USE PARAGRAPH (1.1) TO ANSWER QUESTIONS 1 – 6:
1.1 Big Time Toymaker (BTT) develops, manufactures, and distributes board games and other toys to the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Chou is the inventor of a new strategy game he named Strat. BTT was interested in distributing Strat and entered into an agreement with Chou whereby BTT paid him $25,000 in exchange for exclusive negotiation rights for a 90-day period. The exclusive negotiation agreement stipulated that no distribution contract existed unless it was in writing. Just three days before the expiration of the 90-day period, the parties reached an oral distribution agreement at a meeting. Chou offered to draft the contract that would memorialize their agreement. Before Chou drafted the agreement, a BTT manager sent Chou an e-mail with the subject line “Strat Deal” that repeated the key terms of the distribution agreement including price, time frames, and obligations of both parties. Although the e-mail never used the word contract, it stated that all of the terms had been agreed upon. Chou believed that this e-mail was meant to replace the earlier notion that he should draft a contract, and one month passed. BTT then sent Chou a fax requesting that he send a draft for a distribution agreement contract. Despite the fact that Chou did so immediately after receiving the BTT fax, several more months passed without response from BTT. BTT had a change in management and informed Chou they were not interested in distributing Strat.

Theory to Practice

...Theory to Practice LAW/421 October 13, 2012 Ramon E. Ortiz-Velez Theory to Practice A contract is, “a promise or a set of promises enforceable by law,” (Melvin, 2011, p. 126). An agreement may result in a binding contract whether it is an oral or written agreement between parties (Melvin, 2011, p. 126). Big Time Toymaker (BTT), a toy company, was interested in a new strategy game invented by Chou. BTT entered into an agreement with Chou for exclusive rights to his inventory for a 90-day period at the cost of $25,000 (Melvin, 2011, p. 155). Contract BTT and Chou made an exclusive negotiation agreement for a 90-day period. This agreement had stipulations that a contract had to be in writing within this period. Before the expiration of this period, the parties reached an oral agreement in a meeting followed by an e-mail from BTT to Chou repeating their oral agreement on paper. This electronic document reiterated the key terms of what was agreed upon in the meeting between the parties (Melvin, 2011, p. 155). With areas agreed upon, the parties should be considered under contract. Positive and Negative Facts of Agreement There are several areas in this simulation that show positive and negative facts for Chou in terms of the intent of contract. The facts that weigh in favor of Chou: * meeting that was concluded with an oral agreement * follow-up e-mail from BTT with the key terms that were agreed upon * fax requesting a draft for the contract ...

Philosophical Theories and Practices

...Philosophical Theories and Practices Katrina D. Braggs Argosy University Abstract In this exercise, the writer was asked to explore the philosophical theories and practices of four of her colleagues. She will select and define Realism and Perennialism and explain how each teacher demonstrates their beliefs in these theories and how they apply them in their teaching. Her purpose will be to show how these modern day educators skillfully use the historical teachings and methods to instill a progressive education in their students. She will discuss two colleagues per theory and offer a comparison and differentiation in their methods. Keywords: realism, Perennialism Philosophical Theories and Practices The writer selected colleagues one and two based upon the theory of Realism in education. According to Pulliam and Van Patten, realists believe division between objects and form does not exist and humans know reality through examination of objects and through reason. Colleague I is a fourth grade teacher whose classroom consists of a mixture of average and below average students from mostly low-income families. Due to these demographics, she finds it imperative to use experiences familiar to the students to effectively convey the subject matter at hand. She presents all objectives in a simple and concrete manner prior to instruction for learner attainment before moving on to that which is more complex and abstract. The materials are highly precise and there is no......

Theory in Practice

...Theory in Practice This is a case of a 34-year old woman called June who is suffering from severe anorexia. She agrees to be placed on a feeding tube in order to save her life. On the evening before the tube is placed, June becomes disoriented and physical and totally refuses to have the feeding tube placed. The ethical dilemma sets in when the parents insist that the tube must be inserted despite her refusal, while the ex-husband wishes to uphold June’s final decision which most certainly will lead to her demise. The hospital administrators seek legal counsel in order to save the situation. This case though a sad one, presents with it several repercussions. This paper will explain the various implications that June’s case presents in the contemporary world and the various paths used to derive the elusive “right” decisions on the way forward. The patients’ bill of rights is a document that was developed by the American Hospital Association in order to improve the relationship between the patient, the medical staff and employees in the provision of health care. It enumerates several rights that a patient is entitled to before, during and after getting treatment. While this document is not law; it is very important in ensuring that all activities towards a patient’s health are carried out with consideration for their values and dignity (Maryland Hospital, 2011). The patient’s bill of right gives June several privileges as a patient concerning her treatment. First, she...

The Theory and Practice of Corporate Finance:

...Journal of Financial Economics 61 (2001) 000-000 The theory and practice of corporate finance: Evidence from the field John R. Grahama, Campbell R. Harveya,b,* aFuqua School of Business, Duke University, Durham, NC 27708, USA bNational Bureau of Economic Research, Cambridge, MA 02912, USA (Received 2 August 1999; final version received 10 December 1999) Abstract We survey 392 CFOs about the cost of capital, capital budgeting, and capital structure. Large firms rely heavily on present value techniques and the capital asset pricing model, while small firms are relatively likely to use the payback criterion. A surprising number of firms use firm risk rather than project risk in evaluating new investments. Firms are concerned about financial flexibility and credit ratings when issuing debt, and earnings per share dilution and recent stock price appreciation when issuing equity. We find some support for the pecking-order and trade-off capital structure hypotheses but little evidence that executives are concerned about asset substitution, asymmetric information, transactions costs, free cash flows, or personal taxes.

