...mother's estate. Pushkin had four children from his marriage to Natalya: Maria (b. 1832, touted as a prototype of Anna Karenina), Alexander (b. 1833), Grigory (b. 1835), and Natalya (b. 1836) the last of whom married, morganatically, into the royal house of Nassau to Nikolaus Wilhelm of Nassau and became the Countess of Merenberg. [edit] Literary legacy [pic] [pic] Memorial to Pushkin in Shanghai, China Critics consider many of his works masterpieces, such as the poem The Bronze Horseman and the drama The Stone Guest, a tale of the fall of Don Juan. His poetic short drama "Mozart and Salieri" was the inspiration for Peter Shaffer's Amadeus. Pushkin himself preferred his verse novel Eugene Onegin, which he wrote over the course of his life and which, starting a tradition of great Russian novels, follows a few central characters but varies widely in tone and focus. "Onegin" is a work of such complexity that, while only about a hundred pages long, translator Vladimir Nabokov needed two full volumes of material to fully render its meaning in English. Because of this difficulty in translation, Pushkin's verse remains largely unknown to English readers. Even so, Pushkin has profoundly influenced western writers like Henry James.[12] Pushkin's works also provided fertile ground for Russian composers. Glinka's Ruslan and Lyudmila is the earliest important Pushkin-inspired opera, and a landmark in the tradition of Russian music. Tchaikovsky's operas Eugene Onegin (1879) and......

Alex Sander

...Issues Alex Sander’s behaviour can be summed up in the following points: • He doesn’t give much importance to performance review system as he thinks that the 360̊ performance review system was just a waste of time • He believed that his temper was the most effective management tool for him because he feels that his anger resulted in the increase of the output of the company employees • He lacked the quality of being an effective manager as he was incapable of getting work done from others. • His aggressive nature in the completion of the project and believes that being pushy and commanding is the only way to get the job done. • Lack of patience in Alex is also one of the major issues as he gets irritated of explaining things to his employees more than a couple of times • For him the success was only in terms of money as he only looked at the fact the how much more amount of return he has made on his investment Sam Glass (one of the product group supervisors) has certain issues: • He considers the 360̊ performance review as an important part and wants Alex to take all the survey seriously • Glass is also concerned about the working style of Alex because while working in a team he doesn’t work as a team rather he works as an individual and tries to complete all the work on his own • Besides all flaws that Alex has, Sam Glass still wants to have Alex in his office because of his hard work and his dedication toward the......

Alex as an Antihero

...Alex as an Antihero The question that has plagued scientists, sociologists and psychologists alike over time has been a simple "Are humans born completely good or evil?". Though the question still remains elusive, Anthony Burgess attmepts to make a point about humanity in his novel Clockwork Orange. Burgess presents the idea that good and evil are both necessities in humans, and that often it is up to freewill and choice to become one or the other. In his novel, Burgess created a character that chose to do many bad things voluntarily, but near the end the same character decided to show some good qualities and good intentions when goodness was not being forced upon him. Alex's presentation as an antihero emphasizes Burgess' point of the co-existance of good and evil. Alex fufills many qualities to being identified as an antihero. He has visible flaws, creating an imperfect image, and he appears to be more "gritty" in personality instead of being more refined. When Alex decides to engage in criminal activity he never thinks about what the right or moral choice is, he often thinks of what will benefit only himself. As seen on page 23, Alex punches his friend, Dim, in the nose as revenge for not composing himself and being mannered in public showing that Alex does seek revenge for personal satisfaction. Lastly, Alex also posesses qualities in himself that would normally belong to a villian, such as greed, amorallity and having violent tendencies. There are also several......

A Day in the Life of Alex Sander

...SITUATION Alex Sander is a young and promising product manager in the Toiletries Division of Landon Care Products Inc. Over the past year, he has successfully rebranded two of Landon’s skin care products in the United States. Alex has created a winning enviornment at the Toiletries Division by applying very high standards to everyone, and often pushing his staff to the limits. A recent 360 degree review has revealed that Alex’s strong drive to succeed has come at a cost, as his staff are highly disenchanted by his iron-fisted ways. (Alex has since discounted the importance of the these findings.) Sam Glass, Alex’s direct manager, is one of the three Product Group supervisors and is coordinating the 360 degree Performance/Feedback Review discussion with Alex. As part of the 360 process comments have been recorded from selected individuals higher and lower in the organizational hierarchy that the individual receiving the feedback. Sam is scheduled to have a discussion with Alex on his 360 process comments and has indicated a contradiction with the results and Alex’s self-assessment. ANALYSIS Alex Sander is described by his staff as a successful, but overly-critical, narcissistic, demanding and inconsiderate micro-manager. These attributes fit the Harvard Business Review Guide to Office Politics’ (Dillon 2013, p. 15) description of a “Control-Freak Boss”. With reference to the Guide, it must be understood that Alex is behaving in this manner not because he is evil.......

