1)
400 units needed per month

W1: delivery once a week, $832, transit time of 2 days; unit cost=$832*4=$3328/400units=$8.32/unit (origin)
W2: delivery every other week, $932, transit time of 1 day; unit cost=$932*2=1864/400units=$4.66/unit (destination)

T1: delivery once per week, $689, transit time of 5 days; unit cost=$689*4=2756/400units=$6.89/unit (destination)
T2: delivery twice a week, $669, transit time of 2 days; unit cost=$669*8=5352/400units=$13.38/unit (origin)

2) The delivery costs vary among each option due to the number of times per month that shipments are delivered. The freight cost per delivery is set and that number is then multiplied by the number of deliveries per month. This number is then divided by 400, the required number of units per month to determine the delivery cost per unit.

3) Demand is already set at 400 units per month. This means they may as well go with the most cost-efficient option. W2 and T1

4) W2: FOB destination, freight collect: If you tell the shipper that you will pay the cost when it arrives, then they will ship it "freight collect", meaning the trucking company will need a check payable to them when they deliver your item. If you have an account with a certain trucking company, then you can request that the shipper use that company so that you may be billed. It will still be "Freight Collect", but will be automatically billed to you by the company that you use.

Exxon Valdez and Prince William Sound Case

...Exxon Valdez and Prince William Sound Case Keller Graduate School of Management – Online AC573 Anthony Mucheru Instructor – Frank Pidgeon November 2011 Shortly after midnight on March 24, 1989, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground on Bligh Reef in Alaska’s Prince William Sound, spilling 11 million gallons of crude oil. At the time of the grounding, the vessel had departed from normal shipping lanes to avoid ice in the water and had failed to make a corrective turn in time to avoid the submerged reef. The ship was piloted by third mate Gregory Cousins, who did not hold a required license; the captain, Joseph Hazelwood, was in his quarters. Hazelwood, whose driver’s license was at the time suspended for driving while intoxicated, later failed a sobriety test. At the time, the pipeline was opened and strict traffic lanes were established in the Sound to guarantee safe tanker passage. But, in recent years, disintegration of the Columbia Glacier had filled the lanes with ice. To avoid slowing down to dodge icebergs—thereby delaying the oil’s delivery to market—tanker captains routinely moved out of the shipping lanes (Brooks, L. J., 2010 p. 505). On shore, no one was keeping watch. Although the Coast Guard was charged with monitoring vessels through Prince William Sound, in fact, its outdated radar system did not reliably track vessels as far out as Bligh Reef. An earlier proposal to upgrade the radar system had been rejected as too expensive. And the Coast Guard’s...

Supreme Court Case

...Supreme Court Case Jamie Wallace CJA/354 August 5, 2012 Graham Quisenberry The Supreme Court case I chose for my assignment is titled “Supreme Court mostly rejects Arizona immigration law; gov says ‘heart’ remains.” Immigration is a controversial area for society and the law in United States, even more so after the terrorist attacks in 2001. The state of Arizona in April 2010 implemented laws that would crack down on immigration violators to protect the citizens of Arizona and the citizens of the United States. The summary of what this article covers is the U.S. Supreme court struck down key portions of a law that was enacted by the state of Arizona in April 2010. According to the Cohen (2012) website Arizona sought to deter illegal immigration that allows a provision to check a person’s immigration status while still enforcing other laws. The ruling behind the Supreme Court’s decision is that the federal government has the power that can block any law and all of Arizona’s authority figures must comply with the federal law when conducting any immigration status checks or they may face challenges considered to be unconstitutional. What interested me the most about the article is the controversy that surrounds this subject. Racial profiling is a controversial subject that brings much debate with it. When one looks at the law and what law enforcement officers do as part of their duty, at times there is racial profiling that will take...

Supreme Court Case

...Supporters of affirmative action fear that the Supreme Court could curtail or further restrict the use of race-conscious admissions policies at public universities. On Wednesday, all eyes will be on Justice Anthony Kennedy, whose vote is considered pivotal in the case brought by a white Texan who has sued the University of Texas at Austin, claiming that she was denied admission to the school in 2008 because of her race. Abigail Fisher, who has since graduated from Louisiana State University, said she was subject to unequal treatment in violation of the 14th Amendment. "I was taught from the time I was a little girl that any kind of discrimination was wrong, and for an institution of higher learning to act this way makes no sense to me," Fisher said in an interview clip posted on the website of the Project on Fair Representation, a legal defense foundation that's providing her with legal representation. On the other side are lawyers for the University of Texas, who argue that, like many other universities, UT seeks to assemble a class that is diverse in innumerable ways -- including race -- and that "race is just one of many characteristics that form the mosaic presented by an applicant's file." More than 90 friend of the court briefs have been filed in the case, with the Obama administration weighing in favor of the university. Others, who support Fisher, argue that diversity can be achieved through race-neutral programs, and that race-preferential admissions policies...

