Personal Growth Plan

Planning your personal growth goals, not a new concept but an important one to map out. Personal growth enables us to develop, to reach our full potential. Growing as a person is never easy, because it requires change. We as humans naturally get into a comfort zone and the only way to grow is to leave that comfort zone. The six growth goals of mines in no particular order would be: 1. Better public speaker, 2. getting healthier, 3. more outgoing, 4. better body language, and 5. accept changes, and 6. ignore negative situations. These six growth goals would help me become a better person, and complete me as a well rounded individual. Graduating in May, with an interest in the business world I know I have to become a better public speaker. Public speaking doesn't come naturally for me, but I must improve. First, goal of action is to volunteer now with events that would force me to speak. Then I could speak on topics that I am interested in. I feel as if I'm passionate about the topic, speaking about will be easier. I'll practice and prepare before every speech, to make sure I get the kinks out the way. I don't have a full list of classes left to take, so I can a public speaking course. Lastly, join a group such as toastmasters or something similar. My attended timeline for these actions would be a year from now. If I put effort into these plans on becoming a better public speaker, I will become one in due time. My personal and mental health is very important to me. I want to lose more weight, and be in a better mental state at all times. I've started working out more and more lately. Another action is to eat healthier, I can cut out snacking, and bread as a start. Drinking more water would help tremendously. If I can get to the point where I only drink sodas and teas occasionally is the ultimate goal. As pertaining to my mental health,…...

Human Growth

...1 Population Growth William DiCarlo SCI/230 November 12, 2012 Casey Bulaclac 2 Population growth has increased rapidly due to the vast advancements in food production, medical technology, and sanitation infrastructure. Human births have drastically outpaced human deaths to a level which is unprecedented in human history(Petryni, 2012). It has become very important for individuals to understand this phenomenon of human growth by understanding the two main growth curves that are practiced by scientists. The first human growth is the exponential growth curve. With this curve, scientists believe that the population growth will remain fairly constant and the population will increase by double in a short period of time(Petryni, 2012). The reasoning behind this curve is that it plots an output of an exponential equation, hence the name exponential growth(Petryni, 2012). The second human growth curve is the logistic growth curve. Scientists that study this curve predict that the population will eventually level off as the growth rate approaches zero(Petryni, 2012). Scientists call this human growth curve the S- curve because of its strong resemblance to a large capital S when plotted correctly. The population growth rate does have a significant effect on our population. The more people brought into this world creates a strong demand for other resources. The demand for food, water, and shelter...

Growth of Mississippi

...in August 2005, the Mississippi casinos were forced to shut their doors. Instead of abandoning Mississippi, everyone worked excitedly to restore properties, place employees back to work and bring tourists back to Mississippi’s area. In the eyes of many, the financial impact is obvious by the capital investments and the thousands of jobs created, the quality of life has been improved by the growth and additions of other tourism-related businesses such as restaurants, outdoor recreation, small hotels, museums and festivals. Casino executives have made Mississippi their home and provided extensive community leadership, and millions of dollars have been donated by the industry to local social, educational, cultural, community and economic development organizations. Positive impacts and progress that did not exist for this region just two decades ago, now exists today. (Challenges to Mississippi Gaming Development since Katrina, 2010). Main point 1:   I.

Culture and Growth

...1111/j.1467-8586.2010.00364.x CULTURE AND GROWTH: SOME EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE Dustin Chambers and Susan Hamer Department of Economics and Finance, Salisbury University, Salisbury, USA ABSTRACT Using Hofstede’s cultural data set, this paper examines the impact of cultural characteristics on a nation’s economic performance. Using a two-step estimation procedure, we first estimate a panel growth regression and obtain estimates of each nation’s fixed effects, which reflect idiosyncratic differences in growth performance. In the second step, we regress the fixed effects on invariant cultural and institutional variables. Our estimation results suggest that individuality and tolerance for uncertainty are the most important cultural factors in explaining nation-specific growth performance. Furthermore, our findings suggest that political and property rights play a major role in determining idiosyncratic growth. Keywords: culture, economic growth, freedom, property rights JEL classification numbers: C23, O1 I. INTRODUCTION Using several measures of culture, we seek to determine the effect of culture on a nation’s economic performance. Among the cultural characteristics that we examine, individuality and uncertainty avoidance are found to be the most important in predicting economic growth that is not otherwise explained by economic fundamentals. Moreover, we discover that these cultural characteristics indirectly influence growth by shaping the legal framework of the nations...

