Defining Topic, Angle, Purpose
A profile of Oprah Winfrey
What personal angle can you present on this topic? (Consider what is new about the topic or what unique perspective can be shared about this topic.)
Very few media personalities, especially in the 1980s, were capable of connecting with an audience as much as Oprah Winfrey did. Using her phenomenal gift, she warmed her way into the hearts of millions of viewers, and once she was welcomed into their homes, she entertained, informed and changed millions of lives. She was the only media personality who identified what Americans needed most; an opportunity to change their lifestyles and reinvent themselves (Harris and Watson, 2007). It is amazing how this simple discovery has impacted people's lives not only in America but all over the world, in the process making her a very successful actress and entrepreneur. This discovery…… [Read More]
Profile Writing Techniques: David Grohl and the Foo Fighters
A profile is an extensive look at a newsworthy person or group of persons (Marrs, 2005). It needs to show right from the onset why the subject is newsworthy, and why their story is worth the reader's time. It is up the writer to employ suitable writing techniques that will enable him to weave various aspects of the subject's life together into one coherent piece. In his profile, 'David Grohl and the Foo Fighters', Carl Wilkinson creatively achieves this through the extensive use of quotes and evergreen questions (Marrs, 2000). In paragraph 15, for instance, he makes use of Grohl's (the subject) own words -- "For 16 years, I've had to balance these things; my love and respect for Nirvana and my love and respect for the Foo Fighters" -- to show firsthand how the subject has struggled to…… [Read More]
Composer Stephen Schwartz
Stephen Schwartz is a composer and a lyricist for musical theater in the United States. He has worked in that capacity for more than 40 years. Many people are familiar with his work, even if they have not heard of his name. If they have watched a major movie or been to a major play in the last few decades, they have most likely heard music, lyrics, or both that were created by Schwartz. While he often keeps a low profile, he is an incredibly talented individual who continues to impress the musical community with his creations for major motion pictures and stage plays.
Born in New York, NY, Schwartz is the son of Sheila Lorna, who was a teacher, and Stanley Leonard Schwartz, who worked in the business field (Anderson, 1976). He grew up in Nassau County, in the Williston Park area,…… [Read More]
Criminal Profile of Zodiac Killer
The Zodiac Killer is one of the most elusive serial murders on record in United States history. The Zodiac Killer hunted his victims in and around San Francisco with seven confirmed victims killed during a period lasting from December 20, 1968 to October 11, 1969. Of those seven victims, only two survived the Zodiac Killer's assaults. The Zodiac Killer claimed to have killed upwards of 37 people through the various letters and ciphers sent to the San Francisco Chronicle, although those numbers have never been confirmed.
Based on the Zodiac Killer's first six victims, couples that were assaulted on three separate dates and locations, it can be established individuals that were in a high-risk position for assault were as follows:
People between the ages of 17-22 who appeared to be engaged in a romantic relationship
Couples who drove to an isolated area…… [Read More]
She came to gym regularly -- at least three times per week. This is a good thing, because she very clearly needed it. Nana, young Chinese girl just out of her teens, no longer felt self-conscious about exercising with "thin, beautiful" people. Since her first, nervous visit to the physical health center close to her classes at Northeastern University, Nana has seen many overweight and even obese people, just like herself, coming to the gym, trying to improve themselves and their lives. After the initial surprise of this wore off, Nana began to think that it made sense that there were more fat than thin people at the gym. Why would a thin person need a gym, after all?
On this evening, Nana came into the gym as usual and the receptionist grinned a greeting at her. Her favorite equipment was the stationary bike, because it allowed her…… [Read More]
The government should have ultimate powers on the control of handguns, and possession of firearms made illegal to avoid massacres. If the U.S. had stringent Laws on firearms, the school massacres would not be happening. It is time for the U.S. To accept that the gun laws need immediate reform because of the recurring school mass killing and the ludicrous gun legislation (Blair, 1999).
There are many ways on how to approach a problem and subsequently solving it. The first thing is to realize a problem exists. This will enable the involved parties to do something about the problem in order to solve the problem itself. The circumstances around the problem needs attention, otherwise they may grow to bigger problems that may prove hard to handle. Then, there need be suggestions on how to solve the problem. This will create a start in the problem solving process.

