First of all, I’m not sure who created these Golden Rules, but they do not apply to a majority of work environments. They do not take into account the size of the company, the number of employees, or the style in which the business is managed. I will focus on a “not so Golden Rule” that I strongly disagree with. Rule 2. Cater to every need – make it easy, not hard, for people to perform. I don’t believe the best results come from catering to every need of an employee if you are a manager/owner. It is a manager’s duty to point their employees in the right direction, but to provide them with everything they need is just not practical, and in some cases, impossible. Also, the more dependent an employee becomes on a manager, the less adequate he will be on his own. It is essential to provide the proper training and possible resources for success, but to cater to someone’s needs builds dependency, and discourages resourcefulness. A manager should reinforce the idea that being able to find answers is just as good as knowing all the answers. If you catch a fish for a man, he can eat for a day. If you teach him how to fish, he can eat for life.
Here is a true Golden Rule that should be added to this list: Praise publicly, reprimand privately. When someone does well, let everyone in the company know. This will create a positive image for the employee and boost his morale tremendously. To let someone know that they are appreciated is a tool that is slowly forgotten and left unused. Public praising creates a culture of positivity and motivation. Other employees will strive for the same recognition, which in return, will increase productivity. However, if an employee does the opposite, a manager should reprimand in private. This will ensure the idea that it is not acceptable to have reoccurring mistakes. Since the employee is held accountable, he should make an effort to avoid further reprimands. The reason it is done in private is because the point of a reprimand is to encourage the employee to get back on track without embarrassment or shame.

Radio Programme

...Title of Radio Programme: ‘Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy’ Format: Adult Contemporary (Oldies) Time of Show: Drive (4.00 pm- 7.00pm) Concepts: I. SPACE Radio’s Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy show aims to help people to get their mind off work/school and bring back 'the good old days' feeling with the help of hit adult contemporary songs from the 60s to 90s. The overall idea of the show is, by tuning in, listeners can put their stress and problems aside and relive their font memories from back then so that they can end of the day with a good note. It is a very chill and relaxed radio show, where listeners are able to let loose and interact with the DJs during the different show segments where it is further elaborated on. II. According to Robert Fontenot (Fontenot, 2016), Adult Contemporary (Oldies) is pure pop oldies from 1961 to the birth of soft rock in the early 70s. AC as it is understood today features the lighter side of the radio, but the classic sound of AC remains lush 60s pop, often vocal-based and rooted in traditional European styles. The genre generally targets people of 30 years and above, where they can enjoy their favourite hits back in the day in this generation. However, it also targets the younger generation because it makes them appreciate the good old classic songs that their parents love. III.

Live: on the Air

...Live: On the Air “Turn it up, that’s my song” is what may be heard when riding down the road with friends. What is it? It is the art of radio broadcasting satisfying the ears of people world wide. It not only affects the ears, but the mind, body and soul as well. Radio Stations in effect are designed to satisfy the psychographics of consumers. It is now easier than ever for anyone to start up a personal radio station worldwide, whether it be internet or mainstream. A majority of people have “their” radio stations that they listen to because to the senses, it is a satisfaction. The process of presenting a radio show to the public is more than just playing songs but rather like putting on a “Broadway” production behind the scenes, from running advertising campaigns to giving away tickets to a concert. “Even if you are new to radio broadcasting and haven't had any experience in the industry before, we can help you to achieve your ambition to start a FM radio station.” (Hoganwest). Starting a radio station can be done within a specific budget, big or small. Both new and experienced groups and individuals may have the opportunity to acquire a short distance frequency station or long distance frequency station to broadcast on. The frequency that is decided upon has a lot to do with the distance in which a broadcast will carry through as well as affecting the amount of the targeted market listeners that will hear the broadcast. After start up cost- licenses, service fees,......

