Article Review in Human Resource Management (Book Review Sample) Content: Name:Tutor:Course:Date:Article Review in Human Resource ManagementThe article in this paper is related to human resource, human resource management and strategic human resource management. The three concepts are related on the employeeÃ ¢Ã¢â ¬s behavior, their working equipment and environment in ensuring that the organization attains maximum performance. The authorÃ ¢Ã¢â ¬s arguments are clearly highlighted for the reader to find relative ease in understanding these concepts. The argument bases on new approaches of the concept of human resource management, human resource and strategic human resource management relative to the old times of managing organizations. The author focuses on a critical analysis of the above concepts in the era of change and uncertainty for the reader to be able to understand such changes. In relation to these concepts, the author has organized the arguments in such a way that the reader can easily point out the concept, follow the conc ept in relation to the recent changes on the concept as compared to the past happenings on the concept. Similarly, the author gives a comparison between the concepts in recent times and past time before making a conclusion on which argument best serves the concept. The reader can follow all this transition as the author progresses with the argument. Therefore, it shows the high level of organization that the author has employed in his or her artistic work that the reader is focusing on in this article.The original ideas of the author are presented in a systematic way to the reader. The author has sub-divided his or her paper into three sections. Each section has a sub-topic on which the author is focusing on in his or her argument. For example, the author starts by arguing about human resource, followed by human resource management and lastly, strategic human resource management. The author focuses on each of these sub-topics differently by exploring the key points of that he or sh e considers important for the reader to understand.The author has incorporated outside evidence in a number of ways. The author uses the outside evidence to support a specific point in his or her argument. For example, Ã ¢Ã¢â ¬ÃÅ"Ã ¢Ã¢â ¬this is the new normal, an era of constant turmoil and chaos increased.Ã ¢Ã¢â ¬ The author has used this outside evidence to support his or her specific argument in relation to his or her perception of the current world. Similarly, the author uses outside evidence to focus on the idea, which he offers an original critique (Sims, 67). For example, Ã ¢Ã¢â ¬ÃÅ"I noticed, looking at the literature, that this change in business mentality has occurred since the 1990Ã ¢Ã¢â ¬s, significantly increasing the role of human resources with the advent of the "new economy" (Porter, 1998). "New economy" has culminated in the development of important innovations, the most significant being computers and internet.Ã ¢Ã¢â ¬ In relation to this quota tion, the author has used the outside evidence to present an idea and then offer an original critique.In relation on how the author uses citation, quotation, paraphrasing and referencing, the author is not consistent on the proper format required for scholarly work. The author uses mixed citations, poor referencing styles, poor quotation styles and paraphrasing of original works while presenting his or her ideas. In the case of quotation, the author does not follow the proper use of quotation marks as he or she places them in the wrong place. For example, the author highlights "Ã ¢Ã¢â ¬human capital has replaced dollar capital as a strategic resourceÃ ¢Ã¢â ¬Ã . The author puts a full stop at the end of the quotation marks instead of putting the full stop first followed by the closing quotation marks. In ...

The American people were stationed in Vietnam because there was soon to be a communist takeover of the south. Being opposed on the ground by the Vietcong. The Viet Cong were a fighting unit that were notorious for winning drawn out battles, they would regularly set attacks on the Americans and would destroy American transport to further cripple the rate that the Americans could push through South Vietnam.

Jane EyreÃ¢â¬â¢s frigid and fiery motif The definition for a motif is essentially an important idea or subject that is repeated throughout a book (Merriam-Webster). A motif of fire and ice was present in this novel through a binary of love and hate. In Jane Eyre, written by Charlotte Bronte, binaries were created using different elements within the novel, symbolism, imagery, etc. While profoundly reading Jane Eyre, I tracked the image/motif of fire and ice. The fire and ice are used throughout the story to thoroughly develop a binary between love and hate. Fire was seen as warm, passionate and loving while ice seemed to be sharp, destructive, and bitter. Each element is associated with specific characters to show this contrast. For example, obviously Jane is represented with fire and Mrs. Reed is associated with ice. Even though fire is more destructive then ice, it serves a positive role in the book. Opposite to fire, ice serves a negative role in the novel. Fire is a symbol of emotion in the novel and is involved in deep moments of love and hate. There were various examples of Ã¢â¬ËfireÃ¢â¬â¢ that develop love and hate in the story. The two most important Ã¢â¬ËfiresÃ¢â¬â¢ in the novel are literal and both committed by Bertha Mason. The first act of arson occurs in Volume 1, Chapter 15 when Bertha sets RochesterÃ¢â¬â¢s clothes on fire. Ã¢â¬Å"Something creaked: it was a door ajar, and that door was Mr. RochesterÃ¢â¬â¢s, and the smoke rushed in a cloud from thenceÃ¢â¬ (148). Out of love, Jane doused her crush in

