Scholar of Change Video#4 – Coding

I chose the fourth week social change video (Topper, 2016) produced by Christine Topper, a doctoral student in educational psychology. In her video, she shares about the lack of green spaces for children, families and people in the immensely dense city of Hong Kong. As an international teacher in this “vertical city” Topper (2016) shares that there is a lack of access to open green space to play and grow food in to allow communities to connect with nature. She continues to speak of the term, Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD), coined by Richard Louv (2005) states that with the increase of technology and reduction of green open space to play, children are lacking opportunities to be and grow in nature. Topper ( 2016) was determined to change that and partnered with an early childhood educator to create a rooftop micro-green garden for the children to experience every part of the process of growing food and be surrounded by green space.

Saldaña (2016) explains that coding in qualitative inquiry is a word or short-phrase that summarizes the sentence or information in a brief and direct way that describes the essence of the content in a clear and simple way. Being an early childhood educator myself, I was drawn to this video because I knew of Louv’s work, interested in environmental initiatives. As a professor of early childhood education, we teach our students to ask open-ended questions to children to create two way communication, ignite curiosity, and increase critical thinking skills.

I was happily surprised to read that another coding process, what Saldaña (2016) calls “ Initial Coding” is a word or short phrase of the coder’s first impression. I was also interested in, “In Vivo Code,” Saldaña (2016) where the code includes direct quotes as I often annotate children’s art work. I gravitated to both of these types of coding because I am familiar with and have practiced aspects of this coding process but not formally and never knew the terms for coding. Example of what Saldaña (2016) called “ Initial Coding” is a word or short phrase of the coder’s first impression.

CHRISTINE TOPPER: 1 Nature deficit disorder is a real social problem in a big city like Hong Kong. 2 I decided to conduct an independent research study looking for ways to address nature deficit disorder.3 Building on the rooftop greening project an early childhood teacher and myself started a sustainable micro-garden for the kindergarten students in the outdoor play space.

Scholar of Change Video #2

The scholar of change video I chose for this discussion was #2 Scholar of Change Video by Wisconsin mother, nurse and

advocate against drug addiction, Jakie Kundert (Kundert, 2012). In her video made in 2012, Kundert noted that the opioid problem

had made its way to her small town and what was once “a big city problem” was now in small towns like hers across the country.

The opioid addiction crisis became a crisis of her own when her son became addicted to heroin. Another mother from the same

town shared the story of the loss of her son to a heroin overdose and how it impacted her. Jakie Kundert desired to create

awareness and change in her small town through her non-profit organization, F.A.I.T.H. (Fighting Addiction It Takes Help) that

educates and supports her community and families dealing with addiction (Kundert, 2012). Saldaña (2106), states that

Values Coding is the application of codes in qualitative data that reflect a participant’s values,attitudes,and beliefs, and

their personal view of the world and their place in it. I selected this as I was interested in the challenge of determining which code

would be applicable. It is not as easy as it seems. I also looked at Emotion Coding but found that the ladies in the video did not

express much emotion so I would be inferring the emotions rather than them being expressed or clearly stated by them.

Codes from Transcript of Video:

Value: “This issue touches me greatly as I have a son who got caught up in the cycle.”

Attitude: “When I saw those rates it spurred something in me that made me know that I had to somehow try and make a positive impact on this community.”

Belief: “What once was a big city problem is now felt in small cities across the nation.”

“The last time I’m not sure if it was another call for help or if it was just a mistake. I could tell that he was dead, you know, that he was brain dead.”

Professional development focuses on new instructional strategies that have been offered to English Language Arts (ELA) teachers.

This question was intended to see how often is the introduction of new instructional strategies for teachers. Teachers must be exposed to a variety of new approaches that are being added to the education world. For teachers to remain effective over the years, they must keep up-to-date with constant changes in educational research, development, and policy. There are frequent changes in curriculum, assessment modalities, and economic realities that affect the teaching and learning environment (Baird & Clark, 2018).[supanova_question]

How much will you have to return home if you stay all 5 years in L.A?

The saving accrued from the banks saving comprise of $5000 in a saving account bank and $2200 in a checking saving account bank that earned an interest of 1.5% and 1% annually respectively, for the time one stayed in Los Angeles for five years (Heilbroner & Milberg, 2012).

The saving account bank after five years the following amount was accrued = A = P (1+r/n) (nt)

A = 5000 (1 + 0.015 / 12) ^ (12(5))

A= 5000(1.0125) ^60

A= 5000 * 1.0778 = 5389

$5389

The amount saved from checking saving account after five years is

A = P (1+r/n) (nt)

A =$ 2200 (1 + 0.01 / 12) ^ (12(5))

A= 2200(1 + 0.01/12) ^60

A= 2200 * 1.645 = 3619

= $3619

The amount one will have saved for a period of five will be

$5389 + $3619 = $9008

Do you make enough to stay in L.A?

The earning an actor generates from acting while staying in Los .Angeles

The server job, a person may earn $800/week plus 12% in tips

Per month one earns (800 + 12/100 *800) = 800+ 96 = 896*4 = $3584

Moreover, a person generate another extra income as an fitness instructor at $40 in each class for two classes per week

$40 *2 = 80 * 4 = $ 240

The total income a person receives every month is $3584 + $240 = $3824.

The expenses a person may have as an actor will have to incur for the four years since the father will cater for the first one year until one attain age 26 years, at this point a person will have to pay for the expenses from the income she gets.

Rent = $1200 per month

Groceries = $200 per month

Utility bills

Entertainment = $100

Transportation charges = $1300 for getting out of Los Angeles and APR 15% for all the youth credit card. Fuel for transport of over 5000 miles plus the costs of maintenance the motor vehicle.

In this case expenses are more than the earnings one gets from the job as the server and fitness instructor with only $3824 per month while the total expenses is more than the earnings from the activities each month.

Hence, using the above evaluation one can conclude that the income from the jobs is not enough to maintain one to stay in the L.A.

How much will you need to make to stay in L.A?

The actor had a total of $3824 earnings from dance instructor job and server work. The expenses required a person to stay in L.A each month is more than $3824. Hence, for one to stay in the L.A city well there is an urge to have about $11000 to provide for the expenses with any other needs which can emerge?

How much will you have to return home if you stay all 5 years in L.A?

The amount one will have to return home is from the savings account that comprise of the saving account with $5000 and the checking account with $2200 plus the interest accrued for the period of five years one will stay in the Los Angeles (L.A) (Marshall, 2013).

Saving Account Amount = A = P (1+r/n) (nt)

A = 5000 (1 + 0.015 / 12) ^ (12(5))

A= 5000 * 1.0778 = 5389

Checking account savings

A = P (1+r/n) (nt)

A =$ 2200 (1 + 0.01 / 12) ^ (12(5))

A= 2200 * 1.645 = 3619

= $3619

Total saving one will take home for 5 years

$5389 + $3619 = $9008

Do you make enough to stay in L.A?

The earning one make as actor staying in L.A

As the server job, one earns $800 per week plus 12% of $800 for tips

Per month one earns (800 + 12/100*800) *4 = $3584

In addition, the person earns from fitness/ dance instructor at $40 per class having two classes per week

$40 *2 * 4 = $ 240

The total income a person earns per month is $3584 + $240 = $3824.

The expenses one will have to bear for the four years will be

Rent = $1200 per month

Groceries = $200 per month

Entertainment = $100

Charges for travelling = $1300 + APR 15% on the credit card

Fuel for transport for over 5000 miles + the maintenance costs

Considering the fact that expenses surpass the income one gets from job as the server and fitness/ dance instructor having only $3824 whereas the total expenses is more than this per month.

Therefore, using the above analysis one may conclude that amount earned from the activities is not enough in sustaining one to stay in the L.A.

How much will you need to make to stay in L.A?

The amount one has earned from the server job and fitness/ dance instructor job is $3824. The expenses needed one to stay in the each month is over the $3824. Thus, for a person to stay in the LA city well there is need to have close to $10000 to cater for the expenses.

I. NEED TO WORK DURING PREREQUISITE COURSES:

Attached is the copy of the verification of my employment in Friendship Manor Skilled Nursing Facility as a Licensed Vocational Nurse since February 24, 2016 up to current time.

II. FIRST GENERATION TO ATTEND COLLEGE

I was the first person in our generation to attend college after my family migrated in the United. Since my brother and sister choose to continue to work to support our family’s financial needs, I decided and must continue with my education as a full-time working student. I know the importance of education which is the fundamental to one’s life in order to look life with a broader scope and various points of view.

III. LOW FAMILY INCOME: DOCUMENTED ELIGIBILITY FOR FINANCIAL AID (BOGW)

Attached is the copy of the proof of my eligibility for financial aid (BOG-W and EOPS).

