Wala nang higit na mas sasaya pa sa taong abot- kamay na ang kanyang pangarap. Simula bata, mayroon na tayong sariling mga pangarap, maging doctor, abogado, artista, bumbero at marami pang iba. At habang tayo’y lumalaki, unti-unti na tayong humakabang tungo sa pagtupad ng ating mga pangarap. Ngunit, papaano kung may mga bagay na humahadlang sa iyong mga mithiin? Kaya mo bang ipaglaban ito hanggang sa huli?

Si Mark Joseph ay mahusay sa pag-likha ng iba’t- ibang mga obra gaya na lamang ng pagpipinta, pagguhit, paggawa ng mga kasuotan, at paglikha ng iba’t- ibang mga akda. Siya ang bunso sa kanilang pamilya kaya alaga siya ng kanyang ina. Sa kabila ng lahat hindi lumaki sa layaw, nanatili siyang masunurin, tumutulong sa mga gawaing bahay, at higit sa lahat ay may mabuting puso. Bata pa lamang siya ay gusto na niyang makalikha ng marami pang mga obra, kaya nagsisikap siya sa pag-aaral at nage-ensayo ukol sa kanyang talento. Ngunit, may isang balitang gumibal sa kanilang pamilya, nang siya ay magtungo sa doctor upang ipasuri ang kanyang lumalaking paa, napagalaman nilang may kanser siya sa buto at kailangan nang mapagamot upang hindi lumala. Tumungo sila sa Maynila upang doon magpagamot at pansamantalang nanirahan sa asawa ng kanyang kapatid. Hindi naglaon ay bumalik din sila sa probinsya kung saan sila nakatira at doon na lamang ipinagpatuloy ang paggagamot. Sa kasamaang palad, umating sa punto na kinakailangan nang tanggalin ang kanyang kaliwang binti dahil nanganganib nang kumalat ang kanyang sakit sa iba pang bahagi ng kanyang katawan. Nawalan man siyang binti at huminto sa pag-aaral nananatili pa rin siyang matatag at pilit na lumalaban sa sakit na walang kasiguraduhan sa paglunas.

Dahil sa kanyang karamdaman mas nagkaroon siya ng inspirasyon upang gumawa muli ng mga obra. Nang bumalik sila sa Maynila upang magpa- chemotherapy ay nakapag-sulat siya ng…...

Feature Paper

...Alison Chastain Feature Paper: Final Draft Paul Mielke A devastating illness left this courageous Texan teenager wondering if the sport he once starred in was lost to him forever. Until, his favorite quarterback gives back to this big time Baylor fan the joy of playing football. A few years ago, Paul Mielke was the fastest player and the star quarterback of the Katy, Texas Youth Football League. “I knew I wanted to play professional football from a young age,” Paul said. Growing up in a family full of Baylor University alumni, Paul dreamed to one day become a Baylor Bear and play quarterback for the well-known football team just like his hero, Robert Griffin III. However, life for the 13-year-old aspiring athlete wasn’t going as planned. Paul’s decreasing health was relevant when the once active teenager became weak and exhausted. In July 2011, Paul was hospitalized and diagnosed with a life threatening heart condition known as Coronary Artery Disease. “It was really hard accepting that I will never be just an average kid again like my friends and because of this disease I’m always going to be different,” Paul said. For the talented athlete, the news that he wouldn’t be able to play football this coming season was the hardest part. This was just the start of Paul’s long battle. In October 2011, doctors informed Paul that the only way of surviving his stage of heart failure was to receive a heart transplant. Around the same time, a dual-threat......

