Emerging Adulthood
The transition into adulthood is one of the most complex and significant shifts of any generation. It is a complex and ongoing process that starts as soon as a child is born and continues as the child becomes an adolescent, to early adult life, and then through the stages of adulthood. When I think of the meaning of becoming an adult I think of setting aside childish ways and becoming a responsible adult. When emerging to adult hood you have to do adult things like being financially responsible, taking care of the household, cooking, cleaning, servicing your car regularly, and putting gas in it. There are so many things you need to do to for a smooth transition into adulthood. Becoming an adult is the most important thing in life.
I think going into adulthood in my culture the expectations were set pretty high. After high school I was expected to get a job and start making my own money. I had a boyfriend so my expectations where not to move out with him until I was married, no kids until I was married. I also had to continue to go to church every Sunday. In my culture graduating from high school is a big part of growing up it is an accomplishment we wait to see and work hard to get to. Graduating from high school is the stepping stone into adult hood. It is the first thing that starts your life because it is a what is next process. One has to ask ones self is college for me? Do I want to get a job and start making money. So many decisions and things you have to prepare for when you graduate. Following the footsteps of my parents being educated and owning their own business or having a job that pays really well, I have to stop and think what is next for me since adulthood is around the corner. I have so many accomplished people around me I need to get a…...

...Running head: EMERGING ISSUES Assignment #2 Emerging Issues Task Force   Abstract In 1982, the Financial Accounting Foundation Structure Committee produced a report on operating efficiency that indicated a need for more timely guidance on implementation questions. That report resulted in the formation of an advisory group, which evolved into the Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF). This task force was established to assist the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in improving financial reporting through the timely identification, discussion, and resolution of financial accounting issues. (FASB, 2011) This paper discusses and explores the EITF in greater detail. Discuss how the Emerging Issues Task Force influences Generally Accepted Accounting Standards. The Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) was formed in 1984 to respond to the recommendations of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) task force on timely financial reporting guidance. The EITF influences general accepted accounting standards by providing improved financial reporting through timely identification, discussion, and resolutions within the framework of an existing authority. The EITF designed to reduce diversity in practice on current issues in a quick and timely manner that should not exceed three to four annual meetings. This advisory board also minimizes the need for the FASB to spend time and effort addressing narrow implementation, application, or other emerging issues......

Emerging Adulthood

...handle adult duties. Therefore, the stage called emerging adulthood happened prior to me entering adulthood. Many feel they stepped they’re way into adulthood by the end of their 20’s or early 30. During this period, changes took place in educational paths, jobs, love partners, and identity. Also, many people make changes their majors several times, and after graduating enter graduate school which delays settlement into the desired career path. Since young adults are always on the move, they move in and out of homes and resident halls. Due to unsettlement in career and being on the move, results in delay marriage as well. However, not every young adult in the world goes through this process of emerging adulthood. Many young adults in non-western countries have no emerging adulthood. They enter marriage, parenthood, and lifelong work early. In low income families, young people do not finish high school or are unprepared for college, and are less likely to leave home, therefore emerging adulthood is nonexistent.  Emerging adults also begin too to build intimacy and trust in relationships that will last a lifetime. However, individuals in emerging adulthood think of intimacy in a different way than in the past. Emerging adults have created a new shift during the period of adolescence and young adulthood in which they are more open to and accept uncommitted sexual activity during the college years. In summary, the goal of emerging adulthood is to renovate from the cocoon......

Emerging Adulthood

...the most part. These years in a persons life have often been referred to as emerging adulthood. Emerging adults have reached a step up from childhood but are not yet ready to fully take on adult responsibilities. This part of life is open to many new experiences which can be very good for the morality of this upcoming generation of adults. People find themselves changing majors in college or taking different classes to explore their interests and find out where they best belong in their future career field. In this period of time, it is hard to advance in a career field without having education further than a high school diploma. Hence, the reason many people are starting families and careers later in life because they cannot simply graduate high school and get a job to support a family comfortably. This situation makes the changing from being an adolescent to an adult much more drawn out. Our culture creates this outlook on how we should live. In other countries it is harder to go to school and most people jump straight into adulthood rather than having such a long emerging period. A lot of times emerging adults take a lower standard of living in order to leave home sooner, allowing that person an independence and self reliability they have not yet experienced. After a taste of the life on their own, most young adults end up moving back home at some time for numerous reasons. From my own experience, I can say that if you have lived on your own, moving back home is one......

...lot of population migrating, trying out new jobs,progressive independent women questioning the social norm of male superiority. This is seen particularly in the emerging economies who are the game-changers this century. Joint efforts of all countries towards strengthening the global economy,as well as increasing efforts in business oriented policies and eradication of trade barriers has resulted in the urbanisation of these markets. Another important aspect being the economic hit taken by the developed countries which has made brands shift their focus on the emerging countries market. (BBC News,2013) It is one of the most significant trends seen on the global level. The annual consumption of emerging markets by 2025 will reach $30 trillion and account for nearly 50% of the world’s total consumption. (McKinsey) It clearly indicates the supremacy of emerging economies vis a vis the developed economies. Moreover the average age of the population in emerging economies is young and is expected to be even younger meaning the majority of population will be in the age bracket of 15-65 which is considered as the working age population. This indicates growth prospects in terms of more employment and therefore more disposable income in the hands of these consumers. If we consider the four BRIC countries plus the tier 2 emerging markets, together they account for 3,4 billion people,more than half of the current world population of which the top 20% already have similar purchasing power......

