1. There are already millions of undocumented workers in the U.S. Would you favor granting them amnesty since they are working or make them leave and file the proper forms and papers?
2. Do you believe the U.S. is doing enough to prevent undocumented workers from sneaking into the country?
3. Would you favor a cap on the number of immigrants entering the U.S. and why?
4. What do you think are some of the economic effects—positive and negative—of having so many immigrants living in the U.S.?
Now that I’m going to be graduating high school this year my concern for finding a job could be harder due to undocumented workers. Employers hire immigrants because they work longer hours for less money because they accept any offer as long as they get paid. I think that undocumented workers should leave and get their proper paperwork and forms filed in order to work in the United States. It’s not fair if someone comes to my country without permission and takes jobs that United States citizens should have the first opportunity too. I understand they have financial struggles in their own country but by coming to the U.S undocumented puts a strain on the United State’s economy and then slowly makes the U.S have financial struggles. America’s immigration system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers, and there are 12 million people living in the shadows. Neither is good for the economy or the country. President Obama is eager to work with both the House and the Senate on a comprehensive solution to immigration reform, similar to the bipartisan legislation that passed the Senate in 2013. Immigration isn’t is
the biggest problem in the U.S. in my eyes. The effort given by the president is enough in my opinion in preventing undocumented workers from sneaking into the country. The president took action to fix as much of the broken system as he could through his ...
Social media plays a significant role in ensuring that advertising is successful. Social media is made up of websites that enable users to create and share content with other users across the internet. In today’s world almost everything that takes place revolves around social media and as a result any new product, business or service being advertised is associated with social media in some way. According to some analysts, social media is “a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, and that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content” (Kaplan, p61). With the world growing to be more technological enhanced it shows that more customers and potential customers are becoming more dependent on social media when pursuing a product or service of interest.

Is cloud computing a new rage, just a fad, a nebulous idea or a far-reaching trend? Cloud computing has become a buzz word in working and learning environments around the globe. Newsstands and Internet pages everywhere are inundated with articles, whitepapers and websites dedicated to defining the many facets of cloud computing such as hosting a website on the cloud, building a cloud infrastructure, cloud security, vulnerabilities, capabilities, pros and cons and cost. IEEE.org (IEEE CLOUD COMPUTING) has dedicated pages on their website to reference nothing but articles of interest and white papers surrounding cloud computing. The barrage of information can be daunting. Jon Oltsik (Oltsik) eloquently discusses industries’ bewilderment with cloud computing when he writes:
When discussing cloud computing, I often think of Joni Mitchell's haunting lyrics from the song,Both Sides Now (jonimitchell.com). In Mitchell's world, clouds can be wonderful "ice cream castles in the air" or annoying disturbances that "only block the sun." This duality prompts Mitchell to declare, "It's clouds illusions I recall, I really don't know clouds at all."
Joni's cloud confusion mirrors current industry bewilderment over cloud computing. Like many other industry initiatives, cloud computing has a number of meanings.
Finally, industry confusion is no more. A guideline has been prepared by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)....
...Human Resources Department
The Human Resources Department deals with the employees and the people who make up the workforce in a business or firm. The Human resources Department is important because you need someone in charge of the population within and outside the business. If a company has too many workers they will have employees that have a lot of free time and are not working; therefore, the Human Resources department is there to fire the unnecessary employees that are not needed. The Human Resources department also hire new employees. They train them to do the necessary jobs needed to make sure they can perform efficiently and contribute to the business or firm in a good way. Human Resources department also deals with application forms if someone needs a job. If the company has little employees then they will have to overwork the employees in order to get the job done; this is the reason why we have the Human Resources department who can determine how many employees the company needs to hire or fire. The tasks that are performed in the human resource department are employee welfare and motivation, determining wages and salaries, job analysis and job description, Manpower Planning. Employees welfare and motivation are necessities because if the employees are not happy they will not work to the best of their ability; however, happy employees equals a healthy and successful organization because they will work hard to the best of their ability to get their specific...

Mrs Ann, aged 80 who was admitted into hospital for pneumonia,died of heart attack, after nurse poppy overdosed her with potassium chloride which was supposed to run over a course of five hours infused it in half an hour. This blunder was a result of nurse poppy not cross checking the drug with her colleague before infusion. For the drug itself is a control drug and should only be administered after two nurses has checked it in accordance to the hospital policy and procedure. During the hearing in court, the autopsy revealed the levels of potassium in Mrs Ann’s blood stream were above the normal average and no errors was made with the prescription or infusion pump but the court ruled out the cause of Mrs Ann’s death to be an “Individual human error”

The Michael Porter’s five forces model is something that five competitive forces model about each countries, particularly to the competitive advantages of countries, rather than to microeconomics. Grundy and Tony (1995) demonstrates that Michael Porter’s five forces can be seen as ‘When Michael Porter conceived the five competitive forces model, it propelled strategic management to the very heart of the management agenda.The framework became a centrepiece of texts on business strategy and strategic management, and essential examination material on MBA and similar courses globally. But what has become of his original five competitive forces? It would appear to be the case that not a great deal has occurred to develop this thinking since the early 1980s (except, perhaps, for Hamel and Prahalad, 1994).’ Grundy (2001) siad that ‘Porter appears to have been more interested in taking his concepts to an even more macro level, particularly to the competitive advantage of countries, rather than to micro economics. Porter’s model, whilst it has...
...Have you ever been curious about the relationship between critical thinking and ethics? In this essay you will explore what critical thinking is and the steps to it. What the Ethical Lens Inventory is and how ethics influences our decision-making and how it’s applied in our daily life.
In General Psychology one of the definitions of critical thinking is "Critical thinking examines assumptions, discerns hidden values, evaluates evidence, and assesses conclusions.” Critical thinking is used several times throughout the day in our lives. It helps us with our decision-making ability. There are six steps in the critical-thinking process: remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating. These six levels of thinking fall into three major categories, which include: checking your attitude, checking for logic, and checking the evidence. We have to remember when using our critical thinking skills to separate our opinion from facts to obtain accurate information.
After taking the Ethical Inventory Lens Assessment, I learned that my preferred lens is Rights - Responsibly and Results lens; which means, “I balance my reason and intuition skills to determine how to complete duties while achieving the best for each individual.” Additionally, I discovered my Blind Spot is “being satisfied with too little good. I can fail to be accountable to those who are depending upon me when I exercise free will. Once I satisfy my own needs, I can become...
...lead to diseases such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and so on. Hence, parents and ourselves should be self-organized, regulating healthy eating habits and having regular exercises. Be it just cycling or having a walk, getting at least an hour of moderate exercise a day would lessen our dependency on technology.
Undeniably, we are all embraced with the functionality and convenience of technology. However, we should bare it in mind that the technology or electronic gadgets are made for us, but not in the other way round. Prevention is always better than cure, we should all be aware of the adverse impact brought by the prolonged exposure to these gadgets. Technology is to make our lives better, not to worsen them.
