Questions 48-50

Buying or selling real estate / state / status / stature / statue ( statue / figure / figurine ) with the aid of agencies has been around for years and is becoming popular here in this country. Customers/ customer / costume / costumes /  pay the consulting / consult / consultant / console / consolation / council / counsel / councilor  fee only one time and can get professional information about real estates deals. Such service can save consumers a lot of time, but if customers contact illegal agencies, which have no license or are not members of a city or county association, they will very likely have to deal with problems such as the same house being sold to more than one buyer, fraud and fake contracts. When these problems happen, exploited customers have no protection at all.

To provide a legal, safe and well-protected environment for customers, the president of the Association of Real Estate Brokers / agency / dealer and a lot of legislators have worked very hard to establish the real estate brokers regulation law, which was passed in 2000 and put into practice at the end of 2003 to regulate all the agencies.

This law was established not only to develop a license system for real estate agents, but also to generate guarantee deposits and special permission regulations. With this law, customers can have a professional and well-protected environment in the real estate business. Besides, real estate agents' licenses are given to those agents who have undergone specific training. Once they are trained, they will be capable of helping customers find their ideal real estate, offering them information about the real estate, the environment, market analysis, taxes, and even long-termed planning.

Questions 186-190

 

Dear Sir or Madam:

Recently 1 purchased a DVD player from Clinton Appliances in Kaohsiung City. Upon setting up my new DVD player at home, I found that it only played DVDs that I purchased from Clinton Appliances and none of the DVDs I owned prior to purchase of this DVD player, nor any of the DVDs that I rented from my local DVD/VCD rental store. I attempted to return or exchange my DVD player five days later at Clinton Appliances (I had my sales receipt/ recipe , supporting documents / warranty , the original box, etc.) and was told by the manager I could not refund or exchange my DVD player even though I've only owned it for five days, had all my supporting documents and it didn't work.

I am asking for your help in getting a refund for my DVD player and would also like to file a complaint against Clinton 'Appliances with you and any government agencies that would help alert other unsuspecting customers of Clinton Appliances' unethical and devious business practices.

The Medical Minute: Reducing the risk of stroke (sudden stoppage of blood flow to the brain)

 

Patients who have a family history of stroke, who have medical risk factors for atherosclerotic / arthritis / atheroma  disease, who have had a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or a previous stroke are at increased risk of suffering a stroke. However, there are ways to considerably reduce the likelihood of this potentially devastating occurrence. According to the latest edition of The Medical Minute, a service of the Penn / Pennsylvania State Hershey Medical Center, these include the control of risk factors, surgical treatment of atherosclerotic disease, anti thrombotic血栓形成, 栓塞 treatments for cardiac embolism (clots) and the use of anti platelet agents for non-cardiac embolic stroke.

9. Kant’s Criticisms of Utilitarianism

Kant’s criticisms of utilitarianism have become famous enough to warrant some separate discussion. Utilitarian moral theories evaluate the moral worth of action on the basis of happiness that is produced by an action. Whatever produces the most happiness in the most people is the moral course of action. Kant has an insightful objection to moral evaluations of this sort. The essence of the objection is that utilitarian theories actually devalue the individuals it is supposed to benefit. If we allow utilitarian calculations to motivate our actions, we are allowing the valuation of one person’s welfare and interests in terms of what good they can be used for. It would be possible, for instance, to justify sacrificing one individual for the benefits of others if the utilitarian calculations promise more benefit. Doing so would be the worst example of treating someone utterly as a means and not as an end in themselves.

Another way to consider his objection is to note that utilitarian theories are driven by the merely contingent inclination in humans for pleasure and happiness, not by the universal moral law dictated by reason. To act in pursuit of happiness is arbitrary and subjective, and is no more moral than acting on the basis of greed, or selfishness. All three emanate from subjective, non-rational grounds. The danger of utilitarianism lies in its embracing of baser instincts, while rejecting the indispensable role of reason and freedom in our actions.
