Question #1
Should Phil and Linda ignore the old-timers protests and write the job descriptions as they see fit? Why? Why not? How would you go about resolving the differences?
Answer:
No, Phil & Linda should never ignore the old-timers’ protest. Since its the old–timers who have full knowledge about the tasks, duties & responsibilities they used to perform. Ignoring them may result to turbulence among the workers and they’ll feel cheated hence leading to lower productivity.
Writing job description without the information acquired from old-timers would be like climbing mountain without a guide. Since they know the nature and requirement of the job very well, they must be asked about the information of the job before writing a job description.
To resolve the problem I would have used a questionnaire with both structured as well as open-ended questions. That would have lead to lesser confusion and misinterpretation by Phil & Maybelline. (The Job Information Sheet is given below which consist of both structured and unstructured questions)

Question #2
How would you have conducted the job analysis? What should Phil do now?

Answer:
I would have conducted the job analysis in one of the two ways. Either I would have used questionnaire (with both structured as well as unstructured questions) or the interview method.
In the interview method, after collecting the information, I would further proceeded to get the information reviewed and verified by the immediate supervisor of the interviewee and the interviewee.
Phil should now use the information, which is verified and reviewed by supervisor and worker both, for the training purpose of the new worker. The information consists of task, duties & responsibilities of the workers. When the workers will be trained accordingly they’ll know what to do and how to do, resulting in lesser confusion and time-wastage &…...

Operation Flood

...OPERATION FLOOD The National Dairy Development Board in 1969 designed a dairy development programme to lay the foundation for a viable, self-supportive national dairy industry. The programme sought to link rural milk production to urban milk marketing through dairy cooperatives. In July 1970 with technical assistance from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the programme was launched as Operation Flood (OF). It was the world's biggest dairy development programme which made India, a milk-deficient nation, the largest milk producer in the world, by 1998. It made dairy farming India’s largest self-sustainable rural employment generator. All this was achieved not merely by mass production, but by production by the masses. The Anand pattern experiment at the Kaira District Co-operative Milk Producer’s Union, better known as Amul, a single, cooperative dairy, was the engine behind the success of the programme. Dr. Verghese Kurien was the founder-chairman of NDDB and Tribhuvandas Patel was the chairman at Amul at the time. Dr. Kurien gave the necessary thrust using his professional management skills to the programme, and is recognized as its architect. Dr. Kurien’s Amul experiment in Gujarat soon blossomed into the much larger Operation Flood, spread over 23 states, 170 districts and 90,000 village cooperatives. It changed India from an importer to the world’s largest producer and exporter of milk. Operation Flood......

Flood Assessment

...city with my scientific analysis, conclusions, and provide recommendations concerning potential flood damages. METHOLODOGY The methodology used was to utilize the Recurrence Interval formula (R) = (N+1)/M, to determine the recurrence interval and magnitude of historical floods provided on the Stream Gauge Data of Peak Flood Discharges on Clearwater River in Hazard City. Also, I reviewed the flood insurance map to determine areas of floodplains and I utilized the topographic map of Hazard City to compare with the flood insurance map and to make my own conclusions regarding the geographical areas at most risk. Lastly, I used the discharge-frequency curve data and graph to determine the discharge of a 75-year flood in Hazard City. DATA STREAM GAUGE AND DISCHARGE FREQUENCY CURVE YEAR DISCHARGE M R The data from the Stream Gauge Worksheet helped to prepare the Discharge-Frequency Curve. The Stream Gauge Data worksheet was also useful in determining the magnitude as well as to conclude the recurrence interval of each Peak Flood Discharge. CONCLUSION My scientific assumption based on the data is that areas closest to the Palouse River and Clearwater River will have the most issues with overbank flow, or flooding (Keller, 2008, p. 264). Since the areas of Point Park and Riverside are floodplains, it is hypothetical that those areas would flood the worst. However, the railroad would also be inundated by flooding which would seriously......

