The Rack of a Shotgun in the Night

In the clear early Saturday morning around 4:30 am, I completed my shift on a part time detail at a popular hip-hop night club that I worked for off duty along with two additional officers. The club serves alcohol to the 21 year old and over crowd. The capacity level is reach quite frequently every Saturday night. The potential party goers who can not gain entry try to hangout in the parking lot of the club. The club owner employed several off duty police officers with myself included to deter in crime or incidents on the property after the club is closed at 4:00 am. My job was to ensure that no loitered in the dimly lighted parking lot of the club. I would walk the parking area in my full department issued uniform to give the show of officer presence to hinder any crime that could potentially take place. I checked to ensure there were no disputes physical or verbal in the parking area. A clear presence disrupted any vehicle theft or vandalism too. I walked the parking area and gave verbal instructions to individuals who sat in or just stood by vehicles to make entry to the establishment or depart the property. A combination of alcohol and poor judgement has been a factor with people who did not follow instructions in the parking area. At 4:00 am, one of the security guards for the club opened the front door and I could hear the DJ say that the club was closed. The loud music had stopped and people began to exit the club to the parking lot. I stood near the exit to ensure that no one came out with an alcohol. One of security guards helped a female who drunk out of the club. The drunk female was with two other female friends that drove her home. I walked to observe the security guard assist the intoxicated lady and her girlfriends to their vehicle. I approached the car that the women were in as I shined my flashlight…...

My Shotgun Is Missing from My Life

...The Mossberg 12-gauge shotgun represents raw power. Power, both in the sense of the energy it emits when it is fired, and in the feeling it gives you when it is being wielded. It is a resource for entertainment, gathering sustenance, or governing nations if used correctly. On the other hand, it can be used as a form of control over objects and environments around you. With those who may not be able to contain the darker sides of their inherent human natures—the urge for power or dominance, the sense that having more is better, succumbing to the ideality that wealth and material things brings power and respect, and giving in to the temptation to simply take it now, rather than work for the possibly unattainable, wanting to know what it feels like to take a life—it can be an item of darkness, tempting the weak-minded to give in to their savage nature. The firearm was first designed to kill. To win wars. It can both taketh and giveth. It is a mechanical device, smooth, sleek, and to some, sexy. The feel of it in your grip, the weight of it, the smell of gunpowder when it is fired, all inflame the senses. It is a weapon of destruction that demands to be revered. It’s not so much that this item, in and of its self, is important to me. It is what the item sybolizes to me. It represents my past and the poor choices I made long ago. It stands for the consequential loss of my freedom, my Constitutional right. Something that can never be found, nor recovered again. I am a felon,......

First Kill

...like getting up before the sun are critical to how well the hunt is going to go. This childhood experience was one of the most memorable for me because of how much I love to hunt. I was in the sixth grade when I found out that the Ohio hunting regulations had changed. It was a new law allowing hunters who had not yet taken the required course to purchase an apprentice license which let you be accompanied by an officially licensed hunter of proper age. One could imagine the excitement in me. Being a young boy that got to go hunting with my own gun instead of just tagging along was an extremely exciting experience. As the youth gun season approached, I, needing to enhance the quality of my mediocre shot, took my grandmother’s 20-gauge shotgun out almost every day regardless of weather. Hunting season came and went no matter what the weather was like so I had to practice in it. I quickly got my shot down to near perfection. It was time to bag some deer! The morning of the first day of youth season was perfect for hunting. I woke up to the sound of my grandfather’s crackly voice saying, “Come on boy, you can’t lie in bed all day and expect to get the big one!” Five o’clock in the morning was extremely early for a sixth grader. Nevertheless, I willed myself out from under the warm confines of my bed to get myself dressed and go out into the frigid November air. The area where we were heading was not far from our house so the warm drive in the truck lasted all but a......

Innovative Products and the Intrapreneurial Approach to Success

...Intercontinental University MGMT 422 William Becker Innovative Products and the Intrapreneurial Approach to Success Introduction Shotguns have been around for hundreds of years starting with the black powder loaded Shotguns to the single and double barreled shell loaded shotguns. Shotguns have most often been used for hunting and protection. However, only within the last 100 years have shotguns had a tube load magazine making the shotgun capable of holding more rounds and being reloaded faster. However in the sporting and self defense world the fact that the tube fed magazine could not be removed or reloaded as easily as other magazine fed firearms made many firearm enthusiasts and professionals eager to find a way to reload theses guns as fast as or faster than firearms with removable magazines. ("Shotguns: Actions and Designs," 2011) TEC Loader SL-12 Shotgun Speedloaders The Tec Loader is a speed loader designed to be used with many different and popular models of tube fed shotguns. It is in essence a way of auto loading or speed loading a shot gun that would otherwise require the handler of the shotgun to manually thumb load the shotgun at the time that it runs out of ammunition. This reloading apparatus is a perfect example of an innovative product designed to speed up and ease the effort of reloading tube fed shotguns. In many cases and in capable hands it can actually be faster than replacing a removable magazine. It is now used in timed competition......

