The results of Leadership Self-Assessment Quiz 4.1, Leadership Skill Building Exercise 4.2, Leadership Self-Assessment Quiz 4.2 and also based on the results of my previous workplace experiences clearly demonstrates that my approach towards leadership is participative which can also be defined as democratic approach towards leadership where a leader involves all of the team to identify goals and objectives and also in the development of strategies in order to achieve those goals and objectives. It became very clear from the exercises, quizzes and also from my previous workplace experiences that every approach towards leadership has advantages as well as disadvantages. Therefore participative leadership comes with some pros as well as cons. Some of the pros of my leadership approach are that it increases group morale, sub-ordinates are asked for their inputs where they feel valued, and if they feel valued this will result in employee retention, asking for thoughts and opinions from sub-ordinates leads to innovative thinking
Hispanic Heritage Essay
America. “The Land of Opportunity – The “Melting Pot” of Cultures.” America’s variety in race has been one of its greatest strengths. Within all the different ethnicities that consist of America, Hispanics have had vital contributions towards the development of our heritage, rich culture, and the building of this great nation. The U.S. Census reports that “the number of Hispanics in the United States of America has exceeded 55 million, making it one of the nation’s largest ethnic minority.” That number has been said to triple by the year 2050! Florida alone is home to 5 million Hispanics. When we get a little closer to home in Hillsborough County, we can account for 1.5 million Hispanics and in Tampa, there are 350,000 Hispanics whose commitments to confidence and family have helped grow the significance of those values in our community. American Community has been influenced by Hispanic culture in several ways such as, military, education, medicine, and food. America along with Florida have become a livelier place to live.
Did you know that without the Hispanics, we wouldn’t be here? Many Hispanics fought valiantly alongside the colonists against the British in the War of 1812, which lead to the establishment of America. Not only that, in World War II over 400,000 Hispanics fought with the US Military. Now let’s get closer to home in Florida, Colonel Manuel Fernandez (born in Key West) was a prestigious military person who was awarded with numerous awards due to his service. Mr. Fernandez isn’t the only person who has contributed as much as he could to the United States. According to the US Census, approximately 160,000 Hispanics are on active-duty protecting you always. The Vietnam War was also a significant war that was fought with Eighty-Thousand Hispanics who fought with commitment and valor. All of these Wars could not have been won without Hispanics, and we should forever be grateful for it.
Hispanics are one of the most capable people in the world. They are multi-tasked and can strive to achieve whatever they put there mind too. For example, many Hispanics take careers as doctors. These amazing doctors have supplied us with numerous discoveries. In 1959, Dr. Severo Ochoa, a doctor from Madrid came to the United States and made ground-breaking discoveries in the field of genetics. He found RNA which is the building blocks of the cell. Without this discovery, we would not be able to advance in genetics, and started the basis of finding cures for illnesses that would never have been found without this discovery. Not all Hispanics had it easy, many Hispanics struggled at first but didn’t let that stop them. They persevered through life and inspired millions around the globe. Dr. Helen Rodriguez Trías was a phenomenal scientist who revolutionized being a doctor. As a child, she experienced bias for simply being Hispanic and was discriminated. Dr. Trías didn’t let that stop her and later went on to graduate from medical school at University of Puerto Rico with flying colors. A few of her achievements include becoming the first Hispanic to be elected president of the American Public Health Association. She also received a medal from the president for her work on behalf of woman and children in the United States. As you can see, Hispanics have contributed to the World with there research along with there inspiration to encourage others to do so as well.
Education was also a huge contribution by the Hispanics. Here in Florida, St. Augustine played a major role in the development in Education. In 1787, when the Constitution was being written, the Spanish open The St. Augustine School. This school laid the basis on what happens all around the United States and that was Public Education. Students of all races were able to attend that school. Once again, the Hispanics have redefined what happens all around the world! Last but certainly not least, would be Food! Hispanics have brought a variety of foods ranging from Enchiladas, Burritos, Tacos and so much more! Many of the restaurants in the US are Mexican based. Here in Florida, Epcot has a season where they bring awareness to the Hispanics and prepare awesome food. Hispanics have influenced what we eat!
Hispanics are overlooked by many, but as you can see, Hispanics have contributed so much to us and they ought to be awarded. My Legacy towards Hispanics would be giving the opportunity of Learning Spanish to adults and even children in which I would create different facilities to help students and even adults learn Spanish and set the precedent for these centers in the many years to come. America would not be the country it is right now, if it weren’t for the millions of amazing Hispanic People.

