Dr. Margaret Neale, Professor of Organizational Behavior, Stanford University Graduate School of Business, the narrator and instructor, describes the objective of the video. She drives us though the process and gives us tips, recommendations, common errors and many explanations about what is happening during the negotiation.” (Video Media Group of the Stanford Alumni Association, 1997)
“The Sluggers Come Home” instructional video provides us with an overview of different visual and realistic scenarios which is narrated with different applications and tactics used during a negotiation at different stages of the process (Video Media Group of the Stanford Alumni Association, 1997) . The video breaks the process down to three primary stages during the negotiation: Preparation, Bargaining, and Settlement. Stage 1 – Preparation The video does a good job in showing us the aspects of what to do prior to the negotiation during the Preparation Stage. It gives tips of errors not do, certain situations to be aware and try and prevent, and correct them if they happen. Negotiations can be broken down into two primary bargaining categories: Distributive and Integrative. “Distributive bargaining is a competitive process for determining how to distribute or allocate scarce resources whereas integrative bargaining is collaborative and allows both parties to create value and satisfy their needs” (Hames, 2012, p. 57,
...Charisse Mae A. Morillo MA SciEd Specialization in Chemistry Environmental Chemistry 08 December 2012 HOME A film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand Short version: 92’ 2009, France, digital Film company: Elzevir Films – EuropaCorp Distributor in France: EuropaCorp Distribution SYNOPSIS The appearance of life on Earth was the result of a balance between elements that took billions of years to stabilize. Humans have profited from the lavish resources of the Earth, but have changed the face of the world by the use they have made of it. The harnessing of petroleum and its subsequent overexploitation are having dramatic consequences for our planet. Human beings must change their behaviour and their way of life before it is too late for them, their descendants and life on Earth. REFLECTION HOME was an “extraordinary” story of Earth and Humanity. It traces back to the Earth’s origins: clouds, volcanoes, smoke, rushing water, etc. and how life appears on Earth: bacteria, carbon, plants, oxygen and water; “everything is linked…sharing is everything”. Life hinges on a delicate balance. Earth counts time in billions of years. Trees appear, then soils, micro-organisms then animals, in a logical sequence in which everything has its place. At the beginning of the film, events unfold slowly. The appearance of life and its development also takes place slowly. Man himself is subject to the pace dictated by the natural elements. The human species is the final link in a long evolutionary chain of...

She undressed slowly, dreamily, and when she was naked, she selected a bright red negligee to wear so that the blood would not show. Doris Whitney looked around the bedroom for the last time to make certain that the pleasant room, grown dear over the past thirty years, was neat and tidy. She opened the drawer of the bedside table and carefully removed the gun. It was shiny black, and terrifyingly cold. She placed it next to the telephone and dialed her daughter's number in Philadelphia. She listened to the echo of the distant ringing. And then there was a soft "Hello?" "Tracy... I just felt like hearing the sound of your voice, darling." "What a nice surprise, Mother." "I hope I didn't wake you up." "No. I was reading. Just getting ready to go to sleep. Charles and I were going out for dinner, but the weather's too nasty. It's snowing hard here. What's it doing there?" Dear God, we're talking about the weather, Doris Whitney thought, when there's so much I want to tell her. And can't. "Mother? Are you there?" Doris Whitney stared out the window. "It's raining." And she thought, How melodramatically appropriate. Like an...

