The functions of the telencephalon include: determining intelligence, personality, sense of smell, sense of touch, sensory impulse interpretations, organization and planning. The diencephalon is located in between the cerebral hemispheres and is greater than the midbrain. It is composed of the thalamus and hypothalamus structures. The thalamus acts as a relay point for nerve impulses that are inbound from around the body that are then dispatched to the appropriate area of the brain for processing. The hypothalamus controls hormone secretions produced from the pituitary gland. These hormones control growth and instinctual behaviors such as eating, drinking, sex, anger, and reproduction. The hypothalamus also controls when a new mother begins to lactate. Some of the functions of the diencephalon include: sensing impulses moving throughout the body, controlling autonomic functions, endocrine functions, motor functions, homeostasis and basic senses such as hearing, vision, smell, and taste. The cerebrum is the bigger portion of the brain and it consists of 85% of the overall weight of the brain.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY This is an assigned research of the course Ã¢â¬Å"Marketing ResearchÃ¢â¬ . The purpose of conducting this research is to know about the distribution of DHL, logistic system of DHL as well as the supply chain management. WeÃ¢â¬â¢ve found that as the people of our country and the system in Bangladesh is very much suitable for logistic business it can be very much profitable business for unemployed people. In our country there are some conducted research on logistic process and profitability but there are no research conducted that actually explains which factors are affecting the logistic system. So we were interested about the factors those are influencing and hampering the progress of logistic system. So this report is all about logistic system. DHL`s international networkÃ links almost 220 countries and territories worldwide. Around 285,000 employees are dedicated to providing fast and reliable services thatÃ exceed customers expectations in 120,000destinations in all continents. Three companies joined the brand of DHL in 2003, to set new and better standards in the courierÃ business the world over. These companies are; I. DHL Worldwide Express, the worldwide leader in air express II. Danzas, the worldwide leader in air andÃ sea freight III. Deutsche Post Euro Express, EuropeanÃ leader in parcel services. Profile of the organization DHL is the global leader in logistics with more highly experiencedÃ professionals atÃ more locations in more countries than any other provider. His goal is to build strong, long-term partnerships with customers byÃ providingÃ worldÃ classÃ services,Ã acrossÃ allÃ ourÃ operations. Just months after manÃ¢â¬â¢s first landing on the moon in 1969, DHL begins operating the first international door-to-door express delivery service in the world. It all started out of chance in a local food store of San Francisco. The idea came out during the meeting of two friends Mr. Adrain Dalsey and Mr. Larry Hillblom in July 1969. Dalsey was a sales person and Hillblom was a flying courier, thinking about his recent $3,000 stock market earnings for investment. Ã¢â¬Å"LetÃ¢â¬â¢s start a new company. Ã¢â¬ was the idea that came into their minds. A real estate associate Lynn joined them, and DHL began its first courier service between the West Coast of America and Hawaii. It is on the basis of the ownersÃ¢â¬â¢ names the name of the organization was suggested. DalseyÃ HillblomÃ Lynn ? DHLÃ¢â¬â¢s first customers were the shipping companies that required a service of early delivery of the shipping documents to reach their clients before the shipment itself, to make it easy and less time consuming. The banks that used companyÃ¢â¬â¢s services of overnight delivery to beat the postal system and to ensure a safer transport of documents and cheques worth millions of dollars.  By the time passing the rapidly growing network of enthusiastic customers in the USA, DHL begins to meet demands for an international service by opening territories in the Far East and Pacific Rim. DHLÃ¢â¬â¢s success provokes an envious response from rival companies and it has to fight a legal battle to stay in business. But this doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t stop further expansion: a separate company,Ã DHL International Ltd. ,Ã is established to focus on meeting the ever-increasing demand for international door-to-door deliveries.  The start of 80s marks a focus upon reliability, control, ease of billing, and flexibility of service: qualities which DHL meets customer needs to this day. To make sure the increasing size of DHL can still be managed effectively; a team of internal global strategies is formed to co-ordinate worldwide activities. 3] After thirty years of expansion there is few new territories left for DHL to move into. Instead the company concentrates on improvement by opening new service centers, forging new business partnerships and introducing new technology. The company has its head quarters situated in Brussels, Belgium. Though itÃ¢â¬â¢s an American based company, still it has its head office in Europe due ownership specific reasons.  Around the world, the people at DHL remain committed to providing the fastest, most reliable and flexible door to door express delivery service their customers can buy. For more than thirty years DHL has set the pace in their industry. As their customerÃ¢â¬â¢s needs have changed, as they have been among the first to enter new markets such as China or Eastern Europe, DHL has developed innovative logistics solutions which both support their business and help them increase the value they offer. And today that means much more than simply ensuring that time sensitive documents, packages or freight arrive safely, on time, every time. More than ever DHL works in partnership with their customers often as an integral part of their business supply chain. Over the past three years it had invested more than US $ 1. 5 billion worldwide in their people and additional state of the art handling, distribution and information systems, transportation equipment and facilities. That investment provides their entire customerÃ¢â¬â¢s with access to unrivalled infrastructure for the transfer of goods at a reasonable cost. So now DHL can do even more to make express delivery easier. For some customers DHL now handle a number of critical business functions from start to finish. For others their express logistics facilities increase efficiency quite substantially, creating benefits which can be passed to their customers. DHL aims to be acknowledged as world leader in express delivery, establishing industry standards of excellence for value and money. Nobody words harder to anticipate customer delivery needs than DHL does. Nobody understands those needs or the importance of promises made to customers better than DHL does. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s that understanding which forms the bedrock of DHLÃ¢â¬â¢s customersÃ¢â¬â¢ continued satisfaction and their own success. So customer can be sure that if it matters to them, it matters to DHL. 5] DHL commits its expertise in international express, air and ocean freight, road and rail transportation, contract logistics and international mail services to its customers. A global network composed of more than 220 countries and territories and 275,000 employeesÃ¢â¬â¢ worldwide offers customers superior service quality and local kno wledge to satisfy their supply chain requirements.

