Globalization and World Trade Organization

1. I think that its something inevitable, because we as a society need to keep growing, but also I think that it is, like everything, good and bad, since everything in excess is bad, very bad. Its good because we need to grow, like I said, and bad because, unfortunately, the human being doesn’t know when and how to stop. Globalization affect every single person, for me because I need to be more and more prepare, more than yesterday, for example, maybe 50 years ago I could have found a good job with only my career, now I need to know more than two languages, I need some master degrees, and things like that.

2. I think that it’s not fair for most of the countries, because not most of the countries have the power that only a few countries have.

3. My position would be right in the middle, because something that important, that could be very very good, or very very very bad, needs to be in balance.

4. For Mexico, the WTO is the main mechanism to establish a rules-based global trade framework. The commercial opening and the participation of Mexico in the multilateral trading system have contributed a lot to the growth of our exports, our economy and employment.

5. As we always say “nothing in this world is for free” I can’t imagine what would be more affected than our culture, because we would be more interested making our society more “globalized” than taking care of what we are, what our culture…...

Shakespear's Othello Act 1-2

...There are several different takes on how the art of war should be conducted. Each idea and skill is valuable in its own way, as are the differences on war and how everything should happen. In these four texts, Othello, An Arithmetical Military Treatise, Named Stratioticos, and The Pathway to Martial Discipline each author depicts a different aspect of war and what is needed to be victorious. Each one is similar in that they want to be able to be successful in combat, and each think that their methods will get them there. In Othello it is though, in the very first act, that war is about fighting. Cassio is incredibly knowledgeable on many things, not so much in war-fare, or so Iago claims. He believes that in order to be a warrior, a soldier, they must be fighters. They should have full knowledge of war and how to go about throughout the many situations that can arise. Othello himself said that he knows nothing but fighting. Digges's take is much more evovled than that of Iago in Othello. He believes that knowledge is the key to having a better military. He knows that in educating the soldiers, it will make them better which makes the army better. Most soldiers are trained within months, Digges's believes it take more time to fully absorb the aspects of war and how to go about it because war isn't a math problem with a simple solution. People can go in thinking one way, get a few things thrown at them, and leave with a completely different understanding on how to go about......

Hamlet Act 1

...Kim Nguyen Hamlet Act 1 Logs Act 1 Scene 1 Summary: The act opens with Bernardo, Marcellus, Horatio, and Francisco seeing the ghost king while on watch duty. The ghost appeared dressed in his armor and suddenly disappears. Because the ghost appeared, Horatio thinks it’s an omen of bad luck. He thinks the ghost king was trying to warn them that something bad would happen to Denmark soon, perhaps in the form of a military attack. The ghost then appears again and Horatio tries to talk to it. It would respond back and just disappears again. Horatio decides to tell Hamlet to try to talk to it because Hamlet was the ghost son so he can’t refuse to talk to his son. Quote Analysis: “No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm” Marcellus said this when the ghost appears. When the cock crowed at the first break of dawn, it was believed that it has the power to get rid of the evil powers. The morning light compels all evil because the light was believed to be good. Character Comment: Horatio – Horatio believed in thing s like ghost and witches. He believed in the world beyond ours. When Old King Hamlet came to visit in his ghost form, Horatio thought it was a bad omen for Denmark and the oncoming war with Fortinbras’ army. Act 1 Scene 2 Summary: Claudius and Gertrude get married and they have a feast to celebrate their new marriage and new life together. Claudius’ excuse for marrying Gertrude was to balance out the sadness toward Old King Hamlet’s...

The rich Roderigo has been paying Iago to help him in his suit to Desdemona, but he has seen no progress. 1. Desdemona has married Othello, a general whom Iago serves as ensign. 2. Iago declares that he hates Othello because of his recent promotion of Michael Cassio to the post of lieutenant. 3. Iago only pretends to follow Othello but secretly hates him. B. Iago advises Roderigo to spoil Othello’s marriage by rousing Desdemona’s family against the general.  1.

At first, he doesn’t believe what he hears and thinks Roderigo is merely scheming once again in order to see Desdemona. 1.  Iago speaks in inflammatory terms, vulgarly telling the senator that his daughter and Othello are having sex by saying that they are “making the beast with two backs”  2. Seeing the success of his plan, Iago leaves Roderigo alone and goes to attend on Othello.  3.  Declaring that his daughter has been stolen from him by magic “charms,” Brabanzio and his men follow Roderigo to Othello.

...fired or put on work suspension. The first case of whistle-blowing occurred nearly 236 years ago. By a unanimous vote, The Continental Congress enacted the first whistleblower protection law in the United States on July 30, 1778. The Continental Congress was moved to act after an incident in 1777, when Richard Marven and Samuel Shaw “blew the whistle” and suffered severe retaliation by Esek Hopkins, the commander-in-chief of the Continental Navy. Congress declared that the United States would defend the two whistleblowers against a libel suit filed against them by Navel Commander Hopkins. The Continental Congress also declared it the duty of all persons in the service of the United States, as well as all others who inhabit the U.S. to inform the Continental Congress or proper authorities of any misconduct, fraud or misdemeanors committed by any officers in the service of these states, which may come to their knowledge. (Lipman, 2012). A publicly traded company that has recently been in the news for Whistle-Blowing is JP Morgan Chase & Co., on March 7, 2014 a New York Federal Court awarded Whistle-Blower and former JP Morgan employee, Keith Edwards $63.9 million for tips leading to a False Claims Act settlement in which JP Morgan Chase & Co. agreed to pay $614 million over allegations it defrauded the U.S. government into insuring flawed home loans.

