In society today there are many types of opportunities for Americans to achieve the American dream, such as having a high quality career or owning a business of your own. However, many will argue the discrimination on my different levels will hiders certain people from achieving such dream. Is having a unique name one of the discrimination in society that would cause a person to fall in between the cracks and cause them not to achieve high? In my opinion, I believe the having a name that is very unique causes discrimination that can make it almost impossible for a American lifestyle of the family, white picket fence and a booming career. Today in our world parents choose name that are not traditional names. The younger parents and the more urban parents tend to choose names such as Sadiquah and Tyrek. Beginning from childhood the discrimination comes where people of todays’ society will say that those children come the ghetto. Those children are already put into a category that will already hinder that way they think or grow up. They end up following that path that their name already chooses for them. Some children end up escaping that path that was probably destine for them and grow smart individuals who attended college and give back to the society. However, when it comes to handing in the resume for a job. A source states that job applicants with white names had a 50% chance of getting a callback over those who had African-American names. If that were the case then those resumes end up in the reject pile. Moreover names those are of African-American decent that also very unique probably would get no call back for an interview. I feel that no one should be judge by their name and or their background. Some of the best workers come from people that have unique name or some of the best people come from poverty or the ghetto. There needs to be some Federal regulation to crack down on the discrimination against certain people.…...

Divinely Unique

...Divinely unique - Aandaal This being the month of Maargazhi, a post about the unique Azhwar known to the world would be nice. The Azhwar is none other than Aandaal. She is unique in various respects • Of the twelve Azhwars, she is the only female Azhwar • She had an unwavering devotion to Lord Vishnu and married him at Srirangam • She started the ritual called the Paavai Nonbu, that is followed to this day. This ritual is followed by girls so that they get a husband of a good character • She is considered to be the incarnate of Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu • The temple for her at Srivilliputur stands as a official symbol in the seal of Government of the Tamil Nadu, as a symbol of the Art and Architecture of the Tamil Civilisation Let us see the life history of Aandaal. She is believed to the incarnate of Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu. Legend says that Goddess Lakshmi wanted to praise Lord Vishnu, by being the daughter of the famous Azhwar, Vishnu Sitthar famously known as Periazhwar. So she was born and was found as a baby under the Thulasi plant in the temple garden by Periazhwar. From then on Periazhwar considered her to be a gift that Lord Vishnu gave him and doted her a his own daughter. He taught her the all the philosophies and stories he knew about Lord Krishna and also taught her to attain poetic eloquence in the Tamil language. He named her Kodhai meaning Garland.  Kodhai grew up as a kid just thinking......

The Names

...The Names ( revised ) This year is the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks: a tragic incident that impacts every aspect of the Americans’ lives. This year, there are many television programs and commemorations dedicated to the victims of the September 11 attacks. In the end of a television broadcast, Billy Collins— who was appointed United States Laureate for the years 2001-2003 in June 2001— narrated his poem: “The Names.” “The Names” was presented to the public at the first anniversary of the incident. This poem is about the people whom we lost, and the horrid day which we experienced. The first thing we notice in this poem is the names mentioned within the poem. The final count of the September 11 attacks was 2,749. It is impossible for the author to incorporate all of the names in one poem. He uses all 26 letters to symbolize the names of all the victims; he chooses one name to represent each letter. Here is an example: “I started with A, with Ackerman, as it happened, then Baxter and Calabro, Davis and Eberling, names falling into place as droplets fell through the dark.” Among all the victims, some people were unaccounted for. The author assigns the letter X to represent those missing people: “Let X stand, if it can, for the ones unfound.” During the September 11 attacks, posters and signs were made to show whom the families were looking for. The missing people were announced on TV and radio broadcasts. On each anniversary of the......

Names

...Names Ever since I was a little boy, I always remembered wondering how and why things were named what they are; also why/ how the words were formed. On long road trips/ vacations I would look at street signs and store names in foreign places and wonder why things were named as they were. A group of people I thought who put a lot of meaning into what they named things were the Native American Indians. All of the places, people, even animals they named were very symbolic, and had an important meaning. I feel as if in today’s world we don’t put as much thought into the things we name. Even when parents name their kids, some just slap a name on their forehead (not literally.) They don’t think about how they want their child to be raised, or they want them to become as an adult. My good friend was given a made up name when he was born because his father was drunk. To me that’s just cruel. For one thing, it would be rather hard for him to complete an essay like this, but also knowing your name which is a big part of you, has no real meaning. My name, Owen, was passed down 3 generations before me. I asked my father “why has our name been passed down this long? Why did you name me it?” he told me that his great grandfather was born into slavery and explained to me how he was not given a name until he was released and shipped to Jamaica. There, he was adopted at a young age into a family. The family said my great grandfather was a fighter; taking a lot of abuse and seeing a......

