General Curtis E, LeMay is an American hero and an architect of Strategic Air Command (SAC). He participated in many wars and contributed his knowledge and bravery to successfully completed his missions. He was a firm believer of how effective strategic air attack will benefit the situation during war and through his time as a commander of the Strategic Air Command (SAC) organization, he had strengthened the organization and made countless accomplishments. When he took over as its commander in 1948, it consisted of little more than a few understaffed and untrained B-29 groups left over from World War II. Less than half its aircraft were operational and the crews were next to worthless. (Hickman, K.)
He believed that only way to strengthen SAC was through hard training and strict discipline. As a leader of SAC, he trained his men very hard and at the same time he also cared for his men requested better standard of living. He made many establishments during his time at SAC including missile development and a strict command and control system, when he left the command in 1957 to assume his new job as Air Force Vice Chief of Staff, Strategic Air Command (SAC) was the most powerful military force the world had ever seen. (Biographies: General Curtis Emerson Lemay.)
Another his great accomplishment was the air strike against Japan and the famous Berlin Air Lift. During World War II, he developed bombardment tactics and strategies and successfully led the air war against Japan. It was the most important strategic bombing campaign in history. After World War II, he directed the Berlin Airlift. U.S. and its allies decided to supply their sectors of the city from the air due to blockade of all ground routes by soviet. This mission lasted nearly a year and carried more than 1.5 million tons of supplies into West Berlin. (Cold war, June 26, 1948)

Workplace Diversity: a Contribution to Organisational Success

...Effective Diversity Management Essay Workplace Diversity: A Contribution to Organisational Success Abstract Workplace diversity is vital for any organisation. The benefits diversity can bring are able to drastically change the performance of an organisation. The following essay explains the essence of workplace diversity, describes the difficulties that may arise in diversity management, and presents the key benefits that it can bring to an organisation. With these issues explained, it is evident that organisations can benefit from workplace diversity and how it can make them successful. Workplace Diversity: A Contribution to Organisational Success Workplace diversity incorporates more than it seems at a glance. Diversity presumes mainly cultural, racial, and gender differences, because these are the most visible distinctions between people. There are, however, many other characteristics in which employees differ. Rice (2010) defines diversity as “differing cultures, languages, ethnicities, races, sexual orientations, religious sects, abilities, classes, ages, and national origins of individuals in an institution, workplace, or community.” (p. 96). As far as the workplace is concerned, diversity is crucial for it. Employees of different cultures, races, ages, classes and backgrounds can make their own unique contributions to the development and performance of an organisation. This is why numerous “business and governmental organisations have implemented......

Campaign Contributions

...slow evolution of federal campaign finance regulations, beginning with the Tillman Act in 1907, undercuts dramatic proclamations that Citizens United indicates a privileged where corporate interests trump the public interest and politicians do the will of the highest bidder. Corporations in the early twentieth century not only faced scattered and weak enforcement of the Tillman Act's contribution ban and thus no great deterrent to violating the ban, but also exploited glaring legal loopholes that allowed them to bankroll their favored campaigns with relative ease. Even after the enactment of independent corporate expenditure restrictions, corporations faced minimal barriers to political spending on television or in other national media. Until the FEC's creation in 1974, the ban on independent corporate spending on elections was not rigorously enforced. The relevant time frame for evaluating the decision's practical consequences is, at the very longest, the period after Congress substantially amended FECA in 1974. Campaign contributions as emphasized here discusses the ways in which contributions are made to influence new or incumbent candidates to support a particular agenda based on factors that impact the candidate personally, such as the raising of significant funds to help a candidate be re-elected, or environmental issues to even social issues are of concern. Since the last decade, millions upon millions of dollars have been spent in state judicial elections,......

