The several challenges faced over the years have also helped to propel the company into new heights. These include fierce competition from other consulting firms, the credit crunch which saw the company barely survive and the restructuring we had to do to increase efficiency and serve our clients better. The International Market After long consultations with the directors and other stakeholders, it was agreed that the company should move to another level and expand into the international market. This will be a great privilege to the company. After the marketing team completed its analysis on the first location outside the UK that the company should base its services on, we decided to take the business to Paris, France due to a number of reasons that will be outlined later. With the expansion to Paris, the company will also introduce a new product in the market. This is an area that the company has researched on and found high demand for, especially in Paris. The new product involves training programmes for International marketing. The most obvious reason as to the choice of this product is due to the fact that Paris, being a renowned historical city in the world, attracts several local and international tourists every year. The training programmes in International marketing will thus be very useful to the market. <strong>Research Paper - Biblical Philosophy of Education | Subjects: Education - College</strong>Annotated Bibliography - Grades inflation in the US | Subjects: English - Undergraduate

It is vitally important to underscore the fact that there is no known cure for the disease nor has there ever been a proven case in which the body’s natural defense mechanism has been able to cure the disease on its own. As such, it is the very definition of a chronic disease that almost always is the primary cause of death for the patient who has acquired it. However, this notwithstanding, there exist various treatments that are able to slow the disease and improve the prognosis and general life expectancy that an individual who has the disease might expect to have. As a function of such an understanding, the best types of treatments that are currently available to the individual suffering from MS are concentric upon pharmacological means as well as therapy. The pharmacological means are usually based upon trying to integrate a degree of neuro-rehabilitation within the patient and seek to reduce the rate at which symptoms and their destructive side effects can cause. Research objectives describe what is aimed to be accomplished by the research. Principle objective of this research is to identify the effects of recession on the global automobile industry. The research will be conducted with the objective of finding out the significant changes that have taken place in the automobile industry due to global financial turmoil. Since the financial meltdown started from the mid of 2008, the research will be carried out to find out those changes that have taken place from the year 2008 till February, 2010. Changes can only be understood when previous statistics will be compared with the present statistics. As a result it is very important to find out the situation of the industry prior to the period when there was no recession and the situation that has emerged after the recession. Finding out these situations is a major objective of the research.Recession is one of the most talked about topics in the global economic scenario over the last two years. It has affected almost all the industries in all the countries starting from developed to developing. Automobile industry is one of those industries that are badly affected by the global financial turmoil. However before getting into further details regarding the effects of recession on the industry, it is crucial to have a clear idea regarding recession, its causes and effects. This research will include a well structured literature review where all the theoretical aspects of recession will be clearly explained. The literature review will also contain the theories that are related to marketing and strategic management. Moreover the literature review includes all the theories that are related to the research methodologies and that are relevant to this particular research.Research methodology is referred to the method in which the research would be conducted. It includes research

Essay - Significance of Effective Writing | Subjects: English - Ph.D. In the 2011/2012 report, 70.625 % of the respondent felt satisfied with the criminal justice system as compared with 65.3% in the year 2008/2009 survey. Introduction Public confidence and perception of criminal justice system are fundamental in the administration of justice in any country. The system relies on the participation of witnesses and victims for successful operation. Bad perception of criminal justice system by both victims and witnesses leads to low involvement with the process of delivering justice to people (American Bar Association, 2007). It also results into disrespect of court pronouncement and rulings a threat to stability. The dissatisfaction is central to many studies conducted on the criminal justice system. In Northern Island the monitoring of bridging the gap in criminal justice strategy began in 2007 with Witness and Victim Survey. By using the findings of these annual surveys, this country aimed at improving their criminal justice system to meet the needs of its citizens. Today, countries such as United States of America, United Kingdom and Australia conduct similar studies on regular basis.

