What form of business organization would you choose for this venture, and why

This is CANADIAN Commercial Law. The book for the course is called 'Managing the Law – The Legal Aspects of Doing Business' Third Edition from Pearson Canada.

1. This assignment is worth 15 per cent of your final grade and must be submitted after you have completed Units 9 and 10.

2. Prepare a two to three page, double spaced, typewritten or word processed response to each of questions given with the case situation (four to six pages total). Ensure that your response or analysis addresses all aspects of the question and that, as applicable, your response draws on or relates to the concepts presented in Units 9 and 10.
Case

You have decided to open a gift basket business, and you hope to make lots of money. You elect to buy a small, inexpensive warehouse where you will store your inventory. You will then set up a website at which customers will place orders for various kinds of gift baskets. For example, a customer might order your “Chocolate Lover’s” basket, which contains an assortment of chocolate items. You guarantee delivery anywhere in North America within three days, based on your contract with a reputable courier company.

You want to run the business independently, but your brother, George, and his best friend, Tina, are going to be contributing some money. You want their money, but you don’t want to lose control of your business. Nevertheless, George might be helpful to you because he has had lots of business experience.

You are also thinking about hiring a couple of employees, but you want to make sure they won’t do your venture more harm than good. For instance, you’ll want to keep an eye on their use of your computer equipment and ensure that they follow proper hygienic procedures when filling the gift basket orders.

Finally, you would like a bank loan to help you get started. You are richer in ideas than assets! You have a nice car (two years old, worth $28,000), but you are still making payments on it. You also have $20,000 in savings and a small retirement nest egg of $10,000. You are hoping to use no more than half of your savings to get the gift basket business going.

Questions

1. What form of business organization would you choose for this venture, and why? Outline the advantages and disadvantages of each of the three major types of business in this particular context.

2. Additional facts: You’ve found a great little warehouse to purchase for your venture. It’s on the outskirts of town, right next to an old industrial complex. The building is a little old and shabby, but the price is right. Also, there’s some equipment on the premises you might be able to use. Of course, you’ll have to see if Uncle Len will loan you the money to buy the place.

The only real problem, as you see it, is the loading dock. The access to it is rather narrow for large trucks. They would have to drive over about 20 feet of your neighbour’s property to properly access the loading dock.

List four (4) conditions that you will want to be sure you include in your offer to purchase, and explain why it’s important to include each of them.

Commercial LawPaper instructions:
This is CANADIAN Commercial Law. The book for the course is called 'Managing the Law – The Legal Aspects of Doing Business' Third Edition from Pearson Canada.

1. This assignment is worth 10 per cent of your final grade and must be submitted after you have completed Unit 7.

2. Prepare a one to two page, double spaced, typewritten or word processed response to each case. For each case, ensure that your response or analysis addresses all aspects of the case problem.

Case 1

Graham, a 22 year old university student, decided to go go cart racing with a few of his friends. The local track, called Speed Demons, provided rentals of high powered go carts capable of speeds of up to 60 kilometres per hour. Speed Demons also had a restaurant and lounge.

Before renting a go cart, Graham drank four beers with his friends over lunch. When he paid his rental fee, Graham was presented with a “waiver of liability” form which he was told by the attendant to read and sign. Graham, who was swaying somewhat at the rental counter, did not read the form but signed his name. After his fourth erratic lap around the track, he lost control of the go cart and suffered a serious neck injury.

To make matters worse, when his friends rushed over to assist him, they didn’t realize he had injured his spinal cord and pulled him roughly out of the go cart. As a result, Graham’s spinal cord was damaged and he has lost the use of his legs. Medical experts claim that if proper precautions had been taken by his rescuers, he would have preserved the use of his legs and his injuries would have been relatively minor.

Advise Graham of his rights and determine the probable outcome if Graham should bring legal actions against Speed Demons and the friends who removed him from the go cart.

Case 2

Kirk went to “Togs to Go” to return a shirt for which he did not have a receipt. While attempting to convince the clerk to accept the return, he became quite agitated. When he began to raise his voice, the clerk called security. Mr. Brander, the store’s new security guard, arrived and told Kirk to leave the store. Kirk began to walk toward the door without protest, but Mr. Brander grabbed Kirk’s upper arm and insisted on escorting him out. On their way to the door, Mr. Brander said loudly, and within earshot of other customers, “You probably stole the shirt, and you’re lucky I’m not going to charge you.”

When they reached the door, Kirk pushed Mr. Brander away, presumably wanting to leave the store unassisted. Mr. Brander’s reaction was swift and violent. He put Kirk into a headlock and punched him in the kidney area. He then escorted Kirk to a room at the back of the store where Mr. Brander refused to let him use the phone. Four hours later, Mr. Brander finally called the police. Kirk was eventually released.

