A Brief Description of the Hierarchy of the Courts
In New Zealand, as in the United Kingdom and all other common law jurisdictions, there is a judicial hierarchy in which higher courts have superior power and status than lower courts. Lower courts in the hierarchy are bound to follow the previous decisions (precedents) of the courts above them. Generally there is a right of appeal to a higher court from a decision of a lower court.
There are a number of different courts operating in New Zealand with some specializing in a particular subject area and others having a general jurisdiction or general subject area.
Going from lowest to highest, the courts with a general jurisdiction are: The District Court, The High Court, The Court of Appeal and The Supreme Court.
It is very expensive to have a trial in these courts and, as a practical matter, recourse to them is out of reach for most New Zealanders unless the sum of money involved is high. For most people the recommended first step for disputes involving sums of money up to $20,000 is The Disputes Tribunals.
The Disputes Tribunals are attached to the District Courts, and so are found in most towns, but they themselves are not courts. These Tribunals do not involve judges, lawyers or legal jargon. They employ Referees who may (but do not necessarily need to) have formal legal qualifications. Proceedings are begun with a simple statement by the claimant saying what the dispute is about. Disputes Tribunals are intended to provide individuals and companies with the means of inexpensive, informal, quick and private resolution of disputes involving whether an amount is owed or how much of an amount is owed. A lawyer would call these questions of ‘liability’ and questions of ‘quantum’.
The jurisdiction of a Disputes tribunal is limited to an amount of less than $15,000, or if both parties agree, an amount less than…...

The aroma of pumpkin spice and fresh ground coffee beans made me realize what a awe-inspiring, relaxing corner I was sitting in. The whiff of the sweet morning danishes and breakfast sandwiches filled my nose with cheer. Creamy sweet and salty blended frappuccinos are being sipped on. There is a buzz of others laughing and chatting over the calming music in the atmosphere. Others are happily engaged on their laptops, working and studying material using the free wifi that is provided.

The rustle and high pitched giggles of the people around me babbling about their previous rendezvous keeps me from my train of thought. The bitter stench of caffeine and over cooked pastries has the baristas baffled as they strive to accommodate the sleep deprived individuals walking through the door. The overpopulated number of people mingling amongst themselves have taken over the tables and chairs and have......

Provide a Brief Description of the Enterprise (E.G., Their Industry, Size, Location, Number of Employees).

...Provide a brief description of the enterprise (e.g., their industry, size, location, number of employees). Like many people who change history, John Pemberton, an Atlanta pharmacist, was inspired by simple curiosity. One afternoon, he stirred up a fragrant, caramel-colored liquid and, when it was done, he carried it a few doors down to Jacobs' Pharmacy. Here, the mixture was combined with carbonated water and sampled by customers who all agreed; this new drink was something special. Jacobs' Pharmacy put it on sale for five cents a glass. Asa G. Candler, a natural born salesman, transformed Coca-Cola from an invention into a business. He knew there were thirsty people out there, and Mr. Candler found brilliant and innovative ways to introduce them to this exciting new refreshment. He gave away coupons for complimentary first tastes of Coca-Cola, and outfitted distributing pharmacists with clocks, urns, calendars and apothecary scales bearing the Coca-Cola brand. People saw Coca-Cola everywhere, and the aggressive promotion worked. By 1895, Candler had built syrup plants in Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles. In 1923, four years after Robert Woodruff father Ernest purchased the Company from Asa Candler, Woodruff became the Company president. While Candler had introduced the U.S. to Coca-Cola, Woodruff would spend more than 60 years as Company leader introducing the beverage to the world beyond. In 1886, Coca-Cola brought refreshment to patrons of a small Atlanta pharmacy. Now...

List the Three Major Gods of Modern Hinduism and Give a Brief Description of Each.

...Essay Assignment #1 | REL330 | Name | Chapter 4, Question 5 List the three major gods of modern Hinduism and give a brief description of each. Chapter 4, Question 5 List the three major gods of modern Hinduism and give a brief description of each. The three gods of modern Hinduism are Brahma, the creator of the universe; Shiva, the destroyer of the universe; and Vishnu, the preserver of the universe – together, they are referred to as the Trimurti. (Hopfe & Woodward, 2012) As with most religions, there is a creator of the universe. In the religion of Hinduism, Brahma is the creator of universe and all things in it. He is often depicted as red in color having four heads, four arms and usually a beard. Sarasvati, Brahma’s wife is the goddess of knowledge, speech, poetry, and wisdom. (Hopfe & Woodward, 2012) Although he is well respected and known to all Hindus, Brahma is the least worshipped of the Trimurti with only two temples in India devoted to him. Unlike Brahma, Shiva, known as the destroyer of the universe, is among the most popular of gods. (Hopfe & Woodward, 2012) Shiva is the god of death, destruction, and disease. His role is to destroy the universe in order to re-create it. His popularity stems from the belief that he is also the god of vegetable, animal, and human reproduction. He plays a vital role in the endless cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth. In Indian thought, death is but the prelude to rebirth. (Hopfe......

Maslow's Hierarchy

...Introduction Maslow's hierarchy is a theory in psychology, proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation". Maslow theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, all of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow use the terms Physiological, Safety, Belongingness and Love, Esteem, and Self-Actualization needs to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. [pic] Maslow's hierarchy of needs is often portrayed in the shape of a pyramid, with the largest and most fundamental levels of needs at the bottom, and the need for self-actualization at the top. While the pyramid has become the de facto way to represent the hierarchy, Maslow himself never used a pyramid to describe these levels in any of his writings on the subject. a) Physiological needs [pic] (Source:http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51L6WfiOtwL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_.jpg) Water is metabolic requirements for survival in all animals, including humans. The human body is composed of approximately 70% water and contained in the cells of the body, in the arteries and veins, and in the spaces between the blood vessels and cells. The body's water supply is responsible and involved in nearly every bodily process. Water is required for the distribution of nutrients, electrolytes, hormones, and other chemical messengers throughout the body, as well as the......