After sales services Introduction of the Study Logistics is concerned with getting the products and services where they are needed and when they are desired. It is difficult to accomplish any marketing or manufacturing without logistical support. It involves the integration ofÃ information, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material handling, and packaging The operating responsibility of logistics is the geographical repositioning of raw materials, work inÃ process, and finished inventories where required at the lowest cost possible. Logistics is practiced for ages since organized activity began. Without logistics support no activity can be performed to meet defined goal. The current challenge is to perform logistics scientifically inÃ order to optimize benefits to the organization. Logistics is a planning function of management. Logistics function is concerned with taking products and services where they are needed and when they are needed. LOGISTICS MANAGEMENTS: Logistics management is that part of the supply chain which plans, implements and controls the efficient, effective, forward and backward (reverse) flow and storage of goods, services and information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customers requirements rather to the customersÃ ¶ delight. AÃ professional working in the field of logistics management is called a logistician. Logistics, as a business concept, evolved only in the 1950s. This was mainly due to the increasing complexity of supplying ones business with materials, and shipping out products in an increasingly globalize supply chain, calling for experts in the field who are called Supply Chain Logisticians. This can be defined as having the right item in the right quantity at the right time at the right place for the right price and to the right target customers (consumer);and it is the science of process having its presence in all sectors of the industry. The goal of logistics work is to manage the fruition of project life cycles, supply chains and resultant efficiencies. Logistics is Concerned with getting (orÃ transmitting) the products and services where they are needed or when they are desired. It is difficult to accomplish any marketing orÃ manufacturing without logistical support. It involves the integration ofÃ information, transportation, inventory, warehousing, material handling, and packaging. The operating responsibility of logistics is the geographical repositioning of raw materials, work in process, and finished inventories where required at the lowest cost possible. Rationale of the study To know Industrial sector properly Distribution is a broad industry sector responsible for managing the flow of goods, information, and people between a point of origin and a point of consumption in order to meet the requirements of consumers. Major sub-sectors within the industry include air, rail, water, and truck transportation, urban transit and ground passenger transportation, warehousing and storage, and motor vehicle repair. Logistics involve the integration of these sub sectors, including information, transportation, and inventory, warehousing, material-handling, and packaging. In all, Distribution contains 30 sub-sectors engaged in the movement of goods, information, and people. Nationwide, 4. 5% of firms fall into distribution, while the sector accounts for 4. 5% of employment and 4. 1% of wages. Factors contributing to industry growth include globalization and continued growth in the importation of products produced overseas Technologies such as electronic data interchange that allow better tracking of product information, and radio frequency identification that streamlines the distribution process will continue to transform the transportation, distribution, and logistics industry. That is why distribution is very much important for industrial sector. Increase realistic knowledge Marketing research can be defined as the process of gathering recording and analyzing the data related to certain products and services. This need for market research is derived from the concept that only by understanding the needs and wants of the target audience and by effectively meeting them, which will be able to achieve the organizational goals and surpass the competition in the specific market. Thus, arises the need to collect data about the customers, competitors, and other forces in the marketplace. This data in turn is collected and analyzed to make relevant marketing decisions, be it in relation to setting up a business, developing a product, creating a brand or coming up with an advertising campaign. To increase of the practical knowledge about distribution it helps me for betterment. To Make Marketing Decisions Marketing research helps the marketers to make a decision about the product or service. Sometimes a marketer might believe that the new product or service is useful for the customers. However, research may show that customers do not need a product or are meeting their needs with a certain competitor product and so on. Similarly good marketing research strives to provide options for the successful introduction of new products and services. This makes the market entry of a new product or service less risky. It makes me to decide the right place at the right time. Statement of the problem 1. Possibility of new distribution channel to grab new or more customers or the market 2. To determine the effectiveness of distribution channel 3. Possible threats the company might face in the future Scope and delimitation of the study In the organization all the developments are equally important and interrelated. To achieve organizational goals successfully through a perfect strategic planning all the stage should be performed accurately. Here in our research we are discussing about supply chain and