Most people have an automatic belief that a child who is raised by heterosexual-parents is better off than a child who is raised by homosexual-parents. The belief held by most people may make the task seem more socially acceptable. However, there is no law against it, nor is it written in stone that a child should not be raised by homosexual-parents. Furthermore, with the same amount of love, structure, effort, and stability homosexual-parents can be equally as nurturing to a child. The ideal family has always consisted of having two parents which consist of a male and a female. Nevertheless, having parents of the opposite sex does not mean a child with homosexual-parents cannot get the same adequate amount of love. A child with homosexual-parents has two parents who work and take care of them also. Both heterosexual-parents and homosexual-parents can and do show the same amount of love by spending time with the child, talking to the child, working to provide for the child, and showing the child affection. Homes with heterosexual-parents may seem to have more structure and balance because they do not appear to have to deal with any outside negativity. Negativity can result from a number of things such as race and social status, not just the marital status of the parents. Nevertheless, both a home usually has one or more parents who works and provides for the family and there is typically one parent who devotes a lot of time and energy in focusing on the family, especially on the child. Both types of parents can have rules which have to be obeyed, household chores which have to be done, and family time which is a must for raising a well-developed child in todayÃ¢â¬â¢s society. Therefore, if heterosexual and homosexual parents disregard whatever outside negativity they may encounter and focus on the family and focus on what is important there will be the same amount of structure and balance to a child with either type of parents. Everything in life that a person believes is worthwhile takes effort and time. Parents have to put forth great effort and huge amounts of time in raising a child, especially if a parent wants a well-rounded, well-mannered, happy, smart, and what they believe to be a perfect child. Both heterosexual and homosexual parents can work towards achieving the ultimate goal of raising a perfect child. However, even though at times it may appear to be an easier challenge for heterosexual -parents, it does not mean the same goal cannot be achieved by homosexual-parents. For the sake of the child both types of parents must put forth a worthwhile effort and spend time focusing on what is best for the child. Society, as a whole, automatically has a preconceived idea that heterosexual-parents create a more stable environment for a child. However, the preconceived idea of society does not mean homosexual-parents cannot create a stable environment for a child. The two different types of parents must ensure stability for a child. Stability enables a child to focus on academic achievements and being a well-behaved child who has a stable home life does not seem to get themselves into as much trouble when compared to a child without a stable home environment. In other words, it does not matter if the child has heterosexual-parents or parents who are homosexual, stability, love, structure, and effort plays a major role in the proper development of a child.

Daniel Ramirez Mrs. Toth Period 2 11/29/12 Plans of Reconstruction During the Civil War was the beginning of the Reconstruction era that took place up until the late 1870Ã¢â¬â¢s, which for some was a success but a failure to others. Not only was it a civil rights movement but it also re-created the southern way of life, temporarily divided a political party, broke down another, and affected the nation in ways that would have long-term consequences.Two of the three major Reconstruction plans were that of President Lincoln and Vice President Johnson that both sought to readmit the south as quickly as possible. Lincoln maintained that the political leadership of the South had seceded. His plan did not exclude people like JohnsonÃ¢â¬â¢s did. President Lincolns plan of reconstruction was light on punishment of the South so that he could reincorporate the Southern section back into the Union.He argued that because of the fact that the government was indivisible secession was politicall y impossible, and that the war was a result of only a small rebellion that violated the authority and laws of the government. With this in mind his design of reconstruction; readmission of each state was based on 10 percent of the voters pledging loyalty to the US knowing that no more than that would be probable which rendered the radical republicans 50 percent demand illogical.Though Lincoln and JohnsonÃ¢â¬â¢s plan did have similar ideas there were few differences some of which were even seen as illogical, amongst them was the right to grant pardons to the same people that he claimed he wanted to exclude power from. This did not help the reconstruction plan it in fact it irritated Northerners who saw senators of former offices in the Confederacy reclaiming their places in U. S. senates. Under Andrew Johnson's restoration African AmericaÃ¢â¬â¢s rights were not safe, as he vetoed the Civil Rights bill.This did not pass since Congress overturned his veto and made the Civil Rights bill an act. LincolnÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬Å"10 percentÃ¢â¬ plan, while perhaps not the greatest for bringing the nation together, was the best for the promoting the principles of freedom and equal rights for all in the newly reformed union. His plan unlike JohnsonÃ¢â¬â¢s protected the new rights of the African Americans, and provided a balance between the rights of whites and them.LincolnÃ¢â¬â¢s plan also made it easier for states to rejoin the Union, because this was such a very forgiving plan, it was better than JohnsonsÃ¢â¬â¢. Under Lincoln's Plan, it would be easiest for Confederate states to rejoin the Union, except for the three that were excluded, because the Radical controlled Congress would not permit these statesÃ¢â¬â¢ representatives to join the federal government. If the nation had agreed to Lincoln's Plan, racism may have been more easily overcome, and the Union would be reunited in a strong bond because of the reprieve granted.

