1. what are the ethical responsibilities of scientists? Are they responsible for everything they create?
Scientists have the responsibility to stay with their discoveries and inventions until the very end. By this, I mean that if a scienctist has an idea for and invention that he or she wishes to create, they have the responsibility of making sure their invention is actually used for that purpose, or for any good purpose. With great power comes great responsibility. Scientist's knowledge gives them great power, and they must use it responsibly. If they are working on a project that could potentially be very harmful in the wrong hands, then the scienctist has the responsibility to either make sure the prodect won't end up in the wrong hands, or to not make the product at all. Enabling great evil is just as bad as directly commiting great evil.

2. Is a factory owner who makes tires that are used on military vehicles just as ethically responsible as scientists who make a weapon?
It depends on the situation. If the factory owner produces tires that are only used for military vehicles and nothing else, and if the war is an unjust war, then the factory owner is as ethically responsible as the scientist. If a war that is unjust is being faught and the factory owner doesn't refuse to sell the tires to the military, then he is ethically responsible. However, if these tires are used for good as well, he is not as responsible as the scientist who makes a weapon. Weapons can only be used for destruction, so the scientist knows for a fact that they are enabling the destruction of thousands of lives.

3. did Haber make the correct decision in helping Germany to create chemical weapons?
No, he did not. He could have continued to do great work that saved lives such as making great new fertilizers; instead, he decided to change in his life saving work…...

Tesis Benchmarking

...alternativa estratégica” Para empezar, se comenzó a preguntar a los proveedores, que en muchos casos son comunes a ambas compañías. Se lograba averiguar qué productos y servicios compraba el competidor y a qué costo, si éste conseguía mejores precios debido a su alto poder de negociación. Otra parte del Benchmarking se realizó a través de lo que se llama ingeniería reversa de los productos: es decir, descubrir cómo fabrica la competencia y con qué estándares de calidad se maneja (en este ejemplo: tipo de tabaco, calidad de papel, filtros, etc.). También fueron muy importantes las entrevistas dentro de la propia empresa que encargó el relevamiento. Por lo general, en los gremios de una misma industria suele haber mucho diálogo y el personal de una planta habitualmente conoce cómo trabajan las otras o si compraron nuevas máquinas. Además, existe un valor oculto frecuentemente desaprovechado: los ex empleados de la competencia que ahora trabajan para la compañía. Luego de realizar este análisis comparativo entre las compañías, Nobleza logró comprender cómo funcionaba su competidor más directo y entendió cómo éste lograba tener un 16% más de participación en el mercado. El resultado de este Benchmarking comparativo logró incrementar su participación un 4%, lo cual significa una suma de dinero muy importante, considerando el gran volumen de ventas que se maneja en este mercado tan competitivo. 9 Benchmarking Funcional ......

Haber Process

...The catalyst The catalyst is actually slightly more complicated than pure iron. It has potassium hydroxide added to it as a promoter - a substance that increases its efficiency. The pressure The pressure varies from one manufacturing plant to another, but is always high. You can't go far wrong in an exam quoting 200 atmospheres. Recycling At each pass of the gases through the reactor, only about 15% of the nitrogen and hydrogen converts to ammonia. (This figure also varies from plant to plant.) By continual recycling of the unreacted nitrogen and hydrogen, the overall conversion is about 98%. Explaining the conditions The proportions of nitrogen and hydrogen The mixture of nitrogen and hydrogen going into the reactor is in the ratio of 1 volume of nitrogen to 3 volumes of hydrogen. Avogadro's Law says that equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of molecules. That means that the gases are going into the reactor in the ratio of 1 molecule of nitrogen to 3 of hydrogen. That is the proportion demanded by the equation. In some reactions you might choose to use an excess of one of the reactants. You would do this if it is particularly important to use up as much as possible of the other reactant - if, for example, it was much more expensive. That doesn't apply in this case. There is always a down-side to using anything other than the equation proportions. If you have an excess of one reactant there......

