Question 4282: spiritual case study

The purpose of this paper is to complete a comparative ethical analysis of the case study *attached* to study George’s situation and decision from the perspective of two worldviews or religions:Christianity and Judaism.

PART 1

In your comparative analysis, address all of the worldview questions in detail for Christianity and the Jewish faith. Refer to the the list of questions below. Once you have outlined the worldview of each religion, begin your ethical analysis from each perspective.
To understand the concept of worldview, answer the following questions:

  • What is prime reality?
  • What is the nature of the world around us?
  • What is a human being?
  • What happens to a person at death?
  • Why is it possible to know anything at all?
  • How do we know what is right and wrong?
  • What is the meaning of human history?

PART 2

In 1,500-2,000 words, provide an ethical analysis based upon the different belief systems, reinforcing
major themes with insights gained from your research, and answering the following questions based on the research: (USE THE ATTACHED CASE STUDY FOR THIS PART)
1. How  would each religion interpret the nature of George’s malady and suffering? Is there a “why” to his disease and suffering? (i.e., is there a reason for why George is ill, beyond the reality of physical malady?)
2. In George’s analysis of his own life, how would each religion think about the  value of his life as a person, and value of his life with ALS?

3. What  Sorts of values and considerations would each religion focus on in deliberating about whether or not George should opt for euthanasia?
4. Given  the above, what options would be morally justified under each religion for George and why?
5. Finally,  present and defend your own view (Christian but does not practice the faith actively, believes in god and jesus, heaven and hell but more conservative in the ideas to choose our own path and life choices vs. god’s will).

Support your position by referencing at least three academic resources in addition to the course readings, lectures, the Bible, and the textbooks for each religion. Each religion must have a primary source included. A total of six references are required according to the specifications listed above.
Incorporate the research into your writing in an appropriate, scholarly manner.
Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required

Question 4283:

Is the use of soap and water or alcohol-based rubs more effective in preventing nosocomial infections one answer to each discussion.

Discussion 1

Review the following research questions.

Is the use of soap and water or alcohol-based rubs more effective in preventing nosocomial infections?
Identify an appropriate research design.
An appropriate research design for this research question is quantitative research with an experimental design.
Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the design.
According to Roger Watson (2015), quantitative studies produce numbers that should be interpreted before conclusions may be drawn. This can be considered a strength for this design as numbers allows the researcher to draw conclusion easily. An area of weakness is the idea that the opportunity for error cannot be eliminated entirely. According to Watson (2015) “it is essential to store data carefully, once it has been entered into any package, since loss can jeopardize the study”.
Provide a rationale for the design you selected.
This design allows the research to manipulate the independent variable in order to study the effect it has on the dependent variable. In this case, the researcher is able to identify the effect of soap and water on the prevention of nosocomial infections and the effect is alcohol-based rubs on the prevention if nosocomial infections. The number of occurrences will be compared to draw a conclusion
How effective are anti-depressive medications on anxiety and depression?
Identify an appropriate research design.
An appropriate research design for this research question is qualitative design.
Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the design.
According to Leslie Gelling (2014), while utilizing qualitative research, nurses to understand health and illness experiences and offer ‘compassionate, person-centered care. This is considered to be a strength for this design. Gelling also stated that “a poorly worded question might lead the research in the wrong
direction, wasting the researcher’s time and, more importantly, wasting the research participants’ time if the chosen methodology is unable to answer the question (Gelling, 2014). This is the weakness of this design.
Provide a rationale for the design you selected.
Qualitative research is an approach to scientific inquiry that allows researchers to explore human experiences in personal and social contexts, and gain greater understanding of the factors influencing these experiences.
What is the difference in attitudes of male and female college students toward condoms?
Identify an appropriate research design.

An appropriate research design for this research question is a qualitative descriptive design. In a descriptive study without manipulating any variables.
Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the design.
According to Pathak, Jena, and Kalra (2013), qualitative research is now recognized for its ability to add a new dimension to interventional studies that cannot be obtained through measurement of variables alone. This can be considered to be a strength of this design. Qualitative studies should be well-designed and the aims of the study should be meticulously adjudicated (Pathak, Jena, & Kalra, 2013). On the other hand, descriptive research also presents the possibility for error and subjectivity. Confidentiality is the primary weakness of descriptive research (Murphy, n.d.). Often subjects are not truthful as they feel the need to tell the researcher what they think the researcher wants to hear (Murphy, n.d.).

