1. Make a list of five specific HR problems you think Carter Cleaning will have to grapple with.

• Sexual Harassment

• Non-trained staff

• Poor Manager

• Probably Law suit

• Low job performance

2. What would you do first if you were Jennifer?

• Review the finances to see how the businesses are doing. Then meet with management and the staff.

1. Is it true, as Jack Carter claims that “we can’t be accused of being discriminatory because we hire mostly women and minorities anyway? Yes, he did not see anything wrong on the way he staff his manager at his store.

2. How should Jennifer and her company address the sexual harassment charges and problems? Investigate with both of the women who confront Jennifer with the claim and the managers.

3. How should she and her company address the possible problems of age discriminative? To review everyone salary that’s does that participle job. If the fact that the gentlemen find it true, then salary adjustment should be done immediately. If not, if he can prove it Carter Cleaning can be sued.

4. Given the fact that each of its stores has only a handful of employees, is her company fact covered by equal rights legislation? Yes, there seven employees in each store.

5. And finally, aside from the specific problems, what other personnel management matters (application forms, training, and so on) have to be reviewed given the need to bring them into compliance with equal right laws? Carter cleaning employees has lack knowledge of the job and respect of the staff. Training is needed to get the company on…...

Mitsubishi Sex Scandal Research Paper

...The EEOC believed that as early as 1990 there had been cases of sexual harassment going unnoticed in the Mitsubishi factory, after getting complaints from some of the female workers (Cray). The EEOC claimed that the company personal, at Normal, Illinois plant, began having sex parties in 1992. The supervisors from Japan actually requested these parties, and the parties were on company time (Cray). A couple years after the EEOC made the claims about Mitsubishi’s managers, the EEOC decided to file its commissioner’s charge after it examined the MMMA plant at Normal, Illinois and found that the plant had inadequate sexual harassment policies (Cray). Soon after, the media started noticing what was going on at the Mitsubishi plants. With the EEOC and the media breathing down Mitsubishi back, the company picked up its disciplinary pace in 1995 and 1996 (Cray). However, on April 22, 1996, Mitsubishi funded a “spontaneous” march around the EEOC’s Chicago offices, done by 3,000 employees, as its last act of retaliation (Cray). With the march not yielding any positive fruition, Mitsubishi hired US Labor Secretary Lynn Martin, later that year, to examine the company’s policies. The organization hired Lynn because she had a reputation for promoting women’s rights during her 10 years in congress (Cray). In 1998, the suit finally came to an end and Mitsubishi agreed to pay $34 million to female workers at the Normal, Illinois plant, and it paid out several more millions of......

Living the Yolo Lifestyle

...Drake, whose song “The Motto” has the hook, “You only live once, that’s the motto...YOLO, and we ’bout it every day, every day, every day.” After a video for the song was released in February, the buzzword spread quickly among the high school and college-age set by word of mouth, not just in person but through the turbocharged vehicle of social media. How quickly? Consider the lists of slang compiled every semester by students of Connie Eble, a professor of English at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. YOLO was entirely absent from the submissions by Eble’s fall 2011 classes. By the spring semester, YOLO had become the most frequently mentioned slang term among the students, just edging out “totes” for “totally” and “cray” (or “cray-cray”) for “crazy.” What accounts for the meteoric rise of YOLO, and how has it gone virtually unnoticed by nonmillennials? Its appeal to the youthful is self-evident. YOLO as a shorthand mantra defines youth, on a certain level. What is teenagehood if not the adventurous, often foolhardy, desire to test the limits of acceptable behavior—because hey, why not? YOLO! The carpe diem sentiment of “you only live once” has a long history predating its punchy acronymic clipping. Garson O’Toole, on his Quote Investigator blog, traces variations on the theme back to the 18th century, as in this line from Samuel Richardson’s novel “Clarissa”: “We live but once in this world; and when gone, are gone from it for ever.” The exact wording......

