read More]
strong letter recommendation recommend a language professor seeking tenure promotion. In letter stress
It would be extremely difficult for me to fathom a better foreign language professor than Mrs. Groschupf (CHANGE THE NAME). Her presence, knowledge, enthusiasm, and interest in her students -- both individually and collectively -- made her French courses a pleasure to take, and one of my fondest memories of my graduate experience thus far. There are certain personalities which dominate a time period in one's life, which fuse a series of moments together and enrich one's life in the process. I unequivocally assert that Mrs. Groschupf is one such personality, and that her approach towards the subject matter -- genuine, personable, approachable -- has benefitted not only me but also most every other student who took her course last semester.
What I enjoyed most about Mrs. Groschupf's teaching methodology is the fact that she actually made…… [Read More]
Soft Skills Necessary for a College Professor's Job
Soft skills are often called intangible skills, or skills that do not directly relate to the candidate's ability to perform the technical capacities of the job, but are still important in terms of his or her success. Some general soft skills might include a strong work ethic, a positive attitude, and the ability to multitask (Lorenz 2009). A college professor must be knowledgeable about his or her subject matter, of course and have obtained a graduate degree. But soft skills like being a strong communicator, having a caring attitude towards his or her students, and a passion for knowledge are also required. The ability to work well with others is also likely to be a bonus, because professors must participate in faculty meetings. However, professors must also be able to work independently, given that a large proportion of their time is spent…… [Read More]
Teaching at the university level and at the grade school level can be vastly different. Institutional differences account for the largest part of the disparities between these ostensibly similar careers, but methodological differences also exist. Teaching is considered the primary focus of the grade school teacher's career, whereas university professors are often academic scholars rather than educators and teaching for such people is far less important than academic research.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in four Americans are enrolled in educational institutions. Education is the largest industry in the country, accounting for nearly 12 million jobs. Most of these people teach at the grade school level. Teaching is considered a trade rather than a profession: teachers are usually unionized. Teaching positions constitute almost half of all educational services jobs and require at least a bachelor's degree. Most school districts give their employees incentives to pursue further education;…… [Read More]
My attitude has changed resulting from the information I learned about business communications quite dramatically. Business communication in my opinion was always something that was important to people working as managers or administrators, but I never fully understood how critical business communication is to all people regardless of the field they work in. The components of business communication most important to my field include learning how to translate one's thoughts into oral and written communication in multiple forms.
Nurses have to document all interactions, whether with patients or with other healthcare professional (Riley, 2000). hile many are provided with charts they can use to fill in information, it is also important for nurses to know how to create strong narratives and oral presentations when providing information to others.

Robert Cialdini, a psychology professor at Arizona State University, applies his technical background to the task of explaining in everyday terms a subject that impacts all of us: persuasion, and the psychological principles that make it work. Sales professionals are a natural audience for this book; they will find in it the explicit theory and scientific research behind what they have already been doing for years by instinct and trial-and-error. For the rest of us, this book is a powerful defense against those manipulators who seek to exploit our psychological vulnerabilities to get us to comply with their desires.
Cialdini's basic theoretical perspective is that, to deal with a complex world, our brains have automatized responses to various phenomena. In the long-run and in general, these mental mechanisms are practical tools, enabling us to live in society harmoniously and to make decisions quickly and with minimal effort. In specific cases,…… [Read More]
And moreover, Barth summarizes Sennett's book as a discussion of how "eighteenth and nineteenth-century Paris and London" reflected an "erosion of public life through an analysis of middle-class behavior in the theater and on the street."
And Barth adds that Sennett's work "...lacks the terse logic of comparative history," and "makes many excursions into fleeting aspects of culture, yet in its discussion of the theater misses the rise of vaudeville house and music hall as the nursery of a new urban audience." Yes, Barth concludes, Sennett is correct that "public and private behavior changed between the three decades," but instead of documenting those public and private changes, Barth continues, Sennett calls upon (in Sennett's words) "...the expectations of a sophisticated, intelligent general reader."