IV. DISADVANTAGE: SOCIAL OR EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT

I had a challenging time preparing for my TEAS test because English is my third language; my first attempt of the of TEAS test was on January 24, 2020 and I did not pass. I had a major depression after I failed my first examination and severe anxiety to take the TEAS test again. However, I must continue; as when I about to prepare for my remediation for my TEAS test, COVID-19 pandemic started to arise. As a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a skilled facility, where nurses are in desperate need, I volunteered to perform nursing duties in the COVID unit to help our elderly residents who were positive to COVID-19. I devoted my time contributing my duties as a nurse in the midst of the world’s crisis. I must serve for our society before my personal interest; this took my remediation plan and second take of the TEAS test out of the time frame. Despite all the circumstances and my testing anxiety, I was able to complete my remediation plan and was able to pass my TEAS test for the second attempt last August 12, 2021.

V. DISADVANTAGE: DIFFICULT PERSONAL AND FAMILY SITUATIONS OR CIRCUMSTANCES

My mother is the only breadwinner in our family after my biological father died when I was 5 years old. When my mother, brother, sister, and I migrated in the United States, we had to live in our relative’s apartment, where three families are living in a one-bedroom apartment. My step-father was an alcoholic and my mother have to take three jobs to support our family’s financial needs. As soon as my siblings and I were in a legal age, we had to work while in high school to pay for our apartment and to sustain our family’s daily needs. Despite all the family circumstances and personal difficulties, I must continue to work and study at the same time to achieve my ultimate career goals in life.

If I would have given a chance to be selected to move forward into the nursing program, I will give my wholeheartedly and pure dedication to the program. Also, I will sacrifice anything to be able to continue my nursing education and use the knowledge to continue to serve in the healthcare industry.[supanova_question]

and semester of class, Title of study, and Date submitted. This page does not count towards the page
length requirement for the paper. This page is worth 5 points.
I. Introduction: The first section of the paper includes information about your topic of study. For
instance, if you choose to study racism, you will discuss racism in the US today. This can include the
state of race relations, racialized hate crimes, racism in the media, and so on. This section will be a
paragraph or two that introduce your topic and explain its importance in society. YOU WILL INCLUDE
FACTS IN THIS SECTION AND YOU MUST CITE THEM IN ASA FORMAT! This section should be 1-1.5 pages
(double-spaced) long, and is worth 10 points.
II. Research Question and Hypothesis: In this section, you will state the question that you are
investigating, followed by its hypothesis. For instance, if you are interested in examining sexism in
popular magazines, your research questions might be:
Research Question 1: Do magazines targeting female readers and magazines targeting male readers
differ in terms of topics of articles?
Hypothesis 1: It is hypothesized that magazines targeting female readers will have more articles
discussing beauty, sex, clothing, and housekeeping, as compared to magazines targeting male readers.
Research Question 2: Do magazines targeting female readers and magazines targeting male readers
differ in terms of topics of appearance and career of cover model?
Hypothesis 2: It is hypothesized that the models on the covers of magazines targeting female readers
will be dressed and posed in a more sexy fashion, and they will be more likely to be entertainers or
models instead of businesspersons or politicians, as compared to magazines targeting male readers.
The research question(s) should appear in the exact format as the example questions above.
You should have only one or two research questions, each with just one corresponding hypothesis (as
you see in the example above). This section is worth 15 points.
III. Research Methods: Sampling Method (Representative), Concepts, Variable(s) for each Concept,
Indicator(s) for each variable, and Data Sheet Entries. These elements should be described in full detail
in separate paragraphs, and each should be in separate paragraphs with headings.
 Sampling:
o Representative Sampling: What is your population and how did you choose a sample to
represent it? What is N, and what is your n?
 Remember, the population is the entire group of items, material, or media to which
you are generalizing. For instance, if you are examining gender stereotypes in
children’s t-shirts (7-8 years old) on Target’s website, your population would be all
of the children’s t-shirts (7-8 years old) on Target’s website. The N is the number in
the population.
 The sample is the group of t-shirts you selected randomly from the population of all
of the t-shirts (7-8 years old) on Target’s website. You must select these randomly
and tell me HOW you selected these randomly. The group you selected randomly is
the sample. The n is the number of t-shirts in the sample.
 Concepts: What are the concepts that you are examining? List and explain them in detail.
 For example, if you are examining gender and children’s clothing, the concept you
are examining is likely “sexism,” or “gender roles,” or “gender stereotypes.”
 Operationalization of Variables: List your variables and make it explicit/clear which concept they
represent. Once you list your variables, then state exactly HOW you will measure them
(operationalization). Then, describe the coding scheme you will use to collect your data.
 Data Sheet Entries: State and describe in detail what each row and column will represent in your
data sheet. DO NOT include your actual data sheet(s) in this section. The actual data sheet(s) will go
at the end of the paper.
Note that you should use a separate data table for each research question you have. This section
should be at least 1.5 pages (double-spaced) long and is worth 30 points.
IV. Findings: Your Findings section should include at least two paragraphs:
1. The first paragraph will state your findings. In this paragraph, you will state what you have recorded
on your data table(s).
2. The following paragraph(s) will include your answer to these questions:
Did you find any signs or manifestations of inequality? What are they? Give at least 5 examples of what
you found. Why do you consider these examples of inequality?
Did you find examples of equality? If you found examples of equality in your research, give at least 5
examples of equal representations. Why do you consider these examples of equality?
This section should be at least 1.5 pages long and is worth 20 points.
V. Discussion and Conclusion: The fifth section of the paper is the Discussion and Conclusion section. In
this section, you will discuss what you found through your research, and what it means for society and
for individuals. You will state AND interpret and explain your findings. What do your findings say about
society’s perceptions and ideologies (ideas) related to your topic/issue? You MAY write in first person in
this section of the paper.
In this section, you will discuss the implications of your findings. Discuss at least 3 of these in these:
1. What do your findings say about society’s perceptions and ideologies related to your
topic/issue? Give 5 examples from your research, and explain what this kind of manifestation represents
about our culture’s ideas and beliefs.
2. How are individuals of different groups affected by this issue, based on what you found in your
study? How is society affected by this issue and how people or issues are represented in our society,
based on your research findings?
3. What are three examples of effects of this issue that you have noticed in your everyday life?
Do you think that people of different generations are affected differently by this issue/topic, and how
media/society represents your issue? Why, or why not?
4. Do you think that if you did this research 20 years ago, you would have similar findings? Why,
or why not? What about 50 years ago? What about 50 years in the future?
5. How do you feel about what you found? Are you hopeful, complacent, disturbed, frustrated,
happy? Why? If things were to change, how might this happen? Who might be responsible for initiating
change? Is widespread change possible? Do you want to see changes? Why, or why not?
This section should be at least 1.5 pages long and is worth 15 points.

This project places you as a data analyst for a real estate company, Steadyliving Limited. The Director has requested that you do a detailed analysis of homes in your area as the company is considering investing in some homes. Below are the required steps needed and in the end, you will be expected to submit a detailed and formal memo to the director with recommendations.
STEP 1) Visit the website, Zillow.com. Select and enter a zip code that you are familiar with or for which you would like to see real-estate values. In that same zip code, select 30 different homes (be sure that you select similar type of real estate properties (i.e. single family, condominiums, etc.). Place your data on an Excel spreadsheet that includes a column for- Address, number of beds, number of baths, square feet, year built, type of home (i.e. townhouse, single family, etc.), real-estate value (sale price). Be sure to only include quantitative data in the spreadsheet (other than the address). (5 points)
STEP 2) On the Excel template developed from STEP 1 above, for each of the columns, compute the mean, mode, median, standard deviation and variance for each of the data sets ( Number of beds, Number of baths, square footage, year built, price). Describe any type of outliers you may have in your data by examining the averages you computed to each of the individual data points in your analysis (5points)
STEP 3) Using the Excel template created in STEP 1, for the real- estate value column, identify the upper limit and lower limit data points and compute a 95% and 99% confidence interval for the mean value ( Price of home). Write the interpretation of your findings (10 points)
STEP 4) Using the data collected, find the relationship between any two quantitative variables
( examples can be size and price, number of rooms and price, distance from near by schools and price, etc)
a) Identify and interpret the Correlation Coefficient and Coefficient of Determination in context of the problem
b) Determine the regression equation
c) Discuss the findings of your regression analysis. Interpret slope in context of the problem
d) Provide the scatter plot. (20)
Step 5) Using the data, you collected from steps 1-4, prepare a one to two page memo. Students will submit a word document explaining the data, results and analysis of such and an Excel file showing the workings. (10 points)
The memo should be addressed to your manager of the real estate company. An example of how memos look like is

