ASHFORD BUS 311 Entire Course (Business Law) NEW SYLLABUS 2013

Applying the Law to a Set of Facts. Read the Hypothetical Case Problem #1 at the end of Chapter 1 and respond to these questions

1. If Javier sued Energy-Auto Inc., identify who would be the plaintiff and the defendant.

2. In which state or states can the suit be brought?

3. Assume that Javier incurred $100,000 in damages.

a) Analyze whether the suit can be brought in federal court

b) Explain the advantages and disadvantages of federal versus state court for this type of suit.

Guided Response: Analyze and respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings. Do you agree with their conclusions? Did the facts you considered important in determining jurisdiction differ from your classmates? Explain why or why not.

Tort or Crime. In Chapter 1 of the text you read about the Bailey v. Eminem defamation case where the court held Eminem’s lyrics were protected by the First Amendment. Read the article and view the video (the links are listed under Week 1 Additional Learning Resources Required and Week 1 Multimedia Required) to the Pahler v. Slayer case. Respond to the following questions:

1. Did the Pahler court use the same reasoning as used in Bailey v. Eminem?

2. Should the court’s decision in Pahler be different because a young girl was murdered?

3. Recall the difference between a crime and a tort. Based on these two cases, analyze and discuss whether artists should be held liable for the actions of their fans.

Elements of a Contract. Read the Case Campbell Soup Co. v. Wentz in the text. Answer the following questions:

1. What were the terms of the contract between Campbell and the Wentzes?

2. Did the Wentzes perform under the contract?

3. Did the court find specific performance to be an adequate legal remedy in this case?

4. Why did the court refuse to help Campbell in enforcing its legal contract?

5. How could Campbell change its contract in the future so as to avoid the unconsionability problem?

The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). Read the Ace Heating and Cooling scenario in your text and answer the following questions:

a. Under UCC 2-302, who has the best chance of getting out of the contract due to unconsionability?

b. The symbol for justice features a woman wearing a blindfold illustrating that the law should be applied the same way regardless of who the parties are. Does the UCC rule seem to contradict this? Which approach do you think is more ethical?

c. Note that both Glamour and Shady Rest are businesses, and courts rarely find that contracts between two businesses are unconscionable. The rationale is that a business is a sophisticated entity, familiar with transactions and able to protect itself. Do you think Glamour and Shady Rest are in a comparable position in regard to this contract? Why or why not?

Critical Analysis Paper. Give an example of a contract that you or someone you know entered into (for example, rental agreement, cell phone agreement, property purchase or lease—car, home, furniture, etc.; home or car repair, student loan agreement). Apply the five essential elements of an enforceable contract to your example and answer the following questions.

1. Was the contract successfully fulfilled?

2. Was there a breach of the contract?

3. If so, what remedies were available?

Employment-at Will. Should the law allow an employer to fire an employee without a good reason? Conduct research to provide examples to support your position and use your own personal employment experiences when possible. Have you observed situations where an employee was fired? Did the employer give a reason? Do you believe the employer’s actions were legal?

A Principal’s Responsibility for the Actions of Their Agent. Karen is shopping at Big Mart. She has with her an umbrella which is the same brand Big Mart carries. When a Big Mart employee, Steve, sees her leave with the umbrella without going through the checkout lane, he asks her to come back into the store. Steve says that he thinks Karen is shoplifting the umbrella. Karen tells him that she has had the umbrella for years and shows him marks of wear and tear. Steve apologizes and tells Karen she is free to go. Can Karen successfully sue for false imprisonment or defamation? From what you have learned about the relationship between a principal and an agent, analyze whether Steve or Big Mart could be liable because of Steve’s actions.

Final Paper Prep. Review the assignment requirements for the Final Paper in Week 5. In a one to two page APA-formatted paper address the following:

1. Thesis statement

2. Topic of your paper

3. Outline the major headings

4. One article from your literature review using the Annotated Bibliography Guidelines below:

a. State the complete bibliographic citation for the article using APA format

b. Provide a summary/abstract/annotation of the article, which means to list the major topics discussed in the article.

Real, Intellectual, and Personal Property. List two characteristics each of real, intellectual, and personal property. Do owners of real, intellectual, and personal property each have the same rights under the law? List how each type of property is treated under the law. Explain why it is in the best interest of society to treat these types of property the same or differently.

Business Ethics. Read the article Governance in the Spotlight: What Sarbanes Oxley means to You. In this article the author outlines provisions companies are now required to implement. Consider the requirements imposed by Sarbanes Oxley on corporate boards of directors. Do small businesses and privately held companies have ethical duties? If so, to whom would they owe this duty? Employees? Customers? Vendors?

Should the law impose ethical requirements on small businesses or privately held companies or can the marketplace police unethical business behavior? Provide support to justify your position.

Multimedia activity: Business Organization.

DeAngelis, M. (2012, February 15). Business Entities. Hartford, Connecticut, USA. Accessed via: http://legalstudiesclassroom.blogspot.com/2012/02/business-entities.html

List the general requirements of an LLC, partnership and corporation. Find an example of a business organization that is an LLC. Discuss why this company preferred to be formed as an LLC instead of a partnership or a corporation. Describe at least one advantage or disadvantage of the LLC form for the company.

