THE LAW AND TREATY Declaration of Independence The Declaration of Independence was drawn up by people that agree in their feeling of oppression both in taxation, in government representation and in religious freedom.
Purpose of Declaration of Independence was to explain to foreign nation why the colonies had chosen to separate themselves from Great Britain. The Revolutionary War had already begun, and several major battles had already taken place. The Declaration of Independence came first to express a unified desire to be self­governed and right the wrongs Americans were forced to bear. It was the ‘’starter’’ of freedom. The connection between the Declaration of well the popular sovereignty is that the people come together to created a fair government and sustained by the consent of its people, and the people elected a representatives (Rule by People), who are the source of all political power. The Declaration of Independence is a document that ‘’these united colonies are and right to be free and independent states. the both support democracy and the big picture was to rule by ‘’the people’’. One quotes from the declaration of independence “We hold these truths to be self­evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
The connection between the Declaration of Independence and the second principle, social contract is that social contract is a model, originating during the age of Enlightenment that typically addresses the questions of the origin of society and the legitimacy of the authority of the state over the individual. ‘’That whenever any form of…...

Big Idea

...February 27th, 2012 INTRODUCTION The Big Idea Group (BIG) was created by Micheal Collins to help both inventors and corporations meet the innovation challenge. BIG partners with inventors and companies to identify, develop and bring to market innovative ideas. Before BIG Collins founded Kid Galaxy in 1994, a specialty toy company and became a producer of the award-winning Bendos line. Bendos, a line of Gumby-like figures eventually helped Kid Galaxy gross $5 million a year. But Collins, who held just a 4% stake in his company, says he felt there was little growth in store. Collin is exposed to Clayton M. Christensen, a Harvard Business school professor who posited a theory about why companies fail, even with great technology, in his book The Innovator's Dilemma. The professor gave him an endorsement and an undisclosed investment for an idea-hunting company. A year later Collins became a success with Tiny Totes, a set of mini-handbags girls could use to store collectibles. Tiny Totes was designed by an Indianapolis woman who had tried for a number of years to break into the toy business and Collins was able to give her the first break. Almost all of Collins' products are new ideas for toys and consumer products. Collins is now looking to diversify his company Big Idea Group (BIG) which has become successful in the toy industry MBA 621 Prof. H.

Business Idea

...Business idea and business opportunity can sometimes go hand and hand and for some they mean the same thing. After some research in the Webster’s dictionary the words began to come alive. Business was defined as the principal activity in your life that you do to earn money. Business can also be defined as the activity of providing goods and services involving financial and commercial and industrial aspects. Next we defined idea; an idea is an approximate calculation of quantity or degree or worth, a content of cognition of personal view. Opportunity was defined as a possibility due to a favorable combination of circumstances. It can also be defined as a chance for advancement, progress or profit. A business idea and an opportunity are in fact two separate ways of entering into a business deal of venture. Example of Business Idea A business idea is in short an idea that you have for yourself to enter into business. This is an idea that as an entrepreneur you provide a business plan and search the market for investors. As the owner of a new business this is pretty much your brain child, it is the business that you have dreamed about and you feel you will be good at. This is the business that you will be the manager CEO of and the profits will ultimately belong to you and the investors. An example of someone who had a business idea would be Steve Harvey, while he entered into a market of clothing the line was all his brain and his designs. Example of a business......

But when it comes to pack the household things, people starts getting nightmares. It is a big headache. Uniqeness of this idea: Having a group of few friends will be more helpful in this as shifting the heavy goods might not be possible for a single person so this idea can be used. Cap-ex and op-ex As the firm is transportation based firm a mini truck is required to be purchased in starting as the transactions will be less. And for more heavy goods big truck can be rented if required. Also an office is required to be rented and employees are also to be kept. Thus an estimate of all expenses is made in the below list.

