Collective Labor Law

The collective labor laws contain laws defining the relation between employers, workers and the labor unions. Since the labor unions have a great hand to play in the development of labor conditions and have the power to even go against the employers, it is necessary to have some laws that would place a midway between the authority of the two. It will be wrong to assume that whatever labor demands is right and the employers are always the evil ones with the sole intention of harming the labor. The activities of the unions have to be controlled to the advantage of both the labor and the employers so that none can take advantage of the other. This is what is done by the collective labor law.

Fishing boat

Joe Marino is contemplating signing on to work as a fisherman on a four-person Alaska fishing boat this season. As a crew member, Joe will receive 10% of the revenue that the ship generates. The fishing season lasts anywhere from 125 to 144 days, depending on when the waters start to freeze up. Joe believes that the length of the fishing season can be modeled as a discrete uniform distribution. On any day during the fishing season, there is a 15 % chance of stormy weather that would prevent the ship from fishing. The daily catch on the days that the boat does fish can be modeled as a normal distribution with a mean of 2400 pounds and a standard deviation of 500 pounds. The revenue the ship receives per pound each day is uniformly distributed between $.85 and $1.05 per pound. Using Crystal Ball, develop a simulation for Joe Marino to estimate the likelihood he will earn more than $26,000 during the fishing season. Base your results on 1000 simulation runs.

Counselling suffering clients

how to counsel suffering clients

For discussion this module/week, we consider how to counsel suffering clients. The class lectures, Entwistle, and McMinn all discuss the concept of suffering and factors guiding how we counsel those who are suffering. In fact, a careful reading of the Reading & Study materials indicates numerous concepts and principles that we could apply as we counsel those who are hurting. 1.Considering the numerous points that were made, make a list of at least 5 concepts (“questions to ask myself as I counsel those who are suffering. . . “) that you found particularly helpful, insightful, unique, or had not thought about before. What guidelines would you particularly emphasize as you counsel hurting people? 2.Then consider this client’s statement: Client: “Dr. Counselor, I have been coming to you now for six weeks. I am not sure that counseling is working. I don’t feel any better now than when we started talking. Why are you not helping to remove this pain that I am feeling?” If your client expects that you help to remove the suffering, how would you respond, based on what you learned from your study for the week?

Reply: As you reply to your classmates, probe their answers. Did they justify why their list of concepts was so important—or non-obvious? Was their answer to the client persuasive?
In all your discussion board work for this module/week, make sure to integrate appropriate concepts from the class sources, and cite correctly, per current APA format.

RESEARCH EXERCISE 2 INSTRUCTIONS

Research and locate 1 scholarly journal article on each of the following 3 topics for a total of 3 scholarly journal articles. Scholarly journal articles must be articles from scholarly or academic journals. “Christianity Today” and Bible dictionaries/encyclopedias (in printed form or online) do not count as scholarly articles. Also, books and book reviews cannot be used. Instead, find a scholarly article from an academic journal to use; they will usually be more than 5 pages. If you question if an article is acceptable, contact your professor. Part of the grade derives from your ability to summarize scholarly journal articles.

Using proper, current Turabian format, summarize the main points of each article in your own words in a 1-paragraph summary. Include the bibliographic information for each of the 3 articles. The 3 topics are as follows:

1. The conversion of Constantine.
2. The impact of the fall of the Western Empire on the church.
3. The role of heretical Christianity on the advent of Islam.

Your research findings must be submitted in 1 document via the SafeAssign submission link in the Assignments folder and uploaded to Discussion Board Forum 2.

Submit this assignment to SafeAssign and upload it to Discussion Board Forum 2 by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Wee

The conversion of Constantine
Drake, H.A. “Constantine and Consensus”. Church History64, no. 1 (1995): 1-15.
Constantine’s conversion entailed his move from Paganism to Christianity. This event shaped the life of many Christians, including the Constantine. Despite the lack of the actual date of the occurrence of this event, Constantine got an opportunity to inherit the empire depending on his broad protection of Christians. Constantine had open disagreements with the persecution of Christians as he evolved into an emperor who ended all the molestations that were facing Christians through the use of his court making himself a friend of the church. Constantine had a strong desire to leave the throne of the Roman Empire to his son.
How the Collapse of the Western Empire Affected the Church
Hanson, R.P.C. “The Reaction of the Church to the Collapse of the Western Roman Empire in the Fifth Century” Vigiliae Christians 26, no. 1 (1972): 272:287.

The collapse of the Western Empire came as a result of combined factors. The most important external issue was the savage attacks despite the presence of internal forces that attributed to the collapse of this empire. Research suggested that the increased growth of centralized monasticism was another factor that led to this decline. Most of the Christians had to revert to their ancient ways by holding the secular administrative role as those who were highly educated managed the falling empire. They also failed to pay attention to other factors such as justice. The incurred changes were too sporadic for the church making the believers experience a lot of hardships.

The Role of Heretical Christianity on the Advent of Islam
Speel, C.J. “The disappearance of Islam from North North Africa in the Wake of the Rise of Islam”. Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture 29, no. 4. (1960): 379-397.

The tremendous inception of the Islamic religion in North Africa offers the best illustration for the fundamental duty that Heretical Christianity performed in the initiation of this new religion, Islamic. The north of Africa was regarded as a region of high conversion as Augustine of Hippo and Tertullian; Cyprian of Carthage had a great influence. However, the impact of the two leaders failed to challenge the intruding rule of the Muslims. Most of the people who were practicing Christianity were lured into the new religious teachings of Islamic religion as they converted to become Muslims. The lack of solid religious foundation among people who lived in the North Africa came from disintegrated faiths between the Catholic practices, some Chalcedonian, and Arians. Islam found a wide opportunity to flourish not only in North Africa but the whole world due to these differences.
