espect for Authority
Linguistically, the English word "authority" is derived from the Latin auctoritas, which means advice, opinion, influence, or command. The word has a number of contextual meanings -- in politics and government it usually means power "the ability to influence," and somewhat of a claim to legitimacy; in psychology it means power over the individual; in political philosophy it means balancing freedom of action with the greater good; and in the social sciences it can be seen in a larger set of individual and cultural structures, all which allow someone or a group of individuals to make decisions based on some semblance of obligation and ceded individual power ( az, ed., 1990).
Max Weber, considered the founder of sociology, is most famous for his works surrounding the sociology of religion and government, and how those two institutions shaped, controlled, and contributed to humankind. Whereas Marx (a strong influence…… [Read More]
The new definition, critics contend, is nonsensical as "it would be highly unusual for any employee, even a Vice President of Human esources, to spend more than 50% of his or her weekly time doing hiring, firing and disciplining employees" and direction forms the bulk of most supervisor's job responsibilities (ESPECT, 2009, Foster Swift). Approximately 8 million current workers would be declassified from their current supervisory status (ESPECT, 2009, Foster Swift).
In other words, a very large proportion of what would once be considered white collar 'management-level' persons would now be eligible for unionization. "Under current law, a supervisor is considered an agent of management and owes a duty of undivided loyalty to the employer in labor-management relations, such as during union organizing campaigns, grievances, picketing and strikes. That duty would be compromised by the ESPECT Act" (ESPECT, 2009, Foster Swift). The supervisors would have dual loyalty, between labor and…… [Read More]
While it does not in any way excuse illegal hostile actions against non-combatants, it does illustrate that one of the purposes of having rules for war is, precisely, to avoid some of the consequences that are readily foreseeable when either side violates them.
In many cases, North Vietnamese civilians were directly involved in supporting the war effort. Frequently, combatants disguised themselves by day as civilians and then attacked U.. forces at night. In other cases, civilians helped lure U.. soldiers into ambushes and booby traps. While even that does not excuse retaliating against (other) civilians or attacking the entire village in retaliation, it does illustrate that violating the rules of war by one side is likely to provoke hostile responses in kind. That is simply human nature and it is one of the many reasons that both sides in any conflict should always respect the rules of warfare.

respect for the dead. There are four references used for this paper.
Today there are many ethical issues being discussed in terms of respect for the dead. It is important to examine some of these issues and the facts concerned with this subject.
The burial sites of mummies are constantly being disturbed under the guise of studying the past. In 2003, German researchers disturbed a crypt of a 2,500-year-old mummy in Egypt, to obtain and analyze embalming material found at the site (http://media.dsc.discovery.com/news/briefs/20031027/mummies.html).
Egyptologists have been searching for years for the tomb of Queen Nefertiti, King Tutankhamun's step-mother and mother-in-law. These researchers believe they have found her mummy in the Valley of the Kings, and have disturbed the tomb in order to learn more about her life. According to records "little is known about the 'Great Royal ife' of the renegade pharaoh Akhenaton, who ruled from 1353-1336 B.C. In…… [Read More]
espect on the Lifespan of People of All Ages
espect in relation to lifespan
Historically, the life span or longevity of the human being has been the focus of the studies of anthropologists. However, in more contemporary times the field of psychology has realized the inherent impact that psychological factors have upon the lifespan of the individual. Furthermore it has been realized that various factors impact the human lifespan. Those factors are stated to be psychological, physical, mental and emotional in nature.
The objective of this work in writing is to research and relate findings in relation to precisely what determinants exist in deciding the human lifespan and most specifically relating to the element of "respect" and the resulting affect of the presence or of the lack of the presence of respect in the life of the individual. Furthermore the full range of the individual age possibility from young to…… [Read More]
Respect and the Thought Police'": Illustrating Socrates' "Gadfly Analogy" from Plato's Apology
ebster's New American Dictionary defines "gadfly" as "a person who annoys, esp. By persistent criticism" (p. 213). By that definition, Socrates' critics certainly would have considered him one. (It is easier to decide someone is a mere "gadfly," rather than an astute social critic, or a rare perceiver of truth should one feel offended by the "gadfly." ) For example, individuals or groups who feel their own interests, power, authority, etc., may be threatened by what someone like Socrates (or in today's world, journalist Edward Fiske or novelist Salman Rushdie) says are often eager to apply the label "gadfly" (or worse) in order to trivialize the person's words, and encouraging others to do likewise. In that respect, journalist Fiske, of Paul Fussell's Class, and novelist Salman Rushdie (who consistently reminds others that his seemingly esoteric and freakish problem…… [Read More]
S. In connection with financial fraud and corporate misconduct, not to mention political positions expressed by members of the U.S. Congress.