Perhaps the most distinctive aspect of Starbucks is its commitment to the environment and the suppliers they deal with, often in third-world countries. It is a distinctive competency that helps many upscale customers identify with the company, and has earned their loyalty. In addition, the company employs its corporate resources in many civic-minded ways, earning even more loyalty from employees and customers. Starbucks believes in supporting communities where they do business in many ways, from purchasing from local providers to supporting Earth Day activities and literacy programs (Editors, 2007). In addition, they have taken a relatively narrow niche market and expanded it to be extremely successful around the world. Essentially, they sell coffee and snack items, and yet they are consistently growing, opening new stores, and increasing revenue each year. The fact that they are so successful is an extremely important aspect of their competency and business model. Not everyone…… [Read More]
Leadership Profiles of Senior Nurse Executives by E.A. Hemman
In a changing health care environment, the need for a change in leadership is evident. Communities are largely becoming aware of the holistic health care needs of its citizens. These communities are becoming more and more knowledgeable about health care needs and how to meet them. For these and other reasons they have placed a fair burden on the health care system to focus more closely on primary care and communication.
To meet demands of this change health care agencies have moved away from traditional non-practitioner management positions and toward clinically experienced administrators. In this analysis I will describe the findings of the researcher, E.A. Hemman in Leadership Profiles of Senior Nurse Executives, the nurses backgrounds, the rational, the health care application, and I will critique the author's understanding, rationale and conclusions.
Naturally, the role of the clinically experienced administrator falls…… [Read More]
And the plan must define some type of physical activity that has a measurable way of monitoring calorie exertion. The more strenuous activities such as running, aerobic dance or martial arts burn more calories while less moderate activities such as walking and housework will burn fewer calories. A successful weight management plan successfully controls diet, exercise and weight which improve life and health by ridding the body of excess calories.
In conclusion, this report discussed the notion of weight management through the proper maintenance of calories. As demonstrated in one of the grossest movies I have ever seen called "Super Size Me," if an individual takes in too many calories and the body does not have an opportunity to rid itself of those extra calories, obesity is sure to follow. This is a problem in our society because most individuals manage their external appearance like their weight to be…… [Read More]
She also likes to read and use the Internet at coffee shops with her Dell laptop. When not drinking coffee, she enjoys classy restaurants, especially those featuring international cuisine. Additionally, she spends some of her nights at the classier bars in town, catches movies at the theater, and occasionally attends a live show with friends.
The subject is very thrifty with her money, so she does not often go on major shopping trips. Most of what she purchases are services -- high speed Internet, cable, and gym membership to name a few. When she does shop, she often purchases athletic clothes and sports magazines to fuel her interest in fitness, or fine wines and designer foods to entertain her friends. She also enjoys cooking. She shops at small electronics boutiques for hardware related to computer and often shops on the Internet for software. When taking a trip to a mall,…… [Read More]

Billabong is a leading name in the apparel industry of Australia. The company specializes in casual wear, wet suits and accessories. This report is intended to analyze the feasibility of setting up a manufacturing facility in Karachi, Pakistan. It is also intended that this manufacturing plant will be used as a regional office and will be used to introduce the products of Billabong in the Asian market.
During this feasibility study, the methodology used was PESTLE analysis. This method enabled the management to analyze this business proposal from political, economic, social, technological, legal and environmental point-of-view. While analyzing Pakistani market as a future prospective, it was established that this business venture can be subjected to higher risks by political, social, and environmental forces. On the other hand, the legal structure of Pakistan…… [Read More]
One day, the regular leader of the club was not there, and no one knew what to do. Andrea took charge of the meeting, showing a video that she found on the Internet about bullying and sharing some of her experiences. This was followed by a Q&a session with the group.
Outcome of the Situation
As a result of stepping up to the plate to lead the LGBT meeting, Andrea is now a member of the leadership committee. She is a lot more willing to talk about her experiences, and she has started her own group for people who are ready to come out but have not come out of the closet yet. It is her goal to reduce the psychological pain that LGBT people feel as the result of social stigma.

