Dear Mr. McNaughten,

Our company values the business relationship we have maintained over the last five years of doing business with you. We have always been satisfied with the products we have received, the price and the excellent service your company has provided. We are a higher end electronics company in Houston that offers our service mostly to the River Oaks area which has recently been compared to areas such as Beverly Hills, California. Though our previous orders have been modest, we are in the process of re-evaluating our purchasing decisions in order to make better use of possible discounts due to ordering larger quantities than we have in the past.

However, the past three shipments that we have received from Transworld Shippers have arrived six to eight days past the promised delivery date, and one carton arrived heavily damaged. I’m sure you agree that in order for my company to continue to thrive in these tough economic times, we have to be able to provide excellent service to our customers much like yourself. We have repeatedly requested Transworld to acknowledge and resolve this issue, but have not received a response. In order to continue doing business with you, we are requesting you step in and resolve the situation.

I’m sure you can appreciate the predicament this issue has placed upon us. We value receiving our materials from your company, and wish to expand our business with you, however we are unable to do so until this issue has been resolved. Please call me if you need any further details, or if you wish to discuss this matter fully.

Our Coast

...“LOVING OUR COASTS TO DEATH” Joel K. Bourne, Jr. July, 2006 National Geographic Loving our coasts to death is a very good title for this article. I say this because that is exactly what we are doing, killing our coasts. This article does a good job in explaining to people how we are killing our coasts, marine life, and eventually ourselves by dumping into the ocean, but this article also shows how people are saving our coasts from further pollution by getting out there and actually doing something that is good for our environment. This article is very interesting because of the fact that it brings in the perspective of ordinary people and what they do to help as well as the perspective of scientists and what they do to help. This is a very important subject to learn more about because if we do not stop dumping into the ocean than we will end up killing our oceans and ourselves. This article is also important because we can learn from the people that are trying to save our coasts. Loving our coasts to death is mostly about how certain people are trying to save our coasts from pollution in ways large or small, it also talks about how bad we are polluting our ocean’s coastlines and how that pollution can affect us. More and more people are moving to coastal counties, which means more pollution in and around that area and this article is trying open our eyes and tell us that polluting our coasts is threatening human health, marine resources, and putting our......

Gulf War

...ANALYSIS OF GULF WAR II-LESSONS FOR THE INDIAN ARMED FORCES INTRODUCTION 1. From time immemorial the land known today as Iraq has been the scene of conflict. Iraq has been, not only a strategic highway linking the Eastern Mediterranean lands with those of the Orient, but also the scene of frequent clashes between empires and great powers. It has seldom been the master of its own destiny, and in the numerous conflicts that stud its history, it has more often than not, been a pawn or the prize of other powers seeking regional hegemony. Until the beginning of twentieth century, most conflicts in the region were imperialistic in nature and involved Iraq because of its strategic important position. However, the discovery of vast oil deposits in the region in 1907 added another element to the equation, and conflicts, since have sprung from imperialistic motives as well as from a desire to protect or control sources of much of the world’s most important strategic resource. 2. Iran-Iraq war and the misadventure in Kuwait bear testimony to the misuse of power by Saddam Hussein. Saddam had always been labeled by the West as a producer of weapons of mass destruction. Ultimately a stage had reached where US and UK convinced themselves that Saddam was stockpiling these weapons. They demanded a change of regime and when threats were not taken seriously by Saddam, they launched Operation Iraqi Freedom or Gulf War II, despite all the opposition the world over, to attack and......

Gulf Air

..."Gulf air" Introduction: In a world of globalization, speed and technology where everyone is seeking for ways to accomplish their duties easily, and where countries have been connected with each others by economical, commercial, and political affairs, airlines companies appeared as an integral part of the channel of transportation in different countries of the world which have been recently one of the most important ways to carry passengers and goods from a place to other distant places. Among those companies the Gulf Air Company was established in 1950, and since that time it has gone through many stages and conditions, until it reached within these years to a level of the need of restructuring; because of the sequence losses it has faced. As a company that owns the largest aviation network in the Middle East and as it carries a history of about sixty years, it is significant to figure out the main factors that lead it to reach to a loss that is equivalent to BD 190 million in only 2009. This loss is substantial and definitely has negative consequences on the entire Bahraini economy, since the Gulf Air is known as one of the most important ventures that provide employment for significant number of Bahraini population, and therefore have an effect on the Bahraini GDP. Hence things should be analyzed and problems have to be diagnosed in order to find out some hinders and drawbacks, and list some strengths and advantages to reach at the end to general beneficial conclusion...

