The roles that the people, products, and profits played in the decisions made regarding the Ford Pinto was very unethical, immoral, and bias when you look at how the decisions were made when it came to the three roles listed above. From the beginning the CEO Mr. Henry Ford should have cared about the safety of the people instead of the product or the profit. I feel that the entire decisions made concerning the out come and the condition of the Ford Pinto was based on what Mr. Henry thought was right and nobody else which was very bias concerning the people that were involved . He knew about the condition and the situation of the Ford Pinto and refused to take the necessary precautions it would have taken to benefit the people and not the product or the profit of the car. I feel that because he was the CEO and had the power to do so, he choose Mr. Iacocca for President ,but for all the wrong reason. He was looking at the story from one side and not all the information that the former president Sermon Knudson knew that was correct and could have saved him a lot of cost in the future which he had to eventually recall over millions of Ford Pintos back that cost him a lot in profits and products. But because of poor ethic skills and a very bias out look on difficult situation sometimes it pays not to try and make a profit on a product when people lives are at…...

Swot Analyisis

...Swot Analysis Swot Analysis I chose to analyze the business plan of American Management Technology a computer hardware reseller business. Although the title describes this company as a computer hardware reseller, they are actually an IT service that has a storefront selling hardware. This company is a corporation with a six owners, one primary owner with the majority of stock, two managing owners, one ex-employee and two silent investors. This business has been doing business for a number of years. The company has shown signs of growth but like many in the Information Technology industry; it has seen a slow decline in profit margins. To combat this American Management Technology has decided to stop competing in the value market and create a quality based service. I evaluated the business plan and based upon the recommended process I assessed the strengths weaknesses opportunities and threats which are as follows. American Management Technology has many strengths. It is a preexisting business with some understanding of what it takes to make it in the information technology business. The business is versatile offering both products and services. Having a quality oriented attitude has never been a bad idea. AMT has a variety of services packages offering different rates for groups who would be able to afford different prices. I think one of the biggest advantages AMT has is a clear understanding of their demographic which will allow them to target sales and save......

Picture Analyisis

...The picture shows an innocent boy who fell victim to a ‘bomb blast’ in Peshawar, Pakistan on the 31st of August 2012. This blast occurred in a busy market near a mosque at around four o’clock in the afternoon. The bomb was located on a pick up truck stationed in a mechanic shop. The blast managed to take the lives of twelve people and injured several others. No one has taken responsibility for the explosion but it is believed that the local militia were involved in some way. In the picture we see the boy is gravely injured, struggling to hold on to his life. His own blood stains his clothes. The boy had been placed on a bed in a local hospital and is being treated and cared for by several persons including a nurse and possibly a doctor. The picture has been framed and cropped to promote the boy as the central figure in the picture. The ‘Vector of Attention’ is towards the boy as all the people around him are positioned in a semi circle facing towards him. The photographer is portraying how the victims of the explosions were the main focus of all the people who were present there. His face is a particularly interesting part of the picture. His eyes are open wide and are blankly fixed towards the ceiling. The only emotion being depicted here is his shock and astonishment at what had just happened to him. He is most probably dazed and has no clue as to what is happening around him. His expression and body language highlight his helplessness in the situation. His limp left......

Analyisis of "Story of an Hour"

...Hillary Brewer Professor Woodard- ENG 102 1/26/13 Kate Chopin’s thesis in “The Story of an Hour” Chopin’s thesis in “The Story of an Hour” was that women in the 1800’s lived in a world of patriarchy and chaos. The 1800’s were a time when women worked at home doing house work and raising children. They had not been given the right to vote or be heard like men had. Chopin wanted to express the struggles of what women went through, through the life of Mrs. Mallard. Mrs. Mallard was given the news of her husband’s death which took a large toll on her being that she had a heart condition. Chopin included the detail of Mrs. Mallard’s heart disease to ensure that the reader understands why she fell to her death at the end of the story: “Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with heart trouble.” Chopin included that, “When the storm of grief had spent itself she went away to her room alone. She would have no one follow her.” This quote was given to us to show that Mrs. Mallard had not wanted anyone to see the emotion she was to express. Mrs. Mallard was soon to see the new spring life growing upon the tree tops. Chopin uses words like, “delicious” and “new” to explain the spring time outside the windows. Chopin also uses “blue” to express the sky in which is seen through Mrs. Mallard’s eyes. These adjectives would seem alarming to the reader due to what had just happened in the recent paragraphs. Mrs. Mallard should be grieving her husband’s death, but instead notices how......

