Documentary Review - 618 words
The documentary I watched is about Thaipusam festival. I watched it on National Geographic Channel and was amazed to discover the meaning, the process and the traditions and practices of Thaipusam. It was interesting to watch the procession yet at the same time learn more about it in detail. Every January/February, depending upon the lunar month - on a full-moon day in the Tamil month of Thai, the Hindus will celebrate Thaipusam in honour of their Hindu God, Lord Subramaniam (sometimes referred to as Lord Murugan) who is a son of the Hindu God Shiva. He is believed to represent virtue, youth and power. As mentioned in the documentary, Thaipusam is celebrated in Singapore and also in Malaysia ...

As the world prepares to move into the twenty-first century, many nations are rapidly developing their agricultural and manufacturing sectors.

Sorry, It's My Entire Fault. - 566 words
I wish I had not done it. If I had been more sensible, the accident would not have happened; but it's no use saying that now. One day at school last term, we didn't have very much to do. The teachers had all gone to a staff meeting, and most of us in Form 4A were chatting, joking and reading magazines. Vincent, who had to prepare for an overseas examination, was the only one who was working. He had a large Physics book in front of him and was making careful notes in an exercise book. He looked so serious that I suddenly had a marvelous idea for a joke. I crept up behind him and quickly snatched his glasses from his face. The others in the class roared with laughter, as I took him completely ...

Melbourne, Australia - 634 words
Melbourne, one of the most beautiful city's in the world. I have traveled through the USA, Canada & the Bahamas, and still, I find Melbourne is the greatest. In 1981 I was born in a New South Wales mid-coast town of Port Macquarie. I lived there until I was the age of four, and that's when we made the move to Victoria. I grew up in Kew, a suburb of Melbourne, not far from the actual city. Most of my family lived there, and was the main cause for the move. I went to school and met lots of friends. Nearly every night my friends and I would get together and go to the local car park and roller-blade for a few hours before going to 7-11 for a Slurpee. I look back at those days, and see how Melbou ...

9-11 Could Have Been Avoided If The Secret Services Would Have Done Their Work - 3,379 words
Preceding the terrible events on September 11th, 2001, the American Secret Services have made many mistakes in regard to the possibility of preventing 9-11. The Secret Services, mainly the CIA and the FBI, have made a great lot of mistakes. After an initial meeting in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where eight terrorists met, the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) let go of them after their meeting, assuming it was unimportant . After the attack on the USS Cole in 2000 they changed their minds, now coming to the conclusion that major agreements regarding the Cole as well as regarding the WTC (World Trade Center) were made in Malaysia. However, it was too late. As the year 2001 approached and warning ...

Although their names were listed in a watchlist of potential terrorists, which contained names of people for which the entry to the US is forbidden because of their terrorist connections, al-Hazmi and al-Midhar were not stopped at their entry into the US neither were they arrested later. Although the CIA knew that with al-Midhar at least one of the two al-Qaeda terrorists could enter and leave US as he wanted to, they did not pass this information onto other authorities for nearly 1 years. They continued the su ...

... her in 2002. This stands in stark contrast to the growth that occurred in both 1999 and 2000 (ibid). One could say that rivalry among competing sellers is very high and is getting higher, and therefore makes the industry less attractive. To sum up Porters five-forces-model, I think that the telecommunication equipment industry in Malaysia is not that attractive at the moment. This depends foremost on the fact that there are few customers and there is a declining growth in the industry worldwide, which tightens the competition. On the other hand, the industry has high entry barriers and there is not any real potential threat from substitutes. 4 Competitive intelligence system For our comp ...

Business Communications - 1,343 words
1. Describe the Barriers to Effective Communication that exists in the situation. Communication exists when two parties enact in any behavior, non-verbal or graphic, that is perceived by another argues Dwyer (1999). It does not necessarily mean the presence of dialogue, or even acknowledging body language. Communication can occur when as Dwyer (1999) referenced from Watzalawick, et al. (1967) thought that people cannot not communicate. Even when a person ignores another person, something is being communicated. This is one of the barriers to communication in the case study, where Mary Ong is not getting the response or help she requested from Tom Ballard. Mary Ong, Supervisor of in-flight ser ...
