Footwear consists of garments worn on the feet, for fashion, protection against the environment, and adornment. Being barefoot is commonly associated with poverty, but some cultures chose not to wear footwear at least in some situations.
Socks and other hosiery are usually worn between the feet and other footwear, less often with sandals and flip flops (thongs). Footwear is sometimes associated with fetishism, particularly in some fashions in shoes, including boots.
Durable shoes are a relatively recent invention, though many ancient civilizations wore ornamental footwear. Many ancient civilizations saw no need for footwear. The Romans saw clothing and footwear as signs of power and status in society, and most Romans wore footwear, while slaves and peasants remained barefoot. The Middle Ages saw the rise of high-heeled shoes, also associated with power, and the desire to look larger than life, and artwork often depicted someone barefoot as a symbol of poverty. Bare feet are also seen as a sign of humility and respect, and adherents of many religions worship or mourn barefoot, or remove their shoes as a sign of respect towards someone of higher standing.
In some cultures, it is customary for people to remove their shoes before entering a home, and some religious communities require shoes to be removed before entering a building which they regard as holy, such as a temple.
Practitioners of the craft of shoemaking are called shoemakers, cobblers or cordwainers.

Human Behavior

...Human behavior refers to the range of behaviors exhibited by humans and which are influenced by culture, attitudes, emotions, values, ethics, authority, rapport, hypnosis, persuasion, coercion and/or genetics. The behavior of people (and other organisms or even mechanisms) falls within a range with some behavior being common, some unusual, some acceptable, and some outside acceptable limits. In sociology, behavior in general is considered as having no meaning, being not directed at other people, and thus is the most basic human action. Behavior in this general sense should not be mistaken with social behavior, which is a more advanced action, as social behavior is behavior specifically directed at other people. The acceptability of behavior is evaluated relative to social norms and regulated by various means of social control. The behavior of humans is studied by the academic disciplines of psychiatry, psychology, social work, sociology, economics, and anthropology. Human behaviour is experienced throughout an individual’s entire lifetime. It includes the way they act based on different factors such as genetics, social norms, core faith, and attitude. Behaviour is impacted by certain traits each individual has. The traits vary from person to person and can produce different actions or behaviour from each person. Social norms also impact behaviour. Humans are expected to follow certain rules in society, which conditions the way people behave. There are certain behaviours......

Off-the-Job Behaviors Human Resource Management Mgmt410

...Off-the-Job Behaviors Human Resource Management MGMT410 1. Do you believe Oiler’s employee rights were violated? Explain your position. I think that Amendment 1 of the United States Constitution say it best, “AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - AMENDMENT [I.] 2 Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances”. Mr. Peter Oiler certainly has unique situation that he/she has to contend with. But by virtue of the amount of negative publicity that the food chain, Winn Dixie would have to contend with, I think that they made a wise decision. Case-and-Point; say for instance, Mr. Oiler was on a normal outing and decided that he wanted to drink a little. He’s dress in his finest dress while at the Shady Grove Bar and Grill, when all of a sudden, someone from Winn Dixie recognizes him. They start a conversation and a fight ensues. Mr. Oiler and his co-worker are eventually pulled apart, but the damages are insurmountable. The owners of Shady Grove Bar and Grill, through a police report fine that Mr. Oiler is employed at Winn Dixie, and file a Class-Action Suit against the corporation. The fact of the matter is, no one cares who you are, until they......

