“Parable of the Sadhu”

Apply your CORE perspective to what you would do in the “Parable of the Sadhu,” discussing your initial response to the sadhu and how it did, or did not, reflect your CORE perspective. Place in my dropbox by 1:00 PM Nov. 5.

1. What I would have done of my initial response

When I read the article, I am not so struggle as the author. In my first thought, I was thinking of what we can do and what we can’t do. Since we have a couple of hours to think how to deal with him, compared our time and his life, I will definitely take care of him immediately.

First of all, actually, it’s not a matter of instant emergency, strictly speaking, we have more than six hours to decide what we can do, so it was not the matter that you have to make decision within a minute.

Secondly, to minimal the reaction time in a team in the case without a clear leader, I will call the teammates immediately to have a 20-minutes meeting, to make everybody pull out their thoughts, what’s the strength and weakness to save him, what we can do and what we cannot do. After squeezing all ideas, I would have made a summary and a poll to decide what we should do. And then just follow the majority because I still had the commitment to other team members. So this is the instant reaction that I would have taken when I read it the first time.

2. A familiar discussion in Law School: my experience as an attorney

This kind of examples are familiar with law school students, in fact, we take about two classes to discuss about the abandon. That is, what kind of behavior will constitute the act of abandon, do we have the obligation to take measures instead of abandon? From the philosophy of laws, every human kind has the obligation not to do certain things, e.g. murder, steal, etc. On the other hand, we have much less obligations to do certain things. Thus in the field…...

James Thurber

...James Thurber By Rahul Patel/10 [pic] Rahul Patel Mr. Hurdle Composition 11 May, 2012 James Thurber Part I: “Authors of light pieces have, nobody knows why, a genius for getting into minor difficulties: they walk into the wrong apartments, they drink furniture polish for stomach bitters, they drive their cars into the prize tulip beds of haughty neighbors, they playfully slap gangsters, mistaking them for old school friends” (James Thurber). James Thurber was a cartoonist and an author. He was born on December 8th 1984 to his parents, Charles and Mary Thurber. Thurber’s father was a clerk and a minor politician, while his mother was a practical joker and very strong-minded. For example his mother would tell visiting guests that she was in love the post man and she had to be kept in the attic because of it. She would also tell people that she was a cripple and then she would suddenly stand up and tell everyone she had miraculously healed(James Thurber 1 of 5). James Thurber also had two brothers, William and Robert. When Thurber and William were little, they were playing with a bow and arrow, and William shot James in the eye. This led James to be partially blind and because of this injury he couldn’t participate in any sports or activities, but this injury developed a very creative imagination in Thurber’s mind. A neurologist at the time had a theory that he might have Charles Bonnet Syndrome, which is a condition......

...Islamic Banking: True Modes of Financing By Dr. Shahid Hasan Siddiqui, Eminent Pakistani Banker & Economist Introduction Prohibition of interest is ordained in Islam in all forms and intent. This Prohibition is strict, absolute and unambiguous. The Holy Qur'an in verse 278 of Surah Al- Baqarah states: "O ye who believe! Fear Allah and give up what remains of your demand for riba, if ye are indeed believers." and verse 2: 279 says "If you do it not, take notice of war from Allah and His Messenger. But if ye turn back, ye shall have your capital sums. Deal not unjustly and you shall not be dealt with unjustly." It therefore, follows that interest is prohibited as it leads to injustices (zulm) and Islam is against all forms of injustices and exploitations and pleads an economic system, which aims at securing extensive socio-economic justice. The Islamic law of prohibition of riba, which includes interest, was originally not based on economic theory but on Divine Authority which considers the charging of interest as an act of injustice. There could be no denying of the fact that under the interest-based system of banking or in a system not strictly based on the principles and spirit of Shari’ah, depositors as well as borrowers are exploited in one form or the other. It is however, significant to note that, as in the case of conventional banking, the depositors are being exploited most under the system and practices enforced by banks and financial institutions operating......

Are Bankers Undercompensated?

...Are Bankers Undercompensated? The general public, more often than not, has the impression that bankers are the evil seed in the macro corporate environment. So, we need to ask ourselves, why? This notion is primarily based on the fact that “our economy is only as good as our banks,” therefore, CEOs are responsible for the country’s economic performance. Secondly, one of a bank’s many roles is to take care of people’s accounts, thus, in time of crises it is easy for individuals to make them liable for their uncomfortable financial position. Additionally, it is needles to say that these top executives are public figures, making it easy for people to put a name and face as the target of their dissatisfaction. Finally, in order for us to evaluate their compensation we need to draw a parallel between their performance as CEOs and their salary (including bonus), as well as compare them to CEOs in other industries. To assess performance, take into consideration that a country’s GDP is broken-down into four components: personal consumption expenditure, which is further broken down into goods and services; business investment; government spending; and net exports of goods and services. With the greatest US GDP contributor being personal consumption expenditure, services alone accounted for 46% of what the nation produced in 2011; and, the banking industry falls into that category. Moreover, if you take a look at exhibit1, which shows a further detailed breakdown of the US’s GDP...

