SUBJECT: RECENT NFL PLAYER ARRESTS

DATE: TUESDAY, JANUARY 26, 2016

CURRENT NFL PLAYERS VIOLATING THE LAW MR. GOODELL, THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, HAS A SERIOUS PROBLEM TO DEAL WITH IN 2016. THE NUMBER OF ARRESTS IN 2015 STOOD AT AN ABSURD “38” (USA TODAY, 2015). THE ARRESTS INCLUDED WERE FROM ACTIVE NFL PLAYERS, ON CURRENT NFL TEAMS. THE OFFENSES COMMITTED WERE EXTREMELY SEVERE PROBLEMS. THESE INCLUDED: DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE, SEXUAL ASSAULT, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, ETC., THEY ARE OFFENSES THAT CANNOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY AND SHOULD BE SEEN WITH NECESSARY PUNISHMENT. THE MEMO I HAVE PROVIDED FOR YOU WILL INCLUDE THE NECESSARY STEPS AND ALSO SOME MINOR CHANGES THAT COULD HELP TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF PLAYER ARRESTS IN 2016 AND BEYOND.
REINVESTIGATING PLAYER FINES AND SUSPENSION BYLAWS
THE CURRENT PUNISHMENT FOR PLAYERS VIOLATING LEAGUE RULES IS JUST NOT WORKING RIGHT NOW. THE PROOF IS IN THE GROWING NUMBER OF OFFENSES OCCURRING EACH YEAR. FOR EXAMPLE, THE GREG HARDY CASE IN THE SUMMER OF 2014. GREG HARDY WAS INVOLVED IN A MAJOR DOMESTIC ABUSE SCANDAL AND THIS WAS NOT HIS FIRST OFFENSE. HE WAS SUSPENDED TEN GAMES. HOWEVER, THAT WAS THEN REDUCED TO FOUR GAMES. THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE. IT SHOWS OTHER PLAYERS THAT THESE CRIMES WILL BE TOLERATED IN YOUR LEAGUE WITH LITTLE TO NO PUNISHMENT. PUNISHING THE PLAYERS TO EXTREME LENGTHS IS NOT THE SOLUTION, IT IS WHAT YOU CAN OFFER THESE PLAYERS AFTER THEIR SUSPENSION; THAT WILL FIX THEM FOR THE FUTURE.
FUTURE STEPS TO FOLLOW TO DECREASE LAWSUITS AMONG PLAYERS THERE IS A LOT OF VIOLATIONS THAT COULD OCCUR IN THE NFL, HOWEVER, THE ONE I WANTED TO OFFER ASSISTANCE WITH IS YOUR BANNED SUBSTANCE POLICY. THE CURRENT SYSTEM STATES, AFTER THE FIRST OFFENSE YOU WILL BE SUSPENDED FOUR GAMES WITHOUT PAY. FOUR WEEKS WITHOUT PAY FOR A PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE IS…...

...1. What are some example of Disruptive products created by apple? How disruptive of a product is the iPhone and why? A disruptive technology or disruptive innovation is an innovation that helps create a new market and value network, and eventually goes on to disrupt an existing market and value network (over a few years or decades), displacing an earlier technology there.

Sudy Habits

...Chapter 1 Foreign Literature According to Pogue (2000), what is true about study habits was that more than thirty years ago still rings true today-students fail because they do not know how to study. The best advice he can give is to develop sound study skills. It is a common scene if some senior students fail to finish a passing requirement for a subject course. What is lacking is their ignorance of developing good study habits that are necessary for good academic performance. And to worsen their ignorance are their psychological conception of giving up so easily and the tempting distractions of the surrounding that lead them to a zero percent possibility of creating their own ideal habits. So, it has become a major trouble to senior students who are known to be suffocated with loads of works from school.    To elaborate more about sound study habits, Rothkopf (1982) referred to it as to whether students study at the same time each day, whether they shut off radio, television while reading and whether they paraphrase and write down what they have read during the practical instructions. Study habit also describes some external activities which serve to activate and facilitate the internal process of learning. Study habit is the daily routine of students with regards to their academic duties and responsibilities. Each student has his own study habits varying on his preferences with the place and time of studying, techniques in studying and more. It will depend upon the...

...CASE STUDY 2 I. THE ARALIN TEACHER Mrs. Boots De Vola was assigned to teach the first section in third year level. She assumed that she is an effective and efficient teacher in Araling Panlipunan because of that. There are many teachers qualified and much deserving to teach the star section. Now, the students are complaining of the expenses regarding projects, special projects and the way she behave in classroom. II. HISTORY AND BACKGROUND OF THE FACTS Mrs. Boots De Vola have underwent the process of being LSB teacher, PSB teacher, before she was declared as regular teacher in Banana National High School. It has been five years that she handled Aralin in section one. There are congruency on each year complaint but since the students are afraid of failing her subject they remained quiet. I seldom hear news about her projects and the money she collected from her advisory class. Every single mistake has an specified amount to be collected as fine, but the students don’t know where these money will be spent. Another concern about Mrs. Boots De Vola is the way she handled and treated her students. She always nag and shout to students, for her it’s the way of disciplining her students. Some of the students chose to dropped schooling because they felt being degraded and they do not have money for everyday fine. Lately, a mother asked her about the special project of her son amounting one hundred thirty pesos. The project was properly discussed, but we found out that......

