1. Nursing Paper

The first step of the EBP process is to develop a question from the nursing practice problem of interest.

Select a practice problem of interest to use as the focus of your research.

Start with the patient and identify the clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care.

Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT statement in your selected practice problem area of interest, which is applicable to your proposed capstone project.

Conduct a literature search to locate research articles focused on your selected practice problem of interest. This literature search should include both quantitative and qualitative peer-reviewed research articles to support your practice problem.

The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).

Select six peer-reviewed research articles which will be utilized through the next 5 weeks as reference sources. Be sure that some of the articles use qualitative research and that some use quantitative research. Create a reference list in which the six articles are listed. Beneath each reference include the article’s abstract. The completed assignment should have a title page and a reference list with abstracts.

Suggestions for locating qualitative and quantitative research articles from credible sources:

  1. Use a library database such as CINAHL Complete for your search.
  2. Using the advanced search page check the box beside “Research Article” in the “Limit Your Results” section.
  3. When setting up the search you can type your topic in the top box, then add quantitative or qualitative as a search term in one of the lower boxes. Research articles often are described as qualitative or quantitative.

To narrow/broaden your search, remove the words qualitative and quantitative and include words that narrow or broaden your main topic. For example: Diabetes and pediatric and dialysis. To determine what research design was used, review the abstract and the methods section of the article. The author will provide a description of data collection using qualitative or quantitative methods.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.

2. CMIS 320 project

In this assignment you will perform the physical design and implementation using SQL Data Definition Language (DDL) and proceed with populating the Mom and Pop Johnson Video Store database via Data Manipulation Language (DML) SQL commands. 

For each of the steps below you may create a separate SQL script file and SPOOL file or you may want to put the SPOOL output for several steps, from the same SQL script file, in the same file.  Be sure your SPOOL file(s) contains your SQL statements along with the Oracle responses and/or displayed results.  Do NOT submit your SQL script files.  Only submit your output SPOOL files.

Assignment Details

1) Create Oracle database tables using SQL Data Definition Language (DDL) for each table listed in the metadata of Project 2.  You may need to use a combination of DROP TABLE, CREATE TABLE, and ALTER TABLE SQL statements.  Make sure that entity and referential integrity are enforced by declaring a primary key for each table (these may be composite keys) and declaring all appropriate foreign keys. Your CREATE TABLE and ALTER TABLE statements (if desired) must show integrity constraints, as appropriate, for NOT NULL, UNIQUE, PRIMARY KEY, FOREIGN KEY, REFERENCES, and CHECK constraints. Be sure to save your SQL script file used to create these tables with a .sql extension and your output SPOOL file with a .lst or .txt extension.  You should rerun and test your SQL script file until it runs without any errors (this is why you’ll want to include DROP TABLE statements).  Submit your SPOOL file showing that all SQL in your SQL script file worked properly.

2) Populate each of your tables with at least five valid rows of data each and show the SQL INSERT statements as you executed them. Populate other tables in your database, as necessary, to satisfy referential integrity. Save your SQL script file and SPOOL file with the correct extensions.  You should test and rerun your SQL script file until it runs without any errors.  Submit your SPOOL file showing that all SQL in your SQL script file worked properly.

3) Develop an SQL script file to perform the following queries and updates. You should test your SQL script file until it runs without any errors. 

  • Retrieve all of your customers’ names, account numbers, and addresses (street and zip code only), sorted by account number.
  • Retrieve all of the videos rented in the last 30 days and sort in chronological rental date order.  
  • Produce a list of your distributors and all their information sorted in order by company name.
  • Update a customer name to change their maiden name to a married name. You can choose which row to update.  Make sure that you use the primary key column in your WHERE clause to affect only a specific row.  You may want to include a ROLLBACK statement to undo your data update.
  • Delete a customer from the database. You can choose which row to delete. Make sure that you use the primary key column in your WHERE clause to affect only a specific row.  You may want to include a ROLLBACK statement to undo your data deletion. 

Submit your SPOOL file(s) showing that all SQL in your SQL script file worked properly.  Show the actual SQL statements executed and the results the SQL produced below the code by making sure that you have a SET ECHO STATEMENT in your SQL script file(s).

9. Success Factors in Virtual Collaboration

Description

Overview

Write a 7–10 page analysis of how the practices of your own organization (or another organization with which you are familiar) influence the success of its virtual teams.

You will benefit from taking a close look at how your own organization fares in terms of addressing critical success factors for virtual teams, as well as from building an understanding of the skills needed to participate successfully in virtual team collaboration.

Preparation

In their seminal work, Mastering Virtual Teams (2011), Duarte and Snyder identify seven critical success factors in virtual team collaboration:

1. Human resource policies.
2. Training and development.
3. Standard organizational processes.
4. Communication and collaboration technology.
5. Organizational culture.
6. Leadership.
7. Competence (p. 10).

Note: You should be able to find a number of resources that address these critical success factors through your research for this assessment.

To prepare for this assessment, research the seven critical success factors in virtual team collaboration. Consider your own real-world experiences with these factors in the workplace.

Deliverable

This assessment incorporates multiple elements. Be sure to thoroughly address each before submitting the assessment.

