Business Cards in Japan - Japan/Culture - Travel - Travel Tips

businesscards in Japan are exchanged like germs, that is to say they are very common. It's not just business men that use them, they are used in any setting that calls for introductions, college students for example. The reason why they're so popular is because they save a lot much time in building relationships...

What is it with business cards in Japan?

Japan is perhaps the most famous for business cards, as it's the only place in the world that has turned the simple concept of passing information, into a methodical practice requiring rehearsal time.

But of course, if you don't see beyond the surface you're missing what Japan is really about (and if you've got this far I'm sure you are filled with curiosity about these things!)

"People often have 2 or 3 different cards for varied purposes, such as numerous business interests or personal introductions".

What does the practice represent?

* Respect - respect for your partner

* Representation - presenting yourself well

* Rapport - building a strong relationship from the start

Did Japan invent business cards?

Japan has made this custom their own but they didn't invent the business card...

"Little bit of history..."

That honour goes to China. Or more to the point, a 15th century Imperial Eunuch; Minister of the Chinese Empire. Known as visiting cards they were used to write general notes and messages on by the wealthy.

Next, they became popular in 17th century France, where they were used for the same purpose. Most notably by Louis XIV, the 'Sun' King.

Finally, at around the same time, they were used in London where they evolved to advertise local businesses. There we have it, the history of the business card.

"Early business cards had small maps printed on the back because buildings weren't individually addressed."

They were not introduced to Japan until the latter half of the 19th century, when Japan began to westernise.

"Business cards play a big role in Japanese relationship building"

As well as using business cards when introducing yourself to people, it's best to establish a relationship through mutual friends. It's that universal saying, 'it's not what you know, it's who you know' and that message rings just as true here.

'Gold plated and heavy weight gloss business cards aren't guranteed to get you that business deal. But there's no second chance to make a good first impression...'

The Japanese have a gift for adopting elements of foreign culture and making it their own, the business card is a perfect example. Not only does it give you an opportunity to introduce yourself; in Japan it can control everything from -

* Seating order * Language * Who your peers are * Even who pays for a meal!

Basically, these little cards have a lot of pulling power in Japan...

Should I take my own business card?

With the important role these cards play in Japan you could be forgiven for wondering if you should take your own business cards. Networking can be quite difficult in Japan without them so the simple answer is... YES!

* Even if you're not on business

(And while we're there)

* Even if you've never had business cards

Personal cards -

So if you have business cards with your personal email, great, take those. If you don't have business cards, create personal cards! All you need is your name and email on them, and any other information you'd like to add. Here are some reasons why it's a good idea:

* With the pace of life now, it's so practical * It's awkward to ask for someone's number, or even to ask if they want yours. Then of course you've got to find a piece of paper and a pen to jot down your number onto * You can design your card based on a hobby on yours. Golf, football, martial arts... Perfect for getting people to know you (and remember you) * If you even get to the point of writing your number or email down, people lose scraps of paper like it's going out of fashion. I know, I've had that happen to me! With an attractive, tidy business card it'll slip nicely into someone's wallet along with credit/debit cards and most importantly, won't be lost! * The Japanese are shy by comparison to the West. It's a lot more harmonious and casual to simply hand over a card with your details, during a general introduction/conversation

There are countless websites that allow you to create your own business cards. For those that are interested, here are a couple of reputable web-sites so you can start designing your own unique cards:

Why have business cards become such a big part of Japanese Culture?

The Japanese have always placed importance on class, rank and seniority. Even though it's not stressed as much as it has been in the past, it's deeply ingrained into the Japanese mentality. During the Edo period (1603-1868) position in society would have been determined by visual cues such as clothes. Often these clothes had to be worn by law to indicate your place in society. But with the shift into the Meiji period (1868-1912) business cards gained in popularity for introduction.

Before the Meiji Period (1868 - 1912) position in society would have been known visibly by aspects such as clothes. But with the end of the Edo Period in 1868 (1603-1868) the importance of class still played a prominent part in Japanese Culture, as it does today.

Enter the Business card; they were introduced in the 1870s at the beginning of the Meiji period. As more and more ranks were introduced to Japans society the need to identify a person's position become ever more important. Etiquette was largely affected by someone's level in regard to yourself; it was difficult to network if you couldn't first determine their social standing.

In keeping with the Japanese nature, the process of exchanging business cards was developed to an art.

Here is a video on how to exchange business cards. Exchanging business cards is a very visual aspect of Japanese culture, watching how it's done is the best way to familiarise yourself.

Tips!

* Estimate how many cards you are going to take then double it, if you want to network at all well you'll be burning through them fast.

* By printing cards with English on one side and Japanese on the other you're paying the highest complement, and increasing your chances of meeting again.

Inter-Relationships Between Law And Culture - Law - Intellectual Property

Law regulates human behavior, whereas culture is a result of the aggregation of unregulated human behavior. Although seemingly different, these two parallels intersect often. Law demands that it should be studied and practiced by the book and there should be no human element in passing judgments. This is how the story of the interaction between law and culture starts.

There are many sociologists who have studied this relationship. This discipline is commonly known as the sociology of law. Study on the Law-Society relationship was pioneered by Max Weber and mile Durkheim. Jurists, such as Leon Petrazycki, Eugen Ehrlich and Georges Gurvitch, also attempted to develop theories on this relationship between law and society. Law and culture have evolved together as well as independently.

As a society and its culture become increasingly complex, it is observed by eminent sociologist Emile Durkheim that the authorities of civil law gradually encroach on criminal and penal laws. A reflection of culture can be seen in the legal system. Law has been subject to modifications by elements of society and culture, such as:

1. Gender and sexuality

2. Family

3. Violence

4. Progress in science, technology and medicine

5. Migration

Outside the academic world, the area of intersecting areas of interest of law and culture has resulted in widespread curiosity in the working mechanism of the law and the consequences in the event that the gun of law misfires. These topics can be understood through discussions with your local and global peers.

If you look around, you will find that law has been influenced at many levels by different constituents of culture. Law and culture have been simultaneously represented in films, media and the arts, and with time this has left an imprint of culture on the legal system. Various sit-coms, movies and books have plots revolving around the procedures and failings of the law.