...Case Scenario Case Scenario 1 1. Human services can help Sophia’s mother by getting her help for substance abuse. Her mother may not see that she has a problem, but if her daughter is missing school and coming to school dirty then her focus is not on her child. Human services can keep Sophia in foster care until her mother is able to care for her correctly. 2. Sophia’s mother is looking at child protective services as the bad guys for taking away her daughter for the second time. This is painful for her and it makes her resent the help. However it could also work as she realizes that to get her substance abuse and prove that she can be healthy and stable for her daughter. Then her daughter can be returned to her. Case Scenario 2 1. Being a helper for John, the first thing I would do is have a psychological exam done. I would also get as much information from John as possible; I would also attempt to find any family member’s that may be able to offer John a place to stay. Talking to family may offer the helper some insight. It sounds as though John thinks he doesn’t deserve anything better. Maybe he lost his family because he couldn’t provide for them. So he feels he doesn’t deserve to be warm and comfortable. The helper should gain trust by meeting with John often, letting him know that we care for him and want the best for him; the helper should also get him into therapy. 2. How does John outlook about receiving help affect his ability to get his needs-met?...

...Chapter 2: Deals Galore at Groupon Video Case Questions: 1. What features of contemporary e-commerce does Groupon Now! Utilize? a. I think that Groupon Now is utilizing the mobile app as a way to allow both consumer and merchant to communicate with each other. Now, most websites have a mobile app or something similar so people can be connected all the time, like Ebay. It’s very easy to use and therefore increases the chance of consumers purchasing a deal. It allows for people to share things with their friends, which is vital in social networking and allows for the service provider to receive more customers. It also uses personalization as a tool. It’s also great that a subscriber can show the coupon on the phone rather than have to print it out like other coupons. It provides value to customers and it’s providing a service that is in demand for many people, not just college students looking to save a dollar. It also gives buying power to the consumers and still maintains control for the merchant. 2. What value does this service provide subscribing merchants? What value does it provide customers? b. It provides merchants the value of control over their revenue and when and how much to release the deals for. The fact that the deals are limited in time and quantity helps merchants know the business they might have and be prepared for it. It’s also good that a certain number of coupons must be sold, so that the merchant is making some profit from......

...sponsors were now off the hook, so to speak” ( Kerzner, 330). Yes, both project sponsors where set on completing the project no matter what. Ultimately the two sponsors blamed someone else for their mistakes and shortcomings in order not to look bad. 4. What options are available to a project manager when there exists a disagreement between the sponsor and the project manager? “Quantum Telecom had a world-class project management methodology with five life cycle phases and five gate review meetings. The gate review meetings were go/no-go decision points based upon present performance and future risks. Each sponsor was authorized and empowered to make any and all decisions relative to projects, including termination” ( Kerzner, 329). In this case it seems that the sponsors were given a bit too much power over the project. The project managers would have to bring their disagreements directly to upper management. 5. Can your answer to the above question be outlined as part of the project management methodology? If an Agile approach was taken to manage this project the project manager would need to manage the sponsor’s expectations. If there are disagreements the project manager would need to document them. It is up to the project manager to insure that all stakeholders are in the same boat.

Qantas Case Study

...QANTAS CASE SUDY ACG31- Auditing Theory and Practice Assignment 2 Word Count 2,682 QANTAS INHERENT RISK FACTORS (Question 1) 1. There is an inherent risk relating to the accuracy of an account balance of Property Plant and Equipment which is compose of freehold land, buildings, leasehold improvements and aircraft and engines. Aircraft and engines represent 70% of the total account balance of Property Plant & Equipment that is $12,341M (Annual Report 2008, p.75). The accumulated depreciation which accounts for 60% of total aircraft cost suggests the possibility that some aircraft are already obsolete as in the case of Dash 8 100 series aircraft which will retire by August 2008 (Commonwealth Securities Ltd 2008). In addition, according to a media release dated 18/7/08, Qantas will retire up to 22 older aircraft from its fleet of 228 (including announcements previously made)(Commonwealth Securities Ltd 2008). It was also reported that Qantas will proceed with its major fleet re-equipment program of new and more fuel efficient aircraft such as the A380 and B787 due to rising oil and fuel prices (Qantas Airways Limited n.d.b) This is an indication that the property plant and equipment is overvalued due to the possibility of obsolescence of some older aircraft and engines thereby resulting to material misstatement of the account balance of Property, Plant and Equipment. Physical examination of the aircrafts......

The definition of Leadership is the quality of those who take charge or show the way The Dictionary Project, INC (2006, p.184).

The definition of Management is people who manage any enterprise, an administration The Dictionary Project, INC (2006, p.195). Leadership within an organization is very important key to making or breaking an organization. A leader needs to be trusted and his or her actions will set the pace of the organization.
