The Mysterious Blogger
Despite a new computer security system, someone, who must be a company employee, is still posting company information on a private blog site. Most of the information is available elsewhere, but the leak concerns you. One of your other employees determines who is posting the information, at home and without company authorization. The other employee also hacks into the blogger’s home computer and discovers a material that is not allowed in the company computers.
The ethical issues on “The Mysterious Blogger” were whether the information obtained by Jamal Moore, the IT Tech was enough to discipline Aaron Webb, the blogging employee for violating the NDA policy. In one side, the company has an employee named Aaron Webb that is posting illegal blogs and violating some of the company policies. In the other hand, the company has another employee, Jamal Moore that is trying to help somehow to unsolved this mystery blogger. The only thing is that Jamal is also violating some of the company policies by letting me know about the situation.
After finishing the Ethic simulation, I notice that my decision was only made on thinking only what is right and also thinking that I did not want anybody to think that I chose anybody sides. In order for the company employees to learn the consequences of wrong actions, they need it to see what the outcome was. Not really paying attention to others. Now the outcome was more negative towards me that made the decision of firing both. As a manager I wanted to show the company the outcome of doing such thing. Even though I was glad at Jamaal for sending me that email and I was able to resolve the mystery. Otherwise I was not going to be able to ever find out who was actually sending this blogs. The simulation put me on a tight…...

...The Lord works in mysterious ways Anthony K. Nix IDSS 3100 November 6, 2012 Professor M James The Lord works in mysterious ways As I stood on the parade deck at the Sheridan Correctional Center in my 3 piece suit watching the inmates as they were lining up for afternoon chow, I whispered a prayer to myself and thanked my God for allowing me to be at this place in my life. Looking back on my life finding ending up in unusual, challenging, or exciting places is not new to me liked the night I found myself standing on the yellow footprints at the United States Marine Corp boot camp or when I found myself DJing at one of the hottest clubs in Japan being chauffeured in a jeep with a 45 on my hip.

But life’s experience have proved me wrong and has actually allowed me to have an impact on countless of people’s lives not only in the business and substance abuse field, but also spiritually.

Mysterious Blogger/Veilded Id

...Mysterious Blogger/Veiled ID Torey Flowers ETH/316 July 21, 2013 George Price The ethical issues that were presented in the Week Three Ethics Game Simulations were from The Mysterious Blogger and The Veiled ID. The ethical issues on “The Mysterious Blogger” were whether the information obtained by Jamal Moore, the IT Tech was enough to discipline Aaron Webb, the blogging employee for violating the NDA policy. As for “The Veiled ID”, the ethical issue had to do with how to develop and implement a security policy that provides for employees’ physical safety and accommodating special needs. The decision making process used to work on these ethical issues were based on the job descriptions given by the simulation. These decisions were made to protect the interest of shareholders and to prevent possible discrimination lawsuit against the company. Everyone involved from investors to company employees will be affected by any ethical decisions that arise out of this issue. It will also have an effect on the community, based on the decision that is made. Doing what is morally right and fair for the primary stakeholders and the community at large is what influenced my decision making in the simulation.

This summary will review what ethical issues were presented in the simulation, the decision making steps to ethically address the issues, the perspectives and lenses that were used to make the decision, influences in the decision making and concepts that relate to my work place. The first simulation “The Mysterious Roses” presented an issue that could have potentially been a violation of the sexual harassment policy.

Mysterious Places

...Mysterious Places Mamyan Ann Our environment is full of magical, mystical, and mysterious places that defy explanation.  There are treasures yet to be found, stone carvings we don't yet understand, and architectural feats to be explained.  Even as we live in what we consider to be the most technologically advanced society in all history, there are currently no air-tight explanations for most of the true wonders of our planet and beyond. The Great Pyramids of Egypt are the oldest structures on earth, contain compelling evidence of a civilization far more advanced than ours, and most likely existed thousands of years before the great flood.  With their original exteriors, they could probably be seen from the moon. The Mayan Civilization left behind incredible structures containing precise calculations and prophecies regarding the exact date of end of the world........Do you know that date? A site being studied on the side of Mt.  Ararat in Turkey may be the remains of the Biblical Noah's Ark. Scientists are currently quietly investigating a site off the western tip of Cuba that some say may be part of the lost city of Atlantis. We know less about the bottom of our own seas than we do about outer space.  There is a form on the surface of Mars that strongly appears to resemble an Egyptian face carving.  Is there a link? These are just a few of the many fascinating and mysterious places we intend to visit on these pages.  From......

