I remember the feeling of brimming excitement as my father and I left the hose that morning. I kept looking out the windows as the familiar streets of our home rapidly gave way to unfamiliar corners and a neighborhood I had never seen before. My father was typically taciturn during the 20 minute drive, but even he could not help breaking out into a smile as we pulled into the gravel parking lot behind the high, chain-link fence. It was career day at his workplace, R.E. Mifflin, and as such, I was allowed to finally accompany my father to his job and see him in action. I had always wanted to know just what exactly my father did with the lengthy light blue sheets of paper with the complex diagrams that he puzzled over at home on occasion, and he had….
mechanically correct writing skills. This Chamberlain's ideas disseminated within his text "The Importance on Race" are as rigid and as austere as the purity of race he describes in benign terms. One of the more interesting points about this work is that in many ways, his ideas can be understood as both a response to the bureaucratization of life and as an example of such bureaucracy. These interpretations largely hinge upon the author's compartmentalizing of people (and even animals) according to their race, which he actually traces to different groups throughout history.
As an example of bureaucratization, the author's notion of a pure race functions as the ultimate form of compartmentalization. He posits the viewpoint that only those whose bloodlines are quintessential and undiluted can truly accomplish noble tasks. His value for such people, which inevitably is used to justify the Teutonic peoples in Germany as the ideal master race,….

The anxiety is compounded based not only on choice, but also on taste and preference. Because of technology, we humans are capable of doing tremendous damage to the planet based on the decisions of what to eat. In fact, this is so serious, that Pollan notes that we now have the added dilemma of potentially devastating the ecology of some areas simply to provide a certain "taste" for x cuisine.
This is even more complex when we think about ethics and our treatment of animals. I had never realized just how unethical factory farming could be -- and how out of balance it is to raise thousands and thousands of chickens or turkeys in a hot barn that is so unhealthy for them that they have to be pumped full of antibiotics just to live; or the egg farms that pack chickens so tight their feet grow into the wires.….
Improving the Writing Skills of Saudi Students in English-Speaking Colleges
Learning a foreign language and using it to enhance a traveling experience is one thing, but using a second language for studies in higher education is truly difficult. Those who are able to accomplish their academic goals in a language that is not their first language achieve something quite remarkable. The purpose of this study is to explore the differences in Saudi students writing in Arabic and English, to research the perceptions of Saudi students regarding their experiences studying abroad and any effects on their writing in English that they attribute to living in an English-speaking country.
While there are many different aspects of English language that make reading, speaking, and writing difficult for students whose first language is not English, one of the most troublesome is cohesion. This paper will explore the concept of cohesion as it impacts the study and….
There may also be expectations as to how the map is drawn such as a fill in the black approach (Miller et al., 2009). Whereas the open ended process does not place any limitations on the shape of the map or the terms that may be used, however, a small selection of trigger terms may be provided to assist the student (Miller et al., 2009). This approach allows the student to create the map in a manner that is conducive to their understanding of the knowledge of a concept (Miller et al., 2009).
Traditionally, concept maps have been paper and pencil tools, however, increasingly computer software has become available as an alternative to concept mapping. This approach allows for more creativity on the part of the student to design their map in a manner that is conducive to their learning style and compartmentalization of information (Miller et al., 2009).

The ability to research and interpret and then apply various local and federal and State laws as well as ordinances related to Community Programs is an extremely important and demanding skill. One example of the demonstration of this ability is that explained by Thomas R. Suozzi, the County Executive of Nassau, and Lorna B. Goodman, County Attorney of Nassau County, in their Annual Report on their County presented in December 2004. Herein, it is stated that with the support of the people of the county, they have managed to indeed accomplish a great many things, and they then proceed to list out the various activities and accomplishments. The first one is, according to the Report that of managing to bring 'in-house' the remaining part of the more than $10 million of specified legal work that had actually been given to the private bar earlier. The reason for….
The course work has immensely improved my reading, writing, and thinking skills. Prior to reading the course materials, there were established beliefs on certain issues and interest in me. For example, the issue of racism and health care was a matter that had always caught my attention, because of my Hispanic heritage. acism was a topic of concern and interest, but I was never a victim of any form of racism. Therefore, from the beginning, I was not in a position to fathom the ordeal and experiences minorities go through because of racism. It is through reading, writing and analytical thinking of articles that I appreciated this social dynamic. It has always been difficult for me to explain and imagine that I could be a victim of racism.
After this course, I am able to use my reading skills that have improved and increased my reading speed and comprehension.….
Good writing skill, as a form of business communication, is equally important with verbal communication because it makes the latter stronger during business activities.
Furthermore, good writing skill is important in the marketing activities of a business. It is from good writing skills where businesses can exercise marketing strategies for their products and services. For instance, in the advertising brochures distributed by a business to its clients and customers, a good writing skill applied to the development of the brochures can push the company's convincing power in promoting their products and services, thus providing them with a ticket to success.
Good writing skill is important in the business world because good communication enhances the possibility of success to every business endeavors. Good writing skill, being a form of communication, is therefore among the important elements to a….
Program ReflectionFollowing my graduation from college, I hope to pursue a career in criminal justice. Within the field of criminal justice, there are a number of different roles that I could potentially pursue. Like many students studying criminal justice, I am unsure of which specific role I hope to pursue. However, I am certain that I want to work within the federal corrections system. This system is in need of reform, and I hope to be a part of the change. In addition, I believe that my experience as a corrections officer will be valuable in this role.In five years, I do have some hope to be working as a federal corrections investigator. This position would allow me to use my skills to help improve the conditions within the federal corrections system. In ten years, I believe I could build on that experience and be working as a federal correctional….

Matrix A shows a set of skills and tri-part analysis of those skills for five individuals. The Matrix is based on: S = Strong, W = Weak, or T= In Training. The skill sets are: problem solving, written communications, oral communication, leadership, creativity, goal orientation, multi-tasking, time management, analysis, delegating, and strategic thinking. Analysis of the matrix shows the following:
Based on the matrix, areas of concern are, in order of ranking:
Oral Communication (3 weak)
Strategic Thinking (4 still in training)
Analytical Skills (3 still in training)
Written Communication (1 weak, 3 in training)
Time Management (1 weak)
If we assign points to each individual as 3 for Strong, 2 for In training, and 1 for weak, we find that the group itself is relatively homogeneous: Joshua, Thea and Michael at 29 points; obert and Melodie at 28 points. This would indicate that, in general, the group is….

Learning to read and write in English has been one of my most treasured accomplishments in the recent past. To begin with, learning to read and write in English is in my opinion the very first step towards becoming a fluent speaker of one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. In that regard therefore, I am convinced that fluency in English is a plus as I pursue my career of choice. Given that English is one of the most common languages, corporations and most organizations would ordinarily hire individuals who can relate well with their customers and clients. Being able to read, write, and speak English will therefore give me a distinct advantage in my future job seeking endeavors. It is also important to note that fully aware that the world is increasingly becoming interconnected; the relevance of learning an additional language cannot be overstated. It….

The author takes a chance bringing a new form of writing to a middle school, a technique that is innovative but not commonplace, thus would give rise to much questioning, which may be an obstacle teacher's would face trying to implement this type of learning style. This learning approaches views all students as independent, thus in an environment where everything is "sterile" or "sterilized and standardized" this type of learning system may receive some objection. By and large however, once educators realize how significant the improvements are among students adopting this method, they are likely to become more compliant and willing to place more effort at implementing this type of program.
The baseline approach used by the researcher to measure improvement is the ability of students to write using their own thinking skills, so they can in theory, teach others about writing. This is difficult to do, because this learning….
