Privacy, Drug Testing, Merit, Negligence vs Intentional Homicide

See the attached file.

ONE:
Let's go off into privacy questions. Nothing is at greater risk in terms of privacy than our medical records...do you agree? Or, are your financial records more at risk, especially given events in the news lately. Which is greater in your mind (yes, you have to pick one)? Why?

TWO:
Drug testing in Sports
Drug testing in the construction industry
Drug testing for retail employees
Random drug testing for all employees

What principles can you pull about the pros and cons of drug testing from these different situations?

THREE:
Is merit a matter of definition? Who decides what it is to merit a position more than another and what are the implications?

The ambiguity and perhaps politicization of the definition of merit aside, to what extent is merit determined by opportunity? Wealth, among other things, can affect one's ability to achieve. Explain.

Why is the concept of merit itself so important in our society and why is it so much a part of the affirmative action debate?

FOUR:
What is the difference between negligence and intentional homicide?

Can negligence ever get to the point where it can be considered intentional?

Try to consider the issues of intent and due care in thinking about how one might hold a corporate official criminally liable for the death of an employee.

Both are really at risk in different ways. Financial is probably more at risk because more places can try to hack access of those records. It is harder to get medical records due to the laws in place to prevent abuse of those records. Credit reports show mostly the financial information not medical and credit reports are easier to access especially at retail stores when they give credit. They have access to being able to run the report. Normally, it shows on the report that the run was made, but by then it is too late.
