...After reading a couple chapters of this book I have came to the conclusion that it shows you a lot of strong points on how Thomas L Friedman thinks about the world. He explains why it all is happening and how the international system is transforming the world affairs. It also shows you all the things that he said in his book that they would come true and some of those things actually did come true. This books helps you understand about how globalization is working and why it is happening. It also shows and tells you how the world reacts to it and what the bad and good thing about globalization. In the first part of the book of the books it explains what the title ‘Lexus’ and ‘’olive tree’’ means. The Lexus stands for half the world emerging from the Cold War and people intent on building a better Lexus, modernizing economies in order to thrive globalization. The olive tree stands for the other half who are still caught up in the fight over who owns which "olive tree." The Lexus stands for the emerging of new things like 300 new Lexus being built everyday and people are moving on from the Cold War. The Olive tree represents our roots, anchors us, and identifies us. The Olive Tree also represents people fighting over who own what. That was the main thing in the beginning because it tells you what the title is all about. After that it goes into more detail about other things about globalization. It asks what a golden straightjacket it the golden straightjacket is an...

...A Great Story I read the books A Child Called It, The Lost Boy, and A Man Named Dave. The reason I choose these books is because they are true stories which keeps me interested. From the beginning it had me hooked. I had to keep reading because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I learned some things about these books but one thing stood out to me the most and that is how the legal system was very different back then than it is now. I believe Dave Pelzer is a very strong individual to be able to survive what he went through and I think it is great that he has become the person he is today. David James (Dave) Pelzer was born December 29th 1960 in San Francisco California. He is an American Author, best known for his 1995 memoir of childhood abuse, “A Child Called It”. Dave is born 3rd out of 5 boys. Dave wrote in his book that as a child, he was continually abused, mistreated, and beaten by his mother, who thought of it as a game. His teachers stepped in and on March 1973 Dave Pelzer was placed in foster care. He joined the Air Force in 1979 and later became an author. The book “A child called it” caused a dispute in his family, one of his brothers said it was not true, however his other brother who is an author wrote a book “A Brother’s Journey” which confirms Dave’s story. Dave has written two books, “A Child called it” and “The Lost Boy”, which is about his life after he was placed in foster care. Dave currently lives in a different state with...

...bir değerlendirmeye tabi tutmak için de artık yeterli bir süre geçmiş olduğu umulur. İşte bütün bu sebeplerden ve başka sebeplerden dolayı, ölümünden yedi yıl sonra Oğuz Atay’ın yaşama şansı çok artmış durumda. Bu ‘önsöz’ü, Atay’ın Günlük’ünü günlük bir gazetede yayımladığımız sıralarda yazdığım ‘önsöz’den bir parça ile bitirmek istiyorum: O, ömür boyunca hep “acele etmiş”tir; bu yüzden de hep “geç kalmış”tır. Sürekli bir panik vardır hayatında: Bir kitap okur, bir komedi seyreder, yorulur. Birileriyle birlikte olur, derdini anlatamaz, telâşlanır ve incinir. Küçük dertler, biryerlere ödenmesi gereken paralar, bazı şeylerin tamir masrafları hiç eksik olmaz ve bu panik duygusuna katkıda bulunurlar. Ve hep acele edilir. Bu acele içinde ölümden mi kaçılıyordur, yoksa kovalanıyor mudur ölüm, orası pek belli değildir. Öyle bir kaçma-kovalamaca oyunu işte. Ve işte böyle çılgınca koşuştururken Oğuz, sırtından hiç çıkartmadığı mizah zırhının tangırtısı da dünyayı tutar. Nefes nefese koşarken bize hepimizin derdini anlatmak için üç roman, bir öykü kitabı, bir oyun, bir de şu “kırık” günlüğü, yani beşbuçuk yapıtı bırakan bir adamı unutmak birçok kişinin işine gelebilir belki, ama onu “unutturmak”, işte o biraz zor olabilir. Ne yapılsa nafile bence; perde yeniden açılıyor işte. 11 Oğuz Atay, gerçeğin bağrından filizlenen oyundan, oyunun uzandığı ölümden, ölüm duyusundan doğan yaşantı damlasından, gözyaşında titreşen çılgın kahkahadan, delilikte tüneyen akıldan, akıldan türeyen gönülden......

...person who reads has had a chance to do each of them, and lots more, because when you read a book, you don’t just read it, you live it, you imagine yourself as the character of the book, you see yourself dealing with every situation that the character deals with and THAT EXACTLY is the magic of reading. Kristin Martz once said, “We lose ourselves in books. We find ourselves there too.” Now, the first question that might pop into your head is, “Why should I lose myself in a book when I can easily lose myself in my phone or computer?” The answer is that you might be able to lose yourself in your gadget but you won’t find yourself there. Books can make you imagine so much more, they can enhance your vocabulary, develop your personality and most important they can make you gizmos. Books think out of the little box which you are confined to because of your gadgets and will not only help you with your linguistic abilities but also with your communication skills. Conversations will always be interesting if you can talk well and that can only happen if you are well read. Books have a way to speak to you, in ways no one and nothing else can. They are the best remedy to boredom, to escape reality, to live a life which will be way more than interesting than your own. So, today, on the occasion of the world book day, I want to take the opportunity to urge all of you to just simply read. Go grab a book and lose yourself to it and I can vouch for it that exactly where you lost yourself,......

New IT investments continue to be staggering. Worldwide, over $2.5 trillion is invested in IT. In the U.S., over 50% of capital expenditures are related to IT. Information systems influence business processes, organizational structures, and the ways people do business, work, and communicate. Emerging technologies have triggered new forms of organization and business process innovation; they have also impacted organizational structure, culture, politics, decision making, and society as a whole. IT is transforming how physical products are designed, how services are bundled with products, and how individuals interact with businesses and with other individuals. A silent transformation is occurring as more and more physical products use embedded IT to improve customer experience and product performance. The pervasiveness of IT is expanding global trade and changing how and where work is performed. It is vital that future managers—in every area of business—have a...

...capabilities to break away but even more concerning was the fact that they would be on their own. For years the colonists fought for the right to have an opinion in their affairs but their voices went unheard. They were seen as children, which had to be told what to do rather than adults who actually were capable of standing on their own. It was as if the British government crippled there progress by making the Americans feel dependent on them for everything. Thomas Paine expressed this idea best when he stated " We may as well assert that because a child has thrived upon milk, that it is never meant to have meat, or that the first twenty years of our lives is to become a precedent for the next twenty." The people were so used to being mis treated that they were willing to accept it. Great Britain was their security blanket and they were scared to venture from under it. The American colonists were not willing to see if better existed. They didn't see the real fact which was that Britian had an interest in them and needed them more than the Americans needed Britain. Britain was a parent country that took full advantage of the situation. They didn't look out for the Americans best interest as a real parent should, so as Paine said "the more shame upon her conduct." Why be loyal to those who are not loyal to you and have such ulterior motives. Britain in all actuality was hindering the progress of the Americans. Americans lived in the shadow of Great Britain they were unable...
