    Response Needed

    Please respond to the following with 200 words blake :

    Professor Thomas G. Paterson thought that President Kennedy helped precipitate the Cuban missile crisis with his support for the failed Bay of Pigs invasion in April 1961 and the continued attempts by the CIA to kill Fidel Castro. On the other end of the spectrum we have historian Robert Weisbrot who argues that President Kennedy acted as a rational thinker and leader who was conciliatory towards the Soviet Union in resolving the Cuban missile crisis. During this time period there was already intense tension between the Russian and American people. It was the era of the Cold War so everyone was being politically careful as to avoid nuclear disaster. In my personal opinion I think J.F.K did a fine job at avoiding the worst possible situation which was nuclear war. He was able to inform the American people of what was going on all while conducting negotiation with the Soviet Union who was not our best friend during this time period. The way he handled the situation was superb, no war was ever declared and no bombs were ever dropped. He was able to avoid the disaster through his use of words. I think more people should study this topic and become aware that nuclear was has been avoided with the use of words.

    African History Research

    the subject to write about Abakuá of Cuba

    Abakuá is believed to have come from the regions between South-west of Cameroon and South-east of Nigeria. They are commonly referred to as Ego, and they practice ñañigos as their religion. In Cuba, they are well known their cultural practices in music and dance, and celebrations. For example, on the Day of the Three Kings, they partake in Carnival through music and dance throughout streets (Román, 2002). They have their own distinct music style which sets them apart. As a matter of fact, the combination of Abakuá music and Bantu of Congo’s music is what is called rhumba. Members of this community are very secretive, and thus very little is known about their language and other specific traditions. However, it is believed that their language is influenced by the Ibibio of Nigeria. Over time, their traditions and cultural practices have been influenced by Cuba’s style. Thus, they are a reflection of both African and Cuban roots. They also have distinct beliefs. For example, they believe that human beings can transform in form for the purpose of spying on an enemy (Mason, 2015). They even believe that human beings can be transformed into leopards for this same purpose.

    The War of 1812 is rightly called the American second war of independence because the war finally led to the British removing all of their troops from the soil of the United States.[1] The removal of the troops represented the British acknowledgement of the victory and sovereignty of the United States.[2]

    Human resource

    QUESTION 1: What does Strategic HR mean?

    In Chapter 1, we talk about the role HR plays within today’s organizations. It’s logical is it not? Today, the most valuable asset a company can have is its employees! Years ago while pursuing our MBAs, we took courses in Inventory Management, Production, and Plant Operations. But then twenty years ago our economy was based upon manufacturing and a company’s production capacity and inventory were of prime importance. Today, we’re in the information age and employees, especially creative employees with innovative ideas and technological skills, are paramount.

    Twenty years ago, an HRM was little more than an administrator, someone to process the application form and ensure the new employee’s beneficiary form was completed correctly. Today, HRM’s are strategic partners in every thriving business enterprise developing policies and programs to support the mission of the business enterprise. Be sure to read and understand the information presented in Table 2.1 on pages 3 and 4 of your text.

    In your own words, discuss what it means to be a strategic business partner. Why is it important for the HR strategy to be aligned with the business strategy? What skills are important for HR managers to have to be able to effectively add strategic value to the organization?

    Don’t forget to read over and then respond to a colleague’s ideas.

    Be sure to include citations from at least two sources you used to develop your responses!

    QUESTION 2: Thoughts about HR Functions in today’s world

    The field of human resource management has changed significantly over the past several decades. Make note of the HR functions identified in the readings and reflect carefully on the responsibilities of today’s HRMs. From your reading, as well as your own observations and/or experience (if applicable), please describe how the human resource function has changed over the last decade or so. Do you anticipate any further changes to the human resource management role in the near or distant future? If so, please explain your rationale.

    A minimum of 2 references for each question/response.