And if that reader discovers (continuing with Sennett's words as quoted in Barth's essay) "a reasonable analysis of how a malady of modern society has come about,…… [Read More]

The traditional New England village social order in the 19th century had strict rules and the masses were accustomed to categorizing individuals on account of their gender. Women were regarded as housewives and it considered outrageous for a woman to act in disagreement with laws imposed by then male authority in her family. Mary E. Wilkins Freeman describes an episode in this society by concentrating on the relationship between men and women. Furthermore, she emphasizes the feelings experienced by a woman as she stands by and observes her forty-year-old marriage once again being dominated by her husband. One does not necessarily need to be surprised with regard to the central protagonist's behavior, as readers should actually understand the harsh…… [Read More]
Gaps occur in various situations. They can be in lesson plans or healthcare. When it comes to the MICU, practice gaps happen. To implement a quality improvement proposal one needs to see what works and how to use it to meet the needs of the proposal.

This weakness impairs ventialtor wearing and functional mobility. (AACN PEAL, n.d.,…… [Read More]
Harvard Professor of History and Economics David S. Landes states in his book that that no has the simple answer as to why some nations are very rich and some are very poor today, he nevertheless argues that the West has been way ahead of the East in progress and success. He categorically points to England as the first country in world history to develop and this happened in the 18th century. Because of this, he writes that Europe (or England) shows how a nation can succeed. The book is a direct negation of the concept of multiculturalism in declaring that even the Chinese and Islamic civilizations' great scientific and technological advancements could not continue to progress as Europe has. He attests to a European miracle in earlier centuries.
Landex compares the development of the West and the East to show how the West won and has led. He uses…… [Read More]
She was greatly disturbed by the hite Buffalo deer hunting party because she identified and sympathised with the deer. Unlike the rash temper Bernard Jr. displayed in times of conflict, Meteke was almost silent in her pain and anguish, to the point that her husband begged her to talk to him, resorting to offers for tea, food, and foot massages to ease her tensions and cheer her (Raboteau, Professor's 72). Professor Lester was fairly clueless about what ailed her, as she chose to steer around his questioning rather than answer him directly. One evening in bed she turned away from him, and when he asked why she seemed upset she responded "I'm tired," rather than confiding in him her fear for the dear (Raboteau, Professor's 83). The reader saw very little of who Meteke was before she married Professor Lester, so her identity was only really articulated in her response…… [Read More]

Hitler believed that the American economy, while formidable, would not be an obstacle as it was in a peace-time state, he believed it would be years before the Americans were able to re-tool and field an effective force. This was not the case. Overy contends that the socio-economic planning experience gained by the U.S. government during Roosevelt's New Deal was important to the re-tooling. He also cites an American "can-do ethos" as a spiritual driving force behind the re-tooling. Finally, the very fact of the Great Depression had left the American economy in a position where it had a lot of room to grow. The German economy, by contrast, was already operating at full employment levels by the time of the war's start.
The final factor Overy cites is the success of Allied air power. Allied bombing campaigns in Europe were effective in stifling German war-production and also in demoralizing…… [Read More]
Overall we are the vessels by which God does his work in this world, and this is ultimately the most important thing that we can do, therefore to interfere in his overall plan by asserting that our physical demands and ambitions are greater than God's grand plan is representative of false worship.
The goal of the author is obvious to write about how we have veered away from Christ through our pursuit of daily ambitions and to remind us that as faithful worshippers we have to understand and respect the message of God to the fullest. Furthermore, he wants us to understand that the Power of the Holy Spirit is eminent in all of us and that we can use this as a conduit to advance ourselves in both our spiritual and physical selves.
I think that overall the primary strength of this book is the conviction in which Lovett…… [Read More]
Individuals who successfully complete college will have more than the technical degree that he or she earned, but a mind that seeks new challenges and new solutions to problems. It is the fact that college builds us into a flexible machine that will inevitably push us to greater success in the future.