Contingency theories of leadership are situational in nature. The leader applies whichever traits…… [Read More]
Profiling Markets With Psychographics
Profiling the Soft Drink Market with Psychographics
The intent of this analysis is to evaluate the various psychographic segments of the soft drink marketplace. There are seven different psychographic segments included in this analysis, each with drastically different expectations, needs, wants and preferences for soft drinks overall. Beginning with the Thrill Seekers, and progressing to the Trendy Quality Seekers, then the Price-Value Shopper who shops for soft drinks on price and availability, then the Social Shoppers, Brand Aspirationals and Price-Sensitive Affluents round out the entire series of segments. Each of these segments have drastically different needs and approaches to purchasing and consuming soft drinks as this analysis illustrates.
Analysis of Psychographic Segments
Each of the segments are analyzed with specific focus on their preferred types of soft drinks, ways of purchasing them, and a short analysis of their demographics as well. The differences in each segment…… [Read More]
The inside feeling of the employees regarding the environment should be more "family like" and not that much "business like," being a company where employees would happily come to work. As called by Cameron and Quinn, this is a Clan Culture and it would be the ideal situation to be obtained, with high level of involvement of all employees in the life and future of the company (Cameron, Quinn, 1999; Denison, 1990)..
Locations of the Organization
For the initial phase, laboratories and production should start in the specific Latin American country to be decided (most probably Brazil), and the Headquarters in the U.S.A. should commence the commercial and tactical activity.
The commercial offices should be installed in consumer-high regions, in order to decrease the costs of transportation of products from the pre-established warehouses. The same strategy should be used also for the Latin American operations, where X-Quisite should have its…… [Read More]
Profiling Nasir al-Wahishi
The author of this research proposal deigns to cover two basic research questions and issues within this report. First is the general subject of political profiling of current or possible future political leaders and the second is the more specific focus on the case of a man by the name of Nasir al-Wahishi. That particular man is the current proclaimed leader of al-Qaida in the Arab Peninsula, often referred to as AQAP for short. The research problem to be address in this proposal and, by extension, the approved study is the vexing nature of profiling political leaders, what they are capable of, how they control and motivate the people they proselytize to, how to predict who people will glom onto and who will be ignored and so forth. There is also the question of how to deal with "stateless" regimes and groups that exist. Some of these…… [Read More]
profiling an effective tool for law enforcement to use in policing society?
Racial profiling is the practice of law enforcement officers in stopping an individual of a certain race or ethnicity and investigating them based on their ethnicity. uch practices may occur in traffic routines or in matters connected with security. Racial profiling is forbidden in most states and in fact, as the article "RACIAL PROFILING LAW TRENGTHENED" (2012) by Keating, Christopher shows the enate recently strengthened the state's racial profiling law.
On the one hand, as stated in Harcourt (2004), many of the people involved in traffic incidents do seem to be of a similar race. We have the same occurrence with security matters where, over and again, it seems to be most frequently people of Islamic extraction who perpetrate terrorist activities against the West. More so, Fundamentalist Islam has come out overtly against the West threatening the West…… [Read More]
acial profiling is one of the most pressing civil right issues of our time. It extends beyond directs victims to negatively affect all persons of color of all generations and income levels. It undermines the legitimacy of the criminal justice system, and hinders effective policing in the communities that need it the most. A esource Guide on acial Profiling Data Collection System defines racial profiling as any police-initiated action that relies on the race, ethnicity or national origin rather than the behavior of an individual or information that leads the police to a particular individual who has been identified as being or having been, engaged in criminal activity. In the context of traffic stops by police officers, racial profiling should be defined broadly as encompassing officer's use of race or ethnicity as a factor in deciding to stop, question, search or arrest someone. acial profiling has been monitored in a…… [Read More]
Racial Profiling and Discrimination in America
Slavery in the United States formally began during the late seventeenth century, when the country was still a British colony. The institution then expanded and intensified rapidly during the eighteenth century, reaching its peak during the start of the nineteenth. During most of this time, for all intents and purposes, simply to be black was enough to identify one as a slave. That is to say, racial distinctions between whites and people of color were not merely noted, but comprised the economic and legal foundation of American society. Once slavery was abolished, black Americans did not suddenly occupy a station equal to that of their white contemporaries. Jim Crow and anti-miscegenation laws were in effect, usually in the South, and other forms of segregation were commonplace throughout the nation. In the poem "Outcast," Claude McKay clearly identifies the prejudice and the alienation he faces…… [Read More]
If seen from the perspective of law enforcement, racial profiling can be described as "government action that relies on the race, ethnicity, or national origin rather than the behavior of an individual or information that leads the police to a particular individual who has been identified as being, or having been, engaged in criminal activity" (Etienne, 2012).
Though racial profiling is practiced in almost every country of the world, United States is the best example to understand it and its pros and cons. The law enforcement agencies in the United States have often treated the minorities in the country rather unfairly. Before the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S.A., the main victims of racial profiling were Blacks. However, since the occurrence of these terrorist attacks, the law enforcement agencies have primarily targeted Arabs and Muslims for profiling (Bah, 2006).
One can find several notable likenesses among the profiling…… [Read More]
(Harris, 2002, p. 8)
Terrorist acts are both crimes and forms of warfare, and in both respects are unlike what we are used to." 2 Understanding the larger possibilities, such as warfare, law enforcement will be able to make informed decisions on matters concerning data collection. When gathering information it is important to document and standardize every step of the process. This will alleviate any complications when categorizing behaviors or activities and will ensure that all participants in the process are on the same playing field. (onczkowski, 2004, p. 72)
Following the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. which is an example of foreign terrorism, though domestic terrorism has been present in the U.S. For decades, many individuals accepted new standards of security that might infringe upon their rights as citizens to freely travel, assemble and speak, yet more recent protests have been leveled against law enforcement and security measures as…… [Read More]
