Family (my choice): He was abused by his mother when he was a little kid so he is getting revenge.

Everything fit together at the end

3. The social conditions of Whitechaple is that everyone knows everything. When the prostitues are talking about gossip at the beginning of this film. No people still talk gossip.

4. I think prostitutes are the victims because first of all serial killers see them as easy targets because they think that they are “sex machines” which makes a serial killer have little remorse and hesitant. So they think that this “object” does not have friends or family so no one would really miss them or notice that they are gone. Therefor no one would make a sport that they are missing. Second of all they are to get alone because they would do anything for the money, so this serial killer could bring them in to their house and the prostitute wont think anythings going to go on exempt them having sex, so they are an easy…...

Jack the Ripper

...Jack the Ripper was one of the most famous and renowned killers in history. Even though he was not the first serial killer, he was the first killer to strike on a metropolis setting. Jack the Ripper was in his prime at a time when the media had a strong control over society and society had as a whole was becoming much more literate. Jack started his killing campaign at a time of political controversy between the liberals and social reformers along with the Irish Home rule partisans. The reports of Jack the Ripper were collected and reported by the police, but then the different newspapers with their political influences slightly distorted the stories to give them their own effect. It has been more the one hundred years since the last murder and there is no longer any more original evidence, and the "facts" about the stories have changed over time due to different writers or differing sources. The press changed Jack the Ripper from being a depressed killer of prostitutes to one of the most romantic figures seen throughout history. One fact that most sources agreed upon was that the Ripper was a killer who wanted nothing more than to strike fear into the entire city by horribly mutilating his victims and then leaving them in locations where they were sure to be seen. Jack was the type of killer that wants fame and loved the fact that his "name" was on everyone's lips and was able to strike fear into anyone and everyone's heart. In the late 1800's "Jack the......

Case Study : Jack Nelson's Problem

...Business Functions: HRM Tutorial Exercises Application Case: Jack Nelson's Problem As a new member of the board of directors for a local bank, jack Nelson was being introduced to all the employees in the home office. When he was introduced to Ruth Johnson, he was curious about her work and asked her what the machine she was using did. Johnson replied tat she really did not know what the machine was called or what it did. She explained that she had only been working there for 2 months. However, she did know precisely how to operate the machine. According to her supervisor, she was an excellent employee. At one of the branch offices, the supervisor in charge spoke to Nelson confidentially, telling him that “something was wrong,” but she didn’t know what. For one thing, she explained, employee turnover was too high, and no sooner had one employee been put on the job than another one resigned. With customers to see and loans to be made, she continued, she had little time to work with the new employees as they came and went. All branch supervisors hired their own employees without communication with the home office or other branches. When an opening developed, the supervisor tried to find a suitable employee to replace the worker who had quit. After touring the 22 branches and finding similar problems in many of them, Nelson wondered what the home office should do or what action he should take. The banking firm generally was regarded as being a well-run institution that had grown......

Jack the Ripper - Did Capitalism Kill the Women?

...Whitechapel London, also known as the East End, was the scene of at least five gruesome murders in 1988 that were committed by a killer now famously known as Jack the Ripper. These murders took place in the height of transition from feudalism to capitalism and fueled by this, the East End was plagued with gross overcrowding, unemployment, and was a place of severe poverty and prostitution. Marxist theories of alienation and dialectical materialism help to explain how the rise of capitalism formed the case setting and supported The Ripper’s murders of five women. In the mid-nineteenth century, an influx of Irish and Jewish immigrants hit England and swelled the population, including that of East London (Kershen 2008). Whitechapel suffered gross overcrowding and an urban proletariat started to emerge (Rumbelow 2001). Housing and working conditions became worse and poverty led many people to alcohol, crime and violence and women were driven into prostitution as work was hard to find (Vaughan 2008). Many people were dependent on lodging houses for a place to sleep, and would only be admitted if they had four pence as payment. Those who did not have the money were left outside on the streets (Rumbelow 2001). The first of the official Jack the Ripper murders occurred in the early hours of 31st August 1988 (Rumbelow 2001). A woman later identified as forty-two year old Polly Nichols was found with her throat cut from ear to ear and when taken to the morgue and undressed by morgue...

