Many people debate if professors should or shouldn’t be allowed to advocate their views own political or social issues in class. This is a debate that causes many issues but yet there hasn’t been any type of conclusion to if it is okay or not. I personally believe professors should not be allowed to advocate their views on political or social issues in the class because they can corrupt students’ minds and conflicts between professor, student and parents could form. First off, professors’ shouldn’t advocate their views on social or political issues in class because they can corrupt a student’s minds. When professors teach about a topic they then explain their own opinion after. Therefore, making the student believe there is only one way to support that issue because they aren’t getting both sides of the topics beliefs. Imagine that an instructors “freedom in the classroom” is merely the freedom to offer neutral summary of the current state of a discipline, abjuring controversial and individual views1. There is a difference between expressing ones freedom of speech and corrupting ones mind to have the same belief as you. Most professors have their mind set on a certain side of an issue around the world and when they believe in something it’s only obvious they will try to manipulate someone else to have that same opinion. For example, being a democratic or republican. Lets say a teacher is a democrat, he or she will then explain why being the democratic party is so great but will only bad mouth republicans if, he or she says one word about them. This is corrupting a student’s mind, students should be given pros and cons of both sides fairly so they can learn correctly and form their own true opinion. Also, conflicts between professor, student and parents could form. Some professors could judge or mistreat a student just one their opinion on something causing conflict. For example, when I was in the fifth grade this became a...

Pakistan’s economy is in a downward spiral. Inflation is at 25percent (food inflation 50%), foreign reserves are falling, and the government is in danger of defaulting on its foreign debt. A spike in global food prices has hit Pakistanis especially hard, and the global financial crisis only threatens to exacerbate Pakistan’s economic woes. Pakistan is watching foreign investors flee.
Weak governance has contributed to growing militancy in Pakistan, economic troubles, and regional instability. As in the past, the possibility remains that Pakistan’s military could conduct a coup if it perceives the government as inept. Or Pakistanis may rise up in protest due to the government’s inability to deal with economic issues.
Pakistan economy is under its terrible crisis due to following REASONS
One of the immediate causes is Political instability due to Musharaf’s position as president, delay in restoring judiciaryand resultantly withdrawal of PML (N) from the alliance leaving behind ‘dead’ ministry of finance.

...its 20,000-strong workforce have eroded the airline's competitiveness against the region's leaner and highly profitable low-
Malaysian Airline System Bhd. reported a net loss of 443 million ringgit ($139.5 million) in the first quarter, widening from a loss of 279 million in the same quarter last year. In 2013, the company reported a loss of 1.17 billion ringgit, its third consecutive year in the red.
At the end of the first quarter, the company had $1.06 billion in cash-on-hand and $3.7 billion in total debt, according to data from S&P Capital IQ. Total debt has more than doubled from $1.78 billion at the end of 2011.
If the company continues to incur losses, which is widely forecast, some analysts say they expect its current cash levels to allow the airline to run operations until the end of next year, before it would need to consider seeking a capital bailout from the state. With the downing of MH17, Malaysia Airlines has lost two planes in five months. The WSJ's Ramy Inocencio asks Vivian Lines, global vice chairman at Hill+Knowlton Strategies, if Malaysia Airlines can survive.
Malaysia Airlines' yields—how much money the carrier makes per passenger for each kilometer flown, and an important measure of profitability—were already falling after the first disaster, said Ian Douglas, senior lecturer of aviation at the University of New South Wales. If spooked passengers avoid the airline's flights, those yields could fall further.

Opening up for Innovation: In this principle collaboration and how the companies are adopting new approaches to innovation is mentioned. In todays world the pace of innovation and technological progress is such that the companies cannot solely rely on it’s employees. To compete with their peers, companies should get world’s best innovators into picture. This can be achieved by keeping their boundaries more porous, flexible and open. Creating an open platform brings the best outcomes.
However in order to make this possible, there should be a set of standards mentioned else the company might end up giving away its most priced possession, data. No other example other than Microsoft’s where kinect hardware issue can explain this.
Why sharing makes good Business Sense: This states that sharing of data can do more good than bad, which was a myth in the past. It has become very evident that a rigid approach of protecting intellectual property can sometimes cripple rather than enhance an organization’s ability to innovate and create value. This means that the companies place their intellectual assets in commons where more number of companies and individuals can use those assets to create more value.
While sharing data, not only with whom the data is being shared but also what data is being shared has to be taken care of. The best example to cite this is GSK Pharmaceuticals. How all the scientists came forward and collectively...
For quite a long time now an increased concern of wildlife has developed. This includes protection, conservation, global warming and the most important factor: our very own impact on the flora and fauna on this Earth.
After some steady research in the extinction and diseases of wildlife I have discovered there are a lot of problems, some are man-made but a lot are unknown or natural. Which is interesting in itself, does this mean that all wildlife will soon die off no matter how hard we try to maintain it? Or does it mean we are not doing our part as protectors of the wild? What does that even mean to be a protector of wild? Isn’t that contradicting the very concept of being “wild?”
The Grey/Gray American Wolf or common wolf is one of the largest members of the dog family. Surprisingly the Grey wolf is not actually grey; the coat can actually vary from shades of white to black. The Grey wolf looks similar to a domestic dog, with a strong body, a heavy head, wide temple and a very predominant jaw. The size of a wolf depends on the environment it resides in, Northern wolves are predominantly bigger. Wolves live in linked families which include the parents, their offspring and sometimes adoptee wolves. The way wolves communicate is by howling, whines, barks, growls, and even body posture. They only hunt things that are not considered food if it is seen as a major threat and prefer wild prey. Although the Grey wolf is...

Current Environmental Issues
With the world’s population steadily increasing, our environmental issues are steadily changing. With this increase we are experiencing a loss of natural resources. Our forests are being torn down to meet the needs of growing cities. The reason for this is more demands for paper, wood, or even new land. With the help from everyone hopefully we can increase the demand to plant new trees.
The environment is facing a crisis of all sorts of pollution: air, water, land, and noise. Climate change, ozone depletion, over consumption, radioactive waste, over population, sea level rising, illegal mining, habitat destruction, species extinction. These environmental issues bring problems not only to the condition of the environment but the health and lives of its inhabitants as well.
Land pollution and desertification, due to a decrease in vegetation has left the planet unsuitable for human use. A large scale of deforestation and other human activities are rising. We have been improperly using soil, and doing a lot of hazardous waste disposal. Instead of properly recycling our everyday household items, we are dumping them with our trash. With this over population, it is causing too much pollution.
Land pollution is in results to dumping waste and other...

...Current Ethical Issue in Business
Big Ben or Big Brother is an article that discusses a major aspect of today's ethical issues in the business world. This ethical issue has to do with invasion of privacy. Each year, the national members and affiliated organizations of Privacy International present the "Big Brother" awards to the government and private sector organizations which have done the most to threaten personal privacy in their countries. "Big Brother" awards are presented to the government agencies, companies and initiatives which have done most to invade personal privacy (Privacy International, n. d.). There are numerous amounts of countries that participate in the ceremonies for these awards, England being one of them.
In this article, the writer is discussing that the small town of Newham, England has more than 240 surveillance cameras; every where citizens look, someone has cameras trained on them, watching his or her every move. That is 240 cameras in Newham alone, in all Britain there are over a million cameras zooming in on the population. A person could be caught on film around 300 times by the time a person gets to where he is going and back home again. The article's author, Underhill (2000), states "the closed-circuit television system may be intrusivebut its record blunts any public outrage; Figures suggest that a network of cameras in a town center can reduce crime by 70 percent" (p. 29).
