AppleInc. Technology Company has taken a departure from its usualoperations and has now teamed up with a bio-tech company toinvestigate the possibility of having successful cloning of humanorgans both children and adults. The company’s decision to intothis venture has been driven by the urge to use technology for thewelfare of the people. Apple has come out to dispel the negativeperceptions that people have had for a long time concerning theconcept of cloning. Studies have shown that there cloning in humanshas a high failure rate as high as 97% (Perl, 2013). Apple seeks toincrease the chances of success of cloning through the exploitationof its technology in partnership with bio-tech companies.

Astudy is to be conducted on how to increase the possibilitiessuccessfully cloning human organs for all patients including thosewith terminal diseases. Using the technological milestones that Applehas made, it intends to introduce remarkable paradigms in thepractice of medicine to safe human lives. Apple Company iscollaborating with a bio-tech company to find a way of creating stemcells with a DNA that match with the DNA of a patient to be treated.This is expected to be a great achievement in the field of medicinefor years to come (Perl, 2013).

Applehas a record of conforming well to the ever-changing customer needs.This company is, therefore, able to make a breakthrough in thecloning business. In a bid to find a lasting solution in the healthsector, the company envisions to remain relevant in the market andovercoming the ever-growing competition.

Facebook`sStance on Consumer Privacy in the Digital Age

Itis common practice for any business to have well spelt out strategieson how to operate their enterprises with an aim of making profits.However, it is important to for a business to recognize andappreciate all stakeholders that make up a business enterpriseespecially the customers. Businesses are consumer driven. Anybusiness requires its customers to survive longer in the market(Lawrence, 2011). Some businesses are very critical to operate, andas such they require privacy and protection to their customers. Thispost narrows down to look at Facebook and its stance on theprotection of its customers (Facebook users) in this era of digitaltechnology.

Facebookhas an estimated customer base of about 350 million people. These arepeople who share confidential and private data that should be let outto the general public. With such a wide customer base, the usersshould be well protected and their information held inconfidentiality. Facebook is, therefore, tasked with the duty andresponsibility of protecting its users and guarantee them the privacythat they need. Privacy is a critical factor for all Facebook usersin this digital age. If the people are not assured of the privacy ofthe data that they share on Facebook, then they are likely to losetrust and may opt to move out. Lack of trust will ultimately ruin thelucrative business that Facebook gets from its customers (Lawrence,2011).

Consumer privacy in the digital ageis a significant element to be considered by all online businessowners. Chris Herring in his blog, Privacyin the Digital Age,argues the fact that a site has privacy policies is enough to makethem subscribe. This shows that privacy policies in the digital ageare the most important element that consumers would like to have(Lawrence, 2011). Facebook values its customers and any complaintsraised by the customers are taken very seriously especially when ittouches on the privacy of the users. Facebook is on the forefront inthe protection of the consumer privacy rights. However, these rightscan be recalled if users are found to act in an unacceptable manner.Those who are reported to have taken advantage of their rights incontempt of others are suspended or discontinued from using Facebook.This way, Facebook can continuously respond to the demands of itsconsumers and expand their customer base.References

There are various federalrules of evidence that can be applied in any court, but States courtshave added some. This assignment discusses few general rules ofevidence and how they are applied.

Thirdly,Rule 401 the procedure to the proof relevance of evidence. Forevidence to be used in a law case, the court must establish that theeffect of omission or use of the evidence. Our state courts alwaysdetermine the materiality of the evidence before it is accepted asevidence. It will determine whether the fact in the court would beaffected by the inclusion or omission of the evidence

Fourth,Rule 402 is used to determine which relevant evidence will be allowedto be used. For example, the court allows the evidence to be used ifit’s not contradictory to the speculation of United StateConstitution, Rules prescribed by Supreme Court, Federal Rules ofEvidence and Federal Statutes. If it violates provisions of the aboveelements, the evidence is not admissible.

Also,another general used evidence law is rule 601 competency to testify. Before any testimony is accepted to be used in court proceedings,the person bearing the testimony must be competent under theprovisions of a federal rule of evidence to testify. Our state courtallows everyone to testify according to the provision of SupremeCourt and Federal rules unless in individual cases were the state lawdecides the competency of witness’s claim or defense where thestate provides the rule of decision.

Finally,Rule901, Authenticating evidence. Before evidence is used it must beproved to be what it is. The state court allows those are producingevidence in court to identify sufficiently the item of evidence andsupport that it is what the proponent claims to be.
