Module 1: Written Assignment

In my personal experience, studying art throughout history and examining the context for which a work has been created can open a world of deeper understanding towards certain historical periods or events.  For this discussion forum, I would like you to select an artwork from your text that exemplifies a specific historical period or event.  Make sure to include the title of the artwork, as well as the artist’s name and the page it is located on, in the text (Example: “Mona Lisa,” by Leonardo Da Vinci, p.21).  Explain what historical period or event your selected artwork reflects and how it has enriched your understanding.  

Your post should be at least one paragraph (at least five well thought out sentences).

Module 2: Written Assignment Ch. 1.1-1.5

Select an artwork from the text to analyze in terms of identifying the Elements of Art.  Determine what is the most prevalent element utilized within the composition and discuss how the artist employed this element.  As well, discuss what other elements are present within the artwork.  Make sure to utilize the relevant terminology presented within the chapter in your discussion (Example: If discussing lines, think about the kind of lines that are being used).  Make sure to include the title of the artwork, as well as the artist’s name (Example: “Mona Lisa,” by Leonardo Da Vinci, p.21).  

Your post should be at least one paragraph (at least five well thought out sentences).

Module 3: Written Assignment Ch. 1.6-1.10

*Do not use the same artwork that you selected for the Module 2 

** Make sure you are discussing both the Elements of Art and the Principles of Design in this post.

After reviewing the videos listed above, select two artists that made the biggest impression on you.  What was it about each of these artists that either drew you to their work or maybe left you feeling not pleased, aesthetically?  When viewing an artwork, we usually are just experiencing the finished product that is the result of a long process.  How did hearing about and seeing the process of creating the artwork change your opinion?  

Your post should be at least two paragraphs (at least five sentences each).  One paragraph for each artist that you have selected.[supanova_question]

Module 14 Instructions:

Read the following case study and answer the reflective questions. Please provide rationales for your answers. Make sure to provide citations/references for your answers in APA format.

CASE STUDY:

Caregiver Role Strain: Ms. Sandra A. Sandra, a 47-year-old divorced woman, received a diagnosis of stage 3 ovarian cancer 4 years ago, for which she had a total hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo- oophorectomy, omentectomy, lymphadenectomy, and tumor debulking followed by chemotherapy, consisting of cisplatin (Platinol), paclitaxel (Taxol), and doxorubicin (Adriamycin). She did well for 2 years and then moved back to her hometown near her family and underwent three more rounds of second line chemotherapy. She accepted a less stressful job, bought a house, renewed old friendships, and became more involved with her two sisters and their families. Sandra developed several complications, including metastasis to the lungs. Then she could no longer work, drive, or care for herself. She had been told by her oncologist that there was nothing else that could be done and that she should consider entering a hospice. She met her attorney and prepared an advance directive and completed her will. She decided to have hospice care at home and, with the help of her family, set up her first floor as a living and sleeping area. She was cared for by family members around the clock for approximately 3 days. Sandra observed that she was tiring everyone out so much that they could not really enjoy each other’s company. At this time, she contacted the Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) to seek assistance. Her plan was to try to enjoy her family and friend’s visits. After assessment, the VNA nurse prioritized her problems to include fatigue and caregiver role strain. Other potential problem areas that may need to be incorporated into the care plan include anticipatory grieving and impaired comfort.

Reflective Questions

1. What are some of the stresses on Sandra’s middle-aged sisters and their families?

2. What resources are available to manage these stresses and support the sisters while caring for their dying sister Sandra?

3. Describe Sandra’s feelings about dependency and loss of autonomy because she is unable to do her own activities of daily living any longer[supanova_question]

Avoid PLAGIARISM

Step-1.

Module 1—Assignment

Analyzing Deviance through a Positivist and Constructionist Lens

In this exercise, you will observe the behavior of people in a public setting, either through observation in the ‘real world’ or through the links to public street level cameras that have been provided on Canvas. Please observe for at least half an hour.

On EarthCam, you can observe hundreds of cameras on public streets from around the world. Not all of them are ‘street level’, but many of them are. Here are a couple of good feeds, but there are plenty to choose from on the site. Choose whichever feed you would like.

Your job is to identify an act of deviance and discuss which category it falls in (i.e.—violation of folkway, more or law) You will then discuss how a positivist and a relativist would understand and study this behavior.

https://www.earthcam.com/usa/illinois/chicago/wrigleyville/?cam=wrigleyville

Your job is to identify an act of deviance and discuss which category it falls in (i.e.—violation of folkway, more or law). You will then discuss how a positivist and a relativist would understand and study this behavior.

Using the categories that positivists might use to classify deviance, please try to find behaviors that violate some norm—be it a ‘folkway’, ‘more’ or ‘law’. Here are some examples you might see in each of the categories:

Folkways— An individual picking their nose while waiting for their ride; a person not reciprocating a ‘hello’ on the street; a person standing ‘too close’ to others at a bus stop; a person monopolizing an entire bench at a busy park etc.

More—Somebody wearing a T-shirt with offensive words; the use of profanity; smoking or vaping by children etc.

Laws—jaywalking; smoking by an entryway in Tacoma; riding a bike or scooter on the sidewalk etc.

After making your observations, please answer the following four questions:

Please tell us about one act of deviance that you observed. Describe it briefly, then tell us what category (i.e. folkway, more or law) it fell in and why that is so. (One paragraph-100 words or more)

Drawing on the information in the first chapter of the book, please discuss how a positivist would study the deviant behavior that you observed. (One paragraph-100 words or more)

Drawing on the discussion of relativist-type theory in the text, please discuss how a relativist/social constructionist might study the deviant behavior that you observed. How might they critique a positivist approach to studying deviant behavior? (One paragraph-100 words or more)

Thinking like a relativist/social constructionist, can you think of an alternative setting, context or point in time where the deviant behavior you observed would actually be ‘normal’? (One paragraph-100 words or more)

Step-2

Please share your experiences and feelings on this highly controversial topic: returning shopping carts!

For this discussion board, after reading the article below, if you wouldn’t mind sharing your own behaviors and views when it comes to shopping cart return, that might be fun. You don’t have to answer all of the questions below, but here are some things that might get us talking.

1-Do you always return the carts to their proper spot? (One paragraph-75 words or more)

2-Or are there times when this norm doesn’t apply to you (or others)? (One paragraph-75 words or more)

3-Perhaps your behavior has changed over time or differs from store to store. Why the change? (One paragraph-50 words or more)

4-Or is there a moment around shopping cart return that particularly stands out for you– either your own behavior or that of another individual? (One paragraph-50 words or more)

5-Or. perhaps you’d like to share an observation that you see this week. (One paragraph-50 words or more)

https://getpocket.com/explore/item/why-don-t-people-return-their-shopping-carts?utm_source=pocket-newtab

Your discussion should be important with a comprehensive and detailed answer.

Your discussion should be of 700 words. It does not include the name of the student, the university, the professor, or the name of the class.

Name: __________________________________________

Firefighting Assignment

You receive a call from your manager to take on a short term assignment in Pretoria, South Africa on a program that is having difficulties. You have been asked to work with the program manager, systems engineer, key staff members, and the customer to determine and document a path forward. Here are some of the facts about the program and the circumstances:

The contract was awarded by the South African telecommunications company about six months earlier. The period of performance is approximately one year.

The scope of the project is to develop and install a state-of-the-art land line telecommunications system. Your company is responsible for developing and building the system; the customer is responsible for providing distribution to the user and the interface specifications to your system.

This is a fixed price, developmental contract.

Both parties (buyer and seller) have the right to terminate the contract (with legal ramifications) if the terms of the contract are not met by the other party.

The contract requirements are 100 pages long, conflicting, and in many cases unclear.

Your company’s position is that the customer is not fulfilling their obligations on the contract to make decisions that affect the design of the new system.

A colleague, who has been working in-country on the project warns you that an employee was stabbed in front of the office the week before, and a fellow colleague was mugged a few weeks before that on her way home.

The office hours are strictly 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for security reasons. You will be escorted at all times when you are outside the office or outside the hotel where you will be staying. You know that, given the assignment, you will have to work many long hours, and will need to reach out to many of the team members. You have two weeks to come up with the plan.

