ITS 200 Ethics & Legal Issues in Information Technology
Mr. Daniel R. O’Day
October 12, 2015
Lab 2 Lab two focuses on information about IT professionals and IT users and common ethical issues they face. This lab will help me with any future issues I may come across during my career whether it be with other employees in the company I work for or peers that are in facing an issue that goes against the IT professional codes of ethics.

Part One: “What Would You Do?” – Situation 1 Even though my relationship with my old roommate is important to me, I would not be able to put in a good word or get his resume into the “right hands.” I would be lying at my job (a place that I worked hard to even get into) and that could get me into a lot of trouble if the company realized that he does not actually have the knowledge he says he does. Here’s exactly what happened. My old college roommate got let go from his job and has asked me to help him become an employee at the company I work for. I told him that I have no problem putting in a good word and getting his resume in the “right hands” but then I saw his resume. The problem is that he greatly exaggerated pretty much everything single thing on his resume and expects me to not tell my boss that he actually does not have the knowledge he says he does so that he could get the job. There are a lot of people who can be put into harms way if I were to lie for my old college roommate. Those who are directly affected by this problem include me, my old roommate from college, the entire company I work for, my coworkers, and my boss. This problem would cause a lot of issues at my workplace if he were to get the job and mess up because he actually does not know how to do all the things he said he knew how to do on his resume. If I were to keep my mouth shut about him…...

...CHAPTER ONE: GLOBALIZATION AND INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS I. INTRODUCTION As people, firms, and other organizations have expanded their access to resources, goods, services, and markets across wider geographical areas, they have also become more deeply affected (positively and negatively) by conditions outside their home countries. Globalization refers to the broadening set of interdependent relationships among people from different parts of a world that happens to be divided into nations. A. What is International Business? International business involves all commercial transactions—private and governmental—between parties of two or more countries. Global events and competition affect almost all firms—large or small. However, the international environment is more complex and diverse than a firm’s domestic environment. II. THE FORCES DRIVING GLOBALIZATION Globalization is a difficult concept to measure. Currently, about 25 percent of world production is sold outside of its country of origin, restrictions on imports continue to decline, the foreign ownership of assets as a percent of world production continues to increase, and world trade continues to grow more rapidly than world production. Recessionary contraction in recent years has at least temporarily reversed this trend. That said, on a value basis, only a few countries (mainly very small nations) either sell more than half of their production abroad or source more than half of their consumption from foreign countries.......

...AP stands for “Additional Problem.” “AP21” is additional problem 1 from chapter 2. The additional problems for the Markets material is after the AP for chapter 12. Chapter 2 AP21 When is revenue recognized by a corporation? When the corporation designs a project. When the corporation mass produces a product. When the customer orders a product. When the product is delivered to the customer and the customer promises to pay When the customer fulfills his promise in item #d above by paying the cash to the corporation. When the corporation receives a cash deposit from a customer for a product to be delivered next month. When the right of return expires. The corporation sells thousands of small lawn mowers. Answer d. When the product is delivered to the customer and the customer promises to pay Explanation: The FASB’s definition of a revenue is “Inflows or other enhancements of assets of an entity or settlements of its liabilities during a period from delivering or producing goods, rendering services, or other activities that constitute the entity's ongoing major or central operations.” A common-sense explanation is that revenue is recognized when it is “earned and receivable.” Delivery is normally the time period in which revenue is recognized. There are three exceptions. If the collection of cash is highly uncertain, revenue is recorded at the time cash is received. If the level of returns is highly uncertain, revenue is recognized when the right to......

...Chapter 2/Fundamental Economic Concepts Chapter 2 Fundamental Economic Concepts Solutions to Exercises 1. The number of checked bags should fall, as individuals internalize the external cost of added weight. However, the average weight should rise, as those checking bags would in all likelihood pack as much as possible to make up for the cost. 2. The wage in the market for oil spill cleanup efforts should rise, thanks to an increase in demand for labor. The wage in the market for similarly-skilled labor should also fall, as the relevant labor supply falls in response to the previous increase in wage. We would expect an increase in migration, as long as the wage of the home market was less than the wage that could be received in the Gulf region. 3. Projects A, C, G and B require a total of $875 million in investment. Project B, the lowest return project of this group is expected to generate an 18 percent rate of return. Ajax can raise up to $1,050 million, with the highest cost being 18 percent for the last $200 million. If Ajax were to choose any project beyond A, C, G, and Bsuch as project D (the next best project after B)that project would generate a marginal rate of return (16 percent), which is less than the marginal cost of funds needed to finance it, in this case 18 percent for the last $200 million up to a total of $1,050. Thus, the optimal capital budget is to invest in projects A, C, G, B, for a total of $875 million. 4. This question examines expected......

...Listening and Verbal Communication Cristina Gonzalez XCOM/200 October 19, 2014 Listening and Verbal Communication Knowing how to properly communicate with people includes being a good listener. Listening to others is a skill that requires practice and a lot of effort. Listening is more than just standing there and looking at the other person; it’s being able to fully understand their message, and where they are trying to go with it. As humans we spend more than half our time listening to others, it’s a very important social skill and one that is much needed in the working world. I consider myself a selective listener. It’s definitely not by choice it simply happens. I remember back in high school I always had a hard time listening to my teachers, especially if the topic wasn’t “interesting enough”. In fact it still happens to me at work during meeting or seminars. My biggest problem has always been spacing out. Although I make eye contact with the speaker my thoughts always tend to go elsewhere. One of my biggest barriers has always been thinking I knew the answer to whatever it was that the teacher or speaker is saying; therefore I didn’t feel the need to actually listen. My second biggest barrier has always been red flag words “Words can provoke a reaction in the listener that wasn't necessarily what the speaker intended” (Michael Webb, 2006). Whenever this happens it becomes more difficult for me to listen and stay focused. I tend to jump to conclusions,......

