Describe the company and the major initiative(s) they have planned for the next 5 years.
Johnson & Johnson, a fortune 500 company, is an American multinational pharmaceutical, medical device, and consumer packaged goods manufacture. The headquarters are located in New Brunswick, NJ. They are currently the sixth-largest consumer health company, and the world fifth-largest biologic company. Johnson & Johnson claims the title of the world’s largest and most diverse of medical devices and Diagnostics Company. This company is notorious for running many initiatives in the hopes of helping others and their well beings. For example, in September 2011 J&J announced the launch of every mother, every child, a comprehensive, five year, private-sector effort to improve the health of woman and children in developing countries. It’s an initiative which supports the United Nations’ April 2010 call for a renewed effort to achieve the Millennium Development Goals of reducing morality in woman and children by 2015. There are four main programs to achieve the goal, which are mobile health for mothers, intestinal worms in children, R&D innovations, and Safe Birth Programs. "Every Woman, Every Child has shown what can be achieved through close cooperation between the UN, governments, and the private sector," said United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. "A great deal has been achieved in the last year. Visionary leaders recognize the value of investing in the health of women and children." ("About Johnson & Johnson,") In 2011, they have added even more programs to continue to success in the every mother, every child movement.

Legal Advice Letter

...Legal advice for Mr John Smith 5th of December 2012 Dear Mr Smith, Thank you for your phone call last week requesting a legal advice. In this letter, I will provide you with my legal opinion concerning the facts you gave to me so you can make a qualified decision regarding the charges you face. First I will restate the facts, as I know them, to confirm their accuracy. Next, I will give you my opinion on whether a conviction for insider dealing is a potentiality. In your phone call you said, that you have received a call from City of London Police who wanted you to come in for an interview under caution due to evidence stating that you have been insider dealing. Regarding the facts of the case you explain, that you work for Stevens Management buying and selling orders and your wife works in the financial department in Transeit, a company which has been taken over by Microsoft. Before the offer from Microsoft became public the shares in Transeit shot up in value. According to the claim from the police exactly three days before the offer became public you excluded a sale of 500 Transeit shares. What makes your situation problematic is the fact that you had access to confidential information about the offer before it was made public due to your wife’s work. Whether you excluded the shares in your own name or in the name of the company your work for may also be relevant to the case. Due to the facts you have presented me it seem that the police have a strong case against you....

As a society we have come to realize that we cannot live the way we have lived the last century or for that matter decade. The travel industry is beginning to do their part by designing and using alternative fuel in the cars and trucks that we use on a daily basis. Boeing in conjunction with several different companies and countries is coming up with alternative fuel to be use in many of their planes they are developing. In the last several years, Boeing has begun to do research and test alternative fuel in some of the planes that they make and use. Along with these planes, they have also partnered up with the military to use the fuel and see how it affects the environment in military equipment. Their goal in doing all of this and coming out with an alternative fuel for planes, is to reduce the gas emissions that we saw in 2005 by 50% in 2050. (Airbus, Boeing, Embraer join hands on green jet fuel initiative, (2012, March 22)) With any new potential product that the consumer may or may not see, the company must be able to comply with different rules and regulations in that particular industry. Boeing released several recommendations to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) to accelerate the commercial viability and deployment of aviation biofuels. (Millikin, Mike.

Advice for Manager

...Advice for managers: Intrapersonal Skills Achieve and Maintain Confidence, Focus, and Positive Self-image Decreasing Self-Oriented Perfectionism Work on your self-esteem, and try to stop the automatic thinking that sets your sights so high that your efforts can never measure up. It is OK to be hard on yourself on occasion, but be sure to take some time to be proud of your successes as a manager - and as a person. Reflect seriously about how you perceive yourself. Note your own negative and positive self-impressions. Write down what you like about yourself, what your strengths are, the people to whom you are important, and why you are important to them. Also, keep track of your negative perceptions and try to figure out why you took that particular issue so seriously. Maybe it wasn’t so bad after all. Explore why you should be proud of yourself and review this list often. Keep a journal of your thoughts, moods, and daily activities. Observe your automatic reactions to events at work and how you feel about yourself during daily life. If you make what you see as a horrendous mistake and feel like the lowest, lamest, most despicable worm on the earth, then write down the event, how you feel about yourself, and how you interpret the situation. Next, consider the situation from other perspectives and write these thoughts down as well. Follow these steps to gain new insight about your perceptions: - Do a serious reality-check: Are other people thinking as scathingly about you?......