One of the largest of its kind, the programme objective was to create a nationwide milk grid. It resulted in making India the largest producer of milk and milk products, and hence is also called the White Revolution of India. It also helped reduce malpractices by milk traders and merchants. This revolution followed the Indian Green Revolution and helped in alleviating poverty and famine levels from their dangerous proportions in India during the era. Introduction Operation Flood has helped dairy farmers, direct their own development, placing control of the resources they create in their own hands. A 'National Milk Grid', links milk producers throughout India with consumers in over 700 towns and cities, reducing seasonal and regional price variations while ensuring that the producer gets a major share of the price consumers pay. The bedrock of Operation Flood has been village milk producers' cooperatives, which......

Flood Cases

...” My opinions and actions on dealing with the flood damage would be first to find out the kind of damage being introduced at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Understanding the types of mold being observed with in these areas will better equip providers to provide the most efficient and effectives care for the flooded area. Another important factor is to know how many people where affected by the flood. Knowing how many people were affected will better provide appropriate medical attention to the people who need the services. I also would need to establish how many people that were maybe injured from the flood and that way I would know what kind of medical attention is needed to assist with treatment medically. Finding the types of mold that has affected the residential area will provide healthcare providers with the knowledge of how the mold will affect the environment and people. When an understanding is grasped of what conditions need to be controlled or the affect that mold will have on the residents it will give healthcare providers a better approach to prevent the types of mold that can do harm to the body. Propose three (3) types of molds that could develop from flood damage and the associated health risks with each type of mold.             Flood water damage can cause many types of mold which in turn create a health risk. There are three types of molds that could develop from flood damage. These molds include allergenic mold,......

Curt Flood

...Lauren Goodman December 5, 2013 Mr.Harvey Curt Flood and the MLB An excellent centerfielder on three pennant-winning St. Louis teams in the 1960s, Curt Flood hit better than .300 six times and won seven Gold Gloves in his 12 seasons with the Cardinals. A productive leadoff and number 2 batter who had at least 200 hits twice, his lifetime batting average was .293. Flood was born on Jan. 18, 1938 in Houston, the youngest of six children of hardworking but poor parents. The family moved to California when Flood was two. By seven, he could outrun other kids in his West Oakland ghetto neighborhood. By nine, he was the catcher for the junior’s Sweet Shop team in a local midget league. Nothing could of stop him from that point forward from pursuing his dreams as a professional baseball player. But his baseball legacy is fated to have little connection with his accomplishments on the field. Flood is best remembered for his courage in challenging the reserve clause, a move as crucial to the economic rights of players as all famous Jackie Robinson who broke the color barrier. He felt that the reserve clause was not unlike slavery. Before free agency existed, sports franchises generally held complete control over individual players. Their contracts contained reserve clauses, which specifically bound them to one team. Players who grew unhappy with their team had little leverage; sometimes they might be released from a contract, but their only real hope was that they might be traded...

Johnstown Flood

...Satyan Basnet History 1302 Book Journal I Johnstown Flood Date: February 18th 2014 Chapter 1: The Sky Was Red After reading the first chapter, I view Johnstown in 1889 as a growing industrial city. Like any other town and cities, the Industrial Revolution had huge effect in its rapid growth. People seemed to be rushing to this town from everywhere. Though the Germans and the Welsh were the first settlers, many others like the Scotch-Irish, Jews and Negroes came along in droves to toil at the town's steel and barbed wire factories. Before the arrival of the canal, Johnstown seemed to be sparsely populated with a rather slow life and the town remained no more than a backwoods trading center. However, with the arrival of the Pennsylvania Mainline canal in 1834 , it became one of the booming town at the heart of Allegheny Mountain Range. After 1834, as the chapter depicts, life in Johnstown seems to start gaining a rapid pace. The nearly doubling of population from 15,000 to 30,000 within ten years time shows how people from all parts of the country were moving into this valley in search of opportunity and prosperity. The image of the town also shows a difference in class. There were wealthy people who lived on the high ground, while the poor workers were crowded in the lowlands. Johnstown then had five-story buildings on Main, up-to-date stores, opera house, a night school, a library, a remarkable number of churches, and several large, handsome houses, most......