If you want to quench your thirst for a discourse on law and culture, the effects and relationship with society, there is one platform where you can find answers to your queries and exchange ideas. To carry forward this discussion, visit the Forum on Law, Culture and Society at ForumOnLawCultureAndSociety.org. This is a free platform for the exchange of ideas and thoughts.

Knowing Your Employment Law - Society

Employment law is a complicated area for all businesses. Unless you happen to be working at a law firm the chances are that not many people within your firm will have a great grasp of the English legal system and the laws that affect each and every one of your employees. Whilst some nay indeed have a basic grasp, understanding such requirements as minimum wage and the correct amount of holiday allowance, employment law goes much further than that.

One of the main problem areas is the laws that will affect human resources. There are many regulations that need to be followed, from what to do if you need to change a contract to how to correctly dismiss someone. However, most managers these days already feel pushed to the limit with their day-to-day tasks, and simply dont have the time to be tracking the latest legal changes. However, in todays culture this can be a very dangerous game to play, as more and more people are suing their companies every day.

If you, as a manager, are not sure about the legal rights of both you and your employees, it may be a good idea to seek help and outsource your human resources management. This can mean you are sure that problems are dealt with in the correct way, and the right laws are followed. It may also free up some time for you to concentrate on other tasks within your business.

From the right to flexible learning to the appropriate checks you must undertake when employing someone new, the laws surrounding employment are a maze. Spending some time researching what you should and shouldnt do may take some time, but if it saves your business from coming under scrutiny from the courts for a breach of a law then it is time well spent.Employment law is a complicated area for all businesses.

Skirt - News - Business News

HistorySkirts have been worn by men and women from many cultures, such as the lungi, kanga and sarong worn in South Asia and Southeast Asia, and the kilt worn in Scotland.The earliest known culture to have females wear clothing resembling miniskirts were the Duan Qun Miao, which literally meant "short skirt Miao" in Chinese. This was in reference to the short miniskirts "that barely cover the buttocks" worn by women of the tribe, and which were "probably shocking" to observers in medieval and early modern times. Skirts in the 19th centuryDuring the nineteenth century the cut of women's dresses in western culture varied more widely than in any other century. Waistlines started just below the bust (the Empire silhouette) and gradually sank to the natural waist. Skirts started fairly narrow and increased dramatically to the hoopskirt and crinoline-supported styles of the 1860s; then fullness was draped and drawn to the back by means of bustles.See also History of Western fash ion: 1795-1820, 1820s, 1830s, 1840s,1850s, 1860s, 1870s, 1880s, 1890sVictorian fashion, Artistic Dress movement, Victorian dress reform.

Robes, which are a type of dress for men, have existed in many cultures, including the Japanese kimono, the Chinese cheongsam, the Arabic thobe, and the African Senegalese kaftan. Robes are also used in some religious orders, such as the cassock in Christianity and various robes and cloaks that may be used in pagan rituals. Examples of men's skirts and skirt like garments from various cultures include:The kilt is a skirt of Gaelic and Celtic history, part of the Scottish national dress in particular, and is worn formally and to a lesser extent informally. Irish and Welsh kilts also exist but are not so much a part of nat ional identity.The foustanella is worn by men in Greece and other parts of the Balkans. By the mid-20th Century, it was relegated to ceremonial use and as period or traditional costume.The gho is a knee-length robe worn by men in Bhutan. They are required to wear it every day as part of national dress.[citation needed]The sarong is a piece of cloth that may be wrapped around the waist to form a skirt-like garment. Sarongs exist in various cultures under various names, including the pareo and lavalava of the Hawaiian islands and Polynesia (Samoa, Tonga, Tahiti, and Fiji), the Indian dhoti and lungi, and the South Indian mundu.In the Western world skirts, dresses and similar garments are considered primarily women's clothing today although historically that was not the case. The wearing of skirts by men in these areas was generally seen as cross-dressing although some fashion designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier have produced skirts for men and kilts are widely accepted in som e situations.

How to Take Good Care of Your In-laws? - Family

Marriage is a method of creating new family. You got to be more responsible and need to take care of your family. But besides taking care of your family, we will also get a responsibility to your in laws. It is not an easy task to fulfill all of your matrimonial duty right after the marriage. But with patience you will learn how to do it.

First of all the parents of your partner needed to be considered. If you are the bride, the family of your husband expects you to help in the household works. In the Indian culture, the newlywed bride usually goes for cooking in a very time after the marriage. The mother of the groom expects her daughter in law to help her in the kitchen as well as other household activities. The father wishes her daughter in law to serve him food and tea timely. On the other hand the parents of the bride wish to get a good response from the son in law in every social event. They want a dutiful son in law who will look after them and always take care of any of their problem. If the parents of the bride are not financially stable they want their son in law to take care of it.

Both of the parents of the bride and the groom expect their in laws respect. They want their daughter in law and son in law follow every social occasion and so they can have a good impression in front of their relatives. They also expect gentle and obedient behavior from their in laws. This kind of gesture is more important in the Indian subcontinent region where there is a strong bond in the family and the bride usually lives with the parents of the groom after the marriage. If the newly married couple does not live with the parents, it is still a traditional ritual that the son in law and the daughter in law show proper respect the parents of each other.

Then comes the other in laws like the brothers and the sisters of the bride and the grooms. The in laws from the husband side usually with their sister in law will take care of them. The bride needs to look after the younger in laws like if they eat or done other daily activities. The older in laws expect her to show proper gesture and look for if they have any problem solvable by her.

In case of groom, the most important activity is financial besides asking how his in laws are doing. In any social occasion, his in laws expect gift from him. He can also give experienced opinion if any of his in laws asked him so. But usually in the Indian culture, the brother in law has nothing much to do except financial help.

We know that someone's inner characteristics can't be determined before marriage. But you can learn many thing if you go through the personal details before the marriage. The matrimony site can help in this. We try to gain as much information as possible of our clients and try to provide the best quality service. You can find much necessary information in about the person you select to marry which will help you to take right decision.

