Court Analysis

Justice and Court Administration

Administration and management of courts is filled with challenges. Often depending upon the geographical context of the court, such challenges will include resource shortage, a perpetual docket of criminal cases and the broader complexity of providing civil order and justice to communities while balancing constitutional law and local ordinance. Moreover, the complexity of administering justice in and of itself plays a part in the difficulty of court management, with issues such as the deepening ethnic diversity of encountered populations and shifting ideas about victims' rights playing defining roles in the tasks before any given court. The discussion here on language interpretation services and the timeline in the evolution of victims' rights are offered within the context of court administration.

Language Interpretation Services:

It is often the case that courts will find themselves burdened with the task of wading through the details of officer-defendant confrontations…… [Read More]

Court Service Management

How does a court system cope with a changing of the guard when a new administration is elected and key executives and managers are replaced, and/or when policy changes direction as a new political party assumes power?

The court deals with transitions of power by maintaining the established traditions and principles from the Constitution. This is used to ensure that case precedent is respected and to provide stability for the entire political system. As the basic guarantees of the Constitution will not change and cannot be adjusted based upon a new party coming to power. In this case, the structure and attitudes will remain the same. This is from the institution and its practices remaining in place. egardless of what is happening with transitions in power. (Koopmans, 2003) (Neubauer, 2012) (Oakley, 2009)

This differentiation refers to the management and administration of the agricultural resources of the kingdom. This in turn involved an organized network of royal foundations. (Wilkinson 116) the second area of administrative concern was the processing of government revenue and "…its redistribution to the various state operations…" (Wilkinson 116) Wilkinson in his book also deals extensively with managements issues in relation to the Egyptian treasury. (Wilkinson 125)

In understanding the background to management in ancient Egypt one has to continually take into account the wide range of concerns and activities that required ordered control and administration. As Erman states in his work Life in Ancient Egypt (1894), "The enormous properties belonging to the temples required of course complicated machinery for their administration & #8230;certain members of the priestly college were deputed to manage the affairs of the treasury, the commissariat and the correspondence…" (Erman 303)

Managing Employment Relationship

Words: 2319 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 76751928

Managing Employment elationships

The relationships between labour and management can be contentious or amicable, depending on the industry and the leadership involved. When these stakeholders reach loggerheads over disagreements about wages, benefits or working conditions, productivity is diminished, jobs can be lost and national productivity inevitably suffers. To determine what can be done, this paper provides an analysis and explanation concerning the roles of two key stakeholders involved in managing the employment relationship within a UK context, the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service and trade unions. A discussion concerning some of the key challenges that these stakeholders experience in managing employment relations is followed an examination of how the different roles of these stakeholders may impact on employment relations within different UK employing organisations. Finally, a summary of the research and important findings concerning these issues are provided in the conclusion.

Nearly everything the company does…is aimed at reducing the cost and expanding the scope of Internet use" (Carr 2008, p.2). Because of its business model, Google thrives on innovation, so it can encourage its employees to take more risks in their work and act more independently: "Google faces far less risk in product development than the usual business does. It routinely introduces half-finished products & #8230;even if the offerings fail to win a big share of the market they will still tend to produce attractive returns by generating advertising revenue and producing valuable data on customer behavior. For most companies, a failed launch of a new product is very costly. For Google, in general, it's not. Failure is cheap" (Carr 2008, p.2).

Words: 2134 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 83620239



The most recent trajectory for China's economy has been notable for its absence of emphasis on heavy industry. Mao's original plans focused on heavy industry the major driver of Chinese economic growth. Deng, too, had wanted to build out China's capacity in steel and heavy manufacturing industries. In recent years, service industries and light manufacturing have taken a more prominent role in the Chinese economy. The sense is that during the first years of the reforms, it was essential for China to build out its industrial capacity. Having done that, the only role left is to leverage the heavy industry infrastructure in order to help build out the fledgling service industry.

It was the heavy industry that facilitated productivity growth in China in the past couple of decades. Productivity has contributed 13.5% of China's economic growth since the early 1930s (u, 2003). Substantial improvements in infrastructure and technology were able…… [Read More]

Managing Religious Diversity in the

Words: 4595 Length: 11 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 28736846

(Krukowski, 2001) Civil religion and workplace mysticism each change the institutional locus of religious expression from the church, synagogue, or mosque to another public organization- the state or the company. The existence of these different organizations hoists the main question of individuality and perhaps challenging faithfulness.

