PA School Prerequisites: Admissions Directors Answer Your Burning Questions

BY 4 Comments







Admissions Directors Tell All - PA School Prerequisites As you probably know by now, if you want to get into PA school you must complete the necessary prerequisite coursework.

I have discussed this in detail in a previous post  Prerequisite Coursework: How to Design the Perfect Pre-PA School Curriculum .

Today, we are going a step further by giving you answers to some of the most common PA school prerequisite questions.

And the best part is:

These answers are directly from the PA school admissions committee themselves.

PA School Prerequisite Q&A

  1. Do You Look Down On Community College Prerequisite Coursework?
  2. Do PA School Prerequisite Classes Expire?
  3. Can I Apply With Coursework in Progress?
  4. Do My Prerequisite Courses Fulfill The Requirements?
  5. Do You Accept Online Prerequisite Coursework?
  6. Is There a Minimum GPA for Prerequisite Coursework?
  7. Do You Accept Prerequisite Courses Completed at Different Colleges?
  8. Is Lab Required?
  9. How About Repeat Courses?
  10. Graduate Or Undergraduate Courses?
  11. Dropped Courses?

The following are questions asked by pre-PAs as part of the annual Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA) forum where ADCOMs from 30 top PA schools come together for a weekend and answer your questions. Schools such as Duke, Butler, Penn State College of Medicine, Yale, and Case Western Reserve (to name just a few).

Below you will find the question in bold with the answer given by the ADCOM (admissions committee) in blockquote. I have provided a summary of recommendations in yellow at the end of each section as well as an overall summary at the end of this post.

Got more questions or some helpful advice? Please let us know in the comments section.

1. Do You Look Down On Community College Prerequisite Coursework?

What is your take on applicants that take only one required course at a county college?

One or two community college courses is fine. The only time it becomes a concern is if ALL of your science or prereqs come from a community college, or there are multiple community colleges you have attended. – A.T. Still University

How do you view community college classes? Say if I take a prerequisite course at a community college, but it was a simple general education class such as sociology?

Community college classes are fine. We know many people do not have the resources to go back and take pre-reqs at four-year schools – Duke University

I took all my science classes at community college. Will that be a problem?

Having all of your science from a community college will be a weakness on your application. If you have some science courses at a 4-year university that will help, but having completed all your science classes at CC will be a negative factor. – A.T. Still University

If I do plan to retake some courses, does it matter if it’s at a local college or university? I can take some at the university level but others I can only retake at the college level because of financial hardship

You can complete coursework at any regionally accredited institution. This can include a community college or online as well. – Butler University

So long as the courses are completed at a regionally accredited institution, they will satisfy. It does not matter to us if they are from community college or a four year institution. We are aware of the significant costs for applicants and students alike and we encourage you to complete them in a way that is cost-effective and works for you. – Penn State College of Medicine

I took all of my prerequisites at the community college level. Would you suggest re-taking any at a University or would it be better to put my focus into improving other areas of my application such as patient care? How much of a negative impact does this hold? My GPA is strong, and I have significant volunteer hours.

In your case, I would not suggest retaking the courses. Yes, focus on your strengths so that you can offset the community college science courses. If you have an opportunity to take an upper-level science course at a 4-year university, you might consider that, but focus on the strong aspects of your application. It’s not a one-strike and you are done – the whole process is flexible and holistic. – A.T. Still University

I had a school tell me that because I took my last few courses at a community college that was held against me and that I was 3 of their scoring points away from an interview. How do you guys feel about that?

Upper division prerequisite requirements can be completed at a four-year institution, community college, or online courses from regionally accredited institutions. We do not look down on community college coursework. It will be factored in the same way – Penn State College of Medicine

Does your PA program accept prerequisites from Tri counties community college?

Yes, we will accept prerequisites from Tri C or other community colleges. – Case Western Reserve

Summary: Some schools do care if all of your prerequisites courses are taken at a community college, but the vast majority don’t. If you can, it is best to research your preferred PA school’s website and contact the program admission team.

2. Do PA School Prerequisite Classes Expire?

I would like to know if the prereq classes taken in undergrad in 2003 would be considered in factoring GPA or should I retake them. I can try to retake some at a university, but because of my financial situation, I can only afford community college courses. Will this be ok? Thanks

Courses you have taken do not expire for us. We will use your coursework from 2003 in our transcript review to determine which prerequisites are fulfilled. – Yale University

I completed my science classes in 2008, should I retake them?

If you’ve been working in healthcare full-time since graduating we would waive that requirement – Penn State College of Medicine

Do you accept a three-credit Humanities course if it was taken six years ago in 2011?

Yes, we will accept humanities credits that are older than 5 years. Only science credits must be taken within 5 years. – Touro University

My question is whether or not classes taken during undergrad “expire?” I graduated with a B.S in Biology in 2013 but started college in 2006. I was in the Air Force, so my undergrad took a long time to complete. As it stands, I am currently living as an Air Force dependent in Germany with my spouse while they finish their 4-year tour. I will not be applying to PA school for another three years. I was wondering since I will have been out of school for six years when I apply, will this hurt my application? I don’t know if the time since my classes were taken, will work against me?

The courses that “time out” are Anatomy and Physiology. That course series must be completed within 5 years of matriculation so you may need to refresh those courses. – Carroll University

I am a medical graduate from India applying for PA program. When you talk about GPA, is it the GPA of the prerequisite courses or the bachelor’s degree too? I received my bachelors in 1995 and have completed the prerequisites in the past two years. So which one counts more towards selection process?

The prereqs which must be completed within 10 years of applying count towards the selection process so we wouldn’t look at your 1995 coursework at all actually. – Case Western Reserve

I have a biology degree but graduated in 2002, are there any courses that your program wants to be more recent?

All of the prerequisites have to be completed within 10 years of applying to our program.  – Case Western Reserve

Do classes have an expiration date? Also, can I repeat some of the undergrad courses at a community college?

College credits do not expire. I only suggest retaking if you did very poorly in a prereq. Some students will take refresher courses or upper-level science to get back into “student mode” but remember, community college credits are not as rigorous as 4-year university credits. – A.T. Still University

I graduated with a BS in 2011, taking some core science classes in 2007. Since graduating, I have been working as a certified medical assistant and now working with CHC on the central coast. Would I need to retake the core classes? 

No need to retake the prereqs. Having them completed more than 5 years ago is not ideal, but you have more recent coursework and clinical/volunteering to make up for it. So I suggest not worrying about retaking any courses unless you earned a C or below in one. – A.T. Still University

Summary: There is a surprisingly large amount of variation here between schools. Some schools do not have an expiration date on courses while others require all course be completed within a 10-year window and some require 5-year’s for certain courses and no expiration on others. This could open (or close) a lot of doors depending on when you completed your prerequisite coursework. Take home message: Do your research before you apply!

3. Can I Apply With Coursework in Progress?

I had taken Anatomy and Physiology (separate and both with their respective labs) over seven years ago. I will be retaking these courses next spring. Can I still apply during the upcoming cycle?

Yes, you can apply with coursework in progress, you would list it as either in progress or planned on the application. – A.T. Still University

Can I take biochemistry after submitting my application? If so, does not having taken this class reflect negatively on my application?

You can have three outstanding prerequisites at the time of application. You must show your plan to complete the courses prior to entering the program. It will not reflect poorly if you have not yet completed biochemistry – Butler University

Genetics is the only prerequisite I have not taken. Could my application still be reviewed considering I have additional classes that offer a more holistic approach to the medical field?

You can apply with one outstanding prerequisite (Genetics), however, if accepted you will need to prove you took the course by December 31st and passed with a B or better. – Yale University

Many programs only allow non-science courses to be “in progress.” Should I be worried that my Biochem will still be in progress when I apply? Should I wait to apply?

No more than two prerequisites can be outstanding at the time of application and they need to be done by the fall of the application year. – Case Western Reserve

Summary: The best bet is to try to have all your prerequisite coursework completed before you apply. If not, you better check with the PA program ADCOM, that being said, most schools allow one or two prerequisite courses to be outstanding at the time of application.

4. Do My Prerequisite Courses Fulfill The Requirements?

What do you accept for the human anatomy prerequisites? I attended Penn State University, where I have taken Biology 129, titled Mammalian Anatomy. I have also taken Biology 497, a human cadaver dissection course and I use the dissected cadavers to teach my section of the Biology 129 lab. So, the Biology 129 course is called Mammalian Anatomy, but it is primarily human-focused. Will these courses be sufficient for the human anatomy prerequisite? And if so, should I match both of them on the CASPA application?

Sometimes those need approval by our PA Chair on a case by case basis so if you have a question about a particular class I would email the chair and include a complete course description (and syllabus if you have it) so we can run that by the chair to get approval for you. – A.T. Still University

I have a question about some wording on your website concerning your prerequisite coursework. Per your website, the prerequisite biology classes must be “at or above the 200 level.” I have completed two combined anatomy and physiology courses with labs which are on par with what is usually required to apply. However, at my school, these were not listed as being at the “200 level”. Could you give any more information on this pre-requisite expectation? 

We will look at your transcripts and if your courses are listed at the 200 level or higher in a biology related course then the course will count as fulfilling a prerequisite. – Butler University

Is it possible to substitute organic chemistry with biochemistry for the prerequisites?

We are not able to substitute Biochem for Organic Chem – Duke University

For the 2-semester psychology requirement, will neuroscience count? It is listed under the psychology department at my undergraduate university.

Neuroscience offered through your psychology departement will be accepted as one of the two psychology prereqs. – Carroll University

I was wondering if students that are applying would be able to designate which courses they would like used as prerequisites such as the choice between organic chemistry and biochemistry. Will the course with a higher grade automatically be used?

When you are asked to complete our secondary application, you will identify which courses you believe best satisfy our pre-requisites. We then verify these courses across your entire transcript. So my advice would be to best align your course with our course not necessarily take a course less appropriate just because it received a higher grade. As for OChem vs. Biochem – it absolutely is your choice – we require either – or….not both.  – Penn State College of Medicine

Could you please let me know the equivalent courses for biochemistry and organic chemistry or the course numbers?

The program does not endorse any one course or university/college at which to take prerequisite courses. We do accept either undergraduate or graduate level courses for biochem and organic but they must be separate courses and they must be specific to biochem and organic, not overview courses that combine lots of different topics. – Case Western Reserve

What are your thoughts on having endocrinology as an upper-level bio class compared to some of the other upper-level bio courses?

While endocrinology is not a prerequisite for Yale, certainly any upper-level biology courses will only help enhance your application and prepare you for a rigorous curriculum in a PA Program. – Yale University

Summary: Tap into your college and university academic advisor and make a plan. When I was in college I followed a pre-med track through my junior year until I discovered PA school. I met with my academic advisor who suggested I pursue a Zoology degree so that I could meet my genetics, microbiology, and anatomy/physiology prerequisites. I suggest you create a spreadsheet ( here is one I have started for you ) and compare prerequisite coursework across programs. When you meet with your advisor you can formulate your attack plan. If there are uncertainties, as I will say a million times, contact a couple PA programs and fill the gaps with knowledge!