The Blackfeet reservation possesses some unique beauty but under it, there are valuable resources, like oil that is sealed inside the tight shale approximated to be thousands of feet under the ground (Healy). The exercise has split the tribe leading to emergence of a debate over the capacity and abilities of hydraulic fracturing and fracking. The debate comes as a result of ideological differences as many of the residents even view the land as sacred and symbol of life that should not be interfered with.Advertising We will write a custom essay sample on The Blackfeet Reservation Possesses Valuable Resources specifically for you for only $16.05 $11/page Learn More The group opposing the whole practice argues that the land acts as a tourist attraction site thus a source of foreign exchange and subsequently source of income to the government and the residents respectively (Rosier 56). They say their lifeline is dependent on the land. Contrary, those support ing the practice respond that since recession hits the globe, the number of tourists has significantly fallen thus the land has become more of a liability than the asset as it was before (Healy). On job creation, it is approximated that 49 job vacancies could be created in a single drilling rig (Rosier 56). The tribesÃ¢â¬â¢ men that support this move said that this was a method of wealth creation and that their land would soon be independent and stable thus being free from external intervention (Bryan 115). Economists in the region explain that the fracking process is very economical to the tribe compared to other methods but it is alleged that this will only be in the short run as the dangers in the long run will exceed the benefits (Okon 89). As the oil rigs were being constructed, others argued that the tribe was making an irreversible mistake that would in the long term come to haunt the whole community. Blackfeet tribalÃ¢â¬â¢s business council newly elected member, Cheryl L ittle Dog, was heard saying that the mountains belonged to the tribe as a whole and should not be ruined at the expense of oil rigs (Healy). Environmentalists within the area argue that if fracking operations are to continue, then everybody within and outside the region is going to suffer as the air will be continuously contaminated. Watersheds considered to be sensitive could also be contaminated in the process (Grinnell 118). Not only had the sacredness of the land that concerns the opposing side but also the acute consequences that are to be faced (Healy). They say that they have always faced terrific problems in the past but presently they have a chance of facing somehow the most intimidating challenge: an environmental degradation (Rosier 40).Advertising Looking for essay on environmental studies?

Experts demonstrate that not only is the process of fracking makes wells contaminated but also brings about house explosion. The opponents of the idea argue that even their animals are at risk. Fracking is also anticipated to cause earth movements like earthquakes, which have always been a great hazard worldwide (Okon 56). It is argued by some group of conservatives that fracking in the region is a result of selfish motives of a small group of people who are forcing their self-interests in the land to take charge instead of considering the general or public interest (Healy). Fracking leads to water wastages as observed within the region since a large quantity of water is usually injected in the ground. It is the same fluids that can spring back to the surface of the land and cause infertility of the land as some of the chemicals used are very dangerous (Healy). It is now upon the authorities to make verdict through weighi ng the diverse conflicting ideas of the occupants within the region so as to avoid regrets due to uninformed judgment.

The Old Man & The Sea essays The Bible, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Catcher in the Rye. All books. Old books that are still enjoyed by old and young readers alike. But what makes these books different from other books? Why are these classics and yet other books arent? Arent ALL old books classics? As we all know, and this paper will prove, is that not all old books are classics. There is a formula, or a blueprint that often can make the book great. The Old Man s known nothing in life other than fishing. And baseball. But theres more than that. Underlying topics, unanswered questions and a great struggle plague the reader as hes reading, and even after completing the book, leaving a sense of wonder much like other classics. First, we start with some undefined hints in the book. The novel uses its characters and events in a way that draws many comparisons to Jesus Christ. For example, if the fish was Jesus, it was consumed by the shark (death), but still his bones (the spirit or message of God) had a profound impact on the people who passed it and saw. Also, if the man is representing the worlds believers, and the fish is their faith and salvation, he should be wary of the evil of the world trying to take it away from him. Besides the obvious, more straightforward symbolism (the man carrying the beam, 3 days at sea, etc.), these demonstrate an aspect for the reader to ponder. Like this book, many classics have themes that are not as easily seen, like racism, religion, and capital punishment to name a few. These themes are often controversial, which is why these books are frequently challenged. Next are the unanswered questions. What happened to the boys family? Or Santiagos wife? What happens between the boy and Santiago at the end? Does Santiago adopt him? All of these are le...

Paper on Texas History and Culture - Essay Example Presently, Texas views the government as a force that benefits the whole state. Thus, the people of Texas engage in political activities with an aim of deciding the type of government that should govern their activities. Traditional culture of Texas views politics as a special preserve of social and economic elites Ã¢â¬â as a process of maintain law and order. Likewise, the present political system of Texas serves as a solution to the public problems. It views political participation as a privilege and accepts social pressure and restrictive election laws that limit participation. Critics believe that this culture stems from the traditional political culture (Maxwell, Crain & Santos 21). As evident in the past, political activities are a preserve of the rich or social elite. This tends to explain the dominance of the Republican Party in the Texas. Largely, the fact that the social elite dominate the political class makes the running in a political office an activity that a few people would like to perform. The settlement pattern of Texan people as well as the traditional attributes of the Texan people has continued to define the present political landscape of this state. In Texas, individualistic thoughts override traditional attributes. The result of this situation is evident in the political participation. Available literature indicates that voter turnout in Texas is lower than the National Average because Texan people believe that politics is a domain of economic interest, and many ignore the role of politic in their lives including its benefits (Maxwell, Crain & Santos 20). Despite the social and cultural extensions that have occurred due to civilization and modernity, black towns seems to exist alongside the white towns. This traditional and cultural aspect seems to define the participation in political issues by the residents of these towns. Elements of segregation still affect social, religious, fraternity
