Introduction I remember the first day that I left my son with a sitter in order to go to work. My wife was a trauma nurse who worked three twelve hour shifts starting at 7:00pm and ending at 7:00am. In order for her to get rest, we needed to find a sitter. The funny thing is I remember distinctly not feeling comfortable with leaving my son in this persons care, even though the references she provided were solid. To make a long story short, my intuition proved correct and the situation did not work. I fired the caregiver, perhaps hastily, and now had to figure out what to do about childcare. The hospital my wife worked at had a childcare facility and luckily, they had one opening that would allow us to enroll our son. The facility was clean and bright, very well staffed, and very open and inviting. The trade-off was that the “tuition” was a bit much for a young couple, but we agreed the safety and development of our son was much more important than the cost. Reflecting back on this with knowledge I now have, it is an absolute certainty that the daycare had a formalized system in place; however, I cannot identify which method. This “system” is the distinguishing factor between the two examples provided above. In one case, the caregiver assumes the role of guardian. The responsibility, if taken seriously, is to protect the child from harm and provide for the child’s basic needs. Robert Furman recognized in 1966 that caregivers are in a unique position to do something more for the child than just keeping them safe and fed (Dougherty, 2009). He recognized that the caregiver could affect the child’s learning and development. Furman posited that childcare experts could be linked with care providers to assist them with their development. In essence, providing an education to the providers who in turn could use the newly acquired skill to provide a rich…...

Leadership Approach

...Leadership Approach Dick Tracy LDR/531 September 10, 2012 Bill Clinton Leadership Approach There have been a lot of different studies conducted to identify the different forms of leadership. Leadership traits can be broken down into five different areas from trait approach, behavior approach, power-influence approach, situational approach, and integrative approach. The one leadership approach that best matches my leadership style is the power-influence approach. According to University of Phoenix Organizational Behavior (2011), Power is important not only to influencing subordinates, but also for influencing peers, superiors, and people outside the organization, clients, and suppliers. The strength of power-influence approach is the ability to influence leaders and others into thinking a certain way. Not only thinking a certain way but also making them think it was there idea and it’s for the good of the team. While following all the rules and policy established by your company or organization. With power-influence approach force is not needed because your power is already established. The weakness of power-influence is the ability for some people to use pressure or other means to influence people or organization to be what they are recommending. If the receiving party......

Leadership Approach

...RUNNING HEAD: LEADERSHIP APPROACH PAPER Leadership Approach Paper University of Phoenix LDR 531/ Organizational Leadership March 31, 2013 Leadership Approach Research on leadership has been occurring for centuries and has continued to evolve over the course of time. So much research is available that it is necessary to categorize it to emphasize potential relationships that tie them together. According to Yuki, "common practice is to limit the focus to one type of leader characteristic, namely traits, behavior, or power" (Yuki, 2010, p. 13). Focusing on the trait approach, a definition will be provided and an evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of this approach will be discussed. Trait Approach Trait approach is defined as "personal attributes (or traits) of leaders, such as physical and personality characteristics, competencies, and values"(Fleenor, 2006, p. 830). The idea behind early research was that certain people had traits from birth that enabled them to be leaders. Researchers have created lists to describe the character......

John Perkins Review

...Book review Confessions of an Economic Hit Man John Perkins’s book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man left an unforgettable impression. As Perkins says himself it is a confession. A confession of a greedy man, a man who allowed himself to be an economic hit man, a man who took advantage of that he was born in one of the wealthiest societies in the world. Perkins shares his knowledge about how one country wants to control the wealth of the whole world, corporatocracy. What he shows is that in developing countries there is a huge gap between rich and poor, usually only one family controls the most of the wealth in the country. United States provide loans ‘for development’ through organizations like The World Bank and USAID. By those loans they create a vision that they help poor people to get jobs and to have a better life, but in reality only wealthy people get the benefits. Country can’t cope with the loan and therefore becomes obligated to United States. Perkins describes his life as an economic hit man, his work in MAIN. He was MAIN’s economic hit man, provided economic forecasts in favor for the loan. Perkins also describes how he stopped taking part in making less developed countries obligated to United States. Perkins begun writing the book in 1980, but threats and bribes always convinced him to stop. Even though, the book was finally published in 2004. I believe it takes a lot of courage to write a book like that despite everything. Confessions of an Economic Hit......