The final reason that everyone should go to college is that it creates greater work opportunities for the future. It has been statistically proven that those individuals who do not go to college will be severely limited in their selection of future positions. The reason is that college opens doors to future opportunities that we are not aware of at the outset. Therefore armed with a college degree we have a lot more options that ever before. Not only does this mean that we will engage in jobs that we actually have a passion for, but that our…… [Read More]
After World War Two, Carson realized the extent to which the government was permitting the use of toxic chemicals and wrote a book to expose the practice. That book was called Silent Spring, and it "challenged the practices of agricultural scientists and the government, and called for a change in the way humankind viewed the natural world."[footnoteef:8] Jensen includes an excerpt from Silent Spring to show that Carson was up against one of the most lucrative industries in the world, and that although her work is unfinished, Carson made a huge impact on raising awareness and eventually her work got DDT banned.

Faculty Members of Color
What problem or issue is being addressed?
The primary problem or issue addressed in this article is the vicissitudes of members of historic minority groups attempting to maintain careers in academia. Specifically, this article addresses common scenarios that befall members of faculty “of color” (Diggs et al, 2009, p. 312) as they strive to achieve tenure. The authors also consider the effect that gender has on such faculty members. There are frequent comparisons to situations which occur for minorities and women and those which take place between Caucasian men—and the inherent differences which seem to occur because of these demographic dissimilarities. From this perspective, the problem discussed is the effect of race/ethnicity/sex for those involved in academic positions in higher level education.
What are the main research questions?
The main research question is what impact race and ethnicity has for members of historic minority groups attempting…… [Read More]
Only parents with nothing to hide would allow their children to participate, while children with violent family histories might be withdrawn from the study, or pressured by their parents to lie.
Additionally, students might not want their records accessed, if there was potentially damaging evidence in their records, out of embarrassment or fear. Thus, to ensure that the study was valid, and to obtain a more representative cross-section of individuals, Ludwig violated basic ethical research principles of parental consent for participation for minors and did not obtain standard confidentiality waivers.

The null hypothesis of the research endeavor is that online professors will report no perceptible connection between post-tenure review and job performance.
The alternate hypothesis of the research endeavor is that online professors will report that post-tenure review improves job performance.
Nature of the Study
Significance of the Study
The significance of the proposed research is based in the need for greater study of online instruction in higher education with relation to post tenure review. As with all other elements of this research process, we can initiate a discussion on the significance of the research with a reiteration of the fact that amongst educators without classification, the perspective on post-tenure review is generally hostile. This is because tenure is considered by most educators to be an important feature of the profession demanding of protection. To this end, Ceci et al. (2006) indicate that…… [Read More]
Close eading of "Look at Your Fish"
Samuel H. Scudder composed "Look at Your Fish" in 1874. The piece is a narrative and anecdote of Scudder's first encounter with Jean Louis odolphe Agassiz. Agassiz, at the time of their meeting, was an accomplished zoologist working at the Harvard University Lawrence Scientific School. Scudder was an entomologist who studied under and was mentored by Agassiz during his time at Harvard. "Look at Your Fish" is Scudder's recollection of his first day in Professor Agassiz's course and the first class exercise in which Professor Agassiz assigned to the class. "Look at Your Fish" is told in a chronological, linear fashion. There are a few groups for whom this piece is the intended audience. One audience could be college students; another group could be professors at the undergraduate and graduate levels. This piece would also be relevant to any teacher or anyone serving…… [Read More]
Robert McCollough: Experiences from the past, pedagog for the future.
An onlooker into the courses taught by this professor would be surprised and little confused as to Robert McCollough's style. Robert strives to know each of his students individually, to the point that he can refer to them with nicknames and hash out class discussions in an almost informal manner. Students admire his candor and passion for knowledge, and are drawn to his courses. Somehow it is this magnetism that results in the ultimate success of his students, and with a class average of 4.0 it is no mystery that Robert McCollough is a student and university favorite.

