What is right? What is wrong? The study of ethics is nothing if not a complex topic, what might be right for someone might not be for another. In this particular case I fell Darlene Druyun is acting unethical. Among the twelve categories of ethical dilemmas in the Article by Jennings, Darlene falls into a few.
“ Buying Influence or engaging in Conflict of Interest”, Is one of the ethical dilemmas mentioned. Darlene was in charge of contracting airplane manufactures for defense contracts. She often dealt with Boeing Inc. through which she got to know many Boeing mangers. When her daughter and son-in-law could not find new employment, she tried to influence Boeing managers to hire them by indicating that she would be favorable towards Boeing in offering contracts. She is abusing her job by engaging in this kind of favoritism towards a company that has helped secure jobs for her daughter and son-in-law in confidence that Darlene will offer the contracts to Boeing over other companies.
Darlene, I feel, is in the middle of what is called in the article as, “Balancing Ethical dilemma.” Her family members are unemployed and on the verge of losing their unemployment benefits. She feels a need, a responsibility to help them. She is in a position to use her contacts developed on her job to help them get a job. I don think her helping her family member to get a job through the network she developed at her job. After all networking is one of the most talked about subject in college. I feel Darlene was unethical when she hinted that she would be favorable towards Boeing if they hired her family members. She did not get the balance right and thus I feel she has been unethical.
The ethics model -The Front-page-of-the-Newspaper test- can be applied here. This test requires that a decision maker envision how a reporter would describe the decision on the front page of the…...

...My Microtel Inn & Suites in Cabanatuan has been a great experience for me as a hospitality student because the seminar and stay they had offered to us students had enhanced and build our knowledge on the different sides of the hospitality industry, but it also made a great part on our personal growth as a person and as a worker in the near future. The first seminar that was discussed is about the brief history of the hotel industry and how the Microtel Inn & Suites had started in the world of hotel industry. Mr. Joel Cucueco facilitated the first seminar and discussed on the achievements and milestones of Microtel Cabanatuan. The powerful words and little witty things Mr. Cucueco has said made the opening seminar active, not just because there is a Goya to anyone who will answer Mr. Cucueco’s question, but because the topic is very interesting to be taken for granted. The next topic is the housekeeping department and we are teached on how to make a bed. After  the demonstration of the bed making, we were challenged  that there will be a bed making competition in the morning, everyone was challenged to make-up the bed with the best they can. The succeeding seminars were barista and entrepreneurship which was facilitated by Mr. Philip Tiongson who is the bar manager of Liquid Coffee Bar and Resto. The whole crowd was so alive that everyone was laughing on their chairs. Mr. Tiongson was a whole package of a speaker because he is not a boring speaker. He discussed on the...

...THE VILLAGE (2004) PHILOSOPHICAL ISSUES: Ethics, Consequentalism, Logic CHARACTERS: Ivey Walker (Bryce Dallas Howard, blind heroine), Lucius Hunt (Joaquin Phoenix, Ivey’s intended), Noah Percy (Adrien Brody, mentally impaired friend of Ivey and Lucius), Mr. Walker (William Hurt, father of Ivey and the village’s leading elder), Ms. Hunt (Sigourney Weaver, Lucius’s mother and another elder) OTHER FILMS BY DIRECTOR M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN: Signs (2002), Unbreakable (2000), Stuart Little (1999), The Sixth Sense (1999) SYNOPSIS: The film appears to be set in an early American society that is ruled by a group of elders that is comprised of both men and women. Scenes depicting youthful dalliance, communal intimacy, and a wedding of two of the young colonials give the village a utopian feel. However, the village is haunted by the death of its own members to disease and the fear of creatures that inhabit the woods outside the village. The colonials refer to these creatures as “those we do not speak of,” and the villagers have negotiated a deal with the creatures that neither will venture into the other’s territory. Lucius Hunt wishes to go to the neighboring towns to seek medicine that would improve the village’s well-being. He believes that his good intentions will spare him the wrath of the creatures, but the elders refuse to grant him permission. After Lucius becomes engaged to Ivey Walker, Noah Percy stabs him out of jealousy. As his condition worsens, Mr. Walker...

...Knowing your body shape is the key to successful dressing, no matter what trends or fashion fads are happening. Stick to the rules and you’ll never be stuck for something to wear again APPLE BODY SHAPE Of all the fruit in the fashion basket, the apple, with its rounded tummy and big bust, can be one of the most difficult to dress. Luckily you also often benefit from slim hips, a great bum and lovely legs. Find out how to make the most of your apple body shape with these expert fashion tips. Use clothes to sculpt your midriff, so it looks less like an apple and more like an apple core. At the same time, draw attention to your favourite bits – that cleavage, those legs, and anything else you really like. Body control underwear will work wonders to define your middle area too, pulling you in at the waist. Don’t hide in baggy trousers. Show off your lovely legs with straight or boot-cut trousers. Look for flat-fronted trousers with a wide waistband to draw attention away from the stomach. Open up the neckline. V-necks and scoop-necks are good for apple-shaped ladies as you often have a great bust. Don’t be afraid to show it off. Use structured, tailored jackets to give definition to your upper body and show off good shoulders. Look for single-breasted versions with one or two buttons. Wrap dresses are always a winner for an apple body shape as they fit nicely over a fuller bust. A side tie on the dress will draw attention away from the stomach. Drop earrings will draw...

