Question 1 The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines “prejudice”, definition 2c as an irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, group, a race, or their supposed characteristics. Prejudice, to me is having an unfavourable attitude toward someone without good reasoning. For instance, an example of gender prejudice is men earning more money than women on average -- even if they are similarly qualified and performing the same tasks. Rather than paying their workers based on their performance and experience, many employers pay a fraction of their employees more simply because they are male while the others receive less due to the fact that they are not. This is not the only factor that plays in role in the sharp contrast in pay between males and females, however it does play a part. There have been many forms of prejudice throughout history that exist even to this day and have become more widespread such as colorism, ableism, sizeism, religious intolerance, racism, and nativism. Colorism is a form of prejudice based on the color of a person’s skin. It is prevalent among people who share the same ethnicity or race but it can also occur in multi-ethnic and non-white communities. In most cases, colorism is in favour of those with lighter skin tones. Albeism, yet another type of prejudice -- is not as widely known as its counterparts. It refers to prejudice against people who have disabilities that can be easily perceived or seen such as those who are wheelchair-bound, deaf, blind, or suffer from Down’s syndrome. The visibly disabled are faced with prejudice from just about anyone including -- but not limited…...

Sally and Jameson Case Study Question 1

...Question 1 If we ignore tax considerations and assume that Sally Jameson is free to sell her options at any time after she joins Telstar she has several chooses. She can either choose to take the cash bonus, either take the options and sell it, or she can take the option and keep it until it is worth use. Let’s compare the situations : 1- She takes the cash bonus and decide to invest it in a 5-year bond which rate is 6,02%. So at the end she will win 5310$ (=5000*1,0602). 2- She takes the options in order to sell it. Let’s assume that it is easy to find someone who want to buy the option at the value of the call option. Seeing the exhibit 3, the standard deviation of the Telstar common stock is 30%. S= 18,75 K= 35 r= 6,02% t= 5 σ= 30% So C= 2,9245 Assuming that she can easily and quickly find someone to buy her options, she can sell it at 3000*2,9245= 8773,5$ Then she could even invest these 8773,5$ in a 5years bond and win 8773,5*1,0602=9301,7$ 3- She keeps the options until it is worth use it and sell her shares. If she wants to earn more than she could have won by taking the cash bonus we have to find the value of the stock that would make her win more than 5301$ (X-35)*3000=5301 => X= 36,767 So when the value of the stocks is greater than 36,767, it will be worth using the option and sell the shares after. Sally Jameson will win more than 5301. If she want to earn more than she could have won by selling the options...

Hp Case Study Question 1

...1. In what way is a universal power supply a postponement strategy? Previously, printers in North American and European markets required different power supplies and associated fusers in the main engine of the printer. North American Printers required a 110-volt power supply where European printers required a 220-volt power supply. HP’s Japanese partners manufactured the printer engines offshore. HP had to specify the requirements of the two types of printers at least fourteen weeks ahead because of the long lead times for engine manufacturing. With earlier printer models, HP’s inaccurate forecasts led to either an excess or shortage of inventory in either the North American or European DCs. Because the printers required different power supplies it was not easy to have inventory from one market shipped to the other to be reconfigured and sold in that market. With a universal power supply, the same printer can be sold in both the North American and European markets. Because they can be sold in both markets, this allows for HP to aggregate the demand worldwide instead of forecasting demand in each individual market separately. This will ensure a more accurate forecast. There will still be a long lead-time for manufacturing; however, HP can then delay the individual market forecasts by 2.5 months. Once individual market forecasts are made and the printer engines are shipped to the appropriate DCs is when and where product customization can be made such as fax modems,......

Religious Studies

...Religious studies is the academic field of multi-disciplinary, secular study of religious beliefs, behaviors, and institutions. It describes, compares, interprets, and explains religion, emphasizing systematic, historically based, and cross-cultural perspectives. While theology attempts to understand the nature of transcendent or supernatural forces (such as deities), religious studies tries to study religious behavior and belief from outside any particular religious viewpoint. Religious studies draws upon multiple disciplines and their methodologies including anthropology, sociology, psychology, philosophy, and history of religion. Religious studies originated in the nineteenth century, when scholarly and historical analysis of the Bible had flourished, and Hindu and Buddhist texts were first being translated into European languages. Early influential scholars included Friedrich Max Müller, in England, and Cornelius P. Tiele, in the Netherlands. Today religious studies is practiced by scholars worldwide. In its early years, it was known as Comparative Religion or the Science of Religion and, in the USA, there are those who today also know the field as the History of religion (associated with methodological traditions traced to the University of Chicago in general, and in particular Mircea Eliade, from the late 1950s through to the late 1980s). The field is known as Religionswissenschaft in Germany and Sciences des religions in the French-speaking world. The term......

Religious Studies in Theism

...Philosophy of Culture Summary Sheet The second module covers Philosophy of Culture. This encompasses the three main world views. These views are theism, transcendentalism, and naturalism. First Week - Introduction The first class covered the introduction ot the Philosophy of Culture course by having us answer seven thought-provoking questions. Each question, though simple, was worded in such a way as to make one think about it in-depth. These questions dealt with our perception of reality and our thoughts concerning life and its meaning. It challenged our religious faith and made us declare not only what we believed, but why we believed it. We read “An Atheist’s Values”, a statement of secular humanism. We then wrote a paragraph describing the views of this type of naturalist. Although brotherly love, courage, cheerfulness, and dignity are promoted in the statement, no basis or foundation upon which these virtues should come is given other than the author’s opinion. We read and discussed in class the three basic world views. By studying these views, we will be able to understand the mindset of those whose world views differs from ours. Second Week – Overview of World Views Theism is the belief in one superior being, a creator or god. This can be broken down even further into monotheistic and polytheistic beliefs. Monotheistic religions, such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, believe in one god. Polytheistic religions, such as those practiced by the ancient......

