Any other vehicle feels a bit sterile by comparison. Even a Ferrari F430 feels a touch emasculated when parked next to the nasty, brilliantly insectile Gallardo

Our verdict

Audi ownership has brought the baby Lambo into the realms of a usable, reliable supercar. Styling that still snaps necks, performance enough for any human from that 520bhp V10. The only fly in the ointment? The new 540bhp, re-styled version is just about to arrive.

Comfort

Remarkably comfortable for a car with such huge ability, there's plenty of vision (for a mid-engined supercar) and plenty of space for both occupants as well as a handy E-gear sequential manual 'box with auto mode if you're a lazy bugger. The car itself is much smaller than you might imagine, so even parking the thing is relatively easy.
10 out of 20

Performance

A five-litre V10 with around 520bhp (a tad more in the Superleggera) and 376lb ft of torque mean that the Gallardo has the go to match the show; 0-62mph in just 3.9 seconds and a close enough 197mph top speed. Even better is the fact that these figures are achievable reliably thanks to that four-wheel drive system and strong mechanicals. You will be impressed.

Cool

Even though Jeremy Clarkson has owned a convertible, the Gallardo is still enormously, vibrantly cool. Sell a kidney.

Quality

Since Audi took over the quality has risen a thousand fold, but you will notice Audi bits inside. Since the bits they used (stuff like the sat-nav, air-con and central dash electronics) are exceptional in their original cars, it shouldn't be too much of a worry.

...will be receiving professional services. According to Pope and Vasquez (2007), informed consent provides the client and the therapist the opportunity to understand his or her legal rights and that they each have an equal vested interest in the treatment process. Pope and Vasquez (2007) also stated that informed consent is a decision making-process that gives the client the... The informed consent is the agreement between two parties to work collaboratively (Pope & Vasquez, 2007). In psychology, the client signs the consent form to allow treatment from the psychologist who may include testing, treatment, and initial psychological assessment. The patients have the right to their information; in terms of benefits, alternative treatments and about the risks. If the patient does not understand what he or she is giving permission to, he or she can allow an authorized decision-maker. The law requires that all persons take reasonable steps to clarify and communicate adequately with their patients about their risks and benefits. The informed consent is basically the understanding and justification of power that should not be abused intentionally or accidentally (Pope & Vasquez, 2007). The informed refusal is when a patient is refusing care; because of legal issues, trust, infectious diseases, clinical competent, and people who may refuse treatment for others because of age and the health risk.

Diversity

...(Gunn & Gullickson, 2007). A hostile workplace affects an organization. Lost productivity, absenteeism, increased use of healthcare benefits, and reduced morale are a few examples of the monetary loss associated with allowing this type of workplace environment to continue. High employee turnover and the need to replace and train new workers is an expenditure that companies cannot afford in this global economy. Alphonso Lopez-Vasquez (2006) have identified a partial list of common behaviors or acts that preclude isolation in the workplace. Among them are: • They do not give me the useful information or purposely give me incorrect information • They are overly critical of, and negatively evaluate my work on a consistent basis • They do not speak to me in front of others and reject my attempts at conversation • They restrict my professional promotion and undervalue my professional efforts • They accuse me of various mistakes and errors • They try to demoralize me and lower my self-esteem (Lopez-Vasquez, 2006). I can recall personal experiences at work in which a colleague of mine and I experienced isolation. As you probably know, I am the MEA (Memphis Education Association) representative at my workplace. My responsibilities include but are not limited to listening to the concerns of MEA members. A uniqueness at my workplace is that the assistant principal, the colleague that I previously mentioned, is also an MEA member.......

Ethics Awareness Inventory

...(application or actions) (The Williams Institute for Ethics and Management, 2012). Analyze the relationship between personal and professional ethics Ethics affect individuals in his or her personal and professional lives, when ethics is considered many people think of the ability to tell the difference from right and wrong (Vasquez, Andre, Shanks, & Meyer, 2008). Personal ethics are based on an individual’s beliefs, values, and morals, and the ability to determine what is right and wrong. Oftentimes an individual’s personal ethics is determined by his or her family, religion, and culture (Vasquez, Andre, Shanks, & Meyer, 2008). Professional ethics show integrity, honesty, and showing respect for others around them such as coworkers, clients, and customers within the workplace. An individual’s professional ethics also can be formed by an individual’s family, religion, and culture as well. It is important to remember that an individual’s ethics can affect the individual in his or her personal life as well as his or her professional life. Individuals who have good ethical perspectives in his or her professional life do not lie, steal, or cheat (Vasquez, Andre, Shanks, & Meyer, 2008). Conclusion Ethical awareness is important for individuals to know and understand, individuals who understand his or her ethical perspectives has a good grasp on life and what it is that he or she wants and expects from others around them.