The subsidiary of your company responsible for the program has a 40 person team on-site in Pretoria. Recruiting key people to work on this program was very difficult. Several key people have already resigned and have not been replaced.

You agree to take on the assignment, select two trusted experts from your team to join you, and head off to South Africa.

What is your plan for dealing with the disagreement between the two parties? [Consider the tools we discussed in class to resolve/clarify the issues.]

It seems like this project is risky considering the distance to travel, the safety of the workers and the difficulty of the project. Considering that it is also a fixed price, I believe that the disagreement between the two parties should lead to a void of the contract because the planning, scheduling and overall efficiency would be hard to manage due to the lack of organization from the client. Although this could be a great business opportunity for both parties, there are too many “ifs” that are presented in regards to the disagreement between both parties. It seems as if the project would be delayed and ran over schedule, which in turn could result in an increase of overall budget spending which will negatively affect the project success.

What is your plan for dealing with the security issues?

My plan for dealing with the security issues would be to confront and talk about how it would affect the project plan. These security issues are big and need to be resolved due to the impact of damage. A stabbing is no joke and could play a factor in the decision to keep the project going, delay the project and void the contract and cancel the project. The right way to go about this would be to plan accordingly and have the schedule revolve around the best >me for people to work. Though doing such thing, it can affect many factors that determine the safety of the people who are contracted to go work at the location.[supanova_question]

Assignment Topics:

Assignment 1: Assume that you have been hired by a small veterinary practice to help them prepare a contingency planning document. The practice has a small LAN with four computers and Internet access. Prepare a list of threat categories and the associated business impact for each. Identify preventive measures for each type of threat category. Include at least one major disaster in the plan.

Assignment 2: Assume that you have been tasked by your employer to develop an incident response plan. Create a list of stakeholders for the IR planning committee. For each type of stakeholder, provide the reasons for inclusion and the unique aspects or vision that you believe each of these stakeholders will bring to the committee.

Assignment 3: Discuss the challenges that incident handlers face in identifying incidents when resources have been moved to a cloud environment.

Assignment 4: Each student will locate and review an article that discusses how a company went through the recovery process after a disaster. The article should not be older than 5 years old. The review of the article should be between 400-to-550 words and should summarize the article content along with your review of how the recovery process went. Please include how it applies to topics for the week, and why you found it interesting.

Assignment 5: Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each type of testing. When is each type of testing appropriate? Are there situations that preclude the use of a particular type of testing?

Assignment 6: A simulated disaster and comprehensive recovery test may involve many of an organization’s key personnel for several days: is this a reasonable burden to place on a busy, competitive company? How would you argue against the inevitable tendency to shortcut the procedure?

Assignment 7: We develop good DR plans and some of those plans will include a remote recovery site (hot or cold). How do we ensure that the remote site is protected like we would the main location? Discuss the challenges of maintaining information security at a remote recovery location.

Research Paper Topics:

Research Paper 1: Select a major organization that was located with a major natural disaster area, such as the Hurricane Katrina disaster area.  Research their experiences and prepare a report detailing the unexpected challenges the organization encountered in returning their operations to normal. Give suggestions on what might be added to the organization’s contingency plan to mitigate those unexpected challenges. 

Research Paper 2: Submit a report that discusses the techniques used by malware developers to disguise their code and prevent it from being analyzed. Give suggestions on how these techniques should be classified and ranked in the disaster recovery documentation and recovery plan

Research Paper 3: When law enforcement becomes involved, the need may arise to freeze systems as part of the evidence. There is also the likelihood that the incident will become known publicly. Do you think these issues play a significant part in the decision to involve law enforcement? Why or why not? Can you name some situations in which you believe that large organizations have decided not to involve law enforcement?

Research Paper 4: Pick an industry/company to focus on for this assignment. Based upon the given information you can find on the company and any past issues/breaches the company has gone through, create Crisis Management Plan

Research Paper 5: What kind of user training should be conducted to deal with the issue of noise (electrical). How do you strike a balance between being overwhelmed with false positives and the danger of ignoring true incidents? What effects would false positives have on an organization?

Using the file “COVID Vaccination Data for Final Exam” perform the following steps in Excel:
Use the “FIPS” field to link in all information from the Geo tab
Create 2 calculated fields-
Metro Flag- If “Metro_status” is Metro or “Recip_state” is Virginia then “Yes” else “No”
High Vaccine Flag- If “Series_Complete_Pop_Pct” is greater than 50 and “Administered_Dose1_Pop_Pct” is greater than 50 then “Yes”, else “No”
Save as Excel file
Now perform the following steps in Tableau
Import the Excel file you just worked with
Import Vaccine Hesitancy Data 1 and Vaccine Hesitancy Data 2 data files and union them together
Pull in all fields from the Vaccine Hesitancy Union File into your uploaded Excel work file via linkage (remember to make sure your data types match for your linkage and how to treat fields as text within a formula)
Filter your data set to just reflect the following states: Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, West Virginia, Tennessee and Washington DC
Create the calculated field “State Nickname” which assigns a nickname of your choice to each of the state codes for the states listed in the previous step
Create a symbol map where the volume/sum of “Administered Dose1 Recip” dictates size, the average “Completeness Pct” determines color and add dates by week as pages
Create a line chart that plots “Series Complete Yes” by Month over time , breakout line color by state and add an average line with a 95% confidence interval
Create a bubble chart where each bubble is a value of the field “SVI Category” and size is driven by the volume of the field “Administered Dose 1 Recip”. Add the bubble chart as tooltip to your heatmap
Finally create a dashboard that includes both visualizations, links them together, includes a filter for state, and add a highlight action that is triggered by hovering
Send me both your Tableau file as a packaged workbook as well as the Excel file that you uploaded to Excel

So, for this assignment, I ask you to think about how one example of “religious” practice fits into the broader cosmology outlined in the beginning of the chapter. Here’s how to do this:
Show the overall cosmology of indigenous religions in Africa. You can work with one or both of the following definitions of cosmology:Brodd defines this cosmology as: “We will look particularly closely at beliefs about creation and human origins, the interrelationship of humanity and other elements of the world, and the nature of sacred language” (pp34-35).
In my lecture PowerPoints, I define cosmology as who and what a religio-culture’s world is filled with and how humans in that religio-culture relate with everything and everyone in that universe.
If you choose to draw pictures, make sure to label the parts of this cosmology. And make sure the file format is one that the Canvas will accept. Apple users, if the file type you need is not here, tell me what to add.

Then, show how one detail from one ethno-religio group fits and works within this cosmology. Here’s how to do this:
Choose a detail from anywhere in the chapter. This can be a structure or building, a ritual, a ritual object, an organization, etc…
Show that detail within your cosmological map and label the name of the detail and the religio-ethnic community where it is embedded (woven into, part of).
Label parts of this detail to show how this detail (building, ritual, object, organization, etc…) connects people within this religio-culture to other parts of their cosmological world.

Personal Development Plan

Development objectives

The objectives of my personal development plans include;

Acquiring time management skills at work

Acquiring emotional intelligence

Improving my mental toughness.

How to acquire skills

To acquire time management skills, I will start by prioritizing tasks that are urgent and important at work. These tasks will be completed before any other tasks are assigned. In addition, I will have to develop an overall understanding of my work job and the period each task takes. Next, I will start planning by analyzing tasks and developing a schedule for their completion. Next, I will learn to recognize stress levels and make necessary accommodation in order to keep them low. Moreover, I will set defined goals throughout my work, including accomplishing a certain task. The goals will be realistic and optimal to be a good source of encouragement each day I show up for work. Finally, I will develop my goals and plans in a written and verbal form.

To acquire emotional intelligence at work, I will focus on self-awareness. I will focus on knowing and recognizing my emotions and how they affect my behaviour and thoughts. Also, I will highlight my weaknesses and strengths while at work. Moreover, I will learn how to control impulse feeling and behaviours and mastery of emotions. I will keep a journal on emotion and practice meditation to master emotion. Moreover, I will ask a coworker to describe me on a weekly basis to see how much I can master myself. Finally, to acquire emotional intelligence, I will focus on social awareness and relationship management with other employees. I will inspire others, compliment them and communicate clearly.

