*Please describe why you have chosen to apply to UBS

As a postgraduate student from LSE, I have given serious thoughts to a graduate program where I will be consistently challenged and a workplace where I can best utilize my skills to create a positive difference. The UBS GTP will not just give me crucial work related experience but also equip me with the necessary skills to advance myself in other areas of the industry through cross business learning. The dynamic and high pressure environment at UBS, which stems from its bold and aggressive banking style, will elevate my intellectual curiosity and bring the absolute best out of my abilities. One of the most important factors to me in choosing a working environment is the level of mutual support and inclusivity which is embedded in UBS’ culture through its strong mentorship initiative intended to aid graduates’ development. This initiative is further reinforced by the team oriented and respectful spirit of UBS to create a harmonious yet competitive environment. I am also particularly drawn to UBS’ dedication to nurturing and investing into the distinctly diverse talents of its people. This means that UBS not only demands but gives the best to its people, ensuring that mutual success is achieved through the cultivation and retention of high caliber individuals. Finally, UBS is the epitome of working in a meritocracy. Its performance measurement and management process guarantees that honest and quality hard work are measured and rewarded fairly which is essential for an ambitious graduate like myself.

...Asceticism has been revolutionizing since the fifteenth century and will continue to throughout the present day in the social order. The human mind is faced with demanding means of transformation sustained in our culture through material and ideological conditions. Jeremy Rifkin and Karl Polanyi focus their work on production and exchange in terms of social relations also known as material conditions. Theodore Roszak and Reinhard Bendix direct their literature on the values and actions which individuals adhere otherwise known as ideological conditions. Ideological and material conditions coincide in respect to one another. Human values and worth differentiate when challenged by unpredictable social surroundings. Each journalist captures on central idea that shapes our perception and understanding of the world. The concept of work is seldom understood. From the establishment of the primitive societies work has always been in existence. Jeremy Rifkin states in his exposition “The End of Work”, that “for the first time, human labour is being systematically eliminated from the production process” (Rifkin 214). The introduction of machinery is pushing the global economy to a new generation of information and communication technologies leading us to the Third Industrial Revolution. “35 million people are currently unemployed and an additional 15 million have given up looking for work or unwillingly accepted a part time job” (Rifkin 220).

...medical professionals. The team involve in this case are mostly specialist in their own field. This setting is a direct approach to treatment. Advantage of Team Based Health Care Delivery This new health new health care delivery that will be implemented soon will be an effective system in the health care history. As in the old practice where patient care comes exclusively from the physician, in team based practice everyone is trained to deliver patient care ("Jefrey Bendix," 2013, p. 2). This system will train other personnel in different field of expertise allowing personnel to learn new things that will help them advance in their career. Team based approach will allow them personnel to cross train in other area of expertise. . This will give opportunity to learn since the objective is to educate the proper personnel. This approach could help the nations’ unemployment rate. It is a hands on training from within. Personnel also started to feel sense of .ownership and responsibility on the patients’ well being (Bendix, 2013, p. 3). Another advantage that I would like to discuss is financial aspect of the system. Insurance would pay less on this approach compared to the traditional approach there is less specialist to pay. In my opinion, team based health care delivery would have advantages and disadvantages. This system can only be used chronic care management perfectly than acute care that would require specialist. CCM requires long term care to patients and this is......

After completing his tour of duty, Crosby entered Ohio college of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland to follow in his fathers footsteps. Crosby practice podiatry with his father right after graduation back in Wheeling. Fortunately for us, podiatry was not his calling and soon after he left that field and joined the Crosley Corporation in 1952 as a junior electric test technician. In 1955, he went to work for the Bendix Corporation as a reliability technician. While working at Bendix as a quality engineer, Crosby was task with investigating defects found by various testers and inspectors for the Talos missile, which was being develop and tested by Bendix and the Navy. As the days lingered on, Crosby investigative reports evidence a change is needed. In order for these changes to take effect, Crosby would have to become an executive. Unfortunately, Bendix was not willing to make the jump of faith. In 1957, Crosby joined the ranks of Martin Marietta as a senior quality engineer. “During his eight years with Martin Marietta Mr. Crosby developed his “Zero Defects” concepts, began writing articles for various journals, and started his speaking career’ (Crosby). In the 60’s Crosby left Martin Marietta to work for ITT (International Telephone and Telegraph), as the vice president in charge of quality.

