What is the problem: Wide Partisan Gap over How Best to Reduce Poverty? | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |

Most See Inequality Growing, but Partisans Differ over Solutions
54% Favor Taxing the Wealthy to Expand Aid to Poor http://www.people-press.org/2014/01/23/most-see-inequality-growing-but-partisans-differ-over-solutions/ There is broad public agreement that economic inequality has grown over the past decade. But as President Obama prepares for Tuesday's State of the Union, where he is expected to unveil proposals for dealing with inequality and poverty, there are wide partisan differences over how much the government should - and can - do to address these issues.
The new national survey by the Pew Research Center and USA TODAY, conducted Jan. 15-19 among 1,504 adults, finds that 65% believe the gap between the rich and everyone else has increased in the last 10 years. This view is shared by majorities across nearly all groups in the public, including 68% of Democrats and 61% of Republicans.
Yet there is a sharp disagreement over whether this gap needs government attention. Among Democrats, 90% say the government should do "a lot" or "some" to reduce the gap between the rich and everyone else, including 62% who say it should do a lot. But only half as many Republicans (45%) think the government should do something about this gap, with just 23% saying it should do a lot. Instead, nearly half of Republicans say the government should do "not much" (15%) or "nothing at all" (33%) about the wealth divide.
The differences are somewhat less stark when it comes to views of government action in reducing poverty: Nearly all Democrats (93%) and large majorities of independents (83%) and Republicans (64%) favor at least some government action. However, more than twice as many Democrats as Republicans say the government should do a lot to reduce poverty (67% vs. 27%).
In part, these differences reflect divergent beliefs about the effectiveness of government action on inequality and poverty. Republicans are far less likely than Democrats to say the government can do a lot to reduce poverty and especially inequality.…...

...instruction 5 times a week, with this time limit, it is very impossible for the slow learners to cope with instructions. So to say, we are necessitated to conduct a study in order to increase the performance level of the first year students, particularly the slow learners and non-readers. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM Although English language is taught in the Philippine schools, from the elementary level, the majority of the students are performing poorly in the pretest as they enter secondary school.

...Where Did the Time Go There never seems to be enough hours in the day. Where does all the time go? The alarm goes off at 4:45 a.m., I normally hit the snooze so that I can get fifteen more minutes of sleep. I get up; feed the dogs, than head for the shower. While getting ready for work, I’m keeping an eye on the time, knowing that if I don’t leave by 5:45 a.m. I will be stuck in base traffic and will be late for work. On my ride into work, I’m constantly thinking of all the things I need to juggle hoping to fit everything into my busy schedule. Since starting college this semester, the evenings consist of going to class and homework. My husband will call me and ask what my plans are for after work and it’s always, cook dinner, feed the dogs and homework. If I’m lucky, I’ll finish with my classwork and be able to sit and relax for about thirty minutes. Then it’s time to put the dogs out and off to bed. I feel like I am consistently juggling my time between work, school, dogs and oh yeah, my husband. Then there is always trying to find time to complete household chores. Most of these have to happen over the weekend. Laundry, dusting and cleaning the floors are only a few of the indoor items needing to be done. Then there are dogs that need to be bathed and poop that needs to be scooped. When I was getting ready to go back to college, my husband kept saying, “I can’t wait to see how you plan to keep doing all the things you do and go to school.”...

Big Time Toymaker - Theory to Practice

...  BIG TIME TOYMAKER - CASE SCENARIO 2 Big Time Toymaker - Case Scenario Upon completion of required reading of “Theory to Practice” scenario, I confidently can report that the two parties never prepared a written contract. A written contract was supposed to be created for a deal between Big Time Toymaker (BTT) a company, which develops, manufactures, and distributes board games and other toys in North American and Chou who invented a new strategy game Strat. A contract was in process even the details had been identified, however; it fell through the cracks because of the management change at BTT. Initially, BTT paid Chou $25,000 for exclusive negotiation rights for a 90-day period and held meeting where details were discuss and agreed upon. Chou received an e-mail with the details of the contract, however; nowhere on the e-mail did it note that it was a contract. A month a lapsed without any interaction between BTT and Chou than Chou received a fax from BTT requesting a draft for a distribution agreement contract. Chou took care of that immediately and did not hear back from BTT for several months. New management at BTT took over and made the decision to informed Chou that they are no longer interested. The facts weigh against Chou because there was intent to contract. An official contract was never created between the two parties, which was the requirement in the negotiations. Second, the e-mail that included all the contractual details was never identified as......

...Time. Many people use their time differently, Some use there time inventing, inspiring. There is one thing that everyone can agree on is time is not something to waste. Steve Jobs once said, “Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone ease’s life. Don't be trapped by dogma which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” .this quote explains time well because you don’t want to let other peoples options get in the way of your goal and cause someone to waste their time. One will never know when their time will be up, Good time management for a student requires three points. One step to make time management effective is to develop a time strategy. The time strategy should be based on a short list of time priorities. This short list forms the basis for a student's time planning for every week of the year. The dictionary definition of the word time is “the system of those sequential relations that any event has to any other, as past, present, or future; indefinite and continuous duration regarded as that in which events succeed one another.” My own personal definition of time is the opportunity you are give to succeed of or fail. The first of the three points that a student should keep in his or her mind is not taking on more than he or she can handle. If a student has scheduled to many classes to take in one......