the logistic process of DHL. We are also analyzing its influence on organization. Every organization need well adjusted, trained and experienced people to perform its activities. Here we will talk about the importance and needs of logistics and distribution process and development process. Our focus is to know and understand that what kind of distribution channel they are applying. We will also try to find out the impact of it on the organization. We will discuss about the logistic system and supply chain of the organization. Objective of the study Broad objectives DHL has the worldÃ¢â¬â¢s largest express and logistics Network. Over the past decades it had turned delivering goods into a finely oiled process. . DHL has developed a reputation for consistently developing innovative solutions that streamline operations and improve control. Their in-house teams have contributed to the solutions design of some of the worlds leading brands and enabled to win key contacts. DHL is service based company and services are critical for competitive advantage in companies from all sectors. Superior customer service is one of the key drivers of Competitive advantage. Overall objectives Ã¢â¬ ¢ To present the General condition of the courier industry and the distributing procedures Ã¢â¬ ¢ To have a general concept on the parcel and logistics courier service. Specific objectives Ã¢â¬ ¢ To find the techniques of distribution Ã¢â¬ ¢ To find the distribution techniques of Ã¢â¬Å" DHL Express BangladeshÃ¢â¬ Limitations Every report will have some limitations. Therefore, while doing our report we have also faced few limitations which are as follows: Respondents give invalid and incorrect responses so it is difficult to measure the accuracy of the responses. Thus, it can result in quantitative estimation error due to respondent miscomprehension. ? Time constraint- this is a fact that every one face, it is always not enough to complete a certain task by feeling t hat enough time was not given. Though we did not fail to complete the project on time, more the time is available the better the project gets. We have to face many limitations to do the study . such as- Ã¢â¬ ¢ Sometimes they show less responsibility to discuss. Ã¢â¬ ¢ Sometimes authority donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to give any information They give wrong information Ã¢â¬ ¢ They donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to share their plan Ã¢â¬ ¢ They donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to express their techniques Methodology The research methodology was based on collection of data from primary and secondary sources. The primary sources were the 3PL providers, and data collection was through questionnaire surveys, telephonic interviews and personal visits. The secondary sources were books, published reports, journal articles and the Internet. The details ofÃ the questionnaire design and the process of administering the questionnaire to potential respondents are outlined below. Sources of information: Primary: We will use the data for our research paper as we go to the company and take interview of the manager and employees and ask them relevant question about the effect of ethical code we will prepare set of question and ask them to fill it up. Secondary: We will search their web site or can sent questionnaire by e-mail and ask them to fill it up by internet. Research approach We will be based mainly on the survey in the company for our research paper. we will go to the company and ask relevant question to the manager and employees and will collect the data. We will also research is web site of the company. Research tools Questionnaire For collecting data we will use a set of relevant question to ask the manager and employees to fill it up. The questionnaire will be in MCQ type and open ended. Mechanical tools For our report we will use computer and its software like Microsoft word, excel and the internet for browsing for information Sampling plan Sample unit We will focus on middle level worker mainly for our survey. Sample size We will take a sample size of 10 or more for our data collection process through interview. Contact method Personal interview We will mainly base on personal interview as contact method for collecting data for our term paper. We will give the questionnaire and ask to fill it up Mail questionnaire If there are any difficulties in direct interview then we will send questionnaire by e-mail. Phone calls For more information we will also use mobile and land phone to contract with them. Analysis and Interpretation of data 1. Which company will you choose to make your good delivered? Sample Size: 14 people Age: None Sample Area: Dhaka [pic] According to survey the respondents choose 8. 2% compare to FedEx, TNT, UPS. There will be a huge difference from DHL to FEDEX because of the good deliver. And the rest of the parts are very unfamiliar which holds up only 1. 4% as well as 1. 2%. 2. According to you, which company provides the best service? Sample Size: 14 people Age: 19-40 Sample Area: Dhaka [pic] This was the service based questionnaire for the respondent which carries 6% service provider are from DHL out of 14 respondent. And 4% are from FedEx which is very near to DHL. The most closely respondent is TNT. Apart from it UPS carry only 1%. 3. Do you think any other new competitor should enter in the market? If no why? Sample Size: 14 people Age: 25-40 Sample Area: Dhaka [pic] This is the most important part for DHL get the good response from the respondents. Because of the 9% no holder said that there is really do not need any competitor in this competitive market. So that DHL already capture the 70% market share out of 100%. 