It is generally agreed today that national service is compulsory for each SPM leaver. National service was first started around the year of 2004. The SPM leavers are randomly selected to enter the national service. As directed by the Ministry of Education of Malaysia,it is compulsory for each selected youth to participate in this programme. Actions will be taken if they do not participate in it. I personally agreed that compulsory national service is good for the youth. One must admit that national service can bring so much benefits for them.

Let us start by considering the facts. The youth can fill up their time by participating in the national service. They can benefit their free time after their SPM exam with lots of activities arranged in the programme. Rather that loitering around, doing window shoppings, watching television, the youths can participate in many fun activities during the national service. They will not waste their time doing some useless activities. During the activities in national service, they will gain lots of knowledge, improve their health, gain new friends, and many more. Time is gold. So,the youths should always rember that time is so precious for them to fill it with useful activities.

Furthemore,we should not forget that by participating in national service, the youths will receive a lot of experiences. During the programme, they will be taught by many experienced teachers. Maybe, some youths from urban-background have no camping experience. They,maybe do not know how to set up fire or cooking food. So, national service provides them with those, for them-unusual activities and experiences. They can learn new things that they do not know. Other youths can also teach them. This experiences can easily gain by them as most of activities held provide them from within and outside knowledge. I believe that participating in national…...

National Credit

...NATIONAL CREDIT ACT- 2005 Money lenders breaking credit act exposed Cape Town - In a bid to stem the abuse of consumers by lenders and ensure compliance with the National Credit Act (NCA), the National Credit Regulator (NCR) and the South African Police Service (Saps) conducted joint onsite investigations in an operation in Mpumalanga. The NCR partnered with the Saps in Middleburg, Barberton, Nelspruit and Witbank this week, investigating 37 lenders. This led to the arrest of ten individuals who contravened the NCA. "The focus of this kind of operation is primarily on credit providers, who are engaging in reckless lending, unlawfully garnishing, retaining pension cards, bank cards, identity documents and personal identity numbers (PINs) of their clients as surety," said Nomsa Motshegare, CEO of the NCR. "This is a contravention of the National Credit Act and it is a criminal offence", she added. Motshegare stated that this is part of the NCR's ongoing strategy to ensure that all credit providers, no matter where they conduct business, comply with the provisions of the National Credit Act. "The exploitation of vulnerable and unsuspecting consumers by credit providers will not be tolerated," she added. During the operation, ten people were arrested and as a result, nine criminal cases were opened. In addition, the suspects were found to be in possession of 851 ID books and 921 bankcards, six passports, two drivers licenses and 44 cellphones. Motshegare complimented......

The National Health Service

...The NHS: One American’s Perspective Lynn Whitt MHA 776 Dr. Leist December 18, 2013 The National Health Service (NHS) of Great Britain was established in 1948 to create a national health system that would serve all citizens regardless of ability to pay. There were three main objectives established that were critical to the success of the program: (1) equal access to care, (2) provision of preventative and curative care, and (3) services provided at no cost to the patients (Perlman & Fried, 2012). Today, the NHS is still alive and well and is meeting the expectations of the original objectives set forth at its inception. Currently, the NHS is credited as being the single largest publically funded health care system in the world. In 2010, the Commonwealth Fund declared that “in comparison with the healthcare systems of six other countries (Australia, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand and USA) the NHS was the second most impressive overall. The NHS was rated as the best system in terms of efficiency, effective care and cost-related problems. It was also ranked second for patient equality and safety” (Perlman & Fried, 2012). This paper will address the author’s impression of the NHS based on research and information collected and reviewed as well as discusses the perceived strengths and weaknesses of the program. As stated previously, the NHS is the world’s largest publically funded health care system. It employs approximately 1.7 million......

The National Bank

...Case study 2: Second National Bank 1. What do you think of the idea of having an annual off-site retreat for top management to develop the strategic plan for the organization? In my opinion, it is not a good idea because in many situations, top managers are not someone who involved directly to the strategic plan. Their main responsibility is to manage is focused on macro management process; as a result, many of them do not remember primary categories of the strategic plan; for example, in this case study, they did not even bring any copy of the plan to their meetings. Meanwhile, middle level and low level managers tend to deal with different kind of projects which are based on the strategic plan in more details. Consequently, they could figure out if the strategic plan is good enough and how it could be improved. Besides that, one of the most important factors which help recognize if it is the effective strategic plan is the strategy reviews from middle level and low level managers. However, via this case study, we can realize that no one in top management brings any review to the meetings. I think it is a really bad situation, since how the top management could adapt the plan based on the outcomes of those reviews. 2. Critique the planning process for the Second National Bank Firstly, the strategic planning of the Second National Bank should comply with organization’s mission and vision Mission: Provide excellent bank services Vision: “Exxor County’s Friendliest......