Inflation and Growth

...inflation and growth has remained a controversial one in both theory and empirical findings. Over the past couple of years, a lot of economists have claimed that an increase in economic growth leads to an increase in inflation and that decreased growth reduces inflation. There are several theories to explain the nature and existence of the inflation-economic growth with the theories suggesting that variety of possible conclusions. These include: Classical, Keynesian, Neo-Keynesian, Monetarist, Neo-classical and Endogenous growth theories. Studies have shown that inflation and its variability have significant real costs to the economy with several of the studies indicating that a 10% inflation rate can cause up to 3% loss in the GNP thus many governments have adopted inflation targeting as a dominant economic policy framework. While all the studies agree with Bruno and Easterly conclusion that inflation threshold will occur somewhere below 20% they differ significantly on the specific threshold rates. Most of the studies reviewed conclude that there is indeed a significant negative relationship between inflation and economic growth at high inflation rates in the long run. However, while many sophisticated techniques have been applied in an attempt to explain the relationship between inflation and economic growth; many key questions still remain unresolved. Introduction: The objective of this paper is to study the relationship between inflation and economic......

Economic Growth

...I. MACROECONOMICS Issue or Problem: Economic growth II. SUMMARY/Synopsis OF ARTICLE: Economic growth has dropped to .1% in the Eurozone. After an 18 month recession, the countries began to show economic growth. However, while in the last period growth was at .3%, this period it has dropped. In order to increase grown, Europe’s central bank cut interest rates to just .25%. This drop in economic growth is different in the Eurozone countries. Weaker countries had to even taken bailout money. Some of the affects it had on citizens were large-scale job cuts, reduced wages and pensions, higher taxes and widespread changes to public services. Even more prominent countries, such as France and Germany, showed decreases in growth. One of the reasons a decrease in growth is happening in the Eurozone is because of a decrease in exports. Exports dropped to 1.5% in the third quarter. While there was a decrease in exports, some are saying that production is picking up and that there should be a gain soon. III. MACROECONOMICS CONCEPTS: A.) 1) Recession-a period of temporary economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced, generally identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters. 2) Contraction- the process of becoming smaller. 3) Interest Rates- the annual rate at which interest is paid: a percentage of the borrowed amount. 4) Debt- something, typically money, that is owed or due. 5) Unemployment- the failure to use all available economic......

Economic Growth

...Economic growth Economic growth is the increase in the amount of the goods and services produced by an economy over time. It is conventionally measured as the percent rate of increase in real gross domestic product, or real GDP. Growth is usually calculated in real terms, i.e. Inflation-adjusted terms, in order to obviate the distorting effect of inflation on the price of the goods produced. ( Wikipedia, 10th december 2012) Executive summary- Economic growth is the growth what every economy and country are desperate to achieve for the sake of the country’s population. The aim is produce more and goods in order to increase the standard of living simply by increasing the wages of mass population. Increasing standard of living is to provide quality food, better and better service and education, latest technology in order to ease everyday’s life. The expectation in order to achieve faster growth are usually are on the rise in the hope of building better and prosperous country. Economic growth is considered to be a positive to be a positive side of an economy but at what extent? A countries economic growth is visible by its infrastructure, urban development, globalization, higher education rate; create employment and higher wages for poor worker and many other positive changes. When the demand of economic growth there are a few who thinks of the negative effect it might have. There are many negative concerns about faster economic growth and this is environmental issues,......

Auxin Growth

...Auxin on Plant Growth Sahil Modi TA: Eric Robert Schuppe 3/12/14 Biology Lab Report 2108K Abstract: There are several ways to help plant growth through artificial hormone insertion. This experiment mainly was set up to see if the hormone Auxin would promote growth to these plants in different soil types like sandy, acidic, and regular with the uses of the radish seeds put in each one. . The plant with the insertion of auxins created a decent amount of growth in the sandy and regular soil, while the plant in the acidic soil had no growth whatsoever. Sandy soil prospered the most with growth. So by doing this experiment it shows Auxin is good with plant development and does change plant structure. Introduction: Plants all over the world grow at a slow and steady pace but the population of the world is growing at an exponential rate. To maximize plant growth, farmers and agriculturist are using chemicals called hormones to help stimulate rapid plant growth and development. Without plant hormones the plants would not grow properly. There are several different hormones that affect plant growth; the hormones used in this experiment are called Auxin. The other hormones that can be used for growth are Gibberellins, Cytokinins, Ethylene and Abscisic acid. In this experiment Auxin was used. What is auxin? Auxin is a hormone, which regulates plant growth. "Auxin helps to stimulate the cell elongation which made the......

Growth Hormones

...Topic Growth Hormones. Endocrine system is a very important part of the human body, The endocrine system helps regulate and maintain various body functions by synthesizing and releasing hormones, chemical messengers. (Adam, 2001) The major areas of control and integration include responses to stress and injury, growth and development, absorption of nutrients, energy metabolism, water and electrolyte balance, reproduction, birth, and lactation. (http://www.pennmedicine.org/, 2001) The endocrine glands include the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and pineal glands. (Tortora 348) There are organs that are not classified as endocrine glands but have cells that secrete hormones ie. hypothalamus, thymus, pancreas, ovaries, testes, kidneys, stomach, liver, small intestine, skin, heart, adipose tissue, and placenta. (Tortora 348) Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is a hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary that stimulates growth of body tissues, especially skeletal and muscular tissues. (Tortora G-14) The normal functions of HGH stimulates the growth of essentially all tissues of the body, including bone, GH is vital for normal physical growth in children; its levels rise progressively during childhood and peak during the growth spurt that occurs in puberty. (Growth Hormone 2014) This hormone is really important because of its characteristics, without this hormone working properly there would be adverse affects to a persons physical appearance and structure.