...evil” portrait of Alex. He is a sort of incarnation of House, MD, a main character of a famous TV series: he is a high performer, but he has a lack of ability to work well with others. Narcissism, Machiavellianism and arrogance are three important negative traits of his personality emerge from the data and from the case. Alex’s Napoleonic temper negatively affects his work environment causing nervous and distressed co-workers without seeing anything wrong with this situation as long as the job gets done. Therefore his co-workers respect him, but they do not see him as a team leader. If I were Glass, I would invest more time in helping Alex progress in Landon. First, I would read and analyze his 360 performance review with him because there are plenty of comments on Alex that should open his eyes to his arrogance. Since he is a narcissist, it would be hard to get Alex admit his weakness, but he definitely needs a wakeup call to let him fully understand and take seriously this issue. If he wants to be a well rounded leader, he absolutely needs to understand how his attitude affects others emotions and work performance. For this reason I would implement a reward system that takes into account also his ability to evaluate co-workers contributions, not just economic or financial goals. I would suggest Alex to go to counseling to help him relate to others, and workshops on performance reviews to teach him the validity and strength of a 360 review. Therefore, Alex will......

A Day in the Life of Alex Sander

...Alex Sander’s Organizational Behavior Review Alex Sander is the project manager at Landon Care Products, Inc. Alex is smart. Alex is self-driven. Alex is an asset to his company in that he makes intelligent decisions, faces challenges straight on, and confidently makes things happen while getting things done. In over just one year at Landon, Alex rebranded two national skin care products. Sam Glass, Alex’s supervisor, expected Alex to cause waves within the work place when he hired him, due to his aggressive personality. This is exactly what happened. What Sam failed to predict when he hired Alex a year ago, was the extent to which Alex would cause waves among co-workers. A recent 360( review conducted at Landon justifies Alex’s disregard for co-worker’s feelings. And while this performance review is the issue Glass wishes to address, Alex has recently voiced an interest in moving further up in the company to a higher, more influential position. Alex sees himself as a leader. The problem is that while his co-workers respect him, they do not see him as a team leader. In order to help Alex become a leader, Glass needs to help Alex address this critical issue. And because of Alex’s personality, this will not be easy. Alex’s personality needs to be briefly addressed to help clarify the reasons behind the problem he is having at work. Alex has the personality characteristic of Machiavellianism, which according to Robbins and Judge, this means that he is pragmatic...

Social Media and Sports Alex

...Alex Young Mr. Chester English 12 CP Rough Draft 3/27/12 How has Social Networking affected the sporting industry? From all the premier sports athletes like LeBron James, Aaron Rodgers, Andy Roddick, Michael Phelps to all of the big-time sports anchors and newscasts like Chris Berman or Dick Vitale. Social Media has changed the dynamics of how people watch and follow sports on a daily basis. Social networking tools like Twitter and Facebook are two big networks that allow people to stay up to date with their favorite team and/or athlete. Social networking began to boom around seven or eight years ago and is continuing to grow rapidly all around the world. I use both Twitter and Facebook on a day-to-day basis. I am checking on the news in the sports world by “following” my favorite athletes via Twitter and I check my favorite teams fan page on Facebook. Twitter is used more by the athletes and sports anchors due to its constant status updates (tweets) and ability to follow only a certain number of people of whom they choose. I entered in the “Twitter world” in 2011 and began to see how it was growing into the phenomenon it is today. It seems like in 2011 that every league, team, player, and even commissioners have their own Facebook pages and Twitter accounts. The real concerning point is the fact that college and pro sports players have been on twitter and have been known to let their emotions take control of their better judgment.

Alex Ferguson

...Alex Ferguson’s leadership style Case study Introduction Alexander Chapman Ferguson, known as Alex Ferguson, was born in 1941, in Govan Glasgow Scotland. As a teenager he was working as a tool’s apprentice in his father shipyard then in his 19, he became a labor union activist and an active member of the “Labor Party”. As far as Ferguson’s “the football player” career is concerned, actually, he did not achieve a successful career. In fact, as a player Ferguson started with a small local football team the “Queens Park and St Johnston” club. Afterward, he got the chance to join the “Glasgow Ranger” club, yet this union did not last since he resigned after being responsible for the defeat of his team against its fierce rival the “Glasgow Celtic” club. So determined, Alex Ferguson joined the “East Stirling” football club but this time as a manager rather than as a player. His first management period lasted for three seasons and then was recruited by the Scottish football team “Aberdeen”. With limited resources, Ferguson achieved the unthinkable, he won with his club the “European Winners’ Cup” during the 1982-3 season. This achievement with “Aberdeen” was a milestone in his career and made him “THE” coach that many big names in the European football scene like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, and Tottenham, wanted to engage him. Ultimately, Ferguson chose to join Manchester United (MU). During his reign, Manchester United advanced from an ordinary local team to a top-class......
