2. Identify and briefly describe the specific fraud risk factors present during the 2000 NextCard audit. How should these factors have affected the planning and execution of the engagement?
First of all, the nature of NextCard operations was very risky. The fact that they authorized credit to customers without properly analyzing their credit report history was the reason of the losses. NextCard was primarily concern of having a large amount of customers regardless of the risk. Because NextCard was on online business, they should execute more caution when accepting clients.

Me Myself and Ego

... (phallic stage). Should any one of these early stages either be over- or undergratified, the person could develop a fixation and become locked into that stage of development.   Freud’s enduring contributions is the idea that an individual’s personality is composed of three parts, the id, superego, and ego. The id, which resides in the unconscious mind, is driven by only one thing: the desire for personal pleasure, "me, me, me." For instance, if you have an urge to satisfy your hunger but have no cash, you may simply steal a hotdog from a street vendor. The superego, which mostly resides in the unconscious, is the source of what we call our conscience. It is the part of our mind that tells us what is right and wrong, including social norms. The superego wants to obey standards. If we don’t, then we may feel guilty or anxious. The superego would tell the id not to steal the hotdog because it is wrong and you might get arrested. The third part of the personality is the ego, which resides in the conscious mind. The role of the ego is that of a mediator. It balances  the demands of the id with the demands of the superego. Freud believed that the mind tries to protect itself from frustration and severe distress such as war, rape, death, and so on. He believed that we have several techniques for this, which he called defense mechanisms (Corsini, 1994, p. 390). Here are a few common defense mechanisms that you might recognize: Displacement, Compensation and......

Me Myself and My Future

...Actually, at this moment, I cannot seen myself 5 years from now, because I’m not expecting the better or best life in future. Cause for me, before you reach your dreams you have to work hard to fulfil your dreams, but hopefully I can get my dreams in a fastest way and in good way without stepping someone. After a few years I can see myself in the ship, navigating the ship at the oceans and travel all around the world. I know at this stage of my college life is the one of the hardest thing, because you are far from your family, and you have to work for your own life, I didn’t expect that this moment I can manage myself good, because at my high school life is different at this moment cause in high school you can be free at all times and there is a parent who can guide you and accept you even you gave them many problems. On high school there is parents wash your clothes, preparing your meal and etc. this moment that I am studying here at MPFC, this is my stepping stone to achieve my goal and dreams. After 5 years from now I can see myself at a ship or a luxury ship or a big ship meeting different types of person. I can see myself successful, helping my family and others. I can see myself a great man serving other people, I can see myself enjoying my life, I can see myself a inspiration to others that they can tell he or I a successful man. Life is too short so enjoy it. As you waste your breathe complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last. Appreciate what......

Me Myself and the World of New Media

...When I think of myself I think about a specific type of media that would describe me best as a person, new media is what comes to my mind. New media is mostly internet and television based. When I think of new media, I automatically think digital. Now media is much more convenient and certainly more accessible to the public than it used to be, due to the fact we have the world at our disposal super computers in our pockets, our smart phones. It puts the whole word at our finger tips opposed to listening to radio to get our main source of news. I learn by watching and listening and reading news of varying types, styles and forms. I have different sites and channels I to go to for different types of information. When it comes to what is happening in the world today, such as bombings etc., war wise I watch the O'Rielly Factor with my dad or at the least the first 20 minutes almost every night to get a better understanding on the world we are living in. I feel confident in the show I watch for world news is current and up to date. I don't feel that I get shorted by the information that I am receiving from my television due to the factor that I believe, more conservative views and feel that his opinions on government have helped me shape and develop my own based on what he has said. I feel and think he does a good job presenting a fact based show with information from "Both sides of the isle". Still I like to keep an open mind, look at facts, study more than just a single...

...Please do not tell me anything here that you do not want me to share with the class. 1. Describe your business experience. • Sales Coordinator at Courtyard by Marriott South Boston • Cashier for Stop & Shop and CVS • Attended high school at Brook Farm Business & Service Career Academy 2. Describe your experience with sustainability issues in business. When I was on Co-op at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in South Boston, the hotel franchise promoted a green environment campaign. This campaign provided hotel owners with a roadmap to develop and operate more sustainable hotels. In this campaign, many of the diner items in the hotel such as coffee cups and napkins were the main focus. 3. Describe your attitude toward the natural world. Describe any particular adventures there, also. • My attitude towards the natural world is of mixed emotions. As human beings, we have minimal control of many natural phenomenons in our world. Because of this, there is a lot of debate between science and the mythical being known as God. For years, I have heard many arguments of this debate and I have never been able to choose a side. Due to that, I have extremely mixed emotions about the natural world. 4. Describe your experience with sustainability issues in your personal life. In terms of my personal life, maintaining the relationship with my parents has been a challenge. Once I moved out of my home and onto campus, the feeling of being alone and having my own rules...

