Zinn: Chapter 5
In this Zinn reading, the topic covered the American Revolution and some of the injustices within it. At the time, America was attempting to emancipate from Britain but within the country they were not unified. More so we venture into the social and cultural aspect of the American military and their system. Happening at the same time you had much of America’s rich come up with new laws through the Continental Congress. Due to all this injustice you had rebellions and acts against the government because of the constitution at the time served for the economically dominant class.

On thins that caught my attention was how unstable and spread out the American army was at the time. Within a time of going to war against your father country one would expect some kind of unity and togetherness in a fight for a single purpose. If one, were to put it in IGE terms, there would be some kind of expectation of bridging and connection within society; as they had one common goal in fighting of Britain. At the time minority groups like the Native Americans and Negros were not allowed to bear arms and join the military. The fact that the military did allow the poor to work there rank up in the military was something of surprise. Being that America at the time had a high perception people’s wealth. Although in this course of America, blacks were not free, there had to some kind of way they could have and should have implemented into the cause of the American Revolution. Now looking at how the society as a whole was run, Zinn realized that much of the Constitution and Bill of Rights favored that of the American economic interest. When actually examining the Constitution, Zinn realized that many clauses within it helped keep an imbalance in the privelages in America by creating false language within our…...

...Brett Simons Chapter 5: Cross-cultural Negotiation & Decision Making Negotiation The chapter starts with defining negotiation as the process of discussion by which two or more parties aim for mutually acceptable agreement. It also states that the art of negotiation is widely considered the most important skill in International Business. I find that very interesting and kind of a surprise to me, but when you think about it, all business interactions are based on some type of negotiations (even meaningless stuff like meeting times). Because of this, negotiations also affect the ability for a manager to implement strategy. Finally, just like the running theme of this book, ignorance and poor research of native bargaining rituals, can cause unimpressive result. The Negotiation Process The process in which proper negotiation occurs is broken down into five stages. The first stage is preparation. This, to me, is the most important stage of the process. Before you can move on to any other stage effectively, you have to have done your homework as a manager. The second stage is building a relationship. You need to get to know your counterpart and their positions. It helps you stay ahead of their responses so you can react to them more effectively. The third stage is the exchange of task related information. This can include presentations and such but can be tricky when dealing with different cultures. As the book points out, researching how different cultures...

Gabinete formed a partnership and created the company Cats and Rocks, the company that will be producing and supplying Lay-Backpack. A partnership is commonly formed where two or more people wish to come to together to form a business it provides moral support and will allow for more creative brainstorming. The owners chose this type of ownership because with more than one owner, the ability to raise funds may be increased, both because two or more partners are able to contribute more funds. In a partnership the company can benefit from the combination of complementary skills of the owners and could be cost-efficient as each partner can specialize in a certain aspect of the business. 5.2 Capitalization The amount to be generated for the beginning capital of the business each of the proponents from Cats and Rocks will invest twenty thousand pesos (Php 20,000.00) for a total of forty thousand pesos (Php 40,000.00).

...WORLD MUSIC CHAPTER 5 1. Why does the Indian classical tradition dominate the musical image of South Asia in the west? The classical music of India has gained most of the attention of outsiders probably due to the colonization era that has brought Indo-European invaders (Aryan Civilization) into their territory between 2000 and 1500 BCE due to the presence of rich resources. However, Indian music, unlike the communal music of Africa and Southeast Asia, is individual and often virtuosic and can be both vocal and instrumental. The Hindustani one (North) is more appealing to the Western society as it is more instrumental based, whereas the Carnatic (south) one is more vocally oriented. Another factor that attracts the Western attention to Indian Classical Music is the presence of virtuosic improvisation. 2. Discuss the following terms important to a Hindustani classical musical performance Raga, Alap, Gat, Tala, Rasa? Raga: long Hindustani instrumental improvisations. Several things stand out to the first-time listeners: twangy buzz of introductory instruments, constant ornamentation and pitch bending of main melodic part, and tension changes. The word raga (color, atmosphere) denotes a comprehensive system for the simultaneous composition and performance struggle. Alap: the opening section of a raga performance in which the performer “explores” the raga. It can last for a mere minute or so or even be extended for an hour or more. Gat: the skeletal melody used as...

He lost his past and future earnings, so the court allowed Madera to receive these benefits. He was seriously injured, which caused him to get compensation. 2. There are many things that contribute to the declining number of deaths in the construction industry. There are more and more workplace laws that come into effect every year. These laws come with very harsh punishments for companies, which in turn gives them greater incentive to keep their workers as safe as possible. The companies issue training to employees, have monthly safety meetings, and provide the proper safety gear for their employees due to the job they are doing. 3. When construction happens in urban areas there should be stricter rules and regulations. I find it very unethical that these companies are taking short cuts that end up costing people their lives. The company that is cutting corners is not a company that is good for its employees. Especially when these incidents lead to the deaths of their employees. Page 190 1. I feel like global slavery has a good impact on the health of ordinary workers. We see how these people that are enslaved are treated, the things they have to go through, and the abuse that comes to them. This opens the eyes of our people and which in turn makes people value their workers more. Laws for workplace...

...CHAPTER 5: ACTIVITY-BASED COSTING AND MANAGEMENT QUESTIONS 5-1 Product costs are likely distorted when a firm uses a volume-based rate if the plant has more than one activity in its operations and not all activities consume overhead in the same proportion. The more diverse the product mixes of the plant are in volume, sizes, manufacturing processes, or product complexities, the greater the cost distortions are likely to be in using a volume-based rate. Undercosting a product may appear to have increased the reported profit the product earned (assuming the firm did not lower its selling price because of the reported lower product cost). However, the increased profit is, at best, a twist in truth. Costs of the product not charged to the product itself are borne by other products of the firm. Worse, undercosting a product may result in managers erroneously believing the product to be more profitable than other products and shifting the limited resource the firm has into manufacturing, promotion, and sales of the product when, in fact, other products are more profitable to the firm. Severe cost distortions may lead firms not to drop unprofitable products because the cost data show these products are profitable. 5-3 Overcosting does not increase revenues. A firm can increase the selling price of a product, thereby increasing the total revenue from the product only if the market allows. Increases in the selling price of a product without experiencing noticeable decrease in the...

...FOUNDATIONS OF TAOIST PRACTICE by Jampa Mackenzie Stewart When you try to define Taoism, you immediately run into trouble. The great Taoist philosopher and author of the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu, begins his first chapter with the warning words, The Tao that can be described is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name. Thus Westerners are not the only ones who have a hard time defining Taoism; the Chinese have had difficulty time agreeing on just what Taoism is for millenia. Taoism is sometimes defined as a ritualistic religion, as a philosophy, as Chinese folk religion, as alchemy, as a system of magical lore, or as a series of health practices similar to yoga. The adherants of each school often look with disdain on the others as being heterodoxy, heresy, or simply incomplete portions of the great Tao. The Chinese word Tao (pronounced "dow") means "the way, the path." In the common sense it refers to the way of doing anything, or the pathway to some destination. In its higher meaning, Tao refers to the way of the universe, the way things are. As a spiritual system, Tao means the way to achieving a true understanding of the nature of mind and reality, to the way of living in harmony with the changes of Nature. Thus the Tao is the goal, the path and the journey all in one. A Taoist then, is "a follower of the Way," the same title by which the early Buddhists and Christians dubbed themselves. The earliest Taoists appeared at least four thousand...
