Leadership has long been an important topic in the political, commercial and armed forces arenas over the years. However, despite all the challenges inherent in leadership operations; leadership has, until recently, received limited attention in the area of humanitarian sector. The last decade has seen an remarkable increase in the resource and time that is devoted to identifying and developing humanitarian leaders; however, the evidence from the ALNAP’s State of the Humanitarian System of rules report (William Harvey et al. 2009), and from elsewhere, suggests that Ineffective leadership is still a major problem to effective humanitarian activeness that is prevailing. The intention of the study is to develop a better apprehension of what effective leadership looks like, to identify the determinants of good leadership and ways in which it can be fostered.
While history is widely viewed as simply the documentation of change throughout time, few times and places have seen more dramatic changes in such a wide influx of areas than Britain in the 1600 's. Not only with the scientific advancements but also with diet, clothing, economy and many others. But perhaps the most prevalent changes were within realm of government. In 1600, the concept of Divine Right of Kings was the most fashionable form of rule. But by 1700, a strong military, and a new more democratic government with checks and balances between the executive (king) and legislative (Parliament) branches had appeared in England, leading the way for modern democracies.
Dependent Technology There are several issues in society today, but there is one that is seen as the greatest achievement while at the same time becoming a slow and ongoing problem. Technology is one of the world’s greatest feats and has come a long way into a digital era in which a vast majority of the population in the United States base their lives in every respect. One area in particular has the unfortunate result of this ongoing situation where the nation has become far too dependent on electronic or computer based technology to survive. Education in the last decade alone has seen a dramatic increase in the use of everything digital because it is both useful and supposedly needed. The use of electronic-computer based technology is both a good thing and a bad thing, which inadvertently causes issues in society’s education because there is circumstantial evidence to suggest that society is reliant on technology.
"Engineering" small word, big concept. In the era of globalization and advancement of modern technology, engineering plays a very significant role in our lives more than ever before. From the navigation by sun and stars practised by the early mariners, Marco Polo and Columbus, to the sophisticated Global Positioning System used by electronic devices, we are witnessing the tremendous changes in technological advancement that has occurred over the past two centuries. Barack Obama once said, “Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself.
Up till 20th century, the scientists were dabbling in the design and efficiency of computers and as a result, computers became smaller by size, faster by speed and cost-effective as well. The generations of the computer help us to understand how computers evolved from a calculating device to present day artificial intelligent systems. First Generation computers are usually described as starting with the delivery of commercial computer. The main feature of this generation
It has been ruling the industry of media, since. But, unfortunately, every ruler can’t rule forever. It’s the twenty first century and Technology is on the rise, it has started changing the perspectives of people by giving them the entire world in the palm of their hands. The basic purpose of conducting this research is to see if the print media is gradually being replaced by the E-media. 1.3
CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION A. Background Writing has been with us for several thousand years, and nowadays is more important than ever. Having spread steadily over the centuries from clay tablets to computer chips, it is poised for further dramatic advances. Although hundreds of millions of people are still unable to read and write, humanity relies on writing to an unprecedented extent. It is quite possible that, today, more communication takes place in the written than in the oral mode.
In new social, after war order, education and learning started to affect society on multiple levels: social, political, sociological, etc. The predominant form of work in industrial age was manual labor (Charles & Reigeluth, 2012), so the main pedagogical goals were related to basic literacy (reading, writing, arithmetic) while all others sorts of knowledge were neglected. Today we are living in the digital age (Resnick, 2002),(J. S. Brown, 2000) which requires completely different skills. From information age towards digital age changes are mutually dependent. An industry is no longer key economic element, a number of “white collars” exceeded the number of “blue collars” (Huitt, 1999, 2007).
The historical backdrop of computer development often refers to the various generations of computing devices and can be traced back to the 19th century. The term generation was recognized as the fluctuation of advances in equipment and technology. According to Understanding Computers – Today and Tomorrow, “The basic ideas of computing and calculating are very old, going back thousands of years. However, the computer in the form in which it is recognized today is a fairly recent invention” (12). These vital changes have ensued in incredibly smaller and more powerful and efficient technological devices.
Therefore, we can notice how the implementation of standard English passed through many stages for codification and prescriptivism that ranged from fourteenth century till nineteenth. Of course, there were many factors and reasons for such processing in English to be a standard language. (Seargeant & Swann, 2012, 78-80-92) Some reasons behind dictionaries ' commissioning are the decline of Latin and French during the fourteen century. Besides that English became the medium of education and science, therefore
