Many different views abound on the origins of modern capitalism, causalities that range from economic to political, from religious to cultural, or for some, an amalgamation of societies need to expand and the resources necessary to fuel that expansion. Max Weber's the Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism is a study of the relationship between the ethics of ascetic Protestantism and the emergence of the spirit of modern capitalism. An ascetic Protestant is one who practices self-denial and self-discipline. Weber argues that the religious ideas of groups such as the Calvinists played a role in creating the capitalistic spirit. Calvinism focused on predestination and God's infinite power, a hierarchical system that transcended religion and moved into economic and social activities.

This is true not only in cases where the difference in religion coincides with one of nationality, and thus of cultural development . . . . The same thing…… [Read More]

Economic Impact Australian Mining Boom

Words: 2442 Length: 7 Pages Document Type: Case Study Paper #: 88340090


In the period between 2002 and 2012, Australia experienced a mining boom; a period in which the level of exports increased more than threefold and also the investment made in mining as a percentage of the nation’s GDP increasing from 2 percent to 8 percent. Imperatively, during the mining boom period, there was a significant increase in demand for minerals. This is because of the demand for minerals not only locally but also internationally. Therefore, this caused a rightward shift in the demand curve. This leads to the positioning of a new equilibrium price. The comparative theory best explains the exportation of minerals by Australia and the importation of other commodities from other nations. In this regard, Australia is considered to have a comparative advantage in the production of minerals because it can produce minerals at a relatively lower opportunity cost compared to China. Another aspect that was influenced…… [Read More]

Coach-Athlete Relationship: Bob Bowman and Michael Phelps

Over the years, intense focus on sports has been on the coach -- athlete relationships and their link to athlete performance. Along the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation cognitive evaluation theory, there is a hierarchical model of motivational sequence proposed in developing coaches' personal orientation for coaching. The focus culminates the context within which they operate while making their perceptions of behavior and motivation of athletes and influencing component of coaching outcomes. The paper identifies personality and social processes aimed at determining favorable coaching behaviors. This study focuses on the coach -- athlete relationship model presented by Bob Bowman and Michael Phelps whilst describing how coaches can influence the motivation of their athletes.

In the article by Brownson, et al., the authors assert that environmental changes and certain policy interventions can have a positive impact in terms of reducing the incidence of chronic disease in a community. The authors go on to explain how interventions and environmental policies in a community can "…provide opportunities, support, and cues to help people develop healthier behaviors" (Brownson, et al., 2005, p. 17.2). This article also posits that pursuing a healthier environment benefits everyone in the community, which is a policy that makes sense from a public health standpoint because "changing the behavior of one person at a time" is short-sighted (Brownson, 17.2). Among the interventions that Brownson reviews are: a) tobacco use reduction (through clean air laws; taxes; restriction of availability); b) advertising; and education; c) better access to fitness facilities and school-based physical education programs; d) encouraging healthy eating in schools…… [Read More]

working with a small group of children from years 4 doing a reading activity sheet set by the teacher. One child is being disruptive and "off task."

It is possible the child is off-task because he or she is not quite developmentally ready either for pre-reading tasks or tasks that include worksheets. The child might be feeling somewhat insecure. Like the child who is given a toy too advanced for him and plays with the box instead of the boy, the child might be in a little too deep. I would sit by the child and encourage him, simplifying the task for him if necessary, providing moral support and using his paper as an example so he would have the help he needs. Probably proximity alone would calm his behavior but he might need more than that.

Risk Management in Family Owned Businesses

Risk Management in Family Owned Businesses

A family business can be simply described as "any business in which a majority of the ownership or control lies within a family, and in which two or more family members are directly involved" (Bowman-Upton, 1991). In other words, it is a multifaceted, twofold structure consisting of the family and the business meaning that the involved members are both the part of a job system and of a family system (Bowman-Upton, 1991).

Most families seek stability, intimacy, a sense of community, and belonging through the family business (Hess, 2006). On the other hand, whenever family and business are mentioned together, a majority of people think of continuous conflict, competition and contention (Crenshaw, 2005). However, "successful family businesses do not let the family destroy the business or the business destroy the family" (Hess, 2006).

Characteristics of an Ideal Appraisal System

The concept of performance appraisal is not new; it has been undertaken for many years at organizational, departmental and individual levels as part of performance management strategies. There are many different types of appraisal systems, from standard feedback assessment to peer-based reviews and 360 degree reviews. The issue with many systems is not the underlying theory, but the way it is applied. An appraisal is simply a tool; the value will be in the way it is used rather than its presence. Therefore, when looking at appraisals it may be argued there are a number of key elements which should ideally be present in appraisal.

