DOLE-OUT MENTALITY vs. ACCOMPLISHMENT DRIVEN PUBLIC SERVICE: HOW WILL THEY INFLUENCE OUR VOTES IN THE COMING POLLS

The changes in outlook of the voters regarding elections seems to indicate hopelessness. The voters becoming cynical about Philippine politics thus, the most important factor for them in choosing the candidates are those from whom they will benefit most. It is manifested in the voters’ acceptance of money being offered to them during election, the dole-out mentality. They accept money during the election period because they think that it is only during elections they can directly benefit from the candidates. This implies that voters have a limited appreciation of governance and policies that affect them, such that good governance is not a major factor to consider in their decision-making.

Candidates win the elections mainly because of the political machinery, platform, popularity and public image. The machinery contributes to the candidates’ reach of influence particularly at the local level, while campaign funds oil the machinery to run efficiently. But some felt that the intelligent voters’ basis of selecting a candidate is their platform and program of government. For the intelligent voter it is important because it is based on the consultations and identification of the problems of the community that should be addressed, the accomplishments of public service rendered by the candidates during their respective terms.

Vote-buying is especially noteworthy and should not be tolerated but vote buying has become a common practice or “nakagawian na” and that nothing can be done about it anymore or “wala nang magagawa”. Vote buying, in particular – is being the most prevalent form of election fraud.

Why do candidates give/dole out money during elections? It is imperative for candidates or political parties to give money in exchange of votes, but…...

Fallout is the third and final book of the Crank series. I had been greatly anticipating this book since I am a huge fan of Hopkins and her fans have been waiting since 2004 to see Kristina's fate. So, when the book finally came out, I couldn't put it down. It wasn't because it was fantastic like I had hoped, but I felt like I had to finish it to finish the series. The book was told from the perspective of three of her five children. Hunter, who is her oldest and who we learned about in the first two books, Autumn, and Summer. Each child lives a different life with different guardians, all not in the best situations. They also know of each other from other family members or Kristina herself, but they have yet to meet one another. Kristina is not in any of their lives, she's rarely in this book.

Tuned Out

...Michael Center 12/11/09 Soc 216 Tuned Out As more and more young people begin to turn their backs on political news, America is seeking the greatest decline in informed citizenship in its history.  Though no one can say for sure what the exact cause for this is, there are many theories speculated upon. David Mindich explains in his book, “Tuned Out-Why Americans Under 40 Don’t Follow the News”, how today’s generation of Americans, for the most part, do not follow the news.   In his text, Mindich discusses his findings on news consumption among people of this generation.  I conducted interviews with a couple of my peers to examine their patterns of news consumption.  My findings along with Mindich’s will help explain why there has been a decline in the amount of people who actively consume news. People today do not pay attention to news for a variety of reasons. The two people I interviewed were asked why they thought people today don’t keep up with news. Some of the answers I got were “that people are too busy to take time out of their day”, and “the news is boring”. The results that I came across showed that both of the people I interviewed did not follow much political news, but were knowledgeable about entertainment facts and people. Neither of them thought that an individual like themselves could make a difference in the world, one of them said “one person cannot affect the masses”. Also, neither of the two were a part of any groups or......

Love on the Dole

...In this piece of work I am going to review the book ‘Love On The Dole’, written by Walter Greenwood. The story is based in ‘Hanky Park’ which is a fictional place on the outskirts of Salford in Manchester. The novel is written about the old days and describes in great detail struggles that many ordinary working class people face in life. The story in this book tells us of the social issues regarding unemployment and social deprivation. The story is based in a neighbourhood where residents would help each other where possible, even though many of them did not have a lot to offer. It tells us of the hardworking jobs that children had to do, for a very low wage. Many of the boys got taken on in factories for an apprentice when they were very young but then got laid off as soon as they hit they age where they would have to be paid a man’s wage. After this happened many men faced trouble getting back into work and therefore had to live a life on the dole. As if having to live off the dole wasn’t bad enough they then had to face a ‘means test’. Anybody wanting to go on the dole would have to have an assessment to make sure they were eligible to receive the funding. The whole family would get looked at to see if they had enough money to support them. This meant that in many cases one wage had to be enough to support a whole family. They faced many struggles. In order for these people to get money to be able to put food on the table and pay their rent to keep a roof over their......

