Presentation: Art of the Ancient World

The Ancient World covers the time from the Paleolithic period through the rise of Islam. Many of the "modern" notions of art such as abstraction, surrealism, and expressionism can trace their roots to the ancient world. The history of civilization, however, also articulates and formalizes the fundamental ties between government, philosophy, and art. Let’s examine the roots of this unique art and culture relationship more closely.

The Ancient World

The beginning of humankind's artistic pursuits is a subject of much debate. The earliest art forms we can find are the cave paintings done some 30,000 years before the Common Era. From what scholars can gather, much of the artwork has symbolic meaning with a possibility of being of religio-magical in nature. Most scholars will agree, however, that artwork seems to become more common as a society grows and matures. Thus, the intimate link between society and the art produced by its members is established. From the ancient Sumerian idols and ziggurats to the sophisticated and dictated styles of the Egyptians, art remained a force in the political and religious circles of society.

Archaic Greece, the Aegean, and Classical Greek Art

While religion played a central role in the cultures and arts of the Ancient World, it would be reinterpreted in early Greek culture. At the core of Greek religion was a large family of superhuman gods, often represented in human terms, sometimes superior to us, sometimes worse than us, but central was an implied intimacy and recursive relationship between human and god. Not surprisingly, this relationship framed Greek artistic endeavors. In fact, archaic Greek art featured temples to the gods, but simultaneously depicted the earthly existence of its people in vase painting and the freestanding kouroi. As Greek culture evolved, so too did the Greek art forms. Reflecting classic philosophical thought, art forms emerged that exhibited self-control, rational thought, and physical perfection.

The Roman Period

Although primarily copiers of Greek artwork, the Romans took to creating an absolute realism to their art. The blend of Greek style with the Etruscan style led to a prolific and original set of work. It is a time of achievement in the arts and culture, as well as total suppression. On the one hand, we see the development of tremendous feats of engineering and architecture in the Roman forums, aqueducts, and the Coliseum. Humanism, however, which reached its pinnacle in Greek civilization, would not surface again until the Middle Ages.

Judaism, Early Christianity, and the Rise of Islam:

With the growth and expansion of the Christian Empire, art tended toward the representation of spiritual and heavenly themes. The acts of Christ and biblical events were portrayed by almost every artist. Constantine erected basilicas that featured rounded shapes rather than the traditional churches. As with almost everything else, music in the late Roman period also reflected Roman decline and Christian ascension. Just as St. Paul took the Judaic and Eastern mystical traditions of Christian thought and shaped them into the logical processes of the Greco-Roman world, so early Christian music began to combine the music of Jewish worship with forms from the classical heritage.

Equally impressive and different is the Byzantine Style, which emphasized the symbolic over the representational. Geometric patterns and gold leaf were fused with mosaics to produce a uniquely Byzantine flavor. Meanwhile, the Islamic culture created elaborate mosques and ornate designs incorporating the text of the Koran, while Asian temples reached an apex of complexity and detail. In short, the “arts” were highlighted within each culture and religious sector of both the Eastern and the Western worlds.

