Effects Of Social Media, a New Article on Vkool.Com, Gives People Pros and Cons of Social Media – V-kool

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 05, 2014

The new “Effects Of Social Media” article on the site Vkool.com delivers to people many advantages and disadvantages of social networking sites. At the beginning of the article, people will discover positive effects of social media. The author indicates that social networks offer young people a way to stay in touch. Moreover, participating in social networking makes people feel more outgoing and less shy. In fact, social networking sites make teenagers feel more sympathetic to others. Furthermore, in this article, the writer points out that social media sites help employers find employees and job-seekers find work. The report also reveals that being a part of a social networking site could increase a person’s quality of life and reduce the risk of health problems. Social media could help people improve their life satisfaction, memory retention, stroke recovery, and overall well-being by providing them with a large social group.

In addition, the writing uncovers some negative effects of social media. Social media may make it harder for people to distinguish between the meaningful relationships they foster in the real world, and the casual relationships formed via social media. The more time people spend on social sites, the less time they spend on socializing in person. Due to the lack of body signals and other nonverbal cues, social networking websites are not a perfect replacement for face-to-face communication. In other words, the article covers many other negative effects of social media, such as isolation, appetite change, and cyber-bullying.

Huong Thanh from the site Vkool.com says that: “The “Effects Of Social Media” article is informative and helpful for people at all ages. This article supplies readers with all necessary information about effects of social media . The information delivered in this article is simple-to-understand for most people regardless of their gender and their education level.”

Facing Up to Bullies in the Workplace

Singapore, Singapore (PRWEB) February 06, 2014

A quirky regional manager comes under fire for sending inappropriate emails to his coworkers. An obnoxious travelling salesman stops by the office and makes one too many sexist comments, raising the ire of the female employees — and also the question of workplace bullying. All incidents within an episode of “The Office” titled “Sexual Harassment”.

How do we recognise workplace bullying? When employees cry foul, are they being overly sensitive or do they have cause?

How do we draw the line between what is funny and what is offensive? CEO of Verztec Consulting Pte Ltd, a leading Global Content Consulting Company – Nicholas Goh offers a tip sheet to better deal with such situations at the workplace.

The office is a second home, so it is said. However, when people work in proximity for five days a week, interpersonal problems are likely to arise. In turn, hostility may fester.

Workplace bullying is becoming a prevalent social problem. In a 2012 online survey conducted by JobsCentral, 24% of Singaporean employees said they were victims of workplace bullying. According to Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, in 2012 there were 51,670 cases where employees sought labour counselling because they were bullied at work.

1. What Constitutes Bullying?

In May 2013, a 17-second video of a Singaporean intern being repeatedly slapped by his boss surfaced on the Internet. It was later revealed that the abuse ran deeper than just physical and verbal assault; the 29-year-old intern had been working at the software company for three years, taking home a minimum wage of $ 500 a month. Not only did he work many late nights, he was also not entitled to any benefits such as annual leave.

Where physical or verbal abuse has occurred, the bullying becomes clear-cut. Other forms of bullying, however, may be more subtle. Take sexual harassment for example. In a public opinion survey by Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE), over 50% of Singaporean employees—out of 500 males and females—said they had experienced sexual harassment at some point. 30% of them said the harassment was repeated.

What is regarded as harassment can be highly subjective. To some, a gentle slap on the buttocks may just be a playful gesture, but to others it could amount to molestation.

2. When Funny Goes Overboard

Men are not always the perpetrators of sexual harassment debacles. In 2009, an email sent by a female graduate trainee at accountancy firm Deloitte quickly became a talking point. In the email, the employee asked her female colleagues to vote for their male counterparts in categories such as “Fittest Boy – Body”, ”Best-dressed Boy” and ”Boy Most Likely to Sleep His Way to the Top”.

It was all in the name of good-natured fun; the votes would be gathered for an award ceremony to be held during the office’s Christmas party. Her male colleagues even gladly nominated themselves. However, the email went viral and soon her managers got wind of this matter. The said employee resigned the next day. In an official statement, a Deloitte spokesman expressed disappointment in her behaviour and advised all to exercise discretion when sending emails.

