Whether in negotiated mergers,1 freeze-out mergers, 2 hostile tender offers, 3 friendly tender offers,4 self-tenders, 5 leveraged buyouts, 6 negotiated share repurchases, 7 or negotiated sales of treasury stock,8 directors seek the blessing of investment banks before approving transactions or adopting defensive measures. These banks give their blessings in the form of fairness opinions, which usually consist of short letters that state an opinion about whether a proposed transaction is "fair" or "adequate." 9 In addition, the banks often give presentat Professor of Law, Harvard Law Schaool; Faculty Research Fellow, National Bureau of Economic Research. * Visiting John M.

...Kevin Thomas GE217 Hudson 12/16/12 Opinion on John Ellis John Ellis’s opinion on violence on television was very one sided. He primarily focused on the increase in violence on television correlating directly to the increase in violence in school. While this is a factor to consider in the increase of violence, he never once looked at his examples of students that committed these horrific crimes home life. The way the perpetrators grew up surely needs to be considered. Home life plays a big part on how the person will develop and moral standing on how they will react to actually doing a horrendous crime like shooting children in a school. John Ellis’s percentages on the increase in violence on television were astounding. If a person watches television a lot of the time of course that will affect the way they view life in death if they are seeing it so blatantly disregarded on television every day. Taking all of what John has written, I do not feel that violence in television is the only reason for the increase in school shootings. Violence is a part of the world, that is just the case and it always has been. What he did not look at is the whole picture. While I agree that violence in television has increased significantly, that cannot be the only factor in why someone would commit these crimes. What pushed these people over the edge? Why were these people watching television episodes with so much violent in them so often? Why did the parents of this person not supervising......

...that mirrored that of male counterparts. Training consists of classes on culture and language, instruction on how to conduct engagements, and combat skills (including weapons handling, personnel searching, and patrolling). FETs are trained to understand the culture, practice and ways of Afghan life, since making a sound connection within Afghan communities is the key to their success. I feel that these women met the physical standards set by Headquarters Marine Corps for combat deployment as Female Engagement Teams and in the absence of new orders I revert to the established policies that allow women to operate in combat zones. I have explained my personal observations of women operating in a combat operation, now I will offer my opinion of a woman’s right to choose. Women have earned the opportunity to serve as pilots in direct support of combat troops during engagements and I believe they should have the opportunity to earn the chance to operate in a kinetic environment. The website News Observer.com provides an article “Female Troops Still Battling for Right to Fight.” The article states that due to cultural taboos in Iraq and Afghanistan, women are volunteering for duties that send them into dangerous neighborhoods and villages where insurgents hide, to search females for weapons and obtain information. Male Marines would not be able to conduct these types of interviews without disturbing the local male populace. The females are not doing this for notoriety...

Law Opinion

...Dr. Adams CJ/224 Law Opinion Paper When looking at the creation of U.S Laws we can clearly see that part of this is from the Bill of Rights which is our first ten commandments. In the United States our criminal law is entirely a product of the constitutional authority and the legislative bodies. These same legislative and constitutional authority figures also affect our common law or case law interpretation and the regulatory agency decisions. Our U.S constitution is responsible for creating our Congress and giving them the lawmaking power. They also describe the procedural laws that can dictate how substantive laws are to be administered. This important because it sets limits on what can be defined as a crime. The criminal laws are the products of the lawmaking bodies which have the constitutional authority. Looking at the federal statues, they were as well enacted by our Congress. Our state statutes were enacted by our state legislatures. Common law or case law decisions are the byproduct made by trial. Common law is also known as a case law or precedent, developed by judges. The appellate court judge can make laws whenever they seem fit in a particular case. This decision is becomes a potential bases or gives precedent for future outcomes of related cases. It is primarily the written decisions of the appellate court judges a court judge has the potential to decide the precedent. The decisions made by appellate judges are normally in writing, and the Common......

Communication Opinion

...Running head: COMMUNICATION OPINION Communication Opinion HCS/ 320 Abstract With today’s healthcare being more diverse and complex than it has ever been in the past, it is important for communication among healthcare professionals and/or the persons receiving care to be as positive and effective as it can be. The perception of healthcare delivery can easily be either hindered or enhanced by how communication has been handled by both the health care professional and those seeking services. Effective communication, which is comprised in part of what is deemed as timely, accurate, unambiguous and is easily understood by the intended recipient, in most cases helps to reduce errors and results in the complete safety of the patient. This is extremely important because ineffective communication can often lead to delayed or improper treatment of patients. Communication Opinion Good medical care, or the perception of good medical care, depends greatly on effective healthcare communication. The challenges with communication arise before the patient even seeks care. The ability for providers to ensure the proper access to health care, give the feeling of safety and to also engage in providing quality health care is paramount. When communicating in the healthcare field it is important that what is actually being said is comprehended and understood by all parties involved in the conversation. Many times the inability of a patient to understand the language can create......