It would like to convert that position to the risk-free asset for a two-month period as it forecasts bad news in the economy. It has decided to do this using a two-month futures contract on the NASDAQ 100, which is priced at $148472, per contract. Each contract consists of 100 times the index. The risk-free rate is 4.65% (no compounding). Describe the strategy to synthetically convert the position to the risk-free asset for 2 months. N = -50MM*(1.0465)^(1/6)/(148472) = -339 contracts 2.

...Observation: Women’s Lacrosse As I observed the women’s lacrosse practice I noticed the qualities of the coaching and tempo of the practice that has lead to their success in the recent years. The practice was very fast pace and only took place on one half of the field. The parts that stood out to me the most was during the second half of the practice. One drill that was performed had the offense and defense split into two teams with the offense starting at midfield. Within the offensive side there were three groups of three players and they were attacking a defense made up of three players as well, not including the goalie in the net. There was a coach at the 50-yard line who was throwing the ball in to the offense. Once one of the offensive players caught the ball they all went into an attack distributing the among each other numerous times before getting close enough to take a shot. This was a great drill to do because it allowed the players to get a maximum amount of reps with decent amount of time in between each group and allowed the coach to see a controlled amount of players in a game like situation. The other drill in the second half of the practice brought the offensive group closer to the goal. The offense was given the ball at about 15-yards from the goal. They were around the parameter of the goal with about four to five players trying to score while the defense was guarding them trying to get a turnover. This drill really stood out to me as well because this......

Best Practices for Managing Your Time and Stress Associated

...Best practices for managing your time and stress associated with balancing graduate school and other life responsibilities. In graduate schools, many students find very difficult to balance their work and time particularly because of the responsibilities that clash with their education. As such, many students become stressed out there is too little time and so much to attend to (Linden, 2007). To avoid such stressful scenarios, it is imperative for the students to get their priorities straight. This implies that the students should be ready and able to know what matters most in their lives. Having a checklist of the things to do, starting with the one on the highest priority should be the starting point. Besides, students ought to learn to be assertive and how to say no. Apparently, students use up so much time attending to activities that are not very important to them and to their studies (Linden, 2007). Despite the influence of peers, the students should be able to cut down the activities that use up to much of their time. It is important for students to ‘be present’. By this I mean that students ought to focus on each thing at a time. For instance, if a student wishes to visit friend or relatives, they should try to forget about school and be with their friends or relatives. The reverse is also true. Besides, (Linden 2007) articulates that students should find time for themselves to recharge. It is clear that majority of students will find graduate school very......

Time

...What is time? In a physical sense? In psychological terms? What does time do? How does it work? Can it be transcended? Time in many ways is like space. In physics, time and space are woven together, like a fabric upon which all matter lies. At the limits, near the speed of light, movement in time is yoked to movement in space. As spatial speed increases, temporal speed slows. Recent quantum physics, in the area of non-local phenomena, suggests that both time and space are not as they appear on our scale of existence. It appears that particles, separated in both space and time, interact, in a simultaneous manner. Indeed, in one of the strangest experimental effects, the future may causally impact the past (the implications of that one will make your head spin). Distant particles are somehow connected, are somehow not distant. It is as if the space and time between did not really exist, nor the proposed distinction. Rather, these physicists (cf. Yakir Aharonov, Jeff Tollakson, and Menas Kafatos) suggest that perhaps there is an underlying singularity or unity to matter, across both time and space. Many spiritual traditions, philosophies, songs, and so on have suggested similar ideas: "We are one, heartache to heartache....love is a battlefield" Pat Benatar. Beyond funny ‘80's rocker references, such notions are at the heart of spiritual practices, across the various world traditions, even mainstream Christianity which proposes that God exists outside the bounds of time.

...Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time by Tony Schwartz and Catherine McCarthy The science of stamina has advanced to the point where individuals, teams, and whole organizations can, with some straightforward interventions, significantly increase their capacity to get things done. Steve Wanner is a highly respected 37-year-old partner at Ernst & Young, married with four young children. When we met him a year ago, he was working 12- to 14-hour days, felt perpetually exhausted, and found it difficult to fully engage with his family in the evenings, which left him feeling guilty and dissatisfied. He slept poorly, made no time to exercise, and seldom ate healthy meals, instead grabbing a bite to eat on the run or while working at his desk. Wanner‟s experience is not uncommon. Most of us respond to rising demands in the workplace by putting in longer hours, which inevitably take a toll on us physically, mentally, and emotionally. That leads to declining levels of engagement, increasing levels of distraction, high turnover rates, and soaring medical costs among employees. We at the Energy Project have worked with thousands of leaders and managers in the course of doing consulting and coaching at large organizations during the past five years. With remarkable consistency, these executives tell us they‟re pushing themselves harder than ever to keep up and increasingly feel they are at a breaking point. The core problem with working longer hours is that time is a finite resource.......
