General Mills, the makers of Betty Crocker baking mixes and cereals such as Cheerios, had a contract with the local grocery store, FoodMart, where FoodMart would purchase boxes of cereal and various baking mixes for $1,475. General Mills shipped 35 cartons containing all the boxes of cereal and various baking mixes on September 23. When the manager, John, saw the cartons, he noticed that several of them were damaged. What are John’s options concerning the delivery of goods?
General Mills have included language on their Facebook pages and company sites that indicates that if you click on “like,” download coupons, or enter a contest sponsored by General Mills, you lose your right to bring suit against the company. In the event of any issues with the product, the coupons, or the contest, you must go to arbitration. Is this type of limitation on pursuit of remedies possible? Is the limitation valid?

Do films show “history” correctly? Can you believe what you are seeing/hearing in a film?

Assignment: Do films show “history” correctly? Can you believe what you are seeing/hearing in a film? You will select 2 modern films (from the list below) and write 2 essays that will analyze the historical content in each. For each essay, choose a film from the list below, but the 2 films you choose must be from different periods of time. Many of these films can be found on DVDs at JSU library, or on links through JSU library website, or on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. Follow the Instructions (below) to write an analysis of each film, and save each as a separate Word Document (doc). Proofread. Then, submit each of the two papers through Canvas, under Module “Written Assignment.” Your papers will be checked for plagiarism. Each paper must be in your own words, using research you have done yourself.Format: Each paper must be at least 2 pages of text (no more than 3) double-spaced, 1” margins, 12 point Times New Roman font. Each is worth up to 40 points. To complete portions of the essay, you will have to consult and draw information from the textbook and/or online sources.Instructions:Each essay must be a separate Word document. Each essay will contain six sections (paragraphs).Section 1 will be the Introduction. This will be no more than one or two sentences. The Introduction should explain the assignment (see above) and its goal to the reader.Section 2 will describe the setting of the film. This will include dates (exact as possible), locations (exact), characters, and the plot (briefly). This should be no more than half of page in total.In Section 3, you will choose one of the main (non-fictional if possible) characters in the film. Do a little research in the textbook and/or online to compare how he/she is presented in the film versus what we know about this person (or such a person) from historical records. This should be over half of a page.In Section 4, you will choose one of the minor characters in the film (maybe even one that never actually existed). Explain how the film uses that character either as a stereotype or as an example. You should consult the textbook and/or online sources about “the period” to create/confirm your ideas. Explain how the character’s words and/or actions fit the time period, or how the character’s actions seemed unrealistic. Consult with the professor (via email) if you feel unsure about anything here. Devote half a page to this.Section 5 requires you to state your own opinions. Think critically about the film. In what ways did you like or dislike scenes or plot in the film? Did certain scenes or characters prompt your interest in the subject? Was the artistic style of the film realistic/unrealistic? Maybe too modern or anachronistic? Be specific by giving examples. This should be no more than half of a page.Section 6 is the Conclusion. In one or two sentences, reiterate what you achieved in the essay.List of Possible Films: Choose 2 films, each from a different time period.Ancient, India and China:Quest for Fire (1981) Three bumbling Cro-Magnon men set off on adventure.Siddhartha (1972) An Indian prince yearns for a more fulfilling life, finds enlightenment.Confucius (2010) “Kong” advises war lords and starts a new philosophy for China.Hero (2002) The First Emperor of China hires an assassin to kill his enemies.Emperor and the Assassin (2000) Same incident as above, but shown differently.Ancient Hebrews, Persians, and Greeks:The Ten Commandments (1956) Moses and God teach the Pharaoh a few lessons.One Night with the King (2006) A Jewish woman is offered up to Xerxes, the Persian King.The Minotaur’s Island (2008, Bettany Hughes documentary) Explore the mysteries on the island of Crete.Troy (2004) Pretty Helen and Wimpy Paris cause a lot of trouble in Greece.The Odyssey (1997) Homer’s story of Odysseus trying to get home.

Rubric is attached as a guide as well.

This week your rotation assignment takes you to the Office of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

An external audit of the company’s financial operations has just been completed. Last week, an “early look” copy of the audit was sent to the CFO with a request for a formal written response for each of the findings. Some of the problem areas were known to the CFO’s staff and they were already working on the required responses. But, there is one set of findings that came as a complete surprise — Shadow IT — the unauthorized / unapproved use of cashless payment technologies by certain locations and offices within the company. These technologies included:

1. Micro payments using a payment card issued by guest services to hotel guests and via unattended vending machines to visitors. These payment cards are loaded with a cash value deposited to the card’s account via a credit card charge. Guest services also credits some of these payment card accounts with “reward dollars” for guests who belong to the hotel’s affinity program. The payment cards are used at service locations which do not have a cashier station. e.g. game arcade, self-service laundry or sales kiosk, etc. The payments are processed by a third party service provider which then uses an electronic funds transfer to pay the hotel its share of the income.

2. Mobile Payments for services booked through the concierge desk with an authorized but independent provider (not a hotel employee). These services include: private lessons with a tennis or golf pro, childcare, tours and tour guides, interpreters, etc. These payments are made by cell phone either as a mobile payment using a contactless payment system such as Apple Pay or by swiping a credit card through a magnetic stripe reader connected to the provider’s cell phone. The payment accounts which receive the guests’ payments are connected to the hotel’s merchant card accounts. The hotel pays the providers monthly via electronic deposit and issues an IRS Form 1099 to record the income.

The CFO must make a presentation to the IT Governance board about these payment systems as a first step towards either getting approval for continued use or issuing a “cease and desist” directive to force the rogue offices and locations to stop using the unapproved payment systems. The presentation must include information about known or suspected compliance issues for PCI-DSS. The IT Governance board has previously asked project sponsors for information about potential privacy and security issues.

Due to the size and complexity of the problem, the CFO has split the available staff into two teams. Team #1 will focus on the micro payment cards. Team #2 will focus on the mobile payment systems. You have been asked to join one of these two teams and assist with their research. (Note: you *must* pick one and only one of the two technologies to focus on for your discussion paper this week.)

Your team leader has asked you to read the provided background information (see the Week 7 readings) and then put together a 2 page summary of the important points from your readings. You have also been asked to help identify and describe / explain 5 or more privacy and security issues that could arise in conjunction with the use of the technology being studied by your team. Remember to keep your focus on the financial aspects of the technology implementation since you are contributing to the CFO’s effort. (Financial aspects include how payments are made, what types of information are exchanged and with whom, how that information is protected, etc.)

Provide in-text citations and a reference list at the end of your summary paper (APA format recommended).[supanova_question]

Paper Outline Template

For this assignment, you will develop an outline for your paper. An outline is meant to help you organize your points. Think of it as a skeleton that you will “flesh out” when you write your first draft. The more detail you include in the outline, the more likely you will develop a strong first draft. Further directions below:

You need to use a formal outline format; use the outline template provided below to help structure your outline.

You must write full sentences for the hook, the thesis statement, the topic/transition sentences, and the restatement of thesis.

Supporting points and details do not need to be full sentences. Think of them as bullet points that you will elaborate on when you write the first draft of your paper.

Any information that you take from your textbook or peer-reviewed articles, must include a citation in APA style, even if you’ve put the information in your own words (which you’re highly encouraged to do). Make sure to also include your own original thoughts throughout since you are trying to demonstrate YOUR interpretation of the academic material.

How to use the outline template: Erase each line before typing into the space. You may add or delete supporting points or details. To add, simply place your cursor at the end of a line, hit Enter, and you will see a new number or letter appear. To delete, simply highlight the line and hit Delete or Backspace.