Part Four – Action Organizing Campaign Paper (10%) Week 13
Based on the community assessment information from Part One, including the issues identified by Monmouth Community residents and through your own research, decide what issue the community would have the best success organizing around, using a human rights, participatory, social, economic, and environmental justice perspective. Your action campaign must be based on the strengths and capacities you have identified in the community through your asset map and discussion in parts 1-3 of your paper.
The final paper should describe the action organizing effort to the fullest extent as well as include the above information as content or appendices. Make sure to connect your assessment results from Part One to your organizing campaign. Discuss how this organizing campaign contributes to advocacy efforts to advance human rights and social and economic justice. All papers must be typed, using correct APA style.

here are my notes:
Social anxiety: kids didn’t go to school for a year, and they have a lot of anxiety to meet new people, so my campaign is going to tackle social anxiety.
Red bank had many programs before this pandemic, for example Pal program, Home work club, middle school put a program in the school about social anxiety, Family Support Organizatoin had after school program where they brought snacks for kids and sat with their parents to discuss their needs while kids played with their peers. Had social group activities, gathering with kids and families board game, card game, jeopardy,
Now the kids are rusty they did not get to practice their skills, social anxiety is contributed by lack of practice,
there was a panic,
society tht didn’t want to go near each other,
To decrease their anxiety, a social anxiety trained by parents and teachers can gain confidence, social media use as socialization where kids didn’t had to face anyone it was only in front of their device,
They need to build their confidence, develop new friend circle, get them to understand others, communication skills, trying to eliminate stress, etc.
Epidemic truancy means they do not want to go to school,
One of my client at jersey innovative services is a 6 year old boy who doesn’t talk to anyone after the pandemic, this is due to social anxiety

My campaign will talk about restarting all these activates, this way kids will have change to socialize, get out of their circle to explore new opportunities.

Chance to socialize,
I want to link them to the community
Long branch library has teen nights on the weekend, toddler night, preschoolers on the weekend, do something in the library,
State the object,
Lower economic, nothing for people in the middle school,
Boys and girls club, free,
Dance studio runs the program
Roller skating
Art therapy
parents are worried about their kids social anxiety. for examlple One of the ladies i interviewed her daughter went back to her 1st grade after the pandemic and she has huge difficulty communicating. her teachers heard her voice twice in this school year. prior to this lock down this child was very talkative.
I would like red bank to start the activities mentioned above and some more activities or ways to help parents deal with this stress.

consider my notes to write this well thought paper.

Southern New Hampshire University

Introduction

Purpose: [Include in this section a brief overview, the purpose of the report, and your approach. Define your random sample and two hypotheses (means) to analyze.]

Sample: [Take a random sample of observations from your region and describe what is included in your sample (i.e., states, region, years or months).]

Questions and type of test: [For your selected sample, define two hypothesis questions and the appropriate type of test hypothesis for each. For each hypothesis question, answer questions 3a-c from the Project Two Guidelines and Rubric. This includes questions about the population parameter, your hypothesis, the inference method you will use, and how you will use estimation and confidence intervals to help you solve the problem.]

1-Tail Test

Hypothesis: [Define the population parameter. Write null and alternative hypotheses. Note: For means, define a hypothesis that is greater than the population parameter. Specify your significance level.]

Data analysis: [Summarize your sample data using appropriate graphical displays and summary statistics.]

[Provide at least one histogram of your sample data.]

[In a table, provide summary statistics including sample size, mean, median, and standard deviation.]

Note: For quartiles 1 and 3, use the quartile function in Excel:

=QUARTILE([data range], [quartile number])

[Summarize your sample data, describing the center, spread, and shape in context.]

[Note: For shape, think about the distribution: skewed or symmetric.]

[Check the assumptions by determining if the normal condition has been met. Determine if there are any other conditions that you should check and whether they have been met.]

[Note: Think about the central limit theorem and sampling methods.]

Hypothesis Test Calculations:

[Determine the appropriate test statistic (t).]

[Note: This calculation is (mean – target)/standard error. In this case, the mean is your regional mean, and the target is the national mean.]

[Calculate the probability (p value).]

[Note: This calculation is done with the T.DIST.RT function in Excel: =T.DIST.RT([test statistic], [degree of freedom]). The degree of freedom is calculated by subtracting 1 from your sample size.]

Interpretation:

[Relate the p value and significance level.]

[Make the correct decision (reject or fail to reject).]

[Provide a conclusion in the context of your hypothesis.]

2-Tail Test

Hypotheses: [Define the population parameter. Write null and alternative hypotheses.]

[Note: For means, define a hypothesis that is not equal to the population parameter.]

[State your significance level.]

Data Analysis:

[Summarize your sample data using appropriate graphical displays and summary statistics.]

[Provide at least one histogram of your sample data.]

[In a table, provide summary statistics including sample size, mean, and standard deviation.]

[Note: For quartiles 1 and 3, use the quartile function in Excel:

=QUARTILE([data range], [quartile number]) ]

[Summarize your sample data, describing the center, spread, and shape in comparison to the national information.]

[Note: For shape, think about the distribution: skewed or symmetric.]

[Check the assumptions by determining if the normal condition has been met. Determine if there are any other conditions that you should check and whether they have been met.]

Note: Think about the central limit theorem and sampling methods.

Hypothesis Test Calculations:

[Determine the appropriate test statistic (t).]

[Note: This calculation is (mean – target)/standard error. In this case, the mean is your regional mean, and the target is the national mean.]

[Calculate the probability (p value).]

[Note: This calculation is done with the TDIST.2T function in Excel: =T.DIST.RT([test statistic], [degree of freedom]). The degree of freedom is calculated by subtracting 1 from your sample size.]

Interpretation:

[Relate the p value and significance level.]

[Make the correct decision (reject or fail to reject).]

Students Should Have to Wear School Uniforms By Belinda Luscombe ; March

Students Should Have to Wear School Uniforms

By Belinda Luscombe ; March 25, 2014; Time Magazine

A middle school in Illinois made headlines this week because it got a little more stringent with its ban on students wearing yoga pants and leggings. It’s not the only school with dress code issues; almost every week there’s a local story about some problem over what kids wear to school. It’s a debate that takes up a lot of time for school administrators. And parents. But it’s the world’s easiest education problem to solve: school uniforms.

I know, nobody likes school uniforms. I wore one for 13 years, and cursed it every single day. But this is exactly why I’m such a fan. To me, it seems that almost any problem facing schools today could be solved by uniforms. Here’s a sample of their magical powers:

School Uniforms Alleviate Bullying/Harrassment
They are great levelers. With a strategically chosen uniform, body type disappears. And it’s hard to distinguish who is cool and who is not. It’s harder to discern the differences in socio-economic background. Nobody wants any item of clothing that the other is wearing; all are equally undesirable, so thieving and general adolescent covetousness are reduced. Every student can find commonality with another; a repulsion for what they are forced to wear. And if schools really are worried about boys being distracted by the female form, the right school uniform is a stiff antidote.

School Uniforms Empower School Staff
A uniform is not the same thing as a dress code. There’s no arguing about whether Ariel’s shiny aqua micro mini is in accordance with the requirement for a “blue skirt.” There’s a uniform; no shades of grey, just the one drab hue the manufacturers managed to come up with. No endless back and forth between child, parents and school. Moreover, when a kid’s in uniform, he or she sticks out like a sore thumb. The local community knows where that kid belongs. It’s harder for kids to skip school or get into trouble outside school. They’re too easily spotted. At the boys’ school near mine, the young men were obliged to pick up any litter on the street, even if they did not drop it. They were also obliged to doff their hats to any car that stopped to let them cross the road. Australia isn’t exactly known for its formality, so this was not normal behavior. But since the boys were in uniform, people expected it of them.

School Uniforms Fund Education
Kids change out of uniforms the moment they get home. They don’t wear them on weekends. Nobody ever wants to hang on to them for one second longer than they have to. Consequently, they can be donated back to the school. People who can’t afford new uniforms can purchase pre-worn ones, with the money going to fund school programs. And since uniforms are never fashionable (or unfashionable), and the schools can easily identify their potential customers, the demand for them is very predictable and robust. Parents who can afford new uniforms, on the other hand, will enjoy being spared the daily airing of opinions as to what is and what is not an appropriate thing for a student to wear in a learning environment.

School uniforms keep students focused on their education, not their clothes.

