Examine the moral requirements of criminal justice. In your analysis examine the issues of authority, power, and discretion.

Big Data Big Data

Words: 1643 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 97714001

Big Data

Faris (2013) speculates as to whether NSA leaks will compromise big data's future. The article, published on the website Dataversity, notes that there is public concerns about data leaks at NSA. Consumers are becoming more aware about just how much of their information is available to the government. The author calls into question the dichotomy of private data and public data, in particular were corporate entities are gathering data, and then that data finds its way into the hands of government. The author concludes by noting that big data is a growing field, but there are still going to be customers who are wary.

The point Faris makes about customers being willing participants is valid in that most people are perfectly willing to divulge information. Only when they overtly know that this information is being used to market to them may they have a problem with it, but…… [Read More]

God's Existence And Evil Existence

God's existence and the existence of evil

When considering William Paley's Argument from Design, St. Thomas Aquinas's Cosmological Argument, and St. Anselm's Ontological Argument, one can only come to one conclusion. As superficial as this might seem for some believers, the conclusion is not that God exists. Sometimes it is better to be superficial, as this provides a person with the ability to see matters from a general perspective. Considering the complexity of things can lead to serious dilemmas, taking into account that as long as someone wants to believe that God exists, the respective individual can go through great efforts with the purpose to come up with a theory that can convince many to accept it. This is exactly what happened in the cases of Paley, Aquinas, and Anselm. These people devised ingenious theories that are hard to contradict by simply relating to the…… [Read More]

Just in Time

Words: 1221 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 76337014

Accounting

The just-in-time inventory model has become popular in both retail and manufacturing situations in recent years, because it has many advantages that appeal to companies, and because technological innovation has made this system easier to implement. The just-in-time (JIT) system involves receiving goods only when they are needed, in order to avoid a buildup of inventory (Investopedia, 2014). The traditional inventory method was to have a buffer of inventory. This provided security for managers, knowing that they would not have outages (in retail) or downtime (in manufacturing). The buffer approach to inventory, however, comes with high costs that are associated with carries this inventory -- in particular warehouses, additional staff and the risk that the inventory becomes obsolete (MindTools, 2014). This paper will examine the just-in-time inventory concept, and the case study of Wal-Mart, one of the earliest proponents of JIT, will be used.

They can also measure avoidance, as there are people who are so fearful of the Muslim culture that they will go out of their way to avoid Muslims and not have to interact with them in any way. There is a social stigma to Muslims in the eyes of many people, and that stigma is not always about hatred. It is much more often about fear, but that fear can manifest itself in different ways -- and some people seem angry at a group of individuals they are afraid of, as a way to try to cover up their fear. That fear can come from a lack of understanding, which can be worked through with knowledge and information.

Mass Comm Final

One theme that is a constant throughout the study of contemporary mass communication is the function that mass communication holds in the democratic political process. Although the present-day concepts of "media" or "mass communication" would have been unknown at the time of the Bill of Rights, it is nonetheless clear that the First Amendment's guarantee of freedom of the press essentially enshrines in law the notion that an informed and intellectually engaged electorate is crucial for the health of the American political system. And certainly the drafters of the U.S. Constitution were familiar with the notion that clear reasoned argumentation that could reach a broad majority of citizens was necessary for the political system they envisioned: there would not be a U.S. Constitution if there had not been Thomas Paine's "Common Sense," a widely-reproduced pamphlet laying out the basic argument for American independence.

Inspector General Policies

Inspector General

One of the most important aspects of government is trust. This is because the people rely on administrators to do the right thing and always take their well-being into consideration. The Inspector General has the power to investigate and indentify problems with various labor laws and the Department of Labor. A recent study uncovered major problems when it came to employee pension plans. To fully understand what is happening requires examining the study. This will be accomplished by looking at common themes from the report and areas to improve upon critical weaknesses. Together, these different elements will illustrate how to deal with key challenges when it comes to the way various policies and directives are enforced. ("Semi Annual Report to Congress," 2012)

In addition, Fortis Healthcare has grown to become a worldwide leader in the delivery of a wide variety of sophisticated medical care in areas such as heart surgery. Although this is a positive aspect, particularly because it has led to the increase of medical tourism, this trend will result to adverse effects in the future (Fortis Hospital, 2001). This is because the company is gradually losing the desire to cater for the local people, and it is focusing on foreign care seekers.