Both civil religion and workplace theology do not show the likely clashes and problems often met by employees who are also religious practitioners. Jews, Christians, or Muslims who are workforce of a company may well have grounds to question the customs of their company on religio-moral basis. Workplace theology in a funded organization does not distinguish these possible clashes. Institutionally conveying workplace theology is obviously not identical with permitting individual employees to convey their beliefs and customs at work. This grave outlook of workplace theology should not be realized, as a censure of persons who want to live out their definite religious or spiritual…… [Read More]

" (Kotler and Lee 2005, p.3). Since this study was published, the contributions have steadily increased making CS an integral part of every major company today.

A report by Price Water Cooper House in 2010 shows that the CS initiatives and reporting has increased despite the sagging economy and this points to a positive change in the mindset of the management of companies. "PWC explains that such reports have become critical to a company's credibility, transparency and endurance." (Business & the Environment 2010, p.5). The reduced role of the Government in business circles is only going to further increase this trend because companies feel they have an obligation to the society at large and they want to make this country a better place for living. All this is done out of their own interest and initiative rather than any force by any external institution. Also, many companies understand the significance…… [Read More]

Managing Behaviors & Teaching Social Skills

Antisocial behavior in schools in on the rise and has become a concern in school systems, from both a learning perspective and from a safety perspective, as well. Previously, schools have dealt with such behaviors using punitive measures such as expulsion, or even law enforcement measures to attempt to discourage youth from behaving in an undesirable manner. These programs have had little or no effect on curbing behavior problems in schools. Second Step and Boys Town are programs, which implement a positive approach to behavior management. These programs teach youth alternatives to violence and stress problem solving, coping, and conflict management. These programs have had considerably greater success than their predecessors. This research will qualitatively explore the theoretical issues behind the success of these two programs and take a critical look at them to explore ways in which they may be further improved for…… [Read More]

Caseflow Management and Victims Rights

Words: 2004 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 95352924

court administrators have to deal with is the high volume of cases in the court system. Caseflow management is therefore one of the more significant issues that has to be dealt with. There are a number of reasons for this. First, there is only a limited amount of time for courtrooms, for judges and for other court staff. This is the capacity of the court system. The problem is that the demand for this capacity is highly variable. The amount of crime in an area, arrest rates, the ability of prosecutors to close out cases prior to trial, and the length of time required in different cases all factor into the demand function. Given that demand can be difficult to estimate, court administrators often are forced to rely on ad hoc measures in order to optimize their caseflow management.

Some of the different caseflow management techniques that are available to…… [Read More]

It is important to learn about the different cultures that are present in my classroom, as a starting point for understanding. A lot of developing an inclusive classroom involves listening to students and parents, so as to understand their cultures better, and how that pertains to the classroom.

Change Management for WalMart

The commercial environment in which firms compete is forever changing. Internal and external forces stimulate a need for change; firms that fail to change and adapt are likely to stagnate and suffer as a result of their resistance to change. The aim of this paper is to look at an organization which needs to change, considering what change is needed, the lifecycle of change, including consideration of continuous and discontinuous change, and different types of change agents.

Halliburton Management Analysis in Analyzing

Words: 1365 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 13769337

Today Halliburton must address transparency and compliance to the U.S. Government, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in accordance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and also the shareholders. This has added cost and time constraints to their strategic planning process that could potentially cost them incremental business if they were able to respond to the market faster without having to contend with compliance initiatives first.

Ethics

Another aspect of the strategic planning process that has been influenced by the practices of Halliburton is the issue of ethics. In 2005 and 2006 Halliburton was cited by the U.S. Senate for knowingly serving unhealthy water to U.S. troops in the Camp Ar amadi province of Iraq (Donahue, 2006). This ethical lapse was found after the U.S. Senate learned that Halliburton had been given the contract for water purification services in the region, and did not audit their own performance. In other words, Halliburton…… [Read More]

It is humbly submitted to the Hon'ble Court that this respondent as per the issues and syllabus cited submit that the issues of the litigation pertain -- not only to the law of marriage, but also to the recognition if it must be accorded to same sex marriages and unions, and whether no recognizing this social development amounts to denial of the constitutional rights of a group of citizens.

