Market research is essential in gathering information about the growing or decreasing trends with consumers. Market research is not only viable for consumers, but marketers representing major companies such that deal with household goods, food, cars, and in this case sports. Market research is conducted in several ways including standard phone surveys, mail surveys, focus groups, personal interviews, through observations, and online surveys. For this particular case the online survey conducted by the Harris Interactive group in New York, focused on the popularity of sports within the male population, including past favorites that have declined since the 1980’s using categories such as income, education, age, and race as determinant factors in sports favorability.

Behavior Analysis

Case of Emily

Recap the Case

            Emily is a 6-year old girl who was referred by her pediatric psychologist.  When she reached her first grade year she started having behavioral issues.  She began to express her dislike for school and resisted going.  What started as being reluctant turned into screaming tantrums when being faced with attending school.  Emily also refused to sleep alone and wanted to sleep with her parents.  Her parents tried to move her to her own bed when she fell asleep and often she would wake up screaming, waking up her whole family.  Tired of the battle, the parents let her sleep with them and even tried keeping her home from school while they were trying to figure out her issues.  Emily behaves well at school and is up to her academic grade level.


Judo in Action Case

This case study was interesting for a number of reasons. I learned that many organizations often compete with other similar companies in the public forum, but that they often wage a war within themselves in an effort to “one up” their competitors. Unfortunately, these circumstances often backfire when companies do not succeed but rather fail with these efforts. In addition, a competitive advantage is not solely based upon achieving the greatest level of market share. Rather, it is also dependent upon factors such as exposure, product quality, customer preferences, and product visibility. Under these conditions, organizations may find themselves with a huge success on their hands or a critical failure. Organizations must find a unique balance to remain a step ahead of the competition and to achieve optimal innovation and exclusivity in challenging markets.


Case McNeely

  • State the issue of law the Missouri (MSCt) confronted in McNeely.

The rule of law confronted was the blood test complains. The defendant did not consent to the test while officer did not seek warrant. The officer showed no concern about any delay which jeopardized evidence.

  • State the rule of law the Missouri announced in McNeely.

Defendant was granted an opportunity to suppress the test results; judgment was affirmed.

  • Propose alternatives of rule of law for resolving a case?

Court cases normally follow procedure hence consume a lot of time. Alternative way is to apply reconciliation rule whereby defendant and offender are given the chance to agree to solve their issues

  • What fourth amendment does Missouri court seek to balance?

Fourth amendment analysis calls for the balancing of two competing interests: the right of individual to secure in his or her person house, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizure. The second is the interest of society in knowing and getting rid of criminal activities.

Schmerber v.California

  • Advance an argument on behalf of Schmerber as to why the extraction of a blood sample from his body compelled him to be a witness against himself, and so violated his Fifth Amendment rights.

Warrant fewer intrusions of the body should not be taken lightly; it should be viewed basing on facts and circumstances of each case. Officers should believe that they were faced with emergency where delay of obtaining warrant would jeopardize evidence. Special facts should therefore be considered. Neutral and detached judge should be the one taking inference to support blood draw.

  • Outline Brennan’s rationale for rejecting this argument.

Brennan rejected Schmerber argument since it is viewed as application of the extent circumstance exception to the warrant requirement.

  • Outline Justice Black’s rationale for upholding the argument

Justice Black upholds the argument since other jurisdiction that had addressed Schmerber had held that “special facts” beyond the natural use of blood alcohol were required.

  • What is the fourth Amendment issue Brennan addresses in Schmerber?

The fourth amendment addressed by Brennan is the non-consensual, warrant less blood fact situation.

  • State Schmerber rule of law concerning searches and seizures?

Schmerber rule of law concerning searches and seizures focus on, need of warrant when the issue is whether to invade the person’s body or not in search of proof (guilty or not guilty).

  • In addition to joining Black’s dissent, Justice Douglas enters a dissent of his own in Schmerber. Outline the rationale of Douglas solo Schmerber dissent.

Douglas thought that compulsory extraction of petitioner’s blood for analysis was meant to act as testimonial and communication approaches which could aid in giving evidence that could help judge offenders.