The key characteristics of any appraisal system will include the need to be clear and understood by those who use the system to give and/or receive appraisals with clear policy and implementation guidelines. The system should also have…… [Read More]

Personal Reflective Analysis as an Employee

Finding employment is one of the benchmarks of any person's life, and a job or training experience can be very rewarding, or it can be one of the worst events in a young life. The power of a work experience should not be underestimated especially when it comes early in one's working life. Since, work is a seminal part of a person's life, and a stark dividing line between childhood and adulthood, an individual needs to examine every youthful experience so that they can have better ones in the future. The importance then in the issues that occur at work is that they can be stepping stones to real solutions later on in a working life, or they can become progenitors of bitter feelings about work in general.

The focus should be on learning from experiences, but sometimes this is…… [Read More]

The writer concludes that the social scientists have been correct when they have mentioned the family dynamics and parental behavior as major influences in the growth and development of the child.

Also Henry Biller (1993) asserts that the ability of the parents to develop an intimate connection with their baby and their essential responsibility throughout the newborn's growth and maturity has a profound impact on the behavior of the child because it helps their child to build and grow an upbeat body figure, self-worth, ethical principles and academic and social capability.

Therefore in light of the above mentioned facts it is essential for parents to spend a lot of time with their children and engage in constructive activities so that they can be emotionally connected with their parents and grow up to be trusting and loving individuals.

This proposal is for a study that will determine what, if any empathy changes take place with regard to war, after viewers watch a movie about the realities of war. It will not provide answers about the possible desensitization of feelings, if the participants were to be exposed to the movie many times, as has been proven happens in television violence exposure. The weakness of this study will include the inability to know if a different movie would provide a different impact and if the geographic and regional area that all participants are drawn from have an impact on the results.

(2007), there existed no reviews on the efficacy of phenylephrine as a metabolized decongestant. With legal conditions invoking its use thusly as early as 2002, it should be seen as surprising, problematic and irresponsible on the part of drug companies to actively work to promote this as a replacement for pseudoephedrine. Thus, all indications from the research are that those seeking to treat cold and flu symptoms will be better served by purchasing the behind-the-counter pseudoephedrine-based treatment rather than over-the-counter phenylephrine-based substitutes.

A group of authors note, "In the United States, an increase from fewer than four percent to more than 50% of new cases of type 2 diabetes in the pediatric population was reported between the years of 1982 and 1998" (Leung, Kamla, Lee, and Mak). This means that children in our family could come down with the disease earlier in life, and they would have to manage their disease throughout their lives.

After diagnosis, without treatment, the disease can progress. One of the problems with the disease is that people often do not know they have the disease, and so it progresses before they gain treatment. Therefore, it is important to know the symptoms of diabetes. They can include fatigue and weakness, dehydration (often due to increased urination), increased thirst, weight loss, blurred vision, and confusion. There can also be some severe, long-term complications from type 2 diabetes. It can…… [Read More]

Improving Nursing Retention Rates by Reducing Burnout

Improving Nursing Practice by Reducing Burnout Levels

Nursing may be the most stressful of all professions, and it is not surprising that many nurses abandon their careers after experiencing the rigors of their workplace. A growing body of research clearly shows that nurses in general and those working in emergency department settings in particular are at the highest risk of any profession for experiencing professional burnout syndrome (Hamaideh & Ammouri, 2011). For instance, Hamaideh and Ammouri (2011) emphasize that, "Many nursing tasks by normal standards are distasteful, giving strong evidence to support the belief that nursing is a stressful profession and that some causes of stressors are found in different areas of work, especially in areas where multiple and complex skills are required such as emergency rooms or departments" (p. 174).

Behaviorism Reinforcement Punishment and Extinction

garbage is a terminal behavior that can be shaped by multiple methods like reinforcement (positive or negative) or punishment. The initial behavior is not taking out the garbage at all, except when nagged incessantly. The goal would be to create a terminal behavior that involves taking out the garbage on the person's own initiative. In this case, fixed outcome shaping would be more appropriate because the behavior should be reinforced consistently. The steps I would take to shape the behavior are as follows.

First, I would explain to the person that the target terminal behavior is to take out the garbage when it is full. This involves a degree of critical thought on the part of the subject, as the person takes initiative when the garbage is full. The goal is for the person to take out the garbage without being asked but it is critical to establish the goals…… [Read More]

There are several issues to consider when selecting an investment banker for an IPO. First of all, the respective bank (or the banker himself) needs to have an established track record that can be proven with concrete figures and performance thresholds. It is important to have relevant data to back assumptions that guarantee the bank's relevance in the industry, particularly in terms of previous successful IPOs and connections in the field. Another important issue will be the investment bank's capabilities: does it have sufficient resources to properly handle an IPO?

At the same time, it is important for the investment bank to match the profile of the company undertaking the IPO: it is useful to have an investment bank that understands the particularities of the business, not only of the financial perspective on things. It will thus also be able to build easier connections related to the IPO in…… [Read More]

Autonomy-Supportive coaching style is more effective for female than male athletes in team sports.