...Lateral and Vertical Collaboration Communication and collaboration are both essential elements in an organization’s strategic objectives, daily functionalities, and their ability to gain a competitive advantage. Kudler Fine Foods’ ability to communicate closely together as well as collaborate in their operative functions are impressive; however, an action plan that focuses on improving communication, along with lateral and vertical collaboration within Kudler’s employees would prove to be beneficial to the success of the company. Benefits that Kudler could obtain are the elimination of errors or mistakes that occur because of the lack of communication between Kudler’s Administrative departments, store managers, department managers, and hourly employees; an increase in response time; more effective inventory control; a greater satisfaction among Kudler’s employees and customers. As stated, lateral and vertical collaboration are forms of communication and collaboration that can help Kudler Fine Foods improve their communication efforts, which in turn will improve their company as a whole. Communication and information sharing between all levels of a company’s hierarchy is called lateral collaboration. Kudler Fine Food’s intranet technology allows store mangers and department managers, along with all of the administrative department staff the ability to view all of the company’s operational information that helps in making strategic or even routine daily decisions regarding......

Fall of Asclepius

...the front held grenade launchers. The crowd reached the designated distance of two hundred feet. The troops launched the grenades into the air. Light grey smokes hissed from the projectiles while it arced its way towards the crowd. The streets ahead filled with the smoke. The smoke filled they area disguising the entire crowd. The rioters emerged from the gas clouds unaffected like it was just regular fog. They did not reach for their eyes or betray any look of pain. They continued to move toward the line like a living, moving wall. "Riflemen! Aim!" The rioters were within fifty feet of the line. "Fire!" The rifles went off with loud popping sounds. The projectiles hit their targets. The rubber bounced off of the rioters. Only the shotgun rubber bullets caused them to fall over but, even then so, they just got back up and continued walking. Nothing was stopping them. The police and soldiers were starting to panic. The shots that came from their guns became more erratic. They were no longer in sync. "Nothing's stopping them!" a soldier yelled and he stepped away from the line. "Get back in line Private Bennett!" Taylor yelled. "Get back before I get you court-marshalled for desertion. Use lethal force!" The soldier did not listen. He ran as fast as he could. The camera followed him. He stopped briefly at the camera. "If you have any sense, I suggest you run like hell! They are infected! They are not human anymore!" "What do you mean?" Rose tried to ask him.......

Round in the Chamber or Not

...but we still have to be concerned about our MP not having a round in the chamber. Doesn’t research show that it takes additional time to add a round in the chamber? I feel that MP face the most risk when in a situation where they will have to shoot. But now that MP has to worry about other factors before he can safely engage the offender. Factors like, how long does it take to know that your target is approaching you? How long does it take withdraw your side arm from your holster, load a round, switch to fire and then engage the target? Factors like, with is my minimal safe area to fire my weapon before the offender is close enough to hurt me? Well, after thinking about all of those questions and factors, I personally conducted five rack and load drills (after the weapon is withdrawn from the holster). After 10 drills, I have found out that it takes approximately 4 seconds to assess the situation pull your loaded weapon from your holster and fire two rounds at your target (remember you don’t want to hit innocent bystanders and plus you are now carrying hollow points). But you will have to add a additional two seconds to load your weapon and then fire. So, now if you weapon does not have a round in the chamber, your offender has about six seconds to assault you! That right there is enough research for me, to vote for MP to carry a loaded weapon! So how long does it takes for a offender (your target) to close distance and assault you?

