Griggs vs Duke Power

...Griggs vs. Duke Power Co. (1971) was a case that helped shape current labor laws after the implementation of Title VII. Prior to Title VII, black employees could not work in four of the five departments at Duke nor could they achieve the same wage as a white employee. The day Title VII became effective, Duke Power Co. introduced a new policy for new hires or department transfers that required a high school diploma or passing scores on two general intelligence tests. This new policy applied to all black employees and applicants but white employees that did not meet those requirements were grandfathered in. Black employees challenged these requirements, stating they were not job related and disqualified blacks from employment or transfer at a higher rate than whites (Bennett-Alexander & Hartman, 2007). 1. What was the impact of the Griggs vs. Duke Power Co. decision on the employer? The impact on the employer was that stipulations could not be implemented that restricted certain minority groups from being hired unless the employer could prove that those stipulations served a legitimate business purpose or in other words, “The employer must measure the person for the job and not the person in abstract” (Griggs v. Duke Power Co., 2012). This case legitimized disparate impact theory which states if a job qualification or employment practice has an unequal impact on a specific group, it is only justifiable if the employer can prove it has a business related purpose. ......

Arch Duke

...THE DUKE IS DEAD (Arch Duke Ferdinand) First of all we want to apologise for writing this story late. However, on the bright side we got special coverage from the Austrian-Hungarian government about the assassination of the dead Arch Duke Ferdinand. The sun shined proud during Sunday 28th in Sarajevo; the preceding days had been cool & rainy (1), Normal weather for June. However the 28th wasn’t a normal day, it was a Serbian national day and the Arch Duke had decided to inspect his military in the newly usurped country Bosnia, defying the Serbian popular opinion of gaining Bosnia or letting it be independent instead of being in Austria-Hungary’s power. After a long morning of inspecting the troops the Arch Duke and his wife Sofie was with him (because it was their anniversary) when he started his tour of the city and going to the reception at town hall, but to improve relations with the Nationalist Bosnians he decided he would ride in an open roof car and that the local police would be in charge of his security instead of his huge army waiting outside, there were only 120 available policemen and most of them were watching the Arch Duke. The main road was Apple Quay that went along river Mijacka (2). However, a group of Bosnian/Serbian Nationalists working for the Black Hand had been waiting for this opportunity for a while, all of them had Tuberculosis, therefore they had nothing to lose and also most of them were trained in Serbia.

...generation. The reservoir acts much like a battery, storing water to be released as needed to generate power. Before a hydroelectric power site is developed, engineers compute how much power can be produced when the facility is complete. The actual output of energy at a dam is determined by the volume of water released and the vertical distance the water falls. So, a given amount of water falling a given distance will produce a certain amount of energy. The head and the discharge at the power site and the desired rotational speed of the generator determine the type of turbine to be used. Duke Energy Carolinas owns nuclear, coal-fired, natural gas and hydroelectric generation. That diverse fuel mix provides 20,292 megawatts of electricity capacity to approximately 2.4 million customers in a 22,000-square-mile service area of North Carolina and South Carolina.

Duke of Jazz

...Shantae Todd Intro to Jazz History Mrs. Lester 29 January 2014 “Duke of Jazz” Duke Ellington was an American jazz composer, orchestrator, bandleader, and pianist, who were considered to be the greatest composer in the history of jazz music and one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century. He composed over 2000 works and performed numerous concerts during his musical career. A compilation of some of his most popular music is collected on a CD called "The Popular Duke Ellington." He was born Edward Kennedy Ellington on April 28, 1899 in Washington, D.C. to Daisy and James Ellington. They served as the ideal role models for young Ellington and taught him everything from table manners to the power of music. He was eight when he got his first piano lessons. By the age of fourteen, he was sneaking into Frank Holliday’s poolroom. He learned from his experiences in the poolroom how to appreciate the value of mixing with a wide range of people. He attended the Armstrong Manual Training School to study commercial art instead of an academically-oriented school. During the summer months, he would seek out and listen to ragtime pianists in Washington. He said he decided to become a musician when he realized that when playing the piano, there was always a pretty girl standing down at the bass clef end of the piano, thus the music career of Duke Ellington was born. He was called “Duke” because he was something of a dandy, with a love of fancy clothes and an elegant style. He......

Duke Medical Center

...Communication Barriers at Duke Medical Center Introduction: Effective communication requires messages to be conveyed clearly to the appropriate parties, but along the way there are many communication barriers that can create misunderstandings and misinterpretations of the intended message (Burns et al., 2012). Such misunderstandings and misinterpretations are apparent in the case of Jesica Santillon. This case study will identify the social and cultural barriers that may have made it difficult for the doctors to communicate with Jessica’s family. This case study will also offer recommendations on modification of the transplant process to ensure that misunderstandings are eliminated or minimized; and lastly it will propose some general communication strategies to manage communication with each group involved in this tragic case. Communication Barriers There may have been many communication barriers that hindered the doctors from effectively communicating with Jesica’s family. We will discuss some social and cultural communication barriers between the physicians and Jesica’s family: The language differences may have been a leading obstacle to effective communication between the physicians and the family, The family recently migrated to the United States seeking treatment for Jesica's condition and were not fluent in the English language. Health literacy may have also induced the communication barrier between the physicians......

