Foliage - 1,811 words
I place my boot on the neck of this commie bone bag, the toe resting on his chin. I think, I hate this wet heat he breathes. At least there is no rain in it--for now. I hate his elusive sky, too. A sky filled with foliage, unlike the limbs and leaves of the hickory or oak trees back home. "Slats, you and Mad-dog planning to marry that commie beaner," Luke hissed at me. I watch as reality seems to shift; 5' 7", 176 pounds of ground foliage in front of me apparently transforms itself into a Forced Recon Marine, even though my mind knows it is just Luke stepping out of the underbrush.1 Foliage, there is an appropriate sound--and smell. Foliage, aged and weary foulness. I long for a dry breath o ...

... y rather than power (e.g., "Do it because Im the boss and I said to do it!"), that manager has disempowered himself or herself even if he or she attains a short-term objective. Power originates in the individual; authority originates in the charter of the organization. Thus, there is no such thing as "position power." Power can be exerted anywhere, whereas authority is limited by position. (I can tell my team member what to do, but I cannot tell your team member what to do.) Finally, although one's power cannot be affected by anyone else, one's authority can be increased or decreased by someone who holds a position of higher authority. Leadership. Leadership can be defined as the art of ...

The earth's human population and all present-day species of birds and land animals are all descendants of the Noah's ark survivors. There have been numerous aerial sightings and eyewitness accounts of persons who have actually seen the ark close up on the slopes Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey. Constructing a wooden ship the size of the ark in times of antiquity would require an enormous expenditure of labor and materials.

How To Make A Rice Rocket - 764 words
A thunderous roar echoes throughout the once quiet neighborhood. I hear the revving of engines. Suddenly there is a loud screeching of tires pealing out across the pavement. The sound of the engines becomes even louder than before, then quickly decreases as the cars speed away. There is quiet for a few minutes, then the whole thing repeats again. This is a common occurrence in my neighborhood and always means one thing. Its those racers in their rice rockets again! To the layman, a rice rocket is just another Japanese car, but among the young generation, this stands for a certain class of these popular imports. Rice rockets cannot be bought at car dealers. Normal Japanese cars must be made i ...

Diffrences In Athletes - 1,031 words
After my many years of being involved in sports I have discovered that there are many different types of athletes. They can be classified by the different reasons they each have for playing a particular sport. I have come up with three main classifications: The die-hard athlete, the stuck up athlete, and the just for fun and fitness athlete. The die-hard athlete is extremely dedicated and plays simply for the love of the game. They will do anything to improve their skill level, as well as the teams', no matter what it takes. In my case during preseason for soccer, I practice twice a day seven days a week, even if I am sick, tired, or just really sore from working out too much. One of my team ...

Qualities Of A High Performing Team - 398 words
There are three main categories in building an effective, well performing team. The first and most important (in my opinion) is communication. The key to communication is good listening skills, respect for others ideas, sharing your ideas, and constructive criticism. Teams need to listen attentively and respectfully to other team members in order to achieve the highest level of performance. Teams also need to have respect for other team member's ideas, even if they think that the ideas have no meaning. But team members should always use constructive criticism to make the team better as a whole. Constructive criticism will help team members learn from other members of the team better ideas an ...

Whenever we have a group meeting to exchange ideas, one member would always dispute a certain co-worker's suggestions. After digging further into the rift, it is not the ideas that this member is rejecting, it is a personal collision between these two colleagues. Since we are now able to detect where the quandary is from, we can deal with it and move on. There are also contentions that have no redeeming value which a co-worker might not be able to overcome. Divorce, wars and fights can all be considered undesirable conflicts in the world because they never seems to end without people getting hurt. Th ...

(NikeBiz) This way of thinking is how Nike conducts every aspect of their business. Every person is a potential athlete or consumer.
