Are you interested in the people who inhabited America before the Europeans came? Well if you are then this is where you can learn about the Oneida Indian tribe. They are a group of Indians that lived in what is now central New York, Oneida and Madison counties. Now OneidaÃ¢â¬â¢s first appearing was sometime in the 1400Ã¢â¬â¢s, also Oneida means standing rock. They are also one of the 5 founding Iroquois Confederacy and played a huge American Revolution. Now as you can see the OneidaÃ¢â¬â¢s are a very interesting culture, now here is some more about them. Now a huge part of the OneidaÃ¢â¬â¢s history involves the Revolutionary War, sure they are still around but they have remained pretty neutral since the war. One of the major battleÃ¢â¬â¢s that they participated in was the Battle of Oriskany. The Battle of Oriskany was part of the Saratoga Campaign which was a plan for the British to take over the Hudson River. The leader of this campaign was Gen. John Burgoyne and he lead 8,000 men. But at the end, the campaign was a fail which lead to an American and Oneida win and a British loss. Now that is when the...

Introduction In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue. Thats the one date everyone remembers, the date in virtually every school childs history textbook. But, they leave out pretty much everything about Columbus and his exploration of the New World. Its the part many people have yet to learn about. For years, Columbus has been presented to us as a hero. In 1934, President Roosevelt even gave Columbus his own holiday. To this day, we celebrate his discovery of America. What is found in history textbooks now, have seemed to show another side of Christopher Columbus, a side that they wouldnt dare teach in elementary school. Its the rest of Columbus tale of discovery. This paper will show you that Christopher ColumbusÃ¢â¬ ¦show more contentÃ¢â¬ ¦The Indians taught them how to grow food and use the land to survive. Columbus and his men would trade a lot with the Indians and they all lived happily ever after. Thats pretty much where our textbook stopped. I have never learned anything else about Columbus until now. There is so much that my third grade teacher left out and didnt explain. REASONS FOR HIM NOT BEEN A HERO Columbus gets a lot of credit for discovering land that already had people living on it, a land that has already been encountered by other people way before Columbus was even born. In 70,000 to 12,000 B.C. Siberia explorers sailed to Alaska. In 10,000-600 B.C., Siberians also went to Canada and the state we now call New Mexico. A little more recently the Vikings in 1000-1350 came from Greenland and Iceland. They traveled to Labrado, Baffin Land, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Cape Cod and further south. Around 1311 and 1460 explorers from West Africa came across to Haiti, Panama, and Brazil (Loewen 48). These were only a few of the many encounters of the Americas. A result of these explorations was the establishment of Indian villages and the life they began to lead. The fact that Columbus didnt actually discover America isnt the idea that is most disturbing when considering misleading history that children are taught. It is the information that was kept from us while younger that now should be revealed, since we are at the age that we can comprehend and

When it comes to comparing Doaism and Mahayana Buddhism very few similarities exist. Although both religions are practice based, opposed to religions based on faith, the ultimate goal of each religion are vastly different. In Daoism it is believed that the spirit is eternal after death while In Mahayana Buddhism we see that there is an end to the cycle of life, death, and rebirth. However, there is one similarity in both that is incredibly important to the practice of both religions. This similarity is the concept of emptiness. By observing the proper practices of Bodhisatvvas in Buddhism and the ideal ruler in Daoism we can see how both religions have a very similar view on the importance of emptiness, and also how they differ. In the Daoist text the Tao Teh Ching, there is mention of the idea of an empty bowl. This concept is very important and can be applied to many aspects of Daoist practice. When thinking of a bowl we understand it as something that is to be filled. How ever, as it is referred to in the Tao Teh Ching it is the empty space inside the bowl that gives it purpose. Metaphorically the bowl is a representation of our mind. If we fill our mind and in turn close it off to any new understanding we our limiting our potential. One of the most important concepts in Daoism is Wei Wu Wei, or, action without action. Like water bending and moving through a stream it is believed that people should act accordingly to nature not challenging or trying to act

TechnologyÃ¢â¬â¢s Impact on Communication With new communication technology being introduced almost daily, the classical definition of how we communicate must constantly be redefined. Conversations now exist in a myriad of formats, most of which have only been around for the past 20 years. Faceable, Twitter, and various other current forms of social media now influence how we communicate. We will write a custom essay sample on Commessay or any similar topic only for you Order Now Modern technology offers a sterile virtual environment that lacks physical dimensions such as space and time. Modern immunization has progressed so much since the nineteenth century; we now question what Is real human interaction? Medal constantly evolves, which makes studying It difficult. Mass media greatly effects how we perceive other cultures, communities, and ourselves. The Invention of the telegraph, telephone, and radio transformed society In the 1 9th century. The Invention of the Internet changed how humans communicate forever. Unlike the others the Internet has become interwoven into our lives. The invention of smart phones and other Internet capable mobile devices ensures constant