*There were several things that I found to be very helpful with these videos. Here are my thoughts on each video and what specific things that I found to be very helpful and important. All of these videos provided crucial facts on how to be effective and do well in on class assignments as well as any other class too.

Financial Aid
The Financial Aid video provided contained very important information that is good to know because it tells about subsidized and unsubsidized loans. The information about paying back loans and which loans have interest is important to know because it can save you money. Its important to know that you don’t have to repay loans until you have finished your degree.

This video talks about the great opportunity you have with University of Phoenix. Video lets you know that you can receive help and ask questions at anytime to get help to complete what you have to get done. This video provided important information about the different forums, where to post assignments and discussions, and how to use the main page and website.

This information helps explain how to get through the class and shows the course information, policies, syllabus and a very helpful weekly outline. The weekly outline will help me the most because it will let me know exactly what to do each day.

This video shows you where you post your discussion responses for the week and also where you respond to your classmates about what they have posted. The discussion section also has that chat room that is used for discussing things as well.

This video is probably the most important video in my opinion. The provided information shows where to view, submit, and it also shows a summary of all assignments which is helpful as well. I think its also great that you can save your assignments in Microsoft Word just incase…...

...analyzes them. It asks of each myth “what must go without saying in order for this myth to appear to be true?” And, as before, it investigates this question by turning to popular films as alternative worlds that both illustrate and deconstruct these IR myths. So, for example, the myth “Empire is the new world order” is reconsidered through the 2000 film Memento, and the myth “There is a clash of civilizations” is re-read through the 2000 film East is East. As in the previous edition, reexamining IR myths through popular films does not only allow us to rethink the IR myths themselves; it also enables us to think more deeply about the relationship between IR theory and popular culture. In writing this revised edition, I owe all the intellectual debts I owed in the first edition and more. Annette Davison, Mick Dillon, Mark Duffield, Jenny Edkins, Tracey Golstein, Mark Lacy, Adam Maton, Sasha Roseneil, Craig Warkentin, Jutta Weldes, and my students at Leeds University have all provided helpful comments, advice, and/or support. Francois Debrix has again proved to be an exceptionally perceptive reader, critic, colleague, and friend. And three anonymous reviewers provided helpful comments. What I also realized as I read through the first edition and worked on this second edition is that my training in IR theory – the things I take for granted as known – was exceptional. At Arizona State University, not only Richard Ashley but also Pat McGowan, Karen Rasler, and Steve Walker and, beyond......

Is It Getting Out of Hand?

... Aspen Garcia Period: 4 Pomranka-English 11 December 7, 2012 Is It Getting Out of Hand? Most Americans could say they can’t go a day without texting, checking their email, updating their Facebook/Twitter profile, or getting on the computer to look something up. Today we have every form of technology a person could think of. Cell phones have evolved into something more than just a phone call; they allow people to send text messages, check email, get on the internet, take photos, play games, use GPS, listen to music and so much more. Computers allow people to surf the web, email, access social networking websites, type documents, and explore many new programs. “These advances sometimes have negative consequences, and they have forced heated debates about whether or not humanity was better off before the new technology was introduced” (Technology Gale, online). Technology has become tremendously popular over the last several years. It has begun to take over people’s lives and affect the way they live their daily life in a negative way. People are becoming dependent on the technology and it’s causing people to be lazy. If students are doing research, they don’t hesitate to get on Google to look up what they need. I know for me, it is an easy way to get the answers I need. Instead of coming up with topics and information by getting a textbook or book from the library, they just get it from the internet because it’s quick and easy. Also, Technology makes it easy for people to......

Getting Out of the Military

...Getting out of the Military Edwin Schulze University of Phoenix Management Theory and Practice MGT/230 Willetra Brittian January 14, 2013 Getting out of the Military Getting out of the military was the biggest decision that I had to make. After 10 years of dedicated service, I decided to hang it up and finally become a family man. This decision came with a lot of pros and cons and big decisions that I had to make with my family. (T & A, 2011, p. 89) there are six stages in decision making, they are indentifying and diagnosing the problem, generating alternative solutions, evaluating alternatives, making the choice, implementing the decision, and evaluating the decision. In the following paragraphs I will discuss the steps that I had to make when making the decision of getting out of the military. In the first stage of the decision process indentifying the problem, I had to decide on what was right for my family and what was right for me when making the decision on getting out of the military. This was a difficult decision due to the fact that the economy was on a downhill and jobs were very scarce. The second stage of the decision process is generating alternative solutions. In this stage of the process, my family and I had to way out the options of the benefits of getting out such as more time with family and able to start a new career. I also had to see the negative solutions as well, such as having to pay for health benefits and starting from the bottom. In......