Rational Approach

...Rational Approach Grant Bowden BUSI 610 Liberty University Abstract This paper begins with a concise introduction on the rational approach. From there the paper moves into defining the rational approach as it relates to decision-making. Next, the paper makes mention of Benjamin Franklin utilizing “pros” and “cons” in his decision making process”. Following this, there is a quick mention on uncertainty as it relates to financial risk as well as a brief mention of a step-based rational decision-making approach. After the definition section there is an application section which deals largely with uncertainty as well as intuition of a decision maker. It is argued that the rational approach fails to address certain aspects of uncertainty but does allow for improved decision making as a whole. Finally, the paper concludes concisely noting that the rational approach is not fully achievable in the context of the real world as it is intended for an ideal state bounded by rational criterion. Rational Approach The rational approach to individual decision-making allows for managers to operate in the context of an ideal systematic method. Decision-making, particularly in the context of an organization, can be difficult with significant complexity and multi-faceted dimensions. Operating outside of a specific framework can increase the difficulty for managers to make the best possible rational solution resulting in arbitrary and sometimes non-optimal decisions. The......

Charlotte Perkins Gilman Research Paper

...With over 200 written works, Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s career as a writer is a force to be reckoned with. Many of her works, such as the ever popular The Yellow Wallpaper, are considered classics and remain relevant in today’s society. Gilman is most popular for her work deciphering women’s roles and treatment in society in the past and during her life. Gilman’s works are relatable to all women who have experienced or are experiencing oppression by society. Gilman’s feminist outlook is clearly seen in her academic works as well as her short stories. Especially in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, feminism was starting to accumulate among women of all ages. Gilman has been compared to other great feminist writers such as Simone de Beauvoir and Betty Friedan and they all share a common theme: their personal life correlates with their writing. Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s personal struggles with oppression contribute to her success as a feminist writer, as exemplified in her works Women and Economics, Herland and The Yellow Wallpaper; Gilman’s controversial opinions on male dominated societies and women's rights label her as an icon for implementing social change in the 18th/19th century because she steers away from traditional Victorian gender roles. Born in Hartford, Connecticut on July 3rd, 1860, growing up was difficult for Gilman and her brother as her parents split due to their different views on women’s rights. Her father’s family was very liberal and believed in freedom...

Parenting: Amy Chua vs. Hanna Rosin

...Bridget Johnston Writing 101S Writing Assignment 1: Comparison and Contrast Essay March 22, 2015 Parenting: Amy Chua vs. Hanna Rosin Is there a right way to raise your child? There are really no set rules on how to raise your child, as we can see throughout the articles written by Amy Chua, a self-described “Chinese Tiger Mom” and Hanna Rosin, a “Western Mother,” in The Wall Street Journal in January 2011. These articles show that the two authors have completely different parenting styles. On one hand, Amy Chua believes kids should not go to sleepovers, be in school plays, and get anything less than A's in school except for gym. Meanwhile, Hannah Rosin believes that children need some freedom to express themselves. There are many differences between the two styles but each has had its own success in raising children. On January 8, 2011, Amy Chua wrote an article entitled, “Why Chinese Mothers are Superior” to explain how Chinese parents raise successful kids and produced so many math wizzes and music prodigies. In response to that article, Hanna Rosin wrote an article dated January 15, 2011, entitled “Mother Inferior?” with the subtitle “Amy Chua has the diagnosis of American childhood exactly backward. Our kids don’t need more drills and rules. They need to lighten up and roam free.” “Western parents are extremely anxious about their children’s self-esteem.” (Amy Chua) Chua in the following statements definitely makes it clear that grades are first priority then......

A Hybrid Approach to Ethics Is the Best Approach?

...A Hybrid approach to ethics is the best approach? Virtue ethics is an agent-centred theory thus focuses on the person performing the action themselves rather than then the action they perform. Virtue Ethics was developed by Aristotle, however, is originally based on Plato’s four cardinal virtues; courage, temperance, prudence and justice. A follower of virtue ethics would believe that the goodness of something should not be decided on by an action or principle such as the hedonic calculus or the five primary precepts of natural law but in the development of virtue, of personality, thus showing that we should use our moral wisdom to state what is good and go right back to the basics. In Nicomachean ethics, Aristotle believed we should follow at total of 12 virtues in life, however the main 4 virtues consist of courage, temperance, prudence and justice. Another criticism can arise when looking at VE, in particular when looking at the virtue of temperance. Temperance can be described as promoting mediocrity thus showing that you would be rational hence not being adventurous when making a decision about something, you would not feel any passionate or anger if you constantly stay in the mid-way point, are you really living a full life? Neo-aristolean Alasdair MacIntyre criticises modern ethics. MacIntyre believes we should strip back to our virtuous ways and believes we should focus on three questions that can be seen at the heart of moral thinking, the first being the......

