Question 3019 Informative Presentation Outline

Informative Presentation Outline

As we have learned, the overall purposes of the informative presentation can be to describe, demonstrate, or explain something to your audience. For this assignment, you will choose a topic that interests you and decide which of the three forms of informative speaking you would like to fulfill in presenting to your audience. You must be able to includes references to credible outside sources, (at least one for each main point of your presentation) so be sure to select a speech topic that has scholarly sources written about it. The natural tendency is for us to want to show how to do something as opposed to telling the audience. For this presentation, however, we will not be using visual aids. Therefore, it is very important that you use effective language in the delivery of your presentation as we learned in Week 1. This will help you to learn to be vivid in your delivery of a presentation without the use of presentation aids. A great presentation is well organized and easy for the listener to understand. Your audience has only one opportunity to understand the message conveyed in your presentation. This assignment requires that you create a formal outline. A formal outline is detailed and written in complete sentences instead of using a keyword or sentence fragment for each point.

Creating a formal outline will assist you both in developing your ideas and in following the organizational patterns that you have learned in this week’s readings and discussion forum about delivering presentations. A great presentation is well organized and easy for the listener to understand. Your audience has only one opportunity to understand the message conveyed in your presentation. It is important to have a clearly established audience for your presentation and to consistently adapt the content of your presentation for that audience.

For examples of acceptable and unacceptable ways of developing your formal outline, please review the Sample Outlines document.

Create your formal outline using the Informative Presentation Outline Template. The template includes all of the elements that are required for the outline.

Question 3024 Characteristics Of Interpersonal Communication

INTRODUCTION

Week 1: Characteristics and Utility of Interpersonal Communication

Constantly talking isn’t necessarily communicating.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

All interpersonal communication begins with a need to convey a message to another person. Until very recently, this has primarily meant speaking face-to-face, handwriting a letter, or calling by phone. Now, technologies such as e-mail, text messaging, instant messaging, social media, and video chat applications offer even more popular interpersonal communication options. Today, there are a myriad of ways to communicate, but no matter which you choose, you are still faced with the responsibility to communicate well so that others may understand you.

In order to be a clear communicator, you must first understand how interpersonal communication is structured and what elements influence effective communication. This week, you will focus on some of the basic theories, principles, and models of communication. You will consider guidelines for being a more effective interpersonal communicator.

Through the Discussion and the Assignments, you will apply learning and insights to your own interpersonal relationships—a reflective first step to developing new communication skills. You will also be introduced to your Final Project. Work on this assignment begins in Week 1. It is therefore recommended that you carefully review the Final Project guidelines early in this week.

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Explain the importance of the principles of interpersonal communication
  • Define interpersonal communication
  • Apply basic models of interpersonal communication to your own life

Question 3028 Inductive and Deductive Reasoning

Attachment preview

Instructions: In class we discussed the logic behind inductive and deductive reasoning, as well as specific examples of each of these types of reasoning. For this activity, you will watch a short scene from the movie Sherlock Holmes (2009) in which Sherlock Holmes uses reasoning to reach conclusions about his friend Dr. Watson’s new fiancé, Mary Morstan. You will then decompose the premises and conclusions of arguments within this scene. Refer to class notes from Units 10 (Logical Reasoning) as well as the Facione and Gittens (2013) readings from each of these units to help you complete this activity.

(1) Watch the scene from Sherlock Holmes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=388-rOzD9SM) and address each of the following:
a. Choose two arguments from the scene.
b. Identify whether each argument is inductive or deductive.
c. Construct the argument using the following format:
Premise #1: _______________________
Premise #2: _______________________
Conclusion: _______________________

Hint: if an argument you chose is deductive, also make sure to follow the appropriate language template (e.g., denying the consequent, applying a generalization, etc.).

A paper about handling a crisis on media so focus on a single event/crisis and see how a company/corporation or a government has handled the crisis on media.

(Six to seven pages- double space & font size 12)

bibliography not counted in total words)

The purpose of this assignment is to deepen your understanding of academic research design and process. For this assignment, you have to conduct a literature review on the topic that you have selected (and approved by me), choose the appropriate research methods and present your data gathering plan. Your research proposal should be five to seven pages–double-spaced pages with standard margins, a “Works Cited” (MLA) or “References” (APA) page(s).The “Works Cited” (MLA style) or “References” (APA style) is essentially keyed to your actual citations in your text (If you need help with references and in-text citation, you may consult the Library website or a librarian).

In order to keep your paper to only five to seven pages, try to think that you should think of your topic as a question to be answered. When writing your paper, keep in mind these four parts:

  • Introduction – including the purpose and importance of the study
  • Literature Review –a survey of the theory and research related to the problem
  • Methodology
  • Data Collection Plan

A passing paper must address all these four parts and cite at least 6 relevant sources. Not encyclopedias or dictionaries or Wikipedia should be used.

In the Torey Lampart case, how do you assess the responsibility for the unfortunate conflict that has arisen? Is there any possible solution to have her stay, or at least a reconciliation? If so, how should this now be conducted?

Question 3032 13th Documentary

Watch the documentary 13th (2016). Documentary available on Netflix and write a 750-1000 word essay on what you learned from the documentary and how it relates to the topics of our class. Going over 1000 word limit is ok.

Writing Your Essay

The essay should reflect careful thought, writing, and attention to form. The essay is a form of expository prose, a kind of writing in which you argue several points. Once you selected your documentary, watch it several times, noting the thesis and the subpoints in the reading. You can also note aspects of style that affect the strengths and weaknesses in the article, and how well the article develops its main ideas and subpoints. If you are not familiar with the topic/issue discussed in the documentary, you will need to do additional research to learn about the event/topic/issue covered in the news article.

Work on this essay similarly to how you completed your first assignment. Begin with an outline, write a draft, then refine your essay.

Additional Research Required

To support your analysis, you must cite at least 2 scholarly sources. These have to be in addition to sources you read as part of the course. So citing course readings is strongly suggested but will not count towards the 2 source requirement.

Question 3034 Data Analytics Application Articles

ANALYTICS APPLICATIONS:

Nate Silver is one of the most prominent current practitioners of analytics. He came to national attention for his political modeling during the 2012 presidential election, when he correctly predicted the outcome in all fifty states. (He didn’t do quite so well in 2016, but at least was giving Donald Trump one chance in three of winning the election when virtually every other analyst was pretty much writing off his chances.) Before he became famous for his political analyses he was well-known in sabermetric (i.e., baseball statistics) circles for his development of the PECOTA system of analyzing player performance.

His website, fivethirtyeight.com (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.(named for the total number of electoral votes) contains a large and regularly updated collection of analytics-related articles on a variety of topics. While it is most famous for, and best at, political and sports analysis, there are also articles on a variety of other topics, ranging from science to the Oscar race. Some of them, admittedly, are fluff. (One of the curses of running a major internet presence is that you have to post stuff even when there isn’t stuff worth posting.) But many articles involve some serious analytic work, involving on real data crunching and giving good insight.

Your task on this assignment is to identify TWO good articles on that site. A “good” article in this context means one involving some actual data analysis, not merely some opinionating. For each article, read the article and provide a brief (one or two paragraph) summary. Be sure to include the title of the article and a full citation for each article.

Due Sunday, November 4, 2018. Your work should be 12-point font and double spaced. Your citations should be on a separate page at the end of your assignment. Citations are in APA format.

Question 3057 Relationships And Perceptions Between Self & Others

INTRODUCTION: Week 2: Relationships and Perceptions Between Self and Others

What you see and hear depends a good deal on where you are standing; it also depends on what sort of person you are.

—C.S. Lewis, The Magician’s Nephew

As you begin to work on Week 2 of this course, ask yourself this question: “Who am I right now?” You may be “the student” who is preparing to focus on coursework, “the parent” who has to leave the computer soon to tuck a child into bed, or any number of other “selves” that flow in and out of your daily situations. How do these “selves” change depending on the people around you? What are the changes in how you represent yourself when you talk with your coworkers compared to when you talk with your friends?

This week’s content moves from the interpersonal communication foundation introduced in Week 1 to looking at how your relationships and perceptions of yourself and of others impact how you apply interpersonal communication skills. In this week, you will consider your self-concept and how you present different “faces” in different contexts, and how these faces play in your relationships and communication with others.

You will also consider how one’s own perceptions develop and how that ties into identity formation, relationships, and communication with others. By the end of this week, you may have a new appreciation for the complexity inherent to your relationships and perceptions of others!

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • Explain how communication shapes the self
  • Identify how particular others and the generalized other shape our identity
  • Explain the three-step process of perception
  • Appraise problematic stereotypes
  • Explain factors that affect individuals’ perceptions
  • Analyze methods for improving perception and communication

Question 3058 Waikiki Beach Visual Memories Tourists’ Emotional Experiences

Pick a place in Hawaii vacation with photo with lots of color it will be call the girls weekend 400 words

Find one of your favorite photographs. Describe or upload the photo in your initial post. Discuss the emotional response you have when you look at your photo. How do your memories and experiences affect your perception of the image? Would it affect others viewers in the same way? Why is this important to consider when using images to communicate?

*Remember— Analysis requires that you substantiate your ideas with quotes from academic sources and experts in the field. Analysis without substantiated evidence is opinion. Use your etextbook, another academic article or source, or a career or real-life example to support your analysis points in your initial discussion post to demonstrate your full comprehension of the topics.

Question 3059 Cultural Approach Individual Communication Theory

Cultural Approach to Organizations
The Cultural Approach contends that people are like animals who are suspended in webs that they created. Theorists in this tradition argue that an organization’s culture is composed of shared symbols, each of which has a unique meaning. Organizational stories, rituals, and rites of passage are examples of what constitutes the culture of an organization.

The presentation should illustrate and explain a specific interpersonal, group or organizational communication theory or set of theories as one might experience in the workplace. (Alternate scenarios may be permissible. Consult your instructor.) You are to dramatize,illustrate and/or explain your theories through an informative, original PowerPoint or other multimedia presentation format such as Animoto, PowToon, or Prezi. The presentation should be designed to help your classmates understand interpersonal communication principles, so it can entertain while it explains. This project is meant to be a fun way for you to demonstrate your understanding of the general principles we’ve been examining, both in the presentations you produce and in the way you interact in a small group or individually with your class.

Presentations will be evaluated for substance and creativity.

Question 3061 A Tale of Two Routes

Activity 14: A Tale of Two Routes

Instructions: In class we discussed one of the major theories ofpersuasion, the Elaboration Likelihood Model (ELM). For this activity, you will apply your knowledge of the two routes of processing proposed by the ELM (i.e., the central and peripheral routes) to identifying the extent to which components of a sales pitch on the popular show Shark Tank encourage each of these routes. Refer to class notes from Unit 13 (Persuasion and Public Communication) as well as the Booth-Butterfield (n.d.) and O’Keefe (2012) readings from Unit 13 to help you complete this activity.

Choose any sales pitch from Shark Tankduring whichentrepreneursask the Sharks to invest in their product. You may choose any sales pitch that is available to you on Youtube. Then, respond to the following:

(1) Identify 3message factorsfrom this clip that encouraged central route processing about investing in the product and describe why they are relevant to the message argument of investing in the product.

(2) Identify 3message factors from this clipthat encouraged peripheral route processing about investing in the product and describe why each is a heuristic cue rather than a message that supports the message argument of investing in the product.

(3) Are the Sharks more likely to process centrally or peripherally? Why? Make sure to discuss this in terms of your motivation and your ability to process the message.

(4) When YOU watched this video, did you use central or peripheral route thinking? Why? Make sure to discuss this in terms of your motivation and your ability to process the message.

Write a two page response, 650 words count to one of the following two questions. In your response, use *at least* one direct quotation from either Aristotle or Plato to support your answer. Write in 12-point font, Times New Roman, double-spaced, with one-inch margins. Submit in ONLY .doc, .docx, or .pdf formats.

Aristotle file is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1K0ujI9L4sTv93ILPe…

Plato file attached in file.

Choose ONE prompt here:

Either

1) Would Aristotle think that Mr. Smith is a good citizen? That is, does Mr. Smith display the kind of political virtues Aristotle thinks are important and necessary for a well-functioning political community? If so, describe at least two ways Mr. Smith is a good representation of Aristotle’s ideal citizen. If not, describe at least two reasons why Mr. Smith would fall short in Aristotle’s estimation.

*OR*

2) The political message of Divergent clearly opposes the kind of rigid social hierarchies and class system Tris defies. However, Plato endorses a political system built on similarly rigid social hierarchies as the most-just kind of political order. Does the system on display in the film embody his vision of the ideal-city ruled by the Wise? If so, describe how this system ensures “Justice” as Plato understands it. If not, explain how the political system described in the film does not ensure “Justice” as Plato understands it.

