Workshops and seminars are effective tools a consultant can utilize resources in assisting others to solve a common problem within a professional community (Brown, Pryzwansky, & Schulte, 2011). They are also methods to promote the business and sale your services. In so doing, engage these professionals in a variety of formats. For example, the consultant may use the traditional face-to-face consultation meetings. For example, other methods may integrate the use of technology, such as web based workshops or through telephone interviews. As a result, expand their business using a cost effective approach. Therefore, create working environments in innovative, creative, and productive manner. Thereby build relationships between the consultant and the local community, nationally and possibly internationally. Berson (2002) gave an example of holding workshops. The author divided the group into five groups to develop teams. As a result, develop dependency on each team member. Results of the effectiveness increased as the teams determined that together they “were more than the sum of the parts (Berson, 2002, p. 205)”. This is similar to the AHAA workshops I have attended this past year. The current consultant is from a Texas university. It is a grant providing training over a two year period. I came to this school this year so this is my school’s second year. AHAA is a professional development training that includes two years of participating in workshops developed by the Arizona Dept. of Education. The goal of this program is to assist school teams in broadening their understanding and knowledge base of various accommodations and modifications for classroom behavior management and instruction. Each school has 5 representatives and a leader from the Dept of Ed. and is represented by a school’s general and special educators, and administrators The goal…...

It Consultation

...IT Consultation for MR. Green Mr. Green wants to upgrade Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate. I have researched this upgrade and will be describing concerns and options so Mr. Green’s business will be more efficient and capable of expanding in time. From the information you gave me Mr. Green, it appears that your stand-alone machines are capable of running Windows 7 Ultimate. It requires 1GHz processor, 2GB RAM (for 64 bit) and 20GB available disk space. My concern for the future would be to look into getting more RAM as you install different programs and have many applications running at the same time. Attached are graphs that will take you step by step in preparing to upgrade as well as the steps for using Windows Anytime Upgrade. Running the upgrade advisor will ensure that your systems are capable and compatible of running Windows 7 Ultimate. It will check your hardware, search for updates, check your applications, disk space, ensures computer functionality, also performs a full system backup and allows you to purchase Windows 7. The next graph walks you through Windows Anytime Upgrade which I believe will work for you since your systems already have windows 7 on them. The graph has you click start, control panel, system and security tab, and Windows Anytime Upgrade. When you get to that window, just click on go online to choose the windows 7 edition you would like and then click the buy button. It will then walk you through the install process. You may......

...HW205: Vitamins, Herbs and Nutritional Supplements Seminar Option 2 1.) Define the differences between the following terms: a) Natural Medicine vs. Biomedicine Natural Medicine is considered alternative medicine, which is any medical therapy that is not a synthetic drug or surgery. Natural medicine is the science and art of preventing, curing, or alleviating ill health by using treatment modalities in harmony with the laws of nature. Natural medicine cares for and treats individuals not disease entities. Biomedicine refers to conventional medicine. Biomedicine is based on the biological understanding of the organism. There is emphasis on disease and high technology rather than on health and individualized care. b) Plant vs. Drugs Plant is something that is grown in nature that is natural. A drug is something that is chemically processed in order to create the substance that is wanted. c) Vitamins vs. Minerals Vitamins are organic compounds that release energy from food, develop red blood cells, help in blood clotting and help in maintaining healthy skin, eye, and hair.

Workshop

...The Workshop I attended on July 24th was called “The Graduate’s Guide to Financial Success” and my instructor was Brenda Williams. Out of the whole thing, I think the most important subject that was important for me would be building credit. She mentioned that we should start building credit by our the beginning of our senior year, which I was semi-surprised about. We have to learn how to start becoming financially independent, and learning how to overcome that challenge. Not only is building good credit a must, but it will help you qualify for loans, auto insurance, rental applications, cell phone plans, and it can even affect whether you get a job. She listed out steps, but didn’t go into much detail on how we can build our good credit. The fist step is to become an authorized user on your parent’s account, which I’m currently in the process of doing. The reason for being an authorized user on my dads account is considered “piggybacking”, when my dad has good credit my credit gets a boost. For some, this is the only choice when it comes to building credit. The second step for me would be to open up my own credit card, if I can provide proof of income. Full responsibility will fall on me then. We also learned why good credit is important. Lenders, employers, landlords, and insurance companies all use your credit report or your credit score to decide if they want to approve your application. First off, having too much credit debt will leave a negative mark on your report and......

...Seminar Report Security Issues in MANETs Abhishek Seth 04329001 November12 ,2004 Abstract Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET) has become an exciting and important technology in recent years because of the rapid proliferation of wireless devices. A mobile adhoc network consists of mobile nodes that can move freely in an open environment. Communicating nodes in a Mobile Adhoc Network usually seek the help of other intermediate nodes to establish communication channels. In such an environment, malicious intermediate nodes can be a threat to the security of conversation between mobile nodes. The security experience from the Wired Network world is of little use in Wireless Mobile Ad hoc networks, due to some basic differences between the two Networks. Therefore, some novel solutions are required to make Mobile Adhoc Network secure. problems of secuirity in MANETs. Further sections deals with some of the solutions to these problems. Finally Section 10 concludes this article. 2 2.1 Mobile Adhoc Networks Introduction 1 Introduction Mobile Adhoc Network (MANET) is a collection of independent mobile nodes that can communicate to each other via radio waves.

