Working hard and be consistent is my belief. I came to the United States in 2003 to acquire my college education. It has been a long journey since I arrived to this country. It is on my recollection the day I left Ecuador, my family and my friends looking for new challenge that I really want to succeed. At the beginning of this journey everything looks so difficult and there were a lot of barriers on the road. I recognized it that if I want to succeed in this country I need to learn how to speak and write in English to be able to effectively communicate with others in this country. Moreover, I need to improve my listening skills to have a better understanding of the English speakers.
In my college Education I was able to complete my 2-year college degree and I got my BA in Marketing by following my belief. Working hard and be consistent took me to the next level in college Education.
In my professional career I always follow the identical belief. I remembered my first interview with my first boss. He asked me about my strengths and weaknesses in the interview. I remembered I was so nervous because it was my first job interview in this country. Moreover, I really need to get this job to start getting job experience for the near future. I answered that my strengths are that I work really hard and I am extremely consistent in any task that I am in charge. It was a really good interview and I left thinking that I will get this job. In effect, I got this position because I gained my boss trust that day. First day at my new job I need to start showing people that what I said on the interview was correct. I started working hard every day and I started be consistent especially with any recommendation my boss shared to me. It took me couple years until finally I got promoted to a better position in this company. In this new position, I experienced a lot of…...

...INTRODUCTION Many students of HRM in Taguig City University work part-time Employment during school could improve grades if working promotes aspects that correspond with academic success, such as industriousness or time management skills, or instead reduce grades by reducing time and energy available for school work. Otherwise, working might be associated with academic performance, yet not directly influence it, if unobserved student differences influence both labor supply and grades. Unmotivated students might neither work for pay nor receive good grades because they put little effort into the labor market or school. In contrast, HRM students uninterested in academics might work long hours that would otherwise have been devoted to leisure. Students might misjudge the link between college achievement and future earnings when making labor supply decisions. If so, obtaining a consistent estimate of how such decisions affect academic performance is prospectively important for policy consideration. Some of HRM students in Taguig City University Students are more likely to work than they are to live on campus, to study full time, to attend a four-year college or university, or to apply for or receive financial aid. Students work regardless of the type of institution they attend, their age or family responsibilities, or even their family income or educational and living expenses. Most HRM students at Taguig City University face many challenges in their already busy everyday lives...

Hard Times

...The industrial revolution was a time of great technological changes. It revolutionised everything, from the way people lived to where they worked, but what society often overlooked was how ordinary people went through their day to day lives. In the book ‘Hard Times’, Charles Dickens has produced some exceptional characters to represent the complexity of each social class. From the arrogance of aristocracy to the struggle of the common workers, and the way in which they cope with the many hardships they will endure. Charles Dickens was able to personify the different social classes. The real reason why Charles Dickens wrote Hard Times was because he was low on funds, this was due to his sales being low on his periodical magazine “Household words”. He hoped by writing this novel in instalments would bale him out by increasing his profits. However, Dickends wished to satirize radical utilitarians who dickens thought to be ‘those who see figures and averages, and nothing else’. He also wished to campaign for reform of working conditions. In as early as 1839, dickens visted factories in Manchester and was appalled by the conditions workers had to work in. Furthermore, Charles Dickens gives us a close up look into what appears to be the ivory tower of the bourgeoisie of his day, yet these middle-class characters are viewed from a singular perspective, the perspective of those at the bottom of the social and economic system. Though Dickens characters tend to be well developed......

...According to "Project Management" (2004), Project Management is “a methodical approach to planning and guiding project processes from start to finish.” By following an established project management life-cycle businesses can ensure the established goals and objectives of the organization are realized in a consistent and uniform manner within a defined timeframe and within budget. A brief definition of a project with key characteristics is presented within this paper. Each phase of the project life-cycle, including the definition phase, planning phase, implementation phase, and closure phase are also identified and discussed. In addition, key reasons to underline why it is important for businesses to apply project management techniques to accomplish tasks required to achieve the established goals and objectives are provided. A project is set of related tasks executed to achieve a set of objectives and goals within an established timeline and an approved budget. Projects are temporary and can be short-term (a few days, few weeks, or a few months) or long-term (multiple months or years). Each project is unique in scope, schedule, and budget. Projects consist of a Definition Phase, a Planning Phase, an Implementation Phase, and a Closure Phase ("Project Management Knowhow", 2012). Two key characteristics of a project are projects are temporary with a defined timeline and projects produce unique deliverables, such as products, services, and process improvements ("What Is A......

