Many studies have addressed the issue of identifying the different dimensions of culture. In the presentations concerning culture by Madlin Reck and Anne Tornow the ways in which national culture may influence management processes, including Hofstede’s dimensions of culture have been discussed extensively (Luthans & Doh, 2012).

Afghanistan and the Taliban: Before, After and Now

The Kite Runner was set in the years 1975-2001. Everything during these years went from being peaceful, to bad, to even worse. The Taliban during these fateful years have taken control of Afghanistan and its government. They were thought of as heroes to the people of their once peaceful country, but their way of controlling their government is sadistic. In the present, they are even involved in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

During 1975, Afghanistan was a quiet place to live. There were economic hardships, but the residents of this pleasant country got through it. Kabul is the capital city of Afghanistan. It had the most economy problems in the country. Most of them were poverty difficulties. The president of this country at the time was Daoud Khan. Then, when winter came along, resistance towards communists began. Amir from The Kite Runner even knew of these communist attempts to rule his country. “Huddled together in the dining room and waiting for the sun to rise, none of us had any notion that a way of life had ended.” (Hosseini 36). The Afghan Islamist part of the resistance was favored by Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and the United States instead of the Afghan traditionalist and royalist parts. The uprising has just begun for the communist takeover in Afghanistan.

In 1979, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. Even Amir from The Kite Runner even knew about this before it all happened. “And then in December 1979, when Russian tanks would roll into the very same streets where Hassan and I played, bringing the death of the Afghanistan I knew”(Hosseini 36) The Taliban during this time were thought of as refugees and were part of a resistance movement to expel the Russian troops from their country. The United States and Pakistan provided financial and military support so the Afghans could win against the Soviet soldiers. Despite the fact that there were civilians in Kabul, the Afghans did not care and used missiles, provided by the United States, to drop on the city resulting in civilian casualties and killed Soviet troops. In 1989, Ahmed Shah Massoud, took over Kabul as new leader. They ended up overthrowing President Sayid Mohammed Najibullah, who headed the Afghan government. In 1994, the Taliban were more powerful because Pakistan favored them and did everything in their power to support them. “Pakistan support for the Taliban is based on strong religious and ethnic bonds between the Taliban and Pakistan” (Amghar, Web 6). The militants of the Taliban are Sunni Muslim Pashtuns. They are thirteen percent of Pakistan’s population. They are basically most of the Taliban in general.

In 1996, Osama Bin Laden moved from Sudan to Afghanistan and met with Mullah Mohammed Omar, the Taliban’s leader. “Bin Laden was involved in the bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998” (Amghar, Web 6). On September 11th, 2001, Bin laden prompted the bombing of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. This resulted in the United States asking the Taliban to immediately hand over Bin Laden. General Pervez Musharraf, president of Pakistan, told the U.S. that he would support the capturing of Bin Laden. Instead, they couldn’t take down Bin Laden and Al Qaeda because of the ethnic and religious ties with the Taliban. Basically, Pakistan let the Taliban do what like to the people in there cites by robbing them and raping women. “The Taliban were exceedingly ignorant, which made them cruel” (Arbabzadah, Web 1). The Taliban used to be heroes to the people of the country, but now they are just plain evil. In The Kite Runner, Amir’s friend Farid said the Taliban would look for any excuse for violence. Amir bought a fake beard because it is considered a sin to shave and that all men should have beards. He saw Kabul during this time and was unfamiliar with it as it is not how it used to be when he was a kid. Afghanistan is just plagued by the Taliban with no hope for escape.

 

 In conclusion, the Taliban before, after, and now are a deadly force to reckon with. I have to say that religion has a strong connection with them as they think of most things as sins. Amir from The Kite Runner depicts Afghanistan as a peaceful state. Now, he thinks of it as a wasteland that is ruled by a stubborn government with a false sense of religion. In my opinion, as much as I hate the Taliban, they must be removed from Afghanistan and Pakistan because they can cause a lot of trouble for those countries and can stir up many civil wars within those countries.

One Day, Thorium Could Power Everything

One Day, Thorium Could Power Everything | Scoopit Fast & Effective Curate Facts with MBD | Scoop.it
Laser Power Systems has created a concept for a thorium-powered car engine that would power your vehicle for 100 years.
Michael Borell's insight:

I heard of this nuclear fission a fews years back at Massy University in NewZealand 1996 how this  atom could be the new energy of the world in the future...I didnt believe this twenty eight years ago and now it is a reality...wow how could this be?