Use the seven critical success factors to analyze how the practices of your own organization (or another organization with which you are familiar) influence the success of its virtual teams. Base your analysis on your own experience of being a member of a virtual team within the organization.

Note: If you have not participated in a virtual team, base your analysis on a hypothetical virtual team experience, using what you know of your organization’s practices.

In developing this case, it is helpful to assume that you have been tasked by executive management to conduct an audit of your organization’s ability to support virtual team collaboration. Your audit will include a detailed report in each of the seven critical success factors. Go beyond a description of the “as-is” state for each of these factors in your audit to evaluate and analyze each of the factors to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that the current state presents to the organization in terms of its ability to support virtual team collaboration.

Remember that the executive management of your company is not interested in a report about the criteria themselves—they are not interested in reading about human resource policies in the abstract, for example—but about how the organization measures up to the criteria. Use the success factors to analyze the organization—do not fall into the trap of writing about the criteria. Use the criteria to describe, analyze, and evaluate the organization.

Explain how organizational practices influenced (or might influence) the virtual team’s performance. Address all of the following:

Human resource policies: Do the organization’s career development resources address the needs of virtual team members? Does the organizational reward system recognize the efforts and successes of those who work virtually? Are rewards given only for results, or are they also given for effort? Does the organization actively support work arrangements such as telecommuting?
Training and development: Is there access to technical training for virtual team members? Is there access to training in the area of working across cultures? Is there a program of ongoing training as needed? Is there a system for sharing what has been learned, such as a database?
Standard organizational processes: Are there standard technical processes used throughout the organization (with regard to virtual teams)? Are there standard soft processes used throughout the organization? Does the organization support the ability to adapt processes when necessary? Does the organizational culture support shared ways of doing business across teams?
Communication and collaboration technology: Are there consistent standards for electronic communication and collaboration tools across the organization? Does the organization possess or provide enough resources to purchase and support state-of-the-art electronic communication and collaboration technology? Do all employees (across departments and geographic location) have equal access to electronic communication and collaboration technology?
Organizational culture: Is there trust between the organization, its partners, and other external stakeholders? Are teamwork and collaboration standard practices? Are people from different cultures valued?
Leadership: Do leaders allocate enough resources for the training and technology needed by virtual teams? What level of expectation do leaders set for virtual team performance? Do leaders model exemplary behavior by working across boundaries and using technology effectively?
Competence: Are team leaders experienced with working in virtual environments? Are team members experienced with working in virtual team environments? Are team leaders experienced in working across both organizational and cultural boundaries? Are team members experienced in working across both organizational and cultural boundaries?
Support your analyses with real examples, as well as evidence from your research and readings.

Additional Requirements

Ensure written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message and quality.
Your report should be 7–10 content pages, in addition to a title page and references page.
Use 12-point, Times New Roman.
Use at least three scholarly resources.
Follow APA rules for attributing sources that support your analysis and conclusions. As a reminder related to using APA rules to ensure academic honesty:
When using a direct quote (using exact or nearly exact wording), you must enclose the quoted wording in quotation marks, immediately followed by an in-text citation. The source must then be listed in your references page.
When paraphrasing (using your own words to describe a nonoriginal idea), the paraphrased idea must be immediately followed by an in-text citation and the source must be listed in your references page.

Suggested Resources
The following optional resources are provided to support you in completing the assessment or to provide a helpful context.

14. Facilities Management

As the manager of a resort hotel with 500 guest roomsyou are concerned with your monthly water and sewage bill.   The water company uses the graduated billing schedule listed below. Your operation is currently using 2,500,000 gallons of water per month. It is time to replace your 3.6 gallon per flush toilets and you initially decided to install 1.8 gallons per flush high efficiency toilets.  The toilet salesperson is recommending that you install anultra-high efficiency model that used 0.9 gallons per flush.  The ultra-high efficiency toilets will cost you $250more than the high efficiency toilets per toilet, installed. Based on information your chief engineer found, you estimate that on average every toilet in an occupied room is flushed 10 times per day.  Your average annual occupancy rate is 91.0747%.Assume 30.5 days per month when calculating your monthly water savings.  Based on the information above and the rate scale below,your ultimate goal is to determine if it is more cost effective to install the ultra-high efficiency toilets?

Water rates:  monthly charge of $150.00 per month plus usage charge base on the rates listed below.

            Amount of water used                                    Rate per 1000 gallons

            First 100,000 gallons                           $6.00

            Next 500,000 gallons                          $5.00

            Next 1,000,000 gallons                                   $4.00

            Anything over 1,600,000 gallons                    $2.00

Sewage rates: monthly charge of $200.00 per month plus usage charge based on the total water used.

            Amount of sewage produced =           Total water used minus deduct meter          

Rate per 1000 gallons is $10.00

            Deduct meter shows a monthly average of 125,000 gallons

Water and sewage rates are expected to rise at the same rate,2.0202% per month. The owners of the operation expect a monthly rate of return on their investment of at least 1.0%. Assume that the toilets will last for 30 years. Assume that you will take out a loan for the toilets.  You must pay 10% down make payments at the end of each month until the remainder has been paid off, 72 month.  The nominal annual interest rate for the loan is 3.99%. The equation for converting a nominal annual rate to a monthly rate is:

            imonthly = (1 + iannual)(1/12) -1

The equation to calculate the monthly payment is:

Monthly loan payment = (total cost – down payment) * (imonthly * (1 + imonthly)n) / ((1 + imonthly)n -1)

The equation for the effective monthly interest rate is:

ieffective = ((1 + inominal) / (1 + Inflation)) – 1

The present value equations are:

PV = FV * (1 + i)-n

PV = A * (((1 + ieffective)n – 1) / (ieffective * (1 + ieffective)n))

Give the above information answer the following questions. You must show ALL your work to receive credit.

