Politics and Ecological Sustainability Article

… Politics & Ecological Sustainability

The relationship between politics and ecological sustainability has involved an inverse power struggle between political leaders whom seek to enable corporate success and the ecologists whom fear the poisoning of the earth and other forms of ecological damage. Ostensibly, this relationship is facilitated and watched within the auspices of Greening Environmental Policy, (Litfin, 1996). According to Litfin (1996), "Greening Environmental Policy grapples with sustainability beyond narrow economist and technical parameters to which it is often confined, thus the term greening, which entails participatory politics as much as ecological sustainability." (Litfin, 1996)

Greening Environmental Policy describes the link between participatory political debates to that of ecological sustainability. Certainly, however, such policy is destined to be a misleading representation of the true effect…. [read more]


Values and Morals Capstone Project

… Moreover, the word "maslahah" means "benefit or interest," and this suggests that the public interest must be protected. Hence, believing in maslahah means doing what is in the best interest of the public. Taken at face value, this should be the rule of thumb when a person is going into the accounting field; if it is not in the best interest of the public, or of the client, or of the company, than it is unethical and should be avoided (Yunanda, 131).

A peer-reviewed article in Accounting Education: an international journal points out that an Ethics Education Toolkit is available courtesy of the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC). The Toolkit is designed to stimulate discussion and debate regarding ethics education, and this is necessary because…. [read more]


Bentham Jeremy Bentham Is an Interesting Character Term Paper

… Bentham

Jeremy Bentham is an interesting character in that he entered the legal profession after graduating from Oxford University in 1763 but was appalled by the level of corruption that he witnessed; consequently, he left his law firm in order to investigate and work to rectify the underlying social ills that could result in such a widespread miscarriage of integrity. Largely, his efforts in this regard are considered to be near to as much success as one man could hope for: two days after his death in 1832, British Parliament passed the Reform Bill, which wrested political power from the ruling nobility and afforded it to the general public. Largely, this bill came as a result of his continual activism.

Fundamentally, Bentham's approach to social…. [read more]


Corporate Strategy of Multinational Organizations Capstone

… Conventional strategy formulation is not inventive, unique, or imaginative, thus resulting in strategic rigidity. One fundamental issue when it comes to making strategies within complex environments is the achievement of edge-of-chaos "adaptive innovation" while simultaneously attaining dependable, steady strategy implementation. This is accomplished through "improvisation" – balancing between excessive chaos and structure (Seidl & Werle, 2018). Improvisation calls for substantial competitive moves and experimentation for destabilizing markets and pushing them to edge-of-chaos positions, with structure suf?cient for change to be effective (tasks, priorities, and deadlines), though not rigid enough to discourage change. One of the strategic structures for managing complex environments indicates that organizations need to create chaos using repetitive innovation.

Merely becoming the ?rst mover does not suffice (competitors can get "free rides"),…. [read more]

Teacher Certification Impact on Student Achievement Literature Review

… By raising requirements for teaching, the legislation would presumably end the employment of non-certified or under-qualified teachers in public schools.

Nonetheless, the legislation mainly emphasized subject matter knowledge and introduced constraints in teacher certification (Townsend, 2014). This was one of the major shortcomings of the legislation. By emphasizing subject matter knowledge, the NCLB gave little attention to pedagogy and curriculum. This resulted in a narrower view of teaching accountability in which teaching effectiveness was measured by the ability to pass tests as opposed to more meaningful aspects such as teacher characteristics. Schuster (2012) also criticizes NCLB’s attention to content knowledge, pre-service tests, and experience, contending that such measures are not necessarily useful indicators of teaching quality. Another shortcoming of the NCLB stemmed from the…. [read more]

Comparing Between the Two U.S. Intervention in Afghanistan and Pakistan After 2001 Term Paper

… ¶ … U.S. Interventions in Afghanistan and Pakistan

intervention in Afghanistan in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and its involvement in Pakistan since 2001, although of diametrically opposite nature, are intertwined in many ways. Its intervention in Afghanistan was essentially a revenge attack for the 9/11 terrorism in order to punish the Taliban for their support of al-Qaeda; it was purportedly also aimed at capturing or killing Osama bin Laden, who lived in Afghanistan at the time, and to destroy the Islamic militant training camps in the country. Its involvement in Pakistan was basically aimed at stopping its government and its intelligence agencies from supporting the Taliban forthwith, to extend full co-operation to the U.S. In its "War against Terror," and to disband….

During the past ten years a number of companies in American have really endeavored to obtain and maintain competitive advantages over their competitors.

Event managers all over the world fear that they may end up loosing their jobs. Research shows that nearly 25% managers loose their jobs when companies streamline their business processes and rely more on teamwork to do the job. Versteeg (1990) outlined two typical aspects of managerial jobs that lure managers into looking away from adopting business structures which depend on high performing teams from different cultural and social backgrounds: they are accustomed to be in control; and they are inclined to having perks and privileges. Some of the most common perks and privileges include: reserved parking; executive bathrooms; and time cards.

These along with other perks that…. [read more]


Lawyer's Philosophy of Lawyering Research Proposal

… Immigration Lawyer Interview Assessment

Every person who comes before a court in the United States has a Constitutional right to representation. That is not a right reserved for citizens alone, but is a right that is extended to everyone, because it is justice that serves as the premise for the social structure in America. This is a right that our forefathers were emphatic about, because they had been falsely accused, held, and tried without representation. When America won her freedom from Great Britain, the forefathers wanted to be sure that everyone who came before the justice system in our country had the benefit of a trained legal mind to represent them. Unfortunately, this does not assure that the legal mind is an ethical one, or…. [read more]

… Enron was the seventh-largest corporation in the world. Enron Company was divided into five distinct parts including; Wholesale Services, Transportation and Distribution, Broadband Services, Retail Energy Services, and Corporate and Other.
