Tim Berta’s presentation on the bus wreck and how it has affected him and how he is getting through it with a positive attitude was very inspiring. Being a valedictorian and two-sport athlete in college, life never seemed so good. Tim was a humble guy who had qualities about him that would allow him to do what he wanted to do later in life. After the wreck, basically not being able to do anything that he use to be able to do must have been the hardest thing to stay positive in those situations. Personally I believe the slide show Tim presented with the four seasons will stick with me the most and have the most impact on my life in the future. For Tim to stay positive in the light of all setbacks and difficulties is truly amazing not only on a personal level but also a mental level as the tasks he had to go through and cope with. Going forward in my life I think I will take advantage of everything I have and no matter the situation to stay positive and keep encouraging my self throughout all my seasons whether the times are tough or great. I also think that people cannot be taken for granted in your life. Everyone needs to let the people they care about, know that they do everyday. You never know what may happen to someone on any given day. Tim Berta is truly an inspirational person who’s story will stick with me the rest of life of how in the light of a tragic event he was able to with the help of family and friends persevere, and with a positive and determined attitude overcome multiple setbacks that doctors and surgeons said he more than likely would never be able to do…...

Devil and Miss Prym

...almost fifteen years, old Berta had spent every day sitting outside her front door. The people of Viscos knew that this was normal behaviour amongst old people: they sit dreaming of the past and of their youth; they look out at a world in which they no longer play a part and try to find something to talk to the neighbours about. Berta, however, had a reason for being there. And that morning her waiting came to an end when she saw the stranger climbing the steep hill up to the village, heading for its one hotel. He did not look as she had so often imagined he would: his clothes were shabby, he wore his hair unfashionably long, he was unshaven. And he was accompanied by the Devil. 'My husband's right,' she said to herself. 'If I hadn't been here, no one would have noticed.' She was hopeless at telling people's ages and put the man's somewhere between forty and fifty. 'A youngster,' she thought, using a scale of values that only old people understand. She wondered how lone he would be stayine. but just stay one night before moving on to a fate about which she knew nothing and cared even less. Even so, all the years she had spent sitting by her front door waiting for his arrival had not been in vain, because they had taught her the beauty of the mountains, something she had never really noticed before, simply because she had been born in that place and had always tended to take the landscape for granted. As expected, the stranger went into the hotel. Berta wondered if she......

India Discrimination

...returns to parents and that their future roles, being mainly reproductive and perhaps including agricultural labor, require no formal education. Kalyani Menon Sen and A.K.Shivakumar (2001) found that girls in India are discriminated against in several ways – fewer months of breastfeeding less of nurturing and play, less care or medical treatment if they fall ill, less of “special” food, less of parental attention. As a result, girls are far more susceptible than boys to disease and infections, leading to poor health and a shorter lifespan. It is this life-long discrimination in nurturing and care that is the real killer of girls – less visible and dramatic, but as unequivocally lethal as female feoticide and infanticide. Berta Esteve – Volart (2004) described that gender discrimination against women in the market place reduces the available talent in an economy, which has negative economic consequences. Gender discrimination takes many forms. Many social practices seen as normal from a religious or cultural point of view (which may have deep historical roots) have women out of the economic mainstream. These social practices may have profound economic consequences because they do not allow society to take advantage of the talent inherent in women. Anna-Maria Lind (2006) stated that India’s population still leads traditional lives in rural areas. Religious laws and traditions still determine the lives of many people, particularly......

Sanch Panza En Don Quijote de La Mancha

...también humor y compasión. Cuando Sancho vuelve a casa por última vez, ha ganado confianza en sí mismo y en su capacidad para resolver problemas, independientemente de su condición de clase baja. Aunque el narrador no nos dice esto tengo la impresión de que cuando los otros personajes no entienden a Sancho, este escudero con frecuencia les recuerda a sus oyentes que Dios sabe lo que quiere decir. Con esta expresión muestra que la fe en Dios puede ser una fuerza humanizada que distingue a los hombres verdaderamente honorables, incluso aun cuando tienen orígenes de clase baja.

Conflict and Decision Making

...potential conflicts in the workplace in a most intelligent, competent, and effective manner Evidence-based Management and its Relevant Application In order for managers to be effective and efficient in today’s complex-business world, they must be fully in touched with reality. In other words, they must be well equipped and be able to make ethical decisions by using sound or good judgements and managerial principles, especially in difficult situations. Therefore, understanding and embracing evidence-based management (EBMgt) is vital and even beneficial for an organization. EBMgt is rooted in scientific evidence or knowledge. It can be defined as “the systematic use of the best available evidence to improve management practice” (Berta & Kohn, 2009, p. 5-18). Even though EBMgt is often used in the medical field due to its positive, progressive, and systematic results, it is also applicable in the business environment. Case in point, Liberty Tax Service is the researched company of choice. This company provides income-tax preparation services and bank products such as credit-card payments and refund-anticipation loans (RALs) for scores of people each tax season, both locally and nationally. Therefore, by integrating EBMgt into its management practice, the company could benefit from it greatly. For example, if the company conducts a comparative analysis of its 2010 and 2011 income-tax records or evidence, it would be able to identify a number of key factors......

