Yes or No
Did communism threaten America’s internal security after World War II (WWII)? Some say yes, and some say no. In this article of Taking Sides John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, both history professors, claim that during the “Venona Project” of WWII the code-breakers of the U.S. army revealed a troubling number of U.S. government officials who were passing on secret information on to the Soviet Union and completely spoiled American comforts (Issue Summary). One of the officials that were caught was Harry White. Being one of the most powerful officials in the U.S. Treasury Department, White warned the KGB on how the diplomatic strategy of America could be upset. Another official that was caught was Lauchlin Currie. Currie was President Franklin Roosevelt’s most trusted assistants. He told the KGB about the investigation that the FBI had started on one of the Soviets’ American agents, Gregory Silvermaster. After acquiring this information this made it easy for Silvermaster to get out of dodge of the FBI and continue spying. Also, during the Manhattan Project, Klus Fuchs and Theodore Hall, both physicists, and technician David Greenglass transferred the compound formula for extracting bomb-grade uranium from ordinary uranium, the plans for production facilities, and the engineering principles for the “implosion” technique, which made the use of a plutonium using atomic bomb possible (Haynes, Klehr). Haynes and Klehr stated that, “Americans worried that a communist fifth column, more loyal to the Soviet Union than to the U.S., had moved into their institutions”, so by the 1950s, there was a public consensus on three points: Soviet espionage was a serious issue, Soviets were assisted by American Communist, and the U.S. had been betrayed by many senior government officials (Haynes, Klehr). When all is said and done, Cold War historians Haynes and Klehr believe…...

Getting to Yes

...“Getting To Yes” is an excellent book that is very easy to read. Every chapter has some excellent points that can always help negotiate an agreement without giving in completely. I am a manager of a directional drilling company in Midland. I have 39 employees that are under me. By reading this book it has given me plenty of tools to talk to my guys in situations where both of us need to compromise to get what we want. The first chapter talks about not bargaining over positions. Most people negotiate by staking out extreme positions in the beginning and then negotiating towards a middle ground compromise. This is a bad idea because right from the start both sides are committed to their position and will defend it to the end. This chapter talks about a new way of negotiation by negotiation on the merits. This is where you separate the people from the problem and focus on the interests not the positions. Then you invent mutual options for personal gain and insist that the results be based on some standard. The next section I enjoyed talks about separating the people from the problem. When negotiating you must make sure that both sides are involved in the negotiations at every state so they will know what is coming in the deal so the feel like they are making the decision and not being dictated to. When my employees come to me for a problem I have learned to talk it out with them and try to make them see it from my side as well. This has really helped because......

...requiring that school-girls receive Gardasil. Texas has recently become the first state mandating that all 11 or 12 year old girls attending public schools receive the HPV vaccine. That would mean that they would get it when they were entering the sixth grade. Considering that Texas has one of the highest rates of high school students who have had sex, requiring the HPV vaccine at an early age may be a good thing. According to the CDC 2005 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, fifty-two percent of Texas high school students reported that they have had sex versus a national median of forty-four percent of high school students in the rest of the United States. So what do we do? Do we spare those who may contract it the hospital bills, and their lives? Yes. Some conservatives are against this vaccination and would do anything to see that it is not required, using the flimsy claim that it will promote sexual promiscuity. They claim that if the vaccine is required, young women will base their abstinence choices on the fact that they will be protected from this one STD. It has also been suggested that the state's mandating of an STD-preventing drug would trample parental rights, depending on what the parents taught their children about sex and abstinence. Many parents are planning on refusing the vaccination requirement, stating that there is no need to vaccinate someone against something that can be one hundred percent avoided by abstinence.

...any CRM solution,” says Sharma. And from those priorities was born the concept of the Yes Bank Collaborative CRM (YCCRM). But Sharma’s in-house YCCRM wasn’t satisfied with just fulfilling these needs. Sharma felt that customer feedback was vital, and that the bank needed to embrace its customers. “The difference was collaboration. We wanted to make it collaborative by making the customer part of the system. We were keen on empowering the customer to share his ideas and feedback. The system has two logical separation models: a pre-acquisition and a post-acquisition service cycle for customers,” explains Sharma. It took six to eight months to develop and implement the solution in the first branch. The YCCRM banks very heavily on employee collaboration. “Information lying in islands, without being shared across, is of no use at all. Internal collaboration adds a productive edge to the information we capture,” says Sharma. The customer information captured in the YCCRM is mapped to blog-like entries made by employees. These entries include ideas, suggestions, and perceptions of the REAL CIO WORLD | j a n u a r y 1 5 , 2 0 0 9 35 Open to Collaboration 34 j a n u a r y 1 5 , 2 0 0 9 | REAL CIO WORLD IllUStratIo n by an Il t In tough economic times, when money is dear and customers dearer, the lack of a CRM system can play spoil sport.