Almost without exceptions, the largest and most destructive examples of contemporary financial fraud and corporate malfeasance have been perpetrated by individuals with high levels of education, professional expertise, and previous (legitimate) accomplishments. Similarly, some of the most important political disputes ongoing in connection with major governmental policy disputes go a long way toward undermine any suggestion that certain members of the U.S. House of epresentatives and the U.S. Senate deserve respect. Collectively, all of those examples illustrate that advanced education, professional expertise, and past achievements are insufficient to justify respect without another crucial component: integrity (Liker, 2003; Maxwell, 2007).

The company also purchases sugar cane from Central America. The same high-quality sugar that Coca-Cola procures at low cost to give its products their characteristic sweetness is known to be the product of child labour in El Salvador
. Other examples of ethical violations include incidents in connection with the efforts of union leaders in Colombia fighting for the rights of labourers at Coca-Cola's main Latin American bottler. Reportedly, Coca-Cola hired mercenaries who actually murdered those union leaders. Likewise, other union activists were fired for attending union meetings and some of their family members were kidnapped and tortured in 2005. In Turkey, fourteen Coca-Cola truck drivers and their families were tortured and beaten while protesting the layoff of 1,000 workers from a local Coca-Cola bottling plant. In Mexico in 2000, a senior bottling manager was sacked and sued for being gay.
Unfortunately, the record establishes that Coca-Cola is directly responsible…… [Read More]
While feminists often militate for environmental conservation, one particular stance they take in this direction is that of addressing the issue of gender differences in environmental issues. The feminist approach to environmentalism promotes a superior role of women in the protection of the environment by presenting both females and the environment as reproductive forces of nature. Additionally, they argue that women are nurturers by nature and they are as such better skilled to protect the environment (ocheleau, 1996).
Feminist environmentalism assesses the differences not only between natural stances of genders, but also between the access to resources, the control over the resources, the knowledge possessed and available, as well as the relationships developed at the level of national and local governments, as well as within the international community (Cornwall, Harrison and Whitehead, 2008).
The feminist environmental movement is as such based on the following interests:
"How gender, class and race…… [Read More]
This is the view that gives basis to the Routine Activity Theory, in which the rational choice theory gives young criminal actors a way of justifying criminal behaviors. The rational choice theory works from the idea that for many juvenile offenders, illegal behaviors are not undertaken in idle but instead are the result of a carefully constructed weighing of the possible gains and consequences. The model in question "is based on the idea that offenders do indeed think and make choices. From this perspective, property offences are the result of rational decision-making reached by men and women who confront a problem faced by many others -- a need or a desire for money." (Desroches, 1)
In many cases, rational choice theory is a great window into the broad sociological conditions and the individual motivations that cause people not just to engage in criminal behavior but to feel that this is…… [Read More]
espect and Dignity Linked to Self-espect
espect for others is not based on any sense of inferiority in one's self, instead it is based on something entirely opposite i.e. An ability to respect one's self and to see ourselves just as worthy of love and respect as anyone else. When a person extends respect to another human being, he demonstrates humility, acceptance and also proves that respect for others is a reflection of the kind of respect a person has in himself. This is not just hogwash but is a documented truth that has been reiterated by thinkers often. For example Powers and Faden (2008) write, "espect for others is closely linked to self-respect. A capacity for self-respect involves an individual's capacity to see oneself as the moral equal of others and as an independent source of moral claims based on one's own dignity and worth. "(p. 22)

The other is that the author is using the same references as before, shoehorning them into the paper without regard for appropriateness. Utilizing more sources would be preferred. Also, there are times when old sources are used for information about online marketing. A paper from 2000 is of questionable relevance given the phenomenal technological advancements in the e-Business sphere over the past nine years.
Overall, the paper lacks cohesion. Sources and concepts have been plucked at random and pasted together. Yet, the facts presented do not support each other. There is no central thesis towards which these random tidbits work. 3M is a huge company - the paper may have been improved by focusing on just one of 3M's businesses. As it is, the reader is left with little sense of what 3M's e-Business strategy is, how it works, or whether it has been successful.… [Read More]
The Tampa Bay Times recently reported on the standoff between school administrators, who claim the offending passages have been taken out of context, and protestors who have cried foul over what they perceive to be ideological indoctrination, stating that "the concerns raise the specter of textbook wars in other states, especially Texas, where ideological camps have long locked horns over everything from the validity of evolution to how much the Founding Fathers were guided by Christianity" (Matus & Solochek, 2011).
The inclusion of biased statements within textbooks which are widely regarded by students as unimpeachable records of factual statement is startling to say the least. There are several serious ramifications that this disturbing trend may have on the nation's educational efficacy, with entire generations of students learning from wildly disparate perspectives depending on the vagaries of publishing arrangements, administrative agendas, and other corruptive forces. esearch on the construction of textbook…… [Read More]
espect in Personal and Professional Consideration
espect is defined by one author as "a concept used to connote dignity, reverence, and regard" (Milton, 2005). This concept is not confined by what an individual does toward others, but also how they treat themselves and other treat them (Nursing World, 2010). The ethics involved speak mainly to the first part, how nurses treat patients, but there is also much ethics literature that suggests that people will give respect if they receive it and feel it for themselves. This short paper discusses how nurses view respect in its different forms and how these different forms compare and contrast.
