In this time of day we still have people that are against legalizing marijuana, but now it brings up discussion about marijuana if United States should legalized marijuana for medical purpose. Now you have to ask yourself something, why is marijuana illegal in the first place? If the government wants to legalize it for medical purposes, why not completely legalize it. So the question is if prohibition is here to protect us, does the prohibition really work? Where in today’s studies there no proof that marijuana is harmful to the American people, so let take a closer look on why marijuana should be legalized in Untied States. Couple years now the discussion of legalizing marijuana is coming up a lot more nowadays. It’s showing that marijuana is actually more useful than people think. So the government is thinking about legalizing marijuana for medical purposes. That raises some red flags, because everybody thinks it so harmful, but that’s not the case. “Actually it’s a proven fact that marijuana does not kill brain cells, it actually stimulates the brain cells and helps them grow.” (The Union-Adam Scorgie 2011) “Also from today polls there are no record death from Marijuana.” (CNBC-2011) Let’s take a look at a poll taking by
“The United States government National Institute on Drug Abuse, Bureau of Mortality Statistics: TOBACCO……….400,000 ALCOHOL …………………… 100,000 ALL LEGAL DRUGS ………….20,000 ALL ILLEGAL DRUGS ……….15,000 CAFFEINE …………………….2,000 ASPIRIN ………………………500 MARIJUANA …………………. 0” (http://legalizationofmarijuana.com-2011) It’s amazing how a drug that’s suppose to be…...

Beyond Benchmarks

...Beyond Benchmarks: Estimate Your Application Maintenance Costs Using Internal Data by Phil Murphy EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Applications professionals struggle to explain the cost of their applications' ongoing operations and maintenance to their business counterparts, who commonly perceive the costs as excessive. The business perceives these costs as excessive in part because of the way applications professionals deliver the information — as a large and indecipherable lump-sum budget item. Applications professionals who want to avoid blind mandates to cut costs by "X" percent must break out application costs in a way that business people can analyze and digest. When they do, they give the business an opportunity to make smart, surgical reductions to costs and shift underutilized resources to the work that is most important to the organization, increasing overall agility and innovation while reducing wasteful spending habits. IN SEARCH OF "INDUSTRY STANDARD" BENCHMARK COMPARISON FIGURES When business and IT executives push back on the costs of applications, they raise a common set of questions such as, "Are we spending too much?"; "What do other companies spend for the same services?"; and "How do we measure up against 'industry standard' measures and benchmarks?" The erroneous assumption is that "industry standards" exist for virtually every category of IT spending. The term "industry standard" implies that an industry such as manufacturing or insurance agrees to use a......

Beyond Capitalism

...Michael Hargrove Soc 4010/5010 Instructor Montez de Oca 10/19/12 Beyond Capitalism America Beyond Capitalism: Reclaiming Our Wealth, Our Liberty, and Our Democracy, by Gar Alperovitz claim’s that our political/economic system can no longer sustain equality liberty, and democracy to the American working class. Alperovitz argues that a radical change to our political-economic system is needed. He also believes that it is at the lower or grassroots level that this change has to take place, but that it is going to take some time and a lot of commitment on their part. An analysis of Alperovitz’s book America Beyond Capitalism provides a unique but radical perspective on overhauling our political/economical system. However, his perspective depends on the American working class people to create a new political/economic system in order to restore equality, liberty, and democracy. This idea is plausible, but reducing the federal government down to the city and state level is highly unlikely. Alperovitz claims that our political/economic system can no longer sustain our equality, liberty, and democracy for working class Americans. Alperovitz’s first argument is on equality. His concern is that globalization, changing technologies, and sectoral balances are creating a widening gap of inequality. The decline of labor unions has enabled the corporations to lead a number of campaigns that have challenged redistribution programs. Globalization has increased the influence of large...