Personal Injury Law and 'Compensation Culture' - Careers - Career Management

In recent times, personal injury law has been criticised from both within and outside the law industry. But like it or not, personal injury law is a niche area that has cemented its importance and prominence in Australian courts and the legal world. Personal injury law deals with injury to the body, mind or emotions and is most commonly used to refer to a type of lawsuit that claims a plaintiff's injury was caused by the negligence of another. Personal injury law has been the subject of much criticism for a few main reasons, most notably for the so-called 'compensation culture' it is believed to have created. Compensation culture refers to a growing belief that one who has experienced or suffered personal injury is able to seek compensation through legal action from someone connected with the injury. As such, personal injury law and compensation culture has made it legally possible and often lucrative to shift the blame or accountability of an injury to someone else. Perso nal injury lawyers have also got swept up in the criticism of this area of the law, often being referred to as 'ambulance chasers' who plant the seed of litigation in injured persons. There is, however, another side to personal injury law, and those interested in personal injury law jobs should not be deterred. Defending those who have been injured at the expense of another person or corporation is also an important piece of the law puzzle.

Lawrence Friedman, an American law professor and expert in American legal history, once said, "Law is a massive vital presence in the United States. It is too important to be left to lawyers". This statement advocates the involvement of society in legal matters and subtly sums up the raison d'tre of the Law and Society movement. This movement, representing an unchallenged relationship between law and culture, was initiated after the Second World War by some sociologists who took a keen interest in the study of law.

The Fusion of Law and Culture

Law cannot be made mutually exclusive of the culture that it operates in. This is because the law of a land is to a large extent defined by the socio-cultural norms and morals. This is the reason why the practice of law varies across countries. This relationship is further strengthened when law becomes interconnected with all aspects of life, from religion to education, medicine, horticulture and other fields.

Do you ever wonder why people feel fascinated by lawyers, judges, intricate legal cases and the judiciary? Why do writers feel the urge to write novels about law? Why do people get mesmerized while reading about lawsuits and legal issues? How do theatre actors transform themselves into subtle and witty attorneys? Because, law has such a strong hold over our society and it is almost impossible to segregate law and culture.

Law and Culture in American Context

American sociologists believe law to be itself a cultural form that is formulated, established and shaped by the society in which it operates. Similarly, the culture of a society is formed and modified by the disciplinary legal forces.Moreover, the popular concept of law has now entered the domain of creative arts and media. Various plots and narratives revolve around legal actions that arouse the interest of the spectators, who by nature are always curious about the world of law. These concocted manifestations have changed the very way in which law operates. Today, law and culture mingle together to determine standards that are to be followed by the inhabitants of a particular society.

Business Cards in Japan - Japan/Culture - Travel - Travel Tips

businesscards in Japan are exchanged like germs, that is to say they are very common. It's not just business men that use them, they are used in any setting that calls for introductions, college students for example. The reason why they're so popular is because they save a lot much time in building relationships...

What is it with business cards in Japan?

Japan is perhaps the most famous for business cards, as it's the only place in the world that has turned the simple concept of passing information, into a methodical practice requiring rehearsal time.

But of course, if you don't see beyond the surface you're missing what Japan is really about (and if you've got this far I'm sure you are filled with curiosity about these things!)

"People often have 2 or 3 different cards for varied purposes, such as numerous business interests or personal introductions".

What does the practice represent?

* Respect - respect for your partner

* Representation - presenting yourself well

* Rapport - building a strong relationship from the start

Did Japan invent business cards?

Japan has made this custom their own but they didn't invent the business card...

"Little bit of history..."

That honour goes to China. Or more to the point, a 15th century Imperial Eunuch; Minister of the Chinese Empire. Known as visiting cards they were used to write general notes and messages on by the wealthy.

Next, they became popular in 17th century France, where they were used for the same purpose. Most notably by Louis XIV, the 'Sun' King.

Finally, at around the same time, they were used in London where they evolved to advertise local businesses. There we have it, the history of the business card.

"Early business cards had small maps printed on the back because buildings weren't individually addressed."

They were not introduced to Japan until the latter half of the 19th century, when Japan began to westernise.

Source: 'SmasHits.com'

"Business cards play a big role in Japanese relationship building"

As well as using business cards when introducing yourself to people, it's best to establish a relationship through mutual friends. It's that universal saying, 'it's not what you know, it's who you know' and that message rings just as true here.

'Gold plated and heavy weight gloss business cards aren't guranteed to get you that business deal. But there's no second chance to make a good first impression...'

The Japanese have a gift for adopting elements of foreign culture and making it their own, the business card is a perfect example. Not only does it give you an opportunity to introduce yourself; in Japan it can control everything from -

* Seating order * Language * Who your peers are * Even who pays for a meal!

Basically, these little cards have a lot of pulling power in Japan...

Should I take my own business card?

With the important role these cards play in Japan you could be forgiven for wondering if you should take your own business cards. Networking can be quite difficult in Japan without them so the simple answer is... YES!

* Even if you're not on business

(And while we're there)

* Even if you've never had business cards

Personal cards -

So if you have business cards with your personal email, great, take those. If you don't have business cards, create personal cards! All you need is your name and email on them, and any other information you'd like to add. Here are some reasons why it's a good idea:

* With the pace of life now, it's so practical * It's awkward to ask for someone's number, or even to ask if they want yours. Then of course you've got to find a piece of paper and a pen to jot down your number onto * You can design your card based on a hobby on yours. Golf, football, martial arts... Perfect for getting people to know you (and remember you) * If you even get to the point of writing your number or email down, people lose scraps of paper like it's going out of fashion. I know, I've had that happen to me! With an attractive, tidy business card it'll slip nicely into someone's wallet along with credit/debit cards and most importantly, won't be lost! * The Japanese are shy by comparison to the West. It's a lot more harmonious and casual to simply hand over a card with your details, during a general introduction/conversation

There are countless websites that allow you to create your own business cards. For those that are interested, here are a couple of reputable web-sites so you can start designing your own unique cards:

Fast Cards - U.K

PsPrint - U.S

Why have business cards become such a big part of Japanese Culture?

The Japanese have always placed importance on class, rank and seniority. Even though it's not stressed as much as it has been in the past, it's deeply ingrained into the Japanese mentality. During the Edo period (1603-1868) position in society would have been determined by visual cues such as clothes. Often these clothes had to be worn by law to indicate your place in society. But with the shift into the Meiji period (1868-1912) business cards gained in popularity for introduction.

Before the Meiji Period (1868 - 1912) position in society would have been known visibly by aspects such as clothes. But with the end of the Edo Period in 1868 (1603-1868) the importance of class still played a prominent part in Japanese Culture, as it does today.