The Come Back
...Brenton Drake College writing Mrs. Payeur 3/5/14 The Gain though Pain It was a normal day in June the summer before my senior year of high school. I had just arrived home from a work out with the football team and my dad was calling my name. I ran up the stairs. He handed me the phone and said it was Brian Sipe, the Hall of Fame quarterback for the Cleveland Browns and my old high school football coach. After Coach Sipe coaching at my high school he became the quarterback coach and recruiting coordinator at San Diego State University. Curiously, I answered the phone and said, “Hello? Coach Sipe”. It was quiet for a second or two before I heard, “Hey, Brenton this is Coach Sipe with San Diego State, I wanted to be he first to let you know that we as a coaching staff have decided to offer you a fifty percent scholarship to play football here and if you perform will raise it to a full scholarship”. I was in shock, stunned that I just got offered. Coach Sipe then said, “I will send you the official letter and you can talk it over with your parents. Have a good day”. “Click” he was gone. I stood there in that spot looking at my dad expecting that he already knew, but my dad kept pushing saying “what did he say, what did Coach Sipe say” I told him that Coach Sipe had just offered me a scholarship and that the official letter is in the mail. At this point I had been the first football player on my team to be offered a scholarship, but it meant so much more than that. When I......

...negative moments about single parenting, there are some positive as well. For example, if a person takes care of a child alone, he has always the freedom to choose and to make all the decisions on his own. On the other hand making decisions can be really hard sometimes and really often people feel the need for somebody’s support and a piece of advice. Usually single parents do not have enough time to do all the house work and thus involve children from the early age in doing chores. Single parents have to discuss most of house matters that should be actually solved with another parent, with their children like with adults. In case the other parent is alive and has the wish to see the kid, they all have to get used to taking the children from one home to another. At any rate single parenting is rather hard for the parent, as a child needs attention and care all the time and parents need breaks for rest. We can not consider single-parent households a disaster as in comparison to the family where there is a constant conflict between parents, it is better for the child to have only one parent, but live in the atmosphere of friendship and care. Single parents are more flexible concerning the time for children, as there are not demands from the side of another parent. Children feel more needed and more valued when they are involved into the process or problems solving and decisions making. Single – parent families could be a great support for each other and the source of new......

...Growing up or living for a long time in a country other than home usually shrinks the feeling of belonging to the home country. It also increases the chances that make a person feel that he or she doesn’t have a specific home. For that Pico Iyer, who was born in England to Indian Parents and grew up away from his home country, said about himself and anyone whose idea about home is not tied to a specific home “We are the Transit Loungers, forever heading to the Departure Gate, forever orbiting the world. […] Nothing is strange to us, and nowhere is foreign. We are visitors even in our own countries.” When it comes to memories, there is no one who doesn’t have memories, regardless of their types. Memories that are stuck in minds often force their owners to remember. In general, everyone has his or her own memories about home, regardless of the home type. Also, these kinds of memories are usually unforgettable. Adaptation is an issue that should be taken into anyone consideration, mainly for a person who is forced to travel to another country, a new home, due to any reason, for example, studying, working, or even living. That person, at the new home, will be exposed to new habits and ways of life that are completely different to his or her ones. Therefore, he or she might need to adapt him or herself to the new life which he or she may don’t like....

...September 7th, 2014 Where My Heart Lies “Home is where the heart is.” This is an influential and famous quote people say to describe there love for home. Whenever I hear the word “home”, I think of my home country, Vietnam. Referring back to the quote, wherever I go, I will always reminisce about Vietnam. It was where I was born, where my family is, where I feel happiness is all around, and where my heart is. Home is when you are at a place that you feel completed. For everyone, they will always have a place in their hearts they called “home”. Vietnam is wonderful with its beauty yet the enthusiastic people. I come from a city in the South of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City. Ho Chi Minh City is always bustling and lively like New York City. Maybe that is one of the reasons why I love New York City. Ho Chi Minh City is called the “Night City” of Vietnam. People stayed up late, wandered around the city, and sleep until 7AM. We are not morning people. On the other hand, in the Capital of Vietnam up in the North, it is opposite. People woke up from 4AM to 5AM to go to the lake for exercising, elderly yet the youth. At night, from 9PM to 10PM, there will not be any motorbikes or cars riding around the hood, which is when they are back in their home. Walking down the streets in the center of the city, just simple walking around the city, puts my mood into a whole new level. Ho Chi Minh City America has been nice, but I rarely feel the world “home” after almost three years staying......

