Subject: Request for Emergency Leave
Dear Mr. Clarke,
I have received your request for emergency leave, dated January 18th through the 19th, for the upcoming weekend. We respect you as an assistant manager, and value the professional dynamic you bring to the workplace. As a family oriented company, we are sympathetic and understand your situation. However, we support the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) which states employees are entitled to take leave due to family or medical emergencies under specific reasons. However, taking medical leave to care for an employee’s grandparents does not fall under the FMLA qualifications. In addition, our company policy, section 4, paragraph 5, states that an employee may not take more than one emergency leave per quarter. You have taken three emergency leaves in the last two months. Therefore, I cannot grant your request for emergency leave at this time.

As you know, this weekend will be busy for the hotel due to the electronic engineer’s conference coming to town on Friday. Therefore, I will need all our full-time staff that is already on the schedule, present and ready to work…...

Row hard enough that your arms fill with cramps and your hair turns white with stress, row until your back pains with your incessant, consistent, ritualistically morbid and mentally dangerous norms. But, row long enough and you will become tired of this ridiculous method of transportation and long for something better, a propellor perhaps to do the rowing for you? And as you sit peacefully behind the wheel of your new vessel, somewhere inside of your newly relaxed mind, ideas emerge, that incredible longing for the different. You may awaken from a restful night of sleep, peer out the window and glimpse this “reality” this life that we have found ourselves with which was built from the backs and necks of our parent’s parents’ parents…etc. and realize many questions that lie just below the surface, these questions of which we are simply unable, until this moment, to ask.

Tragedy of Denial

...Tragedy of Denial Arthur Miller is considered to be one of the greatest play writers of his times. After many years the themes of his plays can still be compared to our every day life. Miller has written his plays filled with drama, tragedy and leaving the reader feeling the emotion of his characters. Miller has used common themes that can be traced through some of his plays; the theme of family and the extent an individual will go to for their family. In three of his plays, Miller demonstrates tragedy wrapped within denial. The three families portrayed in Millers plays, All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, and A View From The Bridge are families that are consumed with denial to cover up and protect against their own guilt and selfish needs. Each of these families have characters who display such strong denial believing they are doing what is best for their family. However, when taking a closer look, what is reviled is failure and justifications to protect what is best for them selves. In All My Sons by Arthur Miller, the characters forming the Keller family are living in the 1940’s, a time where financial stability seemed out of reach. Joe Keller who is a father, husband, and business owner, is one of the main characters in this play. Joe is able to provide his family with the financial stability he has wanted but at a high cost. With one bad decision, Joe committed a crime that he never thought would affect his family directly. Joe allowed the defective airplane......

League of Denial Report

...The League of Denial is an exposé on the NFL’s handling of medical research on concussions, specifically Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The documentary, put together by investigative reporters Mark Fanairu-Wada and Steve Fanairu, details the different suppression and negligence of the research being done on the effects of concussive hits in football. One of the most telling storylines in the documentary is the one that revolves around Dr. Bennet Omalu and Mike Webster. Mike Webster was a Hall of Famer for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 1970s. After his career was over, he began to experience a personality change. He was losing his memory, and according to his wife, he started to garner anger issues. Webster died at the age of 50. After Webster’s death, Dr. Bennet Omalu performed an autopsy on him. Omalu examined Webster’s brain, and found it to be severely atrophied. Omalu then began a quest to find the answers on why Webster’s brain was so atrophied. Upon further investigation, Omalu found that this was a recurring disease in athletes who are involved in contact sports (football, wrestling, hockey, etc.). This was the inception of CTE, which is only diagnosable in an autopsy post-mortem. Omalu then brought his evidence to the NFL, which gave him the figurative cold shoulder. They would not take Omalu seriously, and took steps to discredit him. After a long fight, Omalu took a break in trying to convince the......

...compensation are tied to a benchmark, companies must disclose where actual payments and awards fall within the targeted range and, if applicable, the reason for any compensation amounts that fall outside the targeted range. 2.4 Disclosure of Performance Targets Companies must disclose company and individual performance targets for incentive compensation and the actual achievement level against the targets if they are material elements of the company’s compensation policies and decisions, unless the disclosure would result in competitive harm to the company. 6 EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION DISCLOSURE HANDBOOK Since adoption of the rules, the SEC has consistently focused on this disclosure requirement and to date has issued more comment letters to companies on this item of disclosure than any other. The SEC has also clarified that although the general rules regarding disclosure of non-GAAP financial measures (Regulation G) do not apply to disclosure regarding performance-related target levels, a company must disclose how the target levels are calculated from its audited financial statements. Š Threshold Question Is Materiality. A company must first determine whether performance targets are a material element of the company’s compensation policies and decisions. If performance targets are not material, then the company is not required to disclose them. Whether performance targets are material is a facts-and-circumstances test, which a company must evaluate in good faith. The......