Me Myself and I

...My Self Improvement Survey Personal Thinking Styles After taking the LSI (Life Styles Inventory) survey, I noticed certain things about my personality and my thinking styles. Certain styles rated higher than others, but there were a few that stayed constant. The two longest style extensions have the greatest influence on my behavior, and are called your primary and backup styles. Going through these styles in particular, I noticed my primary style is approval and my backup style is conventional style. In the LSI index, “The Approval scale measures our need to be accepted by others to increase or sustain our feelings of self-worth. While the desire to be approved of is natural, problems occur when approval-seeking becomes a need, and ultimately our standard way of interacting with others.” This means I need people to approve my lifestyle. I try so hard for people to impress people with my personality and character, but sometimes it’s not enough. This style is categorized as having low self-esteem, an over concern with wanting to be liked as well as complications with conflict and confrontation. In this case, I am the type of person who tries very hard to be liked by others. Sometimes it can backfire because I show a persona of myself to people where I will act like someone I am not so that they accept me. In this world we live in, it’s a dog eat dog world where people don’t care about your feelings. They will do anything to get to the top of ladder. Personally, I am the...

Me, I and Myself

...Me, I and myself I always ask myself: is it me, when I do something; could I do it better this time or did I do it for myself. I have time to think about these things while working. I work as a photographer and this job gives me a chance to express myself. It helps me even to understand some things better, because at first view I see things one’s way but after a while a see them completely different. The job gives me even the freedom to choose what to shoot and so the theme of my pictures often responds to my mood at that day. Or I can take pictures that will make me feel better than I do at that moment. Being a photographer is a job with so many various purposes – as many as the people are. Some photographers make only black and white pictures, other make colorful or extravagant or pictures that help in a science. The objective of the camera is like an eye of a man - everyone sees the world in a different way. But nobody can’t hide behind his work, even if he tries – it shows what we are. The most important thing for a picture to become a good one is to have its own feeling. When you a see a picture and it touches you, it rises in you some kind of feeling, that means that this capture was worth. Looking at some pictures make me think about many things and sometimes I can even change my point of view about something. While taking a picture I think about what’s my purpose for shooting exactly this or that. But after the picture is ready, it...

...Recently I found myself at a crossroad in life. I needed to evaluate what I really wanted to accomplish and why. Should I continue on the same path I was on or take a side trip leading to new opportunities? After giving it much thought, I determined the latter choice coincided with my personal goal of attaining my bachelor degree. This paper will discuss my personal goals as they apply to my educational career, finaical goals, carrerr, goals Returning to college, as a working adult, is a challenge for anyone. Up to this point, I had been successful obtaining positions that would normally require a bachelor degree. I was able to prove I was suitable for management positions in various capacities simply with hard work and perseverance. My last position exposed me to new areas of interest in technology and project management that I desiderated pursuing. After I became unemployed last year I found myself back in the job market. It had become much more competitive than I ever had known. However, this presented me with the opportunity to pursue my newfound interests. This is the primary objective that I hope to meet by attending the University of Phoenix. Identifying strengths and weaknesses that will affect my success as a student requires more examination. I possess many attributes of strength that will help me achieve my goals, primarily my high work ethic and relentless quest for knowledge. I take pride in my accomplishments and ability to recognize opportunities. I......

... the City Hall. I don’t have any experience in joining any activities in our community. Last time, I wanted to join in the Sangguniang Kabataan campaign. But unfortunately, there were a lot of school works that I had to finish. I also tried to apply in a summer job program of the Quezon City hall. I attended in the orientation but I failed to submit my requirements. The main reason why I haven’t joined in any community activities is because of my studies. Yes, I am willing, but sometimes there are conflicts in my schedule. While I am studying, I find ways to earn extra money. I sell some products in our school such as foods and accessories. Since my mother doesn’t have fixed income, there are times that we cannot afford paying my tuition fee though my one aunt is already providing half of my tuition fee. When there’s an exam, sometimes we’re just making a promissory note so the administrative will let me take the exam. There are also times that I don’t have enough money to buy my own book. What I do is either borrow a book in the library or photocopy every chapter we have discussed. Though I am now going through to these kinds of difficulties, I keep on going and dreaming. I believe that if I exert effort and faith, I will achieve my goals in life. I became interested to this program because my friend, who is already a scholar of SYDP, told me about it. As what I know, SYDP means Scholarship and Youth Development Program. When I heard about it, I......