Proceso Haber/Bosch

...Producción de Amoniaco por el proceso Haber–Bosch Introducción A continuación se dará a conocer el método Haber- Bosch y su empleo para la producción del Amoniaco. Para comenzar se dará una descripción detallada del Amoniaco el cual es el producto a producir, y posteriormente daremos paso a conocer la historia. En la historia del Proceso veremos cómo es que tanto Fritz Harber como Carl Bosch colaboraron en esto y como es que todo comenzó. Tras haber obtenido esta información básica, daremos paso a la descripción completa y detallada del proceso Haber-Bosch. Amoniaco El amoniaco es un compuesto químico el cual consiste de un átomo de nitrógeno y tres átomos de hidrógeno. Su geometría es piramidal trigonal, aunque en una solución acuosa podría comportarse como base y así ser un tetraedro. Sin embargo a temperatura ambiente el amoniaco es un gas. Este gas se disuelve con facilidad en agua y se evapora. El amoniaco resulta ser un producto riesgoso para nuestra salud. Su ingestión, inhalación, así como el contacto con la piel u ojos podrían traer grandes consecuencias tales como: vómito, irritaciones, quemaduras y daños permanentes. El amoniaco puede ser utilizado como fertilizante, ya que su uso aumenta los niveles que existen en el suelo de hidrógeno. También puede ser utilizado como producto de limpieza y se le conoce como un fuerte desengrasante, el cual ayuda a retirar manchas. La cantidad que producimos cada año de amoniaco es igual a la cantidad producida por la......

Gestalt

...and error. Kohler was able to determine that the apes generated an “interconnection based on the properties of the things themselves” (Driscoll 1993) and thus developed insight on how to get the food using the tools they had available at a given time. At the time that gestalt theory had emerged, associativist and structural school views dominated psychology and schools of thought. Essentially, they espoused “similarity and contiguity, whereby and idea of something is followed by an idea of a similar or related thing.”(SGTA, n.d.) In contrast to this ‘psychological “structurism” (Moore, Fitz 1993), the “qualities of form, meaning and value” interested Gestalt theorists. Associative theorists broke down and analyzed individual stimuli or the “elementary constituent parts” of the mind; for Gestalt theorists, the grouping of these stimuli, the viewing of the “organized wholes,”(Moore, Fitz 1993) produced a different view. Groupings were comprised of proximity, similarity, continuity, and closure. These four Gestalt principles or laws are important to conceptualize. For instance, its important to determine how a person visualizes something it makes you aware of how a person organizes and groups certain items. An example would be to organize something from good to bad and one’s perception may differ from other’s. The first of the gestalt laws is the law of proximity or the simplest condition of organization. Things are grouped in order of their nearness to each other. An......

...Business, HR and Staffing Strategy shaping the Recruitment and Selection Process Student Name Institution Instructor Date Organizations are combinations of financial physical and human resources. Human resources refer to the skill, knowledge, and ability of individuals, and their inspiration to apply them on the job (Fitz-enz, 2000). The workforce of an organization is the human resource team acquired, deployed, and retained in the pursuit of organizational results such as market share profitability and customer satisfaction (Bowen, Ledford & Nathan, 1991). Staffing is the organizational role used to construct the organization’s workforce through staffing strategy, human resource recruitment and planning, selection, and retention. An organization’s greatest asset is the staff hence having the right recruitment and selection process is vital in ensuring that the newly acquired or incoming employee becomes effective or valuable in the shortest time possible. The success of an organization relies on having a definite number of employees with precise abilities and skills. Pizza hut being part of these organizations adopted a strategic staffing plan to ensure that it remains as much effective, profitable and responsible as possible. Pizza hut has formulated a strategy with an expression of its overall mission or purpose, and established broad objectives and goals which will guide it towards the fulfillment of its mission. Underlying these goals are certain...