A bulletin published by the National Association of Secondary School Principals stated that “When all students are wearing the same outfit, they are less concerned about how they look and how they fit in with their peers; thus, they can concentrate on their schoolwork.” A study by the University of Houston found that elementary school girls’ language test scores increased by about three percentile points after uniforms were introduced. Former US Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, advocated school uniforms as a way to help students focus on learning: “Take that [clothing choices] off the table and put the focus on school, not on what you’re wearing.” Chris Hammons, Principal of Woodland Middle School in Coeur d’Alene, ID, stated that uniforms “provide for less distraction, less drama, and more of a focus on learning.”

School Uniforms Empower Students
School uniform violations are like tax dodges. A lot of people transgress a bit, but most people still pay their taxes. At my school, we were not allowed to wear sweaters outside the school grounds unless they were covered by the school blazer or a raincoat. (It was a very strange rule, obviously established in the era of the sweater girl but made no sense in my time, the era of the Great Oversized Pullover) Clearly, raincoats were only supposed to be worn when it was raining. But the rebels among us sometimes wore them on cloudless days. Or we made tiny, visible-only-to-the-teenage-eye adjustments to the buttons or collars. Or we wore our gym tunics (yellow, with, I kid you not, bloomers) on a day we did not have P.E. We will not be silenced! we thought, as the teachers carefully smothered their laughter.

School Uniforms Create More Interesting Human Beings
What does a person wear after they get to choose their own clothes for almost the first time in their sentient life? Anything they want. My school had restrictions on haircuts and jewelry as well as uniforms, so I pretty much dressed like a punk clown for my entire undergraduate career. For people with actual talent and taste, the results are even more remarkable. Countries that have school uniforms, including Britain, Italy and Japan produce designers like Vivienne Westwood, Miuccia Prada and Rei Kawakubo, whose clothes straddle the boundaries of fashion and art. Countries without school uniforms produce designers like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, who make great clothes, many of which look a lot like uniforms.

Students Should Not Have to Wear School Uniforms

Ellen Jones; Procon.org

Traditionally favored by private and parochial institutions, school uniforms are being adopted by US public schools in increasing numbers. About one in five US public schools (21%) required students to wear uniforms during the 2015-2016 school year, up from one in eight in 2003-2004. Mandatory uniform policies in public schools are found more commonly in high-poverty areas.

Opponents say school uniforms infringe upon students’ right to express their individuality, have no positive effect on behavior and academic achievement, and emphasize the socioeconomic disparities they are intended to disguise. Here are a few reasons why:

School uniforms restrict students’ freedom of expression.

The First Amendment of the US Constitution guarantees that all individuals have the right to express themselves freely. The US Supreme Court stated in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District (7-2, 1969) that “it can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.” In the 1970 case Richards v. Thurston (3-0), which revolved around a boy refusing to have his hair cut shorter, the US First Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that “compelled conformity to conventional standards of appearance” does not “seem a justifiable part of the educational process.” Clothing choices are “a crucial form of self-expression,” according to the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada, which also stated that “allowing students to choose their clothing is an empowering message from the schools that a student is a maturing person who is entitled to the most basic self-determination.” Clothing is also a popular means of expressing support for various social causes and compulsory uniforms largely remove that option. Students at Friendly High School in Prince George’s County, MD, were not allowed to wear pink shirts to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a result, 75 students received in-school suspensions for breaking the school’s uniform restrictions.

School uniforms promote conformity over individuality.

At a time when schools are encouraging an appreciation of diversity, enforcing standardized dress sends a contradictory message. Chicago junior high school student Kyler Sumter wrote in the Huffington Post: “They decide to teach us about people like Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony and Booker T. Washington… We learn about how these people expressed themselves and conquered and we can’t even express ourselves in the hallways.” Troy Shuman, a senior in Harford County, MD, said the introduction of a mandatory uniform policy to his school would be “teaching conformity and squelching individual thought. Just think of prisons and gangs. The ultimate socializer to crush rebellion is conformity in appearance. If a school system starts at clothes, where does it end?” In schools where uniforms are specifically gendered (girls must wear skirts and boys must wear pants), transgendered, gender-fluid, and gender-nonconforming students can feel ostracized. Seamus, a 16-year-old transgendered boy, stated, “sitting in a blouse and skirt all day made me feel insanely anxious. I wasn’t taken seriously. This is atrocious and damaging to a young person’s mental health; that uniform nearly destroyed me.”

School uniforms do not stop bullying and may increase violent attacks.

Tony Volk, PhD, Associate Professor at Brock University, stated, “Overall, there is no evidence in bullying literature that supports a reduction in violence due to school uniforms.” A peer-reviewed study found that “school uniforms increased the average number of assaults by about 14 [per year] in the most violent schools.” A Texas Southern University study found that school discipline incidents rose by about 12% after the introduction of uniforms. According to the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Office of Education Evaluation and Management, fights in middle schools nearly doubled within one year of introducing mandatory uniforms.

School uniforms emphasize the socio-economic divisions they are supposed to eliminate.

Most public schools with uniform policies are in poor neighborhoods, emphasizing the class distinctions that uniforms were supposed to eliminate. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 47% of high-poverty public schools required school uniforms, while only 6% of low-poverty public schools required them. Even within one school, uniforms cannot conceal the differences between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” David L. Brunsma, PhD, stated that “more affluent families buy more uniforms per child. The less affluent… they have one… It’s more likely to be tattered, torn and faded. It only takes two months for socioeconomic differences to show up again.” According to the Children’s Society (UK), almost 800,000 pupils go to school in poorly fitted uniforms because their parents cannot afford new items. Uniforms also emphasize racial divisions. Schools with a minority student population of 50% or more are four times as likely to require uniforms than schools with a minority population of 20-49%, and 24 times more likely than schools with minority populations of 5%-19%.

Focusing on uniforms takes attention away from finding genuine solutions to problems in education. Spending time and effort implementing uniform policies may detract from more effective efforts to reduce crime in schools and boost student performance. More substantive improvements to public education could be achieved with smaller class sizes, tightened security, increased parental involvement, improved facilities, and other measures.[supanova_question]

Report Project for Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood Improvement

Writing a business report is a fundamental aspect of giving checks and balances in a business organization. An account provides a true reflection of all the departments in the organization in terms of how they perform. Upon writing the report, the organization’s recommendations plan on the potential ways of making the essential changes. The chicken and seafood business has been on the rise for the past two decades, a lot of people rely on chicken and seafood as part of their meal, consumption of chicken is now a worldwide, chicken rearing has been an excellent source of income. Most hotels and restaurants use chicken as part of their meal for their clients; due to people’s love for chicken and seafood, most of these businesses usually have many customers. The high flow of customers has made most hotels improve in their odder-taking procedure; at the same time, some companies still use the old order-taking systems.

The purpose of the business report:

This research report focuses on the restaurant called Lisa. It has many branches for chicken and seafood inns with many customers but has a poor odder-taking system. It will recommend solutions to the management to boost their order-taking strategy (Burrow, Kleindl, and Becraft 2017). To increase their order-taking approach, Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood restaurant must adapt the service blueprint method. According to Pandey and Kulshrestha (2021), the service blueprint is a process analysis that satisfies the customer’s needs. Service blueprinting has three categories or groups. It is under the management of the client at the first level, and the client may engage with the service provider at the second level. The service separation from the management and interaction of the client at the third level. It can improve a restaurant’s slow customer experience by smoothing out the process and making it more efficient.

The service blueprint will begin when clients enter the restaurant and continue until they leave. Employees must meet clients by holding the door open and welcoming them warmly. For customers to dine in for the service, the restaurant must meet their needs and wishes. Notifying customers and other options can be recommended to them by the staff. Consumers who refuse the recommended options must accept the disapproval and greet the staff before leaving the restaurant.

The audience of this report:

The audience of this report is the management of Lisa’s chicken organization. They are supposed to know some of the organization’s problems and get their solutions (Burrow, Kleindl, and Becraft 2017). Lee, Hallak, and Sardeshmukh (2019) argue that for management growth, management must host events and conferences for all managers to share ideas, strategies, and methods and address potential concerns affecting the operation of other retail chains. Lisa chicken leaders can talk about client service concerns and how to manage them. An assessment is required to identify the level to which practical training enhances learning and impacts job performance (Jaworski, Ravichandran, Karpinski, and Singh, 2018). The audience of this report also includes the management department responsible for hiring creative workers, having outstanding communication skills, and being aware of their role in the restaurant to satisfy customer needs. Lisa’s managers and supervisors can also employ job requirements and employee criteria to choose workers and educate them to their new positions.

I chose this topic because:

This topic is significant because it will give important ways of solving the problems the company is facing. As a restaurant, Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood restaurant require an approach for improving food services. It is essential to address the various services that affect the organization’s regular performance. Therefore, this report highlights the need to consider ways of providing services and improving different aspects of the service operation to ensure optimum satisfaction of customers. The report suggests that Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood restaurant can improve its order-taking strategy by integrating the service blueprint method because its primary goal is to satisfy customer needs. The report also highlights the need to improve the management of Lisa’s chicken organization to improve job performance.

