This video is a session of the Churchill club, in which Jon Rubinstein and Paula Jacobs are interviewed about the future of wireless technology. The video is a very light hearted and quite funny. Both men have engineering degrees in electrical engineering. Paul is the CEO and chairman of Qualcomm while Jon was one of the instrumental people in designing the IPod. After the initial bios and backgrounds of the gentlemen the interviewer starts to find out their thoughts on past wireless technology. One of the men takes out there cell phone from 1998 and compares it to the smart phone that they carry today. It is quite interesting to see the comparison and the fact that while larger and slower the phone could still access some of the same information. The gentleman was able to find a sushi place in Maui, while sitting on the beach. While common place today, this is something most people would view as unheard of thirteen years ago but it was possible. The men go on to discuss many of the issues facing the tech and wireless world today. They discuss problems, and what the future might hold for the wireless world. This video really allows one to hear an insiders view on the world of technology. Both men agree that the biggest problems facing the wireless world are that bandwidth and power can not keep up with processing and functions of the mobile devices. The problem facing bandwidth is that the cellular companies are running out of room in the spectrum allotted to them by the FCC. It is estimated that the percentage of mobile data traffic generated by video will double every year until 2015 (Mack 2011). When that happens, wireless video will generate two-thirds of all mobile data traffic. The problem facing the power side is longevity of battery or power use. The more processing power or larger display a device has drains the battery life at a more rapid pace. This quicker loss of battery life is something most users do not want on their smart phones. Until some new concept or alternative power source is found this maybe one of the biggest limiting factors in wireless technology. There is currently a wireless way of charging some utilizing inductance. The only draw back with this technology is that it needs to be practically right next to the charger base. Solar power is and option for wireless power, however it is not efficient enough yet. There is a lack of panel technology and better power storage. The interviewer brings up the topic of the Star Trek tricorder device and poses the question to Jon and Paul, “How close are we to perfecting this technology in real life?” The tricorder is an indispensable tool used to scan various objects, life forms, or even the air itself to find out if it is breathable. While there is an app on smart phones that make it work like a tricorder, it has network analyzer, solar activity, it uses GPS to give exact latitude and longitude, a metal detector, but it is a long way off from being a true tricorder. The gentlemen do touch on one concept of a new medical device that is being developed. This device is able to scan a patient and find out what is medically wrong with them. The device would then escalate the person who is scanning to the correct level of care, whether it is a nurse, or a doctor, or even a specialist. While this new medical device is not technically a tricorder it does have its practical uses. It would allow under developed countries with little medical coverage access to doctors and information that could really save lives. This is probably on reason X Prize Foundation is offering a ten million dollar prize for any one who develops such a device (Anthony). This would be taking the wireless world to a whole new level. Many other devices would surely spring form this one. Just look at the IPOD and cell phone have changed other aspects of…
demonstrated in all my work. I believe all students should attempt to broaden their life skills through extracurricular activities in and outside school. I personally try my hardest to develop as many life skills as I can through various activities and clubs. I have also gained experience from taking part in a schoolwork experience project at Barclays Canary Wharf.

Bobby Seale in Oakland, California, two years previously, the group took as its first tasks the protection of the city's sizable native community from a pattern of rampant police abuse and the creation of programs for jobs, housing, and education" (Churchill 243). The meeting by this group of individuals was to combat the local problems facing the native communities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. The original organization that emerged from these early planning sessions was named the Concerned Indians…
From Mahatma Gandhi to Winston Churchill to Martin Luther King, there are as many leadership styles as there are leaders. Fortunately, businesspeople and psychologists have developed useful and simple ways to describe the main styles of leadership, and these can help aspiring leaders understand which styles they should use.
So, whether you manage a team at work, captain a sports team, or lead a major corporation, which approach is best? Consciously, or subconsciously, you'll probably use some of…
can notice four types of leaders:
1. Authoritarian (9 on task 1 on people)
2. Team leader (9 on task 9 on people)
3. Country club (1 on task 9 on people)
4. Impoverished (1 on task 1 on people)
We can define Authoritarian as accomplishing high task with low relationship.
We can define Team leader as accomplishing high task with high relationship.
We can define Country club leader as accomplishing low task with high relationship.
We can define Impoverished as accomplishing low task with low relationship…
he is realizing that the British would continue to venerate the Empire as long as they did not have to see its atrocities with their own eyes. Class-related criticisms were made very clear through more blatant songs, like “Brainwashed” and “Mr. Churchill Says”, which talk about the injustices of the upper classes in the Empire. “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed to so few/ ‘cos they have made our British Empire a better place for me and you/ and this was their finest hour.”13…

marketing of the 1980s and 1990s. Both strategies are primarily defined by the fact that they rely heavily on peer-to-peer communication to spread word of the product and create buzz. However, where Red Bull had to physically plant their product in the club environment (Kumar et al 2005: 5) and at extreme sports events, viral marketing takes less effort in that the “planting of the product” is no longer a physical act, but a virtual one, where the product is featured in for example a Youtube video or…

Winston Churchill described the war as a “massive demand [for] both human and material resources”.
War had traditionally been fought by men on battlefields = WW1 different = communities left behind on the home front to deal with munitions, men and machinery.…
but the question remains. In fact, leadership is many different things to different people in different circumstances. When we think of leadership, we often think first of famous individuals. We may think of great political leaders: Washington, Churchill, Roosevelt. We may think of the leaders of social movements: Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Caesar Chavez. We may think of spiritual leaders: Jesus, Mohammed, Mother Theresa. Do we also include in our definition some of the infamous leaders such as…
