Communication

You should do Exercise #1 (Week #1) first if you haven’t done it already. It’s the StrengthFinder, which will take you about 20 minutes and give you much more information about yourself that you could use for Exercise #5. It’s up to you, but it will be useful. For the Functional Resume, access your latest resume to use as a guideline. Then transform it into a “functional one” for another way to present yourself. Trust me–it works!! This is a different way of presenting yourself that yields excellent results for students and others. Personally, I don’t like Objectives because they seem to limit you to the job mentioned therein. With a profile, you can put to work buzz words like those shown below to give a prospective employer….

Measuring Macro Concepts

Inflation refers to a rise in the general level of prices of the goods and services we purchase for a period of time, so it is important to determine the inflation rate of our economy in a timely basis. This is to determine what courses of action we should take, including demands for higher wages, increased prices, and more. The current inflation rate of the U.S. for the month of January is about 4.28%, and is projected to go down little by little in the following months (Foldvary). The inflation rate need not be a worry for us, but we should be aware about it. As of now, we are in a time of stable prices, but these prices may change depending on various situations, which could affect….

Book Review: To Room Nineteen

In this way, Suntan’s high and low points are drastically influenced by her social and physical situations. Suntan’s life Is sprinkled with a series of high points all centered on her level of independence at that particular time.

Suntan’s next moment of relief ensues when she comes across Mrs..

Fish Oil Health Benefits

Fish oil health benefits are exaggerated, says a new study appearing in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. And yet, it warns, increased consumer demand for fish oil is pushing fish populations to the brink. Medical scientists from St. Michael’s Hospital and the University of Toronto have teamed with researchers from the University of British Columbia’s Fisheries Centre and author Farley Mowat to closely examine the effects of health claims with regard to seafood. For years, international agencies concerned with health and nutrition have promoted seafood consumption. “Our concern is that fish stocks are under extreme pressure globally and that studies are still urgently required to define precisely who will benefit from fish oil,” says Dr. David J. A. Jenkins, a doctor at St. Michael’s Hospital and a professor….

Kants Deontology

Introduction The word Deon is a Greek word and it means duty. According to the deontological theory actions are wrong or right in themselves, quite distant from their effect. In this theory certain actions are allowed or prevented by the argument that each of the action is either right or wrong in accordance with the ethical obligations. So those who believe in using a deontological theory would bring in consideration the basic rights and duties of groups or individuals and act according to their moral duties. Immanuel Kant the great philosopher, who had lived in the 18th century, proposed the work which is used for the reference of deontology. According to him each individual has got self-respect and dignity in inheritance. He believes that no one has right….

Students Must Not Take Part in Politics

STUDENT MUST NOT TAKE PART IN POLITICS Albert Einstein observed: “It is the duty of every citizen according to his best capacity to give validity to his conviction in political affairs. ”  I’m sure, this pretty much sums up why we’re debating on this topic today, since we students are considered to have become “politically aware” by the age of 18. So, what exactly do we understand by the word “politics”. Politics is the art or science of influencing people on a civic, or individual level, says most of us present here. I’msure all of it sounds really great but in reality, politics has been synonymous with violence and vandalism ever since its origin, and associating students with it only worsens the scenario. Students are mainly at a tender age and cannot….

Case Study

   Mini Case 2 Suppose you decide (as did Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg) to start a company. Your product is a software platform that integrates a wide range of media devices, including laptop computers, desktop computers, digital video recorders, and cell phones. Your initial market is the student body at your university. Once you have established your company and set up procedures for operating it, you plan to expand to other colleges in the area and eventually to go nationwide. At some point, hopefully sooner rather than later, you plan to go public with an IPO and then to buy a yacht and take off for the South Pacific to indulge in your passion for underwater photography. With these issues in mind, you need to answer for….

Odeon Cinema Pestle Analysis

The benefit of a PESTLE analysis is that it allows you to complete a basic audit on an organisations position in relation to the macro environment It can then go to influence a number of business decisions within the organisation . I would also use this tool to complete the strength and weaknesses of a SWOT analysis which I believe sits well alongside this tool. I believe the PESTLE framework is a good way to highlight the potential threats to a business yet my concern is that the data collated could be only one side of a coin.

For PESTLE analysis to be balanced it may need a ‘group’ to complete independent reports and then share them together to get a more accurate assessment. I also read up….
