The Mighty Ducks

A powerful lawyer gets in trouble for drunk driving, so the judge tells him to take a break from his job and coach a small team that doesn't even have a name, for volunteer work. From the beginning of the movie, “The Mighty Ducks,” the coach went off at a wrong approach when coaching these kids. The underdog team has a pretty low self-confidence as it is. He had no patience and basically told the kids that they are terrible players, which was poor communication on his half. This decreased both their motivation to try and self-confidence. His approach was terrible, he learned that it was a poor reinforcement, but he tries going at a different approach in order to get success. He knew that the kids weren't very good, so he decided to have the kids cheat by making them fake their injuries. This was terrible sportsmanship on his behalf. This was also a failed approach that he attempted. He knew he had to go at a different approach to get the kids to cooperate with him. He gave the kids the name “The Mighty Ducks,” because of this they felt like they had more of a purpose. They began to actually respect him and the team started to work together. The coach mainly had an extrinsic motivation when it came to teaching these kids, which was getting it done and over with so he can get back to his job. As he taught on though, he began to actually like the kids and actually liked coaching hockey, so he developed an intrinsic motivation. That intrinsic motivation helped the kids with the training; they know longer felt like an…...

Double Ducks

...By Stuart J. Murphy As the book present the word “ Double,” I recognize it should have to do with math and the base addition. Moreover, the author Stuart J. Murphy is a famous writer for children with those base skills in math and geometry. In the summary of this fun book, the young cowboy has his two hands full with five little ducks. They need three sacks of food and four bundles of hay. And when they each bring home a friend, it's twice as much work. For 10 little ducks, he needs double the food, double the hay and double the hands. Double Ducks is a level one book for children age of 3 and up. I choice this book because it has a cute and fun story that children will have more interested in reading. Also, I like the author use ducks (something children have for daily basic) to put in the story, and there is a cute boy show his daily task to take care of animals. However, the book is not only about basic math concept but also include the love for animals and friendship. After reading the book, I would have two activities follow up for children to do. One activity is building a block tower between 1 and 10 blocks tall. I will ask children to count the number of blocks and help building a second tower using the same number of blocks. Then, let children find the total number of blocks it took to build both towers. Second activity is double game by 2 dices. Children start with 10 points. Then, each of children will take each turn to roll dices. If doubles are......

...Running Head: MAORI Page 1 The Mighty Maori Ericka Silva ANT101 Intro to Cultural Anthropology Katie Custer Mar. 4, 2013 Running Head: MAORI Page 2 The Mighty Maori The Maori were people that were said to have come from Tahiti and arrived in New Zealand in the 14th Century time frame. They came in what was called “the seven canoes of the great fleet”. (Latham, C; 1996) They are considered to be Polynesians and originally had found their home in the top parts of New Zealand. They are what we call “foragers” in the Anthropology world. Foragers are those cultures that hunt and gather from the land in which they live on. (Nowak, B/Laird, P; 2010) In the following pages I will describe how this culture lived and survived. I will describe how their ways of life were and events that came about. In 1350 they were a tribe that migrated from the Polynesian islands and had made their way to New Zealand. These foragers came in a mass group and were mostly hunters and fishermen. When they migrated they had brought their own plants and animals that they had domesticated themselves. Unfortunately most of it did not make it through the travel because the climates were too different and the animals and plants were not used to the new land. For many centuries these people survived and flourished in their new land. The Maori have a unique way of believing that there are supernatural ways that help them. They believed in the spiritual aspect of things......

Duck and Cover

...Duck and Cover Name Date Instructor HIS/145 Duck and Cover Duck and Cover is a film that was used to show children the steps they needed to take in the event of a nuclear attack. It shows children to find a space, such as under their desk, to hide under and to cover the back of their necks with their hands to protect themselves. The film also talks about seeking cover in designated shelters if they are not at school or at home. Also discussed is the fact that there may not be a warning siren, though it is expected there will be. The idea was to educate children about the possibility of an attack and how, it was thought to be, the best way to they could protect themselves. Living Under the Threat of Nuclear War Living under the threat of nuclear war must have been an extremely stressful experience. To live life in constant fear that a nuclear bomb could detonate at a moments notice would cause anxiety and fear, making many people fearful of leaving the (perceived) safety of their homes. This must have been especially true for children that may not have fully been able to comprehend the threat. In the comments section of the video, one viewer wrote “I used to have nightmares about the "Bomb" when I was a kid. It was such a nebulous but terrifying thing. In school we had this sort of "duck and cover" propaganda complete with drills and explanations about the "bright flash", etc. As a child, one of my big fears was that......

