One thing that this article lacks is more resources. It doesn’t do a good job of explaining further on how schools are lacking resources for the diverse needs of students beyond surveys. It should give more information and more detail on how more resources would be better for the diverse students in the classroom ad how…...

...The article under the headline ”Vote or they will vin” is taken from the “Rossiskaya Gazeta” and it is written by Alexandr Gasuk. The primary task of published article is to show the process of elections In the USA and the value of people’s opinion in it. The elections of president are very important not only for the USA but also for every country in the world. The government should be a heart of stone for its country and is needs with a good leader for successful ruling. The president is chosen by people but what the value has emigrants or other ethnic groups in the elections? Alexandr Gasuk Focuses his attention on this aspects. The article begins with the author’s description of the U.S. presidential election and the influence of Russian citizens on the outcome of the election commission. Author asks the question himself who will vote the Russian-speaking diaspora. He gives the statistics that the Russian language is 10th most common, and the Russian is 1 percent of population. It seems strange, but the large number of Russians do not affect in their political life. They also do not take part in any political activity, unlike other small nations. The cause of this phenomenon tried to find the author. As the experts say the reason for this passivity is disunity, lack of unity and of the organizational structure of the community. The president of American University in Moscow Edward Lozansky proves it and he also said that only Russian Jewish community can offer a...

... members and physicians maintain realistic expectations for drug therapy and remember that, as with all current Alzheimer's drugs, responses are generally only modest at best (Samuel E. Gandy, 1996 ). The others example of Cholinesterase Inhibitors is Exelon (rivastigmine tartrate), which also effective for treatment of mild to moderate. Exelon has also been approved to improve the patient's performance in three main domains of functional assessment of Alzheimer's are global (such as activities of daily living), behavior and cognition. In the other hand, Memantine is the second type of drug-based treatment also one effective treatment for the Alzhermeir’s disease. Memantine can also be used to protect brain cells from damage caused by glutamate, a chemical messenger. Namenda is an example of a Memantine drug treatment was the first drug approved by FDA to treat the symptoms of moderate to severe Alzhermeir’s disease. For many years, some European countries use this drug in treating moderate to severe Alzheimer's disease ( Farlow MR, et al. 2003 ). It was functioning as a barrier to protect the brain's nerve cells against excess amounts of glutamate, a messenger chemical released in large amounts by the cells that had been damaged by Alzheimer's. American Health Assistance Foundation, in an article published in 2011 states that "When the glutamate attached to the cell surface "docking sites" called N-methyl-D aspartate (NMDA) receptor, calcium can flow freely into cells...

...In regards to the article above in which I have read and researched, it states that intellectual property is defined as “creations of the human mind.” Intellectual property rights are important to individuals, businesses, inventors, etc. The article discussed how intellectual property rights are legal rights which govern innovations. There are eight different types of intellectual properties which are all standardized by an agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS). The author examined each of the eight intellectual property rights. To sum it up, intellectual property rights are used to protect the distinctive creations of businesses and individuals. The legal business issue that is represented in this article is an agreement of the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property. Intellectual property can be sold, purchased, hired or licensed. In each of these aspects, the properties need to be protected so others do not steal or misuse the creations of businesses or individuals. Businesses and the like have rights to protect their most vital assets and prosper from their creations and business developments. The best way to do so is by obtaining a patent. This article discusses the options TRIPS can provide protection of intellectual rights. A patent gives the legal rights to products. Trademarks are used to protect symbols or labels which could be the life line of a business. Undisclosed information is used for protecting the...

...Kyiv National Economic University named after Vadym Hetman The analysis of the article: «5 Lessons From the Rise of the BRICs» Veronika Kozachok 4th Group Kyiv – 2014 5 Lessons From the Rise of the BRICs DEREK THOMPSON AND MAX FISHER Learning from the successes and stumbles of the world's great rising economies In 2001, Jim O'Neill, the chairman of Goldman Sachs asset management, famously predicted the four fastest-growing emerging markets for the decade. We know that foursome by the acronym BRIC: Brazil, Russia, India, and China. That the economic world remembers his prediction owes as much to the handiness of the acronym as it does to the accuracy of his forecast. China, India, and Brazil are among the most dynamic and exciting emerging powers in the world. Indeed, to call them "emerging" feels like a slight. India is the world's largest county, China the world's largest manufacturer, and Brazil the Western Hemisphere's most vibrant expanding consumer economy. (Russia, the runt of the group, is beset by awful demographics and a weak private sector outside of its natural resources). As investors and economic analysts cast about for the next batch of high-growth markets, let's pause to recall the lessons from the BRICs: (1) Work on the middle-income transition plan; (2) Trade, trade, trade; (3) state capitalism can work; (4) corruption kills; (5) strong civil society matters. (1) THE RISE OF THE MIDDLE CLASS Perhaps the broadest lesson from...