InÃ English grammar, aÃ dependent clause is a group of words that has both a subject and a verb but (unlike an independent clause) cannot stand alone as a sentence. Its a clause that implies that there is more to come and is incomplete. It is also known as a subordinate clause. Types of Dependent Clauses Dependent clauses include adverb clauses, adjective clauses, and noun clauses. They can appear at any point in a sentence and start with signal words. AdverbialÃ clauses start with a subordinating conjunction and answer wh- questions such as when something happened, where, and why as well as how and to what degree, such as As soon as winter hits, her nephew earns money shoveling the neighbors driveways. It answers the question when (with the subordinating conjunctionÃ as soon as) and has a verb in it, hits. The subject of that verb is winter, but the clause cannot stand on its own as a sentence, as it is incomplete.Ã An adjective clause functions to describe a noun in the sentence and starts with a relative pronoun, as in, Her nephew, who is industrious, shovels neighbors driveways in the winter to earn money. The clause describes the nephew, contains a verb (is) and starts with a relative pronoun (who). A noun clause functions as a noun in the sentence, as in, That looks delicious. I want some of whatever shes having. The clause functions as a noun in the sentence (it could be replaced by a noun or noun phrase, such as that cake), contains a subject (she) and a verb (is having) but cannot stand on its own. Some signal words for dependent noun clauses include relative pronouns and subordinating conjunctions such as: what, whoever, whether, that, which, how, and why. Youll be able to tell what kind of clause something is by looking at how it functions in the sentence. For example, the clause in The city where I come from is Spokane is an adjective clause because it describes the noun city. In this next example, Where I come from is much larger than this town the clause functions as a noun. In Shes planning to move toÃ where I come from, the clause functions as an adverb because it answers the question of where the person will move.Ã Locations in a Sentence Although exceptions can be found, a dependent clause at the beginning of a sentence is usually followed by aÃ commaÃ (as in this sentence). However, when a dependent clause appears at the end of a sentence, its not usually set off with a comma, though again (as in this sentence), there are exceptions. They can also be located inside other dependent clauses. Authors Peter Knapp and Megan Watkins explain: There can be levels of complexity within complex sentences. Within a dependent clause, for instance, there can be another dependent clause. For example, in the following sentence there is a main clause..., a dependent clause in an adverbial relationship with the main clause (in italics), and a dependent clause [bold italics] in an adverbial relationship with the first dependent clause:Ã¢â¬â¹If you want to survive the elements when you go hiking, you should remember to bring along a drink, pocket knife, whistle, map, torch, compass, blanket and food.Ã¢â¬â¹(Knapp and Watkins) Resources and Further Reading Knapp, Peter, and Megan Watkins.

Carpet Capital Culture Clash Issues The primary subject matter of this case concerns the issues faced in an U.S. company with a large percentage of immigrant Latino workers and the resulting interaction with their original Anglo workforce.

The restroom One of the cultural challenges that company is facing is soiled toilet paper scattered or piled all over the plantÃ¢â¬â¢s bathroom floors.

InÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦Therefore, Mexican workers tend to be very dedicated to their jobs. Mexicans do not hesitate to go for the extra miles to work longer hours to make additional money to support their family. One major cultural clash between Anglo Americans and Mexicans are concept of timeliness. Punctuality is not big concern for Mexicans. American culture featured promptness and timeliness; the Mexican culture could care less. Mexicans believe their supervisors know everything and should always show respect to authority and not ever questioning their supervisors and elderly ever. It is considered disrespectful to question supervisors and elderly. Therefore, in this case stud y, it is possible that Jose Alvarado could be a younger Latino manager. So, that could explain why he is having trouble and difficulty to supervise his Latino workers. Also, keeping a harmony relationship with their own fellows are also very important to them. Therefore, it will be a challenge task for Alvarado to criticize his fellow Latino workers. This could possibly be the reason why Alvarado is dissatisfied with his new title. In the workplace, the cultural differences in terms of personal sensitivity are the source of many, if not most, of the conflicts between Mexicans and Americans.

