...Table of Contents Abstract 2 Introduction 3 The Impact Medical Technology has on Religion 6 How Religion Will Respond Given Their Principles and Doctrines 7 The anti-aging therapies are raising controversies in science and religion 12 Conclusion 13 References 14   Abstract People figured out early on that living longer would be beneficial if they had the chance to do so. They would be able to spend more time with their friends and family, have more time in life to accomplish things they set out to do, and they could simply enjoy more of what life has to offer. This is a great mindset for anyone to have since life is a beautiful thing and worth living. With all of the advanced medical technology on this specific subject and the new findings that are constantly being done to prolong the human lifespan, we start to enter into the area of what is ethically right and wrong and wonder how much is too much? There are many different forms of medical treatment that can save someone’s life. This will vary from medicine to surgery and many things in between. Not everyone will agree on some of the techniques used, but most people understand why someone would want to save their life. Since people will try to save their own lives if they are dying, many scientists believe that there is no difference in trying to extend a life through medicine, or trying to create a life from another person through a cloning system. This is where the tables turn from helping mankind,...

Ethical Dilemma

...wrong to hire Amber? Was Amber’s father wrong to ask Mr. Garbo to help out his daughter? Mr. Garbo considered hiring Amber keeping in view the commercial benefits attached with it but from ethical standpoint he was wrong in doing so. We further noticed in the case study that his decision in long run turned out to be more damaging than beneficial for the organization. • Amber was over paid that means extra burden for the company. • Amber realized that the biased decision was made under pressure of maintaining the sales generated due purchases from Mr. Garbo’s organization by her father’s company and this led her to be lazy and commanding in her work. • She started taking longer lunch hours and develop habit of arriving late for work and leave early. Mr. Allen Davis is also to be blamed equally for the situation because the influence used by him was not only ethically wrong but also jeopardize the business relationship between two organizations and also put the career and development of Amber at stake. • Amber started taking work for granted. • Mr. Allen created a wrong example for her that she might practice for rest of her life. • Mr. Allen’s help resulted in her daughter not paying attention and hence not learning from her work and that would eventually result into a career block for her. Q1) Does Amber has any ethical responsibility in this case? If so explain. Amber being an intelligent individual soon realized that she got the job due to his father’s...

...3 Q1. From an Ethical standpoint, was Mr Garbo wrong to hire Amber? Was Amber’s father wrong to ask Mr Garbo to help out his daughter? Ans1. From an HR perspective, both were wrong. First of all, Mr Allen Davis being a responsible person who was positioned as Executive Vice president shouldn’t have utilized his business relation for his own betterment. Secondly, though Mr Garbo was aiming for future retention of his client. He shouldn’t have offered a job to Ms Amber without following regular recruitment process. As a result Mr. Garbo created a none equality among his employees which would lead to non-retention of productive & profitability work force. In short, shortcuts in doing business would not be favourable to any organization Q2. Does Amber have an ethical responsibility in this case? If so, explain. Ans2. As Ms Amber was very well aware about the reason behind her intake. And the intention of Mr Garbo to hire her in a higher pay scale. At least she should have made an attempt to prove herself as a better employee and retain the confidentiality. But in return she had ruined the internal and external relation of both the firms. Due to her unorthodox activities, she had spoiled environmental relationship among employee-employer relationship. And a result of her nature of taking things lightly and irresponsibility in the work would spoil the business and friendship between her Dad and her company.

How Has the Nsa's Surveillance Impacted the Economy?

...How Has the NSA'S Surveillance Impacted the Economy? Southern New Hampshire University English 123: Composition II How Has the NSA'S Surveillance Impacted the Economy? Introduction The Guardian aired a report on the surveillance programs of the National Security Agency over one year ago. The report based on leaked information from one of the agency’s contractors named Edward Snowden. The national opinions from several interested parties concentrates on simplistic debates evaluating the tradeoff between individual privacy and national security. However, it is an important time for the government and other stakeholders to begin weighing the benefits and costs associated with the surveillance more carefully. In spite of the strong defense by intelligence officials in favor of the NSA programs, the officials fail to table any credible evidence in support of the benefits they suggest. In fact, some initial analysis of the programs indicates that the benefits are dubious. It is true that the United States is a target for terrorist and other malicious groups, state officials often use the threat as an excuse to conduct and promote the activities of the National Security Agency. It may be beneficial in the context of security, but the surveillance programs also jeopardize the activities and operations of other organizations and individuals within the United States. The impact of the activities of the NSA on other parties is a cause for an analysis of the economic effects......

Targa is a publically held organization that is in the Upstream and Downstream segment of the Oil & Gas Industry. Targa main processes are fractionation, wholesale and logistics. Targa was formed in 2004 when it purchased two plants from Conoco Phillips. In late 2005 Targa purchased the whole midstream division from Dynegy Inc. With Targa’s purchase of Dynegy Midstream Services, Targa went from a company with 150 employees to over 1500 employees overnight. With this they needed to create a cohesive environment for both of the employees, without having much turnover. During the whole process as Targa met with the Dynegy employees that were part of the sale, they had promised many things ranging from benefits, awards, employee relations and incentives. When the purchase was complete and the Dynegy employees came over to Targa it was realized that all of what Targa’s management had said about the company and what they promised to do was inaccurate. Targa’s management was not impressed with Dynegy employees and treated them as if they had no clue what was going on. My career began at Dynegy in 1999 and I was a part of the sale to Targa.

How Do You Hire?

