Tips for Scholarship Applications and Personal Essays* Getting Started Before you start filling out your scholarship applications, you need to spend some time thinking about how to write a scholarship essay that will get the results that you want. For many students, the hardest part of writing a scholarship essay is getting comfortable with highlighting your accomplishments. Students often see this as bragging about themselves. But this is exactly what you need to do in order to convince the judges that you should receive the scholarship instead of the other applicants, you have to tell the judges what makes you a better candidate. Therefore, one of the most important things you have to do when getting ready to write your college scholarship essays is to spend some time reflecting on just how wonderful you really are. When you write down all of the great things you have accomplished, it will be much easier for you to create an essay that conveys your strong points to the judges. Tips for getting ready to write a strong essay: 1. Make a list of all your accomplishments. 2. Develop a list of your extracurricular activities. 3. Write down the three accomplishments of which you are the most proud. 4. Think of a problem that you have faced and write down how you were able to overcome it. 5. Put in writing your career goals, or your reason for wanting to attend college. 6. Pretend that you had to write a letter of recommendation for yourself. Write down the three most important things you would say. Armed with this list of your best traits, accomplishments, and goals, you’re on your way to writing a winning essay. Of course, you have to make sure that your essay is well written, ontopic, sounds sincere, and is free of typographical errors. No matter what you end up saying about yourself, be sure to proofread it very carefully. It’s always a great idea to have someone else…...

..."I once knew a little colored boy whose mother and father died when he was but six years old. He was a slave and had no one to care for him. He slept on a dirt floor in a hovel, and in cold weather would crawl into a meal bag head foremost and leave his feet in the ashes to keep them warm. Often he would roast an ear of corn and eat it to satisfy his hunger, and many times has he crawled under the barn or stable and secured eggs, which he would roast in the fire and eat. That boy did not wear pants like you and I do, but a tow linen shirt. Schools were unknown to him and he learned to spell from and old Webster's spelling book and to read and write from posters on cellar doors, white boys and men would help him. He would then preach and speak and soon become well known. He became United States Elector, United States Marshall, United States Recorder, United States Diplomat and accumulated some wealth. He wore broadcloth and didn't have to divide crumbs with the dogs under the table. That boy was Frederick Douglass." (Taken from a speach by Frederick Douglass promoting his autobiography.) Unlike most of us, Frederick Douglass, who was born in rural Tuckahoe, sometime in February of 1818, did not have a wonderful childhood. Douglass' mother was a slave and his father was thought to have been his mother's owner. After a few weeks with his mother in the cabin pictured above, Frederick was sent to live with his grandmother whom he affectionately called Grandmother Bailey.......

Is This a Waste of Time?

...not decide the fate of a person. Many believe in following the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Completing “good deeds” has become a socially acceptable task over the years. Society promotes good deeds, daily, through ASPCA commercials all the way to child hunger programs. Giving, caring, and including commonly benefit the one showing the actions. Whether it is giving money, time, or both, it can be considered as a good deed. Tithes are the most common and perfect example of giving. Malachi 3:10 states, “‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the Lord, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates and pour out so much blessing that there will not be enough room to store it.” This plainly states that a small portion of what is made and given back is promised to be multiplied into great worth. If members of the church give back graciously, the church may continue to grow, the children will receive the word, or people will become closer to God. I clearly recall the first time I gave an offering. It was twenty dollars out of my first paycheck and I was ecstatic, yet nervous. I knew I had given to a good cause but was curious as to if all my money would go there; I spent many nights praying over my money. Weeks later, I was desperate for the twenty dollars to pay for gas. At the gas pump, my card was not declined and I filled up half of my tank. As I pulled up my banking account,......

Taco Bell in Japan, Round Two Japan, Will This Time Be a Fiesta or Siesta?

