Section A

Barbour Brown有限公司是一个工程顾问公司,由David Barbour和Neil Brown在14年前建立,位于一个大片农村地区中的主要城镇。最初,该公司仅仅专注于国内的工程项目,例如道路和下水道的铺设,由于当时的私人房屋建设迅速发展。

80年代,Neil和David都为一家在那个城镇中有办事处的大公司(Floyd and Fleming有限公司)工作.David做过分支经理,而Neil,一个有企业家精神的年轻人,参与了结构发展的部分,之后在中东地区工作了两年。1989年Floyd和Fleming公司决定撤除分支办事处并集中经营他们在城市里的工作。

Neil最近从中东地区工作归来,享受了做自己老板的自由和灵活。他和David讨论了合伙继续在那个小镇经营工程咨询服务的可能性。David有在当地工作的经验,他意识到小镇里有足够的小型工程,来维持公司运营。他还有足够的储蓄和资产,可以用于管理买断。Neil同样有国外工作所得的储蓄。有了这些资源,这两个人有足够的资本来买下当时Floyd和Fleming公司的办公室。他们制订了一项经营计划来保证额外用于买断的资金。用来支持这项创业的筹资,从银行贷款和苏格兰发展机构的拨款中获得。以五年内不得在中央地带接受和执行工作为条件,管理买断被同意了。

1990年新的Barbour和Brown工程有限公司开张了。公司团队包括David, Neil和其它两位合格的工程师组成:Jack,一个志存高远的毕业生;James一个30岁却还未获得资格认证的工程师。另外还有两个合格的技师和一个学徒技师

Section B

在接下来的14年中公司稳定地发展,主要集中于核心的国内工程业务。公司通过从事当地的工作来发展,由于Neil和Brown坚信内部投资的原则,他们总是支持当地其它公司的发展。为此他们让当地的承办人,保险经纪人和会计来给他们提供服务。实际上,只要可能,他们推荐John Colbert工程承包公司来从事建设工作已经成了一条不成文的规定。Neil Brown和John Colbert曾经是大学期间的校友并且一直是好朋友。可以依赖John的公司提供的服务,成为了获取合同的一个重要优势,因为这不仅在设计阶段,也在建设阶段增加了该公司保证高质量服务的能力。

该公司的主要目的是提供高质量的服务,因此员工具备最先进的技术尤为重要。 这使得该公司可以尽可能高效地提供高规格设计。员工被激励去升级他们的技能,当他们获取资格认证的时候,会发给奖金。当地的学院被用来培训那些学徒,但是由于培训需求的缺乏,费用正在提高。David想要继续利用那所学院,不仅因为它距离较近,也因为它和工程部门的首脑关系友好。由于这层关系,他不想用其它的学院。他同样很高兴能容易地看到学徒的进步。Neil,另一方面,感觉培训如此昂贵并且有课程不起作用的危险,认为他们应该寻求在中央地带的其它学院。他还认为那些年轻的学徒可能会喜欢去城里进修的机会,这还有可能给予他们鼓励。

2004年公司雇佣了另外两个工程师,四个技师和4个学徒。一个新的城镇旁路的合同和住房建设的持续增加似的公司可以扩大规模。为了支持工程人员,又雇佣了一个员工监督来处理接待,记账和薪水发放的事务。

...David Brooks, who is the author of text 1, is undoubtedly of the opinion that wealth won’t make you happy. He actually describes anyone who would accept a severe personal blow in exchange for professional gain is: “…absolutely crazy.” He argues that if you are engaged in a happy marriage, then professional setbacks are much easier to endure whilst being reasonably happy, but no matter how many career triumphs you attain they will never feel satisfactory if you are in an unhappy marriage. He describes the relation between happiness and income as complicated, as there in poor nations who grow to become middle-class nations is an increase in overall happiness but with further economic ascent the effect on general happiness is greatly diminished, if it even exists. He bases this in research conducted by the Brookings Institute. It states that USA has become much richer over the past 50 years and has become a very unequal country but neither this growth in overall wealth nor the vast differentiation in income social classes in-between has had an effect on the general happiness of the country. Text 2 takes quite a different approach, looking at which way of spending your money gives most happiness. Stephanie Rosenbloom, the author of the text, emphasizes that using your money on experiences e.g. vacations or cooking-classes will produce a longer lasting happiness than the purchasing of materialistic things. The main reason for this being that experiences nearly always engages......

...of the Four David Artists Through out the years there were many great artists who created many great works of art, but only four Italian artists really stick out for creating the same piece all with different points of views. These artists were Donatello, Verrocchio, Michelangelo, and Bernini, all of who created a David sculpture. Each one very unique and different. These four artists all stand out in there own individual ways. David who was supposed to be the second king of Israel, killed Goliath with just a sling and a single stone. The story of David and Goliath goes something like this, according to the bible in 1 Samuel 17. “The Philistine army gathered for war against the Israelites. The two armies faced each other on opposite sides of a valley. A Philistine giant named Goliath, would come out in armor and challenge the Israelites to war. The King of Israel who at that time was Saul, and his whole army were scared of Goliath. David who was the youngest son of Jesse, was sent to battle for one simple task, to bring his father back news of his brothers. While there, David heard Goliath shouting and saw the fear that had began to show in the men of Israel. David volunteered himself to fight Goliath, it took sometime for Saul to agree, but finally he gave in. Dressed in his simple tunic, carrying only his staff, slingshot and a pouch full of stones, David approached Goliath. The giant cursed at him, making horrible threats and insults. David said to......