1.   How much will your water usage drop each month (to the nearest gallon) if you install the ultra-high       efficiency toilets compared to the high efficiency toilets?

      (type your answer here)

2.   If your water usage is for the entire facility is projected to be 2,250,000 gallons if the high efficiency toilets are installed, how much water will be used each month by your entire facility if you install the ultra-high efficiency toilets?

      (type your answer here)

3.   If you install the ultra-high efficiency toilets, what will be your average monthly water and sewage bill (to the nearest dollar) for the entire facility?

28. Philosophical explication and analysis of the first chapter of “Being and Some Philosophers” by Etienne Gilson (refer to instructions for specifications).

Instruction

Prompt: The goal of this essay is to understand and explicate, in your own words, what Gilson has to say in the first chapter. This essay should explain the argument that Gilson makes and comment on the significance of his analysis. In your essay you will be expected to touch on the following three problems:

1. What does Gilson mean by the “existential neutrality” of our conceptual knowledge? How does this frame the problem that Gilson intends to study in “Being and some Philosophers”?

2. What is Parmenides’ answer to the question, “what is being”? How is Plato the heir and continuator of Parmenides?

3. How does plato give rise to the Neo-Platonic “metaphysics of the One”? What problems does such a metaphysics pose for a Christian thinker?

 Specifications:

This essay should be 6-8 pages (double spaced), 12 point in the “Times New Roman” font, with one inch margins, plagiarism free, and proofread. Helpful Tip: Gilson’s book is a philosophical analysis of the ways that various philosophers have understood the meaning of being in the Platonic tradition. His goal is to present not a history of metaphysics, but rather a thinking through of the views of several historical philosophers. 

29. ChE 230Problem Set 3

Optimization

  1. 75 Points. You are to optimize a series of two heat exchangers. The first heat exchanger uses low-pressure steam as a utility. The second heat exchanger uses medium-pressure steam. The third uses high-pressure steam. Together, the heat exchangers must bring a 1.5 kg/s stream of Dowtherm from 25C to 220C. Dowtherm has a heat capacity of 6.0 . Both types of steam enter as a saturated vapor and leave as a saturated liquid (so the utility stream does not change temperature). The following table summarizes the relevant properties:
  lps mps hps
Temp (C) 160 187 254
Cost $13.28/GJ $14.19/GJ $17.70/GJ

Heat exchangers are costed by their area. To determine the area, the following design equation must be used

Where  is the heat duty,  is the overall heat transfer coefficient (,  is the area of the heat exchanger, and  is the log-mean temperature difference.

See the following diagram for more information.

Description: Counter Flow Heat Exchanger LMTD

Heat exchangers are costed according to the following equation

 where A is area in m2.

Since there are two intermediate temperatures, this is a multivariable optimization. You are to optimize this system two ways:

Text Box: T_out=220℃
Text Box: T_2
Text Box: T_1
Text Box: T_in=25℃
Text Box: lps
Text Box: mps
Text Box: hps
  1. Set  , then minimize the EAOC with respect to using golden search. Once you get the optimal, keep that constant, and minimize the EAOC with respect to , again using golden search. Repeat this process once more to see if the optimal temperatures change. This is called a “greedy” optimization. (Greedy because you only look at one variable over all others at a time.) Was this technique effective for this system?
  2. Use a grid search to minimize the EAOC with respect to both temperatures simultaneously. You can then use solver or fmincon to see how closely the solutions match.

30. Self-Defense Essay for Criminal Law

Instruction

Instructions: You have been asked to give a lecture to a group of first-time gun owners about self-defense. Explain when force may be used in self-defense. What about deadly force?

(Introduction) You will then use a minimum of three (3) resources to gather facts about the topic. (Body) Finally, you will report your findings. (Conclusion)

31. Business

When a business is not focused on sustainability, value may be solely determined outside its customers’ interest in green behavior. Suppose a restaurant makes a great-tasting hamburger. Very few of its customers might care whether or not the restaurant engages in green business practices. However, what if there are two restaurants that make equally great-tasting burgers, but one is green while the other is not? Many customers may choose the green business, because the business adds value to its offerings by engaging in sustainable practices. In the case of sustainable products, meaning those products made with an effort to be environmentally and socially responsible, sustainability plays a large role in the customers’ decisions to buy, and tends to be central to the company’s brand.

Instruction

Identify a Saudi business that may not yet be focused on sustainability. Suppose this company decides it would like to deliver products that are more socially, environmentally, and economically superior. In a 4-5 page paper, not including the cover and reference pages, present the company with the total value proposition from a sustainability perspective. In that total value proposition, include a discussion of use values and nonuse values for the business’ green products. How should the business determine WTP, WTA, or consumer surplus? Your required readings this week provide insight which will aid you in your analysis. Make sure to cite and reference any information gleaned from those documents. Additionally, include two current and scholarly sources beyond the course materials and readings to support your analysis. Current sources are those published in the most recent five years. Scholarly sources come from peer’s reviewed journals. Use Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines, citing references as appropriate.

