My husband is a generation older than I am, so I decided to interview him on his growing up in a German/Polish home, in the 1950’s and 1960’s. His mother was an immigrant from Germany with her oldest son, during the Korean War which his father fought in and met his mother and brought her back to the United States.

His father’s family did everything to make his new wife miserable with her son. They had three more children including my husband in the middle.

There was a lot of abuse in the family. His father retired from the military to work for the railroad which was a great job, but the war really messed up his head and after work he would head to the local bar and get drunk every night and then come home and beat the kids, drag them out of bed in the wee hours of the morning and make them do any chores that weren’t done that day or redo any chores that weren’t done satisfactory after a beating.

It wasn’t like todays times were social services could step in and yell child abuse and take the kids out of the house. My husband was forced to quit school and go to work at the age of 16. His father said that he needed to help the family that a high school diploma was useless.

Well that’s about all about his life that I got out of him without him going into tears except that his grandma made him call her by her first name, so he never had a…...

He said "Let me in, Let me in, little pig or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!" "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the little pig.

"Let me in ,Let me in little pig or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in" "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the little pig.

" Let me in , let me in" cried the wolf "Or I'll huff and I'll puff till I blow your house in" "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin" said the pigs.

One of his classmate’s told authorities that he believed Huff would carry out the threat. After the officer’s found out that Huff had been bullied and that he missed a few days of school and that raised great concern for the officers. After talking to the principal and Huffs’ classmates they wanted to talk to Huff. Upon arrival to Huffs’ residence they knocked on the door and announced themselves several times, but no one answered the door. The officers made several phone calls to contact Vincent’s parents. They finally got in contact with his mother and both she and Vincent met the officers outside. The officers then requested they talk inside the home, but Mrs. Huff didn’t want to do so and this raised suspicion.

Starbucks Social Media Now to take a look into the social media of the competitor Starbucks. In my research I found that their social media management team doesn’t post updates on Facebook often but when they do, however, they’re usually eye-catching and clever (Huff, T. 2014). On Twitter they like to reach out to anyone that talks about there in-store or product experiences. I seen it myself when you go to their twitter page and someone tags them to a tweet they will reply to the tweet and send the company number and times to call and fail a complaint. The social media team at Starbucks has a great way of making customer on the social network feel as if they are in a local coffee shop (Huff, T. 2014). One reason behind their social media success is that drinking coffee is a social activity. People love to meet over coffee and swap stories and build coffee buddy’s (Huff, T. 2014). No matter what Starbuck social network you visit, the Starbucks touch is evident. Dunkin Donuts Social Media Now taking a look at Dunkin Donuts and their social media.

Reward and Recognition Programs for Effective Tqm

...achievements and efforts (Campbell-Allen, Houston & Mann, 2008). The data from “World at Work” surveys has demonstrated that being dissatisfied with employers, in 2003, approximately one-third of employees were considering other jobs while by early 2007, over 54% of employees were poised to leave for other job alternatives (Huff, 2007). P. B. Crosby stated that “people really don’t work for money. They go to work for it, but once the salary has been established, their concern is appreciation” (Knouse, 1995). To ensure internal customer satisfaction, the total quality management organizations have launched programs for recognizing and rewarding efforts and accomplishments of their personnel. The reward and recognition programs, constituting monetary or non-monetary means for rewarding and recognizing employee achievements and efforts, revolve around the psychological concept that human behavior is driven by motivation According to 2006 comparative stock performance analysis by the Russell Investment Group, due to the effective reward and recognition programs employed in Fortune’s “Best 100 Companies to Work For, the cumulative returns from 1998 to 2005 were 200.6%” (Huff, 2007).  Although the implementation of the reward and recognition systems was shown to be a contributing factor for TQM practices, numerous organizations have been slow in adopting the programs as they assume that the reward and recognition programs are automatically in place” and simply require......

They need money just like the rest of us to survive. Sometimes getting a free education just isn’t enough. Either if it is the school or the NCAA that pays the athlete, someone needs to give these players what is owed to them. Works Cited Siebold, Steve.

Noir Anti-Hero

...The Noir Anti-Hero: How Walter Huff Reflects Depression-Era Society The anti-hero of Double Indemnity, Walter Huff, is a reflection of the greed, lust, and corruption of the evils of society during the Great Depression. The anti-hero must navigate his way through the external landscape of depression-era Los Angeles in an attempt to survive the urban wilderness in perhaps some very non-conventional ways. Despite this, the anti-hero is relatable to the reader since he is not seen as a typical hero, but rather a flawed moral character. Ambiguity is a key characteristic of noir and surrounds the love triangle of the anti-hero, femme fatale, and the crime committed. Noir is a genre of hard-boiled crime dramas, which originated in America in the 1930s and 1940s, during and post WWII. The films and novels that were associated with this genre reflected how the world was viewed during and after the war⎯cold, heartless and cruel. A noir anti-hero is the main character of a story that lacks the characteristics of a typical hero, but is relatable to the audience. He usually functions outside social norms and challenges the system. Hardboiled detective is a tough, cynical style of writing that brought an aspect of realism to the genre of detective fiction. It is often a gritty detective story set in a world overrun with violence and corruption. The way that Cain describes depression-era Los Angeles is a reflection of society during that time period. The anti-hero is morally......

The new CIO should handle these three challenges by first creating IS mission and vision statements followed by a strategic plan that is aligned with business strategy as shown in figure 1.

Genre Conventions of Film Noire

...typical characteristics of a Femme Fatale. In Double Indemnity, Phyllis who plays the role of a Femme Fatale causes death intentionally because of her greed for her husband’s money who died as a result of an accident she planned with Huff. Keyes describes her as a ‘Cobra’. Both Phyllis and Laura are typical Femme Fatales consciously aware of their actions to fulfill their greed. Most Femme Fatales meet their downfall in the end just like Phyllis did in Double Indemnity where she was shot by Huff. Nevertheless, the women of film noir often evoke sympathy, as they are frequently victims of emotional or physical abuse, with such victimization fueling their vengeance. They are trapped in passionless or violent marriages and resort to murder as a means of escape, usually destroying everything in the process. The use of visuals is a significant feature in Film Noire because the lightning is very dark and particularly obscure, this is often used predominantly in intense situations to add to the uncertainty of the scene. Shadows are also used to obscure the protagonist’s and other character’s faces. In reference to Double Indemnity; Huff said ‘the night light over his head was the only light in the room’ which meant the obscuring of Keyes face made Huff unable to predict Keyes action so he was nervous that moment. Most classic film noir movies were low budget, and low on film company equipment such as lighting. Most American Film Noire’s came about through the making of what......
