My college education is very important to me and plays a critical role in

goals I've set for my future. Like most other college students, I've got plans,

hopes, and ideas for my college life and time I'm to spend attending school.

Taking this course also plays a role in my college experience.

While having children and being a single mother may have initially caused

me to put off starting college, it's now my number one reason for attending

school. In today's society, it's almost essential for one to have a college degree

to have a successful career. It's very important for me to have a successful career

because I want to be able to provide for my children as well as give them every

possible advantage I can. I also hope that one day they will be able to say

they're proud of me for working hard and getting my education and know that

I did it for us, so that we could have a better life.

Most college students set goals for what they hope their college

experience will be and I'm no different. I've set goals to study hard and make

good grades and know that I've done my best. I've also set goals for myself

to make new friends and step out of my comfort zone and try new things.

While I can't totally live like the cliche college Freshman due to raising two

and not being able to go to all the school events or live on campus, I still

plan to attend as many events as I can to get the full "college experience".

I hope to get from this course some of the neccessary tools to help

me get through my Freshman year. I…...

Why You Should Care About Rugby

...Alexander Akin Jesse Ozog English Composition I/ Image Analysis September 29, 2011 Why You Should Care About Rugby Rugby is a sport like no other; it is much more than a sport. Rugby is not, "like soccer," as I all to often hear. Such a statement is a blasphemy of the good name of Rugby. Rugby is a natural evolution from soccer. The game of Rugby-football started with a man, William Webb Ellis, who followed his finely developed instincts by picking up the ball in a soccer game, as it was played then, and running with it. He broke a rule he recognized as stupid and limiting, starting a fine tradition of civil disobedience that was later adopted by Gandhi and King. You will find so many drawn to the game because they want to try something different, something exciting and new, and something that others may be just a bit fearful of. If that is not necessarily why they come to the game, they soon find a certain perverse pleasure in watching and listening to people's reactions when they tell them, "I play rugby."(Akin, 1) Most often the listener gets a strange look on their face, or grimace, and say, "Rugby, that's pretty rough, isn't it?"(General, 1) "Yeah, kinda,"(Akin, 1) the rugger responds, as they look you up and down and wonder what manner of person is this? This results in the statement changing from "I play rugby,"(Akin, 1) to, "I am a rugby player."(Akin, 1) A subtle but important difference as the first phrase states what one does; the second defines......

Advertising Can Tell You a Lot About a Country.

...Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Advertising can tell you a lot about a country. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer. Every country has its own culture and traditions. There is no doubt that an advertising campaign conducted in Russia will not have the same affect here in the United States. Let us take for example advertisement of food and restaurants. A huge amount of fast food stands suggest their services for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper here in Houston. The competition is very strong. Every week you get in your mail-box an envelope with different types of discounts in exchange for visiting them or ordering pizza. Watching TV you are also from time to time invited to visit a restaurant in order to taste some delicious food. It is not because it is easy to make money cooking but because the demand for such service is high. First of all, people like to go out sometimes to have dinner with friends. Second of all, it is often impossible to drive home for lunch. It can be time consuming. As for Russia, it is a great tradition to have dinner at home with the family and go to the restaurant for big holidays. Additionally fast food is not popular in Russia. So you will see advertisements of yogurts, coffee, dairy products and juice instead of restaurants and fast food stands. In conclusion I would like to add that in order to succeed in advertising campaign especially on the international market company must know......

What Do You Know About the Cold War?

...War just two years after WW2, 1947. Though what do people living during 1960 or even the children of the baby boomers know about the Cold War? I believe that the American Perception of the Cold War is very different from what was going on. The first person I interviewed was my father in law Dan Faris. Dan said “ To know about the Cold War all you have to know about is the Iron Curtain cause they could be synonymous. This is very true the Iron Curtain is defined by the Eastern and Western separation of Europe by Communism. This is what started the Cold War. During the European Financial Collapse people would kling to whatever promises people could make them to get them out of their poverty. Stalin came in and promised a better tomorrow and communism spread. The United States saw this as a threat and they wanted to stop Communism therefore Truman employed Marshall and henceforth Marshall aid was offered to the people in those European countries. Which in turn threatened Stalin. Dan said that this all started in 1957 which is actually not true though since he was born in 1955 may have been what he perceived. All of this actually started in 1945. During these games that the Russians and U.S. was playing with each other soon it turned ugly when bombs were placed in Cuba which was called the Cuban Missile Crisis. Dan’s perception said” I know a lot about this subject and I know it had to do with the Iron Curtain and Bay of Pigs and Cuban Missile Crisis.” Another......

