Never thought it could happen
It was a cold fall morning with a light layer of snow on the ground from last night and I was ready to get the day going. I was out hunting this morning with my brother hoping that we were going to get the deer to fill our tags. We split up like we always do. I Went to the swamp he went to the feild. On my way there I was seeing what I thought were bobcat tracks but I didn't worry about it so I went checked to see if there was any markings in the near by tree line, Except there was nothing but another foot print in the trees behind the left side bank. There was nothing that was looking like there was anything that resembled a deer track to a scuf mark on any of the trees near the bank but when I got back from the scan of the area I heard a scraping so I stood still and i sat in the swamp. Then it was nothing that was heard from the scraping until I got back into the tree stand. When the scraping started again I went and started to work the sounds out andthink to of what it could be. I was about 100 yards away from the stand. I started to see that there was bark from trees that had been ripped off so went down to the bay of the swamp. I started see that there was tracks of deer but there were also prints that never seen before. It had the look of a dog but the tracks end on the far left side of the swamp were I couldn't go. I saw movement in the bush that was near the stand where my brother gutted his deer I had a idea what the animal might be so went to see if there was any way that there was a way that I couldn't an idea what the animal was than I had an idea. I went up where i the guts were there was only the intestine left, I looked up and saw the tail of the animal i rounded it up that the animal was a bobcat. I went to the house i yelled to my brother to grap his 30 odd six and I grabbed my 12 gauge. Before we went back out…...

James James 1 Instructor Fertig English 111 November 2, 2010 Never Ending Battle ------------------------------------------------- There was a time when having an education was not that high of an importance if you chose to enlist in the Armed Forces. Recruiter could have cared less if an individual were to gain any additional skills or education. Times have changed, recruiting of quality men and women for today's military plays an important role in today's society. Which regularly criticizes versus embracing and encouraging it. Allowing recruiting keeps America from a nightmare waiting to happen. A military draft, the results of recruitment produces productive contributors faster than college. The programs available in the military are miles ahead of the competition. ------------------------------------------------- Recruitment for the Armed Forces has built a powerful nation of the United States. Discouraging and limiting the access that recruiters need could eventually lead to the country going to shambles because it has been invaded so many times. This will then cause drastic measure such as a military draft is basically taking a person and having them to do something against their will. The drafting in previous conflicts were different due to the fact the Americans were more patriotic.

Hate Crimes and Why They Happen

...Hate Crimes and Why They Happen Allison M Thompson Hate Crimes and Why They Happen The Matthew Sheppard Law also known as Hate Crime legislation was created by the powers that be in an effort to deter criminals from committing hate crimes. This legislation was voted into law in April 2009 in a vote of 246 to 175; its purpose was to prevent crimes that were being committed against people because of their race, color, or national origin. Such criminal activity is motivated by bias that is different from other criminal acts. These criminal acts include crimes against gays, crimes against blacks and also crimes against Hispanic’s. All of this crime is committed in ways that are different from other types of assaults. One such example would be the crime of Beaner Hopping; this is a crime against Hispanic’s, where bored young white male will go out in search of young Hispanic male to harass. Such crimes as beaner hopping are committed to send message to their victim. In a hate crime the victim is rarely robbed and in most cases racist’s symbols are used. These crime are very personal in nature, the burning of a cross on the front lawn of a black family or the swastika that is painted on a synagogue are not only personal crimes but also harmful in nature. It has been said that because the First Amendment gives every American the right to speak freely it doesn’t give any American to right to hurt another human because he doesn’t care for his or her natural origin.

Love Is Never Silent

...Deaf Event For my American Sign Language class I needed to attend some type of Deaf event. The event I chose was the showing of Love is Never Silent on October 22nd from 6-8pm in Wiley Hall at the University of Minnesota. Love is Never Silent is a very touching and powerful television movie from 1985. This movie can help the hearing world get a look at what it is like to have family members that are Deaf. This movie was also probably an inspiration for Deaf people by how relatable it could be to their life. The movie follows Margaret, a child of Deaf parents, through childhood until she is a grown adult. During the stages of Margaret’s life depicted through the movie I learned new information about Deaf culture and was able to make many comparisons between Deaf and hearing culture. The movie begins with Margaret’s mother sewing in their tiny apartment while Margaret and her younger brother are goofing around. The father arrives home and shortly after a man shows up at the apartment and knocks on the door. The parents cannot hear the door so Margaret is left to not only answer the door, but also deal with the man at the door who tries to speak to her parents first, only for Margaret to necessarily intervene later. The man is taking Mother’s sewing machine; she is no longer allowed to work at home and must work in the factory. This is where I first noticed differences in Deaf and hearing culture. The mother worked at home because it was easier and more comfortable for her...

