24 Analysis In episode one of season four of 24, Jack starts the episode with he doesn’t want to do field work anymore, he likes where he is with the Secretary of the state’s daughter. He wants a life again without worrying about if he is going to live through the day. Also, in this episode the Secretary would rather have the Presidents and his reputation than to listen to what his son has to say. Every time he mentioned that it would hurt them, he didn’t notice how his son felt. The Turkish family showed how a lot of family should be, except they were working in America only to set up a plan. They were here for a purpose so they didn’t want their son talking to anyone including the girl he had befriended. Later in the episode, Jack had to go back to the CTU and he tried helping out Driscol, but she didn’t want to listen to him. So Jack broke protocol, broke into the interrogation room, and shot the detainee in the knee to get the important information that he needed. Which was, that the attack wasn’t the train blowing up, it was kidnapping the secretary of the state. I believe that Jack had his mind set on not being on the field anymore, so that he can try and make a new family, and be home more often. That is until he got back into the CTU for a contract debriefing with Driscol. He then realized he could help figure out the problem they were facing, and he felt good about it. He enjoys helping people, and he enjoys being a part of the CTU team. Jack will do whatever he can to make sure that he gets the information he wants. Even if that means breaking protocol and shooting a guy in the knee. Jack cares for his family and friends and he would do anything to make sure they stayed safe, he also has a strong bond with keeping his loyalty with the United States, and keeping the people safe here as well.

1 Samuel 24

...1 Samuel 24 Verses 1-5 Whenever God delivers our enemies into our hands, we are presented with a challenge on how to deal with them. Are we going to act wisely? Are we going to do the right thing? How is the Christian way of dealing with them? These are only some of the questions that we always need to consider. David cut off the skirt of Saul's robe but he did not kill him. We may be tempted, but we are never to cut off someone's life. Verse 6-15 Jesus Christ has died for all the sins of men. No matter if they are our worst enemies; they are still God's creations that are endowed with life. And the power of the blood of Jesus Christ still stands on the road to their redemption. We are to love the sinners and to hate their sins. David did the right thing in not laying a hand unto Saul. This situation is also applicable to the leaders of our nation. It may be a mistake to harm their clothing by always saying negative things about them and even cursing them. But still, we are never to lay a hand on them. We still need to submit to their God-given authority. Verses 16-18 Good deeds can be more powerful than inflicting harm to people. We can actually kill people with our kindness. It may not mean physical death, but more significantly, it can destroy people's pride, arrogance and evil intentions. The weeping of Saul is only an expression of humility and brokenness. What can be more righteous than returning good for evil? Indeed, this deadly weapon shall be highly......

The World Ending in 24 Hours

...The World Ending in 24 Hours An extremely loud sounding siren is going off and nobody knows why. Therefore we turned on the news to realize that there is a massive asteroid heading for earth and will hit us in 24 hours from now. As soon as everyone heres the news panic and screaming erupts. Many are crying or just simply sitting in shock of what is happening. As soon as I here the news I gather with my family. I would start by going out to a nice breakfast with everyone and talk about the good times we've all had. We also would forgive one another if we ever put someone through a hard time. After breakfast we would do things that we had put off before, such as going to church. We would all pray to god to forgive our sins and hope for a peaceful afterlife. After church I would then contact the rest of my friends and family to thank you for all the things they have done for me and the kindness they have shown me. After contacting everyone I possibly could, I’d take my family out to the best and most expensive restaurant around. I would tell each person how much they mean to me and how important they were to me in my life. After dinner I would take my family outside to look up at the stars to enjoy a beautiful view before the end. When the asteroid was in sight we all just hugged, shut our eyes and waited in silence....