Animal Behavior and Human Behavior

...Animal Behavior and Human Behavior Mary A. Warren Rene Christopher Bio-365 Grand Canyon University Abstract Over time there has been much curiosity concerning animal behavior and the search to indentify the connection with our animal friends and the human-being. Fifty years ago, a young Englishwoman walking through a rainforest reserve came across a dark figure hunched over a termite nest. She stops to observe a big male chimpanzee actually making a tool to retrieve his food from the termite nest, just as we humans use a spoon or fork. This chimpanzee picks up a twig and strips the leaves from it and bends it to fit inside the little hole (Jane Goodall, 2010). Jane Goodall had witnessed one of the most important scientific observations ever in this chimpanzee. From a child she had always been told that humans and only humans used and made tools. She was amazed with what she had just witnessed with her own eyes, therefore doubting some information she had been told as a child. (Jane Goodall, 2010). This was the beginning of research on the human-chimpanzee relationship. There has also been a lot of research done concerning the elephant. Forty years of research has revealed the elephant also exhibit human like behavior. They communicate within their herds displaying many of the humanistic traits, expressing emotions such as flirting, anger and even some of the same parenting skills displayed in humans (Choi, 2011). The observation of the elephants from a distance,......

... Organizational Behavior Psychology Term Paper By James Bishop Instructor: William Lucht Rachel Carson Elementary School, a subsystem of the Montgomery County Public Schools, was built in 1990. The goals of the school are to maintain the proper education for its students. Rachel Carson provides the setting for my examination of various organizational theories. The theories under examination are McGregor’s Theory X and Theory Y and Weber’s Bureaucratic Theory. McGregor’s Theory X assumes that people are basically lazy and need to be coerced into performing effectively. I illustrated this by comparing the teachers to management (these are the individuals who give rewards and recognition to get students to work). I also compared the pupils to workers (individuals needing coercion to fulfill expectations). McGregor’s Theory Y assumes that individuals seek autonomy. This theory is best depicted by Rachel Carson’s administration and its teachers. Teachers are allowed to manage their classrooms with minimal administration intervention. Weber’s Bureaucratic Theory believes organizations should function like machines using the concept of bureaucracy. This concept was best depicted by the entire Rachel Carson staff and how it abides by the rules set forth by the Montgomery County Public Schools. Montgomery County Public School System was established in the early nineteenth century. The goals of education for the school system were adored in 1958. Since then, the......

...Two different but related fields address the influence of heredity on human behavior. Behavior genetics focuses on the extent to which heredity accounts for individual differences in behavior and thinking. Evolutionary psychology studies the evolutionary roots of behaviors and mental processes that all human beings share. Behavior geneticists study the topics that interest all psychologists perception, learning and memory, motivation and emotions, personality, and psychological disorders but from a genetic perspective. Their goal is to identify what genes contribute to intelligence, temperament, talents, and other characteristics, as well as genetic predispositions to psychological and neurological disorder. Evolutionary psychologists study the origins of behaviors and mental processes, emphasizing the adaptive or survival value of such traits. Evolutionary psychologists look at the role that natural selection might have played in selecting for adaptive behaviors, especially during the long period that our ancestors lived as hunter gatherers. The nervous system is not the only mechanism that regulates the functioning of our bodies. The endocrine system plays a key role in helping to coordinate and integrate complex psychological reactions. In fact, as we’ve noted throughout this chapter, the nervous system and the endocrine system work together in a constant chemical conversation. The endocrine glands release chemical substances called hormones that are carried throughout......

...Human Behavior Keisha Blue BEH/225 January 17, 2014 Karen Yarber Psychology has been around for some thousands of years which started from an independent experimental field of study. Psychology is when you study the human mind, brain and its functions. It is research to understand and explain how we think, act and feel. A big part of psychology is devoted to diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues. Science is the study structure and behavior of the physical and natural world. This is observed by physical evidence as the basis of that understanding. Psychology investigates an enormous range of perspectives. These perspectives underpinned a shared set of assumptions of what people are like. It is also detailed biological studies of the brain. Just like science, psychology focuses on issues and seeks cause and effects. Psychology evolved into science with two existing sciences: philosophy and physiology. Psychology is considered a science because it uses the scientific method. Psychology evolved into science due to the study of human behavior. The mind is source of ideas and thoughts which correlates from the brain. Psychology asks and answers the fundamental question. We identify them as major perspectives. Major perspectives are assumptions that underlie the research. There are many different ways of thinking about human behavior. There are so many different psychology perspectives. Each one has its own strengths and weaknesses, and brings different......

