...An article (abbreviated art) is a word (or prefix or suffix) that is with a noun to indicate the type of reference being made by the noun. Articles specify the grammatical definiteness of the noun, in some languages extending to volume or numerical scope. The articles in the English language are the and a/an, and (in some contexts) some. 'An' and 'a' are modern forms of the Old English 'an', which in Anglian dialects was the number 'one' (compare 'on', in Saxon dialects) and survived into Modern Scots as the number 'ane'. Both 'on' (respelled 'one' by the Normans) and 'an' survived into Modern English, with 'one' used as the number and 'an' ('a', before nouns that begin with a consonant sound) as an indefinite article. Traditionally in English, an article is usually considered to be a type of adjective. In some languages, articles are a special part of speech, which cannot easily be combined with other parts of speech. It is also possible for articles to be part of another part of speech category such as a determiner, an English part of speech category that combines articles and demonstratives (such as 'this' and 'that'). In languages that employ articles, every common noun, with some exceptions, is expressed with a certain definiteness (e.g., definite or indefinite), just as many languages express every noun with a certain grammatical number (e.g., singular or plural). Every noun must be accompanied by the article, if any, corresponding to its definiteness, and the lack of...

A Month Without Computer Usage

...A Month Without Computer Usage Every aspect of our lives requires the need for technology one way or another. Breaking apart from an old habit is extremely tough especially for these three students of Carleton College who decided to take a new challenge into consideration. Their challenge was to survive a month without computers. They knew it was going to be tough since finals were fast approaching. Despite this they decided to document their upcoming journey for their film class, they have now become “Disconnected” meaning no email, no Facebook, no Twitter, no web surfing and absolutely no Googleing for researching their upcoming term papers. Andrew, Caitlin and Chel need a new way of communicating with others, as well as finding a new way to type assignments without a computer. They will need to learn how to do research from books and other reliable sources like articles. Everything seem to be going effortlessly for the first couple of days, until Andrews teacher notifies him that his grade is suffering due to the lack of computer usage to turn in the assignments. Meanwhile Caitlen Magnusson tires a different approach; she starts to type out her essay in the typewriter at the campus library where she took a fair amount of time organizing and structuring her essay since there is no way to rearrange, relocate, delete or paste any words on a typewriter. In the other hand Chel has gather a couple of friends to help him cope with the situation. In my option...

Cell Phone Usage in the Classroom

...Cell Phone Usage in the Classroom Khaleid Codrington Introduction to Sociology Professor Baber December 20, 2013 Most college students use cell phones. Some use them in class. College takes an incredible amount of commitment in order to be successful. When cell phones are used in class, there is a possibility of them being a distraction to those who are trying to put their best foot forward and end the term successful. Cell phones are most certainly a distraction in the classroom setting. This topic appeals to me because I was able to find a great deal of information on why cell phones are a disturbance to college classrooms. Cell phone usage in classrooms as a topic is sociologically important because of the fact that cell phones are used by almost all college students. Mobile phones are very technologically savvy. With some phones you can check the news, your e-mail or even surf the internet. People need a way to stay in contact with another, but during class time is a deterrent to the scholastic plight of fellow students. As time goes by, cell phones become more and more popular with the people. The fact that the technology of cell phone capability progresses quickly over time is a major change in society. In the early nineties the cell phone was not popular. At best people had a beeper holstered to their hip in case of emergencies. Beepers were unable to make calls as well so there was a need to......

...to video-conferencing, videophony and TV on demand etc. All these are very popular nowadays over the internet as internet capabilities (Pinhanez, 2011). These have attracted more customers to internet and the numbers of internet users are increased dramatically over the last ten years, which is evident from the following statistics of world internet usage and population. [pic] Table 1: World internet usage and population statistics Source: Reference (Internetworldstats, 2011) The table shows that the growth rate in developing areas are very huge for the last ten years compared to the developed nations. The overall percentage of growth is 444.8%, shows the popularity and importance of internet in the current world economy. This has initiated the development of new bandwidth to cope up with the increased need of companies and people and also to produce fast and real-time responses to the needs of the customers. New hardware is developed to support the new bandwidths. In early years, the internet and bandwidths were increasingly reliant on the written languages and this forced many users to windup the internet usages. However, the academic people, who have good command over the written language, are increasingly connected over the internet in early stages (Pinhanez, 2011). In recent years the internet applications have witnessed a shift from the written language to www – browsers, which require lesser skills. This attracted many organisations to internet......

Cellphones Usage

...become easier for large groups of people to communicate with each other as well. This is evident in the way some social upheavals were facilitated with the use of mobile phones. For example, you can access social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook from your phone. When a protest or some other activity is taking place, you can get inform using mobile phones. The cell phone market is also one of the largest business sectors in North America, leading to billions of dollars each year in consumer spending and technological investment. The related products that now offer internet and email access from almost anywhere on the planet have led to a far greater feeling of connectedness between people who live all around the world. Cellphone usage has also led to huge changes in public security. People can now call from help wherever they are, but the greater change is that emergency responders frequently have laptops in their cars that are in constant communication with each other and their dispatchers. These computers would be practically useless without their cellphones that keep them in continuous high speed communication. Although mobile phones have brought a lot of positive developments, they also have some negative social consequences. Many cell phone users spend several hours a day in them. Time that could be socialized and interacted with someone in person, instead it has become time to use cell phones. This interaction leads to less staff, and can harm your......

