...Administrator Challenges Paper Eric A. Carter CJA/454 Instructor: Ryn Fenner Corrections is believed by many people that work in its field of correctional officers to be the most challenging and frustrating component of criminal justice. There is the challenge of managing the inmates daily as well as the frustrations of inevitable mismanagement at attempting to accomplish multiple goals. New challenges present themselves every day. In a very real sense, employees in a correctional system are doing time the same as the inmates are doing time. It's easy to conduct a trial and sentence somebody (Alighieri, 2004). What corrections find more difficult is what to do with these inmates after they have been sentenced for five, ten and life in prison. Much of corrections is completed is a big range because of its endless amount of prisoners that are sentenced to prison each day. An issue that also occurs in corrections is the cost of operating a correctional facility. To operate a prison each year it can cost approximately thirty billion dollars. This includes correctional officer workers, administrations that work in the correctional facility. Housing, feeding, and clothing an inmate can start from twenty thousand dollars a year and the number can grow to almost thirty thousand, all of the funds are provided from tax payers. Therefore with all of these numbers in place to pay workers and take care...

...Carter Racing by Jack Brittain & Sim Sitkin DELTA LEADERSHIP BJ Carter was not sure. Chris Carter (a sibling and business partner) was on the phone and needed a decision. Should they run in the race or not? It had been a successful season so far, but the Pocono race was important because of the prize money and TV exposure it promised. This first year was hard because the team was trying to make a name for itself. They had run in a lot of small races to get this shot at "the big time". A successful ~w..Kcould mean more spons,ors, a chanceto start m~i~,g _ ~l'lle profit fo!~ange, and the luxury of r:,!g.ing..only the major ~nts. But if they suffered another engine failure on national television ... . was an important element in success . "In racing, you are pushing the limits of what is known," Robin argued, " and that means some things are not going to be under control. If you want to win, you have to take risks . Everybody in racing knows it. The drivers have their lives on the line, I have a career that hangs on every race , and you have every dime tied up in the business. That's the thrill : beating the odds and winning." Last night over dinner Robin had added to this argument forcefully with Burns ' Fir st Law of Racing: "Nobody ever won a race sitting in the pits." BJ, Chris and Robin had discussed Carter Racing's situation the previous evening.

Jimmy Carter Globalization Quote Analysis

..."Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing... you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are talking about computers. This doesn't affect two-thirds of the people of the world." Jimmy Carter’s quote on globalization highlights its effect on both the majority and minority. The quote talks about how the often stated positive aspects of globalization only affects a small proportion of the world; only one-third. Despite the fact that the quote is probably outdated since Jimmy Carter stepped down from presidency in 1981, it still holds very true in our own world. Carter says that globalization is usually defined as a good thing by “rich people” who have access to things like “cellphones” and “Internet”, in the modern world only 33.34% have internet access. Basically, the problems of the majority of the world’s population is being marginalized and not being taken seriously. In our world, technological globalization is yet to truly globalize due to many reasons including poverty and lack of education. Globalization is described as the world becoming more interconnected but it seems that the world is actually drifting further apart in terms of wealth. The path that globalization takes is usually determined by the influential and wealth who are disconnected from the true state of the world. Due to this, globalization so far has mainly made the rich richer and the poor poorer. Technology companies need to begin......

A Biographical Sketch of Ludwig Van Beethoven

...A Biographical Sketch of Ludwig van Beethoven Introduction Ludwig van Beethoven (December 1770- March 1827) was a pianist and composer- arguably the greatest and most influential composer of all time. He made his mark in history with the crucial role that he played in the transition of classical eras in art music. He had a full and varied music career and wasn’t afraid to move his numerous compositions from the tried and tested musical styles. In terms or the world’s greatest, Beethoven only comes second to the likes of Mozart or Bach. Beethoven is best known for his compositions, which include 32 piano sonatas, 5 concertos for piano, 16 string quartets and 9 symphonies (Anderson 1044). He is also known for the composition of other music, choral works and songs. Early Childhood Beethoven was born on the 16th of December, 1770 in Bonn and baptized the following day (Dalhaus & Whittall 6). His father was originally from Brabant, Belgium, but had moved to Bonn where he served as a musician at the local court. Despite his weakness for alcohol, Beethoven’s father was quite influential in shaping the music career of Beethoven as it was through him that young Beethoven was exposed to music. From an early age, Beethoven was taught music by Christiano Gottlob Neefe, a famous opera composer and conductor, and Johann van Beethoven who was his father. Johann envisioned creating a new kind of Mozart in his son and would train him every evening on returning from the court. As a......

