Main Task: Analyze the Empress Luxury Lines Case
Read and review the Empress Luxury Lines case.
Write a paper analyzing the case based on the questions at the end of the case (also listed below). This paper should thoroughly provide an analysis and discussion of each of the three main questions as well as the sub-questions posed inside of the main questions.
1.When determining what his obligations are to his subordinate, Kevin Pfeiffer, what decision would Antonio Melendez most likely reach if he applied the utilitarian approach to decision making? What conclusions would probably result if he employed the individualism approach?
2.Put yourself in Antonio’s position and decide realistically what you would do. Is your response at a pre-conventional, conventional, or post-conventional level of moral development? How do you feel about your response?
3.If Antonio or Kevin were fired because they reported Empress’s fraud, would they be justified in removing all traces of their employment at the cruise line from their resumes so they don’t have to explain to a prospective employer why they were fired? Why or why not?
Support your paper with minimum of three (3) resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
Explain why nonalcoholic drinks have increased in popularity, and discuss the difficulties bar managers face when serving alcohol. Use specific details and examples to support your thoughts. Paper should be at least 250 words with references.
Part I: When Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” was published, society treated it as a horror story. Reflect on the short story and apply what you know about the elements of Gothic fiction. What element(s) do you believe justify its place in the gothic lit genre? Provide several examples to support your point. The story can also be viewed as an early feminist piece that examines the role of women in the late nineteenth century, also serving to highlight Gilman’s own unhappy experience of being medically treated with a “resting cure” following a severe bout of post-partum depression. Compare the “resting cure” with today’s more advanced (and more sympathetic) treatments of post-partum depression.
Part II: Crane’s “Open Boat” and London’s “To Build A Fire” imply that humans do not have free will. They are, in fact, powerless to shape their external environment and control events. “When it occurs to a man that nature does not regard him as important, and that she feels she would not maim the universe by disposing of him, he at first wishes to throw bricks at the temple, and he hates deeply the fact that there are no bricks and no temples” (Crane 107 ). Such is the nature of Naturalistic literature, in which authors from this time period conceived of man as controlled by his instincts and unable to free himself from his place in the social and economic circumstances in which he finds himself.
Part 1 Write a 400 (minimum) -500 (maximum) word introduction to the “business” of your field for outsiders (like me) who are unfamiliar with your branch of study. What do people in your field do? Where do they work? What do they study? What kinds of questions do they ask? What kinds of methods do they use? Why is their research important? Who uses the results of their research? Who is affected by the results? You need not answer each of these questions or answer them in order. Try to create a cohesive and clear response introducing us to your field.
Part 2 will be a personalization of this introduction: Write a 400-500 word introduction to YOUR business in the general field? What do you do and study (specifically)? What kinds of questions do you ask? What kinds of methods do you use? To do this, you might consider specialties, co-ops, favorite classes, career aspirations. Why are you interested in this field? What brought you here?
-Combine the two sections and revise, considering the feedback received. You may combine the two sections with transition words or keep them separate with clear headings.
-GRADING HIGHLIGHTS. A successful paper provides:
• A thorough but specific overview of what people in your field do/think about.
• A personal connection to and investment in the field. Why are you engaged in the field?
• Thorough analysis rather than observation. The paper should not be a surface glance (i.e. firefighters put out fires. . . . ) but an analysis of these observations (because firefighters put out fires, they have a solid understanding of both physics and chemistry. . . ).
• Appropriate audience consideration (people unfamiliar with the field). Stay away from jargon and define terms as needed.
• Clear language and few mechanical or grammatical errors.
• Citations in a noted Citation Style (AMA, APA, MLA). For this paper, sources, and therefore, citations, are optional. You may want to consult a source, and if so, please note the citation style in the header. If you choose a source, it should be thoughtful and apt. In other words, stay away from Wikipedia or dictionary definitions. Instead, you may use something like a textbook, a journal article from your field, or a website of a professional organization.
The Civil War accelerated technological advances in the United States
1. Thesis statement.
The great American civil war was a period of great unrest both socially and politically. However, this was the period where America got to witness a lot of technological innovation as well as advancement. The war, which was the last of its kind, managed to leave a great impression not only in the casualties of the war but society as we know it today. Some of the technologies developed during the period have been improved over the years into technology that is of core importance to society today. On the other hand, the lethal technologies were able to leave catastrophic marks society in general.
Argument in the support of the thesis.
During the civil war technological advances were made in many fields including food and medicine, however, there are a number of fields whose technological advancements directly affected the war. These include weaponry, transport and communication. Communication, which had started slightly before the civil war played an important role of ensuring that information regarding the war, was carried far and wide (Zylstra, 2004). This was all thanks to the invention of the newspaper which ensured that all information regarding the law was made public. This was also important in the requesting of civilians to enroll for the war. Communication was also advance in form of the invention of the telegraph. This enhanced the communication between troops or platoons as well as the between the soldiers in the field and the base. This was important for the war for information that had previous had the risk of being passed on to the wrong hands or would take long to reach particular destinations now took a shorter period.
