What defines a good parent? Who defines a good parenting style? Society, through parenting books and magazines, has discussed this at length, and there are obviously varied opinions. There are certain attributes that are generally used consistently to define a good parenting style. It is not discipline or respect, but the characteristics that stand out for a good parent are trust, love, listening and understanding. Love gives confidence and makes people what they want to be. In Harper LeeÃ¢â¬â¢s book Ã¢â¬Å"To Kill a MockingbirdÃ¢â¬ , these key attributes are used to define the parenting style of Atticus, the father of the 2 children, Jem and Scout. I believe that the author has defined a good parent as someone who loves his/her children unconditionally, communicates openly with them, someone who is there for them, some one who teaches good morals and values, and someone who shows them right from wrong. Harper Lee has intelligently demonstrated these characteristics by cont rasting the parenting styles of Atticus (the good parent) vs. Bob Ewell, who plays the role of the antagonist in the book, and is portrayed as a bad parent. Both of these men are single parents, and the book therefore does not have much opportunity to view the role of the mother in the upbringing of the children. To illustrate this, the author has cleverly used the examples of 2 women, Calpurnia and Aunt Alexandra, to share her thoughts on the importance of a womanÃ¢â¬â¢s role in a childÃ¢â¬â¢s life.

The Greek philosopher Socrates was born c. 470/469 B.C., in Athens, and died in 399 B.C. To put this in the context of the other great men of his time, the sculptor Pheidias died c. 430; Sophocles and Euripides died c. 406; Pericles died in 429; Thucydides died c. 399; and the architect Ictinus completed the Parthenon in c. 438. Athens was producing the extraordinary art and monuments for which she would be remembered. Beauty, including personal, was vital. It was linked with being good. However, Socrates was ugly, according to all accounts, a fact that made him a good target for Aristophanes in his comedies. Who Was Socrates? Socrates was a great Greek philosopher, possibly the wisest sage of all time. He is famous for contributing to philosophy: Pithy sayingsThe Socratic method of discussion or dialogueSocratic irony A discussion of Greek democracy often focuses on a sadder aspect of his life: his state-mandated execution. Family Although we have many details about his death, we know little about the life of Socrates. Plato provides us the names of some of his family members: Socrates father was Sophroniscus (thought to have been a stonemason), his mother was Phaenarete, and his wife, Xanthippe (a proverbial shrew). Socrates had 3 sons, Lamprocles, Sophroniscus, and Menexenus. The oldest, Lamprocles, was about 15 at the time his father died. Death The Council of 500 [see Athenian Officials in the Time of Pericles] condemned Socrates to death for impiety for not believing in the gods of the city and for introducing new gods. He was offered an alternative to death, paying a fine, but refused it. Socrates fulfilled his sentence by drinking a cup of poison hemlock in front of friends. Socrates as Citizen of Athens Socrates is remembered chiefly as a philosopher and the teacher of Plato, but he was also a citizen of Athens, and served the military as a hoplite during the Peloponnesian War, at Potidaea (432Ã¢â¬â429), where he saved Alcibiades life in a skirmish, Delium (424), where he remained calm while most around him were in a panic, and Amphipolis (422). Socrates also participated in the Athenian democratic political organ, the Council of the 500. As a Sophist The 5th century B.C. sophists, a name based on the Greek word for wisdom, are familiar to us mostly from the writings of Aristophanes, Plato, and Xenophon, who opposed them. Sophists taught valuable skills, especially rhetoric, for a price. Although Plato shows Socrates opposing the sophists, and not charging for his instruction, Aristophanes, in his comedy Clouds, portrays Socrates as a greedy master of the sophists craft. Although Plato is considered the most reliable source on Socrates and he says Socrates was not a sophist, opinions differ on whether Socrates was essentially different from the (other) sophists. Contemporary Sources Socrates is not known to have written anything. He is best known for the dialogues of Plato, but before Plato painted his memorable portrait in his dialogues, Socrates was an object of ridicule, described as a sophist, by Aristophanes. In addition to writing about his life and teaching, Plato and Xenophon wrote about Socrates defense at his trial, in separate works both called Apology. The Socratic Method Socrates is known for the Socratic method (elenchus), Socratic irony, and the pursuit of knowledge. Socrates is famous for saying that he knows nothing and that the unexamined life is not worth living. The Socratic method involves asking a series of questions until a contradiction emerges invalidating the initial assumption. Socratic irony is the position that the inquisitor takes that he knows nothing while leading the questioning.