Limelight and Beyond

...LIMELIGHT AND BEYOND When I think of the city Aurangabad, the things that come to my mind are the narrow lanes with roadside stalls, the brightly lit up local restaurants, the sound of meat sizzling on huge tawa stalls, the typical aroma of mughlai food. The Mughal influence is so dominant on this city that the very thought of this place paints a picture of the Muslim cult residing here, their culture and lifestyle. Every food journalist that comes to this city to explore its local cuisine is tempted into an involvement with the ever famous dish ‘’Naan Qalia’’ which has its roots embedded so deep that its story starts way back into the time when the Mughals shifted their capital from Delhi to Daulatabad in the thirteenth century. Naan Qalia has great historical significance and has somehow become the equivalent to the cover page model if local food of Aurangabad were a fashion magazine. Naan Qalia was designed by the cooks of those days to feed a large army that was travelling to Daulatabad from Delhi so it needed to be nutritious and wholesome. Naan is a yellow, puffy looking bread which is served with a thick, rich and spicy gravy made of minced meat which is most of the times beef and the locally available spices. In modern times also Naan Qalia is the most sought after dish In Muslim weddings and functions. Every local chef has his personal touch to the dish and it’s a secret that they guard fiercely. Abdul Jabbar is one such person whom I came across and met when I was......

To Infinity and Beyond

...To Infinity and Beyond until Across the Universe Have you ever wondered if there are any extraterrestrial life forms in the universe? An extraterrestrial is defined as life that does not originate from Earth. It is often also referred to as alien. “Alien” is a very familiar word even though many of us have never met or seen them. They are in TV or movies, and especially the Hollywood productions love to make movies about extraterrestrials. For example, ET (1982) is one of the famous SF movies. The alien, ET is very friendly to people, and it has an ability of making object flying. Since they are only a part of blockbuster movies, most of times people are careless about aliens; however, there are many incidents that show they are real. There are three significant signs that prove they are real such as we are able to suspect another life form in an infinite universe, have UFO sighting everywhere in the world, and have experiences of many people’s alien abduction. First, there must be another life form among the limitless galaxies. Since the universe began in the Big Bang about 15 billion years ago, it has constantly expanded. Therefore, the universe is infinite and Earth is just considered like a grain of sand. The universe is divided into two parts; the observable and the non-observable. There are countless planets and solar systems in the observable universe. Is it true that the Earth is the only planet where life exits in the infinite universe? If there are sunlight......

...happy because he was not so alone anymore. While all these positive things are happening to him lighter, more uplifting music is being played. When some of the negative obstacles occur you will see that darker, and deeper music is playing. Music is a gift that controls the tempo of what is going on, and the music in this story persuades the audience on how they should feel. I think that this short film is very effective and has very great morals to the story. No matter what go for what you want. Brandon realizes the challenge, went through obstacles, and later resolves the conflict. The acting, the setting and even the music all tie in together to make the story more effective because these elements make a great story. Because feelings go beyond words in this film it is critical for the acting, the setting, and the music to all work together in the right way. Trapped in a minor state of depression failure becomes expected and accepted but never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game....

Beyond Bikinis

...Assignment 2: Beyond Bikinis Trina Small Strayer University Marketing 100 Professor Zoppi March 15, 2014 Beyond Bikinis Description A long time ago, when girls and boys were playing and swimming together, plus size women sat and watched. Many plus size women use to hide their bodies in grandmother style swimsuits, or matching short sets. However, now all of that has changed with Beyond Bikinis. Beyond Bikinis is a small family business that makes sexy swimwear for women with curves. Plus size women can now be proud and sexy in their flattering full figured swimsuits, which are specially designed to cover up unflattering body parts but also, compliment their figures. Beyond Bikinis will cater to the body style that is least represented, plus size women (size 12 and up).These swimsuits will be for women with ample breast, hips, thighs and a “pouch”. Beyond Bikinis offer sexy one piece suits and a number of different styles of two piece suits. These plus size swimsuits will enhance the best features of your body while covering the areas you are not as comfortable revealing. Therefore Beyond Bikinis are very selective when choosing the colors and designs of the swimsuits. Beyond Bikinis are made in dark colors like black, blue, and brown that will help make your body appear more slimming. Also, some swimsuits with a crisscrossed design help our women give the illusion of a smaller waist. In addition, we have swimsuits with a deep V-neck and halter tops that will...

