    million from his winnings and
    Woods has won fourteen professional major golf championships, which has made him the second highest of any male golf player. Tiger Woods has one 68 PGA Tour events, third all time. He has more career major wins and career PGA Tour wins than any other active golfer. Even though Woods is one of the youngest golfers to play he has achieve the career Grand Slam, and also the youngest and fastest to win 50 tournaments on tour.
    Tiger Woods has got his power from mostly gofling and his sponsers. Woods first started to play golf at the age of two years old, he was pretty much born with this ability to play golf with such skill and talent. He shows power during golfing tournaments in the experience of his play. You can see this by how smooth and controled his is when he is playing golf. Woods also uses other types of power like social you see this when he does advertisments about "gillette 3" and his other sponsers. I think that when Tiger Woods is sceen on TV promoting a product this gives both Woods and his spronser more power because it shows that Woods has confidence in himself to promote products. I also think that the product would sell beter becasue it has a famous golf player promoting the band and more people would buy it because Tiger Woods is sceen with the brand and when Woods speaks people listen. Woods is also seen when you see him talk to the press and media about his golfing experiences this is a type of power he uses which is social. When he is speaking to the press about his golfing experiences he talks with such power and confidence which grabs people attention becasue he is so calm infont of all the cameras.

    POWER TRANSCRIPT
    conflict between a teacher and a principal
    David: Hi.
    Claire: How’s it going?
    David: Yeah alright but I have got something to ask you.
    Claire: Yeah sure what is it?
    David: I was just going over the sports account and I found that there was some money missing, it was about $1500.
    Claire: Really I didn’t know that.
    David: Are you sure about that because everything has to go through you.
    Claire: Well everyone makes mistakes; I could go through the records again.
    David: You want to make sure that you double check the records; I have students that are missing out on volley ball lessons which we need for our big tournament.
    David: Wait a minute when did you get that laptop I never received one.
    Claire: It was a birthday present that I got last week.
    David: I thought your birthday is in 2 months time.
    Claire: Stupid me what was I thinking.
    David: How much did that laptop cost, like $1500?
    Claire: Why would you think that, I have been saving for a new laptop for a while now?
    David: So your saying that around the time the $1500 went missing you decided to buy a new laptop, that’s a bit of a coincidence isn’t it?
    David: I’m pretty sure I know were that money went you spent it on your laptop didn’t you, don’t try and fool me I know what you did.
    Claire: How can you prove this there is no clear evidence?
    David: Oh yes there is check the records.
    Claire: What records are you talking about; sometimes they just disappear and get lost.
    David: No. Why are you doing this to your own school, I don’t understand your actions to rob children from there physical activity.
    Claire: I do what I want to as I please.
    David: If you don’t give me the money that I need for the volley ball lessons I will report you to the education department and we’ll see who’s laughing then. Did you really think you would get away with this and no one would notice?
    Claire: I’m the principal of this school and have been for many years, you are just a person who’s just been fully qualified to become a teacher. Who do you think they are going to believe me or you I have been a principal for 30 years and I’m a well respected member in the education community and if you tell your job will be on the line.
    David: Don’t think I will forget this I will catch you one day be prepared.
    Claire: I have had enough leave my office please.

    Good research - but watch the sentencing!
    Nino
    I am impressed with the effort yoou have made with your research - and the way you have given your topic a considerable degree of thought.
    I do think your sentencing lets you down. Your good ideas are not always as clearly expressed as they could be.

    The guy who I have been resarching for the past few weeks is a very powerful figure in the world, he has many types of power. Normally to have power; you may normally need to know some one that is a currently powerful person (be born into a socialite family which who normally are wealthy) which can make life either easier for you, but sometimes with the wrong person it can make your life harder. But Barack Obama is different, how did he become the first African American president of the USA without having little to no power since he was born? He was born with the power of knowledge, thats how. He was born in the small town of Honolulu, Hawaii, his parents weren’t the most powerful people on the block. Barack made his way to the top himself, he had no economic power, he had no social power but he did have the knowledge power, (which is shown in his inauguration speech, which he talked for 20 mins without palm cards to help him, only basic notes) that is quite some power. Sometimes the power's that he has, it may overlap each other an example of this is: how Obama has the political and social power to be involved in such meetings like the G8 meeting.
    His work ethic has rewarded Obama with power, in fact many types of power:
    ...
    world. Also that, America is
    ...
    economy and (developing??) a new
    He has social power, he communicates with other powerful people and he makes decisions which affect his people and his country like as mentioned above how the USA are apart of the G8. He must communicate with his fellow politicans how to improve their country, and at times he may interact with people from his country to see what is wrong and to see if there is a way to solve the problem.
    He has economic power (he has a lot of money and he deals with the American economy). He made an important bill which was called the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The economic stimulus package was valued at $787 billion which was aimed to help the economy to recover from the worldwide recession. The $787 billion stimulus package will used for health care, infrastructure, education, various tax breaks and incentives and direct assistance to individuals and the money will be given out, over a few years.
