My observation of a communication event that I experienced:
When I was younger my Dad was always showing me how to do handy things like how to change a lightbulb or how to change your sprinkler heads. One time in particular that I remember, he was showing me how to change a tire on my bike. He showed me the whole process, all the tools I would need and all the steps needed to complete the task. Once he had finished changing the tire on my bike he put all the tools away and told me to replicate what he had just did so he knew that I had learned it. By getting me involved in the work and having me do it without his direct help gave me experience and allowed me to practice what he had just taught me. This helped us develop the great relationship that we have today.

Concept named and defined:
(Chapter 15, Parent Child Relationships) Over the course of the family life cycle, communication between parents and children evolves as new events occur. It is during this time that the dialectical tensions between autonomy and connection are perhaps the strongest. In the beginning of their lives children are totally dependent on the parents to provide for them and look out for their best interests. In the United States, many parents begin teaching children at a young age to become independent. Children are encouraged to learn to eat by themselves, pick out their own clothes, and to explore their individual interests in sports and other extracurricular activities. But even while encouraging independence, many parents simultaneously reinforce the message that they are still connected to their children. Providing children with cellular telephones is one strategy currently used by parents to stay connected as their children explore autonomy. Basically, parents want their children to learn to do thing on their own. One way my Dad did this was by showing me first and then letting…...

...her her life. She is now faced with a choice. A medical dilemma of saving her life with the use of an abortion, or the moral dilemma of saving her childs life. What is right? In the U.S. about 1.6 million pregnancies end in abortion. A majority of women in America with an income below 11,000 are 3 times more likely to abort their unborn child rather than those whose income is above 25,000. Also, women who are divorced or unmarried are 4 to 5 times more likely to abort than a stable married woman.(1) The most commonly used procedure for an abortion is the vaccum aspiration which is used during the first trimester (from conception to three months).

Before a child is born it is given all of it's necessities to survive. Before birth the child heart beats, the gastric juices flow in the stomach, and all it's necessary organs are intact.

...Will Gorham Journal 1 ENGM 244 – 1 In our first lecture Professor Birdsong focused on three main points: networking, Jordan’s theory of options, and goal setting. Regarding networking, she emphasized that the key to business success is managing relationships. Without successful interpersonal relationships one can expect to struggle finding success in the business world. According to NPR, 70-80% of jobs are acquired through networking and relationships instead of formally submitting an application through a job posting ( This has proved true in my own life as well. Of all the jobs I’ve worked, I have only been hired once through a formal application process. For every other job or internship I have worked at, I was hired because of the relationships I had with people at the company or through my extended network. The importance of relationships and communication also applies inside of organizations. No matter what type of business one works for they will be constantly interacting with other people, particularly if they are in a leadership position. Jordan’s theory of options describes the phenomenon of how, as a person ages their options gradually decrease and their responsibilities increase. This is particularly true from a career standpoint. Older individuals who have been working in a particular field for much of their lives have much less career mobility than younger people......

...out of their favorite crackers, they slipped in a puddle in the aisle, if the checkout lines are too long, if another employee was rude to them, etc. I have to not take things to heart and I am the last chance to make that customer’s experience better. The same goes for people of different genders, ethnicities and backgrounds. My Sociological study has shown me the different experiences people of different backgrounds go through. Being able to relate and understand people is my favorite quality of mine. Hopefully my studies will only increase my capabilities. My personal and professional weaknesses include procrastination, being seen as overly emotional, and having a lack of social connections. It’s 3 PM right now and this paper is due at 5, I’ve got to go to work soon so I need to hurry and finish writing! Procrastination is generally a week point of mine, but it can have its positive side. I do some of my best work when I’m under pressure! On the other hand, if the work you have to do is too extensive, then giving yourself a limited time to do it will result in failure. I noticed as an officer in FFA that people with certain personalities will see me as week and emotional. I am more of an expressive leader so I care about the people of the group. I strive to make sure they are prepared emotionally and physically to take on the task at hand. This can be misunderstood by a few other people. Finally I’ll be honest when I say that I don’t have a lot of friends. I work, I go......