Lobster Ban Issue

...discontinue importing lobster from Australia. This is due to vexation of Chinese government in regards to the fact that many Australian exporters sold their lobster to China through Hong Kong to avoid high tariff. However, only Australian import that has been stopped; whereas China still accepted imports from both New Zealand and South Africa. The termination of lobster import to China which worth $300 million, will cause staggering effect on SA, Tasmania, Victoria and WAlobster exporters. Collier stated the reason is because up to 80 percent of lobsters caught in Victoria and 60 percent in Western Australia, are sent to China which pay a premium price. This makes China to be the primary consumer in lobster market. As a result, up to 50 cray boats were stuck at open sea because fisherman cannot deal with their catches and they would die without cool aerated water from the open sea. Therefore, many lobster fishers are considering to leave the industry and to seek more profitable income source. This standstill will cause a major demand decrement on lobster; thus forcing the price to go down. It is reported that the port-side price dwindle by almost half, from $45/kg AUD to $25/kg AUD; while retail price went down from $115/kg to $61.5/kg. Consequently, many complaints are received from the fishermen due to their inability to cover up their losses. Chris Beissel stated that fishers can cover up their losses although the price went down as low as $25/kg by catching more......

One wry elaboration, credited to the comedian Joe E. Lewis in 1952, is “You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough.” Today’s young purveyors of YOLO do indeed appear to be trying to work it right, though what that means is up for debate. Eble’s students illustrate its typical use, as a carefree tag to explain an impulsive choice: “You want to park illegally in this spot? YOLO!” “Should I buy these shoes or pay rent? YOLO!” The word has also......

History of Computer Science

...of Edgar F. Codd on relational databases. Codd won the Turing award in 1981. Unix, a very influential operating system, was developed at Bell Laboratories by Ken Thompson (b. 1943) and Dennis Ritchie (b. 1941). Brian Kernighan and Ritchie together developed C, an influential programming language. Other new programming languages, such as Pascal (invented by Niklaus Wirth) and Ada (developed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah), arose. The first RISC architecture was begun by John Cocke in 1975, at the Thomas J. Watson Laboratories of IBM. Similar projects started at Berkeley and Stanford around this time. The 1970's also saw the rise of the supercomputer. Seymour Cray (b. 1925) designed the CRAY-1, which was first shipped in March 1976. It could perform 160 million operations in a second. The Cray XMP came out in 1982. Cray Research was taken over by Silicon Graphics. There were also major advances in algorithms and computational complexity. In 1971, Steve Cook published his seminal paper on NP-completeness, and shortly thereafter, Richard Karp showed that many natural combinatorial problems were NP-complete. Whit Diffie and Martin Hellman published a paper that introduced the theory of public-key cryptography, and a public-key cryptosystem known as RSA was invented by Ronald Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman. In 1979, three graduate students in North Carolina developed a distributed news server which eventually became Usenet. 1980's This decade also saw the rise of......

Tiahne-2 (NUDT) based in China, in the National Super Computer Centre in Guangzhou. 2. Titan (Cray) based in the US, in the Ridge National Laboratory. 3. Sequoia (IBM) based in the US, in the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. 4. K computer (Fujitsu) based in Japan, in the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science. 5. Mira (IBM) based in the US, in the Argonne National Laboratory. 6. Trinity (Cray) based in the US, in Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. 7. Piz Daint (Cray) based in Switzerland, in the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre. 8. Hazel Hen (Cray) based in Germany, in HLRS Stuttgart. 9. Shaheen II (Cray) based in Saudi Arabia, in King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. 10. Stampede (Dell) based in the US, in Texas Advanced Computing Centre of Texas. This is the list of only top 10 supercomputers in the world, however, it can be seen that the majority of them are used for science purpose. According to the website, the major manufacturers of supercomputers are HP 31% of the market share and Cray, with 13.8% of the market share. The rest belongs to other companies, such as Dell, IBM, Fujitsu and others. In conclusion, it is clear that although mainframes are not as powerful as supercomputers, they are still very powerful......