Ideas Consulting

...Hola Jimmy; a la vista de lo poco que hemos hablado hoy y el borrador que me has mandado se me han ido pasando por la cabeza una serie de cosas que prefiero dejar por escrito. En primer lugar la idea me parece genial, pero me parece que peca de cierto utopismo aunque sea en un principio. Pienso que la clave del éxito de esta idea reside en el gran atractivo que puede presentar a primera vista tanto para un universitario que como si dijéramos, ya está ‘triunfando’ en el ámbito universitario, así como para una empresa importante que, con más o menos dificultades acaba accediendo el día de mañana a esas cabezas pensantes. Por ello todo el tema de la solidaridad, personas interesadas en temas que debatir como política o lectura entre iguales y con especialistas, debe ser una consecuencia natural de juntar grandes cabezas en una misma plataforma. Creo que la idea debe ir más enfocada al concepto que voy a copiar de Steve Jobs, mi gran referente en este ámbito: ‘different thinker’: como seguro estás informado, hoy en día las empresas no buscan ratoncillos de biblioteca que puedan memorizar grandes libros, ni tampoco el típico ‘social’ que intelectualmente no valga mucho, sino que más bien buscan una combinación de ambos como bien hemos estado hablando. No obstante, el top top es el different thinker, como aquella persona que es capaz de pensar diferente, capaz de resolver problemas yendo por otro camino del que una persona normal seguiría. Se busca una originalidad de pensamiento......

Refining Ideas

...Refining ideas PHL/458 University of Phoenix Refining ideas When refining ideas, there are three steps to follow to produce a viable solution. The first step is to work out the details by determining exactly how a solution will be applied. The second step is to examine those details for imperfections and the third step is to make improvements that will eliminate imperfections (Ruggiero, 2009). The original issue seen on week two was a computer malfunction. The problem with this is that it prevents me from completing my work on time. Many possible reasons are possible for the malfunction: it can be overload, an out- of- date computer or a person deleted vital programs in error causing the malfunction. Some initial solutions: can be to consult with the competition, Google the challenge presented and follow instructions on how to fix problem, change computers every week to a new one, completely abolish deadlines and anticipate computer damage before it happens by auto-testing the computer every 15 minutes for potential malfunctions. While doing a critical examination of best solution, these questions are to be addressed and answered: What exactly is to be done? The answer is to anticipate computer damage. How is it to be done? A device that alerts the user that a computer malfunction is imminent, the user can immediately click on a defense software to rescue or fix the malfunction before the work is lost,......

The idea of LRE requires that kids with and without inabilities ought to be instructed together unless it doesn't help.

A World of Ideas

...use the word `idea` in lots of different contexts: `idea` may describe thoughts and suggestions (It would be an awesome idea to spend the winter holiday in Austria), new concepts (The idea of this website is to help people match their pets) or even opinions and beliefs (My idea is that public transportation remains the best way to travel across the city). However, this wide variety of uses creates a little bit of confusion: if the ideas are so ubiquitous, why, in many cases, it seems so difficult to make them happen? Cobb, the main character from Inception, has a possible answer. No idea is simple when you need to plant it in somebody else’s mind, he states. Indeed, ideas represent only a basic step (yet an important one, for sure) in the evolution: they act like a bridge between `imagining` and `doing`. What is really interesting to be followed here is the way ideas transform themselves when meeting the collective mind: either they are validated and accepted or they die. Ideas are important. At the same time, ideas surround us: they are in our heads, in the people around us, in places, buildings, animals, what someone is wearing, a snippet of conversation, something you hear, a smell. Basically, ideas are everywhere since they act as mental representations of the world. Thus, ideas begin in the mind: they are the object of thoughts (Adler: 1981, p. 14) . Moreover, ideas make the world, for they are the guide to future practice. Even the flimsiest ideas rooted in......

...Summary According to the article “Analyze a Subject by Breaking it Down and Building it Back Up”, the author explains that analyzing is to break the subject into small, ideas or detailed parts, and where, by looking closely at those parts you identify the purpose or process of discovery to reach a conclusion of the situation. 2. Critical Thinker In my opinion a critical thinker is a multi-dimensional person involved in the process of analyzing, processing and evaluating information. It is also an attitude that shows the ability to explore, probe, ask and search out answers and solution. 3. “Space Invaders” The method does Stengel uses in his introduction to generate reader interest is narrative ( a short story or anecdote). Furthermore, when i was reading the introduction the author spark my curiosity to continue reading the text. It was interesting to me because this is the way that people live today. Its very common looking around, and detect many space invaders. For example, in elevators, people are wedging themselves in just before the doors close or on the street, pedestrains are zigzagging through the human traffic. In short, the phenomenon of invading personal space has become more serious in the current society and this space varies across individuals according to factors such as culture, age, and gender. 4. According to the author, I understand “personal space” as the area around a person which they prefer not be occupied by another person. It is......