Mitsubishi Sexual Harassment Case Study

efacing an organization is substantial for aiding the aggregate process of organizational development. This measure is responsive, especially when an organization's labor is orientation is not properly oriented. In most scenarios, an organization will require the proper decision development, which will seek to mitigate responsive legislative protocols, and possibly challenging actions of human rights activity. It is as well good to note that most organizational human resource problems are between an employee and another employee. As a result, the top organization will naturally be inclined to harbor these cases that can be punitive the firm. This study proves that a de-facing strategy followed by a disparate treatment action can be applied to salvage the organization from a punitive legislative system.

History Legal Framework of Labor Management Relations

Words: 1746 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 90647132

History of Labor Relations in the United States:

From Industrialization to the Present Day

According to the textbook, Labor Relations, by Arthur A. Sloane & Fred Witney, the history of labor relations in the United States, has seen the increasingly professional nature of the labor union towards the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century. This phenomena has caused union and management to form a more amicable relationship between one another, by in large, in many industries. However, this positive relationship, over the course of the history of the United States history, has been a relatively recent development. Legally speaking, labor unions have gained more rights in terms of their bargaining power with management, and workers have gained the right to freely organize and join such unions. ut these legal rights came only with great difficulty.

The American public's attitude towards unionization has also alternately…… [Read More]

Because of the blow dealt to the economy by the Great Depression many American workers began to distrust the nature of American industrialization, even capitalism. The 1930's were thus a fairly prosperous time for the labor movement in the sense that long-standing legal prohibitions were struck down that impeded the labor movement and worker autonomy in an unfavorable economy. After World War II, however, the balance between employees and employers began to shift slightly again, in favor of management. But management never retained the same unregulated place in industry as it had before the Great Depression. The Taft-Hartley Act of 1947 ceded some bargaining power back to management at the expense of union membership, as did the La Griffin Act of 1957. But these acts clarified the terms of the earlier acts, rather than openly prohibited labor's right to exist, to organize, and to negotiate as an entity with managerial organizations of industry.

Today, this negotiation between the rights of labor and management continues. Union behavior as a management structure has become controversial. Even the long-merged AFL and CIO's organizational structure has undergone substantial revisions in recent years. (125) Nationally, it has been alleged, the major union structures often resemble the corporations they deal with, having elected heads and delegates from different industries and areas of the country. Local versions of unions often mimic this structure, or have their own structure, dependant upon local needs. (157) Membership in local unions was hard hit in the nation, particularly when the national arms of the AFL and the CIO were accused of having 'connections' or links to mob-related activities during the 1950's. Even relatively independent union organizations were viewed as suspect because of this perceived connection.

However, unionism as a force in America could never really die. The gains unions had accomplished for workers in terms of limiting hours were not forgotten, and even during the darkest days of labor and accusations leveled upon its increasingly bureaucratic structures, the memory of The Great Depression remained fresh in many workers' memories, even during the relatively prosperous 1950's and 1960's. Although unionization in America today has become increasingly fragmented, professional, and atomized, with the creation of professional and governmental unions and organizations, unions remain forces to be reckoned with in the landscape of industry.

Grants for science education are provided to schools and individuals, with the objective of helping to inspire careers in science. ("About HHMI," 2010) When you put these different elements tougher, this shows how HHMI is involved in medical research funding from: working directly with researchers to providing funding on a host of projects and initiatives. This is important, because it allows the nonprofit to fund a number of different research studies, while giving scientists the flexibility to effectively conduct their projects. As a result, this has helped HHMI to support a number of different medical breakthroughs to include: making significant progress in spinal cord injuries, HIV / AIDS research and medication that can be used to effectively treat leukemia. At the same time, the organization is focused on identifying the genes that are responsible for: cystic fibrosis, colon cancer and muscular dystrophy. (Leung, 2004)

INTOUCTION

It was after the Korean War that an entirely new breed of college educated managers appeared on the scene and exuded a greater sense of responsibility that translated into a wave of consciousness for social well-being and social upheaval that swarmed through the second half of the 20th century (Losey 1998). Their influence markedly changed the thought of the American employee. But another group in the 60s and the 70s heightened the established interest in laborers welfare and feelings to the point of affecting all facets of business, including the growth of market research, communications and public relations. This second wave shifted focus from scientific management to the employer-employee relationship. The new gear led to the development of programs that increased wages and fringed benefits and the eliciting of worker ideas and initiative in recognizing the link organizational philosophy or policy to greater productivity (Losey).…… [Read More]

Some other issues are those of employee compensation, employee benefits, and so on.

