When using social media through a public forum, does the user give up his or her rights to privacy, or can the user reasonably expect that some degree or privacy can and should still be maintained?

 Social Media and Privacy- Consider these questions about social media and privacy: Have you experienced an example of social media going too far, perhaps a posting you thought should not have been shared in this medium? What are the appropriate boundaries, if any, of social media usage?

Consider any one of the articles on social media and privacy. Write a 250-word persuasive paragraph in support of or opposition to Internet privacy. 

Explain how the union-organizing process works differently in the public sector compared to the private sector.

 Review the CBA provided in the resources section between the Trustees of Columbia University and Local 2110 International Union of Technical, Office, and Professional Workers.

Describe how this is similar to a “contract” between management and labor. Do you believe it is written at the correct level of detail (e.g., is it too vague and therefore needing more specific details, or is it broad enough for logical interpretation)? Provide several specific examples.

Do you believe this document adds value to a workplace, or does it create restrictions? Please explain.
 
 Develop a flow chart or step-by-step list of the key steps employees must take to form unions. Explain how the union-organizing process works differently in the public sector compared to the private sector. Describe the roles of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) compared to the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA).

what is directing
Directing  is the orchestration of the play unifying the set, actors and various  aspects of production into a theatre production. William Ball advises  the directors of combining the play with reality in such a way that the  play is more realistic and audiences amerced in the acts. Ball gives  five main steps in acquiring this, first being preparation were choosing  the right actor for a scene is essential in the outcome. Incubation is  the second one giving the director time for new ideas setting the  challenges and opportunities. The third being a good understanding of  the play or inspirational plot for the play, having only one chance to  tell the story right with the precise actors: ‘first come, first  served.’ Last but not least is the evaluation process or rehearsal were  the opinions and complaints from actors, or any intellectual  confrontations should be avoided. The actualization of the play is the  last as all ideas are brought to life in the play.
