154-174. doi:10.1007/s11162-009-9149-4

This research study provides insights on the student’s success from three cohorts of freshmen students from a single institution. The research was conducted with a sample of 15,496 full time students during the years 1999-2001, Research of Higher Education, (2010). Using the Student Tracker Service they were able to identify the factors of student success. Considering multiple variables they modeled a four category outcome that led them to the limitations of the study. The results of the study include the generalizability of results, limited number of variables, source of information was not completed, and models did not establish a more complete pattern of enrollment. The authors agree that further work needs to be done in order to assess student success. This study reveals the advantages and disadvantages students have when enrolling in an institution for the first time, especially when their first choice is not given. It is necessary to understand the problems students face when they first enter an institution.

Identify Two Microeconomics and Two Macroeconomics

...• Identify two microeconomics and two macroeconomics principles or concepts from the simulation. Explain why you have categorized these principles or concepts as macroeconomic or microeconomic. o Microeconomics Principals: Scenario 1: In one of the first scenarios it talks about decreasing the rent to lower the vacancy percentage and maximize revenue for the company putting the focus on supply and demand. This would be a temporary fix on a month-to-month basis. o Microeconomics Principals: Scenario 4: Here the company is talking about a new company coming to town and increase the population along with jobs, and suggest they increase rental rates in response to the increase in demand. Not only would this apply to vacant apartments but to the renewal of leases as well. o Macroeconomics Principals: Scenario 3; in this scenario it brings up Atlantis Housing Survey statistics on a demand as a whole. It showed that individuals working in Atlantis are living in neighboring cities due to the rent being less. o Macroeconomics Principals: Scenario 7: The government steps in and puts a ceiling of $1550 on monthly rent for 2 bedroom apartments so that middle class families can afford to live in the city in which they work in. So the company decides to rent only a portion of their apartment’s in order to make a profit due to maintenance cost and so forth. • Identify at least one shift of the supply curve and one shift of the demand curve in the simulation.

Operate a Two (Two Wheels Only)

...OPERATE A TWO (Two Wheels Only) As I watch, the transparent sunbeams shining through the cloud as they make their way toward the ground. I can feel the oppressive heat in the air and witness the innocent water vaporizes. I think to myself, “This is perfect! Sun, Sun, and more Sun.” I climb aboard the giant beast Suzuki GsxR-1000 to make a final preparation for my journey. As I push the start button and the bike roaring to life, the power vibrates my seat at first and then settles into a soft rumble. I navigate my way through the clutch until I am in the right gear. I engage the throttle and hang on for a fun ride! As I put on the Icon lifejacket and tighten the thick black straps, I remind myself to stay calm and not to made stupid or impulsive decision during my journey. It’s easy to lose track of reality when I push myself off the limits. I need to remember to respect the other operators, the Mother Nature and myself before I take the roaring bike out on the road. First, I always keep in mind that other drivers are not looking for me. Most people literally don’t see me, because they’re so used to looking for gigantic moving objects. It’s for this reason that so many sightless drivers just seem to pull out in front of me. When I’m out on the road, I always drive super defensively because I know that I’m practically invisible to everyone else. A single mistake can have my brain splattered all over the pavements. Another problem I will counter, other than reckless fellow......

Two People Two Problems with Behavior

...Kellie Whitmore Psy 100 Feb. 22, 2013 Ms. Eyre Two People Two Problems with Behavior Jamie and John are suffering from so many problems in life right now, they are overwhelmed and want to tune everyone out and be left alone. Jamie and John feel isolated even though they are doing this to themselves, they do not see any other option because they have reached their limit on dealing with stress and now they are just reacting. When life becomes unmanageable we should seek the help we need to be able to deal with things as they come and not be swallowed up with stress. As Jamie’s friend, to help her relieve some of her symptoms I would watch her child at least one night each week for several hours and then send her to bed to get some much needed sleep. Her sleep deprivation is making an already tenuous situation much. I would be available to listen to Jamie when she needed to talk so she could get some of her stress off of her. I would suggest to Jamie that she contact the local mental health center to set up a free or low cost appointment to see a therapist so she could get some professional help and find some much needed relief. I would encourage Jamie to spend time with close friends and family because withdrawing from familiar and much loved friends and family will only succeed in making her 2 feel more overwhelmed, research suggests that spending time with those close to you is actually a good way to relieve stress. To help Jamie not feel so......

Two Kinds

...“Two Kinds”, By Amy Tan In “Two Kinds” (Tan, 206) Suyuan; mother, and June Mei; daughter are mother and daughter who struggle to find a common ground on many things. Suyuan is a Chinese immigrant from China. Suyuan arrived in America after losing everything. This includes, “mother, father, family home, first husband, and two twin daughters”. (Tan, 206) Even after all that was lost, she knew her decision to go to America was the right one. She now has a new life, a new husband, and a new daughter; June Mei. Suyuan has high expectations of her daughter. She had such a fascination with young white girls in film that she would try and force that image onto her daughter. Unfortunately, the results left her daughter looking like a “Negro Chinese” (Tan, 206) With all of the emulating forced on her daughter; the strive to be exceptional, June Mei didn’t want to be that. She just wanted to be normal. When her mother put her in piano classes, June did her best to not be good at it. June Mei didn’t want to be genius. She felt that her mother didn’t like her the way she was. Suyuan became so angry that she slapped June Mei. She accused her daughter of being ungrateful. I don’t think June Mei understood all that was sacrificed by her mother so that she could live a live with plenty of opportunity. “Two Kinds” for Suyuan meant, “Two kinds of daughters’, she said, “Those who are obedient, and those who follow their own mind”. (Tan, 211) Suyuan only wanted one kind......

