Term

Discrimination

Institutional discrimination

Political correctness

Definition

the denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals and groups because of prejudice or for other arbitrary reasons

a denial of opportunities and equal rights to individuals or groups, resulting from the normal operations of a society

avoidance of expressions or actions that can be perceived to exclude or marginalize or insult people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against

Part II

Write a 150- to 250-word response to each of the following questions:



How is discrimination different from prejudice and stereotyping?

Discrimination is not being fair to someone. Denying those who are completely capable, equipped or qualified to do something. This is a huge problem.



What are the causes of discrimination?

Discrimination can be caused from a number of different things. It can stem from being raised in a family that discriminates against certain individuals or from bad experiences.
Sometimes when certain people have a bad experience with a person of different race, they tend to take it out on everyone of that race. They do not take into consideration that not all people of that race will act the same. Religion is another factor that causes discrimination.
If someone has different views than you, you may feel like you cannot converse with them because of that. It can also be caused my gender, disabilities, appearance and age, just to name a few. We were all made differently and if everyone could just accept that we would not have as many problems. Having more power or money can also cause discrimination as well. People who have it sometimes look down on those who do not.

...Appendix C Club IT, Part 1 Club IT is a downtown music venue managed and owned by Ruben Keys and Lisa Tejada. They both graduated with degrees in Business Administration in 2005 and decided to follow their dream of opening a nightclub. During college, they supported themselves by working as musicians; Lisa played jazz violin and Ruben played drums. They learned a lot about nightclub operations from their music experiences, in addition to business principles learned from their studies. Lisa and Ruben have just completed extensive remodeling of the interior of Club IT and are pleased with the results. The club’s tall ceilings and high-energy lighting creates an ambience of fun and liveliness. They hire live bands on Fridays and Saturdays and have a live DJ Tuesdays through Thursdays; the club is closed on Sundays. The DJ uses a collection of MP3 playlists, including hip-hop, techno, and electronic with some Top 40s thrown in. Lisa and Ruben run the office and maintain all financial and business-related records. They realize that while the resources they spent on remodeling are paying off well, their information management is struggling.

The consulting team has identified the following threats and accompanying risk levels for this particular store: 1. Fire (medium) 2. Internal theft (high) 3. Shoplifting (medium) 4. Burglary (high) 5. Bomb (low) The retail chain has decided to respond to these threats in the following manner: For threat #1, management has decided to take no further precautions because the store is currently up to code and the insurance policy the company carries fully covers it in the event of fire. For threat #2, management has decided to implement background checks for all new applicants and all employees must now have their bags and backpacks checked by security before exiting the store. For threat #3, management has decided to add no additional security measures. Losses due to shoplifting are expected and have been included in the store’s budget. For threat #4, management has installed a comprehensive alarm and surveillance system in all stores, with around-the-clock security monitoring. Now, break-ins at this store cannot occur without detection. For threat #5, management intends to institute no countermeasures. With several other branches throughout the region, the company overall would suffer only minimal losses even......

...Appendix C Polynomials Retail companies must keep close track of their operations to maintain profitability. Often, the sales data of each individual product is analyzed separately, which can be used to help set pricing and other sales strategies. Application Practice Answer the following questions. Use Equation Editor to write mathematical expressions and equations. First, save this file to your hard drive by selecting Save As from the File menu. Click the white space below each question to maintain proper formatting. 1. In this problem, we analyze the profit found for sales of decorative tiles. A demand equation (sometimes called a demand curve) shows how much money people would pay for a product depending on how much of that product is available on the open market. Often, the demand equation is found empirically (through experiment, or market research). a. Suppose a market research company finds that at a price of p = $20, they would sell x = 42 tiles each month. If they lower the price to p = $10, then more people would purchase the tile, and they can expect to sell x = 52 tiles in a month’s time. Find the equation of the line for the demand equation. Write your answer in the form p = mx + b. Hint: Write an equation using two points in the form (x,p). P=mx+b $20= m (42) + b; $10= m (52) + b X = quantity P=price sold 42 20 52 10 M= M= M= M=-1 Substitute -1 for the variable M. $20= -1 (42) + b; $10= -1 (52) + b $20= -42 + b;...
