Tax policy effects on company startup and/or economic growth, and post one paragraph on the relationship between economic concepts covered in Chapter two

Q: Tax policy effects on company startup and/or economic growth, and post one paragraph on the relationship between economic concepts covered in Chapter two: Externalities and Chapter three: taxation, and how that might relate to ethics and principled leadership. In particular are the economic actions companies might take in response to public policy changes such as the cost of regulations and changes in the tax burden consistent or inconsistent with principled corporate leadership? If our company manufactures the vehicles, the smoke of the vehicles pollutes the air. This polluted air affects the health of humans. It is the negative externality, business owners earn the profit if the business remain successful then it will more pollute the environment. Vehicle owners have only concern with profit they do not care about any of the thing. It is not only the environment issue, it is the global issue, and therefore governments have to impose high taxes on such kind of factories that manufacture this kind of vehicles. For these kinds of factories government have to make some of the different rules and regulations, and have to impose high taxes. Beside this, companies also have to take ethical decisions and manufacture such kind of vehicles that do not produce smoke. In this way environment will remain safe. High taxation on such kind of industries will help to grow economy of countries. For all these kinds of industries government have to introduce different polices, and make it essential for these industries to follow them. Reference: Autoalliance.org. (2015).

The contents of YouTube, blog spots, millions of tweets is shaping central role in political debates of Arab spring.  The protest against national borders stories are often preceded in social media.  The awareness about democracy and freedom in Middle East and North Africa is raised through social media.  This recognized political upraising expectations. In arguing social media and the Arab spring, that gives benefits for democratic uprisings across the Arab world.  The Arab spring movement placed democratic culmination that astonishing movement of birthplace. Tunisia who moves forwards and transforms into transition to democracy.  The process of democratic is enhances in Arab spring.  Organizing grassroots levels, creating civil society groups and developing political literature by digitally as well as printed form is major agenda of Arab spring movement. This recognized the evolvement of democratic process revolution in the Arab world. The political mobilization across the region is taken place by protesting the people in the country. (McLarney, 2015)  The interest of democracy is developed by using social media and communicating the success of political parties among the community. With the identification of extensive social networks, that creates democracy interest   and organized political action. In my opinion role of social media has immense importance in the getting greater freedom and process of democracy constitutions.

People are in position to offer their content in almost every field of business internationally. They produce their content and supply in different countries. Their content is being produced diverse fields of business such as manufacturing, retail and distribution. Supply of labor has also been possible. Countries with rich human capital are exporting their work force. China is an example of human capital-intensive country, which is exporting it work force to US and Canada. This is what we known “a level playing field”. Everybody in the world is in position to offer his/her content to the world with the use of information and communication technologies. Information and communication technologies have made it possible for individuals to connect with each other and offer their content. This is quiet challenging situation for individuals in US. Supply chain practices and “flattering” of the world Globalization has changed core economic conceptualization throughout the world.

A new feature selection model based on ID3 and bees algorithm for intrusion detection system

detection system Introduction The IDS (Intrusion Detection Systems) are the key components in computer networking environments. Recently, attentions are paid on these systems in order to maximize the accuracy and detection rate as well as minimizing individual type of attacks on virtual networks. It prevents the misuse of the computer systems as well as anomaly detection where it detects out of normal behaviors of the computer systems trying to access the information illegally. The emergence in development of security systems is considered as part of life systems is done through the adoption of the Generic Algorithm Models i.e. IDS with K-Means clustered Algorithms as well as Genetic Algorithm. Proposal For the proposed methodologies, there is combined approach basing on ID3 Algorithm as well as Bees Algorithm (BA) would be utilized for making selection optimal subsets. The BA would be used as a classifier with the ID3 Algorithms for that purpose. It would be applied on the dataset of KDD Cup 99. Generic Algorithms would support the systems in implementing security consoles that will employ robust technologies based on the learning of the machines. This system is verified and validated through Data Mining Cup 1999 (KDD Cup 99) as well as from Knowledge Discovery. This approach will outperform the existing methodologies. Conclusion The results from the study provide the basis that the collection or combination of the two techniques i.e. ID3-BA, would be beneficial and superior in terms of classification of AR and DR. The field of cyber and computer security programs and intrusion systems in detection has been imminent in the recent days as it could take detect and make timely effective measures when an unauthorized and illegal access has been done.

