...probable impact, and to ensure the survival and growth of the organization as it interacts with its dynamic environment (Phatak, Bhagat, and Kashlak, 2009). The host country in question here is Brazil with its booming economy and market for growth. Although, Brazil is known for its many negative connotations regarding bribery, corruption, and organized crime; the conditions in the labor market however remain favorable. Unemployment is at the lowest it has been in years and the middle class continues to grow. With the growing middle class comes demand for consumer goods, specifically in the fashion and retail departments. Inflation has remained under control with the adoption of an inflation targeting system in 1999 (Overseas Business Risk – Brail, 2012). The exchange rate continues to be an issue though with the Brazilian Real up to US$1:R$2.02. Regarding the crime issue in Brazil, the country is currently undergoing a dramatic change as the government continues to clean up the streets before the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016. As mentioned just a moment ago, the retail industry is growing as the demands of the middle class grow for high fashion. Retail executives should take advantage of this boom to establish exclusive clothing stores in Brazil. This will entail a labor intensive business which could prove even more profitable since labor is cheaper in Brazil. While the country does lack skilled labor, it is plentiful in those sectors that support the......

The Book of Eli Movie Review

...fight takes place under a highway overpass and the camera angle is from the side of the overpass. As the fight takes place in the shadows the only thing you can see is the silhouettes of the people, and fists, crowbars, and a chainsaw being flung around. Overall the producers couldn’t have put together a better scene to kick off the movie! Throughout the movie Eli is shown many times reading the Bible that he possesses. This is all foreshadowing for a big secret that is uncovered at the end of the movie. At the end of the movie we find out that Eli is indeed blind and was walking and making his way through the wasteland relying on nothing but his faith in God. The Bible that Eli has is written in brail as well. Eli was forced to give the Bible to Carnegie but since the book was in brail Carnegie was not able to read it. The reason Eli read the Bible day in and day out was so that if he did have to give the book up he would have it memorized in his head. In the end Eli and Solara make it to San Francisco where they find a safe stronghold on the island of Alcatraz, which is the place that God supposedly told Eli the Bible would be safe. Within the prison they find a group of people who have been securing and storing important documents, and artifacts that had been salvaged from the world before. Eli sits with the leader of the stronghold and he repeats the entire Bible word for word to the man where he is writing down what Eli says. Another copy was then made with a printing......

...question I come across is: Does this system work? My personal opinion is no way, it doesn’t work for a second. All students take the same test with the same rules as the rest of the students. They leave out the children with disabilities. This is where I believe that all students are left behind. The children with disabilities are basically shafted. As I was doing my research on this topic, I learned that children that are blind fail every time because the teachers cannot read the material for them. Now how is that fair for those kids, it’s not. This law expects a blind child to be able to read simple English because the tests are written in English only. They don’t change the language for any one not native to written English, let alone a brail version for vision impaired children. These children are put into a position where they cannot learn. Now I know why so many kids drop out of school. Over one million kids drop out a year; they give up, they quit. That really makes me wonder, what is my son with a learning disability really learning. Every school across the United States has to make adequate yearly progress (AYP). That is understandable to me; I can agree with that. What are the standards for the school to meet their AYP? Each state has a different test, from what I learned. The standards are set low for each state that has past problems with this standard test, and with low test scores in general. Okay, here is my example; I went to school in the Chicago......

...issue for the Figge is signage. This is a simple problem with an easy fix. For a visually impaired person it would be difficult to navigate the museum. Some of the signs have brail, but the majority do not. The elevator buttons have brail, so the visitor would know which level they are at, or are going to, but again once they are off the elevator there are problems. On the second level there are no signs in brail to lead the visitor. Not even the restroom sign utilizes brail. Once the visitor somehow manages to find the restroom, then there is brail. However, finding the restroom would be a challenge. Also, there are no signs that make the visitor aware of where certain exhibitions are located. A visually impaired visitor would find it difficult to locate an exhibition such as the College Invitational. Additionally, the exhibitions themselves do not have brail on their object labels. There should either be brail on the object labels or there should be an exhibition map available in brail. There is also an argument here for audio tours, which would be a beneficial tool for those who are visually impaired. This would allow people with visual impairments the opportunity to learn and experience the exhibition as everyone else does. There should also be exhibition tour guides available, not only in brail, but other common languages of the Quad Cities as well, such as Spanish. This would allow a greater number of people the opportunity to learn from the exhibitions.......