Race and Arrests
Racial Profiling, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), is a "longstanding and deeply troubling national problem." It involves police and private security personnel targeting people of color based on suspicions, in most cases, that the individual being targeted is up to something illegal. The ACLU states that racial profiling "occurs every day," and the result for the innocent person of color is often a "frightening detention, interrogation, and searches without evidence of criminal activity." The basis for the stop in many cases is a person's perceived race, ethnicity, and national origin -- and in some cases the clothing a person is wearing in addition to the color of his skin. This paper delves into a few of the questions that surround racial profiling: a) why do police feel the need to racially profile people? b) Is it just part of the work of a cop…… [Read More]
They worked with the FTC to define the following four Fair Information Practices, rules designed to prevent companies from abusing the information they receive through online profiling (Computer law tip of the week, 2000):
Rule 1 (Notice): A company must notify customers that it uses online profiling to track their online habits. If it collects personally identifiable information about customers, such as their names, addresses or telephone numbers, the company's website must clearly and unambiguously notify them of this fact before the company collects this information.
Rule 2 (Choice): Depending on the type of information a company collects, there must be opt-in and opt-out options. Opt-in, or obtaining the customer's permission, is required to link personally identifiable information that a company has about a customer such as name, address or telephone number with data acquired about Web surfing habits. Opt-out means that the customers have to be given the chance…… [Read More]
Behavioral scientists and investigate often rely on criminal profiling to narrow down the list of possible suspects in a crime scene or in a potentially threatening situation. This is primarily done by matching personal traits and behavioral patterns of criminals to the way in which the crime was committed and that can help in shrinking the large pool of suspects to a few which makes it relatively easier to solve the crime. (Douglas, J.E., Olshaker, M., 1986). Profiling has often been a target of intense debate by people who feel victimized by the process, however, it must be understood that profiling can never lead to one specific person. It can only help in providing leads to possible suspects and that too by means of their personality traits and behavioral past. In other words, a person who has not committed crimes and doesn't have suspicious behavior or personality traits…… [Read More]
53). The technique has roots in various psychological concepts that examine how individuals make choices about behavior and the ways in which motivations are formed and molded. It also draws on a set of investigatory techniques broadly called environmental criminology. Environmental criminology looks at how physical space influences people to commit crimes, how what particular types of crimes are committed are related to the physical space in which they occur (for example, farming communities tend to be the site of different types of crimes than is the case in housing projects or suburban cul de sacs) and how the type of person who is likely to be victimized is also related to physical space (MacKay, 1999).
Geographic profiling has moved a long way from the old tape-a-map-to-the-wall-and-stick-pushpins in it. Geographic profilers use highly specialized software systems that produce what are called "jeopardy surfaces" or "geoprofile," high detailed three-dimensional models of…… [Read More]
Ethics is an essential part of the individual condition. As an important person who starts up a large business as well as deals on a daily basis with other corporation at all arena of expansion so basically business ethics is lively and glowing plus hotly chat about in boardrooms all over the world. Furthermore for the majority of administration and boards know their accountability goes well beyond periodical results. These corporations consist of one component of a much larger arena that has lost its cooperative acceptance for unprincipled actions. Moreover, if an individual is in scripting copy and keeping a client's electronic business or electronic commerce website think about the consumer confidentiality and legal issues which includes publishing and copywriting for a customer is an evidence of how they are out looked to the rest of the earth. pessimistic or offensive piece of writing published as regards a variety of…… [Read More]
A frustration of societal expectations, rather than outright poverty and rejection, were characteristic of these terrorists' profiles.
This shifting profile should not have come as much of a surprise as it did to experts. As early as 1999 some experts noted, regarding terrorists in general (as opposed to Islamic terrorists) that all "terrorist groups are recruiting members who possess a high degree of intellectualism and idealism, are highly educated, and are well trained in a legitimate profession...More than two-thirds of the terrorists surveyed came from middle-class or even upper-class backgrounds" (Hudson 1999: 46; 49)
In Britain, there remains a concern about Pakistani training camps, given the large population of Pakistanis in the region. One red flag, the parents of a terrorist noted, that they did not spot was when their rebellious son was sent away to relatives in Pakistan, and he came back sober and religious. They thought their effort…… [Read More]
" Ms. Parker invited those having trouble to return to the carpet area for additional instruction. She asked these students to get clipboards for their worksheets and to bring their manipulatives as well. There was some time wasted in this transition, but the students were generally eager to comply. Ms. Parker guided the students through each of the problems on the worksheet. She used her manipulatives on the board, either coins or cubes, and encouraged the students to do the same. One boy complained that Ms. Parker was "going too fast" but another student moved next to him and provided some assistance. By the time the math hour was over, most students had finished their worksheets. Ms. Parker did not require those that had not finished to stay in for recess. She collected the unfinished papers and promised the students that they would work on them together the next day…… [Read More]
That's proving a business opportunity for Krispy Kreme, McDonald's and other American fast-food chains. For Krispy Kreme, Japan is part of its overseas expansion -- a crucial element of its revival plan announced earlier this year. The chain, based in inston-Salem, N.C., saw its stock collapse two years ago under the weight of overexpansion in the U.S., an accounting investigation and the low-carb diet craze...[Now a] Japanese man carries boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts back to his office...two Japanese girls devour doughnuts last week at a Krispy Kreme shop in Tokyo. Long lines form outside the shops, sometimes leading to waits of an hour" (Kageyama 2007). But because of more health-conscious consumers in other regions of America where the Southern, Americana image of the company has less cache and novelty, this strategy has not been successful. Also, the idea of a 'trans-fat free doughnut' has not quelled fears about health…… [Read More]