How does your proposed sample size relate to the planned power?

Operational definitions of variables included in your study, which are as follows.


Independent variables (IVs): What they are and how are they measured or defined in the actual research operations of your study? For example, what exactly are the treatments being compared? Give specifics of how they vary in such things as intensity, content, and length and cite supportive references for background information including the effect sizes. This will depend on the number and types of IVs and levels or categories of each.

Dependent variables (DVs): What they are and how are they measured in the actual research operations of your study? How was the measurement technique developed? What are the reliabilities, validities (citing supportive resources), and level of measurement of each measure? Is the resulting score a single item score or a composite score? How do you interpret the score? Are there norms available for interpreting the score? What were the known relationships between and among the measures prior to your data collection? Are there covariates (CVs) you plan to use? If so, how are these measured and what are all the details of these measures (repeat all the questions for the DVs)? This again will depend on the number of DVs. However, sufficient information should be given for each to answer all these questions. This could take several pages.

Procedures: Detail exactly how you plan to develop measurements (if not already developed) and to obtain participants or observations. How are your procedures compatible with ethical and legal standards of research including institutional review board (IRB) expectations? (This could be two pages long if no new development instrument is being developed, but it could be longer if you need to detail such things as these procedures and the establishment of reliability.)

Results: Detail your plans for using statistical analyses to evaluate each of your research questions or hypotheses. How will you assemble and prepare your data for SPSS analysis? Given your statistical analysis(es), how will you do such things as screen data, make any necessary modifications in the database, and compute composite scores, if necessary? How will you proceed with your statistical analysis(es)? Give sample outcome tables (with dummy data) that would be part of what you would be presenting if you were reporting this as actual study results. Depending on the study and the statistical methods used, this could be two to three pages long for each question or hypothesis. However, this is variable.

Discussion: Point out possible limitations or problems with your design and any ideas for ways to improve on them. (This could be, at most, two pages long.)

Appendix: Include copies of your test instruments and/or other supporting information.

Your Final Prospectus Project should be of 10–15 pages (plus Appendix, if included). Present it in Microsoft Word. Name your file R7034_M7_A3_LastName_FirstInitial.doc. Submit it to theSubmissions Area by the due date assigned.

Note: Your facilitator will assign you one research proposal submitted by a classmate for peer review in Module 8.

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.

Assignment 1: SPSS Discriminant Analysis

While regression analysis evaluates the ability of multiple predictor variables to predict values on a single continuous variable, discriminant analysis evaluates the ability of multiple predictor variables to predict classification on a single categorical variable. Discriminant analysis can also be viewed as the reverse of a MANOVA: In MANOVA, the IVs are the groups and the DVs are the predictors. In DA, the IVs are the predictors and the DVs are the groups. (In order to avoid semantic confusion, it’s easier to refer to IVs as the predictors—or discriminating variables—and to DVs as the grouping variables.)

The emphases of MANOVA and DA are different. While MANOVA seeks to find a linear combination of variables that will maximize the test statistic, DA is used to establish the linear combination of dependent variables that maximally discriminates among groups. DA is used to predict membership in naturally occurring groups and to determine if a combination of variables can reliably predict group membership. Several variables are included in a study to see which ones best contribute to the discrimination between groups.

As with factor analysis, discriminant functions are identified through the analysis, but it remains for the researcher to provide a meaningful interpretation and labeling of these.

Use the Discussion Area to ask for help in completing the tasks from your classmates and the facilitator; likewise, offer your suggestions to those asking for help. Participating in this community of scholars will help you clarify processes, solve problems, and gain the immediate reinforcement you need to quickly solidify gains that you’re making in working with multiple variables and advanced statistics.

Open the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) data file created in
M6: Assignment 1. Use the following variables:

Create a Grouping Criterion Variable: Using the continuous data for Number of Previous Hospitalizations, transform this into categorical data by assigning patients to different categorical groups. You will add a new variable to your data file, which indicates which group each case falls into. For example, use the descriptive statistics and frequency information for the number of hospitalizations to decide your cut-offs for scores to define each group and then to assign patients to a group such as Group 1 (lower number of hospitalizations), Group 2 (medium number of hospitalizations), and Group 3 (higher number of hospitalizations) or you may consider quartiles, a median split, and dividing by standard deviation units. Justify your method.

Select five (or more, if justified) continuous variables to use as predictor variables for your analysis. Briefly justify your choices.

Conduct a discriminant analysis of these data. Use the same methods and choices found in the textbook’s sample study. Include tests for homogeneity of group variances.

Save the SPSS file as R7034_M7_A1_LastName_FirstInitial.sav.

