I Just Want to Make Lamps

1. Julie can make a national origin claim under the protected classes of Title VII. Jeremy, the hiring manager, made statements about the company suffering because of her husband’s Cuban disease. Under the basis of national origin, it’s illegal to discriminate against an individual because of birthplace, ancestry, culture, or linguistic characteristics common to a specific ethnic group. In addition, national origin discrimination also can involve treating people unfavorably because they are married to (or associated with) a person of a certain national origin or because of their connection with an ethnic organization or group.
Jeremy also made a statement about blondes are easier to work with. If Julie wasn’t a Caucasian, she could file a claim under race discrimination. Race discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features). Race discrimination also can involve treating someone unfavorably because the person is married to (or associated with) a person of a certain race or color or because of a person’s connection with a race-based organization or group, or an organization or group that is generally associated with people of a certain color.

2. If Julie was told that Susannah got the job on March 10, 2011 and Julie filed charges with the EEOC on March 14, 2012. Julie’s wouldn’t be able to file a claim under Title VII because filing a timely claim in mandatory. Under Title VII Julie must file a charge with EEOC within 180 days from the date of the alleged violation, in order to protect the charging party's rights. The last date Julie could have filed was September 6, 2011. Maryland is a deferral state…...

Lamp on a Stand Parable

...“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 (English Standard Version Study Bible) The Lamp on a Stand is a short two verse parable in the Gospel of Matthew, part of Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount. The Sermon on the Mount is the first of five major discourses in the Gospel of Matthew (English Standard Version Study Bible). During this Sermon, Jesus is talking to His disciples (5:1) about the Kingdom of Life and how it applies to their everyday world. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus expounds on how a Christian, who believes in Christ as their Lord and Savior, ought to live in this life. These teachings are challenging, but they are also practical and ethical; providing a framework for His followers. In the beginning of the Sermon, Jesus provides His disciples with the beatitudes, following with a commission, which includes the Lamp on a Stand parable. Before the Lamp parable is the comparison with salt (5:13); Jesus says that his disciples are the salt of the earth. He uses salt because salt is beneficial for many different things, which is how the disciples are going to influence the world. Jesus says that salt that becomes dull is useless except to be thrown out and trampled......

The Lumins Lamp Company, a Producer of Old-Style Oil Lamps, Estimated

...The Lumins Lamp Company, a producer of old-style oil lamps, estimated the following demand function for its product: Q = 120,000 − 10,000P where Q is the quantity demanded per year and P is the price per lamp. The firm’s fixed costs are $12,000 and variable costs are $1.50 per lamp. a. Write an equation for the total revenue (TR) function in terms of Q. b. Specify the marginal revenue function. c. Write an equation for the total cost (TC) function in terms of Q. d. Specify the marginal cost function. a. Total revenue function in terms of Q: We rewrite the demand curve in terms of Q. P=(120,000-Q)/10,000; P=12-Q/10,000; Then, we multiply by Q to find the total revenue (TR). TR=P.Q; TR=(12-Q/10,000)xQ; TR=12Q-Q^2/10,000; b. The marginal revenue function: MR=∂TR/∂Q=12-2Q/10,000; MR=12-Q/5,000; c. The total cost function (TC) in terms of Q. Fixed Costs (FC)=$12,000; Variable Costs (VC)=$1.50. TC=FC+VC TC=12,000+1.5Q d. The marginal cost function: MC=∂TC/∂Q=1.5 e. Total profits (π) equation in terms of Q: π=TR-TC; π=12Q-Q^2/10,000-(12,000+1.5Q); π=10.5Q-Q^2/10,000-12,000; -To maximize profits, the company would produce and sell enough lamps such that MC=MR and charge the corresponding uniform price. Setting, MR=MC yields 12-Q/5,000=1.5 (60,000-Q^*)/5,000=1.5 60,000-Q^*=7,500 Q^*=52,500; At the level of 52,500 lamps, the company would maximize profits. -Substituting Q* back into the demand equation, we solve for the uniform price......