...Name: Daryll A. Belen Sec: Midterm Exam Human Behavior Organization Task 1: 1.0 Company information Arce Dairy Ice Cream i) Background of the company The manufacture of ice cream from fresh carabao’s milk and fruits was originally conceptualized by Don Ramon Arce, Sr. and Doña Carmen Arce in 1930. Its first plant, established in 1935, was situated in Novaliches, Quezon City. In 1938, demand for the ice cream was so high that the plant had to be moved to Lepanto St. in Manila, making it more accessible to the consumers. The existing plant at Selecta Drive in Balintawak, Quezon City under the stewardship of Mauro C. Arce, Sr. was established in 1952. In January 1990, the third generation of Arces outvoted the family of Mauro C. Arce, Sr., and the brand name Selecta Dairy Product was sold to RFM Corp.. However, the ice cream business and the dairy plant were retained by the family of Mauro C. Arce, Sr. lock, stock, and barrel. The Arce type of ice cream, the “all-natural” ice cream, has captured the hearts of Manilanians through the decades of its uniqueness and its old fashioned manufacturing process. Tenacious requests from prominent clients, captive loyal followers and food connoisseurs, demand for its return. In January of 1995, the dairy plant resumed operations, and the family of Mauro C. Arce, Sr. renamed the product “ArceDairy Ice Cream”. This name was so chosen because no other company can just call their product “dairy ice cream” unless the butter......

...Human Behavior and the Environment Terry Miller PSY 460 June 9, 2014 Human Behavior and the Environment The environment is a recipient of the behavior of humans. This behavior can be positive, as in the case of green fuel alternatives or negative, as in the case of noise pollution. However, human behavior is not always simple when determining the source. Many points of input are present, one of them being environmental cues. “Cues are elements in the environment that convey important information or trigger an affective reaction” (Steg, 2013, p. 120). How a human responds and impacts the environment is determined by the cues and the message they convey. Environmental Cues and Behavior “Sentences, words, and visual images are environmental cues that can affect the behavior of individuals (Charles-Sire, Guéguen, Pascual, & Meineri, 2012, p. 457). The presence of environmental cues is constant and therefore shapes human behavior in positive, as well as negative ways. Social norms and laws or rules are reinforced or weakened as a result of environmental cues. For example, a fabric rail queue line at the bank is meant to control the line and spread the customers for quicker service. Some individuals adhere to this cue regardless of the abundance or lack of customers while others adhere only if no way around it is found. Cues can be as basic as signs warning to not litter or as involved as public service announcements and social media campaigns. Behavior......

Organizational behavior helps not only to learn how to act and fit in among the personnel within an organization, but also to evolve skills of influencing, motivating and leading in an organization. In the first classes of this course I learned a lot about my personal abilities which helped me choose my major and the career I want to proceed in. In the remain classes I had the opportunity to gain competences that showed me the type of organization I would like to work in. I'm planning to get MBA in accounting and get a job position in a large company. There are many concepts of human behavior that allowed me to take this decision of working in a large company. To start, Work motivation is defined as the composition of energies that have a specific direction with a certain degree of intensity in terms of effort that an employee will dedicate to work. There are different of motivation theories such as Maslow's basic needs of human beings in a pyramid with five stages: physiological needs, safety, social needs, self-esteem, self-actualization, the need motivates as it is not satisfied. Moreover, for Alderfer (livelihood needs, sociability, growth) qualifies the hierarchy of needs of Maslow: we can try to meet several needs at once, a......