New technologies push the boundaries of ethical discussions on ownership of creative work First Amendment The media’s right to free expression is protected, with the amendment prohibiting the enactment of laws that abridge or curtail press freedom and free speech What are the bounds of press freedom? Can private individuals slighted wrongly by the press and by individuals seek redress under the law? This relates to libel as a legal recourse. Prior restraint prohibition An extension of the First Amendment, prohibiting government from prohibiting speech prior to the utterance of the speech. The effect is the broadening of the power of mass media, and the press in particular Ethical issues are again tied to limits of free speech as they pertain to the rights of private individuals Abridgements to First Amendment Rights Non-interference of government on free speech rights is not absolute, but may be justified by public safety considerations. The effect on media is the setting of bounds on free expression, in cases where the public safety or the national safety are compromised There is the ethical issue of where the bounds of government power and the public and media lie. Assignment - Informational Memo | Subjects: Other - Undergraduate The populations with limited access on the healthcare system encounter difficulty in using the system leading to delay in cancer diagnosis, added costs, less efficient, and effective use of recommended therapies. The patient navigation programs provide support and guidance to people with the goal of improving access to the cancer care system and overcome barriers to quality care. This paper will present a conceptual model to evaluate cost-effectiveness of cancer patient navigation-programs, discuss challenges, and the best approach to address the challenges.Evaluating the economic impact of patient navigation has a wide array of activities that involves different settings while it suffers from inadequate of information. Different cost elements differ in the study perspective. Different researchers present interventions to determine the relevant cost measures that assess the economic value of patient navigation.The history of the patient navigation programs attributes to Harold Freeman the chair of American Cancer Society that commissioned the study of barrier to cancer among the poor in America. The success of the pioneer program and recognition of significant barriers to cancer diagnosis continue to exist among the minority and the underserved populations. Currently, many patient navigation programs work to reduce barriers to care at all levels. The growing popularity and publication of promising observational studies fail to evaluate the efficacy of navigator programs. Researchers are yet to establish the cost-effectiveness and the impact of navigation programs on cancer-related morbidity and survival.The patient navigator programs can be time and resource intensive. Similar to other interventions may improve the health of poor and underserved populations. One should view the navigation programs in the context of allocating resources to maximize health outcomes on limited budgets. It is important to

Cameron emphasized the British and Canadian relationship in many parts of his address. He reminded the Canadians about their affinity to the monarchy - to the Queen and to the royal family. The Canadians are still ceremonially led by the British monarch and the citizens are favorable to such system, having high regard for the members of the Royal family. He highlighted the close relationship of the two countries, serving as a platform to introduce the successes that they achieved when they worked together in the past. Canada has always supported Britain in its military efforts and Cameron was quick to capitalize on the successes of this partnership. He referred to the two World Wars and appealed to the emotion of his audience by declaring the indebtedness of his country to the courage and commitment of Canada: In our darkest hour in World War II, Canadian naval forces helped keep the sea lanes open during the battle of the Atlantic running convoys across the Atlantic week after week, braving mines, submarines and blacked out silent ships.

Assignment - Reflection/Participation Paper | Subjects: Sociology - High school This story brings to life an orderly lifestyle that ran within the society members. All people had a role to play including the children. Young boys collected stones and guarded them in a corner. The society recognized demarcations in terms of households and families. Leadership gained recognition at all levels. The man became recognized as the head of the family while the woman comes third if there is a boy in the family who has reached sixteen years. During picking of the paper slips, a sense of harmony ensured. This is an expression of sound governance. At the same time, only one paper per person could be taken. This is a show of a social order keen on giving everyone an equal chance at the decision making level. There is a form of representation in the society with a woman taking the place of a man in extreme cases (Jackson 24). The use of papers instead of wood chips is an indication of the degradation of the traditional values that used to hold the society together. It also indicates civilization. The presence of a post office and a bank in the village reinforces the aspect of civilization. The people, therefore, regardless of the enlightening refuse to shed the negative traditions deliberately. The society is gullible. The people inflict pain on innocent persons who certainly do not deserve it. This amounts to being in human.

