“STUCO Is My Life” My sophomore year of high school was coming to an end. I kept thinking, I had to do something exciting my junior year, or at least get involved. I started hearing about this leadership club, Student Council. Instead of just joining the club, I wanted to be a part of the inside activities and the class. I went in for my interview, and was accepted for a spot in the class the next year. I had come to realize that Student Council was a student-lead organization in which we strived for excellence in not only academics, but creating relationships, showing pride in the school we attend, and learning leadership skills, while also seeking little guidance from our advisors. We learned valuable lessons, while participating in a variety of committees such as Community Service, Environment & Energy, and many others. This organization is one of the communities that I’ve been a consistent member of at James Bowie High School. We value leadership, teamwork, and academics which can be used in real life situations. Student Council is significant to me because it helped me become optimistic and challenged me to do better in life. I am an accepted member of Student Council. When joining STUCO, which is short terminology for Student Council, I had to learn all types of communication, such as mastering what we like to call “The STUCO Clap”. The STUCO Clap was a chant or more so a beat, that everybody in the class had to participate in. Starting off as a newbie, I had no idea what I was doing. I was always off beat, missing a step, or even saying the wrong words. I wanted to be able to master this skill and be good at it, so I could show and help those who would be joining the class next year. I would always practice whenever I got home. After about three to four weeks, I finally was able to do the clap without stumbling…...

City Council

...appointed students to city councils? What qualifications should a student have in order to be appointed to a city council? If a city has a youth commission, should the city council select only from a list of candidates approved by the commission when appointing a student to the council? If the youth commission and the student appointed to serve of the city council disagree on a proposed ordinance, which perspective should the city council weigh more heavily? If Texas appointed students to city council, there should be things taken into consideration, the biggest concern would be that this recommended choice may simply be the student who was able to win the popularity contest. The city council should consider the recommended candidate but should also ensure that the new appointee has the appropriate oral and written communication skills, as well as the minimum necessary education that would provide a fundamental understanding of city government and how a city operates. A student would need to be responsible, intelligent, logical, willing to make decisions that are good for the entire city's residents, and he/she must be able to withstand long meetings. The Youth Commission should have some effect on who is appointed to the Council to represent the youth, it would also make sense to limit the student to a term of office, after which the youth commission could select another one or renew their term. It might also be wise to allow the Youth Commission to recall a student......

Student Council Planning of Children in Need Activities Day

...Need The Student Council and its cover supervisor Mrs. Hunt have all agreed and concluded that an activities day should be created based on the theme “Children In Need”. Despite the fact that the actual day of the Children in Need has already passed, we decided to go ahead with the plan since it would have been impossible to create the activities day in such short notice. Here is a list of ideas proposed by the members of the student council regarding the event. * Non Uniform Day * Charge £1 which will then be sent off to the charity. * Food Stalls * Some of the food will be provided by the students * Parents will be notified to avoid using ingredients that may cause allergic reactions or exclude other people from eating the food because it contains a certain ingredient (e.g. Gelatine – non-Halal/Kosher) * Raffle * Students purchase a raffle ticket for 50p * A prize to be handed out to the winner and two runner ups (Prize to be determined) * Students to be able to purchase a maximum of 5 ticket * Winner and runner ups to be announced in an all year (or KS3) assembly * Activities * Football tournaments (or other sports) * Cricket Challenges * Running Competitions * Full day focusing on a particular subject * Drama Performance * Staff from the drama studio willing to create a play for students during activities day. Problems with the proposed plan: I have been informed that students from Year......

The European Council

...The European Council Introduction The European Council being a body of the European Union. Their duty is developing and implementing the general political guidelines of the European Union and can be considered as the primary political authority when it comes to and international affairs and leading us as a wider community. Like the common phrase “Rome wasn’t built in a day” neither was the council, it was brought about through several meetings dating back as far as 1961. The main reason for the formation of the European Council was to focus on significant challenges which the European Commission or the Council of Ministers had neither the power nor capacity to attend to. The European Council is one of the seven institutes of the European Union (EU) these are: * The European Parliament, * The European Council, * The Council of the European Union(the Council of Ministers), * The European Commission, * The Court of Justice of the European Union, * The European Central Bank, * The Court of Auditors. Not to be confused with the Council of Europe, the European Council works alongside the Council of the European Union. It consists of the heads of state or government and has twenty-seven EU Member states, the Prime Minister, Usually the president is head of both state and government but in some cases head of state doesn’t play a big role in politics and there would be a Prime Minister present, the president of the commission currently Jose Manuel......

