How much do volunteer hours affect your college application?Volunteer hours? Not much.Being involved in the community and giving back in some way, shape or form is immensely important when it comes to admissions decisions. If you haven’t seen the Turning the Tide report, I’d suggest reading it to learn more about how admissions committees value community involvement.While it’s great that you are tracking your hours of volunteer week, admissions committees care more about your measurable impact than they do the number of hours you’ve tracked. Let’s consider two hypothetical students here to help demonstrate this point.Student A: Has volunteered over 500 hours at 6 different organizations. Each time, this student takes on a different task and just does what is asked of them for the few hours they are there each day.Admissions committees evaluating Student A would wonder if the student was passionate about any of their volunteer work, or simply did it because it was convenient and they needed the hours to meet high school requirements.Student B: Has volunteered 100 hours at one organization/for one cause. They started by showing up and taking on small tasks, but since they have been so committed to one organization/cause, they have been able to grow in their role and responsibility. Now, this organization relies on the student to achieve certain goals and results.Admissions committees evaluating Student B would see that they have had measurable impact in their volunteer work. And, because this student has been committed to one organization, or one cause, it is easy for the admissions committee to identify the student’s passions and interests.If you’re curious how to highlight your community involvement on the college application, fill out our free profile form and we can discuss how to make sure you’re putting your best foot forward!
Are soldiers ever asked to volunteer for exceptionally dangerous missions?Sort of. There are some jobs in the military that are volunteer-only. Even though joining the US military is voluntary, once in you are mostly at the whims and needs of the military. You may have joined as a cook, but you can be forcibly reclassed into infantry.However, even though infantry doesn’t rate a volunteer-only status, some positions do. Being airborne (paratrooper) requires a volunteer statement, even if you’re going to be an airborne clerk. Ranger Regiment and Special Forces require you to volunteer. EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) requires you to volunteer and you can pull your volunteer statement at any time.During the Battle of Mogadishu (the basis for Black Hawk Down), Gary Gordon and Randy Shughart were on a UH-60 Black Hawk. One UH-60 had crashed and the search and rescue team was enroute. Another UH-60 had gone down. No one was able to make it to the second site due to a combination of not anticipating multiple Black Hawk crashes and because friendly forces were largely pinned down fighting militia forces.Gary and Randy were snipers providing cover from the air. They repeatedly asked permission to go onto the ground to assist any crash survivors. They were initially denied because there were no other forces to assist or extract them. They repeated their request until they were finally granted permission. They fought their way to the crash site, extracted the injured but living pilot, and were engaged by militia forces. They inflicted heavy casualties but were outnumbered and outgunned, and their ammo was running low. After Gordon was killed, Shughart passed his carbine to the pilot, Mike Durant, with only 5 rounds of ammunition remaining. Finally, both snipers were killed and Mike Durant was captured alive.Mike Durant was eventually returned to US custody. Gary and Randy were posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor.I know it’s not quite what you asked for since no one asked them to do it, but they would never have been inserted on the ground if they had not volunteered.
Why do many people in the US have so much resentment about the meager governmental benefits that the poor receive?I am one of the “poor”.I wasn’t for most of my life - I worked as a mechanical engineer and, according to the IRS, had paid taxes since I was 15 and a half and a lifetime’s earnings that stretched into millions of dollars of income (again… that’s income over my working life combined)… then I get hit by a truck and can no longer work. Yes, I have money in savings, but my monthly disability check is less than what I earned in three days of my work.During the beginning of me being on disability, I tried to give back to the community in any way I could - to make myself feel that I was not totally worthless.I volunteered at a local church food bank (two hours per month). The policy was one bag of food per month per person in the household. This food was bought by monies raised by donations to the church and donations from local grocery stores (day-old bread and canned food with a little ding or dent, etc). It was all good food, not C-rations from Vietnam.On one day (it happened all the time, just not at this level), a woman comes in with the proper proof of family size… eleven children and her parents… so fourteen bags of food… she came late on the last day of the month (we had four hours twice a month). We had run low on many items we included in the bags of food.The way this operation worked was: people line up and we open at noon. As people stand in line, volunteers hand out “menu” slips to make sure people did not get food they were allergic to or could not eat (for Kosher/Halal reasons or even no hard food for people with no teeth). It was well-planned… but if we were out of items, we were out. It wasn’t like we could call the grocery store and demand them to make an express delivery or anything…Back to this woman… she had her hair with a very nice weave. Long fingernails that had been expertly manicured and was definitely NOT wearing rags… as she received her bags of food (volunteers helped carry them to her fairly new Mercedes SUV), she complained that her kids do not eat green beans! Why green beans? Last month she got green peas that her kids like, but they won’t eat green beans! She demanded we go out to the store and BUY peas right now.BTW, before we could even offer to take the bags to her vehicle (it was our policy to do it anyway), she blurts out that she is disabled and in now way can carry even ONE bag by herself… I had also overheard her boasting to another person in line about how she gets welfare for each of her dependents (11 kids and her two parents)… for those outside the US, that’s about $10,000 per month in “meager government assistance”.