In addition, this to me is a cultural change the barbeque business went south for the winter. Then they adapted or made changes to their business so it will survive the economy and with stand to the end of time. This was a great move to keep their business booming and their customers returning as well.

Part 1: Diversity Self-Knowledge
I define diversity as what makes a person different and unique from others. The differences range from a person’s religious affiliation to their race and culture. Foster (2006) suggests that people tend to feel the need to categorize things, and to label everything with a name. Foster (2006) goes on to say that labeling things and people comes with many negative consequences. I feel the reason we, as a society, feel the need to categorize people is because we want to set an order to the world around us. By doing this, it allows us understand how and why certain people act and respond to different situations. The unfortunate part is that this type of reasoning does not allow for us to take into an account for a person’s uniqueness as an individual.
I do believe I am a unique and diverse person. I am an English speaking Caucasian male with a very gentle spirit. I am a patient person that is slow to speak and quick to listen. I have a high tolerance level, yet I do not accept excuses for low achievers. I am a Christian that loves the Lord with all my heart and know that I am making a difference here on Earth. I am a task oriented person and am project driven. I am a quick learner and am not afraid to jump into a task head first. I am an outdoorsman that enjoys hunting and fishing with my family,...

2 Argument as Inquiry: Reading and Exploring 24
Describe human services from the early 1900s to the present day.
Throughout History Human Services made a big impact and a difference in our society as we know it today. Through the sociological era in the 1900's many were faced with challenges such as financial support for the poor and no support or guidance for the children, developmentally disabled and the mentally ill. Human Services make positive and lasting differences in peoples' lives, and they help improve the world.
The early 1900's, sometimes called the sociological era, continued the period of social reform. During this time there were two significant events that affected the history of helping and human services. The first was the development of a new profession known as social workers. During this time social diagnosis and casework evolved. The development of social work profession was significant and represented the beginning of human services.
Clifford Beers, a victim of mental illness was confined for three years in public and private mental institutions. Beers wrote about his treatment in A Mind That Found Itself (1945). In 1908, Beers founded the Connecticut Society for Mental Hygiene. This was considered to be the beginning to the mental health movement in America. In 1909 Beers proposed a national society, the National Committee for Mental Hygiene. By the end of World War II the profession of clinical psychology was...
...The Impact of Diversity on Human Resources
Entering the new millennium, businesses throughout America faced a new challenge. Analysts believed that this new challenge would have a powerful impact on our future as a productive society. However, few American businesses seemed adequately prepared to deal with the new challenge-the increasing cultural diversity of the American workforce (Online.Diversity).
Today, the challenges and potential opportunities posed by employee diversity in the American workplace are a growing reality. Since 1970, the number of women in the labor force has doubled. In 1990, they constituted 46% of the workforce. In 1985, people of color made up 13% and by 1988 that percentage had risen to 18%. During the next decade, women and people of color are expected to fill 75% of the twenty plus million jobs created in the United States. By the year 2010, white men will account for less than 40% of the total American labor force. In addition, diversity in age, ethnic heritage, physical ability, religious belief, sexual orientation and work and educational background are also increasing in the workplace as American society continues to become more culturally segmented (Loden, Rosner 3).
In Workforce America, Loden and Rosner describes the reaction of a new hire for upper management (who has been out of the workforce for a few years) at a consumer products company when he enters a...
...Readings # 2 Conrad Kottak (2000). Anthropology: the exploration of humandiversity
It is the coverage of physical anthropology and archaeology, which serves to make Kottak one of the most balanced introductions to the four fields of anthropology. This text offers an introduction to the five subdisciplines of anthropology: cultural, physical, archaeological, anthropological linguistics and applied anthropology. To reflect the role of anthropology in today's world, Professor Kottak has revised both the content and the organization of the text in a way which gives the students a balanced introduction to anthropology and its relevance. The special theme of this edition is "Preserving Cultural Diversity in the Face of Globalization". Two new chapters - "Ethnicity and Ethnic Relations" and "Cultural Exchange and Survival" - explore the significance of the demise of the Soviet Union and world-wide ethnic conflicts, as well as multiculturalism in the US and Canada, and cultural survival globally. "In-the-news" boxes describe recent discoveries on relevant topics that are attracting public attention. Kottak emphasizes why anthropology should matter to students and how students can use anthropology to better understand themselves. "Bringing It All Together" essays found on the online learning center demonstrate the integrated and comparative nature of anthropology. New "Through the Eyes of Others" essays offer the perspectives of...
...CODES OF ETHICS IN COUNSELING AND HUMAN SERVICES
According to Neukrug (2000), codes of ethics are a fairly recent development in the mental health professions. He states that the APA formulated its first set of ethical standards in 1953; the ACA in 1961; and the NASW in 1960. Within this relatively short period of time, these ethical codes have undergone a number of revisions. This is due to the fact that they reflect ever changing societal and professional values. Those charged with the formulation of such codes struggle with how these issues should be dealt with. These guidelines, however, do serve a number of purposes that have remained constant. Neukrug (2000, pp. 48-49) delineated the general purposes of codes of ethics as highlighted in a number of works (see Ansell, 1984; Corey et al., 1998; Lowewenberg & Dolgoff, 1996; Mabe & Rollin, 1986; VanZandt, 1990). He goes on to point out that "ethical guidelines are moral, not legal, documents, and our professional associations expect us to be bound by them (p. 49).
Purposes of Codes of Ethics
1. They protect consumers and further the professional stance of the organizations.
2. They denote the fact that a particular profession has a body of knowledge and skills that it can proclaim and that a set of standards can be established that reflect this knowledge.
3. They are a vehicle for professional identity and provide an indication of the maturity of a profession.
4. They profess a belief that...
...In today’s world, diversity is a common thing, and people of different religions can be found living in the same communities. Religion is one of the most controversial issues which is a big problem to some religious groups. One example of it is those people who criticize others based on their clothing and beliefs. They should allow other citizens to conduct their prayers and religious services in public because firstly, we have our own freedom of religion and secondly, we have different customs, beliefs and race that should be accepted and respected.
They should allow other citizens to conduct their prayers and religious services in public because we have our own freedom of religion. An example of this is Canada’s Multiculturalism Act which is an act created to respect diversity in the society in terms of religion, cultural differences and race. It supports the idea of letting people conduct their rituals or beliefs in public. The government created this law for equality in society which is a good idea for different kinds of religious groups to perform their religious services.
They should allow other citizens to conduct their prayers and religious services in public because today's society has become more welcoming towards diverse customs, beliefs and races that should be accepted and respected. They must bear in mind that each and every one of us has the privilege to choose on what religion we may belong .
In summary, religion plays a...
