Three Issues Confronting the Intelligence Community
In the past decade, the United States has witnessed a shift in the nature of the threat from “known” enemies of the past such as the Soviet Union to an “unknown” adversary employing an asymmetric strategy as they wage fourth generation warfare against any nation who opposes their will. This new threat paradigm presents a complex environment with emerging threats that are difficult to predict. In order to identify the threat, the intelligence community has developed indicators that provide warning of the possible attack. I believe that the three significant issues confronting the intelligence community is the threat posed by terrorists, illicit drug trade, and computer network warfare. The world’s communities have become victim to terrorist attacks stemming from violent Islamic extremist ideology. The detrimental effects from these adversaries are felt throughout the various nations from the United States to Russia. Terrorist attacks such as the 9/11 World Trade bombings, Beslan School Crisis, 7/7 London Bombings, and 2004 Madrid Train bombings are examples of the far-reaching nature of Islamic terrorists and the threat that they pose to the civilized societies of the world. Therefore, in the future this common enemy will require greater cooperation in order to identify and interdict these emergent threats and prevent the potential destabilization of establishment governments and further proliferation of extremist ideologies. The drug trade is a contributing factor to the funding of terrorism and organized criminal organizations that threaten the fabric of society and advances the condition of failing or failed nations such as Mexico, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, and Burma. The lure of huge profits, poor economy, and poverty combined with the unrelenting demand continue to exacerbate the problem caused by drug trafficking organizations and their facilitators. This lucrative business has threatened to...
The Three Legal & Ethical Issues in Business in Bangladesh
Business ethics has both normative and descriptive dimensions. As a corporate practice and a career specialization, the field is primarily normative. Academics attempting to understand business behavior employ descriptive methods. The range and quantity of business ethical issues reflects the interaction of profit-maximizing behavior with non-economic concerns. Interest in business ethics accelerated dramatically during the 1980s and 1990s, both within major corporations and within academia. For example, today most major corporations promote their commitment to non-economic values under headings such as ethics codes and social responsibility charters. Governments use laws and regulations to point business behavior in what they perceive to be beneficial directions. Ethics implicitly regulates areas and details of behavior that lie beyond governmental control. The emergence of large corporations with limited relationships and sensitivity to the communities in which they operate accelerated the development of formal ethics regimes.
Ethical issues is pertaining to or dealing with morals or the principles of morality; ethical is pertaining to right and wrong in conduct, involving or expressing moral approval, in accordance with principles of conduct that are considered correct, especially those of a given profession or group. Business ethics are...
...theoretical framework can assist in the achievement of organizational goals.
One of the main goals of organizational theorists is, according to Simms (1994) "to revitalize organizational theory and develop a better conceptualization of organizational life."An organizational theorist should carefully consider levels assumptions being made in theory, and is concerned to help managers and administrators. Organizational behavior is a growing field. Organizational studies departments generally form part of business school. Organizational behavior is becoming more important in the global economy as people with diverse backgrounds and cultural values must work together effectively and efficiently.
My task is to pick threeissues and talk discuss about them so:
The three basic issues that I have chosen for the report is Attitude, Job Satisfaction and Leadership all of the above are important parts of organizational behavior.
What is attitude?
Attitude which we can basically say is a statement or judgment concerning objectives, people, or events. We can also say attitude can be defined as a positive or negative evaluation of people, objects, event, activities, ideas, or just about anything in your environment, but there is debate about precise definitions. Eagly and Chaiken, for example, define an attitude "a psychological tendency that is expressed by evaluating a particular entity with some degree of favor or...

