Dead Man Walking - 1,411 words

Dancing With Wolves - 590 words
Lt. John Dunbar was lying on a hospital bed, leg totally mutilated. Barely conscious, the man over heard the surgeon say he could not amputate this mans leg as tired as he was. Dunbar didnt like what he heard, so when the surgeons left, he grabbed his boat, and he slowly slid the boat up his mutilated foot biting on a stick to relive the massive pain. He returned to the battlefield, with only one thing on his mind, suicide. So, he took a horse, and rode it directly in front of the Confederate army.

Diversity In The Workplace - 1,141 words
Workplace Diversity: Fact or Fiction? Are todays corporate diversity programs truly effective? That question, posed by Robert J Grossman in an article carried by the Wall Street Journal Online on June 28, 2000, will be explored as part of the review of Mr. Grossmans article. The concept of diversity goes well beyond the historical employment equity legislation enacted in both federal and local jurisdictions. It calls for the recognition of the contributions that individuals can make as individuals, not just as members of legislatively designated groups. It calls for management of organizations to be totally inclusive, not just tolerating those who are different but celebrating those differen ...

Do Your Employees Trust You - 610 words
This article suggests they probably do not. They trust their co-workers and they even like their job for the most part, but not the managers. They dont believe that managers make the best decisions, especially when it comes to decisions made about them. The author poses two questions for you, as a manager to consider: Does it matter that your employees dont trust you? And how do you find out? The first is the easiest to answer with a resounding - YES, it matters very much. The two biggest reasons why it matters are related Performance (theirs and yours) and Profits. In regards to their performance, top performance will not be obtained, from any employee who does not trust you. If they dont ...

Dvorak Keyboard - 317 words
The Dvorak keyboard layout has been slow to catch on due to lack of scientifically conclusive evidence that it is superior to the QWERTY sequence. The majority of positive test results seem to come from Dvorak himself, who had a financial and intellectual investment in his patent. Ergonomic studies did not support his superior claim for the layout. Tests done by the Department of the Navy were positive, but considering that Dvorak was also a Naval Officer, it is no wonder that endorsement was provided by the U.S. Navy. Businesses are slow to accept a change in an accepted standard due to the risks of rejection by competitors. The comparison of the two is very similar to the videotape format ...

Dos - 445 words
DOS (Disk Operating System) was developed by the Microsoft Corporation, as the standard operating system for use with IBM personal computers.

Domino Effect - 572 words
A bad day is like a domino effect. One block falls and each one will follow. It is ten o'clock on Tuesday morning and normally I would hit the "snooze" button about five times, and roll out of bed, but today feeling extrememly energetic. I hop out of bed and decide to shower early in hopes of actually presenting myself in a better manner than my usual t-shirt and running pants. Tuesday was also the first day I began to feel better. I have been battling strep throat for up to a week and a half now. My chest also was congested and I sound as if I have my two fingers shoved up my nostrils when trying to talk. I turned on the shower and enjoyed to sweet scent of my finesse shampoo and conditione ...

Daffodils - 308 words
Outside of my grandmothers house, there are these daffodils, fluttering and dancing with the breeze. Every spring break morning, sparkling waves of daffodils accompanies me with bliss and admiration. The milky way of daffodils changes throughout the year; however, it always blossoms at this time of the year. They portrayed to me as grown teens ready to enter reality with control of fear. They are no longer sprouts guided by hosts and forgiveness; they now confidently toss their heads in sprightly dances. Their pistols are making efforts to present warmth and wealth into the world with apt powers of their potential. I, like the daffodils is now at spring during my lifetime. I am ready to blos ...

Dochyels Grand Adventure - 716 words
Dochyel stood very stiffly at the bottom of the old stairs that lead up to the attic. He held a large serving spoon that was stained with spaghetti in his right hand. In his left hand he firmly held one of his mothers cast iron lids to her frying pan. On his head he sported a metal spaghetti strainer. He was prepared to face anything that was up there. He looked up the chipped stairs, but just by the look of them he didn't want to go up because they were old and cracked and he was afraid the stairs would eat him before he reached the top. He stepped on the first step, it squeaked under his pressure, as did all the other steps. His foot made a small thud as he continued up the stairs. He grip ...

