The parking area was well lit with ample parking spaces available even though it was a Saturday night around 9:00 p.m. Upon entering, you are in front of the greeter’s desk where you are met with a friendly greeter with a beautiful smile. [Reword to make sentence flow better] You can smell the peanuts and see the floor covered with peanut hulls. You have a choice of sitting at a table, a booth or sitting at the bar. Logan’s Roadhouse is filled with the mixed aromas of menu choices being prepared. You are escorted to the seating area you have chosen.
However, to our surprise the entrees arrived before appetizers and I just had a gut feeling that everything would be downhill from here on and believe me it The correct side orders were not with the correct main dish, everyone had ordered steaks; but not the same kind of steak nor were they to be cooked to the same degree. The worst problem was with my mothers’ order, which was a T-bone steak to be cooked well-done (no one else ordered a T-bone) [unnecessary/irrelevant] and her order came back rare. As the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, you should have seen my mother’s facial expression when she inserted her knife into her steak and blood oozed out; she was literally seething with fury and ready to walk out and E-mail the corporate office that night. The waitress was very apologetic and my mother was convinced to send the order back. The steak was returned charred on the outside and” medium rare” on the inside. I personally went to complain to the manager on duty, he informed me that he would personally prepare my mother’s meal and bring her meal to her. After waiting and waiting with no meal the waitress was summoned to the table, she stated, “I thought the manager took care of it. The manager was not to be found when I went up front. While observing the tables and booths in our seating area…...

The House of Lords

...“As the House of Lords has existed for about six centuries without reform, some alterations have become necessary in order to bring it into conformity with the changed institutions by which it is surrounded.” – Lord Rosebery, 1884.1 Since Lord Rosebery’s well-known speech there has been much debate about changes in the composition of the House of Lords. Major reforms included the Life Peerages Act 1958 and later the House of Lords Act 1999, which reduced the hereditary members to 92.2 Nevertheless, constitutional experts such as Rodney Brazier argue that the House of Lords continues to be “unelected, unrepresentative and unaccountable.”3 The Coalition Government is therefore working on another reform bill to provide for a wholly or largely elected second chamber. This essay will argue that such a drastic change from a largely appointed to an elected system is too unrealistic to be implemented. Instead, the Government should seek to abolish Prime Ministerial patronage as well as the remaining hereditary members and adopt an independent Appointments Commission that appoints all the members of the upper chamber. To arrive at this conclusion, we will need to analyse which selection method best retains the Lords’ expertise, as well as their independence and representativeness. Then, a discussion follows whether the Lords necessarily ought to be democratically elected to provide a legitimate chamber. Lastly, the possibility of a mixed chamber will be considered. The House of......

Choice House

...Memo – Choice House To: Joan Tanner and Finance Committee I have investigated the matters brought to my attention by the Board of Directors Finance Committee and have come to the following conclusions with the information gathered. 1. Were the ED’s salary and benefits in line for EDs with other nonprofits similar to Choice House? As Choice House belongs to a consortium of nonprofits, I contacted the consortium to gain some clarification on the questions of salary and benefits for the ED. I was informed that the salary of $70k and benefits of $7k were indeed comparable to salaries and benefits of other EDs in the area. I believe we are paying the ED a very reasonable salary with the understanding that Beth was hired because of her previous track record and the expectation that she would be able to produce similar results for Choice House. 2. Why was the office supplies line $7,500 over budget? Who was using the supplies and for what projects? It should be noted that Choice House has submitted five grants in the fourth quarter, two of which were recommended by the board. None of the five grants have yet been approved. If any of these grants were to go through it would more than make up for the shortage in budgetary funds. Unfortunately it will be a few more months before Choice House will hear anything about these grants. Most of the expenses this quarter were due to publicity brochures and small gift items that the ED requested for her trip to the...