...Taco Bell in Japan (Round Two Japan, will this time be a Fiesta or Siesta?) By Phillip Smith As a child, growing up on the West Coast of America, Taco Bell, was as common as McDonalds, with locations in every neighborhood. Its classic chicken quesadilla and bean burrito were staples of my college diet and I could not imagine a fast-food landscape without the spicy taco-sauce. Although, since moving to Japan in 2005, I’ve had to settle for eating Taco Bell only when traveling outside of Japan. That being said, every other major US fast-food chain seems to be serving its notable favorites in the land of the Rising Sun. For example, McDonalds operates over 3,100 units (Inagaki, 2015), Kentucky Fried Chicken has 1165 locations (Yum!’s, 2015) and Starbucks has 1117 (Loxcel, 2015); but where is Taco Bell? On 21 April, 2015, the multinational fast-food chain answered back with its launch into the Japan market with a new location in Shibuya, Tokyo. This is not Taco Bell’s first launch in Japan. Back in the late 1980’s it opened stores in two markets, Tokyo and Nagoya (Matayoshi, 2015). A few years later in the early 1990s, they closed all the Japan operations, abandoning the country. Will the second attempt be different? How will marketing play a role in its success? Did they invest in market research to gain insight in the lay of the land? How will its competitive environment contrast its first attempt to penetrate the Japan market? What type of competitive......

...launched the “Subway Diet” that is still promoted today still using Jared Fogle. This is one of Subway’s greatest promotional strengths, because of Jared Fogle focused on losing weight and by him choosing Subway for his food intake over other alternatives, such as Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystems, surgical options etc., he has become Subway’s leading brand. My Own Webpage The business that I would launch would be Organic Products which would provide a line of products designed for both men and women. These products would be 100% all natural ingredients and made in the U.S. The product line would be personal care, health, beauty and personal hygiene. Organic Products will be a company where all products will be available through the website only, by having consumers ordering online and not having the products available at a store, this will keep overhead cost down. Expanding to retail market would be considered if a organic retail store requested to collaborate with Organic Products. The expenses in operating a retail store will be eliminated and these funds can be used toward research and development. This will also help in ensuring quality control of the product, since the products will be shipped from where it is made. The target market would be consumers seeking an all natural product, products that have no artificial colors, perfumes, additives and harmful chemicals. This market would include and not limited to consumers that prefer an all......

Analyse the Market Conditions Faced by Waitrose at This Time (9 Marks)

...1A) ANALYSE THE MARKET CONDITIONS FACED BY WAITROSE AT THIS TIME (9) GROCERY PRICE INFLATION HAS FALLEN FOR THE TENTH SUCESSFUL PERIOD- NOW 0.4% SINCE 2006 In a fast paced world Waitrose has benefitted from its ability to adapt and conform to society’s changes; convenience is in increased demand, and Waitrose’s free delivery on groceries gives them a competitive advantage in a very modern, technologically advanced market. Waitrose must retain profits whilst offering unique and modern services such as free delivery. As consumers become more price and quality conscious in the food market, mid-market players are becoming unpopular in comparison with discounters (e.g. Aldi, Lidl) and superior supermarkets (e.g. Waitrose). Value for money is often questioned by most consumers, and Waitrose must ensure they deliver quality along with their high price tag if they are to keep their quality, upmarket reputation (market differentiation). Buyers are now more conscious of their spending habits since the recession in 2008, leading to a preference of inferior goods, which is incredibly difficult for Waitrose to cater for whilst still offering quality and a high price tag. The market growth has fallen to 0.9% as a result of the grocery price inflation being at its lowest point since 2006.The inflation rate has decreased significantly as all supermarkets viciously cut prices in order to keep up with discounters, a move that Waitrose will find hard to do. However, as Waitrose cannot......

