...CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1. Introduction Have you ever stopped to think about where your electricity comes from? Nowadays, it is no longer only a question of ‘how much electricity do I want to use? However, this type of question which is ‘what kind of electricity do I want to use?’ is also count. In the case of Malaysia, most of the electricity is generated by burning coal and gas in power stations. These types of activities eventually will give such a negative impact towards the environment such as the critical global warming and climate change. Hence, a green ‘power’ or electricity that is environmentally friendly is needed in order to prevent the Earth from continually dying. So what is green electricity? As stated by Green Electricity Marketplace website, ‘green electricity’' is well defined as electricity that is produced from sources which is eco-friendly and do not cause any negative impacts towards the environment. It is undeniable that every type of electricity generation will have some impact upon the environment, but some sources are much environmentally friendly than others. The greenest energy sources are those which utilise the natural energy flows of the Earth and they are usually known as renewable energy sources as they will never run out. There are various studies were conducted to examined or analysed the green electricity. These kinds of studies, however, almost invariably focus on the conservative variables such as sources, cost and......

Road to Hell

...Advanced Organizational Behaviour Road to Hell     Description   John Baker is the Chief Engineer of the Caribbean Bauxite Company of Barracania in the West Indies, he has been with the company for 23 years, in many different countries. John Baker is being promoted and he needs to prepare his successor, known as Rennalls. Rennalls is a fairly young and new to the company; Baker suspects he has a repressed racial consciousness.  Baker wants to sort this issue out and get to the bottom of it. However, during the interview Rennalls gets offended and decides to put in his resignation.   Diagnosis   Renalls resigned due to the verbiage in the interview by Baker.  Baker offended Rennall’s country and culture. Baker received word from expartriate that Rennall’s was rude. Baker has noticed a difference of actions when Rennalls is involved with Barracanians and Europeans. Baker told Rennalls about the incident and how great it would be if he could get past it. Rennalls immediately denied the claim. Instead of letting it go, Baker decided to give one last shot at getting the point across to Rennalls. Baker said Europeans have had 200 to 300 years experience in the commercial world while the Barracanians had only had 50 years. Baker states, ‘In your case, the situation is different because you and your forebears have only had some 50 or 60 years in this commercial environment’.   Theory   The conflict theory is a great evaluator for this case. The Conflict theory has five......

The Road to Hell Case

...would have. Baker needs to explain him that any personal differences that they could have cannot interfere in the operation of the company. 3. This case illustrates how important is for managers, chiefs, and executives to understand that they must not undervalue the nationalism of the citizens in a host country, such as in this case on the country of Barracania. Avoid this undesirable situation; it is a crucial issue for human resource management in the international environment. Each country has its own culture, values, nationalism, and commercial environment, so these senior managers must learn the different cultures around the world, especially where they are doing their job. If any of these managers are not fully aware of these differences, they could make terrible mistakes. So an important function of human resource management is to train and assess each of these individuals that will be representing the company in a host country. Personal issues should not harm the functions and official duties of these people. It must be understood that perception of race superiority must not take into consideration under any circumstance. Mutual respect, collaboration, clarification, and understanding, put into practice in everyday business, are the key for managers to succeed in any position to be assigned.

The Road to Hell Case

...Case 1: Road to Hell Description The “Road to Hell” case is about two professional engineers that came from different backgrounds, have different personalities, but with similar educational background as far as their work goes. Based on the description of the two professionals, John Baker comes across as a white man from either Europe or the Americas and Matthew Rennalls is a minority, presumably black, from a developing country. Diagnosis The problem is that there are apparent cultural differences between the two professionals. This cultural difference can be perceived as racism based on the way these two professionals interact with each other. Europeans and Americans tend to have a lot of pride and can make themselves seem superior to others. This superiority that is portrayed can be looked at as racial. First, John Baker initial approach when he called Matthew Rennalls into his office for a meeting was not welcoming. After offering Matt a cigarette, which is a tactic to bring down his guard, he started off by saying he’s older and more experienced which came across as if he’s looking down on Matthew. Secondly, his choice of words, like when he compared the longevity of his ancestors in the industry to that of Matthew Rennalls’s was very insulting. Again, he came across like he was better and more superior to Matthew because his ancestors have been in the industry for some 200 to 300 years compared to 50 to 60 years that Matthew’s ancestors have been in the......

