leader within the educational sector, it is critical that that qualities of good leadership be reflected upon the entire course of ones career.The management and leadership of academic institution is in deed a challenge that often results in poor performance in our contemporary schools (Schmoker,2001). In this paper, we present an elaborate reflection of my views on educational leadership principles that I have explored in the context of your MAED program and my career, and offer a summary of how my development as a professional educator has informed my practice that led to completion of the Capstone Project and my overall degree program.

Educational leadership principles

The very first principle of quality leadership practice is the evidence of candidate learning. This means that all the educational programs must provide enough evidence that the candidates have indeed learned and comprehended the educational curriculum.In order to do this, it was necessary for…… [Read More]

Beyond the critical incident itself, which will be described and looked at as part of this report, I will also bring in a number of major themes and analysis methods. The two major tools that will be used in this report are Carper's Fundamental Patterns of Knowing and Gibb's Reflective Cycle. Each step and part of those two frameworks will be looked at in fairly strong detail. The essay will end with a conclusion that encapsulates and summarizes all the main points made throughout the report.

Coming back to the incident itself, the incident will not name the hospital or any of the people involved but the incident will be described with a strong level of detail. The details will include the problem that occurred, what led to the problem occurring, how the incident came about and climaxed and the resolution to the problem will be discussed at the end.…… [Read More]

It further outlines how assessment can be used for both individual learner mastery and continuous quality improvement of the instruction. Moreover the paper discusses how critical reflection is essential in the assessment process not only for the educator, but for learners as well. Besides, it presents a profile of own current professional educator role as a reflective practitioner.

Assessment and Critical Reflection

In my degree program, I have preferred the use of Personal Communication assessment method in evaluation of' learning progress. This method entails gathering information about what students have learned in the course of interacting with them. This assessment method, involves listening to students' views during classes; responding to their comments, as well as interviewing them (Brodie & Irving, 2007). The information gathered during such interactions provides descriptive feedback helpful in instructional planning, and self-reflection.…… [Read More]

It is necessary to understand what the reflective best self (RBS) is comprised of in order to disseminate the information received in the interview/surveys in this study. The reflective best self (RBS) The work of Laura Morgan Roberts and Jane E. Dutton entitled "Composing the Reflected Best-Self-Portrait: Building Pathways for Becoming Extraordinary in Work Organizations" reports that the word reflected is used to "emphasize that this self-portrait is based on our perceptions of how others view us.

Education

Copland and Knapp's belief that an inquiry into learning is an integral part of the existence of a professional learning community is definitely true. Learning itself is a life-long process. It never ends, regardless of whether or not people have completed their formal education or if they are even educator-researchers. However, particularly in the case when a person is involved in the profession mentioned in the latter situation, inquiries into learning play an essential part in the expansion of learning and the facilitation for the development of new methodologies and approaches that can effectively improve learning. Today's world is constantly changing and the information pertinent to it is in a state of flux as well, so it is actually part of the duty of any sort of educator-researcher or education practitioner to continue to revise and refine his or her methods of conveying education.

Reflexive Practice, Leadership and Critical Thinking

All three themes -- critically reflective practice, leadership, and critical thinking, can be summarized in the following snippet: An American president, as President Reagan's speechwriter, Peggy Noonan (1990), discovered experiences America by looking down. Much of his time is spent encountering his country and people via helicopter from which he sees tiny houses, tiny people, tiny cars, tiny roads. Noonan wondered how this affected Reagan's perspective. She later found out that it compelled him to see them as outside of himself and as himself as distinct from them.

This snippet, it seems to me, is somewhat what reflective thinking, critical thinking, and leadership are all about. Each concept contains a meta-analytic sort of substance, similarly to inhabiting a plateau where the air is more refined and where the person is separate from others.

Let's take these concepts one by one.

Words: 2049 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 18166870

Sustainability is a term that is often used in reference to environmental responsibility. This is the most common use of the term that many people have come to associate with "sustainability." Seldom do people consider sustainability to be associated with other areas of the business environment. Upon reading the article by Swartz (2010), two different connotations of sustainability stood out in my mind. The issue that Swartz addressed which created his very long day was accusations that Timberland was engaging in corporate irresponsibility concerning the environment. This is the only definition of sustainability that many people consider.

