The article Ã¢â¬Å" On Face-Work,Ã¢â¬ by Erving Goffman, focused on meanings of face, the image of self that individual presents, in a world of social encounters. Once an individual give out his positive self-image to others, should or should not present that oneself-image depend on how he feel about the encounter between him and other participants. When someone is inconsistent with how he projects himself in the society, he may be feel embarrassment or discredited; therefore, the individual protect himself of unfavorable way to others. Face is image of self portray have been expressed to others see and consider. Emotions and feelings become attached to the particular face; so he may have feel good, feel bad or being hurt depends on how his face expresses and how the encounter products. He Ã¢â¬Å"feels goodÃ¢â¬ if the situation proceeds on the way, which he expected to be, whereas if his expectations are not fulfill, his feeling turns bad. Beside, Ã¢â¬Å"rule of the group and the definition of the situationÃ¢â¬ determine importance in how face and image of self are viewed because it is not only response to others, but oneÃ¢â¬â¢s own emotion lead encounter. What someone say, or how they say it can change how a face is seen from another eyes. So, a person may implicate his own immediate and spontaneous face, which creates image and feeling itself without conscious considerations, to other participants. Internally consistent face, involves judgments and evidence from other, is one whereby the person is in maintain face. It is not only actions of one person, but also the view of participants Ã¢â¬Å"in the flow of events in the encounterÃ¢â¬ ; that is maintained. Someone said to be wrong face when information that comes from external source is inconsistent to his face. Alternately, the person may be out of face when he has no line to show up in certain situation, even though they are in contact with others. When people are in wrong face or out of face, some may feel shame, interiority, or they may have bad feeling; some may keep presenting an impression of confident. Those who know how to control embarrassments called poise. There are several methods for prevent to threats to the face. Avoidance, one of the basic kinds of face-work, process by changing the topic of conversation and acting as the threatening expression has no occurred at all. Once someone change an encounter into inconsistence, another kind of defensive measure, he action or resources to keep of or away from activities. Protection maneuvers- Ã¢â¬Å"a person shows respect, politeness, making sure to extend to other any ceremonial treatmentÃ¢â¬ . When someone loses control of his expression during encounter, he can turn away or time out for moment. For example, two people are in conversation and one turn to mad, to control the temper of encounter, another decide to leave him or his active for a moment to give him time to calm down; so they can avoid fighting. Ritual disequilibrium or disgrace, one or more participants find themselves in an established. Ritual means the system of ceremonies, respect, or acting with symbolic component. Interchange is the sequences of acts set in motion that re-establishment of ritual equilibrium. For example: Marry collide to David in the small hallway, A says, Ã¢â¬Å" Excuse meÃ¢â¬ and then B replies Ã¢â¬Å" SureÃ¢â¬ . Those speeches are corrective ritual. There are four classic moves. First, the challenge, participants take on responsibility to the misconduct. The second move is offering, the offender is given chance to correct to correct or restore equilibrium. The acceptance will been occur after the first and second move had been made. The person to whom can satisfy or re-establish the order of offense. Finally, thanks, the fourth move, provide model for ritual behavior, but deviation from model may include refusing to change. Those parts may fit better when interact together than separate into conscious ones. Lack of effort by one may be met with inducible compensative effort from others. Simultaneous apology is the chances for this happen. Many offenders and offended simultaneously attempt to an apology to reduce their criminal. Resolution of situation- the first requirement is more important than apportioning of blame- typically a secondary consideration. There are many more other protect individual. A participant appreciates a delicate situation and to do or say the most fitting thing for different reasons with saving his own face and the face of other, called tact. Then, Ã¢â¬Å"tacit cooperation will naturally arise so that the participants together can meet shared but different objectives. Ã¢â¬ One of common tacit cooperation is face saving. Face saving refer to maintaining a good self-image, defense his own face and protect the other. People who make a mistake or involve in conflict know they are wrong often not admit that they are wrong to avoid embarrassing remonstrance. Another form of tacit cooperation is reciprocal self-denial. A person just accepts apportionment of judgment during the occasion without having