Journal 24

...Journal 24 1.The most challenging course I’m taking this semester believe is math. I don’t think there is anything wrong with the instructor or the textbook. The main reason I believe this course is hard for me is that I get confused with certain steps and I sometimes don’t do my homework. If I dedicated more time, then maybe math would not be my hardest course this semester. 2.Read all your textbook assignments carefully, creating well organized notes that identify the key points. • Practice using the course information or skills outside the class. • Teach what you are learning to someone else. • Think about the content creatively (how could I adapt this?)And metaphorically. (what is this like?) Journal 25 1. I am currently off course in math. My desired outcome is to get on course with the class and pass it. The experience I am learning from this is that I must do my work on time, not procrastinate and ask for help when I need it. Right now I am doing what I can do to catch up and get back on course. 2. The feedback that informs me that I’m off course is that I am a couple of sections behind the rest of the class and the teacher has informed me that I am behind. The reason I believe is that I tend to put off doing my home work and that is my present way of doing things. 3. New ways of thinking, feeling, doing or believing that I will do differently is just do the complete opposite of what I’m doing now and I will do better in college. 4. Don’t take......

Exodus 24 School of the Prophets

...Prophets Exodus 24 Context: After Moses explains the Laws by which the Children of Israel must live by (Exodus 20-23), Israel accepts the laws and enters into a covenant with the Lord. Their covenant is ratified and sanctified through a performed sacrifice. After Israel accepts the terms of the Lord’s words, Moses, Aaron, two sons of Aaron (Nadab, Abihu) and 70 other elders of Israel see God in order to more fully testify of him. Moses was then called up into the mount and dwelt with God for forty days and forty nights. There, he received the stone tablets where upon the Lord wrote his law for the Children of Israel. Questions that the Verses Answer: 1. Who did the Lord tell Moses to take with him to worship afar off? (24:1) 2. Who was not allowed to come near unto the Lord? (24:2) 3.

Unit 24 P1

...Unit 24 - Assignment 1 Introduction For this assignment I will be describing the elements of a crime which are Mens Rea and Actus Reus. Mens Rea is Latin for 'guilty mind' and it is the mental thinking behind the crime which has been committed, it refers to the intentions of the person who committed the crime. For example, when someone commits theft their intention is to permanently deprive the owner/s of the object. Actus Reus is Latin for 'guilty act' and it can either be an act or a failure to act. For example, when someone commits theft they must've physically taken something. The three C's of Actus Reus must be taken into account when investigating a crime they are: • Conduct - this is the act of damaging or destroying something/someone. • Circumstances - this is the fact that the property must belong to another. • Consent - this is the resulting damage or destruction of the act. Causation Causation, also known as result crimes is when a consequence has come about as a result of the Actus Reus being committed. When establishing causation the first step is to ask 'was the defendant's act a cause in the fact of the specified consequence?' This can be answered by asking 'But for what the defendant did would the consequence have occurred?' If the answer is YES then the result wouldn't have occurred if not for the defendant's acts and, therefore causation is established. A case which shows the chain of causation is the case of R v White (1910) the defendant put......

Store 24

...Store24? Doucette wants to decide whether or not to put an employee retention program in place. But first, he wants Sarah Jenkins to check whether manager tenure and crew tenure are related to store profit. Accordingly, run the three regression models per instructions given below; data for these 3 models is in the worksheet labeled Data for Case A. Important note: For all regression models, use a 5% significance level Model 1: Run a full model for profit that includes both tenure and site location related variables. Tenure related variables are MTenure and CTenure. Site location related variables are population, number of competitors, street level visibility, pedestrian access, type of neighborhood, and whether a store stays open 24 hours. These variables are also defined on page 4 of the case Store24 (A). Question Interpret the coefficients for MTenure and CTenure in model 1. Which of the two variables contributes more to profits (i.e. which one has a greater $ impact)? A common way of determining the relative importance of two independent variables is by assessing the incremental r-squared attributable to that variable. The following two models (Models 2 and 3) allow us determine the relative importance of manager and crew tenure in predicting profits at Store24. Model 2: Run a model for profit with all of the independent variables from model 1 other than managerial tenure. The difference between the adjusted r-squared values for Models 1 and 2......