This also shows that she has great power, or at least thinks she does. Parris, terrified of not being accepted in his relatively new community decides against it. 18 Ã¢â¬Å"And what shall I say to them? That my daughter and my niece I discovered dancing like heathen in the forest? Ã¢â¬ Parris highlights his fear of not being accepted but also the fact that his own family are shunning accepted protocol, thereby not belonging. 19 Ã¢â¬Å"But if you trafficked with spirits in the forest I must know it, for surely my enemies will, and they will ruin be with it. Ã¢â¬ Parris is once again worried about never being accepted. 9 Ã¢â¬Å"There is a faction that is sworn to drive me from my pulpitÃ¢â¬ Parris is clear that he feels an outsider in his own community. The community he should effectively be head of seeing as it is theocratic and he is a reverend. 19 Ã¢â¬Å"I saw Tituba waving her arms over the fire when I came on you. Why was she doing that? Ã¢â¬ Parris questions the power Tituba has to change the girls because she isnÃ¢â¬â¢t trusted and is an outsider. 19 Ã¢â¬Å"She were swaying like a dumb beast over that fire! Ã¢â¬ Parris exclaims that not only is Tituba an outsider, she is also now compared to being an animal. 20 She always sings her Barbados songs, and we dance. Ã¢â¬ Abigail catches on quickly and realises that Tituba can easily be blamed for any indiscretions because she is already considered an outsider. Also shows that Abigail is manipulative and that she is the leader of the peer group of girls. 20 Ã¢â¬Å"I pray you feel the weight of truth upon you, for now my ministryÃ¢â¬â¢s at stake, my ministry and perhaps your cousinÃ¢â¬â¢s life. Ã¢â¬ Parris appeals to religion, the only thing he belongs to truly, and then fears not only for his daughterÃ¢â¬â¢s life but also him losing face in the community. 20 I have fought here three long years to bend these stiff-necked people to me, and now, just now when some good respect is rising for me in the parish, you compromise my character. Ã¢â¬ Parris is clear that the only thing that truly concerns him is reputation, name and being in charge. Not even his daughterÃ¢â¬â¢s life seems important. 20 Ã¢â¬Å"I would not be her slaveÃ¢â¬ ¦I will not black my face for any of them!

Ã¢â¬ Parris, petrified that the Putnams, people with great influence, will ruin him. 22 Ã¢â¬Å"They will howl me out of Salem for such corruption in my house. Ã¢â¬ Again, Parris is worried about being an outsider and lo sing face. 22 Ã¢â¬Å"Thomas Putnam felt that his own name and the honour of his family had been smirched by the village, and he meant to right matters however he could. You read "The Crucible Quotes" in category "Essay examples" Miller interjects in the drama and states that even Putnam worried about being an outsider 23 Ã¢â¬Å"So it is not surprising to find that many accusations against people are in the handwriting of Thomas PutnamÃ¢â¬ ¦Ã¢â¬ Putnam, as Miller explains, decided to fight out first rather than have any suspicions land on him, against his name. 23 Ã¢â¬Å"Tituba knows how to speak to the dead, Mr Parris. Ã¢â¬ Mrs Putnam, also along with Abigail, knows to put blame on the one true outsider Ã¢â¬â Tituba. 23 Ã¢â¬Å"Oh Abigail, what proper payment for my charity! Now I am undone. Parris, not worried solely about his daughterÃ¢â¬â¢s life/death but that his reputation is done. 24 Ã¢â¬Å"They will topple me with this!

TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re thirsty for your word, Mister! Ã¢â¬ Putnam, using his influence, pleads with Parris to say something to the community. He is also astute enough to realise he should pray on ParrisÃ¢â¬â¢ fear of exclusion. 4/25 Ã¢â¬Å"IÃ¢â¬â¢ll lead them in a psalm, but let you say nothing of witchcraft yet. I will not discuss it. Ã¢â¬ Parris as head of the theocratic society. 25 Ã¢â¬Å"Listen, now; if they be questioning us, tell them we danced Ã¢â¬â I told him as much already. Ã¢â¬ Abigail is now leading the peer group Ã¢â¬â calling the shots. 25 Ã¢â¬Å"WhatÃ¢â¬â¢ll we do? The village is out! The whole countryÃ¢â¬â¢s talkinÃ¢â¬â¢ witchcraft! TheyÃ¢â¬â¢ll be callinÃ¢â¬â¢ us witches, Abby! Ã¢â¬ Mary Warren shows that she is frightened of the consequences of going outside of the communityÃ¢â¬â¢s main traditions/culture and that she is trying to go against Abigail, unsuccessfully 25 Abby weÃ¢â¬â¢ve got to tellÃ¢â¬ ¦witcheryÃ¢â¬â¢s a hanginÃ¢â¬â¢ errorÃ¢â¬ ¦youÃ¢â¬â¢ll only be whipped for dancinÃ¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬ Mary Warren tries to use high modal language to make a stand against the head of the peer group, again highlighting her fear. 26 Ã¢â¬Å"Oh, youÃ¢â¬â¢re a great one for lookinÃ¢â¬â¢ arenÃ¢â¬â¢t you Mary Warren? What a great peeping courage you have! Ã¢â¬ Conflict between Abigail and Mary Warren Ã¢â¬â putting her down and trying to cast her out of her peer group. Makes Mary Warren want to please her/win her over again, to stay with them. