...[pic] Human Resource Management Assignment Submitted By: Submitted To: Professor Saqib Ilyas Section: D Date: 15th May, 2012 Appraising the Secretaries at Sweetwater U 1) Do you think that the experts’ recommendations will be sufficient to get most of the administrators to fill out the rating forms properly? Why? Why not? What additional actions (if any) do you think will be necessary? Answer: While controversial, the recommendations would, in fact, encourage administrators tofill the forms out correctly. Using the more detailed form and not tying the performance ratings to salary increases would allow the managers to feel more free about rating the secretaries accurately. There would, however, need to be some strong training sessions (both for administrators and secretaries) to help them understand the new system. Since all secretaries have traditionally received the same salary increases, and have been pleased with that, it would be advisable to consider lowering the maximum increase to an amount that could be given to all secretaries while staying within budget. Then all secretaries with a satisfactory rating or better would receive that increase. 2) Do you think that Vice President Winchester would be better off dropping graphic rating forms, substituting instead one of the other techniques we have learnt, such as a ranking method? Why? Answer: Certainly other methods could be used. He has already had a......

The powerful states deem it their right to use press for their covert purposes. World Press Freedom Day, Other Side of the Coin On 3rd of May every year, soon after the termination of the Labour Day activities world press freedom day is observed. Freedom of press is a perpetual issue. There is always divided opinion over rights and duties of press. The media owners and journalists are always of the view that there should be liberty of they are bound to the futile rules and regulations and have no freedom to express the truth. On the other hand the ministries of the information argue that they have given extra ordinary freedom to the press. In fact these two opinions are the two extremes. The situation is in between these two states. Media insists on knowing more and more in order to astonish their viewers and readers. There is a lot of evidence that media aggrandize the matters always or conceal facts due to some overt purposes. Each and every country has formulated laws to control the media.

The Impact of Foreign Direct Investment on Economic Growth in Nigeria

...concentration on the private sector. The need for foreign capital to help boost the economy had opened ways of foreign investors to play in the Nigerian economy. It is clear that liberalization plays a significant role in the process of privatization as in it does the inflow of FDI, hence the relationship between FDI and Privatization. However, in view of the lessons 2008/09 global financial crises have shown, as much as foreign investments have become increasingly important for developing economies, they are also sources of vulnerabilities to such economies. That being said, there is no denying that local production of most consumer products have been taken over by multinationals thereby reducing the capacity of the nationals. Dr. Najai Saqib (2013) supports this view and advocates for domestic investment as a better alternative for the growth of the economies in developing countries. Furthermore, many countries including Nigeria now see attracting FDI as an important element in their strategy for economic development. This is most probably because FDI is seen as an amalgamation of capital, technology, marketing and management, which it is, nonetheless, the level of FDI attracted by Nigeria is mediocre, stating that the efficacy of FDI in generating the desired growth may be limited by the level of infrastructural and human capital development (Asiedu, 2003; Esther and Folorunso 2011 ). Finally, having examined the link between FDI, Privatization and economic growth,......

Energy Analysis

...opposed to being concerned solely on the direction of oil prices. It seems reasonable to believe that, given the concerns of rising interest rates, combined with oil price uncertainty, that markets will generally be more volatile in 2015. However, forward-thinking investors should realize that uncertainty and rapid-fire selloffs of stocks are only short-term determinants of returns – the strength of a portfolio is in its ability to weather major market movements and sustain above-market returns in the long run.

...Maham Saqib Class 3112 Outline * Issue of smoking. A chain smoker needs to make a decision about quitting * He starts off young, there is no going back. * The turning point is when his daughter is born. Decision is not forced upon him, rather he has the foresight to quit for the betterment of his daughter and to be an ideal father figure. FORESIGHT STRUCTURE: ROUGH DRAFT It started on a lazy afternoon when my friends and I went to the neighborhood cricket ground. The Karachi sun beat hard on the ground and I had to squint to see clearly. Akmal revealed a cigarette and Zain produced the lighter. I had my first smoke that day. It was all forward beyond that point. I went from two to six to twelve a day- I was addicted. In the beginning, I was afraid of what my parent would say if they ever found out. I hid around, smoked in the bathroom before a shower, or after everyone was asleep. I laughed at my naivety; they were bound to find out. And as sure as the sun that rises, my dad eventually discovered my habit. Boy, was that a rough time for me. I would be admonished and punished and my pocket money confiscated. I was restricted from meeting up with my friends. But it was a habit I couldn’t let go of. It’s not that I wasn’t aware of the consequences; it’s just that they didn’t seem real enough to me. And so I continued, my parents eventually caved in as they realized they weren’t going to get anywhere with me. My father was......
