Choice 3: Reviews / Data / Analytic: If you go out to eat do you read the restaurant reviews on Yelp? What if you are buying a product on Amazon – do you read the reviews? Or – registering for a class – do you go to ratemyprofessor.com to read the reviews. How do you know if a review is real? Do you consider a fake review fraud? Social media data is often used as part of “big data” and data analytics. How can we be sure it is good data? Read this article related to spotting a fake review: https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/spot-a-fake-review-on-amazon. In your summary, explain the importance of customer reviews, what this article highlighted about reviews, and give your opinion on if you agree with this approach? Think about this from the perspective of both a customer and a member of the company using reviews for preparing an analysis to the BOD. Also, what do you thing about people who are paid to “try” products and post videos/reviews? Is that ethical and how does that impact your analysis.

Introduction The purpose of this paper is to enhance Nvidia’s contributions to

Hi We have been given this assignment to write a reflection memo on a peer review exercise we did Introduction

The purpose of this paper is to enhance Nvidia’s contributions to the advancement of computer and graphic design. The papers compare the two businesses and aim to provide an opinion on which products are the best made, emphasizing NVIDIA’s shortcomings. It summarizes the operational shortcomings of the products and their relative advantages to make the most relevant improvement recommendations for NVIDIA. Gaming is also well-known, and the parts contained within gaming processors and designed produced by the two firms distinguish their products. Finally, the report compares the unique elements and processors that the other company cannot employ. RAM, Merlin components, and NVIDIA are the most crucial areas for improvement. 

Merlin MLOps on Google Kubernetes Engine with Kubeflow Pipelines

This section is an excellent demonstration of how to comprehend a work process using Kubeflow pipelines and GKE. GKE provides a supervised environment for delivering, managing, and scaling containerized applications built on the Google Cloud Platform. Kubeflow Pipelines is a stage for developing and distributing compact, adaptive machine learning (ML) work processes Docker-based. With a current GKE bunch, Kubeflow pipelines can be effectively introduced with a single button press. Kubeflow Pipelines was chosen as the orchestrator that connects the components of a Merlin MLOps pipeline. Containerized applications are used in the Kubernetes world. Merlin Docker holders, including the Merlin preparation and deduction compartments, are accessible on NGC. These containers can be extracted and then pushed to Google Cloud Container Registry, ready to be used with GKE. 

Constant re-preparation

For data preprocessing and model preparation, a Merlin preparing unit is used. NV Tabular is responsible for data preprocessing, which includes creating and integrating the preprocessed dataset into the pipeline’s standard constant volume. Following that, Huge CTR takes the preprocessed data and trains a DCN model. The model can be refreshed incrementally or completely by employing all or a portion of the available data. Deployment and duty: The arranging module prepares for the creation of the Huge CTR prepared model. Models are then organized and stored in a model store in GCS. Depending on the application domain, model serving may consist of two stages: Candidate age reduces the number of up-and-comers from a potentially infinite space to a computationally manageable number, for example, a great many things. Merlin retrieves and serves the most recently prepared Huge CTR model from the model store. This compartment holds the Triton Inference Server, which is equipped with a massive CTR induction backend. The methodology repositions the newly produced up-and-comers and prioritizes the highest-scoring individuals. While logging and checking, the observing unit continuously monitors the nature of the proposal (hit rate, transformation rate) and automatically initiates full retraining when a crucial model float is identified. NVIDIA Triton and the checking module collect data and store it in Prometheus and Grafana. 

Contextual analysis of the Criteo Terabyte clicks log dataset

This model illustrates the Merlin MLOps pipeline running on Kubeflow pipelines and GKE with the Criteo Terabyte click log dataset, one of the most enormous publicly available datasets in the suggestion space. It contains 1.3 TB of uncompressed click records spanning 24 days and can be used to build recommender system models that predict promotion clickthrough rates. To ensure protection, highlights are anonymized, and absolute attributes are hashed.  

Each record in this dataset contains 40 qualities: 

• A mark demonstrating a tick (esteem 1) or no snap (esteem 0) 

• 13 values for mathematical elements 

• 26 values for unmitigated elements 

Because this information contains only collaborations and not clients, products, or qualities, we omitted the emerging age and last positioning sections. Professionals have developed a sophisticated scoring algorithm to forecast whether clients will click on the advertisement. 

Unique Characteristics Weaknesses in Various Forms This section discusses features, a subset of the report’s significant features. GPU with several instances running on GKE. NVIDIA Triton is shipped in a GKE A100 MIG enclosure to maximize GPU utilization. NVIDIA’s Multi-case GPU (MIG) technology partitions a single NVIDIA A100 GPU into up to seven independent GPU cases. They continue to operate in the background, each with its memory, reserve, and streaming multiprocessors. This enables the A100 GPU to maintain guaranteed quality of service (QoS) at up to 7x the rate of previous GPUs. Petite proposal models that fit inside the memory of a MIG event can be loaded onto an appropriately sized GKE MIG case. We are attempting to alleviate this memory constraint by incorporating table storage. GPU autoscaling in the NVIDIA Triton organization can be performed using both default measurements such as CPU/GPU utilization and memory utilization, as well as bespoke measurements. We trade a custom measurement with the Prometheus administrator for this model based on the average time spent approaching solicitation in the derivation line. If the derivation load on NVIDIA Triton builds increases, the time spent by upcoming solicitations in the induction line will also increase. The Horizontal Pod Autoscaler (HPA) can plan an additional NVIDIA Triton Pod on freely accessible GPU hubs to compensate for the load increase. If no hubs are available in the GPU hub pool, the HPA activates the GKE hub autoscaler, adding another GPU hub to the pool. Once each hub in the bunch becomes accessible, the Kubernetes Pod scheduler plans another instance of the NVIDIA Triton Pod on that GPU hub. The heap balancer would then direct any future solicitations to the freshly developed NVIDIA Triton Pod. Thus, if the heap shrinks, the autoscaler can shrink the hubs. 

Sending Demands for Deductions

By implication, an end client collaborates with the deduction server via a customer application or proposition API that interprets client solicitations and responses to induction requests. To this purpose, we’ve included a customer application for testing deductions that can be used to browse Criteo. Maintain Parquet records and communicate with the NVIDIA Triton endpoint using induction gRPC solicitations. The overarching goal of this post was to demonstrate a recommender system built with Merlin components and running as a Kubeflow pipeline. On the other hand, several components of this model could be planned or upgraded. For instance, the Cloud Pub/Sub protocol communicates demand data from the deduction customer to the observing module. This confers a high degree of adaptability, dependability, and the benefits of nonconcurrent behavior. Regardless, this includes an enhanced dependency on the GCP framework. Alternatively, a person could employ other message lines, similar to Kafka. Data float can be viewed in real-time, particularly when no client input is required to gauge model operation. One could tie an answer to the approval of the information component of observing. 

