Consider the following for background: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uXu3kE6wks A frequent criticism of the H1-B1 worker program is that it takes technical jobs from U.S. employees. Do you agree or disagree or sorta agree/disagree and why?
I either need to read more about this subject or the prescribed way dude explained the process was not informative enough. From his description, the non-citizens are only here for a short period of time, they are limited to what they and their families can do, and ……… So I don’t see them really taking away many technical jobs. I’m on the fence because I believe in the concept of America being the land of opportunity for all who are qualified, not just some.

Login to MyStatLab and complete Quiz 2 (Chapters 4, 5, and 6) Answer Discussion Question(s) for week 5 Discussion Question: Why do you think knowing how to develop estimates and calculating sample sizes are important? What kinds of things can we learn from these two statistical procedures? How do you think you might use them in you work environment? Be specific and give examples to support your response.
A. If we could develop estimates, then we could possibly predict the outcome of an event or ensure that it would be successful. Sample size is very important to ensure that an experiment yields statistically significant results. If the sample size is too small, the results will not give actionable results because the variation will not be large enough to conclude that the result wasn't due to chance.
B. Estimation refers to the process by which one makes judgments about a population,…...

Micheal Jordan

...Michael Jeffrey Jordan (born February 17, 1963), also known by his initials, MJ,[1] is an American former professional basketball player, entrepreneur, and majority owner and chairman of the Charlotte Bobcats. His biography on the National Basketball Association (NBA) website states, "By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time."[2] Jordan was one of the most effectively marketed athletes of his generation and was considered instrumental in popularizing the NBA around the world in the 1980s and 1990s.[3] After a three-season career at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was a member of the Tar Heels' national championship team in 1982, Jordan joined the NBA's Chicago Bulls in 1984. He quickly emerged as a league star, entertaining crowds with his prolific scoring. His leaping ability, illustrated by performing slam dunks from the free throw line in slam dunk contests, earned him the nicknames "Air Jordan" and "His Airness". He also gained a reputation for being one of the best defensive players in basketball.[4] In 1991, he won his first NBA championship with the Bulls, and followed that achievement with titles in 1992 and 1993, securing a "three-peat". Although Jordan abruptly retired from basketball at the beginning of the 1993–94 NBA season to pursue a career in baseball, he rejoined the Bulls in 1995 and led them to three additional championships (1996, 1997, and 1998) as well as an NBA-record 72 regular-season......

Michael Jordan

...Michael Jordan " I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." Those encouraging words were spoken by Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan was born in Brooklyn, New York, on February 17, 1963. His parents, James and Delores Jordan, moved to Wilmington, North Carolina when he was still a toddler. Jordan has two older brothers, one older sister, and one younger sister. I am going to tell you why Jordan is in fact so famous. To get there he had to overcome tough obstacles but it the end has many great achievements. His love for basketball began when his older brother, Larry, continuously beat him in one-on-one pickup games. As with any challenge Jordan faces, this determined Michael to become a better player. Jordan played basketball for Laney High School in Wilmington, North Carolina. Ironically, Jordan was cut from the varsity team as a sophomore. Instead of giving up after failing to make the team, Jordan used it to spur himself to greater achievements, practicing hour after hour on the court. "Whenever I was working out and got tired and figured I ought to stop, I'd close my eyes and see that list in the locker room without my name on it," Jordan said, "and that usually got me going again." He eventually made the team and led it to the state championship. Jordan then accepted a basketball......

Michael Jordan

...Was Michael Jordan the most influential Player in the NBA? Michael Jordan was arguably the best basketball player ever but was he the most influential? That is a controversial question today. Jordan has 6 championship rings, and numerous MVP’s. He is 6’7 and couldn’t be stopped when he was in his prime. Michael Jordan’s story to me makes him the most influential player in basketball. Another reason that makes him so influential is his name. MJ is known worldwide and there are numerous statues around the world in his honor. Finally the way he entertained his audience on the court is a reason why he is influential (espn.com). Michael Jordan was born in Brooklyn but his home town was in Wilmington, NC. He attended Laney high school in Wilmington where he failed to make his school’s varsity basketball team. That did not stop him, he not only made his high school varsity team but he went to North Carolina University and led them to win the championship in 1983(nba.com). The next year he was drafted by the Chicago Bulls, that year he began his road to superstardom (nba.com). Michael Jordan’s name is one of the most popular names in the world. His name is behind numerous ads and sneaker lines. He has released his retro sneakers over and over and they are getting more popular by the year. His shoes are so popular that people are getting murdered over them. According to fox news Joshua Woods, 22, got one of the few vouchers to buy a pair of the latest shoes for himself and his...