4. Do all the service providers meet the superior standers, quality and safety measurements while delivering the goods? Sample Size: 14 people Age: 24-40 Sample Area: Dhaka [pic] This is comparatively tricky question about the quality and standards of the service provider. There is only 4. % respondent who are strongly agree with their delivering goods. Most of the respondents are goes with 5. 5% . but there will be few respondents who are answering moderate agree with 3. 5%. Disagree had only . 5%. 5. According to you, which company do you think is the leading one as per market share? Sample Size: 14 people Age: 24-40 Sample Area: Dhaka [pic] The survey said UPS got the 2% o f respondent support. FEDEX and DHL have the same percentage with 5. 5%. TNT goes up with 1% respondent. 6. Do you think DHL has proper distribution channel? Sample Size: 14 people Age: 24-40 Sample Area: Dhaka [pic] The respondent used to confuse about the distribution channel. The outlets of DHL have only few comparatively the global market. That is why they have the mixed answer. only 8% were covered the positive part and 6% covered by the negative respondent. 7. Do you agree DHL should increase distribution channel in BD? Sample Size: 14 people Age: 24-40 Sample Area: Dhaka [pic] This survey is pretty much astonishing because of agree and strongly agree have a massive gap. The respondent with strongly agree has covered by 8. 2%. but the agree respondent had only 1. 2%. therefore moderate agree and disagree had closest value which is 1. % and 1. 2%. 8. Do you think DHL they have proper transportation to distribute their services? 9. according to you, DHL they increase their transportation system to distribute the goods? [pic] Here respondent answered of two questions in a same way about to increase Distribution channel. Thus the YES holder came up with 12%. but few of the respondent answer it negatively with 4%. Findings OTHER REASONS STATED BY RETAILER FOR BRAND PREFERENCE: DHL I. Better Service II. Good name in the market III. Timely available IV. Immediately respond on the competitorÃ¢â¬â¢s strategy V. Relatively less price VI. Better packaging VII. ogistic grade is good and people are satisfied Suggestions The sales people should have faith on their abilities of convincing clients besides the lowest rate offering by their company in winning businesses. i. DHL Express should take more skillful sales people to make a difference in the sector. ii. DHL Express should arrange more training sessions for their employees. iii. DHL Express should open new branches all around the country. iv. DHL Express should improve their delivery and pick up service. v. DHL management should lessen their paper work by implementing the web based network system. 1. ENHANCE THE SMART-TRUCK PROJECT Because of the stage of recession and high competition, the companies need to make difference to have new customers and increase their market share. To invent completely new product can be very expensive and take very much time. So, making little difference on the current product or service can be better. At this time, we need to talk about innovation. As a CEO of DHL Logistics, enhancing the Smart-TruckÃ Project is going to be my first strategy. This project will allow ourÃ company to deliver faster and cut cost by using less fuel. To achieve this goal, we will follow some steps: a. Increase the budget of RD 10%. b. b. Prepare an office for a new innovation team and assign a leader to work on this projectÃ¢â¬â¢s. c. Also pay premium for new and creative ideas whoever gives it(even juniors). So this will provide us innovative atmosphere 2. AQUIRE SMALL SIZE LOGISTICS COMPANIES: By acquiring small local companies in different countries like China, India, USA, will give us pretense in that countries. Also, this will decrease the threat of restrictions in those companies. Even they are small companies; they can have creative solutions to different problems. So were acquiring new brains at the same time. We can get some ideas from them to improve our skills. I mean we are not firing people who were working there actually; we are hiring them to work with us. Conclusion Logistics is one the most important and integral part of any organizations strategy and function. When the logistical processes carried out accurately then not only the company reduces the production cost but also improves the efficiency and customer satisfaction. Overall logistics management is very important for todayÃ¢â¬â¢s highly competitive and cut-Ã throat corporate world. DHL has the worldÃ¢â¬â¢sÃ largest express and logistics Network. Over the past decades it had turned delivering goods into a finely oiled process. Be it a book, pen, WIP material, drugs, hazardous chemicals, clothes, documents, wild animals and any other thing under the sun DHL delivers it. With a network spanning 200countriesÃ andÃ withÃ itsÃ privateÃ fleetÃ ofÃ airplanes,Ã mobileÃ vans, cargoÃ shipÃ carriersÃ Ã evenÃ railÃ wayÃ automotivesÃ inÃ some countries DHL can handle any type of goods. Not only has that with international network there come the hassle of documentationandÃ paperwork,Ã standardÃ packagingÃ andÃ otherÃ formalitiesÃ toadhere to. But DHL has its own department which looks into the international laws and other formalities. In the end what matersisÃ deliveringÃ goodÃ inÃ goodÃ conditionÃ atÃ theÃ doorÃ stepÃ ofÃ thecustomer? A happy and satisfied customer makes the business grow. Competitors have comeÃ and gone butÃ DHL has been able to keepÃ itsÃ NoÃ 1Ã positionÃ intact. ThisÃ isÃ becauseÃ ofÃ itsÃ dynamicnatureÃ andÃ attitudeÃ ofÃ maintainingÃ goodÃ customerÃ relations. LogisticsÃ managementÃ isÃ importantÃ forÃ everyÃ organizationÃ but more so DHL. We have tried to incorporate all the facets of logistics which propel DHL to be the best delivery and carriage-service around the world. No wonder that DHL is head and shoulders above all ofÃ its competitors!