5. Do You Accept Online Prerequisite Coursework?

I live in a small town where there is a private university and a community college. I still need to take couple prereqs and was thinking of taking them through UNE online courses, because the school in my town is so much more expensive than UNE. Would the UNE online courses be accepted as a prereq?

Online courses count as long as they are taken at a regionally accredited institution – Duke University

Can we take prerequisite courses online and attached lab on the campus?

Our requirement is that all prerequisite courses with labs must be taken “on ground.” – Case Western Reserve

Summary: Be careful with online courses, while many schools accept online classes, some school require that courses be taken on site. Again best to check before you decide to pursue an online degree.

6. Is There a Minimum GPA for Prerequisite Coursework?

If I have a C in one of my prerequisites, but my overall prerequisite GPA is a B would you suggest I retake that course?

It is difficult to say if you should retake the prerequisite, certainly the higher the better for your prerequisite GPA, so it may be to your benefit. – Yale University

So, your guys’ pre-requisite courses do not necessarily expire, but all prereqs must be met with a grade of a B?

The prerequisites do not have a grade minimum, but we calculate an overall prerequisite GPA.  If you are admitted to the program and have one outstanding course, you must complete the course by December 31st and earn a grade of B or better. – Yale University

Do you require all prereqs to be completed with a B or higher, or does your cumulative GPA just need to be a 3.0 or higher?

Your cumulative needs to be a 3.0 or higher. – Case Western Reserve

Summary: GPA requirements are the bane of many well-intended pre-PAs existences. It was definitely mine, and it is the one area where schools vary across the spectrum on requirements. I suggest you use a combination of tools starting with my paschoolfinder.com PA program match tool (where you can sort schools by overall and science GPA requirements) along with the PAEA Program Directory . Unless you have an overall and science GPA of 3.4 it is best to do your homework. If you are applying with a low GPA read this post to see what the ADCOMs have to say.

7. Do You Accept Prerequisite Courses Completed at Different Colleges?

I took Anatomy and Physiology 1 at one school and Anatomy and Physiology 2 at another. Will this affect my application?

No this does not impact your application from our standpoint – Penn State College of Medicine

Summary: Most schools just want to see that you have completed your prerequisites and maintained a relatively high standard. Having completed your prerequisites at different schools isn’t a big deal. If you have been to five different colleges in four years you may have some explaining to do but otherwise, in the words of Bobby McFerrin ” Don’t Worry Be Happy . “

8. Is Lab Required?

I noticed one of the prereqs is a physiology with a lab. How important is having this lab requirement? I have taken physiology without a lab and multiple anatomy classes with labs. I am also having trouble finding physiology lab classes to take separately.

Physiology lab is indeed a basic pre-requisite. We are strict about that. – Case Western Reserve

Summary: If the requirement says “lab” well then, you better have the lab. Most biology, physics, chemistry and anatomy/physiology courses have this as part of the course. This is not where you want to cut corners.

9 How About Repeat Courses?

Does repeated college courses give a bad impression of a student?

It depends on how many and what the trajectory of your studies look like.. Everyone has rough spots but the question is if its a pattern or if its an isolated instance with steady improvement thereafter. – Case Western Reserve

Summary: I think the admissions team at A.T Stills said it best in my post about applying to PA school with a low GPA : “We look for an upward trend in grades. We understand that some students have a hard transition to college, or they do not find focus until later. All of your grades will be averaged together, however, we still look for an upward trend. You do want to be somewhat close to the average GPA though. For example, if your total GPA is a 2.8, that is going to be hard to overcome. If it is a 3.0 or higher, with significant other experiences, we can work with that to an extent.”

10. Graduate or Undergraduate Courses?

Does your program factor graduate level work differently than undergraduate?

It does not.  – Case Western Reserve

Summary: CASPA calculates a GPA for your masters as well as undergrad coursework, schools look at both and take both into account. They are usually factored equally, but the trend (as always) matters.

11. Dropped Courses?

Do you take into account if you dropped a class then ended up retaking it later on? Will it essentially effect the application in any way?

We do consider if an applicant dropped a class and retook it later.  – Case Western Reserve

Summary: Of course schools will factor in dropped courses, they are looking for candidates who can handle the rigors of an intensive 2-3 year program. So you need to be careful here. If you drop a course and retake it scoring a 3.7 it isn’t going to look so bad. But lots of dropped course without good reason will not reflect highly.

Highlights and Summary

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of CNA Classes

Share this out–its good stuff.

  • Facebook
  • Twitter

Training and working as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) is a unique opportunity that will allow you to see the true nature of the medical field. There can times of great pride and joy as a CNA, but you have to keep in mind that it is no easy task. If you feel that you may have what it takes, read on to see what you can expect from your CNA classes and training .

 

The Good

With the proper certification, training, and experience work as a CNA is one of the most secure job markets out there. There will always be a need for nursing assistants and there exists a wide range of possible career opportunities available to those with CNA training.

Many CNA classes offer flexible hours, or short training courses, in order to accommodate students. If you have a family life, another job, or are taking other classes, many CNA courses can be completed at a time or pace that suits you.

 

The Bad

Being a CNA can be a demanding job at times. There will always be those patients that get upset when you are trying to help them, but you must always remember what you are doing: helping them! They may not thank you, but you will feel better knowing that they are clean, comfortable and secure. Closely related to this, as well is the emotional nature of the job. As you work so closely with patients, however, there will be the chance that you will develop a close relationship and bond with those you treat. You will be thankful that you were able to make their lives that bit easier and more comfortable while you were with them, but the doesn’t mean it won’t be hard along the way. This is one of the most difficult and rewarding jobs you can take.

 

The Ugly

When you hear the term ‘nursing assistant’ there are a few images that may come to mind; some of which may not be pleasant. Working as CNA is not for those who are faint of heart. You will have a great deal of job satisfaction as a CNA, but you’ll have to deal with a few messes along the way. Everything in life comes at a cost, and one of the costs of becoming a CNA is seeing people at their worst. Bodily fluids, sadness from patients or their family, and high-pressure moments may occur on a regular basis. The work will be hard, and may not always be pretty, but there’s one thing we should never leave out. The impact you will make on your patients will be lifelong. While they may not remember you, you will always be able to appreciate that you helped someone for life.

 

The Best

If you are interested in pursuing a career in the medical profession, taking CNA classes can be an excellent way to learn about and understand all of the diverse areas of medical treatment and care. The work can be grueling, but the reward comes in two places. First, it comes from that fact that becoming a CNA includes a lot of job security and stability. Second, it comes from the fact that you’ve helped your patients along a difficult journey. You will have to take the good with the bad, and if you’re tough enough a career as a CNA can be more rewarding than anything else you would pursue.

5 Bad Habits to Avoid When Taking Online Classes

Brian

Online Degrees

There are a lot of advantages to taking classes online . While there may be occasions where you need to log in at a specific time to attend a lecture, do group work or watch a webinar, most of the time you can work on our classwork at any time of day. You get to work at your own pace. You don’t have to drive or walk to class. For many of us who juggle school and a full-time job, it’s a great way to get classwork to fit in your personal schedule. Yet along with these advantages, there are pitfalls. It can be easy to fall behind and more difficult to get help from your professor. When compared to a traditional classroom, it is just a different learning environment. There is less supervision and often less structure, which makes it easier to form bad habits – habits that could hinder your success in the class. Here are five bad habits to avoid when taking online classes .

1. Watching Television or Other Distractions While Studying

When you are physically in a class, there are others around you who are all paying attention (hopefully) to what the professor is teaching. Students are engaged and asking questions. Often in online classes, your classwork consists of reading or watching a lecture, and then writing and responding to discussion posts. It happens almost without you noticing it. You’re in your own personal space reading your class material. Then you quickly check your Facebook status or you have YouTube playing in the background or are catching up on the latest episode of your favorite show. Then your “class time” becomes a time suck. Suddenly your class material becomes the background. The studying that should have taken you an hour has now taken three hours and you really don’t remember what all of it was about. You wouldn’t bring Netflix or YouTube or Facebook into a conventional class, and you shouldn’t bring it into your virtual class either! Class time is class time.

2. Studying Whenever You Have the Time

The freedom that comes with being able to choose when you study can also be your downfall. You need to schedule and block out time each week for your class work. If you spend your week waiting for a free hour or two for study time to show itself, it’s never going to happen. If you don’t proactively schedule time, then likely you won’t have enough time to finish your work.

3. I’ll Just Log into the Class Once a Week

It’s important to remember that if you’re taking an online class, the only interaction you’ll have with your professor and other students is online. Login and check the information on your class at least once a day. You may find that the professor has added important information or changes to the classwork for that week or added clarification to something students didn’t understand. Make sure you know what is going on with your class.

4. I Didn’t Read the Syllabus

Remember that, since this is an online course, you will not have face time with your professor very often. The syllabus is an important part of an online course and you should refer to it regularly to make sure you are where you need to be in the course each week. It will tell you what you need to know and possibly even assignments you need to complete each week to stay caught up.

5. Discussion Posts are Dumb

Many online classes have a discussion board where you are asked to make posts and respond to posts each week on a particular topic. Often there is a stated minimum activity on the discussion board, such as a requirement to create one post on a particular topic or question and respond to two posts that other classmates have created. This is not a waste of time. It is the online equivalent of class discussion and class participation. It allows you to exchange ideas and questions with your classmates and gives the professor a way to assess how well you are grasping the material. It’s best to do more than the minimum suggested posts, so that you get the most out of your classroom participation time. For many online classes, participation in discussion posts is part of your grade for the class.