Journal Entry for Chapter 5

...Journal Entry 11.Chapter 5: The teacher and his teachings, Pages: 108-109. Monday 24, 2014 A New Kind of Teacher Socrates a different kind of teacher, he was not paid to be a teacher and his teaching method was different. He believed that people could not think clearly if they are not clear on what they are analyzing or talking about. Therefore, in his teaching sessions he would ask questions and answer them the best he could. So I wondered, how different would the education system be if we had follow Socrates way of teaching? Socrates is one of the most important people in western philosophy. I found it interesting that we have no writings from his own hand, from his two students Plato and Xenophon. I agreed with Socrates claim that appearance of the body is less important than how it functions and true beauty comes from spirit and character. I questioned if spirit and character is more important than the physical appearance, why do modern society judge an individual based on their physical appearance? Journal Entry 12.

Journal #1

...Today I read an article about Juvenile Justice on Los Angeles Times named “ Boy who killed neo-Nazi father poses incarceration challenge”. This is a thirteen years old boy who lived in Riverside County killed his father when he was only ten years old! I think it was a terrible morning on May 1, 2011. This boy use the gun to kill his neo-Nazi dad on the couch in their living room. His father named Jeffrey Hall was the West Coast leader in the neo-Nazi organization, so hid father always beat this boy and he also wanted to kill his kids and wife. I think because under this kind of family environment, this boy does not have parents' love, so he may had considerable, pervasive and complicated disabilities. The boy also told to attorneys he killed his father because he want to protect his family. As a young teenage, he does not have enough knowledge about Juvenile Justice and basic law, so the only way he come up with is to kill his father. However, this article also said that this boy cannot be released into the community and he cannot change. This boy changed schools for nine times, and the reason is “violent propensities”. He wanted to kill his teacher by using the telephone cord. When he was young, his grandmother also cannot take good care of him because he is out of control. I think this boy had “violent propensities” when he was young, and then under the influence of his father, he became out of control when he was ten years old. In the end, he killed his father and......

Journals Unit 5 and 6

...Unit 5: Journal In most cartoons from the Golden Age of American Animation, characters tend to stay the same with each new cartoon (no lessons are learned, no knowledge or plot lines are carried on to the next cartoon.)  However, the locations are often wildly different.  With each new short, Bugs Bunny might be in the Wild West, in the midsts of a Wagnerian opera-land, or in outer space.  Using for reference the last three episodes you have viewed from your chosen tv series, do the characters change and grow, or do they stay the same between episodes?   Are there reoccurring locations, or is there a new setting for the show each week?  If your show is different in these ways from Golden Age cartoons, why do you think that is?   In the last three episodes of my tv show, Scooby-Doo, the characters don’t change or grow in their characters but they do become more eager and impatient in finding more mysteries and getting them solved. For example, in one of the episodes Velma, Daphne, Fred, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are all sitting around Fred’s house bored and ready for another mystery to land in their hands. Velma says “I’m so bored, we haven’t had a good mystery in I don’t know when.” This is usually the case in most episodes. The gang is anxiously waiting for another mystery to solve when one comes straight into their hands. In these episodes each mystery is occurring in different locations. One is occurring in Gatorsburg, the second in their hometown, and another on the......

Journal of Supply Chain Management, 45(2), 75-93. Retrieved from Liberty University BUSI 613 September 24, 2014 In order for companies to stay competitive in the dynamic, fast-paced, and ever-changing business world; they must stay current and find ways to stay ahead of their competitors. In other words, that “innovativeness may help logistics service providers (LSPs) differentiate themselves from their competitors” (Wallenburg, 2009). Customers can always take their business to a competitor who is offering a better, cheaper product or service, as well as better customer service. Outsourcing, or the contracting out of a business process to another party, has become a staple in 21st century business and logistics. Not only has outsourcing become a mainstay for companies, it has become a necessity; and customer loyalty is sometimes dependent on the innovation of logistics outsourcing. However, for the logistics outsourcing relationship to work smoothly, there needs to be constant proactive (rather than reactive) improvements made to maintain customer loyalty. This article links the level of customer loyalty directly to the innovation of logistics outsourcing by aiming to reduce the research gaps concerning......

