Mortgage is a fancy word for a loan. The bank owns your house in a mortgage in exchange for giving you the loan. If you default the loan, the bank reserves the right to sell the house to recoup. Like most loans, you set up periodic repayment like once a month or once every 2 weeks.

There's no 30 year rule. Banks will have various terms like 1/2/3/4/5 year fixed. They also have variable rates. As the names suggest, fixed means you pay a fixed rate regardless of rate fluctuations. Variable means what you think it means. Depending on the type of mortgage, you can pay back some or all of the principal during or at the end of the term.

You can certainly have 2 mortgages. Your ability to get this will depend on your credit rating and your relationship with the bank. For example, if you're wealthy, the bank would be happy to loan you more. (But if you're wealthy, you probably don't need a mortgage). Mortgages can't exceed a certain % of the fair market value of the house. For example, a house is worth $500k. The bank will not loan you $600k because if you default, the bank can't recoup their loan even if they sell the house. Realistically you'll get maybe 60-80% of the market value of the house. Of course, you can have 2 mortgages with 2 different houses. Again, it depends on your relationship with the bank. If you're an average joe blow, they'll just present you with the same standards they give to…...

Khrushchev's Shoe

...In these first two chapters of “Khrushchev’s Shoe” by Roy Underhill, I became more aware of why many organizations use a lot of hands on activities when trying to implement new experiences and information into their customers. For example, this past summer I went on vacation with my family to Branson, Missouri where we decided to visit the Titanic Museum. This museum had a lot of interactive activities that guests could participate in and to keep them entertained and fascinated about this tragic, yet historical event. Guests at the Titanic museum, upon boarding, were given a name and a story about an actual passenger on the ship and were given a guided tour by crew members that helped run the ship. Guests were also able to touch an iceberg, were challenged to see how long you could keep you hand in waters that were faced by Titanic passengers after it sunk, were able to steer and fuel the ship, and were also challenged to walk up platforms that showed how steep the ship got into the air before it broke off and sank to the bottom of the ocean. At the end of the tour, guests found out the fate of their character and were told the stories of the survivors. As you could imagine, it was a lot more fun and interesting when you were able to actually take part and have an experience where you felt like you were there when the Titanic sank. All the hands-on activities were much better than just walking around and looking at pictures and reading stories about the passengers on...

The Shoe Store Incident

...The Shoe Store Incident This paper will show that this scenario provides a case for gender discrimination. Gender discrimination is illegal under Title VII (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2007). In addition, this paper will show what legal and ethical issues arise in this case. Furthermore, this paper will show what Bob should do in this case. Title VII Issues Discrimination comes in all shapes and sizes, and managers have to be careful not to cross the line and do the wrong thing. Companies do not want lawsuits for discrimination or anything else. The store’s best customer, Imelda, probably did not intend to offend anyone nor did she probably know that she was discriminating against anyone. Many times discrimination is not intended. Customers generally believe they are always right and get what they want. However, in this instance the customer is very wrong. Requesting a female employee over a male employee is a form of discrimination, gender discrimination. Gender discrimination is illegal under Title VII (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2007). If Bob asks Tom to step aside and allow Mary to assist Imelda with her purchases, he will be “in violation of Title VII and can be held liable to the employee for gender discrimination. Customer preference is not a legitimate and protected reason to treat otherwise-qualified employees differently based on gender” (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2007, p. 283). Legally and ethically, Manager Bob cannot swap employees Tom and Mary simply......

Zappos was founded in 1999 by entrepreneur Nick Swinmurn, who decided it was time for a great on-line shoe company after failing to find shoes in stores and on-line himself (Zappos, 2012). Although he knew nothing about selling shoes he soon gained the advantage by recruiting Tony Hsieh a young multi-millionaire who had sold his web-advertising company, LinkExchange, to Microsoft for $265 million in 1998. Hsieh (pronounced Shay) ceased the chance in a market where people were still buying shoes from catalogues. But it became his obsession to offer the service values that has garnered the company a cult-like status among its customers (Wright, n.d.). The purpose of this paper is to first describe the recruitment policies of the selected organization, Zappos. Then we will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Zappos recruitment policies. Finally, we will look at possible improvements to recommend along with any reasons why to consider implementing them. Zappos has a unique recruitment process that involves two interviews.

Quality Shoe

...Incident 2-2: Bad Times at Quality Shoe Christopher Laurent MGT210 September 23, 2010 Craig Fowler Incident 2-2: Bad Times at Quality Shoe 1. I believe that Mack’s approach to solving this problem is wrong. Although getting the input of an employee that has been with the company for a long time is good he should not have promised to implement their decision in its entirety. He gave the employee’s too much freedom to solve this problem without his input. 2. If I was Ralf I would start by ensuring that I understand exactly what the problem is. I would then collect the facts about what the end results need to be. I would then have a meeting with my fellow employees and inform them of the situation and request them to write out any suggestion they have to remedy the situation and submit it to me. I would then evaluate the suggestions and choose the three I felt where the best alternatives. I would then have another meeting with my fellow employees and go over the three suggestions I felt were the best ones. I would then ask them to write down which one they felt was the best suggestion to go with and then analyze the results. If there was a tie between any of them I would use my vote to choose the one I felt was best. I would then submit my results to Mack. 3. I believe that if he does not feel that the group’s decision is reasonable he should have a meeting with the employees and discuss why he feels the decision is unreasonable and give them some suggestions...

...As a result of believing in core values, the cultural dimension of an outstanding customer service, and creating that positive atmosphere in a harmony with innovation. The outcome is outstanding, employees become passionate about their job and breaking sales record while sharing laughter and connecting to people. In the first question I would say the Zappos company culture shows three hidden characteristics good, bad and ugly in this organization. First, The good side. The company’s overall great performance was proven by growth in sales in 1998 at million to 1 billion in 2008¹. That type of performance was a result of Zappos culture, creating that customer loyalty team in the front lines of customer service was a key element to that success. Tony Hsieh describes the culture as number one priority². He believed that building that emotional relation with every single customer will create unbreakable bonds “a service company that sells but is the very best customer service”³. He embraced that service culture dimension. Employees work and performance at Zappos are guided by summation and integration of efforts not by separation and isolation. As a result of that the employees wrote the ‘culture book’ where every employee provided ideas of what is considered a core value. Demonstrating the importance of the team’s input and validating team oriented culture dimension. Then summarizing that to “Zappos 10 Family Core Values” that each employee in each department would follow. The...

Tying a Shoe

...words, but somewhere along our way, we as children were taught to tie our shoes as well as adding two-digit numbers. These two tasks spark our brains and cause us to think differently and this begins a learning process that can transition child into many different lessons in life. I was fortunate enough to take my nephew who is five years old and teach him to tie his shoes. I gave my nephew a pair of his shoes and I told him he was going to be able to tie his own shoes when I was done teaching him to do so. I gave him his shoes, tied them for him and explained not only the importance of tying his shoes, but also how to do so. I showed him how to tighten the show for the bottom of the laces up, how to tie the first knot to keep the shoe tight, and also the last bunny ear knot the finish the job. After showing him a couple times how to tie his shoes, I asked him to tie them on his own. He was able to tighten the laces from bottom up, and even a couple times made it to the formation of the bunny ears, but for the most part he was unable to tie his own shoes. I again went back and showed him the steps of tying his shoes and took about fifteen minutes to do so. Again I asked him to tie his shoes and he was still unable. I then asked him where he was having trouble comprehending the tasks and he replied with “the bunny ears”. I understood his issues and we worked on the task for the next couple weeks as I was unable to see him every day. At the end of the couple......
