i think the government is playing its role in ensuring that the food supplied by the business is safe and invidual rights are protected as it is required by law to include the ingrdiants on the package to aware the consumer for any harmfull effects that might happen by the consumption of the particular food , however there is still a lot of room left where government can play its part. i am a manager at walmart and from my personal experience there are lot of rules and regualulations are implied by the government when i was hired as a manager i have to pass the federal test for food safety. in order to pass the test i had to learn the temeperatures at which a particular food should be cooked and held besides that in walmart stores all the product in fresh produce area are labeled with either its organic , non-organic along with the country of orgin. the descriptive tags are attached with the shelf to privide information and ingridants that is readily available for the consumer.there are visits in the store by food inspector once a week to make sure the cleanliness and the things are there where they are supposed to be. i think the key to it is how the business implement on the rules and guidlines given by the government when it comes to food areas.the government can make it better by doing more frequent surprise visits and also check the point of origin where the food is coming from.

Conditions of Probation

...Conditions of Probation The terms and conditions of a persons probation are clear, cut, and dry. Probation is a prison sentence that has been suspended on the condition that the offender follows certain prescribed rules and commits no further offenses (Sieter, 2011). A probation officer evaluates offender progress and recommends intensity of supervision based on observations from time of conviction through the period of adjustment after release from an institution (FL DOC, 2012). The whole program is pretty much laid out for you, all you have to do is follow it. Case #1 is Stanley Gravas a 41 year old male, apprehended for DWI (drinking while intoxicated). This is Mr Gravas’ second DWI offense. He states that the reason for the offense is due to the loss of his third child (son) in an apparent boating accident. I do hold some sympathy for Mr Gravas, but we have to admit we are a little shocked with him working for an insurance company for 18 years they had not noticed problems and provided assistance. He is well educated and seems to have a good head on his shoulders and does not present any need for stricter supervision, as long as we can get him back on the right track. It seems as if life was great (job, home) for the Gravas’ family prior to the death of the child. We strongly suggest and recommend that he definitely seek professional help, attend drug/alcohol treatment, and some sort of family counseling. Stanley Graves has made tremendous improvements after......

Classical Conditions

...Classical conditions The classical conditioning experiment conducted by Pavlov goes as follows: A dog is hooked to a mechanism that measures the amount that the dog salivates. A tone is sounded just before a dog is given meat powder. This occurs several times. Eventually, conditioning occurs in that the dog salivates just to the bell alone. Of course, the dog salivates instinctively in response to the food, but "learns" to salivate to the sound of the bell, much as you might find your mouth watering at the site, smell, or even memory of your favorite food. Pavlov used this relatively simple experiment as a model for describing much of the automatic/nonconscious learning that occurs in everyday life. In any case where you have “learned” to respond automatically to some sort of stimulus with fear, joy, excitement, or anticipation you have become classically conditioned. Cited: Ivan Petrovich Pavlov This is a file from the Wikimedia Commons. My classical condition started when I took my family to ride the incredible hulk roller coaster in universal studios, Orlando Florida amusement park. I had always wondered what it would be like to ride that roller coaster. You haven't truly lived until you've experienced The Incredible Hulk's wild and unique uphill launch. The effect is like being trapped inside an airplane that’s flying out of control. Quickly accelerating uphill defies logic, and feels both exhilarating and terrifying. It is not for the faint of heart,......