Building Teams and Resolving Conflict

...it’s not always a guarantee of values or thinking differently. In this day and age people are living in many countries and having to learn many different cultural trades. In this modern day and age we have become more culturally complex by adopting several cultures. Clearly ones age and physical make ups can help in the process of choosing teams like engineering which demand a lot of man power is a friendly environment type for all selections of people. In such a case like this constructing an ideal team these things should be taken into consideration, the gender, height, weight, age, sexual orientation and handicap. These would all be traits that would come in handy when designing a restroom and its accessibility whether it’s unisex, brail writing instructions or even if the paper towel dispenser are manual or automatic. Structuring the lifts and ramps for the company and mobility devices for the elderly would be created to fit the need if it was crafted by an individual that was physically challenged or if they were an senior citizen who were apart of the construction team. Now when combining member from diverse groups conflicts are going to began to arise, but however at this point it is the manager or team leader’s job to resolve the issue and keep productivity flowing. Within the group each team member should be able to address the floor and contribute their ideals so that the right plans and decisions might be made. The biggest thing for the team is going to be......

Book of Eli Film Review

...what he wants, which shows just how powerful the way something is said and the way the meaning is twisted can cause people to do things that they normally wouldn’t do. A final point that I found significant was the fact that when Carnegie finally got his hands on the bible, it was in brail and since he could not read it, it became useless. Carnegie’s wife was blind and could read it and realized that she did not have to tell him what the bible said, therefore Carnegie had no power whatsoever. This really stood out to me because it shows that you may have all of the information in the world right in front of your face, but if you cannot interpret it or comprehend it, it truly is useless. My interpretation of the film’s meaning is that the access of books and knowledge is really what has created our society today and without them, we would be absolutely no where. In the film, Carnegie is searching for the bible because he knows it has the power to control the people. Carnegie realizes that if he is the only one with the knowledge of the bible, everyone will listen to him. As I stated earlier, when Carnegie finally gets his hands on the bible, it is of no use to him because it is written in brail and he cannot interpret him. The town then rebels against him after realizing that there is no reason to have Carnegie over powering them because he is just like them. Obtaining knowledge plays such a crucial role in this film because it shows that you can be in complete control if......

Devices and Practices for Sensory Imparement

...materials to follow with when giving instructions (E. Keller, 2005). By using these tips and steps in the classroom, along with any hearing devices the child may have, the child will have a great chance at keeping up with classmates and gaining an education. Visual aids can help those children who have visual impairments such as blindness or vision loss. One example of a device created to facilitate those with blindness or vision loss is the Braille N’ Speak 2000. Braille N’ Speak 2000 is a portable device that includes a keyboard and speech synthesizing electronics that when something it typed into the device, the synthesizer will generate sounds and read what was entered (Universal Low Vision Aids Inc., 2009). Devices such as the Brail N’ Speak allow children who have visual impairments a way to learn more without having to see what is being portrayed or read the text on a page. A student can use this device to aid in his or her lessons, activities, and homework by ensuring that he or she has written what they intended. In addition to devices available to these students, some steps and techniques that can be implemented into the classroom consist of adding audio books, giving verbal instructions on all assignments, activities, and lesson, and having any text written in large print. By implementing these techniques, the students with these challenges will be given more opportunities to learn and strive in their education. With all the technological......

Making a web site that you have into a web accessible web site can be easy and it can also be more challenging depending on many different factors. When a web site is being developed or a web site is being redesigned, evaluating early and throughout the development process can solve problems before they happen. Simple things can be done such as changing settings in a browser can determine is the site meets all the accessibility guidelines (W3C 2011). Some examples of web accessibility include audio playback for individuals with hearing issues, large font for seeing issues, brail making software for the blind, as well as many others. There are certain standards that need to be followed for web accessible web sites. There are three main situations that developers need to consider. Accessible design choice such as style sheets to control font, accessibility issues such as what problems can arise, and the text of the web site. Web accessibility makes it much easier for individuals with disabilities to do everything on the web as a person without a disability.

A Day Spent Without

...readingA day spent without reading what? And a day wasted for whom? And if a day spent without reading SOMETHING is wasted for SOMEONE, then how does reading turn a wasted day into a useful and fruitful one? Without answering these questions, the topic statement seems very harsh and one sided. Reading can be associated with books, newspapers, self-written work, brail, musical notation, expressions, text messages, information on a computer, on websites, electronic books, and essays. Reading can also be divided into even smaller categories, such as reading advertisements, notes, memos, names, dates, and so on. In a nutshell, reading is about everything that is written down by any means of writing, whether it is electronic, handwritten, or digital. So taking this definition of “reading” into account, a day spent without reading will be useless. How can someone spend a day without reading anything? It is possible if the person is illiterate and cannot read, or if he’s blind, but then it is not his/her fault and the person’s day will not be considered as wasted, because they can still indulge in other activities. But if a completely normal, educated person decides to spend one day without reading anything…it will be impossible, and if somehow he/she succeeds to avoid every form of writing, then yes, their day will be wasted. Now keeping in mind an illiterate individual who cannot read, then would it plausible to conclude that every single day of his life has been a waste because...