An office prank could also escalate into a lawsuit. Such was the case of Harvey Palacio, the Intel employee who sued his employer in 2013. As part of a prank, his colleagues taped a ‘Kick Me’ sign to his back. They kicked him—a few times in the buttocks—even when he sought help to remove the sign. Because of this incident, Palacio suffered emotional distress.

3. Defining Bullying

Office jokes and pranks are pulled on a regular basis, but at what point does entertainment turn into harassment? If a supervisor is quick to berate a subordinate over a mistake, is it verbal abuse or just a management style? Is it bullying if a superior constantly inundates a junior employee with assignments? These are grey areas. It is, therefore, important to first understand the parameters of bullying.

Other than making unwanted sexual advances, AWARE defines the use of derogatory and belittling terms as well as career threats—the threat of termination or withholding of promotion—if an employee refuses to go on a date or acquiesce to sexual favours as sexual harassment. Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI) defines bullying as “repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons by one or more perpetrators”. Deliberate hindering or sabotaging work progress is also defined as a form of bullying.

Going by these definitions, two of the above-mentioned cases qualify as bullying, since a pattern of hostile behaviours was exhibited. In Palacio’s case, his coworkers had, in the months leading up to the prank, hidden his uniform and filled his work bag with trash. Palacio also believes that he was a target because of his Filipino descent.

The WBI also states that perpetrators are compelled by a need to control their targets. A colleague of the Singaporean intern recounted to Yahoo! several incidences where his boss repeatedly struck the latter. The reason for this abuse: the victim had an inferiority complex and the boss felt the need to “nurture him”.

4. Targets — Taking Action

Bullying engenders stress-related symptoms and emotional pain. The WBI found in a 2013 empirical research study titled “Offsetting the Pain from Workplace Bullying” that 32.3% of bullied targets engaged in self-destructive behaviours. Such behaviours included overeating, turning to alcohol, prescribed medications and recreational drugs as well as gambling. 33.4% of bullied targets withdrew social contact.

Onlookers may be baffled as to why victims would continue working in a toxic environment. Quitting may seem like the wisest choice, but the loss of income is a worrying factor. In fact, the WBI found in an instant poll involving 241 bullied individuals that 53% of them suffered economic setbacks after leaving their jobs. 26% of them never found a job replacement.

So what actions can you take, if you are a victim of bullying and you decide to stick it out at your workplace? What if the perpetuator is your direct supervisor or the boss of the company —what can you do?

5. Document the Bullying

In the Harvard Business Review article “Is Your Boss a Bully? Stop Being the Target” (19 November 2009), the authors advise that the victim should determine if there is a pattern of abuse. To do this, facts and specific behaviours should be documented. When did the incidents happen and what triggered the episodes? What were the words used? Documenting the incidents helps lend credence to your testimonies.

Another thing you should take note of is the witnesses who were present during the incident. Are they likely to corroborate your account or would they take the perpetuator’s side?

6. Set Boundaries

Many victims choose to suffer in silence – that is why bullies can freely take advantage. Forbes discusses the importance of setting limits in the article “How to Deal with a Bullying Boss” (20 September 2013). Learn to say “no” to a supervisor who throws his weight around and asks you to work unreasonable hours. This extends to coworkers as well – when a remark borders more on offensive than funny, sound off. State your reasons and get them to understand why it is not okay to make such comments.    

7. Talk to the Instigator Behind Closed Doors

Confronting a bully in the heat of the moment may prove ineffective. In The Straits Times article “Dealing with Workplace Bullying” (17 September 2012), Head of Southeast Asia Operations at Reed Specialist Recruitment Deepali Chaturvedi advises initiating a sit-down discussion with the bully. Talk about how the specific incidents made you feel threatened. If all else fails, consider taking the matter up with a senior HR representative.

8. The Last Resort

Unfortunately, grievances in the workplace are not always addressed. In the research study “Aftermath of Requesting Help from Human Resources” by WBI, 30.9% of the respondents said that their HR departments did nothing after the complaints were filed. The reluctance to punish could be due to the fact that the bullies are either key appointment holders or performers highly valued by the company.

