My name is Terry , I am a single mother to an amazing 4 year old. I have been a student at Capella for an entire year, however, I took off the last 6 week course in order to go on a mission trip with my church. I currently work for a PBM (pharmacy benefit manager) as a pharmacy technician for the clinical review department. I am a licensed alcohol and drug counselor, however, I do not currently practice in a professional environment. I am working on my MBA with health care management because I feel that along with my pharmacy background and chemical dependency background that there will be opportunities to merge the two together in light of healthcare reform.
My goal for this class is to explore more in the area of healthcare policies and decision making, as I see this to be a very prominent issue in our society.
I am apprehensive about this class, as with all my classes, due to the time needed to do a good job. My job is very demanding, with us working anywhere from 50 to 60 hours a week. My son will be starting pre-school on September 5 which will bring a new set of demands and time issues to my life. I love challenges and I love learning, so when the two collide, I find that I am able to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
I look forward to learning from each of you during the next six…...

...Beren Robinson Field Study Paper Ryan Miller BIO/315 Michelle Gray 1/30/13 Beren Robinson Field Study Paper In the field study of Beren Robinson there where many important aspects of the tests performed, including how species adapt and morph during certain environmental situations. One of the main aspects was taking the species out of its natural habitat to see how they perform under specific environmental changes. In this particular study these included location change, water depth and also food type. The study also showed relation to ecology and evolution because the relationship between the species and the environment was tested to discover possible evolution along with the two being heritable. As far as evolution it displayed original characteristics along with evolved ones of the similar species once switched into a different setting. Some of the original observations found by researchers included samples from the open-water habitat differed morphologically from those species sampled from the shallower near shore waters. The question of study would have been does the constraints of the different environments pose threat or is responsible to the evolution of the species. While “Robinson hypothesized that these individuals represented distinct phenotypes that are products of natural selection promoting divergence within the population” (Robinson, 2000).

Jackie Robinson

...Professor Jacobsen 5/7/13 When trying to decide on what book I wanted to do for this biographical book report I decided to do something that interests me and that is sports. I wanted to come up with someone who made an impact on not only the sports world, but the entire world. Jackie Robinson is considered a hero to me and that is why I chose him. Opening Day: The Story of Jackie Robinson’s First Season by Jonathan Eig tells us all about Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball. This book was published on April 17, 2007 by Tantor Media. On April 15, 1947 Jackie Robinson took the field wearing Brooklyn Dodger’s Jersey. He was the first African American to join a MLB team and he did it with pride. Jackie Robinson created so many oppurtunites for so many different people. It took alot of strength and courage to become the first African American athlete to compete in Major League Baseball. He knew it wasn’t going to be easy but he was willing to go through whatever he needed to in order to set a standard for future generations to come. I did learn some different characteristics about Jackie from this book that I never new about before. It tells all about how Jackie Robinson had an anger problem and played baseball very aggressively. He was going to have to change his ways if he wanted to protect his safe in this new league. The current players would not take it very nicely if he continued to play that way. I also learned that he didn’t always......

Jackie Robinson

...Jackie Robinson, Why Him? The story of Jackie Robinson has become one of America's most iconic and inspiring stories. Since 1947, American history has portrayed Jackie Robinson as a hero, and he has been idolized as a role model to the African American baseball community. It is an unarguable fact that he was the first to tear down the color barriers within professional baseball. The topic of Robinson’s role in integration has long been a point of discussion amongst baseball historians. Researchers have accumulated thousands of accredited documents and interviews with friends and team mates such as short stop, Pee Wee Reese, and team owner, Branch Rickey. However, few journalists have asked why Robinson was selected and what was Branch Rickey’s motivation? While Robinson was the first Negro player to break into the ranks of professional baseball, it can be argued that he was not the first to attempt the undertaking. In actuality, Jackie possibly was not even the first player the Brooklyn Dodgers’ organization considered for the job. The Warner Brothers film, 42, The Jackie Robinson Story (2013), highlights the accomplishments of Jackie and rightfully so, as he was an amazing man. The story actually starts prior to 1947 and ends years later in 1959, three years after his retirement in 1956. Early in his career at Ohio Wesleyan University, where Branch Rickey played and coached baseball, an incident occurred with one of his young black players, Charlie Thomas,......

Robinson Case Analysis

...Contract Introduction and Classification of Law: This article involves contract law- primarily the breach of contract and the punitive damages associated with it. In early 1984 Robinson helicopter Inc contracted Dana parts to purchase sprag clutches for the helicopters that robinson manufactures with a specified design and hardness. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved design specification for Robinson’s helicopters required sprag clutches of a level of hardness described as “50/55 Rockwell.” Dana initially supplied parts for Robinson that complied with the design specifications. But after 12 years of continuous supply, between July 1996 and October 1997 Dana Corp manufactured and delivered clutches with a higher level of hardness namely “61/63 Rockwell” [ (Robinson Helicopter Company, INC., V. Dana Corporation, 2004) ]. During this period Dana corp did not notify Robinson corp about the changes in design specification and did not obtain the necessary certifications. During the 15-month period, Dana continued to deliver its sprag clutches to Robinson and provided a written certificate of compliance with contract specifications with each shipment. The 61/63 Rockwell sprag clutches with a higher level of hardness suffered a higher level of failure compared to the conforming parts (50/55 Rockwell) [ (Robinson Helicopter Company, INC., V. Dana Corporation, 2004) ]. Moreover Dana did not inform about the change in parts until three months after Robinson......