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s safer that way. 26 Ã¢â¬Å"BETTY: You drank blood, Abby! You didnÃ¢â¬â¢t tell him that! ABIGAIL: Betty, you never say that again! You will never Ã¢â¬â BETTY: Ã¢â¬ ¦you drank a charm to kil l Goody Proctor. Ã¢â¬ The conflict in the peer group 26 Ã¢â¬Å"Now look you. All of you. We danced. And Tituba conjured Ruth PutnamÃ¢â¬â¢s dead sisters. And that is all. And mark this. Let either of you breathe a word, or the edge of a word, about the other things, and I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring a pointy reckoning that will shudder you. Ã¢â¬ The main threat that Abigail uses to stay in charge of the peer group and have people fear being an outsider. 26 I can make you wish you had never seen the sun go down! Ã¢â¬ Again, Abigail threatens to achieve her purpose, and have people fear going against her. 27 Ã¢â¬Å"He need not have been a partisan of any faction in the townÃ¢â¬ ¦he was the kind of man Ã¢â¬â powerful of body, even-tempered and not easily ledÃ¢â¬ ¦Ã¢â¬ Miller introduces Proctor as someone who was able to stay outside of the peer group and community and had the strength to remain true to his own convictions. 27 Ã¢â¬Å"Abby, I never give you hope to wait for me. Ã¢â¬ Proctor softly tells Abigail that their relationship is done and that he hasnÃ¢â¬â¢t wanted any more. 8 Ã¢â¬Å"Or did I dream that? ItÃ¢â¬â¢s she put me out, you cannot pretend it were you. I saw your face when she put me out, and you loved me then and you do now! Ã¢â¬ Abigail pleads with Proctor showing what is driving her actions. Also highlights that Proctor has gone outside of his marriage. 29 Ã¢â¬Å"I have hardly stepped off my farm this seven-monthÃ¢â¬ . Proctor makes it clear he is physically outside of his community and as a result can also be removed otherwise. 29 Ã¢â¬Å"She is blackening my name in the village! She is telling lies about me! She is a cold, snivelling woman, and you bend to her! AbigailÃ¢â¬â¢s tension/conflict with Goody Proctor. Worried about her name and reputation in the community. 30 Ã¢â¬Å"Francis had originally rented the land, and one theory has it that, as he gradually paid for it and raised his social status, there were those who resented his rise. Ã¢â¬ Miller highlights that land ownership meant a lot for the community at the time 31 Ã¢â¬Å"I am sick of meetings; cannot the man turn his head without he have a meeting? Ã¢â¬ Proctor is discontent with the community and the way they must belong 33 Ã¢â¬Å"This will set us all to arguinÃ¢â¬â¢ again in the society, and we thought to have peace this year. Rebecca, the voice of reason, tries to placate the community; to make them all belong. 33 Ã¢â¬Å"We vote by name in this society, not by acreage. Ã¢â¬ Proctor, another voice of reason, says this about how they should belong in the community 33 Ã¢â¬Å"I never heard you worried so on this society, Mr Proctor. I do not think I saw you at Sabbath meeting since snow flew. Ã¢â¬ Putnam accuses Proctor of being an outsider because he doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t participate in the religious aspect of their theocratic society. 33 Ã¢â¬Å"There are many others who stay away from church these days because you hardly ever mention God any more. Proctor claims that there is no purpose in church since Parris arrived. He makes it unhappy and all about hell 34 Ã¢â¬Å"I regard that six pound a year as part of my salary. I am paid little enough without I spend six pound on firewood. Ã¢â¬ Parris is materialistic Ã¢â¬â doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t want to do anything unless it benefits him financially 34 Ã¢â¬Å"I do not fathom it, why am I persecuted here? I cannot offer one proposition but there be howling riot of argument. I have often wondered if the Devil be in it somewhere; I cannot understand you people otherwise. Parris using repeated personal pronoun to show that he feels persecuted in the society 34 Ã¢â¬Å"I do not wish to be put out like the cat whenever some majority feels the whim. Ã¢â¬ Parris uses simile to prove how he feels a complete outsider and the power of the community when someone does not belong. 