A new idea wonders,

Katsushika Hokusai's Chinese Boys Learning to Write and Paint (1785) is housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is from the Edo period and done as a woodblock print, ink and color on paper (Metropolitan, 2013). Researching the Edo period, one finds that the time was characterized by more strict social order, isolationism, economic growth, and a push towards art and culture. For most scholars, this was a period of relative stability for Japan, broken in the 19th century (around 1867) with the end of isolationism, the rise of the peasant class, and issues with the Dutch, other Europeans and the United tates (Jansen, 2002). Hokusai was a printmaker, painter and artist known primarily in modern times for The Great Wave off Kanagawa (Figure 1), but also changed the form and subject of his works into a…… [Read More]
Ironically, the single most important thing a university could do might be to suspend all forms of grading by the traditional test methods. Even without cheating, the focus on grades only encourages studying to perform on test instead of learning for the sake of learning. It might not be practical for large classes, but one-on-one oral exams between students and professors or TAs might be more difficult to cheat on and provide more accurate indications of what students have actually learned than traditional testing methods. If the university cannot suspend traditional grading and testing, the single most important thing might be to provide a mandatory ethics course to freshman in conjunction with employing a very strict one-strike policy for cheating.

The real reason to go: Self-knowledge about Huckleberry and Jim's roles in their society. Huckleberry has always existed on the margins of society, because of his class. Even at the beginning of the novel he intuitively senses the falseness of piety and middle-class morality, embodied by the religious drawings of the bloodthirsty Grangerford's dead daughter. Unlike the civilized Miss Watson, Huck instinctively treats Jim like an equal, and his only qualms about allowing Jim to seek freedom come from socially learned ideas about race. Huck's boyhood idol Tom Sawyer behaves cruelly to Jim and Tom uses Jim at the end of the novel to play a childhood prank. Huckleberry learns that freedom is only possible on a raft, away from civilization. This is why, at the end of the novel, he vows to head for uncharted territories, and to never write again. Jim learns the true meaning of friendship as…… [Read More]

Nonverbal and Cultural Barriers to Communication
It is only when the intended receiver of a message understands the information contained within the message that communication can be regarded effective. The world is today regarded a global village. This effectively means that intercultural communication will continue being even more common going forward. In so many ways, effective communication will enable me to successfully execute the mandate of my new position. Given the multicultural nature of our institution, there exists a significant need for me to explore ways of overcoming cultural barriers to communication. In seeking to overcome the said barriers, I will amongst other things ensure that I understand the receiver's perspective. This will help minimize instances of wrong interpretation. I will also ensure that the message is delivered in a format that can be understood by…… [Read More]
ecruitment strategy and plan
This document is about laying down a strategy of recruiting employees in sincere college. Employees move, quit or transfer thus creating a need to open job application for interested candidates. It helps to determine what the job entails, tasks and skills of the employees. It covers an outline of the recruitment plan, job description, methods of recruitment, interview procedures and hiring. The strategy aims at attracting qualified applicants ready to take the job.
The goal is to attract higher standard candidate with skills promoting the name of the Sincere College. This can be achieved where the faculty of the Davis School of Business should suggest names of people who "know people" in the field who should be called upon to nominate individuals. The other way is posting advertisement in newspapers, journals read by people in this discipline and posting advertisement…… [Read More]
The slave economics of the plantation system do as well: the economics of the South explain why being a personal slave of a woman like Miss Watson in a more genteel area of the country is not as 'bad' as being a plantation slave in the deep South. The prospect of being sold further down South is what makes Jim so fearful. The politics of a corrupt political system that empowers the policing of fugitive slaves, and a history that normalizes human bondage and makes Huck feel guilty for fleeing with Jim as 'theft' are all manifest in the novel.
These plot points also shows how social aspects of geography can develop character: were it not for the Mississippi, Huck's views about race would not be changed and challenged. Through fleeing with Jim, Huck learns that he is not stealing Jim, but that Jim has a right to be free.…… [Read More]
When professors work with students with special needs they should always be certain to create an inclusive environment that encourages all students to shine. Moreover, community college professors need to develop curricula that honor diversity whenever possible. A comprehensive teaching philosophy for the community college professor therefore expands student awareness of diversity as well as of their subject matter. The community college instructor must also keep in mind that many students will have families, part-time, or full-time jobs and must therefore respect the needs for students to juggle differing demands. Professors should always listen to their students needs: if work loads appear too hard for many students then the professor should consider reducing them. Expanding awareness also includes helping students network. The community college professor should introduce students to various campus organizations, clubs, other classes, and community resources. The instructor should direct students to campus bulletin boards and career development…… [Read More]
Because the course is literature, we expect a challenging course that demands English language expertise. Yet as a professor, Doe is required to be encouraging. She is supposed to help her students excel, and not supposed to make her students feel belittled. Professor Doe expects that all her students perform at exactly the same level at exactly the same time, rather than acknowledge the diversity of learning style, experience, or pace.
