The Graduate – 1st person narrative
My name is Benjamin and I’ve just graduated as a teacher. Now I’m home, and I’m waiting for a party. It is because that my parents are proud of me because I’m now able to become a teacher.
Actually, I didn’t enjoy the party at all. I had so many things on my mind that I didn’t care about all the guests. I know that they just wanted to congratulate me, but I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I could. You see, now when I’m done with my graduation my life and mind has become very trivial. The days look like each other, and I don’t know what to do anymore, so I have to think about it. I have to think a lot..about everything.
I went up to my room to think, but someone suddenly came in of the door. My father had a business partner and it was his wife, Mrs. Robinson, who was there.
She wanted me to follow her home, and I felt like i had to do it because she wasn’t all! I drove her home. As soon as we arrived at her house I wanted to go back home, but she had other plans. She tried to seduce me.
She even got bare naked and let me see her. She told me that she was avoidable for me, but I just wanted to go home so I did so.
However, after travelling a lot I wanted to see her and have sex with her. So I arranged a meeting with her in a hotel. But because of that I only got problems because I felt in love with Mrs. Robinson’s daughter, Elaine. And I don’t know how to make her mine; because I’ve had sex with her…...

Hier ist die Jugend nicht treu und wählt das nächste Mal eine andere Partei. Sie meinen dass die meisten Politiker Idioten sind und das ist sehr anders in der Elterngeneration. Die meisten Eltern meinen dass die Jugend unpolitisch ist. Und sie sagen auch dass die Jugend nur machen was sich wollen. a) Welche Einstellung haben Heike, Rixa und Anna zu Deutschland und zu Europa? Inwiefern haben dänische Jugendliche die gleiche Einstellung zum Thema Europa? Heike, Rixa und Anna haben die Einstellung von Europa als eine Union. Sie sehen sich als Europäer und sehen Europa als ein gesamtes Land. Sie haben sich nicht mit Deutschland identifiziert und dass ist anders als die Elterngeneration. Die Elterngeneration war skeptisch gegen über die Europäische Union und sie fühlten als ob sie ihre Identität verloren. Aber Heute ist das Weltbild anders mit Globalisierung und die Politik ist global. Die technologische Entwicklung ist riesig und Europa ist heute eine kleinere Welt. Im Dänemark ist die Situation ein bisschen anders. Ich denke dass die Jugend in Dänemark sich als dänisch sehen. Deutschland ist eine wichtigere Nation in Europa als Dänemark.

Leadership Analysis of Jeff Bezos on Amazon.Com

...Inside Amazon’s Idea Machine: How Bezos Decodes the Customer Jeff Bezos is known for his customer-centric beliefs and his attention to business details. According to Anders (2013), he "is a notorious micromanager… an executive who wants to know about everything from contract details to how he is quoted in all Amazon press releases”. Jeff Bezos' is the world's largest internet retailer of any kind reporting more than $61 billion in 2012 sales (Anders, 2013). Based on an article published by Forbes in April 2013, this work identifies some of Jeff Bezos’ leadership traits and style that have influenced him to build Amazon into one of most profitable and most admired companies in the world. The article by George Anders (2013), contributor writer for Forbes, highlights how Amazon was transformed from an online bookstore to a giant Internet retailer, Bezos’ customer-centric strategies to figure out what his 164-million customers want and not his 56,000 employees, and how Amazon manages its “culture of metrics” in order to track its performance through about 500 measurable goals. Through Jeff Bezos’ greatest accomplishment of transforming Amazon from an online bookstore to a giant Internet retailer, this author can identify Bezos’ leadership traits, such as intelligence, self-confidence, determination, and integrity, within the framework of Trait Approach. The Trait Approach suggests that organizations will work better if the people in the managerial positions have......

Mga Bagay Na Nakakapekto Sa Pagsasalita was Baard, and he had a brother named Anders. They had thought a great deal of each other, enlisted together, lived together in town, went through the war together, served in the same company, and had both risen to the rank of corporal. When they came home from the war, people said they were two fine, stalwart fellows.Then their father died. He left much personal property, which was difficult to divide, and therefore they said to each other that they would not let this come between them, but would put the property up at auction, that each might buy what he wanted, and both share the proceeds. And it was done. But the father had owned a large gold watch, which had come to be known far and wide, for it was the only gold watch people in those parts had ever seen. When this watch was put up, there were many wealthy men who wanted it, but when both brothers began to bid, all the pthers desisted. Now Baard expected that Anders would let him have it, and Anders expected the same of Baard. They bid in turn, each trying the other out, and as they bid they looked hard at each other. WHen the watch had gone up to twenty dollars, Baard began to feel that this was not the kind of his brother, and bid over him until he almost reached thirty. When Anders did not withdraw even then Baard felt that Anders no longer remembered how good he had often been to him, and that he was furthermore the elder of the two; and the watch went over thirty. Anders still kept on. Baard then raised the......

