How To Maintain Office Moral

Posted on Posted in society

When you have grueling office work to do, it can seem almost impossible to get through the day. When you work in an office, especially if you have the kind of work that seems like it never ends, and has no actual substance to you, you may find that you may need a bit of a break, or change of pace. This can have a ton of positive effects, not only on your life, but also on the work that you’re doing for your job. Studies have shown that workers that work in a better environment, work well with the peers, and take time for themselves generally do better work and more work. Having a good environment where you feel less stressed can really make it where people feel more comfortable to ask questions and make the environment far more livable.

The first way that you should go about making your time at work better, and even at home and other places in your life is to change your attitude. Although this suggestion may seem like a small one at first, it can actually make a big difference for you and your peers. Although this low cost way can completely change your work life, it’s actually a really great way to make people feel better and to lessen work stress. Make friends at work and crack jokes, while making the atmosphere light, even when it seems like you’re burdened under a ton of stress. Not only will this help you bond with your coworkers, but you’ll feel a lot better about going to work each and everyday when you have people in the experience with you.

Another great idea for reducing work stress is to hang out with coworkers after work. You  may not want to press any boundaries, but inviting the office to a dinner party is a fantastic way to make new friends and get to know the people you work with. It’s also a great way to make your work better. When you feel more comfortable with your coworkers, you, and them, are far more likely to give each other information that may help you do your job better, which is great for the whole office. Bad at cooking? Never fear. You can still make a home cooked meal for your co workers, which signals that you care and that you want to make an impression, without putting too much of a strain on your life. Check out Hello Fresh and grab a family meal to be delivered to your door for just such an occasion. This is great for busy bodies that love great food.

You should also take time for yourself when it comes to reducing work stress and pressures, and talk it out with the people you work with. Take a vacation, and actually relax, leaving the phone away from you when it comes to work. You should think about relaxing as self-medication almost so that you work harder and do better in …

Endangered World Citizenship ?

We the world citizens are breathing in a very much insecure society with the increasing dimensions of newer techniques of creating nuisance, terror and ever increasing distrust among citizens world over. Bombs in the bus, train, cinema theatre, open market areas, aero planes and also lying on the garbage tins are only few exhibits of a few peoples’ hatred towards the progressive nations; innocent lives are becoming items of rampage. These inhuman acts are the outcome of free breeding corruption of excessively selfish, narrowly greedy and anti social persons widely distributed throughout the globe. Our irresponsible political leadership has fathered and faithfully nurtured these values for quite sometime, well above four decades. Even In India, we are now only preachers of peace but have always supported criminals and masked their inhuman acts as part and parcel of democracy. We were theoretically known as symbols of tolerance but as a national character now, we display complaints and dissatisfaction on every issue; we are said to believe in “forget and forgive”, but our instinct of taking revenge never calms down. This dualism of Indian practices has been most vividly viable for more than Fifty years; though said to be prevalent in all periods of human civilization. And this dualism or even pluralism of split personalities is rampant world over among all politicians, everywhere thus a common man is becoming an easy victim. This is principally on account of ever increasing economy at any and every cost and this global feature is the motive dogma of modern progress. To be honest in approach, economic progress is friendly to ethical values only in the beginning but soon becomes a bookish conjecture.

The new format of the society is non palatable to millions of simple, honest and humble citizens who believe in brotherhood, love to all human beings and duty as the foremost human religion: those who believe in second religion is an option of thoughts and way of life !!. I have counted heart beats of such people spread world over by way of personal talk, involving and sharing mutual respect.