35 Ã¢â¬Å"There is either obedience or the church will burn like Hell is burning! Ã¢â¬ Parris is clear in his mentality that you are either with the church or you are not 35 Ã¢â¬Å"Ã¢â¬ ¦while there were no witches then, there are Communists and capitalists nowÃ¢â¬ ¦[who believe] that each side are at work undermining the other. Miller draws a direct parallel with the happenings in Salem and the communist fear in USA 39 Ã¢â¬Å"They must be; they are weighted with authority. Ã¢â¬ Hale uses this metaphor early on to show that he has great authority and even though an outsider is granted respect almost immediately. 40 Ã¢â¬Å"How can it be the Devil? Why would he choose my house to strike? We have all manner of licentious people in the village! Ã¢â¬ Parris wants to find himself a part of the community, particularly because he is the religious leader, but he does so by separating himself from the rest. 44 I never called him! Tituba, TitubaÃ¢â¬ ¦Ã¢â¬ Abigail making the first of her allegations against Tituba and in doing so proving her strength in the peer group. People see what she is capable of. 45 Ã¢â¬Å"She made me do it! She made Betty do it! Ã¢â¬ High modal accusation towards Tituba. 45 Ã¢â¬Å"You beg me to conjure! She beg me make charmÃ¢â¬ ¦Ã¢â¬ Tituba tries to fight against the allegations but is already an outsider and hasnÃ¢â¬â¢t got the chance to win. 46 Ã¢â¬Å"Sometimes I wake and find myself standing in the open doorway and not a stitch on my body! I always hear her laughing in my sleep. I hear her singing her Barbados songs and tempting me withÃ¢â¬ ¦Ã¢â¬ Abigail again reinforces her position and shows how strong she is in terms of leading the peer group; sways the community against Tituba. 46 Ã¢â¬Å"You will confess yourself or I will take you out and whip you to your death, Tituba! Ã¢â¬ Parris gives Tituba a fairly unfair ultimatum and shows again that being an outsider is bad. He also implies that you need to be a strong person to stand by your own name and convictions in this community. 46 Ã¢â¬Å"No, no, donÃ¢â¬â¢t hang Tituba! I tell him I donÃ¢â¬â¢t desire to work for him, sir. Tituba realises she must go against the truth and convictions to stay alive. She goes along with AbigailÃ¢â¬â¢s stories and makes it seem as though she wants to stop. 46 HALE: You have confessed yourself to witchcraft, and that speaks a wish to come to HeavenÃ¢â¬â¢s side. TITUBA: Oh, God bless you, Mr Hale! HALE: Ã¢â¬ ¦You are GodÃ¢â¬â¢s instrument put in our hands toÃ¢ â¬ ¦cleanse our village. Hale uses the metaphor to prove that people within the community believe Abigail, but also that Tituba has the opportunity to belong for the first time. 48 Ã¢â¬Å"I want the light of God, I want the sweet love of Jesus!Ã¢â¬ ¦ I saw Sarah Good with the Devil! I saw Goody Osburn with the Devil! I saw Bridget Bishop with the Devil! Ã¢â¬ The calling out Ã¢â¬â Abigail starts accusing and setting people as outsiders for nothing. 49 Ã¢â¬Å"A fireplace is at the left, and behind it a stairway leading upstairsÃ¢â¬ ¦he swings a pot out of the fire and smells it. Ã¢â¬ Miller paints a domestic picture and then juxtaposes it with the frosty portrayal of marriage 51 Ã¢â¬Å"ItÃ¢â¬â¢s as warm as blood beneath the clods. Ã¢â¬ An interesting description of the unseasonably warm ground Proctor provides his wife. 52 PROCTOR: If the crop is good IÃ¢â¬â¢ll buy George JacobÃ¢â¬â¢s heifer. How would that please you? ELIZABETH: Aye, it would. PROCTOR: [with a grin] I mean to please you, Elizabeth. ELIZABETH: [it is hard to say] I know it, John. Highlights both ProctorÃ¢â¬â¢s need to belong in the marriage and ElizabethÃ¢â¬â¢s difficulty 52 Her back is turned to him. He turns to her and watches her. A sense of their separation rises. The stage directions highlights the distance between Proctor and his wife. 52 Ã¢â¬Å"She frightened all my strength awayÃ¢â¬ ¦it is a mouse no moreÃ¢â¬ ¦ she says to me Ã¢â¬ËI must go to SalemÃ¢â¬ ¦I am an official of the court! Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬ Elizabeth talks about how Mary Warren has changed as a result of her being a part of the group 53 Aye, it is a proper court they have nowÃ¢â¬ ¦there be fourteen people in jail nowÃ¢â¬ ¦and theyÃ¢â¬â¢ll be tried, and the court have power to hang them too, she says. Ã¢â¬ Elizabeth recounts what Mary Warren has told her about the court and the exclusion of women from society 53 Ã¢â¬Å"The townÃ¢â¬â¢s gone wild, I think. She speak of Abigail, and I thought she were a saint, to hear her. Abigail brings the other girls into the court, and where she walks the crowd will partÃ¢â¬ ¦Ã¢â¬ Repetition of AbigailÃ¢â¬â¢s name in ElizabethÃ¢â¬â¢s recount of MaryÃ¢â¬â¢s story highlights that the focus is all around her at the moment. 