Aren’tWe Done Yet?
LabCo is a large construction contracting firm that serves a variety of industrial customers that purchase machinery and equipment from LabCo. LabCo’s business primarily involves the design and manufacture of large industrial-sized machinery and tooling that is used by its customers in manufacturing parts and components for fighter jets, transport planes, and other aerospace-related machinery and equipment.
All of LabCo’s construction contracts involve the design, development, and manufacture of machines that are unique and customized to the specifications of its customers. LabCo negotiates all its contracts with its customers on either a fixed-price or cost-plus basis.
LabCo has developed an accounting policy to recognize revenue related to its customized construction contracts, which reads as follows:
The Company performs under a variety of contracts, some of which provide for reimbursement of cost plus fees, and others that are fixed-price-type contracts. Revenues and fees on these contracts are primarily recognized on a contract-by-contract basis using the percentage-of-completion method of accounting, which is most often based on contract costs incurred to date compared with total estimated costs at completion (cost-to-cost method).
The completed-contract method of accounting is used in instances in which reliably dependable estimates of the total costs to be incurred under a specific contract cannot be made.
LabCo has entered into a contract with a customer, Halibut, to build a six-axis laser cutting machine that will be used by Halibut to cut airplane wings for a new fighter jet that will be sold by Halibut to a large government buyer. The contract entered into was for a fixed price and requires detailed and involved performance specifications. Upon entering…...

Human on the Death Sentence: We Pay What We Done… or Not

...Death Sentence: We Pay What We Done… or Not Introduction For most Americans and around the world, the automobile is an essential part of daily life especially for “every second is money” and hate waiting type of people. Cars have shaped our culture, landscape. Moreover, the industries that build and serve cars form shaped our economy. The automobile is not without its faults, but they often are concealed by the styling, performance and other features that make today’s vehicles so desirable. However, when a product is so widely used, its faults can add up to massive unwanted side effects. For example, global warming is one of the side effects that motor vehicles play a major part in what scientists call the most serious environmental problem the world faces which is the carbon dioxide (CO2) that emitted as the engine burns fuel. However, people might argue that greenhouse gas pollution which causes global warming comes from numerous sources that any single contribution seems small in proportion to the world total; collectively it becomes a vast problem especially automobile is everywhere around the world. To address a problem of such scale requires international agreements and national, states and local policies. However, making good on such commitments will require changes in how we manage every activity that contributes to the problem. For example, how much should we cut and where, and/or promo what programs to save ourselves? To answer this question, we need a......

Case 12-05 "Aren't We Done Yet?"

...NAME DATE CLASS CASE STUDY LabCo, a large construction-contracting firm, is faced with the decision of switching from the percentage of completion method to the completed contract method for one of its contracts with one of its customers, Halibut. The contract called for a six-axis laser, cutting machine that would be used to cut aircraft wings for fighter jets that would be sold by Halibut to a large government buyer. LabCo realized that this would be a unique arrangement that would require a lot of specifications, however, based on its experience with similar contracts and with working with Halibut before, LabCo decided that the percentage of completion would be appropriate for this contract. As this project progressed, LabCo encountered many problems. Their chief financial officer finally decided that the amount to be estimated for this contract could no longer be reliably estimated, and that the percentage of completion method would no longer be the appropriate method for recognizing revenue. LabCo’s accounting policy for the revenue treatment of its contracts is quite reasonable. First of all, LabCo’s business primarily involves the design and manufacture of large industrial-sized machinery and tooling that is used by its customers in manufacturing parts and components for fighter jets, transport planes, and other aerospace-related machinery and equipment which falls under the contracts covered in ASC 605-35-15-2,3. ASC 605-35-15-2 covers contracts as “binding......

...The United States is a nation that leads the world in science and technology. American technology has produced advances in many areas of medicine. As this medical research continues, there has controversy between advancing medicine through testing and preserving life. In the United States and around the world, there have been debates and laws created which demonstrate the controversy in stem cell research. One of the main debates is that stem research can be used to discover cures for illness. Many experts believe stem cell research can be used to help against diabetes, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer (Lacayo, 2001). However, many people worry that stem cell research will be used for unethical purposes such as human cloning. They also argue that money from the government should not be used to destroy a human embryo. In the United States and around the world there have been many laws regarding stem cell research. President Bush was the first President that made funds available for stem cell research. (Bush, 2007). According to the National Institute of Health, a government biomedical research organization, President George W Bush announced in August, 2001 a policy which advances stem cell research. Federal funds may be used for research on human embryonic stem cells if the following three requirements are met: 1) the destruction of the embryo must be prior to August 9, 2001, 2) stem cells were removed from embryo for the purpose of reproduction, which “was no......

...Requirement 1: 605-36 Revenue Recognition (1) Complete Contract Method 25-61 An entity using the percentage-of-completion method as its basic accounting policy shall use the completed-contract method for a single contract or a group of contracts for which reasonably dependable estimates cannot be made or for which inherent hazards make estimates doubtful. 25-90 When lack of dependable estimates or inherent hazards cause forecasts to be doubtful, the completed-contract method is preferable. 25-97 Circumstances to be considered in determining when a project is substantially completed include, for example, delivery of the product, acceptance by the customer, departure from the site, and compliance with performance specifications.