The fact that respect for other stems from respect for self is not just a platitude that is thrown around to ensure that nurses remain mentally healthy; it is a statement with regard to proper ethics within the nursing community. It…… [Read More]
Therefore, total emissions are reduced over time, which is seen in the EU. A period of emissions was to be reduced by 5% with 199- levels while the next set of years were to reduce emissions by 20%. As a result, the cap-and-trade system offers the policymakers and those concerned with the environment a definite emissions target.
A cap-and-trade strategy makes sure that the short-run resources of abatement are assumed first since firms have the incentive and motivation to reduce their emissions levels when they can accomplish this at a price lower than the market. The market price rewards firms should they make the reductions but are punished if they don't. The cap is to ensure environmental sanctity and the trade advocates minimum cost. Therefore, this method minimizes waste, and it is individual firms that offer a cheap source of abatement to reduce gas emissions. Cap-and-trade method also maintains liberty…… [Read More]
His overactive super-ego demands rigid acceptance of social conformity, including a set of standards that are applicable to him being a role model to others. He might ask himself the question, " that if he, as a conservative role model, cannot control his physical urges what then would a less "public" and conservative individual do if he or she were exposed to such materials? His response with regard to reaction formation might tell him that despite ample scientific evidence that arousal from erotic imagery is normal and even healthy and that the majority of people who view such material still remain within the confines of acceptable adult morality, that the average lesser individual might react to erotic material by committing adultery, raping or acting sexually aggressive toward someone, turn deviant (i.e. gay), or the worst case scenario inappropriately touch a child. All of these fears are aspects of reaction formation,…… [Read More]
Market Efficient espect Set Information Impossible Makes Abnormal Profits
In his work, Fama argued that given the massive use of resources by the brokerage firm to conduct studies on trends in the industry, the effects of changes in interest rates on corporate balance sheets and expectations of managers and/or political analysts of the companies should be able to systematically beat a generic portfolio with the same risk characteristics.
Since, according to Fama, professional in every situation, the analyst has a fifty percent chance of beating the market; although its specific capabilities did not exist he would beat a lot of the market. The analyst did "help" the market to be efficient if all the investors, in fact, would hold portfolios composed of stock indices, would open up significant opportunities for professional traders to take advantage of the situation. But the movement of traders to that "new market" would…… [Read More]
During the First World War, the European powers (particularly in Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire) succeeded in glorifying nationalism and manipulating young minds toward self-sacrifice for nationalistic ideals. A short two decades later Germany again demonstrated even more convincingly how powerful a role educators play in shaping young minds. The Nazi phenomenon that absorbed German society in the decade preceding the outbreak of World War Two provides an even more dramatic and horrible illustration of both the power of educators and the reason that this power comes with a profound ethical responsibility (Einstein, 1954; Einstein in ooney, 2006; ussell, 1961).
The sheer power of the role of teachers in influencing young minds gives rise to a set of tremendous ethical responsibilities. Among the most important is respect for the boundaries between personal beliefs of the teacher and the autonomous rights of parents to determine what ideas they wish…… [Read More]
The modern nurse must then be willing to move beyond a simple catch-all of medical jargon and bureaucracy and become someone who is both supportive and critical of the system. This may seem dichotomous, but in reality is not. The system is designed with beneficence in mind -- to help the patient at all costs. It is thus up to the nurse advocate to ensure that that actually happens (Sheldon, 2009).
Undertake assessments which are sensitive to the needs of the patient- Assessment is one of the key factors in management of clinical medicine. The nurse is often at the forefront of that process simply due to the logistical nature of the situation -- taking vitals, preparing the patient for blood work, etc. However, it is in two particular areas that the nurse can be most effective when assessing the actual needs of the patient; culturally and when questions are…… [Read More]
viewer ship of Hindi Films with respect to the Non-Asian population in the UK
The Hindi film industry or the 'Bollywood' as it has been referred to have made a significant mark not only in the Indian society, but has had far reaching influence among Indians residing abroad. We shall concentrate on the Hindi films in the UK with respect to the resident Indian population. The United Kingdom alone accounts for about a sizeable Indian population. It is only natural that Bollywood movies find a thriving and a huge revenue generating market in there. Hindi films have made a long standing presence in the British cinema houses for close to about thirty years now. This in itself is a notable achievement. It not only indicates the huge 'desi' presence in the United Kingdom, but also highlights the huge market and enthusiasm for films 'manufactured in bollywood.'
In addition to the…… [Read More]
Jefferson expressed his sympathy for the tragic history of Native American peoples after the arrival of the Europeans, showing his empathy towards a minority.
