OUTLINE FOR TRIANGLE

Misery lane-Manhattan’s Charity piers was where the bodies were laid out whenever disaster struck.
March 26, 1911-makeshift morgue at end of pier where 100 women and two dozen men were laid out.
March 25, 1911- Triangle fire took place. Most important and deadliest work place disaster for 90 yrs. Fire lasted ½ hour. 146 dead.
Workplace safety was scarcely regulated, workmens comp was considered newfangled or socialist.
Triangle fire was different because it was the crucial moment in a change of events-events that forced fundamental reforms fro the political machinery of New York, and, after New York the nation,
America experienced a huge immigration, transfer of brain and labor power from abroad (especially from Europe)
Max Blanck and Isaac Harris: prominent immigrant factory owners
‘Born in Russia, both men had immigrated to the United States in the early 1890s, and, like hundreds of thousands of other Jewish immigrants, they had both begun working in the garment industry. After a decade, the two men entered a partnership that would propel their careers and earn them the nickname of New York's "Shirtwaist Kings." T hey decided to enter a partnership that would capitalize on Blanck's business sense and Harris' industry expertise. In 1900, they founded the Triangle Waist Company and opened their first shop on Wooster Street. At the turn of the century, the shirtwaist was a new item. arris and Blanck moved their company to the ninth floor of the brand new Asch building on the corner of Washington Square in Greenwich Village. Harris designed the layout of the sewing floor himself, placing the tables in a way that would minimize conversation among the workers in an effort to increase productivity. In 1906, the successful company expanded to the eighth floor. sales at the Triangle Factory hit the $1 million mark. Harris and Blanck…...

...A Meditation on the Triangle Fire The Triangle fire was one of the worst fires in American history. This tragic event truly changed American history. Government then saw that they had to enforce rules for a safer working environment. The triangle fire happened right at the time that the workers were on strike for better working conditions. The triangle fire happened in the efforts to unionize and during the strikes for better working conditions. Most factory workers at this time were on strike because the working conditions were terrible in the building in wit they worked in. the triangle factory is a factory were they make shirtwaist with was very popular at this time. This factory was on Greenwich Village with is in New York City, New York. The factory was located in the Asch building at 23-29 Washington place in a building known as the brown building. At this factory the docked workers whenever they messed up a piece of fabric and had them work long hours. In the triangle factory they only had two exits in the whole place and one of the exits was closed off because the bosses didn’t want the workers to start stealing the fabrics. In addition to this they also only had one water bucket to put out a fire with and it was on the seventh and eighth floor so it is not like if it was a fire the workers could just run out of the building. The workers were starting to make workers unions against the factory bosses. Unions are when people get together to fight one common......

The Fraud Triangle

...The Fraud Triangle 9/22/2012 Allison Walton | The Fraud Triangle The fraud triangle are conditions for fraud arising from fraudulent financial reporting and misappropriation of assets. These conditions are: a. Incentive/Pressure b. Opportunities c. Attitude/Rationalization The fraud triangle is depicted by the following image: Incentive/Pressure Management or other employees will have incentives or circumstances of pressure to commit fraud. If the decision is made by management to report fraudulent financial statements, the most common reason for this will be threat by economic, industry or entity operating conditions to the financial stability and profitability of the company. Excessive pressure is placed on management to meet the forecast of an analyst, company projections or to repay debt obligations. The personal net worth of the stockholders and board of directors may be materially threatened by the company’s financial performance, and management may feel obligated to meet these demands. Management may inflate stock prices to preserve their reputation and be required to do whatever it takes to meet the goal. The bonuses of management may be tied to the company’s earnings and this is a big motivator for fraudulent reporting (Fox School of Business 2009). The misappropriation of assets in a company may be done because of personal financial pressure such as a home foreclosure, or a non-sharable problem such as drug use or gambling debts (Wells......

