Above the Law

...Above the Law: An Executive’s Double Standard – Fraudulent Use of Corporate Funds Traditionally, the positive image of a company or a brand is very important in the contemporary world. As a result, the question of morality of each individual working within an organization is of a paramount importance. In such a situation there should be no exceptions from the rule and executives could not be in a privileged position. This is the desirable ideal many companies strive to achieve at least in a public eye. However, the reality turns to be quite different from what is expected and the analyzed case of an executive’s double standard is just another evidence of the fact that the real life is so complicated that the common rules, including moral and ethical ones, cannot fully regulate it and often it is necessary to make very difficult decisions getting through double standards. In fact the case of Jack who revealed the fraudulent use of corporate funds by one of the veterans of BMI, Troy Sozuko, seems to be not an exception and the dilemma he has to solve, being quite complicated, is a typical case of double standards existing not only within the whole company but also on the personal level. It is obvious that Troy Sozuko really violated not only legal but also moral norms since he simply used corporate funds for his personal purposes and his gift was perfectly proved by Jack’s investigation. Moreover, it should be said that the executive’s gift is evident also because a thorough...

Never Let Me Go

...Harvard Daniel Vorhaus As we follow Kathy, Tommy, and the rest of their clone cohort from their early days at Hailsham to the “completion “of their lives, it is painfully obvious that these clones carry unique names, faces, and personalities. By the time Ishiguro lets us in on his dirty little secret—that society has created these children to serve as biological vessels intended to exist only long enough to reach maturity before their organs are harvested through forced donation. It is too late the as the clones have already established themselves as ordinary people. They laugh, cry, squabble, reconcile, grow old, and they ultimately fall in love. While Ishiguro’s tale has unmistakable air of science fiction to it, it is difficult for the reader to view it as. It should not be a surprise that society that view them as clones, are anything but normal. Tommy and Kathy are every bit the intelligent, compassionate human beings that you and I are, exactly the sort of people that you would want to be friend. If they differ from the society surrounding them it is because of their society’s inability to conceive of them as anything more than “shadowy objects in test tubes”;not because of their conception in a laboratory. Despite this, even those that know them best remain afraid.

Never Forget

...Tommy had become part of the ground. At least he felt that way as he watched the dew and the daylight make giant shiny cobwebs of the treetops. The sun had not yet risen and a mist lay over the ground, which made the forest seem rather spooky to him. His nose itched and he longed to scratch it, maybe just nudge it a little, but Pa said don’t move, don’t twitch , don’t even breathe hard. Not one arm, one hand, even one finger, he said. “He knows the woods,” Pa told him; “you’ll never know he’s there; suddenly he’ll just be there looking at you, just looking.” It started so long ago, Tommy remembered, almost a year, when he was just eleven. That night, in the hen-yard, with the weasel’s eyes glistening in the flashlight. He never even fired a shot, just stood there with his mouth open, foolish, while the weasel dashed into the woods. And Pa knocking the rifle from his hands and asking, “Why didn’t you shoot? What you waiting on? What’s wrong with you, boy?” “Pa, I . . . I couldn’t, Pa. I just couldn’t.” Pa hunkered down and pulled on a blade of grass. He didn’t say anything for a minute, just knelt there chewing on that grass. “You never did like to kill nothing did you, boy? Even when you was small.” Tommy looked at the ground with out saying anything and his father sighed, “Tommy, dammit, a man always dies a little when he kills something, but it just plain has to be done. Some animals just ain’t no damn good and got the be killed...

Above the Clouds

...Paper Critique: “Above the Clouds: A Berkeley View of Cloud Computing” Reviewer: Carol Williams 1. (10%) State the problem the paper is trying to solve. The paper is trying to demonstrate that EMV (a protocol suite and proprietary protocol framework) is broken and needs to be fixed. The paper makes an attempt to clarify terms, provide simple formulas to quantify comparisons between of cloud and everyday Computing, and identify the top technical and non-technical obstacles and opportunities of Cloud Computing. It also states that confusion by clarifying terms, providing simple figures to quantify comparisons between of cloud and conventional Computing, and identifying the top technical and non-technical obstacles and opportunities of Cloud Computing. “We argue that the construction and operation of extremely large-scale, commodity-computer datacenters at lowcost locations was the key necessary enabler of Cloud Computing, for they uncovered the factors of 5 to 7 decrease in cost of electricity, network bandwidth, operations, software, and hardware available at these very large economies of scale. These factors, combined with statistical multiplexing to increase utilization compared a private cloud, meant that cloud computing could offer services below the costs of a medium-sized datacenter and yet still make a good profit.” 2. (20%) State the main contribution of the paper: solving a new problem, proposing a new algorithm, or presenting a new evaluation...

