Dr. W. Edwards Deming

...DR. W. EDWARDS DEMING (1900–1993) Dr. W. Edward Deming is best known for reminding management that most problems are systemic and that it is management's responsibility to improve the systems so that workers (management and non-management) can do their jobs more effectively. Deming argued that higher quality leads to higher productivity, which, in turn, leads to long-term competitive strength. The theory is that improvements in quality lead to lower costs and higher productivity because they result in less rework, fewer mistakes, fewer delays, and better use of time and materials. With better quality and lower prices, a firm can achieve a greater market share and thus stay in business, providing more and more jobs. When he died in December 1993 at the age of ninety-three, Deming had taught quality and productivity improvement for more than fifty years. His Fourteen Points, System of Profound Knowledge, and teachings on statistical control and process variability are studied by people all over the world. His books include: Out of the Crisis (1986), The New Economics (1993), and Statistical Adjustment of Data (1943). In emphasizing management's responsibility, Deming noted that workers are responsible for 10 to 20 percent of the quality problems in a factory, and that the remaining 80 to 90 percent is under management's control. Workers are responsible for communicating to management the information they possess regarding the system. Deming's approach requires an......

George W

...George W. Bush’s Fabricated War Scince 2003, U.S soldeiers, have been fighting and dying in the Middle East. After some time, they have begun to realize that they are not sure why. There were many reasons givin to the people about why we must promptly invade Iraq, which turned out to be mostly all false. All of these reasons came together, and eventually matured into a pseudo-war of greed and manipulation. To Paul Wolfowitz, the Iraq war was simply going to be the final stage of the Gulf War, which Bush senior had started in 1990. By 1997, he and a group of other neocons had formed PNAC, a think tank whose primary mission was the Iraq War. The united states secretary of treasurey Paul Oneil went public saying that on Jan 30, 2001, at George W. bush’s first national security council, Bush brings up convictions saying that Saddam Hussein needs to be dealt with. Oneil says that that the overall tone of the meeting was “trying to find a way to invade Iraq”. News reports and Articles began popping up everwhere stating that Saddam Hussein was hording weapons of mass destruction, or simply WMD’s. Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, known by the Central Intelligence Agency simply as "Curveball", was an Iraqi citizen claiming that he had worked as a chemical engineer at a plant that manufactured mobile biological weapon laboratories as part of an Iraqi weapons of mass destruction program. He was found to have fabricated his stories of WMDs in Iraq. It turns out that Rafid was a German......

W; T and Donne

...Through a comparative analysis of Edson’s W;t and Donne’s Holy sonnets, the metaphysical questions of life are illuminated, with the paradigms associated with the Jacobean period, as expressed in the sonnets, effectively appropriated to address a 20th century audience in W;t. These explicit and implicit links allow for an intensified understanding of the acceptance of death and the human quest to come to terms with salvation/redemption, further conveying the relationship between text and context. Thus the reciprocal values of these texts’ transcend their contextual limitations. Their meaning immortalised, they remain forever relevant to the human attempt to derive meaning. Through a comparative study of the texts, the eternal paradox of the complex journey (and process of suffering) required to realise the importance of accepting embracing values of faith, simplicity and, human mortality, in the process of achieving redemption (and forming a new identity )has been exemplified. “And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die”. This use of personification encapsulates the beginning of a journey both Vivian and Donne undertake upon reaching a state of “salvation anxiety”. Immersed in the death of his four still born children, and the plague ridden society that was in the process of forming the first cracks in what would be a paradigm shift away from blind faith, Donne initially struggled to accept his mortality, using “verbal swordplay” as a means in which to “run and......

W. D. Ross

...W. D. Ross PHIL 245 – D4A3 General Ethics Emilia C. Coleman Benedictine University April 24, 2013 Abstract According to Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (2012) on W. D. Ross, “Sir William David Ross made significant contributions to the translation and interpretation of the works of Aristotle and to moral philosophy. His work in ancient philosophy, especially his various commentaries on Aristotle, is still considered to be of the highest caliber. Many believe that Ross's work in this area is his most valuable contribution to philosophy. However, his main writings in moral philosophy are of lasting if not equal value. His The Right and the Good is arguably one of the most important works of moral philosophy published in the twentieth century” (p. 1). This essay reviews ethical pluralism. Ross contends that there is plurality of irreducible moral rules that are basic in moral thought.  W. D. Ross Ross argues there is no one single moral principle or rule. Instead, Ross thinks we can make moral betterment by learning more of our moral duties, and doing our best at balancing conflicting understanding and values. According to Ross review of Utilitarianism, which Ross considers has limited aspects of the relationships between people: the relationship of harmer to harmed and the relationship of beneficent to beneficiary.  Ross advances that we have self-evident prima facie moral duties, and intrinsic value. These duties are “prima facie” because they can be......