Additionally, it would be preferable if one first screened exception from out-of-distribution tests. The data acceptance component, which uses TensorFlow Data Validation, has a straightforward model appearance and can be attached to the pipeline. There may be other appropriate activities for spotting float, such as sending alerts to customers or going to remedial lengths in addition to logging. Other libraries may be more suited to the usage scenario, such as Great Expectations or Alibi Detect. 

This model with Merlin components on a Kubeflow pipeline adheres to the previously described reference architecture. Most machine learning frameworks would follow a similar technical pattern, with data acquisition and cleaning components, preprocessing, preparation, model serving, and observation. This way, these squares can be easily replaced with custom holders and ready-to-use code. Any additional modules could be added to the pipeline itself (for example, information approval and preparation) or provided as a separate case within the bunch (like derivation and checking). This Merlin MLOps model serves as a guide for developing, incorporating, and operating pipelines. The code and step-by-step instructions for running this Merlin MLOps model are available on the GitHub repository NVIDIA-Merlin/GCP-ml-operations.

The Individual Development Plan (IDP) is based on a concept that emphasizes discussion and joint decisions between the employee and the supervisor, with mentors input, on the specific developmental experiences required to meet the mutual goals of individual career development and organizational enhancement. Each IDP is personalized to the individual’s and organization’s specific needs. The IDP is a personal action plan that specifies your immediate and long-term professional goals and is jointly agreed upon by you and your supervisor. An IDP also outlines the training and other developmental experiences required to achieve those goals within a set time frame, for the benefit of both the individual and the company.

-Personal development plan role in Organizational compliance through the development and achievement of the followings:

Vision

Enables others to acquire the tools and support they need to perform well. Shows a commitment to public served and meaningful contributions to mission accomplishment.

 Conflict Management

Identifies and takes steps to prevent potential situations that could result in unpleasant confrontations. Manages and resolves conflicts and disagreements in a positive and constructive manner to minimize negative impact.

 

 

-Managers uses personal development plan to motivate employees through the following:

1. Facilitate self-awareness

Employee motivation and well-being are key factors in job performance, and the former requires self-awareness. Personality tests are an objective and dependable tool to assist your employees gain self-awareness by allowing them to analyze various parts of their personality, their strong points, and then focus on areas of personal development.

2. Provide personal development resources

Invest in a set of tools that employees can choose from to further their personal and professional development. Offer personal assessment tools, e-learning courses, personal and career coaching sessions, and other (pre-purchased, discounted) services. Add-ons such as articles, podcasts, video tutorials, and other resources are available for these personal development tools.

3. Encourage development with both professional and personal goals

Most businesses make it easy for employees to define professional goals and then work toward achieving them. Employees, on the other hand, should be self-motivated to set goals for themselves. During a performance review, there may be an opportunity to explore these objectives. It will motivate and make them feel appreciated by demonstrating to your staff that their management cares about them as individuals, not just as company employees. A full-paid/co-paid offer for higher-education courses is an excellent example.

4. Allow scheduled time for personal development

Following the encouragement and facilitation of a professional development process and resources, it is critical for the organization to enable time within working hours for employees to use the numerous personal development resources. For example, it may be the 30 minutes set aside on the employee calendar a few times a week to take initiative and choose and use the various personal development tools available. This time is a vital long-term investment that both managers and employees should value because it benefits both the individual and the firm.

In 2014, Shelnside decided to have its own supply chain to manufacture and sell its manufactured clothes and purchased Romwe, Chinese e-commerce retailer. ( Cheng & Chow, 2010) Shelnside later changed its brand name to Shein in 2015. The company has continued to sell men’s apparel, children’s clothes, accessories, shoes, bags, and other fashionable items. Shein is currently shipping products to over 220 countries and regions across the world. It also has a website that supports America, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East alongside other consumer markets. The company is majorly known because of its affordable apparel, which is manufactured in China. The continuous growth of the company has been necessitated by its constant investment in innovation and technology. The company has very competent employees who have always ensured sustainable solutions to global challenges. It has employees who range between 1,001 to 5,000 employees.

Vision and Mission

Shein’s vision is to contribute to the developing society by becoming the world’s most preferred women’s clothing line. It aims at providing the highest value of trendy pieces by being dedicated to quality, value, and service. Shein focuses on attaining this by ensuring a good and healthy long-term relationship with customers by satisfying all their needs. Shein’s mission is to ensure they offer the best stylish and high-quality products at an appealing price to every user in the world. The mission is attained by observing integrity in all production procedures. Shein aims at utilizing employees’ talents to its advantage by innovating and using the latest technology. (Cheng & Chow, 2010) It aims at gaining massive popularity by demonstrating to be a good leader through research and innovation. The organization also aims at working with several celebrities to establish their brand as a sign of affluence and prosperity.

Organization Structure

Organizational structure is a crucial component to the success of an organization. An effective organization’s structure is fundamental to the achievement of Shein’s objectives. Globalization has led to increased competition, requiring organizations to focus on their ability to satisfy the customers and satisfy their employees. Shein is an international B2C online fast-fashion retailer shop. It has a website that supports over 220 countries worldwide and therefore requires an effective structure. A company structure is arranged following different factors such as groups, skills, expertise, and geographic divisions. Shein company operates with a functional hierarchy structure that is grouped depending on the business functions. The most fundamental departments in Shein’s organization structure include the finance, Human resource, marketing department.

Human resource is one of the most critical parts of the structure. The human resource in Shein’s company ensures it recruits and hires the most talented and skilled employees to meet its needs. Human resource personnel are also responsible for advising managers on issues related to employee’s competence. Another critical aspect of an HR department is facilitating workplace training and encouraging employee development through relevant training and workshops. The second most crucial department is the financial department. It makes financial decisions and exercises control over finances in the organization. The other key department is the marketing department. It always acts as the company’s face by being responsible for product branding, labeling, advertising, and other promotional activities. It plays a vital role in promoting the business and mission of an organization. All the departments are essential for ensuring both the employee’s and customers’ needs have been met. The structures also help to promote efficient operation in the organization.