53 Ã¢â¬Å"Oh, it is a black mischief. Proctor uses this metaphor to describe what influence Abigail has on this society, and how others are flocking to Ã¢â¬Å"belongÃ¢â¬ 53 Ã¢â¬Å"John, if it were not Abigail that you must go to hurt, would you falter now? I think not. Ã¢â¬ Elizabeth has not forgiven Proctor for his indiscretion and questions him about who and what he might belong to now. 55 Ã¢â¬Å"You will not judge me more, ElizabethÃ¢â¬ ¦you forget nothinÃ¢â¬â¢ and forgive nothinÃ¢â¬â¢. Ã¢â¬ Proctor attempts to use high modal language to demand ElizabethÃ¢â¬â¢s respect but again, he is honest in showing that he no longer truly feels as though he belongs in his marriage. 5 Ã¢â¬Å"I come into a court when I come into this house! Ã¢â¬ Darkly comical metaphor used by Proctor to indicate he feels judged which limits his feelings of belonging in the marriage. 55 Ã¢â¬Å"Let you look sometimes for the goodness in me, and judge me not. Ã¢â¬ Again, focussing on the judgement he feels rather than belonging. 55 Ã¢â¬Å"I do not judge you. The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you. I never thought you but a good man, John. Ã¢â¬ Elizabeth tries to set Proctor right and uses the Ã¢â¬Å"heartÃ¢â¬ metaphor to imply he is the only one judging his actions and that he is limiting himself from belonging. 5 As though to compensate, Mary Warren goes to Elizabeth with a small rag doll. Miller makes it clear that the symbol used as Goody ProctorÃ¢â¬â¢s downfall is made known early on 56 Ã¢â¬Å"We must all love each other now, Goody Proctor. Ã¢â¬ Mary Warren says this in reaction to the strange situations they are now faced w ith 56 Ã¢â¬Å"I never knew it before, I never knew anything before. When she come into the court I say to myself, I must not accuse this womanÃ¢â¬ ¦but thenÃ¢â¬ ¦I feel a misty coldness climbinÃ¢â¬â¢ up my backÃ¢â¬ ¦and all at once I remembered everything she done to me! Mary Warren highlights the feelings that can overtake them during the court 57 Ã¢â¬Å"But the proof, the proof! Ã¢â¬ Proctor wants to be practical here. 58 Ã¢â¬Å"You must see it, sir, itÃ¢â¬â¢s GodÃ¢â¬â¢s work we do. Ã¢â¬ Hale, and Mary Warren both proclaim this, referring to religion and what this society is based on. 58 Ã¢â¬Å"The DevilÃ¢â¬â¢s loose in Salem, Mr Proctor; we must discover where heÃ¢â¬â¢s hiding! Ã¢â¬ Hale, again referring to religion and the society 59 Ã¢â¬Å"There is a promise made in any bed Ã¢â¬â and she may dote on it now Ã¢â¬â I am sure she does Ã¢â¬â and thinks to kill me, then to take my place.

Bring Your Own device is a concern policy of employees conveying personally owned nomadic devices to work and utilizing those devices to entree privileged company resources like electronic mail. file waiters and databases every bit good as personal applications and informations. The types of devices that employees may utilize are smart cell phones and laptops. The world is that there is no simple solution when it comes to modulating BYOD. Every organisation is different and there are figure of different factors that have to be taken into consideration. First a company will hold to make up ones mind which employees will be allowed entree. every bit good as the types of devices they are traveling to back up. Ã¢â¬Å"Forrester Research reported in July of 2011 that about 60 per centum of companies allow employees to utilize personal devices for work. Ã¢â¬Å"Bring Your Own Device ( BYOD ) Ã¢â¬ policies allow employees maximal pick and flexibleness but raise new challenges in keeping the personal privateness of the user. managing and procuring valuable corporate information assets. and supplying IT with an unpredictable and inconsistent nomadic environment. There are besides nomadic engineering considerations. while nomadic devices are exceling Personal computers and laptops as a userÃ¢â¬â¢s primary calculating platform. they do hold limited entree to power. web and hardware resources. Inventing a BYOD solution that will back up both personal and concern functions requires attending to all of these challengesÃ¢â¬ . The paper will be to place most of the hazards associated with companies leting personal devices in the work topographic point to entree company information. I will besides show the downside of the BYOD policy and the affects to the company and the employee. There are legion hazards associated with the BYOD policy many of them are security related the loss or larceny of a nomadic phone could take to confidential informations being stolen and break of services this could ache the company lawfully every bit good as financially. Data is ascertainable means the device and the information in the personally owned device are capable to judicial proceeding and the user has no right to privateness.

