The Dark Side of Chocolate is a documentary about the continued allegations of trafficking of children and child labor in the international chocolate industry. Cocoa plantations in Ghana and the Ivory Coast provide 80% of the world with chocolate, according to CorpWatch. Chocolate producers around the world have been pressured to “verify that their chocolate is not the product of child labor or slavery. The filming started in Germany, where Mistrati asked vendors where their chocolate comes from. They then flew to Mali, where many of the children are from. Next, they explored the Ivory Coastwhere the cocoa plantations are located. The film ends in Switzerland where both the International Labor Organization (ILO) and the Nestle headquarters are located. Much of the footage in this documentary is recorded using a secret camera located in a bag Mistrati carries with him. The documentary was released in 2010, first in Denmark, and later in Sweden, Ireland, Belgium, and Norway.

A team of journalists investigate how human trafficking and child labor in the Ivory Coast fuels the worldwide chocolate industry. The crew interview both proponents and opponents of these alleged practices, and use hidden camera techniques to delve into the gritty world of cocoa plantations. While we enjoy the sweet taste of chocolate, the reality is strikingly different for African children. In 2001 consumers around the world were outraged to discover that child labor and slavery, trafficking, and other abuses existed on cocoa farms in the Ivory Coast, a country that produces nearly half the world's cocoa. An avalanche of negative publicity and consumer demands for answers and solutions soon followed. Two members of US Congress, Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa and Representative Eliot Engel of New York, tackled the issue by adding a rider to an agricultural bill proposing a federal system…...

...of the most recognized faces in the world and instantly brings the image of fried chicken to one’s mind. KFC and its new company jingle, “finger lcikin good” is a frequent announcement on televisions, billboards, flyers and radio. The concept of showing a normal customer deeply involved in devouring his piece of chicken usually turns on the drool factory in everybody’s mouth and makes them rush to the nearest KFC. In India where chicken lovers are plenty abound these ads featuring normal people connect instantly and create a rush at their outlets. Using the following methods KFC spreads its message of finger licking good chicken. Promotion Advertising: Advertising PowerPoint Presentation: One of KFC's latest advertisements is a commercial advertising its "wicked crunch box meal". The commercial features a fictional black metal band called "Hellvetica" performing live, the lead singer then swallows fire. The commercial then shows the lead singer at a KFC eating the "wicked crunch box meal" and saying "Oh man that is hot". In 2007, the original, non-acronymic Kentucky Fried Chicken name was resurrected and began to reappear on company marketing literature and food packaging, as well as some restaurant signage Advertising: Advertising Using Reminder advertisements KFC stimulates repeat purchases of its products.

...three parts--studying ,working and making new friends.What I get the most is from making friends.. Today, I would like to share you two /three stories about what my friends brings to me. The first story is about how my friends gave me new perspectives Last Saturday afternoon, I paid a visit to Beijing Normal University under the guidance of a friend who studies in that school. My friend showed me around in the school and introduced to me their cafeteria, office building , library and so on. One thing must mention is that she can clearly tell me some details such as all the words entitled in the slogans are written by Qi Gong, the famous Chinese painter and calligrapher. I have a better knowledge of this university. But this is not the point. I realized that it is important to have good communication skills. She also told me that she ever thought how to describe something clearly and specifically to others.In her spare time,she usually tried to describe something she was interested in).In contrast to me, I have never thought about this problem. So this is just the difference between us. Most of the time we think that our school is nothing special and showing your friend around the school is a boring thing. However, if we can make some efforts for it, I believe we will enjoy this visit. She is fond of attending various of lectures. For example,when she get exposed to the writer’s body language,behavior,words, she has a new knowledge of the writer and his books.Of......

...Decision to Pursue MBA Degree Dorothy Hall MGT/521-Management August 5, 2010 Professor John Quesnel Decision to Pursue MBA Degree Deciding to pursue a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) degree is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. The master’s program is challenging and will take time from an individual’s personal life. An MBA can further a career, begin a new career, or fulfill a personal goal. In contemplating whether to obtain an MBA degree, I had to decide what value this degree would afford me. In obtaining this degree, it would further my education and could definitely be an asset to any future career choice that I may undertake when I retire from State Farm Insurance in a couple of years. In constructing and supporting this argument on whether to pursue an MBA, as a choice, I used the Jungian Personality Self-Assessment to foster insight into possible career paths and how other individuals perceive me. The self-assessment of the Jungian personality gives an individual through 16 personality types a better understanding of him or herself. The assessment measures thinking styles of individuals, modes of dealing with information and interactions for potential managers in group settings. My personality type was the INFP result that describes individuals reserved, creative, and highly idealistic with a possible career as an architect, journalist, educational consultant, missionary, actor, artist, and poet. I agreed with......

