Assignment 4

1. Harriet Homemaker likes to use her barbeque to make dinner for her family. Harriet, however, uses lighter fluid, and wastes a lot of it. She disposes of half-full lighter fluid bottles in her kitchen garbage and the garbage men take them away when she puts her trash out for collection. Harriet’s ex-husband reports her to the EPA for violating provisions of RCRA. What is the likely result?

Even though lighter fluid may not be on one of the EPA’s hazardous waste lists, it has a characteristic of hazardous waste as it is “ignitable.” Under (40 C.F.R 261.21) it is a hazardous waste. However, because household solid waste and/or hazardous waste is a regulatory exemption it is likely that the EPA will not address the report from her husband in regards to violating provisions of the RCRA.
2. You are working as a paralegal for the law office of Daniel Kaffe. Nathan Jessup, a local entrepreneur who is in the business of transporting various flammable liquids, calls to set up an immediate appointment to discuss a potential issue. At the time, Mr. Kaffe is out of town and will not be returning for a couple days. Later that day, Jessup comes in to speak with you about the situation. Jessup tells you that one of his trucks that was transporting 1,000 gallons of highly flammable liquids overturned near a local school. He is not sure what to do and asks you for your advice. Given the urgency of the matter, what should you instruct Jessup to do?

As a paralegal I cannot give Mr. Jessup legal advice, however, as a citizen I would be able to give notice to the EPA of the spill. The first step is containment of the problem to reduce the immediate risk to human health and the environment especially because of the proximity to the school and small children. Under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and…...

... contamination beyond the accident site. People showing symptoms of exposure were hospitalised for the next 15 hours because it could take up to 14 hours for some symptoms to occur (OEHHA, 2001). Once inside, firefighters discovered that the leak originated with the methyl isocyanate vault tank in the insecticide production area of the plant. Once the engineers assessed the tank, they believed that the leak was caused from over pressure caused by water penetration. The tank was repaired within 12 hours. Factory decontamination started on July 9 after OSHA had inspected the area and deemed it was safe for workers to return. Of the 1365 people who were working in the ChemSpec plant at the time of the methyl isocyanate leak, 618 were hospitalized. Unfortunately, 122 of those workers died within five days due to numerous ailments caused by methyl isocyanate exposure. Twelve family members of factory workers were later hospitalized after having been cross-contaminated by workers who managed to leave the area before it was secured. Numerous exposed workers continue to have kidney and liver damage as a long-term effect of the MIC exposure. All workers who were exposed will be at higher risk of suffering from chronic symptoms like cancer or reproductive and developmental disorders (EPA, n.d.). No charges or lawsuits have been filed as of yet, however based on past accidents of this magnitude the financial aftermath should be substantial. References EPA. (n.d.). Methyl......

Which of the following circumstances best indicates that Lee is an employee of Sew and not an independent contractor? a. b. c. d. Lee's work is not supervised by Sew personnel. Lee's tools are owned by Lee. Lee is paid weekly by Sew. Lee's work requires a high degree of technical skill. CPA-01299 Explanation Choice "c" is correct. A clear example of an employee is one who works full time for the employer, uses the employer's tools, is compensated on a time basis, and is subject to supervision of the employer in the details of the work. A clear example of an independent contractor is one who has a calling of his own, who uses his own tools, is hired for a particular job, is paid a given amount for the job, and follows his own discretion. Thus, payment on a weekly basis is an indication that a person is an employee rather than an independent contractor. Choice "a" is incorrect. If Lee's work is not supervised by Sew's personnel, per the above, that would be an indication of independent contractor status. Choice "b" is incorrect. Per the above...

Lady Windemere's Fan

...Dylan Hay Lady Windemere Essay In the play Lady Windemere’s Fan, Lord Darlington and Lady Windemere are both central characters, so the casting of these two roles are key. I would cast a young, pretty girl as Lady Windemere, she must be likeable and easy to empathise with, this is key to the structure and plot of the play. My Lord Darlington would be stereotypically tall and handsome, older than Lady Windemere but young enough to be considered attractive, to add further empathy and feeling to the plight of Lady Windemere. This casting would have to be relatable to make he play more comedic and real. The relationship between these two characters changes throughout the play and it is important that the actors be directed to show this relationship and change accurately. In act 1 be fore we see them together it is apparent that there is something between them. The stage direction [hesitates for a moment] is given before she gives the order to show him up. I would make Lady Windemere exaggerate this hesitation, a look of shock on her face and a splutter or a cough to reiterate the point. This shows the audience that LW has to consider seeing him, as there is some sort of tension between them. Later in act 1 Lord Darlington says “I won’t hear of its raining on your birthday”. I would make the actor perform this over the top with a large shake of his head and put emphasis on the words ‘hear’ and raining’, I would also get him to stand up abruptly. The emphasis shows his...