The store manager phoned Kirk to apologize for the actions of his overzealous security guard, but Kirk feels humiliated and wants to take legal action.

Explain Kirk’s options and the legal arguments available to both sides. What is the likely outcome?

Criminal Justice

Your assignment is to learn about confinement from another perspective. Choose a time and place that is convenient where this project will work for you.

You will need to spend eight (8) consecutive hours by yourself in a room in your home with the door shut sometime over the next few weeks.
The Rules

You choose the room and your own 8-hour time frame, but at least 50% of it must be during the time you are normally awake. That is, you cannot sleep through the whole 8 hours of the assignment.
Wear comfortable clothing. Inmate garb is simple.

You may not use a TV, radio, MP3 Player, computer, iPod, IPad, Game Boys, or similar items that serve as entertainment or communication with others. It is not necessary to move items out of a room, such as a TV, but make sure you do not utilize these items. You are in confinement for a short time and many jail cells do not have TVs. Televisions are generally provided or purchased by those that are serving longer sentences in prison.

No cell phones or other phones, and you may not receive or make calls. Phone calls must be approved in advance by the Warden of the Jail and she is not available.
No weight-lifting equipment or games.
No baths or showers during this time. Your name is not on the inmate-shower schedule today.
You may take one drink to the room with you. Once in your room, do not leave to collect additional drinks or food.
You may come out to use the bathroom, but a maximum of 2 times in the 8 hours.
You may take one 30-minute food break during the 8-hours, as this serves as your lunch or dinner break. That’s all the time the inmates get. Plan ahead and have your food prepared. You can use this time for another bathroom break or to chat with other “inmates” in the house, but no TV or phone calls.
You may take reading material with you when you initially start the project, but may not come out of the room for additional reading material.
Take paper and a pen with you, as you need to keep a journal during the 8 hours. At least once an hour, unless you are asleep, write down a sentence or two of what you are doing and how you are feeling. These will be typed out later.
NO verbal communications while in the room, such as talking to someone on the other side of the door or shouting to someone out the window. You can talk to yourself, if you are so inclined.
Do not take any sharp objects with you in the room, such as knives, tools, needles, scissors, etc. I don’t want you to hurt yourself or try and escape through the wall.
Last of all, and this one is optional, you can have a spouse, significant other, or friend serve as the correction officer and not let you out of the room unless it is time to come out. However, this must be a trustworthy person, or you may be confined longer than planned. Some “spouses” have enjoyed this role in the past, so choose carefully.

The Questions and Paper

At the end of the experiment, write about the experience by answering these specific questions.

How did you approach this project? That is, how did you prepare? For example, why did you choose the time of day that you did? What family member, roommate, or pet obligations did you take care of first? Did you shut off your phone and did you notify family, friends or coworkers that you would not be available during that time?
How did you feel BEFORE the project? Apprehensive, anxious, not wanting to do it, thinking it was a stupid project OR looking forward to time to yourself, a chance to read, and an adventure?
How did you feel AFTER the project? Tired, relieved, renewed or what?
What were your emotions and thoughts during the confined period of 8 hours? Be sure to write in your journal every hour a sentence or two about what you are feeling and thinking; unless you fall asleep. However, you may NOT sleep the whole 8 hours through this project.
If you broke the rules, what was the reason? For example, emergency, someone at work trying to reach you, family member knocking on the door, dog needing to be put out, too stressful of a project and had to quit, or what? In other words, you likely would not do well in a jail cell if you break the rules, but see if you can make the 8 hours.
Compare your experience with some of the reading material from the class? Be very specific; use the author’s names of the articles or books.
Your paper will be graded on the following.

(a) Addressing all six questions.

(b) Typing your handwritten journal notes and adding them at the end of the paper.

(c) Analyzing your experience and comparing your responses to the literature we have read.

(d) Use the APA Writing Format for your paper. That means double space it, use citations within the writing and add references at the end. The paper is to be between 5-8 pages.

Which ethnic, cultural, and racial groups are most subjected to prejudice today

Introduction to Human Geography – Lab # 4

Prejudice and Ethnocentrism

The United States is generally considered a very open society that offers many opportunities for immigrants with upward mobility in society. Even so, the nation must receive bad marks on some matters, for example, its treatment of Native Americans, Chinese, and African Americans, and Latinos. In fact (in part because of the country's openness to immigration), ethnocentrism, stereotyping, and racial prejudice have always played a part in U.S. History.
1. Which ethnic, cultural, and racial groups are most subjected to prejudice today?

2. Which were denigrated in the past but not the present?

3. Is mainstream U.S. culture more, or less, tolerant of different peoples

today than it was fifteen years ago?

4. How can a society overcome its racial/ethnic prejudice and ethnocentrism?

5. Have you had any personal experiences that relate to these issues?

Note: Support your findings with evidence from your text book and online reliable academic sources.
