The Mysterious Roses and Cold Feet ETH/316 University of Phoenix

The Ethics Games Dilemmas this week presented “The Mysterious Roses” and “Cold Feet” simulations. For the exercise we were required to address the issues in the simulation and identify the best decision for all parties involved. This summary will review what ethical issues were presented in the simulation, the decision making steps to ethically address the issues, the perspectives and lenses that were used to make the decision, influences in the decision making and concepts that relate to my work place. The first simulation “The Mysterious Roses” presented an issue that could have potentially been a violation of the sexual harassment policy. In this simulation Bill Witherspoon, a research scientist had been sending flowers to Gayle Dornier, a Sales Representative. Bill Witherspoon had been sending flowers anonymously for the last three weeks to encourage her. Joe Williams another employee informed me that this has made Gayle uncomfortable. Gayle has requested a meeting due to a confidential matter that may or may not be related to the anonymous flowers. Due to Gayle’s request that this meeting be kept confidential, I am faced with the dilemma of what to do in this situation. The second simulation “Cold Feet”, presented a problem related to possible falsification of data. In simulation I have received an email from Nicolai Zubanov. The report he has to submit to Phillip Waters has data that is not favorable to their project. To help the situation he will be editing data to make the report look better. Philip Waters asks to review his final report and the results that Nicolai had included in the first initial report are not included. This leads me to believe that Philip Waters may have excluded data from Nicolai’s report. In this situation I am faced with the problem of…...

A Rose

...“A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner (1930) I WHEN Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no one save an old man-servant--a combined gardener and cook--had seen in at least ten years. It was a big, squarish frame house that had once been white, decorated with cupolas and spires and scrolled balconies in the heavily lightsome style of the seventies, set on what had once been our most select street. But garages and cotton gins had encroached and obliterated even the august names of that neighborhood; only Miss Emily's house was left, lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wagons and the gasoline pumps-an eyesore among eyesores. And now Miss Emily had gone to join the representatives of those august names where they lay in the cedar-bemused cemetery among the ranked and anonymous graves of Union and Confederate soldiers who fell at the battle of Jefferson. Alive, Miss Emily had been a tradition, a duty, and a care; a sort of hereditary obligation upon the town, dating from that day in 1894 when Colonel Sartoris, the mayor--he who fathered the edict that no Negro woman should appear on the streets without an apron-remitted her taxes, the dispensation dating from the death of her father on into perpetuity. Not that Miss Emily would have accepted charity. Colonel Sartoris invented an involved tale...

...When it comes to video games there's a lot of pros and cons we have research to make sure we are allowing our kids to become active on such activities. I have found that there's many pros when it comes down to video games. Video games increases resistance to distraction (especially when playing action games), they can also teach people more about life such as virtual games, also I found that they can be used to assist in education. Studies have shown that children playing educational games learn more because they do not realize that they are learning (Want to know it.com, 2012). I fell not all video games causes violence, there are some games out there that are motivators such as the Nintendo Wii and also the Xbox connect, these games are more active with family and also a person's health. I have found that these games can keep you physically fit and healthy at the same time. These games also comes with some cons which I feel parents should pay more attention when purchasing these games for their kids. Some people can become completely addicted to video games and they will miss work, school and other activities because of these games. I have also found that some people can become desensitized to violence when they a lot of violent video games. There have been reports of criminals copying violent video game crimes such as those featured in the controversial Grand Theft Auto series(Want to know it.com,2012).