Capitalism - Jack the Ripper

...River Thames from the sewage of the West End, no matter where you lived in the East End, you still had to walk through the rising filth. These living conditions were the main reason for the various outbreaks of diseases, sores and premature deaths during the 1800’s (Engels, 2005). Engels (2005) further discussed that a lack of medical assistance was a major issue, those that needed help had no way of obtaining it. Therefore, many of the illnesses of today were undiagnosed then; this could have been a major cause to many of the problems experienced during those times. The situation would have been made worse during the years that the Jewish immigrants were fleeing Russia, Poland and Germany from persecution or economic hardship (Jack the Ripper 1888, 2010) or of the Long Depression which spanned from 1873 to 1896. The main causes of the Long Depression were the Irish Famine, Irish Land War and the Land Act (Wikipedia, 2012). During these times, education was not so different to the classes of society that people lived in during the 1800’s. Which education a child attended was based on their class within society. The upper class children attended private schools, the middle class attended separate institutions and then there was elementary education for the masses or the lower class (Gillard, 2011). Engels (2005) further mentions that these educators for the elementary schools of the lower classes have only taken on the positions for survival, as these......

Jack Daniel Case Study

...Jack Daniel’s International Strategy: By sticking to Its Homespun, Down-Home Story, the Tennessee Sour Mash Whiskey Has Increased Sales at Home and Abroad In the United States Jack Daniel sales showed no growth in the 80s and 90s; the only growth was for premium and superpremium whisky (Pearce and Robinson 2009). The company realized that generation X & Y did not have the same taste as the baby boomers; therefore, they need to change their strategies. Jack Daniel came up with a strategy to target younger crowds who surprisingly preferred the premium taste of Jack Daniel in overseas markets. In order to implement their strategies Jack Daniel had to conduct an internal and external assessment of the company. Although the company had already been selling whisky globally, their assessment would be in how to reach a younger audience before entering the niche market. Jack Daniel needed to assess their internal factors such as advertising and marketing strategies for targeting youth in other countries. For example, sponsoring concert events and placing ads that would attract the Chinese or London’s youth. External factors that Jack Daniel needed to assess were where they were planning on placing these marketing ads and how will their whiskey reach youth in other countries. Jack Daniel has a super strong brand story that has proven to overcome any overseas backlash. The whisky story comes from small town USA; giving them visual advantage of how Whisky should be made.......

Jack Nelson Case Study

...Jack Nelson Case 1. The problem is that there is not proper recruiting program in the bank. The supervisor is hiring the employees without the proper interviews and the proper background check. When there is no proper training the turnovers increase and the company cannot be productive. Also, there has been a large growth in the company and not the proper requirements. The employees do not feel valued in a work area that they do not understand, and that people don’t have the time to make them feel secure it’s a problem also because employees are expected to take charge of their careers and if they don’t know what to do they will not work their best. 2. Setting up a HR unit would definitely help the bank. In order for the company to be productive and efficient a company must follow ethnical guidelines also the manager should not be the one hiring and interviewing the future workers. If a HR unit is placed in the home office the employees would know what their work is and what is expected from them. The HR unit would help train the workers and make them feel valued. Also it would help the bank in all its branches. 3.  Some of the functions that a HR unit should carry out are: job analyses, daily work needs, interviewing, hiring, advising and providing help to problems that workers may have. Also a HR unit should train and give orientation to new employees, also verifying all salaries are paid and the contracts are signed. Line managers are there to work every...

Ge and Jack Welch Case Study

...Case Study Write Up: GE’s Two Decade Transformation: Jack Welch’s Leadership Teri Raven, EMBA 709 “GE’s Two-Decade Transformation” analyzes the leadership of Jack Welch, CEO of General Electric. When he took over GE as CEO in 1981, Jack Welch had big shoes to fill. His predecessor, Reg Jones, had been referred to as a “management legend” and been voted “CEO of the Year” and “CEO of the Decade” 3 and 1 times, respectively. Jones had led the company for 8 years and had done well both professionally and politically. Upon his initiation as CEO in 1981, the Wall Street Journal had already likened Welch’s replacing Jones to replacing a legend with a “live wire.” The business climate was shaky when Welch took over in April 1981, with the economy in recession. Welch had only one option: success. And to achieve success in the current climate, he would need his team to be “better than the best.” In fact, the choices were to be #1, #2, or nothing at all. He soon used this philosophy in his categorization of businesses into core, high-technology, and services. Welch’s 10 year vision was to lead GE to a state in which it would be viewed as “the most profitable, highly diversified company on earth, with world quality leadership in every one of its product lines” (Bartlett/Wozny); he sought to achieve this via a massive restructuring of the business. His philosophy of “fix, sell, or close” businesses was born, yet the reality was often that in the economic state of that time,...