clear idea about it. Negative bargaining means participates try to make a trade to other side. For example, they try to pay a lunch for other like: Ã¢â¬Å" Let me pay for this oneÃ¢â¬ or Ã¢â¬Å" No, I could not. It is my turn. Ã¢â¬ Therefore, tacit agreement is someone willing to abide, to help others perform theirs. Without ritual, socialization could not organize or worth as it is. Self, the image was expressed from the social interaction that creates face of person. Or the self can understand as play the game or set of ritual. When the person make the mistake that against himself, the person have the prerogative to for give the event is not he, it must be the other participants, who are Ã¢â¬Å"exercise it only in his interests or in the interests of the undertaking. Ã¢â¬ Much of activity in the encounter occur base on the understanding and effort of all participants, not only individual. And if the relationships are in the process of change that mean the encounter has been satisfied. The authorÃ¢â¬â¢s point in this article is to allow the reader to understand the concept of face such as commitment, maintenance of face, poise, and how to deal with social process in social relationship, interaction, and encounter. The meaning of word face is the positive social value of person claim. He considers emotion, feelings, embarrassment, confidence, and give examples; make these as a part of his analysis of social face. Goffman also focus on the produces and processes of many kind of face-work like ritual, corrective process, avoidance process, and control embarrassment. He is also conscious and attributes meaning to symbol and action of other. What someone says or how someone acts can always change how face in the other eyes. Therefore, how the encounter goes is depend on everyoneÃ¢â¬â¢s part to understanding, effort to get through the occasion. The Sociological perspective that I am applying to this article is the Symbolic Interactionist Paradigm. Because this perspective is micro sociology- how face-to-face interaction create the social world, and how face presenting interacts between participants in encounter. Face, image of self is like language sign that others would understand your felling as you express. Any emotions in your face tell others help you avoid bad situation. Being polite attitude is a sign of peace; in contrast, being cocky or angry face would start a fight and probably put you danger. Two people are in conversation and one turn to mad, to control the temper of encounter, another decide to leave him or his active for a moment to give him time to calm down; so they an avoid fighting. As if you blurt out of words during conversation, your action and how you express your face after that would affect your friends to whether forgive or not. The emotion present in your face would reflect the way people judge you. After reading the article Ã¢â¬Å"On Face Work,Ã¢â¬ I learned many ways to prevent an incident in which lead your relationship downhill. I believe people can understand each other through by looking at othersÃ¢â¬â¢ emotion and guess their thinking without any word. I think there are some people express their motion and cause many trouble for them.

My first team work was in the 1st semester in Research methods. The task was to form the group and write the research paper on chosen topic. Our group of four decided to look at the demographic issue in Germany. This topic was something that we were all interested in so it was not a problem choosing the topic that we all agreed on. We first decided what we wanted to look at and how we were going to achieve this. In our first meeting we decided to split the topic into more specific topics: reasons, problems caused and future predictions. We set up a next meeting in one week and agreed that each of us will do a research on these topics. In our second meeting, we discussed our findings and distributed objectives for each of us. A list was created of the tasks we needed to perform and then we allocated each task to a time slot within our meetings. Our group worked well together as everybody had almost 100% attendance and was committed to getting the project done. However, we did have problems keeping to our schedule. At the very beginning, we conducted various researches which was useful for our paper and there we reached our first challenge- a lot of necessary information was provided only in german and 50% of our group was non-german speaking person. We had to redistribute topics for each of us based on research capacities. This speeded up the whole process. A large amount of time was spent during these meetings on the summary of our findings. This left us a lot of time when we came to the write up of our report. Another problem with our report was its incompleteness. As we put our parts together it looked like there were 4 different research papers in one. We had different structures, writing styles and some of group members in his/her part included information of his/her fellow topic. These issues required extra meetings and to rewrite the whole report.