Head of a Ptolemaic queen, Hellenistic, ca. 270–250 B.C.
The head of a Ptolemaic Queen kept at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, made of marble and made to be inserted in a statue separately. The head is made in the refined style of classic that was developed in Greece during the fourth century B.C.. The back of her head suggest there was a veil at one time since it is roughly done and not as refined as your face. It is believed that she is “Arsinoë II, who ruled with her brother, Ptolemy II, from 278 B.C. until her death in 270 B.C.” [Greek 2002.66]   The statue is made as a portrait for the face is detailed to resemble as such. After her death, her brother made her an independent deity and he referred to her often in connection to royal decrees. She was worshiped by the people not only as a Greek goddess but as an Egyptian goddess as well.
Kushite Pharaoh, Late Period, Dynasty 25, ca. 713–664 B.C.
That it is a Kushite Pharaoh of Egypt is clear from its distinctive Sudanese regalia. [Egyptian 2002.8] This Pharaoh is made of Bronze with gilding. The cap crown has an engraved falcon on the back indicating that this is to represent a Kushite Pharaoh also. However, the belt usually has the Kings’ name on it; here it has been erased on this statue. The kneeling Kings were to match the small divine image in the temple to satisfy the gods and restore blessings to Egypt. The King was there to give the gods what they wanted in order to have blessings poured upon Egypt during his rule. Kushite Pharaohs created harmony and stability in Egypt during their reign. They also encouraged resurgence in traditional art, architecture and religion.
In comparison, they are both of royalty during their time and they are both at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Ptolemaic Queen was identified where the Pharaoh’s belt had been erased therefore, his identity cannot be found. The Queen is made of marble while the Pharaoh is made of bronze with a gold gild overlay. The Queen is from the Hellenistic period and the Pharaoh is from the Dynasty 25 period. The Ptolemaic Queen was said to be of a dynastic ruler cult, it is also believed that the sculptured head was associated with the cult after her death. The Ptolemaic Queen was recognized from both Greek and Egypt as a goddess where the Pharaoh was only worshiped as the King in Egypt. The Pharaoh was not sculptured in an image of any one King during that period where as the Ptolemaic Queen was sculptured in the likeness of the Queen Arsinoë II. Both the Ptolemaic Queen and the Kushite Pharaoh statues are of the same period. They are sculptures, and during this period, they sculptured the likeness of their Queens and Kings for remembrance and worship.

can you help me with another assignment please....It is on accounting and it is due 6/20/09

 

If so here is the assignment :

 

2-3 paragraphs
Due Date: 6/20/2009 11:59:59 PM

The net income of Simon and Hobbs, a department store, decreased sharply during 2000. Carol Simon, owner of the store, anticipates the need for a bank loan in 2001. Late in 2000, Simon instructs the store's accountant to record a $10,000 sale of furniture to the Simon family, even though the goods will not be shipped from the manufacturer until January 2001. Simon also tells the accountant not to make the following December 31, 2000 adjusting entries:

  • Salaries owed to employees: $900
  • Prepaid insurance that has expired: $400

Why is Simon taking this action? Is her action ethical? Give your reason, identifying the parties helped and the parties harmed by Simon's action.

Expert:  Instructor Dee replied 5 years ago.
Renee, Here is your assignment. Let me know if I can be of further help.

In her anticipation of getting a loan, Carol Simon records the $10,000 sale of furniture in 2000, to increase the stores sales for the year. Carol Simon is doing not only her company an injustice in padding her income statement by showing the sale early but misleading anyone who may take a look at her financial statement for that year. Carol’s actions should be viewed as unethical as she is reporting her sales for the year are greater than they are. Her $10,000 sale should not be recorded until the furniture has been shipped from the manufacturer at the earliest.
Not showing the entries for the salaries or insurance underreports her liabilities for wages that have been earned and owed. The prepaid insurance before expiration is an asset however, now that it has expired, it becomes a liability and would need to be recorded as a liability.
Parties helped can only be Simon and Hobbs, obscuring the fine lines in their accounting ledger for securing a loan is to their advantage. The bank that loans the money, is to a disadvantage, for it has not be fully disclosed the true picture of Simon and Hobbs financial status at the end of the year. The risk the bank takes is based on the final line in the ledger and Carol Simon is not allowing the accountant to show the true figures. The accountant can also be affected in this scenario, if the company were to come under investigation the accountant can be held liable for falsifying documents. Though the bank is taking a higher risk that is not known, the accountant is the one who is taking the bigger risk, he has nothing to gain and everything to lose.

And it is done 6/27/09 It accounting again.

 

Select a company you are familiar with.

Explain each step of the accounting cycle. Describe at least one transaction that would occur at the company you selected in each of these steps.