Picket Fence Free Fall Picket Fence Free Fall Date of completing experiment:______________________

Picket Fence Free Fall

  Date of completing experiment:______________________

Group Members:___________________________________________

Picket Fence Free Fall

We say an object is in free fall when the only force acting on it is the Earth’s gravitational force. No other forces can be acting; in particular, air resistance must be either absent or so small as to be ignored. When the object in free fall is near the surface of the Earth, the gravitational force on it is essentially constant. As a result, an object in free fall accelerates downward at a constant rate. This acceleration is usually represented with the symbol, g (acceleration due to gravity).

Physics students measure the acceleration due to gravity using a wide variety of timing methods. In this experiment, you will have the advantage of using a very precise timer and a Photogate. The Photogate has a beam of infrared light that travels from one side to the other. It can detect whenever this beam is blocked. You will drop a piece of clear plastic with evenly spaced black bars on it, called a Picket Fence. As the Picket Fence passes through the Photogate, the photogate measures the time from the leading edge of one bar blocking the beam until the leading edge of the next bar blocks the beam. This timing continues as all eight bars pass through the Photogate. From these measured times, the software calculates and plots the velocities and accelerations for this motion.

Vernier computer interface

Logger Pro

clamp and ring stand to secure Photogate

Preliminary questions (Pre-Lab)…Formative assessment

Inspect your Picket Fence. You will be dropping it through a Photogate to measure g. The distance, measured from one edge of a black band to the same edge of the next band, is 5.0 cm. What additional information is needed to determine the average speed of the Picket Fence as it moves through the Photogate?

If an object is moving with constant acceleration, what is the shape of its velocity vs. time graph?

Does the initial velocity of an object have anything to do with its acceleration? For example, compared to dropping an object (from rest), if you throw it downward would the acceleration be different after you released it?

Procedure

Fasten the Photogate rigidly to a ring stand so the arms extend horizontally, as shown in Figure 1. The entire length of the Picket Fence must be able to fall freely through the Photogate. To avoid damaging the Picket Fence, provide a soft landing surface (such as carpet).

Connect the Photogate to the digital (DIG 1) port of the Vernier computer interface. Make sure all connections are complete (photogate to LabQuest or LabPro via BT Photogate cable and USB to computer before going to step 3).

Open the file “05 Picket Fence Free Fall” in the Physics with Vernier folder.

Observe the reading in the status bar of Logger Pro at the top of the screen. Block the Photogate with your hand; note that the GateState is shown as Blocked. Remove your hand and the display will change to Unblocked.

Click to prepare the Photogate for data collection. Hold the top of the Picket Fence between two fingers, allowing the Picket Fence to hang freely just above the center of the Photogate (see diagram above), without blocking the gate. Release the Picket Fence so it leaves your grasp completely before it enters the Photogate. The Picket Fence must remain vertical and should not touch the Photogate as it falls.

Examine your graphs. The slope of a Velocity vs. Time graph is a measure of acceleration. If the Velocity vs. Time graph is approximately a slanted (oblique) line of constant slope, the acceleration is constant. If the acceleration of your Picket Fence appears constant, fit a straight line to your data. To do this, click the Velocity vs. Time graph once to select it, then click Linear Fit, , to fit the line, y = mt + b, to the data. Record the slope in the data table. Remember to always title your graphs and then save it. Call it…”g Expt Trial 1”.

To establish the reliability of your slope measurement, repeat Steps 5 and 6 five more times. Do not use drops in which the Picket Fence hits or misses the Photogate. Record the slope values in the data table. Remember to always title your graphs and then save them. Call them…”g Expt Trial 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6”.

(Data) Analysis

From your six trials, determine the minimum, maximum, and average values for the acceleration of the Picket Fence. Record them in the Data Table 1 above.

Describe in words the shape of the Position vs. Time graph for the free fall. You may want to look at the Distance vs. Time graph to help you answer the question.

The graph is starting from rest, it is non constant motion its ganing speed by going down and its negative, it is also curved.

a. Describe in words the shape of the Velocity vs. Time graph.

– The graph is starting from rest, it is constant motion, it is also a straight line, and its also ganning speed cause its positve and going up

b. How is the velocity determined from the Position vs. Time graph?

0.1 – 0.2 divided by 0.06 – 0.11 = -3.343

c. How is the acceleration determined from the Velocity vs. Time graph?

O.6 – 0.1 = -0.5

0.05-0.10=0.05

divided =10

The average acceleration you determined represents a single best value, derived from all your measurements. The minimum and maximum values give an indication of how much the measurements can vary from trial to trial; that is, they indicate the precision of your measurement. One way of stating the precision is to take half of the difference between the minimum and maximum values and use the result as the uncertainty of the measurement.

Express your final experimental result in Table 3 as the average value ± the uncertainty. Round the uncertainty and the average value to one decimal place.

For example, if your minimum, average, and maximum values are 9.12, 9.93, and 10.84 m/s2 respectively, express your result as g = 9.9 ± 0.9 m/s2.

Next is the precision. This is done by expressing the uncertainty as a percentage of the acceleration i.e the precision of your experiment. To calculate the precision, divide the uncertainty by the average.

Enter the value of the precision rounded to the nearest whole number in Data Table 3.

Using the example numbers of 9.12, 9.93, and 10.84 m/s2 as minimum value, average value, and maximum value respectively, the precision would be

Acceleration: 9.8-9.4 divided 2 = 5.1

Precision: 48 X 100% =48% divided 9.81 = 4.8%

Make sure to record all values in their respective Data Tables above.

We did the Acceleration and Precision above !!!

Compare your measurement of g to the generally accepted value of g (from a Physics textbook or classroom Physics lecture). Does the accepted value fall within the range of your values i.e is 9.8 m/s2 between your minimum and maximum values of g in your table above? If so, your experiment agrees with the accepted value of g.

Answer: The measured value of g does fall within the accepted value of g or…The measured value of g does not fall within the accepted value of g.

9.6664 X 5.1 = 49.2 divided by 9.81= 5.02

Find the relative error, ER in your measurement of g using the formula:

ER =

Note: You’re taking absolute value in the numerator above…Hence, it must be a positive number.

Inspect your Velocity vs. Time graph. How would the associated Acceleration vs. Time graph look? Now, change the upper graph to Acceleration vs. Time. To do this, click the y-axis label and select Acceleration. You may want to rescale the graph so that the acceleration axis begins at zero. Insert your Acceleration vs. Time graph in the space below. Remember to always title your graph.

Use the Statistics tool on the Acceleration vs. Time graph to find the average acceleration. How does this compare with the acceleration value for the same drop, determined from the slope of the Velocity vs. Time graph? In the space below, record the value for the acceleration from the slope of the Velocity vs. Time graph and record the average acceleration from the Statistics tool on the Acceleration vs. Time graph.

Use anyone of your 6 Trials that is the closest in value to 9.8 m/s2. Begin with the phrase…

”For trial # 4 , the value for the acceleration due to gravity, g from the slope of the Velocity vs. Time graph is 9.722 m/s2 while the average acceleration for the same drop from the Acceleration vs. Time graph is 9.555 m/s2.

RESULTS: Write complete sentence(s). For example, “The results gathered from this experiment showed that the acceleration due to gravity near the surface of the earth is 9.31 m/s2 with a relative error of 5 % and a precision of 0.3%.

Thee results for the slope in the Velocity vs. Time graph is 9.722 m/s2 While the acceleration for the Acceleration vs. Time graph is 9.555 m/s2.

Conclusion: Write at least 3 paragraphs with a minimum of 10 complete sentences summarizing your experiment. Your final sentence should include a careful explanation of improvements/extensions to the methods used in this experiment that would produce a more accurate result.