...Courtney Davis October 2, 2014 Bethany Quest III First Essay What is Home? The definition of home is the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household or an institution for people needing professional care or supervision. This definition describes home in the most basic form that truly has no other meaning. The first definition does not take into account the millions of people who possibly do not have a permanent residence or who has no family. It seems to suggest home is a place without personal value; well I think that the term home has a considerably large amount of personal significance that give it a different definition depending on each individual. Home is a place that one would want to go to. “I just want to go home”, clearly indicates a want to go to a certain place. This goes back into the notion that home does not specifically have to be a house. There are plenty of people who feel at home in places that are nowhere close to a permanent residence. There are some people who live in the city, but feel like they are at home when they visit the mountain side. To feel at home, I think, constitutes being at home no matter where it may be. It is a place where people can be content or possibly happy. Home is a place where one could live according to who they feel that they are. Home is a place of expression. It may seem like this is only true for those who own their own house and can decorate...

...Home > College Guide > College Essays > Teen Pregnancy—A Social Issue Teen Pregnancy—A Social Issue Custom User AvatarBy Official_DKW, Ypsilanti, MI More by this author Email me when Official_DKW contributes work After researching various statistics, I found that premarital pregnancy is quite prevalent in teenagers throughout the world. Teen pregnancy is one of the most difficult experiences a young person might ever face when it interrupts school or other plans. It can create an emotional crisis resulting in feelings of shame and fear, and it may appear that you will crumble under pressures in your environment. The stress of how one would break the news to their parents might be even greater, and finding help may seem an impossible task. People might think that they can help others, or one might be too embarrassed to search for help. For the most part, when one sees teenagers raising children, we often think that the teen has been raped or is too mature for their age. For this reason, some totally miss the issues that one must have been exposed to in their society, the society of their home, community, school. There are many viewpoints as to why teenage females are having so many children out of wedlock. However, the facts are obvious—teenaged females are highly influenced by many social issues, but those with the lack of strong parental guidance, sex education, and positive mass media are more likely to have a premarital pregnancy. As one travels the globe, they......

Corruption Comes Home
...Corruption Comes Home: Domestic Violence and Abuse by Law Enforcement Taren A. Lalli IFS2075 Professor Maier-Katkin March 6, 2015 Corruption Comes Home: Domestic Violence and Abuse by Law Enforcement At the beginning of my research and initial framing of this paper, I proposed to write about the drug system within American prisons across the scope of the nation. It wasn’t until a, somewhat recent, article came across my computer screen about a Honolulu officer being investigated after allegedly beating up his girlfriend that changed my mind completely (Blaine, 2014). Many of the qualities valued in on-duty, or even off-duty, police officers can make them dangerous domestic violence offenders. Domestic violence is a multifaceted complex phenomenon. It includes abusive acts towards children, intimate partners regardless of gender, and the elderly. All abusers use similar methods to control and abuse their intimate partners. Officers however, have skills and tactics not generally possessed by civilians. Professional training in combat, intimidation, interrogation, weapons and surveillance become a dangerous and potentially lethal combination in an intimate partner or domestic situation. Victims face the bias of law enforcement agencies and the legal system, psychological fear, and a high lethality risk. This is because victims of domestic violence by police officers are in a very different situation than that of other victims of domestic violence. Domestic violence is...

...films and its impact on audiences. Nollywood movies have held a stigma of obsessive and repetitive thematic themes, yet their popularity is increasing with over a thousand Nollywood films being made each year. With a detailed literature review, content analysis of selected films, a survey on audiences this study focused on the various elements that are significant to the rise of the Nigerian film industry. Although the films have been known to be unrealistic, Nollywood has been a staple in many African homes. It was found that people within the country love Nollywood films and the growing diaspora of Nigerians has led Nollywood to be accessible on multiple platforms. Also, the content and quality of films is noticeably improving. The findings of the study determined the factors that have led to a steady rise of content, production, and accessibility to the films that have kept the Nollywood audience faithful to the industry. For many diasporas Nollywood represents a piece of home, the films serve as education about their culture, and teach valuable life lessons. i DEDICATION This research is dedicated to my parents Wasiu and Ronke Giwa. This is a token of my appreciation for all you’ve done in my life. You have encouraged, motivated, and most importantly prayed for me.