The responsibility to continue and unwrap electronically stored information is normally initiated by a judicial order. a find petition. or cognition of a pending or future legal preceding that is likely to necessitate deriving entree to the electronically stored information. Determining what information is required for the affair. and so happening that dataÃ¢â¬â¢s location across webs and archives is a immense challenge for legal and Information Tec hnology sections. particularly if pro-active planning is incorporated. The range of informations to be preserved or disclosed is determined by the capable affair of the difference. and the jurisprudence and procedural regulations that a tribunal or other authorization will finally use to decide the difference. In general. all information is potentially ascertainable if it is relevant to the disputed dealing. Failure to continue or unwrap ascertainable informations may ensue in serious punishments. Employees need to be made cognizant that there is no privateness policy and the information may be used in judicial proceeding. Litigation expensive. when an employer allows multiple devices to be used this drives up the cost of attorney fees when judicial proceeding is necessary. If there is a information breach an insurance company may non cover the claim if the BYOD plan is non involved in the policy it may be merely for corporate devices and non personal 1s. Covering with a information breach is expensive and clip consuming if found guilty the attorneies f ee and punishments can single-foot up a immense measure.

More sophisticated IT departments may bespeak the installing of extra nomadic device direction package agents to widen corporate IT reach into any application and functionality of your device. While security and manageableness are legitimate concerns for the company. most BYOD plans rely on IT tools that donÃ¢â¬â¢t make a clear separation between personal and corporate informations and applications. As a consequence. in instance of unauthorised entree a existent or presumed state of affairs the whole content of the device is more or less likely to be deleted and the device will be unserviceable. In respects to privateness. from a legal point of view the fact that the employee owns the device holds no bearing in the event of judicial proceeding. As mentioned earlier sing find. the tribunal may necessitate forensic reappraisal of all devices in connexion with the judicial proceeding. An employee take parting in a companyÃ¢â¬â¢s BYOD plan may be asked to bring forth their personal devices for a 3rd party scrutiny. The employee will hold to do any personal information stored in the device accessible. This besides includes the history of web sites visited ; vocals and films download and played transcripts of fiscal minutess and statements every bit good as personal contacts.

This extends to the personal information of any other household member or 3rd party who may portion the usage of the device. Personal informations stored is non the merely privateness concern for the employee. location and on-line activity may be exposed to the employer every bit good. A chief characteristic of nomadic device direction package is the ability to track in existent clip the location of the device. The characteristic is designed to assist find whether a device is lost or stolen before a distant lock or rub is accessed. It can besides be used to selectively disable camera and mike when a device enters into a restricted company country to forestall sensitive informations loss. Although non intended for this usage. the IT section may be able to track your whereabouts anyplace and anytime and the employee may non be cognizant of it. In add-on when a personal device is connected to the corporate wireless local area network web. there is a possibility online activity is being monitored and filtered to follow with ordinances and to protect the company from liability from improper usage. *Enterasys study Feb 2012Are Mobile Devices Risky Business?

The CIO must measure what opportunities does this policy nowadays and determine if it is clip to switch cogwheels to application scheme. reexamine the organizationÃ¢â¬â¢s ends. and strategize how applications can assist accomplish them. In todayÃ¢â¬â¢s market place. processes occur at a faster gait than in the yesteryear. the practical work force is increasing. and competition is ever seeking to remain in front. Efficient nomadic applications can travel informations closer to the beginning. which improves gross revenues describing. streamlines procedures and blessings. and provides on-the-go-data to identify users. Integrating a nomadic application scheme creates new ways to work. and allows redundancy and flexibleness that concerns can number on during unfavourable conditions. catastrophes or other breaks.

Recommendations for a solution to some of the negative issues associated with the BYOD plan would be to hold a strong company policy. The followers is a list of countries that should be addressed: The policy should be able to back up assorted platforms there are many devices that use different runing systems and they should besides include societal networking platforms. The employer should maintain path of what devices are being used and the applications. these two points should be tested. If budget allows the company should make an application shop for the employee to download. nevertheless package licensing will hold to be addressed. Access control is highly of import user watchwords should be issued and controlled. there could be employee entree cards distributed and in the hereafter biometries could be introduced. Awareness. educate employees on how to responsibly protect their device and usage company informations. Employees who understand the hazards and the effects are less li kely to mishandle information. Security package is of import in the event a phone is lost or stolen. Possibly to even end entree. Employees should be made cognizant that their device is capable to be locked or wiped. Email security is besides of import because it is on a regular basis used so package to protect electronic mail messages is indispensable. Out sourcing is an option if the IT section staff can non manage all undertakings involved. perchance utilizing cloud if executable. Continuous spots and updates to maintain up with newer versions of package used. Out sourcing IT direction is a feasible option if the budget will let. This will relieve some of the force per unit area on the IT squad. besides maintaining with operating systems and new engineering is unreassuring. Security wise unless IT safe is wholly trained to do of import determinations sing the web and legal determinations sing lockup and pass overing devices. this should be done by an expert. Monitoring of device use and applications can besides go a undertaking along with proficient support like altering watchwords and upgrading applications. so it might be in accompanies best involvement to reassign the liability and hazard to person else at a cost.

