One Week startled me; because I expected a typical road movie in which a person goes on to find himself. This movie opens with the protagonist Ben Taylor in his doctor’s office, receiving the news that he has stage 4 cancers. His chances of survival are very low, but there was a hope, that he could beat the disease if the treatment begins. This moment Ben decides to do a few things he always wanted to do because he knew that he might not get another chance.
I occasionally enjoy watching movies; they provide a great source of entertainment especially when trying to curtail boredom. While some movies challenge your imagination, others just disappoint by their baseless stories, however, a few manage to stand out through the message they convey. One Week, a soulful Canadian drama is undoubted amongst those which provoke you to think and re-evaluate life.

One Week is more of a coming of age story though in this scenario the transition unfolds within adulthood. I learned how it is never too late to discover yourself, no matter what the circumstances. Ben, the protagonist, identifies his true feelings and embraces his beliefs by taking a chance of a lifetime, given his cancer was almost fatal. His reckless choice of embarking on a road trip over receiving treatment turned out to be the recovery he really needed. The movie conveys a very strong message about exploring life, taking a chance and seizing the day. Sometimes that 'gut' feeling can take you places or potentially save you, as, in this case. I, personally, do agree with the message here, it deals with an unconventional form of hope and encourages people to break through their inhibitions.

The movie is essentially based on a road trip and it is a little surreal how everyone Ben encounters during his journey has somewhat a life turning the inspiration for Ben and vice versa. A…...

...Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our hotel. I am sorry that this incident had unfortunately ruined what seemed to otherwise be a pleasant experience. Our hotel is currently in the process of a rejuvenation project and from time to time there had been some leakage in a select number of rooms. This leaking has since ceased in all rooms, with the completion of our pipeline replacement project concluding this past Monday. At the Crone Plaza Hotel we are nothing if not a promoter of respect and fairness for our guests, but even we make mistakes.  I feel terrible about the damages and hardship you encountered, our facilities department doesn't start work until 8:30am, so I apologize for your extended wait. As the manager, I am always working to provide my guests with the best customer service available. When you were asked go switch rooms my staff was just looking out for the best interest of yourself and other guests so they could correct the problem and maintain the high standards expected at the Crone Plaza Hotel. I work towards providing all my guests with the same hospitality that I'd give my own family, so it personally hurts me that you didn't enjoy your stay. I've sent you an inbox message with my personal contact information. I'd like you to please contact me directly, so that I can learn all the details and the extent of the damage and we can work towards righting our wrong. I sincerely hope this experience doesn't discourage you from staying......

The objective of any media organization is to provide the public with news reports that “seek and report the truth, encourage civic debate to build our communities, and serve the public interest.”i stated in principle by the Canadian Association of Journalists. We will address three ethnical issues brought to our attention related to editorial bias, anonymous sources and attribution, and respect for the right of privacy. Furthermore, we will examine one of three ethical paths presented in today’s journalism. They “defend freedom of expression and freedom of the press”ii The three ethical paths include amoral, which can be defined as not questioning what is right or wrong or inserting moral standard in the reporting. Secondly, immoral involves the violation of journalistic code of conduct or principles. Lastly, moral concerns conforming to the rules, norms and acceptable journalistic codes of conduct, which will be our main focus. In this context, morality includes the ethical responsibilities such as not abusing its press freedom, avoiding unnecessary harm to any subjects, being......

...From: ka_alvare, Manager of Cascades Hotel and Conference Centre, Toronto Date: December 18, 2015 To: Five3Nine Subject: Improving Hotel Services Dear Five3Nine, Thank you for spending time at our hotel and giving us your detailed feedback. At Cascades Hotel, we strive to make our guests satisfied, and so your word is important to us. It is with great regret that your stay at our hotel was unsatisfactory. Prior to your stay, your hotel carpet had been steam cleaned by staff to improve your stay. Unfortunately, the ventilation system in your particular room had malfunctioned a few nights before. This is what had caused the carpet not to dry in time for your stay, and so refurbishment of the room was necessary but very last minute. We make it an effort to ensure that our guests are comfortable during their stay. This time of the year, hotel rooms are almost always completely full, and unfortunately we could not simply accommodate you with another room as, according to the reception desk, all rooms were booked that night. There is no excuse for our lack of speedy service at the front desk, but again, this was our busiest time of the year and we received a larger volume of phone calls during this time as well. Rest assured, we do our best to fulfil our customer needs, and so as soon as a room was available we would let you know and move you immediately to a much standardized location. It is with much importance that our guests are provided a backup for recovery, and so...

Project Service Learning

... Service Learning is the cornerstone class that links academic studies at the College of Muscogee Nation (CMN) with the student and the communities. Each will strengthen the other as we learn to use cultural and historical facts and traditions to face social problems, meet human needs, promote civic responsibility and provide a basis for future citizen support. My service project is using volunteerism to improve the quality of life for the children in the Okmulgee area by applying the Muscogee traditions and culture taught to us through the curriculum of College of Muscogee Nation and our ancestors. The first goal of this service learning project is to improve the quality of life for the children of the low-income Okmulgee community residents. A historical assessment of the Okmulgee area provides a picture of drastic change and a people trying to make genuine progress in face of pressure beyond their control. This area, like the United States, has experienced drastic changes in the last fifty years including loss of manufacturing plants such as the Peanut Plant, Phillips 66 Refinery, Americana Window Glass, Ingersoll-Rand, and Ball Brothers Glass. The 2013 U.S. Census Bureau lists the population of Okmulgee as 12, 373 with 25.5% below poverty level. The per capita income for the 12 months (in 2013 dollars) is 16, 981 compared to the national per capita of $24,208.