Gore & Associates. He presented himself to Bill Gore, shook hands firmly, looked him in the eye, and said he was ready for anything. What happened next was one thing for which Jack was not ready. Gore replied, “That’s fine, Jack, fine. Why don’t you look around and find something you’d like to do.” Three frustrating weeks later he found that something, dressed in jeans, loading fabric into the mouth of a machine that laminated the company’s patented Gore-Tex membrane to fabric.

A&W Company Analysis

...Company Analysis: A&W Canada Company Background History A&W is a fast food restaurant that is world famous not only for its food product, but mainly for its original beverage; the A&W root beer. In 1919, a man by the name of Roy Allen decided to set up a drink stand at a parade, which was honoring World War I veterans returning home to Lodi, California. He offered a new product called root beer. The creamy beverage was a great success; so much that he took on a business partner by the name of Frank Wright. In 1922 Allen and Wright with initials combined, created a brand for the beverage calling it the A&W Root Beer. ("History of A&W Root Beer," 2014 Paragraph 2). The first permanent root beer stand was located in Lodi, California and a second location in Sacramento. A&W was the first fast food company to introduce the “drive-in’ and in 1924 Allen decided to peruse franchising. This made A&W the first franchised restaurant in America and by 1933 there were over 170 franchised A&W stands. ("History of A&W Root Beer," 2014 Paragraph 3). Throughout the years the ownership was changed but the company was still a success so much that the consumers wanted to be able to enjoy the product at home too and in 1971 A&W cans and bottles were introduced for sale. ("History of A&W Root Beer," 2014 Paragraph 5, 6). In 1956, the first A&W drive-in restaurant in Canada opened in Winnipeg. The restaurant provided burgers, fries, onion......

Donne and W; T

...Through the comparative study of John Donne's poetry and Margaret Edson's play W;t we are shown the individual context of both writers and their perspectives on relationships and death. Donne represents his assurance of life after death in his Holy Sonnets. Additional to this in his earlier poetry, his valuing of deep relationship being critical to the human experience is reflected by his renaissance belief. Edson's individual post-modern context is apparent in the appropriation and rewriting of Donne's ideas to reflect her own perspective. This is further emphasized in the choices made by each composer to represent their ideas in different textual forms. Before Donne changed to his Protestant Christian faith in 1601 he believed that the meaning of life was through love. Donne ignores the reality of love and instead writes about what is outside reality, the metaphysical. In 1601 Donne secretly married a young seventeen-year-old girl by the name of Anne More. Donne wrote about how the love between him and his wife would go past this life and travel with them to the afterlife. After her death, Donne wrote “A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning” which describes his undying love for her. Donne made sure that his audience understood the significance of relationships, through the self-importance of "twin compasses"," thy soul, the fix'd foot", "making my circle perfect". The 17th century context is reflected in the representation of circular perfection which lifts the status of......

...end of the divisions that had marked the essential character of the CW: the ideological split between capitalism and communism. In 1989, the DDR was 4o years old and the East German leadership was prepared to celerbraite its anniversary. At what should have been an event to consolidate the country, the tide was turning against the regime. Gorbachevs reforms had important consequences for the existence of E germany as a separate country. The DDR was a product of Cold War tensions, which had prevented the unification of Germany after WW2. Without these tensions there seemed little reason for Germany to remain divided. Honecker recognized that the DDR could still have a reason to exist if it remained socialist and therefore different from W Germany. Honecker was not in favour of any reform, but the E german population could not be isolated from events in the rest of euope. Large numbers of East Germans had fled from the counrty via Hungary during the summer of 1989, but even more serious for the government were those who were staying put. Gorbys reforms of communism in the Usr had encouraged many E Germanys to push for change. Political groups were formed with huge crowds of demonstrators shouting ‘we are stayin’. honecker seemed paralysed by events. He was seriously ill for much of 1989, and his absence made the government halt decision making.
