In a race and ethnicity column titled “And Now; Anti Semitism”, published in December 2010, The Nation columnist Jonathan Schell described Glen Beck as the latest in a cabal of deranged demagogues hyping anti-Semitism sentiments in the modern day. The repudiation follows the accusation by the leading Fox News commentator that Soros was running a shadowy government whose mandate was to topple the American political system. Jonathan pits Beck in a long line of conservative demagogues, who include entertainers such as Michel Savage and Rush Limbaugh. The writer also accused Beck of injecting the most virulent and dangerous accusations into the American
Enron Corporation “I don’t want to be rich. I want to be World Class Rich!” -Kenneth Lay, former Chair & CEO, Enron Corporation After the shadow of the September 11, 201 terrorist attacks the fall of Enron in 2001-2002 astonished the business community, infuriate the public, and stunned the politicians who viewed Enron as representing the best corporate America. This is when the infamous Enron scam was unveiled, which eventually led to bankruptcy of Enron Corporation, an American based energy company. According to Edward Schein,, the organisational culture at Enron was a major reason for ethical misbehaviour amongst its employees specifically, top management. The leaders of an organisation play a critical role in shaping the organisations’s culture.
That is a wait and see question, but the American voters have spoken loudly that they have no confidence in the current career politicians. And yet instead of listening to the American voters, the Republican Party desperately attempted to discredit the desires of the American voters, whom the career politicians were elected to represent and substitute their own desires. Is that anymore corrupt or dishonest than the numerous scandals effecting the country in the past eight years? How anything can be more disingenuous and in-american than engaging in activities, such as we have seen once Donald Trump received the necessary votes to be the candidate, than disregarding the wishes and votes of the American
cabinet official served jail time for a felony committed while in office. The government had set aside oil-rich public lands at Teapot Dome, Wyoming, and Elk Hills, California, for use by the U.S. Navy. Albert Fall secretly leased the land to two private oil companies. Although Fall claimed that these contracts were in the government’s interest, he suddenly received more than $400,000 in “loans, bonds, and cash.” He was later found guilty of bribery and became the first American to be convicted of a felony while holding a cabinet post. As a result, the problem with the Teapot Dome Scandal was that after Harding’s administration became corrupt with bribery.
Dees, the founder of The Million Moms March pressed their claim and development by using emotions as a strategy to gain support and head way for the initial protest. Maney et al. (2012) identified that “emotions, identity, ideology, power, social inequalities, technology, mobilization structures, and dynamics- all matter in the
Plagiarism became a crime in the 18th century, at a time when authenticity was valued. We still face acts of plagiarism in the modern day world. For example, journalist Fareed Zakaria was suspended from The Magazine and CNN in 2012 because he plagiarized a paragraph from a New Yorker article.  Without doubt, there is more than one single reason for plagiarizing. Some people do it for the money.
We hear news reports on Obamacare being despised by Republicans, or House Republicans promising to veto any form of gun control. We hear Democrats blaming Republicans for legislative stagnation and the rise in unemployment. The main effect of these occurrences is known as party polarization, a phenomenon in the United States where the two main political parties are seen as polar opposites of each other and therefore highly discouraged from collaborating or uniting. Party polarization causes a person’s political beliefs and ideals to be defined by the political party they identify with. There are many reasons for this devotion to a party’s political standpoints, such as regional and/or cultural differences, the desire for an increase in each party’s power and influence by special interest groups, and the general narrowing of political parties into the two-party system.
ABC Company has ordered several thousand light bulbs from XYZ Company. ABC ordered specialty light bulbs to be used in special heating lamps they produce. These lamps require 250 watt bulbs, but XYZ sends 150 watt bulbs. The mistake delays the shipment of several thousand heating lamps, resulting in losses to ABC Company. This happens in big corporations and business transactions; ABC Company has every right to proceed on litigation if XYZ fails to do the following; a) Pay hefty compensation to ABC for not being straightforward as a big brand,150 watts is not same as 250 watts; it’s not as a result of mistake but a deliberate attempt to shortchange ABC company.