Shotgun Sequencing

... What Shotgun Sequencing has uncovered about the Human Microbiome Institutional affiliation Name Date Introduction The human microbiota consists of microorganisms that live inside as well as on humans and they outnumber the human germ cells and somatic cells ten times (Turnbaugh et al. 2007). The collection of genes of these microbial organisms (the microbiome) provides the characteristics that human beings lack (Zimmer 2010). There are two major techniques that are currently used to characterize the microbiome, namely; the (rRNA) small-subunit ribosomal RNA, and the metagenomic study, wherein shotgun sequencing is used to characterize community DNA of these microorganisms. Shotgun sequencing of the human microbiome Shotgun sequencing, also called shotgun cloning in genetics, is a process used for sequencing long strands of DNA. Shotgun sequencing was referred so by resemblance with the quasi-random shotgun firing pattern. The shotgun sequencing method was developed by Fredrick Sanger in the 1970s. The chain termination sequencing process is only be used to sequence relatively short DNA strands. Longer sequences of DNA must be sub-divided into shorter fragments, and then subsequently reassembled to give the entire sequence (Venter et al. 2004). Shotgun sequencing process, which uses random fragments, is used to sequence shorter fragments of longer DNA strands. The process is faster but more complex process. The DNA strand is randomly......

Civil Rights Diary

... the prison could not starve or beat him sufficiently to quiet him, so he was returned to his cell. Not long after that, we were moved out of maximum security. Parchman First Offenders' Unit. After several weeks on "death row", with our numbers at Parchman growing each week, the authorities decided to move us to a facility for first- time offenders. While we were still segregated from the rest of the prison population, denied any exercise outdoors, and (of course) separated by sex, we were now in one large room with rows of cots for sleeping and, I think I remember, tables for eating. Actually, the unit was two large rooms divided by a center area, walled off from us by high bars, where the food was prepared and guards armed with shotguns and pistols roamed. Both the cooks and the guards were themselves prisoners on good behaviour, or "trusties" in prison parlance. Culturally we had arrived, for in the evening after the pots and dishes were cleaned, the cooks would produce steel guitars and sing the prison songs for which Parchman was world famous. Best of all, the Mississippi Freedom Riders were assembled face to face for the first time, including the recent arrivals in Jackson. The next few weeks were some of the most stimulating times of my life. Stokely and others continued my political education — for me, it was mostly listening. I learned to play chess. Those of us who'd been shut in maximum security for some time could catch up on the news with those who'd......

Marhsalls and Nordrtrom Rack Comparison

...Based on our interview with Kirsten, Marshalls seem to have an open door policy. Employees are encouraged to communicate their ideas or concerns to whomever they feel comfortable within the management level. The leadership seems open to feedback and willing to help employees create a comfortable and positive working environment. This is a good approach because if employees feel that they and their ideas matter to Marshalls, it will increase their job satisfaction and positively affect their citizenship behavior. Kristen also told us that “employees can make a lot of decisions” on their own. Showing employees that the company trusts them enough to make their own decisions is another factor that is likely to affect citizenship behavior and job performance positively. During our interview with Kirsten, we also learned that at Marshalls there aren’t many team or individual bonuses, especially for the associates level. Even though, Marshalls tries to motivate employees by promoting from within (generally) it appears that there aren’t many financial incentives to keep employees motivated and driven. They do, however, offer full time employees benefits such as health insurance, 401k plans and paid vacation. Kristen told us that when hiring new retail associates management is looking for “somebody who is punctual, somebody who is organized... has got customer service skills, somebody that is friendly and wants to work with public.” Being punctual and organized are aspects......

Code

...of the Bro Code is not nearly as simple and elegant as God handing down some · stone tablets to Broses, its origins weave all the way back to the dawn of humanity. In the beginning there was no Bro Code ... which was unfortunate for the world's first Bros-Cain and Abel. Lacking an agreed-upon set of social principles, Cain killed Abel and committed history's first Broicide. As punishment Cain was doomed to walk the earth alone. Why? Because without a wingman, he had absolutely no chance to meet chicks. Centuries later a Bro from Sparta and a Bro from Troy got in a fight over a chick named Helen. I know, "Helen" doesn't sound hot, but allegedly she had a "face that launched a thousand ships," so you can just imagine what her rack was like. The two Bros waged a terrible war over this chick- a war that could have been avoided had the Bros been familiar with the most 5 • basic Bro Code: Bros before ho's. Troy pur up a good fight, but the Spartan navy was very powerful. Soon hordes of Spartan seamen burst through the Trojan barrier, and Helen got half the gold for the next eighteen years. Hundreds of years later, appropriately in Philadelphia (the City of Bra Love), a little known delegate named Barnabas Stinson scratched on parchment what is now considered the earliest attempt to record the Bra Code. Over the years Bros have amenqed and added rules, but Stinson's elegant words remain as the glorious preamble to the Bra Code. While the original......