I believe that Professor Doe is ill prepared either to adapt her instruction to address the individual needs of her students, or unable to identify appropriate, fair, and reasonable accommodations for them. Professor Doe does not seem to appreciate or acknowledge the value that foreign students have in her class. Rather than offer foreign students opportunities for academic advancement or personal progress, Professor Doe simply dismisses us with disdain. It has been left solely up to Professor Doe's students…… [Read More]
What is meant by the term 'social enterprise' and what do social enterprises contribute to society and the economies in which they operate?
The acceleration with which the world is changing day by day is continuous. A majority of organizations that have a motto of 'not-for-profit' are looking out for prospects with the help of which they can begin or widen their projects in order to get their missions fulfilled and offer the needy the earned profits. Thus, any organization or scheme that brings about the mentioned twofold objectives is considered a social enterprise. Social enterprises sell mission-related goods or services and by doing so they try to create a more impartial and fair environment through specific market-based strategies (Bornstein & Davis 2010).
In other words, a business is regarded as a social enterprise when the main objective is to cope up with the prevailing societal problems and…… [Read More]
There are always real human problems that might prevent someone from making a deadline, including car trouble, sick children, and a plethora of other issues that might arise and that are completely uncontrollable. Though Kim could have made better choices in getting her paper in on time, Professor Freud should not have a policy that completely disregards an entire course's worth of performance for one deadline.
Philip, Arnold's friend, has the least amount of responsibility in this scenario. Cindy, Kim's friend, is also partially responsible for failing to take Kim home when she repeatedly asked. In addition, her husband bears a fair share of the responsibility for refusing to hand over the car keys. Phillip, however, was only involved in increasing Arnold's insecurities about his wife. Arnold could just as easily have trusted his wife, or spoken to her more honestly and calmly about his insecurities, but it was not…… [Read More]
On the surface, the Academic Bill of Rights (ABOR) sounds innocuous and even full of cliches and platitudes about pluralism and academic freedom for all. Given that its author is David Horowitz, however, a 1960s Leftist ideologue who transformed himself into a Rightist ideologue over the last thirty years, a deeper examination reveals a hidden political agenda. His Bill of Rights or any other project in which he is involved should therefore never even be considered by any university or legislature. Contrary to what he claims in the ABOR, he is not in the least interested in promoting balance, fairness or pluralism in the university or anywhere else in American society, and all his efforts are simply stalking horses for the far Right. A man like this should never be allowed to get his foot in the door, no matter how polished his verbiage might be. Horowitz was…… [Read More]
senior at the Magic City School of Law, Sally Sue, who was top of her class of two hundred. This individual along with another individual planned the murder of the law professor; a very difficult instructor whose test Sally Sue was worried she could not pass. The individual, ob, who agreed to shove the professor down the stairs agreed to this when he was either inebriated or on some type of drugs or heavy medication. Sally Sue was so enraged when she made a C. On the exam that ob had not killed the professor that she ran at ob and shoved him down the stairs injuring him. The objective of this work in writing is to examine the case, as would a District Attorney when screening warrants and answer the questions asking:
(1) What, if any charges can be made against Sally Sue?
(2) What if any charges can…… [Read More]
However, if a professor is enthusiastic about the information, a student will be more likely to receive the information willingly. In those situations, where a professor is cautious on teaching a specific subject matter, the students may also approach the information with apprehension. With so many dynamics of behavior from students, the response may not always replicate the professor's instructions on the subject. As students may be apathetic to information even with: the most committed and passionate professors. This is because of their desire to be: confrontational, they are tired from the previous night's social activities, or are disinterested (because they are in a class and they do not want to attend).
Another area where a one-on-one interaction is more likely to occur is: between an employer and employee. Causes of behavior for an employee are determined by: the need to maximize employee's production, keep costs down, and increase profits.…… [Read More]
3. How did the American professoriate change and in what ways did the American Association of University Professors contribute to that change?