...Taylor Vincent IBM 200 Professor Wallace November 18, 2013 Assignment 5 1) After taking this class, and looking at my personality type, I have come to the conclusion that I would like to work for a non-for profit company following college. I think that being passionate about a cause can motivate one to perform better and at a higher caliber then one would work at a desk job that they did not enjoy. These choices are right for me because I enjoy serving and helping people through my actions and service. 2) There are two places that I would like to picture my future job. One is within the big city, Los Angeles, New York.. ect.. Another choice would be over seas and in a third world country. I feel that there are many causes that need help within third world countries and my services may bring help to these places. Possibly helping kids in Africa. Also these companies have headquarters, or people working for them, in major cities across the nation. 3) I would like to work for a not-for profit company that is already started and established and work for them for a few years. Possibly after I have gained knowledge and insight into the ropes of running a not-for profit company I could start my own and help a cause that I fully support and feel needs love. 4) Companies I would enjoy working for. a. Invisible Children- Helping to reduce LRA atrocities b. Amor Ministries- Builds and supplies homes for needy in Mexico c. Project......

...The United States Supreme court ruled the Constitution’s Bill of Rights restricted only the powers of the federal and subsequently not those of the states in the case of Barron v. Baltimore in 1833. The petitioner, John Barron, was seeking a ruling against the city of Baltimore. Barron claimed the city had violated his Fifth Amendment rights. “The Fifth Amendment provides that the government may not take private property without just compensation”. Barron alleged that his wharf was too shallow for most boats to dock because of a road construction project. The city had dumped sand and other solid materials into the wharf impeding the water depth. After the first law suit, the state court found the city had deprived Barron of his rights to private property and awarded him $4,500 in damages. This compensation was to be paid by the city. Subsequently, an appellate court reversed the award, Barron appealed to the USSC, to which the case was reviewed in 1833. The opinion of the court was written by Chief Justen John Marshall. The decision upheld that the Bill of Rights delegated no power to the states and was only an application of the Federal Government. At that time, the Constitution was, seemingly, created only to apply to the Federal Government and not for individual states. Some states had drafted their own constitutions; however, Maryland had no law which mirrored the Fifth Amendment. The Supreme Court thus lacked jurisdiction (or power) to hear Barron's case and dismissed......

...them and have civil, criminal, common, and statute laws to prosecute them. There are many ways the government is modifying the laws and illegally breaking them. We, the citizens of the United States are blinded citizens. We think we follow the law, but in reality we break them almost every day. On “January 1st. 2010 was a big milestone in this scary look into the future with the introduction of 40,627 new laws that went into effect throughout the nation and its territories” ( ). Being introduced to 40,000 laws is overwhelming and not reasonable to read through. Some laws do not apply to every State, there are laws created by a State meant specifically that State. http://www.searchamelia.com/land-of-40627-laws-and-regulations-more/comment-page-1 Citizens of the United States have constitutional amendments that are the foundation of the laws . It grants protection to all who are US citizens and brings a symbol of freedom. Without the constitutional amendment created March 4, 1789, there would be no foundation of laws in today’s society. With many of the new laws negatively oppress the population of the United States. Laws vary and are separated in 4 sections that are civil, criminal, common, and statuate. The government is taking away our freedom slowly without us realizing. The United States constitution is slowly crumbling. Many amendments are being modified, like the second amendment. The second amendment grants the ability to “maintain a free......

...chose. I picked three pictures books that promote prosocial behavior. These were all written by Julia Cook. I recently attended a conference where I had the wonderful opportunity to hear her talk about her books and read a few aloud. This was a prime example that the voice you choose to use, the tone and the emotion you reflect can all have a huge impact on the engagement of a story. I picked “Soda Pop Head” because it was about a boy who had a short fuse which many children can relate to. I also chose “It’s Hard to be a Verb”. This book was about a boy who was hyperactive. We have more and more children in school now at an early age being diagnosed with ADHD who would be able to relate to this story. The last book I picked was “But It’s Just a Game”. This book is about a little boy who is obsessed with video games. This is another thing that many children today can relate to. It talks about ways to switch you game controller for a “life controller”. I chose three picture books lending themselves to interpretation through music or movement. I found this to be the most difficult part of this assignment. I picked “The Snowman” by Raymond Briggs. In this book a boy builds a snowman. He invites the snowman to come inside and they explore the house. The snowman then takes the boy on a journey through the countryside and into the city. A movement activity I would use would be to actually build a snowman. If snow wasn’t available we would imagine that we are building a snowman and......

