The Smallest Things Can Make A Difference I have chosen to study “Post-Its (Notes on Marriage)” by Winnie Holzman and Paul Dooley. This is a short drama in which a man and a woman go through some ups and downs in their relationship and it is being told by the post-it notes they left for each other. I believe this piece of literature is important because it shows the little details in a person’s life and how they add up together. It is a great example in how such few little details can add up to how much you love someone. I have chosen this because I enjoy drama, character development, and it’s ending. This is a drama that may seem “basic” but it holds so much depth in it when it is given complete attention. This text is also extremely relatable because the characters are referred to as “man” and “woman”. Therefore, it can be anyone, which allows the text to become more personal to the audience. This drama starts off with a cute and comedic banter between a man and a woman. As they both enter the room and approach the table, the man notices that the woman does not sit down because she is waiting for him to pull out her chair, so he does. After she is seated, the man stands and waits by his chair. The woman realizes what he wants and after a while goes to seats him as he did her. After this, the man reads the first post-it., “Had an early meeting, couldn’t bear to wake you. Close front door hard or it won’t lock. P.S: Last night was incredible” (Dooley and Holzman 1). The fact that it starts this way lets the audience know that these two individuals have a personal connection. They understand what each other wants when all they are doing is standing by a chair. It can also be inferred that they have been sexually intimate due to the last sentence on the first sticky note. The post-its are little…...

Post Modernism

...International Journal of Arts and Sciences 3(15): 238-254 (2010) CD-ROM. ISSN: 1944-6934 © InternationalJournal.org Filipino Philosophy and Post-Modernity Raymundo R. Pavo, University of the Philippines Mindanao, Philippines Abstract: Post-Modernity, with its stress on freedom and creativity, is a vantage point that can dispose Filipino thinkers to philosophically formulate, construct and develop thought systems. This liberating milieu can be reckoned as a fertile occasion where Filipinos can explore the conditions of possibilities that grant a philosophical status to thoughts, statements or constructions that either come from or pertain to the Filipino mind. Such that when we use the concept Filipino Philosophy, we are well-conscious of these two interrelated points – The Identity and Referential Nature of the concept Filipino, and the connotation/intension of the term Philosophy. Is it Filipino? Is it philosophical? These are the questions that have guided the ruminations in this philosophical treatise. And as an initial insight to such questions, we propose a kind of vantage point that can address the identity and referential nature of the term Filipino in a Filipino Philosophy and the philosophical substance of its claim. This perspective, we shall argue, may be construed by a social-scientist-philosopher. As a social scientist, this thinker is mindful of the descriptions or characteristics that may be regarded as telling of the Filipino milieu. As a philosopher,......

Pigeon Post

...Pigeon Post The pigeon post was one of the oldest means of communication. It was first used even before 2000 BC by the Persians, the Egyptians, the Chinese, the Indians, the Greek, and the Romans. People have noticed that pigeons are able to fly to a far distance and come back to its nest, a pigeon’s ability that scientists now call homing, and then started to breed them. In fact, some people breed pigeons to be able to find its way home from extremely long distances, and we call them homing pigeons. In the Ancient times, pigeons are used for delivering and announcing events, like to announce people that an important person is arriving by releasing pigeons from said person’s ship in Ancient Egypt or announcing the winners of the Olympics in ancient Greece. In the Middle Ages, pigeon post has grown rapidly as it became a favorable form of communication. However, pigeons are later used for military purposes, especially in the Franco-Prussian War which brewed from 1870-1871 and the World Wars. Pigeons can fly for a thousand miles, while humans and horses cannot fly at all. Flying gives them an upper hand because they can see things from an elevated field of view. Also, pigeons are usually faster than horses so they can be an ancient equivalent to E-mail. Since pigeons can be ordered to fly to one place and another, they are able to cross the borders and send mail and parcels to other people living in other parts of the world, therefore spreading out. Also, if a country had......

On Post Housing vs. Off Post Housing

...Jenei Lewis English 0310 10/21/11 On Post Housing vs. Off post Housing Being a part of the military comes with a lot of amenities and benefits. One of the most popular amenities offered to soldiers and their family members is housing. As a soldier, the army pays for your living arrangements. Soldiers are given a basic housing allowance; with that allowance, soldiers can either choose to live on post or off post. There are pros and cons to both ways of living. A few things to consider are bills, maintenance and your basic housing allowance and security. Many soldiers have their own preference to why it’s better to live on post or off post. Speaking as a member of a military family, I believe it’s better to live on post and be secure financially, but some people beg to differ. Living on post can be good for most soldiers and their families. The army gives soldiers a basic housing allowance. The normal rate for the basic housing allowance is $1000.00. If the decision is made to live on post, the army keeps that allowance and provides a nice home. One of the pros of moving on post is there are no utility bills. Some soldiers are not used to paying bills, and often pay bills late. So living on post is a great idea for soldiers and their families that are just starting out. Another amenity offered on post is the maintenance. If there is any maintenance issues or problems with the home you’re living in, the army will send someone to your home to fix it for free. ......