During this time there was a new idea surrounding academic professionalism that was essential to the creation of a university professoriate. The gradations of rank and promotion which included instructor, assistant professor, associate professor, and full professor, became the standard. The ranks were tied to the institution that is conferring tenure and the privileges of academic freedom to professors who had gained promotion. Academic freedom was institutionalized beyond the individual campus with the creation of the American Association of University Professors. This group intended to provide assurance and redress for faculty members who claimed that their academic rights had be violated by irate presidents or irritable board members (Thelin, 2004, 128).
The formation of the American Association of University Professors paved the way for tremendous change. The American…… [Read More]
By not being allowed alternative coursework, the professor is already infringing on the student's religious values and beliefs. Further, the professor also is not exercising the pursuit of academic freedom because he has put an institutional restriction on the student. Instead of using the student's belief to enhance the teaching by showing his students that the exercise of one's freedom is paramount in a true democracy, the professor has shown an authoritative to the point of being dictatorial in nature. The form and substance of what academic freedom and freedom of religion truly mean are lost because the professor forced the hand of the student where the latter ended up choosing to drop from the course rather than do a coursework against his beliefs. Between the professor and the student, it is the student who has demonstrated the true meaning and value of what academic freedom should stand for.

This is because, the efficiencies in the market are: providing no kind of leverage to these individuals. At which point, any kind of advantage that they may have would be eliminated. This is important, because it provides good insights, as to how efficient the markets really are. As a result, this is what will reduce the underlying returns every single year. The author is an economist with Oxford University. (urton 2005)
The article that was written by Chen (2005), discusses how the EMH theory can be able to provide the most relevant information surrounding stocks. Yet, when this was compared against computer-based programs, they were able to identify changes in prices at least 50% of the time. This is important, because it is showing how the changes in the expectations for stocks, can be more accurate when using various programs. Once this takes place, it meant that traders and investors…… [Read More]
There were certain moments in my life which did not allow me to pursue my study programs as desired; yet it was precisely this set of obstacles which consisted a challenge for me and determined me ever more strongly to pursue my goal. Therefore, I am due to graduate in May 2008 with a presentation entitled "Have Central Banks and Private Agents Become Wiser?" conducted under the supervision of Dr. Dennis Novy who has also offered me considerable support in trying to address issues such as inflation, the role of central banks, and their relation with private agents. His precious advice has led me to follow lines of thought different from the ones already addressed by the literature and has opened new research directions I intend to analyze in my future studies.
Aside from the traditional academic environment created by the universities I attended, another important input represented the experience…… [Read More]
Stories detailing the rise and fall of the Egyptians, the Roman Empire and other great nations proved mesmerizing and intriguing.
My interests in other areas have also been diversified; I have pursued many adventures, participated as president of many clubs, and won many competitions in music, sports, dance and more. My strength has always been academics however. During high school I was presented the unique opportunity to come to the United States and continue my education. It was here that I decided to study history initially. Though my parents pressured me to study finance or business, I found such work tedious at least initially. I did however entertain my parents and begin taking more classes in finance. This was probably the best decision I have ever made and helped create the professional I am today.
The more I learned the more I came to understand that finance was more than…… [Read More]
The applicability of history in the daily life, he indicated depended on how well as professor strives to relate the lessons learned in class, the literature found in books and other sources, with the daily happenings and how this can be applied in the future life. Apparently history is one of the subjects that man begins to learn in their lives even before they are in school. The stories told to them about some long time ago lifestyle, the movies they watch on Vietnam war, the childhood books they read about some influential leaders and so on are part of history that children come across at an early age. "Our live are surrounded by history and historical effects and aftermaths" concluded the professor on this topic of skills acquired by students.
The other methods in teaching history that could enhance the outcomes of the students in history is the emphasis…… [Read More]
Fordham University has hired D.I.G. Contracting LLC for their services to dig a foundation for a new dorm room project. The company rushes to begin work however they do not call the "call before you dig" hotline to ensure that the excavation will not interfere with any of the existing infrastructure that is under ground. However, do to this error a gas line breaks and throws the operator of the excavation equipment on top of Professor Horton.