If I had heard this back in 1996 and the US government evolved it  in the 60s this could determine a new source of energy to power the globe.

Cadillac have designed the worlds first thorium powered concept vehicle how will impact fossil fuels of today in cars. Will? Fossil fuels become obselete in the near future?.

The thing is, Dr. Charles Stevens, the CEO of Laser Power Systems, told Mashable that thorium engines won't be in cars anytime soon.

"Cars are not our primary interest," Stevens said. "The automakers don't want to buy them."

He said too much of the automobile industry is focused on making money off of gas engines, and it will take at least a couple decades for thorium technology to be used enough in other industries that vehicle manufacturers will begin to consider revamping the way they think about engines.

"We're building this to power the rest of the world," Stevens said. He believes a thorium turbine about the size of an air conditioning unit could more provide cheap power for whole restaurants, hotels, office buildings, even small towns in areas of the world without electricity. At some point, thorium could power individual homes.

Stevens understands that people may be wary of Thorium because it is radioactive — but any such worry would be unfounded.

"The radiation that we develop off of one of these things can be shielded by a single sheet off of aluminum foil," Stevens said." "You will get more radiation from one of those dental X-rays than this."

Combining Technology, as an asset to marketing beyond, yet again connecting specific keywords...I leave it up to Scoop.it to find the right source for me to target, PDF and email to clients and customers...in Twitter I was using nine hash tags when tweeting only to find that three or four direct hash tags already bring a connection to people of interests, after using this system I had 690 followers of interest, which 30% emailed me an interest in finding out more of what I had to offer.

Direct contact is the advantage and possible for introverts to even use a simple system with #Hashtags.... The Go To Guy... Twitter.

mobiScan - the leading mobile barcode scanner SDK for iOS, Android & Win Phone 8 platforms - supports PDF417, Data Matrix, Aztec, QR & most 1D barcode types - Scan and Deliver: The Rapid Rise of QR Code Scanning
Michael Borell's insight:

HISTORY OF QR BARCODE; Wikepedia

 

The QR code system was invented in 1994 by Denso Wave. Its purpose was to track vehicles during manufacture; it was designed to allow high-speed component scanning. Although initially used for tracking parts in vehicle manufacturing, QR codes now are used in a much broader context, including both commercial tracking applications and convenience-oriented applications aimed at mobile-phone users (termed mobile tagging). QR codes may be used to display text to the user, to add a vCard contact to the user's device, to open a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), or to compose an e-mail or text message. Users can generate and print their own QR codes for others to scan and use by visiting one of several paid and free QR code generating sites or apps. The technology has since become one of the most-used types of two-dimensional barcode.

 

USES for QR BARCODE

 

Originally designed for industrial uses, QR codes have become common in consumer advertising. Typically, a smartphone is used as a QR code scanner, displaying the code and converting it to some useful form (such as a standard URL for a website, thereby obviating the need for a user to type it into a web browser).

 

 

A QR code in Japan used on a large billboard. http://sagasou.mobi MEBKM:TITLE:探そうモビで専門学校探し!;URL:http://sagasou.mobi;

"In the shopping industry, knowing what causes the consumers to be motivated when approaching products by the use of QR codes, advertisers and marketers can use the behavior of scanning to get consumers to buy, causing it to have the best impact on ad and marketing design."[9] As a result, the QR code has become a focus of advertising strategy, since it provides quick and effortless access to the brand's website.[10][11] Beyond mere convenience to the consumer, the importance of this capability is that it increases the conversion rate (that is, it increases the chance that contact with the advertisement will convert to a sale), by coaxing interested prospects further down the conversion funnel without any delay or effort, bringing the viewer to the advertiser's website immediately, where a longer and more targeted sales pitch may continue.

