As Maria Robinson once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Nothing could be closer to the truth. But before you can begin this process of transformation you have to stop doing the things that have been holding you back.
Here are some ideas to get you started: 1. Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends. 2. Stop running from your problems. – Face them head on. No, it won’t be easy. There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them. We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems. That’s not how we’re made. In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall. Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time. This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become. 3. Stop lying to yourself. – You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can’t lie to yourself. Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult chance we can take is to be honest with ourselves. Read The Road Less Traveled . 4. Stop putting your own needs on the back burner. – The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too. Yes, help others; but help yourself too. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to…...

Active Liberty

...Mariah WolfeHist 410Active Liberty Paper5/1/12 The book Active Liberty by Stephen Breyer is a response to Antonin Scalia’s A Matter of Interpretation. Breyer takes a liberal stance on issues that Scalia addresses. Three points that I found interesting are the six elements Breyer uses in interpreting law and how he emphasizes them, the difference between modern liberty and active liberty, and how Breyer applies active liberty in different scenarios. Early on in the book, Breyer says that there are six elements used when interpreting a law - language, history, tradition, precedent, purpose, and consequence. However, he goes on to say that although all judges uses these different elements, they emphasize them all differently. For example, one judge might put more emphasis on purpose and consequence, while another might concentrate more on tradition and language. This can affect whether or not a judge looks at a law with a loose or strict interpretation. One who uses the first combination might have a strict view of the law because he or she knows what will happen afterwards. Taking into account language and tradition, however, might allow one to have a broader view of the law because they are taking into account how the laws were used before and what exactly the law is saying. Another point that Breyer touches on, which could also be considered the main argument in the book, is the difference between modern and active liberty. Modern liberty, also known as civil liberty,......

Active Learning

...Active learning is learning which engages and challenges students thinking using real-life and imaginary situations. Students are encouraged for example through the method of pair work to develop their own thoughts and ideas, to resolve problems by themselves, and to talk to and listen to their peers improving on their listening skills. (Chickering and Gamson1987), suggests that students must do more than just listen. ‘They must read, write, discuss, or be engaged in solving problems. Most important, to be actively involved, students must engage in such higher-order thinking tasks as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. Within this context, it is proposed that strategies promoting active learning be defined as instructional activities involving students in doing things and thinking about what they are doing’.Students and their learning needs are at the center of active learning which makes it very effective when introducing this pedagogical approach in any lesson. Some active-learning techniques are easier to use in your class and some are harder when it comes to teaching. Teaching methods are constantly changing with teacher and school introducing new pedagogical approaches to teaching, but time and time again active learning producing a much higher sense of achievement and accomplishment in comparison to the old didactic methods of route learning in school. Teaching is becoming more practical nowadays where students are becoming actively more and more involved in...

...I decided to write about the battlefield of Brandywine. I choose this topic because is an example of never get confident at war. This battle is mainly about how the British army takes over Philadelphia. The first major point I found interesting was how the Washington army overestimated the British army. The Washington army believed they could take an advantageous position and hoped to force a fight at chads ford. Another interesting point was the formulated plan by the British army. The British army made the Washington army believed they were going to march as if they intended to meet Washington. However the majority of the army march north of Wistar’s Ford and surprised the Washington army. This allowed the British to outwit Washington and his army. Another sub-section that I choose was the battle of Paoli. I choose this sub-section mainly because this battle occurred at midnight after Washington’s defeat at Brandywine. This battle is mainly about the surprise attack made by the British army. I think is interesting how Washington didn’t want to give up and send Wayne‘s Division to get behind the British and, if possible, cut off their baggage train as they crossed the river. Another interesting major point is how even though Wayne was trying to surprise the British instead Wayne was surprised first by the British army. I think this website was informative because explains in good details the events in history. I would use it again in the future when I take the second......

...Active Directory Scenario: The small business that you created new domain controllers for now wants you to develop a backup and recovery plan for Active Directory. You also need to develop a monitoring scheme to ensure the new Active Directory environment remains available. Explain this backup and recovery plan along with the tools needed to monitor the active directory environment. Submission Requirements: Submit your response in a 1-2 page Microsoft Word document through the Questa Learning Plan. Evaluation Criteria: Your instructor will use the following points for evaluating your performance in this assessment: * Did you discuss a backup strategy or Active Directory? * Did you discuss a recovery plan for Active Directory? * Did you discuss a monitoring scheme for Active Directory? Windows Server Backup provides several Group Policy settings that give you some limited control over how backups work on your servers. With these backup policies, you can mitigate some of the risks associated with people performing unauthorized backups to obtain access to unauthorized data. The options include: Allow Only System Backup If this is set, Windows Server Backup can only back up critical system volumes. It cannot perform volume backups. Disallow Locally Attached Storage as Backup Target When enabled, this setting does not allow backups to locally attached drives. You can only back up to a network share.