Floods: an Archetype

...Drozdik 1 Anna Drozdik Mrs. Chaney English 12 5 December 2011 Floods: An Archetype Every year many people are killed by one of nature’s great powers, floods. Many authors have used floods to depict a certain tone throughout the story. To truly understand this work of nature, one doesn’t have to look any farther than certain works of literature. The archetype of flooding is very prevalent in works such as “Noah and the Flood”, the “Epic of Gilgamesh”, “Deucalion”, and “Tata and Nena”. These literary works evoke a tone of fear, fury, strength, and how delicate life is. The first example of this power and fury comes from the story “Noah and the Flood”. In this story the flood shows the tone of how delicate life is. A good example of this is “All existence on earth was blotted out- man, cattle, creeping things, and birds of the sky;...” (“Noah and the Flood 62). This shows that this specific flood was able to kill anything in its path. Usually a flood kills some living things, but this one was so great that it was able to kill every living thing that existed on earth, thus proving that life is very delicate. Another great literary work, the Epic of Gilgamesh also shows a fine example of what floods are able to do to the world. For instance, the flood in this tale displays how much fear Drozdik 2 can be instilled on people as the flood passes through. “Even the gods were terrified at the flood, they fled to the highest heaven…” (Sandars 30) is a quote that enables...

The Flood of 2008

...include expulsion from Indiana Wesleyan University. The Flood of 2008 June 7, 2008 was a day like no other that Columbus, Indiana residents could recall. Torrential showers inundated the area with 10 inches of rain onto already saturated ground. This event would forever change the lives of hundreds of citizens of this small central Indiana town. The flood caused an estimated $180 million in damage to Bartholomew County homes and businesses, many of them in Columbus (McLaughlin, 2010). This piece details the response efforts of citizens, as well as local, state, and federal agencies. This paper includes the personal account of a law enforcement officer who, working alongside fellow officers, citizens, and business owners, responded to a flash flood that has since been referred to as the hundred year flood. Also included is the recollection of a flood survivor who nearly lost everything he owned. In addition, preventive measures which were in place in the event of such a disaster are evaluated, as are mitigation efforts that are currently coming to fruition. The flooding occurred at such a fast pace there was no time to prepare and there was little, if any, warning for the citizens of Columbus. Even the staff of the Columbus Police Department were unprepared as their building was quickly surrounded by incoming flood waters. In a matter of minutes police cars were literally afloat in the parking area. Flood waters had already swept through residential areas and......

Managing the Flood

...Managing the Flood Disaster The human race thinks it is so far advanced that it can come up with ways to handle the flooding water and minimize the amount of damage caused to the flood area. This essay is going to look at what we are trying to do to cause the flood water to cause less damage when it does flood. First we are going to look at creating green areas to help with the flood. Then we are going to look at what caused the Katrina flood to cause that much damage. Finally we will look at what effect trying to manage a flood could damage. Nature has a way of reclaiming the man-made things that the human race tries to build to protect our cities from nature’s disasters. According to (Fields) the political efforts to rebuild New Orleans after Katrina are still going on today. His article tries to explain the need for “Green Space” in an area that has been devastated by floods. Several different groups of people feel that if some of the low areas of the Katrina flood were turned in to natural green areas and not rebuilt with homes or business that area would help protect the area if another flood happened. Many other feel that the area should be rebuilt and used by the people that were flooded out during the storm. The city of New Orleans is almost entirely in a flood zone and only real way to safely rebuild the city is to bring the level of the city above sea level. That is a task that is almost impossible to accomplish. The politics behind......

Floods

...National Hazards: Floods Francis Lopez Cathedral High School Abstract Floods are very dangerous natural hazards. Every year they cost millions if not billions of dollars in damages, to people everywhere. They affect a lot of people worldwide. Floods can also be caused by a number of events. Snow melts, tropical storms, and dam or levee breaks are just a few of the causes of floods. Floods often cause damage to homes and businesses if they are in the natural flood plains of rivers. While river flood damage can be eliminated by moving away from rivers and other bodies of water, people have traditionally lived and worked by rivers because the land is usually flat and fertile and because rivers provide easy travel and access to commerce and industry. Although you can lessen the chance of floods occurring in your area by moving, floods can still occur everywhere and affect everyone. National Hazards: Floods Floods are one of the most dangerous natural disasters on Earth. Floods have cost humanity millions of dollars in damages and so much more. They are also very fatal. Every year, floods kill 6,753 people. While this may seem like a low number of deaths compared to car crashes or earthquakes but when other affects of floods are seen, Floods are seen as very dangerous disasters. They effect people from every part of the globe, effecting over 96,878,672 people and are caused by many things. In floods that result from snow melts, people in areas that are not close to...

