CREATING THE FUTURE WE WANT Have you ever thought about your future? I have thought about it, and I think that my future will be extremely meritorious if I asseverate a ‘Green Earth’. It’s fashionable today to talk about the environment. It seems that politicians, the media and also big companies are realizing that it’s no longer possible to ignore the theme of climate change. The devastating effects of global warming are well documented, including the lack of food and water, destruction of life and the environmental, extermination of some species and the increase in deaths caused by flooding, storms, heat waves and desertification. As in other situations, it is the poorest communities which are the most affected. In order to have a better earth, we must appreciate the 3R’s concept which is reducing, reuse and recycle. It sounds simple but it really works. Get in the habit of incorporating the 3R’s into products we use on a daily basis. The most essential way to reduce waste is cutting back on water and electricity use at home. Besides, reuse can be done by using cloth tote bags when we shop instead of asking for plastic bags. Recycling also keeps materials out of the landfill. Objects that might be considered waste are turned back into raw materials that can be used in the manufacture of other items. Secondly, we could take advantage of the weather .When it is cold, try opening windows instead of running the air conditioning. Do you know that the air conditioner will produce a lot of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) which might damage the ozone layer? This will also save the earth and money on our electric bill. Nice weather is also a great excuse to drive less. Walking helps us to be healthy and is better for the air. Moreover, using water wisely is also a great way. Saving water is crucial because it is a limited resource. A few…...

...many hypotheses, working explanations, of how dinosaurs may have become extinct. The extinction mystery is far from a simple “whodunit.” The same piece of evidence is sometimes subject to multiple interpretations. And, as yet, there is no obvious answer, no piece of evidence that strongly supports only one hypothesis while showing that all others are incorrect. So what do we know about dinosaur extinction, and how do we know it. Evidence: Scientific evidence and observations are the building blocks of hypotheses. At first the same evidence and observations may support different hypotheses. As more evidence becomes available, some hypotheses are proven, others are disproved, and new ones are formed. Hypotheses: A dinosaur extinction hypothesis is a testable statement describing factors that may have played a part in the dinosaur’s extinction and how long the process may have taken. Evidence, observations, and experimentation can serve to support or disprove a hypothesis. Regardless of its acceptance or rejection, through, a good hypothesis provides direction for future scientific study. Several hypotheses will be considered in the following readings: ▪ Continental Drift ▪ Asteroid Impact ▪ Volcanism ▪ Mammal Competition Hypothesis: Continental Drift It is difficult to imagine a process more slow than continental drift. But some scientists say that, slow or not, this moving of the world’s......

Remembering a War We Want to Forget

...Essay – Remembering a War We Want to Forget Many US. Soldiers who took part in the Vietnam War experienced that the conflict divided The United States of America. There were two groups, those who went to Vietnam and those who didn’t. It all depended on social class, many men who travelled to Vietnam to fight were the majority of working-class America. Their average age was less than twenty and most of them didn’t even graduate. These young men were not soldiers, but ordinary people. Because they were less privileged than the educated kids, they fought and died in Vietnam, opposite the well educated. For many stationed the war was without any purpose; “ There were no dramatic pushes to the Rhine, no larger missions, nothing to feel a part of” – William Broyles, Veteran from the Vietnam War. Broyles describe how the war seemed meaningless for the soldiers, how 365 days passed with a lot of suffering and lost, how you were leaving when your days were up, but the war went on. The frustrated feeling of powerlessness when new soldiers arrived and were forced to go through the same destructive experience. In this living hell the only thing the soldiers could count on was each other. The Vietnam combat veterans drew this lesson “You are alone, no one else shares your experience or cares about it – no one except your ‘buddies’. Only they matter”. These men’s identities were taking from them when they joined the army, they were putted in a uniform, ordered to remove their hair and...