Recidivism - Essay Example In the paragraphs to follow, light shall be shed upon the reasons for recidivism, the measures taken to reduce the recidivism rate, the problems encountered in carrying out those measures, and most importantly, the methods used to measure the recidivism in a society and the problems encountered in attaining an accurate measure of the recidivism. Over 60% of the people released in 1994 were rearrested within 3 years for a severe violation of the law. A startling 25% of the law violators were convicted to prison over a fresh criminal offence and 46.9% were reconvicted. 2.5% of the law breakers previously arrested for rape were rearrested for another rape and statistics for homicide also showed a similar pattern as 1.2% homicide convicts were rearrested for committing another homicide (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2007). Non-sex offenders made up the larger part of the repetition of the offences as compared to sex-offenders. It was observed that non-sex offenders were about six times less likely to be convicted for a repetition of a sex offense. When analyzing Recidivism, it is important to delve into the intricacies of Habitual Offenders and Psychopathy. Both subjects are brought under extensive analysis when a system to reduce recidivism is required. Habitual Offenders Habitual Offenders are law breakers who are classified to have a tendency to commit repetitions of a crime. Legislation is designed to discourage habitual offending tendencies and rehabilitation programs are designed and implemented to allow for habitual offenders to curb and eventually eliminate their tendency to repeat offences. Habitual Offenders are given the highest level of significance by law enforcing agencies in not only western countries but also in eastern countries where habitual offenders are often subjected to constant surveillance (Duhaime, 2008). Law enforcement agencies in certain countries exercise a policy to bring in habitual offenders for questioning when a crime has been committed that can be related to the nature of offence that the habitual offenders are known for. Psychopathy Psychopathy is defined as a bent of mind to commit a crime simply for the sake of breaking it and any amusement or thrill that it gives to the offender (Arkowitz & Lilienfeld, 2007). The term Psychopathy is often substituted by the term sociopathy, however the core of the matter remains the very same. It is a behavioral tendency to carry out destructive actions because of a mindset that is more than often defined as a personality disorder. Psychopathy is one of the most studied and researched of issues under Recidivism because most recidivism offenders are recorded to either be psychopaths or have shown streaks of behavior that can be defined psychopathic. It is important to high light here that media based portrayals of psycho-pathetic behavior are more than often exaggerated and deviate from what the actual mindset of the psychopath. Traditional studies have outlined Psychopathy to be a mix of traits that include a tendency towards egocentricity deceit, manipulative outlook towards achieving desires and a severe deficiency of remorse regarding any activities (Hare, 1996).

Knowledge initatives in business august 06 resit - Essay Example Ã¢â¬Å"Over the past 15 years there has been a growing interest in international strategic alliances and how organizations learn from their partners and develop new competencies through their collaborative efforts.Ã¢â¬ (Simonin, 2004) Hewlett-Packard and Ernst & Young are two such companies at the leading edge of their industries, partly because their company culture values and promotes the development and application of knowledge within the company. We will look at and compare these two companies and see how their strategy works to promote a network of useful knowledge being creatively applied, and how this has affected the companies. Hewlett-Packard and Ernst & Young are in two different industries, computer hardware and peripherals and business and financial consulting respectively, but they each leverage e-commerce solutions to promote and carry on business. They both employ very comprehensive websites, which are accessible and useful to the public to cultivate new business, serve current customers and spread knowledge about the company. These websites offer education, customer support and an infrastructure which facilitates both business to customer (B2C) and business to business (B2B) sales. Let us first look at each company and how it operated, its corporate culture and the methods employed for knowledge management. Then we can compare these to see what they have in common and how they differ, with perhaps and understanding of the reason for similarities and differences and how they work for each company. Ernst & Young is anything but young. The current company is a result of several mergers since the inception of the UK company Harding and Pullein in 1849. When American Frederick Whinney and his sons became partners in 1859, the company was renamed Whinney, Smith & Whinney to reflect the change. In 1903, Alwin and Theodore Ernst established Ernst in Cleveland, while Arthur Young and Company was formed in Chicago in 1906. So all original