Birthright of Citizenship

...that is  born in the US, regardless of whether the parents were here temporarily, or illegally be considered an American citizen? The 14th Amendment states “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the States wherein they reside”, ( Spalding, 2010). The interpretation of this amendment has caused the controversy.      Those opposed to ending the clause in the Birthright Citizenship Amendment argue “The framers' intent was to create an objective basis for establishing citizenship—birth—not a subjective standard left to the whim of a majority. The United States has, for that reason, never struggled like other nations to integrate those born here” ( Fitz, 2010). These people feel that the children born here will always feel stigmatized if not accepted as an American citizen, and this will do more harm than good for our nation.      Those who seek to end this clause have a different perspective “It violates bedrock American principles and undermines the rule of law” ( Spalding, 2010).  He goes on to say that he has no problem with legal immigrants having children who are automatically given birthright citizenship, but this right should exclude illegal immigrants or temporary visitors.      I tend to agree with Spalding on this. I do not feel it is fair or beneficial to give Birthright Citizenship to any child born on American soil to an illegal immigrant. This seems to me to......

Gatsby Interpretation

...collar men of industry with no identity and no money, “obscured from sight by an impenetrable cloud.”(Fitz 27) However, the distinction comes not from wealth alone, but rather a temperament of money, or perhaps old money versus new money or no money. This is apparent when Gatsby and Nick, the narrator, converge on the idea that Daisy’s voice “is full of money.”(Fitz 127) Nevertheless, all of Gatsby’s ambitions and hopes are to cross the social boundaries, signified by the separation of Gatsby’s mansion and Daisy’s home by the bay, by becoming wealthy and in doing so earning Daisy’s love. However, this is an impossible feat; and, although he proved his capabilities and determination by accumulating a vast wealth, he was unaware of the other attributes required to achieve acceptance of the “sophisticated’ side of society. Gatsby simply did not understand that money alone would not catapult his social status, and that Daisy’s shallow heart married her not only to a world of wealth, but also reputation, forever separating her world from his. After all, she was not willing to leave her life of wealth and status with her husband Tom for Gatsby’s prosperity alone. Although “a single green light, minute and far away” was all that Gatsby needed to feel justified in his pursuit of Daisy, he simply did not know how to swim the waters of the bay that separated him from that light.(Fitz 26) Although valiant his attempt was and many Americans can identify with Gatsby’s desire, he......

...stresses the 'human' aspects of HRM. Its concerns are with communication and motivation. People are led rather than managed. They are involved in determining and realizing strategic objectives.' Human Resource Management, 4th edition goes on to consider the views of Guest and Legge and then discusses the classification of HRM models. Three American perspectives on HRM are provided from the work of Fitz-Enz, Ulrich and Pfeffer. Points to consider * A fundamental element of most rhetorical accounts of HRM is that one of the distinctive features of human resource management (as opposed to personnel management) is that it is 'holistic'. In other words it is concerned with the 'big picture' and the way that different aspects of people management fit together. * Comparing different typologies of HRM can be difficult because they do not use the same underlying logic. But does that mean that individual typologies are not of value? * Each of these commentators is a 'management guru' to some extent. They have been particularly influential in the USA in the last decade. Fitz-Enz is, perhaps, the least well-known but has been instrumental in developing the notion that HR initiatives and their results can (should?) be measured.

