Israel History


Israel is located in the ancient kingdoms of Israel and Judah. It is believed to be the origin of the Hebrew spoken language in Israel as from the time of exodus’s Moses leadership. Most the people in the whole nation are Christians, Judaism, Islam and Druze which are the mode of worshiping God (the maker of the universe). Israelites are integrated in the Jewish race for they do trace their origin from the old period fore-fathers, like for example Abraham Jacob, Binyamin, Yusuf and Reuben. With cultural believes perpetuated from one generation to the other, Israelites have continued shaped up the Jewish cultural believes in perpetuity. Their wide social  configuration  describes Jewish race continuity, it is the merely nation on earth that populates the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and has the same divinity in three thousand years ago. Genesis chapter thirty two in the bible his twelve sons were the kernels of twelve tribes that later developed into the Jewish homeland. The posterities of Abraham formed into a nation in thirteen hundred before Christ after their exit from Egypt under the leadership of Moses. After forty years in the Sinai desert, as bible depicts Moses led them to the Land of Israel- the Promised Land by creator to the descendants of the patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Genesis chapter seventeen.

Up to date the people of Israel share the same language and values shaped by the Jewish custom and religion passed through generations beginning with the founding father Abraham eighteen hundred before Christ. Therefore, this explains the unremitting presence of Jews in the land of Israel for the past three thousand three hundred years.




Israel past and Current Political Situation

The Israel’s politics in the past has been dominated by Zionist and non-Zionist politicians. There has been an Orthodox and Israel Arab parties as well. Meaning that, Israel has been governed under the multiparty system from the time in memorial. The Israel’s prime minister of Gold Meir of 1969 to 1974 once declared that multiparty was greatly important for the sake of nation’s governance. He said that small parties encouraged the misappropriation the state’s resources or either blocked the implementation of sane restructured legislation. Basically, single party nation promoted irrelevant agenda for the best interest of nation. Gold Meir was later succeeded by Yitzhak Rabin who mostly advocated for peace and democracy.

Currently, Israel has fundamentally remained as one of the most all protected countries. In spite of a very diverse society, marked with cultural and political dissimilarities amongst nonspiritual and Jews of Middle Eastern and European background, Israelites have divided political scene consistently produces large coalition governments but there is inherent assurance to the policy of sthe legislative democracy.

Politics is never dull in Israel and we will be focusing at considerable changes in the country’s direction. Over the past two decades, Israel has moved away from the economic model built by the left-leaning initiators of the state, toward more broadminded policies with a greater role for the private sector. The economy prospered as an outcome, but the gap between highest and lowest incomes widened, and life has become harder for many at the lower stairs of the ladder.

At the same time there has been a notable political shift to the right. Disappointed with the left-wing parties, many Israelis turned to populist right-wing politicians, while attitudes toward the peace process with the Palestinians toughened.


Israel Economic Situation

Israel has a strong, technologically unconventional market economy. It’s major export comprises of cut diamonds, high-technology equipment, and pharmaceuticals. Israel commonly posts good-sized trade deficits, which are covered by tourism and other service exports, as well as important foreign investment inflows.

The worldwide financial crisis of two thousand and eight-two thousand and nine prompted a brief stagnation in Israel, but the country entered the crisis with concrete fundamentals following years of wise monetary policy and a robust banking sector. Amir asserts that the economy has improved better than most advanced, comparably sized economies (78). In two thousand and ten, Israel formally assented to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Israel’s economy also has battered the Arab Spring because strong trade ties outside the Middle East have secured the economy from spillover effects.

Natural gas fields discovered off Israel’s coast in the past two years have improved Israel’s energy security outlook. The Leviathan turf was one of the world’s leading offshore natural gas discoveries this past decade, and production from the Tama field was expected to meet all of Israel’s natural gas demand starting mid-year two thousand and thirty three

Correspondingly, Israel has strong economic growth rate, low employment rates as six percent in year two thousand and twelve and five percent in year two thousand and eleven.

In conclusion the study of Israel revolves in my mind as I was born on Israel’s soil and so I have a clear knowledge about the issues related to the country that is Israel’s history, its current political situation and economic situation.

            According to the description of the lady she is at high risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. The main health risk behaviors are weight gain and smoking and at the middle age she is in, with the genetic inclinations she is prone to develop obesity, heart disease and diabetes. She needs to be really cautious about her health as she is at risk of many problems. She needs to improve her eating habits and indulge in more physical activity. Diabetes is a more chronic disease while heart disease can be fatal as well. Thus, the lady is at huge health risk if she continues to gain weight or switch back to smoking. She is under very high risk zone because she has genetic inclinations as well for these diseases.