...1) Globalization has led to a more competitively intense economic and geopolitical environment. This environment manifests in opportunities and threats both economic and political. Some have said there is no “geography” in this current global environment. Some issues for supply chains in a global environment are: 1) more economic   and political risk; 2) shorter product lifecycles and 3) the blurring of traditional organization boundaries. Another issue is global competition for sources of supply and demand.   Traditionally underdeveloped countries such as China and India have become enabled and can participate in the global economy much more readily. Developing companies such as BRIC and VISTA have developed technology and have been outsourced to these countries. Technology has played a major part in time and distance being compressed. Collaboration opportunities with individuals and companies throughout the globe have increased.   Flow of commerce is multidirectional. 2) Mass retailers like Walmart have been growing larger and larger. These organizations develop, design, produce, promote, and distribute their own products are using their size and power to impact the supply chain to their own advantage. Consumer product companies are giving special privileges to these large retailers and offering customized distribution services; allowing them to run more efficiently and more effectively. 3) The impact of the consumer is much more direct for supply chains......

Reflective Journal 1

...Reflective Journal 1 In my first experience working with Liz on the floor, I immediately notice that she has a lot going on. With all her responsibilities, you can definitely see the need for excellent time management and delegation skills. She is responsible for opening a new nursing floor, but is still in charge of running the floor she is currently in charge of. So she constantly needs to be aware of her time management skills, to know when and where she needs to be and at what time. She also has to take into consideration how long a task will take so she does not overbook herself causing others to fall behind on their schedules. According to the textbook, a good leader is able to time mange through the simplest and fastest route, but allowing themselves to continue to be accessible and not tied down (Yoder-Wise, 2011, p. 45). To be an effective leader in opening the new unit, she is able to recognize who is able to help her and delegate appropriately. In my clinical experience, she was able to delegate task to the group that helped make her current floor more efficient (e.g. organizing filing cabinets) and to help move her new floor forward as well (e.g. making signs). A research study emphasizes the importance of time management, and how it is not only a problematic area in nursing, but that it also affects patient care (Waterworth, 2003). Time management is complex with many factors to consider such as work environment and personality. References Waterworth,......

...Jasmine Garretson SPE-226 October 3, 2015 Ceri Alhorn Journal 1 Main Points: 1) Parent Involvement is very important in special education because it helps students get the right services that they need have academic success. Teachers and parents communication really can help special needs children progress to their greatest potential. 2) IDEA is Individuals with Disabilities Education Act that helps special education receive funding to support special needs children. Also special needs children are entitled to meets standards of general education curriculum. (Harman, 2014). 3) Cultural and linguistic diversity can have an impact on education because students can be placed in special education just because they speak a different language other than English. Just because a student speaks a different doesn’t mean they should be placed in special needs. 4) Differentiate Instruction is very important and good to use in the classroom because there are many students who have different needs and disabilities. Now that special needs children are able to be a part of general education differentiate instruction is important to use in the classroom. (Drew, 2014). 5) Assistive Technology can be very helpful to students with disabilities and also good for students in general education as well. Technology is a great to use for students with different learning styles. Application: In my classroom I will definitely involve parents because they can help the......

...negotiations, the counterpart proved to be a bit intimidated but laughed after I foolishly shared the information about my savings for a long waited vacation. Personal Information Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any information out of the counterpart. I would have had the opportunity to get to know the seller if I didn't have a closed posture and take control of the negotiations. Concepts Review (how did exercise relate to lecture and text concepts) This exercise emphasized a lot on the Information phase in the negotiation process. The more the counterpart knew about me the more I began to realize I needed to shut-up. There were no hidden assumptions, empathy or major alternatives from the counterpart other than getting a loan at a 5% interest rate if I needed more money. In the end we both collaborated and tried to meet halfway so we both didn't have a large amount of losses. The counterpart didn't get his asking price and didn't go too much over my target price. Initially Expected I initially expected warranties to be included with the sale, and the exhaust system to be replaced but I was too worried about not going over my target price rather than gaining benefits of the warranty that might have been included with the sale. Next Time What I would do different in a similar future situation is negotiate more towards some benefits that could have been included in the sale of the Jetta because in the long run it would have saved me money on future replacements......