… and she wants the FREE food to be swapped out for something else?Another incident happened at the “Social Services” office.I was there to get a form to fill out regarding my disability… a woman behind the counter had brought in THREE trays of cookies for the people in line.This woman was in front of me. She sees the cookies and asks the woman behind the counter if they are free. The woman says “Yes” and then they go about filling out the forms she was there for… as she leaves, she again asks, “These are free?” the clerk nods and says “Yep, I bring in cookies every day for the people in line”. Without hesitation, the woman in front of me picks up all three trays and dumps every cookie into her large purse as she says “My kids will LOVE these treats”… and walks away.Why do people have a low opinion of those in the US who receive “meager” benefits? There are people who use the system to get everything they can and abuse the generosity of taxpaying citizens.I have a couple more similar stories, one even worse than the two above combined, but I cannot type anymore.People see these stories of those who game the system for additional benefits, or outright cheat the system… demanding a food bank provide peas and not green beans when it’s free food… and you drive a MERCEDES?Taxpayers pay into the system that provides these “meager” benefits, and when they see how the people receiving those benefits cheat and scam the system ending up making MORE than the people being taxed to pay for their aid, it garners some resentment… “Why should I work my butt off, lose a third of my income to taxes, and these people who benefit from my work (via taxes) live better than I do? Why should I work at all?”“If they can afford bi-weekly hair weaves, top-end manicures and drive luxury cars, why do they need money from those working hard every day?”Not everyone games the system, but many do and get away with it. When caught, it makes news… therefore, the regular working “Joe or Jane” only sees the people getting benefits who are nothing but cheaters… the news does nt report about the normal welfare recipient or disabled person, they only report the schemers… and that is the only thing regular Americans see, so the resentment is justified in a way.If the regular American saw how MOST benefit recipients lived, they would see it in a completely different light.
What are some reasons why people don't volunteer?I used to volunteer for stuff. Not once did anyone take me up on my kind offers of help with their endeavors.I volunteered to work evacuation flights out of Beirut during the civil war. (Wars are never civil.) “Thanks for volunteering, but we have enough flight service out of New York.” Show offs.I volunteered to serve Thanksgiving dinner at a shelter. “We’re sorry, we don’t need you. We have enough volunteers to choke a horse.”I volunteered to help build a trail with the Sierra Club. “We’re sorry. We don’t need you. You don’t appear to have digging and log and rock moving experience and we suspect you just want to go camping with us. We’ll be happy to take a donation, though.”I volunteered to work for Teach For America. “We’re sorry. We don’t need your services, and we won’t even bother to tell you why. Probably you should just donate your money.”I volunteered to work with the Red Cross and go to Louisiana from California at my own expense after Hurricane Katrina. “You must fill out these twenty pages of forms saying you release us from all liability even if we lead you straight into a swamp full of alligators, and that you understand that as a volunteer, our group leaders, for whom we’ve given up any hope of decent behavior, will feel free to abuse you and your generous nature, despite the risks you are taking for strangers. And you will need a ton of supplies. And by the way, you could die, and we won’t help you if you do.”The last one was the nail in the Red Cross donation coffin. I’d already heard too much about them, and none of it was good.Despite gifts of time or money to charitable organizations, they feel no obligation to help you back. Big Brothers, United Way, they can kiss my disposable income. Except Meals on Wheels. They brought us meals when my ankle was broken, and I couldn’t fix dinner for awhile.A strange woman at the pool told me she volunteers at a charitable organization five hours a day, five days a week, and thought I should, too. If I was gonna do that, I’d better be earning some dough.So I limit my volunteering to unseen, unsung efforts that don’t require expense, don’t lead to rejection or abuse, and don’t require scheduling blocks of hours out of every day.I pick up trash, I give money to homeless people, a sandwich to a hot, exhausted young traveler, cold water and a temporary resting spot for a lost or ailing animal, a courteous gesture to a stranger, a willing ear for family and friends and all the free advice they want. They don’t even need to tell me they didn’t take it.The upshot is, a bunch of people had their chance. I’m done with volunteering. There’s only so much rejection a girl can take.Edit: There is one charity for which my broker volunteered the entire office, mainly for her own aggrandizement; Habitat for Humanity. I resented someone else deciding how I should spend my off hours, and which charity I should work for. And I didn’t want to build a house for a family of four who had more income than I did as a newbie realtor. I had work to hustle up. The hell with that noise.
