FIFA Corruption Scandal Report

Improved Essays
For my blog project, I have been focusing on the FIFA corruption scandal that started in 2010 during the World Cup in Africa. When I was researching blogs, many blogs were viewable however, most of the ones I clicked on were only the main post, they had never received any responses. I luckily found three blogs after a while of searching. The only downside is that the comments and posts on these blogs were not current for 2016. Many of the comments were posted roughly around the exact same time, there was not a lot of flexibility in dates of the posted material. Once I found these blogs, I checked them once a day for about a week. They didn’t change at all. There were never any new posts or comments within them. One of the blogs was posted by the common known website, BBC News. The other two were posted by websites I never really heard of one being called the “Internal Auditor” and the other being called “The World”
The first blog I looked at was

This blog, written by Richard Chamber was more informative on prevention of such bribery or corruption in large corporations like FIFA. As suggested by the title this blog focuses on internal audits in prevention of fraud or bribery in situations such as ones like FIFA. Chambers uses the FIFA scandal to basically describe the process of performing an internal audit. He breaks it down into the 5 functions and after describing a factor of the FIFA situation, he then goes to give a brief lesson on what is learned from the example. Chambers blog was the shortest of the three blogs I reviewed. It was another black and white color scheme with black, professional font. He did not incorporate any pictures within his blog. I did also think his blog was effective. The way he broke down different issues in FIFA, and then created lessons that emphasize the importance of preventing acts of fraud like

Gladwell brings in another blogger who states, “There was no Twitter Revolution inside of Iran.” (316). Claiming that if western countries were simply not trying to reach out in a way the Iran Revolution could understand. Say that if they were they would have considered using Farsi the national language for Iran.

    The argument of Graeff et al. (2014) about networked framing provides plurality into the framing of public issues was true, while social media neglect some key points reported critically by legacy media. For example, traditional media extensively reported the allegation about the BattleBus used to propagandise in crucial marginal constituencies, while there were no tweets mentioned the BattleBus in the sample. Besides, the critiques of the Tory party such as “fracking, racism and corruption” were mentioned frequently on Twitter, with no appearance on mainstream media. On the contrary, the errors in dealing with the announcement about election expenses was reported in 10 news stories, while no such theme on Twitter.…

    That’s not to say it has been nothing but smooth sailing though. I’ve still been fighting my mental illness without much rest for the whole semester. But the fact I was able to actually juggle four classes the entire time, and kick ass in every one of them, especially this one, blows my mind. Sure, I didn’t do the Journal, and maybe I came unprepared most days for not having read what I should’ve. But the point is I gave this class my all.…

    First of all, the website I chose is called Quackwatch. This CAM website does not include scholarly published articles. The authors of the articles and website overseer are well recognized, but there is no specification of the publisher on the site or articles. Therefore, I would assume that the articles on the site are not formally peer-reviewed by a panel, but rather self published by the website operator Dr. Stephen Barrett. The articles are only published and revised in English online making it easy for the information to be updated and commented on in the discussion board.…

    Since the day I started, I have not had a single Starbucks pumpkin spice latte because only one latte has about 300 calories. I have not used the pumpkin spice coffee creamer either that I usually buy. I have had my coffee once a day in the morning with no sugar or creamer. In addition, I’m using MyFitnessPal application which helps me to count my calories daily. It’s very useful, especially when, like me, having a busy…

    I spent over twenty-three years as an employee of McNary Golf Club. In that time there were a lot of ups and until a few years ago, only a few downs. In the last few years I learned some very discouraging lessons about loyalty and that it was not a two way street. With the help of of a handful of classes I took at George Fox University in the Adult Degree Program, I was able to dig deep and make one of the most difficult decisions of my life; to leave the only job I have known my entire adult life. Concrete Experience In August of 1990 I started working at McNary Golf Club in Keizer Oregon.…

    Upon finding out I had to use a Linux for a week I was a little concerned. I have had prior interest with the open source operating system but never enough to actually want to put it on my machine.I have read and heard horror stories that certain drivers couldn 't be found or that wireless couldn 't be enabled in the system due to multiple reasons. But, I went in with an open mind and was pleasntly surprised with the outcome and ease of access that Ubuntu made available to me. Installation was fast and easy, the most difficult thing I ran into was finding out which drive I wanted the Ubuntu to load on. Actually said operating system was not so fast and easy.…

    The one resource which did keep popping up in my Internet searches was a website called “StopSpokaneGangs.Org”, a resource built by the local and federal law enforcement agencies in and around Spokane. To my dismay, the website only had a contact page to report graffiti and gang activity, no actual outreach programs or assistance to those looking to help kids in need. After reading through every link on the site, I came across a lone email address, which I contacted, seeking to learn more about the gang situation in the area. After three or four days, I was contacted by Officer Adam Valdez with the Spokane Police Department’s Spokane Regional Safe Streets Task Force, and he graciously accepted an invitation for an…
