As World War II dawned in Europe, General George C. Marshall, the new Army Chief of Staff, had to acknowledge that American society-and the citizens who would soon become soldiers-had drastically changed in the previous few decades. Almost every home had a radio, movies could talk, and driving in an automobile to the neighborhood soda fountain was part of everyday life. A product of newly created mass consumerism, the soldier of 1940 had expectations of material comfort, even while at war.

At one point during a visit, we discussed how long she’s been practicing her specialty. She said she’s been at the same hospital for more than 40 years. Then I asked what her employers had given her to note that amazing milestone - four decades of saving lives!
Le Operette morali sono una raccolta di ventiquattro componimenti in prosa, divise tra dialoghi e novelle dallo stile medio e ironico, scritte tra il 1824 ed il 1832. Riflessione filosofica ed empito poetico fanno sì che Leopardi, al pari di Schopenhauer e più tardi di Kafka, possa essere visto come un esistenzialista o almeno un precursore dell'EsistenzialismoI temi sono quelli cari al poeta: il rapporto dell'uomo con la storia, con i suoi simili e in particolare con la Natura, di cui Leopardi matura una personale visione filosofica.
An in-depth look about how communication can reflect on an employee's personal attitude towards work in either a positive or negative way. Trigger words are necessary in the workplace if they promote a positive reaction for the employee, such as a positive response or motivation work harder.

Pascal reste unique, non pas tant qu'il est, selon Paul Valéry, une des plus fortes intelligences qui aient paru, mais par sa fougue, par son élan, par cette agressivité qui empoigne l'âme de l'auditeur.
Questo è il sentimento che riempie di sé tutta l'opera leopardiana: la desolata nostalgia d'una felicità sconosciuta ed assurda, la disperata aspirazione verso un mondo migliore. Nelle più riuscite fra le "Operette", come nei "Canti", la poesia non nasce dalla brutta realtà ma dal vano bisogno di superarla... Così nelle "Operette" come nei "Canti" questa realtà grigia si disegna sul fondo luminoso di un ideale: e l'impressione dominante è quella di una delusione non rassegnata.
Many companies go to great lengths every year or two to determine just how motivated their work force really is. Traditionally, they might get vendors such as Gallup to survey employee engagement.

Le Operette Morali, il libro "più caro dei miei occhi" come lo definì lo stesso Leopardi, sono una raccolta di prose e dialoghi di carattere satirico, fantastico e filosofico, scritte tra il 1824 e il 1832, in cui lo scrittore e poeta tenta di educare un'Umanità incapace di guardare in faccia la realtà e che si culla in vane illusioni. Leopardi si sforza, a volte con spietatezza ed ironia, di "chiarirgli" quale sia il suo destino. Le Operette sono considerate uno dei capolavori della letteratura italiana di tutti i tempi.
