Should the United States have intervened in foreign affairs in the early twentieth century? There are many opinions on this topic; however, I believe that imperialism, the policy of extending the rule or authority of an empire or nation over foreign countries, was a smart decision for the United States. Imperialism was the correct decision for the US because of its mandating by legal documents, education of foreign countries, and increase in land and resources.
There are many concerns that come to mind when discussing the current state of Afghanistan’s economy. Twenty years of war has crippled the economy and citizens must find ways to survive day-by-day by scrounging enough food for themselves and family. Citizens do not have the facilities to receive an education or treatment for medical conditions. According to Afghanistan Facts, on average, men die at forty years of age and women at forty-three (“Afghanistan Facts”). There are hundreds of thousands people that are disabled due to war, land mines, or lack of fruit and vegetables in Afghanistan and there is not any help available to them. Afghanistan is the most heavily mined country in the world and according to Kevin Whitelaw; mine-related injuries number up to 300 per month (Whitelaw). Citizens that are willing and able to work are struggling to eat, making it impossible to help others in need. The problems that are evident in Afghanistan’s economy are government issues, trade/foreign relations, and lack of available labor.
This article may be one of the most informative passages to what many may refer to as the fitness “bible”. It is the clearest, most concise version I have ever seen.

Theoretically speaking the mid section is and always will be the first body fat on last body fat off.
Riordan Manufacturing has come across some concerns and issues with the employees. Employee motivation and retention has become an issue within the company. Riordan’s human resources processes are prohibiting the empowerment of employees, delaying potential growth due to unbalanced profits, and a decrease in sales. The human resources department needs to address these concerns because if they do not address these current issues, the company will not be able to continue their business strategy. The issues preventing logical human capital management is lack of employee motivation, a high turnover rate in strategic areas, the pay levels are below industry standards, and there is a lack of structure in the performance review process throughout the company. Riordan Manufacturing can work these issues out by creating a coaching and feedback process, planning career development programs, and updating pay for performance reward systems.
“Is discipline as important as reward to the leader in influencing followers? If so, what is the best method of implementing?” [adsense:336x280:1:1] Discipline is as critical to good leadership. In order to motivate and manipulate followers to do things they are not inclined to do on their own, a leader will have to prove and show their authority.

Elizabethan Era, the similarities and differences this era has to our present day. [adsense:336x280:1:1] Similarities: Elizabethan education was generally for boys of the upper and middle classes. However, upper class girls, often members of the Nobility were also given an education. To me this is a similarity because up until the civil rights movement it was the same here in the US. Another similarity was the basic principles of childhood. These basic elements included respecting their mother and father, asking their parents blessing, having table manners, and having education start in the home.
