World Changer
In my discussion I will share two important definitions of world changer and include challenges that are related to health and health care needs, with the issues that pertain to nursing. World changer can have different meanings to many different people. The one definition that I related to personally was actually a quote from President Abraham Lincoln “ By serving others and putting others’ needs before oneself, only then can anyone truly impact the world with change.” - Abraham Lincoln (World- Changers for Resources. (2008).. the other important definition of world changer began in 1999 for my school, Indiana Wesleyan College, as a new initiative both to students and faculty and is now included in our mission statement as a commitment to changing the world by developing students in character, scholarship, and leadership. (Indiana Wesleyan University, 1999).
World issues effect the improving of global health with multiple challenges including health problems of…...

...Screen Verdict: DRAW Camera: Overlooking the part where Tim Cook claimed that the iPhone 5 camera would make children look happier, the new camera is more than respectable, and at 8MP is the same as the Samsung Galaxy S3. While tests showed both were capable 8MP shooters, the iPhone 5 performed better in low light conditions. Camera Verdict: iPhone 5 better in low-light conditions Design: The iPhone 5 is the thinnest smartphone in the world, and of course is smaller, thinner and lighter than the Samsung Galaxy S3. There’s still the glass and aluminum pairing for the iPhone 5, and the shiny trim is now tinted. It’s just more quality than the S3 to the eyes. The scion of any tech giant shouldn’t look like it came from a dime store. Design Verdict: iPhone 5 has the look Power: Theoretically the Samsung Galaxy S31.4GHz Exynos chip should trounce the A6 processor in the iPhone 5. It seems after some benchmark tests, though, that the dual-core A6 chip is faster compared to S3 on ICS, and slightly behind against S3 on Jelly Bean. We need a few more results before confirming this, but the pair are the fastest smartphones out there right now. Power Verdict: Draw Connectivity: The new dock on the iPhone 5 means that to keep all your old Apple accessories with you you’ll need to buy that $30 adapter. However, you have a slimmer phone now. There’s still no NFC, removable battery or expandable memory though. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has microSD support and HML......

The World Is Flat

...Thomas L. Friedman, a journalist¸ often travels the globe. On a visit to India he ran across and idea that sparked his want to author The World is Flat. The seemingly simplistic idea is that from information and economic aspects the world is “flat”. In the modern age, individuals and countries have greater access to technological advances, which help level the playing field in terms of communication and gathering information. He presents his ideas through specific stories, interviews, and conversations had with executives in different countries who have similar ideas about globalization. The Next Convergence, written by Michael Spence, expresses the idea that prior to World War II the rich countries were getting richer and the poor were getting poorer. This is the idea of divergence; modern convergence is Spence’s main claim throughout this book. Convergence is the shift in the global economy in which developing countries have experienced rapid growth. He has the idea that fairly soon the developing countries will be on par with the countries with advanced economies. Ultimately, both books have similar messages, but the messages are presented in different ways. A key aspect of Friedman’s book is that globalization occurred rapidly. The Berlin Wall collapse, occurring during the end of 1989, was his first of ten “forces” that flattened the world. Throughout thousands of years of human existence and multiple economies, I do not believe any have experienced a rapid......

Game Changer--Globalization

...Game changer—Globalization The term “globalization” is on everyone’s lips nowadays, which is seen to be a new phenomenon in our modern society. However, when talking about its origin, it is surprisingly enough to know it was first employed in the 1930 and was entered in the dictionary in 1951, proving this idea is not new. Generally, globalization focuses on economic aspect with reference to the integrated financial markets. With the presence of free trade in the era of globalization, tangible substances as well as abstract ideas are widespread and interconnected; which has succeed in marking a change in human history. If asked to list two most predictive attributes of its success, I might suggest the hastening pace of technological change and the existence of free trade. Advancement in Internet and transport technology contributes to the escalation of globalization in the past decade. It expands the availability of telecommunication and information; facilitates remote delivery and provides new access and distribution channels; this helps to increase efficiency and cost-effectiveness in conducting economic activity. For example, the use of Internet—Skype, Facetime, Whatsapp etc. makes the world shrink its size as people can simply reach out to people who are miles away. This facilitates growth of economic activities as interaction and connection between people all over the world becomes a lot easier. What’s more, the market liberalization is indeed an important......

