Throughout the book Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger, a boy who does not know his place in life, illustrates the human need for logotherapy. Viktor Frankl, a Holocaust survivor, wrote "Mans search for meaning", in which he describes his experiences and ways of resisting the efforts of dehumanization in the holocaust. In Viktor Frankl's writing he delineates Logotherapy, which are three principles of mankind. The main character in Catcher in the Rye is Holden Caulfield, he is an unstable young man, who wanders around New York for three days, without knowing where to go or what do. Holden Caulfield would benefit if he applied Logotherapy to his everyday life.

The first principle of logotherapy states that's man has an inborn will to meaning, "We seek to live not only for ourselves, but to contribute something of worth to other people and to the world we live in."(370) Holden Caulfield rarely shows this trait, but he does reveal it seldomly to people he does not know for example when he says to a cab driver, "You know those ducks in that lagoon right near central park? That little lake? By any chance do you happen to know where they go, the ducks, when it gets all frozen over?∦"(60) This exhibits that Holden cares for some things, which means he has a will to meaning somewhere inside of him, he just needs to find it, like one of his teachers says, "∦but I can very clearly see you dying nobly, for some highly unworthy cause"(188) In this quote, Mr. Antolini is telling Holden that he believes he will do something worthy with his life, but it will not be something very useful.

Man has free will acts as the second aspect of logotherapy. Viktor Frankl states, " Man's freedom is no freedom from conditions but rather freedom to take a stand on whatever conditions might confront him"(371) Holden Caulfield sometimes shows free will, "∦I…...

Norwalk and the Sec Roadmap

...permanent solution to the differences in accounting methods, not a temporary fix. More recently in 2008, the SEC issued a proposed “roadmap” regarding converging to IFRS. This was a serious step toward abandoning U.S. GAAP once and for all, however, critics complained that the movement would be too expensive and would be less advantageous than the status quo to investors ("Where Will the SEC Take the IFRS Roadmap?"). The United States is currently in the process of determining the fate of their accounting standards. The cost of convergence is bound to be expensive, but the potential increase in global investment, future convenience of comparing financial information, and unification of the global economy may be worth the cost.

Leadership Capability and Performance

...using Y Theory as a whole. Therefore my conclusion is that I am a participative leader with transformational qualities although I prefer to stand back and let others take the glory. I believe these leadership traits work better when no-one realises where it comes from. I believe, to get the most out of your team/staff/workforce, one must make them believe their own performance requires patience and understanding, combined with an air of authority that does not threaten the individual but comforts and soothes anxiety, which ultimately commands respect from the individual which in turn creates better production.

...file a claim towards the provincial government for this matter and have enough information to support her claim and Wallis Boatswain would be protected under the ESA rights but can also file a claim towards the provincial government for punitive damages that were suffered during the incident. Ontario Cruises Inc. did everything right and if Wallis Boatswain were an employee under their company then Rose Alders original lawsuit would have been correct. The waiver of liability had nothing to do with this case, which would make plaintiffs and defendants both incorrect. The bigger picture is the provincial government had employees working under the province of Ontario at the pier that was owned and operated by them. Bilbliography Books: Mitchell Mcinnes, Ian R.

Police Annotated Bilbliography

...Tyler Aaberg Annotated Bibliography First of all my controversial topic is whether cops are truly bad or not. Obviously, with a topic like this no matter how credible a source might be, this topic can be influenced heavily by personal biases. I tried to take that into consideration in choosing my articles. Regardless of how many articles are for which side, I just want to say that I by no means support one side over the other. Article 1- My first article is from the Washington Post, and is written by a former cop. He talks about his time being in the St. Louis Police Department. He says that many, but not all cops, were very racist. Commonly referring to all black people as “thugs” regardless of whether or not the person was a victim or a bystander. The officer even talks about websites that his work peers had made that were dedicated to racist rants, which had to be shut down by administrators multiple times. I think that this is a good, credible argument, which offers a unique point of view that you do not always get with this debate. I think the fact that not only was this person a cop, but also a minority working gives a really interesting point of view. Most views are usually one or the other but not both. Article 2- This next article comes from David Protess. who is the President of the Chicago Innocence Project. His view is that the police are no different than any other profession. Are there some that are racist? Probably. But there are also a......

Business Ethics

...performance of their material risks and associated control procedures. However, such accounting frauds have again surfaced in 2008 with the fall of Lehman Brothers and the financial crisis, these unethical events also stemmed from the greed for higher profits undermining the risks associated with bad investments. With Enron, the employees and investors suffered the most, with 2008 crisis the whole world felt the impact resulting in economic slowdown of GDPs across the globe. Such events in my view should not be repeated as all economies are interconnected and each unethical case has a domino effect in the digital age. Thus, governments need to really push for stricter accounting norms for large multinationals to mitigate stakeholder risks. Bilbliography 1. Bazerman, M., & Moore, D. (n.d.).

...coference calls outside the business the hours to other branches of the organsition to talk about how your company is working and the advantages and disadvangtes about it.This would mean that when you are need to communicate to other branches of the organistion externally and will allow to communicate easily to them. Business has been made easy for individual as you have many ways of communicating within each other in the organistion and outside. Personally I believe ASDA is a good company and they have good ways of communicate to their customer. This has allowed the organsition to become vry big and let any people purchase item in the comapny to make the expnediture higher, allowing the company to become a fast-growing one.