Out of Control

...Out of Control Pennsylvania Highlands Community College Out of Control Question #1: Using Exhibit 2-5 and the information from the case, describe the culture at Toyota Motor Corporation. Why do you think this type of culture might be important to a car maker? In the 1950’s, when Toyota first started making cars, they had a people oriented culture within their company. The principle that was “Good thinking means good product” (Robbins & Coulter) meant that they were willing to take their time to think of new ideas that would improve their company. Starting in the 1990’s though, they took on a more aggressive culture. The focus of the company went from producing a quality product, to producing as many cars as possible while trying to cut costs. Cutting cost may help the company financially, but as it turns out in this example, it backfired. With a recall that “involves 7.43 million vehicles worldwide sold under the Toyota and Scion brands” (NBC News wire services), the company must now spend money in order to repair the broken parts on the vehicle’s so that there are no longer any safety problems. Question #2: How do you think a long-standing culture that had such a strong commitment to quality lost its ability to influence employee behaviors and actions? What lesson can be learned about organizational culture from this? It is not surprising to me that the Toyota Company lost its commitment to quality. It rough times, people look for ways to......

Out Out

...A young man is cutting firewood with a buzz saw in New England. Near the end of the day, the boy’s sister announces that it is time for dinner and, out of excitement, the boy accidentally cuts his hand with the saw. He begs his sister not to allow the doctor to amputate the hand but inwardly realizes that he has already lost too much blood to survive. The boy dies while under anesthesia, and everyone goes back to work. Analysis Frost uses the method of personification to great effect in this poem. The buzz saw, though technically an inanimate object, is described as a cognizant being, aggressively snarling and rattling as it does its work. When the sister makes the dinner announcement, the saw demonstrates that it has a mind of its own by “leaping” out of the boy’s hand in its excitement. Frost refuses to lay blame for the injury on the boy, who is still a “child at heart.” In addition to blaming the saw, Frost blames the adults at the scene for not intervening and telling the boy to “call it a day” before the accident occurred. Had the boy received an early excuse from the workday, he would have avoided cutting off his hand and would have been saved from death. Moreover, a mere half-hour break from his job would have allowed the boy to regain part of his childhood, if only for a moment. Frost’s emphasis on the boy’s passivity and innocence in this situation is particularly significant in the context of the time period. After moving to England with his family,......

To Be in or to Be Out

...Carolyn Lemon-Lewis Robert Lang English 111 11 July 2014 To Be out or To Be In “The church in the United States has strongly resisted the movement to legalize same-sex marriage, arguing that it would legitimize intrinsically evil homosexual acts (Pope Francis). The religious leaders are opposes same-sex marriage because the Bible states evidence to support their belief. Same-sex marriage on the religious perspective. There are several scripture that supports why same-sex marriage is against God. However, the first scripture: “God created man in His image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. God blessed them; and God said to them,' Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth”(Genesis 1:27-28). God did not create man and man, woman and woman He created male and female to recreate the earth. How can a male and male recreate, and the Bible does not say anything about adoption. It clearly states, “be fruitful and multiply.” The very first mention of sexual immorality was when two messengers from God had come to visit Lot. All the young and old men came to Lot house and asked for the two strangers to come out, so they could do to them whatever they wanted to do, but Lot beg the crowd to take his daughters. And the angels blinded all the men young and old. This was the reason God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah,......

Out, Out-

...How does Frost create a sense of horror in his poem ‘Out, Out-‘ Frosts creates a sense of horror in his poem ‘Out, Out-‘through his use of repetition and the use of caesura and figurative speech. Frost concentrates also on the apparent innocence and passivity of the boy. "Out, Out-" is a poem by American poet Robert Frost, published in 1916. It tells the story of a young boy who dies after his hand is severed by a "saw”. This poem was apparently based on a true story. The title ‘Out, Out-‘is an allusion to William Shakespeare’s tragedy Macbeth ‘out, out-brief candle’, it refers to how unpredictable and fragile life is like a candle is being blown out. To begin, Personification is used in line 1 personification is used to make the buzz saw more horrifying. ‘The buzz saw snarled and rattled in the yard’. This creates an image of a monster, something dangerous and has a mind of its own The use of personification continues into line 8’ as it ran or had to bear a load’ this shows the reader how destructive this buzz saw is and how effortless it is at it, this also extends the metaphor. Also in line 16 ‘leaped out at the boy’s hand, or seemed to leap-’the saw is still personified and therefore adds horror to this line, the use of the word ‘at’ is emphasized here, like a vicious creature the buzz saw leaped out at the boy’s hand, making it seem like the boy lost all control and is helpless. Also the use of caesura is particularly effective in this part of the poem as it adds......

