“They deported my brother because they say he is economic migrant not political refugee
Huh! They know nothing about how they treat gypsies in Central Europe. But what do you know? How can you help me?”

In this essay I will describe the client and my reactions to the client. What are power, rank, oppression, minority, racism, diversity, prejudices, and worldview? How I will work in anti- oppressive way. What I can offer this client. What difficulties I envisage. Conclusion. ,
An economic migrant is someone who comes from the EEA, and who makes a voluntary choice to leave their home country and seek work else where. They have a legal right to travel and to work in different countries within the EU. A political refugee is someone who flees from a stat or country or regime because their political views leave them in danger of persecution even death so that they flee to a friendly nation for protection.

My client is a 22 year old Eastern European Caucasian male. He is of average height, has dark brown eyes and short jet black hair. His clothes of jeans, a sweat shirt and trainers are of a shabby appearance and he emits a strong unpleasant body odour. His spoken English is quite good although at times it is not always clear, so I feel that I will have to do a lot of clarification with him. At this stage I do not think it is necessary to have an interpreter, but should I deem it necessary at any stage for the benefit of my client and treatment outcome I will have one. Having an interpreter does at times bridge the language and cultural gap, even though it may not be the ideal communication medium. It can also have a negative effect for the client, the therapists is not trained in the use of interpreters, unskilled…...

Ethics

...Ethics and Social Responsibilities Ethics and Social Responsibilities Abstract Virtue ethics present the idea that the actions of individuals are based on innate moral values (Hickman, 2006). This type of theory focuses more he type of person an individual should be rather than the actions taken by an individual. Deontological ethics emphasizes moral laws and duty of individuals and argue that individuals are not morally obligated to seek the best outcome for their actions, but rather they are obligated to perform those actions that are in accordance with moral duty and rules (Hickman, 2006). Utilitarianism is a theory that bases decision making on doing the greatest good for the greatest number of people (Hickman, 2006). This theory proposes that the suffering of a few is acceptable if the actions will benefit the greater public. Similarities and differences between Virtue ethics, Deontological ethics and Utilitarianism These three theories are similar in one particular way. All three theories deal with the results of actions of individuals. They try to identify the best possible result depending on the beliefs of individuals. No matter the path the theories take, their motive is to determine the possible result from the decisions taken by an individual. The difference of these theories therefore arises from the mode of determining the result to be achieved from making a particular decision. In virtue ethics...

...Police corruption is a very gray area because people and society disagree on what is classified as corruption. One of the most famous police officers in the United States is Frank Serpico. Serpico had pride in wearing his police uniform, but it quickly dissipated when he realized his partner was picking up pad money (payments by store owners to ensure cops would be there in case of trouble, but also ignore minor violations of the store owners and their customers). Serpico did not want anything to do with that and didn't want the money, earning him distrust of those officers doing it. Over the past 12 years he rose to the rank of detective, and when he discovered corruption was rampant in the divisions he started to talk to police supervisors, but nothing was ever done. In 1970-1971 he and David Durk went to the New York times and participated in a expose of police corruption. Two types of corruption most police fall under are grass eating and meat eating as defined by the Knapp Commission. Grass eating is a misconduct that ocasionally occurs in a normal everyday scope of police work, Meat eating is when police officers actively seek out illicit ways to make money, usually through bribes, threats, or intimidation. Most corruption is for a ......

...Ethics An ethical dilemma is a situation that offers potential benefit or gain and that may also be considered unethical (Schermerhorn, 2011, p.58). I define an unethical situation as one in which I have to do something I don’t feel good about (Esmé, 2009). Some examples of ethical dilemmas that managers face include Discrimination, Sexual harassment, Conflicts of interest, Product safety, Use of organizational resources and etc. (Trevino, 2006. DeGeorge, 2005). Let’s choose ethical courses of action considering personal factors, the situational context, organizational culture, and the external environment in Kay Smith’s case and Marty Jose’s case below. Kay Smith’s case Kay Smith is one of your top-performing subordinates. She has shared with you her desire to apply for promotion to a new position just announced in a different division of the company. This will be tough on you since recent budget cuts mean you will be unable to replace anyone who leaves, at least for quite some time. Kay knows this and, in all fairness, has asked your permission before she submits an application. It is rumored that the son of a good friend of your boss is going to apply for the job. Although his credentials are less impressive than Kay’s, the likelihood is that he will get the job if she doesn’t apply. What will you do? In this case, Kay Smith wants to apply for promotion to a new position of the company. I will be unable to replace her for a while and her sudden turnover will...