Mysterious Places

...Mysterious Places Mamyan Ann Our environment is full of magical, mystical, and mysterious places that defy explanation.  There are treasures yet to be found, stone carvings we don't yet understand, and architectural feats to be explained.  Even as we live in what we consider to be the most technologically advanced society in all history, there are currently no air-tight explanations for most of the true wonders of our planet and beyond. The Great Pyramids of Egypt are the oldest structures on earth, contain compelling evidence of a civilization far more advanced than ours, and most likely existed thousands of years before the great flood.  With their original exteriors, they could probably be seen from the moon. The Mayan Civilization left behind incredible structures containing precise calculations and prophecies regarding the exact date of end of the world........Do you know that date? A site being studied on the side of Mt.  Ararat in Turkey may be the remains of the Biblical Noah's Ark. Scientists are currently quietly investigating a site off the western tip of Cuba that some say may be part of the lost city of Atlantis. We know less about the bottom of our own seas than we do about outer space.  There is a form on the surface of Mars that strongly appears to resemble an Egyptian face carving.  Is there a link? These are just a few of the many fascinating and mysterious places we intend to visit on these pages.  From......

The Mysterious Blogger

...The Mysterious Blogger Rafael A Berastain ETH/316 Nov 14, 2013 Professor Jones The Mysterious Blogger Despite a new computer security system, someone, who must be a company employee, is still posting company information on a private blog site. Most of the information is available elsewhere, but the leak concerns you. One of your other employees determines who is posting the information, at home and without company authorization. The other employee also hacks into the blogger’s home computer and discovers a material that is not allowed in the company computers. The ethical issues on “The Mysterious Blogger” were whether the information obtained by Jamal Moore, the IT Tech was enough to discipline Aaron Webb, the blogging employee for violating the NDA policy. In one side, the company has an employee named Aaron Webb that is posting illegal blogs and violating some of the company policies. In the other hand, the company has another employee, Jamal Moore that is trying to help somehow to unsolved this mystery blogger. The only thing is that Jamal is also violating some of the company policies by letting me know about the situation. After finishing the Ethic simulation, I notice that my decision was only made on thinking only what is right and also thinking that I did not want anybody to think that I chose anybody sides. In order for the company employees to learn the consequences of wrong actions, they need it to see what the outcome was. Not really paying attention......

Untouchable Rose

... An Untouchable Rose The story, “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner in 1900‘s, is about one woman’s life, from her being a teen to her death in her home. The town’s people did not like her, her family did not like her, but when she died, everybody showed up to Miss Emily’s Funeral. The only person to see Emily was her old manservant, a black man that was the cook and the gardener. The only time that the town would see him was when he went to the grocery store to shop. He would never talk to anybody while he was there. Miss Emily was not always alone. When she was younger, her father lived at the house with her. He was a man without his sanity. When ever a male would come to the house to see Emily, he would greet them at the door, and see them off before Emily could even say hello. The town used this excuse for Emily when her father died. The town had always respected Emily. She was “A slender figure in white,” as contrasted with her father, who was described as “a spraddled silhouette.” After the death of her father she became distant and aloof. Miss Emily seems to live in a sort of fantasy world where death has no real meaning. Miss Emily refuses to accept or even recognize, the death of her father or that of Colonel Sartor is . She does not want to acknowledge the fact that the world around her was changing therefore Miss Emily surrounds her self with death. Everyone in town thought she had gone crazy. Even through all her mysterious actions the town......

Written Roses

...Written Roses- Chapter 1(Sample) My feet lie cushioned on the library's carpeted floor. The shelves of the high bookcase press into my back as I play with my long curtain-like hair. A worn out copy of Sense and Sensibility lay in my lap. I look up as the librarian walks towards me. "We are closing now," she says. "Okay." I smile at her. I get up and place the book in the exact spot I found it. I say goodbye to the librarian and step into the night. I take out my iPod and start listening to one of my favorite songs, Words I Never Said. I stay close to the mural covered walls as I walk through the colorful crowd. The racing cars and laughing teens rise over my music so I let it wash over me and I start mouthing the lyrics. I run a hand through my dark hair as the moonlight swims through it. I pass through a group of cheerleaders from tonight's pep rally and turn into a lonely street with only two streetlamps. I hug the wall closer. I can feel the gravel like ground through my shoes with each footfall. There are tall brick walls on each side. I feel blind staring into the darkness that awaits me on the other end. Almost halfway up the lengthy road, I feel the presence of someone else. I let the music washout and look around me. He's walking towards me. I turn around and speed up. And so does he. I'm running now. I feel my hair blowing behind me. The wind is against me and so I lengthen my strides. The rhythm of my breath and my heartbeat......