Market Analysis The repositionable notes market is made up of paper or tabs with adhesive, which allows the product to be stuck on surfaces and moved, without leaving residue. They are also known as ‘sticky notes’ and the idea was first conceived by 3M innovators. Post-it, the original inventor of ‘sticky notes’ have seen other competitors entering the market, yet having little success in toppling Post-it as the market leader. This is especially so in Singapore, where most of the brands shy away from competing head-on with Post-it, by differentiating their products. 1.1 Market Environment 1.1.1 Technology The ease of accessing wireless networks via Wireless@SG, since its introduction in 2006, has led to a surge in consumers switching to 3G phones. The implications of this on the repositionable notes market is that gadgets like phones are increasingly being used as a substitute in place of sticky notes, in reminding people of certain events or things. Instead of physically placing a post-it on the desk, people choose to set reminders on their phones, with alarms. People also choose to send short......

Post-Racism

...Layer 1 Layer 1 Julianne Layer English 122 February 16th, 2014 Professor Rogers Rough Draft 1 Do we live in a Post-Racial America? If you take a look at the way society has formed itself today compared to hundreds of years ago, you would say we do live in a post-racial society. The 15th Amendment was passed after the Civil War and it guaranteed blacks the right to vote. If this Amendment was not passed the way we live today wouldn’t be the way it is right now. We wouldn’t have a black President; black and whites would have to used separate bathrooms, water fountains, and be separated on the bus. More importantly, you walk down the street today and see white girls with black, Chinese, or Latino boyfriends. Post-racial America has fallen upon our generation and sooner or later, color won’t even be a thought to judge someone by. We live in a post-racial America because people who are racist are looked down upon in the world we live in today. The research provided will explain why we do live in a post-Racial America. America today has stereotypes for all different races. White people have money, black people are involved in crime, Asian people get straight A’s, and Latinos live off the system. Racism isn’t as harsh today as it was in the past. There are still racist people in the world and that will never change, but it has declined since 1865. During the Civil War, the North wanted to prevent the expansion of slavery into territories in the West that had not yet......

Posts and Beats

...(1) Difference between Posts and Beats Criminal Justice/210 (2) Today’s law enforcement still incorporates some of the old traditional methods used in the late 19th century. Two examples of these methods include beats, where a police officer is assigned a certain area to patrol. Patrolling may occur on foot, bicycle, or vehicle. Patrolling beats gives officers the opportunity to interact with members of the community to strengthen the effectiveness of communication and encouraging combining efforts in keeping the community safe. If necessary, beat officers will perform traffic duties as well. The next example, posts, are designated locations where a police officer stands guard and secures. Although posts do not require the officer to patrol a beat, it may still involve a small level of patrolling within their posted area. For example, an officer may be posted at a hospital, bank, or grocery store where the locations’ size is such that patrolling the immediate premises is necessary to......

Notes on Post-Fordism and Post-Modernism

...Notes on post-Fordism and postmodernism Post-Fordism and Postmoderism: * Capitalism requires a large number of low-skilled workers willing to put up with alienating, repetitive work on mass production assembly lines. This system is often called Fordism because the Ford motor company was the first to introduce this. * Bowles and Gintis’ correspondence principle states that school mirrors the work place, and see the mass education system as preparing pupils to accept this kind of work. * Postmodernists argue that this view is out-dated and that society has entered a new postmodern phase and are now fundamentally different from the modern society that both Marxists and Functionalists have written about. * Postmodernists reject the Marxist idea that we still live in a two class society, and the claim that education reproduces class inequality. * They argue that class divisions are no longer important and that society is now much more diverse an fragment. * Postmodernists also argue that the economy has shifted away from assembly-line mass production and is now based on ‘flexible specialisation’ where production is customised for small specialist markets. * The Post-Fordism system requires a skilled, adaptable workforce able to use advanced technology and transfer their skills rapidly from one specialised task to another. * Post-Fordism calls for a different kind of education system where instead of preparing pupils to be low-skilled, low-paid...

The nurse also had the responsibility of ensuring that the patient feels as though they have all the information that they have rights to and that they have been well educated on the surgery.

The nurse administers patient teaching in regards to many things, patients usually have fears when it comes to the effects of surgery and anesthesia they may at times have questions about how the surgery will affect their home lives negatively. The nurse can teach the patient about the surgery to diminish some worry about the after effects. The nurse can explain what anesthesia does to provide some knowledge for the patient. Some post op teaching like deep breathing and coughing exercises are done pre op to ensure the patient understands and can start them as soon as he or she is able.

Bios and Post

...Computer Structure and Logic Understanding The BIOS and POST Student Name Introduction Inside every PC is a BIOS, which stands for Basic Input Output System.  In a nutshell, BIOS is software that interacts between a computer’s hardware and the operating system and software applications.  There are several types of BIOS', ranging from the motherboard ROM BIOS to adapter BIOS' such as video BIOS, drive controller BIOS, network adapter BIOS, SCSI adapter BIOS, etc... These BIOS' are the lowest level of software in a computer providing a set of small programs or software routines that allow the hardware of a computer to interact with the operating system by a set standard. The Boot Process To get to the operating system, a computer must first boot from the BIOS.  The BIOS performs a number of tasks when a computer is started.  From initializing the microprocessor to initializing and testing hardware to starting the operating system.  Starting a computer is not a simple task.  It's a methodical process that is performed every time power is applied to a computer. This process will vary with different computers and different BIOS', but the overall goal is the same. When you first turn on a computer the very first operation performed by the CPU is to read the address space at FFFF:0000h. This address space is only 16 bytes, which is not nearly enough space to house the BIOS found on a motherboard.  Instead, this location......

