On Halloween Day, Christine Narvaez drove her automobile onto the parking lot of a busy supermarket. Narvaez had her 2-year-old grandchild with her.

On Halloween Day, Christine Narvaez drove her automobile onto the parking lot of a busy supermarket. Narvaez had her 2-year-old grandchild with her. The youngster was riding, unconstrained, in a booster seat. Narvaez saw a friend and decided to stop for a brief chat. She parked the car and exited the car, leaving the keys in the ignition and the motor running. The youngster crawled behind the wheel, slipped the car into gear, and set it in motion. The car struck Marguerite O’Neill, a woman in her 80s, pinned her between the Narvaez car and another car and slowly crushed the woman’s trapped body. O’Neill suffered a crushed hip, a broken arm, and four cracked ribs, and she lost more than 40 percent of her blood supply as a result of internal bleeding. She spent one month in a hospital’s intensive care unit and had to be placed in a nursing home and was deprived of the ability to live independently.

Narvaez carried the $ 20,000 minimum amount of liability insurance allowed by law. She was insured by Gallant Insurance Company. O’Neill’s medical bills totaled $105,000. O’Neill sued Narvaez and her insurance company, Gallant. O’Neill’s attorney demanded the policy limit of $20,000 from Gallant in settlement of O’Neill’s claim and offered a complete release from liability for Narvaez. Three Gallant insurance adjusters, its claims manager, and the lawyer of the law firm representing Gallant for the case all stated to John Moss, Gallant’s executive vice president, that Gallant should accept the settlement offer. Moss rejected their advice and refused to settle the case.

One year later, on the eve of trial, Moss offered to settle for the $20,000 policy limit, but O’Neill then refused. The case went to trial, and the jury returned a verdict against Narvaez of $731,063. Gallant paid $20,000 of this amount, closed its file, and left Narvaez liable for the $711,063 excess judgment. To settle her debt to O’Neill, Narvaez assigned her claims against Gallant to O’Neill. O’Neill then sued Gallant for a bad faith tort for breaching the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing that Gallant owed to Narvaez to settle the case.

Question:

  • Is Gallant Insurance Company liable for a bad faith tort?
  • Did Gallant act unethically?jay

The event planner of the County Street Fair is deciding how many backup electric generators to have available onsite.

The event planner of the County Street Fair is deciding how many backup electric generators to have available onsite. The generator can be rented for a fixed rate of $1600 per unit for the entire fair whether or not it is used (non-refundable), and if it is used there is an extra $500 operating expense per unit. Due to the long setup time and logistical constraints, the decision has to be made prior to the event and no extra unit can be delivered during the fair.
The probability of requiring certain number of backup generator during the fair can be described as follows:
Units Required Probability
0 0.15
1 0.45
2 0.20
3 0.20

When a generator is required but not available, the lost revenue is estimated to be $5000.

a. Determine the optimal service level (Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)

b. How many backup generators should the planner rent?

Jean-Baptiste Lamarck believed that physical diversity among animals could be explained by physical stressors experienced by one generation being passed on to the next. Giraffes, therefore, have long necks because one giraffe, a long time ago, had to stretch out and reach for food, and this characteristic was passed on to its offspring.

What are the problems with Lamarck’s theory of evolution?

For centuries, astronomers could not explain the strange path by which the planet Mercury orbited the sun. Urbain Jean Joseph Le Verrier theorized in 1859 that Mercury’s strange orbit was the result of another planet interfering with the gravitational pull of the sun. Le Verrier named this other planet Vulcan.

Research the history of Vulcan to explain how its existence was tested and finally disproved.

Pharmacy Tech: Investigate a national organization and write papers covering the required areas. Investigate two associations – one national and one local. During your investigation, identify the following for each association:

  • Cost to join – Professional membership vs. student membership
  • Benefits/Advantages of joining
  • Disadvantages of joining

Submit the paper on your findings. This paper is to be typewritten at least two pages in APA format. Use a reference page (cite your work).

Notes: The associations have to be related to pharmacy or a pharmacy tech or health care field.

I live in USA (Michigan) SO THE two associations – one national and one local HAVE TO BE KOWN IN THE UNITED STATE.

For example: The Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) is a national professional association of pharmacists, health care practitioners and others who develop and provide clinical, educational and business management services on behalf of more than 200 million Americans covered by a managed pharmacy benefit. AMCP members are committed to a simple goal: providing the best available pharmaceutical care for all patients.Some of the tasks AMCP’s more than 6,000 members perform include: for more information about this association visit http://www.amcp.org/AboutUs.aspx?

For example: The Michigan Association for Local Public Health is Unique in the nation, the Michigan Association for Local Public Health was founded in 1985 as a private, non-profit, 501-C3 state association. The Association is organized to represent Michigan’s 45 city, county, and district health departments before the state and federal legislative and executive branches of government: for more information about this association visit http://www.malph.org/