...the “Air Jordan” brand sneakers made by Nike, and how they are promoted. We will begin this topic with Advertising. Advertising is a form of communication designed to persuade potential customers to choose your product or service over that of a competitor. Nike has the “Jordan” brand very successful not just because of the name, but its successful advertising. Nike pushes the “Jordan” brand in section of the public most likely to purchase them, and that is the urban community. For example as a fairly young African American (33yrs old) I grew up idolizing Michael Jordan. I guess you can say, “I wanted to be like Mike”. So as I would walk through the mall, look at magazine all I would see is the world’s most famous sports player wear his own sneaker brand produced by Nike. So since I wanted to be like “Mike” then I would beg my mom to buy me a pair so I can be like my idol. Make a long story, Nike pushes to “Air Jordan’s” in the urban community… because they know as a company that a lot of young African American’s idolizes the man known as Michael Jordan. Every few months Nike will re-release an “Air Jordan” sneaker and when that time comes you will see flyers, posters, etc all around the area. A target market that Jordan Brand engages is the young, urban population. As the years go by, it is becoming more and more important for Jordan Brand to keep the aura of Michael Jordan fresh in the mind of young consumers. Any basketball fan that appreciates Michael Jordan......

...Hemmings Mkt/435 Amber Topping 8-25-2014 Air Jordan Shoes Introduction The Nike Air Jordan Shoe line launched in 1985 and forever changed the course of athletic footwear. Focused primarily at first in basketball shoes, Nikes new golden child not only changed the design and comfort of the basketball shoes, but also the general dynamic and look of basketball shoes. Before the AIR JORDAN, all basketball shoes were white. This simple statement only begins to describe the sheer magnitude of the changes that were about to occur to the sport of basketball and to the athletic footwear industry once Michael Jordan entered the league.  (Retrieved on 8-25-14 from: http://sneakernews.com/air-jordan-brand-jordan). A Little History As one can see form the statement above, the men hired to launch the ad campaign for Nike and the Air Jordan shoe line could have never imagine the empire that would be created with the tag line “Everybody wants to be like Mike”. Now one could argue that Michael Jordan becoming arguably the greatest basketball player of all time really established the Air Jordan shoe line, but ultimately it is because they forever changed the face of basketball shoes and turned them in to a fashion statement. Michael Jordan eventually bought out Nike and took sole ownership of the shoe line, however the line is still advertised through Nike, as a minority ownership group. One thing Nike and Michael Jordan have continued to do well, is understand their......

...Behind the Lies of Jordan Belfort Abstract Jordan Belfort built one of the most powerful brokerage firms anyone has every seen. His tactics weren’t always ethical but his leadership skills were out of this world. He gained the trust of over 1,000 stockbrokers and was involved in stock issues totaling more than 1 billion dollars (Biography.com, 2014). Introduction Sex, money, and drugs… Society being its own worst enemy, a young man named Jordan Belfort saw an opportunity to pursue one of the most incredible business ventures in the history of Wall Street; hence the nickname “Wolf of Wall Street”. The American dream of a luxurious lifestyle was quickly turned into reality for Jordan Belfort and his close-knit team, which in collaboration built the famous empire of Stratton Oakmont. Starting out owning just over 50% of the company, in 1989 Jordan partnered with a man by the name of Kenneth Greene who received 20% of Stratton (Khalaf, 2014). These two shared a collective aspiration in creating the biggest penny stock firm there was to date. Shortly after, they decided the margins weren’t big enough to grow the company on a corporate level and begin selling stocks to the wealthier percentage of Americans. Starting in the garage of a friends used car dealership, this corporation ran on all cylinders with the understanding of pumping and dumping stocks. (Biography.com, 2014).

...example, challenges, significant successes TEAM LEADERSHIP PAPER 3 DEMONTRATION OF LEADERSHIP TRAITS IN MANAGING A TEAM Michael Jordan, considered the greatest basketball players of all time, is worldly known for leading the Chicago Bulls to six world championships in the 1990s. A leader indeed, whose qualities stem from more than his skills as a basketball player. Michael Jordon is a leader due to his character as well as his accomplishments. A leader is the person who commands a group, organization, or country; a person followed by others. ("Dictionary.com,") Michael Jordan was the leader for The Chicago Bulls, a professional basketball team which possessed a great deal of strengths, as well as weaknesses. However, despite the flaws coupled with multiple challenges, the team had one thing in common and one goal to accomplish – winning championships. Winning championships was not an easy task for the Chicago Bulls. What many people now overlook is that Michael Jordan played in the NBA for seven seasons before winning his first NBA title. It wasn't until the right collection of players, along with the appropriate coach, was assembled that the dynasty began to take shape. But during this time, Michael Jordan developed teamwork and intelligence from within, in fact, organically. One of the most powerful attributes about Michael Jordan on the basketball court was the fact that he possessed a championship mentality. In essence, he not only knew what type of attitude he......