Ideas for Success

...Lynette GS1145 Ideas for Success Ms. Kirshenbaum January 18, 2016 When I think of the word success, I think about a person who strives to achieve their goals. Some of the ideas to achieve success could be managing your time, using your weekends to your advantage, getting enough rest and putting the most important tasks at the top of your list. Time management plays a huge role in my life it seems like every minute of every day is planned out. Having two small kids you have to schedule everything around them and their activities, so having a healthy balance is essential to my everyday life. My first idea and probably the most important is time management. Using this tool to make up a schedule to prioritize the most important tasks at the top of the list would help me greatly in achieving my goals. Blocking certain times for different tasks and making sure that I set out certain times for my daughter’s homework and playtime. For school just writing down when I have class, when my assignments are due or when I have a quiz or test. Keeping myself organized is a huge time saver. Making sure that I manage to give myself some personal time is also key so that I don’t burn out. My second tool for success is using the weekends to my advantage. Having to work a full-time job and being a single mother you don’t get a lot of time to manage how you are going to tackle the week ahead. So because I work from 6am till 3:30p.m., pick-up the kids and drop them off at a......

...Date: March 14, 2015 Subject: ACL versus IDEA When comparing ACL and IDEA it was hard to choose which was clearly better because they perform such similar tasks. While we think both would be effective at identifying fraud there were a few reasons why we decided that IDEA was the better software. First, ACL simply was not designed as well as IDEA in our eyes. The team member who was assigned to the ACL tutorial had to re-install the program multiple times to “fix” simple errors that should have never arose to begin with. To add to that, it was not very user friendly in general which made it difficult to navigate and look at. ACL was, however, easy to import into Excel due to its inherent similarities with it. On the other hand, the team member who worked with IDEA found the software extremely easy to learn, use and remember and did not run into any problems due to design flaws. It was very easy to import and export from Excel with very simple and easy applications. There was a way to manipulate the data whichever way needed and by the end of the tutorial the team member felt that they were very knowledgeable on the software and felt confident in using it. Although more expensive, we feel it is much more effective and an overall better program. IDEA Tutorial 1. Attached are the 4 random pages from the report. 2. a) Willspo Yip, customer #60300, had the highest balance. b) Andrew Sarabia, customer #20039, had the lowest balance.

A Big Idea

...A BIG IDEA Over the past decade or more many governments, especially western governments, have taken steps to draw together a wide range of different functions, objectives and institutions under the concept of ‘national security’. This trend is driven by two simple ideas. First, countries and their citizens face many different types of security threats, and they all need to be taken seriously and given due attention and priority. Second, government has many different types of policy instruments that can be used to manage this range of security threats, and they can and should all be used in the most cost-effective combination to address the full range of security challenges. From these two ideas naturally springs a third: that governments should view the security threats they face, and the responses they make to them, holistically, and unite them under an overarching National Security Strategy. We might call these three ideas collectively ‘the idea of national security’. It is no coincidence that this idea emerged in the years after the Cold War. For forty years until 1989, one specific security issue—major war—was seen to have dominated threat perceptions, and one specific policy instrument—conventional armed forces and the intelligence apparatus that supported them—was seen to have dominated national policy priorities. As this era passed, it was natural that 2 political leaders, policymakers, analysts and voters would start to shift their attention to new threats and their......

But they won't do nothing like that. I won't have no place to go, an' I can't get no more jobs. I'll have thirty dollars more comin', time you guys is ready to quit." George stood up. "We'll do her," he said. "We'll fix up that little old place an' we'll go live there." He sat down again. They all sat still, all bemused by the beauty of the thing, each mind was popped into the future when this lovely thing should come about. George said wonderingly, "S'pose they was a carnival or a circus come to town, or a ball game, or any damn thing." Old Candy nodded in appreciation of the idea. "We'd just go to her," George said. "We wouldn't ask nobody if we could. Jus' say, 'We'll go to her,' an' we would. Jus' milk the cow and sling some grain to the chickens an' go to her." "An' put some grass to the rabbits," Lennie broke in. "I wouldn't never forget to feed them. When we gon'ta do it, George?" "In one month. Right squack in one month. Know what I'm gon'ta do? I'm gon'ta write to them old people that owns the place that we'll take it. An' Candy'll send a hunderd dollars to bind her." "Sure will," said Candy. "They got a good stove there?"
