...ABSTRACT OCCUPY WALLSTREET 2 The Occupy Wall St. movement started off slow around Sepember 2011. Just as shy as a few short weeks, movements started to appear at countless locations. This movement seemed to come hurdling in kantian stlye. This movement has a great deal to offer the careful observer. By looking at the history of the Occupy Movement and its emergence out of a chaotic and complex enviroment, it exposes the unethnical practices for business and decision making.It starts to grab ones attention when they learn so much from a complexity science that can be applied to this movement. With unethnical stock broking and the federal reserve managing to tilt state policy, capitalism has failed to serve the whole of society. It exposed our corrupt corporations and influenced the 99 percent to start with change within. This is the flame that burned everyone up and out to attend the Occupy Wallstreet movement. 1 OCCUPY WALL STREET Damon Mathis 10-25-2012 Professor Lia , Business Ethnics , Strayer University.

Occupy Wallstreet Movement

...front, it does call for a paradigm shift and that cannot be done unless and until some of the demands of the movement are met. Elections being round the corner, one can expect the OWS to be one of the hot topics which would see some serious steps being taken from the side of the government and more and more pressure being put on them. But all cannot be achieved since the intricacies of the current system are so strong and complicated that not all can be accepted and put into practice. All said and done, the movement does provide for light at the end of the tunnel. References Bejoub, B. G. (2012). A call to corporate compassion. JOURNAL OF REALTIONSHIP MARKETING . Francis, D.

The Guide to Survival

...John Doe * Ms. Smith * English IV Honors * 12 December 2010 * The Guide to Survival * Daniel Defoe’s novel depicts a young Englishman who is shipwrecked on his journey from Brazil. Crusoe becomes joyful after years on the island, calling himself “the king.” Saving the life of a man that the cannibals have come to feast upon, he finds companionship. Naming him Friday, Crusoe takes responsibility for him, educates him but still considers him as a slave. Despite being accustomed to living on a plantation, he adapts to island life. When Crusoe returns later to the island, he finds that the island is an imperial colony governed by Spaniards. When mental toughness is challenged, adaptation to the environment with courage and happiness are the key to survival. * In Robinson Crusoe, Crusoe says “And now I have Difficulties to struggle with, too great for even Nature itself to support, and no Assistance, no Help, no Comfort, no Advice; then I cry’d out, Lord be my help, for I am in great Distress” (91). After Crusoe makes this statement, he becomes independent and figures out the ways of survival by surveying the island as he becomes healthier and starts to mark the days that he has been stranded. He learns that he cannot give up if he wants to see the light of another day. When people are put into a different environment then they are used to, they do not learn to adapt which leads them to an unsuccessful survival point. Change of life styles is......

...Solutions Guide: 1. We focus on free cash flows rather than accounting profits because these are the flows that the firm receives and can reinvest. Only by examining cash flows are we able to correctly analyze the timing of the benefit or cost. Also, we are only interested in these cash flows on an after tax basis as only those flows are available to the shareholder. In addition, it is only the incremental cash flows that interest us, because, looking at the project from the point of the company as a whole, the incremental cash flows are the marginal benefits from the project and, as such, are the increased value to the firm from accepting the project. 2. Although depreciation is not a cash flow item, it does affect the level of the differential cash flows over the project's life because of its effect on taxes. Depreciation is an expense item and, the more depreciation incurred, the larger are expenses. Thus, accounting profits become lower and in turn, so do taxes which are a cash flow item. 3. When evaluating a capital budgeting proposal, sunk costs are ignored. We are interested in only the incremental after-tax cash flows, or free cash flows, to the company as a whole. Regardless of the decision made on the investment at hand, the sunk costs will have already occurred, which means these are not incremental cash flows. Hence, they are irrelevant.

Advocate for Victims and Survivors of Fighting Breeds

...My name is Michaela and I am a mother of a family pit bull survivor.When I first started to become an advocate for victims and survivors of fighting breed dog attacks, I found out very quickly that there is a lot of owners out there that are as viscous as their dogs attack style. The very first comment someone made to me because they couldn't get me to agree with what they were saying was,"I wish your son had died." Since then I have been threatened, bashed, called a racist, hater, compared to Nazis, and told I should be shot. These same type of people have taken my facebook pictues and put them on troll pages just to take shots at me. Just the other day I asked someone who was bashing me,"Where is your compassion for the victims?" They responded by saying,"I know all about you people and your victim mentality." They continued by saying,"You people blame everything bad in your lives on pit bulls." I remember thinking,"My God, these are the kind of people who own these dogs." Some of these people only have compassion for these animals. They put these dogs on a pedestal like Gods and the rest of the world be damned. How can we count on owners to take the precautions they need to if they won't even admit that these serious and fatal injuries are the result of irresponsible ownership and the attack style of these type of dogs. They can't understand that all dog breeds have irresponsible owners. So if it was purely an bad ownership problem then every breed of dogs would be......