...Alyssa Taelman Etude De Marché The influence of Northern European bloggers What influence do bloggers have on fashion? Introduction Nowadays, fashion blogs are all over the Internet, but what exactly is a fashion blog? I will start out by a definition of a fashion blog and a definition of a fashion blogger.

Mysterious Dark Matter

...scientists discovered that the universe (for the first a few hundred thousand years) was an expanding gas composed primarily of protons, electrons, photons, neutrinos, and the mysterious dark matter. In the present, scientists are still bombard about dark matter and what it really is. Although, scientists do not know what dark matter is, they are certain of what it is not. Dark matter is not in the form of stars and planets that we see and it is known to make up about 25% of the entire Universe. By using the effect of gravitational lensing, astronomers are able to determine that dark matter is not affected by most of the other baryonic matters. They also found that dark matter is the responsible substance that makes up most of the masses in the universe (found in galaxies, dwarf galaxies, and cluster galaxies). Dark matter is also the primary influence of gravitational pulls.   The mysterious and magnificent space that seems almost empty to the naked eye has fascinated mankind for as long as history can remember. The universe seems empty because it is made up of gas which is primarily composed of particles such as protons, electrons, photons, neutrinos, and dark matter. Dark matter is known to make up about 25% of the entire Universe but scientists have yet to understand completely about this mysterious subatomic particle. What is dark matter and where did it come from? What is really the natural function of dark matter? Where and how can dark matter be found? These......

Marketing to Bloggers

...Matthew Southwick Public Relations – 4 Individual Work – Week 10 I honestly had no idea how powerful blogs and bloggers could be. There are sites set up to direct you how to present your idea to a blogger, how it will be best received, and how many potential readers you might be able to have in your audience. Amazing! You’d better be sure to get it right the first time though because most of the reviews from bloggers themselves stated that it’s a one and done game. You only get to make that first impression the first time. Get it right and do your homework. First thing to do is read the blog. Seems simple right? Well it goes right over the heads of hundreds of PR professionals trying to get their message out. Sending PR campaigns regarding dolphins to a blogger that blogs about ONLY dogs. Hmmmmm….. How about a campaign about the benefits of using mosquito repellent to a beautician who blogs about make- up and hair styles? Way out of the loop! So when making your attempt to reach out to a potential blogger, make sure you at least know what the blog relates to and that your campaign fits their audience. Otherwise you are simply white noise and no one wants to listen to white noise. When determining the blog that fits your campaign it doesn’t have to be an identical fit. For example, if you are working on a campaign for shampoo you might be able to reach out to hair stylists, make-up artists, fashion critics, women’s issues/hot topics, mommy topics, etc. Your audience......

...mediated spaces where bloggers out together their outfits and share their shopping-related events. Fashion blogging has also been a revolutionary method for communicating and advertising through online media. Sprouting from the collective whole of blogs, called the blogosphere, fashion blogging is a whole new world of personal journals infused with the fast-paced line of design in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup and other wearable paraphernalia. The fashion industry has been finding ways to connect through their rising audience in the modern society, and via blogging, it has secured a throne of perpetual popularity, fame and success. Through this, fashion blogging is born. Two years ago, two million blogs represent the growing and fast-rising modernity of fashion; and now, fashion blogging has been crowned the most popular form of blogging. The persona of fashion blogging itself is innovation, making use of creativity in a conventional way, following the standard of wearability of certain articles of clothing. All in one, it could express the personality of the blogger, as well as openly communicate with the audiences of the blog, while effectively advertising the pieces of fashion the blogger has been showing. B. Literature Review Fashion bloggers share their knowledge pertaining to the fashion industry, specifically in terms of new style and trends, which they share through their own blogs based on their own experience (Bunina 2013). This is how bloggers share......

