Globalization is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas, and other aspects of culture.[1][2] Globalization describes the interplay across cultures of macro-social forces. These forces include religion, politics, and economics. Globalization can erode and universalize the characteristics of a local group.[3] Advances in transportation and telecommunications infrastructure, including the rise of the Internet, are major factors in globalization, generating further interdependence of economic and cultural activities.[4]Religious movements were among the earliest cultural forces to globalize, spread by force, migration, evangelists, imperialists and traders. Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and more recently sects such as Mormonism have taken root and influenced endemic cultures in places far from their origins. On average,
Antarctica is the coldest, driest and windiest continent, and has the highest average elevation of all the continents. Since there is little precipitation, except at the coasts, the interior of the continent is technically the largest desert in the world. There are no permanent human residents. Only cold-adapted plants and animals survive there, including penguins, fur seals, mosses, lichen, and many types of algae.The Antarctic Treaty was signed in 1959 by twelve countries; to date, forty-six countries have signed the treaty. The treaty prohibits military activities and mineral mining, supports scientific research, and protects the continent's ecozone. Ongoing experiments are conducted by more than 4,000 scientists of many nationalities and with different research interests.Centered asymmetrically around the South Pole and largely south of the Antarctic Circle, Antarctica is the southernmost continent and is surrounded by the Southern Ocean; alternatively, it may be considered to be…...

There is no risk to the company by leaving Alison in her current role and the company would be better off given her past track record of performance. There should be consequences for the dishonesty, but Alison’s track record and loyalty to the company should compensate for her mistake. Samantha should document the findings in Alison’s personnel file, but she should also take this opportunity to encourage Alison to complete the remaining 18 credits so she can obtain her MBA degree. ISSUE 2 Go Ape is a growing company that is looking to expand to international markets. Obviously before entering any additional markets an organization should do its homework on those markets but this is especially true when entering international markets. As Go Ape weighs international expansion they should consider the environment that they will be facing in the new locations to gain the resources that it needs to run the business. Jones (2010) considers three factors of the environment and their dichotomies, environmental complexity, environmental dynamism, and environmental richness (p. 334). Jones (2010) describes environmental complexity as “the strength, number and interconnectedness of the specific and general forces that an organization has to manage” (p. 334). There could be government or political interests that they have never had to consider, new tax......

The Go-Between

...”The Go-Between”-by Ali Smith The British writer, Ali Smith, has found much inspiration in Article thirteen in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which says that everybody has the right to freedom of movement within the borders of each state. Approximately seventy years ago, The United Nations took a moral stand against human rights crimes and adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a proclamation of thirty human rights that everyone should be entitled to, starting memorably with Article one: “All human beings are born free and equal.” She wrote the short story “The Go-Between” to celebrate the anniversary of the proclamation. The protagonist of the short story is a 33-year-old man. He was originally from Cameroon, but in the story he is in Ceuta in Northern Morocco, where he helps people cross the border fence to Spain. He is therefore a so-called “border crosser”, a mediator between the French doctors and the refugees, or as the title implies the “Go-Between”. The story focuses on problem that occurs when the refugees who have been forbidden to cross the border, gets help from our protagonist; this ordeal is in no way in accordance to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article fourteen of the declaration, further states that everyone has the right to seek asylum from persecution. This is not accommodated in this story where the refugees are sent back to their original countries as soon as they arrive in Europe. Because of the help that the......

...“#McDStories” hashtag, it expected to users to share favourite memories from the world’s largest restaurant chain. Instead, critics of the fast-food chain hijacked the hashtag and used it to pillory McDonald’s, accusing it of peddling unhealthy, unappetising food. The incident was the latest example of how well-intentioned social media marketing can backfire, putting a company on the defensive. While sites such as Facebook and Twitter provide unparalleled access to customers, allowing companies to interact with fans, they also provide a forum for dissenters. McDonald’s was monitoring the conversation on Twitter, and quickly took down its promoted tweets. “With all social media campaigns, we include contingency plans, should the conversation not go as planned,” Rick Wion, social media director for McDonald’s USA, told the FT. “The ability to change midstream helped this small blip from becoming something larger.” Yet the damage was already done, and the episode became a cautionary tale for companies. McDonald’s scored points for being quick to respond. “You need to be on it 24/7,” says Ann Lewnes, chief marketing officer at Adobe, the software company. “That’s one of the biggest changes to marketing today. You don’t just put a campaign out there. At any given moment, someone is saying something about your company and product, and you have to be listening.” Because McDonald’s was listening, it says the damage was limited, with the #McDStories parodies accounting for only 2......

