Turkey The Republic of Turkey is a country filled with rich culture and amazing history. This paper will discuss the origins of Turkey and the most significant points in that region’s history. Then, it will focus on two types of games that the inhabitants of Turkey are constantly exposed to, and one type of play. Afterwards, it will take a look at what influences Turkey has made in other nearby cultures and countries. Also the impact and influence the history of Turkey has had in that region. Finally it will end with how visible the influences are, and briefly discuss all of its religious influences. The region that Turkey now occupies has very large roots in history, even though the current establishment of Turkey is very young. Before the region was named the Republic of Turkey, the area was called Anatolia. Anatolia has a history of civilization that dates as far back as 10,000 years. In centuries past, this region had been inhabited by the indigenous Hattis and Hurrians. At around 2300 BC the Indo-European Hitties arrived at Anatolia slowly reigning over the Hatties and Hurrians. The Hitties established the first empire in the region and remained settled for multiple centuries. The empire collapsed in 1200 BC and Anatolia was then settled by an Indo-European group known as the Phrygians and the Lydians. The Phrygians settled in Western and Central Anatolia while the Lydians lived in the Eastern region. In the 6th century BC, bothe the Phrygians and Lydians were invaded by the Persian Empire. The kind of Kydia, Croesus, compromised with the Persians to divide their region of Anatolia long the Kizilirmak River as an attempt to stop the invasion. However the Persians did not stick to their agreement and took control of the region until 333 BC. At that time Alexander the Great conquered both the western and eastern regions of Anatolia, and after his death ten…...

Paper on a Cultural Event

...Paper on a Cultural Event HUM/100 02/03/2011 University of Phoenix In May 2007, I took a long flight to the Hawaiian Island Oahu. I flew into Honolulu airport for a 15-day vacation. Samoans greeted me saying, “Aloha’’, which is their greeting word. The trip was a life experience. The natives on the island were very spiritual and musical. All around the island natives were singing dancing and playing instruments. The natives were also skilled in the art of fire knife dance. This was only something that I have seen only on TV and for the first time I am watching in person. The entire trip was a culture event. Samoan Culture My first stop was the Polynesian Culture Center home of the Samoan Fire Knife Dance award winning Ali’I Luau. The 42-acre Polynesian Cultural Center has the largest night show. The show features more than one hundred performers. Fire Walkers and Fire Knife Walkers has been a part of Samoan Culture since the beginning of their civilization 200 years ago. This was something I have watched on TV. In person, watching each performer, he or she can see the passion in their eyes, and he or she could tell they lived it. Not only did the performers do this as an island attraction they did performances with just family and friends at the beach or a family cookout. I thought it was interesting to see even with all the world’s modernizations the Samoan s left time in their lives for family traditions. This was a cultural shock to me to see ancient traditions......

...RUNNING HEAD: ASIAN AMERICAN ADOLESCENTS Cultural Paper Asian American adolescents are a culture group, counselors seldom acknowledge in the counseling interventions. Asian Americans are faced with mental illness due to high academic achievement and refugee status. As counselors being culturally competence to Asian Americans can help assist them with their mental devlopement. They are a very distinct ethnic group that should be considered in the counseling profession. Asian Americans differ in methods and time of migration, language, social class, and religion. Many Americans still believe that the United States is the melting pot for all cultures not showing concern for cultures such as Asian Americans, which may find it to be difficult when integrated with other cultures. Counselors must understand the pressure that is place upon cultures, such as the Asian Americans when forced to integrate to the dominant culture. The United States is considered a free place for choosing the religion in which an individual wants to practice, but yet it seem rather biases against the Asian American populations. Counselors can help give back to Asian Americans what has been taken away from them for many years (religion). Due to counselors’ lack of knowledge and awareness of Asian American adolescents this culture is forced to integrate with the dominant culture, which may not be of their preference. The population of this group is......

...Cultural Test Paper XBCOM275 University of Phoenix Cultural Test Paper Globalization has taken business to an international level. With this level comes a responsibility to learn the cultures of those countries where an individual’s business may take them. What is acceptable in one country may be discouraged in another. Committing a faux pas can cost much more than embarrassment. If offended enough, the company who is being pitched to may decide to forego any business affiliation. It shows good intentions to learn at least the important culture highlights. Japan Performing business in Japan can be a little harrying, but as long as research is done into the business culture, it is ultimately not that difficult. Many things are important to the Japanese; saving face, non-verbal communication, respect, and hierarchy. Saving face is a critical part of Japanese culture. They hate to cause embarrassment, and dislike saying no. In business situations, it is rude to put them in a position where they may have to say no, or to put them on the spot. Non-verbal communication is important because it is possible to misinterpret one’s words, so to ensure they are getting the right message, non-verbal keys are essential. I know that here, when I give a presentation, I take everything into account, but for the Japanese, this goes much deeper. Everything from eye movements, posture, and expressions......

Cultural Evaluation Paper

...Cultural Evaluation Paper XBCOM/275 12/6/13 Rene Cintron Cultural is the characteristics of a particular group of people. The group of people can be defined by language, religion, cuisine, or social habits. The cultural in the US is called the western culture and was heavily influenced by European immigration. This culture’s roots come from the classical period of the Greco-Roman era and the rise of Christianity. The culture in Japan is called the eastern culture. The eastern culture and the western culture were both heavily influenced by religion during its early development. The culture in Japan has not changed much since its development in 660 BC. Japanese people are still extremely protective of their culture and their society. “One good way to make yourself unpopular in Japan is to quote studies that indicate the Japanese are descendants from immigrants from mainland Asia” (Morrison & Conway, 2006, p. 280). In Japan their government is a parliamentary democracy under a constitution monarch. This means that there is an emperor who rules the country. The current emperor of Japan is Akihito. Akihito has been on the throne since 1989. Akihito is extremely respected because in Japan people respect their elders to the highest degree. Therefore younger members of a team should remain quite during meetings. Younger members of the team are on the team to go out to social events at night and build relationships with other younger members of the opposite team. During...

