Why am I where I am today? Why business? I came to Saint John University with the intention of getting the best education in order for me to become successful Physician Assistant. At that time, I wanted to be a physician assistant because I wanted to help people. I wanted to save lives and make a lot of money. I thought that was the best way to go about helping people. I didn’t know that there are so many ways of helping the public as well make good money at the same time. Coming St Johns not only helped me realize that, they also gave me many other options when I realized that the physician assistant programs wasn’t for me. I was able to look at different fields and understand my possibilities. I came into Tobin and took Business management as my major. I saw that by being in the medical field not only can I help people I can also hurt them by making mistakes. I love interaction, challenges and meeting new people so I figured that management was better for me. I like networking and building new relationships. I took Management knowing that it involved all the things I enjoy. I wanted people to look up to me as well as feel comfortable and friendly. I wanted to be a leader and be the cause of positive changes. Along with my major I also took advantage of taking a minor at St Johns. My minor is Health Service Administration. I found myself still wanting to be attached to the medical field but this time it is the other end, the business side. I look forward to becoming a Hospital Administrator one day and become involved in both the medical world as well as the business world. I order to be successful hospital administrator. I would need to have experience, knowledge and be opened minded to learning new things. Being aware of technology is also a necessity to any field. Keeping on top of updates is a must. I would also need to have…...

...By first glance at the title Stars, I assumed the story would have something to do with the author’s perception of the constellations during the night. By my growing knowledge of the Holocaust I then remembered the Star of David was very significant in determining Jews from non-Jews. It still baffles me to believe that this symbol, which is worn on chains by people of the Jewish faith today, could be used to discriminate one race from the other and aid in their humiliation and ultimately their death. During the reading, I was hearing the similar story of the suffering and measures taken by Jews while in the concentration camps. However, I discovered a different tone than most other stories. Even though Michael was frightened like the rest, he chose to act in order to save his cousin. His courage and quick thinking skills, which benefited Jews greatly during this period of persecution, not only saved himself but saved another by risking his life in exchange. A memory bubble came to me of the numerous times I stood standing in line at a bar without being of the legal age to drink alcohol. Most occasions I would hand the bouncer my authentic I.D. stating that I was underage and he would mark my hand with an “X” or something similar to show that I wasn’t allowed to drink while in the bar. Thinking on my feet, I learned that sometimes the “X” would come right off if I ran quickly to the bathroom to wash it off. Other times I would put Chap-Stick on the back of my......

The Star Model

...The Star Model (1) The Star Model provides a framework to assess and design organisations which successfully implement strategy. This model helps us to see the way in which all the elements of an organisation need to be aligned to deliver strategy. It is a combination of technical issues like the actual design of structures, processes, procedures and systems; and the social factors such as culture, capabilities, attitudes and values. The Star Model was developed by Jay R Galbraith and the descriptions in this paper are adapted from his book 'Designing Organisations' Strategy Strategy is the company’s formula for ‘winning’. It specifies the short and long term goals and objectives to be achieved as well as the values and mission to be pursued. It sets out the basic direction of the company. The strategy specifically outlines: * The products or services to be provided * The markets to be served * The value to be offered to the customer * The source of competitive advantage * What activities are most necessary (core work processes) It should also allow for experimentation and opportunism. Thus strategy should be shaped as broad framework to guide choices and decisions rather than a fixed set of plans and actions. Strategy should contain within it that which is fixed in terms of the core business and ideology of the organisation and that which is to change in terms of the challenging aspirations which will stimulate progress. It should never be......

...Complete Finance & Accounts Outsourcing Solutions Case study: MIS & Analysis Objective of MIS & Analysis To professionally manage the collection, flow and direction of critical financial information so that management is able to take informed decisions. Timely and accurate information also empowers the Company to be proactive rather than reactive to trends or situations. Company Profile A leading retail food company, pan India presence, 500 employees, turnover INR 180 million. Challenge In the retail food industry, one of the keys to survival and growth is having timely information on food costs and other line items. Our client’s accounts department was not able to put together this critical information in the desired format even after circulating a standard format among outlets. Further, there were many clerical errors and a lack of understanding about the real purpose of the information sent by the company’s outlets. To make matter worse, the information received from outlets was irregular, making it difficult to deliver the MIS on a target date to the company’s management. Solution Not only did the MIS function take up too much of the CFO’s time and energy, in addition, it consumed the efforts of a dedicated professional, a qualified Chartered Accountant. Management recognized that better information was needed to understand where the strategies in terms of Food Costing were not working. BC was approached and contracted to streamline this function. Before this, BC had......

