Academic Qualification Is Prerequisite for Success

...ACADEMIC QUALIFICATION: IS PRE- REQUISITE FOR SUCCESS… Amartya Sen, the recipient of the Nobel Prize, the Bharat Ratna Puruskar and so many other prestigious awards, is definitely one of the most treasured Indians. He has brought in, innumerable changes, revolutionized and challenged existing thought patterns and beliefs in economics and related fields. Surely there could be no better illustration of the glory of academic qualification Namskar to this intellectual gathering, the distinguished members of the jury, I, code no- vehemently support the motion – Academic qualification: Is pre-requisite for success. My counter parts may b convincing enough in their efforts of establishing that academic qualification are not the only prerequisite to success……but to their utter dismay I would acknowledge their efforts as totally misguiding. Qualifications are about conforming to standards – standards of knowledge and proficiency, standards of expertise and training, standards that allow one person to be compared t o another. My worthy oponents may argue that academic qualifications can hinder business acumen but friends, this business would not have been possible without the founders’ qualifications. In India, today all the heads of the leading bussiness houses are well proficient in their academic qualification.

Aromatherapy Midwifery

...complications of pregnancy will not be discussed here, as although some therapies may be useful at this time, medical advise should always be sought before commencing any treatment. Minor complications of early pregnancy will also not be examined as a great deal of contradiction exists within the literature regarding the relative safety of much treatment during these early months (Davis 1995, Burke and Chambers 1996, Balaskas 1990). Before embarking on any aromatherapy consultation with an existing client, it is the midwifes responsibility to be properly informed and receive adequate training and qualification (UKCC 1992). If the midwife has not received specialist training, the client should be encouraged to seek guidance from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before starting any form of self treatment. Tiran (1996) believes this training should become integrated into the initial midwifery training program, enabling all midwives to offer this service, thus offering this option to a greater number of clients without private fees. Although the physiological effectiveness of many oils remains mostly unproven (Tiran 1996, Vickers 1998), the ‘feel-good factor’ provided by the use of aromatherapy remains undisputed by even the most sceptical (Stevenson 1998, Featherstone and Forsyth 1997). The often pleasant aromas have the ability to lift the spirits, and distract the mind, particularly when used in conjunction with other therapies such as massage, shiatsu or......

Presidential Matrix for Qualifications

...to begin to imagine being a leader of such proportion? I for one thought such qualifications included things such as having at least a bachelor’s degree majoring in economics, or various achievements that prove he or she loves this country and desires to ensure its progress. The day they take office that man or woman should have been known for the last two years from a campaign and that there are no indictments or discrepancies that contradict any fiscal or social policy. Motivated and equipped with the leadership, and skill set acquired from past achievements, my presidential matrix should raise the standards a little. Below is a matrix system involving presidents from Truman to Obama to determine what quality of president they were on day one. * My first qualification is military service. As it seems that every president was an officer, it became a standard for me. However, personally I can’t honestly stomach much respect for officers, because in my perspective they don’t do much work but get all the credit, they receive 15 for service. They get split between reserve and active, naturally. They receive 5 for reserve and 15 for active. After that I look at if they even went overseas, again, scored accordingly with 20 overseas, and 5 for stateside. The extra 20 for Eisenhower is for the extreme prestige he accumulated by being general of the entire Army. * My second qualification is college. I granted 5 for an associates, 10 for a bachelors, and 15 for a......

Looks vs Academic Qualification

...to the conclusion that good looks get more priority than academic qualifications in professional life, he or she is just coming to the conclusion in a superficial manner. On the other hand you can’t also assume that success only depends on academic qualification because it is a very controversial topic and many believe that success never depends upon only good grades. There point of view is that if success and opportunities were measured by grades then the corporate world would not ask for bio-data in resumes, where other qualifications are also mentioned. Nor would they interview the prospects in order to find out what they are like as people, rather they would give a blind appointment to the people with the best paper qualifications. So they strongly back up the view that qualifications alone are never enough, success depends upon physical characteristics, personality, and a willingness to work hard. Now, to cover up the whole thing we can say academic qualification is rather a guide to help push us in the direction to success. BACKGROUND: You must be very careful to know the core difference between academic qualifications and education in general. There are lot of difference in between Education and Academic Qualification.  Education is defined as the process or art of imparting knowledge, skill, judgment, facts and ideas that have been learned, either formally or informally and academic qualification is defined as a quality, ability or accomplishment that makes a......

Falsification of Experience and Qualifications

...Falsification of Experience and Qualifications Poindexter A. Hocutt Everglades University There are a lot of reasons why the opinion’s from the public about the construction industry is not always positive. It takes years to build a great reputation within this industry; however, it can be destroyed in the fraction of that time. The construction industry has some of the most issues when it comes to ethics. A lot of things play a role in this from bid cutting, poor documentation and even unfair treatment of contractors. All of these issues are big issues and there are many more that could be brought up, however, there is one that stood out to me the most, due to it being the most occurring act, which, happens to be competitors’ falsification of experience and qualifications. This false and misleading thing should not be going on. No one should be able to perform engineering work without being a registered professional. There are so many concerns that are present when doing projects with falsified credentials, such as safety and quality of the engineering projects. It may seem that this type of thing is impossible and one may wonder how is this even possible, but there are a lot of things like this going around. Individuals in this industry are making fake degrees and also stealing them from other experience individuals in this profession. Some get off with just fines and being force from there job, however, I think that there should be no easy way out when this is done.......

Mediator Qualification

...Mediator Qualification Paper “Confidentiality in mediation is based upon a complex combination of constitutional rights including the First Amendment: free speech/the right of the public to know; the Fourth Amendment: the right to be left alone; the Fifth Amendment: granting protection from incriminating oneself; and the Fourteenth Amendment: liberty rights to make individual and family decisions. In addition, tort law protects parties from invasion of privacy by others.”(para.1 etc) Therefore my opinion on the confidentiality versus good-faith requirement controversy, which applies to Texas, has bitter sweet results. It seems that courts can use confidentiality and good faith when they find it appropriate to obtain what they want. Therefore to me it does not meet the confidentiality fundamental basics of the First, Fourth, and fifth Amendments. According to, “Texas courts of appeals have consistently held that orders to mediate in good faith are void in the face of the state’s confidentiality statutes.47 According to one Texas Court of Appeals: “While a court may compel parties to participate in mediation, it cannot compel the parties to negotiate in good faith or to settle their dispute,” and the ADR statutes require “that communications and records made in an ADR procedure remain confidential; consequently, the manner in which the participants negotiate should not be disclosed to the trial court” (para. 1 etc). Is there one statute or regulation that covers all mediators...

Educational Qualification

...general assumptions that states of poverty in the family or home goes to a long way to determine the extent of youth or students educational development. Education is seen by many as the route to alleviate poverty. There is no doubt that meaningful; education is the most potent instrument for alleviating and eventually abolishing poverty. In considering the effect of poverty on academic performance of students to be precise, the home background is the most important phenomenon that needs to be seriously considered in order to enhance the effective study of the relationship between poverty and students academic performance. In view of this, some factors that needed to be considered in the home or family background are parents academic qualification, socio-economic class and facilities available in home or home environment as well as parent status. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM Evidence shows that in Nigeria, the number of those in poverty has continued to increase every year. By 1999, when the government came into power, it was estimated that more than 70% of Nigeria lived in poverty. In recent years, it has been a controversy through in the mind of people that if the poor status of any society or nation, even family can really have an impact on the students educational performance. In view of this, the study intends to investigate the positive and negative impact of poverty on the student’s education in Nigeria. This is because the diversity of the world poverty by......
