...Q1. Is maximizing the firm’s profit the only way to maximizing shareholder wealth? Should the firm’s management do anything and everything to maximize shareholder wealth? Suggested Solution: Minimizing costs can also be one of the goals of corporations. Other firms may choose to maximize market share, hoping that these will eventually increase the total profits in the future. Ultimately, the choices financial managers make should maximize shareholder wealth, which is achieved by maximizing the stock price. While the managers should do their best in maximizing the shareholders’ wealth, they should ensure that their behavior is ethical. Ultimately, the owners will only benefit if the business is operated within the legal and ethical limits. Q2. What is a limited partnership? Briefly explain what are the advantages and disadvantages of being a general partner and a limited partner. Suggested Solution: A Limited Partnership (LP) is a vehicle for doing business and is a subset of partnership. It is a partnership consisting of a minimum of two partners, with at least one general partner and at least one limited partner. An LP does not have a separate legal entity from the partners i.e. it cannot sue or be sued or own property in its own name.   A general partner is liable for all debts and obligations of the LP. This is unfavorable to the GP but he or she has control over the operations of the business. The......

To Do or Not to Do

...Draft: Critique Paper To Do or Not to Do? : A Critique of "Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem Do we do it or do we not do is always the big question, is it not? In the article “Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem”, Erich Fromm explains how society has always defined “obedience is a virtue and that disobedience is a vice” (p. 683). As a well known writer and thinker, Psychoanalyst, philosopher, historian and sociologist, Fromm believed that “human history began with an act of disobedience, and it is not unlikely that it will be, terminated by an act of obedience” (p. 683). How many of us have done something without even thinking about it simply because we were told to do it? That is exactly where Fromm is going with this article. Are we doing something because we are told to or are we doing it because we are scared of what may happen if we don’t? But is that always the right answer? Although Fromm’s ideas were organized and the evidence he used to support his argument was effective, the counter argument is missing. Fromm is trying to get us to understand that by man being introduced to the world by disobedience, whether it be from Adam and Eve or Prometheus, we now have to answer to a authority figure, which in return having to obey to that authority figure will end the world. Fromm’s fear and worry is just that. If we get in the habit and routine of doing something simply because we are told to do it, what is going to......

...The Basic Parts The Basic Parts There are just five basic parts in a radio frequency communication system. These are: * Antenna * Amplifier * Filter * Mixer * Source These five parts are then put together to do one of two basic functions: transmit or receive. The name of the resulting device is a radio. The radio also may go by many other names based on marketing considerations or its specific role in the wireless network. A radio is used to send and receive a signal that flows through the air as a series of electromagnetic waves. Radios can take on many different forms. As such, it is not always easy to identify them. When transmitting or receiving, the goal is to produce a perfect sine wave, of the exact size required, at only one frequency. A block diagram of the basic parts looks like the following. For a transmitter: This diagram shows a conceptual layout of a typical transmitter. Included in it are six elements. They are, in order: source, amplifier, source, mixer, filter, high-power amplifier, and antenna. For a transmitter, the signal is generated by the source. The mixer changes the frequency of the signal. The filter removes undesired frequencies. The amplifier increases the signal. The antenna transforms the electrical current into a radio wave. The other amplifier provides the electrical signal. It also feeds into the mixer. For a receiver: This diagram shows a conceptual layout of a typical receiver. Included in it are......

...Back to Basics: Preventing Surgical Site Infections Chamberlain College of Nursing Back to Basics: Preventing Surgical Site Infections When going into a hospital for surgery, people do not think about the chances of becoming more ill due to a surgical site infection. People generally worry about the surgery itself and trust the fact that the staff performing the surgery and the staff caring for the surgical site are well trained to do so. Most people do not know what takes place to ensure the safety of the patients and the training that the staff must go through to prevent surgical site infections. With patient safety being a major concern in healthcare settings, we are looking at surgical site infections; what they are and how to help prevent them. Article Review According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a surgical site infection (SSI) is defined as “an infection that occurs after surgery in the part of the body where the surgery took place” (CDC, 2012). With healthcare facilities trying to close the gap in preventable infections, many pieces of literature can be researched. The Back to Basics’ Preventing Surgical Site Infections article outlines interventions that are in place and that have been updated to help with reducing these infections. The author, put together a compiled list of perioperative interventions and the research that has gone into each one, along with any updates that the Joint Commission the National Institute for Health......

