...seriously affect my mood to enjoy food. 6. The Siri function of iPhone somewhat bothers me. When I move my backpack or lean on it, other things in my backpack can push the home button and activate Siri. Then, the Siri voice function said that “what can I help you?” when I was in class. This also happened to other students as well, which was embarrassing. 7. There is always a certain amount of hand soap left in the bottom of the bottles, as the soap is not enough to be pumped out. I do not like to waste it. Thus, I have to add a little water to dilute the hand soap and to use up the left, which was very inconvenient. 8.

...Corporation are the three ways a business is organized. In this report the one will get an overview of which business organization would be the right fit to ensure business success. All Four One, One Does None A product to put an end to all products, a product that any inventor would love to put on the shelves of as many stores as possible and immediately begin raking in the cash; just a dream I believe all inventors imagine. Too bad it’s not that simple. Making the decision of business organization is the beginning process. Which direction do I go in? Sole Proprietorship, Partnership or Corporation? Every organization has its advantages and disadvantages. When considering the Sole Proprietorship, I think about the positive aspects of it. Sole Proprietorship allows me to have complete control over my product and or business. It also gives me the opportunity to sale or transfer my product or business at my own choosing. On top of that, if deciding to form a Sole Proprietorship, I would encounter lesser cost when it comes to the legal aspect. With all advantages there come disadvantages. While thinking if Sole Proprietorship is the way to go, I have to consider the major fact that if I decide on this particular business organization every decision and responsibility including finances fall solely on me. Partnership is also a choice that allows me the advantages of funding, which is huge. Having a partnership makes funding to get my business or product......

...2014) | Michigan’s Right to Work | Looking at Taft-Hartley and Landrum-Griffin as legal precedent, what relevance do they have to the MI situation? How did the Governor use them, if at all? (No more than 400 words). | Edwina Howard-Agu2-27-2014 | Taft Hartley and Landrum-Griffin Acts as legal precedent was relevant to the decision made by Governor Rick Snyder and his legislative body that supported his platform to make Right to Work a reality in Michigan in December 2012. The Legislature passed the bills and Governor Snyder signed them, he was within his legal authority to make such a decision based on the Taft Hartley and Landrum-Griffin Acts. The Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA) also known as the Landrum-Griffin Act deals with the relationship between a union and its members. The LMRDA grants certain rights to union members and protects their interests by promoting democratic procedures within labor organizations. The Act establishes a Bill of Rights for union members; reporting requirements for labor organizations, union officers and employees, employers, labor-relations consultants, and surety companies; standards for the regular election of union officers; and safeguards for protecting labor organization funds and assets (www.nlrb.gov/who-we-are/our-history/1959-landrum-griffin-act).

Right to Work

...Right to work (RTW) is one of the controversial topics in the history of American labour legislation, which was commenced by the Taft-Hartley act of 1947. Supporters of RTW laws believe worker's freedom is ensured through this legislation, on the other hand opponents of this law believe they are fighting for the lifeblood movement of labour union (Kovach, 1977). Till to date, 23 states of U.S. have adopted RTW laws, whereas other state's legislature (i.e Ohio, Michugan and New Hampshire) debate on this law (Collins, 2012). Since RTW has created different opinion among different people, researches have been conducted widely to find out differences from numerous perspectives (ie. social, economic, employment etc.) among RTW states and union security states. However, research result is inconclusive, since one can gain limited knowledge on the probable insights that a RTW and non-RTW state may provide(Collins, 2012). For a long period of time, anti-union members are applauding RTW laws by claiming this law is providing freedom of choice to the workers, whether they want to join a union voluntarily. In contrast, I find a hidden motive behind this legislation; that is- employers gain the most from RTW laws. Therefore, in this report focus will be given to analyze how employers are gaining the most from this law by depriving the workers. First of all, in a RTW state employers get advantage in getting works done at owner's terms, since workers cannot raise their voice to oppose......

...Islam and Human Rights Course Islam and Terrorism April 2016 Introduction: Terrorism has become one of the outstanding features that marked the twenty-first century, as its acts and threats have been in existence for millennia, and because it acts as a real danger facing the human existence. Terrorists have widened their activities and increased their practices in many regions of the world in recent times, such as Turkey, France and Belgium. Terrorist groups have used violence as a mean to achieve their goals and they did not adhere to any religious principles or moral, and they have showed us how they have used advanced weapons and equipment’s in their attacks. The core principle of terrorists is that the aims justify the means, which carries with it the destruction of human civilizations. Muslims are being exposed by campaigns of slander and distortion, waged by western countries, politicians and media, and these campaigns have seen an increase of ferocity after the emergence of the (ISIS) terrorist group in the Arab countries, and specially after the terrorist attacks on some Western countries. Some Arab and Islamic countries participated in awareness campaigns about the thought of the new emerged terrorist group (ISIS) extremist on the Islamic religion, but violence and extremism is no longer mentioned in Western countries, but they became attributed to Muslims, Arabs. Extremism and terrorism has become Islamist, and all this is linked to Islamist......

...| Definition of 'Systematic Risk'The risk inherent to the entire market or an entire market segment. Systematic risk, also known as “undiversifiable risk,” “volatility” or “market risk,” affects the overall market, not just a particular stock or industry. This type of risk is both unpredictable and impossible to completely avoid. It cannot be mitigated through diversification, only through hedging or by using the right asset allocation strategy. | | Investopedia explains 'Systematic Risk'For example, putting some assets in bonds and other assets in stocks can mitigate systematic risk because an interest rate shift that makes bonds less valuable will tend to make stocks more valuable, and vice versa, thus limiting the overall change in the portfolio’s value from systematic changes. Interest rate changes, inflation, recessions and wars all represent sources of systematic risk because they affect the entire market. Systematic risk underlies all other investment risks. The Great Recession provides a prime example of systematic risk. Anyone who was invested in the market in 2008 saw the values of their investments change because of this market-wide economic event, regardless of what types of securities they held. The Great Recession affected different asset classes in different ways, however, so investors with broader asset allocations were impacted less than those who held nothing but stocks. If you want to know how much systematic risk a particular security, fund or......

...the cost of that capital; see Corporate finance: working capital management. This amount can be determined by making adjustments to GAAP accounting. There are potentially over 160 adjustments that could be made but in practice only five or seven key ones are made, depending on the company and the industry it competes in. NOPAT is profits derived from a company’s operations after cash taxes but before financing costs and non-cash bookkeeping entries. It is the total pool of profits available to provide a cash return to those who provide capital to the firm. Capital is the amount of cash invested in the business, net of depreciation. It can be calculated as the sum of interest-bearing debt and equity or as the sum of net assets less non-interest-bearing current liabilities (NIBCLs). The capital charge is the cash flow required to compensate investors for the riskiness of the business given the amount of economic capital invested. The cost of capital is the minimum rate of return on capital required to compensate investors (debt and equity) for bearing risk, their opportunity cost. Another perspective on EVA can be gained by looking at a firm’s return on net assets (RONA). RONA is a ratio that is calculated by dividing a firm’s NOPAT by the amount of capital it employs (RONA = NOPAT/Capital) after making the necessary adjustments of the data reported by a conventional financial accounting system. EVA = (RONA – required minimum return) × net investments. If RONA is above the......
