Factual Scenario 1
Jeremy Jip is not considered Lulu’s employee. Based on the criteria used by the courts to decide whether a worker is categorized as an employee or independent contractor, Jeremy wouldn’t be considered Lulu’s employee. He would be considered an independent contractor because Lulu has no control over the details of Jeremy’s work performance. She does not exercise considerable control of his work, his occupation is distinctly different from that of Lulu’s, his work is usually done without supervision, Lulu does not supply his tools for his occupation, and the job that he’s hired for requires a high degree of skill. Also, his term of employment is only until the house is sold and his one-time fee is paid at the completion of the sale. According to the text, an independent contractor is “a person who contracts with another to do something for him or her but who is not controlled by the other nor subject to the others right to control with respect to his or her physical conduct in the performance of the undertaking. He or she may not be an agent” (Clarkson, Miller, Cross, 2012, p. 625).
Lulu is not liable for Mary and Ollie’s injuries because, even though Jeremy Jip is an agent representing LuLu Lowlife, his day to day activities are still those of an independent contractor, not an employee. According to the text “To determine whether the relationship of the parties is that of employer and servant or that of employer and independent contractor, the primary test is whether the employer retains the right to control the time, manner and method of executing the work” (Clarkson, Miller, Cross, 2012, p. 626). Again, Jeremy’s occupational activities are unsupervised, which is an important factor for determining his employee status. Lulu did not supply Jeremy’s tool, his car, nor did she have any indication that Mary would be a passenger in Jeremy’s personal vehicle.
To understand what fiduciary duties were breached by Jip, first we have to know what fiduciary duties are. According to (Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Law 1996) “a duty obligating a fiduciary (as an agent or trustee) to act with loyalty and honesty and in a manner consistent with the best interests of the beneficiary of the fiduciary relationship (as a principal or trust beneficiary)” (http://dictionary.findlaw.com/definition/duty.html#sthash.i9k9ZsV9.dpuf).
To relate to this particular scenario, Jeremy Jip would be the fiduciary and his fiduciary duty would be acting in the best interest of Lulu Lowlife, which establishes his fiduciary relationship to Lulu [the principal]. The first fiduciary duty that was breached by Jeremy was, driving Mary Moron and crashing into Ollie Onfoote. The transportation of the perspective purchaser and the wreckless driving of the independent contractor were not in the best interest of the principal [Lulu]. Another fiduciary duty breached by Jeremy was acceptance of a secret commission in the amount of $5,000 as a bonus from Ms. Moron, because fiduciaries may not profit from their relationship with their principals unless they have the principals consent.
Even though Lulu Lowlife became aware of the $5,000 bonus that Jeremy Jip accepted from Mary Moron, she knowingly completed the conveyance contract for the asking price of the farmhouse in the amount of $31,500. When Lulu hired Jeremy Jip it is implied that their agreement gave Jeremy exclusive agency which was Lulu’s consent to not interfere with Jeremy’s duties to sell the farm house. I would say that the conveyance contract was enforceable because it would violate the exclusive agency and expose Lulu to liability for Jeremy’s lost profits. It is also possible that Jeremy Jip could have withheld further performance in closing the sale and demanded that Lulu give an accounting if Lulu did not agree on Jeremy accepting the $5,000. Lulu probably completed the conveyance contract, knowing about the $5,000 bonus because she recognized her duty to indemnify Jeremy Jip for any liabilities incurred during the transaction and considered the bonus as Jeremy’s commission.…...

Although there is a cost of 20 million on programming, having average rating 1,2% with a relatively high CPM makes Ad Revenue higher and as a result Net Income becomes $168 million. Net income in Scenario 2 is $151 million lower than Scenario 3, whereas Scenario 1 has the lowest $77 million. 2) Analyze the segmentation options and discuss pros and cons of each. Scenario1: Targeting on women aged 18 to 34, with a cross segment strategy by focusing on on Fashionistas, Planners & Shoppers and Situationalists. Advantages: Increase in rating from 1.0 to 1.2 with the increase in awareness and viewing of the channel by investing in a major marketing and advertisement campaign. We can expect promising returns in the long run with the rise of popularity of the network.  Disadvantages: While the level competition is getting higher, we cannot wait for the long run, what we need is instant return for short run. The strategy does not put an end to competition to gain Premium segments so there is a risk of facing lower CPM. Since there is no real change in viewers’ type and programming, the CPM......