On Wednesday September 30th the House of Representatives passed a temporary spending bill. President Obama has signed that bill to avoid a government shutdown over the issue of defunding Planned Parenthood to cut spending. Planned Parenthood is the nations largest abortion provider, which is the reason why Republicans want to defund it, along with a recent video leak by anti- abortionist republicans of officials apart of Planned Parenthood discussing the illegal sale of fetal tissue. The video was said to be edited and the group denied any illegal activity. Planned Parenthood receives about twelve percent of its $528.4 million dollars from the government through grants and reimbursements from a law called Title X.
In the following quote from the Homestead strike reading is a reflection of what happened, “The Battle at Homestead will be remembered as an occasion where human greed and civil rights collided and neither one came out on top” The Homestead strike made the Industrial Revolution more harmful because it lost many lives that didn’t need to be lost. Carnegie company was one of the richest ever and it couldn’t afford to give poor men and women a small pay raise. Also, they created a horrible situation by sending in the Pinkertons to do their dirty work. The amazing thing is that Frick had a huge mansion ten miles away but he still had to starve families. In conclusion, the violent labor disputes made the industrial revolution more harmful and lost unnecessary
The use of arbitration by the companies is the latest frontier in a legal strategy orchestrated by corporations in recent years. By inserting arbitration clauses into the fine print of consumer contracts, they have found a way to block access to the courts and ban class-action lawsuits, the only realistic way to bring a case against a deep-pocketed corporation. Their strategy traces to a pair of Supreme Court decisions in 2011 and 2013 that enshrined the use of class-action bans in arbitration
He had to deal with the mistrust of a nation and Congress which will make a term in office very difficult. His stubbornness and independence put him in a sticky position that made him unfit to be president. Not to mention, the way he dealt with economic and domestic decisions doing nothing but harm and further damage where our nation was at. Lastly, his foreign affairs―Iran Hostage Crisis, Panama Canal, stirring the pot with his allies, and Soviet tension―weren’t the wisest ways he could’ve handled the problem. Though he saved the energy crisis and the Camp David Accords, his mistakes and damage he has done made Jimmy Carter the worst president that America has seen.
Just recently the TSA has proved the ineffectiveness of its new regulations when a report, regarding the TSA’s debacle, was leaked. According to Kriston Capps, a writer at CityLab, in his article ‘Airport Security: Astoundingly Expensive and 95 Percent Ineffective,’ Airline security is 95 percent ineffective. All the public wanted was just one story to support their theory and ABC news provided that when it reported that TSA agents failed detestably, when members of the US Department of Homeland Security easily went passed airport security, carrying fake explosives. According to Capps’ article, “with the TSA not doing its job, airport security is a total waste of resources.” He furthers shares that “Airport security is especially expensive when it doesn’t work at all,” further bashing the TSA for the recent mishap. It may be argued that one instance does not prove the total ineffectiveness of the agency, especially when in several years, there has not been any reported attacks such as 9/11.
One way that the Treaty of Versailles treated Germany harshly was the way that it reduced their army. After the date of March 31, 1920, Germany wasn’t allowed to have over one hundred thousand soldiers in its army, (Doc B) Germany would more than likely be furious because what if they were attacked? They felt vulnerable to everyone. France is right next to Germany, and refuse to let them have any military forces at the border. (Doc A) Germany is even more defenseless and they have to obey by what France tells them.
Last year the Commision determined that the PCI certification didn 't demonstrate reasonable security in the case of an incident involving ID theft protection company LifeLock. The company was under order since 2010, when it settled a complaint about exaggerated advertising claims. LifeLock was ordered to pay $100 million in December in order to settle Federal Trade Commission contempt charges for violating the terms of the 2010 court order. Still, Ohlhausen claimed that the Commission lacked convincing evidence of a breach and thinks that the FTC approached the situation from the wrong angle. This is the reason for which the agency is trying to learn more about PCI-DSS and it has already requested information from nine PCI certification companies on how they carry out audits and the assessment process which determines who can get certified.
