I could not find my keys anywhere, this was not helping my situation. I was already late for work and with my current weekly track record, one more tardy day that week would cause me to get fired. My apartment was already a mess without me uprooting every pile of clothes to find my keys. I looked out my window while midst my self created turmoil to see storm clouds forming. This could possibly give me an excuse as to why I was late. When I turned around I saw my cat Randal getting up from his nap, his departing mass revealed my keys. I didn't have time to comprehend the absurdity of this and I grabbed them and left. Being on the top level of my apartment building was a luxury with the exception of the lack of an elevator. I reached my car …show more content…
Rumors around the office had been lightly surfacing for a few weeks about how people were being fired because of various petty mistakes. And I was sure I would be too for my late streak. At 5:00 PM I left work and headed home. I would be up late tonight because of a deadline for a new design. As I worked through the night I pondered the rumors and why I was not let go. But the next morning the answer made itself bluntly clear. As I was getting ready for work I received an email from my boss. It stated, “We at Calgary Design sincerely thank you for your service at the company, but the constant and quality record of customer satisfaction is sinking. We are losing clients often and little income is being brought in. It is with this note that we inform you that we will no longer require your services at this company.” My spirits sank as I read the the email and I found myself on the floor of my apartment once I had finished. I perused the email information and was shocked with what I saw. The email had been sent to 28 out of the 53 employees that worked my floor, and no doubt many more working at the three floor complex. This was my dream job, and I didn't have any back up plan for being laid off. Randal must have sensed my anguish as he meandered towards me and curled up on my chest. After about an hour of lying still in thought I eventually mustered up enough courage to go to work and retrieve all of my belongings.
Over the past 29 plus years of working in this school district as a teacher, vice principal, STEM coach, instructional coach, and Title 1 coordinator, I would have to say my involvement in Title 1 has had the steepest learning curve. In all of my other jobs, I was able to learn how to be a teacher, coach or administrator through university coursework and classes offered for credential renewal. However, being a Title 1 coordinator this year has put me in the “shoes of a new learner,” much like my former students where I feel as though my head may explode with all of my new knowledge. I would like to pass along my new learnings about Title 1 and why it is so important to the White Pine County School District.
Energy keeps all living organisms alive, as they need a continual supply of energy to function in order to survive. Some of these processes are continuous such as, metabolism, which is the chemical reactions which occur in the body, these occur by using or releasing energy from chemical substances. Another continuous process which use energy is the transporting of molecules in order for them to break down, and to build new ones. The breakdown of large molecules into their simpler forms to release energy is known as catabolism, for example, when glucose is used in a cell to release energy. And the opposite reaction, is called anabolism. This is when energy is used to build complex structures from simple cells, for example, tissue growth and

The sun was in the sky and it seemed to be the middle of the day. How could this happen? I checked my phone to see what it said. “4:00 p.m., November 9th,” I gasped in disbelief. This probably meant that I had my job back again! I happily walked through the crowds to my office, but I noticed that I was getting a lot of dirty looks. When I entered the office I was taken aback. Instead of being filled with mainly men, the office was made up of mostly women. A stern looking woman walked up to me. “You must be Evan,” she declared “Congratulations on your new job, we don’t really get a lot of good men that apply if you know what I mean.” As she led me through the lobby I heard many remarks “Hey sweet face,” snared a woman to my left. I heard roaring laughter arise from everyone. Suddenly, I felt extremely uncomfortable. “Is this what it’s always been like for women?’ I asked myself as I made my way up the stairs. I still heard muffled whispers from downstairs “He probably just got hired for his pretty face, men don’t have talent.” I overheard. All of the sudden, I didn’t want to be there anymore. Why would I want to work somewhere where I was criticized because of my
Tension still wracked the murderer's body, and his nerves remained on edge, however, both had started to dissipate some on his entry to the mall. Headed directly to Hannah, his senses were tuned for danger, but he apart from a couple of curious gazes, no-one paid Todd undue attention, and everything had become louder, clearer, every word and snippet of conversation, every flash of movement was notied and stored away, the exits scanned and the most direct route out of Tatiana's found. It was almost like he was on a hunt, hypersenstivie to even the smallest movement or sound, and rather than his pulse quicken when he tossed the newspaper down on the table in front of her, it slowed down. Time slowed down, and the words that slipped from his