The first step in a human resources management policy is that of 'ecruitment' of the company's employees.

In order to prepare an Advertisement for the purpose of recruitment, certain guidelines must be followed. These are: there must be included, in the advertisement, a complete job description.

Words: 653 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 88773671

Human Resource Management was previously more of an industry dependent way of filling open positions within an organization. Modern Strategic HR Management, though, is not simply using computers to recruit and assist in hiring or firing, but the planning and implementation of information management, organizational management, and marketing to support the entire business operation. In effect, it is taking the idea of staffing, retention and training and deconstructing the HR portion to individual managers and employees. The organization thus looks to HR for expertise in planning and adapting both strategic and tactical planning (alker, 2004).

Some of the more traditional HR tasks include developing and posting position announcements, developing tests to ensure competency in those jobs, working with managers through the interview process or pre-screening, and determining compensation information. For these functions to work well, HR must be responsible for the lifecycle of the employee. The tasks above may be…… [Read More]

Examining Walmart for Lessons in Managing Diversity

Words: 1327 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 93188775

Wal-Mart remains one of the most important economic actors in the U.S., both because of its contribution to the economy and because of its role as an active job creator. Wal-Mart is a huge recruiter, employing a large number of individuals and offering a range of opportunities for them, including health insurance and the possibility of rising to managerial positions. Wal-Mart is also a diverse organization, employing different race or sex minorities, including African-American, Hispanics and women.

The case study about Wal-Mart clearly reflects the approach that Wal-Mart has taken in this sense. The case study mentions that Wal-Mart is the world's largest employee and this alone implies diversity: it shows that Wal-Mart has an international presence and, in that quality, it is willing to embrace cultural differences and blend its organizational culture according to these differences. In terms of statistics, the case study shows that Wal-Mart has 41,000 Asian…… [Read More]

Police Management:

Throughout history, police management has experienced numerous changes because of the various significant changes that have continued to occur in the society. The emerging trends have contributed to the development of new policing governance, which has had considerable implications for police management. Towards the end of the 20th Century, the governmental police reforms have contributed to an end to public policing, a claim that is regarded as extrapolated towards a certain extreme. However, in light of the changes that have occurred in the recent past, it's evident that public policing has not come to an end but that the monopoly of public policing has come to an end. As a result, the dominance of public policing that characterized the 19th and 20th centuries is no longer a characteristic of the modern era. Actually, the emerging diverse totality of public policing is a reflection of the so-called post-modern period.…… [Read More]

Outages in this case have ranged from denial-of-service-attacks to viruses to other more sophisticated forms of attack.

It can be argued that from a responsibility standpoint, it is only money and can be replaced.

It would appear that licensure is not necessary, nor is a particular body of knowledge in order to become a successful manager.

We have demonstrated that managers do not have to possess a standardized set of minimal knowledge in order to perform their job well. Many examples illustrate successful entrepreneurs that do not have even the minimal knowledge base, yet they are a success by many standards. From the standpoint of the necessity of a minimal knowledge base, it would appear that managers do not qualify as professionals from a sociological perspective.

The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Kentucky sided with the defendant, Humana Inc., in January 2010 and dismissed the case on the grounds that the facts were insufficient to support a claim of racial discrimination under the McDonnell Douglass framework.

Automation of the Drug Court System These

Words: 607 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 57985354

Automation of the Drug Court System

These are specially formed courts whose jurisdiction involves offenders majorly with drug related problems. Drug courts are primarily an alternative to the normal prison, or the detention camps. The criminal justice system in drug courts works hand in hand with the treatment systems. The main objective of the drug courts is to provide the offender with the necessary support towards recovery, to maintain their stay during recovery and afterwards to enable them lead a life that is productive to the society.