Unlike previous demonstrations where in the world, protesters joining this movement are spontaneously organized though Internet, get together to show their strong dissatisfactions towards American social conditions, including money-power deal, social injustice, and political maneuver. Demonstrators claim that government only regard the benefits of the wealthiest 1%, while leave the 99% ordinary people out in cold. Within days, the movement began to gain momentum, by 17th Oct, the protest have affected many major US cities including Washington, and with an increasingly lager scale than ever before. The movement signals American people’s strong dissatisfaction towards the marriage between the money and power, and further exposed an artificial nature of the American democracy. The leakage between money and power is a permanent theme of capitalism. In American, money has been said breast-feeding the politics, serves as an in indispensible lubricant that oils the mechanisms of the American political system, exerts incomparable impact on political elections and decision-making process. Without the back of money, politicians are impossible to get power; however excellent they may be. Take the 2008 presidential election as an example, Obama himself only have spend a record high amount of 75000000 dollar. While......

Random Walk to Wallstreet

...but market is very efficient and eventually it corrects itself. Boom and bust is common when new technology comes but market always corrects any irrationality itself. Malkiel suggest that investor should invest in such companies that have ability to make and sustain profit. The most interesting fact for me was how only changing the name of the company to dot-com or dot-net affected the price of stocks in the market. Companies that changed their names to include some Web orientation enjoyed a 125% greater increase in price during 10 day period than others. This shows us how reckless and irrational investors were at the time and how blindly they follow the flow to get rich faster. Given that, chapter 14- A Life-Cycle guide to Investing is basically a detailed guide on how to invest for yourself. As it suggest risk and return are related, it depends on the time how long you invest in stock and bonds. Stocks and bonds become less risky if investors hold it down for longer period. Thus, age becomes very critical element in determining the allocation of your assets. Malkiel advise that young people should invest in stocks and should have aggressive portfolio. On the other hand older people who are hoping to replace their income to portfolio return should invest in bonds and stay away from risky investment. Malkiel believes that it is a good idea for older people to invest in retirement funds. Malkiel suggest that dollar cost averaging can be useful. If you invest fixed amount......

SLIDE 8 “ MARCO ISSUE” - they cannot do it on their own, finding family that can help them.

...Learning and Information Services Guide to Proofreading What is Proofreading? Proofreading involves checking the content and appearance of your written work: looking for errors in typing, spelling and grammar, and ensuring that it is presented in a style that meets the requirements of a module or course. Proofreading is a skill that requires time, but the more you practice the quicker and easier it will become to spot any corrections that need to be made. Why is Proofreading important? Proofreading is an essential final stage of the essay writing process which should not be overlooked as a poorly presented piece of work can lose marks. After the effort of finding information and writing the essay, don’t lose marks by submitting a work spoiled by spelling and grammatical errors, or that does not adhere to your module’s requirements. A well-presented essay indicates to your tutor that you care about your work. Areas to check: Proofreading can be time-consuming and it is easy to underestimate the time required. It is a good idea to build in time for proofreading into your assignment plan. It is especially important that you follow any module requirements regarding referencing, line spacing, paragraph indentation, and margins, and that these are observed consistently and continuously. Checklist: Grammar | | check | spelling | Don’t rely on the spellchecker in Word - this won’t pick up “typos” as from/form or been/bean. Use a dictionary to check......

Survivor Syndrome

...Table of Contents Question 1 2 Introduction 2 Reactions to frustration 2 Analysis of organisational behaviour 3 Question 2 4 Question 3 5 Introduction 5 What is survivor syndrome? 5 Question 1 Give an overview of the frustration model and how it can be used to analyse organisational behaviour Introduction Frustration occurs when a motivated drive is blocked before a person reaches a desired goal. The barrier may either be overt (outward, or physical) or covert (inward, or mental-socio-psychological). Overt acts might include strikes, work slowdowns, grievances, or lawsuits. Covert acts would include sabotage, secret withholding of output and stealing of organisational property. A smooth progression of the need-driven incentive motivational cycle and fulfilment of one’s expectations do not always occur in reality. There are some difficulties and barriers that do not let a person achieve his goals and so they lead to frustration. The frustration model can be useful in the analysis of not only behaviour in general but also specific aspects of on-the-job behaviour as illustrated by. 12e in the model below F. Luthans (2011), Oganisational Behavior: Need Drive Goal/ (deficiency) (deficiency with direction incentives reduction of with direction) Barrier the drives and fulfilment (1) Overt deficiencies) (2) Covert Frustration Defence mechanisms (1) Aggression (2) Withdrawal (3) Fixation (4)......
