According to article 1 section 8 states that “The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States”. Every tax bill passed must be approved by the US congress and also sent to the president of the United States and become a law. They have the power to create tax laws.

According to ushistory.org, “Before a bill becomes a law it must pass both houses of Congress and signed into law by the President. It may begin its journey at any time, but it must be passed during the same congressional session of its proposal, a period of one year. If it does not complete the process, it is dropped, and can only be revived through reintroduction and going through the whole process again”. Before the bills become law, they go through a committee consideration and floor debate. In most cases both stages are important in successfully becoming a bill. http://www.ushistory.org/gov/6e.asp The Common body tax laws are made up of the internal Revenue Code, Treasury Regulations, Court Cases, and the IRS. It is governed by regulations created by the IRS. According to the lawdictionary.org, “it is the legal framework that denotes the taxing authority and regulations of a given country's tax laws. The term is most often used to describe the framework that governs the American tax code. Since there are several key agencies that have the authority to levy taxes, penalties, fees and other duties on American citizens, the Common Body of Tax Law is quite complex”.

...relationship reforming. Ms Rizzo refused these requests. Attending at her place of work and approaching her in the car park at night. Threatening Tania on one occasion that he would kill her and take the kids. This disclosure was made by Ms Simpson, as far as is known, only to one friend in the context of being asked why security was so important to her when searching for a new apartment. • • The disclosure made by Ms Simpson in the last point above was very much the exception. She told others of her concern that Mr Rogers was not looking after the children properly rather than any fear for her safety. Indeed fears for her own safety were never raised with her immediate family, police or counsellors. The evidence heard at the inquest suggests Ms Simpson did not fear face to face contact with Mr Rogers, even alone, at any time. Contact with QPS On 15 February 2011 Julie Simpson left the unit complex where Ms Simpson and her children were staying. She drove to Broadbeach where she and Mr Simpson had temporarily moved. It became apparent a vehicle was following her. She recognised it as the Holden Viva Station Wagon of Mr Rogers. She confronted him and demanded to know why he was following her. He denied he was and concocted a story about meeting a male friend at the set of units outside which he had parked. Julie Simpson pressed him on this claim to the point of demanding he produce the friend. Mr Rogers kept up his charade, knocking on the door of an apartment only......

...Wal-Mart. If you are, ask them why they go. The universal answer probably with be because everything is cheaper at Wal-Mart. You can then ask should Wal-Mart do whatever they can to reduce their prices. Again they would say yes within the law. At this point you could ask why don’t the employees quit if they are not been treated properly. The likely response is that for many of these workers this could be the only job available and/or the highest paying job in the local community. The thread of the discussion is that the employees need Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart needs the employees. The only difference is that Wal-Mart has absolute bargaining power with its employees like it does with its suppliers. Every single supplier and employee needs Wal-Mart more than Wal-Mart needs the employee and the supplier. Of course, Wal-Mart knows this and, therefore, will always negotiate for a position of power. Wal-Mart makes it very clear when an associate is hired that the firm is committed to lower the cost of production. As a result, no employee should be surprised when Wal-Mart does whatever it can to reduce costs. Questions 1. Are the ethical issues Wal-Mart faces really any different from other large retailers? 2. Wal-Mart officials have stated that they don’t feel women are interested in management positions at the company. Do you agree or disagree? 3. Wal-Mart is continually criticized for its health-care policy. Is this really an ethical issue? Why or why not? 4. Should......

I am honestly not sure if I used the bottom up or top down approach. I just looked at it and did what made sense to me. Based on the data type and general knowledge of books in relation to authors, I based my relationship on the principle that 1 book must have at least 1 or more authors.

...became Surintendent des Finances (finance minister and banker to the king) in 1653 (Ayers 368). Fouquet believed he deserved a château built after him when he had achieved great prestige (Ayers 368). A few years later, Fouquet’s château was famous for the extravagant parties thrown there (Ayers 368). The last party Fouquet held was on August 17, 1661 given in honor of King Louis XIV who had just established his reign (Ayers 368). The party contained roughly 6,000 people with firework displays and a lavish supper (Ayers 368). Two weeks later; however, “livid with jealousy at Fouquet’s display of power, wealth, and prestige” King Louis XIV ordered for the arrest of Fouquet under a charge of “embezzlement of state funds” (Ayers 368). Making sure that Fouquet would never return, King Louis XIV decided to sentence him to “life of imprisonment in solitary confinement” (Ayers 368). Nicolas Fouquet’s “destiny was directly linked with the building of Vaux, whose splendor was the catalyst of his downfall” (Atchley 1). Figure 11 (Portrait of Nicolas Fouquet) Figure 11 (Portrait of Nicolas Fouquet) Today, Cristina and Patrice de Vogüé are the owners of the château and continue to work on the preservation of the château (Castle 1). Although it is a bit difficult to find one’s way to Vaux-Le-Vicomte, the château offers tours of the vicinity on foot and on wheel (Castle). Given primary credit for the architecture, Louis Le Vau, his work......