Blueprint technique

As a result, Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood has a poor odder-taking system that requires improvement. Therefore, the restaurant must integrate the service blueprint method because its primary goal is to satisfy customer needs to improve the odder-taking strategy. Hence, a service blueprint is essential since it will distinguish between the experience of consumers and the actions of staff and support operations, which are not visible to customers at Lisa’s restaurant. Further, it will define customer-employee interactions and how activities and technologies support these interrelations (Hossain et al., 2017). Moreover, it will allow managers to discover possible failure spots in the process, where there is a considerable possibility of things going wrong and affecting service quality.

To meet customer expectations for cleanliness, mainly during the pandemic, Lisa’s restaurant can use Ecolab Science Certified Program, which includes enhanced cleaning measures with comprehensive workplace auditing and training. Thus, the program will assist Lisa in delivering a high level of cleanliness since Ecolab’s latest Sink & Surface Cleaning Detergent kill Coronavirus germs in only fifteen minutes, making it the best solution shown to eradicate the virus (Ceaser, 2021). Also, food contact areas, including tables, countertops, cooking areas, and sinks, may safely be cleaned with the no-rinse solution. The program will help Lisa update cleaning protocols and good practices for restaurant workers to revamp food safety and minimize exposure to viruses. Thus, cleaning methods are spelled out, including when, where, and how to cleanse. Further, the procedures call for enhanced cleaning duration and frequency, particularly in high-touch regions and visible washing by personnel. As a result, Consumers at Lisa’s restaurant will relax knowing that cleaning and disinfection techniques, as well as public health recommendations, have been subjected to on-site objective assessments by Ecolab food safety and public health experts.

Pandey & Kulshrestha (2021) suggest that the implementation of Artificial intelligence-based technologies facilitates hotel service delivery. AI systems are about computers, robots, or machines executing jobs that previously required cognitive functions to complete. It has to do with automation and big data. Machine learning will enable Lisa’s restaurant to create better procedures, anticipate requirements, solve problems, and understand traveler patterns to make better decisions. Thus Lisa’s, restaurant operations will be made more efficient by automating them. For instance, Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood can use robots to welcome customers at the reception or main door and concierge servers (Sitio, 2017).

Furthermore, Lisa’s restaurant can use the technology to facilitate online restaurant reservations in advance. Thus, the restaurants can now examine all visitor details utilizing a single platform for walk-in clients and those who have booked previous bookings and provide accurate wait times.

Additionally, a tablet ordering system could revamp consumer dining encounters since the instructions are precise and less risk of human mistakes. Nonetheless, the restaurant’s efficiency and speed increase lead to a superior guest experience. Also, through tablet orders, Lisa will serve more customers, making them satisfied and happy. Furthermore, the technology will facilitate customer relationship management at Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood. POS-connected CRM provides incredible insights into consumer wants and behaviors, allowing it to make educated decisions based on the data collected, resulting in improved customer service (Posist, 2020). Also, waiters may see this information inside the POS and use it to upsell and propose things based on the customer’s previous orders.

Further, Lisa’s restaurant can use the feed management application that requests detailed feedback from customers on the specific item ordered. This itemized-level data will also assist it in measuring the efficiency of the menu items. The Feedback Application instantly updates customers’ information in the CRM, reducing the need for human data entry and the risk of mistakes.

An illustration of Lisa’s restaurant’s online ordering process.

Improve the management

For management growth, management must host events and conferences for all managers to share ideas, strategies, and methods and address potential concerns affecting the operation of other retail chains (Lee, Hallak, and Sardeshmukh 2019). An organization with a knowledge-sharing culture is more likely to share insights and ideas since it is usually instead of forced. Therefore, service creativity may boost team members sharing by their expertise. When workers share their knowledge, they have a greater chance of coming up with new concepts and service offerings that will benefit the company (Danthanarayana et al., 2020). Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood management can utilize the external forces of information to produce ideas and inform creativity. Hence the restaurant can choose to emulate their rivals’ successful techniques to reduce the risks and uncertainties of establishing new ideas if they have few f resources and a desire to use what already works.

Sharing thoughts will enable the management to innovate new services, processes, management systems, and products. Hence managers need to focus on contemporary haute cuisine to be competitive and attract or retain more customers. Lee et al. (2019) claim that working practices integrate management innovations, including new techniques, in a company’s leadership structure. Furthermore, external affairs, including new ways of organizing internal cooperation, empowering and directing employees, professional growth, and worker’s compensation, have resulted in organizational reform inside a firm that enhances internal coordination and cooperation mechanisms. It stimulates creative thinking, creativity, and openness among staff members and the spirit of collaboration required to develop and execute ideas.

The audience of this report also includes the management department responsible for hiring creative workers who have outstanding communication skills and are aware of their role in the restaurant to satisfy customer needs. In the culinary world, executive chefs’ creativity characterization and formulation of concepts, the preparation of meals by kitchen staff, and the creation of product names that elicit gourmet sensations and emotions (Tongchaiprasit & Ariyabuddhiphongs, 2016). Hiring creative workers in Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood will bring new solutions for complex issues since the restaurant must stay one step further to win the confidence and trust of its consumers. Also, hiring creative employees will help the restaurant to find new opportunities to develop since they portray more dedication. In doing so, they will surpass expectations and take up responsibilities with tremendous enthusiasm. For instance, hiring a creative employee can assist in finding new ways to serve chickens to customers, such as by robots rather than relying on humans.

Communication efficiently with colleagues, visitors, and employees in the hospitality sector is the most vital characteristic. Therefore, hiring workers who have excellent communication skills at Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood will improve customer service. Also, the workers can better understand instructions from the management and customers and facilitate a great understanding of the latest artificial intelligence technology. Moreover, hiring workers with excellent communication skills boosts confidence when approaching guests and positive attitudes towards the work environment. Good communication skills demonstrate that workers listen to the visitors, fix their problems, appreciate their comments, and receive their messages, contributing to a positive guest experience. To improve effective communication among the hired workers, it is suitable for Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood to arrange communication skills training. It will enable their personnel to successfully interact with visitors in critical situations such as handling complaints, communicating with departments, responding to customers at the reception, and assisting with documents such as menus and invoices.

Conclusion

In conclusion, this report highlights the need to consider ways of providing services and improving different aspects of the service operation to ensure optimum satisfaction of customers. The report suggests that Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood restaurant can improve its order-taking strategy by integrating the service blueprint method because its primary goal is to satisfy customer needs. The report also highlights the need to improve the management of Lisa’s chicken organization to improve job performance. Therefore, Lisa’s Chicken and Seafood restaurant need an approach for improving food services. It is essential to address the various services that affect the organization’s regular performance.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

HealthCo. Company seeks to provide exclusive Viagra products. We tailor the products to clients’ needs, especially those who are suffering from erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. The sales of these products are conducted online and delivered to customers. Also, it plans to take advantage of the online market by capturing the market through online advertisement.

DESCRIPTION OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

After extensive research and thorough consideration, HealthCo. is considering a venture into the sale of Viagra products throughout the United States. We only developed this product to assist men who experience erectile dysfunction or men who experience premature ejaculation. Viagra relaxes muscles of blood vessels and significantly increases the blood flow to penile glands hence boosting sexual performance. Still, another brand Viagra known as Sildenafil, can remedy pulmonary arterial hypertension and subsequently increase the exercise capacity in men and women. To reach a good number of customers within a wide area, HealthCo will sell the products online. With the recent business trends showing how the internet is revolutionizing business, the company considers using an online platform because it’s cheap and because it reaches a broad market.

TECHNOLOGY CONSIDERATIONS

Technology is undoubtedly a significant factor in business today. HealthCo. intends to incorporate the use of technology in conducting business. First, it will create a website where potential customers can order the product. Second, the company plans to advertise the product in collaboration will adult content sites to reach an optimum number of customers. Last, since advancement in technology has also led to faster delivery services, the company plans to incorporate delivery services for esteemed customers. So, after ordering from our website, the customer will have the product delivered to their doorstep.

SERVICE MARKETPLACE

While other competing firms who sell Viagra mostly do it for sexual satisfaction. HealthCo is taking a whole novel approach to the sale of Viagra. Besides offering sexual pleasure, our company also aims to provide medical solutions to individuals who have erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation. Several competitors in the market have brick-and-mortar stores. However, HealthCo. Will sell the products online to reduce production costs and further reach a broad market.

Last, an advantage that we have over our competitors is that HealthCo. delivers products to the doorstep within three days after ordering from our website.

