...-4-50 paperLack of exercise is a key contributor to disease and death among many people in the United States, regardless of age. It is a well-known fact that exercise results in a healthier lifestyle. Along with tobacco use and poor nutrition, lack of exercise is one of the main issues that people have which leads to high blood pressure, obesity, and other serious health problems. According to a study by UCSD School of Medicine and SDSU researchers, lack of physical activity is the main contributor to obesity in children from age 11 to 15 (10 News, 2004). That study showed that 45 percent of 878 children were either at risk for becoming overweight or were already classified as overweight by the body mass index of the age group. The lack of exercise can also be a result of more time in front of the television instead of playing outside. Obesity is now considered an epidemic in the United States. The rates have risen 60 percent in the last decade. Obesity not only constricts your mobility and decreases your energy it also increases your risk for type 2 diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, sleep apnea and cancer. A study published in the 2005, “Archives of Internal Medicine” by the Washington Post reveal that regular exercise can increase your life span. Researchers found that the people who did moderate exercise five days a week lived a half a year longer, and people who did intense exercise five times a week lived 3.7 years longer. This selected behavior is difficult......

3 Legal Form of Business

...There are three legal forms of business: Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, and Corporation. The inventor scenario sounds like the business would start as a Sole Proprietorship since there are limited finances and the inventor’s net worth is low. However, with the new technology being introduced this business could quickly grow and eventually turn into a Partnership or possibly Corporation. A Sole Proprietorship is the easiest business to start with little overhead cost. All decisions are made by the proprietor, so no worries with disagreements since the proprietor is the boss and getting started doe not cost a lot. The downfall to being a Sole Proprietor is you are an extension of your business so if things start to fall apart your personal assets can be seized. The proprietor has to make sure they have taken all the necessary steps in education and training to make sure the business doesn’t look weak and not well managed. A Partnership is a great way to start a business with a friend or family member and luckily there is no set limit on the amount of partners one business can have so a whole class could start an amazing business. The important thing to remember about a partnership is that everyone, no matter the number is equally responsible for the debt created to run the business. Very different from the Sole Proprietorship where its one for all and the Partnership is all for one. The disadvantages of a Partnership include possibly not being able to mutually agree,...

Legal 500 Assignment 3

...Assignment 3: Legal and Ethical Considerations in Marketing, Product Safety, and Intellectual Property Major Dr. Lynn MacBeth Law and Ethics in the Business Environment September 8, 2013 Ethical issues related to marketing and advertising, intellectual property, and regulation of product safety. “Advertising ministers to the spiritual side of trade…it is a great power…part of the greater work of the regeneration and redemption of mankind” (Halbert, 2012). This is a very powerful statement and is completely true as the only way to get ahead in this world as it pertains to business is to be able to advertise and market one’s products efficiently, effectively, and ethically. One ethical issue related to marketing would be the whole idea of false advertising that is present by companies that market and advertise their products. This is an ethical issue because false advertising is misleading to consumers. Consumers trust certain companies and the products they put into the marketplace. An ethical issue that relates to intellectual property would be one that is present amongst many educational institutions all over the world, which would be plagiarism. Plagiarism is the use of someone else’s work as your own without giving proper allocation and praise to the original author. Copyright infringement would be another ethical issue that deals with the stealing of the original authors of works of art, music, and other original masterpieces. There are two......

...Chapter 3: Problems 2 & 4 2. What are some sources of risk in a systems analysis and design project, and how does a project manager cope with risk during the stages of project management? 2. Some sources of risk in a systems analysis and design project are resources, current technology, and rules and regulations. Sometimes, resources are not always available whether it be manpower or materials and software. Current technology can factor in as a risk because things can be outdated and might not be able capable of carrying out the work. Rules and regulations can prohibit certain codes from working because they might not follow the rules of code and regulations can prohibit certain things from happening during the entire process. A project manager copes with the risk during the stages of project management by acknowledging and understanding the risks that can be involved in the project. 4. Suppose that you have been contracted by a jewelry store to manage a project to create a new inventory tracking system. Describe your initial approach to the project. What should your first activity be? What information would you need? To whom might you need to speak? 4. My initial approach to the project would be to talk to the store managers and/or lead management to find out what they expect from the new inventory system whether it is ease of use, better tracking, or even better functionality. My first activity would be to look at the program and see what features can...