...Debt Maxed Out was a very informational movie to me especially because I learn things about debt that will help me. My family has problems with debt and credit card using so I wish by watching this movie I may help them with those problems. Some of the things that I heard and saw on this movie, I never knew about. Maxed Out gave me an advantage over most college students who are prone and vulnerable to credit cards and debt. College Students usually are the most vulnerable to credit cards and debt. When you go to school on your first day you see many stands with credit card companies or banks who are offering to take you in to their company. They don’t do it because they want to help but because they know that they can get money from student. When you are in college you may not have a lot of money and so you get a credit card and use it because you think it won’t hurt you. Therefore they get the student with the interest which they can not pay because if they had extra money then they wouldn't have had to use the credit card. Credit card companies also have another type of people that they target and maybe more than college students which is people who have already filed for bankruptcy. They go after people who have filled for bankruptcy because once you file for it once then you can’t do it again. Of course the reason most people are bankrupt in the fist place is because of debt with credit cards or loans. So then they already no that they get addicted......

U.S. Debt

...The U.S. debt and its budget surplus and deficit(s) has been an on-going discussion way back from the foundation of America. America started borrowing money during the American Revolution. It wasn't officially considered a national debt until the Independence and the declaration of the U.S. Constitution. By the year of 1835, they were completely debt-free due to several budget surpluses and an effective budget planning. However, the budget surplus didn't last that long as the borrowing of money started again right after a year. The U.S. borrows money from Federal Reserve, U.S. Individuals and Institutions, Social Security Trust Fund, and other foreign nations and governments by issuing bonds for sale through the U.S. Treasury. Throughout history, some of the key reasons for the accumulation of the national debt was due to wars such as; WWI, WWII, Cold War, etc., drastic tax-cuts, The Great Depression, economic recessions, military and defence spending, welfare programs, bail-outs of big corporations, etc. America is forced to borrow money every time when their expenses are more than their revenue. This borrowing of money ultimately puts a debt on the U.S. and its citizens. The majority of the U.S. debt is owned by Federal Reserve and other U.S. individuals and institutions like; Social Security Fund, etc. whereas the second largest holder of the U.S. debt is China followed by Japan. Both China and Japan own 1.1+ trillion of U.S. debt each. The major borrowing of the debt......

Getting the Most Out Advertising

...Getting the Most Out of Advertising and Promotion Demasiada publicidad y promoción es desperdiciada. Esto puede evitarse con una fuente de datos única de Marketing (Single-source data). Hasta hace poco la efectividad de las campañas publicitarias y promociones se basaba prácticamente sólo en la fe. Se recolectaba mucha información estadística pero pocos median lo importante: el incremento en ventas de un producto por sobre el aumento natural que éste hubiera tenido sin haber hecho una inversión publicitaria. Gracias a nuevas fuentes de datos de marketing (como códigos de barras, home-scans, people meter, registros en tarjetas de crédito, etc.) lo anterior está cambiando. Ahora los marketeros pueden cruzar esta información del consumo de los productos versus los datos de promoción y publicidad efectuados (frecuencia, tipo de mensaje, medio, etc.) para medir la efectividad y eficiencia de sus campañas. Usando los sistemas de Single-Source Marketing Data (1) los gerentes han encontrado una oportunidad única para mejorar la productividad del Marketing de las empresas. Teniendo en cuenta lo anterior, los manager sabrán donde poner incentivos o bien reducir inversiones de marketing. Más aún, los managers seniors deberán dejar atrás los “enfoques basados en la sabiduría” para analizar estrategias de marketing sustentadas en datos duros. Lo que está mal en el enfoque tradicional de la sabiduría Como antiguamente no se podía medir el nivel de ventas incrementales......

Find Out How I Conquered Debt and Earned More Money in 2014 to only take care of those that chose to be associates with the company and not just customers * Associate based companies will never survive and in a way they are more of a illegal pyramid company. The reason I say this is most companies only make money when they sale their products to consumers and not to the associate. * Consumers are what real honest companies focus on. Think about it …If you take a 100 percent of a companies earnings and break it down * You will realize that only 20% are sales associates and 80% are consumers. * Now with that said how can a company only survive off of the 20% of associates and tell the 80% of consumers we are not worried about you because you are just consumers. * They would be out of business right? III. The Future of Network Marketing * What is the future of network marketing? A question you may ask yourself if looking to join a company, or you might already be with a network marketing company and curious about the future of the industry you are in. * * In today's uncertain financial climate more and more people are fearing for their job security, pensions, savings, investments and house value. Everywhere you look there are cuts and streamlining. Governments are cutting public sector staff, pensions and investment. Private sector firms are tightening budgets throughout and making redundancies, here in the UK there are even redundancies being made in the armed forces. So it is natural......

Debt and the Generations

...Debt and the Generations Summary As the UK faces a difficult economic period, many families and households are suffering financially. 65% of all debt belongs to households aged between 35 and 54, and within this age bracket 35-44 year olds hold a staggering 37% of this debt. This demonstrates the rise in debt hitting its peak between people’s mid-30s and mid-40s, however research has shown this is changing; younger consumers are now more likely to be less financially aware. This has resulted in around 75% of people aged 18-39 having unsecured debts, and becoming increasingly reliant on credit in order to meet financial commitments - 19% of 18-24 year olds are “very or fairly likely to borrow in the next 3 months”. Not only do younger generations have difficulty in getting onto the housing ladder, with 84% of first time buyers under 30 having to turn to financial assistance in order to buy, but many of the younger generation (almost 3.2 million) also have student loans that must be repaid. Both of these are factors resulting in a reduction in available income, meaning younger and future generations will have less money to save and invest, potentially reducing their quality of life during retirement. Older generations are more likely to own property and savings by the time they reach retirement age – nearly half of all assets in the UK are owned by the 60+ age group. There are, however, a minority of the older generation who owe a large amount of debt. Around 7% of...