Drilling for oil within our country may seem easier and less expensive, however it is a short term solution; we must not rely or assume that fossil fuels are an unlimited resource. We must consider alternatives for fuel and energy while recognizing the effects of pollution on the ozone layer. As we explore different types of renewable energy resources, we must be sure that they are safe on the environment and safe to use in homes or automobiles. Another aspect to consider is the availability of the resource. We do not want to waste time exploring resources which are not going to be readily available or resources that will diminish. The need for fossil fuels in the near future is still a necessity until a transformation can be made to an alternative source. There will always be a demand for fossil fuels, the goal is to reduce to use of fossil fuels as the burning of these fuels emits pollution into our atmosphere. The advantages of fossil fuels are that they are already readily available and distributed worldwide, which is very convenient. You can get gasoline and oil at any gas station and even some grocery stores, across the entire United States. Another......

...capability to produce international products How ready are we if sales increased by 20, 40, or even 100%? How would we respond if one month’s production level had to be produced in half the normal time? Do we have enough man-power and trained personnel to make rapid technical modifications and respond to R & D chal-lenges? Are we prepared to document our product’s features, maintenance and repair record? Although we have answers to many of the queries above, unfortunately though, we don’t have positive and confident answers to all the questions. More to the point, international expansion may serve to avert DataClear's attention from its core customers and market. Therefore, under the circumstances, I strongly feel that we are not ready to go full-scale global just yet. Next, I would like to analyze our immediate competitor VisiDat, the trigger of our discussion that would eventually happen at some later time, its strengths and weaknesses, and assess how much of an impact this firm will have on us, and in the international market. Susan’s previous bitter experience of a foreign competitor invading the domestic market has prompted her fears that the same will be true with VisiDat. In my opinion, Susan's experience is not conclusive and it does not guarantee that it might happen again in the data analysis market. I believe that the published information on VisiDat is insufficient so far, and also not reliable. We must try to obtain more facts regarding who has......

...Go Green Marijuana is a harmful plant; at least, that’s what we are told, right? That this is a horrible substance that is never to be found in society, but what if it is not as harmful as other substances used my millions daily without question? Many people conclude that marijuana is harmful in many ways, including brain damage, damage to the reproductive system, and weakening of the immune system. People against marijuana attempt to convince others that marijuana is a "gateway drug" that leads the users to venture into much harder drugs. I believe that research to support anything can be found if one is looking hard enough, but that the fallacy of this conclusion is due to research seeking facts to support an already-assumed conclusion. Marijuana has been part of human society since the beginning of civilization. Indian priests wrote about its use in religious ceremonies, and Chinese emperors wrote about its medicinal use (UXL). However, since the beginning of the 20th century, most countries have enacted laws against the cultivation, possession or transfer of cannabis. These laws have impacted adversely on the cannabis plant's cultivation for non-recreational purposes, but there are many regions where, under certain circumstances, handling of cannabis is legal or licensed. Many jurisdictions have lessened the penalties for possession of small quantities of cannabis, so that it is punished by confiscation and sometimes a fine, rather than imprisonment, focusing more on...

More over a connection that is wired and in someway to the device that’s receiving the internet signal. Now enter the existence of mobile broadband which allows near landline speeds to a mobile device. Mobile broadband gives a user the ability to send and receive data on the go. Data has been able to be transmitted wirelessly for sometime now. The only difference between then and now is the increases in speed that has come with the maturation of technology. There are a few pieces that dictate the speed of a wireless device. One piece is the network at which the wireless signal is traveling on.