'O Brother Where Art Thou' Film Review

...“O Brother Where Art Thou” review by Nicholas Drake “O Brother Where Art Thou” is a film, that if you have not yet seen it, you should do so. It takes little to know time to recognize the influence of Homer’s The Odyssey in the film, as it is based off of the epic. Set in rural Mississippi in the 1940’s, we join the story where Ulysses McGill (George Clooney), Pete (John Turturro), and Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson) are escaping prison in a search for a “hidden treasure”. Along their journey, the three cross paths with bank robbers, con artists, a mass baptism, and they almost see their demise. The music used in the film, contributes tremendously to its tone. The use of oldies and bluegrass music makes for a better viewing experience because of the visuals used in the film. Farmlands, cotton fields, dirt roads, and Dapper Dan’s hair pomade along with the music used in the film help create the experience of what life was like in rural Mississippi during the 1940’s. Ulysses McGill, played by George Clooney, acts as an Odysseus like character. Though his performance is not knock-your-socks-off good, Clooney does do the role justice and carries the sarcastic comedy that occurs frequently in the film. Turturro and Nelson’s characters, Pete and Delmar serve as sidekicks to Clooney but contribute to the plot seamlessly. Other characters like Big Dan played by John Goodman and Babyface Nelson played by Michael Baddalucco serve as plot twisters in the film. While their roles do not......

Critical Analysis of Stand by Me

...friends Gordy (Wil Wheaton), Chris(River Phoenix), Teddy(Corey Feldman) and Vern(Jerry O'Connell) embark n a treachorous hike to discover the body of a local boy who is presumed dead. During their trip they have to scramble for food, dodge trains, avoid local bullies, remove leeches and protect equipment from aterrifying dog named Chopper.Throughout their adventure the best buds also come to grips with issues in their personal lives There were many techniques used to help tell the story for Stand By Me. First off, most scenes involve all four of the main characters. This made me feel the togetherness of their group and showed how much of a bond they really had with each other. The sound was great, particularly the soundtrack. The oldies helped place you in the 50's, as well as the jargon used by the characters. The setting for most of the film was outdoors and most the time along the train tracks they were following. A lot of wide camera shots and angles were used to give the viewer a better idea of their surroundings and the tremendous journey they were facing. One scene stands out to me the most. The gang was crossing a tall railroad bridge and a train was heard bearing down on them. The wide angle shot displayed the boys running for their lives with the train bearing down on them. The theme of the movie. Socially, was the dysfunctional families that the boys lived with daily. Teddy, the son of a WWII...

How Music Affected My Life

...helps me to prepare for the long day thats ahead of me. Although it may not be, I beleive music is the answer to all my life problems as it has been there throughout my whole life. I feel I can always depend on good music. I first fell in love with music when I was a young girl . I remember listening to "The Little Mermaid" soundtrack over and over on my pink walkman. Just the lyrics and melody took me to another place . Ever since then, music has been a huge part of my life. I listen to everything from 2Pac , Nas , Lil Wayne and Jay Z (Rap) Aaliyah, RKelly, Mary J Blige and Alicia Keyz (R&B) The Police, Metallica, AC/DC, Journey and U2 ( Pop/Rock) and my favorite Oldies from The Gap Band, Chacka Khan, The O'Jays, Aretha Franklin, The Chi-Lites, The Spinners oh' sheesh' the list goes on. It's kind of hard to just focus on one event or genre of music where music has affected my life. Because not only has it affected my life it has got me and continues to get me through my day to day life and struggles. I recently witnessed the passing of my Great Grandparents in November 2015 3 days apart. They were the most amazing people in my life besides my actual parents. They were the defintion of love, joy, happiness, and what a family was supposed to be . They taught me everything I know. We would go out of town on these longs trips to their......

