fAll of you have probably read quite a bit about the worlds wealthiest manBill Gates. But some of you are probably not nearly as familiar with Bill Gatess main rival and worlds seventh wealthiest man, former Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. Ellison recently retired as Chief Executive officer (CEO) but is still active as the chair of Oracles board of directors. Unlike Gates, who is relatively reserved, Ellison is known for his extravagant lifestyle and boastful interviews.
The rivalry between Ellison and Gates is legendary, but not quite as much is known about Ellisons leadership style. He has been described as a jerk, and his managerial style has been described as take no prisoners. While he is unquestionably a powerful leader, he has also been criticized for spending a lot of time playing golf while leaving many leadership duties to his subordinates.
For this assignment, read up on leadership traits, leadership behaviors, and leadership styles in the required background materials. Then read up on Larry Ellison and find as much as you can about his personality and leadership style. Finally, try to apply what youve read in the required background materials about leadership traits, behaviors, and styles to what you found out about Larry Ellison.
Here are some articles to get you started on your research about Ellison:

As a bloodstain pattern analyst, you report to a homicide crime scene in a room

As a bloodstain pattern analyst, you report to a homicide crime scene in a room at Legends Hotel. The appearance of the scene makes you to suspect that the criminals have cleaned up the bloodstains from the crime scene.
On the basis of your understanding of the scenario, discuss the following:
How would you determine whether the bloodstains have actually been cleaned up or not?
What method would you use to visualize the presence of blood at a crime scene and why would you choose this method over other methods that are available? Support your opinion by discussing other methods available for bloodstain identification.
Identify the household chemicals that give false positives with the method of identification chosen by you? Discuss.
Forensic photography has also been done to reproduce the crime scene in the hotel room. This would serve as an important part of evidence collection. It can also be used to document the results of presumptive tests for bloodstains.
Based on your knowledge of photos and the results of presumptive tests, discuss the following:
How does forensic photography help in photo documenting the results of presumptive tests for blood?
Can there be any challenges of forensic photography on photo documenting the results of presumptive tests for blood? If yes, how can a crime scene technician overcome the challenges of photo documenting the results?
What steps would you carry out to photo document the results of presumptive tests for blood?
Which type of presumptive test is best for use in the field from a forensic photography point of view?
Create 2- to 3-page report in a Microsoft Word document covering both the above scenarios.
