REACTION PAPER #1

Management, when studied and applied has a broad spectrum. Not only do we have to consider the profit of an organization, but we also have to consider whether an organization and their production of goods lead to meeting the needs of the common good efficiently and effectively. Based on Peter Drucker’s Agency theory, “Management is the organ of institutions; one which converts a mob into an organization, and human efforts into performance.” This basically speaks of the skills and competencies of the workers and their effectiveness and efficiency to give an output that meets the desired and quality accepted outcome.
During our first meeting, we were asked which one between effectiveness and efficiency will we prioritize provided that circumstances come. Sure, both are significant in accomplishing a goal but in the event that we have to prioritize one, which one will be it? I remember answering efficiency because based on my experience as a nurse; we cannot achieve effectiveness without being efficient with a certain task. We were taught about being efficient in every nursing skill that we do because we are dealing with the lives of the people. In contrast to my nursing background, I further understood that in business, sometimes the priority is effectiveness because in an organization, meeting a deadline is sometimes synonymous to the credibility of the team.
On the one hand, in defining skills, it is the application of knowledge to be able to do a job suitable for the goals and concepts one (specifically a manager) has created. To understand the three types of management skills that we’ve learned during the class discussion, which are technical skills, human skills and conceptual…...

...REACTION PAPER “Tsunami” Horrifying! Shocking! Great! Alarming! These are the things I can say about the movie. I had watched so many documentary movies about this matter. At first, I thought this film will be kind boring. But I was proved amiss. As I keep looking on the scenes I get started to like it. Its drama really melts my heart. The adventure is very intense. It’s like watching a horror movie but in fact it is not. You get shouted, shocked, and amazed in every big scene, like when a big cargo ship stuck on the bridge and the man is trying to evade the falling cargo containers from that. Luckily he survived to that enormous challenge. The movie ends with the scene of Hyundai in ruins, but in an atmosphere of hope. Sometimes we need to follow our instincts. We must take a perfect action in making decisions in life. Like of what had happened to the City of Hyundai, many people killed, streets, bridges and buildings were vanished away by the tsunami in just seconds. We must also take salute to those people who are willing to offer their life for the sake of others. I desire that this movie will inform our government. They should construct strong policies concerning about our environment. May they shall take active actions in accomplishing better devices that will greatly help us in warning millions of people if ever there would be some instances that this kind of tragedy will happen to our loving country. Because nobody know when the nature will take revenge......

...Reaction Paper We people must take care of what we have, especially our only home, the planet which had the ability to grow and is capable of giving everything in existence, the one and only Earth. Earth’s nature is the most precious gift that God has given us, so in return, we must take good care of it and not ignoring its climate crisis. Based on the movie, it the facts of the differences of Earth’s topography and nature nowadays compared to the times long ago. The differences of the facts were caused by this intriguing global warming that alarmed all the people in the world. This global warming is the result of the gradual increase of greenhouse gases in the ozone layer, thus trapping the sun’s heat in the earth’s atmosphere. These greenhouse gases result from human activities like fossil fuel burning, and deforestation. By this, we cans see results like the melting of glaciers, permafrost, extreme weather events, species extinctions, changes in nature, and etc. Upon seeing this, it turned out to be a wake-up call for me. It made me cautious about this topic, making me anxious for instant help to our Earth. I hope people will also feel what I feel for this problem. For this is the problem that is the hardest for us because it signifies all existing living things are in danger. It’s good to know what is stated on the movie, that many governments and countries supported the Kyoto Protocol’s aim at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It is such a relief for me......

...Reaction paper The section 4 making external forces that affect organization is the topic we discuss some of the forces impacting your small business are more challenging to master than others. The degree to which you can control them varies. At the same time, you can improve the state of external factors effecting your small business; you can't make the economy grow, but you can encourage spending. Understanding the factors at work better equips you to prepare for them. A method to align supply chain with business strategy. Your employees are happier when they are courteous and respectful of one another. They want their achievements to be recognized. When you provide sufficient instructions to your subordinates, you enable them to do their jobs effectively. When you help employees identify with your company's mission and goals, you are likelier to keep them long-term. The economy is an external factor that effects the success of your business. The ability of your clients to pay directly impacts your bottom line, regardless of whether you sell a product or service. You can offer sales and promotions, and you can tout the value of your company's offerings, but during rough financial times your clients might prefer to allocate their resources elsewhere. Economics might be specific to your clients' industries, and it might be a global issue impacting supply and demand. If you make a toy and business at toy stores across the country declines, your sales will suffer. Diversifying...

