The Great Awakening was a series of religious rivals that swept over the American colonies during the middle of the 18th century, which resulted in many doctrinal changes. There are three main factors associated with the Great Awakening: the issues that helped begin the revivals, the people involved in them, and the end impact it had on the colonies of the New World. Unlike England, these revivals would prove to be absolute religious freedom for every religion. First, the Great Awakening was a religious movement during the 1730's and 1740's in which ministers presented powerful messages of salvation. At first churches were usually the center of a town used for worship, business, and social gatherings. The ministers were much more than preacher, but were served as doctors, teachers, and even counselors. Settlements began to grow rapidly, both in number and in size. The church was unable to meet the demands of the colonist that had spread out across the land due to difficulties in communication. Traveling preachers began to travel throughout the colonies and to preach about God anywhere they can. They began to preach liberal ideas from the traditional thoughts of each religion. The doctrines of the Arminians began to believe that man determines his own salvation, not God. This was an ideas not even fathomed before the movement. Second, preacher defined the Great Awakening. The beginning of the movement appeared among Presbyterians in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Led be the Tennent—a Scot-Irish immigrant and his four sons whom were all clergymen—they not only initiated the revivals, but they also helped to train preachers to bring sinners to experience evangelical conversion. Jonathan Edwards was perhaps the most profound theological mind in America. He began the idea of believing in salvation through good works and confirmed the need for dependence on God's...

The Federalist papers were written and ratified in the years of 1787 to 1788. They were created mostly by two of the most influential men of the post-Revolution period. It helped the budding nation create a unified and agreeably strong central government: Alexander Hamilton, a Federalist who wrote fifty-six papers, and James Madison, a Democratic Republican who wrote twenty-one papers; John Jay also had a hand in the writing of five papers. Every paper was written under the pen name Publius. However, today it is known that it was these three men who were the genius behind the works. Hamilton and Madison diligently worked together to write these papers. As time went on, they divided into two different political parties and a strong rivalry ensued. Although their opposition surfaced during the second presidential term, their separate papers foreshadow their eventual contention. Through their papers it became evident that they interpreted the Constitution much differently. Either through loose construction in the form of a strong federal government or strict construction in the idea that states' rights should be the most important factor of the new national government. They also foresaw Hamilton and Madison's splitting disagreements. Alexander Hamilton was a strong-willed Federalist, who had the genius necessary for becoming president. However, he was tragically killed by Aaron Burr in a duel. He was the most influential Federalist of his time and his National Debt still stands today. However, it has increased greatly since his time. Hamilton believed that the Constitution needed a loose construction or interpretation. This belief on the national government was evident in his Federalist writing. In paper No. 23, "The Necessity of a Government as Energetic as the One Proposed to the Preservation of the Union", he explains that there are principle purposes with which the national government was obligated...

Many companies devote significant resources to developing a stock option plan to compete in today's labor market. In addition, many companies believe these plans will motivate employees to behave like owners. The research and experience show that employee ownership can have a significant impact on corporate performance and employee motivation, but that ownership alone is not enough. The real impact occurs in those companies that create an environment in which employees are given the tools, training, and encouragement to become more involved as owners in a culture of lasting innovation. Can employee stock options have this impact? Are stock options an effective tool to build an ownership culture? What are the considerations? What are the barriers?

112 Silver Prayaas Leadership is one of the most observed and least understood phenomenon on earth. Burns (1978) remarks. The problem arises not only in understanding the operation of the theory but even in its definition Leadership is a complex and multifaceted phenomenon to which organizational and psychological research has been applied. A macro-level comparison of business organizations in India vis-a vis those of successful countries like Japan, America, Germany, France and Korea provide certain interesting information. Physical and human resource-wise comparison indicates that there may not be yawning gaps between Indian organizations and the organization of the countries cited above. While these countries have developed management styles in consonance with their cultural ethos, Leadership in organizations : An Indian perspective S W DESHPANDE A number of theories and models have been proposed of leadership in organisations by western theorists. These theories have worked well in those countries since they have been developed keeping in view, the cultural context. These models may be good there but they prove to be some what inadequate in the Indian cultural context. Indian organisations cannot forget that their leadership models come from their socio culture. Indian cultural is so accommodative that it welcomes noble thought coming from all over the world. The author has developed a leadership model which would befit Indian organisations. The model 'EAST MEETS WEST' could satisfy the needs of the Indian corporate world. Indian management experts had no choice but to depend on western perspectives because of the absence of a local database and theoretical framework. Leadership theory began as a one dimensional, internal and individualistic process in which only a leader 's personality traits or behaviors were considered. Situational elements, external to the leader-member dyad were subsequently added to the leadership equations as well as an acknowledgement of group processes. An important new growth stage was reached in the contingency era as leadership theory evolved from unidimensional to the multidimensional arena. Here the interaction of the leader, subordinates and the situation all became important in explaining leadership. Leadership theory was further advanced when the focus changed from leadership being primarily a top-down process to much more of a bottom-up process. Situational and...