Effective Study Skills Foundation to Sound Education

...Portfolio Task: Module 1 (Word count 500 words) Study the following phrase and then write a properly referenced academic essay to discuss it. “Effective Study Skills are the Sole Foundation of a Sound Education” Research shows that effective study skills are the sole foundation to a sound education. Study Skills defined as ‘study strategies are approaches applied to learning. They are generally critical to success in school, and considered essential for acquiring good grades, and useful for learning throughout one's life.’ (www.wikipedia.org 10 Sept 2012) Research by Peter Honey and Alan Mumford suggest there are four categories of learners; Activist, Pragmatist, Theorist, and Reflector. Each individual learns things in different ways, so not all study skills will be effective for all learners. You have the Pragmatist learner who tends to learn more efficiently by carrying out practical tasks. So sitting down and reading information will not be most effective for them. This is not to say an individual cannot develop their learning style so other types of study skills can start to work for them. Cottrell suggests that ‘if you don’t do so already, start to read the quality newspapers. Jot down key points for one thing you read.’ (Cottrell, 2008) The person who is referred to as a Reflector tends to learn best by watching others and are given time to reflect and think about what they have learnt. This kind of learner would usually not excel from being put in...

U.S. Supreme Court Case

...U.S. Supreme Court Case CJA/354 Criminal Law The Supreme Court of the United States is the Nation’s highest court, and was established on 4, March 1789; the court is made up of a Chief Justice and five Associated Justices. From the time the United States established the Supreme Court there has been 112 Justices of the court, including 17 Chief Justices ("United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary ", n.d.). Over the years the United States Supreme Court has heard cases brought on by one state against another, between state and federal government known as “original jurisdiction” actions, cases from state courts, and cases brought up of reviewable decisions made in federal appellate or district courts ("Supreme Court Historical Society ", n.d.). The case being used for this paper has two separate cases involved, but I will only be using one as a reference. The two cases in which were brought to the United States Supreme Court together are very similar and involve teens being given life sentences without the possibility of parole for committing murder. The United States Supreme Courts case number is 10-9646, Miller v. Alabama. This case was brought to the United States Supreme Court on 20, March 2012, involving two fourteen year old boys, whom were found guilty of murder in two separate cases, and also from two separate states, one being Alabama and the other being that of Arkansas. With in each of these cases one of the boys did the killing...

Case Briefs of U.S Supreme Court Cases Introductory

...Thomas v. Winchester (1852) Facts: Mrs. Thomas was prescribed dandelion extract, but the bottle was mislabeled and actually contained a poison. Mrs. Thomas's husband had purchased the extract from druggist Ford who purchased from druggist Aspinwall who purchased from Winchester. Thomas sued Winchester and the trial court ruled in Thomas’s favor. Winchester appealed, stating that because he was not the direct vendor of the item and there was no direct connection between he and Thomas, Thomas could not sue him. Issue: Despite there being no direct connection between Thomas and Winchester, can Thomas sue Winchester Decision: Yes Reasons: The Court decided to make an exception to the theory of privity, based on Winterbottom v. Wright, in this case because of the inherent danger of poison, and death or great bodily harm was the natural result of the mislabeling of poison. Winchester had a duty to Thomas because it was the nature of his business that there would be a lack of privity if poison was mislabeled. Sub brief: Winterbottom v. Wright (1842) Facts: Wright owned a coach business and contracted with the Postmaster-General to supply coaches to carry the mail. As part of the contract, Wright agreed to keep the coaches in good condition and personally assume the duty of all maintenance and repairs. Atkinson also contracted with the Postmaster to supply horses and drivers for all coaches. Winterbottom, the plaintiff, was employed by Atkinson as a driver. One day, he was...

He sat in a “whites only” car and refused to sit in the black car even though he could pass for a white man. Plessy was subsequently arrested and jailed for violating the 1890 Separate Car Act. He was convicted and sentences to pay a $25 fine. The ruling was upheld by the Supreme Court based on the 14th amendment, seeing no way in which the Louisiana statue violated it. The Plessy decision set the precedent that “separate” facilities for blacks and whites were constituional as long as they were ”equal”. Brown v Board of Education, the plaintiff Brown assessed that this system of racial separation of black and white Americans provided inferior accommodations, services, and treatments of black students. Thirteen parents of 20 children of Topeka, Kansas sued the school district to reverse its policy on racial segregation. Brown v Board of Education was a landmark US Supreme Court case in which the court declared the state laws established separate public schools for black and white students was unconstiutional on May 17, 1954. This decision also overturned the Plessy v Ferguson decision of 1896. These verdicts are relevant today because segregation isn’t an issue in this day and age as well as school is no longer......