Neil Harbisson's Eyeborg

...Neil Harbisson's Eyeborg Palm Beach State College Abstract This paper explores the new technological advances for people with Achromatopsia from research conducted mostly online. All of the research conducted explains the device on how it is used and what it is used for. It also shows how the sounds are conducted so the people using the eyeborg can understand it. Neil Harbisson's Eyeborg Barcelona based artist, Neil Harbisson was born with a condition called Achromatopsia which means that he was born color-blind. He has described himself as a cyborgist and colorologist. With the help of a new technological device that is attached to the back of his skull can translate color to sound. Harbisson can hear the color of sound through audible frequencies through this device in which he calls an "eyeborg". Harbisson has used the term sonochromatism (or sonochromatopsia) to define his new condition. He explains that "achromatopsia can no longer define his condition because achromatopsics cannot perceive nor distinguish colors. He also explains that synesthesia does not define his condition accurately because the relation between color and sound varies depending on each person, whereas sonochromatopsia is an extra sense that relates color to sound objectively and equally to everyone" (Harbisson, 2012). The idea for the device came about when he was attending Dartmouth College of Arts in England, where Harbisson met Adam Montandon  who was giving a lecture on......

Neil Postman Review

...Mason F Smith WRTG 391 – Advanced Research Writing Assignment #1: The Critique Essay What can technology do for you Technology is changing everyday whether we like it or not. That is a fact. It is a tool we have been accustomed to using for life. Something we desire and need. From reading Neil Postman's book "Technolpoly: The Surrender of Culture to Technology" you can see he feels all technology will do is create a two sided argument. He says "Another way of saying this is that the benefits and deficits of a new technology are not distributed equally. There are, as it were, winners and losers" (Postman, 1992, Pg.10). He feels that if someone benefits, someone must also suffer but, I disagree. His ideas are motivated by a story written many years ago that could have a totally different meaning but, he interprets in his own way. From the beginning of the book you can tell he finds technology a double edged sword. Postman states "In the United States, where television has taken hold more deeply than anywhere else, many people find it a blessing, not least those have achieved high-paying, gratifying careers in television as executives, technicians, newscasters, and entertainers"(Postman, 1992, Pg.8). This is the benefit he sees. He then follows with the downfall of "On the other hand and in the long run, television may bring a gradual end to the careers of school teachers,.." (Postman, 1992, Pg.10). Where is his proof. Maybe there are not a lot of teaching positions, but is......

...Print Email Download Reference This Send to Kindle Reddit This    [pic] The Life Of King David Religion Essay David was the second king of Israel and a descendant of Abraham. He was the youngest of eight brothers in his family (1Samuel 17:22) and was growing up as a shepherd (Bible Dictionary). He was the father of the well known king Solomon. In New Testament Jesus called as son of David. I am going to tell about David’s life before he became a king; a description of his way of becoming a king of Israel. As a king he was righteous and brave. However, as far as I am concerned, his life before becoming a king was also interesting to know. I have chosen to concentrate particularly on this part of his life, because at that point he seemed to be an ordinary person like an average shepherd, but his great faith and believe in God gave him such a strength and bravery, that he managed to become a famous hero and king in the Biblical story of Israel. The story of David begins in the Bible from the 16th chapter of 1st Samuel. David was the youngest son of Jesse, who was son of Obed. Also here we get information about his anointment by Samuel, who was a prophet before and had set Saul on throne for the United Kingdom. After that, David faced the first trial which defined his future. It was the war with Philistine. Philistines had one unbeatable warrior Goliath whom they sent to fight with any Israelite warrior. The end of their battle would define the winner. Goliath was......

Helloooo Neil and Lou

With in each and everything second that passes, a person becomes more prone to an action or thought that can result in the birth of a new them. In the short stories Goodbye, Columbus and Epstein, Philip Roth, “the self hating Jew”, combines the use of time, multiple themes, and the main male characters to depict the journey in self-realization and the birth of two new people. Goodbye, Columbus revolves around the story of Neil’s journey to self-realization and growth through the major theme of power through the use of sex and money as well as the journey to achieve the American Dream. Philip Roth uses the old and new Jewish religion to show how much of a power grasp it has over Neil. To Neil, Brenda’s family is extremely different from his own because of their type of religion and standings in society’s eyes. Neil is apart of the Old Jewish religion while Brenda is apart of the New Jewish religion. The Old Jewish religion represents Neil’s life and family in the beginning of the novella. The use of Aunt Gladys’ “abundance of the other (fruit) jamming her refrigerator.”(Roth 1959 p.6) compared to Brenda’s which “fruit grew in their refrigerator” demonstrates their standings with in the American Jewish society and Neil’s......