 

Remember that accounting uses the double-entry method so every transaction will affect at least two accounts, at least one asset and one liability account and your entries must balance. If you need help in figuring out how a transaction affects particular accounts, then try diagramming it out using "T" accounts as a picture in these situations is really worth a thousand words! How are your examples alike? How do they differ? Why do they differ?

Renee,
Here is the assignment, I am a bit rusty on my accounting, so hopefully I haven't forgotten anything. Let me know if I need to add anything else for you. I will be on the road back to the house, will check JA when I get in. Thanks again for allowing me and JA to help with your assignment. Dee

Begin with a transaction and end with what is called “closing of the books” is a process, accounting. A series of activities are repeated during a reporting period and it is often referred to as an accounting cycle. This cycle will include these steps:
1.     Transactions
2.     Classification of the transaction – journalizing
3.     Recording data in the ledger – posting
4.     Preparing financial statements
5.     Closing accounts
To begin the process of posting there are two sides to every transaction. Each transaction has a debit and a credit that will need to be posted in the ledger and in the journal. For accurate recording keeping, there will need to be two posting or written transactions kept. For each category there will be a two line posting that will need to be completed. For example, in retail, merchandise is purchased for a future payment, a liability is created. The journal entry will be recorded as an increase in the merchandise account, a debit and an increase in the liability account, a credit. The merchandise account is being increased with goods and must be debited. Whereas the liability account, which is where the company owes for the goods is also increased and needs to be credited.
Now that we have touched on classification of the transactions, we will need to continue to the next step, which is recording in the ledger or posting the transaction. Each account or category will have its own page in the ledger. The ledger will have the debits, which are recorded on the left side, and the credits recorded on the right side for that account. The general ledger for each account will show the balance of that account, the net credit or debit can be determined from this page. If that account has more information that is needed to be kept, there will a subsidiary ledger with those details. For an example of information that will need to go into a subsidiary ledger would be, wages paid to an employee, equipment owned – each piece would have its own ledger or creditors that are owed.
Once all posting has been completed to the general ledger a determination of the trail balance is needed. This is where the listing of all accounts and the sum of the debits and the sum of the credits are equal. They should equal because you have posted two entries for each transaction, and those two entries one should have been a debit and the other should have been a credit.
The accountant will now need to prepare adjustments that have already occurred but have to be recorded. Some of those adjustments could be interest earned but not received, wages incurred but not paid, expired insurance premium that is prepaid, depreciation, inventory or receivable.

It is Due 7/4/09

 

Many high-technology companies, like Nortel Networks, Micron Technology and JDS Uniphase, have written down massive amounts of their inventory. For example, Nortel Networks revalued some of its inventory parts at $0, though the inventory initially cost Nortel $650 million.

Companies are required to report whether they write off the cost value (or book value) or their inventory even if they do not dispose of the inventory. Later on, they may sell this inventory but are not required to report the sale for cash of previously "worthless" inventory. The effect may be that in future years, when the inventory is sold, profits are overstated.

Also in the article, JDS Uniphase said it will write off $250 million of its inventory but promised to disclose any future sale. On the other hand, Micron Technology, which wrote down $260 million, won't disclose any future sale (Krantz, 2001). Should the Securities and Exchange Commission do anything? Why?

Presentation: Accounting for the Merchandising Business

A merchandising entity earns its revenue by selling products called merchandise inventory, or simply inventory. This unit demonstrates the central role of inventory in a business that sells merchandise. Inventory includes all goods that the company owns and expects to sell in the normal course of operations.

The major revenue of a merchandising business is sales revenue, or simply sales. The major expense is cost of goods sold. Net sales minus cost of goods sold is the gross profit, or gross margin. This amount measures the business's success or failure in selling its products at a higher price than it paid for them.

