The BP oil rig explosion was the second worst disaster in the U.S history, it resulted in the death of 11 employees and seriously injured 16 others, this resulted in one of the largest oil spills in the history of the world, this resulted in the Gulf of Mexico waters being covered in oil which killed thousands of animal life in the area and had a huge affect on the animal life and the eco system in the area. BP lost billions and the ongoing fight to repair the damage done to the environment is still going on. This is a great example of how operations ethically and unethically can affect a business and the environment around them, this disaster should be learnt from and should never be allowed to happen, BP suffered hugely due to this as their public image was destroyed and their relations with the communities living in the area where the explosion happened were extremely bad.

D1:2 Impacts on BP

BP has paid out due to this disaster up to $5billion to the people who have lost money and have been effected by the oil rig explosion this is not including the money they have lost form the tones of oil that they have lost and also the cleanup operation that they are heading. A disaster like this will have a very long and negative impact on BP as their reputation has been completely destroyed by this disaster and a large amount of the public both investors, customers and just other people in the communities have now pulled away from BP and look at them in an unethical manner due to the disaster. This will affect BP profit levels as they need to continue payouts and their customer base has decreased, BP operations are being checked to ensure nothing like this will happen…...

Ezekiel 37: 1-14

...translation to aid in understanding. Even though every bible is worded different the message stays the same with Ezekiel 37: 1-14. In this passage the prophet Ezekiel is having a vision. God has taken him to a valley full of dried out bones that have been scattered about. This is when God asks Ezekiel if he thinks the bones could live. Ezekiel is smart and answers God by saying that only that he, the lord, could know the answer. God then demonstrates his power by telling Ezekiel to prophesy to the bones. While Ezekiel is prophesying the bones reconnect, form tendons, muscles, skin, and become living people. God then tells Ezekiel that he will restore his people from their grave, and that the land of Israel will once again become his land[1]. The meaning of Ezekiel 37 can sometimes be hard to understand. The scribes who first interpreted the Old Testament took the text literally. They believed that the Old Testament was saying that the bones were those of the dead Israelites, and thought the message was about actual resurrection of the dead[2]. The scribes are most likely wrong, but at the time they had no way of knowing a hundred percent of what the bible was trying to tell you. Today there is still no way of knowing a 100 percent sure of what the bible is telling because of all the different possible interpretations. For example, the very first verse of Ezekiel 37 has many ambiguous words that make it hard to understand. It tells us that “the hand of the lord came upon......

This unit gives learners the opportunity to examine a variety of sources and develop techniques in relation to four aspects of information: data gathering, data storage, and the tools available to create and present useful information. ICT is used in business to carry out much of this work and an appreciation and use of appropriate ICT software is central to completion of this unit. Specifically, learners will use spreadsheets and other software for data analysis and the preparation of information. The use of spreadsheets to manipulate of numbers, and understanding how to apply the results, are seen as more important than the mathematical derivation of formulae used.

...Psalm 37:7-8 ADAM CLARKE'S BIBLE COMMENTARY Verse 7. "Rest in the Lord " - mwd dom, "be silent, be dumb." Do not find fault with thy Maker; he does all things well for others, he will do all things well for thee. "And wait patiently for him " - wl llwjthw vehithcholel lo, and set thyself to expect him; and be determined to expect, or wait for him. Such is the import of a verb in the hithpoel conjugation. "A heathen gives good advice on a similar subject: " - Nil ergo optabunt homines? Si consilium vis, Permittes ipsis expendere Numinibus, quid Conveniat nobis, rebusque sit utile nostris. Nam pro jucundis aptissima quaeque dabunt Di. Carior est illis homo, quam sibi. Juv. Sat. x. 346. "What then remains? Are we deprived of will? Must we not wish, for fear of wishing ill? Receive my counsel, and securely move; Intrust thy pastime to the powers above. Leave them to manage for thee, and to grant What their unerring wisdom sees thee want. In goodness, as in greatness, they excel: Ah, that we loved ourselves but half so well!" DRYDEN.

...There are many things Tesco’s can do to improve their operations ethically. Tesco’s can differ the way they operate, by becoming greener. They should show more keen interest and be environmentally conscious by having green policies, less packaging, recyclable bins for the public to use and charge for bags; encourage people to reuse their bags. Moreover all their stores should have sustainable environmental technology such as solar panels, to reduce the amount of electricity used (saving energy), which will reduce their carbon footprint too. Likewise they can join originations like “Friends of the Earth, Environmentalism and Green Peace” etc. Create more jobs Tax increase to 20% “the government hopes the rise in VAT will raise £13bn a year, but it is predicted to hit retail sales”. Due to this consumers are worried about job losses and how they will be able live their lives with all these cuts. But on the other hand “SUPERMARKETS led the way in announcing tens of thousands of new jobs at a growth summit hosted by Prime Minister David Cameron at 10 Downing Street”. Furthermore “Tesco expects to hire another 9,000 staff, the Co-op 1,000 and Asda 15,000 retail apprenticeships”, which is very ethical. Moreover to be ethical, Tesco’s must deliver and create jobs for “9,000” people as stated. This will help people who are jobless, as well as who have lost their jobs and hopefully “lead to an increase in employment in the next five years”. Paying more to......