Roper, Logan & Tierney

...NM1704: Applying a model of nursing roper, logan and tierney model This essay explores the preoperative care provided to one patient in a London hospital during one shift. This care was influenced by the holistic perspective to health. Arsing from the Greek for ‘whole’ this acknowledges physiological, psychological and social factors impacting the patient’s condition. (McFerran & Martin, 2008) It seeks to offer treatment inclusive of these factors rather than treating physical symptoms of a diagnosed disease in isolation. This essay will examine this within a Model of Nursing used in my clinical placement area - the Roper, Logan and Tierney model. The identities of both hospital and patient have been altered to maintain confidentiality and comply with the NMC Code of Conduct. (Council, 2008) During my placement I worked on a coronary care unit where I cared for a patient herein called Peter, a 60 year old White British male. Peter was single, lived alone and unemployed. He had a history of low mood and was admitted to a neighbouring hospital suffering symptoms of acute alcohol withdrawal syndrome (acute confusion, delusions and tremors). This arises when an individual reduces or stops alcohol consumption after prolonged periods of excessive alcohol intake. This can lead to tolerance, physical dependence and physical disturbances upon withdrawal due to the central nervous system reacting in a hyper-excitable state. (About.com, 2010) He was transferred to my......

...noted that in the mid ‘90s, the main administrator of government-subsidized housing finance programs, the National Home Mortgage Finance Corporation or NHMFC, was considered technically insolvent and irreversibly illiquid. “The corporation incurred net losses of P64 million in 1993, which increased six-fold by end of 1995 to P340 million. The fiscal impact of these losses was huge,” Ballesteros said. Problems with government housing finance persist, with the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) putting on hold its housing loan program in 2011 due to total unpaid loans of P11 billion for 17,000 house-and-lot packages nationwide. It had been providing housing loans since 1954, previously to GSIS members only but later began extending loans to developers. The institution eventually went into real estate development, buying land and building houses and selling these as house-and-lot packages. GSIS did not have adequate manpower to support its various financing activities, however, which resulted in its failure to collect payments. As of mid-2014, GSIS reported that its housing loan remedial and restructuring program had only restructured about P1.5 billion worth of accounts covering 3,000 borrowers. Ballesteros said that, moving forward, more effective institutional and policy changes have to be made. Subsidy interventions in the financial system, for instance, should be focused on low- to middle-income households, or those who are able to fulfill obligations......

Confidentiality and Alton Logan

...Legal Ethics Instructor: Brent Halbleib Assignment: Unit 3 Confidentiality and Attorney/Client Privilege Name: Donna Marie Brown Date: July 26, 2015 Possible Points: 100 Confidentiality and Attorney- Client Privilege Donna Marie Brown Kaplan University Confidentiality and the Alton Logan Case “Sometimes trying to make wrongful conviction right, creates an ethical tension for civil and criminal attorneys. With any kind of practice, but mostly with criminal defense, a lawyer may learn from a client that they committed a crime ascribed to someone else. When an innocent person is faced with conviction, imprisonment, or in some cases, the death penalty, and the attorney is mindful of the injustice occurring to a third party, the lawyer is still bound by the rules of confidentiality to honor their commitment to their client.” (Strutin, 2015) And this begins the case with Mr. Alton Logan. In 1982, Alton Logan was convicted of killing a security guard at a Chicago-area McDonalds. Even though the testimony that Logan was at home when the murder happened, the jury still found him guilty of first degree murder And to top it off, the two attorneys, Dale Coventry and Jamie Kunz, knew Logan was innocent. And how did this knowledge come about? Andrew Wilson, the attorneys’ client, admitted to the murder. The two attorneys who were representing Wilson, for killing two policemen, was told by Wilson that he was also guilty of killing the security guard at McDonalds. But......

...OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT PROFESSOR MOHAMMAD NIKOOFAL “THE DELAYS AT LOGAN AIRPORT” Ana Guimarães 150111501 Leonor Lima Raposo 150113193 David Antunes 150113238 Matilde Meyrelles Do Souto Pedro Godinho 150112201 Logan Airport Logan Airport is an international airport located in Boston, United States. It has three runways in operation during good weather but only two of them are used for arrivals. The airport’s concern is to have a strategy that reduces delay times and associated costs. In our opinion, the strategy will include peak-period pricing in order to reduce the late times in the short-run. The impact of Peak Period Pricing on Delay Times and Costs During peak hours the arrival rate is between 44.5 and a little over 60 planes per hour. This analysis reflects the delay times and costs associated with each peak hour arrival rate for three plane types – Turboprop airplane, Conventional jets e Regional jets – in order to compare them. The total delay time for an arrival rate (λ) for 50 planes per hour is 6.55 minutes (0.109 hours) but when the arrival rate increases by 5 planes per hour, the delay is 12.52 minutes (0.209 hours) and the delay time is more than 1 hour (60.5 minutes) when the arrival rate increases to 59 planes per hour. These delays imply extra costs. These costs are the sum the passenger time cost and the delay time cost of the plane. | 50 planes/h | 55 planes/h | 59 planes/h | Turboprop Airplane | 71,26636363 | 136,3356522 |......