The Carter Doctrine

...The Carter Doctrine and the Effects in Afghanistan POL 300 July 28, 2013 Professor Koltochnik Adreion Rice Assignment 2 As recorded, The Carter Doctrine was a policy proclaimed by the president of the United States Jimmy Carter in his State of the Union address on January 23, 1980, which stated that United States would use military force if necessary to defend its national interest in the Persian Gulf region. The doctrine was a response to the 1979 invasion of Afghanistan by Soviet Union, and was intended to deter the Soviet Union-the Cold war adversary of the United States-from seeking hegemony in the Gulf. After stating that Soviet troops in Afghanistan posed “a grave threat to the free movement of middle east oil,” Carter proclaimed: The region which is now threatened by Soviet troops in Afghanistan is of great strategic importance: It contains more than two-thirds of the world's exportable oil. The Soviet effort to dominate Afghanistan has brought Soviet military forces to within 300 miles of the Indian Ocean and close to the Straits of Hormuz, a waterway through which most of the world's oil must flow. The Soviet Union is now attempting to consolidate a strategic position, therefore, that poses a grave threat to the free movement of Middle East oil. When Carter assumed office in 1977, he was a tabula rasa, the perfect American innocent in a world set in its ways. Predictions of how he would behave were few, and those that were attempted were based on......

...Statements like this place his company at risk and show that he obviously needs a human resource manager who knows about current laws and regulations. Being the owner, he should have at least a basic knowledge of discriminatory employment policies and procedures. Regardless who he hires (even if it is “mostly women and minorities”), if he violates the equal employment law, he can definitely be accused of discrimination. The employees or applicants only need valid evidence to charge him for discrimination. In this case the EEO may take action. 2. How should Monica and her company address the sexual harassment charges and problems? Investigate with both of the women who confront Monica with the claim and the managers Monica and Carter Cleaning should immediately address the situation and allegations. Start an investigation to see whether such violations really occurred. Address the situation with care to also protect the privacy of everyone involved and to avoid disruption in the work place. Advise victim to inform harasser directly that conduct is unwelcomed. Issue a strong policy to ensure all employees know the severity and guidelines with sexual harassment and harassment and what is expected and what is not tolerated in the workplace. Inform all employees of their rights under the policy, this is critical for the human resource to take steps to prevent such workplace misconduct. And having updates often issue a strong policy statement condemning......

The Benefit of Sketch

...SUMMARY – “The benefits of sketching for knowledge management” By Inggrid Amelia Farandi BACKGROUND The literature survey is based on a search for the title term "sketching" on the ISI Web of Knowledge online database, from which 406 articles were found on March 21, 2011. After topic filtering and eliminating all articles where sketching was used in the sense of a project proposal or a theoretical sketch, there were only 48 articles left related to the keyword "sketching". Based on the awareness of important contributions in the field of sketching, which did not appear in their database search, the inclusion criteria was extended to include grey or conference literature and examined the reference sections of highly cited articles. ISSUE OR PROBLEM Knowledge management (KM) can be considered to have at least partly grown out of the understanding that the mere reliance on information management infrastructures is probably not sufficient to enable organizations to utilize their intellectual capital effectively. While modern knowledge management applications (such as contextaware applications or collaborative filtering systems) are an important element to solve many knowledge management challenges (such as the on-demand retrieval of experiences codified in documents), it is not a panacea for all knowledge-related problems that companies face today. Many genuine KM problems - such as enabling teams to use all of their members' expertise when solving a problem - cannot......

...more than 15 employees may be discriminated against due to his or her race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.” Today, organizations and companies are also creating a safe work environment for those of different sexual orientation and gender identification. Discrimination occurs when an employee feels that they're being specifically targeted based on the criteria mentioned above. Although Carter Cleaning company has hired minorities and females, Jack is still participating in discrimination. He's practicing age discrimination and gender discrimination. Gender discrimination is noted when the female canidate is asked on the interview “who's going to take care of your child while you are at work?” A potential employees family life and structure of raising a child is of no concern and should not be brought up in an interview. It should also never be assumed that the female candidate has children. Asking a female this question and not a male is what makes it discriminatory. Work and family matters are two separate identities and should never be brought up in an interview. Carter also practices age discrimination by allowing his recent hires to be paid more than a man who has “50 years of experience.” The employee is treated less favorable based on his age. Not that he/she cannot due the job anymore, but solely on the fact that he/she happens to be older than those currently working. What I would recommend for Jack would be he reviews and attends seminars regarding how to...

