ABSTRACT Breadth This Knowledge Area Module (KAM) broadens common knowledge of societal and cultural development by looking beyond economic and conflict theories for understanding other positions regarding social advancement. The Breadth Component studies societal and cultural development in terms of evolutionary, cyclical, and fundamentalist theories and demonstrates why it is important to looking beyond the popularly accepted knowledge about social development represented by economic and conflict theory. This approach provides a more robust generalization that more adequately describes social advancement, and concludes that classical researchers did not consider leadership as a social segment to be studied, that influences societal and cultural development. Leadership understanding of societal and cultural development is critical for enabling them to lead positive social change.

ABSTRACT Depth The Depth section compares modern research in societal and cultural development to the theories of classical researchers in order to further develop the findings of the classical study, and to determine if leadership consideration has been addressed in modern times. The study shows that the theories of classical researchers are sufficiently robust to support a consistent, continued basis for understanding societal and cultural development into modernity. This study broadens the Breadth section presentation, and demonstrates that modern researchers continue the classical paradigm, adding depth and…...

...live in a world overloaded with information and keeping something hidden has become a tougher task than it was 20 years ago. This eruption of information has resulted in the growth of a class amongst the masses who are more politically and socially aware than the previous generations. However, it is also important to realize the costs that this knowledge can concur on one’s individuality and perception of events. Media in all forms is a prime source of information today. It helps mould people’s opinion, is a catalyst for social progress and is also creating a populace which is politically aware. There are multiple private news channels, numerous magazines and newspapers along with varied Radio channels in operation today in Pakistan. Much of this progress, ironically, has come under the tutelage of a military dictator of Pervez Musharraf in the past decade. This begs a question: does the lack of provision of knowledge in totalitarian regime impede the social progress of its subjects? Pakistani media industry has blossomed from a sole state-sponsored TV channel to an efficient profiting industry. It’s not a surprise that many of the private TV channels are run purely as a business entity because of which journalistic ethics suffers unfortunate casualties. However, it is these channels which are responsible for much of public awakening too. They are responsible for deliverance of the most relevant and sensationalist news stories which would probably have remain dormant in the......

...Cho1 Count of Monte Cristo (Outline) Controlling Purpose: In the novel The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas presents the idea of moral injustice through the character Edmond Dantes. Dumas presents that even the most righteous people fight against the line between good and bad but end up choosing evil over virtue. Joseph Rao Kony, who is an infamous man, demonstrates the act of moral injustice through his unethical actions. Kony kidnaps children and forces them to join his army in which he uses them to kill other people.   I.  In the beginning of the novel, Edmond Dantes is introduced as a trustworthy and honorable young man, which is contradictory to his personality near the end of the novel. A. Although Dantes is displayed as a spiteful character, he was once an admirable fellow before he got unlawfully sent to prison. 1. He had just become captain of a ship and was leading a pretty decent life. He had a promising future ahead of him. 2. Baron Danglars, Fernand Mondego, and Gaspard Caderousse, who were all jealous of Dantes, plot a scheme in which they would get rid of him. 3. They decide to have him locked up in prison. B. Dantes turns vile, seeking revenge on those who had him sent to prison. 1. Baron Danglars and Fernand Mondego are his first two targets. Cho 2 2. Once Dantes finds out that Danglars and Mondego are leading undeserved affluent, prosperous lives, he creates different disguises and uses those disguises to...

