I was adopted in November 2016 and through my experience in foster care before I got adopted I was separated from my two biological brothers. My youngest brother, Jarmin, was separated from me when I was seven years old and he was adopted by my biological aunt and uncle. My older brother was seperated from me when I was 10 years old and was the greatest loss I’ve ever faced but through perseverance I was able to find his 5 years later. Through these experiences I have become more resilient!

Select two of the following and provide completed answers in a minimum of one pa

Select two of the following and provide completed answers in a minimum of one paragraph each. No title page required. Please correctly format and cite any external sources used: 1. In recent years, publicly traded companies have been under pressure to meet or beat the analysts’ consensus earnings estimates in their quarterly reports because the market will punish those that fail to deliver expected earnings. Thus, managers tend to utilize many methods to improve reported profitability that is cosmetic in nature and do not affect “real” operating performance to meet market expectations. These methods are referred to as earnings management (commonly called” cooking the books”). Managers have different motivations to engage in earnings management, and they usually defend their actions, including the following arguments: (1) Increasing stock price by managing earnings benefits stockholders; no one is hurt by these actions, (2) Earnings management is a temporary fix; such actions will be curtailed once “real” profitability improves, as managers expect. What are the affected parties in the schemes above to manage profits to prop up stock price? Do the ends of earnings management justify the means? What governance structure do you think to curb earnings management and increase the reporting quality? Please discuss. 2. Federal authorities recently brought the first-ever cryptocurrency insider-trading case, accusing a former Coinbase Global manager of tipping off his brother and a friend with confidential information and signaling in a companion case an aggressive new push to police digital tokens. Prosecutors in Manhattan filed wire-fraud charges against the three men. At the same time, the Securities and Exchange Commission brought a civil case against them in which it alleged that nine cryptocurrencies, including seven currently available on Coinbase, are unregistered securities. The SEC’s classification of the digital tokens as unregistered securities could have wide-ranging effects on the cryptocurrency industry and expose Coinbase and other platforms to new legal liabilities and regulatory requirements (please refer to the article” Former Coinbase Employee Charged in First-Ever Crypto Insider-Trading Case” under the reading assignment folder ) So, what is insider trading, and what are its most likely impacts on efficiently-functioning markets? Where would you draw the legal and ethical lines on when trading should be considered fair and when it should be considered illegal/unethical? According to the Securities and Exchange Commission, “The Code of Ethics and Insider Trading Policies and Procedures are designed to protect the public from abusive trading practices and to maintain ethical standards for access persons when dealing with the public. Active leadership and management integrity dictate that these principles be diligently implemented and monitored.” What are some examples of “active leadership” that managers and boards of directors can/should take to achieve the SEC’s intent? 3. As U.S. interest rates go up, money-market funds have been quicker to adjust than bank accounts, giving companies an incentive to shift their cash into those funds for a higher return (please refer to the article” Companies Look for Returns on Cash Piles as Interest Rates Rise ” under the reading assignment folder ) What are money market funds? Why do investors invest in them? How have rising interest rates impacted companies’ allocation of excess cash? Why might investing cash in money market funds be beneficial when there is a decline in interest rates? Please discuss.

Justifiably so, Bernardt et al. (2005) describe Criminal justice as a complex sy

Justifiably so, Bernardt et al. (2005) describe Criminal justice as a complex system with its myriad of players and often conflicting incentives. It is indeed a difficult environment for any reform. Courts, police, prosecution and corrections, and others in the justice system need to adapt quickly to new rules and practices presented by the 21st century. The whole criminal justice system is greater than the sum of its parts, and therefore the parts of the criminal justice system are best understood in the context of the whole. Such a whole-system approach can be difficult and demands strong, engaged leadership at every level. Change from this point requires more than just individual innovation, but a coordinated action across the whole criminal justice system. Drawing extensively from the above hypotheses, and applying the general systems theory (GST)[1], write a well-argued paper of no less than 3000 words on: “The Leadership Challenges in a Multi-Layered Criminal Justice System Draw inferences from ‘General Systems Theory and Criminal Justice’ by Bernardt et al. (2005)