...Emotions are one’s state of mind and natural responses, but scientific discourse has drifted to other meanings. It’s also evident that emotion senses on the meanings. I have experienced more positive emotions over the past four day. These emotions are characterized by happiness and positive expectations. These emotions are expectation of a brighter future. This because I had been informed a job opportunity had been secured on my behalf. This has been my dream since I was born. This was a dream come true because, I have always been thinking about the job. These positive emotions brought about anxiety in me thus I was not able to settle. I have also had negative emotions in the last four days. These emotions have generated negative thoughts in me. This can be as a result to a response of an expected trip that I was eager to be present. I could not believe my ears to hear that the trip had been cancelled due to the fact that one of our friends had lost their parents. The fact that I was not aware also brought about a negative emotion (Cassady & Eissa, 2009). Emotions are complex. According to some theories, they are a state of feeling that results in physical and psychological changes that influence our behavior. This can also be linked to the arousal of the nervous system with various states and strengths of arousal relating, apparently, to particular emotions. It’s also linked in some way to behavioral tendency. A similar description can be derived from the sociology...

Me Myself and I

...I have no single philosophy for life, but rather three philosophies. Each of which has different meaning. My three philosophies include the following: work hard, take pride in myself and the accomplishments that I make, and also everyone is on this planet for a reason. In the following paragraphs I will explain each of my three philosophies. From this, I hope that others will understand why I look at life the way that I do. The first of my three philosophies, to work hard, can be very easily explained. I feel that if money or a gift given to me by another person because I earned the reward is much more valued. In other words, knowing that I worked hard, did a good job, and deserve a reward makes me feel good inside. I also feel that all persons should have to work and support themselves. If a person doesn't wish to put forth any effort and work hard to support themselves, then that person deserves nothing. The next of my three philosophies is to take pride in myself and the accomplishments that I make. I have found that if I don't take pride in myself and what I do than I might as well give up on life. My reason for this being that no one else will think highly of me if I, myself, don't. I always set goals for myself before I begin a project or take part in an activity. My rule is to "Set my goals high, but obtainable," and although I may not always reach all of my goals that I have set, I should always be proud of what I have done. My final philosophy, everyone...

... think I was about four or five back then. The thing about churches in Vietnam is that they’re not big enough for everyone, so we decided to stand under a tree. There were orchids on it but I couldn’t take them as they were too high. He told me to closed me eyes and prayed for God and I would have an orchid. I did what he told me to and then when I opened my eyes, my Dad gave me an white orchid. It was beautiful and we did this every time we went to the church. I know that this is not really an amazing story, but it’s special to me. What can I say? I was just a kid and kids believe almost everything adults say. I think that was the moment when I started to believe in God. Back when I used to follow my beliefs in God, I did everything what Christian people do. I went to the church every Sunday, prayed to God and be a good person. Those are the most Commons things that people who are Christian in my country do. However, at this moment, I just try to be a better man not only for everyone but also for myself. I don’t go to church and pray to God anymore. I don’t know and don’t care if my action is a sin or not, as long as I’m a good person, I’m okay with it. I used to read the Bible a lot. I read them before going to bed every night. Sometimes, I just sat quietly in front of a picture or a statue of God. Sometimes, I prayed to him for the thing I want such as toys and good grades at school. For now, I don’t do any of...

...My name is Pamela and I am 18 years old, I just recently graduated from my hometown high school in May of 2011. I chose to get my degree online because I work 2 jobs to support myself since I have neither of my parents and I’ve had to raise myself. The reason that I’m trying to get my degree is for my older brother to be proud of me he is the one person that has showed me that it can be done being a sergeant in the army and recent grad from college with his new profession of a police officer showed me that it can be done, and as he said himself it can be done. I also chose it so I can be a role model to my 14 year old brother and we can lead him to the right path. I currently work at a pharmacy and in the day I take care of my nieces but I will be starting to work at a hospital as a patient access representative. I feel like everything happens for a reason and well I wasn’t entirely sure of doing an online program at the beginning. So one day when I was out job hunting a advertising for the University of Phoenix came up and that’s when I decided to give them a call. That’s when I met my advisor Kim and we instantly clicked, and that’s how started school at the University of Phoenix. I chose the medical field profession because it has always been a passion of mine and I really feel that I can help people everything about the medical field profession fascinates me and keeps more motivated to keep going. Well that’s my story....