To acquire mental toughness, I will develop several habits that will ensure I become resilient and follow my schedule to the latter. The first habit will be to focus on one thing at a time. When I am with my workmates, I will be listening more to what they say. Moreover, I will set aside time for body movements, including physical exercise. Finally, I will focus on the daily mindfulness break and access how I feel. The mindfulness break will also incorporate mediation and visualization of my goals.

A Timeline for Acquisition

The time for the acquisition will be as follows.

Category

Reminder

I will set a reminder that will give be based on monthly alerts. Reminders will be set using my smartwatch as well as my smartphone. For meditation and physical activities, I will have a schedule and set daily reminders. Assessment reminders will be done both on a weekly as well as monthly basis. The radar chart will be updated as per the schedule. Employer assessment will be done on weekly basis. The reminder will be set on my smartwatch.

Standards and Measures for Assessing Improvement.

I intend to use an assessment instrument to determine the level of success and improvement. To determine whether or not there has been progressing, I will utilize a radar chart. My goals will be scored using best-practice data produced from a comparison of best-in-class results, which will make the more useful assessments even more useful. As the organization advances down a path of continuous improvement and ever closer to best-in-class performance, subsequent assessment scores will likewise increase, offering a measure of success. Finally, I shall request that my employer access me in accordance with the objectives.[supanova_question]

Physics A Unit 6 Momentum Lab Introduction: The Law of Conservation of

Physics A Unit 6 Momentum Lab

Introduction:

The Law of Conservation of Momentum states: For a collision occurring between 2 objects in an isolated system, the total momentum of the two objects before the collision is equal to the total momentum of the two objects after the collision. That is, the momentum lost by object 1 is equal to the momentum gained by object 2.

The Law of Conservation of Momentum in equation form:

Elastic Collisions

Inelastic Collisions

Hypothesis: Create hypotheses of what you think the results of this experiment will be. Support your hypotheses with your knowledge of momentum.

How will the momentum of the balls after the collision compare to the momentum before the collision?

What differences can you expect between inelastic and elastic collisions?

Procedure:

Open this link to access the simulation: https://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulations/collision-lab Click “Play” and then choose “Intro”

On the screen you should see a pink and a blue ball. Below the balls is a “Mass” box. Click the “More Data” button above this box and you will be able to change the mass, velocity, and position of each ball.

To the right you will see checkboxes that allow you to control the values that are visible and the slider allows you to control the elasticity of the collision. Check Velocity, Momentum, Change in Momentum, and Value. Also, click on the green plus sign by “Momenta Diagram”.

PART ONE: Elastic Collisions

Make sure the “Elasticity” slider is set to 100% ( on the right side). Note that the values show best when the simulation screen is maximized.

In the “More Data” section, start with the following settings: m1 = 0.5 kg, v1,i = 0.2 m/s, m2= 0.5 kg, and v2,i = 0 m/s. Record these values in your data table.

Click the blue “Play” button. Observe the collision and record the balls’ final velocities in your data table. (Note that the simulation continues to run off the screen; you can use 10 seconds as the time at which you record data. The “Back” and “Step” buttons allow you to view a precise time.) The Data Tables are set up for you and can be found in the DATA & ANALYSIS section of this lab sheet.

Press the “Restart” button; the blue button below the box with the balls in it. Note that the position of blue ball 1 returns to -1.00m and pink ball 2 returns to 1.00m, but the velocity and mass remain at what you set them at the outset of that trial.

Change the mass and velocities of the balls to those given within the table by typing in a number in one of the boxes in the column labeled “Mass” and “Velocity”. Repeat the experiments, and record the final velocities in the table.

Notice that positive movement is to the right and negative movement is to the left.

PART TWO: INELASTIC COLLISIONS

Slide the “Elasticity” slider, in the box on the right side, all the way to Inelastic on the left so that Elasticity is 0%. Make sure that Velocity Vectors and Show Values in the box are still checked. Set the initial values to: m1 = 0.5 kg, v1,i = 0.2 m/s, m2= 0.5 kg, and v2,i = 0 m/s. Record these values in your second data table which can be found in the DATA & ANALYSIS section of this lab sheet.

Repeat the trials you did in Part One but for inelastic conditions. Record the values of vf in your second data table.

CONCLUSIONS:

1. Drawing Conclusions: In this situation, conservation of velocity would mean that the total velocity for both balls is the same after the collision as it was before the collision. Is velocity conserved in elastic conditions? Is it conserved in inelastic conditions? Support your answer with data from your experiment.

2. Drawing conclusions: Based on your data, is momentum conserved in elastic conditions? Support your answer with data from the experiment.

3. Drawing Conclusions: Based on your data, is momentum conserved in inelastic conditions? Support your answer with data from the experiment.

4. Making Predictions: How did the results from your data compare with your hypotheses?

5. Evaluating Methods: How would performing this experiment in a hands-on laboratory affect the data you collected? What sources of error would you expect in real-life conditions that you could neglect in a virtual setting?[supanova_question]

Green Chemistry: Solvent and Catalyst Free Organic Reactions Abstract: The use of

Green Chemistry: Solvent and Catalyst Free Organic Reactions

Abstract:

The use of solvents and catalysts in organic reactions often does not follow the principles of green chemistry. By eliminating the use of solvents and catalysts, creating “neat” organic reactions, hazards and pollution can be avoided. Modern chemistry has found many ways to perform solventless and catalyst free reactions, including the use of microwaves, ultrasound waves, and pressure. 

Introduction:

The goal of green chemistry is to reduce the production or use of hazardous substances in chemical applications. Because the use of hazardous substances can have drastic consequences, measures are put into place to responsibly conduct chemical processes with little to no pollution or risk. One way that reactions are made “greener” is to reduce the use of solvents and catalysts. Catalysts are necessary for many reactions to lower the activation energy and allow a non-spontaneous reaction to proceed quicker or at a lower temperature. However, catalysts themselves are not consumed in the reaction, which can make them a volatile byproduct. Additionally, many organic solvents are dangerous to the environment. The goal of a solvent is to facilitate interaction between reagents in a homogenous setting, as well as impact the rate of reaction and the thermodynamic constrictions of the reaction. A solvent can also influence the yield of the reaction and the presence of byproducts. Like catalysts, solvents are usually not consumed in the reaction and can therefore be eliminated without drastic effect on the desired product. Eliminating solvents from reactions is difficult, but has been found possible via certain methods. By conducting solventless and catalyst-free reactions, hazardous substances are avoided, and green chemistry is assured. 

One of the most popular ways reactions are solvent and catalyst-free is through the use of microwaves. Additionally, ultrasound waves and pressure reduction have been used.

Revenge in Hamlet play

The theme of revenge dominates the Hamlet play with two men pursuing revenge for the murder of their fathers. Laertes is on a mission to kill Hamlet who killed his father, Polonius, Fortinbras wants to revenge for his father’s death as well as Hamlet. This makes the play, as Tanya Pollard states, a double revenge play (70). This pursuit of revenge has led to more deaths including the death of Hamlet who had begun the revenge plots. My research, therefore, focuses on studying the theme of revenge as the dominant and the driving of Hamlet in the play. I will discuss this theme by focusing on three plots of revenge evident in the play: Fortinbras’ revenge for the slain of his father, Hamlet’s revenge for his father’s death, and Laertes’ revenge for his father’s death.

Fortinbras’ desire for revenge was led by his aspiration of getting the crown. Unlike Hamlet, Fortinbras is a man of action because he does not delay getting revenge and he travelled miles away to revenge against Denmark. Fortinbras managed to revenge for his father’s murder and also survived, unlike both Laertes and Hamlet who died after getting their revenge. His revenge can be said to have been the most successful among the three men pursuing revenge. This is because Fortinbras finally got the revenge he wanted and got back his father’s land.  

Fortinbras can be described as an open and bold person. This is because he made his revenge plans clear to everyone. Fortinbras is also a loyal person because, despite the fact that his father’s land was small, he was committed to obtaining it back in his revenge plans. However, Fortinbras’ revenge seemed immoral and not worthy because his father was not unlawfully murdered yet he wanted revenge for that. He was only fighting for glory and prestige and for the sake of his father. 