...siden var jeg en del af denne her lille gruppe drenge der bestod af mig, Thais, Sebastian og Anders. Vi gik på samme skole i syvende klasse. Vi vidste ikke på daværende tidspunkt at vi kun gjorde dårlige og slemme ting for hinanden. Men det gjorde vi… i høj grad!....” Jeg husker tydeligt denne her ene gang, hvor at vi alle skulle sove samme. Vi havde selvfølgelig alle penge med, til lidt slik og sådan noget. Men da vi stod inde i Super Brugsen kom Thias over til mig med nogle poser slik i hånden ”Tag dem her ned i tasken, skynd dig!” hviskede han ”-Jamen hvorfor vi har jo rigeligt penge med?” ”Bare gør det!” hviskede Thais med et surt udtryk i ansigtet. Jeg kiggede pudsigt på ham, vi havde aldrig stjålet før eller gjort andet ulovligt. Jaah, det vil sige, vi havde tegnet lidt med kridt på husene som jo er hærværk, men aldrig noget i sådan en stor stil. Men jeg gjorde det, jeg tog slikket ned i tasken. Morgenen senere havde jeg den dårligste fornemmelse i maven, jeg turde ikke at sige det til nogen, men jeg havde brug for at tale med nogen om det. Jeg følte ikke at jeg kunne gå til mine forældre, jeg følte ikke at jeg kunne gå til nogen! Overhovedet. Jeg lå der alene og spekulerede over hvad jeg skulle gøre, mens de andre stadig sov. Jeg vil tro jeg lå et par timer og fik det mere og mere dårligt med mig selv og rigtig ondt i maven…. ”Go’ morgen gutter! Så er det op” Sagde Anders ”-Argh… hvorfor allerede?!” snærede Sebastian. Vi gik ned til morgen bordet, der var......

Discuss How the Business Strategy Affects Information Systems and Organizational Decisions at Roche and How Information Systems Support Roche’s Business Strategy?

...the corridors. The management saw what was going on and identified the benefits of the teams working in collaboration rather than in competition. “Roche could harness the energy of those corridor meetings and try to direct it toward breakthrough science” (Anders, 2002). In 1998, the company turned to a more collaborative style of teamwork—especially for its teams working in the new field of genomics. These teams became multi-disciplinary with geneticists, molecular biologists, statisticians and computer technicians all working together. “Roche began running ads in Science magazine for a young new breed of researchers who could reinvent themselves as their job opportunities rapidly changed”. This enabled Roche to deliver dynamic capabilities to readjust required competencies on a continual basis (Johnson, Scholes, & Whittington, 2008). The business strategy that Roche adopted also had a profound impact on its information systems. The new medical research technologies required to implement it meant that the company was forced to invest heavily in developing it computing abilities. The management at the same time also recognised a need to increase the speed at which they could identify new products for development (Anders, 2002). This need for speed was facilitated by the adoption of new technologies in particular the GeneChip developed as a result of advances in genomics. The GeneChip provided a clear competitive advantage which warranted its development and top down......

TYPES OF PARTNERSHIPS  General/ordinary partnership The partners are liable jointly and severally for the debts of the partnership.  Anonymous (sleeping) partnership The anonymous partner is not known to the public and is liable to his or her partners only for his or her pro-rata share of the debts or eventual shortfall.  Commanditarian partnership The partner en commandite is purely a financial participant with a restricted liability -similar to a shareholder in a company. Such a partner is not known to the public. He or she shares in the profits and losses but his or her liability is restricted to his or her specific contribution; or an agreed amount. 2.3. THE CLOSE CORPORATION The close corporation is a business entity established in terms of the Close Corporation Act No. 69 of 1984, as amended ("the Close Corporation Act").

In optimizing day lighting, the features that are given the most prominence are basic acuity and performance issues such as veiling reflections, distribution, glare, and variety. The strategies that are used include increasing perimeter day light zones to maximize the usable day lighting area. In addition, an effort is made to allow daylight penetration high in a space (Yancey 9). The windows that are located high in a wall. Moreover, I try to reflect day light within the space to increase brightness within the room. Furthermore, Slope ceilings can be used to increase the amount of light that is getting into the room. Sloping the ceiling away from the penetration region enables it to increase the surface brightness of the ceiling (Ander 1). In addition, I also avoid directing beam day light into visual tasks. Excessive brightness in the space would result in poor visibility and discomfort. I also ensure that the light getting......