If the bullying persists, you should consider submitting a complaint to the relevant government authorities. If the abuse turns physical or if you fear for your safety, make a police report. If you are fired after submitting a complaint against a higher-up, you can seek recourse by discussing your legal options with a lawyer.    

9. Companies — Respond Wisely

Workplace bullying will lead to a loss of productivity. If the resident bully is left to his own devices, eventually other employees will leave the company, resulting in a high turnover. The company will incur additional costs for recruitment and retraining. Abusive employers can also become embroiled in hefty lawsuits should dissatisfied employees decide to seek damages. Hence, any complaints about hostile behaviours should be taken seriously.

When coming to a resolution, HR personnel as well as management should avoid taking sides. Instead, rely on testimonies and facts to effectively resolve a conflict.

#LOVESOCHI, Rally and Support WorldPride 2014 ~ To Russia With Love

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) February 06, 2014

WorldPride 2014 Toronto, presented by Pride Toronto launches the #LOVESOCHI action, and takes part in a local Toronto rally at the Russian consulate today. WorldPride 2014 Toronto continues to lend its voice to the chorus of those who stand up for LGBTTIQQ2SA (LGBTQ) Rights, because these rights are Human Rights.

#LOVESOCHI is a message of love and support to LGBTQ people in Russia and around the world who survive despite government oppression. To share your support, take a photo or video of hands making the heart symbol and share it with #LOVESOCHI hashtag on all social media. Visit the #LOVESOCHI action site for more details: http://worldpridetoronto.com/lovesochi.

“We ask everyone to take a moment and actively share their love and support for the LGBTQ people of Russia during the Olympics and long after the last medal is awarded,” says Kevin Beaulieu, Executive Director, Pride Toronto. “In the face of hatred and intolerance, these courageous Russians rise up for love and freedom, and we rise up in support of them.”

Join the conversation around LGBTQ rights in Russia. Send love to the LGBTQ community through #LOVESOCHI. Join us at the Russian consulate TODAY, February 6, @ 6 p.m., 175 Bloor Street East, in a Rally for Global Human Rights and Equality.

“We want those who are outraged by Russia’s stance on LGBTQ rights to join us in common purpose,” says Sean Hillier, Co-Chair, Pride Toronto. We want people to share their collective anger at government bullying and take action either in person or on their social channels to show their support for those oppressed.”

Vladimir Putin’s aggressive conservative agenda in Russia has resulted in protests, and violent arrests. The mayor of Sochi asserts that there are no LGBTQ people in Sochi, an assertion we know to be untrue.

“Letting the LGBTQ population in Russia know that we have not forgotten their rights while the Olympics captivates the world is more important than what the Games themselves seek to accomplish,” says Dr. Shelley Craig, Co-Chair, Pride Toronto. “Higher, Faster, Stronger may be the Olympic motto, but it should also be the motto for those fighting against anti-gay oppression: Raise our voices higher, spread our message faster, demonstrate our pride is stronger.”

Judith A. Terrys New Book Advocates for Victims to Stand Up Against Bullies

Chicago (PRWEB) February 09, 2014

Bullying is a widespread problem. A joint study from Clemson University and Hazelden, an addiction treatment and recovery services company, reported in 2013 that one-fifth of all students were involved in bullying at school, either as the victim, aggressor or both. Victims often feel trapped in their situation, but Judith A. Terry wants readers to know they have the choice to stand up against their bully. Her new book, “Why Bully Me?” (published by AuthorHouse), offers a real message of support for bullying victims.

“Readers need to know that things don’t have to stay the same,” Terry explains. “They shouldn’t be afraid to stand up and fight back. My book is different because it shows how to fight back against bullies.”

Ana makes friends with Lucille and Gloria on the first day of eighth grade. Lucille warns Ana that Gloria is trouble and after a short period of time, Gloria starts bullying Ana. Gloria’s bullying culminates in a standoff outside the school. Ana has to choose between standing up to Gloria or continuing to deal with Gloria’s bullying. Luckily, Ana can count on Lucille to stand behind her, as true friends do.

“Why Bully Me?” offers Terry’s advice on how to confront a bully, but also emphasizes the important role of true friends when one friend is bullied.

