Chapter 1 Ethical Reasoning: Implications for Accounting

Discussion Questions 1. Select one of the world’s religions and give a concrete example of how the Golden Rule applies in that religion.
"Every religion emphasizes human improvement, love, respect for others, sharing other people's suffering. On these lines every religion had more or less the same viewpoint and the same goal." The Dalai Lama

Students may use the Internet as resource when researching the use of the Golden Rule in different religions. At websites such as www.religioustolerance.org/reciproc.htm and www.scarboromissions.ca, the comparisons of world religions are made. The students can compare the provided information with their personal views on the Golden Rule. From the Baha’I Faith, “Lay not on any soul a load that you would not wish to be laid upon you, and desire not for anyone the things you would not desire for yourself.” Baha’u’llah in Gleaning (from www.scarboromissions.ca/Golden_rule/sacred_texts.php, February 7, 2010). From www.religioustolerance.org/reciproc.htm (February 7, 2010), Black Elk of Native American Spiritually is quoted “All things are our relatives; what we do to everything, we do to ourselves. All is really One.” Plato also stated, “May I do to others as I would that they should do unto me.” Many students may remember being reasoned with by a parent or teacher on such lines of thinking.

Students may remark that the appeal for many charities, particularly those who feed and clothe the less fortunate and those who provide disasters relief, are often based upon a form of the Golden Rule.

Tree

...When Trees start out in the wild, their life begins in an area where that type of tree is adapted to and tolerant of the conditions of that particular site. As the trees mature, the site conditions may change. People may modify the land by building houses or office buildings. The building of these structures most times take away an assortment of brush and small plants, thus altering the natural landscape.. Some trees are tolerant of these man made conditions like Oaks and Elms. The types that are not tolerant and cannot adapt only have one choice, and that is too die. (9) Another situation that may occur is the planting of young trees in an urban site. At this young age, it allows its self to become more tolerant to an environment. But, sometimes this tolerance level is not taken into consideration. Trees may be picked just because of their color or size only. This may not be the best situation, and the tree usually dies. In that case, there will be another chance to put a more tolerant tree in that area. The trees that do survive in this condition are in so much shock after being taken out of its tolerant environment, and being put in a none tolerant environment, that their limits are being pushed to the edge. When this happens, the result will be poor performance, and a non-attractive tree. These trees that are not at their peak condition are more prone to contract diseases and attract unwanted visiting insects. The trees that have problems with diseases and insects......

...a hill in the woods. They were discussing their hopes and dreams when the first tree said, "Someday I hope to be a treasure chest. I could be filled with gold, silver and precious gems. I could be decorated with intricate carving and everyone would see the beauity". The second tree said, "Someday I will be a mighty ship. I will take Kings and Queens across the waters and sail to the corners of the world. Everyone will feel safe in me because of the strength of my hull". Finally, the third tree said, "I want to grow to be the tallest and straightest tree in the forest. People will see me on top of the hill and look up to my branches, and think of the heavens and God and how close to them I am reaching. I will be the greatest tree of all time and people will always remember me". After a few years of praying that their dreams would come true, a group of woodsmen came upon the trees. When one came to the first tree he said, "This looks like s strong tree, I think I should be able to sell the wood to a carpenter".... and he began cutting it down. The tree was happy. because he knew that the carpenter would make him into a treasure chest. At the second tree a woodsman said, "This looks like a strong tree, I should be able to sell it to the shipyard." The second tree was happy because he knew he was on his way to becoming a mighty ship. When the woodsmen came upon the third tree, the tree was frigtened because he knew that if they cut him down his dreams would not......

Decision Tree

...Decision Trees The Decision Tree module in Excel OM (and in POM for Windows) acts differently than all other modules because rather than creating a table of data it creates a graphical tree. We will use Example 3 in Chapter A5 from Heizer & Render’s Operations Management textbook for our example. After selecting the Decision Tree Module the screen will appear as in Figure 1 below. Figure 1: The Initial Decision Tree Screen Notice the Decision Tree Creation Window on the right. This is used to perform all of the work of constructing the tree. The initial screen has 1 starting node (Node 1) which can be seen in cell A6. The first step is to add branches from this node. The default setting is to Add 2 Decision branches. The type of branch is selected by the choice of “Add” buttons that is selected and the number of branches is selected by the textbox/scrollbar combination. For this example, there are three options – Purchase CAD, Hire Engineers or Do Nothing. Therefore we will change the number of branches to 3 and click on the “Add Decisions” button. This yields the screen as displayed in Figure 2. Decision Trees.doc Page 1 of 7 Figure 2: The First Three Branches At this point the data can be entered into the shaded green cells. For decision branches, the data consists of the name of the branch and possibly a profit or cost. If the branch is at the end of the tree then the profit gets entered. If the branch is not at the end then any intermediate profits or......

Forbidden Tree

...Forbidden Tree Callie Franklin HU300 Forbidden Tree As a child, bedtime was the best time of day. Mommy and daddy would look on the bookshelf and find the best exciting stories ever. The majority were old biblical stories that passes from generation to generation. Adam and Eve was the most popular story read to me quite often, a great story. An awesome story line that describes a relationship of betrayal between man, God, and the consequences of disobedience. Adam and Eve contains a countermyth with a countersymbol of the Garden (Janaro, Altshuler, 2011, pg. 47). This story is a great way to help understand whatever is asked of us to do from God or an authority figure, may be for our own good. And it can teach us how to make better choices in life. In The Art of Being Human: The Humanities as a Technique for living, it states that many myth scholars believe that the archetype of the Golden Age had its origins in the biblical account of the Garden, the earthly paradise Adam and Eve called home until they were cast out for eating the forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge (Janaro, Altshuler, 2011, pg. 47). Adam and Eve is a great story that every child should read about. In the beginning God created the heaven, earth, and man. God created Adam and then created Eve from one of Adam’s ribs. They both were in the Garden of Eden and had everything they wanted. But God told them they could eat from any tree they wanted, but not the tree in the middle of the garden....