According to Pratt, psychology describes mental processes by putting observations into communicable terms, “generalizing them into empirical laws, and explaining the particular by the general.” (Pratt 2005, p29) This variable enables psychology to be easily recognized as scientific because, as Pratt, emphasized, it covers a systematic description of verifiable facts of human experience. Here, the recognition was based on a looser meaning of science because once one followed a strict definition- it could only leave the field of mathematics as the only true scientific field. The natural sciences would certainly be disqualified because of they are limited in the degree by which they can provide perfect and exact predictions. Psychology must take into account the humanistic principle that, according to O’Boyle, emphasizes the intuitive and emotional aspects of human experience besides the rational. (O’Boyle 2006, p162) But what makes it scientific and distinct from the philosophical approach is its use of scientific methods. As a science, psychology is bound to deal with facts about human behavior and that its main objective is to provide a scientific explanation regarding the reasons and motivations behind an individual’s behavior in a particular environmental context.

The article thus focuses on the bizarre scenario operating within the industries demanding the unpaid labor of considerable amount over a considerable span of time. And the predicament of the unpaid personnel in these sectors also finds enough expression in the essay where it has been quintessentially mentioned that the time, when the unpaid labor reaches the point of getting paid adequately for his or her expertise, there are already huge professional as juniors in the industry who have received the status of unpaid intern. Summary The potent issue focused within the article hinges on the fact that unpaid internship might be quite beneficial for the individuals who are young. It also highlights that these young individuals possess the ability of becoming a very good and attractive entrepreneur as they are able to procure skilled and free labor. But this system is very bad and sluggish for the entire society as a comprehensive unit. As often argued by theorists, the trend of unpaid internship is screwing the job market (Matthews, 2013- Paton, 2013).

Panic is one outcome of a stressful situation that numbs down any feasible accurate responses and overcoming it can be a challenge in itself. I was to catch a local flight from Bali to Jakarta and then fly back home through an international one. I arrived at the airport on time and since there was time left for the boarding side to open, I ended up reading a book on a nearby bench. Time went by and I was so consumed in the book that the boarding opened and I could not check in on time. I kept looking at the desk side but since there was no sign put up, I missed my chance to get the boarding pass. When I noticed that an awful lot of time had passed by and I checked with the main counter, I was told that the flights boarding was now closed and I had n option but to wait for the next flight available.I panicked and my heart beat went up. My stomach started to churn in an uncomfortable manner and I had no idea what to do. Even in an air conditioned airport, I felt like I was sweating and my palms were wet. My breathing was high and being clueless, I felt miserable. I gathered enough courage to have some water and calm my nerves. After settling down, I went to the help center to ask for the list of flights but unfortunately there were none available since it was a weekend and the flights were full. My immediate response was to inform my family back home and then to prepare myself for the delay.I managed to email my father about what had happened and then I kept checking the help desk to see if any flights had seats available. I managed to catch a flight to Jakarta but the situation that was created at that time was an unforgettable one. The stress that I faced during that time when the lady at the help desk informed me that there were no available seats for the next two days was unexplainable.

Essay - Intro to Criminal Justice Module 5 online | Subjects: Law - Masters Due to our expertise in water and sanitation as a researcher, we were called by the organization to study the loop holes of the organization and also to carry out the assessment of the ongoing running project by the NGO. The NGO was running the project of installing hand pumps for the Afghan refugees which is the largest Afghan refugee’s camp in Pakistan, located in Haripur. Due to this team work and collaboration, it was quiet easy to sort out the locations from where the water sample was to be taken because the NGO already knew the sites, so we just needed to travel along with them and take out the water sample from different areas and bring them back to our university. Before going for field work, we had a group discussion with the community mobilizer of the NGO, he told us about the situation and conditions of the project and about the success of the project. The NGO was recently working on phase 2 of the project, and in phase 1 it provided the hand pumps and the flush toilets to the community. Recently in the phase 2 they were covering two union councils of the Haripur in which 18 hand pumps was the target. First twenty years, this NGO served afghan refugee community (which is the highest community of Afghans in Pakistan located in Haripur).