Right to Council

...Right to Council Valerie Perez CJA/364 5/13/2013 Daniel Hanke Right to Council Right to council is a right that is stated in the Constitution of the United States. The 6th Amendment clearly states that the defendant has the right to council. According to Cornell University Law School (1992-2013), the 6th Amendment states: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.” (para. 1). In other words, defendants obtain the constitutional right to be represented by an attorney during a trial even if the defendant cannot afford one. When one cannot afford an attorney the government appoints one to handle one’s case, at no cost. At almost every important phase of the criminal process, the suspect has the right to a lawyer. The right to council is important to defendants because they are the ones who will be most likely facing charges and without the right to counsel defendants run the risk of serving a long term jail time and/or death. * This paper will analyze two cases and discuss how the historical development of right to counsel relates to......

Privy Council

...The Husband’s Wife’s Professor[1] Your administrative assistant puts through a phone call. A lawyer greets you with, “I’m Ms. Carol Paz, attorney for Mr. Jerome Johnson. Mr. Johnson wants to meet with you to express his concern that one of your professors was having an affair with his wife, Jane, while Jane was a student there. You see, when Jane was a student she was diagnosed with cancer. The professor befriended her during that difficult time. At some point the friendship did not remain Platonic. Jane, now having graduated, and Jerome are seeking counseling to mend their marriage. Jerome wants your professor not to phone Jane and not to send her any more e-mail.” Attorney Paz says, “I understand that your university does not have an official university policy prohibiting consenting adults from having these sorts of relationships. And so there is nothing that you can do officially about this. Yet I think it would be in everyone’s interest that you agree to meet and listen to his concerns, given Mr. Johnson’s anger about all of this. Naturally I’ll be present as well. I think if Mr. Johnson has the opportunity to speak to a person in authority at the university he will not feel the need to take any other action to protect his marriage.” The meeting is scheduled. You and the campus Equal Opportunity Compliance Officer (EOCO), an attorney, meet with Mr. Johnson and his attorney. Your EOCO confirms that your university has no policy against......

Role of Council

...The role of Council is to provide good governance as they elected to represent and respond to local view and concerns, under take long range planning and priority setting, enact policies that determine what services are to be provided, establish rules and regulations that enhance the quality of life in the local community, adopt budgets, provide leadership and executive direction to ensure municipal decisions are implemented. Staff in conjunction with the CAO works to ensure that Council is well informed with sufficient information to assist in their decision making process; implement and administer the policies and programs as set out by Council, and provide appropriate follow up to Council inquiries and citizen inquiries and concerns. The roles are similar as council and staff are responding to the concerns of the citizens and working towards implementing programs and policies to meet the needs of the citizens in a fiscally responsible manner. They differ as staff look toward long term planning and sustainability, where Council looks at the short term matters and concerns. Increased interaction between staff and the community is a good support role of the elected officials by knowing the situations and concerns of the ratepayers of the community with the creation of a cooperative and supportive relationship of the operation of local government. This can also be a threat to elected officials who act as activists with an agenda of their own, which then they are not looking at...

Student Council Speech

...Good Morning (afternoon) teachers and fellow students. My name is ________ and I am in grade 8. I have been a student at St. Luke’s for 10 years. St. Luke’s is a great school. The teachers are always there for us and the students are the best. When I started at this school, I was four and I couldn’t read or write and didn’t know what to expect. Now I want to give something back to our school.  We are lucky to be students at St.Luke’s. While at St. Luke’s, I have participated in many school activities. These include sport teams such as volleyball, basketball and intramural soccer. I have also been a member of the Green team for _____years, and I attend church regularly at St. Luke’s Parish.

So, why do I want to be a part of Student Council? First of all, I want to make a difference. I want to help make kids look forward to coming to school by planning some fun events for all of us so that our memories at St. Luke’s will be great. I would also like to make St. Luke’s more environmentally friendly. Some ideas would be to have more litter-less lunch days and also to plant more trees or even a garden at our school. We could even make announcements to remind the students of how to save the environment even at home. I also think it would be a great idea to have more......

British Council

... staff members at the British Council, Colombo who supported me to gather data on this particular area and for the valuable information provided by them in their respective fields. I am grateful for their cooperation during the period of my assignment. of Human Resource Management. I take this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to my lecturers at IPM who freely imparted knowledge on Human Resources management and shared their expertise and experiences and encouraged in further pursuing this subject. Last but never the least I thank my family and friends who helped me tremendously by extending rock-like support in preparing this project from its inception to the very end. 1. Background of the Organization History of the organization In the 1920s and early 1930s, the Foreign Office realized the need for an organization responsible for the promotion of British culture, education, science and technology in other countries, along the lines of existing French, German and Italian cultural organizations. The British Council has expanded to run over 200 offices in more than 100 countries around the world. This led to the setting up of the 'British Committee for Relations with Other Countries' in 1934.  The name was later changed to the 'British Council for Relations with Other Countries, and then shortened to the 'British Council'. Sir Reginald ('Rex') Leaper is recognized as the founder of the British Council. Persuaded of the importance......

