How To Stop Bullying
Bullying is a huge issue in schools all around the world. “Treat others the way you want to be treated.” That’s the Golden Rule and it should be followed in every aspect of your life. If someone was in a position to stop you from being bullied and did nothing, how would you feel? If you find that unacceptable, you must do everything you can to stop others from hurting people.
Are you even remotely aware of how much pain these victims feel every day? They go to school knowing they’re going to be hurt and they see no way out. This is because people like you and many others stand by and let it happen without contemplating how much pain this is causing people. Ask yourself this: How would you feel if you were in the victim’s position and could see no end to your pain?
When the victims see no way out, they may choose to tragically end their life, leaving more hurt behind for those who were unable to stop it. The death of a young person is always a waste of life, so how many more lives must be wasted before something is done?If you condone bullying in any way, shape or form, you are taking part in it. Bullying is everyone’s responsibility and the option of doing nothing is unacceptable in civilized society. Some people may consider mocking someone funny, even though it is anything but funny to the victim. Small jabs taken every day can add up to a lot of pain and suffering. While it may seem innocent to the person taking the shots, the cumulative effect of these daily jabs could be devastating. In addition to that, as the pain increases, each jab cuts a little deeper.

Bullying can happen in school, so it is the responsibility of students to protect their classmates and to show everyone the dignity and respect they would like to be treated with. The first line of defense in bullying is in student’s own behavior. But when that…...

How to Stop Customers Fixating on Price

...How to stop customers from fixating on price Nowadays customers have many options and the most important feature of the product is price. On one hand price increases the intensity of competition in markets, but on the other hand it often damages brand equity and erodes profit margins. Moreover, low price develops low expectations, because customers see price as sign of quality. So, to set a price is very meaningful decision. There are some strategies, which will help you to price products. There are several strategies that can stop consumers from fixating prices. First strategy is to use price structure to clarify your advantage. This means that company should focus on value your product or service deliver than to constant price cutting. Tire’s company called “Goodyear” made a good initiative on this step. Firstly, consumers bought only cheapest tires and were unwilling to pay some extra for the innovation that extends tire’s life. Therefore, “Goodyear” solved this problem by adjusting prices to expected lifetime of a tire rather their engineering complexity. By doing so, company highlighted the advantage of their innovations and taught consumer a new to compare offerings. Second strategy is willfully overpricing products to stimulate curiosity. This basically means that if a company is overpricing some products it can lead consumer to think why this products has higher price than a similar one, what features affect the price. This strategy is used by “Apple” company, which...

Cyber-Bulling in School Children

...En 102 Prof. Nuredinoski 4/26/13 Cyber-Bulling In School Children According to Oxford dictionary, Cyber- bulling is the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm and attack other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner. With the fast emerging of the new internet technology, we all have experienced new things that have come through this technology. Particularly, it has become more common among young people. Although the innovation of the new technology has brought a significant change in our life style, it also caused for the rise of cyber- bulling. We all have passed through the traditional bulling type. However, this kind of bulling is not as serious as cyber- bulling. Cyber -bulling is a current burning issue that has to be solved. Currently, school children are victimized the most through cyber-bulling. Adams, Caralee, an instructor, says “…Approximately 20 percent of students admitted having been cyber bullied” (Para. 5). According to Caralee, all this happens on school children. Lane, Darcy argues “Schools should talk to students about the harms associated with using technology as a social weapon against their peers” (15). According to Darcy, School teachers have to work together with parents to prevent children from cyber- bulling. On the other hand, some other scholars believe that parents have the responsibility to prevent their kids from cyber-bulling harassment. Adams Caralee says, “Just as parents wouldn't let their kids run around an...

How Satan Stops Prayers

...How satan Stops Our Prayers. COMBAT IN THE HEAVENLY REALM by John Mulinde,  Obsteig (Austria) Nov.  2000 I want to share with you from a testimony of someone who was saved, someone who had been serving the devil.  And when that man gave his testimony, it so challenged me, I did not want to believe it.  I had to go ten days before the Lord in fasting, asking Him, "Lord, is this true?" And it was at that time the Lord began to teach me what happens in the spiritual realm when we pray.  This man was born after his parents dedicated themselves to lucifer.  When he was still in the womb, they made so many rituals dedicating him to serve lucifer.  When he was four years old, he began to exercise his spiritual power.  And his parents began fearing him.  When he was six years, his father surrendered him to the witches to go and be trained.  And by ten years, he was doing great things in the kingdom of the devil.  He was feared by the normal witches.  He was still a young boy, but he was so terrible in the things he did.  He grew up to be a young man in his twenties with so much bloodshed on his hands.  Killed at will.  He had the ability to go out of his body through transcendental meditation.  And he could levitate.  Sometimes his body would lift off the ground and stay in the air.  And sometimes he could go into a trance, and come out of his body; his body would remain behind, and he would go out into the world, this is called......