It is a sin against God, against His will, and His way (Sin Np). Those who have committed this sin need to ask for forgiveness to God in confession, so they can reconcile with Him. God said in the Bible, Ã¢â¬Å"If we acknowledge our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from every wrongdoing (1 John 1:9 1360). Ã¢â¬Å"The Bible explains, Ã¢â¬Å"The body, however, is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the bodyÃ¢â¬ (1 Corinthians 6:13 1236). ItÃ¢â¬â¢s saying that they should have some respect to their bodies, because God made us. From the Catholic Bible, premarital sex refers to fornication. The unity love of a husband and wife is Ã¢â¬ËfleshÃ¢â¬â¢. When there in love they have the right to be with one another. A bunch of people may have thought they were truly in love with someone, had lost their virginity to them, and then they end up going separate ways. We will write a custom essay sample on Premarital Sex or any similar topic specifically for you Do Not WasteYour Time HIRE WRITER Only 13.90 / page People donÃ¢â¬â¢t know the consequence what will happen for those who have had premarital sex. Many people get tempted into having sex before marriage only because everyone else is doing it, they think itÃ¢â¬â¢s okay if they have fornication. Ã¢â¬Å"Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoralÃ¢â¬ (Marriage Np). The history of premarital sex is mostly involved with everyone now because those who are Catholics are usually the ones who have sex before marriage. Those who are not CatholicÃ¢â¬â¢s have fewer people who have had premarital sex. Alfred Kinsey, a zoologist who liked to know about human sexual behavior. He had interviewed a lot of people, and had a result that in 1905 to 1920 there was a huge change in premarital sexual behavior. In 1650 A. D. , premarital sex was like a crime and they made it illegal. Later in 1881 A. D. , Tony Pace, and Mary J. Cox, they were going to go to jail for 2 years because of having premarital sex. In 1981 A. D. , Pope John Paul II said that premarital sex does not only bring guilt but also to be envy and unfriendliness (John Paul II Np). During 2005 A. D. , if you and your couple were 18 years of age, then most countries would let you have sex before marriage. The history changed a lot from back then, because they had punishments for them if they committed it. For us in today, we have to make our right decision in following GodÃ¢â¬â¢s way, which is to wait until your married for sexual love. The statistics of premarital sex is showing that in a data of survey age by 20, 75% of people had premarital sex. The age of 44, 95% of people having premarital sex; women who were turning 15 from 1954 to 1993, around 91% had premarital sex at age of 30. The chart below is showing the numbers of percentage of people who are all catholic and have committed premarital sex; and those who are weekly attending Catholics. It shows that 39%, in 1972 the adult Catholics said fornication was always wrongdoing. The percentage went up at 52, for the weekly attending Catholics who thought it was wrong. Those who donÃ¢â¬â¢t attend mass and are Catholic have a higher number at 86%. There is a lot of Catholics who attend church and donÃ¢â¬â¢t agree on not having sex before marriage. They donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to follow what God said to us, Ã¢â¬Å"to wait until we found our spouse to have sexual relations togetherÃ¢â¬ . Premarital sex on this chart is showing that this has been happening for a while now. (Pope, Msgr. Charles Np) (Pope, Msgr. Charles Np) That top graph is showing the percent of high school students who have had premarital sex, from between 1991 to 2007. It was a Youth Risk Behavior Survey taken more than 16,000 students in over 150 high schools, throughout the whole nation (Pope, Msgr. Charles Np). As you can see, in 1991 the percentage was 54. 1, the highest overall all those other years. From 1993 to1997 the percentage decreased, of 53% to 48. 4% from both females and males. Then it started increasing a little bit in 1999, about 49. 9%. It had decreased again in 2001, with a 45. 6%; from there it increased throughout the other years, a 47. 8% in 2007. That was the last percentage taken from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey in 2007 from high school students, both males and females having premarital sex. This other graph below is showing another percentage that premarital sex was starting around the 1900. In 1900, it was 6% women in the U. S. having premarital sex, at the age of 19. Compared to before as of today, the percentage has increased to a 75%. Only 15% of women had the attitude of having premarital sex in 1968. The statistics are showing that it will probably increase in the future. (Premarital sex graph Np) In America premarital sex, on average for young people happens about the age of 17. In 2006-2010, the most common reason that sexually inexperienced teens gave for not having had sex was that it was Ã¢â¬Å"against religion or moralsÃ¢â¬ (38% among females and 31% among males) (Statistics in America Np). Some other reasons were that females said they want to wait for someone special, or they donÃ¢â¬â¢t want to get pregnant. A female who had premarital sex the percentage is about 70% and the males is 56% with a steady partner not just a friend. Teens from the U. S. and Europe have the same issue of premarital sex. There are a lot of people who have sex before marriage, because they feel like theyÃ¢â¬â¢re going to lose their partner. People who arenÃ¢â¬â¢t ready for sexual relationship, they need time and if the other person doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t accept you then you leave them. A survey shows for the Chinese was said that there is 70% of Chinese people who had premarital sex. The report showed that in comparison to 1994, the ratio of Chinese citizens who have had premarital sexual activity in 2012 has increased 30%, reaching 71. 4% (Chinese Statistics Np). The society canÃ¢â¬â¢t really do anything about having premarital sex because itÃ¢â¬â¢s your own decision on what you want to do. As societies they must set legal and behavioral boundaries just like God did. You may have to deal with unwanted pregnancies, and the consequences of sexual immorality. Premarital sex effects somewhat on our society from having sexual images sent out, living together without being married, and prostitution. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a sin it also effects on the people who care about you. In Australia, you have to be 16 to legally have a sexual relationship. The possible outcomes of premarital sex can be that young teens may have any STDÃ¢â¬â¢s if youÃ¢â¬â¢re not careful. That would be really difficult to handle at an early age. Getting pregnant is another possible outcome because they would have to take care of their baby or they may want to commit a horrible sin by doing abortion. That is really mature situation someone would have to take if getting pregnant at any early age. Also, they would have probably family problems in the future, dealing with the money and etc. They probably have the conscience filled with guilt of having sex before marriage. People should really think about what they are doing to themselves, if they ask for forgiveness to God, he will forgive you. They must not do it again until marriage. God wants us all to follow Him, have sex until marriage with our loved one whom we will share everything with them for all eternity until separated through death.

