Take Home Exam Ethics BUS140 Summer 2015 Professors: Drasco & Kart Page 1 of 8 Merit Ptah , your mother’s oldest sister and now your boss, has been operating Journey House (JH) for over 30 years. In 1983, after her divorce from her first and only husband, Merit needed income. Living in Denver, Colorado, she took a leap of faith, purchased a rundown, single family residence, fixed it up and began renting rooms to the relatively healthy, elderly townsfolk that needed very little medical attention but who did need the convenience and security of regular oversight and living assistance. As her business succeeded, she began purchasing, within the same city block, one house after another. On July 1 st , she acquired the last house within the block. Now, JH ’s rectangular footprint is composed of nearly 300 residential homes. JH’s site is essentially a large gated rectangular compound. On each side of the compound runs a quiet city street. The North half of JH’s acreage is dedicated to proactively caring for tenants with complex medical needs. The South half provides for tenants that are well and otherwise ambulatory. Somewhere in the middle are business and medical offices, a centralized post office, pharmacy, recreation rooms, a small gym and stationary pools called the aquatic treadmills. A couple of years ago, Merit added a physical therapy center with full-time staff. There’s a massive kitchen with chefs onsite 24-7, providing meals and snacks throughout the complex. There’s also a park -like area for picnics and outdoor dining. D uring the summer evenings, there’s always scheduled live music and light entertainment from about 6pm until 9:30pm.

Each of the six local high schools present their top musicians from its entering senior class to compete for $10,000 in prizes (provided by JH). The judges are local professional musicians and the best student performer of the night is awarded a $5,000 educational scholarship. The winners will be paid their winnings upon graduation from high school, about May 2016. JH opens its “common” facilities for select community events. For example, for the mere cost of food and services, the Denver Rotary Club has its weekly, Wednesday meetings in the central dining room. JH contributes heavily to the local charities and churches. The nearby Baptist Church could not obtain bank financing to remodel its church and outbuildings. JH became the lender, providing a 30 year mortgage at 2%. Because of one of JH’s large donations to the City of Denver, the police department was able to expand its K9 unit, purchasing and training four new police dogs. The dogs are named after the four Ptah sisters Merit, Michelle, Mindy and Megan.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
