Wondering just what the heck test optional, test flexible, or test required means in the college admissions process? Check out the video above for the definitions and more on exactly what it means for your college applications. The Test Optional Movement Recently, George Washington University announced that it will no longer require applicants to submit SAT or ACT scores (that is, unless you are a pre-med hopeful, home-schooled student, or athlete). This was big news, not because GWU is the first university to adopt a test optional approachin fact, more than 800 schools have test optional or test flexible policies*but because GWU is one of the largest and most influential universities to do so. As more competitive, well-respected institutions relax their standardized test policies, does this mean the end is near for the SAT and ACT? Well..the short answer is Ã¢â¬Å"No.Ã¢â¬ And weÃ¢â¬â¢re not just saying this because we are in the business of test prep. In fact, we education-lovers at Magoosh are big fans of helping students achieve their dreams, whether this means taking a test or not. And it is certainly true that for many students, no matter how hard they try or how much help they have, SAT and ACT scores do not always align with academic success, and we would never want this to hold anyone back! So weÃ¢â¬â¢re happy to see more schools giving students alternative avenues to admissions. But hereÃ¢â¬â¢s why the SAT and ACT arenÃ¢â¬â¢t going away anytime soon, and why you probably still want to prepare for them even with more schools jumping on the test optional bandwagon. Not All Students Qualify for Test Optional Admissions Many colleges and universities that advertise themselves as test optional have some fine print. They may be test optional only if you have a certain GPA. They may still require SAT or ACT scores from home-schooled students or recruited athletes. If you are applying to a competitive program within the university, such as a 7- or 8-year accelerated pre-med/med program, your test scores may still be required. Some schools will allow you to bypass the SAT or ACT only if you can submit a battery of AP, IB, or SAT subject test scores. The message behind these caveats is that colleges and universities still feel that test scores provide them with valuable data on a student, particularly when they think need more information than what a transcript might tell them. The Majority of Students Still Submit SAT or ACT Scores Standardized tests are deeply ingrained in the psyches of college applicants. The number of students taking the SAT or ACT (or both) has risen year after year. Even when test scores are optional, many students send them anyway. This doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t necessarily mean they should. It just means that they are. This can make it tricky to decide whether or not your test scores are going to support your application or weaken it. And it often means that for some of the schools you are applying to, test scores might weaken your app, and for some of the schools you are applying to, they might help it. So itÃ¢â¬â¢s nice to have a test score in your back pocket so you can make the choice. Most Large State Schools Require the SAT or ACT The major reason why standardized test scores are so appealing to colleges is because they provide a metric to compare students who come from very different schools and backgrounds. And when your university receives tens of thousands of applications a year, test scores are a quick and easy way to make cuts. UCLA, for example, receives over 60,000 applications a year. The University of Michigan and Penn State each receive over 45,000 applications a year. With such overwhelming numbers of would-be students knocking down their doors, large schools are helplessly reliant on SAT or ACT scores. Ultra-Competitive Schools All Require the SAT or ACT Perfect or near-perfect SAT or ACT scores carry with them a certain mystique that is not going to go away anytime soon. And average test scores of admitted students are a key part of the all-important U.S. News and World Report college rankings. The currently highest ranked test optional national university is Wake Forest (sitting at #27 in 2015). So if you are targeting the most competitive schools, test scores are going to remain a crucial part of your application. Fair or Not, Standardized Tests are Worth the Prep For some students, standardized tests are indeed an unfair portrayal of their strengths, and, for these applicants, test optional colleges and universities can be very attractive options for a college list. In fact, they may make up the majority of a list. But as the situation stands now, it is a rare student who will be able to avoid standardized tests entirely and still keep his or her options open, so preparing for the SAT or ACT is still a very smart move. *Check out a full list of test optional and test flexible colleges and universities at FairTest.

A major component of any workplace violence program is prevention. Program development and union involvement, are important parts of a workplace violence prevention program in government. There are specific measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of violent behavior. The first question many people ask when starting to develop a workplace violence prevention program is, how can we identify potentially violent individuals? It is understandable that people want to know this -- and that early warning signs and profiles of potentially violent employees are in much of the literature on the subject of workplace violence. It would save time and solve problems if managers could figure out ahead of time what behaviors and personalityÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦The same approaches that create a healthy, productive workplace can also help prevent potentially violent situations. It is important that supervisory training include basic leadership skills such as setting clear standards, addressing employee problems promptly, and using the probationary period, performance counseling, discipline, and other management tools conscientiously. These interventions can keep difficult situations from turning into major problems. Supervisors dont need to be experts on violent behavior; what is needed is a willingness to seek advice from the experts. Pre-employment screening is an important part of workplace violence prevention. Prior to hiring an employee, the agency should check with its servicing personnel office and legal office, if necessary, to determine what pre-employment screening techniques (such as interview questions, background and reference checks, and drug testing) are appropriate for the position under consideration and are consistent with Federal laws and regulations. Maintaining a physically safe work place is part of any good prevention program. Agency facilities use a variety of security measures to help ensure safety.