The merchandiser's major asset is inventory. In a merchandising entity, the accounting cycle is from cash to inventory as the inventory is purchased for resale, and back to cash as the inventory is sold. The invoice is the business document generated by a purchase or sale transaction. Most merchandising entities allow customers to return unsuitable merchandise, as well as offer discounts for early payment. They grant allowances for damaged goods that the buyer chooses to keep. Returns and Allowances and Discounts are contra accounts to Sales Revenue.

The end-of-period adjusting and closing process of a merchandising business is similar to that of a service business. If a work sheet is used, the trial balance is entered, and the work sheet is completed to determine net income or net loss. The work sheet provides the data for journalizing the adjusting and closing entries and for preparing the financial statements. In addition, a merchandiser adjusts inventory for theft losses, damage, and accounting errors.

The income statement may appear in single-step or multi-step format. A single-step income statement has only two sections-one for revenues, and the other for expenses-and a single income amount for net income. A multi-step income statement has subtotals for gross profit and income from operations. Both formats are widely used.

Merchandise inventory is the most important asset to a merchandising business because it captures the essence of the entity. To manage the firm, owners and managers focus on the best way to sell inventory. Two key decision aids for a merchandiser are the gross profit percentage (which is gross margin/net sales revenue), and the rate of inventory turnover (which is cost of goods sold/average inventory). Increases in these measures usually signal an increase in profits.

The perpetual inventory accounting system that we have illustrated is designed to produce up-to-date records of inventory and cost of goods sold. Cost of goods sold is the cost of the inventory that the business has sold. It is the largest single expense of most merchandising businesses. Cost of goods sold is the sum of the cost of goods sold amounts recorded during the period. In a periodic inventory system, Cost of goods sold = Beginning inventory + Purchases + Freight in - Ending inventory.

    Expert:  Instructor Dee replied 5 years ago.
    Renee, Here is your answer. Let me know if you need any more to this. Dee

    The major revenue for these businesses is sales. Their profits or losses are measured by their inventory. Allowing write-offs in their inventory and not reporting the sales later obscures the botXXXXX XXXXXne of profits.

    Securities and Exchange Commission’s should step in and regulate how inventory that is not being sold or used in the company, however, is owned can be discounted without losing all the value. This will allow future profits to be realized and it does not rely on the company to disclose any future sales of inventory they reported as worthless or discontinued.

    Explain which moral philosophy you feel is best suited for making business decisions and why.

     

    This is my answer:

    The moral philosophy best suited for business is making decisions is an Utilitariarianism. Which is a Principle of Utilitarianism focuses that is an act that produces the largest ratio of good and evil for all. Therefore, it is a guide for business people in a dilemma ethical. Now by using this theory, "the managers" involved in business decision making can choose the right course of action which would provides a good situation for everyone with the maximum benefits and loses. Utilitarianism in a way does cost for each situation "and" it helps in choosing the right course of action which will provides the least amount of harm as compared to other alternatives.

     

    Since it is of high importance in today's working competitive business environment to make all the stakeholder in the organization satisfied, the utilitarianism is a moral philosophy which is aims to create best possible win-win situation for everybody in the organization.

    here is The Presentation: Morality Introduction

     

    Society perceives that ethics and corporate responsibility are an integral part of acceptable business practice. Society no longer buries it head to secrecy and decisions that make a few wealthy but hurt many. Investors want to see what the company is up to. A former American Stock Exchange chief was noted to say during an interview that top corporate executives must set an appropriate ethical tone at their companies in order to rebuild public trust in their firms and their shares.

    This unit defines morality and discusses how morality applies to business ethics. There are many different moral philosophies that help explain how and why people make different moral decisions when faced with the same dilemma.