Stripper on Dole

...of the ‘stripper on dole’ news article This article is a report from the tabloid newspaper ‘The Sun’. The main purpose of the article is to cause the reader to have a negative opinion towards the “mum”. This is a sensational piece of writing which means there is a lot of exaggerated detail which evokes interest from the reader. However the content is quite plain and the article contains very short paragraphs with a very repetitive introduction. I will be analysing the use and effects of the headline, strap line, the crime, picture and finally who the article is about. Firstly the headline is very bold and has quite a large font size which is used to catch the eye of the reader. The first word in the headline is the common/concrete noun “stripper” which is used to create an overall negative vibe due to the fact that strippers are not ranked very highly in society. The word “stripper” is used in his context to evoke a salacious response. The concrete noun “stripper” is followed by the noun “dole” which gives the reader the sense that this person is lazy and immoral. The verb “cavorts” is also used in the headline in a derogatory way to imply that the “stripper” is acting in an indecent way. This is also used by the writer to strike controversy in the audience. The headline includes the rhyme of “dole” and “pole” which could have been used for the effect of mocking the woman. The rhyme was also used to keep the reader engaged and to make the article stand out by having a......

"Out, Out-" Analysis by Rukhaya

...“Out,Out-“ is a miniature dramatic narrative by Robert Frost. Frost depicts the abrupt death of a young boy whose hand has been severed by a buzz-saw. “The poem was apparently based on a true story of a boy's death whilst working in New England.”(Wikpedia) The account though heart-rending is described in an objective manner by the poet. The fact that no personal comments are made on part of the poet, exemplify that he does not intend to emotionally drain the readers. Rather he intends on intellectually stimulating the readers into the inevitability of death and the futility of life. The title has been taken from Macbeth’s soliloquy in which he ruminates over the death of his wife. The hollowness and insignificance of life is hinted at in this soliloquy, by the eloquent image of the candle that mirrors the transitory nature of life: "Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing." Analysis: At the outset, the buzz-saw is shown to be snarling and rattling. The twin-sided aspects of life are echoed here .The buzz-saw at once transforms itself into the metaphor of the Giver of Life:it gives ,yet it takes. The verb ‘snarled’ echoes how it is animate, yet machine-like; human, yet devoid of emotions. The verb ‘rattled” sounds the rattle of the child and the rattle of the snake: innocence and......

Walmart in or Out

...it’s expanding each and every day. Walmart has become a modern day monopoly. Walmart isn’t boosting the economy most of its goods come from outside the U.S. which is hurting our economy because money isn’t flowing. About 70% of its merchandise is imported from China and Indonesia and China where the cost of labor is cheap and there are no labor laws. Studies have shown when Walmart moves into a town the life expectancy of local businesses decreases instantly. Walmart is a company known for taking competitors out of business. Consumers are lured to Walmart because of it better product, more choices, lower prices, and people get what they need. A Wal-Mart employee typically earns $8.23 an hour, while the average supermarket worker makes $10.35. Walmart does not provide health insurance for most of its workers relying on the government to. They have so much power and control over their suppliers they dictates the prices. I believe people fear creating new businesses with Walmart out there; they cannot compete with Walmart’s low prices because it is such a large corporation. Therefore, I Believe Walmart should not be opened to New York because it will turn boniness upside down and do more harm than good....

Out of the Cradle or Out of the Mind?

...Out of the Cradle or Out of the Mind? By Luke Niederhelman Mrs. Main English Literature and Composition 103 12 May 2015 Walt Whitman: father, husband, poet. According to the Poetry Foundation, “Whitman is regarded as one of America’s most significant nineteenth century poets.” One piece of his was written in the late 1800’s. Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking is a poem about the reminiscence of life. This poem features a boy walking along the beach and finds two mockingbirds. These birds interact with one another everyday. However, one day the female bird fails to appear, and the male cries “Out of the mocking-birds throat,” for her (Whitman 2). When the young boy hears the cry he is startled and awakened. The persona then depicts the males actions in search of her. As this happens, the startled boy recognizes the impact nature has on the human mind and his own burgeoning conscious. Whitman’s use of poetic elements allows the reader to connect to a theme of love and death. From structure and repetition, to rhythm and form, these elements serve as a framework for the relationship between the two. Many elements contribute to the theme. The first element is the structure of the poem. Whitman writes alternating the use of dactylic and trochaic meter. First, the poem begins with a dactylic meter using a long syllable followed by two short syllables: “Out of the” (Whitman 1). Secondly, a trochee is used providing a stressed syllable, followed by an...
