My recurring problem has got to be financial income. I have never been good at handling my bills and savings properly one minute I have extra cash the next minute its gone, spent on some great night out with my fiancé or blown on musical equipment.
This problem has impacted my life in a severe manner, I can’t go on vacations, get myself out of emergency situations, or upgrade my life due to unsaved money. I have always treated this problem like it wasn’t a problem and that I will recover my losses next week, next paycheck I’ll get myself out of this mess I’d always say. By not seeing that it is a problem it has really caused more of a problem than the problem itself. All I need to do is save money from my check each week and not spend it and yet as I know this to be true I still cannot bring myself to behave the way I should when it comes to saving money. Though I have had some great times dropping my hard earned cash on an all night long party downtown in our fun filled city. I know in my gut that it’s the regular adult that is prepared for emergencies or spontaneous vacations. I have always been a smart person which is why I don’t understand why I can’t tackle this one issue in my life. If could get a handle on my immature capabilities to spend my money on debaucherous nights and learn to save my money I know deep down in my heart I would be a happier person. If only not for me but for my family that comes after me. I want to be able to give something to my unborn children one day and I know that if I can’t learn to save some of my money then I will never have anything to offer them as a financial backbone and keep them from ever having to sweat and deal with callous hands as I have had to do. In conclusion, I have a hard time saving my hard earned money and I would love to learn how to do this a great deal. I know that it…...

Resolving a Real Problem of Motivation

...or intelligent, but simply because she has not invested in further development of her abilities and skills, gaining additional qualification, taking new responsibilities, etc. Roberta experiences a kind of failure in her personal life and the unrealized advantages of opportunities for carrier growth. Probably she does not feel valued for her contribution (among all these qualified and ambitions young people). II. Roberta and the motivational issue Roberta appreciates the security of the work and the salary she gets. Through the work she satisfies her physiological needs, security needs, social needs, needs for existence. Roberta knows how to perform correctly, the process is good, and all resources are available, but there still is a problem with her motivation. There is no attempt by her side to maximize her performance and hence the performance of the department team. Roberta’s lack of motivation is inherent rather to her personality than to the position, and is caused by a number of internal (poor self-confidence; low self-esteem) and external reasons (not challenging or fulfilling work; insufficient positive feedback from the manager and from the colleagues). She does not feel valued for her contribution. There are many cases when she feels incapable and unworthy at work. She suffers a lack of purpose and long-range goals at work. Without goals, it is impossible to be motivated. Motivation requires you know where you are heading. She does her daily routine job and......

Answer: The first characteristic is Relevance. The information that a person uses must be relevant to the current problem at hand. If the information is not relevant it would not help to solve the problem at all. The 2nd characteristic is Complete. The information must be complete. If the information is not complete and only partial information is received, it may lead to wrong decisions being made as only half of an entirety of the information is known. The 3rd characteristic is Accuracy. The information must be accurate as unaccurate information would lead to many different major problems as unaccurate information for example, may lead to people playing the stock market to lose alot of money. The 4th characteristic is Current. The information must be current as a fact of yesterday may not be a fact of today. For example, a criminal on the loose the day before would not be a criminal on the loose anymore if he gets caught today. As the stock market is everchanging, current information is really a must. The 5th characteristic is Economical. The information used must be of......

Solving Real -Life Problem

...John Grant Unit 1 Exercise 1: Solving a Real Life Problem Computer Network Systems Security Problems Observation/Question The problem within my area of study, Computer Network Systems, is maintaining network security. The explosion of the internet and electronic market has made it a challenged to maintain secure systems from malicious intrusion from external or internal customers. It’s not sufficient to periodically change passwords to maintain the company’s network security. The fact is that passwords, as a security technology, are reaching the end of their useful life. Lets look at 3 areas of network security challenges and utilized the scientific method to evaluate. Regularity/Theory State-sponsored espionage and sabotage of computer networks- The current security technologies are not effective at preventing sophisticated, targeted attacks from being successful. The loss of visibility and control created by the ‘cloud’- As workloads move into the ‘cloud’, organizations lose control over individuals who can access the computer systems that those workloads are running on; also lose visibility into what, when and where the resources were accessed. The providers of cloud services and technology conveys the messages of not to worry, but seasoned IT security professionals know better. The password issues- Attackers are constantly scanning the Internet for exposed, password-protected services like Secure Shell (SSH) and Remote Desktop......

