When most people hear the name J. Edgar Hoover they think of a man who was very powerful. He was a criminologist and became the man who changed the
Bureau of Investigation to the Federal Bureau of
Investigation and remain at his position for 48 years until his death in 1972. Hoover worked hard to achieve his prestige and success, but he was not an honest man. Hoover was a blackmailing, prejudice, and manipulating man who was jealous of other people’s accomplishment and used his position to benefit himself and burry who he once was. J. Edgar Hoover was born in born in Washington, D.C., on January 1, 1895. Born to Dickerson Naylor Hoover and Annie Marie Scheitlin Hoover, Edgar was the youngest of the three. Hoover did well during his time in high school, playing an active role in the school’s ROTC program he was always very focused and became the valedictorian of his class. After high school he took a job at the Library of Congress, and in three years made it through George Washington
University’s law program. After Hoover had successfully passed the bar in 1917 in that same year he joined the U.S. Department of Justice. Hoover’s first job in the Department of Justice was as a clerk in the files division, in less than a year he was promoted. He was known for his enthusiasm and his strong attention to detail. After many men of
Hoover’s age group registered for the war his promotions came one after another until he reached the top and became the head of the Bureau of
Investigations. Because the Bureau at that time was highly corrupt Hoover set out to separate the agency from politics, make promotions based on ability, and have the Bureau only responsible to the Attorney
General. Hoover took charge of the Agency and quickly made into a professional and nationally respected police force. Hoover’s responsibility increase…...

Zaključak 30 Literatura Uvod Edgar Alan Po (Edgar Allan Poe, 1809-1849), jedan od najvećih pisaca Američke književnosti. Sve u njegovom životu je mistično, zagonetno i sablasno. Sve je obavijeno velom tame i obeleženo simbolima smrti. Vrlo malo stvari se u Poovim delima može sa sigurnošću utvrditi, jer se vrlo često susrećemo sa mističnim situacijama i pojmovima, koje sa teškoćom možemo utvrditi. Upravo te teme će biti obrađene u ovom radu, niti mističnosti koje je Edgar Alan Po pleo u svojim poznatim delima. To su teme mističnosti za koje je potrebno prethodno istraživanje ne bi li se iskristalisale. Lako možemo zaključiti da je Edgar posedovao visoku inteligenciju i ogroman talenat, kao I to da je tragična sudbina neupitno pratila, njegovu, inako preosetljivu ličnost. “Poove ličnosti, ili, bolje rečeno, ličnost Poa, čovek izuzetnih sposobnosti, čovek raslabljenih živaca, čovek čija vatrena i strpljiva volja prkosi teškoćama, onaj čiji je pogled upravljen oštrinom mača na predmete koji rastu pod njegovim pogledom – to je sam Po.

...have traditionally had a service orientation. This is evident even in the history of engineering societies. The first engineers to form professional societies were civil engineers ([see Florman, p. 51)], those concerned with public works for the public good. This is also reflected in the Codes of Ethics, which place public service as a higher priority than service to employer. The satisfaction resulting from such service is not due to public recognition, but is the satisfaction of a job well done. If desiring public recognition, the engineers of this century would have become physicians or lawyers, but they chose to work on the seemingly small pieces of large projects without great public acclaim. A famous quote from Herbert Hoover illustrates this engineering view: Engineering is a great profession. There is a fascination of watching a figment of the imagination emerge, through the aid of science, to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in stone or metal or energy. Then it brings jobs home to men. Then it elevates the standards of living and adds to the comfort of life. That is the engineer’’s high privilege. The great liability of the engineer, compared to men of other professions, is that his works are out in the open where all can see them. His acts, step by step, are in hard substance. He cannot bury his mistakes in the grave, like the doctors. He cannot argue them into thin air or blame the judge, like the lawyers. He......