Lava Lamp

...A lava lamp is a decorative novelty item that contains blobs of colored wax inside a glass vessel filled with clear liquid; the wax rises and falls as its density changes due to heating from an incandescent light bulb underneath the vessel. The appearance of the wax is suggestive of pāhoehoe lava, hence the name. The lamps are available in a variety of styles and colors of wax and liquid. A classic lamp contains a standard incandescent bulb or halogen lamp which heats a tall (often tapered) glass bottle containing water and a transparent, translucent or opaque mix of mineral oil, paraffin wax and carbon tetrachloride.[1] The water and/or mineral oil can be coloured with dyes. The density of common wax is much lower than that of water and would float on top under any temperature. However, the carbon tetrachloride is heavier than water (also nonflammable and miscible with wax), and is added to the wax to make its density at room temperature slightly higher than that of the water. When heated, the wax mixture becomes less dense than the water because wax expands more than water when both are heated.[2] It also becomes fluid, and blobs of wax ascend to the top of the device where they cool (which increases their density relative to that of the water) and then descend.[3] A metallic wire coil in the base of the bottle acts as a surface tension breaker to recombine the cooled blobs of wax after they descend. Briton Edward Craven-Walker invented the lava lamp in 1963. His U.S...

Artifact: the Lamp of Knowlege

...The artifact that I chose is known as the traditional nursing lamp, this lamp is given to a nurse during the pinning ceremony upon successful completion of a nursing program. The lamps history dates back to the 1850’s when Florence Nightingale used a lamp to help guide her at night while she tended to the injured and sick during the Crimean War. Florence Nightingale is the woman who molded the profession of nursing known today. Ms. Nightingale carried a lamp that looks nothing like the traditional nursing lamp, her lamp was a Turkish style lantern,(www.florence-nightingale-collections.co.uk). The lamp was made like an accordion and was made with linen cloth or paper wrapped around thin wire and held together with two metal ends, usually made of copper. A candle was used for the light. Today’s nursing lamp resembles a “genie” lamp and is mostly made from ceramic although there are ones made from other materials, such as silver. Today’s nursing lamps can be personalized or have the nursing schools insignia on it. Ms. Nightingale was given the nickname of “The Lady with the Lamp”, by the people she gave aid to during the Crimean War. The nursing lamp is considered a symbol of the care and devotion that a nurse will provide to the injured or sick during his or her nursing career. (www.nursingworld.org/functionalmenucategories/aboutana/wherewecamefrom/florence nightingale). The first nurse pinning ceremony took place in......

Light Lamp

...Started in Madison, Wisconsin, after the student unrest of the 1960s had died down, the Let There Be Light Lamp Shade Company served an upscale local market for many years. It designed and built custom lamp shades and lamp globes. In the mid-1980s, some architects who had once studied under Frank Lloyd Wright in nearby Spring Green were commissioned to design sev- eral large public buildings in Asia. A total of 5,400 identical lights were to be installed, and the Let" There Be Light Lamp Shade Company wished to bid on the work. Terms of sale would include delivery to the foreign port where the buyer would take possession. Transportation costs would be a hurdle. In the initial design, the shades were cylinders that were 11 inches high and 11 inches in diameter and were packed into boxes that were 12 by 12 by 12 inches. (We refer to these shades as style A.) The pac~~$es cost 60 cents each and weighed 1 pound each. The shades cost $4 each to manufacture. They weighed 9 pounds each and 10 pounds packaged. They would be shipped to the Port of Oakland. The land rate to Oakland was $1,000 per 40-foot container, without regard to weight, although the weight of the load could not exceed 44,000 pounds per loaded container because of highway weight restrictions. The in terior dimensions of the intermodal con- tainer were 8 feet wide by 8.5 feet high by 40 feet long. Ocean rates from Oakland to the overseas port were $22......

The problems for the baby and its relationships to its parents 2.3. Ross describtions of the nature phenomenons 3. Conclusion 4. Bibliography p. p. p. p. 2 1. Introduction In my term paper I want to discuss if the nature phenomenons in the short story “A Lamp at Noon” written by Sinclair Ross (1908-1996) have such a loom large that they can be seen as a protagonist. During my research I found the statement: (D)ie enge Verbindung von Mensch und natürlicher Umwelt, welche in ihren extremen klimatischen Verhältnissen [...] immer wieder übermächtig und indifferent grausam gegenüber den ums […] Überleben kämpfende Farmersleuten, ja beinahe als >Protagonist< erscheint. (Gross 158) I found that point of view very interessting and that is way I will discuss this theses. A protagonist is “the main character in a play, film/movie or book [...]” (Wehmeier) Even though the nature phenomenons can’t be the protagonist as such because they are not represented by a character, they have an important situation in the short story. Obvious is that......