Student Council

...Speech I believe the role of head girl is more than just a badge and a title. It means being a good leader and representative of the school, respecting your friends and peers, being trustworthy, and having pride in our school community. I’d meet the challenge of being head girl but I would approach it with enthusiasm and determination, an open mind and everyone’s best interest at heart. If I am elected as head girl I will make sure everyone feels comfortable and included and is doing the right thing, that preps and new students always feel welcome, I am willing to be open to listen to people's ideas and opinions, and that the school grounds are always clean and tidy. Even if all these things mean giving up my lunch times and recesses, I am willing to dedicate my extra time that I have into being school captain and to the responsibilities that come with this honourable title. Now, I have to admit that I don’t know everything, and I also know I’m not the smartest, sportiest or the tallest candidate for the job but I will promise you this, if you vote for me elected, I will put everything I can in to the role of school captain, because being a leader would not only be a huge honour but it would be my biggest pleasure. I will do whatever is needed to help our school and the people inside it, I am overflowing with ideas and ways to make our school a better place. This role demands time, effort, organisation and confidence as well as dedication. I cannot think of......

INTRODUCTION This paper presents an inspiring story that focuses on the Christian enthusiasm concerning the faithful during the period of the fifth century. The faithful Christians staged war where they opposed the heresy that could have been the cause of degrading the faith through the incarnation and finally leading to the derogation of the Mother of God's dignity. Following this instance, it is very much possible to imagine that the good reaction or even its absence in the present times ecumenical Liberals leads to the emergence of Nestorius during our time1. However, the Catholics who lived in the fifth century, glory to God, had a close relationship with Martyrs Age. In this regard, it then becomes necessary to find out how these Catholics defended their faith, taking into consideration that for each and every moment that a Catholic follower prays these days, conducts such prayers through the enthusiasm of Ephesus in 431. Indeed, an Ecumenical or the General Council of the Church refers to the......

Council of Nicaea

...Critically evaluate the claim that the Council of Nicaea was successful in it’s defeat of Arianism. (20) The Arian Controversy should have ended at the Council of Nicaea as it had for the moment had driven underground. However the controversy had only served to reveal the deep seated theological division within the church. The new situation in the church’s relationship to the state meant that the success or failure of a doctrine may depend on the support of the reigning emperor, Constantine. The six decades between the Council of Nicaea and the Council of Constantinople in 381, Arianism experienced many victories. There were periods where Arian bishops constituted the majority of the visible ecclesiastical hierarchy. Primarily through the force of political power, Arian sympathisers soon took to undoing the condemnation of Arius and his theology. Eusebius of Nicomedia and others attempted to overturn Nicaea, and for a number of decades it looked as if they might succeed. Constantine adopted a compromising position under the influence of various sources, including Eusebius of Caesarea and a politically worded “confession” from Arius. Constantine put little stock in the definition of Nicaea itself. During the reign of Constantine the creed of Nicaea was sacrosanct, although the Arian leaders who had been exiled returned and Eusebius of Nicomedia became the leader of the anti-Nicene coalition. Due to Constantine’s view of the creed Eusebuis of Nicomedia policy was to not......

The Council of Europe

...organization: The Council of Europe Year founded:5 May 1949 by the Treaty of London. Original Members: Belgium, Denmark, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Original objectives: In 1945, at the end of the second World War, Europe was marked by unprecedented devastation and human suffering. It faced new political challenges, in particular reconciliation among the peoples of Europe. This situation favored the long held idea of European integration through the creation of common institutions. In his famous speech at the University of Zurich on 19 September 1946, Sir Winston Churchill called for a United States of Europe and the creation of a Council of Europe. He had spoken of a Council of Europe as early as 1943 in a broadcast to the nation. The future structure of the Council of Europe was discussed at a specific congress of several hundred leading politicians, government representatives and civil society in The Hague, Netherlands in 1948. There were two schools of thought competing: some favored a classical international organization with representatives of governments, while others preferred a political forum with parliamentarians. Both approaches were finally combined through the creation of the Committee of Ministers and the Parliamentary Assembly under the Statute of the Council of Europe..This vision also led to the creation of the motto and the underlying objective of the Council of ......