Choose ONLY ONE prompt:

1) Katniss exists in a state that seems to bear many similarities to absolutist regime, or Leviathan, Thomas Hobbes believes is the best system of government because it ensures peace. However, Katniss and many of the other Tributes rebel and seek to create a new system of government. Based on your reading of both Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, is Katniss’s revolution justified? That is, would Hobbes and/or Locke endorse the revolution she ends up leading as the “Mockingjay”? Why or Why not? In your answer, cite at least one direct quotation from both Locke and Hobbes.

*OR*

2) Rousseau’s political theory has frequently been accused of justifying violent repression of dissidents or those who oppose political regimes in the name of the “General Will” and “The People.” Based on your viewing of the film Danton, do you believe these criticisms are justified? In other words, are the actions of Robespierre against Danton a correct interpretation of Rousseau’s ideas, or do they represent a corrupted or perverse understanding of Rousseau’s work? In your answer, include at least two direct quotations from Rousseau.

Question 3092 Policy Making Ability of the President

Checks and Constraints of the Presidency

You have studied how the legislative and judicial branches of government have a wide variety of checks that they can utilize to constrain the power of the president.

However, the framers of the U.S. Constitution also invested within the presidency a wide arsenal of tools. These tools allow the executive branch to effectively block the policymaking powers of other branches of government. As the Learning Resources indicate, even the threat of a veto from the White House is often enough to greatly influence discussions, compromises, and working sessions regarding legislation for one simple reason: It is extremely difficult for the Congress to muster a two-thirds majority to override a presidential veto. Therefore, the very threat of such a veto is often enough to motivate lawmakers to change course or to integrate important considerations of the president.

While there are many checks and balances between the different branches of the federal government, the extent to which they are used depends upon the individuals who occupy offices in Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Oval Office.

Consider how the powers and constraints of the executive branch may influence the policymaking ability of the president. Think about how the powers of the presidency might serve as a check on the policymaking activities of the legislative and judicial branches of government.

The Executive Branch, best exemplified in the person of the president, saw its power grow considerably in the 20th century. Consider the scope of those powers and the degree to which the other two branches of government have constrained the reach of the Executive Branch in recent years.

Select one constraint and one power of the executive branch (presidency). Then analyze the impact of each on the policymaking powers of the legislative and judicial branches.

The Assignment 1-1.5 pages must include:

  • an explanation of one constraint on the policymaking powers of the presidency.
  • Then explain one power that allows the executive branch to serve as a check on the policymaking powers of the legislative and judicial branches.
  • Provide and analyze an example of a recent policy decision (The “Muslim Ban” is a good example) that illustrates either a constraint on the power of the executive branch or a check on the powers of the other branches.

Question 3093 Ideas and American Foreign Policy

Prompt

Thus far in our class we have read and discussed a wide variety of arguments for specific foreign policies beginning with the early Republic though the start of the Second World War. Doing so has allowed us to see how certain ideas, arguments, and themes have changed in response to new threats and opportunities. Although all of these arguments were made prior to the advent of modern game theory, they all nevertheless employ implicit or explicit strategic logic. Indeed, given our readings in the intellectual development of US foreign policy, it is clear that the earliest statesman of the United States understood the role of strategy and advocated for policies which they believed were in the best interests of America’s strategic place in the world.

In this essay, you are to select 4 selections from previous readings and analyze their strategic logic. You can choose any selections that we have read thus from Ideas and American Foreign Policy. Possible questions to consider include (but are not limited to):

  1. Do the early policy-makers advocate for positions which make strategic sense? Why or why not?
  2. Are there lessons from the early history of American foreign policy which can be applied today?
  3. Why do several others seem to point to the same principle but reach different conclusions? Is it because some misunderstood or were misrepresenting the principle, or because the application of the principle changed according to different fact-patterns in the changing landscape of international politics?
  4. Is America safer with a foreign policy of engagement with the world or with a turning away toward insular concerns?

Guidelines

Your paper should follow the standard 5 paragraph essay, with one paragraph for an introduction, one for a conclusion and three well-written paragraphs which defend or otherwise advance your thesis. If necessary, you may include an additional 2 paragraphs for a total of 7 paragraphs. Your paper should therefore be about 1000-1400 words.

Your paper must have a clearly defended thesis. You must also rely only on the texts to justify your position. Outside citations are not permitted: this is not a research paper but a sustained reflection on the course to this point.

You be graded on the quality of your thesis, evidence, logic, formatting, and spelling/grammar.

The best papers will, in addition to a clearly articulated and defended thesis, format their papers in line with the Chicago Manual of Style. Papers should use 1″ margins on all sides, use 12pt Times New Roman Font, and double spaced text. Include a formatted title page. For additional information on these guidelines, see the formatting handout given in class. (If you were not in class, you should consult Kate Turabian, A Manual for Writers, Eighth Edition[Chicago Press].).

Based on the relevant lectures and assigned reading for Week 11, take a clear position on your chosen question. No “fence-sitting.” Provide as much support for your position and claims as possible. This also means explaining how the evidence you present supports your claim. Evidence/support rarely, if ever, “speaks for itself.” Make sure that all references to the assigned reading include page numbers [e.g., (Losurdo, pg. 15).] and all references to the lecture are cited by the week of the lecture and the title of the slide being referenced [e.g., (Lecture, Week 1, “What is Liberalism?”).]. Citations should be placed at the end of the relevant sentence(s), prior to the final punctuation. If you include mentions of current events, news stories, or historical events, please provide proper citations for those as well. Please use in-text/parenthetical citations, not footnotes or endnotes, for all citations. Remember, you need to include citations for all references to words AND ideas that are not your own, regardless of whether you are quoting directly or not. Please email me if you have a specific question about the reference/citation requirements. Any post that does not include any properly cited references will not receive credit. Posts that have some properly cited references but are missing other citations where they are necessary, will receive partial credit.

Question 3120 Rights and Responsibilities of Citizens

Prompt: In this unit we learn about the history of our democracy and the rights and responsibilities of citizens. On November 6th, 2018 we had a midterm election that choose U.S. senators and representatives as well as a number of state and local officials from governors on down to local justices of the peace. Midterm elections have historically low voter turnout (only about 40% of those eligible actually vote – and even less in Texas!). Consider what you’ve read in the chapters and comment on the following:

  1. What is necessary for a democracy to thrive? Can it still exist without the things you mentioned?
  2. Why are so few Americans inclined to participate in the process that determines so much about their lives?
  3. Do Americans even want a democracy? Is there a better alternative?
  4. What question do you have for the class?

Question 3125 Mass Media Bias And American Politics Political Searches In Social Media

Lesson Three Writing Assignment:

It has long been argued, particularly by conservatives, that there is a liberal bias in the mass media.

With these two points of view in mind, please respond to the following question.

Assignment:

(1) How is the media, biased, more towards progressive-liberal values, conservative values or in both directions depending on the specific media outlets you may access? Explain your response.

(2) Find two or more examples of media bias (video clip, article, images) and attach to your Dropbox submission. Explain in detail how these example/s represent media bias and the impact that it has on public opinion. As part of your research and examination of media bias include recent polling data results showing the public’s confidence in the objectivity or fairness of the media. Provide an Internet citation for each polling source discussed.

Writing Guidelines:

  • 4-5 double-spaced pages of text
  • Write in complete sentences and paragraphs. Bullet points or lists will not be accepted.

Question 3126 Robert Josephs Texas Candidate for US Senate

Objective: The objective of this assignment is for students to think critically about effective political campaigns in Texas and understand both the personal and social responsibility inherent in representative democracy.

Attachment previewDescription of Assignment: You have been hired to be the campaign manager for a candidate to represent Texas in the United States Senate. As campaign manager, you need to develop the campaign plan based on the four of the five (do not worry about campaign organization) components of a modern campaign discussed in the lecture notes. In your paper, please address the following:

Candidate: A description of the qualifications (personal and professional) of the fictional candidate you will be working for. Create the biography for your candidate, including name, experience, history and characteristics (include political party) for your candidate. (Unit 2 Written Lectures, Slide 22)

Campaign Message: Select one of the campaign messages in the notes and talk about how it will be used in your campaign- it should be a good fit for the candidate you describe. (Unit 2 Written Lectures, Slide 23)

Campaign Strategy: Explain what types of voters are likely to vote for you (based on candidate qualities and campaign message). (Unit 2, Written Lectures, Slide 24)

Campaign Resources: Explain what types of people are most likely to donate money to and work in your campaign. (Unit 2, Written Lectures, Slide 24)

Question 3127 Constraints Of Powers And Legislative Branch

The legislative branch does not work in a vacuum. Instead, Congress crafts legislation with the full knowledge that the other two branches of government have the ability to limit the power of the legislative branch. However, checks and balances are a two-way street: the U.S. Constitution also delegates powers to the legislative branch to limit the powers of the judiciary and executive branches. Understanding these checks and balances is important from a constitutional perspective. It also gives you some insight into the constraints that members of the House and Senate are cognizant of as they go about the process of constructing public policy.

Think about the interactive constraints and powers of the legislative branch in relation to the judicial and executive branches. Consider, for example, how the budget process gives power and/or places restraints on the legislative branch of government. Also consider how the powers of the legislative branch might serve as a check on the policymaking powers of the judicial and executive branches.

Select one constraint and one power of the legislative branch of government. Consider how you might explain each. Think about how the power you selected specifically serves as a check on the other branches of government.

The Assignment must be 1-1.5 pages and include:

  • Post an explanation of one constraint on the policymaking powers of the legislative branch in the US
  • Then explain one power that allows the legislative branch to serve as a check on the policymaking powers of the executive and judicial branches.

Question 3128 Political Science Discussion Post Comment/Response

Question Description

In America today people get to elect the politicians they want to run their government. In many countries the citizens do not get to vote and others get to vote but there is only one candidate so it is a mute point if they vote or not. In America, the citizens not only get to vote for the officials that control their lives, they get to choose the candidates. The first step is the primaries, where the parties choose their candidates. It happens at every level, state , county and cities. In California, we have County Supervisors, City Mayors, and State Governor, just as an example of who is elected in our State, among many other positions, like Judges and the Chief of Police and State Senators and others. Most of all those positions have to go through a Primary, then the General Election, which is held every year on the first Tuesday of November. Every four years it is the big election, where we vote for the President . Over time it seems like the election process has changed.

First of all, the type of ballots that we get has changed over time. It was a straight ticket vote where all the candidates were on one ballot together based on their party, so you choose a party, grabbed a ballot and voted for everyone on that page. Then it evolved to what we have now is voting on a computer in many areas, or voting on a little punch booklet. All the candidates are on the ballot and we get to choose exactly who we want to vote for. As for the President, the person has to be nominated at the party’s National Convention. Also, at that time they draft the party platform, a statement of basically the party’s rules.

Then we have the electoral college controversy. The states all hold their presidential elections in November every four years and get the results then the Electoral College votes in December, someone from each and every state. There is an unwritten rule that the Electoral College votes the way their state voted, like if Abraham Lincoln won, the electoral college votes for Abe. the winner of this Electoral college vote, is deemed the winner. Over the 200 plus years that we have been using this system, our country has been doing very well, surprisingly enough. Now, there’s a big movement to change the voting system and eliminate this system. According to all knowledgeable people about this, it will never change . It will throw off the whole election protection of fairness. Without the way we do it now, the President will be elected solely by New York and California and maybe Texas and Ohio. We have 50 states that need to be included. Everyone wants equality and fairness so we cannot eliminate the Electoral College. Many young people think it seems more fair to have the majority vote decide who wins, but it is not.

The next major issue people are contentious about is that they want the candidates to only talk about issues and what they will do if they are elected, not to have negative campaigns and to keep everything friendly. That’s a great idea, but it does not work. Especially since today’s news media is not like it should be in reporting the facts and real news. The way the citizens learn about the candidates is by the campaigning and especially the debates. Many people obviously liked what Trump said during the primaries and then continued to like him and he won the election. This surprised many news people because in their opinion, he was not doing things the way they thought he should do and say things. It was almost as if the news media was in charge of the candidates and it was their demand that the candidate obey what they say. The funny thing is it ended up that the general public did not want the news media to control the candidates. It seemed like the general public was appreciative of straight forward talk, direct messages through Twitter and Instagram and they were tired of politicians who just had professionals write everything they should say on a teleprompter. In 2016, people were just happy to have a candidate with an alternative style and so, that candidate won. People were tired of all talk and no action.

I am of course, very skeptical of just about everything, so, it’s just me but I feel like there was lots of voter fraud in the 2018 midterms. I do not think there was as much in the 2016 election because no one ever imagined that Trump would win, so no one had to cheat. But in 2018, everyone in the swamp was running scared so they probably had a few million dead people vote. I read about many people who were caught cheating in that election.

