Turning the Tables in a Positive Situation

Turning The Tables in a positive situation.
First time I heard the idiom “turning the tables in a positive situation” I thought it meant what it said by its words, but it turned out that I’m erroneous; and that is “turning the tables in a positive situation” situation. The English idiom “turning the tables in a positive situation” means to be in a situation where you was in a bad or a positive situation then you use your ability to make it positive, for an example you was a poor guy that you barely get some money to get your food then one day you saw this advertisement “give us a special thing, and take your dream” and then you gave them something you don’t need it, but they found it a variable thing then you get your dream which is to live the life of kings. That is a plain example of “turning the tables in a positive situation”. I had a situation that applies that idiom, but it happened in a football match. It was our school versus another school, and I think that it was a tournament.
One day our Physical Education’s teacher had organized a football match between our school and another school, then he proclaimed it for us. Whenever we have a physical education period we practice for football, but we also have a chance to play other sports such as swimming. We used to stay after school for football training; it was optional to stay, but we wanted and liked to stay after school for football training. We trained so much for a football match that we will have against another school, and I knew this news from our Physical Education’s teacher after he had announced it for us before the match’s time by a month. We trained so much that I was concerned how this match will go. Are we going to win, or lose? Or there will be a thigh? and if there will be a thigh will we have a chance to play a third half or penalties?
This is the day that I had waited for a long time, this is the day that I will rest in the end of it, and a golden colored medal that is hanged on my…

Similarities and Differences in the Way Identity Is Conceptualised by the Psychosoical Theory of Identity and Social Identity Theory

DSE212 Exploring PsychologyDescribe the similarities and differences in the way identity is conceptualised by the psychosocial theory of identity and social identity theory. Identity plays an important role in the life of people whether in a social context or personal.
Identity can be described as a theory about us and the concept of identity has been around since W. James (1890) produced a theory on identity. There has been allot of research into the topic which helps confirm the complexity of identity, stemming from this some theories have been created to try and understand it. This paper will explore two of those theories which help explain some aspects of identity, Psychosocial Theory of Identity and Social Identity Theory (SIT). This will be done by looking at how both theories look at identity, their similarities and differences, and how either of them helps our understanding of identity.
Erikson’s theory stems from personal field research within Native American communities. Also from clinical therapy work within medical centres as well as being influenced by Sigmund Freud. He divided a lifespan into eight stages of psychosocial development (Table 1). Each of its stages being a process where conflicts may arise between personal needs and social needs, internal struggles and challenges where must be negotiated in order to develop. This process can last a lifetime, meaning it changes. He also placed importance on society and how it affects identity, for example through the wars in Europe people thought more about death and different identities where created.
He saw adolescence as an important period for identity development, at this time growth and decision making arise in order for us to develop ego identity; a perception of the self view of the physical and social self. The integration of different views of the self into a core identity the coherent whole that results from this process of integrating perceptions of the…

Facilitating Learning and Assessment in Practice

Within the essay I intend to explore the concepts of learning and assessment in my work place. Gray (2000) states that good mentors influence realistic expectations of the menti to show genuine interest in learning. Upon completion of my studies in Diploma in Nursing, I joined one of the well established private hospital which is located in centre of town in Kuala Lumpur.I was assigned to the High Dependency Unit (HDU) as registered nurse one. There are six beds in the unit whereby patients who are critically ill without ventilator support nursed there. It is an advantage of being a multidisciplinary unit nurse where I able to gain more knowledge and sharpen my clinical skills.
Mentoring and supervisions plays an important role with my job description. As mentoring refers to the concept and practice that facilitates learning in an organization. By teaching a menti through simulation basic skills of basic nursing procedures helps me as a mentor to improve and evaluates my clinical skills and understanding of the job tasks. According to Allen (2002), Process that able to explore the abilities of a newcomer with the concept of mentoring. In HDU,mentoring incorporates support,guidance,socialization,education and career progression, empowerment ,well-being which creates a supportive environment in which nurses shows consistent interest in work. Van Eps et al.(2006) states that mentoring able to evaluate students and improve the value of practice to develop competency level. I have choose Staff Nurse Jas (This is a pseudonym),as my menti.Jas completed her studies in Diploma in Nursing and joined HDU with no working experience. ( See appendix 1 ) .Jas has been in HDU for three months. As a fresh graduate she was unable to cope with the challenging work tasks. Massarweh(1999) states that, equates the clinical settings are important as it impacts the teaching and learning process where both mentor and…