Nt1110 Unit 2 Act 1

...one. 1. Numbers involved in both the addition and subtraction of fractions need to have a common denominator in order to be solved, having the smallest common denominator will make the addition and subtraction easier since you would be working with smaller numbers. Example: 2/4 + 3/8, you could multiply the denominators and get 32 or just have 8 as the common denominator either way the final answer have to be the same. 2. Relationship Two: Fractions that are multiplied result in a larger fraction that all too often must be reduced to its smallest form. For example: if you multiply 2/5 by 5/6 it will equal to 10/30, in this case you must simplify it will equal to 1/3. 3. Relationship Three: The division of fractions normally results in an improper fraction this number must then be turned into a mixed number in order to be properly graphed. Example: (2/3)/ (5/8) =16/15, this means there is 1 entire thing plus 1/15 of the thing. 4. Relationship Four: It is easier to divide fractions by charting the solution in order to determine whether or not the solution is correct. Example: (3/5)/ (2/3) = 9/10 5. Relationship Five: Regardless of the size of the denominator the numerator remains small and proportional to the denominator. Example: 15/6 is an improper fraction because the denominator have to be bigger than the numerator. 15/6 is 2½. 6. All fractions must be simplify to the smallest number possible. Example: 3/6= ½, 15/5= 3 20/60= 1/3...

The Sox Act: Unethical Practices and Behavior in Business Accounting

...Week 5 Individual Assignment By Felicia Lattimore The SOX Act: Unethical Practices and Behavior in Business Accounting LAW/421 – CONTEMPOARY BUSINESS LAW September 6, 2014 Aretha Somerville Introduction Unethical decisions can ruin a business. Dishonest behaviors by accountants, such as falsifying financial statements, over-billing or misleading regulators, can tarnish a company's reputation, causing loss of customers, employees and/or revenue. In some cases, unethical behavior is also illegal and can result in fines and even jail time for not only accounting executives but management executives as well. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) was enacted in 2002 in the wake of a series of high-profile corporate and accounting scandals. SOX introduced major changes to corporate governance and the regulation of financial reporting that affected both publicly traded companies and their auditors. Ten years after the passage of SOX, there has been a dramatic increase in financial statement restatements. This is due to statement issuers complying with SOX during their initial preparation. This trend has been attributed to improved corporate governance as a result of SOX. Although we have not seen restatements as large as those of Enron and WorldCom in recent years, it is not clear that SOX has caused a reduction in the number of restatements across all publicly traded companies. The number of restatements during 2007 through 2009 declined, but they......

The Affordable Care Act and Its Affect on Business

...Owning one’s one business is the ultimate American dream. Over the years, however, the federal government has passed many laws regarding such. One such law is the Affordable Care Act, signed into law, by President Obama, in 2010. This law has become one of the most talked about, debated, and detested pieces of legislation. One question that a new business owner should ask is: how does the Affordable Care Act affect businesses? The question “What is the Affordable Care Act” needs to be answered first. The Affordable Care Act (also known as ACA) was passed to provide affordable health insurance to everyone in America. America was told that if one already had insurance, he or she would be able to keep that coverage. What has actually ended up happening is that employers were forced to provide health insurance that met the minimum of coverage determined by the federal government. This has not only affected individuals, but also businesses. Businesses now face having to pay extra taxes depending on the number of full-time employees. If a business has fewer than 50 fulltime employees, then the mandate, or tax, does not apply. However, if a business has more than that, a business faces a minimum $2,000 tax for each uninsured fulltime employee. If a business does not provide health insurance to employees, it faces the same type of mandate. The ACA has defined who classifies as fulltime. According to the ACA, if a person works 30 or more hours each week, he or she is classified......

How Significant Is Act 1 in Othello?

...What is the significance of act 1 in Othello. Act 1 of ‘Othello’ by William Shakespeare is of extreme importance to the development of the play and the audiences understanding of it as a whole. Othello is introduced to the audience as calm, confident and eloquent individual who has deeply in love with Desdemona even in the face of adversity in their relationship. However, as the play progresses Othello is manipulated and warped by his ensign Iago. His mind begins to fracture until he commits an atrocity so foul; he believes death is the punishment he deserves. One of the most important points portrayed in act 1 is Othello’s personality and thought process before he is manipulated by Iago in later scenes. “From men of royal siege; and my demerits…may speak unbonneted to as proud a fortune…as this that I have reached”. Othello is portrayed here as calm and rational here despite the fact that Iago is attempting to rile him by giving false information about Roderigo. Furthermore, Othello emphasises his self-confidence by stating that his past glories will speak louder than Brabantio’s gripes about his daughter’s relationship with him. Othello emphasises this point again by speaking in verse “Were it my cue to fight I should have known it without a prompter.” This emphasises his supreme confidence and rational thinking as he states that he has done nothing wrong and has no reason to feel guilty about his marriage to Desdemona. Moreover, although Brabantio orders his guard to......