You should begin by restating the objective (verbatim), summarize the procedure used to collect data in your own words, and state your results including precision and the relative (percentage) error, and then cite your CER.

Food access is largely overlooked. For example, food deserts and healthy food vs. fast food are not mentioned. What kind of food access do you think most people living in poverty have? They most likely dont have many options besides maybe fast food and more highly processed foods that had poor nutritional value.

There was little discussion of government supports. Go online and research what kinds of programs the government provides and how effective they are perceived to be. Record a one-paragraph summary of your findings. Theres alot of programs to help people in poverty but its really just not enough. I think the root cause is the really low minimum wage and high cost of living and food. Yes programs help but theres so many people struggling and are homeless. We need to have some type of food security and be able to provide some type of shelter for people.

How best do you think someone living and working in poverty can be supported? I believe it would be by increasing the minimum wage and creating new jobs.

This game was created and is played from the perspective of Americans. How do you think your experience with Spent would be different if it was from the perspective of someone in a less developed (consider less-resourced) country? They may be less inclined to purchase the more expensive items or services which could come back and haunt them later on when they might not have the insurance for the problem.

The game mentions mental health, but it does not really help us understand the significant role mental health plays in poverty processes. What impacts can mental health play? Well when your living on such a low wage, stress can be very high due to the amount of extra work you may have to do. Such as a job, taking care of children when you cant afford child care, paying for groceries, having maybe a unreliable car, multiple things can impact stress levels and its not a good thing to have in someones life.[supanova_question]

Abstract: Often during an outbreak of foodborne illness, there are health officials

Abstract: 

Often during an outbreak of foodborne illness, there are health officials who have data indicating that there is a risk prior to notifying the public. During the lag period between the first public health signal and some release of public information, there are decision makers who are weighing evidence with the impacts of going public. Multiple agencies and analysts have lamented that there is not a common playbook or decision tree for how public health agencies determine what information to release and when. Regularly, health authorities suggest that how and when public information is released is evaluated on a case-by-case basis without sharing the steps and criteria used to make decisions. Information provision on its own is not enough. Risk communication, to be effective and grounded in behavior theory, should provide control measure options for risk management decisions. There is no indication in the literature that consumers benefit from paternalistic protection decisions to guard against information overload. A review of the risk communication literature related to outbreaks, as well as case studies of actual incidents, are explored and a blueprint for health authorities to follow is provided.

Introduction

On June 2, 2008, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced its investigation of an ongoing multistate outbreak of human Salmonella serotype Saintpaul infections. CDC identified the consumption of raw tomatoes as the likely source of the illnesses in at least two states and a public advisory was issued (CDC, 2008). By the time the outbreak was officially declared over on August 28, 2008, 1,442 people had been reported infected, at least 286 people had been hospitalized, and the infection might have contributed to 2 deaths.

Despite the early identification of tomatoes as a potential pathogen source, jalapeno peppers were subsequently identified as the major source, with some implication of serrano peppers as well (Behravesh et al., 2011; Jungk et al., 2008). Was the public advisory to avoid raw tomatoes issued too early in the outbreak investigation, despite its intent as a control measure? Some, including the Florida Tomato Committee, may believe so, considering the outcome of the investigation: the estimated economic cost to the tomato industry was more than $600 million in Florida and close to $100 million in Georgia (Beach, 2013).

This outbreak is one of many examples that could be used to illustrate the difficulties in determining when to go public with food safety information about potential public health risks. In a 1999 news article about a Listeria monocytogenes outbreak, CDC foodborne illness epidemiologist Paul Mead summed up the conundrum that health officials face when reviewing preliminary data during an outbreak investigation: “Food safety recalls are always either too early or too late. If you’re right, it’s always too late. If you’re wrong, it’s always too early.” Go public too early, and make a mistake, and a corporation or industry’s reputation could unduly suffer. Go public too late, and individuals and businesses can be denied critical information they could use to protect public health.

Contributing to the difficulties is the lack of guidelines for health officials and the food industry on when to go public with risk information. Providing timely information is good risk communication practice. How to determine what is timely is often unclear. Each investigation is unique, nonlinear, and dynamic–and can involve a number of different organizations and various government departments (Health Canada, 2011). Communication with the public about risks, however, plays an important role in disease prevention (Liang & Scammon, 2011).

In 2012, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) identified weaknesses in the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) food advisory and recall process. According to the GAO report, FDA officials indicated that they use professional experience to look for a tipping point, defined as the time when evidence collected is sufficient to allow the agency to provide consumers with information that will help them avoid unsafe food (GAO, 2012). Without predetermined guidelines, determining the right time to provide the public with information becomes a subjective, rather than an objective, decision.

FDA is not alone in its lack of clarity on when to go public with food risk information. Dr. David Williams, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health during the time of a 2008 Listeria monocytogenes outbreak linked to Maple Leaf deli meats, stated that to wait until one has evidence beyond doubt “is often too late to protect the public.” Dr. David McKeown, Toronto’s public health medical officer during that time, remarked that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency often waits for conclusive evidence that a specific product is responsible for documented human illness before taking action (Parliament of Canada, 2009).

The intent of this special report is to contribute to the discourse on public risk communication related to foodborne hazards, and to argue for the establishment of guidelines for determining what is timely, the information content of going-public messages, and to aid public health entities in protecting consumers’ health.

Role of Risk Communication in Mitigating Foodborne Illness

Risk communication is an integral component of risk governance. Risk governance is based on principles of cooperation, participation, mitigation, and sustainability–and demands an approach that is guided by resilience, as well as knowledge management and exchange (Sellke & Renn, 2010). Information provision on its own is not enough. Risk communication should provide individuals with all the insights they need in order to make decisions or judgments that reflect the best available knowledge and their own preferences (Renn, 2009).

Communicators should explain what the responsible institutions and other relevant food chain actors are doing to identify, prevent, and mitigate food-related risks, as well as provide information on what self-protection strategies consumers can undertake (Cope et al., 2010). A national consumer survey conducted by Hallman and colleagues (2009) demonstrated that while the public values recall information, much of what is presented is either confusing (resulting in incorrect actions) or not heeded (because of optimistic bias).

To support consumer decision making, available information must support what consumers want and need to know, which might or might not be what information authorities want to relay (Harro-Loit, Vihalemm, & Ugur, 2012). Using a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, Cope and coauthors (2010) suggest experts perceived consumers as unable to conceptualize implications of risk and uncertainties of risk assessment, while the consumers’ perception was that institutions with responsibility for consumer protection deliberately masked the uncertainty associated with risk in order to protect vested and economic interests.

Trust is a key tenet of risk communication. Organizations can use open, transparent information and dialogue to build and sustain public trust. Communication begins even before a single word is said; the very willingness to engage in dialogue can set a foundation for building trust (Fischhoff, 1995). Yet public trust can be undermined by failures in the public’s belief in the competence and knowledge of authorities, their fairness and honesty, and their ability to communicate scientific information in a meaningful way (Abraham, 2011; Renn, 2009). Vos and coauthors (2011) noted that authorities often keep silent about a risk in an attempt to avoid raising public concern and generating panic. Accurate, extensive, and timely information is more likely to reduce anxiety, however, and to activate people in self-efficacy and protective measures. Funk and coauthors (2009) have shown that disease transmission risk management decisions are dependent on the quality of the information available and that the tendency to act is reduced with decreasing quality of information. The literature indicates that trust, timeliness, and the quality of information provided when going public are all factors in a consumer’s likelihood to act.