Nervous Condition

...Men In Nervous Conditions: An Ignored Matter The men of Zimbabwe struggled to assert the independence of their people against political, cultural and religious colonial pressure (Vembe), but reduced women to silent supporters (Stone 113). This dynamic still holds true on the literary front, where male writers of Zimbabwe, and Africa in general, present to the west male-centered, idealized pictures of traditional women and culture. Women, however, uncertain that men will revalue them, concern themselves with the pressures within the culture (McLeod). For this reason, the men of Africa generally discourage female authors from revealing their gritty perspectives. Further, E. Kim Stone writes, “Under colonialism, female storytellers were excluded from the few powerful positions the British system of colonization allowed in Rhodesia,” suggesting the traditional place of women as storytellers, somewhat ironically, was also suppressed by the colonizers. Only women are interested in revealing the internal pressures of postcolonial Zimbabwe. But these hidden pressures are just the ones that cause the “nervous conditions” in the book titled as such. A female character narrates this text about women, bearing to light women's struggles to be themselves within a constraining environment. But even as critics revel in this rare, realistic portrayal of Zimbabwean women, they seldom explore the significance of Tsitsi Dangarembga's representation of men, too often passing them off as flat......

Workers Rights and Working Conditions

...don’t think that drug testing is an invasion of the employee’s privacy. The Employer informs the potential employees if a drug test is required before hiring them, and also if they can do it at any time during their employment period. The applicant has the option not to take the job if they feel their privacy is being invaded. An employer needs to know that they have responsible employees working for them since they are the ones doing the job. When someone is on drugs even if it’s not during work hours it can affect their production, or them being on time and many other reasons. The employee is trying to protect themselves, and if it’s illegal they shouldn’t be doing it anyways. I think that getting the drugs out of the workplace is more important than protecting the privacy of the employee from drug testing. The employee is informed about the drug tests and they have the option to deny it as well. It is more important to have a safe working environment with responsible people who will perform their jobs on a daily basis. What about other health-threatening activities, i.e. smoking outside of working hours, unprotected sex, etc. Should employers be able to question or test employees or potential employees about these activities? I don’t think that if the employee smokes or has unprotected sex that it is any of the employers business. The employee isn’t doing anything illegal. Smoking may cause the employee to have some serious issues at some point, and although it may......

Working

...is not exceptional for people with an international career. People who work in the IT sector have to travel a lot as well. Even scientists have several conferences in different countries. All in all, it is clear that an international career comes with both advantages and disadvantages. It allows people to discover new places and thereby get new experiences. Yet, it also demands from the employees to stay away from home and have a certain language capability as well as several other qualities. I personally would reject an international career because I believe that it requires too much of oneself. The major disadvantage, in my opinion, is that you are not able to live at home. However, for people with the ambition of travelling while working at the same time, an international career might be something worth pursuing....

The Social Determinants of Health: Working Conditions as a Determinant of Health

...Working Conditions as a Determinant of Health This summary is primarily based on papers and presentations by Andrew Jackson, Senior Economist, Canadian Labour Congress, and Michael Polanyi Assistant Professor, Saskatchewan Population Health Research and Evaluation Unit, and Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies, University of Regina. The presentations were prepared for The Social Determinants of Health Across the Life-Span Conference, held in Toronto in November 2002. The opinions expressed in this publication are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Health Canada. Current Situation Over the 1980s and 1990s, there has been an ongoing restructuring of the labour market and of employment relationships. The intent of these changes has been to promote productivity and competitiveness, as opposed to promoting a worker-centred agenda of “good jobs” (Lowe, 2000). In Canada, only two-thirds of the employed workforce are in “standard” salaried jobs with no defined end date (mostly provided by large firms and the public sector). In this shrinking core job market, workers who have survived layoffs, privatization and contracting-out are generally working longer and harder. Employers have tried to increase profitability and competitiveness and to contain budgets by boosting productivity. This has been accomplished largely by increasing workloads. For example, in the health sector, fewer nurses, social workers and other health professionals must now......