A Rose for Emily

...A Rose for Emily Movie Review SETTING Intrinsic to the development of both character and conflict, the setting of "A Rose for Emily" is Jefferson, the county seat of Faulkner's fictional kingdom that he named Yoknapatawpha county, a county in which Colonel Sartoris is an important figure. The emancipation of slaves after the Civil War, the South was inundated by Northern opportunists, known as carpetbaggers. Against the Northerners who had no code of conduct, the newly-poor plantation owners retained their aristocratic arrogance. And, the code of chivalry of such men as Emily Grierson's father protected the women against encounters with men such as Homer Barron. This code of chivalry keeps Colonel Sartoris from taxing the poor spinster and Judge Stevens from confronting Emily about the smell emanating from her house. However, the new generations of the South are removed from these antiquated ways, and it is this conflict between twentieth century and antebellum ways that is presented in Emily's character. CHARACTERS EMILY GRIERSON - A eccentric recluse, Emily is a mysterious figure who changes from a vibrant and hopeful young girl to a cloistered and secretive old woman. Devastated and alone after her father’s death, she is an object of pity for the townspeople. After a life of having potential suitors rejected by her father, she spends time after his death with a newcomer, Homer Barron. She ultimately poisons Homer and seals his corpse into an upstairs......

The Mysterious Kingdom

...if there was anything I could do to go back home. I didn't know how far I had walked but I could not see the lake behind me anymore. The cold breeze kept me awake. When the wind blew, the smell of the fresh air mixed with the smell of the muddy soil and grass. I kept walking until I heard some noises. It was the voice of someone crying, a voice of a little kid. I walked towards the voice and finally I found a little kid sitting under the tree. He was shivering and there was a cut on his knees. Blood was dripping from his knees. I walked towards him. The second he saw me, he suddenly stopped crying but starred at my with his eyes as bright as the star on the sky. I never saw someone’s eyes were so clear and mesmerizing. I tore off my handkerchief and started to wrap it around the boy’s bleeding knee. The boy did not move, but just stared at me quietly until I finished cleaning his cut. At last the boy finally opened his mouth. He told me that there was a bad guy chasing after him and he wanted me to help him. I didn't know why but I agreed. The boy handed me a key and wanted me to keep it for him so it won’t be lost. Suddenly, a man holding a sword appeared, looking at us fiercely. The first thought that came into my mind was to run. So I hold the little boy and started to run backward towards the lake. I kept running as fast as my feet could carry me. I was almost there when I accidentally tripped over a stone. I quickly get up and tried to escaped, but all I saw was......

A Rose for Emily

...the Gothic elements of “A Rose for Emily” Gothic can be defined as “literature dealing with the strange, mysterious, and supernatural designed to invoke suspense and terror in the reader.” (Pickering, 2004, p. 1425) Gothic literature generally presents the same themes and motifs: love lost, hidden secrets, love and death hand in hand, beauty, youth, grotesque characters, macabre eroticism, etc. Gothic literature also explores taboo subjects such as murder, suicide and incest. “A Rose for Emily”, by William Faulkner, is representative of the Southern Gothic stories since the themes of love lost, death, and murder are present in it. There are many elements that hint at the Gothic nature of the story: Emily’s description, her house, the poison she bought, and finally the ending. Emily, the protagonist, used to be the perfect young and rich lady living with her father, but now she is an old woman living alone in her crumbling house. However, the inhabitants of the city she where she lives respect her. Throughout the story, the author describes her as being weird and lonely. “She looked bloated, like a body long submerged in motionless water, and of that pallid hue. Her eyes, lost in the fatty ridges of her face, looked like two small pieces of coal pressed into a lump of dough.” She is described as a living death. This description creates suspense for the readers. Then, later on in the story, Emily denies her father’s death and refuses to let people come in her......