...we discuss possible ways to implement the seed selection and the discovery of good pages. We present results of experiments run on the World Wide Web indexed by AltaVista and evaluate the performance of our techniques. Our results show that we can effectively filter out spam from a significant fraction of the web, based on a good seed set of less than 200 sites. creation of a large number of bogus web pages, all pointing to a single target page. Since many search engines take into account the number of incoming links in ranking pages, the rank of the target page is likely to increase, and appear earlier in query result sets. Just as with email spam, determining if a page or group of pages is spam is subjective. For instance, consider a cluster of web sites that link to each other’s pages repeatedly. These links may represent useful relationships between the sites, or they may have been created with the express intention of boosting the rank of each other’s pages. In general, it is hard to distinguish between these two scenarios. However, just as with email spam, most people can easily identify the blatant and brazen instances of web spam. For example, most would agree that if much of the text on a page is made invisible to humans (as noted above), and is irrelevant to the main topic of the page, then it was added with the intention to mislead. Similarly, if one finds a page with thousands of URLs referring to hosts like buy-canon-rebel-300d-lens-case.camerasx.com,......

Dr Rank

...backdrop for the debate about roles of people in society. Ibsen uses the minor character, Dr. Rank, to help develop the theme of conflicts within society. This, in turn, creates connections with the plot. Dr. Rank's function in the play is to foreshadow, symbolize, and reflect upon the truth of life and society and to break down the barrier between appearance and reality. One function of Dr. Rank in the play is to foreshadow events to come. Upon Rank's introduction in Act I, the reader is immediately given insight into the conflict Nora will face with Krogstad. Rank provides the reader with minute details into Krogstad's past that will help in understanding his desperate blackmail attempt. The reader can begin to see this in Rank's statement to Nora and Mrs. Linde: "Oh, it's a lawyer, Krogstad, a type you wouldn't know. His character is rotten to the root--but even he began chattering all-importantly about how he had to live" (1574). Rank also foreshadows the change of society that is a constant throughout the play. One can begin to see this foreshadowing in the statement Rank makes about the morally sick being forgiven, "That's the concept that's turning society into a sanatorium" (1574). Through these insights, Dr. Rank provides the reader with an ability to form opinions important to the plot. Ibsen also uses Rank as a symbolic tool, enabling the reader to look deeper into the plot. Dr. Rank is used as a symbol of a dying society as the main characters in the play......

...MILITARY STUDIES CAPSTONE CLIFTON WEIGEL ETHICAL DILEMA IN THE MILITARY ETHICAL DILEMA IN THE MILITARY In the United States Army we are told to live by a set of “warrior Ethos” such as loyalty, respect, and self-less service but many times in our jobs we face ethical dilemmas that require us to not only invoke the Army values but our own personal code of ethics and morals. During my time in the US Army I have had the chance to serve as a recruiter and currently as an Army Reserve career counselor, in both jobs I have had to do some form of recruiting either as a traditional recruiter or by trying to recruit Soldiers in the Inactive Ready Reserve (IRR) to rejoining Troop Program Units (TPU). These jobs are rewarding but highly stressful. As a recruiter I was on a mission usually of having to recruit six people per month as an Active Guard and Reserve (AGR) or Army Reserve Recruiter, this was actually six times the mission of my active duty counterparts and in many occasion I was the only reserve recruiter in my recruiting station. During my time in recruiting there were many rumors about the lack of ethics within the Army Recruiting Command, such as recruiters forging documents, concealing law or medical issues, and even having sexual relationships with potential recruits or their parents to get them to join. This has been a stigma of recruiters for as long as I can remember even when I was recruited in 1987 my parents, teachers and friends all thought......

The rating systems that will discuss in this paper are the following: forced-ranking, absolute-rating and relative-rating system. The author will discuss weather forced ranking is a good performance management system, the different between the absolute-rating and relative-rating systems, an what would the author rely on as a rating system and can a absolute-rating system be devise that would guarantee differentiation among workers, Rank & Yank: Legitimate Performance Improvement Tool Or Ruthless and Unfair Management 1. Do you think forced ranking is a good performance management system? Why or Why not. The forced ranking system is not a good performance management system because it’s been proven to discriminate against workers, it fails to promote inclusiveness and teamwork among workers, and it is costly because it increases employee turnover. According to Gomez “the intent of the forced-ranking system is to improve the performance level of an operation by getting rid of the bottom ten percent of performers and hiring replacements that will perform at a higher level” (p. 231). Forced ranking has been employed by a number of companies but some legal challenges have been made (Gomez-Mejia, Balkin, & Cardy, 2007). For example, a lawsuit contends that Microsoft’s grading system is discriminatory. A class-action suit brought on behalf of African Americans and women......

...Military Ethics Marvin J. Harris United States Army Sergeants Major Academy Department of Military History Class 64 SGM Rivera November 26, 2013 Abstract Since 1775, the birth of the United States Army, many men and women have served in the United States military. These individuals have given their lives in defense of democracy, both at home and abroad. The oath of enlistment these individuals took to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” is a major obligation. Whether it was through the draft or a voluntary commitment, these individuals are willing to give their lives in defense of their country. Along with their commitment to defense, these soldiers also committed themselves to be ethical professionals as well. The burden of being a member of the United States military is different than any other profession. Military members must maintain a high standard of ethics both on and off duty. Leaders in the United States military always enforce a high standard of both professionalism and ethics. Failure to maintain ethical standards and a high sense of professionalism may lead to a lack of trust within the command and the service. It may also lead to a lack of faith in the military by the general public. Ethics is the foundation that the United States military is built upon. Military Ethics Before a paper can be written on Military Ethics, one must define the following words: ethics, values and morals. Ethics are standards by......