Swartz's reaction to 65,000 emails made me think about what I would have done as a CEO, if I had been the one to open my own e-mail inbox to find 65,000 angry emails. Upon reflection of Schwartz's response, I feel that he acted in the best way possible. First, he knew that…… [Read More]

Clinical Psychology / Bulimia Nervosa

The beginnings of clinical psychology date back to the year 1492, and it has changed from the mere treatment of mental illness to an entire field of research and experimentation, which has helped those individuals who have been affected by any form of mental disorders, like for example, the eating disorders like bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa prevalent among adolescent and twenty-year-old women all over the world, to overcome their habits so that they may lead better and more productive lives. Some of the more important names in the history of clinical psychology, who can be referred to as the founding fathers of the field, are Lightner Witmer and Wilhelm Wundt. It was their theories and methods that has paved the way for the clinical psychologists of today, who are today being trained to encompass more issues like the entire range of health care, for…… [Read More]

Social Work Critical Thinking a Higher Order

Words: 695 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Dissertation or Thesis complete Paper #: 41149233

Social Work

Critical thinking, a higher order of thinking about and dealing with issues, is quite relevant in many contemporary disciplines, particularly social work. It is a way of looking at information, of processing that information in an analytical manner, and having the ability to bring both life experience and other information to bear on the regular processes of one's discipline. Certainly, it can be used as an approach to daily lie, reading, public speaking, even watching movies or attending a concert. Within the social work discipline, it is a way to take a careful appraisal of beliefs and actions and then arrive at well-reasoned and thoughtful interventions that increase the likelihood of helping clients and avoiding harm -- reasonable and reflecting attitudes that help decide what to do and when (Papell and Skolnik, 1992).

The idea that a holiday is supposed to be a day off from work seems to be lost after the hostess as been cooking a turkey since 5am, and relatives had to slog through hours of traffic or long lines at airport security. Why not just approach the table as any other meal, but with more family members, than try to assemble the perfect sage-stuffed, wine-paired Thanksgiving?

Of course, the other major holidays seem like a mere lead-up to Christmas and Chanukah. The masses are in a desperate frenzy while searching for the perfect gift. A hapless shopper finally falls into a tear-stained muddle at the cash register, as she buys a generic pair of slippers for her father, since she was unable to find a tennis racket from his favorite manufacturer.

What does being a professional mean to you?

On the playing field, the difference between being a professional and being an amateur athlete seems clear. A professional is paid for his or her hobby, while an amateur plays for the love of the sport. Of course, the professional likely loves his or her sport, but the sport is his or her livelihood, not just a source of personal enrichment. There is a sense of responsibility to a larger organization and ethos, and also a sense of craft, for a professional must perform even when conditions are imperfect.

Moreover, even with these changes Verve will remain subject to government's heavy hand -- will this limit their profit potential no matter what other changes are made?

Response to Nash. The conclusion about subsidy being necessary is one element of insight that I liked, and that wasn't really outlined in the other posts. Verve has an ongoing lack of sustainability in its budget. I fail to see, however, how "cost analysis" would achieve anything. Granted, the company's hands are somewhat tied with regards to other solutions, but must of the firm's inefficiency is tied more to its burdensome regulatory environment than managerial incompetence. Old, inefficient plants cannot be made efficient without a serious infusion of capital. Cutting costs through other means is also difficult.

Change Agents: The "change agent" is again closely connected with the vision concept I have previously discussed. A manager needs to be able to deal with all the changes that the company is submitted to and adapt the organization according to the requirements from the market or act before the market. This is the only way it can actually remain competitive.

Reflective Skepticism: In my opinion, reflective skepticism means that nothing should be taken for granted and nothing should be believed to be true unless reflected on and proven by each individual in part. In an organization, reflective skepticism should be a significant resource of new and potentially profitable ideas.

