California man indicted on charge of killing daughter

This article is about a man who killed his daughter 3 years ago by shooting and suffocating his 21 year old daughter. How could you kill anyone, better yet how could you kill your daughter. I know that children can be very disrespectful and unruly at times, but what can a child do so bad as to make a parent shoot and suffocate them? This is morally and ethically wrong, and for him to hide the body for 3 years is just brutal. This man had no heart. How can a person with a heart even do anything as extreme as this? He should be tried and given life in prison for taking the life of his 21 year old daughter.

5 Ways To Ethically Consider Situations

December 8, 2009 Leave a comment

This article tells you what to do when you are faced with an ethical situation and you don’t know what to do.  There are five things to consider.  First embrace diversity.  Many benefits come from the diversity of people.  Diversity is a strength and advantage in the business world.  Second, don’t take what is not your own work and don’t accept anything that you have not earned for yourself.  Third always be careful to keep confidential information confidential.  Fourth if you don’t know ask.  BS gets you and the customer nowhere.  Finally the way you achieve the end result is just as important as the end result. I think this is simple good advice for anyone weather they are in the business world or not.  If everyone lived by these five thing then maybe the business world would be less corrupt.

Doctor shot to death at rural Ky. medical clinic

Doctor Shot to death at rural Kentucky clinic

This article is about a disgruntled patient, Combs, that walked into a doctors, Sandlins’ office on Tuesday and shot and killed his doctor. Combs had been a patient of Sandlin’s earlier in the day, returned with a gun and fired at the 57-year-old doctor. Combs came to the clinic, saw Sandlin in the doctor’s treating area, which is separate from the waiting room, and fired. Patients were at the clinic at the time, but Watts did not know how many because they had cleared out by the time many police arrived. This is just wrong, this man, had no right to kill this doctor, and better yet he probably does not even have a motive as to why he did it. If he was given a misdiagnosis or something, there are other ways to handle it rather than killing the doctor. No life deserves to be taken for any mistake someone makes. What right does any person has to take the life of another?

How To Say ‘NO’ With Tact

December 8, 2009 Leave a comment

Doing something that you know is unethical just because you don’t want to say no makes you just as unethical as the person asking you to do it.  This article tells you how to say no properly.  First state you concern with the action.  Suggest alternatives but include the other person in the alternative.  Also ask for assistant when needed.  In my opinion a very important skill to have is know how to say no but not just no you have to be able to give reasons.  Not being able to say no may put you in the middle of some unethical situation.  To avoid this conflict learn how to say no in a positive way.

20% of nation’s drinking water systems violated Safe Water Act

December 8, 2009 1 comment

Contaminated drinking water, which is a scary thought.  It has been reported that 19 million Americans have become sick from drinking tap water.  Around 20% of water treatment plants have reported illegal level of chemicals in the water.  Of the 20% only 6% were ever published.  This clearly violated the Safe Drinking Water Act.  Should these water treatment plants have to publish these finding?  Actually they do once a year.  Normally these reports come with your water bill but most people probably never read it.  In my opinion is a water treatment plant find that illegal levels of chemicals are in the tap water, the people effected should be notified immediately.

What’s really in the Senate health care bill?

December 8, 2009 Leave a comment

Everyone knows that any bill that is passed will have other smaller bills attached to it.  This is a way for senators to get there agendas through congress.  A large very controversial may have several smaller bills attached to it.  This is the case with the healthcare bill.  The question is what are they really passing.  In that one healthcare bill there is also attached funding for pharmaceuticals, sex education classes and time off for lactating mothers.  Is it really right for all of this to be attached in one bill?  In my opinion this is the only way to get things passed.  If every little bill had to be passes on its then nothing would ever be done.  Of course this can be misleading to the public because most people will not sit down and read 2000 pages of anything much less some as boring as a bill.  So the public may think that the healthcare bill is great but they do not know everything else that comes with it.