...How do you hire? This interview of John M. Doe, the chief executive of the McGraw-Hill Companies, was conducted and condensed by Adam Bryant. Q. How do you hire? A. I hire 100% based on fit. Fit with our company, our values, our mission and vision. Fit with our people and culture. But I don’t just ask the candidate about these things. They may have memorized a script, in which case we are both wasting our time. Instead, I ask them about specific situations in which they must have acted in a way that indicates a good fit with us, e.g., tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a superior. How did you act? What did you do to fix the problem? As they answer the question, I am keenly looking for a story that flows well, that makes sense; I am trying to understand their thought process and why they went from A to B to C, and also how they did it. I have learned through the years that by interviewing candidates this way, it really allows them to shed off their mask, so pervasive in corporate America, and come clean. They know I expect nothing but the truth from them, and they know I am dead serious about the interview. As CEO of McGraw, there are a million other things I could be doing, but instead I have the unique privilege and opportunity of interviewing a fresh-faced 22-year old for one of the most junior positions at our company. Please tell me, why do you want to come work for McGraw?...

...PART I – 5 Cases where moving and storage companies were sued for some type of fraud against the Consumer and/or against other Businesses These group of cases represent consumers in lawsuits against moving companies and/or arbitration. Lawsuits against moving companies may include damages to property, breach of contract, tariff or regulatory violations, and hostage loads. * The Attorney General's Office filed a lawsuit against Moving Max in July 2014, alleging they "engaged in a predatory bait and switch scheme," billed customers for "bogus charges," and then "threatened to drive off and retain the customers personal belongings unless and until payment was made by cash or money order." Under the terms of the Final Consent Judgment (entered February 13, 2015), that concluded a lawsuit filed in State Superior Court in Bergen County, the owner of Moving Max, Inc., a moving and storage company based in Fair Lawn, and the owner’s father, are permanently barred from owning or working in such businesses in New Jersey.

Should Companies Monitor Their Employees Social Media

...Should Companies Monitor Their Employees' Social Media? In recent years people have had their lives turned upside down over social media comments, videos, or pictures. Imagine this: A group of friends on vacation and have a good time. They laugh, drink, and take pictures with their cell phones. One of these pictures shows a woman holding a cocktail in each hand and smiling. One of her friends posts this picture on Facebook; her friends share the image. Unfortunately, the woman holding the cocktails in the photo is a schoolteacher. Though her Facebook page is private, she had befriended some of the teachers at her school. When the teacher’s principal finds out about the photos, she is told to resign or face suspension. According to Jeffrey Mello, “Employers face an ethical question relative to whether, as part of due diligence in the hiring process, they should scour online networks and sources to discover information about prospective hires” (168). Reviewing a job applicants’ social media presence may soon become a standard hiring procedure. In the article “Employer Access to Employee Social Media: Applicant Screening, ‘Friend’ Requests and Workplace Investigations”, it mentions a survey of managers and human resource professionals in which over 43 percent of employers used social media sites to research job applicants (Crespo and Lyon 8). It also states that employers’ interest in employees’ social media accounts extended beyond hiring. Many companies seek to leverage......

Describe and Explain How and Why the London Docklands Were in Need of Rebranding

...Describe and explain how and why the London Docklands were in need of rebranding Rebranding is “a change of image through the development of a marketing strategy.” The London Docklands needed rebranding because it in decline and couldn’t get out of the spiral of decay. This was occurring in the 1970s. A major reason why the Docklands were in decline was because of containerisation. This meant that the London Docks and the River Thames were not large enough for the sheer size of the new ships. As the ships couldn’t get into the docks trade and transport were restricted. Furthermore, the export and import opportunity ended up with other areas such as Felixstowe and Tilbury so therefore the Docklands were making massive losses. So since this industry was lost for the Docklands, the spiral of decay began, many people became unemployed. In 1985 there was 7600 people unemployed which was more than the half the population as the population was only 15500 people. This clearly shows how much the Docklands has suffered due to decline because the population in 1900 was 21000. Further factors of why the Docklands needed rebranding was that there were many narrow roads and high levels of congestion meaning that accessibility and transport was poor. Also the high levels of unemployment lead to an increase crime as people didn’t have disposable income. This also meant that poverty levels were at an all-time high above 50%. This further leads to fewer people leaving education with......

An Ethical Dilemma

...Amber Davis had recently graduated from college with a degree in general business. Amber was quite bright, although her grades might lead a person to think otherwise. She had thoroughly enjoyed school—dating, tennis, swimming, and similar stimulating academic events. When she graduated from the university, she had not found a job. Her father was extremely upset when he discovered this, and he took it upon himself to see that Amber became employed. Her father, Allen Davis, was executive vice president of a medium-sized manufacturing firm. One of the people he contacted in seeking employment for Amber was Bill Garbo, the president of another firm in the area. Mr. Davis purchased many of his firm’s supplies from Garbo’s company. After telling Bill his problem, Allen was told to send Amber to Bill’s office for an interview. Amber did as instructed by her father and was surprised that before she left that day she had a job in the accounting department. Amber may have been lazy but she certainly was not stupid. She realized that this job was obtained because of the hope of future business from her father’s company. Although the work was not challenging, it paid better than the other jobs in the accounting department. It did not take long for the employees in the department to discover the reason she had been hired—Amber told them. When a difficult job was assigned to Amber, she normally got one of the other employees to do it, inferring that Mr. Garbo would be pleased with......
