“Shades of people in our lives”
The sea is an indication of freedom to us people. We can do what we want; we can go wherever we want to. You’ll see different shades of blue in the ocean and the sea. The deeper it gets, the darker the shade, the shallow it gets, the lighter the shade is. Everything in life has its own persona and these personas are represented by different shades of colours. In life there are different types of person with different personas too.
People who you meet for the first time or you have met already but didn’t much stayed in your life have the shade of a lighter blue, which signifies they are on the near part of the shore. Either you or the people didn’t get to know each other very well. They’ve been only part of your life for a week or much shorter and you rarely see each other. People, who you meet and sooner you called friends, got the shade of a light-dark blue. They are people who know you, but you don’t really show the real you. It’s like you’re in the middle of the deep and shallow part of the ocean somewhere in that zone. Friends are the greatest gifts that God gave us. They always support us when we’re down, but those people who you show your real self are called best friends. People who belong to the darker shade are the people who you show your real self and who you trust the most. These persons know you well. That they even know what kind of person you are, they know what you like, they know what you do, and they almost know everything about you. Example of this person is your family and your one and only best friend.
Family is the one who we ran to when we don’t know how to cope up with the problem and when we are like a baby that needs to cry out loud. They always support us on what we do, but they don’t always support us, they also correct us and lead us to a straighter path when they think we’re getting on a bumpy road.…...

In Depth Research on Basf

...In depth research on BASF Because I have not heard about a company named BASF before, I was worried about writing a research paper about it. However, when I visited its website, my worries disappeared, because the website had lots of valuable information that informs me about what they did in the past and what they plan to do in the future. The BASF is a chemical company that was established in 1865 in Germany. The company name, BASF, stands for Badische Anilin- und Soda-Fabrik (Baden Aniline and Soda Factory). The company has more than 140 years of history and has gone through dramatic changes, which has lead to it becoming a universal modern company. According to its website, there are more than 110,000 employees and 385 production sites all over the world, and its goal is to be a “world’s leading chemical company.” The BASF produces various chemical related products, and these are six main product categories: chemicals, plastics, performance products, functional solutions, agricultural solutions and oil & gas. A few of its competitors are Bayer AG, Dow Chemical and TOTAL. Those companies have similar business products as BASF; however, BASF seems to be the only company that does everything, from chemical related to products to oil & gas. Therefore, the BASF is pretty competitive. By doing some research about this company, I was able to find many attractions that would make students want to work for the company. First, it is a world-wide company that one can work in...

Amazon, since its release in 1995, has since become one of the Fortune 500 e-commerce company. In the business world, Amazon is currently the largest online retailer in the world. It manufactures consumer electronics, most widely known is the Amazon Kindle e-book reader, and has an extensive cloud computing service.

In Depth Analysis

...inShare0 0 Comments In-Depth Analysis: Best Buy (BBY, AMZN, WMT, BKS, BGP) Best Buy (NYSE: BBY[FREE Stock Trend Analysis]) reported fourth quarter and full year earnings yesterday and failed to meet analysts' expectations. Best Buy reported revenue of $16.26 billion in the fourth quarter compared to $16.55 billion in the same period a year ago, or a decrease of 1.8%. Net income decreased by 16.4% from $779 million to $651 million. Thus, earnings per share fell from $1.82 to $1.62.This decrease largely reflects Best Buy's decision to spend $222 million in restructuring charges to focus its international efforts and drive supply chain efficiencies. Excluding restructuring charges, earnings per share rose for the quarter to $1.98 which beat analyst estimates. Nonetheless, Best Buy's stock price showed that investors were less than thrilled with the earnings news. Best Buy's share price fell 5.4% on the release of the earnings information. Best Buy struggled domestically: revenue fell 4% versus the prior-year period. Most notably, there was double-digit decline in sales of entertainment hardware and software and TVs. Consumer demand for new television technologies was not a significant revenue-generator. Where the domestic segment declined, it was offset by the 4% increase in the international segment. This increase is mostly due to new store openings and a favorable fluctuation in currency exchange rates during this time. As Benzinga readers already know, Best Buy has......

Defense in Depth

...Discuss the pros and cons of defense in depth, for example the need for defense in depth versus satisfying other operational requirements. The business has to run in order to stay in business. The best security is leaving the system turned off. If the system is turned off, the business will not run and therefore the business will not make money. This simple sentence directly relates to the implementation of defense in depth within an enterprise environment. The multiple rings of defense portrayed in Course Module Five (5), reflected a defense in depth approach (Course Content 5). The rings represented a specific layer of defense starting with the lock on the door, an alarm, a security guard, vibration sensors, etc. The controls listed were all physical controls. Of course, the course recommended adding camera systems, which in today’s world are expectations for minimum physical security controls. Not all organizations can afford cameras and the associated costs of storage media. The industry (Navigating the PCI DSS, 2010) standard PCI DSS lists the requirement to record traffic in and out of sensitive areas. The specific requirement calls out to record or user other means of monitoring traffic in and out of sensitive areas. This means that recording is the best practice, however it is costly and not all organizations can implement cameras, however an organization may put badge readers in place to track users coming into and out of sensitive areas to meet the intent of......