...IS3340: Week 1 Assignment 1: Adding Active Directory Bob Johnson IS3340: Windows Security 11/02/2014 Arthur Salmon When evaluating the current set up for all of the PCs that we have at Ken 7 Windows and the purchase of a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) software package, I would definitely recommend that we use Active Directory (AD). There are several reasons to use AD. I will give a few reasons why we should use AD. My first reason is that with the purchase of the new servers we have a wider area to protect. With this being that, we have purchased several new servers that need to be more secure and restrict access to the key people or groups of people that need access to pertinent information. Secondly, by doing this we can activate a more secure password criteria. Making passwords of no less than eight characters long and they must contain a capital letter, a number, and a special character. These passwords will be set to renew anywhere from 30 – 90 days. The most common setting for this feature is 90 days. A notification will sent to the user 14 days prior to the password’s expiration and prompt the user to change their password. Thirdly, special access tokens will be used to insure the identity of the user. A smart card will be in place. This smart card slips into a slot and read a magnetic strip, a microchip that is imbedded into the card, or a by a bar code on the back of the card. Using the bar code will be the less expensive route to take.......

Active Directory

...Project- Windows 2012 Management 12/5/14 Active Directory is a directory service that Microsoft developed for Windows domain networks and is included in most Windows Server operating systems as a set of processes and services. An Active Directory domain controller authenticates and allows all users and computers in a Windows domain type network- assigning and enforcing security policies for all computers and installing or updating software. When a user logs into a computer that is part of a Windows domain, Active Directory checks the submitted password and determines whether the user is a system administrator or normal user. Active Directory makes use of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) versions 2 and 3, Microsoft's version of Kerberos, and DNS. Active Directory, like many information-technology efforts, originated out of a democratization of design using Request for Comments or RFCs. The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), which oversees the RFC process, has accepted numerous RFCs initiated by widespread participants. Active Directory incorporates decades of communication technologies into the overarching Active Directory concept then makes improvements upon them. Microsoft previewed Active Directory in 1999, it was first released with Windows 2000 Server edition, and revised it to extend functionality and improve administration in Windows Server 2003. Additional improvements came with Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008, and......

...drastic repercussions on a business. Customers expect quality from you in your products, but that is not the only quality that matters. It is important to master the skills to provide customers with excellent quality in customer service too. Effective communication skills can help Abhey connect with your customers and allow you to develop a long-term business relationship with them. Abhey is currently on the right path in his quest for learning the English language by enrolling and attending ESL (English as a Second Language) night classes however, not everything can be taught or learned in a classroom. Time, repetition and experience will all play important roles in the mastering of English communication skills. Abhey will need to rely not only on the advice and assistance of his co-workers, but on his experience and understanding of the English language as well. Realizing the importance of studying English, not only to speak, but to read, write and comprehend the English language will be key. Merely picking up tips on spoken English to learning the language as a whole is not enough, as words can be taken out of context. Perhaps taking additional English courses, such as a Business English Course, in addition to his ESL course could advance Abhey’s understanding of the language. I do believe that Abhey’s supervisor should be made aware of the fact he is still struggling with his business writing skills and that the other representatives are continuing to help......

Active Studies

...Active Study Eastern University Active Study While online programs have many strengths and offer the student accessibility to quality education they may not have had, there is a sever weakness inherent to on-line education and can pose a threat to the active online learner. One such threat against the active learner in a virtual classroom is the lack of social interaction with instructors and peers. Studies show that the interaction between the student/instructor/peers is the most consistent factor in influencing the student’s performance in the classroom. (Lan, 2015) Students in traditional classrooms are naturally able to ask direct face-to-face questions, participate in team activities and build social relationships. On-line interaction generally occurs through course discussion boards, chat rooms and e-mail. Unlike traditional students who receive timely feedback, some time passes between the initial post and the reply and subsequent, follow-up messages and replies. Wang and Newlin (2002) identified that overall this type of on-line communication is slow, limits the type the amount and depth of interaction, and removes feelings of connection. Margret Martyn (2005) performed a study on the learning styles and the correlation of success. A major finding in the study showed that on-line students scored lower on an exam than the face-to-face students. She compared this finding to the data she collected from a student perception survey. ......

Active Shooter

...Active School Shooter Introduction The intention of this paper is to look at and present some issues and strategies that members of a school community think about when trying to create safer schools. Particularly when addressing an active shooter in a school setting. A major issue to consider when trying to keep all schools safe, is the simple fact that no two schools are the same. Understanding this can lead us to the conclusion that it is impossible to have one global plan or program that can be 100% effective in all schools. “Violence prevention programs work best when they incorporate multiple strategies and address the full range of possible acts of violence in schools. For any set of policies to work, it must be established and implemented with the full participation and support of school board members, administrators, parents, students, community members, emergency response personnel, and law enforcement.” (Kramen, 2008.) If these responsibilities were not shared, the success rate for safe school policies would be very low. Parents send their children to school and think that during that time they are studying and doing other productive, educational things. The last thing parents expect is something terrible happening to their child while at school. School violence is happening more frequently than it should and something needs to be done to stop it. Not only does an act of school violence, especially a school shooting, affect the individual student it reflects......