Case 3-4

...Case 3-4 Marketing to the Bottom of the Pyramid Central Issues The concept of the Bottom of the Pyramid (BOP) market was originally developed by C.K. Prahalad in “The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid” to highlight a large potential market made up of a large segment of the world’s population that has, until recently, been an ignored market segment among multinational companies. In an age of increasing global competition and near-saturation for some products in more mature markets, this multi-cultural segment, made up of people from all parts of the world that earn less than two dollars a day, can generate significant revenues and be profitable for companies who have developed appropriate strategies for reaching this market segment. Among the issues related to BOPMs are establishing appropriate distribution channels, developing and pricing products that have value for those in these markets, and finding creative ways for financing. In terms of financing, this would include not only that related to the purchase of a product for those with relatively low incomes, but would also include strategies for financing business initiatives on the local level. Perspectives Stakeholder would include the local populations that make up the BOPMs. Cultural considerations must be a key component of product development and advertising. Care must be given that products will not harm those to whom they are marketed. Also, companies are stakeholders in that new strategies......

... Q1:3 the police can give: A warning, Formal police caution, youth aid, reparation to victim and/or other type of punishments. Q2:1 The process of restorative justice necessitates a shift in responsibility for addressing crime. In a restorative justice process, the citizens who have been affected by a crime must take an active role in addressing that crime. Although law professionals may have secondary roles in facilitating the restorative justice process, it is the citizens who must take up the majority of the responsibility in healing the pains caused by crime. Q2:2 The restorative justice is based on the theory of justice. Q2:3 The main goal of a conference is to formulate a plan about how best to deal with the offending. There are three principal components to this process: * ascertaining whether or not the young person admits the offense - conferences only proceed if the young person does so or if the offense has been proved in the Youth Court; * sharing information among all the parties at the conference about the nature of the offense, the effects of the offense on the victims, the reasons for the offending, any prior offending by the young person, and so on; * deciding the outcome or recommendation. The family group conference is a meeting between those entitled to attend, in a relatively informal setting. The room is usually arranged with comfortable chairs in a circle. When all are present, the meeting may open with a prayer or a blessing. Q2:4......

...Critique This essay is poorly written in that it fails to use correct legal terminology. Instead, it uses casual slang that is unacceptable in todays court system. The citations are not formatted correctly nor are they used in an appropriate fashion. They were neither explained nor applied in depth to the case at hand. The citations were also not analyzed nor were the judgments discussed. Essay The plaintiff purchased a baseball bat from the defendant. A baseball bat is designed to hit baseballs at excessive speeds, so an implied warranty would be included in the purchase. However, the baseball bat itself was faulty in it's design and shattered as soon as the plaintiff attempted to use it. Its inherent defect violates the implied warranty of merchantability under the Universal Commercial Code (U.C.C.). We turn to Dudzik v. Klein's All Sports, 158 Misc. 2d 72 (1993) in this case for reference. In Dudzik, the plaintiffs purchased a bat manufactured with a specialized graphite carbon. This bat was being marketed as being an unbreakable bat that could hit the ball farther than a normal bat. The longer distance was not disputed in this case. The first bat bought from the defendant developed internal cracks due to a manufacturer defect. This bat was returned in exchange for another bat of the same make and model in accordance to the return policy posted at the store. The second bat also developed internal cracks and was rendered useless for its' intent and was again brought back to...

Unit 4 Task 3

...Unit 4 Task 3 Disengagement Theory Cumming and Henry (1961) * Withdrawal from social contact with others. * Natural part of ageing * Reduced physical health and loss of social opportunities means they don’t engage in activities Discredited by Zimbardo (1992) * Many people stay active * Socialise with remaining friends, not make new ones * Still involved with family Activity Theory Robert J Havighurst (1961) * Older people stay mentally and socially active to avoid disengagement * Physical activity (eg. Walking, gardening, yoga) * Mental activity (eg. Crosswords, studying courses, puzzles) Bromley (1966) The process of ageing is a process that everybody experience in their life. The process begins from the day you are born but becomes more prominent when you’re older. When you are younger, ageing may enable you to do more things and become more able. However, as you become older, ageing may stop you doing certain things and things like your memory and ability may deteriorate rapidly. There are two main theories of ageing and one of these is the Disengagement theory. Social scientists, Elaine Cumming and William Henry developed this theory in 1961 in their book called ‘Growing Old’ (Conger). They believed that as people grow older, they disengage from their previous social system and roles that they may have filled in previous years. Cumming and Henry wrote about how older people withdrawing themselves from society was......