Online classes are convenient, and can be a great way to earn college credit. Avoiding these bad habits can help you be successful in your online class and help you avoid unnecessary stress.

scottish independence Essay

Scottish Independence
The position towards independence in Alistair Darling’s eyes is; “ the white paper is a work of fiction, thick with false promises and meaningless assertions”. The national referendum vote takes place on the 18th of September this year, and gives every Scottish citizen over the age of 16 the opportunity to chose whether Scotland should once again become an independent sovereign nation. Supporters of the independence vote argue that it would ensure the fairness in the way laws are passed; laws passed in the UK are voted by only people who live there which makes sense, so why when laws are being passed that only effect Scotland do England have a chance to vote? Most people argue that if England isn’t going to be effected then what relevance is their opinion? For instance the winter allowance for Scottish pensioners was voted on by English citizens, even though it didn’t effect them. Due to this Scotland and England share the same allowances, even though Scottish pensioners will see much harsher winters. More votes like this will be made due to the fact that there is more people living in England than Scotland, and therefore, Scottish citizens are being over ruled by simple mathematics. The Scottish government believe independence will change the welfare for us and our families lives as the decisions will be made by the people who care about Scotland “people who live and work here”. SNP argues that by making Scotland independent it gives every Scottish citizen the chance to be part of a society that is ran by only Scottish people. Therefore meaning we can shape our lives and Scottish economy without England having to agree. During a short advert made by SNP the voice of a girl named Kirsty puts across the good points for independence. The advert displays many points from, free higher education and uni placements based on your work capability and not your bank balance, to our wealth and national resources in the hands of the people who care about Scotland the most. The clip ends with two powerful statements; “ A no vote means we stay with the present system, Scotland stifle with the repeated failures of Westminster government “ and “ A yes vote means we chose a new direction for our country, with independence we can take the decisions right for us, we have got what it takes to build a fairer, greener, more prosperous country”. Westminster is not a democratic parliament as we had no say on who gained a job in the House of Lords. If Scotland was independent we would run our own democratic and fair government and us as citizens would have the chance to elect our own MPs. This way our country would be ran to our standards with people whom we believe is good enough for the job and if it came to the point where we did not like the MP we could vote for them to be removed from parliament. First Minister Alex Salmond believes that Scotland being its own nation works better for the North Sea industry on a whole and is taking a more scientific approach when it comes to independence by thinking about what will be better for Scotland’s future. Oil is finite and the problem is the majority of scientists believe oil will only last for another 30 to 40 years, even though according to a survey taken by Oil and Gas UK the supply of oil will be available way beyond 2055. Overall, cutting out the sharing of Scotland’s oil will make us a much stronger economy. There are many supporters for independence but as always there is those who are against it and they also have their valid reasons to why they believe this. Even though Scotland does not have complete control over their country, having England and us voting on each others laws isn’t always a bad thing, we are part of a bigger nation and this means we have a bigger voice. Scotland is only a small country and becoming independent will only make them smaller and many fear their voice wont be heard as much as bigger countries.…

Britain and Scotland have changed: The Tory Story of Britain is Dead

Britain and Scotland have changed: The Tory Story of Britain is Dead

Gerry Hassan

Bella Caledonia, October 3rd 2018

The British Conservative Party is one of the most successful electoral parties in the developed capitalist world. They might not look like it at the moment but this is a force which has adapted to numerous challenges and changes: the coming of the mass franchise and rise of the working class, emergence of Labour, the post-war settlement, and demise of Empire and the UK’s diminished global standing and influence.

The Tories are the party of privilege and entitlement; of a ruling class which has presided over a version of Britain which has been historically run for the few, not the many, but which has invited the vast majority of us into their political and social construction of prosperity, affluence and social mobility.

Having said that the Tory Party has always been more than the hard-nosed, selfish, greedy capitalists of leftist legend. Indeed, it can be said that the left-wing caricature of Toryism and Tories (‘Tory scum’ etc) has not only held back a more successful left politics, but it has aided Tories who have on occasion been able to defy these stereotypes: for example, in Macmillan’s promise to build 300,000 houses a year and by Thatcher’s council house sales appealing to working class voters.

Speaking for Scotland: The Salmond Case, Independence and the Silences of Modern Life

Speaking for Scotland: The Salmond Case, Independence and the Silences of Modern Life

Gerry Hassan

Scottish Review, September 5th 2018

The Salmond controversy has garnered huge press coverage. Beyond the actual cases itself, this says a lot about the state of Scotland. I am not making any assumptions about the guilt or innocence of Alex Salmond or the veracity of the accusations. This case is not just about Salmond or the allegations, but casts a wider light on some aspects of Scottish life, with certain parts of society not coming up smelling of roses.

A caveat. ‘This is what we have become’ said Kenny Farquharson. No ‘we’ have not. This is not about the ugliness and hatred in all of us, but in parts of Scotland. All societies have unsavoury opinion and haters: we have to confront ours and not give them the power of assuming they speak for all Scotland.

In this piece I concentrate primarily on the comments and attitudes of Salmond supporters – mostly the private citizens who responded to the crowdfunder, welter of comments on social media, and the odd intervention from public figures – and consider what their views tell us about what they think of the world.

  1. Salmond’s crowdfunder

Salmond’s crowdfunder was a statement of what he could do, and of what he has – status and pulling power. As Dani Garavelli wrote, ‘What was his crowdfunder, if not a display of power and popularity?’ It was a problematic action in relation to the course of justice being allowed to take its course. Glasgow University legal academic James Chalmers observed: ‘his crowdfunder does not state what decision he seeks to challenge in a JR [Judicial Review], nor what remedy he is seeking in that process’. And why does someone like Salmond need to go out with his collecting bucket to the general public? Read the rest of this entry »

Why the Alex Salmond controversy matters beyond politics

Why the Alex Salmond controversy matters beyond politics

Gerry Hassan

Scottish Review, August 29th 2018

There has only been one story in the last few days in Scotland; that of Alex Salmond.

The substantive allegations and Alex Salmond’s response and denial of any wrong-doing have been amply catalogued. The whole controversy covers many issues – alleged wrong doing, how to deal with such sensitive subjects, the role of the media and wider politics, and how justice is done and seen to be done, including how we treat those accused as well as their accusers.

Given there has been so much media coverage, instant comment and judgement I want to look at the big picture, and specifically two areas – how people have responded, and what, if any, wider consequences may flow from this.

Take the reactions of Salmond supporters. First it should be acknowledged that the vast majority of pro-independence and SNP opinion has publicly been very respectful and careful in what it has said. Nicola Sturgeon has set an important direction in what is a test of her leadership and clearly a difficult issue for her.

For a small minority of uber-believers Salmond can do no wrong and they will stand with him seemingly unconditionally. The range of responses this has brought has been telling, from social media images of ‘When I was in trouble … Alex stood with me … Until I hear differently, I’m with Alex’ to much more.

Jeremy Corbyn in Scotland: What he should say about Broken Britain

Jeremy Corbyn in Scotland: What he should say about Broken Britain

Gerry Hassan

New Statesman, August 23rd 2018

Jeremy Corbyn is in Scotland. He has problems understanding Scotland and the changing dynamics of the UK. Here is the speech he should give while here.

The backdrop to this speech is that Corbyn and his team have not been seen to understand Scotland or understand its distinct politics. The Scottish party, despite making six gains at last year’s general election (up from one seat in 2015), finished third in the polls, and no sign of recovery under Richard Leonard’s leadership looks on the cards – with the party regularly in third place in the polls behind the SNP and Tories.

Since last year’s election, the Corbyn leadership have begun to recognise that Scotland matters if they are to win a general election. Eighteen of the seats which Labour needs to win to form a majority government – and all of them need to be won from the SNP.

Scottish Labour has not gained from the Corbyn surge. It has had no major inflow of new members as in England and Wales. The people who would have joined a Corbyn led Labour in Scotland had already joined the SNP which after the indyref – expanded fivefold. Labour need to understand and reconnect with the energy and activism of left-wing independence opinion, and if it is to be listened to – develop a different politics on the constitution and future of Scotland and the UK.

How do we have public conversations in the age of rage?

How do we have public conversations in the age of rage?

Gerry Hassan

Scottish Review, August 15th 2018

Has the world of politics and public life ever been so messed up? And at a time of global confusion, disruption and challenge when intelligent politics is more needed than ever before.

British politics in the last week has seen stormy arguments over the rights and wrongs of Tory Boris Johnson and his comments about Muslim women wearing the burka. At the same time, Labour’s discomfort and problems over anti-semitism, which I wrote about last week, refuses to go away, continuing to plague the Corbyn leadership.

We are living in an age of bizarre cultural wars which show no sign of going away, that test the boundaries of what is and isn’t permissible comment, tolerance, and free speech. Read the rest of this entry »

Higher Education Policy Institute/Times Higher Education Scottish independence essay-writing competition

26th May 2014

Scottish Independence and higher education

Writers with strong opinions on what Scottish independence might mean for higher education are invited to enter the Higher Education Policy Institute/Times Higher Education Scottish independence essay-writing competition. The best pro- and anti-independence pieces will each win a £500 prize, and both essays will be published by THE. Nick Hillman, director of Hepi, said the competition was an opportunity for “students, academics and just interested watchers – from both sides of the border – to express their views”.

Entries must take a clear position for or against independence, and Mr Hillman said the competition was seeking essays “that may inject thoughts that have not been at the heart of the independence debate so far”. They do not necessarily need to cover all the consequences of independence for higher education, he added, and could focus on a single, original angle.

Entries should be submitted by 3 July 2014 to [email protected] , and should be no longer than 1,500 words.

Anyone may enter from any country and of any age.

How to Apply Transformational Leadership at Your Company

Transformational leadership is only one style of management, but it has the potential to empower your workforce to do more than you thought possible.

Thank you

Rich Hein

By Rich Hein

Senior Managing Editor,

CIO |

To be a leader and manager you need to have a solid understanding of things such as project management, organizational skills, managing employees and monitoring their performance, but even masters of these skills aren’t necessarily transformational leaders. These skills are simply the foundation on which a transformational leader is most effective.

Some people are just born with leaderships skills and the rest of us have to work at it. You’ve seen them before–the charismatic leaders who have a way of motivating the people around them. They instill a feeling that we are all accountable and that if one of us fails, we all fail.

Transformational Leadership Image

These leaders are on a mission to effect positive change for both the organization and the people they work with, and their energy and passion help fuel cohesion among peers and team members, allowing them to larger than the sum of their parts. They challenge long-held assumptions and don’t accept answers like, “because this is the way we’ve always done it.”

[ Beware the 9 warning signs of bad IT architecture and see why these 10 old-school IT principles still rule . | Sign up for CIO newsletters . ]

What Is Transformational Leadership?

Transformational problems are the critical issues a company or organization faces. Most times they relate to attitudes, behaviors and culture. They are rooted in the core and can be difficult to pinpoint without deep analysis.

“Woodrow Wilson called for leaders who, by boldly interpreting the nation’s conscience, could lift a people out of their everyday selves. That people can be lifted into their better selves is the secret of transforming leadership,” – James MacGregor Burns .

James MacGregor Burns is credited with creating the concept of transformational leadership in 1978. He was a presidential biographer and a leadership expert who focused mainly on the improvement of management principles and procedures.

Burns said that a transformational leader needs to have a solid understanding of the necessary goals to be successful and be articulate in explaining those goals and the method to which they are to be achieved.

[ Looking to upgrade your career in tech? This comprehensive online course teaches you how. ]

“Change doesn’t really happen at a company; it happens with people, so in order to lead change you have to know how to lead people,” says Pamela Rucker , chairwoman of the CIO Executive Council’s Executive Women in IT.

Transformational leaders are described as charismatic, enthusiastic, optimistic, passionate and sometimes visionary, giving them the ability to change long-held perceptions and beliefs. Those traits can spread like a wildfire; when they do, leaders and workers can engage more effectively allowing real transformation to take place.