...in about 150 BC He ranked the stars he could see in terms of their brightness, with 1 representing the brightest down to 6 representing the faintest. Modern astronomy has extended this system to stars brighter than Hipparchus' 1st magnitude stars and ones much, much fainter than 6. As it turns out, the eye senses brightness logarithmically, so each increase in 5 magnitudes corresponds to a decrease in brightness by a factor 100. The absolute magnitude is the magnitude the stars would have if viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs or some 32.6 light years. Obviously, Deneb is intrinsically very bright to make this list from its greater distance. Rigel, of nearly the same absolute magnitude, but closer, stands even higher in the list. Note that most of these distances are really nearby, on a cosmic scale, and that they are generally uncertain by at least 20%. All stars are variable to some extent; those which are visibly variable are marked with a "v". What are apparent and absolute magnitudes? Apparent is how bright the appear to us in the sky. The scale is somewhat arbitrary, as explained above, but a magnitude difference of 5 has been set to exactly a factor of 100 in intensity. Absolute magnitudes are how bright a star would appear from some standard distance, arbitrarily set as 10 parsecs or about 32.6 light years. Stars can be as bright as absolute magnitude -8 and as faint as absolute magnitude +16 or fainter. There are thus (a very few) stars more than 100 times brighter......

...Empower Network Turn Over Rate Hi this is Oliver King, I would like to write about the turn over rate in some companies. I have taken the time to  narrow down my study to one company I visited a while back.  This company’s name is MexFabrics. I wrote about it in a report I did in college and I made some points about the company as well as I stated recommendations and solutions for improvement as is stated below. From my case study: MexFabrics is an established manufacturer of fine men’s clothing in Mexico, whose high turnover of skilled staff (mostly women) is threatening product quality and output. The human resource manager is expected to outline a strategy to reduce employee turnover. The case focuses on possible causes of, and strategies to reduce, employee turnover. 1. What are the main reasons that contributed to MexFabrics´ employees to leave their jobs? A: Low literacy skills and lack of responsibility seemed to be a constant characteristic among many manufacturing employees in developing countries.  Coming from poor families, many employees just wanted to survive day-to-day and had no vision of the possibilities that working in the sector could give them, such as skills development and economic stability.  In fact, personal among the workers or social problems within their households were seen as the main reasons for the high turnover, resulting in a shortage of experienced personnel.  Many employees lacked the necessary education to perform the work,......

Management information systems are distinct from regular information systems in that they are used to analyze other information systems applied in operational activities in the organization. Academically, the term is commonly used to refer to the group of information management methods tied to the automation or support of human decision making, e.g. Decision Support Systems, Expert systems, and Executive information systems. MIS should be designed to achieve the following goals: • Enhance communication among employees. • Deliver complex material throughout the institution. • Provide an objective system for recording and aggregating information. • Reduce expenses related to labor-intensive manual activities. • Support the organization's strategic goals and direction. Achieving sound MIS : Management needs to ensure that MIS systems are developed according to a sound methodology that encompasses the following phases: • Appropriate analysis of system alternatives, approval points as the System is developed or......

...Famous Stars in our Galaxy There are about 300 billion different stars in our galaxy. All of which contain different history, characteristics and general information. They each contain their own story of how they came about. Many of these stars are a part of a certain constellation and have been around for billions of years. Polaris is one the best known stars. (“How Do Stars Form,” n.d.) This star is known by many names like the North or Pole Star. Polaris has not always been the North Star and will not always remain the North Star. As centuries change the North Star will also do so. “A famous star called Thuban, in the constellation Draco the Dragon, was the North Star when the Egyptians built the pyramids.” (earthsky) Polaris will remain as the North Star for many more centuries to come. There was a time where people depended on their lives on this star to guide them. Fortunately, they used the North Star and the Big Dipper without getting lost. “. When slavery existed in the United States, slaves counted on the Big Dipper (which they called the Drinking Gourd) to show them the North Star, lighting their way to the free states and Canada.” (earthsky) Polaris is not hard to miss in the sky; it is the 50th brightest star and does not disappear. The reason this star will not disappear is due to the fact that the Earth’s axis is aligned pointing towards Polaris in the same direction North faces but will eventually shift over time. In comparison to the sun, this star is......