    Ethical Theory and Business Practice


    Why so much interest in ethics today? In part, the public's interest in corporate scandals has made universities sit up and take notice. More and more schools are offering ethics courses, encouraging students to apply ethics to their everyday lives and in all aspects of their lives. Students are finding it more relevant due to a recent rash of financial corporate scandals they can relate to. They are seeing and experiencing for themselves that crossing the line to unethical and illegal behavior hurts. Morality refers to the principles or rules of moral conduct and is concerned with the social practices defining right and wrong. Ethical theory and moral philosophies provide guidelines for justification of right or wrong actions when settling human conflict. No one moral philosophy is accepted by everyone. People assess situations based on their own moral beliefs.

    There are several theories that study moral behavior, such as the descriptive approach, cultural relativism, utilitarian theories, Kant's respect-for-persons principle, common morality theories, and feminist theories, to name a few.

    When dealing with ethical dilemmas, there is no one correct answer. What one person sees as morally correct will be different for another person. These differences are based upon which philosophies people subscribe to and peoples' individual values and beliefs.

    The Purpose of the Corporation


    Why do corporations exist? Your first response is probably to make money. That's true, but that's not the only reason. Corporations provide products and services to consumers, or businesses, maybe other countries. Is this enough? Many say no. A corporation has a social responsibility to its stakeholders: employees, stockholders, employees, customers, the community, the environment, overseas stakeholders, and women and minorities.

    Companies are finding ways to integrate the needs of the corporations with those of its stakeholders. Corporations are able to see a link between corporate social responsibility and profitability through their interaction with their stakeholders, as well as managing the environment around them (for example, reducing the energy inputs, reducing toxic dispersion, and so forth). Corporations can no longer work solely for stockholders. They are inextricably linked to the social, ecological, and human fabric, responsible to all stakeholders in varying degrees. When a corporation is not healthy, it impacts other parts of society, just as the health of one part of the human body can affect the overall health of one's body. Companies with good social and environmental records perform better in the long run than those that do not behave responsibly.

    The Ethics of Business: Accountability, Responsibility, and Risk

    What do accountability, responsibility, and risk have to do with ethics in business? Everything. In today's transparent society, there is no place for dishonesty, arrogance, or greed in the executive ranks of a corporation or its board. Increased media exposure and the speed of information exchange will ensure that the work of directors is scrutinized far greater than ever before.

    Due to greater media and public scrutiny, and the accountability and legal liability inherent in executive roles, many qualified individuals are reluctant to take on the responsibility of being a director. Boards are generally comprised of retired executives who were compensated very well by their organizations. Directors on a board are not compensated so generously, however. It is harder today, therefore, to get qualified individuals to oversee the operations of a corporation when the compensation is low and the risk to them, both personally and professionally, is high. When an individual does accept a position as a director and something within the corporation goes amiss, the excuse that the director was not aware of unethical actions by the corporation is no longer acceptable.

    In a speech given by United States Treasury Secretary Paul H. O'Neill to the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, Mr. O'Neill addressed the future leaders and future business leaders about the challenges they face. Regarding today's environment, he stated, "...Nothing is what it seemed-earnings statements, revenue projection, or the boundless, bump-less, New Economy." He pointed to the wild ride of the corporations of late that has caused this phenomenon.

    In Mr. O'Neill's opinion as to why corporate leaders have fallen, he had this to say, "...I think they strayed from their values in the anything-goes 90s, and by the time they realized how far they had strayed-after all, in their minds, everyone else was doing it, or would if they could-it was too late. Like frogs in boiling water, they didn't feel the heat until they were cooked. There was nothing special about these people, except their hubris (pronounced "hyoo-briss"). They abandoned any pretense of moral direction to follow each dollar down its path, and figured they'd return to the main road before anyone noticed they were gone. But after the bubble popped, there was nowhere to hide..." Mr. O'Neill pointed out that while continuing with the accomplishments in the 90s-growth, productivity, and innovation-we need to actively work to make a new era of personal responsibility and public integrity.

