Apprenticeships develop employees who can do many different tasks. They usually involve several related groups of skills that allow the apprentice to practice a particular trade, and they take place over a long period of time in which the apprentice works for, and with, the senior skilled worker. Apprenticeships are especially appropriate for jobs requiring production skills.

Internships and assistantships are usually a combination of classroom and on-the-job training. They are often used to train prospective managers or marketing personnel.

Programmed learning, computer-aided instruction and interactive video all have one thing in common: they allow the trainee to learn at his or her own pace. Also, they allow material already learned to be bypassed in favor of material with which a trainee is having difficulty. After the introductory period, the instructor need not be present, and the trainee can learn as his or her time allows. These methods sound good, but may be beyond the resources of some small businesses.

Laboratory training is conducted for groups by skilled trainers. It usually is conducted at a neutral site and is used by upper- and middle management trainees to develop a spirit of teamwork and an increased ability to deal with management and peers. It can be costly and usually is offered by larger small businesses.

Trainers

Who actually conducts the training depends on the type of training needed and who will be receiving it. On-the-job training is conducted mostly by supervisors; off-the-job training, by either in-house personnel or outside instructors.

In-house training is the daily responsibility of supervisors and employees. Supervisors are ultimately responsible for the productivity and, therefore, the training of their subordinates. These supervisors should be taught the techniques of good training. They must be aware of the…...

The article was published in December 2012 * The paper states the new generations methods of learning are changing towards technological ways such as communication technologies. * What fascinated me was why the new generation cannot use proper grammar when texting or chatting. Is there a way that the educational system could adapt to the new generation’s method of learning or even differentiate between when to use bad grammar and correct grammar. * The author uses quantitative research by preforming an experiment suing 228 students. Also, the research is qualitative because the research is than analyzed to assume a new method of learning. * The author is examining 228 sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. * The author asks, “Does the increased use of text messaging engender greater reliance on such textual adaptations to the point of altering one’s sense written grammar? * Why should teaching and learning methods evolve at the same pace as technology? 2) Kristin A.

...Contrast essay “Shame”, by Dick Gregory is a story about a young boy who learns what it is like to feel ashamed. In this story poor society and racism is displayed. As a welfare recipient, with no father, Gregory had a tough life. He went to school like other children but was not treated fairly, and he worked, unlike most children. In “I Became Her Target”, by Roger Wilkins, the young boy dealt with being the new kid. He also felt ashamed, but this story goes on and takes a turn for the better. The teacher in Wilkins’ classroom was more of a teacher everyone would love to have. Wilkins was accepted by his teacher as a black student starting a new life in a new home with his new step-father. Wilkins’ experience was better because of the benefits he possessed. Unlike Gregory who had to struggle with everything like money a father figure and a supportive teacher. Gregory was worse off than Wilkins because he lived in poverty. Living in such poverty Gregory finds ways to live up to the standards of the other kids by working and washing his own clothes without the necessities to do so. After a while he felt ashamed of being on welfare, which was one of the reasons he pitied himself. On the other hand Wilkins in “I Became Her Target” had lived in a nice neighborhood and rode a bike to school, he was more fortunate. Wilkins was different from Gregory because he did not have poverty problems. Unlike Wilkins Gregory had very little to offer, because he had no father to help......

Original Sin

...Judaism’s Rejection of the Original Sin In the bible, the story of Adam and Eve in the book of Genesis serves as scriptural evidence of humankind’s first transgression of God’s command resulting in the expulsion from paradise. Christians claim that humans are tainted from the fall and many scholars reinforce the idea of a recovery narrative, which depicts the bible as following a pattern of decline and recovery, thereby reinforcing the belief that something was once lost and must be recovered. After mankind’s fall from the state of perfection, Christians believed that Jesus was their savior and would consequently sacrifice himself in order to redeem man. Through the act of disobedience in Genesis emerged the concept of the original sin, which stipulates that humans are born sinners and that sins pass from parent to child as an inherited characteristic. Jewish believers, however, often criticize this notion and although they acknowledge that the human race came under the dominion of sin, which would affect their subsequent environment, Judaism, unlike Christianity denies that man is born into this world in a state of sin. Judaism affirms that the act of sinning is not part of the human condition but rather represents a conflict between two opposing inclinations (a good and an evil tendency) and that man has the ability to resist sin and can overcome the evil inclination by willing himself to become a righteous person. Therefore, Jewish people believe that man is......

Looking Up and Looking Around

...Reading 1.3  Jackall, R. (1988) Chapter 4, ‘Looking Up and Looking Around’, in Moral Mazes, Oxford University Press, NY. Abstract In the early sections of “Looking Up and Looking Around” Jackall seeks to explain the reasons behind inadequate decision making processes and ability. The circumstances and environments that cultivate ‘decision-making paralysis’ and a lack of individual decision making ability are explained. Numerous examples and reasons are outlined to communicate a manager’s fear of failure, reluctance to make decisions and inability to make effective decisions when required at all hierarchical levels. If a decision must be made, particularly for an unexpected situation or problem, there is a tendency to look up, at superior’s intents and desires, and look around, at the general consensus of peers, before making any decisions. Jackall also explains managerial short term focus, the corporate culture of self interest and the reasons for each. In particular, he explains the manager’s interest in their progression and preference for short term, self promoting, often political, decisions over rational decisions that benefit the organisation in the long term. These passages show that personal ambition prevents good, rational decisions being made. Jackall also shows how this extends to the blaming of others and changing jobs in order to avoid being accountable for the consequences of previous decisions or strategies that enabled individual corporate progression.