Strategies for competitive advantage

Every company must always ensure the best strategies that help it to maximize the brand and profits in a positive way.

 Competitive advantage strategy: Shein clothing has always been a forward-looking business with plans to enable them to have a competitive advantage in the era of globalization in the twenty-first century.  It is of legitimate quality at a competitive price and attracts most people. A good image of the brand is useful because it reduces the value of the advertising cost and enables the company to maintain its importance among other companies and provide some financial resources

 Differentiation strategy: Shein has always been keen to provide high quality women’s clothing using legitimate materials. It is known that clothes made of original materials attract customers from all over the world. Quality is the main determinant when the customer buys a product, but Shein distinguished itself by good quality with lower prices.  About those around them that made them progress better

 Operational Effectiveness Strategy: The strategy that has enabled Shein to maintain its competitive advantage is a pool of competent professional employees.  Shein has made sure to hire highly qualified people as employees.  Employees are the driver of the company’s success.  It is well known that employees are essential essential factors in achieving all business objectives.  (Hughes, 2021,) Shein usually hires talented and competent employees to perform at a high production rate at a low cost.  Employees are motivated and well compensated through gifts to help them increase their skills and efficiency.  Enthusiastic staff always ensures that they provide good customer service to clients.  A happy team of staff will always provide the best customer service.  A key factor for the customer in influencing the satisfaction of critical decisions before purchasing a product.  The staff is well trained in customer service to ensure that there is a good relationship between customer service and customers.  Issuance of high-quality employee services: Customers are very satisfied.  The company has strong customer services that help create buying confidence in the organization.  SHEIN is very effective in promoting customer staff always provides customers with a sense of belonging when they buy a product because they reduce waiting time and increase their satisfaction through good interaction

 Technological innovation strategy: Shein has always been keen to invest in research and development to meet the changing preferences in the market. It has a lot of development in its own technologies. It is working well to develop the service to suit each country through the teller service and so on.

 Bargaining power with suppliers: A good supply chain provides smooth operations within an organizational structure.  A good supply chain determines how quickly products and raw materials are distributed across the Tau Matin production team (Thind, 2017).  Shein always ensures that raw materials are sourced from the most reliable supplier in the region.

 Customer Orientation Strategy: Factor how quickly products reach customers in the market gives customers a lot of satisfaction Shein has built a website that supports people from more than 220 countries in the world to buy from.  The company’s website ensures that all people can purchase products

 Business environment: It is an organization with a well-defined shein and an informed structure of its organizational structure.  Conduct comprehensive research to determine daily market needs.  A well-designed organizational structure is essential for organized structures which greatly help in inspiring a well-designed structure that creates an environmental market i.e. an efficient company.  Improve communication.  cooperation.  Increase productivity.  And make the organization’s decisions by analyzing all market activities and making informed decisions.  Where people can work effectively.  An efficient structure plays an important role at Shein, it has ensured that all employees are recruited and grouped according to their skills and experience to eliminate the risks of job duties overlap.  For example, if a project is assigned to one team, the team understands that it is their responsibility to complete it because other teams have other tasks assigned to them depending on their area of ??expertise.  Shein always ensures that all departments of the organization are well organized, such as marketing, finance and human resources aligned with organizational goals.  An effective organizational structure helps in gaining a competitive advantage in the market.  Shein ensures that their employees are motivated and well compensated to enhance their commitment to the company

Appropriate strategies for improvement

Like any other company in the market, Shein also has some ideal weaknesses that it should work on to improve its efficiency in the market. The major drawback is the high pricing of products. Shein should maximize their production and operation rate and reduce its pricing rate to compete favorably with other competitors. Secondly, the company should work on extending its brand to other countries. Shein should work on opening branches in other countries to provide their products to all customers quickly. Lastly, Shein has faced two lawsuits for copyright issues since 2018. The company should ensure it adheres to all the set rules in the fashion industry to avoid lawsuits. It should also ensure their work is always their intellectual property to prevent any image damage.

Technology involved

Technology input in the 21st century has been of significant impact to all companies. Shein relies highly on technology to maintain its competitive position in the market. Technology has helped companies to achieve a seamless operation and develop a unique brand during its process. Technology has become a key component of globalization in the 21st century. Technology has become a significant competitive advantage in the market

Hardware

Hardware has been the epicenter of technology in every organization. Shein has significantly invested in hardware to help make operations and customer service more efficient. The company has various computer desktops to help store necessary organizational information for easy tracing whenever required. The computers are also relevant in making customer services more efficient. The company also has high-speed monitors and tablets, which help save on time and cost as the client makes their orders. Secondly, Shein has robotic devices in the manufacturing department to help ease the operational task. The robots are used to move heavy loads within the manufacturing department.

Software

Software is also a critical factor of technology. Most of the organizational activities are programmed and executed by the use of the software. Shein has a software learning system that ensures that customers’ information is private and confidential and that no one can access the details. Customer information management is an essential factor that helps promote customer loyalty and trust in the organization. Another software that Shein has incorporated is performance management software. The software is used to evaluate employee’s competence. The performance management software helps the human resource to identify employees who are failing to reach their daily target. In addition, Shein has a customer relationship management system installed to ensure all customers’ needs are addressed. The system is known to ensure customers satisfaction is top-notch.

Information security.

In the 21st century, issues such as cybercrimes, computer hijacking have been on the rise. Therefore, Shein has incorporated information security measures to protect the business from such scenarios. Since most Shein clotheslines are of high value, the company has executed unique tactics to secure its products. The most common technique in securing is ensuring every product has a unique serial number that makes it easily recognizable in case of theft. The serial numbers are entered into the databases and can be accessed in the future when need be. Secondly, the company has employed a series of security checks when accessing the company information. For instance, Shein ensures that fingerprints are captured when accessing whatever details to ensure only the authorized team can access them. Strong protected passwords are also used to protect organization data. Information security has helped to keep the company’s information and promote intellectual property rights.

Telecommunication & Networks

Shein, as a successful company it has always ensured that effective communication flows within the organization. Shein has a well-interlinked information system that allows the organization to make decisions uniformly. In Shein company, communication is paramount for operational efficiency. Shein always ensures that all computers across the company are interconnected to allow easy passage of information from the top management to the ordinary employee, especially when issues affecting the company arise. Frequent information sharing across the company helps brainstorm different challenges affecting the organization to promote operation effectiveness. Shein has also ensured that Wi-Fi is installed in their stores to enable all employees to keep researching the new trends in the market and incorporate them. Shein uses online services to market and advertise their product and communicate with other online customers. The organization has also invested in website activities where different products are advertised to the customers to leverage internet connectivity in the 21st century.

