If working harder than the people around you, will actually get you a better life than they get, many ambitious people will work harder. They are not stupid, however. If working harder than the people around you will not get you ahead of those who don't put forth that extra effort, you would be stupid to do it. The reason that this country is a great country is that there is the commonly held belief that hard work will be rewarded. It is the light that drives this country. The rich will remain rich but will not invest as they use to. Innovation will hinder for large corporations will go elsewhere to conduct their business. America is already the second most expensive place to do business.
I think America is still considered by most to be a capitalist country. We have certainly headed down the road to socialism in the past decades. In a true lassiez faire capitalist society, there are no provisions for the weak or the elderly. There do need to be some social programs, such as welfare, food stamps, and basic services.... that's part of being a civilized society. Even access to basic health care needs to be protected by government, but that's as far as that should go and those things should be made the responsibility of local and state politicians, where we can really get to know our representatives and they can really get to know the people and problems of the state. So, you can see that as a shift toward socialism if you like, but I see it as a move toward…...

Hard Work

...had to work hard in both the classroom, and the gymnasium to receive a full athletic scholarship. Basketball had always been my favorite sport growing up. I knew that if I could become an exceptional ball player, I could get my academics after high school paid for. It also meant that the financial burden of putting a child through college, would be taken off my parents shoulders. Physically, God gave me good materials to build with. I put my 6'7" body through rigorous drills, training, and conditioning to become the best basketball player I could be. My peers recognized my hard work, and made me their team captain for both my junior and senior seasons. I always seemed to be my own worst critic, which was both a blessing and a curse. At times it would push me harder, to a higher level of competition. There were other times however, that I would get to hard on myself and not be able to overcome the frustration of performing well. That may have been my largest hurdle in achieving success in basketball, but gradually I learned to channel the majority of my self criticism into positive energy. In the classroom, I studied hard and often. I graduated high school with a GPA of 3.8. I knew that to be offered an athletic scholarship, my grades would have to be just as good as my abilities on the basketball court. Keeping the end goal in the back of my mind, always helped to push me through all of my classes, and strive for a good grade. While putting myself through all the hard......

Hard Times

...The industrial revolution was a time of great technological changes. It revolutionised everything, from the way people lived to where they worked, but what society often overlooked was how ordinary people went through their day to day lives. In the book ‘Hard Times’, Charles Dickens has produced some exceptional characters to represent the complexity of each social class. From the arrogance of aristocracy to the struggle of the common workers, and the way in which they cope with the many hardships they will endure. Charles Dickens was able to personify the different social classes. The real reason why Charles Dickens wrote Hard Times was because he was low on funds, this was due to his sales being low on his periodical magazine “Household words”. He hoped by writing this novel in instalments would bale him out by increasing his profits. However, Dickends wished to satirize radical utilitarians who dickens thought to be ‘those who see figures and averages, and nothing else’. He also wished to campaign for reform of working conditions. In as early as 1839, dickens visted factories in Manchester and was appalled by the conditions workers had to work in. Furthermore, Charles Dickens gives us a close up look into what appears to be the ivory tower of the bourgeoisie of his day, yet these middle-class characters are viewed from a singular perspective, the perspective of those at the bottom of the social and economic system. Though Dickens characters tend to be well developed......

Working

...is not exceptional for people with an international career. People who work in the IT sector have to travel a lot as well. Even scientists have several conferences in different countries. All in all, it is clear that an international career comes with both advantages and disadvantages. It allows people to discover new places and thereby get new experiences. Yet, it also demands from the employees to stay away from home and have a certain language capability as well as several other qualities. I personally would reject an international career because I believe that it requires too much of oneself. The major disadvantage, in my opinion, is that you are not able to live at home. However, for people with the ambition of travelling while working at the same time, an international career might be something worth pursuing....