MARKETING STRATEGY

The first marketing strategy is that HealthCo. will sell products online since brick-and-mortar stores are expensive to start. Still, it also reaches a few clients. Second, our products take a health perspective. Our team of health experts will engage the clients about the details of the problem and consequently offer a matching product. Most Viagra companies dish out their products without considering the needs of the client, giving HealthCo. an upper hand.

ORGANIZATION AND STAFFING

Since the company operates online, we will hire website designers and managers who monitor traffic on our websites and correct any impending issues. We will also have a team of marketers who ensure the target market knows about the product. Last, we will have a department of storage and delivery that ensures each ordered product reaches our clients.

Feature Article Proposal

Today, we can see more and more cases of special needs throughout children. Whether it is through genetics or due to environmental factors, a topic that was seen as taboo ten years ago is highlighted in society today. Seeing as this is a topic most individuals are not familiar with, this topic, podcast, and interview all can tie into creating a feature article to raise awareness on children with special needs. In more detailed terms, all throughout the school system, children are in dire need of shadows, CCW’s, behaviour and speech technicians at school. Most educational centers don’t have the resources that children with special needs need. With this field interview conducted, it showed what an ABA therapist main goal is and how it is brought out. The feature article topic of the importance of ABA therapists with children with special needs, will integrate all the important factors on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) community and how important seeking therapy is. To reiterate, this topic matters not only because special needs hold a special place in my heart, but the countless cases of children who don’t get the proper therapy at home or school to excel in their development is alarming.[supanova_question]

Introduction of Products or Services

The business aims to offer the customers high-quality products and services to acquire their attention and satisfaction. The most prominent products and services that are going to be offered by the business are meal planning, food products, and quality testing services. According to “Hanson” article these services will be quite fascinating for the customers because they can get the desired hygienic and even, test their food. These things will contribute towards making the services package of the company more efficacious and therefore, the customers will be attracted towards the company. The company will hire experts who evaluate each customer’s health and will provide them with a meal plan that is following their health. Moreover, each meal will be tested by the company before providing it to the customers due to which SafeMeal will be able to ensure its mission of providing the customers with the best possible products. The company has conducted thorough research before finalizing the services set of the company. Several customers were interviewed by the company to get an in-depth insight regarding their liking and disliking and more specifically their allergies. The company has developed an effective mechanism to address the demands of the customers which has further helped the company to develop a perfect set of products and services for the customers. The major ingredients that the company will be used to prepare high-quality meals are chicken, beef, mutton, pork, vegetables, oils, and fish. All these materials will be procured from organic farms and other credible sources due to which the complied meal will be of the best quality in the market.

The customers will be able to get the products for the maintenance of their cholesterol level, diabetes, and to gain or lose the desired amount of weight.

Technology Considerations

The era of advanced technology has made it easier for organizations to execute the processes more proficiently as compared to the past. As previously discussed, that the business will also focus on the provision of food testing facilities to the customers. Therefore, it will be using high-quality machinery such as spectrometer, refractometers, and moisture analyzers in this regard. Moreover, some medical equipment such as BP apparatus, oxygen cylinder, Glucometer will also be used by the company to check diabetes, cholesterol, and blood pressure level of the customers to develop a perfect meal plan for them. SafeMeal will consider all the necessary aspects that are interlinked with the provision of the hygienic meal so that is why the food will also be processed with the help of machinery instead of using hands. These processes include the cleaning of meat, vegetable cutting, and the inclusion of spices in the dishes. All these procedures are usually done by hand, but SafeMeal will take an extra step and invest additional money in this regard to attain the desired advantage over the competitors within the market. Effective marketing plays a vital role in making any business successful. The efficacy of the business depends upon the kind of promotional strategies that are implemented by the company. Considering the importance of marketing strategy, it is obvious that SafeMeal will ensure fact that all the promotional activities are carried out efficaciously and a maximum number of customers are aware of the services offered by the company.

Industry Information

The company will be mostly focusing on the athletes and the people who are more health conscious as compared to the other people. The company will be in the commercial area of Troy due to which it will also attract maximum customers. The product and services offered by the company will attract customers and most commonly the athletes, sportspersons, and the people who are vigilant towards adapting healthier measures. The official employees usually have busier routines and do not have much time to care for themselves. The business will help them to maintain a healthier diet by providing them with a suitable diet plan. Troy is not overly populated and has a total population of around 90,000. The people of the city are observed as health conscious so there is a major possibility that they will be fascinated towards the services offered by the company. The city is in Oakland County and the estimated population density is 2,514.34 per square mile. These kinds of cities are usually favorable for new businesses as the markets are not massive and it is easier for a new business venture to sustain within the market.

Competitive Analysis

The food market of Troy has a vast competition among the organizations. The most prominent competitors of SafeMeal present in the market are Clean Eatz , The Michigan Meal Prep Company, and continental restaurants. All these ensure the provision of high-quality meal to the customers. However, they do not safe meal plans as they are offered by the new business venture. Moreover, the business is also based on nutrition counselling so there are some competitors in this regard too. The company must be able to sustain among all the competitors and it has got all the basics covered and it would be convenient to attract the desired number of customers. To thoroughly analyze the competition that can be faced by the business, the concept of porter’s five forces will be utilized. This analysis will be based on the evaluation of the suppliers, buyers, competitors, substitutes, and the possible new entries. To ensure our customers, we are providing a list of our organic products to show the customers where our product is being bought from to show that nothing is being processed, we prove healthy meals for our customers.

The most important materials that is required to be procured are the ingredients. The main suppliers are the farmers and the local producers who manufacture homemade spices. The supplier has immense power in this regard as the quality of the products depends upon the materials that are provided from the suppliers. The suppliers have the liberty to raise the prices of the materials, so they possess a lot of power in this scenario. The business will have to take care of the concerns of the suppliers, so there is a firm bonding between the stakeholders and the employers. The next thing that has to be considered while analyzing the competitive analysis is the buyer’ power. The buyer of the market has a lot of power as all the productivity of the business depends upon the sales rate. The market is favorable for the business as a lot of people are vigilant towards buying the food products that are good for their health so it can be considered as a plus point of the business.

Considering the importance of competitive rivalry, it is quite evident that the business has developed effective strategies as it offers the customers with different products as compared to the competitors so the business will be able to accomplish the desired competitive advantage.

The threat of substitute is one of the core aspects that must be considered by a business. It is the most prominent factor that can affect the productivity of SafeMeal as there is always a chance of the presence product within the market. Therefore, SafeMeal must take care of this aspect and should make its product unique as compared to the others to avoid the issues relevant to the substitution. Moreover, the threat of new entrant can always be faced by any organization but the provision of quality products to the customers will maintain the customer satisfaction due to which it would not be possible for a new entrant to impact the competitive advantage of SafeMeal.

Financial Projections

Financial Projections for the first 12 months of the business are as follows. These values will keep on increasing in the same manner for the first three years.

The business will be started with a savings capital of $ 25000 which is shown as the beginning cash balance of the first year. The owners will also put in some cash in the business monthly, so that the business can operate profitably. SafeMeal is expecting to receive profits within the six months of business.

Go/No-Go (Feasibility) Recommendations

The findings have revealed that the business will be feasible, and it has got all the potential to accomplish the targeted aims. The adaptation of social media marketing facilities and the purchasing of advanced machinery for the sake of the provision of hygienic food would play a massive role in ensuring that the business achieves the desired advantage over the competitors. Troy’s market is nor massive but still it has a lot of food organizations which have already submitted their mark within the market. SafeMeal must cater all the challenges presented by the competitors with great aptitude and proficiency. The competitors are not providing customers with such packages that are provided by the new business venture so the company will be having an upper hand while entering the market. Moreover, the pieces of machinery must be selected with care and proficiency because a lot of costs will be invested in the purchase of the machines. Concluding the feasibility analysis, it can be said that SafeMeal has got all the basics covered to be a success story within the overall business sector.

When you finish reading the passage, follow the instructions below for writing the essay
Background:
Jürgen Habermas argues that in capitalists democracies, political systems are blamed for economic problems in order to sustain the economic system. Below is an excerpt from the Chambliss and Eglitis textbook:

Leaders in modern democratic capitalist societies such as the United States are caught between potentially contradictory demands. They seek widespread popular support, yet they must satisfy the demands of the elites whose financial backing is essential for electoral success. On one hand, voters are likely to look to their political leaders to back benefits such as retirement income (in the form of Social Security, for instance), housing supports (affordable housing for low-income families or mortgage tax breaks for wealthier ones), and environmental protection. On the other hand, such programs are costly to implement and entail economic costs to corporations, developers, and other members of the elite. Some theorists argue that modern governments thus are caught in a conflict between their need to realize the interests of the capitalist class and their desire to win the support and loyalty of other classes (Held, 1989; Offe, 1984; Wolfe, 1977).