Genetically Modified Food - Advantages Genetically Modified (GM) food has received a lot of flack from interest groups in the last few years, but I don't think that it is as bad as some claim it to be. For some, GM foods are thought to be harmful. What foods are potentially dangerous and what are the risks? I think that from a biologist point of view, that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Today, genetically engineered food is at the centre of the controversy. First, one must understand that plants can be modified in many ways and that the practice of changing our food's DNA is not new. Historically, people have been altering crops by choosing seeds from plants with desired characteristics for a long time. Likewise, plant breeders can and have been creating hybrids by crossing crops with wild relatives of the same family. This process also is not new; it uses simple pollen/embryo manipulation and can improve specific plant properties. Wide crosses, though, do not occur in nature, even with human intervention. There are boundaries that prohibit such mutations. One can't mix a mouse with an elephant, for instance. Genetic engineering allows geneticists to strengthen many organic food attributes. Here are what I think are a few advantages of genetic engineering. ¨ Herbicides last longer Herbicides are both expensive and harmful to the environment but necessary to ensure that weeds do not weaken crops. Through genetic engineering, plants can be designed to resist powerful herbicide. This reduces the amount of herbicide needed to get the job done, and so is less harmful to the environment, because fewer harmful herbicides are used. ¨ Weather tolerance Destruction brought on by frost costs the agricultural industry substantial sums each year. Genes from cold-water fish have been added to tobacco and potatoes to increase their resistance to cold temperature. This saves money and time....

Essays on Bluetooth Technology6 Looking after your teeth By the way if, you're wondering where the Bluetooth name originally came from, it named after a Danish Viking and King, Harald Blåtand (translated as Bluetooth in English), who lived in the latter part of the 10th century. Harald Blåtand united and controlled Denmark and Norway (hence the inspiration on the name: uniting devices through Bluetooth). He got his name from his very dark hair which was unusual for Vikings, Blåtand means dark complexion. However a more popular, (but less likely reason), was that Old Harald had a inclination towards eating Blueberries , so much so his teeth became stained with the colour, leaving Harald with a rather unique set of molars. And you thought your teeth were bad... Abstract This paper discusses what is Bluetooth and where it got its name from. It shows how in 1984 Ericsson Corporation began a study to examine radio links as an alternatives to the cables that linked its mobile phones with accessories. Out of this study came the specifications for Bluetooth wireless technology which means one no longer needs to connect, plug into, install, enable or configure the device settings . The paper describes the technology used, the IEEE standards utilized with Bluetooth, regulation of Bluetooth, its develoment and possible risks of utilizing Bluetooth. From The Paper "The Bluetooth Special Interest Group, or SIG, is a group of companies working together to promote and define the Bluetooth specifications. The Bluetooth SIG was founded by five companies to develop the Bluetooth concept as a viable wireless technology standard. The companies are Ericsson, Intel, IBM, Toshiba and Nokia. Other companies like Microsoft, Lucent, 3Com and Motorola later joined the Bluetooth SIG. To date, more than 1,500 companies have joined this group and the specifications are developed, published and promoted by the...

Censorship by definition is the prohibiting of words, images or ideas that are "offensive" to others. I feel that the laws governing film censorship should be more versatile. The teenagers of today are becoming more mature and adult-like at an earlier age. They are taught about the dangers of sex as well as drugs in Enrichment or in Personal and Social Education (P.S.E) and know more about certain subjects than adults today would have known when they were younger. I feel therefore it is ridiculous not to allow them to see films containing sex, drugs and violence on TV or at the cinema, until they are 18. In my opinion teenagers today are clearly mature enough to see these films at the age of 16, which is when they are able to finish their secondary education. At this stage they will have been taught everything they need to know. My main argument is that I feel that the laws on the classification of films are outdated. I believe that the 18 certificate and the 15 certificate should be abolished and replaced by a 16 certificate. This means that they will be able to see the films that they are (in my opinion) mature enough to see. My main argument is that I feel the laws surrounding film classification are outdated.

Everyone uses different defense mechanisms to help them get through frustrating experiences. There are three major types of defensive mechanisms that I use most frequently: rationalization, verbal aggression, and displacement. I often rationalize a situation before getting mad, that is, I often try to consider all courses of actions and choose one that will lead to my desired end result. Is it really worth it, or what is there to gain? Consequently, I often avoid a confrontation or bad a situation by taking to time to think before I speak. This avoidance of conflict helps me keep my stress level to a minimum at the same time it prevents be from speaking out sometimes. I began doing this as a child looking for ways to avoid arguing with my stepfather. He, like others I know, always enjoys a good argument. He is very talented in finding the shortcomings of others. As a boy I can remember arguments starting over a spot I missed while vacuuming the living room. But, only after repeated arguments, did I learn that it was not worth the aggravation to defend myself at all times. Because there are so many individuals like my stepfather that take pleasure in aggravating others for their personal enjoyment, is why I seek the rational answer to the problem. Instead of being drawn into the argument, I rationalize the situation and either try to ignore the problem or just walk away. I also have the tendency to be verbally aggressive when I feel angry or frustrated. Although I try to think before I speak during an argument, I often find myself so frustrated, I cannot verbally express myself and make sense at the same time. So, I usually end up exploding with verbal gibberish, bringing up non-related issues into the conversation. I...
