Coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, letting me go

I just can't look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
Cause I'm Mr Brightside

I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag
Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, letting me go

'Cause I just can't look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies

...founding of a local subsidiary in Tokyo in 1959. Today, Disney is a market leader in home based and theme park entertainment in the Asian market. The firm is currently exploring a production facility in either two of the hub cities of Tokyo and Shanghai. In this paper will review the demographics, culture, political, economic, and applied HR practices in China and Japan. China and Japan are both economic powerhouses with homogenous cultures, with distinct political and economic structures. The Chinese culture has more Confucian ideals that are more collectivist in nature, while the Japanese culture emphasis harmony and saving face communication. The Chinese manipulation of its currency and increasing dissent among workers puts the nation in higher political risk; moreover the Chinese economy is inevitably going to slow down. The Japanese economy has undergone political reforms to upstart a sluggish economy recovering from a decade long recession in the 1990s. The HR practices in China rely on a strong leadership pipeline from its educational facilities and its union that is heavily influenced by the Communist regime, while the Japanese HR practices are characterized by lifetime employment in an increasingly talent gap. Organizational culture is essential to having global leverage in an industry that requires local adaptation. Since Disney is well established in both China and Japan, the cultural affect on strategy is not as significant. Thus, the political......

Happy Being Single

...INFORMATIVE SPEECH 1) How To Be Happy Being Single The life that we are bestowed with is truly a miracle. This precise miracle gets overshadowed with the contradictions that we live with. Contradictions like, the young want to be older and the old want to be young again; the dark want to be fair and the fair want to darken; the short want to be tall and the tall ones have their own problems. And just the same way, the single want to mingle and the ones with partners want to break free. Isn't that complicated enough? Well, let's take a moment and say aloud - "I am single. I am single! I AM SINGLE". Yes. It is not to rub salt on your wounds but for you to embrace it than dread it. Acceptance is the key to great decisions. It is, in fact, very empowering. Look at you. You live your life all by yourself because you are capable of being single and independent. If you still hate your relationship status, take another moment to remember all the things you have dealt with alone. I am single. No, I really am single and everyday I push my limits to achieve something better alone because I can't afford to waste my time waiting for someone who may or may not show up just so I could have the cliché happy ending to my fairytale because Disney says so. No, that is not the end to my life or your life for that matter. Life is living it, not waiting for it to be over. And why on Earth would I ever want to cripple myself to the aid of a person who sees me as nothing more than a baby......

Think of the Economy as Being More Like a Cat Than a Washing Machine

...Rule 1: Think of the economy as being more like a cat than a washing machine. We are victims of the post-Enlightenment view that the world functions like a sophisticated machine, to be understood like a textbook engineering problem and run by wonks. In other words, like a home appliance, not like the human body. If this were so, our institutions would have no self-healing properties and would need someone to run and micromanage them, to protect their safety, because they cannot survive on their own. By contrast, natural or organic systems are antifragile: They need some dose of disorder in order to develop. Deprive your bones of stress and they become brittle. This denial of the antifragility of living or complex systems is the costliest mistake that we have made in modern times. Stifling natural fluctuations masks real problems, causing the explosions to be both delayed and more intense when they do take place. As with the flammable material accumulating on the forest floor in the absence of forest fires, problems hide in the absence of stressors, and the resulting cumulative harm can take on tragic proportions. And yet our economic policy makers have often aimed for maximum stability, even for eradicating the business cycle. "No more boom and bust," as voiced by the U.K. Labor leader Gordon Brown, was the policy pursued by Alan Greenspan in order to "smooth" things out, thus micromanaging us into the current chaos. Mr. Greenspan kept trying to iron out economic......

...Do You Have What It Takes to Be Happy? By Stacey Colino 1.If you add up money, beauty, fame, and admiration, you’ve got the formula for a lifetime of bliss, right? Wrong. The truth is, your financial status, external circumstances, and life events account for no more than 15 percent of your happiness quotient, studies show. What elements do make a difference? Surprisingly simple internal factors such as having healthy self-esteem, a sense of optimism and hope, gratifying relationships, and meaning and purpose in your life have the most influence, according to recent studies on what researchers call “subjective well-being” 2.If that sounds like a tall order, here’s the good news: Even if they don’t come naturally, many of the attitudes and thought patterns that influence happiness can be cultivated, which means you can boost your capacity for happiness today—and in the future. “Studies with twins reveal that happiness is somewhat like a person’s cholesterol level—it’s genetically influenced, but it’s also influenced by some factors that are under our control”, explains David Myers, Ph.D., a social psychologist at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, and author of The Pursuit of Happiness (Harper Collins, 1993). In other words, while your genetically determined temperament has a fairly strong influence on your happiness quotient, you can nudge it upward with the attitudes and approaches you bring to your life. To develop a sunnier disposition, use the simple strategies......