Ge Sustainability Assessment Week 2

...more that one millon pounds of PCB’s or polychlorinated bipheny into New York’s Hudson. The EPA cites that the PCB’s came directly, (EPA, 2016). The EPA considers a 200 miles stretch of the historic Hudson to be one the largest Superfund sites in our nation. What was GE's environmental stance during the latter part of the 20th century? In three words Dismal, Denial, and Diswoned! Mr. Jack Welch’s, reigned as Chairman and CEO of GE during the years of 1981-2001, taking over from his predecessor Reginald H. Jones. Regarding the case of GE’s dumping of PCB’s into the Hudson, a rather frosty Welch negotiated with the state of New York, settling to pay a mere $3 million dollars for the damage caused to the Hudson River. According to Cray (2001), “GE executives probably hoped the deal would bury the issue forever, and that everyone concerned about the PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) lying on the bottom of the river would let nature take its course.” (Multinational Monitor, 2001) During that time Jack Welch’s stance on the accusations resulted in historical comments filled with denial, Jack said, during a 60 Minutes interview, "The word 'dump' is used! We didn't dump! We had a permit from the U.S. government and the State of New York to do exactly what we did. Do you think I'd come to work in a company that would do that or condone that? I wouldn't do it, Lesley! This is nuts!” (60 MINUTES, October 29, 2000) GE would go on to fight the government, at first refusing to......

...test. This test can be performed by using a spirometer to measure lung function. Other tests that the healthcare provider may order are chest x-rays, blood test, and sputum culture. In the early stages, these tests may be normal. However, as the symptoms progress, blood test may reveal more red blood cells than normal or too much carbon dioxide is staying in the body. If the patient is young or a nonsmoker and have symptoms of emphysema, the healthcare provider will do a blood test to check the level of alpha-1 antitrypsin. The only surefire way to identify COPD and emphysema is a CT scan. This diagnostic test is expensive, and the insurance company may require pre-authorization. But while early diagnosis is crucial, it rarely takes place (Cray, Ellin, Lemonick pg. 40-41). Whorwell3 There is no cure for emphysema and the damage to the lungs form COPD cannot be reversed. The treatment options are to relieve the symptoms, treat infections when they occur, and prevent complications. The most important treatment is to stop smoking. The healthcare provider can offer several types of cessation programs to assist the patient. They include nicotine patches and gum, medications, and support groups. Inhaled therapies can also help relieve the symptoms of COPD and emphysema. These may include steroids and bronchodilators. The medications can be in pill or liquid form, and some need to be used with a nebulizer machine. Breathing exercises, walking, or riding a bike may be part of......

...where and how to do it. Who is responsible for what and who to interact with, how to know that we have done it right, and how to make it better” (Nino, J.M., Lastra, E., Correia, P. 2010), this is what is considered to be a planning process. Inside of Halliburton’s planning of management the effects from lawful matters, morals, and business public responsibility has a remarkable impact on the company. Halliburton was dissatisfied with paying such outrageous taxes or taxes all together, while the headquarters was in Houston, Texas. This is why the move to Dubai came about. This was to avoid paying the taxes that were fair. Halliburton could argue with the fact that “a portion of its profits should be attributed to the no – tax jurisdiction” (Cray, C.). The management planning for Halliburton was impacted greatly by Dick Chenney. Dick Chenney was selected to be the CEO from 1995 to 2000. Chenney used his position as a politician to bring in government agreements to Halliburton. This doubled the revenue for federal government contracts. Halliburton’s planning has been impacted by this with the issues that arose. With Chenney’s exiting the company, stocks fell, and the share prices started to fall. Halliburton initiated the PPI so they could keep alive, while Chenney was there and after he left. From 1998 to 2001, Halliburton did not keep trustworthy records of their sales which cost some legal issues of its own, which has obstructed the company’s planning function. In return......