How the menu looks, reflects as to what is company’s mission and objective. So the menu should be designed in such a manner that it is in accordance to theme and values of the company. Core objective and image of the company should be in line with market dynamics.Factors which can affect customers can vary from market to market. These can be how readable content on menu card is, overall physical scheme, outline, and font styles. As for other factors in communication it is the presentation that is more important rather than what content has been presented in menu card (Glanz, et.al. 2007). Example of this can be fast food restaurants where they have limited items presented in menu. However they sell in bulk quantities. Concept of common counters is present in fast food chains. Hence separate menus aren’t required for each customer. Class of customer coming to fast food chains don’t require descriptions of each product as they are familiar with products being offered. If description is present in the menu it would only serve to slow down decision making process. In these common menus on common sales points, only product name, price and other add ups are being shown along with enlarged picture of product being sold. For avoiding reputational risk, fast food chains need to keep the original product as being shown on sales point. This overall strategy which has been implemented across fast food chains leads to quick service and limited products available at same price at all units of fast food chain (Born, & Purcell, 2006).Alternatively, when we move towards restaurants which present sophisticated theme, class and group of customers being catered change and with it overall theme of menu changes. Number of food items being presented on menu also increases (Ayala, et.al. 2005). Catering to upper class, table service restaurants need to have

Every organization carrying out any income generating activity has the obligation to pay taxes depending the existing rates and the amount of income (Christensen 1). For the company to maintain good political relations with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), it must pay tax promptly as applicable and fill tax return.Second, the company faces the task to adhere to the rules governing the intellectual property laws. Business ideas, logos, names or inventions need protection by the above law. Therefore, any emerging business such as the Opera House must adhere to such rules to avoid future squabbles with anyone who may intend to steal their business ideas. Applying for a patent through the US patents and trademark office may be a bold step to take towards registration of the opera services (Kendall 441). Opera being a movie production business issue like copyrights records have to be set straight.Third, the company will have to check with Environmental Protection Agency on which environmental rules and regulations apply to their and comply with them. Opera being an operator in the entertainment industry means some noise pollution regulations may apply to it (Tajtakova 365). There are also state environmental laws to meet with for example state of New Jersey has its particular environmental lawsFinally, the workplace safety and health law is also a significant regulation the company will have to comply. Workers’ safety and health are critical. Therefore, the company have to comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). The company must identify the possible hazards to the employees and takes measures to minimize such

Despite his condescending attitude towards the slaves, he still held firm to his belief that all men are born as free people. Jefferson also declared in a case that all people enter the world with their right to their personal liberty. Jefferson was very much against the actions of Britain which waged war against human nature, as it went against life and the liberty of people. This was a practice which was also against the teachings of Christianity, and the British Empire was advocating teachings which kept the market of men alive. For which reason, Jefferson came up with the saying with the full determination that all men are born as equals. At present this saying means that all men must have the right to determine his future, and that no one must impede and interfere with this right. These equal rights also mean equal opportunities and responsibilities which must, in the end, be respected by society and by government authorities.

Because of this concern the marketing department in the multinational company has been asked to oversee a survey among the stakeholders in the most affected areas which include the US and the beyond from which a market risk assessment can be made and thereafter decisions made to overcome the challenge. Following this a market survey was enlisted for three countries in which twenty stakeholders (consumers and employees) in each resident company in those countries would be involved from whose responses a qualitative analysis will be done. In this paper we consider the preliminary activities of the survey in which we consider the research questions to be addressed in the survey, the survey hypothesis, the design and the rationale of the survey and the procedures involved in conducting the survey. We shall also consider any tests to be conducted and modifications of the results as may be required, the analysis techniques to be employed and then the expected milestones.Marketing the McDonalds meat product is an important bit of the company because of what the product has to the company. Following several campaigns in the market posting fast foods served at the restaurants as unfit for consumption and other campaigns posting McDonalds Company as working behind a mask, there has developed negative attitude from the customers who are sourced globally (Evenson, 2010). In one of the campaigns it was posted that the company has failed to offer safe meat. The pro-vegetarianism have insisted on the informing the public about the unfitness of meat and meat product consumption. On the other hand the global move towards green meat is impacting on the meat products in the company especially in the times when the world is experiencing cases of zoonotic diseases like flu and mad cow diseases. Given the circumstances the company may not be able to effectively