...merely copies the actions of others without a lower cost structure or point of differentiation. A retailer should visit retailers of all sizes in its trading area to learn what merchandise and services the competitors are offering and what they are not, which offerings receive aggressive pricing emphasis, and which promotional tactics are successfully used by competitors. For example, many people believe that the local retailers cannot compete with the large discounters. The small appliance store owner would benefit by understanding that these chains usually carry only a limited selection within a product category and provide little personalized and specialized service. Thus, buy knowing which televisions the discounter is carrying, and how they are priced, the small retailer can match the price on similar units, offer better services, and stock a more complete range of units. Other chins have created a niche that has worked well against these discounters. Consider, for example, the tactic used by the dollar stores (Dollar General, Family Dollar, and Dollar Tree). These chains successfully operate small stores within the shadow of the large discounters by providing convenience, and low prices on a low prices on a limited product selection. By enabling their customers to get in and out quickly, these stores are able to compete with the larger chains. Still, the niche served by these dollar stores is risky since they tend to target households earning $25,000 a year or less, a......

Cyber Bulling

...proxy is an attack using others to help, either with or without the accomplice’s knowledge. When cyberbullying by proxy gets adults involved in the harassment, it becomes much more dangerous. When they want someone else to their dirty work quickly, they will post information about, or pose as, their victim in hate chat rooms or on discussion boards. Cyberbullies have even been known to post this information in child molesters’ chat rooms and on discussion boards, promoting their victim for sex. Then all they have to do is wait for the members of the hate groups or child molesters groups to strike or interact with their victim online and sometimes offline. The trouble is, the technology of bullying has advanced much faster than efforts to stop it ever could. If you have a cell phone, you can post to your entire school that a girl is a slut or a boy is a fag--and you can attach an unflattering photo or video of them to try to prove it. At least bullies of previous decades had to hold you down before they could spit in your face. What can be done if someone is being cyberbullied? There are several proven strategies to handle cyberbullying. Schools need to build programs from within to work with both the victims and the bullies. Schools should invest in a resource officer, whose duty is to patrol the halls and connect with the kids. Schools with SRO’s have a proven lower rate of violence than schools without them. The parent’s strategy is to show no fear and not to......

No Tolerance and No Bulling Policies

...No Tolerance and No Bulling Policies: Why They Do Not Work "Zero Tolerance Policies" were first instated into schools, to enforce suspension and expulsion, in response to students; violating; weapons, drugs and violent act policies that were already in place. Shortly after, schools began to instate “No Bulling Policies” partly to a high suicide rate among teenagers due to bulling. The consequences for violating these policies can now go beyond expulsion, and have legal implications. In theory these policies are a great idea. Unfortunately, these policies are rarely implemented and carried out correctly, causing them to not just be ineffective; but causing them to have adverse effects. We have tried these policies in our schools , it has been proven that they have done more harm than good; it is now time to remove these policies from our schools. The “school to prison pipeline," is a recent national trend where children are pushed out of public schools, and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Many of these children have learning disabilities, histories of poverty, and histories of abuse and neglect. There students would benefit from additional educational and counseling services. Instead, they are isolated, punished and pushed out. Many "Zero-tolerance" policies criminalize minor infractions of school rules. Cops in schools are criminalizing behavior that should be handled inside the school. Students of color are especially vulnerable to push-out trends and......

How to Stop Customers Form Fixating on Prive

...How to stop customers from fixating on price This article aims t tackle the problem that nowadays many customers are paying the most attention to the price when they purchase products or services. The article addresses the problem that most customers prefer the products that have the lowest price even though the value of the product is less compared to other products with higher price. This has caused products or services with higher innovation or value to be left uncompetitive. As a result the author proposed three main ways to price products or services that can mitigate the problems stated above. First is to use price structure to make it call attention to the value of the product or services. In order to do this, companies must revise its pricing structure or the basis that companies price various offerings. The key to do this is to vary price according to what’s most distinctive about the offering rather than makeup of the product or service itself. This will allowed the products get out of head-to-head price competition and allow it to compete on the personal relevance to customers of the value it provides. This strategy has been used by Goodyear company as the company had problem that customers were unwilling to pay a premium for the innovations the company introduced to extend tread life. It solved the problem by pricing its various models on the basis of how many miles they could be expected to last rather than their engineering complexity. This highlighted...