Retorisk Analyse

...klart og tydeligt. Der skal efter talens afslutning derfor ikke være tvivl om afsenderens mening, som i denne retoriske analyse vil være Anders Fogh Rasmussens. Ud over selve talekunsten i retorik, bliver der inden for emnet også lagt stor fokus på det at kunne appellere til modtagerens følelser og fornuft, at fange modtagerens opmærksomhed og være overbevisende på samme tid. I danskverdenen kalder man dette for logos, ethos og pathos, hvilket der er kendt som de tre appelformer. Men ud over brugen af appelformerne er argumentation, hvilket vil sige at forsøge at vinde tilslutning til et synspunkt gennem begrundelse, lige så vigtig i talens disposition. Ligeledes her findes der også forskellige slags af argumentationsformer, som jeg løbende i opgaven vil beskrive, når den forhenværende statsministeren benytter sig af dem. Argumentation i en tale til offentligheden er yderst vigtig, hvis man vil virke troværdig. Derfor har Stephen Toulmin udarbejdet en model for, hvordan argumenter er opbygget. Modellen er bygget op omkring tre grundlæggende og tre supplerende elementer. De grundlæggende - hvilket er påstand, belæg og hjemmel - vil altid være til stede i en argumentation, hvorimod de tre supplerende - som er rygdækning, gendrivelse og styrkemarkør – elementer, ikke altid er til stede i et argument. Den daværende statsminister Anders Fogh Rasmussen, holdt i 2003 en politisk nytårstale, som i Danmark en en traditionsfølge til det nye år. Nytårstalen opsummerer det......

My mikpunt is om n program te skryf wat op mense met ouderdomme wat varieer tussen 18 en ouer. Wat basiese sinne vat en dit omskakel in iets onleesbaar. Die program sal uit ‘n begintoneel drie ander tonele en ook ‘n eindtoneel bestaan. Die drie ander dele sal wees een vir die enkodeer, om die boodskap te dekodeer en om die gedekodeerde boodskap te vertoon. Die boodskappe sal gerig wees op ‘n geheime agent. Die ge-enkodeerde boodskap sal heeltemal onleesbaar wees en sal ‘n onderskepper wat dit probeer ontsyfer se vermoe toets. Die program sal die verskil maak in of die geheime agent die boodskap by sy gesagtes kan uitkry en of hy uitgevang word. As die boodskap onderskep word sal dit nie ontsyfer kan word met n ander kode nie want jy kort die regte sleutel. Die program sal toets of die gebruiker die kode dalk kan breek sonder die sleutel en dit kan n groot gevaar inhou vir die agent. Die enkodeer en die dekodeer sal dieselfde sleutel gebruik , kyk of jy dit kan ontsyfer. Liggaam Bestaande kodes/sleutels Daar is alreeds ‘n groot groep bestaande kodes. Daarom is dit moeilik om nuwe kodes te ontwikkel omdat ‘’n ander kode se sleutel dalk kan werk om jou ge-enkripteerde data te kan dekodeer. Die kode kan in sommige aspekte dieselfde wees maar die sleutel wat gebruik word moet verskil......

...settled and the risk of not getting the lease does not affect his decision anymore. d) For the purpose of this analysis we are assuming that the price of the option will remain constant. Otherwise another possible decision that Anders may make is whether to sell the option to third parties and eventually recover part of his investments. 1.b) Factors of uncertainty a) Legal suit outcome: the payoff of his decision is subject to the outcome of the lawsuit that may not allow the development of land parcels on East side of White Mountain. b) Reputation: the success of his initiative and the consequent return on his investment are conditioned by the popularity that the location will have, as for instance the quality of the snow and of the ski runs. Due to their nature, these are unpredictable factors that Anders cannot control. 1.c) Objective The objective of Recreational Properties is to maximise the payoff coming from this investment as well as minimising the risk of incurring eventual losses. Since it is a sunk cost, we are not considering the price of the option in our payoff calculations because it does not affect in any way the choice of the best possible decision. In addition, in order to understand the best decision we also assumed that Anders is neutral to risk, otherwise some considerations may change. 2) THE EMERGENCY MEETING 2.a) Best course of action under current circumstances In order to suggest the best course of action under the current circumstances, we......

Jeff Bezos – the Leader of Amazon

...demonstrations. This one small change granted Amazon with “great press coverage” (McGinn, 2013). McGinn (2013) further states that “it’s a small example of how he tries to reinvent how things are done.” Anders (2012) references Bezos as “the corporate chief that others most want to meet, emulate and deify.” Vision Jeff Bezos has one main vision – to make customers happy. This is reflected in the empty chair that Bezos leaves at the table during meetings. This empty chair “informs all attendees that they should consider that seat occupied by their customer, the most important person in the room” (Anders, 2012). Anders (2012) further explains that “if the empty chair is the ultimate boss at Amazon, then Bezos is its billionaire enforcer.” Amazon tracks its performance in many ways, with as many as 500 goals. Approximately 80% of those goals relate directly to customers (Anders, 2012). Bezos’s vision on customer service is based on what customers do and don’t want. For example, it has been shown that “a 0.1 second delay in page rendering can translate into a 1% drop in customer activity” (Anders, 2012). Customers want a page to load quickly or they will go elsewhere. Bezos is very strict when it comes to customer dissatisfaction such as “delays, defects and out-of-stock products” (Anders, 2012). Unlike most current companies and CEOs, Jeff Bezos’s focus is long term. He know that some investments will not become apparent for many years. In an interview with......
