...BOOK REVIEW UNKNOWN * Didier Van Cauwelaert Previously known as OUT OF MY HEAD Translated from the French by Mark Polizzotti This novel was made into a movie titled Unknown in 2011 (hence the re-publication of the book under that title), directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and starring Liam Neeson, Frank Langella, and Bruno Ganz This is a suspense thriller full of suspense. Once you start reading the suspense goes on increasing. But still author has created too much of confusion in the novel like skipping from one scene to another directly. The story end was also very quick. Since this novel is translated from French it has increased the confusion. Otherwise everything is good. Those who want to read something good can choose this novel. The story revolves around the man named Martin Harris a well known botanist who meets in an accident when he comes to Parris with his wife Liz.

Into the Unknown

...A critique of “Into the unknown” by The Economist Nowadays, the change in production technology make many workers worry because of its effects. However, almost of them forget that the changes that bring bad effects (destroy jobs) also make good ones (create new jobs). It may be a chance for someone but be challenge for others, we do not know. All predictions can become true or not. It depends on supply and demand in the labor market, possibility of workers to adapt with the change of the world. In “Into the unknown” The Economist states that “this change in production technology has the same effects as automation”. Actually, many firms and companies fire their workers and replace them by new machines or foreign workers with lower-paid. Many workers who is fired think that the change in production technology is terrible because it takes their jobs away. However, according to the economist “What the worriers always forget is that the same changes in production technology that destroy jobs also create new ones”. The reason here is that when companies replace their workers by new machines or lower-paid workers, the cost decrease while the profit increase. It causes the growth of demand for new goods and services then creates new jobs that have not been invented yet. Furthermore, these changes require economies renew workers to create more value....

Into the Unknown

...A critique of “Into the unknown” published by the economist (November 13, 2004.) Fear of losing jobs to offshoring (rise in unemployment), but computers and technology may take these jobs anyway. “Has the machines in its last furious manifestation begun to eliminate workers faster than new task can be found for them?” Article says not to worry. The United States has experienced an increase in the offshore outsourcing (offshoring) of jobs in the service industry. Although offshoring is common in the manufacturing industry, it only recently began in the service industry. The recent increase in the service industry has occurred because of new technology and the ability to access information from anywhere. Those who oppose offshoring believe it takes away American jobs, lower wages, and causes declines in America’s standard of living and any benefits from offshoring are unevenly distributed. Offshoring in the industry has not negatively affected the United States. Currently, offshore outsourcing in the service industry has a net benefit to society and there is no reason for concern. Critics charge that the information revolution (especially the Internet) has accelerated the decimation of U.S. manufacturing and facilitated the outsourcing of service sector jobs once considered safe, from backroom call centers to high level software programming....

...Ice cream is the quintessential cold treat that keeps the world going round, yet has an unknown point or origin or originator. History determines ice cream to exist as far back as 200 B.C. The bible references King Solomon’s fondness of sweet iced drinks during harvesting periods. Alexander the Great preferred honey and nectar flavored snow treats. Claudius Caesar was known for sending runners into the mountain for snow, later flavoring the snow with fruit juice. Sherbet ice cream was first recorded in the 16th century as a treat brought to Europe by Marco Polo from the far east. (IDFA, 2015). Most notable was Cream Ice, a favored dessert of the court of Charles I in the 17th Century. Historians state King Charles I paid a handsome salary of 500 pounds per year to chef DiMirco for keeping the recipe a secret. DiMirco kept the recipe secret until the beheading of King Charles I in 1649. (Vandenbark, 2008). Paris Café Procope, was the first establishment to bring ice cream to the public around 1660.

..."An Evaluation of President Obama's First Year and a Half as POTUS" Introduction Barrack Obama became the 44th President of the United States of America on January 20th, 2009. He is the first African American to take office and with his presidency he promised to make changes to America that would liberate the American people from crisis into a bright new beginning. In his Inauguration speech, he claimed to mend the financial crisis by stimulating jobs and laying a “new foundation for growth” (Naughton, “Inauguration speech”). He promised to rebuild the Nation’s foundations such as roads, bridges, electric grids, and digital lines, to revive the prosperity and importance of science, to increase the care and lower the cost of health care, to mend the threat of global warming, to enact peace with Afghanistan, to withdraw from Iraq, and to transform the educational system to meet the conditions of a new era (Naughton, “Inauguration speech”).

...“HAS the machine in its last furious manifestation begun to eliminate workers faster than new tasks can be found for them?” wonders Stuart Chase, an American writer. “Mechanical devices are already ousting skilled clerical workers and replacing them with operators...Opportunity in the white-collar services is being steadily undermined.” The anxiety sounds thoroughly contemporary. But Mr Chase's publisher, MacMillan, “set up and electrotyped” his book, “Men and Machines”, in 1929. The worry about “exporting” jobs that currently grips America, Germany and Japan is essentially the same as Mr Chase's worry about mechanisation 75 years ago. When companies move manufacturing plants from Japan to China, or call-centre workers from America to India, they are changing the way they produce things. This change in production technology has the same effect as automation: some workers in America, Germany and Japan lose their jobs as machines or foreign workers take over. This fans fears of rising unemployment. What the worriers always forget is that the same changes in production technology that destroy jobs also create new ones. Because machines and foreign workers can perform the same work more cheaply, the cost of production falls. That means higher profits and lower prices, lifting demand for new goods and services. Entrepreneurs set up new businesses to meet demand for these new necessities of life, creating new jobs. As Alan Greenspan, chairman of America's Federal Reserve......

...NEWSTART What is New Start? 2 Corinthians 5:17 says; "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new." Traditionally we have understood this verse to mean we become a new creature spiritually. This is certainly correct, but if the "old things are passed away," and "all things are become new," doesn't it stand to reason that every area of our lives should be affected by our relationship with Christ? 1 Corinthians 10:31 states: "Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God." In the minds of many Christians there is a separation made between the spiritual life and the other areas such as: business, finance, physical, and social. God's plan for our lives is that our relationship with Him and our religion will permeate each and every area of our life. God likens our relationship with Him to that of a father and a child. What kind of relationship would we have with our earthly father if we hid certain areas from him; would he be pleased? Likewise our heavenly Father wants to take part in all facets of our life. It's amazing that with all the universe in His keeping, our God is interested in what we are doing today. He wishes to take part in your life and even help with your problems. There is an interesting promise that is made in Deuteronomy 7:15, butfirst we need to understand an important principle in Scripture. In 1 Corinthians chapter ten, the apostle Paul gives......