    In his conclusion, Mr. O'Neill stated, "In my view, the answer is simple: honest, accountable leadership. With leadership, everything is possible; without it, nothing is possible... Leaders must stand up and set an example not just for their employees, but for the general public as well. Honesty in business is the new patriotism. There is nothing better business leaders can do for this country right now than restore faith in the system that has made it great."

    What do scenarios like corporate financial collapse, environmental disasters, layoffs, and consumer law suits all have in common? These actions may not have to happen at all if corporations managed risk to their stakeholders and stockholders. Risk management is more important today than ever before. What's the answer? Effective corporate governance standards.

    According to XXXXX XXXXX, president of the Winnipeg Chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors and director of corporate audit services at Winnipeg-based Agricore United, there are four pillars that will prevent corporate problems. The four pillars are: the board of directors, management, internal auditors, and external auditors. Brown continues, "...to be effective, each of these four must operate independently. When they don't, massive problems can occur."

    Presentation: Rights and Obligations of Employers and Employees
    Introduction

    Statutes and their regulations and common law determine the rights and obligations of employers and employees to each other and may differ from state to state. Employers and employees have an "employment relationship" that is sometimes referred to as a contract of service.

    Rights and Obligations of Employers and Employees

    An obligation that employers are beginning to recognize as a new role is establishing work/life balance, so as to prevent burnout by their employees. Companies are beginning to reshape their cultures to bring a better balance to the workplace. The greater the balance, the greater the productivity. Work/life conditions are not the only obligations of employers, however. Federal and state laws have long required employers to make "reasonable accommodations" for persons with disabilities. In 1990 Congress passed legislation called "Americans with Disabilities Act" to level the playing field for persons with disabilities. California passed a law on January 1, 2001, however, which redefines the definition of disabled, resulting in the inclusion of all types of physical and mental conditions. This new legislation is expected to increase litigation and costs for all California employers.

    Under Section 7 of the National Labor Act, employees have the right to organize a union and collectively bargain with their employers. Employees' rights and obligations regarding union activities are as follows:

    • The right to work as a team to organize, join and support a union.
    • The right to sign a union card and to solicit fellow employees to sign a union card.
    • The right to attend union meetings and wear union insignia.
    • The right to discuss the union with fellow workers and distribute union literature.

    Employers' obligations to union workers are to:

    • Reinstate, without loss of seniority and with back pay plus 6 percent interest, any employee who has been improperly discharged, suspended or demoted for supporting a union.
    • Bargain with a union as the exclusive representative of all the employees who are members of the union, once the union is selected by a majority of employees.

    Hope this help....Do you still have my assingment from unit 1 ?

    I supported drug screening tests, I beleive the the company you work for should have the right to screen test the employee. Because I would not want to be run a machine with someone who has been drinking at lunch time or hung over from the nite before and the same with drug users. Thing can happen like a person could get hurt or even die.

    Presentation: Rights and Obligations of Employers and Employees
    Introduction

    Statutes and their regulations and common law determine the rights and obligations of employers and employees to each other and may differ from state to state. Employers and employees have an "employment relationship" that is sometimes referred to as a contract of service.

    Rights and Obligations of Employers and Employees

    An obligation that employers are beginning to recognize as a new role is establishing work/life balance, so as to prevent burnout by their employees. Companies are beginning to reshape their cultures to bring a better balance to the workplace. The greater the balance, the greater the productivity. Work/life conditions are not the only obligations of employers, however. Federal and state laws have long required employers to make "reasonable accommodations" for persons with disabilities. In 1990 Congress passed legislation called "Americans with Disabilities Act" to level the playing field for persons with disabilities. California passed a law on January 1, 2001, however, which redefines the definition of disabled, resulting in the inclusion of all types of physical and mental conditions. This new legislation is expected to increase litigation and costs for all California employers.