Nursing Mentor Scenario

Introduction- Just as the theoretical and practical backgrounds of nursing have changed over the past several decades, so has the nursing education environment itself. . Students now entering the field are diverse in culture, educational background, and most especially age and experience. Traditional undergraduates coming directly from High School or Junior College often interact with more mature and experienced students. In addition, nursing instructors remain challenged to recognize different learning needs and styles, and respect that adaptive scenarios might be necessary to further the learning opportunities for many students. We thus see that the most effective way of teaching in the modern nursing classroom is to adjust one's pedagogical paradigm outward and to actively find new and innovative ways of reaching each student, rather than expecting each student to completely bend to the tried and true curriculum of previous generations (Young, L., Petson, B., eds., 2006).

Action the Importance of Creativity and Innovation

Action

The importance of creativity and innovation in the workplace is well documented, but the debate over nature vs. nurture continues with some authorities maintaining that people are born with attributes such as creativity and innovation while others argue that such attributes can be inculcated over time (Furnham & Heaven 1999). To determine the facts in these matters, this case study examines the relevant literature to gain some fresh insights concerning how creativity and innovation can be most effectively stimulated, support and sustained within a given organization. A summary of the research and important findings are presented in the case study's conclusion.

Companies of all types and sizes are currently attempting to gain a competitive edge through creativity and innovation. Creativity in the workplace is defined by Garrison, Harvey and Napier (2008) as being "the production of ideas, products, or procedures that are (a) novel or original; (b) appropriate for…… [Read More]

Words: 1100 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 4187996

Assertiveness

Many people believe the word "assertive" is a synonym for "aggressive" and that is not the case. Assertiveness also has been misunderstood to mean something like pushiness, or even bullying. The actual meaning of assertiveness relates to a person taking into account one's own personal rights and the rights of others. "Appropriate assertiveness" is an important skill, according to the book Understanding Human Behavior and the Social Environment (Zastrow, et al., 2009). Assertive communication can involve verbal and nonverbal behavior, and it allows the speaker to make points "…clearly and straightforwardly"; as an assertive person, you have the right to "stand up for yourself without unwarranted anxiety"; you have the right to express ideas and opinions "openly and honestly"; you also have the right "to be wrong," and to "not be liked by everyone" (Zastrow, p. 312).

Emotional Intelligence and Midwife Practice

There are many different kinds of knowledge and intelligence, and while scientific/medical knowledge is often considered paramount in pregnancy and birthing scenarios another kind of intelligence can actually be just as important, if not more so. Though there is some controversy over the exact definition and use of the term, emotional intelligence -- which can be basically understood as the ability to recognize and effectively respond to the emotions of others and of oneself -- has been recognized as a very useful and even necessary asset and knowledge area in many endeavors (Matthews et al., 2004; Wharam, 2009). A high level of emotional intelligence, which is to some degree inborn but which can also be achieved through practice, conscious awareness, and increasing openness and receptiveness, can ease many situations and lead to more comprehensive and effective decision-making (Wharam, 2009).

Self-Awareness

There are many traits of great importance to the midwife in order to accomplish a successful job and a positive experience by the patient, and self-awareness is perhaps one of the most essential. Self-awareness consists in part of understanding one's motives and motivations -- knowing why certain actions are seen as desirable -- and in a more philosophical sense can be understood as a recognition of the set of experiences that create the personally identified ("I," "me") individual without necessarily defining or limiting that individual (Wickham, 2004; Brooks & DeVidi, 2011). In other words, self-awareness is truly being aware of the self -- of it's physical and psychological makeup and construction, insofar as is possible, and of how the specific construct that is the self interacts with the world. For the midwife, this means understanding how patients and other perceive actions, and the degree to which the midwife can…… [Read More]

Attendant upon my transition into the role of Mental Health Staff Nurse, I have devised the following reflective model-to-action plan for the formulation of workable communication skills. Realizing that "…all healthcare professionals require a reasonable level of numeracy for the safe administration of medicines and fluids, budgeting, and the interpretation of statistics,"

