Harley Davidson Motor Company: Enterprise Software Selection Harley-Davidson motorcycles are as much legend as product. The company enjoys intensely loyal customers, and nearly as loyal employees.

The company fell on hard times in the early 1980s and even flirted with bankruptcy. Management did a turnaround in the mid- 1980s, however, resulting in a financially sound public company today.
A Summary of Radical Idea In Andrew J. Cherlin’s article, American Marriage in Transition, he has brought to attention that modern day marriage is not the same definition as it was sixty years ago or even longer. It used to be that the men would go to work and be the bread winner of the household as the wife stayed home and did chores and care for the children but that is not the case anymore. He uses the term “deinstitutionalized” (Cherlin 402) as “the weakening of the social norms that define people’s behavior in a social institution such as marriage” (402) to show how couples, whether they be straight or gay, have changed drastically over the years with three types of marriages: institutionalized, companionate, and individualistic and in addition how people’s perspectives have changed. Institutionalized marriage is basically the traditional marriage we see in old movies and T.V. shows where the husband goes out to work and is the main bread winner and the wife stayed home doing chores because they didn’t have much education and in reality they did not need one as they were being taken care however, the change of labor and childbearing in the late 1970’s undermined the institutionalized basis of marriage (402).
By the time I am 80 I definitely want to be retired, I would like to have finished paying off my home, living without any debt, and being able to spend my time doing the things I like with the people I love. Of course, the subject of death comes up and my wife and I hope and pray that we are living out our golden years with each other. I know that pursuing my degree will be a thing of the past, as I should graduate in 2011 but I also plan on continuing my education and obtaining my Masters Degree. When I finally retire, I plan on having had a career that began as teaching special needs children, moved in to physical education and adaptive PE for special needs kids and then eventually moving in the administrative field within a school district. My retirement will come when I feel that I have served my purpose and made a difference in hundreds of children’s lives.
Without the changing role of women, things that we have in everyday life as American’s could possibly not exist. Women not only were more help to the family, but they were helping rebuild the nation. As a whole, women helped clean up the process of urbanization and immigration, helped literature grow, and helped change the ongoing problem of women’s suffrage. After the Civil War, many people from other countries started immigrating to America. As a result, urbanization quickly started going out of control due to lack of communication, too many people being forced into slums, and many other reasons.
While men have increasingly been faced with the same choices, women's continuing greater responsibility for household tasks, including child care, means that the choices are of greater consequence” (Teachman,1989). After a few years, I realized that without a college education I would never be able to advance in my career or be able to provide for my family the way I wanted to. Returning to school was a must but I still doubted that I would have the time and the money. It had been a few years since I had been in high school and I was afraid that I could not remember some of the things I needed to
Who is benefiting from outsourcing? Investor, shareholders, and American consumers profit from outsourcing. However, the countries that the jobs are outsourced to benefit the most, for example, housing jobs for foreign companies boost the economy by increasing employment at the expense of millions of American jobs.

Intro: Women leadership. Just the thought is something that many people still find hard to support, and others are actively fighting for everyday. Our society is one made up of millions of different types of people, and yet it seems it always comes down to just two factors : Male or Female. In a world where gender is everything, and gender roles are stressed from the day we enter the world, it is often to hard to break out of the stereotypes placed on ourselves and prove that all of us are, gender aside, simply human.