Furthermore, existing vulnerabilities of the airline industry are not taken into consideration until a disaster occurs.

Though not the sole operator in its industry in Colombia, the company provides the vast majority of oil and natural gas products to the domestic market, and its international market share makes it one of the world's thirty-five largest petroleum companies (Sourcewatch 2010). Ecopetrol has also established a very strong market presence in the Caribbean and South America; fluctuations in purchasing overall and through competition with other regions -- particular the Middle East -- make the establishment of a single concrete measure of market segment fairly difficult (Ecopetrol 2010).
Domestic and Export Strategy
Again, Ecopetrol's state-owned status plays a large role in determining the company's strategy for in its domestic market. The company has essentially monopolized much of the hydrocarbon resources that exist within Colombia's borders, and through its existence as a governmental organization has a much greater deal of price flexibility than its domestic competitors (Ecopetrol 2010; Sourcewatch 2010).…… [Read More]
She does feel she is an extravert and would prefer to be around people than alone. In addition one of the reasons she feels she learns about behaviors best is by observing them is that she senses their true motives and ambitions. She also agrees with the part of the test that labels her P. because she goes on her perceptions of situations.
When I took the test I had similar results in that I was denoted an ESTP. I agree with the test results as well. I am an extravert personality. I love to talk and be noticed. In addition I sense things and use that sensing to base many decisions on both in my personal and professional life.

Such assistance allows him to focus more clearly on his school work and lessens his tendency to be distracted by others and by the classroom activity. The presence of the paraprofessional also seems to enable him to be more confident in his interactions with the other students in the classroom. Since the beginning of the school year, John has been participating in a contract (behavioral plan) that was drafted in an attempt to provide him with some structure. For the moment, John continues to have occasional problems but, overall, he has done well within the confines of the contract and a continuation of the contract terms would seem to be in his best interests. At the present time, there is no compelling need to adjust the contract.
As has been already mentioned, John functions best under the guidance of his paraprofessional. The presence of the paraprofessional appears to provide…… [Read More]