Leadership Styles

Kevin Ford co-author of the upcoming book, “The Leadership Triangle” and CIO of Tag Consulting says he believes there are three kinds of successful leadership styles and that each one has its own place depending on the challenges you are facing:

  • Tactical: These leaders are solving pretty straight-forward problems. “Tactical issues are solved by expertise. Tactical challenges are the daily bread of the operations-oriented manager,” writes Ford in The Leadership Triangle.
  • Strategic: These leaders are working towards the future with a vision. “Visionaries are different in that they tend to be creative or generative in their approach. They have the ability to see the future and predict specific trends,” says Ford.
  • Transformational: This leader is a facilitator who doesn’t make decisions or establish strategic plans but, instead, facilitates a series of conversations among key stakeholders. “Transformational leaders are driven by a strong set of values and a sense of mission. Often times the strategic leader will have a vision but can’t execute it because they can’t deal with the transformative issues. A transformational leader has a more generalized vision, that’s one of the common good or what’s in the best interests of the stakeholders there.

The big difference, according to Ford, “is that the transformational leader doesn’t always know where things are going to wind up, only that it will be better than where we are today.” There is a time and place for each style, Ford says, but when companies are looking for a turnaround or to keep from getting left behind many times a transformational leader is what they are looking for.

What Embodies a Transformational Leader?

What qualities should a transformational leader possess? Here are thoughts from experts on the topic.

“If you want to transform something, you have to know what it is and not just the technology that supports it. You need to have a vision of where you want to go and be able to communicate it,” says Rucker.

In order to be transformative, according to Rucker, you need to have diversity of thought. You have to make sure that all the key stakeholders are represented in any decision that you make. You shouldn’t just have your own team coming up with ideas on what they think they know about the projects, the company or the industry. You have to honestly care about what these people [peers and stakeholders] want and need in order to make sure those needs are adequately represented and that every solution you provide has been vetted.

You need purposefully find good people with different perspectives who will shake things up and bring in new ideas. You can’t come up with all the ideas yourself. Find a way to look for experts in whatever you are trying to achieve, you have to challenge long-term assumptions people may have,” says Rucker.

“A transformational leader has to be strategic from a planning and objective setting perspective, a strong communicator that can be trusted so that by extension people are willing to ‘get on the bus’, and both be passionate & focused in order to drive change from inception to a successful conclusion, “says Greg Stewart , vice president and CIO of Enerflex.

“Some people see a transformational leader as someone who comes in and radically changes everything and I don’t see it that way,” says Jeffrey S. Shipley, vice president and CIO at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City.

“I see it as more of a mentoring or coaching role. It’s about motivation, empowerment and morale of the employees. You have to take the time to individualize, be the role model and understand people and how they think. You need to challenge long-term assumptions and beliefs and think about things a different way,” Shipley says.

“Transformational leadership, as we understand it, is mobilizing people to the common good. The ability to create a safe place to have conversations and voice ideas is very important. Ethics, morality and integrity are a huge part of transformational leadership, even if it’s not in the best interest of self. The transformational leader needs to build trust and that can’t be done in the short-term, it can only be done in the long-term. Anyone can be a transformational leader; it’s all contextual and it’s all driven by scale,” says Ford.

For a look at how to draw out your transformational leadership qualities in your resume, see ” IT resume makeover: Highlighting transformational leadership .”

5 Things You Need to Facilitate Transformation

1. Intellectual Stimulation

By rocking the boat and asking questions, transformational leaders are always challenging the status quo and aren’t afraid of failure. They foster an environment where it’s safe to have conversations, be creative and voice ideas, a place where all team members feel valued. They challenge cultural norms and work to inspire passion with their teams and peers. As Rucker puts it, they are adept at, “turning me moments into we moments.”

Shipley says that managers who have a command-and-control style of leadership can get a lot accomplished, but, he says, they achieve short-term. You can have great success but you can’t maintain long-term success that way.”

A better approach, Shipley says, is to guide your team, but let them solve the problem on their own.

2. Individualized Consideration

Is the golden rule flawed? Maybe not but consider this: Don’t treat people how you want to be treated, treat them the way they want to be treated. People are different and what motivates and excites you is different from your peers and coworkers. “You have to learn to adapt your style to accommodate the skills and people on your team,” says Rucker.

3. Inspirational Motivation

Know where you want to go and create a vision or strategy to get there and then articulate, with optimism and passion, your vision to show them how all this matters in the big picture. “It’s really the meaning behind why you’re doing the job you’re doing that’s so important to communicate to people. I take great pride in understanding my employees and what motivates them,” says Shipley. He offers this analogy:

Two guys are digging a ditch, so I asked one of them, “What are you doing?” He says digging a ditch, what’s it look like I’m doing? I asked the other guy the same question and he says, “I’m building a hospital.”

It’s getting into the minds of the people so that they understand that whatever task they’re doing, they’re not doing that task, they’re a part of something larger “They aren’t digging a ditch or writing that code; they are transforming the way healthcare is delivered in this country,” says Shipley.

4. Idealized Influence

“Divorced from ethics, leadership is reduced to management and politics to mere technique,” writes Burns.

Transformational leadership requires decision-making that works towards the greater good. You need to be a mentor of sorts and lead by example. “Values-based leadership is necessary for driving sustainable change as this ensures that the results achieved are underpinned with a strong moral and ethical foundation, thus they can also stand up to any scrutiny or resistance to change,” says Stewart.

5. Perseverance Through Conflict

Experts agree that transformational change will create conflict. You’re going to have people fight and/or ignore you. “You have to master the role by figuring out how you’re going to get all these people to work with you. Doing that will change the position you have into the power you need to change the company,” says Rucker.

Are you ready to take up the mantle of the transformational leader? You don’t have to be the boss to do so. “Anyone can be a transformational leader, it’s all contextual and it’s all driven by scale,” says Ford.

To be a leader and manager you need to have a solid understanding of things such as project management, organizational skills, managing employees and monitoring their performance, but even masters of these skills aren’t necessarily transformational leaders. These skills are simply the foundation on which a transformational leader is most effective.

Some people are just born with leaderships skills and the rest of us have to work at it. You’ve seen them before–the charismatic leaders who have a way of motivating the people around them. They instill a feeling that we are all accountable and that if one of us fails, we all fail.

Transformational Leadership Image

These leaders are on a mission to effect positive change for both the organization and the people they work with, and their energy and passion help fuel cohesion among peers and team members, allowing them to larger than the sum of their parts. They challenge long-held assumptions and don’t accept answers like, “because this is the way we’ve always done it.”

What Is Transformational Leadership?

Transformational problems are the critical issues a company or organization faces. Most times they relate to attitudes, behaviors and culture. They are rooted in the core and can be difficult to pinpoint without deep analysis.

“Woodrow Wilson called for leaders who, by boldly interpreting the nation’s conscience, could lift a people out of their everyday selves. That people can be lifted into their better selves is the secret of transforming leadership,” – James MacGregor Burns .

James MacGregor Burns is credited with creating the concept of transformational leadership in 1978. He was a presidential biographer and a leadership expert who focused mainly on the improvement of management principles and procedures.

Burns said that a transformational leader needs to have a solid understanding of the necessary goals to be successful and be articulate in explaining those goals and the method to which they are to be achieved.

“Change doesn’t really happen at a company; it happens with people, so in order to lead change you have to know how to lead people,” says Pamela Rucker , chairwoman of the CIO Executive Council’s Executive Women in IT.

Transformational leaders are described as charismatic, enthusiastic, optimistic, passionate and sometimes visionary, giving them the ability to change long-held perceptions and beliefs. Those traits can spread like a wildfire; when they do, leaders and workers can engage more effectively allowing real transformation to take place.

Leadership Styles

Kevin Ford co-author of the upcoming book, “The Leadership Triangle” and CIO of Tag Consulting says he believes there are three kinds of successful leadership styles and that each one has its own place depending on the challenges you are facing:

  • Tactical: These leaders are solving pretty straight-forward problems. “Tactical issues are solved by expertise. Tactical challenges are the daily bread of the operations-oriented manager,” writes Ford in The Leadership Triangle.
  • Strategic: These leaders are working towards the future with a vision. “Visionaries are different in that they tend to be creative or generative in their approach. They have the ability to see the future and predict specific trends,” says Ford.
  • Transformational: This leader is a facilitator who doesn’t make decisions or establish strategic plans but, instead, facilitates a series of conversations among key stakeholders. “Transformational leaders are driven by a strong set of values and a sense of mission. Often times the strategic leader will have a vision but can’t execute it because they can’t deal with the transformative issues. A transformational leader has a more generalized vision, that’s one of the common good or what’s in the best interests of the stakeholders there.

The big difference, according to Ford, “is that the transformational leader doesn’t always know where things are going to wind up, only that it will be better than where we are today.” There is a time and place for each style, Ford says, but when companies are looking for a turnaround or to keep from getting left behind many times a transformational leader is what they are looking for.

What Embodies a Transformational Leader?

What qualities should a transformational leader possess? Here are thoughts from experts on the topic.

“If you want to transform something, you have to know what it is and not just the technology that supports it. You need to have a vision of where you want to go and be able to communicate it,” says Rucker.

In order to be transformative, according to Rucker, you need to have diversity of thought. You have to make sure that all the key stakeholders are represented in any decision that you make. You shouldn’t just have your own team coming up with ideas on what they think they know about the projects, the company or the industry. You have to honestly care about what these people [peers and stakeholders] want and need in order to make sure those needs are adequately represented and that every solution you provide has been vetted.

You need purposefully find good people with different perspectives who will shake things up and bring in new ideas. You can’t come up with all the ideas yourself. Find a way to look for experts in whatever you are trying to achieve, you have to challenge long-term assumptions people may have,” says Rucker.

“A transformational leader has to be strategic from a planning and objective setting perspective, a strong communicator that can be trusted so that by extension people are willing to ‘get on the bus’, and both be passionate & focused in order to drive change from inception to a successful conclusion, “says Greg Stewart , vice president and CIO of Enerflex.

“Some people see a transformational leader as someone who comes in and radically changes everything and I don’t see it that way,” says Jeffrey S. Shipley, vice president and CIO at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City.

“I see it as more of a mentoring or coaching role. It’s about motivation, empowerment and morale of the employees. You have to take the time to individualize, be the role model and understand people and how they think. You need to challenge long-term assumptions and beliefs and think about things a different way,” Shipley says.

“Transformational leadership, as we understand it, is mobilizing people to the common good. The ability to create a safe place to have conversations and voice ideas is very important. Ethics, morality and integrity are a huge part of transformational leadership, even if it’s not in the best interest of self. The transformational leader needs to build trust and that can’t be done in the short-term, it can only be done in the long-term. Anyone can be a transformational leader; it’s all contextual and it’s all driven by scale,” says Ford.

For a look at how to draw out your transformational leadership qualities in your resume, see ” IT resume makeover: Highlighting transformational leadership .”