Jimmy Carter

...In 1976 the Democratic Party chose Jimmy Carter as its nominee for president, and the American people elected him to that office over the incumbent president, Gerald Ford, bringing to a climax the most meteoric rise in modern U. S. politics. In choosing Jimmy Carter, the voters gained a president about whom they knew little and one who prided himself on being relatively unknown outside his home state of Georgia. He had never been a national candidate and had no significant experience on the national scene or any close ties to Washington. Jimmy Carter decided to run for president after his second term as governor of Georgia. (Goldfield, 2007, p.869) He sensed that the mood of the country was anti-Washington and that people were interested in a candidate who had not been associated with the Watergate scandal or with the Vietnam War. His campaign was built on moderate positions on most major issues, and he set a moral tone for the election by promising never to lie to the American people and to institute a government that was decent, compassionate, and responsible. In foreign affairs, Carter wanted to establish human rights as a tenet of American policy. (Jimmy Carter, n.d., ¶5) His frequent criticism of nations that violated basic human rights and his pleas in behalf of Soviet dissidents angered the Soviet government, which viewed the statements as intervention in its internal affairs. Despite these differences, Carter and Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev signed......

Jimmy Carter

...Brooke Redington Dr. Larry Underberg UI 320- 01 5 April 2016 The Era of Bad Judgement America has had forty-four presidents since the creation of office in 1789. Each of the forty-four presidents has left both negative and positive marks on the office. Some presidents, such as Franklin D. Roosevelt, are known for their great leadership and wonderful policies. Others, like Richard Nixon, may never recover from their time in the Oval office. Most Americans feel as if the biggest presidential mistakes were made during the time of the Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, and Jimmy Carter administrations. Nixon cheated during his political campaign, Ford only defended Nixon and let the economy drown, and Carter was too much of a nice guy. The twelve year span of these three presidents nearly broke America. However is this completely their fault, or did they each inherit an already broken America? When Richard Nixon took office in 1969, America was in a time of change. The American people started demanding rights such as ending the draft, women’s rights, and African-American rights. Nixon was quick to realize this and honed in on ways to give the people what they wanted. In the year of 1972, Nixon was granted permission to visit the People’s Republic of China, which opened the closed diplomatic relations between the two countries. Also, in the same year Nixon initiated détente and the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with the Soviet Union. Nixon was not done there, in 1973 he was able...

Job descriptions set the boundaries of jobs in terms of required knowledge and skills. By understanding the job description, a trainer can define the learning requirements for a new or transitioning employee. 3. Explain in detail what you would do to improve the training process at Apex. Make sure to provide specific suggestions, please. Every position would have a formal (written) description. Training procedures would be documented for each position. Supervisors would be formally accountable for training. Running Case: Carter Cleaning Company; The New Training Program 1.

Biographical Characteristics

...Organizational Behavior Age, race and gender are the key biographical characteristics. The relationship between age and job performance is likely to be an issue increasing importance during the next decade for at least three reasons. Firstly, there is a widespread belief that job performance declines with increasing age. Regardless of whether this is true, a lot of people believe it and act on it. Secondly, the workforce is aging. The third reason is U.S. legislation that, for all intents and purposes, outlaws mandatory retirement. Most U.S. workers today no longer have to retire at age 70. There are some positive reasons to keep older workers to their jobs, such as experience, judgment, a strong work ethic, and commitment to quality. But older workers are also perceived as lacking flexibility and as being resistant to new technology. Age effects productivity. There is a widespread belief that productivity declines with age. Most studies indicate a positive association between age and satisfaction, at least up to age 60. Gender is one of the key biographical characteristic. There are many misconceptions, unsupported opinion about this characteristic. Many organizations think that there are few, if any, important differences between men and women that will affect their job performance. Psychological studies have found that women are more willing to conform authority and that men are more aggressive and more likely than women to have expectations of success, but those......