Case Study: Healing and Autonomy Mike and Joanne are the parents of

Create an Environmental Impact Analysis by creating the sections required and​ brainstorming ways that these items will impact the Case Study: Healing and Autonomy

Mike and Joanne are the parents of James and Samuel, identical twins born 8 years ago. James is currently suffering from acute glomerulonephritis, kidney failure. James was originally brought into the hospital for complications associated with a strep throat infection. The spread of the A streptococcus infection led to the subsequent kidney failure. James’s condition was acute enough to warrant immediate treatment. Usually cases of acute glomerulonephritis caused by strep infection tend to improve on their own or with an antibiotic. However, James also had elevated blood pressure and enough fluid buildup that required temporary dialysis to relieve.

The attending physician suggested immediate dialysis. After some time of discussion with Joanne, Mike informs the physician that they are going to forego the dialysis and place their faith in God. Mike and Joanne had been moved by a sermon their pastor had given a week ago, and also had witnessed a close friend regain mobility when she was prayed over at a healing service after a serious stroke. They thought it more prudent to take James immediately to a faith healing service instead of putting James through multiple rounds of dialysis. Yet, Mike and Joanne agreed to return to the hospital after the faith healing services later in the week, and in hopes that James would be healed by then.

Two days later the family returned and was forced to place James on dialysis, as his condition had deteriorated. Mike felt perplexed and tormented by his decision to not treat James earlier. Had he not enough faith? Was God punishing him or James? To make matters worse, James’s kidneys had deteriorated such that his dialysis was now not a temporary matter and was in need of a kidney transplant. Crushed and desperate, Mike and Joanne immediately offered to donate one of their own kidneys to James, but they were not compatible donors. Over the next few weeks, amidst daily rounds of dialysis, some of their close friends and church members also offered to donate a kidney to James. However, none of them were tissue matches.

James’s nephrologist called to schedule a private appointment with Mike and Joanne. James was stable, given the regular dialysis, but would require a kidney transplant within the year. Given the desperate situation, the nephrologist informed Mike and Joanne of a donor that was an ideal tissue match, but as of yet had not been considered—James’s brother Samuel.

Mike vacillates and struggles to decide whether he should have his other son Samuel lose a kidney or perhaps wait for God to do a miracle this time around. Perhaps this is where the real testing of his faith will come in? Mike reasons, “This time around it is a matter of life and death. What could require greater faith than that?”

Thursday

MRI Imaging of musculoskeletal pathology – Image interpretation and evaluation.

These sessions will use case-based learning to explore the MRI imaging of a range of musculoskeletal pathologies.

Aim: To investigate a range of (primarily musculoskeletal) pathology using various MRI diagnostic images.

Learning intention:

By the end of this session, you should be able to:

Evaluate the use of MRI in the diagnosis of pathology in the foot & ankle

Preparation:

Revise the pathological features of the common arthropathies

Consider the pathological features of osteomyelitis.

Review and contrast the features of benign and malignant bone tumours.

Revise the pathophysiology of tibialis posterior tendon dysfunction.

Reading about MRI imaging as a technique with basic principles and the basic imaging sequences would be helpful. Some MR radiology of the foot would also be useful.

These are best achieved by referring to a standard MRI text and reading the relevant sections rather than a text solely dedicated to MRI of the foot as this would be a very good abbreviated summary rather than an exhaustive exercise.

An example would be:

Assessment details

Guidelines for the written assignment

A 3000-word written assignment will be due for submission on 6th December 2021 by 4.30pm via Turnitin

The assessment for this module is: a written assignment surrounding the use of imaging in practice pertaining to the students’ own area of practice

As students on several different pathways take this module, it is usually simplest to select a pathology or differential diagnosis appropriate to your pathway and discuss aspects of imaging appropriate to this complaint.

Previous examples have included osteomyelitis, tarsal coalition, metatarsalgia and so on. Importantly, the essay should demonstrate your conceptual understanding of imaging modalities. You should demonstrate how this awareness is used to inform decision making regarding different approaches to assessment and diagnosis of foot/ and ankle pathology using imaging modalities pertaining to your own area of practice.

All students will be expected to submit this assessment and pass to gain 20 level 7 credits.

The assessment must be passed at 50% or more for you to gain 20 level 7 credits.

Your assignment should cover all four learning outcomes:

Recognise and evaluate implications of the 2017IR(ME)R Regulations in their practice

Synthesise and evaluate a range of imaging techniques in the assessment, diagnosis and management of pathology of the foot and lower limb in the context of their professional practice

Critically evaluate the role of imaging techniques in their own clinical practice

Systematically appraise the governance issues that underpin the use of diagnostic imaging in practice

Suggested structure for your essay

Front page: this should include your student number, module code, module title, essay title and word count.

Introduction (300 words): this should outline what you will be covering within your essay and an outline of the clinical aspects of the conditions(s) you propose to discuss

Discussion (2400 words): you need to provide discussion which would be related to the learning outcomes (LOs) of this module

Examples for LO2 If you propose to use imaging modalities that expose the patient to ionising radiation what is the impact of the regulations on your practice as a referrer?

Examples for LO2 What imaging techniques would be suitable, outlining the advantages and limitations of the modalities you choose. Consider aspects such as accuracy, sensitivity and specificity, comparing different modalities where appropriate

Examples for LO3 How does imaging play a part in your practice, would this benefit from change/development?

Examples for LO4 What are the governance requirements around changes to practice? What audits of practice might be required? Is there a need for training and/or mentorship? What are the risks & how should these be managed?

Conclusion (400 words): draw some conclusions from what you have written within the essay

NB: Details of clinical treatments/intervention are not necessary, unless these specifically meet the learning outcomes

A published manuscript relating to Morton’s Neuroma that aligns closely to the module can be found here:

Santiago et al. 2018 Role of imaging methods in diagnosis and treatment of Morton’s neuroma World J Radiol. 10(9): 91–99

Further consideration

Your work should be well presented as appropriate for academic work.

You must use appropriate literature to support your arguments and demonstrate your critical thinking skills.

You must reference fully and throughout, using the Harvard style (guidance document is on HE730 module area > Study Materials > Supporting Materials).

If you include tables or figures, these should be useful as supportive material, they must be placed within the case study text, and you should refer to them in the text.

Your work must be within the word limit. Work beyond the 3000-word limit will not be marked as part of the assessment.