...the workers are treated, as they seem to be working in very dangerous conditions because of the company’s commitment to efficiency. Workers have to sign a document waiving their right to medical opinions outside of company doctors. One worker, Bobby Vasquez, has been with the plant since the 1970s and has suffered several injuries on the job. Some of these injuries were the result of improper protection offered by the plant, and in some cases the company medical doctors grossly underestimated the nature of his injuries. Vasquez told McCulloch that the plant operators give the workers drugs to improve efficiency, and “let tainted meat go out for sale” (Dolansky, 2003, p.280). McCulloch has seen that the company’s policies on safety in terms of both the meat and the workers are surprisingly poor. He has recently learned that the company wants him to fire Vasquez because he suffered a heart attack and was going to require long and expensive recovery that the company did not want to pay for. Stakeholders John McCulloch McCulloch is involved in this situation because he feels as though he is personally contributing to the operations of a company that he has strong ethical problems with. If he decides to fire Vasquez and continue working at the plant, he will likely continue making good money but he will be unhappy with himself and his job. If he refuses the command he will likely be fired or at the very least have his upward mobility in the company limited. As......

Inventory

...meaning has become so multifaceted that people’s views about ethics have become unstable and broad. Ethics relate to moral principles to guide individuals and to teach them how to conduct themselves in society by differentiating between rightness and wrongness. The standard of right and wrong defines the aspect of ethics. Ethical dilemmas will arise and will bring a tangle of questions to the professional. The professional will wrestle with questions that will be hard to admit to themselves and others (Pope & Vasquez, 2011). It is human nature to make rushed decisions and mistakes makes humans question their professional and personal ethics. Ethics will help the professional answer those tangled questions. An ethical awareness will let the professional weigh the choices that will affect the lives of colleagues, the public, and the clients. An ethical awareness will free the professional from the restraining webs of fallacy, carelessness, daily pressures, and habit (Pope & Vasquez, 2011). After taking the Ethics Awareness Inventory, a summary of the findings will be analyzed to address and explain the importance of the personal ethical perspective, and the relationship between professional and personal ethics. My EAI Results Every individual has different perspective views of ethics. The inventory will help evaluate an individual’s ethical style. On the inventory, there are four categories that help analyze the different perspective of ethics (Williams Institute for Ethics......

...Table of Contents I. History Context/Fact Pattern II. Procedural History/Opposing Arguments of the Counsel III. The Holding Vasquez v. Hillery In 1962, An African-American man named Booker T. Hillery was trialed and convicted for the first degree murder of Marlene Miller, a fifteen-year old girl who lived in Hanford, California. Hillery was accused of stabbing Miller with scissors while she was said to be sewing a dress alone in her home. He was also accused of fighting with Miller and hogtied her only to stab her repeatedly in her chest. Unfortunately for Hillery, there was someone who witnessed the incident and claimed that it had been Hillery at the home who had also been convicted of rape and had been on parole at the time for the crime he committed in the past. Hillery pleaded innocent but was indicted of the crime regardless of the facts simply because the members of the grand jury were systematically excluded of the black race. Clifford Earl Tedmon argued the cause and filed a brief on behalf of Hillery. The Warden (Vasquez) of San Quentin State Prison requested that the Court retire a “doctrine of equal protection jurisprudence first announced in 1880.” He announced to the court that “The time has come for us to abandon the rule requiring reversal of the conviction of any defendant indicted by a grand jury from which members of his own race systemically excluded.” He was “thrice sentenced” to death for the murder in which that sentence was......