Although initially used to track parts in vehicle manufacturing, QR codes are now (as of 2012[update]) used over a much wider range of applications, including commercial tracking, entertainment and transport ticketing, product/loyalty marketing (examples: mobile couponing where a company's discounted and percent discount can be captured using a QR code decoder which is a mobile app, or storing a company's information such as address and related information alongside its alpha-numeric text data as can be seen in Yellow Pages directory), and in-store product labeling. It can also be used in storing personal information for use by organizations. An example of this is Philippines National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) where NBI clearances now come with a QR code. Many of these applications target mobile-phone users (via mobile tagging). Users may receive text, add a vCard contact to their device, open a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI), or compose an e-mail or text message after scanning QR codes. They can generate and print their own QR codes for others to scan and use by visiting one of several pay or free QR code-generating sites or apps. Google had a popular API to generate QR codes,[12] and apps for scanning QR codes can be found on nearly all smartphone devices.[13]

QR codes storing addresses and Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) may appear in magazines, on signs, on buses, on business cards, or on almost any object about which users might want information. Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader application can scan the image of the QR code to display text, contact information, connect to a wireless network, or open a web page in the telephone's browser. This act of linking from physical world objects is termed hardlinking or object hyperlinking. QR codes also may be linked to a location to track where a code has been scanned. Either the application that scans the QR code retrieves the geo information by using GPS and cell tower triangulation (aGPS) or the URL encoded in the QR code itself is associated with a location.[14]

Michael Borell's insight:

Glen Watson's insight to building success in Network Marketing.

I believe that Network Marketing is the key to surviving the fast growth of the Digital era we live in..so many people are blinded by traditional beliefs that have not embraced the way we live today.

 A clear example I was in Ashmore Plaza building a possible client base portfolio I walked into a fashion boutique that had no internet connection, no mobile connection, had a landline, and an old till possibly casio from the late eighties.... the owner of the shop I greeted with a smile asked her why she had not moved with the majority of the shops in the plaza she said all that technology is garbage so I said the simple truth is if you don't get digital today your going to fall into an abyss like many people who think similar to you.

Simply she never understood why it was important. So I explained why a  QR Barcode for such a small monthly price would be a great asset to have for her business! then she explained her daughter has been trying to get her on FACEBOOK for quite sometime to expose via social media marketing the Boutique shop . I explained with a QR Barcode Decal sticker on her shop window can mean the difference during and after hours a significance to showing her Boutique store without an expensive website and mobile app. So I sold her a QR Barcode decal sticker 12 x 12cm and a Samsung 5 smartphone with my ACN business, both a win win situation turning a negative into a positive for her and me.

So if your a small or a medium business I highly recommend  looking into a Network Marketing Investment. Simple if you knew a company you can get paid off all your essential bills  start investing the difference is having peace of mind by development and incorporating a secondary business with a primary business...

Funny or Die confesses to making the fake hoverboard that enthralled the internet | Scoopit Fast & Effective Curate Facts with MBD | Scoop.it
That hoverboard from yesterday that looked straight out of Back to the Future, and also too good to be true, is not the real deal. Funny or Die, the makers of numerous internet shenanigans,...
Michael Borell's insight:

For all the Back to the Future fans and the five million who got dooped into the ie Fake Hoveboard ad...including myself I was so excited! One of my childhood dreams was now becoming a reality. The ad was a response to the hoverboard concept of Steven Spielbergs Back to the Future, as a ten year old kid of the first movie I was a day dreamer Marty McFly wannabe skater of the hoverboard...lol

 

Back to the facts this was a viral video used as a stunt bringing in big celebrities Christopher Loyd, and Tony Hawk with a mix match of actors all involved in this funny hoax.

Five million views+ when it went viral in a short span of time brought the world into excitement thinking the Hoverboard of Back to The Future had now been invented. I was possibly one of millions of people ready to dish out the credit card in an instant to get me one, until my friend Marcos from Brazil emailed me and said it was just  a publicity stint hoax :-(  was pretty pissed at first but as I watched the ad over and over again I can laugh about it now..

A great stunt ad hopefully in the near future the real deal of the Hvrboard becomes a reality.

A big Cheers to Christopher Loyd aka Dr Emmett Brown, Tony Hawk, and the rest of you for bringing this amazing fake of the Hvrboard to life.

question? Could this be a viral stunt to bringing Back to the Future franchise to life? Just wondering.

 

And Thanks Funny or Die.

Infused and getting back into my old whakairo books opened up many ideas and ways to utilise my techniques with traditional and digital...so happy I learned to build new ways thanks to many artist worldwide who opened up  to ways of utilising skills from canvas and sketch to digital the most invigorating experience with new techniques I learned from digital artist a like, the right digital tools, and a way of expressing my artistic capabilities.

