2/12/13 The United States would be much safer if only government officials were allowed to own guns. The public would not need any protection for themselves even if they come across a situation where they need some type of self-defense. I mean, that is why they have martial arts and boxing lessons’ right? It is certainly going to work even if someone is trying to kill you and has more strength than you. But on the other hand, it would be much easier if we did have a gun with us and only use it when it is needed to be used. Guns do not kill people, people do. The second amendment states the right to bear arms, so why choose to go against it. I would feel like the government does not even go by their set of rules. Besides defending yourself by knowing any type of martial arts, there are other options. They have things such as knives, forks, bats, pepper spray, hairspray, and even sling shots. I would prefer to use a sling shot since it would be the closest thing they have to a gun. I am not sure if it would help if I was to be in a dangerous situation but it would be the only thing I can possibly use for defense. I doubt it would help if I was to be up again more than two people but it would be worth a try. That is what I would do, but what about other people? How far would they go to feel safe or to protect themselves? Other than protection, how creative would murderers get to kill someone without using a gun, most crimes are committed without even having a firearm. Just how many drugs are illegal, people still manage to get a hold of them. Besides drug trafficking there would also be gun trafficking. There would have to be more caution on what is brought into the country and what is already here. Crime rate would actually go up rather than stay at a low rate. That is good though, we need a high crime rate. The owners of gun shops would have…...

Payroll Processing

...Date: Tue, 12 FEB 2008 07:01:02 +0000 From: "Karina Ramirez" Subject: Payroll Info Here is the information you requested on our payroll processing: 1. All hourly employees (clerical and warehouse personnel) are paid biweekly (every 10 workdays) based on hours recorded on time cards maintained by a time clock machine. The time cards are approved by the supervisors. The supervisors take the approved time cards to the payroll department. Salaried employees also are paid biweekly based on a salary schedule approved by the finance committee of the board of directors. 2. The personnel department must approve all new hires, terminations, and hourly rate changes. Forms for each of these actions also are approved by appropriate supervisors and are kept in the personnel office. The personnel clerks notify payroll of the changes by a “payroll change” document. 3. The payroll department maintains the individual employees’ payroll records and the forms signed by employees for all pay deductions. 4. Every two weeks, Martha, a clerk in the payroll department, prepares the payroll register (multicopy) from the time cards and the information of the individual payroll records. Martha uses a “write-it-once” system that also prepares a form indicating gross pay, each deduction, net pay, and year-to-date totals. Martha calls this form the “take-home sheet.” Willie, a second clerk, checks Martha’s work and recalculates the gross pay and all deductions. 5. Two copies of the payroll......

Myself and I

...My name is Karina. I was born and raised in the beautiful country of Kazahstan, which is located in the Central Asia and was the part of the former Soviet Union. I finished High School there and attended four-year college for about two years. I was majoring in Customs Law, but I didn't finish it, because my mother won a lottery Green-card (permanent residence in USA) and we decided to move to America. I have only one older brother. His name is Ulan. Hi is 30 years old. We are very close to each other, although he is four years older than I am. Unfortunately, he is not here with us right know, because according to the US law, children over 21 years old are not eligible for the green- card, so he stayed in Kazahstan. My father died a year ago of stroke. He was just 54 years old. I still can not believe that he is gone. I still miss him and he will always be in my heart. I and my mother came to the United States four years ago. We live together in Brooklyn. She is very strong and good person. She is the one who influenced me to go to the college. English is not my first language, so I was afraid that I wouldn't do well at school. She kept saying to me that I'll do well and that she believes in me. And here I'm at the LaGuardia Community College today, majoring in Paralegal studies. This is my third semester here. Now I feel more confident about myself, because I passed all courses that I have been taking and received good grades and try to do my best to keep doing it. I'm a......

Ada Case

...Due to Karina having a medical condition that requires her to take steroids, I would deem her disabled under the ADA. Karina taking these steroids and other medications has made her body gain weight making her unable to wear the uniform properly, the stockings and heels. Due to her condition she has back, circulatory system, and endurance problems throughout the day. According to Karina’s doctor, her condition prevents her from wearing the stocking and heels. Karina is technically disabled due to her condition. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prevents any discrimination against those who are challenged physically due to disability, which would be Karina. Although her symptoms do not prevent her from performing her daily work activities. Her employer cannot hold against her the fact that she has to take this medication to relieve her pain. If Karina’s employer is willing to compromise with her about a solution that will accommodate her and her medical condition then she will able to still hold her position in the front of the store and working the register as she is required to do. The company could allow Karina to wear flat black shoes or black tennis shoes with black slacks to show that she is an employee. Due to the company knowing about Karina’s condition they should have to make accommodations for her. In Karina’s case having her wear a different type of uniform, slacks, flats, tennis shoes, will not hurt the company in any way it will just allow for......