Working at Relational Depth

...Christine King 23rd November 2011 WHAT IMPACT HAS THE RELATIONAL APPROACH, AS DESCRIBED IN ‘BEYOND EMPATHY’ AND MEARNS AND COOPER’S ‘WORKING AT RELATIONAL DEPTH’, HAD ON YOUR CLIENT WORK. ILLUSTRATE YOUR ANSWER WITH REFERENCE TO A SINGLE SESSION WITH A CLIENT. Introduction This essay will be looking at the importance of relational depth and further more I will attempt to demonstrate my growing awareness of my relationship with my clients and how it has impacted on my client work. What is Relational depth? Relational Depth comes from the book entitled ‘Working at Relational Depth in Counselling and Psychotherapy’ (2005), Dave Mearns and Mick Cooper. ‘Such an encounter can feel beyond language’ (p.xi). I feel it’s a very true statement. Words do not feel powerful enough; it feels the power is almost being dismissed. I do not think that Mearns and Cooper have developed anything new to the Person Centred Approach, I feel that Carl Rogers had already developed relational depth by using congruence, positive regard and empathy. (Rogers 1959) Often I have found working with Bereavement, I sit with my client’s pain and can get to relational depth quite quickly. My client sat and cried and looked at me with pain in her eyes. Her eyes said, “this feels unbearable, can you feel my pain?” Yes, I thought as I slowly nodded, yes I can and it hurts. The pain was within me, my chest and stomach felt......

The Effect of Prediction on Depth of Encoding

...1 The Effect of Prediction on Depth of Encoding Student X name University of New South Wales 2 Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of prediction on depth of encoding. Participants (N=136) were given sentence stems and instructed to think of a word to finish the sentence. The full sentence was then completed with either a predictive or a nonpredictive word, and a recognition test given to see how well each word was retained in memory. Out of the three hypotheses, the results supported stronger encoding of predictive words over non-predictive words or the prediction itself. It was suggested this could be due to predictive words forming a more elaborate memory trace, which then integrated better with existing mental categories. 3 The Effect of Prediction on Depth of Encoding When reading a sentence, the mind can form a prediction about which word should come next. Yet it is not clear how this prediction affects the encoding of the actual word that completes the sentence. A word that fulfils the prediction could be better encoded than one that violates it, simply because it forms a smoother fit, or because the mind was already prepared for it. Alternatively, the violation itself might create a stronger impact, leading to better encoding. A third possibility also exists: that the prediction overwrites the encoding of the actual word, regardless of its congruency. One of the most enduring theories of encoding is the levels of processing......

Dorian Grey Qquestions in Depth

...too. He is neither rich nor poor. He belongs to the upper classes of the painters in his region. The other person is Dorian Gray, he is wealthy and belong to the same social class as Basil. You see that the Lord belongs to a higher social class, that is one of the reasons why he has influence on Dorian. When Sybil fell in love with Dorian, Dorian is more wealthy then she is, Dorian broke with her. She is so upset that she takes her own life. What is in some way the influence of Dorian, indirectly. 4. If you could ask the author a question, what would you ask? What do you think he or she would answer? The book ends with the suicide of Dorian Gray, that is why I’d like to ask this question. What kind of interpretation do you have on this? I saw different interpretations for this, I hope one of these is yours. The first one is that Dorian is suffering from his strong will to follow the aestheticism. This is more plausible, because you were one of the followers of the aestheticism. The second one is that he is punished for living his life like a hedonist. In that way this book critics the aestheticism, what would be less plausible. Another thing I hope is that it is ironically meant that Dorian says that he do not want to throw the knife into the painting, or ‘in himself’, and later he kills himself with the same knife, by throwing himself in to the knife....

Defense in Depth

...on four primary key elements: people, technology, application and operations. ‘Defense in depth’ is a strategy, which can help achieve IA while keeping the balance between operational cost and procedures, performance and protection capabilities. To protect your assets defense in depth helps to resist or progressively weaken attack. It is like an onion and to reach the inner most part (i.e. asset), one has to pass through layers and hope if one layer fails other layer will surely detect and drop. There are many Tools, Techniques and Methodology (TTM) used by attacker. Hence there is no single procedure/method/strategy for blocking these attacks. For example firewall cannot provide protection if the user in LAN targets another host in the LAN. Hence it calls for ‘defense in depth’ where if one layer fails to detect/deter attacker, another layer will surely be successful in blocking the attempt. Defensive layers The ‘defense in depth’ strategy starts with documentation and this helps organization to self access and in turn helps in deploying effective countermeasures. These policies should reflect the proactive approach model. Also, the final stage is mitigation but to reach there we have to understand the attack vectors and administrators should choose vendors who are well known in the industry for understanding these vectors. img1 The following are the defense-in-depth layers: 1. Policies, procedure and awareness 2. Physical security 3. Perimeter......