connectivity. We are now connected to Mass Media for the majority of our waking hours. News of earthquakes to wars around the world instantly zaps into our pockets regularly. Media directly influences how we create our own personal identity and how we perceive others. According to Michael Bugged author of Interpersonal Divide, media even shapes how we understand our own social identity. Constant connectivity gives us the freedom to control where we put our attention. People text and go on their emails during meetings. We use Faceable while out with friends. Now we create our own experience editing, deleting, and thus touching our thoughts and Ideas that we share. Faceable and Twitter offer us a perception of reality customized to our individual tastes and views. If we can live our lives only paying attention to what we chose to us will well miss something important? The novel Interpersonal Divide by Michael Bugged takes a critical analysis of how modern forms of technology have eroded our sense of community. Budge]a ask the question, Ã¢â¬Å"If electronic communication keeps us wired to the world. Why, then do so many feel displaced in the global village? Modern communication offers such a did array of conveniences, but distances us from our humanity. E. B White, of The New Yorker 1948: Television hangs on the questionable theory that whatever happens anywhere should be sensed everywhere. If everyone is going to be able to be see everything, In the long run all sights may lose whatever rarity value they once possessed, and It may well turn out that people, being able to see and hear practically everything, will be specially Interested In almost nothing. White 3) Mass media and its 24-hour news coverage perpetuate stories from around the world to its unman condition as portrayed by television. Bugged says overexposure to current forms of media may leave us unsympathetic or uninterested in everything around us. We choose to spend more time with our electronic devices, and not with each other. Children say, Ã¢â¬Å"l love youÃ¢â¬ to there parents through text messages. Bugged b elieves modern forms of communication have not only changed society, but also us as individuals. The Internet offers us a way of customizing our experience in society, giving us the freedom to choose our interactions. He believes that humans seek acceptance and the Internet offers that. Without acceptance, we feel unloved. Without love we feel afraid. Lacking time, space, and form the Internet narrows perception and caters to our desires. Without the sense of community we feel unfulfilled we lose essential interpersonal communication skills. The real and virtually real blend so well that we cannot properly ascertain what is genuine from what is not. With all the technological advancements something as simple as tone cannot be properly communicated through cyberspace. In rigid text conversation often the meaning of what we are trying to say to each other gets lost. Bugged believes cyberspace lacks authenticity, citing that private enterprise controls what we do and see. All technology in its infancy suffers from public ridicule and change. The biggest difference now is that change has happen in such short period of time. The printing press made millions literate, but put copy scribes out of business. The telegraph helped war become more strategic, but made war more violent. The radio made current events current to everyone, but instilled inherent fear into everyone. All these innovations came with great change to how we communicate. Today we can only speculate what negative changes the Internet will bring to society. We know the convenience the Internet brings, but what about the negative impacts? The Internet has changed the nature of entertainment, business, government, stock trading, and much more. 5000 years ago the invention of written language allowed people to communicate, without needing to be face-to-face. Early Mesopotamia would scribe onto walls of caves messages to their counterparts, thus creating the first virtual reality. The printing press of the fifteenth century made it possible for hosannas of people receive the same information at the same time thus creating Mass Media. Telegraphs made direct communication possible at long distances, while telephones and radio let us communicate verbally. These technologies changed how society operated much like the invention of the Internet would in the twentieth century. Rapidly integrating into every facet of our lives the Internet has changed society faster then any of the other forms of media. Cyberspace offers us convenience and control like weÃ¢â¬â¢ve never experienced before. Being able to see your Ovid ones faces when you tell you are getting married, from 500 miles away now seems ordinary. The Internet allows us to get directions to a restaurant, check table availability, and the manager on staff all while brushing our teeth. We drive cars that now require Internet connectivity to function. We say things like Ã¢â¬Å"Google itÃ¢â¬ to prove our points in conversation. We even sleep with our mobile connected devices. People now sit in Social gatherings like Bars and parties in complete silence; we are now together yet alone. Joshua Moneywort, No Sense of place: The evolution of media has creased the significance of physical presence in the experience of people and physically present; one can communicate Ã¢â¬Å"directlyÃ¢â¬â¢ with others without meeting in the same place. As a result, the physical structures that once divided our society into many distinct spatial settings for interaction have been greatly reduced in social significance. Moneywort 2) With technology making virtual direct communication possible, interpersonal communication skills are needed more than ever. Often limiting non-verbal communications like touch, posture, and smell virtual immunization only offers a small percentage of the complexity of a face-to-face conversation. Large companies like Faceable and Apple continuously morph and change