Document Analysis of African American Petition for freedom, 1777

African American Petition for freedom, 1777 Prince hall and seven other black men submitted a petition to the House of Representatives and Massachusetts Revolutionary Council on January 13, 1777. This petition was submitted for freedom to slaves. The petition for freedom was also do many times before. There was strong control of white on black. Black was bound to serve white in any situation or condition. On the other hand, white people had complete authority and right to treat good or bad with slaves (black). The founders of the petition were united in their inequality and protest of against their slavery. For instance, Thomas Jefferson’s used power and forceful condemnation of the wrong doing of slavery in his original documents/draft of the Declaration of Independence. This petition was submitted after the inspiration of slaves from the principles of liberty and equality. White use to treat salves brutally. Moreover, slaves or black do not had any rights against white (Miller, 2012). On the other hand, the king condoning the slave trade by violating its most sacred rights and waged cruel war against human nature. The petition depicts that slaves were specifically striking their embrace of natural rights as foundation of their liberty. Slaves were just demanding natural rights being a human. This includes the self-government, conscience and protection. Moreover, slavery denies or stifles all of these rights. These are the arguments made in the petition. Slaves had their own religion. The petition shows that they were forced to Christianity. The argument that salves cannot lead fully Christian lives. Moreover, they demand freedom for their children so that they condemned to an unnatural life of the slavery plead by them. The end result of these petition and some other petitions filed before failed. However, after the Revolution, Supreme Court of Massachusetts concluded …

Movement of water from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration is called Diffusion.Diffusion considers passive transport because no energy requires or needs to “go with the flow.” Therefore, diffusion considers passive transport.The plan cell does not burst in a hypotonic solution and becomes more turgid because due to the strength of the cell wall. Animal cells are not stronger as compare to plan therefore, these will swell and burst or lyse.Sea water is salty. Our body normally gets rid of the excessive salts from body by having kidneys produce urine. The sea water has not capacity or characteristic of dilute the salt in our body and for the kidneys to work properly. In case we drink sea water then we have to urine more than water we drink to get rid from salt in body.This depends on the species of the fish. Some of the fish species have ability to live both in saltwater and freshwater. These are called euryhaline fish. On the other hand, it’s also depends on the salinity tolerance of the fish and their ability to handle the salt. Fish can die if it fails to handle salt.If the fish is from the specie of Euryhaline then it can easily survive in the fresh water aquarium. Moreover, it will difficult for the saltwater fish to live in freshwater because of low salt.

new economic and political-economic notions

Summary In this article, according to author industrial revolution not only gave birth to new production techniques and increased production volume, but it also gave birth to new economic and political-economic notions. These notions and percepts provided foundation for new political-economic-social structures, which influenced evolution of human civilization. The most unique and esteemed, of these economic and political-economic notions, were Marxism and Capitalism. Capitalism strictly believed in a laissez faire economy, in which government did not interfere. As per pure capitalism theory, system is kept in check by demand and supply forces and government intervention, as per this theory, only creates challenges for the system The hidden guides the system to perfection and self-rectification is its unique characteristic. In this article, communism, on the other hand, was completely a command economy. As per this theory, all efforts should be channelized to attain common socio-political objectives. Private property is discouraged and free market is the new devil, which dwells on exploitation. However, because of grave economic challenges, such Great Depression in Capitalist economies and self-destructive bureaucratic economic structure in communist economies, became reason for massive alteration in capitalism system and implosion of communist economic structure. According to author, after the implosion of Soviet Union, communist system became obsolete and concept of liberal economy, started to mature and prevail. Economies around the world, started to open up or liberalize, as economic and trade opportunities augmented, because of the end of Cold war.

