One of the responsibilities of students is to study. Students must fulfill this responsibility in preparation for them to have a better future and for their great contributions to the nation. Through this, they can discover their talents, improve their social skills, develop their values, expand their knowledge, and so forth which lead them to become productive citizens and great contributors for the betterment of the present society along with the great demands and needs in the current times. Studying is maybe a hard task but it can give great things more than people expect. A student’s life is normally challenging. Projects, assignments, group activities, oral reports, recitations, and other school activities make student’s life a tough one.
But in some instances, there are factors why students cannot focus on their studies. So, they cannot give their whole attention in studying and rather choose to focus on their own pleasures. Other than that, some students cannot go to school maybe because of their confidential problems that cannot be noticed by the people around them. These might the reasons that lead the students to become difficult children and unschooled. As we can see, this problem is growing continuously in our society compared to the former generations. Not giving focus to studies means a lot. Teenagers may be directed to the wrong path which is very common to happen today. Fourth year students conduct this thesis entitled “Reasons Why Students Cannot Concentrate on their Studies” to find out the roots of this undying problem and to determine the most occurred cause of it. This thesis tackles about the major reasons why students cannot study well and the causes of their laziness in terms of studying. We will elaborate the reasons and their effects to students, to others, and to our community, so that the students will be…...

Working Poor

...Minimum Wage and the Working Poor HD 403 Poverty Spring 2012 Introduction It is believed one way to help the working poor is to increase the minimum wage to elevate their yearly income. But surveys and studies have shown that raising the minimum wage has done very little to help poverty rate. What it has done is eliminate jobs that the working poor filled and increased inflation. It seems to be an ineffective way to help the poor, a combination of other anti-poverty tools together would produce better results. Issue Each president has wanted to help those in poverty and the working poor in America. President Clinton increased the federal minimum wage to bring up the wages of the working poor. Is that the answer? What will happen when the federal minimum wage is brought up to $9.50 an hour? This article is looking into possibilities of what may happen with poverty and the working poor if the minimum wage were increased. The working poor are people in the workforce but wages still fall below the poverty level. The Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007 has increased the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour (Rep. Miller, 2007). The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports in 2011, there were 73.9 million American workers age 16 and older were paid hourly wage. But only 1.7 million workers made minimum wage of $7.25 per hour and 2.2 million had wages below the minimum (USDL, 3/2012). The working poor looked like a person who had not graduated high......

Mr.Frederick Espiritu January 26, 2013 Chapter 1 The Problem “FACTORS THAT AFFECTS STUDY HABITS OF GRADE ONE STUDENTS OF BALUARTE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, LUMBIA CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY” During the last century we have moved from the Industrial Age through the Information Age to the Knowledge Age. The ability to obtain, assimilate and apply the right knowledge effectively, will become a key skill in the next century. Our ability will no longer be judged solely by qualifications gained in the past, but will also be assessed by our capacity to learn and adapt in the future. Learning isn't just about economic success, however. It is the key to achieving our full potential. Human beings are uniquely adapted to learn and we have the ability to do so throughout our lives.Learning has the power to transform us. Specifically, we can become more successful:at home and with our families, at work and at large in our local community. (Campaign for Learning, UK, 2001) Learning is very important. As human beings we are expected to learn to be able to cope with the new generation. To be able to learn effectively, one must have a good study habits. Study habits are routines, including, but not restricted to, frequency of studying sessions, review of......

Concentration Ratios

...Concentration Ratios Norma G. Adams ECO 204 Sheila Roberts-Phipps January 28, 2013 A quick look into the Concentration Ratios for four different industries, and how Making the decision whether they are oligopolies and how that effects that industry. If an industry is oligopolies is that good or bad for society. The diversity of the industries that are in this study should give a nice idea of how competitive some industries can be. First a look into the fluid milk industry, the U.S. Census Bureau shows that there are 280 different companies in the manufacturing of fluid milk. The largest four companies make up 46 percent of the industry themselves. The industry sells $33,547,992,000.00 per year, which is a very large industry. This industry appears to be an oligopoly, because the four largest companies make up almost 50 percent with the largest eight being 58 percent of the industry (census). “An oligopoly is an industry dominated by a few firms that, by virtue of their individual sizes, are large enough to influence the market price.” (case 2009) The census information shows that the largest eight firms should be able to control the industry and the prices that everyone else should follow. Next a look into the envelope manufacturing industry, here the census bureau shows that the largest four firms make up 57.6 percent of the industry that only consist of 149 firms, selling a total of $3,653,185,000.00 per year (census). With the largest four firms making......

Several studies found this problem challenging and therefore, efforts have to be exerted in order to determine the root cause. According to Lass and Wilson (1965), student fails not because they do not have intelligence to understand why they are studying, not because their lessons are too difficult for them, but because they do not know how to study or understand what study means. Students’ failure in his academic subjects may not be to lack of......