And so to remember the legacy, both the tragic and glorious aspects which come with it, the burial mound should be looked at with more significance than a practical resting place. It represents all which the Native American people have gone through. They are a constant reminder of how great these cultures once were, and how they were so negatively affected by the arrival of European settlers. Rather than looking at these "barrows" as a sign of the Native American's inferiority, Jefferson believed that they should be looked upon with respect as we expect our monuments to be viewed. They are the most common memorial to a culture and way of life that was nearly extinguished.… [Read More]
Cog Beh Therapy
With respect to the businessman who comes to see the therapist about the problems in his marriage, there are two issues immediately apparent from the brief case history. The first is the man's unwillingness to accept any responsibility for the success of the relationship. He is immediately defensive, blaming his wife for all their problems. He claims that she is hypercritical and that she is "probably" suffering from PMS. Without getting the wife's side of the story, it is impossible to know the extent of her complaints against her husband, the degree to which she feels they need help, and the amount of effort she is willing to expend -- and has already expended -- to put the marriage back on track, if that is in fact what she wants. It is unlikely she has had a formal diagnosis of PMS. Used in this context, "PMS" is…… [Read More]
With respect to the ethics audit, the company shouldn't change anything other than to institute it. Where we left off, the ethics audit was external, and this is critical, because many of the current ethical issues arise because of the relationships within the company and the way that the different interests within the company are represented in the current ethics program. So the ethics audit has to be external.
The other issue with the ethics audit is that too many people within the company did not seem to want the external audit to take place. This is a major problem, so the delays in the timing of the external audit should be eliminated. The external audit needs to take place as soon as possible, which is the major change that should occur. Let the external auditors determine how and what to investigate -- their ability to ask questions that…… [Read More]
The suppliers also threatened to quit spending the materials, subassemblies and supplies critical for making the next generation of products for our company. The new product development efforts underway had to stop for weeks until this systems was straightened out.
Externally to the company suppliers were beginning to talk with the press, wondering out loud in the media if our company was still solvent. Soon, investors were calling our senior management asking if the company was having financial trouble. The accounting and financial organizational systems were nearly responsible for the company being audited when the problem didn't get fixed fast enough. The external impacts of these failed and faulty organizational systems were amplified due to stakeholder's concerns for the company's and their own financial security.
Accounting and financial organizational systems are among the most powerful in any company as they literally propel them to their goals (Busco, Scapens, 2011). Like…… [Read More]
A nutrition who views evaluating a person's nutritional health the way a builder would build a bridge - doing one's job and then leaving for the next client - is unlikely to have any real impact on a person's health.
Because people are such complex individuals, nutritionists must understand people well. For a person to follow a nutritionist's advice, he or she must be able to make a compelling case for the dietary changes recommended. The nutritionist must also be personable and able to talk to others in a way that is supportive. It will be an ongoing process for most people to take dietary advice and translate it into changes in eating behavior. So, in addition to a solid background in nutrition, a nutritionist must be an excellent communicator who is willing to work with a person over time. This will support the kinds of permanent dietary changes that…… [Read More]
Saudi Women's Role in Respect of Raising Family Within the Male-Dominated Culture

gender roles in the workplace pre-exist much of what we think defines what work really is; not only do they pre-exist the modern working world of offices and factories, but they also seems older than more basic things, like writing and currency. From the world of the Tasaday tribe in the Philippines to that of such fields as genetic engineering and astrophysics, men and women are compelled to function within the workforce in different ways. In the United States, women dominate fields such as nursing, teaching, and clerical positions, while fields like engineering, programming and accounting are thought to be the domain of men. Some positions, such as those of flight attendants and nurses, are considered so intrinsically "female" that many men refuse to enter these fields for fear that others will question their sexual preference. Other more coveted positions, such as that of the CEO of a large company,…… [Read More]
social issue that I want to discuss is that of illegal immigration, particularly where it pertains to families. Undocumented migrants face numerous social and legal challenges in America, but first and foremost they are human beings, and they are only here to seek a better life. Yet, the conditions under which they come are often trying. Many are virtual slaves, others struggle with the lack of access to public services, housing, and employment. In many instances there are children involved. There is also an element of social advocacy with respect to this issue --one need not look any further than protests in the past year or two in border states that targeted undocumented children to see how vulnerable this population is. Politically, the issue of undocumented immigrants might be highly-charged, but for the field of social work it is a human issue. These are people, after all, and the challenges…… [Read More]
He should never had traded the stock if he was not prepared to accept the risk, or did not personally have belief in the stock's prospects. It is irresponsible to trade stock based on the recommendations of television analysts.
In a moral sense, Rick Stedman, if he was indeed committing a pump-and-dump, knew that some viewers may suffer adverse consequences. However, the limits of his moral responsibility are with his responsibility to the network. He is not morally responsible for the actions of any individual viewer. Likewise, the network is in the news and commentary business. That viewers may trade based on things that they hear or see on the network is a given. The network's oversight with respect to controls on its analysts does not amount to a moral responsibility.

