The role of leaders in the development of human society was traditionally extremely important. It is an undeniable fact that successful leaders contributed to the general progress of society even though not all of their actions were good. Nevertheless, regardless the actions of a leader, he/she stimulates his surrounding to certain actions or even counter-actions which inevitably lead the group or the entire society to progress. At the same time, it is necessary to underline that the notion of leadership is quite large and may be applied to different spheres though, in principle, the concept of leadership remains unchanged and does not really depends on the field where it is applied.

In other words, leaders are present in all fields, including not only politics, but also economy, science, technologies, culture, etc. Obviously, leadership is equally important to all spheres. This is why it is possible to speak about the significance and the role of a personality of leaders in history. Basically, this does not necessarily mean the interpretation of the role of a leader in terms of the world history, but it rather implies his/her significant to the epoch and his/her influence on the surrounding people. What is more important is the fact that leaders possess a great power to influence people, fully reveal their potential and realize their greatest dreams. This means that leaders can realize themselves but they can also stimulate other people to fully reveal their talents and realize their potential.

Obviously, nowadays, leadership is widely applied to the sphere of business and technologies. In fact, the role of business leaders as well as leaders in the domain of technologies, is of a paramount importance in the modern world because nowadays, the role of politics, for instance, seems to be not so important as it used to be in the past, while the…...

...ECPSC- 2013 CURRENT AFFAIRS HANDOUT NO 13 LOKPAL BILL 1. Background. (a) The Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) while recommending the constitution of Lokpal was convinced that such an institution was justified not only for removing the sense of injustice from the minds of adversely affected citizens but also necessary to instill public confidence in the efficiency of the administrative machinery.

However, while it was pending in the Rajya Sabha, the Lok Sabha was dissolved, and so the bill was not passed at that time.

... their talents and realize their potential. Obviously, nowadays, leadership is widely applied to the sphere of business and technologies. In fact, the role of business leaders as well as leaders in the domain of technologies, is of a paramount importance in the modern world because nowadays, the role of politics, for instance, seems to be not so important as it used to be in the past, while the role of business and advanced technologies has increased considerably. In fact, new technologies may be viewed as a major condition of a successful business as well as a guarantee of the political leadership of a country where these technologies are invented and widely implemented. This is why it is possible to estimate that the modern leader should be conscious of the importance of new technologies which can help him/her to improve his/her position in the leadership in a company or even politics. At the same time, the most successful leaders combine the leadership in different domains such as technologies and business. In this respect, it is possible to name Bill Gates as one of the most successful leaders of the present epoch.

Bill Gates

...Bill Gates There are very few individuals who have the ability to change the culture of the world by using their mind. It takes incredibly strong courage and belief in yourself to be able to have such a lasting impact. One individual who was able to do so was a man named, Bill Gates. We all most likely know the name behind one of the most infamous and influential products on the market, Microsoft. It is guaranteed that we take these products and services of Microsoft for granted. Most people use Microsoft office, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, on a regular basis but the story behind Microsoft doesn’t just begin with a “shazam” and then there was Microsoft. There were many ups and downs before Microsoft and Bill Gates hit the open market. The reason that Microsoft became such an empire was because of the man behind the scenes. It was Bill Gate’s leadership that excelled Microsoft past everyone else. Gates’ most prevalent leadership aspect was his innovation, his ability to see what the future needed. Gates was task oriented and diligent. He pushed his employees past their limits. He did so by inspiring confidence in the ones around him. Gates has the belief that there is never a light at the end of the tunnel, there is not an end ever in sight; there are always more challenges waiting, and being persistent is how you achieve your goals. Bill Gates is an incredible person. Gates fell in love with computers at a young age. At the time, computers were not...

