Which Justice did you choose to read about? Give a brief summary of who this Justice is (date of appointment, background, interesting facts).
I read about Chief John Roberts, George W Bush appointed him in 2005. He attended Harvard where he majored law.
What was the most surprising aspect of the discussion?
The high regard he has for the court and the position he is in. He carries it n the highest regard. When he compared the modern court to the past court he empathized on how more serious the job is taken.
Name and discuss two main points of the interview in respect to the function and/or structure of the U.S. Supreme Court.
One main point was how many cases are brought to the Supreme Court over 9000 a year, and the real effort to pick the right cases to help interpret the law.
The second is when he described how he felt when he was a lawyer as well as being the judge to lead the bar, showing the process of a trail if it case reaches the course. Was there anything in this discussion that you disagree with? If so, justify why. If not, explain why you agree with this justice.
I don’t believe that there isn’t any type of impartial decision making in the courts. Every time a judge resigns it’s a big deal because the President appoints a new judge, and the President always wants someone with views and believes that they have. Using the Internet for research (in the event it was not discussed in the interview), is there a case in which this Justice’s vote was pivotal? Name the case and give a very brief description.

...Robert Johnson Robert Johnson laid the foundation for blues rock. After Eric Clapton, world-renowned guitarist, heard Robert Johnson for the first time he said, “I realized that, on some level, I had found the master, and that following this man’s example would be my life’s work.” It isn’t only Clapton that believes Johnson to be one of the best guitarists of all time. Spin magazine, Rolling Stone, and Guitar.com all rate Robert Johnson as one of the greatest guitar players of all time. He has inspired legendary musicians such as Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Muddy Waters, Jimi Hendrix and others (4). If, in today’s world of hip-hop and heavy metal, a person knows of only one country blues artist, odd are it is Robert Johnson (3). Let’s explore how this young man’s life impacted blues and rock music. Robert Johnson was born on May 8, 1911. Although there are differing dates on documents, this is the date that is most commonly believed to be correct (1). He was born in Hazelhurst, Mississippi and spent much of his early life in levee camps and on plantations. In 1918 his stepfather sent him to a plantation by Robinsonville, Mississippi. This is where he started playing harmonica and meeting older blues musicians such as Willie Brown, Charley Patton and Son House. He eventually moved back to Hazelhurst and met his wife but she died rather quickly after getting married (5). After his wife passed he went back to Robinsonville and met back up with his old blues musicians and......

...Johnson & Johnson is a multinational, medical device, pharmaceutical and consumer packaged goods manufacturer founded in 1886. One of the biggest health care com panies in the world was recently hurt by recalls, causing thousands of lawsuits and a new CEO being hired. Alex Gorsky, the new CEO of J&J, will face multiple challenges including making sure products are safe for the consumers. J&J was known for product safety, but the many recalls have caused consumers to question what they previously thought of the company. Some of the major issues that caused this decline is sales and revenue are the fact individual ethics were almost completely lost during this troublesome time. The consumer’s personal values were not considered. William Weldon’s responsibilities as CEO were also ignored, which trickled down to lower level management. Another Huge issue was that no one wanted to take social responsibility for the problems of J&J, this caused consumers to shy away from products. Someone should have stepped up and taken responsibility and an accommodative approach. This may have led to a smaller loss of sales. Alex Gorsky has a big challenge ahead of him, trying to improve the relationship between J&J and its consumers. He needs to step up and become a better CEO than his predecessor. Gorsky needs to gain back the trust of his employees and his loyal customers. Being a more personable and accommodative provider can go a long way in this process. He......

On November 23, 2015, I spent the week among staff to assess these complaints. My assessment was done with a check list and visual observation of the following: I arrived 15 minutes before shift change. I checked the communications and automation maintenance log books. I checked inventory and the storage supply room. I observed the ergonomics of the department. I observed staff etiquette. I survey all recently hired laboratory staff. My findings were that all staff promptly reported 10 minutes before shift change. The communications and automations maintenance log books were legible and satisfactory. Inventory was in its routine order and the supply room was adequate for the needs of the laboratory. In observing the work flow operations of the lab, I’ve estimated it to be an ergonomically correct environment. Phone etiquette and staff interactions made a pleasant atmosphere to work in. However, survey showed that recently hired staff was not trained in how to operate the hospital’s phone system. My assessment of the complaints weren’t that laboratory staff had a lack of technical bench......