Yes Men

...Change Proposals.) The Chamber feels that the benefits of this bill are unproven and that the U.S. economy cannot afford the financial effects that this bill, with its regulations, will bring on the American consumer, workers, and businesses. Briefly define the Yes Men, and discuss in what ways, if any, beliefs, attitudes, and values play into or relate to the Yes Men’s formation and tactic. The Yes Men consider themselves to be activist that exposes what they find to be the wrong doings of large companies. The Yes Men are Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno. They have developed a network of likeminded individuals that attempt to raise awareness about social issues that they consider to be a problem in society. They have impersonated corporate officials to give the media something they consider to be important to write about. They feel that they are helping society with their actions by exposing illegal or irresponsible activity that these large corporations are doing. They consider themselves crime fighters. Do you agree or disagree with the tactics of the Yes Men? What concepts from class and textbook readings thus far, particularly those in Chs. 3 and 4, support your position? While I find the hijinks of the Yes Men wildly entertaining I don’t really believe exposure by deception is necessarily the right way to go about it. Although I may not agree with their tactics they have certainly found a creative way to influence public opinion of the corporations they’ve......

...As far as competition to venues, such as the American Airline Arena or Cowboys Stadium, there would be none. At 14,000 seats, the multipurpose arena could not host any NBA or NHL games. So those events would still be held at the stadium where they are currently. The competition between venues simply would not exist. A multipurpose arena in downtown Fort Worth would give residents a fantastic new venue for upcoming events. With rodeos, graduations, concerts, and special events the possibilities are seemingly endless. With this new arena there will come a very beneficial increase in tourism. This increase in tourism will be the boost the city needs to help revitalize downtown and turn it into a great tourist attraction for everyone. Voting yes on the proposition is what the city of Fort Worth needs. References Gozalova, M., Shchikanov, A., Vernigor, A., & Bagdasarian, V. (2014). Sports tourism.

Getting to Yes

...Getting to Yes With no doubt, Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher and William Ury, could be considered one of the most influential and valuable classic books to have on your shelf. Its importance to the negotiation theory and practice is appreciated by millions of people who, by reading and analyzing this book, hope to become more efficient negotiators. I considered myself to be a part of the group that wants to, as William Ury said, take the walk from “no” to “yes”. In the proceeding paragraphs I will present my analysis of Getting to Yes and how I absorbed the essential ideas and skills used for effective negotiation. Early in the book, the readers are introduced to some concepts and mistakes that are commonly practiced by inexperienced and ineffective negotiators. These poor negotiators promote positional bargaining. The main idea that can be extracted is that we should strongly avoid bargaining over a position, whether it is over family, contracts or even peace treaties amongst nations. Positional bargaining is directly correlated to the fact that negotiations fail, because negotiators assume either too hard or too soft positions. The authors in this book explain to us that a good agreement is a wise agreement, one that is efficient, one that improves the relationship between the negotiators, ultimately producing a win-win agreement. A negotiator must take a position that is neither hard nor soft; but instead, should take an alternative approach. This is the type of......

They wish I'd leave. You know what kind of liability they face if you die while you're on status?” “Yes, I know.” “That's all they're worried about, you can tell. Always their liability-” Renee tuned out and returned her attention to the window, watching a contrail extrude itself across the sky. “Mrs. Norwood?” a nurse called. “Your husband's here.” Renee gave Mrs. Rivas another polite smile and left. 1b Carl signed his name yet another time, and finally the nurses took away the forms for processing. He remembered when he had brought Renee in to be admitted, and thought of all the stock questions at the first interview. He had answered them all stoically. “Yes, she's a professor of mathematics. You can find her in Who's Who.” “No, I'm in biology.” And: “I had left behind a box of slides that I needed.” “No, she couldn't have known.” And, just as expected: “Yes, I have. It was about twenty years ago, when I was a grad student.” “No, I tried jumping.” “No, Renee and I didn't know each other then.” And on and on.

However, she leaves the audience on an almost hopeful note when she shares her acceptance of her lot in life. She says, No man at all can be living forever, and we must be satisfied. This sentence is intended to move the audience by helping them understand that this character will survive. Shakespeare’s Macbeth is often considered one of literature’s greatest tragedies and is said to reveal much about human nature. Do you agree or disagree that the play conveys much about humanity or about the human experience? What, if anything, does the work suggest about human beings or society? Support your views with textual details and analysis. Yes Macbeth conveys something about humanity and/or about the human experience, but what makes the play great is the same thing that makes Shakespeare great: it is his poetry, his use of language, his genius, his eloquence. Macbeth contains some of the most beautiful poetry Shakespeare ever wrote. It seems to me that it is Most humans don't behave like Lord and Lady Macbeth.