Drug courts represent a unique approach to managing drug-related cases. This approach is a fairly recent phenomenon for the justice system. It grew out of problems created for the justice system, and the communities it serves, when the growth of drug-related arrests threatened to overwhelm the system in the early 1990s.

There is an urgent need to carry out urgent mitigation measures; this…… [Read More]

Personnel Management -- Poor Personnel

Words: 2213 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 69246715

Yet, it is not the global recession that prompted the problems, but it is more of the time when they surfaced. The cause is the poor personnel management implemented for years within the organization, meaning as such that a solution can only come with the improvement of the personnel management strategies. The lines below point out to some strategies that could be developed and implemented to address the problem of poor personnel management at British Airways:

(a)

The creation and implementation of a strong corporate culture focused not only on customer satisfaction, but also on employee on the job satisfaction. British Airways should constitute a safe, pleasant and dynamic working environment that values employee input and embraces employee diversity (Matthews, 1998); an advantage would be offered by incentives, such as flexible working schedules or telecommuting (Joice, 1991)

(b)

The creation of a technological infrastructure that allows communications among staff members;…… [Read More]

Criminal Justice - Risk Management

Words: 892 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 26166089



Other specific risks to patrol officers, including those operating in pairs, include standard procedures suggested by past studies of the circumstances in which attacks on officers have occurred. For example, interviews with prisoners who assaulted officers during their arrests disclosed that many such attacks were initiated by the subject upon realization that their arrest was imminent. In many cases, it was the radio transmission alerting the officers of the subject's wanted status that was overheard by the subject.

Effective risk management in this regard led to the use of police codes, both for the officer to alert dispatch that the subject was in hearing range, and also for police dispatchers to advise officers as to the subject's status without alerting the offender simultaneously (Sweeney, 2005).

Likewise, other specific risks associated with the policing and correctional environment are effectively reduced by the application of risk management principles, including the prohibition of…… [Read More]

Drug Courts: A Program to Reinvent Justice for Addicts

For the past several decades, drug use has had an overwhelming effect upon the American justice system, with drug and drug-related crime being the most common offense in almost every community (Drug Strategies, 1996). eyond the troubling ability of these problems to fill prisons to capacity, the traditional judicial system seemed to have no deterrent effect on these crimes (Drug and Crime Facts, 1994). A disturbing "revolving door" pattern had emerged, with drug offenders moving through the system in a predictable pattern of arrest, prosecution, conviction, incarceration, and release. In a few weeks, sometimes only a few days, the same person was back in the system again, arrested for drug possession or a drug-related crime (National Association of Drug Court Professionals [NADCP], 1997). A particularly difficult problem faced by the system was the growing use of crack cocaine in the 1980s…… [Read More]

Hence, the likelihood of having to repurchase a large amount of repurchases would result. This was increasingly risky as the company spiralled into much lower reserves than it would admit publicly. The increasing risks were recognized by New Century employees. Despite efforts by these employees to suggest changes, the response by Senior Management was generally to reject or ignore these suggestions.

Senior Management was therefore fully aware of the increase of early payment defaults on loans as early as mid-2004. Although rising interest rates exacerbated the risks inherent in the type of products offered by New Century, these were ignored by Senior Management, who continued to capitalize on investor demand without any regard for the probability of repurchase requirements. The inevitable, however, occurred, and New Century faltered under the pressure.

Additionally, Senior Management also failed to provide inadequate attention to the issue of investor "kickouts." Relatively elementary loan rejections such…… [Read More]

While on the surface it may seem that, in the interest of fairness, one who relies on the advice of a representative of the government should be entitled to the express conditions of any benefits stated by said government agent, the deeper issues involve the very system of checks and balances on which our founding fathers intended in our Constitution. The questions of potential executive fraud and misrepresentation arises were a private individual able to estop a withholding of Treasury funds contrary to the law. Certainly, the amount of time and money could amount to a huge waste of taxpayer's money should any individual with a grievance over legally denied benefits be able to bring their case to the federal courts.