Therefore, the local people may opt to seek healthcare services from other emerging healthcare providers, which can make the organization lose local dominance in its home country. In addition, the company always sees an opportunity in failed healthcare firms, and that is why it seeks to acquire them. However, it fails to calculate the costs involved in the improvements of the organizations. The company has some cases in…… [Read More]

One of the most well-known quotes from Ancient Greece belongs to Heraclitus who said the "Nothing is constant in life but change." People have a natural tendency to resist change as a means of self-preservation and regard it as having most often a negative impact on one's existence. This is particularly true in changes that occur in the professional life or the personal / emotional environment.

Experience has proven that change always opens a new direction in life and a new path to follow. However, there are situations in which all people do not embrace change and their reluctance in fact represents their most important shortfall.

When human civilization first development, most goods were produced at a subsistence level, and this was the sum total economic activity -- there was no money and no profit. Over time, advances in production techniques, especially in agriculture gave rise to surpluses, which could then be traded. The barter of agricultural surplus in ancient communities can be said to be the first entrepreneurism (Allis, 2014). More formal entrepreneurism of the type that we would recognize today, featuring the investment of capital in a small enterprise designed specifically to earn profit, would have emerged as people collected into village and towns, allowing for specialization into trades. These trades would have produced above…… [Read More]

Conceptual Framework for Accounting Managers

Management

MANAGERIAL ACCOUNTING

Reasons that indicate that managers need to be knowledgeable about, understand, and use accounting information

Management accounting mechanisms are official systems for collecting, planning, and communicating information about the company's activities. While conventional management accounting techniques used to pay attention to historical and financial information about activities within the company, modern management accounting techniques also provide external, non-financial, and future-oriented information

If a manager searches for information to choose between possible considerations, to set objectives or to figure out a sufficient level and mix of sources to accomplish those objectives, he is using information for decision-making. The manager can also search for information after a choice has been applied. In that case, he uses the information to benchmark against organized results to make sure that the input, procedures, and outcome are in tune, to accomplish business objectives. This use is commonly known as focused information monitoring (Hermanson,…… [Read More]

Management Concepts and Theory

Words: 828 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 72808712

Management Theory vs. Organizational Functions

Herzberg's Two-Factor Theory is useful for raising awareness of the contribution between job challenge and responsibility in motivating employees toward higher productivity and employee retention. It has also been useful in identifying and assessing customer satisfaction characteristics. Fishbein's Reasoned Action Theory is useful for explaining why particular behaviors are happening and the underlying causes of the behavior. Both theories are useful for identifying problem areas and planning actions for improvement in organizational behaviors.

According to (Bolm, 2012), the Two-factor Theory claims individual perception of satisfaction or dissatisfaction relates to discrete intrinsic and extrinsic variables where a variable can uniquely influence satisfaction or dissatisfaction, but not both. Motivator (intrinsic) factors include achievement, recognition, and responsibility where hygiene (extrinsic) factors include policy, status, and security. Motivator factors, when present, increase job motivation and satisfaction, but, when not present, show no effect. Hygiene factors, when present, show no…… [Read More]

Financial statements are produced in order to help stakeholders understand the financial condition of the entity in question. Different types of entities, however, have different reporting requirements. A self-employed individual has very different needs from a limited company, and these are different from not-for-profit organisations as well. This paper will examine some of these differences.

The first class of business is the self-employed individual. There are no reporting standards for self-employed individuals. Such individuals, when engaged in business for themselves, need only report to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs their revenues and expenses for the year. A self-employed individual has no other stakeholder besides himself/herself and Her Majesty, so there is no need for complex standardized reporting. The self-employed individual can choose what method of accounting they want to follow -- accrual or cash basis. Cash basis accounting is accepted for the self-assessment tax return, whereas it would not be…… [Read More]

Thus, they were going to face issues in setting up the ecommerce site because they lacked the know how to write HTML code or what software they would need to give the site the power to grow long-term. Because the company was just starting up, hiring an outside third party would have not been feasible. Thus, they had to develop and fine tune a strategic plan to get the site up and running.

Thus, the company decided to go with a hosting vendor who would take on the back end costs for a much smaller monthly fee. Yahoo! was ultimately the hosting service that was chosen.