National Initiatives

...Assess the influence of a recent national policy initiative promoting anti discriminatory practice Every Child Matters (2003) The national policy initiative that I’m going to assess is Every Child Matters (2003). The important point of this national initiative is extending in services to improve children’s life and help them with life problems. This policy focuses the needs for services, including schools and social workers and health professionals to work more closely to protect and support the need and rights of all children. Eight years old Victoria Climbie died from Hypothermia after months of abuse at the hands of her foster- carer and great aunt and her partner Carl John Manning. Victoria visited health and social care settings many times during her being abused and she was complete discharged whit no members of staff questioning her marks on her arms and legs and how she broke her leg. Also due to her race she had dark skin colour and therefor bruising was not as apparent. The poor 8 year old went through complete torture and abuse for many years of her life and the health and social care services failed her so many times. Following Victoria’s death, the Home Office and the Department of Health invited Lord Laming who is very well known to work with social services and child protection came to a deduction that there had been to many deaths of young children who have suffered abuse and been neglected by the health and social care services. The Act Every......

Godfrey Date: 6/1/2015 Re: Surveillance by national security agencies Wiki leak is an organization that deals with journalistic activities involving the publishing of information considered secret with unknown sources. Recently documents came up known as the Snowden documents showing how staff working for wiki leaks have been victims of surveillance by both the United states as well as British national security agencies. This was a very serious document that show how agencies of the government go to the extents of tapping communication channels for those working at wiki leaks together with those who support it. It has been a very crucial aspect that puts into spotlight the ethics surrounding the whole situation. This surveillance is not backed by warrants and this makes it illegal for the agencies to perform such activities. It is a form of violation of privacy and it also violates people’s right to express themselves as well as do their activities at their own privacy. It creates a sense of being watched. Just think when you are under surveillance you are being watched, making it possible for people to get the following information: 1. Name 2. Birthdate 3. Social Security Number 4. Address 5. Personal Information 6. Banking Information Scary is it? The next time you are......

Reform and Demand Response in the British National Health Service

...1 Introduction Governments facing scal pressure have increasingly turned to proposals to create or enhance consumer choice for public services (see, e.g., Besley and Ghatak 2003, Blochliger 2008, Hoxby 2003, Le Grand 2003). In health care, choice is a popular reform model adopted by administrations of di erent political orientations in many countries, including the US, the UK, Denmark, Italy (Lombardy), the Netherlands, Germany and Sweden. The belief is that by increasing choice for patients, providers of care or insurers will become more responsive to patient demand, which in turn will drive greater eciency in the delivery and funding of health care. However, whether enhanced patient choice will make hospital choice more responsive to quality is not well established, although the consequences of poor quality in health care can be dire. Patients' health can be severely compromised by poor quality care, including, as we show below, an increased risk of death. Thus there is a need to understand the responses of health care consumers when they are o ered more choice. This is exactly the issue we address here. To do this we exploit a reform which introduced patient choice and tie this to the estimation of a structural demand model that explicitly incorporates the institutional features of the reform. This enables us to identify the e ect of increasing choice on patient behavior. We use the model to quantify the gains from the reform in terms of patient welfare......

...CASE OF NATIONAL FABRICATORS I. Introduction/background a. What is the case about? b. What are the issues to be analysed? - What are the options? - What are the decisions to be made? II. Analysis of the issues III. Recommendations with reasons IV. Executive Summary INTRODUCTION/ BACKGROUND What is the case about? In July 1994, the president of National Fabricators Inc Mr. Tom Kruger called his bank manager of the confederation Bank of Canada, Mr.Jim Kashmar to ask that the bank continue to extend a temporary line of credit of $ 1,000,000 for a period of sixty days. They needed this extension because there had been some delays in the collection of the company’s holdbacks for that period. After the sixty days they hoped to have collected their holdbacks and other receivables so they would return to their normal line of credit which was $800,00. In the month before however, national fabricators had asked for the same extension in credit as a result of delays in the collection of some payments for locker room installations done. The bank had reluctantly extended the credit on the basis of the confidence in the new president of the company, relations with client and the company’s impact on community. They however stated that, nothing in the application warranted the extension of further credit. As such this new appeal for an extension had to be very compelling. Background National......