The first oil well (known as The Grand Old Lady) which was discovered by Shell, started with a production of 83 barrels per day (bbls/d) and reached a maximum of 15,000 bbls/d in 1929. There were no other drilling activities elsewhere in Borneo or Peninsular Malaya until the 1950s. [1, 2, 3] Petroleum activities began increasing significantly in 1960s due to the discovery and development of offshore fields in Borneo. The late 1960s saw the beginning of offshore oil exploration in the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. In the 1970s, some oil fields in Malaysia were producing 90,000 to 99,000 bbls/d. [2] In the early days, foreign oil companies dominated the oil and gas industry in Malaysia with Shell and Esso being the two major players. This was followed by several other foreign companies such as Conoco, Mobil, Aquitaine, Oceanic and Teiseki. The national company, Petronas came on to the scene......

Chapter 2 Problems 2-1) An investor recently purchased a corporate bond that yields 9%. The investor is in the 36% combined federal and state tax bracket. What is the bond’s after-tax yield? 9% (1-T) = 9%(1-.36) =5.76% 2-2) Corporate bonds issued by Johnson Corporation currently yield 8%. Municipal bonds of equal risk currently yield 6%. At what tax rate would an investor be indifferent between these two bonds? 8% (1-T) + after tax corporate yield 6% - municipal tax exempt yield 8%(1-T) = 6% 8-8T+66 2=8t T=2/8 or 25% 2-7) The Talley Corporation had a taxable income of $365,000 from operations after all operating costs but before (1) interest charges of $50,000, (2) dividends received of $15,000, (3) dividends paid of $25,000, and (4) income taxes.

Income after operating costs: $365,000.00 Less: Interest Expense -$50,000.00 Plus: Taxable Dividends Received $4,500.00 Only 30% of the $15,000 in dividends are taxable. Taxable Income: $319,500.00 $319,500 falls into the $100,000 to $335,000 bracket so the corporate tax would be: $22,250 + .39 ($319,500 - $100,000) Tax Liability = $107,855.00 Average Tax Rate = $107,855/$319,500 = 33.76% 2-9) The Shrieves Corporation has......

Difference and similarities with the previous studies are presented in this chapter. The following researches and studies greatly influence on the conduct of this study; the researchers have made consideration in drawing the final conclusion in the study. Foreign Literature Facebook is an evolutionary technology of the 21st century that changed social relationships, provides opportunity for individuals to share their ideas and opinions, and establishes and maintains relationships with others. Facebook allows a user to create a profile, display personal information, upload pictures, access other users profile, display personal information, accumulate friends, and interact with friends via messages and gifts. An average time of 30 minutes to 2 hours is spent on Facebook daily. Only recently are studies beginning to examine the effects of Facebook on physical, mental, and family health.

...COM 200 WEEK 2 A+ Graded Tutorial Available At: Visit Our website: Product Description COM 200 Week 2, The LSM analyzing communication within interpersonal relationships The article Shared Talking Styles Herald New and Lasting Romance was a very interesting article. I do believe that language style matching is a thorough way to predict the quality of interpersonal relationships in some cases. The LSM test examines the verbal connection between two people which also signify how much attention each person is paying to one another when they are conversing. As stated in the article language style matching is a form of using function words and words in other categories that relates to one another in some form or fashion. One thing I found very interesting about the article was that two people who truly hate one another will often exhibit a high amount of language-style matching,” stated by Pennebaker. He also states that “Two people locked in a bitter fight tend to talk, or yell, in similar ways.” Just based on real life experiences I would have to say this is very much true in many situations I have been faced with. There have been numerous times I have met someone and it seemed as if we were just on the same page. We thought the same way had the same outlook on life to a certain extinct and we seemed to be friends instantly but I never thought that having high language-style matching had......

...Chapter 2, Section 3 Homework Problems Part A 1. (a) § 721 does not apply to Charlie’s contribution of services because § 721 only applies to property exchanged for an interest in the partnership. Charlie must recognize compensation for services under § 61(a)(1). Since Charlie has no risk of forfeiture, Charlie includes the compensation upon receipt of the interest under § 83. The amount included in gross income is FMV of $400K. Since Charlie contributed no other money or property to obtain his partnership interest, his basis in partnership interest is the amount included in income, $400K. Treas. Reg. § 1.722-1. The partnership will have a § 162 deduction for the amount of compensation paid and as such will reduce Avery and Blair’s basis by $200k each. (b) U.S. v. Frazell held that the incoming partner will recognize ordinary income to the extent that the partnership interest was received for exchange of the services, but § 721 applies to the portion that was contributed for property. Since we are not given the value of the services and property (building plans), we can know ascertain the amount of his contribution that would be allocated to the services and what amount would qualify for non-recognition. Charlie’s partnership interest after the exchange would be a capital asset. (c) In this case, Charlie has a substantial risk of forfeiture under § 83(a) and will be taxable on any increase of the value of the partnership interest at the time the partnership interest......