Business Conditions

...control on business of companies promoted by them. Major management posts in these business houses are always held by responsible family members. Though joint family system is slowly disappearing, but still there is a common tendency in Indian families to own a business. Another prominent feature of the Indian economy is that non- corporate sector has the largest share of the total business of the country. They are the largest employment providers. Growth in non- corporate sector is much faster than even in the corporate sector. Non- corporate sector is engaged in wide spread manufacturing and service industries, and these are again mostly family business. Non corporate sector work according to available conditions and develop their business models suiting prevalent conditions and systems. This way India is a high powered distant society. Western businesses will have to accept family authority while negotiating business deals with non- corporate as well as family controlled corporate sector. Multi Linguistic and cultural market with political challenges The business language in urban India is local language mixed with English. It is also mixed with Hindi and state dialects making it difficult for a casual business operator to negotiate. There are wide ranges of languages spoken in diverse India. Accordingly, perfection in one language by a Western business negotiator does not mean that he or she can represent his/ her business deals effectively in all parts of......

Slavery Conditions

...how accurate is it to describe slave conditions as poor and depressing? For slave conditions to be described as poor and depressing is completely accurate. There are aspects which could make the conditions appear to be more bearable but in no way did it make the conditions anything but poor and depressing. Aspects such as free time and family are elements which slaves may have looked forward to but this was all still under restriction. Conditions slaves were kept in were extremely severe. After slaves were sold they would be transported across the atlantic as if they were goods. It is described as the lowest point for a slave as it is the most horrifying experience. The crew men would happily exploit the women. This in itself is an extremely traumatic experience, but the slaves went through many other things in addition to this. The slaves were kept in the smallest places possible, they were treated more like animals as appose to humans. 500 to 600 slaves would be tightly shackled into holds. The conditions were so severe that the government had to legislate but this make very little change. Ottobah Cugobnna a slave, said that ‘death was more preferable than life’, this alone highlights how extreme the transportation conditions were. After the transportation period the slaves then arrived on their plantations. The conditions they were kept in there were extremely severe too. Different plantations had different conditions of work, some can be said to be less extreme......

Working Conditions and Employee Performance in the Public Sector in Ghana (a Case Study of Madina Polyclinic)

...Working Conditions and Employee Performance in the Public Sector (A Case Study of Madina Polyclinic) By Mr. Kley Elikem Pius pius3000@yahoo.com Abstract Management’s new challenge is to create an environment that attracts, retain and motivates its workforce. This study seeks to examine the working conditions on the performance of employees. It is also aimed at identifying the perception of employees about their working conditions. The study employs descriptive and sample survey techniques. A sample of 50 employees was selected from the Madina Polyclinic in Ghana where the study is focused by the application of stratified and sample random sampling methods. Data was collected by the use of a well-designed questionnaire. It was found that casual workers were not satisfied with their working conditions while aside them other employees were somehow/ averagely satisfied with their working conditions. Working conditions such as quietness of workplace, office arrangement, availability of working materials, salaries, bonuses and allowances and job security have an influence on the performance of employees. It was thus recommended that to ensure improvement in employee performance and productivity, measures should be put in place to establish a conducive working condition for employees. 1.1 INTRODUCTION Management’s new challenge is to form an environment that attracts, retain and motivate its workforce. The responsibility lies with managers and supervisors at......

Evaluating Safe Working Conditions

...Axia College Material Appendix E Evaluating Safe Working Conditions Directions: Read each scenario and answer the following questions. 1. Workplace Violence Sam is a security officer for ABC Corporation in the Phoenix area. He is always stationed at the security desk in the main lobby to greet employees and visitors. One day he observed an employee from the finance department muttering something under his breath and acting strangely as he walked by the security desk. He noticed this same behavior the following day. On the third day, there was a shooting in the finance department. The director of finance and her administrative assistant were shot and killed by the employee exhibiting strange behavior; the employee committed suicide prior to the arrival of the police. What should Sam have done prior to the incident? Should the security officer have notified anyone about the employee’s strange behavior? What company policies do you think should be in place regarding situations similar to this? Explain your answer. I believe that Sam should have handled this situation very differently. Prior to this incident occurring I feel that if Sam had been doing his job correctly he would of reported the strange behavior of the employee, Being that Sam always worked that particular post, his observation would have been taken seriously and then an individual from the company could have pulled the employee aside and helped them with their situation.......

