Never on Sunday

...Case Study – Never on Sunday 1. The personal beliefs of McCoy and the Cathy families influenced the organizational culture by only expecting from their employees what they expect of themselves. People deserve a day of rest. They deserve a break. The McCoy’s and Cathy’s share their values and beliefs and incorporate this into the expected behaviors.

Never Forget

...the daylight make giant shiny cobwebs of the treetops. The sun had not yet risen and a mist lay over the ground, which made the forest seem rather spooky to him. His nose itched and he longed to scratch it, maybe just nudge it a little, but Pa said don’t move, don’t twitch , don’t even breathe hard. Not one arm, one hand, even one finger, he said. “He knows the woods,” Pa told him; “you’ll never know he’s there; suddenly he’ll just be there looking at you, just looking.” It started so long ago, Tommy remembered, almost a year, when he was just eleven. That night, in the hen-yard, with the weasel’s eyes glistening in the flashlight. He never even fired a shot, just stood there with his mouth open, foolish, while the weasel dashed into the woods. And Pa knocking the rifle from his hands and asking, “Why didn’t you shoot? What you waiting on? What’s wrong with you, boy?” “Pa, I . . . I couldn’t, Pa. I just couldn’t.” Pa hunkered down and pulled on a blade of grass. He didn’t say anything for a minute, just knelt there chewing on that grass. “You never did like to kill nothing did you, boy? Even when you was small.” Tommy looked at the ground with out saying anything and his father sighed, “Tommy, dammit, a man always dies a little when he kills something, but it just plain has to be done. Some animals just ain’t no damn good and got the be killed. Understand?” He nodded without answering, still looking at the ground, and Pa stood......

Above the Clouds

...Paper Critique: “Above the Clouds: A Berkeley View of Cloud Computing” Reviewer: Carol Williams 1. (10%) State the problem the paper is trying to solve. The paper is trying to demonstrate that EMV (a protocol suite and proprietary protocol framework) is broken and needs to be fixed. The paper makes an attempt to clarify terms, provide simple formulas to quantify comparisons between of cloud and everyday Computing, and identify the top technical and non-technical obstacles and opportunities of Cloud Computing. It also states that confusion by clarifying terms, providing simple figures to quantify comparisons between of cloud and conventional Computing, and identifying the top technical and non-technical obstacles and opportunities of Cloud Computing. “We argue that the construction and operation of extremely large-scale, commodity-computer datacenters at lowcost locations was the key necessary enabler of Cloud Computing, for they uncovered the factors of 5 to 7 decrease in cost of electricity, network bandwidth, operations, software, and hardware available at these very large economies of scale. These factors, combined with statistical multiplexing to increase utilization compared a private cloud, meant that cloud computing could offer services below the costs of a medium-sized datacenter and yet still make a good profit.” 2. (20%) State the main contribution of the paper: solving a new problem, proposing a new algorithm, or presenting a new evaluation......

Never Be the Same

...I mentioned earlier because people don’t usually think of animals as having the capability to be upset about their actions. Remorse is ordinarily thought of as being a quality that us humans have, but one that animals would not possess. In the panel 1 continues to repeat “Bad dog, bad dog, bad dog” which shows that he is disappointed in his own actions and that it is bothering him that he had to do what he did to the man. It is the only thing that is on his mind, even when 2 asks about home after it, 1 just keeps on saying “Bad dog, bad dog” because it is the only thing that he can think about, and he can’t get it off of his mind. Another way that this particular scene shows a human quality through the animals is you notice that 1 never attacked until the hunter actually hurt 3. The hunter actually pointed his gun and 3 for a few panels and warned him to get back. It wasn’t until the human took action and actually shot 3 that the others took action. This quality is true in common every-day animals as well as humans. Generally speaking the quickest way to cause humans or animals to take action is to mess with their group, in particular their family. I view the three animals as a sort of family, they had to go through a lot together, like families do. They only had each other which is how families are, they are usually the ones you can count on the most to be there for you. So when the human attacked a member of the group, of course 1 was going to come to his......

