Impact Statement of Movie: Happy
We have learned that three factors that determine happiness is a genetic set point (50%), intentional activity (40%), and life circumstances (10%).
If our genetic set point is determined to make up 50% of our capacity for happiness, what are the inherited traits that are responsible for that? Is it being blessed with perfect balance brain chemistry? A physical body that effortlessly responds to every demand and challenge required of it? Is it having both of these and also living in a time and place that reveres and rewards both of these?
Watching the movie, I enjoyed being able to learn about individuals from other cultures and different life circumstances as to what they consider happiness. I enjoyed the reaffirmation that happiness is subjective to the person experiencing the life terms dealt to them.

However, I believe is that one can find people with every degree of happiness and unhappiness, everywhere and anywhere. One could find a similar representation of each and every person featured in the movie- all in the one major city in our country. Of course this is partly due to the divergent sets of ethnic groups in American society but even so, the more diverse the growing subcultures are, the more opportunity

A major point though, is that I believe how a culture (that includes the family of origin) responds to the individual member accounts for much more than 10%. A culture that is extremely “tribal” dominates and shapes an individual member’s locus of control can have a greater impact on that members 10% and 40% factors that determine their happiness.

It was interesting to note that it was shown that the extremes of happiness and sadness are both considered short lived and will return to that set point discussed (of course, baring any disorders that would or could otherwise take over)

There is much so much more…...

Impact Statement

...Impact Statement “It’s better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and regret.” --Jackie Joyner-Kersee It is my aspiration as a teacher to help students meet their fullest potential in life. By during so, my role as a teacher is to guide and provide an environment which is conducive for learning. By assisting children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their own ideas I am allowing students the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations. Providing student’s access to hands-on activities and allowing adequate time and space to use materials that reinforce the lesson being studied creates an opportunity for individual discovery and construction of knowledge to occur. Each child has something unique and special to offer the world and it is up to me as an educator to develop their potential. By giving children the tools in which to cultivate their own knowledge I will teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful. Presenting curriculum that involves the interests of the children and makes learning relevant to life will help to develop children to become caring and active members of society. Teaching is a lifelong learning process of learning about new philosophies and new strategies, learning from the parents and community, learning from colleagues, and especially learning from the children. I feel that this impact statement relates to......

Impacts to the Profit and Loss Statement

...Impacts to the Profit and Loss Statement AB299-02 Associates Capstone in Management January 21, 2013 As we can see, Tim’s Coffee Shoppe is one of the more successful businesses in town; being located near the local university gives Tim a great customer base. Tim’s Coffee Shoppe seems to acquire most of its business from the college students along with the people who work in the area. Once we begin to take a look at Tim’s income statement, greatest expense is the supplies for the coffee shop. Since there are new businesses that are moving in and around town, it is safe to say that Tim’s business will probably pick up. If his business picks up then Tim’s income will increase. But there is a price to pay with the increase in his income; there will be an increase in his expenses. We can see that Tim’s highest expense is his supplies, so this also means he will have to put out more money to increase his supply of supplies. It seems the second highest expense was salaries. Being that Tim will be gaining more business, he’s going to need more manpower to help serve the customers that will be coming in. This means Tim will have to pay more employees and in turn, his salary expense will increase. As expected, taxes, rent, depreciation, leasing, insurance and interest follow. In the year 2008, Tim’s Coffee Shoppe earned $400,527 while his total expenses were $326,016. This leaves Tim with a net income of $74,511. So the question is asked, will Tim’s business grow and......

Impact of the Profit and Loss Statement

...Unit 6: Impact to the Profit and Loss Statement Eugenio Fernandez Cruzado Kaplan University AB299-37WCBOL Impact to the Profit and Loss Statement Tim’s Coffee Shoppe has been very successful lately with the local businesses around the shop and the large university. Tim seems to get most of his business from college students and people working in the downtown area. In Tim’s income statement, it shows that his highest expense is supplies for the coffee shop. His second highest expense is salaries. Then next are taxes, rent, depreciation, lease, insurance and interest in that following order. Tim’s Coffee Shoppe earned $400,527 in 2008 and his total expense were $326,016, which leaves him with a net income of $74,511. So if there are local businesses moving in around Tim’s Coffee Shoppe, will his business increase and what does this mean for his expenses, income and so forth? Granted, Tim’s business will pick up greatly with new businesses moving into the area. Therefore, Tim will probably earn more income, yet this means more expenses. We learned that Tim’s highest expense is supplies. If Tim gains more business, this means he will need more supplies and in return, spend more money on supplies. The second highest expense was salaries. If Tim gains more business, he may need to hire more employees to keep up with his growing business. This means Tim will have to pay more employees and this means his salaries expense will increase as well. Tim’s business...

Happy Thoughts Are the Secret to a Happy Life

...continual stress accumulating over time or dramatic unresolved emotional trauma. Therefore, EFT is a great tool to release any tensions and anxiety feelings. 2 A serious illness can take away the hope of a happy life. However, the right attitude can turn your world around. Louise Hay, author of the book “ You can heal your life” was diagnosed with cancer and had a 50% chance of surviving. She believes the cancer occurred due to her traumatic childhood, and her resentment made her prone to cancer. Because she was sexually abused, it was ''expected'' that the disease would develop in her vagina. She asked the doctors to wait for six months before undertaking any treatment. Louise started eating very healthily, did a lot of praying and constant visualization of a stream of crystal-clear water healing her entire body. Additionally, she let go of the hatred she had felt for her parents. Most oncologist would disclaim the idea of curing cancer by positive thinking. Though, according to Hay, six months later her doctors declared she was cured.. 3 Gayle A. Sulik, a social science researcher and writer affiliated with the University at Albany (SUNY) Department of Women’s Studies stated: ''positive thinking may help people to feel better emotionally, but they don’t positively impact cancer progression or survival… People who think positively get cancer and die from cancer at the same rates as people who do not.'' 4Technically, if we take into account the scientific......