Prepare a two- to three-page (plus Appendix for tables) response, which presents a summary report of the following information:

  • State a research question that could be studied using the specified variables for a discriminant analysis.
  • Report the results of prescreens for the missing data, multivariate outliers (Mahalanobis distance), univariate normality, and linearity (bivariate scatter plots). Indicate if any transformations or other decisions are required.
  • In your Appendix, report group descriptive statistics, analysis of variance (ANOVA) summary tables, summary of steps, eigenvalues, Wilks’ lambda table, standardized discriminant function coefficients, cannonical correlation or structure matrix, classification of results, and discriminant function means.
  • Summarize the results of the discriminant analysis, including an interpretation of discriminant functions. Compare the outcomes in terms of the research question.

Create your response in Microsoft Word. Name your file R7034_M7_A1_LastName_FirstInitial.doc. Submit your response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.

PROJECT 1 (30 MARKS)

Project 1 is due at the end of Week 3. It is out of 30 marks.

Required:

Assume the role of a partner in Martine’s consulting business. Martine has asked you to assist

her with completing the analysis and developing a report for Gretel. Prepare a report and

supporting exhibits for Gretel, president of Holzmann Cleaning Services (HCS), to analyze

HCS’s current profitability and provide analysis of the overhead allocations used. It should

include the following:

1. Profit analysis: Prepare a brief high-level overview of the 20X6 results in total based on

Exhibit 1 in the project details document. Your discussion should highlight significant

changes between 20X5 and 20X6 operations, and between 20X6 actual and 20X6

budgeted operations. (8 marks)

2. Costing analysis: Prepare overall comments on the current method HCS uses to allocate its

overhead and provide further analysis on ways in which the company can improve its

costing methods in order to assess and manage its costs. Your analysis should include the

following:

a) Calculate overhead applied rate per direct labour hour (rounded to the nearest dollar),

the overhead applied amount and the resulting over- or underapplied overhead for 20X6

using the traditional costing approach. Base this on the existing method of allocating

service overhead using direct labour hours as the allocation base. The 20X6 actual

wages and benefit rate were the same as budgeted at $13.20 per hour. (2 marks)

b) Use the regression analyses in Exhibit 3 in Project Details to determine the viability of

each cost driver to predict costs for cleaning supplies and transportation. This should

include reasons for choosing or not choosing the regression analyses that were

provided. (3 marks)

c) Use the regression analysis equation chosen in part (b) to separate the variable cost(s)

from the fixed cost(s). Only the fixed cost(s) would be categorized with the other

overhead costs. With the adjusted overhead costs, follow the traditional costing

approach to recalculate the overhead application rate using direct labour hours as the

allocation base. Calculate the over- or underapplied overhead by applying the new

overhead rate. Compare your result to part (a) and provide an analysis of the

differences between the two application rates. (4 marks)

Intermediate Management Accounting Project 1

3 / 3

d) Using activity-based costing and the information in Exhibit 2 in Project Details, prepare

a partial profit analysis for commercial and residential operations. Use wages and

benefits costs (allocated on the same basis as revenue) and all costs from the activitybased data to prepare a partial operating statement that includes all direct/traceable

costs. Compare the segment margins between the commercial and residential

operations. (4 marks) Provide three points that highlight the reasons for the difference

between cost allocations using activity-based costing and traditional costing. (3 marks)

e) Provide overall comments on the results of these analyses in your report. (3 marks)

In addition to the above, award 3 marks for report format and professionalism. Your report

should clearly communicate the important details of the case and effectively persuade the

reader to act on your advice.

Beginning in the 1990s, PWC tied its budget to achieving its strategic plan. Explain how PWC uses the strategic plan to establish the foundation of its budget, using specific examples from Citizens Guide.

What are the top four sources of revenue for PWC? Do you believe the PWC revenue profile is typical for counties in the USA? Explain your answer.

PWC divides its budget into two categories: capital budget and operating budget. What is the difference between the two. What is the primary source of revenue for the capital budget? For the operating budget?

A big portion of the PWC budget entails “transfer to schools.” What does this mean from both the Revenue and Expenditure perspective? Supplement your answer with data from Citizens Guide. Be sure to look at the special character of this budget item on p. 11.

Smart county budgeting requires political sensitivity of elected officials. How is such political sensitivity reflected in the PWC budget process? (Hint: See p. 14.)

Assignment 1: Company Description and SWOT Analysis

Due Week 3 and worth 100 points

In this assignment, you will conduct a SWOT (Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threat) analysis for the type of beverage you have selected, and for your company overall. As you work on the assignment, consider why you have chosen one type of non-alcoholic beverage over another and the reasons for that choice. As you complete your SWOT analysis, be sure to include external factors such as industry / market trends and competition, and internal factors such as your capabilities or abilities to reach certain market segments.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper, in which you:

