Fraternities and Sororities: Secret Society
While researching Fraternity I found that Fraternal orders practicing secrecy have been known to exist for thousands of years, as far back as the Egyptian Mystery Schools in 1500 BC before it is a kind of organization that is allied to the Catholic Church. The development of modern fraternal is now stretched out especially on college campuses. It is divided into groups namely: social, service, professional and honorary. It is known in the society as organization that exerts a physical force so as to injure or abuse a person or a group of people associated or formally organized for a common purpose. However many people are still engaged to join fraternities because they think about the advantage that can give them benefits for their own sake, for short for them it is worth it.
Our goal in this paper is to show why many people are being addicted in being a part of this kind of organization even if they know what are the negative issues involved here. To achieve this goal, we’ve arranged our paper into five categories; Theories about the topic where we have the motivation theories and how frat started in the Philippines, Current issue about the topic, Analysis about the issue, Conclusion where we involve all information that we gathered and References.
Group 5-2
Theories About Human Motivation. What is there about human being that continues to make membership in fraternal orders appealing? This is really a question about human motives. Why, indeed, do people join fraternal orders? For the sake argument only, let's propose that men are by nature inclined to socialize, that their intelligence compels them to live in community. Recent evidence tends to confirm that this is so, and furthermore that the source of…...

Econimics Supply and Demand

...Supply and Demand Katelyn Cranmer XECO/212 March 25, 2012 Supply and Demand Supply is the amount and type of real estate available for sale or rent at differing price levels in a given real estate market.  Demand is the amount and type of real estate desired for purchase or rent in a given market at a given period of time. In the real estate market there are factors that affect the supply and demand. One of the factors that affect the supply is the availability of loans and financing to build new homes. When the market crashed the availability of loans and financing of a home became very scarce. Because of the availability of home loans and financing it has made the supply of new homes go down, with no loans or financing there is no money to be able to afford land to build on or to pay a skilled contractor. When there is no availability for new homes the demand seems to be higher. When the supply is affected in the housing market the prices seem to be lower there for there is a higher demand for house, because it has now become affordable to buy. However, one of the factors that can affect the demand is the price of a new home along with the consumer’s income. When consumers are looking into buying a house everything is based off the amount of income that they bring in. If the consumer’s income is to low then they will not be able to purchase their new house. Because the prices of a new home seems to be relatively more than people can afford with the current......

Hovey & Beard Company

...Katelyn O’Connor Week 3 1. Discuss how the principles of job design and reinforcement theory apply to the performance problems at the Hovey and Beard Company. Principals of Job design exhibited at the Hovey and Beard Company, a production company who made toys. Toy painters were experiencing the following problems: New painters learned at a slower pace (making the other painters lose money on rewards per piece) the assembly line hooks moved too fast, painters blamed management. Incentive pay wasn’t adequate for workers and it was too hot working so close to the drying ovens. One painter, who worked with the company the longest, was appointed by other painters to address their concerns with the supervisor. Supervisor listened and worked closely with painters to address their concerns; he worked well and incorporated the goal setting theory with the painters. Changing the work design of the painters work station, management used a positive reinforcement theory to make the painters part of the solution. Management installed fans, installing a timer on the hook device: fast, medium and slow, letting the workers choose the time of day to change the speed. Managers keep the incentives going with the learning bonus and the per piece reward. Also, update meetings were being held to keep everyone on the same page. Production was 50% higher. Other employees felt the inequity in the company, they were skilled labors and not making as much money as the painters, with this......

...Karitza Justiniano Project 1, PSY E202 March 1, 2011 I’d like to introduce you to Katelyn Lyanne Martinez. She is a three year old little girl who lives in a house with her mother, father, and older brother. I have chosen to observe Katelyn because she is my daughter. My observation takes place over the course of her life. For this assignment, I will focus on Katelyn today but will revert to previous experiences for specific developmental milestones. There is a seven year difference between Katelyn and her brother, Krystian. This difference has greatly influenced her motor skill development. I cannot say that this was the sole reason for her quick learning, but for as long as I can remember she was trying to keep up with her brother. She crawled by seven months and pulled herself up in the crib and playpen by nine months. Katelyn walked before her first birthday. If Krystian walked into her room, she pulled herself up and cried to get out to follow him around. Mimicking and modeling her older brother has also increased her vocabulary exponentially. She has been speaking in complete sentences since before the age of 2. Katelyn is very animated and uses her hands and expressions to emphasize her feelings or point of view. People thought she was unnaturally small in size because they assumed she was older. Her social development, although not......