Religious Study

...Religious studies are a broad, multidisciplinary academic discipline to study the beliefs, and behaviors pertaining to different world religions. According to the author, unlike other major academic disciplines, the study of religion is not based on any unique methodology but is derived from several other fields of academia. This field of study is so broad that any attempt to develop a unique methodology would limit the scope of understanding and further research into the subject. Hence, religious studies derive inputs from several other fields of study and provide its scholars with a plethora of these derived methodologies. The absence of any unique methodology is dealt by incorporating several other academic fields and developing different approaches for interpretation and research. Scholars, who look at religion from the perspective of society, use one such approach. They look at both sides of the coin and study how society shapes religion and how religion has been shaped by the various societal factors. They also try to analyze the changing symbiosis of religion and society by adopting either a quantitative approach of statistical surveys or a qualitative approach. Another such methodology involves anthropological study of religion. The rituals, practices and behaviors of tribal groups provide a deep insight into the oldest form of religious habits, which have been carried for ages. This approach studies the traditions that have been carried by all these traditions from...

...Phuong Nguyen Caring and Compassion 1/ Following the example of the Sisters of Jesus who lived among the tapirape as midwives, and living a caring and sharing life with the these people are possible for anyone of us in global society. The important thing that we all need to learn from the good example of the Sisters of Jesus is living the gospel without a connection with power because power represents the privilege of a certain group such as social, political, or cultural groups, but not the majority of people. First of all, living the gospel is living with the true attitude of compassion and caring towards the other who is in need, and being willing to help the other without any prejudice. In particular, when we find anyone who need help, in spite that he is not close to us, not from our cultural group, racial group, or nationality etc, we have to fill ourselves with compassion and with love to treat the other right. It is just like how the Sisters chose to live with the Tapirape. Despite all the hardships that they were facing, they helped the tribe wholeheartedly by all means without expecting to have any return. The Sisters helped the tribe with their orchards, shared understanding, and endurance throughout their daily strive for food, maintain their language, culture, customs and religion. This concept is also demonstrated by Jesus. During his mission on earth, he never shared any prejudice toward the other in spite of whichever group he belongs to, either Jews or......

...and a female, and it is We who have made you into nations and tribes, that you may recognize each other (not that you may despise each other).Verily, the noblest of you in the sight of God is the most righteous of you." Qur’an 49:13 This quotation addresses the creation of all humans and the equality and how we should not think we are superior to others when we are all the same. Prophet (PBUH) said "God does not look at your shapes or your colours but He looks at your hearts (intentions) and your deeds. Creatures are the dependants of God and the closest among them to God are indeed the most useful to His dependants."  e) Woman have the most important role in Muslim Society Some Muslims would consider this a debatable and question the equality between men and woman in Islam, are woman inferior to men? They have different roles as a whole and man seems to be more dominant in terms of financially and working in terms of marriage and where the woman seems to be behind the man and just follows the man, in terms of woman dressing they are respected by the modesty and being covered will decrease the chances of being molested and Some people would say that woman in Islam are not allowed access to Education (Malala Yousafzai) who was nearly shot dead because she wanted to attend schools. In terms of their modesty they do serve an important role in the Muslim society because as mothers they can be at home taking care of the children whereas man can go to work. There is a...

...How far were the teachings of jesus regarding the kingdom of god to be consistent with his background? The proclamation of the kingdom is a major feature of the teaching of Jesus in the Synoptic Gospels, e.g. Mark 1 : 15, as against the epistles, where Jesus and his return are preached. But is this an already present or future kingdom? What does it mean to say that the Kingdom of God is ‘at hand’? Many scholars, particularly CH Dodd, would argue that in Jesus’ teaching he is showing us that the Kingdom of God has already arrived with no future crisis. This interpretation is called realised or present eschatology. It can be argued that through the gospels Jesus is shown to fulfil (OT)prophecies relating to the coming of the Kingdom of God. “the blind receive their sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raise and the poor have good news brought to them.” (Matt. 11 : 5) Here Jesus appears to make a direct reference back to Isaiah 35 which looks forward to the Kingdom of God when “the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf unstopped; the lame shall leap like deer and the tongue of the speechless sing for joy” (vs5-6). It can be seen from this that the Kingdom of God had arrived; Jesus appeared to be saying that these were si gns that the prophecies had been fulfilled and the kingdom was present. The parables, a central source of eschatological teaching, also can interpreted by such scholars to show that the Kingdom had......

Each book according to (Ehrman, 2006) contained in the New Testament has its author, context, theme, and a persuasive principle. When the books are combined, they contain one of the history’s most fruitful, different, intricate, and captivating writings. The books in the New Testament are divided into three categories, which are the Gospels, the Epistles, and the Book of Revelation. The Gospels as (Berkhof, 2004) states are the books Matthew, Mark, and Luke. These books consist of a similar story and differ in some additions, special emphases, and exclusions according to the author and the messages being passed across.