One Day in September: 1972 Olympics

Yesenia Jimenez 4/16/13
Professor Palmer HST 201One Day in September: 1972 Olympics Black September was a terror organization formed by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) to use terror tactics to keep the resistance alive. Black September’s goal was to remove the Jews from Israel—still recognized as Palestine because it was their (Palestinians) land before it was given away. Black September’s kidnapping and murdering of the Israeli Olympic team was a threat to not only Israel, but to their allies and probably the whole world. This was to show that the Arabs have the power to control and manipulate people and/or nations to get what they want.
Having the Olympic games in Munich, Germany seemed wonderful because the city appeared to be safe and a paradise—which was the perfect strategy for the terrorists since the games were watched worldwide. Throughout the time when Black September held the Israelis as hostages to murdering them, the news in Munich made it seem as a show for entertainment than for a broadcast of this tragedy that expresses concern. This was a sign that Germany was in the scheme from the beginning. Germany’s police and government service were just trying to look like heroes when trying to help Israelis when they were taken as hostage. The reason for this would be because they wanted the world’s forgiveness for the Nazis’ destruction in the Second World War. For example, the German police’s plan to rescue the hostages was to have a plane ready for the terrorists. This plane would have five officers/agents disguised as the flight crew and five snipers to shoot down the terrorists before boarding the plane. They were supposed to have a truck to load the hostages for safety. However, minutes before the terrorists’ helicopters arrived, the police disguised as flight crew left.
Israel refused to negotiate with the terrorists in order to save the Israeli Olympic team. The threats Black September were giving Israel was…

Scientists have been trying to create synthetic life, life created in lab, for many years. The first breakthrough in this process happened about thirty years ago when genetic engineers began to genetically modify organisms (Savulescu). These engineers physically move genes across species in order to improve an organism or to cause an organism to function differently. Even though this process sounds as if it happens only in fantasy games, genetically modified organisms are common. For example, genetically modified crops are used every day in the world’s food supply and genetically modified bacteria have been used in medicine, chemical manufacturing, and bio warfare (Pickrell). Slowly, genetic engineering has become a powerful tool in many different fields. Recently, genetic engineering’s potential power increased when Craig Venter, a famous geneticist and entrepreneurs, recreated a living organism out of synthetic chemicals. His success proved to genetic engineers that functioning genomes can be made purely of synthetic chemicals. This power would allow genetic engineers to build new artificial genomes instead of having to modify naturally existing genomes. Genetic engineers now have the chance to broaden their fields’ applications. However, genetic engineering is unpredictable and dangerous, and broadening the application of genetic engineering only furthers the risks. Genetically engineered organisms pose lethal and economic risks to human society.
The availability of genomic information and genetic engineering technology creates a lethal threat to humanity because terrorists can use both the information and technology to recreate deadly pathogens, such as the poliovirus. The naturally occurring poliovirus killed and paralyzed millions of people for many years. In 1988, a worldwide vaccination campaign against the virus nearly exterminated it from the environment, and this solved the poliovirus epidemic. However, in 2002, well intentioned scientists decided to…

Cervical Cancer

Background of study
Cervical cancer is cancer that starts in the cervix.The cervix is the lower part of the uterus and it also called as uterine cervix. The body of the uterus (the upper part) is where a fetus grows.The cervix connects the body of the uterus to the vagina (birth canal). The part of the cervix closest to the body of the uterus is called the endocervix. The part next to the vagina is the exocervix (or ectocervix). The 2 main types of cells covering the cervix are squamous cells (on the exocervix) and glandular cells (on the endocervix). The place these 2 cell types meet is called the transformation zone. Most cervical cancers start in the transformation zone. ).Human papillomaviruses(HPV) are indentified as the major etiology factor in the cervical cancer (American Cancer Society, 2013).
Cervical cancer is a second most common cancer worldwide affecting 1 million women globally in 2005. Not only is it the second most common cancer in women, but also it is the second leading cause of cancer deaths, accounting for over 250,000 deaths in 2005 (Behtash & Mehrdad 2006; WHO 2007).There are 80 % of the 250,000 cervical cancer deaths in 2005 occurred (WHO, 2007).

In September 2008, the human papillomavirus (HPV) immunisation programme was introduced in the UK for schoolgirls aged between 12 and 18 years of age. The vaccine shows high efficacy in preventing infection against HPV types 16 and 18 responsible for 70% of cervical cancer. However, to be most effective, the vaccine needs to be administered before exposure to the viruses and therefore, ideally,before young people become sexually active. (Bray et al., 2005; Peto, Gilham, Fletcher, et al, 2004).Problem Statement
Nowadays the number of cervical cancer patients in the Malaysia increase among females. It is because of the women all around the global doesn’t know the ways to prevent of the cervical cancer. According to Preventive Medicine Journal, they mention that in The Asia-Pacific…

Tom Sawyer

The Maturation of Tom Sawyer   Tom Sawyer, a mischievous, brave, and daring boy that goes through adventures in love, murder, and treasure. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is about a boy maturing from a whimsical troublemaker into a caring young man. In the “conclusion” Mark Twain writes, “It being strictly a history of a boy, it must stop here; the story could not go much farther without becoming a history of a man” Tom is now maturing throughout a span of adventures in love, treasure, and everyday life that make him more of an adult, then a boy.       Tom’s acts in love are childish and immature. At first, Tom’s love for Becky Thatcher is just a crush. He tells Becky about his “marriage” to Amy and it starts a fight. After that, they both play a game of “hard to get”. After this, Tom is too proud to apologize. Also, Tom makes good decisions. First, when Becky accidentally rips Mr. Dobbins’ book a, Tom takes the blame, and this ends their feud. Another mature event takes place in McDougal’s cave. When Tom and Becky are in the cave, they become lost. Then Tom takes responsibility for himself and Becky’s life. These events are part of becoming a young man.       At the beginning of the treasure hunt, it was fun, now it takes maturity. One mature act is when Tom and Huck stay close with Injun Joe to catch him. Also Huck is maturing when he decides that he must go for help because he over heard Injun Joe’s plans for Window Douglas.  On the immature side, when Tom and Huck realize that Injun Joe, the murderer, has the treasure, they aren’t mature enough to get adult help. They feel that they’re strong enough to handle it. The treasure hunt is a controversial adventure that Tom endures.         Tom can now start to show his maturity everywhere, including at home. In the beginning, Tom is running from Aunt Polly’s punishments, hurries through chores, and plays hooky from school. When he convinces kids to do his job of…

