The Life of Jane Eyre Essay In the novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, we are introduced to Jane, the orphan protagonist of the story. When the novel first begins, she is an isolated, powerless ten- year old living with an aunt and her cousins whom do not like her. Jane feels alienated from the Reed family; therefore she spends much of her time alone. Jane is faced with two factors; one she is a girl, and two she is poor. These two factors contribute too much of Janes unhappiness, at least at this point in the book! Her class difference translates into physical difference, and Jane feels she is physically inferior to the Reed children. Her cousin John is an over-indulged only son, whom uses his gluttony to bully Jane around; he describes Jane as being thick, and unwholesome. Jane tends to deal with her problems by secluding herself from her cousins. Books provide Jane with an escape from her unhappy domestic situation. I think Jane enjoys reading because books feed Janes imagination, offering a vast world beyond the claustrophobia of Gateshead. The only problem with Jane reading is that John does not approve of Jane using heir items You have no business to take our books; you are a dependent, mamma says; you have no money; your father left you none; you aught to beg, and not to live here with gentlemans children like us. Which started a verbal fight, turned physical. John threw a book at Jane and she called him a murderer and a slave-driver. Jane is then blamed for the quarrel. As a punishment she is banished to the red-room! I think the author sent Jane to this red-room, because at this time Jane once again questions her social status!At this point in the book there is a lot of gender roles, social castes, and symbolism. I think Jane needs to leave the Reeds house, and go to Lowood where at least she can get an education. If she doesnt fit into society now, at least with an education she can make a place in this world for herself!

Women Sports Of Today Women and women's sports have made great strides since the mid 70's. Although, gender inequality in sports is still common in most sports today. Prior to the early 1970 women did not have teams or similar programs that the males had. In 1972 the government finally stepped in and passed Title IX of the Educational Amendments. Today women are given many opportunities to participate in sports. While opportunities have increased for women, the equal rights of men and women's athletics are still heavily favoring men's athletics'. Many sports played by women are still seen as inferior to men sports. Men can make a wealth profession from playing professional sports. Women have little to no options, as there are few professional women's team. The NBA and the WNBA are examples of a professional sport that both men and women have there own league. The biggest difference in the leagues is that the NBA players make extremely larger salary than the women of the WNBA. Main reason for the salary di fference is that people are willing to pay a larger amount to see a NBA game. Also the NBA has spent millions in advertisements. In most cases, women's athletics programs are seriously lacking the funds as compared to men's programs. In most universities men's programs have the better gym, the nicer facilities, the newest equipment, and the top notch coaching staff. While the women's teams are not subjected to the same luxuries as the men's teams. This is due to the bonuses schools have by having a excellent men's athletic program. Football teams like Nebraska, Texas, and Michigan rely heavily on their football teams. When there football team has a good year they will participate in a big time bowl, such as the 'Sugar Bowl'. Half of the money generated from the bowl is given to the school. This money usually ends up being a lot of money. Every year these schools depend on their football team to keep them financially sound. These schools can afford to pay a coach a large salary or build a new football stadium. These schools may have excellent programs for women's sports, but no female sport team can create the money that a big time football program can. Social equality of Men and Women's athletics has come a long way since 1970. Today women have some professional teams and have many sports opportunities in school. Racial discrimination in sports has existed since the beginning of sports. Much of all sports now are heavily desegregated, but racial discrimination has not disappeared. In the 1980's color was an issue as two black members of a golf team were not allow to play due to blacks not being allow to play on the course. Even with professional athletes, color has been an issue. Arthur Ashe was a professional tennis player who couldn't play tennis in some places in the United States. In 1986 black players of the Boston Red Sox were not allow to attend some clubs in spring training. Owners of professional teams could not afford to turn their heads on black athletes, as black athletes became their meal ticket to a successful franchise. While many black athletes are awarded with large financial contracts the owners are ones who are making more money. Without desegregation in some sports, owners would have been missing out on a golden opportunity. Some sports have been slow in the process of desegregation. Hockey for example is a sport that is mainly populated with white males. Players like Anson Carter of the Boston Bruins and Mike Grier of the Edmonton Oilers are example of black hockey player. Main reason that the NHL has few black hockey players is that many hockey players are from Canada and the northern States of the US. Place that are scarcly populated with black hockey players. Other reasons are that hockey is an expensive game to play and is mostly played in a cold weather area. Anson Carter is a product of his environment. He grew playing hockey as a child in Toronto, Ontario, a hockey city. While other friends quit hockey he stayed with it and now is a profession hockey player. Carter has received

Week 5 Tools And Decision Making Example Week 5 Tools And Decision Making Ã¢â¬â Coursework Example Running head: week 5 tools and decision making 14th February In any organization disruption ofwork flow may occur due to system failures or workers disrupting the system. Management information system (MIS) is commonly used tool in the organizations that want decision making to be effective. The role of management information system is to support decision support system (DSS), which are based on computer programs and they are capable of analyzing organization data and present it in a systematic manner.Decision making is an integral part in any firm since a lot of operations will be carried and stakeholders must be involved in decision making (Al-Zhrani 2010). Team work is essential and before implementing management information system, all the stakeholders must be involved fully since they must be guided on how the system will be working. Management information system can be the most preferred tool in GHI since the system will reduce the time wasted since there must be a system admin istrator to control the system. The system can be programmed to suit the organization needs. Since GHI organization wants an electronic system, the best system to use is management information system since the staffs can access the system which is based on the decision support system. The security measures that are only within the organization will make it more complex from the hackers who can interfere with organization. One of the challenges is that the system need increased monitoring to avoid the system to fail and the GHI will require delegating duties to the managers to keep on monitoring the system. Lastly, the system must need professional personnel who are able to run MIS and still make decision, GHI will have either to outsource or employee one who have the capability of running MIS and making decision process.Tool What kind of information will each tool provide?Under what conditions is the tool most applicable?Management information system (MIS)Provides decision support s ystem.When work flow is not normal or when time is wasted trying to update the system. Transaction processing system(TPS)Tactical decisionsApplicable when carrying transactions only.

Riordan Manufacturing - Case Study Example Riordan Manufacturers has to think of other ways to ensure that timely delivery or customer access is kept and goods delivered to the quantity set by the company. This document outlines ways Riordan Manufacturing can distribute its products even with the Huffman Trucking on the slacking process. The five-year contract entered with Huffman Trucking restricts Riordan Manufacturing from exiting the contract before its expiry; they therefore have to continue with them even with their delays costing them. Riordan still pressure Huffman on the delivery process in a different way. They have to set a certain limit of shipments which must be met by the Huffman Trucking in a given period. Failure to meet this limit, the company can sue Huffman or even exit the contract. This would keep Huffman on toes and ensure that they transport the goods to the required destinations in time. Riordan can also put up on distribution retails all over United States. This will ensure customers need not purchase their goods from the main company but can just visit the nearest retail and demand what they want. Self service can also be implemented by the company (Kotler, 2009). Customers can purchase the goods and personally come for them from the company premises. This will even save the company the expenses of having to ship the goods to the customers. Direct mailing is also another method which can be used by Riordan to ensure customers receive their goods in time. Riordan needs to acquire customersÃ¢â¬â¢ direct addresses which will ensure access by the company. The company can also use wholesale agreements to ensure their customers are reached (Kotler, 2009). The wholesalers come for the goods from the premises and Riordan only receives the final price after the wholesalers have deducted their costs. This will reduce the time taken by the company to reach their customers. Riordan Manufacturers