... A conflict, which I encountered with one of my best friends (Katelyn), occurred in May 2012, when she stopped talking to me because I couldn’t attend her birthday party one night that she had at a club because I had an exam the next day and needed to study. One of her other friends at the time Shayna, fed her nonsense like “I can’t believe Margaret isn’t coming to your birthday party, that’s do disrespectful of her”. On top of this Shayna sent me some pretty evil texts saying, “don’t you dare show up tonight even if you can, I don’t want to see your face”. Even though I couldn’t go to her birthday party I still wanted to make it up to her and take her out for dinner so I told her at that I would take her out for dinner to make it up to her but she didn’t reply. On top of this I had asked her to not get other people involved in our discussion because it was creating a bigger problem. We ended up not talking after that night because I didn’t go and Shayna who fed her the nonsense because she was jealous of our friendship ended up succeeding and breaking us apart. When this occurred, I felt alone, betrayed, and frustrated because I knew people were talking nonsense to try and make me look like a bad friend because I couldn’t go to her birthday party. I was furious that Shayna had sent me that text message and I knew Shayna was jealous that Katelyn and me had such a strong bond and strong friendship. Katelyn and me always saw each other everyday even if it was after work......

Drugs Among Teens

...used some form of hallucinogenic drug. Athletes are at risk to drug use because of the increased physical demand of athletics and heightens stress and time constraints placed upon them by fulfilling the dual role of being an athlete and student (Yusko, Buckman, White, Pandina, 2008). Peer pressure in itself is an epidemic and strongly impacts nonathletic individuals as well. The use of prescriptions drugs for nonmedical use is higher than are use of cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, ecstasy, and inhalants all combined. Prescription Opioids result in more drug abuse deaths than both cocaine and heroin combined (Katelyn Rozenbroek& Rothstein, 2011).There are a lot of factors that drive teens and college students to turn to drugs and alcohol. The highest rates of prescription drugs used non-medically occur among college students and other young adult’s ages 18 to 24 (Katelyn Rozenbroek& Rothstein, 2011). In this essay, I will address the use and misuse of drugs and the effects it has on students and student life. I will go into detail about all the world of smoking, how students are forced into situation and other awful things. I will also discuss how the influence of parents plays a major role in the drug and alcohol use among teens and college students; addressing the effects that it has on their education. A survey was taken from random students from ten universities. The survey method was used. The questionnaire was based on alcohol, marijuana, and other drug......

Society That Depends Only on Computer as Its Main Means of Communication

...In today’s world, with ever advancing technology, the ability to communicate with others have been vastly improved which positively influenced many people. Surely from an easier communication business can flourish and deals that seem impossible can now become possible. Somehow with the ease of today’s communication, a society that depends only on computer as its main means of communication exist. This trend could give the negative impact onto the society. There are some dangers that could appear from the dependent of computer based communications among society. According to John A. Bargh and Katelyn Y.A. McKenna (2004) internet communication is an impoverished and sterile form of social exchange compared to traditional face-to-face interactions, and will therefore produce negative outcomes (loneliness and depression) for its user as well as weaken neighbourhood and community ties. Having used to communicate using computer based media, people might or tend to lose the sense to anticipate others feeling well. Since they are only communicating through computer, it is not entirely possible that the feelings can be transcended through to the other person. As if we were talking to someone who is directly in front of us, we would try to anticipate the emotions being projected by their face or body language and from that we can presume the situation we were in, whether the situation is sad or happy, we can react to it. Perhaps it is due to the lack of self-esteem of certain......

...YoungLife is a remarkable program that meets high school students where they’re at, and aspires to show students Jesus. Through YoungLife I have met three of the most amazing, role model leaders that I hope to have in my life for eternity. I think that as a successful and effective leader you must have wholesome communication skills. I also think that appreciation and communication are in direct correlation. The more you communicate with people, the more appreciation they have for you and the more they feel your appreciation for them. Katelyn Percy was my YoungLife leader sophomore year in Wilmington, NC. Katelyn was so selfless and made sure to know how I was and how my day was every day. She made me feel so appreciated. As a leader you must also humble yourself. If your “followers”, or those who you are leading, feel appreciated and as if you are on the same level as them, I trust that one has the ability to do wonders and accomplish masses. Through Katelyn, I learned how to be a humble leader. Consistency in pursuance is another characteristic that one must have in order to be a successful leader. Rebecca Parker was my YoungLife leader when my family and I made the move to Clemson, SC. I was pursued daily by Rebecca. I was pursued with love, laughter, humility, appreciation, and confidence. There were times where I did not care to hear what she had to say, but she never gave up on me. Through Rebecca, I learned the importance of consistency. Successful leaders impact......