GV303-6-SP Electoral Behaviour 2020–2021

Assignment 2 – Reassessment

Word limit: 3000, excluding reference list.

In this assignment you need to apply the theories and models that we covered in lectures in order to predict or explain the outcome of a recent election(s). You should focus on electoral behaviour, vote choice, and the resulting vote or seat shares of political parties/candidates in the election(s). In this assignment, you need to take a close look at one electoral phenomenon and review the main factors affecting it. This phenomenon must be well-defined and presented as a question. For example, you can ask ‘Why did Labour do so poorly in the 2019 election?’ or ‘Who won the Dutch 2021 election?’ (Students must choose a different election to their original submission)

You are expected to (after presenting your question) present a thesis that answers the question and support this thesis with independent research. You should also build your thesis on theoretical arguments and empirical evidence from the academic literature you read (both from the syllabus and from you own independent research).

You are not expected to conduct any data analysis of your own, but you are expected to engage with existing data sources. That is, if you try to answer a question related to turnout in the United Kingdom, you should present a table or a figure with the relevant timespan, and if you have not created the table or figure you MUST give credit to the source with a proper citation.

Regardless of your question and thesis, your essay should include:

A clearly stated research question that motivates your essay. Make sure this question is clearly presented in the first paragraph of your essay and that it is appropriate to answer in a 3000 words essay.

A clear argument or thesis. Do not just throw information and words together. Make sure you explain your argument or thesis in the first paragraph of your essay and support it throughout the essay. The support for your thesis should be based on existing research and descriptive data.

A research based argument or thesis. In addition to being clear, your argument or thesis should be supported by academic research. You should read and cite at least seven academic resources that are not on the syllabus. That is, peer-reviewed articles or chapters from books published by a university press or major academic press (if you are not sure if a book or a journal is an academic resource, ask me). I strongly advise that you read (and cite) more than just seven resources on your topic, but seven is the bare minimum.

Professional bibliography. It does not matter which citation style you follow, but it must be consistent throughout the essay and the bibliography. Every resource you use must be cited in the essay (where appropriate) and in the bibliographical list.

No more than 3000 words. This is a hard word limit and I will not read more than 3000 words. The idea is to practice concise and clear writing. Your bibliography is not included in the word-count.

GSCM588 Article Summary Requirements General To write a summary, use your own

GSCM588 Article Summary Requirements

General

To write a summary, use your own words to express the main ideas and relevant details of the article you have read. Your purpose in writing the summary is to give the basic ideas of the original article. What was it about and what were the key points? In this assignment, it will also include a reflection and critique.

Article Selection

Select a specific article of interest to you on the topic of a quality management–related subject. Examples may be how a given quality related problem was approached or solved at a company, or how a method of quality improvement was used in a certain situation. You might want to review the text, lectures, and/or documents in doc sharing for ideas that interest you.

The article needs to be a scholarly, peer-reviewed article, which you can find by using EBSCOhost.

You also need to identify which of the course TCOs and specific topics in the Syllabus are related to the article you select.

Paper Format

All papers should be single sided, double spaced, and written in12-point Times New Roman font.

The paper should be between 3 and 5 pages, excluding the cover page, reference pages, and appendices.

The first page should include the title of the work; the student’s name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address; the course number; the date; and the instructor’s name.

Follow APA style for general format and citations.

Paper sections must adhere to the guidelines below and each section must be labeled in the text.

The language should be clear, concise, and precise.

The tone should be professional, consistent, and not filled with jargon.

Grammar and syntax (sentence structure) must be correct.

The report must be free of misspellings and typos.

Tables and Figures (if used)

All figures and tables must be referred to in your text before they appear on the page.

Figures and tables should appear on the same page that refers to them, or on the next page.

All figures and tables need captions. Captions go below figures and above tables.

Quotations and Citations

Quotations and citations are crucial components of a research paper.

Failure to properly cite research sources and borrowed ideas is plagiarism.

Papers submitted without citations and references will be returned to the student with no grade.

Refer to APA style guide for assistance with properly citing quoted and/or borrowed materials and ideas.

Your paper must include the following sections.

Reflection

20

In this section, you are to reflect on your learning from this assignment. Identify the areas that you found most interesting and also identify areas that you feel will assist you most in your career. In addition, provide a critique if applicable.

References and APA Format

5

Although it is recognized that there may be a limited number of references if any other than the article being reviewed, all references must be cited in two places: within the body of your paper and on a separate reference list. Choose references judiciously and cite them accurately. Cite all sources using APA format.

To use the ideas or words of another person without crediting the source is plagiarism. Plagiarism in its purest form involves copying passages either verbatim or nearly verbatim, with no direct acknowledgment of the source. The most common form of plagiarism is to paraphrase information from your source material. Paraphrasing does not relieve you of the obligation to provide proper identification of source data.

The best way to avoid plagiarism is to make sure all quotes, ideas, or conclusions not your own are given proper acknowledgment in your text. A key thought to remember is “If you did not write it, cite it!”

Also, all other aspects of the paper should conform to APA rules.

Hypothesis 1: eWOM is Positively Related to Destination Image

Electronic word of mouth is a negative or positive statement that describes an aspect of interest. The description highlights tourists’ satisfaction or dissatisfaction associated with a certain place of interest (Rosario et al., 2020). A positive correlation exists between the electronic word of mouth and destination image. The descriptive aspects associated with the electronic word of mouth highlight the probable satisfaction individuals will achieve as they visit. When a highlight of the benefits associated with a trip is communicated through any form by electronic word of mouth, there is a series of expectations created in an individual’s mind (Sanchez et al., 2020). When the party visits the destination of interest, they seek to satisfy their interests, primarily based on what they heard or saw through the electronic word of mouth description.

A decision by an individual to visit a certain destination of interest is informed by the reviews or highlights they have seen about the place. Famous tourist destinations are popular because of the description that various parties have about them. The descriptions are based on the aspects that are considered essential for a visitor’s satisfaction. Destination image is a product of a complex emotional process, whereby impressions are created in an individual’s mind about the attractive aspects of a place (Schwaighofer, 2013). When there is a similarity between an individual’s preferences and the destination, there is a high chance of having a favorable opinion. On the contrary, there will be a distorted destination image perception when there is no satisfaction associated with a destination. Electronic word of mouth is a great basis for creating a perception about a destination of interest. The descriptions and experiences are majorly determined by the information that an individual receives before deciding whether to visit a destination or not.

