The home front played a major role in world war two for America. from women in the factories minorities in the special military branches and propaganda raising profits and materials for the war effort the average American citizen played just as an important role as a solider in world war two.
Women gained rights during this time since all the men were at war. Jobs in the factory were needed to produce different materials for the war such as bullets and tanks document B talks about Rosie the riveter an iconic figure during this time showing women in the factory system. Also during this time the role of entertainment fell on the women leading to the creation of women sports leagues shown in document A by Wilma Briggs talking about her time in the women’s leagues baseball. Women also helped pump the economy by becoming the higher consumers keeping money in circulation spending there new higher wages.
Minorities played a different role at home the Germans and Italian citizens were not persecuted for what their governments were doing. While the Japanese citizens were held in relocation camps since the American citizens assumed they would be spies for their home country. This can be seen from the poem in document D that circulated around the Arizona relocation camps. For African Americans however special units in the army were created document H shows the Tuskegee air man which was an all-African American squad. In the army branch African American squads got the jobs that left them defenseless but protect the other troops the jobs no one wants.
Propaganda played a major role in rallying the people to join the army or in posters such as the one in document F raising funds by buying war bonds or in document G raising materials for the war effort. Propaganda circulated on both sides of the war as seen in document E with German propaganda. Most propaganda was to rally for materials and funds but some was to warn against the enemy such as Walt Disney’s cartoons…

A widow, Priya was taking care of her five-year-old son and her ageing parents on her monthly salary of nearly Rs 6000. But after working for nearly three years as a trainee operator at Nokia’s mobile phone plant near Chennai, Priya was laid off in April earlier this year. “With my Nokia salary, I fed my family and sent my child to school. I would have been confirmed in three months and my salary would have increased to Rs 10,800. But that job never became permanent,” Priya said.
Similarly, 21-year-old Uma Maheshwari who was once a contract worker at the Nokia factory was fired in January after nearly two years into the job. Though she works part-time as an insurance agent, a steady job – favourable for women – has been hard to come by. “With Nokia, there was always security. Even if you couldn’t make it to the bus stand, they will come to your doorstep and pick you up. No other employee can give such security like Nokia,” she said.
The major step was taken after global software major Microsoft, which acquired the Finland-based Nokia’s global devices and services business, including assets in India for $7.2 billion April 25, decided to suspend manufacturing handsets from its Chennai plant though it could not take possession of it due to legal battles over a tax notice from the Tamil Nadu government and the Supreme Court in March. The government put a freeze on Nokia’s assets due to a tax dispute over an estimated Rs 23,000 crore.

My name is Rose I am 25 years old and the year is 1865. I reside in New York, which I find such a beautiful place to call home. There are so many opportunities for people here. It is hard to believe 20 years ago I was fighting for my life to get here. The year was 1845 my family and I were forced to relocate from our country Ireland because of what was called the great potato rot. (Oracle Think Quest, 2010) Our crops had remained undependable for some time and many families were starving and left with only one choice of relocating with hopes for a better life. I will never forget when we began our journey to leave Ireland and start anew life in the United States of America. This was referred to by many as the American Wake. (The Kinsella Homepage, 2008) There were hundreds of us that left Ireland by boat. The ships we were traveling by were being called coffin ships; because so many became ill with disease during our journey. Many of us were very scared we wouldn’t be alive to make it to the U.S. Some decided to stay in Canada during our journey and begin their life there. While others like myself went with their families to the U.S. settling in places such as Philadelphia, Boston, and New York. I will never forget the feeling all shared when seeing the statue of liberty, it was like she was welcoming all of us. By 1847 52,000 Irish had arrived in the U.S. Upon entering New York we were met by Irish runners offering us room and board. We stayed in places called boarding houses in Manhattan. (The History Place, 2000) The U.S. offered our men many job opportunities. I remember shortly after entering the U.S. my father started working a hard labor job doing canal building, while my brothers were working in lumbering and civil construction works. My mother got a job as a chamber maid while others than came with us were cooks and caretakers of children. It was a breath of fresh air since there was no money to be made in Ireland in those last months prior to…
The Three Theories
PSY331: Psychology of Learning
March 10, 2014
There are varied psychological theories that specify the educational method in kith and kin. The acquisition of behavior will occur in several circumstances, conditions or setting. Neobehaviorism, conditioning and conditioning are the 3 most eminent models for learning. The three models have different principles that provide an explanation for the learning process and acquisition of behavior. For instance, classical conditioning emphasizes on stimulus and responses (Sonia, 2008).