Ethics

...utilitarianism, and deontological ethics are key in understanding the foundation of ethics and putting those virtues into complete action. Along with the discussion of these three theories, a discussion of each theory and personal experience will be expressed. The theory of virtue ethics, also known as character ethics theory, emphasizes that character matters above everything else and the role of character and virtue in the philosophy of morals is emphasized, rather than acting to bring about good consequences. This approach also focuses more on the integrity of the person than the decision or behavior itself (Trevino & Nelson, 2011). No matter the situation an honorable person is someone who is kindhearted and compassionate; not because they are out to gain favors or do their duty but because this is their character. Virtue ethics theories, unlike deontological theories, do not intend predominantly to identify universal principles that can be applied in all or any moral situations (Athanassoulis, 2010). Dealing with one's actions to the extent that other people are affected is what morality focuses on primarily. Morality requires one to consider others for who they are and not because they may benefit them. According to morality, virtue ethics is considered self-centered because its primary emphasis is with character and well-being. Also, virtue ethics unites the requirements of morality and self-interest requirements. This allows virtue ethics to not be......

...Wal-Mart. Because of their great success in the U.S., it only makes sense they would travel abroad and attempt to bring their services to other countries. Wal-Mart devised and produced a 36 page, global policy for ethics, which states the following: According to "Walmart Statement of Ethics" (n.d.),  “Each business organization Walmart operates is expected to have a complete set of policies providing guidance to associates for whatever country they are working in”. “Walmart also publishes several “global policies,” which are designed to give associates a set of rules that are the same for all locations.” “This Statement of Ethics is an example of a global policy.” “If any part of this Statement of Ethics goes against local policies or laws, then the local policy or law must always be followed.” “It’s our responsibility to know all of the local laws and policies that might affect our area of business.” “If you’re not sure about any local laws or policies, please talk to your manager, the Walmart in-country Legal Department, or the Global Ethics Office.” “Some local laws, practices, or even local customs could be more relaxed than our Statement of Ethics.” “If you find yourself in this kind of situation, you should always rely on our Statement of Ethics.” It is great that Wal-Mart produced this ethical guide and stated that all employees should follow the guide and the local laws or policies, but it does not mention following local customs and......

...Henry Thompson Contemporary Ethics Prof. Prettiman Thucydides versus Plato on the nature of the Good Life. Some have claimed that Thucydides is making empirical claims, whereas Plato is making normative claims. Is that true? Support your answer in your paper. Plato and Thucydides together had strikingly dissimilar views on their tactic on the good life. Scholars have demanded that Plato is making normative rights, whereas Thucydides is making empirical claims. Let's start by taking a look at Plato. Plato's philosophy on the decent life was based on the confidence that all has an objective or use that is classically suited for asset, beauty, fairness, and excellence of the exact thing, and all will depend on the conclusion of that role. He reflects the decent life as being reached finished the flawless love and lack of wish.  Plato opinions the good lifetime as the disorder a person exhibits entire virtue. Virtue inclines to come after the nonappearance of desires, or prospects, so true contentment means being satisfied to the opinion one doesn’t have needs. He’s persuaded that everyone has the control to be virtuous. He too believed the gentleman and citizen are the formation of the City; they are its stuff (like slaves) and its broods, and the separate has no right to assert separate rights against the Urban. In this circumstance, justice is offered as a compromise, and appreciated, not as good in itself, nonetheless for lack of control to do wrong; no gentleman......

...Ethics Paper Dekitcha Gallow MGT/498 SheilaMarie Buendia University of Phoenix 04/11/2016 Ethics Paper Being honest, having integrity, and being fair in any situation is very important when it comes to business ethics and also in the success of an organization. The thing about being ethical is that some people do not know the difference between something that is considered ethical behavior and something that is considered unethical behavior. According to (Johnson, 2008), strong ethical values also help businesses gain a competitive advantage. This simply means that the company wants to be sure that every employee is behaving in an ethical manner and is refraining from participating in any type of unethical behavior. In order to better understand how important it is to maintain ethical value we first need to understand 1.) what is ethics and what role does an organization play when it comes to social responsibility? 2.) Examine the various types of shareholders that influence’s a company strategy. 3.) Name a company that has overstepped its boundaries and done something that was considered to be unethical behavior and socially irresponsible behavior. Being a company with a strong set of values and strong ethics does impact the success of an organization. When you think about it the way that an organization operates does affect how that company is viewed by outside entities such as, customers, vendors, and suppliers. Just one breech of ethics could cause a......