Information for All First-Level Managers

The purpose of this memo is to inform all first-level managers at InterClean to recognize the merger and acknowledge the changes after the merger with EnviroTech. As everyone knows, the announcement was made earlier this week by David Spencer stating that InterClean, Inc. has officially acquired EnviroTech, one of our major domestic competitors in the corporate market. Although this merge is a very exciting transformation for our company, you will find many changes throughout the organization in which we will need to adapt to, especially as a manager in our sales team. As a result, I would like to take a moment to reflect on the importance of the type of behavior that successful managers demonstrate, illustrate the types of management actions that are in line with employment laws, and lastly explain some practices for working within a diverse environment.
As first-level managers, his or her behavior can critically impact the productivity of the workers due to the close interactions that are encountered. Fairness and attitude are highly important when retaining employees. “Retention comprises the activities of (1) rewarding employees for performing their jobs effectively (2) ensuring harmonious working relations between employees and manager; and (3) maintaining a safe, healthy work environment” (Casio, 2006, p. 6). Every time the organization looses a staff member, the company will have to train new employees which will ultimately slow down the productivity of the organization. Many other factors can also affect the production of the employees, such as: people skills, system and procedures, knowledge, and management skills. Ultimately, appropriate leadership helps to construct a rewarding work environment which encourages high productivity.
Please keep in mind that as InterClean and EnviroTech become one organization, you may retain additional employees on your team. As the company restructures and the merger takes place, many employees will tend…

Social Commerce

Social Commerce
Social commerce came into being and it is my view that it is here to stay, make business better, inject new energies into business and revolutionize how we do business. It involves using social media interaction and contribution to assist buying and selling of goods and services. It increases customer trust among retailers. Increased online tools including search engines, has optimized trading. Social commerce will not pass away; it makes life easier, comfortable and makes the world smaller or the famous global village. Worthy to note though is that, technology comes with an evil mind with it.
Social commerce has one of the easiest management techniques as it is centrally controlled with sophisticated tools. This cuts tremendously on costs, errors and offers the best error detection and correction. In addition to this, advertisement has been made very easy on both services and products. We no longer need to travel and burn out there, it is a click away. Embrace it! Products and services are located easily, no travel time needed, product and service comparison (R.Kelly Rainer).
Since world’s inception life has never been a bed of roses, it is perched with thorns here and there. I say embrace it and watch out because, it is a trade-off on other factors that includes more time, more costs for shipping, sky rocketing competition customer fear and doubts of unseen goods. Though the cyber world is fast taking over it does not bring with it the product experience before we the customers make up our mind to or not to purchase. Of serious consideration though in the social commerce universe, is cyber security; our credit cards, information and mailing addresses. This one phenomenon can be catastrophic, hey! You should watch out.

A New Measure of Well-Being from a Happy Little Kingdom

What is happiness? In the United States and in many other industrialized countries, it is often equated with money.Economists measure consumer confidence on the assumption that the resulting figure says something about progress and public welfare. The gross domestic product, or G.D.P., is routinely used as shorthand for the well-being of a nation
But the small Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan has been trying out a different idea.In 1972, concerned about the problems afflicting other developing countries that focused only on economic growth, Bhutan’s newly crowned leader, King Jigme Singye Wangchuck, decided to make his nation’s priority not its G.D.P. but its G.N.H., or gross national happiness.Bhutan, the king said, needed to ensure that prosperity was shared across society and that it was balanced against preserving cultural traditions, protecting the environment and maintaining a responsive government. The king, now 49, has been instituting policies aimed at accomplishing these goals.Now Bhutan’s example, while still a work in progress, is serving as a catalyst for far broader discussions of national well-being. Around the world, a growing number of economists, social scientists, corporate leaders and bureaucrats are trying to develop measurements that take into account not just the flow of money but also access to health care, free time with family, conservation of natural resources and other noneconomic factors.The goal, according to many involved in this effort, is in part to return to a richer definition of the word happiness, more like what the signers of the Declaration of Independence had in mind when they included “the pursuit of happiness” as an inalienable right equal to liberty and life itself. The founding fathers, said John Ralston Saul, a Canadian political philosopher, defined happiness as a balance of individual and community interests. “The Enlightenment theory of happiness was an expression of public good or the public…