Mercer V. Duke University

...Mercer v. Duke University The case of Mercer v. Duke University deals with the issue of women being allowed to play on contact sports teams. This case also raises issues of discrimination and whether or not federally funded institutions are prohibited from discrimination under Title IX. This is a very good case because it deals with a high-profile university and whether or not discrimination was an issue of one of the university’s college athletics. The Mercer v. Duke University case was about a student named Heather Mercer who attended Duke University and tried out for the Duke Football team as a walk-on placekicker in the fall of 1994. Mercer was an all-state kicker at her former high school Yorktown Heights and she was the only woman to try out for the Duke Football team at the time. Mercer failed to make the team, but she served as a manager of the football team during the 1994 season. The thing Mercer did other than manage was attend the practices during the 1994 fall and participate in conditioning drills in the spring of 2005. The highlight of Mercers college career was when she was nominated to play in an intrasquad scrimmage game, where she ended up kicking the game winning field goal. A little time after the game, Goldsmith who was the Duke Football coach told the media that Mercer had made the Duke Football team. The kicking coach of Duke also told Mercer herself that she had made the team. The following year during the 1995 season, Mercer did not participate......

Walmart vs Duke Case

...BU 301 Walmart Stores, Inc v. Dukes On March 29, 2011, a case was brought to the United States Supreme Court. The case was Walmart Stores, Inc. v. Betty Dukes. This case was an appeal from the Ninth Circuit’s, which that court ultimately by narrow 5-4 decision, affirmed the district court’s decision to certify a class action lawsuit. The plaintiff class included 1.6 million women who currently work or previously worked for Walmart stores, which included Betty Dukes as the lead plaintiff. Dukes and the other employees claimed gender discrimination in pay and in promotion policies and practices in Walmart stores. Walmart is the nation’s largest private employer. The company operates more than 3,500 stores and more than one million employees at their stores. Pay and promotion decisions at Walmart are generally delegated to local mangers’ broad discretion alike any other company. In every Walmart there is a policy against discrimination in making employment decisions. Betty Dukes, a 54 year old woman at the time, was a current employee at Walmart in California.

...guaranteed that I would not be only known as an Honors student. Like myself, Duke is much more than an academic institution; it is a living institution. I feel that I will be given the opportunity to excel both academically and socially. Duke is a university known for its rich history and strong academic program. And, at the same time, it is also known for its innovation and progressiveness. These are qualities which draw me to the college. In addition, Duke and I have a lot in common. The two most important extracurricular activities I have are a major part of Duke University. Duke's Speech team is known for its strong Extemp squad. I remember the time when my speech coach asked me what schools I was applying to. When I had listed my top five choices, he frowned at me and said, "Out of all those schools, I will only respect you if you either join us at Berkeley or go to Duke and extemp." I hope I will be given the opportunity to contribute my part in the Duke Speech team. Equally important, the Duke University has a well-known Ultimate Frisbee team. I look forward expectantly to becoming a part of the team. Strange as it seems, Ultimate Frisbee is one of my top criteria for choosing my future college. It delights me that Duke places such great emphasis on the two extracurricular activities that mean most to me. My first year at Duke should be a great one. Majoring in economics at Duke should allow me to both pursue my major studies and allow me time for personal......

Duke Ellington

...Now that the 21st century has begun, people often forget individuals and arts that helped shape what it is to be American art. One of these innovators was Duke Ellington, a composer, jazz pianist, and big band leader. No other artist single handedly has defined American Music as this jazz giant. He gave American music and jazzes an identity, the first true American art form. Edward Kennedy Ellington was born in Washington, DC on April 29, 1889 to James Edward Ellington and Daisy Ellington. At the age of seven, the young Ellington began taking piano lessons from Marietta Clinkscalps. Both of his parents were pianists. James Edward Ellington preferred operatic bits as Daisy played primarily parlor tunes. At this point in his life, Edward Ellington was more interested in playing baseball with his mates rather than playing the piano. During this time in his childhood, Ellington would acquire his famous pseudonym “Duke.” The title came from his schoolmates. Edward was reared by his mother and her dignified friends. Through this, he developed a Great Gatsby esque demeanor demonstrating a sense of grandeur and grace similar to a noble gentleman of that era and ones forgotten. Many of his peers noticed and deemed him “Duke” Ellington. Ellington’s interest in the piano would not reemerge until he began sneaking into local pool halls looking for the thrills of an older lifestyle. Furthermore, while in those pool halls, he began listening to eclectic styles of the pool......

...Extraordinary items and discontinued operations/sales 4. For the assumption in 3 above, review the formula and describe in words how that assumption is developed. If there is belief that there is an item that effected the Earnings Per Share during the year will NOT happen again, it is stated to be an extraordinary item. 5. In this entire workbook, information can be input/changed in any box shaded yellow. While you are still in the Forecasting Assumptions sheet, change the “Effective Tax Rate” to 32% for both 2015 and the terminal year. Note the resulting valuation here: $66.93 6. Note the resulting “Implied Return on Equity” for 2015 here: .072 7. Is this sufficient for Duke to be adding value for its common shareholders? Yes, because by lowering the effective tax rate, that would mean Duke would have more cash to give to their shareholders OR to purchase assets that would increase their overall value in the future. 8. Now increase “Ending Net PP&E/Sales” to 305% for 2015 and the terminal year. Note the resulting valuation here: $57.24 9. What did the value go down? The cost and amortization of keeping those assets on the books decrease the overall value of the company. 10. Turning to Piedmont Energy – What are the primary drivers of the earnings decline in 2015? Are these likely to continue in 2016? The earnings decline is primarily from Piedmont’s international operations. In Brazil, there has been a major drought during the past......