...1. What are the assumptions implicit in Bill French’s determination of his company’s break-even point * Bill was using volume base costing, when he is doing calculation for O/H he didn't pay any attention to product base calculation. So he cannot know the effects of the product to cost. With his calculation it is not so easy to decide to go ahead to producing which products. * For the right break-even point calculation it is necessary to make a calculation product base break-even point. And Bill was thinking all the cost are remaining same, especially the variable costs. * At the same time Bill didn't realize there is a dividend which company has to pay every year and this year has additional dividend payment and union has some special request, it brings additional cost on variable cost. * Bill was thinking the sales and the production strategy for the product will remain same and he will be able to use empty capacity for C production. But the management will reduce the production of A product and will increase the production of C product. * There are also changes on sale price of C, this will also effect whole calculation 2.

Bill Clinton

...An essay on Bill CLinton In this essay I will consider the social, economic and political factors of Bill CLinton. Underestimate Bill CLinton at your peril. Indispensable to homosapians today, it is yet to receive proper recognition for laying the foundations of democracy. It is an unfortunate consequence of our civilizations history that Bill CLinton is rarely given rational consideration by those most reliant on technology, who form the last great hope for our civilzation. In the light of this I will break down the issues in order to give each of them the thought that they fully deserve Social Factors While some scholars have claimed that there is no such thing as society, this is rubbish. When blues legend 'Bare Foot D' remarked 'awooooh eeee only my dawg understands me' [1] he failed to understand that if one seriously intends to 'not judge a book by its cover', then one must read a lot of books. Both tyranny and democracy are tried and questioned. Yet Bill CLinton raises the question 'why?' Nothing represents every day life better than Bill CLinton, and I mean nothing. If society has a favourite child, it is Bill CLinton. Economic Factors Derived from 'oikonomikos,' which means skilled in household management, the word economics is synonymous with Bill CLinton. We will study the Greek-Roman model. For those of you unfamiliar with this model it is derived from the Three-Amigos model but with greater emphasis on the outlying gross national product. Cost...

Rh Bill

...The Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act of 2012 (Republic Act No. 10354), informally known as the Reproductive Health Law or RH Law, is a law in the Philippines, which guarantees universal access to methods on contraception, fertility control, sexual education, and maternal care. While there is general agreement about its provisions on maternal and child health, there is great debate on its mandate that the Philippine government and the private sector will fund and undertake widespread distribution of family planning devices such as condoms, birth control pills, and IUDs, as the government continues to disseminate information on their use through all health care centers. Passage of the legislation was controversial and highly divisive, with experts, academics, religious institutions, and major political figures declaring their support or opposition while it was pending in the legislature. Heated debates and rallies both supporting and opposing the RH Bill took place nationwide. The Supreme Court delayed implementation of the law in March 2013 in response to challenges. On April 8, 2014, the Court ruled that the law was "not unconstitutional" but struck down eight provisions partially or in full.[ Criticism[edit] Opponents of the bill argue that: People's freedom to access contraceptives is not restricted by any opposing law, being available in family planning NGOs, stores, etc. The country is not a welfare state: taxpayer's money should not be...

Bill Miller

...For example, Bill Miller’s Legg Mason Value Trust (ticker: LMVTX), a mutual fund that has beaten its benchmark (the S&P 500 index) in each of the last 14 calendar years, routinely holds stocks that have seen their prices drop substantially recently. In making that choice, Miller essentially selects stocks that appear to be in trouble, but are ones for which the market seems to have overreacted—he invests “where there is fear.”1 growth and value Rather, we simply point out that doing so exposes us to greater risk and requires us to conduct much more extensive analyses. We are reminded, however, of a quote from Mark Twain, “Put all your eggs in one basket and—WATCH THAT BASKET!”8 An advantage of holding fewer stocks is that it is easier to monitor them, but, in general, we must be extremely confident of our analyses in order to hold so few stocks he tends to select the stocks of companies that are financially sound. Where Miller deviates from many other fund managers is that he often chooses stocks that have been beaten down in recent months/years. This provides us with another lesson. In the aftermath of the Dennis Kozlowski scandal, the stock of Tyco (TYC) dropped from $60 to nearly $8. Miller believed that the scandal had little (if anything) to do with the company’s core business model, so he bought heavily. The stock has since rebounded to the mid $30s, giving Miller a sizable return on his investment. Miller describes this as buying “where there is fear.”2 The...