...time I was thirty, and I am nowhere near close. Some may find that goal as selfish, but my goal in life has always been to make as much money as possible to help as many people as possible. I have always been comfortable living in an apartment, but I have always said that I wanted to put my mother and my grandmother in a nice house. My grandmother has always wanted a nice kitchen and my mom does some unorthodox things to get money. My goal in life is be exactly the opposite of where I came from but ultimately never forget where I came from. It is astonishing to me how my professor does so much work in a community in which he did not grow up in. So my goal in life is not just make a six figures before I’m thirty but to ultimately go back in the community in where I come from. I don’t want to go back just to help, but to go back and show them that anything is possible. One of the main conflicts of interest for me is that I have always witnessed people come into the community who don’t look like the community. There is nothing wrong with that, however my ultimate goal in the next five years to help my family and my extended community family. This final class has taught me so much, it taught me about faith, community, and loving thy neighbor as thyself....

...figure out a way to promote confidence to the sender. People can achieve this goal by using demonstrative communication. Maintaining eye contact with both the sender and slides informs the sender that her or she has the attention of the audience and will believe that his or her message is important. Nodding in agreement with the sender and sitting in an attentive style throughout the presentation also informs the speaker that his or her information is important and will only add to the quality of the presentation. Through this example, proper demonstrative communication benefits both the sender and receiver. The sender will feel empowered because their message was well-received and respected. The receivers or the audience will walk away with new information about a certain topic and will believe that their time invested into the presentation was time well spent. There is a flip side to demonstrative communication and the same presentation mentioned earlier is a good example to use. Similarly, a conversation between two people using poor demonstrative communication is another example of how improper demonstrative communication can affect both the sender and receiver of a message negatively. If a sender is in the middle of their presentation and fails to make eye contact with the audience, the audience will not be able to make eye contact, either. This leads to the audience gazing around the room, remaining inattentive, which is clearly visible to the sender. If the......

...mentioned earlier has led to a paradigm shift. NEW PARADIGM The organizational behaviour has a goal lo help the managers make a transition to the new paradigm. Some of the new paradigm characteristics include coverage of second-generation information technology and total quality management such as empowerment, reengineering and benchmarking, and learning organization for managing diversity of work. The new paradigm sets the stage for the study, understanding, and application of the time-tested micro-variables, dynamics and macro-variables. One must know why management needs a new perspective to meet the environmental challenges and to shift to a new paradigm. A NEW PERSPECTIVE FOR MANAGEMENT Management is generally considered to have three major dimensions—technical, conceptual and human. The technical dimension consists of the manager's expertise in particular functional areas. They know the requirements of the jobs and have the functional knowledge to get the job done. But the practicing managers ignore the conceptual and human dimensions of their jobs. Most managers think that their employees are lazy, and are interested only in money, and that if you could make them happy in terms of money, they would be productive. If such assumptions are accepted, the human problems that the management is facing are relatively easy to solve. But human behaviour at work is much more complicated and diverse. The new perspective assumes that employees are extremely......

...superior to the other, and this has led to the plight of African-Americans and Jews in the past to Muslims and Arab-Americans now in the present. Indeed, on the morning of September 11, 2001, in the deadliest case of domestic terrorism in the history of the United States, a group of 19 terrorists hijacked four U.S. airliners for use as missiles against targets in New York City and Washington, D.C. In part, the events shocked the entire country and the world and focused the U.S. government on a worldwide war on terrorism. Consequently though, as these attacks were linked to members of the Muslim faith this war on terrorism became domestic as much as it was international, as the outrage of these attacks created a sense of hysteria that turned Arab-Americans into enemies of the state. After Al Qaeda’s attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, hate crimes directed at Muslims and Arabs “shot up by more than 1,600 percent” (Intelligence Report, Winter 2011). No matter whether they were American born citizens or not, the society now became indiscriminately suspicious of everyone who was of the Muslim faith. In an article titled “Confronting the New Faces of Hate: Hate Crimes in America 2009” on a Lake Tahoe beach in July 2007, “Vishal Wadhwa, 38, suffered fractures of several facial bones and an orbital fracture in one eye after being kicked and beaten by Joseph and Georgia Silva.