CL2A1 THE VALUE OF PLAY TO YOUNG CHILDREN
CL2A1-1 Understand the Value of Play to Young Children’s Development
CL2A1-1.2 Explain the value of play for young children in the following development areas:
Value of Play for Young Children:
Children undergo many developmental changes from the moment of their birth until they reach five years of age. These first years are very important in children’s growth especially because they determine the personality of the children. Play supports the cognitive, physical, social, emotional growth and well-being of children and youth.
Children development includes:Physical Development: Physical activity helps children to develop and practice movement’s skills which include: ability to move, balance, coordination and object control. Movement skills help children develop awareness of what their bodies can do; children learn how much space their body needs to take. When developing traveling skills, the child learns how to move the body from one location to another running, hopping, skipping, sliding and walking. Activities involving foot-eye coordination, For Example: kicking a ball; activities involving hand-eye coordination, For Example: throwing or catching a ball. Balance is also a very important skill and children learn to control their balance and to gain posture. Balancing activities involves the body, For Example: walking on a beam will help children learn that putting one foot in front of the other help children maintain their balance; or balancing on one leg will help them to control their posture. Object control involves movements such as catching, throwing, kicking and children learn how to catch, throw and kick objects. Physical activity is linked with every other area of development.
Emotional Development: involves learning what feelings and emotions, understand how and why they happen, recognizing one’s own feelings and those of others, and developing effective ways of managing them. For example: dramatic and imaginative play including dressing up or role play such as being a ‘mummy’ or ‘daddy’ , pretending going for shopping etc.. Show the object at circle time and have the children pass it around the circle say, “William passes the car to Harry.” Play “Stop and Freeze” games with children by having them freeze when you stop the music blow a whistle or ring a bell. It will help to develop positive social and emotional skills and values by providing opportunities for children.
Social Development: children can become more sociable when they interact with their playmates and different toys. Through play games, children can gain significant experiences in their abilities actions and roles. When exposed to play, children can easily learn how to make decisions and master important skills. Play helps children to learn to share their toys with others. Social development is supported by playing team games, copying games, turn taking games and role play games. For Example: Team Play like “Bed sheet Ping Pong game” players stand and hold a bed sheet on opposite ends. A ping pong ball is placed onto the sheet then the sheet is raised or lowered and the object of the game is to get the ping ball game is to fall off the other team’s side of the sheet. Copycat games like, “show your actions to child to copy by putting hat on, wiggling fingers, shaking head and sticking tongue out describe what you are doing. Let him/her mimic sounds too, like a ticking clock or a door bell. These games encourage interaction, sharing and language skills.
Intellectual Development: including the exploration of new objects such as toys, picking up things and disarranging them, making reason inquiries. For Example: “why some things are the way they are.” Children’s intellectual development as it helps then begin to understand important mathematical concepts such as: number, matching, ordering, sorting, making and recognizing pattern, adding, subtracting and measuring. For Example: sorting puzzles and shapes sorter. Role play helps children to explore aspects of their real life. For Example: a visit to the hairdresser, going to the beach to play on sand with funnels, tunnels, tubes and beakers. Constructive allows children to practice and develop reasoning and problem solving skills.
Language Development: we can promote language development by suggesting new vocabulary while children are playing and labeling areas of the play environment as all play involves communication. Language development in children can also be enhanced by playing with blocks. During play children interact with their peers and as such they are forced to concentrate and pay attention in order to hear and understand the conversations they have with one another. Language as benefitted as the children learns and uses new words. Thus, early language development will in turn benefit children as they later learn to read and write.
For Example: they learn how to write by copying letters, and in role play children copy the way they have observed others behave in certain situation, reading stories, singing songs and rhymes, making animal sounds also the example of language development.
Play can also motivate children to broaden the scope of their actions and enhance their confidence as well as linguistic abilities.

A large part of the reason that Google ranks #1 on the top “100 Best Companies to Work for 2017” according to Fortune is due to their competitive compensation strategy. Google is known not only for their innovative technology breakthroughs but also their innovative compensation policies. Google Human Resources performed a survey to determine what type of pay is preferred by their employees such as base pay or bonuses. Managing Human Resources and compensation strategies effectively is vital to organizations within the modern and fast paced business world. Google had created a strategic compensation that gives them a competitive advantage among their competitors by attracting, retaining, and motivating highly talented employees.
