Sarkozy Hyper-presidency
Student’s Name
Institutional Affiliation

Sarkozy Hyper-presidency France political governance has experienced numerous leaders with different approaches to its leadership. Nicholas Sarkozy is one of the political leaders who has made himself a name in the history of France. Sarkozy political career started at an early age with a win in the Neuilly Mayor position. Sarkozy was elected as the president in May 2007 through a party that was known as a UMP ( Union for a Popular Movement) becoming the sixth president of the French Republic. Although upon his election his party did not obtain majority compared to the opposition, he launched his reforms and included politicians from the opposition in his government. The paper, therefore, seeks to examine why Sarkozy was referred to as a hyper-president as well as establish whether the presidency is still powerful as compared to the past. Sarkozy title of hyper-president resulted after numerous accomplishments he made during his tenure as president. The president changed the leadership style that other presidents had used in the past, resulting in a better profile of the country among the European countries. Sarkozy did take the first courageous step to run the government as per the new quinquennial institutional rules. The president was the first ever president to govern under these rules which established the presidency hierarchy during his interactions.Sarkozy made several reforms which entailed creating new legislative domination instruments that did consolidate older political models with the new political space. The president did restore political ascendancy, successfully bringing back the president instruments ( Dennis 2009). He…...

Pope Francis will be leading the entire Catholic Church in the world with about 1.2 billion Catholic believers as of 2010 Census of the 2012 Annuario Pontificio (Pontifical Yearbook). The Catholic Church is headed by a Pope while a democratic Government is headed by a President.

Nt1110 Uni2 Hyper-Threading

...Paul Gogue Unit 2 Hyper-Threading NT1110 Introduction: Hyper-threading or HT technology is used by some Intel microprocessor's which allows a single microprocessor to act like two seperate processors to the operating system and the application programs that use it. Hyper-threading enables the "core" processor to execute two concurrent threads of instruction sent by the OS. This simultaneous multi-thread implementation (SMT) is used to improve the parellization of computation, which means more work to be done by the processor during each clock cycle. To the OS the HT micro-processors appear to be seperate processors, because the HT technology uses two virtual core's for every physical core. A Multi-core processor is a single computing component with two or more independent core's, which usually means two or more CPUs/core's working together on the same chip. Multi-core technolgy adds physical CPUs/core's which are the units that read and execute program instructions, adding multiple core's enables multiple instructions to be executed. The multiple core's improves performance, reduces power consumption, an more efficient simultaneous processing of multiple tasks amenable to parellel computing. Summary: Hyper threading stopped with P4 because there wasn't enough spare capacity in the core for the second thread. Each thread gets less cache to work with, and if they simultaneously need memory or the same resources, switching back and forth between......

Richard Milhous Nixon, Perspectives on the Presidency

...Richard Milhous Nixon Nick Bennett Perspectives on the Presidency Dr. Kane 4 April 2011 Richard Milhous Nixon, an introverted man in an extroverted environment, was a brilliant but flawed individual. Described as having a “light side” and “dark side,” Nixon routinely displayed vindictive and insecure qualities that were very detrimental to his presidency. Nixon was a man of many complexities and contradictions that seemed to all stem from his troublesome childhood. Nixon excelled in foreign affairs as he broke the ice with numerous nations and possessed a remarkable knowledge. He was an innovative thinker and developed intricate strategies that would give him a bold portrayal. Although he had an undeniable amount of knowledge, he displayed many negative characteristics within his personality and views in regard to his power. Spending long nights alone, Nixon would evaluate problems, correlate the information and develop a very plausible solution. Regarding Richard Nixon and the notion of presidential power, he implemented some beneficial uses, however several examples of abuse. He would sometimes even act on issues without seeking approval or guidance from congress. Nixon used unjustified means in order to accomplish his tasks, thus sparking much debate concerning the extraordinary power of the United States President. Nixon’s personality can be described as paradoxical and flawed. His childhood was difficult to say...

The presidency of Barrack Obama was offset in January 20th, 2009. Obama’s Presidency was inherited from George Bush whose presidency was facilitated with a series of terrorist attacks. Taking into consideration Obama’s speech noted in National Archives, it is evident that Obama’s presidency has an aim of ensuring higher levels of national security through eliminating any form of terror attack on the United States soil. While in office, matters related to financial crises was listed among Obama’s policy decisions. Inclusively, issues on tax policy changes and the matter of the healthcare industry were also covered. Obama’s victory came about when the economy of the state was at a devastating state: It was near a fall. As a result, the presidency has an aim of saving the near free-fall economy resulting into a great recession within the levels of the economy. Obama’s presidency has a characteristic of series of wins and losses. Within the first two years, president Obama successfully passed a number of legislation such as the healthcare bill.

In addition, Barrack’s presidency is also characterized by prominent victories such as the $787 billion Stimulus Bill as a......

