Generating Solutions Using Futuring

Making a phone call in the year 2020 - In the future of 2020 making a phone call could be much better than it already is. They could have a machine that projects the whole person standing in front of you like a hologram. It would be much better than face time or making a normal phone call because it would be like they are standing right in front of you. Eating a meal in 2050 – Eating a meal in the year 2050 could be very different from today. I imagine it could be in the forum of a pill, you could be able to drop some water on it in a dish. Once you dropped the water on it you could put it into a machine and the machine would turn it into a full cooked meal of your choice. Doing a homework assignment in the year 2025 – Doing a homework assignment in the year 2025 would be much different because it would be virtual reality. To do your homework you would have to put on a headset and it would take you into a whole different world. It would be much better to do homework like this because it would give you an almost real life experience, opposed to reading a book and typing a paper you would actually have to jump into the situation and solve whatever problems there might be. Doing a homework assignment in the year 2025 – In the year 2025 doing homework would be a breeze, it would be a breeze because you would not have to do any work. In the year 2025 they would just inject your brain with information. Instead of going to class to learn you would go for a series of injections until the course was completed and you graduate.…...

Everyman and the Second Shepherds' Play

...death. The shepherds cannot meet Jesus in their sinful, materialistic condition. After they become charitable to their fellow man however, they are able to see the baby Jesus. They begin their string of good deeds by being kind to Mak's baby. Coll asks his fellow shepherds "Gave ye the child anything?" (Shepherds' 825) realizing their lack of charity. Daw offers to give That little day-starn. Mak with your leaf, Let me but give your barn But sixpence. (Shepherds' 834-837) Their good deed allows them to find their lost sheep and recover it. By performing a good deed they regain what was theirs originally. When they decide For this trespass We will neither ban ne flite, Fight nor chite, But have done as tite, And cast him in canvas. (Shepherds' 902-907) They perform a very charitable deed. The penalty for stealing is hanging, but they decide just to throw him in a sack. Much like Everyman's embracing of his good deeds allows his salvation, the shepherds' good deeds allow them to regain their sheep, and more importantly make them fit to witness the birth of Jesus. The angel addresses them as "herdmen hend" (Shepherds' 920), or gracious shepherds. This form of address reinforces the value of their charity in God's eyes. Through their good deeds "God is made your friend / Now at this morn" (Shepherds' 926-927). Without their leniency they would be unable to visit Jesus. They are joyous because of "Coll.

...WOLFGANG KELLER CASE Q. Keller's assessment of Brodsky? Keller feels that Brodsky is not effective to be at his position even when he believes that Brodsky has excellent analytical skills, (by designing the impressive sales force organization) but sooner he discredits them by showing his effort because of which the redesigning had been done early. Keller also believes that Brodsky tries to avoid the work which has impossible deadlines because of which he keeps doing these works several times and Brodsky doesn't bother. Keller also feels that Brodsky should take part in the fun activities like going for fishing trips, playing cards with his colleagues rather than maintaining a formal Vy way. Keller also feels that he should stay as a Staff member rather than as a Leader. Q. My perceptive on Keller's assessment of Brodsky's performance? According to my point of view Keller's assessment of Brodsky is very bias and totally based on his own ideals. The words that Keller used for Brodsky that hi is "of a low level leadership and no personality" which is kind of very harsh words to be used for a person who is at a high post in the company,obviously he has a personality that is why he is a Director of the company. I also think Keller could have acted gently and have coached Brodsky rather than just putting the negative points about him. If Brodsky doesn't want to talk about his personal life or mix his professional life with personal life is totally fine, every person......

The inner cylinder had a diameter of 1.27 cm while the outer ring had an outer diameter of 2.64 and inner diameter of 2.22 cm. The A36 carbon steel was polished by a 3M® 80 grit then a 3M® 600 grit sandpaper. Two wires were attached to the capacitor, one was soldered to the base of the center A36 steel rod and the other was welded to the base of the outer ring of the 316 stainless steel. A bridge made of a glass substrate epoxy resin insulator from the circuit board (BM-FR4-1SS2, T-Tech Inc., Norcross, GA, USA) was adhered on the bottom of both the inner cylinder and the ring through a waterproof epoxy (15206 Anchor-Tite, Super Glue Corporation, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, USA) to fix their relative positions. Finally, the waterproof epoxy was used to cover the connections of these wires as well as the base of the sensor to prevent corrosion of the connections and the wires, as well as to insulate the sensor from the infrastructure to be monitored. The uncovered A36 steel had a surface area of about 2.66 cm2, which was subject to corrosion. Similarly, a reference sensor was made following the same procedures and dimensions except replacing the A36 carbon steel rod with a 316 stainless steel rod of the same dimensions, and then being welded to connect to the circuit-board bridge. The connections including welding points of the reference sensor were coated......

...opportunity to witness to pagans (Wiccans in particular) whenever I get the chance. Credibility goes a long way with pagans and having been one before gets my “foot in the door” and I let the Holy Spirit guide me from that point. One thing is very clear to me from my research, and that is the fact that Wicca is not going away. The modern church has to be aware of the threat that Wicca poses, as well as be prepared to witness to pagans whenever God presents us with the opportunity. One final piece of advice, thank God if you get the chance to “plant the seed”. It may not be the will of God for you to see positive results and reap the harvest. Be content to plant the seed of faith and continue to pray! WORKS CITED Heibert, R., Shaw D., & Tite, T. (1999) Understanding folk religion. Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books Sire, J.

Entrepreneurial Leadership

...According to Foreman (2008), ‘’ Kiam first company was, Benrus watchmakers which later became a luxury accessories. After eight years, he started the Friendship Collection, an American importer of jewellery, antiques and other artefacts from China. Kiam managed to acquire Remington for only $500,000; ten years later the annual profits were £350 million and as the profits of Remington soared, Kiam, the sole shareholder, diversified into clothes and jewellery. In 1989 he acquired the New England Patriots American Football team for $80 million’’. Now that we have an understanding of whom Victor Kiam was and what type of entrepreneur he was, let move to his basic principles. Tite (2011) reported that, Kiam basic principles were: Truth, Honesty and Transparency. Throughout his career, Kiam delivered on all three. Tite (2011) argued that’’ Kiam wasn’t just a spokesperson. He was the owner. He stood behind his products and his claims (“Shaves as close as a blade or your money back”) and people believed him ‘’. ‘’ You can only govern men by serving them. The rule is without exception’’ Victor Kiam. Zlattef (2009) argued that, Victor Kiam believed that in order to be successful in business and in life, one have to help other. ‘’Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward’’.