Ethical Porn

...2014) While feminist porn is ethically produced porn, which means performers are paid a fair wage and they are treated with care and respect; their consent, safety, and well-being are critical, and what they bring to a production is valued. Feminist porn explores ideas about desire, beauty, pleasure, and power through alternative representations, aesthetics, and filmmaking styles. Feminist porn seeks to empower the performers who make it and the people who watch it. (Taormino, T. 2013) In ethical porn, everything is safe and consent is part of the narrative, which enables viewers to watch whatever plays out guilt-free. ‘Ethical porn’ is used to describe the performers work, and ‘feminist porn’ is more specifically the kind of work. (Vasquez, T. 2012) Feminist have had a very complicated relationship with pornography, anti-porn activists often showcase the most violent or kinky porn that show images of women being degraded, humiliated, and beaten to show how mainstream pornography is. With this, mainstream pornography reinforces the idea that some forms of sex are unethical and non-consensual, leave the woman who enjoys rough sex, bondage, dominance, sadism, or machochism as they have something to be ashamed of. In mainstream porn, women are abused, forced to work with partners they might not want to work with. Men have a tendency to be very abusive to the women and treating them as less than equal co-workers. The men more often than not make a higher salary......

Ethics in Counseling

...others and to society in general. Corey and colleagues (2011) define six basic moral principles that form the foundation of ethical behavior at the highest level. These principles are autonomy, nonmaleficence, benevolence, justice, fidelity, and veracity (Corey, et al., 2011). The American Association of Christian Counselors was formed to serve psychotherapists with a Christian perspective and published its first code of ethics in 1998 (Clinton and Ohlschlager, 2002). The Importance of Ethics in the Therapeutic Relationship “Psychotherapy is a remarkable venture. It involves three different phenomena: trust, power, and caring. Understanding, respecting and handling carefully all three is one of our greatest ethical challenges” (Pope & Vasquez, 2010). Clinton and Ohlschlager (2002) state that the character of the therapist is an essential part of the therapeutic relationship and that the therapeutic relationship is key to the helping process. For the therapeutic relationship to exist the client must be comfortable uncovering hidden thoughts and experiences with the counselor. For that to take place, the counselor must exhibit traits that convey the safety of the therapeutic relationship. A caring demeanor and ethical behavior are key elements to building that trust (Clinton and Ohlschlager, 2002). There are the two basic kinds of ethics in professional counseling are virtue ethics and principle ethics (Corey, et al., 2011). They define virtue ethics as aspirational and......

...on Saturday September 20, 2014 from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM. 1. Why did you become a Police Officer? (Answered by Officer V. Vasquez.) “Ever since I was a child, and as far as I can remember, I was attracted to Police work. When I turned 14 I enrolled in the Police Explorer program at my local Police Department. Later on, when I became an adult I worked in loss prevention for a National Department Store, so when I was 20 years old I attended West Coast College in Orange County and graduated from their police academy in two years. “ 2. Is the career everything you expected it to be? (Answered by Officer V. Vasquez.) “Yes, my work is everything I expected and more. Police work is very exciting and demanding, but at the same time is very rewarding, because I get to help people. Often times I use my interactions with the public to educate them on the law. Usually, after I explain the reasons for stopping them, they react in a very positive way.” 3. Did you purposely choose the type of agency you work for? (Answered by Officer E. Romo.) “Yes. I was a Cadet with the Santa Monica Police Department and after I graduated from the Police Academy at Rio Hondo College, I applied with different Municipalities and the City of Monterey Park hired me five years ago.” 4.

Charlie strolls into Madrasso’s Italian Restaurant on Grant St. as he approaches the hostess a booming voice comes from the back. “ Send him back, I know why he is here.” Charlie walks back slowly scanning the room for the voice, as he comes through an open door there he is Juan Vasquez himself. “ How do you know who I am?” Charlie asks. “ Carmine told me you’d be coming, me and him are associates.” Vasquez says as he sips on a glass of gin. “ So you know who has my wife?” Charlie questions. “ Why do you expect me to know,” Vasquez says with a slight grin on his face “ I’m just a businessman.” “ I know Carmine is behind it, and I want to know where they are taking her!” Charlie yells as he stands up from the table. “ Sit down you are making a scene,” Vasquez pleads. “ or my men will have to rough you up.” Just then Charlie notices a few men assembling around the restaurant clearing out the patrons that were having lunch. “ Fine I’ll sit.” Charlie says just as one of Vasquez’ goons walks in.