World Changers

...World Changers Charla Fernandez Western Governors University World Changers Martin Luther brought about significant social and political change in the sixteenth century, which sparked the Protestant Reformation. “Any attempt to assess Luther’s impact must begin with his redefining of the individual” (Wilson, 2007, p.34). Luther’s personal convictions led him to attack the idea that individuals must go through a repetitive process or to a religious leader to grant them freedom from the wages of sin. He believed that the Bible was the true Word of God and could be read and understood by all people. He placed the Bible as truth above all societal ideology. Luther liberated people to think on their own, to refuse tradition as absolute truth and to research the Bible to draw their own conclusions. People liked his writings and his theology spread widely. Luther espoused that salvation in Christ Jesus was the cure for a guilty conscious or sin. He taught that a mediator between God and man was unnecessary, for each individual could commune with God directly. According to Wilson (2007), Luther translated the Bible into German. This gave the Germans the ability to read, ponder, and come to their own conclusions about how righteousness is obtained. No longer were the people kept in ignorance. Priest, monks and nuns began to abandon the Roman Catholic Church in order to pursue family life. Luther’s teachings lead to the Protestant Reformation. Luther’s followers took......

Precis - Marketer Acculturation: the Changer and the Changed

...Julius Meyward P. Occeño March 1, 2014 Marketing Management Prof. Dominador Gamboa “Marketer Acculturation: The Changer and the Changed” The global marketplace is consisted of consumers that belong to different cultures and have different behaviors, needs and wants. It is a huge challenge for global companies and marketers to penetrate different types of cultured markets and to the changes that the businesses have to adapt in order to fit in, but it can be an opportunity for them to provide a need that has not yet been realized. Acculturation, as defined in the article, is a general term that encompasses intercultural interaction and adaptation and includes assimilation of a new culture, maintenance of the old culture, and resistance to both new and old cultures. Global companies entering foreign markets either adapt the marketing mix or the separate elements of it to local markets, or they enter local markets with a standardized marketing campaign. The result is both the marketer adapts to local culture and consequently, presumptions can be made that no or little influence is made, and local consumption patterns and consequently, culture to some extent, probably adapt to those imposed by global marketing. In reaction to this, consumers do either integrate, assimilate, reject, or become marginalized depending on how they individually react to the host culture that is being introduced and how much of their home culture they retain. Integration can be seen in the...

...Ghadere Salah PHI-101-013 Rationalism VS Empiricism They say : Hume says knowledge comes from the way one’s mind perceived the physical world. 1.Hume claimed that people perceive the world in two ways – through impressions which are one’s senses and through ideas which are one’s thoughts. 2.Hume claimed that there was no such thing as an innate idea, which is an idea present in the human mind that was not created through some sort of experience. 3.Hume asserted that nothing remains the same, but that one’s mind perceives what is similar as being the same if change occurs gradually rather than abruptly. We say/I say: Descartes says knowledge lies in the mind not the senses. 1.Descartes claims that the way we perceive things comes from thinking. 2.Descartes claimed that we often sense things that don’t physically exist in the external world. 3.Descartes claimed if any component of something was in the very least questionable, then any conclusion drawn from it would be at the most questionable. 4.Descartes reasoned that our senses often misinterpret the physical world. 5.Descartes claimed while it’s possible to not sense things, it’s impossible not to think. Conclusion: Descartes wrote, “I find here that thought is an attribute that belongs to me; it alone cannot be separated from me”. While it’s possible to not sense things, it’s impossible not to think. Descartes claims that he is just “a thing which thinks”. His proof is that he can question his own......

The Game Changer in Medicine and Society

...Morgan Gadley 16 September 2014 English 1102 Zhang Marijuana, The Game Changer In Medicine and Society Is marijuana as corrupt as society makes it out to be? Growing up, everyone is told that, “Drugs are bad for you,” time and time again. Now as a kid you don’t really appreciate the reasoning behind it, but you listen to your authority figure heedlessly. I remember being told this my entire life and even to this very day. But as I got older I realized that people would still use the drugs even though it’s unlawful. I could never comprehend why someone would go against the law and endanger their life just to use drugs? But as I got older I began to realize that these people truly didn’t do any harm to the public or to themselves by smoking marijuana. Many doctors and health specialist are advocates for consumers to smoke marijuana just because of its health benefits. Marijuana is the third most popular recreational drug in America other than alcohol and tobacco, but marijuana is the only one that can benefit you the most out of the three. Alcohol and tobacco are drugs that many people have died from and harms the body as time goes by. Other medication that doctors prescribe to their patients is painkillers, and they can really kill you. According to McKnight et al. (2014), “There were 14,800 deaths from opiate overdose in 2008, according to the Center for Disease Control, and none from marijuana” (p. 4). Pain is the anxiety of disease, the symptom that reveals......

