The System

This situation generates many of the officials met at the last moment with evaluation tasks, maximising the biases and errors of central tendency, novelty, contrast or similarity. It is associated to salary increases or promotions one most mentioned and goals related to the performance appraisal system, it is the being apparent main input for the determination of compensation policies, promotion or salary increases. Indeed, although a good evaluation can be adjusted on a percentage grade for wage increases, the market forces and particularly the budget of the Organization are the variables that really make rocking the needle on this topic. Both unstable are outside both the domain of the evaluated evaluator. Likewise, this direct association between scores and the economic reward, subject to the evaluator to a sort of conditioning time to assess the performance of the appraisee.

For its part, who receives these estimates, you can naturally fall in an attempt to overstate their performances in favour of one greater compensation. However, in truth, the compensatory policy is prior and little margin usually remains for setting good or bad performance. And, although there is an important space for that setting, it is likely that assessment will be more a negotiating process or an intention of winning support from his subordinate or higher than a description, although subjective, of the performance. On the other hand, promotions are subject to the release of existing positions or the generation of new vacancies by the business. If there is no offer, nor there may be demand so that the system is in equilibrium. This reality, strongly affects the possibility that there are excessive assessments above the average.

Israeli Arabs

So far is caught an Arab teenager, who acknowledges having left unintentionally ashes without shutting down after making a campfire with friends. However the matter is not clear, since fires occurred simultaneously in places distant from each other. As he spent in Australia. The israeli army reported having spotted a vehicle escaping from one of the burned places, and border police arrested two Israeli Arabs who tried to set fire to a forest near Jerusalem on Saturday night. The inhabitants of the Arab village of Furadis, South of Haifa, went out to celebrate the fire and did sound the horns of their cars as a sign of rejoicing. A group linked to Al Qaeda, called the Muyajedines of Palestine, glorified crime on their website which incites to commit similar acts of vandalism. Israel is the country that has planted more trees in the last decades. The trees are creatures of God and like the rest of creation have a complexion that is sacred in Judaism.

Judaism forbids felling trees ignoring certain exceptions only allows pruning them and start its fruit after three years of having planted. Since Biblical times the Jewish people annually celebrates Tu Bishvat, the new year of the trees, following the teachings of the book of Leviticus. Talk about the israeli miracle that turned the desert into a garden, it sounds trite, but Arabs with all their money, have not been able to do the same. Not even interested in buying technology to improve its habitat. They prefer to spend their millions on weapons and Jihad, abetting death. Where are the protests from ecological activists Greenpeace? They will continue assisting their Muslim friends?