Based on the primary descriptive aspects, a positive correlation exists between electronic word of mouth and the perception that an individual gets about a destination. When individuals receive negative reviews about a destination, they will have negativity in hindsight, which adversely affects their satisfaction from vising the place. The prosocial behavior perspective supports the reviews communicated through electronic word of mouth among individuals. The benefits which other individuals get from others are the basis of prosocial behavior (Klein, 2017). When individuals communicate through electronic word of mouth, the primary aim is to inform other parties about the best way to get the best out of the resources at their disposal. The positive information about the qualitative aspects of a destination translates into a favorable opinion about the destination of interest. The information communicated is a reflection of the true aspects associated with the destination. When there is an unfavorable description, it will translate into a lack of satisfaction by an individual when they visit a particular destination (Cruz-Milan & Jimeno-Espadas, 2018). Thus, it is essential to note the positive correlation between the information an individual receives through various mediums and their perception of a place. The opinion formed by the individual is based on the information they receive, which in most cases is not biased because of the role played by prosocial behavior.

PART A: FREQUENCIES AND HISTOGRAMS (25 points)

Note: first read the posted textbook chapter (of Bluman); your solution should also cover the below mentioned steps:

PROBLEM 1 (25 POINTS)

The (rounded) average price for a box of cookies obtained from 28 bakeries is listed below:

40 23 11 20 22 20 45 15 28 21

22 20 50 19 22 28 25 19 23 47

45 15 30 10 40 15 17 39

a. Construct a grouped frequency distribution and a cumulative frequency distribution with 6 classes.

Note: give a brief explanation by specifying the covered steps.

Grouped Frequency Distribution

Step 1. Find Range

Step 2. Compute classes’ width (always round-up; if the width computation results in an integer, round it up to the next integer)

Step 3. Create class boundaries

Cumulative Frequency Distribution

Step 1. Find Range

Step 2. Compute classes’ width

Step 3. Find the frequencies and the corresponding percentage

b. Use Excel to construct a Histogram. (Tools Data Analysis Histogram for input range select the given values, for the bin range select the classes upper boundaries values check Chart Output).

PART B: DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS (75 points)

Note: Please round your results to 2 decimals; When the 3rd decimal is 5 or more you round up, otherwise you round down.

For example: 0.398 I rounded to 0.40; 0.3923 is rounded to 0.39

For two of the below problems, COMPUTE ALL DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS (WITHOUT using the excel’s tool “descriptive statistics”) – mean, median, mode, quartiles, range, inter-quartile range, variance, standard deviation, coefficient of variation.

An example of solution is given in problem 1 solution.

Remember two important things about typing in Excel: (1) to start typing, just click on the desired cell; (2) if what you type starts with “=”, it tells Excel to compute something instead of just displaying a value. When you want to enter a formula type “=” first. If you use an excel function, don’t type “=”; just click on the cell and next choose the excel function from the list of functions.

For the rest of the problems COMPUTE ALL DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS using the tool of your choice. If you use the excel tool “descriptive statistics” be sure you complete your solution by given the missing descriptive statistics (inter-quartiles, coefficient of variation). Double check the mode value(s). The excel tool gives only one mode value even if the set is multimode. Show the Excel output.

For only one of the problems (of your choice) convert the data to Z-scores.

You should always explain (comment, justify) the answers of your homework.

PAY ATTENTION TO THE SOLUTION OF PROBLEM 1

10; 8; 5; 2; 3; 3; 3; 6; 4; 2; 4; 5; 4; 4; 1; 0; 3; 5;

For computations done by hand, data must be ordered.

0 1 2 2 3 3 3 3 4 Median 4 4 4 5 5 5 6 8 10

Q1 Q3

Sample mean = =72/18 = 4 colds

Sample median = 4 colds (midpoint of data)

Sample mode = 3 and 4 (the value that occurs most often; this is a bimodal data set)

First Quartile (approximation) =

0.25 * N = 0.25 * 18 = 4.5; If the value is not an integer, we can round it up to the nearest integer 5 value is 3

Third Quartile (approximation) = 0.75 * N = 0.75 * 18 = 13.5 14 value is 5

Range = max – min =10 – 0 = 10

IQR = Q3 – Q1 = 5 – 3 = 2

Variance = s2 = = 96/17 = 5.64 colds squared

Standard deviation = s = = 2.37 colds

Coefficient of variation = CV = x 100% =2.37/4 *100% = 59.25%

To convert to a Z-score: Zi = (Xi – mean)/s

The 0 becomes (0 – 4) / 2.37 = -1.68;

the 1 becomes (1 – 4) /2.37 = -1.27;

the 2 becomes (2- 4)/2.37 = .84;

and the 4 becomes a 0; etc.

All values below the mean have negative Z scores and all values above the mean have positive Z scores.

This is the output from MS Excel using the descriptive tool. For your homework solution an output as the one below (for the excel solution) will be sufficient.

Quartiles are approximations.   A more refined definition is the following:

For Lower Quartile (25%):
 

Sort all observations in ascending order

Compute the position L1 = 0.25 * N, where N is the total number of observations.

If L1 is already a whole number (integer), the lower quartile is midway (average) between the L1-th value and the next one.

If L1 is not a whole number, change it by rounding up to the nearest integer. The value at that position is the lower quartile.

For Upper Quartile(75%):
 

Sort all observations in ascending order

Compute the position L3 = 0.75 * N, where N is the total number of observations.

If L3 is a whole number, the upper quartile is midway (average) between the L3-th value and the next one.

If L3 is not a whole number, change it by rounding up to the nearest integer. The value at that position is the upper quartile.

 

Please follow the above definitions in calculating the quartiles. There are two distinct situations: set size equal to a multiple of 4 (L is already a whole number – integer), set size not a multiple of 4.

Overview

It is not new to the healthcare field that over the past several decades the prevalence of obesity has hit an all-time high. Both obesity and being inactive increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancers, and as we age, this increases even more. Due to the abundance of education now on this topic, healthy eating and getting enough physical activity as we age have become more apparent. As we get older, diet can play a major impact on our physical and cognitive condition, bone and eye health, vascular function, and the immune system. This module will discuss the importance of setting goals with diet and exercise as we age and how this can impact our lives.

How did the Industrial Revolution change society?

Social change: The Industrial Revolution created a great deal of change in society. One major change was the shift from work by hand to work being done in factories. Which save time for the worker but also have the harsh working condition and working environment for the workers. During the 1800s, working people began to demand reforms. So, workers joined together voluntary labour associations called unions and unions engaged in bargaining with workers and employers to provide better working conditions.

