From the beginning of the Second World War, Adolf Hitler had a set of goals that he looked to accomplish; establish the Aryan Race as the supreme race over all others, abolish the Treaty of Versailles, expand German territory (Lebensraum), and defeat Communism. To manipulate the German people, he utilized propaganda regarding previous grievances such as Germany’s outcome from World War I and the economic situation of Germany to twist the general consensus into the hatred of Jews, “gypsies”, and other races deemed inferior to the Aryans. As for military strategy, Hitler felt that the best way to go about gaining territory was keep it as a “one-front” war, because it would keep the Wehrmacht from spreading out itself too much and overextending it’s supply lines. In addition, he devised the Blitzkrieg or “lightning war”, which meant that his forces were concentrated into a cohesive unit, so that the Panzer tanks would swoop in first, causing panic among enemy soldiers, and then these tanks would continue moving while the German foot soldiers took advantage of the confused enemy and pick them off.
While both his propaganda and innovative military strategies worked for a stretch of the war, Hitler’s strategy’s began failing from 1940 until his suicide in 1945 that were ultimately responsible for Germany’s loss in World War II. Hitler’s first began making mistakes when, in 1940, Hitler missed two major opportunities to defeat Britain when it was weakest. In June, when the allied defenses in France and Belgium collapsed, he ordered his tanks not to attack the British force of “338,000 soldiers” besieged on the beach at Dunkirk. In addition to this blunder, during the Battle of Britain, Hitler decided that he no longer needed to bomb the RAF bases and airfields, and switched to bombing residential and commercial buildings, giving the British a chance to recover and…...

...Failure As Confucius once said “Success depends upon previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure.” Some of history’s most influential people knew exactly what it was like to fail numerous times before they became successful. Walt Disney, one of the most creative and imaginative people was fired by a newspaper company because he was said to have “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” Abraham Lincoln one of the most influential leaders of the United States, had multiple failed business attempts, and while in the armed forces went to war as a captain and was degraded to a private when he returned.(Michalko, 6,8) Success takes hard work, dedication, long hours, pain, and a lot of disappointment. If some of the most influential people in American history have failed then why are others so afraid of it? When I asked a group of people about what they feared most when they tried something new most of them replied “failing.” When asked why, they didn’t really know. They just didn’t like the idea of not being successful. Successful people like to achieve high standards; they become so afraid of failure that it turns into a handicap. We let the fear hold us back from our true potential. This fear causes some people to not try something altogether because they are so afraid of the feeling associated with not accomplishing something. Today, we live in a society where failing or messing up is viewed as unacceptable, people want to do something...

...A distributed system is a collection of computers connected to a network of distributed middleware (software connecting client and database: software that manages the connection between a client and a database) . This allows the computers to communicate to each other and also share resources. While allowing the user to use the computer as he or she would use a single integrated computing facility. Examples of failures in a distributed system include, stop failure, Halt failure, Network Failure, and Distributed File System Namespace access failures. Distributed File System Namespace access failures in Windows On Windows Vista and later one of the following error messages may occur: Windows cannot access \\\ The connection may fail due to any of the following reasons: Failure to connect to a domain controller to obtain a DFSN namespace referral, Failure to connect to a DFSN server, Failure of the DFSN server to provide a folder referral. This error typically occurs because the DFSN client cannot complete the connection to a DFSN path. To resolve the issue , evaluate network connectivity, name resolution, and DFSN service configuration (How to troubleshoot Distributed File System Namespace , 2010). Evaluate Connectivity "connectivity" refers to the client's ability to contact a domain controller or a DFSN server. If a client cannot complete a network connection to a domain controller or to a DFSN server, the DFSN request fails. Use the following tests to......

Reconstruction: a Post-Civil War Failure

...Jimmy Guillén Mr. Laird A.P. U.S. History 21 January 2010 Reconstruction: A Post-Civil War Failure Viewed as an era as a whole, Reconstruction takes place between the years 1865-1877 or between the Civil War’s end and the Union army’s withdrawal from the South. Reconstruction’s main goals were to integrate newly freed slaves into society, readmitting Southern states whom had seceded from the Union, and recreating Southern property as to better its conditions. At war’s end, the process of reconstruction sought out to solve the challenge that the disembodied Union now faced: what the status would be of postwar freedmen. While the North continued occupying Southern territories, Reconstruction shared very few successes. However, Reconstruction failed to meet its greater purpose. The process of Reconstruction was incompetent in integrating freedmen into American society because of its unstable and strained economy, its political disadvantages and its desire to redesign Southern social structure completely. Financial matters played a key role in Reconstruction’s failure, leading way to public hostility and corruption. Government industrialization plans helped rebuild the Southern economy however; the plans cost a lot of money to the government who financed such plans using tax revenue. Unable to keep up with the ever-growing investments, tax rates skyrocketed resulting in an antagonistic public opinion on Reconstruction. Conditions during this period were bad......

