The Mathews vs. Eldridge Case: A Review of the Significance of Due Process.

In my opinion of the case Mathews vs. Eldridge was a valid claim in such that Mr. Eldridge wanted to be heard and felt as if his social security benefits had been unjustly terminated. In review of the case it is found that the Mathews vs. Eldridge case established a new precedence in deciding if due process is appropriated. The result of the case was that there should be a balance between “the interests affected and the administrative burden.” (www.invisipress.com).
Mr. George Eldridge had been a Social Security beneficiary from June of 1968 up until July of 1972. His original Social Security disability benefits were noted as being because of back strain and chronic anxiety, later Mr. Eldridge contended in a written reply to the administration, after being told his benefits were to become terminated, that he had spinal arthritis and that there was enough formal documentation to determine disability benefits presented at earlier dates. The agency proceeded to terminate his benefits and informed him that he had the right to file a rebuttal within six months to be heard for reconsideration. Mr Eldridge did not do so; though Mr. Eldridge had been offered a post-termination procedure in which an oral evidentiary hearing was to be included, he instead chose to bring suit and argued that Fifth Amendment Rights had been violated. The suit claimed that Mr. Eldridge’s benefits had been terminated in violation of the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment which states that: due process of law is “A fundamental, constitutional guarantee that all legal proceedings will be fair and that one will be given notice of the proceedings and an opportunity to be heard before the government acts to take away one's life, liberty, or property. Also, a constitutional guarantee that a law shall not be…...

...Transformational change in organisations: a self-regulation approach Transformational change in organisations 143 Purpose – The purpose of the present paper is to advance a testable model, rooted on well-established control and self-regulation theory principles, explaining the causal links between change-related sensemaking, interpretation, readiness and subsequent behavioural action. Design/methodology/approach – Following a review of the two motivation theories and clarification of change-related sensemaking, interpretation, and readiness concepts, the paper proposes a series of research propositions (illustrated by a conceptual model) clarifying how these concepts interact with self-regulating mechanisms. In addition, the feedback model exemplifies how cognitive processes triggered by new knowledge structures relate to behavioural action. Findings – The model expands upon other existing frameworks by allowing the examination of multi-level factors that account for, and moderate causal links between, change-related sensemaking, interpretation, readiness, and behavioural action. Suggestions for future research and guidelines for practice are outlined. Practical implications – The variables and processes depicted in the model provide guidelines for change management in organisations, both for individuals and for groups. By eliciting important self-regulating functions, change agents will likely facilitate sensemaking processes, positive interpretations of change, change...

Mktg - vs Pink Case

...Case #2 - Victoria's Secret PINK Question #1. How do you feel about the potential exposure of young girls to PINK? As a customer of Victoria's Secret I do like the PINK brand and the merchandise it offers, but as a mother of two young girls ( 9 and 11 years) I don't agree that young girls (tweens) should be exposed to the VS's PINK brand. Even though the brand is very appealing and advertised as cute and playful I believe that some of the merchandise are very explicit and too sexy for tweens. There are many items in the PINK brand that younger girls can wear but some are more appropriate for adult women. The company classifies the brand as "loungewear" that is young, hip and casual. There are quite a few items, especially panties that are definitely not casual. They are made of lace and barely have any material that covers the body. They look very controversial. Some panties also have wording that various customers may interpret differently, wording such as "tonight's the Night" on front of the panties, or "Have Fun" on the back of the panties. The PINK merchandise shown on the VS website and in the catalogs is advertised by younger models that are posing very sexy and revealing. Their looks are not for young girls to look at. The young customers will look up to the models and try to look like them and that's not right as the tween girls are too young to be exposed to such a provocative advertising (victoriassecret.com). These types of merchandise are definitely not for......

Article Review: Oracle vs. Google

...Article Review Oracle vs. Google Steven Phillips University of Phoenix LAW/421 Mark Rorem June 16, 2014 Article Review: Oracle vs. Google ARTICLE SYNOPSIS Oracle vs. Google is an infringement suit against Google for copyright infringement of Oracle’s Java platform. Due to a convoluted decision by the jury Google may escape the $1 billion suite Oracle is seeking for Google using Java API code. The Jury found that Google did “infringe on the structure of Oracle’s Java copyrights but not the platform in total” and only consisted of 9 lines of code (Oswald 2012). The jury could not agree if Googles use could be considered “fair use”. Googles lawyers see the indecision as grounds for a mistrial calling infringement and fair use are two sides of the same coin (Oswald 2012). LEGAL ISSUE The legal business issues raised in the article is the infringement of Oracle’s Java platform by Google. Google used Java code in the development of its Android mobile operating system. Copyright laws allows for the placement of ownership of creative, but not functional works. According to Oswald, API’s are much more functional than creative being a necessary bit to make software work (2012). MANAGERIAL PERSPECTIVE The legal issues covered by the article covers copyrights and what can be protected using a copyright. As explained by Melvin (2011), certain works cannot be protected such as ideas, procedures, systems, processes and methods of operation. The direction the case is......

