Discussion Homework Question

The controversial subject of intelligent design recently has received a lot of attention in the media.  Spend a little time researching the topic of intelligent design on the internet.  As you are conducting your research, think about how the theory of intelligent design might relate to William Paley’s Watchmaker argument for the existence of God.  The advocates of intelligent design claim that the theory of intelligent design is not a theological argument for God’s existence, but rather merely a scientific argument supporting the idea that the universe was not created by random chance.  Do you think intelligent design is just another type of argument for the existence of God?  Why or why not?  When responding to this question, please make sure to include references to the assigned Paley reading and/or the other resources you found on intelligent design.

For years, the plant has had a culture of highly lewd “jokes,” and many of the employees had also engaged in inappropriate touching of female employees. The plant had an anti-harassment policy on record, but Janet’s boss shrugged and said”boys will be boys” when she reported the harrassmenr to him.

Unbeknownst to the applicants the promotion board secretly ran a credit check on the applicants. Janet credit score came in as lower as average, and his factored into the board’s decision.

the first case involves Joe Stromboli. Joe is a delivery driver for Weyland, and after an accident, Joe became 100%  deaf in both ears.  The docotrs were unable to restore any of Jore’s hearing. Joe’s manager, Stephanie, believes that communication with employees and the recipients of the deliveres is an essential function of the job. Additionally, Joe needs to be able to particiapte  in the team meetings, Joe’s manager was unsure whether to proceed, so she referred the case to the Weyland-Wutani medical staff. The medical employee took one look at Joe and said no accommodation is possible. When asked why, the doctor said ” Joe’s deaf” Joe was terminated, and he has now filied a suit for failure to reasonably accommodate.

Thr job description for a Weyland-Yutani delivery driver states that the employee muat be able to maintain a commercial driver’s license. Additionally, delivery drivers are expected to take orders from various employees. This is ordinarily done via hand radio. However, Ice has a cell phone capable of receiving text messages and emails that could allow him to take orders. Furthermorw, Joe has offered to carry a pen and papet around so that communication could also be done this way. Joe’s deafness had no effect on maintaining his CDL, and the firm expects it would make these accommodations fairly cheaply.

2. What mistakes -if any-were mde? How can these be corrected in the future? the second case involves Johnson. Johnson is a flour supervisor in the plant. 55% of the time he is engaged with ordinary production. However, 45% of the time he is engaged with supervising his zone, preparing schedules, and dealing with supervising his zone, preparing schedules, and dealing with personnel disputes. If there is a problem, he is responsible for mobilizing his zone to resolve equitable. He also spends times meeting with his superiors in order to provide reports on efficiency of employees and on any other problems that have arisen. For this, he receives 10% more money than his subordinates. He had earlier been classified as an FSLA exempt employee. Now, he is challenging that designation. Although Weyland has a strict no-overtime policy, Johnson has been showing up to work early to drink a cup of cofee, smoke a cigarette, make sure schedules are prepared, doors are unlocked, and preparing workstations for the day ahead,.He typically arrives an hour early to perform these tasks. Weyland Knew that Johnson was coming in early, and working 45 hours a week.

3. Is Johnson an exempt employee? Be sure to list and discuss the applicable legal standards as well as some of the factors the court will consider

4.Was Johson’s pre-shift work preliminary?

5.Was Johnson’s work de minimis?

6. Does Weyland’s policy against overtime mean they don’t have to pay?



Weyland wishes to modify their pension plan. The current plan allows employees to either receive $500 a month or $100,000 upfront upon retirement. Both plans also offer a annual ticket to the company retreat cruise. Seeking to incentives people to accept $500 a month, Weyland wishes to the ticket to employees receiving $500 a month only to apply retroactively to $100,00 lump sum plan.