...Reaction Paper of the movie entitled Home The film home by Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a beautifully shot panorama of the Earth and the damage done to it by modern humanity. It includes a moving narration about the evolution of the Earth, nature, agriculture, humans, and the crises of habitat destruction, energy depletion, climate disruption, degradation...of the environment, health, economic disparity, and more. The movie starts by taking the viewer back to the beginning of time, and explains how and when life on Earth came about. We learn, for example, that the world is four billion years old, whereas humans are only 200,000 years old. In the relatively short time we have been around, however, we have had more impact than any other species. In the last 50 years alone, the movie says, the Earth has been more radically changed than by all previous generations of humanity. The movie narrates how our mother earth evolved, how the beautiful trenches were molded, the placid and bluish color of the sea, the formation of rocks, mountains, and other magnificent sceneries were being shown and narrated. The film also shows the ecological cycle of life. The biological evolution of plants where many kinds of plants were growing and cultivating around the world and the evolution of human and animal lives that we never thought would be the one who will destroy the beautiful picturesque of our mother earth. From time to time, in the film, the narrator demonstrates and explains the......

...for high-quality photos, and through this familiarity, they acquire a taste for them. When these professionals need photos to preserve memories, or to display family photos when they entertain at home, they have the budget and the desire for similarly high-quality photos. Just as they appoint their homes with fine furniture and decorations, the photos on their walls need to exhibit their standards of quality. Most people use professional photo studios only on rare occasions, such as weddings, yearbook pictures, or baby portraits. Because the client has to initiate the call, many special moments are lost and the studio loses potential business. Photo studios generally charge a large fee for CDs of their clients' digital images. For these reasons, most photo studios are rarely used by families as a whole. This photography business plan shows how Al Malki’s Photo Studio will meet the needs of professionals and their families to capture the special moments in their lives and present them in the best light. We will establish a relationship in which we initiate the calls to keep their photos up to date. Digital files of their photos will be available for free by e-mail, or with a nominal fee for CD. Because of our relationship with the families, when something big like a wedding comes, there's no place else they would go. The opening of Al Malki's Photo Studio will mark a change in the way professional photography is delivered. Rather than being a rare place to visit,......

Didion’s “on Going Home”: Can We Give Our Children the Same Concept of Home That We’ve Come to Hold so Dear?
...According to the short essay “On Going Home” by Joan Didion, you can never go back home once you’ve acquired another. Didion explains generation gaps during the rocky path towards self-realization and acceptance while attending what we call life. She explains that there is a certain time in which people find themselves in what is described as a mid-life crisis- the realization that what was a familiar and comfortable past is now not the present. As teenagers we wait anxiously for the day we once and for all move out and be free to explore the world from a new mindset. However, in Didion's essay we see that there is a possibility of a new reality of what lies ahead once we step out of the house we grew up in. Her life now consists of dealing with her marriage, raising her daughter, and living in Los Angeles; Didion's persona throughout the essay is that she is often triggered by past experiences that lead her into a lingering sensation of nostalgia and uneasiness but yet hope and acceptance as well. Didion is obviously conflicted with the strong values she holds towards her childhood family life and new family life in LA, wishing to unite them in her marriage. Her husband is troubled to be with her family in this "home" on account of her turning into a different person around her family. It becomes apparent her husband was raised conflictingly and doesn't appreciate it when his wife falls victim to the ways of her family, ". . .which are difficult, oblique, deliberately......