Bullets Over Broadway Bullets Over Broadway is definitely something you've never seen before. It's hard to imagine any other writer in the entire world coming up with the basic plot that drives the film. Woody Allen takes a humerous concept and allows it to grow more absurd and surreal with each passing moment. And somehow, by film's end, the ridiculous seems acceptable. The film has been referred to as a comic take on the themes explored in Crimes and Misdemeanors, and while a comparison is interesting, I don't necessarily think it holds up. Bullets Over Broadway is an entirely unique film, inhabiting a bizarre universe completely its own. While both films feature the killing of an innocent, if annoying, female character, the comparison really ends there. Besides, in this film, the character pays for his murder. Perhaps the more interesting question the film raises is this: should artists really be willing to kill (or die for) their art? Of course, you'd never have time to ponder this question while in the midst of viewing the film. There's simply too much else going on, too many characters and plotlines to allow you the time to reflect on the underlying questions the film raises about art. And this is for the best; after all, the film is a comedy. Allen stayed behind the camera for this film, marking the first time he decided not to act in one of his own comedies. Though he'd not appeared in any of his three dramatic films (Interiors, September, Another Woman), he had always made an appearance of some sort in each of his comedies. It's an intersting choice that has no real explanation, but definitely ends up being the right decision. I say this only because John Cusack is wonderful in his Woody-ish lead role. You don't miss Allen, primarily because of Cusack's built-in charm and the great chemistry he has with both Dianne Wiest and Chazz Palminteri. Both Wiest and Palminteri were nominated for supporting Oscars (Wiest won the award), and both definitely benefited from Cusack's performance. Bullets Over Broadway tells the story of a young, seemingly talented playwright, David Shayne (Cusack). As the movie begins, he's having problems raising the funding for his latest play. In addition, he has no cast to speak of, and a great deal of self-doubt. His agent finally finds a producer, who happens to be a powerful gangster. The aging gangster, Rocco,agrees to back the play -- as long as his young girlfriend, Olive (Jennifer Tilly) is allowed to play a major role. Cusack agrees without realizing what he's in for. The girl is loud, obnoxious, ditzy and annoying. In addition, she's an absolutely horrible actress in every imaginable way. Of course, Cusack can't back out on the deal, as the gangster makes very clear. As the play begins to take shape, the gangster sends a fellow gangster, Cheech (played by Palminteri), to supervise the rehearsals (i.e. to make sure no one cuts Olive's lines or mistreats her). This masterful set up allows Allen and co-writer Douglas McGrath numerous comedic opportunities which they take full advantage of. The grand lady of the theatre, Helen Sinclair (Dianne Wiest), the over-eating thespian (Jack Warden), the gangster's moll, and the stuffy words of the questionably talented playwright come together in the near-perfect rehearsal scenes. In time, Cusack's playwright falls head over heels for the pretentious theatre star, and they carry on a love affair, all the while making plans for her big comeback to the stage. Wiest often plays the rather obnoxious actress to absurd lengths of characterization, and it works every time; in a film full of comic roles and stereotypes, she all but steals the show. The brilliance of Bullets Over Broadway is that it keeps getting more and more ridiculous, without ever seeming too far-fetched to lose its audience. The final masterstroke of the film's plot(and perhaps its funniest twist) comes when Palminteri, tired of hearing the stiff, stilted dialogue of the play, begins to make suggestions at rehearsals. Cusack is at first outraged, and threatens to quit, but he eventually realizes that the gangster's suggestions are actually quite good. Palminteri's gangster turns out to be a genius; a raw, natural playwright who

Self Evaluation and Management Self evaluation and personal management have become some of the important components that assist to develop self esteem, identify performance abilities and establish better relationship with other people. Studies indicate that self evaluation goes beyond the view an individual has himself or herself to a continuous and constant determination of progress and personal growth.Advertising We will write a custom essay sample on Self Evaluation and Management specifically for you for only $16.05 $11/page Learn More Cals and Smircich (1999, p.650) argue that self evaluation can be lowered or enhanced by the behaviour of an individual who is psychologically close. Their argument advances the view that that happiness and self actualization are found in feeling being loved by others and by experiencing the sense of approval from the people around us. As this paper analyses, self evaluation and personal management are vital for building personal relationship with other s and for coexisting with others in the society. It is on this front that this paper succinctly analyses the concepts of self evaluation and management, and how they impact on relationships and the society. This paper takes a critical analysis on self examination in order for an individual to best understand her/himself with regard to relating and managing other people around us. The paper thus outlines critical self reflexivity, its importance, and the held assumptions between an individual and those around. It also looks into the organizational values and the presumed values and personality traits that develop between an individual and an organization. It asserts the importance of an organization and person fit as well as slightly looking at the relationship between and individual and the environment. The managers of organizations should demonstrate more ethical traits and humanity as they go about managing others since the interest of the led is equally very important. This paper employs the approach of self reflexivity which makes it possible foe an individual to develop sensitivity and pay attention to the views of others. A self reflective person listens to an inner voice from the people who speak through his mind and