Enter the Business card; they were introduced in the 1870s at the beginning of the Meiji period. As more and more ranks were introduced to Japans society the need to identify a person's position become ever more important. Etiquette was largely affected by someone's level in regard to yourself; it was difficult to network if you couldn't first determine their social standing.

In keeping with the Japanese nature, the process of exchanging business cards was developed to an art.

Here is a video on how to exchange business cards. Exchanging business cards is a very visual aspect of Japanese culture, watching how it's done is the best way to familiarise yourself.

Tips!

* Estimate how many cards you are going to take then double it, if you want to network at all well you'll be burning through them fast.

* By printing cards with English on one side and Japanese on the other you're paying the highest complement, and increasing your chances of meeting again.

Intern Insights by a Reformed Law Student - Entertainment - Music

"The role of an internship is to replace an empty mind with an open and wiser mind."

Before starting with the experience part of my internships I would like to share a small experience that fully pertains to the internship activity. I spoke to a well-established and prominent advocate in the Delhi HC about the internships. He took a little stride backwards into his simple and amazing past. He told me that the kind of hysteria and emergency that is created by the law students and graduates now a days is mind boggling and saddening. He was not against the interships as a hub of knowledge and practical training but he was against the internship culture that is followed by the students like a religion in the law colleges. This is nothing but just the easy contacts getting a nudge from the known of a student or their kin for getting good company. This is an incomprehensible perception and belief for that practicing and experiences advocate to say the least. The advocate said that the first, second and the third year of the college are the most valuable. One mus t understand the basics of the profession and side by side one must enjoy the freedom and the volatility of the college life.

In initial years of studying law while committing to internships one just works for the firm as an educated clerk and office boy and a lucky few get the chunk of the good work and assignments. Students don't realize how they are exploited and mentally arrested by the firm to get to work up their petty things. Students are made to lower the burden of a firm as the firms have started enjoying their efforts and time to the fullest in lieu of the must awaited certificate. What makes everyone happy is the immediate comparison of firms after coming back to the college from vacations. The sudden expression of utmost pride on the face of a student when he tells others about the market value of the firm he/she interned in the past month or the seniority of the advocate under whom he/she got a chance to serve and handling of one of the most exclusive and sensational cases. You just come back after mindlessly serving the big firms and corporations and as an exception to the same if y ou carry a promising potential of if you are a kin of some big shot you get the attention of the firm and a good work load with satisfactory content on your shoulders.

Interning in the top notch and established firms just gives you a sense of pride but interning in a small but progressive firm makes you explore the world of law better. For me an internship is the manifestation of an innate choice/preference to put one's tender and novice self to practical practice either with a corporate law firm, a private corporation, a government organization, an NGO or a practicing advocate to polish and structure one's developing attitude and overall knowledge so as to get a meticulous, comprehensive and a holistic view of the professional conduct related to a discipline one has chosen. It is highly benefiting and must be taken up after a year and a half of studying in the college. Starting off early can suppress the innocence of the college life.

Today, I am in fourth year and I have 6 certificates in hand, 5 of corporate law firms and 1 of a supreme court advocate, that are having my name and work experience on them and after having discussed a few things with the seniors at the workplaces who provided me with a smattering of changes in the nature of internships. For securing an internship position in one of the most sought after and premier law firms in India one has to, or rather let me just say, must exploit his/her personal contacts to stay in the race for securing internship seats, as apart from a few old and orthodox law firms that are genuinely interested in having a sight of your aptitude and C.V, others just pick up your documents and put it alongside a few other documents that have turned archaic for them.

Most of the law firms provide a decent opportunity for both litigation matters and corporate assistance. The decision and onus is on a law student to choose terse the two and work on a particular subject showing prominent results. But one thing is crystal clear, a student of law can't get an idea about the part of legal discipline he/she wants to pursue until and unless a student tries his hand at various indispensible and crucial subjects of law. Having a word of discern from the seniors and working on various matters of variable nature provide a student a guiding light with lucid paths. Confusion becomes unavoidable and imminent when you have to choose a particular subject form the labyrinth of paths/law subjects. Read books and commentaries with updated expertise to get a birds eye view of the profession and then choose a subject that's going to earn you your bread and butter. What I have observed is that a few firms prefer smart and brisk working interns with a clinch of subtleness as the very profession demands the same while others prefer interns who firmly follow some principles in their life and produce satisfactory work.

An internship is not only a practical practice that you do to prepare yourself and get an insight of the professional life related to a particular discipline but alongside the latter it also affects your overall personality and puts the variable facets of your personality to a genuine test. Here are a few imperative points that I observed and concluded upon when I completed my last internship.

Period of an Internship (In a corporate law firm as well as in a court)The permissible period of an internship in a law firm is generally 4 weeks but taking an exception some firms provide internship for even a month and beyond. It is totally on the discretion of the H.R department of a law firm or the advocate to grant the period of internship to a law student. But, nonetheless, one can always solicit the concerned authority to provide the desired period of internship as depending upon your vacations. But one hard truth is that it is firstly very difficult to get the coveted internship opportunity in a celebrated corporate law firm and secondly it is even more difficult to get an extension on the time period allotted to you. Bigger the corporation lesser are the chances of securing and internship period that one desires as such law firms get inundated by a plethora of internship applications coming in and to oblige a considerable lot they need running vacancies. But if o ne succeeds in making a positive impression on the concerned authorities and people in the firm recognize your productivity, they might consider extending your internship duration by themselves. So hard work pays in the pre-professional days too. A four week internship is an ideal period in which one gets enough time to learn and show sincere productivity. Anything under 4 weeks is just a sheer obligation that a firm shows towards the source who got you through and you don't even get to showcase you true disposition.

Relation with fellow interns Maintaining a good and professionally healthy relationship with the fellow interns gives you an opportunity to make some new friends and make a professionally motivated social circle. Wherever I have interned I tried my best to build a cordial relation with every fellow intern. I got so much to learn form all the students form various reputed colleges and some of the interns are still in contact and I really don't know when they became my good friends. One who thinks of his/her colleagues as competitors develops a bitter attitude and resorts to unfriendly gestures that can result in you getting alienated form the crowd.