...Can the Brilliant Jerk Be Managed Effectively? By James Haskett JAMES HESKETT James Heskett is a Baker Foundation Professor, Emeritus, at Harvard Business School. ORIGINAL ARTICLE The annoying employee who makes his numbers while alienating those around him will gain needed attention in the coming months with at least one book about to be published on the subject. This is an age-old problem that most managers handle badly. You know the story by now. It concerns high-performing employees, known by some as "stars" and by others as "destructive heroes" or "brilliant jerks," those who generate a great deal of business while creating problems for colleagues. They are demanding to the point of being abusive, they make promises to clients that their colleagues cannot meet, they take too much credit for success, and they generally are unable to adhere to commonly shared values of members of the organization. The management response to this kind of situation is too often ineffective. By their own admission, their managers are reluctant to rock the boat as long as the numbers continue to be good. In doing so, they underestimate the costs to the organization, including the loss of other talent. And when they do act, they do so much too slowly, often after most of the damage has been done. Jack Welch has written about the phenomenon of what he calls "jerks" or "bullies" from his own experience. At GE they were referred to as a "Type 4" manager, "the person who delivers on......

Helmet Usage

...people into controlled situations that actually simulates an accident and how prevent it; because yes they can be avoided! In “10 Common Motorcycles Accidents”, by Wes Siler (2013) describes several misadventures and also how to really avoid them, teaching to the riders the skills that can be done and the knowledge needed to prevent real accidents. This is better than just say people under age need a helmet, age does not measures your motorcycle riding, but a professional can. Consequently to what the professional said, you have the enough potential to decide if you want to wear a helmet or not. The Government thinks that making motorcycles riders to wear a helmet mandatory will give the solution to prevent deaths and people injured. In the article “Hitting the Open Road”, by Doug Shinkle (2015) mentions that motorcycle riders deaths have increased in a 138% since 1997; now, it comes to my mind how to really avoid these accidents? Making laws about helmets are not the solution, teaching and educating drivers and riders is the best option to solve the problem from the root. In other words, we need to star with ourselves preparing and learning the technique of riding, everything that really comes with it. I know that helmet is a priority safety wear, and I do not disagree with that, but first of all, why only helmet is mandatory? There are several parts of your body that are also important. People would say that the head is the most important of your body and that is why......

Helmut Usage

...Helmet Usage: Should It Be Required for Adults Gregory Boderck June 4th, 2011 Strayer University Abstract There is proof to present and statistical research to render that a motorcyclist wearing a helmet will not prevent head injuries or death in a serious crash. Using several studies provided by Charles Branas and Margaret Knudson, I will show that individual states with and without helmet laws show little difference in the effectiveness of a helmet in a crash. Many riders that I, myself have ridden with would rather have the choice of utilizing a helmet or not. Reasoning behind the abolishment of universal helmet law will be provided from a report filed by the National Transportation Safety Board, showing that helmets do not always protect adult riders in crashes. In some instances, helmets restrict a rider’s peripheral vision, as well as restrict their hearing depending on the style of the helmet used. Using a report written by Andreas Muller, PhD, I will stimulate the audience to believe that any type of helmet laws for adults will not reduce the number of deaths to motorcyclists. Helmet Usage: Should It Be Required for Adults Motorcycle helmet laws are not in effect in all of the fifty states. Over the last several decades motorcyclists’ deaths and severe injuries have increased significantly. There are many factors to account for the increase of injury and/or death to riders. Research has previously shown that a motorcyclists’ helmet will not protect an......

...This article is published in a peer-reviewed section of the Utrecht Law Review Four Case Studies on Corporate Social Responsibility: Do Conflicts Affect a Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Policy? Cristina A. Cedillo Torres, Mercedes Garcia-French, Rosemarie Hordijk, Kim Nguyen, Lana Olup* 1. Introduction 1.1. Background and objectives This article will discuss the different Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) issues that emerged within ­ four multinationals (Apple, Canon, Coca-Cola and Walmart). There is no clear definition of CSR. In Corporate Social Responsibility, Legal and semi-legal frameworks supporting CSR Lambooy gives an r o ­ verview of several definitions of CSR.1 The European Commission defines CSR as ‘the ­ esponsibility of enterprises for their impacts on society’.2 This is the definition which is the most suitable for the c ­ ontext of the article’s research question. As this article will focus on companies from the US and Japan, the authors also provide an overview of the focus on CSR from the US and Japanese perspective. In the US there is no governmental regulation regarding CSR or business best practices. Instead, according to findings from Bennett American, companies have a marked tendency to use codes of conduct.3 The American CSR perspective could be described as following a principles-based approach, with codes of conduct that prescribe values and principles which company members as a whole should aspire to......

...Rebuttal Article Rebuttal Jeff Holliday BCOM/275 Article Rebuttal In a rebuttal to the article “Obama is a great president; we’re just a lousy country, I would like to analyze the reliability, credibility, and validity of the data used by the author, as well as identify any logical fallacies in the argument. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, in 2009, when President Obama signed the stimulus package into law, he promised a six percent unemployment rate by this time. Granted, a drop has been seen in the unemployment, but what the author does not seem to realize is the number of Americans who have stopped looking for work. The Department of Labor has reported an unemployment rate of 8.2 for the month of March 2012. The actual unemployment or U-6 rate as of March is hovering at 14.5 percent. Many argue that it has become so easy to gain government benefits, that looking for work is no longer a priority. The President needs to limit benefits to push people to search for work or take jobs that may not be their first choice. Unfortunately, many Americans have become so discouraged with the lack of performance from the current administration that the author has come to this conclusion. The author of this article has a clear bias to what the President has or has not accomplished to date. Fallacies used within the article would include generalizing Americans as lazy and obese. He states the Obama has given Americans all of the tools to succeed, but Americans just......
