Being an American

I am proud to be an American because of the many brave men and women we have in our armed forces ready and willing to fight for our freedom at any time, against any opposing force. We as Americans exemplify courage. We work together in hardships; whether it being a natural disaster, a terrorist attack or our own fellow Americans fault in damaging the United States economy. We work as one. Especially in any branch of the armed forces they continually cooperative with one another all are striving for one goal, to protect our freedom. This struggle has been ongoing since America’s forefathers first sat down to write the Declaration of Independence in order to break free from the hands of the smothering British rule. They all understood that freedom would never come free. They knew there would be a never-ending battle for what they desired. And the Constitution states that we will always be in fight as one because of the first 3 words written, “We the people…” One American who illustrated the most courageous acts in the middle in distress and confrontation was General Patton. Even though he was not the most appropriate with his choice of words at times, he showed his courage with his persistence of pushing the horrible Germany Nazi army line further and further into a corner of Europe and saved us from the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler. With his audacity and vicious mentality made it perfect for him to inspire the troops he lead with grace yet fierceness into battle to shelter our freedom, and his freedom of speech. Even the forces who are stationed here at home in the United States demonstrate their courage. Some by diving into ground zero at the 9/11 attack while others were running away. The brave firemen and New York police department rumbling through broken glass, fractured steel poles, and ashes from the building burning down looking for…...

Tui Group's Description

...to Switzerland, Holland, Austria and Belgium. In 1998, they took acquisition of the group Hapag Touristik Union and 3 years later, in 2001, they became 100% subsidiary of an industrial and transportation Company named Preussag AG, which in the 1990’s decided to concentrate their company on tourism, shipping, and logistics. On 3 September 2007 the tourism division of TUI AG merged with First Choice Holidays PLC to create TUI Travel PLC, an international leisure travel group listed on the London Stock Exchange. TUI AG owns 43% of the new company, operating in 180 countries and serving 30 million customers. On March 2009, they decided to sell big parts of their important container shipping company Hapag Lloyd AG to the to the Albert Ballin consortium of investors. TUI retains a 43.3% stake in the firm and continues to wholly own and operate the cruise line Hapag-Lloyd Kreuzfahrten. This means that TUI has become a pure tourism oriented company. This means that TUI decided to concentrate their activity in three different tourist sectors: TUI travel (tour operating, online sales, high street outlets, airlines and incoming agencies), TUI Hotels & Resorts and TUI Cruises, the cruise ship business. Today, TUI GROPUG GmbH is the undisputed leader in the European tourism industry. They operate in over 180 countries worldwide serving more than 30 million customers offering a wide range of leisure travel experiences: TUI Group unites over 3,600 travel agencies. Mainly......

Case

...this Court must refrain from reviewing the internal processes of Congress, as a co-equal branch of government, however, when a constitutional requirement exists, the Court has the duty to look into Congress’ compliance therewith. We cannot turn a blind eye to possible violations of the Constitution simply out of courtesy. In this regard, the pronouncement in Arroyo v. De Venecia56 is enlightening, thus: "Cases both here and abroad, in varying forms of expression, all deny to the courts the power to inquire into allegations that, in enacting a law, a House of Congress failed to comply with its own rules, in the absence of showing that there was a violation of a constitutional provision or the rights of private individuals. United States v. Ballin, Joseph & Co., the rule was stated thus: ‘The Constitution empowers each House to determine its rules of proceedings. It may not by its rules ignore constitutional restraints or violate fundamental rights, and there should be a reasonable relation between the mode or method of proceeding established by the rule and the result which is sought to be attained." In the present case, the Court’s exercise of its power of judicial review is warranted because there appears to be a clear abuse of the power of contempt on the part of respondent Committees. Section 18 of the Rules provides that: "The Committee, by a vote of majority of all its members, may punish for contempt any witness before it who disobey any order of the Committee or......

Managing Change

...very clear example and a consequence of poor communication is the lack of continuous training to meet the requirements of a particular change programme. In generally all the published case studies of companies that have embarked upon any change initiative, training and development have been seen as an integral part of wider strategies aimed at the creation of new working practices and a better motivated, more self-reliant workforce (Ballin, 1986: 24 cited in Keep, 1995: 116) Oakland (1998: 309) refers to training as the single most important factor in actually improving the organizational change programmes (e.g. TQM) and argues that it must be performed objectively, systematically and continuously in the form of a cycle of improvement. Central to this cycle of improvement is the fact that training must be part of the change initiative policy (p.310). A review of the UK and US writings on TQM initiatives, for example, gives the impression of a generally accepted view on ‘employee training and development’ to be critical for its success ( e.g. Ballin, 1986: 24; Keep, 1995: 116; Oakland, 1998; Kanji, & Asher, 1993; Deming, 1986; Juran, 1989; Crosby, 1979; Saraph et al., 1989; Ahire et al., 1996; Powell, 1995). Despite the heavy emphasis placed on the training, recent research (e.g. Patton & Marlow, 2002; Gopal, 2005; Keep & Mayhew, 1997; Gallup Management Journal, 1998; Joyce et al., 1995) has served to underline the extreme poverty of both private and public sector......

Jay Z Paper

...connection with President Obama and thinks he will not be incarcerated for his crime. Jay-Z is also trying to make a statement that he can do whatever he wants no matter what the law says. Jay-Z is a multimillion dollar man and can afford to go anywhere in the world no matter the cost and there is one place that is off limits; Cuba. He sees this as an opportunity to prove himself as one of the most powerful people in America. He also talks about the government and how they try to dethrone people who are making a mass amount of money because they want to keep full control. Jay-Z states “Balling ‘till they ban us”. He will continue to expand his wealth with his recent part ownership of the Brooklyn Nets. His play on words are ambiguous, by using “ballin” it can refer to making more money or his basketball team. He is also saying to the government that he will continue to make a mockery of the laws until they discipline him. Senators tried to ban Jay-Z from entering Cuba, but he went anyway with no repercussions. As a continuation of that statement he says “You getting too much bread they try to jam you”. Also referring to the government saying that when a black American starts to make a lot of money and gaining power the authorities come down harder on them, waiting for them to mess up. He also uses “bread” and “jam” in sense that the authorities try “spread” or cover over Jay-Z’s money with their power. Saying that the government tries to exercise their power on American......

...Riviera, the long esplanade along the seafront is known to this day as the Promenade des Anglais; in many other historic resorts in continental Europe, old, well-established palace hotels have names like the Hotel Bristol, Hotel Carlton, or Hotel Majestic – reflecting the dominance of English customers. Cruise shipping Cruising is a niche form of tourism, a feature of which is that it typically touches more than one country but it typically does not touch any country. It is a popular form of water tourism. Leisure cruise ships were introduced by the Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company (P&O) in 1844,[33] sailing from Southampton to destinations such as Gibraltar,Malta and Athens.[34] In 1891, German businessman Albert Ballin sailed the ship Augusta Victoria from Hamburg into the Mediterranean Sea.
