In the essay, “The Art of Failure” by Malcolm Gladwell we are given the meanings of “choking” and panicking while being in a stressful situation. Gladwell began to illustrate his writing by giving us other people's story, with the stories of Jana Novotna, John F Kennedy Jr, to name a few. Gladwell starts off by telling the story of Jana Novotna a professional volleyball player who developed stress when she saw who her opponent was, as she was getting near her chance of winning the championship; she lost it when “choking” took over her.
After watching the video Precious Knowledge, the first example of ethnic studies being threatened/ facing elimination is that senate is passing bills like 2881 that act against diversity and programs that support and culture beyond what is sought to be “fit” in the American educational system. Programs that promote ethnic studies gives students the pride and knowledge of where they have come from and therefore they feel more engaged in the classroom. Leaders like Tom Horne have the right to their own opinion but are being oppressive by not embracing the culture of different ethnic groups. By not attending these classes and trying to relate to these diverse communities; he is creating a dystopia to the American youth. Political leaders should
e.) Education/ pg.488: is a group’s formal system of teaching knowledge, values, and skills. This video clearly shows how the three children did in school. They wanted to balance between getting an education and working. In one of the beginning scenes of the video, it showed Zulema in a meeting with her advisor. She was asking her what her future plans were after high school. Zulema knew that her situation may not get better. This is a typical situation where an immigrant child who is a part of a child labor would not be able to finish the grade they are in. Some many make it to high school, but nothing beyond that point. They know their place and would not be able to leave their family to carry on without them. The children in the video
The world we live in has made many mistakes, and it’s far from perfect. In Chip Wards letter “We Screwed Up” 2012 to his granddaughter Maddie. Chip tells us that he wants to apologize for his and past generations mistakes of being ignorant. He is sorry for depleting all the natural resources, the species going instinct, the chemical obsession and the increase in advertising he refers to as confusion.
It wasn’t anyone's fault it was pearly an accident, but there is sometimes that players target other players causing intentional injuries. For Instance, major league games where two rivals play it's called a rivalry game. Both teams don't like each other so they target. Targeting is where the pitcher throws the baseball at the player when they step in the box to
Strategic staffing is important for any company. CanGo has several projects already started, with new ones being developed; a good staffing strategy is going to be a key element for the near future. The staff that CanGo has is unproductive, the staff they need is non-existent. The ASRS systems are a good idea, it would free up staff for other areas, but it would also take staff away from already important projects.

In the first three minutes of the YouTube video, the Mythbusters conduct an experiment to observe a person’s driving ability while using a cell phone and while driving drunk. To do so, the experimenters come up with the hypothesis, “driving using a cell phone is just as dangerous as drunk driving.” There are two independent variables. One variable is the cell phone, and the other is the alcohol. On the other hand, the dependent variable is the instructor who is giving the driving test. They test this hypothesis using three experimental conditions. First, to get acquainted with the course, each of the two people drive cell phone free and sober. The next experimental condition consists of Jamie, one of the experimenters, distracting each driver with a phone
The Graeters video relates to what we have learned about business and change by showing us that change within a business is virtually inevitable. As times change and technology becomes more apparent, business must also change or use valuable resources to become more efficient to keep up with, or become more successful than the surrounding competition. Graeters experience with change was a bit different than that of other companies. Before technological innovations brought about the refrigerator and modern ice cream machines ice cream was a delicacy, it was something people couldn’t get every day or whenever they desired. In the times after though, many companies began to mass produce ice cream making thousands of gallons per day. Graeters
If I was going to college next year I would want to have a personal class about sports and athletes. The video made Monsters University look like a good college. It looked like the students had a lot of freedom when it came to choosing classes and clubs .I think a lot of people should go here because of they much more choices. You could probably even create your own club if you don’t like the choices
I found the signing statements the most interesting in Chapter Seven. A signing statement is an announcement made by the president at the time of signing a bill into law. This is used sometimes to show the presidents’ interpretation of the new law and their predictions of the many benefits of the new law. It also has been used to identify sections of the law that are considered improper or unconstitutional. There have been many signing statements throughout history but many of them were not recorded.
Throughout his presentation, Hans Rosling shows that the rich and wealthy release the most carbon emissions, but they are often the ones telling Africa or another developing country they shouldn't begin using fossil fuels and other technology because it's hurting the environment. Rosling claims that the rich end look down at the "poor" people and say, "You cannot live like us, you will destroy the planet." Technology, however, is key to progressing out of poverty and developing. As shown in his graphs, the wealthy release the most emissions, but shake their finger at developing countries that are starting to use technology and/or burn fossil fuels. An example used in the video is Africa and the coal available to them to provide warmth and light.