The Song of Innocence And Experience By William Blake 1789.

The “song of innocence and experience” is an artistic work written by William Blake in 1789. Blake played an essential role in the romantic period and counter- enlightened thoughts through his poem. The book appeared in two phases, innocence and experience. These reflect two contrary human souls. In his poetic piece, the author personalized the figures of love, mercy, peace, and pity and listed them as the virtues of delight. Songs of Innocence Describe the happy, innocent perception in countryside life, on the contrary, Songs of Experience describe the realities of poverty and exploitation throughout the industrial revolution. Blake categorizes our modes of perception that tend to coordinate with a chronology that would become standard in Romanticism

1.Knowledge and Understanding

Explain various professional, legal and ethical issues associated with the auditing profession.

2.Skills and Abilities

Apply auditing standards and procedures to conduct an audit and communicate the findings in an appropriate format.

What am I required to do in this assignment?

You are the audit manager at Kargeen and Co and you have been provided with financial statements extracts and the following information about your client, Global Medico SAOG. Global Medico SAOG is an established pharmaceutical company listed on the Muscat Stock Exchange. The Company has for many years generated 90% of its revenue through the sale of two speci?c cough, cold and ?u medicines. The company’s financial year-end is scheduled at 30 April.

In recent years, Global Medico SAOG has seen a considerable rise in the level of competition that it faces in the pharmaceutical sector of Oman. Market size staying constant, the demand for its products has signi?cantly declined. Income has also fallen due to the adverse effect of two high-profile court cases, where Global Medico’s services to assist the prosecution were found to be in error. Not only did this lead to adverse publicity for Global Medico, but a number of clients withdrew their contracts with the company.

Global Medico has recently been experiencing trading difficulties. One of its major customers who owes OMR 0.6 million to Global Medico has declared insolvency and ceased trading. It is highly unlikely that any of these dues will be received. However, the balance has been included within the financial statements extract below.

A senior employee resigned from Global Medico, stating that lack of investment in new analysis machines was increasing the risk of incorrect information being provided by the company to its stakeholders. The General Manager, Sales has recently resigned from Global Medico and is yet to be replaced. This is getting delayed as the company offer letters have been rejected by a few candidates.

In the past, the company did not invest suf?ciently in new product development and so has been trying to remedy this by recruiting suitably qualified research and development staff. However, this has proved more dif?cult than anticipated. As such no product enhancement and development has really taken place in the past few years. However, they managed to recruit one staff member last week and they strongly believe that the new products which will be developed will also be ready for launch soon. These new launches will have a positive impact on trading levels and these will improve @ 25% minimum. They countered that by that logic the company is a going concern.

In addition to investment in recruiting staff, the company invested OMR 1 million in plant and machinery. The company wanted to borrow this sum but was unable to agree suitable terms with the bank as there is another pending loan. They, therefore, used its overdraft facility. As a result of the above the company’s overdraft balance has grown substantially. The directors have informed you that the bank overdraft facility is due for renewal next month and they are con?dent that it will be renewed.

Due to the cash crunch, the company has been generally slow in paying its suppliers and some of Global Medico SAOG’s suppliers have been paid much later than usual. Few suppliers have withdrawn credit terms offered and henceforth the company will be needed to pay cash on delivery to ensure smooth supply of its raw materials. Few suppliers are also threatening legal action to recover the sums owing. One supplier has filed for a claim of one million Rials.

Due to its financial difficulties, Global Medico missed a loan repayment and, as a result of this breach of the loan covenant, the bank has asked that the loan of OMR 4.8 million be repaid in full within six months. The directors have decided that in order to conserve cash, no final dividend will be paid for the financial year 2019/ 2020. The Directors have approached another bank for a loan to cover the previous loan and are hopeful of procuring the loan on release of the audited financial statements.

A cash flow forecast prepared internally shows Global Medico requiring significant additional cash within the next 12 months to maintain even the current level of services. The directors have produced a cash ?ow forecast and forecast as negative for the forthcoming financial year. The annual audit is now nearly complete.

Legal Definitions and the Courts,

In many ways, the legal definitions used by forensic psychology professionals are a reminder that the court system exists separate from the field of forensic psychology. Although the general public may use the term insanity to denote abnormal psychological functioning, it is actually not a psychological term but, instead, a legal term with a very specific legal definition. This week’s Assignment familiarizes you with two different definitions of the legal term of insanity and how, depending on which one is used, different court rulings may result. You also explore how legal definitions impact the role of the forensic psychology professional in general and in the courts.
To prepare for this assignment:
Review Chapter 8 of your course text Psychological Evaluations for the Courts. Pay attention to the American Law Institute’s definition of insanity, as well as the relevance and importance of legal definitions in the courts to forensic psychology professionals.
Using the Walden Library and/or the Internet, research the legal definition of insanity used in your state or locale of residence. Think about how the definition of insanity in your state is similar to or different from the American Law Institute’s definition.

Give proof outlines for each problem statement (in some cases, you must first decide what you want to prove). Formal proof is not necessary, just description of how you think it could be done.
1) Diagoalization – again. We consider that diagonalization proofs (also relatviz- ing proofs) depend only on:
Representation of every TM as a string (in some finite alphabet)
Ability of a TM to emulate any other TM with low overhead
(see page 73 Arora and Barak). Low overhead is described in Theorem : given a machine M that halts on input x in T steps, then a universal TM U(M,x) can emulate the actions of M on x with C*T*log(T) steps, where C depends only on the alphabet size, number of tapes and number of tapes of M. T is a function of x, but there is no additional effect of x on the time it takes to simulate.
Consider the Time Hierarchy Theorem (3.2). What would be the effect on this
If:
A – the time it takes to emulate M grew faster – for instance if it cost C*T^2 to simulate?
B – the time it takes to emulate depended on the data size x as well as on the structure of machine M? For example, if the simulation cost were C*T*log(T)*size(x)?
2) Karp reduction. A Karp reduction ?p of a problem A to a problem B is an algorithm that takes every instance of A and converts it to a special case of B in polynomial time, such that solving B gives the answer to A.
Prove that Karp reduction is transitive: if A ?p B, and B ?p C, then A ?p C.
Is Karp reduction reflexive? That is, given the statement above, do we have C ?p A? Prove your answer to this.
3) PSPACE completeness. A quantified Boolean formula QBF (page 83) is PSPACE complete. This is a standard boolean formula ? (using and, or, not and parentesis, with n variables xi ? {0, 1}, and n matching quantifiers Qi ? {?, ?} so we get a formula of the form: Q1x1 . . . Qnxn? . Theorem 4.13 (pg 84, Arora and Barak) says that TQBF, the language of all true QBF is PSPACE complete.
Is TQBF NP-hard? Is TQBF NP-complete? Why or why not?
4) Reusability. PSPACE is larger than P because space is reusable, but time is not. Assume we have data n, a time constructible function F(n) that uses at most C*n space for some constant C. Since space is reusable, the number of steps to compute F(n) can be larger than C*n. Does the upper bound on space imply an upper bound on T, even though space is reusable? Prove your answer, and if you say there is an upper bound, say what it is.
5) PSPACE and SAT. For some specific set of quantifiers, Q1x1 . . . Qnxn? describes SAT. What set of Qi has this property?
Suppose we have a specific Boolean formula ? with n variables but without quantifiers. Does adding a single ? quantifier make it easier or harder to find a solution? Does adding ? make it easier or harder? Why or why not?