Importance of Business Ethics

...JAMAICA GLEANER THE IMPORTANCE OF BUSINESS ETHICS  published: Sunday | April 11, 2004 [pic] [pic] FITZ-RITSON and LOPEZ Ayanna Kirton, Staff Reporter IN RECENT years the term 'business ethics' has taken on new relevance in the wake of accounting scandals that have discredited some of the world's largest and well-respected companies. The list includes WorldCom (now MCI), Tyco International, Parmalat, and Enron whose financial executives have faced charges and possible jail time for financial misdeeds. Now, the Business Roundtable (BRT) aims to restore public confidence in Corporate America with a US$3 million initiative to educate future CEOs on business ethics. According to an article published by Business Week, on January 14, 2004, the BRT, an association of 150 chief executive officers of leading United States companies, announced it was creating a new business-ethics centre. The Business Roundtable Institute for Corporate Ethics will be housed at the University of Virginia's Darden Graduate School of Business Administration. The BRT hopes to deflect criticism of CEO excesses by developing a business school ethics curriculum as well as train executives and conduct research. Ethics education and training are important elements in the creation of ethically sensitive business cultures. In a presentation on Jamaican Business Ethics, Dr. Michael Witter, senior lecturer and head of the Department of Economics at the University of the West Indies (UWI), said to......

Fitz Paper

...The Fitzpatrick scale was developed by Thomas .B. Fitzpatrick in 1975 the scale helps predict the skins response by giving accurate analysis of skin tones. The scale also classifies their tolerance of sunlight and it can determine how some on will react to facial treatments and how likely the person is get skin cancer. Researching the Fitzpatrick scale on myself I have indicated that my skin is type V. My eye color is brownish black and the natural color of my hair is black, my skin color is light brown and I have few freckles. Also when I am in the sun I never have burned. I tan very easily and with several hours of sun exposure I often burn. My face reacts normal to the sun. When I lasted exposed myself to the sun was more than three months ago. Sometimes I expose the area to be treated to the sun. I found the Fitzpatrick scale very interesting so I did the scale on a friend named Tangela Morrison she works as a barber and is thirty-three years of age her skin is a type111 her eye color is dark brown and the color of her natural hair is dark brown her skin color is light brown and she has no freckles that are unexposed. When in the sunlight she never receives burns. Tangela has a reasonable tan when she turns brown and when exposed to the sun for several hours she sometimes turns brown. Her face acts normal when she in the sun the last time tangela was exposed her body to the sun was more than about three months ago. She never exposes the area to be treated to the sun....

De La Tierra a La Luna

...Julio Verne De la Tierra a la Luna I El Gun-Club Durante la guerra de Secesión de los Estados Unidos, se estableció en Baltimore, ciudad del Estado de Maryland, una nueva sociedad de mucha influencia. Conocida es la energía con que el instinto militar se desenvolvió en aquel pueblo de armadores, mercaderes y fabricantes Simples comerciantes y tenderos abandonaron su despacho y su mostrador para improvisarse capitanes, coroneles y hasta generales sin haber visto las aulas de West Point,(1) y no tardaron en rivalizar dignamente en el arte de la guerra con sus colegas del antiguo continente, alcanzando victorias, lo mismo que éstos, a fuerza de prodigar balas, millones y hombres. 1. Academia militar de los Estados Unidos. Pero en lo que principalmente los americanos aventajaron a los europeos, fue en la ciencia de la balística, y no porque sus armas hubiesen llegado a un grado más alto de perfección, sino porque se les dieron dimensiones desusadas y con ellas un alcance desconocido hasta entonces. Respecto a tiros rasantes, directos, parabólicos, oblicuos y de rebote, nada tenían que envidiarles los ingleses, franceses y prusianos, pero los cañones de éstos, los obuses y los morteros, no son más que simples pistolas de bolsillo comparados con las formidables máquinas de artillería norteamericana. No es extraño. Los yanquis no tienen rivales en el mundo como mecánicos, y nacen ingenieros como los italianos nacen músicos y los alemanes metafísicos...