Hamlet is encouraged by his fathers’ ghost to take revenge which resulted in tragedy. This is because although he got the revenge he wanted, he never survived. Hamlet is possessed by revenge and emotions throughout the play. He deeply grieved for his father and decided that the best plan to get justice for his fathers’ murder was through seeking revenge. However, Hamlet takes a different path from that of Laertes and Fortinbras. He decides to fake madness as a way of helping him get the revenge he wanted. His acts of madness became more real and his family and friends don’t pay attention to his insane actions and words. This madness gave him the freedom to do anything that he wanted to do for revenge. Polka states that Hamlet is a person who thinks deep before taking action: faking insanity was a plan to help him on how to deal with his revenge (483).

However, Hamlet did not act immediately but delayed to get evidence that Claudius was responsible for his fathers’ death. His delay to revenge causes unwanted deaths including the death of Laertes, Polonius, Gertrude, Ophelia, Guildenstern, and Rosencrantz. This unplanned tragedy might have been a result of Hamlet’s emotions of taking revenge. Hamlet succeeded in revenge for his father’s death but died. This shows that Hamlet did not plan for revenge well but was rather carried away by feelings and participated in the battle organized by Laertes for his revenge. Hamlet’s revenge can be said to be ineffectual compared to that of Laertes and Fortinbras. This is because he decided to take action but was delayed until the final moments of the play. However, Hamlet makes to take revenge after killing Claudius. 

Laertes also suffered from the coincidental death of his father who was his close friend. However, Laertes chose a different way to that of Hamlet. He was consumed by emotions and unlike Hamlets Laertes does not analyze the pathway he wants to take but rashes to taking action: Laertes on learning of his fathers’ death grieved a lot and organized a crowd that went threat to overthrow the King of Denmark if he failed to produce the killer of his father. As Bell states, Claudius told him that his father was killed by Hamlet and developed a grudge against Hamlet (49). This gave Laertes evidence of Hamlet having been involved in his father’s death and motivated him to work with Claudius to take revenge against Hamlet. 

Laertes is such kind of a rash person and nothing would have distracted him from revenge. Laertes does not think about the afterlife but desires to seek revenge at all means. This character makes him be influenced by Claudius to plan for the killing of Hamlet. His rush to take action without analyzing the motive of the King led to his death after being killed by Hamlet during the battle. However, despite his downfall, Laertes got revenge for his father since Hamlet died from the poisoned sword.

The Hamlet play is dominated by the theme of revenge. The three characters involved in revenge: Hamlet, Laertes, and Fortinbras used different ways for revenging against their fathers’ deaths. All the three achieved their revenge plans. However, Hamlet’s revenge was unsuccessful as compared to the other two because he delayed acting immediately resulting in a tragedy.

Objectives

Communicate your research and results in the form of a scientific poster

Learn how to optimize the balance of text, color schemes and supporting images in a poster

Present your research at our scientific conference during class time on December 7th & 9th

Assignment Description

During your time in 490A, you carried out two group research projects: 1) on drug use among high school seniors and 2) on the psychosocial wellbeing of older adults. For each research project you had to:

Propose scientific questions and hypotheses

Conduct data management to ensure all your variables are coded correctly

Analyze the resulting data

Summarize the results of each study

Report the limitations of your data analysis

For your final research project, you will focus on one of the research projects you have already conducted with your group and you will create a scientific poster to describe your study and results. Your group can choose to create a poster from group project #1 using the Monitoring the Future data or group project #2 using the Health and Retirement Study. Your group will present their poster during our scientific conference on December 7th & 9th.

Steps

Decide which study to focus on for your poster project.

Look over two previous group projects and think about what story you might be able to tell with each. Think about your hypotheses and how you tested these hypotheses through analysis of the data using SPSS.

See example posters and see what formats and visuals you like. Which will work best with your project? Be sure that the approach/template you select can be easily read by others in the room (you will be projecting your poster on the screens in the classroom).

Start researching some background literature for your introduction section of the poster.

You should aim to include at least 4-5 references/citations in your introduction.

Start figuring out what analyses, tables, figures and graphics you want to display

Decide what tables and graphs you will use (you likely need to create new graphs that better describe your data or answer your research question, if you use graphs or charts from SPSS, be sure your edit them so they have all information you need (and don’t include information you don’t need!).

Start creating your poster (instructions for each component below)

Choosing a poster design and software

Find a software to create your poster with. We recommend using PowerPoint, as it is free and there are several free templates you can find online to get started. If you have Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator, you can feel free to use those as well.

You can find SDSU templates for posters here.

Poster dimensions are flexible, but the width can only be a maximum of 42” wide (including margins). 36” x 42” length x width or 42” x 36” length x width are ideal.

Make sure that the colors of both the background and font are not distracting to the audience and are easily legible (light fonts on a light background will be difficult to read as will dark fonts on a dark background -see section on visual tips below).

Entering your text and images into the poster

Posters will follow the basic format of having a title, introduction, methods, results, conclusion, acknowledgements, and reference section. It usually goes from top to bottom moving left to right, starting with the introduction and ending with the acknowledgements. (see examples on blackboard). Typically the results section is the longest part of the poster and will take up an entire column. The introduction and conclusion sections are typically the second longest after that, although this depends on the importance of each section to your project. If the methods are a large part of your project for example, it is fine to use more space in the poster for this section. It is key to have lots of images & graphics- these are the bread and butter of the poster!

Components of your poster (all must be included)

1) Title, Author names and Institution: The title of the poster typically has the biggest font size and goes at the top of the poster. It summarizes your research topic in a concise way (usually just the name of your topic). Your first and last name will go right underneath the title in a slightly smaller font. The name of your University (San Diego State University), Department (School of Public Health) and class (PH490A) will go right underneath your name in the same size font.

2) Introduction: The introduction section establishes what your research project is, why you are doing it and any necessary background information the audience needs to understand the project. The idea is to start with the most broad information first, and then narrow in on your specific topic and hypotheses. For example, if you were studying race differences in stress exposure, you would want to define what stress exposure is. You would then talk about the importance of studying stress exposure by race/ethnicity, and then what aspects of race and stress exposure that have not been studied yet. You can then lead to explaining your research project, why it fills that knowledge gap, and why it is significant. Lastly, detail your alternative hypotheses in this section toward the end. This section is usually around one to two paragraphs.

3) Methods: The methods section describes the methodology used in the experiment. For example, in group project #1 you would describe: where the data are from, your total sample size, and who is in your sample. You will describe how you recoded your variables and what race/ethnic or gender categories you are using and how you define them. You will also briefly describe what statistics you used and cite that you used in SPSS to do your data analyses.

4) Results: The results section will entail your findings from the study. This is a good place to add plots, bar charts, cross tabs, and tables. You can use them as the main information of this section. The legend for each table or figure should allow the reader to understand what the table or image/figure is without having read your poster. Text can be used to supplement and describe the figures and tables in more detail. Most of your results will be in the form of graphs. You can put the statistical results and explanation of the result and figure in the figure legend below each graph (2-3 sentences ideally) or summarize your results briefly in the conclusion section and tie them into the larger interpretation.

5) Conclusion: The conclusion section is an interpretation of the results section, so why you believe you got those results, and whether they support your initial hypothesis or not, and why. It is different from the results section because it explains these results; the results section will simply state any findings. You should try to explain why you got the results that you got in relation to your hypotheses. You should also suggest future tests that should be done to explore the study system further. You should also include any major limitations to your study design that may impact the results. This is also a good place to explain why the results you found are interesting or significant, as well as the potential broader implications.This section is usually one to two paragraphs or bullet points.

6) Acknowledgements (optional): Here is where you recognize any organizations, people, or fellowships/sources of funding that supported your experiment. You can include some of your peers here if you would like (if they were helpful), as well as your TAs or Instructor, the HRS or MTF (depending on what data you used), and anyone else that helped you. This section is typically the smallest one and can also have a reduced font size.