...Home Reaction Paper of the movie entitled Home The film home by Yann Arthus-Bertrand is a beautifully shot panorama of the Earth and the damage done to it by modern humanity. It includes a moving narration about the evolution of the Earth, nature, agriculture, humans, and the crises of habitat destruction, energy depletion, climate disruption, degradation...of the environment, health, economic disparity, and more.  The movie starts by taking the viewer back to the beginning of time, and explains how and when life on Earth came about. We learn, for example, that the world is four billion years old, whereas humans are only 200,000 years old. In the relatively short time we have been around, however, we have had more impact than any other species. In the last 50 years alone, the movie says, the Earth has been more radically changed than by all previous generations of humanity. The movie narrates how our mother earth evolved, how the beautiful trenches were molded, the placid and bluish color of the sea, the formation of rocks, mountains, and other magnificent sceneries were being shown and narrated. The film also shows the ecological cycle of life. The biological evolution of plants where many kinds of plants were growing and cultivating around the world and the evolution of human and animal lives that we never thought would be the one who will destroy the beautiful picturesque of our mother earth.   From time to time, in the film, the narrator demonstrates and explains......

...Reaction Paper The animation film “Frozen” has been the talk of the town since the Christmas season of 2013. And up ‘til now, it is still gaining a wider audience captivating the hearts of many, transcending from generations to generations. I’ve only come to watch Frozen around 2 weeks ago and I thought to myself, “Wow, ako nalang ata ang nilalang na hindi pa nakakapanood nito hahaha” but it’s never too late! I’ve watched it with my sisters and I can’t help but notice how it was made. I kept analyzing the background, the character design, and the movement itself. Let me elucidate my thoughts and insights on this 3D animated film. First, I guess we can’t take the critique out of us MMA individuals for we are already inculcated with theories and have applied our knowledge and skills into concrete work that repetition, it is already natural for us to notice things in animated films people wouldn’t normally notice. I love the character design of Elsa and Anna, two contrasting designs yet with striking similarity all the while making them both stand out in their own respective characters. There was also a great transition in the character growth of the two; I also adored the colours used for each character that evidently manifested all throughout the film. My favourite 3D mind bogglers are the amazing frozen icicles, soft cloud like snow, and the beautiful map design of Arendelle. I must say that the animators of Frozen are superb! The overall theme is perfectly......

...REACTION PAPER THE MEN WHO CRASHED THE WORLD I. SUMMARY THE FINANCIAL AND stock market meltdown of September-October 2008 is unlike anything that the vast majority of us have seen in our lifetimes.  Americans would have to be old enough to remember 1929 and the onset of the Great Depression to have seen a crisis of this magnitude. People in Japan, it’s true, know all about the “lost decade” after the late 1980s bank crashes – but the late situation is a disaster on a global scale. Great Depression is actually, the outcome of this crisis and is unpredictable. Among other differences, the 1929 stock market crash and subsequent credit crisis led to the Great Depression of the 1930s in part because governments responded with “tight money” policies until too late, an act of suicide which central banks and governments today definitely will not repeat. Quite the contrary, extremely energetic state interventions in Europe and the USA – very much against the recent ideological free-market “run of play” – have halted the fears of a total global banking collapse and the short-term stock market panic. It’s indeed instructive how quickly the entire ideology of “unleashing the free market” and financial deregulation could be thrown aside in order to rescue giant banks that are “too big to fail.” The U.S. Treasury will not only be purchasing (at above-market rates) the “toxic assets” held by these institutions, but pumping hundreds of billions more into them by buying “preferred......

...Reaction Intro to Corrections Before I watch the films in class I thought I had a pretty good insight on how prison worked and how corrections were used in the prison system. As I watched the films it gave me the visual part of the learning experience. It gave me the inside view of the system and how it works, but not only that it also showed me more on drugs in prions, fights, gangs, and the struggle to keep control of the prison. Not only had that it gone along with the book and everything we are learning in class. Now the film showed a lot of gang violence in prions. I saw how classification works better. In book it talks about how they can look at some tattoos and can tell if they are in a gang or not, now the officers in the films would use tattoos and markings to mark them violent activities. But certain tattoos will put a guy in a certain gang. This would help them classify them. This helped them be aware of certain gangs and different ways to handle them, and who to watch for and who to be more cautious with. The officers would find out new inmates and there gang history just by their tattoos. The max security prison system works a little differently with the gang situation. In the max security prison it is more about color of skin that whites stick with whites, blacks with blacks and etc. Overcrowding is no joke in prison. Now in class we learned about this and how prisons had to put multiple inmates in one room. In the video in showed exactly that!......