... Diligence is steadfast application, assiduousness and industry; the virtue of hard work. It is one of the seven heavenly virtues. Diligent behaviour is indicative of a work ethic; a belief that work is good in itself. Diligence in students Bernard et al. Other factors which encourage diligence in students include motivation, discipline, concentration, responsibility and devotedness. Diligence in Buddhism The last words of the Buddha was "Strive on with diligence". Diligence is an integral part of all Buddhist teaching, and is considered the fourth of the pāramitā. In Mahayana tradition diligence is the third pāramitā and the first which is said to lead to liberation. The practice of diligence will bring an increase of qualities. Diligence in Christianity Diligence, in Christianity, is the effort to do one's part, while keeping faith and reliance in God. In other words, diligence and faith are two sides of a mystery. One doesn’t know how, despite one's effort, it all works out. But diligence when combined with faith assures spiritual success. Diligence as one of seven virtues describes thoroughness, completeness and persistence of an action, particularly in matters of faith. Diligence in Hinduism According to Brian Hatcher, the precepts of Hinduism require a human being to discover and live a dharmic life. To live a dharmic life, one must live with right intention with diligence, and with concern for well being of others. The Hindus celebrate Diwali, a......

Characteristics of a Consistent System of Equations

...Characteristics of a Consistent System of Equations (determined): * For a given system, there exists one solution set for the different variables in the system or infinitely many sets of solution, so as long as we can find a solution for the system of equations, we refer to that system as being consistent. * For a two variable system of equations to be consistent the lines formed by the equations have to meet at some point or they have to be parallel. * For a three variable system of equations to be consistent, the equations formed by the equations must meet two conditions: 1. All three planes have to parallel 2. Any two of the planes have to be parallel and the third must meet one of the planes at some point and the other at another point. For example; solve the system of equations below: Using matrix method: In the last row of the above augmented matrix, we have ended up with all zeros on both sides of the equations. This means that two of the planes formed by the equations in the system of equations are parallel, and thus the system of equations is said to have an infinite set of solutions. We solve for any of the set by assigning one variable in the remaining two equations and then solving for the other two. For example, if we take y =3 Then: Then using the first row equation, we solve for x Characteristics of an Inconsistent System of Equations (underdetermined and overdetermined): * For a given set of variables, there is no set......

Please Stop Working so Hard

...“ “Please Stop Working So Hard!” Matt Platt is a recent university graduate, with little work experience and no previous management experience. Evan Saunders is a hard working employee who consistently goes above and beyond his job description, without being asked or compensated for it. While Matt does not want to punish Evan for being a good worker, it is causing some tension and morale issues among the shift employees. The company has developed a fragile and stressful work atmosphere causing the workers to complain.The employees have distrust, low morale and valid concerns about job safety; they are protesting that there is unequal treatment given to Saunders as they see him not following union mandated break times. Evan Saunders over enthusiastic work ethic has sparked sitewide layoffs; management is now beginning to expect the same dedication out of the other staff. They figure it takes fewer employees to do the same amount of work. The previous round of layoffs created a very tense and stressful environment among the employees. The real problem is an inefficient and misdirected leadership; Matt’s reliance on Saunders for guidance on day-to-day operations has caused an uneven distribution of objectivity.Matt is not taking control or dealing with the difficulties; he appears to be favouring Saunders above the other team members. Saunders also demonstrates inefficient leadership by missing mandatory meetings and by, not listening to his line operators. Matt must......

Consistent Hashing

...1. Consistent Hashing Consider the following two scenarios. Describe in each case why consistent hashing is likely to perform better than hashing. Scenario 1: There is a fixed set of cache servers implementing consistent hashing and a population of clients who have incomplete views of the system i.e. each client only knows about a fraction of the servers Scenario 2: There is a set of cache servers that change i.e. nodes come and go. Answer 1: Hashing: Hashing is an easy to implement and quick to evaluate algorithm. Let us consider that the fixed set of cache servers are ‘n’, that is the number of nodes. Let us number the computers 0, 1, 2,…,n-1. According to the hashing algorithm, the key value pair (k, v) will be stored on the cache ‘hash(k) mod n’ where hash() is any function that converts the arbitrary string k to a non-negative integer. Keys are distributed evenly in a cluster for any reasonable number of keys, if the hash function being used in hash(k) mod n is a good hash function. Consistent Hashing: Consistent hashing is a cleverer algorithm compared to hashing. Here, the output range of the hash function is treated as a ring or fixed circular space. The largest hash value wraps around to the smallest hash value to form the ring. Each node in the system is assigned a random value which represents its ‘position’ on the ring. Each data item identified by a key k is assigned to a node by hashing data item’s key to yield a position on the ring. We walk clockwise...

Hard Lives

...Amber Sprouse Watts Eng. 101 2/13/2015 Hard Lives Are Worth all the Trouble Hard lives can not be an excuse to missing assignments, being late, or overwhelming oneself. In a way it is almost an insult to an instructor, saying that time is not well spent doing something for them. That being said, instructors should never lower their standards due to a student's busy life; students also shouldn’t think of time as something they can abuse simply because they are young and in college. Community college students come to community college for a variety of reasons, regardless of why they choose to do so, they are always welcome. As long as students believe they can achieve their goals than anything is possible. We all have hard lives, some more difficult and drawn out than others. And however for many decades people have managed to overcome busy schedules and make it work, all instructors want what's best for their students and although they might seem a bit insane, believe it or not all the trouble is worth it in the end. All the work and all the trouble of scheduling may seem unimportant and a new student might not understand the big deal, however it can change the outlook one might have on their life. Just taking ten minuets week to evaluate the time that we all have available can make a drastic difference in how the task at hand are accomplished. Putting a schedule down on paper gives the perfect perspective on how the time that’s available is used. The author of The Myth...