Outstation StudentsThe national capital, the financial capital and the I.T capital i.e Delhi, Mumbai and Bangaluru respectively are the three places that generally attract law students form various colleges/universities across the nation. The sole and most convincing reason behind this limited choice is that these three places have some of the most distinguished and top notch law houses in the country and these places are comparatively sophisticated in terms of infrastructure and professionally well equipped. Students travel in large numbers to Mumbai and Delhi form other states to gain a useful practical experience during their vacations or otherwise. Getting a suitable accommodation in close proximity to the place of internship sometimes becomes a pain in the neck. One must be proactive in arranging the accommodation as it becomes difficult to scout for one unless you have some relative staying around. Staying and interning in some other part of the country is not easy at all in monetary terms and sometimes gets too monotonous. One can't expect to lead a frugal life staying away form home.

StipendA law student works unconditionally and dedicatedly to honor the delegated tasks to satisfy his hunger for the precious practical knowledge either in a firm or with a practicing advocate. When we choose to intern somewhere we are not only aiming to create a good reputation, learn practical skills and get the coveted certificate but we also are serving the employer in regard to the client work. We work judiciously and expeditiously towards the client work which also involves several associates working on the latter but the direct benefits are enjoyed by the partner who charges the client hefty amounts and keeps a good part of the earnings. An intern also becomes a, small but considerable, part of the remuneration earned by the law firms. Firms with some intact professional ethics and appreciative attitude pay their interns some amount (sometimes too meager) to show conspicuous gratitude towards their genuine endeavors. But one should never crave hard for such materi al things as it affects the overall persona as a human. Be thankful to the employer and show some modesty and respect his work culture (you can also express the same in lucid words to impress the employer.)

Good Firms & Bad FirmsWithin the first two days itself you get to know that what kind of a firm you have taken up internship in. Sometimes your high or even simple expectations from the workplace get brutally murdered and most of the times you find an ideal professional working space with a flow of unprecedented intellectuality around you. I have interned in both the types. It becomes very difficult to leave a firm in both the cases. If a firm is good you feel like gaining more knowledge and staying in the prolific environment for a relatively longer period and if a firm treats you badly or where the work culture is utterly grim and distorted you feel like running away but you get a punch of sheer obligation on your face and you have to stay there until the pre-decided period gets over. If you don't want to be somewhere owing to the sincerely unfavorable, poor work culture and execrable administration, you should go with the rational thinking and leave the place and expla in action to the person who got you through with earnest heart.

One firm that I found highly professional, versatile and worth interning in is AMSS (Amarchand Mangaldas Suresh & Shroff). With a fantastic organization, a well developed infrastructure, promising associates and with literally every single amenity provided, this firm is a top-notch association with some of the best personalities. This is one such firm where is ample work for students (depending upon the subjects of law they choose) and respectful environment gives it a glorious look altogether.

Don't get too analytical about everything and try to endure a few things that are negligible.

"Being an advocate is a grand and glorious feeling, you give them a grand and they feel glorious"

Google six main battlefield comprehensive attack - Business - Small Business

On this topic, I have seen many, many related analysis, one of the mainstream is that, respected Facebook because it caught people's a basic needs, is the contact/communication, and to meet the requirements of the service to convenient operation of the place on the Internet. In Google, it to technology, and always be worship criticism don't understand social, do the products is a tool, the kind of, but with cold, user experience is good, but from the design purpose, it only know the use of user habit, but it was like a lack of understanding of human nature, so it in a social product always sent a recruit chess. The claim it's rough, but also some truth really don't understand Google social and doing nothing his name chance?

I. Facebook is part of the advantages and limitations

Someone says that, Facebook is redefined the social, this right, but a more easy to accept the explanation is: Facebook service makes people once want, but can't do some social way possible. In essence, it is still tools, with leading tool, and it's leading to make it become attached to an almost revolutionary spirit symbol.

But Facebook is huge lead must mean that it will represent the people of the social demand? Certainly not so absolutely... Facebook is the biggest ace, most people think, built in the new social tools on the Internet, there is a sufficient: a real name, in the two parallel homogeneous on social networks, there won't be much different, he put his behavior of social nets concentrated in one place to have easy access to many. But Linkedin is how matter? It alive?

In fact, much more Linkedin not like a social networking site, as it represents one of the other social needs. That's right, in other words, this proved a personal social circle of a very complex, his social demand also has a lot of different layer, various social tools is there a sense. The existing Facebook put it all flat, with almost all the social relationship alike. At this point, the user does not have how many options, accept people accept this, and do not accept man not in use this tool, avoid the offline world in some he naturally will contact, will do. Zuckerberg may don't care, he even think not of real name is not sincere, but apparently the real world, not everyone thinks so. The rapid rise of the Facebook is how much real gave worship, but ironically, it also on this platform hit the imprint of the brand, limited read: privacy.

Even if it again big, above the DuoRen again, also gathered never represent a user of all the social world. It reflects users willing to show to the world is that part of the personality, behavior, be fond of. Of course the truth is, not a tool to represent a user of all the social world, but to advertisers, it can cover range is always the bigger the better, and can get the sample is always the more abundant information users, the better. But Facebook is now represents the percentage? It is very difficult to define you, because it is the eldest brother, said even the only boss. Advertisers just think they actually have no choose it. Now Google understand that? Of course, this is not white PPT to understand the writing, it was considered to Google Me-a Google's social networking site-and write, but now, write the great god has quit the PPT to Facebook, the legendary Google Me but have no news. For the great god, it actually quit was probably a wise choice, but to Google, i t give up to try to build a social ne

tworking site such as Facebook is also a wise choice, because it couldn't catch up.

So it choose to change a way. And then, it introduced a Google + 1.

