Umiikot ang kwento ng Luha ng Buwaya sa tunggalian ng mayayamang may-ari ng lupa at ng kanilang mga inaaping magsasaka sa bayan ng Sampilong ilang taon matapos ang pananakop ng mga Hapones. Nagsimula ang kwento sa pag-uwi ni Maestro Bandong Cruz sa Sampilong upang humalili sa dating punong-guro na nagbakaston muna dahil sa karamdaman. Nagkataon naman na magkakaroon ng malaking handaan sina Don Severo at Doña Leona Grande, ang mga pinakamayaman sa Sampilong, bilang pagsalubong sa kanilang dalawang anak na sina Jun at Ninet. Ang magkapatid ay umuwi sa Sampilong mula sa kanilang pagtatapos sa Maynila. Ang pamilya Grande ay lubhang mapang-api sa kanilang mga magsasaka , at hindi lamang ngayong malapit na ang piging ngunit kahit noon pa man. Sila'y lagging walang-awang sumisingil ng mga nagkakapatong-patong na utang ng mga mahihirap na magsasaka. Isang halimbawa ng kanilang kalupitan ay, ilang araw matapos ang handaan, namatay ang asawa ng isang magsasaka dahil hindi pinagbigyan ng mag-asawa ang hiling ng lalaki na huwag munang kunin ang kanilang pera upang mayroon siyang maipambili ng gamot para sa kanyang maysakit na asawa.
Dumating ang mga pangyayari sa puntong napuno na ang mga mahihirap na magsasaka at naisip nilang magtayo ng isang unyon para mapangalagaan ang kanilang mga karapatan. Sila ay tinulungan ng butihing punong-guro na si Bandong. Sa tulong nito ay namulat ang isipan ng mga tao sa Sampilong at gumanda ang kalagayan ng mga mamamayan. Ngunit patuloy na umiral ang kasakiman ng mga Grande at tinangka nilang kamkamin ang lupaing kung tawagin ay 'Tambakan' o 'Bagong Nayon' at hinabla ang mga mahihirap upang mapigilan ang kanilang mga plano. Di nagtagal at nakarating ang mga balitang ito sa mga Grande sa pamamagitan ng kanilang katiwala na si Dislaw, ang karibal ni Bandong sa panliligaw sa magandang dalagang si Pina, at sila'y gumawa ng…...

...superficially. This is so common in my organization. Members relate to you because they have no choice. But as soon as your back is turn they condemn you. I know of members who look up to other members as if they are boss. They do anything to please them like run personal errands for them, snitch with them to others and I overheard these same members bad talk the members who praise them. Recently, we had a new worker who works in the shoe department she was on her cell phone and another member who was on her cell phone told the newbie not to be on her phone. The girl said to her you should practice what you preach. The member didn’t like that and went and complain the newbie to the boss. The boss then called the newbie to his office. This created a lot of tension. Personally, the older member had no right to go and complain the newbie to the boss because she did not set an example; she too was a culprit of using her cell phone so she wasn’t in a position to tell the newbie she was wrong. In order to bring about a change in my organization. Certain behavior needs to be encouraged and discouraged to enhance the organization culture. In relations to the constructive target. Three behaviors to emphasize is Appreciation, rewards and loyalty. Managers and members much show appreciation to each other. We must consider each other’s feelings and help to develop each other growth. When members display a high performance on the job and is very consistent, my manager should compromise......

Pta Essay

...the room turns to watch me enter. It’s a passive-aggressive ploy to guarantee I’ll trigger all the traumas from my own school days—fear of embarrassing myself in public, of failing, of not fitting in. I spot the friend who’d talked me into going, wedge myself into the tiny cafeteria bench beside her, and look around. The room is populated with committee queens and fundraising phenoms. I don’t see a soul I know. And then, crap, I do. I was afraid Caroline would be here. We’d been friends in college, in fact, before she cheated on her boyfriend with my boyfriend, she’d even stayed at my parents’ house once for spring break. Like me, she’d settled near the college town, and that’s why fate had stuck us together again, me, as the newbie PTA mom, and Caroline, as the third grade teacher everyone loves. I shift a little so my friend’s shoulder hides me. The meeting basically consists of committee leaders giving pleas for volunteers: car parkers at the fundraiser, helpers at the book fair, people to sell Yankee candles and pies. Ugh, no thanks. I ignore the sign-up sheets. I try glancing around the room in what I think is a stealthy way, and Caroline catches my eye. At least I think she does. She’s always had that wandering eye—no, really, it’s an actual condition that keeps them from pointing in the same direction. I wonder what my ex-boyfriend thought of that, and what the little kids think now. Do they ask her about it? Does she mind? I look away. The arts......

