How would you change the laws on a state or federal level, if at all?

Before 2011, sports betting was not necessarily legal in all states. Check out this U.S. Supreme Court case to see why: https://www.oyez.org/cases/2017/16-476
Use Nexis Uni to find your state’s gambling law. Summarize it, then apply it to your analysis of the following fact pattern.
Michigan Gambling Law

Michigan Gambling Laws


Nexis Uni Link. (May not work it often ask for sign which we do not have)
§ 750.301. Accepting money or valuable thing contingent on uncertain event., MCLS § 750.301 (This document is current through Act 188 of the 2022 Regular Legislative Session and E.R.O. 2022-1), available at https://advance-lexis-com.ezproxy1.apus.edu/api/document?collection=statutes-legislation&id=urn:contentItem:56VF-9981-6RDJ-84XD-00000-00&context=1516831.
A pair of clients come into your office in your state of residence. They have been participating in online gambling and their employer notified them that it is a fireable offense. They are now worried about criminal charges. What can you tell them based on the law in your state? What other information do you need to give a solid analysis?
I would present them with the current law of the state of Michigan and explain to them why what they are doing is in fact legal and further educate them on their right to gamble.
I would also request if they have signed and legally binding documents with the employer that prohibits them from gambling or if the job they have cannot be associated with gambling in anyway.
What do you think about the state of gambling laws in the US? How would you change the laws on a state or federal level, if at all?
I have two thoughts on one hand I 100% support adults being able to legally do something as many gamble responsibly but on the other hand I do not like the way gambling destroys many lives as they get addicted to the “chance” of “winning big”.
If I would change anything it would be how gambling is advertised it is marketed in a way to lead you to believe you can “WIN BIG” when chances are incredibly slim. These practices unfortunately get promoted so heavily it lures in more desperate individuals vs the put together gamblers. Far too many see gambling as a chance to get out of there bad situation which never works out in the end.

You are given the following information about the mid-size truck market in the usa, specifically the fictitious mullins trucking corporation, inc. in rochester, ny.

You are given the following information about the mid-size truck market in the USA, specifically the
fictitious Mullins Trucking Corporation, Inc. in Rochester, NY. The graph you are about to construct will
appear as the 4th graph in your presentation to the Mullins Board of Directors as they try to get a handle
on the supply and demand for their products. This is copyrighted material
From 2010–2015, the prices of their best-selling mid-size trucks, measured in $10,000’s of US Dollars,
was: 85, 75, 65, 55, 45, 35, 25, and 10. During that time, the corresponding amounts that the Mullins
Corporation was willing to sell at those same prices, measured in 100,000s of mid-size trucks was: 9, 8, 7,
6, 5, 4, 3, and 2. Meanwhile, the amount that consumers were willing to purchase at
those same prices, also measured in 100,000s of units, was: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. The production
data was retrieved from various hard copy annual reports of the Mullins Corporation while the
consumer data was retrieved from Truckers Digest, in an article written by Rick Trombett, in their March
2022 issue, pages 49-53, “How Many Trucks Can One Firm Produce and Sell.” This is copyrighted
material
From 2016-2021, there was some change in that market. The Mullins Corporation is not exactly clear on
all that occurred in the market, but they know the following. Their customers seemed willing to
purchase more trucks; specifically, 2.0 more units at each and every price point compared to what they
were willing to purchase in 2010-2015. Of course, the Mullins Corporation increased its production;
specifically, a production level increase of 3.0 units at each and every price point they were willing to sell
as compared to 2010-2015. This is copyrighted material
a. In one clearly constructed, legible, and properly labeled graph created using Excel, construct the
supply and demand curves that correspond to 2010-2015 and those from 2016-2021. (45 pts).
This is copyrighted material
b. Referencing the curves constructed in part A, clearly state the equilibrium price and quantity in
the two different time periods (2010-2015 and 2016-2021). (1.5 pts). This is copyrighted
material
c. Using your supply and demand analytical skills, and referencing only the curves constructed in
part A, offer one reason why the price and quantity are different in the 2nd time period as
compared to the first. (Hint: For this, we do not want to know why the curves may have shifted,
but how their shifting resulted in that particular answer.) (6 pts). This is copyrighted
material
d. Assume that in the 2nd time period, there was only a change in demand. What would the
equilibrium price and quantity be now? (1.5 pts). This is copyrighted material
e. Again, assume in the 2nd time period there was only a change in demand. Using your knowledge
of the determinants of supply and demand, and referencing only the curves in part A, offer one
concrete cause as to why that demand may have moved in the direction it did. (6 pts). This is