Two Dads Two Moms

...Eric Abeyta B.J. Sunnanborg English 090 April 28, 2014 Two Moms or Two Dads Should gays and lesbians be granted the right to adopt a child? Today's view of gays and lesbians is drastically different than it was in the past. As more people "come out of the closet" gays and lesbians are becoming more socially accepted. They currently are battling for equality in a variety of areas. The most common areas are choosing to adopt a child and the impact that might have on themselves as well as the child and equal marriage. There are three main ways that gays and lesbians are raising children and acquiring families without the courts becoming involved. The first way, which is also the most common way, is when heterosexual marriages dissolve after one parent apparently "comes out." With this situation, as long as there isn't a messy custody battle in court most often the child is raised by the gay or lesbian parent, and is also fully aware of his or her parent's sexual tendencies. The second method is lesbians receiving artificial insemination. Estimates of the number of children born to lesbians through artificial insemination range in the tens of thousands. Lastly, there is one of the newer methods: gays and lesbians going into an agreement with each other to produce a child. In some cases they share duties and custody in raising the child. In other cases the men or women avoid any attachment with the child at all (Bernard, T. S.). Lesbian and gay......

Two Question

...“Two Questions,” by Lynda Barry, is a short story about believing in yourself and your work. Barry talks about something that everyone goes through sometimes in their lives. We all criticize ourselves trying to please others. Criticizing ourselves will only lower our self confidence. Lynda Barry teaches us not to care about others opinion and do what makes us happy. If we try to please others’ then we’ll never be happy. While reading the story, I realized that I used to ask the same two questions as Lynda Barry when I finished my work. The two questions Barry asks are, “Is this good? Does this suck?" (168). Throughout middle school and some parts of high school, I used to always second guess myself by asking these two questions. I would rely on others’ opinion. I didn’t think that it was good enough until someone else told me it was. “But the two questions find everybody” (Barry, 170). Just like me, you might find yourself asking these same questions. You might also find yourself asking these questions to others. You might rely on others opinion more than your own. You might trust their opinions more then you trust your own. This text agrees with the view I have of the world. Our society cares more about others opinion than their own. “As, for bad drawings, I tried my best not to ever make them”. We try to please others more than ourselves. That is how our society works. We believe in others more than we believe in ourselves. “For the next 30 years I chased......

Princeton, NJ: Princeton UP, 2012. Print. Jack Zipes is an American Professor of German who lectures and publishes about fairy tales, their evolution, and their social and political role in civilizing processes. He believes that fairy tales serve a very social meaning. He also believes that women had a very powerful impact on fairy tales by focusing on paintings, drawings, etc. This particular book focuses more on the cultural and the social aspects of fairy tales just like Jack Zipes agrees with. I didn’t realize that culture and social aspects had so much to do with fairy tales. It opened my eyes to see the past and true roots of a fairy tale. Grimm, Jacob, Wilhelm Grimm, and Maria Tatar. The Annotated Brothers Grimm. New York: W.W. Norton, 2004. Print. This book really opened my eyes up about culture. Jacob Grimm and Wilhelm Grimm didn’t set out to entertain children at first. They did not expect any type of entertainment for that matter. The fairy tales in this novel are so much different than the ones that I was told as a kid. These are the true fairy tales. They are not a type of imagination. Culture played such a huge role in fairy tales; especially back when the Grimm brothers actually wrote the fairy tales. This book was interesting to know that the Grimm brothers......

Critical Essay Annotation

...Name Instructor Subject Date Critical Essay Annotation Assignment Halperin, David. “Man’s Fate in the Aeneid.” The Virgin Quarterly Review 53. 1 (1977). Web. March 5, 2015. This article examines the way the Aeneid portrays the powerlessness of human beings in their confrontations with the forces of nature and fate. It suggests that human destiny is preordained, and there is nothing that one can do to change their circumstances or destiny. Thesis The author advances the thesis that the Aeneid captures the condition of human existence, as it portrays human beings to be powerless before higher forces (nature, fate and the gods). It is a moral lesson for individuals to accept their station and obligations in life. The author employs textual evidence to show how the main character (Aeneas) was acting on the orders of a higher power. He tells Dido, his lover, that “it was not my idea” to leave Carthage and set on a mission to found a new city (4.361). This statement emphasizes the idea that human beings are puppets in the hands of the gods/nature, which dictate the circumstances under which they live. This article is useful in understanding the Aeneid as it emphasizes the importance of the make-believe element of literary works. As an epic poem, the Aeneid employs the elements of superstition, which helps to create fantasy in literary works. In this regard, the article helps readers to appreciate literature as a representation of......

...that the misjudgment and failures that contributed to the murder of Carl Williams, which calls into question the liability of the Barwon Prison. In reference to safety to the members in the prison. This is demonstrated by the condemning and informative tone by Ferguson. Ferguson uses attacks by discrediting the opponents as unreliable and dishonest, to gain control over the opposition by using one or more of the means. ‘Monitoring systems were so poor that it took prison guards 27 minutes to find Williams body’. This shows the failures and deficiency of the Barwon prison security.