Exhibition of hatred in the form of terrorism is the latest edition of quelling human values, feelings and ambitions of being a human being. Variable techniques of generating terror are continuously questioning our technological progress dependent-perversions. And the bitter truth is that we can never achieve perfect, clean and honest society. Not because such a society never existed anywhere but because, biologically, this is improbable, impossible and definitely imaginative. Perverts are always born, socially transformed /made, nurtured, and have always been “domesticated” by power.
I intend to enlighten on all these points on the basis of my own studies accumulated as by products of my principal focus in areas of Genetics, focusing principally on reproduction, survival strategies and adaptive behavior in plants and animals including humans …

Eat Healthy Food And You Can Live Healthy

Posted on Posted in society

A central concern of the society in which we live is health. People are getting more and more conscious about living a healthy life. Eating healthy food is of course a great way to improve your health and stay healthy. A common misconception among people is that healthy food refers to bland and boring food that is widely available as a natural food co-op. However, healthy food is actually what you eat every day, only it is prepared in a slightly different way.

Healthy food as well as healthy eating habits is pleasant for the palate. Closer the food is to its natural state; the healthier it is for you. You can improve your eating habits by cutting down on packaged food. This kind of food, although convenient, is filled with preservatives and artificial ingredients. Healthy food can be convenient too, once you get into the habit of preparing them.

It is very easy and inexpensive to prepare and eat healthy food. Here is an example: grill some lean hamburger patties until they are well cooked. Once this is done, place the patties on whole grain all natural hamburger buns. The burgers can be served with a tossed salad as well as a side of steamed green beans. Follow it up by serving fresh fruit for dessert. This entire meal can be prepared within half an hour and includes a variety of healthy food.

Grilling lean meat, fish, or chicken does not take a long time. While the meat cooks, you can easily toss up a salad of greens and vegetables. You can also round out the meal by using frozen or fresh vegetables. You can bring in variety into your meals by using healthy foods that you have never tasted before. Be sure to check the produce section of the local grocer, which will be stocked with a whole range of exotic fruits and vegetables. Some produce sections also offer recipes on how to cook the vegetables with which you are not familiar. This is a great way to introduce your children to healthy foods. You can also experiment with fresh herbs that can add new flavors to your meal.

Preparing healthy food on a regular basis will help you to make fast health nutrition meals. If you get the time, try using healthy food in exotic recipes. Healthy food can be prepared before hand and frozen for later use. When you prepare your own frozen food, you can be absolutely sure that there are no artificial additives or preservatives.

Encourage your children to get involved in the preparation of healthy foods. This will create a time that you can share with them. Eating healthy food does not cost you much of your time or money and most certainly, it is a better option for you.…

The problems of each category requires specialized attention as each category has got its own issues, own problems and hence there cannot be any common policy prescription for all.

Even the problems of colleges and universities working with the same type of students are widely different, a fact which have been overlooked by UGC and NAAC in a most unfortunate manner. The eminent persons at top level of …

South African crime statistics have shown that alcoholism and numerous drug abuse have been affiliated the alarming charge of crime and violence in South Africa.

There has nonetheless been no distinct homework that regarding many victimization in a neighborhood sample of adolescents in South Africa.

Numerous vital variables truly need to be targeted when assessing the brings about of violence.

Another characteristic is the impact of close friends who are delinquent and antisocial and starting to be uncovered to these a group boosts the danger of an adolescent finding victimized.

Adolescents who spend a wonderful deal of time with delinquent buddies have a higher chance of at the moment currently being victimized than their pals with out possessing this type of close close friends taking into consideration that they will extra frequently be in nearer proximity to motivated perpetrators, with out the powerful guardianship by mom and dad and pals.

What is your attitude towards your work?

