The best advice I have received was the advice from my mom who said " everything thing happens for good". My mothers advice was so true and applicable . It gave me hope that when bad things happened to me or things don't turn out the way I want them because of my mom's advice I understood it was is for a reason. I followed it also because through out my life it was easy to find situations where I could get upset. Since I was a little girl I heard my mom say "everything happens for Good" I heard her say it both for the good and the bad things that happened. hearing her telling me this when she saw me upset made me put it in my mind and apply it in my everyday life. Finding myself in small situations being mad like missing the bus to get to school or being rejected by a friend, I remember always getting mad at myself , people or even God. The time I applied for a job and after waiting two weeks for interview I was mad because I didn't the new job. This days thanks to God I have been changed because my mom' advice was so true and applicable. Now rather than just worrying myself why things always don't work out as I expected I learned not to give in or give up easily in every situations I found myself in but always I try to see beyond what is in front of me or try to focus on the positive sides of situations as they saying goes " you can either think the cup is half full or half empty". The best counsel that I got from my mother when I connected it with what I read on the bible where it says in new testament "Give thanks in all circumstances" . I really believed that all things happens for a reason and that gave me hope. I was just wondering, pondering and thinking all the good and bad things that happened in my life. Even more I was just thinking about the good and bad things that happen in people lives and how even though at times it is very difficult to…...

As for Spears, she's kept mum on the topic. Her tweets have instead been about "The X Factor" as well as the upcoming campaign for her Fantasy Twist perfume. But then again, she also hasn't tweeted about the ongoing court battle her parents are in with her shady ex-manager, Sam Lufti. People magazine reports that Spears — who remains under the legal control of her father and her fiancé, Jason Trawick — is "aware of the trial but isn't really asking questions." Although Lufti lived with her in 2007, Spears "doesn't remember" much about him "but knows that he didn't act in her best interest."...

Best Prom Ever

...“Best Prom Ever” When I was in 4th year high school, I had so much fun in our prom night. I’m so grateful because it gave me good memories that will be unforgettable for me. Our prom started with an entourage. I’m nervous that time because I’m thinking that I might not do it well. But luckily, I passed on it with my partner. Then, many other ceremonies followed such as the opening ceremony, invocation, singing of the national anthem and the school hymn, turn over ceremony of seniors to the juniors, and next is what everyone’s waiting for, the awarding. I really expected that I would be the Ms.Senior. But when the MC announced the Ms.Senior, I heard that it was a different name, in short, it wasn’t me. So I am really frustrated. But suddenly, I heard the MC already announcing the Queen of the Night, he called my name! I can’t believe that it was me. I just noticed it when my friends also called me and teased me. I thought it was just a dream. Then I went to the stage, I’m still shocked and I’m out of myself. I saw everyone’s looking at me while they’re smiling. I’m happy because no one says or even thinks that I don’t deserve it. Just a few minutes afterwards, the Seniors’ special number started. I’m in front because I’m one of the good dancers. I danced gracefully and confidently. I think it is also the effect of being the Queen of the Night. I just can’t move on. And last in the program, the “dance dance party…”. Party songs are played first. So everyone is on the......

The Best War Ever

...The Best War Ever Michael C.C. Adams History has a way of being distorted and viewed unrealistically at times. Because every event and emotion cannot be perfectly recorded, myths and false perspectives are created. In his book, “The Best War Ever,” Adams explains how Americans believed World War II was a clean, glorious and courageous victory, when in reality it was not. The era became viewed as “America's golden age, a peak in the life of society when every thing worked out and the good guys definitely got a happy ending" (Adams, 2). Besides the general population's idea that the United States was saving the day by going to war, the main tool of distorting the reality of war was propaganda. The “greatness” of this war spread so quickly, “the censors hardly needed to tell the film producers that war movies should showcase American heroism and patriotism and that the enemy must be cruel, devious, and unprincipled” (Adams, 11). The impact of the media's spinning the war lead to a positive demeanor in the nation, eventually proving the propaganda to be a necessary evil. World War II, for America, was a testament to the work and reward of the American dream. The media portrayed society during the war as succesful, hard working, and finally coming out of the slumps brought on by the Great Depression. In line with the “melting pot” stereotype of America, people from all ethnicities were fighting for our country (Adams, 11). After the recession, Americans needed a common......