Hello. I have ordered 2 pages (6 paragraphs) where I need your help on describing the different ways that subway tunnels (with an emphasis to Shanghai’s multiline subway tunneling) is related to geotechnical engineering. For example in one of the paragraphs you can talk about soil pressure, or the porosity of the soil, or the type of soil, each paragraph should briefly describe how it relates to it and the importance in real life (why should we care about it in other words). I have already completed a few paragraphs and I have attached the file below, this should provide you with a good example of how I want the paragraphs to be. Basically, all you have to do it continue with the document by adding 2 more pages (6 paragraphs = 6 slides). Please make sure that each paragraph has a title. Also, Please try to use a very few references (2-3) if no references at all. This should an explanatory paper/presentation. I basically want your experience to be present. For example if a student came to you and asked you how are subway tunnels are associated to geotechnical engineering, what are the components we should be careful and why? How will you explain it to him (as clear as possible) to make him understand based on your experience? That is the goal for this paper. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you for helping me out.[supanova_question]

Corporate Governance’s Role in Bank Failures

Corporate Governance’s Role in Bank Failures.

Larger shareholdings of lower level management and non-CEO high level management in the corporate governance and ownership structure of a bank significantly increase a banks risk of failure (Professor comments: As you write be open to the possibility of perceiving a thesis that asserts the causal mechanism behind the correlation. ) Core Source article: The Roles of Corporate Governance in Bank Failures during the Recent Financial Crisis by Berger An “analytical summary” is not a paraphrase and does not reproduce the organization of the article (except by accident). In fact, an analytical summary is not a summary of the article, but a summary of the argument. (In other words, do not write about the medium, write the message.)

Your summary should not include phrases like “In the first section of the article, the authors say . . . .” Do not write about the author’s rhetorical strategy — e.g., “The author says this to excite the reader’s interest.” Your focus must be on the logic of the argument. Your goal is to demonstrate a deep understanding of the argument. To do so, you must analyze its content: identify distinct components and the relations among them. Most importantly, you must find (or devise) a thesis that will allow you to reassemble the contents of the article into a coherent and interesting (non-obvious) argument. Writing an analytical summary is not easy. In fact, it’s nearly impossible until you have absorbed the article so thoroughly that it resides in your brain as a single, bright thought (“I’ve got it!”). Use: core source article In addition to clear communication of the reasoning extracted from the core-source article, your final paper will include an “extension”: a further development of some aspect of the core-source article.

This is your chance to demonstrate the depth of your understanding of the core-source article through the use of additional logic and/or evidence. This might be a refutation or elaboration of one element of the article’s thesis, making explicit how the additional observations support, modify, extend, or undermine the article. The sole purpose of the extension is further proof of your understanding of the core-source article. The extension should be about a single idea, developed in some depth, rather than a set of superficial observations. It is best that you base the extension on one or more relevant articles, which you will cite appropriately. Use: Merton, Robert C. (1977) “An Analytic Derivation of the Cost of Deposit Insurance and LoanGuarantees: An Application of Modern Option Pricing Theory.”

Discuss and analyze exemplary figures from ancient primary sources on the Romans

Discuss and analyze exemplary figures from ancient primary sources on the Romans.

Discuss and analyze exemplary figures from ancient primary sources on the Romans. For this term paper on exemplarity, choose at least three legendary/historical figures who appear or are discussed in ancient primary sources in the Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature, by at least three different ancient authors. The figures may be both Roman and non-Roman; they should be from various eras of Roman history or legend. Compare and contrast these figures in the ways they are exemplary. You probably will want to anchor your discussion by focusing on figures of a specific type, such as leaders or political figures, or women. Try to develop a subtle and interesting argument; consider also the various aims of the authors. Include a thesis statement at the beginning of our paper, setting out your argument, and specific evidence from the ancient sources, in the form of page citations from the Oxford Anthology of Roman Liturature [example: (OARL 483) ] for each of your examples, and maybe also quotations from the same text; avoid lengthy quotations. In addition, find at least one article, from the JSTOR database available through Hunter’s library, that relates closely to one or more of your exemplary figures (or to the ancient authors in which your figure(s) appear). Read the article and incorporate it into your paper, briefly mentioning the article’s contents and the author’s argument. Give a bibliographical citation for the article(s) at the end of your paper. (You may also wish to incorporate some of the secondary sources we have read, such as the World of Rome text, but that is not required.) (You may also want to discuss an ancient artwork in which the exemplary figure appears, discussing how the work expresses exemplarity – also not required.) Here is the book from which the bulk of the Citations must come from: > The Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature, edited by Peter E. Knox, J. C. McKeown Here’s a google books preview of the book that may have some of the pages https://books.google.com/books?id=FTNnAQAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage&q&f=false > The World of Rome, an introduction to Roman Culture edited by Peter Jones and Keith Sidwell You may want to read this article on Roman exemplarity, available through JSTOR: Roller, Matthew. 2004. “Exemplarity in Roman Culture: the Case of Horatius Cocles and Cloelia.” Classical Philology 99 (1) 1-56. I suggest looking into figures like Julius Caesar, Octavian/Caesar Augustus, and Nero for more ease since they are more known, try also looking into one of the Flavian emperors during the Roman Empire for a fourth and/or fifth figure (if necessary). There should be up to 4 to 6 sources in the essay, works cited page included, all of which would include the Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature, and perhaps the World of Rome book, if necessary.