Jack Welch Ge Case Study

...1.) How difficult a challenge did Welch face in 1981? How effectively did he take charge? When Jack Welch accepted the position of CEO of GE in 1981 he faced a number of looming challenges which firstly included taking the reins of the company following a complete reorganization by a strong, successful predecessor. The second major challenge he faced was the new globalized marketplace in which GE had to compete. Welch had to act fast before GE's territory was taken over by global growth from foreign companies. The third challenge was the beginning symptoms of a contracting economy which, by 1982, would become a deep recession. Jack Welch approached the first challenge of taking over from a successful predecessor by deciding that keeping the status quo would not guarantee GE future success. He felt that GE was to be a standard; they needed to be “better than the best”. This fierce drive to restructure the company during the next 5 years, immediately after the organization had barely finished their prior restructuring, also helped solve his other immediate challenge: the economy. He effectively implemented a new strategy, “Fix, Sell, Close.” If a business could be fixed so it could be #1 or #2 in its competing category then it was kept, otherwise the business was sold or closed. In order to prepare for the incoming global competition, Welch decided to part ways with 12 of his 14 previously hired business heads. The new business heads had to fit a certain billing: “strong......

Jack Bass Case Study

...Jack Bass, Accounting Professor Case 2 Keiser University ACG 5075 Dr. Gray May 17, 2011 Jack Bass A cheating situation occurred with Jack Bass, an accounting professor. Bass had given his students an exam and at the end asked them to identify any test items that had been graded incorrectly by the Scantron machine and submit it to the teaching assistant. After this Bass suspected that some had changed their answers. So, for the next exam, Bass made a copy of the students’ exams and asked them to do the same thing for identifying incorrect answers. After comparison of the copy and the resubmission it was discovered that some had changed their answers. Jack brought the situation to the dean and this resulted in those students withdrawing from the course and receiving sanction letter on their academic file. All the cheaters agreed to this accept one, D.R. Street III. His argument was that he misunderstood the directions and that he should be allowed to withdraw without a sanction letter. When the dean said no he had his father talk with the chancellor and ultimately he was allowed to withdraw without the sanction letter. Entrapment Jack Bass did not entrap his students by withholding the Scantron information from them. Cheating is a serious offence at any academic institution. Regardless of the situation, whether the cheater was caught off guard or not, cheating still occurred. Students are completely aware of the consequences of performing an act of academic......

Case Study: the Jack Welch Era at General Electric

...MGT430 Business Government & Society Mr. Burt Case Study 2 Please read Case Study: The Jack Welch Era at General Electric in Chapter 5 and answer questions 1 & 3. Please submit the answers by the end of week #3. At least one page is required. Answer Did GE in the Welch era fulfill its social responsibility duty? Could it have done better? What should it have done? Chapter 5 in the text, Business, Government, and Society by John F. Steiner and George A. Steiner, corporate social responsibility is defined as the corporate duty to create wealth by using means that avoid harm to, protect, or enhance social assets. General Electric in the Jack Welch Era fulfilled its corporate social responsibility but by marginal measures. Yes, GE fulfilled its economic responsibilities to society but it is a corporation’s duty to go beyond the lawful execution of their economic functions. Thus, in my opinion, GE could have done better, much better considering its huge financial successes from 1981 through 2001. According to the text, in spite of GE’s financial net earnings of $12.7 billion in 2000, it only donated less then 0.003% of its earnings towards grants for colleges, universities, and nonprofit groups. Additionally, GE won political campaigns to lower taxes in the states in which they operated; this ultimately lowered school budgets, negatively impacting resources available for education. This is further illustration that GE could have made more contributions to society...

