cleverTutor only, I need help with this: The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was the immediate cause of World War I. But the events that led to the Great War go further back into the nineteenth century. As with the Boxer Rebellion of 1900, nationalism, imperialism, and militarism all played a part. Analyze how the forces of nationalism, imperialism, and militarism irrevocably led to World War I. Pay particular attention to the rise of Pan-Slavism in Eastern Europe and the corresponding rise of nationalism in German-speaking states. Analyze how the alliance system contributed to the ultimate outbreak of war. Then analyze the events that drew the United States into World War I. Clearly discuss why America first remained neutral between1914-1917. What role did ethnicity play in America’s neutrality? Then identify and analyze the specific events that led to America’s entrance into the war. Evaluate America’s contribution to the war effort and to what extent America’s entry contributed to the end of the war. Finally, analyze the events that led to the defeat of the Treaty of Versailles. What effect did this have on America’s role in the world during the 1920s and 1930s? Pay particular attention to the role of President Woodrow Wilson both during and after the war, in particular, his efforts to establish the League of Nations

So, you decide to hire some friends and pay them as they work, rather than go through the expense and procedure of bringing in “actual” employees. Your friends wear the business uniform, deal with vendors and customers, and tell friends and family that they work for the business. One friend/employee orders way too much from a vendor. The vendor has dealt with the person numerous times; in fact, the person has been ordering from the vendor for months. Since the person who ordered was not an ”employee,” but a friend you hired, are you liable to pay for the improper order?

HINT: See Chapters 10-14 of the text to help understand some of the legal issues covered in this assignment. Jim and Laura Buyer visit the local car dealership because they are interested in buying a new car. The car they currently have is aging and is starting to have mechanical problems. Jim and Laura would share the new car, and use it to go back and forth to work and school. Before going to the dealership, Jim and Laura decide that they can only afford $400.00 a month in car payments. Once at the car dealership, Jim and Laura meet Stan Salesman. Stan shows them several vehicles and Jim and Laura test-drive several of the cars. Jim and Laura particularly like the blue 4-door sedan. Therefore, they agree to give Stan Salesman a $100.00 deposit to hold the car for a day. Stan Salesman does not give them the receipt but guarantees that the $100.00 is refundable. No documents were signed. The next day, Stan Salesman calls Jim and Laura to ask them when they would like to take delivery of the car. Jim and Laura, on the way home from the dealership, decided that they were not going to buy the car because they did not want to spend that money each month. Therefore, Jim and Laura tell Stan salesman that they have decided not to buy the car and request their $100.00 deposit back. Stan insists that the $100.00 was a deposit on the car and was meant to be part of the contract to buy the car. Stan is very persistent and insistent that Jim and Laura have contracted to buy the car; therefore, the $100.00 will be applied to the purchase price of the car. Jim and Laura are shocked and angry as not only do they not want to spend the money, but now feel as though they are being duped by Stan Salesman. Jim and Laura have an appointment to see a lawyer in a few days, but know you are a student taking a business law class and come to you for advice. They are very frazzled, and understandably upset that they may have just purchased a car. Since you have been taking business law, you have read and understand the elements of a contract and the defenses to a contract. Therefore, although you are not a lawyer, you provide some basic advice from what you’ve learned in your business law class. In three to five (3-5) pages, advise Jim and Laura based on the above facts as presented, the material provided in the text, and material covered in the lecture. In your paper, be sure to address the following: Define the elements of a legal contract using examples from the scenario where applicable. Decide whether or not there was a contract for the purchase of the automobile. Identify the facts from the scenario which support your decision on whether or not a contract exists for the purchase of the automobile. Use at least two (2) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as quality academic resources. Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements: Typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length. Include a reference page. Citations and references must follow APA format. The reference page is not included in the required page length.

Capstone Project: Part IV – Board Room Power Point Presentation – “You’ve been working hard and have gained a lot of insight into your new role as CEO during your first 90 days on the job. During that time, you’ve developed your decision making and action plan (Project Parts I, II, and III) to take the organization forward. In doing so, you’ve taken a close look at the internal and external competitive environments, examined the financials, and determined what’s needed to accomplish your plan and what the payback should look like. You’ve also looked at the current people and structures in light of what may be needed to execute your strategy. Now, there’s just one thing left to do – convince the Board to give you the go-ahead. This week you make your pitch! As you prepare your “pitch” you want to ensure you fully understand the context so you seek counsel from your Chair. Your Chair has shared: Your previous Executive Briefs (decision making and action plan) will be updated for you and a bound copy will be placed before each board member for their reference during your upcoming presentation. The Chair wants you to be consistent with your previous work by clearly stating the vision and explaining the “game winning move”/disruptive innovation in your first moments of your presentation. Context is critical and you do not want your board members wondering what may have changed, if anything, since your last communication. Since your board members know you well at this point, there is no reason to introduce yourself or your past experience. Simply welcome them to the meeting and then start. The Board has a very busy agenda. Given that you have had ongoing discussion with the board and they have your final “Plan” (updated decision making and action plan) in front of them, you are to keep your “pitch” to no more than 5 minutes. In real life, after your pitch, your board members would have plenty of time for questions and answers specific to what you have shared and to what is documented in your updated Executive Briefs.” note: you can use WALMART as the Organization
