The video described what most of us already know; but we just find it hard to live by. I know for myself I always try to walk or lift weights daily, but sometimes I just get busy and before I know it, it is bedtime. The video did bring up a few good points. I agree that most people do spend too much time watching TV and not getting up and moving like we should. I agree that is one of the contributing factors to obesity, diabetes and heart disease. I also agree that preventive medicine is the key to changing the health of everyone, especially children and young adults.

Most people do dive into exercise and give themselves a strike schedule that is hard to live by and that is the reason that they give up. Just making small changes and then gradually increasing them sounds like a good idea. I agree with parking farther away, taking the stairs and just walking sounds like a good way to start. My neighbors even put their treadmill and elliptical in the living room. They found this to help for their nightly routine. Instead of sitting on the couch they hopped on their exercise machines.

While working in the emergency room I have seen what having a unhealthy life style can do to you far to often. I have seen people that weigh 500pounds and we have to break out the big beds for them to lie on. Some we have had to put two stretchers together so they fit. To me this is terrible and it always leads back to someone whom helped him or her to get this way. After they get so big they can’t walk anymore so someone is still bringing them food. It is appalling and I don’t want to see anyone end up this way. So I thank you for what you do to help others.

I know for myself, my daily routine is getting up around six in the morning, dropping the kids off at school about eight in the morning and then coming home and cleaning house, and…...

Case 1-2

...Case 1-2: Cutting Corners 1. Discuss why each of the following options might be considered the wrong thing to do: a) Skip a portion of the count and guestimate. * The problem with guestimating the totals of the inventory count on the sample sections is that, during last year’s audit, Rick made a guestimate for the last few aisles of paper. Continuing to make guestimates will fail to prove that the system’s inventory count is correct. Therefore, a material misstatement of inventory could have been overlooked and would continue to be overlooked until a proper count of the sample has been completed. b) Eat time. * The firm has a quality control policy that does not allow eating time. If you were to eat the time against company policy and you continued to work for the firm in the future, you could be putting your own job at risk when the next audit is completed and the firm realizes that you broke company policy. Also, if you were to work without billing the hours it took to complete the audit it may help you to stay within your budget, but it gives the auditing team a false sense of the amount of time that should be budgeted for the inventory count. Therefore, eating time now would cause the firm to fail to charge the client for the proper amount in future audits. c) Ask the senior for more time. * Asking the senior for more time could be a problem if the budget is tight as it is. This may slow the entire audit down and it could reflect badly......

Mark 2:23-28

...“The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath” Mark 2:23-28 Jesus and The Synoptic Gospels Dr. Charette 04/08/13 Mark 2:23-28 “One Sabbath Jesus was going through the grainfields, and as his disciples walked along, they began to pick some heads of grain. The Pharisees said to him, ‘Look, why are they doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath?’ He answered, ‘Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need? In the days of Abiathar the high priest, he entered the house of God and ate the consecrated bread, which is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.’ Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath” (Mark 2:23-28, NIV). Introduction This paper will focus on the passage stated above, specifically the last statement; “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” The Sabbath is a reoccurring issue between Jesus and the religious rulers. In this paper I plan to research the reason why the Sabbath was created, give an exegetical view on this passage, and show how we can learn from this teaching. The Sabbath The Sabbath was established when God created the Earth. For in Genesis 2:2-3 it says, “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of......

