Decades Apart Yet Closely Related

The popularity of kings and queens has always fluctuated and are viewed differently from all over the world. The British royal family is one of the most famous. Although they have no political power, they tend to have a lasting impression on the country. Lady Diana Spencer became part the royal family in 1980 and suffered with the constant pressure and criticism from the outside world. With attention toward Diana gaining popularity, the royal family had become more of a tourist attraction than a symbol of the nation. Decades later, the commoner, Kate Middleton has a more difficult time filling in after the lasting impression of Princess Diana. Kate keeps working at filling in the footsteps of Diana and has gained the attention and recognition of the country. Although decades apart and from different backgrounds, Princess Diana of Wales and Kate Middleton both managed to capture the country’s attention through their marriage of potential heirs of England and developed lasting cultural impressions throughout the country as a result.

Lady Diana Spencer was first noted as being a shy, young kindergarten teacher who went through many conflicts leading to and throughout her marriage with Prince Charles. Diana went through to a large extent of drama in her childhood years. Diana did not necessarily have the best home life, but she learned to make the best of it and as a result she became a stronger person (Leete-Hodge 20). The hardships began in 1969 with the divorce of her parents. Diana and her siblings stayed with her father, visiting their mother often, and tried to continue with a normal life. Unfortunately things did not remain normal for long and in 1975 Diana’s grandfather passed away. This then was a great benefit being that Diana was named Lady Diana and her father…...

...Running head: Discipline and Management Discipline and Management: Different Yet Related Grand Canyon University: EDU-450 March2012 Discipline and Management: Different Yet Related One of the most important things that a teacher can do to be effective is to manage his or her classroom. Educators must learn how to manage their classrooms and how to discipline the students. Teachers must know the definitions of discipline, management, behavior and misbehavior in order to know how to identify and handle different discipline and behavior problems in the correct way. A teacher must have a well-managed classroom in order to teach students effectively. Discipline is defined as the act or manner of managing; handling, direction, or control. (A.U, 2012). On the first day of class the teacher needs to establish the rules, and have order in their classroom. Then the instructor should maintain the order in the classroom during all times. Classroom management has to do with procedures, routines, and structure (Marshall, 2010). The teacher should create a plan for managing the classroom. Managing the classroom requires teachers to create a routine of how they give instruction, how they switch from one lesson to the next, and how they handle discipline problems. Teachers should also discipline the students who do not follow the rules so that it would create a safe learning environment for the students as well as him or her self when the classroom is managed...

...of family conflict during childhood” (Kelly 3). Lora Heims Tessman, author of Children of Parting Parents says, “most of the adolescents were overly depressed . . . many had conscious suicidal thoughts . . . a minority showed increased acting out with self-destructive components, but without anxious depression” (327). These are common psychological effects of divorce on children. There are also many social effects that divorce has on children. The child often feels unconnected to his or her peers. He or she feels “unable to make or maintain friendships and complained about being ‘unconnected’ to [his or her] peers” (Tessman 327). Also contributing to feeling unconnected to their peers is that “in numerous studies over the past three decades, divorced children have been reported to be more aggressive and impulsive and to engage in more antisocial behaviors, compared with matched samples of never-divorced children” (Kelly 6). The divorce that these children experience causes them to act and react in ways that are not considered socially acceptable, and distancing themselves from their peers. “Diagnostically, the adolescents varied greatly, but did share a number of clinical features. The great majority had either lost a previous enjoyment or learning or were, increasingly, cutting and failing classes” (Tessman 327). The children of these divorced families have become so mixed up that they do not know who they are any longer. Things that they once loved or enjoyed, things......

The "New" Decade

...Andrea Smart L. Singleton English 102, RZ6 April 8, 2011 The “New” Decade The Twenties were known as “the Roaring Twenties” and “the Jazz Age.” These nicknames represent exactly what the Twenties were. The changes that happened during this time were good and bad, but they were mostly positive. Women had the right to vote, they were becoming modernized, and jazz became a new sound. This decade should be viewed exactly as it is. This decade was a time of great change for America in general. Before the “flapper” emerged, “the Gibson Girl was the rage”. The Gibson Girl was inspired by Charles Dana Gibson’s drawings. She was the total opposite of the “flapper” that was soon to come. She was able to participate in some sports including golf, roller skating, and bicycling. She had long hair, and her attire was a long, straight skirt with a shirt that had a high collar (Rosenberg). She was not a risk taker and did not date. After the “Gibson Girl” came the “flapper.” The term came from Great Britain. It described a young girl still in the middle of becoming a woman (Rosenberg). It literally was defined as “a fledgling, yet in the nest, and vainly attempting to fly while its wings have only pinfeathers” (G. Stanley). “She smoked, drank, danced, and voted. She cut her hair, [and] wore make-up…” (Rosenberg). The women in those days had a hard time accepting this new style. The “flapper” was a girl that loved to dance. She needed her clothes to allow her to move freely, so she......

