I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in the career field of Health Services Administration Management. I currently have a GPA of 3.46. I began working in the healthcare field as a Medical Records Clerk and after almost 10 years was promoted to an Administrative Assistant Supervisor. Although patient healthcare has always been important, I feel that the degree field of Health Services Administration Management is so important in today’s society because of the world of automation and the continued development of technology. I believe that the caring that was once involved with the administration side of healthcare has either been shown or is perceived to be less because patients today have less interaction with the administration and therefore do not receive that feeling of compassion. I am pursuing a degree in Health Services Administration Management because with my caring heart, I feel as though I would be able ensure that the patient and their family are happy and feel as if their needs are being met.

He went on to fight in may battles always come out of the fight victorious. When the US needed him the most they sent him to fight and the next year Jackson managed to stop a British assault on New Orleans. The fighting was hard but the US was able to win for many reasons. First of all they expected a large British naval force with twenty five thousand groung troop but in reality it was much less than once thought. They had dug in (literally dug into the ground) and had been preparing for a fight for days. The British had been ready because they poorly prepared their assault and failed on the most important of their attacks. Major General Andrew Jackson emerged victorious and he only lost thirteen and killed......

...Madalena Gonzalez English 101 July, 07, 2014 Prof. Mitchell Jackson There are two kinds of people who cry at your death, people who hated you and people who loved you. If you ask me…well sometimes through life experience we figure it out June 25th, 2009 a very hot day as the summer was trickling in. The sky was clear, the wind was blowing just enough to cool you down it was a quiet peaceful afternoon. Not a single soul outdoors I was walking home from school, and as I reached my apartment I went to my room enveloped in MJ posters. I quickly turned on the television to flip from channel to channel and nothing captured my attention except for one thing. I stopped at the news channel because I heard the strangest thing. “Michael Jackson was found dead this morning it seems to have been from an overdose of drugs”…What! I couldn’t believe it, MJ was gone, and at that moment I didn’t want to believe any of it. I didn’t want to accept the erratic news of Michael Jackson’s death. I was so astonished my mouth opened, my lips almost touching the floor. I couldn’t fathom the truth of MJ’S death. I began to look around he room at all of the posters. I turned over to the news only to hear the details of his death I heard, “Michael was found dead in his rented home in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, as he was preparing for a series of comeback music concerts at London’s...

Secondary Source Analysis of Stonewall Jackson

...award-winning author of the biographies of Stonewall Jackson and A. P. Hill and numerous books on the Civil War. In the follow up to his biography of the man, Robertson’s Stonewall Jacksons Book of Maxims serves as a guide to the inner hopes, ambitions and moral fiber of one of history’s most outstanding military leaders, “Stonewall” Jackson. On a wall, somewhere in the Virginia Military Institute is inscribed one of Jackson’s most important maxims, “You may be whatever you will resolve to be”. Robertson serves as the guide on a journey through what exactly it was that “Stonewall” Jackson intended to be, citing achievement, faith and his most important beliefs and values as proof of his iron clad resolve and will to be a better man. Jackson had read Lord Chesterfield and had decided that the latter was correct in the idea that with “the help of history, a young man may, in some instances, acquire the experience of old age…the more he is informed of what is past, the better he will know how to conduct himself for the future”. This idea, the young man possessing knowledge cumulative to that of a far more experienced man would play a part in Jackson’s quest for self-improvement. The maxim itself explaining that through work and the attainment of knowledge one that is unknowing can become knowing. Essentially, if we are but pictures of ourselves then these maxims served the sole purpose of filling the holes left in that picture by Jacksons mountain upbringing. The last and......

Andrew Jackson

...Andrew Jackson Essay Dr. Clark President Andrew Jackson Andrew Jackson was a self-made man. Jackson was the only president to symbolize another great generation. Andrew Jackson has his own age known as he “Jacksonian age. No other president could stand for their own age. President Jackson had enhanced many presidential powers through his tough personality, and how he was able to take on many challenges. He has strengthened the Democracy by vetoing countless bills, and paid the national debt. Jackson had also taken a huge role on the Indian removal act. The challenges “old hickory” faced were not easy and he was the one to be believed the strongest president. Andrew Jackson had strengthened the democracy in a few ways. One way he had strengthened the democracy is that Jackson believed “the president was the servant of the people” (page 114-115).This meant that he believed the people being served was to give them what they really desired and to keep them satisfied with his presidency. At first, Jackson didn’t believe he was fit to be president. He knew his ability could control a group of fighting men for battle, but Jackson never believed in his ability that he could take on and control an entire country. Although, he strongly believed the people of the country had the right to choose, so he encouraged voting rights. In the book “when people called it, it was the leaders duty to act upon the service” (67). Jackson had took the idea of becoming president into further......