Post 9 11 America - Research Paper Example This could be divided into, A. Suspicion Prior to the terrorist attack, the interaction between various persons in the United States of America was smooth. This was very good at societal and national level. After the attack, a different perspective on things viewed innocently changed. The citizens were unaware of when the next attack could be conducted. As a result, they became more suspicious in everything they undertook (Tweedie 1). For the people with Arabic origin, they were perceived to be sympathizers of terrorism and thus were somehow alienated from the society. A good example is the removal of six Muslim imams from the plane due to them raising suspicion to other passages and the airline administration. B. Discrimination This followed from the risen suspicion of the American citizens towards people who were Arab, Muslim, Sikh, and south Asian (Gohil and Sidhu 91). This was mainly because they were either perceived to be directly or indirectly involved in the attacks. In some cases, vandalism was conducted. In the call for the construction of a mosque in USA, the citizens demonstrated in a bid to obstruct the implementation of the idea. This clearly indicated that people of Muslim and Arab origin were not accepted in USA. As time has been passing on, various transformations have been achieved in which the interaction has been building up. Since not all Arabs and Muslim are involved in terrorist attacks, various persons processing the same faith have declared their intentions in assisting in identifying people linked to terrorism (Smith 1). C. Department of Homeland Security The successful conduction of the terrorist attack on 9/11 indicated the limitation in capacity of the American security forces at the time. As a result, it was necessary to form a body that would entirely be mandated in looking into potential threats in USA and taking precaution in order to ensure that similar attacks were not conducted. This was implemented by the formation of depart ment of homeland security. It has since then been very useful even in cases of natural disasters. Its council conducts their control from the white house. Due to its importance in national security, it has continuously been transformed as the technology advances and currently it forms part of the top three cabinet departments in the US federal government. Thus despite the attack bringing pain and suffering, other merits such as formation of department of homeland security were reaped. D. Politics The attack led to numerous transformations in the US politics. At the time, both parties combined their effort and brought forth the necessity of implementation of foreign policies that clearly addressed the issue. A good example is the Patriot Act passed by the congress and signed by the president at the time, George W. Bush. The act reduced restriction initially imposed to the security officers. As a result, intensive search was conducted to persons at various locations in a bid to identi fy and prevent terrorist attacks (Drash 1). In addition, the officers were capable of looking into the personal details such as communication and finance. The secretary of treasuryÃ¢â¬â¢s authority was empowered to regulate financial transactions especially those involving foreigners. After the attack, terrorist was modified to take into account domestic terrorism and many immigrants suspected

Personal and Professional Development - Assignment Example During the time that I was working at the orphanage I learnt that those children were faced with a lot of challenges especially those who went to government school.

He was ordered to complete this mission by Black Hand; a secret military group. The rest were primary causes of the war but were not immediate. One of them was militarism. Britain had an immense army that Germany envied. They began to compete towards building larger armies that meant increased arms and weapons.

In any case of war, those countries were expected to protect each other. The alliances were a threat to cause a world war if any country confronted one of the allied countries will cause all the rest to come forward.

Tattoo and Work Essay In my synthesis essay I will talk about both sides of having a visible tattoo by using the articles Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos in the Workplace: Whats an Employer to Do?Ã¢â¬ , The Relationship Between Body Modification and GPA. and Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos Gain Even More VisibilityÃ¢â¬ . These articles work together to show the pros and cons of living with a tattoo whether it is in the workplace, visible or for a religious purpose. The article Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos in the WorkplaceÃ¢â¬ ¦Ã¢â¬ , the article explains all the reasons in why someone with a tattoo shouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be judged off only that. It also talks about how doing such is a violation of the law. In the article Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos Gain Even More VisibilityÃ¢â¬ it mentions how in todayÃ¢â¬â¢s society visible body modifications have become more popular and accepted. In the article Ã¢â¬Å"The Relationship Between Body Modification and GPAÃ¢â¬ , the article summarizes a study done of young people aging from 15 till 25. In the relationship between the three articles I think tattoos should be accepted as long as they canÃ¢â¬â¢t be seen in the workplace. These articles will prove and go against my opinion that tattoos in most cases should be a loud in a workplace as long as it isnÃ¢â¬â¢t visible. Rejecting someone for a job because of their tattoos is a form of discrimination and should not ever happen. Before reading these articles I had no stance about tattoos because I had none myself. In this issue the audience will be interviewers and employers who think tattoos interfere with someone being able to work with the public. In a scenario about a girl being interviewed for a job with some visible religious tattoos, she went in for an interview but after the interview she found out she didnÃ¢â¬â¢t get the job and wondered why. In the article Ã¢â¬Å"The relationship Between Body modification and GPAÃ¢â¬ , the articles main issue is, is there a relationship between tattoos and students grades. The article goes into description about the study and the specific questions the experimenter asked the study subjects. In the conclusion the experimenter found out that there was no relation between the students having body modifications like tattoos and piercings and the grades that theÃ students had. In my experience as a student, tattoos and grades had no relation. It depends on what kind of student you are in whether or not you will have good grades. I have no tattoos but my grades arenÃ¢â¬â¢t perfect, which is a perfect example of why tattoos and grades have nothing to do with each other. A good question to ask that group of students would be does having a interest in tattoos and piercings stop you from spending money of school needs like books and materials for projects? This essay adds to my argument on w hy tattoos should be permitted in the workplace since the study showed that tattoos and no relation with grades. In the article Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos in the Workplace: Whats an Employer to Do?