Alienation in Tennessee Williams, The Glass Menagerie Life is a lonely tale of alienation, as Tennessee Williams conveys though his play, Ã¢â¬Å"The Glass Menagerie.Ã¢â¬ Williams surrounds Laura in isolation from a world in which they wish to belong to by using various symbols. The symbolic nature of the motifs hidden within the lines of this play provides meaning to the theme found consistent throughout the play: Individuals are all alone in the world. Williams brilliantly illuminates the idea of isolation through the symbolic use of glass. The symbolism of the glass is directly connected with the character of Laura. Similar to glass Laura is extremely fragile, her soul and image faces the possibility of being easily damaged andÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦The candlelight seems to Ã¢â¬Å"light her inwardlyÃ¢â¬ (Williams 1846) and symbolically shadows her disability, as Williams vividly describes in a side note of the play. The scene thereafter illuminates how a unicorn is tragically different from all other animals in LauraÃ¢â¬â¢s collection. At the Paradise Dance Hall al glass sphere slowly turned from the ceiling in a different delicate rainbow of colors suggesting a joyful moment. This symbolized another beautiful moment as Laura and Jim dance together, uniting two separate flames to create many colors of the rainbow. LauraÃ¢â¬â¢s physical problems provide more alienation to her character and greater meaning to the central theme that individuals are all alone in the world. LauraÃ¢â¬â¢s handicap is the greatest characteristic of her loneliness. Ã¢â¬Å"I had a brace on my legÃ¢â¬âit clumped so loud!Ã¢â¬ Laura blames her slowness upon her brace and is self conscious about how loud it is. Yet Jim claims, Ã¢â¬Å"I never heard any clumpingÃ¢â¬ (Williams 1846). Laura was the only person who realized and continues to recognize her handicap. It causes her to stand out from the others, surrounding her. She finds it to be completely alienating, which separates her from the rest of the world. Jim interprets LauraÃ¢â¬â¢s handicap as something beautiful. He finds her character unique and attractive. She is different and far from normal.

Over the past fifty or so years great strides have been made on the subject of Mexican-American civil rights, but the first pivotal moment for these civil rights barely gets any recognition in the annals of American civil rights, in which it rightly deserves. This victory, which has been labeled Ã¢â¬Å"The Longoria AffairÃ¢â¬ , would cause a momentum within Latino civil rights movement that was previously unseen and would lead the way for political opportunities for Latinos. Felix Longoria is a name that should be recognizable to the general public, but sadly is not. This young father and husband answered the call of duty in November of 1944 and after basic training was immediately shipped off to fight in the Philippines. Serving as an infantryman he volunteered to join a patrol that was to weed out and exterminate enemy snipers. On June, 16th, 1945 he would give the ultimate sacrifice for his nation while on this particular patrol. According to the reports that his family received, the war department found that the cause of death occurred when a mortar was fired towards him and half of his body was eviscerated. Since the war effort was still ongoing it would be three years before his body would be able to come home to Three Rivers, Texas for a proper burial. In November 1948 Beatrice, the widow of Felix Longoria, got word from the army that his remains would be returning stateside through San Francisco.

Organizational structure can be defined as the establishment of authority and responsibilities between different positions in the company. It can be either horizontal or vertical. Organization structure also facilitates transparency in the organization (Luthans, 1998). My organization is Saint JosephÃ¢â¬â¢s Hospital, which is a leading magnet facility here in Atlanta Georgia.

During this project I discovered that the organizational chart at my facility has undergone significant change. We no longer have the traditional organizational chart which is best illustrated by the shape of a pyramid with board of trustees on top, CEO, CFO, COO then upper management, followed by middle management, then front line people and at the bottom with the largest area, the customers. It shows that top management has the power over those situated below it. Now we have a modern customer-oriented organizational chart, that is an inverted pyramid where the customers are on top occupying the largest area followed by the front line people, middle management and at the bottom, the top management with the smallest area. There are arrows pointing upwards showing tha t customers are now the primary focus of the organization hence, it is customer-oriented.

The first of these qualities is having an enormous number of programs to choose from. I have already decided to major in computer science, but I am in doubt if this is the right choice. I want to experience a bit of everything to be absolutely sure about the path I chose to follow. I can chose from anything that interests me, from marketing to psychology. This can be accomplished only if the college that I attend has a wide range of studies. At Northeastern, I can take multiple majors in computer sciences, business, and architecture. Along with the Co-op program, I can be better prepared for the career I am about to enter. The second quality is having diversity among the student body. Being able to travel the around the world is a life long dream of mine. By attending a school with a diverse community will be the first steps to achieving this goal. I could also have a chance to study abroad, which would allow me to experience the entirety of a culture. This alone draws me to this school. Northeastern, having all the traits described above, is the school I feel suits me the best.