Write About a Ceremony That You Have Attended

...Write about a ceremony that you have attended Easter, three years ago I went to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for my uncle’s wedding. I went with my parents, sister and most of my family from my mother’s side, which live in Britain. I chose to write about this ceremony because it was very memorable to me. I was able to see a lot of my family that I have not seen in many years. It was great to catch up with my aunts and uncles; and their children. This wedding was also a different experience to the Indian weddings that I have been to, here in Britain. In the morning of the wedding day all of the groom’s family drove in a coach to the wedding venue, which had a motel right next door, which we had stayed in for the day. Everyone had dressed in their traditional outfits, the women wore gorgeous and vibrantly coloured saris from bright pinks to dark blues and beautiful, sparkling jewellery; the men wore long cream and maroon tops with matching trousers and shoes that were pointed. We gathered in the empty car park where the groom sat in an opened roof, old style white car. The women from his family stood in front of the car in a small crowd and started to sing and dance to the beat of an Indian drum called a ‘dhol’, which was long and goes around the player’s neck by a fat strap. The drummer hit both sides of the drum with one thick stick and one thin stick, to an upbeat rhythm. As everyone is dancing and singing, you could see the sun reflect of the small jewels on the women’s...

What You Need to Know About Programming Languages

...details about the various parts. To add these details, design iterations are then included to complete the design. Next up we have a variation of these languages such as: o Procedural Programming Languages Procedural Programming involves a list of operations the program needs to complete to be able to attain the preferred state. It is a simple programming paradigm where every program comes with a starting phase, a list of tasks and operations, and an ending stage. Also called imperative programming, this approach comes with small sections of code that perform certain functions. These sections are made up of procedures, subroutines, or methods. A procedure is made up of a list of computations that should be done. Procedural programming lets a part of the code to be used again without the need to make several copies. It achieves this by dividing programmatic tasks into small sections. Because of this, programmers are also capable of maintaining and understanding program structure. Among the known procedural languages are BASIC and FORTRAN. These are the different types of computer programming languages that you can consider when planning to make a computer program. Procedural programming splits the program's source code into smaller fragments. Structured languages require more constraints in the flow and organization of programs. And object-oriented programs arrange codes and data structures into objects. To learn more about computer programming, including how you can......

Did You Know This About Argentina?

...Did You Know This About Argentina? “Don’t cry for me Argentina” is a phrase I am sure everybody has heard of at least once in their lifetime. The phrase is from a 1978 musical named Evita and was originally written and produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. The most recent remake starred Madonna as the lead character Eva Peron belting out this popular song in the musical. Eva Peron was in fact a real person she was the second wife to the Argentine President Juan Peron and she served as the first lady in Argentina from 1946 until she died in 1952. But this paper is not about Eva Peron but it is about Argentina, she was just an influential member of this country and a good way to start my essay off! (Musical Heaven) Argentina is a country located in South America at the southernmost part of the continent. The country borders Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile and Bolivia. The country was first founded in a 1502 voyage by Amerigo Vespucci with Spain establishing a permanent colony on the site in 1580 where Buenos Aires is now. Spain held Argentina until a revolution declared its independence from Spain on July 9, 1816. (Argentina, Country Reports) Argentina’s national hero for this accomplishment is General Jose de San Martin. After the country declared its independence different groups within Argentina waged war on each other trying to do what was best for the country, each with its own agenda of course, but unity was finally established and the constitution was written and......

