these concerns and as a result created an even larger public relations challenge for themselves by not
internalizing it equivalent to a threat to profitability. As with any crisis that gets ignored, the critics only

Why Schultz tuned out and sold out the Sonics
The National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Seattle Supersonics and WNBA’s Seattle Storm franchises were recently sold to an investor group based in Oklahoma City. This transaction has caused a public relations nightmare for the Supersonics and its fans do not approve of the sale. The Supersonics franchise was established in 1967 and has been a staple of the NBA since. Howard Shultz, owner of Starbucks, became frustrated with the Sonics’ recent on court performances as the team struggled this past season with a 35-47 record and missing the playoffs. As an entrepreneur, Schultz was determined to turn the Supersonics back into the

complexity of social exclusion, its variation across outstanding dimensions, processes, and areas of social relations, and dimensions, have made it very difficult to define as well as to measure scientifically. Many approaches make efforts to capture multidimensionality of exclusion, but, apart from unemployment and low income they do not agree regarding which dimensions are causal or outstanding. The European researchers examine less tangible properties like insufficient participation in civic life, customary community and family activities, poor future expectations, homelessness, poor education, and poor health. Financial uncertainty is also considered a measure of exclusion from private and public

Question: What speech rights does one have on privately owned property?
When it comes to private property, individuals' First Amendment speech rights do not always come out on top. The First Amendment doesn't give you the right to engage in free-speech activities on private property unless you own or lease the property, or the owner has given you permission to use the property for speech. Because private property is not government-owned, restrictions on individuals' free speech rights on private property do not involve state action. For example, in Hudgens v.

In less than three decades «multiculturalism» has become a world immediately recognized by policy makers, social commentators, academics and the general public in Western industrial countries, if not elsewhere. Britain is not an exception. In this case it is necessary to discuss pluses and minuses of multicultural society. The UK has welcomed newcomers for centuries. It is a mixture of diverse ethnic groups, each with their own distinct culture and sometimes their own language or religion. In my point of view, there are more negative sides of multiculturalism in the UK than benefits.