...HFT is a natural evolution of the securities markets instead of a completely new phenomenon. There is a clear evolutionary process in the adoption of new technologies triggered by competition, innovation and regulation. Like all other technologies, algorithmic trading (AT) and HFT enable sophisticated market participants to achieve legitimate rewards on their investments – especially in technology – and compensation for their market, counterparty and operational risk exposures. A lot of problems related to HFT are rooted in the U.S. market structure. The flash crash and the discussions on flash orders relate to the U.S. equity markets and the NMS. In Europe, where a more flexible best execution regime is implemented and a share-by-share volatility safeguard regime has been in place for two decades, no market quality problems related to HFT have been documented so far. Therefore, a European approach to the subject matter is required and Europe should be cautious in addressing and fixing a problem that exists in a different market structure thereby creating risks for market efficiency and market quality. 1 The majority of HFT based strategies contributes to market liquidity (market making strategies) or to price discovery and market efficiency (arbitrage strategies). Preventing these strategies by inadequate regulation or by impairing underlying business models through excessive burdens may trigger counterproductive and unforeseen effects to market quality. However, any......

Identifying Decision Traps

...ASSESSMENT 2B: Identifying Decision Traps Decision Making Exercise 2 Introduction We all remember the hot summer(winter in Australia) when we heard the news that Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy during the terrible ‘sub-prime meltdown’(Investopedia 2009). As a giant among investment banks with a history over 150 years,Lehman Brothers suddenly collapsed in few months. How did Lehman Brothers go bankrupt? Why did it happen? Are there any methods that could have been used to avoid the doomsday? These questions will be discussed below. Case study overview In early 2007, with the stock reached $86.18(Investopedia 2009), Lehman Brothers seemed to have done a great job. Therefore ,the company underestimated the risks posed by rising ‘home delinquencies’(Terry 2008) and overestimated the risk-enduring capacity of the US housing market. One real estate investment broker described Lehman as ‘the real estate A.T.M(Terry 2008).Then Lehman’s share price went into a tailspin when the dark days came in August 2007. Dramatically, at the end of 2007, Lehman’s share price rebounded, as ‘global equity markets reached new highs and prices for fixed-income assets staged a temporary rebound’(Terry 2008).However, Lehman failed to seize the chance to ‘trim its massive mortgage portfolio’(Investopedia 2009). According to the Investpedia (2009), the news was a deathblow to Lehman, leading to a 45% plunge in the stock and a 66% spike incredit-default swaps on the company's debt.......

Identifying the Real Problem

...Identifying the Real Problem For the type of work that I do, I face different problems every day. Working with bicycles provides many different problems that are not always the same. So using the same approach does not always work, even though there may be similar symptoms. There was a bicycle that I had to deal with that was not shifting properly in the rear shifter. My initial thought was that the derailleur itself was out of position. Having defined the problem, I implemented several solutions that help to solve this problem. Having spent almost a half hour trying to fix the problem, I realized that I was not making any progress. At that point, I implemented another possible solution and completely replaced the rear derailleur, which took another half hour. I took another half hour and still had not solved the problem. So, I just spent an hour and a half making no progress at all and actually kind of taking a step back by pushing the derailleur out of position. I then got a hold of another Bicycle Technician in the area and was able to redefine the problem correctly. I ended up checking the chain and found that it had stretched, making it impossible to properly set the derailleur in a position of no jumping in the chain. This solution took less than a minute to solve the problem, compared to taking over an hour to fail at correcting a failed problem. This has helped me immensely in my life because now I know that I need to take multiple approaches to......