Jürgen Habermas (1976), a contemporary theorist with a conflict orientation, argues that modern countries have integrated their economic and political systems, reducing the likelihood of economic crisis while increasing the chances of a political crisis. He terms this the legitimation crisis. Governments have intervened in the market and, to some degree, solved the most acute contradictions of capitalism—including extreme income inequalities and tumultuous economic cycles—that Marx argued could be addressed only in a proletarian revolution. Governments often act to keep inflation and deflation in check, to regulate interest rates, and to provide social assistance to those who have lost jobs. Thus, economics is politicized, and the citizenry may come to expect that economic troubles will be solved through state structures and social welfare.

To understand Habermas’s argument more fully, imagine a postindustrial U.S. city. The loss of jobs and industries manifests itself as a crisis—thousands of jobs in auto and other manufacturing industries move abroad, local businesses suffer as the amount of disposable income held by local people plummets, and economic pain is acute. How, in modern society, does our hypothetical city (which has hundreds of authentic counterparts in the United States) respond? Does it erupt in revolutionary fervor, with displaced laborers calling for class struggle? Or do people look to their local, state, and federal governments to provide relief in the form of tax cuts or credits, unemployment benefits, and plans for attracting new industries?

The citizenry of modern capitalism, says Habermas, does not widely question the legitimacy of capitalism. If there is a crisis, it is political, and it is solved with policies that may smooth capitalism’s bumpy ride. In a sense, the state becomes the focus of discontent—in a democracy, political decision makers can be changed and a crisis averted. The economic system that brings many of these crises into being, however, remains in shadow, its legitimacy rarely questioned.
-Chambliss and Eglitis, 2020, pp.402-405

Reading the above passage from your textbook, it is interesting to note how Jürgen Habermas argues that capitalism is sustained by the interplay between political and economic systems. As long as the capitalist system is intact, economic elites, including multinational corporations, are able to continue to grow their profits at the expense of growing inequalities that other social classes must endure. Why don’t the masses overthrow the capitalist system?

Habermas argues that citizens in democratic capitalist societies tend to blame their economic problems on politically elected leaders rather than on capitalism itself.
In a representative democracy, elected officials are obliged to make corrections to the economy if that is what their electorate is demanding (i.e., lower taxes, send out relief checks, provide more public services, etc…).
Habermas argues that, as a result of these politically motivated corrections made to the economy, citizens are not able see the true ugliness of capitalism.
This ensures that the capitalist system maintains it’s legitimacy as it is never identified as a cause of people’s suffering.
Thus, Habermas argues that by framing economic problems as a political crisis, the political system is blamed for economic problems. This maintains the legitimacy of the economic system and prevents the formation of a revolt against capitalism.

By Daniel Kahneman, New York Times

Oct. 19, 2011

Many decades ago I spent what seemed like a great deal of time under a scorching sun, watching groups of sweaty soldiers as they solved a problem. I was doing my national service in the Israeli Army at the time. I had completed an undergraduate degree in psychology, and after a year as an infantry officer, I was assigned to the army’s Psychology Branch, where one of my occasional duties was to help evaluate candidates for officer training. We used methods that were developed by the British Army in World War II.

One test, called the leaderless group challenge, was conducted on an obstacle field. Eight candidates, strangers to one another, with all insignia of rank removed and only numbered tags to identify them, were instructed to lift a long log from the ground and haul it to a wall about six feet high. There, they were told that the entire group had to get to the other side of the wall without the log touching either the ground or the wall, and without anyone touching the wall. If any of these things happened, they were to acknowledge it and start again.

A common solution was for several men to reach the other side by crawling along the log as the other men held it up at an angle, like a giant fishing rod. Then one man would climb onto another’s shoulder and tip the log to the far side. The last two men would then have to jump up at the log, now suspended from the other side by those who had made it over, shinny their way along its length and then leap down safely once they crossed the wall. Failure was common at this point, which required starting over.

As a colleague and I monitored the exercise, we made note of who took charge, who tried to lead but was rebuffed, how much each soldier contributed to the group effort. We saw who seemed to be stubborn, submissive, arrogant, patient, hot-tempered, persistent or a quitter. We sometimes saw competitive spite when someone whose idea had been rejected by the group no longer worked very hard. And we saw reactions to crisis: who berated a comrade whose mistake caused the whole group to fail, who stepped forward to lead when the exhausted team had to start over. Under the stress of the event, we felt, each man’s true nature revealed itself in sharp relief.

After watching the candidates go through several such tests, we had to summarize our impressions of the soldiers’ leadership abilities with a grade and determine who would be eligible for officer training. We spent some time discussing each case and reviewing our impressions. The task was not difficult, because we had already seen each of these soldiers’ leadership skills. Some of the men looked like strong leaders, others seemed like wimps or arrogant fools, others mediocre but not hopeless. Quite a few appeared to be so weak that we ruled them out as officer candidates. When our multiple observations of each candidate converged on a coherent picture, we were completely confident in our evaluations and believed that what we saw pointed directly to the future. The soldier who took over when the group was in trouble and led the team over the wall was a leader at that moment. The obvious best guess about how he would do in training, or in combat, was that he would be as effective as he had been at the wall. Any other prediction seemed inconsistent with what we saw.

Because our impressions of how well each soldier performed were generally coherent and clear, our formal predictions were just as definite. We rarely experienced doubt or conflicting impressions. We were quite willing to declare: “This one will never make it,” “That fellow is rather mediocre, but should do O.K.” or “He will be a star.” We felt no need to question our forecasts, moderate them or equivocate. If challenged, however, we were fully prepared to admit, “But of course anything could happen.”

We were willing to make that admission because, as it turned out, despite our certainty about the potential of individual candidates, our forecasts were largely useless. The evidence was overwhelming. Every few months we had a feedback session in which we could compare our evaluations of future cadets with the judgments of their commanders at the officer-training school. The story was always the same: our ability to predict performance at the school was negligible. Our forecasts were better than blind guesses, but not by much.

We were downcast for a while after receiving the discouraging news. But this was the army. Useful or not, there was a routine to be followed, and there were orders to be obeyed. Another batch of candidates would arrive the next day. We took them to the obstacle field, we faced them with the wall, they lifted the log and within a few minutes we saw their true natures revealed, as clearly as ever. The dismal truth about the quality of our predictions had no effect whatsoever on how we evaluated new candidates and very little effect on the confidence we had in our judgments and predictions.

I thought that what was happening to us was remarkable. The statistical evidence of our failure should have shaken our confidence in our judgments of particular candidates, but it did not. It should also have caused us to moderate our predictions, but it did not. We knew as a general fact that our predictions were little better than random guesses, but we continued to feel and act as if each particular prediction was valid. I was reminded of visual illusions, which remain compelling even when you know that what you see is false. I was so struck by the analogy that I coined a term for our experience: the illusion of validity.

I had discovered my first cognitive fallacy.

Decades later, I can see many of the central themes of my thinking about judgment in that old experience. One of these themes is that people who face a difficult question often answer an easier one instead, without realizing it. We were required to predict a soldier’s performance in officer training and in combat, but we did so by evaluating his behavior over one hour in an artificial situation. This was a perfect instance of a general rule that I call WYSIATI, “What you see is all there is.” We had made up a story from the little we knew but had no way to allow for what we did not know about the individual’s future, which was almost everything that would actually matter. When you know as little as we did, you should not make extreme predictions like “He will be a star.” The stars we saw on the obstacle field were most likely accidental flickers, in which a coincidence of random events — like who was near the wall — largely determined who became a leader. Other events — some of them also random — would determine later success in training and combat.

You may be surprised by our failure: it is natural to expect the same leadership ability to manifest itself in various situations. But the exaggerated expectation of consistency is a common error. We are prone to think that the world is more regular and predictable than it really is, because our memory automatically and continuously maintains a story about what is going on, and because the rules of memory tend to make that story as coherent as possible and to suppress alternatives. Fast thinking is not prone to doubt.

The confidence we experience as we make a judgment is not a reasoned evaluation of the probability that it is right. Confidence is a feeling, one determined mostly by the coherence of the story and by the ease with which it comes to mind, even when the evidence for the story is sparse and unreliable. The bias toward coherence favors overconfidence. An individual who expresses high confidence probably has a good story, which may or may not be true.

I coined the term “illusion of validity” because the confidence we had in judgments about individual soldiers was not affected by a statistical fact we knew to be true — that our predictions were unrelated to the truth. This is not an isolated observation. When a compelling impression of a particular event clashes with general knowledge, the impression commonly prevails. And this goes for you, too. The confidence you will experience in your future judgments will not be diminished by what you just read, even if you believe every word.