Psychological Disorder in Depth

People with mood disorders will feel unhappy sometimes, not be interested in projects, they also will not feel like being around others, they also feel a sense of worthlessness as well. Most mood disorders go along with real life problems surrounding the person. The most common mood disorder is depression. Normal depression is what everyone can experience, for example: after a loved ones death a person can feel depressed over the loss. Symptoms of normal depression are sadness and just getting the blues for no reason. Normal depression only stays with a person for a short period of time. Clinical depression can last for years. Some of the same symptoms are the same as normal depression, but they are more severe than the normal depression symptoms are. Clinical depression can also lead to a person having suicidal thoughts and even the person going through with the suicide.

From the Depths of My Soul

...Stacy Chamlee Chamlee English 2130 Ms. Bell December 06, 2014 From the Depths of the Soul Leslie Silko writes with such passion because much of her work comes from the very depth of her soul .She has suffered great loss from a very early age. Many people would have succumbed and become bitter or worn down. Silko is one of those amazing authors and artist who are able to share the loss and redemption of finding themselves through unique writing styles and paintings. The influences of alcoholism on a personal level, the devastation of what has become of her native lands and to the Laguna people, and the death of love ones are all reflected in her writing. Alcoholism has always run rapid within the Indian nations. Silko’s maternal grandfather and her mother were alcoholics. In her nonfiction novel The Turquoise Ledge she writes about many family members who had problems with drinking even though alcohol was forbidden on the reservation. She says this of her mother: “My mother was a bright well-educated woman, and a great teacher, but she was also an alcoholic” (Silko Turquoise 38).She also remarks that “She didn’t drink on the job and she never missed work, but after work and on the weekends, my mother kept a coffee cup full of whiskey nearby” (Silko Turquoise 39). Teaching saved her mother because as long as she taught she was a functional alcoholic. Many of her cousins returning from the war did not fare so well. She expresses their voice and her own emotions......

The Serene Depths

...Paper #2-Walden American Lit. I 15 November 2005 The Serene Depths In Henry David Thoreau’s narrative, “Walden, or Life in the Woods,” the author tells of what his life was like while he lived in the woods of Massachusetts, beside Walden Pond. Among his many descriptions, Thoreau devotes a large portion of his writing to recreating Walden Pond in the reader’s mind, partly to create the setting for his story, but also because he felt genuine awe and love for his surroundings, and he wished to convey that love to others. Chapter nine of “Walden” is aptly titled, “The Ponds,” and in this chapter, Thoreau describes not only Walden Pond, but also some of the other ponds that are in the area where he lived for more than two years. He writes extensively about “the ribbed bottom [of the pond], which was strewn with the wrecks of the forest” (Thoreau, 1899), and waxes poetic about the mysterious depths of Walden Pond. One of the aspects of Walden Pond that he strives to impress on the reader is the sheer depth of the water. Throughout the chapter, and in later chapters as well, he describes a seemingly bottomless lake that is nearly mystical in its appearance. Later in the book, Thoreau reveals how deep the lake actually is, according to his calculations, but in Chapter 9, he does not go into the reality. Instead, he paints a picture of a magical place that has no beginning and no end. This is effective because it reminds the reader of the greatness of the earth......

Depth and Frame for Corleone

...Depth and Frame for Corleone The depth of field and framing in the ending scene of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 film The Godfather uses an assortment of focuses and cunning surroundings to portray the sincerity and emotional concepts which aid in the expression and dramatic power of Michael Corleone’s rise as Godfather. Application of both soft and deep focus photography combined with tight framing greatly influence the meaning and structure associated with Michael’s growth of power and allows us, the audience, to pay attention to details of the event occurring. In terms of depth of field, during the last few minutes of the ending scene, we see Michael Corleone and Kay are in the same room discussing whether or not Michael is responsible for the murder of his sister’s husband. We see his Kay ask the question if he’s guilty or not, but during the scene, as he begins his reply, we see a constant deep focus camera shot on Michael whereas a soft focus shot is almost always directed towards Kay. She is mainly drowned out of the picture as a soft focus remains almost constant on the back of her head leaving Michael as the main focal point and in a subjective point of view to Kay. These particular attentions to detail begin to show the lack of importance of Kay, and a more personal importance of Michael. By this, the audience can see a disconnection and assume that a separation into two worlds is now occurring. These focuses greatly affect the audiences’ view of a separation of...