The case mentions that Professor Horton tries to "catch" the employee who was operating the heavy equipment. I believe this is the key word in the context of the entire case. The fact that Professor Horton had the time to make a conscious decision about whether or not to try to help the propelled operator indicates that he "chose" to try to help this individual. Professor Horton is undoubtedly well aware…… [Read More]
4. Dr. Michael Hanchard. Political science professor at Northwestern University. Dr. Hanchard may be the most important contact in academia for any aspects of the study linked to race because Dr. Hanchard has done extensive work in both comparative politics and transnational politics. Furthermore, Dr. Hanchard may be able to provide insight into research methodology because he has done research on black political activists in various locales.
5. Dr. Wesley Skogan. Political science professor at Northwestern University. Dr. Skogan concentrates on citizens as consumers and creators of law, therefore he may have valuable insight on political involvement.
6. Dr. Dennis Chong. Political science professor at Northwestern University. Dr. Chong wrote Rational Lives: Norms and Values in Politics and Society, in which he examined the interrelationship between how people's individual choices effect their social and economic realms. Because choice of residence may be one of the most basic social choices, Dr.…… [Read More]
ather than being idle and receiving public benefit, individuals of working age typically prefer completing useful work. Mark P. Altieri, an associate professor of accounting at Kent State University, Kent, Ohio, and Jason A. othman, (2006), an associate at Wickens, Herzer, Panza, Cook and Batista, note a number of enhancements to WOTC in the article, "Surviving Katrina: Tax breaks for victims of the costliest catastrophe in American history."
According to Altieri and othman (2006), in regard to the WOTC - general law, under IC section 51, the WOTC provides motivation for employers to hire economically disadvantaged individuals. These disadvantaged individuals include qualified ex-felons, food-stamp recipients, veterans, summer youth employees, as well as individuals who receive certain welfare benefits (Altieri & othman, ¶ 23). Altieri and othman explain that in the past, the WOTC -- Katrina was expanded to embrace individuals whose principal residence on August 28, 2005, was located in…… [Read More]
List each of the transfer of training situations created by Dr. Camp, and identify how each of those situations relates to the information in the textbook related to transfer of training.
The statistical analysis serves two purposes: it enables program administrators to gauge the effectiveness of its training methods and identifies candidates who can contribute further to its success. Statistics provide one of the most objective measures of understanding. This facilitates the transfer of training by identifying employees whose actual performance indicates that they may require additional training to achieve satisfactory performance levels. The one-day refresher training facilitates transfer of training by providing a mechanism to gauge real-world experience with its implementation, in addition to providing a source of specific adjustments suggested by difficulties and any concerns identified in the first attempts to implement training in the organization. According to available research, subsequent reinforcement substantially increases the transfer of both…… [Read More]
Certainly, differences have arisen between instruction in the traditional classroom and instruction in the online virtual classroom. but, does that really mean that the role of the facilitator in distance learning is really going to be degraded to a low-skill job? Most likely not. Those who believe this to be the case wrongly undervalue skills when it comes to the needs of distance education, most of which are the very same as face-to-face education. To be effective, both traditional and online instructors should motivate students, facilitate communication, and foster collaboration. In fact, the onus for communication and collaboration is even higher to overcome the isolating nature of distance learning. Perhaps Simmons and Moore had not realized more than eight years ago how much communication channels such as e-mail, phone, video, discussion forums, and online chats would become a part of distance learning technologies. Thus, their view of facilitators is…… [Read More]
" (Dafler, 2005) Dafler relates that for more than thirty years children who were 'half-caste' "were forcibly removed from their families, often grabbed straight from their mother's arms, and transported directly to government and church missions." (Dafler, 2005) This process was termed to be one of assimilation' or 'absorption' towards the end of breeding out of Aboriginal blood in the population. At the time all of this was occurring Dafler relates that: "Many white Australians were convinced that any such hardship was better than the alternative of growing up as a member of an 'inferior' race and culture." (2005) it is plainly stated in a government document thus:
The destiny of the natives of Aboriginal origin, but not of the full blood, lies in their ultimate absorption by the people of the Commonwealth, and [the commission] therefore recommends that all efforts be directed towards this end." (eresford and Omaji, Our…… [Read More]
