[Background conversation]
So Bucky Fuller died 30 years ago and everybody went, “Bucky Fuller’s dead, we should wrap up all the stuff, put it in an archive.” And I went, “Wait a minute! This is the guy who said, ‘this is not me, this is yesterday’s breakfast. And when this is gone doesn’t mean I am gone, it means that you need to find other ways to communicate with me.’” And I actually just got an email yesterday from a woman who said, “Oh! I’ve been dreaming about Bucky Fuller and I actually saw him in the mall the other day.” And I am like, “Whoa! This is pretty interesting she’s in Australia.” And I think that his influence is like everywhere.
What I decided was that I was going to do -- that he had conducted a 56 year experiment to determine and document what one individual could achieve that could not be accomplished by any religion, government, organization of any kind. So it’s basically what one man can do and he documented it and I said, “Well, when somebody does an experiment, you don’t just archive it away. You actually examine it.” So that’s what I’d spent the last 30 years doing literally. And doing what he told us to do, which is what all the great teachers say, they all say, don’t believe a word I say, don’t believe a word I wrote, right? Checked it out against your own personal experience, take what works and use it, what doesn’t -- I say actually like put it aside because when your perspective changes, as I have had happen for myself many times, then you might say, “Oh! That does actually work now for me.”

Organisational Theory and Design

...that their approach to solving a particular problem is justified. However an approach claimed by one inventor to be successful can be seen as another as unsuccessful. This means there is no one universally accepted approach to problem solving. Even for a specific problem there is no one specific approach to solving that specific problem. This has lead inventors to making trade-offs when inventing. This in itself is another conflicting discussion. Making trade trade-offs is relative and there is on universally accepted approach in deciding what to trade-off against what. Another fundamental concern of trade-offs is it incomplete fulfillment of various competing requirements. This effectively means that trade-offs are inherently suboptimal designs. The discussion above tells us that no organization can survive in this modern competitive business environment without being innovative. Innovation has been a key for the survival of any modern business organization. The big and successful companies have entire departments that look after innovation. These organizations have research and development departments that lead in ensuring that new products, processes and technologies are introduced to customers regularly. Some organizations have even embedded innovation as a cross-cutting theme that is owned by every manager and in some cases every staff. The leading companies like Toyota are constantly producing new brands of vehicles to the market. This company already has various......

What Is It About Theories in the Human Sciences and Natural Sciences That Makes Them Convincing?

...Over the past thousands of years natural science has been the focal point of scientific research, drawing in the world’s greatest minds as they attempt to solve the most puzzling and intriguing of questions. One such mind is Newton, who’s simple observations of an apple falling from a tree led to the recognition of one of the most remarkable scientific breakthroughs of our millennium, gravity. However, another field of science has emerged in recent times, the field of the humanistic sciences. While natural sciences concentrate on chemistry, physics, and biology, human sciences surround history, economics, anthropology, and psychology. However, as these fields attempt to answer age-old questions concerning human behaviour, and the laws of the world, it is easy to wonder to what extent we can accept their discoveries as fact. Furthermore, what causes these scientific fields to be so intuitively appealing? Finally, as the majority of research performed in both fields relies on observation, to what extent can we trust observations utilizing sense perception? And what are the limitations of this trust in our human sense perception? Despite these several questions, the natural sciences serves a significantly more convincing field than human sciences, as more scientific research can be validated and accepted as truth. Furthermore, the human sciences relies almost solely off perception of past events, or behaviour, which can be contorted by bias, as well as several other limiting......

Organization Theory and Design activities. Ultimately determining how efficiently the desired goals will be acquired. Questions this structure will need to confront will include the amount of specialisation in areas of work and responsibility, the levels of management and their consequent size, the grouping of departments together for functionality of expertise, and the kind of integrative mechanism for control over work done. One of the more common types of organisational structures found within today’s society that has attempted to answer these questions of direction and efficiency is known as Bureaucracy. The Bureaucratic model in itself is not a functioning organisational structure within itself, but more of a hypothetical guide to creating ones own business design based on individual circumstances. Bureaucracy is very similar to such things as blue prints, simple because both are descriptive in a how to build nature, but neither is the final product. The modern day concept of bureaucracy was developed by a German sociologist named Max Weber (Though the original term ‘bureaucracy’ evolved during the eighteenth century, and is "attributed to the Frenchman ‘de Gournay’"). Weber advanced his concept of bureaucracy throughout the nineteenth century by studying power and authority though out history, and discovered that in early societies three different types could be identified. The first was made up of ‘Traditional authority’ and was based on the belief that rulers had a natural right to rule.......

