Email to the Professor:
Greetings Dr. Potter,

I am Juan, current student of your Biology class, specifically on the U3M section. I was unable to attend your class yesterday (Wednesday, September 10th). I understand from a classmate that a handout was given related to the next lab assignment. The syllabus indicates that your office hours are between 12:00 - 2:00 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Would you be available in your office this Thursday so I can receive the lab assignment and ask for clarification on the material that we had to turn in? I would appreciate if you extend the deadline for the assignment, just for this occasion. I’m aware that your time is valuable so I don’t want to extend myself more. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Thank you very much and kind regards,

Reflecting on both examples, we can see the obvious difference with the two messages. Rhetoric communication is based on a purpose, and clearly the purpose on these two types of message was the same, but as you can see the formality and the extension are completely the opposite. What I wanted to accomplish was to notify my absence on both…...

Contract Made by Minors Are Void

...made by minors are void” Contracts entered into by a minor, one below the age at which state law deems persons to possess capacity to contract, currently 18 years old in most states are generally voidable by the minor-party, even if he misrepresented his age. A minor can furthermore avoid contractual obligations for a reasonable time after attaining the age of majority. However, if he fails to disaffirm within a reasonable time, the contract will become binding against him. Disaffirmance is a contractual obligation, setting aside, or a legal avoidance. For a minor to disaffirm, he or she must declare in words or in oneself, a reason not to be destined in to an agreement of a contract. They must stop the whole agreement, not just a small part of it. Minors must return all of the products that they have, not just the ones they do not want. If there, is a third party (adult) involved and have some of the products, the minor can ask for it back to return it to where he or she bought it. Once a minor reaches, the age of maturity, the court will give them two months or in some states one year to disaffirm. If the minor refuses to disaffirm, the courts will ratified it. Ratification is the act of accepting and giving legal force to an obligation that previously was not enforceable. If an adult is in this court case, they will have to be bound to it and pay. In some states and circumstances’ the courts will order and hold the minor the......

Contract Made by Minors Are Void

...Generally speaking a minor cannot enter into a legally binding contract. A contract with a minor is not enforceable (except when they are an emancipated minor). It can be voided. Someone who has not yet reached the age of majority cannot sign a legally binding contract. It is possible that they can 'affirm' or 'accept' the contract once they come of age, making it valid. Generally speaking no, not for the terms contained in the contract itself. However, if the minor deliberately perpetrated fraud in an attempt to gain services or products, (such as a credit card); he or she may be held liable for restitution and/or possibly face penalties both civil and criminal depending on the applicable laws of the state of jurisdiction. In cases involving credit card fraud there may have been federal violations as well. A minor can enter into a contract. However, most contracts cannot be enforced against minors. (They are voidable, at the request of the minor.) For that reason, most people are hesitant to enter into a contract with a minor. However, the minor can enter a contract, can choose not to void it, and can enforce it against the other party. In general, minors cannot enter into contracts. In most states, someone is a minor if he or she is under 18, though there may be variations. Therefore, if a minor signs a contract but later wants to get out of it, he or she can usually do so. For this reason, it is a good idea to have the minor's parents sign the......

Binge Drinking and Minors

...work.” Binge drinking is more common in people who score a B grade or less in education; it is also higher in people who have little interest in religion. Culture along with peer pressure plays an important role in binge drinking. Forty four percent of United States How Bingeing Became the New College Sport by Barrette Seaman In this essay Barrette Seaman argues the different approaches to suppress the abuse of alcohol by the undergraduates in college. He establishes the seriousness of the issue by providing the information that 300 deaths occur from alcohol poisoning a year. He also mentions that during the time he was visiting Hamilton college several people were hospitalized from alcohol poisoning including a freshman whom had consumed 22 shots of alcohol. He lets the reader know why the children abuse alcohol so much, calling it the "forbidden fruit"(491), and a way of cutting loose. He introduces the reason why the alcohol legal age limit was upped to 21. He says it’s because of lobbying by the mothers against drunk driving that congress blackmailed states to raise the legal age limit. Seaman shows us two approaches throughout the essay to suppress alcohol abuse. The first was the one he argues against, being that laws will play their effective role in suppressing undergraduates' urge to binge drink. The other approach he introduces is to reduce the age limit back to 18. He details how the abuse will increase, but only momentarily, till undergraduates treat alcohol......

