People Vs. Palmer 2013 Cal. LEXIS 4341

FACTS: The defendant, Aaron Palmer, was convicted of multiple felonies for having fired gunshots at several victims. The district court sentenced Palmer to the Department of Corrections for a substantial period of time and imposed a concurrent term for the single count of conspiracy to commit reckless manslaughter that is at issue here. On appeal, Palmer argued that conspiracy to commit reckless manslaughter is not a legally cognizable crime in Colorado. Noting that conspiracy is a crime requiring a specific intention to achieve the forbidden result and that reckless manslaughter is a crime requiring recklessness with respect to the result, Palmer argued that it is logically impossible to specifically intend that an unintended death occur.

ISSUE: Does a conspiracy require that the conspirator intend to cause a particular result?

LAW: A person acts “intentionally” or “with intent” when his conscious objective is to cause the specific result proscribed by the statute defining the offense. A person acts with criminal negligence when, through a gross deviation from the standard of care that a reasonable person would exercise, he fails to perceive a substantial and unjustifiable risk that a result will occur or that a circumstance exists.” § 18-1-501(3).
ANALYSIS: The crime of conspiracy requires two mental states. First, the defendant must possess the specific intent to agree to commit a particular crime. Second, the defendant must possess the specific intent to cause the result of the crime that is the subject of the agreement. Specific intent is an integral part of the crime and must be established with the same certainty as any other material element of the crime. The People argue that the crime of conspiracy to commit reckless manslaughter, if recognized, would not require the…...

Human Resource vs People Managment

...of this is only possible if the internal structure of an organization is strongly bonded and the people working are recruited on merit based systems as well as for their skills. Like in an organization there are a lot of departments if we are to talk about the multinational or bigger this purpose a special unit is required which makes sure that they select the best possible employee for the organization and the organization gets the best man for the job. All of this is made possible by a department knows as “human resource management “. Personal management and human resource management are the departments that are used for a similar purpose and they almost work in a similar fashion, but human resource management is used more these days the main reason being that the structure of this department is much more solid as compared to the structure of personal management department. In the later pages we shall examine the differences and the reason that explains that why human resource management took over the personal management department as the time moved on.

...(linguistics) Linguists today distinguish determiners from adjectives, considering them to be two separate parts of speech (or lexical categories), but formerly determiners were considered to be adjectives in some of their uses. In English dictionaries, which typically still do not treat determiners as their own part of speech, determiners are often recognizable by being listed both as adjectives and as pronouns. Determiners are words that are neither nouns nor pronouns, yet reference a thing already in context. Determiners generally do this by indicating definiteness (as in a vs. the), quantity (as in one vs. some vs. many), or another such property. [edit]Types of use A given occurrence of an adjective can generally be classified into one of four kinds of uses: 1. Attributive adjectives are part of the noun phrase headed by the noun they modify; for example, happy is an attributive adjective in "happy people". In some languages, attributive adjectives precede their nouns; in others, they follow their nouns; and in yet others, it depends on the adjective, or on the exact relationship of the adjective to the noun. In English, attributive adjectives usually precede their nouns in simple phrases, but often follow their nouns when the adjective is modified or qualified by a phrase acting as an adverb. For example: "I saw three happy kids", and "I saw three kids happy enough to jump up and down with glee." See also Postpositive adjective. 2.......

X vs. Y People in which we live and operate in on a daily has many different languages and cultures, and to completely benefit from the global market it is best to be able to have knowledge and awareness of the countries involved. For example, for a business person or a manager to not be aware of the cultures and language of certain country they are doing business in would not be a good look, it would look like they don’t care and respect the people they are doing business with’s culture and language. This can often lead to the business withdrawing from and dropping all deals, and that’s not good because you are paying for the refund as well as loosing business. Gert Hofestede’s four categories of analyzing differences in cultures are power v.s. distance, masculine v.s. feminine, uncertainty avoidance, and individual v.s. collective. The four stages of international operations are direct export, joint venture, mixed venture, and wholly owned. The advantages of direct export is that you are able to make the product at your country, you give the people of your country the more benefit, you also insure that you have the most benefits. The disadvantage of direct export would be that you have to pay for certain things like taxes and tariffs put on by the government of the country you are doing trade in, as well it takes more money to export products and certain company’s can’t necessarily spend that much money to export products. The advantages of joint venture is that you are in......

