Case Study – Crossing Cultural Lines
Ricardo Casas

The ethical parts of any job can have major impacts on all different employees and business owners. When doing business with a company that is set up in a Middle East country, a company that is based in the United might face many conflicting customs and cultural influences. It is crucial that business owners handle these types if situation in a delicate way to avoid causing offense to either their employers or their potential customers. If handled incorrectly or carelessly the business may experience loss of customers or many of their employees will complain about the lack of compassion from their employers. If an employer does have compassion towards the ethical issues then they will face then they must look at both sides of the issue and will often have to decide what can and can’t be done when sending an employee overseas, or even if they should send a certain employee at all. As an example of sending a woman to a country overseas to an area where woman do not have much independence, an employer must carefully analyze the different situations that might occur if he sends that employee as well as the situations that might occur if he doesn’t send the employee.

The situation at hand is one that is faced by many businesses in the Unites States today as they do business with countries with little to no equal rights laws in affect. When faced with the option of sending a tour of employees, which include well qualified woman, to a country that has little respect towards woman an employer has to consider the consequences of his choices. If he sends his woman employees to the man dominated country he must think about the how his employee will feel and how willing she is to adapt to the new environment. He must also consider alternate choices for his employees that will not stop her career from taking…...

Innovative Npo Idea & Business Plan

... INTRUDUCTION We have a good number of various types of disabled people in our society. If they are properly trained, they can substantially contribute instead of becoming burden to others. In developed and developing countries, Government takes the responsibility for training and rehabilitating these people. In Bangladesh, our Government has also taken many measures of this kind but those are not enough. To multiply the effort, like many other countries, there are some organizations established and run by the parents and guardians of disabled people. Autism is a kind of disability usually identified in children at the age between 18 months to 3 years. The affected children suffer from mainly 3 difficulties. These are: Verbal or non verbal communication, Impaired social inter-action and limited activities/interest with rigidity in thinking and repetitive behaviour. These children may improve and live a close to normal life if appropriate intervention and proper training is imparted in time. Though we have many organizations in Bangladesh working with various fields of disability but there is hardly any quality institute developed exclusively for the autistic children. The problem further aggravated with the unavailability of any training centre to train trainers or teachers to work with autistic children. Similarly, there is no facility available for the training or motivation of parents or caregivers of autistic children. We neither have any centre for caring a......

Laser Communication

...line-of-sight conditions between each unit, but they eliminate the need for securing right of ways, buried cable installations and no government licensing is necessary. Free space laser communications systems can be quickly deployed since they are small and do not need any radio interference calculations. Additionally, no spectrum fees have to be paid. This paper includes analysis, optimization, design and system level development of signal transformation between satellites or any two sources. Which work similarly to fibre optic links, except the beam is transmitted through free space. The carrier used for the transmission signal is typically generated by a laser diode. Two parallel beams are needed, one for transmission and one for reception. INTRUDUCTION: Laser Communication is one of the emerging areas of wireless communication system. Due to its low noise ratio makes its one of the well suited communication medium for exchange of information. Currently laser commutation is adopted in satellite communication for space research activities and due to its efficiency on low noise ratio, inexpensive, low power and its flexibility and its resistance to the radio interferences makes laser communication as one of research area in wireless communication. In this process, this paper comprises the one such application of laser communication for information exchange between any two devices. In Laser Communication the transmitter and receiver must require a line-of-sight conditions......

...THE INSTITUTE OF FINANCE MANAGEMENT [pic] INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT Course Name: MSC. FINANCE AND INVESTMENT (MFI) Module Name: Accounting for Decision Making and Control Module Code: AF 09101 INTRUDUCTION OF THE BUDGETTING Budget is a combinations of company activities within which a company coordinate to a common plan for future period. The budget is not something that originates 'from nothing' each 'year - it is developed within the context of ongoing business and is ruled by previous decisions that have been taken within the long-term planning process. When activities are initially approved for inclusion in the long-term plan, they are based on uncertain estimates that are projected for several years. These proposals must be reviewed and revised in the light of more recent information. This review and revision process frequently takes place as part of the annual budgeting process, and it may result in important decisions being taken on possible activity adjustments within the current budget period. The budgeting process cannot therefore be viewed as being purely concerned with the current year - it must be considered as an integrated part of the long-term planning process. The conventional approach is that once a year the manager of each budget centre prepares a detailed budget for one year. For control purposes, the budget is divided into either 12 monthly or 13 four-weekly periods. The preparation of budgets on an annual basis has......

