Case Study 1
Parks, a 7-foot, 265-pound center for the San Diego Slick, objected when his contract was assigned from the ABC Corporation to the XYZ Corporation, the team’s new owner. The change of owners did not cause a change in the composition of the team although a new coach was hired. Parks’s compensation and his responsibilities remained the same. Was this contract assignable?
Facts of the Case: 1) Parks contract was assigned from the ABC Corporation to XYZ Corporation. 2) Parks compensation and his responsibilities remained the same.
1) The reason why we are in court today is to identify if Park’s contract was assignable.
Rules of the Law: 1) Personal Service Contract – The parties agree that a personal service contract may be assigned. This allows the trade of an athlete from one team to another team.

2) Notice of Assignment – Assignee is under a duty to notify the obligor that the assignment has been made and performance must be rendered to the assignee.

3) Anti-Assignment Clause – Prohibits the assignment of rights under the contract.

4) Approval Clause – requires that the obligor approves any assignment of contract.

Analysis & Conclusion:
Since we do not have all the facts we can assume the following: 1) Parks contract did include the Personal service contract. 2) Notice of assignment was made by XYZ Corporation. 3) Parks contract did NOT include Anti-Assignment Clause. 4) Parks contract did NOT Include Apporval Clause.
If we consider the following above true, than Park’s Contract was assignable, since there was no clause that prohibited the assignment of contract.

U.S. Debt

...The U.S. debt and its budget surplus and deficit(s) has been an on-going discussion way back from the foundation of America. America started borrowing money during the American Revolution. It wasn't officially considered a national debt until the Independence and the declaration of the U.S. Constitution. By the year of 1835, they were completely debt-free due to several budget surpluses and an effective budget planning. However, the budget surplus didn't last that long as the borrowing of money started again right after a year. The U.S. borrows money from Federal Reserve, U.S. Individuals and Institutions, Social Security Trust Fund, and other foreign nations and governments by issuing bonds for sale through the U.S. Treasury. Throughout history, some of the key reasons for the accumulation of the national debt was due to wars such as; WWI, WWII, Cold War, etc., drastic tax-cuts, The Great Depression, economic recessions, military and defence spending, welfare programs, bail-outs of big corporations, etc. America is forced to borrow money every time when their expenses are more than their revenue. This borrowing of money ultimately puts a debt on the U.S. and its citizens. The majority of the U.S. debt is owned by Federal Reserve and other U.S. individuals and institutions like; Social Security Fund, etc. whereas the second largest holder of the U.S. debt is China followed by Japan. Both China and Japan own 1.1+ trillion of U.S. debt each. The major borrowing of the debt......

Andy Warhol

...Andy Warhol Looking back over the past century or so, there were few artists that really stood out and became household names. One of these people was Andy Warhol— “the soup can guy.” To set the tone let me give you a quote to chew on: “What's great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.” –Andy Warhol Now, right off the bat, you can tell what kind of guy Warhol is, and his attitude toward life. Yes he took his art seriously but if you read his book The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B and Back Again) you will see that’s pretty much the only thing he really took seriously. Warhol, born Andrew Warhola on Aug. 6, 1928 , to Slovakian parents didn’t come from a well off family. His parents were working class immigrants in Pittsburgh. When Warhol was in third grade, he came down with St. Vitus’ Disease, a nerve disorder that causes involuntary movements and thought to be a complication of scarlet fever, which “changed his appearance and his life forever.” Despite this......

Andy Warhol

...Andy Warhol was one of the most imaginative, thought-provoking, and influential artists of the twentieth century. He was a key figure in the development of Pop Art, an artistic movement originating in the 1960s. Pop Art was an alternative to the art style Abstract Expressionism. Abstract Expressionism was serious, philosophical, and most people found it hard to understand. Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko where stars of this style. In Pop Art, common objects are the subject of the artwork. Artists like Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein took inspiration from comic strips, commercial goods, and advertising. Warhol's art was a commentary on our consumerist society and would inspire both outrage and delight alike. He was also fascinated by fame and the famous, creating silk-screen images of celebrities. Warhol challenged accepted ideas of what art should be and was responsible for breaking down the barrier between art and commercial design. When Andy Warhol was alive he was very mysterious about his origins. He would often make up a different story every time he was asked. After his death the truth's about where he came from was released. Andy Warhol was born Andrew Warhola on August 6, 1928 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was the son of Slovakian immigrants Ondrej and Julia Warhola. He had two older brothers John and Paul. In 1929 Andy's father had his gallbladder removed. The surgery didn't immediately kill him but it did lead to his death years later. It was an ironic sense of......