...Essay 16 Local Area Networks Marshall D. Abrams and Harold J. Podell Local area network (LAN) communications security is addressed in this essay. LANs are introduced as providing: (1) a private communications facility, (2) services over a relatively limited geographic area, (3) a high data rate for computer communications, and (4) common access to a wide range of devices and services. Security issues pertinent to LANs are discussed. For example, LANs share many security problems and approaches for their solutions with point-to-point conventional communications systems. In addition, LANs have some unique problems of their own: (1) universal data availability, (2) passive and active wiretap threats, (3) end-to-end access control, and (4) security group control. Countermeasures include physical protection, and separation by physical, logical, and encryption methods. Trusted Network Interface Units, encryption, and key distribution are also discussed. Examples are discussed to illustrate the different approaches to LAN security. The examples in this essay are a composite of several existing product features, selected to demonstrate the use of encryption for confidentiality, and trusted system technology for a local area network. Local area network technology/topology overview This essay addresses LAN security from the viewpoint of open systems interconnection (OSI). That is, we focus on the seven-layer OSI protocols (illustrated in Figure 1); in fact, we concentrate on...

...noticed with relief. Once I got around the cafeteria, building three was easy to spot. A large black "3" was painted on a white square on the east corner. I felt my breathing gradually creeping toward hyperventilation as I approached the door. I tried holding my breath as I followed two unisex raincoats through the door. The classroom was small. The people in front of me stopped just inside the door to hang up their coats on a long row of hooks. I copied them. They were two girls, one a porcelain-colored blonde, the other also pale, with light brown hair. At least my skin wouldn't be a standout here. I took the slip up to the teacher, a tall, balding man whose desk had a nameplate identifying him as Mr. Mason. He gawked at me when he saw my name — not an encouraging response — and of course I flushed tomato red. But at least he sent me to an empty desk at the back without introducing me to the class. It was harder for my new classmates to stare at me in the back, but somehow, they managed. I kept my eyes down on the reading list the teacher had given me. It was fairly basic: Bronte, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Faulkner. I'd already read everything. That was comforting… and boring. I wondered if my mom would send me my folder of old essays, or if she would think that was cheating. I went through different arguments with her in my head while the teacher droned on. When the bell rang, a nasal buzzing sound, a gangly boy with skin problems and hair black as an oil slick leaned across......

Unique

...Chels Smith Composition & Rhetoric ENGL 1101 I believe I’m Unique I believe in multiplicity. I believe in the uniqueness of the individual. I believe in my strengths, my weaknesses, my flaws, and my abilities. I believe in you, and your fashionable impact on this world. I believe in the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful. Because I believe every single person is amazingly and brilliantly beautiful, nevertheless of any normally defining stereotypes of individual physical appearance. For example, I, for one, am a lesbian. That is simply my sexual orientation; it is a part of who I am. It is part of what makes me unique. You are probably asexual, bisexual, gay, lesbian, pansexual, questioning, queer, or straight. I think that each and every one of these “labels” of sexual identity is perfectly tolerable. It is part of what makes you unique. What would be the fun in the world if everyone was the exact same? However, I wish that it was more acceptable to be different from the social norm. People look down upon me, simply because this one trait of mine isn’t the same as theirs. How does that make any sense? Just because maybe my life goals are a little different, and I don’t live up to society’s prejudices, my way of life is unacceptable? I don’t think so. And I don’t think that anyone can tell you that your way of life is wrong either. Each of us creates our own fate out of the certain circumstances that were given to us. I am a sister, a friend, a......

My Name

...In English my name means someone who is wise and honorable. According to the Biblical references, my name means judgment of God. In Chinese, my name means lucky family. My Chinese name was chosen by my wise grandparents. My English name was chosen by my parents from a movie. Daniel is also the name of the main character of The Karate Kid, Daniel LaRusso. In this movie, Daniel moves to a new city and being the new kid in town, he gets bullied by a gang of tough students from the local karate school. Daniel befriends a Japanese handy-man, Mr Miyagi who is the janitor at his apartment block. He is later trained by him & taught the ancient art of kung fu & eastern philosophy which he uses to overcome the bullies. My name is Daniel because of that main character. I am like that person because I was also bullied when I was in elementary school. Although I like kung fu, I did not learn it to overcome my bully problem. I do not wish to be like Daniel LaRusso because I do not think that violence is the solution to our problems. People have responded to my name as if it were an original name and as if there were too many Daniels in the world. When people say my name, they make it sound plain and not unique at all. So instead of calling me Daniel, I ask them to call me Dan or Danny. A little variation helps make my name more unique. A nickname I would like would be a nickname that makes mean important person. Something with power that people would obey me by. A nickname like...