Defining Timely

The literature on what timely communication means or how it is measured is vague. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the principal agency for protecting the health of people in the U.S., reported that it “values the free exchange of ideas, data, and information, and doing so in a manner that is timely, responsive, and accurate” (HHS, 2017). The risk communication guidelines published by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) defined timely communication as “published as soon as practical” with respect to the release of risk assessment and related communications that may inform public decision making (EFSA, 2012). Other descriptions of timely communications have incorporated a sense of urgency in their descriptions. For example, FDA’s guidelines for industry call for the prompt issue of a press release in a situation where the product could pose a significant health hazard and the recalled product is in the hands of consumers (FDA, 2003).

Likewise, CDC has recognized that people want information immediately at the onset of a crisis. In 2002, CDC developed and adopted the integrative model of crisis and emergency risk communication (CERC). CERC provides six guiding principles for institutions or groups with official crisis response roles: be first, be right, be credible, express empathy, promote action, and show respect. The first of these–be first–acknowledges the importance of communicating information quickly; for the public, the first source of information often becomes the preferred source (CDC, 2016). This guiding principle of be first is not as explicit, however, as the response timelines of the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that target the provision of response-level operational communications in high-risk urban areas within 1 hour of an incident (FEMA, 2012).

Every outbreak and incident is unique, and any guidelines used to determine when to go public should be sufficiently flexible to adapt risk communications protocols on a case-by-case basis, while still providing sufficient structure to allow objective evaluation. Chess and coauthors (1988) argued that the early release of information sets the pace for resolution of the problem, protects an organization and authorities against loss of credibility and trust, allows for better control of the accuracy of information, and provides people with information that affects their lives. They cautioned that communities find it difficult to accept any justification for withholding information when health risks are involved, regardless of the risks. Generic guidelines for the release of information were suggested (Table 1).

Arguments Against Timely Disclosure of Risks

Protecting the Public From Information Overload

In March 2009, The Globe and Mail newspaper reported on an investigation by the Polaris Institute into bottled water use in Canada and the number of recalls of the product that had been issued by the Canadian government. Of the 49 recalled products, the Polaris Institute was only able to find public warnings issued for seven of the recalls. Garfield Balsom, a food safety and recall specialist at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, stated that there are no hard-and-fast rules on what requires public notification (Mittelstaedt, 2009).

There is no indication in the literature that consumers benefit from paternalistic protection decisions to guard against information overload. Good risk communication practice is to be open and transparent; withholding information, for whatever seemingly logical reason, denies consumers the opportunity to take measures to protect their health. The information might eventually leak out anyway, thereby undermining an organization’s credibility (Chess, Hance, & Sandman, 1988).

Unintended Consequences

On June 12, 1996, the Ministry of Health in Ontario, Canada, issued a public health advisory on the presumed link between consumption of California strawberries and an outbreak of diarrheal illness among some 40 people in the metropolitan Toronto area. The announcement followed a similar statement from the Department of Health and Human Services in Houston, Texas, which was investigating a cluster of 18 cases of Cyclospora illness among oil executives. By choosing to go public about a presumptive source during the early stages of the outbreak investigation, health officials took a proactive measure in the interest of public health. Two outcomes were possible: if it turned out that strawberries were implicated, the ministry made a smart decision, warning people against something that could hurt them. If the strawberries were not implicated, then the ministry made a bad decision, with the result that strawberry growers and sellers lost money and people stopped eating something that was good for them. By the end of August 1996, 1,465 cases of cyclosporiasis had been reported in North America, and traceback investigations had identified Guatemalan raspberries as the source of the pathogen (Manuel et al., 2000; Powell, 2011).

The limited research that has been carried out to assess the impacts of proactive measures to deal with defective products has yielded mixed results. Siomkos (1999) reported that consumers appreciate the recall of an unsafe product if the recall is decided spontaneously by the company and not imposed by national authorities. Companies that go further, taking aggressive action to recall the harmful product immediately–informing customers about what to do with the harmful product and being in constant contact with them–will rapidly recapture lost business (market) share. Claeys and coauthor (2012) called this form of proactive self-disclosure of a crisis “stealing thunder,” and found that it can be effective in minimizing crisis damage and maintaining the organization’s credibility.

Conversely, Chen and coauthors (2009) determined that, regardless of the company or product characteristics, proactive recall strategies had a more negative effect on company value than more passive recall strategies because stock markets interpret a proactive strategy as a signal that the potential harm from the defective product is severe. Ulmer and coauthor (2000) demonstrated that the strategic ambiguity employed by Jack in the Box’s corporate leaders in their crisis communications during their 1993 E. coli outbreak benefited their financial stakeholders over other audiences.

Consumer Misinterpretation or Lack of Understanding

Successful risk communication occurs when there is mutual learning, where the gap in knowledge between the information sender and receiver is minimal (Shaw, Takeuchi, Matsuura, & Saito, 2012). The information receiver uses common sense mechanisms to process the information and draw inferences, which is important for establishing risk perceptions (Renn, 2009). According to Andrews (2011), misconceptions about the public’s lack of interest or understanding of warnings and disclosures are common. If efforts are made, however, to accommodate audience characteristics, prior beliefs, message content, and proper delivery modes, warnings and disclosures can be effective communication tools and remedies for consumer and public health policy (Andrews, 2011).

Simply providing the data on potential risks is never enough. Putting out numerical or scientific information without appropriately framing the message and providing adequate explanation often leads to public confusion. Lofstedt and coauthors (2012) provided the example of medical data released through the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS). FAERS is a database that contains information on adverse event and medication error reports submitted to FDA. As a database, FAERS is designed to simply offer data. As a consequence, more than 25% of U.S. adults surveyed by the researchers indicated that they would stop taking their medication outright if it were posted on FAERS, and almost half would not know what to do. Lofstedt and coauthors (2012) advocated for the incorporation of sound risk communication strategies by FDA into its transparency efforts in order to communicate risks properly.

The Challenge of New Media

The Internet has erased the formal distinction between communicator and audience; there has been a shift in the balance of power related to voice. In traditional media, government or industry had greater control over how their message was prepared and conveyed, and who received it. Blogs and other platforms that support user-generated content such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter have created a conversation space where anyone can participate and the distinction between expert and layperson is erased (Abraham, 2011; Reynolds, 2011).

Effective communication about risks remains important; the advent of the Internet and new media simply shorten timelines dramatically. Kasperson and coauthors (1988) first formalized the theory of the social amplification of risk, which helped explain why minor technical risks become major public risks. New media accelerates the speed at which this shift can take place. Organizations that are not nimble in sharing information will lose their place in the dialogue and may be usurped by others who do not have the public’s best interest in mind (Reynolds, 2011).

Examples/Case Studies

In 2008, an investigation of a cluster of E. coli O157:H7 infections in California pointed to a single restaurant as the source (Marler, 2012a). The investigation led to linked illnesses in other states, causing investigators to suspect a common contaminated ingredient. Later, the same strain was found in an outbreak in Canada, where a traceback investigation led to lettuce as the source, which had also been supplied to the unnamed restaurants in California. Dr. Robert Tauxe, CDCs deputy director of the Division of Foodborne, Waterborne, and Environmental Diseases, defended the practice of not naming a company’s identity, saying it protects the public’s health and the businesses that could be hurt by bad publicity (Marler, 2012b; Powell, 2012). He argued that “the longstanding policy is we publicly identify a company only when people can use that information to take specific action to protect their health. On the other hand, if there’s not an important public health reason to use the name publicly, CDC doesn’t use the name publicly” (Marler, 2012b; Powell, 2012). It is not clear, however, what standards are considered to determine what is defined as an “important public health reason,” and why some identities are revealed and some are not. Tauxe acknowledged the lack of written policy and said it’s a “case-by-case thing” (Marler, 2012b; Powell, 2012).

