In this case, Carter Racing has to make a decision under pressure about whether or not to race given they have experienced engine failure at a rate of 29%. Based on the opinion of the engine mechanic, temperature is a key driver in the cause of engine failure and Carter Racing has never raced in such a cold temperature (40 deg F). The data (only 7 data points) gathered by a more senior mechanic, who designed the turbo-charging system, does not demonstrate a correlation between temperature and gasket failures. There are three possible scenarios to consider. First, if they race and win, Carter Racing stands to gain a $1 million sponsorship from Goodstone and the team will feel an immense sense of pride. However, if luck allows them to win, Carter Racing also stands the chance of dismissing the engine failure issues in preparation for future races. Second, if they race and experience engine failure, Carter Racing will face their biggest blow up on national television at a major event; not to mention the loss of substantial new sponsorships from Goodstone and their existing $500k oil contract. Third, if Carter Racing chooses to withdraw, the team morale will be negatively impacted and their reputation with key sponsors may be in limbo. Withdrawal will also leave them $50k in the hole for the season. Based on the lack of additional corroborating data to disprove the temperature theory and the amount of financial incentive and reputation on the line, my recommendation is for Carter Racing to withdraw and keep their driver/car safe instead of hoping luck will be on their side. Carter Racing can use this as an opportunity to test and refine the turbo-charging system, get back on stable-footing and attract the attention of major sponsors next
Carter Racing Case Study
In this case, Carter Racing has to make a decision about whether or not to participate in a race with the knowledge that they have been experiencing a 29% engine failure rate. Carter Racing is a relatively new team, so they have not yet established a firm reputation. The mechanic thinks that temperature is the cause of failure, but that theory has been questioned by another of the racing team’s engineering staff.
If they race and win, they could receive a $1,000,000 sponsorship….
Carter Racing is in a difficult situation with respect to determining whether to enter an upcoming race at Pocono. On the one hand, in the event of a favorable performance Carter Racing stands to gain a $1 million sponsorship with Goodstone Tires that could finance Carter Racing to add another car next season. On the other hand, in the event of a poor performance Carter Racing risks losing an existing oil sponsorship worth $500,000 that is critical to next year’s race season. After careful analysis….
financial planning, I’m sure as the younger generation there is many things that they would like to buy, once they get the first job. For sure they will attract to buy the new car, new shoes which is more expensive compare the shoes that they buy during study, handbag for woman, cloths and other things that will influence them to spend. Sometimes, the fresh graduate will challenge each other in term of whom are more spend to luxury things and they will fell satisfy. I also personally think that fresh graduate….
Today, race is seen less as culture and history and more as your intelligence, wealth, morals, and how you should act. Unfortunately, racism, stereotypes, and prejudice have been around so long it's become some what subconscious of us to pair actions and personalities with a skin color. In Princess Oreo Speaks Out by Dwan Carter, people around her are shocked by how she acts and even go as far as calling her “white” or “not black enough.” Carter states, “It seems that, for a lot of….

James Baldwin once said, “I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also so much more than that. So are we all.” When the subject of race comes up, I feel like that quote is very meaningful. According to class lecture, race is an arbitrary social classification of clearly bounded categories based on skin color which corresponds to no biological reality. To be able to understand race today, a person should have a background on the history of race. According….
Race is a biological entity, but it has been proven that the concept of race can be constructed or manipulated by societies that even though since an anthropological and biological perspective the barrier between races is very clear. Ethnicity isn’t a societal concept founded by the color of skin, since everyone knows individuals of the identical race have variations of skin color. For example in European circles, Middle Easterners such as Arabs, Jews, Iranians (Indo-Europeans or Aryans); North….
After taking the quiz, it gives me a deeper impression of what race really is, and provide me a clear, new, and accurate understanding about how we are different. From the previous study I knew that human DNA can be traced back to Africa population, we have the same ancestry. But I have never further my thought to think about why there are differences among us.
The differences and variation of us such as skin color, height, and susceptibility to disease is because changes in genes….
1) The informal political structure in Chinatown used race and ethic identity for its own advantage. As stated by Kwong, "Chinatown's employers can exploit working people because they are able to ignore minimum labor standards without worrying about government enforcement."(Kwong 81) This exploitation is able to exist because it exemplifies the principles of Imperial China.
The ideology of tax collection and preventing local rebellions within the informal political structure of Imperial China….
Discrimination in my opinion does exist in the criminal justice system, especially when it comes to minorities. There are people who argue that discrimination don’t exist there is only disparity. Discrimination is when a person is judged by their race without reference to their behavior or qualifications. Disparity is when something is inequality or a difference. Being a minority my peers and I have encountered some discriminatory actions from Americans. Rather they believe it or not minorities are….