In a perfect world, I would sure like to invent a fool proof voting machine, maybe voting by fingerprints, or something to keep our elections truly legit. I worry about our future and being free to vote and having our vote count. It is a very real concern in the whole world, especially in our country. We want the good guys running the country.

Question 3129 Electoral and Party Systems

Electoral & Party Systems): Again, unless some country is going through a constitutional change between systems, it’s unlikely you’ll find something direct about electoral systems. Therefore, you should find some news story about electoral competition (maybe an election coming up, an election that recently occurred, or controversy over one that recently occurred).The news link is https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w172wy9gq9xsk3x

What Needs to Go In an Entry?

Each entry needs to have four things:

1) A link to the story you are using, if it is available on the web. If you find a story in a print publication, you should be able to find and provide the link to it online. Many radio and television stories also likely have web links to listen or watch.

2) A short description of the event being covered. You do not need to get in great detail here. Just tell enough to cover the main points of the story. This need not be more than 2-3 sentences.

**Important: Do not cut and paste text from the story itself and use that as your summary. This constitutes plagiarism. The summary must be in your own words!**

3) Somewhere, in either the summary or the questions, you need to make it clear why you see a connection between this particular event or news story and the topic we have just covered. For example, one could write an entry on a story about the poor condition of roads in Kenya and how that has contributed to a recent traffic accident there. However, you should also make clear that you understand
that this story is related to the topic of The State (if you’re writing for that particular topic), in that even minimalists think that states should maintain roads, and the fact that Kenya does not do that very well is some indication of a weaker state.

4) At least 2 questions that came to mind as you read the story. I anticipate that these will mostly be “how” or “why” questions. For example, if you’ve read a story about ethnic violence in Myanmar (Burma), a question might be, “Why did Group A attack Group B?” If civilians, or even children, were targeted in the attack, a good question would be “Why did the attackers target children?”

A really good question integrates significant amounts of context from the story. For example, if you were reading a story from August 2013 about the elections in Zimbabwe, and the story mentioned how then-President Mugabe’s ZANU-PF party won quite a few seats in opposition strongholds (such as Masvingo Province), and how the last election in 2008 had involved significant violence against members of the opposition there, you could ask, “Why did people in Masvingo Province, who had voted for the opposition in the past, vote for Mugabe’s party in this election? Wouldn’t the violence people in the region suffered at the hands of ZANU-PF supporters in 2008 have made them unlikely to ever vote for ZANU-PF?”

These questions should be something that intrigues, puzzles, or even confuses you about the story. After a few weeks of this, you will hopefully be asking the types of questions that political scientists try to answer in their work.

Bad questions (for the purpose of this assignment) would be ones that are more strictly factual in nature. For example, if you read an article on the 2013 election in Zimbabwe, and it mentioned that ZANU-PF won in Masvingo Province, a good question would *not* be, “How many people voted in Masvingo Province?” Other inappropriate questions would be, “When did Zimbabwe get its independence?” “How old is Robert Mugabe?” “What are the main crops grown in Masvingo Province?” etc.

Also, avoid questions that simply ponder what will happen in the future. For example, “How much longer will authoritarianism last in Zimbabwe?” is not a good question for this assignment. Political scientists mainly focus on analyzing things that have happened in the past.

Question 3131 Evidence-Based Treatment Programming

In a research study published in 1974 commonly referred to as the “Nothing Works” report, Robert Martinson and his colleagues were presumed to have concluded that attempts at rehabilitation will always be unsuccessful. Current research on correctional programming indicates the opposite: Evidence-based approaches are successful in reducing recidivism.

For this Discussion, review the Learning Resources and identify the elements of a successful correctional rehabilitation program based on the corrections research.

Provide a description of an effective evidence-based offender treatment or reentry program. Identify a minimum of three evidence-based elements of this program. Explain which element you think is most important and why.

Question 3132 Federalist papers

Assignment: Application: Literature on Democratic Governance

In this week’s Discussion, you analyzed founding documents of American democracy to determine how democratic concepts and principles are manifested in those early writings, including the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution. For this Assignment, you are asked to shift your thoughts to the Federalist Papers. The Federalist Papers are a series of 85 essays written by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay supporting the ratification of the Constitution. Although often overlooked in mainstream education in favor of The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution, The Federalist papers are the best description of the founders’ intent for governance of their new nation. The proposed Constitution was sent to the states for ratification in September 1787. Articles soon appeared and became known as the “Anti-Federalist Papers” which became critical to the new Constitution. In response, Hamilton decided to defend ratification of the new Constitution and began an extensive explanation.

To prepare for this Assignment:

  • Review the articles “Federalist Paper No. 10,” “Federalist Paper No. 51,” and “Federalist Paper No. 78.”
  • Peruse the Walden Library, academic databases, and the Internet for current literature on The Federalist Papers, particularly 10, 51, and 78.
  • Reflect on of the significance of the three selected Federalist Papers (10, 51, and 78) for democratic governance today.
  • Think about how each of the three selected Federalist Papers could be applied to a current situation today.

The Assignment (2 pages):

  • Briefly describe what The Federalist Papers are, why they were written, who the authors were, and why the papers are important today.
  • Describe Federalist Papers 10, 51, and 78. Explain how each can be applied to governance today.
  • Explain which of the three selected Federalist Papers you believe has had the most significant impact on governance in America and explain why.
  • If you live outside the United States, explain which of the three selected Federalist Papers most closely resembles a principle of government in your country and explain why.

Question 3133 Statesmanship to a Public Administration

In these papers, you will apply your model of statesmanship to a particular Public Administration context.

In this case study, you will apply the Statesmanship model you discussed in Module 1 to a real, specific public administration context. What type of interpersonal skills are needed to effectively administer statesmanship in that context? Remember to discuss the importance of emotional intelligence and covenant in your case study.

General Guidelines:

  • Case Study scenarios must be taken from documented (published) public administration contexts; no hypotheticals are allowed. Students can focus on one particular public administration organization or may refer to a particular situation (well-documented by the research) that many public administrators face.
  • Integrate Biblical principles in your case study discussion.
  • All ideas shared by the student must be supported with sound reason and citations from the required readings, presentations, and additional research.
  • The paper should be 4-5 pages of content in length (not counting the title page or references), double-spaced, and in APA format.
  • All required readings and presentations from the assigned module must be cited.
  • 3-5 additional sources must be used. This need not be scholarly so long as they are provide relevant political and economic analysis of your chosen nation. Wikipedia may not be used (though certainly the student is welcome to review its content), and informal blogs are not appropriate.

https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/00957…

  • Taylor: pg. 111-175; (skim) pg. 71-109.

Based on the relevant lectures and assigned reading for Week 12, take a clear position on your chosen question. No “fence-sitting.” Provide as much support for your position and claims as possible. This also means explaining how the evidence you present supports your claim. Evidence/support rarely, if ever, “speaks for itself.” Make sure that all references to the assigned reading include page numbers [e.g., (Losurdo, pg. 15).] and all references to the lecture are cited by the week of the lecture and the title of the slide being referenced [e.g., (Lecture, Week 1, “What is Liberalism?”).]. Citations should be placed at the end of the relevant sentence(s), prior to the final punctuation. If you include mentions of current events, news stories, or historical events, please provide proper citations for those as well. Please use in-text/parenthetical citations, not footnotes or endnotes, for all citations. Remember, you need to include citations for all references to words AND ideas that are not your own, regardless of whether you are quoting directly or not. Please email me if you have a specific question about the reference/citation requirements. Any post that does not include any properly cited references will not receive credit. Posts that have some properly cited references but are missing other citations where they are necessary, will receive partial credit.

Grammar and spelling do not technically “count,” but excessive errors and/or errors that interfere with my ability to figure out what you are saying will negatively impact your grade. Reading over your post out loud to yourself once before submitting it is a simple and easy way to catch most major mistakes.

There is no specific right or wrong answer, only well-argued and well-supported responses or poorly argued and poorly supported responses. There is no specific word count requirement. Generally speaking, discussion posts should be between 400 and 500 words, but this is only a loose guideline. No credit will be gained or lost by meeting (or failing to meet) this word count guideline. Posts will be evaluated on substance alone (i.e., answering the question given or fully explaining your own take, clear argumentation, support, effort, and creativity).

Question 3137 Riley V. California Cloud Computing Court Case Brief

In both your textbook and supplemental materials you have learned about how cases make it to the Supreme Court. In this discussion you will have a chance to choose a recent (within the past 5 years) Supreme Court case, summarize it, think more deeply about its possible impact on politics/your own life and discuss this impact with others. Not all of these cases have been decided yet, so you may also need to find out the status of the case.

Getting Started

Step 1: Choose Your Case

Choose a case that has either been decided or will be decided this term:

You can go to OYEZ.ORG 2013 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.cases for a list of current cases. If you decide to research some of the cases that have gotten a lot of press recently, you are welcome to choose one of these to research:

  • Town of Greece v. Galloway
  • Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby
  • Fernandez v. California
  • Riley v. California
  • McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission

Step 2: Research Your Case

Find out the following information about your case:

  • Has a decision been made in your case? If yes, what was that decision? How many Justices voted for/against the decision? (The page for the case you are researching on OYEZ.ORG (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.will have this information – at the bottom of the page you can also see who voted for/against this as well as sort by ideology).
  • What is the issue being discussed? Summarize the main points.
  • What are the two sides of argument? Summarize those.
  • Why do you think this issue this issue is important? What impact could this have?
  • Do you think ideology impacted this case? If so, how?

Some places to go to research more about your issue:

  • Oyez.org (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
  • SCOTUS Blog (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.(the Supreme Court Blog – the search feature will pull up information about your case)
  • PCC Shatford Library Databases. Try Opposing Viewpoints in Context or National Newspapers Core. If accessing off campus, you will need to enter your LancerPoint ID and password.

Step: 3 Create Your Summary + Thought Questions

Combine the information you have found and create a 300-400 word summary and analysis of this issue for your initial post in your own words based on your research.

  1. Post your summary of your article and the websites you got your information from. Make certain to include a citation.
  2. Create 1 or 2 thought questions about the article. These should be questions that help your classmates’ think more deeply about the topic and their own perspective. Such as:
    1. If decision is made …. , what do you think would happen?
    2. How should the public respond to…?
    3. Why do you think…?
    4. How do you feel about…?

Question 3138 Methods Used In Comparative Administration

Compare and contrast the methods that are utilized in these three articles. Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these varying methods. What major differences exist in the methods used in comparative administration compared to other areas of public administration you are familiar with? Finally, which (if any) of these methods might you consider using in your own research project on comparative administration?

Question 3139 Terrorism Must be Dealt With as a Military Threat to American Security

Terrorism must be dealt with as a military threat to American security, not as a simple law

enforcement issue. Terrorists are hardened individuals who cannot be reasoned with or

rehabilitated. It is the single greatest threat to the lives of Americans. Disagree or agree.

Papers should be about 5 double spaced pages, not including citations. You will be graded on the following aspects of your paper:

1) Presenting your case persuasively through reference to the academic scholarship you have

reviewed. The items on your annotated bibliography will not necessarily be enough. These

should be based as much as possible on facts rather than mere opinion. For instance it is not

enough to just assert that free trade is bad for American workers or that Kim Jong-Un is crazy

and cannot be trusted. We need some citations to back that up and those citations must be

academic in nature, not themselves just unsubstantiated assertions.

2) Consideration of alternative viewpoints and explanation of why you feel them lacking. These can

be alternative points of view that you have read or those you might logically imagine given the

pieces you have read or your own brainstorming.

3) Organization and grammatical writing.

4) Depth of research and proper citation, using MLA style. Minimum of 15 references.

-15 academic sources

-with bibliography

  2. An essay full of opinion without any supporting data is not a good essay.
  3. Avoid attacks to the person by finding holes in their logic or showing that empirical evidence does not support their position
  4. Do not build strawman arguments: a strawman argument is an exaggeration or misrepresentation of an opposing view.
  5. Dont turn in essay full of grammatical errors
  6. Dont write an incoherent paper. MAKE IT CLEAR. Make it logical and in order
    1. You have to make it make sense
  7. Don’t rely on just economic journals. 2-3 are okay but you should use mostly political science literature

Question 3140 Advanced Studies Texas V Johnson

Essay 5-7 pluse the fist page the name and the last page of the resources

its about Texas V Johnson

In addition to your current event presentations, please write 5-7 page research paper based on library and online sources analyzing the Supreme Court Case. This will be due on blackboard on 3/30/2019. You are required to write a detailed evaluative research paper that will be a minimum of 5 pages in length (not including work cited, abstract or cover page). The only case I will not allow is Roe v Wade. I’ve read a great number of papers on this case.