We are presented with a situation where a rider by the name Frits Boy, who is the oldest in the team,has a number of complaints against his team. Firstly, the team decided not to field him due to the fact that Fritz has been the slowest rider in the two competitions that the team participated in. The team also left him out of the team selected for the Tour de France that is forthcoming. Fritz feels unwanted by the team for his name has been removed from the team’s website and efforts to have his bike repaired by the team’s technicians have proved to be futile. Additionally, a rival team by the name Team Sky has approached Fritz and is trying to woo him on its side. The European Court of Justice is very clear on contractual terms and conditions. Fritz is on the verge of breaching his contractual terms with the Acme Bikes team by involving himself in negotiations with the Team Sky while is still bound to Acme Bikes. Fritz has the right to ask for a transfer in case he feels that he is not wanted in the team. However, he must adhere to the rules relating to transfer deadlines. It is clear that a late transfer can tremendously alter the strength of a team in the course of the championship. The European Court of justice has recognized that certain limitations......

You need to understand the principles and misconceptions of effective communication to make it work. It has been my experience after 33 years of marriage that we must all realize the power that words have and how the effect our attitude and also how we perceive what is being said between each other.

Advice for Lovers

...Running Head: LETTER of ADVICE Advice for a New Couple Jean VanDyke COM: 200 Interpersonal Communication Teresa Plummer September 16, 2013 Dear Nora and Lou, How to talk to an engaged couple If they were real close friends and I knew that what I would say to them would make them listen and hear me, this is what I would tell them. Identify the barriers to effective interpersonal interactions. If you do not talk about the things that are important to you at the beginning of your relationship, you will find yourself starting to resent the other person. Most people will just go along with what the other person wants to do or says until all at once they just explode. Then it is usually too late, and the words cannot be taken back. If you refuse to communicate or just keep quiet about what is bothering you, it will definitely hurt your lasting relationship. Playing games with each other is also not the way to go. If you are going to commit to each other, then by all means be only with that person. So many people will tell the person that they love them and only want to be with them, and then something happens that makes one or the other mad, and the next thing you know one or both of them are out with someone else. This is not the way to communicate. More than likely there will never be the trust they once had. There are three reasons why there is trouble in any relationship:” (1) silence or refusing to communicate; (2) placating,......

The Golden Advice

...Golden Advice Essay #4 617 The Golden Advice A typical message for all high school students would be, “You better start getting ready for college!” The fact of the matter is, not all high school students know how to get ready for college. Many people get to where they think they`ve always wanted to go, but ended up not liking where they are when it`s too late. College is somewhere you`re going to be spending the next four years of your life, or maybe more, so you want to make sure you`ve put legitimate thought into where you want to go. Every college student has different advice for high school students. Mine to you is start getting a study habit, think about the location of where you want to go to school, and then think about how much it`s going to cost for you to go to the school you`re interested in. For starters, get into a good study habit. Most high schools don`t require near as much studying than what is required for college. Simply put, college is a totally different lifestyle. You`re on your own and you don’t have anyone telling you to study, so you have to make sure you stay on top of everything. Classes are more difficult, test are more difficult, homework is more difficult, the list goes on. Most students get to college and get completely overwhelmed with how much they actually have to study. If you get into a good study habit now, you`ll be much better off and won`t be overwhelmed. That would be my first and probably most important piece of advice to......