Ã¢â¬ the author supports my thesis that a person being a good worker has nothing to do with a tattoo. It explains how having a face tattoo can be distracting to the customer but is it worth losing a good worker? The article also talks about where the tattoo is placed in relation to your job. Ã¢â¬Å"For example, the odds are that a four-star hotel may not want the concierge to have large tattoos of skulls and crossbones on the back of each hand. But the same hotel may have less concern if a dishwasher in the kitchen has those same tattoos because direct contact with the hotels customers is minimal.Ã¢â¬ This sentence from the article brings up a good point. But at the same time judging someone based off their body modifications would be morally wrong. This article backs up my claim because it brings up certain grey areas that you have to look at when saying a person shouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t get a job based on their a ppearance but it also shows that someone with 50 tattoos could also be a genuinely kind individual who is dedicated to their job despite the body modifications. This was a good article to back up my original claim. On the other hand you have to look at all the grey areas. Can hiring someone with visible tattoos of a skull or vulgar language be off putting to costumers? A company could lose money by hiring someone that would turn the public off with their tattoos. Having a tattoo of a naked lady could be very inappropriate and distracting. In a job interview, if you were not qualified having visible tattoos could just add to why you shouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t get the job. There is also a concern in tattoos causing infections that can affect your skin forever. These articles all speak about the same topic and are in agreement with each other and my opinion. In all three articles they agree that tattoos should be accepted in the workplace. And in the articles, they all list different valid reasons. In my scenario Sarah, the girl with the religious visible tattoos is also very qualified for the job but her tattoos were on her wrist so during the job in human resources she would be working with a lot of people and it would be exposed every day. Just like in the articles they bring up the issue of what job could having a visible tattoo not be accepted in. Is having a job with the public and having a visible tattoo impossible? Just like in the article Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos in the Workplace: Whats an Employer to Do?Ã¢â¬ they bring up someone not being accepted for a job based on their religious tattoos religious discrimination. Society has changed its perception on tattoos and how it doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t relate to your job. In the article Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos Gain More VisibilityÃ¢â¬ the main subject is how in the society we live in today; more people are getting tattoos in visible places like the neck and hands. In the article, Ã¢â¬Å"Necks and hands, said Joshua Lord, an owner of East Side Ink on ManhattanÃ¢â¬â¢s Lower East Side, were the last taboo.Ã¢â¬ speaking about how now people are getting tattoos in these places compared to years ago. Ã¢â¬Å"Ã¢â¬Å"But recently IÃ¢â¬â¢ve done them for doctors and funeral directors and teachers, and a lot of hairdressers,Ã¢â¬ who use hand tattoos as conversation starters, he said.Ã¢â¬ this shows how tattoos can be used as advertisement or a means of conversation. This article argues on my side of view. It like the other two proves how tattoos have no relation with the good quality job a person is able to do. The article also talks about the popularity of tattoos now compared to before. What may concern some old school thinkers is that visible tattoos may be here to stay. Speaking from someone with no tattoos, IÃ¢â¬â¢m excited to get my first one. The articles Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos Gain More VisibilityÃ¢â¬ , Ã¢â¬Å"Tattoos in the Workplace: Whats an Employer to Do?Ã¢â¬ and The Relationship Between Body Modification and GPA. back up my claim that tattoos should be accepted in the workplace. It is discrimination to judge someoneÃ¢â¬â¢s fit for a job based on body modifications. Having a tattoo is just one aspect of a person and having a tattoo shouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be held against them. There are certain situationsÃ where someone might have a racist or controversial tattoo which might make them working in the public impossible because of customers complaining about their tattoos. If the tattoo is not disrespectful to anyone then there shouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t be a problem. After reading this article I have a stance on how I feel about tattoos. In some ways tattoos can get in t he way of you getting a job and that isnÃ¢â¬â¢t morally right. My scenario was about a girl would didnÃ¢â¬â¢t get a job she was qualified for. It wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t stated if it was because of her religious tattoos or not. After my opinion on tattoos not being relevant, do you think Sarah didnÃ¢â¬â¢t get the job because of her tattoos or maybe a unknown reason?