Identifying the Real Problem

...Identifying the Real Problem Each and every day we encounter problems that we have to solve. In the midst of these problems we find growth and understanding. Problems, in fact, are never new. Simply, they are all variations of the problems that we all share – not feeling good enough or worthy of something or someone, an inability to trust, and fear of abandonment or separation. All of these problems we struggle with at different levels, however, the themes are always the same: finding a sense of purpose, peace of mind, and love. All of these problems can be resolved in one way – the relationships we make in life. The most important of these relationships would be the one with our self. Life and emotional problems don’t seem to exist without relationships being involved; a sense of right or wrong, with or without, good or bad, and the dysfunctional relationships that we have with these allow us to see what is dysfunctional with even ourselves and help us find ways to improve on them. Once you see the problem and catch the repeating theme, you can look at similar experiences and determine what relationship needs to be improved, and watch as these problems begin to spiral in repetition and funnel down the drain, until one day they’re gone. We learn something when we make the same mistakes. Something in us grows stronger than it was the last time. We develop a deeper understanding and are more prepared for all the problems that the future holds. We’re all on the same......

...The Purpose and Functions of an Operating System There are three operating systems, MAC OS, Linux, and Windows. The most common one is windows but what is the difference between the three of them. Linux was written by Linus Torvalds and that is how it got its name. It is an ever expanding operating group and it’s estimated that 1-2% of the US population even use Linux for computers. It was originally designed to be used for PCs, game consoles, DVRs, and other devices. Linux has a bigger market for servers and other computer devices that their percentage is growing. Linux can also be downloaded for free by anybody and there have been companies that have emerged by developing this free download into their own version, which are referred to as distributions. Some examples of these distributions include Ubuntu, and Knoppix. Even though Linux is free to download, it is licensed under a General Public License or GPL. It states that derived works can only be distributed under the same license terms as the software itself. Users have the option of using one of a few GUIs that are similar to the Mac OS GUI. The two most popular GUI environments are GNOME and KDE. GNOME stands for GNU Network Object Model Environment. A graphical user interface that runs on top of the Linux operating system, it consists solely of free and open source software. Mac OS is the proprietary operating system used by Apple for their Macintosh computers. This has been a favorite of multimedia designers,......

The specific focus is upon Generation ‘X’ and the Millennium Generation which are the two primary groups comprising the new workforce. INTRODUCTION The generation that a person is born within has some impact upon that individual in terms of work styles, work values and self-image. The demographic profile of the workforce is undergoing quite a change insofar as the representation of generations and the result is that organizations are experiencing a necessity to make changes as well. The workforce will become increasingly more diverse in the future and this greatly affects the organization in its capacity of hiring and retaining employees. The literature reviewed within this study illustrates the fact that the expectations of employees differ within the......

Gs1140 Identifying the Real Problem

...Identifying The Real Problem Think of a recurring problem or situation in your life that you would like to resolve or manage better. Try viewing it as an ill-defined problem and redefine it. In addition, explain how incorrectly defining the problem has impacted your life and the benefits that you will derive by redefining the problem. A recurring problem I have had in my life for a long time now is not having enough money. From the time I was in 9th grade I have always had some kind of job whether it be part-time or full-time work. At times I even put of going to school on some days or doing homework assignments to go work extra hours to make money. By doing this I never ended up pursuing a better education and settled for working any job I could find. Even with working all the time and at times working multiple jobs I always seemed to find myself broke and barely being able to pay my normal bills to this day. Every job seemed to be a quick solution to get by but never make serious money that could help me in the long run. A solution to this problem that I am currently working on is getting a degree at ITT Tech to further my education. For years I’ve been putting off school because I don’t want to lose out on hours for work to make money and by doing this it has only been hurting me in the long run by keeping better career opportunities away from me. By going to ITT Tech I can still work a 40 hour work week and manage a schedule at school so that in less than 2 years I......

Identifying a Researchable Problem

...Identifying a Researchable Problem Marilynn Kirk Walden University NURS 6052N, Section 22, Essentials of Evidence-Based Practice December, 2015 Identifying a Researchable Problem: PICOT Question Researchers identify a research problem based on a topic of interest. The problem is then researched to solve it. In nursing practice research problems is the basis for evidence-based practice (EBP). “Evidence obtained from the study should have potential to contribute meaningfully to nursing practice” (Polit& Beck, 2012, p77). The purpose of this paper is to summarize an area of interest, identify a problem, and explain the significance of this problem for nursing practice. Area of Interest and Identification of Problem “Key criteria in assessing a research problem are that the problem should be clinically significant; researchable; feasible; and of personal interest” (Polit& Beck, 2012, p 92). The area of interest I chose was the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). The PACU is a specialty area that recovers post-anesthesia patients. The patients in the PACU have received some form of anesthetic agent and require close monitoring. Close monitoring is......