...ratings.  It is a right time to gain more profits when this industry is booming. Threat:  TFC should compete with the regular programming for buying rating and demographics and with the fashion-specific one for contents.  TFC has to develop a unique strategy and differentiate its products to prevent copies.  TFC will lose attractiveness to cable affiliates if just keeps the worst rating. (See Appendix 1)  If the new target group is smaller than the old one, the rating will decrease, which will lead to the losing of ad buyers who use surveys and programs as decision aid.  If initiatives can not satisfy most consumers, TFC will lose the cable operator, affiliate and distribution support easily.

...growth momentum. But the rising capacity and inventory numbers with sluggish or declining sales really put to risk the ability of Crocs to execute their long-term growth strategy. Assumption: Profit margin is assumed to be gross profit margins (sales – COGS). Profit margin can be affected by two factors, sales revenue and COGS. To test the sensitivity of Crocs business value given changes to sales revenue or COGS, I tried three different scenarios. In the first scenario, I assumed the sales revenue was declining, the second case where COGS was rising and the third one where both the Sales and COGS started declining. The resulting effect on the equity valuation is evident from the tables listed below for the three scenarios. Scenario1: Rising COGS Fig6. Scenario1 - Equity Valuation Impact on Valuation Fig7. Secnario1- Impact Scenario2: Declining Sales Revenue Fig8. Scenario2 - Equity Valuation Impact on Valuation Fig9. Scenario2 - Impact Scenario3: Declining Sales & Rising COGS Fig10. Scenario3 - Equity Valuation Impact on Valuation Fig11. Scenario3 - Impact So based on the sensitivity analysis, we can conclude that Crocs valuation is greatly impacted by sales revenue i.e. Growth and how efficiently it can control costs (fixed costs). The three scenarios have demonstrated how declining sales and rising COGS can put a company to both operating and financial risk. The analysis has clearly shown the immense dependence of Crocs to maintain......

SSR Analysis for Plant 2 For Plant 2, Units #1 and #3, and unit #2 and unit #4 operate in a combined cycle mode. Combustion turbines are furnished for units #1 and #2 while steam turbines are used in units #3 and #4. For contingency scenario 1 with unit #1 in service, there is no indication for the potential of induction generator effect. The same conclusion is drawn when unit #3 is the only unit in service at Plant 2. As for torsional interaction in this scenario, there is a potential for torsional interaction at an electric A. SSR Analysis for Plant 1 For the system configuration with contingency scenario1 and unit #1 in service, there is no indication for the potential frequency of 36 Hz when only unit #1 is in service. When unit #3 is the only unit in service the potential torsional interaction is negligible. The operating scenario when all units are in service shifts the potential for torsional interaction to a higher electric frequency, 36.7 Hz, when viewed from unit #1 and no problems with torsional interaction for unit #3. As for contingency scenario 2, the following results were obtained: 1. When only unit #1 is in service, there is a potential for induction generator effect at an electric frequency of 33.7 Hz and 55.2 Hz. The system resistance values at these two electrical resonant frequencies are 0.0024 p.u and 0.0075......

Disadvantages: Since there is no real change in viewers’ type and programming, the CPM will drop by 10% or more and competitors will continue taking its market share. Scenario2: Focus on Fashionistas segment Advantages: This segment has the highest interest in fashion and is strong in the highly valued 18-34 female demographic, which will lead to increase in CPM. Disadvantages: Fashionistas is the smallest segment in four clusters .Require spending of additional $15million per year on programming to attract and retain interest of this segment. Scenario3: Focus on both Fashionistas plus Shoppers & Planners clusters Advantages: Dual-targeting will ensure the average viewers and rating. It is expected that rating will grow to 1.2 with a potential CPM of $2.50 Disadvantages: Require spending of additional $20million to ensure there were selections aimed at both segments.