Hyper Reality - Jean Baudrillard

...Jean Baudrillard’s Theory of Hyper-reality One of the leading figures in postmodernism is Jean Baudrillard. Baudrillard began his analysis with Marxism and modernity, and developed what he considered a more radical approach – a society of simulations, implosions and hyper-reality, where it is difficult to distinguish image from reality and where signs and simulations have become society. Baudrillard considers society to have entered a new era. Society is no longer based upon the production of material goods, but upon the selling of signs and images, its culture is of “Simulacrum”. He also suggests that these signs and images have little or no relationship to reality. He sees the postmodern society consisting of an exchange of images that he refers to as “simulacra”. These simulacrums are images of things that do not, or never have existed. In his essay “Precession of Simulacra” Baudrillard states that what has happened in postmodern culture is that society has become so reliant on signs, models, images and maps that people have lost all contact with the real world that before preceded the map. Reality itself has begun merely to imitate the model and images, which now precedes and determines the real world: "The territory no longer precedes the map, nor does it survive it. It is nevertheless the map that precedes the territory—precession of simulacra—that engenders the territory" (Baudrillard 1). Furthermore according to him, when it comes to postmodern simulation and......

Barack Obama was born to a white American mother, Ann Dunham, and a black Kenyan father, Barack Obama Sr., who were both young college students at the University of Hawaii. When his father left for Harvard, she and Barack stayed behind, and his parents eventually divorced. Barack's mother remarried an Indonesian oil manager and moved to Jakarta when Barack was six. He later recounted Indonesia as simultaneously lush and a harrowing exposure to tropical poverty. He returned to Hawaii, His grandparents raised him up from a humble background. In 2007 when then Senator Barack Obama announced his run for the presidency of the United States, the country was experiencing great turmoil and people were ready for a change in leadership. No matter what political party you held, it appeared to be an overwhelming sentiment that people were looking for a shift in direction, especially relating to the bad economical positions a lot of Americans had found themselves in. The presidency of Obama began on 20th January in the year 2009 after he was sworn in as the 44th president of United States of America. Before unveiling his ambition of vying for the top seat, Barack Obama was the Illinois senator in United States. Obama’s presidency came about as a result of succeeding President George Bush.

To What Extent Is the Obama Presidency More Imperilled Than Imperial?

...To what extent is the Obama presidency ‘more imperiled than imperial’? (40) To a fairly large extent, the Obama presidency is more ‘imperiled than imperial’ seems largely true, with Obama suffering from major constraints such as Congress. The theory of the imperiled Presidency suggests that rather than being too powerful, the President does not have enough power to be effective. In contrast, imperial presidency is characterised as when a president has greater power than the constitution allows. One can argue that his pursuit of major domestic policy goals has been much more aggressive than his predecessor, Bush, suggesting Obama’s presidency as imperial. Obama once quipped, “I’m the President of the United States, not the emperor of the United States”. One argument supporting the assertion that the US presidency is “more imperiled than imperial” is the president being limited by political pressures. In 2012, Obama stated that if chemical weapons were used in Syria, he would use military intervention. However, when they were used in 2013, he seemingly tried to delay action. Explanations as to why he delayed include falling public support for intervention and the UK Parliament voting against intervention. As Commander in Chief, Obama had the power to intervene but was limited by informal, outside pressures. This demonstrates that although constitutionally a president has certain powers, political pressures limit him. Obama’s approval ratings would have fallen if he......

Celluloid Presidency

...The Celluloid Presidency Literally millions of dollars are spent calculating, measuring, and predicting presidential approval ratings by campaigns, pollsters, and pundits. All this money and effort is expended so that political elites can get into the heads of the American people. But what if people are much less sophisticated in their political decision making? What if they just react to stimulus they are provided with little to no regard to the quality of that that stimulation? While many factors go into forming the public’s opinion about the President and the job he’s doing what if one the biggest factors is how the President is portrayed in the media. Not the news media, but on the silver screen. The Clinton Presidency has its shares of ups and downs but it also had several movies that featured the President of the United States as a character. Did these film’s change people’s opinions of President Clinton based on how they portrayed their fictional presidents? Observing approval ratings during President Clinton’s tenure in office we can see if a pattern emerges that is consistent with the portrayal of the President in various films during the Nineties, and if that change correlates with box office receipts, which will serve as a measure of viewership. President Clinton took office on January 20, 1993 and like most presidents his approval ratings started out artificially high. Having won the 1992 Presidential campaign with only 42% of the vote his approval rating......