Duck and Cover

...Duck and Cover Eric R. Drayton HIS/145 June 10, 2013 Gina Flakes Duck and Cover The society we live in today is so different than that of World War II. In that era the biggest threat of destroying society was the atomic bomb. In these times of today we face so many different threats of terrorism from other countries and from within our own cities. Even more than just terrorism, today’s society faces some many threats from within itself, such as Ganges in the inner cities, to the fall of inner city government through the influence from the sales of illegal drugs. The survival of a nuclear act was and all ways will be one of society’s main concerns. The atomic boom was the center of fear because, the technology had just been discovered and other countries had the technology in their hands as will. The U.S. had no real protection for the people from being acted by other countries, for the most part it was a wait and see game played with the threats between two countries. It seem to have such an impact on the people of that time it changed their life styles, from saving money for the further too the build and stocking boom shelters in their back yards. Comparing the threat nuclear war to the threat of terrorism today is different in many was in that terrorism has many different faces. Today’s terrorism comes not only from other countries but also comes from within the U.S. from some of our own people. Like the students of World War II, the students of......

Duck and Cover

...Duck and Cover When looking at the video duck and, it have the appearance of as though America were very afraid of being by the nuclear bomb. They learn to be precaution and reassured everyone that there were ways to be protected when a bombing should amass. It looks as if like the government put out this video out to give the people a piece of mind, so that they would not be in a panic or rage of it happing to any them. When showing this to the threat of terrorism some of the similarities were the panic and the damage to the land as well as damage to the people emotionally. I do not really think that it was many differences between the two. If only two well-armed countries are involved in the melancholy encounter, and’’ if each set off less than 10 percent of its total nuclear arsenal over the other's largest cities, the mildest conceivable outcome is 35 million dead and 10 million seriously injured in each country, with one-half the total industrial capacity of each side destroyed. Our main enemy would be Russia in the attack if we were to go head to head’’. This video tells the story that America will protect their country no matter what the problems. I look at the story as a learn matter. I remember in middle school we used to have the drills all the time for fire, hurricane, and bomb attack, just in case anything happen. I understand why Government felled that we as a nation need to know this matter can save life. This was a great motto for adult and children. I......

Duck and Cover

...Duck and Cover Santana Ludos HIS/145 March 10, 2014 Paul Mole Duck and Cover  “Duck and Cover” is a film created to teach children how to duck and cover in the case of a nuclear attack on United States soil. The film features a cartoon turtle that shows children to duck and cover during a nuclear strike. I think the film shows the mentality that the United States was expecting a retaliation bombing for the use of nuclear weapons on Nagasaki during World War II. The feeling must have been beyond frightening to believe the threat was so high that they needed to teach their children of as young as six years old how to react to a nuclear strike.  The fear that our enemies can hurt us on our own soil without warning left our country feeling many emotions such as vulnerable and angry all at once. The United States felt fear of retaliation that our enemies would strike us on our own soil.   The fear was so great that they felt the need to teach everyone how to react to a nuclear attack.   The face of war changed when we dropped the Atom Bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It showed the world that we had the most powerful weapon in the world, so powerful it ends wars.   The terrorist attacks on 9/11 caused so much fear that the United States declared war on terror but nobody saw it coming. We as a country vowed to never be that vulnerable again but in my opinion it still seems as if no certain drastic measures have been taken to be better prepared for another attack on U.S. soil...