Never Event

...CMS AND HOSPITAL REINBURSMENT FOR NEVER EVENTS Never Events are errors in medical care that are of concern to both the public and healthcare professionals, and providers. The term "Never Event" was first introduced in 2001 by Ken Kizer, MD, former CEO of the National Quality Forum (NQF), in reference to particularly shocking medical errors such as wrong-site surgery that should never occur (Rosenthal 2012). The CMS issued new rules in 2008 that halt payment to hospitals for treatment of preventable patient complications and injuries, which referred to as “Never Events”. Ten categories of hospital-acquired condition that are reasonably preventable were identify by CMS (ECRI 2008). These are pressure ulcer stages III and IV; falls and trauma; surgical site infection after bariatric surgery for obesity, certain orthopedic procedures, and bypass surgery ,vascular- catheter associated infection; catheter-associated urinary tract infection; administration of incompatible blood; air embolism; and foreign object unintentionally retained after surgery All these are preventable conditions and are subject to nonpayment. This rule that halt payment to hospitals for preventable patient complication and injuries, has tremendous effect on hospital nursing practice. (Herb 2009). As the public becomes aware of the new CMS rules, legal concern have been raise about an increase in malpractice claims related to hospital acquired conditions. Strict liability imposes legal responsibility...

Above Ground Pool Setuo

...Above Ground Setup Angie Benton ECPI University The complicated process I would like to explain about is a above ground pool installation process. This process requires several steps, people, and patience. Install can be a tedious job but if everyone works together it should go well. Step one: You must gather several friends and family who are willing and able to help.Offer a cookout, pool privileges, or other means necessary to get them to help.You cannot install by yourself. Step 2: Find a good level spot in your yard. The area must be level and cleaned of any rocks, sticks, and other debris. Step 3: Install level locking ring to prepared area. Make sure the rings are securely fastened together. The locking ring is what holds your pool wall. Step 4: Put down a ground vapor barrier.The barrier will prevent debris and weeds from growing under your pool. Spread pool sand on barrier and make small mounds around the edge,this aids in the wall support. Step 5: Now comes the fun part and when you need help.Install metal wall , making sure it is securely fastened into the ring. Put one or two on the inside of pool wall, to make sure your mounds stay shaped against wall. Step 6: This step will also require help of your recruits. Position someone on all sides of the pool wall. Unroll your liner, inspecting as you roll it out for any damage. Place the liner inside of pool...

Above the Board: Book Review

...James Babauta MNGT 5990: Corporate Responsibility & Society Submitted to: Dr. Wendy Vonnegut Webster University ABOVE THE BOARD: My Personal Review In conjunction with this course, this book serves as a critical reflection that contrasts the books ethical notions as well as its assumptions with the ethical standards, perceptions, and ideas that we review in the classroom. The main theme of this book is an attempt to extant to its reader several approaches to which a Chairman or Chief Executive Officer can create a set of principles for ethics within an organization, corporation, or enterprise. I must say that one of the good things I enjoyed about this book is how it teaches professionals (primarily the leaders of any big corporations) different approaches and techniques to encompasses business values to the daily lives of the main effort that drives the business to achieve success and meeting the company’s intent, which are the employees … the driving force of any corporation. The various ways in which this book outlines in examples rest on an assumption that the ultimate enablers of any business that values ethics and morality are its employees and subordinates that make things happen. I’ve been employed by several different companies to include the United States Army. I have to say that none of these companies and organizations that I have worked for thus far; were perfect when it comes to exercising ethical values that have been set forth in their core...

Never Again

...Never Again I’ve had enough. Why am I living like this when I don’t have to? I have my own life to live. There’s no reason as to why you, my own father, can control me. I might only be 12 but I can make my own decisions. “Hey Dad, can I go to lunch with Mum?” At this point I was cheerful and enjoying my morning… Well that changed quickly. I didn’t know what I’d done. He lost it. I only asked to go to lunch, what’s the big deal? He was completely mad at me. He was yelling at me until he got in the car and screamed out the driveway. My brother had no idea what he could do to help. Neither of us had ever seen Dad like this. I was a complete mess; my eyes were red and puffy and had tears pouring down my cheeks. Everything hurt. I was scared and upset. I had no idea what to do. How was I supposed to know what to do? I was only 12. I walked back to my room after yet another argument with Dad. For all I know he is oblivious to what or how I feel. Why shouldn’t he be? Yes he’s my dad but I can’t speak my thoughts. Everything has been kept in for too long. I was only just holding together. It was Dad’s weekend to have me but I wanted to go to lunch with mum. I’m not sure what happened to him the night before, or whether it was just his feelings and emotions that had built up over the years, but what I asked must’ve been the last straw. He lost it. He took it all out on me. I could hear the tyres coming back down the gravel driveway. I got up and sat outside on...

