Since we were young, we were taught “not to judge a book by its cover.” Books with sensational topics and attractive graphic designs do not necessarily have valuable content. The same can be applied to how we look at others’ appearance. We all agree that it is morally superficial to judge a person by his clothes; what’s more, the way a person dresses does not really tell you their whole story. However, the clothes we choose to wear are just like the sentences we say: they all convey certain messages about ourselves. Although not conclusive and accurate, we indeed can figure out some general ideas about a person judging from his or her clothing. Take, for instance, the color and decoration of clothes. Different colors usually bring up different feelings, and these feelings somehow coincide with human characters. Bright colors, such as orange and yellow, conjure up images of positiveness. Those who like to wear bright colors are just like what the colors suggest—they are usually liberal person with optimistic and talkative personality. Introverted people, on the other hand, pick the opposite. They tend to wear dimmer colors like dark blue or grey, which convey a sense of rationality and reveal their calm and collected traits. Decorations also give a clue. If somebody prefers putting on gorgeous clothes, he is obviously a person who puts a lot of effort into how they look like; at the same time, he is likely to be vainglorious and have strong desire of showing off himself. The rationale behind this phenomenon is simple: bold thing catches the eye. For the same reason, plain person will conversely avoid dressing showy clothes and pick those that are plain and more practical instead. Another aspect we can look into is how people pursue fashion. Some people blindly follow the trend and ignore their own favors; you can see them wearing the most trendy clothes…...

You Are the Judge Paper # 1

...GBS 205- Mitchell J. Pratt Example: A Judge #1 9/29/12 Elaine, who has been an employee for two months, has sued her employer, Jerry because he has fired her without any reasoning or rationalization. The job offer that Elaine received was a letter that she had been given, which mentioned that her annual salary would be $30,000 and she would receive great opportunities at the company. Although the company that hired Elaine was an at-will-employment business, Jerry decided to fire Elaine after two-months and hire a man in for her position, Kramer, who had less job experience and education then Elaine. Elaine has now sued Jerry for being terminated, she wishes to have her job back and have a steady income and an annual salary. Elaine’s lawsuit has a strong case for sexual discrimination and unlawful business ethics by her employer, ensuring that Elaine, who was given no reason for the termination and after the termination Jerry hired a man, who had less job experience and education, gets her job back. However, there are certain exceptions that favor Elaine for being mistreated and fired so abruptly. The exceptions that I believe will help Elaine in the Lawsuit against Jerry other then sexual discrimination, are as follows; Tort Exceptions, Implied-In-Fact Contracts. Statutory Exceptions, and the Public Policy Exception. Certain issues need to be considered and discussed before beginning this lawsuit to ensure that there is a legitimate case. Some things to consider are; is there...

...lessors, and subcomponent manufacturers may be sued under the doctrine of strict liability in tort” (Cheeseman, pg. 121). Well, Zoom Car Company and Corrigan Rulers Compasses and Slide Rules, Inc. may say that they have done proper inspection and tests before they sold the compass. In this situation, they are still strict liable for Mr. Boone’s injuries. According to our textbook, “A seller can be found strictly liable even though he or she has exercised all possible case in the preparation and sale of his or her product”. For manufacturers, before they sell their products to customers, they need to double or triple checks the products and make sure they are in working condition. If they found problems, they need to immediately recall those products. Thus, if I was the judge, Mr. Boone would win this case based on the doctrine of strict liability in tort. Also, if Mr. Boone wants to, he can also sue Corrigan Rulers Compasses and Slide Rules, Inc. for his injuries. As the defendant, if Zoom Car Company wants to recover its losses and thinks they had not been negligent in this case, they can bring a separate action against the negligent party in the chain of distribution, which is Corrigan Rulers Compasses and Slide Rules, Inc., to recover the strict liability judgment assessed. In my opinion, I think the legal rules applies in this case are fair and reasonable. If both Corrigan Rulers Compasses and Slide Rules, Inc. and Zoom Car Company claim that they did inspection before......

