Heart pounding, heavy breathing, and pale skin are all triggered by what is known as fear. But what is fear, really? Is it simply just being afraid? Are there things that should be feared? Can a person control fear? These questions can be thought-provoking at best but they all lead to the same answer. Fear is what overcomes the mind when a person is put into a situation they don't know how to handle. Fear can be expressed in many ways, such as crying, screaming, sweating, silence, running, hiding, and much more. Fear is like that moment of not knowing what is going to happen. Certain situations call for different actions. For example, a young woman is sitting at home watching tv when all of a sudden the back door crashes open. The woman runs upstairs and locks herself in the bathroom. The woman does not know if someone broke in or not. The fear of someone breaking in took over and she ran. Fear can make someone go from being calm to being petrified. From being strong to being weak. Even though some people don't seem to be effected by fear on the outside, their mind is overwhelmed with terrifying thoughts. While many people do not want to show fear, it is those people who fear the most. The fear of society judging them for being themselves. It is in no way a bad thing to be afraid. Showing fear is not a horrible thing, depending on the situation. For example, a dad and his son are on a camping trip. During the middle of the night, a bear comes into the camp while the father and son are sleeping in their tent. The dad wakes up and notices the bear. The dad may be afraid of bears, but should he scream and crawl into his sleeping bag? I think not. He must put his fear aside and show his son he Simbro 2
has no fear for this bear.
While trying to hide ones fear can be a challenge, dealing with it can be much harder. Expressing fear may seem cowardly to some, but it is also a way for someone to cope with their fear. For example,...

For business to thrive in today’s business world, the three terms, that is, innovation, creativity, and design are quite important. That is why the three are commonly used in the business sector. Indeed, businesses or organization are there to solve both existing and emerging customer problems. Therefore, it is important for every business and individual running a business to develop new solutions and resources for the business growth in the quest to solve the emerging problems. This is the reason why the terms innovation, design, and creativity are frequently use while conducting business. They have unique roles, and this helps in solving the unique problems. It is important therefore to understand the meaning of the three terms well in order to compare and contrast them.
The three terms have different meanings, which vary from one person to another. They are at times thought to be used interchangeably, but the truth is that the three disciplines have quite significant boundaries (Marshall, 2013). To understand them well therefore, there is need for an integrated approach to establish the fundamental differences therein. It is important to note that the three processes have different risks, starting points, environments, and consequences involved...
...perfect example of positive loyalty for mission accomplishment. In the military, you’re on the job every day when you are deployed. You need to stay committed in order to be able to accomplish any mission to the best of your ability. Recruits will get a small taste of this during the confidence course at basic training. Although its not in a life or death situation, they will be able to see how being loyal to one another can assist on completing small missions faster.
Unfortunately, loyalty is not always such a positive force. Often, people act loyally out of fear or insecurity, instead of care which causes us to harm others, instead of helping them. Throughout the military, there have been many examples of people who have been loyal to other countries or leaders simply out of fear or for money. A very good example is the case of MAJ Hasan. In an article for Killen Daily Herald “Hasan's crime fits treason definition” it states, “On June 4, 2013, Maj. Nidal Hasan stated in open court that he murdered 13 soldiers at Fort Hood in defense of the leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Taliban.” At the time of his murders, the United States had been at war with the Taliban for over eight years. He made an oath to the United States and he chose to be loyal to the enemy.
Sometimes, it is not entirely clear to the new recruits whether our loyalties are positive or negative, which is why it is important to remember...
...Where I come from fear isn’t a word you hear very often. When used to describe one’s self it is rarely used in conversation. Fear of you, fear of me, fear to be and fear to dream. These are the true feelings of my people or shall I say people dealing with reality. One may say “I ain’t never scared “, whatever those are the ones with the most freights. Franklin D. Roosevelt once said “The only thing we have tofear is fear itself—nameless unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”
As a psychology major I have always had a passion for the feelings of others. Why you may ask? Seeing the agony of a family strengths and weakness brought me to the realization that everyone has problems that are just solved differently. Fear of judgment, fear of isolation, fear of idolism just to name a few reasons why people don’t express their true feelings . Basically fear is an enabler that prevents success. Fear is a four letter word structured with so much power, enough power to incarcerate the heartless criminals, enough power to shut down the biggest movements, end the longest most depressing wars and make the most stubborn countries surrender.
Fear the sister of being afraid, freight and also scared so closely bonded can alternate positions in...
...FearFear is one of the most intense, overwhelming emotions a living organism can feel. Fear is like a disease embedded in the Earth that can strike at anytime. Everyone at some point and time has felt fear. They have felt the adrenaline pumping rapidly through their veins, while perspiration drains down their face as the mind runs wild trying to figure out the situation. Fear, also is one of the hardest emotions to overcome. The feeling of fear lingers within you for seconds, but it feels like months. As Winston Churchill once said, “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” This famous quote shows that fear affects people only as much as they let it affect them.
According to the Oxford Dictionary, fear is a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid. Fear essentially is inescapable. Especially as humans we fear many things: death, disease, commitment, pain, old age, responsibility, and even being too fat or too skinny. There are two ways with coping with our fears: we can avoid them or we can overcome them. Either way fear will always be around.
The word fear originated before the twelfth century from the word faer meaning danger,...