5 Things You Need to Facilitate Transformation

1. Intellectual Stimulation

By rocking the boat and asking questions, transformational leaders are always challenging the status quo and aren’t afraid of failure. They foster an environment where it’s safe to have conversations, be creative and voice ideas, a place where all team members feel valued. They challenge cultural norms and work to inspire passion with their teams and peers. As Rucker puts it, they are adept at, “turning me moments into we moments.”

Shipley says that managers who have a command-and-control style of leadership can get a lot accomplished, but, he says, they achieve short-term. You can have great success but you can’t maintain long-term success that way.”

A better approach, Shipley says, is to guide your team, but let them solve the problem on their own.

2. Individualized Consideration

Is the golden rule flawed? Maybe not but consider this: Don’t treat people how you want to be treated, treat them the way they want to be treated. People are different and what motivates and excites you is different from your peers and coworkers. “You have to learn to adapt your style to accommodate the skills and people on your team,” says Rucker.

3. Inspirational Motivation

Know where you want to go and create a vision or strategy to get there and then articulate, with optimism and passion, your vision to show them how all this matters in the big picture. “It’s really the meaning behind why you’re doing the job you’re doing that’s so important to communicate to people. I take great pride in understanding my employees and what motivates them,” says Shipley. He offers this analogy:

Two guys are digging a ditch, so I asked one of them, “What are you doing?” He says digging a ditch, what’s it look like I’m doing? I asked the other guy the same question and he says, “I’m building a hospital.”

It’s getting into the minds of the people so that they understand that whatever task they’re doing, they’re not doing that task, they’re a part of something larger “They aren’t digging a ditch or writing that code; they are transforming the way healthcare is delivered in this country,” says Shipley.

4. Idealized Influence

“Divorced from ethics, leadership is reduced to management and politics to mere technique,” writes Burns.

Transformational leadership requires decision-making that works towards the greater good. You need to be a mentor of sorts and lead by example. “Values-based leadership is necessary for driving sustainable change as this ensures that the results achieved are underpinned with a strong moral and ethical foundation, thus they can also stand up to any scrutiny or resistance to change,” says Stewart.

5. Perseverance Through Conflict

Experts agree that transformational change will create conflict. You’re going to have people fight and/or ignore you. “You have to master the role by figuring out how you’re going to get all these people to work with you. Doing that will change the position you have into the power you need to change the company,” says Rucker.

Are you ready to take up the mantle of the transformational leader? You don’t have to be the boss to do so. “Anyone can be a transformational leader, it’s all contextual and it’s all driven by scale,” says Ford.

    Wonderful creative course based on expression. It is more a general information course to inspire you and opening you up to the freedom of creative expression. This is not art theory or how to draw kind of course but does show you how to explore art. Definitely worth doing.

    Good course. Amazing how much it covers. I noticed som negative comments from a minority of people who signed up for the course. They are forgetting one fact in my opinion.That is, this is an introductory class for begginers. One sentece the instructor mentioned in module 1: " you need to be Patient, Persistent and to PRACTICE.." I also noticed that are all start with capital P. So give em a break and be positive. This also starts with a "P"

    My Favorite Things. Essay

    689 words – 3 pages

    It is often said that the best things in life are free, I, for one, fully agree with the statement. To me, “best” does not imply the most beautiful or glamorous, or the most indulgent or heavenly, but it is those things which I held to be the most valuable and precious in my life. Most people would choose to write about their role model (usually their mother), or the sunset, or even the rain. Some would write about food, others about clothes.

    I, on the other hand, have “favourite” things of a very different kind. It might sound strange, but my favourite things are: my eyes, my nose, my mouth, my ears, and my hands. Although they are nothing out of the ordinary (no unfortunately I haven’t been blessed with aquamarine eyes, or perfectly pouting lips), these features are my favourite things because of their ability to evoke in me experience of pure, unadulterated bliss.

    Take my eyes, for instance. People say that one’s eyes are the window to one’s soul. Then I must have a fairly bleak, run-of-the mill type of soul, for what you will see when you look at my eyes are two dark-brown, round buttons. They do not exude any magnetism; neither do they give off an aura of mystery and melodrama. But, they have been the rolls with which I have been able to witness many a beautiful sunset. The sun spreads its mosaic of colour on the horizon, amidst wisps of drifting clouds, as hues of russet pink and violet glisten across the sapphire sky. Then, darkness tears the sky asunder, as day slips into night, providing a canvas for the vast constellation of stars that sparkle majestically, illuminated by the glow of the moon. Serenity fills my souls and soothes my mind as the magnificence and splendour of the sunset captives me.

    My next favourite thing is my nose, a feature that quite dominant on my visage, conspiracy exhibiting its own sense of prominence. I assume that it could serve as a rather good model to demonstrate inclined planes in a Physics practical or…

    To add on, Hermia is my favorite character in A Midsummer Night’s Dream because she is virtuous and stays true to her standards.

My moral standards have always been something I take so much pride in as I don’t let anyone deteriorate me from my path. Hermia also shows

    Descriptive Essay on my Favorite Food

    • Introduction: This will include your favorite meal, and why you love it.
    • 1st Body Paragraph: This paragraph should introduce your first reason for settling on the food as your favorite.

    “Pizza is the best delicacy in the entire world. The sensation one feels when the sauce flows off it into the mouth is the best feeling and it cannot compare to any other type of food.”

    • 2nd Body Paragraph: This section shall introduce your second reason.

    “I have amazing memories of the moments we spent with my friend Joe. He owned a pizzeria where we used to share fun eating pizza occasionally having pizza fights.”

    • 3rd Body Paragraph: This paragraph has a third and final reason.

    “Pizza was one food I used to cook with my parents growing up – it really brought us closer together.”

    • Conclusion: This is where you summarize your paper by paraphrasing your thesis statement and restating why you love the food.

    How to start

    The structure of an essay is categorized into an introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion. The thesis statement may be the first or the final statement in the introduction that summarizes the main arguments to be discussed in the task. The paragraphs in the body are introduced using topic sentences that are discussed in detail using supporting sentences. In conclusion, the piece is summarized by restating the main highlights brought forward in the body paragraphs.

    Food is a fascinating topic to discuss owing to some reasons. The most elemental one being it is a basic need that people can naturally feel for and relate. This is because basic instincts such as hunger and emotions, including love and anger can be freely expressed and one can produce high standard papers about them in a short span. This is because the author has much of the information in their brains and as such minimal research is required on the topic.

    For example, thus far in the essay, it is highly likely that the thought of your favorite food has crossed your mind. You can comfortably describe how your favorite food feels, narrate its benefits and smell, recall how it’s prepared and you might have a craving for the meal at the moment. This is the same for students at all levels. In case you do not have adequate evidence on the matter of the type of paper you are required to write, you can collect information on the same from relevant materials.

    How to write the introduction

    An essay on any topic should be started using a brief introduction on the subject to be discussed with the audience. Similarly, a piece of food should be commenced by introducing the different type of food that will be discussed. The areas to be addressed in the section include a brief introduction into how you have developed the eating habits, the types of foods that have featured in our diets for a couple of centuries as well as the new ones. You are not only required to provide the writer with an introduction on the food that you intend to discuss but also clearly state a thesis statement of your discussion. The piece should be based on a solid idea. Having the thesis statement as the first sentence is a brilliant approach to capturing the reader’s attention as well as giving the essay a more academic and professional edge. In the first section, the student can present their opinion on the topic in a summary and maybe include a small anecdote. These are interesting approaches to ensure the reader is engrossed in your piece and follow the ideas being presented. In the body paragraphs, the essay writer should introduce the facts, logic, and ideas gathered from references. In the beginning is where the student can maintain a light and easy reading tone.

    In a nutshell, to write an introduction, make sure you are clear on what you are being asked, and what you want to say. Gather the information you want to convey, get your thesis statement prepared, and remember that you can’t make an original argument in the introduction itself.

    How to write the thesis statement

    Writing a thesis statement is as simple as choosing what the ultimate point of your research is, and putting it into words.

    Example of the thesis statement

    Pizza is such a wonderful food to eat because there are endless ways to have it; that is why it is my favorite food.

    Writing an Essay on Favorite Food, customessayorder.com

    Example of the introduction

    Pizza is such a wonderful food to eat because there are endless ways to have it; that is why it is my favorite food. Whether you are making it with someone, or know someone who can provide you with good pizza, it is never far away, and it is always good. Pizza, much like food, brings people together.

    How to write body paragraphs

    Tips on body writing

    This should commence with recognizing the type of assignment. This is because the tone in an argumentative paper is different from that in an informative one. Once you are clear on the kind of job, you can select the data and topic appropriately. The next step is to settle on the kind of food that you intend to discuss and why the issue is so important to you. It is followed by the development of an outline and lastly commences writing on your topic.

    1. One paragraph for each argument, otherwise it gets too complicated
    2. Have a topic sentence and a concluding sentence
    3. Reference the thesis statement
    4. Do your research
    5. Write clearly and coherently

    Example of body paragraphs

    1st body paragraph

    I love pizza so much purely for the tactile sensations, it gives me. Being able to enjoy vegetables, stringy melted cheese, and the liquid nature of the tomato sauce is truly divine. Pizza is one of the few dishes which combines textures and flavours in this way, which is why I enjoy it so much.

    2nd body paragraph

    I love pizza because it connects me so strongly to my memories of Joe, my friend. We used to share pizza and have pizza fights all the time when I was growing up – some of my best memories are of him, and it is a huge part of why pizza is one of my favorite things to eat.

    3rd body paragraph

    Pizza is a dish which is very easy to cook communally. It makes for a great family bonding experience, and I remember many nights spent with my family deciding what should go on the pizza, and how it should be placed. Pizza is a very communal dish, and I have a lot of happy memories from that.

    How to conclude

    In conclusion, you should discuss why it is your favorite food and how it is prepared. It is prudent to ensure you have enough reasons to consider concerning the food. Discuss the information you can recall in your mind and research on the areas that may be lacking to ensure that you find your favorite food comprehensively.

    1. Restate the thesis statement
    2. Make sure to reference every argument
    3. Sum everything up
    4. Don’t make any original arguments
    5. Remember that this is your last chance to impress people.

    Conclusion example

    Pizza is a wonderful food for me because of how it is prepared, and the memories I have associated with it. Pizza is such a wonderful food to eat because there are endless ways to have it; that is why it is my favorite food. My family and my friends are both involved in this section of my memories, and all together it combines to make some of my happiest memories.

    Essay revision

    Revisions is just as important a step as everything else. It should take in the whole essay, because this is your last chance to make sure that the essay will pass muster.

    1. Pay attention to the bibliography
    2. Revise once for grammar, once for formatting
    3. Remember to check that you are using the correct citation style
    4. Ask someone else to look over your essay for you
    5. Remember to check that the thesis statement makes sense.

