The Stanford Prison Experiment was unethical for a number of reasons. According to McLeod (2007), for research to be considered as being ethical, there should be informed consent from the participants. Informed consent can only result if all participants have been given adequate information on the purpose of the research and the procedures to be used in the study. Additionally, informed consent depends on the participant’s full understanding of any dangers they may face during the research. However, in the Stanford case, participants were not fully debriefed on risks of participation in the experiment (Chang, 2015). Additionally, the researcher, Zimbardo promoted an unpredictable research that himself could not predict the outcome. Consequently, any consent may have been gotten through deception (McLeod, 2007). Again, the research was unethical as it exposed participants to unknown dangers. As a result, two participants had to remove from the experiment before its conclusion. Indeed, participants playing the role of prisoners were exposed to psychological and physical abuse. For instance, one participant who played the role of a prisoner had to be released before the due time because of uncontrollable bursts of screaming and crying after being subjected to abuse (Rubina, 2015). Again, the Stanford research was unethical since it was ended prematurely before fully debriefing participants about its success or failure. More importantly, the study broke research ethics by exposing participants to emotional trauma. Research ethics required the researcher to put in place adequate measure to protect participants from all forms of emotional and physical harm (Chang, 2015).

Interpretation Essay

...down, is “Stan” by Marshall Mathers (Eminem). “Stan” is by far one of Eminem’s greatest songs ever made, it’s one of the songs that made him so popular. I don’t listen to rap but I love listening to “Stan.” It’s one of the deepest songs written and produced by Eminem. This song goes really in-depth about love, suicide, depression, obsession, and murder. I am choosing to interpret this song so you can see it from my point of view. Stan, is the main character from the song he’s a crazy obsessed fan of Eminem. At one point in the song it shows Stan writing a letter to Eminem, he has pictures of Eminem plastered all over his wall. A second part that makes Stan so obsessed is he dyed his hair blond like Eminem’s in the song too. In the first few verses of the song this person “Stan” is a big fan of Eminem and pours his heart out into these letters he writes him. In the letters, he talks about how messed up his life was and still is and how they’re childhoods were so much alike. Including how they should become best friends and they were born from the ghetto, had abusive dads neglected as children’s, and so on. Stan basically explains why he loves Eminem so much, and why they should be together (as friends). As the song goes further, Stan starts getting really mad because Eminem isn’t replying to his letters and he can’t understand why somebody he worships so much can’t even take the time to write him a letter back. Stan, starts getting really depressed. In the song Stan rips......

Stan Lee Genius

...Stan Lee: Genius Award Daniel Orminski HUM/102: Introduction to the Humanities- The Renaissance to the Present July 29, 2013 Rachelle Williams Stan Lee: Genius Award According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary (2013), “A genius is a person with extraordinary intellectual power, especially as manifested in creative activity.” Stan Lee may not have the amount of intelligence or inventions as Albert Einstein or Benjamin Franklin, but he is a genius in his own in way. Stan Lee is responsible for some of the best known characters in literature, except there is not an Oliver Twist or a Huckleberry Fin in these books. These characters are super heroes and super villains trying to save the world from destruction. Born during the great depression, Stanley Martin Lieber was born on December 28, 1922 in New York City. After Stan changed his last name to Lee, he was hired as an office assistant by Timely Comics in 1939. In the early 1940’s he was promoted to an interim editor. Stan Lee also served time with the United States Army during World War II. During the war, Lee worked as an illustrator and writer for the Army (Stan Lee, 2013). After World War II, Stan Lee continued working with Timely Comics, which was now known as Marvel Comics. In order to compete with DC comics and their new Justice League of America comics, Marvel instructed Lee to create a new comic series. With this, Stan Lee created the Fantastic Four in 1961. After this, a multitude of new characters were......

Leader Profile

...Leader Profile 1 The person who has influenced me the most in my life is my mentor, Stanley (Stan) King, CPA. He is the reason why I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) today. I have known him all of my life and have admired him as long as I can remember. Stan is known as a man of great integrity and credibility. In the Leadership Challenge book1, it discusses what people look most for in a leader is someone who is honest, forward-looking, inspiring and competent. Stan has all of these qualities and characteristics which is why he is well respected among his peers, subordinates and those who know him. I feel as though Stan has both types of leadership characteristics; transitional and transformational. Stan is the type of person who helps others by creating options, opportunities, building commitment and facilitating relationships. I think that he has a charismatic way of inspiring others to achieve and succeed. He treats others with respect regardless of their position. He is very confident in his own abilities and not afraid when to let people know he does not know the answer. If he does not know the answer, he will try find it let you know about it and provide the resource for your records. This is a form of credibility and developing competence not only for himself but for others as well. As a leader, below are the areas in the leadership scorecard that I believe Stan rates: 1 Kouzes, J. & Posner, B. (2008). The leadership challenge (4th ed.). John......