Gender (nominal)

Gender is a concept which connects directly to the sense of how receptive or non-receptive humans are likely to be regarding all forms of coaching. Gender is one manifestation of the notion of how prosocial or anti-social human beings are likely to be. Some experts have argued that human beings are naturally inclined to be prosocial animals when given the proper nurturing -- such as a namely this type of support mechanism: when this type of support is lacking, it is more than likely that one will substitute it by pursuing extrinsic goals such as fame, ego enhancement or other extrinsic rewards. Such rewards are not something which help to reinforce prosocial behavior (Hodge & Lonsdale, 2011).

Supply and Demand Curve

Supply and Demand Curve: Shifts and Movements

Demand is, in basic terms, that quantity of a certain product/good that consumers are able and willing to buy/purchase at the prevailing price (Hirschey, 2008). A product's market demand function relates its aggregate quantity demanded to the various parameters, including price, that influence the said quantity (Hirschey, 2008). The demand curve is an expression of "the relation between the price charged for a product and the quantity demanded, holding constant the effects of all other variables" (Hirschey, 2008, p. 137). When it comes to supply, the term according to Hirschey refers to the quantity of a product that sellers are able and willing to bring to the market, under the prevailing economic conditions (Hirschey, 2008). A supply curve, therefore, is an expression of the relation between the quantity supplied and the price charged, ceteris paribus (Taylor & Weerapana, 2011).

Personality Theory

Describe and discuss the basic characteristics, tenets and methods of investigation/research for psychodynamic and cognitive perspectives regarding personality psychology, and the benefits/strengths and limitations/weaknesses of each approach.

The challenge that the researchers and personality theorists will face is to parsimoniously capture the process-oriented and dynamic nature of personality. Dweck (1996) in an earlier study asserts that "trait theorists have addressed some of the more static, descriptive aspects of personality-how people may be concisely described in terms of a set of global characteristics" (Dweck, 1996, p. 348). We are yet at the place where we can briefly express the context-sensitive and process-driven patterns belonging to the personality. Probably one way to do this is by understanding the predominant goals of people as well as their beliefs regarding the process through which the realization of these goals can be carried out (Dweck, 1996, p. 348).

Why there is free trade between states in the United States but not necessary between countries

Trade between states in the United States is not restricted as this may hurt the entire wider American economy. United States in a way restricts free trade between it and other countries for a number of reasons. To start us off, the United States government uses tools like tariffs and quotas to enhance better allocation of resources. Tariffs and quotas other than helping the government generate revenue and discouraging imports into the United States, help in protecting smaller and more vulnerable companies and industries (Worth Publishers, 2010). Quotas basically limit the amount of specific goods that can be imported into the United States. The most common trade restrictions that are normally used in trade between USA and other countries are tariffs and quotas. Apart from generating revenues, tariffs…… [Read More]

Economic Conditions of Peru

The Peruvian economy is of modest size, with a GDP of $332 million that equates to a GDP per capita of $10,900.

Horus History Of the Egyptian God, Horus

Horus is one of the most important Egyptian gods and the Pharaoh was seen to be his earthly embodiment. At the same time, the Pharaohs were the followers of Ra and so Horus became associated with the sun as well and was seen as the son of the God, Osiris. In the common perception of Egyptian mythology, Horus is known as one of the offspring of the original pair of Egyptian gods, Ra and Rhea. Horus' siblings were Set, Isis, and Nephthys.

The mythological story continues with Osiris succeeding Ra as king of Egypt. Osiris is credited with bringing civilization to the Egyptians.

Business of Soccer

The specific word "soccer" was developed in the 1880s in the Oxford University. There was a custom there to use "er" to the end of words they used in a short form. Thus the short name for rugby football had been shortened to "rugger." The word soccer was the reply given by a student named Charles Wreford Brown, when he was questioned about his wish to play "rugger." He expressed his desire to play soccer instead. The form was obtained by the shortening of the word AsSOCiation football. Afterwards, the football league was started and the first goal was scored by Jack Gordon, playing for Preston North End (The Essential History of Soccer). The earliest form of football was an exercise in China which dates back to the 2nd and 3rd centuries, BC. At that time, the rulers were the Han dynasty and they had a form…… [Read More]

Nike's Current Ratio Slightly Improved Indicating Higher

Words: 1302 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 14939823

Nike's current ratio slightly improved, indicating higher liquidity and an improvement in its ability to meet short-term debt obligations. This did not reflect an increase in inventory, because the company's Quick ratio grew by approximately the same percent.


Nike's Quick ratio improved by approximately 3.5%, indicating an improvement in the company's cash position or a decrease in its short-term debt obligations. This might have a lot to do with the fact that Nike derives a significant portion of its income from international sales. Because its revenues are denominated in dollars, money in cash and short-term instruments may have increased in value if they are held overseas in non-dollar currencies. According to Nike's 10-k SEC filing, "Our largest international region, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), reported 20% revenue growth in fiscal 2003 compared to fiscal 2002. This growth reflected a 15 percentage point improvement due to changes in currency…… [Read More]