Gulf Oil Spill

...GULF OIL SPILL On April 20, 2010, we can all remember the vivid images when the news reported an explosion of an oil rig that killed 11 workers. The company responsible was British Petroleum, which owned the Deepwater Horizon drilling unit. The event was in the news continually, because it was regarded as the worst environmental disaster in the history of the United States. It took 85 days to cap the well. This catastrophe killed wildlife and threatened the livelihoods of fishermen, restaurants, and oil industry workers resulting in massive job losses. According to Wikipedia, an oil spill is the release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the environment, especially marine areas, due to human activity, and is a form of pollution. Oil spills may be due to releases of crude oil from tankers, offshore platforms, drilling rigs, and wells. Although oil spills can be controlled by chemical dispersion and/or absorption, this is not something easily to recover from. Spills may take weeks, months or even years to clean up. The cost of the oil spill clean-up is reported to be in the billions of dollars. BP had workers on the doomed Deepwater Horizon rig that could have prevented the missteps that led to the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill according to the White House oil spill commission. The crew onboard the rig misread the pressure test and decided to move ahead which resulted in the rig exploding. What caused the oil spill to happen on the deep water......

Gulfs Progress Fact

...Gulf of Mexico Progress of We have made significant progress cleaning the Gulf Restoration shoreline and supporting economic and environmental restoration efforts in the Gulf. We have spent Efforts approximately $26 billion in claims payments and response, clean-up, and restoration costs. No company has done more to respond to an industrial accident. And, based on information from third-party sources, the Gulf is undergoing a robust recovery. Tourism records set in 2011 were broken again in 2012 as visitors from across the country and around the world flocked to the Gulf region; commercial and recreational fishing landings continue to out-pace pre-spill levels; and the environment is returning to its baseline condition. Economic Restoration Efforts BP is supporting economic recovery efforts along the Gulf Coast by paying legitimate claims and supporting two of the region’s most vital industries – tourism and seafood. We have also reached settlement agreements with the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee to resolve the substantial majority of legitimate private economic loss, property damage and medical claims. Compensating the People and Communities Affected As of Dec. 31, 2013, BP had paid approximately $12.8 billion in claims, advances, settlements and other payments. This includes approximately $11 billion for individual and business claims; $1.5 billion for government claims, advances and settlements; and $329 million for other payments such as tourism promotion, seafood...

The Lingering Effects of the Bp Oil Spill on the Gulf Coast

...The Lingering Effects of the BP Oil Spill The rest of the world has long forgotten the disaster that tore through the states along the Gulf of Mexico. Its lingering effects can still be felt three years later. The Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, otherwise known as the BP oil spill, has left the states of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana in recovery mode. The oil spill not only affected the ecology of these states, but also the economy. This tragic disaster claimed the lives of eleven men. It also disrupted the way of life for the numerous people employed by the seafood industry, and its consumers. The shrimping industry located in these states in the year 2006 accounted for “83% of the total US shrimp landings”, according to John Tunnell (2011). Based on the results of the survey I conducted in Biloxi, MS, along with research I have done, I have found that locally both consumers and businesses are more willing to support the local shrimp industry than they are to purchase imported shrimp. However, on a global scale consumers are still wary of eating shrimp caught anywhere on or near the Gulf Coast. The people residing on the Gulf Coast of the United States of America are a resilient group. They have endured three consecutive extraordinary catastrophes: Hurricane Katrina, the BP Oil Spill, and the Mississippi River Floods, and still somehow have continued to strive and continue their way of life. However, the shrimp industry took a huge hit after the......

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

...Crisis Panel BP Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill British Petroleum is a multinational company headquartered in London, United Kingdom. BP dedicates to find, extract, transport, and commercialize oil and gas. BP is the fourth largest global energy company in the world and it is the largest producer of oil and gas in the United States with headquarters in Houston Texas. Since BP started operating in United States has been involved in many environmental and safety scandals. The most recent incident is the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico near the Louisiana coast. It is the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry and it has created a huge damage in the environment. In the morning of April 20, 2010 the Deepwater Horizon exploded; there were 126 members on the platform when fire engulfed the platform, although most of the workers escaped the rig by lifeboat and were subsequently evacuated by boat or airlifted by helicopter for medical treatment; however, eleven workers were never found despite a three-day Coast Guard search operation, and are presumed to have died in the explosion. The fire on the platform lasted for 36 hours and ended by the Deepwater Horizon sank. Two days later after the explosion a large oil slick was discovered at the former side of the platform, it was confirmed that a damaged wellhead was leaking. BP estimated the worst case flow at 162,000 barrels per day. Initial estimates by Coast Guard and BP......