how they conduct business. Interpers onal contact is multidimensional; it exists in a specific time and place. Contact is the basic component of community in human relationships. The Internet alters our perception of the world and our place in it. We over indulge in technology isolating ourselves from humanity. As society grows and become more complex so must technology. We must ask the question of when does technology stop and society begin? Bugged says: The transformation of society from the real to the virtually real has been occurring since the nineteenth century, affecting how we perceive others and their cultures, communities, priorities, activities, and whereabouts. Bugged 1) The media offers a glance into other cultures and community virtual reality is not a new concept. What Bugged is trying to say is that now we are becoming saturated with medias influence. Just about every facet of our lives now has some sort of device that offers some sort of prescribed convenience. Modern technology helps control our daily lives to an extent never thought possible. As a result, the way companies conduct their business has changed. New technology usually means a r estructure in the labor force; the difference now is the speed in which it has happened. In 1994 roughly 3 million people, mostly Americans had Internet access, the fugue that increased to 26 million the next year roughly doubling every year after till the year 2000. Companies have downsized and implemented technology to replace its human workers. From automated call centers to online tech support, business has downplayed the importance of interpersonal costumer service. Not only is business lacking in human- to-human interaction, we are too. Small mobile devices like the phone can do everything, even tell you a Joke. Society has evolved quicker in the last 20 years than ever before. Over the past 10 years, studies of mobile communication has shown, those devices in our pockets, are so psychologically powerful that they donÃ¢â¬â¢t only change what we do, they change who we are. Things we do now only a few years ago we would consider odd or strange, now seem familiar. We check our devices first thing the morning, before even saying hello to our loved ones. We have minor anxiety attacks when our phone battery dies. We take short breaks during social periods to check our Faceable and Twitter feeds. We feel it necessary to take pictures and update statuses of every waking minute of our lives. I share therefore I am. Technology has created an alternative society- one that is digital, a society where we can create our own persona and manage our identity. A world where we can control how our peers perceive us. Relationships are complex and varied, the Internet is linear and sterile; can it truly replace face-to-face interaction? We should not rely on Edie and technology to attain enduring relationships, which interactions and today pales in comparison to face-to-face communication. Technology can be the links through which we engage and befriend each other but to establish true relationships we must learn how to balance between the two societies. The classical definition of how we communicate has been redefined. Conversations now exist in a myriad of formats, most of which have only been around for the past 20 years. Current forms of social media now influence how we communicate. Modern technology offers a sterile virtual environment that lacks physical dimensions such as pace and time. Bugged calls attention to the problem that develops when we spend too much time in cyberspace rather than in real society. Constant connectivity gives us the freedom to control where we put our attention. The media and virtual communication shapes how we understand our own social identity. Overexposure to the media may leave unsympathetic or uninterested in everything around us. These days, those devises in our pockets are changing our minds and hearts offering us gratification. One, that we can put our attention wherever we want it to be; two, that e will always be heard; and three, that we will never have to be alone. How to cite Commessay, Essays

Question: Discuss about the Emerging Technologies in Business. Answer: Introduction The following assignment is about the use of technology in the business industries. The business industries have been adopting various technologies because the emerging technologies have catered to the improvement of the industries by making it secure, fast and easily accessible. In this industry the chosen industry is the transportation industry that has been very important over the ages. It has been providing all types of vehicle communication for people for going from one place to another. The use of technology would improve the scenario of providing better service to the daily commuters as they face lot of troubles in this case. The technology chosen here is the RFID technology that helps to track anything. This would surely advance the industry and provide a lot better service to passengers as the authority would be able to track the location of the vehicle using a small chip. The adoption of this RFID technology would enhance DHL transportation industry for betterment. Business Justification for the use of Technology In the past five years the advent of technology has changed a lot in the scenario of the transportation industry (Camacho, Foth Rakotonirainy, 2013). The use of Internet of Things (IOT) has provided the industry with the high integrated Transportation and Warehouse Management Solutions that would connect sensors inside the vehicle (Miorandi et al., 2012). The vehicles that emit poisonous gases from their engines have been using eco-friendly systems that do not emit any gases. This saves a lot of pollution in the environment though. They would get benefits as they do not have to hire new trained employees by paying them higher wages (Konings Vanormelingen, 2015). In this context DHL transportation has been chosen to discuss the matter. It is based