Never Forget

...the daylight make giant shiny cobwebs of the treetops. The sun had not yet risen and a mist lay over the ground, which made the forest seem rather spooky to him. His nose itched and he longed to scratch it, maybe just nudge it a little, but Pa said don’t move, don’t twitch , don’t even breathe hard. Not one arm, one hand, even one finger, he said. “He knows the woods,” Pa told him; “you’ll never know he’s there; suddenly he’ll just be there looking at you, just looking.” It started so long ago, Tommy remembered, almost a year, when he was just eleven. That night, in the hen-yard, with the weasel’s eyes glistening in the flashlight. He never even fired a shot, just stood there with his mouth open, foolish, while the weasel dashed into the woods. And Pa knocking the rifle from his hands and asking, “Why didn’t you shoot? What you waiting on? What’s wrong with you, boy?” “Pa, I . . . I couldn’t, Pa. I just couldn’t.” Pa hunkered down and pulled on a blade of grass. He didn’t say anything for a minute, just knelt there chewing on that grass. “You never did like to kill nothing did you, boy? Even when you was small.” Tommy looked at the ground with out saying anything and his father sighed, “Tommy, dammit, a man always dies a little when he kills something, but it just plain has to be done. Some animals just ain’t no damn good and got the be killed. Understand?” He nodded without answering, still looking at the ground, and Pa stood......

Crap Happens

...Crap Happens People have always preached to me that we all have a sole purpose in life and “everything happens for a reason”. I detest this saying and I hate to admit that it’s true. Everything does happen for reason. We endure so much crap throughout our lives to build us into the people we are supposed to be. Even the smallest events make us stronger; they keep us grounded by bringing our minds back to reality… What a concept, crap happening for our benefit. I’ve learned that life isn’t a fairy tale; it’s more like a boxing ring. Your opponent throws the punches and you either block the punch or your face plummets to the floor with a single hit. Crap happens though, we have no control over that but, we do have control over the will to pick ourselves up by our “boot straps” and keep on rolling with the hits otherwise we’re giving up on everything that we have endured to get where we are now. In 1997 eight hundred and thirty-nine children were reported molested.1 Two little girls I once knew were not on those records, however. They were molested by their godfather in the summer of ‘97 when the girls were only four and six-years-old. Author Edward Rowan, M.D., states that “younger children with fewer defenses and underdevelopment coping strategies are more susceptible to negative aftereffects and may even show significant impairment in personality development”.2 Ever since then they have both been completely changed. Before they were stripped of their innocence life was much......

Something I Thought I Could Never Do

...Something I thought I could never do “You can’t do this. You are not strong enough. Do it again, and again. Again, until it is perfect, for me, not anyone else. Become stronger, show everyone they were wrong!” I repeatedly say this in my head until I can finally pull myself together to prove what I have. Someone once told me that I could not do what those other girls could, that they were better than I was, that it will take a long time for me to become as good as they are. Moreover, you know what I did. I had proved them all wrong. I proved them wrong with anger, fear and courage. I was ready to become great! My head was pounding. My heart was pumping. My ears were raging with steam. My eyes were blood shot red. I had felt every emotion of anger that night. So many familiar, and unfamiliar faces of athletes who were turning my hopes into nightmares only to satisfy their hunger of feeling in control just because they are better than I am. “I wouldn’t try that trick, you don’t have the skill composition for this high level of skill”, one girl told me. “Watch me” I spat. More and more girls kept coming at me with discouraging words and I did nothing but stand my ground and use my words like a bullet to think I am achieving some kind of control for myself. I stood there with the thoughts of their comments repeatedly in my head, still with rage coming from within me. With everything I had, I ran across the blue mat, left foot propped up, and arms next to......

By Definition, Miracles Can Never Happen. Discuss.

