Simon Wiesenthal

...Simon Wiesenthal According to the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary, a “champion” is a person who fights for, or speaks in support of, a group of people or a belief. Also, the concept of “injustice” can be defined as the fact of a situation being unfair and of people not being treated equally. Simon Wiesenthal fits the definition of a champion in the fight against injustice because he stood up for his beliefs as a Nazi hunter. In my opinion, Simon Wiesenthal embodies the characteristics of a champion against injustice in terms of being a survivor, being a Nazi hunter, and founding the Jewish Historical Documentation Center. One of his important characteristics is being survivor. According to the reference book Encyclopedia of War Crimes and Genocide, Simon Wiesenthal was born on December 31, 1908, in Buczacs as a Jew. In 1936, he married Cyla Mueller and worked in an architectural office in Lvov. But their life was turned into misfortune because of the beginning of World War II. In 1941, he and his wife were assigned to the forced labor camp by the Nazis, and his mother was sent to Belzc death camp. While most of his and his wife’s relatives were dead; a total of eighty-nine families were killed, he was still alive although he was sent several camps. In 1945, he was liberated by an American armored unit and was a survivor of very few who survived. This fact made up his mind to be a Nazi hunter against injustice. Being a Nazi hunter is also his important......

Simon Bolivar

...SIMON BOLIVAR ONE COUNTRY, ONE BROKEN DREAM. Herbert Maduro Columbia Southern University SIMON BOLIVAR ONE COUNTRY, ONE BROKEN DREAM. Herbert Maduro Columbia Southern University Simon Bolivar has been considered by many historians as the liberator of the Americas, he lead an army that liberated Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia from the Spanish rule. Bolivar dreamed in having these countries unified as one big country called “The Gran Colombia”. These countries would have shared a centralized government and would have had the city of Bogota as its capital. In this article I want to explore the reasons why he could not achieve this dream of unifying these countries and if he had what economic and social impact this unification would had have in today’s economy. Simon Bolivar was born in Caracas; Venezuela on the 24th of July 1783 his family was wealthy and had close relationships to Spain. Bolivar was educated in Spain and came back to Venezuela with his young wife who died shortly after her arrival in Venezuela. Bolivar never married again. Bolivar has been underrated as a general and tactician, but is safe to say that he is probably in the top 50 Generals in World History. Simon Bolivar began his campaign of independence from Spain in 1810 with the independence of Venezuela, and then it followed Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia. It is important to note that some of these countries were in fact a part of the “viceroyalty of Nueva Granada”...

Marcus and Simon

...Marcus and Simon Case Study (Draft) As part of Core Ethical values, it is recommended that employees exercise good judgment in their professional practices and abide by all ethical principles as laid out in Company’s code of conduct manual. It is all employees’ responsibility to adhere to a high level of honesty, integrity and self-discipline at the work place. In the case of Marcus and Simon, I think Simon should “Take the Bull by the horns” and do what is appropriate in the interest of fairness and for the good of the Company and public at large. Marcus may have been a friendly boss, and Godfather to Simon’s two children. He should lean more towards loyalty to the profession. It is true that Marcus is an even-tempered man and a real professional. That notwithstanding, the quality of his work has begun to slide and if proper action is not taken, it could lead to a catastrophic end of the company. Marcus is going through serious personal struggle. Marcus’ marriage of twenty years is ending abruptly due to infidelity on the part of his wife. The situation is taking a toll on him, and negatively impacting his job performance. Several Marcus’ colleagues have become aware of what he is going through and offered to help but he declined their offer. This could be pried taking over common sense. I believe Simon should follow his hunch that if proper action is not taken, Marcus’ errors will impact the firm and will in turn have terrible consequences for both the public and......

Herbert Simon Public Lesson

...Leksioni publik i Herbert Simon “Administrata në botën e sotme të organizatave dhe tregjeve” Dr, Herbert në këtë video jep një leksion për nder të John M. Gaus. Në dokumetat e tij ende gjenden disa letra të Dr.Gaus drejtuar një kolegu të ri si ai rreth viteve ’50. Sipas tij puna e Gaus së bashku me Leon O’ Ëolcott sot vazhdon të hedhë dritë të vlefshme mbi faktin se si organizatat krijohen dhe të rriten, shpesh nën ndikimin e teknologjisë. Në fakt, analiza GAUS dhe Ëolcott e ndërveprimit të ndërveprimit, ndryshimit organizativ dhe teknologjik rezonon fort me interesin e sotëm në proceset dhe normat e rritjes së organizatave publike dhe bizneseve. Studimi mbi Organizatat Komplekse Sipas Dr.Herbert ekonomite noeklasike kanë krijuar një kuadër të unifikuar për të shpjeguar pothuaj të gjitha sjelljet e njeriut. Kjo kornize neoklasike mori një ekuilibër statik dhe gjithnjë e më tepër vëmëndja përqëndrohej drejt fenomeneve dinamike dhe pasigurive më të mëdha apo sistemeve sociale komplekse.

Këto pyetje shkojnë në zemër të roleve qe kanë insitucionet e ndryshme politike dhe administrative, publike dhe private në këtë shoqëri bashkëkohore....

Leadership can be described as a way of social control that sees a person getting the support and aid of others on completing a specific task (Adair, 2005). Thus, effective leadership is the ability to effectively incorporate and exploit existing resources within an organization for the accomplishment of the goals and objectives of such organization (Northouse, 2004). The issue of leadership continues to be a famous concept. Despite the fact that lots has been written about leadership, the importance of leadership has not diminished.

Within BPR there are numerous activities and decisions to be made and most of these will have an ethical dimension. There are issues relating to both the process and the outcome of BPR.

The two most ethically significant are: Prof. Simon Rogerson • Make sure that you know what re-engineering really is before you attempt to do it and then do it, not something else. Any successful re-engineering effort must take into account the personal needs of the individuals it will affect. The new process must offer some benefit to the people who are, after all, being asked to embrace enormous change, and the transition from the old process to the new one must be made with great sensitivity to their feelings. • Opinion recently canvassed from BPR practitioners and employees affected by BPR initiatives located in the UK, USA, the Netherlands and Sweden revealed a number of ethical issues which included: 1 Business Process Re-engineering • • • • The......

The atmosphere in this part of the text also tells us that something is going to happen in Gerard's life. In the beginning he also talks about the past, he talks about his old, English prep teacher Hetherington who won a medal at the Olympics while Adolf Hitler watched, and he talks about the second World War: "Millions were about to be killed as teenage Hetherington crossed the finish line. A few years later, children walked into gas ovens after a long journey from home." - P.1/l.15-17. Just things from the past, which probably is an introduction to when he...