...delivery of health care and the health care profession are new. As we confront the legal, moral, and ethical aspects of health care, we are seldom faced with decisions that require or are resolved by simple right or wrong answers (Edge & Kreiger, 1998). In the Breadth component of KAM VI, I focus on several ethical theories and how those theories influence the way ethical issues and concerns are addressed and managed in the allocation and delivery of health care services. I critically assess and evaluate those theories, concepts, and derivative principles as they impact important decisions and the implications of those decisions within the context of social change and with special emphasis on health care management and policy. In addition, I discuss the key assumptions on which the selected theories are constructed, compare and contrast the writers’ interpretations across theories, and conclude by providing a critical commentary on the merits of the selected theories. Abstract Depth Component In the Depth Component of KAM VI, I review and critically analyze selected articles on contemporary concepts and methods in ethical decision-making relative to the delivery of health services. I also attempt to build on the theories, perspectives, and conclusions discussed in the Breadth Component, and compare and contrast the views of the classical theorists with those of the more contemporary writers that are reviewed in this Depth component. The vast majority of......

...The Impact and Future on Nursing In this paper I will discuss the goals of the 2010 Institute of Medicine (IOM) published report and its impact on nursing education, nursing practice specifically in primary care and the impact on the nurse as a role of leadership. In my conclusion, I will provide on a personal level what modifications I will make in my nursing practice to meet the IOM report goals. Within the paper I will explore how the impact of the 2010 IOM published report titled “The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health” has on the three topic points stated above. The IOM published report was set forth by the IOM’s Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Initiative on the Future of Nursing committee group whose purpose is “producing a report that would make recommendations for an action oriented blueprint for the future of nursing” (IOM, 2010, p. 2). The basis of the IOM report is to provide proposed changes with the newly implemented Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 to the very complex United States healthcare system and how the future nurse’s role should evolve with education, practice and leadership. The IOM recommends that “Nurses should achieve higher levels of education and training through an improved education system that promotes seamless academic progression” (IOM, 2010, p. 163). Today’s healthcare needs are expanding, diverse and ever changing. Nurses play a large role in providing care but cannot do so effectively if they are not being educated...

Social: There is currently an anti-social movement against mobile phone due to thugs using mobile phone to film violent attacks and beating of innocent members of the public and the heath risks concerned with the uses of mobile phones and cancer risks. The UK population has a population of over 60 million, although the population demographic is aging – this means that Vodafone has to market to market to the aging market. Technological: Britain used to be in the forefront of technological advances with such pioneers as Isambard Kingdom Brunel and an industry based on industry. Now it has changed mostly into the service sector. The UK is highly reliant on technology with 67% of the population having access to the internet and over half the population has a mobile. There are also increases of mobile technology being used domestically for example in central London car parking ticket meters are being replaced with pay by text technology . Porter’s five forces Refer to Appendix 1 to view Porter’s five forces diagram 1. The threat of substitute products There is low product differentiation in the mobile phone industry, it can be suggested that the brands of the mobile phones are more important than network operators, therefore product differentiation in Vodafone home market could only be successful if in conjunction with the major phone manufacturer brands – for example 02 and the Apple I-phone The main substitute for......

Principles of Health and Social Care

...As a health and social care practitioner it is important to have a clear understanding of the theories that underpin health and social care, understand the legalities and policies and be aware of the situation that you work within. This allows care staff to provide adequate care to the service users and allow them to feel safe knowing that they are being protected against any harm whilst protecting yourself. Social processes, such as poverty, unemployment, and disability, can impact users of health and social care services. When assisting service users it is important to have an understanding and a knowledge of various structures. Individuals that are born into poverty more than likely come from a lower socio-economic background or area and have a higher rate of being unemployed, lowering their chance opportunity. Unemployment may contribute to a person becoming poor as they might have lost a job that they already held. Mental and physical disabilities can also have an impact on unemployment as an individual may not have the same opportunities as someone who is more able. This may be the situation if an individual is either born with a disability or acquires one in later life. Poverty, unemployment and disabilities can have severe impacts on a person’s life, including depression, drug or alcohol addictions or abuse, homelessness or may lead to some mental health issues. In some cases a service user might have previous history or emotional poverty and/or domestic violence......

