Toshiba | Too Greatness And Beyond! |

It is always one thing to see it on paper than it is to live it in real life. According to the Human metrics Survey I tend to be an Extrovert, Intuitive, and slightly judging. I was pleased to hear about the extrovert and intuitive traits however I don’t like to think of myself as being judgmental. Then VALS survey states that I am more of Experiencer, and an achiever. Lastly the attached survey has me in the 41-50 point brackets. As I answered the questions I felt like a totally different experience like I was making a personal judgment of myself. At first I was concerned I might try to fix my results however I believe that I avoided doing so. The three surveys all sum me up as an interested, outgoing achiever. I see this as a very accurate representation of me. While I am at work I often socialize and make myself the center of attention would lines up with the HR-Survey, I also find myself constantly making slight judgments at people at work, school, and even online. The one piece of information I was most interested in reading was the Achiever that the VALS survey had stated me as. I always thought of myself as the outgoing willing to do anything once type person. Yet seeing the achiever surprises me not because it doesn’t fit me but because it fits me better than all the rest. I have goals in life, starting a family, building a career, making my impact in the world. All of these are goals that every daily decision revolves around. My choice to work full time and take 12 summer credits is all part of my goal to achieve. Mixed with the extrovert I definitely see myself as the person pushing to achieve more and climb ladders and take upon leadership roles. I feel like the above information makes me a much more marketable individual in a…...

City Slick Country Hick

...Scott Cox Mrs. Byrd English 1101-508 March 11, 2013 City Slick Country Hick Raising a family is a difficult thing to do. The city offers wide varieties of advantages to each family member. Many social, personal, and independent skills can be learned and mastered in ways that can only be achieved in an urban environment. Country living allows those skills to be obtained and tested in a somewhat more controlled level. The desired outcome of most parents is usually alike: producing independent, well balanced young adults with the ability to make good decisions and handle the obstacles of life responsibly. The means to achieving that common goal often take separate paths in the different environments of urban and rural living. The hustle and bustle of city life breeds and nurtures many life skills that are very important. From the time one leaves his apartment he is required to make quick decisions and he learns fast that he should be prepared. Leaving in the wrong direction may take quite a bit of time before he can safely change directions and return to the path he should have taken to start with. The sheer volume of traffic requires attention and instills certain safety precautions. Rules of a civil society are learned faster and at a younger age by children in the city than those in the country. The wide variety of offerings in the city makes it an excellent place to do many of the activities involved with a family. The many different shops and stores give family......

Gang Activities in Chicago and It Suburbs

...Gang activities in Chicago and it suburbs. Introduction Deindustrialization brought the new generation of young gangsters. Its number increases every year, all over the country, in cities of different sizes. Are those gangs the product of restructuring economics? Can they be considered a new social minority? What policy should the community use to control this problem? I decided to write my research paper about the gang activities during the deindustrialization because I think it is very important for political scientist to research how economical and political changes may impact the society and public policy. In my work I answer such questions as what challenges the urban administration experiences during the globalization and how to respond to them. This topic has its actuality today because gangs are becoming a new social “underclass”. (Taylor, 1990, p. 81) What does it mean? With the end of industrialization era a lot of job opportunities disappeared for a new generation of youth. Moreover, gang bands usually act as well-armed economic groups. As the result, many young males were involved in street gang activities such as drug dealing and other criminals. Once those young ones fall in criminal they stay involved in gang activities even when they become adult. (Hagedorn, 1991, p.529) It is remarkable to notice that Mass Media also had its role in growing new population of gangs. The Hollywood industry usually shows images of rich, famous......

Megacities or Suburbs?

...Hayes II Geog 413 Midterm November 10, 2013 Megacities or Suburbs? Urbanization and growth rely on each other like cause and effect. However; when one asks does urbanization trigger economic growth and development, or is economic growth and development the result of urbanization is like asking which came first the chicken or the egg? Urbanization and growth rely on each other, however; does there come a point in which the diseconomies start to outweigh the benefits of agglomeration? Annez and Buckley state in Urbanization and Growth: Setting the Context that “Urbanization is necessary to sustain growth in developing countries.” Annez and Buckley point out that urbanization affects the growth process through the enhanced flow of ideas and knowledge attributable to agglomeration in cities. They drew in evidence from Landes (1969 cited in Willamson 1987, p. 6) whom believes “Urbanization is an essential ingredient in modernization”. (Anez & Buckley p. 1 & 2) Industrialization is triggered by urbanization which leads to modernization. Modernization leads to economic development which allows people to use current technology. Part of the modernization process is education and creation of a centralized bureaucracy. These creations enable their people to advance and compete in the modern world. All these concepts are related and rely on each other. Annez and Buckley show in several graphs as countries become urbanized their GDP rises. In almost every......

My Little Bit of Country

...place we feel more at home. Some feel they belong to the country while others feel they belong to the city. Others might go to the extreme and move to a different country to feel at home. But what do you do if you are still a child and your parents are taking you away from the place where you belong? This is the problem Susan Cheever dealt with when she was a child and her parents moved from Central Park to the countryside. Susan Cheever is an American writer. She was born in 1943. Her father is a famous novelist and short story writer, John Cheever. Susan Cheever writes her memories in the anthology Central Park which is published in 2012. The first three to four years of her life (p. 7, l. 28) she was raised in the area around Central Park. She loved it. She loved everything about the place and was completely uncomprehending when her parents decided to move to Westchester on the Hudson River (p. 8, l. 23-24). Her parents wanted to get away from their two-bedroom apartment, the noisy traffic and they wanted to get a bigger family and a family car (s. 8, l. 71-76). She did not like it in the suburbs. She wanted to move back to Central Park. When Susan got old enough to be allowed to take the train alone, she travelled to New York as often as she could. “Later in my life I heard Any Warhol say that it was better to live in the city than the country because in the city he could find a little bit of country, but in the country the was no little bit of city” (p. 9, l.......

...THE IMPACT OF COUNTRY ATTRIBUTES ON STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM AND TOURISM DESTINATION PURCHASING DECISIONS ABSTRACT Place branding has become a very competitive arena.

My Little Bit of Country

...little bit of country’, is an essay which is part of the anthology ‘Central Park’. The essay tells the story of the essayist Susan Cheevers herself, and informs us of her opinion of the city, versus the country. The essay takes us from Susans childhood, all the way through to herself having kids. Susan illustrates in several ways the difference between living in the suburbs, and living in the big city. It is safe to say that Susan has become accustomed to the lifestyle of the big city, which in return has made her discontent when it comes to the more primitive life of the suburbs. The way that Susan Cheever chooses to tell her story, is done through a series of metaphors and adjectives. The result of this is that the reader is drawn into Cheevers' dynamic writing, which helps to make the essay more interesting to read. An example of this can be seen on page 10, at line 278-283, where she says: “One night the surface of the water heaved and buckled, and a turtle as big as a small car, a mossy prehistoric apparition in the middle of the city, inhaled the biggest chunk…” Every aspect of the story is described in detail, so that every object and person in the story, seems almost real enough to smell and taste. As we’re told in the essay, Susan has both lived in the big city of New York, where she lived at Central Park, as well as lived in the suburbs. Because Susan may be a person who is scared of changes, this makes it difficult for her to accept a life in the suburbs, when......