...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...

... attitudes, behavior and outcomes that may serve as good indexes for such investigation. As Dulewicz and Higgs (2000, p. 341 and p. 351) indicate “little research has been conducted in an organizational context” and “there is a need for rigorous research to underpin the assertion in an organizational setting”. This study attempts to narrow this gap by empirically testing the degree to which emotionally intelligent senior managers, employed in public sector organizations, develop high job satisfaction, career commitment, job involvement and effective commitment, diminish continuance commitment and work-family conflict, display altruistic behavior, withdrawal intentions and better job performance. In addition, this study examines the moderating role of emotional intelligence for the relationship between work-family conflict and job satisfaction and career commitment. This article is organized as follows: the next section presents the importance of managerial skills and stresses the concept of emotional intelligence and its key components followed by the development of the research hypotheses. The research method is presented in the following section and the results of this study follow. Finally, the study’s results and limitations are summarized. Theory and hypotheses Emotional intelligence Scholars tend to view emotional intelligence as a factor which has a potential to contribute to more positive attitudes, behaviors and outcomes. At the same time, as Schutte et al. (2002) note...

...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...

...Article Rebuttal Kenneth Sawyer BCOM/275 February 14, 2012 Heidi Roberts Article Rebuttal The laws on abortion when dealing with women where pregnancy is a result of rape or incest can be detrimental to these victims overall well being. They should be allowed to make the appropriate choice according to their circumstances. There are different factors that may contribute to the final decision of an abortion. New abortion laws have caused many concerns especially toward victims of rape and incest. It is stated that eighteen states require that doctors make sonograms available to pregnant women; and in nine other states it is required to have some form of verbal counseling or written materials. In addition, Texas laws require that a sonogram be conducted within two hours of the planned abortion, that the fetus heart beat be made audible if possible, doctors must provide a state dictated list of other options, and patient must wait twenty four hours after her first visit to obtain an abortion. (Editorial: Abortion bill is unwarranted state Intrusion on Women’s Right to Choose) (Texas Can Enforce New Abortion Law USA Today.com) In my opinion, each of these required steps can have positive outcomes on numerous abortions that take place throughout states saving many lives and preventing negative outcomes that women face after making such a decision. It is stated that the laws being passed...

... qualified candidates possess the ability to be a effective leader. And on some occasions it's not until after they are in position that the organization realizes the mistake. Role Modeling A role model is a person whose behavior in a particular role is imitated by others. (2015. Merrian-Webster). And the leaders and top management teams are looked upon as role models in the organization. The way they carry themselves at the workplace as well as outside the organization, how the my deal with important situations, or the effectiveness of their influence will set a standard for the rest of the company.  Leaders today have shaped the culture of our society. As a African American male in a urban society three leaders have influenced, motivated, and have helped will many to success. Basketball legend Micheal Jordan, rap icon Shawn Carter (Jay-Z) and movie director and actor  Tyler Perry. In this article I will compare their leadership styles, introduce the concept of influence, summarize their influence process and analyze their influence process.  Micheal Jordan is the epitome of a leader, he led his NBA team the Chicago Bulls to six world championships and now is the owner of the Charlotte Hornets.

...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 follow...

...In this article, it goes into detail about what executive search consultants do and how they should act. Executive search is basically moving a person from one firm to another. This process is not as easy as it is said. “The profession is not regulated,” meaning there are gray areas as to the standards and what is off limits. Presidents and CEOs of executive search consultants firms in the article talk about maintaining a professional stand and remaining loyal to the clients, not the candidates. Executive search consultants are meant to help find candidates for clients and not take away people from the company they are helping. Also they should not practice “parallel processing,” which is basically having a candidate for two different clients. Executive search consultants also have to “take care not to misrepresent themselves, their clients or the candidates during the search process” Each candidate has to be treated fairly to avoid a candidate not being chosen due to discrimination. Nowhere is perfect, there will be some search consultants who have favorites and try to get them selected instead, but all firms should be striving to avoid that practice. Evaluation This article had some deal to do with business conduct. When reading this article, the ethical dilemma in Chapter three comes to mind. Lavonda had been recruited to another pharmaceutical firm. But how it she was recruited was not, by any means, appropriate. The case itself said that Lavonda was “lured away from...

...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...