“I was bullied in school,” Terry relates. “I want to share with others who are being bullied what I did to stop my bully.”

Superheroes Rise Up Against Bullying at Local Stunt Show

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 10, 2014

Looking for a great way to keep your kids entertained and teach them an important lesson at the same time? Then head over to the Intrepid Air & Space Museum on Monday, Feb. 17, for the Anti-Bullying Stunt Show extravaganza, a Hollywood-style show designed to be enjoyable for kids and their parents.

The stunt show is being performed by Characters for Hire, an entertainment group that specializes in using entertainment to educate audiences, and will feature five superheroes who will engage the audience with choreographed stunts, dazzling costumes, music, dance, and an anti-bullying dialogue about what it means to be a hero.

Nick Sarelli, the event’s producer, says he developed the Anti-Bullying Stunt Show to reach children who may already be the victims of bullying, and to remind parents of the critical role they play in helping their child deal with bullying whenever and wherever they encounter it.

“Parents need to be actively involved in their child’s life and be a role model,” Sarelli said. “If they receive a report from the school or other parents, adults or children, or if they see signs that their child is engaging in bullying activities or may be the victim of bullying, it’s their responsibility to take action. Although it may seem like the easier route to ignore a call from the principal’s office, they owe it to their child and their child’s peers to take steps to correct the situation or to reach out and get the help their child needs.”

Incidents of bullying – face-to-face, online and via texting – have risen rapidly in recent years, and many schools, police departments and other groups have developed anti-bullying campaigns to educate children and their parents about the dangers of peer abuse. Sarelli said the Characters for Hire anti-bullying show was created in the wake of the death of an area teen who committed suicide.

“That had a really big impact on me and my family and friends, and it made me realize how important it is to instill the values of compassion and justice while children are still young,” he said. “As they grow older, children are often more likely to succumb to peer and societal pressures, and it can become much more difficult to teach them these important life lessons.”

Characters for Hire specializes in authentic costumed entertainment for private parties and corporate entertainment planning. The company relies on the creative talents of 300 professionally trained actors to create more than 1,000 characters who perform combative stunts, acrobatic performances, musical dance shows, super hero events, educational programs, musical dance shows and more.

Bullying Statistics 2014: an Extensive Guide Released by NoBullying Today

London, UK (PRWEB) February 11, 2014

There is no doubt that bullying is a problem in U.S. schools, but just how much of a problem is it? NoBullying.com releases the latest bullying statistics 2014 guide today.

According to the guide, recent news stories are filled with tales of cyberbullying – where the target is harassed through social media or other technology – that have unfortunately resulted in victims’ suicides. The majority of bullying still takes place at school; 1 in 3 U.S. students say they have been bullied at school.

In a UCLA psychology study, published in January 2013, Psychologists studied 1,895 students at 11 Los Angeles middle schools, where students were asked to name the students who were considered the “coolest.” According to Jaana Juvonen, the lead author of the study, “The ones who are ‘cool’ bully more, and the ones who bully more are seen as ‘cool.’”

20 percent of U.S. students in grades 9-12 reportedly have experienced bullying, while 28 percent of students in grades 6-12 report the same. Experts agree that most incidences of bullying occur during middle school.

Most experts agree that bullying peaks in middle school, while children are making the transition from children to young adults. Although bullying certainly continues into high school – and even into adulthood, unfortunately – it does seem to subside with maturity.

Even so, approximately 160,000 teens reportedly skip school every day because of bullying, and 1 in 10 teens drops out of school due to repeated bullying. 83 percent of girls, and 79 percent of boys report being bullied either in school or online.

Macartan Mulligan, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said, “Bullying Statistics 2014 aim to keep our readers updated with what is going on in the sad world of bullying and cyberbullying. Numbers, sadly, cannot lie.”

He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and off line. According to Mulligan, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.

NoBullying.com features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing Bullying worldwide as well as inspirational Bullying Poems and Bullying Quotes.

The website makes a habit of updating its bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics regularly because it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is.

He also added that anyone suffering from bullying in any form or way can always reach out to the team of NoBullying and they will be given advice on how to stand up to bullying or protect themselves online.