A manager in the public or not-for-profit sectors can be considered as a person with vision. A good manager is driven and is committed to achieving her goals and vision. Managers are the catalyst within the organization responsible for focusing their attention on problems that need to be fixed, and for tackling the situation at hand. This reminds me of Cooper's treatment of managerial responsibility where he writes that there are three levels of responsibility: objective responsibility -where clear expectations and accounts of accountability are existent at each level of the organization; subjective responsibility -- teammates in organization are involved in organizational decision and policy making; heightening the objective and subjective…… [Read More]
Profile of a Community Organization: The Kiwanis Club of Ocean Beach San Diego
There are many different ways that a social organization can influence and impact a community, and a great many moral and ethical implications and effects on society of the existence of these organizations and the actions that these organizations take. From gathering and consolidating funding towards various charitable causes to actually engaging in direct service to the community, these organizations are often more important in providing for the basic needs of some of the most disadvantaged members of a community than the governmental organizations in that community. Exploring one such organization in the San Diego community, and more specifically in the Ocean Beach neighborhood of San Diego, will help to illuminate the importance of these community organizations generally.

The population of young professionals in Downtown Detroit is increasing by the day and so is the retail of the region. There are many luxury buildings that have been built now. The development schemes towards the side of east river are now covering many luxury condominium progresses. This has resulted in attracting many young citizens to the Downtown of the city along with the renewed New Center and Midtown areas. According to a study that was conducted in the year 2007, it was found out that the residents of new downtown of Detroit were most young professionals. This meant that 57% of these people were aged between 25 to 34, 45% of them were graduates and 34% of them had obtained a master's level degree in their profession. There has been an ever increasing desire to live close to the urban areas and therefore has resulted in…… [Read More]
Tyrell "Tank" Williams; South Bronx, New York City
When asked why people call him Tank, Tyrell Benjamin Williams responded, "because I'm huge and you can't stop me." This attitude is clearly represented in Mr. Williams' lifestyle of street crime and drug dealing. Tyrell was born in the Stuyvesant district of Brooklyn, New York on a cold morning in January of 1984. He spent his very early years in a traditional family in this relatively pleasant neighborhood. Though on the eve of Williams' entry into kindergarten, his father informed his mother than he had found another woman and he was moving out. Tyrell recalls this as one of the most traumatic experiences of his young life. He remembers looking up to his father and wanting to make him proud. When asked about his feelings directly regarding this experience Mr. Williams said he was "heartbroken."

The one-time immigration lawyer moonlighted as an editor at the Latin American Review Press and was impressed with her boss, a 90-year-old woman. This experience has inspired Mahler, who eventually wants to have her own journal or press.
This independent streak dates to her upbringing. "I was a very latchkey kid," she explains, and was raised by her siblings. As a result, she was a bit of a neighborhood terror as well. "I even had my own army of 1st graders that I made do push-ups and if they didn't, I sent them to jail, which was the jungle gym."
For now, however, her focus is on Emory and her family. She married her high school sweetheart, Andrew Mahler, and the couple now reside in Stockbridge. Anna wants to focus on building bonds with her students as well. "I hope to make lasting personal and professional relationships and contribute to…… [Read More]
If the company launches an immediate public relations campaign to improve its public perception, it might be able to turn this situation around. This is a definite possibility, given Palm Inc.'s access to the deep pockets of Hewlett Packard. The best strategy will be to try to expand market share at the expense of Apple's iPhone 4. This would provide it with an immediate increase in market share. The other companies could be taken on at a later time as the companies fortunes got better or their products could be bought out using Hewlett Packard's considerable financial resources.

By attempting to suppress debate about the subject, Monsanto created and subsequently reinforced the notion that BGH is a harmful substance. Eventually, the company was forced to exit the business, because of the damage they did to the product's reputation.
There are times when good ethics demands that a new product innovation be dropped, and this was likely one of those times. By pursuing profit instead, Monsanto has put the health of many Americans at risk and called even more attention to their unethical practices.