Poor Study Habit

...period just before a significant or concluding moment such as a deadline, due date or scheduled event. But in term of study, last minute is known as cramming. In Commonwealth countries this technique usually occurs during the revision week (week before exams), also known as “swotvac” or “stuvac” In education, cramming or last minute study (also known as mugging or swotting, from word swot, similar to "sweat", meaning "to study with determination") is the practice of working intensively to absorb large volumes of informational material in short amounts of time. It is often done by students in preparation for upcoming exams, especially at the last minute. Cramming is often discouraged by educators because the hurried coverage of material tends to result in poor long-term retention of material, a phenomenon often referred to as spacing effect. H.E. Gorst(year) stated in his book, 'The Curse of Education', “as long as education is synonymous with cramming on an organized plan, it will continue to produce mediocrity.” Generally considered as a negative study technique, cramming is becoming more and more common among students both at the secondary and post-secondary level. Pressure to perform well in the classroom and engage in extracurricular activities in addition to other responsibilities often results in the cramming method of studying. Cramming is a widely-used study skill performed in preparation for an examination or other performance-based assessment. Most common among......

There are many people who are less fortunate and it affects many people in the country. In the United States poverty is greatly increasing especially in the east coast like Brooklyn, New York. It is one of the poorest places in New York State. They have an estimate of 414 individuals living In public spaces or who are homeless according to the homeless outreach population estimated.(Nyc1) The majority of streets less were male ranging in from 21 to 55 and older. Brooklyn outreach rooms have an average of 1157 contacts which are people who go to these homeless shelters and talk to the homeless because the homeless people usually don't have anybody(Nyc1). They can be the loneliest people in the world and the people who go to have a conversation with street homeless people every month could be the thing that brightens their day. The people that they talk to are on average 54 years old and are place into a shelter or a drop in center. These shelters provide food, warmth, and medical care for those who need it. During the winter it is the best thing for the homeless in Brooklyn to do to try and get into one of these homeless shelters in Brooklyn. It could be the thing that saved them from doing something stupid like breaking into somebody's home just for warmth and they end up......

Poor Study Habits

...that here is an issue about study habits of forerign students, and how already interfered with their daily life. Rationale/ Significance Study habits are the most important part of students. Students do not only depend on their IQ, but also depend on their study habits. Those foreign students are living in condominium alone which are near shopping mall. Four of swim pools are in the yard. Big shopping mall include clothes, foods, cinema, ktv, restaurants, entertainments. Students are living by themselves, nobody keeps watch on them, and also the self-control ability is weak. According to survey of study habits of condominium users ( mainly foreign students ) those who no longer stay home, the 156 are graduate students, they only have class on Saturday and Sunday. Therefore, they are free at week-days. They always go to shopping mall, play computer games, date with boyfriend or girlfriend, hang out with friends, always be in a relaxing condition, and being lazy for studying. A lot distraction and their bad self-control ability result in poor study habits, and these ”distractions” conrequently affect their grades and daily life. Statement of the problem In generally, there is normal to choose a comfortable, safe and convenient environment, also have good services inside of condominium. In a good environment, you could have good study habits and good study efficiency. As a matter of fact, there is a lot distraction caused their poor study habits. But they can’t......

Concentration Camps on Nazi and Us

...Date: Comparison-Contrast report on the internment concentration camps placed in United States and Germany. In World War II, the people-citizens which were not needed or just migrated to the country- were detained and confined without any trail is called an Internment concentration camp. The people were prisoners and kept in very bad and extremely harsh in conditions with no rights. The present paper is to highlight the comparison-contrast of the Internment concentration camps placed by United State and Germany to imprison their own populations. Later in 1993 in Nazi Germany ,Concentration become a major source for which Nazi can easily imposed their control and across Nazi controlled Europe between 1938 and 1945 to obtain the maximum hold. The reason to setup these camps were to eliminate any opposition to Nazi by their so called enemies-people who can threat. These people includes the communists, socialist and social democrats, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, and the so called a socials which were found in their own peoples of around 2millions in population whereas male above the age of 14, women’s and children kept in worst condition, given less water and food exposed to brutal and cruelty. They turned week and bad to continue with the deadly process. Many thousands of Jews were arrested during this period resulted bulk of the prisoners of these camps were subjected to increasingly poor conditions. Additionally they were exposed to......

Help the Poor

...Why do we have to help the poor? Where the poverty rate in the world and in America is growing continuously and dangerous? Helping the poor is the duty of every member of society and governments. Several reasons for poverty are education, health, racism and others. Helping the poor should not just by providing them with money, food, clothes and housing. We should look for and solve the main causes of poverty. I am with helping the poor for several reasons, but not the usual ways, because helping the poor by just providing for their needs keep the problem of poverty continuous and increase the percentage of the poor. Also the problem of poverty causes other problems, such as an increased percentage of crimes, decreased percentage of safety, and decreased the economy, and failures to address the problem of poverty exacerbate the problem and create other problems. Those who are opposed to helping the poor or solve the problem of poverty may not realize that this problem may be reflected on them in the future for other problems. If we do not help the poor, crime rates will go up, and this affects the economy, which means an increase in the poverty rate. Education is closely related to the problem of poverty. For the illiterate person or someone who has a little education it is difficult for them to find any kind of job to fulfill the needs of themselves and their family. I do not mean education as just learning in the school, but also education and training for professions and......