Never Event

...CMS AND HOSPITAL REINBURSMENT FOR NEVER EVENTS Never Events are errors in medical care that are of concern to both the public and healthcare professionals, and providers. The term "Never Event" was first introduced in 2001 by Ken Kizer, MD, former CEO of the National Quality Forum (NQF), in reference to particularly shocking medical errors such as wrong-site surgery that should never occur (Rosenthal 2012). The CMS issued new rules in 2008 that halt payment to hospitals for treatment of preventable patient complications and injuries, which referred to as “Never Events”. Ten categories of hospital-acquired condition that are reasonably preventable were identify by CMS (ECRI 2008). These are pressure ulcer stages III and IV; falls and trauma; surgical site infection after bariatric surgery for obesity, certain orthopedic procedures, and bypass surgery ,vascular- catheter associated infection; catheter-associated urinary tract infection; administration of incompatible blood; air embolism; and foreign object unintentionally retained after surgery All these are preventable conditions and are subject to nonpayment. This rule that halt payment to hospitals for preventable patient complication and injuries, has tremendous effect on hospital nursing practice. (Herb 2009). As the public becomes aware of the new CMS rules, legal concern have been raise about an increase in malpractice claims related to hospital acquired conditions. Strict liability imposes legal responsibility for...

Above Ground Pool Setuo

...Above Ground Setup Angie Benton ECPI University The complicated process I would like to explain about is a above ground pool installation process. This process requires several steps, people, and patience. Install can be a tedious job but if everyone works together it should go well. Step one: You must gather several friends and family who are willing and able to help.Offer a cookout, pool privileges, or other means necessary to get them to help.You cannot install by yourself. Step 2: Find a good level spot in your yard. The area must be level and cleaned of any rocks, sticks, and other debris. Step 3: Install level locking ring to prepared area. Make sure the rings are securely fastened together. The locking ring is what holds your pool wall. Step 4: Put down a ground vapor barrier.The barrier will prevent debris and weeds from growing under your pool. Spread pool sand on barrier and make small mounds around the edge,this aids in the wall support. Step 5: Now comes the fun part and when you need help.Install metal wall , making sure it is securely fastened into the ring. Put one or two on the inside of pool wall, to make sure your mounds stay shaped against wall. Step 6: This step will also require help of your recruits. Position someone on all sides of the pool wall. Unroll your liner, inspecting as you roll it out for any damage. Place the liner inside of pool ,spread...

Never Again

...Never Again I’ve had enough. Why am I living like this when I don’t have to? I have my own life to live. There’s no reason as to why you, my own father, can control me. I might only be 12 but I can make my own decisions. “Hey Dad, can I go to lunch with Mum?” At this point I was cheerful and enjoying my morning… Well that changed quickly. I didn’t know what I’d done. He lost it. I only asked to go to lunch, what’s the big deal? He was completely mad at me. He was yelling at me until he got in the car and screamed out the driveway. My brother had no idea what he could do to help. Neither of us had ever seen Dad like this. I was a complete mess; my eyes were red and puffy and had tears pouring down my cheeks. Everything hurt. I was scared and upset. I had no idea what to do. How was I supposed to know what to do? I was only 12. I walked back to my room after yet another argument with Dad. For all I know he is oblivious to what or how I feel. Why shouldn’t he be? Yes he’s my dad but I can’t speak my thoughts. Everything has been kept in for too long. I was only just holding together. It was Dad’s weekend to have me but I wanted to go to lunch with mum. I’m not sure what happened to him the night before, or whether it was just his feelings and emotions that had built up over the years, but what I asked must’ve been the last straw. He lost it. He took it all out on me. I could hear the tyres coming back down the gravel driveway. I got up and sat outside on the...

Above the Law

...Above the Law Cassandra J. Murrey South University Composition II | ENG1200 S01 Faculty:  Randell Wolf December 9, 2014 An article published in the New York Times was released over the weekend describing two separate views towards capital punishment. In California there was a ballot to appeal the death penalty and replace it with mandatory life without parole, and the biggest advocates were Ron Briggs and Mr. Heller who would like to reverse what they have come to view as, “one of the biggest mistakes of their lives” (Danzig, 2012). A law school professor Paula Mitchell stated that by repealing the death penalty in California this would allow us to focus on cost because it is the most “politically neutral” angle (Danzig, 2012). Although there are many different opinions of capital punishment that is believed to be immoral and non-productive at times, these advocates of capital punishment have proven this to be a cost effective, and ethically correct deterrent of future murders. Mr. Briggs stated in a conversation with his father that when capital punishment was established in California 1978 it started with 300 people on death row, and now the state is up to 720 inmates who are waiting on death row (Danzig, 2012). He proceeds to make his case by saying to his republican friend by keeping the death penalty active it would do swift justice by getting the criminals and murderers through the system quickly by applying the death penalty. The American public believes that...