...complimentary with the hotel room. I guess that it had to be from Target and remember that I need to buy a new razor and shampoo and conditioner before we leave. Oh and soap. Definitely need more soap. I didn’t even want to think about soap right now. I want to go now but know that I really shouldn’t leave Katelyn alone despite everything. She is sleeping, I like to remember her that way that morning, sleeping like that. I try never to forget her curls and her eyelashes as I watch her sleeping on the bed; her round Jackie Kennedy sunglasses and my Audrey Hepburn heels that were thrown off the bed from the night before. I want to remember her this way. Before she goes back to her life. Her life without me. Her married life. Her life that began again last night. I try to remember her this way. The moon had deepened the curtains a olive purple as the street lamps lit the way home for the late night drunks. “I knew you wouldn’t stay Katelyn…” I told her, my tears mixed with my black eyeliner. “Lauren…I love you…” I heard her say as she followed me to the hotel room. “I knew you’d go back to him Katelyn…” I repeated back to her. Katelyn finally got up. I had already showered, changed and straightened my hair. I told her I would wait for her before breakfast. I needed the rest of the day to think. I push around my hash browns and eggs. I don’t know why I try and order eggs. I don’t eat them much. There’s a cowboy......

High School

...gas. You finally make it to class, but you are late. One more tardy and you have Saturday school. Your second period class has a pop quiz which you are not prepared for. When you go to the restroom you over hear two of your friends making fun of your outfit. You are wondering if this day could possible get any worse. And then it does. Your boyfriend of nine months picks this day to break up with you. At one time or another every high schooler will experience a day similar to this. This is an illustration of why the high school years can be the most difficult times in a young person’s life. For example, peer pressure is something every high schooler will face on frequent bases. In an article in the current issue of Parenting Magazine, Katelyn Smith reports that an increase in the number of high school students have been exposed of the common peer pressures in today’s society: drugs, alcohol, and sex. Have you ever been put in a situation where all eyes are on you and you felt like you have to say yes or you will be ridiculed? Studies from the Adolescence Association indicate that roughly 80% of high school students experience peer pressure throughout their high school career. My parents have always told me to,” Say no to peer pressure!” The second most difficult time of a high school student is dealing with petty drama. In addition to friends talking behind your back as in the example already given above, there are many other types of drama. As seen in the movie Mean......

...Katelyn Barton Business Analytics 1 Dr. Barry Smith Project #3 As the years ascend, the movie picture industry has continued to grow and become more profitable than the previous years. The films produced have not only made businesses more competitive, but also more revenue. In the textbook, Statistics for Business and Economics, a case study is presented regarding the gross sales of some of the top grossing movies of 2011. Amongst this list was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Fast Five, Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol, Cars 2, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, and Thor. The data is the chart presents the opening gross sales and total gross sales (in millions). The chart also provided the weeks in release and number of theatres showing each film. After applying descriptive statistics towards the data, I was able to better understand the differences in each value. The minimum and maximum are listed for each variable, which assists in computing the range, which is the difference in the maximum value and minimum value. Next it was easy to compute the median, Q1, and Q3. When viewing the total gross sales, I divided the ascending order of values into four sections. The middle number, or median, 225.445, represented the central location between the minimum and maximum. From this point the first quartile, 195.725, represent the 25th......

Shows how if you are not perfect, most popular, prettiest, how we can possibly be judged about it or made fun of. It was a HUGE eye opener on reality about how teenage girls act and think. How selfish people act to please their self, think only about our personal feelings forgetting about others and how they feel. This book is a real ca eye catcher by the cover and just by reading the summary about it. An individual’s ability to bring change in another person is an amazing thing. Just too even say their name or smile at them might just make their day. Throughout this book shows how you can change someone well at least try. “The purpose of life is not to be happy- but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all - leo rosten” The quote shows and resembles Kyle from the book.