Ethical Hacking - C.C. Palmer

...Ethical hacking by C. C. Palmer The explosive growth of the Internet has brought many good things: electronic commerce, easy access to vast stores of reference material, collaborative computing, e-mail, and new avenues for advertising and information distribution, to name a few. As with most technological advances, there is also a dark side: criminal hackers. Governments, companies, and private citizens around the world are anxious to be a part of this revolution, but they are afraid that some hacker will break into their Web server and replace their logo with pornography, read their e-mail, steal their credit card number from an on-line shopping site, or implant software that will secretly transmit their organization’s secrets to the open Internet. With these concerns and others, the ethical hacker can help. This paper describes ethical hackers: their skills, their attitudes, and how they go about helping their customers find and plug up security holes. The ethical hacking process is explained, along with many of the problems that the Global Security Analysis Lab has seen during its early years of ethical hacking for IBM clients. scribe the rapid crafting of a new program or the making of changes to existing, usually complicated software. As computers became increasingly available at universities, user communities began to extend beyond researchers in engineering or computer science to other individuals who viewed the computer as a curiously flexible tool. Whether they......

The People vs. Larry Flynt

...there are obviously people who would abuse it to invoke emotional distress, or even to invoke acts of violence. I believe that only in particular situations in which there is an obvious threat of clear and present danger should freedom of speech be repressed, and neither Hustler nor its creator, Larry Flynt, does anything to imply danger. One such philosopher who accurately and justifiably takes the position against society and the government, such as the United States government muzzling Larry Flynt and banning parts of Hustler, is John Stuart Mill in On Liberty. Near the beginning of the work, Mill states, “…by obtaining a recognition of certain immunities, called political liberties or rights, which it was to be regarded as a breach of duty in the ruler to infringe, and which if he did infringe, specific resistance, or general rebellion, was held to be justifiable.” (Mill 115) This idea that Mill surfaces within the text, published in 1859, sounds extremely similar and points in the same direction as the facts stated within the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights, created in 1789. The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” However, Hustler and its publication, seen throughout the movie The People vs. Larry Flynt,......

Her husband’s mom will call her whenever she needs help around the house and Courtney goes right over without complaint even though it is just her in law. And when my Grandma needs help putting up all of her holiday decorations (and she has a bunch of them for every holiday) Courtney is the first one over there bright and early to help her out. When I need to get out of the house for a few hours I call up Courtney and we will go shopping for nothing and she does not care. She likes just walking around the shops with me. Courtney is a good person because she does things for people that she does not have to do and does them happily. She is always there when I need her....

The People vs the Police: Building the Trust

...The People vs The Police: Building the Trust In Franklin Foer’s “How Soccer Explains the World: An Unlikely Theory of Globalization,” Foer describes a division between pro-soccer Americans and anti-soccer Americans. In Kwame Anthony Appiah’s “Moral Disagreement,” Appiah examines the ways that different cultural groups perceive themselves as opposed to others. In today’s society, these different cultural groups we all belong to, tend to see themselves in terms of an “us versus them” mentality. Overcoming or at least understanding the differences we share with opposing cultural groups is crucial for the sake of peaceful human interaction and existence. Since the beginning of history, the public's attitude towards police has been mostly negative. Due to failed community policing attempts, the misuse of police authority, and the media negatively influencing both cultural groups painting a lousy picture on both spectrums, this has been a constant battle worldwide. Through effective neighborhood policing and learning to trust the police, America could be a sharpened more secure place to live. First, because of failed community policing attempts in America, there has been a constant battle for the people and the police to view each other as equals and overcome the differences we share. Community policing is the newest terminology for law enforcement. It is a federally funded initiative built on the premise that everyone should be working together to reduce the fear of crime.