Identifying Fallacies

...CheckPoint: Identifying Fallacies 2. Letter to the editor: “Andrea Keene’s selective morality is once again showing through in her July 15 letter. This time she expresses her abhorrence of abortion. But how we see only what we choose to see! I wonder if any of the anti-abortionists have considered the widespread use of fertility drugs as the moral equivalent of abortion, and, if they have, why they haven’t come out against them, too. The use of these drugs frequently results in multiple births, which leads to the death of one of the infants, often after an agonizing struggle for survival. According to the rules of the pro-lifers, isn’t this murder?” — North-State Record This falls into the class of Straw Man. She is exaggerating her rebuttal. It is true that someone who uses fertility drugs can have that side effect and that it is common, it is uncommon to that the babies will have to fight to survive. 3. In one of her columns, Abigail Van Buren printed the letter of “I’d rather be a widow.” The letter writer, a divorcée, complained about widows who said they had a hard time coping. Far better, she wrote, to be a widow than to be a divorcée, who are all “rejects” who have been “publicly dumped” and are avoided “like they have leprosy.” Abby recognized the pseudo reasoning for what it was, though she did not call it by our name. What is our name for it? This is an example of False Dilemma. She is stating that simply because the widows weren’t......

Identifying Value Creators

...FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT CASE REPORT 2 IDENTIFYING VALUE CREATORS Denis Vassilyev 201105020 Temple Uwalaka 201105018 04/16/2012 OVERVIEW In the given case we are supposed to prepare a comparative financial performance analysis for companies within different industries and different geographical regions in terms of value creation. From a financial perspective, value is said to be created when a business earns a return on capital that exceeds the cost of capital. For that analysis we are offered to use several methods which could show controversial indicators. In that case will try to identify which method is more effective and fair in circumstances described in the case. There are fourteen companies, two for each industry to analyze. ANALYSIS BY INDUSTRY In this section, we will take a peep in the value creation of companies within an industry and see how they are faring. COMPUTER HARDWARE-PERSONAL COMPUTERS INDUSTRY in the computer industry, Apple and Acer were the two companies that were given. One important thing here is that apple is an American Company whereas, Acer is a Taiwanese company. It is like Asian versus America. Looking at their data and financial analysis, it is obvious that Apple is a growing company that holds lots of promise in the future, while Acer is a mature company that is losing its grip on the market. Between 1996 and 1997, Apple posted a net loss but improved on that from 1998 to 2000. Within this period, Acer posted profits......

Wind Power, the Real Answer to Our Engery Problem?

...WIND POWER, THE REAL ANSWER TO OUR ENGERY PROBLEM? I believe that while the benefits are great the power companies and big businesses who produce fossil fuel energy will not allow us to replace it with wind or other total green forms of energy. It is said that electricity made from wind power can help to save our planet from the environmental effects of energy made by fossil fuels. It does work effectively and can reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to and using just one wind turbine can prevent around 5,000 tons of CO2 being put into the atmosphere a year. Wind energy produces little to air pollution or greenhouse gases, and is a very efficient form of energy but it does have its downfalls. “It is ironic that we think of wind, solar, geothermal, and other energy sources as "alternative" energy resources. If we look at energy from an historical perspective, wind and solar energy uses date back thousands of years, while coal and refined petroleum are more recent”(Deal, W. F. (2010, September). Wind mills were early wind turbines are believed to have started in the Middle East and were used for grinding corn or grain. In the United States Wind mills were used in the 1800’s in the Midwest to pump water for farms to water animals and irrigate crops. In the mid 1900’s windmills were used to generate small amounts of electricity to power batteries. As power lines were put in most of the windmills were destroyed. Wind power farms start popping up in the 1980’s and were......