Theory Critique of Neil Anderson

...Theory Critique: The Bondage Breaker By Dr. Neil T. Anderson Concise Summary of Theory In his book, “The Bondage Breaker,” Neil T. Anderson seeks to reveal the why’s and how’s of spiritual warfare and exposes the many tricks Satan uses to take over the minds of many Christians. His tricks include outright lies, deception, and the lure of knowledge and power. Dr. Andersons approach differs greatly from the models we have studied previously in this class as he presents a theoretical model for overcoming negative thoughts, habitual sins and irrational feelings (Anderson, 2000). As well, Anderson seeks to clarify the nature of spiritual conflicts and offers a plan as to how they can be resolved through the power of Jesus name. Satan does not have equal power with God as he has been disarmed and is already a defeated foe, but if he can deceive people into believing he has equal power, than he wins. Anderson (2000) states, “You have been given authority over the kingdom of darkness, but if you don’t believe it and exercise it, it’s as if you didn’t have it” (Anderson, 1993, p. 80). All in all, Christians must believe and understand that Christ died on the cross to set them free, so therefore, they are no longer a product of their sinful past. Dr. Anderson offers a seven-step process in helping Christians find freedom in Christ (Anderson, pgs. 201-252). Step 1: “Counterfeit vs. Real” is where an individual must renounce any activity or group which denies Jesus Christ......

David

...Ren November 26, 2012 David The iconic sculptures of David created by both Italian artists, Michelangelo of the High Renaissance and Donatello of the Early Renaissance are similar yet different in several ways. As with most art created during these time periods, the sculptures tell the Bible story from the Old Testament about David and Goliath. In this story, David, an Israelite, battled Goliath, a Philistine, and killed him with a simple slingshot and then David’s own sword allowing for David to claim a victory for the Israelites. The similarities start with the pose. Both the artists show David in a similar pose. Both statues depict David as a warrior. Both figures are standing and are predominately nude. Both sculptures are positioned in a contrapposto pose. Both statues show some form of a soldier’s tools such as the helmet, boots, and sword in Donatello’s piece, and the stones from the sling shot in Michelangelo’s piece. Both likenesses of David depict the concept of humanism in that they both display within their likenesses a sense of “self-contained, even heroic individualism (Sayre, 2012) that perfectly captures the humanist spirit. It is from this point on the sculptures begin to have stark contrasts. Let’s focus first on the physical differences. The bronze David created by Donatello is that of a younger msn or teen age boy. It is definitely more feminine looking or waifish than that of Michelangelo’s work. His statue of David is much more......

A review of the aspects that led to the Housing Crisis will be considered. The causes that contributed to the Housing Crisis will range from the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 to the greed and voracity that engulfed the Financial Markets.

Video Games Neil Gaiman

...creations of these gods haven’t stop just because people just stop worshipping certain named deities, but only have been forgotten. These gods still live today and are still being created by human beings; in similar ways gods have been created in the past, but people subconsciously do it. A new god that can be seen today in our time can be the Video Game God, and this god has been created by people all over the globe. The Video Game God is a new god that people spent hours, days, even weeks on enjoying the entertainment, influences and effect the god has had on human, and what the god provides to his people. Before proving that there is a Video Game God that exists in the modern world, one needs to understand what a god truly is. After reading Neil Gaiman novel one can grasp a better understanding that religion isn’t needed for a god to exist and that, “Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms[…]” (Gaiman). In this part of the chapter people can understand how religion isn’t needed and is rather non-existent and is used something for to have faith and good fortune to luckily come when needed. One thing people need to understand is that gods in our past are created by human’s beliefs, stories, faith, and worship, and that “Gods die. And when they truly die they are unmourned and unremembered. Ideas are more difficult to kill than people, but they can be killed, in the end.”......

David and Goliath

...My understanding of Gladwell’s (2009) article is that the original story of David and Goliath has been misinterpreted by readers. Readers mistakenly assume that David is an underdog however Gladwell (2009) indicates that David was in fact someone who used an alternative strategy for success; relying on his speed and courageousness, opposed to strength, power and size. As I read the original David and Goliath story, I likewise assumed that in most situations the biggest, strongest or shrewdest person always conquests over the less advantaged, and also are always the leading preference against the opposition. However, Gladwell (2009) reveals that instead David was proven to be smarter and quicker than Goliath as he possessed the element of surprise and an alternative strategy for success. Gladwell (2009) attempts to justify the reasons why those persons that are viewed as underdogs by society and who appear to be disadvantaged, are actually not deprived of anything. Gladwell (2009) utilizes one main historical example to represent that the same ideology that David used to kill Goliath is similar to the theme of the article; the winning tactics used by Lawrence of Arabia in the battle against the Ottoman Empire are similar to the strategies used by the coach of his daughter’s basketball team. There are four key points that I concluded after reading the article by Gladwell (2009), (a) always play by your own rules and change the game on your terms, (b) continuously think in......