Best Thing Ever Happened to Me

...thing that has ever happened to me is when I got accepted to a university. Some people don’t understand how much difference a good education makes. It opens your eyes to a wider world. It helps you understand things you never understood before. It gives you opportunities for a better life that you would never have had without the education. But education isn’t enough how many PhD degree you get , your heart I till no different than anyone else’s. We’re all still basically selfish, out for what we can get, focused on taking care of just us, and making the best life for ourselves we can. The reason why education doesn’t solve everything is because we have a heart problem, not a head problem. I can have all the education I want, but if my heart is not a good, one I will never be successful in life. So get another degree. Fill your head with more knowledge, but remember to also fill your heart. My major is Business Administration and I dream of having my own business one day, a business where I can make other people feel better about them self, make them feel like they are in place where at that moment nothing matters but their happiness, where problems and worries are outside not inside. Everything started when I was little, my family has hotels in peru and I always admired them for that. At the age of 16, I started working at Marriot Hotel as a receptionist, later on I got a job as a hostess in The Ritz Carlton Hotel, it was one of the most important jobs I have ever had......

Advices for Best Education

...Different Views and Advices from the World’s Educators BY SOPHIKO TSOTSKOLAURI AND HICHAM LEFNAOUI October 23, 2014 was a busy day for students at Peking University HSBC Business School, trying to get as much as possible from the experienced and well-known educators from universities all over the world as they participated in the Global Dean’s Forum. We managed to interview educators from the USA, Brunei and Norway. Alison Davis-Blake, born in Palo Alto, California, USA is  Dean of the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. Davis-Blake is the school’s first female dean, and at the time of her appointment she was the highest-ranking female dean at any U.S. business school. When asked about what more the Chinese educational system needs, she responded that the most beneficial aspects to any business schools are diverse students and engagement in the classroom. More exposure to diversity, more active study abroad, increasing the number of international students studying in China and engagement in the classroom where people are actively involved in dialogue, will be helpful to build excellence and action-based learning. However, Davis-Blake thinks it’s a mistake to blindly adopt anything from another culture without considering whether it fits and its impact on the Chinese educational system. So, part of the purpose of the conferences and forums like the GDF is to share ways of approaching education, so that Chinese universities can adapt...

Best Food Ever

...5/2/2014 Lauren Shea The best Crème Caramel in the world If you could have any dessert for your lunch or dinner, what would you have? Would you have a piece of cupcake, an ice cream or a chocolate candy bar? To me, the most important reason that I chose crème caramel for my desserts because crème caramel is my favorite food and it always reminds me of my sister, who gives me food and prepare the food I love. My sister is a perfect one. She is the one who knows me best. My sister and I even have many of the same interests, which include making food. My sister knows how to take care of herself and others. She enjoys cooking so much. She always tells me: “If you love someone, don’t say it. Just prove it. Action speaks louder than word”. So, making food is the way she shows her love. Honestly, she is not the one who usually cooks food in my family, but when she does, her food is really delicious. She always knows what I like and makes me happy by making food for me, especially crème caramel. We are all known that crème caramel originated in Ancient Roman times and it was one of their first recipes to be made with eggs. At first it was not a sweet dish but it was savory one. By the time, people changed the way to make crème caramel better and fit their taste. My sister’s dish is totally different from everyone else. She makes her own recipes and her crème caramel is always good. It’s the best crème caramel in the world that I have ever eaten. ......