he / she critically puts self into the shoes of others thus being able to feel for their needs and act appropriately. Abraham Tesser advances in his self-evaluation maintenance theory that relationship with other people plays a pivotal role of influencing individual to carry out self-evaluation (Caproni Arias 1997, p. 294). He posits that many individuals feel are more careful when relating with friends than with people they do not know.Advertising Looking for essay on business economics? Let's see if we can help you! Get your first paper with 15% OFF Learn More Personal relationship with others of blood relation, members of our communities or friends involves sharing different values, principles, beliefs, practice s, aspirations and actions. These impacts on personal behaviour and the perceptions, opinions and views individuals hold on other people. There must be peaceful coexistence in order for one to relate well with others and even assume a position of control over others in the society. Therefore this matter requires full knowledge of self image and understanding of the needs of the people around us, and how our decisions and actions. herefore an individual should develop knowledge on critical reflexivity which is an objective humanistic multidisciplinary understanding of actions, decisions and thoughts with regard to those around us. To be critically reflective means that one is able to posses objective understanding of reality as a basis of thinking more critically about the impact of our assumptions, values and actions on others (Gergen 1994, p. 237). However, it is possible to have self reflexivity in order to be able to manage the people around us and our organizations because as we think critically on our values and behaviour, we are able to understand the effects of these behaviours on others therefore we can develop more ethical attributes for handling others (Caproni Arias 1997, p. 294). The major aim of self reflexivity is not just to enable the managers develop good and effective managerial skills but it is also to help them become moral practitioners and critical thinkers. Management Managers are role models in the society and therefore influence people in the societies through their actions positively or negatively. Studies indicate that managers face a lot of myriad issues and quite often locked in the quagmires of accelerating controversies such as politicised working environments (Cunliffe 2001, p. 356). Therefore it is only imperative that the managers be able to develop the critical self reflexivity which provides a remedy and cushioning mechanism. In addition, it is important to note that decisions made by managers only count on condition that t he needs of others are considered and efficiency is prioritised in order to maximise on the gains and achievements of the organizations (Cunliffe, 2004, p.410). Moreover, one most important and rational way of management is to retain the present management traditions and be able to discover the shortcomings of the mentalities and assumptions. This will ensure that managers become less vulnerable in being complacent in the decision making steps they take, and develop bigger perception of the various views and possible opportunities with a view to developing new methods of transforming unnecessary old ways of management (Jurecic 2011, p. 17).Advertising We will write a custom essay sample on Self Evaluation and Management specifically for you for only $16.05 $11/page Learn More In addition, when exhibiting critical self reflexivity, a manager is able to understand self image of existential with aim to become better, acquire the relational understanding of the people around and posses the paraxial consciousness of self such that one is able to draw acceptable norms based on the past and future situations and opportunities (Cunliffe 2001, p. 356). This is a philosophy of motivated practice where all managers and leaders take responsibility of their own organizational achievements and realities. In an attempt to achieve the goals of an organization by any manager or administrator, it is always very important for the manager to fully understand the goals, values, principles, policies and regulations that define the particular organization to its true identity. Thereis need for managers to know which kind of employees they should hire into their organizations as workers, partners or even associates (Morley 2007, p. 3). For instance, a student may not be admitted to a given college or university if she or he is not qualified to join such a learning institution. Furthermore, a student may as well not be admitted to read a course in a faculty w here she or he does not have the prerequisite studies for the entry. This is important because both the organization and the individual should profess certain degree of values and understandings based on a common purpose in order to create and achieve a smoothly running system and avoid unnecessary challenges while maximising on achievements (Morely, 2007, p.112). To sum up, the discussion has shown that people should relate closely and coexist with each other calmly since they share values, behaviour and inspirations developed from mutual interaction. This plays an important role in self evaluation and personal management. Besides, managers should not only look at a person and his or her past in terms of environment and experience but should also look at the extra role and interest of the person they would wish to recruit into their organization.

Advantages of E-commerce - Essay Example Another advantage involves closeness to remotely located stores. Unlike offline platforms that are usually situated in different geographical areas, e-commerce is only a click away. It suggests customers from all parts of the country or a certain geographical region can access the goods and services without problems. On that account, it creates new markets that generate employment for individuals who are tech-savvy. Similarly, because e-commerce requires no physical store, it reduces the cost on overheads that often burdens most retailers. Overall, it ensures all persons involved profit directly from the online sales.Ã Lowering of prices online is equally an interesting advantage when dealing with e-commerce. It means there is availability for both deals and coupons that help the buyer. On the other hand, vendors usually find an opportunity for bidding businesses when using the electronic method.
