Current Event Focus

...Current Event Focus 1 For my current event focus I decided to examine the article named: Free Trade and Globalization by Anup Shah because it talks in great detail about how the world is becoming more globalized, there is no doubt about that. While that sounds promising, this article describes how the current form of globalization, neoliberalism, free trade and open markets are coming under much criticism (Shah, 2011). The interests of powerful nations and corporations are shaping the terms of world trade. In democratic countries, they are shaping and affecting the ability of elected leaders to make decisions in the interests of their people (Shah, 2011). In addition the author describes that elsewhere they are promoting narrow political discourse and even supporting dictatorships and the “stability” that it brings for their interests. This is to the detriment of most people in the world, while increasingly fewer people in proportion are prospering (Shah, 2011). In consequence, the author makes the reader aware of how the western mainstream media, hardly provides much debate, gladly allowing this economic liberalism (a largely, but not only, politically conservative stance) to be confused with the term political liberalism (to do with progressive and liberal social political issues) (Shah, 2011). Margaret Thatcher's slogan of “there is no alternative” rings sharply. Finally, I loved this article because it left me with a great question in mind; perhaps there is no...

...Firdawsi in the Shah-nama skillfully employs foreshadowing to create suspense, emphasize the tragedy, and portray the mood. Foreshadowing is very important and change the way a story is read. Firdawsi did a great good of foreshadowing when he wrote the Shah-nama. The Shah-nama is a tragedy that tells the story of Rustam and Suhrab. Rustam is a mighty leader who unknowingly kills his son Suhrab. Creating suspense in any story is very important to keep a reader entertained and actively reading the story. One way this can be done is by foreshadowing. In the Shah-nama, Firdawsi, the author uses foreshadowing to create suspense. “Let us dismiss such fancies from our hearts, for he will come to fight with me tomorrow.(4) This creates suspense because Suhrab is expecting another battle tomorrow. One can be lead to believe that the fight will be epic battle. One can also be lead to believe that Rustam will find out the truth. In conclusion this is how Firdawsi used foreshadowing to create suspense. A tragedy will often be the topic of a poem. Firdawsi used foreshadowing to emphasize the tragedy in the Shah-nama. “My mother told me I should recognize my father”(5). This is where Rustam figures out he might have a connection to Suhrab. The reader can also predict that the truth will come out and Suhrab will provide proof that he is Rustam’s seed. This also emphasizes how tragic the kill of one’s child can be. As you can see foreshadowing is important in a story especially when...

...Internal and external factors Introduction In this assignment I will discuss the internal and external factors to consider when planning human resource requirements. I will also discuss Luton sixth form and explain why human resource planning is important. What are they? Internal factors- These are factors that the HRM have control on and can be changed or adapted. External factors – Whereas external factors are factors that cannot be controlled they are factors that are ‘outside’ the business/organisation. Demand for new products and services: Internal factors are usually factors that can potentially affect the college. These are factors that can be changed, for example the trend off students choosing a course in Luton sixth form changes every couple or few years this may change for many reasons but one of the main reasons why it may change is Luton sixth form not offering specific qualifications for jobs that are available and therefore the human resource management has too adapt too this, they may have to recruit qualified teachers to adapt to the course trend or they could possibly could train already existing teachers too be able to teach the course that is in trend. A real example of this has happened before too LSFC, when a couple of years back the course ‘travel and tourism’ that still exists today was very popular although today this has changed dramatically, a fall in ‘travel and tourism’ has lowered due to the limited job available with the course...

...Module 1 Assignment 3: Risky Decision Presented to Dr. John Muehl Argosy University Methods & Analysis of Qualitative Research |  B7783 BLB March 3 , 2014 Pratik Shah Each year millions of people cross the U.S. borders illegally in search of the American dream — a land of freedom and opportunity that can provide them and their families with a quality of life they cannot enjoy in their home countries. Throughout the 2000s, Americans became increasingly concerned with illegal immigration, citing the rising cost of illegal immigrants and the strain they place on public services such as the education, legal, and emergency medical systems in the U.S. With some 11 to 12 million illegal immigrants currently residing in the U.S. and working in jobs that most Americans will not do, illegal immigrants feel they are a crucial part of the economic prosperity enjoyed by U.S. citizens.With many varying opinions about illegal immigrants, people on all sides of the issue are calling for immigration reform. Everyday citizens, business leaders, and immigrants, legal and illegal, are making their views known to lawmakers in an attempt to spur immigration reform that will fairly address the problem of illegal immigration and provide a solution that is beneficial to all people residing and working in the U.S today. Immigration Reform is obviously a big issue in America today. I mean everywhere you go; you either see something about or read about it. There is no exact number as to...