On the added hand, operant conditioning involves all-encompassing modifications in adjustment to crop an accustomed behavioral attribute. Renowned theorists are abaft these cerebral models. Ivan Pavlov is a part of the lot of notable theorists in psychology. He was the active force abaft the development of the classical conditioning model. The three theories accept all-encompassing applications in acquirements environments. It is appropriately ascendant to appraise them while as well allegory their resemblances and appropriate attributes. Human behavior has absolute implications on the acquirements process.
The classical conditioning approach provides a framework for the acquirements action application bang and responses. According to this theory, a codicillary bang leads into an actual bang (Pearson, 2012). The actual bang encompasses a by itself occurring action such as pain, ache or thirst. In contrast, the codicillary bang mostly involves a bogus basic such as food. The main principle behind this theory is that the conditional component triggers an unconditional stimulus. In precise terms, an artificial process leads into a naturally occurring process. From another perspective, a conditional response can trigger an unconditional response. An example is when an individual sweats after continuous exposure to heat (O’Reilly, 2011)….

Fear to Achieve Goals
In A Tale of Two Cities, Dickens emphasized that violence and fear in many ways. Throughout history it has been shown that fear can be used to manipulate others. This is the main point that Dickens focuses on when he uses fear in his novel. First we see it between the Evermonde brothers and the peasant brother and sister. Next it is shown as Dickens describes the state of the peasants and how the aristocrats have been treated. Then finally we see how brutality of the revolutionaries towards the aristocrats. Dickens uses these examples to show how fear is too often used to control others and achieve goals of the revolution.
Dickens’ first example of violence is when the Evermonde brothers show “no touch of pity” when speaking of the “creature dying there”, or the peasant boy who was stowed away. This is when the peasant boy came to save his sister from being abused and killed by the brothers. The brothers used the fear of the peasant’s sister being raped which prevented him from retaliating towards the Evermonde brothers ever again. Dr. Manette was even fearful of the men when they said, “’We have been to your residence…in the hope of overtaking you’”, with a manner that was “imperious.” One of his biggest fears was that “they were armed.” The men approached Dr. Manette with a threatening conduct. This shows that they have no limits to who they will try to intimidate by using fear.
Another example of fear is when the aristocrats began to mistreat the lower class, and the justice system started to fall apart. In this time period the wealthy could get away with murder as long as they had a good name. For example, when Marquis Evermonde runs over a young child, killing the child, he simply “threw out a gold coin for the valet to pick up”. The father throws the coin back into the Marquis carriage. When the Marquis says “he should be crushed under the wheels,” he is talking about Gaspard. The…
The Contribution of Enterprise Systems
3/1/2014Enterprise systems are business-critical software applications that integrate information together from within and between organizations. This support is done by reporting data, on information flow, and business processes. Enterprise systems applications can be customized to fit any business need; the database collects information from different departments within businesses such as, sales and marketing, manufacturing and products, human resources and finance and accounting.
Leading enterprise software suppliers include SAP, Oracle, IBM, Infor Global Solutions, and Microsoft (Laudon, Laudon,2013). Although initially designed to automate the firm’s internal “back-office” business processes enterprise systems have become more externally oriented and capable of communicating with customers, suppliers, and other entities (Laudon, Laudon,2013).
Management can use enterprise systems to obtain information at anytime to see how their business is operating, to help or make better decisions, better serve their customers, or to increase performance and sales. This leads a business to run effectively and efficiently.