The second group of technological advancements during the war was in the transport sector. Here, major steps were taken in the invention of the railroad, balloons and submarines. The railroad was one of the largest innovations that helped tipped the scale in the civil war. When the war started, the north had already constructed 22,000 miles of railroad as compared to the 9,000 miles. Most of the locomotive factories were also situated in the north. While the northern railroad tracks were standard gauge which allowed any train car to ride on, the southern tracks were standardized meaning that passengers and goods had to constantly switch tracks. During the war, union soldiers used the tracks for transportation of supplies as well as troops from one destination to the other. This gave them an advantage over the confederates.
During the civil war, planes had not been invented thus it had been hard to access aerial surveillance for any of the parties. However, with the invention of the balloons, information via telegram could be send from one destination to the other without having to traverse over enemy ground. At sea, the submarines helped create a blockade that did not allow the confederates to pass (Ennis, 2008). These blockades were placed at all ports of the areas that belonged to the confederates. This in the end gave the union army an added advantage despite the spirited fight that confederates put up.
The greatest impart of technology was however advanced in the weaponry field. The revolution of the firearms played the greatest role in the war by leaving casualties that would have otherwise been in smaller numbers. Prior to the war, riffles would only shoot one bullet at a time. Though easy to reload, this was rather cumbersome. However, during the war repeat riffle was invented (Kingseed, 2004). This riffle was able to discharge more bullets before the need to reload arrived. The most famous of this riffle at the time was the Spencer carbine which would fire up to seven shots in thirty seconds. Most combatants used smooth-bore muskets that had a maximum range of about 300 feet. However, shortly before the start of the war, the invention of rifling meant bullets could spin and travel up to 900 feet (Timmons, 2005). Defense was made easy with the use of the Minie bullet. This was an important defensive development and increased the range and accuracy of muskets. Like all the other technological advancements that took part in this period the north rather than the south used added advancement. This meant that the north would have added advantage given the amount of damage that would be would be inflicted using these advanced weapons (Mountjoy, 2009).
The second part of technological advancement that that played a significant role in the civil war was in the ship industry. While both sides of the war had been aware of the fact that they needed to armor-clad their ships, the north obviously had advanced technology. This is because during the first encounter between the two sides using this technology left the whole confederate fleet destroyed (Simson, 2001).
It is therefore clear that technology advancement played an important role in swaying the outcome of the American civil war. As evidenced, the region with the most technological advancement was able to inflict more casualties that the region with less technological advancement. Thus, it was during this period that some of the greatest technological advancement was created.

you will write a paper based on the theme of Good and Evil, and the ethical theories of Immanuel Kant and John Stuart Mill.
You will choose to view either the movie Casablanca, the movie High Noon, or a different movie that has been approved by your instructor, and will interpret the movie and relate one or two of the movie’s characters to the philosophies of Immanuel Kant and John Stuart Mill.
You will relate your character selections to the following:
•Immanuel Kant: Categorical Imperative and the concept of duty.
•John Stuart Mill: Utilitarianism and the concept of the “greatest good for the greatest number.”
Immanuel Kant lived from 1723 to 1804. The most important ethical concept you should consider as you think about how one should live the Good Life is his ethical theory called the Categorical Imperative. It is categorical because it applies to all human beings and it is imperative because there are no exceptions.
He insisted ethics should be based on a person’s rational and universal duty both to one’s self and to others. Meaning: Because we are rational beings, we have a rational duty to perform as we live our lives. And for Kant, the highest claim is the ethical claim of a rational duty. His theory is often called “Deontological” and that simply means it is based on our sense of duty and not on just the results.
But duty to what? Could our duty change? Should we have a first duty to our country, to an ideal, or even to God? And in the case of conflicting duties, which should come first?
As you consider your movie selection, select those characters or scenarios you consider to represent Kant’s moral philosophy of duty and the Categorical Imperative.
John Stuart Mill
The second philosopher is John Stuart Mill, who lived from 1806 to 1873. His theory of how we should live the Good Life differs from Kant in that Mill was more concerned with the results or the consequences of our actions. Thus, his theory is often called Consequential Ethics or more commonly referred to as Utilitarianism. He felt the foundation for ethical and moral action should be based on the greatest good or happiness for the greatest number of people.
It is as simple as that or it is as complex as that. Meaning: How do we go about measuring something like “happiness” and by what standard? Interestingly, he and Jeremy Bentham devised a formula known as the Hedonistic Calculus by which we could apply objective standards to measuring happiness.
Accordingly, we should treat others and make laws toward that end. The maximum amount of good or happiness can be obtained by the greatest number of people. In your movie selection, describe those characters or scenarios you understand to be representative of Mill’s philosophy of Utilitarianism and the greatest good for the greatest number.
As you write your paper, consider the following:
•What characters or scenarios support the claims of Kant or Mill?
•What are Dermatological and Consequential ethical theories?
•How do your character selections or scenarios exemplify Good or Evil?
You are expected to use a minimum of 3 citations from your source reading and from the Capella University Library.
Also, please consult the scoring guide, as this will be used to score your paper.
•Paper Length: Approximately 950 words.
•Written Communication: Written communication should be free of errors that detract from the overall message.
•APA Formatting: Resources and citations should be formatted according to APA (6th edition) style and formatting.
•Font and Font Size: Arial, 12-point, double-spaced. Use Microsoft Word.
•Number of Resources: Cite a minimum of 3 resources.