7. Does this violate ERISA? why or why not?



Weyland became aware that a union organizing campaign was underway in one of its plants. A union supporter was called in to a meeting with plant managers. At the end of the meeting, when the employee asked what he was suppossed to do if other wanted to talk with him about unionizing, he was told ‘[y]ou’re to just work and not talk about the Union.’ After union supporters posted material on company bulletin boards, the flyers were repeatedly taken down. The company then issued a policy requiring all employees to obtain approval before placing any material on the boards. Subsequently, the company’s practice was to refuse to post material of any kind from employees.


A few month later, several off-duty employees attempted to distribute prounion flyers in the company parking lot but were stopped by company officials. They were warned that they were in violation of company policy. Around the same time, employees passed out union buttons in the plant and left some of them near a time clock for other employes to pick up.


when company officials learned of this activity, they quickly called a meeting and warned one union advocate that ” i don’t want to catch you passing [buttons] out, Okay, I don’ want to see them laying around. You can pss them out when you’re outside, on your own time, but when you’re here working, you need to be working. “The official said that this action was taken to keep the plant free of clutter and trash.



at the end of her shift , a 19 year old salesperson at Weyland was questioned by two store security officers.  She was questioned by two store security officers. She was questioned in a small room for three hours. One of the security officers sat behind her on the right side where she could not see him (she was blind in the right eye). She was asked to sign a document stating that she was voluntarily waivng her “rights,” including the right to remain silent. When she asked for further explanation of the document before she signed it, she was told that it ” doesn’t mean anything’ you’ve  ‘done something wrong.” A security officwr threatened to call the police and have her jailed unless she signed a confession, She was told that the interrogation could last all night and that is she signed a confession she could probably keep her job. Under these circumstances she signed. She signed. She was fired two days later. Thw employee claims that she is agitated and finding it increasingly difficult to sleep.


Does the sale person have a claim for intentional infliction of emotional distress?

a female crane operator was told it was Weyland policy that crane operators urinate over the side of their cranes rather than stop work to take bathroom breaks. Management justified the policy by saying that there was a shortage of staff and that it was necessary for the cranes to operate continuiusly in that area of the plant. Shifts for crane opetators were typically twelve hours.  There was evidence that the same policy was applied to male crane operators and that they routinely urinated over the side or back of their cranes in leiu o bathroom breaks.


Does the female crane operator have a valid sex discrimination claim unde disparate impact? What about disparate claim under disparate impact/ What about disparate treatment?


Exegesis Paper MLA format, must choose a topic prior to excepting the assignment!!

Exegesis Paper

You will complete an exegesis of a passage from the New Testament (employing methods of interpretation and perspectives, such as literary and historical context, literary form, and structure). Exegesis means to expound upon a text, to unpack a text of its many meanings. Elements of various types of criticism will be employed to further develop your ability to interpret the Bible. The paper should be 2000-3000 words in length and follow MLA style.

Select one of the following passages as the basis for your exegesis:

   Matthew 6:9-13

   Matthew 17:1-13

   Luke 9:28-36    Luke 11:2-4

Follow the outline below and answer the questions in each section using recommended sources. Keep the outline headings below as the subheadings of your exegesis.

Literary Criticism

Context : What follows and precedes your passage? Are your pages affected by this context? Form criticism : What is the literary form of your passage? Are there other places in the Bible

(or related text) where this form is used and which help to interpret this passage? Structure : Do you detect any particular structural pattern (e.g., parallelism within your

assigned book of the Bible)? Describe the parts of your passage. Redaction criticism : Has your passage come through an editorial process? What changes

have been made? Explain why certain changes have been made. Key words : What are the theologically important words in the passage? Do these words

evoke any other parts of the Bible? Are these words used in a new way by the author of this passage? What do these words mean?

Theological Analysis

What does this passage say about the relationship with God? What questions might this passage have addressed in the community for which it was

originally written?

[Some of the ideas above are adopted from A Guide to Biblical Exegesis by G. Landes and W. Wink (unpublished.)]

You should document your paper carefully. More than three consecutive words used by another author need to be documented as direct quotation (as block quote or with quotation marks). Both paraphrase and direct quotation need to be cited. The purpose of such documentation is to enable the reader to find your source with ease. Failure to document adequately will earn the score of zero on the paper. Keep the use of quotation to a minimum. More than half of a paper consisting of quotation is unacceptable.