Going Above and Beyond

...Going Above and Beyond Lisa Flanagan HSM/220 7/3/15 Professor Hector Smith Jr. Human Service workers can use all the motivation they can get, some days are very rewarding, and you meet a great family that is so happy for your help and attention to their problems. Other days, you cannot wait to get home and have a glass of wine and tell someone anyone who will listen about your horrible day. Going above and beyond, will help to even out those bad and good days. This reward program will motivate, excite and help all employees to want to do a better job as well as help to make the job more enjoyable. My idea would be to create a token based program for human service workers. This program would increase retention and moral. Though it still may be an employer’s market (Sankey, 2009), there are still ways to keep good people working for you, and sometimes it is not all about the pay. There are many of the nine factors of motivation that do not have anything to do with pay. For example respect, quality of work, feeling important at work, and receiving praise for a job well done, none of these things cost a company anything. With the token program, workers would be given a set of guidelines that are their baseline or job descriptions, those things listed there would be expectations. Achieving things above and beyond the job description would earn you tokens that could be redeemed for items or raffle tickets for bigger items. Some of the things that......

Influencing Above and Below

...Influencing Above and Below Shane Bayless MGT 665 May 25, 2015 Ray November, LL.M, J.D. Influencing Above and Below The ability to influence your boss and your subordinates is a critical skill to be successful. When attempting to advance or gain more responsibility within your organization, you will need to have influence with your superiors to recommend you for advancement. It is a similar thought process for influencing your subordinates at work. Seeing both of these types of people as potential allies is always a good first step. How you treat these people will depend on what steps you take to influence them. When influencing your supervisor, what steps will you take? Akai is my direct supervisor and work. He is fairly new to the position and his team has been expanded to nearly double the size he had a few weeks ago. He is eager and willing to assist his subordinates which will allow me to influence him if I find a better position in the company. I will need to work hard, meet my goals, and show him that I am able to handle more responsibility. According to Cohen and Brandford (2005), the approach to influencing your supervisor is handled in four steps; first see your boss as a potential ally or partner, then make sure you understand your boss’s world, then be aware of the resources, or currencies you currently have or need to acquire, and finally pay to how your supervisor wants to be related to. These are the basic steps to helping gain......

Never Been

...When you think about it, there isn’t a day that goes by without being tempted. Temptation comes along our paths every day in our lives. Whether it is from the foods we eat, the people we talk to, or the choices we make, knowing that sometimes they aren’t right. This is why the rapper Logic decided to inspire, or rather uplift, any of his audience going through some adversities or rough patches in life, in his song “Never Been”. Throughout his song, he uses countless examples of how he overcame adversities of his own and is reassuring that immoral temptation is challenging but he believes that we can all overcome it. Logic opens this song with the lyrics, “I’ve been workin’ like I’ve never been, I struggle everyday but I just can’t let the devil in”. Logic is saying how he recognizes how difficult it is to refrain from temptation and how he learned from every situation he has been in. We not only deal with our personal demons, but we also come in contact with outside demons such as the environment that we are put in and by some people perceiving to be the devil to destroy us. In these lyrics right here, Logic is saying we struggle everyday but we can’t let anything or anyone distract us from what we want. These demons, whether internal or external, try to corrupt us but he wants us to know that we are not alone. Immediately after these lyrics, Logic raps “And if I knew back then what I know right now, what I know right now, I’d be better than I’ve ever been, better than......

Above the Law

...Above the Law: An Executive’s Double Standard – Fraudulent Use of Corporate Funds Traditionally, the positive image of a company or a brand is very important in the contemporary world. As a result, the question of morality of each individual working within an organization is of a paramount importance. In such a situation there should be no exceptions from the rule and executives could not be in a privileged position. This is the desirable ideal many companies strive to achieve at least in a public eye. However, the reality turns to be quite different from what is expected and the analyzed case of an executive’s double standard is just another evidence of the fact that the real life is so complicated that the common rules, including moral and ethical ones, cannot fully regulate it and often it is necessary to make very difficult decisions getting through double standards. In fact the case of Jack who revealed the fraudulent use of corporate funds by one of the veterans of BMI, Troy Sozuko, seems to be not an exception and the dilemma he has to solve, being quite complicated, is a typical case of double standards existing not only within the whole company but also on the personal level. It is obvious that Troy Sozuko really violated not only legal but also moral norms since he simply used corporate funds for his personal purposes and his gift was perfectly proved by Jack’s investigation. Moreover, it should be said that the executive’s gift is evident also because a thorough......