...concern of mine. In my opinion, bullying today is at an all-time high at a level much greater than when I was growing up, do not get me wrong there was plenty of bullying back then, regretfully I was a culprit of it myself, more emotional than physical but still not right. Back then it was more pushing and shoving and making kids feel like they were worthless, still not right. Today, there is a lot more to it, guns and knives and death threats. Emotionally, bullies today push the weaker kids to the point of depression or even suicide. Back twenty or thirty years ago, I do not recall bullying be this harsh or maybe I was too naive to observe it in that way. My hope in doing research on this I can try and understand why and where it all began and how to maybe in some small way try to make amends for the stupid things I did back when I was an adolescent. As for what I know about bullying, is all common knowledge. I do not know facts or figures on what so ever. I have an idea or an opinion on bullying but unfortunately it is based on what I did as an adolescent or a stupid teenager, as I stated earlier if in any way I can give back or reach out to any victim of bullying is my goal of doing this research for this project. Bullying is not a new problem, more people are now aware of this social problem, and the impact it has on children today. In the past, bullying was seen as harmless, a normal, unavoidable part of growing up. The actual bullying was often brushed off for......

How to Stop Being a Slut

...POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION (PCR) PCR stands for the Polymerase Chain Reaction and was developed in 1987 by Kary Mullis (which won him a Nobel Prize) and associates. With this technique it is possible to make virtually unlimited copies of a single DNA molecule even though it is initially present in a mixture containing many different DNA molecules. It is used to amplify a specific DNA (target) sequence lying between known positions (flanks) on a double-stranded (ds) DNA molecule. The polymerase chain reaction can be used to amplify both double and single stranded DNA. In order to perform PCR, one must know at least a portion of the sequence of the target DNA molecule that has to be copied. Generally, PCR amplifies small DNA targets 100-1000 base pairs (bp) long. It is technically difficult to amplify targets >5000 bp long. A pair of single stranded oligonucleotide primers, which have DNA sequences complementary to the flanking regions of the target sequence, must be synthesized. The primers are complementary to either end of the target sequence but lie on opposite strands. The primers are usually 20-30 nucleotides long and bind to complementary flanking region at 3' end. Requirements: Thermal cycler (thermocycler) PCR amplification mix typically containing: Sample dsDNA with a target sequence Thermostable DNA polymerase Two oligonucleotide primers Deoxynucleotide triphosphates (dNTPs) Reaction buffer containing magnesium ions and other components Procedure: 1. The DNA......

How to Stop Being Conscious

...How to Stop Feeling Self Conscious Why do you feel self-conscious? Is it the way you look or the way you think you look? Who is judging you and why do you care about their opinions? This article will provide some strategies to help you decrease feelings of self consciousness that interfere with everyday life. Steps: * Identify what you're terribly conscious about. A certain aspect of your appearance? The twitch in your eye? Your accent? Your Disability? Your intellectual abilities? Make a list of these things and next to each item, write something you can do to improve it. * Figure out who you're trying to please and why. What kind of expectations are making you so self conscious? Is everyone around you picture perfect, or are you comparing yourself to airbrushed models in magazines? Have you convinced yourself that no one else has twitches, or flaws, or trips? Stop for a second and turn that self-criticism outwards. No one is perfect, and you've never noticed their little quirks before, so why would they pay so much attention to yours? Just feel like there's no need to worry and always picture yourself like you know you look and feel good in front of others, but don't think about it too much because it will already be embedded. * Redirect your attention. When you start to feel self conscious, locate a target - it doesn't matter what it is, it may be the bug crawling across the floor - and concentrate on it. What color is it? How many legs? Anything......

For example if a kid consistently cleans their room it wouldn’t get that dirty and it would be easy to clean, but if...