Cs Case Study

...NORTHWEST SAMAR STATE UNIVERSITY Graduate School and Training Academy Calbayog City Course: Master of Science in Information Technology Subject: Client Server Computing Professor: Mr. Donald M. Patimo, MPM Student: Riva A. Gatongay CASE STUDIES IN THIN CLIENT ACCEPTANCE The challenge facing the acceptance of Thin Clients is a combination of architectural design and integration strategy rather than a purely technical issue, and a careful selection of services to be offered over Thin Clients is essential to their acceptance. I. INTRUDUCTION It is generally accepted that in 1993 Tim Negris coined the phrase “Thin Client” in response to Larry Ellison’s request to differentiate the server centric model of Oracle from the desktop centric model prevalent at the time. Since then the technology has evolved from a concept to a reality with the introduction of a variety of hardware devices, network protocols and server centric virtualized environments. The Thin Client model offers users the ability to access centralized resources using full graphical desktops from remotely located, low cost, stateless devices. While there is sufficient literature in support of Thin Clients and their deployment, the strategies employed are not often well documented. To demonstrate the critical importance of how Thin Clients perform in relation to user acceptance this paper presents a series of case studies highlighting key points to be addressed in order......

The Power of Choice

... INTRUDUCTION Planning (also called forethought) is the process of thinking about and organizing the activities required to achieve a desired goal. Planning involves the creation and maintenance of a plan. As such, planning is a fundamental property of intelligent behavior. This thought process is essential to the creation and refinement of a plan, or integration of it with other plans; that is, it combines forecasting of developments with the preparation of scenarios of how to react to them. An important, albeit often ignored aspect of planning, is the relationship it holds with forecasting. Forecasting can be described as predicting what the future will look like, whereas planning predicts what the future should look like. The counterpart to planning is spontaneous order. Meaning of Curriculum In formal education, a curriculum is the planned interaction of pupils with instructional content, materials, resources, and processes for evaluating the attainment of educational objectives. This process includes the use of literacies and datagogies that are interwoven through the use of digital media and/or texts that address the complexities of learning. Other definitions combine various elements to describe curriculum as follows: • All the learning which is planned and guided by the school, whether it is carried on in groups or individually, inside or outside the school. (John Kerr) • Outlines the skills, performances, attitudes, and values pupils are expected to learn......

Oop Intruduction

...Introduction to Objects “We cut nature up, organize it into concepts, and ascribe significances as we do, largely because we are parties to an agreement that holds throughout our speech community and is codified in the patterns of our language … we cannot talk at all except by subscribing to the organization and classification of data which the agreement decrees.” Benjamin Lee Whorf (1897-1941) The genesis of the computer revolution was in a machine. The genesis of our programming languages thus tends to look like that machine. But computers are not so much machines as they are mind amplification tools (“bicycles for the mind,” as Steve Jobs is fond of saying) and a different kind of expressive medium. As a result, the tools are beginning to look less like machines and more like parts of our minds, and also like other forms of expression such as writing, painting, sculpture, animation, and filmmaking. Object-oriented programming (OOP) is part of this movement toward using the computer as an expressive medium. This chapter will introduce you to the basic concepts of OOP, including an overview of development methods. This chapter, and this book, assumes that you have some programming experience, although not necessarily in C. If you think you need more preparation in programming before tackling this book, you should work through the Thinking in C multimedia seminar, downloadable from This chapter is background and supplementary material.