...The Contributions of Management Theory and Practice to Emergency Management John C. Pine is the Director of the Disaster Science and Management, Professor-Research with the Department of Environmental Studies and Interim Chair of the Department of Geography and Anthropology at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA. (225) 578-1075 Email: httt:// Abstract This chapter takes a look at the impact that management theory and how the basic functions and practice of management as well as the role of the manager and approaches to management have contributed to the practice of emergency management. Current views of management theory stress the changing nature of the external environment and the need to understand and address these external forces for change. The contribution and role of systems theory and contingency theory to the emergency management process is stressed. Although some might view that we do not manage disasters, there is an overlap between the contribution of management theory and emergency management. Management theory stresses the need for effective planning to ensure that organizational goals are obtained. Emergency and crisis management emphasize that effective emergency response and recovery is based on good planning. Building sustainable organizations and communities is a common goal of both management and emergency management. Management and disaster-related issues and concerns along with strategies...

The clinic’s Model of Care portrays expectations for the clinic’s staff.

The human capital consists of employees working in various departments within the organization with the aim of attaining the set goals of the firm (Brun & Dugas, 2008).

Curtis V. Loether

...Case brief form Case Name | Curtis v. Loether | Citation(year) | 415 U.S. 189 (1974) | Court/J. | U.S. Supreme Court | Procedural History | District Court held that a jury trial was neither authorized by Title VIII nor required by the Seventh Amendment and denied the jury request. The Court of Appeals reversed on the jury trial issue. The Court concluded essentially that the Seventh Amendment gave respondents the right to a jury trial in this action, and therefore interpreted the statute to authorize jury trial so as to eliminate any question of its constitutionality. | Short Facts | Petitioner, an African American woman, brought a civil action suit against respondents for refusing to rent an apartment to petitioner based on her race. Petitioner contends that respondents’ action constituted a violation of§ 812 of Title VIII. The complaint sought only injunctive relief and punitive damages. A claim for compensatory damages was later added. Respondents filed a demand for a jury trial, which the district court denied. The court of appeals reversed the decision based on the jury trial issue. | Issues | Whether the Civil Rights Act of 1968 or the Seventh Amendment requires a jury trial upon demand of one of the parties in an action for damages and injunctive relief? | Holdings | Yes. The Seventh Amendment entitles either party to demand a jury trial in an action for damages in federal court under the Civil Rights Act of 1968. The right to a jury trial......

...Objectives of Punishment Curtis Woodhouse November 25, 2011 CJS/230 Many people have the different ideas of the objective of punishment in the criminal justice system. Some say that punishment is circumstantial. Different forms of punishment are effective for various forms of crime. There are cases in which retribution, prevention/deterrence, and rehabilitation are all suitable. A legal system is necessary in our society and the maintenance of this system requires punishment. However, the main focus of all punishment should be to improve society as a whole. As citizens of a community we abide by an implied social contract theory. This theory is simply that society makes rules, so that we can be civilized and that as citizens we should follow these rules. This social contact theory supports the idea that law without punishment is worthless. Punishment is needed so that there are repercussions for law breaking which discourages crime. A popular reason for punishment is that it gets criminals off the streets and protects the public. The idea is to remove an offender from society, making it physically impossible (or at least very difficult) for him or her to commit further crimes against the public while serving a sentence. Incapacitation works as long as the offenders remain locked up. There is no question that incapacitation reduces crime rates by some unknown degree. The problem is that it is very expensive. Incapacitation carries high costs not only in terms of......

Contribution Analysis

...Contribution margin analysis is another tool managers use for decision making, expenses are categorized as either fixed or variable. The variable costs are deducted from sales to obtain the contribution margin. Fixed costs are then subtracted from contribution margin to obtain net income. This information helps the manager to (1) decide whether to drop or push a product line, (2) evaluate alternatives arising from production, special advertising, and so on, (3) decide on pricing strategy and products or services to emphasize, and (4) appraise performance. For example, contribution analysis involves how to formulate a bid price on a contract, and whether to accept an order even if it is below the normal selling price. Gross margin, found in the conventional income statement, which is sales minus the cost of goods sold, is not useful for this type of decision analysis. Contribution analysis recognises that it takes time to achieve an impact and does not seek to prove an impact before it could be achieved. It provides information on whether a program is likely to achieve an impact. In terms of accountability for outcomes, contribution analysis asks if everything possible has been done to effect the achievement of the intended results and what lessons have been learnt (Mayne, 1999) Break Even Analysis According to Kerin & Petersen 2010, one of the simplest applications of contribution analysis is the break even analysis. A breakeven analysis is used to determine how......