The Road to Hell

...Building an Enjoyable Workplace --Case of “The Road to Hell” What’s happened? The case “The Road to Hell” is a story of two individuals with different backgrounds and points of view having different interpretations of an interview. John Baker is a successful western chief engineer of the Barracania’s branch of a multinational company. He is an English expatriate, and had served his 23 years with Continental Ore in many different places which made him quite confident in understanding a regional staff’s psychology and knowing exactly how to get along with locals. On the other hand, Rennalls is an assistant engineer and one of the brightest Barracanian prospects on the staff of Caribbean Bauxite. He graduated with honors from London University and he is also the son of the minister of finance and economic planning, which made him especially sensitive to political and racial issues involving relations between his culture and western influence. Through the interview, Baker tried to solve a complaint that he has received from Mr. Jackson – one of the European employees who reported that Rennalls had been rude toward him. While the misinterpretation occurs during their communication process and finally the interview ended up in a disaster. What cause the disaster? The primary cause of the problem, in my opinion, is that John compared the Barracanians experience to the European experience. In the case he mentioned that, “My ancestors have all......

The Hell Debate

...THE HELL DEBATE A Paper Presented to Professor Beauchamp of Liberty University Lynchburg, VA BIBL 350 By Gordon C. Wilson December 13, 2012 INTRODUCTION In this paper, I will give a brief overview of the nature of hell, the classical view and the annihilationist view. For the last decade, there has been a significant debate surrounding this very topic within evangelical circle. It is hard to understand how God can let his children be punished in hell, being he is an all-loving God and creator. However, John 3:36 makes it clear for all of us. (He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him)(Dake, Finis).” The Bible teaches that God loves you so much that the Creator of this universe (Jesus Christ) came to "taste death" for every man. Jesus wasn't just some baby for a manger scene. He is God come in the flesh to destroy the power of death and hell--He holds the keys, people! If you say yes to Jesus, hell won't be your final destination. If you say no to Jesus, the lake of fire will be your eternal home. There is no getting out and no comfort--it's everlasting. Regardless of whether you believe it or not, hell exists and the Bible says that it is never full. I've heard folks say that hell is not mentioned in the Bible or that hell is just the grave. Well, let's take a look at what the Authorized King James Bible says. Here are a few scriptures that deal with......

Version of Hell

...Adam Chitarath Humanities Word Count 582 My Own Little Hell If given the opportunity to create my own vision of hell, my version would be based on the seven deadly sins. Each sin would have its own structure of punishment. If a person were to commit several sins, the last sin committed by that person would be the punishment for that individual. At each gate of the sins, there sits a judge that is in the form of whoever that individual loved most in their life and that judge will decide on that person’s life events leading up to where they committed their last sin. The portal will send the individual to their punishment, that will last 2500 years until their soul can have the opportunity to decide what next life they wish to live. Each sin has a cruel and unusual punishment for that individual which is determined by the last person they saw when the sin was committed. This list of sins that I am about to mention are in no particular order, because in my vision of hell, all sin is created equal. Since the topic is on the great villains of our day, Kim Jong un, if the last sin committed by this villain were to have been wrath that ended with murder. His punishment would be that the person he murdered would be able to murder him over and over again for 2500 years. Another example could be Osama Bin laden, committing Envy. By wanting to be like America so badly, his sin punishment could so happen to be that he peels the skin off his body, layer by layer until it gets to the...

Vast Hell

...Vast Hell “A small town is a vast hell” The quote above describes how badly some people perceive small towns. There could be many reasons behind this strong dislike. One of them could be that small towns are often seen as these tight and small communities where everybody know each other in one way or another and are noisy with too much time on their hands, which resolves in gossip spreading out quickly in town when something happens. But what do you do when you try to move past the gossip, and stumble upon the ugly truth? We see this in the novel “Vast Hell” by author Guillermo Martinez, where the quote is also from. The story takes place in a small village, and resolves around a man that thinks back to the arrival of a nameless young boy in the small-town, that manages to become the talk of town, when rumour starts spreading that he is romantically involved with the wife of one of the two barbers in town, who people call “the French Woman” for unknown reasons. Fuel is added to the fire when the boy and the French Woman disappear, leading half the town to believe they ran off together and the other half to believe that the barber somehow did away with them. Further investigation into the case gives the story a whole different turn, because after digging in the ground to see if the barber had buried them there, they do find dead bodies, but not the bodies of the boy and the French woman, but of a lot of unknown people. The story is told with a first person......

