...This has been characterized by the numerous strikes and news reports of the actions and statements of the principal actors involved. The recent TCL strike (Newsday, 2012), statements threatening strike action by PSA president (Guardian, 2010), and threats to the government for a nationwide strike (CARICOM News Network, 2011) all give credence to the concerns of the ECA “that the industrial relations climate will become increasingly adversarial”(Business Guardian, 2011). This type of conflict and balance of power issues in the long-term can have adverse economic consequences as well as a negative effect on international competitiveness. The term ‘Industrial Relations’, in a broad sense, covers the employment relationship between employers and employees either directly or through their representatives. An explanation of Industrial Relations which clearly identifies the principal actors is:- “the relationships between employees and employers within the organisational settings. The field of industrial relations looks at the relationship between management and workers, particularly groups of workers represented by a union. Industrial relations are basically the interactions between employers, employees and the government, and the institutions and associations through which such interactions are mediated” ( Actors and their roles A key actor identified in the definition is the employer. The employer according to Burchill, 2008 may be from the......

...The Actor Never was this hard for me to write my thoughts I guess this shows the battle going inside my heart I miss your character, I miss your lies, I miss your act I miss that moment, where next to you I sat And gently you placed your arms around my waist Happily believing that laying in your arms, is going to be my fate You are an actor, a professional I must say Your act was so believable that made me want to forever stay Stay next to you, and gladly walk towards you all dressed in white But this dream vanished as soon as you went out of sight You disappeared, hiding behind the curtains of your life As the unspoken truth was revealed about the misfortunate wife I feel sorry for her, she signed on the contract of her doom I am sure she doesn’t even have a clue of the truth of her groom She is ignorant, naïve just as I was when I thought you were true I shall thank God for his mercy on me, showing me the real you I know one day, your bitter medicine you shall taste God won’t let the pain of a pure heart go a waste What goes around comes around my dear I am not cruel as you, but no more shedding tears I learned my lesson the hard way, as I faced one of my deepest fears You, shall be burned in your own fire soon enough While I walked out, unharmed and even more tough....

The Rise and Fall of Child Actors

...The Rise and Fall of Child Actors Cute button noses, precocious humor, sassy acting—child stars can make any audience fall in love with them. But what happens when they are all grown up? They say the brightest stars burn out the fastest. Child actors are just like us, they go through growth spurts, but also have to face the day to day adult issues like sex, drugs, and the pressure of a job. The sad truth is we think about the welfare of young performers primarily when we are reminded of the dangers they face. Child actors primarily serve as the family breadwinner once their parents decide it is time to seek stardom. The pressure to be older than they are is a huge issue, they want to look older so they start taking drugs, partying and getting drunk. Most child actors do not know who they are enough to deal with the pressure of fame and the outside influences that surround the entertainment industry. For a child actor to be successful they need a strong family. It is up to the parents to let their kids be kids, but many parents forget what is important and the money consumes them and their children. Yet for every broken family in Hollywood there is also a success story to be told. Maculay Culkin is a prime example of how parents of child actors let the money get in the way of their family. His fame led to the downfall of his whole family, and he started using drugs and disappeared from the Hollywood scene. He divorced his parents and took control of his......

...The British Colonization in Indian Introduction East India Company, also known as The Honorable East India Company, British East India Company, was a joint-stock company established by the British. On Dec. 31th, 1600, the company was chartered by the Queen Elizabeth as the Governor and Company of Merchants of London trading into the East Indies (Chaudhuri, 2006). The charter in fact gave East India Company a monopoly right for twelve years. During its rule in India, the company not only owned economic monopoly but also assisted the British to realize military expansion. There will first be a discussion about how East India Company assisted British to realize its military expansion in India. Following that, there will be a discussion on how East India Company works as an economic tool of colonial expansion for Britain. Finally, there will be a discussion on how East India Company finally led to the backwardness of the country as well as disaster of the local people. Military expansion The British colonization in India is actually a military expansion, which not only struck some other foreign colonial powers but also led to the elimination of local rulers (Nicholas, 1992). As a result, the colonization in fact had made a preparation for the later centralization of authority. The French army was defeated in the Seven Years’ War in India. As a result, the French no longer dear to expand its power in India, which also prevented the development of its industrial revolution....

Actor Network Theory

...“Discuss the contribution of Actor-Network Theory to our understanding of management accounting and control in organisations that have adopted ERPS technologies.” Over the past decade, management accounting has seen an extraordinary rise in technology driven innovations, whereby Hyvonen (2008) explains how this has contributed to the emergence of virtual organisations. The power of ICT plays a pivotal role in many organisations, through providing a basis for managing efficient operations and formulating corporate strategy. Moreover, Bhimani et al (2008) explains how ICT provides the opportunity to alleviate the problems associated with information flows in organisations with fragmented information systems. In practice, Hyvonen (2008) notes that the centralised control of large organisations requires ICT systems that make the periphery visible to the centre. The enterprise wide resource planning system (ERP System) is an example of an ICT system which coordinates all the resources, activities and corporate information of an organisation into one central database that collects data and feeds it into multiple applications that support all business activities of an organisation. Furthermore, it has been suggested that such systems facilitate unprecedented levels of organisational integration (Dechow and Mouritsen, 2005) and thus ERP systems have provided a new platform for organisations to thrive and develop a competitive advantage. Actor-Network Theory is a constructivist......