...As I look up at the bright warm light known as the sun, I think to myself this feels like I’m having déjà vu; like I’ve done this before. I feel the heat of the sun as I start to experience an out of body experience and begin to rise into the air. I rise into the atmosphere where the temperatures begin to cool which causes me to condense into clouds. As the air currents move I begin to collide with others like me who have been condensed into clouds, together we grow until eventually we fall from the upper atmospheric layers as precipitation. I notice that some of us freeze due to the cold temperatures, some of us fall as rain, hail, fog and even sleet. I see the others landing in bodies of water. Some of them fall in the grass and in different areas of the earth. I was lucky I it wasn’t too cold on the way down and I fell as a drop of rain into a crack on a road where I got to roam freely and pass by the others who were frozen, getting drunk by animals or stored for human uses. I’m considered to be runoff until I find my place here. As I flow freely through the cracks in the road I look forward and see a house at the end of the hill I am traveling down. Cracks in the road lead me into the driveway of this house where I make a sharp turn and land in a bed of beautiful plants. At first I didn’t want to be stuck in the plant bed but the plants where nice to me and gave me comfort they told me we need each other and we will take care of each other. They also told me that they...

...Joe Metz Professor James Huskins CMIS 102 6385 February 22nd 2015 Program Description – This program will calculate the area and perimeter of a rectangle with the provided user input. Analysis – First the user needs to provide the values for both the length and the width of the rectangle they want to determine the area and perimeter from. From there calculations need to be made. For this example we will use a rectangle with the length of 3 and a width of 9. The formula for determining the perimeter of a rectangle is P=2(l+w) where l and w stand for length and width and P is perimeter. While the formula for determining the area of a rectangle is A=lw. Where A is area and l and w are length and width. By using the values stated previously we can plug in the numbers for that formula and get 2(3+9). Simplified that's 2x12=24. To determine the area we can plug the numbers in and get A=3x9 or A=27. By writing the formulas into a function and calling that function we can have the program use any variety of input by the user to determine what the area and perimeter of a rectangle is with any values. Test Case - Test Case # | Input | Expected Output | 1 | length(l) = 3, width(w) = 9 | Perimeter (P) =24 Area (A) =27 | 2 | l = 5, w = 10 | P =30 A= 50 | 3 | l = 9, w = 36 | P=90 A= 324 | Pseudocode - //Declare Variables L, W, P, A //Float Variables P, A Write “Please Enter the Length of the Rectangle” Input......

You cannot compensate. The first four assessments (professional products) are directly linked towards the Business Plan Project (BSP) and therefore carried out in the same groups as you work with for BSP. If a professional product is insufficient you may hand in an improved version in the same period after consultation with the lecturer. If it occurs, even after an improved version has been handed in, that still 1 or more professional products are insufficient, you will have 0 EC for Research and you have to resit the whole research module next semester. However, this has no direct consequence for the ECs of the BSP project. Naturally, there is a bigger chance that the BSP project is insufficient as well, since you use the input from Research. Lectures are compulsory, because of the element of group work. Meaning that attendance and active participation to at least 9 out of 12 lecture weeks is required. Not meeting this criteria means no credits for the research module. 3. Handing in various professional products The Research Proposal, desk research...

The exam will take the form of a legal memo, in which you brief me on the legal standing of our client, Joe Doe. I have provided some links to forms of legal memos that you might use, and there are other examples online. http://www.law.cuny.edu/legal-writing/students/memorandum/memorandum-3.html http://www.lawandborder.com/Academic/LW/LW--Samples/SampleMemoSTCL.pdf You will need to research the position of the individual whom you are representing. What are the positions regarding each party in this case – that is, The Corporation, John Smith and Joe Doe? To what extent do these individuals’ values reflect their positions toward the issue, toward the plaintiff, toward the tribe and toward the state? Would it make any difference whether this took place in a PL 280 or non-280 state? When you have determined the answers to these questions, begin your legal research and prepare to argue your case in court. You will need to analyze pertinent law as we have done in class, looking for facts, issues and analyses, just as the online memo templates suggest. When you mention a particular case, you must cite it using the following hint: Montana v. United States, 450 U.S. 544 (1981), 546. Remember, your boss is very lazy and hates research and has...

Advise Laurence on the Tax Consequences of the Above Facts Referring to Appropriate Case Law and Legislation.

...The issue is whether Laurence Wong (LW) is a resident of Australia for tax purposes from the period 1st of July 2009 until the 30th of June 2012, given that LW has been living and working abroad in Singapore from July 2009. Residence is an important consideration for this case as under s6-5(2) of the ITTA1997 if LW is a resident his income from all sources will be taxable in Australia whereas if he is a foreign resident his assessable income would only include income from Australian sources, e.g. his Australian listed share dividends and his rent from the rental of his family home. The complicated facts are that LW signed a 3-month contract on the 1st July and then went on to sign a 3-year contract on the 5th of October 2009. In May 2012, LW returned to Australia due to family illness. Rules A person is a resident if he/she resides in Australia under Section 6(1)(a) of ITAA1936 and includes a person i) Whose domicile is in Australia, unless the Commissioner is satisfied that the person’s permanent place of abode is outside Australia. ii) Who has actually been in Australia, continuously or intermittently, during more than one half of the year of income. iii) Who is: a) A member of the superannuation scheme established by deed under the superannuation act 1990; or b) An eligible employee for the purposes of the Superannuation Act 1976; or c) The spouse, or a child under 16, of a person covered by sub-subparagraph (A) or (B...
