Venue Recognition - 774 words
Chapter 4 Recognition in financial statements Having defined the elements of financial statements in Chapter 3, the Statement of Principles turns next to their recognition. Whilst only items that meet those definitions should be recognised, not every item that does so should necessarily be recognised. Recognition is very important. Creative accounting often means recognising as an asset something which is not an asset. Recognition involves depiction of the element both in words and by a monetary amount, and the inclusion of that amount in the statement totals. Notes to the financial statements contain important information both about elements that are recognised and about those that are not ...

Stated differently, businesses must design the processes customers will use to conduct E-commerce transactions from a customer prospective. In other words, your business processes must support the customers needs, not merely your business needs. Many of the technologies noted above can provide customers with the ability to initiate and complete transactions on their own. They should be allowed to do so. When customers can complete most transactions using technology, midd ...

Margaret Atwoods Significance In Writing The Handmaids Tale - 1,097 words
In 1969 Margaret Atwood first addressed the world with her pro-feminist ideas. As a direct result from encouragement and influence from literary mentors like Atwood, feminism became the rage. As the interest in women's rights heightened, so did the tolerance and need for more strongly biased and feminist sided articles of literature. In 1985, Margaret Atwood completed The Handmaid's Tale, and fueled the fight for equal rights, no glass ceilings, and occupational opportunities for women all over the world. Margaret Atwood was born in Ottawa, Canada in 1939, and grew up in suburban Toronto where she was raised by her father who was a forest entomologist. Atwood began writing in high school whe ...

This was an imperfection of the church as an institution, which is something Stevie came to recognize as no longer part of God, but as part of man who had tainted his message of love and acceptance. Sanford Sternlicht, professor at Syracuse University and author of Stevie Smith, noted, She was progressively disillusioned by Christianity. She saw dishonesty in the churches, and disagreed with the conventional construct of God as demeaning, vain, jealous, revengeful, (or) eager to sacrifice the innocent (Sternlicht 106). This s ...

Gengis Kahn - 424 words
Born Temujin in 1167 A.D., Genghis Khan and his mother and siblings were abandoned by their tribe after his father was poisoned. The family experienced years of hardship, and was told by his mother to ``remember, you have no companions but your shadow''. The boy showed early promise as a leader and fighter. By 1206, Temujin's military initiatives had defeated all competing tribes, and his power was such that he was proclaimed Genghis Khan, the `universal or oceanic ruler Genghis Khan pledged to share with his followers both the sweet and the bitter of life. In structuring his army, he integrated soldiers from different tribes inspiring loyalty to the Mongol army as a whole rather than to a s ...

Common people, who were forced to face injustices and were railroaded by the system because at that time, no one before them sought to challenge the laws or there was no need to change them, has fought them for. Even though, these laws were changed and new ones were put in their place back in the early part of this century, when they were still new, there was still a problem. Some of these laws and rights were somehow looked over when the subject of race came up ...

... ich is often also referred to as an "international bond". These bonds do not necessarily have to have any 'special' features, as one is automatically built in. As with regular bonds, the holder will receive interest payments throughout the year and the face value when the maturity date is reached. However, when purchasing an international bond, what you are actually doing is investing in another country's currency. Consequently, you must take both the bond price and the currency rate into account. This additional 'investment within an investment' can greatly increase your profit; however, there is also the risk that the country's currency might decline in worth, which in some instances c ...

1960s - 4,021 words
The 1960s were a time of major political and social change. These changes were primarily fuelled by the youth of the time. Their parents had come from life in both the great depression of the 1930s as well as World War II, and were on a whole more conservative than their children, a fact the younger generation did not like. In the early 60s the electronic media (Television and radio) became an important communication tool, as opposed to the largely print based media of previous decades. With change came a profound increase in the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and information, which in turn influenced a generation to become much more active in politics and other affairs which affected them, t ...

Mozart - 4,097 words
"For the respect his works have commanded of musicians, and the popularity they have enjoyed among wider audiences, he is probably the most admired composer in the history of Western music." With this appraisal the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, published in 1980, begins its magisterial article on Beethoven. More than a decade later one might not apply this statement to the Teutonic Goliath but to the David of Mozart. Not only is this year (1991) the bicentennial of Mozart's death, it also comes at a time when his pristine classical image has become the preferred taste over Beethoven's more extroverted expression.

She has no wit, but she has enough common sense to enable her to fulfil her duties as a wife and mother. It is a downright lie that she is inclined to be extravagant.