Question: Write an essay on "Comparative Issues in International Management". Answer: 1. Introduction: The concept of the business ethics associated decisions all aspects of the business operations of the business organizations. The ethical considerations of the business operations help the business organizations to conduct the business in a smoother way. The scope of ethical issues in the multinational business is very high. The positive ethical considerations are necessary for the proper practice of the business operations in different countries. The ethical practices can boost the brand image of the business organizations. In the multinational business operations, the companies may face high level of market competition regarding the services of the business. In order to get the sustainable competitive advantages, the multinational companies need to build a high brand image by conducting the business operations by maintaining the ethical considerations (Ferrell Fraedrich, 2016). The business organizations used to face the ethical issues regarding the different culture of the differ ent countries in which they are operating. The political environments of the operating countries are also a big factor behind the ethical issues of the multinational business organizations. The governmental role and decisions regarding the business operations and national legislations have a major influence over the ethical considerations in the business of the MNCs. In order to maintain the ethical considerations in the business operations, the MNCs must have to know the different factors influencing the ethical issues (Weiss, 2014). The ethical issues and the reasons behind the issues have to be analyzed properly to understand by the MNCs operating in different countries. In this report, the ethical issues regarding the multinational business operations in Indian market has been analyzed. Different types of issues faced in the business operations of the MNCs have been analyzed in this report. Then the basic models of the business ethics have been discussed. The features of practicing the ethical considerations in the multinational business operations in the Indian market have been also analyzed. Finally the relationships between the social responsibility and ethical considerations have been analyzed and some recommendations are given after summarizing the findings of the reports. 2. Main Part: Social challenges faced by the multinational companies: The main challenges faced by the multinational companies in different countries are associated with the local culture of the company. Initially the understanding of the local culture of the operating countries is a great challenge to the MNCs, but it is vital to the MNCs for practicing the business operations by the proper maintenance of the ethical considerations. Every business n the organization has its own culture which affects the working style of the employees and the business operations in the local and global market. In order to main the ethical considerations regarding the culture, high level of understanding and following of the local culture is required (Rossouw Van Vuuren, 2013). Corporate Social Responsibility is associated with the commitment and well-being of the community through the business operations. At present, the business organizations are competing for developing the good brand image by the CSR activities. The basic concepts behind the practices of the CSR activities are the ethical consideration of the business operations. According to Shaw (2016), the CSR activities are ethical considerations of the company and the business organizations must have to think about the well-beings of the people who are getting affected by their business operations. The economic, social, environmental and human rights all are the parts of the ethical considerations regarding these responsibilities. MNCs should always endorse a non-discriminatory policy regarding the employment. Apart from the payments, the employees of a business organization should get all the required benefit from the employer organizations. In this context, the multinational companies used to face serious issues as the requirements and the employee welfare concepts varies from the home country of the organizations to the operating country. The health and safety policies for the employees are different in different countries. The multinational companies are facing the problems regarding the different health and safety polices in different countries (Hoffman Frederick Schwartz, 2014). The multinational companies are required to maintain the government taxation laws and should pay the right amount of tax to the government of the operating country. It has been found that maximum ethical issues found in the business operations of the multinational companies are in the area of the taxation laws. Basic models of the business ethics: In order to maintain the ethical considerations of the business operations, there are some models of the business ethics. The main concept behind the business ethics the thought Honesty is the best policy. The children are taught this though in the schools and in the family. The ethical considerations of the business are about conducting the business operations with honesty (Buchholtz Carroll, 2012). There are some global guidelines for the ethical behavior of the business operations are known as model of business ethics: Codes of conduct: Developing written code of conducts forces the business organizations towards the honesty in the business operations. Codes of conducts include the general instructions to the business organizations and mission statement for expressing the core values of the business and the real life ethical issues against each of the specific business activities. The codes of conduct help the business organizations to take proper decision regarding the maintenance of the business ethics (Chell et al., 2014). The issues covered in this model are the behavior with the outside public, the supervisors, the co-workers and subordinates. Employee Handbook: Maximum business organizations provide a comprehensive handbook to their employees regarding the ethical policies in their business. The specific expectations regarding the behavior of the employees are written in the handbook. The non-disclosures, compensation rules, work schedule, safety, employee benefits, companys property and leave policies are written in the handbooks. The conditions for conflicts of interest and breaching of the confidentiality of the written codes are also written in the handbooks (DesJardins McCall, 2014). Professional Codes: The professional codes are use fro assisting the professionals for working in their workplaces. Many of the business organizations work by self regulated rules. In these organizations, the management of the organization is responsible for deciding whether a person is fit for the organizations or not. In this type of case, the professional codes should be universal throughout all the workplaces of the organization. The organizations are not supposed to use different types of rules for different people (Jennings, 2014). Government Codes: Every government has its unique rules regarding the business ethics and the professional behavior of the employees of the business organizations. The code of ethics by the individual government of the country in which the business organizations is working has to be maintained (Carroll Buchholtz, 2014). The codes are associated with the HRM policies, external business operations like import and export of materials, taxations and the use of government property. Plus decision-making model: This model was developed by the Ethics resource Center in the year if 1924 regarding the ethical standards of the public and private organizations. The model has an ethical guideline which defines six steps for the ethical decision making. The steps are: defining the problem, identifying the alternatives, evaluations of the alternatives, make the decision, implement the decision and evaluate the decision. In the section of the alternative identification, all the alternatives should be justified with the current legislations and ethical principles of the country in which the business organizations are operations their business. The evaluations of the alternatives should also be done by considering the right and wrong regarding the ethical principles and the decision makers on sense (Koslowski, 2013). The selection of one of the alternative should ensure that the optimum ethical considerations should get from the alternatives. In the last phase of the decisi on making model, the decision makers should determine whether the selected option is able to resolve the problem by maintaining all the ethical considerations of the business activities of the organization. Features of the business ethics in Indian market: The features of the business ethics in the Indian market are as follows: Ethical values: Business ethics are associated with the morality of the business operations in todays world. The private and public business organizations have the responsibility of taking care of the well beings of the society. Business organizations affect the society by their products or services. Therefore, it is needed that the business organizations conduct their activities by self control, self scarifies and should keep the interest regarding the community at large significant value of ethics (Stanwick Stanwick, 2013). Relative term: Ethics is actually a relative term in the area of morality and immorality. It differs depending on the perspectives of the individuals as the concept of moral and immoral activities depends on the individual thinking of the persons (Berger Herstein, 2014). Interest of society: Business morals infers that business ought to first do great to the general public and after that to itself. Business is a vital foundation and has a social obligation to ensure the enthusiasm of every one of those gatherings who are specifically or in a roundabout way identified with the association like workers, shareholders and shoppers and so on to add to the achievement of business (Ramesh Goel, 2014). Business social relationship: Business morals set the terms and principles to comprehend the societal relationship of business. It demonstrates what society anticipates from business and what it supposes about the business (Abend, 2014). Framework: The government framework regarding the ethical considerations of the business operations should be maintained by the business organizations. Business organizations should be limited the activities under the social, cultural and legal aspects of India (Poruthiyil, 2013). Facilities protection of social groups: Business ethics are concerned with facilities of the consumers, shareholders and the social groups associated with the business operations. The priority should be given to the area of overall interest of social good. This approach helps the business organizations to develop a good brand value and expansion in the target market (Reynolds, 2015). Not in opposition to profit making: The business ethics are not against the profit of the business, it is actually against the profit making by cheating any one. It straightly says that the business organizations should make profit by right value to the consumers and other stakeholders of the business operations. The employees should not be exploited and the consumers or any investors should not be cheated by the business organizations for making more profit from the business operations (Hill, Cronk Wickramasekera, 2013). Willful acceptance: Business ethics cannot be imposed on any organizations by any fixed rules or polices. The ethics should be realized by the management of the business organizations and should be accepted by the self realization. Ethics in advertising: India is a culture focused country and has some ethical considerations regarding the content of the advertisements. The advertisements should be passed by the censor board before displaying publicly. The general ethical principle of providing advertising is to display the proper information regarding the products or services if the business organizations. This is not ethical if a business organization shows any false information for attracting the customers towards their products or services (Kolk, 2016). Ethical challenges faced by the multinational companies in the Indian market: India is a developing country, but represents an interesting case of understanding the business ethics regarding the modern business. The country is the land of many great souls like Ramakrishna, Chankya, Buddha and many other spiritual gurus. The ethical principle of the country regarding the business operations are influenced by the Indian history and culture. Currently the country is playing the leading role in the global business community. Ethical responsibilities of the business operations are the activities which are not expected form the business organizations or prohibited by the members of the society or management board. However, the ethical principles are not codified into laws (Wild, Wild Han, 2014). Many of the multinational companies have faced some ethical issues in the business operations in India. General Motors violated the testing norms in the year of 2013. The cars have to pass the emission test by the Indian government before launching in the market. In that year, the company sent their already approved engines of their existing car models in the new model of Tavera (Mathew, 2015). The Indian government investigated the new car models later and the engine fails to meet the government specifications regarding the emission level. The company accepted the ethical violation and announced the recall of 1.14 lack Chevrolet Taveras in that year (Wild, Wild Han, 2014). Another incident of violating the ethical principles of the business operations is the example of Coca-Cola. The company faced issues regarding the environmental violation regarding the water. The company opened production house in Rajasthan where people are suffering from water problem. Already there was lack of water and the company was using the water for the production of soft drinks. Apart from use the water, the wastes of the company was polluting the air and water of the locality. The company had the valid license of conducting the production in the area. For this reason, the government was unable to take any step against the company. However the local people and societies raised voices against the company. In order to resolve the issue, the company developed two huge artificial water bodies of fresh water (Coca-cola.com, 2016). This was a good CSR activity which helped the organization to develop a good brand image. They have also improved the waste management system for ensu ring the less harm to the environment of the locality.
