Social media is a platform on the internet used to share and connect with other users or viewers almost instantly. Social media can be tracked back to one website alone called Six Degrees, launched in 1997. From this, the internet transformed into an outlet for instant messaging and blogging that can almost do everything from sites that allow users to share photos, to being able to meet new people and connect with old friends.

Disadvantages of Virtual Teams
Cost of Technology - The successful working of virtual team is supported by the efficient use of multiple communication technologies such as instant messaging, emails and video-conferencing, among others. No one tool can provide the complete support. The cost associated with these installation and maintenance tools is little on the higher side.

organisations to interact with their team (Smith, 2018). With instant-messaging, shared task managers, and a directory of the entire staff, the app allows for improved communication channels. Instead of sending emails or paging a doctor, using a social network such as Forward better facilitates discussion, quick messaging, and encrypts information to avoid any privacy concerns (Smith, 2018). This is an opportunity for organisations to save money on pagers and have greater efficiency in the workplace.

Very few have the time to attend family get-togethers meant to create family reunions because it is very easy to maintain constant communication with family members who are away from their native countries. This is characterized by the generation of people that prefer to communicate through their technological devices rather than having personal interactions with their counterparts.

The Tendency To Lack Empathy
Webster's Dictionary defines empathy as “the ability to understand and share the feelings
of another”, which is one of the most inherent skills that humans possess. It promotes love and
compassion and helps us understand different perspectives. We grow this ability through real life
experiences and observations. And while empathy is one of the most important aspects of
communication, it seems to get lost between mediums. The internet provides us with a myriad of
interconnection opportunities from video blogging to instant messaging. This, however, does not

The United States today is considered one of the top technologically advanced countries in the world. This can be looked at in a very good way but it also can be viewed as a problem. Since most people of the United States are to be considered economically stable, we can assume that a vast majority of these people have access to a cell phone at any time. The effects of access to a cell phone are viewed by society to be very helpful but it also brings forth many problems.

Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants
The short story Hills like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway is a story about a man and woman who are sitting at a bar at a small train station somewhere in Spain. They seem to be having a heated conversation about a mysterious “operation”. The author never explicitly says what the issue is between the man and woman, but it can be assumed it is about a huge and personal decision they have to make because of the literary devices the author uses. Throughout the story the author hints at what the mysterious operation really is. Hemingway uses symbolism, setting, and imagery to convey

In Steely Library’s digital archives, one of the postcards from the Gilliam family collection is entitled Western Kentucky Asylum for the Insane, Hopkinsville, KY. The postcard dates back to 1915 and portrays a beautiful building, complete with red bricks and white columns. Many of the insane asylums around this time were built similarly, but even their picturesque exterior could not hide the horrors which occurred within. Insane asylums built in the early to mid 1900s were still getting on their feet, and many of them encountered problems with patient care early on

and stare at the sky, until the swirling clouds began to take on our imaginative shapes mingled
together by our fantastical minds. We would grip imaginary weapons and fight, thrusting swords
like the most violent of fantasy pirates. These unforgettable days went on and on, a never ending

In order to understand the threats that robotics may pose to human employment in the future, it is important to examine the ways in which robots and computerization are already influencing different employment industries today, and how they have changed our labor practices in the past. If this information is then compared with current trends and statistics in New Zealand’s employment market conclusions can be drawn about how robotics might influence New Zealand employment in the next thirty years.

Comparison Between the Portrayal of Tom Buchanan and Jay Gatsby in Chapters 1 to 6
Fitzgerald purposefully portrays Jay Gatsby and Tom Buchanan in contrasting ways to emphasise the variety of money within the American market, during the era in which the novel is set. A major difference between the two men is ‘new money’ and ‘old money’, where Gatsby represents ‘new money’, but Daisy and Tom represent ‘old money’. The contrast between the two comes down to where the money originated from; "Old money" families have fortunes dating from the 19th century or before, have built up powerful and influential social connections and tend to hide their wealth and

Also it will control lighting, climate, entertainment systems, and appliances. It may also include home security such as access control and alarm systems.

Fredrich Nietzche once said “The individual has always struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the the privilege of owning yourself.” In my opinion, I believe this quote is true. Many people feel like they have to be a certain way for society to like them. When in reality, they want to be true to to themselves, but they are fearful of judgement.

This theory is actually an extension of an already established theory with the name of Golden Arches Theory of Conflict Prevention.

Friedman presented the example of Dell because it runs one of the major global supply chain networks in the world.
This theory basically outlines that due to economic inter-dependence of the countries with each other, it is hardly a chance that these countries will actually engage into war. Global organizations maintain a diversified and well-oiled supply chain in order to ensure a

The rose with large, sharp thorns in my visual representation symbolizes Katherine as she does not obey men and physically harms them to get what she wants as even though she is pretty and has high status she has a dangerous, sharp personality. The colour of the rose represents her love, passion and anger as she has many layers much like the rose

Genetic engineering is also called genetic modification or GM. It involves modifying the genome of an organism by introducing a gene from another organism to result in a desired characteristic.
How has genetic engineering worked until now, and what are the limitations?
Generally it uses what’s known as a bacterial vector. In simple terms, you take the stretch of DNA you want to insert into an organism – say, for example, the DNA that makes a carrot produce vitamin A. You insert it into a bacterium, usually agrobacterium tumefaciens, and you introduce that bacterium into the organism you want to modify, say a rice plant. The bacterium acts as a delivery mechanism, inserting that stretch of

In developed nations such as the United States, polite phrases and etiquette such as “Nice to meet you” or “How are you?” are friendly and useful for small talk, but they are completely empty of true meaning and goodwill due to centuries of repetition, and should be avoided as they are a waste of words and breath if a person does not truly mean it.
Common phrases such as “please” and “thank you” have lost their meaning. They act only as the default frame of conversations, but they have no substance or sincerity. The origin of certain etiquette such as saying “goodbye” or “farewell” to guests is the ancient Nordic value of hospitality. Guests were seen as a test sent by

Throughout the years, policing has evolved in many ways that people couldn’t have even imagined. During the beginning of policing in America, officers were known as “watchmen”, and were volunteer workers. This method proved to be ineffective for crime fighting, and many watchmen were only doing the job to avoid military service (Gaines, Kappeler, and Vaughn 1999). It was not until 1838 that the first municipal police force was established, which was in the city of Boston, and later followed by New York City in 1845 (Harring, 1983). Once established, volunteer

Audism is not an ‘-ism’ that is brought to the media’s attention often. In this sense, it does not seem to have as much force behind it as other common prejudices fought against like “sexism” or “racism”. However, that does not mean it does not exist. There was no word for discrimination against the Deaf community until 1975, yet, individuals faced brutal physical and mental torment hundreds of years. Creating a name for a type of oppression acknowledges that it exists. It validates the ill-treatment of Deaf people’s and the wrongfulness and cruelty of the oppressors. “Audism’ is “the