...and Docters et al. (2004, p. 16) refer to value-based pricing as ‘‘one of the best pricing methods’’. Practitioners have also recognised the advantages of value-based pricing strategies. Several companies have successfully adopted such strategies. These include pharmaceutical companies such as Sanofi-Aventis, information technology companies such as SAP and Vendavo, wireless internet service providers such as the Australian company Xone, airlines such as Lufthansa, vehicle manufacturers such as BMW, and biotech companies such as Tigris Pharmaceuticals. The increasing endorsement of customer value-based strategies among academics and practitioners is based on a general recognition that the keys to sustained profitability lie in the essential features of customer value-based pricing, including understanding the sources of value for customers; designing products, services, and solutions that meet customers’ needs; setting prices as a function of value; and implementing consistent pricing policies. Despite the obvious benefits of customer value-based approaches to pricing, a review of the literature suggests that these methods still play a relatively minor role in pricing strategies. It is apparent that various obstacles must lie in the way of a more widespread implementation of value-based approaches to pricing. The purposes of the present study are to identify these obstacles and to suggest guidelines for overcoming them. The next section of the paper presents the theoretical......

The item being copied is called the object. For example, you could copy an Excel worksheet (the object) that is located in an Excel workbook (the source document) to a Word document (the destination document). That is, an object can be copied from a source document to a destination document. You can use one of three techniques to copy objects from one program to another: copy and paste, embed, or link. * Copy and paste. When you copy an object and then paste it, the object becomes part of the destination document. You edit a pasted object using editing features of the destination program. For example, when you select an Excel worksheet in an Excel workbook, click the Copy button on Excel’s Home tab, and then click the Paste button on Word’s Home tab, each row in the Excel Worksheet become a separate paragraph in the Word document and each column in separated by a tab character. * Embed.

...Americans Infected with Ebola to U.S. Against the wishes of many terrified Americans, two American aid workers infected with the Ebola Virus while in Western Africa, have been transported to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment. Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly are the first two Ebola patients ever brought to the U.S. for Liberia. Dr. Brantly, arrived at Emory University hospital on Saturday and was immediately brought to the hospital’s specialized isolation unit. Yesterday Writebol arrived. There is no known vaccination or cure for the deadly disease, the two victims were both given an experimental, U.S. manufactured drug while in Liberia before being transported back to the United States. The drug was recently developed and is still so new that it has never before been tested on humans. Both patients are showing significant improvement, but are still being closely monitored by doctors. This situation has left many Americans feeling uneasy and fearful of the risk of the disease spreading throughout the US. The CDC has received numerous angry emails and calls in opposition of bringing these two back onto American soil. Businessman Donald Trump even launched a twitter campaign "Our country has enough problems. Send the doctors to Liberia. Send the doctors to West Africa to take care of our people. It's one thing. But don't let them in," said Trump, in an interview with Fox News earlier this week. Nonetheless, many others see these two as heroes......

...ENC 1101 13 October 2014 Becoming the Seminole Athlete Coming to FSU as a student athlete is a life changing experience as you shift from being under your parents into being on your own and managing yourself. You get to start early as a baseball player so that you can become acclimated with class and morning workouts. You are taken on a weeklong athlete orientation called Summer Bridge a week before summer classes begin. You along with other freshman athletes get to become familiar with the campus and what is expected out of an athlete here at Florida State. During the week, you are grouped with people from other sports so that you can get to know other people besides your teammates. In your group you do small bonding exercises and team work activities. One activity was a campus scavenger hunt where you have to take pictures in front of certain buildings and this allows you to get familiar with your new school. Summer is an easier adjustment from high school to college compared to fall. During summer you are required to take only two classes and have only early morning workouts. Having the afternoon to yourself is a good feeling because there is not much free time in the fall being a student athlete. Being a baseball player, you live in Whitehall Apartments which is right off campus. Living in the apartments with three other teammates and right next door to four others, you get to bond easily with each other. Transitioning from having your laundry done for you and......

...Three Features That Will Enhance Your Career Paulina Banos Grand Canyon University: UNV-504-PEO101 10/21/2014 Three Features That Will Enhance Your Career Venturing out to the real world after graduation can be exciting and scary all at the same time. One is stepping foot into a world where theory is replaced by practice, and where one is held accountable for their actions. This paper will explain how implementing three features: servant leadership, innovation and hybrid entrepreneurship, can enhance your career and future success. Servant Leadership Servant leadership is a style of management that inspires to bring out ethical and moral behavior in an organizational setting. This kind of leadership style focuses on the beneficial outcome of their employees instead of the self-interest of the leader. In addition, servant leaders try to accommodate their employees in ways where they can succeed in completing their goals, function effectively in the workplace and have a sense of well being amongst their peers and supervisors. (Rivkin, Diestel, & Schmidt, 2014, 52-55). Practicing Servant Leadership Stressors and strain found in the workplace can cause great harm to an individual. According to Rivkin et al., job strain can be caused by job ambiguity and emotional dissonance. Employees have reported that uncertainty of job functions and the lack of genuine expressed emotions from job roles can cause the feeling of “burnout” (Rivkin et al., 2014). In the......