Decade of Revolution

...The 1960s was a decade filled with change. It started out with optimism among America’s youth that was unprecedented in history. Before too long headlines of civil rights, university reform, pacifist movement against the Vietnam War, women’s rights, and sexual liberation were made and the “Camelot” vision was quickly shattered. America’s youth began to revolt against the establishment and the foregone conclusion that they would adopt the lifestyle of their parents. In ten short years societal norms were turned completely around. Never before had change happened so quickly or been driven by the same group. This rapid change is breathtaking, considering most young people are generally naïve and disinterested in events outside their immediate scope. I have therefore decided to investigate what role the media played in the youth revolutions of the 1960s. This paper will identify media’s influence in driving change and analyze relationships between media, specific historical events, and the reaction of America’s youth. This will be achieved by looking at both primary and secondary sources to determine how much influence the media played in manipulating America’s youth via songs, marketing, and select writings. The media industry’s reaction to the social and technological upheavals of the twentieth century was to encapsulate the mantra “youth as fun” and sell it to America’s teens. . It was the social exposure that the media promoted that resulted in the heightening...

...Thailand is performing well in its international trade, as seen from a remarkable increase in exports recorded in 2010 and a healthy outlook for 2011. According to the Director-General of the Department of Export Promotion, Mrs. Nuntawan Sakuntanag, Thai exports in 2010 are likely to expand by 24-25 percent, or 189-190 billion US dollars. For 2011, the Ministry of Commerce has set a target of export growth at 10 percent, or 207.9-209.6 billion dollars in value. The target growth is based on the value of 30 baht per US dollar and a crude oil price of 76-77 dollars per barrel. The Ministry of Commerce will work closely with the private sector in pushing Thai exports this year. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) will receive greater attention in terms of capacity-building, market development, cluster network development, and financial support and risk management. More emphasis will be placed on penetrating foreign markets that have high potential, such as ASEAN, China, India, and Russia. In addition, the Ministry of Commerce will attach great importance to developing and promoting value creation through creativity, innovation, branding, and environmentally friendly production. Although Thai exports in 2011 are expected to increase steadily, there are several key risk factors. For instance, the appreciation of the baht, higher production costs because of higher oil prices, and an increase in interest rates would have an impact on Thailand’s international......

Differences in World Culture Closely Related to Global Business Operation

...Differences in World Culture Closely Related to Global Business Operation 梁宇轩 20130250016 Now the world is increasingly globalized and the world seems to become smaller since the vehicle become more and more advanced. It is very easy for a person to travel and do business all over the world. But the advanced vehicle could not speed up people to know others abroad because of the cultural difference. While doing business in a foreign country, sometimes it is very important for the businessman to realize the cultural of the country. Even nowadays there exist some countries have a institution that its politics are closely connect with its religions such as the Islamic areas. There exist a lot of taboos in Islamic countries and maybe something usual in our normal days is evil in those countries. That means if someone wants to do business in the Islamic areas and he needs to know the country’s religion and cultural otherwise he may lose his money or even break the law. For example, the financial industry is very different in Islamic areas. In the ancient time, Prophet Muhammad observed the usury behavior harmed his people as a witness. And he thought that these behavior will make the society injustice and intensify the contradiction. So he made the regulation that no one will be allowed to get interest from lending money to others. Even in the Quran charging interest is not allowed. There is no doubt that this regulation can not adjust the world’s convention. The......

Discipline and Management: Different Yet Related

...Discipline and Management: Different Yet Related By Jeff Conroy Grand Canyon University EDU:536 August 25, 2013 Discipline and Management: Different Yet Related Discipline and management and behavior and misbehavior are all interrelated and deal with how a teacher organizes and teaches a class. All of these concepts have similarities and differences and all are integral parts of a teacher’s classroom. Misbehavior This is when someone breaks the rules or doesn’t follow directions. In a classroom this can be something like being disrespectful to someone else or not following a teacher’s directions. (Charles, 2014) An example would be: A student talking at the same time as a teacher is explaining something. Behavior This is the way students act or respond to others and themselves. It is usually categorized as either good behavior or bad behavior. (Charles, 2014) An example of bad behavior might be a student stealing something from another student and an example of good behavior might be a student listening to instructions from their teacher. Discipline Discipline is the way a teacher might correct student misbehavior. In the past this was done through coercion and punishment, while today it is done through positive influence and persuasion. (Charles, 2014) An example of this might be the teacher reminding his/her students of the rules when one of the students is currently breaking a rule. Management ......

Yet every day in classrooms across the world educator's are faced with these challenges because like it or not kids are going to act up in class. Knowing these daily challenges will cause almost every educator to think about and consider how they will carry out both classroom management and discipline with their students. While these two items are similar, they certainly are not the same, or are they? Moreover, why do we need them in our classrooms? Classroom Management and Discipline, although they may seem similar and do go hand in hand in the classroom, most might agree they are not the same. Classroom Management is typically a teachers plan to obtain and keep order in their classroom while engaging their students in active learning. Knowing this information many if not all teachers will take the necessary steps to not only creating a good classroom management plan but they will try and communicate this plan with their students so that the students know what is expected of them while they are in school. Teachers realize these plans are not only necessary but their best attempt to detour and possibly even prevent the......