Tourism industry of Ukraine The Ukraine has to reclaim former days of esteem with so much promised yet very little delivered,this it would seem is the position of her tourism industry.The country itself has bountiful natural assets with the Carpathians in the west and the steppes to the east;fulfilling a panoramic delight of land,sea and river.The World Economic Forum had the Ukraine very low down the listing for competitiveness in tourism.Pricing and infrastructure in the industry is considered to be weak Ukraines percentage of GDP(Gross Domestic Product) is very small compared to its neighbours,for example Bulgaria.It is considered that a large portion of revenue from tourism arrives with the business traveller.There are always reasons for everything and the Ukraine is no exception.Historical and contemporary issues have contributed to this position so positioning the country behind its regional neighbours.It has very little global profile with poorly developed domestic facilities hindering progress. Investment has been somewhat variable and inconsistent following independence.The countrys bureaucracy is considered to be disproportionate to its needs.Yet the prospects have to be exciting especially following the Orange Revolution(the people electing Viktor Yushchenko)placing the Ukraine on the touristslists as a must-see region to visit.There is the capability of very rapid improvement with astute management,belatedly.Additional impetus has arisen with Ukraine securing the hosting of the Euro 2012 football championships. The President declared 2008 to be the Year of Tourism and Resorts promising financial assistance and to promote the implementation of key policies for the development of tourism within the Ukraine.He also pledged to promote the image of Ukraine to all countries of the world. Yet for quite some years the Ukrained was a very popular tourist destination.During the Soviet Era the partys elite were harboured in palatial villas and the masses catered for in the huge holiday camps.These were to be located in the Black sea region and the Crimean peninsula.The Crimea has a near perfect climate very similar to the Mediterranean.Winter sports were to be found in the Carpathian highlands.A number of hotels reserved for business were built some still doing business in Donetsk and Kyiv.The transport network linking with other regions of the Soviet bloc were efficient especially the northern route to Moscow;although communications to the satellites of Hungary,Poland and Czechoslovakia were not so developed.Development of the railways also had a wide dispersion of airports serving the region. That was yesterday for with the dissolution of the Soviet bloc popularity as a tourist destination along with many other of the Soviet states has declined to almost nothing.The Crimea has witnessed a very sharp decline.Turkey,Cyprus and Egypt have become harbingers of the new wealthy Ukrainians;with a dramatic rise in the popularity of winter holidays in Europe,skiing holidays in Austria for example. Visits to the Ukraine consist mainly of those travelling to work or visiting relations.To the west of the country many have relations living in Romania,Moldavia,Hungary and Poland;while to the east they are to be found in Russian itself.It has been estimated that around 75% of visitors to the Ukraine would be from Russia or other former Soviet bloc countries. Ukraine is now only second to the Philippines for the supply of seamen.They are to be seen on all flights both overseas and domestic travelling to embark at Odessa or the neighbouring port of Ilichivsk.Continuation of the old ways of bureaucratic control with jobs for the apparatchiks and the ever present criminal activity ensures a slow transition within the Ukrainian market.The country is very much less developed than its former brethren of the Central and Eastern blocs in tourist growth.What has given the most impetus recently is the relaxation of the visa regime.Visa restrictions were lifted by the Orange government in 2005 for citizens of the European Union,Australasia and Japan,North America.This has