Tooters Restaurant used an alternative dispute resolution program. Employees of Tooters had to sign an “agreement to arbitrate employment-related disputes” to be eligible for raises, transfers, and promotions. Under the agreement, both Tooters and the employee agreed to resolve all disputes arising out of employment, including “any claim of discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, or wrongful discharge, whether arising under federal or state law,” through arbitration.
In a separate policy document not shared with employees until after they had signed the agreement, Tooters set forth the rules and procedures of its arbitration program:
The employee had to provide notice of the specifics of the claim, but Tooters did not need to file any type of response to these specifics or notify the employee of what kinds of defenses the company planned to raise.
Only the employee had to provide a list of all facts or witnesses and a brief summary of the facts known to each.
While the employee and Tooters could each choose an arbitrator from a list, and the two arbitrators chosen would then select a third to create the arbitration panel that would hear the dispute, Tooters alone selected the arbitrators that were put on the list.
Only Tooters had the right to widen the scope of arbitration to include award any matter, whereas the employee was limited to the matters raised in his or her notice.
Only Tooters had the right to record the arbitration.
Only Tooters could cancel the agreement to arbitrate or change the arbitration rules.
Dawn had worked as a bartender at the Tooters restaurant for about five years before Tooters adopted its arbitration policy. Dawn was given a copy of the agreement to arbitrate to review for five days and then sign. Approximately two years later, a Tooters official grabbed and slapped her buttocks. After appealing to her manager for help and being told to “let it go,” she quit her job. When she threatened to file a lawsuit for sexual harassment, Tooters filed an action in federal district court to compel arbitration of Dawn’s claims.
Case of Global Ethics vs. Global Economy
This is a case that will be tried in the court of Public Opinion.
Kilo Shoe Company, a United States corporation, buys clothing assembled by Crystal, LTD., a foreign company that employs children under 12 years of age. These children work nine hour days and for low pay. Crystal’s nation does not enforce its child labor laws limiting workdays to seven hours for children under 12. Many times the children’s income is needed by the family for basic necessities. Crystal and Kilo are aware of this.
Human International Politics (HIP), an international political activist organization, discovered Kilo’s connection to Crystal, LTD. HIP plans to reveal this information to the press and on social media. Kilo hears about this proposed action by HIP. Before HIP can act, Kilo terminates its relationship with Crystal. Kilo then publicizes this action in its advertising. The company’s sales and profits increase, apparently as a direct result.

The Case of the Customer Who Died to Soon
On October 26, a Wednesday Country Life Insurance agent went to the house of Martha and Gary Andersen. He persuaded the Andersens to buy a life insurance policy and accepted a check for $1,600. On his way out the door, he gave the Andersens a “conditional receipt for medical policy,” dated that day. The form stated that the Andersens would have a valid life insurance policy with Wednesday Country Life, effective October 26, but only when all conditions were met. The most important of these conditions was that the Wednesday Country Life home office accept the Andersens as medical risks after the company scheduled a medical examination. The Andersens were pleased with the new policy and glad that it was effective that same day.
Gary died in a car accident three weeks later. Wednesday Country Life declined the Andersens as medical risks and refused to issue a policy. Martha Andersen sued. Wednesday Country Life pointed out that medical approval was a condition to being covered. In other words, the company argued that the policy would be effective as of October 26, but only if it later decided to make the policy effective. It had not made that decision as of the date of Gary’s death.
Plaintiff argued that the policy was a scam. The so called “conditional receipt for medical policy” is designed to trick customers and then steal their money. The company leads people to believe they are covered as of the day they write the check. But they aren’t covered until much later, when the insurer gets around to deciding the applicant’s medical status.
The company gets the customer’s money right away and gives nothing in exchange. If the company, after taking its time, decides the applicant is not medically fit, it returns the money, having used it for weeks or even months to earn interest. If, on the other hand, the insurance company decides the applicant is a good bet, it then issues the policy effective for weeks or months in the past, when coverage is of no use. No one can die retroactively. The company is being paid for a period during which it had no risk.
Defendant, Wednesday Country Life, argued that it would be impracticable for Wednesday Country Life to issue life insurance policies without doing a medical check. That is the road to bankruptcy and would mean that no one could obtain this valuable coverage. They further argued that they do a medical inquiry as quickly as possible as it is in their interest to get the policy decided one way or the other.