The U.S. National Debt

...The U.S. National Debt Econ Problems & Issues: ECO405 Professor Myung Han Alex R. Scales June 10, 2012 The national debt is the total amount of money the United States Treasury Department has borrowed and currently owes to the federal government's creditors (Sylla). These creditors are mostly comprised of the public, including individuals, corporations, as well as state, local and foreign governments. They also consist of various government trust funds, such as Social Security and Medicare. Additionally, they include the Federal Reserve, mostly in the form of treasury bonds, bills and notes. Currently, the U.S. national debt is estimated to be $8.5 trillion (ZFacts). This ever-growing figure brings with it several social and economic implications. Therefore, the national debt is a frequently debated topic that has over the years produced various schools of thought on how the U.S. government should manage it. In order to understand how the national debt could ultimately affect future generations of the United States and the different ways the government can best deal with it, it is first necessary to discuss its’ history. The origin of the national debt dates back to the War of Independence. In 1775, the Continental Congress authorized an issue of $2 million of bills of credit called Continentals to finance the war. At the end of 1779, $241.6 million of Continentals had been authorized in addition to several U.S. loan certificates, foreign loans, and......

Owe to Be Disciplined

...Owe to be Disciplined Waste segregation is an immense eco-friendly endeavor of our school but the puzzle is still missing with some pieces to be complete. This functional innovation requires earnest cooperation and most especially it needs discipline from the students. The student body and teachers can take pride in reducing the waste we produce as we help as well in reducing damage to the environment and in making school clean and assuring the students a safe and sound place. It is basically a direct contribution which everyone can take pride. Proper waste segregation can make us more responsible with the way we are using and disposing our trashes. Wastes are segregated on basis of biodegradable, non-biodegradable and recyclable waste which is visible on the label of the trash bins near the classrooms. On the other hand, garbage found and thrown on the ground and even the overflowing trash bins are an increasing problem. Volume of waste is growing especially during recess time. Far too few are acting with the best interest of the planet in mind. So where do we go from here? We can begin to address the problem individually and that’s where discipline should be applied within ourselves. The way the waste is sorted reflects our character. The most rational way to cope with all this is to develop an eco-friendly mindset to the students. Teaching identification of different types of waste and appropriate disposal methods is one......

Often, these businesses owe money to suppliers and to tax authorities, and the proprietors do not withdraw all their original capital and profits at the end of each period.

...The Founder of Pop Art: Andy Warhol Andy Warhol is the god father of Pop Art. His window advertisements were the beginning of an era where art would be seen in an array of forms away from the traditional paintings and sculptures of the old world. His love of bright colors and bold patters along with his quirky personality paved the way for his successful career as a major figure in the pop art movement. Warhol was born in 1930, in the town of McKeesport, Pennsylvania. His parents were Czech immigrants. After his father died, Andy was forced to support his family through odd jobs. He worked his way through Carnegie Tech., Pittsburgh where he studied commercial art. After graduation, Warhol moved to New York where he launched a successful career as an illustrator. He began producing “Pop” pictures in 1960 with works based on Popeye, Nancy and Dick Tracy comics. These early works were first shown as back drops for department store windows and were painted in loosely brushed style based on Abstract Expressionism. Warhol’s first works using comic material tended to soften hard professional gestures and aggressive vocabulary of the texts and images. Warhol countered the scrupulous accuracy of the original genre with imprecision and deliberate error. In doing so, he soiled the comic strips narrow-minded ideological and decorative purity. Andy Warhol’s next series, depicting the mass-produced goods of Compels Soup cans and Coke bottles, captured the clean-edged......

This paper will also reflect from the business owner’s aspect and how debt collection agencies can affect their business, especially if the collection agency is not following the law as they should. Why are you being contacted by a collection agency? It usually means that a creditor has not received payment from you for several months. They have negotiated with another company or are using an in-house affiliate called a debt collector to attempt to get you to pay. Third party collectors often purchase your debt for less than you owe, and your debt is now owned by the collector. A collector may also work for the creditor in return for a fee or a percentage of any money collected. In-house collectors that are affiliated with the original creditor work on behalf of the company directly. Because the creditor has taken a loss on your account or because you are late with making payments, this negative information may show up on your credit report.