The speedy improvement of education, economy and social progress are great significance changes of living standard and life style also. There are huge differences between My Grandparents’ who are over 80 years old childhood Life and now . Life today is consistently changing much more comfortable and easier than it was in my grandparents’ youth for some reasons.
One of the obvious changes of earlier generation is they spend their free time to get involved in social activities, such as parties, travelling, sporting events, talking to friends and going to a park. Nowadays spends a lot of time watching TV, chatting with their friends on their mobile phones , online chatting and in front of using computer which play an important role in the daily life .In college teachers can upload course and assignment then students can download the resources and hand in homework while E-mail. The material life has a noticeable improvement and convenient format is differ from the past.
If I consider my grandparents age at the time of children then I have to go back about 80 to 70 years back. At that time there was no such huge facilities were available by the government. Everybody has to work hardly to make their life comfortable such as they didn’t have washing machines, refrigerators ,microwaves, toaster ovens, blenders, mixers ,vacuum cleaners and so on .So they had to cook ,wash with their hands and clean .At the present time we can easily buy these kitchen tools which to quickly prepare the foods any time .
In today’s life is so easy to do these all work. For example Suppose I have to pay electricity bill, telephone bill , purchase air tick, fund transfer to others, online shopping and so on which possible to pay all these things with in a minute. These all facilities is not possible to get before 80 to 70 years back . They must go respective office to pay bills and buying the things within one day was very difficult because for each bill you had to go different places and online service may them easier for us now.
Lastly, today’s hospital facilities are so modify and improve .There are so many hospital , doctors and health care assistant which can provide in our home service and just need to dial a phone call emergency help .Nowadays transportation facilities are available everywhere in more frequency. You have more chance transportation option like take bus , taxi, car, train, airways etc. All these make our life better and easy to travel and safely If we compare these all facilities with previous 80 years back then now we much better than previous .
In conclusion, I am of the opinion that my grandparents enjoy a much more relaxed , comfortable and easy life than their childhood life before. Hope they get these all facilities to make their life more easy and comfortable which is absolutely different from ever before time .
When people are involved in a disaster of some type, they usually experience an emotional reaction of some kind. Everyone’s experience is peculiar to themselves and everyone’s reaction is unique. The definition of disaster often means one thing to one person and something else to another. A fire, weather disasters such as tornadoes and hurricanes and fatal car crashes are obvious disasters to everyone, but the death of a pet, losing a wedding ring, or losing a job can be just as traumatizing to others. Whatever kind of disaster it is, people have different emotional responses at different times. These emotional responses to these disasters can have a wide range of reactions, including denial, deepening faith, and extreme anger. These emotional responses to tragedy in one’s life have created subject matter for authors for hundreds of years.
Sometimes people who have experienced a disaster may simply deny the event ever happened. The denial can take place in multiple ways, including pretending as if nothing happened and ignoring the consequences of the disaster. Pretending as if nothing happened is simply going about your life without acknowledging the disaster at all. A good literary example of that is the character of Henry in Mark Twain’s “The Californian’s Tale.” Henry’s wife died 19 years ago, yet he lives about 362 days a year of his life as if nothing happened. He functions and goes about his daily activities like nothing is wrong. In “Death of a Salesman,” Willy continues to try to kill himself. Yet his wife acts like nothing is happening, even replacing the water heater hose after she removed it. Denial can be a good survival skill if it is temporary for people for short term, but once the mind and or body have adjusted to the shock or grief that goes with the disaster, it is healthy for them to deal with the situation.
Deepening or changing faith are a very typical reactions to disasters. World-wide, when a natural or man-made disaster strikes a country or community, people all over will hold prayer vigils and put unknown folks on prayer chains. If the disaster has some type of personal meaning to someone, they may participate in the vigils or join a prayer group even if they otherwise aren’t very religious. When a tragedy strikes home, some people may turn against their faith, believing that if there was a God, he would never allow this to happen. Others, increase their prayer time, change their lifestyles to be more “Christian like,” or as in the poem, “Lines Upon the Burning of Our House,” by Anne Bradstreet, they may reexamine what is important in their lives. In Bradstreet’s poem, the narrator determines that all her earthly things are just that, things. But what is important in life is getting to heaven. Others may examine their lives and decide that the time they spend with loved ones is what is important, because time spent and love can be synonymous. Another literary example of deepening faith after tragedy is the character of Mack Phillips in “The Shack,” by William P. Young. After losing his daughter to abduction and murder, he is mysteriously summoned to a shack in the woods where he reexamines his faith. Deepening faith is a very typical response to disasters because people need something to believe in to get them through it.
