Week Five instructions:

You are the manager of Acme Fireworks, a fireworks retailer who sells fireworks, puts on ground display fireworks, and large aerial display fireworks. The company started in the owner?s garage two years ago and now has 15 employees that you manage. The company started as a sole proprietorship, and the owner has never changed the entity. The owner has informed you that the company has received inquiries from several large businesses wondering if the company could create several fireworks displays on a regular basis. The owner told the inquirers that the company could fill such display orders, and a price per display was agreed upon. It was discussed that most of the cost for a fireworks display is for skilled labor, insurance, and the actual service of setting off the fireworks. No other details were discussed. The owner is anticipating that new employees will need to be hired, but he is worried that if the large orders for fireworks displays do not continue, the company will not have the funds to pay the new employees. The owner is now considering changing the business entity, but he does not know what entity to form or how to form it.

The owner has asked you to do the following:

  • Determine if the contracts with the businesses will be governed by common law or the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), and explain why.
  • Analyze whether the owner formed a contract with the businesses, and apply the five essential elements of an enforceable contract.
  • Explain the potential personal liability to Acme Fireworks if a spectator is injured by a stray firework from a fireworks display.
  • Discuss the different employment types and relationships relevant to agency law, and analyze the advantages and disadvantages of each type specific to Acme Fireworks.
  • Explain why Acme Fireworks should not operate as a sole proprietorship. Recommend a new business entity, and provide rationale to support your recommendation.

For each task, be sure to analyze the relevant law, apply the facts to the law, and make a conclusion


Outline

 

Before you start writing the first draft of your essay or research project, it is always useful to make an

 

outline of your ideas. If you have already decided on your focus or topic, and you have a rough list of

 

sources for support, then you are ready to draft an outline.

 

Keep in mind that outlines are required to follow a format style (eg. APA). An outline is simply a

 

way to organize your ideas and information. The following is an abbreviated version of what is often

 

referred to as a formal or ?traditional? outline. It can be expanded or condensed to fit the scope of

 

your essay or research project. The example below is based on the five-paragraph essay model.

 

I. Introduction

 

A. Thesis Statement

 

II. Body paragraph #1 ? Topic Sentence #1

 

A. Supporting Evidence

 

1. Name of & quote from source

 

2. Name of & quote from source #2 (if applicable)

 

B. Explanation

 

1. Explanation of source

 

2. Explanation of source #2 (if applicable)

 

C. So What?

 

III. Body paragraph #2 ? Topic Sentence #2

 

A. Supporting Evidence

C. So What?

 

IV. Body paragraph #3 ? Topic Sentence #3

 

A. Supporting Evidence

 

B. Explanation

 

C. So What?

 

V. Conclusion

 

A. Rephrase thesis statement

 

B. Bring closure by going from specific to broad The Thesis Statement (TS) will be the

 

last 1-3 sentences of the introduction. Supporting Evidence

 

Integrate an appropriate example,

 

such as a quote, statistic, case

 

study, etc. Explanation

 

Explain how this evidence supports your

 

topic sentence. Try to develop your

 

explanation in 2-4 sentences. So What?

 

What?s significant or important about the

 

ideas (topic sentence + evidence +

 

explanation) in this paragraph? Remind

 

your reader how all this connects back to

 

the TS. The TS is the first 1-3 sentences of the

 

conclusion. It should be ?rephrased? here

 

rather than repeated verbatim. Avoid

 

simply summarizing the main points in

 

the conclusion: synthesize them. To see what a complete outline, refer to the model below. The thesis statement has been taken from

 

the Thesis Statement Guide section of the Ashford Writing Center.

 

I. Introduction

 

A. Thesis Statement

 

Although there are educational television programs, parents should regulate the

 

amount of television their children watch because it is not always intellectually

 

stimulating, it can distort a child?s perception of reality, and it inhibits social

 

interaction.

 

II. Body paragraph #1 - Topic Sentence #1

 

While television has the potential to offer programs that can be seen as educational

 

supplements, too much television has an even greater potential for turning children

 

into passive viewers and getting in the way of intellectual stimulation.

 

A. Supporting Evidence

 

As a recent article from the University of Michigan Health Systems (2008)

 

maintains, ?Too much television can negatively affect early brain development.

 

This is especially true at younger ages, when learning to talk and play with others

 

is so important? (qtd. in ?Television?).

 

B. Explanation

 

Indeed, too much television can be detrimental to cognitive development because

 

preschool-aged children need physical interaction, and television for older children

 

acts as an unhealthy replacement for reading and being read to. Children need to

 

engage in imaginative play; adolescents and teenagers benefit from getting fresh

 

air and being more active.

 

C. So What?

 

While it would be too easy to dismiss every TV show directed at youths?in fact,

 

PBS and Discovery Kids offer excellent programming?children?s lives are

 

increasingly centered around TV-watching, and thus, parents should regulate how

 

much their kids are viewing regardless of content or perceived quality.

 

III. Body paragraph #2 - Topic Sentence #2

 

Moreover, with proper supervision or regulation, there are television programs that can

 

distort a child?s perception of reality.

 

A. Supporting Evidence

 

In the online article ?How TV Affects Your Child,? Dr. Mary Gavin (2008) points

 

out that ?TV characters often depict risky behaviors, such as smoking and

 

drinking, and also reinforce gender-role and racial stereotypes.

 

B. Explanation

 

Certainly, seeing these types of behaviors and stereotypes exhibited by favorite television personalities and encouraged by favorite shows can contradict with the

 

values parents want to instill in their children, which can cause both tension and

 

confusion. While television does have entertainment value, children cannot learn

 

all the differences between right and wrong from it.

 

C. So What?

 

Although it is difficult to prevent children?s total exposure to questionable social

 

mores and limited multicultural representation in the media, parents can have

 

some control by supervising their children?s viewing as well as talk about what?s

 

portrayed on television.

 

IV. Body paragraph #3 - Topic Sentence #3

 

Finally, television can impede healthy relationship-building and impose on family

 

time.

 

A. Supporting Evidence

 

For example, recent studies have found that the television is on most of the time in

 

51% of households and that ?[k]ids with a TV in their bedroom spend an average

 

of almost 1.5 hours more per day watching TV than kids without a TV in the

 

bedroom? (qtd. in ?Television?).

 

B. Explanation

 

If children are spending this much time glued to the their favorite television

 

programs, and if parents do not have rules about how much is okay to watch, then

 

children are not only spending less time on important cognitive development

 

activities such as reading and doing homework, but they are also spending less

 

time on social interaction with peers and important family time.

 

C. So What?

 

Given how long families are apart from each other during the week because of

 

school and work, it is unfortunate that any extra time outside of those obligations

 

should be wasted on watching television; therefore, regulation is one key

 

approach to ensure a family?s closeness and the strength of the parents? bond with

 

their children.

 

V. Conclusion

 

A. Thesis Statement rephrased

 

Television can be both educational and entertaining for children; however, only in

 

moderation. Thus, it?s important that parents step in to supervise how much

 

television their children watch as it can negatively affect their intellectual,

 

psychological, and social development.