Hitler's My Struggle

...Hitler's Book "Mein Kampf" Although it is thought of as having been 'written' by Hitler, Mein Kampf is not a book in the usual sense. Hitler never actually sat down and pecked at a typewriter or wrote longhand, but instead dictated it to Rudolph Hess while pacing around his prison cell in 1923-24 and later at an inn at Berchtesgaden. Reading Mein Kampf is like listening to Hitler speak at length about his youth, early days in the Nazi Party, future plans for Germany, and ideas on politics and race. The original title Hitler chose was "Four and a Half Years of Struggle against Lies, Stupidity and Cowardice." His Nazi publisher knew better and shortened it to "Mein Kampf," simply My Struggle, or My Battle. In his book, Hitler divides humans into categories based on physical appearance, establishing higher and lower orders, or types of humans. At the top, according to Hitler, is the Germanic man with his fair skin, blond hair and blue eyes. Hitler refers to this type of person as an Aryan. He asserts that the Aryan is the supreme form of human, or master race. And so it follows in Hitler's thinking, if there is a supreme form of human, then there must be others less than supreme, the Untermenschen, or racially inferior. Hitler assigns this position to Jews and the Slavic peoples, notably the Czechs, Poles, and Russians. "...it [Nazi philosophy] by no means believes in an equality of races, but along with their difference it recognizes their higher or......

Market Analysis The repositionable notes market is made up of paper or tabs with adhesive, which allows the product to be stuck on surfaces and moved, without leaving residue. They are also known as ‘sticky notes’ and the idea was first conceived by 3M innovators. Post-it, the original inventor of ‘sticky notes’ have seen other competitors entering the market, yet having little success in toppling Post-it as the market leader. This is especially so in Singapore, where most of the brands shy away from competing head-on with Post-it, by differentiating their products. 1.1 Market Environment 1.1.1 Technology The ease of accessing wireless networks via Wireless@SG, since its introduction in 2006, has led to a surge in consumers switching to 3G phones. The implications of this on the repositionable notes market is that gadgets like phones are increasingly being used as a substitute in place of sticky notes, in reminding people of certain events or things. Instead of physically placing a post-it on the desk, people choose to set reminders on their phones, with alarms. People also choose to send short......

Usa in the 1940s

...During the 1940s, growing up in the United States of American became more complex. Technology provided new interest and amusements. The Great Depression and two world wars touch young people's lives. Still some things did not change. Going to school and having fun were the only thing that children had to worry about. As the economy grew, many Americans were able to buy goods that were consider luxuries. Base ball continued to be a favorite sport of the Americans and with the National league out is was a hit in the 40s. During Warner Brother's first decade, its typical motion picture—often a relatively low budget, extremely fast pacing, and a working class setting characterized a musical, a gangster film, or a film biography. Chuck Jones was an American motion-picture animator, writer, director, and producer, known for his work on many classic animated films. He was the creator of Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, and Daffy Duck. In the early 1940s DC continued to innovate and to introduce new superheroes. These included the Flash, who had superhuman speed; Green Lantern, whose magic ring of green meteorite gave him the power to shape energy; and Wonder Woman, an Amazon possessing superhuman strength and speed as well as the ability to deflect projectiles. Now with all these luxuries appliances on sale for a cheap price they were found every where in the states. Now there were refrigerators, electric toasters were only some of the appliances.

Hitler's Children

...Hitler’s Children “One of the main aspects of society that Hitler and the Nazi Party focused its efforts towards was that of the youth.”, as stated by Jake Cmarada. Hitler had a huge amount of influence on the German children in during World War II and although he mainly focused on the boys, he also had a hold on the girls too. The Nazi ruler, Hitler, was able to control all of the German children by using many methods of persuasion like propaganda and showing anti-semitism, as well as playing on the youth’s emotions. To start, propaganda was one of Hitler’s main tactics in persuading the youth of Germany. Many times, Hitler would state fake facts or tell stories that were almost entirely untrue. The definition of propaganda, according to Merriam-Webster, is “ideas or statements that are often false or exaggerated and that are spread in order to help a cause, a political leader, a government, etc.” To the male students in school, Hitler would technically change history by rewriting it to “emphasize Nazi themes of racial struggle and German pride” (The History Place). As for the women, they were separated in school, but still had propaganda in their lives because they did still go to school. In school, females were taught about the perks of motherhood and about being a Nazi because the German army needed such a huge population to keep up with what they were doing. Many posters in Germany were made during this time showing kids that were extremely happy about school to......

