Pacific Express in Kava

Setting the basis for the new Federal Express office in Kava is a more challenging task than initially assumed.

Then, another issue is given by the necessity to train people, which is sadly expected to generate some shortages. The desire to train the indigenous population and introduce it to the concepts of organizational culture, as forwarded in the western parts of the globe, represents, in its essence, a…. [read more]

20th Century US Foreign Policy Research Proposal

… Truman in Hypothetical Crisis

As President Harry Truman faces the Russian missile crisis in Venezuela, the situation in the states is one of cautious alert. President Truman is known for his hard line position when it comes to the Russians (Brown, Seyom, 1994, p. 17). Truman believes in flexing his American Military muscle, and will stand up to the threat of Russian missiles in Venezuela. The Venezuelan's claim that they fear the United States has a goal of "regime change," for Venezuela. President Truman abandoned what was once a successful and mutually beneficial "good neighbor" policy between the United States and South American countries (Rabe, Stephen G., 1998, 1). This kind of approach to foreign affairs is not Truman's way. He is a president that…. [read more]

Voss 2001 Thesis

… ¶ … education, as an institution, moved toward a state of equilibrium?

The simple definition of institutions reveals that education has moved toward a state of equilibrium, and by this I mean that the definition of institution, and consequently the educational institution, has mutated along the years to include various and more complex features, such as the physical form of the institution, the rules and regulations that govern it or the generated outcomes. Their inclusion in a more comprehensive formulation suggests the achievement of equilibrium.

Then, the educational institutions tend to implement similar regulations, and the students, teachers and other players in the field have to obey these regulations. This then means that the expected outcome is similar to all students and teachers, meaning once…. [read more]

NATO and the European Union the Cold Term Paper

… NATO and the European Union

The Cold War period represented an important time in the history of the European continent and in the development of the concept of security and the way in which it was dealt with at the level of the national security strategies. The bipolar system that succumbed following the fall of the Iron Curtain had established up to that point a security structure based on the alliance system, NATO and the Warsaw Pact. However, when the Pact no longer represented an adversary for the Northern Alliance, the major problem for NATO as well as for the European Union became obvious in the lack of threat such a construction must face. At the same time, the challenges facing the new, emerging, international…. [read more]

Amazon.Com, and Projects Term Paper

… ¶ …, and projects whether or not the Amazon model will be as successful in the future. This paper then analyzes the case for the opposite type of e-commerce company, one based on very narrow or "walled" competitors.

Although Amazon's strategy today appears to be a winning strategy, this was not true for several years after Amazon's founding, a period during which it consumed massive amounts of capital. Now that Amazon is making significant profits and growing its top line, it is not clear that the Internet of five years ago will be the same as the Internet five years from now.

This paper will argue that Amazon's model must morph into a modern-day distribution business, similar to Sears Roebuck in the 1800's. It…. [read more]

U.S. Foreign Policy Authors Lafeber, Offner Term Paper

… U.S. Foreign Policy

Authors LaFeber, Offner, Gaddis present revisionist ideas about the outbreak of Cold War in their works which are not widely recognized in the U.S.A. And Europe. According to their opinion, based on historical documents they provide, and conclusions made after analyzing those sources, the U.S.A. And Great Britain were also responsible for the outbreak of Cold War, as their strategy of foreign policy was short-eyed and in many respects lacked responsibility for future. LaFeber makes a clear point that the period of Cold War was a period of "Hot War" for third world countries, countries where ambitions and interests of both superpowers met.

How Leadership Style and Characteristics Affect Business Success and Failure Term Paper

… ¶ … Leadership Style and Characteristics Affect Business Success and Failure

While the debate over nurture vs. nature continues, it is clear that some people appear to be "natural-born" leaders who are capable of motivating others to achieve far more than others. These leaders seem to possess the right combination of personality, vision and motivational skills and can use them to their maximum advantage in a wide variety of organizational settings. These leaders also have an enormously positive impact on an organization's bottom line, and it is not surprising that an increasing amount of research in recent years has been devoted to identifying what characteristics these leaders share and what they do that is so fundamentally different from ineffectual leaders. The purpose of this study…. [read more]

Inequalities Rampant Among the Dod Term Paper

… Recently, according to one article surveyed, the principal director for equal opportunity at the DOD was present at an African-American History Month celebration at Tougaloo College, a black college, in order to "inform African-American students and minorities of military civil service opportunities" (Sample, 2003). The article points out that at present the current representation of African-Americans as officers within all branches in the military is only 8%, while representation in general is at 20% (Sample, 2003). This has proven a somewhat effective method thus far, as any candidate wants to know that the people recruiting them are going out of there way to meet them on their turf and in their environment.

Catholic Church in Spain Term Paper

… On the flip side however, rising attitudes of liberalism, republicanism, socialism, anarchism, and intellectual pluralism ensured a direct and stiff challenge to the once accepted view of the clergy that Spain was always a catholic nation and would be one always.

What Hitler tried to achieve through the annihilation of a race we have achieved through simple acceptance. We assimilated and thus thrived.

Coming to the contemporary times we must once again reassemble our notions. So far in the past we have seen conflict and then resolution. Sociologists will tell us that this is a usual state of affairs. In a changing society conflict arises and then certain forces act to resolve that conflict. When we decided to abolish slavery the Southern States believed that their monetary advantages far outweighed the rights of the African-Americans. The Northern states…. [read more]