Do You Like My Outfit

...Do you like my outfit? The style of cloths, has been changing a lot over the past decades, and will continue that trend in the future. We have a lot of different styles in our society today. Just to name a few we have the punkers, the emos, the sport types, the fashion type, and so on. I find that the punkers and emos are very much alike. They both wear dark clothes, have dark hair and maybe a bracelet with spikes on it. The sports types often wear a specific shirt, of their favourite sports team and do a lot of sports themselves. The fashion type is always very attentive, about what they wear and how their make-up is done. Dress codes are also something we are very familiar with. A dress code can vary from event to event e. g. at a golf club you must wear a polo shirt with collar, no jeans! but instead chinos, a pullover and golf shoes. And then we have the big formal dinner were you need to wear a suit or tuxedo. Other times there is no dress code, like at a picnic with family and friends, it does not matter what you wear. We also have dress codes at some schools’, in form of school uniforms. In Denmark we do not have school uniforms, and I am glad we have it that way. Some of my friends in the United States have school uniforms and they like it. They think it is very nice to wear the same clothes. That way they cannot be bullied for what they wear. I can see the purpose with it, but I would not like to have school uniforms. I would like to wear want I want and not......

6. Do You Think Companies Can Really Do Without Detailed Job Descriptions? Why or Why Not?

...6. Do you think companies can really do without detailed job descriptions? Why or why not? In one firm – British petroleum’s exploration division- the need for more efficient, flexible, flatter organizations and empowered employees prompted management to replace job descriptions with matrices listing skills and skill levels. Senior managers wanted to shift employees attention from a job description “that’s not my job” mentality to one that would motivate them to obtain the new skills and competencies they needed to accomplish their broader responsibilities. They created skills matrix which listed basic skills needed for that job, minimum level of each skill required for that job or job family. Emphasis is no longer on specific job duties, but on specifying and developing new skills and gave employees constant reminder of what skills they must improve. 1. What is the difference between reliability and validity? In what respects are they similar? Reliability describes the consistency of scores obtained by the same person when retested with the identical or alternate forms of the same test. If a person scores 90 on an intelligence test when retested the result should be the same. Validity indicates whether a test is measuring what it is supposed to be measuring. With employee selection tests, validity often refers to evidence that the test is job related. Reliability and validity are used in statistics and research design. At best, we have a measure that has......

...frequently, and how it is interpreted can determine ones willingness to enter legal action. According to The Legal Environment of Business and Online Commerce, “To bring a lawsuit, a plaintiff must have standing to sue. This means the plaintiff must have some stake in the outcome of the lawsuit (pg 25)”. This means someone must be tied in to the case where the outcome could directly affect him or her. If the standard to sue were to be abolished, it would allow a person(s) to sue anyone, ie. A person or a company, without having any real legal reason, and are most likely just trying to sue for finical gain. Laws are in place to protect people and property. Sometimes when abolished, more harm than good can be done. REFRENCES Cheeseman, Henry R.. The legal environment of business and online commerce: business ethics, E-commerce, regulatory, and international issues. 5th ed. Upper Saddle River, N.J.: Pearson Prentice Hall, 2007. Print. During the course of a trial, witness are brought forward to either help support or to discredit a case. A deposition is a form of testimony that is given orally, and occurs under oath. It can be recorded either by video camera or by a court reporter, prior to a trial. This is considered a way to preserve evidence if a person cannot attended the trial, usually if the person is sick or deceased.

Does this testimony constitute scientific knowledge? No, dowsing is not recognizes to be effective in the scientific community. 2. Should it be admitted under the Frye test? No, this would not be admitted under the Frye test because it has not gained general acceptance in the particular field in which it belongs. 3. Should it be admitted under the Daubert test? No, the judge to allow admittance the court requires the expert to tie there assessment to known scientific conclusions. Explain your reasoning. Dowsing is not recognized in the scientific community, it was the ancient art of finding things, there is no scientific evidence to prove that dowsing is effective. For it to be admitted under Frye it must be sufficiently established and have gained general acceptance under the scientific community. Under the Daubert Standard even though the dowser might have specialized knowledge in dowsing it can not be admitted because it does not contain facts or data that have been proven and accepted in the scientific field. The testimony must be based on reliable principle and methods. It is the role of the trial judge to ensure relevance and reliable scientific evidence to allow the testimony to be admissible.

...employer is an employment at will employer. Elaine was given no reason for the termination. After the termination, Jerry hired a man named Kramer, who had less job experience and education than Elaine, for the position. Elaine has sued to get her job back. The legal issues in the case of Elaine X v. Jerry Employer involve exceptions to the “At Will Employer” doctrine and various types of discrimination and their role in the termination of the plaintiff. There are several questions that must be answered before a ruling can be made in this case. Was the employer within his right to dismiss the plaintiff? Is there sufficient evidence to show the defendant was discriminatory against the plaintiff? The Plaintiff in this case could argue that she is the victim of wrongful termination by her former employer, and because of this she should be reinstated to her former position within the company. While the defendant in this case is an “at will employer,” meaning he can legally discharge an employee at any time for any reason, Elaine could claim that the “contract exception” to the Employment at Will Doctrine applies to her case. This would mean that in this situation there was an “implied-in-fact contract” that was created between the employer and her, at the time of hiring. In the job offer letter Elaine received from the company it stated, “her annual salary would be $30,000” and that she would have, “great career opportunities.” The word “annual” in terms of salary, means......