(http://learntech.uwe.ac.uk/numeracy 2011), I determined to include practical strategems for assessing ratios and SI units. Realizing also that contemporary education in most disciplines is reorganizing approaches to learning in the light of learning styles and the new paradigm shift which focuses upon the teacher as facilitator and the students as self-directed learners, I began to review various modes of facilitation as well as ways to evaluate student involvement and leadership. The foregoing necessitated a revolutionary change in my personal understanding of communication skills and my selection of the best rudimentary skills to which I might lay claim…… [Read More]

Additionally, as a future application, it would even be important to remember that people of different backgrounds have different skills and abilities. Instead of striving to standardize them, the players in the workplace community should try to capitalize more on the points of difference offered by culturally diverse staff members, such as their increased ability to communicate with culturally diverse customers.

Hoffman and Moore (2004) recommend training and communication as part of the implementation plan to improve ethical behavior. As part of the resolution process when facing ethical dilemmas, retraining on ethical standards and practices, legal ramifications, regulatory compliance/guidelines and code of conduct are imperative. Therefore, even if other values are not considered, at least the most important ones will be considered during the problem-solving process.

Applications

I strongly believe in the ethical leadership skills of my immediate supervisor. As we all know, great leadership does not occur in a vacuum. Very often, it is by observing admirable leaders that people learn to become good leaders in their own right.

Reflective Teaching

This last element of diversity education also creates a place for reflective teaching, which is also directly encouraged by an examination and application of Bloom's taxonomy of learning. Analyzing student achievement with an eye towards the improvements diversity education is expected to instill allows for a deeper analysis of the teaching methods and perspective being utilized. The direct application of Bloom's taxonomy in the development of lesson plans and activities also necessarily depends upon the questioning and analysis of teaching practices, and the constant reexamination of these practices as student achievement and progress provides feedback to the instructor. Producing higher order learning and interactions requires a constant conscious attention to the details of learning activities and levels of engagement, and this places the use of Bloom's taxonomy -- for increased diversity as well as other purposes -- squarely in the realm of reflective teaching.

Unfamiliar vocabularies relating to learning and cognition emerged in the course of Week 4's readings and research. These include "mnemonics," "mental representation," and "domain knowledge." Mnemonics may essentially be defined as the techniques an individual uses to enhance memorization. These techniques are useful for learning as they help retain crucial information in the long-term memory. When information is retained in the long-term memory, it is organized in a certain manner. This is referred to as mental representation. Mental representation plays an important role in learning as learning generally occurs when the learner has a clear picture of a given phenomenon in his/her mind. Domain knowledge simply refers to knowledge relating to a given area or field. For instance, seasoned doctors have extensive knowledge of the domain of medicine. They acquire this knowledge not inherently, but through continuous learning.

Practicum: Clinical rotations with preceptor; serving patients with acute, chronic and new medical issues.

One of the things I have discovered during my recent experiences with both academic and clinical education and an EBP project is that there are numerous and effective ways of learning, presenting, and communicating. Each method, however, has one critical thing in common -- it must be a two-way path and none are effective unless there is clear communicative understanding on the part of the receipient, patient, family or colleague. Aristotle, for instance, once commented that "For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them."

Teaching, I believe, is a vocation that should be pursued by those who can help students to not just master required subject matter but develop skills for critical thinking, so that, they in turn, will be able to contribute to and further build on the accumulated body of knowledge in their chosen fields. To successfully achieve the aforesaid objective requires personal commitment; mastery of the subject being taught; originality and creativity; and the ability to make students relate to the subject matter.

Given my own views on 'teaching,' I was naturally pleased to find that the objectives of my course had been carefully structured and defined to meet precisely the above-mentioned requisites. This has been particularly meaningful for me as both a student today, and hopefully, as a teacher of high schools students tomorrow.

Kant's Critique Of Practical Reason And Other Writing On The Theory Of Ethics

Kant's article on practical reason on the theory of ethics draws heavily from deontological ethics. To make the term understandable from the layman's point-of-view, deontological ethics is simply the study of moral obligation. This implies duties that a person must perform in the course of his relationship with others or to put it simply, duties that an individual is expected to perform if he is to lead a quiet and peaceful existence. This implies duties a person must exercise for himself, towards his fellowmen, towards country, towards God. Basic to this article is the supreme principle of morality which underlie the reason for all rules of ethics and the concomitant duties that an individual must perform.