Not only are they crucial for the movement of people, but they are crucial for the rapid movement of time-sensitive goods. Therefore the government has an interest in the survival of the industry. Government can and has involved itself through monetary policy in sustaining or resuscitating struggling airlines in order to maintain the overall strength of the industry.
Taxation is another area where governments affect the industry. This again relates to the tight margins, as taxation represents a key expense for airlines. Changes in the tax regime directly affect airlines' after tax profits. The government can encourage or discourage the industry based on its taxation policies. The IATA believes the airline industry to be more heavily taxed than some of its substitutes, and has an entire program to deal with the issue of taxation, highlighting taxation's relevance to the industry.
Another way in which fiscal policy can impact the industry…… [Read More]
In case, a vision conveys an ideal, it communicates a benchmark of excellence and a clear choice of positive values. If the vision in its turn is also unique, it conveys and stirs pride in being exclusive from other organizations. (Leadership Chaper12)
If vision guides the employees from within, another new paradigm 'esults-based leadership' displays the effectiveness of leadership which put a continuous importance of results. Hence effective leadership is attributes multiplied by results. This importance on results stems from the fact that in majority of literature on leadership there is absence of attention towards results. Majority of them concentrate on organizational capabilities like flexibility, mission-aimed or value-based or on leadership competencies like character, trust and competencies and potential. Through helping leaders at every level achieve results, results-based leadership liberates efficiency from limitation of hierarchy and the restrictions of position. esults-based leaders describe results by understanding the needs of the…… [Read More]
'In New York City, the controls are better. Since Sept. 11, as police are looking for terrorists and those who mail anthrax, the controls have increased. So crime continues to go down. Everyone is much more alert.'" (NewsMax Wires)
Queens, NY has also become really diverse with people from different ethnic and racial backgrounds coming in and living there. There are large numbers of Hispanics, Asians and African-American in Queens. However there is a difference in the drop of crime rate in Queens and Brooklyn. "Year to date, overall crime is down 7.1% in Queens, 5.6% in Brooklyn" (Anonymous). However the overall general change is that in both communities, crime rates have plummeted and there is increased safety for the civilians. Normally in areas where there is a wide diversity of people living, there is an increased rate in crime and although there has been unemployment in the entire city…… [Read More]
He admits that he killed her but he states that it was an accident. In an event in which the result is death the defense of involuntary manslaughter is available if the defense can show that it was not an intentional killing.
He also used a partial wrestling defense. He was not allowed to use a complete wrestling defense because the professional wrestlers who were asked to testify to the moves that Tate had seen on television and how they were done refused to testify. The judge did not order them to testify but did allow tapes to be shown of the moves that Tate said he performed on his friend.
Tate's attorneys could have also used a manslaughter defense. Manslaughter can be used when a death occurred, the defendant knew that his or her actions might cause injury but they were not anticipating a death.

Technical designer: Profile
A fashion technical designer is responsible for the 'nuts and bolts' construction of a garment. A technical designer is given the responsibility of taking "a lead designer's creations from the prototype stage through to full production. They work up specifications for new clothing and accessories, have samples made, and work with marketing and production facilities to ensure that finished pieces are made correctly and profitably" (Technical fashion designer, 2012, Fashion Schools). The lead designer may have the broad, sweeping vision, but the technical designer works to make that vision a reality. Taking measurements, ensuring measurements are standardized, working to create a perfect fit, and working with patterns are all part of the daily life of a tech designer. One technical designer stated that she used her associate degrees in fashion pattern maker more than her general bachelor's degree in fashion in her work.

