Fight For Life by Glenn D. Grace

Thanks for sharing my friend!


Our greatest achievements manifest when we are diligent in self-discovery, and are able to accept ourselves for who and what we are. The level of peace within us at that point enhances our spiritual awareness, and we triumphantly emerge from the shadow of our former selves…

I chose to write about this particular topic because it demonstrates and synthesizes what my classmates and I learned about operations management this year. Here’s how…

Before the vaccine was released, a vaccine candidate trial was conducted by Pfizer and their partner, BioNTech, to see what results each company would receive and compare them after. Three possible outcomes were to come out of this trial: data monitors would recommend stopping the trial due to failure, continue with testing because results were inconclusive, or continue and immediately apply for emergency use authorization because the vaccine worked and was safe. Eventually, the…