Taken broadly, duties are actions that are mandatory - in other words required and must perforce be done. Some philosophers through…… [Read More]

placement practice I discovered a great deal about pressure ulcers that occur following perioperative care.

During my complementary placement on a short stay ward I was involved in the care of patients through their perioperative period. I was amazed how quickly one patient developed a pressure ulcer. The experience and subsequent investigation produced several facts concerning the reasons why such ulcers develop, how to prevent them from occurring, treatment and the emotional, financial and physical hardships that having these ulcers produce in patients.

To evaluate my experience, I have chosen to use Driscoll's model of reflection. Driscoll's model was chosen because of the simple but reflective manner in which it concentrates on questions that are pertinent to the care of patients. The model is divided into three…… [Read More]

Biases and Judgment

In the notes from the Juicy Red Tomato Steering Committee, it becomes quite clear that there are several biases, held by the steering committee members, and that these are reflected by their attitudes and comments regarding the proposal. Reflective decision-making is not being utilized by these committee members, as also evidenced by their comments. Reflective decision-making requires reflective thinking, and this is based on an individual being open-minded and willingness to challenge their personal beliefs with new information ("Professional certificate," 1999). Clearly, the committee members are not willing to challenge these personal beliefs and are acting in a close-minded fashion, as demonstrated by the biases they exhibited.

When they see the library staff in this light, teachers are more willing to work with others in improving the effectiveness of their lesson planning (by incorporating more tools and techniques). (Gregory, 2003, pp. 100-109)

Task 4: Change can be difficult for some. Think about a change you would like to see in your educational or work environment. How would you implement this change? Consider and discuss the possible resistance that you may encounter from your professional community. How would you support them throughout the change process? How would you overcome any resistance to the change?

A change that can be implemented inside an educational environment is to unify the approach educators are using in reaching out to students. What normally happens is most teachers have different theories and practices they are following. This can be problematic as some of the most experience educators may be reluctant to alter their…… [Read More]

Negotiating for a Used Car

Words: 1877 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97231445

In retrospect, the argument could have been made that the Chevrolet Cavalier was very old and was not worth $3,000, even with a brand-new windshield, horn and the maintenance agreement worth $300. A counter-offer a $2,500 could have been proposed and negotiations could have continued until Archie conceded a few more dollars or the deal broke down. As noted above, though, a secondary objective was to successfully complete the negotiations in an efficient fashion, and this knock-down, dragged-out approach was not deemed appropriate or even potentially effective since Archie had made some valid points concerning the expenses involved in repairing the vehicle to my satisfaction. In sum, both parties to this negotiation received most of what they wanted and the car has performed admirably to this day.

For example, if he was British I might try to respect his reserve, and try to curtail some of my stereotypically American gestures or bluntness towards him. I might also make some references to his culture that I found interesting. However, if Hodge came from a more highly emotive culture, I might still express my interest in aspects of his native land, but I might try to be more, rather than less reserved than is my custom.

In dealing with the reflective colleague whom I often disagreed with, I would try to make use of both of our common communicative styles, to establish a rapport. This might be difficult, because reflectives tend to be fairly uninterested in emotions, and more attuned to factual details. However, as both supportives and reflectives tend to be less confrontational, I would try to appeal to my colleague's fascination with facts, and emphasize our mutual…… [Read More]

Human Trafficking Was to 'Give Voice to

Words: 478 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Dissertation Paper #: 65758296

human trafficking was to 'give voice to the voiceless.'

Human trafficking is a serious issue but because its primary victims are poor and often young and female, they receive little attention from the mass media.

This is a difficult and unpleasant issue that people would rather forget about than acknowledge exists in our present-day society.

The topic presented an interesting challenge to me as a qualitative researcher because it was essential that I provide information about this sensitive subject to the reader from the women's perspectives without impinging upon the women's privacy.

I felt it necessary to allow the women to speak for themselves yet there were logistical issues about translation and also about making cross-cultural generalizations.

