At a Glance...

    'At a glance' is the expression of the style, synergies in a dynamic combination of cultures. The style is something in the background, but, only a few seconds and the first impression can be long lasting and possibly crucial. Not the only appearance has a meaning, but what can inspire, motivate and lead.

    By trusting one's glance, perhaps the seconds or the minutes is enough to explore the idea - is a case in our time!

A Global State of Peace: Is it Possible?

War is a product, interaction between the cohesion and its positive role in aggression. Cohesive groups and nations can maintain the competitive edge, pursue the longer-term goals, and be successful during the downturns. I'm against the war and believe that the peaceful outcome is possible.

The Goals from Aggressive to the Irrelevant: No Social Prospective in Ukraine.

 The system and most of its members work inefficiently by setting no goals at all or goals with a low or no social relevance. In the other words, the people with the irrelevant goals inflate the society. The plethora of this phenomenon is coming from the various fields of life, as inflation of the diplomats in the graduates market, the colonels in army and ‘the lieutenants of reserve’ who skipped the army service, politicians with the business-specific and socially insignificant goals in the Government of Ukraine.


   

 For a long time, the Ukrainian society had been evolving from the framework of the matrix management system, for example in the USSR the vertical command was active; the lift along the vertical power ladder was reachable mostly through the close horizontal relationships derived from the inner and the limited circles of members of the society. This model evolved into an atavism in the present day Ukraine as the lateral part of the matrix system which is coming from the family relations, the financial and the political circles is playing a crucial role to determine the social status. The social loafing is becoming usual, and the discrimination philosophy of the individuals.The individuals interpret the SMART goals in a way that the social benefits, even the 'size of the Ukraine would better fit their personal demands.' 

    The social loafer very often looks quite specific, measurable and timely, but not SMART because of the self-engineered irrelevance. This irrelevance is progressing with the growing complexity of the tasks to face. The increasing numbers of interactions in the society stipulate the growing amount of the burnout and stress. Overloads with information, fraudulent practices, deception, returns skepticism and appreciation of the trusted recommendations and connections.  Only the systemic approach can decrease the complexity of the matrix management system.Trusted relations and the shared values develop the microenvironments necessary for the lacking systemic approach which can eliminate the social loafing.

    For example the PPortal comments on the loafers with the specific experience:  'they are not legislators but the businesspeople, more correctly, the villages-in-business who had joined the Supreme Council of Ukraine." The other example depicts those as the measurable people; the civil university graduates decide to pay extra for the military curriculum to become the lieutenant of the reserve and to avoid the obligatory army services. The ‘timely social loafers’ are the most aggressive and common by simply discriminating the aged people and those with the disabilities: most job offers provide the reservation ‘this job offer is limited for those under 50 years old.’

    These examples prove that the system and most of its members work inefficiently by setting no goals at all or goals with a low or no social relevance. In the other words, the people with the irrelevant goals inflate the society. The plethora of this phenomenon is coming from the various fields of life, as inflation of the diplomats in the graduates market, the colonels in the army and ‘the lieutenants of reserve’ who skipped the army service, politicians with the business-specific and socially insignificant goals in the Government of Ukraine.  

Social Loafing in Ukraine: Balancing on the Verge of Discrimination.

    By encouraging, the social loafing of the younger generation the State of Ukraine is participating in the social loafing itself. The pinnacle and the result of this phenomenon are the age discrimination of the qualified military service entrants of 50 years and older. 
    The new army units need a synergy when the two men can produce the better result than of each of them separately; the adage "too many cooks spoil the broth" comes true here. The social loafing of the military agencies and populism in the civil agencies account for the situation, leading to the degenerative phenomenon in Ukrainian society resulting in a formula 1+1=0.

    The former Minister of Finances of Ukraine, Natalia Yaresko on her Facebook page disclosed (Yaresko, Jan 27, 2016) an across–the–board salary increase for the military servicemen in Ukraine. In 2016, the wages of the soldiers increased by 200% and to Anti-Terrorist Soldiers by 300% vs. the similar period in 2015. Now the average wage of the former category is $265 and of the later $389. Nevertheless, the Ukrainian Army is balancing on a verge of social loafing and discrimination of its army servicepersons.

    The expected combatants have a different motivation, diverse background as experience, skills, knowledge, education, etc. Shall they have the similar level of salaries? The team dynamics is passing through the phases of forming, storming, norming, and performing stages. The one-size-fits-all approach can increase the gap between the forming and the performing stages (Mind Tools Editorial Team, n.d.) of the units’ formation.

    That is the surface problem, but the in-depth problem analysis (Table 1) shows the State is taking on the role of the shyster, discriminating the contract combatants by the age principle.