Aadhaar - India's Unique Indetification

...Aadhaar: India’s ‘Unique Identification’ System In our politics, we have yet to tap into our new language of hope. For this to be mirrored in our political institutions it requires us to imagine an India that rests not on the struggles of our past, but on the promise and challenges of the future. It requires us to shape systems and policies that give people the ability to travel in search of work, to educate their children and to tap into economic growth.1 — Nandan Nilekani Nandan Nilekani, chairman of the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), sipped his coffee while thinking about how to reply to the journalist badgering him and his core team about UIDAI’s challenges. “Will you actually be able to deliver ‘unique identification’ to every Indian resident?” asked the journalist. It was August 30, 2012, three years after the government of India (GoI) had approved the UIDAI project plan. In that time, UIDAI had chalked up some victories. 190 million people had been enrolled within two years of the initial rollout in September 2010. The Australian and Indonesian governments were studying the UIDAI system to adapt it for themselves. Yet some were skeptical that UIDAI would meet its interim goal to cover 600 million of India’s 1.2 billion residents by 2014, and whether the time, cost, and effort were justified. Nilekani responded, “175 million Indians have received a letter in the post giving them a 12-digit number.” India had the largest number of post......

What's in a Name

..."What's in a name? Misidentifying the Debtor under Revised Article 9. This article addresses the harsh penalties imposed on a creditor for incorrectly naming a debtor entity on a financing statement. As you might expect, misidentifying a debtor on a financing statement can mean the difference between having a secured claim and an unsecured claim. However, what you might not expect is the degree of error necessary to render a financing statement “seriously misleading” under revised Uniform Commercial Code §9-506, thereby rendering it ineffective. The new legal standard, coupled with strict search logic standards being adopted by filing offices are making it much easier to challenge the perfection of a security interest on the basis of minor errors in the debtor’s name. So… "What's in a name? Well, when trying to perfect a security interest under Revised Article 9, “that which we call a rose by any other name definitely does not smell as sweet." INTRO: [PMSI] In today’s economy, selling unsecured on open account may carry significant risk for vendors. However, taking a security interest in the merchandise sold may reduce or eliminate such risk. This type of security interest, called a purchase money security interest or "PMSI", is the most common and important secured transaction under article 9. To obtain a valid PMSI, the debtor must first execute a security agreement giving the vendor a security interest in described merchandise. Then, the vendor......

...My first recommendation would be to continue to invest and grow in previously under-penetrated markets. By applying a lot of focus in this area, the company would be able to optimise on the lack of existing focus in the countries, and make a name for themselves worldwide. Burberry have already positioned themselves to be able to do such a thing in China with the acquisition of the Burberry business in China. For about £65m, the Group acquired 50 stores across 30 cities, which had previously been operated by its Hong Kong based franchisee. This acquisition gives the Group control of the Burberry brand in the fastest-growing luxury market in the world. Ten new stores have already been opened since the acquisition, including the brand’s most digitally-advanced flagship in the world in Beijing. Merchandising and inventory initiatives have successfully driven productivity in existing stores, with comparative store sales up about 30% in the second half of the year. By continuing with this focus in China specifically, where they have already had signs of success and growth, the company would be able to build on their brand name and attract new markets throughout China, and also the rest of the Far East as China tends to be a trend setter in that part of the world. This strategy would be a relatively low risk one for Burberry, as they already have the foundations there that are showing success and so, with use of good market research to find out specific locations, this could...

Swatch a Unique Success Story

...1. Swatch is a unique Success story. Why has the company been so successful? Was it important that the Swiss watch industry company recapture the lower end of the market?why? why not? The outstanding success of a Swiss watch manufacturer during the 1980s was the result of a careful and well-executed marketing plan, brought on by necessity. For years the Swiss were world leaders in the watch industry. In 1974 their worldwide market share was 30%. Then the Japanese actively began to produce and market quartz watches, which the Swiss viewed as a passing fashion. Quartz digital watches were, however, no fad and by 1983 the Swiss share of world markets for watches had fallen dramatically to 9%. The Swiss manufacturer SMH carried out extensive research in its watch markets and carefully analysed patterns of consumer behaviour. Marketing experts advised the company that a turnaround was possible if an inexpensive, good-quality quartz analog watch could be developed, since the market was saturated with digitals. Gradually, a marketing plan was devised and implemented resulting in the introduction of the Swatch in 1984, which has since revolutionised the world watch industry. Based on their extensive analysis of consumer behaviour and lifestyle, SMH adopted a strategy that completely changed the concept of a wrist watch. Watches were to be a fashion accessory first and a watch second. They would also be analog rather than digital. Product planning......
