• ICP should be in full swing by this point. Share from your perspective how your group is doing as a group? How have you specifically contributed at this point to assist in the success of your group project? How do you think your group members are perceiving you? This is intentionally asking that you reflect internally on your own participation and contribution to date. So far, our group has admittedly had some issues with evenly distributing responsibility. On many occasions, meetings which were essential to the development of our ICP had only been attended by half of the members, without any indication from the other two that they would not be able to make it. This failure of participation has made it relatively difficult to …show more content…
While another group member and I have taken it upon ourselves to ensure the success of our ICP, our exasperation at having to do so may have become evident on certain occasions. In consideration of this, I am now working on my communication skills. • Last class we broke into intragroups and reported out. What are your reactions to last class? In what ways did we practice dialogue during the last half of our last session? What did you notice about your classmates? Whose voices did we hear? Whose voices were missing? I really enjoyed last class due to the palpable sense of comfort within our intragroup. While I am unable to reference a time wherein I have ever truly felt uncomfortable in the IGD space, Monday was unique because there seemed to exist a strong form of solidarity between each of the “non-white” students. Everyone present made it clear as to what they identified as, and there was no doubt directed towards anyone regarding their choice. Even when one student expressed their uncertainty about identifying as a person of color, she was assured of her legitimacy and belonging. I found this moment extremely powerful, especially due to my own insecurities about how I am racially perceived. Within the intragroup, we were able to discuss sensitive topics in a “safe space,” without fear of the racial “other’s” offense or reaction. During this process, it was also clear that each participant felt comfortable being

I have chosen to teach metin how to juggle a soccer ball as it is a closed skill and the results are predictable and consistent. Closed and self-paced skill as it is under the direct control of the athlete, making it an easier skill to teach over 7 days. Juggling a soccer ball is a gross motor skill as it involves large muscle groups such as the quadriceps and the hamstrings. It’s a serial movement as it in theory it has a beginning and end movement to each juggle making it a discrete skill, however it is also continuous in nature as the intention is to continue the movement for as long as possible
Upon entering the class I was anxious, curious, and also oblivious to the ideas I would be encountering. Like other students who had not previously spent time discussing topics of race and ethnicity, I myself had nervous tendencies in assuming that such a class may not strengthen my understanding of ethnic and race relations. I realized I knew little about race or ethnicity, and even the possible similarities or differences. However, I welcomed the opportunity to further discover the possibilities of the class. My understanding of race was concentrated in a definition that could be understood as different skin colors. My limited conception of ethnicity applied to people’s origin or where they lived. It seemed as though my lack of
If memory serves me correctly, the first time I ventured to Pikeville was 1998 and the Phelps would have a nice season going 7-3 on the season. East Ridge was not even around back then. The 2017 Phelps team might be able to achieve those types numbers and with a up and coming head coach in David Jones, a former Belfry great the sky could be the limit.
My interest for the Attorney Advisor position with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) arises from my longstanding commitment to constantly improve myself. I have always enjoyed legal research, writing, and the complexities of intellectual property. I have no doubt that my enthusiasm to research, my eagerness to learn, and my strong ability to communicate clearly, work efficiently, accurately, and quickly, will make me an invaluable asset to the USPTO. I believe these traits combined with my unique skillset, developed as a result of experiences working for the Arizona Diamondbacks of Major League Baseball (Diamondbacks), Nike Inc. (Nike), and the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, Liability Management Department (AG Office)

AOTA has identified pediatrics as a key practice area for the 21st century. Pediatric OT practices provide services to infants, toddlers, children, and youth and their families in a variety of settings including schools, clinics, and homes. OT practitioners use meaningful activities to help children and youth participate in play, education, leisure, and work to promote physical, mental, and social health and wellness. Task analysis is used to identify factors (e.g., sensory, motor, social-emotional, cognitive) that may limit successful participation. Activities and accommodations are used in interventions to promote successful performance. Evidence-based research suggests that pediatric OT practices have positive impacts on clients
In this heavily pretreated patient population, pemetrexed, a 2nd generation antifolate agent produced an objective response of 26% (4/15) in patients with thymoma. 2 complete responses and 2 partial responses were documented, whereas there was only one partial response in patients with thymic carcinoma. The response rate of 9% in patients with thymic carcinoma suggests that pemetrexed is not active in this more aggressive phenotype. This is the first study to prospectively demonstrate the clinical activity of pemetrexed in thymic malignancies and solidifies the role of pemetrexed in the second line, and beyond in advanced thymoma. Prior to this, a Phase I trial of pemetrexed conducted in Japan demonstrated a partial response in one patient
Interco Summary of the Case Even before we go into the specifics of the case, we can point out a few important pieces of information from the case: 1) Interco management and Wall Street analysts believed that the apparel group’s performance would continue to weaken Interco’s overall operations and cause the equity markets to undervalue its common stock. Case Page 4. 2) To deter any unwanted third- party acquisition, the board voted on July 11, 1988, to amend Interco’s shareholder rights plan, making any hostile takeover of the company prohibitively expensive. Case Page 4. 3) Interco had retained Wasserstein Perella pursuant to a unique compensation contract that offered a substantial contingency fee of $3.7 million payable to Wasserstein
The group discussion has just passed, and it was really a hard work and challenging. There were many precious lessons I got, and, hopefully, so did with my friends. Our group was consisting of four students. As a quantity, reasonably, we had had enough power to do a better work and gained a satisfying result. As I flashed back to the group discussion, it was enriching my memories. Some were in high spirit, remarkable and enjoyable. Opposite to it, few were disappointing.
It is generally accepted that information is a vital commodity for the successful operation of today’s organizations. Nowadays modern business organizations are using computerized information systems in order to obtain such information. However as the technology advances rapidly the main issue is how can an organization should effectively use such an information system - which its management sometimes can be unpredictable - in order to effectively help the whole organization structure to improve and take the most out of it.

Infosys is an IT consulting company based in India but primarily doing business with North American firms looking to outsource their IT needs. With the rise of the popularity in this form of business between the United States and India, there have been several political factors in both countries that will affect the way Infosys does business. In the US, President Obama made outsourcing a hot topic of his campaign platform. With speeches such as “Say no to Bangalore, yes to Buffalo” he is looking to provide incentives to American companies to keep all of their jobs on American soil, close tax loopholes and eliminate breaks given to companies that outsource to firms such as Infosys. On the flip side though, the US government is also looking to change immigration policies to restrict H-1B visas that would have previously allowed foreign skilled technical workers to be brought in to the US on work visas. While they won’t be eliminating them, they are seeking to restrict them which would force Infosys to hire employees from the US for any work they would be doing in the country and restricting the available talent pool. Meanwhile, the government in India is making changes of their own, particularly with reforming the tax code. To encourage the growth of the Software and Technology fields the Indian government had established significant tax breaks which are now coming to an end. In addition, they have