...your life? Well, for me the word happiness means, being able to live another day and to be surrounded by the people you love and care for. In other words, being surrounded by family is happiness. In this essay, I am going to talk about two of the many things that make me feel happy and what I think it means to be happy. The first thing that makes me happy is being surrounded by the people you love and care for, which is family. Being closer to your family makes me happy. It is always good to be around those that love you more often than being apart from them. My family almost always gets together on Sundays. We go to my grandmother’s house and spend the day with each other. I find this to be relaxing and I feel that having people that care for each other makes you a happier person. Also, when people have children they should be there for them because they will live a healthier life if their parents are in their life more often. It is also good to notice and acknowledge kids when they accomplish their goals because it will make them and yourself happier than if you just ignore them. Family is also a very important part of one’s life because they will always be there for you until you die. Whereas, a wife or significant other may not be there for you until you die or in times of need. This is because they can always leave even after years and years of being with one another. The second thing that makes me feel happy is being able to live and enjoying life. I do not really......

Happy

...One essential standard for living is being able to be happy. Happiness can be found in many different forms. It can be found with the purchasing of inanimate objects that better our living styles or it can be found with someone else that you associate with. The latter is the more imperative of the designs of happiness. In order to be truly happy you need to be able to understand that everything is good within your own life and that you are able to be happy with the people that are in your life and the people that influence how you live your daily life. Happiness is all of the good that someone experiences combined into one emotion. This emotion can, and usually does, bring out the best in people. For someone to be happy they need to know that everything that has happened in their past has happened for a reason and that it has happened in order for them to become a better person. Not only does it make them a better person but it also makes them realize how good they have it or can possibly have it. Although things might be hard to deal with at the moment, people need to realize that they will be able to learn from their experiences and that they will learn to take the good from them all. In the end, the hard times will help people strive for happiness. Happiness isn't free. You have to earn it and work to keep it....

...argument that went as follows: Nature exhibits an order of observable lawful regularities and necessities; given these lawful regularities in nature, mankind must exercise knowledge & wisdom to avail itself of the advantages of these regularities; knowledge entails the existence of universal truths; & the universal (unchanging & eternal) nature of such truths (particularly the mathematical truths) requires for their existence an eternal knower or God. God serves as the ground for natural rights (to those things and regularities in nature without which mankind could not exist and therefore had a natural right to use for its flourishing) or to quote Jefferson “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” among which he included being “created equal” and “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” John Locke, a predecessor and major influence on Jefferson, originally listed them as “life, liberty and property;” these are the basic human rights. Thus, natural law is the basis of human rights. Note that human rights are not to be confused with “civil rights.” The latter are granted by other men acting in the capacity of a civil authority (government) & based on what is supposedly the “better judgment” of those who govern us. Teleological Virtue Ethics (Aristotle’s Version): In the Aristotelian theory, we are seeking to answer the question “What is the Good Life?” To answer this question, we must seek that which is Good In Itself and not mere relative......

...as half full because now I have a chance to finally write my first blog post. I'll share a few tips from my heart on being and staying happy in Jesus. * "Are any among you in trouble? They should pray..." - James 5:13 Pray; my joy begins and ends in God and I can confidently say that the joy of the Lord is truly my strength. You cannot be happy while you insist on carrying your own burdens. The Bible says that we cast our cares on the Lord. Now the way to do this is by prayer. I do not expect to be happy while my God is angry at me. So be it burdens of sin -by the way disobedience to God will snuff the joy out of you cause joy is from the Holy Spirit and He can get grieved by us when we do wrong!-, worry, anxiety, depression, name it! I will lay it at His feet and His cross and take on His yoke. I realized that if I truly want to be happy all the days of my life, then I should seek diligently to be full of all that God is. * ------------------------------------------------- "...Are any among you happy? They should sing praises." ------------------------------------------------- James 5:13 Be grateful; My heart "glows" when I appreciate someone. And it does so when am appreciated as well. Being grateful helps you appreciate and be content with what you have. A sincere thank you to God and people around you will go a long way in helping you stay happy about what you already have. When is the last time you said thank you? Take your time with God today, give thanks......

...voluntary) for US employees from September 2005 to August 2006, indicates that the overall turnover rates in the United States has steadily increased. This increase directly affected the industry by influencing total company expenditures based on the direct impact of turnover costs on and the overall profitability of an organization (nobscot). Further analysis of these ratios will allow identification of the industries being affected by turnover, the reasons behind this, overall costs of the turnover, and detailed recommendations to reduce these activities by developing creative staffing models that will induce and promote retention. Problem Every organization is built on a foundation of the jobs within the organization and the people that perform those jobs. The jobs are a constant within each company; while the employees are performing specific duties we must realize that when they leave, the jobs remain the same and the people must be replaced. Different rates of turnover may exist depending on the type of job being performed and because of this it is important that HR professionals have a good understanding of potential turnover based on this as well as other factors. It is also vital that an understanding of the costs associated with turnover is also well known. Topical Area Turnover rates and ratios will vary by company and also by industry. Companies with jobs that are held by only one person may have lower turnover rates than those that have jobs that are held......