... Diligence is steadfast application, assiduousness and industry; the virtue of hard work. It is one of the seven heavenly virtues. Diligent behaviour is indicative of a work ethic; a belief that work is good in itself. Diligence in students Bernard et al. Other factors which encourage diligence in students include motivation, discipline, concentration, responsibility and devotedness. Diligence in Buddhism The last words of the Buddha was "Strive on with diligence". Diligence is an integral part of all Buddhist teaching, and is considered the fourth of the pāramitā. In Mahayana tradition diligence is the third pāramitā and the first which is said to lead to liberation. The practice of diligence will bring an increase of qualities. Diligence in Christianity Diligence, in Christianity, is the effort to do one's part, while keeping faith and reliance in God. In other words, diligence and faith are two sides of a mystery. One doesn’t know how, despite one's effort, it all works out. But diligence when combined with faith assures spiritual success. Diligence as one of seven virtues describes thoroughness, completeness and persistence of an action, particularly in matters of faith. Diligence in Hinduism According to Brian Hatcher, the precepts of Hinduism require a human being to discover and live a dharmic life.

Please Stop Working so Hard

...“ “Please Stop Working So Hard!” Matt Platt is a recent university graduate, with little work experience and no previous management experience. Evan Saunders is a hard working employee who consistently goes above and beyond his job description, without being asked or compensated for it. While Matt does not want to punish Evan for being a good worker, it is causing some tension and morale issues among the shift employees. The company has developed a fragile and stressful work atmosphere causing the workers to complain.The employees have distrust, low morale and valid concerns about job safety; they are protesting that there is unequal treatment given to Saunders as they see him not following union mandated break times. Evan Saunders over enthusiastic work ethic has sparked sitewide layoffs; management is now beginning to expect the same dedication out of the other staff. They figure it takes fewer employees to do the same amount of work. The previous round of layoffs created a very tense and stressful environment among the employees. The real problem is an inefficient and misdirected leadership; Matt’s reliance on Saunders for guidance on day-to-day operations has caused an uneven distribution of objectivity.Matt is not taking control or dealing with the difficulties; he appears to be favouring Saunders above the other team members. Saunders also demonstrates inefficient leadership by missing mandatory meetings and by, not listening to his line operators. Matt must......

Working Hard and Be Consistent

...Working hard and be consistent is my belief. I came to the United States in 2003 to acquire my college education. It has been a long journey since I arrived to this country. It is on my recollection the day I left Ecuador, my family and my friends looking for new challenge that I really want to succeed. At the beginning of this journey everything looks so difficult and there were a lot of barriers on the road. I recognized it that if I want to succeed in this country I need to learn how to speak and write in English to be able to effectively communicate with others in this country. Moreover, I need to improve my listening skills to have a better understanding of the English speakers. In my college Education I was able to complete my 2-year college degree and I got my BA in Marketing by following my belief. Working hard and be consistent took me to the next level in college Education. In my professional career I always follow the identical belief. I remembered my first interview with my first boss. He asked me about my strengths and weaknesses in the interview. I remembered I was so nervous because it was my first job interview in this country. Moreover, I really need to get this job to start getting job experience for the near future. I answered that my strengths are that I work really hard and I am extremely consistent in any task that I am in charge. It was a really good interview and I left thinking that I will get this job. In effect, I got this position......

Hard Lives

...Amber Sprouse Watts Eng. 101 2/13/2015 Hard Lives Are Worth all the Trouble Hard lives can not be an excuse to missing assignments, being late, or overwhelming oneself. In a way it is almost an insult to an instructor, saying that time is not well spent doing something for them. That being said, instructors should never lower their standards due to a student's busy life; students also shouldn’t think of time as something they can abuse simply because they are young and in college. Community college students come to community college for a variety of reasons, regardless of why they choose to do so, they are always welcome. As long as students believe they can achieve their goals than anything is possible. We all have hard lives, some more difficult and drawn out than others. And however for many decades people have managed to overcome busy schedules and make it work, all instructors want what's best for their students and although they might seem a bit insane, believe it or not all the trouble is worth it in the end. All the work and all the trouble of scheduling may seem unimportant and a new student might not understand the big deal, however it can change the outlook one might have on their life. Just taking ten minuets week to evaluate the time that we all have available can make a drastic difference in how the task at hand are accomplished. Putting a schedule down on paper gives the perfect perspective on how the time that’s available is used. The author of The Myth...

