Introduction: Nowadays Western New Yorkers are occupied trying to find a solution to an important problem that has “unexpectedly” knocked them out and they are quickly running out of time. The truth is that there has been found of huge gap in the Erie County’s budget. The truth is that now everyone is blaming the shortage on anything they can think of, but the solution is not being approached by such behavior. The 2005 budget shortage in the amount of 130 million dollars is a hard hit. Local legislators are trying to try to persuade the masses that the only way to restore the loss is by getting it from other budget components, and raising taxes. It is obvious that the inability to manage money that they showed, inability to come to a firm conclusion have influenced the lives of ordinary American people and its economy. The important issue that is being discussed now is the proposal to save budget founds by closing libraries, therefore cutting the expenses in the sphere of education.

This does not seem a suitable runout for any New York resident. The motivation of this decision presented by Joel Giambra and local legislators is connected with the necessity to revise cost of Medicaid and other gaps that need to be filled in. After this unprofessional work they performed how do they expect New Yorkers to believe that they will direct tax dollars right this time? And the other truth is that their professionalism is under a big question mark. Closing libraries means prevent people from self-development and the cultural development of the American nation as a whole. It is so easy every time having problems with the budget to say: “O.K. We do not have to think – we will just raise taxes”. For people that do not completely understand the importance of what is about to happen on January 1, 2005 we need to say that at the moment that the libraries close you will keeping…...

...that will allow them to get new releases earlier, or as early as their competitors. This will most likely mean extra expenses for the company. Their current strategy for obtaining new releases consists of a revenue sharing process that allows them access to new releases for a temporary period. They then have the option of paying extra to keep the titles, returning them back to the studio, or just destroying them. This usually resulted in million of dollars in losses annually. So, as part of their negotiating process, they could instead pay more initially to keep the rights to these newer movies, without having to worry about disposing of them afterwards. Even competitors such as Redbox have had problems with acquiring new releases at certain points. If Netflix were to mimic the same contracts that companies like Blockbuster used to use to acquire the newest movies, then they could draw in new customers. The next thing that the company should do, is to continue expanding their inventory of movies. Although Netflix prides itself on its library of movies and television series, there is always room for improvement. By continuing to expand their library, they can draw in customers from almost every age and ethnic group. One direction to go is to acquire more old movies. By bringing back movies that are decades old, they can draw in a somewhat older customer base. Classic movies will also appeal to a wide array of people. As much as customers like the latest movies, they all like......

Open Mind, Open Life

...What does it mean to be open-minded? What is considered being open-minded? Well to make it short being open-minded is witnessing or being a part of something that is outside of your comfort zone, it’s basically breaking the boundaries that you've set up yourself. Everyone has their own perspective, what they believe is right and wrong, and how they act upon themselves and others but hardly do they ever question themselves. Question whether they are happy with their life, if they happy with their values and beliefs, and if they are happy with how they view the world. Becoming an open-minded person is a bit more difficult than you think and tough at times because as a toddler we are raised upon beliefs and values of our household and family so we tend to surround ourselves with people who share the same values and beliefs. The challenge of becoming open-minded is the fact that we faced with ideas that differ from our own, and since we have strong views on specific topics it’s hard for someone to stray from those opinions. I strongly agree that believing in your own opinions is a great thing and doesn't mean you have a closed mind but I've noticed that opening the door to your mind and letting new ideas and beliefs in has it benefits. During my seventeen years of living I've noticed seven benefits to becoming open minded which has carved the person that I am today. Number One is letting go of control. By letting go of control of your thoughts you allow yourself to experience......

CORE VALUES R- ighteous, results-based and responsible governance M- oral courage, integrity and honesty T- ransparency, trust and respect for self and others U- nity in diversity and being one the community BRIEF HISTORY The Ramon Magsaysay Technological University, a merger of three public education institutions in the province of Zambales, was established by virtue of Republic Act 8498 enacted on February 12, 1998 through the initiative of Antonio M. Diaz. The University Charter integrated the former Ramon Magsaysay Polytechnic College (RMPC) in Iba, the Western Luzon Agricultural College (WLAC) in San Marcelino, an the Candelaria School of Fisheries (CSF), after a three-year transition period. The strengths of its parents-institutions, which had existed since the early 1990s served RMTU’s springboard for its accelerated growth and development. The RMPC in 1998, which is now RMTU’s main Campus, was found as a farm school in 1910. It was converted into a provincial trade in 1919. Through the years, it metamorphosed into Zambales Trade School on 1993., Western Luzon School of Arts and Trades in 1953, Zambales Scool of Arts and Trades in 1957, Ramon Magsaysay Memorial School of Arts and Trades in 1961. It became a DECS supervised College (RMPC) in 1993 and chartered......