Financial Analyisi

...Liquidity Group Martin Manufacturing should not have a hard time meeting their current financial obligations in the near future. With an improving trend in current ratio over the last three years(1.7, 1.8, 2.49), and a current ratio for the current year of 2.49, which is 66% higher than the industry average of 1.5. This tells me that Martin manufacturing has $2.50 in current assets for every $1.00 it owes in current liabilities. The quick ratio doesn’t really have a trend(1, .9, 1.35) over the last three years, but the current years quick ratio of 1.35 is higher than the industry average of 1.2. The Quick Ratio implies that Martin has $1.35 in current assets excluding inventory for every $1.00 in current bills. Martin will not have to rely on selling their inventory to pay their upcoming obligations. Activity group In the activity group Martin Manufacturing has no trend in the inventory category over the last three years(5.2, 5, 5.29). Their inventory turnover of 5.29 for the current year is bad when compared to an industry average of 10.2, this tells me that Martin may have an inadequate finished goods inventory. The Average Collection period ratio has a bad trend over the last three years (50.7, 55.8, 57.94). The current year’s ratio of 57.94 , which is 26% higher than the industry, is bad in this case. This means it takes Martin basically 58 days before it collects payment from on credit customers and the industry average is 46 days. The total asset......

On the other hand we have Eli who argues too that the nuclear family was essential for the survival of the capitalism system. She also responded to the harmonious functionalist analysis of Fletcher by that the entrepreneurs needed a supply line of workers who would go on to talk jobs, therby, produce goods that could be marketed for profit. Last are the feminists where we have diane feeley ( social feminist and laura purdy ( radical feminist ). Diane developed Lousis’s analyisis the idea that the family transmitted ruling class ideology, she mainly concentrated on how children are taught. She also explained the authorirarian ideology where it explains that next generation was socialized in accepting dominant positions of adults and males and to accept the authority of others. While laura argued that radical feminists have done enormous amount to highlight the evils of domestic violence and pornography, but they missed that thing which restricts women: the pressure to have children. She also talked about familial ideology where she claimed that modern woman was socialized into the belief that the nuclear family was beneficial to her.

...For this proposed scenario I would use just three servers with Windows 2008 R2; a Filing server, an Application server, and a Monitoring & Threat Management server. I feel that Datacenter would be the best option to use as it is more cost efficient and provides reliable support by offering an increased number of processors and increase RAM as well as failover clustering. This also offers key features for power savings, manageability, and helps with allowing workers from remote locations to use and access company resources. The Filing server will allow us to create files able to be accessed by different people from different locations. We will have increased ease of control over access and permission to these files as well as setting up partitions for allocating resources for saved data properly. Server Message Block (also known as SMB) to access the shared folders. This server can also be used for our printers so that we can set up multiple computers to print to specific printers.

Cuban Missile Crisi Analyisis

...Alexandra Roach Dr. Fiddner PLSC World Politics 101 006 October 8, 2015 Cuban Missile Crisis Analysis Due to the Cold War, in October 1962, tensions were high between the United States and the Soviet Union. The Cuban Missile Crisis began on October 14, 1962. This was by far the most significant event to happen in the Cold War. The Soviets had been using Cuba as a place to set their missiles from which they would be able to launch a nuclear attack at any time on almost anywhere in the Southeastern parts of the United States, this including places like Washington D.C., New York City, New Orleans, and other major cities in the United States. Photographers were able to capture pictures of these missiles with high-altitude U-2 spy planes giving evidence that the missiles were 90 miles off the American costal line. Although it seems as if the Cuban Missile Crisis happened at a blinding pace, this crisis actually was a culmination of a much longer process. In this essay I will be focusing on the events that led up to the terrifying 14 day event of the Cuban Missile Crisis as well as looking at the crisis from an individual level of analysis and from a realist point of view. In order to fully understand the Cuban Missile Crisis, we must first take a look at all of the events that had lead up to the crisis. Among many of the factors leading up to the nuclear standoff between the countries, one of the factors, of course, was the genuine concern of defense of each leader,......