Creating a Business

...Urban Outfitters Continuing Case Study: Creating a Business Introduction to Business Prof. Maria Gambuzza Urban Outfitters Continuing Case Study: Creating a Business 1. Identify at least three challenges when setting up a business. Explain why they are challenges. One of the challenges when setting up a business is about finance. First and foremost, business needs to determine the startup cost. To be able to do that, they must identify all the expenses their business will encounter during their startup phase. The expenses will be either one-time cost, such as business license fee or going costs, such as leasing cost, supplies, etc… After that phase, business needs to find their capital sources. If they don’t have their own savings or can’t borrow money from friends or family, their option will be getting loan from banks. In the early state of the business, their inexperience “in financial matters often prompts banks to deny loan requests”. (1) Business owner needs to well prepare and organize to prove to their lender that they are the bank’s good investment. The other challenge is experience and skills. Many people are first time business owners who are inexperience and lack of skills. Some start a business because they see people doing successfully and think they can do the same. However, running a business smoothly and successfully requires owners to have skills and experience in all perspective of the business, including accounting, marketing, etc. The......

The Future

...as a whole but we somehow keep missing the plot. The people may be different, the clothes, some ideals and the technology but the cycle seems to be the same and civilizations rise through the subjugation of another and perpetuate the cycle of war, hate, famine, greed and division of man. This piece was my interpretation of our present dilemma our SODOM AND GOMORRAH, “which is not going to be destroyed by fire and brim stone”, our possible destruction is very different. Our era in this drama seems to be so dire and grave to us, yet if we were to possibly use wisdom, we may miss the pitfall all together. The wisdom of learning from the past, of individually taking control, making a change and not relying on the powers that be, is one strategy. “Makes me wonder if all the wisdom was given to King Solomon and none left for us”, but even he faltered. So then it begs to say is there any purpose, reason or hope. Do we just literally exist and go round on a cog wheel of time. Without straying too far from the point, there is allot of room left for speculation as to whether some of these conspiracy ideas are true. Were we just put here and are aimlessly wondering this planet. While I was doing this piece it brought up allot of question about the past, future, who we are, why we are here? How our world/universe came to be? Is this all about balance and not right or wrong? TECHNOLOGY seems to be our vice, we are moving very rapidly towards an I.ROBOT society where we become so......

The Future

...The Future -Social and cultural changes in human values and norms of behavior in businesses I think that first of all what we call a future could be happening in the next coming years or decades, since new types of technology and crazy touch-screen or laser objects are being used every day in our daily lives, even worst by children about 5 or 6 years old. Technology is not the only thing that has changed and is changing every day, something that we should really worry about is our own human values. This is our own social and cultural values, everything we have had since the moment we are born and also our norms in daily business that have been established year and years ago based on errors and important historical events, and by important business man and multinationals that had gave us the opportunity to experience what we are experiencing today. To answer the million dollar question we need to break it down into two separate parts; social and cultural changes; and norms of behavior in the world of business. The question is how these two factors will change in the future and how businesses will be done by that time. First, we need to determine our social and cultural values and those can be referred or seen as our ethical actions, and are our base of integrity in society. The way we think, act, behave, from a greeting to an interview or negotiation, these values or personal beliefs are definitely changing and even becoming extinct. Our values is the most fundamental......

Does the Media Influence Whether We Want It or Not

...Does the Media influence whether we want it or not Michel Johnson Introduction to Mass Communications 14930 MCM 101  April 24, 2013 Does the Media influence us whether we want it or not? This question must be pondered, because the mass media has never been more prevalent in our everyday lives. Television, radio, internet and so many more venues, media is everywhere, from the time we wake to the time we sleep and in some cases while we sleep. How has the constant bombardment of media affected society? Whether we are speaking of youth or adults, we have to consider whether the mass media is truly influencing or lives. Many concerns have been growing in the area of behavior; seems as though people are becoming more aggressive, particularly when it comes to lascivious and violent actions. It has become a daily occurrence hearing of inappropriate actions of children and adults in the homes, schools, and communities. People appear to less caring of others and more focused on self centered interest. Why is this? I believe it’s because of what we see on a regular basis. The mass media is so consistent and prevalent in our lives, and at times people cannot distinguish from fantasy. We as a society have been brain washed, self esteem and values are truly affected. Society has embraced television, movies, and music as way of thinking, incorporating it in their everyday lives. Young and old want to look and like their favorite stars. Not realizing that they are not looking at......

Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial Organization: In (Metaprofiling, 2013)1 study about the entrepreneurial organizations they differentiated between two concepts, entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial organization. Successful entrepreneurs are opportunists who, through their creativity, drive and vision, create economic or social value. They challenge conventional wisdom by practicing disruptive innovation — innovation that creates new markets through the application of a different set of values. They change the rules of the game by questioning the status quo and upping the stakes. It follows that an entrepreneurial organization can be defined as: An organization that places innovation and opportunism at its heart in order to produce economic or social value. However, for many organizations, this is only a brief moment in their evolution. And according to (Rodrigues et al,2003)2 entrepreneurial organizations, in fact, reflect the basic characteristics of its leadership.

Are We Healthier That Our Future Generations?

...For one to judge the concept of superlative degrees of health and compare it to previous and forthcoming generations, it is essential to understand how we define health, measure it and understand its determinants. As it turns out, defining health is not as straight forward as it appears though we always have the utopian health definition of WHO to fall back upon which defines health as ‘not merely absence of disease but an overall of state of physical, mental, and social well-being’ (WHO 1950). Measures of health may vary with time and space but many health specialists are of the opinion that levels of disease in a population (morbidity) and frequency of death at a particular age (mortality) represent vital and gross health statistics (McKeown 1978). Basically, improved health is reflected in decline of mortality. Determinants of health can be sought in various health theories or models. One of these is ‘life course model’ which offers an interdisciplinary framework for guiding research on health, human development and aging. Life course epidemiology is defined as the study of long term effects on later health or disease risk of physical or social exposures during gestation, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and later adult life (Kuh and Hardy 2002). The aim is to elucidate biological, behavioural, and psychosocial determinants of health that operate across an individual’s life course, or across generations, to influence the development of disease risk. Combining the......

Can We Live Where We Want

...Kye Karim Composition reading II Essay 3 3rd November 2014 Jeremy Rick Are we born with the right to live where we want? The United Kingdom of Great Briatain, is a group of countries that like to think they are independent. Despite this, the fact is they are merged to a much bigger picture of the European Union. The inclusion of the UK has drawn many positives over the years with the economy, easy holidays, simpler migration and more than anything help from the other large nations in the EU. People from areas outside of the EU like the USA or Asia, would have to get a visa issued to their passport before they can even have a holiday. For people holding passports for countries inside the EU, they can move freely with not much problem and get support in the countries they are travelling to. This was has been ok for many years but in recent times the joining of several smaller countries to the EU has brought an unprecedented influx of immigration to the shore of the UK that has quickly escalated into a national crisis. This is something that has only resulted in only minute positives, with the country now struggling to cope with the demand for jobs and housing causing a lot of anger amongst the people. The UK is made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, which are all considered highly developed courtiers in there own right. The region boasts structured democracies that has controlled and helped the area grow for decades to be one of the most......

Should We or Should We Not Drill?

...Drill 2 We need to get off our dependency of foreign oil. There are two major suggestions on how to solve this issue. One is to follow President Barack Obama’s plan. He proposes that the best way for us to get off of oil dependency is to create alternate energy resources. This would offer more jobs for the people. Most of the Republicans on the other hand, want to do more drilling in the United States and more offshore drilling. They say that having more oil companies will create more jobs. Who is right or wrong? We need to look at the situation for a long term fix. Drilling more yes will offer more jobs but who is to say for how long? Also, as more fossil fuels are being burned, we are polluting our air and our country. Offshore drilling is dangerous to the environment, it is dangerous to the people, and it is not a long term solution to freeing our dependency of foreign oil. When drilling off shore you run into the chance of having another oil spill like we had last year. There were millions of sea life animals that were affected by this event. Fishing companies were unable to fish in those areas because of the oil contaminate in the fish. How many lives are we going to put in danger by drilling offshore? If there is another accident like last year can be we really be sure that it will be stopped right away or will it take up to three months to get through the red tape from another country to fix it? By drilling and mining for fossil fuels, we are......