Bermuda Triangle

...Bermuda Triangle The legend of the Bermuda Triangle or commonly known as the “Devils Triangle” probably started sometime around 1945, when a squadron of five Navy Avenger airplanes disappeared on a training flight, since then unexplained disappearances in the Bermuda triangle have been reported. In 1958 A Douglas DC-3 aircraft containing 32 people went missing, no trace of the aircraft was ever found. Similarly, in 1955 a yacht was found that had survived three hurricanes but was missing all its crew. What is that is doing all this is it some supernatural power or some sensible scientific reason behind this. We've all heard myths about compasses in the Bermuda Triangle spinning wildly out of control, or airplanes and ships just vanishing from the radar and nothing not even the wreckage was ever found, similarly stories of alien abduction of humans and UFO sightings add to the drama. Scientists and geologist have tried to give all these claims a rational reason. Firstly the area of Bermuda triangle is home to the Puerto Rico trench, the deepest point in the Atlantic Ocean furthermore it is frequently hit by strong hurricanes, wind storms and huge tidal waves these two things work simultaneously with the crazy weather bringing down the vessel and taking it deep into the ocean, so deep that it is almost impossible to find it. Secondly, deep beneath the surface of the Bermuda Triangle lie pockets of trapped methane gas, this methane gas could bubble to the surface, reducing the...

“the Triangle Fire”

...Jalissa Shackleford Professor Prumith History 2112 sect. 10 November 14, 2012 “The Triangle Fire” In many cases in the nineteen-hundreds women were the main caregivers for the families rather than the men. Women would also slave for hours upon hours at work for the littlest pay you can imagine. When they did bring home a check it would all go to maintain the household, get food and other things that men should have been responsible for. Women were getting tired of working hard for no pay. After the 1911 fire of the Triangle Waist Factory women felt it was time to speak out. Once women did this it made them feel empowered and they had an equal chance to get what they never had. In the early 1900 a women did not get as equal rights as men especially in the work place. They often worked many long grueling hours of overtime and never got the right pay they deserved for it. Some women would work more than 120 hours a week and would never see the same pay as man would if a man worked that many hours. To add on to the already hard working hours, most of the times in the work place women were treated like dogs. They were repeatedly treated like the machines they were running. The bosses would yell at them curse at them and even call them names that were too unbearable to mention. Most young women were dissatisfied with the way they were being treated. One evening in September many young women went to secret meeting of the International Ladies Garment Workers Union......

Fraud Triangle

...Fraud triangle model is considerably suitable in analyzing the behavior of the two main individuals-Stanley Goldblum and Fred Levin-in this case. The first condition is pressure, which is the incentive and motivation for fraud commitment (Marhsall, XXX). The temptation of high stock price in order to launch stock for stock basis acquisition and receive bonuses is the main financial pressure for Goldblum and Levin to create fake policies and manipulate their firms’ financial reports. In addition, the greedy and overbearing nature also contributed to the fraud. When Levin found out the employees using computer program to create fake policies, he encouraged the programmers’ behavior instead of stopping them. The second condition of fraud triangle is opportunities. These include the failure of auditing, poor internal control and supervision of board of directors, which all have been explained in the previous paragraph. The last condition, rationalization, also played an important part in this scandal. The managers and the employees all believed what they have done were for the better development for the company and rationalize away their integrity. They all forgot they have the corporate responsibility for the stakeholders and were inconsistent with ethical principles such as honesty and respect for its customers. As for the economic aspect, American middle class had been suffering in the stagflation economy condition due to poor monetary control. The high inflation rate......

