Article Review 1

The article that I read was named 5 Things the Best Managers Do and Don’t. It was published on the Forbes website. I think the one big thing that caught my attention in the article is the part about how managers need to be able to question their own management and be open to and consider reasonable suggestions from their employees. This caught my eye because of the fact that most all of the managers that I have worked under in the past have not been very open to suggestions or ideas other than their own. If a manager isn’t open to suggestions, comments, and concerns from the people that you are managing then how can the manager effectively motivate and improve efficiency? Open communication is an absolutely necessary component in effective management in my opinion. On the other hand a manager needs to be confident in his or her ability’s to manage and make decisions. If a manager takes every single suggestion and does everything that an employee says they should then what’s the job of the manager? Employees have many good suggestions, but that’s what they are, suggestions and comments, not orders. The manager needs to be open to and positively receive suggestions and concerns from employees but at the same time needs to be confident in his or her ability to manage and needs to be able to make determinations based upon company procedure, legal regulations, and many other factors that the employee may not be aware…...

...are presented with so much new information. While it's important to be an active listener, don't be afraid to bring up any questions or concerns - but do so tactfully, without interrupting the entire orientation process. How to Prepare for a Job Orientation Although you shouldn't stress too much over a new job orientation - after all, your employer is well aware that it's your very first day - there are steps you can take to ensure the process goes smoothly. Here are tips for attending a new job orientation: Call ahead. It doesn't hurt to give your employer a ring a few days before the orientation and ask if there's anything specific you need to bring or anything you need to know in advance. For example, some companies request that you review the employee handbook prior to your orientation - and if you're given any materials in advance, be sure to take them seriously. That way, there won't be any surprises on orientation day. Dress appropriately. Unless you were given detailed dressing instructions, look professional and polished, and dress at the same level of formality that you did at your interview. If you expect to be on your feet the entire day, make it a priority to wear comfortable shoes. If you're not sure what to wear, ask the person who scheduled your orientation for advice. Arrive early. Remember you need to account for time to find the location, park, and check in with your supervisor. The last thing you want to be is late on the first day! Bring a notebook......

When John von Neumann turned his interest to computers, he was one of the leading mathematicians of his time. In the 1940s, he helped design two of the first stored-program digital electronic computers. He authored reports explaining the functional organization of modern computers for the first time, thereby influencing their construction worldwide (von Neumann, 1945; Burks et al., 1946). In the first of these reports, von Neumann described the computer as analogous to a brain, with an input “organ” (analogous to sensory neurons), a memory, an arithmetical and a logical “organ” (analogous to associative neurons), and an output “organ” (analogous to motor neurons). His experience with computers convinced him that brains and computers, both having to do with the processing of information, should be studied by a new discipline–automata theory. In fact, according to von Neumann, automata theory would cover not only......

...Chapter 1 Auditing and Internal Control Review Questions 1. What is the purpose of an IT audit? Response: The purpose of an IT audit is to provide an independent assessment of some technology- or systems-related object, such as proper IT implementation, or controls over computer resources. Because most modern accounting information systems use IT, IT plays a significant role in a financial (external audit), where the purpose is to determine the fairness and accuracy of the financial statements. 2. Discuss the concept of independence within the context of a financial audit. How is independence different for internal auditors? Response: The auditor cannot be an advocate of the client, but must independently attest to whether GAAP and other appropriate guidelines have been adequately met. Independence for internal auditors is different because they are employed by the organization, and cannot be as independent as the external auditor. Thus internal auditors must use professional judgment and independent minds in performing IA activities. 3. What are the conceptual phases of an audit? How do they differ between general auditing and IT auditing? Response: The three conceptual phases of auditing are: i. Audit planning, ii. Tests of internal controls, and iii. ......

...Review Of the Movie “The Help” “The Help”, it is a movie based on the book which contain testimonials on the experiences of African-American maids. I remembered I read the book before I watched the movie. The thing I know about the book, it was written and published by a white woman and it was told by the black women who were maids in the 1960s. It gave me some assumptions to go with. Before I start, everything that I will bring up are tightly about the movie and the book. It is like a little summary however the reviews I read are really good concerning the movie and the book. The movie was produced in a small town Jackson, Mississippi. Racial tension was so high at that time. The Black women worked not only as maids in that town, but they practically raised white people’s children too. So far, they were seen as “HELP” and were treated inappropriately and poorly. Skeeter, is a young woman who were living in that town. She gets the idea to write a story about these women who were maids, because of her good experience with the black woman who raised her and took really good care of her when her mother was not around. I really liked and enjoyed this movie. It got my attention and made me cry couple of times while watching some parts. What was so interesting and good about this movie? At the beginning of the movie, the acting was excellent. Viola Davis who played a maid named (Aibileen), she is an amazing woman who was one of the central characters in the......