...of my GEN class (in my first semester). That was because a few students from my high school were in the class and they know I am a quiet but confident student so they believed in me. A leader that has had a significant influence on me is Atiku Abubakar. He is a leader I admire a lot. At first he was a very poor child going to school with no much hope of becoming someone as great as he has become but he never gave up. He strived hard and finally he is achieving his aims. Instead of going to a foreign country to invest, as most leaders in Nigeria do, he decided to invest in his own hometown. He gives me the hope that no matter how hard things get, I can still make it. I also want to be a leader like him. My aims as a participant of the emerging leader’s academy are to develop my leadership skills which I believe are hidden but with practice and motivation, they will emerge....

Emerging Adulthood

...Nicholas Baumgarten Dr. Bishnu Ghimire English 1010 10/1/2015 Evaluation Essay on Emerging Adulthood In a time of economic instability and limited opportunities, the road to successful independence has been nothing short of a suicide mission for young adults of today. It was once mandatory and it was a way of American life to go out and live on your own after you technically become an adult. A lot of times it was expected, but now our country and our society has gone through a world of change and success is not as probable for young adults today as it was back then. This has brought to our attention a very important question we as a nation, a society should ask ourselves, “should young adults around the age of 18 move out of their parent’s house as soon as graduation or even months following.” The early years of adulthood are about finding, nurturing and learning to take care of yourself before you step out into the real world and make your own choices that will change your future so let’s not rush teens out of the house. Instead, support them and make that decision when it’s the right time and not right away. Throughout the past our society led us to believe that young adults, coming fresh out of high school, should be ready to move out of their parent’s house right after graduation to start their own lives and become independent human beings just like their parents did, and their parents did. Considering that things have changed over the years and the world is not......

Emerging Adulthood

...Emerging Emerging Adulthood Kelley Walker Psych/600 November 23, 2015 Susanne Beier Emerging Adulthood Erickson describes a number of further stages of personality development. In young adulthood, the healthy individual has to achieve the capacity for closeness and intimacy through love, or else suffer a sense of isolation that will permit only shallow human relationships (Berk, 2010). In early middle age, she has to develop a sense of personal creativity that extends beyond her own self. This includes a concern for others, for her work, for the community in which she is part. And towards the end of her life, there is a final crisis during which each person has to come to terms with his or her own life and accept it for what it was, with a sense of integrity, rather than despair. The term adolescence is derived from the Latin for “growing up.” It is a period of transition in which the individual changes from a child to an adult. Biological maturing ultimately leads to social and economic changes: from dependence on one’s family to ever increasing independence. And of course there are the numerous psychological changes that accompany the process of growing up. These include the progressive maturing of sexual attitudes and behavior that will ultimately allow the adolescent to start his or her own family, and the acquisition of various skills that will eventually enable him or her to become a fully functioning member of adult society. In effect, adolescence is......

Emerging Nokia

...Emerging Nokia Case Study JANUARY 3, 2012 Defining the Nature of the Problem The nature of global markets has been rapidly changing in the last twenty – twenty five years. These changes to a great degree have been determined by the major breakthroughs in the geopolitical makeup of the world. One of the pivotal events that fueled the economic changes around the globe was the collapse of the communist bloc in the beginning of the 1990s and consequently the dismantling of the bi-polar world order that had been previously characterized not only by two antagonistic ideologies, but also by two incompatible and mostly isolated from each other marketplaces. The description of that old world order was often referred to as “the free and the communist world”, “the West and the East”, which later morphed into” developed and developing” countries. As the pure and acute ideological  division of the world has moved to the fringes of the global agenda, leaving the front stage of the world community focus to the global economic, ecologic and broader humanitarian challenges, the new world paradigm has been more and more often referred to as “developed and emerging economies”. The playing out of these new global realities is very vividly represented by the nature of the challenges and the business decisions required of the executives of the world-renown engineering and telecommunications giant – Nokia, which is mostly known to the world for its leading role in the mobile phone handsets......

Emerging Technologies

...MBA 540 Information Systems Emerging Technology Professor Voight September 11, 2012 For this research assignment we were to focus on emerging technologies for the Internet, within this category I am going to focus on the importance of smart phones and mobile devices. The first cell phone was unveiled in 1983 and has come a long way since then. Cell phones were first given the ability to connect to the Internet in 1999. This is nowhere close to what we think of today when we access the Internet on our phones today. The first smartphone, PalmOne Treo 600, was unveiled in 2003 and was the first successful merger of a cell phone and PDA. Cell phones in our society are more like computers than a phone. Most cell phones today are considered smartphones, and more people than not own a smartphone. Smartphones and mobile devices are changing the way companies conduct business, communicate, and make sales. When discussing smartphones and mobile devices the word apps, short for applications, often comes up. An app is an application, typically a small, specialized program downloaded onto mobile devices. Apps are designed to do any number of specific things, such as calculate tips, GPS navigation, provide entertainment, and many more. For example, Brinks home security systems offer an application that allows users to arm and disarm their alarm system on their device. Craftsman also has an app that allows a mobile user to check if their garage door is open or shut as well as......