The Palmer Raids

...Vietnam. The Vietnamese struggle for liberation was very hard, long and there were many aspects that played into it like the anti-war movement. Ho Chi Minh thought that this appeal would give rights to the Vietnamese people. With this appeal, he wanted America’s assistances to end the French rule which would have helped with freeing the Vietnamese. America turned down Ho Chi Minh offer and was turned down another time when he ask Russia for help with the Vietnamese. Ho Chi Minh may have brought no reaction from the Peacemakers but he was a hero to many politically Vietnamese. The Palmer Raids were a series of raids in the late 1919’s and early 1920’s by the United States Department of Justice envisioned to capture, imprison and deport far-reaching leftists. The raids and arrests happened in November 1919 and January 1920 under leadership of Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer. Mitchell Palmer was trying to protect the community from moral rats and believe it was essential to prevent violent revolts. However, more than 450 foreign citizens were deported, as well as prominent leftist leaders. Palmer's efforts were generally discouraged by officials at the U.S. Department of Labor which they had authority for deportations and were against Palmer's methods. The Palmer Raids occurred when the Red Scare was happening. The Red Scare was a period of time when there was a fear of and reaction against political radicals in the United States in the years following World War One. ......

Arnld Palmer Hospital

...which there is a well established hierarchy between patients and physicians. However, the Arnold Palmer Hospital set up a system for evaluating the quality of medical cares by surveying its patients. I believe it is essential for the Palmer hospital to get feedbacks from its patients for a simple reason: a medical center built its reputation on its good results but also on the trusty relationship between staff and patients . All hospitals worthy of the name, whether in the US, in Europe or in Asia, are able to provide adequate medical cares, but the patients can judge the hospital through many aspects: the cleanliness and the comfort of the rooms but also the flexibility of the visits, the food, the building maintenance and all the elements which will make their stay less difficult. Acoording to me, patients don't need to be "medical experts" to give their opinion about these specific areas. As we saw it in class, business is more about « how » than about « what ». Patients may not have the knowledges to rate the quality of health cares provided to them, but they can certainly assess how they perceived their stay « in general ». This will enable the Arnold Palmer Hospital to better understand its weaknesses and make improvements on a daily basis, but also to build a strong relationship of trust and confidence with its patients, which is essential for a hospital. As Arnold Palmer has been ranked Among the top 10% of the Hospital in terms of patient satisfaction, It seems......

Neat People vs Sloppy People

...Comparative Essay Suzanne Britt’s interpretation on “Neat People vs Sloppy People” provides a bias approach to the two innocuous characteristics. She asserts that neat people are lazy and insensitive, and sloppy people are misunderstood and meticulous in their ways. She uses these two traits to determine a person's personality​. Granted, neat people do have a different approach to tackling daily tasks from that of sloppy people. However, it does not make one any more “lazier” or any less meticulous than than the other. Suzanne persuades her readers to believe that sloppy people are better than neat people. However, it can be equally argued that sloppy people live in disorder, and neat people live on habitual order. Neat people pay attention to detail more than anything. Suzanne Britt states that neat people do not care about the process but instead the solution. However, for neat people, the beauty or emotional value of maintaining their order, makes it worthwhile to dedicate time and attention towards maintaining it. Those who appreciate order and neatness, see the process as an essential part of dealing with the complexities of the world. A result is never satisfying unless it is the desired result, making the process that Walsh 2 much more important. The process determines the solution, which implies that if neat people care about the solution then they must care about the process. Neat people do not necessarily throw away anything with dust on......

The People vs. Martin Shkreli

...The People vs. Martin Shkreli The People vs. Martin Shkreli In August of 2015, Martin Shkreli, the CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals, purchased the rights of a 62 year old drug , called Daraprim, that has been used for treatment of patients with HIV/AIDS, among other diseases. The Daraprim pill, which costs approximately $1.00 to make, was being sold for $13.50; however, soon after Shkreli purchased the rights to the drug, the pill went from $13.50 to $750.00 per pill, a 5,500% increase (Mclaughlin,2015). Martin Shkreli's explanations did not satisfy the public, hurting the credibility of not only himself but also of Turing Pharmaceuticals. People were outraged worldwide and the media had a feast , so much that it is safe to say that Shkreli was one of the most hated persons in 2015. Shkreli's explanations to the community and media for raising the price of Daraprim so high included, but were not limited to, the following statements: * We are not greedy, we are just trying to stay in business * The raise will go towards the improvement of Daraprim and the development of new drugs * The proceeds will go towards research and awareness (Mclaughlin, 2015). On an interesting note, John Carroll, the Fierce Biotech editor, was one of the firsts to be able to ask Shkreli about the raise on Daraprim. Shkreli's first answer was that it was a great business decision that also benefited all the stakeholders....

