1. Explain if it matters that a parent literally had nothing to do with a biological child in order for the child to take advantage of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to care for that parent.
The Family and Medical Act (FMLA) were implemented in 1993, and most companies comply with the requirements. The FMLA provides to employees who birth and care of the employee's child, or placement for adoption or foster care of a child with the employee; and employee who cares for an immediate family member (spouse, child, parent) who has a serious health condition; or an employee who care for employee's own serious health condition. So it doesn’t matter whether or not the relationship of the care giver is of biologically genes.

2. Explain whether the size of the business can have any effect on whether Tony is eligible for family leave under the FMLA.
According to the FMLA, Tony is eligible leave under the FMLA, because that act, applies to all public agencies, state, local and federal employers and the private sector (car dealerships), who employs 50 or more employees in 20 or more work-weeks and who are engaged in commerce or in any industry or activity affecting commerce – including join employers and successors of covered employees. In the scenario,

3. Explain whether Herman can or cannot imply that if Tony takes a leave of absence under the FMLA, he may not have a job when he returns.

Herman implying that Tony cannot take a leave of absence under the FMLA is a ploy to keep him on the job. Herman is more concerned with the financial gain of his business and cares nothing about Tony circumstances. Although Herman holds his father dear…...

...Defined Contribution Plan- A defined contribution plan is a retirement plan that requires that an individual "account" be set up for each participant in the plan. It is called "defined contribution" because a participant can only contribute a fixed maximum amount to the plan each year. The contributions are not based on the expected retirement benefit, but rather on a percentage that is specified in the plan (401kpsp.com, 2012). Other Post-Retirement Benefits- These benefits that fall within this category are of the non-cash payment benefits available to employees, including dental, vision care, legal services, and tuition credits. These additional benefits, along with traditional pension benefits can be a large expenditure for companies offering these plans, especially if the plans are fully.

...Issue The airline industry is facing one of the most challenging environments in its history. A global economic slowdown, punctuated by the events of September 11th, has led to a decline in passenger traffic, continued yield reductions, decreased load factors, and burgeoning fleet, insurance and labor costs. As airlines grapple with how to deliver a consistent and distinctive customer experience while maintaining low operating costs, they have turned to the promise of CRM. Although operational and security issues became top of mind immediately after September 11th, CRM has gradually come back into focus as airlines recognize the importance of effective customer management in establishing long term competitive advantage. CRM’s promise is indeed compelling strengthened loyalty driving increased revenue, with lower acquisition costs and improved operational efficiency. For full-service airlines, CRM is an essential component of their corporate strategy, the means of differentiating themselves from competitors in the eyes of the customer. And although low cost carriers may be less reliant on CRM as a means of driving competitive differentiation, even they must invest in fundamental CRM technologies and processes to manage the customer efficiently over the course of the travel experience. Increasingly, airlines are recognizing that CRM is a long term investment, with the true benefits reaped through profitable lifelong customer relationships. Although many airlines understand...

Related Concepts PA CHECK IF OK On Study Habits According to Palm Beach Community College (PBBC, 2008), they recommend that student’s study should have at least three hours out of class for every hour spent in class. They also said that a student must have a special place to study with plenty of room to work. And students should not be cramped. They presuppose that study time will go better if a learner take few minutes at the start to straighten things up. A desk and straight-backed chair is usually best. “Don’t get too comfortable--a bed is a place to sleep, not to study” as what they said. A student must have everything close at hand (book, pencils, paper, coffee, dictionary, computer, calculator, tape recorder, etc.) before starting to study. Students are not suggested to spend on time jumping up and down to get things. The PBCC suggests also that distracting noise should be minimized however they said that there are some people need sound and some like silence. In this case, a learner must finds what works for him or her. Culprits are family and friends. consider a "do not disturb" sign and...

..., it is for everyone who wants to have a procure ghetto, in the present and the futurity. Socially responsible investment (SRI) refers to investing in companies based on financial and social performance, where the latter includes such concerns as the environment, sweatshop labor, and animal testing. SRI strongly resembles pro-social behaviors and social dynamics found in experimental settings. The role of fairness-related sanctioning is emphasized, wherein companies that treat their various stakeholders “fairly” are screened into SRI portfolios, while those treating them poorly are screened out. It is argued that, because SRI creates opportunities for businesses to thrive relative to their competitors by improving social performance, it creates some scope for pro-social change. Still, the magnitude of changes that can be expected from voluntary changes in business behavior remains to be determined. 1c. Discuss in WELL-DEVELOPED paragraphs your ORIGINAL personal insights about the roles of market efficiency, asset pricing and pro-social investing. Ans.) The simplest definition of market efficiency is that the price already reflects the available information and thus buying or selling the stock should, on average, return you only a "fair" measure of return (after transaction costs) for the associated risk.