Their hair tightly pulled back. Their razorbacks, drenched in sweat. They all go up, but most crash right back down. Broken noses, bloody knees, concussions, sprained ankles, black and blues everywhere, and knots up and down their spines. Half of them have their wrists wrapped; cutting off circulation; to support the human that they are about to elevate ten feet high in the air. Girls gripping their own toes above their heads, and their feet next to their faces. It’s Cheerleading. A club? I tend to doubt cheerleading is a club, but that is what it has been considered for years. Competitive cheerleading at Northern Valley Old Tappan High School has been receiving the minimal credits that a ‘club’ offers. The credibility that athletes get for participating in a sport is much more respected and deserved than those of a club. Colleges see the amount of credits a varsity athlete gets, as well as an active club member. Though, a varsity athlete receives more credits. To be a Varsity athlete, you must participate in a sport. That I do, yet I receive the amount of credits as a club member would. So, Mr. Kachele, I’d like to offer you a definition of a sport because you must be misinformed as to what a sport constitutes.
A sport is a psychical activity that requires talent, physical agility, dedication, time, a team and/or a coach. It also is governed by a set of rules, requires...

Emotional intelligence (E.I)
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to manage and understand emotions and feelings. This capacity involves to being aware of control, and to express one’s emotions, as well as perceive, interpret and respond to other people’s feelings and emotions. Having a good Emotional Intelligence helps people to relate better to others, form healthier relationships, achieve greater success at work, manage the stress and emotions when facing problems, and it also helps to lead a more fulfilling life.
This term consists of four attributes. The first one is the ‘self-awareness’, which involves recognizing one's own emotions, strengths and weaknesses, and realizing how thoughts and behaviors are affected by emotions. It is wrong to think of emotions as either positive or negative but rather as appropriate or inappropriate. Anger is usually associated with being a negative emotion, for example. However, anger can be a completely reasonable and appropriate emotion in certain circumstances, as when someone is using the computer to writing a paper, the electricity goes out, and then when it returns, he/she realizes that all work was lost.
People who lack self-awareness think that living a truly happy and productive life is difficult. They stay in jobs that they find...

Economics is used in almost all aspects of life. It is about choice and decision making. An understanding of economics will illustrate how to live and exist in our world today and understand how the business world functions. As the concept of economics is discussed, many terms are used to describe how economics works in the real world. These terms will be defined so that they will be understood throughout the discussion of the economy and market demand.
To help understand the concept of economics, terms are defined and used to describe the economy and market demand. The terms Gross Domestic Product (GDP), Real Gross Domestic Product, Unemployment Rate, Inflation Rate, and Interest Rate, help to break down the analysis of economics and give a better understanding of the direction our economy is headed. This area of study gives further consideration to other concepts, like a circular flow diagram that illustrates the interaction of households, government, and business.
Gross Domestic Product
Gross Domestic Product, or GDP, is a tool which helps measure the economic health and strength of a country. It is one way to measure the size of an economy via the total market value of all final...
In the Chicago Tribune, February 18 it states “In 1968, Chicago became a symbol of police brutality as overzealous police officers attacked protesters outside the Democratic National Convention while a national television audience watched” (“Shielded from Justice: Police Brutality and Accountability in the United States”). Accounts of Police Brutality have been increasing within the years. As this happens more and more often, people begin to see this as a problem that is needed to be dealt with quickly.
To begin with, Police Brutality has been an increasing problem in the United States since 1893 when the first incident where a civilian was beaten by police officer in New York (“http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_brutality”). Accounts of Police Brutality have been increasing throughout the years. Some skeptics say that is because the officers abuse their power and use of unnecessary use of excessive force. As an example, in Hurst, Texas a kid by the name of Andrew Rodriguez was on his phone trying to contact his mother when one of the two police claims that he was trying to resist arrest. The police officer calls for back up after Rodriguez complains that he could not breathe, everything looks like...