Main Body:

            Obesity, smoking and genetic factors add up to a much high risk of heart disease and diabetes. The lady had been smoking and it is good that she left smoking but the weight gain is not a good sign. She is also at risk of high blood pressure which might result into heart attack and similar fatal conditions. Another health risk with which is associated is brain damage due to obesity and smoking. She has a history for smoking and when she left smoking, gained 20 pounds which increases the risk of affecting the brain as she is in middle age. She should consult her physician for a strict diet based on her conditions as she is required to lose a lot of weight to stay fit and stay away from these diseases.

Genetic factors are the most strong reasons for occurrence of the diseases as they are predisposed and difficult to be dealt with even physical exercise and going on a diet. Other factors like obesity and smoking have more direct influence on the disease risks. This means that controlling smoking and obesity has more pronounced effects on minimizing the consequences of the diseases than genetic factors because diseases in heredity tend to have an inclination which can be combated by healthy living and staying fit. The lady can get these diseases even after controlling her diet and increasing physical activity but that is predisposed as well as unlikely. Thus, she is advised to take healthy nutritious food along with some supplements as advised by her physician and start to do some regular exercises for controlling her weight. This can bring a drastic positive change.

The diseases like obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes are interconnected with high weight gain and smoking. The consequences are worse when the patient is of middle age as is the case discussed in this paper. The eating habits should be altered to control the growing weight as she has recently added 20 pounds after leaving smoking. She should be taking nutritive rich diet instead of fattening food as it has direct consequences on her health. Physical activity is also very necessary but at her age consultation of the physician is a must. As the requirements and stamina of the body changes with age thus the same advice will not work for her as it was when she was 20. Her diet should be high on fruits and vegetables and totally avoid fattening food.


The case study discussed has the patient who is prone to heart disease, obesity and diabetes. She needs to be really cautious about her health as she is at risk of many problems. She needs to improve her eating habits and indulge in more physical activity. Diabetes is a more chronic disease while heart disease can be fatal as well. Thus, the lady is at huge health risk if she continues to gain weight or switch back to smoking.

Project in General Business Discussion


Q1.How can a culture persist in an organization for over 170 years across different owners?

A 20 year old Yves Cantat is an electrical maintenance worker at Lafarge’s plant in France. Those days are gone when mixing cement was like making a huge cake. Now everything is computerized. Each and everything has been changed from equipment to production processes since last 20 years but not the employees. Lafarge is the world’s biggest cement producing company with over $15 billion in revenues from 133 cement plants in 46 countries. There are only 4 CEO’s and two of them have written books about the company’s culture. Rother, Mike (2009)the key responsibility of managers in Lafarge is to develop their people. They always try to expose their employees to challenging assignments that help them to learn from their achievements and mistakes and support them to outperform themselves. The training given to the employees require to monitor the development of employees. Their main is to become a learning organization. It is expected here that the people of Lafarge share their experiences and also seek same from others so that best practices could be derived from the ability to recognize and share their success regardless of their position in the company. To deal with the conflict is an integral and productive part of teamwork. Teamwork is not about reaching consensus on each and every issue rather it is about each individual contributing, accepting, and seeking differences of opinion as a source of progress. The effective teamwork also creates an environment of trust and confidence that can only be built daily through professionalism, personal commitment, shared goals and respect for common rules. To learn in an organization means continuous testing of experience and then transforming that experience into knowledge which is accessible to the whole organization and also relevant to its core purpose. To change the way the members must interact among themselves about redesigning the formal structures of the organization it is also the hard to see patterns of interaction between people and processes.


Q2.Is OD an emerging discipline or only a passing fad

Organizational development has come a long way since past five decades. The practitioners feel that organizational development has become too ritualized and its field lacks rigorous empirical foundation and also fail to deal with critical issues. Ashby W R (1956)The reward system and performance management interventions is considered a part of human resource management and leadership and strategic change methodologies are shared with the strategy and the business policy discipline and reengineering is practiced by industrial engineers and information technologists. The issues and interventions are closely identified with organization development are part of traditional business practice. Beck hard R (1969) It also supports the criticism that organizational development is just a bag of tools and techniques, and unless organizational development generates new interventions and approaches for dealing with today’s business and organizational problems that lose its identity. The development of organizational development practitioners also include a solid ground in the fundamental theories of change and intervention dynamics as well as the broad disciplines that underpin those theories. Schultz, Diane P. Schultz, Sydney Ellen (2006) The practitioner must be familiar with the wide ranges of social sciences. To efficiently develop the organizational development practices the new methods. The organizational development retains an aura of mystique as it takes so many forms and draws on multiple disciplines and operates in a moment according to context and culture. The ongoing development for practitioners remains a real priority as the nature of work relies on the individual ability to read the organization and also make effective interventions which are relevant and sensitive to the organizational context. The organizational development has survived and evolved through many new challenges, new disciplines and paradigms.