Hard Drives

...HDD Power Consumption VS Performance Hard Disk Drive- abbreviated as HDD is a data storage device used for storing and retrieving digital information using rapidly rotating disks coated with magnetic material. Magnetic hard-disk drives are used to store most of the data accessible by personal computers and workstations, as well as much of the data being processed by large enterprise servers. The data is stored digitally as tiny magnetized regions, called bits, on the disk. In this assignment, I would like to compare two different HDD by Western Digital. Western Digital is one of the largest computer hard disk drive manufacturers in the world. The way WD designed their website is intuitive so it’s easier for the user to comprehend, and decide which hard drive will best fit the customer needs. They say “Our colors give you the power”, by comparing each individual HDD we can easily decide which hard disk drive should be purchased according to customers’ needs. Refer to Figure 1 to compare between various HDDs that Western Digital offers. The two HDDs that I would like to focus on are the WD Green- Cool, quiet, eco-friendly, and WD Black- Maximum performance for power computing. WD Green Desktop Hard Drive WD Green Desktop Hard Drives are designed to run very cool and quiet when in operation, in other words eco- friendly, which are beneficial for energy efficiency.

Hard Work

...Aldana, Andres Mr. Savard English 28 July 16, 2014 Hard Work Learning was never an easy thing for me do growing up. It was as if my head was stuck in the clouds, dreaming of anything and everything and when someone said something to me it went in one ear and out the other. I found myself in bad times, by being afraid of my own work Throughout the years I learned what being a student was about by the influence of my peers, I had to start fresh by gained learning experiences that helped me in education. My style of learning is inspired by the coaches and teachers who helped me shape who I am today. Growing up was something that I remember best especially third grade, I think this when I had my first reality check also. I didn’t know what was going on at the time the teacher use of high vocabulary seemed like another language so I never did pay any attention. Soon I found myself in a few parent conferences. Soon after the conferences I was being held back. It was like someone was telling me I was not good enough to be with the same crowd. Walking down the halls of the school I thought that everyone was staring and laughing at me and the once easily spoken child was a speechless shell of a human being. It wasn’t until one of my old teachers noticed that I didn’t talk as much as I used to, she came over and asked me what was wrong so I told her, what happened and how I felt. She then put her hand on my shoulder and then told me something I would never......

There are a few private colleges around. So I might be able to get another class. And giving music lessons. That’s enough for me to get by.” That part was easy, the money, having more than enough to get by. The hard parts were: no balsamic vinegar or kettle potato chips or authentic Italian sauce, craft beer or Napa wines—she lived long enough in northern California to have become a foodie; there being no other single Jew her age for her to talk to in person; the brutal winter cold and her not taking to snow shoeing. In some things she surprised even herself, for not only did Ali perform all her pastoral duties well, as the only clergy for the congregation, she found great pleasure in it—the advice sought after by members more than twice her age, the comfort she gave to those in need, the confessional secrets she kept locked away. She grew accustomed to the deprivations and found the newborn meaning in her life more than......

Hard Times

...mechanically operated version of a regular loom, an invention that combined threads to make cloth], which had been patented in 1785, rapidly became more widespread. This had a deleterious [injurious to health] effect on the hand loom weavers, who could not compete with the power loom and could no longer find sufficient work. By the time Dickens wrote Hard Times, power looms were the norm and hand weaving was almost extinct. Because of this development, weavers were gradually driven from their home-based weaving to the factories in the towns, which grew rapidly in population. The new factory workers put in ten-hour days. Conditions were often dangerous, and industrial accidents were common. This subject gave rise to a heated article written by Henry Morley and published in Dickens's own magazine, Household Words, in April 1854. Morley claimed that over the previous three years, there had been a hundred deaths and nearly twelve thousand accidents in factories in England. These figures were disputed by other contemporary commentators, but there is no doubt that many serious accidents did occur, often caused by unguarded machinery. In Hard Times, there is a reference to people being "chopped up" by machinery (Book 2, chapter 1). Factory workers sought to protect their own interests by joining trade unions, which were growing in power in the 1850s. But the unions often faced fierce opposition from employers. A notorious example of industrial conflict took place in Preston, a......

Cependant, le hard-discount alimentaire est réellement inventé en Allemagne dans la période post-seconde guerre mondiale (1947) par les frères Albrecht fondateurs d’Aldi. Après un échec dans les années 70, le hard-discount alimentaire arrive, véritablement, en France durant l’année 1988, par le lancement d’ED.