After a death or some type of tragedy that alters life as it was once known, anger often forms in people’s minds and hearts. They don’t know how to deal with the trauma and shock and it comes out in angry outbursts of irrational behavior. Young children often have temper tantrums when they don’t get what they want and they can’t comprehend why they couldn’t have it, like a candy bar or why they had to leave the park early. When a young child does this, it is called acting out. When teenagers and adults are faced with deep disasters such as losing a loved one, having a house burn, having life altered by a tornado or some other natural disaster they don’t understand, just like a child, they act out. But when an adult or adolescent or teen acts out, it is often socially irrational behavior. Unfortunately, often in times of irrational anger, it leads to yet another tragedy, such as a mass shooting or murder suicide. A good example in literature about phenomenon of irrational behavior is the poem, “After the Disaster” written by Abigail Deutsch authored shortly after the 9-11 attacks. It is a short poem, with only 3 stanzas, describing how someone enters a train car, squeezes the author’s head and runs out. The very last line, after the 3 stanzas is: “Such things were common after the disaster.” Not understanding what caused a tragedy or in some cases, knowing the cause but not understanding why, can cause people to react with extreme anger and do completely irrational things.
In conclusion, everyone reacts quite differently, yet very much the same, when it comes to dealing with a traumatic experience. The reaction is unique to that individual person. Ironically, the uniqueness in so many makes it common in all. For while everyone reacts in his or her own way, denial, questioning one’s faith or belief system, and acting irrationally out of anger at not understanding are common behaviors, and these behaviors have been recognized, analyzed, and written about for hundreds of years by some of the best authors known to man.
We often think of quality improvement as a high-level goal that affect highly visible and easily measurable organizational outputs. Employees should be encouraged to take responsibility for improving the quality of goods and services because I believe encouraging employees to make their own decisions/strategies does assist initiative and responsibility to work independently brings in very positive result. Most people perform best when given work that involves a degree of challenge. We could help the employees by giving them an opportunity to develop the skills that they need to fulfill, satisfied and motivated. Employees who are able to exercise their own initiative will be more aware of quality issues and will make choices that designed to support quality issues.
Causes of disrespectful people to others during online gaming
The new generation nowadays were all of people are now addicted in games and online games especially teenagers were in their ages of having fun and studies with their friends. Furthermore, all these teenagers who like to playing games also knowns as ‘Gamers’. But there are some of gamers are like to condemn, provoke others gamers as some of them playing poorly during gaming sessions as a results of losing the game. There are three causes of disrespectful people to others during online gaming which are lack of attitudes to other gamers, bullying other gamers and disrespect gamer to others in different countries.
Firstly, causes of disrespect to others in gaming sessions is lack of attitudes to other gamers. As in the gaming sessions these gamers are like to focus when playing for winning the game but because of some players who are playing poorly that cause the game losing. These cause the gamers condemn the other gamers which are poorly on playing a games. As they said that these poor gamers are supposed not the play this kind of games because they did not know how to play. As I disagree because not gamers are born to become a professional gamers. As Addiction Blog (2009) Top 10 negative effects of video games on children said “An increase in and behavioral disorder symptoms” where the gamers having poor behavior cause of stressful of playing games. By that the effect can cause fighting with others as some of hey condemn about their life like condemning their family.
Secondly, the cause of bullying other gamers. When the professional gamer likely to bully the poor gamers for fun as examples in shooting online gaming sessions where these professional gamers loves to find poor gamers for killing them and also like to provoking them to fight with them. As effect of leaving the games during gaming session for the poor gamers. As they said that they are just joking to others gamer, I strongly disagree about the statement because not all of them know that it was a joke. And they should have aware of making jokes to others as some of them does not like to be joking at that time. As Marybeth Hicks (2011) HICKS: Video Games and Bully, The Washington Times “At the forum, Mr. Obama revealed that his big ears were, in childhood, a source of teasing and humiliation. He acknowledged the difficulty of being perceived as different from others, especially during the formative middle school years. He called on all adults to consider the role they play in ensuring a safer environment for children.” Where other gamers should have making a good role to the others gamers.
Lastly, cause of disrespectful gamers to others in different countries. When the words are online gaming, this shows that all the players are playing the games which consist from different countries. As they play the games there must have a quarrelling among of them. As that some of them who quarrel using their mother tongue when saying vulgar words. Thus, this make other gamers know where they from and make fun of their country about economy, languages and culture. As an effect that cause condemning other countries