II. The countermeasures of Google: the small start to do

People use social networking service purpose only limited to the surface of interaction between words/behavior? Of course not, line the main power to the people of the world association of this is one of the exchange of information and ascension (including information here ordinary cognition, emotion/mind, professional knowledge DuoGe), the principles established in line, and also because of the convenience of Internet and strengthened. So Google from here on in human emotional level since interaction has been greatly behind them, and this can't get by on Facebook is now pushing an Internet service, so take a step from their old field to start--

Google + 1 is a gadgets, now seems not many people in use, but also for continuously. But like Google + 1 almost is Google use of existing advantage into social networking field the best way to do that. Search of course is Google the core business, the most main source of income, but if most of the service to say Google around the search started to do its core business is the moat, it would be too look down upon this company's eyes. Search originally represents the information, and the entrance portal are now to the social web site migration. This means that most people think of the social relationship based on information pushing more convenient and save Labour also more worthy of trust. So news giants are favor Facebook and begin to Google horizontal, this also is taken for granted. Google has missed a first, and it is this response on the Facebook supply information field: Facebook is active push meet people try to advertisers and the new demand, it is far better to buy , it brings convenience, price, quali

ty and even stimulate out some originally didn't buy of discovery; But always, everyone will some demand is not on this door to door delivery range, they still have to rely on your own initiative, if the search in the search process, their social contacts can be as in that way "on Facebook to provide" clues and suggested that the better of course--this is Google + 1 from this, the meaning of the vastness of the still and still is in our hands search market to begin to restore the social cities. It prompted a search of the demand in Google establishes own Profile, get the Google account as the Internet the habit of pass. Search in the future is Google will still probably one of the core business, only the definition of the search will have changed.

Google the short term probably won't set up a web site that Facebook is, in the long run, such a interface may still be conveniently (probably is Google launched Profile, but it is more as a integration tools, or rather a contain personal social information and the external world information comprehensive information database management tool, where social relations is a kind of weak ties. Because, if Google's idea can be carried out smoothly and accept, so in the future, probably through Google's a little plug-ins, people's address book social behavior in any of the Internet can be a corner happened.

III. The concept of social service decided to form difference

Let me the subtotal two in the Internet service concept differences: Google habitual way is, find a user may go every place do every thing, and then according to shop around on the Internet to distribute its service, and the order of the Facebook is just the opposite, it all users pull it on the platform of the, and then see what they need gave what. In essence, Google is keeping free-roaming backyard, Facebook is. Relatively speaking, Google is open, as always, the Internet so big, the customers have information needs, and Google the user to them where you want to go; And Facebook, and so is relatively closed, even if it's open platform of fame, also don't change it emphasis external infinite broad information through the social relationship filter and then in their territory to the essence of users active push; In other words, Google aim at doing a circle around the spread of the infinite, and Facebook are become an internal density is more and more big pack of.

In the short term, the practice of Facebook to make it taste too much blood, it focused on the page of the of all kinds of rich information, all kinds of interesting and useful application, so it's more and more users, valuations are more and more high, advertisers distribution of the budget is more and more popular when it. But in the long run, Google's open also has a lot of advantages:

First, the more real. As mentioned above, the individual social needs are levels of, have the purpose of points and the points, personal, and so on. A relatively decentralized Internet usage patterns can help spread the risk of circles privacy leak, allows the user to worry less, so they behave more close to them in the original features of partial, this just really called sincere. For advertisers, it this way through the Internet users can only cover and collection is relatively more pass complete user behavior, they put nature also more accurate. (thus add sentence infrastructures, Google is likely to sit in on Greplin time to buy. I would prefer they would have in the plans to release a similar tool, if Facebook is not obstruct words...... but Facebook is almost certainly would block, so, Greplin user group of expansion and then buy it to become a better choice. However, this kind of service of the future of the good.)

Second, the more save worry. Facebook would in a multi-level social demand in the interface of the realization of the meet is not impossible, is easily put it was concise beauty level off, it is mostly Zuckerberg has not been the reason for doing this. Although users get their privacy protection consciousness is the need, but too complex option set is easy to give up and to ignore. And in the wider open world, to do so, will be easier, Google may even need not do, natural have attached to their innovators to help them solve the problem.

Third, the more efficient. If need to spend the same time, you will get you the books on the shelf classification, or a place making a group? You are like the book for you to go find to read, party or the day of the title of your bookshelf all see it again? Facebook is now may represent a more convenient more trusted information acquisition way, but think carefully, as a social network Facebook users in the rising inflation, the network approach to information will Europe, Facebook has more and more in efforts by interactive history/read the means such as filtering Newsfeed information, but this algorithm based on the second filtering is can satisfy user's information needs? People need social, also need to private space; People through the demand of information, have layers, and not necessarily and its social relationship (or, rather, the performance on Facebook social relationship) hook. Facebook currently is completely based on the social information way, just push scre ening the most superficial that satis

fy the demand, although this cake layer the biggest, but it also or behind many. Only open, just have the hope, and all-round comprehensive as possible, only to do any case of high efficiency.

So, probably in Google opinion, it in real long-term social fields of the enemy, not the entire web site Facebook, but the ability to included Internet users on Facebook site outside of the behavior of the Facebook connect. The so-called social struggle, is essentially a pass for the Internet, Google the present backward, but the difference is not the irreversible.

Facebook consideration, someday, Newsfeed are now no longer attractive, then it how to revision? Under the reference Flipboard might be a good idea. And although does Google temporarily push don't make a serious social services used in, but it has started to make social concept blend in with it every popular other services. Whole unification's advantage lies in the convenient, special ZhuanBan advantage lies in depth. Now in most people, the Internet was only as a line of life, just the proportion to size added that vary from person to person, so most people without much strict requirements on depth. But in the future, when people life completely moved to based on the Internet all kinds of platform, the depth of the service after up is must be satisfied and realize.

human Resource Management (part 3) - Business - Human Resources

4.5 OverviewBearing the above stated in mind, it is apparent that the literature on compensation not only highlights the extent to which its judicious use can constructively contribute to the maximisation of organisational efficiency but, significantly, the degree to which it can influence positive developments in organisational culture. Compensation leads to the maximisation of employee motivation levels and, accordingly, to the enhancement of both productivity and innovation. When compensation schemes are institutionalised they become an integral part of the organisations culture and accordingly, create a motivational, productive and committed organisational culture which, in turn, enhances efficiency. It is, thus, that within the matrix of HR tools, practices and strategies, compensation assumes a singular importance.5 ConclusionThe argument presented in the above and which was supported throughout with academic literature and empirical evidence on compensation and othe r HR practices, has established one incontrovertible fact: HR practices positively contribute to organisational efficiency and induce such transformations in organisational culture as which ensure the maintenance of efficiency and effectiveness through a motivated and committed workforce. Within the context of the stated, compensation is important but it cannot attain the desired-for changes alone. Instead, all of the mentioned practices, alongside compensation, are the predicators of the identified transformations and the determinants of organisational efficiency and effectiveness.