In order for us to fully understand the importance of both, we must explore what they signify as well as what behavior and misbehavior mean. We will discover their meanings, their likenesses, and how they are distinct. We will also explore how they correlate to one another. An effective teacher creates and maintains orderliness in their classroom. By using proactive procedures of communication, behaviors can often be changed. Discipline means to teach self-control.

...Victor Ly SS English Mrs. Beauchamp Wednesday, July 10, 2013 The 90s Decade Did you know that Toy Story was the first movie to be created by computers during the 90s? The 90s was a great time period of change not only for the United States, but also for the whole world. This time period did include ups and downs, though. Many problems had erupted and many obstacles were ran into. This was a time period where these problems and obstacles had to be overcome. So, what was done? The 90s is an important decade in history because many of those obstacles have been tamed and controlled. Although, there were many problems, George Herbert Walker Bush, The Persian Gulf War, and the World Wide Web changed the fate of this world. The 90s brought former president of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush. George H. W. Bush was born on June 12, 1924 in Milton, Massachusetts. He grew up in New York City. During World War ll, Bush became the youngest navy flying pilot. In 1945, he married Barbara Pierce and attended Yale. There, he majored in economics, was captain of the baseball team, and graduated with Phi Beta Kappa Honors in 1948. During his presidency, Bush worked very much in the White House for eight years. “Bush traveled more than a million and a half kilometers and visited some 75 nations as a special emissary for the president…” (Grolier 1) Bush was then elected for president of the United States in 1988.

The Next Decade

...THE NEXT DECADE The Next Decade is a book written by George Friedman, and emphasizes The United States’ relationships with other nations. The book addresses some technological and economic problems and well as explaining empires and republics on the rise during the following decade. The Next Decade is a comprehensive and remarkable analysis that encompasses the issues and benefits for being a super power. The United States has unintentionally become a global empire, and the role of the United States President is to serve as the world’s most important political diplomat. It is noted that the President must be able to at least promote the quintessential virtues, ethics, and tradition of the one of the greatest countries in the world. The greatest battle of the decade is predicted to be how the United States will react to leadership that will be interested in the economic dealings rather than serving the American people. Friedman made a bold and unshakable declaration: America is an imperial empire. He gives the overview of what America will be facing in the upcoming years which includes balance of power. Also America could lose itself as a Republic. The book starts with a summarized historical background and explains current political situations that are happening globally. It then analyzes each geographical region and assessment plans. The Next Decade is a comprehensive and remarkable analysis that encompasses the issues and benefits for being a super power.

Ibm Decade of Transformation

...cade of 9-805-130 REV: JULY 8, 2009 LYNDA M. APPLEGATE ROBERT AUSTIN ELIZABETH COLLINS IBM's Decade of Transformation: Turnaround to Growth This is my last annual letter to you. By the time you read this, Sam Palmisano will be our new chief executive officer, the eighth in IBM’s history. He will be responsible for shaping our strategic direction as well as leading our operations. . . . I want to use this occasion to offer my perspective on what lies ahead for our industry. To many observers today, its future is unclear, following perhaps the worst year in its history. A lot of people chalk that up to the recession and the “dot-com bubble.” They seem to believe that when the economies of the world recover, life in the information technology industry will get back to normal. In my view, nothing could be further from the truth. Lou Gerstner, IBM Annual Report, 2001 In 1990, IBM was the second-most-profitable company in the world, with net income of $6 billion on revenues of $69 billion, and it was completing a transformation designed to position it for success in the next decade. For the world leader in an industry that expected to keep growing spectacularly, the future looked promising. But all was not well within IBM, and its senior executives realized it. “In 1990, we were feeling pretty good because things seemed to be getting better,” one executive remarked. “But we weren’t feeling great because we knew there were deep structural problems.” Those......

...begin with definitions of the meaning of the terms "machine" and "think." The definitions might be framed so as to reflect so far as possible the normal use of the words, but this attitude is dangerous, If the meaning of the words "machine" and "think" are to be found by examining how they are commonly used it is difficult to escape the conclusion that the meaning and the answer to the question, "Can machines think?" is to be sought in a statistical survey such as a Gallup poll. But this is absurd. Instead of attempting such a definition I shall replace the question by another, which is closely related to it and is expressed in relatively unambiguous words. The new form of the problem can be described in terms of a game which we call the 'imitation game." It is played with three people, a man (A), a woman (B), and an interrogator (C) who may be of either sex. The interrogator stays in a room apart front the other two. The object of the game for the interrogator is to determine which of the other two is the man and which is the woman. He knows them by labels X and Y, and at the end of the game he says either "X is A and Y is B" or "X is B and Y is A." The interrogator is allowed to put questions to A and B thus: C: Will X please tell me the length of his or her hair? Now suppose X is actually A, then A must answer. It is A's object in the game to try and cause C to make the wrong identification. His answer might therefore be: "My hair is shingled, and the longest strands......
