Hazen Paper Co. V. Biggins 507 U.S. 604 (1993)

...Hazen Paper Co. v. Biggins 507 U.S. 604 (1993) Case Study JSale. GB41- Employment Law Professor Shawn Pattinson 1 Do you agree with the court that age and years of service are sufficiently distinct to allow for terminations based on years of service and to find no violation of the ADEA where the terminations result in a greater proportion of older workers being fired? The Age Discrimination in Employment Act (the ADEA) forbids discrimination based on age by protecting individuals over the age of forty from “arbitrary” age discrimination. Congress passed the Age Discrimination in Employment Act to “promote employment of older persons based on their ability rather than age (29. U.S.C. 621b. 1990). In Hazen Paper Co. v. Biggins, the Supreme Court of the United States resolved a split in the circuit courts of appeals and held that an employer does not violate the Act when the employer makes a decision wholly motivated by factors other than age. In Hazen Paper, the employer terminated an employee to prevent the employee from vesting in his pension. Under the employer’s plan, the pension vested based upon the employee’s years of service and was not directly related to age. The Supreme Court rejected the plaintiff’s argument, holding that “age and years of service are analytically distinct” and that it is “incorrect to say that a decision based on years of service is necessarily ‘age-based (Hazen Paper Co. v. Biggins. 507 U.S. 604 (1993). The Supreme Court...

...Stability is important because it allows us to obtain the same results with repeated measurement using the same person and the same instruments for reliability from one time to another. Therefore, if I had to design an instrument in which a private, for profit school would be able to evaluate the quality and value of its variety of curricula and courses I would ensure that the instrument has stability by doing an observational study of the same students who are participating in the test. Then those students would be observed a second time to determine reliability. The text states that it is often possible to do more than one observational study of the same subject and then compare them to see if they are consistent. However situational factors do sometimes change that can alter the observation (Cooper & Schindler, 2008). Equivalence is a perspective on reliability that relates to variations at one point in time among observers and samples of items (Cooper & Schindler, 2008). Therefore, to test equivalence, I would use the instrument with more than one group of students, but at the same time. Different groups of students at the same time. Thus, I would be able to determine equivalence is to compare the scores of different observers for the same study. Equivalence is more concerned with how a set of items will categorize an individual. Thus if there are differences in responses between students, but if they are classified the same the test is said to be of...

Db2 Concepts

...DB2 & SQL Concepts 1.2.1 What is SQL? Structured Query Language (SQL) is a standardized language for defining and manipulating data in a relational database. In accordance with the relational model of data, the database is perceived as a set of tables, relationships are represented by values in tables, and data is retrieved by specifying a result table that can be derived from one or more tables. DB2 transforms the specification of a result table into a sequence of internal operations that optimize data retrieval. This transformation occurs when the SQL statement is prepared. This transformation is also known as binding. 1.2.2 Static SQL The source form of a static SQL statement is embedded within an application program written in a host language such as COBOL. The statement is prepared before the program is executed and the operational form of the statement persists beyond the execution of the program. A source program containing static SQL statements must be processed by an SQL precompiler before it is compiled. The precompiler checks the syntax of the SQL statements, turns them into host language comments, and generates host language statements to invoke DB2. 1.2.3 Dynamic SQL A dynamic SQL statement is prepared during the execution of an SQL application, and the operational form of the statement is not persistent. The source form of the statement is a character...

...Life’s paths are guided by a set of rules call Ethics. Ethics are principles that set forth parameters for us to determine what is right or wrong. These parameters define practices that should be performed in our personal and business lives. The Programming Code of Ethics and God’s Ten Commandments are different in nature but possess some similarities. The Programming Code of Ethics speaks against dishonesty. It states that “...never reuse copyrighted code unless the proper license is purchased or permission is obtained” (Programming Code of Ethics). Use of unauthorized copyrighted code is known as copyright infringement. Copyright infringement as defined by copyright holders is theft (Wikipedia.org). God commands us not to steal (Exodus 20:15 KJV). It is immoral to be dishonest. In the Ten Commandments God tell us “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain” (Exodus 20:7 KJV). This verse tells us we are to be reverence to God and not defame his name. The Programming Code of Ethics has such similarity when it states “…never defame the profession” (Programming Code of Ethics). As professionals we should be loyal and respect the profession. The Programming Code of Ethics also talks about truthfulness. It states “…never maliciously injure the reputation of an employer or members of the development team” (Programming Code of Ethics). God commands that “Thou shalt not bear...

