In many instances fraternities are limited to male membership such as the Dutch “Alpinisten Vereniging Gelderlan Midden” but this is not always the case, and there is mixed male and female, and even wholly female, fraternities for example, for general fraternities: The Grande Loge Mixte De France, The Honorable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons, The Grande Loge Féminine de France, the various Order of Odd Fellows, and The Order of the Eastern Star.

Fraternities can be organized for many purposes, including university education, work skills, ethics, ethnicity, religion, politics, charity, chivalry, other standards of personal conducts, asceticism, service, performing arts, family command of territory, and even crime. The is almost always an explicit goal of mutual support, and while there have been fraternal orders for the well-off there also have been many fraternities for those in the lower ranks of society, especially for national or religious minorities. Trade unions also grew out of fraternities such as “The Knights of Labors”.

The ability to organize freely, apart from the institutions of government and religion, was a fundamental part and the establishment of the modern world. In living the Enlightenment, Margaret C. Jacobs showed the development of Jurgen Habermas’ “public space” in the 17th century Netherlands was closely related was closely related to the establishment of Lodges of Freemasons.

Captive by Brillante Mendoza

...And there were also exclusive killings by the Abu Sayyaf because of the thought that some hostages would give them no value. With this horror, the hostages still try to believe that one day, they will be saved. ‘Captive’ is a French-Filipino-German-British co-production directed by Brillante Ma. Mendoza. It is freely drawn from Gracia Burnham’s 2003 book, “In the Presence of My Enemies,” which details her and her husband Martin’s 377-day ordeal at the hands of the Abu Sayyaf. Mendoza weaves a fictional account of the infamous abduction that has actually, the tug and horror of the real thing. And as a result, it was considered as the most realistic cinematic treatment yet of Muslim terrorism. ‘Captive’ is every bit a cinema vérité. Brillante Mendoza shot this film on the natural setting, mixing his actors with everyday people, and with little artificial lighting. It is effective in such a way that it conveys candid realism. The scenes in the movie are not over-dramatized and every moment on the screen, whether it reflects cruelty or compassion, it feels unnervingly real. The fact that it is a literal recreation of the 2001 hostage incident gives its vérité treatment. Also, the depiction of the Abu Sayyaf members by Mendoza is very interesting. He portrays them with balance and humanity that is unusual in a story which Hollywood would have told as simple good versus bad. Mendoza showed that despite the wrongdoings of the Abu Sayyaf, there is still good present deep inside......

Sos-440 Final Paper

...in both Northern Ireland and the Republic. (Bew, Gibbon, & Patterson, 2002) The Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) is the most violent of the Islamic separatist groups operating in the southern Philippines and claims to promote an independent Islamic state in western Mindanao and the Sulu Archipelago. Split from the Moro National Liberation Front in the early 1990s, the group currently engages in kidnappings for ransom, bombings, assassinations, and extortion. (Banlaoi, 2004) The ASG operates mainly in Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi Provinces in the Sulu Archipelago and has a presence on Mindanao. Members also occasionally travel to Manila. It seeks a separate Islamic state for the country's Muslim minority. Its first leader was Abdurajak Janjalani, a Philippine Muslim who fought in the international Islamist brigade in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation. Mohammed Jamal Khalifa, a Saudi businessman living in the Philippines, provided crucial financing and organizational support for Abu Sayyaf in its early years. From 1998 to 2006, Khadaffy Janjalani, who took over the leadership position when his older brother Abdurajak was killed, led the group. Abu Sayyaf suffered major losses of leadership in 2006 and 2007. In September 2006 Khadaffy Janjalani was killed in a clash with troops on Jolo Island. (Niksch, 2002) In January 2007, U.S.-backed Philippine troops killed Abu Sulaiman, a senior Abu Sayyaf commander and Janjalani’s likely successor. Romeo Ricardo, chief of the Philippine......

...conducted a relatively successful operation against the Abu Sayyaf terrorist group on Basilan island off the southwestern tip of the big southern island of Mindanao.29 The operation reduced Abu Sayyaf’s strength from an estimated 1,000 active fighters to an estimated 200-400 in 2005. Another apparent positive development in the southern Philippines is that the cease-fire between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the Philippine government and AFP has held, and negotiations for a settlement are ongoing in Malaysia. However, there are other developments of a decidedly negative nature that could worsen the overall situation in the southern Philippines and even the Philippines as a whole. One is the growing cooperation among Abu Sayyaf, several major MILF commands, and elements of Jeemah Islamiah (JI) on Mindanao. JI, the Southeast Asian Muslim terrorist organization with ties to Al Qaeda, appears to have made Mindanao a primary base for building up its cadre of terrorists. Moreover, this cooperation among the three groups appears to be transforming Mindanao into a significant base of operations rather than just a site for training; and these operations appear to increasingly target the Philippines for terrorist attacks. This, too, is related to another new development — the emergence of a group of Filipino Muslim converts in the northern Philippines, the Rajah Solaiman Movement, which is working with Abu Sayyaf and JI. The result has been an increase in......