in Bonn, Germany. They would use technology to better their customer service and reduce transport costs by a good margin. They could use the Radio-frequency Identification (RFID) i.e. a chip. It will help to track the trucks of DHL Company. They can use this chip in their trucks by fixing it inside. They can keep in track of their tracks where it has been going and if it has delivered the goods at the proper place. It can also be assessed whether their vehicles have faced any accident. They would surely get return on investment from implementing this technology (Phillips, 2012). It will increase their competitive advantage over their rival companies as their vehicles would be more secure than others (Wagner Hollenbeck, 2014). DHL, being a global logistics giant, has taken a firm hold over the perennial issues like the return on investment. They have decided to go for cost effectiveness over cost reduction so that they can arrange growth sustainability. They follow the words Simplify and you will multiply ("DHL | Investor Relations | English", 2017) Besides exploring optimized transport routes and new drive vehicles, they are eyeing on a pollution free country where CO2 emissions can be controlled. They have settled cer tain strategies for that and it will cater to their Go Green mission (Tayefeh, 2016) Their target is to offer the customers a broad range of green products and environment friendly vehicles. They have also fixed strategies to provide their customers with total solutions (Christopher, 2016). They will define the areas of concern, define specified activities, prioritize among the activities, implement them and controlling them for their success. They have invested their attributes in different areas like motorsports, sports, music and arts, fashion and lifestyle. These investments have given them good reputation (Saeidi et al., 2015). The different initiatives taken by them have also placed them above their competitors on the competitive advantage basis. The suppliers will also be benefitted by providing such RFID chips (Sun, 2012). The return on investment factors have proven to be very helpful as they have targeted for cost effectiveness. Future prospects for the technology In future, the technology of RFID can be used to tag every product for delivery so that the organizations managing authorities of the logistics managers can zoom the scanner o get instant and accurate count of their inventory. These details comprises of the accurate details of the products weight and quality information. In future, DHL also use RFID technology by incorporating the manufacturing innovations like fitting of printed sensors, printed batteries and thin-film photovoltaic solar cells (Amendola et al., 2014). In this way, they can print their own RFID technology. Another technology that can be implemented in logistics is to use the RFID tags having high memory at lower costs. The data that is stored in the RFID tags can also be connected with the cloud technology so that larger amount of the transportation details can be stored and manipulated. Zalbide et al. (2014) argues that the concept of barcodes is growing so much that the implementation of RFID is not much popular. However, Zhang et al. (2015) also depicts that but RFID technology offer accurate information that the right goods are available in the right place with zero errors. This improves the efficiency and reliability of the entire chain. However, in future the technology of FMCG (fast moving consumer goods)can also be utilised by the concerned organization. In addition to that, the concept of RFID can be used in other industry like manufacturing industry. RFID is also used in warehouse processes, in tracking and managing of shipping containers and in distribution process. However, I feel that DHL use the technology in every area where they should apply it. Zhang et al. (2015) highlighted one of their technology that is temperature sensing especially for pharmaceutical products delivery. Zalbide et al. (2014) moreover depicts that the RFID tags are also connected so that all the updates can be receives through SMS or e-mail in real-time. Even all the RFID tags are connected with their web portal and thus it allows the organization to offer user-friendly and quick status overview, temperature curve and histogram, tailored analysis functions as per as the requirement of the organization and report and analysing function (Amendola et al., 2014). The two aspects that can be considered as an improvement area are- provision of customer convenience and streamline operations. Costa et al. (2013) explains that RFID provides a streamline solution in global supply chain. This streamline solution can be witnessed through lesser shrinkage of the products and timely delivery of the products. De Mel et al. (2016) on the other hand explains that this timely delivery also enhances the customer satisfaction and convenience. Moreover, since these RFID technologies are programmed and automatic, the probability for human error will never occur. Fan et al. (2014) also explains that barcode requires assistance of a human but RFID technology is fully automatic and performs all the work as per as the programs. Moreover, these programs can be customised and hence more customer satisfaction can be achieved as they will get all their desired specification though the RFID technology. Conclusion In the concluding part, it can be said that all the important things have been discussed as desired. The importance of applying technology in transportation industry has been discussed. It has been found that technology will help the transportation industry will grow and customer convenience could be achieved. The future prospects of using this technology have also been discussed in the course. In this matter, the DHL transport company has been taken as an example and the impacts on this company for using the RFID technology have been used so that the company can achieve good performances in the future times.