Standardization of Products and Consistent Service

...Submitted By: Sarabmeet sandhu Student ID: 110165356 Assessment: 1 ------------------------------------------------- 3: Critically analyse the tensions and conflicts in international hospitality firms' standardisation of products and provision of consistent service quality. Hospitality firms are intensely competitive and firms tries to maintain their centre of interest on customers wants and needs to achieve their satisfaction and stand still on customer’s expectations. According to a research features of service or product are not important than the quality of service that plays a significant role for achieving higher customer satisfaction and customer loyalty (Donnelly et. al, 2006). When a customer decides to go for a lunch or dinner in a 5star hotel or a couple plans to travel and book a hotel room all they expect is quality service. There’s a level of quality in service which goes up with the grade of hotels and the expectations of customers are also attached with these standards. This image of providing low, medium and high level quality service as per customers is hospitality. There are some benchmarks for everything in hospitality industry and those are known as standardisation of products and with that comes consistent service. Market research has proved that high quality of service leads to loyal customers, attracts new customers to the service provider, creates positive mouth publicity, increased employee job satisfaction, employee dedication, increased......

Working Hard

...If working harder than the people around you, will actually get you a better life than they get, many ambitious people will work harder. They are not stupid, however. If working harder than the people around you will not get you ahead of those who don't put forth that extra effort, you would be stupid to do it. The reason that this country is a great country is that there is the commonly held belief that hard work will be rewarded. It is the light that drives this country. The rich will remain rich but will not invest as they use to. Innovation will hinder for large corporations will go elsewhere to conduct their business. America is already the second most expensive place to do business. I think America is still considered by most to be a capitalist country. We have certainly headed down the road to socialism in the past decades. In a true lassiez faire capitalist society, there are no provisions for the weak or the elderly. There do need to be some social programs, such as welfare, food stamps, and basic services.... that's part of being a civilized society. Even access to basic health care needs to be protected by government, but that's as far as that should go and those things should be made the responsibility of local and state politicians, where we can really get to know our representatives and they can really get to know the people and problems of the state. So, you can see that as a shift toward socialism if you like, but I see it as a move toward Statism....

Hard Work

...Aldana, Andres Mr. Savard English 28 July 16, 2014 Hard Work Learning was never an easy thing for me do growing up. It was as if my head was stuck in the clouds, dreaming of anything and everything and when someone said something to me it went in one ear and out the other. I found myself in bad times, by being afraid of my own work Throughout the years I learned what being a student was about by the influence of my peers, I had to start fresh by gained learning experiences that helped me in education. My style of learning is inspired by the coaches and teachers who helped me shape who I am today. Growing up was something that I remember best especially third grade, I think this when I had my first reality check also. I didn’t know what was going on at the time the teacher use of high vocabulary seemed like another language so I never did pay any attention. Soon I found myself in a few parent conferences. Soon after the conferences I was being held back. It was like someone was telling me I was not good enough to be with the same crowd. Walking down the halls of the school I thought that everyone was staring and laughing at me and the once easily spoken child was a speechless shell of a human being. It wasn’t until one of my old teachers noticed that I didn’t talk as much as I used to, she came over and asked me what was wrong so I told her, what happened and how I felt. She then put her hand on my shoulder and then told me something I would never......

There are a few private colleges around. So I might be able to get another class. And giving music lessons. That’s enough for me to get by.” That part was easy, the money, having more than enough to get by. The hard parts were: no balsamic vinegar or kettle potato chips or authentic Italian sauce, craft beer or Napa wines—she lived long enough in northern California to have become a foodie; there being no other single Jew her age for her to talk to in person; the brutal winter cold and her not taking to snow shoeing. In some things she surprised even herself, for not only did Ali perform all her pastoral duties well, as the only clergy for the congregation, she found great pleasure in it—the advice sought after by members more than twice her age, the comfort she gave to those in need, the confessional secrets she kept locked away. She grew accustomed to the deprivations and found the newborn meaning in her life more than......

This notion is captured in terms of the possible repaired versions of the database. A rnethod for computing consistent answers is given and its soundness and completeness (for some classes of constraints and queries) proved. The method is based on an iterative procedure whose termination for several classes of constraints is proved as well. 1 Introduction Integrity constraints capture an important normative aspect of every database application. However, it is often the case that their satisfaction cannot be guaranteed, allowing for the existence of inconsistent database instances. In that case, it is important to know which query answers are consistent with the integrity comtraints and which are not. In this paper, we provide a logical characterization of consistent query answers......