...The ABC’s of Failure – Getting Rid of the Noise in Your System For the past 40 years, I have observed many companies, including DuPont (where I spent 27 years) pursuing planned maintenance with the standard tools of planned maintenance: inspections, planning, scheduling, materials procurement, CMMS systems, etc. with the same results. They succeed for a while and get their percent planned and scheduled maintenance up to the 80+ only to see that drop back later to 60 I am amazed how many of the companies we work with have had this experience. This pattern of behavior has led us to conclude that the reason for this experience is that only 60% of the normal work of maintenance is inherently plannable. The rest of the work is created by random acts of what we are now calling care-lessness. The sites where we see people break this pattern and achieve 92% to 96% planned maintenance for the long term without regressing, are the ones who eliminate the inherently unplannable work. Of course, this cannot be done by maintenance alone. Everyone who does work at a site contributes to the defects that create the unplannable work, and therefore everyone must participate in eliminating the defects that create the 40% of the work that is unplannable. In the diagram below we attempt to more clearly articulate the true significance of Defect Elimination by outlining the ABC’s of failure. Fundamentally, failures happen because things that exist are not perfect. To reduce failures we must......

...During the design and implementation of a reliable distributed system is a very important. The failure of this system can result in easily repairable errors, such as hardware, software, or catastrophic meltdowns where hardware overloads, hardware crashes that were not protected. Faults can occur in any of the components of a distributed system. There are four types of failures more commonly known as compute cluster which allows applications to run on more than one computer (node). Data centric systems that involve high volumes of access are more difficult to make fault tolerant. They require failure monitoring software and a special configuration. These types of systems are high availability clusters that allow two or more computers and a set of shared disks. Any application can be installed on the shared disk which allows all other computers access, with certain restrictions designated for each user or pc. The running application's node has exclusive access to the application's data on disk. Specific applications may run very well from this type of system. The application may fail on the shared disk and the nodes exclusive access is terminated and is granted to another node in the cluster. The application is restarted on a new node, which the user will notice a slight interrupt and lose of some data. Design issues are very important in utilizing the multiplicity of processors and storage devices transparent to users. In a conventional, centralized system the user interface...

Hitler's Germany Doc Analysis

...Socialist Women’s Organization” echoes Hitler’s ideas about a nationalistic society consisting of a purely Aryan race, focusing on women’s role in abiding by these rules. The National Socialist Women’s League was established in 1931, but was not fully active until Hitler seized power in 1933. Its main purpose was to bring other women’s organizations in line with its official ideology. Nazi population policies emphasized the role of the mother in the German family, and it is understood that these documents were published to illustrate how important the German woman was to German society. National Socialism tried, with some success, to do away with the traditional separation between the private and public sphere, and the document identifies the importance in allowing the integration of the personal and private sphere. In principle, the personal and private spheres existed and functioned exclusively for the benefit of the public and the political, for the Volksgemeinschaft and the race, in the specific context of a dictatorship. The documents were released during a period when Hitler was rising to power and in the process of establishing his dictatorship. Hitler understood the force of women as an asset in a revolution, and Diehl’s documents were released at the right time to support Hitler’s views and approach to the treatment of women. Diehl’s ideology was very much in line with that of Nazism and she was thus an effective mouthpiece for Hitler’s thoughts and was able......

...smartphone that was released on April 12, 2013. This phone is known as the Facebook Phone because it is the first Android device that is pre-loaded with Facebook’s own user face layer, known as Facebook Home, which draws you directly to the center of your Facebook world from your start screen. There are a few major features that were supposed to be a big hit with this phone and the pre-installed software. One of them is having the ability to see live post from the news feed of your Facebook wall popping up every time you turn on your phone. Another is being able to use Facebook messenger while also exploring other applications within the phone. Critics believe that these features are some of the very reasons that the phone wasn’t successful, and maybe they were right. Why would you want to be bombarded by one application 24/7 when you can simply turn on your phone and access that application in seconds just like the other millions of applications that Android users have access too? From the research done, I believe the phone was a failure before it even hit the market. There was no excitement after Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, unveiled Facebook Home to the public on April 4, 2013. “The event, in fact, seemed like a non-event.  The stock ended the day slightly up, no one raved, yet no one trashed Zuckerberg or his company.” (Satell, 2013) If Facebook Home was not a big hit then how could a basic HTC device that is preloaded with Facebook Home be a big hit?......

...The 1940’s was basically ruled by World War II, which started on September 1, 1939. The War affected everything about this decade. Men were off fighting, so women had to work in the factories or wherever they could find work in order to support their families. Art and Architecture changed drastically and the radio became a vital piece to American living. Fashion became almost recyclable as new trends became more practical and theatre and film took a wild ride during this outstanding decade. Everything from sports to books were altered due to this war and the events that took place then have shaped the way that we live now. Unemployment rates in 1940 were an overwhelming 8,120,000 but that soon changed by 55% once men went off to war and women got a chance to fill those empty positions. At this time minimum wage was $.43 per hour. First, single women were chosen to work and then in 1943 with mostly all single women employed, married women were allowed to work as well. With women working, it became hard for them to balance both home life and the work world, too. Automobile production began to decline in 1942 and decreased food supplies began in 1943. To try to rehabilitate this food drought, victory gardens were reinstituted and supplied 40% of the vegetables consumed on the home front. With WWII ending in 1945 the US emerged from the war as a world superpower. With all of the men returning home, the baby boom was formed, which is still having repercussions on American......
