Case Backgroud: This case is regarding the network outage in CareGroup IT which lasted for about 3 days and how the CareGroup IT was able to resolve this by working in conjunction with Cisco Networking team. As the company did not design a contingency plan for such an outage, its employees had to switch back to paper based system, an outdated backup plan designed for Y2K. John Halamka, CIO of the Caregroup also talks towards the end of the case regarding the lessons learned from this critical issue which in fact, did not have any adverse effect but rather brought down CareGroup day-to-day operations. Case Analysis: Caregroup Network was based on Spanning Tree Protocol which establishes a single shortest route between the hosts by forcing the redundant paths into a standby or blocked state. If one network segment in the STP becomes unreachable, the spanning tree algorithm reconfigures the spanning tree topology and reestablishes the link by activating the standby path.
PCA offered no public statements about its product recall until January 13, 2009, months after salmonellosis cases had been found to be a result of their company’s practices. Their unprofessional practices continued to lead to a large-scale organizational communication failure as the public rose to confusion by not having any information. Hallman and Cuite (2010) stated, “Confusion can arise when consumers have too little information about contaminated products”. They explained that if consumers “cannot successfully distinguish affected from unaffected products, they are likely to either under-react by assuming that they do not own any of the recalled products or over-react by discarding or avoiding the purchase of anything that resembles it”. PCA’s lacks of adequate responsibility for their wrong doings lead to ethical dilemmas and communication failure.
This experiment translated to a policing philosophy that by taking care of the small things, the broken windows, the petty crimes, an area, a neighborhood, or an entire city would be seen as something not subject to damage. Returning now to Friar Occam’s Razor, does it not make at least as much sense that broken windows policing can be credited with the dramatic decrease in crime in the 1990s as the increase in abortions beginning 20 years before was the
I do not feel the Toy Company has violated any employee rights because of the four days on four days off schedule that has been implemented. The employee cannot prove we made the work environment so intolerable to his or her religious beliefs. In the case of Duffy v. Paper Magic Group, the plaintiff states she was constructively discharged based on a pattern of discrimination (Duffy, 2008). She claims she was passed over for promotion for a younger employee and that superiors made comments regarding her age. Evidence showed that she had several promotions while being employed and that her job performance were averages.

The actions developed to improve VAP seemed to have been a major factor in reducing VAP during FY09. The spikes in September and February VAP do not correlate with the nursing care hours. The same amount of nursing care hours are consistent through the rest of the year and there are no cases of

Joshua Smith 10/17/12 ACS 108 Anti-Texing In the article “Anti-texting law has yet to snag many violators,” Brian Anderson argues that new laws against distracting driving have done little to stop texters. Anyone who has gotten away with breaking the new law aimed at outlawing texting while driving is far from alone. Nearly two months have passed since the Alabama law has taken effect, the Anniston, Jacksonville and Oxford Police Departments and the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office all said they’ve issued no citations for the offense. What could be the reason why the new anti-texting law has yet to snag many violators? Perhaps drivers notice the marked police car before the officer has a chance to determine the driver is texting.
With the foundation only opened to the public Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9:30 to 4:30 with admission granted through reservation only and with a restricted amount of visitors allowed in the neighborhood revenue was not booming. The Barnes’ leadership cited a depleted endowment and litigious relations with its neighbors in arguing that the moves were necessary to the foundation’s survival. In 1999 a forensic audit done by Deloitte Touche of the Barnes Foundation was released and it proved that the foundation was nearing bankruptcy and surviving primarily on charitable
