In addition to sheer unfairness of the draft there were other problems associated with the system such as the bias that was seen within the local draft boards. During the Vietnam war there were over 4,050 local draft boards that consisted of privileged white men who were responsible for the selection and the deferment process of men who had been called to military service. Members of the boards were appointed by the president and they served a term of five years without being paid. Although the process of selecting men for the draft boards was highly official, when good volunteers were appointed and finished their term they were often persuaded by the Selective Service headquarters to remain on the board. Therefor many men who were on the boards were older and bias. For example: a local draft board in Ausbury New Jersey had a hard time
The Founders Club is one of Florida’s pre-eminent country club and golf communities. The Founders Club offers over 700 meticulously landscaped acres with 262 homes featuring golf, lake, or preserve views.

The Kiwanis Hi-Liters is a group of eighteen or so young performers between 7 and 18 who travelled to local convalescent homes and nursing homes each week from September to May in an effort to bring some joy to the elderly. Throughout these two-hour shows, there were performances from singers, musicians, clowns, and magicians. When I first started as the backstage manager my role was to ensure the audio technicians had the proper music for each performance prior to the start of the show, organizing the performers before their numbers and relaying pertinent information to the directors regarding any changes that needed to be made to the line-up because of unforeseen complications whether that was the performer was no longer available to do their
Working for the one of the largest and most lucrative companies on the face of the planet can be difficult at times. More often than not every time you walk in to a Walmart you will not recognize anyone in there. Screaming red faced babies that can’t have what they want and befuddled customers asking questions that I don’t know the answer to are an everyday occurrence. Just like in any business the primary goal is to make a profit so as associates our job is to help customers in the most efficient way possible. Picking up after careless customers that move around the products from shelf to shelf. Running freight of our hottest commodities off a truck that worked its way across the country in a matter of hours. Darting around the sales floor as swiftly as possible to fulfill customers’ needs to ensure that they come back. These are just a few of the stand out things that make hard working associates so valuable to Walmart. There are so many unsung heroes that customers take for granted each time they step in to a local Walmart.
They are always giving back to the community. Just this Christmas Miejers had a thing where kids could apply to get a gift card to buy gifts for their family. There were only twenty $100 gift cards, but forty kids showed up. So they said which twenty kids are they going to give the cards to but Miejers said were going to give all forty kids gift cards. See stores are always doing things like that. They also are doing discounts like that too. They help our community so much and in very helpful ways. They also do at lot of fundraisers to help needy kids too.
Imagine living in a world where the air is polluted and most people are afraid to step outside their front door, in the near future, this may be reality for Americans. Americans throw out over 200 million tons of garbage a year, yet recycle not nearly as much. Most people do not realize it but recycling is a vital part of America’s society and if Americans do not perform this action, it will backfire on them. People in America are debating whether Americans are recycling enough and correctly. After analyzing the data, one will definitely agree that Americans need to be more educated on recycling due to the fact that most people do not know what happens after they recycle an item, nearly all Americans are recycling incorrectly, and Am
It has come to my attention that the recent cuts to the funding of public education has led to majority of our staff trying to selling chocolates, Magazine or Garbage bags for their children’s school fundraising but this has unfortunately led to serious complaints as customers and other stakeholders feel that they are not getting full attention from our employees.
Most ninth graders do not want to draw attention to themselves at school. This is why I even surprised myself that my freshman year I ran for treasurer of Key Club. Being Treasurer would not only mean that I was in charge of the money, but also that I would have to stand in front of an auditorium full of students and talk to them about upcoming events and dates. Just a few years earlier, I never would have had the courage to do this. I have come so far from who I used to be and it is all because of performing. Singing has been my passion ever since I was a little kid. However, when I was younger, I was always shy and never wanted to let anyone hear me sing. After school, I would spend countless hours in my bedroom belting “Part of Your World” to my stuffed animals, but I refused to let anyone, even just my parents, hear my performance. After overhearing me singing, my mom encouraged me to get involved in musical theater. Just the thought of getting up in front of anyone terrified me. Nevertheless, with my mother 's persuasion, I decided to give it a try and enroll in a local singing and acting group.
Almost every american child has once tried ballet, soccer, karate, cooking, or something of that sort. In the beginning of our lives we try to find, or our parents try to find for us, a hobby, or a passion that we may take up for the rest of our lives, for me this passion was the girl scouts. As a young child I did not quite understand what the girl scouts were, I consumed my time searching for bugs, playing outside, and participating in other activities that any other spirited six year old would do. When my mother first told me she signed me up for the girl scouts, I can assume I wasn't all that elated. I believe, at that time I already had a preconceived notion to what the girl scouts encompassed, sitting inside, doing arts and crafts,
On Tuesday, October 27th, I volunteered at YWCA’s Secret Seconds Thrift Shop. The YWCA of Missoula is an organization that provides many services to women and their families in Missoula. Their mission, eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all, is addressed through domestic and sexual violence programs, leadership programs, racial justice initiatives, and housing and rental assistance. The Secret Seconds Thrift Shop is a source of revenue for the YWCA, and one hundred percent of the proceeds go towards these programs that address their mission.
The Blended Family Getaway Camp will be a two-day weekend getaway for newly formed families. Camp and family counselors at the event are going to be very important. Their time is going to be very essential for these families that will be attending. They are going to need to be very patient and understanding in order to help these families cope and feel comfortable. Also, the families attending are going to need to be able to be dedicated to this and give their best attention, time, and respect to others at the camp as well. Both the time from the counselors and support systems as well as the stepfamilies are going to be needed in order to make this camp work and be a positive outcome. Without the right amount of participation
According to the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) “Commercial item” means any item, other than real property, customarily used by the general public or by non-governmental entities for purposes other than governmental purposes, and has been sold, leased, or licensed to the general public, or has been offered for sale, lease, or license to the general public.

Rizzo’s Malabar Inn is a family-owned restaurant located in Crabtree, Pennsylvania. The restaurant is owned by the DeFabo family who continually pride themselves on providing authentic italian cuisine to their undeniably loyal customers. I started working at Rizzo’s in the summer of 2016. I primarily work as a take-out waitress, but have also been cross-trained as a hostess, busser and carry-out employee. I plan to continue working at Rizzo’s until I graduate college and receive new employment pertaining to my degree. I believe it is a wonderful place to work and they truly appreciate their dedicated customers. In the past two years that I have worked at Rizzo’s, I have been witness to many proactive changes made by management. Based on my
Equally important, recycling creates a profit by selling recycled products to nations across the world. Recycling the abandoned materials means that they have to be sold as well. The Environmental and Energy study institute, a nonprofit organization in Washington DC states, “How Better Recycling Can Minimize Waste and Boost the Economy” by Ellen Vaughan, “In 2010, the U.S. recycling industry sold 44 million metric tons of recycled materials valued at almost $30 billion to over 154 countries around the world…” (Vaughan). This shows that the United states is receiving a profit by selling materials that people have already used and are being used again by other people in other nations. These nations will pay the United States and do what these
Knowledge of design basics is the key to the successful planning and implementation of any interior design project. The elements and principles of design would create general and universal ideas which apply to every aspect of design. Once designers understand how people perceive and react to their environments, they can use the elements and principles of design to form a whole composition.
