The Westing game by Ellen Raskin was full of lots of characters. A game secretly designed to pull out a sole heir for the Westing estate; it had many clues and characters. Even though a well defined mystery, there was no one single main character. Turtle Wexler, who is the daughter of grace and jack Wexler, wins the game eventually. Even though she wins the game there and the she doesn't let the others know until five years later. If turtle Wexler goes missing in the book then all the characters would be befuddled and lost about where to go. The story gets started when Sam Westing is declared dead and the game is started. Turtle's partner in the game is the dress maker Flora Baumbach who would be more worried about losing turtle. Even though turtle might appear immature with her braided hair and the bank of kicking people I the shin, she turns out to be the smartest of all. She convinced Flora that to win the game they should invest in the stock market. Description of the missing: Turtle Wexler can be described as a teenage girl with blond hair. She is quick perk and daring as was guessed from her willingness to go into the Westing house on Halloweens night. She came running out of the house when saw the dead body of Sam Westing. Her dressing sense is not very preppy as she appears to be more of a t shirt and jeans sort of person. Compared to her elder sister Angela, turtle is described as not very attractive and gorgeous. People interacted with: unlike other people of her
Colorado State University-Global (CSU-Global), located in Greenwood Village, offers students 100% online courses to complete a Bachelor’s and/or Master’s degree. Hazard or pure risks exist for this scholarly institution. Traditional risk management allows CSU-Global to assess and treat these risks. Generally, this is accomplished through insurance, specifically property-casualty, which transfers the risk of loss from the policyholder to the insurer. For this university, five loss exposures will be identified and studied using the six-step traditional risk management process.

Chris and I met with the City of Decatur Risk Manager. We asked about insurance coverage for fraud or theft perpetrated by a board member or staff member (namely in the form of writing checks). The Risk Manager said there is currently insurance coverage for Decatur Civic Center employees. The coverage includes employee theft in the amount of $500,000.00 per loss (with $5,000 deductable). However, the Board members are not covered under this same policy. The coverage for the Board is only while acting in legal capacity of Board member. The board members are not covered for fraudulent acts. In the case of a fraudulent act by a Board member, they would be personally liable and it would not be reimbursable by the insurance company.
Technology is growing and becoming more prevalent in the office today. Almost everything in the office is done on some sort of technology, and using just paper copies is becoming obsolete.

With both sides knowing what can be tracked, it can make the workplace a more productive
In 1990 over 100 stakeholders in the Greenspoint area petitioned the state to develop a 12-square-mile management district.

Risk management is a critical component to the success of any supply chain, yet this is still an area that sees little forward movement. In many organizations, risk management is viewed more as a reactive department, only becoming operational when a significant disruption arises in contrast to being an active and continual department with focused effort. As a supply chain moves to take on a global stance, risk management cannot be treated as a reactive measure. Global supply chains are exposed to greater risk than local/domestic supply chains as their linkage is more
One well accepted description of risk management is the following: risk management is a systematic approach to setting the best course of action under uncertainty by identifying, assessing, understanding, acting on and communicating risk issues. In order to apply risk management effectively, it is vital that a risk management culture be developed. The risk management culture supports the overall vision, mission and objectives of an organization. Limits and boundaries are established and communicated concerning what are acceptable risk practices and outcomes. Since risk management is directed at uncertainty related to future events and outcomes, it is