    Under Section 7 of the National Labor Act, employees have the right to organize a union and collectively bargain with their employers. Employees' rights and obligations regarding union activities are as follows:

    • The right to work as a team to organize, join and support a union.
    • The right to sign a union card and to solicit fellow employees to sign a union card.
    • The right to attend union meetings and wear union insignia.
    • The right to discuss the union with fellow workers and distribute union literature.

    Employers' obligations to union workers are to:

    • Reinstate, without loss of seniority and with back pay plus 6 percent interest, any employee who has been improperly discharged, suspended or demoted for supporting a union.
    • Bargain with a union as the exclusive representative of all the employees who are members of the union, once the union is selected by a majority of employees.

    Questions and Answers
    Question #1
    Should employers be allowed to drug-test employees?

    In 1995 The Institute for a Drug-Free Workplace of Washington, D.C. commissioned The Gallup Organization of Princeton, New Jersey to conduct a survey. The survey objectives were to determine attitudes about drugs in the workplace, drug testing, and experiences with drugs. Those surveyed worked full time outside of the home. When asked about drug testing, the majority of those surveyed supported drug screening tests for all occupations. However, the respondents put greater emphasis on testing those employees who are responsible for many people, such as airline pilots, school bus drivers, or doctors (Employers and Employees, 2000).

    Blue Cross & Blue Shield offers a new substance abuse program called SAMI (Substance Abuse Management, Inc.) to its employees that offer a number of benefits. They hope to realize, as other companies have, reductions in workers' compensation costs, lost productivity, employee turnover, and other related issues related to drug and alcohol. A part of their program includes random test selection. SAMI processes over two million drug test per year for its clients (What American, n.d.).

    Question #2
    What is discriminatory genetic screening?

    In 1972 scientists first isolated the DNA segment from a virus and combined it with bacterial DNA, which was the beginning of genetic engineering. Since then, the field of biotechnology has flourished exponentially. As scientists find out more about the human DNA and genes, there is substantial concern that organizations will want to screen potential employees for possible genetic flaws. People with genetic flaws may be denied life insurance, health insurance, and access to schooling or to jobs.

    It is not unfathomable that, as costs for tests decline and health care responsibilities are shifted from public sector to private sector, private insurers may use risk rating as a method for providing health insurance to those persons who are predisposed to a serious disease. This would seriously undermine the universal provision of health care.

    Question #3
    What is whistle-blowing and why is it acceptable?

    Whistle blowing is when an employee knows that the company he or she is working for is engaged in activities that cause unnecessary harm, violate human rights, are illegal, are counter to the defined purpose of the entity, or are otherwise immoral, and notifies the public or government agency of these activities (Duska, 1998). Business ethicists claim that employees have some obligation to the company or employer, but when the company violates ethical and/or legal constraints, loyalty of the employee has been compromised.

    Whistle blowing and loyalty are competing values or ethical dilemmas. Loyalty is seen as a good thing while whistle blowing is not. Whistle blowers are known as "rats, finks, tattletales, snitches, informants, and the like". However, loyalty, in extreme cases, can cause disasters, such as the Columbine shootings, where peer pressure kept students from sharing their concerns with authorities. Employees have an obligation to their employees to serve the company's legitimate and legal interests as well as reporting actions of employees that act against the public good (Navran, n.d.) . Attitudes toward whistle blowing are changing. The public recognizes that there is a need to stop wrong-doing and this is different from being a "snitch" (Bentley, 2002).

    Discrimination

    Discrimination falls into a number of categories: race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and age. According to the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division, it recommends the following to avoid employment discrimination especially after September 11:

    • Treat all people the same when announcing a job, taking applications, offering a job, verifying employment eligibility, hiring, and firing.
    • Allow new hires, both citizens and non-citizens, the opportunity to present their choice of documents to complete the INS Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9.
    • Do not request new hires to present documents beyond what is required to complete the Form I-9. All job applicants can present any combination of acceptable documents.
    • Avoid "citizen only" or "green card only" hiring policies. Unless required by federal, state or local law or by government contract, such policies are illegal.
