My Thoughts:

According to this, I can get into University of Washington and Washington State University pharmacy schools after taking the required courses at Western Washington University. However it also informs me that these school's pharmacy programs are really selective and require high GPA's as well as a letter of recomendation and an interview. At Western I will be taking general classes, such as biology and chemistry, for the first few years and then during my senior year I will be preparing for a pharmacy institution. A majority of the classes that I will be taking will be science related but I will be taking some classes such as Microeconomics and Written Communications.

sam !!'s insight:

With this option, I understand that i can take this class as well as what classes I need to take to proceed in this direction. These programs show that they are very selective, and the classes will be difficult. That there will help me decide whether I really want to go through with this or not, or whether I am qualified.

I decided to add this to my scoop it because I researched about pharmacist. In my research I discovered in-depth details about what a pharmacist does, but not in-depth details about how to become one. This is why I chose this piece. I feel like this piece of material is valuable because it goes more in-depth about what pre-pharmacy is. I need to know this information, so that I can plan ahead and finish pre-pharmacy within two years.

Senate women call for fair minimum wage for women and families | Education Votes | NEA.org

Senate women call for fair minimum wage for women and families | Education Votes | NEA.org | Western Washington & Mod Pizza applying | Scoop.it

In communities across the country, “lunch lady” is a term of endearment.

 

It’s shorthand for “the caring, hard-working gals who make sure our kids have healthy food to eat in a safe, clean environment.”

 

But even after putting in full-time hours taking care of hundreds of students and working amid hot ovens and steaming dishwashers, those  women too often struggle to support their own families—especially those making only minimum wage. Fifteen percent of full-time food service workers in schools even qualify for public assistance.

 

Raising the minimum wage is one crucial step in bettering the lives of working women and their families, a point emphasized on Capitol Hill by a group of U.S. Senators supporting passage of the Minimum Wage Fairness Act.

 

Nearly two-thirds of minimum wage workers are women, and raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour as the Act proposes would especially help 15 million American women.

 

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said at a press event on Tuesday that now is the time for Congress to pass the increase. “I truly believe that it’s part of making our economy work,” she said.

 

“Republicans have to decide whether they are really going to block giving 15 million American women a raise,” Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) said at a similar event in January.

 

“My hope is that … our Republican colleagues do a little soul searching as they prepare for this vote. I also hope they talk to the millions of American women who are struggling to get by on $7.25 an hour, particularly at a time when many of these women are the sole caregivers and breadwinners in their families.”

 

The focus on families is welcomed by Edith Kimball, a food service worker from Lee, Florida, who traveled to Washington in February to tell a Senate Committee how raising the minimum wage would help families just like hers.

The Exceptional Motivational Power Of Pizza

The Exceptional Motivational Power Of Pizza | Western Washington & Mod Pizza applying | Scoop.it

Over the decades I was involved in more employee surveys than I can recall.  But one thing I do recall is that the single issue that came up in literally all of them – a chronic source of employee frustration – was lack of recognition.   Employees never felt they were getting enough of it.

 

Yesterday I was reminded yet again how big a difference small things make in management.   I was speaking with a young woman in a very good mood.  She’d just gotten out of work – she has a temporary position at a hotel, greeting guests who are in town for conferences – and at the end of the day her supervisor had told her she was doing a fine job and gave her a small card.  The young woman showed me the card.  It said:

“We appreciate your outstanding service!  Thank you for being so welcoming, thoughtful and friendly to our guests.   Please enjoy a slice of pizza & a Pepsi for 75 cents as our thanks.”  At the bottom of the card were listed several local eateries where the card could be redeemed.

I sort of wondered why she had to pay 75 cents – why weren’t the pizza and Pepsi free?  But no matter.  And no matter that the card’s value (let’s assume around here in round numbers a slice of pizza costs $3 and a Pepsi $1) was around $3.25.  The young woman couldn’t have been more pleased.  The card was the highlight of her day.

How Female Professionals Can Mentor The Next Generation | Sandy Marshall Blog | Huff Post

How Female Professionals Can Mentor The Next Generation | Sandy Marshall Blog | Huff Post | Western Washington & Mod Pizza applying | Scoop.it

Why am I not a female scientist? I wanted to be, and I even entered my undergraduate studies with dreams of one day becoming a doctor. But, like many girls in the sciences, when the coursework became challenging, I lost the confidence in my ability to pursue my dream and complete my studies. I lacked a community of support to see me through the challenges; a group of women and girls that could speak from experience and help me see my potential and visualize my future in the sciences. Unfortunately my experience is not unique and one that is faced by so many girls and young women today.

 

I ended up completing my degree in Public Policy and Administration and spent the next 20 years working as a non-profit executive. But, over the past several years through my work as Executive Director of The NASCAR Foundation, I became increasingly aware of the disadvantages that girls and women still face in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) today. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, although women fill close to half of all jobs in the U.S. economy, they hold less than 25 percent of STEM jobs. A few of the contributing factors to this difference include: a lack of female role models, gender stereotyping and less family-friendly flexibility in the STEM fields.

 

So, I founded Project Scientist in order to engage with and inspire my two daughters and other young girls with a passion for the STEM subjects. We just wrapped up our Project Scientist Academy, a four-week summer camp that provides an engaging and fun environment for girls, ages 4-12, with an aptitude, talent, and passion for STEM. The Academy brings together like-minded girls who enjoy exploring through the sciences and celebrating their accomplishments.

 

A key tent pole of our Academy and pipeline is the use of female STEM professionals from across the country and world for our mentorship program, which we call Project Scientist Superstars. Mentors have the opportunity to visit camp and lead a project with the girls, Skype with campers or do a video interview Q&A to share their personal story about what sparked their interest in the sciences and whom they count as personal mentors.

sam !!'s insight:

Reading this has definitely inspired me as a person to look more into the scientific background, seeing as I am an adolescent female who is interested in science- though not necessarily STEM research- it is nice to see people sticking up for girls- especially younger girls- and hopefully we see others sticking up for us too. With our part in our future, I am proud to see opinions changing, and inspiration happening for girls like us.

Male Scientists More Prone to Misconduct, Study Concludes

Male Scientists More Prone to Misconduct, Study Concludes | Western Washington & Mod Pizza applying | Scoop.it

Male scientists—especially at the upper echelons of the profession—are far more likely than women to commit misconduct. That's the bottom line of a new analysis by three microbiologists of wrongdoing in the life sciences in the United States. Ferric Fang of the University of Washington, Seattle; Joan Bennett of Rutgers University; and Arturo Casadevall of Albert Einstein College of Medicine combed through misconduct reports on 228 people released by the U.S. Office of Research Integrity (ORI) over the last 19 years. They then compared the gender balance—or imbalance, in this case—against the mix of male and female senior scientists and trainees to gauge whether misconduct was more prevalent among men.
