Taking Good Care of
Our Habit Energies
Dear friends, welcome to the Summer Opening in Plum
Village. Who is three years old? Who is less than three years old? I would like to introduce to you Bao-tich who is four years old. He just celebrated his birthday two days ago. Here is Bao-tich. This is his second year in
Plum Village to practice. Can you turn around? He came last year and he practiced very well. He was so happy, so this year he came again. Bao-tich is his name. It means the store of jewels. I am very happy that he is here. He has a great time being in Plum Village. He came about ten days ago and I had the opportunity to drink tea with him and to play with him. I am very happy when I am surrounded by young people. They look like flowers to me, very fresh, very innocent, and I wish that the young people will stay with us for the whole retreat,…...

...deviant salaries, FastCat should instate adjustments, followed by a total compensation package implementation. These decisions should yield the lowest voluntary turnover. Red and Green Circle Employees According to our initial grades and ranges, some employees needed to be adjusted (Appendix 3.1). Green circle employees were adjusted to the appropriate grade were kept at the same pay as long as they were within range; if employees were not in range, then the individuals performance was evaluated and pay changes were made accordingly with higher, more valuable, long term performers receiving a higher increase. Our green circle employees deviated from our expected structure and JE points needed to be adjusted. For example, Senior Fellow, one of FastCat’s most vital positions, was only valued at 285 initially; the position has been adjusted to 420 to reflect its importance and correct the implied deviant salary. Individuals with positions that are highly valued at FastCat need to be rewarded (Appendix 3.1.1). Individuals in this position operate with the economic theory in mind and are expected to be the leaders and their decisions perpetuate FastCat’s success. Red circle employees’ salaries were lowered accordingly. Upon evaluating the jobs, some were trivial; these positions have had salary deductions. For example, jobs that required only a high school diploma or an associate degree were being paid above the industry standard. More extensive cuts were made for......

One Genre Fits All?

...One genre fits all? Whether you prefer a romance, an action or a thriller, Science Fiction seems to fit it all in but still have its own unique identity. Is this why it appeals to so many? As Reported By ReJohnson. Looking around at movie advertisements shown on billboards, bus stands and television, it’s hard to miss the growing popularity of science fiction movies and books in modern society. Though still not as popular as genres such as Action and romance, many people have found an interest and love for science fiction. Over the past decade, there have been over 300 Science Fiction movies released. Statistics show that 5 in every 10 movies released in today’s society is science fiction. Many of them hitting the top ten list and have been nominated or have won major awards (e.g. Avatar which won 3 Oscars, the Golden Globe etc.). So why does it appeal to modern day audiences? It seems that in modern society, no matter how you look at it, Science fiction is a genre that can appeal to each individuals taste making it appealing to almost anyone. Though it is mainly based around an imagined future and scientific and technological advances, directors and producers have created a scale as to how ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ the science fiction movie is. While Hard Science Fiction focuses mostly on the speculation of the future as seen in the award- winning Matrix, Soft science Fiction focuses more on the entertainment of the audience and allowing them to escape from reality as seen in......

Compensation - Does One Size Fit All?

...| Compensation Does one size fit all? Compensation Does one size fit all? Due date: 6 November 2013 Leadership & People: Tutor: XXX Prepared by: Stephanie Gartrell Student ID: XXX Due date: 6 November 2013 Leadership & People: Tutor: XXX Prepared by: Stephanie Gartrell Student ID: XXX Executive Summary Designing and implementing a compensation package that rewards all staff according to performance, and succeeds in appealing to their individual motivations is an enormous challenge for any organisation. Some find it easier to simply pay a percentage increase to all staff, irrespective of their performance. A literature review was undertaken to determine both the current and historical views of performance management. A vast amount of material has been written in journal articles and textbooks. All point to the complexity of the issue and the apparent inability to find a solution that will suit all. For the last 100 years, HR specialists, psychologists and economists have been collaborating to try and develop a system which would have broad appeal for both staff and employers. Many theorists contributed to the discussions, asserting that individual motivations for pay were based on the theory of agency, goal, control, expectancy, or reinforcement. Performance management systems are necessary to enable companies to enable them to attract, retain......

Multicultural vs One Size Fits All

...campaign for a new product. As said in the Journal of Consumer Marketing, “Products considered to be legitimate when targeting one group, may not be perceived as being socially responsible when targeting other sensitive groups” (Macchiette & Roy, 1995). For example, animal fur is considered a sign of wealth in some cultures, but will result in a negative opinion from other consumers such as animal activists. Marketers who do not consider all cultures and beliefs when developing a promotion will provoke boycotting of products and ethnical controversy among consumers, which in turn will result in a negative public image for the brand. Attaining appropriate research and understanding all diverse ethnic groups prior to promotion will protect a brand’s equity and alleviate the possibility of becoming a boycotted or “damned brand” (Macchiette & Roy, 1995). Marketers who have extensive knowledge of the multicultural society will also build better relationships with consumers. “Knowing more about your customers and how to communicate with them in culturally appropriate ways with regional and even neighborhood nuances can make a big difference” (Rogers, 2013). Using data research, marketers are able to analyze consumers’ wants and needs right down to the household level, allowing brands to customize products for specific target groups. For example, one study has shown that Hispanics are more inclined to use fragrances in their homes. As a result to this research, Proctor and......