...Vizio, a newbie in the computer & electronic industry, the company has accomplished some huge success in a short time. The company has even managed to top some of its bigger rivals such as Samsung Electronics Company, and Sony Corporation. Vizio has become very competitive in the U.S. market; it has conquered making quality TVs at lower prices. Like any other start-up company Vizio, has had its challenges. Vizio is now trying to take the challenge of becoming an IPO company. Chief Executive William Wang of the Irvine, Calif., stated in an interview (2009) that the companies aim is to become an initial public offering organization within the next five years. Vizio like Gene one is financially stable and grew from a nobody to a very well known company in the United States. The indentified issue with Vizio is though they plan to become an IPO within a certain time frame it appears that they really don’t have the focus or the true ambition to move forward with this plan. Gene one had lead players that seem to be slow-full to the idea of an IPO as well. If Vizio plans to make its mark in this sector they will have to be more willing to make this plan happen. The way that CEO William Wang handles the issue of becoming an IPO is by his confidence in his company. “Wang says Vizio will keep growing by coming up with ways to undercut the colossi. He is not wanting for confidence. He also states in his own words, "Hey, before I was 30 years old, I made my first million," he says.......

... o Showing overfriendly attitude with former employees does not help newbie get their favor more quickly. Although newbie found out culture of company thoroughly, it does not mean new employees can treat everyone or behave new employee in workplace as in home. o New employees also show their overfriendly attitude through some actions like inviting colleagues to participate some activities such as camping, shopping, travelling, etc… after get familiar a little with former employees in the first day of work or ask nickname on Facebook, Yahoo. Old employees can dislike this attitude of newbie’s because they do not know anything about that newbie’s personality and they can think newbie is too hasty to make friends. Moreover, when inviting them to join some activities of new employees, nothing makes sure that they are interested and want to join because their hobbies can be different from newbie’s. Asking for nickname on Facebook or Yahoo is, too. The social network is usually place where newbie shares about life, personal thoughts, and it includes his/her close friends. Therefore, should make friends with colleagues before sharing with them newbie personal life. o The first impression is very important.

Walmart Organics

...The prices alone will likely pry even some of the most avid Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods customers to shop at Wal-Mart for their organics to see what the fuss is about. Wal-Mart is no stranger to branching out and getting its feet wet in new industries. One such venture is the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Markets, which can be likened to grocery stores such as Randall’s, Kroger and H-E-B. At these Neighborhood Markets, Wal-Mart strips itself of many of its retail items and focuses mainly on produce, food, and cosmetics. Wild Oats, the company in partnership with Wal-Mart for this organic food campaign, is set to grow exponentially with the global exposure that comes with a partnership with the largest retailer on the globe. The company is no newbie when it comes to organic food. Wild Oats at one point had 110 stores in 24 states across the United States. In 2007, Whole Foods purchased Wild Oats in a deal that was eventually nullified in an antitrust case. The Federal Trade Commission made Whole Foods give up Wild Oats and the brand name had been quiet up until this major partnership with Wal-Mart. Although the organic campaign by Wal-Mart may not dominate the market, it is sure to shake up the industry and even force lower prices across the market....

Job Hopping How It Affects Your Career Success

...who is job-hopper and shows tendency to job-hop or someone who is stable? Companies are more likely to invest in people who are stable. The reason is simple. They are able to contribute back into the company. Everybody wins. If you are constantly job-hopping, you send a signal that you are not ready to commit. Companies like to invest in people who see their career goals align with their corporate goals. Job-hoppers usually cannot see their career path beyond the next year. Decreasing the Incidence of Job-Hopping One of the best ways to quit job-hopping is to truly know what you want. Once you know that, you will have singular focus in the pursuit of your career goals. Of course, it is understandable that as a fresh graduate or newbie at work it is tough to know that. You may be interested in some other industries. If there are other fields that you are interested in then make a plan to find out about them. Start with the Internet, and then ask friends who may know people in those fields. Speak to them; ask them about the expectations of the company and the role of the position you are interested in. You may not have all the answers but at least you get some idea. That would decrease the chances of you job-hopping. Make Learning a Key Objective If you are new in the work force and have been job-hopping quite a bit, my advice to you is this – truly find out what you want. Once you know that, find a company that is willing to train or how they are......