    Alison Doyle
    Updated September 21, 2018

    Along with your resume , a cover letter provides an opportunity to impress a potential employer with both your professionalism and how well you would fit in with the company’s mission and culture.

    How you format your cover letter, both from a content (the information you include) and a presentation (what your cover letter looks like) perspective is important. Even when applying online or via email, your cover letter needs to be properly formatted, readable, and without any mistakes.

    Cover letters to send with resumes follow the format of a formal business letter . They are written in paragraph form and include a formal salutation, closing, and signature. It’s important to write a targeted cover letter that shows how you are qualified for the job for which you’re applying. Each cover letter you write should be unique and customized.

    What Content to Include in Your Cover Letter

    1. First Paragraph – Why you are writing
    2. Middle Paragraphs – What you have to offer
    3. Concluding Paragraph – How you’ll follow-up

    Paragraph 1: Why You Are Writing

    • If you are writing in response to a job posting ( review samples ), indicate where you learned of the position and the title of the position. More importantly, express your enthusiasm and the likely match between your credentials and the position’s qualifications.
    • If you are writing a prospecting letter ( review samples ) in which you inquire about possible job openings – state your specific job objective. Since this type of letter is unsolicited, it is even more important to capture the reader’s attention.
    • If you are writing a networking letter ( review samples ) to approach an individual for information, make your request clear.

    In some cases, you may have been referred to a potential employer by a friend or acquaintance. Be sure to mention this mutual contact by name in your first paragraph to encourage your reader to keep reading!

    Paragraph 2: What You Have to Offer

    In responding to a job advertisement, refer specifically to the qualifications listed and illustrate how your particular abilities and experiences relate to the position for which you are applying.

    In a prospecting letter, express your potential to fulfill the employer’s needs rather than focusing on what the employer can offer you. You can do this by giving evidence that you have researched the organization thoroughly and that you possess skills used within that organization.

    Emphasize your achievements and problem-solving skills. Show how your education and work skills are transferable, and thus relevant, to the position for which you are applying.

    Paragraph 3: How You Will Follow Up 

    Close by reiterating your interest in the job and letting the employer know how they can reach you. Include your phone number and email address. Or bid directly for the job interview or informational interview and indicate that you will follow-up with a telephone call to set up an appointment at a mutually convenient time. If you mention that you will be in touch, be sure to make the call within the time frame indicated.

    In some instances, an employer may explicitly prohibit phone calls, or you may be responding to a “blind want-ad” which precludes you from this follow-up. Unless this is the case, make your best effort to reach the organization. At the very least, you should confirm that your materials were received and that your application is complete.

    If you are applying from outside the employer’s geographic area, you may want to indicate if you’ll be in town during a certain time frame (this makes it easier for the employer to agree to meet with you).

    In conclusion, you may indicate that your references are available on request. Also, if you have a portfolio or writing samples to support your qualifications, state their availability.

    Tips for Formatting Your Cover Letter

    Ashley DeLeon. © The Balance 2018

    Letter Length
    A cover letter should be three or four paragraphs at most , and shouldn’t be longer than one page. If you need to you can adjust the margins (see below) to fit your letter on a single page.

    Pick a Simple Font
    Cover letter presentation matters as much as what you include. When writing cover letters, it’s important to use a basic font that is easy to read. Depending on the  hiring process  your cover letter may be viewed  in an applicant tracking system  or other online hiring system. Those systems work best reading simple text rather than fancy formatting.

    Using a basic 12 point font will ensure that your cover letter is easy to read. Basic fonts like Arial, Verdana, Calibri, and Times New Roman work well. Your cover letter font should match the font you use in your resume.

    Set Your Margins
    The standard margins for a business letter are 1″. However, if you are having trouble condensing your letter to fit on a single page you can shorten up the top, bottom and side margins to 3/4″ or 1/2″ or even a little tighter.

    Leave Plenty of White Space
    Don’t forget to leave space below your greeting, between each paragraph, and after your closing.

    Carefully Proofread the Letter
    Take the time to proof your letter before you send or upload it. It can be easier to double check if you print out a copy or read it out loud.

    Dear Mr. Lee:

    I am writing to apply for the position of part-time Front Desk Receptionist as posted on LocalJobs.com. After reading the posting, I’m confident I would be an excellent fit for your office. In addition to my experience as a receptionist, last summer I worked as a night auditor at a local hotel.

    I’m currently a sophomore at Northern University, and my schedule would fit the role well because I have nights and weekends free. When I was in high school, I worked as a part-time receptionist for a local dentist. I’m particularly proud that I was given the responsibilities of a receptionist at such a young age. I learned how to work with people, answer phones, schedule patients and answer many of their questions.

    I’ve attached my resume so you can see my current education, goals, and experience. My email is [email protected], and my cell phone is 555-555-5555. I would like to schedule a time to discuss the job opportunity.

    Sincerely,

    Carson Applicant (signature hard copy letter)

    Abstract

    A culture of quality improvement (QI) is needed to bridge the gap between possible STEEEP™ (safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and patient-centered) care and actual usual care. Baylor Health Care System (BHCS) developed Accelerating Best Care at Baylor (ABC Baylor), an innovative educational program that teaches health care leaders the theory and techniques of rapid-cycle QI. Course participants learn general principles of continuous QI, as well as health care–specific QI techniques, and finish the course by designing and implementing their own QI project. ABC Baylor has been employed in a variety of settings and has spread its success to other organizations, especially small and rural hospitals. These hospitals, like BHCS, have demonstrated sustained improvements that are due in part to the use of ABC Baylor and its reliance on specific modules that focus on health care safety, service, equity, and chronic disease management. The role of ABC Baylor training and consulting is part of the overall culture and infrastructure that have allowed BHCS to achieve success in its improvement journey, including the receipt of several national awards and the achievement of high reliability in compliance with Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services core measures of processes of care related to heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, community-acquired pneumonia, and surgical care. The culture of rapid-cycle QI facilitated by ABC Baylor serves to link BHCS’s vision and goals to practical execution.

    In 1999, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released its landmark report, To Err Is Human, which estimated that there are close to 90,000 annual preventable deaths in the United States secondary to flaws in health care delivery processes ( 1 ). The IOM’s second report in 2001, Crossing the Quality Chasm, defined high-quality health care as care that is safe, timely, effective, efficient, equitable, and patient-centered (STEEEP™) ( 2 ). In accord with these reports, the health care industry has recognized the need to improve the safety and reliability of health care. Moreover, the concept of “value-driven health care” recently emerged to reflect the need for transparency in pricing, transparency in quality, and demonstrable efforts to improve quality and safety ( 3 ). Both the public and the payers are holding the health care industry accountable.

    Across many industries, the term “high reliability” refers to a low rate of product defects ( 4 , 5 ). For example, Ireson has defined reliability as “the capability of the product to perform the specified function in the designated environment for a minimum length of time or a minimum number of cycles or events” ( 5 ). While the definition of a product defect may be relatively straightforward in an industry such as electronics, it is less clear how to define defective care in the health care industry. One example of a defect in care may be a case in which a physician misses the opportunity to recommend a mammogram to an eligible patient. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has defined defective health care as the failure of a hospital to comply with 24 recommended, evidence-based processes of care related to heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, community-acquired pneumonia, and surgical care. These best practices are collectively referred to as core measures ( 6 ). In addition, some professional organizations such as the Society of Thoracic Surgeons have defined recommended processes of care for each surgical intervention ( 7 ). Improving the reliability of health care across core measures means increasing the proportion of patients who receive all recommended best practices.

    A culture of quality improvement (QI) is needed to improve the reliability of health care and thereby bridge the gap between possible STEEEP care and actual usual care ( 2 , 8 , 9 ). By training staff in QI techniques and adopting an organizational focus on health care improvement, organizations have improved all dimensions of STEEEP measures, including equality ( 10 ), efficiency ( 11 ), patient-centeredness ( 12 ), and safety and clinical effectiveness as defined by CMS core measures ( 13 ) and health care process measures for cardiovascular illness ( 14 , 15 ) and pneumonia ( 16 ). But despite the success of QI programs and their use in health care since at least 1995 ( 17 ), hospitals vary in their ability to train staff, implement the programs, and sustain health care improvement as an organizational focus ( 18 , 19 ). Many of these differences arise from factors such as organizational leadership, hospital culture, hospital size, and inertia ( 20 , 21 ); moreover, small and rural hospitals may lack the resources to implement QI programs ( 22 – 25 ). These are differences that must be overcome for successful adoption of QI programs. Disseminating information and lessons learned from successful QI programs is one way to help hospitals overcome barriers to implementation ( 13 , 26 , 27 ).

    This article describes a successful health care QI training program and its implementation and sustainability in a large, integrated health care system.

    ABC BAYLOR: THE PROGRAM

    Setting and origins: Baylor Health Care System

    Baylor Health Care System (BHCS) is an integrated health care delivery system that comprises 20 owned, leased, or affiliated hospitals; 5 short-stay hospitals; more than 80 primary care, specialty care, and senior health centers; 12 rehabilitation clinics; 18 ambulatory surgery centers; more than 400 physicians employed by the HealthTexas Provider Network; 3000 other BHCS-affiliated physicians; and the Baylor Research Institute.

    In September 2000, the BHCS Board of Trustees passed a resolution on QI:

    Whereas, maintaining the status quo or achieving quality and safety levels only equal to or slightly better than national, regional, or local norms is not compatible with the BHCS Vision and Mission Statements; … and Whereas, regulatory and legislative changes and a growing number of more informed patients support better quality patient care and safety; … Therefore, be it resolved, that the Board of Trustees of Baylor Health Care System hereby challenges itself and everyone involved in providing health care throughout the system to give patient safety and continuous improvement in the quality of patient care the highest priority in the planning, budgeting and execution of all activities in order to achieve significant, demonstrable and measurable positive improvement in the quality of patient care and safety.

    BHCS affirmed its commitment to this resolution by creating the Institute for Health Care Research and Improvement and recruiting the appropriate talent to lead its efforts. In 2001, the Best Care Committee was formed to oversee the planning, budgeting, execution, and reporting of activities to improve the quality and safety of care throughout BHCS. Health care improvement leadership continued to be developed through exposure to multiple resources, such as participation in the Institute for Healthcare Improvement Breakthrough Series projects ( 28 ), as well as the training of 30 physician, nursing, and administrative leaders in the Intermountain Healthcare Advanced Training Program in Health Care Delivery Improvement ( 29 ).

    Inspired and supported by Intermountain Healthcare, BHCS developed and launched its own training program, “Accelerating Best Care at Baylor” (ABC Baylor) ( 30 ), in 2003. ABC Baylor, an innovative educational program focused on health care QI, teaches health care leaders the theory and techniques of rapid-cycle QI, outcomes management, and staff development. It facilitates the enhancement of skills needed by physicians, nurses, administrators, and others to lead QI efforts ( 27 , 30 ).