Bill Gates

...Jammie Hoffman Advanced Comp& Economics Research Paper 4/19/16 Bill Gates & the Success of Microsoft An entrepreneur is a risk-taker, someone who takes chances to pursue a goal. Entrepreneurs must understand what consumers want and must create a product that drives these consumers towards making a purchase. Understanding the patterns of an economy is a rather difficult task to handle, and only a select few are about to flourish with the way the economy functions. Either an entrepreneur will risk everything and fail, or they will manage to overcome the odds and create a project that could change the face of our economy. Many entrepreneurs fail to make a product successful and hardly any is as recognizable as the creator of Microsoft, Bill Gates. Bill (William) Gates was born on October, 28th, 1955 in Seattle, Washington to an upper- middle-class couple. Gates was the second of three children. Gates developed an early interest in computers and computer software after his parents enrolled him in a private school known as the Lakeside school (Foley). While at Lakeside, Gates met his eventual business partner, Paul Allen. Gates, 15 years old at the time, and Paul, who was two years older, proved their enthusiasm for computers by creating a software system known as “Traf-o-Data.” The objective of this system was to track traffic patterns throughout the city of Seattle. “Traf-o-Data” brought in $20,000 for the two young entrepreneurs (Editors). The system did not...

..., consider the sources of that success, and to decide on the sustainability of Miller’s performance. REQUIREMENT Based on the Bill Miller and value trust case study, answer the following questions: (1) How well has Value Trust performed in recent years? In making that assessment, what benchmark(s) are you using? How do you measure investment performance? What does good performance mean to you? (2) What might explain the fund’s performance? To what extent do you believe an investment strategy, such as Miller’s, explains performance? (3) How easy will it be to sustain Miller’s historical performance record into the future? What factors support your conclusion? (4) Consider the mutual fund industry. What roles do portfolio managers play? What are the differences between fundamental and technical securities analysis? How well do mutual funds generally perform relative to the overall market? (5) What is capital-market efficiency? What are its implications for investment performance in general? What are the implications for fund managers, if the market exhibits characteristics of strong, semi-strong, or weak efficiency? (6) Suppose that you are an advisor to wealthy individuals in the area of equity investments. In 2005, would you recommend investing in Miller’s Value Trust? What beliefs about the equity markets does your answer reflect? (7) The case mentions that Burton Malkiel suggests this example. What concept is he trying to illustrate, and how does......

...More views against the RH bill are pouring in. Apparently they have not been considered by the Lower House Committee before the bill was endorsed to the entire body for approval in the plenary session. Hence for the enlightenment of our legislators and the entire citizenry, presented here are some more of these views, one of them coming from a lawyer Atty. Rex A. Salvilla who clearly and ably refutes some stand of the bill’s advocates: “First, the advocates say that the opponents of RH bill are anti-poor for allowing population explosion. This is not true because the opponents, like the advocates are also for population control. Both differ only on the method of control – the advocates thru condom which cost money while the opponents thru natural family planning which costs not a single centavo but only mere discipline on the part of the spouses So, who is anti-poor? It is the advocates. Second, the advocates say that they are pro-choice. This is not also true. The draft bill contains a penal clause punishing by imprisonment and/or fine those obstructing the use of condoms and promoting family planning. Is this not like tying a person to a post and telling him, “You are free”? So, where is “pro-choice” here? In fact, the bill is a “no-choice” piece. Third, the advocates say that the Pope supports condom use. This is interpreting the Pontiff out of context. The Pope simply provided an exception in the same way that God has also provided exceptions to His own commandments...
