Hijab When you change your appearance, you change the way that society looks at you. From hair-cuts, to wardrobe changes to the addition of glasses, society judges you and sometimes it’s not for the better. In middle school, I was peer pressured into wearing the hijab, a piece of clothing that in Islam shows how devout you are to your religion. Being the age that I was at that time, I didn’t fully understand the concept of the hijab, but over time it gave me the strength to defend me and my beliefs. Ramlah Khan. One of the best and worst decisions of my life. Ramlah Khan. The girl who peer pressured me into wearing hijab. Ramlah Khan. Who without her I wouldn’t have been able to understand me and my religion like I do today, and for that I am eternally grateful. She begged me to wear hijab so she wouldn’t be the only student in our middle school to wear one. At first I was hesitant and confided in my mother as of what to do. She advised me that at such a young age, I wouldn’t fully understand the concept of the hijab, or the duties it comes with. That was enough to make me content, and I went on with my life. The next year, that same girl came up to me, and again, just like last year begged for me to wear the head scarf like her. This time I submitted to her pitiful pleading and I agreed, I went to school the next day wearing the hijab. I gathered attention from everywhere. Students would gape, and laugh in the hallway, snickering behind me as they would whisper jokes about bombs and terrorists and eventually I yielded to their bullying and constant teasing. Ramlah unlike me had had years with people like this, and knew how to deal with their ignorance, unlucky for me, she decided not to share that information and left me to deal with the mess I made. In Islam, it is mandatory for a Muslim to pray five times a day, especially a hijabi (one who where’s hijab) who publically declares her devotion to Islam. I on the other hand didn’t, Islam still hadn’t taken effect on me like it had done to millions of other Muslims around the world. I was frustrated and depressed, and the only way I thought of coping was to act, dress, and behave like a typical American girl. I wanted to be (what my middle school year old self thought to be) normal. A hijabi’s demeanor should…
Anthropomorphism: Does your Dog Like You?
If you have to ask that question, the answer is: Probably not. LOL!
Most of us have had several dogs cross our paths. Based on experience we usually know how a relationship with any particular dog is going to turn out. This of course is not because of any “special” communication skills one may possess; it is simply from the familiarity of circumstances in having dogs throughout your life. Is this knowledge from dealing with dogs, or knowledge from dealing…

Your line manager has asked you what you think the accounting department’s role is in relation to the organisation.
(P1) What is the main purpose of accounting within a business?
In a very general way we can say that accounting is the language of business.
The main purpose is to keep a record, a very organized record of “the numbers” (every financial…
How much are you willing to pay for your freedom?
According to the National Center for injury and violence prevention and control, “Every single day in the US, 13 young people between the age of 10 and 24 are victims of homicide, more than 80% are killed with a firearm” (Hoye). People think weapons are more likely to have positive effect than a negative one. That is completely false, guns are more likely to bring negative effects such as young teenage violence, shootings, killing of innocent people…

When you got your paper back with a grade of F for plagiarism, you reacted in predictable fashion -- with indignant denial of any wrongdoing. You claimed “you cited everything” and denied that you had committed intentional plagiarism, or ever would.
This response is all too familiar to an experienced professor. Only once in my three decades of teaching has a student I caught plagiarizing owned up to it right away. And in that case, I believe (perhaps cynically) that she (a graduate student) thought…
Can you say what your strategy is?
by David Collis and M. Rukstad (2008)
Just about every one of Edward Jones’ employees could express the company’s succinct strategy statement: Jones aims to
“Grow to 17,000 financial advisers by 2012 [from about 10,000 today] by offering trusted and convenient face-to-face financial advice to conservative individual investors who delegate their financial decisions, through a national network of one-financial-adviser offices”.

the students think. If the tutor decides to do it this way it can be seen as “patronising:" (Atherton J S 2013) and for the tutor to be affective and help the students to learn they “need to get the class with you, agreeing their responsibility’s, rather than demanding compliance with your requirements” (Atherton J S 2013).
A second way to create the guidelines is for the tutor to list the ones they commonly use, and then ask for additional guidelines from the students. When someone proposes a…
In the world you can control your destiny, but not your fate. Like a road your destiny has many opportunities that you can turn right or left to, but with fate there’s a one-way street. We all have the choice as to whether we fulfill our destiny. In the play “The tragedy of Julius Caesar” by William Shakespeare there is two forces at work fate and free will. Fate was shown in the many prophecies and omens that the characters viewed throughout the entire play. Free will is the free and independent…