The One Is One

...An essay has been defined in a variety of ways. One definition is a "prose composition with a focused subject of discussion" or a "long, systematic discourse".[1] It is difficult to define the genre into which essays fall. Aldous Huxley, a leading essayist, gives guidance on the subject.[2] He notes that "the essay is a literary device for saying almost everything about almost anything", and adds that "by tradition, almost by definition, the essay is a short piece". Furthermore, Huxley argues that "essays belong to a literary species whose extreme variability can be studied most effectively within a three-poled frame of reference". These three poles (or worlds in which the essay may exist) are: The personal and the autobiographical: The essayists that feel most comfortable in this pole "write fragments of reflective autobiography and look at the world through the keyhole of anecdote and description". The objective, the factual, and the concrete-particular: The essayists that write from this pole "do not speak directly of themselves, but turn their attention outward to some literary or scientific or political theme. Their art consists on setting forth, passing judgement upon, and drawing general conclusions from the relevant data". The abstract-universal: In this pole "we find those essayists who do their work in the world of high abstractions", who are never personal and who seldom mention the particular facts of experience. Huxley adds that "the most......

Since the 19th century Singapore has been fully reliant on the import of foodstuffs, obtained from its neighbours. We thus plan to buy our raw materials from local wholesalers. ii. ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT The World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index ranks Singapore as the easiest and most conducive environment to establish and run a business. The index takes into consideration several parameters based on environments. Singapore’s economy is one of the most developed economies in not only Asia but the world. It is a state capitalist mixed economy; however it is one of the freest markets in the world. It is also an economy that has had a consistent growth graph in the recent years. Its economic indicators are very encouraging. ! GDP of 251.5 billion US dollars ! GDP absolute growth 17.9% (2010 est) in terms of Purchasing Power Parity ! Per capita 62100 US dollars, one of the highest in the world ! Poverty – Negligible ! Inflation 2.8 ! Unemployment- 2.1% The main contributors to GDP are the services (73.2%), while Industry makes up the rest (26.8%). Industry growth rate was 26.8% in the last quarter. Retail sales grew by 10.2% in Q2 2011. Food and beverage sales went up in June 2010 and is only projected to grow; a trend that is encouraging for Natural Ice Cream.

Is There a One Size Fits All Approach to Dealing with Volcanic Hazards? 10 Marks

...flows and ash/tephra cloud as these are unpredictable in their spread apart from when previous eruptions indicate where a pyroclastic flow may be directed. To deal with these types of immediate hazards, there must be quick response to areas affected to try and help those affected. In an ideal world, there could be a ‘one size fits all’ approach to post-eruption impacts but this is not possible as LEDCs on the whole do not have the money or resources to create such a fast reaction service. For example the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991, the locals were notified of the eruption due to the fact there were 2 US military bases in the vicinity. If it were not the case, it is probable that the LEDC government would not have been able to prepare and respond as effectively. All volcanic eruptions are not the same however as is shown on the volcanic explosivity index as different volcanoes display different types of eruption. These vary massively from heavily magmatic to mainly ash and dry tephra. This makes it difficult to produce one plan to deal with all volcanic hazards. No 2 eruptions will be identical even from the same volcano and so creating a one size fits all model for dealing with volcanic hazards produced by eruptions....

The American Capitalist System: All for One or One for All?

...The American Capitalist System: All for One or One for All? The American capitalist system goes to show that you can be successful, if you’re wise enough to manipulate the system. Once this condition exists, the freedom to choose a profession and the freedom to determine socio-economic class exist. Workers’ wages are too low to support the average middle class family, the minimum wage being approximately 7 dollars and change in New Jersey. In addition, corporations ultimately force workers to veer towards giving more money in order to supply for public assistance programs, like Medicaid and food stamps, thereby increasing personal profit since the company is then dependent on the public and outside resources. Also, with intense costs of living, any freedom to determine socio-economic class is slowly brought down. Although capitalism paves the path for a freedom to choose the way in which money is earned, the money-sucking policies associated with it prove to hurt the majority of Americans in today’s society. On paper, the American capitalist system does allow for an independently chosen career, however, is this system as ideal as it seems? Although the freedom to choose one’s method of income exists, many people in the middle class are still limited to few options when it comes to jobs. These limitations may be due to lack of a college degree, or it may be a result of a lack of job availability. On the educational side of job searching, it is a fact that the higher paying......