EnvoyBooks Announces A New Bedtime Childrens Adventure Book – Combining a Mysterious Teacher, Disabled Kids, Super Heroes and Lessons on Persistence and Equality

Bakersfield, CA (PRWEB) February 12, 2014

Two authors, one disabled from a broken neck during a college wrestling match and the other a speech-language pathologist, bring their experience together to author an entertaining children’s adventure book now available at http://www.Amazon.com. EnvoyBooks proudly announces the illustrated Kindle eBook publication of “Miss Quince and the Can-Do Crew! The Mysterious Teacher and Her Class of Unlikely Super Heroes.”

Authors Mark and Katie Whyte wrote this super heroes book for kids as the story of a class of disabled children and an unusual teacher who helps them develop skills they never thought possible. This book focuses on helping the kids to think about and develop what they “can-do” rather than on what they can-not do. This fanciful and adventurous children’s book has life lessons on courage under pressure, overcoming bullying, and becoming a genuine super hero! This book is aimed at ages 8-12 but has a fun and encouraging message for a much wider age range. Currently available in Kindle format (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I8UXB2S), other mobi and hard cover formats to follow.

Co-author, Mark Whyte states, “I broke my neck wrestling in college at cervical 6-7, when I was just 20 years old. As such, I understand the daily difficulties, hassles and disappointments that come with being disabled. But I’ve tried to never let that stop me from living life to the fullest. That is the message that Katie and I have conveyed in this book. Your various disabilities may be a huge inconvenience, but they do not have to stop you from living powerfully every day.”

Adding an extra bit of authenticity to their writing, the Whyte’s oldest son is autistic and Katie works daily with special needs children as a speech-language pathologist. Authors bio: http://envoybooks.com/about-miss-quince-authors.

In what the Whyte’s intend to be a series, this first installment follows Marcus and his new Can-Do Crew friends as he begins a whole new way of living after a life-changing injury. His real adventure starts when he enters the classroom behind the yellow door and meets a mysterious, perhaps magical teacher. Her class is made up of a variety of special-needs students with a “can-do” spirit that equates to some very cool and unique skills. Soon enough, Marcus finds that being disabled is simply not the handicap that most think it is – in fact, he’s never had so much fun before.

“Miss Quince and the can-Do Crew” is published by EnvoyBooks, the Whyte’s own indie publishing house, http://www.EnvoyBooks.com. Mark states, “Katie and I are grateful for the simpler publishing options available in this day and age that allows us to take an idea and put it into print in a quick and nearly hassle free manner. Our intention is to help others like us to publish their own books. For this book, our hope is that it will encourage kids and parents alike and that all will dream big dreams and work to live them out.”

One reviewer stated: “As a pediatrician, retired after 42 years of practice, I highly recommend this little book. It is very well written and illustrated. The authors speak from years of experience in dealing with special needs children. Their positive attitude shows through on every page. We need to see more such books. How about a “Miss Quince” series?” William R. Fackler, M.D.

Interested readers can find this book along with its no-cost companion audio book (download) at http://www.Amazon.com/dp/B00I8UXB2S , or contact the authors at Envoybooks.com.

New Childrens Book Aims to Help Readers Self-esteem

Joplin, MO (PRWEB) February 14, 2014

After his wife noticed some of her students’ home lives or other factors hindering their learning, author J.R.S. decided to write “The Book with No Name” (published by AuthorHouse).

The husband-and-wife duo teamed up to create a children’s book that would appeal to all students whose life situations have interfered with their creativity, learning or interactions with others.

“We wanted to show children that being different is OK,” J.R.S. says. “Being a little uncomfortable about being different is also OK. We also know that one should never judge anybody for being different, having a disability, or just being a loner. So by writing this book it gave us insight into helping young readers overcome their troubles and everyday life problems.”

The book includes colorful illustrations of childhood situations like bullying, run-ins with authority and embarrassment for being different.

Each illustration is accompanied by motivational phrases for young readers to incorporate into their lives as safety mechanisms against teasing or confrontation.

J.R.S. says “The Book with No Name” can help young readers believe in themselves and overcome societal norms.