7) References: This section lists all the scientific articles that you used to conduct your research or to write any part of the poster. Like the acknowledgements section, this is also a small portion of the poster and can be reduced to a smaller font size. It typically goes right before the acknowledgements section in the bottom right corner of the poster. Use in-text citations in the other sections on your poster that align with one of your listed references.

References should be formatted in the following manner:

Use in-text citations in the introduction, methods and/or conclusion

You can use a numbered in-text citation format if you need to save space

Additional Guidelines/Tips

Visual tips: Make sure to use a color scheme that is compatible with a color-blind person, and that is not too distracting, or visually shocking (aka no neon colors). While writing your poster, keep in mind that your poster should not be too heavy in text. You should have images, figures and tables from your data to break up the text. An audience member looking at your poster will not be compelled to read it if it looks like an essay. Usually 200 words per section is a good way to make sure that it’s not too long. The font size should also be large enough so that the poster can be read about 6-10 feet away. Since the posters will be made on your computer, you can make sure that the font size is big enough by seeing if you can read it when the entire poster fits on the screen.

Images/Figures: The images should be relevant and support whatever section it is in. Feel free to be creative and bring in pictures and images that fit with your research question and match the vibe of your poster.

Present at our class’ Scientific Conference

Group presentations of your posters will be on Dec 7th and 9th via Zoom for a maximum of 5 minutes each

Considerations for interpreting your findings: 

Differences in health or other outcomes by specific demographics (e.g., race/ethnicity, parental education, age, gender) should not be interpreted to mean that there is anything inherently different about people by demographic factors. Rather, people in different social positions or with different social identities (e.g., male vs. female; Black vs. white vs. Latinx) may have different conditions in their social and physical environments as well as different access to opportunities to be healthy. Be sure to keep this in mind when you interpret your results. Thus, you should focus on the implications of the results for health promotion or health equity, rather than trying to identify a “cause” or specific reasons for what you found. You would need to leverage theory (at a minimum) and ideally longitudinal data to be able to make any concrete statements about why you see what you see in the data. Since we are not asking you to bring in theory or look at changes over time, please do not discuss “causes” of what you find! 

Considerations regarding group work

This is a group assignment, which means that all members must contribute to the assignment and should review the final draft before it is submitted for review by your instructor(s). While we know that group work can be tedious, it is critical that you work with your group members to complete this assignment to the best of your ability. In the working world, we often must complete tasks in teams and we rarely have the choice about who is specifically involved in team-based work.

Gender and Race/Ethnicity Differences in Anxiety Among Older Adults in Health and Retirement Study, 2016

Names: Yusur Al Dulaimy, Maricarmen Cervantes, Jessica Chang, Sarah Hoang, Coby Pham, and Paige Slaght

San Diego State University

2) Introduction:
Anxiety can be described as a feeling of fear, dread, and uneasiness, that affects all people regardless of skin color, background, or socio-economic status (—-). Anxiety in a general sense can have an impact on social decision-making behavior, such as social interactions such as communicating with strangers (—-). In extreme situations, like death anxiety, it can act as a barrier against end-of-life communications with health care providers (—-). Although there is a wide range of Anxiety, there have been efforts to explore how anxiety affects people of different races and gender, if any at all.

This study examines if there are any differences in gender and race in anxiety among older adults.

5) Conclusion:

You should also suggest future tests that should be done to explore the study system further.

As previously discussed, our findings from this report suggest that there is a statistically significant difference in Anxiety levels among older adults based on gender and race/ethnicity. The findings from this study may help us along the path of better understanding the relationship between gender, race/ethnicity, and Anxiety levels among adults as they age. They could imply that adults are increasingly affected by the expectations that are set on their lives as they grow older. As mentioned in the five values that make up the Anxiety scale, this study distinguishes symptoms of anxiety from depression, which infers that most adults are fearful and anxious about unexpected and uncontrollable complications transpiring in their lives (Smith et al., 2017). This buildup of Anxiety may compromise their mental health and overall wellbeing, which can potentially lead to early mortality. Therefore, when diagnosing and treating these adults, doctors should consider the level of Anxiety, making sure to take into account the fact that it is typically higher among females and Black individuals.

The 2016 article by Shervin Assari and Maryam Moghani Lankarani, Race and Gender Differences in Correlates of Death Anxiety Among Elderly in the United States, supports the idea that Anxiety differs between gender and race among older adults. This study backs the notion that there are higher Anxiety levels among females in particular, which mirrors our findings. A few differences that can be seen in their study are the focus on death Anxiety in particular and their use of additional variables such as “financial difficulty” and “perceived control over life” (Assari & Moghani Lankarani, 2016). Conversely, a 2010 article by Amy Byers titled High occurrence of mood and anxiety disorders among older adults: The National Comorbidity Survey Replication opposes our findings that Anxiety levels differ among adults based on race/ethnicity. Instead, the author claims that prevalence rates of Anxiety disorders actually decline with age and that there are no differences in prevalence between races/ethnicities (Byers, 2010). Byer’s study differed from ours due to her added utilization of diagnostic assessment to examine and diagnose mental disorders in participants.

As for limitations, our study on Anxiety among older adults is limited because only a tiny sample size was used. It lacks of racial/etnnic groups compression besides Whites and therefore, the credibility of the results obtained may be an issue. Another limitation is that the study does not include questions such as disabilities in the questions used as variables, which may be a cause of the anxiety perception among older adults. Likewise, the study relied on data for a short period, that is, one week. Hence the study may not be well justified. The survey on Anxiety perception period should be extended to maybe one year, and the frequency for each Anxiety level be recorded. Also, the study does not specify a special treatment to issues related to Anxiety. Proper treatment to reduce Anxiety levels among adults should be researched.

The results section also needs to be written in paragraph form but try not to only have one paragraph, it makes for very difficult reading. In the results section you will summarize the results you obtained based upon the all the tests you performed on your organism. Make sure to include Enterotube II results in this area.

For example: The phenol red carbohydrate tests for fermentation from glucose, lactose, mannitol and arabinose were performed. The lactose and mannitol test was performed on unknown #__ and it showed negative after 48 hours of incubation. Glucose and arabinose were yellow after incubation representing acid was produced lowering the pH of phenol red.

References (10 points)

I also require at least five citations. References should be written following the following format:

Ehrlich, P.R., Raven, P.H. (1969) Differentiation of populations. Science 165: 1228-1232.

References should include lab manual, Bergey’s manual and Enterotube book.

Critical Thinking

The Chinese company BYD is pursuing electric cars and hopes to become the world’s largest car company. With the financial support of American Warren Buffett, the company, which has only been in existence for a few years mostly making batteries, has caught the attention of not only Mr. Buffett but also many in the auto industry.

ELECTRIC AND HYBRID CARS

Electric cars (also known as electric vehicles or EVs) rely exclusively on battery power. With an all-electric EV there is no internal combustion engine, muffler, gasoline tank, air and fuel filters, and other parts needed to run a gasoline powered system. The vehicle itself also produces no tailpipe emissions, and by getting its power from an efficient utility company, overall, it produces fewer greenhouse gases. This is especially true if the electricity is produced with nuclear power, clean coal, or natural gas. EVs are also less expensive to fuel on a per mile basis. Electric cars, however, have a shorter driving range and are difficult to operate with long distance travel.

There are also some safety concerns associated with using a lithium-ion battery, as lithium is a highly reactive material prone to explosion

Do you think electric cars may become a viable alternative to gasoline-powered vehicles? What is the future of the electric car? Explain your answer especially in the context of KSA as Saudi Arabia is moving towards carbon free economy.

Given a business strategy of being the word leader in manufacturing electric cars with innovative technology, what operations and supply chain strategy do you think BYD should pursue? Identify what operations and supply chain should do to help BYD compete including a mission, objectives, distinctive competence, and key decisions.

Note: Go to the company website and answer the above questions. This is just an advice. You may surf net , company report, Saudi vision 2030 to answer the questions.

Lesson 6: Empathy Learning Objectives Develop empathy skills. Lesson Introduction This lesson

Lesson 6: Empathy

Learning Objectives

Develop empathy skills.

Lesson Introduction

This lesson focuses on empathy—an important competency in emotional intelligence. Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person.