...November carjacking.[5] Trial and appeals The 26-year-old victim picked out Dupree and Massingill from a police lineup, but her male companion did not. Dupree was charged with armed robbery and rape, but was never tried on the rape charge. In 1980, he was convicted and sentenced to 75 years in prison for aggravated robbery. Three of Dupree's appeals were rejected by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals.[1] Two of the appeals were denied because he refused to admit to being a sex offender.[6] He declined early release in 2004 in exchange for attending a treatment program for offenders because he felt it would have amounted to admitting guilt.[4] Dupree later said, "Whatever your truth is, you have to stick with it."[6] Dupree continued to write letters to people and organizations around the state in his bid to prove his innocence.[7] Exoneration In 2006, the Innocence Project took Dupree's case and carried out a forensic examination of the case evidence in 2010.[1] He was represented by a legal team that included project co-founder Barry Scheck.[8] Dupree was paroled in July 2010 and married his longtime fiancée Selma Perkins the day after his release.[6] Soon afterwards,[1] test results indicated that the evidence contained DNA from two men, but not Dupree nor Massingill.[4] Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins stated, "Our Conviction Integrity Unit thoroughly reinvestigated this case, tested the biological evidence and based on the results, concluded Cornelius......

...Letter Dear Mr. President, Civic and political participation is important for citizens because everyone has the responsibility to stand up for what they believe in. Citizens in America enjoy writing letters to important leaders to receive informative feedback on their thoughts. Citizen’s words effect how the laws change in many ways, for example, by voting. Eleanor Roosevelt influenced change through speaking about civil rights. ER was committed to standing up for African American rights. She was so active in racial injustice that the FBI had a 4000 page dossier about ER pertaining to her civil rights activities. “J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI, even speculated that "Negro blood" inspired ER's perverse behavior.” “She was considered America's most influential First Lady, she started new paths for women and led the battle for social justice everywhere. Today she is still a powerful inspiration to leaders in both the civil rights and women's movements. Eleanor shattered the usual submissive mold that the role of the First Lady had traditionally been fashioned, and reshaped it around her own skills and her commitment to social reform. She gave a voice to people who did not have power.” Others benefit from ER’s actions by getting all the credit that she stood up for women and their rights. If it wasn’t for Eleanor’s contributions we women would not get all the credit that we deserve. Eleanor Roosevelt’s deserves a holiday that would celebrate her and all her......

...Alexus Harris January 26, 2010 History 114 2:00 - 2:30 p.m Willie Lynch Letter: The Making of a Slave In the first paragraph of the Willie Lynch Letter introduction, he started thanking the men of the colony of Virginia for inviting him to the bank of the James River. Mr. Lynch was making the men of the plantation think that, installing the chip into the slaves will make everything run easily. He also stated that if the chip were implant into the minds of slaves, Ancient Rome would envy us as black people. Personally, I think the only reason that the Ancient Rome will envy us as slaves, because we let a method of the chip control our mind, body, soul, values, and beliefs. Mr. Lynch also stated that negative differences are better then positive differences. Just think about it. Why? Would Distrust be better then Trust, this is setting our slaves up to be lynch in my eyes. As a slave, you want freedom so; you are going to want your master to trust you so that you can escape. Mr. Lynch finally, said that over time if you constantly used the method for one year, then slaves will already no what they are expecting to perform. In the paragraph “Let’s Make a Slave,” it was focusing on the process of man breaking and slave making. This means that installing the chip into our black men will allow them to become more of a servant that helps the white man lynch other slaves. It also focused on human nature, and slave nature.