The Electric Motor Works (EMW), belonging to the largest group named Energy and Automation where occupied nearly a quarter of total-revenues in 1987, primarily produced low wattage alternating current (A/C) motors. From 1937, Siemens stopped producing electric motors. With the massive reconstruction after WWII, EMW plant in Bad Neustadt became the principal electric motors producer. * Products and Processes In 1970s, EMW produced standard motors (80% sales volumes) and customised motors (20% sales volumes) The process of long run production was highlighted by standard motors due to large differentiated demand. * Market and Competition The market for standard motors was perfect competitive. The Eastern Bloc competitors with lower rates are dominant in market despite the actions by EMW in 1980s. * Costing system Under old costing system, overhead cost was separated to 3 categories related to materials, production and support. For new strategy, another two overhead pools were established to assign the used support related cost in further details. * Strategy EMW enlarged production of low-volume customized motors and lessened high-volume standard motors. Problems and issues * Problems: For old strategy, disadvantages in price competition existed due to low labour rates. And under old costing system, EMW has inaccurate data for......

Minor Capacity

...July 20, 1895, the respondent, Dhurmodas Ghose, executed a mortgage in favour of Brahmo Dutt, a money-lender carrying on business at Calcutta and elsewhere, to secure the repayment of Rs. 20,000 at 12 per cent. interest on some houses belonging to the respondent. The amount actually advanced is in dispute. At that time the respondent was an infant; and he did not attain twenty-one until the month of September following. Throughout the transaction Brahmo Dutt was absent from Calcutta, and the whole business was carried through for him by his attorney, Kedar Nath Mitter, the money being found by Dedraj, the local manager of Brahmo Dutt. While considering the proposed advance, Kedar Nath received information that the respondent was still a minor; and on July 15, 1895, the following letter was written and sent to him by Bhupendra Nath Bose, an attorney:—  “Dear Sir,—I am instructed by S.M. Jogendranundinee Dasi, the mother and guardian appointed by the High Court under its letters patent of the person and property of Babu Dhurmodas Ghose, that a mortgage of the properties of the said Babu Dhurmodas Ghose is being prepared from your office. I am instructed to give you notice, which I hereby do, that the said Babu Dhurmodas Ghose is still an infant under the age of twenty-one, and any one lending money to him will do so at his own risk and peril.”  Kedar Nath positively denied the receipt of any such letter; but the Court of first instance and the Appellate Court both held......

Owens & Minor

...Owens & Minor along with other distributors provide inventory storage and management services for hospitals and other healthcare providers. Manufacturers typically don’t want the responsibility of holding inventory and prefer to ship product as soon as its finished. The role of distributor has changed over time and they are now doing more for the customers. At one point distributors were just responsible for a small percentage markup to deliver product infrequently to the hospital docks. What are the services rendered by the distributor to manufacturers and hospitals? Distributors like Owens & Minor provide hospitals with the purchasing of materials, along with its warehousing as well as product returns. They also offer additional services such as managing JIT and stockless inventory programs for hospitals. Its typical for a distributor to also manage the product from the manufactures delivery to the hospital’s dock. This service is much better positioned with a distributor as they have the systems and visibility to manage this process and it’s a byproduct of their own service to their customers. O&M also tracks and verifies customer contracted purchases at contracted prices and volumes. They also monitor agreements between end users and manufacturers. O&M is also adding warehousing and transportation services for their customers. They handle receiving, put-away, tracking, order management and shipping for their customers while carrying......