...cognitive effect for this film I would say is low to moderate. The film follows a flow that explains the struggles of Antwone, but I think it takes high mental maturity to really understand what is going on and why he has been affected by an abusive past. This movie makes you think of the characters that are being played and of how bad Antwone has it. It makes you feel a certain way for certain characters throughout the movie. I don’t think a younger person would be able to realize what is really going on without having the mental maturity and knowledge about abuse, mentally, physically, and sexually. I also feel like maybe there is knowledge needed on slavery. For example, Mrs. Tate had three foster kids, Keith, Dwight, and Antwone, and she never called them by their first name, she called them all “nigga”. She called them “nigga” so much that in the movie there was a quote saying that they knew who she was talking to based on the way she said “nigga”. Also it takes high cognitive literacy to understand some of the scenes of abuse like when he was beat on, tied up, and even figuring out an underlying problem of the issue of Mr. Davenport. The relationship between Mr. Davenport(Denzel) and his wife has issues and it take high literacy to understand what’s going on and why they are so distant towards each other, the scene of them having dinner on the table opens that issue up. Also cognitively, Antwone liking a girl, someone would have to understand how different it is......

Sure Thing

...Sure Thing Paper The play Sure Thing, by David Ives, reveals the variations of boy, Bill, meets girl, Betty, and the ensuing pick up lines. The central theme throughout the play displays multiple varieties of a possible conversation that ends with a ringing bell that symbolizes a fresh start and a second chance to make a good impression. What results is a very funny sequence; a series of opportunities, of near misses, of crashing abject failures as Bill tries to engage Betty’s attention. Body language, communication, and first impressions are just a few factors that we can use to help start a new relationship if we use it right. When Betty is alone in the cafe reading her book one can assume she doesn’t want to be bothered just by looking at her. As Bill comes up to her and interrupts her reading the first couple of times Betty doesn’t want anything to do with him. But when Betty finally tells him he can sit down with her she still continues reading, not wanting to have a conversation. Body language is everything. It’s more important than words, more important than routines, and even more important than physical appearance. Bill should have known just by getting a glimpse of Betty that she didn’t want to be bothered. Solid body language is the best way to make a strong first impression. According to Joe Navarro (2008), who specializes in the area of nonverbal communication or body language, body language......

Sure Thing

...In The Play "Sure Thing" (Ives, p. 643), the characters Bill and Betty are strangers looking for a connection. Taking a chance, they engage in conversation as a bell rings they change their stories in each conversation if it does not lean towards a perfect match. Bill reinvents himself on multiple occasion to impress Betty for her approval. Testing the waters with Betty, he asks a series of silly questions and even makes a few statements in hopes to get the right response from her such as, “I believe that a man is what he is. (Bell.) A person is what he is. (Bell.) A person is . . . what they are. So what if I admire Trotsky? (Bell.) So what if I once had a total-body liposuction? (Bell.) So what if I don't have a penis? (Bell.) So what if I once spent a year in the Peace Corps? I was acting on my convictions. Nope. Straight-down-the-ticket Republican. (Bell.)Straight-down-the-ticket Democrat.(Bell.)Can I tell you something about politics? (Bell.) I like to think of myself a citizen of the universe. (Bell.) I'm unaffiliated. (Ives, p.646) I believe the question that he asks is the anxiety that we put on ourselves as society when we are out on a first date. We want the other person to like us, so we ask questions to have an understanding of the other person. Each scene starts over at the ring of the bell, I believe the bell ringing gives them the opportunity to correct any mistakes they may have made. This allows them to reinvent themselves going back to the part of the......

According to the case and related exhibits, AS was successful in achieving this aim. Secondly, in the case of reporting objectives one can see that AS conducted internal audits with the aim of providing non-financial information. The audits seemed to have reliable information, as they detected fraud in earlier stages, but this was simply ignored or not followed up by the management. The third objective of compliance with laws and other regulation cannot be properly determined with the information provided. According to KPMG's statement, it appeared to be not a main objective of the company, as the management was inconsistent in their......

...The behavioral challenge that I choose is to not consume any red meat for the next two weeks. The reason why I picked this challenge verses all the other ones is because this one will require the most effort and time. Using reusable water bottles, reducing shower time and turning all electronic devices is much simpler than making time to plan out meals every day and avoiding a specific food that I am used to always eating every day. This means that I will have to look for alternative meals and recipes that do not have meat since a lot of the things that I know how to cook contain red meat. At home my family has red meat for dinner at least 4 days a week so that means I will have to avoid it and cook my self something else for dinner. Also my favorite foods when I go out to eat are always the red meat options so it will be difficult changing it up and trying out other food options at my favorite places to eat. Overall the biggest challenge will be the thought of not being able to have red meat. Right now it doesn’t seem as challenging as I think it will be but in reality I think I will be craving red meat half halfway down this challenge and will want to give up. The consumption of meat has a drastic effect in our environment. There are many ways that the consumption of red meat affects our environment for example, when land is used to raise animals instead of crops, precious water and soil are lost. Another thing that occurs is that many trees are cut down to make land for......