...Human Behavior in Organization (Case Study no. 3) Case 3. THE DILEMMA: Goodbye, Jimmy, Goodbye Miss Gloria Tadino was mildly surprised whe she found 50 resumes on top of her desk. The resumes attachments to applications for a single job opening that was advertised in a newspaper a few days ago. The position vacant is for an encoder. Gloria, still single, was hired by the company and is currently the recruitment supervisor in the human resources department. The resumes of applicants on her desk indicate her most recent assignment. She was ordered to analyze them and prepare a shortlist of ten names who will be interviewed by the committee headed by the manager of the human resources department. Gloria took a good look at the requirements for the vacant position which consist of the following: 21-26 years old, graduate of B.S. in Computer Science, and a resident of Manila. Gloria found out that thirty of the applicants did not meet the requirements, so their applications were set aside. Still, Gloria needs to eliminate ten more. She was in a quandary and she could not make up her mind on who would be eliminated. As Gloria was shuffling the resumes, she noticed one with a name similar to her ex-boyfriend’s. She said to herself “I don’t want to work with someone who has this name,” and she took out the resume and set it aside. She has nine more names to go. Next, she noticed that five applicants graduated from the university where his boyfriend is an alumnus. She set...

...been in place for quite some time, it is getting stale. No bonuses have been given in months. The employees are not satisfied with the management of the company and overall efficiencies have decreased. There is a lack of leadership including social and emotional intelligence and this is now leading to very low employee morale. The management doesn’t seem to be motivating their staff. Also the employee suggestions which worked well in the past have now been declining. The suggestion rates from employees have dropped to just 50 a year, showing that employees no longer feel like they are contributing successfully to the plant (Collins and Beer, 2008, p. 5). It seems that there has been no management feedback, which is crucial for employees to realize their potential and become more motivated. Thus, the employees are no longer taking an active interest in the company. My suggestions for steering this company in a positive direction would be to first and foremost include an organizational behavior system which would include the following elements: * Fact and value premises * Vision * Mission * Goals (Newstrom, 2014, p. 32) I would also suggest implementing one of the following supportive models of organizational behavior: * Supportive - depends on leadership instead of power or money. Through leadership, management provides a climate to help employees grow and accomplish in the interests of the organization the things of which they are......

...An Overview of Human Behavior Makenzie Koehn New York University Human Behavior refers to the collection of every physical action and visible emotion that is associated with individuals and also the entire human race. When looking at the life of Shawn Hunt, there are many factors displayed throughout the article on some of his experiences while growing up. We are able to recognize components such as resilience, race, spirituality, and mental health. This paper will focus on these different elements and how they were defined in Shawn’s life. We will also discuss how a bio-psycho social approach may help us better understand human behavior in the social environment. In Shawn’s life, we see a great deal of risk and resilience that displays a wonderful example of what each factor may look like. Shawn, who spends a great amount of his young life falling into his own stereotype, finds a way to break the chains of the standards that he was born into. At 11 years old, he was a messenger for the neighborhood drug dealers. Two years later, he had a .25 caliber pistol and headed down a very dark path. However, when Shawn was 17 years old, he turned his life around. He was the co-captain of his track team, an honor student and a youth leader at his church. Although, he had hit a high point in his life, Shawn began stumbling upon a reoccurring dream that spoke of the violent environment that he had been a part of for so long which made him realize he had to break away. ......

...York City in 1908, the oldest of seven children of Russian Jewish immigrants. After 2 or 3 mediocre years as a college student, Maslow improved in his academic work at about the time he was married. He received both a bachelor's degree and a PhD from the University of Wisconsin, where he worked with Harry Harlow conducting 2 animal studies. Most of his professional career was spent at Brooklyn College and Brandeis University. Poor health forced him to move to California, where he died in 1970 at age 62. III. Maslow's View of Motivation Maslow's theory rests on five basic assumptions about motivation: (1) the whole organism is motivated at any one time; (2) motivation is complex, and unconscious motives often underlie behavior; (3) people are continually motivated by one need or another; (4) people in different cultures are motivated by the same basic needs; and (5) the basic needs can be arranged on a hierarchy. A. Hierarchy of Needs Maslow held that lower level needs have prepotency over higher level needs; that is, lower needs must be satisfied before higher needs become motivators. Maslow's hierarchy includes: (1) physiological needs, such as oxygen, food, water, and so on; (2) safety needs, which include physical security, stability, dependency, protection, and freedom from danger, and which result in basic anxiety if not satisfied; (3) love and belongingness needs, including the desire for friendship, the wish for a mate and children, and......