risks that BP faces is with respect to ethics. The company's pursuit of profits over safety on the Deepwater Horizon is perhaps the most obvious example of this risk. Ethically, safety would have been the more important concern, but BP pushed profit as a primary motive despite what it would do to worker safety. The end result, of course, cost the company over $40 billion as the result of the damage that was caused by the accident that occurred as a result of that ethical lapse (earden, 2010).
Ethics continue to be a risk at BP because the unethical practices that led to Deepwater Horizon.

Social and Cultural Diversity
When we recognize social and cultural diversity, we respect the fact that our world is made up of many different peoples from many different places. They come dissimilar backgrounds, cultures, religious and political beliefs, ideas about race and ethnicity, ideas about sex and sexuality. In order for our society to exist multiculturally it is essential that we respect one another's culture and we do that by recognize the reality of our own cultural diversity.
Definition of Cultural Diversity
Cultural diversity can be defined as a variety of cultural/ethnic groups within a community or nation. It can also be defined as the respect that a single society shows to each of its various cultures within that society. Thus, if a society is said to be culturally diverse it is implied that it is cognizant of and respectful towards all of its ethnicities and cultures within its community,…… [Read More]
The ethics of research conducted on human subjects has been debated for almost a century. Studies like the Tuskegee syphilis experiment and other gross violations of ethical principles have called attention to the importance of rigorous standards in the social sciences. Education is not always considered a social science, and yet it is—and one with some of the most significant implications for humanity. As Lopez-Alvarado (2017) points out, education is about empowering individuals and enriching society, not just about teaching specific tasks and processes. Educational research therefore has many meaningful effects and should be taken just as seriously as research in any other applied science. While it is understandable researchers become frustrated with bureaucracy, red tape, and daunting regulations that restrict their freedom in research, those rules are in place for good reason. Educational research can be scrutinized in the most streamlined way possible, while still protecting the most fundamental…… [Read More]
There are several issues with respect to the Kennecott Eagle Mine proposal. The first is the rights of the Ojibway people of the area. These rights have been granted to the people in law -- the Native Americans Freedom of eligion Act of 1979, and in a treaty made between the Ojibway and the federal government in the 1840s. So there is a legal issue at play, as well as a moral issue. There is the appearance that the state's elected officials are ignoring the native claims because they are "in bed" with in the mining company, which raises the specter of corruption.
A second issue with the Kennecott Eagle Mine, there is a key environmental issue. The land has been very useful and productive land with animals and plants. Thus, environmentalists, anglers and hunters alike are in opposition to the mine. The type of mining as well is…… [Read More]
(Drug Creation Process: Learn and Confirm, a new Paradigm for Clinical Development at Wyeth)
Pharmaceuticals - a knowledge driven industry:
Pharmaceuticals happen to be one of the most extremely 'Knowledge Driven' industries that is always in a state of change. Human, animal, and environmental health remains the topmost interest of the society. Diversities in life form and infections render grave challenges to the formulation of particular and targeted solutions. Drug discovery is an elaborate process needing almost a decade at a cost of 300 million U.S. dollars to get a new drug to the market. Hence the long waiting period in between 'learning', knowledge generation' and its changeover to 'value added knowledge' requires the building of Proprietary Knowledge' that is of immense value in setting up and maintaining a worldwide creative gesture. One of our major competitors Merck and Co holds expertise in medicinal preparations & chemistry of N-Heterocyclics liquid…… [Read More]
Human behavior with respect to communal property is a critical issue of our time. The individual profit-maximizing activities of each individual all contribute to the erosion of critical common resources. There are a number of perspectives that help to explain why this occurs.
The tragedy of the commons explains this phenomenon. Hardin (1968) notes that individuals seek to maximize their outcomes -- this could be wealth or it could be utility. In either case, such behavior is strictly oriented to one's own personal well-being. The concept of perfect rationality is applied only in a narcissistic context. This is true even in collectivist societies, because such societies seldom view the human race as the collective unit. Thus, nobody makes their decisions with the good of the entire species in mind. The tragedy is that the cost of things is not reflected in our decision-making. In economics, the concept is…… [Read More]
Teacher & Gender
It is no secret that female employees have been paid less than male employees over the years, and the teaching profession is no different in that regard. It wasn't until 1897 that teachers began to organize and when they did join the Chicago Teachers Federation they found out that the reason their pay was so low was because corporations were not paying taxes -- which meant cities did not have enough resources to pay female teachers what they should be paid. Meantime, it wasn't just female teachers that were -- and in many cases still are -- given the short end of the stick. It was also female students who were not treated with respect. And as this assignment points out, some older teachers still don't get it when it comes to today's female student, who doesn't want to be categorized and kept out of careers just…… [Read More]
Upper Big Branch Mining Disaster
Industrial Calamities Can Be Avoided if Companies espected the Law
Abiding by federal or state industrial laws is necessary since genuine minded legislators have processed the laws and not the profit-minded shark operating as a company executive. Laws provide a framework at which companies should follow. In most cases, laws specify the necessity of appreciating human life. Furthermore, laws provide an equal balancing of social expectations and company objectives. However, some companies have broken the laws. From their illegal actions, different calamities have been experienced in an industrial situation. The commencing research will highlight an example of this company, Massey Energy and its 2010 incidence that led to the perishing of 29 industrial workers. The research will prove that the self-regulation is not ethical as compared to industrial laws set by the government.
