The Center City Anuraphilic (frog lovers) society has fallen on hard times. Abraham, Bobby and Charlene are the only remaining members and each feels equally entitled to take possession of the society’s collection of live rare tropical frogs. The decision is made to use the method of sealed bids and fair shares to decide who will take possession of the entire collection and how much will be paid in compensation to the other members.
Abraham unseals his estimate of the value of the collection at $12,000.00. Bobby’s estimate of the value of the collection is $6,000.00. Charlene values the collection at $9,000.00.
- Who receives the collection of frogs?
- What is each person’s fair share of the monetary value of the collection?
- Why is the monetary amount of each fair share different?
- How much money is owed to each of the two people who do not “win” the collection of frogs?
- In your opinion how “Fair” is the process described above?
Now pretending for a moment that you like frogs, we will insert you into the situation under special circumstances. Despite (or perhaps because of) your love of all things amphibious, you currently lack the funds to pay each of the others their probable fair share. You will not receive the collection, but wish to receive as much money as possible. You have no knowledge of the amounts in each of the sealed bids, but strongly suspect that Abraham will bid between $10,000.00 and $12,000.00.
- Given that you cannot afford to “win” the process, describe how you will go about deciding what to put down for your own estimate of the value of the collection.
As a new employee at Canyon rental, an outdoor outfitters and supply shop, your boss has asked you to look at the internal control system within the store. He is seeking a loan for expansion and must have his books audited. The auditor asked about his control procedures and documentation. He has no idea what the auditor is talking about. Your boss has asked you to do what you need to understand the system and has asked for a memo with your observations and recommendations by the end of the week. Through interviews and observation you notice the following:
- Purchase orders, and sales invoices are not pre-numbered due to the higher cost of printing the forms.
- To save time the sales clerk enters the sales at the end of the day into the accounting records, prepares the deposit and delivers it to the bank.
- The sales clerk a trusted and long-term employee grants sales returns at her discretion.
- The purchasing manager both orders merchandise and approves the payment for the order.
- Betty Gamble, the bookkeeper has not taken a vacation in three years.
- Checks are brought to the owner twice a week for signing. He is overwhelmed by all of the paperwork and has asked for the checks only on which he stamps his signature.
In your memo, give a summary of the elements of an effective internal control system. Comment on each of your observations and if there is a weakness provide a solution. Your memo should be 2-3 pages.
CREDIBLE INTERNET SOURCES ONLY! NO PLAGERISM! ALL 3 SOURCES FROM INTERNET, NO TEXT! MAKE THIS SOUND LIKE A NORMAL PERSON WROTE IT, NO NEED TO GET ALL INTELLGENT SOUNDING TO THE POINT THAT YOU SOUND LIKE A MORON. MAKE SURE TO USE IN TEXT CITATIONS. Pick a moral problem or a case in business that we have not already analyzed in any detail in class. A moral problem is one in which there is some difference of opinion on what is right and wrong. The issue is not clear cut and there is no consensus about it. Similarly, a case should be one about which there is some debate. Write a paper arguing to a conclusion about the morality of the problem or the case you have chosen. The problem may consist either of a general issue of policy or a specific issue that is found in a case you analyze.
In your paper: (1) Start by explaining the moral problem or outlining the case. (2) Then present the moral arguments which support your conclusion. You may use whatever approach to moral argumentation (from among those we have studied) that you choose. Make clear the moral criterion you are using to decide the issue. Develop your arguments clearly, step by step, giving reasons for the position you defend. (3) Present and answer at least one argument that someone on the other side of the question might put forth.
You may use this assignment to pursue some moral issue in business we have not discussed in class. The issue might be one raised in some other class or one you find in the newspapers or periodicals . . . or it might be one that you are simply concerned about. The problem might deal with some aspect of a business practice within a profession in which you are interested; it might concern individual or corporate responsibility; it can deal with an aspect of advertising, discrimination and affirmative action, conflict of interest, trade secrets, multinationals, as examples. You may use a case in the text, as long as we have not discussed it and DeGeorge does not resolve it. You may use any sources that you wish for background information. The paper, however, is not to be a report of what other people say; you are to argue the issue to a conclusion.
If it is helpful, you might think of the paper as an article that you are writing to convince the general public about the morality of a practice or case; you might also think of it as a letter to a CEO or the President to convince of the morality or immorality of some practice or policy. A good paper will be well argued, and so convincing.
Your paper should be 3 to 5 pages in length. As with all of our papers, it should be formatted double-spaced with one-inch margins and will include a properly formatted works cited. There should also be at least 3 sources cited.

· Answer the following questions. Do NOT retype the question.
1. Write a paragraph explaining who Charles Darwin was, when he lived, and where, as well as some of the things he did that changed our view of the Universe. Link (Links to an external site.)
