a community psychologist, has been conducting a federally funded
ethnographic study of men’s attitudes toward intimate partner violence following
conviction and release from prison for spousal abuse. Over the course of a year, she has
had individual monthly interviews with 25 participants while they were in jail and
following their release. Aiden, a 35-year-old male parolee convicted of seriously injuring
his wife, has been interviewed by Dr. Yeung on eight occasions. The interviews have
covered a range of personal topics including Aiden’s problem drinking, which is
marked by blackouts and threatening phone calls made to his parents and girlfriend
when he becomes drunk, usually in the evening. To her knowledge, Aiden has never
followed through on these threats. It is clear that Aiden feels very comfortable discussing
his life with Dr. Yeung. One evening Dr. Yeung checks her answering machine and
finds a message from Aiden. His words are slurred and angry: “Now that you know the
truth about what I am you know that there is nothing you can do to help the evil inside
me. The bottle is my savior and I will end this with them tonight.” Each time she calls
Aiden’s home phone she gets a busy signal.

Smith Ltd is a listed company. Colin Ltd holds 45 per cent of the issued shares in Smith Ltd. Note Ltd holds 30 per cent of the shares. The remaining 25 per cent is held by a diverse group of shareholders.
Smith has tendered for the construction of a large timber mill and is likely to be the successful bidder. It will need an injection of funds to construct the mill. The directors are concerned that Colin Ltd, which also has other timber milling interests, will launch a takeover of Smith Ltd and they will lose their positions. They are also concerned that Colin Ltd will terminate the employment of many of workers now working for Smith Ltd. Indeed Colin Ltd has a reputation of using foreign workers rather than local workers.
At a board meeting the directors resolve to allot a substantial number of shares to Note Ltd in consideration for a promise that Note Ltd will arrange additional finance for the construction of the mill. The allotment to Note Ltd varies the shareholding power of Colin Ltd such that, after the allotment, Colin Ltd will only command 10 per cent of voting power.
Advise the directors about the possibility of any legal challenge to their actions under the Corporations Act 2001.
The Timber Works Pty Limited (in liq) (the “Company”) was wound up in December 2011. The Company conducted a family business with Jacob and his wife Marie as the sole Directors of the Company. Jacob and Marie were the sole Directors of the Company since its incorporation and were its Directors at the time the Company was wound up. Tania was employed by the Company as its Financial Officer, but was not a director of the Company.

The liquidator now seeks to recover from Jacob and Marie the sum of $600,000, being the amount which corresponds with the total of some debts incurred by the Company between 2010 and 2011. The liquidator alleges that when each of the debts were incurred the Company was insolvent.
Both Jacob and Marie allege that they had reasonable grounds to expect that the Company was solvent at the relevant time and that it would have remained solvent even if the Company had incurred those debts and any other debts at that time. In support of this contention Jacob and Marie state that throughout the relevant period the debts incurred and which would continue to be incurred by the Company could have been paid by recourse to the sale of the assets of the Company and that Jacob and Marie believed it was possible that those assets could have been sold over a 90 day period.
Further, Jacob and Marie state that they were advised by Tania during the relevant period that the Company was solvent and was able to meet its obligations because most of the creditors did not press for payment within the normal trading terms and because there was an understanding that the creditors would not take recovery action against the Company provided that the Company paid within a reasonable time after a 30 day notice was given. Tania says that she was never asked to monitor solvency and that her job was more akin to being a bookkeeper and that she did what she was told by Jacob and Marie.
Advise Jacob and Marie of their prospects of resisting the liquidator’s action. Your answer should include an analysis of the essential elements (under s588G of the Corporations Act 2001) that are necessary to be shown by the liquidator to be successful and an analysis of any such defences (under S588H) that Jacob and Marie may have to any such application.

During the 1800s, and well into the 1900s, families took care of their own members whenever possible. Several generations lived together, with the younger generation taking care of the older and vice versa. Post 1900s, the joint family system started disintegrating.
Interview at least five people of varying ages from different families to know their perspective on disintegration of joint family system. Based on your interview findings and learning from your readings, respond to the following questions:
- What factors led to disintegration of the joint family system?
- What has been the impact of this disintegration on aging people and long-term care?
- Did disintegration have any benefits for health service organizations? Why or why not?
At the same time this shift occurred in the family structure, health care organizations were experiencing continuous changes in their operating styles. The long-term care system took some time to catch up with the changing nature of businesses. In the 1990s and early 2000s, long-term care was seen to experience several turbulent changes, particularly related to its operations, management, and structure. Research the South University Online Library and the Internet to find information on the changes in the long-term care system in the United States and respond to the following questions:
- How have the operations, management, and structural changes of the 1990s and early 2000s impacted the long-term care system today?
What are the strengths and weaknesses of the present long-term care system in the United States?
What is a variable? Explain the difference between an independent variable and a dependent variable. Provide an example of each.
You are interested in conducting research concerning police officers and their jobs. The information you want to gather, including job satisfaction or job hazards, is up to you as long as you clearly state the goal of your research. The method you use should be appropriate for the goal of your research.
Develop a 1,050- to 1,750-word paper addressing what you have learned about criteria for criminal justice research, specifically with regards to what research method is appropriate in your proposal.
Address the following questions:
- What is the goal or purpose behind your proposed research?
- What type of interview structure would you use? Why?
- What would be some questions you would ask? Why?
- What are some distinct advantages of a qualitative data-gathering strategy, such as participant observation, over more quantitative approaches?
- When conducting survey research, how important is informed consent and confidentiality?

Excellent article about taxability on expensive gifts. First thought comes in mind is that gifts are not income so why tax. Well the IRS is looking for way to collect tax revenues with the least amount of fuss. So what is the taxable value of these gifts? According to IRS Gift Bag Questions and Answers: “In general, the person has received taxable income equal to the fair market value of the bag and its contents and must report that amount on his or her federal income tax return.”
The IRS is now notifying entertainment and charitable organizations that they must issue appropriate 1099-MISC forms at the end of each year to each celebrity or recipient of these expensive sets of gifts.
2)Taxability of Gift Bags
I do not have any objections to gifts being taxable that are worth more than 600 dollars. In this case, celebrities are gifted for their nominations in categories. As stated in the article if they do not want to be taxed on these items the smart thing to do would be to not accept it or make arrangements to have this gift donated to a charity. In my honest opinion, celebrities getting these gifts are not necessarily concerned with this extra taxation as they are already making millions anyway.
For example in a article Anne Hathaway was taxed on goods given to her at the Oscars totaling up to $47,000. The gifts included a certificate for a face lift (worth 5,000) and an all expenses paid trip to Australia. These gifts are subject to taxes in the state that they were given and the federal rate of the taxpayer. When these are re-gifted to others they are in theory supposed to issue a 1099 so that the IRS can track it. As stated above though, it is my belief that this is the least of celebrities worries as they can afford the things in the gift bag on their own without it being gifted. In my honest opinion, I would not accept this gift if given the option or I would make prior arrangement to have this gift donated to charity upon receipt.