Why is Japan so safe?I have spent quite a bit of time in Japan, not living there, but doing business there. So maybe not quite as much of an expert as some.I agree with 90% of the answers here. The ones that don't seem to ring quite true are the ones that imply that there's just as much crime in Japan as anywhere else, but it's just not reported, or it's ignored by the police as they co-exist with the Yakuza.Yes, the Yakuza represent organized crime in Japan. But my experience is that they don't commit crime on law abiding citizens. They provide 'services' that might not be looked on as desirable by most of society to those who seek out those services. They look after their interests in perhaps, shall we say, indelicate, maybe even occasionally violent ways. But unless you're looking for trouble, trouble won't find you. They won't break into your home to steal. They won't mug you on the street.And yes the police have an improbably high rate of solving crimes and getting convictions, some convictions being dubious.And yes, there is bullying in Japan and there is some sexual violence.But in my experience none of this accounts for the huge discrepancies between Japanese crime rates and western crime rates.A business colleague of mine tells the following story. He grew up in a tough neighborhood in Philadelphia. On his first business trip to Japan he noticed vending machines on the streets that sold beer. He was amazed. He couldn't understand how this could be legal. What stopped teenagers from buying beer? Even more improbable, what stopped punks from smashing the machines and stealing all the beer? Not one would still be standing in his old Phili neighborhood.Finally, he couldn't stand it any longer, he had to ask his Japanese hosts what the story was here. Upon hearing the question they looked at him a little strangely, not sure they understood the question, and then after finally assuring themselves that they heard correctly, their answer was simple:"Because they know they're not supposed to."This was a uniquely cultural answer that my colleague didn't at first understand. Of course they know they're not supposed to, all kids all over the world know they're not supposed to, but the difference in Japan is that kids believe it - at least far, far more than believe it in many other parts of the world. The difference is the unique culture.This issue of culture was mentioned in some of the answers, but not highlighted much. To me, the unique culture is a huge reason for why common crime, especially crimes against property, are so rare in Japan. The culture of societal shame is a very powerful force. And you don't just shame yourself. You shame your family, your friends, your community, your business colleagues.This is why you see very public, very visible and very sincere apologies from the presidents of huge companies when their company has done something wrong and has in some way hurt or cheated their customers. In fact an admission of guilt and a deep and sincere apology with genuine remorse can go a long way to getting the average citizen a much reduced punishment from the law.To understand this you need to understand a little about Japanese history. Until you've been to Japan it's difficult to understand just how little livable land there is on the islands. Probably 80%, maybe more is too mountainous to use. So everyone is cramped into a small space and historically, trying to get along, with paper walls, meant you had to behave. Especially in the old feudal system where a Samurai would as soon cut your head off at a stroke if you annoyed him. It didn't take long for societal norms of politeness, honesty, non-confrontation and so on to take hold.Japan is of course thoroughly modern today, and have whole heartedly, even enthusiastically embraced western ideas and adapted them to their culture, but the culture of shame for misdeeds has never gone away.UPDATESome have pointed out to me that there is a dark side to Japanese culture. That the Japanese are very tribal. That they consider themselves culturally superior to everyone else. That they can at times be dishonest in their extraordinary politeness, as a way to mask their disapproval or even disgust of non-Japanese people and their ways.This is true. I've witnessed it myself. It also explains their atrocious behavior in WWII.They've also pointed out that the culture is slowly changing. Also true. It's slowly becoming more westernized all the time. Including in areas relating to crime, especially among youth. I understand that the beer machines of my example are now getting phased out due to growing issues with underage drinking. My story above dates to the 90s.I have also been taken to task for impugning the good name of the Samurai. The Samurai lived by a well developed code of honor known as Bushido. They didn't go around whacking the heads off of people they didn't like whenever they felt like it. Another one of those honorable culture issues. I apologize to any Japanese I may have offended when I made a flippant remark in an attempt to make a point. Still, as in any feudal hierarchy, it wasn't in your best interest to offend the guy at the top who had the power of arms.Nonetheless, those aspects of Japanese culture that may be undesirable in other ways, those right wing elements of Japanese society that wish to return to the old days of Imperial Japan, actually reinforce the cultural prohibitions against common street crime.Japan is still among the safest countries on earth when it comes to street crime, interpersonal violence and crimes against property (Singapore is in the same league), if not the safest. The old culture is still strong.SOME FACTS AND FIGURESFound this interesting website that compares crime rates in different countries.Japan vs United States: Crime Facts and StatsI don't doubt that crimes such as rape are under reported in Japan. Rape is under reported in the US too.Even if you think the Japanese under report crime, it's hard to believe they could mask differences of the magnitude reported here.ANOTHER INTERESTING LOOK AT THE QUESTIONI really like Lim Son Eng's answer:Lim Son Eng's answer to Why is Japan so safe?I don't know how true it is, but it certainly sounds very plausible, and in some sort of way, I hope it is true. Maybe a Japanese native could comment one way or the other.NOVEMBER 2017 UPDATE:Please see the recently added comment from Kentaro Chiba for further insight into Lim Son Eng’s answer, and also into the role of the Yakuza in Japanese crime, as well into Japanese ultra-right wing politics.