The role of Community in modern World The society is never static and this attributes to the the fact that the changes are there in the society. These change are brought about by the natural and individual sources. That is why this call for the systematic and well structured approach to deal with these projected adversities in the society where we human beings leave. Through the study of emergency management it enables the society to be prepared in the avoidance of risks and develop good structures to be able to mitigate the severity of the outcomes from a possible risk. The community is the core of the global society which faces various forces that are coming together to shift the community dynamics in a dramatic way, in the aspect as the widening gap between the rich and the poor in both developed and developing nations. There's population influx in relation to consumption and the environment ability to support and sustain the community. Need essay sample on "The role of Community in modern World" topic? We will write a custom essay sample specifically for you Proceed Environmental crisis evident in the global warming resulting into floods, climatic instability, hydrological and atmospheric challenges and the socio-economical issues that faces our today community. And as those challenges persists to become unbearable the urge for change in the social life to acquire and leave a more stress life so that we can have constructive and positive impact in the world today than destructive. Therefore this dissertation looks at these unfolding challenges to humanity in their environment and how to integrate and build a healthy relationship between the various systems of the community to have resilient and sustainable community by the use of emergency management techniques. The ideas are being incoperated with the case study of Singapore in in the year 1960 when they withdrew from the Malaysian federation and were faced with economic recession and communist subdivisions. Community is a group of organisms who are interacting and shares a common environment. The more advanced approach to community concept is to mean persons that shares common characteristics their location and the extend of their interaction not withstanding (Graham John 2003) . In this sense however, resilient community uses a combination of live satellite, video conferencing, articles, locally organized community based articles for discussion and the web based resumes (Delvant 2003). The community also encompasses the international community which includes the coverage of such terms as ecovillages, communities, student cooperation's, residential land trusts where persons work together to achieve a common vision that is beneficial to all regardless of their geographical environment (Charles 2003) . Community also can mean a group of individuals living together in a large society who are linked with a common policy. Sustainability is the characterized process that can be maintained at a definite level therefore, sustainability of community will focus on the community development that will last and be well maintained which focuses on the values, purposes and outcomes of the community factors which includes the prescriptive values of economic, political, religion and philosophical systems that should be networked and interlinked to yield better results the community (Walker David 2006). In order for the community to succeed in its sustainable community development it should employ the principle of transparent handling of the risk, appropriately valued nature restoration, integration of all sectors of community such as ecological, social, economical and humanistic in its policies, Equality in community opportunities and participation, continuous improvement through innovative and inventive to existing structures ofter assessing and evaluating and the supervisory functionality of good and cooperate governance (Charles 2003) . Resiliency is the ability of an individual or group of individual or society to manage the adversity in a way that is effective and which has the ability to respond to future adversity (Gupta 2003) . The most community today in the challenging world have resiliency in the adversity of poverty, war conflicts and both climatic and parental illness resiliency is characterized by two major concepts, such concepts are risk factor which is in terms of adversity or stress life events characterizing the individual and his/her environment (Charles 2003). The second one is the protective factors that includes skills or formality and essential aspects which act as buffer and base of resumes to deal with adversities effectively. Therefore, resiliency is the balance between the risks in the environment and the capability to manage them using the available support. Therefore, in the community resiliency builds around the issue of community structure seen from infancy to entrance to school then to adolescence to adulthood by detachment from the parents to becoming responsible adults. In community resiliency is an important concept during society transition when adversity tend to accumulate (Delvant 2003). The issue of whether the adversity will be successful managed it should be compartmentalized into separate sub-units and dealt with separately as entities in the society. These sub units includes physical and change or emotional resiliency that should be tackled well at present and the future. If that is due it yields the process of sustainable community development. Therefore, resiliency in the context of community development will be used as mechanism which the community used due to their capabilities to cope up with stress successfully and that it should have the aspect of dynamism which will contribute to community enhancement and maintenan ce of the key sectors of the community. The community is composed of individuals therefore, in order to build a resilience community individuals are key factor. Individuals characteristics puts them at risks, such characters as low self-esteem (Delvant 2003). The environmental characteristics plan a threat to pose an individual to risks as poverty, neighborhood, crowding, parental psychopathology and deviated peer group. Individuals protective factor that contributes to resiliency in includes cognitive skills, ability to plan independently, competency in ones history that lead to success in life and being optimistic and positive in life perceptions. Resiliency