J Edgar Hoover Rise to Power

...century J. Edgar Hoover was one of the most powerful officials in the Federal government of the United States. As head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 1924 until his death in 1972, he was the nation’s chief law enforcement officer. His intimate knowledge of politicians and government operations made him a man to be feared by elected officials, and none of the eight presidents under whom he served dared fire him. J.Edgar Hoover was born on January 1, 1895, in Washington D.C. He attended George Washington University and earned a degree in 1917. In 1919 he became assistant to Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer in the Department of Justice. It was Palmer who instigated the post World War I “red scare,” an anti-Communist hysteria that led to the deportation of many aliens. Hoover was put in charge of the deportations. When Hoover became director of the Bureau in 1924, he quickly formed an elite force of powerful law enforcement officers. He enhanced the FBI’s fame by capturing many gangsters, bank robbers, and other lawbreakers. After World War II he waged a relentless fight against internal subversion. The 1970’s often criticized Hoover for his authoritarian methods. He died in Washington, D.C., on May 2, 1972. In the rest of the paper I will explain more in depth of how J. Edgar Hoover rose to power and why he is considered one of the most corrupt men to ever hold a government position. It is not very difficult to figure out the most outstanding characteristic of J.......

Herbert Hoover

...Herbert Hoover Vicki L.Ware HIST102 Heidi Kyle November 24, 2014 Hebert Hoover This short paper will look at what things that Herbert Hoover he accomplished that endeared him to the American public and set up his successful Presidential run in 1928. The paper will also look at his Quaker roots, lack of knowledge concerning the Washington political highway, and poor communication skills that prevent the American people from re-electing him in the 1932 Presidential campaign. And not knowing prior to the 1932 election what programs he was instituting during the Great Depression that could have potentially gotten him re-elected in 1932. As with all history, historians read, interpret and then write their findings in documentation as to whether or not a historic event or person lived up to what the expectation of the outcome at that point and time. When discussing whether or not Herbert Hoover succeeded or not during his Presidency one must take into account is background. Herbert Clark Hoover was born in 1874 into a Quaker family, which influenced his entire life. Mr. Hoover learned from his Quaker roots “that men are not mere abstractions but that they are individual units of a social order”1. This doctrine set in place the building blocks on how Mr. Hoover view the world and for his sense of justice and fair play. Research point out that true to his Quaker roots Mr. Hoover believed that all business transactions should be tempered with a sense of justice and......

...To: Date: December 2 At the meeting last week, J&J was considering how it should account for the Shiny Teeth coupon drop that took place on October 1, 2012. As discussed of your concerns, we conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards general accepted in the United States of America. My responsibility is to express an opinion on our findings of the audit. I believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. Our focus was on the Shiny Teeth coupon drop. The accounting issue is determining redemption rate offered on September 1 and drop on October 1, 2012. According to FASB Accounting Standards Codification 605-50-05-1a a vendor's accounting for consideration given by a vendor to a customer (including both a reseller of the vendor’s products and an entity that purchases the vendor’s products from a reseller). Such consideration (including sales incentives) offered by a vendor on either a limited or a continuous basis to a customer may take various forms including discounts, coupons, rebates, and free products or services. The accounting issue is the correct recognition of coupons offered on the sale of toothpaste. We will address the issue of timing and measurement of the revenues and liabilities resulting from the coupon. Next, we looked at the effect of the Shiny Teeth coupon drop on its financial and how it should be recognized. The sale incentive (coupon) offered by the company and retailer reduced the price of the......

J&J Memo

...long-lived assets and implications associated with Johnson and Johnson’s accounting methods.  In this memo we would like to cover five main topics: long-lived assets, depreciation and amortization, J&J policies regarding intangible assets, cash flow statements, and asset turnover/ return on assets. In 2013, J&J reported three different types of long-lived assets on their Consolidated Balance Sheet. The first kind reported was Plant, Property, and Equipment. The second one was Intangible Assets and third was Goodwill. We will be investigating these three assets in further detail.  J&J reported $16,710 million net worth of PP&E. Within this major asset category are many sub accounts: Land & Improvements, Building & Building Equipment, and Construction in Progress, Machine & Equipment, and Depreciation.  Johnson & Johnson uses the straight-line depreciation method for its assets.  In 2013, there was $2.7 billion of accumulated depreciation and amortization of capitalized interested; it increased about $.2 billion since 2012. Table 1 lays out the estimated useful lives of the assets. The company capitalizes certain computer software and development cost which are amortized over the span of 3-8 years. Next, we will be discussing Intangible Assets of the company. J&J reports $1,363 million worth of amortization expense. In 2012, they reported about $1,146 million.  The average amortization periods for patents and trademarks and customer......