There are times when someone just needs to know you are there for him or her. Showing empathy may mean that you put your arm around a friend to show caring and your willingness to support them in an emotional time.

Empathy deepens our connection with one another through allowing a feeling of truly sharing another person’s experience.

Empathy is not limited to any one emotion; in fact, it may manifest as sorrow, joy, or perhaps disappointment. Learning that your best friend is newly engaged to be married, you may feel as if your heart is enlarging with happiness. You are experiencing empathy for your friend. On the other hand, you may feel heavyhearted when you learn that a coworker’s mother died recently. In this instance, you might remember at an emotional level how you have been affected by the death of a loved one.

Although the previous examples are somewhat dramatic life circumstances that occur relatively infrequently, empathy plays a role in each person’s daily life at home and at work as well. Emotional intelligence calls for empathizing with one another, even during the more mundane details of daily life. Empathy means that you are able to relate to that new person in the department who asks a lot of questions and appears to lack confidence. You remember what it is like to be new and trying to learn so many things at once. Rather than being dismissive and rude, your empathy allows you to give the benefit of the doubt and to show patience and understanding as you provide the appropriate level of assistance.

What Is Empathy and Do You Have It?

Have you ever started laughing just because you see someone else lost in a belly laugh? Empathy is the capacity to feel another’s joy, pain, disappointment, or sorrow. As social beings, empathy is an aspect of emotional intelligence that can stop you from being so self-centered that you ignore what others around you are experiencing.

Theodor Lipps, a German psychologist, created the term Einfühlung in the 1880s. Literally, it means “in-feeling,” and Lipps used the word to describe “the emotional appreciation of another’s feelings” (Ioannidou & Konstantikaki, 2008).

Over time, other clinicians and researchers have also added to this classic definition. Zinn (1993) emphasizes the “vicarious sharing of another’s experience” while maintaining the role of observer, whereas Keen broadens the definition to include an ability to participate emotionally while not getting actively involved.

Empathy is not the same as sympathy. Not only are these terms not synonymous but there is also an important difference. Sympathy connotes an emotion—a feeling of sorrow about another person’s plight. Person A may feel sympathy for Person B who just lost a pet; Person A feels sad based on how she felt when she lost her pet. In part, sympathy is a way of interpreting what you think someone is going through. Person A, sharing what she felt during her own sad time, may be unaware she is dismissing Person B’s feelings by assuming she knows what the pet meant to Person B. At times, sympathizers make the mistake of trying to fix the issue or offering unsolicited advice.

On the other hand, a person feeling empathy for that same person would have felt a sense of that person’s experience of losing a pet that they loved. In fact, you could empathize in this example without ever owning a pet.

Empathizing means letting go of the thinking aspect in favor of perceiving the other’s feelings. There is no need to take center stage as the advice giver or solver. The beauty is in the shared experience. In this example, the person would empathize by approaching the other, listening as the person shared what he or she wanted, and then acknowledging the other’s feelings and grief (Ioannidou & Konstantikaki, 2008).

When you see a couple embracing, what do you imagine they are feeling? Empathy requires that you listen and look so that you can see facial expressions and body language. If you empathize with this couple, you will actually experience a feeling of joy or a fullness in your heart.

Empathy requires perceiving and understanding on an emotional level what the other person is experiencing. Successfully working together requires learning how to listen deeply in order to understand another person’s perspective. Without it, true collaboration is hard to achieve. Another requirement of empathy is respect. When working in teams, it is in everyone’s best interest to work at understanding what the other team members need and desire. It may require some artful negotiation to ensure everyone’s needs are met to some degree, but working to see the world through another’s eyes is a good first step in true collaboration. Empathy insists on letting go of “being right” and moving forward to “make it right.”

At the end of this paragraph, you will find a link to a free online empathy questionnaire. Although this questionnaire may be used for clinical purposes, it can also be of benefit to individuals of the general population who want to obtain some objective data about their capacity to empathize with others.

Please go to the Empathy Quotient (opens new tab) questionnaire to learn more.

Lesson Summary

Take a moment to think about what you have learned in this lesson:

Empathy is the capacity to understand and share the feelings of another person.

Sympathy is an emotion of pity or sorrow that you experience. It is different from empathy because the focus is on self rather than connecting to the other’s experience. Sympathy creates a distance, while empathy closes it.

Empathy can take the form of positive emotions like joy (for someone’s upcoming wedding) or negative emotions like disappointment (for someone who lost out on a desired promotion).

EGL 1020

Paper 1 Assignment

For your first paper assignment for EGL1020, you will need to examine a particular element(s) of literature as it applies to one or more of the texts we have read. Presumably, this will mean that you will need to work with The Cask of Amontillado and/or Everyday Use. However, you may choose any of the texts mentioned in the syllabus. Papers should choose one or more basic elements of literature (setting, character, plot, point of view, etc.) as we discussed in class and trace their development in one or more texts. The goal is to make a statement about how one or more of these elements works in one or more of the texts from the class. You are free to develop and shape your topic as you see fit. I have included possible topics below, but you are encouraged to modify or create your own topic as long as it fits the general requirements defined above. The primary goal here is to demonstrate your ability to recognize different elements in a given text and reflect on them in writing.

The paper should use Font size 12 or 13, and the paragraphs need to be double-spaced. Information directly taken from text, either verbatim or paraphrased, should be properly attributed to the author. The length requirement is 3-4 pages. See your text for sample essays and consult the examples online as well. Avoid using “you” or “I” in the paper. Keep it in the third person only.

Sample Paper Topics

1. Explain how the narrator’s point of view shapes the action and pacing of The Cask of Amontillado. Trace the plot and the different aspects of the story and how they are revealed by the narrator. You could also compare and contrast the narrators in The Cask of Amontillado and Everyday Use. Be sure to include several examples from the text to support your thesis.

2. Discuss the types of characters present in The Cask of Amontillado and/or Everyday Use. Are they rounded or flat? Are they sympathetic or untrustworthy? How do you know? Use examples from these stories to support your claim.

3. Focus on the setting in one of our texts. How is it portrayed? Does it change? What effect does it have on the characters or plot?

Global Studies Question

The economist Jeffrey Sachs argues that specific and achievable goals help to develop more effective policy reforms.
As an example, he quotes President John F. Kennedy who gave the commencement address at American University in 1963.
In that speech, Kennedy said: “By defining our goal more clearly, by making it seem more manageable and less remote, we can help all people to see it, to draw hope from it and to move irresistibly towards it.”
Kennedy meant the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty needed to have specific and achievable goals to be effective, and Sachs means that the clarity of the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) can help achieve policy reform.
How would you use the same idea of specific and achievable goals to think about changes in policy or society in relation to sustainability? Specifically,
1.Justify the relevance of Kennedy’s statement with respect to the UN SDGs with specific references to the role of governments and private corporations.
2.Identify two of the SDGs that you consider important (as they relate to either your local community or to your core values). With the two selected SDGs, evaluate the interdependence of those goals while considering how the funding needs and action plans for the goals are interconnected

Each student will choose a particular theme pertaining to colonial America (1607-1776)

Each student will choose a particular theme pertaining to colonial America (1607-1776) that they would like to learn about for this week. For example, the Salem witch trails, The slave trade, or European exploration. Students will find 6 primary sources from the chosen theme. All sources must be from the GMC library for this assignment.

Students will provide:

a complete APA reference for each source

a picture of each source

a 2-3 sentence description of their source

a paragraph explaining at least 3 different ways historians could use that primary source

Putnam, A. (1706). The Repentance of a Witchcraft Accuser. Retrieved January 18, 2016.

This essay, written by John Winthrop the first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, described the city of Boston and its 4,000 residents, its government, and the role of the church in the colony. It also ends with a statement about local Native Americans saying that “For the natives, they are near all dead of the smallpox, so the Lord hath cleared our title to what we possess.”