About a week ago we were dismissed at 12:30 due to bad weather (snow). It was approximately 11:25 when we were given the announcement. It was roughly five minutes later when the snow started comming down, and comming down at a fast rate. At this point every one was excited to be leaving early, so no one was working. We were to report to lunch, then 6th hour, which would be our last. At lunch the snow was starting to pile on to the ground. It was getting bad. Even though we had two unproductive hours left, such as lunch and the last hour, which we sat and did nothing utill the bell rang. When it was time to go the snow had accumulated to about an inch, and was still falling hard. The
Picture this, you’ve been working the same job for 21 years and you’ve been promised a promotion to CFO of the company. This new promotion will come with a yearly salary of $2,000,000. Then one day, you’re on your way to work and you get into a car accident and break your leg. You spend the next year recovering and going through rigorous physical therapy, finally your recovery period is over and you feel great. You go back to your boss ready for your promotion, except he says to you that they’ve found someone new and won’t be giving you the promotion that you were promised. In fact, the company won’t even need you working anymore and have laid you off. This turn of events leaves you with no plan B because your whole life has been working towards
he title of Toni Morrison's short story, Recitatif," means, among other things, "a recital" of some sort, and the protagonist, Twyla, provides us with a "recital" of her connect with Roberta, also placed in the shelter where Twyla once lived. Morrison’s parents taught her much about understanding racism and growing up in predominantly white America. Her father was pessimistic about whites and blacks learning to tolerate each other, but Toni's mother was much more optimistic. It is no surprise, then, that Morrison's themes would address these issues.
Our company is called Red Diamond Energy Corporation (RDEC). RDEC was founded shortly after Drake McBride failed his other company and his rich father had to create a new job for him. Because Drake failed to succeed previously, RDEC was Drake’s last chance to make an impression. If he failed at Red Diamond, his father would never buy another company for him again. When Drake first got this company he hired me, Jimmy Lee Baylis, and Melton. Previously, I worked many years at the famous Exxon Gas Company, but got fired because of my connections to the great oil spill in Alaska. At the time, I had no clue Drake was a wacko and gladly accepted the job offer as project manager. I found out the hard way the reason why Drake’s dad had to buy companies for him is because Drake was not smart at all, and only gas stations would accept him.
On my way home, I had the same routine, cup of coffee, but this time I would buy a package of donuts or cookies for dessert later on that evening. $4.95 in the morning, $3.00 or $4.00 in the evening, every day, 5 days a week was spent at this company which adds up but this was my vise. Needless to say, I became very comfortable talking to these employees, we joked about politics and I even helped one employee get a job at Bank of America because I thought she had exceptional customer service skills and I knew the bank paid well because I have been working for them for the last 12 years. Back in April of this year, I lost my job. Like many Americans, I am finding it difficult to find a job. I am either over qualify, too old, no degree, or not enough experience. My salary at the bank was $22.00 a hour, a nice salary, that allowed me to have my morning Circle K coffee guilt free which of course that has all changed now. I am ashamed to admit, I have applied for Food Stamps and even then I do not know if I will get it as I have an appeal meeting this week. My resources are exhausted. I have borrowed money from family and friends, my savings account is less then $300 and now I am in the position of tapping into my 401K and just take the hit on the penalities. It is true, I was one of the naive that thought this could never happen to me. So to the story at hand now that you have an idea of one man's story. I went to the manager of Circle K to see if he would hire me. This was a new low for me internally anyway but at least I would get free coffee. To my surprise he said no and I will tell you why. It is not my creditabity, it not my qualifications or references and it is not I would not make an exceptional employee my Circle K manager told me. It is my age off the record of course. Who is
While is it the belief of many that the Principle of Specialization is the most repulsive feature introduced to us by Plato in the Republic, the opposing argument is that the use of specialization is a great idea. Businesses aim to operate with as much productivity as possible while having very little waste, so why not our communities? The Principle of Specialization is present in all aspects of the community, from its humble beginnings of only a handful of men1 and even more so in the state that grows into one that needs an army for protection 2. By examining each new layer that is added, we can study each new aspect of specialization that is added to the