A Blogger in Their Midst

... * This could be new opportunity to for Will to promote Glove Girl because she can be used as a spokesperson of the company as she has an excellent public image. * The marketing department can always look for newer modes of marketing like SMS, e-mails etc. and should try to be ahead of their competition.  * Organizations need to adopt social media policies to prevent proprietary information from being leaked to the public. Personal Opinion for Glove Girl Bloggers’ opinion can constitute an extremely useful tool for a company’s product or service. The reason for this is that people feel bloggers have no subsequent intention in recommending something. In other words, they do not have the feeling that the blogger is trying to sell them something but that they are otherwise giving their opinion from their own knowledge or experience with the product or service. In the article “A Blogger in Their Midst”, Lancaster-Webb Medical Supply is living, for the first time, the experience of having a blogger (Glove Girl) writing about an old product, from the inside of the company (as an employee, but also as an user). The CEO of the firm is astonished to learn that there had been a huge demand of this product since she started talking it up on her blog. After studying the case, I consider Will Somerset would have different things to do with Glove Girl: fire her; hire her to post good opinion articles in her blog about the company and their products; not do anything with her...

The Mysterious Kingdom

...that almost touches me. I hopelessly closed my eyes but the pain I imagined did not happen. I felt someone pushed me and I fell into the lake. The water was cold and freezing. I tried to swim but I could not even see anything as there was darkness all around. My vision was blurry until I finally saw some light above. I used all my strength and swam towards the light, until I was finally out of the lake. I started gasping for air. I never thought that the air fillings into my lungs will be such a good feeling. I looked around; there were my friends’ worried looking face. I was back. I looked at the key in my hand and I finally know that, maybe it was not a dream after all. I looked at the sun above me and said goodbye silently to the mysterious boy and that place I would never go to again. I never know, maybe it’s not the end of everything. It’s just the beginning of it…...

The Mysterious Construction of the Giza Pyramids

... Stefani Delap Bruce Beard Hum:111 01/31/16 The Mysterious Construction of The Pyramids Of Giza The Mysterious Construction of The Pyramids Of Giza The Pyramids of Giza are a great tourist attraction and an even more perplexing ideology of architectural construction. How were these great monuments built? In regarding how the pyramids were constructed, there have been many theories proposed but none have adequate evidence. According to the French engineer Jean Pierre Houdin: The Giza pyramids were constructed in three major stages. In the first stage the first portion of the pyramid building process, Houdin, relies on the conservative Historian standby, “the straight ramp”, to explain the mechanism of how the stone blocks were moved and placed into the monument. The process in which Jean proposes, the straight ramp was slowly constructed up which the ancient laborers dragged over a million and a half blocks that went into the Pyramids reaching the third level of the King Chamber. In an extension to the rising levels the beginning infrastructure of an internal spiral was created twisting around just inside the outer edge of the core masonry. The second stage of construction, Houdin, tries to explain that the purpose for the unique design of the Grand Gallery was solely for aiding in the moving and raising the huge granite blocks that were placed above the King’s chamber...

...mechanism for their product, and this creates a big opportunity for intermediaries to match the blogs with the right company (Stelzner 2012). There is even a growing opportunity for paid sponsor posts which is where companies will pay for a blogger to post something (Stelzner, 2012). The opportunity for significant expansion exist, as most blogging sites do not have as strong a presence in overseas markets as they do in the US market. Finally, more corporations are willing to pay for the most sophisticated blogging interface and also bring on permanent staff to better utilize this technology. Overall, these three industries provide the biggest opportunity to consumers, individuals, and businesses as it delivers the ability to receive and transmit a message through a platform that uses collaboration in the form of sight and sound and leverages our current technologies. Threats: Opportunities bring about threats and technology has provided many industries opportunities but it has also brought many industries to their knees. The people collaborating industry is no different as there are several threats related to the industry. The first threat is misleading communication whether that is in the form of an incorrect entry, incompetent blogger, and individual opinion with no factual data. These industries rely on subject matter experts, user generated content, which can be misleading resulting in the need for damage control for both the company and the individual. Global......