The Life of Abu Dhar

...Abu Dharr al-Ghifari | Born | Hejaz | Died | 652 C.E. | Title | AlGhifari AlKinani | Religion | Islam | Additional information | Tribe | Banu Kinanah | Status | Muhajirun | ABOUT ABU-ZAR ALGHAFARI: Abu Zar's real name was Jandab ibn Junadah ibn Sakan, better known as Abu Dhar al-Ghaffari, or Abu Thar al-Ghaffari. Hazrat Abu Zar's Kunniyat was Abu Zar, which is because his eldest son was named Zar (this word in Arabic means 'fragrance'). By one estimate, Abu Zar was born in 568 AD, which means Abu Zar was two years older than the Prophet Muhammad (saw). He was born to the Ghifar clan, found to the western south of Medina.  They were a branch of the Banu Kinanah tribe. Quraysh clan of Muhammad (SAW) was also a branch of the Banu Kinanah tribe. Hazrat Abu Zar Ghaffari (Radhiallahu Anhu / May God be pleased with him) had belonged to an Arab tribe by the name of Ghaffar, hence his last name.   Early life: Abu Zar was most unhappy about the custom of Idol-worship that was rampant in Arabia of the 7th century. He had already believed in a Supreme God and he would spend most of his time reflecting on that. Little is known of his life before his conversion to Islam. Abu Dharr is said to have been a serious young man, an ascetic and a monotheist even before......

Special Advertising Section 2008 Abu Dhabi 3 Abu Dhabi: Creating a Modern Metropolis isit Abu Dhabi, even for a short time, and the quiet confidence of this dynamic capital city is quickly apparent. It’s a confidence that prioritizes planning and getting things right from the start. What’s the source of this confidence? Perhaps it’s the $350 billion in infrastructure, real estate and industrial projects already in progress for the city. Maybe it stems from the Persian Gulf emirate’s enormous oil and gas reserves and growing human capital base. It could also be the awareness that most elements of the city’s future growth have already been studied and planned out. But it is likely a combination of all these factors. This city’s ambitious and deliberate approach to growth was behind the creation of “Plan Abu Dhabi 2030:......

...Historical Events The Law of the Land Signs of a Hypocrite Useful Links Posts Abu Dharr Al-Ghifari Abu Dharr’s story is the story of the highway robber who became an ascetic and a preacher during the life of Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and the conscience of the rulers of the Islamic State after the death of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam). Abu Dharr (radi Allahu anhu) was among the first persons to accept Islam. Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said about him: “No one walking on the earth and under the sky is more truthful than Abu Dharr.” [Ibn Majah] Search for Truth In the Waddan valley, which connects Makkah to the outside world, lived the tribe of Ghifar. Ghifar were notorious for raiding trade caravans and for invading weaker neighbouring tribes. So lawless were they, that they did not even respect the four sacred months held inviolable by all Arabs, in which they did not allow killing. All in all, their interests were focused on ways to rob others. [Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal] Jundub ibn Junadah, nicknamed Abu Dharr, was a member of this tribe. He, like his peers, was a professional raider and used all means available to kill to survive. However, he didn’t like this life style and eventually, he with his brother and mother, left the tribe and moved close to Makkah. Abu Dharr (radi Allahu anhu) had started praying more than three years before the advent of Islam. He would pray......

Convergence of Errors: Leadership Failures Contributing to Abu Ghraib Abuses

...Paper Convergence of Errors: Leadership Failures Contributing to Abu Ghraib Abuses ASSESSMENT Assessor: Marc Imbeault Mark:       Comments:       Convergence of Errors: Leadership Failures Contributing to Abu Ghraib Abuses Introduction The purpose of this persuasive essay is to reveal the key leadership factors contributing to events that occurred during Operation Iraqi Freedom at Abu Ghraib Confinement Facility in Iraq between October and December 2003. “The abuses at Abu Ghraib primarily fall into two categories: a) intentional violent or sexual abuse [against detainees], and b) abusive actions taken based on misinterpretations or confusion regarding law or policy.”[1] From the standpoint of “Leading the Institution,” it will be argued that authorities failed to develop of a coherent body of policy or procedures[2] regarding detainee operations, which would have served to appropriately and consistently guide actions in the field and thus enable success. Instead, policy was inconsistent, ambiguous and changing – resulting in confusion regarding morally and legally acceptable standards for interrogation and detention. These lapses in policy contributed mostly to the second category of abuse.[3] From the standpoint of “Leading People,” it will be argued that the absence of effective supervision was the key contributing factor to the events at Abu Ghraib, whereby leaders failed to “monitor, inspect,......

Whether it is the provision of humanitarian aid or it is the manufacturing of pharmaceutical drugs, there are certain ethical boundaries that are important to be mindful of so that they are not breached as it comes attached with severe negative consequences.