...understood by people that know what you are signing. The weaknesses are that if you are in a dark room the signs might not be able to be read and understood, also when trying to sign something that has different meaning it can be hard for the receiver to know what you mean. Symbols can be used to communicate with someone who doesn’t understand sign language or brail which has a hearing impairment. Symbols can be used to ask someone how they are and if they need anything. It is also a good communication for someone who doesn’t know how to sign but needs to speak to someone who has a hearing impairment or for someone who doesn’t speak the same language. Symbols strengths and weaknesses the strengths of symbols are that hay can easily be understood and you can get answers back. The weaknesses are that that some symbols can have different meaning to different people, when someone speaks a different language and is using symbols as communication they can me misunderstood due to different meanings. Touch is a form of communication as someone who is blind can read by running their fingers over raised dots, this is called brail.

Communication Collaboration Reflection

...form of communication, the music is telling you what has happened to the person but the video become a form of non-verbal communication, the way the characters interact or even sit alone in a room shows the emotions and gives the watcher an idea of how they should feel about the situation. Writers often express emotions and situations differently, they can make your imagination form a scene or character just by the details that are provided in the words that are written. This also becomes both verbal and non-verbal communication. As a reader you are taking the words that are in front of you and processing them into a picture that the writer wants you to see. Some communication is a larger bridge to cover, such as sign language and brail. For the hearing impaired or blind this gap is something that, for them, is a way of life and has to be adapted to quickly so that they can function in a normal society. Sign language has become more universal in its understanding than almost any other language on the planet, words and phrases are represented by hand motions that some who doesn’t speak the same language will be able to understand and comprehend what the other person is referencing. Although basic spellings and letters are different, the way they are presented becomes more common. Being able to see the body language or facial expressions of the person you are communicating with is a key element of how the conversation is going or can go. If that person is......

...although they still should. The reason for this is it might be too expensive to but in a ramp or elevator in a small business to accommodate one person. Covered entities are required to provide reasonable accommodations to job applicants and employees with disabilities. A reasonable accommodation is a change in the way things are typically done that the person needs because of a disability, and can include, among other things, special equipment that allows the person to perform the job, scheduling changes, and changes to the way work assignments are chosen or communicated. Some ADA requirements of employers are ramps, elevators, and open space for those in a wheelchair maybe. Also handicap bathroom stalls and parking spots for easier access. Brail and crosswalks for those who are visually impaired. When an employer sends out a job description, they must keep in mind all these accommodations to fit everyone’s needs. Also listed are BFOQ’s, Bona fide Occupational Qualifications. For example if you are applying for a life guard position you must be able to swim, or a pilot must retire at 65 due to poor eye sight, it’s necessary.

Brail Studies

...Brazil Studies: Brazil socio-cultural factors and Cross-cultural issues By: Lawanda Timmons Date: January 31, 2015 Instructor: Minsky TROY Managing in a Global Environment MGT-4478 Introduction I am pleased our company decided to expand the W Hotel to Brazil. Brazil is a great place to start a new service business at, especially a hotel. Brazil is a place where the culture believes in diversity. Also they consider themselves to be Americans as well. Therefore they do not mind using U.S products or services. They are a people that believe in family and that family is a key part to life. Brazil is a place that is filled with variety and is not afraid to allow new cultures to their part of the world. Cultural Analysis In Brazil, the primary language is Portuguese. It was the Brazilians’ first language, but over time immigrants such as Italians, Germans, Japanese, and Spanish-speaking introduced new words and expression to their language. It is much easier for some Brazilians to understand Spanish language than other Latin American countries. The Portuguese they speak in Brazil is different from what they speak in Portugal. The language is so different. It’s just like the English spoken in the United States. However, in Brazil there are many customs. In fact, their daily communication style of Brazilian locals is typically relaxed and relatively informal. It is not unusual during a conversation to be interrupted. Although it’s not rude......

Is Literature a More Reliable Way of Finding Truth Than Other Arts?

...else’s. This means that the truth through the art is different than the truth in expression of another’s art work. One way of looking at this is that the ultimate truth can then be controversial if everyone has a different view of it. On the other hand, a person can look at this as that there is no ultimate truth and every piece of art can tell the truth for someone. For example, using the dyslexic and blind idea, they can both receive the same truth from different forms of art. Since a dyslexic person cannot read literature such as The Odyssey. However, they can see the story and possibly find the truth in art work that depicts The Odyssey. The art work can tell the story of The Odyssey using pictures. A blind person who reads brail can read The Odyssey in brail and still receive the same message as a person who is not blind. In prehistoric times people did not have formal writing. They used cave art as a way to communicate and record events. Historians use cave art to learn about prehistoric cultures. It is a way of learning the truth about the way prehistoric peoples lived, hunted, and entertained themselves. It is just as valid to use cave art as a way of learning as it is to use past literature such as Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe to learn about slavery and life during the civil war. Uncle Tom’s Cabin may be fiction but it tells the truth about anti-slavery during the Civil War in America. It is a view of American culture and history. Both cave art and......