...and none of these assignments will be marked. Furthermore, these students may be penalised or subjected to University disciplinary proceedings. PLAGIARISM: VERY IMPORTANT! While you are strongly encouraged to become familiar with a broad range of ideas, be very vigilant regarding plagiarism. Any idea or argument that you incorporate in your essays, if drawn from elsewhere, must be clearly attributed to its source (and this, very importantly, includes Internet sources). Remember that plagiarism is a serious offence and, while often committed inadvertently, will result in zero per cent being awarded for submitted work. Please read the detailed explanation given below very carefully: * If you copy something out of a book, an article, a website or another document without acknowledging its source, and pass it off as your own, that constitutes plagiarism. In effect, you are stealing something that belongs to someone else, dishonestly pretending that it is your own. * If you paraphrase material (i.e. change the wording slightly) or use ideas or a line of argument without acknowledging the original source, this also constitutes plagiarism and the same severe penalty will apply. * It is not enough to cite sources in the bibliography at the end of your essay. You must refer to these in the body of your essay, in brackets, next to every statement that is based on borrowed formulations or ideas. * The Disciplinary Code for Students (2004) is......

...This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Go to: ------------------------------------------------- Abstract The ileosigmoid knot is an uncommon but life-threatening cause of closed loop intestinal obstruction. Its treatment is different from a simple volvulus in that it has to be operated upon immediately. Preoperative CT scan diagnosis and prompt treatment can lead to a good outcome. Findings of simultaneous ileal and sigmoid ischemia with non-ischemic colon interposed in between should, in an appropriate clinical setting, indicate this condition. The presence of the whirl sign, medially deviated distal descending colon and cecum, and mesenteric vascular structures from the superior mesenteric vessels that converge toward the sigmoid colon on CT scan help clinch the diagnosis. Keywords: Compound volvulus, ileosigmoid knot, intestinal obstruction Go to: ------------------------------------------------- Introduction Ileosigmoid knot (also known as compound volvulus) is an unusual and rare cause of intestinal obstruction.[1,2] In this condition, loops of ileum wrap around the base of a redundant sigmoid colon to form a “knot”. The condition progresses rapidly to gangrene, so early diagnosis and operative treatment are vital. CT scan plays a major role in the evaluation of any acute abdomen.[3] We describe the CT scan features of this rare condition, the awareness of which can help achieve a preoperative diagnosis.

Gough Whitlam Feature Article

...Gough Whitlam Gough Whitlam Did Gough Whitlam impact Australians lives when he implemented policies? Did he contribute to the post war development? At the time he was prime minister, writes Richard Holt. Prime Minister Gough Whitlam came to power at the end of 1972. He’s main objective I believe was to make Australia well known. Whitlam had already reformed the Labor Party's policy platform prior to coming to power. While he was prime minister he introduced many policies to do with problems Australia was facing. He introduced free university education and ended conscription. Edward Gough Whitlam was born in Melbourne in 1916. After graduating from Sydney University he served as a navigator in the Air Force during the Second World War. Whitlam entered federal parliament in 1952 by winning the seat. He kept this seat for 23 years, through several elections. He finally became a Leader of the Opposition in 1967. Whitlam was Campaigning the slogan “It’s time” and successfully became Prime minister in December 1972. The Whitlam was serious about passing legislation and in 1973 203 bills became laws. Some of these include the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Act 1975 (Cth), which established the means to review the decisions of government ministers and officials; The Trade Practices Act 1974), which made sure consumers were protected against faulty products and misleading and deciptive conduct by sellers or manufacturers.