Historians can use this document in at least 3 different ways. First, the basic descriptions of Massachusetts and Boston allow historians to have a better understanding of the city’s development. Second, its description of the death of Native Americans to smallpox helps scholars to know where disease struck and which groups were affected by European diseases. Finally, and most important, is Winthrop’s statement about Native American death, reflecting Puritanical beliefs about God’s will for Christian communities. Winthrop saw the death of Indians as a divine proof from God that colonization and taking the land and resources from Native Americans was what God wanted for the Puritans.[supanova_question]

E-learning

Type the phrase “e-learning in training” into Google and the search will produce no fewer than 75,000 hits! The extraordinary growth of information technologies in today’s world now requires that a trainer also make decisions about how to develop and use electronic support related to the training (Dobbs, 2006; United Nations, 2013; Onguko, Jepchumba, & Gaceri, 2013) and especially when e-learning is used to supplement traditional face-to-face training delivery, known as blended learning (Bonk, Kim, & Zeng, 2005).

The allure of e-learning in training is based on two primary issues: speed and savings (Allen, 2013; ASTD, 2012; Jochems, Koper, & Van Merrienboer, 2013; Pelet, 2013). Well-researched organizational examples of this idea include the Dow Chemical Company, which reduced average spending from $95 per learner per course on classroom training to only $11 per learner per course with electronic delivery; this reduction translated into an annual savings of $34 million (Shepherd, 2003). Ernst & Young cut training costs 35% by condensing 2,900 hours of classroom training into 700 hours of web-based learning, 200 hours of distance learning, and 500 hours of classroom instruction—a cut of 52% (LiveOps Receives Brandon Hall Group Excellence in Learning Award, 2013). Specifically, e-learning, especially when used to supplement traditionally face-to-face methods, can accomplish the same amount of instruction or information as in a classroom 25% to 60% of the time (Jochems et al., 2013; Rosenberg, 2001).

According to the Brandon Hall Group (“LiveOps Receives,” 2013), there are several reasons e-learning can reduce the time it takes to train people:

Learners can go at their own pace, not at the pace of the slowest member of a group.

Time in classrooms can be spent on questions or topics other learners introduce that are irrelevant to the needs of the individual learner.

There is less social interaction time.

It takes less time to start and wind up a learning session.

There is less travel time to and from a training event.

Learners learn what they need to learn, and they can skip elements of a program.

But What Is E-learning?

E-learning is any technology-enhanced learning, computer-based instruction, Internet-based training, or virtual instruction (Larson & Lockee, 2013; Pelet, 2013; Vijayasamundeeswari, 2013; Wan, 2013). Specifically, e-learning includes numerous types of media that deliver text, audio, images, animation, and streaming video. It includes technology applications as well as local intranet/extranet, smart phone apps, and web-based learning (Wan, 2013; Werner & DeSimone, 2011).

E-learning is unique because it is both a delivery method and a medium; it can be self-paced and asynchronous learning; that is, not in real time, such as with the use of a YouTube® video or podcast. Or, with an instructor, it can be synchronous; that is, in real-time, such as that seen on platforms like Skype® or FaceTime® (Allen, 2006; Driscoll, 2010). E-learning is usually blended in conjunction with other delivery methods, such as instructor led (U.S. Department of Labor, 2010; Dobbs, 2006). In other words, when it comes to e-learning, it is not necessarily an either–or approach, but could include both. However, e-learning has issues other delivery methods may not have. According to Lin (2007), when developing e-training tools, particularly, issues of copyright, learner privacy, and accessibility must be considered.

However, as technology becomes more pervasive in the workplace, e-learning still must be developed with adult learning principles in mind (Larson & Lockee, 2013; Wan, 2013). That is, e-learning, too, must be interactive, problem oriented, and relevant to real-world issues, and it must lead the learner toward intrinsic motivation (Dobbs, 2006; Knowles, 1973; Stolovitch & Keeps, 2011). With this in mind, e-learning seems to be effective, according to Allen (2013); a 9-year survey of the research literature in training published by Tobias and Fletcher (2000) and commissioned by the American Psychological Society says: “Learners learn more using computer-based instruction than they do with conventional ways of teaching, as measured by higher post-treatment test scores” (p. 414).

HRD in Practice: How E-learning Becomes Less Expensive Than Traditional Training: A Detailed Example of a Healthcare Organization

A healthcare customer had a requirement to train 500 learners. The training would require 25 weeks to cycle the learners through a traditional classroom or 1 week to train all of the learners using custom online training. After calculating a total cost savings of $1,294,000, the company decided to choose an online learning delivery strategy to save money and train the employees in a shorter time frame.

Table 5.3 by consulting firm SyberWorks (2014) gives an example of the typical components that make up training expenses and then compares the classroom setting with custom online training. The return-on-investment for e-learning can be 50% to 60% greater than for traditional training, which itself can have a fourfold ROI, if done properly. Table 5.3 assumes a traditional classroom training plan that includes 500 trainees who each experience a week of training, travel for half of them (250 employees), the time constraint of a 3-month rollout (5 trainers, 10 locations)—all compared to an equivalent e-learning scenario using very conservative assumptions, including an opportunity cost rate of $400 per day.

These figures indicate that the e-learning approach, given conservative assumptions, saves approximately 30% in the first year of implementation; in the second and later years, when development costs are not a factor for this course, the savings for e-learning grows to nearly 50%. In addition, the computer-based training or web-based training can be rolled out in half the time, once developed.

Consider This

The expenses outlined by SyberWorks summarize tangible costs; what could be some intangible costs of e-learning, if any?

What assumptions does the ROI calculation make about the organization’s capability (for example, infrastructure) for e-learning?

Explain why trainer wages would be less in an e-learning scenario.

Selecting Training Media

According to Piskurich (2010), certain training media are recommended over other types depending, on the key variables of use and audience size (see Table 5.4).

For example, although PowerPoint® is desirable for explanation and clarification, it is not meant to educate the trainees; handouts or a (black)board are more appropriate to educate. Also, a PowerPoint® presentation might be too formal and stilted for a small training session. Likewise, flip charts and whiteboards are not appropriate media for audiences.

In their study of the use of certain training media (see Table 5.5), Hirumi, Bradford, and Rutherford (2011) found that the minimum and maximum development hours of training materials was a function of course material stability. That is, if the training materials and media are considered very stable (with no significant changes predicted for more than 3 years), then the course materials are considered more stable.

While use and audience size drive media selection, course developers should keep in mind a list of media tools that range from high development costs for very stable content to low development costs for changing content. For example, although the Second Life® virtual reality software ultimately may be effective, it may take longer to recoup the initial training investment due to up to 2,000 hours of development time.

HRD in Practice: IBM Uses Second Life® Virtual Software for Training and Team Building

Second Life® is an online virtual world developed by Linden Lab. It was launched on June 23, 2003, and recently celebrated 10 years as the Internet’s largest 3-D environment software. The power of Second Life® is that remote users interact with each other through avatars (also called residents) who can meet other residents, socialize, participate in individual and group activities, and create and trade virtual property and services with one another. Companies like Cisco Systems and the Intel Corporation use the online world for meetings, interviews, guest speaker events, and training for other employees. And now, the International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) is embracing the virtual world it created for its employees. Chuck Hamilton, the virtual learning leader at IBM’s Center for Advanced Learning, claims that Second Life® is ideal for the company. Hamilton recently told Hypergrid Business, “At IBM, we have over 400,000 employees and 70 percent or so are outside the Americas and 44 percent of the population works outside a traditional office—we are virtual by nature.”

Consider This

Why would software such as Second Life® encourage team building among the users?

How might a virtual environment encourage trainer participation?

Does virtual software like Second Life® diminish the challenges of diversity in the workplace?

Other Factors That Affect Development Time

A recent study from the ASTD (Kapp & Defelice, 2009) suggests that development times may vary widely as a function of the scope of work, technology, and review time. Specifically, it was noted that factors that affected development time included:

lack of understanding of one’s responsibility to the project; this factor included not allotting enough time to review work, SME unavailability, and lack of provision of materials in a timely manner;

organizational changes; changes impacting either resources for the project or the overall project; and

incompatible technology and/or lack of knowledge of a technology. It was noted several times that the clients’ technology was incompatible and/or there was a learning curve to using the new tools.