...Rolling tides along a sandy beach, cloud covered green mountain tops, or exotic smells and sounds emitted from crowded streets of a distant place. These can be memories of past vacations, or dreams of future ones. Either way we all have the desire to be free to roam where ever our hearts are most content, free of the everyday stresses of our hectic work life. But more often than not, these dreams are left unfulfilled because, as Americans, we are often one of the most overworked populations on this earth. We skip vacations for a multitude of reasons. The financial burden of taking time off can prevent us from enjoying a relaxing week away, or we may feel that taking time off from our jobs may be viewed as lazy, or that we are not invested in the organization for whom we are employed. But the simple truth is, when we do not allow for time off to rejuvenate our minds and bodies, we not only compromise our own health, but in fact, we compromise the health and wellbeing of the company we work for as well. Attitudes of employers are shifting about quality time off for their employees. They seem to be grasping the reality that overworked employees translates to overall increased productions costs. When employees are overworked and have not taken time off for themselves they can become less efficient, less able to deliver quality of care and/or work, or can make potential mistakes that can have devastating consequences. All potentially costing the organization a great......

...Review on the hunger games It's a true shot to the heart! “The Hunger Games,” the highly anticipated movie based on the best-selling teen novel, is as tough-spirited as fans would hope for — and exciting and thought-provoking in a way few adventure dramas ever are. It’s also a far more serious movie than the marketing, and mainstream mania, have led us to believe. It’s better and scarier than its source book, and aims an angry eye at our bloodthirsty, watch-anything-and-cheer culture.And there’s also pro-rebellion, anti-1% sentiment coursing through its blood. While the dark allegory within Suzanne Collins’ 2008 publishing phenomenon remains intact, it’s anchored by a remarkable performance from  Lawrence, as everyone now knows, plays Katniss Everdeen, a 16-year-old in a future North America reconfigured after war and eco-disaster into “Panem.” A dozen impoverished “districts,” controlled by the amoral Capitol, make up the ex-U.S. Katniss’ family lives in District 12, formerly Appalachia. She and her friend Gale (Liam Hemsworth) hunt for squirrels to survive — her preferred weapon is a bow and arrow — while hoping not to hear their names called in the Hunger Games, in which a young girl and boy from each district are picked by lottery for an annual, televised death match — killing each other for the amusement of the wealthy and powerful.The Games are a way of punishing constituents for a nearly century-old uprising, though haunting propaganda films paint them as......

...Cory Miller P.O.M 11/6/14 Article Review On Tuesday, November 4th 2014 the states of Oregon and Alaska, along with Washington D.C., followed in the steps of Colorado and Washington by legalizing the use of recreational marijuana. However due to lack of support of the U.S. Congress, any of the new recreational marijuana shops may not be able to survive because of an outdated tax code called 280E from the 1980’s or what they refer to as “ the drug-war era” Making the tax rate for these businesses 50% or more. Under this tax code businesses selling marijuana cannot deduct all of their regular business expenses which therefore makes it so the federal government makes more money from the sale of marijuana than the shops themselves. Many believe this is in attempt to shut marijuana stores down financially since it failed to do so legally. In the state of Colorado alone tax revenue from the sales of marijuana has been steadily rising and is currently bringing in roughly 7.5 million dollars monthly proving that this is a reliable sustainable business. NCIA urged members of Congress last week to change 280E and support a bill that would allow marijuana businesses to take standard business deductions. But the IRS says it will not allowing these deductions saying “Any changes to 280E would require Congress to amend either the Internal Revenue Code or the Controlled Substances Act” Question: Do you think that these businesses have a chance of being sustainable and lasting even......

...Understanding your company review process Your company determines the review process to use to meet its business goals. A review process can be anything from an annual performance appraisal to an all-encompassing performance management policy that includes development, compensation, and succession plans. No matter what process your company uses, all review processes have a lifecycle. A lifecycle is the sum of all the phases that make up your company’s review process from start to finish. Typically, one phase flows into another until the process is complete. For example, a general lifecycle might include four main phases that flow as follows: ◾1 : The initial Planning Phase at the beginning of the fiscal year that allows a manager and employee to determine what content to include in the performance appraisal form. ◾2 : Followed in a few months by a Progress Check Phase where the manager and the employee meet to touch-base on their progress to date. ◾3 : Followed in another few months by the Assessment Phase, in which the manager and employee use the appraisal form to evaluate the employee based on the exhibited accomplishments of the year. ◾ 4 : Followed by the final Analysis Phase, in which the manager determines the reward and compensation based on data gathered during the Assessment Phase. How SuccessFactors fits into your company review process SuccessFactors is designed to work with your company's review process, with the review process......