  1. Give a brief historical background of the case including the issue argued.

Question 3141 Founders of Constitution IN United States

For this discussion topic, you should do a bit of reading online about the founders and their intentions when drafting our Constitution. Much of Beard’s thesis has been debunked, yet his essential argument remains. Were the Founders motivated by lofty ideals, or merely self-interested, wealthy men, looking to secure their wealth and power?

Question 3142 Constraints of Powers on Legislative Branch

The legislative branch does not work in a vacuum. Instead, Congress crafts legislation with the full knowledge that the other two branches of government have the ability to limit the power of the legislative branch. However, checks and balances are a two-way street: the U.S. Constitution also delegates powers to the legislative branch to limit the powers of the judiciary and executive branches. Understanding these checks and balances is important from a constitutional perspective. It also gives you some insight into the constraints that members of the House and Senate are cognizant of as they go about the process of constructing public policy.

Think about the interactive constraints and powers of the legislative branch in relation to the judicial and executive branches. Consider, for example, how the budget process gives power and/or places restraints on the legislative branch of government. Also consider how the powers of the legislative branch might serve as a check on the policymaking powers of the judicial and executive branches.

Select one constraint and one power of the legislative branch of government. Consider how you might explain each. Think about how the power you selected specifically serves as a check on the other branches of government.

The Assignment must be 1-1.5 pages and include:

  • Post an explanation of one constraint on the policymaking powers of the legislative branch in the US
  • Then explain one power that allows the legislative branch to serve as a check on the policymaking powers of the executive and judicial branches.

Question 3146 Birth Of Rights And Current Women’s Rights Violations

Paper topic :The Universal Declaration of Independence states every human right an individual should have just because they are human. However, many of these rights are ideas of the west and do not exist in the eastern countries. Basic rights such as education, right to marry whom you want, right to abortion, equal pay and much more are limited or not accessible to some females. Discuss the most talked about women’s rights violations that are occurring today. After gathering a list of the biggest women’s rights violation, the paper will go into detail about the issue, what is being done about it, cultural influences and more.

Question 2851 Future without Global Warming

It is a three-part essay. In the first part, you will need to give a brief summary of 3 of the major environmental paradigms covered in the class and make an argument for the one(s) that you consider most convincing (that is, able to address the environmental/climate crisis). The major paradigms were covered in lecture. They include conquest mentalities, preservation and conservation, modern mainstream environmentalism, environmental justice, and the two principal meanings of sustainability (Bruntland’s sustainable development vision and free-market/corporate sustainability). Note: it might behoove you to conclude that more than one is very convincing, but instead of defending them separately, use your critical thinking skills to bring them together to form your own environmental ethics. Be sure that if you synthesize two or more paradigms that your new formulation does not have contradictions. For instance, in an extreme case, the conquest paradigm does not square very well with modern environmentalism for reasons that should be evident from lecture and readings.

Question 2852 Environmental Paradigms Corporate

– make an argument about which paradigm you think is most convincing

“Convincing” as far as which underlying ideology can lead to solving climate and environmental issues

– A single paradigm may not be perfect; feel free to combine elements of other paradigms to create your ideal paradigm (but make sure they don’t contradict)

Part 2 :

describe and analyze 2 different alternate worlds/proposals

– Technological fixes, free market/ corporate environmentalism, social democratic, eco-socialism

Context: Who? What? When? Where? Why? –

Cite class material! § You must cite course reading and lectures

Note: These are the practical solutions to climate change that have been proposed • make an argument about which solution(s) you think best align with your paradigm

Demonstrate how a belief in the paradigm you described in Part 1 is intrinsic to or supportive of the proposed solution.

  • What is the research method (survey, participant observation, experiment, secondary sources, or interviews) used by the researchers?
  • What were the results or findings of the research?
  • What do you think would be a good solution to the social problem?

As always, remember to use APA format for the essay style, in-text citations, and in the listing of your sources on the reference page. Submit your essay (written in 12-point font) describing your application project and your findings.

Question 2858 HR Management Hundred Years’ Shifts In Type Of Jobs And Implications

Workplace Shifts

Society has evolved over the last century causing organizations to change with the times.

This evolution has, in turn, required workers to “re-tool” to be a productive and indispensable member of the workforce.

  • Using this lead-in as the context, describe the workforce shifts in types of jobs during the past hundred years. Also, answer the over-arching question, “What implications have these workforce shifts created for today’s HR manager?”

The requirements below must be met for your paper to be accepted and graded:

  • Write between 750 – 1,250 words (approximately 3 – 5 pages) using Microsoft Word in APA style, see example below.
  • Use font size 12 and 1” margins.
  • Include cover page and reference page.
  • At least 80% of your paper must be original content/writing.
  • No more than 20% of your content/information may come from references.
  • Use at least three references from outside the course material, one reference must be from EBSCOhost. Text book, lectures, and other materials in the course may be used, but are not counted toward the three reference requirement.
  • Cite all reference material (data, dates, graphs, quotes, paraphrased words, values, etc.) in the paper and list on a reference page in APA style.

References must come from sources such as, scholarly journals found in EBSCOhost, CNN, online newspapers such as, The Wall Street Journal, government websites, etc. Sources such as, Wikis, Yahoo Answers, eHow, blogs, etc. are not acceptable for academic writing.

Question 2859 C++ Programming Internet Provider Anonymous Data Project

Imagine a fictitious Internet provider that keeps the following “anonymized” data about each of their customers and the services they purchase. The data is anonymous, as many modern data sets are, to allow the data to be processed with fewer privacy concerns. Customer ID takes the format one letter A-Z followed by 5 numbers 0-9. For example, A123, B777, C817 are all valid Customer IDs.

StreamingMovies, StreamingTV and MultipleLines are boolean values represented by 0 (false) or 1 (true). For example, if the customer record has ‘1’ for a StreamingMovies value, it means the customer subscribes to the StreamingMovies service.

MonthlyCharges is a floating point value, representing the customer’s monthly bill.

Write a C++ console program that prompts a user to enter attributes for three customers, and outputs the collected data in a formatted table.

Since the code block to prompt the user for attributes and cin and store their values is to be used three times instead of just one, write a generic value-returning function to do all that and return a ‘Customer’ data structure (struct). Call it three times from main — once for each customer.

You may write a void function to output the result for a Customer struct, passed as a parameter to the function. Or do so in a code block in main — your choice.

Here are other requirements:

  1. Define a ‘struct Customer’ data type with the fields and types from the above table.
  2. In the output, include table column headings, correctly-spaced.
  3. The total of all column widths and the spaces separating them should not exceed 80 spaces.
  4. You can use either cin >> for the attributes or getline().
  5. Serialize down to customers.txt as the last thing that your program does. If you do this right, the file should have 15 lines — 5 for each of the 3 objects.

We will not fully implement serialization in this assignment. But to prepare for it in later assignments, you’ll include “serializing down” int his one. It will have no effect on the program, because you won’t be serializing up. But it’s done this way here to get you used to making sure that serializing down works right before attempting add serializing up in all future work.

Question 2861 Shifting Focus On Hold-out In SEP Licensing

Licensure/Registration

When thinking about what it means to be licensed or registered, we have to consider that regulation occurs when licensure and re-licensure is sought. The regulating body can be governmental (local, state, or federal) as well as an outside agency. As you explored this week, there are multiple ways in which one can become licensed or registered, and the profession selected will dictate how this process occurs.

How do you feel about the process of licensure or registration? Do you think additional professions should be included or that there are enough controls? You might want to view this website for information on Florida’s licensed professions: http://www.doh.state.fl.us/mqa/med-boards.html. This list is not all-inclusive, but it will give you a general idea of regulated professions in the State of Florida.

Question 2877 Berkeley University Desert Biome

USE THIS INFORMATION TO ANSWER QUESTIONS:

Deserts cover about 30% of the land. Desert climates are characterized by the fact that water is unavailable for living things. Some deserts are hot, with very little rainfall. Some deserts are not hot. These “cold deserts” receive some of their rain at a time when it is too cold for plants to use it. Organisms living in deserts have adapted to the harsh conditions. Plants such as cacti retain moisture in their stem tissues and have eliminated leaves to reduce water loss. Animals living in the desert, such as jack rabbits and kangaroo rats, have adaptations for water conservation including behavior, such as feeding at night, and physiology, such as very efficient kidneys.

Deserts occur where rainfall is less than 50 cm/year. Although most deserts, such as the Sahara of North Africa and the deserts of the southwestern U.S., Mexico, and Australia, occur at low latitudes, another kind of desert, cold deserts, occur in the basin and range area of Utah and Nevada and in parts of western Asia. Most deserts have a considerable amount of specialized vegetation, as well as specialized vertebrate and invertebrate animals. Soils often have abundant nutrients because they need only water to become very productive and have little or no organic matter. Disturbances are common in the form of occasional fires or cold weather, and sudden, infrequent, but intense rains that cause flooding.

There are relatively few large mammals in deserts because most are not capable of storing sufficient water and withstanding the heat. Deserts often provide little shelter from the sun for large animals. The dominant animals of warm deserts are nonmammalian vertebrates, such as reptiles. Mammals are usually small, like the kangaroo mice of North American deserts.

There are four major types of desert biomes: hot and dry , semiarid, coastal, cold.

Learn more: http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/exhibits/biomes/deserts.php

Hot and dry desert
The four major North American deserts of this type are the Chihuahuan, Sonoran, Mojave and Great Basin. Others outside the U.S. include the Southern Asian realm, Neotropical (South and Central America), Ethiopian (Africa) and Australian. The seasons are generally warm throughout the year and very hot in the summer. The winters usually bring little rainfall.

Temperatures exhibit daily extremes because the atmosphere contains little humidity to block the Sun’s rays. Desert surfaces receive a little more than twice the solar radiation received by humid regions and lose almost twice as much heat at night. Many mean annual temperatures range from 20-25 0 C. The extreme maximum ranges from 43.5-49 0 C. Minimum temperatures sometimes drop to -18 0 C.

Rainfall is usually very low and/or concentrated in short bursts between long rainless periods. Evaporation rates regularly exceed rainfall rates. Sometimes rain starts falling and evaporates before reaching the ground. Rainfall is lowest on the Atacama Desert of Chile, where it averages less than 1.5 cm. Some years are even rainless. Inland Sahara also receives less than 1.5 cm a year. Rainfall in American deserts is higher by almost 28 cm a year.

Soils are course-textured, shallow, rocky or gravely with good drainage and have no subsurface water. They are coarse because there is less chemical weathering. The finer dust and sand particles are blown elsewhere, leaving heavier pieces behind.

Canopy in most deserts is very rare. Plants are mainly ground-hugging shrubs and short woody trees. Leaves are “replete” (fully supported with nutrients) with water-conserving characteristics. They tend to be small, thick and covered with a thick cuticle (outer layer). In the cacti, the leaves are much-reduced (to spines) and photosynthetic activity is restricted to the stems. Some plants open their stomata (microscopic openings in the epidermis of leaves that allow for gas exchange) only at night when evaporation rates are lowest. These plants include: yuccas, ocotillo, turpentine bush, prickly pears, false mesquite, sotol, ephedras, agaves and brittlebush.

The animals include small nocturnal (active at night) carnivores. The dominant animals are burrowers and kangaroo rats. There are also insects, arachnids, reptiles and birds. The animals stay inactive in protected hideaways during the hot day and come out to forage at dusk, dawn or at night, when the desert is cooler.

Semiarid desert
The major deserts of this type include the sagebrush of Utah, Montana and Great Basin. They also include the Nearctic realm (North America, Newfoundland, Greenland, Russia, Europe and northern Asia).

The summers are moderately long and dry, and like hot deserts, the winters normally bring low concentrations of rainfall. Summer temperatures usually average between 21-27 0 C. It normally does not go above 38 0 C and evening temperatures are cool, at around 10 0 C. Cool nights help both plants and animals by reducing moisture loss from transpiration, sweating and breathing. Furthermore, condensation of dew caused by night cooling may equal or exceed the rainfall received by some deserts. As in the hot desert, rainfall is often very low and/or concentrated. The average rainfall ranges from 2-4 cm annually.

The soil can range from sandy and fine-textured to loose rock fragments, gravel or sand. It has a fairly low salt concentration, compared to deserts which receive a lot of rain (acquiring higher salt concentrations as a result). In areas such as mountain slopes, the soil is shallow, rocky or gravely with good drainage. In the upper bajada (lower slopes) they are coarse-textured, rocky, well-drained and partly “laid by rock bench.” In the lower bajada (bottom land) the soil is sandy and fine-textured, often with “caliche hardpan.” In each case there is no subsurface water.

The spiny nature of many plants in semiarid deserts provides protection in a hazardous environment. The large numbers of spines shade the surface enough to significantly reduce transpiration. The same may be true of the hairs on the woolly desert plants. Many plants have silvery or glossy leaves, allowing them to reflect more radiant energy. These plants often have an unfavorable odor or taste. Semiarid plants include: Creosote bush, bur sage (Franseria dumosa or F. deltoidea), white thorn, cat claw, mesquite, brittle bushes (Encelia farinosa), lyciums, and jujube.