...James Endorsements, agents and fans across the world are all things that you would expect a popular pro athlete to have. LeBron James is a basketball player that was dealing with all of this in high school, at the age of 18 (LeBron James, 2005). His sophomore and junior year of high school he was being compared to the greatest basketball players of all time (LeBron James, 2005). To be all over the news with every sports commentator talking about LeBron, he had to have a lot of self control and stay focused on his basketball game, by blocking all the distractions out (The Person, 2005). LeBron James is the basketball icon for his generation; he achieved that by being one of the youngest most successful players in the NBA as of now. Growing up in a broken home LeBron never had a father figure to guide him certain directions in life He did however have a strong mother and relatives who tried their best to raise LeBron. All through his schooling there was some financial trouble in his family life but LeBron had the will to carry on. By middle school his mother knew he was a special boy, talented on the court and in his studies. As high school rolled in LeBron continued to get taller, stronger and better skilled than the other players around him; the coaches soon noticed him and he made varsity as a freshman. During his junior year he was already known around the country as the next Michael Jordan or Magic Johnson. The fans were so unbelievable that many of the games had to......

Henry James

...HENRY JAMES ( 1843 - 1916 ) Henry James was born an American and Joseph Conrad a Pole. Each chose to settle in England to become a British subject and for each, the collision of different cultures was an important themes. The relation of America to Europe is a central concern in James’ fiction : in major novels such as “ The Portrait Of A Lady “(1881), “ The Wings Of The Dove” ( 1902 ),or “ Daisy Miller” (1879) the moral consequences of the meeting of American innocence and enthusiasm with a sophisticated but corrupt European culture are explored by means of irony , a sustained attention to the nuances of individual CONSCIOUSNESS , and a prose style of increasing subtlety and complexity . But in their technique James and Conrad are most revolutionary .Modernist novelists sought radical redefinition of the REAL. Since the individual always perceives reality through his or her own consciousness , the contents and structure of consciousness represent the only accessible reality .A number of philosophical influences are relevant here : William James ‘ Henry James’ brother ‘ a psychologist and philosopher elaborated the notion of “pure experience”, all reality being described in terms of SUBJECTIVE HUMAN EXPERIENCE ( and he also named the new trend “ stream of consciousness”). Sigmund Freud (1856- 1939) had had an enormous influence upon modern literature as a result of his idea that “ all mental phenomena have......

Protection to Bankers

...Protection to Bankers from disclosure of certain information to public  Banking is one of the most risky sectors as far as privacy is concerned due to the highly sensitive and personal nature of information which is often exchanged, recorded and retained. Although India has RBI guidelines and legislations to protect data, this blog post looks at the extent of those protections, and what are the areas that still need to be addressed. Introduction Banking is one of the most at risk sectors for privacy violations due to the sensitive, and highly personal nature of information that is exchanged, recorded, and retained. Individuals must trust banks with personal identifying information, their financial records, the access information to their accounts,  and their credit history. Thus, privacy violations are not taken lightly and heavily impact the individual whose privacy was violated. Ways in which a violation of privacy can take place in the banking sector include: sharing personal information with third parties without consent  for marketing purposes, stolen or lost banking number or card, sharing personal information or allowing access to third parties without informed consent, inadequate notification  to an individual concerning what will be done with their data, collecting more personal data than is necessary, refusal to provide financial records upon request by client, incorrectly recording personal information, and loss of  a clients personal data due to improper......

James Dimon

...James “Jamie” Dimon, JPMorgan Chase's CEO, is one of America's most powerful and outspoken bankers. Dimon's career in the brokerage business seemed preordained by his lineage. His grandfather, a Greek immigrant from Smyrna, was a broker and passed on his knowledge of the business to his son and partner, Theodore Dimon. Jamie Dimon's father and grandfather worked together for 19 years, and Dimon worked summers in their New York office. In 1978 Dimon graduated cum laude from Tufts University. He worked for the Management Analysis Center, a consulting firm in Boston, for several years and then enrolled in Harvard Business School. While a student at Harvard, Dimon interned at Goldman Sachs and was offered a job there after graduation in 1982. He declined, instead going to work for the mentor who would profoundly shape his career: Sandy Weill. From 1982 to 1985 Weill and Dimon teamed up at American Express, where Dimon signed on as vice president and assistant to the president. Dimon's abilities to crunch numbers meshed well with Weill's people skills. When Weill was forced out of American Express, he made Dimon his second in command at the little-known consumer-lending outfit that he bought called Commercial Credit Company. That tiny firm was the beginning of what would eventually become Citigroup. Dimon was a key member of the team that launched and defined Commercial Credit's strategy. He served as the company's chief financial officer and an executive vice president and......

Goldsmith Bankers

...FUNCTIONS OF THE GOLDSMITH BANKERS The first recorded history of banks was during ancient Roman and Greek Empires, where the temple priests would store gold and silver for safekeeping. Coins were brought to the temples not only as offerings but also for the payment of taxes. Since the temple was a place of worship and was always guarded, it was also considered a safe and secure place for storing items of value. The temples also lent money to the locals for trading purposes and exchanged foreign coins for local coins. During the medieval period, modern banking first began in Italy and then in Holland where banks facilitated the growing trade between Europe and far East. (Wikipedia: History of Banking). In areas where formal banking systems had not yet been established, goldsmiths were performing the necessary money lending and exchange transactions (Black, reading 4-3, p.2). The number of goldsmith-bankers in London has been estimated at 32 in 1670, 44 in 1677, and 42 in 1700(Goldsmith-Banking: Mutual Acceptance and Interbank Clearing in Restoration London. Quinn, Stephen). Edward Backwell was one of the many goldsmith bankers who had established a network of money lending business in London. Along with selling and trading precious metal jewellery and articles, he accepted deposits of gold from merchants for safekeeping; paid interest on the deposits; lent money on interest to the Government and the overseas trading companies; and exchanged foreign coinage (Black,......