Age and the Perception of Psychological Climate

Words: 1880 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Only the Literature Review chapter Paper #: 1649243

Psychological Climate

The notion of the individual's environment as a direct determinant of one's behavior has been a cornerstone of learning theorists such as Skinner (1953) and Lewin's field theory (B = f [P, E]; Lewin, 1951). While Skinner concentrated on how environmental contingencies and reinforcement shaped behavior, Lewin's original conceptualization consisted of both dispositional characteristics of individual that include both genetic and the chacterological variables (P; the Person) and the psychological environment (E; the psychological environment). As attempts to explain the totality of influences on a person's behavior as developed by Lewin the notion of psychological environment was expanded to include the social, situational, and organizational influences that contribute to behavior (Forehand & Von Haller, 1964; Glick, 1985).

Analysis and Implications for Social Protection Policy and Programs in Africa

the role of the welfare state

The perception of welfare state requires the government to promote and protect the social well-being of citizens and their economic situation. This is guided by the doctrine of public responsibility, capital sharing, and equal opportunity. The general term covers a wide variety of social and economic organization. Social welfare is an imprecise and encompassing term. In most cases, it is defined in terms of interventions and organized activities or some other elements that suggest programs and policies aimed at improving the well-being of individuals at risk and responding to recognized social problems. (Handa, Devereux, and Webb, 2011) have shown that the concept…… [Read More]

Ethics Awareness Is Bogus

Words: 922 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 78905478

Ethics Awareness

Ethics are at the core of human behavior and decision-making. This paper evaluates the results of the Ethics Awareness Inventory, a proprietary software designed to measure a person's ethical stance. The results of the Ethics Awareness Inventory can be applied to that person's psychology, and can help supervisors make human resources decisions related to the individual. Moreover, organizational psychologists especially benefit from ethical inventories. It is important to apply ethical awareness and psychological principles to personal, social, and organizational issues.

The Ethics Awareness Inventory is proprietary software designed to profit off of the need to evaluate and analyze every single human decision. Available for a select group of people, the Ethics Awareness Inventory "is a program that can evaluate one's ethical style," in the same way a quiz can evaluate what food, country, or sexual position is most appropriate (Collack, 2007). As with most quizzes, the Ethics Awareness…… [Read More]

Words: 14782 Length: 54 Pages Document Type: Multiple chapters Paper #: 50548530

Portfolio Management

In the project portfolio management context, a portfolio is an aggregation of active programs, projects and other business activities that indicate an organization's priorities, investments and allocation of resource (The standard for portfolio management, 2008). According to the editors of PM Network, "Portfolio management is the centralized management of one or more of those portfolios to achieve specific strategic business objectives" (2008, p. 75). Using project portfolio management techniques, organizational decision-makers are able to identify, group, assess, select, prioritize, authorize, terminate and conduct ongoing reviews of different elements of the portfolio to make sure they are aligned with the organization's current and future strategies (The standard for portfolio management, 2008). In this way, organizational resources are optimized (The standard for portfolio management, 2008). It is important to note that project portfolios involve and affect every part of organizations, including functions such as marketing, finance, corporate communications and human…… [Read More]

Community Policing and Psychology

Words: 2590 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 57356611

Community policing is a strategy that requires both new attitudes and commitments from citizens and new attitudes and commitments from police officers. It builds on the basic practices of policing by emphasizing cooperation between the police department and the citizenry, by emphasizing the prevention of crimes as opposed to just catching perpetrators, and by developing long-term solutions to existing and potential problems in the community (U.S. Department of Justice [DOJ], nd). The goals of community policy include reducing crime; reducing the fear of crime; restoring and maintaining a sense of order to the community; and building and strengthening bonds between the citizens, police, and state and local governments (DOJ, nd).

The history of community policing goes as far back as the beginnings of governmental policing and the beginnings of law enforcement agencies. Sir Robert Peel is generally acknowledged as the originator of modern law enforcement agencies as he spearheaded the…… [Read More]

Lear was a play that was produced back in 1971 and it was not just any play. Lear had three-act and it was created by the British dramatist Edward Bond.

Later on, it was brought back to life ore revived by the Royal Shakespeare Company with Bob Peck, sometime in 1982 and rejuvenated…… [Read More]