It is crucial for law and ethics to unite, but unfortunately at times it is not the case. Sometimes an individual must consider doing an unlawful act to do something that is ethical, it sounds complicated, but it happens in reality especially in handling business transactions (Beatty and Samuelson 16). The day to day dilemmas in business led to the formulation of business laws that seek to promote the value of law and ethics in the globally progressing business environment.In spite of the existence of business laws there are still some professionals who opt to perform their duties through unethical means. Perhaps this wrongful act has contributed to the growing disbelief of people towards the information that is being shown in financial statements. The violation could either be intentional, that is when the accountant voluntarily made the violation or unintentional, if there is no willingness to do the wrongful act (e.g., when the employer threatens an employee to do something unethical for the sake of the company). Accounting regulations were established to govern professional accountants into practicing ethical behavior.The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is the government agency tasked to promulgate regulations that are set to be followed by organizations particularly the accountants who are most of the time susceptible to trouble. The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 made possible the creation of SEC to formulate and impose securities law. In 2002 former U.S. President George W. Bush passed the Sarbanes-Oxley Act or the Public Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act. The law was established to ensure the credibility of financial statements. Due to the increasing number of fraud related issues in companies, the government finally realized the need to reform the laws that govern organizations and protect the right of investors (Peck 11).There have been recent For example, a hotel that is accountable for 50 kg of carbon dioxide for every room night sold could buy enough of these credits to offset each room night, thereby making the hotel carbon neutral. The other option could be inducing their guests to buy enough credits to offset their length of stay, thereby making the guest carbon neutral instead. This process is referred to as carbon trading, that is, the process of putting a value on each credit, based on the current market supply and demand. For example, under cap-and-trade regulations, certain industries are required to cap their allowed greenhouse gas emissions at a particular amount, often incorporating a reduction in this allowance over time. Where such industries are not able to reduce their direct emissions to comply with these regulations, they typically go to the trading market to buy carbon credits to make up for the difference (Pizam, 2010). Electricity utilities are frequently among the earliest targets of cap-and-trade regulations and usually pass along any increased cost to their customers, including the energy-intensive hospitality industry.Ecotourism has numerous direct benefits to biodiversity maintenance by creating incentives at the local level for forests reserves, marine and coastal reserves, land concessions and myriad forms of wildlife habitat conservation. Ecotourism also contributes to conservation-enhancing behavior changes among local inhabitants in cases where people are integrated into decision-making (Durham & Stronza, 2008, pg. 265). On top of these direct benefits, there are also indirect contributions in the form of millions of dollars directed to conservation projects from entrance fees, tourist philanthropic donations and ecotourism-operator philanthropy.However if ecotourism wishes to claim environmental bragging rights, it has to do better with regards to carbon usage and climate change. Like most contemporary forms of travel,

The company in the 1990’s started diversifying its range of cars and opened up manufacturing industries in many parts of the world. This boosted their sales in the countries where they were manufacturing the cars. Toyota by 2010 was still the motor company to beat in terms of sales- it had sold over 8,557,351 units which represents an 11.0% market share.In order to measure if a company is profitable it must be compared with its competitor, Toyota sales from only automotive operations as for the fiscal year of April through September the first six months amounted to approximately 8,863.6 billion yen, this translates to $104 billion dollars at an exchange rate of 85 yen to the dollar. Looking at General motors, the revenues during the two quarters is approximately $67.2 billion. Thus, Toyota auto operations averaged about 12% of all sales done in the motor industry in the fiscal year of 2009 to 2010. Toyota auto operations are over 50% larger than all GM sales.When Toyota and General Motors are compared to the motor industry, they rank way higher than other companies in the industry, this is in terms of the market share and the profitability, the companies have a history of their profits running to billions of dollars and their assets size running into hundreds of billions. They are two of the largest motor companies in the world and they are in frequent competition. The closest company that comes close to the two is the German company Volkswagen, however, it grosses lesser than the two mega companies. The following is a comparison of the industry.