2. Explain why Darwin named his theory “Natural Selection.”
3. Try to explain Unnatural Selection or Artificial Selection, and describe how it is different from Natural Selection.
4. What causes some species to thrive while other species from the same time and place become extinct?
5. Describe diversity, what it means, and what kinds of things cause diversity it.
6. Explain how diversity determines who survives.
7. Animals and plants do not change or evolve in their own lifetime in response to changes in the environment, so how do species evolve over time?
8. Herbert Spencer was one of the fathers of Sociology. Spencer (not Darwin) thought Natural Selection must play a role in the formation of societies (groups of people working together to survive and prosper). However, Spencer thought a society was strong if everything was uniform, the same. Spencer thought diversity made a society less fit for survival. Spencer coined the phrase “survival of the fittest” to describe his own concept of social evolution. This was a tragic mistake. For a time Spencer’s hypothesis was popular among very conservative politicians because it played on people’s fear of others who were different, fear turned to hatred, and this led to racism, and many years later to genocide. So many people confused Spencer’s ideas with Darwin’s that Darwin changed the second edition of his book to read ” natural selection . . . which some call survival of the fittest. . . ” This was Darwin’s reference to Herbert Spencer’s idea. Make no mistake. Charles Darwin never embraced racism or hatred. Indeed, he and Alexander von Humboldt (another naturalist) were attacked in the newspapers for defending black people as humans, and part of human society. Darwin declared that human survival required diversity, that human society is stronger as variation increases. In your own words describe why we should not confuse evolution (natural selection) with ‘survival of the fittest’.
9. How does Darwin’s theory relate to Employment (or job seeking).
10. How does Darwin’s theory relate to business and economics?
11. Static means unchanging. Dynamic means changing. Use these two words and describe why survival increases as a species is more diverse and more evolutionary.
12. Why is a static economy unhealthy?
13. A person looking for a job is like an organism seeking to survive. How would a dynamic environment change both?
14. People used to assume organisms never change, but thanks to Darwin we now know they do. People also used to assume geology never changed. However, thanks to Humboldt we know even the mountains, rivers and oceans do change. People used to think that climate never changed, that it was always the same from age to age. In fact many thought that climate would only change at the end of the world, in a biblical sense. Link (Links to an external site.) What have we learned over the centuries, about climate. Has it changed? If it has, will it continue to change?
15. If Diversity (as the engine of evolution) is the source of biological and economic survival, why are so many people afraid of it, or opposed to it? This question is not about biological diversity. This question is more about “fear of evolution as a fact of life.” Survival through diversity within a species is the same thing as Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Here is the formula: [Survival through diversity within a species] = [Darwin’s Theory of Evolution] = EVOLUTION Evolution is as much a fact as Isaac Newton’s Theory of Gravity, and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and Heisenberg’s Theory of Uncertainty, Schrödinger’s Theory of Conservation of Information, and Democritus’ Theory of Matter, and Epicurus’ Theory of Truth, “that which is real exists, and that which is not real does not exist.” The problem is that people have a tendency to mince words, or play with words, to gain acceptance from other people in a crowd: such as when they are in a classroom (even an online class). Thus in a classroom in Salt Lake City it is very common to see the following situation. A teacher will say, “Raise your hand if you think Evolution of Species is real, and is a fact of nature.” Nearly all the hands will go up. However, privately over half the students in that classroom are lying when they raise their hand, because they do not truthfully think Evolution is a science or a fact. Some are honest, but many lie. Lying always seems fashionable. Often people publicly say, “Of course evolution is real. . .” but privately they say to themselves “Evolution is nonsense because man was created perfectly in the Garden of Eden about 6,000 years ago. . .” This is interesting, because to lie is to commit a moral error. Why would someone lie, especially someone who believes in the moral authority of a bible narrative? Why would they equivocate, or prevaricate? Raising a hand to affirm something they do not believe is a lie. Is this a balancing act? Do they believe it is better to raise their hand for the sake of social acceptance, and privately lie, than to not raise their hand and thus be honest with self? Especially in the pursuit of truth who cares what others may think? This discussion is not proposing that only certain people will lie. It is proposing that a commitment to be truthful is difficult under peer pressure. It is also proposing that one of our goals in this class is to convince students that the best way to live is to be consistent: something true in nature should also be accepted as true. There should be no conflict between being true to yourself and true to the facts of nature. In this situation, in this online course, in this question, I am asking you to raise your hand by posting a statement about the truth of evolution. Of course, I am also asking you to be truthful in discussing several issues:
16. Is Darwin’s theory of Evolution true, or is it false, and why do you feel that way? Do you personally accept the fact of biological evolution? Do you raise your hand in affirmation of Darwin’s theory of natural selection: which is the same thing as Evolution? Note to students: professors must write this way because we are well aware that students will exploit any ‘wiggle room’ in a question such as this.
17. What do you propose to do with the fact that evolution is a fundamental theorem of modern business theory, economic theory, medical theory, psychological theory, geological theory, chemistry, physics, and even Cosmology? If you think it is false, then explain your approach to all these fundamental theorems. If you think it is true, discuss how you can educate those around you who do not think it is true.
