How to manage Legal Risks by International Firms?

The regulatory environment for international and global managers consists of the many local laws and the court systems in those countries in which they operate. Certain other legal issues are covered by international law, which in turn governs relationships between sovereign countries – the basic units in the world political system. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG) regulates international business by spelling out the rights and obligations of the seller and the buyer.

Risk Assessment in Business-to-Business (B2B) Transactions

Business-to-business (B2B) e-business is likely to expand globally faster than B2C (business to-consumer) transactions, such as Amazon.com in coming decade. Consumer e-commerce depends on each country’s level of access to computers and the Internet along with the relative efficiency of home delivery. So, companies who want to go global through e-commerce must localise to globalise, which means they should present online content in local languages.

Social Responsibility and MNCS

Multinational corporations (MNCs) have been at the center of debate regarding corporate social responsibility (CSR), particularly the benefits versus harm wrought by their operations around the world, especially in developing countries. The criticisms of MNCs have been lessened in recent years by the decreasing economic differences among countries, by the emergence of developing countries’ own multinationals and by the greater emphasis on social responsibility by MNCs.

Impact of Corporate Social Responsibility on Companies

It is clear that there are long-term competitive benefits deriving from Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). These benefits result from the goodwill, attractiveness and loyalty of the various stakeholders connected with the firm. Ikea, Swedish home retailer with 317 stores worldwide, gave up its plans to open stores in India after the Indian government has not lifted limits on foreign investment in the retail sector. Benefits of CSR in the local area arise due to government, suppliers, brand reputation, employees, etc., or far-flung, such as consumers.

War on News?

In the last day or so, all the news boxes have mysteriously disappeared from my namesake neighborhood, around Mass. and Huntington. No more Improper Bostonian, no more South End News, no more Bay Windows, all banished from their convenient locations by Symphony Hall, in front of Whole Foods, and near the Green Line entrances.

The Blame Game is Killing Us! (USA)

THE BLAME GAME IS KILLING US! (USA)

It's so easy to point fingers
Play the blame game

He died, she died
Shot dead

So

Kill some cops
Shoot for the head
Remember your name
Gain some fame

It's easy to find a target
to hate

Easy to use race to bait

Blame the President,
Governors, Mayors
The Police

Agree Disagree
He said She said

Our country is at war
Us - Them mind set

No Peace

Yell, scream, rant, rave,
Comment, post, write, boast

All Lives Matter

All Lives Matter

BY Deb CH 2014

You may think I deserved to die
My family still will mourn, grieve, and cry

Do they have the right
Or just pretend I did not exist

Innocent victims in harms way
Never to live another day

Such a damn shame we say

Police running to save a life
Soldiers facing war and strife

SWAT in the midst of a hostage crisis
CIA, FBI chasing ISIS

First responders on the scene
Firefighters in the heat and flame

Someone died, now who to blame

Ferguson for our Turkeys

As we observe the unrest in Ferguson and the protests spreading across the nation I can't help but bear witness to the lack of concern for the Turkey genocide celebrated by you, America's illegal occupants. Some 400 years ago several true Americans shared a meal of our feathered ancestors with some squatting, starving Euro-trash. Since that fateful day over a billion of our brethren have been sacrificed to celebrate the theft of our lands and its pagan holiday of thanksgiving. So as you lift that drumstick to that pasty double chin you'd better look over your shoulder. Turkey's are back.

God Sees Red

God Sees Red

Look at my people, my created
Killing, angry, murder at the drop of a pin

Some don't realize the trouble they're in

Jealousy, revenge, hate

Using guns
Hastening the death rate

I look at my children
I see red

Their blood - red
My anger - red

My Son's Blood - red
Shed for their sins

My tears I shed
When I can't welcome them in

If my people who are called by my name
Would humble themselves, pray, turn from their Gun Violence ways......

Shots Fired!

SHOTS FIRED....

Shots fired, shotspotter on, 911, what's goin on?
Tires squeal, bullets fly, oh God I hear a baby cry!

Sirens wail, an old woman frail... falls down...her heart begins to fail.
Police, ambulances, a man, blood on his face, will they live?
Maybe... God's grace.

Curious neighbors gather round, some just stare at the ground.
In some houses lights go out. Now I hear a young man shout
"He shot my brother! I'll find him quick!"...The anger in his face, makes me sick.

Just One Day

Too many guns
bullets flying

Shots fired
dying and crying

So many afraid to walk the streets
prisoners in their own homes

Too many guns
in the wrong hands

Neighborhoods and schools turned into
battle lands

What do we do?
What do we say?

Where is hope for
just one day?

Just one day
without bad news

Just one day
with no one dying

Just one day
with no one crying
over a body
lifeless and still

Death by gunfire
such a bitter pill

ÂżWhere was Trumbull Street in the South End in 1964? Toy factory fire.

According to the map found at http://www.bostonfirehistory.org/newspaperfiretrumbullstreet10021964.pdf
Trumbull street ran between Ivanhoe St. and Newland St. Ivanhoe ran parallel to Tremont St. on the other side of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ivanhoe ran between West Brookline and West Canton. Trumbull was parallel to those two streets and ended at Newland St. to the south.

Yes on 2! The Coalition to Update the Bottle Bill Needs Volunteers!

We need to stop litter and keep Massachusetts clean by spreading the word about the Yes on Question 2 campaign.

The Bottle Bill is the most effective recycling tool we have. Eighty percent of bottles covered by the Bottle Bill’s 5-cent deposit are recycled. Yes on Question 2 would add a bottle deposit to water, sports drinks, tea, juices, and other drinks that were not included in the original bill because they were not popular when the law was passed in 1982.

We need your vote on November 4 to update the Bottle Bill.