Another case illustrates how important proper investigation can be to the outcome of a case. Various authors cite the case of a fire in a home that killed two children. The children's mother had left them in the care of her boyfriend, who left them alone and left the residence. A small fire was seen burning outside the home after he left. The authors note, "The suspect was arrested and charged with arson and murder. Law enforcement authorities claimed that accelerant was detected on the suspect's clothes and in fire debris sampled outside the dwelling" (Various authors, 2003, p. 127). In fact, the accelerant found outside the home was completely different from that found on the suspect, (which was gasoline), and eventually the charges were dropped. The defendant worked as an automobile mechanic, which explained the presence of gasoline on his clothing. This indicates how a botched investigation can lead…… [Read More]

Human esources Management - Maintaining a Competitive Edge in the Corporate Marketplace

Change continues to reshape the workplace. Today's H professional is called upon to help the organization retain its competitive edge in the marketplace. Along with representing the best interests of employees, H professionals assume the role of strategic partner, administrative expert, and change agent. H assumes a critical role in promoting the vision and shaping the focus of the company. H professionals must be skilled and knowledgeable business partners, able to wear many hats while demonstrating their own competencies in communication and decision-making skills. (Aghazadeh, 1999)

Today, H departments face many challenges. Some are conventional and continuing concerns.

After a lengthy preview on unionized and union free campaign, I would like to inform about company operations and management under the two environments.

Workers under unionized environment follow a process for airing their complaints. Workers under union free environment present their complaints in the courts, as well as to the management. In contrast, employees can sue workers when they do unlawfully against the workplace. This is of considerable advantage to the business management under unionized environment as the collective agreement will be of significant assistance to the business, that is, case laws of past years against the business will not pile up and be used against the business in a court of law by the employee.

Since, under unionized environment, employees undergo collective bargaining, it often follows work jurisdiction. The management often concentrates on the output according…… [Read More]

Strategic Perspectives in Management Accounting and Finance

Words: 2965 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 49188738

Strategic Perspectives in Management Accounting and Finance

The main reason for differentiation in the accounting studies seemed to occur due to the functionalist perceptions in the expertise of social studies. According to Dellaportas and Davenport (2008) professions are being separated by occupation on the basis of the level of distinctiveness one occupation has from another; a model first designed by Greenwood in 1975.

Abercrombie et al. (1994, p. 335) in their study explained that such distinctiveness is surrounded by the concept which results in more beneficiary outcomes for the public than for an individual's professional interest in providing services. This simply means that it was an original human demand that gave birth to all professions. There's an equality on profession's social compulsion i.e. there is a balance between a professional's job and his obligation to serve the public. In this regard Carey (1965, p. 376) asserted that it was in…… [Read More]

International Organizations Impact Incarceration and Prison Management in Brazil

People incarcerated in prisons from developing countries like Brazil face long years of confinement in dirty and cramped quarters. Some of the harsh conditions the prisons present include inadequate hygiene, insufficient food allocations, and no clothing or other basic amenities. Even as the conditions do not form a pattern across the continent, the prevalence hits higher concerns requiring intervention from international organizations. The interactions allow resident prison managers to address inadequacies through prison reform and increased attention towards human rights. Various barriers include state secrecy, absence of public interest, and weak civil society inhibiting collection of sustainable information on the deplorable prisons. The veil of ignorance on the kinds of prison conditions that fuel abuse and neglect of people incarcerated makes it imperative for investigation of prison trends. International organizations generate information regarding issues that affect the penal system of the…… [Read More]

The simple, general definition of "insurance" undergoes numerous variations according to the natures of insureds and of possible claimants. A healthcare organization, by virtue of its complexity, may be faced with a multitude of factors that must be considered for adequate coverage. A review of various insurances shows that types of claims, types of insured individuals/organizations, and types of claimants interact to determine the types of insurance needed.

The Basic Concept Of Insurance

Generally, insurance is a contract in which one party indemnifies or guarantees another party against loss that might be caused by a specific event or danger (Merriam-ebster, Inc., 2013).

Culture is no small force; it shapes individuals and impacts tremendously on politics (McCartney, 2004). Nations are made up of people, who, from the moment of their birth, are deeply and profoundly shaped by the cultures and customs from whence they came (McCartney, 2004). Because history and culture are two such inseparable animals, it's worthwhile to take a brief look at the history of the Bahamas.