...definition a miracle can never happen.” Discuss. The known definition of a miracle is “an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.” However, Peter Vardy in The Puzzle of God gave four different definitions provided by many different scholars, including Aquinas and Hume, with Hume believing they are impossible but cannot be disproved compared to Aquinas believing they are completely possible even within the system of natural activity. What a miracle is can be debated forever due to the many different interpretations of who and why they come about, with psychologists such as Freud arguing they are just an illusion and Wiles arguing that miracles do exist but not as a result of God’s will. The real question is whether the laws of nature can ever be broken and to that affect – do miracles define themselves into non-existence? The definition of a miracle provided by Hume is “a transgression of the laws of nature brought about by the volition of a deity.” He believes that miracles are simply an interposition by some invisible agent, but he however goes on to challenge this definition with his theoretical case miracles which argued that the laws of nature we experience are constant and therefore cannot be changed, In response to this, as the laws of nature cannot be defied, (if they could be broken they would not be laws), by Hume’s definition, miracles can never happen, as laws of nature......

Never Event

...CMS AND HOSPITAL REINBURSMENT FOR NEVER EVENTS Never Events are errors in medical care that are of concern to both the public and healthcare professionals, and providers. The term "Never Event" was first introduced in 2001 by Ken Kizer, MD, former CEO of the National Quality Forum (NQF), in reference to particularly shocking medical errors such as wrong-site surgery that should never occur (Rosenthal 2012). The CMS issued new rules in 2008 that halt payment to hospitals for treatment of preventable patient complications and injuries, which referred to as “Never Events”. Ten categories of hospital-acquired condition that are reasonably preventable were identify by CMS (ECRI 2008). These are pressure ulcer stages III and IV; falls and trauma; surgical site infection after bariatric surgery for obesity, certain orthopedic procedures, and bypass surgery ,vascular- catheter associated infection; catheter-associated urinary tract infection; administration of incompatible blood; air embolism; and foreign object unintentionally retained after surgery All these are preventable conditions and are subject to nonpayment. This rule that halt payment to hospitals for preventable patient complication and injuries, has tremendous effect on hospital nursing practice. (Herb 2009). As the public becomes aware of the new CMS rules, legal concern have been raise about an increase in malpractice claims related to hospital acquired conditions. Strict liability imposes legal responsibility for...

One Day I Could Never Forget

...One Day I Could Never Forget Christina Behm COMM/215 09/01/2015 Glenn Dayley One Day I Could Never Forget There I was sitting in my car, rewinding the day in my head like a video on slow rewind. Today was my first day as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) and I bolted through the doors excited about my new job, only to have been meet in the face with a stench that you could not deny that was of urine and feces. My first reaction was to throw up, I thought how can these people breathe in here? Do they change these people? Give them showers? Surely something had to be done about the smell. When I asked, I was told I would get used to it. To me, I didn’t understand why or how we could let our elders smell like that. If they refused a shower, then to me we should be giving them a bed bath. The patients needed some form of cleaning daily. I had 13 patients on my list to get up for breakfast and shower or bed bath before breakfast. I started on my list, only to find that if I wanted things done right then it takes a lot longer than the allotted time. So that means that some of the 13 patients that are awake in the morning more than half of them do not receive proper care. You are rushed from the minute you clock in until you clock out. Still not finishing everything that needed to be done. I finished with breakfast, one of my ladies didn’t get up for breakfast, so after breakfast I went in to check on her and I couldn’t get any response from her. I flagged down the DON......

Never Again

...Never Again I’ve had enough. Why am I living like this when I don’t have to? I have my own life to live. There’s no reason as to why you, my own father, can control me. I might only be 12 but I can make my own decisions. “Hey Dad, can I go to lunch with Mum?” At this point I was cheerful and enjoying my morning… Well that changed quickly. I didn’t know what I’d done. He lost it. I only asked to go to lunch, what’s the big deal? He was completely mad at me. He was yelling at me until he got in the car and screamed out the driveway. My brother had no idea what he could do to help. Neither of us had ever seen Dad like this. I was a complete mess; my eyes were red and puffy and had tears pouring down my cheeks. Everything hurt. I was scared and upset. I had no idea what to do. How was I supposed to know what to do? I was only 12. I walked back to my room after yet another argument with Dad. For all I know he is oblivious to what or how I feel. Why shouldn’t he be? Yes he’s my dad but I can’t speak my thoughts. Everything has been kept in for too long. I was only just holding together. It was Dad’s weekend to have me but I wanted to go to lunch with mum. I’m not sure what happened to him the night before, or whether it was just his feelings and emotions that had built up over the years, but what I asked must’ve been the last straw. He lost it. He took it all out on me. I could hear the tyres coming back down the gravel driveway. I got up and sat outside on the...