The Scarlet Letter

...Regis Hicks ENG 2223 JKYA March 29, 2015 Instructor: Mrs. Wiley Scarlet Letter Essay Some may think evil comes just from the devil and his accomplices. But in actuality, evil lives throughout mankind also. There are several points in “The Scarlet Letter” that reveal the nature of evil: Chillingworth “forcing” Hester to become his wife, Pearl being named a devil child, and Dimmesdale’s denial of Pearl. Chillingworth forced Hester to marry him and took away her youth. “Mine was the first wrong, when I betrayed thy budding youth into a false and unnatural relation with my decay.” (Ch.4) This may be the reason Hester committed the sin she did. While Chillingworth was away, Hester committed adultery with a man she was not to reveal until later on in the novel. It was also said that Chillingworth sent Hester to New England while he remained in Europe. Although Hester did not know if Chillingworth was alive or dead after being captured by Native Americans, when she first saw Chillingworth when he arrived in New England, she did not seem very excited to see him. This looks to be another reason why it is to be believed that Hester was forced to marry Chillingworth. She may not have been happy throughout the entire marriage. She seeks Dimmesdale for the happiness she never received. After the town discovered that Dimmesdale was the man Hester committed adultery with, the Puritans all began to look at Pearl differently. They began calling her the Devil’s Child. None of the......

Leauge of Denial

...,“League of Denial” The NFL Concussion Crisis ave you ever taken the time to consider the consequence? Not the immediate consequence, maybe not even the short term, but the long term consequence of how we as society treat our bodies. For the NFL, its players and “Iron Mike” Webster, the consequence’s became reality on September 24th 2002 when “Iron Mike” meet Dr. Bennnet Omalu as he lay lifeless on a cold autopsy table at the Allegheny County Coroner’s Office. Concussion: a condition resulting from the stunning, damaging, or shattering effects of a hard blow; especially: a jarring injury of the brain resulting in disturbance of cerebral function and sometimes marked by permanent damage ( Concussions have become more prevalent in the National Football League as awareness has risen. There are numerous cases of CTE that have resulted in permanent damage or death over the course of the last 15 years. The reality behind concussions is that there will never be a total solution to the issue, in contact sports the danger will always be there. We must continue to raise awareness and develop protective equipment to minimize the risk. Concussions are one of the leading causes of CTE among all professional athletes toady. Mike Webster retired in 1991 from the NFL and the Pittsburg Steelers after 17 years in the “pit” and made an attempt at a normal life, a short time into this journey it became apparent that “Iron......

Denial of Service Attacks in Network Security

...Denial of service attacks in Network security introduction and short history of DoS attacks: Denial of service attacks are one of the major threat to the modern computer networks.It has been said that first DDoS attack was launched in 1999 against the IRC server of university of minnesota which affected 227 systems and server was down for several days.Another DoS attack was documented in the week of feb 7 2000.A 15 year old canadian hacker named “mafiaboy” performed a series of DoS attack against some sites like ebay and amazon.Companies suffered from 1.7 billion of damage.After that it became the best way of hacking among cybercriminals. People used to perform these attacks for profits.Hackers will follow the procedures like mafiaboy and ask for the money.In 2005 ,it became more easy to implement those attacks ,a boy of 18-yr old named Farid Essabar developed a worm called MyTob which used to open a backdoor in Ms windows hosts and connect to the remote IRC server.The computer then used to wait for the commands from the servers.Farid was arrested for distributing the worm.This was surely not the last case.DDoS attacks were used to attack and money extortion. As name suggests Denial of Service aka DoS, it’s main objective is to make the system to deny the legitimate service requests. Basically DoS attacks are performed by exhausting the resources of the computer like processing power,network bandwidth,TCP connection and service buffers,CPU cycles and so on.Hackers......

The Letter a

...I constructed the letter A. The way I built my letter resembled an isoceles triangle. My letter has two sides that are the same length and two of base angles are the same in length. The definintion of an isoceles triangle is a triangle with two sides of equal length and two congruent base angles. The letter A I built and isoceles triangle are almost a perfect match. Another geometry concept that connectes with my letter, A was an acute angle. An acute angle is an angle that is less than 90 degrees. The triangle inside the letter A I constructed has an acute angle. The triangle has 3 angles that are acute all are less than 90 degrees and will add up to 180 degrees. The final concept I thought my letter connects with is parallel lines. The two lines in the center of the letter A are parallel to eachother, the two lines will never cross eachother or intersect. Parallel lines are lines in a plane that will not touch, cross, or intersect even when the lines are extended. The two lines in the center are not the only ones that are parallel to each other, the one line on top of my letter and the other thats on the bottom are also parallel. Those are the three geometry concepts I thought my letter connected with. My first semester of geometry did not go as well as I would have liked it to go. I failed most of the tests and quizzes because I was not responsible and did not do the homework assigned and study the reviews given. Despite all my failures this semester I always went to......