There’s and IKEA TV ad that features a discarded lamp, forsaken on a rainy night in some American city. A man looks at the camera and says in a sympathetic Swedish accent, “Many of you feel bad for this lamp,” and then, after a well-timed pause, “That’s because you’re crazy.” What’s the message of the commercial? Spike Jonze, the director of this commercial, is trying to convey that Americans are too attached to furniture and that is all right to throw something away, even if it works and replace it with new updated merchandise. It’s a campaign that says don’t be boring, be trendy and buy new ones. Spend your money because after all it doesn’t cost that much to be stylish. It’s Ikea Lamp or Red Lamp- The Inspiration Room.

The Lamp at Noon

...Miscommunication in The Lamp at Noon In literature, authors often present characters who come from different backgrounds and fail to communicate. In the short story The Lamp at Noon by Sinclair Ross, a series of events trigger post Paul and Ellen’s argument which leads to a family disaster. Paul and Ellen’s different way of life before their coupling gives them different points of views. This leads to their dispute and resulting in the terrible decision to be made which results in the death of the baby. Therefore in the short story The Lamp at Noon, Different lifestyles prior to marriage lead to miscommunication resulting in tragedy. Ellen grew up in the city working as a young teacher in town while Paul grew up in the suburb as a farmer boy. She is use to moving around and “loves shiny things” but that is not provided with her life with Paul. Because of the sand storm, baby and living the farmers life during the great depression, she is unable to leave the house without conflict, causing her to feel trapped like a sealed jar. She claims: “I'm still young— I wasn't brought up this way” (pg. 67) Paul is blind by his pride at the opportunity to work for Ellen’s dad following their argument. “‘you’re a farmer’s wife now. It doesn't matter what you use to be or how you were brought up’” (pg. 67).

Research Project - Lamp Server

...Research Project – LAMP Server LAMP is short for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP. It’s an open-source web development platform, otherwise known as a web stack, that uses Linux as the operating system, Apache as the web server, MySQL as the RDBMS and PHP as the scripting language. Perl or Python is commonly substituted for PHP. In short, a LAMP server is a self-contained web service used to configure and host websites on the internet. Many large corporations use LAMP servers as their primary web servers including Google. In a LAMP server, Linux is the type of operating system that is used to run the services for the server. There are many different versions of Linux including Red Hat, Debian, Ubuntu, and Fedora, all of which are open-source. The Apache HTTP Server has been the most popular web server on the public Internet. Apache is created and kept up by an open group of engineers under the support of the Apache Programming Establishment. Discharged under the Apache Permit, Apache is open-source programming. A wide mixed bag of components are bolstered, and a hefty portion of them are actualized as gathered modules which amplify the center usefulness of Apache. These can go from server-side programming dialect backing to confirmation plans. MySQL is a freely available open source Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) that uses Structured Query Language (SQL). SQL is the most popular language for adding, accessing and managing content in a database. It is most noted......

Bausch Lamp

...Bausch & Lomb enjoyed a great run between 1981 and 1991. Achieving double-digit annual growth was CEO Dan Gill's over riding goal. Things started to unravel in the early 1990s as growth slowed in the United States and Europe, competition intensified, and Gill's strategy of diversification failed. But the unyielding growth targets remained. And the key to financial rewards was straightforward: making the numbers. How did the operating managers cope? With practices that resulted in a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation and a shareholder class-action suit, among other things. Only after the SEC investigation began did Gill and his top executives order the company to follow more conservative practices, eliminate quarter-end wheeling and dealing, reduce distributor inventories, and change bonus guidelines to incorporate broader, longer-term goals. Bausch & Lomb and S.E.C. Settle Dispute on '93 Profits Bausch & Lomb Inc., the optical company, and four former managers of the company settled allegations by the Securities and Exchange Commission yesterday that they had violated securities laws by overstating profits in 1993. The company, which is based in Rochester, said it had also reached a preliminary agreement to pay $42 million to settle a lawsuit brought by shareholders over the matter. While neither admitting nor denying the allegations, Bausch & Lomb accepted an order by the S.E.C. to cease and desist from future violations of the securities......