During the day, insects move around twigs to stay on the shady side; jack rabbits follow the moving shadow of a cactus or shrub. Naturally, many animals find protection in underground burrows where they are insulated from both heat and aridity. These animals include mammals such as the kangaroo rats, rabbits, and skunks; insects like grasshoppers and ants; reptiles are represented by lizards and snakes; and birds such as burrowing owls and the California thrasher.

Coastal desert
These deserts occur in moderately cool to warm areas such as the Nearctic and Neotropical realm. A good example is the Atacama of Chile.

The cool winters of coastal deserts are followed by moderately long, warm summers. The average summer temperature ranges from 13-24 0 C; winter temperatures are 5 0 C or below. The maximum annual temperature is about 35 0 C and the minimum is about -4 0 C. In Chile, the temperature ranges from -2 to 5 0 C in July and 21-25 0 C in January.

The average rainfall measures 8-13 cm in many areas. The maximum annual precipitation over a long period of years has been 37 cm with a minimum of 5 cm.

The soil is fine-textured with a moderate salt content. It is fairly porous with good drainage. Some plants have extensive root systems close to the surface where they can take advantage of any rain showers. All of the plants with thick and fleshy leaves or stems can take in large quantities of water when it is available and store it for future use. In some plants, the surfaces are corrugated with longitudinal ridges and grooves. When water is available, the stem swells so that the grooves are shallow and the ridges far apart. As the water is used, the stem shrinks so that the grooves are deep and ridges close together. The plants living in this type of desert include the salt bush, buckwheat bush, black bush, rice grass, little leaf horsebrush, black sage, and chrysothamnus.

Some animals have specialized adaptations for dealing with the desert heat and lack of water. Some toads seal themselves in burrows with gelatinous secretions and remain inactive for eight or nine months until a heavy rain occurs. Amphibians that pass through larval stages have accelerated life cycles, which improves their chances of reaching maturity before the waters evaporate. Some insects lay eggs that remain dormant until the environmental conditions are suitable for hatching. The fairy shrimps also lay dormant eggs. Other animals include: insects, mammals (coyote and badger), amphibians (toads), birds (great horned owl, golden eagle and the bald eagle), and reptiles (lizards and snakes).

Cold desert
These deserts are characterized by cold winters with snowfall and high overall rainfall throughout the winter and occasionally over the summer. They occur in the Antarctic, Greenland and the Nearctic realm. They have short, moist, and moderately warm summers with fairly long, cold winters. The mean winter temperature is between -2 to 4 0 C and the mean summer temperature is between 21-26 0 C.
The winters receive quite a bit of snow. The mean annual precipitation ranges from 15-26 cm. Annual precipitation has reached a maximum of 46 cm and a minimum of 9 cm. The heaviest rainfall of the spring is usually in April or May. In some areas, rainfall can be heavy in autumn. The soil is heavy, silty, and salty. It contains alluvial fans where soil is relatively porous and drainage is good so that most of the salt has been leached out.

The plants are widely scattered. In areas of shadscale, about 10 percent of the ground is covered, but in some areas of sagebush it approaches 85 percent. Plant heights vary between 15 cm and 122 cm. The main plants are deciduous, most having spiny leaves. Widely distributed animals are jack rabbits, kangaroo rats, kangaroo mice, pocket mice, grasshopper mice, and antelope ground squirrels. In areas like Utah, population density of these animals can range from 14-41 individuals per hectare. All except the jack rabbits are burrowers. The burrowing habit also applies to carnivores like the badger, kit fox, and coyote. Several lizards do some burrowing and moving of soil. Deer are found only in the winter.

Question 2879 Climate change Solutions

My issue is about Climate change Solutions. and the stakeholder that I used in the previous part is “United Nations Security Council”.

Description

Begin by selecting a non-engaged stakeholder who is uninvolved, unconcerned, uninterested, or not invested in the issue you have been researching or in taking action on that issue. In constructing your multimodal argument with this non-engaged stakeholder as your audience, start thinking about how you will educate, engage, and empower this non-engaged stakeholder to agree with your call to action. You will draw on the credible sources of the research you conducted in the past two projects. Respond to the following guiding questions with this research handy and in mind. Note: these questions map onto your course rubric to guide your essay development.

Please copy and paste the questions below or download them into a Word document and answer each question fully. To answer each question fully, you will need to provide at least three complete sentences per question and have answered the entirety of the question(s). Upload your list of answers as a worksheet.

Questions

  1. Why is the issue that you have been researching important and timely? What kind of problem does this issue create? Name the issue, and drawing from your previous research, provide some context as to its background, and briefly note what you already know about this issue.
  2. What persons or organizations would be (or are currently) interested in this issue? Why? Who would not be interested in this issue. Why not?
  3. What do you know about the non-engaged stakeholder(s)? If you have a tangible person or group of people in mind, provide information and describe their non-engagement as best as you can. If you have a more generic sense of a non-engaged stakeholder, how would you define what characterizes this person or group of people who will be the audience that you persuade?
  4. What kinds of questions do you anticipate your audience asking?
  5. Your multimodal argument has a combination of intended purposes: to educate, engage, and empower. What kind of information do you need to provide to educate the non-engaged stakeholder? Give at least 3 examples. Why do you need this information?
  6. Appealing to an audience’s sense of reason and logic with facts, examples, statistics, models is an effective way to educate your audience, but what do you think is the most convincing evidence you could provide that might persuade the non-engaged stakeholder that your argument has merit? Name at least 3 points.
  7. What do you see as possible points of resistance in convincing your audience of the value in engaging in your issue? How will you overcome and refute this resistance without offending your audience?
  8. What frame of mind do you want to put your audience in to appeal to their sense of emotion? How might you create an emotional response to your plea to have your audience take on your cause?
  9. Why should your audience believe in you? What ethos do you bring to the argument? How might you build on the credibility, reputation, or trustworthiness of others who make similar arguments? Think about how your audience could identify with your appeals to ethos. Draw from your research for some examples.
  10. What kind of action do you think would advance your cause or present a reasonable solution to the problem your issue creates? What are the steps to taking this action?

Question 2880 Japanese Beetles Invasive Species Management Plan

Project One:

Invasive Species

“The transplantation of species by humans has occurred throughout history to the point where most people are unable to distinguish between the native and exotic species living in their lands” (Wright, 2011).

An invasive species (can be a plant or animal) is a species that is introduced to an area, whether accidentally or on purpose, that can severely disrupt native species in a given ecosystem. When allowed to proliferate, they can kill off indigenous plant or animal life, causing whole natural habitats to change. Project One will explore invasive species and the consequences of their introduction and presence in non-native ecosystems.

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose an invasive species (plant or animal) to research. Describe the invasive species in detail. Provide background on the species and its native environment. Describe the non-native ecosystem in which the invasive species is found.

Some questions to think about: Where did the species originate? What are the species’ defining characteristics? Does it have any natural predators? Where has the invasive species spread? How was it introduced to the non-native environment? What are the consequences/rewards of the invasive species inhabiting the new environment? What kind of impacts has the invasive species had on the non-native ecosystem? What effects has it had on other wildlife and the biodiversity of the ecosystem? Humans? The economy?

Question 2881 Fossil Fuels Report

Integrating and making sense of interdisciplinary information from various sources is a major objective of this course. Synthesis sessions are designed to allow interaction with your peers in a small group setting to discuss the implications and linkages of each topic in more detail.

Small discussion groups of 4 – 5 students will be formed for each synthesis session. Prior to each session, a handout of Synthesis Session discussion questions (see above) will be made available electronically. In small-group format, each group member will be responsible for answering one of the questions in detail and leading discussion within the group on this topic, integrating the material presented from all sources within the thematic framework of the course. Each group member will be allotted about 30 minutes for discussion and presentation within the first 2.5 hours of class. You will be asked to evaluate your peers on their participation and performance in the small-group discussion sessions.

A properly formatted written synthesis report must be submitted electronically on Sakai to all your peers in the course by midnight two days before each synthesis session. Each synthesis report will consist of a concise (maximum 1500 words) response to the question for which you are responsible.

Substantiate your response and conclusions with properly formatted, academically credible references from outside sources and from course readings. Aim for a minimum of 10 references, at least half of which should be from peer-reviewed academic journals or similar credible academic sources.

Prior to the synthesis session, prepare four brief questions for your peers, one for each of the other topics that you do not report on yourself. These questions do not have to be submitted with your synthesis report. You will prepare them to ensure that there will be plenty of relevant discussion in your group during the question periods, and to evaluate the way in which your peers respond.

Question 2882 Pollution in The Chesapeake Bay

Step 1: Develop a case study and analyze it through the tools of environmental geography

My case study is Pollution in the Chesapeake Bay

Components and steps of the research, generally (and to be reviewed in-class):

  1. Identify your problem/environmental issue
    1. at what scale(s) does the problem occur, and at what scale are the drivers (causes) of the environmental problem?
    2. Are there disagreements about defining the environmental problem?
    3. Who are the major stakeholders, both human and nonhuman?
  2. Identify your primary sources of data.

Question 2887 Laborer Killed in Fall Through Roof

Please don’t forget to review the rubric for discussion board expectations (cite from at least one source, ask a question, etc.)

Laborer Killed in Fall Through Roof
A 40-year-old laborer/helper died when he fell through an opening in a warehouse roof. He fell approximately 27 feet to the floor below.
The employer was demolishing the roof of the warehouse portion of a commercial building. Work was done at night because the coal tar on the roof would release hazardous gases if disturbed in the heat of the day. The site had adequate halogen lighting. None of the workers on the job were using fall protection.
After the roofing material was removed, 4×8 foot sheets of plywood were exposed. Any damaged sheets needed to be replaced. The helper’s job was to follow the workers who were replacing the plywood, and to pick up the damaged sheets of plywood they had removed. He disposed of them in a chute.
On this evening, one worker had removed a sheet of damaged plywood, but had run out of nails to attach the replacement plywood. He walked away to get more nails. The opening where the damaged plywood had been was left unguarded. The crew was not informed that it was temporarily unguarded. The opening was covered by silver-colored insulation inside the roof.
The helper came along, picked up the sheet of damaged plywood, and headed for the chute. He stepped into the opening, ripped through the insulation, and fell. (April 20, 1998)

What should have been done to prevent this accident? Please be sure to cite the OSHA standards.

Question 2889 Position Statement Letter New Technologies To Solve Climate Change Issue

In a democratic society, our elected representatives have a duty to listen to their constituents’ opinions. One of the most effective ways to make your opinion heard is to write a letter. A personal letter carries the most weight with any

recipient than signing a petition.

  • Students in this class have a powerful voice in the issue of climate change. This is due, in part, to the following reasons:
  • After completing the previous lesson on climate change science you know more about the issue than most people.
  • Your knowledge of the issue will allow you to write a well-informed and persuasive letter.
  • You are young, and climate mitigation decisions being made right now will affect the rest of your life.
  • You are able to vote. Decision makers know youth are developing a strong voice and are becoming involved in civic life more than the generations before them.

in the government. For example:

 

  • The President sets the general course.
  • The State Department and its Special Envoy for Climate Change take a leadership role in the negotiations.
  • The Senate Foreign Relations Committee reviews any potential treaties.
  • Congress must ratify any treaties before they become law.

 

The following tips will help you write a powerful letter to a decision maker:

 

  • Keep it short. Limit your letter to one page and one issue.
  • Identify yourself and the issue. In the first paragraph of your letter state who you are and what issue you are writing about.
  • Focus on your main points. Choose the three strongest points to support your argument and develop them clearly. Too much information can distract from your position.
  • Make it personal. Tell your decision maker why the issue matters to you and how it affects you, your family, and your community. Make a connection to the elected official. Did you vote for him or her? Did you contribute to the campaign?
  • Ask for a reply. Include your name and address. Trust your voice. Be polite and take a firm position in your letter. Be confident in your understanding of the issue and remember that the official may know less than you. Thank elected officials when they make.

Question 2892 Delivery Center Research Summery

Research process & Research Summery Text: Summaries of your topic of interest in

written text discussing your research studies and explaining how it has supported the

development of your thesis 500-1000 words. (use images, quotes ect.)

the topic is: This thesis aims to design a centralized automatized delivery center that could be placed in every major metropolis. It is important to create such a structure because there is an increasing demand for online purchases that would require an enormous amount of delivery services.

The delivery center in this thesis is based on three types of delivery methods. First of all, airborne drones would deliver small and light items. Then, underground carriers can transport large items, whereas food deliveries would be handled by driverless vehicles.This design combines vertical storage and automated systems together. It aims reduce the environmental footprint of delivery services and at the same time, increase the efficiency of receiving, sorting and storing a variety of goods.

it is about the building, not the drones, focus on delivery centre and automatized!!!! (about the function or type of building, not how to use drones to delievry )

the research need to be very deep, From different angles, it must be comprehensive, not some common sense.