Nothing About You

...a hard worker; I believe nothing is ever handed to you so you have to go get it. I worked hard to get to this point of my life and working even harder to get to the successful and graduate part of my life. I care more for some others than I do myself but I have a huge nonchalant attitude. I don’t really show anger or sadness much I always smile because I’m optimistic about life. I look at life as if something bad comes along, no need to dwell on it you can’t take it back so just move-on and improve what you did wrong if it’s possible. Strong is another trait I like to associate with myself because through all I have been through I made it and I’m still standing. I don’t let thing phase me very much because I’ve been through a lot so I’ve felt pain before and depression and all other worthless feelings so I have repressed that and won’t allow myself to feel it again. I am determined, strong-minded, outspoken, thoughtful, caring, and the most important, honest. Honesty is the most honorable trait to me because I feel being honest with someone can get you so much farther in life. My motivations in life is my background, I don’t want to go back to my past or where I’m from so I am determined to get away and I need a degree for that. Each of the perspectives play into my personality but the one that I would say really explains me is the Psychodynamic. Psychodynamic is where your inner conflicts or things that happen to you influence your behaviors. I’ve grown to be more......

Things You Didn't Know About Your Body

...muscle occupies about 22% less space than 1 pound of fat! 2. Maintaining physical fitness requires major lifestyle changes. False: Fitness can be achieved through small changes in what you eat and your level of activity. It’s really that simple. Remember that you can start out slowly; work your way up to a higher level of activity, and implement more dietary changes over time. Patience is essential. Don’t try to do too much too soon, and don’t quit before you have a chance to experience the rewards of improved fitness and a healthy diet! 3. “No pain, no gain” is a workout myth. True: “No pain, no gain” is a workout myth because while some muscle aches and pains are normal when beginning a new fitness routine, many types of pain are bad for you. There are some aches and pains, such as joint pain, bone pain, muscle strains, and ligament or tendon strains, which are bad, so if you experience these you should ease off of because they’ll only get worse if you ignore them. Always ease slowly into an exercise plan to avoid injury. 4. Weight loss should be the most important aim of doing exercise. False: It’s a fact that weight loss is the main reason people exercise at all, but whilst you probably will lose weight through exercise, the results can be slow to show and therefore lead to discouragement. If you’re starting a fitness program, don’t make weight loss your only goal! Strive to feel better or to have more energy. You’ll get more out of your program if you notice......

About Me, You, We , Yourself, Us and Everyone

Let me give a try to see what kind of image you have about me through my self-description. I hope that my impression about myself and your impression about me are not so different. Here it goes. I am a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like to read, I like to write; I like to think, I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen. I like to see the sunrise in the morning, I like to see the moonlight at night; I like to feel the music flowing on my face, I like to smell the wind coming from the ocean. I like to look at the clouds in the sky with a blank mind, I like to do thought experiment when I cannot sleep in the middle of the night. I like flowers in spring, rain in summer, leaves in autumn, and snow in winter. I like to sleep early, I like to get up late; I like to be alone, I like to be surrounded by people. I like country’s peace, I like metropolis’ noise; I like the beautiful west lake in Hangzhou, I like the flat cornfield in Champaign. I like delicious food and comfortable shoes; I like good books and romantic movies. I like the land and the nature, I like people. And, I like to laugh. I always wanted to be a great writer, like Victor Hugo who wrote "Les Miserable", or like Roman Roland who......

What You Don't Know About Apple

...What You Don’t Know About Apple Name BUS 620 Managerial Marketing Instructor Mary Wright January 18, 2016 It is widely understood that the strongest tree in the world needs both rain and sun to grow and bear fruit. Surely, Apple Inc. has seen its share of sunny days in abundance. Now, many investors believe dark clouds are circling and the rain will soon come. On the other hand, some financial analyst suggest a new phase is in the making and Apple’s best days are ahead. Although Apple closed out in the negative for the first time since 2008, the opportunities ahead outnumber the unavoidable threats that will arise. Notably, Apple has the opportunity to surpass its previous accomplishments. Undoubtedly, the tech behemoth has all of the components necessary to become a major global actor within the international community. This station stands far above holding the title of world’s greatest brand and largest company. Apple Inc. has the tools and the leadership to provide solutions for serious problems by forging partnerships with other Multi-Nationals (MNCs), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and even Nation States. True. There are some challenges Apple must face, then surmount in order to disprove doubting investors and ultimately achieve its goals. Many industry insiders believe iPhone sales have decreased significantly. This somehow portends to be the beginning of the end for Apple. First and foremost, consider the facts. Apple has great......