Vices Among Minors

...Vice is a practice or a behavior or habit considered immoral, depraved, or degrading in the associated society. In more minor usage, vice can refer to a fault, a negative character trait, a defect, an infirmity, or merely a bad habit). Vices are habits and activities that are not beneficial to an individual. It usually produces negative consequences- in the physical, emotional, mental and social aspect of a person. The generation today is facing a great ideal of vices like drug addiction, smoking, computer games, social networking, gambling, pre- marital sex, pornography and drinking which has become more accessible to the public. It would suggest that vices are common among these people because of the age proper and the independence from parents.3Vices may inhibit the productivity and further effectiveness of a student, since they take time, concentration and financial resources. 4 Vices that the researchers would want to tackle are alcoholism, smoking , computer games and gambling because these vices are the most common and prevalent among the MMC - CAST students. Alcohol dependence, or alcoholism, is a long-term physical condition characterized by compulsive drinking, which a person is unable to control ( Grand et. al.., 2004) College is a prime time and place for drinking. Although frequent drinking is common at this age,college students tend to drink more frequently and more heavy than their non collegiate peers (SAMHSA,2004b) Alcohol alters the brain’s......

Minor Parties: Past and Present

...Minor Parties: Past and Present Throughout the history of American politics, there have been countless political parties that have formed, disbanded, and evolved, and nearly all of them have helped shape today’s American political structure in some way. These groups have made significant contributions to American politics and have both directly and indirectly impacted election outcomes. In both the 1912 and the 1968 presidential elections, minor party candidates not only secured a significant amount of support, but influenced drastic change in political views and processes in the United States. In addition to these historical examples, minor parties continue to have a significant role in American politics, and in the 2012 Presidential Election, the Libertarian and Green Parties both nominated candidates that had potential to make a significant impact. Many scholars today believe minor parties only to be “spoilers” in presidential elections; they say that they merely take enough votes away from one candidate to cause the other candidate to win the election (Trautman, 2014). While this does occur, minor parties have a much greater impact on American politics than as merely election spoilers. They often present issues that are important to the American populous that may be overlooked by the large political machines that are the Democratic and Republican parties. After the major parties study these issues, often they consider them in the presentation of their party platform......

Trying Minors as Adults

...controversial topic that people seem to be very passionate about. The rate of minors committing horrendous crimes has been on a steady rise for the past couple of decades (DOJ National Report Series Bulletin, 2011). There are many differences between the court system for Juveniles and the justice system for adults. In Juvenile courts there are no juries and no trails by jury either. In adult courts the sentencing is much harsher and the chance of getting off the hook with some counseling is very slim. If a juvenile is defined as a person under the age of 18, how can you justify trying them in a court designed for adult offenders? Some juvenile cases get transferred to adult criminal court through a process called a “waiver”—when a judge waives the protections that juvenile court provides (www.ojjdp.gov). Usually, juvenile cases that are subject to waiver involve more serious crimes, or minors who have been in trouble before (nolo.com/juveniles youth adult criminal court). Being tried as an adult gives a juvenile more constitutional protections, but it also has disadvantages such as losing the juvenile protections as well. Depending on the crime of the minor, both court systems can punish the individual, but which court can give the appropriate punishment or the “crime”, not the age of the person committing the crime? The big question now is should we the courts show more sympathy and compassion for the minor who committed the crime or for the victims? In order to......

Phl Minor Essay

...In the Symposium, Plato presents many points on Love (Eros) which are laid out by different speakers in the honor of Agathon. Phaedrus, Aristodemus, Pausanias, Socrates, Agathon, Aristophanes and Eryximachus all dedicated their symposium to the understanding of love by giving their opinion of how a person should commend it. Near the ending of the speech by Socrates, a beautiful, wealthy and drunk Alcibiades enters the event. This triggers the beginning of Alcibiades speech of travesty, which is disguised in praise, reciting the “secret nature” of Socrates to the guests at hand. The purpose of adding Alcibiades’ speech at the end is to display the nuisance with social expectations for love and the inability to meet them. The character of Alcibiades is used to portray the tragic nature of good merit and the tragedy. He is unable to gain virtue through sexual relations, and there for is forced to remain mortal. The purpose of the speech at whole is to celebrate the fertility of heterosexual relationships and how they are justified in giving birth to children. Alcibiades wants to engage in a relationship with Socrates which in terms is a homosexual relationship. To justify homosexual relationships, they would have had to prove them as productive as a heterosexual relationship. Meaning if what a heterosexual relationship can justify through Diotima’s speech is a child and a relationship which can be carried on in the future has to be the same of what a homosexual relationship......