An E. coli outbreak investigation involving romaine lettuce in 2011 also failed to disclose the identity of the responsible grower and distributors (Beach, 2012). FDA press officer Sebastian Cianci acknowledged they knew the farm from where the lettuce originated but didn’t want to implicate a specific member in the supply chain when they weren’t sure at what point the produce was contaminated (Beach, 2012). Many of the affected people reported eating from Schnucks salad bars, leading Schnucks stores to voluntarily pull romaine lettuce from their salad bars (PRWeb, 2012). By the end of the year Schnucks acknowledged they were “Chain A” mentioned in CDC reports, but they refused to name their lettuce supplier. The final CDC report issued in 2012, however, updated the number of cases and repeated previous statements, but still did not name the company involved (CDC, 2012; PRWeb, 2012).

In May 2012, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) refused to name a restaurant linked to an ongoing E. coli outbreak. Even though they sent an advisory regarding the outbreak to physicians, they did not alert the public (“DHEC Had No Business,” 2012). People used social media to demonstrate their frustration and demanded to know the name of the restaurant, posting statements such as, “I smell some hush hush money so the name doesn’t get in the public! Like others, I love Mexican food but not at the risk of my health. And if it’s so safe, why not release the name? Other Mexican restaurants may suffer loss of business because of this, including this restaurant!” (Chapman, 2012). After approximately a week, the name of the restaurant was released, only after the El Mexicano restaurant allowed the agency to release its name, raising questions as to the priorities of DHEC (“DHEC Had No Business,” 2012). DHEC assured the public that the restaurant was safe to eat at once again.

Evensen and coauthors (2012) documented an example of candor and openness in information provision that shifted public perception of the risk in question towards an improved understanding of the risk and its potential impact on human health. The authors described local residents’ anxiety about the sudden deaths of nearly 3,000 birds and countless fish in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Michigan, in 2006. People’s anxiety was eased by scientists sharing their knowledge about type E botulism in wildlife. The public’s concerns were addressed by information through multiple methods, including local newspaper coverage and public presentations by local experts. Communication by officials was immediate and direct, which helped to maintain public trust. Members of the public cited increased knowledge about botulism, its causes, and its effects, which helped to shift their concerns away from human and pet health toward an understanding of botulism in wildlife and the effect on environmental well-being.

Conclusion: A Blueprint for When to Go Public and What to Say

If foodborne outbreaks are not being publicly disclosed, or are not disclosed in a timely manner, how will people become aware that there are problems? Communication about foodborne risks allows the public to make informed decisions about what they choose to eat. Acquiring risk knowledge also allows the public to build risk literacy–the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and recommunicate information–that can facilitate efficient public risk communication when a crisis arises (Harro-Loit et al., 2012).

Public health officials have a challenging job: it can be difficult to discern true signals about an emerging risk from random noise. But establishing some ground rules–and publicizing those rules–would help build public trust. Past risk communication research has demonstrated that if people have confidence in the decision-making process, they will have more confidence in the decision. People might not agree about when to go public, but if the assumptions are laid on the table, and value judgments are acknowledged, then maybe the focus can be on fewer sick people.

Choo (2009) suggests that, in theory, a rational decision threshold could be set based on threat probability and a cost-benefit analysis of false alarms and actual occurrence. In practice, however, economic, political, and social forces–as well as by individuals, groups, and institutions that act according to their beliefs, values, and interests–influence when to go public.

We propose that communicators and public health organizations develop guidelines for public disclosure of risks based on the questions in Table 2. Clear, accurate, and timely communication with the public is an important public health function, and such communication becomes especially critical during public health emergencies. Communication is important for educating the public about steps that individuals can take to reduce the spread of infectious disease and to protect themselves.

Not naming the source of an outbreak or giving recall information too late affects the public’s trust in agencies. Furthermore, when the agencies themselves do not have a standard procedure regarding when to name or not name implicated firms in an outbreak, it seems as though the agencies’ priority is the firm and not public health.[supanova_question]

Assignment Question(s): (Marks: 5)

Over few years, there has been mounting criticism of the role and performance of rating agencies. The main recent criticisms concern their rating of complex securitisations and the role this played in the 2007-2009 financial crisis.

Critically examine the role of rating agencies in 2007-2009 financial crisis, examine problems associated with their functioning and comments on future scope you see for these agencies.

You answer should be in approximately 1000 words.

Answer:[supanova_question]

HISTORY 9D The word “op-ed” stands for the phrase “opposite the editorial

HISTORY 9D

The word “op-ed” stands for the phrase “opposite the editorial page.” That’s where newspapers frequently put them. It is a short opinion piece, most commonly about the news of the day but occasionally about the joys of Spring, the true meaning of Christmas, why everyone needs a dog, and the like. Here are three sample op-eds I have written:

https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2021-05-17/israel-is-having-its-own-black-lives-matter-moment

https://www.salon.com/2019/10/12/turkish-attack-on-syria-endangers-a-remarkable-democratic-experiment-by-the-kurds_partner/

https://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=11590484

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/11/opinion/assad-has-won-in-syria-but-syria-hardly-exists.html

So, now it’s your turn.

In a 600 word (about a paragraph over two pages) me an op-ed about what, you believe the Middle East will look like in the year 2030. You can take on any aspect, or several aspects, including (but not limited to):

Human security in the region

The possible effects of covid

Regional rivalries

The role of great powers like the United States, Russia, and China

Authoritarian governance

Popular resistance to authoritarian governance

The Israel-Palestine conflict

The Iran nuclear deal

The future of oil

Climate change

Refugees and IDPs

The end/resilience of pro-democracy movements in the Arab Middle East

How Joe Biden’s Middle East policy will affect the region

The effects of Donald Trump’s Middle East policy

How civil wars in Syria, Yemen, and Libya will turn out

The future of Lebanon

Anything else that floats your boat

Just have fun with it: It’s your opinion (although it should be an informed opinion).

Remember the following:

1. You should use Turnitin on the tenth week of the class website to “hand in” your paper.

2. You don’t have to footnote or link to online sources—this is your opinion and your reader knows the facts.

3. You don’t have to read anything other than the required readings (you’ll need to read The New Middle East: What Everyone Needs to Know as well as the last chapter in the MME). You should also draw from my lectures.

4. If you do decide to reach out for expert opinion, use the phrase, “according to” or something like it. And full name and title on first use.

5. Yeah, you know my politics. You can probably guess the politics of your TA as well. We don’t care what your politics are—you will be marked on how coherent and effective your argument is, not on whether you wear a MAGA hat or have an AOC bobble head figure (which I do). Trust me on this.[supanova_question]

Critical Thinking (Case study)

Volkswagen had a major push to sell diesel cars in the US, backed by a huge marketing campaign trumpeting its cars’ low emissions, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) discovered in 2014 that Volkswagen had deliberately installed cheating software in more than 500,000 diesel passenger cars sold in the United States. The software allowed the cars’ computers to sense when the vehicles were being tested for harmful emissions and to switch, undetected, to a driving mode that artificially reduced nitrogen oxide or NOx (linked to smog and lung cancer) so the cars could pass the test. Once back on the road, the computers adjusted the driving mode again, permitting drivers to experience the power and mileage the company was touting while allowing some cars to emit as much as 40 times the volume of pollutants permitted by law. Volkswagen had done the same in more than 10 million other cars sold around the world. The U.S. government’s case against VW resulted in a settlement of almost $15 billion and included massive repair and buy-back programs. Another $4.3 billion in civil and criminal penalties was levied against the company, some of which is to fund projects to reduce NOx in the air; eight high-ranking executives were charged with crimes, and two received prison sentences. The company lost more than a quarter of its market value as its stock price plummeted. How did a venerable and successful company come to commit what one business publication called “a truly brazen act of business malfeasance” in the first place? More stringent controls on NOx took effect in 1999, and of the two possible ways it could meet them, VW chose the one that did not require a costly reengineering of the interior of its cars. This might have seemed like the right business decision to make, but as a side effect, VW’s new NOx controls dramatically reduced the degree of fuel economy the company was advertising. It was apparently at this point that the decision to rig the cars to falsify emissions tests was made. Volkswagen’s financial performance has returned to pre-scandal levels even as the possibility remains that more huge fines will be levied, this time by European investigators. In early 2018, another scandal broke when the company was forced to apologize for exposing monkeys to engine fumes to research the effects of diesel exhaust. “We’re convinced the scientific methods chosen then were wrong,” said a company statement. “It would have been better to do without such a study in the first place.”