...Science of Stars Science of Stars This paper is about the science of the stars.   In this paper I will address how astronomers determine the composition, temperature, speed, and rotation rate of distant objects.   I will briefly explain the properties of stars in the H-R diagram from Chapter 15 of the course textbook “The Cosmic Perspective”.   I will also summarize the lifecycle of the Sun and identify where the Sun is in its lifecycle.   Studying Distant Objects Astronomers study light which comes from distant objects to determine its composition, temperature, speed, and rotation of distant objects.   This process is called spectroscopy.   Spectroscopy was first used to study celestial objects in 1863 by William Higgins.   By using this process he discovered the Sun and most stars are primarily composed of hydrogen gases. By using the spectroscopy technique it was discovered that different objects give off and absorb different spectrums of light. Where the object falls in the spectrum of light can be determined by examining its peak intensity at each wave length of light.   The light helps us to determine an objects composition, temperature, and rotation. There are three types of spectra used to evaluate light.   Objects which absorb light at different wavelengths are referred to as absorption spectrum. The intensity of light drops in objects which absorb light and therefore appear as dark lines on a rainbow of colors.   Objects such are stars, planets with......

...did not make much of an impact on his life. On the other hand, my father has completely changed my life. He has shaped the characteristics of his only child without even realizing it. My dad has taught me that just because he reflects a negative influence upon my life does not mean that I cannot succeed. I have turned his negative choices into lifelong advice. These experiences made me realize that I do not need to walk in his path of destruction or follow in his footsteps—I can create my own. Watching my father drink his life away has truly inspired me to never give up on my dreams and to never lose hope. As the famous American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "When it is dark enough, you can see the stars." Living with my father, I am able to see my stars shine brighter each and everyday. Even though my father has not always been dependable, his actions continue to have an everlasting impact on my life. I now know that I can overcome all of life's obstacles thanks to my father who was put on this earth to make me the best, strongest, and most successful person I can possibly be....

...their socialisation process from their very childhood.This social conditioning becomes part of her person and mindset and influences her behaviour.The empowerment process must begin with women changing their own ways of thinking and behaving .They must try to appreciate themselves more and to recognise and value their knowledge and skills and their contribution of the sustainability of the households and the community. Women then,must wage a multi-prolonged battle at many levels and this battle has necessarily to begin with the women themselves at a personal and individual level .As the empowerment process advances ,men loose their traditional power and control over women and this process must begin within the family.Women setting out to empower themselves must be aware and also prepared for the backlash they might have to face from the men who suddenly find themselves losing their traditional power and control.The road to empowerment is long,lonely and often frightening.In fact ,the struggle is the process of empowerment.In recent decades, while individual women have been waging a very personal struggle ,they have not been alone.Women within communities ,within countries and across the globe have been linking within one another to expand and to sharpen their efforts for their own empowerment.

...In this paper I will explain how astronomers determine the composition, temperature, speed, and rotation rate of distant objects using various methods. I will explain the properties of stars. I will also summarize the complete lifecycle of the Sun and determine where the Sun is currently in its lifecycle.Light is a type of energy. Light behaves like a wave because it acts as a disturbance in the magnetic and electric field of space. Light can behave as a particle, because it sends all its energy to one place. A particle of light is called a photon. Photons can be absorbed into objects, bounce off objects, or fly through space. Scientists use the electromagnetic spectrum to organize and explain all types of electromagnetic energy that exist throughout the universe. Electromagnetic waves are organized in the electromagnetic spectrum according to their wavelength from the shortest, which are known as gamma rays to the longest which are known as radio waves. Electromagnetic energy is created by vibration. The vibration produces waves that carry energy. Each magnetic wave emits a different level of energy. These energies travel silently at the speed of light and produce a signature wave with a unique range of length, energy and frequency that scientists can identify and measure. One way that the energy of an electromagnetic wave is measured is by measuring its frequency. Frequency refers to the number of waves a vibration creates during a period of time. In general, the higher......
