Wind as an Important Source of Non-Conventional Energy
Global pressure is on the rise to embrace sustainable energy sources which are also convenient in terms of economic considerations. With many industries coming up and increased need of energy supply thereof, more inventions into power production are introduced. Many energy sources are available across the world and wind energy has, in the contemporary days, gained popularity. Wind energy production dates back to 1970’s upon development of wind turbines by NASA. These were to be used for the purpose of power production. It has emerged that wind power generation has many advantages compared to a number of other power generation means (Janardhan & Fesmire, 2011 pg 1 p 2).

Compare the Social Political and Business Cultures around the World and How They Relate To Doing Business on a Multinational Level
The social and cultural influences on international marketing are immense. Differences in social conditions, religion and material culture all affect consumers’ perceptions and patterns of buying behavior. As a result, this area is crucial in determining the extent to which consumers across the world are analogous or diverse. It also establishes the likelihood for world branding and homogeny. Cultural differences, and especially language differences, have a significant impact on the way people use a product may, in a market, the product’s brand name and its advertising campaign. Operating effectively, in different countries, requires the recognition that there may be considerable differences, in the different regions. On the other hand, some market analysts argue that there are visible signs that social and cultural differences are becoming less of a barrier that was the previous case. However, it is important not to confuse globalization of brands with the homogenization of cultures. There are a large number of global brands, but even these have to manage cultural differences between and within national boundaries. Read more

Medication Safety and Impact of Medication Errors on the Healthcare Industry
The institute of medicine (IOM) in 2006 reported that between 380,000 and 450,000 of preventable adverse drug events (ADEs) are experienced in hospitals annually, with the largest proportion of events related to prescribing and administration of medication. Despite the high number and intensity of the training and subsequent vetting that medical professionals undergo, yet healthcare is the most dangerous sector in the world. This state requires an observer to consider the level of complexity of medical practice in order to have a deep insight into this concern. Cima and Clarke (2012) argue that a frontline medical practitioner encounters new medications, new procedures, new research evidence and new technology to integrate in practice. Patients, on the other hand, are increasingly becoming complicated requiring a proportionate increase in diversity of health care workers. Nevertheless, delivering dependable care has never been more challenging than it is now. Read more