After reading the case study answer the following questions:

What are the fundamental ethical dilemmas faced by Volkswagen’s managers and how communication was part of it? (1 Mark)

Some of Volkswagen’s managers had to resign and, one manager spent time in jail due to their decisions. How could they avoid making this unethical decision? (1 Mark)

Quantitative Analysis

Plant Communication

Gorzelak et al. 2015

Explain what a mycorrhizal association is. Explain what is meant by plant behavior and give a few examples of plant behavior. Then, briefly describe at least three different, specific ways that mycorrhizal associations can affect plant behavior.

Babikova et al. 2013

Based on Fig. 1, describe the four different experimental groups the researchers used and how these groups relate to the research question and/or hypothesis. Explain what “headspace” is. Why did the researchers expose aphids and parasitoid wasps to gas samples from the headspace of the different plants?

Look at Fig. 2a. How did the pea aphids and parasitoid wasps respond to gases from the headspace of the donor plant that was infested with aphids? How did the responses of these insects on (a) plants with a hyphal connection to the donor plant and (b) plants without a hyphal connection to the donor plant compare to those of insects on the donor plant. Do these results support the hypothesis that plants can communicate through fungal networks to warn each other of aphid attacks? Explain.

Semchenko et al. 2014

What research question(s) was this paper investigating and what were the hypotheses? Explain the experimental design, focusing on the information presented in Fig. 1. What are “sibling” and “unrelated”, and what do the gray and white bars represent?

Explain what Fig. 1 is saying about how the application of root exudate affected specific root length, root branching intensity, root mass, and root length density in comparison to the control. Was this effect different when the exudate came from siblings vs. unrelated plants? Why might it be adaptive for a plant to change how fast it grows roots as a result of exposure to root exudates from other plants? Why might it be adaptive for this response to be different depending on whether it is related to the other plant?[supanova_question]

1 Writing a Children’s Book CADV 453: Autism and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders

Writing a Children’s Book
CADV 453: Autism and Other Neurodevelopmental Disorders
Dr. Nancy Miodrag

Purpose
The purpose of this assignment is to apply the developmental concepts and constructs that you have learned about children with ASD and other neurodevelopmental disorders into an applied format: you will plan, write, and illustrate your own children’s book.

There are many steps to writing a good children’s book. Follow them here:

Review some illustrated children’s books in the field to gain an understanding of the creative process and the elements that help make a children’s book successful. 

See what others have done. When you visit the Amazon website (be sure to change the search menu to Books), you might notice that your idea has already been published. That’s not exactly bad news. It suggests there a niche for the topic. Add a twist that will make your story unique – Surprise ending? Unique to your population (e.g., children with a rare genetic disorder)? Maybe there is a unique character? Be creative! 

Choose a topic. What really interests you? Then narrow that topic down even more. Be sure that the topic relates to the course concepts and materials in some way. We cover a range of developmental disabilities and topics.

Decide on the age group you will write for. Must be for at children between 5-18, but you should specify which range. Is it a children’s picture book? A more advanced children’s book? A graphic novel or comic-type book for older children?

Figure out how long the book should be. Length should coincide with what age range you’re writing for, and then write within that word count. A general rule of thumb: Ages 4-8 (older picture book that has more complex work structure and vocabulary); Ages 5-10 (chapter book); Ages 10+ (you could do a comic-type book or graphic novel). 12-20 pages is a good estimate for a picture book, but do not be wedded to this range. You must however, have a minimum of 12 pages.

NOTE: You cannot write a book for infants/young toddlers.

Start drafting.

Children’s book authors often employ literary tools to help make the story more vivid in the readers’ minds. Commonly used literary tools are rhythm, alliteration, repetition, refrains, onomatopoeia, simile, personification, rhyme, and imagery. Remember that your book needs to be developmentally appropriate (i.e., think about Piaget’s stages of cognitive development here), so give this some critical thought.

Your children’s book must be appropriate for… children! If you don’t want the audience to get young children, then choose the comic book format or graphic novel, which is appropriate for older children.

Your book must have at least one developed character.

Your book must have a basic plot line or a developed idea.

Your book should have dialogue or character interaction.

Your book must have a goal. Choose one of the following: (1) teach a lesson, (2) teach a task, or (3) tell a story.

Add a Table of Contents if the book is for older children only.

Your book will follow proper book format. Have (a) front cover, (b) content pages (yours will be in the format of PowerPoint slides), (c) Resource for Adults page, (d) Concepts Page, and (e) back cover.

Concepts Page: Choose 3 concepts from the course and describe how each concept relates to your book. The concepts can be from lecture, from the Volkmar book, or from any articles I assigned.

Dedication: Include an acknowledgement and/or dedication page.

Resource for Adults Page: You will dedicate one page at the end of your book. Call it Resource for Adults: This page is to guide adults about the subject matter. It is not part of the actual story. For example, if the book is about sibling rivalry that stems from one of the siblings having a disability, then the resource page will outline strategies for managing conflict amongst siblings, provide helpful tips, give suggestions about what to stay/what not to say in these circumstances, and citing resources that caregivers/teachers can access. Be creative and add what you believe adults would need based on the topic you chose. You cannot simply list resources. You must write this in paragraph format.

Include an About the Author page. YOU are the author!

Reflection: Reflect on what you learned writing your very first children’s book – who will you share it with? What challenges did you face? Where did you draw your inspiration from?

Images: Graphics/illustrations/picture/: Create original graphics using a graphics program like Publisher, draw original graphics/illustrations and then scan the images, search the internet for pictures. Use pictures of your family/friends/events ONLY IF THEY GIVE PERMISSION. If you use an image from an internet source, be sure to cite the source of the image on the PowerPoint slide with the image. As you are not actually publishing this book, you will not be infringing upon anyone’s copyright illustrations found online.

Format: You must use Microsoft PowerPoint to create your children’s book. Your PowerPoint slide deck will be the pages in your book so each “page” should include text (a part of the story) and a graphic/illustration/picture. You cannot use Microsoft Word. Do not use google docs that I then need permission to open. Do not use Prezi. Do not use other funky programs. Just PPT.

What to remember as you develop your book

Grab the reader’s attention in the first page or two! The idea/plot/story needs to be a hook, line and sinker. The pacing should be fast. You do not have lots of pages so get to the point. The plot/story should be focused on topics related to ASD or other disabilities (see list on Canvas). Provide a satisfying conclusion and wrap up all the storylines.

Make every single word, every single phrase, every single sentence matter.

Choosing a title might be the most important thing you do. Your goal is to give enough information that the person picking the book up to say, “Huh, that sounds interesting/relevant/important to me- I want to read it”.

Some picture books have an illustration on the front cover that presents the main conflict or point of the story.

Have fun with this! When else will you become an author?

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.