How should I keep track of volunteer hours? Also, do “volunteer hours” mean the actual time you stayed volunteering or just the one event you did?Are you keeping track for school, for the organization, for yourself, or for some other reason?If it’s a requirement for school, or if it’s something the organization does to report to their donors and supporters, take the time to learn how they want it done. When student volunteers help us park bicycles, they sometimes bring a form from school, and the organization’s volunteer coordinator fills it out. Find out if that’s what’s going on, or if an email confirmation will do, or if there’s some other requirement.If it’s the organization keeping track, ask their coordinators what to track, if it’s not clear. When I did reading tutoring, their form had separate lines for tutoring time, tutor preparation time, learner preparation/homework time, and travel time. I believe they wrapped all that information into their annual report.In the absence of other instructions, I’d suggest reporting time you actually spent there, doing whatever you were doing, unless you did something signNow before you got there. So if you helped us park bikes for a couple hours, you’d report those two hours. If you spent another couple of hours at home improving the brochure, you could report those, too, but the trip to get there and the time you spend emailing, “Yes, I’ll be there Saturday” probably don’t count.
How does it feel to get off heroin?Really really shitty.First, you have the withdrawal. Withdrawal is like having a cold and the flu and vertigo and food poisoning and also you're too hot and too cold and your skin tries to crawl off of your body.The reason this happens is because taking heroin on a regular basis causes your nerve endings to shrivel up and die. This is also the reason why heroin addicts often can't get erections or lose their sex drive: sexual stimulation is nothing compared to the euphoria of heroin.Anyway, when you stop doing heroin, your nerve endings start to come back. The opioid receptors in your brain start throwing a tantrum, shrieking at you to fill them up again.There are medications that remove the symptoms of withdrawal. However, the catch is that you have to start withdrawal in order for them to be effective.Here's how works: a strip of (which most commonly comes in the form of an orange sublingual film that tastes like orange-flavored cat shit) contains and naloxone. The naloxone (also knows as the anti-overdose drug) prevents people from trying to inject the . If you take while the heroin is still in your system, you will go into precipitated withdrawal and the won't be effective.There's a scale, called COWS (Clinical Opiate Withdrawal Scale), that measures the progress of withdrawal. It is an 11-item test that clinicians use to determine whether a patient can be given yet. It is important that the patient be in moderate withdrawal (>10 points) before they receive the Subs. If you are curious about withdrawal and would like a more thorough explanation of the symptoms, I highly recommend looking at the link I provided. works by preventing the user from getting high off of heroin while they are taking the Subs. This is important because is effective at managing cravings for two reasons: 1) it prevents the heroin from working and 2) even if you stop taking it, you have to wait at least a few days before the heroin will affect you.This helps with cravings because most cravings only last a few minutes. As long as you can ride out those 20 or so minutes without picking up, you're usually ok for at least the next few hours. If you know that you won't get high even if you do pick up, it effectively stops you from bothering to waste money.Cravings are even worse than withdrawal. At least with physical pain, you know that there is an end in sight. With the psychological pain of cravings, you know that it will be years, even decades, before you can feel “normal” again.The only good thing about stopping heroin is that your finances immediately and signNowly improve. You can spend money on fun things and try to distract yourself from the fact that you can never, ever experience the intense euphoria of heroin ever again.I do enjoy volunteering at the needle exchange and my Smart Recovery meetings. But I will always know, in the back of my mind, that I have experienced the chemical equivalent of a hundred simultaneous orgasms and I can never ever touch opiates again or I will slide back into addiction.Sliding back into addiction is incredibly dangerous. Because your tolerance has been lowered signNowly, you are at a much higher risk for overdosing. This is how many people end up overdosing after doing only one shot following a clean period: they do the same amount they are used to doing and it is far too much for them.Withdrawal sucks. Cravings suck. Track marks suck. Being in debt sucks. People not trusting you sucks.Heroin sucks.