Top threeissues of the United State
United States is still a relatively young nations compare to many other countries. Although, U.S. has been the world dominant figure in military for the past 20 or more years, It still have many things that need to improve; such as, illegal immigrants, credit crisis, and problems with court delay. However, it is very hard for United States to solve these problems, because United States is a country with freedom, hope, and restart for the new life. All of the United States structures and systems are build base on the idea of democracy. Without the idea of democracy, United States will not exist, and become the most powerful nation around the world.
One of the most important issues that United States has is the Immigration problem. The number of illegal immigrant has increase by a significant amount within the last 50 years. Illegal immigrants have found many ways to sneak in the U.S. border. It makes very difficult for U.S. to set a barrier to prevent the illegal immigrant keep on across the U.S. border. Those immigrants can sneak in the U.S. border by fishing boats, Air planes, and by using the weak defensive line between the U.S. and Mexico border. Among of those strategies, the weak defensive line between the U.S. and Mexico border has been a most common way use by Mexicans. It is a cheapest way for them, because with...
Social issuesconfronting the AIDS/HIV population.
Team A- 10/19/2010
AIDS stands from acquired immune deficiency syndrome. AIDS is called by a virus called HIV that is the human immunodeficiency virus. If one were to be infected with HIV their body naturally will try to fight the infection by making special molecules called “antibodies.” A blood test for HIV looks for these antibodies and if one had them in their blood that would make them positive for the HIV infection.
HIV positive is different than AIDS. HIV will wear down your immune system slowly as viruses, parasite, bacteria, and fungi can easily make you sick since your immune system is damaged. Most people with the HIV virus get infected by having intercourse with an infected person, sharing needles with someone who has the virus, or by being born by a mother who was infected or drinking breast milk from an infected woman.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 1 to 1.2 million residents of the United States are living with the HIV infection or AIDS. Out of this population, a quarter of them do not know that they have it and about 75 percent of 40,000 new infection each year are in males while about 25 percent are in females. In the mid 1990s, the leading cause of death was by AIDS. But as technology grew so did newer treatments which cut the death rate for AIDS by a significant amount. A lot of people do not know they...

Since the start of tracking the ice melt in the Arctic sea since 1979, it has been confirmed that the ice has melted to the lowest extent ever reported. Before the year 2050, many experts believe the arctic will be completely free of sea ice, so experts even think it will be gone before 2020. "While we’ve long known that as the planet warms up, changes would be seen first and be most pronounced in the Arctic, few of us were prepared for how rapidly the changes would actually occur," (Llanos). The difference between this year's low and that of 2007 is 293,000 square miles which equals out to be the same size of Texas. “In the 1980s summer sea ice would cover an area slightly smaller than the Lower 48 states. Now it is about half that,” (Associated Press).
On September 16th, 2012 experts estimated that the minimum extent for the ice melt was 1.32 million square miles, or 24 percent of the Arctic Ocean. “As the summer ends and the long Arctic winter commences, the sea ice will reform, but every major melt season like this one flushes out more of the old, thick multi-year ice, replacing it with thin layers that will melt that much more easily next summer,” (Time). If in fact this is true, it will continue a long-term melting trend that dates back to 1979. The ice also appears to be getting thinner and weaker as well. “There is plentiful data to suggest that the ice is...
23. Governments should place few, if any, restrictions on scientific research and development.
Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position.
Scientific research and development is one of the most important issues in our society. A good development on the science aspects would beneficial to the living conditions of humans. The speaker recommends government should place few restrictions on the research and development of science aspect. I concede that restrictions would undermine the development of sciences and human being. However, in some conditions, when the scientific research is foreseeable to damage the world or deteriorate the social stability, government should place suitable restrictions on it.
Admittedly, in most of the extent, scientific research is beneficial to the society. As scientific research and development are coming from the innovation, the restrictions of the research would constrict the crea tivity and innovative of the scientific development. For instance, Kuen Kao, the Father of Fiber Optics, has invented the fiber optics which applies in the telecommunication technology and the computer networking. His...

Although the effects of crime are experienced and felt in the local level, an abundance of crime is coordinated and ran internationally. This paper discusses these crimes,issues related to them, and what the criminal justice systems are doing. These international crimes are as follows. Crimes exist all over the world. The justice system department usually have the records for criminal activities in every country. There are many global crime issues and criminal justice systems are working to combat them.
One popular international crime is terrorism. Terrorism is the unlawful use of violence by an organized group or a person against people or property deliberately to coerce or intimidate a government or a society often for political or ideological reasons. Terrorists use kidnapping and bombing of places to intimidate or bully a target. Terrorist attacks on targets have their bases on political, ethnic, or religious issues that these organized groups oppose.
The second criminal issue experienced internationally is drug trafficking. It is the illicit trade involving growing,...