Autosomal Dominant Hyper Ige Syndrome - a Stat3 Mutation

...Autosomal Dominant Hyper IgE Syndrome, a STAT3 Mutation Lydia Sofia Moutsiou, W1574096 Hyper-immunoglobulin E syndrome (HIES), is a rare primary immunodeficiency characterized by elevated serum levels of IgE, pneumonia, recurrent eczema, eosinophilia, and staphyloccocal skin infections. It is estimated to affect 1:100,00 and it can inherited by be either an autosomal dominant (AD) mutation in STAT3 gene, or autosomal recessive mutation in DOCK8 gene (Grimbacher, Holland, & Puck, Hyper-IgE syndromes, 2005). History The autosomal dominant HIES was first described in 1966 by Davis, Schaller and Wedgwood. They investigated a rare case of two red-haired girls with recurrent eczema, pneumonia and staphylococcal skin infections and referred to it as Job’s syndrome (Davis, Schaller, & Wedgwood, 1966). Later on, in 1972, Buckley et al. worked on a case of two boys presenting the same symptoms as well as eosinophilia, severe dermatitis and elevated serum IgE levels and referred to it as Buckley’s syndrome (Buckley, Wray BB, & Belmaker, 1972). Further research in the first case of the two girls confirmed that they also had high serum IgE levels and abnormalities in neutrophil chemotaxis suggesting that both Davis and Buckley were describing the same syndrome (Hill, et al., 1974). For many years the condition was only associated with the immune system. In 1999, Grimbacher et al., proved that autosomal dominant HIES also affects the skeletal and connective tissue in a......

Imperial vs Imperilled Presidency

...Plan: ‘Actually more IMPERIAL than imperilled’ Discuss this view of the president in the USA. 30 marks Intro: - definition of imperial and imperilled and then set out clear argument – imperial and imperilled are greatly dependent upon political time as Skowronek suggests, as well as the political climate surrounding the incumbent president. The scope for being ever being ever a solely imperial or imperilled president is hugely limited in practice, demonstrated by the now considered bifurcated presidency. * Imperial – term comes from Schlesinger in 1973 when referring to Nixon. It is linked to the assertion of presidential power, especially in foreign policy, in presidencies from Truman to Nixon – term used to criticise the increasing dominance of the President in relation to Congress * Imperilled – refers to a reduced level in Presidential authority and power as a resurgent of Congress occurred – increasing its authority over the executive through a number of legislative policies, thus practically capping the President’s role domestically and abroad. Paragraph 1 – YES – could be considered to be more imperial due to the use of executive agreements * Use of executive agreements means that the president is able to bypass congressional approval – and so acts as an aid to circumvent congress * Obama has used a combination of executive agreements, memoranda, public declarations and press statements to push past constitutional restraint – which facilitates......

'More Imperilled Than Imperial' Discuss This View of the Us Presidency.

...It could be argued that the US President is becoming increasingly weaker rather than stronger, despite the writings of Arthur Schlesinger in his book ‘The Imperial Presidency. Gerald Ford remarked that the “Presidency was in peril” showing the fall of power for the US President. There are many limits on the powers of the President, however many could argue that these are not enough in preventing the president from being imperial from the other branches of government. One argument that the Presidency is imperilled is that no President has been able to exert the same amount of power that Franklin D Roosevelt did during the 1930s and 40s. Roosevelt remains the President to have increased the role of the executive branch of government with his New Deal policies which created organisations such as EXOP. He also broke the convention that a President only stood for two terms, becoming the only President to be elected for four terms. However, once his presidency was over, the powers of the President were soon limited to prevent the President from becoming too powerful. The 23rd amendment ensured that a President would serve no more than two terms. Thus all the Presidents following FDR have been unable to demonstrate as much power as he did. Even his successor, President Truman, could not do as much in office as FDR, despite having to deal with the fallout from the end of World War Two. In contrast however, some Presidents have been able to show a large amount of power overseas,......

End of Reagans Presidency

...Final Years of Reagan’s Presidency • Republicans lost control of the Senate in the off-year elections of November 1986. o Hope rose among Democrats that the “Reagan Revolution” might be showing signs of political vulnerability. • Democrats also relished the prospect of making political hay out of both the Iran-Contra affair and disquieting signs of economic trouble. • The “double mountains” of deficits-the federal budget deficit and the international trade deficit-continued to grow ominously. • Falling oil prices blighted the economy of the Southwest, slashing real estate values and undermining hundreds of savings and loans institutions. o The damage to the S&Ls was so massive that a federal rescue operation was eventually estimated to carry a price tag of well over $500 billion. • Meanwhile, many American banks found themselves holding near worthless loans they had unwisely foisted upon Third World Countries, especially in Latin America. o More Banks and savings institutions were folding than at any time since the Great Depression. o A wave of mergers, acquisitions, and leveraged buyouts washed over Wall Street, leaving many brokers and traders mega-rich and many companies saddled with mega-debt. Failures Tarnishing Reagan’s Presidential Legacy Ronald Reagan's successes in economics, politics and foreign affairs are not the most important. Just as important was how he responded to his failures, such as his response to his greatest failure—the......