Nursing students, actually in a broad sense, all of the students’ faces some series of challenges and stressors. But more likely, the nursing students are the one who are in the center of experiencing stress. The stress maybe came from their friends, professors, colleagues, family or relatives, and even relationships and competition. Everyday, students doesn’t only needs a brain to do a workload and be happy to grab it fast but they also founding certain emotions in dealing with the other people and not always facing the thick pages of a book. Nursing students experience stress severe enough to induce mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. The source of the stress in nursing students is related in their learning experience and the programs that they enrolled into. The learning experience is a series of planned activities in the community that would prepare students technically and professionally should they decide to pursue higher education in the health profession. Another factor is the time allocated in the nursing college’s classroom and laboratory.

No matter how minimal or extensive they are, they serve in part as baseline data. This Chapter presents the literature/references gathered by the researcher. These studies included foreign and local studies/literature having direct or indirect bearing on the present study. Frank Pogue (2000) did a research project to determine why students fail. What he founds to be true in that study habits survey was that more than 30 years ago still rings true today-students fail because they do not know how to study. The best advice he can give is to develop sound study skills. He said that a student should make sure that he/she has a good study environment, a good desk, a sturdy chair, good light, comfortable room temperature and a quiet atmosphere. That means he/she should eliminate all external and internal distractions. Second, get a good overview of the assignment before starting the work. Know what skills, facts and ideas that are expected to master and the ground that are expected to cover. Start with most difficult subjects first, while the mind is freshest and most receptive. In his experimental study on the effect of learning, Winter stated that the first and probably the most important thing needed was to acquire the habits of studying effectively. Effective methods of study consisted basically of those fundamental principles......

On the basis of BMI, all participants were divided into three groups that is under weight whose BMI was less than 19 kg / m2, normal who’s BMI was between 19 and 26 kg / m2and overweight who’s BMI was more than 26 kg / m2. The mean BMI of the three groups in the 52 participants was 150.1 mg/dl ±31.7, mean LDL-C was 91.6 mg/dl ±22.6, mean HDL-C was 39.7 mg/dl ±9.1 and mean triglycerides were 93.9 mg/dl ±41.6. Mean systolic blood pressure was 114.1 mmHg ±11.8 and mean diastolic blood pressure was 74.1 mmHg ±7.9. There were significant differences in mean serum HDL-C, triglycerides, systolic and diastolic blood pressure among three BMI groups (P<0.05) but none in mean serum cholesterol and LDL-C. No significant correlation was found between any of the lipid profile variables and blood pressure variables with BMI.

The definition of the FMLA is discussed, covered persons, and employer eligibility. As relating to the video, an explanation of whether or not it matters that a parent’s involvement determines a child’s participation is discussed, whether the size of a business matters, whether or not Herman can imply Tony’s employment status when he returns back to work, and to what extent can an employer make their own decisions and eligibility determination concerning FMLA.

... increasing their involvement in education, can bear an influence on children’s educational outcomes: modeling, reinforcement, and direct instruction. Modeling theory predicts that children will emulate their parents’ behavior; by devoting interest and time to activities related to schooling, parents thus enhance the possibilities that children do well in school. Reinforcement indicates the mechanism by which parent give their children interest, attention, praise and rewards related to behaviors that lead to school success. If these psychological incentives do not interfere with the child’s intrinsic motivation and are valued by the child, they increase the effort exerted by the child to behave in ways important to school success. Finally, parents can influence their children’s educational outcomes by direct instruction. Educational outcomes which are influenced by parental involvement through the cited mechanisms include both cognitive skills (especially through direct instruction, but also through modeling and reinforcement) and non-cognitive skills, among which the most significant – according to Hoover-Dempsey & Sandler [1995] – is the child’s sense of efficacy for doing well at school. The theory predicts that children whose parents are involved in their education will be more likely to develop a strong, positive sense of efficacy for successfully achieving in school-related tasks than will children whose parents are not involved. 3 The Determinants of......