...court hearing over the unfulfilled repayment of the loan taken from Shylock. Bassanio offers his own hand, head or heart in place of the pound of flesh that is due to Shylock to be cut from Antonio. So in opposition to his bad qualities, Bassanio offers true friendship; true loyalty; true love; true devotion. It is debatable as to whether these highly laudable qualities counterbalance impetuosity, imprudence, immoderation; extravagance of idea and living; and frivolity. If these bad traits are nothing more than the scourge of youth, Bassanio has the makings of an admirable man. If, on the other hand, these qualities are character and personality traits, then pity Portia and Antonio (who isn't all that wise himself). chavara118 | eNotes Newbie Posted November 30, 2014 at 9:52 AM (Answer #4) dislike1like Bassanio is extremely reckless as others have already described .Eventhough he is loyal to his friend he's completely foolish as he  is ready to waste more money  to make up for the sum he lost as he describes in Act 1 when he talks about his childhood memories of  going in search for a lost arrow by taking a risk in losing a second arrow.His love for Portia is not genuine in the beginning of the play as he wishes to marry her just because of her wealth,fame and beauty.he wishes to redeem himself through Portia.,not for the sake of love.But as the play unravels we can see that he truly does love Portia in the  end of Act 5.If Bassanio did not love Portia he would not......

...edge above the industry standard. Best Practices for Employment To make a good first impression attention to detail is paramount. Not just knowledge but more importantly appearance is going to drive a board to listen. Everything is going in to the decision making process to be apart of the team. Some of high-end brokerage firm do trade shows around the country. Many retail traders attend these seminars so this might be an opportune time to make appointment or a free two minutes to make a pitch at the firm. The next driver to get on board with these companies would be probably a passion and experience to take the industry to the next level. A history of personal accounts and transactions in the their platforms to help guide the newbie traders is a great selling point. Most of the clients in this retail space are baby boomers that have a bit of learning curve when it comes to innovative technology. This is what creates the neutral battlefield for the average Joe. This is a perfect angle to set you above the rest of the competition. Of course dealing with customers and money. Strict guidelines are set in from our government to protect the integrity of the business. Licenses, training and certification will show dedication to push the envelope in the higher.

That is to say, a lot of people say it, and it is commonly held to be true, and it serves as a way of indicating a rather complex reality involving management. A science has known laws. It works with facts and reason and produces—when it gets to application via technology—dependable results. By contrast, art is highly personal and subjective. It works with emotions and the interplay between individuals and communities. Managers must do both: produce reliable results and deal with emotional humans. sruthi19 | Student, Undergraduate | eNotes Newbie Posted July 29, 2011 at 9:05 PM (Answer #6) dislike1like since art is concerned with personal application of knowledge some kind of ingenuity and creativity is required to practise the basic principles. it is said to be art because: 1) A......

Msl658 - Machines and Organisms would need to keep their feelings in mind and also know that they do have to have a resting time between production times. Organisms are only good for a short time and are not able to be upgraded but instead will eventually move out of their position so that another organism will take its place. The new organism, unlike an upgraded machine, will then have to be allowed some time to learn and absorb the information needed for them to perform the task at hand. Although it is a positive change for the company to hire a fresh face for the company that hasn’t gotten into the mind-set that they have been there too long and are now just doing a job and not actually love the job, it can also slow down production for a short time while the newbie is becoming accustomed to their new position. I had been in my position for 12 years when the staff secretary retired and with her retirement no replacement was hired and therefore her duties were absorbed by myself and other secretaries within our department. It took a while for me to learn her job and perfect it so that it worked for me. Some leaders say that a person leaving doesn’t matter because “everyone can be replaced” that is true to an extent but it doesn’t mean that the job is an easy one. It would be very neat if we could operate as an organism with a touch of machine. Still have a breathing, functioning body with the ability to be upgraded and not have to struggle over learning new information. Sometimes it......

...more emphasis because there are administratively recognized goals; and there is a definite time period for the process. (Chao, 2009) Regardless of the type of program chosen or the reason(s) for choosing to implement a mentoring program, when properly implemented, mentoring can be a vital and productive tool for any organization that yields employees who experience greater levels of satisfaction, commitment and mobility. However, proper implementation requires diligent planning and careful pairing. In the mentoring relationship, one member is usually a “seasoned” or senior member or the organization, and the other a “newbie” or junior member. The mentoring relationship, or process, allows the senior member to transfer pertinent job related information to the newcomer or junior member. The objective is to develop or improve the skills and knowledge of the “newbie” or junior member in the relationship. Customarily, the senior member of the relationship is the mentor. “A mentor can be defined as an individual of high status in the work environment who has superior experience and knowledge and is committed to providing upward mobility and career support to a protégé (Blickle, Schneider, Meurs & Perrewe, 2010, p. 1897).” One of the primary responsibilities of a mentor is the transferring of proper and accurate information to his or her mentee that will aid him or her in acclimating to the work environment. For that reason, organizations must make mentoring choices wisely.......

He is a very family oriented person and so is his family too. If anything happens he is there no matter what. He had three priorities, first is GOD, second is family, and finally is work.
