Ask a doctor or pharmacist before taking levonorgestrel if you regularly use medication for seizures, tuberculosis, or HIV/AIDS. Reaction will not terminate a pregnancy that has already begun (the fertilized egg has attached to the uterus).
Ask a doctor or pharmacist before taking levonorgestrel if you regularly use medication for seizures, tuberculosis, or HIV/AIDS. Certain medications can make levonorgestrel less effective as an emergency form of contraception.
Reaction is not intended for use as a routine form of birth control and should not be used in this manner. A doctor should confirm that you are not pregnant, and that this medicine has not caused any harmful effects.
If your period is late by 1 week or longer after the expected date, you may be pregnant. Reaction will not terminate pregnancy if the fertilized egg has attached to the uterus.
Because Reaction is supplied as a single tablet in an exact strength, an overdose is unlikely to occur when the levonorgestrel is used as directed. Reaction will not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases --including HIV and AIDS.
Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction: hives ; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor or seek emergency medical help if you have severe pain in your lower stomach or side.
Other drugs may affect levonorgestrel, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Always consult your healthcare provider to ensure the information displayed on this page applies to your personal circumstances.
Review the information below, then practice with the community service and take action project scenarios Reaction and community service projects are different, but both are essential to Girl Scouting.
Community service projects are acts of kindness and important ways to help something or someone right now. They are commonly short-term projects that almost always multiply efforts that are already in place.
Examples include collecting food for an existing food pantry, providing clothing or toiletries to people who have suffered during a disaster, cleaning up a rundown playground, or picking up trash at a park, forest, or beach. Girl Scout Reaction projects address an issue by tackling the factors that cause or contribute to it.
Projects associated with Journeys and the highest awards (the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, and Gold Award) are Reaction projects. Use this table to determine whether an idea is a community service or Reaction project.
Prepare to take action by completing a Journey or, if you’ve already done one, and you’re a Girl Scout Junior, Cadette, Senior, or Ambassador, get started on your Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award, respectively. Reaction and community service projects are different, but both are essential to Girl Scouting.
Review the Girl Scout Reaction Guide for the Think Like a Programmer Journey. Girl Scouts at Home activities have been adapted from existing Girl Scout programming and optimized for use at home during a period of social distancing.
Adapted from Girl Scouts of Western Ohio’s Fast Fundamentals of Community Service vs. Reaction, the Guide to Going Gold and Girl Scout Reaction Guide for the Think Like a Programmer Journey. In a time when technology has become our lifeline, it is more important than ever that we examine the role it plays in our lives and realign it with the interests of people, not profits.
The importance of personal and professional development for current and aspiring leaders can’t be overstated. It’s the secret to separating yourself from the pack, the bridge that carries you toward the goals you have yet to reach.
Now, with the impacts of a global pandemic, civil and political unrest, and economic uncertainty, we are all faced with personal and professional challenges the likes of which many of us have never experienced. If we aren’t adapting and growing, we are essentially dying a slow death.
So, when the inevitable life or business ambush strikes, it’s the leader’s responsibility to take action. Simply put, EI is the capability of individuals to recognize their own emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately.
In this largely virtual world we are all living and working in, the walls of the already existing silos have thickened, straining relationships, the flow of information, and the ability to do basic things like read body language. Now hold on, before you start packing more Zoom meetings into the already jammed schedule, consider what I mean.
Within an appropriate timeframe of already existing meetings, make time to ensure the objectives are clear, concise, measurable and time bound. And most importantly, we must ensure each team member is immensely clear on their role in mission success.
Many teams and employees have had to adapt, which means new activities, new actions, new processes and procedures. Empathy has always been a leadership quality imperative for truly connecting with others, for building meaningful relationships, and for improving the ability to inspire others, enhance engagement, and effectively provide feedback.
Adding in the pressures of social isolation on top of already low levels of engagement (in even well-run organizations), leaders must learn first how to stay motivated, and then coach others in self-motivation. Always seeking transparent feedback and accountability mechanisms they can use to be in a constant state of improvement.
They actively seek mentors and coaches that prepare them not for their existing level of leadership necessity, but for the next. Change leadership is arguably the most challenging burden of command, yet critical for leading in any environment.
Over the past eight months, my firm has been working closely with organizations such as Google, Sales Force, GSK, and the NFL predominantly in the areas of leading and managing remote teams, work-from-home best practices, and building a virtual culture. It’s far more challenging to lead a team through uncertainty when you lack the energy and focus to stay the course.