Duck and Cover

...Duck and Cover Hist/415 03/03/2014 James Fennessy Duck and Cover There are many questions in today’s society vs. the era of the nuclear bomb. Back during the cold war, it must have been brutal just thinking about a nuclear bomb dropping on us. Imagine being a child, and constantly having the fear of possibly being in the path of a nuclear bomb. The adults were just as afraid and nervous for the lives and those of their children as well. The government was always looking at nuclear weapons and showed its power with the bombing of Hiroshima during August 6, 1945. (Rosenburg, n.d.) With the knowledge that our country has today, and thinking of a nuclear war, no one could imagine living through one in this day and age. However, the threat of the nuclear confrontation is somewhat similar today. A nuclear war is very similar to the threat we see today with terrorism. Both of these threats can lead to a lot of mental issues, economic issues, and political issues. Not to mention the amount of stress of conflict has on the American psyche. The threat of terrorist attacks is immediate, but the nuclear threat does still loom. Although, both are dangerous, terrorists attacks are typically the explosion of buildings, bridges, and other highly populated areas. Nuclear attacks can decimate continents, and wide ranges of area. Terrorist attacks are normally minor compared to the attack of a nuclear weapon. Since the bombing of the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, we still......

Duck and Cover

...Duck and Cover Duck and Cover After the discharge of the original atomic bombs, many Americans were elated that World War II was at an end. As additional research was conducted about the effects and power of atomic bombs, anxiety began to move throughout the United States. But when the first atomic bomb was tested by the Soviet Union in 1949, anxiety turned to terror and alarm. To alleviate Americans’ fears, the U.S. Government created films that shed light on the characteristics and showed practices for persisting an atomic attack. Duck and Cover, a movie, was presented to school aged children starting in 1950. This film featured a cartoon turtle with a jovial theme song, and sound advice. Duck and Cover was supposed to reassure children that they would know what to do, in the event of an atomic strike. Instead of reassuring the kids, pictures of little Billy fleeing to the basement, it convinced youngsters that the atomic shells could drop at any time and gave them bad dreams. The government’s theory during this juncture was that atomic could be used as part of a “conventional” battle between America and Mother Russia. If that occurred, America would need to continue the manufacturing of war products. Large cities would surely be targets, and in the occasion of evacuation, cities would be gridlocked. Citizens of American were advised to formulate plans for potential nuclear occurrence, to recognize what to do and where to go if the air raid sirens ever went off. ......

BOACHIE MENSAH COURSE: STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT IN SMALL FIRMS ASSIGNMENT CASE STUDY “BOSTON DUCK TOURS” QUESTIONS 1. What is Andy Wilson’s primary motivation for leading an entrepreneurial life? 2. What kind of entrepreneurial venture is Boston Duck Tours? 3. Describe the competitive advantage of Boston Duck Tours. 4. What characteristics of successful entrepreneurs does Andy Wilson embody? ANSWERS 1. The primary motivation for Andy Wilson, the founder of Boston Duck Tours for leading and entrepreneurial life was the fact that he wanted to be his own boss. The case alludes to the fact that “having worked for seven years in an investment banking firm, Wilson was no longer motivated by the suit-and-tie atmosphere of corporate America.” As a potential entrepreneur, he was also motivated by the zeal to exploit the window of opportunity in the tourism industry. The case recounts Wilson’s experience by saying that “His first trolley tour, which he called “such a pathetic experience,” gave him the determination to keep pushing forward.” As a result, it is seemingly clear that the boring nature of “the suit-and-tie atmosphere of corporate America” together with a clear open window of opportunity gave Andy Wilson the motivation to lead such as successful but......

The Great and Mighty

...The Great and Mighty RL is in danger. Nowadays people tend to care less and less about the way they write and speak. And The Great and Mighty is in a big, even disastrous danger. I would mention two things that to my mind prevent people in some way from writing and thinking correctly. The first thing is the State Exam. It’s an imminent threat which we should get rid of as soon as possible though it seems that this exam is way too profitable for some people in the higher authority and they won’t let us decide whether we need it or not. In past pupils would write a composition at their graduation exam. And I was told that it was almost impossible to cheat or write a good composition without reading a book that is mentioned in the topic of the composition. And what do we have now? We are writing a test, just think of it – a test, a very primitive test. And yes, also at the end of the test we are to write a composition of 180 words or so. But it’s nothing. One doesn’t have to read books to write this composition, one doesn’t have to amaze people by their individual style. All that a pupil needs is to write short simple sentences not to make mistakes. Profound thoughts are not required. One just have to state the content of a text and give a short comment on it to prove an idea if one agrees with it or prove the contrary if one doesn’t agree. The mind is not developing; it seems like a template – if you managed to write one good composition, you would be able to write thousands...