Enterprise systems provide value both by increasing operational efficiency and firm-wide information to help managers make better decisions. Human resources shows correlations between investment in employee training and quality, measures the company-wide cost of delivering services to employees and measures the effectiveness of employee recruitment, compensation, and training. Implementing enterprise systems also help firms respond quickly to customer’s request of information, or products. Because the system integrates orders, manufacturing, and delivery data, manufacturing is better…
Remain calm. As soon as you realize you’re in a conflict with someone, suggest that both of you take some time to cool off, and then agree on a time and a place to discuss and resolve your conflict.
Make a list of your concerns. Before you meet with the other person, sit down and write out exactly what you think led to the conflict because this might lead to a conflict resolution.
Allow the other person to talk. You will still be able to make all of your points, but make sure to let the other person state his or her concerns as well. Let them talk, even if you disagree, because interrupting will only add to the conflict.
Ask questions. If you don’t understand the other person’s points, then ask him or her a follow-up question. Make a point to wait until there’s a pause in the conversation, so you know the other person has finished stating his or her case and he or she doesn’t think you’re interrupting.
Take breaks. If you feel like one of you, or both of you, are getting too emotional, feel free to take as many breaks as you both need to. Take as much time as you need as soon as voices are raised — before anything too hurtful is said.
Stay away from negative talk. Focus on the positive things instead of saying things like, “can’t,” “don’t” or “no.” The negative words will only make the conflict harder to resolve.
Be aware of your emotions. If you feel you’re getting angry, take a break or figure out a way to calm down. Take a drink of water before you say anything you might regret.
Compromise. In many conflicts, no one person is completely wrong, so try and find a compromise that you can both be happy with.
Find something you can agree on. There might be a conflict that is just not possible to resolve in 1 discussion. Think of something to do with the conflict that you both can agree on, and agree to come back to the topic later. It may take more than 1 discussion to resolve the conflict effectively.
Course Syllabus BUSI 604
The purpose of the course is to prepare managers to compete successfully in the global economy. The rapidly changing economic, political, technological and cultural environments will be studied as a foundation for understanding how to compete in differing environments, utilizing the resources available to the enterprise in managing the various functional areas of business.Rationale
Global interdependence among nations of the world is a reality. Trade barriers between nations have fallen, and trade blocs are rapidly forming as world leaders realize that there is more to be gained by collaborating with each other than by remaining economically isolated. Multinational corporations are playing a major role in this accelerating regional and global economic integration. The management of a company having international operations differs in many important ways from that of a company whose operations are confined to one nation. A major emphasis of this course will be to demonstrate how management activities in a global enterprise differ from those in a purely domestic firm.

Week 2 Business Research Ethics
RES351/Quantitative Analysis for Business
February 9, 2014
Citigroup, Inc. is a well diverse financial services company, which provides various financial needs to corporate customers, as well as individual consumers. Citigroup divides the services offered into three business segments, which are Corporate and Investment Banking, Global Wealth Management, and Global Consumer. They also have several umbrellas, which include CitiFinancial, Citibank, Primerica, Solomon Smith Barney, Citi, and Banamex, have many years of innovation and success within their industry. Even though they have many successes, they have not been excluded from investigations, corporate scandals, or legal settlements. For example, in 2001, an investigation started through the New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer office, with claims of potential conflicts of interest within Citigroup’s investment banking practices. In 2003, the investigation had been resolved with a settlement of $400 million paid to consumers, also requiring Solomon Smith Barney to adopt corporate changes and a series of reforms.
Many Wall Street securities firms, including Citigroup, Inc. were accused of misleading investors. The securities firms’ research divisions were responsible for the misconduct. The analysts sold stock they knew were not of good deals based on their biased research. Legitimate research had been completed, yet ignored by the analysts because of possible backlash from the investment bankers. To ensure analysts sold stocks that were not of good value, the investments departments within these companies offered bribery of stock options, as well as additional bonuses. This was fueled by corporate greed and showed a zero regard for ethics and good business practices. This investigation exposed how the research and stock ratings provided by the analysts were not presented with honestly.
