Ethics

Growing up with one brother and one sister, both older, I really had a lot of chances to interact with them and learn whatever I could from their experience. My sister is about ten years older, which made her not readily available at times. My brother on the other hand is only two years older. He and I were together all the time in adolescence.
Through our years of causing trouble and terrorizing other sets of brothers, my brother and I never had a bond like you would expect young brothers to form. I think we were more or less two individuals doing as we pleased and the other just happened to be there.
I remember several instances when Justus would seemingly put me in harms way, or take advantage of my nieveness. It always seemed like he had it out for me. The first such instance I can remember was when we were attending the YMCA?s after school program. During an open-swim session my once trust worthy brother held my legs above water making it difficult to keep my head above the water as well. After what seemed like a long

NAFTA

NAFTA

NAFTA

NAFTA, better known as the North American Free Trade Agreement, was first introduced / signed on January 1, 1994. This agreement basically was planned out to remove most barriers to trade and invest among the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This is an agreement that is loved by many and also hated for several reasons. Benefits to U.S. Agriculture and helping the Economy, in my opinion, is what NAFTA does best according to my research.
Canada and Mexico are the second and third largest export markets for U.S. agricultural products. Exports to the two markets combined are greater than exports to Japan or the 15 member European Union, which means more money for the U.S. With that being known, the positive aspects of NAFTA begin to flow in. This helped to more than double trade among the three countries, from $306 billion in 1993 to $621 billion in 2003. It also helped expand U.S. exports to Canada and Mexico from $142 billion to $263 billion during that decade. It has helped grow Mexican exports to NAFTA partners by 232 percent, or $143 billion, between 1993 and 2001. As for employment, manufacturing output increased 44 percent in the 1990?s, which increased employment

Ethics

Ethics

What are morals A big question mark that has no specific answer. All what one can hear are different ideas, but the core of it is the same. What is the core The core of these ideas or guesses of the answer is that morals are something good. But what is good for me is not necessarily good for you as well, and that?s the point. This is what makes moral controversial issue. I?ve always said that being good doesn?t mean that you are not bad, but I?ll elaborate more on this later. What makes a thing morally justified is that it is beneficial for the majority of people, for example not taking other?s belonging is morally justified act because it doesn?t harm others. But let?s imagine that the majority of people are thieves, would stealing be morally justified The answer is yes because it would be beneficial for the majority of people. It would be very hard if we tried to imagine a society where stealing is the moral act and not taking other?s belongings is the immoral one. Would you find all members of the society doing this moral act, stealing Or would be some of them immoral,

Federal Budget Deficit

Federal Budget Deficit

The Federal Budget Deficit

How in just a few years can the federal budget go from a surplus, to over six trillion dollars in debt What has happened in just a few years to cause such a substantial increase in our national debt How can we fix this dramatic problem These are all important questions that must be answered in order secure a safe future for our government and economy.
What is a budget deficit Well simply put, it is when you spend more money this month than your income. So instead of simply ceasing your spending,, you decide to borrow money, and now you have a deficit or a debt. Well, if you keep spending more than you earn and repeat this cycle over many months, before soon all you can do is pay for the interest on your loans. Therefore each month your debt is increasing, growing larger and larger. Until, one day your interest is more than you can borrow and you have to file for bankruptcy.
Why does our country, one of the richest nations in the world, have such an enormous debt Our country had a repetition of annual deficits from about 1962 to 1997. In 1997

Ethics

Ethics

The purpose of this paper is to determine the consistency of the moral and ethical value systems that guide the practices of organizations that make up the economic fabric of the nation. As scientific advancements and new technologies become readily accessible society experiences the consequences as well as the benefits. Are the decisions of individuals charged with fiscal soundness ethically neutral What is the impact to society if ethical considerations fail to keep pace with rapid scientific and technological growth Ultimately, who is responsible

Why Bother With Ethics

Because the society we live in is fundamentally based upon performance and profit, it is necessary to impart a sense of corporate social responsibility in regard to modern commerce. Purpose, principle and consequence are the vehicles of ethics in business. They are fundamental components of any organization?s social performance. Utilizing these components involves incorporating the interests of ethics and morality into the corporate structure. These are essential concepts that may be absent from a managerial standpoint. Corporate social responsibility should exist within every companys infrastructure.(1) However, social integrity is not necessarily something that is at the forefront of modern day business

Engineering Processes Class

Engineering Processes Class

Engineering Processes ? ENGR 1300

Course Objective:

Engineering Processes is a course designed to allow the student a knowledge, understanding, and exposure to the most common tools, methods, and machines used in most engineering fields. Between the two available projects, a catapult or a cannon, I chose the cannon because I though it would be more exciting and challenging. Included in the course there were also small labs were we made small random projects by welding (metal and plastic) and brazing.

CANNON PROJECT
Barrel & Base

Objective:

The purpose of this section in the course was to build an aluminum model of a typical naval cannon. In this processes, we would familiarize ourselves with machines such as the vertical miller, lathe, drill press, band saw, and horizontal miller. I learned how to operate the equipment safely completed the steps with instruction when needed.

Procedure:

I obtained a laboratory manual which outlined the entire procedure for the production of both the cannon and the catapult. It gave me step by step procedures, and measurements needed to complete the cannon. At the beginning of the project, the professor provided us with an aluminum block for the base, and an aluminum stock for the barrel. Dykem

Complex Interdependence in the World Today

Complex Interdependence in the World Today

Complex Interdependence in
The World Today

Joseph Nye raises an interesting theory of modern international relations through his concept of complex interdependence. Nye describes interdependence in an analytical sense, as ?situations in which actors or events in different parts of a system affect each other.? (Nye 179) Nye continues his definition of interdependence by stating that the results are often varied and although the potential for benefits exist, the potential for tragedy exists as well. Despite this potential for varying results Nye also notes that it is very difficult and very costly for a country to try and cut itself off from the world, such as Myanmar or Albania did.
According to Nye interdependence can be divided into four separate dimensions, which are its sources, benefits, costs, and symmetry. These dimensions can originate in both the physical and social aspects of society.
The idea of economic interdependence is an idea that cannot be disputed as a reality in this modern world. Economic interdependence is a concept that gained great popularity prior to World War I, and then again very slowly after America?s isolationist period post-World War II. According to Nye, ?economic interdependence involves policy choices about

Ethical Behavior

Ethical Behavior

From a business perspective, working under government
contracts can be a very lucrative proposition. In general, a stream of
orders keep coming in, revenue increases and the company grows in the
aggregate. The obvious downfalls to working in this manner is both
higher quality expected as well as the extensive research and
documentation required for government contracts. If a part fails to
perform correctly it can cause minor glitches as well as problems that
can carry serious repercussions, such as in the National Semiconductor
case. When both the culpable component and company are found, the
question arises of how extensive these repercussions should be. Is the
company as an entity liable or do you look into individual employees
within that company From an ethical perspective one would have to
look at the mitigating factors of both the employees and their
superiors along with the role of others in the failure of these
components. Next you would have to analyze the final ruling from a
corporate perspective and then we must examine the macro issue of
corporate responsibility in order to attempt to find a resolution for
