Human Services Area of Interest

Human Services Area of Interest
Human services is a complex field, incorporating multiple areas, including clinical social work, counseling, criminal justice, disaster and crisis management, family problem interventions, public health, and social policy analysis and planning. Each area began with a few people who had the common goal of helping others in their community.
For example, in 1844 a group of young men formed the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA) to meet the social needs of a community. The YMCA began as a center for young Christian men to find healthy and morally upright activities to fill their free time. It has evolved over time to be an international network of popular community centers open to all ages and genders. The organization also works with a number of human service organizations that support healthy communities.
As you prepare for the Discussion, reflect on an area of human services that is of interest to you. Consider human services organizations that are within your area of interest and how they have evolved.
With these thoughts in mind:
The assignment: Discuss your specific area of interest within human services, including three reasons for your interest. Finally, describe one human services organization within your area of interest. Include a brief history of the organization’s evolution.

Compare and contrast an element of dubai planning policy and practice with the equivalent aspect in Scotland, and make recommendations for the improvement of both systems.
1. Compare and contrast an element of dubai planning policy and practice with the equivalent aspect in Scotland, and make recommendations for the improvement of both systems.
Each student should choose a particular area of policy and practice (element) for comparison. The areas selected should be narrow enough for a detailed comparison and in-depth analysis. You can focus, for example, on affordable housing policies and provision, regeneration of run down residential areas, waterfront development, promotion of economic development etc. You should avoid selecting a very wide area (e.g. the national land use planning system) and therefore making very general journalist style observations.
Your essay should include the following discussion and analysis:
• A short justification of the area for comparison: You need to be relatively familiar with the specific area you selected for your essay in both countries, and give the reasons why such a comparative study is beneficial.
• Brief discussion of planning systems in both countries: This should be a comprehensive but short and concise description of the policy and practice in each country. This should be based on a wide range of sources rather than drawn from only one or two books. Recent journal articles, reports on the topic must be used to get an up-to-date picture.
• Systematic comparison of your selected element between the two countries: After the description of each system, you must make comparative analysis by drawing together the major differences and similarities. A table form of presentation could be useful in presenting the comparative findings. In comparative analysis, you must avoid superficial discussion at the very general level, and should consider the impact and influence of different political, economic, cultural and historical backgrounds.
• Recommendations for the improvement of one or both systems: It is important to remember that a particular policy of planning may work well in one country, but not in another, because of the differences in political, social and economic context. Recommendations based on comparative studies usually point to improvement or adjustment rather than direct copy of one system to another.

Report question: Study Skills Module from October 2013
The Olympic and Paralympic Games were held in London in Summer 2012. One of the major changes to delivery of the Games that has emerged in the last 10 years is the concept of sustainability. In the report that was published by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to show why London was selected as the venue for the 2012 games, the sustainability plan was mentioned as an important factor in the success (http://www.olympic.org/Documents/Commissions_PDFfiles/SportAndEnvironment/Sustainability_Through_Sport.pdf accessed 17.09.2013). The strapline used by the 2012 organisers was “Inspire a Generation” and this too relates to issues of legacy and sustainability. It is now more than 12 months since the events of the Olympic and Paralympic Games and therefore a good time to consider whether the UK managed to deliver a sustainable games.
Starting from the IOC report on recent Olympic and Paralympic Games, which includes London 2012 sustainability (http://www.olympic.org/sustainability accessed 17.09.2013) and the recent case studies on sustainability and the London 2012 Olympics (http://www.cslondon.org/sustainable-games/ accessed 17.09.2013) write an analytical business report on the success of the London 2012 Olympic games in terms of sustainability.
In your report (which must be written in business report format) you need to cover the following topics:
• An executive summary which gives a brief overview of the argument in your report including key findings and conclusions
• A brief overview analysis of the sustainability plan put forward by the organisers of the London Olympics, including all aspects of sustainability that were suggested
• A detailed review of the delivery of one of the aspects of the sustainability of the London 2012 Games. This should include BOTH academic perspectives and news perspectives
• A short opinion survey of the aspect of sustainability chosen for detailed review, carried out by you from a sample of students at GSM London
• A conclusion which includes critical evaluation of the sustainability of the London 2012 Games based on the evidence that you have gathered both from your primary and secondary research, focusing on theaspect chosen for detailed review

CORPORATE RESISTANCE TO DODD-FRANK LEGISLATION

CORPORATE RESISTANCE TO DODD-FRANK LEGISLATION
The Securities and Exchange Commission attempted to develop regulations with regards to shareholder proxy access following the legal authorization to do so in the Dodd-Frank legislation. The Business Roundtable and other business groups challenged the SEC rule-making and the Federal Court ruled against the SEC. The SEC did not appeal the court decision, but enacted a different and less comprehensive rule regarding proxy access that the court did not rule against and therefore was allowed to go into effect. Since then some shareholders have tried to achieve proxy access in their respective corporations.
The SEC has now proposed rules regarding how corporations report executive pay to shareholders. Dodd-Frank allowed the SEC to enact rules that would direct corporations to compute a ratio of executive pay to average worker pay. The Business Roundtable and other business groups oppose this rule and are thinking out bringing another lawsuit or trying to convince Congress to revisit Dodd-Frank and throw out this provision.
Please read all the attaching documents first. The paper should focus on: What lessons should the Roundtable have learned from its experience with proxy access? How should it apply these lessons to the new struggle over the pay ratios? What kind of opposition can it expect in this new struggle? What are the best arguments the Roundtable can use? What are the best arguments from the opposition that it must be able to address in making its political case against the rule?
