Case Analysis – Unretired
Issue and Problem Retirement financial security is one of the hot topics today during the economic downturn. A Growing number of people who retired in recent years are finding themselves strapped in the economic downturn. With most of their assets in the stock market, many retirees are forced to return to the workforce. Retirees have a hard time looking for a job or career because of the weak economy. In addition, one survey finds that a large percentage of people make investment decisions by themselves. The goal of this case study is to find out the major cause of this social problem and to provide some solutions to the issue. Moreover, the goal of corrective action is to make sure retirees can retire at their retirement age and have a better financial security. Evaluation and Analysis The United States retirement system is established in both public and private sectors for a long time. In general, both employer and employee will contribute to the retirement fund during the employment period. In most cases, the retirement fund will be set aside and handled by investment companies. Large percentages of the fund will be invested into either mutual fund or stocks.

The issue arises with the economic going downhill since the stocks tend to get hit the most. Economic downturn is a normal business cycle which happens in a regular basis. If retirees have most of their retirement funds in stocks, they will bear incredible risks during retirement. In order to lower risk, they should not put all the eggs in one basket.

Blade Runner Critique

...much to the film, having been somewhat type casted as the stone cold killer, and it’s one of his many villainous roles. Blade Runner was considered a science fiction film by many, but also contains all the classic examples of film noire. On a futuristic Earth, where androids (replicants) are used for a variety of military and industrial applications, blade runners are police officers and hunt down and kill replicants that are on Earth and not under human control. These elements fit well into the science fiction genre. The story telling used in Blade Runner uses a dark and gritty presentation of film noire. The examples are almost too extensive to list. In Blade Runner we see a dark and futuristic Los Angeles. We have a recently unretired cop who is less than enthusiastic about his new case, a manipulative femme fatale android, many characters who seem to be interested in 1940s/1950s style of dress, and a host of other cynical characters. The engaging combination of science fiction and film noire successfully keep the audience’s attention throughout the film. The story, and plot, of Blade Runner are anything but simple. Deckard is recruited to return to police work, in the city of Los Angeles, after four replicants return to Earth illegally from an off world installation. The replicants are built with a four years life span, and no longer content to live the life of slavery they were designed for, have returned to Earth in an attempt to extend their shelf life. ......

...Politics 110 the Second World War, he did not support the war." 288 According to Sharp, Gandhi "rejected any military alliance with the Allies even as part of a bargain in exchange for India's independence." Sharp supports his assertion with various quotes from these years in which Gandhi reaffirms his devotion to nonviolence and abhorrence toward war. Statements which contradict the leader's adherence to nonviolence are not mentioned. Nor does Sharp examine what Gandhi was actually doing during the years that India's leadership was offering military cooperation as a bargain for independence. He ignores: • • • • The political dance in which the Working Committee "retired" Gandhi whenever it wished to negotiate with the British, and then "unretired" Gandhi when it wanted civil disobedience; Gandhi's advisory role in the Cripps negotiations, where Congress had offered military cooperation in exchange for independence; Gandhi's allowance--in his June 1942 interview with Fischer and then his 5 July article in Harijan--for Allied armies to remain in India for its defense; Gandhi's indirect offer to the viceroy through the 4 July 1944 interview with Gelder, and finally his direct offer on 27 July of the Congress's "full co-operation in war effort…if a declaration of immediate Indian independence is made." An interesting effort to defend Gandhi's nonviolent posture can be found in Pyarelal's Mahatma Gandhi: The Last Phase. In his introduction to volume I, Pyerelal writes: The......