Inauthentic Authenticity in Nationalism

...studied folk music and tried to interpret/present music works in a way that projects their own national values. In particular, they strived to claim “authenticity” or “purity” in their national music, and by claiming “authentic” or “pure” they legitimate their claims to better serve national interest. However, I shall argue here, what really matters in these claims is how people frame their words and represent their works as national. Specifically, in this paper I will focus on how German nationalism is perceived by comparing and contrasting two short excerpts, one from Richard Wagner, the other from Eduard Hanslick. I will proceed by relating some analysis based on more recent folklorists and musicologists, such as Philip Bohlman, Regina Bendix, Richard Taruskin, and Sanna Pederson, to further conceptualize the idea of nationalism inherent in German values or vice versa. In 1821 Weber’s opera Der Freischutz achieved great success both at home and abroad. It was deemed as the first model of German national opera because of its focus on folks. However, as argued by Taruskin, the opera’s national significance was in part due to its premiere as inaugural musical offering at the newly rebuilt Nationaltheater in Berlin. Thus, it was “the role of reception, alongside or even before the composer's intentions, as a determinant of nationalist significance. It was the nation, not the composer, who made Der Freischutz a national opera” (8). The reception at Nationaltheater presupposed......

Unfair Dismissal Advice

...grounds for an appeal through external systems (Bendix, Sonia, 2010). Most dismissal appeal cases aim to result in reinstatement, but seeing as you have interests in receiving compensation, and having the injustices of your dismissal corrected, below I shall outline steps you can take to achieve this through the CCMA or Labour Court. The two options I explains have differing weightings on their likelihood to produce justice (ie. Probable ruling in your favour) and their degree of compensation. I shall end off by advising you based on these weightings. To start the appeal process for any of the options I will suggest, you will need to send a written referral to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), seeing as financial institutions do not have a bargaining council of their own (Bendix, Sonia, 2010. This should be done within the 30 days from the date you were informed or given notice of dismissal, which in your case is probably when you received the outcome of your disciplinary hearing. You can find the prescribed form for referrals through this link, which once completed, should be copied for delivery to your employer. It’s important that you prove that a copy was sent (eg. proof of a fax copy transmission slip, a postal receipt, courier slip or a signed hand delivery) and that you start the process soon, seeing as the CCMA will only condone late referrals if you can provide an acceptable reason (Bendix, Sonia, 2010). Once the referral is......

Most chemical reaction out-gassing is from sunlight, air movement, and variations in temperature. For example, direct sunlight on a product will cause it to out-gas from a chemical reaction between the heat intensity of the uv rays in sunlight and the chemically reacting product.

Great Transformation

...society. The economy shifted from being a community base to an industrial base economy. This shift caused a change in society where the focus was on maintaining the social status to individual gain and profit. Social status lost its dominance and place within the community, this lead to conditions that were perfect for the rise of capitalism. Religious movements i.e. Roman Catholic Church introduced a belief system where individuals had to devote his/her life as an ascetic Protestantism; infused with hard work and moral obligations in order to ensure a ‘spot in heaven’. “Anything that is worth doing at all is worth doing well” (Bendix, 206) is one of Bendix’s famous quotes that represented the modern spirit of capitalism. The Roman Catholic Church enforced the belief ‘there is nothing you can do to change your destiny except for hard work’. Like Bendix, the Roman Catholic Church created a perfect work force for capitalism. In other words, hard work became a value and a duty. During preindustrial setting the work was task orientated, whereas now it is based on the clock. Task orientated work was done at a leisurely pace and was incompatible with the spirit of capitalism. Material and ideological both resulted in massive changes in the work place; industrial capitalism caused an increase in mechanization and productions of factories. Management caused divisions between the people on the floor and in the office. Scientific management i.e. Fordism, reduce the......