The Future

Thus it becomes a shield against the vicious effects of globalization. Of course, all of these have as a result the increase of the effectiveness of the international economic activities. 2) The introduction of "thresholds" of risk: Country risk is a useful criterion for the foreign affairs when establishing the optimal level of the investment, for the credit or for purchase of financial products, but the main disadvantage is represented by the relativity of the score assigned to quantitative factors and particularly to the political environment. This is because future developments are expected and the anticipation accuracy depends on access to information sources, relevance of data used and the level of training of those involved. 3) Rating is used in setting prices for external loans and for speculative spreads titles. Because it acts as a ceiling on the corporate rating, indirectly it influences the ability of financing by external loans and implicitly, their profitability. Thus, access to international financial markets is granted only to good rated entities (national governments or firms), whereas for others, the cost of indebtedness is very high. Although metaphorical, highly suggestive seems in this sense the words "bankers give you the umbrella when the sun comes out and they take it......

We Want More Guitars: a Critical Analysis of a Global Problem

...Every company has their own theory and goals behind what they overall want to see or become. This paper is written with intent to help better understand a real life situation that took place at Guitarras Dominquez. When a company first opens their doors for business, they use high end material to show the essence of quality in their product which will allow for growth in their customer base. Do you ever wonder how a company gets far in doing so? Intention from the start of a business does not include cutting corners and saving money, but eventually with budget cuts and business plans they tend to become necessary. When we take a look at the case study about Guitarras Dominquez, we take a close look at what can possibly happen to a globalized company. There are many instances where the management team deals with issues that need to be well thought out and planned and on the contrary there are sometimes issues that need immediate action and answers. Having time and being able to take it in the sense of a business decision can allow for well thought our decisions but having to act spontaneously and fast does not allow for thinking things through and can cause chaos and destruction. The case study of Guitarras Dominquez allows the reader to learn from the company and all the issues it faced and view how it was handled to be able to critique if it was taken care of in the right matter or if one would have done it differently. I am also able to have different outlooks......

Creating Disciples

...“Creating Disciples: The Transformation of Employees into Trainers” By Harry J. Martin* and Mary W. Hrivnak Elena Rozkov Human Resources Training and Development April 12, 2012 MGMT 3060 CREATING DISCIPLES: THE TRANSFORMATION OF EMPLOYEES INTO TRAINERS 1 After our class discussion and reading article “Creating Disciples” again, I have a better understanding of the process and importance of the training program, which is designed for developing and supporting employee trainers, but I still cannot completely agree with the authors’ model. Martin & Hrivnak (pg.614) are talking about turning novice employees into trainers if this employee feels strongly enough about the idea to volunteer to teach other employees. But they are not talking about rewards, recognitions or promotions. According to Martin & Hrivnak (2009) an organization has to follow the “why” and “how” approach, and needs to understand the benefits and disadvantages between hiring an insider or an outsider to train others. Deciding which trainer to choose depends on the objectives of the program and how valuable they will be for an organization. By turning employees into disciple trainers will benefit the company in many ways. The insiders are cost-effective for the company. Also, training process can be easier because trainers will be accepted by their peers, which will lead to a comfortable work environment. Trainers can relate to other employees because they are already in......

Disregarding Character Education: Are We Creating the Next Menace to Society?

...Running head: CREATING THE NEXT MENACE TO SOCIETY Disregarding Character Education: Are We Creating the Next Menace to Society? Amy M. Parsons Rasmussen Grand Canyon University: EDU-310 October 1, 2011 President Theodore Roosevelt is credited with saying, “To educate a man in the mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.” Historically moral or character education happened primarily in the home with reinforcement from the church and schools. Character education in schools appears to have fallen by the wayside due largely in attempts to respect parental rights and emphasis being solely on the success on state mandated testing. Some question whether teachers today should even be involved in the character education of their students. However, to share only knowledge without any context or structure of how one should use it is not only a disservice to the student but to society as a whole. Some would argue that by taking religion out of our public schools we have also taken away the foundation for any sort of morality or character lessons. The separation of church and state is often used to imply that religion has no place in any government sponsored endeavor. The separation of church and state is not to abolish religion or morals in schools. It is simply there to make sure no one is forced to participate or be a part of a religious celebration or practice that is not of their choosing. In an effort to protect every individual’s freedom of......