Never Free, Never Me

...aim was now "to enliven morality with wit, and to temper wit with morality […] to bring philosophy out of the closets and libraries, schools and colleges, to dwell in clubs and assemblies, at tea-tables and coffeehouses"). Constructive criticism of novels had until then been rare.[note 15] The first treatise on the history of the novel had appeared as a preface to a novel, Marie de La Fayette's Zayde (1670). Journals devoted to the sciences could not easily switch to devote themselves to belles lettres,[58] and a distinct secondary discourse developed with a wave of entertaining new journals like The Spectator and The Tatler at the beginning of the century. New "literary journals" like Gotthold Ephraim Lessing's Briefe, die neuste Literatur betreffend (1758) added to this production in the middle of the century with the offer of new, scientific reviews of art and fiction. By the 1780s, reviews constituted a new marketing platform for fiction, and authors and publishers recognized it as such. One could write to satisfy the old market or one could address the authors of secondary criticism and gain an audience through their discussions. It would take yet another generation for the novel to arrive in the curricula of school and university education. By the end of the 18th century, the public perception of the place of a particular novel was no longer supplied simply by social status and fashionable geographical provenance, but by critical media attention....

...and objectivity in an external audit. The AICPA Code of Professional Conduct ET 101, “Independence,” requires auditors be independent of their audit clients, and ET 102, “Integrity and Objectivity,” requires them to conduct their audit with integrity and objectivity. All too often, however, the auditor must request information from individuals who are directly responsible for the information’s creation and maintenance. The level of integrity and objectivity in the audit process could be increased if the auditor was able to request information directly from the RIM function independent of the individuals with custodial responsibility. Further, auditors spend time simply locating information and those who have access to information. The RIM function is potentially a single organizational source of information, of knowledge regarding who has access to information, and of organizational policies associated with information usage and internal controls. The resources required to gather audit information could be greatly reduced if the RIM function served as the primary contact for external auditors. Conclusion Financial statement audits are a statutory requirement for publicly traded organizations. Financial statement audits are often required by financial institutions or other stakeholders for privately held organizations. This article crossreferences Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles® and Generally Accepted Auditing Standards to show how the Principles positively affect......

Never Been

...When you think about it, there isn’t a day that goes by without being tempted. Temptation comes along our paths every day in our lives. Whether it is from the foods we eat, the people we talk to, or the choices we make, knowing that sometimes they aren’t right. This is why the rapper Logic decided to inspire, or rather uplift, any of his audience going through some adversities or rough patches in life, in his song “Never Been”. Throughout his song, he uses countless examples of how he overcame adversities of his own and is reassuring that immoral temptation is challenging but he believes that we can all overcome it. Logic opens this song with the lyrics, “I’ve been workin’ like I’ve never been, I struggle everyday but I just can’t let the devil in”. Logic is saying how he recognizes how difficult it is to refrain from temptation and how he learned from every situation he has been in. We not only deal with our personal demons, but we also come in contact with outside demons such as the environment that we are put in and by some people perceiving to be the devil to destroy us. In these lyrics right here, Logic is saying we struggle everyday but we can’t let anything or anyone distract us from what we want. These demons, whether internal or external, try to corrupt us but he wants us to know that we are not alone. Immediately after these lyrics, Logic raps “And if I knew back then what I know right now, what I know right now, I’d be better than I’ve ever been, better than......

Why Do Revolutions Happen?

...Explain why revolutions happen? Use one example. There is no possible way of reliably defining why revolutions happen. However it is possible to outline the main causal variables. The relevant factors are: socio-economic structures; short term economic circumstances; the existence of political opposition; the capacity of governments to deal with it. Though saying these are the causes would make it grossly-oversimplified and even though they are separate here it is not just black and white, there are also shades of grey. In broad term it is necessary to distinguish between background factors and the precipitants of revolutionary action. Anachronistic socio-economic structures in war time Russia contributed to the start of the revolution. The Russian population was incredibly backwards and trapped within archaic structures. A whole 70% of the Russian population was illiterate. There was very little education, medical relief or general public health. This was compounded by widespread vodka addiction. They had only extremely primitive tools to work with when trying to make a living on agricultural produce. To strike was considered mutiny and there was no press to help them get their message across to the tsar. This meant they had to be radicalized if they wanted change, for any action they could have made would have been illegal. Antiquated socio-economic organization is clearly a main factor in causing revolutions. Short term economic circumstances compounded this backward......
