The transformation of the United States into a Multicultural society did not happen overnight. However, the concept of equal treatment or any subordinate ethnic groups attempt at advancement and integration if it was not assimilation were met by stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination. In every scenario from each Ethnic groups story reviewed, between chapters 6-14 of Racial and ethnic groups, whether it was about the Native Americans genocide, the African Americans civil rights or the Jews migration and the anti-Semitism they faced, the background story remains the same. The positive side is that with time things do change and as more researchers, writers, teachers, and Politian’s persist to bring national and global attention to these inequalities U.S. society has been forced to change in various areas, the work force being one of the biggest areas.

Stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination and other racial labeling are used to identify each minority ethnic group and given names like Culture and Ethincity. Ethnic groups are categorized by a name, a Race, as if there physical appearances were not enough to set them apart from one another, thus labeling their identity. Labeling an ethnic groups identity with Stereotypes encourages an unreliable, exaggerated generalization about all members of the group that do not take individual differences into account (Schaefer, 2011). For instance, Surveys show a complex view in the United States of Arab and Muslim Americans. One in four people believe that Islam teaches violence and hatred. (Schaefer, 2011). Or David Riesman’s phrase Gook syndrome, describing Americans' tendency to stereotype Asians and to regard them as all alike and undesirable (Schaefer, 2011). But regardless of how accurate or inaccurate the stereotypes may be, when applied by people in power, they can have a very negative consequences for the people…...

Multi Projects Case Study

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This submission identifies the various challenges portrayed in the case study. It presents an evaluation of these challenges and seeks to identify the causes which led to the challenges. Multi Projects Incorporated is a company that provides a consulting service, it relies on the acceptance of project proposals in order to generate revenue. In the case study, Multi Projects Incorporated has two projects which have been awarded to the organisation. These are at different stages in the project lifecycle. The Goodold project is presently in the Implementation Phase, while the Growin Corporation project has just been awarded to Multi Projects Incorporated and can be said to be at the Initiation Phase. The dilemma presented is that the project manager of the latter project, Jeff Armstrong, is not incumbent of a team player. This submission elaborates on the factors which appear to have caused the dilemma in the organisation, as presented in the case study. The factors include organizational strategy, organizational structure, human resources development and communication. These factors are presented as the driving force behind what appears to be a project manager who is displaying undesirable characteristics. Recommendations as to what and how change should be affected are provided in order to drive behaviours which are perceived as more favourable when considering effective project leadership.   TABLE OF CONTENT Declaration ...

Multi Layered Security Plan

...Poppa Smurf IT255 Friday, 6pm Mrs.Creighton 7/12/13 Multi-Layered Security Plan When developing a multi-layered security plan, you must look at each of the seven domains of the IT infrastructure and increase security on each of those domains. The seven domains are user domain, workstation domain, LAN domain, LAN to WAN domain, WAN domain, and remote access domain. Increasing the security on each of those seven domains will increase the overall security of the system and create a multi-layered security plan. In the user domain, one of the easiest ways for the system to be compromised is through the users. Easiness of user’s passwords can be a major problem so we need to implement complex passwords including eight or more characters, both upper and lower case, and use of at least one special character. Passwords will need to be changed every three months and the same password cannot be used again for one calendar year. In the workstation domain, we need to make sure that each of the workstations, whether desktop or laptop, has to have antivirus and malware protection installed on them. Express strict access control polices and standards. And mandate annual security awareness training for all employees For the LAN domain, Make sure wiring closets, data centers, and computer room are secure. Use a WLAN network keys that require a password for wireless access. And implement encryption between workstation and WAP to maintain confidentiality. In the LAN-to-WAN domain,......

The Multi-Store Model

...The Multi-Store Model Multi-store memory (MSM) illustrates the three memory stores which we apply to hold information we pick up - this idea was put forth by Atkinson and Shriffin (1968). The MMS consists of the sensory storage which holds the information collected by our senses. This type of memory store is continually receiving new data, but the majority of it is ignored. The information gathered only stays in the sensory store for a very short episode of time, it is either disregarded or if the individuals' attention is focused on one of the senses it will be transferred to the STM. So the primary step of remembering is paying attention in the first place. Information is then moved from STM to LTM. This is done through rehearsal, where the same incident occurs repeatedly so that is remembered more easily. Atkinson and Shriffin said that the more frequent the information is rehearsed the more accurate it recalled, therefore showing a direct link between retrieval in STM and the strength in LTM.  This shows that memory works with three stores; sensory memory, STM and LTM. There have been many studies which have shown that there are three different memory stores. Several studies found that certain parts of the brain were needed for short term and long term. E.g. Milner (1966) discovered that if the hippocampus (LTM) was removed then the individual could not form any new long term memories, however they had no problem performing STM. Other psychologists (Glanzer and......

Multi Projects

...7 March 2014 Case study: “Multi Projects” First Draft Evaluate the case and propose a solution. Prioritise the steps to be taken in your approach, be systematic and motivate your assertions. After examining the “Multi Projects Inc.” case, it is clear that the rapid expansion of this company has both the employees, and their clients chasing after very big results without the proper planning before the implementation to start, and going about their execution of the desired projects in the wrong way. During this evaluation, we will analyse the communication channels, determining why there is a problem between the employees communicating. We will determine how we will go about the best way to start the “Growin Project”, how to devise the correct project proposal, organizational structure, resource utilization, and compiling the most effective project team for the Growin Project, and still to accommodate current/existing projects. Multi Projects Inc. has a Matrix organizational structure, but is ineffective; the employees have formed their own communication channel, and completely ignoring the proper communication structure that is already in place. Completely cutting the ‘functional managers’ out, and discussing new projects with the ‘functional employees’ themselves, over ruling the authority of the higher communications. Multi Projects Inc. taking on projects in the range from $20 000 to $1 Million, and with a project duration ranging from 1 month, to 2 years, makes it...