...the 1990s is referred to as the second wave of regional initiatives, or “new regionalism”, to distinguish it from the first round of RTA formations that occurred as after-effects of the European Economic Community (EEC), that was established in 1957. The inception of the EEC led to signing of a few RTAs in Africa and Latin America from the 1960s to the 1980s, but the EEC remained the only successful regional integration initiative until the mid-1990s, when another wave of regionalism occurred, as shown in figure 1. In addition, most of the Agreements notified to WTO in 1970s and 1980s were those in the European Community3 enlargement notifications. The “new regionalism” of the 1990s differed from the first wave of regionalism as it went beyond the tariff preference exchanges in goods, as it covered the entire globe rather than just Western Europe, and had a growing interregional dimension as many of the RTAs were no longer between countries of the same region (Busse and Koopmann, 2002). There are, in general, three objectives for forging regional alliances: (a) To promote economic cooperation among countries forging such alliances; (b) To build a sense of security in order to facilitate political harmony within a region; (c) To enable the countries concerned to achieve international competitiveness in the current era of globalization. Although these objectives provide a politico-economic rationale for establishing RTAs, they cannot explain why there has been a sudden spurt in...

Beyond Flextime

...Organizational Behavior Beyond Flextime: Trashing the Workweek J.A. Counter’s ROWE program includes influence tactics as well as a couple of power bases. The influence tactics prevalent in this case are soft tactics because they are worker friendly and not coercive at all. Inspirational appeals are present in this case because the decision to incorporate ROWE into the work environment at J.A. Counter is a direct approach to appealing to all employees. They are no longer bound by set days and times to be present at their jobs but rather given the motivation to complete their tasks by a certain time but at their own pace, hours chosen, and days preferred. This tactic is used to appeal to the employee’s. Consultation is another influence tactic evident in J.A. Counter’s ROWE Program. Employees now voluntarily set up different people to perform different tasks when the normal employee responsible for the given task is not present. The employee’s have learned to participate in planning (for the absence of another employee), make decisions (together), and roll with the changes. In alternating performing various tasks, there is slight evidence of the exchange influence tactic at work in this case also. The most prominent base of power evident in J.A. Counter’s work environment is the managers reward power. Although the freedom to come and go whenever and without notice or permission, has not been stated a reward, to the employee’s (given the increase in productivity),......

Beyond Budgeting

...Beyond budgeting is a leadership philosophy that relates to an alternative approach to budgeting. Beyond budgeting supporters suggest that traditional annual budgeting should be eliminated rather than simply be improved as it is fundamentally flawed (Hope and Fraser, 2003). This approach has drawn worldwide attentions. In this essay, I will explain principles of the beyond budgeting and evaluate its usefulness in practice. In order to conduct beyond budgeting, five principles are proposed. Firstly, the beyond budgeting suggests applying rolling budgets to replace annual budgeting. Rolling budgeting breaks down annual budget by months for the first three months, and by quarters for the remaining nine months. The beyond budgeting employs wider range of non-financial measures as well as some financial measures for control. Non-financial measures include consumer satisfaction, environmental contamination and so on. For example, OilCo, an oil company, set targets linked to stakeholders’ expectations and focused on avoiding accidents. This helped the company to be more customer-orientated rather than being preoccupied with meeting sales targets only, delivering a long-term growth of profits and shareholder value. Moreover, key performance indicators could be utilised in this case. Because management performance will be evaluated based on those indicators, beyond budgeting could be better linkage with strategies than traditional budgeting (Hope & Fraser).

Beyond Flextime

...Michelle Artus Organizational Behavior Case Analysis – Beyond Flextime: Trashing the Workweek What influence tactics and power bases are evident in this case? Explain. Research initiated by David Kipnis and his colleagues in 1980, reveals how people influence each other in organizations. The Kipnis methodology involved asking employees how they managed to get their bosses, coworkers or subordinates to do what they wanted them to do. Statistical refinements and replications by other researchers over a 13 year period eventually yielded nine influence tactics which I have indicated below. The first five are considered soft tactics because they are friendlier than and not as coercive as the last four tactics which are considered hard tactics because they involve more overt pressure (Kreitner & Kinicki, 2010, p. 437- 438). NINE TACTICS (Kreitner & Kinicki, 2010, p. 438) * Rational persuasion – trying to convince someone with reason, logic or facts * Inspirational appeals – trying to build enthusiasm by appealing to others emotions, ideas, or values * Consultation – getting others to participate in planning, making decisions, and changes * Ingratiation – getting someone in a good mood prior to making a request; being friendly, helpful and using praise or flattery * Personal appeals – referring to friendship and loyalty when making a request * Exchange – making express or implied promises and trading favors *......
