In his article "Making the Grade," Kurt Wiesenfeld presents a problem regarding the ethical value of grades in modern society. A physics professor, Wiesenfeld opens the article by making the "rookie error" of being in his "office the day after final grades were posted." (paragraph 1) Several students then attempt to influence him to change their grades for the class. What concerns Wiesenfeld is that many of his more recent students consider a grade to be a negotiable commodity rather than accept the grade as an accurate representation of efforts and performance and how much they learned. The author indicates that part of this
Nestled in Southern Indiana just west of Louisville, Kentucky and south of Indianapolis, Indiana is Dubois County, Indiana. Dubois County is comprised of the towns of Birdseye, Ferdinand, Holland, Huntingburg and Jasper. Of those towns, Jasper is the largest and is the county seat (Kelly School of Business, 2014). Over fifty-two percent of the population consists of adults ranging from 25-64 years of age (Kelly School of Business, 2014). The leading cause of mortality in this county is heart disease, cancer, suicide and injuries (Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center & Dubois County Health Department, 2011).
As you enter your RN-BSN educational program, you are again going through a period of socialization or transformation. As you learn more about the roles of the BSN-prepared nurse, how can you use other nurses with BSNs and higher degrees to help you in your socialization or transformation? What factors are most important as you become socialized as a BSN student? What are your resources in this process? How can this process be most effective?
Refer as needed to the material in Chapters 12 and 13 of the textbook. Keep the following tips in mind as you research data, as well as organize, analyze, interpret, and illustrate these data:
1. a) i) The content of the table is about Canada’s economic and financial situation divided into four sectors: real sector, fiscal sector, financial sector, and external factor. Each of the four sectors is divided into smaller categories. For example: real sector is divided into national accounts, production index, labor market, prices indices. The other three factors are also divided into smaller categories just like the real sector. In addition, this table has the most recent GDP to show the success of Canada’s economy. The overall goal of the data is to show Canada’s recent economic situation.
The Daniel L. Goodwin Distinguished Lecture Series featuring James Carville and Mary Matalin was very interesting. The wide-ranging discussion was based on the current state of politics in the United States. The married couple talked about how they feel about the first 10 days of the president's term. They used a unique way of catching the crowd attention by body language and jokes that referred to what one another was saying. Both Mary Matalin and James Carville came with facts and reasons they felt backed up their arguments. James Carville seem to have been more supportive to Democrats, while Mary Matalin seem to be more of a conservative. The covered topics such as: obama care, LGBT, and Immigration Law. The discussion ended with opening
My Great-great Grandfather, Soloman Schultz, was part of a huge historical event that impacted my family and its history significantly. Along with two million Russian-Jews, Soloman Schultz left Russia to get away from anti-Jewish rioters called Pogroms. In 1903 when Soloman Schultz lived in Russia, the second wave of pogroms arose. Pogroms are most often present during periods of political crisis in a country to escape punishments or penalties from their actions (Modern, AICE). A pogrom is an outbreak of mass violence directed against a minority religious, ethnic, or social group (Modern, AICE). In 1903 in Russia, there were groups made up of Christians that had organized massacres and riots against Jews. The organization of the Pogroms was led by monarchist societies, and a group known as the Black Hundreds was the main organizer (Modern, AICE).
Presenting in the Huskies Showcase was a very new experience to me. I have never had the experience to conduct research and present it in a setting like the Huskies Showcase. I feel I learned a lot through the process and grew as a student. I gained a great deal of useful skills relating to collecting research and presenting what I learned to an audience. I will be able to apply these skills to future skills and become a more successful student.
My favorite part of the lecture was the Native American story on the Origin of Disease and Medicine. Native American
Your assignment was clear and concise. You covered the required question with ease, and you made some validate points. I do agree with you cited “A major reaction to change is a feeling of losing control; what was assumed to be the norm now isn’t, and we are in an unknown land,” (Jicks, Peiperl, 2011, p. 341). When placed in a leadership position it becomes apparent that we have to be ready for change, however this doesn’t mean we have to agree with the change. We should make every effort to understand the intent behind the change. Ecclesiastes 3:1 - To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (King James Version).
Exercises 10: This is essentially an argument. The author argues, “Love looks not with eyes but with mind.” However, Shakespeare primary argumentative claim is that true love is able to ignore superficial beauty and appreciate the genuine value of a person. Thus, he believes that Cupid, being the agent of love, is therefore blind to appearance. Cupid is often portrayed in art as wearing a blindfold, "painted blind". Yet, the following passage contains some argument and has been interpreted as argument. Therefore, the entire propositions preceding the first judgment and/ or claim of the passage serve as premises.
I enjoyed the presentation by Reid Lefler. This study was very interesting to me as it focused on psychopathological symptoms in children. I recently have learned a bit about psychopathology development in children from a research study that is starting at the University of Iowa, so it was interesting to learn more from Reid throughout her presentation. Specifically, I was very interested to learn how the DSM-5 added new classifications for children under 6 years old. The DSM-5 always has interested me and I enjoy learning more about it. Also, I enjoyed learning about the General Effect Model from Reid. This presentation allowed for me to learn more on topics I had preexisting knowledge of, but also to learn more on new topics.
Photographers David Politzer and Katrin Korfmann both implore different artistic styles but emphasize similar subject possibilities in their work. These artists show different uses of camera position and design in their work layouts, but show related subjects in their photographs. Korfmann and Politzer show life in their work, but display it in different ways by using their own perspective and composition.
Demming’s formulation of his Fourteen Points is seen by many as the management equivalent of the “10 Commandments”. Like many quality driven approaches, the fourteen points take a holistic view of an organization, how it works, and its relationships with its stakeholders.
I learned a lot about myself during the presentation, especially relating to my thought processes. First, I learned that I started formulating questions about the material I read. Beforehand, I would usually process the information and not question its validity or create any contrary arguments. For example, I started writing numerous questions and counter-arguments in my notebook. The material on lying prompted my question about whether acting is a lie or not. Basically, I have started analyzing information and asking how it “fits in” with other information, such as societal norms.