Introduction to Tax Inversion by US Companies

Tax inversion is the process of moving a business from one country to another for lowering taxes. This is due to the high corporate income tax as well as state taxes. Considering that corporate income tax in the United States ranges from 34% to 39%, companies could lose nearly half of their profit. Unfortunately, this can result in a lower growth rate and less return to shareholders. Slide 3: Companies Who Evaded Taxes The companies that want to lower their taxes and increase their profit through tax inversion are in accordance with U.S laws. Examples of companies that use this strategy to reduce tax liabilities are Walgreens and Apple. Companies achieve corporate inversion by dissolving their United States corporate status and reincorporate into other countries where tax rates are lower than in the United States. Companies then become a subsidiary of the newly established companies where the tax is lower. There was number of companies who took tax inversions, which namely includes AbbVie and Pfizer. Therefore, US Treasury has to take certain steps in limiting the benefits of the tax inversions where companies have struck their transactions of inversion deals. The limit was imposed on different structures, which are helpful for the companies in earning profits without paying the taxes. In such measures, the companies would have only 20-40% shares of newly formed businesses in home or at abroad. Most of Americans are of the view that the large firms should pay higher taxes and corporate loophole must be closed for them. Slide 4: Apple Case Study Like the case of Apple Inc., which generates huge profits more in the foreign countries as compared to domestic income generation, the company earns huge unrepatriated foreign income from selling its Apple IPhone. The tax inversion is easily handled by the company because …

Pike River Coal Mine Tragedy

Q.1- Pike River represented a number of project management failures.  Discuss what they were and how could the management of this project have been improved? Introduction In the race of development, human have achieved countless successes and in these achievements, the role of engineers cannot be ignored. Engineers have built new cities on the deserted or wet land where life was even not present. Engineers built huge bridges such as Akashi Kaikyo Bridge situated in Japan about 2 kilometre bridge, Xihoumen Bridge situated in China with a span of 1659 meters. This type of mega brides brought great development to human by connecting them with other areas (CNN, 2015). Consequently, transport like Aeroplane, or rail car or rapid transit trains has amazingly improved the mod of transpiration and opened new ways of development for the human. Subsequently, hue buildings, Machinery and advanced technology i.e. in all sectors of life engineers contributed from the front foot. In this development engineers play their role as architect engineer, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, aeronautical engineer, chemical engineers, software and hardware engineer, civil engineer, environmental engineer and engineers have been serving in many other fields. However, on the other hand, there is a dark side or engineering practices. Engineering is a complicated task therefore; a minor mistake or negligence in engineers’ tasks could bring massive destruction. Some of the most famous engineering failures disasters in the history are including the Francis Dam flooding in 1928 that killed around 600 people, Hindenburg Disaster 1937 killed 36 people, Chernobyl Nuclear Plant disaster happened in 1986 and till now it has taken thousands of lives and still its affects are uncontrollable. All of the aforementioned disasters were happen because of malfunction in project management by the engineers (Manion & Evan, 2002).

The power lines pole

If you were Mr. Yarrow, what additional information would you like beyond that supplied in the case and how would it affect your final decision? Selection process of suppliers is most important. It should be based on available information. Suppliers should be selected on basis of information provided by them. They should be asked for additional information in case of any difficulty in selection. First thing for selection is analysis of quality. Quality of project is important in this case. Their quality should be analyzed for making further analysis. There are many ways to analyze quality of suppliers. Information that is required for selection is lead-time. Every project has lead-time. Bids should be analyzed as per lead-time. Suppliers should be selected as per the capacity to deliver material on time. If I were Mr. Yarrow, I would have selected bidders by evaluating their technical compatibility. They should be selected by analyzing their technical solution. They should be analyzed on technical structure, financial structure and cost. Project should be analyzed along with bidders to reach final selection. Bidders should be given scores and after that, they should be selected. Bidding price alone is not sufficient to select or reject bidders. In this case, Yarrow used improper information for selecting bidders. Relationship between financial and technical requirement is also important for selecting bidders. I would have focused on this relationship for making decision. After passing bidders, I will focus on technical criteria for their selection. Each company has its own criteria for evaluating and scoring on technical compatibility. Yarrow only used limited information, rejected four bidders, and selected four bidders. I would like to use above information for selecting them. To make selection of bidders transparent, it is necessary to focus on above information. In this case, due to incomplete information Yarrow …