You need to analyze b y research some books, articles, and analysis charts.

the research is about the topic, not to explian the topic in different words.

Question 2894 Manufacturing Employee’s Actual Exposure to Iron Oxide

The theme or setting for each project

You are employed by Be Safe Consulting, Inc. (BSCI), as an entry level safety consultant. You report directly to Bob Sanders, the supervising Certified Safety Professional (CSP). For the last two months you have been assigned to conduct a comprehensive safety evaluation for Acme Manufacturing Co. Based on the observations, calculations, and recommendations in Unit II through Unit VIII prepare a Comprehensive Report to Bob Sanders, who will, in turn, use this information to prepare a final report to Acme Manufacturing Co. Board of Directors. While the Board of Directors may be looking for detailed business impacts, Bob Sanders is looking for a detail of potential employee hazard exposures and your recommendation rationale (calculations, observations, and/or regulation).

Ventilation Report

You are employed by Be Safe Consulting, Inc. (BSCI) as an entry level safety consultant. You report directly to Bob Sanders, the supervising Certified Safety Professional (CSP). BSCI has been contracted by Acme Manufacturing Co. to conduct a study to determine employee exposures to various particulates and gases. In addition, your company has been contracted to determine if the current ventilation systems that are in place are adequate to protect employees from an over exposure to these chemicals. After conducting a field assessment, prepare a written report that Bob Sanders can utilize to prepare a final comprehensive report for the Board of Directors. During your field investigation, you find the following field observations:

Welding Room

The company has six welding booths, or areas that are partitioned only for the use of welding curtains. The booth is open to mixing in the front and top. The company is worried about the welder’s exposure to iron oxide (PEL 10 mg/m³). For a valid sample, you must have a minimum of six hours of sampling (The remaining two hours of the work day is considered to be equal to or less than the sampled exposure. As a result of your air sampling over an eight-hour time period (i.e., the work schedule), you receive the following analytical report:

Question 2908 Global Environmental Justice & Climate Change Before The Flood

Topic: Environmental Justice and Climate Change

Required Reading:

  1. Green New Deal Resolution
  2. A New Climate for Climate by Justin Worland (Time Magazine, April 1, 2019)

Movie: Before the Flood

Question:

Nearly 70% of Americans believe that climate change is taking place throughout the world. While most Americans believe that climate change depends on making deep structural changes to the world’s economies — such as ending fossil fuel extraction — people can accelerate the process in their own lives. Assess the New Green Deal and the balance between the role that average people can play and the macro-structural trends that impact climate change. Despite scientific evidence, not everyone believes in climate change. Why is that the case?

Question 2909 Air Pollution

Each student must submit a persuasive essay (aka argument essay). The document must be 3-pages (1.5 spacing, size 12 font), plus a 1-page bibliography. Please submit a Word document or PDF.

In a nutshell, using logic and reason, demonstrate that your stance/idea is more legitimate than the contrary. Persuade me (the reader) to adopt that point of view. I strongly suggest that you make this about your debate topic, but it’s not required.

The topic is about Air Pollution.

Question 2910 Restoration Pamphlet

Select a scenario from the list below:

  1. There is a species of fish (with low numbers) that is having trouble traveling up and down the river because of a dam.
  2. Choose an area that is economically depressed but has a lot of species diversity, you need to protect the species while providing jobs for locals.
  3. An animal is being poached for its horn which is believed in some cultures to cure many diseases, it is not critically endangered.
  4. The demand for farming is increasing, which is destroying native forests and affecting their biodiversity.
  5. An animal is starting to become isolated because it is afraid to cross roads created by deforestation.
  6. Local birds typically migrate over the winter, but people are feeding them and thermal pollution at a local stream is keeping the water warmer, so the birds are not migrating, resulting in water pollution.
  7. A drought has been going on for a period of time; the water needed for homes, businesses, and farms has decreased lake and river levels impacting the amount available for local flora and fauna.
  8. Species are being found dead on local beaches due to plastic.

Use the textbook and info-graphic under course materials to find the best resource management practice to implement.

Create a pamphlet addressing the following:

  1. What is the issue and why it would work
  2. Describe the restoration method you selected and why it would be best (with at least two examples of how it has worked in similar situations from peer reviewed sources)
  3. Time frame to complete the plan (include short and long term objectives)
  4. What is the end goal of the restoration project

Question 2922 Improving the Health of American People

Question Description

After reading the attached article please answer the following questions. and reply to the two classmates.

  • Describe the 2 reasons Schroeder gives to explain why the US ranks poorly on many health measures in spite of spending more money than other countries on health care. What other single factor would you suggest that might also contribute to this paradox?
  • In what ways is the problem of obesity in America like the now decreasing problem of tobacco use? In what ways is it different?
  • The pie chart illustrating the 5 proportional categories contributing to premature death in the US are based on total US population mortality. How might these percentages change if the chart were to be redrawn to reflect populations living in poverty in inner cities? People living in poverty in rural areas? Suggest new percentages for each and explain why you think as you do.
  • Social determinants of health are relatively new considerations as predictors of premature death, yet a growing body of research indicates their contribution is strong. Name a social determinant and describe a possible role for the Church in ameliorating it.

Question 2923 Conflict Resolution Case Analysis

CN308:

nt Objectives:

  • Define and apply key concepts and theories important in the related chapter
  • Understand and explain ways these concepts and theories may be applied in your case
  • Understand and explain specific concepts and theories as they are illustrated by your case
  • Use your case analysis as the basis for “talking points” for use in group discussion of the chapter

Why Cases?

Cases teach us by asking questions rather than delivering answers.

They create different kinds of relationships in the classroom than lecturing can (we become a task-focused group). A case study asks everyone to be present, take risks, participate, critique / defend / challenge ideas. The process helps to foster critical thinking and interaction skills. Many cases offer dilemmas without “right” answers. In fact, no amount of additional information will take you to a “right” answer. Y et real-world problems demand answers.

So, what do we do? In this sense, case offer depictions of real people with real problems and gives us practice in thinking them through, applying and testing theories, and seeing ways that key concepts expressed in various forms of jargon and technical language in textbooks actually occur in daily work-life. Thus, life is a problem-set without a single “right” solution. Success depends on how well we see the issues, how well we develop possible solutions, and how well we weigh potential outcomes. It also depends on how well we can communicate about these.

CONTENT AND PREPARATION REQUREMENTS

Case Analysis

The case study analysis (1.5-2-page report) is to be uploaded to the designated dropbox by the due date. Demonstrate your understanding of the chapter concepts through critical thinking and in-depth analysis of the case (not just quick-fix, simple answers).

Below are some Students Brainstorm Examples for your reference.

—————————————-

You need to do as same as any one of the below example:

FIRST STUDENTS

Topic: College cheating scandal

Source: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/lori-loughlin-felicity-huffman-college-183944060.html (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

A group of wealthy parents allegedly paid a college prep organization to take the SAT/ACT in place of their children or to change their answers. Another part of this scandal was bribing college coaches to take in their children as recruits. I think this whole situation is very sad because there are people out there that work very hard and cannot afford college. These parents are not setting a good example for their children. What are they teaching their kids by buying their way through life? The parents should have used their money to get them a good education so that they had the actual abilities to get accepted into these colleges. I would argue that the children should not be punished for such fraudulent behaviors from their parents. Olivia Jade who is Lori Loughlin’s daughter was stripped away from her many sponsorships because of this scandal. Yes, the children were probably aware of what their parents were doing, but I just feel as if the children should not be as punished. Now Olivia’s life is ruined forever because of this scandal. The parents need to be held 100 percent responsible for these scandals.

SECOND STUDENTS

Topic: Vaping

Claim: Many think vaping is better than smoking, however, it is just as or more dangerous.

Source: https://www.procon.org/headline.php?headlineID=005430 (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

Vaping came to be in 2006 and has only gotten more and more popular. The JUUL, which came out in 2015, is a product that goes along with vaping. When these forms of E-Cigarettes began to be sold, they advertised themselves as a way to help people quit smoking and a way to decrease death and diseases caused by traditional cigarettes, however, it is been proved that vaping has started to affect a large number of teens, getting a new generation addicted to nicotine and smoking. So, vaping has solved the problem for the adults smoking but has made it fun and easy for teens.

It is true that vaping involves a safer way to ingest tobacco, but it comes with serious health concerns. E-cigarettes drastically increase the risk for inhalation of terrible chemicals, a stroke, or a heart attack. These objects also come with the risk of exploding, which could lead to the loss of body parts such as eyes, tongues, or teeth, third-degree burns, holes in the roof of the mouth, and even death.

Even though vaping is newer, and Americans tend to think newer means better, does not mean that it is safer than smoking cigarettes.

THIRD STUDENTS

https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/20/us/california-girl-duffel-bag-child-mother-charged/index.html (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

This is the rhetorical situation that I came across. So, basically, this woman killed her 9-year-old daughter, and now she is a convicted felon. I’m not too sure how this could be a persuasive speech, but I do think that it is sick how people can give birth to people and then turn around and kill them. This also reminds me of the time that a guy that went to Plainfield Central killed both of his parents when they were coming to pick him up for spring/winter break (I can’t remember which one). I also don’t know how that could be a persuasive speech, but I also think that it is sort of a mental health thing and that we should really pay more attention to mental health issues because there are people struggling with it, and very few people address it.

FURTH STUDENTS

Topic: 2nd Amendment

Source: https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/04/second-amendment-needs-update-clarify-individual-right/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

Ever since the rise of school shootings, the question of whether or not the 2nd amendment should be changed. I feel as if the 2nd amendment should always stand as a right to United States citizens, although there should be drastic change, such as stronger background checks, shorter ammo clips and not be able to buy assault rifles. Why must we have individuals suffering far more than they should? I agree with the fact when the author states that the purchase of firearms should be regulated. Yes, every individual has the right to their own arms, but I also feel as if a mentally ill person or any individual should not be able to purchase a gun like an AR-15 what is meant for killing.

You need to do as same as any one of the above example in 2 paragraphs

Due date March 21 before 6pm

Link as many concepts (at least 5) from this unit as you can to scenes from the film you choose.

Give your essay the following header:

[Your name]
eCore COMM 1100
[Date]
[Film title]

Grading Criteria:

The film analysis must have a clear introduction, body and conclusion. The introduction should contain an attention getter; a statement of topic (e.g. “This analysis is about The Waterboy.”); a statement of purpose (e.g. to inform, to persuade or to entertain); a thesis that makes a judgment about the value of the film for what it teaches us about communication; and a preview of your main ideas.

The body of the paper should be paragraphed to reflect your main ideas. Your main ideas and supporting ideas should be chosen and organized to demonstrate your understanding of at least 5 key concepts from this unit. Link the key concepts to scenes from the film.

You must turn in this assignment by the due date indicated in the course calendar. As always, proper English should be used; spelling, grammar, and punctuation will be checked. Reference the book and the course material. As well, cite the film and book/written work the film is based upon; and use at least one (1), preferred two (2) outside sources to support your analysis. All Work Cited with in-text citation and in MLA format.

Question 2929 Communication Styles

Overview

Write a 3–4-page report that examines the current research on male and female communication styles.

This exercise allows you to consider the ways gender differences in communication impacts day-to-day interactions in personal and professional environments.

By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria:

  • Competency 1: Critically analyze issues related to gender and communication.
    • Explain current research associated with male and female communication styles.
    • Distinguish between male and female communication styles.
  • Competency 2: Evaluate personal and social dimensions of gender, communication, and culture.
    • Describe the impact of communication styles on workplace communication and interaction.
    • Explain how communication styles differ depending on personal and professional environments.
  • Competency 5: Communicate effectively in a variety of formats.
    • Communicate in a concise, balanced, and organized manner and include an appropriate number of scholarly, high-quality resources.

Context

The Assessment 1 Context document explores the subject of male and female communication styles in greater depth. You may wish to review the document for key concepts and ideas related to the following topics:

    • Communication Differences.
    • Workplace Differences.
    • Strategies for Better Communication.
    • Do Gender Differences Really Matter?

ASSESSMENT 1 CONTEXT

George Bernard Shaw once said, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” Many believe this is never truer than when communicating with someone of the opposite sex. Our ideas about gender differences in communication styles are frequently shaped by circumstance. They are constantly evolving. While it is good to be aware of gender communication differences, you must go beyond assumptions and decide how to respond and interact based on actual behavior.