...Ortiz send me about the application pass it along so you can read it. She talks about that you don’t need to put anything on the application. Whatever notes or whatever you need to put on the application you need to put on onto Sirsi in the extended part under notes. No notes on the paper applications, not worth putting any extra notes on the paper application. There is no reason for anyone to write stored or any other notes on the registration form staff need only to insure form is completed with the requested info and signed by the customer and make sure there is only one account and data entry completed and new entry updated. Before customer leaves the desk any additional notes on form serve no purpose and are a waste of time for the library. January rd​ 3​ email was sent out. Everybody understand that?

And then Mercedes sent me an email, they had sent previous and Virginia has about the applications too. it is mainly about the users whenever somebody pay for a, she had returned a book that was in collection, it still on her acct so I had to call central because on this email it says that we need to let know if we are going to waive some fines from collection because they need to update it at central.

Library Hours

...THINK ABOUT THE LIBRARY HOURS BEING REQUIRED EACH SEMESTER? A library is a place where all the collection of books, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts, maps, prints, etc. kept for reading and consultation to facilitate reference as by classification and indexing. In my own opinion, the library hours being required each semester is very much congruous and pertinent. It showcase the students the ability to give importance and to consider the library to be valuable despite the fact that they only depend upon the advances of technology, with just a click in the internet, everything will be given and all you have to do is to copy and paste without reading the details and tidings. Disseminating the library hours will bestow the dexterity of the students in terms of searching with understandings regarding the problem, assignments and projects. Through this, it will enhance more the capability of the student’s to be assertive in what they’re thinking, doing and sharing because “Libraries are not made; they grow.” IS IT SOMETHING THAT MUST EVEN BE REQUIRED OF YOU OR SOMETHING YOU OUGHT TO BE DOING EVEN WITHOUT PROMPTING? Library hours are not necessary; I guess an individual has its own way on how he/she is comfortable in gaining information or researching, whether through the internet, library or any other tracks or researching, but as of this moment, I do believe that library hours should be a requisite because it opens up the mind and to deliver that a library still exist,......

...desired performance outcomes in the absence of ability, as evidenced by H4. This can be a potential concern for colleges and universities that have low admission standards (i.e., low ACT or SAT score requirements and lower acceptable high school GPAs) or open admission policies. Due to low admission requirements, these institutions are more likely to have a larger percentage of students who lack the minimum ability needed to succeed in college compared with a smaller percentage of such students in colleges and universities that have high admission standards. Therefore, colleges and universities that have relatively low admission standards need to have a process in place to identify those students who lack the necessary abilities (e.g., quantitative skills, verbal skills) to succeed in college and provide them with ample opportunities to develop those abilities while in college by offering remedial courses. Failure to develop those abilities prior to taking college-level courses can be a recipe for poor academic performance and low retention rates. Data compiled by ACT show a strong inverse relationship between admission selectivity and dropout rates: Highly selective = 8.7%, selective = 18.6%, traditional = 27.7%, liberal = 35.5%, and open = 45.4% (ACT Institutional Data File, 2003). Also, on the basis of the results from H3, students with high ability who also spend more time studying are the ones who are most likely to excel in college as indicated by their GPA (Figure 1).......

...right around the corner. The beautiful waterfall catches your eye before you walk up the twenty one gigantic steps leading you to the beautiful glass doors which you would open and then you would enter into a 100 year old building. It almost looks like a mansion, it is so big. I let out a long breath of air as I entered. The feeling like I just got off work from a long day and sat down on the couch and kicked my shoes off. The scenery is so beautiful and relaxing. Custom Bronze Bench Seats that are made of books await you as you enter the first set of doors. These benches are a functional piece of art, for anyone to sit down, relax and enjoy the love of reading. Glass cases in the entrance with very old books and different items for our viewing. A Discovery, warmth, knowledge, dreams, and welcoming, those are just a few of the feelings people get when they walk into this library. Perfume and cologne smell lingers in the air. Tall ceilings with gigantic round light fixtures that hang down, with the lights dimmed. As I walked in, it was so calm and peaceful. Rows and rows of books. Magazines and books lying everywhere. The new books felt smooth, the old books made crinkly noises as you turned the pages and the old table had many rough spots. Artificial trees and plants stand in almost every corner of the library, giving it a unique and beautiful look. A magnificent oil painting, located over the fireplace made you feel at home. The librarian was young with auburn colored......