  1. Create your revised NAB company name and explain its significance. Describe the non-alcoholic beverage you will produce and sell.
  2. Develop your revised company’s Mission Statement and provide a rationale for its components.
    • Hints: Use the Statement of Mission template on pp. 72-73 on the course textbook: Successful Business Plan to aid your development.Click here for help accessing a specific page number in your eBook.
    • Extracting appropriate information from the NAB company portfolio, where applicable. You should fill in other required items in the template using your personal preferences.
  3. Describe the trends in the non-alcoholic beverage industry, especially the specific type of beverage category you have chosen. Justify at least three (3) reasons why you have chosen this type of non-alcoholic beverage.
    • Hints: Research and outline beverage industry trends. Consider the size and growth rate of the industry overall and the specific beverage type you have chosen. Use the worksheet in the course text (p. 88 | Past and Future Growth of Your Industry) to help you project the future growth rate. Consider the use of industry associations and search engines to find reliable, recent data.
  4. Choose one (1) strategic position from the course text (pp. 142–143) that you believe is the best strategic position for your company. Explain the approach you will use to implement this strategic position in order to distinguish your beverage from other non-alcoholic beverages.
  5. Provide an overview of your company’s distribution channels. Explain the manner in which your product will reach end users. Provide a rationale for your chosen method.
    • Hints: For example, will you sell your beverage in grocery stores, restaurants, or sports venues? If so, describe the types of resellers and distributors who will sell to resellers and fulfill their orders. If you are attempting to sell direct-to-consumers, such as online via a monthly subscription, how will you manage warehousing / fulfillment / shipping?
  6. Outline at least three (3) types of risks (including any regulatory risks) that your business faces. Describe your company’s plan to mitigate such risk.
    • Hints: You may refer to the types of risk listed in the course text (pp. 148–149) as well as any risks not listed in the text. Regulation weighs more heavily on beverage and food businesses than many other types of companies, so be certain to consider any regulatory risks your type of beverage faces. For example, what kind of regulation and / or risks are you likely to face if you make health claims about your beverage?
  7. Develop a SWOT analysis for your NAB company using the SWOT matrix worksheet in the course text (p. 153 | SWOT: Strengths / Weaknesses / Opportunities / Threats)
    • Hints: What are your company’s likely strengths? Have you chosen a beverage segment that is growing and lacks an entrenched competitor? Are you in a niche market that has great potential? What are the strengths that you and other team members bring to your company? Do you or other team members have previous experience in the food and beverage industry?
    • Hints: What are your company’s likely weaknesses? Is the competition in your industry segment entrenched? Is your own management team inexperienced? Will it be challenging to actually produce your product and maintain quality?
    • Hints: What are your company’s opportunities? Does your segment have more demand than supply? Have larger corporations stopped serving smaller or niche markets that you could enter? Is a new market emerging because of demographics, immigration, changing tastes?
    • Hints: What are your company’s threats? Is there a clear market leader that will be hard and expensive to displace? Are downward-pricing pressures in the segment making profit margins slim? Are there little or no barriers-to-entry for new competitors; if you have a novel idea that succeeds, can the competition easily enter your market? If you have a global aspect to your company, do factors such as currency fluctuations, political instability, offshoring or outsourcing pose threats?
  8. Format your assignment according to these formatting requirements:
    1. Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.

    3. Cite the resources you have used to complete the exercise. Note: There is no minimum requirement for the number of resources used in the exercise.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Analyze the role of a company mission, vision, and objectives and the impact to business strategy.
  • Describe strategic planning techniques used to formulate alternative strategies designed to achieve stated business goals.

[WLOS: 1, 4] [CLOS: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, please read Chapter 3 in the Turk and Bensel’s Contemporary Environmental Issues textbook (2014).

The purpose of this assignment is twofold: first, to enable you to explore a term (concept, technique, place, etc.) related to this week’s theme of sustaining our agricultural resources; second, to provide your second contribution to a collective project, the Class Sustainable Living Guide. Your work this week, and in the weeks that follow, will be gathered (along with that of your peers) into a master document you will receive a few days after the end of the course. The document will provide everyone with a variety of ideas for how we can all live more sustainably in our homes and communities.

To complete this assignment, MY TERM FROM LIST IS genetically modified crops

  • You will first need to select a term from the list of choices in the Week 2 – Term Selection Forum. Reply to the forum with the term that you would like to research. Do not select a term that a classmate has already chosen. No two students will be researching the same topic.
  • Next, download the Week 2 Assignment Template and replace the guiding text with your own words based upon your online research. Please do not include a cover page. All references, however, should be cited in your work and listed at the end, following APA format expectations.

In the template, you will

  • Define the term thoroughly.
  • Clearly relate the term to the week’s theme.
  • Explain how the term affects living things and the physical world.
  • Relate the term to the challenge of achieving environmental sustainability.
  • Justify if the term represents an obstacle to that goal, or perhaps a technique or technology that might promote it.
  • Suggest two specific actions we can take to promote sustainability in relationship to this term.
  • Provide detailed examples to support your ideas.

  • Episode 7, Making a Murderer

Procedure: Marc Lebeau from the FBI testified in court that EDTA was not detected in the three blood samples he tested. Does this conclusively prove that the blood wasn’t planted?

Behavior: Existence of physical evidence, and the presentation of the forensic analysis of such evidence, are of evidentiary importance, particularly in the absence of corroborating witness testimony. Why would the state not put Brendan Dassey on the stand to testify against Steven Avery?

  • Episode 8, Making a Murderer

Procedure: What value and role do closing arguments have in the courtroom process? Assess the nature and impact of the closing arguments provided by both the state and the defense in this week’s episode.

Behavior: What did Prosecutor Ken Kratz mean when he said, “Reasonable doubt is for innocent people?” At that time, he was speaking directly to the jury. What message/inference was he attempting to get across to the jurors?