The Impact of Music and Books in This Time and Age

...There were times when I would be home and don’t feel like leaving the house or playing video games and I’m just sitting there bored. My mother always told to just go read a book and I’ll just be looking at her like are you serious. So when she tells me to do that I just say forget it I’m just going to listen to my music. She always told that I’m so quick to go learn lyrics when I don’t show that same excitement for reading. When my mother told me that, I started to realize that it seems like the majority of the kids in my generation are doing the same thing. My mother always asked me why I prefer music over reading books. And this is what I told her. Music is usually looked at as an expression of ones feelings, thoughts, or living experience. Whereas Books are usually used to expand ones imagination to elevate ones mind to see certain things in a different light. Through my lifetime I’ve notice that the preference is usually listening to music instead of sitting down and reading a book. Here I will be comparing and contrasting these two topics and we will see the impact that music and books have in our lives. The impact that music has on the youth seems as though it has more of a influence on us because music is literary everywhere. Don’t get me wrong, books are everywhere too, but commercially, music is advertised way more than what companies do to get a book noticed on the market. In the town that I’m from people are usually attracted to the negative aspect that music......

...Nurse Education in Practice 13 (2013) e11 Contents lists available at SciVerse ScienceDirect Nurse Education in Practice journal homepage: www.elsevier.com/nepr Book review Healing Presence: the Essence of Nursing, JoEllen Koerner, sec- ond ed. Springer Publishing Company, New York (2011). The major premise in this thought provoking book is that nurs- ing is sacred work dedicated to the service of others, and requires a nurse’s deliberate commitment to inner spiritual growth to achieve a healing presence with patients. Healing presence de- scribes the feminine energy and receptivity part of nursing’s heri- tage, which offers limitless possibilities for a nurse’s self enhancement through an inward spiritual journey, the results of which, in turn, contribute to and facilitate a patient’s self healing. This book invites deep personal/professional reflection on the nurse, the nurse–patient relationship, and the profession’s future direction. Its step-by-step approach guides such reflection from a multi-cultural global perspective. An audience of experienced nurse clinicians and educators will discover practical application of healing presence’s evolutionary link to nursing science and art evident in the practical values guide, the professional development analysis and the leadership develop- ment analysis. In science, the nurse employs the ‘evaluator’ aspect of analytic thought; in art, the nurse ‘interprets’ abstract percep- tions and pattern recognition; and in......

...Commercial Code (UCC) Contract for the sale of goods as defined by the UCC is all things, which are moveable at the time of identification to the contract. Here, the transaction between buyer and seller involved the sale of bees and hives, which are movable and identifiable at the time of the contract; therefore, UCC rather than the Common law governs this transaction. Merchant UCC defines merchant as a person who deals in goods of the kind or otherwise by his occupation holds him/herself out as having knowledge or skill peculiar to the practices or goods involved in the transaction. Here, B stated to S, " Since you are also in the bee business and have bought bees and hives from me in the past…" This statement shows both parties deal in goods of the kind (bees and hives) or have special skill or knowledge regarding the specific goods involved in the transaction; therefore, B and S are merchants and will be held to higher standard of good faith and fair dealing. Offer An outward manifestation of present contractual intent so made as to justify another in thinking his assent is needed and will conclude it; under the UCC, only quantity is needed. Here, S unambiguously stated to B, "After much thought I have decided to sell my remaining bees and hives." However, this statement lacks the quantity requirement under the UCC, therefore it is not clear whether this is an offer on its face. Nevertheless, the UCC also states that even though one or more terms are left open,......

...| | | Meena Durairaj | [ International Labor Standards] | | Summary This paper focuses on the International Labour Organization (ILO) responsible for drawing up and overseeing international labour standards. History of international labour standards The International Labour Organization (ILO) was founded in 1919 as part of the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I. the ILO was created as a branch of the League of Nations order to address all conceivable aspects of labour rights. Preliminary efforts focused primarily on the eradication of slavery and all forms of forced labour. The Constitution was drafted between January and April, 1919, by the Labour Commission set up by the Peace Conference, which first met in Paris and then in Versailles. Since 1919, the International Labour Organization has maintained and developed a system of international labour standards aimed at promoting opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work, in conditions of freedom, equity, security and dignity. In today's globalized economy, international labour standards are essential components in the international framework for ensuring that the growth of the global economy provides benefits to all. Are labour standards feasible? Globalization has created opportunities and benefits for many around the world. However, workers and employers still face challenges. Inequality, poor work place policies and cultural differences are part of those challenges.......
