  • Leadership Qualities - 567 words
    Leadership Qualities The most meaningful and challenging experiences in my life have been through sports and the 4-H club. They have instilled the values of perseverance, confidence, and teamwork within me. I feel that my peers and others could learn valuable life lessons through participating in these organizations. They are not just clubs, but a guiding light for life. For example in sports I have had the opportunity to play on both losing and winning teams. This has given me a different perspective of looking at things. I now realize that even if you fail or lose that is no reason to give up, you still have to get right back up. Just realize your mistakes and errors. Then come back the ne ...

  • Aenied - 1,486 words
    Aenied Many argue that throughout Aenied, Virgil develops Aeneas to be a boring and unheroic character; always acting as he should with apparently no power to act in any other way. Occasionally sidetracked, Aeneas is prodded and redirected by the gods toward his destiny. Aeneas' mother, Venus, constantly interjects to lead Aeneas toward his fate. It is she who leads him away from the fallen city of Troy " I had twice-ten ships, and my goddess-mother showed me the way."(I, 541-542) Mercury also sets Aeneas straight from his deviating course by telling him to leave his love Dido "What are you pondering or hoping for while squandering your ease in Libyan lands." (IV, 362-363) Mercury criticizes ...

  • Affirmative Action - 863 words
    Affirmative Action The problem of discrimination has been around since the writing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The U.S. Constitution said nothing of equality; instead, it "legitimized the institution of slavery." The Emancipation Proclamation issued January 1, 1863, set slaves in the confederate states free. The Thirteenth Amendment permanently abolished slavery. The former confederate states, not wanting to let go of their control over blacks, established the restrictive "Black Codes." The Civil Rights Act of 1866 proposed by Andrew Johnson was the first Civil Rights act ever written. The act was turned down by congress. The act would have given all blacks the same rights as ...

  • Caesar - 922 words
    Caesar Expository Essay The decisions that one man makes can determine the length of life. Rome has many people that have the characteristics to be great leaders. Antony is a manipulative man, Brutus is an honorable man, and Octavius is a quiet strength. All three men would do an excellent job in leading Rome. Antony is a manipulative man. This is shown throughout the play in several cases, but most prominently at Caesars funeral. I thrice presented him a kingly crown which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition? (III, ii, 96-96). Antony is very cleaver in the way that he presents his case to the people. He uses rhetorical questioning to show the people that Caesar was in fact not ambitious ...

  • Closing Year Of The Civil War - 1,105 words
    Closing Year Of The Civil War The American Civil War was one of the largest in world history. The number of American lives lost in this war had never been heard of, nor has it been. The fighting that took place tore our nation apart and we still feel the effects 135 years later. This war is so widely written about, that it is nearly impossible to write about everything that happened. That is why I will be writing about the closing days of the Civil War. This is an interesting time, because it is all winding down and you see exactly how it ends. The end of the American Civil War was probably one of the most interesting times. The final year in the war started towards the middle of 1864. On Ma ...

    ... unishment was not something I chose to use as part of parenting techniques. Instead I chose to use discipline (on most good parenting days!) Discipline means to teach. It should be a positive way of helping and guiding children to achieve self-control, self-esteem and confidence. Children need discipline for many reasons some of that are protection, to get along with others, and to understand limits. Discipline helps children understand the logical consequences of their actions and learn common rules that everyone must live by. It can help teach a child values that are held by the family and community. "The purpose of discipline, then, is to teach children acceptable behavior so that the ...

    Employee Attitude/Organizational Behavior Introduction A happy worker makes for a good worker you say? Well, United Airlines had somewhat of an all for one employee attitude in July 1994. They announced the purchase of their own company for which they work for $5 billion through ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan).

Stocks have risen 120% due to this buyout (almost three times higher than the airline industry average gain).

  • George Washington - 935 words
    George Washington George Washington's memory is held in honor by his fellow countrymen and by the world. The enemies and critics who attacked him in war and in peace are now largely forgotten, but his name has become a byword for honor, loyalty, and love of country. He was known as the "father of his country". Washington was a "father" in several ways. He was commander in chief of the American forces in the American Revolution, chairman of the convention that wrote the United States Constitution, and the first president of the United States. He led the men who turned America from an English colony into a self-governing nation. Also, he set the standard for future presidents and for the whole ...

  • Han Groups - 687 words
    Han Groups Students are socialized smoothly into Japanese culture by han groups, which are small companies of children that learn and play together. They contribute to the childrens educational growth by letting the students develop the group-oriented skills they will need in their daily adult lives. Han groups are important parts of the Japanese elementary school experience in many ways. Academically, it is the han group that is rewarded for achievement or a correct answer, not the individual student. The reward itself is usually no more than a round of applause from fellow students, but that is a strong validation for the members of that han. When groups give a wrong answer, the teacher do ...

  • In His Novel, Lord Of The Flies, William Golding Uses The Character Of Piggy To Represent Knowledge And Order Piggy Is A Shor - 312 words
    In his novel, Lord of the Flies, William Golding uses the character of Piggy to represent knowledge and order. Piggy is a short, overweight boy who wears glasses. He is afflicted with asthma and doesn't care to do strenuous work on the island. He tries very hard to cling to civilization, and tries his best to keep peace. While probably the smartest boy on the island, he lacks any social skills whatsoever, and has trouble communicating or fitting in with the others. For instance, after Piggy and Ralph converse for a short while and Piggy recognizes Ralph's leadership qualities, Piggy promptly urged, " We can use this (conch) to call the others. Have a meeting. They'll come when they hear us-- ...

    Julius Caeser Gaius Julius Caesar, a patrician and noble, became one of the most powerful men in Ancient Roman history. Caesar was a populare1, and eventually became the people's hero. His leadership qualities gained him the consulship of 59 B.C., and eventually perpetual dictatorship. Caesar's acquired power soon became immense, and soon the ruling class began to fear his power.