... argument on the pros and cons of capital punishment in pertaining to the death penalty but from the facts given Professor Mitchell give a better argument in this article. There are multiple facts stated in this article with confidence stating if a system that is okay with wrongfully killing a few people for the sake of a greater food is unacceptable. There are tons of cases from inmates who are unable to afford a attorney and are awarded a public defender who is already drowning in case work, while prosecutors are throwing there best lawyer on the job (Danzig, 2012). There was a case involving Cameron Todd Willingham a death row inmate who was rejected an appeal because the judge left work early (Danzig, 2012). Professor Mitchell felt as though this did not gain her confidence in capital punishment. This article was both effective and ineffective when trying to establish a position on capital punishment. The author I felt made a better argument in regards to using Professor Mitchell’s facts in stating how the death penalty is becoming a burden on California with cost in various departments. Many states go back and forth with whether or not to honor the death penalty or have mandatory life without parole. Currently there was a poll taken in California to see how the population would divide in regards to who was in favor with the death penalty the results are as follows 75% (681 votes) are against the death penalty, and 25% (266 votes) are pro the death penalty (Danzig,......

Going Above and Beyond

...Going Above and Beyond Lisa Flanagan HSM/220 7/3/15 Professor Hector Smith Jr. Human Service workers can use all the motivation they can get, some days are very rewarding, and you meet a great family that is so happy for your help and attention to their problems. Other days, you cannot wait to get home and have a glass of wine and tell someone anyone who will listen about your horrible day. Going above and beyond, will help to even out those bad and good days. This reward program will motivate, excite and help all employees to want to do a better job as well as help to make the job more enjoyable. My idea would be to create a token based program for human service workers. This program would increase retention and moral. Though it still may be an employer’s market (Sankey, 2009), there are still ways to keep good people working for you, and sometimes it is not all about the pay. There are many of the nine factors of motivation that do not have anything to do with pay. For example respect, quality of work, feeling important at work, and receiving praise for a job well done, none of these things cost a company anything. With the token program, workers would be given a set of guidelines that are their baseline or job descriptions, those things listed there would be expectations. Achieving things above and beyond the job description would earn you tokens that could be redeemed for items or raffle tickets for bigger items. Some of the things that...

Influencing Above and Below

...Influencing Above and Below Shane Bayless MGT 665 May 25, 2015 Ray November, LL.M, J.D. Influencing Above and Below The ability to influence your boss and your subordinates is a critical skill to be successful. When attempting to advance or gain more responsibility within your organization, you will need to have influence with your superiors to recommend you for advancement. It is a similar thought process for influencing your subordinates at work. Seeing both of these types of people as potential allies is always a good first step. How you treat these people will depend on what steps you take to influence them. When influencing your supervisor, what steps will you take? Akai is my direct supervisor and work. He is fairly new to the position and his team has been expanded to nearly double the size he had a few weeks ago. He is eager and willing to assist his subordinates which will allow me to influence him if I find a better position in the company. I will need to work hard, meet my goals, and show him that I am able to handle more responsibility. According to Cohen and Brandford (2005), the approach to influencing your supervisor is handled in four steps; first see your boss as a potential ally or partner, then make sure you understand your boss’s world, then be aware of the resources, or currencies you currently have or need to acquire, and finally pay to how your supervisor wants to be related to. These are the basic steps to helping gain...

Never Been

... he wouldn’t be who he is today. He lives life no regret because he understands he is exactly who he is supposed to be. Society idealizes celebrities and the rich because they may seem to have it all. “Never Been” is like a guide and Logic is the mentor. He says, “I said this shit for years boy, life ain’t what it seems.” These lyrics are uplifting and inspirational because society considers the luxurious life to be easy with no issues. Like I said earlier, Logic is at his high right now in his career, so some people would think that he doesn’t have any problems and lives a wonderful life. He finally realizes that what he once thought is not completely true. With this lifestyle, he still has to overcome some adversities and issues do come up that still hurt them more than some might think. We only see the surface of things when it deals with someone famous rather than further looking into it and not knowing what the inside is truly like. Lastly, Logic raps, “You gotta climb the highest mountain to master the hill, you gotta climb over your ego to master your will.” Constantly throughout this song, Logic is inspiring us and telling us how it really is to accomplish a goal. Practice makes perfect, and if you really want to perfect a simple skill, you have to go above and beyond. In these lyrics, he compares conquering a mountain in order to be able to climb a hill to rising above your own prideful feelings in order to achieve self-mastery. When you listen to this song and...