proven to be a great success due to the recent enlargement of the EU accommodating to Poland,Slovakia,Hungary and Romania.Austrian Airlines were established in the Ukraine in 1993 have become the beneficiaries of this upsurging.Passage across the frontier has shot up by 95% except that to Russia that amounts to only a 1% improvement.The reasons for this being the retention of old bureaucratic nonsense with letters of invitation often accompanying visa presentment,still in force.Yet although hugely received by the tourism sector it is still only experimentally enforced. A matter of concern for domestic tourism is the transport infrastructure.The railways used to be premium but have been neglected and the road network falls below European standards.The Kyiv-Odessa motorway is the only route worthy of name. There has also been a noticeable decline with the airways.Numerous problems have disturbed progress and a bevy of local airlines poorly serviced are mostly run by local concerns at the whim of the owners who do not own the aircraft anyway and are well below true operational standards. There is present however prospective hope because the country in fact has vast potential with opportunities blatantly festering beneath the surface.Committment and resolve and a certain amount of courage is required and for those willing to apply themselves to the task rewards will be substantial.Inevitable change is alive and will not be thwarted because of the ongoing political dispute. Thailand is a destination that is facing a very real threat resulting from the development of domestic political events,impacting upon its position as a tourist destination.Two sparring adversaries of the political scene have produced an undermining of the tourism confidence.Occupation of Bangkoks international airport,December 2008 resulted in major disruption.Thailands reputation as a transit point for travelers and airline operators has been seriously damaged.Some recovery occurred following the yellow shirts occupation of the airport but has been compromised by the opposing faction called the red shirts.Fifteen heads of state had to be evacuated from Pattaya representatives of countries who are especially valuable because they are source markets for Thailands tourism industry.The Australian Prime Minister had to turn back en route by plane without even landing.The red shirts motives for undermining the authority of the Thai Prime Minister has been counter productive.It has proven to be an expensive victory. Tourism consists of 6% of the GDP for the nation,with a multiplier effect creating hundreds of thousands of jobs in the country;jobs that have been put into jeopardy by such acts of irresponsibility.Although the riots did not have any real impact upon visitors the impact on Thailand as a tourist destination has become very serious.The considerable charm of the Thais no less absent withinTAT can do nothing to reassure those tourists who simply will not be visiting again. Tour operators are now liable for cost of repatriation should anything arise that compromises the well-being of their clients.That said the obvious follows,it is that few are now prepared to take a risk on Thailand.They are in fact advising their valued clientele to go elsewhere,to destinations that are more stable politically.This makes for good business sense that will be very difficult to change following the recent events.Thailand is no longer a magnet of paradise for anyone who simply wants a blissful few weeks t hey have been saving for since last year.Alternatives are now readily available such as India,Cambodia,Laos and the lonely beaches of Vietnam. Thailand is another victim of the economic global downturn and the tourist budget has to be trimmed,the Thai Baht being unusually strong there is no inclination to make the effort for a round the world flight and to a place that is dangerous.The government office warns of risks involved if any visit is being contemplated.For the TAT reducing visa fees and bland reassurance will simply not work with a very significant decline in tourist arrivals spelling this out.