It has also opened up my social media interaction, and marketing skills finding the right people of interest in interior/exterior design industry preferably in Europe being so odd to me that tribal arts are very well exposed especially in Germany, Denmark, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

Amazing also many of my ex class mates especially my cousin Nigel Borell who is well recognised in the Art community in New Zealand and Globally around the world...which is good for me to have to look up to with his works and portfolio.

20 Reasons Why Network Marketing Is The Business of the 21st Century | Scoopit Fast & Effective Curate Facts with MBD | Scoop.it
This is all about why network marketing why now? In the current economic climate mlm is the business of the 21st century. A must read!
Michael Borell's insight:

I must say it is important to understand why? The Network Market Industry particularly with women is in a period I call "It's now or never" With technology changing our way of life, it is also changing the way we will survive in the digital age. if you have not heard massive statistics and deficits burdening many wealthy countries today. how it is  important to learn and understand the Network Market Industry right now.

Here's a little update by the Australian Government the 2014 Budget straight forward by Joe Hockey on why we must act now or diminish later...Now is the time to step up the game learn to take on our own responsibilities...which in a good way it should have been done a long time ago..

The Abbotts Government is right that all able bodied unemployment beneficiaries to work for there dole is a good  start, a way to get peoples mindsets changed very quick.

  There is no excuse and I highly believe this day in age it is all about performance and not the time you put in anymore

I am a big believer of this and many companies are moving towards this trend! Performance over the longevity of an employee in a company.

When businesses are laying of people by the thousands, isn't this the time to change your mindset "The" time to make a change?

Network Marketing welcomes the change it is a Trillion dollar industry with more Billionaires and Millionaires per capita of any other industry in the world, it is the industry you can build your own wealth literally  building your own actions to succeed.

 A lot of hard work, but! Each day you learn in the industry it not only builds, strong, motivation, intellectual presence! It builds a strong, willed leader who gives it all to overcome any obstacle in the way.

All it comes down to is adapting, learning, associating, being coachable, and never giving up.

A strong  leader in Network Marketing has wealth, pride, love, reputation and above all Leadership.

 I highly recommend if your focused, business minded, have the qualities to change you! and the conviction to become a leader The Network Market Industry is the place to be.

Social Marketing Trends in 2014 | Social Media Today

Social Marketing Trends in 2014 | Social Media Today | Scoopit Fast & Effective Curate Facts with MBD | Scoop.it
A look at some of the trends in social marketing you can expect to see in 2014.
Michael Borell's insight:

Images Will Matter More than Text

The adage, ‘a picture tells a thousand words,’ will hold good next year thanks to the effectiveness of images over text.  The rise of social media networks like Tumblr, Slideshare and Pinterest has been largely due to the fact that they focus on images rather than text – though the text is and will be an important aspect of online marketing campaigns. Since content is valuable only if it is shared, content that has images is more likely to be shared than content that’s stuffed with text. It is predicted that in 2014 the more images content has the more likely it will be shared. Mobli and Path, two other image-oriented social sites, will keep on growing as businesses will have to take note of the importance of sharing pictures on their blogs and sites to obtain noteworthy gains from their social media marketing endeavors.

Videos Will Remain Solid

Videos, especially the shorter ones, will get more popular on social media for marketing purposes. YouTube is leading the pack and is expected to continue its domination in 2014. The figures for YouTube reflect its authoritative nature – every hour 100 hours of videos are being uploaded on the channel. Instagram and Vine, both short video platforms, are also likely to grow. In fact, in 2014, shorter will most probably be better! People are getting busier every passing day; they want information quickly and so Vine and Instagram can expect to develop. Instagram’s 15 seconds videos are seen double the time that of their pictures. And Vine’s six seconds videos are showing great promise. Thus, come 2014 and more marketers will be using these tools.

Why I recommend learning graphic design in animation, and 4d/3d Design....why many great results are happening for my business today thanks to Great Australian Businessman Peter McMahon...learning fast and effective tools to build a direct response and interest locally first.

Michael Borell's insight:

If you are a private citizen with no business concern at all, then there is no great need for you to be on social media. The main reason that many private citizens are on it is because it is fun. You get to communicate with your friends and complete strangers. It is also loaded with brand new content every day, including content that your friends and family have posted.