...GRAND FINANCE CONVENTION] “Invest Local. Aim Global: Be better. Be Bolder. Be a Risk Taker.” (Summary, Reaction & Application) Mendoza, Melvin Ross T. A2C Summary “Great Beginning starts here” Perhaps these words from the tag line of our school entered my mind as we attended the Grand Finance Convention held at Sm Cinema 1&2, Lipa City. This was indeed a day of opportunity for us students to learn more about the real world. Both cinemas have their invited speakers for the topics that should be discussed during the day. After we have settled down the program started with a doxology, followed by the national anthem, and the opening remarks by the dean. The first speaker came up to the stage as he introduced himself, Mr.Jesi Bondoc. He discussed the introduction and definition of investment as well as his steps or rules to guide us in investing. He briefly emphasized each step starting with the first one; always begin with the end in mind. It means that before investing we must have a goal or reason for doing this so that we can be motivated because we know our purpose in entering such risk. There is no sense of doing something if you don’t have any plans from it. Even though you gained a lot, if you don’t know where to use it, then it will be such a waste. Second, we must investigate before investing. It is just necessary that we are aware of any details we could get before getting involved in a certain decision. It would be in our...

...The Technology Choices Written By: Predrag Jakovljevic Published On: August 27 2005 Microsoft's Uncontested UI Supremacy In the battle between Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS) and the UK-based the Sage Group plc (LSE: SGE.L) for the small-to-medium enterprise (SME) market segment, technology choices will be a major factor. The previous parts of this note detailed the strategies of these two major vendors and analyzed how the market would respond. But, going a mile further, there are some important areas where the synergy and a bridge between MBS and the rest of the "classic" Microsoft world could take place, such as the previously mentioned "user experience" mantra. The basic hypothesis is that Office (i.e., Word, Excel, and Outlook) constitute the core of the user experiences of many millions of existing and prospective desktop customers. Leveraging that ubiquitous look-and-feel acquaintance in the MBS product lines (and in those of rapidly increasing independent software vendors [ISV]) is something that can add tremendous clout to MBS sales efforts—with the supposedly minimal training for the information technology (IT)-resource constrained SME market. In fact, the ongoing Outlook, Excel, or Word user interface (UI) metaphor moves may speak volumes about where the entire market is going. Possibly the most vocal in that regard could be the recent announcement made by Microsoft and SAP that they are jointly developing a product that will integrate back-end...

...Keith Davis EGR 104 DATE \@ "MMMM d, y" March 30, 2014 Historical Tech Critical Review An inquiry of keyboard layouts A keyboard layout is the arrangement of the keys on a keyboard or typewriter. Rather than following, “A, B, C, D E, F…” you will notice that your keyboard follows the layout of “Q, W, E, R, T, Y”, known as the QWERTY keyboard layout. The creator of QWERTY, Christopher Latham Sholes, had originally invented a layout with a first mentioned style, where every letter follows an alphabetical order: - 3 5 7 9 N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z  2 4 6 8 . A B C D E F G H I J K L M This soon became an issue with typewriters as the metal arms (typebars) would clash and jam. Sholes began to rearrange his keyboard layout so that commonly used letter combinations in the English language, such as “th” and “st” were further apart, thus preventing the typebars from jamming. Contrary to popular belief, this strategy was not to slow down the typist but rather speed them up by preventing jams. After many keyboard layout variations and Sholes’ collaboration with partners, it was eventually sold to E. Remington & Sons. From there, the company made many adjustments to QWERTY, eventually arriving at the modern layout most of us use today: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 - = Q W E R T Y U I O P [ ] \ A S D F G H J K L ; ' Z X C V B N M , . / To reiterate, this is currently the most popular keyboard layout, which makes it an indisputable success. Many things have lead to its...

...Urban consolidation and compact-city policies are not novel planning innovations in the Australian context. Debates over urban consolidation have been actively raging since the late 1970s (Bounds 2004). In the international context the ambition to actively pursue the creation of more compact cities was given approval by the UN (Habitat 2001). One of the principal impediments to the adoption of urban consolidation in the Australian context was the cultural imperative of detached housing and owner occupation. For many years urban consolidation, or compact city policies were opposed because they were seen as a deterioration in generally accepted housing standards (Troy1996). Some of the arguments raised contended that increased densities brought about reduced amenity, detracted from the virtues of private open space traditionally enjoyed by Australians and resulted in a declining quality of life generally, and in particular for medium density residents. By the late 1980s urban consolidation was the centre piece of most metropolitan strategic plans and in spite of localized resistance, local governments were compelled by state authorities to plan for increasing densities. In the Sydney context this was backed by prescriptions for allocated areas of medium density development. Most importantly this legislation underpinned the right of developers to appeal local government refusal of their development plans. For almost a decade some spectacular resistance had been...