An individual who believes in his/her abilities performs well in such a setting whereas lack of confidence declines performance. An individual’s awareness of the fact that he/she is being observed by other people in the surrounding greatly impacts his/her performance in the task he/she is doing at a certain point in time. The awareness may improve or decline the performance depending upon the perceived complexity of the task. In a vast majority of cases, when the task at hand is perceived to be easy by an individual who is aware that that he/she is being observed by other people in the surrounding, the individual’s performance in the task increases. This is known as social facilitation. On the other hand, when an individual finds a particular task at hand difficult, his/her performance in it is quite likely to be lowered because of the awareness that he/she is being observed by other people in the surrounding. This process is known as social inhibition. There are several factors that influence human behavior when it is being observed. In such circumstances, the breath rate increases, there is increased perspiration, muscles are tensed and the heart rate also increases. All sorts of positive and negative emotions are intensified in a group or crowd. Three of the main factors that influence the human behavior in a crowd are evaluation apprehension, distraction and self-consciousness.

The first argument implies freedom of action, because those actions which do not harm others, should not be banned by the government. Use of marijuana as a means of relaxing is purely a personal choice, therefore, the prohibition of marijuana possession and control of the government should be abolished. Any democratic state can not legally prohibit the citizen to use these or other substances to manage their own health one way or another, so marijuana should be legalized. Everyone has the right to decide for himself whether he will use marijuana or not.The second argument implies misallocation of resources. Strengthening laws against marijuana is usually ineffective. Now the market for illicit substances is under complete and undivided control of organized crime, trafficking in extracting excess profits from illicit substances. Politics of prohibitionism not only revealed their inability to curb the process of drug use and reducing related victims, but on the contrary, contributed to enhancing the drug market. The fight against drug trafficking implies inefficient spending of billions of dollars. During the struggle the huge sums spent on paying the police, lawyers, courts, prisons, but the rate of use of the whole is not reduced, on the contrary, is growing steadily. I believe that the legalization of marijuana is the only one reasonable approach, the only approach that will bring the cannabis from illegal mafia economy sphere, completely indifferent to the health of their customers. Only in this way may lead radical fighting drug trafficking, taking into account respect for civil liberties. Also I should mention that social tolerance has increased considerably over the last decade.The third argument is that marijuana has useful medicinal properties. Studies show that marijuana is less dangerous than tobacco, legalized drugs, and has a number of medicinal properties (for the treatment Research Paper - INFLUENCE OF MUSIC/MUSICIANS ON YOUNG ADULTS IN ALCOHOL AND DRUG CONSUMPTION | Subjects: English - Undergraduate

The definition that is adopted by the World Tourism Organization, however, describes sustainable tourism as “tourism which leads to management of all resources in such a way that economic, social and aesthetic needs can be fulfilled while maintaining cultural integrity, essential ecological processes, biological diversity and life support systems.” By this token, the industry is referred to in a host of other ways: e.g., eco-tourism, green travel, environmentally and culturally responsible tourism, fair trade and ethical travel (Shay, McHarry, & Gardiner, 2002, p. 1).There are some who disagree with such sweeping definitions, however, because they convey a simplified meaning to what is actually a complex and challenging area of endeavour, while conversely, highly detailed definitions tends to reduce the impression of sustainable tourism to a few limited elements. One comment is that the definition arrived at in the academe comes across as too scientific and technocratic, so as to alienate practitioners (Swarbrooke, 1999).The diagram depicts the interrelatedness of the different terms, none of which fully comprehends the complete meaning of sustainable tourism. Therefore, while ecotourism is often used synonymously with the term, it focuses on the ecology and neglects the cultural, economic, and aesthetic aspects. Ecotourism per se, taken in its strictest sense, accounts only for a small portion of the tourism market – estimated at roughly 3-7%, according to the World Trade and Tourism Council (WTTC) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) (Shay, et al., 2002).Tourism has grown to be a major industry that accounts for a significant portion of the revenues generated by the economy of many countries. That it has other, less tangible but equally beneficial impacts is apparent for both the destination community and the visiting tourists, in the form of heightened mutual understanding and appreciation of each

After the explanation of the theoretical concepts, we were told about certain real life scenarios that occur in organizations and about the flow of communication in the organizations. We were told that the hierarchical structures of organizations impair the free flow of communication in organizations and they cause delay in the delivery of information.