Fraud Triangle

...INTRODUCTION   There was large actual deficit of 12.1$ found in Violet Bay. A special grand jury investigation then uncovered numerous internal control problems that contributed to the deficit. In this memorandum, I will discuss Violet Bay School District’s control systems. I will evaluate the control system using the framework in COSO framework and identify control mechanisms. I will also address the components of the fraud triangle that were present at VBSD. EVALUATION OF CONTROL SYSTEM   VBSD does not create a good control environment with commitment and ethical values well demonstrated. Otherwise, Spigot, the superintendent, acts as having a “dictatorial management style” Although, there is reporting structure established, however, neither Robertson nor Spigot conformed to it. Spigot executes the contract before the City Office’s proposal. For the Risk Assessment, VBSD has unrealistic assumptions used in preparation of the operating budget. Instead of identifying and analyzing risks, the CFO tried to ignore the risks. Furthermore, VBSD lacks control activities and communication systems. To be exact, firstly, there is no effective way to track budget and payroll expenditures. Also, VBSD needs more strict policies and procedures to execute proposal such as the large transfers. For the communication, the current reporting system is not so effective. The deficit information was not conveyed to the School Board as soon as possible. Nearly all the communication process......

...The Rhetorical Triangle Unit 1 IP Romeo McIver AIU Online University Abstract This paper will discuss the effectiveness and the differences of the two videos I viewed; “The Heart Truth for Women” and “Create the Life You Love” by BeautiControl. I will explain whether or not they were successful or not successful in their presentation, provide examples why one video presentation was more effective. The term rhetoric is used to describe the effectiveness of language and how incorporating certain aspects into writing and speech can lead to improved clarity and persuasion. If used correctly, rhetoric should include ethos, pathos, and logos, also known as the rhetorical triangle, in order to have a well rounded argument. Although opinions on the 'real' definition of rhetoric differ, overall it means correct usage of structure, argument, and support to create an overall understanding of the point the writer or speaker is trying to convey. Both videos were very informative; Create the Life You Love speaker was very clear on the subject of flexibility and financial freedom of women creating their own destiny with opportunities that are truly limitless. The video was very successful because the speaker...

Fraud Triangle

...Worldcom Fraud Investigation Use the Fraud Triangle and Fraud Scale to critically analyse the actions of Bernie Ebbers and Scott Sullivan during the WorldCom saga/ What does your analysis suggest? Dennis Greer’s fraud triangle is a key framework in analysing the ‘factors that cause someone to commit occupational fraud’ (ACFE-The Fraud Triangle, Association of Certified Fraud, Examiners Available from:http://www.acfe.com/fraud-triangle.aspx [January 2014]). The three elements that make up the model are perceived pressure, perceived opportunity and rationalisation. In reference to the events of WorldCom, which has been labelled to date, ‘one of the biggest accounting scandals in history’ (CNN Money- WorldCom’s Financial Bomb, Available from:http://money.cnn.com/2002/06/25/news/worldcom/. [June 2002]) the initial pressures that were the driving force behind the actions of CEO, Bernie Ebbers and CFO Scott Sullivan are quite vast. Firstly Ebbers, was faced with the managerial strain of financial pressure on management due to the decline in the economic environment and the high expectations of Wall Street. As a result, he was aware that the key to growth was in acquisition and mergers, which required an illusion of a solid investment portfolio and therefore ‘a heavy dependence on the performance of WorldCom shares’ (Forbes- Bernie Ebbers Guilty, Available from: http:// www.forbes.com/2005/03/15/cx_da_0315ebbersguilty). In addition, Ebbers was......

Triangle Fire

...Often when we experience a disaster that will set in motion the need for change. As we look back through history we come to realize that we have a tendency to make changes after a disaster has already occurred. We often have many warning signs prior to an incident but we choose to ignore them and continue to take chances as was done at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. On March 25, 1911 in New York City 146 people paid with their lives because of the unsafe working conditions that many workers endured during that time. Had just a few precautions been taken before that fateful night it is likely the loss of life would have been greatly reduced. This tragedy helped pave the way for new safety standards including better fire codes and factory safety standards. Industrial growth was proving to be hazardous to people’s health; America was now the world leader in industrial accidents. There was no denying the extremely harsh working conditions were to blame for many of the accidents. The workers at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory on the 9th floor were getting ready to go home, standing in single file with open purses so they could be checked to ensure they were not stealing from the company. It was the end of the day and the workers were giddy to be leaving, within moments chaos ensued. Flames had broken out on the 8th floor and as they had in the past workers grabbed pails of water to douse the flames only this time the fire spread quickly, before anyone was aware......