Boston Duck Tours

...BOSTON DUCK TOURS BOSTON DUCK TOURS ABM 171 I. Case Facts It is not uncommon for entrepreneurial ventures to meet with resistance. Even though small businesses account for more new job creation than larger established firms, many people and organizations are often reluctant to embrace entrepreneurial opportunities. Andy Wilson, founder of Boston Duck Tours, experienced this firsthand. But despite the overwhelming obstacles he faced in starting and growing his business, he persisted with a positive attitude and commitment to his idea. He left his job in an investment banking firm because he is no longer motivated by the same old atmosphere of corporate America. Wilson decided to bring the Duck Tour concept to Boston and create a lively, informative, historical tour to showcase the city from both the land and the river. He invested $30,000 of his own money and then began making the rounds, seeking government permits and additional investors. Duck drivers (called conDUCKtors) need four licenses: a captain’s license from the U.S. Coast Guard, a commercial driver's license from the state of Massachusetts, a license from the Department of Public Safety, and a sightseer's license from the city of Boston. Despite these requirements, applicants responded in droves. Determined to create a different kind of tourist attraction, Wilson decided to abandon traditional interviewing techniques. Instead, he had applicants meet with a theatrical coach who put them through......

Duck and Cover

...Duck and Cover Nuclear warfare was something that could damage all of civilization within a wide area, to know that a bomb could be set off and at anytime with no knowledge of when is a little scary. I would personally want to have some kind of idea so that I could protect my family in some form or fashion. In the video duck and cover watching the kids walking down the street and the bomb going off is scary. The video was a good form of teaching children and parents how to protect themselves if a nuclear bomb was to be set off. When terrorism struck the people had no idea of what was happening. The fact that a person or group of people considers hurting the innocent is wrong. The people that were killed in the 9-11 attack were just innocent by standers that were targeted because one person was upset with something that a past president had done. I personally think that a problem should be resolved in a different way other than violence. Terrorism threats and nuclear war are both dangerous to civilization. They both hurt and destroy innocent people and things. Unlike terrorism threats a nuclear bomb can destroy a wide variety of things and can affect civilization longer because of radiation being released, terrorist threats like 9-11 can destroy a variety of things like a nuclear bomb but it takes more than just one bomb. Terrorist threats can also affect civilization for a long period of time also, the people that lose family members can never get over that pain no matter......

Dazzler or Duck?

...Dazzler or duck? This question was posted to me by one of my form teacher in primary school. When I got this question, I was rather puzzled. A dazzler? A duck? I went on searched for the true meanings of this question. After a while, I realized that a dazzler is actually an extrovert and a duck is an introvert. First of all, let me explain what a dazzler and a duck are. A dazzler is a person or thing that dazzles, in particular a person who is overwhelmingly impressive or skillful. A duck is a person predominantly concerned with their own thoughts and feelings rather than with external things. I did not answer this question as I was not certain of myself. I did not know whether I was an extrovert and introvert. Hence, I decided to put this question aside. When I was thinking of a topic to write for my journal entry, this question just popped up in my head. Is there a right or wrong answer in this particular question? Will be deemed stupid if I gave an acceptable answer? These questions raced through my head as I did not know what to do. I guessed I am a bit of both maybe more to the duck side. When I am alone or with my good friends, I tend to be a ‘duck’ listening to what the others are saying. However, when I have to answer questions aloud, I will be a ‘dazzler’ speaking my answers with confidence, most of the time. After some time, I realized that they are actually no right and wrong answer in this question. This question is about your personality. Whether......