Unauthorized Practice of Law

...and Mrs. Stan Smith have contacted their old pal, Polly Paralegal. They have asked her questions regarding the State of North Carolina’s grounds for divorce. Mr. Stan Smith wants to know if grounds for divorce in North Carolina include adultery. Mrs. Stan Smith would like to know the answer to a similar question as she has just found out that Mr. Stan Smith has committed adultery. Mr. and Mrs. Smith believe that Polly Paralegal will be able to answer their questions; after all she does work in the legal field right? Polly Paralegal does not have a license to practice law! Therefore, she should not answer certain questions! Mr. Stan Smith asks a very specific question, “Do the grounds for divorce in North Carolina include adultery?” Polly Paralegal should not answer Mr. Stan Smith’s question. There would definitely be some Unauthorized Practice of Law being committed if she does. Polly must advise Mr. Stan Smith to consult with an attorney, she may even refer him to the attorney she works for if divorce if possible. Now if Polly were not a paralegal, maybe she is a dog groomer instead, it would not be considered unauthorized practice of law for her to answer this question. But, Polly is a Paralegal; therefore, Polly should not answer this question. (Orlik, 2008). Now Polly must also deal with Mrs. Stan Smith. This must be awkward for her! Polly Paralegal must also remember ethics in this situation. She is a friend to both sides. Polly must be careful if Mr. Stan Smith......

Stan

...He’s reluctant to talk about thing that could possibly cause him pain. 2. If Stan asked you (as his psychoanalytic therapist) what you are thinking about him, would you disclose your perceptions and reactions? Why or why not? I think it depends on the client. I wouldn’t want to say too much in fear of countertransference. I wouldn’t want to get in the way of the clients ability to voice their feelings. 3. In free-associating to the word “father”, Stan says “My father never saw me”. How would you respond? Maybe he was busy and just didn’t realize that you felt that way. He might have felt like yu were okay even without him being on top of you constantly. 4. What are some potential therapeutic advantages of working with Stan’s transference toward his therapist? It could possibly help bring up feelings that he has toward someone or something. 5. As the therapist, how might you deal with your potential countertransference? I think it would be better to try and control all emotions I will have when talking to my client. I feel that countertransference may alter the clients’ reactions and/or feelings about a situation. Although it may not be easy controlling my own emotions toward a situation, I feel it’s best to keep my personal opinions to myself. 6. To what extent is it important to focus on how Stan’s past experiences are played out in his session with his psychoanalytic therapist? Stan was very conscious about what he would say to his therapist and worried......

Post Modern Approach

...therapies (Solution-Focused and Narrative therapies) in Stan’s case is optimism or positive view for the client’s life and the client, himself. Common Techniques: - Miracle question of Solution-Focused therapy and construction of preferred life story in Narrative therapy provided an opportunity for Stan to focus on the positive prospects of his life. - The other common and significant technique used in the two therapies was empowerment. At the end of both therapy sessions, the therapist gave positive directions and feedbacks of the client’s progress in order to indicate the client’s control and capability in his life. 2. - Reality Therapy might be combines with the Postmodern approaches. It is because the two perspective share some theories: 1) emphasis on possible choices or alternates on clients’ life, 2) solution-focused instead of problem-focused and 3) non-pathological approaches - Existential Therapy also hold two similar therapeutic views: 1) clients’ freedom to change/choose the direction of their life and 2) seek for meaning of life to clients. Some of the commonalities between the solutions focussed and narative therapies include: * Both allowed Stan to focus on what is working/has worked in his life and to focus on the positive aspects of these. * both also had an element of encouragement or empowerment to them, thus linking back to a positive focus. * both focus on solutions, rather than search for the systemic issue of the problem at......

Case 10

...quickly. He received recognition from the CEO. David had goals of getting a high level job at corporate in Chicago in a few years. David was out to lunch with the vice principal, Stan, and other key personnel. Stan praised everyone for their success, but explained that in order to gain more profit and give bigger bonuses they need to move towards more automation. Jane, from accounting explained how this would not be profitable in this facility. David expressed his concern: they are the largest source of employment in their town and hundreds of people would lose their jobs. Stan thinks that being able to show proof in records and numbers that the town would be okay with the switch. Jane spoke up again saying that the analyses run on this plant, show it would benefit more staying as is. Stan requested Jane to fix her estimated numbers and come back to him when she is finished. Stan noted that pulling this off would warrant their yearly bonus to be triple their salary. David had much concern for the employees and how he was going to tell them what was going to happen. Questions: 1) Stan has the leader ship characteristics of a transactional leader. A transactional leader attempts to create employee satisfaction through negotiating, or bartering, for desired behaviors or levels of performance. Stan exemplifies this type of leader because he is trying ton get David and Jane to change the plant into automation and is trying to negotiate with them by tripling their salaries......