What Are the Main Motivation Theories and How Could Science of Delight Replace Them?

...There are many different motivation theories that are used day to day in the running of many businesses. The two main ones are Taylor Maslow (‘hierarchy of needs’) and Hertzberg (two factor theory) Maslow’s theory is about how everyone has a ‘hierarchy of needs’ which is that everyone has similar types of needs, which can be sorted into a hierarchy. There are five main categories physiological needs (food, clothes, accommodation), safety (security from danger, safe working conditions), social (need to make friends and feel like you belong somewhere), esteem (having respect for others and self respect) and self-actualisation (achieving ones potential through actions and achievements). Maslow believed that if these were achieved then the maximum potential of the employee can be seen. Science of delight could easily replace this theory as one of the main issues on the hierarchy of needs is self-actualisation. Science of delight is all about how if employees know what the customer wants and needs it can empower them to do be more efficient in the work place. As Maslow states ‘A healthy man is primarily motivated by his needs to develop and actualize his fullest potentialities and capacities’; this directly links to science of delight, so can science of delight thus replace this theory, if in a way it is already included in it. To prove science of delight has the ability to replace Maslow’s theory, stronger evidence that the concept works would emphasise to the employees......

Intellegent Design vs. Theory

...1 Religion in Schools – Intelligent Design vs. Theory Stephanie C. Hansen Western International University April, 2006 Intelligent Design should be taught in schools, not only viewed as a religious theory. The debate continues on what roles the school should take on controversies regarding Theory of Evolution vs. Intelligent Design. Opponents insist that this is a “veiled way” of getting religion into the classroom, and that it should not be allowed. One of the main reasons to have Freedom of Speech is so “Truth” can emerge from vigorous debate on all sides of every important issue. Why then should we Americans ever want to suppress the free discussion of important issues in our public schools? (William McGinnis, 2006) Opponents would insist that Intelligent Design has no part in science. On the contrary, the more Intelligent Design is argued, the more scientific it proves to be. In the book Darwin’s Black Box (Behe) the author contends that “Darwin’s response is no longer adequate because of scientific advances that have occurred since Darwin’s death”. Thus, the Theory of Evolution deserves to be revisited. It wasn’t until after his (Darwin’s) death those life forms could be inspected on a molecular level. Therefore, it would also be “scientific” to re-evaluate the Intelligent Design concept on a scientific level since it has been determined “scientifically” that “even in their most basic forms, various organisms are so complex that......

Theory of Caring Science

...Theory of Caring Science - - The nursing theory is essentially a set of beliefs, ideas, thought, and hypotheses that are influenced from former nursing representations that have a structured view of the purposes of nursing attempting to explain the correlation of each concept with predictability. (personal experience with nursing theory). This paper will address the core elements of Dr. Jean Watson’s theory of caring science. We will scrutinize the essential key concepts of the theory and its relationship with the other elements, emphasize its effects in a clinical situation, and how it views the nursing policies with definite personal examples. Nursing theories and having knowledge of the theories are important to any nurse. They serve as guides as to how a nurse should treat patients mentally and psychologically, aside from the structured education system a nurse goes through typically. Nursing theories predict and try to explain phenomenon that relates to nursing, giving nurses the necessary mindset to deal with clinical situations that are sometimes out of educational premises. It also provides them insight on what direction to take with their profession, if they pursue such a thing. It strengthens ideas that nurses already know, and encourages them to seek out knowledge of what they need to know. Most importantly, nursing theories also effectively enforce implied rules of professional boundaries between the nurses and their patients. The theory of caring science......