Palmer V Thompson

...Palmer v. Thompson, 403 U.S. 217 (U.S. 1971) The City of Jackson, Mississippi maintained segregated swimming pools even though it wasn’t segregated in other areas such as public golf courses and parks. Instead of desegregating the swimming pools, the city decided to close all of the pools. Some of the black citizens of Jackson, Mississippi filed suit to make the city reopen the pools desegregated. The Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the city’s decision to close all the swimming pools did not violate the 13th or 14th Amendments. There was evidence that supported the city’s claim that the pools were closed only to maintain peace and order. The city’s reasoning for that was because they felt the pools could not operate economically on an integrated basis. Even though they technically didn’t violate the 14th Amendment, the decision to close all the pools was racially motivated. Therefore, I do not agree with the court’s ruling. This case could be applied to the District of Xanadu because Xanadu passed a law that stated “ "All people are welcome at all state-run swimming, beach, and golf facilities, as long as they are white. Non-whites may not use any of those facilities." Which is similar to the decisions of Jackson, Mississippi wanting to close all their pools. In both cases, the courts didn’t find the city of Jackson or Xandadu in violation of the 14th Amendment because the closure of all the swimming pools applied to everyone and not discriminated...

Arnold Palmer

...Arnold Palmer Case Overview: Arnold Palmer Hospital specializes in the treatment of women and children, and is renowned for providing one of the highest quality medical services and records of high patient satisfaction. This, however, requires costly inventory, most notably of custom surgical packs. In line with this, the hospital tied up with a major distributor partner, McKesson General Medical, which provides them with one-quarter of their medical/surgical inventory. This reduces their expenditures and helps them keep the quality of their inventory just in time for the scheduled operations that need them. Case Analysis: The hospital has managed to form a JIT partnership with one of its major supplier, McKesson General Medical.  To ensure coordinated daily delivery of inventory, McKesson has placed a full time account executive and two service personnel  to the hospital. This has reduced daily in-house inventory from 400,000 to 114,000. Arnold Palmer and Mckesson has designed a system for  custom surgical packs. A packing company assembles the customs packs with the order requirements of McKesson. The surgical packs are packed in a way that each item comes out of the pack in the sequence it is needed. Problems may arise if the items are not in order when opened for operations. The hospital  has 10 custom packs being used in the system. Surgical Staff of the hospital work with the hospital to identify and standardize and reduce the number of custom packs.......

Arnold Palmer

...OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES AT ARNOLD PALMER HOSPITAL Question 1 Arnold Palmer Hospital exists due to its customers who are the patients. Knowing the customers' expectations is very important for improving the hospital's services because as part of the total quality management at the hospital where process of continuous improvement, there is always room for improvement and perfection. If patient(s) is or are disgruntled by any service(s), the hospital should be thinking about ways to improve their process. Further, a patient's assessment enables the hospital to know whether their services would be recommended to others as word of mouth is the best advertising. Also, patients will not have the expertise to judge the quality of health care they received, if and only if, they have not been provided with the detailed information on their health problems and the corresponding medical diagnosis/treatments. This is why all discharged patients are sent a detailed survey form involving strategic areas at Arnold Palmer Hospital two weeks after discharge such as; satisfaction by the patient, respect given by the employee, quality of care, access to information by patients, quality of medical staff, coordinated care, if they received education needed concerning the area of patients concern and the quality of discharge information given to the patients. Considering the fact that the patients are provided with this information at Arnold Palmer Hospital, I believe that patients can......