Iliad and the Odyssey were attributed by the ancient world – two epics regarded as the earliest and greatest arts of Greek literature to Homer. It is believed that Homer was the first poet who decided to record these myths into written usage- this is estimated to be during the eighth century B.C, hence conserving them for generations of the future.Most people and generations after the famous Homer have not relaxed looking at these tales since they address common issues concerning humanity. These stories were told in order to explain the human behavior, problems that are commonly pressing most communities and the surrounding world. Besides elaborating religious and natural origins, these myths also served humans with their neighbors and people history. In the case of Greeks, the myths poured much light on their lives aspects and the way they had turned to be what they used to be.It is anticipated that Greek mythology evolved nearly to 1000 years even before the Roman mythology came to existence- Greek mythology origin are still not known . The difference is: Roman mythology was as result of Rome inhabitants who created it as a religion and later on it was even adopted from the Greek mythology.The Roman and Greek mythology are similar in a way- Greek mythology focuses much on unexplainable great tales and the Roman mythology entails a lot of stories and battles between immortals in early centuries. Due to this fact, it is clearly evident that Roman and Greek mythologies are closely related due to their rich immortal tales.In as much Greek and Roman mythology are elaborate and descriptive, the two mythologies have differences. Greek mythology pours much light on great stories concerning mortals who took part in heroic deeds and

Being a non-contact technology, the NFC is highly advantageous as it does not require establishment of physical electrical contact. As such, in applications such as those requiring the use of cards, there is no need of inserting cards that use NFC into the reader, thus avoiding any problems that may be associated with poor contact.It is important to note that NFC uses inductive-coupling at a license free frequency allocation in the radio spectrum HF portion(Ahson & Ilyas, 2012, p. 33). NFC has a set of standards that govern it thus allowing for connectivity between NFC devices from different manufacturers. Besides creating the contactless environment for NFC interactions, the standards also determine the data transfer rates and the data formats. An NFC connection is simply achieved by bringing two electronic devices together within a close range to allow them to communicate. This eradicates the problem with identification and minimizes the issue with security, allowing for easier exchange of information.The NFC can be used for a variety of applications including in: mobile phones to transfer files from one handset to another- personal computers to link up networks for data transmission- point-of sale machines- turnstiles- parking meters- vending machines- and in other applications in the house or office, such as opening and closing of the garage doors(Finkenzeller, 2010, p. 80). The NFC connections could also be applied in the configuration of the connection between two devices that have wireless connections. Bringing the devices together allows for the initiation of the NFC connection which in turn initiates the set-up procedure. Other long-range wireless devices including the Bluetooth could be configured through communication with the NFC interface(Coskun, et al., 2011).NFC are vulnerable to man-in-the-middle (MITM) attackswhich involve attackers succeeding in interception of the communication

The opposite group was allowed to ask questions and present its own views regarding the idea presented by the other group. I was also a part of one of the groups. Observation Initially the teacher explained the theoretical concepts of the topic to us. We were told about the factor that add to the effectiveness of inter-personal communication which included- completeness, conciseness, concreteness and clarity. Afterwards, we were told about the factors that could cause hindrance in the process of communication. The hindrances included physical noise present in the surroundings of the place where communication takes place, psychological noise that keeps a person from processing the information being communication due to a distraction or emotional situation and the difference between the social and academic background of the individuals communicating. After the explanation of the theoretical concepts, we were told about certain real life scenarios that occur in organizations and about the flow of communication in the organizations. We were told that the hierarchical structures of organizations impair the free flow of communication in organizations and they cause delay in the delivery of information.