Road to Hell

...Road to Hell An academic essay Today we bear the burden of older generations’ ecological mistakes. The industrialisation brought many machines and factories and since then, technology has progressed enormously both for the good – and bad. The spoiling of the nature does not stop there, however, because we continue in their footsteps, not caring whether or not our grandchildren will ever know a green forest or a sparkly river. “It is not my problem,” some people say, and maybe that is true. But that will change if we do not do something. Many organisations – like Green Peace – work towards living on a better planet and treating the world with care. One might walk outside today and think: ”This looks nice, I do not see a problem with nature as it is”, but that is only true to an extent. Many of the major changes, which happen in nature, are not visible in the western world. For instance, the polar ice caps are melting, which some day may cause the sea levels to rise and flood coastal cities. That is not something we can see when we look out the window, and that makes it hard to relate to. Many rainforests are cut down to grow fields, use the wood for paper and such and to build cities and factories (resulting in extinction of many animal and plant species) but it is not something we see with our own eyes, so it might as well not happen in the first place. Furthermore, flushing soap, chemicals, etc. down the drain, damages the ecosystem because clean water is spoiled –...

Heaven and Hell

...Heaven and Hell Popular, secular opinion seems to conclude either: 1) there is no after-life or 2) everyone and their pets go to heaven. There isn’t much talk about Hell, except to dismiss the possibility of anyone going there. But one historical figure spoke very forcefully about the reality of Hell and the very real possibility of human beings spending eternity there. That person is none other than Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity who became man. God did not dismiss Hell as either non-existent or not a threat. We should follow His example and learn what He taught. Who will go to Heaven? So after the Judgment, one will go to Heaven or Hell. Who goes to Heaven? How can I get there? The simple answer is that the souls of the just who are free of guilt and punishment will go to Heaven. But, we need to break that down a bit. First, let’s be clear on one point: no one can earn their way into Heaven by their good works… no one. Salvation is a free gift from God. In Catholic terminology, the person who enters Heaven is said to have died in a state of sanctifying grace. Protestants sometimes refer to this as the grace of justification. And they are correct. The souls of the just are those who have been justified by grace through faith. So the question is, who has been justified? This is where Catholic and non-Catholic teaching parts ways. We receive the grace of justification, that is, Sanctifying Grace, at our baptism when we are born anew from......

Hell Debate

...Liberty University Hell Debate: The Classical view and The Annihilationist view of Hell RLGN 335 B08 Professor: Wesley Handy By Tami L Moore October 16, 2015 Jesus, suggest that hell is “outer darkness “beyond heaven because heaven is light “where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” He teaches that many will seek to enter heaven but be shut out (Luke 13:22-30), suggesting that there is no way to escape from hell once there. Throughout life, we have heard plenty of talk about Heaven and Hell. Heaven was for the people that believe in doing well unto God as Christian and lived their lives accordingly to God's Commandments. . And Hell was always known as the place where the devil reside and the place that sinners and evil people that resisted God and refuse to accept God into their hearts and lived in sin, and last judgement is served. Heaven and Hell was spoken of in church, but most Pastor spoke on hell lesser than they did heaven. Sinclair Ferguson expresses how the doctrine of hell should influence one’s preaching. “He says preachers should stress God’s righteousness, the sinfulness of sin, and God’s justice in condemning sin. He adds that expositors should affirm that hell is real, that hell is vividly described in the New Testament, and that hell, though prepared for the devil and his angels, is shared by human beings” (Morgan and Peterson). Many Pastors thought it was easier to reach the people if they talk more on Heaven and...

The Road to Hell Case Study

...1. Briefly summarize the case: • John Baker, English expatriate and the chief engineer of the Caribbean Bauxite Company of Barracania in the West Indies, conducted an interview with Matthew Rennalls – a Barracanian and who is also Baker’s assistant and successor. • Matthew Rennalls was very racial conscious; his four years studying at London University made him sensitive to any sign of condescension on the part of expatriates. • Matt Rennalls would be taking over John Baker’s position once he left the company to go work as a production manager of Keso Mining Corporation in Canada. • Baker accused Rennalls of racism towards Europeans after receiving complaints from his co-workers in addition to noticing this behavior himself. • Baker conducted an interview with Rennalls which lead to accusation of Rennalls being racist in an indirect method. • Rennalls composed a letter of resignation the very next day after Baker conducted the interview. 2. Identify Key Facts: • Baker believes he has a knack of dealing with people of color, which can be attributed to his 23 years of work experience of working in developing countries. • Despite the fact that the company has more Barracanian managers than Europeans, some Barracanian feel that the company has unjust partiality towards the Europeans. Rennalls was one of the brightest Barracanian prospects on the staff of Caribbean Bauxite. • Rennalls wanted nothing to do with Baker and the rest of his people (Europeans) after......