One of the first moves taken by Hamza was doing away with the formal dress code for its employees. The employees were free to wear jeans and T-shirts instead of attending the office in formals with ties.

“Play Win needed a dressing down,” said a Play Win employee, referring to a change in dressing policy. Many internal processes related to employees had also been made simple. A female employee seeking extension of maternity leave could just inform the manager through mail, without giving any “verbal explanations.”

Also, the complex procedure an employee had to undergo while applying for a transfer to other location was simplified. The company also “institutionalized family events of its employees including carnivals for their children.” The company motivated its employees to take part in decision-making process at “many levels.” And the CEO constantly communicated with employees through blogs, town halls and social media, besides giving prompt replies to employee issues posted on Balm, the company’s communication platform.

“He participates in conversations, and joins groups of his interest. And we are encouraged to learn from each other,” said Fatima, a Play Win employee, according to the News Daily.

Owing partly to the initiatives taken by Hamza, the company was able to reduce its attrition rate, once the highest in the industry, to 14.2% in the June quarter from 23.4% in the same period of the previous year.

One of the key changes brought in by Hamza were seeking more “employee engagement” in generating ideas for the company. He rolled out a programme called Help Us, targeted at “crowd-sourcing ideas from employees.” About 26,000 employees took part in the initiative, sharing 2,650 ideas. The company had shortlisted ten ideas for execution based on employee voting.

“Ibraheem had shared a simple template that anyone — from any function, however junior or senior — could use to bring in innovation to anything he/she did. Suddenly, innovation is no big deal. It feels great to know that we are in some way part of a great renaissance at Play Win. From being simple 9-to-5ers, we’ve become people on a mission,” said Play Win employee Hajra.

FIN4432 Stock Project _________________________________________________________________________ Analysis of risk and return, portfolio diversification Here

Professor’s Instructions: This assignment is a research paper, not an essay, and as such, you are expected to research FIN4432 Stock Project

_________________________________________________________________________

Analysis of risk and return, portfolio diversification

Here you will apply what you have learned about portfolio theory. Use the monthly-adjusted closing prices for IBM, MSFT, And the S&P500 during the five-year period from January 2013 – December 2017 in the file “Stock Project Stock Prices” posted on Canvas. Calculate returns for each month for each of these three assets (Stock 1; Stock 2; S&P 500).

Exercise 1:

Calculate the following for each asset (in Excel, using the statistical functions given in parentheses): average return (AVERAGE), standard deviation of returns (STDEV.S), and variance of returns (VAR.S). What is the covariance (COVAR.S) and correlation (CORREL) between the returns of stock 1 and stock 2?

Exercise 2:

Calculate the return and standard deviation of a portfolio that holds these two stocks in the following weights: 0%-100%; 10%-90%; 20%-80%; 30%-70%; 40%-60%; 50%-50%; 60%-40%; 70%-30%; 80%-20%; 90%-10%, 100%-0%. Plot these portfolio return / standard deviation combinations. Make sure return is on the vertical axis and standard deviation is on the horizontal axis. (Important: use a scatterplot) (You may use excel for this part)

Exercise 3

1. Which specific combination would deliver the least amount of risk? Use the formula for the minimum variance portfolio (show your work by hand) to get the exact weights, calculate its return, standard deviation and Sharpe ratio (show your work by hand), and mark it by hand on your plot printout.

2. Calculate the optimal risky portfolio’s weights (show your work by hand) in the two stocks. For this optimal portfolio, calculate the average return, standard deviation, and Sharpe ratio (show your work). Mark the ORP on the plot printout by hand. Draw in the CAL (by hand) that gives you the best risk-return combinations, given that the monthly risk free rate is 0.15%.

3. Mark the spot on your return / standard deviation plot where the market index (i.e. S&P 500) falls.

4. For a moment, assume the correlation between the two stocks equals exactly +1. Graph the investment opportunity set. (Hint: This does not require any additional excel work or calculations)

5. Now assume the correlation between the two stocks equals exactly –1. Again, graph the investment opportunity set. If you would like, you can perform steps 4 and 5 on the same graph.

What to turn in: A PDF copy of your plot, results, and detailed analysis — this means you should clearly show all of your work! Write out all equations that you use, with the exception of those that are functions in excel such as AVG, COVAR, VAR, etc. For example, you need to write out the equations for portfolio weights, returns, standard deviations, and sharpe ratios for your calculations in determining the MVP and ORP.

Writing Assignment #4

Research-Based Report to a Decision-maker

Summary of assignment

Task: You write a report that does the following:

defines a problem persuasively and accurately

proposes a solution or solutions to the problem or issue

presents that solution to a decision-maker or group of decision-makers who can implement the recommendation

Topic: You will choose the same topic on which you wrote the memo for writing assignment #3.

Format: Your sources will be cited and listed in APA format.

Writing Process: You will submit a first draft of the report to the assignment folder. The first draft will be given comments by the instructor. After receiving comments from the instructor, you will submit a revised draft. The final draft will be graded.

If you do not submit a second draft, the first draft will be graded.

Components of the report:

title page

letter to the decision maker (this can be a business letter OR a memo)

executive summary

table of contents

introduction

body of the report to include headings and subheadings

conclusion stated as a recommendation for implementation of the solution

References page, with references listed in APA 7th Edition format

Any appendix (or appendices if there are multiples)

Secondary Sources

ONLY SECONDARY SOURCES are to be used for the WRTG 394 research report.

The complete report should also cite at least NINE secondary sources. At least FIVE of these secondary sources should come from peer-reviewed, scholarly journals.

As noted above, your secondary sources will be integrated into the paper to explain the problem, to provide evidence of the problem, and to support the solution.

You might have taken WRTG 393 at UMGC. In WRTG 393, the final paper is a white paper. This assignment is different from the white paper in WRTG 393.

(You did advise Maya that she needs to be “employed” as an employee of the company, and start receiving a regular paycheck because the IRS always frowns upon privately-owned companies that do not have regular payroll and payroll taxes…. She said she will think about this.)

11/30/2020: You bill Davis Designs for your services, $450. You are not an employee, but instead a business that bills clients by the hour.

PART 2: TRANSACTIONS AND LEDGERS – DECEMBER 2020

Record the transactions below in the journal; post the entries to the ledgers; find the 12/31/2020 ending balances for each account.

12/1/2020: Davis Design receives $2,900 from its customer, Bradley Earl Inc., for work that Davis Designs will perform on December 19th.

12/2/2020: Davis Designs pays the bundled utility bill.

12/3/2020: Davis receives payment from its customer, Epicenter Construction.

12/31/2020: Davis Designs pays Maya Davis a salary of $5,000 for the month of December. The federal income withholding tax withheld from Maya’s paycheck was $860. FICA-OASDI is 12.4%, of which half is withheld from Maya’s pay, and the other half is paid by the Employer. Also, FICA-Medicare is 2.9%, and the same rule applies: half comes from Maya’s paycheck and half paid by Davis Designs. FUTA is .6% (decimal form, .006). Ignore SUTA. The payment to the IRS for the payroll taxes will be made 1/20/2021.

PART 3: UNADJUSTED TRIAL BALANCE, ADJUSTING ENTRIES, ADJUSTED TRIAL BALANCE

Prepare the Unadjusted Trial Balance. Make the Adjusting Entries and update ledger accounts. Prepare the Adjusted Trial Balance.

Davis Designs will use the “Percentage of Credit Sales” estimation method for estimating the uncollectible customer accounts. The percentage Davis thinks is appropriate is 2%.

Depreciation: the company will depreciate assets straight-line for 6 years, with NO residual (ie, salvage or trade-in) value. Remember to take into consideration the timing of when the assets were received and adjust for part-year, and part-month. Round to the nearest whole dollar.

