TITLE "HOW CAN WEST HAM UNITED HOSPITALITY IMPROVE ITS COMMUNICATION?" BACKGROUND The club was founded in 1895 as a company team of the Thames Ironworks. In 1900, the club became a limited liability company under the name of West Ham United, this proved to be vital for the progress of the club.

The stadium has continuously been improved and at this moment the stadiums capacity is 30 000. Plans have been accepted and construction of one of the two stands has commenced. Once the new stands have been completed in 2003, the capacity would have increased to 46 000 and Upton Park would be one of the best stadiums in England. The ground is situated in Upton Park, East London and in the heart of one of London's ethnic minority communities. The Hospitality department at West Ham United is continuously improving. The Stadium has approximately thirty bars, kiosks and suites in total.

Risks of Having a Facebook Account. Immediately after the discussion in class regarding Facebook privacy, the first thing I did when I got home from school was to check the limitedness of my Facebook profile to people whom I have no connections with.
The Risks of Having a Facebook Account Immediately after the discussion in class regarding Facebook privacy, the first thing I did when I got home from school was to check the limitedness of my Facebook profile to people whom I have no connections with. I am particularly keen with the privacy settings of my profile in any social networking site I associate my identity and email address with so the privacy check that I engaged in a few weeks ago was just to verify whether or not I have properly safeguarded my Facebook profile. What I did was to sign out from Facebook and search my name as an anonymous individual. I recognized my profile among others whom I shared a name with through my profile picture. What made my name stand out from all the other Gerard Padillas were the university and high school networks which were under my name. I clicked my name and realized that only a larger version of the thumbnail of my current profile picture is further revealed upon clicking my name. I checked some of my friends' profiles and theirs disclosed a few of their friends. This revelation is already quite jeopardous since spammers and people who are up to no good can collect information and also be able to verify assumptions through one's set of friends. Also, the friends who are revealed, especially those who have weak privacy settings, are put in a risk. What really alarmed me was the

OBJECTIVES This report seeks to study the social phenomenon of Short Messaging Service (SMS) and youths in Singapore. The motivation behind this project is due to the increasing number of SMS users especially among the youngsters. This reports not only gives the chronology of how SMS evolved, but also the basic background to SMS in Singapore, explaining the environment, organisations, people and technology involved. The analysis of the pros, cons and social impact of SMS on youths will also be explored. On top of that, a survey will be done to substantiate some of the more important findings. In addition, a case study on SMS and youths in Australia will be discussed, with certain comparing and contrasting to the situation in Singapore. INTRODUCTION The use of mobile phones has gained worldwide popularity with the youth. From the report of mobileYouth 2003, there are currently 239 million youngsters aged 5-24 in 2003 in 20 important markets and they own 104 million mobile phones (a penetration rate of 44%).  Closely integrated with the use of mobile phone is the use of Short Messaging Service (SMS).

I will be looking at different search engines in order to find the information that I am looking for. The information that I am going to be researching is house price data. I'm going to compare 3 search engines to see which one is most appropriate in what I'm looking for. Text based search engine: For this section I'm going to use Google as the text based search engine. In my personal experience many people use Google as their primary search engine. I'm going to search house price data in Google's search bar and see what results I get back from it. The index returned 125,000,000 hits relating to my topic. Directory search engine: For the directory search, I will be using the live search to see what results I get from the topic that I am researching. The results from the search came back with 67,200,000 hits relating to my topic. Meta search engine: For this section I'm going to use ask.com search engine. Ask.com is a little different from the other two search engines because it allows you to actually type a question in e.g. 'how do you build a website' this will return a list of reference related to building a website which I feel is good. I'm going to research the same topic as I did in the other two search engines and see what results I get. The result from this search engine is that I received 4,477,000 hits relating to house price data. Comparing my results

Knowledge and understanding of Word Software A professional looking document is more likely to communicate effectively with the audience when the information presented is shown in a way that any one that needs to read it will be able to understand it. Professional documents are usually well structured and appropriately styled so that they communicate effectively to the target audience. To ensure that the correct structure and style's are used it may be relevant to research into the styles that have been used in past documents for the company. The styles that are used are more than likely to be a theme of colour's that are used throughout all documents within in the company. When creating a word document it is important to communicate the information that is needed clearly and accurately to the audience.

Safety precautions I. Beware high pressure air can kill, High-pressure air can reach an explosive velocity and can easily maim, blind or kill. II. When working on high pressure air systems: II.II Ensure the system being worked on is isolated or the whole system is totally drained of air. II.III Secure any movable components. II.IV Never disconnect pressurised airlines. Hydraulic fluid used, seals to be used and identification In the system I have designed I would recommend using synthetic hydraulic fluid. Mainly because of its fire resistant properties but it also has a very good operating temperature range. This fluid is used mainly on modern aircraft because of these reasons, which is why I have also chosen this type. Synthetic hydraulic fluid, also known as Phosphate ester based fluid, is identified by its green, purple or amber
Discuss the view that "We learn most about the meaning of nonverbal messages by studying them in relationship to verbal messages."
Discuss the view that "We learn most about the meaning of nonverbal messages by studying them in relationship to verbal messages." (Tubbs & Moss 2002) Richard Mark Wyatt 09/11/2004 Interpersonal Communication Skills BA (Hons) Communication and Media LEVEL C Communication can be described as a "social activity in which people create and exchange meanings in response to the reality they experience." Gill and Adams (1981). Therefore, communication is a valuable and interesting activity that every single person on this planet takes part in. Non Verbal Communication (NVC) is a set of skills and functions that aid in forming language. As their name suggests, these are non-verbal skills and we are totally un-aware that we do them. The amount of NVC that a given person puts into a conversation varies dependant on the situation. There are many elements to NVC such as gesture, eye contact, posture, paralinguistics, facial expressions, proxemics and dress. To properly answer the question, it is important to be aware of all of these features and what they mean. Simple features such as gesture, eye contact, facial expressions and posture all play a part in emphasis to speech. The way in which someone moves their hands to express their emotions, hold eye contact with someone dependant on their mood and the way in which a person holds their body during a conversation is critical.