Yannis Katsoulacos is a Professor at Athens University of Economics and Business, Athens, Greece. Abstract Purpose – The purpose of this article is to establish a strategic management framework that supports the integration of corporate social responsibility principles and stakeholder approaches into mainstream business strategy. Design/methodology/approach – A top-down and bottom-up approach was used to develop the proposed framework. The top-down approach focused on analyzing the main strategic management theories including social responsibility movements to identify complementary concepts and create a relevant topology. The bottom-up approach was based on empirical research on the views of business companies on corporate social responsibility, a review of best practices and case studies mainly in Greece. Findings – The paper describes a stakeholder-oriented integrative strategic management framework linking the main strategic management theories across value, responsiveness and responsibility dimensions. A mathematical model is presented describing the synergistic development of advantage-creating knowledge......

Case C – M-Commerce: the Past, Present and Future

...CASE C – M-COMMERCE: THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE Q1 - What is the 8 seconds rule of Internet and why is it so important for m-commerce technology? The 8-second rule is an old rule of the Internet; it is the rough unit of measure of the performance of a web server. This rule was implemented when Internet was taking its first steps. It indeed specified that if the loading time of a web page exceeded eight seconds, Internet users would not wait any longer. Yet the fact remains that this rule no longer applies as a much higher percentage of Internet users have reliable Internet connections, which allow them to upload almost all websites in less than a second. M-commerce is the ability to conduct a transaction while using a mobile device. There are two frequent types of usage of the m-commerce, a mobile user can buy something online from his mobile web connection, or he can use his mobile device as a way of physical payment in a shop (which thus replaces money, checks or credit card). There rules are truly fondamentals when talking about making m-commerce technology a reality: reliability, security and speed. In fact speed is a critical need for the development of m-commerce, one will not use its mobile phone to pay for something if it takes longer than using a regular money payment. Furthermore, todayeveryone expect us to be very fast, and we live much faster than former generations used to, and this has only been possible through technological improvement. This boils......

I’ve done a lot of business with Orleans Elevator in Bloomington over the years, but just wonder how long this will continue. I have much invested in my manufacturing plant located right next to their plant, but now that United Technologies [the parent company of Orleans] is all into this FreeMarkets Internet purchasing system, I just wonder how long they are going to be interested in keeping me in the supply chain loop. It’s been a good business over the past few years. I was in the right place at the right time when Orleans got into just-in-time and lean manufacturing in the late 1980s. Initially I was just making the control panels for the elevators. It was interesting to walk into a new building, get on the elevator, and see my company’s handiwork in that beautiful stainless steel panel that houses the buttons for the floors on the building. I could take a lot of pride in the craftsmanship even though it was largely a technology thing. That new numerically controlled machine tool that I purchased in 1985 made making the holes in those custom panels easy. We are still making beautiful panels. Since that time, my company has gotten a lot of other business from Orleans. We now make all kinds of special......

I M Foucasing on Term Paper

...The given set of factors requires a discussion of the rules relating to formation of a contract, particularly focusing on offer and acceptance. According to the section 2(h) of Indian Contract Act 1872, “An agreement enforceable by law is a contract.” There should be two items which are objected to make contract are (i) An Agreement and (ii) Legal Obligation. In section 2(e) defines that, “Every promise and every set of promises, forming the consideration for each others, is an agreement.” From that definition it is clearly stated ‘promise’ is an agreement. However in section 2(b) which defines the term “when the person to whom the proposal is made signifies his assent thereto, the proposal is said to be accepted. A proposal, when accepted, becomes a promise”. An agreement is the total combination of “Offer” and “Acceptance”. However in this case Mini gives a promise to pay TK20000 as a reward to whom who finds her each items of lost jewellery. An agreement to become a contract must be able to rise to a legal obligation, a duty enforceable by law. If an agreement is incapable of creating a duty enforceable by law it is not a contract. As all we know that “All contracts are agreement but all agreements are not contracts.” Section 2(h) according to the Indian Contract Act 1872, however provides some essential elements to create legal contracts between two parties. These ares- To make a contract the first and foremost things is that there must be legal offer and legal......