Evaluation Essay

...I am a student at a Community College. I am currently enrolled in a speech class. In this speech class, we were required to present a persuasive speech. This fourteenth of November, I evaluated a speech given by a classmate, Karina Cervantes. Ms. Cervantes chose to speak about Electronic Distractions while driving. My evaluation of her speech will determine its effectiveness. If the speaker hopes to give an effective speech, they must know how to choose a topic. Topic selection is an important element to giving a successful speech. In selecting a topic, the speaker should be required in knowing the audience’s likes and dislikes. Doing so should help the speaker catch the audience’s attention. As mentioned before, Ms. Cervantes chose Electronic Distractions while driving as her topic. Ms. Cervantes spoke about the dangers of being distracted while driving. She was able to provide both problems and solutions of her topic. Her speech was sturdy as she gave her own real life experience, and consequences that appeared within. Being organized while preparing and giving a speech helps both the speaker and the audience. To have an organized speaker helps the audience maintain the information more clearly. An organize speech not only looks professional, but also helps the speaker follow a guide. Ms. Cervantes followed a guideline and organized her speech dividing it in sections. Her introduction had an exceptional attention getter. Starting off her speech with the words, “Could......

The Schools of Today

...Why Does The Location of School Affect Academic Performance? Written and Directed by Abigail Torres, Karina De La Rosa, Virginia Osueke, and Yamileth Maldonado. Virginia Osueke: The state of Texas faces a big problem with dropout rates. HISD is the largest school district in Houston and is ranked the seventh largest in the nation. HISD has not been able to solve the problem but tries to find ways and strategies to fix it. It is sad that due to the location of a school for example, a school in a low economic area student will perform lower than average because the parents are less educated and students have problems to deal with at home causing them to be absent or they are less involved and less engaging in their own education. When students live in poverty and go to the school in which they reside or their zoned school the school may not have lots of funding or may have poor infrastructure. The students may be cheated of their education because they are not learning what they should learn in the correct grade level. Some students who may be doing exceptionally well may go to college with scholarships only to find out that their level of education is lower than the recommended level they should have. This can cause student to drop out or have future college problems. When schools are not adequately funded students are not able to get the best resource and learn two or three grade levels below their actual grade level. Some believe that maybe teachers are the main......

Apollo Shoes

...strike is looming, and one of Apollo Shoes’ largest customers is suffering some financial difficulties. Because of busy season, there is little help, other than from an untrained intern. While the intern can do “grunt work,” such as vouching and gathering information for you, he appears incapable of preparing workpapers, making adjusting entries, or even getting good coffee and doughnuts. Assistance does come in the form of an objective, competent internal audit staff. Communication between client personnel and other firm members takes the form of e-mail messages from the engagement partner (Arnold Anderson), the engagement manager (Darlene Wardlaw), the intern (Bradley Crumpler), and the director of Apollo’s internal audit department (Karina Ramirez). Required assignments and memos are in bold print. Page indexing suggestions are given, but feel free to adjust page numbering as you see fit. The AOW intranet website (http://www.mhhe.com/louwers6e/) has many useful resources such as a repository of electronic documents (so that you won’t need to input data or retype documents) and an archive of e-mail messages and their attachments, all filed by account group. While we tried to make the case as realistic as possible, limitations remain. Since you are unable to follow up directly with client personnel, you may need to rely on some evidence with which you may be uncomfortable. In an actual audit, you would be able to inquire, observe, and otherwise follow-up on......

20 Seconds

...Max Britt Dr. Kurt Steinbaugh 20 Seconds of Joy In my Freshmen Seminar class, my class has been watching several different documents involving extreme sports and giving our opinion about each one. Today we watched a documentary about a woman named Karina Hollekim who is a famous base jumping from Sweden. At first I thought it was not that extreme of a sport but after watching the film, it totally changed my opinion. A sport where one little mistake could end your life right then and there and why people do this sport just amazes me. The film is all about this one particular jumper who is a female named Karina Hollekim that is, in my opinion, nuts simply because she just goes out and just jumps off cliffs like it’s nothing! According to a base jumping website, the chances of dying while base jumping is 1 in every 2,300 jumps! When Karina was asked about if she just does not care about death, she responds with “I don't want to die. I want to live. I am pretty good at running away and B.A.S.E. jumping is my escape." It is evident that she is just simply addicted to base jumping and the adrenaline rush it gives while performing the sport. The video continues to show video of Karina base jumping until one day she faces a traumatic base jumping accident where she ends up basically destroying her whole right leg in the accident. Doctors said that she would never be able to walk again, but with her determination and support from others, she would recover but with a metal rod......

