What is meant by amnesty?

Amnesty is a legislative or executive act by which a state restores those who may have been guilty of an offense against it to the positions of innocent people. It includes more than pardon, in as much as it obliterates all legal remembrance of the offense. The word has the same root as amnesia. Amnesty is more and more used to express 'freedom' and the time when prisoners can go free.

In other words, it is more than just forgiving a crime it completely erases the crime as if it never happened, forgetting it in a way.

Why is freedom of association important?

I am assuming that "freedom of association" means that you can choose your friends and workmates however you please. There are probably some situations where denial of this freedom is good. For example, a parent should shield their kids from bad companions.

Personally, I am very glad to have that freedom. However, "freedom" itself is a very difficult idea to define in general. We all have our own ideas of freedom which to us is good. It's other people's ideas of freedom we might not agree with. To be true to yourself, you have to study this carefully and form your own ideas of freedom and which forms are good and therefore, important.

What is a aristocratic government?

Aristocracy, literally 'rule by the golden', refers to government by the best people. In Plato this meant rule by those trained in philosophy (ie: the best educated). Aristocracy is also used to refer to the titled land-owning class in agrarian societies. so an aristocratic government can also mean rule by a small noble and land-owning elite. While aristocracy is an example of oligarchy (government of the few), it is not necessarily the same as oligarchy. Oligarchy to the ancient Greeks, for example, was often interpreted as rule by the rich, and therefore not the same as rule by the 'best' or 'most fit to rule', which is implied by aristocracy.

Aristocratic government has also been used as a metaphor to describe government by other elites. For example, in the late nineteenth century it was common to criticise governments that were seen as dominated by banking elites or trusts as aristocratic.

The Difference Between

What are the differences between public and private policy?

in C++/java if you want to perform data hiding(one of the concept of OOP's) you need to use Private. i.e. only functions in that class or object can use that. public can be used any where in the other program which is not a part of that class.

Private classes are defined in order to increase the security, since in many situations there is no need for others to access the private attributes.


How do you give a new employee a warm welcome?

Were it the 1970's, I'd say welcome them in with a Bloody Mary, a pack of smokes, and a pair of huge sunglasses. But alas, those days are over, although the super shades have regrettably reemerged as fashionable masks.

In my experience, welcomes may vary from a surly hello and total immersion into work the first day, to a thoughtful card and a plant - just make sure they have an office near a window or you'll be perceived as a cruel prankster.

It doesn't take a consultant or a think tank to understand the value of effectively integrating new employees into the workplace. This integration should boost employee performance and possibly even minimize staff turnover, as employees are less likely to leave a welcoming environment.

First, ask yourself what does the new member need to be comfortable and do the job he/she was hired for? There is nothing worse than coming into a new office that is disheveled with no computer access, office supplies, chair, clean desk, or materials to read over in preparation for work.

To avoid this situation, the welcoming process really needs to begin once the person accepts the position. Supervisors should develop a notification system so that everyone from information technology to facilities maintenance can ensure new staff members have what they need to do the job when they arrive on the first day.

We can learn from our men and women in uniform here, as this is something the military does very well. Prior to a member going to a new assignment, they are handed a welcome package containing information about their job tasks and the local area so they can prepare for their first days at work. You can do the same.

In the packet of information, try to address the questions a new employee might have. The first is, where is everything? To answer this, include a map of the building's interior if available. If not, provide a one page descriptor of room numbers for important places like the bathroom, office supply room, kitchen, copy room, mail room, and various offices he/she may need to know about.

The packet should also include information about the division and office the new person belongs to. Nothing is worse that getting bossed around by a variety of people, only to find later you report to none of them. If the newcomer has management responsibilities, give them bios and position descriptions of the individuals they are managing as well as the "big rocks" being addressed by their staff. And make sure the person knows to whom he/she reports.

Each agency has a unique culture and often times, so does each office. Thus, it's important to inform the newcomer to these cultures. Are people hard-core environmentalists who'll be offended if you don't join their car pool? Does the staff all eat lunch together? Is teleworking encouraged or discouraged? Are the hours flexible? Is there a coffee or water club? Let the person know these things in advance so they don't make a bad first impression with the staff.

Once the new employee has been properly briefed, walk them around the facility to meet and greet others and get to know the building. Be adventurous and venture out of your row of cubicles and introduce them to others they will encounter periodically.

After he/she becomes settled at their desk and has time to read over materials, spend time with them. Go over the mission of the office and the agency, and walk them through the ongoing projects and tasks they should be aware of, even if they don't play an active role.

The first week, set performance expectations and ensure that the new hire starts doing meaningful work as soon as possible. Most people want to feel like they are contributing and not just being kept busy. It is your opportunity to set the tone for the work ahead.

It's also best for managers to provide initial training and give and solicit feedback during the first 90 days.

Remember, hiring someone is the first step. Keeping and retaining a good staff member is the real challenge and the first 90 days have a tremendous impact on that. If you follow my advice, the newcomer won't be huddled by a messy desk with no computer access being ignored and thinking: "Did I make the right decision? Should I have stayed at my last job? Are these people all nuts?

History of the United States
Articles of Confederation

What were some of the achievements of the Congress under the Articles of Confederation?

The biggest achievements of the congress under the Articles of Confederation were winning the War for Independence, negotiating the subsequent peace treaty, and passing the Northwest Ordinance.

The articles of confederation was important because it formed a loose alliance between the states of America to come together in time of need or attack to protect themselves, it also helped to unify the colonist to some degree.

Under the Articles of Confederation the American colonists fought and defeated Great Britain and gained independence. By the end of the "Confederation era," Congress had created a bureaucracy to administer the day-to-day affairs of the government. The issue over the western lands was solved under the Articles. The large states holding vast amounts of western land ceded the land to the government under the Articles so that all the states could share in the wealth of those lands. The Northwest Ordinances were passed that provided for the creation of equal, self governing states in the Northwest Territories and the newly created states would have the same rights and privileges as the original 13 states. Congress also provided for a survey of the western lands to prepare the land for sale to all.

What is the Queen's Privy Council for Canada?

The Queen's Privy Council for Canada is a body of advisors to Her Majesty the Queen of Canada. The Privy Council was created by s. 11 of the Constitution Act, 1867, and consists of members appointed by the Governor General of Canada on the advice of the prime minister. Members of the Privy Council are styled The Honourable, and may use the post-nominals "P.C."

These ministers are usually members of the Cabinet (which is technically a committee of the larger Privy Council).