...Debt Ceiling Crisis This essay is intended to provide a breakdown of the debate concerning the debt ceiling. As the house debates, the debts increases and the issue continues to become complicated. The nation is in a crisis along with complex issues. President Obama along with the rest of the house is at odds deciding if the debt ceiling should be raised. The debate on Capitol Hill has been going on for few months now, as the August 2, deadline nears. The democratic and Republican Party both agree it is imperative that the ceiling needs to be raised but the issues surrounding the debt separates congress. The current debt ceiling stands at 14 trillion dollars and continues to grow. This debate has divided the nation’s citizens as well. It is not just a situation of more money to spend, if the ceiling is not raised the money would have to come from social security and Medicare. The Democratic Party supports raising the debt ceiling. The democrats know that if the ceiling is not passed there would be a dramatic downward spiral in the nation’s economy. This act would cut social security and Medicare. The democrats acknowledge the monies borrowed must be repaid but not at the expense of taking away from the elderly. “Understand - raising the debt ceiling does not allow Congress to spend more money. It simply gives our country the ability to pay the bills that Congress has already racked up. In the past, raising the debt ceiling was routine. Since the 1950s, Congress has......

Bad Debt

...nonbusiness bad debt deduction disputing that the entire sum of $40,000 was a gift from Jamie to Tom and a bona fide loan never existed. Facts: • The first loan of $30,000 occurred in 2006 while Tom was an unemployed salesman. • The second loan of $10,000 occurred in 2007 after Tom failed to maintain steady employment. • The debtor made one interest payment of $200 early in 2007 as a show of good faith. • Both promissory notes were signed on December 1st 2008. • The stated rate of interest was 3% which was below the market rate of 5.5% at the time. • Jamie filed for the nonbusiness bad debt deduction in 2010. • The loan had no due date. Issues: Jamie Douglas is seeking a nonbusiness bad debt deduction from her taxable income under IRC sec. 166.1. In order to claim this deduction she must have proof that the transaction was indeed debt and not a gift. To do this Jamie must show that she and Tom had a true debtor creditor relationship and that the debt has become worthless in the year she is claiming the loss. In court the IRS contended that a bona fide loan never existed because the nature of the transaction is more appropriately classified as a gift and that repayment was contingent upon Tom getting a job. Therefore the contingency of the repayment disestablishes the debtor creditor relationship because a failure to meet the conditions will prevent the borrower from having the legal obligation to pay. The IRS also makes the argument that even if it was a bad......

Sleep Debt

... Sleep debt In students’ life, it is common to stay awake all night to study or to write a paper. Students themselves consider this as pressed by competing schedules. Actually, students who have to spend their time cramming for an exam are a result of Boomerang. They spend their time which supposed to study by playing computer games, dazing, or just browsing the internet. They mistakenly believe that by ignoring the need to sleep could eventually make up the time they have wasted previously, as result; they could do well on the exam next day. It is understandable to think in that way. Because students do make an effort to achieve their goal, which is a higher grade they desire. After preparing for 24 hours staying awake, students went to the classroom confidently. They believe that their efforts would pay back. However, the result could be unbelievable. There was once a research done by participants from 44 college students. It turns out that sleep-deprived participants performed significantly worse than the no deprived participants on the cognitive task. However, the sleep-deprived participants rated their concentration and effort higher than the nondeprived participants did (June, Amy 512). This was exactly the same as what students who spend their whole night preparing an exam think. They believe they put more effort compared to students who sleep well before the exam day. It indicates that college students...

...------------------------------------------------- Debt A debt is an obligation owed by one party (the debtor) to a second party, the creditor; usually this refers to assets granted by the creditor to the debtor, but the term can also be used metaphorically to covermoral obligations and other interactions not based on economic value.[citation needed] A debt is created when a creditor agrees to lend a sum of assets to a debtor. Debt is usually granted with expected repayment; in modern society, in most cases, this includes repayment of the original sum, plus interest.[1] In finance, debt is a means of using anticipated future purchasing power in the present before it has actually been earned. Some companies and corporations use debt as a part of their overall corporate finance strategy. ------------------------------------------------- Debtor A debtor is an entity that owes a debt to another entity. The entity may be an individual, a firm, a government, a company or other legal person. The counterparty is called a creditor. When the counterparts of this debt arrangement is a bank, the debtor is more often referred to as a borrower. ------------------------------------------------- Accounts receivable Accounts receivable also known as Debtors, is money owed to a business by its clients (customers) and shown on its Balance Sheet as an asset.[1] It is one of a series ofaccounting transactions dealing with the billing of a customer for goods and services that the......