Another challenge was that I wished my research to have a real, material effect upon how trafficking was viewed. Although I took a scholarly approach, it was essential that I was rigorous in…… [Read More]

Medea's Revenge the Development of Her Plans

Words: 1378 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 90091283

Medea's Children: Revenge And Euthanasia

Over the course of Euripides' play Medea, the protagonist makes five truly significant speeches which seem to provide the outline for the plot. In these speeches Medea addresses the audience or the chorus of women, among whom she seeks a measure of justification and self-understanding. From the beginning her motivation and determination in destroying Jason's new family is obvious. However, her thoughts regarding the death of her own children seem to vacillate throughout the work. Over the course of these speeches, one sees the development of her revenge, the careful strategic outlay of her plans, and steady struggle between her maternal instincts, her womanly desire for revenge, and he desire to shelter her children from a harsh reality.

When we first see Medea enter the play, she is hysterical in grief. At that moment, she speaks of hating her children, saying "Children of a hateful…… [Read More]

Friday Night Lights is a movie about the Permian Panthers, who are a high school football team in Odessa, Texas. The town is racially prejudiced and the economy is bad. The one exciting night in the week is Friday night because that is when the Permian Panthers play their football games. Because of problems on the team and the ways they face the problems, the Permian Panthers teach lessons in character, discipline, team work and also show some things that are wrong with football.

Reflective Portion

"Friday Night Lights" shows how the good qualities of character, discipline and team work can be developed in football. Dictionary.com says that "Character refers especially to moral qualities, ethical standards, principles, and the like" (Dictionary.com).

One critical barrier to 'paying attention' is a lack of time. When someone calls me early in the morning and I am in a rush to get ready, I am often guilty of not paying attention to the person who is speaking. This morning, someone called me when I was still foggy and in the process of waking up. Only after finishing the conversation and agreeing to meet the person for coffee at 4pm did I remember that I had another engagement at that time. I had been agreeing to everything the speaker was saying, just to get off of the phone and get into the shower. This required me to call the person back and explain my error. Regarding the nonverbal component of this communication, one problem with phone calls is that there is often little personal investment in a call. It is…… [Read More]

Organizational Health Educational Institutions Generally Approach Organizational

Words: 2709 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 11719523

Organizational Health

Educational institutions generally approach organizational improvement by addressing the performance standards to which students, educators, and administrators are held. The standards movement has been a dominant theme in educational policy arenas and in the public eye. With roots in the 1950s Cold War mentality, the thrust of educational improvement has been prodded by perceptions of international industrial and scientific competition. If the rigor of educational standards in the nation -- according to the logic of this argument -- falls below that of other countries, our economy will falter and the balance of trade will be compromised, perhaps beyond the point of recovery.

Fears for the future of the country and our citizens run deep; these fears propel a course of action that is not particularly based on rational thinking and lacks a base of evidence. The course of action adopted by educational policy makers and educational leaders in…… [Read More]

Dental Assistance (dental Surgery)

I started out as a dental assistant at 19, then became an instructor, and was promoted to a program director before opening my own teaching program in 2000. I work part time at a community college and teach my dental auxiliary courses on the weekends. In that way, I have an extensive background of practice, reflection, observation, and application that is connected to my job. Since I really have two jobs -- dentistry and teaching -- and the essay wishes me to employ just one, I will focus on the overarching one: dentistry.

Note that these four terms - practice, reflection, observation, and application - represent those used by David Kolb's experiential learning theory and indeed my essay format will be designed according to Kolb's theory so as to best illustrate the contributions of experience to my dentistry background.

Nursing Education

Does nursing have a unique body of knowledge or is it the application of various other fields of knowledge in a practice setting?

Nursing does have a unique body of knowledge as Moyer and Whittmann-Price (2008) state "it is nursing's unique knowledge base that warrants a unique service or practice called professional nursing" (6). This means that like the other help-specific sciences nursing was founded on the basis of research that is unique to the methods needed for the practice of that occupation and no other. This definition of this practice is bounded within that research

What are the expectations and patient considerations of evidence-based practice in nursing?

