But what if you’re writing a “Why us” statement for a school that isn’t your top choice? How do you get excited about that school? How do you fake it?
Tip #1: Don't fake it.
What do I mean? If a school is on your list and you're not excited about it, why is it on your list? Take it off. Or, better yet:
Do your research and get excited about the school. Chances are, you may not be excited about a school because you don't know much about it yet. Try this: think of a school you're not excited about applying to but probably will, and write down on a piece of paper everything you know about it. (Not a ton, eh?) See, here's something you may not have been told.
Finding a school that “fits” you is an active process, not a passive one. That’s one reason I appreciate and am an advocate for the “Why us” essay--you get to (read: have to) research and find out if the school you’re pledging your allegiance to is actually one that you want to pledge your allegiance to. So get researching! (For research resources go here.)
...can improve productivity as well as safety. There are five general techniques for safeguarding machine operation, but all guards must be able to prevent contact, must be secured in place or be otherwise tamper-proof, must create no new hazards, should allow for lubrication with the guard still in place, and must not interfere with the machine operation. Types of safeguarding Several of the types of safeguarding would include: • Guards — these can be fixed, interlocking, adjustable, or selfadjusting. They are a physical barrier to contact. • Devices — these can be presence sensing, pullback, restraint, operational controls, or gates. They limit or prevent access to the hazardous area. • Location or distance — hazards are reduced by locating the machine so that its hazardous areas are not normally accessible. • Automated feeding and ejection methods — these eliminate some of the operator’s exposure to the hazards. • Miscellaneous aids — shields, feeding-tools, holding devices, or awareness barriers also protect operators and people in the area. The best machine operator knows what the machine does, how the operating controls affect the work, and when maintenance and repairs are needed. Operators who understand machine-specific operating instructions contribute to having a more efficient operation. Original content is the copyrighted property of J. J.