Posted on Posted in society

What is your attitude towards your work? The position you take just might mean the difference between fulfillment and misery! This is the sixth article in a ten-part series, based on Craig Nathanson’s trademark “Ten P” model for vocational happiness. By Craig Nathanson The Vocational Coach™ What is your attitude towards your work? This is not a trivial question. On a recent trip to teach and speak in Russia I discovered that one’s culture can influence one’s position or attitude about their work. For example, in Russia, the pairing of work and joy doesn’t compute. The general feeling there is that one’s work is something that must be done whether one likes it or not. In North America, while there is a growing trend to choose more carefully one’s work, there still are remarkable similar attitudes about work. Mid-life is the chance to re-adjust your position about your work Mid-life is the perfect time to change or even recreate a new attitude about your work. It’s time to discard old non-useful ideas of the past and replace them with more useful ideas. This is not easy I should know. Now almost 4 years removed from corporate America, I have had many days and nights wondering what am I doing. Trading a six figure income managing other people in their jobs to now spending my days typing articles like this? Trying to give people new ideas how to discover and do what they love? Spending hour after hour in my private practice discussing with clients the same fears, concerns and yet eager anticipation that I had in recreating one’s work life. This isn’t a real job I would think. What am I doing while all those OTHER people commute to their real jobs. Work and Joy do fit together

Having an attitude about your work that you must not only enjoy but love what you do is not just reserved for the privileged in our society. Sure it may be harder to get started for some but just because we all have different starting lines doesn’t mean we can’t join the race to an authentic work life Are you too comfortable in your job? Up to age 40 or so, many of us have settled into a comfortable pattern about our work. We don’t necessarily love it or even like it, but it pays the bills and helps build our egos. Mid-life is a time of attitude adjustment You can live a more authentic life by starting to change your position about your work. Is what you do JUST a job to retire from? Or do you want to do activities each and every day which you love and never have to stop until you die? The only people who retire are people who don’t love what they do. Are you one of them? You can live a more authentic life but the changes reside in you. If you don’t change your position and direction of your work, then who will? …

Role Of Identity In The Australian Criminal Justice System

Posted on Posted in government, law, society


The are certain linkages that one can make with regard to the criminal justice system and the role identity plays within this system (where age, gender, sexual orientation or social class denote identity). The first link is that one’s identity has a direct effect on the access to resources of power. Also, it is plausible to assume that identity determines one’s punishments and rewards in the criminal justice system. The second aspect about identity is that it highly affects the nature of crime control dispatched upon various groups. Thirdly, these differences in crime control have an overall effect of changing the way of life of respective identities both within and without the criminal justice system. Lastly, it can be assumed that the nature of crime control can reinforce some of the inherent inequalities within society. (Andersen and Patricia, 1998)

The Australian criminal justice systems has grown by leaps and bounds over the past decades. This is because certain blatant cases of discrimination such as discrimination against gender and race have reduced dramatically. However, some institutionalised systems of discrimination still form part of the Australian criminal justice system. Specific social classes, races, sexual orientation receive fairer treatments than others. The essay shall examine the complexities of these identities with regard to the criminal justice system.

How sexual orientation is handled within the Australian criminal justice system

The criminal justice system is perhaps one of the most prominent areas of the Australian society that depicts negative sentiments to gays or lesbians. Statistics conducted on

how social class affects administration of justice by the Gay Men and Lesbians Against Discrimination (GLAD) in Victoria found that approximately eighteen percent of the male  respondents had ever experienced some form of harassment from law enforcement officers. It also found that police had harassed twelve percent of the female participants. Therefore, police officers had harassed thirty percent of the one thousand participants at one time in their lives. This is an alarming rate especially considering the fact that incidences of police harassment among the general public are at a much lower rate. (Baired et al, 1994)

The nature of response to gay related crimes also depicts discrimination. In the year 1999, a survey conducted by the Gay Men Community Action in South Australia found that a whooping forty four percent of gay/lesbian victims never contacted the police when they had been victims of hate crime. The same research also found that forty nine percent of the respondents would not report their cases to the police if the crime under consideration involved sexual issues. The same survey also found that seventy nine percent of the participants (who were all gay/lesbians) felt that police officers had a negative attitude towards homosexuals. These perceptions were not just founded on baseless allegations; it was found that twenty three percent of the homosexuals who had reported their cases to the police received homophobic reactions from them. As if that was not enough, these victims asserted that the same homophobic behaviour was …