A client's financial statements follow GAAP, but you wish to emphasize that the client is a subsidiary of Webster Corporation in the audit report. 3. In auditing the long-term investments account of a new client, you are unable to obtain audited financial statements for the investee located in a foreign country. You conclude that sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding this investment cannot be obtained. 4. Due to a very major lawsuit, you have substantial doubt about a client's ability to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time. The financial statement disclosures related to this lawsuit are adequate. 5. You decide not to take responsibility for the work of the component auditors who audited a 70 percent owned subsidiary and issued an unmodified opinion. The total assets and revenues of the subsidiary are 5 percent and 8 percent, respectively, of the total assets and revenues of the entity being audited. 6.

Question 9-37 Advanced Auditing

...Solution to question 9-37 i) The risks associated with the current method of accounting at Frankincents are as follows: The owner Gaboria Frank relies solely on Norma a part time bookeeper, that works two days a week with minimal or no supervision. The owner trusts the bookkeeper completely and the firm does not encourage control practices such as separate passwords and supervision Norma has developed the systems all by herself and is the only one who understands the nature of the software used. As the business owner, Gaboria should be aware of the systems put in place and should also consult his accountant before the implementations of the systems Only Norma is responsible for the complete accounting function and its activities, such as accounts receivable, disbursements, payroll, etc. There is no segregation of duties, and even though in small firms segregation of duties is not always possible, there is no override of control by the owner, giving the incentive and the opportunity for fraud. Additionally, Norma being a part-time employee may have the incentive and pressure to manipulate and increases the risk for fraud. ii) Being a small business it is not always possible to have segregation of duties and the owner, Gaboria Frank should personally perform operational and clerical activities such as accounts receivable, cash disbursements and payroll. This will give stronger control on activities that have high inherent risk and lower the opportunity and risk of fraud...

The same principles that determine an individual’s actions, it also applies to business.

The business I’ve chosen is Tesco. Tesco faces a protest from the trade union Unite over the treatment of migrant workers in its meat and poultry supply chain at its annual meeting in Glasgow today. Another issue Tesco faced is the horse meat scandal. Tesco said the horsemeat scandal had a "small but discernible impact" on frozen and chilled convenience food sales. Some Tesco Everyday Value Spaghetti Bolognese contains 60% horsemeat, DNA tests by the retailer have found. The meal, withdrawn from sale on Tuesday, came from the French factory producing Findus beef lasagne, also at the centre of a row over horsemeat. Meanwhile, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson has told MPs of plans to test all processed beef in the UK. Tesco Group technical director Tim Smith said: "The frozen Everyday Value Spaghetti Bolognese should contain only Irish beef from our approved suppliers. The source of the horsemeat is still under investigation by the relevant authorities. He also stated that "The...

...Zainab karimu Unit 37 P4 I will be explaining active and passive artificially acquired immunity in form of a table. Immunity is the protection of the body from infections from viruses and bacteria. Acquired immunity is a type of immunity also known as the third line of defence, it is the immunity produced when the human body has been infected by an antigen which triggers the production of antibodies. There are two types of acquired immunity which are active and passive acquired immunity. Active artificially acquired immunity | Passive artificially acquired immunity | Active artificially acquired immunity is induced by a vaccine which is a substance that has antigens, the vaccine stimulates the primary response against the antigen not causing symptoms of the disease. Immunity does not take place immediately, there is a time lapse for immunity to develop. Active artificially acquired immunity lasts for a sufficient long period of time with no side effects.Vaccine doses vary depending on the vaccine, it is either received as a single amount or received as a sequence of three amounts with a break in each amount. | Passive artificially acquired immunity is an immunization induced by the transfer of antibodies into the human body that lasts a short time because the anti-bodies gradually break down and are not replaced. Passive artificially acquired immunity can be controlled in many forms like human or animal blood plasma, intramuscular use, and in form of......

Case 37 Note

...Case #37 Baker Adhesives Synopsis and Objectives Baker Adhesives (Baker) has just made its first foray into international sales and must come to grips with the impact of exchange-rate changes on the profitability of a past order. The company must also formulate a strategy for dealing with exchange-rate risks for future orders. The case is intended as an introduction to exchange-rate risk and the management of that risk. Upon receipt of payment from a past order, the firm realizes that exchange-rate movements have reduced the value of the sale. A follow-on order provides the context for exploring possible mechanisms for managing that risk. In particular, sufficient direction and information is provided to examine both a forward hedge and a money-market hedge. The learning objectives of the case are as follows: • To explore the magnitude and effect of exchange-rate risks. • To illustrate exchange-rate risk management through two conventional hedges—a forward-contract hedge and a money-market hedge. • To demonstrate market parity and identify how preferences arise from unique company characteristics. • To explore issues related to pricing of international bids. Suggested Questions 1. How profitable is the original sale to Novo once the exchange-rate changes are acknowledged? How might the exchange-rate risk, which affected the value of the order, have been managed? 2. Assuming Baker agrees to the new Novo sale, determine the present value of the expected......