...Darrellynn Tapp HS210-MOM Unit 9 Seminar option 2 K. Drennen Kaplan University What are some effective ways to improve employee morale? When improving employee morale it first starts with the employee. Recognizing the value of your employee is very important. You must know that they are just as important as you are. They can be replaced but then you are dealing with the cost of advertising and pulling in someone new. Letting the employee know that they are appreciated. Just a simple few words such as thanks or a job well done will help increase the morale among employees. Giving out perks, sponser social events, have special lunches as well as cash bonuses, even pinics for the employees and their families. Having a great work environment can improve employee morale. A dull office setting lacking light and color can cause depression and the lack of motivation. Putting some spark into the office can lighten up employees spirit. Make sure the values and ethics of the company are of those employees can take pride in. Most employees in the work force want to work for a company they can trust and believe in.

Public Consultation in the Management of Archaeological Sites

...how seeking active indigenous participation may not always be appreciated by the community is the implementation of the National Museum of the American Indian Act (NMAIA) in 1989, and the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) in 1990 by the United States government. Although there is extensive evidence that records the NMAI’s efforts to make the participation of the first groups central to the process of design and conceptualisation (Ostrowitz 2005, 417), these are often seen, by insiders and outsiders alike, to be a grossly simplified and romanticised representation of Native communities across the continent. Native American professor Jacki Thompson Rand recounts her eye-opening experience at a community-based consultation during her stint with the NMAI, when the exclamation of a Native elder “we’ve been trying to educate the visitors for five hundred years; how long will it take to educate the visitors?” (Rand 2007) prompted her to re-evaluate the museum’s methodology as being little more than a rehashed colonial exercise in cultural freezing. Fine-Dare criticises NAGPRA for putting on a misleading appearance of restitution, as its implementation has failed to make the process of repatriation any easier for the Natives, and has instead classified the indigenous groups as ‘others’ and foreigners on their own land, who need to be dealt with through formal legislation (Fine-Dare 2002). Therefore we can conclude that just as generalisations like......

Seminar

...Seminar is a play by Theresa Rebeck that premiered on Broadway in 2011. It follows four aspiring writers who pay for a supposed great writer – Leonard – to come and critique their writing weekly. Each writer is their own personality. There is the rich, uppity, nerd-type (Kate), the quieter, reserved, and talented one (Martin), the ditzy, manipulative, and sexy one (Izzy), and the extravagant, smart, and connected one (Douglas). Leonard is depicted as brash, rude, cruel, and unpardonable. The story goes on to where Martin and Leonard connect and see their similarities and work together to better themselves. A theme that immediately jumps at you is conflict. Throughout the play, there is conflict every other conversation. High tension exists between most characters, especially between those of different sexes. Examples are Kate and Leonard throughout most of the play and Martin and Douglas (though one-sided) in scene one, two, and so on. Another theme that is prevalent is the idea that sex sells and that sex will get you everywhere you want to be. This is shown when Izzy writes a story that Leonard deems sexy, and they proceed to pursue a sexual relationship. It could also be interpreted that sexism could be a theme when sex is not available. When Kate submits a story, being defined as a “prude,” Leonard is bored before ending the first sentence, and is bored with her immediately every time following. That is, until she submits something under the guise of a transvestite...

...Unit 3: Seminar Assignment MT480-01: Corporate Finance Alicia Turner Kaplan University Professor: S. Lacewell January 21, 2012 Seminar Assignment Unit 3 1.) What effects do changing interest rates have on bonds? The effects of changing interest rates on bonds would be the bond prices. If the interest rates tend to increase then the bond value will go lower and if the interest decreases then the bond value would be higher. In a case of purchasing a bond, the bond starts off with a fixed rate until it starts to mature. For example, if i were to purchase a bond at $5,000 with a 5% rate for 10 years, if the interest goes up to 6% then the value of the bond that I purchased would decrease and it would be beneficial for me to sell that bond at a discounted price. 2.) How are stocks prices related to expected dividends? Stock prices are related to expected dividends due the return that a person would receive on their stock. If the stock prices increase then your return would also increase. If the stock decreases then the expected dividend would remain the same as when the stock was purchased. 3.) How does the P/E ratio relate to the value of a stock? The P/E ratio is related to the value of stock due to the fact that it lets an investor/buyer know how much they are willing to pay per dollar of earnings. For instance, if a P/E ratio is 40 it would tell us that an investor is willing to pay $40 for every $1 of earnings that is generated by that......

Racism Consultation

...Racism Consultation: Basics which all Social Workers need when dealing with racism in children Racism is an issue in which many people shy away from when it arises. Most people feel they are not racist, however in later discussion many racist ways of thinking may be divulged. Racism needs to be addressed, not avoided. Children need to learn how detrimental racism can be to themselves and others. The home and school environments are the best places to begin to address the issue of racism. It is the school's responsibility as well as the parent's to see to it that differences are accepted and not devalued. Antiracist education is also a very helpful approach in reducing racism in schools. This essay will go into detail about how racism is taught to children, characteristics of a racist child or a victim of racism, as well as techniques to prevent or reduce racism in children. Ms. Carlson, the middle school counselor, was approached with an issue that involves two of her students. It appears that Billy has been making racial comments to Tommy, an African American boy. Ms. Carlson is aware of different schools participating in antiracist and multicultural education, however their school does not incorporate this type of teaching. The school is located in a conservative town and Ms. Carlson feels that this type of education will not be welcomed in the school district. She has asked me to speak with Billy and Tommy to see what factors play into a child who has...