* Anne Lamo^’s ShiAy First DraCs
• Gurminder K. Bhambra’s arXcle on global sociology Write a close analysis of the text, and explore possible interpreta5ons and
applica5ons of it.
If you wish you may choose to focus on just one part of a text, but you should choose it carefully, staXng your reasons, and be sure to locate it in the context of the larger piece of wriXng.
Remember that your iniXal understanding of the text is a necessary first stage, but your analysis begins once you already understand it (and you can assume that your readers have also understood it).
The key quesXons an analysis must address are these: • What effects does the text achieve?
o How did it affect me the first/second/third Xme? (this is of interest not as a ma^er of personal biography, but in order to answer the following quesXon)
o How might it affect others? What effect does it achieve? • What specific techniques were employed and what choices were made?
o How is the whole piece organized and structured? o What parts can it be divided into, and how are they sequenced and
related? o How is each of the individual parts organized, and why? o What is the purpose of each paragraph or secXon? o What stylisXc consideraXons went into the wriXng of the sentences?
o Is there any pa^ern to the kinds of words (and/or images) that were chosen?
* What were the other possible alternaXves which the writer or speaker rejected? What does this piece not do, which it could (or perhaps should) have done?
* How do the various choices at each of the above levels go together to achieve the effect?
* On the internal evidence of the text, what does it appear that the writer or speaker set out to do?
Having completed the analysis, you will be in a posiXon to a^empt an interpretaXon of the significance and success of the text.
* Did the writer succeed in achieving his/her aims or in doing anything else?
* What does the text as a whole, considered in context, really mean?
* How should we think of the text?
* What wrong readings of it might people come to if they were not paying close enough a^enXon, or if they were trying to jusXfy posiXons of their own?
* Are there any other texts or contexts in the light of which this text might look different?
* You need to find some other relevant texts to refer to:
o Who else has addressed the same topic?
o Who disagrees with your writer? Why?
o What views are in the academic literature, in the media and elsewhere? Where is your text situated in relaXon to other texts?
o What other styles and approaches have people tried to achieve comparable ends?
o Has there been any direct commentary published about the text you are examining?
o Do we have grounds to anXcipate further reacXons in the future? • Please refer to at least two secondary texts in addiXon to the text you are
analyzing, and cite all of them properly using MLA.
Only aBer analyzing and interpreXng the text will you be able to give a reasoned assessment of its significance and to apply it to quesXons with which you are currently concerned.

This activity counts towards the activities category.

For this activity you will use a simple process from your own life: preparing a family meal for a large family. This process is designed to help you recognize how eliminating waste, particularly transportation waste, can make processes easier and eliminate the inefficient layouts.
The first step in appraising any situation, is to stop and ask yourself “What bothers me about this”? In the case of an existing business operation, it is helpful to gain an appreciation for the current state, not only in terms of the relative position of the equipment, but the nature of the environment as well. Is it noisy? Are people rushing around from machine to machine? Are their hands full? As they move through the facility, are they taking a circuitous route around infrequently used machines or stacks of inventory? Are the aisles wide enough for the traffic? The best vantage point to observe the work environment is from ceiling level. A scissor lift or tall ladder can provide a very different perspective to an otherwise familiar situation. Safety is, of course, paramount.
Activity Grading
This activity counts towards the Activities category. It is graded on pass/fail basis. If you complete all components of the activity on time, you will receive a pass. You will also receive qualitative feedback from your instructor about your completed activity.
It is recognized that the Activities category only counts for 5% of your overall course grade, which is not substantial considering that there are five activities to be completed within it. You will, however, benefit from completing each activity when it comes to your Major Assignment. Your Major Assignment requires that three different tools/diagrams be included. Receiving feedback from your instructor about the construction of this spaghetti diagram now will assist you in producing a higher-quality Major Assignment.
Activity Instructions
Part 1: Creating and Analyzing Your Diagram
Make a floor plan of the work area using graph paper (there are many websites where you can print graph paper from, if need be). In this case, the work area may be your kitchen. Be sure the area is drawn in “plan view” (as you would see it from above), showing where the equipment is located. It is critical that you draw the area to scale. Some drawing tips/procedures:
Draw a rectangle that is proportional to your work area, centered on the paper. Place the columns on your drawing first. These are helpful as reference points for placing your equipment. Remember to divide the actual dimensions, in your measurement unit of choice (i.e. feet, meters), by the drawing scale to convert each dimension to measurements on your drawing.
Next, place each piece of equipment on your drawing. It is enough to represent each piece with a rectangle with dimensions equal to the maximum length and width of the machine. Keep in mind that you are interested in the open space between pieces of equipment, so be sure that your rectangle encapsulates the full reach of the work area (including guards, arms, etc.), not just the footprint of the base of the object/machine.
Note in each rectangle where the operator is located.
Label each rectangle with the name of the equipment.
Be sure to add all of the fixed storage locations and piles of inventory, spare parts, waste, garbage receptacles, etc., that are barriers to moving around. Check your dimensions frequently.
Make a few photocopies of your drawing, so that you can preserve your hard work for future use or in the case that you make an error and need to restart.
On a copy of your layout drawing, draw a line that follows each operator involved in your process as they go about their work. Use a different colour for each operator. Create a legend so you can keep track of which colour refers to which operator. Be patient while you observe the movements of your operators, if you are actually observing the work being done. You want to draw the whole path that each operator must follow from the time they become involved in the process until the process is complete.
In each case, either the material streams or the operator paths will create a series of overlapping and criss-crossing lines that will resemble a plate of spaghetti. This is an excellent visual representation of the distance traveled. In particular, it will illustrate the number of times a line of a particular colour crosses itself, indicating when equipment and/or storage locations are placed in the wrong order in relation to the sequence of operations of your process.
The issues that are illustrated in the spaghetti diagram represent improvement operations for consideration.
Using a Microsoft Word document, create a one-page list of the issues that you noticed in your operation while drawing the spaghetti diagram.
