SUN TZU ON THE ART OF WAR

The Art of War, by Sun Tzu THE OLDEST MILITARY TREATISE IN THE WORLD Translated from the Chinese with Introduction and Critical Notes BY LIONEL GILES, M.A. Assistant in the Department of Oriental Printed Books and MSS. in the British Museum First Published in 1910 To my brother Captain Valentine Giles, R.G. in the hope that a work 2400 years old may yet contain lessons worth consideration by the soldier of today this translation is affectionately dedicated. Preface to the Project Gutenburg Etext When Lionel Giles began his translation of Sun Tzu's ART OF WAR, the work was virtually unknown in Europe. Its introduction to Europe began in 1782 when a French Jesuit Father living in China, Joseph Amiot, acquired a copy of it, and translated it into French. It was not a good translation because, according to Dr. Giles, "[I]t contains a great deal that Sun Tzu did not write, and very little indeed of what he did."


The first translation into English was published in 1905 in Tokyo by Capt. E. F. Calthrop, R.F.A. However, this translation is, in the words of Dr. Giles,…...

...Twitter! EXERCISE 11 USING STATISTICS A STUDY SAMPLE TO DESCRIBE STATISTICAL TECHNIQUE IN REVIEW Most studies describe the subjects that comprise the study sample. This description of the sample is called the sample characteristics which may be presented in a table or the narrative of the article. The sample characteristics are often presented for each of the groups in a study (i.e. experimental and control groups). Descriptive statistics are used to generate sample characteristics, and the type of statistic used depends on the level of measurement of the demographic variables included in a study (Burns & Grove, 2007). For example, measuring gender produces nominal level data that can be described using frequencies, percentages, and mode. Measuring educational level usually produces ordinal data that can be described using frequencies, percentages, mode, median, and range. Obtaining each subject’s specific age is an example of ratio data that can be described using mean, range, and standard deviation. Interval and ratio data are analyzed with the same type of statistics and are usually referred to as interval/ratio level data in this text. RESEARCH ARTICLE Source: Troy, N. W., & Dalgas-Pelish, P.

...James Bach on Risk-Based Testing by James Bach This is risk-based testing: 1. Make a prioritized list of risks. 2. Perform testing that explores each risk. 3. As risks evaporate and new ones emerge, adjust your test effort to stay focused on the current crop. Any questions? Well, now that you know what risk-based testing is, I can devote the rest of the article to explaining why you might want to do it, and how to do it well. Why Do Risk-Based Testing? As a tester, there are certain things you must do. Those things vary depending on the kind of project you’re on, your industry niche, and so on. But no matter what else you do, your job includes finding important problems in the product. Risk is a problem that might happen. The magnitude of a risk is a joint function of the likelihood and impact of the problem—the more likely the problem is to happen, and the more impact it will have if it happens, the higher the risk associated with that problem. Thus, testing is motivated by risk. If you accept this premise, you might well wonder how the term "risk-based testing" is not merely redundant. Isn’t all testing risk-based? To answer that, look at food. We all have to eat to live. But it would seem odd to say that we do "food-based living." Under normal circumstances, we don’t think of ourselves as living from meal to meal. Many of us don’t keep records of the food we eat, or carefully associate our food with our daily activities. However, when we......

...Nike LeBron Case Describe how the article explains Nike's alignment with the general environment effects: Demographic, Sociocultural, Technological, Economic, and Global. Demographic Nike’s products are widely distributed demographically. Their footwear is sold to a wide range of men and women as well as children. An article mentions a 30 year old Donell Brown, it also mentions Lucy Rangel, 37 years old, who was shopping for sneakers with her two teenage daughters. Products’ prices are also very different to accommodate people who seek for cheaper products or very exclusive products. Sociocultural Since people are getting health conscious, this means more demand of the Nike products like shoes, etc. Nike has always been the first choice of people when it comes to buy something sport/fitness related. Nike has many loyal customers whose first choice is their product. Technological Shoppers are willing to spend more on products with newer technology and fresher styles Nike is "not arbitrarily taking up prices," said spokeswoman Mary Remuzzi. "We are constantly looking at ways to enhance the product line with new innovation and product attributes." Product innovation is an ongoing process and is vital to stay ahead of competition. Nike, as well as its competitor Adidas, in “some instances look to increase price, usually in areas where we launch new, innovative products." Economic As the economy slows, consumer purchases are down. The biggest threat for Nike is...

... and the United States is in trouble. A US Department of Education report1 from March concludes that “without substantial and sustained changes to the educational system, the United States will relinquish its leadership in the twentyfirst century”. The panic plays out in countless newspaper articles and policy reports, recently leading to legislative responses such as the America COMPETES Act, which contains a list of measures to boost average mathematics and science test scores. A country’s place in the new global economy is, according to these reports, determined by its rank in the maths- and science-score hierarchy. Following this reasoning, one would conclude that the US economy is threatened not only by Japan and South Korea, but also by Finland, Singapore, New Zealand and the Czech Republic. The rankings that engender these fears are primarily based on two tests administered to middle- and high-school students since 1995: the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). Improving education should be a priority for the nation, but erroneous interpretations of international test scores may drive economic and competitiveness policy in the wrong direction. When we consider that education testing shows formidable US strength as the largest producer of top-scoring students alongside a significant problem at the bottom, the threat to future competitiveness seems to......

... 890,000 infants are born each year. Since the 1960s, each individual born in a hospital is screened soon after birth for medical conditions such as phenylketonuria and sickle cell anemia via obtaining a few drops of blood from the baby’s heel as part of standard hospital procedure, irrespective of parental consent. These tests commonly analyze hormone and protein content from the samples. Each state oversees their own screening program and currently there is little uniformity among the conditions studied. The costs of these tests vary from $15 to $60 and are often covered through state fees and by health insurance plans. The addition of mandatory postnatal genome sequencing would add a tremendous burden to the healthcare system. Whole genome sequencing tests can currently cost around $1000, creating a deficit of around 4 billion dollars a year. Parents would be required to meet with a genetic counselor to interpret the data and the functionality of many genes has yet to be discovered. There is room for tremendous ambiguity without prior research and a shortage of qualified individuals to interpret all the data. False positive test results for genetic tests occur, on average, more than 50 times per every true positive finding according to a study conducted by Kwon et al from JAMA Pediatrics. This could potentially lead to an increase of vulnerable child syndrome, a condition that affects the family of an infant or child who has suffered what the parents believe is a “close......

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......

Discovery in Labor Arbitration Laura J.Cooper* The mere statement of the topic, discovery in labor arbitration, suggests a paradox. Is not the essence of the arbitration process an effort to avoid the procedural complexities that make litigation comparatively slow and costly? More than forty years ago, Learned Hand admonished a litigant distressed with the procedural failings of an arbitration proceeding: Arbitration may or may not be a desirable substitute for trials in courts; as to that the parties must decide in each instance. But when they have adopted it, they must be content with its informalities; they may not hedge it about with those procedural limitations which it is precisely its......