Response management money sex education

Question description

Each week, you will be asked to respond to the prompt or prompts in the discussion forum. Your initial post should be 75-150 words in length, and is due on Sunday. By Tuesday, you should respond to two additional posts from your peers.

This week, you will be engaging with the work of other students through Peer Review. In Week 6, you were instructed to submit a copy of your rough draft to this forum. If you have not done so, please submit a copy as an attachment in a new thread with your name as the subject.

For this week’s assignment, you’ll need to read and respond to at least two other students’ essays and provide them feedback. These responses must include the Peer Review rubric. Use the rubric to provide constructive feedback, incorporating specific, positive remarks as well as helpful suggestions so your peer can see you genuinely evaluated their rough draft.

Your peer reviews should be posted as a response to that student’s thread and should be submitted as an attached word document.

Additional Instructions:

  • Select at least one essay which has only one or no responses so everyone has a chance to receive feedback.
  • Focus primarily on content, not grammar, spelling, punctuation, or format. If you point out errors, give examples from the paper so the writer knows where to look.

Here is a link to the Peer Review Rubric to utilize in your feedback: Peer Review Rubric

Provide an overall conclusion and impression of your peer’s paper. What did your peer do right? What could they improve? This should include recommendations and constructive comments to help your peer improve.

This week we will be undergoing the Peer Review process. This process is important because it allows us to gain insight from other perspectives (as well as allow us to give insight). For this week’s discussion, your initial post will consist of your Week 6 Rough draft (which you should submit in Week 6 after you’ve submitted your rough draft to your instructor). You will need to respond to at least two of your fellow student’s rough drafts as well. There are two key things to remember when doing this:

First, your replies should be submitted as attached Word documents. Try not to give one sentence answers, but instead provide positive feedback as well as constructive criticism. Remember that the idea is to support your classmates’ and let them know what they are doing well and what could be improved (but make sure to avoid negativity). Also, focus on the larger issues with the essay (content, structure, organization, use of sources, arguments, thesis, etc.) rather than smaller issues like editing or proofreading.

Second, please make sure to include a copy of the rubric for each student in your response (filled out how you might grade that student’s essay as it is now). This should be included in your response.

A few other tips:

  • Submit your paper by Sunday. Respond to two of your classmates’ papers by Tuesday.
  • Select at least one essay which has only one or no responses so everyone has a chance to receive feedback.
  • You are not required to point out grammar, spelling, and formatting issues, but, if you do, give examples from the paper. Focus on content first.
  • If you are comfortable using the Comments feature in Word, please download the paper, make comments, and upload the paper with your corrections.

Weather Disasters Hurricane Mitch tornadoes damages

Option #2: Weather Disasters

Like earthquake and volcano eruptions, major hurricanes and tornadoes have occurred long before there were humans on Earth. Choose one hurricane or tornado that significantly impacted humans and report on it. Be sure to cover how it affected the Earth, damages and death tolls, economic impact and any permanent consequences.

Your paper should meet the following requirements:

  • 3-4 pages in length (does not include title and reference page)
  • 1-2 outside sources

Research Paper

 (choose any one)

Please develop a thesis regarding any of these issues (or an issue that you have chosen). Your paper should be about demonstrating your thesis in an organized and persuasive manner, using outside sources and your own reasoning.

For example, if your topic is global warming, examples of theses might be:

– Global warming is a serious threat to our environment and governments must take immediate and severe measures to decrease its rate

OR

– Global warming has not been proven to have been caused by anthropogenic activities and so government should not risk hurting their economies to solve a problem that we do not know exists.

In other words, it does not matter which side of a debate you take. You may take any side you like. But whichever side you take, your paper should be focused on persuading the reader that you are correct.

While including some background information is important and necessary, is not necessary to educate the reader from scratch. You may assume that your reader has a basic understanding of the underlying issue and may plan and base your persuasive writing on this assumption.

Important: This is a research paper. You must cite at least three outside sources and should not make any assertion of fact in your essay unless it is supported by at least one outside reliable source. Citations should be made in correct MLA format.

Your essay should be between 500 and 1,000 words long (roughly 2-4 pages)

Human Resource Manager Job Vacancy Description role responsabilities

Question description

The primary function of a job description is to outline the role and responsibilities of a job. When constructing a job description, the following areas should be considered:

  • Daily tasks,
  • Knowledge base required,
  • Skills and Abilities,
  • Educational Requirements.

For this module assignment, in a minimum of 3 pages, please do the following:

  • Create an original job description addressing each of the areas mentioned above for a Human Resource Manager. You can find a basic template here.
  • Provide two or more ways that you would advertise or recruit someone for that position. Discuss why you selected these particular methods.
  • Also, include a description of at least two methods of assessment used when recruiting qualified candidates and why these two assessment methods would be most appropriate.
  • Make sure to include an APA formatted title page and reference page to document the source for the template and any additional sources that you may have used for your research.