Pollution Essay: Silent Spring, How Rachel Carson Changed the World :: Environment Environmental Preservation
Silent Spring - How Rachel Carson Changed the World On September 27, 1962 Rachel Carson released her sixth book, Silent Spring. On publication day, the advance sales of Silent Spring totaled 40,000 copies and another 150 copies were sent to the Book of the Month Club (Frontline: Fooling With Nature, 1998). Silent Spring remained on the bestseller list for almost a year. The world was beginning to take notice. Countless experts and organizations have proclaimed Rachel CarsonÃ ¢s book the starting point of the environmental movement. Carson described numerous case studies where the use of hazardous pesticides, insecticides, and other chemicals led to environmental problems all over the world. Whether directly or indirectly, everything in the environment is connected and affected by each other. Silent Spring describes, in depth, the harmful effects that chemical control has placed on all components of the environment. They include: air, water, land, wildlife, plant life, and humans. I will discuss each of these categories as examined in Silent Spring along with my personal analysis. First I will discuss the damage from chemicals released in the air. Aerial spraying of pesticides, mostly DDT, began on a small scale over farms and forests. With the development of new insecticides and the availability of planes from the war, the sky almost literally turned into a shower of toxic chemicals. The justification behind the massive sprayings of the 1950Ã ¢s was to exterminate exotic species like the fire ant, and the gypsy moth. The spraying was extremely careless, and resulted in heavily populated towns and cities repeatedly being sprayed with DDT (Carson, 1962). Unfortunately, people and wildlife sprayed with DDT along with other chemicals had no warnings and no way to protect themselves. The government, without consent of those affected, risked the health of those exposed to the pesticides and the quality of the environment. Nearly everyone was exposed to the risks, in a direct or indirect way, from the extensive aerial spraying. As described in the book, the gypsy moth is not a native of the United States. It had persisted in the U.S. for a great number of years without any need for extensive control measures. Carson states, Ã £Yet drastic action was suddenly taken against them under the end-justifies-the-means philosophyÃ ¤ (Carson, 1962, p.156). Therefore, unnecessary health risks and damage to the environment were considered acceptable in order to eliminate the gypsy moth, which has repeatedly been unsuccessful. One reason the gypsy moth still thrives is because, like many insects, they have developed resistance to the chemicals targeted against them.

The speech made by Marcus Antonius, called Antony, in Act Three, Scene Two of Julius Caesar shows that despite being considered a sportsman above all else, he is highly skilled with the art of oratory as well. In the play by William Shakespeare, this speech is made at the funeral of Caesar after he is killed by Brutus and the other conspirators. Brutus claimed earlier, in his own funeral speech, that the killing of Caesar was justified. He felt that Caesar was a threat, and too ambitious to be allowed as ruler. Much of this sentiment, however, was developed by the treacherous Cassius. Antony, on the other hand, felt that the conspirators were traitors to Rome and should be dealt with. This speech used a variety of methods to gradually bring the crowd to his side, yet maintain his side of the deal with Brutus. This deal was that he, Ã¢â¬Å"shall not in your funeral speech blame us...Ã¢â¬ (3.1.245) for the death of Caesar. Antony holds his end of the deal for the majority of the speech, yet by doing so convinces the crowd of Brutus' and the others' disloyalty. In many ways, this speech can be seen as the ultimate rhetoric, and it includes all three of Aristotle's methods of persuasion. This are the appeal to credibility, called ethos, the appeal to emotions, called pathos, and the appeal to logic, called logos. All three of these devices are used to great effect during the speech of Marcus Antonius. Antony begins with the now famous words, Ã¢â¬Å"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.Ã¢â¬ (3.2.62) In referring to the commoners as equals, they feel a sense of empathy even at the first line. This can be seen as a sort of ethos. He goes on to say that Brutus has said that Caesar was ambitious, and that this, if true, is a serious... ...2.248) Antony, though he kept to his bargain, brought the audience to his side in a variety of ways. He used all three methods of persuasion to his advantage. He claimed the killers of Caesar to be honorable and noble, and in the very act of doing so turned Brutus' followers against him. This shows the true ability of Marcus Antonius, and that he is a far greater threat than the conspirators recognized. This power of words is well known, and Aristotle's three methods of persuasion live on in modern speechwriters. Ethos, logos, and pathos are just as effective in our time as in that of Shakespeare, the Roman Empire, and wherever there are people to speak and people to listen. Thus even today, this speech of Shakespeare through Antony shows the sheer impact that mere words can have. Works Cited Shakespeare, William. Julius Caesar. New York: Simon, 1975.