Communication Differences

Much of the research on gender differences, as they relate to leadership roles, is fairly new. This research was initially driven by the low number of females holding significant leadership roles in corporations, politics, and government. While women have made great strides in recent years, they are still underrepresented at the higher levels of these organizations (Richmond & McCroskey, 2000). Research has found significant differences in the ways men and women communicate, as well as how they lead others (Muir, 2007). Often, these differences account for many misunderstandings and communication breakdowns. In the bulleted lists below, you will find examples of gendered communication differences (Note: Researchers often group male and female communication styles into speech communities.):

Female Speech Communities

    • Use communication as a tool to establish and maintain relationships.
    • Think in “webs,” seeing more connections among individuals and roles, as well as the impact a given communication may have on these connections.
    • Establish equality and symmetry by sharing experiences.
    • Invite others to speak, using more “agreement cues” to indicate value and caring.
    • Pay more attention to relationship than content level in conversation.
    • Engage in more “maintenance work” to sustain conversation (Lieberman, n.d.).

Male Speech Communities

    • Talk to establish status and indicate knowledge and control.
    • Tend to be direct and assertive.
    • Tend to avoid personal disclosures, especially if it suggests vulnerability or weakness.
    • Tend to be less emotionally responsive, often more abstract (versus personal).
    • Interpret smiling as an “emotional” response.
    • Self-identify as instrumental problem solvers, discovering facts and suggesting solutions.
    • Use minimal response cues even if engaged (Lieberman, n.d.).

Workplace Differences

Specific differences in how men and women lead others are also present in the workplace. These differences can often be categorized in four ways: thinking, processing, leading, and speaking (McManus, 1999).

Thinking

Women are often more relationship oriented, while men are more task oriented. For example, women enjoy connecting to others when working, while men are more connected to the task at hand.

Deciding and Processing Information

    • Women like to “talk things out,” while men process things internally.
    • Women tend to work in groups and ask for help, while men work independently.

Leading

Women often take the “majority rules” approach, while men only consult those closest to them.

Speaking

    • Communication style—verbal and nonverbal behaviors are important.
    • Men tend to be more assertive and take up more time and space.
    • Men often talk more than women.

Strategies for Better Communication

Now that we understand the differences between male and female communication styles, it is important to understand how we can bridge the gap between these gender roles in the hope of facilitating effective communication. Below are four strategies we can use to encourage better communications, regardless of gender:

  1. Avoid stereotyping! Some men may communicate using a feminine style, while some women may use a more masculine style. Be aware that biases do exist.
  2. Be open to breaking the cycle. Multiple leadership styles can be effective.
  3. Work together and embrace differences.
  4. Approach different people differently. Stay informed and be a chameleon. Learn more about male and female styles of communication and how to use both.

Do Gender Differences Really Matter?

The purpose of examining gender and communications is not to decide which communicative style is superior. Nor is it to motivate people to change their style. Rather, the purpose of this examination is to identify differences with a goal of understanding how best to communicate. Those around us shape our environment, so we must learn to overcome our differences if we want to work together effectively.We should also recognize that some men and women have almost none of the traits attributed to their respective gender. So it is important to recognize that people are unique and do not fit into a mold. To ensure effective and functional communication takes place, we must learn to understand and respect one another regardless of gender. Our goal should always be to focus on the individual with whom we are working and not the categories that might define him or her.

  2. Analysis.Look at the variety of groups that the label produces. What kind of fan is the label trying to target? How does this label promote its artists and get a recording to the consumer? What obstacles does the label face in popularizing its artists? Is the label fiercely independent, or is its goal to sell to a major label? Is the label struggling, or is it financially viable?
  3. Interpretation.From what you’ve gathered so far from your research, what major problems do independent recording labels face? Do you see independent labels overcoming these problems? How?
  4. Evaluation.What is the value of small independent recording companies to the entire recording industry? What would be different about the recording industry as a whole if small independent labels didn’t exist? Add other questions and information as you go along.

  • Differentiate appropriate levels of self-disclosure and emotional intelligence in various relationships.
  • Describe strategies for using communication techniques to resolve interpersonal conflicts.
  • Analyze the impact of gender and culture on interpersonal communications.

For each of the five learning outcomes, create a separate heading that states the learning outcome that you are addressing. Then, address the following for each segment:

  • Explain the principles of and barriers to effective, competent interpersonal communications. Why do the principles matter? How can your couple or group of co-workers overcome the barriers you have listed?
  • Analyze the role of communication in developing and maintaining one’s self-concept, self-image, and self-esteem. Begin by defining each term and then explain how these three notions of the self potentially impact the relationships of your couple or group of co-workers. What advice can you offer to help them develop a positive self-concept or build each other’s self-esteem?
  • Illustrate the importance of self-disclosure and emotional intelligence in various relationships. What role does self-disclosure play in the relationships of your couple or co-workers? How can their relationships be improved by them becoming more emotionally intelligent? What connections can be made between emotional intelligence and self-disclosure?

    • ASSESSMENT 2 CONTEXT
      Theories About Gender and CommunicationAccording to Fixmer-Oraiz and Wood, a theory is a “way to describe, explain, and predict relationships among phenomena” (Fixmer-Oraiz & Wood, 2019, p. 34). Specifically, theories help make sense of the world around us. “Although we are not always aware of the theories we hold, they still shape how we act and how we expect others to act” (Fixmer-Oraiz & Wood, 2019, p. 34). Moreover, theories are a practical way of explaining what goes on around us, and although we sometimes believe theories are removed from the real world, they are directly connected to our everyday actions (Fixmer-Oraiz & Wood, 2019). It is important to remember the following:
    • A theory represents a particular viewpoint as an attempt to understand phenomena.
    • A theory offers more than explanations; it also influences attitudes and behaviors.
    • One theory should not be considered the theory on gender development; multiple theories work together to create a fuller picture.
    • The study of theoretical approaches to gender development and communication has been on the focus of researchers for many years. Before we can truly understand how males and females communicate, we must understand why we communicate a certain way. To do this we must study the theoretical approaches to gender development and communication.Specifically, gender is a social construct shaped by a number of social characteristics, larger normative expectations, personal experiences, and socializations. As communicators we must recognize the power of language and communication. We must understand why we use this to perceive, judge, and evaluate others.Communication Style Theories
      Following are some of the main theories that help us better understand the why behind our communication styles:Symbolic Interaction Theory
      Symbolic interaction theory helps us negotiate and define a situation. It helps us understand questions such as the following:
    • Who am I?
    • What should I do?
    • What can I expect from you?
    • What does this behavior mean?
    • The symbolic interaction theory suggests that cultural definitions of gender follow us into the workplace, along with specific value placed on “masculine” versus “feminine” behaviors. It suggests that, because you must interpret a new situation based on previous experience, you may have to “feel uncomfortable” to create the perception that is important to you. This discomfort comes from breaking social norms, that is, you are requiring others to actively negotiate a new definition of the situation.Performative Theory
      The performative theory suggests that gender is an expression of identity. Language and how we communicate are part of how we perform this identity. It suggests that we are always engaged in a collaborative performance: male and female define each other. This may speak to the important boundaries we enforce culturally. We call this essentializing, where we assume a dichotomy between men and women. In this experience, gender is a lies on a continuum; it is neither a “he” nor “she.” The performative theory suggests that we can create and support performances to provoke change to socially constructed categories of gender expectations. Routine performances are more important than dramatic departures if change is desired. Heed this word of caution: We are wired to protect self (self-esteem). Change can be seen as threat to our definition of self. Communicate accordingly.Standpoint Theory
      This theory suggests that social location is culturally assigned. You experience society through the lens of the membership groups and the social locations you occupy. Critical evaluation of this location leads to a standpoint. In other words, a feminist perspective does not mean that only “women can understand women.” Members of the majority group (the powerful) have a vested interest in preserving the existing hierarchy and their place in it. As a result, views of social life may be more distorted. There may be a deep need to protect definition of self. Those in subordinate groups must understand their own perspectives to survive. They may also have a clearer view of the network due to outsider status. The standpoint theory holds that you must invest time in understanding the power structure you work in. You will need the support of others seeking to change the communication dynamic in your workgroups.References

Question 2947 Sources for Marijuana Legalization

Instructions: This assignment requires you to work more on finding, evaluating, and planning how to use sources for your final paper.

  • To complete this assignment, you will need to find at least 6 different sources that you plan to use in your final paper.Academic articles, books, and primary documents are all great sources. Newspapers and editorials can also be used, but be selective.Remember, you should already have three sources from completing Activity 10 – use these again for this activity if you are sticking with the same topic.
  • Provide a reference for each of your 6 sources in proper APA format. Visit the APA guide at http://libguides.wvu.edu/apa for clarification on APA style.
  • After each reference, you should provide a paragraph about the source that includes the following information:
    • A brief 1-2 sentence summary of the source’s purpose
    • How you will use the source in your final paper to support your argument
    • Whether the information from that source supports or contradicts other information you have found on the topic
    • Why the source is important to include in your final paper

What to include in your paper: Structure your paper in an organized manner so that there is an introduction, body, and conclusion.

  • In the introduction paragraph of your paper, make sure to clearly state your argument/claim. Your claim should be specific (e.g., if you are arguing for the legalization of euthanasia, are you arguing that it should be legalized under all circumstances or just certain circumstances?).
  • In the body paragraphs of your paper, provide reasons (about 3) to support your argument/claim. Make sure to incorporate compelling evidence and various types of appeals that we have discussed throughout the course to persuade your audience. You should also address and refute potential opposing viewpoints.

Question 2948 Social Relationships and its Benefits Journal

Critical Thinking Application Journal

Instructions:Choose two concepts from the chapter of book and summarize each concept thoroughly, then apply these concept to a real world situation. Make sure it is in an essay format.An easier way to write this journal would be to start with:

  • Introduction- introduce your two concepts and how you are going to apply them to a real world situation.
  • Concept 1- Summarize thoroughly and cite the book.
  • Apply concept 1 through critical thinking skills
  • Concept 2- Summarize thoroughly and cite the book

Make sure to cite your work in MLA or APA format. Use 12 point font. Double Space your paper. Each bullet point in this document should be different paragraphs. There is no page requirement as long as you do all of the above parts of the journal.

One way to cite the book in APA would be

  • Floyd (2017) states that plagiarism “which means using information from another source without giving proper credit to that source.”
  • Intellectual theft in several different ways including global theft, patchwork theft, and incremental theft (Floyd, 2017).

You do not have to use APA for these journals. MLA is fine with me. Always remember to cite anytime you use an idea that is not widely known.

In an essay, discuss some of the specific ways that video games are used in Education. This could include teaching young children to read or write, or it could include training pilots, surgeons, and soldiers. Video games can simulate scenarios and allow people to practice various skills in a safe, controlled environment.

Question 2958  Barrack Obama First Presidential Inaugural Address Speech Criticism

Question Description

In this paper, you are to criticize a speech using the Neo-Aristotelian concepts. Find a speech that interests you; speeches are available in anthologies, online from a variety of sources (see AmericanRhetoric.com) reprinted in newspapers and on the Internet. Do NOT critique a fictional speech (like a speech from a movie).

Please note: The focus here is on public speeches delivered by speakers to a live or televised audience. Short Youtube clips, speeches in movies, editorial articles, press releases, and book chapters are NOT considered public speeches.

Some considerations in writing the paper:

1) Critique the speech using concepts from our discussions of Neo-Aristotelian methodology. This should include a short treatment of context (situation, speaker, audience, constraints), then analysis of the speech itself using three key canon elements (style, ethos, logos, pathos, delivery, memory, arrangement), ending with an assessment of the effects or effectiveness of the speech. See the Classical Criticism Worksheet is you need a layout of the key elements.

2) At the end of the Context section, develop a Thesis Statement (or Research Question) as an italicized single sentence that will focus your analysis of the three key canon elements and clarify argument about the Effect of the speech. put it at the end of the context section. Italicize this!

3) Make titles of main points as arguments (something you claim about the speech/speaker), and support those points with good reasons and quoted examples from the speech, not just assertions. Analyze not just what was done in the speech, but how it was done, perhaps why it was done, and whether or not it was effective. Assess ways of improving the speech as a way of criticizing choices that the rhetormade.

Question 2959 Software Developer John Edward Interview

Find someone who has a job in the field you’d like to enter once you graduate. Set up a time and interview the person, in person. Don’t interview someone you already know, or someone who works at Dominican. Linked-in is a great method to find someone, as are more informal networks and contacts you may already have. Cold calls can be good as well, and will stretch your assertiveness.

You are aiming to find out how they got from where you are (seniors in college) to where they are now. A good tool – but not the only tool — for organizing the interview is the GOSS method. That means you should start out with their:

Goals. What were their goals as a young person?

Obstacles. What sort of obstacles did they face as they worked toward their goals?

Solutions. What sort of solutions did they come up with to deal with the obstacles?

Start. When did they put the solutions into play?

Repeat as necessary.