...Polypeptide synthesis- transcription and translation Proteins are made up of polypeptides. Every organism needs to make their own proteins. The biochemical machinery in the cytoplasm of each cell has the capacity to make every protein from just 20 amino acids. The proteins it manufactures depend upon the instructions that are given by the DNA in the cell's nucleus. The process is that DNA provides the instructions in the form of a long sequence of nucleotides and the bases they possess. A complementary section of part of this sequence is made in the form of pre-mRNA, this is transcription. The pre-mRNA is spliced to form mRNA. The mRNA is used as a template to which complementary tRNA molecules attach to and the amino acids they carry are linked to form a polypeptide, this is translation. Transcription is the process of making pre-mRNA using part of the DNA as a template. The enzyme DNA helicase acts on a specific region of the DNA molecule to break the hydrogen bonds between the bases, causing the two strands to seperate and expose the nucleotide bases in that region. This causes the specific region called cistron to unwind. One of the strands is used as a template to make an mRNA copy.The enzyme RNA polymerase moves along one of the two DNA strands, known as the template strand causing the nucleotides on this strand to join with the individual complementary nucleotides from the pool which is present in the nucleus. Specific base pairing occurs so guanine joins with......

...that believers in Intelligent Design are capable of supporting Dr. Bawazer’s “Genetically Evolved Technology” while rejecting Darwinism. Intelligent Design is somewhat based off the existences or occurrences that have not yet been explained by man. This thought process is undoubtedly contradictory to Darwinism theories on evolution. Dr. Bawazar’s theories are based on research which, “aims to utilize droplet microfluidics to advance studies of solution-based mineralization and to develop new biomimetic materials engineering strategies… inspired by living organisms, such as bones, teeth, and seashells.” ( Regardless if Dr. Bawazar’s theories on genetic evolution prove to be true in the future, I believe that “research” aspect alone is more closely rooted with Intelligent Design because there is an unknown, or from religious views a “supernatural” element involved with his process. On the other side of the spectrum, Charles Darwin’s (Darwinism) theories are engrained by the scientific process of natural selection. As Edward Wilson writes in Intelligent Evolution, natural selection “states simply that if a population of organisms contains multiple hereditary variants in some trait, and if one of these variants succeeds in contributing more offspring to the next generation than the other variants, the overall composition of the population changes, and evolution has occurred.” (The Norton Reader, pg 950). Given Darwin’s theory of natural selection, there......

Theories of Systems Analysis and Design for Integrated Business Solutions

...Theories of Systems Analysis and Design for Integrated Business Solutions Xin Tian Herzing University Theories of Systems Analysis and Design for Integrated Business Solutions Introduction The word system comes from the Greek work “systema” defined as an organized relationship among functioning components or units. Business system analysis and design breaks down the entity’s components into its basic constituents for the purpose of studying how each component works with other components in the fulfillment of the business purpose (Grady, 2007). Business system analysis and design entails identifying the goals of an enterprise. Next, the analyst develops systems that will fulfill these goals through studying the basic components of the system with the aim of fulfilling the business’ goals in an efficient way. The analysis aspect of the system deals with what the systems should do while the design part outlines how the system will fulfill its purpose. A basic system will consists of two or several interrelated constituents. Each element of the system will consist of three properties. 1) Each component affects the functioning of the entire system. 2. Each component is affected by at least one other component in the system. 3. All subsystems of the components have the first two properties. Systems analysis and design for integrated business solutions entail three levels. The first level is......

There's No Room: a Look at Public Schools' Design for Science and Evolution

...There’s No Room: A look at public schools’ design for science and evolution Nicole McCormick PHI103: Informal Logic (GSK1216H) Instructor Micheal Pelt May 21, 2012 The 1987 Supreme Court ruling on the case of Edward v Aguillard, struck down a Louisiana Law requiring “balanced treatment” between “creation science” and evolution. The Supreme Court found “creation science” to be unconstitutional, a statute that forbade teaching evolution unless “creation science” was also taught. Edward v Aguillard made it clear you cannot teach creation science alongside evolution (Brown, Feb2012). This argument of if evolution should be taught in public schools has waged on for decades, and as long as some continue to believe in intelligent design while others in evolution, it is a battle that will no doubt continue on, with unnatural selections for some. Intelligent design is primarily a religious belief and not a scientific tenet, which forms the basis for why it should not be taught in public school science courses. This essay will discuss how evolution in public school science classrooms serves best with the national science curriculum, and how theories of creationism and intelligent design (ID), try as they may, have no place in public science classrooms. Research will begin with data that includes the said appropriateness of evolution, and how the study of evolution in school is in line with the teachings of biological science. Next, what will be considered are the......