in individuals trickles down to familial protective factors where the individual is natured and influenced in most aspects of his life. These factors may include positive parent to child attachment and interaction, effective parenting constituted by the structure of rules and regulation within household (Graham John 2003). Then one resiliency has been established from individuals for families then can be looked as in terms of community. Community is seen to be resilient when it responds to adversity in a manner that strengthens the community resources and the ability to manage stress in future. The factors that contribute to the community resiliency is the mutual support characterized by high level of community participation and the community collective expectations excelling and sailing through the challenges that faces it. The community responds to crisis such as environmental, economic, working hard and voluntary, equal treatment of members of community. The key to community resiliency is empowerment factor which has direct bearing to the level of community empowerment in relation to policies and policy choices in the community (Gupta 2003) . These leads to establishment of community based programs directed to individuals resiliency such as experiential outdoor education. In order to achieve the resilient community it calls for procedures, process and principles to be involved. This key tools includes: there are a number of reasons for a resilient community is clearly seen through positive of harmonious partnership and cohesiveness between the grassroots, natural and regional level of communism which leads to potential stability, security, social and economic prosperity and progress. Impotent measure to controlling internal conflicts which can result into external hazards for outside which created sustainable livelihood of the people in a given region. Through construction of a resilient community in operations and functions it gives support to the inter community lend for instance national political and socio-economic. In construction resilient community key step is network connections in that, communities are built on connections which should be good to give better opportunities (Thomas 2001). This is achieved through improving the interaction of community internally and externally. Connectivity which is improved is created through interactive procedures by knowing and mending the network which starts with a network map that shows the complexity of human system the resilient community is to be built in. the network will provide the connections and relationship between the community ecosystems in business, political, socio-economic which helps answer key questions that can be based on when building resilient community (Gupta 2003) . The networking process touches the fundamental concepts of leadership roles in the community, preparedness of the community and whether right connections are in place. the effective network should reflect the common objective attainment in the subsystem of governance, should embrace the diversity factor so that it can cluster and nodes to maximize innovation in the network. The network should have an average path length since long path length usually distorts the message when it travels for long between the two nodes. However the average path length is convenient to measure networks global efficiency (Charles 2003) . The network for the community resiliency and sustainability undergoes four main phases to build. All these phases are inter linked to each other with bridging and facilitation by the subsistence of the leadership and the society preparedness to undergo the whole process in order to achieve the common goal. Each phase apart from the first one is built on a more adaptive and resilient structured network than the previous one so that it can be effective in tracing and tracking the community progress through the use of these phases. These phases are interconnected through evolving in the an effect that one phase should lead gradually to the next but systematical (Thomas 2001) . The first phase is usually at the individuals level that organizes them selves which is the initial stage referred to as the scattered cluster (Gupta 2003) . Clusters are with individuals ranging from one to five a group which gives the insight of the underdeveloped communities. Persons always isolate from each other and therefore lack of interactive learning and exchange of ideas that leads to underproduction sand low rate of development which makes the community structure to remain weak. At the stage there is a vital requirement to transform the system to be able to attain higher achievements. Tis the point where the role the leadership comes in and in this regard is refereed to as the weaver (Charles 2003) . The weaver makes the critical role of establishing new interactions to coordinate the activities within these groups leading to the emergency of strong groups. After a series of coordinated events the network weaver connects the small groups to come up with the spoke and him o r herself becomes the hub. The make the second system referred to as single hub and spoke. The weaver is expected to have energy, vision and necessary skills to connect the diverse of individuals by inducing the information flow ]from and to the groups. Weaver has to establish external links to bring a bout innovation and resources in the community (Walker David 2006) . Empowerment of the groups is key to achieving the informative relationship establishment and attain the collaboration and link up with member groups (Charles 2003) . Members of the community unless they cooperate the system may not blossom into a successful relationship to have a constructive development. These can be attained by proper of the society training which will help to identify and come up with other emerging weavers so that they can be equipped with necessary skills to run the community (Gupta 2003) . The weaver also starts to receive and develop a comprehensive data bank for the single hub and spoke network in the community, and starts to link them up with common goals and objectives and handles similar operations. The connection and linking up of the single hub and spoke will make the weaver to be the facilitator amongst the groups of the society (Walker David 2006). Once the process of the linking of the groups is successfully achieved the second phase is upgraded to