...Opinion Paper Dress code has been the biggest topic between the Board officials and parents. There have been many decisions and arguments that were worked out by administration and local school, often at the request of parents. There should be a dress code for students for several reasons. Many public schools today are making dangerous decisions and these decisions may end up saving someone's life. The decisions are about school uniforms and dress codes. Public schools are beginning to open their eyes to the real world and see what their students are wearing and what the clothes are about. Some schools have banned any clothes with inappropriate symbols or sayings. Baggy wear is very dangerous. Schools are now even taking away the privilege of those clothes for the reason that weapons and other dangerous, illegal items may be smuggled in under loose pants, hats, shirts and jackets. The cost of maintaining a stylish wardrobe can be expensive. Many families have more important things to spend their money on than the image of school children. The dress code may be a way to keep the costs of school down for those families. In some schools, there has even been fighting or stealing based on expensive sneakers or jewelry. There are many clothes in fashion for boys and girls which are not appropriate for school dress. Good taste and common sense should dictate parental and student choice of school clothes. The school will determine what is not......

...The writing process begins the minute you get a writing assignment—whether you are writing a book, an essay, or a single paragraph. It involves all the activities you do, from choosing a topic to turning in a final draft. The phases, or stages, of the writing process are prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing. Prewriting Prewriting refers to all activities that help you explore a subject, generate ideas about it, choose a specific topic, establish a purpose, and analyze the audience for your paragraph or essay. Your mission at this stage is to stimulate your thinking before and during the act of writing. Every time you think of a new idea during the writing process, you are prewriting. Drafting When you have lots of ideas to work with, you are ready to start drafting. Drafting involves writing down your thoughts, developing or expanding some ideas, organizing your thoughts to reflect your purpose, and writing a first version of your paragraph or essay. To start on your draft, you may want to spread out your class notes, journal entries, and other prewriting notes so that you can start to string your ideas together. This is the time to keep your thoughts flowing without worrying too much about grammar, punctuation, mechanics, or spelling. Revising As you may suspect, the process of writing is not finished with your first draft. You should always revise your work to make it stronger and better. Revising involves rethinking your content and organization so that your......

On Writing

...Ashley Eller December 12, 2011 UCWR110-022 Final Reflective Essay On Writing My favorite author and literary genius, Stephen King, in his memoir On Writing wrote, “Write with the door closed, rewrite with the door open.” This is possibly the best piece of advice I could ever think to give to a struggling student with a paper to write. Your first draft is always for yourself and your own personal reflection. In your second draft, “open up the doors” and write for everyone else who will be reading it. Without this solid piece of advice, I don’t think I could have ever expanded on my writing at all. Over the years, my writing career has hit its peak in junior year, and I have plateaued from there. Since being a UCWR student, I have had the chance to expand my range in my writing skills. From this course, I have learned to expand my writing ability to subjects I would never have broached before, allowing myself to heighten my awareness of the world around me as well as hinder my procrastination. In the beginning of the year, I was very disappointed I would have to take this course. From my previous experience with accelerated English and rhetoric courses, I felt I would be bored and disappointed with the classroom experience. Over the course of the semester, I have learned I was wrong. While in the beginning my engagement level was poor, I was still interested by the current events brought up in class. Some of the biggest topics we discussed (Occupy Wallstreet, Penn State...

...Matter of Opinion I do not agree with the article and I would like to explain why. First let’s take a look at the statement “entitled to an opinion”, what does it mean to be entitled? Entitlement is simply staking claim, so when someone says they are “entitled to their opinion” what they are saying is they are claiming the opinion as theirs. We can assume this to be true because they have stated an opinion and now they are stating that the opinion is theirs, while this should be the end of the story it is far from over. Part of the problem with this article is the fact that the author is stating his opinion that “people are not entitled to their opinions” as fact, however he contradicts himself. Fact either is or is not true, so either people are entitled to their opinions or they are not, he can’t have it both ways, but this is exactly what he is trying to do when he specifically states in the article that there are some opinions that just can’t be argued, such as those involving personal preference (Stokes, 2012, para 7). It makes sense then that if an opinion cannot be argued against for reason of logic then the person of the opinion must be entitled to it. My argument does not stop there however, let’s just assume people who have opinions on their personal preference are not entitled to them and move on to what I believe the author was really trying to convey, people should not have an opinion unless it is based in fact and they can back it up. What about Juries?......