Great Italian Food Comes From the Heart With All the Love and Attention That a Mother Gives Her Child - Food

Think of the famous Italian foods that have made their way into the menus of the rest of the world. Pasta, cappuccino, olive oil, pizza, tiramisu, pesto the list goes on; Italian food culture is a prominent feature of Western society. Italian risotto became another typical dish of the Italian food. Italian salami, prosciutto and mortadella are the main Italian cold cuts.

To be precise the average Italian meal is three hours long during which the people consume their food in ten courses. Since the courses are so many in numbers they are usually small in quantity so as to be able to get a taste of everything. A restaurant meal may involve up to four courses: an antipasto, primo (first course), secondo (second course), and dessert.

Italian food goes beyond a good pasta dish. Over the years the Italians have developed their own culture surrounding the eating of their food. Just like there is a special art to preparing top class Italian food there is the art of eating Italian food. It is fascinating to witness the culture that has developed around Italian food over the years.

When the Italians sit down to eat, they literally forget about the world and are in no hurry whatsoever to gobble down their food and get back to work. The actual sitting down and eating process on an Italian dinner table is long, relaxed and spread over a couple of hours. This is why we find the Italians to be very fond of spending long hours on the table and meal times expanding over the span of a couple of hours. The food is served in large platters which make it easy to reach but as a guest you ought to be careful not to stuff yourself up on the first few servings because there is always more to come on an Italian dinner table. Another prevalent tradition in Italian homes is that each guest brings with himself and interesting homemade dish as well which adds to the already overwhelming menu.

The only two beverages that you see on most Italian tables are water and wine. Italians love their wine and serve it freely with both lunch and dinner. They are smart, real, and fun-loving in their approach to wine. Italian wine costs less than water in most restaurants. Food and wine hold an important place in the heart of Italians and such Italian food culture easily rubs off on the tourist.

Italian pastry is another Italian traditional food, as it is part of the Italian daily life. Italian honey that comes from Sardinia has a special taste. Italian dessert recipes that make your mouth waters like tiramisu, panna cotta. And finally we get to Italian coffee which is a typical product that is spread worldwide. Everybody knows about espresso (remember not to say expresso) and cappuccino (from the word or hood) but Italians rarely drink cappuccino after 10 am, and never after a meal.

But remember Living Italian means not letting the little stuff get you down.

Buon Appetito!

