Engineering Ethics of Titanic Sinking

...The last oversight I will look at is the number of life boats on the Titanic. There was a law that required all vessels over 10,000 tons to have at least 16 life boats on deck. These were considered to be unappealing to the eye, so to try and give the greatest pleasure to their passengers the Titanic only had 20. Even though its massive size would have required over four times as many boats. This decision was made because the Titanic was “unsinkable” so the life boats were more on board to h...

Ethics Essay ­ “Miss Evers’ Boys”

Ethics Case Study Henry’s Daughters

...All these ideas are based on my perception about the topic. It is a way to show how my perception disagrees with Henry’s. Instead of following a code of ethics, Henry has an "ends justify the means" philosophy and does not consider ethical and moral implications in his work. He bribes DOT executives and tangles himself in conflicts of interest. In the end, Henry pays the consequences for his actions when the senate ethics committee finds him guilty of unethical practices. His reputation is ru...

...One knows that unpleasant experiences with the police affect individual opinions. Ideally, an officer's decision-making is based on his code of ethics.

An officer has a responsibility to the whole community in a manner such as will inspire trust and confidence...

Professional Ethics and Civic Morals

...While the American government structure attempts to hedge itself against this danger by having a governing body broken into two major parts and limits on the executive branch’s control. But given the right set of circumstances such as terrorism and blind fear, the democratic power of the people can easily be superseded by the hands of only a few. Fear and intimidation work on many levels, some more subtle than others, all leading to an obedience and control, which are at the heart of a totalit...

A Review on Lifeboat Ethics

...Essentially, the author’s negligence of social injustice against impoverished people and the ethical issue indifference is just a result of his bias for the rich countries.

The present project is designed to sustain these accomplishments by developing and launching SPEC to institutionalize ethical busin...

Ethics, Privacy in the Workplace

...Whereas the employee may argue that utilitarianism is focused on the results of the action not whether the action is morally right or wrong for the privacy of the individual worker.

Problem Areas in Legal Ethics

Standards and Ethics of McDonald’s

...It is my belief after this, that despite the Ronald McDonald House and the few times of donating to hurricane or earthquake victims that McDonald’s needs a severe reorganization as to how to better suit their employees as well as a complete policy to include a good ethics and discriminatory regulation.

Ethics in Our Everyday Lives

...These businessmen, who were well within their rights to demand the land back since it wasn't being utilized for its donated purpose, instead did the ethical thing at great cost to themselves.

Whether decisions made affect the operation of a home, small business, large corporation, or a nation, a clear ethic...