...their children; parents were no longer willing to buy $300 premium shoes for their kids as they did in previous years. Mr. Gorr concurred and mentioned something about “not sparing the rod.” In order to compensate for decreased sales, the Company has raised prices by about 10% with respect to product costs. Mr. Lancaster lamented that the quality of Apollo products was too high—the shoes were just not wearing out fast enough. Mr. Lancaster also stated that because of the strength of current product lines and as a cost-cutting measure, he decided to stop research and development efforts on the Phoneshoe, thereby eliminating Research and Development expense for the current year. The development lab will be modified in 2012 to house a personal gym for corporate executives. Scientists working in the lab have been reassigned to maintenance duties elsewhere in the company. The Company has also saved postage and telephone expense through increased use of e-mail. In other business, the board authorized the write-off of one account receivable for $8,810.13 for an account that had been outstanding for over a year. Mr. Lancaster noted that he did not anticipate any other write-offs during the year, or that “heads would roll!” Mr. Unum moved that Apollo advance $1,000,000 to Mr. Lancaster’s personal secretary as a personal loan to cover personal legal expenses related to her previous employer.

...OM Logan Airport Assignment a) Delays: 50: 6.55 minutes 55: 12.52 minutes 59: 60.5 minutes Costs: Assuming we use two runways, and that by total cost they mean total cost for all the planes arriving. For arrival rate of 50: 15 seat plane: 352* 6.55/60+30.9*6.55/60*(15*0.65)*50=3565.79 50 seat plane: 672* 6.55/60+30.9*6.55/60*(50*0.65)*50=5554.89 150 seat plane 1590*6.55/60+30.9*6.55/60*(150*0.65)*50= 16618.17 For the arrival rate of 55: 15 seat plane: 352* 12.52/60+30.9*12.52/60*(15*0.65)*55=3531.08 50 seat plane: 672* 12.52/60+30.9*12.52/60*(50*0.65)*55=11665.67 150 seat plane 1590*12.52/60+30.9*12.52/60*(150*0.65)*55= 34908.10 For the arrival rate of 59: 15 seat plane: 352* 60.5/60+30.9*60.5/60*(15*0.65)*59=18278.29 50 seat plane: 672* 60.5/60+30.9*60.5/60*(50*0.65)*59=60422.10 150 seat plane 1590*60.5/60+30.9*60.5/60*(150*0.65)*59= 180836.77 b) According to the FAA definition of delay, the airport would only experience delays at an arrival rate of 59. Therefore, the cost for arrival rates of 50 and 55 for all planes would be 0 as there’d be no delay. For arrival rate of 59, the costs would be the same as part a). I’d expect that a delay of 15 minutes would mean little for the passengers, so the cost per passenger would be negligible as well. It’s also possible that the cost per passenger and operational costs aren’t evenly spread out over an hour (i.e. the first 15 minutes don’t contribute 25% of the cost). Given this...

Delays at Logan Airport

...Current situation Delays are a very important issue at Boston’s Logan Airport, the fifth most delayed airport in the United States. Approximately 4.75% of total flights at Logan Airport are delayed and with total annual operations projected to increase over the next 15 years, it is important to address this issue today. Delay costs, which include operational and human costs, prove to be extensive and therefore a solution has to be found to ensure the survival of Logan airport. The major causes of these delays include the adverse weather conditions as well as the fact that demand tends to be clustered at certain periods of the day. There are several approaches that can be taken to conquer this delay problem. The first option, which has been determined to be the best alternative, is to build another runway. This would ensure at least two operating runways at all times, regardless of weather conditions. The second option proposed for dealing with the delay issue is that of peak period pricing (PPP), which entails increasing airline fees during periods of high demand in order to spread the demand for flights more evenly throughout the day. Problem analysis Weather is the foremost cause of delays in the case of Logan Airport. The airport’s operational capacity is significantly impacted by these adverse weather conditions (declining from approximately 120 operations per hour in normal conditions to approximately 80 operations per hour). In some cases, entire runways must be...