The Poor and Their Money

...i The Poor and Their Money An essay about financial services for poor people Stuart Rutherford Institute for Development Policy and Management University of Manchester January 1999 The Department for International Development will be publishing this work in New Delhi during 1999. For further information contact Sukhwinder Arora at the Department for International Development, New Delhi, India. ii PREFACE Over the last 15 years initiatives to provide financial services to poor people (the ‘microfinance industry’) have come on by leaps and bounds in terms of size and reputation. Despite this, the industry is still only in its adolescence and our understanding of why and how poor and very poor people use microfinancial services ( and why many choose not to use the services that are available) remains partial at best. This essay takes the reader on a ‘voyage of discovery’ that seeks to both deepen her/his understanding and encourage her/him to apply that knowledge to the practice of microfinance. The voyage that Stuart Rutherford offers is a unique one based upon years of careful and detailed personal research. It does not take a deductive approach that develops a theoretical model of the financial behaviour of poor people. Nor does it follow the ‘case study plus best practice’ approach that has been favoured by many practitioners when they write of microfinance. Instead, it adopts an inductive approach - based on thousands of conversations and meetings......

Concentration

...AP Art  Silvia Chan   November 20  Concentration I    People always desire to demonstrate their strengths in front of others, but I am an  exception. In my concentration, I want to discover my weakness and improve myself to be a  more successful person. Thinking back to my behaviors and attention in art class, I realize that I  can not focus well and merely keep up with the pace of the class. Procrastination has always  been my concern to achieve my goal because I never feel the pressure of deadlines and do not  understand the serious consequence after missing homeworks.   In addition, I do not enough self­motivation to prompt myself and do not start my  homework until the very last minute. Honestly I do not know what I am doing everyday, but I  continuously delay my works and end up with low grade or score. I understand that  procrastination and lack of responsibility are my weakness, but I never get rid of bad habits.  Therefore, I want to use the concentration to explore my weakness and transform myself into a  successful person.   In my concentration drawing, I will mainly establish the importance of time and  responsibility. Since they are both conceptual ideas, I believe that my drawing will be somehow  abstract. But I have never tried to draw abstract, I hope to overcome the challenge and the fear of  trying new style of drawing. I will probably choose pencils and acrylic painting because I want  to show the colorful side and the weakness side with......

The Naoh Concentration

...a pH meter. Carrying out acid-base titration by conductometric measurement. Determination of the composition of a mixture of acetic acid and hydrochloric acid by conductometric titration. Determination of ferrous ion using potassium dichromate by internal indicator. Determination of hardness (Ca2+ ) of water using EDTA – complexometry method. In this lecture, you will be introduced to a few experiments in chemistry. These experiments complement the theory you have learned in chemical equilibrium and kinetics. 38.1 Acid-Base Titrations: Acid-base reactions are of great practical importance in analysis, not only because of their use in titrating a large number of inorganic and organic substances, but also because the hydrogen ion concentration of a solution often is of great importance in controlling reactions. Titration : The process of determining the volume of a given solution of a reagent equivalent to the amount of another reactant present in a standard solution is known as titration. Equivalent Weight of Acids and Bases : The equivalent weight of an acid is that weight which yields one mole of hydrogen ions in the reaction employed whereas the equivalent weight of a base is that weight which reacts with one mole of hydrogen ions in the reaction. Normal solution : A solution containing one equivalent weight of solute per litre of solution. Equivalence Point : When the number of equivalents of acid (respectively base) added is equal to the number of equivalents of......

Why the Poor Stay Poor

...that the gap between rich and poor has grown. Coupled with this is the resultant degradation of economic and social mobility. This serves to show that they there is a tendency for those that are poor, to remain poor. There are a number of causal factors that seemingly predicate this fate of a poverty cycle. The issues that contribute to this range from the education and wellbeing of the individual, societal influences and values, their spending habits, their living conditions as well as their ability to access funding as a means of fuelling entrepreneurial endeavours. Those that are born into poor families will not have access to the resources that those who are born into more fortunate families will be. This is highlighted by the education and wellbeing levels that are typically seen amongst the poor. In poor families there is typically a child who is unable to attend school or is unable to make a satisfactory attempt at learning due to the family’s inability to provide appropriate resources. Instances like this result in high illiteracy rates amongst the poor. This, from the outset of the child’s life, ensures that their career will be significantly hampered and job finding will be far harder, if not impossible. A similar trap exists with regards to the malnourishment of typically poor people. Those who are undernourished will be drastically less productive at work and in turn, will find their wages decreasing. This creates a cycle whereby the poor aren’t able to afford......