Table 1: Disparity of the Benefits and Opportunities in the Ukrainian Army

Benefits

No Benefits

1.      The Army contract overrides the mandatory army service.

After taking the mandatory service (20-27 years old), a candidate can fix a contract to serve in the professional army, which is the same as of the freshmen.

2.      Military servicemen up to 30 yr. have a right to receiving the free higher education.

People after 30 do not have such a privilege.

3.      If one has a University education, several months training is sufficient for an upward move in career to the rank of the army officer.

Age barriers for the people with the University education after 30.

4.      Granted pension to the individuals with the military work after 25 years (in a peaceful time).

No benefits to the people who came to the army after the age of 35 years old.

5.      Relatively high salary, which consists of the basic wages and a premium.

Relatively high military salary consists of the low basic pay and a bulk of the premium. Premium cannot serve to the pension provision.

6.      Benefits of a receiving a grant of an apartment in a perspective of 10-20 years.

No such the opportunity after 40 or 50 years old.

7.      Young people after 20-27 years old have an obligation of the 1.5 compulsory army service.

Many people 50+ had discharged their two years army service after 18: much better training.

8.      An opportunity to set contracts for the different terms.

After 45, available only the contracts to the end of the Anti-Terrorist Period, without a right to terminate the contract earlier or to continue it later.

    A military unit is different from the civil team or a group where the “storming phase” is implicit. After the “storming phase,” comes the norming stage. For example, the entrants at 18 can skip the mandatory 1.5 years of military service receiving the highest benefits referred to as 100%. 

    At the same time, the Ukrainian Army discriminates the mature people with the several university educations, army service history and the flagship experience in one of the fields by entirely cutting off the pension expectations, social, term selecting, career, and salary benefits. To be noted that for some professional army entrants after 40 – 50, the salary is not the element of enrichment as they can earn the equal or higher amount throughout their civilian jobs.

    By encouraging, the social loafing of the younger generation the State of Ukraine is participating in the social loafing itself. The pinnacle and the result of this phenomenon are the age discrimination of the qualified military service entrants after 50 years old. The new army units need a synergy when the two men can produce the better result than of each of them separately; the adage "too many cooks spoil the broth" comes true here.

The Refugees Definition: Ukraine & Syria.

posted Feb 12, 2016, 3:33 PM by Olexiy Fesenko   [ updated Feb 12, 2016, 3:36 PM ]

Why the People in Ukraine and Syria are the ‘source of sovereignty or power’ failed to prove their capacity?


Jumping the gun into the globalization process is feet out of the ground for the many, the long path of migration from Ukraine to Russia and from Syria to the European countries.

Therefore, the updated definition of the term ‘refugee’ can stand for the people having no adaptation to the needs of the global markets.


    The Syrian Constitution of 1973 "stipulates that the people are the ultimate source of national sovereignty" (United Nations, 2004, p.5). According to the Article 5 of Constitution of Ukraine "The people are the bearers of sovereignty and the only source of power in Ukraine" (Constitutional Court of Ukraine, 1996, Ch.5). Both the Syrian and the Ukrainian Constitutions defined the people as the source of sovereignty or the bearers of sovereignty and source of power. Can these sources flow in the Age of Globalization without the feather in their cap?

    In our time, the skills are the subjects of outsourcing and can easily flow from the smaller countries providers to the well-developed global economies. The only thing that you need is the Internet connection, computer, and your skills. Globalization is the time, opportunity and the condition, when the flows of capital, goods and competencies can build up into the life balance and security. But, being proclaimed as a source of something, as the grass roots are not enough to meet the modern and real-time demands.

    What skills do these people need to serve the global market, instead of the gray area? – The competitive skills, of course! Regrettably the ‘talent pool’ in Ukraine and Syria has an adverse correlation to the globalization process is still in the bottleneck fighting the tide against the flows of talent, skills, and knowledge.

    Jumping the gun into the globalization process is feet out of the ground for the many, the long path of migration from Ukraine to Russia and from Syria to the European countries.

    Therefore, the updated definition of the term ‘refugee’ can stand for the people having no adaptation to the needs of the global markets.

Samsung GALAXY Studio

Why did Samsung not offer the online virtual 3-d tours similar to GALAXY Studio
? How to test the variety of the smartphone models on the net?


     The customers look at the variety of mobile phones, high-contact environment, light displays that constitute the servicescape. To impress by the virtual tours, Samsung would create its own 3-d ambient conditions, with the virtual layouts to test functionality, find descriptions and open displays. That virtual environment can let the customers feel the brick-and-mortar displays being not so necessary. In this case, the retailers would save on volume for the physical displays.