J&J Analysis

...Summers Daniel Vijayakumar SUMMARY Johnson & Johnson (“J&J”), one of the largest, well-known organizations in the world, produces products for consumer health care and for use by medical professionals in care and diagnostics. Some of their most recognizable brands include Tylenol, Neutrogena, Listerine, Band-Aid and Reactine. These, along with their many other brands, are produced in over 60 countries by more than 250 different operating companies that make up the J&J organization. In total, more than 114,000 employees are part of the organization, and they are managed through a system of decentralized management with a wide span of control. J&J faces the unique challenge of trying to create one corporate culture that all parts of their organization believe in and adhere to. One of the strategies used to combat these obstacles is values-based leadership and linking employees and subsidiaries under a common set of values, as outlined in "Our Credo". J&J works extremely hard to uphold their Credo, which was written by Robert Wood Johnson – one of the founders of the organization – in 1943. It is a set of values that J&J vow to work by and which lend to the present culture that is so important in the organization today. J&J also attempts to induce a culture of innovation and promote diversity and acceptance of differences throughout its subsidiaries. Since organizational culture is such a vital piece in connecting J&J’s subsidiaries, a very strong culture has developed. In......

Hoover Dam

...Essay 2: Hoover Dam The Hoover Dam, once known as the Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between Arizona and Nevada. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression and it was dedicated on September 30, 1935, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Its construction was the result involving thousands of workers and unfortunately cost over one hundred lives. The dam was controversially named after President Herbert Hoover. The center of Boulder City, Elm Street, had been surrounded by the Grace Community Church. Reverend Thomas Stevenson was sure of delivering forgiveness to the town over the corruption of the project of the reservation. Most likely it would gather many citizens of Nevada, but mostly to prove if Tom Stevenson was part of it, then it had to be done. Since about 1900, the Black Canyon and nearby Boulder Canyon had been investigated for their potential support a dam that would control floods, provide irrigation water and produce hydroelectric power. In 1928, Congress authorized the project. The winning bid to build the dam was submitted by a consortium called Six Companies, Inc., which began construction on the dam in early 1931. Such a large concrete structure had never been built before, and some of the techniques were unproven. The fervid summer weather and the lack of facilitates near the site also presented difficulties. Nevertheless, Six Companies turned over the dam to......

J&J Case

...Problem Identification The major issue in this case is identifying the positioning and sales strategy of a new face powder product which can aid in growing the company. The primary aim is to raise the confidence of J&J employees by creating a successful product which is readily accepted in the marketplace even if the sales and profits are modest initially. Situation Overview During market analysis it has been found that one of its baby products had been used extensively by young female adults and women in a completely unintended fashion. This clearly provides an evidence of vacuum in this space and the need and opportunity to develop and market a new face powder product catering to the needs of these women. The product can be positioned either as a cosmetic/toiletry product and targeted specifically at young/adult women of varying buying power capabilities. The choice of distribution channels also plays a critical role while targeting these segments. Estimates (15-month period): Revenue: 6,500,00 peso => 2,600,000(compacts) & 3,900,000 (refills) [1:1.5 ratio] Price: 39.95(compact) vs 24.95(refills) Expected purchases : 2.6M/39.95 = 65,081(compacts) & 3.9/24.95= 156,312(refills) Potential Marketing Strategies Option 1(given in case): Toiletry product - Value Pricing - AB & C class urban females, 16-25 years old - Distribution channel- Supermarkets * Appeals to mothers looking for non-cosmetic products. * Super market distribution......