...ways. All these opinions of all the writers of different ages grouped on age basis and such motivational theories categorized in three:- A)  Early or ancient theory B)  Monistic or classical theory, and C)  Modern theory. A) ANCIENT THEORY: Theories of motivation before industrial revolution were known as ancient theory of motivation. In those days, men were considered as machines. Supplies of laborers were more than requirement. Industrialist did not bother to motivate the worker. B) CLASSICAL THEORY: This theory comes up during the industrial revolution. Frederick Winslow Taylor was the main exponent of this theory. The theorists assumed men as: 1. Men are crazy and wanting beings 2. Men like money more than anything 3. Men are economic men 4. Men are obedient do not have personality and could be enslaved 5. Men are ambitionless The theorists assumed that motivation is M = E + V, Where M stands for motivation, E for expectation and V for variety of needs. Based on the above principles, Taylor established his piece- rate system-whoever works more will get more money. C) MODERN THEORY: The modern thought of motivation recognized as modern theory. The theorists claimed that men are only economic men until their physiological needs are fulfilled. It is seen that when these needs are satisfied & one has reached the subsistence level men will react to other needs. It is observed that man is not generally economic in nature.  The Two-Factor Theory: Fredrick......

Edward treated Winston for Alzheimer's disease, but since he believed he was destitute, he never charged him for his medical services. In late Fall Winston went to see Edward for a routine checkup and Winston said to Edward, "I want to pay you back for all you have done for me over the years. If you will care for me for the rest of my life, I will give you my office building. I'm frightened because I have no heirs and you are the only one who cares for me. I need to know now that I can depend on you." Edward doubted that Winston owned any office building, but said nothing in response and just completed his examination of Winston and gave him some medication. Since Winston made the statement two years went by. Winston's health worsened and Edward continued to treat him. Edward forgot about Winston's statement regarding the office building. After five years of treating Winston, Edward learned that Winston was indeed the owner of the office building. Edward, remembering......

Colossians 3:1-4

...Colossians 3:1-4 1.) What did the text mean to the Biblical audience? According to the AMG Concise Bible Commentary at the time that this letter was written, Paul was in a Roman prison awaiting his trial. He wrote the letter in response to accounts of a church in Colosse being persuaded by false religious teachers and leaders. People were mixing Christian doctrine with pagan mythology. "The teaching was an early form of Gnosticism, a heresy that created serious trouble throughout the church during the 2nd century¹.” The established church was very new in its formation and it was easily swayed by non-Christian influences. The reason for this letter was to pull the false teachings out of the church and reinstate the real truths of God's Word and its principles. It was also written to establish the authority and role of Jesus Christ. This particular passage was a reminder that we are dead to the old way of life as an unbeliever and born to a new life in Christ. The passage before 3:1-4 says to avoid "outer religion" and the one preceding tells us to live a Godly life. 2.) Measuring the width of the river to cross: The difference between our situation today and that of the Biblical audience in that time I believe is that they didn't have as many resources and support. Today we have plenty of churches, Christian bookstores, Christian leaders, Biblical studies, etc. In that time period I imagine that church communities felt isolated,......

Business owners “must provide employees with a workplace that does not have serious hazards and must follow all OSHA safety and health standards. (Employer have, n.d., p.14) Jake’s rights as an employee of Herman’s car dealership is a right to compensation for work done, privacy, paid time off and healthy and safe work environment. “All employees have the right to receive proper hazard training, to access relevant exposure and medical records and to file a complaint and request an OSHA inspection if OSHA violations are suspected.” (Fagnani, n.d. ¶ 4) Herman did not set up a safe work environment for Jake to complete his job duties in a sufficient manner. The oil change promotion presented challenges for the service department and to make up time they had to work overtime to complete their job functions. The service mechanic technicians became tired due to all the overtime and Jake injured his thumb in the process. This opens up the issue to workman’s compensation because Jake was hurt on the job. The fact that Jake is the service manager does not factor into this case because he is still doing the work of a auto mechanic and is also working overtime hours to complete his job. Herman did not set aside adequate guidelines for this oil change promotion and one of his worker......