...LaShonda Tate Kaplan University Corporate Tax Decisions and Strategies Unit 1 Chapter 1 12. What are three characteristics of a sole proprietorship? Are these characteristics the same as or different from those of a partnership? Three characteristics of a sole proprietorship are 1.) the person cannot be an employee of the business, 2.) that person is solely liable for all debts of the business, and 3.) the results of operations are reported on a Schedule C which is included in the owners personal tax return. Majority of these characteristics are different than those of a partnership; however, they both share common characteristics which are the owner is responsible for the company’s debt and partners/owners cannot be employees. In a partnership, there can be more than one owner general partner and each is liable for partnership debts. Limited partners are only liable for their investment in the partnership partners if the partnerships elect to be treated as limited liability companies to enjoy limited liability. 19.

...Slots, Tables, and All that Jazz: Managing Customer Profitability at the MGM Grand Hotel Below are suggested questions for the case of MGM Grand. As usual, you can skip any question that you think unimportant, and you are encouraged to address issues not listed below. 1. Using the information in the MGM Players Club dataset, discuss the differences in the various segments of players at the MGM Grand. Some hints for potential analyses: a. Begin by classifying customers according to their attractiveness from a static point of view (i.e., current profitability). Measure the concentration of profits. b. Look at some aspects of behavior of the different groups (you can use as cut-off points total theoretical win of $500, $10,000 and $100,000): i. Number of trips ii. Trip length iii. Whether they play in tables or slots iv. Loyalty to a certain property c. Expand your study by measuring attractiveness from a dynamic point of view (i.e., current and future profitability). The three-year span of the databases is insufficient for a rigorous lifetime value analysis but adequate for a discussion of basic concepts and tools used to assess customer attractiveness. For instance, what player characteristics in 2002 increase the likelihood that the player will come back in 2004? 2. How does the MGM Grand derive value from its Players Club program and its player information systems? 3. Do you think it is appropriate for hosts from any property to have access to the entire profile of a...

...Reaching Out-The Three Movements of the Spiritual Life Tammy T. Smith Liberty University PACO 506 SUMMARY Henri J. M. Nouwen’s book, Reaching Out: The Three Movements of the Spiritual Life, examines three aspects of spiritual movement in which he unveils how humanity relates to self, others, and God to achieve true spirituality. The first movement revealed is the movement from loneliness to solitude, second is the movement from hostility to hospitality, and finally, is the movement from illusion to prayer. Nouwen (1975) describes loneliness as a universal experience that affects even the most intimate relationships. He identifies loneliness as one of the universal sources of human suffering. Some of the mental suffering in the world is unnecessary because it subscribes to the false expectation that we are called to alleviate each other’s loneliness. “When our loneliness drives us away from ourselves into the arms of our companions in life, we are driving ourselves into excruciating relationships, tiring friendships and suffocating embraces” (Nouwen, 1975, p. 30). “To live a spiritual life we must first find the courage to enter into the desert of our loneliness and change it by gentle and persistent efforts into a garden of solitude” (Nouwen, 1975, p. 34) Next, he explores the benefits of solitude. Solitude of the heart enables us to perceive and understand the world from a quiet inner center, tuned into the world and words of others while paying attention to our...

...Seven Customer Databases – An Integration Problem You are working as a consultant for Integrated Trading, a financial services firm. They have merged several times, and they have brought you in to straighten out their customer database problem. They have too many customer databases, one for each of their services. Many of the customers overlap several services. They want you to design a system that will integrate the databases. Their problem scenario is the following: Last week, Mellon bank called in to trade an equity portfolio. After they provided all the information to make the trade, they said they also wanted to sell some convertible debt. They were transferred to the convertible desk – the salesperson asked them all over again for their customer information. They were really annoyed, and complained that not only do they need to explain themselves every time they are reconnected in the company, but that their bills, reports, and salespeople are all different across the five different services they buy from Integrated Trading. They threatened to bring their business elsewhere unless they are treated as a single customer. You have found out that the customer databases are just one part of the issue. Each database is controlled by a complex customer application that involves large amounts of custom code, ranging in size from 150,000 lines of Java to 1,000,000 lines of COBOL. You have been told to come with a solution that does not involve changing this...