...In this essay, I am going to talk about two of the many things that make me feel happy and what I think it means to be happy. The first thing that makes me happy is being surrounded by the people you love and care for, which is family. Being closer to your family makes me happy. It is always good to be around those that love you more often than being apart from them. My family almost always gets together on Sundays. We go to my grandmother’s house and spend the day with each other. I find this to be relaxing and I feel that having people that care for each other makes you a happier person. Also, when people have children they should be there for them because they will live a healthier life if their parents are in their life more often. It is also good to notice and acknowledge kids when they accomplish their goals because it will make them and yourself happier than if you just ignore them. Family is also a very important part of one’s life because they will always be there for you until you die. Whereas, a wife or significant other may not be there for you until you die or in times of need. This is because they can always leave even after years and years of being with one another. The second thing that makes me feel happy is being able to live and enjoying life. I do not really stress, the reason for it, is because there is nothing to stress about. I enjoy my life and that is what makes me happy. Another thing, is that I accomplish the goals that I set for myself. I will......

Be Happy of motion affects us when we are in a moving vehicle because, no matter how fast the car is moving, we will be moving that fast also. Things have the tendency to keep doing what they are currently doing. As we said before, Inertia is the tendency to resist the change in motion. So, if you crash your car into something, your body will resist the change in motion and, unless something else stops it first, your body will crash into the object at the same speed that the car crashed into the object. Seatbelts and airbags can help protect people from this danger. Seatbelts safely provide an outside force that can stop or slow down your body when the car stops or slows down airbags work by increasing the time of impact and decreasing the force of impact thus stopping you from getting hurt and being killed.driving....

Be Happy

...full because now I have a chance to finally write my first blog post. I'll share a few tips from my heart on being and staying happy in Jesus. * "Are any among you in trouble? They should pray..." - James 5:13 Pray; my joy begins and ends in God and I can confidently say that the joy of the Lord is truly my strength. You cannot be happy while you insist on carrying your own burdens. The Bible says that we cast our cares on the Lord. Now the way to do this is by prayer. I do not expect to be happy while my God is angry at me. So be it burdens of sin -by the way disobedience to God will snuff the joy out of you cause joy is from the Holy Spirit and He can get grieved by us when we do wrong!-, worry, anxiety, depression, name it! I will lay it at His feet and His cross and take on His yoke. I realized that if I truly want to be happy all the days of my life, then I should seek diligently to be full of all that God is. * ------------------------------------------------- "...Are any among you happy? They should sing praises." ------------------------------------------------- James 5:13 Be grateful; My heart "glows" when I appreciate someone. And it does so when am appreciated as well. Being grateful helps you appreciate and be content with what you have. A sincere thank you to God and people around you will go a long way in helping you stay happy about what you already have. When is the last time you said thank you? Take your time with God today, give thanks sincerely......

...French fries. Make eating healthy appealing to you child by making it fun. Include her in meal preparations. For example give them a chef hat it will give them a sense of purpose and they will want to eat the masterpiece you and your child created. I observed nothing abnormal during my assessment. Communication The parent identified that the child can speak clearly, tell elaborate stories using full sentences with future and past tense words and describe the meaning of words and how they are used. The parent also stated the child can say her name and birthday, but still gets the numbers mixed up on her phone number and address. The parent believes the child has met all communication milestones. My observation matched the parents’ statements. The child engaged in a full conversation with me. She told me all about school and her monster high dolls and also told me what she was going to do at dance the following day. She had no difficulty describing the meaning and usage of words that were age appropriate. As far as screening recommendations, I would tell the parent to get visual and hearing screenings by six years of age. Being able to catch any abnormalities early will help the child progress successfully in learning and communication. I would educate the mother to continue to practice reading and writing and as the child excels in communication express the importance of not just communicating with unfamiliar people especially when the parent isn’t......

...September 2011 (updated January 2012) Effect analysis IFRS 10 Consolidated Financial Statements and IFRS 12 Disclosure of Interests in Other Entities In The IASB’s approach to effect analysis Before we issue new requirements, or make amendments to existing IFRSs, we consider the costs and benefits of what we are proposing. This includes an assessment of both the costs incurred by preparers of financial statements and the costs incurred by users of financial statements when information is not available. We also consider the comparative advantage that preparers have in developing information that users would otherwise have to develop themselves. What is the measurement bar for our assessment? We expect our standards to have economic effects, and we understand that those effects may be beneficial for some entities and detrimental to others. For example, a change in financial reporting requirements might affect the cost of capital for individual entities by changing the absolute or relative level of information asymmetry associated with those entities. We assess these associated costs and benefits by reference to the overall objective of financial reporting. We try to understand how the changes will contribute towards the development of a single set of high quality global accounting standards by improving the allocation of capital. We therefore also consider the benefit of better economic decision-making as a result of improved financial reporting. The boundaries of our......