Managmenet Accounting 2 Assignment 1

...Question 1 (10 marks) Vaughan Speed Clean — budgeting The Vaughan Speed Clean company is a young company that operates three car wash locations in the Greater Toronto Area. The owner relies on the abilities of three managers to run the car wash locations. At the end of each quarter, the owner evaluates the performance of each car wash location. His evaluations determine the size of the location manager’s bonus. If the location achieves an annual ROA1 of 10%, the location manager gets $1,000 for the quarter. The bonus is also augmented by $1 for every $10 the location exceeds its profit target. However, the bonus contract gives the owner the right to make subjective adjustments for the effects of factors he deems outside the control of the location managers. In the past few months, he has made such adjustments for the adverse effects on revenue of having city workers repaving the street just in front of one car wash location. By far the largest uncontrollable factor that is regularly considered is the weather. In particular, sales volume decreases sharply when it rains or snows. The budget, which is updated at the beginning of the month, is prepared on an assumption of hours of good weather. Inevitably, those assumptions are not accurate. The last quarter of 2013 was atypical. It snowed and rained many more hours than were assumed in the budget, and actual profits for the three locations were below the budgeted profit level. The results for the Jane-HW7 location are......

Misha Chapters 1 and 2

...Misha: chapters 1 and 2 I really was not thrilled or interested in this book at all at first. The beginning was very slow and it took a while for the story to pick up, but once it did, it was good. This was until the end of the last chapter. It felt very slow again and it just described the living conditions she lived through on her own for pages. It seemed repetitive even though it really wasn’t. The one thing I questioned was how old Misha actually was. When she was put into a home for hiding with another family, she was given the identity as a 4 year old because she could pass for that age. However, when she ran away and had to live on her own, she knew exactly what to do and how to take care of herself in the harsh conditions of the winter break. I also noticed that she talks about her life of present day relating to the past. For instance, in the book she wrote, “From that time on I always slept with my shoes on. (Today I own over three hundred pairs of shoes, and I don’t need a psychiatrist to tell me why I buy so many more than I could possibly need.)” Throughout the last chapter, she did this many times. When she was brought to the home where she was being hid, she was put into a closet like room as her bedroom. She was expected to help out around the house and she could only do things when she was told she could. She was allowed to leave the house only once a week and that was to go get eggs and other ingredients from a man who they called grandpas farm. Misha...

Lit 1-Task 2

...LIT1 - Task 2 Mark J. Fortenberry May 9, 2015 LIT1 - Task 2 Company X has reported three situations that have occurred that require investigating. Since employment and hiring practices are a part of my duties here at Company X, I have been charged with the investigation into these situations. In the subsequent report, the laws that companies must abide by will be outlined and how these laws affects the outcome in each of these three situations. The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 is one that ties in heavily to the first situation. “The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year” (Solis, N.D.). This leave must be for the birth and care of a newborn, placement of an adoption, to care for an immediate family member, or for an employee that has a serious health condition. For qualification, an employee must have at least 12 months of continuous employment with 1,250 hours worked within that 12 months. This issue involves said Company X and an employee that will be identified as Employee A. Under the FMLA, both company and employee must meet the requirements under the law. As an example, Company X must have at least 50 employees, while in reality, the company has over 75 employees. Employee A needs to have worked for Company X for at least 12 months and at least 1250 hours within that 12 months; the employment length for Employee A has been 24 months and met the......

Case 2-1

...CASE 2-1 Ed Walters & Robin Smith from Brixton surgical Devices plan to increase inventory and give discounts of 25% discounts is unethical in this case because this plan is executed for their own good to gain bonuses not for the company’s interest. What they did will certainly decrease overhead cost by distributing it among inventory stock but in the balance sheet it will show that the inventory is more than the cash and so the quick ratio will be very low, and the increase in production means an increase in material and labor hours and machine hours therefor there is an increased cost here. On the other hand when they will give the 25% discount on orders placed in October and November for delivery in December this doesn’t guarantee the increase in sales and if sales does increase this will certainly affect first quarter of next year sales negatively, and with a company that never gave discounts before 25% is a big percentage. Another dilemma is that the production should follow the market demand not the other way round with their strategy the production might be too large for the demand, if they follow the JIT (just in time) production process they will save a lot of money on the inventory stock The shareholders objective is focused on the company’s interest and in long term profit but what Ed and Robin did is a short term benefit which leads to increasing their bonus for this year (you get what you measure) and a decision of giving discount should come through several......
