Box: 2.1 Export Target and Achievement during the last five years The Government had initially set an export target of US $ 200 billion for 2008-09, which was later revised downward to US $ 175 billion because of global slowdown in the second half of the year.

...Recent trends in information system Introduction The advancement of technologies in business is changing the world of work. Businesses find they must incorporate many of the new technological procedures, processes, policies, hardware, and software into their environment to remain competitive. The impact from these technological advances on how work is performed affects the workforce far differently now than what has been seen over the past 25 years. One of the greatest impacts has been on the workers themselves, and the challenge of training and preparing to remain abreast in today’s workforce is tremendous. This challenge, which is facing today’s workers, is something educators cannot afford to ignore. Technology has created a revolution in today’s educational environment, and this change in education makes teaching more rewarding and far more challenging (Bryant, 2001).

...• Skip to Navigation • Skip to Content Recent Trends in Viral Marketing In: Business and Management Recent Trends in Viral Marketing RECENT TRENDS IN VIRAL MARKETING *Ritu ABSTRACT 2010 looks to be the biggest year ever for online marketing. With more and more marketers demanding results-based advertising, it is no wonder viral marketing is becoming one of the fastest-growing trends. Nothing captures the essence of viral marketing better than the description of how a virus grows. It is uncanny in its ability to remain shrouded in secrecy till it wins by sheer weight of numbers. It piggybacks on other hosts, and grows by feeding on their resources, not its own. It doesn’t need to mate- it replicates itself. And with the right kind of environment, it can grow exponentially, as can be seen by the 1’s above. Viral Marketing, naturally, is something that draws upon these fundamental characteristics of a virus- exponential growth with minimum use of one’s own resources. It refers to any strategy that encourages individuals to pass on a ‘message’ to other individuals, who in turn pass it on to other people, and so on and so forth, thereby allowing for an exponential growth in the popularity and exposure of the message. This paper examines as to how viral marketing can make a brand name stand out from the competition and some strategies important   to make   viral marketing campaigns unique .

The Trends

...Trends Shaping Tomorrow’s World By Marvin J. Cetron and Owen Davies Forces in the Natural and Institutional Environments Introduction For nearly half a century, Forecasting International has been tracking the forces that shape our future. Some 20 years ago, we codified our observations into a list of trends that forms the basis for much of our work. For each of our projects, we compare the specific circumstances of an industry or organization with these general trends and project their interactions. This often allows us to form a remarkably detailed picture of what lies ahead. This is Part Two of FI’s periodic trend report. It covers trends in energy, the environment, technology, management and institutions, and terrorism. (Part One, published in the May-June 2010 issue of THE FUTURIST, tracked economic, population, societal, family, and work trends.) Because this forecast project is ongoing, the authors — and the World Future Society — welcome your feedback. 38 THE FUTURIST July-August 2010 © 2010 World Future Society • 7910 Woodmont Avenue, Suite 450, Bethesda, MD 20814, U.S.A. • All rights reserved.

If you Google ‘coin landing on its edge’ you will find that the chance of this happening is thought to be about 1 in 6000 (but we don’t really know!): so the true probabilities of ‘head’ and ‘tail’ are around 0.4999166 and of‘ edge’ around 0.000166667.

Recent Trends in Recruiting

...Recent Trends in Recruiting We are in an era of transformation. The sink or swim approach to new hire management is rapidly turning obsolete as organizations find themselves time and time again having to pick through the ruins of a mismanaged good hire. The competition for top candidates is stiff and recruitment processes are getting advanced gradually. This is due to the high demand for temporary employment, thus increasing the volatility of labor force and raising the need for qualified labor. A few things are essential to successful talent acquisition pipeline development and sustainability: * Employers, recruiters, and hiring managers must know and understand their organization’s short-term and long-term hiring needs and the positions * in order to source and develop effective candidate pools. * They must be using internal and external resources to develop the most diversified and qualified pipelines. * Their talent acquisition program must be able to measure pipeline strengths and weaknesses. They must maintain engagement and interaction with candidates. Internal Talent Advocates An emerging talent acquisition trend going into 2014 is focusing on internal candidates, especially top performers, to improve performance and retention. Major companies like Time Warner Cable are making internal talent a focus of their talent acquisition function. Time Warner has an internal talent advocates program to engage internal candidates and let them......

Recent Trends in Accounting

...on the Topic Accounting for acquisitions and mergers has long been a controversial area of accounting. In particular there have been disputes about whether the technique of merger accounting should be permitted, and about the nature and accounting treatment of goodwill. The current UK rules are found in FRS 6 ‘Accounting for acquisitions and mergers’, FRS 7 ‘Fair values in acquisition accounting’ and FRS 10 ‘Accounting for goodwill and intangibles’. Recent changes in US accounting rules in this area have led to changes to IFRS (IFRS 3 ‘Business combinations’ was published in March 2004). Equivalent changes are likely to be made to UK standards, though the timescale for this is not clear. UK law sets out some details about acquisition and merger accounting. My aim in this paper is to draw attention to several discouraging trends in US accounting education and research, and to raise the spectre of similar trends occurring in the World. Recent developments in the World which portend the possible importation of these trends are the following: 1. Concern among leaders of the accounting profession over the effec tiveness of the standard-setting process, including such considerations as the rate of productivity of standards and the means of securing a greater degree of compliance on the part of companies ('Dearing to Head ASC Review Body', 1987). 2.

Examine Recent Trends in Gender and Attainment

...these traits and skills are the result of early gender role socialisation in the family. For example, girls are more likely than boys to be encouraged to be neat, patient and tidy. These abilities are an advantage in today’s education system, helping girls achieves greater success than boys. However, there are other views on GCSE and coursework that contrasts with the view of Gorard, and Mitsos and Browne. It’s possible that exams have more of an influence on final grades as she evaluated the weighing of the coursework and written exams. Also, while coursework has some influence, it is unlikely to be the only course of gender gap. Furthermore, the removal of gender stereotypes from textbooks, reading schemes and other learning materials in recent years has removed a barrier to girls’ achievement, as argued by sociologists. Research from the 1970s and 80s found that reading schemes portrayed women mainly as housewives and mothers, that physics books showed them as frightened or amazed by science, and that maths books depicted boys as more invention than girls. Additionally, Weiner argues that since the 1980’s teachers have challenged such stereotypes. Also, in general, sexist images have been removed from learning materials. This may have helped to raise the girls’ achievement by presenting them with more positive images of what women can do. Some girls may still feel uncomfortable pursing certain subjects such as ICT because it is seen as a male subject. There are......
