...(Michela K. Allen) DeVry University Professor Gredler 9/16/2013 America is a free country with a free will to do what we please. Although I love the idea of being in county that all free will, because there are other countries that have strict detrimental rules that does not allow the citizens to live freely; however each country have a culture full of beliefs that should be recognized by others cultures. In my own person opinion, each race should have a good idea of each other cultures, which in turn will create a positive level of respect. This restaurant evaluation was easy to select considering I’ve always wondered why Japanese and Chinese have become so Americanized. Chinese foods are not really recipes created from China it’s actually a combination of mistakes that started, from as early as 1882, when China immigrated over to the United States. The small numbers of people came from a rural area in china therefore the foods were similar to the living conditions poor. Thought-out the years many china men entered the United States illegally, bringing their food idea with them. The combination meals that we know as Tso’s General Chicken, Sweet and Sour Chicken , Fried rice are the fake food the real Chinese dishes. This meal were comprised based on the Americans taste, I happened to love Chinese foods; however it’s hard to gain the full appreciation because the lack of authentic appeal. Many of us don’t know why Buddha is represented in most restaurants...

...eventual win are not far away. Due to the nature of the show, humor is paramount to its success. The writers of the show, Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, use many different approaches. When a show has a womanizing character like Barney, there will always be inevitable sex jokes made throughout the episode. Other than being used for crass humor, Barney’s life, which is shrouded in mystery, has provided the show with endless laughs. One episode showed how one ex-girlfriend changed Barney from a hippie into a “suit.” Until meeting his true father in the sixth season, Barney believed that his father was TV’s own Bob Barker. Barney’s career is still a mystery. Even having worked with both Marshall and Ted when his firm has needed either legal or architectural advice, everyone has yet to figure out what his actual job is. The writers also use a tactic involving inside jokes; one of the shows trademark ideas, based on viewers’ investment in previous seasons. For example, in the second season episode “Slap Bet,” the gang dives into Robin’s past, looking to find out what she did in Canada. Barney believes that Robin was in an illicit video industry, while Marshall thinks that she was previously married. The two arrange a “slap bet,” in which the winner gets to slap the other participant in the face. While extremely juvenile, the concept has proved hilarious. At the end of the episode, viewers discover that Robin was not in an illicit industry or previously......

...that a delightful appetizer menu and all deserts made in house. However, with such amazing creativity, comes understandable limits. The entrée menu is usually bound to about 10 selections, not counting the specials. With no liquor license, patrons are encouraged to bring their own adult beverages. Depending on one’s point of view, BYOB can be either a positive or negative. The next criteria used for my evaluation was the atmosphere found at Serenity Café. As soon as you step inside the restaurant you cannot help but notice the relaxed atmosphere. It is not uncommon to see folks dressed in jeans and button-down shirts across from a table of diners attired in formal evening wear. Both of which is perfectly acceptable at this location. The front of the house is tastefully decorated with just the right amount of art and interesting items on the walls, with a warming paint scheme. But, to get a table at this place, one must secure a reservation in advance as there is seating for only about 90 persons. Finally, of course I had to consider price in the evaluation. The majority of the entrees are priced at $25 or less, with several items below $20, while most of the appetizers are $10 or less. Guests can save additional money by avoiding the normal grossly inflated wine list prices by bringing their own vino selections to the table. There is also a nice lunch menu offered with most items at or below $10. On the down side, there is the occasional $30 plus......

An effective process will provide the necessary needs for learning and improvements on how to be a manager. Wal-Mart training process provides opportunities for managers throughout their careers. The organization will first look at the reaction to do the process. Questions will be asked about how the process went and how the individuals feel about the training. Exploring females in management, it is important for the company to gather facts and get reactions on how the individual was treated and how the training process felt. “As an organization it is stated that the cost of employing women in management is far greater than the cost of employing men so it is important that the evaluation process is effective.”(Harvard Business Review, 2011) As an organization we will provide our managers with experiences involving walkthroughs to stores that they are familiar with to test effectiveness of the training. The organization will provide stores consistent with diversity so that a male or female will feel comfortable in their environment. The organization will also test some of the qualities learned in the training by putting individuals in hands on situation that involves what managers do every day in certain situations.

Analysis and Evaluation of the Legal Environment of Nigeria and Usa as It Relates to the Functions of Strategic Human Resource Management. decisions and actions that affect the relationship between the organisation and employees. John Storey (1987) believes that HRM can be regarded as a ‘set of interrelated policies with an ideological and philosophical underpinning’. He suggests four aspects that constitute the meaningful version of HRM: 1. a particular constellation of beliefs and assumptions; 2. a strategic thrust informing decisions about people management; 3. the central involvement of line managers; 4. Reliance upon a set of ‘levers’ to shape the employment relationship. In today's litigious workplace environment, being on top of legal issues that directly affect individual employees and organization is critical to the success of the HR profession. In this study, we will critically analyze and evaluate legal issues as it affects the functions of HRM in Nigeria and USA. LEGAL ISSUES AND HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN THE USA In the USA, some laws regulate various aspects of employee-employer relations. These laws, which are relatively stable, facilitate the work of HR managers. Examples are: 1. The Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1964 forbids discrimination in all areas of employment. The law is to ensure that employment decisions are made on the basis of an individual’s qualifications rather than on personal biases. Additionally, it frowns at discrimination on the basis of sex, race, colour, religion, or nationality in all areas of employment relationship. 2. Compensation and......

Legal Protection Provided Against Disability Discrimination — Evaluation of the Appropriateness of the Disability Anti-Discrimination Laws

...Legal Protection Provided against Disability Discrimination — Evaluation of the Appropriateness of the Disability Anti-discrimination Laws Name Institution Date Introduction The evolution of the world has been accompanied by a number of social developments. Some of these social developments have included equality policies, and as far as disability is concerned, this has been one of the critical areas of concern[1]. The concern has been extended in a number of areas, especially jurisprudence. The rationale is that people with disabilities have often been condemned to contend with discrimination, a social injustice. On the other hand, jurisprudence is as an avenue of guaranteeing justice for all. Various legal steps have been developed, including the formulation of laws. This paper seeks to examine the outright nature of these steps in taming disability discrimination. Disability anti-discrimination laws Central to the disability anti-discrimination legal steps are the legal stipulations underlying the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and bill of rights, which have often served as a framework for inequality policies. In particular, the universal Declaration of Human Rights is considered as a common standard for achieving social justice for all people across the world. What is well noticeable from all the articles in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the emphasis for treating every......