the next phase resilient and sustainable community building and development which will be formed by the various single hub and spoke system. Thus in Singapore the young, energetic and visionary prime minister Mr. Lee Kuan Yew established a grassroots based movement, referred to as Peoples Association (PA). T he main objective was to have all people residing in the neighborhood are proactive members involved in the activities as sports, religious affairs, vocational training. The resulting level will be the multi hub small world network where the relationship between the the divide should be built. So that the information and innovation will be accessed by the community. The community groups can organized, collaborate and cooperate within the network. The original weaver engages in the activities and planing which model new weavers to take care of the network building and maintenance processes (Thomas 2001) . this is significant because the original leader will have deviated in its role play from the direct to indirect leader or weaver. Where he will be performing supervisory roles in the whole process and will be responsible of detecting the weaknesses of the system and strength through evaluating the performance of the current system its ope rationality and productivity outcomes to the society. Once the multi system has been will coordinated it should gradually lead to the end and ultimate goal of the structure system. By the year 1970 Singapore establi shed 150 community centers who were managed by 1500 managers helped by 450 volunteers. Management supervised by 2000 management committees. As a result it collected total of $20.9 million community funds which was used to support this centers to promote and prevent other related risk a part from containing the two major threats of communism and recession of economy (Graham John 2003). These system will be referred to as the periphery and core phase that comes as a result of strong and well established that have the capacity and characteristics to link up with other regional networks and perform well. The phase is characterized by the factors such as those organizations that are new to the network and work hard to get to the core, it act as the bridging to diverse the community and lastly usually have the unique resources that operates outside the community (Delvant 2003). The periphery allows the reaching out of the ideas and informations that leads to desirable innovations and development of the community that are not prevalent in that society (Gupta 2003) . While the core offers the community systems with effect of acting and implementing those ideas and informations availed by the periphery to attain practical outcomes. Thus the periphery acts as the evaluation and monitoring tool to the system henceforth resulting data analyzed and statistical in formation obt ained will be used in the weaving or reweaving to match the present environment requirements. The challenge is in the aspect of updating and maintenance of the structured system so as to yield a resilient sustainable community. In conclusion theres an need for construction of the resilient and sustainable community in the todays world as its evident with psychological, physical and socio-economical adversities. By the use of the expanded scope of disaster management it can be done through the identification of the current network, assessed and then embark on the making it effective to suit the community. These will be achieved through the explication of the conceptual link between the community aspects, resilient and the mechanisms which foster resiliency with the proper tools put in place to create the enabling and supportive environment to the processes of resilient community building. As a result will develop community which will have a good capacity and capabilities to meet the community needs without compromising the future ability of the community. Therefore its important for the community to be stable status, coexist and be cooperative to attain the objective of a resilient and sustainable community to have a viable livelihood for the community. All in all resiliency has a great promising future for the sustainable community if its based on the sound theory and comprehensi9ve research.

Agriculture and Irrigation Essay Agriculture and Irrigation Essay The use of irrigation in ancient times has affected the way we grow crops today. Irrigation has been used for many centuries to get the water from a river to the crops. Today, we also use this way of watering crops. With the use of irrigation crops are able to be grown in larger amounts. In Sandra PostelÃ¢â¬â¢s article Ã¢â¬Å"Growing more Food with less WaterÃ¢â¬ uses facts to explain how the use of irrigation is very effective in growing more food. The quote Ã¢â¬Å"Most of these people live in Asia and Africa, where long dry seasons make crop production difficult or impossible without irrigationÃ¢â¬ shows that many countries depend on irrigation to survive. (Postel 7) In many countries they depend on rivers to get the water they need to the crops. Since there isnÃ¢â¬â¢t much rain in countries like Asia Africa they need any fo rm of irrigation they can use. It is important for these countries survival that they use irrigation. Many irrigation systems are very expensive so many farmers in poorer countries cannot afford them.

Indeed, China's last dynasty started to succumb the moment Moa founded the Chinese Communist Party in 1921. Thirteen years later, the political party had a membership of more than eighty thousand individuals. Chiang Kai-shek, a commander of the Nationalist Army, ordered his army to pursue members of the Chinese Communist Party. Although faced with challenges and mistrust, MaoÃ¢â¬â¢s party formed an alliance with the Nationalists against the Japanese government during the Second World War.

For exa mple, Mao established policies that allowed its government to redistribute some lands to peasant farmers. Mao provided a gateway to democracy and realization of human rights by providing college students with the freedom to carry out counter-revolutionaries. Similarly, the former emperors such as Liu Bang established friendly policies that lowered taxation rates and provided people with more freedom. However, Mao had a different leadership model that set in a motion of Ã¢â¬Å"Great Leap ForwardÃ¢â¬ that aimed at safeguarding the industrial, agricultural, and construction sectors.