Jack Wright Case 1

...August 25, 2015 Jack Wright Case 1 Jack Wright, Director Jack Wright would be considered an extremely successful businessman by today’s standards. Being a CEO of a prosperous major company in the Midwest, Dryden Corporation, Wright over the previous ten years has led the company to even more accomplishments than he originally thought possible. Through dozens of acquisitions, Wright managed to grow annual revenues to over a staggering two billion dollars. At the age of only 55, Wright had gained respect and a healthy reputation in the surrounding community and the industry itself. While Wright was very fruitful in his success, he was very interested in what one of his notable friends, John Rock, approached him with. Rock, the CEO of Mega Corporation, came to Wright in 2002 with the proposition of joining Mega’s board of directors. Mega Corporation was a large company with headquarters in the southeast. With eleven subsidiaries operating throughout the region, Mega’s sales averaged around seven billion, much larger than Dryden. Without looking at any other facts, it seems clear that Wright should accept this position on the board. However, at a closer look, maybe Wright should kindly decline the offer. From the beginning, Wright had been invited to many social gatherings involving other members of the board of Mega. These events included many dinners and a golf outing, in which Wright was able to network with Mega’s employees. Wright did not even realize......

Jack the Ripper

...Over the years, there have been many brutal murders all over the world. One of the most horendous and bloodiest series of murders took place in England in the late 19th century by a mysertious man known as "Jack the Ripper." Between August and November 1888, the Whitechapel area of London was the scene of five brutal murders. All of the murders were taken place less than a mile apart from each other. On August 31, 1888, Jack the Ripper killed his first victim. Mary Nichols' dead body was found in Buck's Row Whitechapel at around 3am. Her throat was cut and her body was disemboweled. Her murder was just the start of Jack the Ripper's "regin of terror." On September 8, 1888, the body of another prostitute was discovered in the backyard on 29 Hanbury Street. It was less than a mile away from Buck's Row, where the previous murder of Mary Nichols had taken place just a week before. This victim was Annie Chapman. Jack the Ripper removed her womb. When she was found, there was a leather apron tied around her body. That was a clue to who the murderer might have been. The area was flooded with police officers, and since there hadn't been any murders for a few weeks, they thought that they had scared him off. Shortly after Annie Chapman's murder, Sergeant William Thicke arrested John Pizer. John was known in the area as "Leather Apron." However, John Pizer was able to provide proof that he was not apart of the murder of Annie Chapman or Mary Nichols. Then he was released and......

Who Was Jack the Ripper?

...There are many possible suspects in the Jack the Ripper case. Some suspects seem more probable than others, however. Based on information that has been obtained from what happened during the “Autumn of Terrors,” as many call it, there are many facts that seem probable about Jack the Ripper. The specific suspects that have been publicized fit some of these possible qualities and tendencies of Jack the Ripper, though none fit all the standards. A background in medicine along with a history of some sort of mental illness are likely characteristics of the Ripper. Also, he was most likely someone that was often seen around his victims long before their murders. Jack the Ripper was most likely someone with a background in medicine. At the very least, it is feasible he had more basic anatomical knowledge than the average citizen of his time. Based on autopsies and reports from medical officials who saw the bodies after the murders, it is evident that the Ripper was able to remove his desired organ without disturbing any surrounding areas too severely. Dr. Frederick Gordon Brown, the medical examiner who performed the post-mortem exam on Catherine Eddowes, also believed the murderer had medical knowledge based on the exam he performed on Eddowes’ body: “I believe the perpetrator of the act must have had considerable knowledge of the position of the organs in the abdominal cavity and the way of removing them. It required a great deal of medical knowledge to have removed the kidney...

Jack

...Despite the many murders that occurred frequently in Eastend in the 1880’s, Ripper’s murders were said to be ‘singular’ and ‘peculiar’ which suggests that it was unique and that the method of murder was very different. The phrases ‘extraordinary violence’ and ‘excess of effort’ infers that Jack the Ripper was vicious, brutal and went over the top. The victims were the ‘poorest of poor’ so the murderer was not trying to rob the victims. Since there was ‘no adequate motive in the shape of plunder’ it suggests that Jack the Ripper committed these crimes because he or she enjoyed killing. However the source describes the work of Jack the Ripper as the ‘work of a demented being’ which suggests that Jack the Ripper was mad. 2. Study Sources A, B and C Does the evidence of Source C support the evidence of Sources A and B about the Ripper murders? Explain your answer. (8) Sources A and C comment on how the victims were poor so money was not the murderer’s motive. Also the details of how the victim was murdered in source C supports the fact, in source A, that the murder was peculiar and had extra-ordinary violence. However source C is more detailed on the method of murder whereas source A is general describing the murder but not the method. Source C supports source A to a very little extent. Sources B and C agree on the fact that the murder was committed with the use of a knife – ‘In the neck there was a long incision’ ‘cutting the...