...Worldview Assignment What is a worldview? The term “worldview” can be defined numerous ways all depending upon who is answering this question. After reading this week’s chapters we learn that a world view is made up for 3 components, all of which can define the term. First, a worldview is a person’s philosophy on life. Second, it is a framework that a person brings to decision-making. Third it is the way a person interprets life and the world around them. The question of origin can be answered within the first chapters of the Bible. In Genesis 1:3-19, we read of the creation of the Heavens and Earth. God saw a formless, empty darkness and filled it with His creations. We then read in Genesis 2:7 that God created man from the dust of the Earth to start populating the Earth he had shaped. The second question that of identity, can be explained in Psalm 8:4-8. Mankind was created to rule over the animals, not to be subjugated by them. We are also taught of identity in 1st Timothy chapter 2 (1 Timothy 2:1-15). In this chapter we learn to identify ourselves as individuals and as Christians. Our purpose on Earth is to know God. We are taught this in the book of John (John 17:3). God didn’t create us so we would not look to Him, He created us to follow Him and look to Him for guidance in our everyday lives. Our purpose is also to teach others about Christ and bring non-believers to Him (Matthew 5:14-16). We are to be a light for God and shine our lights for others to see.......

...Charlene Wu Mrs. Zachik World Literature November 8, 2014 A Thousand Splendid Suns By Khaled Hosseini, Riverhead Books, May 22 2007 Laila, from Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns, is a product of her environment. She’s shaped by warfare, by her family and by her education. Laila was born in the city of Kabul, Afghanistan. In the course of time Kabul came under siege and became a war-torn city. “It wasn’t so much the whistling [of the shells] being fired itself, Laila thought later, but the seconds between the start of it and [its] impact, like a defendant about to hear the verdict” (Hosseini. 2.24.1-3). Every day Laila spends in war-torn Kabul she is at risk. The image of herself as a “defendant” symbolizes this. Laila is shaped by fear and by the warfare. Her judge [the shells], in her eyes is a crazy person, handing out punishments indiscriminately and without any regard for human life. Laila also surrounding by her parents.Laila knew that her “Mammy didn’t understand. She [Mammy] didn’t understand that if she looked into a mirror, she would find the one unfailing conviction of Babi’s [her husband] life --looking right back at her” [Hosseini. 2.21.59]. Mammy and [her husband] Babi had a difficult relationship. Mammy blamed him for the death of Ahmad and Noor. But it’s Babi’s unflinching devotion to Mammy that ultimately shown through, as Mammy eventually fell back in love with Babi. This love had an impact on Laila and how she viewed her......

...My aunt to me the greatest person in this world, one of a kind and one in a million Sometimes I know the words to say, Give thanks for all you've done, But then they fly up and away, As quickly as they come, She has the biggest heart with the most caring touch, which she shares with so many of us. How could I possibly thank you enough, The one who makes me whole, The one to whom I owe my life, The forming of my soul, Her soul is made of pure love, yet she's worth way more than gold, The one who tucked me in at night, The one who stopped my crying, The one who is an expert At knowing when I am lying, In my eyes, she will always be, the most beautiful person to walk the earth. The one who makes such sacrifices, To always put me first, Who lets me test my broken wings No matter how much it hurts, To me she's the smartest woman I know, and it truly does show. For accepting me as I changed Accepting all my flaws, Not loving ‘cause you had to, But loving just because, There is no one that compares to her, no one that even comes close, For never giving up on me, Even when your nerves had reached the end, For always being proud of me, For being my best friend, On a high pedestal is where I hold her, for I admire her so much more than she knows. Having her apart of my life is the greatest gift of all, being in her presence is god's blessing to me. Looking deep inside of her, I see that strong, wise woman I hope to become, So thank you Auntie for everything, And most of all thank......

...Meghan Marshall 3rd hour It was always so difficult to wake up in the morning for school, but never hard to wake up early on the weekends to step into the brisk air in preparation to show her horse, Cowboy. Amy was an equestrian, and that meant early mornings and late nights were the inevitable. Today was the first morning of the APHA World show in Fort-worth, Texas. Amy Smith never thought that she would compete on the American Paint Horse Circuit due to the level of difficulty but she also knew these were the steps she had to take to be a World Champion. This year was different for Amy and Cowboy, It was their last year of Youth 14-18 before she went on to be a Amateur. Amy knew that after this she could no longer compete with cowboy because Amateur level was too competitive. All the handwork was paying off as her and Cowboy moved to the top of the list in points on the circuit. This morning she knew she had to do good to keep up the points and qualify for the High Point. Amy walked towards the barn and thought about how hard her and Cowboy worked everyday to get where they were. "Amy! Good Morning! Are you ready for today?" Amy's trainer Heather hollered across the isle way of the barn. "I'm very ready, its just a matter of getting Cowboy ready. He seems pretty into his morning hay" Amy smiled while she spoke about cowboy Cowboy was in his blanket munching on his hay. Amy loved him, he was her boy and the best horse she had ever owned.
