Marcia Norman, 39, and her husband, Mitchell, had been married for 25 years and had several children. Mitchell did not work. He forced Marcia to make money by prostitution, and he made fun of that fact before family and friends. He beat her if she resisted going to a truck stop and offering her body. On a few occasions, he made her eat out of the pets’ bowls and insisted that she bark like a dog. He threatened to kill or maim her numerous times.

Marcia and Mitchell got along very well when he was sober. But early one morning, he was intoxicated when he went to a highway rest area where Marcia was prostituting herself and assaulted her. He continued beating her all day after they got home. She called the police and was told to come in and file a complaint, but she was afraid that he would kill her if she had him arrested. She ingested a bottle of pills, then panicked and called EMS. Her husband cursed her as the paramedics treated her and urged them to let her die. After they left, Mitchell continued to slap, kick and throw objects at Marcia. At one point, he put a cigarette out on her upper torso, causing a small burn. After he fell asleep, Marcia took their baby to her mother’s so that she would not wake him, returned with a pistol and killed him.
At trial, Marcia pleads self defense, which is defined as “the necessity, real or reasonably apparent, of killing an unlawful aggressor to save oneself from imminent death or great bodily harm.” The state does not have a battered-person syndrome statute. (Source: North Carolina v. Norman, 378 SE2d 8 [Supreme Court of North Carolina 1989])
In a paper of approximately 2,400 words, make alternate arguments that 1) Marcia Norman is not guilty of the murder of her husband; 2) Marcia Norman is guilty of the murder of her husband. Use the paper to show what you have learned about intimate-partner abuse and the pros and cons of battered-spouse syndrome.
You do not need to look at the case or research the law of North Carolina or any other state. Use the information from the assigned text. You may supplement the paper with independent sources, but this should not be necessary. Papers based on internet sources alone will not receive credit. You should be demonstrating that you have read and understood the material assigned.

Bianchi designs, develops and produces solutions for cycling fans of all ages and has Roadbikes, Mountain bikes (MTB), City Trekking bikes and a �Junior� range for kids.
Unfortunately the Italian economy is suffering a deep recession and this has negatively affected business, with sales in decline. The Management Team of Bianchi wants to look at pushing sales and business in other markets. They have heard that the UK might be a good market to go into. A part of the The Tour de France, the famous international cycling race was held in the UK in 2014 and Mr. Bianchi noted that lots of people turned along the route to watch it.
The Bianchi team are not sure what the competitive business environment is like currently in the UK for the bicycle business.
You are working for an international management consultancy firm based in London. You are sent on a project to Bianchi to help the management team to make this decision. You decide that a good way to analyse the situation is to prepare a PEST analysis about the UK market.
The managers in Bianchi don�t know what a PEST analysis is! You will have to explain it to them first …as well as present your findings and make recommendations to them as to what strategies they might put in place to be competitive if they do then decide to go into the UK market. You prepare a plan for your report for Bianchi in separate sections as follows:
Section 1 (15 marks)
(This part of the task is about knowledge � show what you know about PEST)
– Explain what the external environment is and why it is important for all businesses to analyse the external environment regularly.
– Explain what is a �PEST� analysis is and why it might be a useful tool to for Bianchi to use to analyse the external environment not just regading this decision but as a regular reporting activity in the company.
– Explain what the 4 dimensions are in the P-E-S_T analysis and explain what kinds of things are examines in each dimension and give some examples of how a change in some of these things mighty affect a business.
Section 2 (25 marks)
(This part of the task requires application ability � show you can apply it!)
– Report findings of PEST analysis of UK market for Bicycle Business.
(Set out in a clear format � with a clear section for each P-E-S-T dimension and a sub-paragraph for each factor you find in that area that might be relevant for this business analysis.)
– Explain how the information found in the PEST analysis could impact positively or negatively Bianchi�s business opportunities in the UK.
Section 3 (10 marks)
– In conclusion, looking at findings from the PEST analysis make a recommendation as to whether this might be a good time for Bianchi to push more business in the UK. Make any other suggestions as to what strategies Bianchi might implement in response to factors in the external environment in order to be competitive in the UK market.
Your Task!
Write up your report as defined in the plan above!
