1. Should maximizing profits be a primary goal of company?

->In Australia, the building products manufacturer, James Hardie Industries has been accused for causing over half of the number of documented cases of mesothemilia, a lung cancer caused by asbestos. The company leaders’ behavior has been widely condemned by key stakeholders, and by the local and federal governments. By analyzing the James Hardie asbestos compensation case in Australia, we examine the role of strategic ambiguity on leaders’ extended responsibility beyond profit maximization.

2. Why many people, mostly by men, are crazy about sports, what makes guys crazy about it?

->it provides a richly detailed demonstration that people love sports and a vivid portrait of how we love them: ‘‘social conditions through which sport arises and by which it continues to thrive’’. Delaney, the Sociology Department Chair at the StateUniversity of New York Oswego, and Madigan, an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at St. John Fisher College, draw on these and other disciplines in a book appealing to scholarly and popular audiences. Delaney and Madigan recognize ‘‘that sports are a microcosm of society itself’’ and argue that sports ‘‘provide a diversion from the more serious concerns of life . . . a necessary diversion’’

3. Why some people have fear with some creature like spiders, or sneaks, and some environment like height, or speech infront of tons of people, and others not?

->We tried to live with 120 percent intensity, rather than waiting for death. We read and read, trying to understand why we had to die in our early twenties. We felt the clock ticking away towards our death, every sound of the clock shortening our lives.

REFERENCE:Irokawa Daikichi, from Kamikaze Diaries, Reflections of Japanese Student Soldiers, 2006