Which marked the beginning of the end of the American Indians way of life. A life that was once peaceful and prosperous for the Sioux Indians was about to change drastically. Throughout history, the Sioux Indians, had to fight physical and emotional battles, in trying to retain their land and dignity. Following a time line, the American Indians were treated unjustly, as I will show starting with the Bozeman Trail and continuing on with The Great Sioux Reservation, Custer’s expedition, Battle of the Little Big Horn, Ghost Dancers, Wounded Knee, Citizenship Act of 1924, The Indian Reorganization Act, and The American Movement(AIM).

Major Actor

...MAJOR ACTOR The main actor in this case is Hai Gan. He is 56 years old, of the Colony, Texas. He is a legal permanent resident who lives outside Dallas, used three homes he owned in Albuquerque and Moriarty to establish residency in New Mexico for 51 undocumented immigrants living in other states. Gan is one of several people who have been prosecuted in recent years for running such rings in New Mexico, which is one of just a few states that let residents get driver's license regardless of their immigration status. Castellano said Gan disguised his New Mexico properties to look like apartments, he advised people against talking to authorities, and he rarely accompanied his clients to the Department of Motor Vehicles to avoid being recognized. But Gan's attorney, Francisco Mario Ortiz, said his client believed he was acting lawfully when he advertised his services to immigrants around the country. And he said he never asked if the customers were in the country legally or not. He also pointed out that many spoke good English, were well-dressed and well-educated. The complaint alleges he charged clients upward of $2,000 each to secure driver’s licenses between 2009 and 2011. He found guilty on 51 counts of fraud in connection with identification documents, eight count of transporting undocumented immigrants, three counts of money laundering and two counts of witness tampering.

How Actors Contribute to a Film

...HOW ACTORS CONTRIBUTE TO A FILM Actors are a vital contribution to a film, for without the actors there would be no film. To become an actor, one must possess a great deal of talent. This person must be able to portray the character as described by the director, and make the audience believe the reality of this character, not only by the words they speak in his or her respective roles, but by their emotions, facial expressions, and physical movements. This person must also be able to grab and hold the attention of the audience, and keep them entertained. What is the goal of acting? The ultimate goal of any actor should be to make the audience completely believe in the reality of the character. (Boggs & Petrie, 2008) There many ways, also known as “methods” actors may adopt to achieve their goal. One way is called the GOTE method. GOTE is a very easy to remember acronym that stands for Goal, Obstacle, Tactics and Expectation. This is a very basic approach to breaking down a character. (Russell) Goal is what the character is going after, the whole purpose for the script. The Obstacle is what stands in the way of the goal and is a direct opposition to the goal. Tactics are what the character uses to overcome the obstacles and reach the goal. The Tactics is what makes the character real, and shows the audience what type of person they are. Tactics can be funny, honorable, deceitful, etc. The Expectation gives the tone and excitement to the......

Research Online is the open access institutional repository for the University of Wollongong. For further information contact the UOW Library: Actor Network Theory Abstract Actor-Network Theory (ANT) emerged from science and technology studies, though it was inspired by grounded theory and semiotics. In the 1970s, Bruno Latour (a French anthropologist and social scientist) and Steve Woolgar (a British sociologist) undertook ethnographic field work at the Salk Institute in California. This research was inspired by grounded theory and Latour and Woolgar approached their study of work in the endocrinology laboratory as if they were anthropologists observing a hitherto unknown and strange set of practices. In other words, they did not fit their observations into any preconceived notions of scientific method, or how science 'should' be done. The resulting, highly influential book Laboratory Life: The Social Construction of Scientific Facts(1979,......

...kumar Ph.d scholar in public administration, kurukshetra university Narender joon LL.M, Kurukshetra university kurukshetra INTRODUCTION: The most operational irritants to Centre State Relations springs in administrative sphere & they have led to most slanderous accusation against executive functionaries and decision makers. It is an area in which seemingly detailed provisions of the Constitution have not helped much. In the modern administrative age, administration plays a very significant role by way of enforcing the law of promoting socio-economic welfare of the people. The pattern of administrative relationship between the Centre and the State, therefore, assumes a great significance in developing country like India. The Indian Constitution contains more elaborate provisions regarding the administrative relation between the Centre and the States than are to be found in any of the three federation of the U.S.A., Canada and Australia. The Constitution lays down a flexible and permissive and not a rigid scheme of allocation of administrative responsibilities between the Centre and State. The scheme is so designed as to permit all kind of co-operative administrative arrangement between the two levels of Government. It is notable, however, that though legislative and judicial power is defined by the Constitution, this is not the case with the executive in our Constitution. Some Constitutional experts like Wade & Philips, try to define executive functions......

Actor and Acting

...Actors and Acting | The text defines five types of actors: Impersonator, Personality, Star, Wild Card, and Character. Come up with examples of each type of actor (in addition to those identified in the text) and explain in detail why you think they fit each particular category. In this chapter, I learned that there are five different types of actors; Impersonator, Personality, Star, Wild Card and Character. A great example of impersonator would be Chris Tucker from the movies “Rush Hour”, “Friday” and “House Party 3.” I think that all the characters that he plays in all these movies depict and behave in really life. In this text the term impersonator is considered demeaning in the acting world suggesting that the actor has simply copied the manner, dialect, and behavior of a character, instead of creating the character. (Goodykoontz, & Jacobs, 2011) Personality actors would be Mark Wahlberg from the movies “The Three Kings”, “Shooter” and “The Departed” is great examples of how Mark uses his strong personality and bad attitude to play the character in these movies. The star type actor to me would be Sandra Bullock because of the way the people interested in her and her relationships and the money she gets per movie. I think a great wild card would be Mikey Rourke because he can play any character from good to bad guys; a great example of a movie for him would be “The Wrestler”. A character type actor to me would Jonah Hill because the characters that he plays in the......