Four types of profiles are 1) the offender profile, 2) the victim profile, 3) the DNA profile, and 4) the geographic profile. Offender profiling involves obtaining information from law enforcement regarding the types of people who commit crimes (Douglass & Burgess, 1986). From the data compiled about crimes and individuals who commit crimes, an offender profile is developed to identify the type of person who might commit crime. These types are categorized according to crime, with a specific profile developed for a specific crime. For example, the profile of an individual who might be an arsonist would differ from the profile of an individual who might be a drug dealer.
Victim profiling involves creating a database of information on victims of crimes obtained from law enforcement. Specific crimes are linked to specific types of victims and a profile is created of individuals who are likely to be victims of a…… [Read More]
Criminal and acial Profiling
Criminal profiling is the act of using a profile of crime in order to locate and identify suspects: it is, in the words of Grafton (2008), "where you look at a specific crime and you try to determine -- does it occur in a specific way and is it caused by a specific type of person." acial profiling, on the other hand, is the act of using race to locate and identify suspects -- "to target people" (Dutta, 2010). Criminal profiling is part of a process that law enforcement agents employ in order to get a better understanding of and hold on crime and crime-ridden areas. acial profiling, which can often be confused with criminal profiling because criminal profiles often produce a theme of "ethnic group in control for a specific type of crime," is part of a process of harassing individuals based primarily on their…… [Read More]
e. height, weight, age, race, etc.), in connection with the investigation of specific criminal activity, that information allows authorities to narrow the search for individuals who match those identifying characteristics. The process is perfectly logical and obviously makes infinitely more sense than continuing to search for individuals who bear no resemblance to the descriptions provided by reliable sources.
However, the same legitimate techniques with respect to specific evidence of crimes also has a history of impermissible application in ways that deprive subjects of police investigation of their fundamental constitutional rights. For example, in the late 20th century, the U.S. Customs Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration both made extensive use of what they called "criminal indicators" in connection with their efforts to apprehend criminal drug traffickers as they attempted to enter the U.S. At the borders (Schmalleger, 2007).
Among other criteria, those sets of indicators including Hispanic origin and language,…… [Read More]
Racial Profiling: An Overview of the Debate
According to the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), racial profiling is one of the most controversial issues in America today. The data is clear that there is a stronger perception within many historically discriminated-against minority groups that profiling goes on and this has had a negative impact on community-police relations. Although data suggests that often members of minority groups perceive themselves as singled out by the police the NIJ also reports that satisfaction with the police is often more strongly correlated with neighborhood crime rates than race ("Race, Trust and Police Legitimacy"). The evidence is ambiguous regarding the extent to which racial profiling actually takes place. Some police supporters contend that higher rates of searches of minority suspects are likely to be due to a confluence of factors, including crime rates within specific neighborhoods, while critics point out that even minorities who are…… [Read More]
In terms of the theories that are put forward in the book by Simon et al. (2004), Gary's profile conforms to a number of theoretical perspectives. In general however this profile tends to concur with the point made by the authors that the criminal behavior is largely a result of lax or ineffective parenting. (Simon et al., 2004, p.15) as this book states, there are numerous studies that refer to the importance of family and home environment as well as problematic parenting in the development of developmental antisocial tendencies. This also refers to larger problems when these become permanent behavior patterns and extend into later life. (Simon et al., 2004, p.15)
Furthermore, parents are seen as "primary argents of socializations" of children and therefore they play a major role in the creation of negative and "abnormal "tendencies in developing children. (Simon et al., 2004, p.16)
Theorists like Gleuck and others…… [Read More]
government have the right to racially profile?
We all stereotype others to some extent or other. These are natural, evolutionary ways of perceiving others, namely categorizing them into particular groups. Stereotypes are often erroneous, since people, are, after all, individuals rather than categories, and, therefore, stereotyping is often considered a subjective negative thing to do. On the other hand, it is argued that sometimes, people in positions of authority may be compelled to stereotype and to categorize certain groups for the sake of public security.
One such instance is racial profiling, perpetrated by the government and by, for instance, airport security, particularly when applied to people of Middle East extraction in order to ascertain that they are not carrying bombs or other harmful weapons on their person. On the one hand, the political times warrants this racial profiling; on the other hand, instances such as Timothy McVeigh have taught us…… [Read More]

Intentions of the Group
Profiling terrorists can be helpful for counter-terrorism efforts. While there is no one terrorist profile, there are "risk factors for involvement," (Kershaw, 2010). One of the risks that has been most explored in scholarly research is the need for a collective, shared identity in the terrorist organization (Post, Ali, Henderson, Shanfield, Victoroff & Weine, 2009). This is true for the Aryan Nation, recognized as a top domestic terrorism threat by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). The Aryan Nations Group dubs itself a "Premier Christian Identity Church Organization," with the word "identity" featuring firmly (Aryan Nations, 2013). Members of the Aryan Nation also emphasize the "nation" part of their identity, creating an artificial in group-out group status that enforces personal and collective identities.

Section V: Summary
Ms. Cormier was nervous about being observed. At the end of the lesson, she seemed near tears and confessed that she believed the lesson had not gone well at all. The supervisor assured Ms. Cormier that the lesson idea was a good one. It was suggested that, in the future, Ms. Cormier provide students with clearer direction so they would not use questions as a delaying tactic when they were charged to sit down and begin the assignment. It was suggested that Ms. Cormier include a list of "brainstormed" words on the board that students could use. It was also suggested that she give students a writing prompt rather than an open-ended…… [Read More]
In this way, it has even come to supercede basic email interaction as a way of establishing lines of communication. Moreover, the nature of the forum is such that the lines of communication are always open and function in a way that is multidirectional.
As a result, Facebook is today continually redefining both the way people use the internet, and even more importantly, the way that people intercourse socially. Such is demonstrated by the evolving purposes which social networking sites have come to reflect, increasingly eschewing previously prominent cultural tendencies emphasizing modesty, privacy and disclosure only to a close circle of friends. The aggressive expansion of one's social circle via such networking avenues has produced myriad unconscious rationales for sharing such personal information. As Salkever (2009) observes, this has become an ever more persistent condition of youth culture, with personal disclosure mirroring these instincts amongst peers and in a celebrity…… [Read More]
