The Cosby Show was a great show for African Americans in the early 80’s. I love one particular character from the show it was “Clif Huxtable” played by comedian Bill Cosby. The show most people thought it was not “real” enough. The reason most people will think this is because of “Cosby” family life on the show. Cliff and his wife Claire Huxtable were very successful, educated people. Cliff was a doctor and his wife was a successful lawyer. The two raised 5 children who needed much guidance and advice as any children would. The show was very interesting and funny but was the joke on how the whole series was played out? I don’t believe so, that made me adore and look up to Cliff Huxtable. He was fair, down to earth, and made his fatherly love & support for his children to broaden and make them choose for themselves. Bill Cosby character was the father of all fathers; he supported his wife and watch football on Sunday nights. He was still the all American dad, in one if my favorite episodes, it was when Theo wanted to stay out later.
Theo: Dad, will it be too much to ask if U stay 30 minutes after curfew?
Cliff: Well, Theo if I let you stay 30 minutes after your curfew, then you may ask for an increase in your allowance, and then you’ll want to borrow the car.
Theo: Okay Dad, would a “no Theo” be too much to ask?
I loved that episode and even use some of Cliff’s parenting when dealing with my own children situation.
Bill Cosby always seen himself as the character on the show but often felt that Cliff wasn’t hard enough on the kids. I too felt that Claire had the hardest job when it came to disciplining the children. There were no judgment about the character other than he was successful.

...Running head: THE CONCEPT OF ADAPTATION 1 Sensory Adaptation Experiment Aspects of Psychology American InterContinental University November 20, 2013 THE CONCEPT OF ADAPTATION 2 Process and Results of Each Experiment Experiment 1 with Sandpaper- After rubbing my index finger on the very coarse sandpaper a few times, I would rate the coarseness on a scale of 7 (very coarse). This experiment gave me a tingling feeling in my finger. After a minute or so from resting my index finger, I ran the same index finger on the sandpaper and found that it wasn’t as coarse as the first time. I would rate its coarseness at a 3 which led my finger to not react to the paper as much as the first time. So I feel that my senses adapted to the coarseness of the sandpaper. Experiment 2 with Sugar Water and Fresh Water- I took one cup and put two teaspoons of sugar in with fresh water and stirred it. In the second cup I only put fresh water in it. I then took the cup with sugar water in it and took a sip and swished it around in my mouth. I noticed that I could feel my taste buds were stimulating but after a few seconds they became less stimulated. When I had tasted the fresh water and swished it around, I noticed that I tasted a hint of salt. It surprised me because I wasn’t expecting to taste salt......

...The Healthcare Organization Colorado Technical University HCM367-1304A-01 Phase 3 - Individual Project Lately, there has been an increase in patients being diagnosed with chronic debilitating diseases here at the healthcare facility, and I believe that Senior Management, Departments Heads, Supervisors, and Stakeholders should come together and discuss a few topics concerning chronic diseases and the aging population. The crisis is clear. Chronic diseases are having a major impact on healthcare. Chronic conditions, unlike acute diseases, cannot be cured and can last for years, limit activitis, and require continuing medical attention. In the United States, chronic illnesses impact millions of people and are the leading cause of sickness, disability, and death. As more and more people age and develop chronic illnesses the number of doctors and nurses needed will go up. Therefore, the availability of well-trained doctors and nurses is imperative in order to provide the best possible care. By communicating and collaborating with doctors, nurses, and the community to treat patients and their illnesses we can possibly cut costs, make programs for patients more readily available, and help the patient improve their overall health. In preparation for this meeting I researched Alzheimer’s disease which is a major issue affecting the aging population.

The contemporary management technique chosen for MEDA is the use of enterprise risk management (ERM). Rationale for selecting enterprise risk management MEDA is a very large global organization and as such it is “important for global organizations to think about country-specific treatment of risks,” and to gain an understanding of how to control these risks in a manner that will allow them to align risks “with their business strategy, develop an overall approach to how they define,......

Simon states that consumers make a decision on products based on why a manufacture or company develops their idea versus on the end result (Sinek, 2009). Based on the lecture of Simon the company that I am thinking of developing will be based on the passion of the customer service industry that I believe in. Upon researching on businesses that utilize ideas that my company will use, I found that we have three ideas which are: Create the Context, define and Train to a Standard; a Common Language for Your Organization, Design Customer Service Training Focused on Attitudes and Behaviors (Johnson, 1998). The type of business that I am planning on launching is in the customer service industry. The reason I have decided to enter this venture is because many companies that would like develop a strong customer service based employees, would have to obtain the proper training in order to meet set goals. The main reason why I decided to choose this venture is because I have over ten years of customer service. I have worked in the banking industry. In the banking industry I started as a bank teller then being promoted to customer service, then to a call center. The banking industry is a very tough working......

Individual Project

...Individual Project Since childhood I have been fond of scents. Perfumes fascinate me, how one scent sets a personality and gives each person their own distinct smell. I truly wish to be a perfumist one day. The career I believe I will most likely have in the forthcoming future will be the owner of a small perfume and cosmetics business. The idea of the business is to let the customers pick their own scents and mix and match with other preferable aromas, therefore creating unique perfumes for themselves. Section 1: The leadership requirements for a business owner would be being able to balance micro and macro management. The skills that are required are sales experience and customer service. In order to please the customer one has to have sufficient knowledge in engaging with customers. Once you are able to engage enough with your customers you can build trust and after you have built trust, your sales will reach heights. Section 2: Strengths that my leadership would have, would be the balance between micro and macro management. Such as time, inventory and schedule. The weakness would be the atmosphere, how the upper management controls the staff. Sales quota not being reached is also a weakness. To over come the weakness, many different methods would be used such as incentives that would come out from the profit of the inventory sold. Section 3: Career is a lifelong relationship and to me a career holds the ability...