Great Flood

...The Great Flood Everyone has a place where they grew up, where they spent most of their life. Most people call it their hometown. Specifically, the hometown I’m talking about is Fulton, Illinois. Every hometown has a different story of how the town got to where it is today because every town started somewhere. This town started like any normal town, but flooding nearly destroyed it. Families were broken up and separated by the flooding. This brought the town together to build a stronger foundation. A “mountain” had to be built to stop flooding from occurring again. A flood can truly bring out a town’s heritage. This story depicts a series of pictures of what a few struggles can really do to a town and bring out the best from it. Looking at the first photograph, the audience gets a sense that it’s a body of water. This river is the Mississippi River and it separates Illinois and Iowa. Another name for the river is the Big Muddy. It is the largest river in North America. It flows from Minnesota all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. The Mississippi is 2,340 miles from top to the bottom and is truly one of the nation’s most important assets ("Fun Facts - Experience Mississippi River."). It is a dominant feature in the Midwest. It has the fourth largest drainage watershed in the world. The river has a long history as well, and it has touched the lives of many people. The Mississippi River has many uses and purposes like boating and tubing as well as industrial reasons such as,...

The Flood

...BEFORE FLOOD….. Living in a quaint little town of rolling hills, with flowers that flow, like the waves of the ocean across the land in a colourful torrent. A cottage sits up on a hill, looking down on the town and its people, who seem to flow through the street, exchanging words with everyone they meet along the path. Every morning a rooster wakes me awake as I drink fresh cow milk from the nearby farmhouse boosting my energy and fulfilling my voracious appetite. From my little veranda , I can see the children playing in the public parks. Churches that resound with ancient praise. Tree lined walk ways, which lead to a museum that holds every little secrets of its town. A market place makes up the centre, the beating heart, of this hidden away town of mine. A lot of construction and agricultural activities contribute to the hustle-bustle of this town as the town conforms to the fast moving pace of society. New parking lots are being built, restaurants are being upgraded, and talk of a mall buzzes in the ears of the locals. The beautiful river of Wales stretches across the farmland, its waves woven into a intricate pattern of silvery stars as the cold freezing water tickles my feet making me feel numb .Apart from giving grandstand view ,it flora and fauna contributes to the overall provisions of the town. There were many flowers here, many kinds, white, yellow, purple and blue.The perfume of the lilies in the sun permeates the heavy air as it lazily drifts over......

Flood Insurance

...Flood insurance can be a very important insurance to have even if a person does not think they are located in a flood zone. Multiple factors can cause a flood to happen even if a person is not considered to be in a flood plain, such as massive storms. Hurricanes can cause a large spike in the insurance claims paid in a year. The two largest spikes in the past 10 years according to FEMA were in 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit the U.S., and in 2012 when Hurricane Sandy hit. The number of losses paid in 2005 was 213,515 and for 2012 149,808, according to FEMA. As you will see, there are multiple benefits to obtaining flood insurance, the estimated costs of coverage, and who should obtain the insurance. Flood insurance protects homeowners, renters and business owners in the event their home/business sustains damage due to an increase in water levels. Even though a home or business may not be located on the typical flood plain, floods can happen as a result of clogged or outdated drainage systems, heavy rainfall, hurricanes and overtopped levees (FloodSmart.gov, 2015). If a home or business is located in an area that is considered a high-risk for flooding, which is defined as a 1 in 4 chance the home or business will flood at least once during a 30 year loan period, the home/business owner is required to obtain flood insurance (FloodSmart.gov, 2015). In moderate to low risk areas, flood insurance is not required but is recommended (FloodSmart.gov, 2015). Even if a person has......