First of all, evidence-based practice assumes that the exercise of the field is predicated on what research has determined will best aid patients. Expectation, viewed from an ethical perspective, is that nurses will provide care that is not anecdotal but…… [Read More]

Burzotta, L. & Noble, H. (2011). The dimensions of interprofessional practice. British Journal of Nursing, 2011, 20(5): 310.

This article uses the Gibbs reflective cycle to analyze a specific case confronted by a nurse in the field of practice. The cycle includes "description of the event, feelings encountered, the positive and negative aspects of the experience, an analysis of the event, and a conclusion of the overall experience" (Burzotta & Noble 2011: 310). The Gibbs reflective cycle is intended for both nurses and patients to understand the full social and emotional implications of healthcare decisions that are made. The subject of the article, Mrs. Jones, was diagnosed with late-stage breast cancer and was entering into the palliative care process. Mrs. Jones had a small child as well. Despite the severity of her diagnosis, the treatment team focused on addressing Mrs. Jones' psychological, social, and physical needs in a holistic fashion,…… [Read More]

Generations of Family TV Shows

Many believe that scripted television shows provide a window into the culture, by portraying cultural norms and standards. Therefore, family television shows should highlight aspects of family life in American culture during the time period in which the shows were produced, not necessarily the time period portrayed in the show. This investigation will involve a single television episode from two family-focused television series that stopped airing new shows at least 20 years ago, and a single episode from two family-focused television series that are currently airing on modern television. The two older television shows chosen for this paper are Little House on the Prairie and Bewitched. The two currently-running television shows are Good Luck Charlie and Two and a Half Men.

Such a statement provides the framework or context within which the company's strategies are formulated. It should incorporate socially meaningful and measurable criteria addressing concepts such as the moral/ethical position of the enterprise, public image, the target market, products/services, the geographic domain and expectations of growth and profitability. The intent of the mission statement should be the first consideration for any employee who is evaluating a strategic decision. The statement can range from a very simple to a very complex set of ideas. Regardless of the industry, organizations should develop a mission statement, along with a vision statement.

The mathematician's goal might be to determine the angle of a triangle; the painter's goal might be to assault the viewer's eye with a distorted or 'wrong' proportion or using an impossible perspective. In other words, the criterion depends on the desired result of the project and the type of literal or figurative knowledge one wishes to convey. Neither system of knowledge is better, merely different, with different criteria or goals.

Elgin's statement of reflective equilibrium acknowledges human beings have many different goals in knowing something is true or right. Sometimes our goal is to make something practical, as when seeking knowledge in a scientific truth. Other times it is to reconcile two different moral ideas from two different systems. Other times it might be to create art. Elgin is not a relativist, a charge that might be leveled at her words by some foundationalists. She states that one needs…… [Read More]

These claims are virtually all based on the concept that corporations - particularly multinationals -- should be held accountable for their actions within their sphere of operations. "Corporations, for their part, have responded in numerous ways, from denying any duties in the area of human rights to accepting voluntary codes that could constrain their behavior" (Ratner, 2001, p. 436). In fact, this very point is echoed throughout the literature; for example, "At the turn of the 20th century, corporations tended to disregard the public interest willy-nilly. And even as recently as one-half century ago, corporations had so much power over the marketplace and so little responsibility to society" (Sriramesh & Vercic, 2003, p. 450). Despite these trends, things are changing, though, as Ratner points out: "The last decade has witnessed a striking new phenomenon in strategies to protect human rights: a shift by global actors concerned about human rights from…… [Read More]

Thereafter, in June 1938, as a direct signal of approval that Ford cars sold in Germany were finally being made entirely in Germany, the Nazi government placed an order for 3,150 custom-designed, three-ton V-8 trucks based on an assurance from Ford's headquarters that the vehicles were not being intended for military use (Baldwin, 2001). According to this author, "There was no danger of war on the horizon; besides, if the German consumer market did not warm overwhelmingly to the four-cylinder Ford 'Eifel' sedan, then the company needed to go with the demand for other vehicles" (Baldwin, 2001 p. 283).
