Chris believed that by going off on his own in the Alaskan wilderness he would change himself; finally know what his purpose was in life. From what Chris wrote in his journal, he implied that happiness comes from finding yourself, not by how many people you have a personal relationship with. Chris, who had renamed himself as “Alexander Super-tramp”, wrote in his journal “I didn’t really mind the absence of intimacy in my life, the lack of real human connection” (137). Writing this thought down in his journal, he had proven that human connection to him was nice, but not necessary. People need connections with others, but these connections are not always what brings them to their absolute highest level of happiness.
I personally have had many experiences where this general rule is true and I found myself comparing instead of observing. However, there are also many times when I have experienced things where it seems like I am the first to ever discover it and I see it for what it truly is. Although Percy makes a valid argument for expectations clouding your view of something, in my personal experiences I have come to realize that in many cases this is not true and your emotions can make an experience new and unique from anyone else’s regardless of how similar you physical experiences were.

Applied Business Law-6: Week 1 Sandra McHenry Everest University Online This assignment required me to go to Transparency International at Transparency.org and review the materials on corruption and then discuss two items that I found most interesting. There were many things on the Transparency International website that I found interesting. The first thing I found that caught my interest was an article on whistleblowing.

Yet we as individuals tend to forget the fact that these findings were compiled due to a period of intensive research. There is a huge amount of work shadowed behind each and every fact that we come across in our daily lives. In this essay I will discuss the process undertaken by sociologists as they compile their findings and the ways in which they analyse this information to provide us with the statistics of the occurances in the everyday lives of the human race. Sociologists have the ability to analyse the happenings in this world through many different methods.
I wanted to know all the little details, especially the “whys”, and in school, there was never time for those types of questions. We had a certain amount of time to cover a certain amount of information and asking additional questions was an impediment to getting it done. So I find this week's readings and the questions posed to actually stop to think about it very interesting. I was surprised to hear how many of the World Bank's projects have backfired on it. For example, Sobradinho Dam was built thanks to the World Bank's financial help.