...Competitive Advantages Paper Erika Hamel MGT/498 John Paul Warren 08-11-14 Riordan Manufacturing has a lot in common with the two companies I researched last week. Both Nike and A.O. Smith are trying to a find competitive edges to stay ahead of their competitors, and remain number one against their competition. Riorden is trying to do the same thing. They are trying to implement a tracking system that will track and manage raw material, and finished products across all plants. This will reduce their inventory costs, which in return can make their prices more attractive and cheaper for their customers. This could give them a competitive edge against their competitors. A.O. Smith is trying to create a world class supply chain that has the capability to deliver their boilers and heaters in a time efficient manner to the more than 60 countries in which they operate. This will give them the global advantage of being able to sell their products all across the world, which in return will make them a much bigger company, and increase profits. Nike also is constantly trying find ways to stay current and ahead of their competition. Nike has implemented a manufacturing index, which allows their organization to take a comprehensive look at their factories total performance, and the techniques those contract factories are using to achieve sustainability (Nike, 2012). Nike’s manufacturing index is a very effective assessment tool as it allow Nike to “elevates labor and......

Global Business Cultural Analysis: Turkey

...Running head: GLOBAL BUSINESS CULTURAL ANALYSIS: TURKEY Abstract A global business cultural analysis is a tool used in order for one to become more familiar with a culture, more attune to the implications that the culture has on the business conducted by the people group of the culture, and more aware of the attitudinal and behavioral implications a member of a different culture should expect when working with members of the people group. In exploring the varying cultural elements, one examines the role and perception of women, the role and influence of religion, and the role and perspective of time. The cultural elements have an impact on business that should be considered by a U.S. American seeking to conduct business with members of this people group. Global Business Cultural Analysis: Turkey Primary sources serve to provide a foundation for definitions when pursuing a research project. They are also beneficial for defining terms and establishing reasons behind why one might pursue a particular research topic. When beginning a global business cultural analysis, it is important to understand what is meant by the term culture. Hofstede defines culture as “the collective programming of the mind that distinguishes the members of one group or category of people from another” (Hofstede, 2001, p. 9). The people group focus for this study is the members of the Republic of Turkey. Though the culture in Turkey differs from that of other people groups around the world,......

Toothman October 23, 2014 XBCOM/275 Velvalee Wiley Cultural Evaluation Paper (Brazil) “Brazilians are friendly and free-spirited, with an incredible zest for life. They are very risk-oriented and very creative. Family, educational and socioeconomic backgrounds are important to Brazilians” (eDiplomate, 2014, p. 1). Brazilians would want a presentation of arguments to be light and personal, but still it needs to have all of the informative and educational information that needs to be presented. Before presenting arguments to individuals of Brazil, there are many characteristics an individual should take into consideration. Greeting. Brazilians like to know each other on a personal and family-oriented basis. It is a great idea to take the time to greet each individual as they are escorted to their seats before the presentation. This will allow them to meet the individual on a personal basis. Also it is a good idea to tell each individual good-bye after the presentation to let them know that you care about them as an individual. Body language while presenting. When presenting to Brazilians, it is a good idea to be as close as possible to them, because they like to be close to one another. If there would happen to be a stage in front of an audience, it might be a good idea to stand close the edge of the stage or walk through the crowd while presenting certain points. “The O.K. sign is considered very rude and vulgar; the thumbs......

...EEOC Paper: Sharie Harris-Walker SOC 315 03/15/2012 Emma McCain EEOC Cultural Diversity is about differences that exist in the workplace. Equality has been a breakthrough for some people while it has been a victory for other people. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is an association that strives to guard employees and applicants that are not treated fairly by other workers or companies. The EEOC protects all people. It does not matter what type of work environment they work in or what the problem is. Due to the unfailing assistance that the EEOC offers, African American employees of Findlay will not have to accept being discriminated against or harassed in the place in which they work or terminated for filing a discriminated claim. The Compliance Issue that led to the lawsuit and its ramifications for the organization. The issue was that a parts department manager of the Shack-Findlay Automotive, LLC made racial offensive remarks and jokes on almost a daily basis to African American employees. The parts department enacted harsher rules on the African American personnel than employees who were not African American. Two African American workers were ultimately terminated. One employee was terminated after informing another employee that he was going to bring up a charge of discrimination towards Shack-Findlay. The EEOC protects employees from discrimination based on race and also protects them from being fired if they file a charge of......

Amish Cultural Research Paper

...Amish Cultural Research Paper Amish Cultural Research Paper Imagine living in a society where the members socialize exclusively with each other and not with the outside world. The men of this society dress conservatively in dark colors sporting clean-shave until married when they switch to beards. The women, wearing only full skirts, wear their hair up in a bun and covered with a simple white cap or bonnet. The community, called an ordnung, decides how the community will be run from state to state. The culture itself keeps an arms distance from technology because they believe that it weakens the structure of the family. Planting and sowing of the fields is done by using horse drawn machinery and very rarely does the hum of anything fuel powered echo from the farms. Intermarriages are kept within the genetically isolated society to include first cousins and divorce is not tolerated. The Amish are a horticultural-based culture that consists of a society that is very conservative and strong on religion. The intent of this paper is to focus on the Amish culture, their primary mode of subsistence, and to identify three aspects of it impacted by this mode. History The Amish are a peace-loving, upright, religious group of people, settled happily in different parts of the United States and Canada. They disregard the modern way of life and are content to live their lives preparing for death and heavenly rewards by going without modern conveniences, such as......