Write up a 500-600 report that hits the main points of the person’s career path, and also offers your own reflection on what you learned.

Obviously, dress nicely, be polite, be prompt, and honor any promises you make as far as time, etc.

It might be helpful to reach out to more than one person initially, in case the first person doesn’t respond. And if you get two, or three responses by the end of it all don’t worry. They are ALL good contacts for networking as you go forward. (Just tell them that you’ll be contacting them later in the semester.)

Question 2960 Enterprise Risk Management In Manufacturing

Understand how concept mapping can be used to help refine your thinking and writing of your paper.

Concept mapping can be a useful tool for helping you conceptualize your paper. This method is often used in research to help scholars conceptualize research studies. Creating a concept map is useful in helping you think through the major ideas, concept and bodies of literature that are guiding your work and help you organize these in a way that is cohesive, clear and compelling.

Assignment:

1-You specifically need to focus on implementing Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). Choose a “theme” (i.e. ERM in higher education, manufacturing., etc.), and make sure that all your resources relate to your theme.

2-Each of you will identify the main ideas and concepts that are embedded in his/her paper.

3-Once you have generated some concepts to work with, ask yourself how these concepts are related.

4-Create a concept map of the important concepts that underpin your paper and their connection to each other.

* Be creative don’t think about getting the right concept map. Think about the paper you are writing, the underlying thesis statement, the argument that you are making and how the concept embedded in your argument is related.

Once you have created a visual representation of the concepts in your paper, you will use it to answer the following questions (DON’T SIMPLY WRITE THE ANSWERS FOR THOSE QUESTIONS, those questions should help you to write the concept paper):

What are the central concepts at the heart of your paper?

How do you think these concepts related to each other and what is your basis for these?

What is the relationship between the concepts and ideas that you will discuss in your paper?

What literature informs your paper and how does this literature connect / relate?

You need to construct one page concept paper based on the concept map. This paper will illustrate your concept map.

At the end of this assignment, you need only to submit the visual representation of the concept map, and one page concept paper.

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

This assignment can be challenging one. Therefore, to be on the right track please do the following:

1) Read the instructions for completing this assignment carefully.

2) Watch this helpful video about concept map: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhgxuNvbNrA

ASSESSMENT 5 CONTEXT

Over the years, sexual discrimination within the workplace has become less prominent. However, gendered organizational communication is often a key factor in workplace interactions and the overall success or failure of communication. Specifically, many stereotypes exist regarding women and men, masculine and feminine norms, and gendered patterns of communication in organizations. The interworking of gendered relationships within the workplace and the factors that contribute to the success or failure of communication interactions help set the tone within corporations throughout our country. It is important to examine the meaning of personal workplace relationships and models of personal relationships and gain an understanding of how we (the sexes) can better coexist and work together. It is important to understand that, as Fixmer-Oraiz and Wood explain, “personal relationships are those in which partners depend upon each other for various things ranging from material assistance to affection”(2019, p. 173), and that “partners regard each other as unique individuals who cannot be replaced” (p. 173), and finally that “of the many relationships we form, only a few become really personal” (p. 173).

Male and Female Leadership-Style Stereotypes Within the Workplace

Females

  1. Females are expected to play the role of a mother and be nurturing, supportive, and deferential.
  2. Females are expected to smile constantly, listen, and support others
  3. Female employees who are mothers are often considered less reliable and less committed to their work.
  4. Females are more critical of other women.
  5. Females lead democratically.
  6. Females use only positive reinforcement.

Males

  1. Men are expected to be tough and not show affect.
  2. Men are expected to be aggressive and commit themselves more to work than to family.
  3. Men are expected to outearn women.
  4. Men often feel their identity is linked to their earning power.
  5. Men use less positive reinforcement.
  6. Men are very direct.
  7. Men like to work independently.

ASSESSMENT 4 CONTEXT

We enter a gendered society at birth and continue to receive messages about gender throughout our lives. (Wood & Bodey, 2011, p. 100). Is gender learned? Are we born with a specific gender? What does the research suggest? These are the questions we often consider when we study gender.

As you explore these questions, think about how foundational pieces of our identities are shaped throughout our life. It is important to understand that our identities are formed by our culture and other key influences that shape who we are as we grow and develop. The truth is that we do not passively receive gender, but, rather, we select messages to accept or reject over time.

  • Gender is learned.
    • We are born with our sex (male, female), and we learn our gender (masculine, feminine).
    • We learn and express our gender through interactions with others and with the media.
  • Cultures create gender by giving social meanings to biological sex.
    • Gender differs from culture to culture.
    • Currently, in the United States, masculinity is associated with strength, ambition, rationality, and emotional control.
    • Currently, in the United States, femininity is associated with physical attractiveness, deferential and nurturing behavior, emotional expression, and concern with people and relationships.
  • Gender is not stable.
    • Cultural and individual meanings of gender can change over time and context.
    • New identity labels (people who reject traditional gender categories) challenge our ideas about gender.
    • Gender is a relational concept. We can only understand masculinity in relation to femininity, and vice versa. Changing ideas about one gender affect the other.
  • Gender is a social, symbolic construction that varies across cultures, over time within a given culture, over the course of individuals’ life spans, and in relation to the other gender.
    • Self-as-object is a central process in personal identity formation. In this process, we are able to think about, reflect upon, and respond to ourselves. As we internalize others’ views of us, their views become important to how we see and evaluate ourselves.
    • Monitoring is a second process in identity formation, in which we engage in internal dialogues with these internalized perspectives. Through these dialogues, we remind ourselves what others have told us to think, do, look like, feel, and so on.

Unit 2 – Your Own Model of Communication

Design your own model of communication and film a 3-4 minute speech describing the model and the reasons why you designed it the way you did

The goal of this assignment is to describe your model clearly to the audience, present an extemporaneous speech, and formulate an outline that you will turn in along with your speech.

Question 2967 Five Stages for Staying Together

Question Description

In his book Social Intercourse; From Greeting to Goodbye (1978), Mark Knapp introduced his Interaction Stages based on Altman and Taylors Social Penetration theory. In the book, Knapp identifies five relational stages for coming together and five for coming apart. What he does not do is identify the stages that represent staying together.

Your task is to develop at least five stages for Staying Together that fit with Knapp’s model specifically and Social Penetration theory in general. Identify each stage by name, clearly define each stage, and provide a real example with dialogue for each stage. Also, identify the type(s) of relationships that Knapp and your model’s stages do and do not represent, and provide a rationale.

Question 2971 Shopify Annual Report

Each week, you’ll be participating in a threaded discussion relative to chapter topics. They involve the whole class and deal with questions that come up in your chapter readings. You are required to post twice weekly in each unit discussion. In many cases, I will have multiple topics within each chapter discussion. You are not required to post on each topic to receive credit; you are required to respond and/or comment to one or more of the topics twice. Remember, it is a discussion so you should be responding to each other unless, of course, you begin the discussion on a specific topic. Short responses such as “I agree with John” will not count; nor will short one or two sentence responses. Also, if your response/comment is not original in thinking, you will not receive full credit. In other words, be sure to read other comments before you make your own or you could duplicate someone else’s response therefore reducing the point value for your thread. Those who wait until late Sunday may have a more difficult time with this.

Question 2973 Social Media Usage

Part 1

For this assignment, you will write emails explaining a situation to both an employer and a friend.
Your employer has asked you to work on a day that you have already requested off for personal reasons. You are unable to change your plans and must therefore explain why you are unable to work (a family wedding or similar event is a possible choice for this). Your friend has asked you to assist him or her with moving on the same day. Again, you are unable to help because of the same prior engagement.

  1. Write an email to your employer explaining why you are unable to work on the day specified.
  2. Write an email to your friend explaining why you are unavailable to help with his or her move.
  3. In a short, 1-page reflection, explain the differences between how you have communicated in the two emails. Familiarity with the other person, formality, type of language used, and other factors you may wish to include.
  4. Keep in mind the audiences to whom you are writing. Ideas of grammar, formality, and word choice may be very different depending on your audience, but in both cases, clarity and succinctness are important.

Part 2

You have been working on a group project with several other students. The project has generally been going well, but one person on the project has not been pulling his or her weight, relying on everyone else in the group to complete the project. The group has discussed this problem, and you have elected as the person to communicate with the student who has not been helping on the project.

Using Microsoft Word or a similar program, draft an email to your fellow student discussing the issue and what you think can or should be done to resolve it. You will want to communicate carefully, being clear on the problem as you see it without being aggressive or angry. Proper language and tone will be extremely important.

On the same document, in 2-3 paragraphs, discuss how you came to the solution for this issue. In this discussion, include what would constitute a good resolution for the problem in your opinion and what actions (or non-action) by the offending student would cause you to contact the instructor for additional help in resolving the problem.

Part 3

In the same way that you would analyze a work or personal life communication situation, you will be asked to create a short presentation (using media choices below) about the nonverbal communication demonstrated in a series of photographs. In addition to identifying aspects of nonverbal communication, you will also need to show how these elements can affect communication both positive and negatively. Include your observations of how nonverbal elements that you see alter the direction of communication.

  1. Select four of included photographs.
  2. Using either PowerPoint or Prezi, create a presentation that demonstrates your comprehension regarding these communication elements: Please include the following:
    1. A title slide including your name.
    2. Four slides that explain aspects of the nonverbal communication that you see depicted in the photographs. Be sure to include the photograph on the slide. Be as specific and detailed as possible in your description of body language, facial expression, physical distance (if applicable), gesture, and other aspects of nonverbal communication that you see.
  • Using Screencast-o-matic (screencast-o-matic.com) or similar software, create a short video presentation of your PowerPoint or Prezi. Explain in detail the nonverbal elements of communication that you observe in each of the four photographs you have selected. Video should be between four and seven minutes long. This video should either be of the presentation itself or a hybrid video that includes both the presentation and an inset webcam video.
  1. Upload your video to screencast-o-matic, YouTube, or similar online video sharing site and provide a link to your video. Include your PowerPoint or Prezi with your submission.

Part 4

You have just received two emails, one from your boss or supervisor and one from a coworker. The two emails address the same situation. A minor problem has occurred that you may be responsible for creating. Your boss/supervisor has asked you for a resolution to the problem. Your coworker, who has been affected by this problem, is angry with you and has written an inflammatory email accusing you of creating this problem on purpose.

  1. Using word, write an email as a reply to both of the emails that you have received. You should attempt to resolve the problem as efficiently as possible. Since your email will be received both by a supervisor and a coworker, consider all aspects of your communication including the formality of the language you use, grammar, and all aspects of formal communication. Your goal is to solve the problem and maintain your professionalism at the same time.
  2. On the same document, analyze the conflict that has happened. What was the cause of the conflict? How did you attempt to resolve the conflict? What did you need to address in terms of your supervisor’s concerns, and how were these different from your coworker’s concerns? Do you think your supervisor and coworker handled the conflict well in their emails to you? How effective are these emails?

Part 5

For this, you will be asked to generate posts on social media as it is used by businesses.

Your current employer is interested in using various social media to increase the company/organization’s profile in the area. The company/organization has also recently introduced a new product or service that your boss wants the general public to know about. You have been asked to create the initial contact to the public on both Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Select a product or service that is appropriate either for your current job or for the career you intend to have.
  2. Create two Facebook posts of up 100 words each announcing the product/service to the company’s Facebook audience and two tweets (limit 140 characters including spaces) for the company’s Twitter audience announcing the new product or service. These should be written as if they will be posted to social media, but should be submitted as a Word document.
  3. Keep in mind the conventions of social media. Grammar and spelling are critically important, as is maintaining professionalism while still being fun and welcoming to customers or clients.
  4. Write a 2-3 paragraph reflection on how you approached these posts and how writing social media posts for a professional entity like a business differs from your personal use of social media.

Part 6

Consider your experiences at work, school, and in your personal life. You have, at some point, been asked to work with a group to achieve a particular goal. It might have been a group research project, a new marketing plan, a learning plan, a schedule to roll out new technology, planning a wedding, or even planning and creating a large family meal. In many collaborative efforts like these, there are disagreements. Select one collaborative experience from your past that involved some disagreements or significant differences of opinion.

Write a short (2-page) paper in APA style discussing the following elements:

  1. Describe the project that you were working on, including the people involved.
  2. Explain the problem that you encountered with the group. How was that problem overcome? What was the end result of encountering and dealing with that problem?
  3. What do you think was the cause of the problem? How much of the problem came from miscommunication, either from you or from other people involved? What did you do to help resolve the problem?
  4. If you were able to relive that experience, how would you change the way that you approached the encountered problem? How would you communicate differently?
  5. How, ultimately, was the conflict resolved?

Make sure to incorporate compelling evidence and various types of appeals that we have discussed throughout the course to persuade your audience. You should also address and refute potential opposing viewpoints.