The policy clearly stated that coverage was effective only when approved by the home office, after all inquiries were made. The Andersens knew that as well as the agent. If they were covered immediately, why would the company do a medical check?
Sepsis (also known as blood poisoning) is the immune system’s overreaction to an infection. Normally the human immune system fights infection but sometimes it attacks our body’s own organs and tissues. If not treated immediately, sepsis can result in organ failure and death. Yet with early diagnosis, it can be treated with antibiotics. Five people die each hour in the UK as a result of sepsis.
Blood plasma samples were collected, processed and frozen from subjects visiting the X Hospital Accident and Emergency Unit and who were diagnosed with sepsis. Age and gender-matched control subjects were recruited from the same Accident and Emergency Unit and blood plasma was also collected, processed and stored; these control subjects were tested for but were not diagnosed with sepsis. The sepsis and control samples have been analysed applying a quantitative proteomics method; a specific protein has received a more in-depth mass spectrometry analysis; and the sepsis and control samples have been analysed applying an untargeted metabolomics method to identify changes in metabolites.
This assessment will allow you to investigate the data acquired. The assessment is broken down in to three separate sections.
The assessment should be submitted as a short scientific report defining (a) the computational methods applied; (b) the data analysis results generated and (c) a discussion/conclusion section. The maximum word count is 800 words.
The data collected is presented in the file named ‘Proteomics data.xls’.
Serum samples were extracted and analysed for 15 subjects diagnosed with sepsis and 15 subjects not diagnosed with sepsis. Plasma was extracted in 50/50 methanol/water (v/v). Each sample was analysed applying a ultra-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method followed by raw data processing. Quality Control (QC) samples were also analysed as part of the study.
The processed LC-MS data is presented in the file named ‘Omics_Microbes_Metabolomics_dataset_Case_Study.csv’.
1. Most developmental scientists agree that nature and nurture interact to influence development. explain how sickle cell anemia being a genetic disorder illustrates the interaction of genes and context.

3. Suppose you were creating a program to support pregnant women and their families in delivering healthy babies. Identify factors that you might address at each level of Bronfenbrenner’s model (Chapter 1). Discuss your program and how it may help promote healthy infants.
4. Theo pushes into a crawling position onto all fours and rocks back and forth. Theo will soon crawl, about 2 months later than the other babies in the childcare center. Much smaller than his peers, Theo is new to the childcare center, recently adopted from an overcrowded orphanage in a developing country. At first tiny Theo didn’t eat much. The adults around him worried about his poor eating habits and lack of growth. Soon, however, Theo became comfortable in his new, affectionate and nurturing home and he began to grow quickly.
One of our focuses for this class is to develop our critical thinking skills. Critical thinking allows us to “read between the lines” and look beyond the obvious. We have read several essays and answered journal questions that require us to use our critical thinking skills. This next assignment will expand on those critical thinking skills.
For this essay, you will be analyzing a visual image that connects to the topic of your research essay. It could be a photograph, an infographic, a chart, diagram, etc.
In the essay, you will need to describe (summarize) the image to the readers. From there, you will want to analyze it. An analysis is an argument in which you study the parts of something to understand how it works, what it means, or why it might be significant.
Within your analysis, you will want to discuss how this image connects to your research paper, how it supports (or doesn’t support) your essay’s ideas, and the effectiveness of the visual in conveying its message.
For this piece, you should find at least two other sources that support your analysis of the image. These can be sources you’ve already used in the research paper, or they can be new sources. Basically, with these secondary sources, you’re showing how the visual supports (or doesn’t support) the ideas presented in the research essay. Please make sure the sources you choose are credible sources.
You will need to include an introduction that briefly introduces the topic of your research paper, but do not use your exact same introduction. Then, you will want to mention the visual image you chose. Make sure you tell readers where the image comes from, its title, and who created it.
Your introduction should include a strong thesis statement that lets the readers know what you are arguing. Your introduction should also set the stage for the readers and let them know what your essay will be about. You should also include a strong conclusion that ties everything up for the readers and brings them back to the beginning of the essay.
This essay is worth 50 points. You will be graded on grammar/mechanics, content, documentation, thesis statement, the conclusion, the works cited page, and all the other elements of writing. Avoid using first person pronouns. Remember: this is an analysis, not a review.
Write an essay explaining how nursing has evolved over time.