The video, a narrative tale which features the band performing in a packed club while characters’ relationships evolve around them, showcases an ensemble cast of their friends led by actress/writer Nikki Reed (Thirteen), and Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls, Thor), Drake Bell (Drake & Josh), Paul McDonald(American Idol), Drew Seeley (Another Cinderella Story), and newcomer Alex Beh. “It also has that vibe of a big, sweaty rock show that you’d want to be at,” Taylor says. “The video invites people into the first chapter of a story that we hope inspires everyone to want to stick around for more,” says Zac. HANSON friends Michael ‘Fitz’ Fitzpatrick and Joe Karnes, from Los Angeles-based indie soul band Fitz and the Tantrums joined them on ‘Get The Girl Back’. “It’s hard to find bands whose sound and aesthetic is similar to ours,” Taylor says, “But we connected on a love of ‘60s soul and pop”. In addition the record features guest appearances from music aficionado Tom “Bones” Malone (Blues Brothers Band, David Letterman band and band leader on Saturday Night Live), who contributed horns to ‘I’ve Got Soul’ and ‘Get So Low’, and Imani Coppola who added strings to ‘Tragic Symphony’, highlighting the song’s classic Michael Jackson influence.

...the only country that they know. When a child is born and raised in the U.S. they become accustomed to the culture and society that they are raised in. To say that just because they were born here does not make them a citizen when this is all that they know is morally wrong nor does it address the illegal immigration issue. According to Marshall Fitz, creating a permanent subgroup of outcasts born in the United States who can never call it their country would weaken our nation’s social cohesion without addressing legitimate concerns posed by illegal immigration. I do not think that this proposal will be passed because of the number of people opposed to this proposal. “Another Pew study found that the public opposed by 56% to 41% (Economist, 2010). If the public does not agree with the proposal, then those in the government who do agree may want to watch out when reelection comes back around. If the government upsets the people and does not listen to their voices then they will not get the public vote to get back in office. We all know that senators and congressmen and women want to stay in their positions. References Fitz, M. (2010, August 30). Replacing the 14th amendment would not fix our immigration system.

The British Museum to Return Parthenon Marbles to Greece

...assisted in helping the people understand their culture and the way of life hence it contributed to reducing the evil acts like theft. The people ought to bind themselves by the laws and regulation of the past (Fitz Gibbon, 2005). Encyclopedic museums are being used in the prevention of visitors from entering deep into the culture of the Greeks and provide art in a wider view. It enhances the sense of culture sharing and understanding of the cultural heritage. It is still a disheartening act to display the marbles in the London museum after learning the impacts that were brought up by its removal. The removal of the sculptures led to the damage of the best-crowned achievement of humanity. I feel as if it is a moral and wise decision for the British to return the Parthenon sculptures back to the Greeks. The technological improvement of the Greece Museum ensures the protection of its collection. The geographical condition of Greece favors the return of the sculptures since the Acropolis Museum is large enough to display the marbles and provide a decent view to the public. Also, the climatic condition of the museum is fresh and favorable for the public to have fun and enjoy seeing these sculptures. It will help the public to appreciate fully the artistic nature of the place (Fitz Gibbon, 2005). The historical experience of art for people in their native land is important when trying to understand their sculptures. Therefore, the return of the marble is an essential step......

Hr Analytics

...HR Analytics According to a 2004 Workforce Management (formerly Personnel Journal) article, “In 1978—in this publication—Jac Fitz-enz proposed a radical, anti-establishment idea. Human resources activities and their impact on the bottom line could—and should—be measured. The reaction was apathy, disagreement and disbelief” (Caudron, 2004). For the past three decades Fitz-enz has, along with a growing band of kindred spirits, campaigned tirelessly to improve the state of HR measurement and to help both HR professionals and senior executives understand its importance. These efforts started out at the nuts and bolts level—creating definitions for basic HR metrics such as compensation, staffing, hiring and retention. This work laid the foundation for gathering comparable data across organizations, which in turn, enabled the benchmarking of HR metrics. Over the years, a number of scholars and practitioners expanded the benchmarking of HR metrics to include investments in training and developing employees, as well as in a broad array of other HR policies and practices. Refining and improving the benchmarking of HR metrics remained a primary area of focus throughout much of the 1980s and 1990s. This benchmarking focus, while helpful in informing HR professionals about how their organization’s HR metrics stacked up to comparable or best-in-class organizations, provided little by way of actionable business intelligence on how to gain competitive......