The Evolution of the Dolphin

...sensory system includes development of a visual system, olfaction, taste, and sound production. Lastly the urinary system and maintenance of water balance are reviewed. As present in all mammals, dolphin skin consists of three layers; and outer layer (the epidermis), a middle layer (the dermis), and a deep layer, which forms the blubber (the hypodermis. The skin of dolphins is distinguished by the absence of glands and hair. The structure of the epidermis in marine mammals is multilayered stratified epithelium that consists of layers typical to that of terrestrial mammals: stratum basale, stratum spinosum, and stratum corneum. The outermost layer of the epidermis, the stratum corneum, consists of a layer of flattened, keratinized cells (Berta & Sumich, 1999). Dolphin skin is smooth with a rubbery feel. Cutaneous ridges have been described on the surface of the skin of some dolphins, however the function of these structures is still unknown. It has been suggested that these ridges may play a role in tactile sensing or in hydrodynamic characteristics (Shoemaker & Ridgway, 1991). Dolphin epidermis is rather thin, however it is 10-20 times thicker than in terrestrial animals. This characteristic makes them susceptible to scarring. Scarring helps scientists differentiate and identify individuals within a dolphin population. Fig. 6. Dolphin skin, illustrating the three layers of that comprise epidermis, the dermis and hypodermis. The dermis is composed of dense......

While arguing with Bartolo, Almaviva manages to slip a love letter to Rosina. But when Bartolo demands to see the letter, the girl substitutes a laundry list. Figaro dashes in to warn that their hubbub has attracted a crowd. Police arrive to silence the disturbance. As an officer is about to arrest him, Almaviva whispers his identity and is released.

Business Intelligence

(Airinei & Berta, 2012, p. 72) Semantic business intelligence is referred to as a new generation of business intelligence. Semantic business intelligence data storage is different from traditional business intelligence data storage in that it stores data in a triple store instead of a data warehouse. The data is analyzed differently with semantic business intelligence as well. Traditional business intelligence analyzes the data by utilizing mining tools but semantic business intelligence replaces those tools with FCA or Formal Concept analysis. “FCA is a method used for data analysis, knowledge representation and information management where the data is structured in units in the guise of formal abstractions of concepts of human thought, allowing a comprehensive and easily understandable interpretation.” (Airinei & Berta, 2012, p. 75) Semantic business intelligence incorporates two new technologies unheard of in traditional business intelligence, as well as the use of FCA triple stores that allow many more functions that traditional business intelligence was capable of. Business intelligence can benefit many organizations and has......

...Competition, Oligopoly and Monopoly. The first market structure that we will discuss is perfect competition. Perfect competition is a theory that is composed of six assumptions that if a market meets all six assumptions, then the market can be considered as a perfectly competitive environment and no individual or company has power to manipulate the market in their favor or increase the price of the item or service. “Perfect competition, neutralizes these strategic behaviors and conflictual interactions, resulting in the elimination of these distributions conflicts…perfect competition (associated with constant returns) dissolves these conflicts of appropriation since every individual can be paid according to his marginal contribution” (Berta, Julien, Tricou, 2012, Pg. 7). The first assumption in a perfect competition is that there is a large number of sellers/producers that saturate the market resulting in no single seller having the ability to affect the price in the industry. The second is that there is a large number of consumers/buyers allowing the market to be safe from having one single buyer/consumer having market power. When considering price elasticity in a perfect competition market, the demand is constant because no seller or consumer can affect the price, resulting in the elasticity being perfectly elastic. The third assumption is that the product is homogeneous, meaning that the product is the same regardless of the producer. This allows the......

Market Structures

...Next we would need to take note of the degree of vertical integration. Vertical integration is the process of combining the different stages of production and distribution to be managed by a single enterprise (Berta, 2012). Another important feature when analyzing market structure is the levels of product differentiation. Finally, we must look at the market churn, otherwise known as customer turnover. Analysis of the market churn will give you the number of customers that are willing to make changes in consumption within the market. When these features are analyzed and interpreted we can begin to break down the market structure into its individual types. The individual types in play in the market structure are perfect competition, monopolistic competition, oligopoly, and monopoly (Berta, 2012). There is no better structure to lead off the break down than perfect competition. This is because is a benchmark in which all other structures are built (Berta, 2012). When you look at the market structures as a whole, there is perfect competition and the rest of the structures falling under the category of imperfect competition. “Competition is a rivalry between individuals, and it arises whenever two or more parties strive for something that all cannot obtain” (Berta, 2012). This is a great quote that provided accurate insight into what it means to engage in competition. On the other hand it is quite ironic that “perfect completion” by nature involves little to no......

...obvious cares or loves her much more than she does him. Hedda will not call Aunt Julie by her first name because she feels it is too informal and wants to keep her distance. On the other hand, Julie calls Hedda by her first name until the bonnet incident and she gets upset. George keeps calling Mrs. Elvsted, Miss Rysing because he remembers her as the girl he used to date. Eilert calls Mrs. Elvsted, Thea, so we know that they are on intimate terms. At the same time, Hedda will not let him call her by her first name because it is not proper. When she wants to manipulate Mrs. Elvsted, into thinking they are good friends, Hedda insists that they use each other’s first names. At the beginning of the play, Julie makes a big deal out of Berta referring to George as Dr. Tesman now, instead of Mr. Tesman. The reader will quickly realize that how each character address the other has great significance, and provides the reader insight on the level of intimacy in each relationship. There are two allusions to Greek and Roman mythology in ‘Hedda Gabler.” The first is that of Dionysus, also called Bacchus, the god of wine, and the craziest party animal ever. Dionysus was the person throwing parties your mother warned you about. We are talking orgies, wild animals, crazed dancing, fire, and of course, lots and lots of alcohol. When the men return from their wild stag party, Tesman and Brack both report on the night’s festivities. Tesman uses the word orgy, and Eilert is a......