What Massey Energy could have done to avoid this tragedy?

Computer/Software and the Use of Computer Technology in Investigations
The key advantage of computer forensics is that it can look for and assess loads of data in a swift and efficient manner. Computers are able to search for keywords from hard drives, in various languages. This proves valuable, as cybercriminals are easily able to cross national boundaries over the World Wide Web (Forensic Science, 2009). Computer forensics may be utilized in cases of corporate frauds, thefts, disputes over intellectual property, asset recovery and contract breaches (Forensic Science, 2009).
Important information, which cybercriminals have deleted or which is lost may be recovered and employed as significant court evidence. Professionals in the legal domain can furnish evidences in courts, which were earlier impossible. The field of computer forensics (i.e., electronic evidence) is fairly new; typically, criminal issues are handled through the use of physical evidence. Fortunately, the tool has proven advantageous in…… [Read More]
Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants
The Kimpton Hotel chain features 65 hotels, and the company has 82 restaurants in 33 cities. Headquartered in San Francisco and known for their quality and uniqueness, these boutique hotels and restaurants are also known as excellent places to work and have taken positively open-minded positions when it comes to hiring minorities, women, and members of the LBGT community as well. Management for these hotels and restaurants is very progressive when it comes to guests and to employees, and this paper reviews and critiques the Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants in terms of the quality of their management services.

Patients may also prioritize different interests over their physicians. A general practitioner, like the pediatrician of the above-cited teen, might believe that the risks of surgery are too great and that the teen's body type is not extreme enough to justify plastic surgery or that it is best to wait until the teen is fully developed. From the girl's perspective, the fact that she is teased by her peers and is afraid to change during gym class is an argument in favor of the surgery which surmounts any possible objections. Teens may have difficulty appreciating the future consequences of their actions although the surgery is certainly performed upon consenting adults and is not an 'extreme' procedure. Also, the teen might complain of back pain which could be potentially alleviated by the surgery.
A plastic surgeon may have a different perspective of beneficence than a general practitioner as well, believing that…… [Read More]
The high divorce rates in First World nations have encouraged researchers, family counselors, and religious advocates to investigate the core foundations for the creation of a successful marriage. Starting in the 1960s, evolving social context ultimately shifted the rationale in why individuals choose to marry, and over time, divorce has come to be viewed as the preferred alternative to an unhappy marriage. One main fundamental principle to achieve marital success is to recognize women desire love, while men simultaneously need respect to feel fulfilled within the relationship. Emotional intelligence within a relationship and acknowledging various marital myths also contribute to the fundamental elements of marital success. Dissociating from marital myths and misconceptions is an essential part to understanding the true foundations for a happy and successful marriage. Appreciating and understanding how attachment styles affect marital relationships is also essential. These beliefs and attachment styles contribute to the marital…… [Read More]
Josquin des Prez (Josquin Lebloitte dit Desprez) (1455-1521) was a Franco-Flemish composer of the Renaissance. He is also known as Josquin Desprez. He is also known as Josquin Desprez, or in Latin, Josquinus Pratensis or Josquinus Pratensis.
Widely considered to be one of the most famous composers of his time, ranking as genius between Guillaume Dufay and Palestrina, he is renowned for having mastered the high Renaissance style of polyphonic vocal music that was popular during his time.
The following essay describes the 6 core values of Excellence, Community, Respect, Personal Development, Responsible tewardship, and Integrity, and using specific examples demonstrates how Josquin des Prez does or does not meet these categories.
As it sounds, excellence is the value of maintaining a high degree of perfection in one's contribution. The artist (or individual) uses his talent to the maximum, he sharpens it and works on it until it becomes…… [Read More]
esolving Organizational Culture Issues
Situational Overview and Background of the Issues
The organisation consists of 43 employees managed by a management team of 3 males in their middle 60s: a Director, General Manager, and National Sales Manager. The average age of the employees is 30, and only 3 of the employees are female. The 3 managers all adhere to very outdated authoritarian management styles and communication patterns, routinely resorting to verbal abuse and screaming. The managers maintain very high expectations; meanwhile, they pay their employees less than is standard within their industry. Female employees are paid even less for doing the same jobs as their male counterparts and they receive less respect and deference than male colleagues in identical positions. The management team spends a large percentage of company profits, partly because they adamantly refuse to adopt newer technologies that have already become standard in contemporary business organisations as well…… [Read More]
This post brings up the important part of teaching by example. There is no better way to communicate the awesomeness of Christianity than by good Christian living. The example of Christ should be visible in every Christian's action -- or else he is not worthy of being called a Christian. This thought should lead us to realize that we are hypocrites if we attempt to convert others and yet do not strive to convert ourselves. Therefore our first goal should be to truly convert our own natures to Christ's. This conversion in ourselves will speak more loudly and audibly than any words one could think. Indeed, Christ could convert with a look (as he does with St. Peter, after Peter betrays him and hears the cock crow thrice). We too should be able to convert in just such a way -- through meekness and mildness.
