Many small businesses and larger organizations are facing the unnecessary high cost of operations because people have misappropriated the use of company's resources. While most companies consider their employees to be assets many often see them as liabilities. Larger organizations typically can afford internal control checks and balances needed to deter many of the more significant fraud and embezzlement schemes (IRS 2001). Small business often must trust individuals, however are more often subject to employee theft. This theft can go unseen and have a drastic effect on any business. Unfortunately, those organizations that can least afford internal controls, can also, least afford fraud or

Thieves, how I hate them so much! Just yesterday I had been a thief's victim. He stole one of the most valuable things I've ever owned, a Rolex watch. I soon found it was my best friend who committed the crime. I thought of many solutions to resolve the theft of my expensive watch. Some solutions I kept in my brain are to threaten or negotiate with him about how bad stealing is, tell the higher authorities on him, and also I considered the fact that completely ignoring the situation would also help.
First is the option of threatening or talking to my best friend of how larceny is a very bad concept. This would be quite difficult because I would have to meet directly with him and have a

this personal contact has decreased as more business is conducted of the phone and electronically.What are the potential pitfalls you see with electronic contracting? As a consumer this could create a problem in personal identification. Is it really you that e-signed the contract? Most consumers are do not have access to personal smart cards or biometrics and if some un-scrupulous people get the information that is used to sign the contract electronically then you as a consumer are liable for a contract you have no idea about. There has been a rash of identity theft lately and this could considerably cause liability issues for all parties involved.These are just some of the problems and benefits that occur when business transactions are done solely online.ReferencesCheeseman, H.

Dear Teft: As I read about you, I wonder why, although you have a genteel background, you chose a rebellious form of behavior. You wired cars, took them for joy rides, as well as other forms of mischief. It was not, however, your criminal background that caused your parents to punish you by sending you to camp at Box Canyon. Instead, it was because of your actions when you traveled to Exeter School with your father to petition for admission. In the middle of your Exeter interview, you began to inform the headmaster of your illustrious car theft career. It was said about you that "as far was you were concerned, Exeter could shove itself up its own anal orifice." Not all

Greece theft was a capital offense. Hammurabi also prohibited theft, making punishments for those who would not obey his law. Western Culture, more specifically the US, forbids theft in law and value due to the overwhelming Christian roots of our founding fathers. Because virtually all the founding fathers were Christian, they modeled a government after their morals (which matched those of Ancient Jews) and ideals they took from the Bible. Today it is illegal to steal because society and the government have deemed it so, being taught from youth that stealing is wrong. What we find here is that we are not the first to say stealing is wrong, but the idea is as old as law itself.Additionally, the

assured for preservation efforts. In one optimist projection, "scientists would replace thieves." If cultural relics were not strictly regulated by the state, then wealthy nations will simply plunder poor nations with art. Int'l distribution of Art objects=global inequality. Other side: Cultural internationalists argue, China and similar states need to expand, not restrict, the trade in cultural artifacts. There should be fewer restrictions, which are said to encourage theft and black markets.One is legal ownership under straightforward and honorable sales. Second, concerns care and protection, protecting the art on behalf of all humanity (ex. China during the Cultural Revolution and the Red Guard violence). Third, who wants to see Chinese art only in China, Greek art only in Greece? If art was under strict regulation by the state, then they would manipulate art to increase nationalism or political advancement.

-pencil honesty tests typically ask applicants directly about their attitudes towards theft or their past experiences with theft. Given the recent development of these tests, there is not a great deal of independent evidence (that is, evidence not generated by those who publish and sell the tests) on their reliability and validity. A large-scale independent review of validity studies conducted by the publishers of many integrity tests suggests they can be predictive of both theft and other disruptive behaviours. One of the few predictive studies conducted by someone other than a publisher of honesty tests also suggests that these tests predict theft in convenience store settings."(De Cieri, H

The Hurricane hit in the summer of 1789. The Third Estate formed the National Assembly and pledged to form a new constitution, ending the monarchy. This was called the Tennis Court Oath.

Character Analysis of Hugo's JavertHugo's character Javert sees anyone who may have commit a crime as simple as the theft of a loaf of bread as a social malefactor, a blight on all of society, a prime evil who needs to be eliminated, removed from the general population, and a devil that can be neither reformed nor tamed. Javert is the true rationalist. Like Medieval philosophers, he believes that people will naturally resort to evil, and that these people can never be saved or reformed. Javert is the true rationalist because he believes the law is the highest authority, sees Jean Valjean as purely evil, and because he wholeheartedly believes in the infallibility of the law.Javert believes

The mirroring, the revelation of brutality beneath the saturnalia comedy such as when he deliberately sends poor people off to die so he can benefit from them, creates an ironic reflection of the corruption in the kingdom and in the rebel camp.Works CitedShakespeare, William.

cases the actus reus will be an explicit act (theft, assault, etc). In others it will be a prohibited state of affairs (e.g., having an offensive weapon in a public place). In some cases the actus can be an omission to act, but usually only when the accused had a legal duty to act. Sometimes the actus may not be the event itself, but the effect it has on the victim (e.g., in rape), or the circumstances that surround it (e.g., bigamous marriage).It is fundamental that the actus reus be a voluntary act; if a defendant could not have acted any other way then not only is he not liable, then the actus reus is deemed not have occurred.

When the communists took over a country, one of the first things that they did was to confiscate all the privately-held weapons, to deny the people the physical ability to resist tyranny. But even more insidious than the theft of the people's weapons was the theft of their history. Official Communist "historians" rewrote history to fit the current party line. In many countries, revered national heroes were excised from the history books, or their real deeds were distorted to fit Communist ideology, and Communist killers and criminals were converted into official "saints."