Miles to Go

...MILES TO GO These CEOs say IT can go much further in helping them solve their business problems BY JOHN FOLEY WITH THE CEOs OF FIVE MAJOR COMPANIES sitting across from him, Microsoft group VP Jeff Raikes recently described how he uses three tablet PCs in his daily work, keeping his data synced up via Microsoft software. The place was a conference room at Microsoft’s headquarters; the subject, IT and business productivity. It was an unscripted anecdote of how one busy high-tech exec stays at the top of his game—and a stark reminder of the gap that separates power users like Raikes from millions of information workers. The discussion came at the tail end of Microsoft’s annual CEO Summit, attended by about 100 chief executives on May 21 and 22. They had gotten a full dose from Microsoft’s senior managers on the company’s business-technology strategy and philosophy—and dinner at the home of chairman and chief software architect Bill Gates. Each attendee was given a new tablet PC loaded with the latest Microsoft productivity tools to use during the conference and, if they chose, to take with them. Yet, as impressed as they might be with the gadgetry and software demonstrations, the CEOs at Raikes’ roundtable discussion— representing Accenture, Best Buy, Flextronics, Premera Blue Cross, and Siemens USA—made it clear that neither Microsoft nor the rest of the IT industry has satisfied all their companies’ needs when it comes to using IT to solve......

Because the concentration of hydrogen ions (H+) fluctuates the pH decreases slightly in the tissues and increases slightly in the lungs. The pH range of blood is 7.35 to 7.45 and is maintained by the buffering action of the dissociation products of H2CO3 as well as by the blood's protein buffers. 14 Assignment: Write the equations illustrating oxygen and carbon dioxide transport in such a way that you show 1) What happens in the lungs. 2) What happens in the systemic tissues.

The Go-Between

...The Go-Between This short story ”The Go-Between” is written by Ali Smith in 2009. The short story was written with a bunch of other stories, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the United Nations’ adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The narrator in the short story is a 33 years old former microbiologist from Cameroun, that has ran from his own country and now works as a go-between guide for refugees, that’s seeking a normal life in Europe. He is situated in the Spanish town Ceuta in Morocco, where he is creating contact between the refugees and the international doctors, which are helping. The narrator has tried fleeing a lot of times himself, but it hasn’t worked yet. A lot of the refugees are hit by “the Spanish blindness”, that means they just focus on Spain and getting there. They have paid whatsoever for getting there. “The Network” is what the refugees are paying – paying to getting to Spain. The Network isn’t trusted though. ”All the men in this building suffer from it, Spanish Blindness. All you can see is Spain. All you can think is Spain tonight, Spain tonight. They have paid all their money to the Network, and the Network has promised a boat, maybe tonight. This boat never comes.” (p.4, l.73-75) The way of writing in this short story plays a big deal. The author, Ali Smith, gets his message through via a very directly way, by using a first person narrator. He’s is taking use of short sentences, which is making the reader feeling more......

...Case Study 1 1. How should Jennifer go about making her decision? Jennifer should evaluate each proposal and use criteria that will fairly indicate what project would be best to invest additional money in to for future growth and savings. She can use project selection and develop a set of criteria against which the project will be evaluated, list assumptions that will be used as the basis of the project, gather data and information, and evaluate each project against the determined criteria. 2. What kind of additional data or information should she collect? I believe that she should request information or data regarding the scope, schedule, cost, and customer satisfaction expectations of the projects and their goals. I have explained each below for better understanding. Scope – All the work that must be done to produce all the project deliverables that meet the customer requirements and acceptance criteria and accomplish the project objective. Schedule – A timetable for a project indicating when activities are planned or need to be started and finished. Cost – The overall cost it will require to complete the project in its entirety. Customer Satisfaction – After the project has been completed the customer feels as if they have received the services expected and the project was completed to their standards and expectations. However I know these can be considered restraints and that should be a heavily weighed factor in the decision making in the end. 3. What exactly......

Go Variatns

...variants[edit] The difficulty in defining the rules of Go has led to the creation of many subtly different rulesets. They vary in areas like scoring method, ko, suicide, handicap placement, and how neutral points are dealt with at the end. These differences are usually small enough to maintain the character and strategy of the game, and are typically not considered variants. Different rulesets are explained in Rules of Go. In some of the examples below, the effects of rule differences on actual play are minor, but the tactical consequences are substantial. Tibetan Go[edit] The starting position for Tibetan Go Tibetan Go is played on a 17×17 board, and starts with six stones (called Bo) from each color placed on the third line as shown. White makes the first move.[1] There is a unique ko rule: a stone may not be played at an intersection where the opponent has just removed a stone. This ko rule is so different from other major rulesets that it alone significantly changes the character of the game. For instance, snapbacks must be delayed by at least one move, allowing an opponent the chance to create life. Finally, a player who occupies or surrounds all four corner points (the 1-1 points) receives a bonus of 40 points, and if he controls the center point also, he receives a further bonus of 10 points.