Drinking Reality - 713 words
There is nothing in the world I love more than coffee, I thought. The aroma that calls you from a million miles away. The bitterness it sends through your soul, filling you up; giving you the warmth that you so desperately crave. And the darkness the blackness that reminds me all too much of my life. I didnt know what I was doing there, but somehow it made sense. I skipped my first class that day. My first class ever. I didnt know why. If I had to think about it, I never knew why I did anything. All my life, I was guided and told what to do by others. I never realized where I was going; I walked a tight rope of others expectations thinking that if I ever took my eyes off what was ahead, I wo ...

Drink Industry - 1,949 words
When there is industry there is competition. The bigger the player, the harder they can play. The big players always try to consume many of the small competitors. When they do this they can expand their market share. A perfect example of this is the soft drink industry; Pepsi and Coke have always been archrivals. They are always trying to gain market share, by absorbing many smaller beverage companies to appeal to the public. This paper will discuss the history between these two industry giants and how they financially stand at this point, plus how supply and demand effects this industry. Coca Cola was invented by an Atlanta pharmacist John Pemberton in 1886. His bookkeeper, Frank Robinson, ...

Die Theory - 802 words
The industrial art of manufacturing consist of many catergories like stamping dies, plastics molds, and jigs and fixtures to be used in the mass production of solid objects. I have experienced working on a press with sheet metal. My job was to slide the sheet metal onto a pressworking die and place the palms of my hands on a sensor so that the press would then stamp the sheet metal into a predetermined shape. Next, I had to slide it onto the next die for the next shape to be made. The pressworking dies in the factory would range from extremely small to gigantic;but the press that stamps out the roof of a car is about three stories highand capable of exerting tons of force. The manufacturing ...

... tors and banks are meant to help out these ailing firms by lowering the interest rates on their loans or rolling them over completely. In return, the companies are supposed to reform themselves; although many have simply cooked the books in order to make their balance sheets look better. When the company failed to win agreement from its labor unions for a cost-cutting program, it found no fresh money was available. The firm then defaulted on loan repayments to its major creditor, the Korea Development Bank. The pressure to keep propping up busted firms is partly political: the South Korean government deeply fears an increase in unemployment. The banks are also concerned about having to m ...

A movement for Philippine independence, involving diverse groups, continued throughout the occupation. A Commonwealth government was established in 1935 to allow limited self-rule but this was interrupted by the Second World War and the Japanese occupation. The guerilla movement against Japanese fascism was led mainly by Socialists and communists, known by their acronym, HUKS. Shortly after the end of the Second World War, flag independence was regained although the U.S. imposed certain conditions, inclu ...

Differences In Tradition And Culture - 493 words
Differences in Tradition and Culture The word Tradition is a very vast one. Every country, city, and land has its own tradition and culture that is entirely different from each other. People, generally after they have picked up a certain tradition, find it very difficult to adapt to another tradition or culture. This reluctance to easily adapt a new tradition is the main reason as to why there are many differences among people, due to their tradition. Some people, refuse to accept another tradition because their views are different and they treat all basic activities differently, "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer." (Robert Le ...

Drug Abuse With Athletes - 1,302 words
Drugs have been a problem in our society for many years. They have been used and abused by many groups, including professional athletes. It is certainly quite common to hear about or read about athletes and drug use. Although drugs have a lengthy history of use by athletes, they have varied effects on the body and different preventions. Much of the world's supply of cocaine is produced in South America. Thousands of years ago, the ancient Incas of Peru chewed coca leaves because they made it possible for them to work in the high mountains of the land for longer periods of time. In the 1880's Bolivian soldiers were given the drug to help them gain endurance and overcome fatigue. It wasn't unt ...