Australian Woman Jailed in Abu Dhabi for Facebook Post

...Australian woman jailed in Abu Dhabi for Facebook post 11:00 PM Tuesday Jul 14, 2015 Australian officials are trying to speed up the deportation of a woman arrested in the United Arab Emirates for "writing bad words on social media". Jodi Magi, 39, of Western Australia, was sentenced to a fine and deportation after she posted a photo on Facebook of a car parked across two disabled spots outside her Abu Dhabi apartment.

"You are a brave girl! Stay strong" A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) spokeswoman said consular officials were making representations to local authorities in an effort to expedite Ms Magi's departure. "Australians travelling overseas are subject to the laws of the country they are in, and consular officials can't prevent the detention of Australians or retrieve their passport if it is held by local authorities," the spokeswoman said.

...Brako is a small manufacturing company that produces parts for the automobile industry. The company has several patents on parts that fit in the brake assembly of nearly all domestic and foreign cars. Each year, the company produces 3 million parts that it ships to assembly plants throughout the world. To produce the parts, Brako runs three shifts with about 40 workers on each shift. The supervisors for the three shifts (Art, Bob, and Carol) are experienced employees, and each has been with the company for more than 20 years. The supervisors appear satisfied with their work and have reported no major difficulty in supervising employees at Brako. Art supervises the first shift. Employees describe him as being a very hands-on type of leader. He gets very involved in the day-to-day operations of the facility. Workers joke that Art knows to the milligram the amount of raw materials the company has on hand at any given time. Art often can be found walking through the plant and reminding people of the correct procedures to follow in doing their work. Even those working on the production line, Art always has some directions and reminders. Workers on the first shift have few negative comments to make about Art’s leadership. However, they are negative about many other aspects of their work. Most of the work on this shift is very straightforward and repetitive; as a result, it is monotonous. The rules for working on the production line or in the packaging area are all clearly......

Abu Shakra

...Q 01: Describe Abou Shakra in terms of the value it provides for customer. Ans: Abou Shakra has managed to maintain its own identity by having satisfied customer over the years. It was only possible as it followed some values since its inception to uphold its true identity as a restaurant. These values are as follow – * Advantage - As a new restaurant when it started, it had to compete with the whole market as there was not many different cuisines available like now. So the competitive market necessitate that Abou Shakra had to offer something that would give him some advantage over the other competitors. This advantage turned out to be the greatest customer value offered by Abou Shakra, which was not offered by the majority of his customers. * Persistent Focus on Customer – This restaurant have maintained the persistent focus on customer well-being and satisfaction and that had originally been the key factor to their success.

Abu Shakra Case Study

...Q 02: Do you think Abou Shakra should develop a high-growth strategy? Why and why not? Answer- In my opinion, Abou Shakra should not develop a high-growth strategy. The reasons are as follows ‒ * Success History- The current success of Abou Shakra, to a large extent, can be attributed to the slow-expansion strategy. A high-growth strategy might have negative effects on management and also employee psyche. * Produce Quality- Abou Shakra relies on daily supplies of high quality produce to make its food delicious and offer a value of freshness, hygiene, and quality. Rapid development in other countries and locals will require it to find suppliers who can provide such quality inputs, and also to have an administrative facility to scrutinize the quality of inputs. This will be an extremely difficult process to undergo, even if in a prolonged period. * Service Quality- If a high-growth strategy is undertaken, it will be almost impossible to train enough employees in the time on a cross-cultural basis to provide the outstanding service Abou Shakra is renowned for. * Management Impediments- A high-growth strategy cannot be undertaken with the current management capabilities. Also the process will require Abou Shakra to have regional managements, and to integrate the whole organization in a matrix which both will be unfeasible. Q 01: Describe Abou Shakra in terms of the value it provides for customer. Ans: Abou Shakra has managed to maintain its own identity by having......

Values and Ethics at Abu Ghraib

...Values and Ethics at Abu Ghraib Would you be able to stand up against your superiors, coworkers and friends to uphold your values and ethics? Or would you be like the many soldiers guarding Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq who lost their careers as a result of their poor ethical decisions? The Abu Ghraib prison scandal put many people’s values and ethics to the test. The outcome, career success was influenced by values and ethics displayed through the choices of those involved. The chain of command was not prosecuted, but the soldier who attempted to bring the situation to the attention of his superiors was ostracized and threatened by his friends and coworkers. So how did this situation come to be, who is to blame, and were the punishments of all involved justified? Located approximately 20 kilometers west of Baghdad, Abu Ghraib was the largest and most notorious prison in Iraq (CBS, 2007). It covers 280 acres, has a perimeter of about two and a half miles and is made up of five individual compounds, each possessing guard towers and very high walls. Under Saddam Hussein’s rule, countless numbers of Iraqis were tortured and executed in Abu Ghraib. After the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, the prison at Abu Ghraib was stripped of doors, windows, and bricks by looters. Within months, coalition forces mended and cleaned the prison compound. They added toilets, showers, and even a medical center. However, the living conditions at Abu Ghraib continued to suffer. Detainment......