Population Growth

...and New York” (Campbell 1). Population growth is the increase of individuals, which has increased tremendously in the DFW area. As a metroplex we should care about the population increasing because we are running out of resources, we are overcrowding and expansion of diseases. Even though it boosts the income of the economy, the alarming rate of population growth in the DFW area threatens the community. In order to improve the rate of population growth in DFW, the city needs to better Education, women empowerment, and Family planning. DFW has been the most growing metroplex in the country besides New York and Houston. The DFW area is full of attractions and businesses, this area is great for doing businesses. Therefore, people of cities are moving to DFW for their business or the attractions DFW has. “Texas added more than 387,000 residents between July 1, 2012, and July 1, 2013, and more than 1.3 million since April 1, 2010, significantly more than any other state” (Young 1). DFW’s population keeps increasing, therefore, its getting worse and worse for our community. The population is increasing because a lot of immigrants from Mexico are coming our way and increasing our population. The Hispanic population is is getting closer and closer to the non-Hispanic population. “Hispanics made up 38.3 percent of the Texas population compared with 16.9 percent for the U.S.” (Martinez 1). Everybody should care about population growth because we as people need the......

Economic Growth

...Economic growth is increases in output. It can occur if previously unemployed resources are employed, there are more resources or existing resources improve in quality (Grant and Stanlake, 2000:285). According to the report, the economic gap between the north and the south of the United Kingdom was significantly enlarged in 10 years (White, 2015). Regional outcomes in Britain have exhibited strong signs of divergence and asymmetries on the basis of a North-South divide for over twenty years (lse.ac.uk, 2006). The purpose of this essay is to examine the regional imbalance in the United Kingdom. After first explaining measurable growth by some economic theories, it will analyse actual and potential growth by drawing business cycle and LRAS diagrams. Next, it will analyse the reasons for regional imbalance. Finally, it will evaluate actual supply side policies. Real GDP measures the value of goods and services produced at constant prices, the change of the real GDP only reflects the change of the quantity of production. In addition, people prefer to use real GDP than nominal GDP because real GDP reflects the economy’s ability to satisfy people’s needs and desires (Mankiw and Taylor, 2011:496-497). According to below graph, it shows that UK economy has experienced up-and-down swings in the years since 2003. Before 2008, growth more stable between 0.2 and 1.8 per quarter. However, GDP is more unpredictable after 2009. (Source: BBC news, 2015) The first type is actual growth......

Growth

...Macro Assignment Tahirah Smith- 409002047 Question 1 Consider the following between the real money supply and the growth rate of money: Δ(M/P) /M/P=-γu where M is the money supply, P is the price level, γ is a constant of proportionality and u is the constant growth rate of money. a) The relationship measures the sensitivity of real money balances to the growth rate of money. The equation shows that the growth rate of money is inversely related to the real money supply, i.e. if the growth rate of money increases, the level of real money supply will fall. b) The price level is proportional to the money supply and to hold the growth rate of money constant the price level will have to increase in proportion to an increase money supply or fall in proportion to a fall in money supply. c) If the growth rate of money increases while holding the money supply constant, the price level will have to rise since overall real money balances need to fall. d) If the growth rate of money is reduced, the central bank would have to increase the money supply if they also wish to hold the price level constant. Question2 a) Nominal value of government interest payments = nominal interest rate × initial debt Country A: Country B: 0.07 × $2,000 0.02 × $2,000 = $140 = $40 b) Official government deficits = Revenue – Government spending – Nominal interest payments Country A: Country B: $340 - $200 - $140 $340 - $200 - $40 ...

Child Growth

...Development and Child Growth ECE 205 Introduction to Child Development April 9, 2012 We talk about the descriptions of child development and growth stages and what they mean and how we look at those stages and how a child will develop and growth through these changes as well. When we talk about growth we are talking about the actual size and the physical changes that a child makes over time, We talk about how the cells in the body change and with time change and expand or enlarge which is what increases the growth and the height of a child, also their weight, the circumference of their head, hands, shoe size, arm growth, and last but not least there body shape as well. Allen, K & Martoz, L (2010) When we look at children they all develop differently some will growth mentally at a faster pace than others, and others will grow physically faster than others. Infants will become more of their surroundings and with those stages of infant growths and starting out would be the rooting and sucking reflex which is a very big part of growth because that is a part of survival and that also starts to create them to be able to turn their heads. Some of the other major growths that happen with infants when they are starting to grow would be the Moro reflex, Palamar grasp reflex, babinski reflex, and last but not least the stepping and walking reflex. As those stages start to happen then you have the cognitive development and those stages would start out by the senorimotor......