Unit 24 P4&P5

...Unit 24: P4 & P5 P4 - Describe the importance of referral to other organisations. P5 - Describe potential boundary issues that could occur in a helping relationship. The referral to other organisations means to see whether the patient needs counselling at all or needs another professional for their problems, such as a psychologist, doctor, hypnotist or doctor etc. It is important to refer the client to other organisations because they may need help from different medical service sectors, for example the client may have an eating disorder therefor they are obese and they end up seeing a counsellor about their problem, which doesn’t make much sense, this is why the referral system is crucial so instead of the client going to the wrong service, they can go to a physiotherapist and help them overcome their obesity. There are many protocols assessed before giving a client a referral, they make sure the urgency of referral is determined by several factors such as; level of risk involved, wishes of client, immediate nature of the demands for the service and wishes of clients family, friends guardians etc. They also have to make sure that the certain type of service they refer the client to will benefit them and help them rehabilitate themselves to get over their problems. In conclusion it is important that the client gets referred to the proper professional to help them with their dilemma, however the client is entitled to know what kind of professional they are being......

...Case 2 Store 24 Maastricht University, School of Business and Economics Course: Management Control EBC 4154 Introduction Most of the executives of Store24, a New England based convenience store, were gathered for an important meeting to discuss a way to increase store level employees retention. Some of the suggestions were to increase wages and bonuses, training enhancements or career development programs. However, top management lacked sufficient information available that would explained the relationship between manager and crew tenure on store level financial performance. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to shed light on the “employee tenure-store level performance” relationship as well as to discover how managerial skill, service quality and profit are related. 1. The Relationship between Employee Tenure and Operating Performance Before exploring the relationship between store level financial performance and other relevant site factors, it is essential to establish a measure for store level performance. Internal analysis collected sales and profit data for 75 stores. Based on Appendix A, one can conclude that these variables are highly correlated and significant (i.e. r = 0,924, p-value = 0,000) Ultimately, profit is used as a proxy for store level performance, since it takes into account both, the costs as well as the revenues of making the sales. Despite the lack of objective evidence on the importance of employee tenure, Store24 has awarded managers...

Ms. Smalley’s employer has offered an early retirement incentive by agreeing to pay her $180,000 today if she agrees to retire immediately. Ms. Smalley desires to earn a rate of return of 12 percent. a. Assuming that the retirement benefit is the only consideration in making the retirement decision, should Ms. Smalley accept her employer’s offer? 300000/1.12= 267857.14 Ms. Smalley should not accept the employers offer when only considering the retirement compensation because the future payout is equivalent to a higher present value. b. Identify the factors that cause the present value of the retirement benefit to be less than $300,000. The time value of money concept is what causes the present value of the retirement compensation to be worth less than its future value. 4 Exercise 24-5A determining net present value Transit Shuttle Inc. is considering investing in two new vans that are expected to generate combined cash inflows of $20,000 per year.

... Inference: The R square value of 0.41 signifies a better explanatory power than Ctenure. The p-value 0.0025 lies within a high significance level of 0.05 so the null hypothesis holds and the regression result is significant. So the tenure of a manager is one of the key drivers of store profitability. (D) REGRESSION OF PROFITABILITY WITH LOCATION PARAMETERS Inference: The R square value of 0.95 is very high and signifies that strong fit of points on the regression line. The p-values of all the parameters namely the population within a half mile radius, competitors per 10000 people within that radius, visibility of the store front, pedestrian traffic volume and indicators for 24 hours open or not and location do not lie within significance level of 0.05 so the alternative hypothesis holds and the regression result is insignificant. Hence, on a multivariate basis the factors are not found to be as effective a manager’s tenure. Moreover, multi-co linearity exists which shows the dependence of the factors on one another. For instance, population and pedestrian count are dependent. Also, the visibility of a store front may depend upon its location. Conclusion We can infer from the analysis above that the most relevant factor for the profitability of a store is the tenure of a manager. The tenure of crew member was not found to be a significant factor. The location parameters were also found to be less relevant. ...