...In the second half of the 19th century, the industrial revolution in America had a huge transformation about politics, society, science, especially technology and economy and achieved a big jump in development of nation. However, it was also a darkness and hardest working condition for workers in factories. Unfair, unhealthy working conditions, child and women labor were main and rifle problems that workers and government try to take many actions to correct. The first is the general situation of Industrial Revolution in America, the beginning of factory system, where workers and machinery together in one place to produce goods. Industrial revolution reached America by 1800s and boomed after the civil war (1861-1865).

Economic Conditions

...Economic Conditions- In the early 90’s Russia’s economy underwent a ride through unfamiliar waters. At first it was the collapse of the centrally planned economy that was a stamp of the state-controlled economy and then it was the stand-in by an economy working on the basis of market forces. It was difficult to implement financial reform to raise government revenue and there was a further crisis from dependency on short-term borrowing to help finance budget deficits in 1998. However, the Russians were able to overcome the financial crisis in 1998 and achieve 9 years of growth while implementing economic reform. From 2001-2008, Russia had a budget surplus which stemmed from the stabilization of inflation and exchange rates due to well executed fiscal policy. In 2008 Russia was hit with another economic crisis. This time they were much better prepared. Farms were able to adjust quickly to the new economic conditions, acknowledged the profitable channels to sell their products, restructured the production according to the requirements of the market, and effectively created the processing of agricultural product, selling them through a network of stores in Russia, and trusted wholesale agents at better prices Political- In Russia the powers between the central, regional, and local authorities are still growing.  Its federation is made up of 83 administrative units, in addition to Moscow and St Petersburg.  In 2000 the president at the time Mr. Putin combined the regions......

Probation Conditions

...Determining Conditions of Probation CJA/234 June 18, 2009 ABSTRACT Conditions of parole and probation have contributing factors that affect an offender’s post-prison life. The background of the offender is very important when determining conditions of probation and parole. The history of offenses committed by the offender is extremely important. Conditions of parole and probation consist of drug/alcohol treatment, psychiatric evaluation/treatment, anger management treatment, family counseling, job training, housing assistance, and intensive supervision. The conditions recommended help the offender turn his or her life around permanently. In some cases that does not happen when the desire of the offender does not exist. Determining Conditions of Probation Stanley Gravas is married with two children. He recently lost his third child in an accident. The loss of his child sent his family in chaos. Stanley admitted he was a social drinker but when his child died, he started drinking more. Neither he nor his family has dealt with their grief. This is the second DWI. Looking at his case I decided to give Stanley a few conditions in his probation that will not only help him but his family as well. Stanley must attend drug and alcohol treatment which includes attending meetings regularly. He and his family will also attend family counseling to help them with the grief and the damage that Stanley’s drinking has done to all of them. After 90 days he has......

Working Conditions

...Working conditions Working conditions refers to the working environment and aspects of an employee’s terms and conditions of employment. This covers such matters as: the organisation of work and work activities; training, skills and employability; health, safety and well-being; and working time and work-life balance. Pay is also an important aspect of working conditions, although Article 153 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) excludes pay from the scope of its actions in the area of working conditions. Improving working conditions is one of the goals of the EU. Article 151 TFEU states that: ‘The Union and the Member States… shall have as their objectives the promotion of employment, improved living and working conditions, so as to make possible their harmonisation while the improvement is being maintained’. Further, Article 153 TFEU states that ‘the Union shall support and complement the activities of the Member States’ in a range of social policy fields, including working conditions (Article 153 1(b)). The thinking of the EU on its competences in the area of working conditions has developed considerably over the past half century. The original EEC Treaty of 1957 took the view that the objectives of improved living and working conditions were to be achieved primarily through the mechanisms of the common market. Intervention was only to secure what was consistent with the common market: the free movement of labour. This policy was revised......