Be sure to use some material from the bibliography in the course Doc Sharing area for your exegesis, especially the biblical reference books. Below are some hints for successfully completing the paper:

1. Look up your passage in the New Testament.

3 Consult a general commentary (such as The Jerome Biblical Commentary , The New Jerome Biblical Commentary , or The Collegeville Bible Commentary ).

Consult specific commentaries (see the course bibliography in Doc Sharing, e.g., Harrington ’s Matthew’s Gospel , Fitzmyer ’s The Gospel According to Luke ).

Conduct a periodical search (through EBSCO) of your passage, limiting search to full-text, peer- reviewed journals.

Use the checklist below to ensure that you are following the format properly:

Are all ideas documented (including page numbers)?

Are all quotations documented (including page numbers)?

Is there a works cited page?

Do the notes and bibliography include sources recommended by the syllabus?

Does the format include the headings from the syllabus?

Does each sentence make sense?

Does the “form” section clearly name a lit erary form? Does the redaction section contrast the assigned passage with Mark’s version (except for infancy

narrative and Lord’s Prayer)?

Does the key word section include more than one key word?

Does the key word section refer to Old Testament material? 

Reason and Revolution

 Part 1: Some of the more characteristic doctrines of the Enlightenment focused on the power and goodness of human rationality:

1) Reason is the most significant and positive capacity of the human;
2) reason enables one to break free from primitive, dogmatic, and superstitious beliefs holding one in the bonds of irrationality and ignorance;
3) in realizing the liberating potential of reason, one not only learns to think correctly, but to act correctly as well;
4) through philosophical and scientific progress, reason can lead humanity as a whole to a state of earthly perfection;
5) reason makes all humans equal and, therefore, deserving of equal liberty and treatment before the law;
6) beliefs of any sort should be accepted only on the basis of reason, and not on traditional or priestly authority; and
7) all human endeavors should seek to impart and develop knowledge, not feelings or character. ( 

 Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Paine, and Thomas Jefferson embodied the Age of Enlightenment. Use your choice of three of the seven doctrines to explain and prove these author’s philosophies. Make sure you draw on our readings to support your choices. Next, consider and discuss how these doctrines have been advanced, tested, and revised as the nation has grown and evolved. 

 Part II: Briefly describe several, meaning more than two, of the conditions of the slave ship as experienced by Olaudah Equiano and related in his narrative. Compare his narrative to that of Phillis Wheatley’s experience. You must use selected quotes from each, but then interpret, in your own words, what the quotes mean and what their impact is on the reader. 

 Your initial discussion for each part should be at least 200 words.

Read David Lenson’s “On the Contemporary Use of Rhyme” (pp. 156-157 of the Meyer text) and focus on how these ideas can be used to analyze a piece of writing. In your essay, you must consider Lenson’s ideas and analyze how these concepts are reflected in contemporary music and poetry:

Consider some of your favorite music. Select two or three contemporary songs. These can cover a range of groups or vocalists. Directly address Lenson’s ideas to answer the question: Is Lenson correct in his assessment that irregular rhyme is not much used in songwriting? Why or why not?
Examine the rhymed couplets of these songs. Discuss whether or not they are used to sharpen social insight and enhance meaning for the listener. What is the effect of using rhyme in this way?
How do these songs compare to poems from our weekly readings? How do these songs and poems correlate with what Lenson is stating? Identify examples to support your point-of-view.
Be sure to be detailed and utilize terminology from the text, as you focus on works from our weekly readings and contemporary music. Analyze the rhythmic qualities of these works. This essay is an analysis that examines the possible meanings and relationships found in words and images. It is an unpacking and unfolding, or revealing of the words’ meaning as the song develops this meaning from beginning to end. This is an excellent way for you to connect with words and gain a better understanding of how they function. This essay will require your thoughtful consideration of the works’ main elements and your personal inference of the meaning with an eye towards uncovering the impact.