Economics Basics

...Economics Basics: Introduction Economics may appear to be the study of complicated tables and charts, statistics and numbers, but, more specifically, it is the study of what constitutes rational human behavior in the endeavor to fulfill needs and wants. As an individual, for example, you face the problem of having only limited resources with which to fulfill your wants and needs, so, with your money, you must make certain choices. You'll probably spend part of your money on rent, electricity, and food. Then you might use the rest to go to the movies and/or buy a new pair of jeans. Economists, interested in the choices you make, inquire into why, for instance, you might chose to spend your money on a new DVD player instead of a replacing your old TV. They would want to know whether you would still buy a carton of cigarettes if prices increased by $2 per pack. The underlying essence of economics is trying to understand how both individuals and nations behave in response to certain material constraints. We can say then that economics, often referred to as the “dismal science,” is a study of certain aspects of society. Adam Smith (1723 - 1790), the “father of modern economics” and author of the famous book An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, spawned the discipline of economics by trying to understand why some nations prospered while others lagged behind in poverty. Others after him also explored how a nation's allocation of resources affects its......

Do Apes Deserve Basic Rights

...MODR 1730, Debate 1: June 5th 2014 Topic: Discuss that apes and other higher primates ought to be afforded limited rights; to do otherwise is speciesism. Arguments For Apes Getting Limited Rights If apes can be defined and categorized as persons, then they are to be given equal consideration and limited basic rights such as the right not to suffer from cruel treatment (i.e. in medical experiments). To argue otherwise would be speciesism, which can be defined as a prejudice towards the interests of one's own species and against those of members of other species. Main points as to why apes can be defined as persons: 1. Some scientists have linked the 5 great apes into 1 biologically similar group (chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans, bonobos, and humans). Humans are just another type of ape. Humans and chimpanzees are 99% identical genetically (in respects to blood type, brain structure) and they demonstrate identical behavior for the first three years. 2. According to Kant, humans are self-conscious and rational, whreas animals are not and that is why we have no direct duties to animals themselves, but rather only to humans. However scientists have found that all 5 apes (this includes humans) are self aware and morally aware, as displayed in behavior. For example, if you place a dot on a chimpanzee, they are able to recognize that and realize it does not belong. This shows that they are self aware. Moreover, by observing Kanzi, the bonobo, we can see......

...Abstract In this paper I will discuss my experience in basic training for two and a half months. To get a true understanding I will explain some of my adventures, what I learned, and how I felt at the end. I will also be discussing how I got through some of the rougher times, and what I did to cope as well as my views towards the beginning and end of basic training. My ending thoughts will sum up my overall assessment of my time in basic training, and whether or not I would go through it again. Basic Training : A life changing event Walking off the bus, with all my bags in tow, I remember a knot forming in my stomach looking around at all the action going on. It was my first day on my journey, reception, where I would go through medical testing, basic formalities, and get a glimpse of what was to come. I quickly learned what was acceptable and what was not, how to stand, speak, and show signs of “respect”, which seemed like I was in school all over again. After about a week in reception, I was moved to my actual basic training unit, and assigned to my platoon. Up until now I was still able to speak to my family every day, but we were now being told we were to give up all electronic device, and had less then a min to call and say goodbye, and make sure to give them any information needed, including the mailing address. I remember the whole time in the background the drill sergeants yelling to hurry and get off the phone, and my mother especially worried, even......

...Hi Class, Please let me know specifically if there are problems you are having trouble understanding.  If it is just the overall basic principles of accounting, we can go through them until you get the idea. Below is a brief overview: The financial position of a company is measured by the following items: 1. Assets (what it owns) 2. Liabilities (what it owes to others) 3. Owner’s Equity (the difference between assets and liabilities) The accounting equation (or basic accounting equation) offers us a simple way to understand how these three amounts relate to each other. The accounting equation for a sole proprietorship is: Assets = Liabilities + Owner’s Equity The accounting equation for a corporation is: Assets = Liabilities + Stockholders’ Equity If a company keeps accurate records, the accounting equation will always be “in balance,” meaning the left side should always equal the right side. The balance is maintained because every business transaction affects at least two of a company’s accounts. For example, when a company borrows money from a bank, the company’s assets will increase and its liabilities will increase by the same amount. For instance, if the company borrows $10,000, Cash (a normal debit balance account) would be increased (debited, left side) for $10,000, and Notes Payable (this is a normal credit balance account) would be increased for $10,000 (credited, right side). The entry in the General Journal (the record of all...