Rhino- How to Stop Poaching

...How would you reduce poaching if a rhino’s horn could be cut and re-grown in 6 years? The horn is cut off while the rhino is chemically immobilized (anaesthetized). The removal of the horn is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure, similar to cutting one’s hair or nails and should not cause the rhino any pain or injury. Once the antagonist is administered, the rhino can be up and back on its feet within a few minutes.   The risks associated with dehorning include those associated with anesthesia, cutting the horn off too close to growth point and, drugging and handling a very large animal and effects on behaviour.   There are always risks associated with anesthesia. Etorphine\M99, the drug used for immobilizing rhino is procedure is a strictly controlled, high schedule potent opioid. Newer drug combinations and experience have reduced the risks. The current calculated mortality risk for free ranging rhino to < 1%. This procedure should only be carried out by a ‘rhino experienced’ wildlife vet and team using the correct protocols and taking the relevant precautions, should perform the dehorning. Due to the continual growth of the horn, dehorning may need to be repeated every 18 – 24 months. Repeated exposure to anaesthesia may contribute to short and long-term health problem; and increases the mortality risk to between 1-2 %. Contradictory opinions were expressed at the workshop. A specialist veterinary aneasthetist confirmed that risks increase with frequency of......

How to Stop Excessive Shopping

...The bad habit I choose to break could be excessive shopping for no reason. There are many steps to do it. First, define the specific concrete terms. For example, if you want to stop the excessive shopping from an individual for no reason, instead of asking the individual to stop shopping, we can ask him or her to reduce the time and money: from 25 hrs and $1000 a week to 5 hrs and $200 a week. The second step should be collecting the data about the behavior of the individual. So that it will be easier by knowing the starting line, we can set up the finish line. Designing the self control program could be the third step. Reduce the shopaholic tendency by half and then reduce it further, because it will be shocking for the person’s system reducing it suddenly which may do more harm than good. Identify two other interesting things the individual like other than shopping. For example, dining or going to movies. Encourage the individual by reinforcing for dining or moving; punish them for not doing that. Thirdly, plan how to resist the temptations of shopping. If punishments are not working, have the positive talk to him and explain the rewards he may get if he performs well. Explain to him that the short term goals are chatting with friends, using internet, dining outside, or going to movies and the long term goals could be minimizing the shopping time and reducing the amount of money spent. The fourth step is making the commitment to change. In this step, display the......

...agree or disagree with certain statements that describe feelings about themselves. The participants are asked to rate themselves on certain characteristics on a scale from 1 to 4, with 1 being strongly agree, 2 being agree, 3 being disagree, and 4 being strongly disagree. The Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale has an internal consistency of .88 (Robins, Hendin, & Trzesniewski, 2001). Perceived stress. The Perceived Stress Scale (PSS; Cohen, 1983) is a four question survey which asks participants to indicate how often they have felt a certain way over the past month using a 5 point scale (0 = never, 1 = almost never, 2 =sometimes, 3 = fairly often, 4 = very often). The internal reliability is .72 (Cohen, Kamarck, & Mermelstein, 1983). Loneliness. The UCLA Loneliness Scale (ULS; Russell, 1996) is a 20 item questionnaire which instructs participants to rate how often they have felt the way described in each item (e.g. How often do you feel unhappy doing so many things alone? How often do you feel you have nobody to talk to?). The participants responded using a scale of 1 to 4, with endpoints of “I never feel this way” and "I often feel this way." The internal consistency ranges from .89 to .94. Bullying experiences. The Experiences with Past Bullying Questionnaire (EBQ; Newman, Holden, & Delville, 2005) is a 21 item questionnaire that assesses the timing and frequency of experiences with bullying. It also assesses the types of bullying experienced (physical, verbal, or......

Child Abuse and Bulling

...Denay Stockstill English 0900 20 Fall 2011 Child Abuse And Bulling All abuse is violent, whether it’s physical, emotional, verbal, or psychological. I feel child abuse turns into the child becoming a bully, and bullying to someone committing suicide. The abuser is usually an individual who has high anxiety and has not learned to deal with it like others. Most people would disagree or argue that child abusers can be AND are bullies. I think you are what you see. These kids grow up in abusive homes with no one to turn to for guidance. Tim Field, a prominent British anti-bullying activist, states, "Being bullied by a serial bully is equivalent to being stalked or being battered by a partner or being abused as a child and should be accorded the same gravity." He saying child abuse and bullying have the same consequences as someone getting beat to death. Being abused as a child can result in negative behavior in the future. You either turn into a bully or look at the negative and turn it to a positive. Look at your situation and help someone else from going through what you have. Field founded the UK National Workplace Bullying Advice Line and also wrote and published a book, Bully In Sight based on his own experiences. I think when a child is bullied they were a victim of a violent parent, a close family member, or a friend. Whatever the case may have been, research study done by Melissa Holt, showed that out of 700 fifth grade students 14% were bullies, 12% were victims, 8%......