Social Media and the Business World Today

... SNS are Facebook, MySpace, and Friendster (23 Types, 2010). A similar type of social medium is a professional network. Although a professional network is more of a business related version of an SNS. People normally use a professional network to stay in touch with business associates rather than friends and relatives. Most widely known of this type of social medium is LinkedIn (23 Types, 2010). Blogs are yet another type of social medium. The word “blog” was created by combining two other words together, “web” and “log” (Brown, 2008, pg. 29). The reasoning behind using these two words was that a blog itself is a form of a log or list of posts that are located on the web (Brown, 2008, pg. 29). A blog can be about pretty much any topic (Brown, 2008, pg. 29). And once a person has written their first blog, they can then refer to themselves as a “blogger” (Brown, 2008, pg. 30). Some of the most well-known blogging sites are WordPress, Blogger, and Type Pad (23 Types, 2010). In addition to blogs, there are also microblogs. Microblogs are simply a shorter version of a regular blog (23 Types, 2010). Twitter is by far the most widely known microblog (23 Types, 2010). But how can these forms of social media benefit the business world? One of the ways that companies use social media is for branding (Turner and Shah, 2011, pg. 39). This method is merely an effort to attract attention to the company’s products or services (Turner and Shah, 2011, pg. 39). An example of...

Battles of Aurangzeb

...BATTLE OF KHAJWA- Battle of Khajwa (Khajuha) was a battle fought on January 5, 1659, between the newly coroneted Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb and Shah Shuja who also declared himself Mughal Emperor in Bengal.  After capturing Lahore and gaining the support of the Muslim Rajputs in the region, Aurangzeb set out on another expedition towards the eastern territories of the Mughal Empire in Bengal with the sole objective of defeating his brother Shah shuja BATTLE OF SAMUGARH- Battle of Samugarh, Jang-e-Samugarh, (May 29, 1658), was a decisive battle in the struggle for the throne during the Mughal war of succession (1658-1659) between the sons of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan after the emperor's serious illness in September 1657. The battle of Samugarh was fought between his sons Dara Shikoh (the eldest son and heir apparent) and his two younger brothers Aurangzeband Murad Baksh (third and fourth sons of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan).[1] Although Dara Shikoh was the most powerful man in the Mughal Empire after his father Shah Jahan, he knew little about the art of war and military command. His loosely knit army eventually crumbled and even refused to aid each other. The ferocious assault by Murad Baksh was very successful, although he was eventually wounded and his horse was killed. Despite being surrounded by the Rajputs and the Deccan Sowars, Murad Bakshmanaged to protect himself and his elite Mughal Sowars until the end of the battle. He is also known to have killed Raja......

Shah Abdul Latif

...SHAH ABDUL LATIF A very rare phenomenon pertains to Sindh, not found anywhere else in the world; that is the association of a poet and a saint with its soil, so much so that Sindh seems soulless without the name of an illustrated spiritualized poet of many dimensions, Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, was an obtrusive missionary, a thinker, a mystic, a great scholar, a poet and a keen observer. He drew his inspiration from the Quran. There are ample facts, which prove that he had remarkably extensive knowledge of the Sindh language, thus, considered as a greatest Muslim poet of Sindhi language. Shah Jo Risalo is a poetic compendium of famous Sindhi Sufi poet Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai. His collected poems were assembled, which exists in numerous versions and has been translated to English, Urdu, and other languages. His work has been compared frequently to great Persian poets. The traditional compilations of Shah Jo Risalo include 30 Surs. These Surs contain Bayts which Shah Latif sang in state of ecstasy. These Bayts in the Surs concerning the life-stories of his heroines. Suhni, Sassui, Lila, Mumal, Marui, Nuri and Sorath. They are concerned with the moments of denouncements in life-stories, which he used as allegories to express his mystical experiences. Shah Jo Risalo, written in very pure and concise Sindhi verses, is great storehouse not only for Muslims but also for the Hindus. Shah Abdul Latif has hidden his mystical ideas under layers of symbols taken from all spheres of...

...Noah Brasseur - 4/24/12 - Nader Shah (1688-1747): Nader Shah ruled as Shah of Iran (1736-47) and is best known for his military genius. He is compared to some of the great military strategists like Alexander and Napoleon by historians. Nader came into power during a time of anarchy after the rebellion of the Afghans (1719) had overthrown an unstable Safavid dynasty. Russians and Ottoman's also began to claim territory in northwest Iran.  Nader started the re-conquest of Persia by driving the Afghans out of Khorasan by 1729. Current Shah of the time Tamasp II lost lands in Armenia and Georgia battling against the Ottomans. This angered Nader, who was making much progress in recapturing Persia, and led him dispose Tamasp and Shah while promoting his son to power. Not soon after, Nader recaptured lost lands to the Russians and Ottoman's and was named Shah thereafter. Nader decided that he didn't want to return to former Persia and as a result he cut off members of the Safavid dynasty. After invading India and achieving great success, Nader had reached the zenith of his career. Though after this point, he became more much paranoid. While in India, he relegated his son to rule Persia in his absence. Having heard rumors of his father's death, he began to prepare for his own rise to power by murdering family members of Tamasp's family. Nader was furious at his son and required him to marry Genghis Khan's daughter, but he refused. In 1741, Nader was almost killed by an assassin...