    Although numerous QI programs are available through external consultants, BHCS decided to develop internal resources to train its workforce in techniques of continuous quality improvement (CQI) rather than outsource the training to external entities. This decision was based on the recognition that a more reliable health care delivery organization needs to incorporate CQI as one of its core competencies and needs to develop the necessary talent internally. This decision also allowed BHCS to standardize the language and tools used for CQI.

    Differences between ABC Baylor and other QI training programs include the integration of the main messages of the IOM, including the need for STEEEP health care ( 2 ); reliance on QI examples that include clinical care; simplicity of the material and exclusion of advanced statistical concepts; and individual modules that focus on health care safety, service, equity, and chronic disease management.

    ABC Baylor training objectives and curriculum

    ABC Baylor’s first objective is to have a cultural impact on participants by creating a sense of urgency around the quality chasm described by the IOM ( 2 ) and around the need to adopt health care improvement methods. Next, ABC Baylor aims to provide experiential training in tools of health care improvement using a variety of sources such as classic CQI ( 4 ), total quality management ( 31 ), Lean ( 32 ), Six Sigma ( 33 ), and Toyota production systems ( 34 ). Results of a participant satisfaction survey, as well as informal comments from both faculty and participants, suggest that the amalgamation of the two previous objectives results in a synergistic compounding benefit beyond the benefit derived from non–health care-specific training programs in QI techniques.

    The ABC curriculum contains two major components:

    • Specific principles of CQI that cover team building, feedback skills, process modeling, data system design, Pareto techniques, statistical process control, and cost-quality relations
    • Clinical improvement modules that cover customer service skills, safety, equity, and chronic care

    Five ABC courses target different members of the health care community. The four-session core course, which is aimed at change leaders (physicians and nursing and administrative leaders), entails didactic instruction and design, implementation, and evaluation of a QI initiative. The course introduces administrative and clinical leaders to QI methods and ways to measure and analyze evaluations; helps them to understand the relationship between quality and cost; and provides a general understanding of statistical variation, the tools of patient safety, and leadership strategies for QI.

    In Session 1, course participants learn about the urgency for QI in health care, improvement tools, evidence-based care, basic statistics, and methods for improved communication. Sessions 2 and 3 focus on different modules of health care QI, including patient safety, service excellence, health care equity, and improvement of chronic care. The modules include a general lecture, a discussion of the current state of BHCS with regard to the module focus, identification of improvement opportunities, and examples of QI projects. In Session 4, course participants present QI projects of their own design ( Table ). To date, 1316 clinical and administrative leaders have completed the ABC Baylor course, becoming QI champions and leading projects in their own environments.

    Other ABC Baylor programs are also offered:

    • “ABC Fast Track,” a 1-day course aimed at frontline caregivers that provides training for participants to support quality initiatives introduced by change leaders
    • A half-day “Introduction to Quality Improvement” program, which focuses on practicing physicians and involves a physician group retreat
    • A version targeting residents in training in several BHCS residency programs, which consists of three half-day sessions held 6 weeks apart, augmented by coaching received from residency directors and including projects completed by participating residents
    • Shorter customized versions of the core course delivered for special settings, including nursing homes and home care

    The targeted audience for ABC Baylor includes both internal BHCS teams and external customers. Internal teams can be geographic (e.g., from a certain hospital), functional (e.g., financial officers from diverse BHCS entities), or clinical process-based interdisciplinary teams (e.g., the pneumonia team, the acute myocardial infarction team). External customers consist of health systems, hospitals, physician groups, and health maintenance organizations using any combination of services ranging from full best care operationalization to specific training programs. Modules can be detached from the ABC Baylor course and delivered independently for specific customers.

    ABC Baylor has grown rapidly since its implementation in 2001, partly because of accountability structures imposed by institutional goals cascaded down to all enterprise units. Rapid growth has also been stimulated by the BHCS pay-for-performance program, which links executive compensation to hospital and system success in achieving increased compliance with CMS core measures and has increased the sense of urgency for health care QI ( 35 ).

    Program success and dissemination to other health care settings

    ABC Baylor has been studied and implemented in a variety of settings and has spread its success to other organizations, especially small and rural hospitals. The core course was incorporated in a BHCS-led Agency for Healthcare Research–funded randomized controlled trial of health information technology and QI education on quality of care in 47 rural Texas hospitals ( 22 , 25 ). The study examined ways to translate CQI education to small rural hospitals.

    In 2006, BHCS entered into collaboration with Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University in Pennsylvania to conduct a QI demonstration project that provided training in rapid-cycle QI techniques to select Pennsylvania community hospitals. Participants successfully implemented a variety of QI projects, showing that CQI programs developed by large health care systems can be adapted and applied successfully in other settings, especially smaller rural and community hospitals that lack the necessary resources to establish such programs independently ( 27 ).

    Hazleton General Hospital was one of two rural area community hospitals selected to participate in Accelerating Best Care in Pennsylvania. Five projects were undertaken for the demonstration: provision of heart failure discharge instructions to eligible patients, surgical antibiotic prophylaxis, care of the stroke patient, administration of an antibiotic within 4 hours to pneumonia patients, and pneumococcal vaccine administration to eligible patients. From January 2007 to June 2008, compliance with these measures rose from 79% to 93% for provision of heart failure discharge instructions; 70% to 96% for timely antibiotic administration for emergency department patients with pneumonia; 85% to 92% for pneumococcal vaccination of inpatients who met the criteria; 13% to 100% for computed tomography scans within 20 minutes for stroke patients presenting to the emergency department; and 20% to 83% for prophylactic antibiotics given to patients within an hour of particular types of surgery ( 36 ). These improvements suggest that the principles taught in ABC Baylor can lead to improvements in health care quality in community hospitals ( 13 ).

    In addition, BHCS’s QI efforts, including ABC Baylor, have led to substantial recent recognition. BHCS was the 2008 recipient of the National Quality Foundation National Quality in Healthcare Award (which is awarded annually to a single health care organization to recognize the organization for its “proactive and exemplary response to the national call for QI and accountability”) and the 2007 recipient of the Leapfrog Patient-Centered Care Award (granted to the hospital or health system whose board has most successfully driven the creation of a true partnership between patients and their caregivers). BHCS also ranked third among 73 health care systems across the United States in performance on publicly reported clinical quality measures, including CMS core measures ( 37 ).

    One example of an ABC Baylor project that led to substantial QI is the reduction of prolonged intubation after cardiac surgery at one of BHCS’s hospitals, Baylor Medical Center at Irving. The Society of Thoracic Surgeons identifies prolonged intubation beyond 24 hours after surgery as a defect in health care ( 7 ). The interdisciplinary improvement team at Baylor Medical Center at Irving recognized the lack of an extubation protocol as a cause of this defect and developed a standard protocol. Results of the application of this protocol are shown in the Figure . Prolonged intubation has not occurred for the last several months.

    DISCUSSION

    BHCS has been widely successful in its improvement journey, reaching high reliability in the use of core measures ( 37 ) and winning several national awards. ABC Baylor training and consulting is only a part of the overall culture and infrastructure responsible for the successes of BHCS.

    The QI principles taught in ABC Baylor have been successfully disseminated to and implemented in a variety of settings, including academic teaching hospitals, community hospitals, and small rural hospitals. The program’s success in improving reliability across health care settings has been due to its use of examples that include clinical care; the simplicity of the material and its exclusion of advanced statistical concepts; and the modules that focus on health care safety, service, equity, and chronic disease management. Thus, the program is accessible to a variety of health care employees.

    As BHCS has successfully adopted useful dashboards addressing various clinical quality indicators, ABC Baylor serves as an essential set of tools targeting the improvement priorities identified by the dashboards. The culture of rapid-cycle QI facilitated by ABC Baylor serves to link BHCS’s vision and goals to practical execution.

    Why L.A. Needs a Resilience Czar

    Anticipating Everyday Environmental Threats Is Just as Important as Recovering from Natural Disaster


    by Darren Ruddell|

    For the first time in human history, the majority of the world’s population lives in urban settings. Urban living offers many attractions–employment opportunities, higher education, entertainment, healthcare, and public transportation. But the changes we make to the natural landscape to accommodate and support our current population often make us vulnerable to human and environmental threats. And when disasters strike urban areas, many lives are threatened and upended.

    For instance, think about how we have built practically right up to shorelines in the New York City area and how quickly Hurricane Sandy flooded streets and subway terminals in 2012. Consider the way Hurricane Katrina overwhelmed the levee systems and devastated New Orleans in 2005. The list of urban crises goes on: Fukushima, Japan (2011), the floods in Fort Lyons and Boulder, Colorado (2013), tornadoes in Moore, Oklahoma, and the deadly European (2003) and Chicago (1995) heat waves.

    For all its attractive features, Los Angeles, too, is vulnerable. L. A. is not only vulnerable to acute disasters like earthquakes and floods; we also experience chronic hazards like air pollution and high temperatures. After all, the city is in a three-year drought and is vulnerable to 13 of the 16 federally designated natural hazards. (The only three we don’t have to worry about: volcanic eruption, snowstorm, and tornado.)

    Strengthening our city is the motivation behind the recent announcement that Los Angeles will create the position of “chief resilience officer.” L.A. is one of the first 32 cities to create such a position, as part of a campaign backed by the Rockefeller Foundation . The goal of the program is to build urban resiliency around the world by pursuing collaborations across government, private, and nonprofit sectors to address complex human, environmental, and economic challenges.

    The city’s emergency management departments–the fire department equipped with search and rescue capabilities and a well-trained police force–respond to acute disasters. But L.A. also needs one person to lead a city-wide effort to make the important and thoughtful decisions that will increase resiliency while reducing vulnerability to human and environmental threats in the future.

    What does resilience mean in this context? The Worldwatch Institute, an environmental research organization, defines resilience as the ability of natural or human systems to survive in the face of great change. Resilient systems possess the ability to return to a state of equilibrium following a disturbance while non-resilient systems struggle to restore equilibrium or fail to recover altogether.

    Old-school emergency management focuses on a reactive strategy–recovering from a disaster such as an earthquake, flood, or fire. (We are seeing this approach in the response to water main break and flooding near UCLA.) But resiliency planning also adds a second approach, a proactive position: anticipating and protecting against threats to critical infrastructure prior to a disaster. Seismic retrofitting of buildings as well as earthquake drills fit into this category. Similarly, green spaces and vegetation help reduce the “ urban heat island effect ” found in cities. So would efforts to restore marsh habitat in Louisiana to absorb storm surge in a hurricane. Another way cities can increase their resiliency is by diversifying their energy sources; wind and solar are local energy resources that can and should be developed to provide power the local economy.

    To work on both these strategies, the job of the Los Angeles chief resilience officer (CRO) requires several different types of skills: the local knowledge to know what risks the city faces; the technical capacity to do the planning; and the ability to bring together very different kinds of people, from scientists to politicians to media and neighborhood leaders.

