EMS 310 Blackboard Discussion Week 2 - Mandatory Natural Disaster Evacuations - Who should perform this duty?
Richards adopts a teleological-parochialism position 1 to justify that his actions are ethical, 2 even though they are illegal (Baugher & Weisbord, 2009). 3 Richards argues that his actions are ethical as they resulted in desirable consequences, in the form of better sales/performance figures, which met analyst forecasts and positively affected shareholder value (Radtke, 2004; Fernando, Dharmage, & Almeida, 2008). 4 He acted in the interests of his ‘in-group’ (other executives/managers), maximising their performance-based compensation, 5 at the expense of others (Barnett, Bass, & Brown, 1994). 6 Richards also claims that his actions were not serious, as recognising revenues
In the beginning, Jake at first is nervous and frustrated that Amy is late. Which is a lack of commitment from Amy's side, and Jake is just feeling the effects of it. When Amy does get there, Jake starts to ask questions and is very aggressive about it; all the while he does not give her a chance to speak. This is another type of transgression, Jake is displaying problematic emotions while he is addressing Amy. Also while Jake is questioning Amy, she is acting suspiciously, and either trying to avoid the question or delaying the answer. Which does not help and actually makes the situation worse, between the two. Throughout the session they are both distant, no touching whatsoever and avoiding eye contact. Things do get pretty heated between the two, and Jake even pressured the counselor into revealing what his thoughts are; in which was unsatisfying to both of them.
Amanda and Erica’s grades may differ for a variety of reasons. Studies show that the more academic activities a parent is involved in is significantly associated with their child having higher literacy achievement, lower rates of grade retention, and fewer years needing special education (Miedel & Reynolds, 2000). Amanda’s father’s income, education, and occupation also all correlate with her literacy abilities (Buckingham, Wheldall, & Beaman-Wheldall, 2013). Parental education has the strongest influence of the three (Buckingham, Wheldall, & Beaman-Wheldall, 2013).
Here we go again with resolutions. Our favorite part of new year. The next paragraphs are my simple resolution. My resolution are jogging for 30 minutes everyday, spend more time with friends and family, get a higher gpa. Every year I make my simple resolution, but only keep one or two of them. But not this year I am going to keep all of my resolution. So let's get started.
The first assignment consisted of creating a Bitmoji that represented how I thought I looked, and my personal identity behind the clothing I choose. When it came to what type of clothes we decided to choose, it boiled down to the notion that different sub cultures we associate ourselves in amongst society influence how we present ourselves through clothing. This led to myself choosing an outfit that consisted of a more relaxed style that reflected my own personal identification to the subcultural of athletics and sports. This could also be seen through my short haircut that follows a stereotypical expectation placed on guys in society. My haircut emphasized the importance of gender and its effects on all people across society.
Create a 10- to 12-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation, with a minimum of 100 words of speaker notes, in which you summarize each example and address the following questions:
My group had an instance of functional which was to work together to achieve the assignment. We had to pick four out of eight people, and all of eight people would die very soon if they did not have another heart. After reading the assignment sheets, we could pick two people immediately, Peter and Thomas, who were young boys. We had a lot of opinions about picking the other two. For me, I would pick Father and Donna base on what I read. However, after spending about ten minutes to discuss with my group, we all had agreement for Father and Mike. Even though I picked Donna instead of Mike, the other members shared their opinions and analyzed the information; so finally, I agreed to pick Father and Mike. At first, each of us had different choice
I do not understand how can someone see people be treated the way patients at Willow brook were treated and no do anything about it. Patients at Willow brook were suffering. Seen their families talk about what they went thru made me very sad. I do not blame the parents for taking their sons/daughter to this facility. They did what they thought was right. They probably never imagined that this was going to happen. They took their children there thinking they were going to get help and get the right treatment. Thankfully some of them were taken from their families just in time, before something worst happen. The students and their parents, they were all victims of the inhumane way they were treated at Willow brook.
The show that I used for this assignment was Friends. I felt that Joey played the role of the leader. When Ross told everyone he was moving, Joey was the first person to speak up about how he felt. He told the others they needed to do something to keep Ross from moving. He also went to Ross personally, and tried to convince him from following through with the move. I felt that Phoebe was the opinion giver. She kept informing the group that it was Ross' life and they should respect his decision. Whenever Joey would try to tell Ross how he felt, Phoebe would intervene to distract him. She also agreed when Ross got upset with the group. She told everyone it wasn't right to interfere with his life. With Joey taking the leader role, he helped the
(2.3) Throughout the session I posed and received questions on all parts of the session including the preliminary points. I listened to the entire question and ensuring that I understood before giving a considered answer. Further emphasis was placed on the learners to ask questions by adding the point to the ground rules during the preliminary stage of the session. After giving an answer I further backed up the answer by restating the initial information from the PowerPoint. Prior to advancing a slide a further opportunity was given for the learners to ask questions. Although no further needs were stated within my session I feel that I would have been able to adapt the session as necessary if required
I would suggest to my friend to get support from a cognitive behavioral therapist. CBT would the best fit for this friend because, this type of therapy focuses on both the behavior and thought processes regarding and influencing this behavior. CBT is also supported through research to be the most effective treatment for depression. The biggest factor for choosing CBT as a recommendation is that my friend is having suicidal thoughts, and with CBT those would get addressed immediately before starting a treatment plan. The treatment would not actually start until the therapist would know that she would be safe from harm. The treatment plan may involve her changing her cognitive processes thus changing her maladaptive behaviors. Along with changing
I am a lifelong musician and entrepreneur. I am 52 years young and have been a vocalist since I can remember, a keyboardist for over 25 years, and entrepreneur for just as long. I have also always been someone’s secretary, administrative assistant, bookkeeper, office manager, booking agent, and spouse and mother for about 24 years of that journey. Growing up in southern California, I have performed most styles of music and sung/played in a variety of bands and ensembles since 1980. I have covered female vocalists from the 30s and 40s through current artists. I moved from southern California to rural western Colorado in 1993 and things are unique here. In 2009, I wrote and co-produced my CD, Mosaic, with musicians in Nashville with the help of Lorna
I talked to Kristen about holding office hours for purchase questions and she didn’t think it was necessary. Employees are already going to her with questions throughout the day and she’s fine with that. She felt that if employees are working live files and have questions, they need immediate answers and shouldn’t have to wait for office hours. She did agree that supervisors need to be tied in. What if we ask employees to go to their supervisor with questions and if the supervisor can’t answer, the supervisor will go to Kristen or myself? The supervisor can even bring the employee with them. And as we discussed, I think an ongoing FAQ will be helpful, so we will get that implemented.
Create a 5-6 minute presentation using PowerPoint visuals. Make sure your PowerPoint follows the guidelines discussed in class. The purpose of the presentation should be to inform the audience. Your presentation should reflect a topic, theme, or issue relevant to your major. For ideas of topics, you may consider looking at issues of Crains’ Chicago, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, cnn.com, The Huffington Post, NPR.org, Slate, Wired, or industry-specific papers/journals in your area of study.
