...Textual Analysis Philip Morris International The move structure is expository with clearly defined sections for respectively situation, problem, solution and evaluation. Line 2 briefly states the situation and stipulate that litigations are inefficiency and unavailing, whereas lines 5 - 9 elaborate on the matter and describe the problem. The solution is diminutive stated in line 13, and bluntly claim their solution to be correct and de jure. The evaluation starts in line 13 and reaches a interim conclusion in line 15, and the remainder of the text can be seen as an elaborative evaluation of the litigations, and ends abruptly in line 52 without an actual conclusion. The move structure is rather unusual, as the evaluation constitutes the vast majority, hence the textual analysis will primarily revolve around the lines 1 - 15, and incorporate the evaluation as supplementary information. The media text embraces all of the appeal forms to a certain degree, and uses argumentative discourse to persuade the reader. The primary appeal form is undeniably logos, which also aligns with the previously defined expository move structure. With the primary focus on logos, PMI undertake a historical approach to persuade the reader of litigation being insufficient as a means of control. An example of logos is found in line 38 - 44, where PMI elaborate on past and ongoing litigations. PMI utilize repetitions and enumerations of the countries implicated, which substantiate and emphasize PMI’s...

95 Thesis by Morris Venden

...Written by Morris Venden Preface In these final hours of earth's history "one interest will prevail, one subject will swallow up every other—Christ our righteousness."— Sons and Daughters of God, p. 259. To help fulfill this statement we present these theses on Christ and righteousness by faith. Our author, Morris Venden, pastor at Southwestern Adventist College in Keene, Texas, presents these not as the last word but as a discussion stimulator. In particular we would appreciate your editing any or all of these theses. When you respond, please change or add supporting scriptural references if needed. If a significant number of changes are offered and accepted we will reprint the list in the future. So please write, act, react, submitting your views whether in letter or article form. We want to hear from you. No. 1: A Christian does what is right because he is a Christian, never in order to be one (John 15:5). No. 2: Righteousness equals Jesus. We have no righteousness apart from Jesus (Rom. 1:16, 17). No. 3: The only way to seek righteousness is to seek Jesus. (Rom. 4:4, 5). No. 4: Christianity and salvation are based not on what you do but on whom you know (Rom. 3:28). No. 5: Doing right by not doing wrong is not doing right. Being good by not being bad is not being good (Matt. 23:27, 28). No. 6: Righteousness will make you moral, but morality will not make you righteous (Matt. 5:20). No. 7: Our good works are not what cause us to be saved. Our bad works are not......

Morris V. K-Mart, Inc.

...Morris v. K-mart. Inc. 621 N.E.2d 1147 (West 2013) Facts- On March 30, 1987, Jackalyne Morris went to a K-Mart store to purchase wallpaper. Once Mrs. Morris retrieved the necessary wallpaper in her cart, she proceeded to the housewares department. While in the housewares department, Mrs. Morris stepped away from her cart and when she returned to the cart, her right foot slipped on a piece of plastic. As a result of Mrs. Morris slipping, she fell which caused her to injure her right hip and leg. She was then helped to the front of the store where she gave the piece of plastic to a store employee who identified the plastic as a “shelf talker”. A “shelf talker” is a device that is attached to and suspended from a shelf to display sales goods. During trial, the employee testified that he gave the piece of plastic to a member of K-Mart’s security force and the piece of plastic had been lost. Hence, K-Mart did not introduce the piece of plastic at trial. Issue- Is there sufficient evidence that K-Mart was negligent on keeping their floors free of debris? Is there sufficient evidence that Mrs. Morris allegedly slipped on this piece of plastic without noticing it? Rule- According to, Slip and Fall law refers to the area of law governing personal injury claims which involve specific types of accidents wherein the party’s injury is the result of a fall. This area is a subset of Tort law and overlaps with Litigation law. Specifically, slip...

And this proves that the company should go with the restructuring rather than going with the offer made by Phillip Morris Thus we recommend that the Kraft’s should go with the proposed restructuring in search for a better value for the shareholders B. Are these forecasts reasonable? Provide an evaluation/critique of the main assumptions. As the management feels that the Phillip Morris has underpriced them, and their value is much more than the proposal at $90. And they can easily increase their value by restructuring. They can prove to Phillip Morris that what they are paying is actually less, by showing them their restructuring benefits and can claim to increase the bidding value. krafts can also pitch that Phillip Morris is actually paying very less because of the interest tax shield that will be available for the leverage that will be taken. Taking this interest tax shield into consideration, the value that Phillip Morris is paying comes out to a The restructuring using the debt will......