...Applying Theory to Practice Over the past decade, youth, and individuals under the age of 18 antisocial Mary Jo Buttafuoco had no idea that on answer and violence behavior has become a grave global concern and a top political policy issue being sensationalized by media coverage of rare but devastatingly murder crimes being committed by young individuals at school, homes and other social places. The increase of media reports of notorious murder by young people may skew the public perception of its actual prevalence. In our case study, we look at Mary Jo Buttafuoco who is murdered by a teenage girl at her home on Adam Road West Long Island, N.Y., on May 19, 1992. Moral Development Theory explanations of delinquency in which propositions identify certain concepts and describe and how they are related to delinquent behavior, this theoretically predicts relationships that may be tested through research. For instance, one simple proposition of differential association theory is that attitudes favoring delinquency may be learned in the context of inmate personal groups, in our case, the girl suggests to Mary Jo that they should have a talk about her husband, where she notices a car with a young man of which the girl claims to be her boyfriend. Mary Jo becomes upset and orders the girl to leave. The girl shoots her in the head without a second thought (Regoli, Hewitt, & DeLisi, 2014).

Leadership: Theory and Practice

...Norwegian School of Leadership and Theology Life Essay Course Name: VEL1010E Value-based Leadership in Organizations Name of Student: Prakash Lamichhane Title of Essay: Leadership Theory and Practice Number of Words: 1728 Date:26/09/14 Leadership is seen in every organizational structure. There is no universal definition of leadership. Many have defined the term in various ways. Leadership in simple terms means leading people towards goal but it is a understanding in a nutshell. What is leadership? Leadership is not merely having a vision (Maxwell,2001), also is a process and having influences in a group towards common goals (Northhouse,2013). Leadership is a influence upon relation within followers and leaders to seek changes which takes to common goal (Rost 1993). Weathersby (1999, p.5) suggests: “Leadership focuses on the creation of a common vision. It means motivating people to contribute to the vision and encouraging them to align their self-interest with that of the organization. It means persuading, not commanding”. Hence leadership can be a process, an influence which works in a group with vision to achieve relevant goals. Purpose of the essay: This paper is written to compare and contrast situational, transformational and servant leadership theory and practices and the area of their strength and weakness. There are several leadership models or approaches that have emerged with the passage of time. Transactional, situational, transformational and servant......

Theory of Practice

...Theory to Practice David Dwight Sandoval Contemporary Law/421 January 15, 2015 Mrs. Monica Arvelo/University of Phoenix Theory to Practice Below are questions 1 through 6 based on the scenario “Theory to Practice”: Question 1: At what point if ever, did the parties have a contract? Answer: An contract/agreement was started with Chou. BTT paid him $25,000 in exchange for negotiation rights for 90-days. Before the agreement was drafted by Chou, a BTT manager sent Chou an e-mail repeating the key terms of the distribution agreement including price, time frames, and obligations of both parties. Chou believed that the email was meant to replace the earlier notion (draft contract). This contract was in place when it was sent from BTT to Chou. Terms have been agreed upon …this is an enforceable contract between both of the parties. Question 2: What facts may weigh in favor of or against Chou in terms of the parties’ objective intent to contract? Answer: One fact that may weigh in favor of Chou, is the fact that there was a monetary agreement (BTT paid Chou $25,000/exchange for exclusive negotiation rights) between BTT and Chou. Since an email was used to send for the forms of communication between the parties, the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA) possibly could be used for legal implications in favor of Chou. One fact that may way against Chou, is the fact that a written agreement was not established before the 90-day period. The exclusive......

Thus teachers need to engage with resources that enable them to provide substantial attention to learners, learning, and human development. Knowledge of the domain of educational psychology is a central resource to the teaching enterprise and to the preparation of teachers.

The Development of Conservation in Theory and Practice

...Development of Conservation in Theory and Practice In considering the issue of wildlife conservation, a link to development rises quickly to the surface. After all, the animals seemingly considered the most prized by the collective popular consciousness, such as primates, occur predominantly in tropical areas of the world considered by most to be “underdeveloped.” According to the United Nations Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the rate of growth in developed countries, mostly those located in Europe and America, between 2005 and 2050 is expected to remain relatively minimal, while the population of the developing world is projected to substantially increase, from 5.3 billion to 7.8 billion, over the same period of time (United Nations Population Division 2005, vi). This includes a more drastic increase in the world’s 50 least developed country (mostly located in Africa and Asia), where the number of inhabitants is projected to swell from 0.8 billion to 1.7 billion over the same period. As such, in putting together a theory for development more broadly and conservation more specifically, it is crucial that the link between societal growth and natural resource and wildlife degradation be explored. In the following discussion, I hope to accomplish a few things. First, I will consider development theory broadly, looking at its evolution through time and some popular contemporary critiques. Though development theory (as it stands......