Brief History

Many history scholars believe that the first inhabitants of the Bahamas were Aborigines of Mongol ancestry who migrated there 100,000 years ago via a bridge which connected Alaska and Siberia. However, others attribute original dwellers of the Bahamas to have come from Haiti (McCartney, 2004). And yet still other scholars believe that the original inhabitants of the Bahamas were the Lucayan Indians (Arawaks) that Columbus met when he arrived there in 1492 (McCartney, 2004).Despite Columbus's "discovery" of this land and these people…… [Read More]

The U.S. Supreme Court has given employers "little choice" in the matter, Boyd explains. If a company "can prove" they took "reasonable care" in order to prevent or to correct inappropriate behavior, under the law they have (in many cases) "safe harbor" from punitive damages (Boyd, p. 332). The author states that sexual harassment training "…has evolved to become an ornate administrative display which has the appearance of concern…" but which in fact is "expedient in that it mitigates employer liabilities in any future court cases" (p. 332).

Charles a. Pierce, Professor of Management at the University of Memphis, offers another approach for HR managers in his article published by Human Resources Management. He asserts that "nearly 10 million workplace romances develop annually" in the U.S. And "about 40% of employees" have had a workplace romance (Pierce, et al., 2009, p. 448).

The authors state: "The amphetamines occasioned dose-related increases in d- amphetamine-appropriate responding, whereas hydromorphone did not. Amphetamines also occasioned dose-related increases in reports of the drug being most like "speed," whereas hydromorphone did not. However, both amphetamines and hydromorphone occasioned dose-related increases in reports of drug liking and in three scales of the ARCI. Thus, some self-report measures were well correlated with responding on the drug-appropriate lever and some were not. Lamb and Henningfield (1994) suggest that self-reports are complexly controlled by both the private event and the subject's history of experience with the drug. Some of the self-reports they observed (e.g., feels like speed) are probably occasioned by a relatively narrow range of stimuli because in the subject's experience with drug administration, these reports have been more selectively reinforced by the verbal community relative to other reports (e.g., drug liking). They also suggest that these results imply…… [Read More]

Production and Operations Management: Case Study of Hudson Alpine Furniture

Organizational growth is among the chief objectives for nearly any small business. However, particularly for small business of limited resources and scale, sometimes this growth can come on more rapidly than expected. In such instances, it is incumbent upon the organization to accommodate this growth. This often calls upon organizational leaders to make difficult decisions about how best to proceed. Such is the nature of the dilemma facing Hudson's Alpine Furniture, serving the entire Australian Alps region with custom-designed furniture that is locally sourced and targeted to appeal to private owners of ski lodge properties and vacation rentals. As the analyses hereafter demonstrate though, the unexpected acceleration of commercial buyer interest has led to a Production and Operations Management (POM) impasse that will be examined hereafter.

Technical Analysis:

The impasse centers on the increased workload produced by a heightened demand…… [Read More]

Wildlife Management There Are Abundant Pressures on

Words: 2229 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 52286911

Wildlife Management

There are abundant pressures on open land, from urban and suburban sprawl to the increase of factory farming. At the same time, it is being recognized that more and more species are being lost as land becomes less diversified and habitats are destroyed. In addition, life is becoming more stressful and people seek ways to engage in recreation for relief. There may be a way to combine more balanced land use with the need for human populations to engage in recreation, and to save significant portions of the natural world at the same time. These methods involved dual uses for open land, both agricultural and forest, and would benefit from additional support by governmental agencies.

Statement of the problem

In an era when it is more profitable to sell rural or close-in suburban land for development than to retain the land for farming or other uses, means must…… [Read More]

The infant mortality rate is of 8.97 deaths per 1,000 live births. This rate places Kuwait on the 160th position on the chart of the CIA. The adult prevalence rate of HIV / AIDS is of 0.1 per cent.

In terms of economy, Kuwait is a relatively open, small and wealthy economy. It relies extensively on oil exports -- petroleum exports for instance account for 95 per cent of the total export revenues as well as for 95 per cent of the federal income. The Kuwaiti representatives have recently set the goal of increasing the oil production per day. Currently, Kuwait is facing the pressures of the internationalized economic crisis -- which however, due to recent economic surpluses in Kuwait, affects the economy to a lower extent.