Looking in

...  Looking In I agree that I can read other people emotions. As a leader in the military this skill is a must. You have to have the pulse of your unit, you have to be able to see that your soldier(s) are having a problem. I agree that I can easily perceive and expression my emotions, however there is always room for improvement. I will continue to “read” people and try to assist them in any way I can. We all need help at one time or another even if it’s just talking to someone to get something off ones chest. I will start working on my lack of patience sometimes. I will stop, assess the situation and make a rational decision. I do from time to time have a lack of patience and this is an area that I will continue to seek self-improvement on. This self assessment will assist me in the work place because it shows me I have the ability to perceiving and identifying other emotions. By having this ability it will allow me to be a better member of the team. If I have a co-worker that is easily annoyed by something, I will pick up on that and I can adjust my approach on working with him/her to avoid conflicts. By implementing this assessment into my work place it will also let me know who I can express emotion too and know how certain people will respond to a show of emotions. I can also use this tool to understand how I will react in certain situations and how I can respond to conflict or adversity. Interpersonal communication is the process of sending and receiving......

...vulnerabilities and a list prioritizing threats facing the organization. The resulting grid provides a convenient method of examining the “exposure” of assets, allowing a simplistic vulnerability assessment. 10. What are the four risk control strategies? Describe each control strategy. Answer: Avoidance, Transference, Mitigation, and Acceptance. (see lecture slides) 11. Describe how outsourcing can be used for risk transference. Answer: Outsourcing can be used for risk transference when an organization chooses to hire an ISP or a consulting organization to provide products and services for them like buying and configuring servers, hiring their own webmasters, web system administrators and even specialized security experts. This allows the organization to transfer risk associated with management of these complex systems to another organization that has experience in dealing with those risks. Benefit of outsourcing is that the provider is responsible for disaster recovery and through service level arrangements is responsible for guarantying server and website availability. 12. What conditions must be met to ensure that risk acceptance has been used properly? Answer: The following conditions must be met to ensure that risk acceptance has been used properly: the level of risk posed to the asset has been determined, the probability of attack and the likelihood of a successful exploitation of a vulnerability has been assessed, the annual......

...Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in 1804 in Salem, Massachusetts. One of the short stories that we read for “Initiation/Rites of Passage” was “Young Goodman Brown”. I am more familiar with “The Scarlet Letter” as we had to read this in high school. While he was away at college, he missed his family, although his father died earlier in 1808, and that is when he started writing. He was left to work in the salt and coal mine due to limited income through his writing. He ended up marrying Sophia Peabody who was a painter in 1842 where he rented a home from Ralph Waldo Emerson and they had 3 children. Hawthorne was very much into politics. Later in life many of his writings were not finished and his health began to fail. He later died in 1864. I feel that his writing fit him and the themes of his work was backed up by the type of writer he was. http://www.biography.com/people/nathaniel-hawthorne-9331923#synopsis James Joyce was the writer of “Araby”. He was almost like a no holds barred type of writer. His style of writing was sometimes hard to understand and it was to the point. He was from Dublin, Ireland and he attended 4 colleges. Joyce was always struggling with his eyesight throughout his life. He grew up in a large family being the oldest of ten. He was extremely smart and was a talented writer. He left Ireland to go to Paris and take up medicine, however, his mother fell ill and he returned to his hometown to take care of her. He wrote a book compiled of......

...and skip commercials. In effect, PVRs, like older VCRs, allow viewers to control when they watch broadcast programs (called “time shifting”). However, PVRs provide much sharper pictures and are much simpler to operate than VCRs and PVRs allow the user to download the television schedule for the next week. Two companies currently sell the hardware and provide the subscription service: TiVo and ReplayTV. Both firms started 1997. As of 2008 TiVo had nearly four million subscribers and ReplayTV had been purchased by DirectTV. Companies are developing new technologies that make it even easier for users to “snip” commercials. Cable companies have begun offering a combined cable box and PVR in one unit for a small additional monthly charge. This further simplifies setup and operation, and the user gets a single bill.   1. Discuss how PVRs will affect the demand from advertisers? 2. Suppose you are in charge of setting the price for commercial advertisements shown during Enemies, a top network television show. There is a 60-min slot for the show. However, the running time for the show itself is only 30 minutes. The rest of the time can be sold to other companies to advertise their products or donated for public service announcement. Demand for advertising is given by: Qd= 30 – 0.0002P + 26V Where Qd = quantity demanded for advertising on the show (minutes), P = price per minute that you can charge for advertising, and V is the number of viewers expected to watch the......
