...those words. I know that I did not imagine what I heard. There are spirits here at my house that walk around the master bedroom constantly at night. The sounds actually sound like footsteps. I believe there are souls living here on earth after death. I call them angels. I do believe in heaven and hell. I think that a soul lives outside of their bodies because their bodies are not yet dead, and we are still functioning. When you go to bed at night and you dream that you are with a loved one that had passed on some time ago. I am a believer that the spirit is actually visiting with this person just as if you were visiting a friend in the neighborhood. It is the soul that is actually visiting each other. I have a video with three orbs flying around. I know someone was here. Animals can sense things and they were going crazy. I do believe in the afterlife and spirits. For example, I had a dream of my mother who passed away four years ago. I was in a train station waiting for a train, so I thought. When I walked into the train station, I saw my mother sitting in front of the train station. I was approached by her friends who were also deceased. They were telling me that my mom was waiting to see me. I was excited to see her and I had to run to the ladies room, I told her friends that I would return to see my mother when I came out of the ladies room. I came out of the ladies room and my mother was gone. I started to cry and woke up. I believe this was a......

Unit Three Assignment – Report of Amazon.Com Scm System to Rf Executives

...Unit Three Assignment – Report of Amazon.Com SCM system to RF Executives Robert M. Bolden, Sr. IT500: Critical Concepts and Competencies for the IT Professional Dr. Dawn Giannoni Kaplan University In this report, we will discuss the idea of a possible implementation of a supply chain management (SCM) system for the Rainforest Company. In this report, we’ll identify what SCM is, the difference it makes between real-time processing versus analytical processing. Then we will identify the benefits it will bring to the Rainforest Company and how to get an edge in the competitive global market. In order to understand SCM, we must first describe what it actually is. Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a system that includes planning, executing and controlling all activities involved in raw material sourcing and procurement, converting raw materials to finished products, and warehousing and delivering finished products to customers. (Stair and Reynolds, 2012, p. 389). In other words, it is a system that bridges the gap between the manufacturer and the consumer by supplying goods and services without the intervention of a retailer such as a department or grocery store. In an attempt to put this in perspective, we looked into the activity of Amazon.Com and how their process works from the supplier to finally reaching the consumer. When looking into the supply chain structure and strategies of’s website, we discovered that their methodology is much similar to most......

...Philosophy Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Discussed in this paper will be the most prominent individuals in each time period and their ideas, starting with the “Pre-Socratic” philosophers and ending in the era of post modernism. The time period in ancient Greece between the end of the seventh century B.C. and the middle of the fourth century B.C. is what is known as the “Pre-Socratic Era”. The thinkers known as the “Pre-Socratic Philosophers” used the four basic elements (water, earth, fire, and air) as their foundations for their ideas. Thales and most of the other Pre-Socratic philosophers limited themselves mostly to inquiring the nature of existence, being, and the world. They were mostly Materialists, believing that all things are composed of material and nothing else, and were mainly concerned with trying to establish the single underlying substance of which the world is made up. They used this idea of “Monism” without resorting to supernatural or mythological explanations. To these men even the commonest of phenomena like lightning, water freezing to ice, and natural disasters would have appeared miraculous. Empedocles, first of the pluralists, who proposed that reality, is composed of an irreducible plurality of elements. He also documented the first theory of evolution. Democritus developed the extremely influential idea of Atomism (that all of reality is......

...Philosophy Similarities Sue A. Reed Grantham University Dr. W. Edwards Deming had a Ph.D. in physics and was trained as a statistician (Evans & Lindsay, 2014). At the end of WW II, Deming worked for the U.S. government and traveled to Japan to help rebuild their economy with his unique style of management (W. Edwards Deming Institute, 2012). The Deming philosophy never defined or described quality precisely. His philosophy focused on continuous improvements in product and service quality by reducing uncertainty and variability in design, manufacturing, and service processes, driven by the leadership of top management (Evans & Lindsay, 2014). Deming also believed that higher quality would lead to higher productivity and would then strengthen competitiveness. Joseph Juran spent most of his time as a corporate industrial engineer and did most of the writing, editing, and publishing of the Quality Control Handbook (Evans & Lindsay, 2014). Like Deming, he taught quality principles to the Japanese and was a principal force in their quality reorganization (Evans & Lindsay, 2014). Juran developed basic steps that companies must take, however he believed there was a point of diminishing return; a point at which quality goes beyond the consumer needs (Reference for Business). This process is called the Pareto Principle, or the Juran 80/20 rule: 80 percent of the trouble comes from 20 percent of the problems......

...FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OYE-EKITI, EKITI STATE, NIGERIA. A TERM PAPER TITLE:- “THE ESSENCE/SUBSTANCE OF MAN” BY FACULTY: SCIENCE DEPARTMENT: MICROBIOLOGY COURSE TITLE: PHILOSOPHY AND LOGIC COURSE CODE: GST 205 CONTENT * Introduction * What is man * Philosophically * Scientifically * The essence and substance of man * What constitute man * Man as a dualist * Man as a monad * Man as a socialist * Man as a spiritual entity * Man as a physical entity * Intrinsic characteristics that man have in common * Illustration of the mental essence(when man is abnormal is he still half or full) INTRODUCTION The essence of man is the constituent of man which goes beyond his body alone but extends to his mind, soul, spirit and other attributes of man. But we cannot talk about the essence of man without the existence of man because without an existence of man, man’s essence is of no use and nothing to talk about. This brings about the proposition ‘existence precedes essence’. The proposition that existence precedes essence is a central claim of existentialism, which reverses the traditional philosophical view that the essence (the nature) of a thing is more fundamental and immutable than its existence (the mere fact of its being). To existentialists, human beings—through their consciousness—create their own values and determine a meaning for their life because the human being does not possess any inherent identity or value. By posing the acts that......

This paper will examine, evaluate and propose a revamping of the operations systems for the company. We will begin by performing a process analysis and strategy and evaluate the performance of the current system that is in place. This will be the starting point for which the rest of the analysis and proposal will be based upon. This paper will cover the cost of production, economies of scale, and costs of materials, speed, and technology and will conduct a cost analysis for the current production. The purpose is to determine how to make the company more productive and competitive and enable positive work flow through realigning the design of the manufacturing processes. The company is operating on twelve acres of land that are landlocked. This indicates that there are only two ways for shipping and receiving-railway and truck. The company currently has all of its operations in the same building however since expanding to include the two different designs it must shut down for thirty six hours each time it must produce a different design. This results in lost time and profits. This paper will examine the cost of the shutdown, inefficiencies in the design of the building and devise a strategy that will increase productivity and efficiency and decrease down......