...Monica Gomez Ms. Gregory English 3P/Period 3 Is it Really Justice? The killing of Ferguson Missouri native, Michael Brown, and the astonishing verdict that followed, gave life to riots all throughout the country that have surged in defense of seeking justice for the fallen teen’s life. After months of deliberation, a grand jury decided not to indict Officer Wilson, the police officer who shot Michael, for his death. With the public in total opposition to the given verdict, anger and violence rose, with people believing that justice had not been given to the black teenager. Waves of protestors stepped up throughout all the states, defying the authorities in order to gain the equity that the teen deserved to have. In the midst of all the sudden chaos, the real motives these protestors had to riot have diluted, being replaced with haphazard civil disobedience and manipulative media to document it all. The fifth political cartoon shows a picture of a person breaking into a store and stealing a huge flat screen TV. At the same time, bored news broadcasters are present asking him questions pertaining to the Ferguson crisis. The man, looking like a thug, responds to the news lady’s question with “Michael? Michael who?”. This shows how the man is oblivious to the Ferguson turmoil, having no real cause to defy the law. The man is simply taking advantage of all the chaos around him to get away with committing crimes that he would not be able to get away with under any other......

...Monica Lewinsky breaking the silence ‘’Of the cyberbullying related suicides in the last decade, 43% have occurred since Tyler sadly jumped from that bridge. And that’s not even including stats for last year.’’ Cyber bullying is a serious problem we have, which easily can lead to suicidal thoughts or even worse suicide. Monica Lewinsky finally speaks out on ending online abuse, after a decade of public silence. The speech ‘’Monica Lewinsky breaking the silence’’ is a speech by Monica Lewinsky and was a speech she delivered at Forbes’ 30 under 30 summit conference in Philadelphia, and published in Forbes magazine, October 10th 2014. She tells us about her previous affair with president Bill Clinton. When their affaire became public, the scandal was known as the Lewinsky-scandal and had a very negative influence on Monica Lewinsky, which lead to public humiliation. The receiver of the speech is young entrepreneur and achievers at the Forbes’ conference, and people who are interested in business, since Forbes is an American business magazine. Monica Lewinsky’s intention with this speech was first of all to speak out about the story that had ruined her and her reputation back in the late 90’s. She also came forth and told her story to help others. She believes in the power of stories, that they can inspire, comfort, educate and help things for the better.

Monica Lewinsky: Ted Talks

...MONICA LEWINSKY: TED TALKS The story of Monica Lewinsky is synonymous with the presidency and subsequent impeachment of President Bill Clinton by the house of Assembly on December 19, 1998. However, the story is also a cursory tale about the impact of social media in our society. In this sincere, very somber reflective narrative, Monica details the part social media played in the saga and its destructive effects on her life. She narrates the effect of the saga on her life, how she contemplated suicide in the depths of her despair and what helped her get through it all. The main focus of the talk was harassment and bullying especially on social media. With her story as the backdrop, Monica erased from my mind the image of her in that blue beret and replaced it with the image of a confident woman who has made mistakes, suffered from her mistakes, learnt from her mistakes and grown from her mistakes. In taking this very public stance against bullying, she attacks the institutional mentality that makes public shaming permissible and acceptable. She denounces the environment that makes “humiliation” a commodity and gives perfect strangers the permission to “stab” you with their words. She criticizes the internet community for pacing a value on the clicks that a story generates and blames that value for the rampant abuse and reckless rise of cyber bullying. Monica’s speech was heartfelt and humanized her for all those who had labeled her and called her all sorts of names based...

Philip Morris Stakholders

...): Phillip Morris International has successfully become the number one tobacco company in Indonesia and it owns 30% of the market. PMI has had its success because of targeting children as customer for their tobacco products such as cigarettes knowing “Since 1st October 2007 it is illegal to sell tobacco products to anyone under 18 years of age.” In a poverty place like Indonesia, there are very few regulations on selling and consumption of tobacco; PMI is using this to advertise directly to children. There are billboards promoting PMI’s cigarettes outside schools in the capital city of Indonesia. Children are very easily influenced because of their insufficient knowledge; a prime example is the “Smoking Baby” who became a YouTube superstar after a video was posted of the baby smoking cigarettes. The two year old baby smoked 20 cigarettes a day. Furthermore, a two year old baby whose grandfather allows him to smoke because it “tastes good.” PMI has increased revenue by the sales of cigarettes as the youth smoking rates have doubled, and the CEO of the company had this to say ,"I think we're doing the most responsible thing in Indonesia and that we've been very vocal advocates for restrictions." Moral problem: Should Phillip Morris International target children as customers of their poisonous tobacco products to increase revenue given that: (1) it is illegal to advertise and sell cigarettes to children; and (2) there are few regulations on tobacco in a poverty country like......

David Albuquerque, the vice-president of finance for the Latin American Division, was in charge of exploring possible financing arrangements and preparing a financing alternative plan. Albuquerque believed that Brazilian expected inflation rate and tax legislation, and the future exchange rate would play major roles in his analysis although it was not easy to predict. However, as a company’s consultant, we would help Mr. Albuquerque make the most effective decision that associated with the least risk possible.