Market Society

...market society according to Weber that the people either have pursued gain in a speculative matter or based on rational calculation but modern capitalism is based more on rational economic pursuit rather than the speculative types (Bendix, p. 53). The concept of Weber’s “spirit of capitalism” is based on the “idea of hard work as a duty that carries its own intrinsic reward” (Bendix, p. 51). Weber believed that man should work not because he is forced to work but because he wanted to and that hard work is a sign of virtue and moral obligation (Bendix, p. 51-52), this concept ties in well with the Protestant Ethic that will be discussed later in this paper. Weber also contrasts his own concept of “spirit of capitalism” to another type of economic activity that he called “traditionalism”. Traditionalism is more of a pre-capitalist characteristic rather than capitalist as economic traditionalism prefers more of a “leisurely work habits and a ‘live-and-let-live’ moderation of the economic calculus” (Bendix, p. 52). In traditionalism as man adapts leisurely work habits, where they prefer “less work to more pay when during working hours they seek a maximum of comfort . . . when they are unable or unwilling to adapt themselves to new methods of work” (Bendix, p. 52), basically man are satisfied with their earnings that give them a comfortable lifestyle and even though Weber contrasted this with his “spirit of capitalism”, the concept itself is actually compatible to one another as......

Market Society

...of capitalism see hard work as a virtue and they feel that it is their obligation to work hard and they derive personal satisfaction from working hard and accumulating personal wealth (Bendix 51). The relationship between the “protestant work ethic” and the “spirit of capitalism” is that the latter, as a part of the development of rationalism, originated from the former (Bendix 51). Additionally, the “protestant work ethic” provides the “spirit of capitalism” with powerful ethical support, enabling the “spirit of capitalism” and economic activities win social legitimacy (Bendix 55). The idea of the “protestant work ethic” is that working hard is “...the way of life ordained by God in which every man must prove himself” (Bendix 62). The similarities between the “protestant work ethic ” and the “spirit of capitalism” are that they both encourage people to work hard, control their own enjoyment, and expand their investment to multiply their possessions. The difference between them is that the “protestant work ethic” sees unceasing work as a way to gain God’s favor while for the “spirit of capitalism”, hard work is an act that makes the most sense; working hard enables people to create more wealth to make their lives Chen 6 better (Bendix 62). When the "protestant work ethic" shifts to the "spirit of capitalism", it changes from religious to "rational". With the development of capitalist economy, the full-brown......

Market Society

...not always the case. The world we know of today has transitioned into a market economy. Polayni’s definition of market economy is “a self-regulating system of markets. It is an economy directed by market prices” (Polayni, 43). To elaborate, this means every product is controlled by supply and demand, and the price is not determined by the government. Differing from today, in the past the world was based on reciprocity and redistribution, which in retrospect is gift giving, either to a one person or a larger group. Everyone relied on reciprocity in order to live. The transition to market economy was a drastic one, which furthermore changed the world today. In this essay, I will go into the work of Karl Polayni, James Rinehart and Richard Bendix, who summarized the works of Max Weber, who all discussed the transformation to market economy and how it affected our society. Karl Polanyi describes the market society as “the great transformation” in today’s economy. He believes it was significant because it changed the way the economy would work and provided maximum profit and stability for families and different societies. Before market economy, societies relied mostly on reciprocity and redistribution for trade and services. Redistribution can be defined as the distribution of goods to a central means, which is then distributed again to society. Reciprocity then means exchanging items or goods, rather than offering monetary value. Reciprocity is based on the......

...of the Chinese Revolution of 1911 was to initiate a period of great political instability and fragmentation in the country. There are a number of similarities between both political events, as the Meiji Restoration of 1868 and the Chinese Revolution of 1911 brought significant upheaval to both countries. However, the Meiji Restoration engendered the centralization of the mechanisms of governance, setting the foundations for the social and economic modernization of the country. Conversely, the Chinese Revolution of 1911 failed to produce a sound system of government capable of redressing the social and economic decline of the country.