I call this the occupied person's workout, since it addresses the power, cardio and flexibility all wrapped into a single exercise session. Check with along with your physician ahead of beginning this or every other fitness exercise.What You get With Fitness Boot Camp-- Range.-- Exciting.-- Energizing.-- Builds powerful teams.-- Incorporates firm, family and existence core values.-- Complete-body, encompassing power, muscle endurance, flexibility and cardio.-- Could be started anytime.-- No strict work out routine.-- Dynamic, constantly centered on progress.-- Could be performed indoors and/or outdoors.-- For guys, women, teenagers and children.-- For pre-beginners, newbies, intermediates and advanced.-- For youthful and outdated.This work out is for the firm seeking to get an innovative way of obtaining its staff in form even though strengthening team spirit, increasing productivity and lowering absenteeism.The goal of implementing fitness boot camp cells/teams would be to actively get to the position of finding workers, club members, members of the family and pals in form and construct strong, cohesive teams.Workplace Benefits of Fitness Boot Camp-- Little to no price.-- Use present employee and management structure to organize.-- Enhancement of corporate culture.-- Healthier and happier workers.-- Enhanced staff spirit.-- Decreased illnesses.-- Diminished loss of work time.-- Diminished injuries.-- Increased productivity and efficiency.-- Weight-loss and excess weight management.-- Dietary guidance.-- Anxiety relief and pressure management.-- Enhanced communication.Appoint Staff LeadersAppoint group leaders for every cell, which will be made up of around 6 to twenty workers. That is a company-wide strategy, from senior management all the way down to front-line workers. Any member of management can basically step in and join the exercise with any of your teams to advertise their relationships with workers even though functioning on their very own fitness and demonstrating, by illustration, how critical this is. Ma nagement participation is really a non-threatening way for senior- and mid-level management to join in on what exactly is presented as critical fun with particular emphasis on enjoyable and teambuilding.Decide on how best to prepare your original team cells and appoint group leaders or coordinators (one for every cell). Then, assign a single person to assistance all staff coordinators of all of the cells and also to track the programs. That particular person may very well be the wellness coordinator, supervisor, supervisor or some other worker. That person need to previously have a heightened degree of enthusiasm for fitness and have a desire to assist other folks.Diverse Fitness Levels Train TogetherAll fitness levels train with each other. Have all workers indicator a waiver for the plan. If any members have healthcare problems, these staff would then only perform these exercises which can be permissible by their physician; by way of example, walking but no jogging, no abs function, no squats or lunges as a result of knee harm. Usually a straightforward modification of an workout is doable. People with health-related restrictions would then complete their alternative exercises during the time the rest of the group is performing their (unmodified) training; or they're going to simply modify the team's exercise to a secure variety of motion suitable to their health-related limitation.Organize Fitness CellsThose staff who work collectively on the normal basis really should be organized being an a part of the same fitness cell. You'll be able to organize the cells by division or cross-departmental. Have managers or friends come with each other; combine several management levels. Rearrange the combine of staff every single six months, in case you want. Whether your business is customer support, sales, banking, law office workers, fire and rescue, hospital staff, law enforcement, school, college or university, or modest company with a handful of wo rkers, boot camp fitness cells are proper to suit your needs.Indoors or OutdoorsAnother fascinating factor of fitness boot camp is these workouts may be performed anyplace, whether indoors or outside. Hold it interesting by changing exercise location, exactly where possible, and try to find possibilities to include your environment into your exercise. As an example, park benches are excellent for performing dips, along with the total group can wrap their resistance bands - also referred to as exercise tubes - about a tree for any group upper-body workout.FlexibleYou select a time to fit your schedule. Regardless of whether it is 10, 20, thirty or 60 minutes for fitness boot camp, it all adds up to an accumulative wellness advantage. I strongly advocate at least twice a week, as soon as a week at a minimal, being an a part of a corporate system with emphasis that the employees operate out four to six occasions per week all advised. If you can not schedule fitness boot camp tw ice a week, routine the frequency that may perform. Allow it to be a part of your corporate culture and your workers will take this into their private fitness routines. There exists a clear connection in between fitness and workplace efficiency.Merge Work out with an Enterprise MeetingCombine a meeting with fitness boot camp. There is no greater strategy to get people inventive juices flowing whilst problem fixing than to engage in hearty training. Begin with an issue to become thought to be or even a difficulty to be solved, and then complete an workout or two. End and examine. Then do it yet again together with the subsequent agenda stage, until eventually all issues and muscle groups have already been addressed. Who says you can't merge perform with satisfaction?Any person Can Do ItThe training is simple, and also the exercises are quite simple and straightforward to perform. The combine of exercises follows the ideas of simplicity and exciting. Technically, that is refer red to as functional teaching. Functional coaching focuses on coaching the system how it is utilized in routines of daily lifestyle.Train the TrainersOnce you have recognized your trainers, they need to become skilled. To put into action this program the trainers will only want a few standard exercises. Start with these basics and, with time, gradually introduce new exercises. The trainers aren't just viewing. They may be performing the exercises with their team members as they guide and encourage them by means of the exercise.Three Basic Principles-- Warm-up. Complete toe raisers to warm up the system.-- Stretch. Stretch every entire body component briefly appropriate soon after exercising it.-- Power and cardio. Alternate involving upper and reduce entire body exercises.This strategy is safe and sound and does not call for significantly training to put into action. Participants are to remain in touch with their bodies and do only what they could do. If they can only comple te a partial motion of an physical exercise, that is certainly acceptable and is also still doing work the muscular tissues. Use the following list of standard exercises to acquire started. You'll discover a description of those exercises in the guide titled Boot Camp Fitness for All Sizes and shapes by Lt. Col. Bob Weinstein, USAR-Ret..Start With These Exercises-- Squats-- Standing crunches-- Standing lunge-- Arms and shoulders stretch-- Triceps and upper back again stretch-- Standing straddle and stretch-- Standing hamstring stretch-- Biceps curls, resistance band-- Shoulder press, resistance band-- Upright row, resistance band-- CrunchesGround Rules for Fitness Boot CampThere are floor principles to follow. These principles are designed to build powerful, supportive teams and group members. Emphasis around the simple strategy with the work out to guarantee progress for all team members, whilst acquiring exciting.SafetyKeep the workouts secure. Request about healthcare res trictions and remind participants to remain in touch with their own bodies. The exercise is built to take the staff from their comfort zone periodically to ensure that fitness progress could be skilled. The comfort zone will differ for each individual. A team member only modifies an exercise for health care factors or due to fatigue degree after which continues to physical exercise that system component.Tend not to enable the query of liability to trigger the plan to become rejected or terminated. The benefits of this fitness system far outweigh any questions of chance or liability. Seek out legal counsel to mitigate any threat. Require all participants to remain in touch with their own bodies and do only what they're able to do.SimplicityAs a team progresses, new exercises could be incorporated into the exercise, periodically changing the routine, area or sequence of exercises. Introducing some thing new keeps it fascinating.FunThe enjoyable element can not be emphasized en ough. The workouts are all performed inside a light, upbeat and optimistic atmosphere with an emphasis on mutual respect and problem for all team members. Humor is an important aspect, provided that it is not demeaning, inappropriate in language, or content. No foul language would be to be utilized by any crew member. Treat the exercise like a sport and have a blast.VarietyVariety is the spice of lifestyle. In addition, assortment is probably the ideas that keeps the work out exciting and truly plays a function in surprising the neurological method into supporting greater fitness progress.Complete Physique WorkoutComplete physique exercise signifies power, cardio and versatility. It also means upper physique, decrease body and abs. Each work out will include all of those in different degrees. This is easy to utilize. Basically spoken, what you may do is jog or walk; end and function a physique aspect; jog or walk; end and operate an entire body part until eventually the comp lete session is full.Are you indoors and can't go outdoors? Be innovative and carry out the exercises while alternating between upper and decrease entire body. You're going to get a cardio exercise as well. Each and every session might have a distinct emphasis. For example, the upper physique may well be emphasized, although the other locations are nevertheless becoming worked. The buy of exercises may be random, as long as there is alternation between upper and lower entire body.Core ValuesThe core values from the firm are to be consciously practiced and illustrated through the workouts. Core values are built to make us better employees and better persons. For instance, the core values from the U.S. Army are loyalty, duty, respect, selfless-service, honor, integrity and individual courage. A clear comprehension of the business core values is surely an essential part of the coaching. Through each instruction session, a specific core value or values ought to be emphasized to discuss. This can be achieved by selecting an proper quote or quotes or possibly an existence or organization scenario or anecdote that best demonstrates the core value.Improve Workplace PerformanceThe practice of core values of the business is quite critical for your long-term accomplishment of your organization and for excellent employer/employee and employee/customer relations.All folks have diverse ability sets and different levels of overall performance. The object of fitness boot camp is always to make all group members experience appreciated and motivated no matter performance levels. That is certainly the top secret to enhancing the efficiency of all.Group members will all have various fitness levels. Some could have stronger upper bodies, some will have greater flexibility, and some may have greater cardio. Every group member focuses on their person fitness progress according to his or her quite personal fitness stage rather than the fitness degree of other group me mbers. All staff members assistance every other in their person quests to enhance. Fitness boot camp just isn't only about bodily strength, it's also about mental power.Mental FortitudeMental fortitude pushes us to enhance and go beyond our existing fitness level. So that you can improve mental fortitude, one hundred percent work is required of all group members. 1 hundred % work means that if a crew member, through the course of an exercise, gets so fatigued the full exercise cannot be performed, then that team member is not going to merely give up, but will modify the exercise to your point of becoming ready to carry on. Without a struggle, there might be no progress. That is wherever the mental fortitude is actually getting strengthened once again as well as the physique. Strengthening of mental fortitude will carry around in to the workplace. That is quite powerful. This keeps the head and physique while in the mode of stating, "Hey, I can do this! I will not end! I won' t quit!" That is what adds the challenge towards the fun.Count Reps Aloud TogetherAll team members will count exercises with repetitions aloud and enthusiastically. The only exceptions are laryngitis and people who can not speak. This works the diaphragm and has an extremely good team-building effect on staff members.
