History[edit]
The ideology behind term paper mills can be dated back to the mid-nineteenth century in which "paper reservoirs" were located in the basements of Fraternity Houses. Otherwise known as "Fraternity files". these essay banks were practices in which students shared term papers and submitted work that had been done by other students.[2] These essay banks inspired the commercialization of ghostwritten essay-writing practices. As early as the 1950s, advertisements were circulating college campus that described services that included ghostwritten work for dissertations, theses, and term papers.[2]

In conjunction with this practice, the changing attitudes of students in the 1960s and 1970s started to stray away from diligent and engaged course work because they saw an emphasis on the benefits of community involvement. A new focus on activities outside of the classroom took away from time to focus on class work, thus promoting these writing services throughout college campuses.[2]

Soon, actual businesses were providing custom-written essays for students in exchange for compensation. They were located near college campuses.[3] You could walk into a building and look at pricing pamphlets, and speak to someone directly to place your order, or possibly choose from a vault of…...

General Mills

...General Mills’ Acquisition of Pillsbury from Diageo PLC Lauren Sherlock Jason Park JP Zendman 12/9/2009 General Mills’ Acquisition of Pillsbury from Diageo PLC Situation Analysis: In December 2000, management at General Mills (GM) proposed a plan to acquire Pillsbury, a bakedgoods producer, in a stock-for-stock exchange. Pillsbury is currently controlled by Diageo PLC, one of the world’s leading consumer–goods companies. The deal specifies that General Mills is to create and thus issue additional shares of common stock to Diageo in exchange for complete ownership of the Pillsbury subsidiary. If the deal is executed, Diageo will become General Mills’ largest shareholder. The consideration to Diageo would include 141 million shares of the company's common stock and the assumption of $5.142 billion of Pillsbury debt, making the deal worth over $10 billion. In addition, the agreement will contain a contingency, as up to $642 million of the total transaction value may be repaid to General Mills at the first anniversary of the closing, depending on its (20-day) average stock price at that time. Therefore, we must calculate and thus analyze the various costs and savings associated with the transaction to determine whether or not General Mills’ shareholders should vote for the proposed merger. If approved, this will be the biggest takeover in GM’s 136 years of business and General Mills will become the fifth largest food company in the world (Forster, 2002). General Mills......

Kant Versus Mill on Morality

...Kant Versus Mill On Morality Philosophy Essay Immanuel Kant was a German philosopher born in 1724 and died in 1804. His philosophical writings influenced people, not only in Europe but the world over. Centuries later, his works still form a major point of reference in studies carried out in the modern world. His writings were such that they brought a new dimension in religion, law and history. Among his many works was the ‘Metaphysics of Morals’ which form the basis for this paper. His view of morals is that our desires and emotions are categorically imperative, meaning that they are conscience driven. His philosophy is closely related to the golden rule which states that one should always act in accordance to the outcome that will give him the best outcome, while the categorical imperative rule of Kant seems to suggest that actions must be universal for them to be classified as either moral or immoral (Thomas, p10) John Stuart Mill on the other hand was a British philosopher born in 1806 and died in 1873. He also strongly contributed to the development of philosophical views that have continued to influence different aspects in different disciplines like sociology, politics and economy. Among his many developments is the utilitarianism theory that explains morality. Mill argues that the usefulness or moral worth of an action is determined by its utility (pleasure or satisfaction derived from the consequences of the action). Mill seems to suggest that our emotions and......

Paper Mill Scenario

...Paper Mill Scenario Natasha Miller Applied Business Law Everest University November 16, 2014 In this scenario, Delilah and I have an agency relationship. An agency relationship is where a principal engages an agent to carry out various duties on his or her behalf. This relationship involves delegating decision making powers to the agent by the principle; which means trust is a fundamental requirement for it to succeed. The agreement is that Delilah will negotiate the contract for wood pulp with the third parties. When determining the liability of the contracts made by the agent, the liability is based on whether or not the identity of the principal was made known to the third party at the time the contract was being negotiated. When it comes to the contract with Evon it is considered a disclosed principal contract which means that the principal whose identity is known by the third party at the time the contract was negotiated. I am the only one that can be held responsible in a disclosed principal contract. The contract that Delilah was negotiating with Felipe is considered a partially disclosed principal which means the identity of the principal was not known at that time but Felipe and Delilah were negotiating the contract on behalf of the principal. So either I or Delilah can be held accountable for this contract but not both of us. The contract with Giorgio is known as an undisclosed contract in which the liability of an undisclosed principal and the agent is an...

Kant & Mill

...Kant & Mill Kant and Mill were two philosophers known and recognized for their moral integrity, merit, and their contributions to society through philosophical beings. Kant and Mills perspectives are alike; yet differ, in a variety set of ways. Through an actual real life event, I will describe how their philosophical theories would be demonstrated and the consequences of those actions according to the choice that is being ultimately made. Being that they are philosophers, who has the correct theory and which theory should the world abide by? The great philosopher Kant stated that “Act only on that maxim whereby thou canst at the same time will it become a universal law.” This statement is the categorical imperative of the philosopher Immanuel Kant. Another way to describe this philosophical concept is by stating that good will should be good in itself regardless of the obstacles that may interfere with the end results of an action. Kant utilizes some space throughout his moral philosophy to argue that good will should merely depict good intentions even if the conveyer is victimized. Lets get deeper in Kant’s ethical theory. Actions that are being done only because of initial duty are morally good in relation to their maxims, the subjective principles of choice. Duty, according to Kant, “is the necessity of acting from respect for the law.” The law is the objective principle of choice. So, for Kant, for a maxim to be morally good it must conform to a universal......

Mills and Dahl Discussion

...Midterm Essay of Mills and Dahl The representations in political science about aspects of political theory and such subjects like representation or group action are relevant to the understanding of the current political atmosphere in the United States today. Their relevance to political science becomes important in understanding the mechanisms of equal representation or the function of the government because political thinkers such as C. Wright Mills or Robert Dahl wrote and discusses the aspects of who governs, who is represented, and who rules in a democracy like the United States. While C. Wright Mills and Robert Dahl worked off the ideas of one another, they also maintained different ideas in the sense of such subjects. Applied to the current political scene today, their philosophies provide a unique understanding of who governs as well as give their respects to the ideas of the Founding Fathers. What lasting philosophies of these two men provide in context to the state of current events? Author R. Hofsteadter published a book entitled The Founding Fathers: An Age of Realism and the contents of the the publication argued that the Founding Fathers of the United States held a particular view of their fellow man, one in which shaped their thinking and ultimately, the writing of the Constitution.