Writing and grammar at first may not seem that important in an I.T. techs everyday business life, yet we would be wrong. In a business environment no matter what your job position or title is proper writing and grammar are a vital part of everyday communication. If you’re the computer repairman and you need to send out a companywide memo to warn against a virus or a computer threat, you do not want to sound as if you have no educational background Especially if you have not personal most of the individuals included on the email, they will have a bad first impression without actually meeting you. Good writing skills are a key asset at every stage of your career, from the moment you write your very first cover letter and resume until your retirement party. This is especially true for administrative professionals who are responsible for a significant amount of written communication on a daily basis. You don’t have to be a published author or hold a degree in comparative literature to be a skilled writer. Sound written communication is advantageous for ambitious administrative professionals at all levels and across many levels within the computer world (Hosking, 2014, para. 1). Whether we think about it or not, we communicate in writing every day. Every time you send an......

Communications Opinion

...Communication Opinion Effective communication plays a vital role the success of every professional and personal relationship. A skilled communicator requires every element of communication. These elements include: public speaking, interpersonal relationships, media development and business relations. The basic communication model consists of five elements of communication: the sender, the receiver, the message, the channel and feedback. The senders’ specific role is initiating the communication. To communicate effectively, the sender uses effective verbal and non-verbal techniques. Speaking or writing clearly, organizing points for easy understanding with maintaining eye contact and using proper grammar gives accurate information to the receiver. The receiver is the party to whom the sender transmits the message to. A receiver can be one individual or a group of individuals. The receiver can also communicate both verbally and non-verbally. The message is the most crucial element of effective communication. The message can come in many different forms such as speech, written document, presentation, chart, graph, etc. The channel is what the message travels from start to finish. The channel provides a medium for the message to travel between talking points between parties. The last element of effective communication is feedback. Feedback helps the sender determine how the receiver interpreted the message and how it may be improved. There are several ways in......

Communication Opinion

...Communication Opinion Eric Talen HCS/320: Health Care Communication Strategies Instructor Dr. Monique J. Williams, MSPA February 8, 2015 Communication incorporates the basic elements as so.  There are six elements to this process.  Sender/Receiver, Encoding, Decoding, Message, Channel, and Feedback.  In which, I will explain these one at a time.  The first element, Sender/Receiver, you obvious have to as both otherwise the conversation is one sided.  The sender must be able to convey the message with a clear and concise language that the receiver can understand and process.  The receiver must keep an open mind and lower any filters he/she has in there head in order to understand the true meaning of the message which also means that they must put aside any thoughts or personal beliefs for a moment, be silent, listen, and take take the time to process and understand the message that was given. The second element we'll briefly talk about is Encoding.  Basically, the sender creates a communication message.  The sender will start to have an idea which is put together into symbols that the receiver will understand.  So for short, we're turning thought into symbols.  Which brings me to the next element which is Decoding.  So if senders create the message, the receiver is the destination for that message and will put the meaning of the symbols together to understand the message. Now we talk about the Message element.  What is a message?  Simply put, it is a thought, idea,......

...1.0: Introduction Writing is one of the most crucial aspects in language learning. It is not an easy task as it seems as writing is actually a process; and it is the teachers’ responsibilities to help students becoming good writers. According to Hedge (2005), writing process consists of four stages that are ‘Composing’, ‘Communicating’, ‘Crafting’ and ‘Improving’ (pp. 17). Therefore, this essay presents the main principles that underlie in activities that assist learners at these different stages in the writing process which is designed by Tricia Hedge in her book, ‘Writing’ (2005). This paper will start with a discussion about the first stage of writing that is ‘Composing’, and continue with another stage which is ‘Communicating’. ‘Crafting’ will be explained next, and finally, the last stage which is ‘Improving’ will be addressed. Additionally, an example of activity will be illustrated in each section. 2.0: Composing Composing is a stage that ‘takes a writer from pre-writing to polishing a final draft for a specific purpose and a particular audience’ (pp. 81). Hedge believes that good writing is often recursive, and not linear where various operations take place simultaneously throughout writing process. There are three main activities in this stage; pre-writing, drafting and redrafting, and editing. In pre-writing, the focus will be mainly on planning the outlines and exploring possible content. The learners will be aided to identify the purpose and the......