Took a count of office supplies; the office supplies on hand at 12/31 were $160.

Look at the Unadjusted trial balance. What other accounts need to be adjusted?

PART 4: FINANCIAL STATEMENTS, CLOSING ENTRIES, POST-CLOSING TRIAL BALANCE

From the Adjusted Trial Balance in Part 3 of this project, prepare the Financial Statements (Multi-step Income Statement, Statement of Retained Earnings, Classified Balance Sheet, Statement of Cash Flows, indirect method). Next, prepare the closing journal entries. Finally, update the Ledgers and prepare the Post-Closing Trial Balance.

Everything that you need for this final part of the project is in chapter 3, and see also chapter 12 for the Statement of Cash Flows.[supanova_question]

The second paragraph of the body is more reflective in nature. This is where you will discuss your specific connection to this technology. For example, do you use it in the way that it was intended to be used?
Give the five ideas from Postman their own paragraphs. In these paragraphs briefly explain the relevant “idea” and illustrate this idea with examples that go beyond the Postman article and your own specific technology.

Finally, explain how your specific technology reflects Postman’s ideas.
End the essay with a one-paragraph conclusion (offering no new information) and a Works Cited.
To facilitate the successful completing of this assignment, it is broken into four parts:
Topic Selection (5% of course grade)
Technology Paragraph (2.5% of course grade)
Postman Paragraph (2.5% of course grade)
Final Essay (20% of course grade)

Format:
Essays will need to be at least two full pages. This is just a minimum. A two-page essay is an equivalent of surviving on nothing but bread and water. You can do it, but you probably will not be happy with the results. Failure to meet the two page minimum will result in a 10 point penalty. (The heading and initial spaces will not count towards the two page length of your essay. I want to see at least two pages of actual essay)
Each essay should be a Word document, double-spaced, and in a 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Use 1” margins for the essay. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in a 10 point penalty.
Use correct spelling and grammar and write in complete sentences. This is an essay, so, you will also need an introduction (with an appropriate thesis that provides all of your assertions), a conclusion and supporting paragraphs (meaning each paragraph should support the thesis made in your introduction).
Submission:
Essays must be submitted through the appropriate assignment link as a Word (.doc or .docx) attachment. I encourage you to also copy and paste your essay into the text box as a back-up.
No late essays, even one second after the deadline, will be accepted. You may submit your essay at any point from the beginning of the course until the due date. That means that there is no excuse for not getting your essay in on time. Plan for the unexpected and submit your essays early. Review the FAQ for more information on this.
Citation:
This is not a typical research assignment, but resources are needed to complete the task. You may use the course resources or others that you find helpful to accomplish this assignment. The resources used need to be reputable though. Consider the CRAAP tool I have made available. It goes with out saying that sources like Wikipedia are a no go.
Since this is an interdisciplinary course, use MLA citation rules. Some information on this citation method can be found at the Purdue Online Writing Lab:
Improper citation methods may result in up to a 10 point deduction. Straight plagiarism may result in a 0 for the assignment. Use quotation marks for exact words from resources and make sure the source is clear. Use parenthetical citations (In-text citations: Author-page style) for direct quotes or paraphrased ideas.
Make sure a works cited is included.

1. Consider three jobs you know well, using the big 5 model from the course textbook of personality, explain the personality traits necessary for each job (e.g., police officer; openness-moderate, contentiousness-high, extraversion-moderate, agreeableness-low, neuroticism-Low). After examining these three jobs, can you see why you may or may not have been a good fit?

2. People often neglect to consider their own values influence their feeling of fulfillment in their career. If someone feels unfulfilled in any of the basic work values (achievement, comfort, status, altruism, safety, and autonomy) what can they do outside of work to keep their life in balance?

Organizational Structure and Culture MOD3 CA3

Organizational Structure and Culture MOD3 CA3.

I’m studying for my Business class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

Module 4 – Case

ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE AND CULTURE

Assignment Overview

The format of this case differs from the previous three modules and resembles more closely the format of assignments you will see in many of your courses going forward. This is not to say that you should abandon what you have learned about the analytical process of alternating between the abstract and the concrete, the reflective and the active, but this paper will not follow the format of a section on concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract conceptualization, and active experimentation. Each of these aspects of analysis should be present, but integrated into the paper as a whole, rather than broken out into distinct sections.

The topic of this case is organizational design. To complete this assignment, we will begin as before, and you should identify an organization you know very well. Then conduct your analysis by addressing the topics below. Do not line up the questions and address them one at a time as in a short-answer test, but rather integrate them into a single coherent commentary and analysis of the organization. A critical part of successful completion of this assignment is for you to demonstrate your ability to employ the concepts introduced in the background material in describing and evaluating the effectiveness of the organizational design. To do this, you will need to draw on the concepts from at least three readings/videos. This paper should be 4-6 pages long.

Case Questions:

  1. Diagram the formal structure of your organization. Identify the various management positions or titles on the chart and indicate the positions/jobs that would report to each. Identify the various management positions or titles on the chart and indicate the positions/jobs that would report to each.

    SmartDraw.com (https://cloud.smartdraw.com/) provides free examples, though others are also available via Google. PowerPoint also has templates for organizational charts you can use.

  1. Describe how work is divided (specialization and departmentalization), coordinated (chain of command and span of control), and controlled (centralization and formalization). Is the structure more mechanistic or organic?
  2. Describe the informal structure of the organization. How does work actually get done?
  3. How does the organization deal with the differentiation-integration issue?
  4. Having completed this analysis, identify three strengths and three weaknesses of the organizational design.
  5. If you could suggest one major improvement to the organizational design, what would it be?

Assignment Expectations

Your Case paper will be evaluated using the criteria on the assignment rubric (see the rubric for more detail): Assignment-Driven, Critical Thinking, Business Writing, Effective Use of Information, Citing Sources, and Timeliness.

Instructions:

First, use the Galen Library database of your choice article, which was chosen during your Week 5 discussion. This creates one less step for you in having to find an article fitting your topic choice. If you chose a different article that is your option, but you must use the Galen Library databases for this assignment. Then, complete the following steps:

Begin with an APA-formatted title page. See template above ^
Beginning on page 2, start your 500-word article summary that includes a topic sentence.
An academic summary focuses on identifying the most important article and relating those facts in APA format. You can use your Academic Writer account for help with the APA format.
The topic sentence should tell readers the title of the article and what you’ve determined the main point of the article to be. This paper should be an attempt at formal, academic writing assignment using APA style. View the following sample paper to guide your APA formatting: Sample APA Style Paper (Links to an external site.).
At the end of your summary, insert a page break to create your References page. Since you’re going to be summarizing an article that has been published in an academic journal and you’re going to have found that journal in one of Galen Library’s online databases, the citation on the References page will be written as follows:
AuthorLastName, AuthorFirstInitial. (Year). Title of the article using sentence capitalization. Name of Journal Using Title Capitalization, volume#(issue#), page range of entry. Retrieved from

Ex:

Jackson, S. (2017). The stages of patient admission. Journal of Nursing, 7(1), 45 – 48. Retrieved from https://galen.ebsco.com

Items of note:

For the volume and issue number, you’re just listing the numbers.
The volume number will be italicized, but the issue number will not be italicized.
Use sentence capitalization for the title of the article; that is, you’re only going to capitalize the first word of the title and any proper nouns.
This document should be formatted according to APA standards:

Times New Roman, 12pt. or Calibri, 11pt. font
Double-spaced lines for the entire document
1″ margins for the entire document
First-line indent for all new paragraphs
Title page in 7th edition APA format
Page numbers on all pages