The Best Cover Letter I Ever Received

...The Best Cover Letter I Ever Received Harvard Business Review – David Silverman - 1:18 PM Monday June 15, 2009 In my last post I talked about how to make your résumé more likely to catch the attention of a hiring manager. As a follow up, I'd like to discuss cover letters. Here's my basic philosophy on them: don't bother. That's because the cover letters I see usually fall into one of three categories: The recap: The résumé in prose form. It's redundant, harder to read than the résumé, and provides no additional insight. The form letter: This says, essentially, "Dear Sir or Madam: I saw your ad in the paper and thought you might like me." And it's clearly a form letter where maybe they got my name and company right. If they're lucky, I will still take the time to read their résumé after being insulted with a form letter. The "I'm crazy": This one's rare, and it expands on the résumé of experience with some personal insights. Examples range from the merely batty ("I find batik as an art form has taught me to become both a better person and project manager.") to the truly terrifying ("I cast a pentagram hex and the central line pointed towards your job listing. I know you will find this as comforting as I do.") There are really only a few times to use a cover letter: 1. When you know the name of the person hiring 2. When you know something about the job requirement 3. When you've been personally referred (which might include 1 and 2) Under those......

The Best Holiday Ever

...The best holiday ever My best holiday was when I went to San Diego, California with my family. When my dad told me I was very exited, because it was going to be my first time in the United State of America. I took a month break of school and went to America with my family. I was going to see some members of my family, who I had never met before in my whole live. I was exited to see my family and on the other hand I was exited to see America. We flew in the morning. I can not tell why, but I have always enjoyed getting up in the morning and getting ready to drive to the airport. I can not explain the feeling I get, but there is one thing I know, it is a wonderful feeling. The flight was nine hours long. I was tired when we arrived in the airport in San Diego, California. We took our suitcases and left the airplane. I saw some people waving to us, I knew immediately that they were from my family. It was one of the best parts of the holiday. I had never met them before, so I was a little bit shy in the beginning, but I overcame the feeling, after we arrived at their home. The first day we relaxed because we were tired. The next day we went to museums and took a lot of pictures. There was a guide, who told us everything about the tings in the museums. It was instructive. I love to be at museums, that is the best thing I know. Some days after we went to the beach. It was a huge beach with thousands of people. There were people from Denmark, Germany and many other......

The Best Paper Ever Written

...The Plant Location Puzzle 1. Should EDC proceed with the Asian market opportunity? I believe that EDC should proceed with the Asian market opportunity because the saturation point has been almost been reached in the U.S. which means that there is not much room for EDC to expand and grow as a company if they only stay within the U.S. If they move to Asia, there is a growing middle class able to purchase the bikes because they have a more disposable income. 2. If they are going to proceed with the Asian opportunity, where should they locate and why? I think that they should relocate to Taiwan if they proceed with the Asian opportunity, because of Taiwan’s many different resources and better infrastructure. This would ensure that power outages would not be as common as in China. The roads and waterways would be less contaminated if at all, which would allow a potential facility to run more efficiently and at a more eco-friendly level. Taiwan also has a decent-sized population, resulting in a large available workforce. 3. Which part of their business (marketing, production, design/engineering) should be located at their new location? I believe that the new location should focus on production. With all of the resources available at a moment’s notice because of a larger market, production is not slowed when waiting for materials. Also, if the production is done there, money can be saved by not having to ship the materials back and forth between facilities. Each bike can......

My Best Day Ever

...My Best Day Ever       It seems to me that birthday celebrations’ become less interesting as time passes. There are no more party hats, balloons, cake, ice cream, and the joyful sound of “Happy Birthday.” I guess that’s why we hold all the good memories inside our heart, so whenever there’s a bad issue that may come up, we can reminisce on the past. In fact, birthday celebrations in my family were rare because my grandmother was raising eight children in a three bedroom house by herself, and she wasn’t able to provide certain things we needed at times. I do remember one special birthday that made me realize how important family means to me.       On March 22, 1979, it was a warm, beautiful, breezy, summer day, and I could hear the chirping of baby birds in their nest. Upon my face shined the bright sun through my bedroom window. This day represented my birth right of turning fourteen years old, and I needed to figure out what to wear on this special occasion. As I walked toward my closet door, there was a breeze of warm spring sunflowers gathering in each corner of my bedroom. As I inhaled this delightful smell, I thought of my favorite sunflower dress to wear. The length went below my knees and it had two straps on each shoulder. The base color of my dress was pure white cotton material with medium sunflowers patterns around the bottom. I chose my flat flip-flop scandals and brushed my hair into a ponytail with a white ribbon tied in a bow. At that moment in my life, I......