Case Study: Ge Healthcare in India: an (Ultra) Sound Strategy?

...Case Study: GE Healthcare In India: An (Ultra) Sound Strategy? What are the basic facts? GE Healthcare India, a joint venture between General Electric (GE) and the Indian multinational Wipro Ltd., had ended the 2005-2006 year with a significant rise in sales of 10% since last year. They were the market leader in the $77 million ultrasound machine market, beating its competitors, which included Siemens, Toshiba and Philips. The president and CEO of GE Healthcare India, V. Raja read the newspaper headlines which described how government officials in Hyderabad had been confiscating ultrasound machines that they suspected were being used illegally to determine the sex of unborn children. The article featured a poster for GE ultrasound machines, a police officer wrapping up an ultrasound machine and a pregnant belly (Wicks, 2014). As a result of these news articles, 102 clinics had their registrations suspended, police seized 112 ultrasound machines and three suppliers, including Wipro GE Healthcare had been accused of supplying machines to clinics without registering them with the government. This controversy could affect GE Healthcare India’s sales for the next fiscal year and its reputation. What are the ethical issues? The 2001 Indian census revealed that there were 927 girls to every 1000 boys, down from 945:1000 in 1991 and 962:1000 in 1981. By 2001, 14 districts had a ratio of less than 800:1000.

Evaluation of Supreme Court Case

... stayed the execution to give time for a mental evaluation. He also filed 10 other motions asking for a hearing on his competency, as well as, funding for his own mental health experts. The judge in this case found Panetti competent and closed the case and did not rule at all on the 10 motions Panetti filed. Panetti filed again with the Federal District Court in order to receive rulings on the pending petitions. At this time the District court did find the state court to have been unfair and in violation of Texas law, as well as constitutional law for not following requirements according to the law’s procedures. However, this court found Panetti did not meet the standards for incompetency required by law to avoid execution. This court affirmed and certiorari was granted. The U.S. Supreme court reversed the judgement of the Fifth circuit Court of Appeals and remanded the case for further evaluation and consideration (Panetti v Quarterman, 2007). Arguments The original trial, in which Panetti (the plaintiff) represented himself, his argument was he not be convicted due to reason of insanity. The State argued he was in fact competent at the time of the crime therefore should be convicted and sentenced to death. The jury, fearing the behavior they saw exhibited by the plaintiff during trial, sentenced him to death. Several appeals were filed following his conviction seeking writ of habeas which were denied by the District Court and the Fifth circuit court. At this time......

Supreme Court Case Study

...Civil Rights and Liberties Supreme Court Case 2 Douglas Ganim Thursday, November 5, 2015 VOTE: 5-4 in favor of Sally Spyalot, Director of National Security Agency JUSTICE ALITO delivered the opinion of the court Shortly after September 11, 2001, at the request of the National Security Agency, several of the major phone companies were asked to provide phone records for all calls made within the United States, and all calls made to the United States from other countries. The data the NSA received, provided information on the phone number the call was made to and from, the call’s duration, the date of the call, and the time of day. No Financial data, nor content of the calls, were ever obtained by NSA. This action proceeded without a warrant for any of the information provided. In addition, there was no individual suspicion since this was considered “meta-data” or “bulk data collection” of phone records. The vast majority of the data was analyzed by computer programs and never looked at by NSA personnel. Before we delve into an analysis of the court’s decision in this case, it is prudent we first address an important point. Prior to the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, few American’s contemplated a threat to homeland security. Today, the fear of terrorism is ingrained in our daily thoughts. Following the events of 9/11, American’s sense of safety nearly vanished, and the direction, and scope of national security were forever changed. The National Security...

... for their problems, rather than capitalism. * The law, crime and criminals also perform an ideological function for capitalism. Laws are occasionally passed that appear to be for the benefit of the working class rather than capitalism, such as workplace health and safety laws. * Pearce (1976) argues that such laws often benefit the ruling class too. E.g. by keeping workers fit for work. By giving capitalism a ‘caring’ face, such laws also create false consciousness among the workers. In any case, such laws are not rigorously enforced. Evaluation of traditional Marxist theories and explanations of crime Strengths * It offers a useful explanation of the relationship between crime and capitalist society. * It shows the link between law making and enforcement and the interests of the capitalist class (by doing so it also puts into a wider structural context the insights of labelling theory regarding the selective enforcement of the law). * It casts doubt on the validity of official statistics on crime. Official statistics are of little use if they simply reflect a policy of selective law enforcement and ruling class control. * Marxists also offer a solution to crime. By replacing capitalist society with an egalitarian Communist society, the root cause of crime would be removed. * It has also influenced recent approaches to the study of the crimes of the powerful. Weakneses * Not all laws, however, are so clearly in ruling class...