...REACTION PAPER The Century of Self” is a very controversial documentary, made in 2002 by Adam Curtis, one of the best British cinematographer and producer that ever existed! The maine idea of the documentary is based on the work of Sigmund Freud, Anna Freud and Edward Bernays and how it was used by the government and big companies to manipulate the population. The film is segmented in four main episodes that were not released at the same time, but at interspaces of 7 days sharp. Each of the chapters has its own point explaining how mass manipulation was used and how it negatively encouraged consumerism. 1st Episode: “Happiness Machines”  The first episode was released in March 17, 2012 and it talks about crowd behaviour and how easy it can be influenced. Edward Bernays was actually the first man to use Freud’s theories for mass-manipulation.  Edward Bernays is known as being the “father of public relations” and the “pioneer of propaganda”. Mixing the theories from Gustav Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter on crowd psychology with theories from his uncle, Freud, on psychoanalisys, he managed to become one of 100 most influential American in the world, according to Life Magazine. Motivated by the thought that masses are influenceable and dominated by the “herd instinct”, he concluded that in order for a society to be “sane”, manipulation is necessary. One of the most interesting observations made by Bernays was when watching the crowd surging for president Woodrow Wilson and......

...Reaction Paper The documentary “China’s Water Challenges” is about the problems on water that China facing now. The problems they had is that they had more water, less water, dirty water and mud water. The main location of this problem is on the Yellow river. When it rains, the flow on the yellow river is turbulent that causes severe floods on the cities beside the river. When it is now raining, the river has less water and more sediments caused by the erosion of the soil. Drought was also a problem of China because some provinces do not rain often. Wastewater management causes problem to the community as it produces foul smell and contaminate the potable water of the city. China’s government, for me, has done a great job to solve these problems especially on the Yellow river. They relocate the people living on the side of the river to higher places to prevent damages from floods cause by the river. They also formed a committee that will monitor the condition of the whole river. They encourage people to build terraces and plant trees beside the river to prevent soil erosion. Their government is concerned to the well-being of the community. They really did what they are meant to do. The way they deal with the problem is something that we should learn from. We should take the China’s government as an example to take on our problem in water sources here in our country. We should work together to prevent and completely solve our problems here....

...HEB possess many corporate social responsibilities (CSR) and I believe that the way HEB executes their responsibilities can benefit and improve the Houston Food Bank (HFB). “The meaning of the CSR is to recognize that business firms have not one but many different kinds of responsibilities, including economic and legal responsibilities. Corporations have an economic responsibility to produce goods and services also to provide jobs and good wages to the work force while earning a profit (The Business Cornerstone). “The concept of corporate social responsibility is often expressed as the voluntary assumption of responsibilities that go beyond the purely economic and legal responsibilities of the firm (Scilly).” First, I will discuss the economic values of HEB. The economic part focuses on whether not the company can earn a profit before being a good corporate citizen. HEB focuses on producing the freshest produce and putting their customers first by listening to their customers and helping fulfill their any and every need within their capability. They also focus on maintaining low prices in a competitive market. “Two notable factors spring out: the first is being privately held, the second is its unique position as the only retailer of its scale and size to operate exclusively in one state and across the border in Mexico. Its familial tie to its Texan communities bolsters its sustainability goals and provides a competitive edge (Slott).” HEB thrives on diversity, supports......

...Reaction Paper #2 Gary Stansberry This reaction paper is on the eyewitness account from inside the WTC towers on 9/11. It is an article that gives the stories of three unfortunate people who have been scarred for life on account of the events. They both witnessed the terrorist attacks first hand. The first story is from a man named Jonathan Weinberg, who was working in the building on the day of the attacks. He recounts that he had stayed in his office instead of going into a specific conference room that day, and that saved his life. I could not imagine being a part of that. He described the feeling he felt at that moment as shock. I would have been more than shocked, I would have been terrified beyond belief. The next person was Ashton Lee, and she tells her story from the outside of the building. She says that she was outside, and when the tower was struck she started running for her life, because she thought that the building would crush her if she didn’t get out of the way. I could not imagine the fear of being crushed by a building, on top of everyone screaming. I probably would have run until I collapsed. She said she almost fainted at the thought of death, which I would have to agree with her on that. If I had such a close encounter with death I don’t know if I could handle it. Her account was right next to the towers though, there is another story where a man was a distance away from the tragedy. He states that he saw people jumping from the building. I do not......

...CSR REPORT I-Chiao Lin Intro to Marketing Strategy 09/14/14    The writers of the book The Responsible Company, Yvon Chouinard and Vincent Stanley, state in the start of their book that there is no single company that is responsible, but they all just choose to take different procedures towards being responsible to all of their stakeholders. The book guides employees and businesses to ensure they learn their social and environmental shortcomings and act on them in order to be more responsible. One question one asks themselves when reading this book is: What is the responsibility of the companies? Normally companies will invest highly on maximizing their stakeholders. They will direct all their attention on their direct stakeholders and unfortunately focus less on their indirect stakeholders who matter as much too. We are given a perfect example in the book of Patagonia. It poses a challenge to the companies to take ultimate accountability for their deeds in relations to each and every one of their stakeholders. Among the customers’ checklist, one of them is being progressively open about the social and environmental impact of what you make. The company should be transparent to ensure customer satisfaction and business success. They have to ensure its consumers trust them, and they will earn this only through transparency. One other item on the customers’ checklist is to make things that help the commons. The company should ensure......