Constructing WBS

Compare and contrast the three formats of constructing a WBS: indented outline, org chart, and free format? The detailed planning tool finally has Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) for further project formulation. In the way, software value is more explicit than ever because it is sensitive step. The hierarchy of a project is important and WBS can create detailed discourse about steps that can be face by project managers in future. The paradigm to visualize success of project is more glaring through optimum use of this tool (Kloppenborg, 2014). Such working is not bound with formats but three common formats are; Organization chartsIndented outlinefree format Organization charts The first format displays diagram of hierarchy and graphical view of data. The overview of project is more essential outcome while implementing it. From least level to advance levels of organization, all processes are come into being through this approach. Such approach also has limits because this aspect of WBS is not suitable for displaying large corporation’s data in any way (Portny, 2015). Indented outline The next format is named as indented-outline format in which project manager has detailed heads under one major head to work. The one major component of project may have detailed components because it has to reshapes project according to need. In such way, detailed information can be break down and it leaves no limitation in any aspect. This format is applicable at project either it has detailed information to show and even at less information (Kloppenborg, 2014). Free Format Third approach is about free format and this approach is complex than others. Facilitators is free to draw information seems relevant in any manner. Similarly, about each minor component is directly attached with one major component (Kloppenborg, 2014). Reference: Kloppenborg, T. (2014). Contemporary Project Management. Cengage Learning.

When Will the Fed Raise Rates?

Summary The relationship between the cost of borrowing and its overall effect on the economy by changing the inflation in the economy is a significant phenomenon. The changing interest rate levels have two consequences, firstly the growth of economy and secondly the inflation level in the economy. Whenever the Fed try to change the level of interest rate, it is a challenge and a moment of truth for the economy if it is healthy enough to take on such a change or not. The federal reserves almost put an interest rate of close to zero in order to support the growth of the economy. Though, it is a great policy for the borrowers as they can take advantage of it but this policy must be changed. The level of interest rate with such a low rate can be drawback for the economy when it comes to the international investments. Usually when the Fed tends to change the interest rate to a higher level it is a way of attracting the investors from around the world. At this point the Fed must understand if the economy is healthy enough to take the effect of such a significant change. Opinion According to my opinion, though, by increasing the interest rate level the cost of borrowing would increase which is a beneficial thing for the investors while the borrowers would have to pay more in case of fulfill their needs like buying car or a house etc. Increasing the interest rates to a certain normal level would also ensure that the inflation in the country would slow down. The interest rate increment has its own consequences as it might affect the markets in opposite direction as expected before. The markets react in too much excitement and hence they can lead to slowing down …

Comments on Blogs

Character Assassin It is true that all social media have their own distinct features and utilities and based on these utilities and unique characteristic, people chose or prefer their social media instrument to dissimilate and gather information. Twitter in this regard is a unique social media instrument, of gathering and dissimilating information or data. It allows only 140 characters and in those 140 characters, a person or company has to dissimilate information or message. Over the years, twitter has evolved or changed. This evolution or change is the result of corporate compulsions and competition. Facebook, which is another social media application or platform, is putting pressure on its rivals, such as twitter, to enforce changes.

Genealogy and Family Tree

Genealogy and family legends Prior to the concept of nation state, regions, around the world, were divided on tribal basis. A tribe used to occupy certain part of the land, where it exercised its social-religious notions, norms and traditions. During that time, individual’s existence and relevance depended merely on his/her tribe. In the nutshell, tribal affiliation and support was needed to survive. In addition, some bloodlines were considered sacred and special, which gave more value to ancestral history and genealogy. Therefore, when we analyze/study ancient documents and scriptures, such as Old and New Testament, we find that authors, of these documents or scriptures, have allocated considerable time and work to genealogy and family trees, of Israeli Prophets, such as Abraham (PBUH) and Moses (PBUH). In Mesopotamian region, family history mostly preserved through stories and legends, of forbearers. As I also belong to that region, such practices are still practiced by my family. I grew up listening to the stories, of my ancestors, who served in Mongol, Mughal and British armies. My great grandfather, who was soldier in the British army, fought against Germans, in Rangoon, where he was injured. Our grandmother narrated to us stories, pertaining to our particular ancestor, who was governor, eastern Mesopotamian region. According to another legend, my maternal great grandfather, who belonged to the Mountains of Himalaya, was married seven times and one his wife was not human but a witch, which I strongly doubt. In our family ancestral history is preserved through legends and stories. We once had a family tree, but it was lost; however, we know, considerably, about our ancestors, their occupation, their notions and perspectives, through legends and stories.
