… NLF Europa

By the end of June 1997, NFL Europa announced that it would cease all operations, effectively ending the NFL's hope of selling American Football to the world as a viable commodity. This essay will explore the cause of the failure of football in Europe. The NFL always markets itself as a saleable commodity. Unfortunately, there were no buyers in Europe. Of the many reasons for this NFL failure, some reasons stand out. There is already a sport that has captured the imagination worldwide and especially in Europe, soccer. These and other sports have already been well established in Europe and American football had significant difficulties taking root. American football is a sport that is played in isolation.

Morality and Culture Essay

… ¶ … culture and morality. In other words it deals with the question: Is morality relative to culture? Proponents of so called "cultural relativism," sometimes also called "moral relativism" or "ethical relativism" argue that different cultures obtain varying moral codes. "If there is no transcendent moral or ethical standard, then often culture arguably seems to become the ethical norm for determining whether an action is right or wrong" (see Anderson: 1). Culture and cultural dimensions are considered the collective horizon representing a specific social reality. American anthropologist and cultural relativist Ruth Benedict in Patterns of Culture (1934) said: "Morality differs in every society and is a convenient term for socially approved habits" (as cited by Kehl: 2).

Boundary of Art Andy Warhol Term Paper

… The Boundary of Art: Andy Warhol
In the middle part of the 20th century, Abstract Expressionism rules
the visual arts scene with a sense of serious experimentation that was in
its own way very constraining. The next generation of artists would appeal
to the media of popular culture as a way to simultaneously be liberated
from the prejudices of Expression and to broaden the palette of commercial
art. Turning concepts such as mass consumerism, the commoditization of
mankind and general materialism into a pointed philosophical statement, the
so-called 'Pop Art' movement would change significantly the both the visual
presentation and intended statement of the work dominating the scene in the
late 1950s and early 1960s. As our research shows, this would be a genuine
transition,…. [read more]

Harmonizing Personal and Professional Balance Term Paper

… Also the employers at the same time have recognized that given the current state of the labor market, with high unemployment, few shortages of labor and emergence of trade unions, they have to be strong and solid to handle the pressures to achieve a more flexible workforce.

Shareholders became increasingly impatient for their quick and profitable return on their investments. Now the focus of the organizations shifted towards ensuring the flexible delivery of goods and services onto the shoulders of their workforce.

The following will explore considerations in an archeological analysis of how a hunter-gatherer society might survive in such a climate.

Foreign Market Entry Strategies Thesis

… Foreign market entry strategies: GM

Foreign Market Entry Strategies

General Motor's foreign market entry strategies: China and Germany

General Motors (GM) is perhaps one of the most criticized companies in America today. Yet, for much of the company's history, it was said 'as GM goes, so goes the nation,' because GM was the biggest automotive company in the world and an American economic powerhouse. However, in the 1980s, GM began to lose its once-deft touch. It began to expand its brands too quickly and did not support its existing fleet of brands with effective marketing. It was also burdened with heavy administrative costs: "GM gave in to union demands in 1990 and created a program that paid workers even when plants were not running, forcing…. [read more]

Global organizational communication: Barriers and challenges

In the modern international marketplace environment, organizations are more complex, diffuse and diverse than ever.

"In today's global business environment, effective organizational communication -- internal and external -- has a significant impact on an organization's success" (Effective organizational communication: a competitive advantage, 2008, HR, p.1). It is also a critical factor in attracting top-level talent to the organization.

Role of the Military: Changing Views Research Paper

… This man, the son of a potter, through all the changes in his fortunes always led an infamous life. Nevertheless, he ac companied his infamies with so much ability of mind and body that, having devoted himself to the military profession, he rose through its ranks to be Praetor of Syracuse. (pp. 55-56)

Not satisfied with this lofty position, Agathocles went on to seek higher office by using violence to achieve his objectives, going so far as to use the military to assassinate the entire senate of Syracuse to assume power himself. As Machiavelli confirms:

Being established in that position, and having deliberately resolved to make himself prince and to seize by violence, without obligation to others, that which had been conceded to…. [read more]


Medicare and Medicaid Research Paper

The primary difference between the two programs is that Medicare is directly financed by the federal government while the federal funds for Medicaid are disbursed to the states, 'matching' the state money used to finance the program.

Medicare is offered to lawful residents of the U.S. age 65 or older who have lived in the U.S. more than five years. Some individuals with certain permanent disabilities and…. [read more]


Crime for Many Years, Sociologists Essay

… There are many theories that provide detailed evidence on crime in our society, yet the truths vary and a lot of indications are left unexamined or are unable to be explained. There are numerous presumptions rather than proven research on crime, and investigators will try an answer the doubts and gaps and figure out why misdeeds occur and how to appropriately handle the offenses people carry out. While Marx supported the conflict theory and how inequality in specific groups is required to have a normal functioning society, opposing professionals like Henry and Lanier disagreed that a society should be deemed as whole. Other criminologists and specialists like Currie felt other subsets of a society should be considered like the economy rather than individual groups or…. [read more]