...original essay my thoughts have changed but only in that I have grown more intrigued into the life of Alexie and his character Jackson Jackson from the story What You Pawn I Will Redeem. The thing that I found to be hardest about the rewriting of the essay was to substantially change the essay, and expand on it but to stay focused enough to give clear and concise subject matter for the topic at hand. The strengths of my new essay are that I was able to expand and elaborate on my previous work while the weakness may be that I was not as focused on the main subject topic as I would have like to have been. I did try to incorporate as much information that I could from the new resources that I found from JSTOR, EBSCO, ProQuest, and Google Scholar. I do think that I did pick great resources to gain insight into the mind of Mr. Sherman Alexie. I would like to know if the research that I chose to write about piqued more interest in the professor by my writing or if it was just more run of the mill. If my writing piqued an interest for her to want to find out more about Mr. Alexie then I will feel that my writing was good enough.

Stonewall Ind

...Question 1: In 2008 British Wallboard, the parent company of Stonewall has seen enough of the volatility in the Canadian construction materials market and sells the company to a competitor, US Corp. Its subsidiary, Canadian Wallboard, and Stonewall will merge into one organization. What are the benefits of the merger to British Wallboard? US Corp? Canadian Wallboard? Stonewall? (10 marks) The benefits of the merger to British Wallboard: Financial Benefits: The benefit to British Wallboard of the sale and subsequent merger is not having losses from poor market conditions for Stonewall Industries. British Wallboard may recognize some tax benefits from the sale of Stonewall Industries. The benefits of the merger to US Corp: Strategic Benefits: US Corp will benefit from the merger strategically by leveraging current customers of Stonewall Industries. As Canadian Wallboard is assumed to only operate in Canada similar to Stonewall Industries there is no benefit to opening in new markets internationally, or corporate venturing. Unless of course there is an international market – in which case having a larger presence in the Canadian market may make it more feasible to venture into the international markets. Becoming a larger more efficient company with a strengthening competitive position opens up the opportunity for more mergers and acquisitions of competitors, suppliers and/or customers. US Corp will benefit from operating synergies from combining the two companies...

Events

...Tragic events are those events that causes great abruption and powerful impact, which ends up having a universal response from all the people (Arkkelin & Veitch, 1995). These types of events could be hurricanes such as hurricane Katrina, volcano eruptions, floods, or even disasters that are totally unexpected such as the airplane crash of September 11, 2001. The analysis after this traumatic event underlines the understanding of how individuals perceive, respond, or change their behavior when facing global threats. The plane crash of 9/11 caused a fear of uncertainty and left individuals wounded in realization that, indeed everyone is exposed to vulnerability and that even within our comfort zone, it takes few seconds for our whole lives to turn upside down. The article chosen for this analysis is of Bornstein & Hendricks (2007), which talks about the stress responses that were faced by adolescent living in the Washington area. The article will include adolescent perception, personal characteristics, and maternal characteristics. The Theoretical Basis of the Article This article sheds light on unique perspective as few studies have examined the after effects of war or natural disaster on adolescence from an ecological point of view. This article concentrates on maternal characteristics, personal characteristics, as well as the perception of the adolescent towards the primary giver (Bornstein & Hendricks, 2007).

Andrew Jackson

...President Andrew Jackson was the first president not from the rich Aristocracy class. This means he was not born into the wealthy gentleman class as the prior presidents were. He was a man of the people and for the people and strongly believed in that motto. The road he took to the White House and the way he ran the country as President would change the country and democracy forever. Andrew Jackson was born on the frontier in South Carolina to a poor family. His Father died at a young age and his mother raise him and his brothers. At the age of 14 Jackson left to join the continental army to fight the British in the Revolutionary War(23) Meachem. Him and his brothers were captured by the British and put into a prison camp and treated very poorly. His brothers were killed in this camp and coming out of it he developed a strong hatred toward the British. Also his mom was killed while serving as a nurse for the Army so he was an orphan after the War and travelled from family to family. Growing up poor and having bad experiences with the British as a young kid will affect his policies as president. Jackson became a successful lawyer in Tennessee and made a name for himself and became very wealthy. He was elected the general of the Tennessee volunteer Army at the time of the Battle of 1812(67) Meachem. His most impressive accomplishment was his victory at the......