Week 6 Assignment 1

...were at the required age went to the car dealership looking to purchase a new car. Stan the salesman made an offer to Jim and Laura and they both agreed to the terms. They asked that Stan the salesman hold the car for a day. He told them to put down $100 dollars to hold the car and that it would go to the final purchase of the car or that it would be refundable. Jim and Laura just wanted to hold the car so that it would still be there the next day. With mutual understanding Stan the salesman keeps the car and calls the next day to confirm when the purchase would be completed. I do believe that Jim and Laura did not enter into a legal contract that is binding. There are several factors that do not exist that would show a legally binding agreement. Like a contract that both parties would sign, agreeing to the purchase of the car. Having a contract in writing that both parties signed could show the sale of the car. Stan the salesman let Jim and Laura have a chance to test drive several cars that they were interested in Jim and Laura found the car that they wanted and that would suit their needs so Stan made an offer. I assume that that Jim and Laura wanted to think about the offer so they gave Stan some money to hold the car but on the way home they decided that it was too much money so they rejected the offer. The only thing that was in agreement that day was for Stan to hold that car. By Stan telling them that they had entered into a contract is just a scare tactic.......

...you were Stan? What alternative form of business organization would you recommend and why? In this case Stan is thinking about starting a toxic waste disposal business. He is considering operating this business as a sole proprietorship. Although this is a valid business organization it also carries numerous disadvantages, if not all aspects of the company are taken into account. I will explain some possible conflicts Stan can encounter as a sole proprietorship, and I will recommend an alternative form of business organization that may become more beneficial. After taking into consideration the two different operations I will come to a conclusion of which business organization may be more preferable in Stan’s situation. A sole proprietorship is ideal for individuals operating a low risk and small business organization since there are many disadvantages with certain risks, or when the company begins to grow. Starting a toxic waste disposal with transportation raises many concerns. This operation is highly at risk for an incident and a sole proprietorship may not be the best business organization. As a sole proprietorship Stan would carry the business on his own without adopting any other form of business organization. Stan would have unlimited personal liability with any incident being fully responsible. One of the major issues is the environmental impact if there happens to be a leak from the disposal site or a spill from one of the transportation trucks. Stan being the...

Did Jim and Laura Buy a Car?

...in car payments. Once at the dealership, Jim and Laura meet Stan Salesman. Stan shows them several vehicles and Jim and Laura test drive several of the cars. Jim and Laura particularly like a blue 4-door sedan. Therefore, they agreed to give Stan Salesman a $100.00 deposit to hold the car for a day. Stan Salesman does not give them the receipt but guarantees that the $100.oo is refundable. No documents were signed before leaving the dealership. They then say the next day, Stan Salesman calls them to ask them when they would like to take delivery of the car. But Jim and Laura decided they didn’t want the car any longer after leaving the dealership, so they tell Stan Salesman that they wanted their $100.00 deposit back. Stan insists that the $100.00 was a deposit on the car and was meant to be part of the contract. Stan is very persistent and insistent that they have contracted to buy the car, therefore the $100.00 will be applied to the purchase price of the car. My good friends Jim and Laura never being in a situation were shocked and angry as not only do they not want to spend that money, but now feel as though they are being duped by Stan Salesman. So Jim and Laura set an appointment with a lawyer which is in a few days. But first came to me for some advice, (knowing I’ve taken a business course or two); with a dilemma they’re having at a local car dealership. Now from what I’m comprehending they gave Stan Salesman a $100 to hold a blue 4-door sedan for one until......

Business Law Advice

...Stan needs advice about a contract he has entered into with James for painting Stan’s home. To decide what the best advice in this situation is one must examine the contract to determine enforceability, examine possible remedies, and also ways to prevent this type of incident in the future. ENFORCEABILITY OF CONTRACT Stan and James did enter into a contract for this transaction. Both parties agreed to the terms of the contract, which included consideration from both parties; Stan providing payment for a service James was to render. Although it is unclear from the information given whether the contract was bilateral or unilateral, this ambiguity means it is presumed to be bilateral (Cheeseman, 2010). Therefore the contract as written is a valid contract (Cheeseman, 2010). However, there was apparently no express time of performance within the contract. A court could decide to apply an implied term to this contract, but because the time involved (three months) may be considered reasonable, and because it could be argued that the service involved was a personal one, it could also refuse to do so (Cheeseman, 2010). Given these factors, it is difficult to determine if the contract is in fact enforceable. POSSIBLE REMEDIES If Stan wanted to pursue this matter, there are several options available to him. If he wanted to take the case directly to court, he would have to file in the State of Virginia, as both his home and James’s business are located in that state. The......