Death Penalty

...Capital Punishment: Why Death Penalty Is Morally Permissable Capital Punishment: Why the Death Penalty is Morally Permissible Karina Morgan April 13, 2010 Professor Mark Reynolds PHI 206 Sec. 04 Word Count: 1,910 Syllogism for Argument: 1. Every human has a right to life 2. But this right is not absolute because a person’s life can be overridden for good reasons 3. So the right of life does not hold in every situation no matter what 4. One of these situations includes taking the life of another innocent human 5. Therefore, it is morally permissible to set the right to life aside, and use the death penalty, if they took the life of an innocent human. Outline I. The Death Penalty -Thesis- Although all humans have the right to life, there are certain situations that can overrule this right, such as taking the life of an innocent human. Since the right of life does not hold in every situation and if an innocent human’s life is taken, then it is morally permissible to set the right to life aside and use the death penalty on the person who committed murder. II. Pro-Death Penalty A. Retribution a. The death penalty is the best way in order to serve justice to convicted murderers of innocent people. b. The families and friends of victims will feel more secure if justice is served. c. There will be no worry about the murderer being able to commit more murders or to have any chance of receiving parole. B. Deterrence ...

...Laura Karina Cardenas CCJ 250 9:10 February 1st, 2016 Assignment #1 When asking a group of people to define what crime is, you are going to get a variety of answers because everyone has a different option or perspective of what crime really is. Some may say that crime is as extreme as taking someone’s life while others might think it’s something less extreme like getting a speeding ticket or even littering. I don’t think any crime is too irrelevant or too extreme, committing a crime is committing a crime pain and simple. If I could define crime in my own words I would say that crime is any action that doesn’t follow the guidelines of social norms or an act that is looked down upon or prohibited that could potentially get you arrested or even put in prison. My definition is based more off moral harm because to me if you have to think to yourself, “Should I be doing this?” or “Is this a bad idea?” that should be your red flag to stop whatever you were going to do and not do it. I don’t understand how people have the ability to take another human beings life. That alone goes against many people’s personal moral beliefs. Morals are like a code of conduct set up by society to keep things or chaos in order and I believe that if you cross that line, that would define a crime. But I also believe that some crimes are based of the degree of danger to society. For example, drinking and driving not only is it morally wrong to do because you could put yourself in danger but you......

Nike Case Analysis

...Karina Bezerra BusMgt 799 Prof. Brian Saxton May 15, 2012 Nike Case Analysis Nike is a sneaker company based in Beaverton, Oregon. It has a great aptitude to influence customers with its fashion trends and to astonishingly increase its profits. It was founded by the athlete Philip Knight (Nike’s CEO) and his coach Bill Bowerman in January 1964 from the University of Oregon. By 1970 Nike had pushed its revenue drastically from $60,000 to staggering $49 million. Few years after that, the company went Public what accounted for an unstoppable growth. By 1998 Nike had over 40% of the U.S. athletic footwear market. Knight’s main strategy for differentiate themselves over their competitors was based on a simple formula: to outsource its production over cheaper contractors and the capital saved is invested back into the business for marketing purposes. Knight also believes that the firm should invest in celebrity endorsements, so to make the company identity strong as well as to serve as the company image. In order to follow its strategy of outsourcing for cheap producing, Nike shifted its manufacturing to firms in South Korea and Taiwan. However, as these two countries developed it became pricey to leave operations in these locations. Rapidly manufacturers moved their facility to cheaper countries such as, Indonesia and China. Though Nike was experiencing the excitement moment of its existence with incredible growth and brand image, it found itself trapped in a wave of labor......

Employment Law

...disability so as to continue their employment. In this instance with Karina as the employee it is not for me to determine her disability, so I would first have her bring in her medical records or doctor’s statement stating what her condition or disability is to determine what course of action needs to be implemented to accommodate her situation. According to the ADA Karina has a valid case and is determined to be disabled under the ADA policy. Since Karina has been forthcoming regarding her condition and has expressed her desire to continue working with the company, as the employer I would try to find the best way to accommodate her request. From this I would speak with Karina to discuss what she feels her capabilities or limitations are to determine whether or not she can continue to fulfill her obligations and how we both can move forward. I would then look into her evaluations and performance over the past years that she has worked with the company, then consider her current job skills and find out whether or not she is qualified for any other open positions (if there are any) in the company so that she could make a lateral move that would accommodate her situation. In the event that there are no other positions open at the time then I would try to implement some type of training for her to go through so as to be transferred to an alternate position or department. In the interim of this transitional phase Karina could go out on a flexible leave, short term disability and......
