6. A Brief Analysis of Jamal Khawajas article, Workplace Stress
Desc: This 4-page undergraduate paper analyses the article "Workplace Stress" by Jamal Khawaja, and notes that Khawaja's article is, overall, a good introduction to the topic of technologically-related workplace stress. Khawaja basic argument is that the computer technology inherent in office environments to disenfranchises workers, generating stress. While this argument is persuasive, it would be even more so if Khawaja considered other forms of technology, which produce differing forms of stress in the workplace. Khawaja does not really consider, for example, computer production in industry, or computer surveillance, or computer databases of clients, ech of which may impact employee stress in unique ways. The key problem with Khawaja's article however, is his answer to the stress problem in the workplace. Khawaja suggests flexible working hours, increased telecommuting opportunities, greater diversity of job duties, and clearer guidelines governing the use of technology in the workplace as ways to empower employees and reduce stress. Many of Khawaja's suggestions have the potential to generate more stress in the workplace. Nevertheless, Khawaja's article has the potential to be very useful, especially regarding his casual reference to ethical implications of computer use. Khawaja's brief mention of ethics has the potential to raise another discourse, one which suggests that it is the use of technology - and not just the technology itself - which creates the most stress, largely due to ethical dilemmas.

Employers have tended to argue that many of the accommodations requested by those arguing for disability rights are not reasonable because of the financial cost involved while those who advocate making workplaces accessible argue that not only is it the right thing to do but that employers will benefit in the end because they will gain the expertise - and loyalty - of qualified workers (Rogers etal., 1997).

99. Advertising on the Internet.
Desc: Internet advertising has unwisely been used as a business model for a great number of dot.com companies. While it holds great promise and serves as a useful adjunct to a solid business plan, it is not a stand-alone revenue model. Most companies have realized this the hard way (through bankruptcy), but some companies got the message early enough to diversify their revenue streams before it was too late. For advertisers, Internet advertising offers a very unique and interactive way to focus and sell to a very defined target group. For consumers, Internet advertising can be useful because it facilitates transactions and makes shopping easy. For those using it as a 'raison d'etre' for business, however, the benefits are not enough to create solid and sustainable businesses. 10 pgs. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
100. Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967.
Desc: America, the concepts upon which it is founded, and American business seem, at times, to be very different, independently sovereign nations. The general America is a land of democratic freedom built upon ideals of equality, opportunity, freedom, and independence. American business, on the other hand, is a land of dictatorships, persecution, exclusion, intolerance, crime, discrimination, ruthlessness, manipulation, and hate. In order to reconcile these two very different structures that exist side by side in the American psyche, our government over time has enacted laws that are intended to contain, regulate, and control business. But, businesses are what provide politicians with the bulk of their campaign finances, and as such are not to be trifled with. So, rather than taking on businesses by themselves, politicians band together to present a unified front and, when the find that there are differences between the American ideal and the reality of American business, they enact laws to address that problem. One such act, among many, is the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967. This act, like all others that restrict business' ability to do whatever it wants, has met with stiff resistance from that front. Essentially, the law makes illegal the firing, denial of employment or benefits to any person solely upon the basis of their age. It is the purpose of this paper to explore this Act and to examine it from its inception, application, effect, and the court cases / decisions surrounding it.