Post Colonialism

...IRWLE VOL. 7 No. 2 July 2011 1 Arundati Rai’s The God of Small Things – A Post- Colonial Reading Rajeev. G The adjective “post colonial” signifies the notion that the novel or be it any piece of writing for that matter, goes beyond every possible parameters of the locality, region and nation to participate in the global scenario today which is an aftermath of European colonization. The God of Small Things written in the post colonial Anglophone by Arundhati Roy does reveal a decisive post colonial condition; through its dialogues, characters and various events and instances it encompass. Ms Roy refers to the metaphor “the heart of darkness” in the novel which is a sort of ridiculous reference to Conrad’s novel the heart of darkness. She says that, “in Ayemenem, in the heart of darkness, I talk not about the White man, but about the Darkness, about what the Darkness is about.” (Frontline, August 8, 1997). The God of Small Things tells the story of one family in the town of Ayemenem in Kerala, India. The temporal setting shifts back and forth from 1969, when Rahel and Estha, a set of fraternal twins are 7 years old, to 1993, when the twins are reunited at age 31. The novel begins with Rahel returning to her childhood home in Ayemenem, India, to see her twin brother Estha, who has been sent to Ayemenem by their father. Events flash back to Rahel and Estha’s birth and the period before their mother Ammu divorced their father. Then the narrator describes......

Having high blood pressure and high cholesterol increases the chances of having a stroke so steps should be taken to take them down (Kernan et al., 2014). Reasons such as unhealthy diet, smoking, being overweight also becomes the reason of having a high blood pressure and subsequently a stroke. This study is going to target stroke patients of over 60 years of age. Having a high blood pressure is the very common reason of why strokes occur in patients. It is very necessary to let the patients know how they can overcome and get past the disease that they are facing. This is the reason that this issue has been undertaken in this study because it is being faced by many people around the world. Hypertension Management Post Stroke There are three key questions that need to be answered in the diagnosis of hypertension. These questions are asked in order to find out whether there does a secondary from of hypertension exist? Are there risks that are linked with the cardiovascular and does any organ damage exist? When it is recognized that there exists hypertension it directs curative therapy and gives insights as to how therapy can be guided which includes renal artery stenosis and the use of medications (WHITE, 2011).

...TITLE: Turn That Frown Upside Down or (Good ole Lemons)--- which do you like better? DATE OF POST:: TIME OF POST: (either 8 AM or 12 PM- please reference your editorial calendar from training) AUTHOR: Liana E’Akels IMAGE or CONTENT: “When life hands you lemons make lemonade” is a common saying heard by many. Growing up I experienced many “lemons”, but I also learned many valuable lessons. The lemonade was always the fact that I was able to take away something positive from every experience and grow from it. Seeking the good in a bad situation has always been something I’ve used to pull through many struggles. Whenever things didn’t go as planned or the unexpected occurred I tried to turn it into a learning experience. Being negative never solves a problem but only makes it more difficult to endure. Surrounding oneself with positive energy and supporters also makes the lemonade even sweeter. When you dwell on a situation and make it an excuse for why you can’t do something you’re the only one holding yourself back. You don’t need sympathy to make it through hard times but empathy. These two words may seem similar but have very key differences. It is much like the saying “misery loves company”. Those that are sympathetic are essentially helping you dwell in misery, while those empathetic try to understand your situation, but also help you realize you have to push through it and move on. Instead of feeling sorry for myself when things took a wrong turn I......

Post Negotiation

...Post-Negotiation Report on Overtime rate, hours of work & Shift Premiums (Union-The United Metalworkers of Canada) Post-negotiation (Overtime rate, hours of work & Shift premium) During negotiation, we came across few issues that we did not include in our original planning book. The clause of overtime took a major part of our discussion time. Wages, overtime and benefits were the only clauses where we had to make calculations and required the company’s financial standing. Some of the errors that we made in the overtime clause were: * As compared to the company’s financial standing, our opening position was quite smaller in values. We were unsure, that if it would be possible to inflate the values while negotiating. We increased the values of our overtime and shift premium rates while bargaining. Our new rates fell in place in terms of the budget was not going higher than the financial standing of the management. Our target position was similar to the management’s fallback. * In our original planning book, we did not consider the issue of how the overtime employees will be assigned. Management wanted to be deciding on who will be assigned for overtime hours, however, we wanted it to be entirely voluntary. As our opening position, we would keep overtime as being voluntary based and management cannot force or assign any worker without asking. * We also included switching shifts option in our new planning book. We think it is necessary as it can......