Soundtrack of My Life

...seemed like such a peaceful world. As I got older I realized there is a lot kids don’t realize. At the time I really wasn’t listening to the same music as the so-called popular kids, I more listened to what my parents listened to, which I think may have influenced me to not want to be like the other kids and listen to certain music or do certain things just to “fit in” with them. As for my adolescence, I listened to many different genres of music. I never really was one that just listened to one type of music. I was always open to new things, except country and classical music. I wanted nothing to do with those in my adolescence. Some of the main artists I can think of are: Alice in Chains, Metallica, Nirvana, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, oldies and I also liked most dance/bass cds. When I was 16 and had a system in my car, like most teens did at that time, I liked most music that sounded good with the bass. I don’t think I used this music to fit in or rebel, I just listened to what I liked. I didn’t hang out with any certain “type” of people. Most of my friends also listened to many different types of music like I did. I didn’t judge people on the type of music they listened to....

Wedding Music Essay

...are full of warmth, music is vital for the soul! No celebration is ever a celebration without music. Your wedding procession requires a background tune that keeps humming by itself inside your brain, in the most unexpected times in life, reminding you of the walk down the aisle that you had on your big day. This calls for appointing a wedding band to play live “your song.” Hence, an efficient and talented band is required to be hunted for and hired for your wedding. While hiring a DJ is the trend today for any party, it is loud and requires all the guests to be on the dance floor in order to enjoy. Hence, the scope for memorable conversations with the special someone during those special moments is highly diminished. Also, the sweet little oldies who turn up at the wedding kind of get left out while the DJ jams to Dubstep. A nice live band that plays your favourite tune, yes, of course, Adam Levine songs too ladies, is totally enjoyed by all. Toronto wedding band and their musicians are famous for their melodious, foot-tapping music they provide to enthral the audience at weddings, parties and other social events. While the dance floor option is also available and the souls young at the heart can shake a leg, this proves a pretty good choice for social gatherings like weddings. Of course, you can contrast the two - DJ vs live band, and see what suits your occasion. Wedding music cannot be replaced by any rumbustious DJ, playing some loud electronic music. It is a solemn day,......

Nick at Night

...Nickelodeon general manager Geraldine Laybourne to develop programming to fill the time period that would be vacated (once A&E became a separate channel in January 1985, Nickelodeon simply displayed a test pattern screen after the network signed off). After futile attempts at original program development, Laybourne asked programming and branding consultants Alan Goodman and Fred Seibert of Fred/Alan Inc. (successful as the original branders of MTV, and for Nickelodeon's extensive 1984 rebranding) to come up with programming ideas. After being presented with over 200 episodes of The Donna Reed Show (a 1950s sitcom which Laybourne despised), Goodman and Seibert conceived the idea of the "first oldies TV network." They modeled the new evening and overnight programming block on the successful oldies radio format, "The Greatest Hits of All Time," and branded the block with their next evolution of MTV- and Nickelodeon-style imagery and bumpers. Head programmer Debby Beece led the team to the name "Nick at Nite" for the new block; a logo originally conceived for the block was based on Nickelodeon's "pinball" logo introduced in 1981, which was discontinued with that network's rebrand. Fred/Alan developed the original logo with Tom Corey and Scott Nash of Boston advertising firm Corey McPherson Nash, creators of the well-recognized Nickelodeon orange logo (Nick at Nite's logo design would maintain a separate visual...

...Social Networks: A blessing or a curse? Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. All common names that you all know and love and probably use every day. But I’m here today to ask you all one question. Are social networks a blessing or a curse? I bet that almost none of you here today have ever even thought about these social networks being anything but a blessing. Well, now is the time to start, because believe it or not, social networks could be more trouble than they’re worth. Now don’t get me wrong, I think social networks are great. I mean who doesn’t love wasting their lives with their faces stuck to a screen just to see what their next door neighbour had for tea? Okay, okay, I do have to admit that social networks do have their up sides. For example, they can help you keep in contacts with your friends that you see every day. They can also help you to forget about all of your responsibilities and make sure that you never get anything productive completed. Our whole generation has become oblivious to the world around them because they are constantly checking their mobile devices to get updates on what their friends are thinking. That must mean that there is something good about social networking sites. Oh, I know. It must be the fact that since there has been a rise in popularity of social networks, there has also been a rise in the rates of depression amongst teenagers due to the amount of cyberbullying. That’s great isn’t it? So why do we love these social networks so much?......