Steven Hoskins Case Review

...which sadly lead to the loss of his life in Cornwall on 6th July 2006. Steven had a difficult past; he suffered from a huge amount of bullying and discrimination all throughout his life. There are approximately 1.5 million individuals in the UK who have learning disabilities and 15% of which have secure long term tenancies or live in their own home. Up until July 2006, Steven was amongst that 15%. He required support in order to live within his community, adult social services decided to place him into a bedsit in April 2005 and received 2 hours of extra support each week. However, Steven came to the decision to cancel the additional allocated hour in the August, which then resulted in the council closing his case. However, no one thought about questioning why this was the case and didn’t investigate the matter any further. Steven then went on to meet Darren Stewart, who was already well known to agencies for his previous criminal activities and for being a frequent user of the services. As Steven was desperate to gain new friendships, he accepted Darren Stewart (29), Sarah Bullock (16) and Martin Pollard (21) into his life and home. Sadly, due to his learning disabilities, Steven was unaware of the exploitative nature of their relationships. As none of the agencies investigated the reasons as to why Steven cancelled his allocated additional support, this undoubtedly factored into one of the reasons as to why Steven suffered such a horrific death. After the group became......

Tavion is suffering from a broken arm and abrasions. Tavion’s father advises the hospital that Tavion fell from the jungle gym at the park. Tavion’s father displays reluctance to Tavion being left alone with hospital staff. Emergency room staff suspects that Tavion’s injuries did not happen as his father reported because the abrasions were too clean. Tavion’s abrasions would not have been so clean if brought in immediately after his fall from the jungle gym. While Tavion was undergoing his x-ray, the staff did not allow Tavion’s father in the room, and they were able to question Tavion about his injuries. Tavion verified his father’s story and consistently denied and abuse or fear of his father. Before leaving the hospital, Tavion’s father advises the staff to make note that he should be notified before the release of Tavion’s records to anyone. Tavion’s father advises that Tavion’s parents are divorced and that Tavion’s mother is the noncustodial parent. Tavion’s father requests that Tavion’s records not be released to his mother without his father’s consent. The following weekend Tavion’s mother made a request to the Health Information Department for Tavion’s medical records.

Looking back at her experience at Sugar Bowl, Givens reflected: The past 18 months have afforded me an incredible opportunity; I’ve been exposed to general management much earlier than most of my business school classmates and for that I am grateful. I’m certainly proud of the progress we’ve made with Sugar Bowl. From the outside it would appear that our success has come from leveraging the urban lounge concept. To me, however, that’s not the case—it is the combination of careful cost management together with the new strategy that has propelled our success. My greatest accomplishment, I think, was maintaining tight cost controls through our transition. Bowling is currently experiencing a renaissance, with young professionals enjoying urban lounges like ours and families patronizing big-box entertainment centers. Yet the long term viability of either of these business types is unknown. Who knows what the next trend in entertainment will be? We’ve made a large investment in Sugar Bowl but I do worry that its novelty will be lost on future generations. Plus, I am saddled with debt and my investors are waiting for a return as well.

Critical Review: Standardisation vs Adaptation

...A critical review of Viswanathan, N. & Dickson, P. 2007, ‘The fundamentals of standardizing global marketing strategy’, International Marketing Review, vol. 24, no. 1, pp. 46-63. Introductory Academic Program – Academic English The issue of standardisation versus adaptation, which affects all international business organizations, continues to evolve as markets and technologies develop further. In the article ‘The fundamentals of standardizing global marketing strategy’ (2007), Viswanathan and Dickson contribute to the discussion by examining the considerations related to the standardisation of a multinational company’s marketing practices. The authors subsequently propose a new theoretical framework that identifies three complex drivers to be considered in evaluating the degree of marketing standardisation possible: the similarity of consumer response to the marketing mix, the transmissibility of competitive advantage, and similarities in the amount of economic freedom in different markets. The article imparts perceptive insights on the latter two drivers, which, according to the literature review, have been relatively ignored by researchers in comparison to the role of consumers. This critical review assesses the structure and practicality of the proposed conceptual framework, as well as the comprehensiveness of the authors’ exploration of the issue. The proposed theoretical model, intended for the use of marketing practitioners as an instrument in......