Research the topic using the GBC library catalogue, and locate four secondary sources (preferably articles) on this topic.

Write 1000- 1250 word argumentative essay using the secondary sources you found to aid your argument. Topics: 1) Is the college degree worth the money you pay for it and/or does it guarantee you a return in investment? Should we view education as a humanistic experience or yet another consumer product? 2) Does communication technology impact workers’ productivity?

...with loan sharks. She was frightened at the sight of the blood, and he told her she could help save him. She agreed at once, without asking any questions. The next night, after the dishwashing shift, he picked her up in his car and told her, “You’ll help me, and I’ll also teach you how to enjoy yourself.” They drove to an isolated grove at the edge of the city, where a row of cars with their lights on were waiting. “A party,” she thought to herself. A few minutes later she was placed on a frayed child’s blanket that had been tossed on the back seat of the car; her brother taught her everything in 10 minutes. Behind him was a row of men who got out of the cars and stood one behind the other in front of the blanket. When one finished, the next one began. One car after another, night after night. For an entire month. That is how her elder brother paid his debt to the loan sharks − with the body of his 11-year-old sister. What followed was no better. To stop her from telling the story, he told their alcoholic mother that she, his sister, had forced him, had asked for it. “Whore,” screamed the woman who had given birth to her. “I knew in the end you’d be a whore,” and threw her out of the house into the street. D. was taken in by an older man and later gave birth to his children and built a family. But occasionally she would be overcome by uncontrollable fury and would mercilessly beat anyone who was near her. It made no difference if it was her husband or her young......

Arent We All Equal?

...Natalie Peguero English 112 Section 45 Prof. Mayers November 20, 2013 Aren’t we all equal? One of the most controversial topics today in America is immigration. Should they be deported? Or should they be given a chance for a better future? Immigrants go through abuse daily, they are treated unequal and as minority. Some immigrants’ are given the chance to work; they work hard but are treated and paid miserably. Even the health care provided to immigrants is sometimes cruel because of where they come from. Undocumented immigrants are abused all the time and because of their illegal crime the mistreatment is thought to be acceptable, but they aren’t the only ones that are being mistreated. Documented immigrants also go through harm of the government and society. Legal immigrants are treated different because of their inability of speaking English, or speaking with an accent. Many Americans’ seem to believe that just because somebody doesn’t speak English as they do, they don’t deserve to be treated as equal. In “Aria: Memoir of a Bilingual Childhood” by Richard Rodriguez you can see how he as child was treated different. Rodriguez being raised in Sacramento, California by Mexican Immigrants had difficulty with the English language and growing up in the society he lived in. Immigrants are mistreated in the daily basis just because of where they come from. They are unequally paid, made fun of, looked down on, treated differently and even those services that should be...

Oceanic Damage: What Have We Done to Our Planet?

...Oceanic Damage: What have we done to our planet? Negative press, research, and reports from around the world raised issues regarding our problematic oceans. Misguided and crucial errors humans make harm oceans using unsustainable practices which eventually eliminate many species of sea creatures and destroy the water they inhabit and we need for our survival as well. Countries around the world have been heavily positively praised while some have been lauded negatively, for instance, the United States. A crying shame how most countries on Earth seem in continuing spiraling towards ecological harm in an abundance of forms, regarding ocean garbage, coral reefs and oil spills over a twenty-five year period have caused our oceans’ ecology suffering to escalate. Incidents regarding a floating garbage patch in the Pacific, even cruise ships repeating sewage and garbage dumping are atrocious. The problem is, most people do not pay attention and take situations such as these as non-existent. Evidence documented over decades suggest our oceans’ trouble will continue unless change happens sooner rather than later. Change in how we respond to problems should not take years for resolution, because some of the damage may be minute and builds up over time, while some comes in big bunches that there is not time to waste in resolving. In some of these cases, years elapsed before any significant progress had been made, resulting in more damage than first observed. The problems have......

Are We Having Bud Light Yet?

...Are we having Bud Light yet? With one simple word Budweiser was able to reach out to millions of people and increase their audience. Wazzup, a word that is not even grammatically correct is the first beer commercial that I have memory of. It impacted my life in such a way that I have never forgotten it. Budweiser takes advantage of their reputation and makes witty and funny commercials that are fun to watch and unforgettable. They incorporate humour and sex appeal into their ads to sell beer to men. Through their advertisements, beer products are designed to appeal to the young and middle aged hyper-masculine men. Women only appear in the ads to bring men their beer, or to be attracted to the magical masculinity that comes with drinking this brand of beer. Bud Light (derived from Budweiser) is a prime example as their ads use visual appearance, a metaphor, and ethos to send a message to men that there is nothing more pleasing in life than drinking beer. With little time, and little space, advertisements must convince people to buy their product, and the best way to do this is through visual appearance. In the article by Jib Fowles, he states that in order for an image to be effective "the image must be pleasant to the greatest number and offensive to the fewest..." (Fowles, 149). For many products it is easiest to use sex appeal to convey their message. It is less difficult to use sex appeal on men than it is on women. This is because in general men have......