Intellectual Property and Technology. Internet domain names are linked to trademark issues. Technology makes it easy to copy and distribute music and movies without paying royalties. Business conducted on the internet raise security and privacy issues. What legal concerns are raised by these issues? Predict which of these issues will be of major concern in the future in regard to the law and business practices.

The Global Marketplace. How do governments attempt to control foreign businesses operating within their borders? When U.S. companies do business in other countries, what issues do they face? Describe the responsibilities and ethical concerns that you feel are important for U.S. companies to consider when doing business in other countries

The Final Research Paper should address a topic that is connected to the content of this course (elements and requirements of a valid contract; issues related to real and personal property; intellectual property; employment law; and/or, international law and the global marketplace.) This paper should focus on a legal issue or situation that relates to a business environment or activity with a focus on the legal impact technology has on this issue. Ideally, this topic would concern a matter that you have experienced or that you have knowledge of; however, this not a requirement, only a suggestion. Apply the legal concepts and ethical considerations discussed in this course to your chosen topic. At a minimum this paper should include:

A detailed description of the topic.

An analytical discussion of the legal issues that are involved. This would entail examining the issue from different viewpoints.

A discussion of ethical considerations (Remember: What is legal may not be ethical).

A discussion of the legal impact technology has on this issue.

A well defined and logically stated argument to support your position. This would include any suggestion or ideas for improvement in this area of law.

ITS 320 Critical Thinking Assignment 6 (MODULE 7)

ITS 320

Critical Thinking Assignment #6: Java Program #6 of 6 (70 Points)

Java Interactive GUI Application for Number Guessing with Colored Hints

(based on Module 7 material)

1) Develop a Java application that plays a “guess the number” game as described below.

a) Your application first gets a random number in the range 1-1000 inclusive (you might want to use Math.random() or the Random class).

b) The application then displays the following prompt (probably via a JLabel):

I have a number between 1 and 1000. Can you guess my number?

Please enter your first guess.

Post a textbox for the user to enter a number and post a message telling the user to hit ‘Enter’ after entering a guess in a textbox (probably using a JTextField).

c) Input the user’s guess in the code for a previously-registered event-handler method (consider using the event-handling approach discussed in the text, or the actionPerformed() method of class based on the ActionListener interface, which will require some additional research outside the text).

d) For the first guess, color the entire background red, meaning that they are getting warmer (you might want to use the setBackground() method for a container). If this is the second or later guess, and they are further from the correct number than the last guess, then color the entire background blue. If they get the correct number then color the background some other color than red or blue.

e) If the user guessed the number correctly, respond with their number, post a congratulatory message, get a new random number, and display a JButton to start a new game. Otherwise, to help the user close in on the correct number, post a message, with their guessed number, whether they are “TOO HIGH” or “TOO LOW” from the correct number, and whether they are “WARMER” or “COLDER” (this should match the background color). Also report the guess number of the next guess (e.g. “Enter guess number nnn”). You might want to use a concatenated string in JLabel for these incorrect guess messages.

f) The process is repeated each game until the user guesses the correct number. Be sure that you erase obsolete status messages.

You must run your program for a scenario where the number is not guessed correctly for at least 4 (four) tries (it can be more). A game where you guess the correct number on the fourth try is acceptable. You must show all user inputs and program outputs for this scenario, not just a sample.

Your submitted output must include the appropriate red or blue background after each guess.

You must include at least one “warmer” and one “cooler” result.

To help you visualize what is required for this program please review the sample output from the last step in these specifications below.

(This program was taken from Exercise 11.15 on page 592 of Deitel & Deitel’s “Java How to Program (Sixth Edition)” (2005 by Pearson Publishing Co.))

Be sure that you include the course, the program number, your name, and the date in your program header. Include additional comments as necessary and maintain consistent indentation for good programming style as shown in the text. Be sure that you capture all of your output for this program’s execution for full credit!

2) You may use any Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE) you choose to develop your source code, compile and link your code, and execute your program (jGRASP is recommended). Or you may use the Windows Command Prompt.

3) You are to submit the following deliverables in a single Microsoft Word file in this order, and clearly labeled.

a) A screen snapshot of your Java source code (all file(s) shown separately) displayed in the IDE or Windows editor showing a successful compilation if possible (only the beginning of the source file(s) are necessary).

b) A listing of your entire source code file(s).

c) A screen snapshot of all of your program’s inputs and outputs for a complete number guessing game. Partial screen snapshots from a game will result in lost points.

4) Your instructor may compile and run your program to verify its correctness.

5) You will be evaluated on (in order of importance):

a) Following directions and inclusion and packaging of all deliverables in Step #3.

b) Correct execution of your program (this includes proper compilation). This also includes getting the correct answers!

c) Proper commenting of your Java code and indentation (as specified in the text).

d) Neatness in packaging of your deliverables (to include putting the items in Step #3 in the correct order).

6) Here’s an example of what the output from your application might look like

False Belief Tasks. According to your text, “the ‘gold standard’ that researchers use to demonstrate understanding of belief is success on tasks that require understanding of one’s own or another person’s false belief” (Siegler, 2005, pg. 318). Young children often fail false belief tasks. This finding has been interpreted in a number of different ways. Give an original example of a false belief task that could be given to a three-year-old (do not use an example from the text). Describe an interpretation of children’s poor performance on false belief tasks. Provide at least two factors that can enhance the performance of students on false belief tasks.