E-Marketing Plan

Please see below what you need to do in brief for the e-marketing plan

1. Introduction: Focus on the company (first paragraph) and its industry (second paragraph).

2. Situation Analysis and SWOT analysis: Focus on the micro and macro environmental factors that the company is facing with special reference to the company’s online presence. Then you need to prepare a SWOT table for the company – list of S (Strength of the company), W (Weaknesses), O (Opportunities) and T (Threats).

3. E-Marketing strategic planning: Focus on company’s segmentation, targeting, differentiation and positioning strategies especially for its operations in online. i.e. what specific customer base the company is targeting by going online, how it is differentiating from its competitors, and how it is positioning its offers to the customers’ mind. It is recommended to show a comparative view of the current and future segmentation, targeting, differentiation and positioning strategies of the firm.

4. E-marketing objectives: State 2 to 3 e-marketing objectives that the company may wish to achieve in next 1-2 years. It could be increasing online customer base by XX%, as an example.

5. Marketing mix strategies – Now you need to recommend 4 P strategies through which the company can achieve the above mentioned objectives and describe those strategies.

6. Implementation – In order to implement the planned strategies, you need to execute several relevant activities such as – making the website more interactive (as an example), pursuing AdWords PPC campaign, something like that… Thus, in this section, you need to discuss the relevant activities that are required to execute in order to implement the 4 P strategies.

7. Budget and Evaluation – This is more of arbitrary than actual numbers. You need to guess realistically how much the company need to spend for all these activities. Then discuss how you will measure/evaluate the effectiveness of your plan i.e. specifically what matrix you will look for to check whether you have achieved your objectives or not.[supanova_question]

Understanding technical details of bill-and-hold transactions is not an objective of this assignment, though you are free to do your own research on these transactions in the oil industry if you are interested.
No more than 3 sentences should be dedicated to the “facts” portion of Step 1.
Keep in mind that George can only decide on his own actions and cannot decide on the actions of other parties in the dilemma.
Because George cannot change what has already occurred, application of the framework should not try to change the facts by suggesting that George should have taken a different step earlier in the case. George is unable to change the past and can only plan for what could happen in the future.
Step 5 requires the brainstorming of alternative courses of action and should not include an evaluation of the various alternatives. Resist the urge to evaluate these alternatives until later steps.

BUSI 416 Discussion Board Instructions You will participate in four Discussion Board

BUSI 416

Discussion Board Instructions

You will participate in four Discussion Board forums. Each forum will consist of a thread and at least (minimum) two replies. Each forum is based on a chapter topic. Outside research will be required for the initial thread.  The instructor is looking for substantial, thoughtful, and critical discussions. Discussion criteria for this assignment is fulfilled when you have posted one thread (concerning your topic) and two replies (one each to two classmates’ threads). A substantive reply includes at least 100 words analyzing the initial thread as well as adding to the research and concepts put forth in that thread.

The goal is to create meaningful discussion. To simply restate the idea already put forth or to concur with the first reply is not adding substantial discussion, which is why it is necessary to do additional outside research. Make sure to provide scholarly and educational material and work that is engaging and substantive. Simply meeting the minimum requirements earns one only the minimum grade.

To begin your thread for a particular module, find a topic from the week’s reading assignment that interests you.

Conduct an Internet search to find a recent articles that relates to the topic you selected.  Articles may be found on any reputable website that focuses on business, such as Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, or the Economist. Another good source of information is EBSCOhost, accessible through Liberty’s Online Library. Websites like about.com, britanica.com, Wikipedia etc. do not constitute scholarly academic articles and references.

Write a review of the article. Reference the article you review within the article review. Your review must include the following sections (each section must be structured by a heading for each section):

a. A definition of the topic: this does not count in the 200-word minimum requirement.

b. A summary, in your own words, of the selected article.

c. A discussion, in your own words, of how the article relates to the selected chapter and topic.

d. The complete citation, in APA format.

Paste your review into a new thread. Click “Submit” to publish your review for the class.

The Impact of the Gospel (Module/Week 6)

These discussions are designed to help you think through the impact your theological understanding has on your everyday life. Your worldview will be taken into consideration as it relates to how you engage with society.

You must participate a minimum of 2 times for each forum interaction. To participate, you may either post 1 thread and 1 reply, or 2 replies (a reply to a reply or a reply to a thread) in order to keep the conversation moving.

You are expected to participate actively in the online discussions, to read the discussions several times each module/week, and to post substantive responses at least twice each module/week. Your replies must not be completed all at one time. The purpose is to have a conversation. If you were speaking with friends, you would hopefully not be the only person speaking for a long time while the others remained silent. Replies created within short time spans will be flagged and reviewed. You may not receive credit for Discussion Board Forum Interaction replies that are posted too soon after your most recent thread/reply. Your instructor reserves the right to this review and judgement. For example: A post at 11:55 p.m. one night followed by a new post at 12:25 a.m. the next morning is an example of such a violation.

Your thread and all replies must be substantial and thoughtful in nature. Again, these interactions are meant to mimic conversation. Conversations include statements as well as questions. Remember not only to engage with the provided prompts, but to engage with your classmates as well. Substantive answers will reveal signs of active listening and application of content. Limit the length of your posts to 200–300 words each.

In addition to answering all prompts, you are expected to interact with other participants and probe their thinking. Refer to course readings and videos and engage with biblical texts before responding. You are required to check the discussion board postings frequently and to participate consistently while engaging thoughtfully in the discussion.

Submit all responses by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of the assigned modules/weeks.[supanova_question]

“A Day in the Life of Renaissance” Video

Purpose
Learners will create a digital story from the point of view of a historical figure to demonstrate their knowledge and comprehension of a historical period/era/event
Details
(1) Choose a time period and region that pertains to the course.
Example: Renaissance Italy.
(2) Choose three examples of people within that time period and region from different classes or stations in life (These can be composite characters or actual historical figures).
Examples: slave, serf, peasant, merchant, philosopher, temple priest/priestess, clergy member, aristocrat, monarch, etc.
(3) Use at least 10 sources, both primary and secondary, to research what their daily lives were like (at least 5 of the 10 sources must be primary ones). Here are some tips:
Look for personal details like …
When they woke up and went to sleep
Their personal hygiene practices
What they wore
What, when, and how much they ate
What kinds of work or leisure activities they did
Who they encountered
What types of technology they were able to use
What kinds of hardships or challenges they experienced
What significant historical events they experienced, à la Forrest Gump
Et cetera
Acceptable Primary and Secondary Sources
Primary sources (court records, memoirs/autobiographies, letters, artifacts, etc.)
Print secondary sources
Scholarly journals
Newspaper and other media and video archives
Appropriate history-related websites and databases (not Wikipedia)
Historical documentaries
History textbooks
(4) Submit your sources in the Annotated Bibliography paper prior to completing your Final Project.
(5) Write scripts for each of your subjects’ five minute videos (total of 15 minutes) in the “Day in the Life” style often seen on YouTube and Instagram. Here are some tips:
Introduce your subject and make the purpose of the video clear.
Keep your subject’s class/station in life in mind when writing their script, e.g., a medieval serf wouldn’t have spoken in the same way as the Archbishop of Canterbury would have.
You can be creative here and use slang or poor grammar if it makes sense for your historical figure; just be consistent.
You can add additional actors to your video if you’d like your character to meet someone during the course of their day, as long as the person they meet makes sense within the historical context, and your focus remains primarily on your character.
(6) Choose set(s) and gather props, costumes, and/or images you’d like to use in your videos.
(7) Review your script. If you are unsure of the pronunciation of any of the words or names in your script, please look them up on forvo.com prior to filming.
(8) Start filming your videos. Here are some suggestions for software to use:
iMovie
Movie Maker
Final Cut Express
Camtasia
WeVideo
(9) Edit your videos for quality, consistency, pacing, and adherence to the time length requirement.

Additional Info: I will be attaching a link giving five Primary sources and five Secondary sources of Renaissance to help you in making the video. You only need to find three people who were involved in Renaissance and describing each point of their life and their contribution in Renaissance. I’ve given apps to help you choose on making the video. Important: BE CREATIVE AND INTERESTING. (Add additional info that whom they worked with, adding pictures and etc).