Another interesting point…… [Read More]
Suggested Approach for Reconciliation and Resolution
The suggested approach to reconciliation and resolution would, as in the cases of Donnie and Mika also rely primarily on the process of educating the individuals involved to better understand certain information that they would need to understand to achieve their common objective. More specifically, Tyrrell should attempt to develop a method of helping the Bishops understand the positive elements of modern communications and information media and to overcome their existing reluctance based on ignorance and fear of something new.

Dilemmas and Most Prominent Dimensions at Issue
The dilemma presented by this situation is that, on one hand, the United States Navy promotes, supports, and encourages all enlisted individuals to respect cultural diversity and individuality of all persons; but on the other hand, the U.S. Navy also maintains an extremely rigid set of formal organizational values and standards that…… [Read More]
The term (c) "The University accepts no liability in negligence for property damage suffered by students on University premises" is reasonable under UCTA 11(1)[footnoteRef:1] because it was a term to hold all parties accountable in cases of damage due to negligence. Each party would be required to exercise reasonable care in performance of the contract[footnoteRef:2]. This does not relieve the university from liability in case of negligence of its own making[footnoteRef:3]. The university would still be held responsible for liability if damaged is caused because of the university's negligence in not doing repairs as needed or in the act of student property being damaged in the course of doing needed repairs. Or, the university would still be held responsible for not adequately ensuring proper security of the premises. [1: Section 11(1) -- the term shall have been a fair and reasonable one to be included having regard to…… [Read More]
HP) is a workable, respected program designed to offer support for those whose needs are not being met. The various settings in which the HP is put in action include people in a mental health setting, criminal justice, substance abuse issues, educational environments, legal aid, welfare and child and youth services. This paper uses the example of an immigrant who has serious problems and who will be provided helping process services and care, as an example of how the system works.
The Helping Process -- How it orks
The professionals that provide helping process-related services to people in need are actually reaching out with both support and a structured plan for that support. According to a book written by Marianne oodside and Tricia McClam, both affiliated with mental health counseling services, the three phases of the helping process are assessment, planning, and implementation. Those helping professionals "…need an extensive repertoire…… [Read More]
Employee theft is noted by Mishra and Prassad (2006) to be a major component of private and public retail shrinkage.There is a consensus that theft in the workplace constitutes a serious offense and is a cause of serious problem (Weber, Kurke & Pentico, 2003).Employees have been noted to steal time, money, merchandise as well as other forms of company property like information in exchange for cash and other forms of favors. Wells (2001) noted that opportunity is the main reason for commissioning fraud. According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, U.S. employees lose between $20-$40 billion annually through employee theft alone. This theft is noted to be responsible for 30% of all business failure (Condon,2003).Bamfield (2004) further indicated that employee theft is commonplace in the business today.

Nature of the organization's mandate
Philosophical perspective, with respect to promoting global health
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the result of the Cold War doctrine related to international assistance. During the Kennedy Administration in the 1960s, the interest for assistance to low income countries and those affected by increased degrees of poverty has determined a need for a concerted action that would alleviate, to a certain extent, the pressures of impoverished national budgets and destroyed economies. In this sense, it was considered that developed countries, and especially the United States as the largest economic power of the Cold War, had the "moral duty" to assist countries in need (Committee on International elations, 2003). Despite this…… [Read More]
I do not feel that the state should be allowed to draft marriage terms that do not adequately protect the liberty and equality of each spouse. I believe that cultures of the world are slowing moving towards a global culture that embraces liberty and equality through globalization and advances of information technologies. In fact, this point seems evident in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 16 of this document states (the United Nations, N.d.):
(1) Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.
(2) Marriage shall be entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses.
(3) the family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection…… [Read More]
Significance of cultural diversity
Theories permit us to determine the world around us coherently and also to act in the world with a reasonable approach. Numerous theories have developed throughout the previous century in western countries that make an effort to clarify how human character evolves, why all of us behave the way we do, what external circumstances encourage us to behave in particular ways, and the way these elements have been connected. A few of these concepts structure their arguments on essential physical as well as social-emotional situations within our very first years of existence; some around the impact involving external influences of our own family members, neighbourhood, as well as culture; a few on the unique learning and also thought procedures; a few on triumphant finalization of precise developmental "activities" at each and every phase throughout lifespan; plus some on the way a healthy-or perhaps unhealthy-sense…… [Read More]
Mudra did not act according to this principle when he ignored the warning signs of Daniel's condition.