Case Study : People V Perkins

...Paper Dennis Consumano People v Perkins On July 26th, 2010 , Perkins had been charged with six offenses. They were: Driving While Intoxicated, Driving While Ability Impaired, Resisting Arrest, Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle in the Third Degree, Reckless Driving and Driving at an Excessive Speed. Over the next two years, Perkins appeared in New York Court 25 different times. Perkins had traveled from her home in North Carolina each time. The People had answered “not ready” on many occasions. This, of course, goes against one of the CPLs we covered; CPL 30.30, which deals with speedy trial time limitations, in particular section (1)(b) which states “(b) ninety days of the commencement of a criminal action wherein a defendant is accused of one or more offenses, at least one of which is a misdemeanor punishable by a sentence of imprisonment of more than three months and none of which is a felony” (Findlaw). March 22nd, 2012, four misdemeanor charges were dismissed on the grounds of CPL 30.30. The remaining two traffic infractions, however, were not dismissed. That is, until July 24th, 2012, when Perkins motioned to dismiss these remaining two charges. Citing, more specifically, CPL 30.20 which deals with speedy trials in general. Perkins claims that, this 90 day limitation is now two years, and her right to a speedy trial has been violated. Being that the delays were all caused by the People, at the expense of Perkins, who has now had a......

...company has significantly different strategies in Europe, Americas and Asia. Top managers in different regions have considerable freedom in decision making. As notice by Kajda (2009), regiocentric orientation is usually associated with the increase in decentralization in the enterprise. V. GEOCENTRISM Geocentric orientation is the one, which is present when an organization treats all foreign markets as the one, i.e. global, market. The global market is understood as a single market, i.e. sociologically and economically uniform. Of course, this uniformity is much simplified, but a geocentrically oriented organization assumes that some differences can be deliberately forgotten. Moreover, that customers would accept such a universal approach (Radomska, 2010). According to Keegan and Schlegelmilch (1999, p. 21) “the geocentric orientation represents a synthesis of ethnocentrism and polycentrism; it is a “worldview” that sees similarities and differences in markets and countries, and seeks to create a global strategy that is fully responsive to local needs and wants.” Geocentric orientation focuses on a strong, decisive behavior and taking benefits from the economy of scale. It leads to improvement in the quality of offered products and services and in the efficiency of using the global resources. On the other hand, there are high costs associated with human resources, personnel management, etc. The costs arise due to the need of training activity, efficient......

A Psychoanalytic Approach to "The Yellow Wallpaper"

...A Psychoanalytic Approach to “The Yellow Wallpaper” The short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” first appeared in the January 1882 publication of The New England Magazine, a monthly literary magazine published in Boston. Authored by Charlotte Perkins Gilman this short story was not well received at printing and was not reprinted until twenty-eight years later in William Dean Howell’s collection,The Great American Short Stories in 1920. As part of the collection it gained some popularity for a time and then just died out again. Unfortunately this was the extent of the life of her work while she was still alive. However in 1973 the story was reissued by the Feminist Press with an exceptional commentary by Elaine Hedges and finally became popularly rediscovered. Elaine Hedges explained the work as a “pioneering masterpiece of feminist literature” (Pompele 61). Since the publication, theorists using a Feminist approach most overwhelmingly study the story.Gilman’s emphasis on the importance of language and text, and the fact that “The Yellow Wallpaper” is a tale of mental breakdown, make Lacanian psychoanalytic a natural way to consider the work in order to help readers understand the author’s use of language as a manifestation not of herself but the “other” as a means to safely express herself. As an autobiographical story there exist very undeniable connections between Gilman’s personal life and that of the narrator. A study of “The Yellow Wallpaper” is quite remiss if......

She begs him not to, and this leaves the only solution of being confined in her room. In her room she discovers yellow wallpaper that is able to reflect the current situation she is going through. Her thoughts and imaginations make her to arrive to a point where she is broken angry about her life. In either way she does not get the answers to whatever she is looking for and this worsens her illness. The thoughts behind the yellow paper reveal the main purpose for the author of the story. The paper also generates the main themes for the story that differ from different written stories (Mays). Theme of Self-expression The main theme in the story would be the lack of self-expression. It refers to revealing of one's thoughts and personality at free will. Gilman wrote the story at the time when women faced......