    By way of example, consider how the chief resilience officer might confront repeated heat waves in the city. Before the heat wave, the CRO would work to redesign our city to minimize exposure–adding trees and green spaces that have cooling effects (L.A. River restoration plans, especially removing the concrete, would have benefits here). Coordinating heat warnings with the National Weather Service also would be important. During the heat event, the city could provide cooling centers, water and aid stations, and health services to assist people in need. Post-heat wave, the CRO would work to return residents and the city to normal. Think how complex such work would be on this one subject. And then think about all the other threats Los Angeles faces.

    The benefits of such work would go far beyond preparation and response to disaster. Resilience planning can create jobs for those engaged in the work, add to knowledge and science as the city gathers and analyzes data on its vulnerabilities, and improve education (in part by involving scholars and other experts in the work). Incorporating technology and social media into these planning efforts could create easily available real-time, geo-referenced data regarding evacuation routes and hazards during a disaster. And once we learn lessons on effective resiliency planning, we can share them with others. The Dutch, for instance, are experts in land reclamation and levees, and they provided their expertise to New Orleans officials dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

    If the CRO is to succeed, people around Los Angeles will have to collaborate as never before, and many of us–at least in the academic sector–are eager to contribute to this work, and learn from it.

    In fact, students in my USC program on GeoDesign–a first-of-its-kind major that brings together architecture, planning, and spatial sciences–have already started investigating how resilience can be engineered. Younger students, from kindergarten to high school, can be engaged as well, through class projects and field trips.

    The appointment of a chief resilience officer to Los Angeles is a demonstration of global leadership. It’s also timely because, unlike New Orleans or New York, L.A. has not experienced a major disaster recently. L.A. can get a head start on investing in critical infrastructure and services before we encounter the disasters that we know are on their way.

    The Power of Resilience – Varsity Tutors Scholarship Essay

    The skill I believe is most important to college success is the ability to bounce back; resilience. Though it’s not a physical skill, it’s something that can be practiced and learned and improved, so, in my opinion, it can justifiably be considered a skill. College is full of challenges, and not all of them are easily conquered. A person’s resilience allows them to see these obstacles in a different light, recognize how that error could have been avoided, and use that insight to be more successful next time.

    Making mistakes, minor and massive, is all part of the learning experience! It’s important to realize that everyone messes up in one way or another all the time. Once in a while, there are even things that happen that were unavoidable, but we must deal with the consequences, like a death or traumatic event. However, it’s very important to not let those setbacks derail you. I know a lot of people who have met obstacles in their lives and let the feeling of failure completely take over. It affects not only your current mood, but also you actions and your future. Resilience is a necessity if you plan on conquering the roadblocks you’ll surely meet in college.

    In college, there are a million things that can happen in ways we hadn’t planned on. It could be that you slept through your morning classes on accident. Maybe you forgot to study for a test you have today and end up flunking it. Or, perhaps you wrote a paper in philosophy that you were sure was right on as far as what your professor was asking for, but you somehow received a low grade because your professor actually thought you were a little off the mark. Messing up or thinking you have things figured out and realizing that you don’t can be embarrassing, but if you look carefully, there are lessons to be learned. Missed a class? It’s not reason to feel stupid or ashamed and decide not to go; that’s going to backfire. Failing your exam will teach you that you need to find a method of studying that works better for you. If a professor didn’t like exactly what you had to say this time, you will have a better idea of what they’re looking for in your next paper. When students let themselves feel defeated by the challenges they face in college, it’s really easy for them to dig themselves into a hole that it’s extremely difficult to pull themselves out of. But, even if you’re looking up at the world from the bottom of the pit that you dug, that has not sealed your fate, and you are not doomed to failure. There may be some negative consequences involved, like taking a bad grade or falling behind a little. The experience isn’t a purely positive one, which is where a lot of students get stuck in the “failure” mindset. However, when one uses their resilience and triumphs over the obstacle instead of surrendering to it, they most definitely learn from that experience. Resilience allows us to see the positive aspects of our mistakes and to learn from them.

    Seeing the lessons to be learned leads us to the next step, which is applying that newfound knowledge. By making mistakes and not letting them deter you from trying again, we are able to make another, more educated attempt. When you accept defeat, you waste a valuable opportunity to move forward with more insight than you’d had before. One “oops” is not the end of the world! Learning by experience teaches us the most valuable lessons of our lives. How often are we ever going to use the quadratic equation, really? Learning how to handle difficulties and handle them in the ways you’ve seen as most effective is much more important; that applies to all aspects of life.

    Practicing and improving one’s resilience, I believe, is the most helpful thing you can do in order to be successful in college. It’s great to have good study habits, know how to write a paper, and be skilled in the art of Pulling an All-Nighter. However, no matter how awesome things can be, there are bound to be bumps in the road, and being able to handle those sets you up for success not only in college but in life as well.

    When Write My Paper for Me is a Valid Request

    So if you can see they follow 7 important steps while essay writing. In case you’d like to do it by yourself be careful and follow next laps:

    Trust us, there is not a student in the world who has never thought “I don’t want to do my paper.” The reasons can be numerous, and lack of knowledge, motivation, and/or discipline are not necessarily among them. Here are just some of the reasons why students should start googling ‘write my paper for me’:

    essay writer
    • Wanting to focus on major disciplines: With the ever-growing amounts of homework, it gets increasingly tough to have it all done yourself appropriately without losing your sleep and sanity. It makes perfect sense to focus on the disciplines that truly matter to your future career while letting a research paper writing service take care of the rest.
    • Lacking time for personal reasons: When you are a student, it doesn’t mean that you are nothing more than that. You are also your parents’ child, your grandparents’ grandchild, possibly even a spouse and a parent yourself. If – God forbid – some emergency occurs, it is naive to expect of anyone to sacrifice precious family time in favor of another college assignment. And such emergencies may happen regardless of how bright and zealous a student you may be. In such situations, term papers for sale are a real salvation.
    • Having a part-time job: If you are an extraordinary student, you probably receive some significant scholarship. Even so, however, it is rarely enough to cover your tuition, rent, and other expenses. If you don’t have a scholarship, then working part-time and earning your sustenance is even more vital for you. Unfortunately, even the best of grades will not pay your ongoing bills, so students often have to choose whether to spend those hours on homework or work. With custom term paper writing services, you don’t have to make this tough choice anymore.

    If even one of the reasons is your case, ordering custom written college papers is a perfect solution to the problem. Now, another valid question arises — how do you choose an essay writer service that will land you an A+? After all, if you pay someone to write my paper, you’d expect nothing less than that.

    It is easy to get lost in the sheer amount of websites that Google will show you if you search for something like “write my paper.” It is equally easy, however, to sort out the best essay writing service which you can trust with any assignment at any time. Here are a few features by which you can tell a reputable company which will be your helping hand throughout your whole studies from scammers who are only interested in your money:

    • The website should be easy to navigate. You can effortlessly find all the necessary information, contact customer service in case you haven’t, and order term paper online when you are ready to do so.
    • The contents of the website should be not only about bold claims and promises. Pay attention that there is a Terms and Conditions page, as well as descriptions of the company’s policies.
    • What they do if you want to make changes to your term paper while it is being written or after? Are there free revisions or refunds policies? What to do if you are unhappy with the outcome?

    Keeping their expenses at bay is yet another major concern for many students. Yet, when it comes to custom written college papers, it may seem that a cheap service will not give you the desired results, while a reputable service will charge extra. In reality, there are plenty of other factors involved. It often happens that an unreliable company will inflate its prices a bit to make itself seem more reputable. Meanwhile, a fair and trustworthy business will focus on optimizing its work to make its plagiarism free affordable papers accessible to a wider clientele.
    The good news is that students don’t necessarily need to overpay for an A+ research paper. Moreover, higher prices should raise suspicion (unless, of course, your paper is extraordinarily voluminous, complicated, or urgent).

    Paper Writer Service For Successful Students

    affordable papers for students

    Too many students have come across complicated assignments on a very tight deadline. As a result, you try to get your paper done on time, spend a lot of time and effort and get a C+ at best. This, of course, is highly disappointing, which is exactly why many students choose to contact paper writers for hire when they are forced to work on similar assignments again.

    When Write My Paper for Me is a Valid Request

    So if you can see they follow 7 important steps while essay writing. In case you’d like to do it by yourself be careful and follow next laps:

    Trust us, there is not a student in the world who has never thought “I don’t want to do my paper.” The reasons can be numerous, and lack of knowledge, motivation, and/or discipline are not necessarily among them. Here are just some of the reasons why students should start googling ‘write my paper for me’:

    essay writer
    • Wanting to focus on major disciplines: With the ever-growing amounts of homework, it gets increasingly tough to have it all done yourself appropriately without losing your sleep and sanity. It makes perfect sense to focus on the disciplines that truly matter to your future career while letting a research paper writing service take care of the rest.
    • Lacking time for personal reasons: When you are a student, it doesn’t mean that you are nothing more than that. You are also your parents’ child, your grandparents’ grandchild, possibly even a spouse and a parent yourself. If – God forbid – some emergency occurs, it is naive to expect of anyone to sacrifice precious family time in favor of another college assignment. And such emergencies may happen regardless of how bright and zealous a student you may be. In such situations, term papers for sale are a real salvation.
    • Having a part-time job: If you are an extraordinary student, you probably receive some significant scholarship. Even so, however, it is rarely enough to cover your tuition, rent, and other expenses. If you don’t have a scholarship, then working part-time and earning your sustenance is even more vital for you. Unfortunately, even the best of grades will not pay your ongoing bills, so students often have to choose whether to spend those hours on homework or work. With custom term paper writing services, you don’t have to make this tough choice anymore.

    If even one of the reasons is your case, ordering custom written college papers is a perfect solution to the problem. Now, another valid question arises — how do you choose an essay writer service that will land you an A+? After all, if you pay someone to write my paper, you’d expect nothing less than that.

    It is easy to get lost in the sheer amount of websites that Google will show you if you search for something like “write my paper.” It is equally easy, however, to sort out the best essay writing service which you can trust with any assignment at any time. Here are a few features by which you can tell a reputable company which will be your helping hand throughout your whole studies from scammers who are only interested in your money:

    • The website should be easy to navigate. You can effortlessly find all the necessary information, contact customer service in case you haven’t, and order term paper online when you are ready to do so.
    • The contents of the website should be not only about bold claims and promises. Pay attention that there is a Terms and Conditions page, as well as descriptions of the company’s policies.
    • What they do if you want to make changes to your term paper while it is being written or after? Are there free revisions or refunds policies? What to do if you are unhappy with the outcome?
    • What guarantees do they give? You should be able to find all this information on the website.
    • There should be reviews and testimonials from actual customers both on the website and on niche forums. People are more eager to share their positive (and negative) experiences than one might think. It is reasonable to see what others have to say about a particular company.
