Genre: Social Science

Our Social World: Introduction to Sociology inspires students to develop their sociological imaginations, to see the world and personal events from a new perspective, and to confront sociological issues on a day-to-day basis. Organized around the "Social World" model, a conceptual framework that demonstrates the relationships among individuals (the micro level); organizations, institutions, and subcultures (the meso level); and societies and global structures (the macro level), Jeanne H. Ballantine, Keith A. Roberts, and Kathleen Odell Korgen use this framework to help students develop the practice of using three levels of analysis, and to view sociology as an integrated whole, rather than a set of discrete subjects. The Seventh Edition includes new coverage of climate change, the influence of robots and artificial intelligence on workers, race relations in the Trump era, issues related to transgender identity and gender fluidity, sexual harassment in the workplace and the #MeToo movement, declining marriage rates, the impact of tracking for students at all academic achievement levels, smoking as an example of health and inequality in the US, gun violence and the student movement to control access to guns, social media, and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The Best 2017 Draft Guide Out There! The Most Honest, Unbiased and Completely Raw NFL Draft Guide on the Market Today With 250 + prospects in this guide and 80,000 words written, I believe I did just that. I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the in-depth analysis, grades, and player fits on each and every single player in this year's guide. I even includes all the up-to-date sizes and measurements from the combine for each player. But why should you buy THIS guide, and who exactly am I? Well I'm a normal guy just like you, except that I watch college football tape for fun, and write pages and pages of notes on almost every single eligible player for the draft. Yes, you can say I'm a dork. I also write my reports in such a way that everyone can understand, even the casual football fan. I don't use fancy scout lingo or terms that make you wonder -what the heck is he talking about?- I've been doing this for 5 years now, and I've hit a lot more on players then I miss. I write for multiple publications and have been recognized by many when it comes to my draft evaluations. The other thing that separates me is I don't write or grade players based on what the -talking heads- on TV or on the internet say about players. I come to my own conclusions, whether popular or unpopular. Of course I'm wrong on occasion like every single evaluator out there, but I'm right A LOT. Just for instance, in December of 2015, I said Carson Wentz was the best QB in the 2016 NFL Draft. At the time, he was considered a late round draft pick by most. Many evaluators hadn't even heard of him yet, others blasted me and said -I'm crazy and he's an undraftable guy coming from FCS level North Dakota State.- That is just 1 small example. I can't promise you that I'll be right on all these players, but I can promise you that every single player in this guide I came to my own opinion about after watching the tape. I had no pre-conceived ideas about any of these players, nor do I have a college football team affiliation. I'm not biased, nor am I non-objectionable. With that being said, I'm more excited then ever about this draft class. There is so much depth at so many positions, it is hard to find a 'weak' spot in this draft. Some will say 'QB' but I disagree wholeheartedly. I think there could easily be 3 franchise QB's in this draft class. Let's get into it my 2017 Draft Evaluations!

American Football und das Big Business in den USA Das Erfolgskonzept der National Football League und die Unterschiede zu den Top Fussball Ligen in Europa

Facharbeit (Schule) aus dem Jahr 2017 im Fachbereich Sport - Sportökonomie, Sportmanagement, Note: 5,5 (Schweiz: beste Note 6,0), , Veranstaltung: Maturaarbeit, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Arbeit gibt einleitend einen Überblick über den Sport American Football. Weiter wird beschrieben, wie die amerikanische Football Profi-Liga, die National Football League oder kurz NFL, aus sportlicher und betriebswirtschaftlicher Sicht organisiert ist und welche Ziele sie verfolgt. Die NFL ist aus sportlicher Sicht die populärste Profiliga in den USA. Aus wirtschaftlicher Sicht ist die NFL ein Unternehmen in Monopolstellung mit einer Strategie der Gewinnmaximierung. Die sportliche Ausgeglichenheit unter den Ligateilnehmern, d.h. die Wettbewerbsbalance, ist dabei die wichtigste Voraussetzung für den kommerziellen Erfolg der Liga. Die NFL hat ihre Organisation mit ihren 32 Teams als Franchisenehmer und ihre Strategie konsequent auf die Erhöhung der Wettbewerbsbalance ausgerichtet, um damit für die Liga möglichst hohe Gewinne zu erzielen. Dafür hat die NFL verschiedene Regeln und Instrumente etabliert, um die Spannung in der Meisterschaft vom Anfang bis zum Schluss hoch zu halten. Die wichtigsten Instrumente sind z.B. das Revenue Sharing, das Salary Cap, das Draft System, die Roster Restriction und der Playoff-Modus. Diese werden in der Arbeit beschrieben und anschliessend in einem Analyseteil auf ihre Wirksamkeit untersucht. Auch in Europa ist der Profi-Fussball aus sportlicher und wirtschaftlicher Sicht äusserst erfolgreich. Das europäische Fussball-Ligasystem funktioniert aber grundlegend anders als das amerikanische Ligasystem. Die NFL hat eine geschlossene Ligastruktur mit fix gesetzten Clubs. Die europäischen Ligen haben eine offene Ligastruktur mit Auf- und Abstiegsmöglichkeiten, wo sich die Mannschaften aufgrund ihrer sportlichen Leistung qualifizieren müssen. Weiter unterscheiden sich die europäischen Ligen vom amerikanischen System in der Nachwuchsförderung und in der gänzlich fehlenden Reglementierung im finanziellen Wettbewerb. Im Analyseteil werden alle Analysen auch im Vergleich zu den europäischen Fussball-Ligen, insbesondere zu den „Big Five“ und im Detail zu der englischen Barclays Premier League durchgeführt. Es wird untersucht, welche Unterschiede aus wirtschaftlicher und aus sportlicher Sicht sich durch die unterschiedlichen Systeme ergeben. Diese Resultate dienen dann der Beurteilung der Wirksamkeit der verschiedenen untersuchten Instrumente im amerikanischen System. Zudem wird jeweils überlegt, ob die untersuchten Instrumente auch für eine Einführung in Europa geeignet wären, um die Wettbewerbsbalance zu erhöhen.