...defect in manufacture can occur: when a manufacturer fails to properly assemble a product, properly test a product, or adequately check the quality of a product (124). Had the compass been properly tested, the defect in the performance of the compass would have been detected and fixed. Furthermore, even if the product was tested, the quality of the product was not adequately checked to make sure the product does not give faulty results to users in the future. The product was not reliable, and led the user to believe it was taking him to the correct location; due to the product's defect, the user ended up in the dangerous situation that warranted the medical expenses he had incurred. Defendant's Argument: Although the compass installed by Zoom Car Company may not have worked to provide the specific directions that the user was searching for, the compass is not at fault for the user's decision to go into the high crime area. The user has the ability to evaluate a dangerous situation and make decisions thereafter. The compass is only partially at fault when it comes to providing the incorrect directions, but the user is at fault for not using their discretion to evaluate the dangerous situation that they were entering. According to the contributory negligence statute, “a person who is partially responsible for causing his or her own injuries may not recover anything from the manufacturer or seller of a defective product that caused the remainder of the person's injuries” (......

... The most important reason why Wilbur is suing the counseling company and the individual employees is that the company should be responsible for its employee’s actions because this company has a specific policy against violence. If the plaintiff won the case, the counseling company and not the individual employee(Chunk) would be held responsible for the consequences. In addition, the plaintiff can point out the negligence in the hiring process of the company, where despite knowing that Chunk had faced charges of assault in the past, the counseling company chose to overlook such an important aspect and hired him and put a clients life in danger. To what matters worse, Chunk had displayed such outbursts of rage with another client in the counseling company where he had grabbed the client’s arm. The counseling company was aware of this and still chose to let him work after a brief counseling session. The above-mentioned incidents would be very critical in establishing a case against the defendant on the grounds of negligence. While the defendant can put across the argument that they were well aware of Wilbur’s past behavior and that they had taken strict measures to rectify it. They can point out that such outbursts of rage are quite common in such fields, and that their company had a sound recruiting process where the applicants’ background was thoroughly checked and skills were thoroughly assessed. Chunk had not committed a felony, which was why the company deemed it......

... In the case of “You the Judge” The defendant was under the assumption that he was denied a promotion due to actions of his coworker the plaintiff because of an inappropriate screen saver that was sent to his computer. In the defense of the defendant this screensaver was completely inappropriate and the behavior from his coworker was not professional by any means and due to those actions alone she should have been reprimanded or even fired if it could have been proven that she was the one that sent the screensaver. The defendant also stated in his argument that he often participated with other members in the office when they joked around about things that were not work appropriate. The judge’s decision was made very easily due to evidence and the defendant’s testimony. The evidence showed what the employee’s job description was and what is expected of them as employees along with guidelines for any sexual harassment that may been seen or expected. The defendant basically shoot himself in the foot by not reporting any of the incidents that occurred in the workplace. When the initial incident occurred he should have reported the employees and the appropriate actions would have been handled by management. The plaintiff’s testimony was truthful and she even exploited more of the truth than what the defendant initially stated in his testimony. The sexual harassment was done both ways and he made it seem like he was the only victims in this case. The judge ruled in neither of......

The Critique Admission officials consider how you write your essay, not just what you write about. Try to critique your own essays in the same way this sample essay is critiqued below. The Introduction The introduction seems to have a lack of focus: Where's the writer going with this paragraph? Where's the writer going with this essay? Also, the writer needs to tighten the phrasing (e.g., "while halftime occurred" to "at halftime" or "From first sight" to "Immediately"). The Body There is a very abrupt transition from the first paragraph to the second: How did we get from Michigan's diversity to the writer's clubs? The second paragraph also includes general statements with little evidence: How did these activities reveal career paths? Can the writer be more specific? What does "participated in two blood banks" mean? Did he drive volunteers from across town, sign people in all day on three Saturdays every month except August or spend 15 minutes one Thursday afternoon in the nurse's office giving blood? In the third paragraph, we have to ask: What does the writer do at Maas Brothers? "Interact" needs definition. What......
