When a Voice Travels

When I was about five I adored my bonca. I would count down the days I had to wait for him to visit from Wisconsin. When he finally did visit, he’d bring me something each time. Then on the morning of his second day visiting he would pull out his guitar an amp and sing to me. He did this every visit, no matter where we were at. I got to the age where I could recognize the words I began to sing along. It wasn't long after that I began to believe in the power of my voice and my microphone.

Singing was something that came naturally I suppose. Although I often hid it my bonca knew. One day I was thumbing through albums while an Etta James song played. I sang along quietly. My bonca turned it up a little and I hadn't noticed until he placed something in front of my face. It was a microphone. I looked up at him confused and he spoke softly to me “sing, baby” he said, and I could barely make out his words over my heart thumping loudly. This was the moment I always dreaded. It was his final gift. This microphone that would harness my voice and then set it free it to everyone. I smiled shyly and refused but I could feel the disappointment coming from my bonca as he turned the music down behind me.

I was so afraid of that microphone. It's a fear that still surfaces every once in awhile. To sing into a microphone changed everything I knew about myself. It made me something more, and that was not a change I was ready for. Over the ride home from that trip I decided it was something I had to do. If I didn't I would feel locked up inside myself. It was bound to happen. When the time was right I would. The microphone was a way to free who I was hiding. Not just for me but for everyone.

Fast forward a few years and I’m enjoying the last days of summer before my first year of highschool. I haven't talked to my bonca in a while but I…...

...Come along with me on an exciting time traveling journey, on our trip we will go to many far away periods, including the Italian Renaissance, the Early 20th Century and the Indian Civilization. Time travel can be dis-orienting. This is also what it is like to appreciate works of art from different periods. As your tour guide back into time I have prepared this book to prepare you for the tour. The first three chapters of this book, prepares travelers for their journey and will help them remain oriented. The information provided in the first three chapters provide a frame of reference that can reduce the dis-orienting effect of visiting later periods of art history and cultures one may be unfamiliar with. We will ask;" how is the work of art we are observing "attained". Getting a proper orientation of architecture or a visual art is similar to taking a tour of a college campus. When you approach a college campus for the first time there are various buildings on the campus. You will have your first impressions as you approach the campus from a distance and more impressions as you get closer- which changes your perspective. Once one has visited several college campuses one learns how to orient themself. You can quickly find the administration building, library, dorms, etc. To keep one from getting lost in the world of Art developing a frame of reference can reduce culture shock and time disorientation. This book examines three periods and three different types of Art that will......

With that in mind, they also worry about the expense. Is the weather going to cooperate? Is their luggage going to arrive? Have you ever been sitting at the bank drive through, watching people submitting their transactions by way of pneumatic tubes? Imagine being inside that pod travelling at 800 miles per hour with no worries of the above-mentioned. Why not alleviate travel concerns and climb aboard the tubular travel system? Even though the initial cost of development, construction, permits and approvals needed will have a hefty price tag for this mass transportation system. In the long run, it will provide the people of the world what better for our environment, faster, safer, and less expensive way to travel is. Tubular Travel Overview * While the elements of the earth continue to diminish year after year from natural and more so man made creations, it is time to prepare ourselves for the repercussions, if we chose to do nothing.

...3. When and where was Andreas Vesalius born? 4. How could his family background have influenced his decision to study medicine? 5. In which area of medicine did Vesalius excel? The Church now allowed human dissection, but did not allow bodies to be boiled up to produce skeletons. Vesalius desperately wanted to examine the human skeleton. The only way he could do this was to wait until the bodies of hung criminals had decomposed on the gallows. When the bones were bare he would remove the bodies and smuggle them back into town to study them. 6. What was the Church’s position on dissection at this time? 7. How did Veslius secure human skeletons for study? Vesalius was so successful that he became Professor of Surgery (responsible for teaching anatomy) at Padua University when he was just 23. At this time, the Catholic Church said that the works of Galen were inspired by God. So, in the universities of Europe, anatomy was taught by professors who simply read aloud from Galen’s books. If dissections took place they were usually carried out by Barber Surgeons who had no medical qualifications and who were not allowed to question the word of Galen. In contrast, Vesalius gave lectures in which he carried out dissections in front of his students, explaining his own theories and not relying on those of Galen. Hundreds came to watch each lecture. He also encouraged his students to examine the human body for themselves. 8. What happened to Vesalius when he......

...Cabin Crew and Event Managers Duties and responsibility Similarities. The similarities of duties and responsibility that cabin crew and event mangers have is they both have to deals with customers face to face. For example cabin crew members would work to ensure safety with passengers on the plane. As for Event mangers they would have to personally speak to their customer and discuss what they would want, going over the risk assessment that may happen during their event. Cabin crews that work in British Airways needs for example would need to create relationships with their members and services partnership. This is so they can continue to use their services and results when working together will be better. This is the same for event mangers as they would need to keep a good relationship with its partnerships as they would later on need its services for another client. This is because many clients an event manger works with require the same services and products. Both jobs needs to keep providing excellent services and behaviour to all customers they deal with. What is also the same is that both jobs needs to be on time. For a cabin crew member they would need to be on time as they work with the time of the airlines departures. They would need to come earlier as they would need to check if all the equipment is working and bring on board their own bag before the flight starts. As for an event manger they would need to be earlier to event that they have created with the......

...Moorhead, 2011, p.93). Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is the most basic and the most popular theoretical frameworks related to need-based perspective on motivation. According to the theory human needs can be classified into several layers and an individuals’ most immediate needs have to be satisfied in order to upper layer needs to be used as motivational factors (Maslow, 1943). Theoretical framework of Hierarchy of Needs is effectively utilised by Virgin Atlantic in order to motivate its workforce at all levels depending on the nature of their immediate needs. Specifically, while motivational tools for junior level employees, mainly include financial incentives, emphasise is given to the perspectives of personal and professional growth when motivating medium level managers. However, it is important to note that financial incentives remain to be one of the most effective motivational tools for employees at all levels and this fact is fully acknowledged by Virgin Atlantic management. Martins (2010) confirms this viewpoint by informing that the compensation won by Virgin Atlantic from British Airways for libel suit has been shared with all employees of Virgin Atlantic. Two Factor theory of Frederick Hertzberg represents an alternative important theoretical framework related to the topic of employee motivation. This need-based theory distinguishes two factors – motivation factors and hygiene factors that play significant role on the level of employee motivation.......
