36 Entries for “regulation”

  1. Regulation is a word unfamiliar to me, as a non-English-person, it’s hard for me to translate. Although searhing it’s translation to Dutch I got ‘Regulatie’. It doesn’t differ much from it’s English translation, still I don’t know how to write about it.

  4. Life is full of rules and regulations. But I honestly don’t know what regulation exactly means. Sometimes we get to choose them, and sometimes life imposes them on us.

  5. “…regulation of her emotions”, said the social worker to me. what was she tlking about? i puffed on my cigarette and let her voice tune out so that there was a quietness around me, a bubble, a bubble of disassociating that i had been frequenting since I was a child. “what are your thoughts?” she sked me.
    “I agree,” i said and butted out my cigarette.

  6. The regulation on the entrance to the community was characteristically familiar. All this time later I would have thought it had changed. Who were the people who decided who could enter and who could not? I wanted to know. I wanted to scream for what was wrong about this situation. Yet I knew screaming would get me no where.

  7. Some people think regulations fix problems. That is never true by itself. The effective implementation and maintenance of smart regulations can fix problems. The manipulative implementation or lack of maintenance of regulations can be a far greater threat than the initial problem.

  8. Red tape. Barriers. Or order out of chaos, depending on the regulator. Top grade, state of the art. Controller. Micromanager. Consistency. This is not a very inspiring word.

  9. They told us that regulation wasn’t necessary for the economy to flourish. They chided us about profits and bottom lines and quarterly expectations. I guess they were okay with the children getting poisoned by their own toys laced with lead. Or they didn’t mind our pets choking on their own food. Or they shrugged as norovirus spread like wildfire across restaurant chains. Or they didn’t care that the pristine lakes in our country gradually mutated into toxic sludge.

  10. Everyone hates strict regulations when they cause us inconvenience or delays. We feel like they hold us back and keep us from reaching a greater potential. But everyone wants regulations when they do not want to take responsibility for themselves and their community.

    So would it be a stretch to say that we favor regulation based on our willingness to take responsibility for ourselves and those around us?

  11. I hate regulations. People think we need them but we really don’t. I like freedom. I like to come and go as I please and behave as I feel like. One regulation is necessary though: you need to hate regulations. Regulations. Regulations. Regulation.

  12. This word reminds me of Muse’s psycho for a reason I don’t understand.
    And also their other songs! Why Muse? It’s irrelevant.

  13. The red tape was almost visible between them. He waved his hands in front of his face, trying to break the illusion.

  14. The old regulation has been recheck and it’s been passed again. I don’t know why they would want that, since it’s only benefitial for our enemies; but I have another plan to get out of this hell hole.

    By Bramsy on 03.26.2018

  15. There is regulation in everything. We have regulations for how things can be made, where things can be made, etc. I wonder how hard it is to crate regulations?

    By abbie on 03.26.2018

  16. It’s crazy how they regulate all the products made lacrosse the country. How do they organize and send things to so many places? The mailing system fascinates me and also factories and how much they can make and regulate across the world.

  17. I think that regulation can be useful. Sometimes it can be painful. Sometimes it is used for growth. I think regulation is almost always thought of as political but really I view it in much different context. I see regulation mostly positive and I look at it in the context of self growth.

  18. the regualtion for school dress code is what the kids and staff have to wear to be allowed to stay in the school. if they break the regulation then they won’t be able to keep going there.

  19. Regulation of firearms does not mean gun bans, and that seems to be what the left is after. I really hope I’m wrong… I hope the actual policy-makers begin to enforce the current laws on the books, and punish those responsible for missing the warnings signs that led to seventeen childrens’ deaths..

  20. One of the things about the world is that we always try to control people and their actions. We want to make sure that we are in total control of their being and that they are not an agent of their own making. One of the things that we enjoy as a society is policy regulation. We want to make sure and ensure that people live a life that is tangential to our own. We want to make sure that everything aligns with our own being.

  21. Regulation is when I put something on myself that can cause either great results or cause much confusion. It may also be perceived as a limit or something that brings great hope and help that is the result of healing.

  22. The regulations placed on the American people, should in many cases have a mirror held up, exposing, controlling and minimizing the damage caused by very bad, greedy and powerful entities whom deserve no name

  23. When you start from here, then you don’t have many options. Regulations are strict, all paths from here lead in one direction. If you were already through this barrier, then you can choose where you want to go, now your only choice is to get through this gate, to get through me.

  24. Life is more than just the rules and regulations we set. “I wrote about this word yesterday and didn’t expect the same today. Ugh. It’s such a tough word to write about!” exclaimed the writer in me.

  25. The regulation on the parts that were allowed to be used made no sense. How as a team of people were we suppose to build the product when we had so little time to do so and so little resources? We looked around the table at one another. No words were said, however, the look in each other’s eyes said enough. We all knew it was impossible. It felt like we were set up to fail.

  26. It was a fire regulation that elevators were serviced weekly. Also, the heat in the building was frequently checked to make sure it was regulating properly.

  27. There is a new rule for this school. Don’t worry it won’t be though. All you have to do is kill someone to escape. Simple as that. You have to get away with the murder, of course, but not other strings attached! Kill. Then you graduate! Ain’t it amazing!

    By Simon URL on 03.27.2018

  28. It was all under strict control. What we wore, what we ate, every action of every day was regulated. But it was all for our own good. We would never get a husband on our own and that was the most important thing.

  29. i am in need of it. or maybe i have too many of them. either way, my tentacles are all over the place and i am bleeding ink everywhere. cloudy mist of memories. words surround me and i can’t choose which ones to grab out and shove into my mouth…

  31. definitional define me
    regulation regale me
    the moment often passes in quiet
    unable or unwilling
    to work on the words
    writer’s block block me
    the chains of momentum caress me
    hold me back from crafting
    pushing me towards apathy

  32. I think that regulation can be useful. Sometimes it can be painful. Sometimes it is used for growth. I think regulation is almost always thought of in a political sense or rules, but really, I view it in much different context. I see regulation mostly positive and I look at it in the context of self growth. Another word for self discipline.

  33. “Regulation”

    The idea of order. A routine. Almost in the way that night follows day, a circle that doesn’t come undone. Except, perhaps someone, somewhere, steps out of line in ways the sky can’t. How the moon momentarily jumps beneath the blanket-cover of cloud at sunset and you wonder whether or not the sun has gone.

  34. straight lines
    tiny up
    maintain our standards

    if you have time to lean,
    you have time to clean.

    ironed hair,
    slightly singed,
    stick straight.

    By Katie on 03.27.2018

  35. those thoughts that flow
    without a second’s pause
    seemed wild,
    in this recollection of mine.

    with a breath
    I steadied
    my thoughts
    once again

    By Lynn on 03.27.2018

  36. She leaned over, bracing her arms against the desk, and frowned at the topmost paper through the flocks of dark, off-black hair that fell into her eyes. The news had come in that morning. News was always coming in, but this was different.