I first visited a Wall Street firm in 1984. I was there with my longtime collaborator Amos Tversky, who died in 1996, and our friend Richard Thaler, now a guru of behavioral economics. Our host, a senior investment manager, had invited us to discuss the role of judgment biases in investing. I knew so little about finance at the time that I had no idea what to ask him, but I remember one exchange. “When you sell a stock,” I asked him, “who buys it?” He answered with a wave in the vague direction of the window, indicating that he expected the buyer to be someone else very much like him. That was odd: because most buyers and sellers know that they have the same information as one another, what made one person buy and the other sell? Buyers think the price is too low and likely to rise; sellers think the price is high and likely to drop. The puzzle is why buyers and sellers alike think that the current price is wrong.

Most people in the investment business have read Burton Malkiel’s wonderful book “A Random Walk Down Wall Street.” Malkiel’s central idea is that a stock’s price incorporates all the available knowledge about the value of the company and the best predictions about the future of the stock. If some people believe that the price of a stock will be higher tomorrow, they will buy more of it today. This, in turn, will cause its price to rise. If all assets in a market are correctly priced, no one can expect either to gain or to lose by trading.

We now know, however, that the theory is not quite right. Many individual investors lose consistently by trading, an achievement that a dart-throwing chimp could not match. The first demonstration of this startling conclusion was put forward by Terry Odean, a former student of mine who is now a finance professor at the University of California, Berkeley.

Odean analyzed the trading records of 10,000 brokerage accounts of individual investors over a seven-year period, allowing him to identify all instances in which an investor sold one stock and soon afterward bought another stock. By these actions the investor revealed that he (most of the investors were men) had a definite idea about the future of two stocks: he expected the stock that he bought to do better than the one he sold.

To determine whether those appraisals were well founded, Odean compared the returns of the two stocks over the following year. The results were unequivocally bad. On average, the shares investors sold did better than those they bought, by a very substantial margin: 3.3 percentage points per year, in addition to the significant costs of executing the trades. Some individuals did much better, others did much worse, but the large majority of individual investors would have done better by taking a nap rather than by acting on their ideas. In a paper titled “Trading Is Hazardous to Your Wealth,” Odean and his colleague Brad Barber showed that, on average, the most active traders had the poorest results, while those who traded the least earned the highest returns. In another paper, “Boys Will Be Boys,” they reported that men act on their useless ideas significantly more often than women do, and that as a result women achieve better investment results than men.

Of course, there is always someone on the other side of a transaction; in general, it’s a financial institution or professional investor, ready to take advantage of the mistakes that individual traders make. Further research by Barber and Odean has shed light on these mistakes. Individual investors like to lock in their gains; they sell “winners,” stocks whose prices have gone up, and they hang on to their losers. Unfortunately for them, in the short run going forward recent winners tend to do better than recent losers, so individuals sell the wrong stocks. They also buy the wrong stocks. Individual investors predictably flock to stocks in companies that are in the news. Professional investors are more selective in responding to news. These findings provide some justification for the label of “smart money” that finance professionals apply to themselves.

Although professionals are able to extract a considerable amount of wealth from amateurs, few stock pickers, if any, have the skill needed to beat the market consistently, year after year. The diagnostic for the existence of any skill is the consistency of individual differences in achievement. The logic is simple: if individual differences in any one year are due entirely to luck, the ranking of investors and funds will vary erratically and the year-to-year correlation will be zero. Where there is skill, however, the rankings will be more stable. The persistence of individual differences is the measure by which we confirm the existence of skill among golfers, orthodontists or speedy toll collectors on the turnpike.

Mutual funds are run by highly experienced and hard-working professionals who buy and sell stocks to achieve the best possible results for their clients. Nevertheless, the evidence from more than 50 years of research is conclusive: for a large majority of fund managers, the selection of stocks is more like rolling dice than like playing poker. At least two out of every three mutual funds underperform the overall market in any given year.

More important, the year-to-year correlation among the outcomes of mutual funds is very small, barely different from zero. The funds that were successful in any given year were mostly lucky; they had a good roll of the dice. There is general agreement among researchers that this is true for nearly all stock pickers, whether they know it or not — and most do not. The subjective experience of traders is that they are making sensible, educated guesses in a situation of great uncertainty. In highly efficient markets, however, educated guesses are not more accurate than blind guesses.

Some years after my introduction to the world of finance, I had an unusual opportunity to examine the illusion of skill up close. I was invited to speak to a group of investment advisers in a firm that provided financial advice and other services to very wealthy clients. I asked for some data to prepare my presentation and was granted a small treasure: a spreadsheet summarizing the investment outcomes of some 25 anonymous wealth advisers, for eight consecutive years. The advisers’ scores for each year were the main determinant of their year-end bonuses. It was a simple matter to rank the advisers by their performance and to answer a question: Did the same advisers consistently achieve better returns for their clients year after year? Did some advisers consistently display more skill than others?

To find the answer, I computed the correlations between the rankings of advisers in different years, comparing Year 1 with Year 2, Year 1 with Year 3 and so on up through Year 7 with Year 8. That yielded 28 correlations, one for each pair of years. While I was prepared to find little year-to-year consistency, I was still surprised to find that the average of the 28 correlations was .01. In other words, zero. The stability that would indicate differences in skill was not to be found. The results resembled what you would expect from a dice-rolling contest, not a game of skill.

No one in the firm seemed to be aware of the nature of the game that its stock pickers were playing. The advisers themselves felt they were competent professionals performing a task that was difficult but not impossible, and their superiors agreed. On the evening before the seminar, Richard Thaler and I had dinner with some of the top executives of the firm, the people who decide on the size of bonuses. We asked them to guess the year-to-year correlation in the rankings of individual advisers. They thought they knew what was coming and smiled as they said, “not very high” or “performance certainly fluctuates.” It quickly became clear, however, that no one expected the average correlation to be zero.

What we told the directors of the firm was that, at least when it came to building portfolios, the firm was rewarding luck as if it were skill. This should have been shocking news to them, but it was not. There was no sign that they disbelieved us. How could they? After all, we had analyzed their own results, and they were certainly sophisticated enough to appreciate their implications, which we politely refrained from spelling out. We all went on calmly with our dinner, and I am quite sure that both our findings and their implications were quickly swept under the rug and that life in the firm went on just as before. The illusion of skill is not only an individual aberration; it is deeply ingrained in the culture of the industry. Facts that challenge such basic assumptions — and thereby threaten people’s livelihood and self-esteem — are simply not absorbed. The mind does not digest them. This is particularly true of statistical studies of performance, which provide general facts that people will ignore if they conflict with their personal experience.

The next morning, we reported the findings to the advisers, and their response was equally bland. Their personal experience of exercising careful professional judgment on complex problems was far more compelling to them than an obscure statistical result. When we were done, one executive I dined with the previous evening drove me to the airport. He told me, with a trace of defensiveness, “I have done very well for the firm, and no one can take that away from me.” I smiled and said nothing. But I thought, privately: Well, I took it away from you this morning. If your success was due mostly to chance, how much credit are you entitled to take for it?

We often interact with professionals who exercise their judgment with evident confidence, sometimes priding themselves on the power of their intuition. In a world rife with illusions of validity and skill, can we trust them? How do we distinguish the justified confidence of experts from the sincere overconfidence of professionals who do not know they are out of their depth? We can believe an expert who admits uncertainty but cannot take expressions of high confidence at face value. As I first learned on the obstacle field, people come up with coherent stories and confident predictions even when they know little or nothing. Overconfidence arises because people are often blind to their own blindness.

True intuitive expertise is learned from prolonged experience with good feedback on mistakes. You are probably an expert in guessing your spouse’s mood from one word on the telephone; chess players find a strong move in a single glance at a complex position; and true legends of instant diagnoses are common among physicians. To know whether you can trust a particular intuitive judgment, there are two questions you should ask: Is the environment in which the judgment is made sufficiently regular to enable predictions from the available evidence? The answer is yes for diagnosticians, no for stock pickers. Do the professionals have an adequate opportunity to learn the cues and the regularities? The answer here depends on the professionals’ experience and on the quality and speed with which they discover their mistakes. Anesthesiologists have a better chance to develop intuitions than radiologists do. Many of the professionals we encounter easily pass both tests, and their off-the-cuff judgments deserve to be taken seriously. In general, however, you should not take assertive and confident people at their own evaluation unless you have independent reason to believe that they know what they are talking about. Unfortunately, this advice is difficult to follow: overconfident professionals sincerely believe they have expertise, act as experts and look like experts. You will have to struggle to remind yourself that they may be in the grip of an illusion.