Uncle Terry

...Uncle Terry Paula Hebb ENG121 Jennifer Miller May 4, 2015 Uncle Terry When my mom died, I wasn't aware that she had siblings. The only person I had met in my mother's family was my grandmother. After my mom's funeral, we lost touch, and I didn't give her any more thought. That was until I read my mom's obituary in May 2014. The obituary said that my mom was survived by a brother, whose name was Terry Cartwright. I thought it might be a long shot, and I didn't have anything to loose, so I decided to search for him. I went online, and there were several Terry Cartwright's listed in Ohio. I knew that I would be traveling to Michigan soon, so I decided to make a side trip to visit my mom's grave in Ohio and find a little piece of my mom and her extended family. I was ecstatic to have this connection to my mom. I traveled to Michigan to visit my cousin Deb. I stayed with her for a couple of days and then I left to go to Warren, Ohio. My mom is buried there, and I thought maybe the burial records would give me an address to my grandmother if she were still alive. I arrived in Warren, and since it was so late I checked into my hotel, then decided to wait until morning to go to the cemetery. I woke up excited the next day because I was one step closer to meeting my uncle. I showered, dressed and left to the cemetery. When I stopped by the office and spoke with the office manager. I asked her if there was a way to find out who was responsible for my mother's grave site.......

...Introduction to Ethics and International Law Introduction | Business Ethics | Social Responsibility | Ethical Dilemma Resolution Models | Video – Business Ethics: An Oxymoron? | Practice Quiz | | Introduction | | The E in Enron definitely did not stand for ethics, but Enron and its contemporaries like Arthur Andersen, Tyco, and WorldCom altered the lives of thousands of people and shaped new laws regulating business. All topics covered in this course, from product liability to civil rights, from intellectual property rights to antitrust and consumer protection, will all make the same point. My goal is not to instruct a basic business law course but rather to create a dialogue involving questions and issues that each of our respective businesses must navigate successfully if they are ultimately to maximize stakeholder value. We will do this during Week 1 by covering our two most important TCOs: A and I. These will be foundational for the term. As TCO A is our ethics TCO and TCO I is our international TCO, note that both of these TCOs will be important under and inside each of our topical TCOs (e.g., contracts, environmental law, employment law, etc.) | | Business Ethics | | As we move through the course, each learned TCO should remain in the back of your mind. We will build on them while learning the law. As you will find, most of the TCO A ethical strategies include as a first question the following: Is the behavior illegal? A "yes" answer will......

Robinsons Thesis a very well written piece on the character that is Donald Trump and the spectacle that is his campaign. In his article, Robinson explains why the Democratic Party should take Donald Trump seriously in his bid for president and not think of him as an easily defeated opponent. Robinson goes on to explain why Trump is having such success and what makes him appealing to voters. Robinson’s thesis statement is that the democrats should take Trump seriously and realize that a lot of Americans are supporting him because they are fed up with how our political system is currently formatted. That strong and passionate following can take him far in this election, maybe farther than the Democrats think. In Robinson’s article “Don’t Count on Trump Losing in November”, he defends his thesis very well by offering support and explanations of Trump’s success. It is also clear that this article is not an informative one, but a persuasive one. This article was a great example of a persuasive piece. Robinson is not trying to get us to either vote for nor against Trump, but rather warn us against taking him lightly. He lists some of Trump’s campaign promises and explains, “Many are inconsistent with traditional American values…” He goes on to say that, because of his stern nature and tough love approach, he “strikes a cord” with many lower class, white Americans. Robinson insinuates that the Democratic Party should view Trump’s large following as a threat. He makes the point that the GOP......

Jackie Robinson

...exemplified my definition of courage was Jackie Robinson. Jackie Robinson’s story of courage began before becoming the first African-American player to break the color barrier to play on a major league baseball team. Through 1942 and 1944, he served as a second lieutenant in the United States Army. At the end of his military career, Robinson was arrested and court-martialed after he refused to seat in the back of a segregated bus during training. His courage against segregation was a precursor to the impact he would have in major league baseball (Jackie, 2011). Jackie Robinson showed that same courage when he began his career in baseball. In 1947, Robinson debuted in his first major league baseball with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Many of his own teammates ignored him and did not want to play with a black man. Some of them threatened to sit out rather than play alongside him. Newspaper writers wrote very racist reports about him during his initial years in baseball (Otake, n.d.). Jackie Robinson throughout his career received hate letters, and some even threatened him personally and his family. Even after being excluded, harassed, and have his life threatened based on the color of his skin, he continued to defy them and play the game. Jackie Robinson successfully played in 6 consecutive All-Star games, winning the 1947 MLB Rookie of the year and winning the 1949 National League Most valuable Player (Otake, n.d.). In 1962, Jackie Robinson was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame......