The Fraud Triangle

...The Fraud Triangle Abstract In 2002 SAS No. 99, Consideration of Fraud in a Financial Statement Audit describes the difference between material misstatements due to errors and intentional fraud and defines two types of intentional fraud: fraudulent financial reporting and misappropriation of assets. SAS No. 99 also introduced D. R. Cressey’s theory of the fraud triangle which is so named because it consists of three conditions that are generally present when fraud occurs: incentive/pressure, opportunity, and attitude/rationalization. Introduction This paper reflects on SAS No. 99 to describe the difference between material misstatements due to errors and intentional fraud which includes fraudulent financial reporting and misappropriation of assets. It also describes the fraud triangle theory proposed by D. R. Cressey. Think back to when you were in elementary school during fire safety week when the fire department would come and visit. Do you recall the fireman explaining what can be referred to as the fire triangle? That is, the description of what is necessary for fire to exist and continue. In order to create fire you need three things: fuel, oxygen, and heat. To put out (or prevent) the fire you would need to remove one of those three sides to the triangle. You could stop the fire by removing either the fuel, oxygen, or heat. This is a simple analogy for the fraud triangle. Just as there are three sides to the fire triangle there are three sides......

Bermuda Triangle

...Bermuda Triangle Many people have wondered how the Bermuda Triangle works? Why do ships, aircraft, and people disappear in the Bermuda Triangle? People have many perceptions about the Bermuda Triangle. Stories have been told and passed over the years but there is still no reasonable explanation to the mysteries that surround the Bermuda Triangle. The Bermuda Triangle is one of the strangest and bizarre mysteries. The Bermuda Triangle also known as “The Devils Triangle” is an imaginary area located off the Southeastern Atlantic Coast of the United States. Bermuda, Miami, Florida, San Juan, and Puerto Rico is what surrounds the Bermuda Triangle. The Triangle covers roughly 500,000 square miles. According to Lee Ann Obringer,” The area may have been named after its Bermuda apex since Bermuda was once known as the “Isle of Devils.” A mysterious and unsettling image in which ships and aircraft have disappeared under supposedly mysterious circumstances that scientists attribute to weather and currents. The most famous Bermuda Triangle story is the mystery surroundings Flight 19. A flight crew took off from base in Florida, which they thought was a regular routine training. All 5 planes had performed the practice bombing run without a hitch. As they were flying back to base, the Pilots had suddenly reported that their equipment was going crazy. The radio signals were growing weaker, and weaker as if they were flying the wrong way. According to Lee Ann......

...The Rhetorical Triangle Unit 1 IP Kevin Heer American InterContinental University The Rhetorical Triangle In getting to know the Rhetorical Triangle one must understand the three parts and how they are used in presentations. The following text uses two videos as examples of presentations and how the triangle fits within each one. For some time I have been searching for a new helmet that has many features for a great price. Motorcycle Superstore (MS) offer all lines of helmets at reasonable prices with videos and reviews that describe many of them. The speaker in this video was Mr. Harry McPherson, a sales representative for Nolan Helmets. Overall he did a great job in convincing me that he had knowledge of the product by presenting it with a strait foreword and informative presentation with little stutter or mistakes. He was wearing a professional looking shirt that gave off a knowledgeable sense of the product from the start. The vocabulary used in describing the product was top notch and very commanding. The situation in this case was describing the features, manufacturer and nature of a helmet that was in a room setting that gave focus on the product with no other items to take the attention away from it. The situation in this presentation included some close-ups that caught my attention. With myself being the audience, or any prospective buyer, had no trouble interpreting the message being conveyed by the speaker. Each element fit together very well and the......
