Source of responsibility Everyone knows that it's all about serving taking care of yourself in a responsible way. We challenge ourselves every day to come up with the right solution. Then we prove it to ourselves before we prove it to others. We know that it must be right. It must be affordable. And it must be there on time, every time. We're proud of the fact that we accomplish what we want and meet our goals in schedules. If there is no responsibility one cannot accomplish and goal that he set for his, his friends and his family so one must have a goal which is supported by a responsibility. The question is where does responsibility come from what is its source?
The word "responsibility seems to have slipped out of usage along with the phrase "taking responsibility."
Here's what the 1828 Webster's Dictionary had to say about the root word:
RESPONS'IBLE, a. [from L. responsus, respondeo.]
1. Liable to account; accountable; answerable; as for a trust reposed, or for a debt. We are all responsible for the talents entrusted to us by our Creator. A guardian is responsible for the faithful discharge of his duty to his ward. The surety is responsible for the debt of his principal.
2. Able to discharge an obligation; or having estate adequate to the payment of a debt. In taking bail, the officer will ascertain whether the proposed surety is a responsible man. Human responsibilities are thmjie universal responsibilities of human beings regardless of jurisdiction or other factors, such as ethnicity, nationality, religion, or sex. The idea of human responsibilities arises as a natural counterbalance to the philosophical idea of human rights.
Meaning of responsibility
Responsibility is taking care of your duties.
Responsibility is answering for your actions.
Responsibility is accountability.
Responsibility is trustworthiness.…...

...PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY Camp Leatherneck the most grueling memory one can experience. The year was 2011; I had a pregnant wife and daughter sitting at home waiting for my safe return. At that moment in time, I knew what was important and with this I had an obligation to my family who needed me. I was not going to take care of my family on this career alone. There is more to life, and if I was going to accomplish this, something else had to be done. Once decided, it was time to invest in an education, which would also take time and dedication. This new path would consist of differentiating what was a must and was a need.

Source Review

...19.09.2014 Source Review In the article ‘Putting ethical practice in corporate responsibility’, Seong (2010) argues that the appreciation(Anerkennung) of business in society puts forward ethical implementation in corporate responsibility as well as the awareness of corporate scandals due to faster distribution via digital channels. The article is relevant to the report question on corporate governance, however, its relevance is limited because the focus is only on one priority of corporate governance. Furthermore, the source is only useful to gain further background information due to a lack of reliable references. The article is relevant to the assessment task, which examines corporate governance and its importance for companies. Seong (2010) points out that companies will attain(erreichen) the gratification(Belohnung) if they recognize(verstehen) the interdependence between corporate responsibility and ethical systems. The more, the correlation between aspects of corporate governance and the worth of corporate responsibility with the result of higher organization’s reward are identified. Moreover, the challenge of connecting the return on investment with the corporate charge into enterprises is presented by the author (2010). The report question’s main focus is on the comprehensive process of corporate governance, hence the source is of limited suitability since it deals only with one principle of the ASX namely ‘Promote ethical and responsible......

...Italy were that the politicians and ministers that lead the country were incapable and inadequate to lead a navy and war. This can be seen in source 7 where Garibaldi describes the politicians as ‘ignorant’ and ‘repugnant’ and the main reason why Italy lost the Battle of Lissa with a fleet superior to Austria’s. He goes on to explain that Garibaldi was given six gunboats ‘of which only one could be put into operation - where as the Austrians had eight gunboats mounting thirty-six cannon. Furthermore, Garibaldi entirely blames the ministers of the navy and the army due to a ‘defect in leadership’. In addition, even after union with Venetia, the Italians felt humiliated as they had suffered devastating and embarrassing defeat at the Battle of Custozza and the Battle of Lisa (July 1866). The Austrians were eventually crushed by the Prussians at Sadowa. They were the forced to cede Venice to France, which promptly handed it over to the Italians. The manner in which the Italians gained control over Venice was seen as a disgrace. As Villari expresses in source 8, ‘yet no one is consent’ and goes on to suggest that the war with Austria destroyed their ‘ultimate self-confidence’. Moreover, the source also suggests that the Italians had underestimated the Germans at the time as ‘the traditionally slow Germans were seen to move like lightning’. This source also suggests that the country is badly lead (‘blame is placed on the political system, on Piedmontism or on the bosses’) and that......

...Personal Responsibility Personal responsibility is being accountable for the decisions made in life. The choices we make affect the outcome, and we are liable for those decisions. Smart and rational life choices will result in success in life. Even if life leads down an unsuccessful path, personal blame is the correct choice and not the blame of others. By understanding that concept, one can turn the unsuccessful path into a successful one. The connection of personal responsibility and success is prevalent in many parts of life, from work to personal life to school. Accepting personal responsibility is a key element for success in school. “Responsibility is ‘response-ability’ – the ability to choose your response to any event, even when the event itself is beyond your control”. (Ellis, 2011, p. 171) Elements exist during school that will be beyond control, such as group work and other team members completing their part of the assignment. By studying hard, participating in group work, collaborating with other students, and doing honest assignments, one can work toward personal success of the highest grade achievable. The work put into assignments will reflect the outcome of success. If there is no effort, the grade will reflect the lack of work. “There is another way, called taking responsibility. You can recognize that you choose your grades by choosing your actions. Then you are the source, rather than the result, of the grades you get”. (Ellis,...

Holding onto these emotional burdens can cause people to act very dramatically and find any sort of way to release these feelings onto the source that his causing them. In order diminish these feelings we take on the responsibility to complete the tasks that are necessary to relieve us of this emotional burden. Responsibility involves completing the tasks that we are given which can result from dramatic obstacles that we face in life. In “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien, Lieutenant Cross feels tremendous guilt when one of his soldiers, Ted Lavender, is shot down. Cross feels that Lavender is killed because he was too busy thinking about Martha, the woman he loves, and wasn’t paying attention. The story states that Cross “pictured Martha’s smooth young face, thinking he loved her more than anything, more than his men, and now Ted Lavender was dead because he loved her so much and could not stop thinking about her” (pg. 542). The position of being a Lieutenant gives Cross the natural feeling of having to guard his soldiers and to try to ensure that as many as them remain alive. Since he has failed, Cross takes on the responsibility of finishing his mission and along with his soldiers, burns down the villages that they come across....

...Understanding the credibility of a source is important for succeeded in writing clear and accurate papers. This assignment showed me that some sources can easily be manipulated to insert one’s own opinion, which can lead to misinterpretations of the facts. Not only did I find sources that where bad, I begun to understand what a good source looks like. The majority of these sources seemed to come from either books or scholarly databases. The first question I answered was “who wrote that the people get the government that they deserve?”. I found this answer on a website called the Big Apple. Alexis de Tocqueville wrote this statement in his book called Democracy in America. The source I found this information from did not seem credible. The website was not from a dot mil or org domain. Also, the website sited the majority of its content from Wikipedia. This leads me to question much of its content. The second question I answered was “How were the colleges Smith, Bryn Mawr, Radcliffe, Vassar, and others collectively known?” I found a book on the subject by using the search engine Google scholar. This Guides to Educational Planning contained information on how to plan for your college experience and succeed. This book had great information on the Seven Sisters, the answer to the question. The third question I answered was “who first invented the modern concept of city police and what were or are they called?”. The answer to this question was the Romans. The information...