Conditioning

Question description

DIRECTIONS

Complete the following:

  1. Conditioning treatment of phobias. Find a peer-reviewed research study published within the last eight years that addresses the theory or treatment of phobias. Summarize the methods used in the research and the conclusions made by the researchers. Describe the key aspects of the research that reflect behaviorist principles.
  2. Conditioning related to personal behavior. Describe how conditioning explains changes in your own behavior that you have observed at work or at home. Provide three examples. (If your examples are from personal experience, your descriptions may be in first person.) Be sure to relate theory and research to your examples. For example, you might describe how behavioral theory would explain your learning process in that situation. Cite scholarly articles to support your conclusions.
  3. Relevance of conditioning today. Analyze how behaviorism is still relevant today. What are the limits of behaviorism? Are there processes that it does not explain well? For example, behaviorists believed that babies and children learned language through rewards and punishments, but today we know that language learning is a much more complex process. The behaviorist approach was not sufficient to explain the totality of language learning.

Strive to be as concise as possible and limit the length of your completed assignment to 5–6 pages of content

Paradigms and Approaches

Question description

1.Goldstein presents several paradigms and approaches, as well as their own views of thinking. Compare two of the following perspectives, describing first the two approaches you selected.

Next, note the apparent similarities in the approaches (for example, did they emerge at the same time? Are there similar research methods used?) and note their differences. Did one approach influence the other?

  • William James’s approach.
  • Behaviorism.
  • Gestalt psychology.
  • Wilhelm Wundt approach.
  • The cognitive approach

2.In his article “The Origins of Cognitive Thought,” B. F. Skinner derides the rise of cognitive psychology and cognitive science in the 1950s:

The battle cry of the cognitive revolution is “Mind is back!” A “great new science of mind” is born. Behaviorism nearly destroyed our concern for it, but behaviorism has been overthrown, and we can take up again where philosophers and early psychologists left off (p. 17).

For this discussion, respond to the following:

  • Have advances in cognitive psychology and cognitive science truly overthrown behaviorism?
  • What applications for behaviorism exist today?
  • What evidence do you have to support your position

3.Consider the following scenario: You have a five-year-old daughter who suddenly refuses to go to bed on time. She comes up with the classic excuses: needs a story, a song, a kiss, a glass of water, to use the bathroom. Then, when all appeals are exhausted, she moves into the toughest thing for a parent to defend against: monsters!

You suspect that she is not really frightened and that this is just another delay tactic. You even give her a water pistol to shoot the monsters, but this just results in damp posters on her walls. You need to find a way to get your child to go to bed on time.

For this discussion draw on behaviorist principles learned in your text and other readings to create a plan for modifying your child’s behavior. Name specific behavioral principles (positive reinforcement, schedules of reinforcement, and so on), and link your action plan to the specific principles.

4.Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. For this discussion, complete the following:

  • Describe the differences between top-down and bottom-up theories of perception.
  • Test your perceptual patterns to determine whether you think synesthesia is based more on low-level or higher level cognitive processes, then discuss. You will need the resources on synesthesia for this part of the discussion.
  • Name at least one famous person who is reported to have synesthesia and describe the type of synesthesia he or she experiences

5.For this discussion consider: Should cognitive performance-enhancing drugs such as Ritalin, Adderall, and Concerta be banned?

This question has created a firestorm of debate across college campuses in America over many years. In this discussion you will take a position on whether or not cognitive performance-enhancing drugs should be banned and find a journal article that supports your side:

  • Describe at least one of the main arguments in the article and explain the supporting evidence the authors of the article use to support their argument.
  • Describe the article’s conclusions.
  • Explain the implications of the findings and how they support the position you have taken in the debate.

REALIZING THE NEED TO ENGAGE A TUTOR

Turning to a tutor for help for your academic work is often related to the fact that your grades are probably not doing so well. However, there are other reasons as to why you need to engage a tutor during your time as a student. We have heard different reasons as to why students engage a tutor in their studies and we want to create a list of those that really stood out.

  1. Get that Extra Information- Education related content is quite a wide scope for one person to claim that they know everything they need to know in a certain subject. You need to engage a tutor for extra information that could not be in your reach or for new information that you could be unaware of while you study. Tutors are dedicated to always discovering new sources of information as well as new methods to approach certain academic problems.
  2. Time Constraints- Most students are often taking up a job as they study so as to get through their studies. Sometimes your working hours could clash with the class timetable which affects the rate at which you attend classes in a given semester. Engaging a tutor becomes important at this point so that they can take you through the content that you missed in a personalized and detailed manner. The good thing about this is that it can be done at your convenience as the tutor is particularly dedicated to you.
  3. Examination Preparation. Tutors are very efficient in helping students prepare for their exams. This could be through sharing material and information that will complement your class notes. An experienced tutor possesses skills that are able to help you predict some of the questions you might encounter and they will provide you with detailed explanations on how to handle the questions.
  4. Fatigue- Students are often overwhelmed by their studies and they lack the motivation to study. By engaging a tutor, you can have a helping hand that will simplify the content for you and point out the most relevant areas you need to focus on. This will make it easier for you to study and provide you with the skills to study better through making interesting summary notes and incorporating new learning methods.
  5. One-on-One Experiences- Lecturers are limited in providing one-on-one experiences due to the many number of students they have to teach in a particular subject. Therefore, with an experienced tutor by your side, you can ask the difficult questions, have a detailed and clear explanation for concepts you did not understand during the lesson and even get to know creative ways to approach assignments.

So, the next time you consider engaging a tutor in your studies, it does not necessarily mean that you are weak student, you just might need someone to add a little more value to what you already know.