Multi-Grade

...As teachers of multi-grade school, you are normally faced with more challenges and constraint than a teacher in a mono-grade school or class. Multi-grade teaching has remained an unrecognized phenomenon globally including Jamaica. Base on this concern the writer sets out to introduce you to the nature of the multi-grade school and the challenges that principal, teachers and students experiences in the implementing curriculum instruction. Multi-grades are found in very rural or remote communities, where population are scattered. Within these areas there are not many teachers or students, so one classroom has different age group and grade. These students are in one class and taught by one teacher; for example one class comprises of grades 1, 2, 3, &4, 5, 6 or 1&2, 3&4 and 5&6. The multi-grade class structure is known by various names in different countries; these include 'composite' or 'combination' classes, 'double' classes, 'split' classes, 'mixed-age' classes and 'vertically-grouped' classes (Veenman, 1995). Multi-grade school can be defined as a class in which students of two or more adjacent grade levels are taught in one classroom by the one teacher for most if not all of the day, such multi-grade classes are embedded within the traditional graded system: students retain their grade level labels and are promoted through the school with their grade level cohort (Mason & Burns, 1996; Veenman, 1995). Expectations of Teachers in Multi-grade......

Global Multi-Product Chile

...Global Multi-Products Chile “They want to sell integrated solutions but are not integrated themselves” The company’s vision was to be the most innovative enterprise and the preferred supplier and the preferred supplier by developing technologies and products that created a new basis of competition and by helping customers grow their businesses. STEEPLE factors have a massive impact on how things turnout for a company in a particular country. Multi-Products Inc. encountered many problems in Chile as well. Socially, Chilean culture tends to be more reserved. People here are self-centered and don’t look beyond their immediate circle of friends and family. Difference in educational backgrounds and differences regarding recent political history have polarized society. Technology plays a pivotal role as well in bringing in clients and aligning work in an integrated system. When one looks at how Chile has moved from a command economy to a market economy you can actually look at the massive change that has taken place. Numerous companies have been privatized after decades of being in the public sector. U.S retailors that have moved in from North America have also caused a change in nature of Chilean retailors. Environmentally, small central area dominates in terms of population, north Chile has mineral wealth and the southern region is rich in forests and grazing lands. Politically, Chile moved to having a very stable government compared to the anarchy in the pre-90’s era.......

Evaluation of the Multi-Store Model

...The multi-store of memory was proposed in 1968 by Atkinson & Shiffrin, it suggests that memory is a flow of information through a series of systems. There are three distinct stages of the system; sensory memory, short term memory and long term memory. Information passes through each stage of the system in a linear fashion by maintenance rehearsal. Also, external stimuli, like hearing the headline for the day's news, first enters the sensory memory in an uncoded form where they are registered for a very minuscule period of time. It is not until we focus our attention on the object, for the information to be transferred to the short term memory. For example, we notice everything our eyes see, but we do not transfer it all into the STM, otherwise we would remember everything that happened. However, once something has our attention, the short term memory stores 5-9 items in an acoustic code for around 15-30 seconds. It is therefore easy to forget things at this stage, as information will be lost within 30 seconds unless it is repeated or rehearsed. Memories from this store are lost either because new information comes along and pushes the old information out, which is called displacement, or because they simply fade away which is called Decay. However, if information is sufficiently well rehearsed (the most commonly accepted theory is that the information is transferred from the STM to the LTM by elaborative rehearsal) it is processed into the long term memory store. In the long......

...manager has no authority to control resources should a new project arise – Not having access to resources makes it impossible for the project manager to complete the task. | Divisions should have access to resources. | No career growth – when a project is completed, the project manager returns to his old position of being an engineer. This doesn’t encourage growth. | Once an engineer has shown that they could deliver and have capabilities, they should be promoted to be project managers. | 3.3. Stakeholder Management A clear stakeholder management structure with stakeholder engagement on multiple levels and communication plan is a critical successful factor for the implementation multiple project. There is a clear lack of a multi-level stakeholder engagement and communication in the Eton Division. Project stakeholders are individuals, groups and organizations that are actively involved in the project, or whose interests may be affected as a result of project execution or project completion. They may also exert influence over the project's objectives and outcomes. Stakeholder management is a critical component to the successful delivery of any project, programme or activity. A stakeholder is any individual, group or organisation that can affect, be affected by, or perceived itself to be affected by a programme.

Multi-Level Security Plan

...Project Part 1: Multi-Layered Security Plan When creating a multi-layered security plan, I would look at all seven domains of the IT infrastructure and then increase the security on each of those domains because that will increase the security for the whole plan. In the user domain, this is the quickest way for the system to be compromised the users. So I would implement complex passwords including eight or more characters, both upper and lower case, and use of at least one special character. Passwords will also need to be changed every 90 days and the same password cannot be used again for three calendar years. In the workstation domain, I would make sure that each workstations, whether desktop or laptop has some security on it like antivirus and malware protection installed. Laptops can be very vulnerable for loss or theft, which would make me install an encrypted hard drive so if it is stolen the data can only be retrieved by the owner. For the LAN domain, just train all users about email scams. I would guess that most users know not to access suspicious emails when on our system but I would still implement to the users a quick training course. Then I we should add spam filters this will help get rid of most of the junk email. In the LAN-to-WAN domain, we need to shut down the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server we have running and switch it over to use secure FTP so that only users allowed on our system can access our FTP server. In the WAN domain, we...