Gulf Coast Hospital

...Gulf Coast Hospital Eva Michelle Carlin HCS/533 October 20, 2014 Dr. Kevin Lett Gulf Coast Hospital The Gulf Coast Hospital, a 350-bed facility, is located in New Orleans, Louisiana along the Gulf coast. The Gulf coast has been hit with numerous hurricanes and tropical storms and in 2005 Katrina hit land. Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest and most destructive Atlantic tropical cyclone of the 2005 season and made her way onto the shores of the Gulf coast on the morning of Monday, August 29, in southeast Louisiana. The storm surge was the cause of much of the destruction. The levee system catastrophically filed resulting in major flooding and destroyed the patients files stored in the basement of the hospital. It is managements plans to keep patients records secure by implementing new policies and procedures for responding to an emergency that has the potential of damaging systems that contain electronic protected health information by scanning paper medical records into the computer, establishing procedures for creating and maintaining backups of any electronic protected health information, (backups that are exact copies and retrievable at any time, but also kept secure from unauthorized access) and storing the backups off site. In 2000 Gulf Coast Hospital started moving the paper files to the EMR and started staff training on the use of EMR. Part of the job as administrator of a hospital in hurricane prone areas is to train the staff for the future......

Did Bp's Ethical Culture Contribute to Gulf Coast Oil Spill Disaster?

...1. What aspects of BP’s ethical culture could have contributed to the Gulf Coast oil spill disaster? BP’s ethical culture did contribute to the Gulf Coast oil spill disaster which occurred on April 20th, 2010 resulting from an explosion which killed eleven (11) employees. This disaster created an environmental catastrophe as millions of gallons of crude oil were sent into the Gulf of Mexico, wreaking havoc on the livelihoods of fishermen and others who depended on the Gulf for income. The aspects of BP’s ethical culture that contributed to the Gulf Coast oil spill are: BP did not have in place adequate safety measures. The rig did not have a remote control cut off switch. A BP official falsely informed Fox News after the incident that BP had successfully activated part of a failed blowout preventer, which was slowing the oil flow. This announcement turned out to be false as BP’s underwater robot did in fact trigger a device, but the device did not stop the flow of oil. While the remote controlled cut out switch was not required by law as long as the Rig had a backup control system, BP could have ensured that some sort of emergency shut off system was in place. BP cut corners to save time and money while not providing sufficient oversight. Seventy five percent of incidents that caused Federal investigations into safety on deep sea drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico were on Transocean drilling rigs and BP were their biggest client. Therefore it was BP’s......

Coast to Coast Killer

...The Coast to Coast Killer BOOK ONE Chapter Four “You feel like shooting some hoops?” Said Officer Thompson to Detective Carpenter as he was pretending to shoot a jumpshot from his seat in front of the detectives desk. “I think we need to take a little break.” “You know, tired minds don’t think to well.” He continued. As he was now tucking in his shirt upon rising from his chair. Officer Thompson was a pretty good former N.B.A. reserve player. Having played for the Philadelphia 76ers before injuring his knee in his rookie season. Second team All-American out of Temple University. 6-6 and only 28. He was still a formidable opponent between the blocks. And nobody wanted to play H.O.R.S.E with him either. Hardly anybody could match his dunks. “Yea.” “Maybe you’re right.” “Not for too long though.” “This fucker ain’t resting to much so we can’t afford to either.” Responded the detective. He was tapping on the desk with his pencil while looking at the list of victims. They had been in the office since early this morning working on the case and had been going over several stacks of paper concerning the victims and all of the new data seemed to be a bit over whelming by now. At this point, they were yet unawares of the latest victim, the girl in Florida had not yet been found. Charlie had pulled her into the bushes and covered her up with a stack of delivery pallets he had found nearby. “I keep thinking about number 29.” Said the detective. “You mean the pizza delivery......