Maslow’s Hierarchy

...In Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, he addresses five needs that innately motivate people. If presented in a pyramid format they would be presented in this order from bottom to top; basic needs, psychological needs, and self-fulfillment needs. The basic needs consist of physiological and safety needs. Examples of physiological needs are food, water, warmth, and rest; and example of safety needs are security and safety. Psychological needs consist of belongingness and love needs, such as intimate relationships and friendships. Psychological needs also consist of esteem needs, such as prestige and feelings of accomplishments. In the hierarchy and what is at the top of the pyramid is self-fulfillment needs which consist of self-actualization. Self-actualization is achieving one’s full potential and also includes creative activities (Hockenbury, Chapter 8, 2014). According to Maslow people strived to satisfy each need before moving up to the next hierarchy level, with the ultimate goal of achieving self-actualization. Maslow also believed that as people progressed through the hierarchy of needs they would eventually grow more socially and psychologically. Critics There are many people who believe in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, but there are just as many people who criticized his concept. For example, several critics believed his concept of self-actualization to be too vague. These critics also felt that the way the concept was defined it was almost impossible to test it......

Maslow's Hierarchy

...Maslow's hierarchy Donnita P. Etheridge PSY/211 May 11, 2013 Amy Restrepo PhD Maslow's hierarchy Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is presented as a pyramid with the basic needs starting at the bottom. (http://mediapearsoncmg.com/pcp/pcp_94123_psych_axia/lesson_07/select.htm) According to Maslow there are seven needs. The steps are physiological, safety, belongingness and love, esteem, cognitive, aesthetic, and self-actualization. All of the steps will be met at some point in our lives. We can be at different stages during the course of our life. An event can take place and push us either up or down the pyramid. We will start at the bottom of the pyramid with physiological needs. These basic needs have to be met for survival. As humans we require food, drink and rest to be fulfilled. Next, people need to feel protected and safe in their environment. Everyone wants to feel they can walk out of their front door and not be harmed. Family, affection and relationships are important parts in the pyramid. Belonging to a group or being I a relationship helps us grow as individuals. Our society thrives on achievement and success. Success is an endorphin and helps people get the courage to achieve. As we climb the pyramid knowledge and the meaning of self-awareness is an important part of growth. Beauty balance and form are important to everyone’s growth process. The final step that we all want to achieve at some point in our lives is personal growth and fulfillment. ......

Flat Hierarchy

...a“Your team is your boss because you don’t want to let them down. Everyone’s your boss, and no one’s your boss.” (Deutschman) Flat hierarchy system, which follows the “no boss” approach has been proven to be a successful way to run a business, like Fast company. While it is true that flat hierarchy does not follow Greiner’s stages of revolution and evolution that a company should ultimately follow throughout its lifetime it sets itself exclusive to its traditional working manner. It looks for companies with “a long history of innovation […] that doesn’t depend on the ingenuity of a single individual or even a small cadre of geniuses” (Deuschman). This exceptional system recognizes people for their talents and gives them the opportunity to flourish as individuals, while gaining experience and knowledge as a team. I think that Herzberg is mistaken when it comes to motivating employees because he overlooks motivation between coworkers. Group work creates friendships, and friendships lead to help, advice, and motivation. Deutschman’s theory is very useful because he sheds light on the interesting fact that people talk to one another freely without regard for the chain of command. While it is true that a chain of command “pushes” employees to work, such as KITA, described by Herzberg, it does not necessarily follow that employees will do it well, or even do it at all. By being part of a group, every individual is responsible for one another, therefore, it is only normal that......

Foreign Direct Invesments a Brief Description

...econdo la definizione dell’OECD il Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) o come viene chiamato in Italia l‘Investimento diretto all’estero è: “l’ottenimento di un interesse durevole da parte di un’entità residente (investitore diretto) in un’economia, nei confronti un’altra entità residente (Impresa di Investimento diretto) in un’economia diversa da quella dell’investitore diretto“. L’interesse durevole implica l’esistenza di un rapporto a lungo termine tra l’Investitore Diretto (ID) e l’Impresa di Investimento Diretto (IID), quindi un grado significativo di influenza da parte dell’ID sul management dell’IID. L’investimento diretto riguarda la transazione iniziale tra ID e IID e tutte quelle successive, considerando anche quelle con le Imprese affiliate, sia di proprietà e non dell’ID. L’OECD suggerisce che per definire un impresa come ID essa deve possedere almeno il 10% di azioni o potere di voto su un’IID. Questo determina l’esistenza di un rapporto di Investimento diretto quindi la capacità da parte dell’ID di influenzare o partecipare nel management di un’impresa, non richiede il controllo assoluto sull’IID. In concreto gli FDI: Dal 1986 al 2000, il PIL mondiale in termini reali (PIL nominale meno inflazione) è cresciuto ad una media di 2,5% annuo: le esportazioni sono cresciute del 5,6% annuo; mentre i flussi degli FDI sono cresciuti del 17,7% all’anno Gli FDI costituiscono poco più del 10% del totale delle esportazioni mondiali Provengono principalmente dai......