...or approach they used could have been improved upon. You may also find such comments in sections entitled ’Future research’. You can quickly identify empirical studies by scanning the contents of papers to see if they have sections on ‘research methods’, ‘research design’ or ‘findings’. Empirical papers frequently also have a section dealing with ‘the literature’ or called ‘literature survey’ in which the author(s) discuss existing published treatments of the subject they are writing about. In the process, many authors take the opportunity to highlight the deficiencies of the existing treatments. Some publications consist of reviews or comparisons of other papers. These typically include the words ‘Meta-survey’, ‘Meta-review’ or ‘Meta-analysis’ in their title or abstract, and frequently include critical assessments of the papers they review or survey. Finally, some papers helpfully include the word ‘critique’ in their title. Illustrative Examples of critical comments The extracts shown below were taken from a mixture of student assignments and published papers. This is not an exhaustive list, merely a sample of the many different ways one can go about critically assessing published work. You should also note that the examples were not selected for the quality of their written English. I am not recommending or endorsing any particular writing style or format by quoting these examples. I would like you simply to focus on the various methods of constructing......

Artical Review Cold Rolling

...Cold Rolling Jeffry S. Asher DT1410 Unit 4 Assignment 2 ITT Technical Institute January 18, 2016 Cold rolling is a metal forming process in which the shape and the structure of steel are altered through drawing, extruding, hammering, pressing, rolling, spinning, and stretching at temperatures below the steel's recrystallization point, usually room temperature. These processes result in changes to the metal's composition which permanently increases its hardness and tensile strength, and improve the surface finish, but decrease ductility and impact resistance. After hot rolling, many steel products undergo a further processing in the cold state. This stage of processing may not necessarily alter the shape of the steel, but it does reduce its thickness and significantly improve its performance characteristics. Hot rolled coil is commonly known as cold rolled, also known as cold reduced. Cold rolling is a process by which the sheet metal or strip stock is introduced between rollers and then compressed and squeezed. The amount of strain introduced determines the hardness and other material properties of the finished product. The advantages of cold rolling are good dimensional accuracy and surface finish. Cold rolled sheet can be produced in various conditions such as skin-rolled, quarter hard, half hard, full hard depending on how much cold work has been performed. This cold working hardness is often called temper, although this has nothing to do with heat......

...Order Code RS22814 February 21, 2008 FDA Fast Track and Priority Review Programs Susan Thaul Specialist in Drug Safety and Effectiveness Domestic Social Policy Division Summary By statutory requirements and by regulation, guidance, and practice, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) works with several overlapping yet distinct programs to get to market quickly new drug and biological products that address unmet needs. FDA most frequently uses three mechanisms for that purpose: Accelerated Approval, Fast Track, and Priority Review. The first two affect the development process before a sponsor submits a marketing application. Accelerated Approval allows surrogate endpoints in trials to demonstrate effectiveness and is relevant in fewer situations than the others. The Fast Track program encourages a sponsor to consult with FDA while developing a product. Unlike the others, Priority Review involves no discussions of study design or procedure; it relates only to an application’s place in the review queue. Analysis of total approval time for approved applications under the Fast Track and Priority Review programs shows that for seven of the past nine years, Fast Track products have shorter median approval times than do all those applications assigned to Priority Review. It takes an average of 15 years from the moment a manufacturer first approaches the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with an idea for a new drug to its final approval for marketing.1......

...FILM REVIEW 'THE YOUNG VICTORIA' «THE YOUNG VICTORIA» is a historical drama about the first few years of the Queen Victoria’s long reign in England during the 1800s, including her relationship with the object of her affection, her husband Prince Albert of Germany. The film is exciting. If you like this sort of film- you will not be sorry you saw it. Director Jean-Marc Vallee won several awards for his last film C.R.A.Z.Y., but The Young Victoria is probably enough to get him into the mainstream. His work with cinematographer Hagen Bogdanski (who worked on The Lives Of Others) is very good. There are a number of excellent performances: Jim Broadbent as the jovial and jaded King William; Jeanette Hain as the Baroness Lehzen, Victoria's former governess and confidante; Paul Bettany as Victoria's first Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, and Michael Maloney as his successor Sir John Peel are also very good. Despite her youth, Victoria (Emily Blunt) has become increasingly aware of the critical position she holds. As the only legitimate offspring to be produced from three aging brothers entitled to the British throne, she stands next in line to wear the crown. Nor is she blind to the ambitious intentions of the people around her especially her mother, The Duchess of Kent (Miranda Richardson), and her advisor Sir John Conroy (Mark Strong). With the present monarch’s health failing, the Duchess and her right-hand-man are putting pressure on the......