Simultaneously with the increase in oil production, the Kuwaiti authorities are also focusing on diversifying the economic activities in the sense of supporting…… [Read More]

Ax Men v Timber Management

Words: 1055 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 38449404

Defenders of the proposal pointed to Oregon's 12% unemployment rate at the time (which has lowered to a still-record high 10%) largely caused because of contractions in the housing sector and construction industry, part of the lifeblood of the state. Recently, environmentalists have pointed to the catastrophic waterslides caused by heavy rains and the fact that the speed of global warming will harm, not simply generations of the future, but even generations in the here and now, given the rate of the climbing temperatures caused by destruction of forest land. More intensive logging is not the answer, they say.

The Obama Administration has been far more sympathetic to environmental concerns than the past Administration. Citing environmental damage, President Obama rescinded the OPR Act or estern Oregon Plan Revisions, a Bush Administration plan to increase old-growth logging. "Experts agreed that a huge increase in clear-cut logging would muddy important salmon streams,…… [Read More]

The two UPWARD ones = "SALES, PRICE MOVE in SAME DIRECTION, WEAKLY"

= WHAT'S the DEAL? NOT SAME.

Other factors at play besides just price alone.

Likewise next graph, sales to ADVERTISING.

IF more advertising = more sales, then ALL of THEM WOULD BE 100% (1 = 100%).

WE spent 25% more advertising than everyone else but our bar is NOT as HIGH

= THERE IS SUCH THING as "TOO MUCH ADVERTISING YES"

And we found it. = Cut advertising won't hurt sales, but WILL save money.

AND this is borne out by NEXT slide, where GREEN LINE dips far lower than all the rest: =

We're spending too much, not getting competitive performance out of our advertising $$s.

THIS IS a BIG DEAL, it MEANS DON'T SPEND SO MUCH;

WE WOULDN'T KNOW THAT WITHOUT DOING THIS

The same thing basically goes for number of Salespeople as well.

Intercultural Management Persuasion Tactics Are Popular Strategies

Words: 648 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 7756828

Intercultural Management

Persuasion tactics are popular strategies applied in dispute management and decision-making in international negotiations. Persuasion is the core center of various alternative dispute resolution approaches. Persuasion is the only way for people to refine an international negotiation that is not working according to their expectations. Since persuasion is, the most popular tactic used to solve conflicts in international negotiations. Therefore, it is necessary for all negotiators to be familiar with negotiation skills and dynamics. However, some persuasion tactics used in international negotiations have shown to be undesirable and would not elicit productive and efficient results (Michaelowam, 2011).

Negative effect in international negotiation: even before the beginning of any negotiation, people in a negative mood lack the desired confidence. They become unable to use cooperative strategies. In the process of negotiating, negotiators who are in a negative mood will not enjoy the interaction; they will demonstrate minimal contentious behavior,…… [Read More]

Business Management

Discuss specific challenges that managers face in each of the following industries that were less important five years ago.

An important challenge in the apparel industry today was also present five years ago but has become increasingly important in the interim (and looks to become increasingly important still in the years to come) is that of the difficulty that American businesses have in competing with companies overseas. This is arguably true in all fields but is especially so in those fields in which there is a high need for long hours of relatively unskilled labor.

Making clothes is a very labor-intensive process and all such industries (in both heavy and light manufacturing) are experiencing problems in today's marketplace. The decision this month of Levi Strauss to close its last American plant and to have all of its garments produced overseas is emblematic of the fact that it may…… [Read More]

6. Maslow's hierarchy of needs

Abraham Maslow constructed a pyramid of five levels, each level presenting the types of needs that motivate people. At the bottom level sit the physiological needs, followed by needs of safety, needs of loving, being loved and belonging to a community. At the fourth level sit the needs of esteem, followed by the needs of self-actualization. In order to maintain an organizational staff member motivated and satisfied on the job, it is necessary for the leadership team to strive and manage to satisfy as many of these needs as possible. Below are some pointers as to how the desiderate could be achieved:

Physiological needs -- the first thing is that of remunerating the employee in a means that allows him to exchange the salary for the purchase of primary commodities and services. The second thing is that of ensuring that the employee is able to…… [Read More]