The best course of action would therefore have been a focus on beneficence/non-maleficence rather than upon respect for autonomy. Daniel's age is also an important factor. Concomitantly with his condition, Daniel's immaturity and a desire to "prove" his independence to his parents, could have contributed to his death. When treating such young persons, it is perhaps advisable to place emphasis upon non-maleficence rather than respect for autonomy. In terms of these two principles, it would be acceptable for the parents to complain.
In terms of scope, the final principle, justice, is not as applicable to Daniel's case itself as it is to his parents. The parents feel aggrieved by the practitioner's lack of in-depth knowledge and action regarding Daniel's condition. They are seeking justice for themselves, but it is too late for such…… [Read More]

Human esources Policies
Human resources represent the most important resource that companies can use. The value they contribute with to the products and services of the company allows them to create competitive advantage and determines their success. In other words, companies' activity depends on the human resources they recruit, select, train, motivate, and manage. In order for the personnel to perform on high quality standards, it is important to develop and implement proper human resources strategies. These strategies must be based on identifying the type of personnel of each company, their needs, their stimuli, and to develop techniques that are able to motivate them into improving their work.
The policies in different companies regarding their human resources vary in accordance with the size of the…… [Read More]
Fichte separate right from morality and is it a good thing? Should they be separated?
Fichte's Philosophy of ight and Ethics
Why does Fichte separate right from morality and is it a good thing? Should they be separated?
Moral and political anxieties animate Fichte's entire philosophy and his perceptions to these issues that are innovative and at times tied together. His responses to Kant's vital philosophy in 1790 was a retaliation to the Kantian moral perception and its outset of human self-esteem as embedded in freedom and the moral outlook of human beings as normal agents. Fichte's perception on Wissenschaftslehre principle was a far from the conceptions developed in 1974 by the philosophers of Foundations of the entire Wissenschaftslehre. Fichte's major works in the principle of right and morality are extensively covered in these two areas; Fichte's Foundation of Natural ight (Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy) And the…… [Read More]
European Imperialism and Decolonization:

Not Spectacular in Other Respects
European Imperialism and Decolonization:
Spectacular in Some Respects, Not Spectacular in Other Respects
The term "spectacular" is, in some respects, subjective. The collapse of European empires after 1945 was spectacular in some respects but not in others. The British Empire's decolonization after orld ar II can be logically called "spectacular" in its scope; however, it was not "spectacularly" surprising or shocking, for the Empire began decolonization decades before orld ar II. In contrast to the Empire's decolonization, France's decolonization can be logically called "spectacular" in both its scope and turmoil. According to research, these differing experiences of decolonization can be traced to several national and accidental factors.

That being said, it is quite difficult to be honest with oneself, even thought as we stand in front of the mirror, naked and bare, Didion says we remain "blind to our fatal weaknesses." One might think that being too self-critical would damage the ego, but for Didion, it is completely the opposite -- by knowing out flaws, accepting some and working towards the goal of solving others, we become more actualized and powerful. Without this realization, "one eventually discovers the final turn of the screw: one runs away to find oneself, and finds no one at home."
Both Didion and Walker focus on self-respect, self-actualization, and in a very real way, a pseudo-Marxian approach to alienation from society. There are several points in common for the authors: one's own approach to self; seeking and finding self-respect; and taking an active role in our own place in the universe. Conversely,…… [Read More]
However, the sum total of the organization's output extends beyond the realm of the quantifiable. Qualitative measures also exist, and they can impact on the quality of the organization's output as well. It can be argued that even qualitative outputs will eventually impact on quantitative outputs. Ford's loss of reputation as the result of the Pinto scandal, for example, cannot be quantified but the sales and profit decreases that flow from the scandal can be quantified. The implications, however, of the damaged reputation cannot be avoided once the damage has been done. Thus, it is important for managers to control the qualitative output before the impacts appear in quantitative form. It may be impossible to control the impacts once the damage has already occurred.
In this way, the notion of quality as typically defined in production-oriented theories like Six Sigma or TQM, proves inadequate. As Ordonez, et al. (2009) showed,…… [Read More]
( Achterberg 21) The man then proceeds to chop up the rest of his shaman's body, which he then boils in a pot for three years. After three years the body is reassembled by the spirits and covered with flesh. This means that in effect the ordinary man is now, through the process of initiation and dismemberment, resurrected as a shaman who has the capability to communicate with the spiritual world and who can acquire the knowledge to help and heal numerous illnesses. As the research by Achterberg notes, he now has the ability to, "…read inside his head…" (Achterberg 22) In other words, he now has the ability to see in a mystical sense without the use of his ordinary vision. (Achterberg 22) The initiation process also refers to the view that the shaman acts and perceives in a way that is different to ordinary human beings.