To use these methods, you need (a) a model of your decision problem under uncertainty with payoffs and probabilities and (b) a willingness to summarize a payoff distribution (payoffs with associated probabilities) using expected value. The methods can be modified to use certain equivalents for a decision maker who is not risk neutral. 224 Chapter 19 Value of Information in Decision Trees Expected Value of Perfect Information, Reordered Tree Figure 19.1 Structure, Cash Flows, Endpoint Values, and Probabilities 0.5 High Sales $400,000 $700,000 0.3 Medium Sales $100,000 -$300,000 $400,000 0.2 Low Sales 1 $100,000 -$200,000 Introduce Product Don't Introduce $0 $0 Figure 19.2 Rollback Expected Values 0.5 High Sales $400,000 Introduce Product $190,000 0.3 Medium Sales $100,000 0.2 Low Sales 1 $190,000......

The Backyard Tree

...This tree that I want to write about stands proud n tall in the garden in the backyard and is visible from my kitchen window. It has been my constant companion since the time we rented this beautiful house, here in Auckland, almost six months back. When we came here it was the beginning of summers, and this tree was lush green and its spiky fruits, the size of small plums, hung in twos, suspended by a thin vein, looking like small chandeliers, shyly peeping from behind the curtain of leaves. It was a sight to behold, as many birds seem to move in and out of it making the sweetest music as they went about their day. It gave me a lot of pleasure to watch it and suddenly I would not feel lonely and so far away from home. As months went by, I heard autumn was fast approaching and somewhere that made me sad. I somehow could not bear the thought of seeing my companion all barren, but I could not have been more wrong. As autumn approached, the tree transformed into a golden yellow bouquet, its fruits too took on a golden hue as I watched mesmerized. All my sadness put to rest, making me realize that the statement,' a thing of beauty is a joy forever', holds so much water. It did not stop at that. It slowly changed into a riot of fiery red and orange, almost looking ablaze, and then as days passed, one by one it started shedding its leaves. They lie there, at its feet, in a heap. I could not bring myself to sweep them away, as they lie huddled together in this cold and rainy......

Maple Tree

...The Maple Tree Druid horoscope for Maple (The DailyHoroscope by Comitic) Druid horscope for Maple. The Maple is known as the luckiest of trees. It embodies a happy spirit because it represents very desirable qualities, such as success, wealth, and general prosperity. This is a very positive and constructive sign. It is only natural, then, that Maple people are always pleasant to be around because they are cheerful, joyful, and active. These dynamic people are quite adventurous and always seek out excitement. Even when a Maple Tree person isn't the most gorgeous one in the room, he or she can easily compensate for it with an outrageous, interesting, and outstanding personality. Maples are known to be offbeat, extravagant, and even a bit bizarre. They are always aware of all the new trends, social customs, and the most recent discoveries in the world around them. On any given day they are involved or considering any number of interesting and exciting projects. However, they rarely implement any of their daring ideas. Maples prefer to watch others achieve their goals. Maple people have irrepressible energy; they are simply restless! They are interested in too many things at once. Sometimes Maples feel that if they stop even for a moment, they will miss out on something very important. Despite their daring personalities, Maple people are not extremely courageous. The only reason they decides to take a risk is because Maples have a very low sense of danger. ...

...HKU774 CATHY ENZ ALI FARHOOMAND BANYAN TREE: SUSTAINABILITY OF A BRAND DURING RAPID GLOBAL EXPANSION Within the next five years, if we play our expansion card right and we manage our growth properly, we have a reasonable, credible opportunity to become one of the top two or three dominant players in a global space which is very niche but nevertheless very global. - K.P. Ho, CEO of Banyan Tree Holdings Limited1 On 14 August 2006, exactly two months after its initial public offering (“IPO”), Banyan Tree Holdings Limited announced second-quarter results for the period ending on 30 June. Revenue had more than doubled to S$71.42 million, largely due to recovery following the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The company felt that this was only the beginning, however, and had earmarked part of the IPO proceeds to finance an ambitious expansion plan. At the core of its business development plan was a proposal to open 21 new resorts3 over four years that would span non-Asian territories from Greece to Mexico. Banyan Tree CEO Ho Kwon Ping’s vision was to “string a necklace [of Banyan Tree properties] around the world”. The Asian Financial Crisis of 1997, the SARS crisis of 2003 and the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 had taken their toll on the travel and tourism industry [see Exhibit 1]. Although recovery was on the horizon, Ho understood the need to diversify risks across geographical regions and the IPO provided the finances to venture out of familiar territory.......

A number of variants of solar trees have been conceived, not all of them realized in installations. Locations have included roadways, public areas in cities, schools and universities, office buildings, science museums, and more. Recently, designers and manufacturers have introduced solar trees as products, designed to deliver the benefits of solar trees in a repeatable way to more places. Examples include Ross Lovegrove’s solar tree which incorporated seating, lighting, and circular groupings of photovoltaic cells, Envision Solar solar parking canopy specifically trademarked Solar Tree, and Spotlight Solar’s line of architectural structures. Solar tree in Gleisdorf, Austria The Solar Tree blends art and solar energy technology in a sculptural expression. Solar trees are both artistic and functional clean energy machines. The term Solar Tree has been used to describe a variety of structures incorporating solar energy technology on a single pillar (like a tree trunk), and has become a......