Provide a rationale for the design you selected.
Qualitative method is used to understand people’s beliefs, experiences, attitudes, behavior, and interactions.

discussion 2

Use of Soap and Water Versus Alcohol-Based Rubs to Prevent Nosocomial Infections.
The study chosen for this topic researched the effects of waterless hand rubs versus the traditional hand scrubbing method to prevent infections in surgical rooms.  One hundred operating room staff members from different medical centers were divided into two groups of fifty participants (Chen, Han, Kan, Chen & Hung, 2012).  One group used waterless hand rubs and the other group of workers used traditional hand washing techniques as part of the scrubbing process for surgeries.  The hands of the participants
were scrubbed and a bacterial culture was done on the two groups of participants (Chen et al., 2012).
After a forty-eight hour period of bacterial growth of both samples, the results demonstrated bacteria growth was equal among the two groups (Chen et al., 2012).  There were no statistical significance found.  The study concluded that alcohol-based rubs and water provide the same level of protection among operating room staff (Chen et al., 2012).

Strengths and Weaknesses

One of the strengths of the study was the method of conducting the study was the same among the two participant groups (Chen et al., 2012).  The time the participants took in applying the alcohol-based rub and washing hands were the same.  The weakness of the study was the participant sample was rather
small (Chen et al., 2012).  A larger study conducted at different facilities provides better evidence of the findings.  Also, a study with a larger sample population may have also resulted in different findings (Chen et al., 2012).
Rationale for the Design The study selected is a quantitative research that attempted to estimate the required scrubbing times using alcohol-based scrubs and traditional handwashing technique for operating room staff (Chen et al.,
2012).Also the study focused on comparing the use of alcohol-based hand rubs versus the traditional handwashing techniques in prevention of nosocomial infections in the operating room (Chen et al.,2012).

Relationship Between Alcohol and Breast Cancer

The article reviewed focused on possible pathways of alcohol into the breast tissue and possible consequences.  The study also reviewed the women’s age in relations to drinking habits, in an attempt to identify a possible connection between early alcohol consumption among women and breast cancer
(Liu, Nguyen, & Colditz, 2015).  The study concluded that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with higher risk of breast cancer (Liu, Nguyen, & Colditz, 2015).

Strengths and Weaknesses

A strength of the study is there was significant evidence to suggest that the risk of cancer increases by thirty-four percent for those women who had an alcohol intake greater than fifteen drinks per day (Liu, Nguyen, & Colditz, 2015).  A weakness identified in the study was that other lifestyle components that
may increase the risk of breast cancer were not taken into consideration when conducting the study (Liu, Nguyen, & Colditz, 2015).

Rationale for the Design

This research was focused on the possible influence of timing and patterns of alcohol consumption and the possible mechanisms underlying alcohol and breast cancer association.  The possible pathways of alcohol into the breast tissue were studied (Liu, Nguyen, & Colditz, 2015).  The women’s age in relation
to drinking habits for possible connection between early alcohol consumption in women and breast cancer were also studied (Liu, Nguyen, & Colditz, 2015).

Difference in Attitudes Between Male and Female Students Towards Condoms

Female and male participants from a treatment-seeking substance abuse treatment program were studied in relations to their attitudes and skills towards the use of condoms.  The study found that men found more barriers to using condoms than women (Calsyn, Peavy, Wells, Campbell, Hatch-Maillette,
Greenfield & Tross, 2013).  The study used electronic interviews for assessment of skills and attitude towards the use of condom (Calsyn et al., 2013).

Strengths and Weaknesses

A strength of the study was the participants researched were at high risk for unprotected sex practice (Calsyn et al., 2013).  A limitation found in the study was that the information was taken from two different studies that were not designed to compare men and women (Calsyn et al., 2013).  Another limitation of the study was the participants studied were a selected population from a drug abuse
treatment program, which may or may have not influenced the findings (Calsyn et al., 2013).

Rationale for the Design

The reason for the study was to examine the differences between males and females in relationship to condom use; the attitude towards the practice of wearing condom and the skills among both groups
(Calsyn et al., 2013).

Role of the School Nurse

It is the position of the National Association of School Nurses that the professional registered school nurse is the leader in the school community to oversee school health policies and programs. The school nurse serves in a pivotal role to provide expertise and oversight for the provision of school health
services and promotion of health education. Using clinical knowledge and judgment, the school nurse provides health care to students and staff, performs health screenings, and coordinates referrals to the medical home or private health care provider. The school nurse serves as a liaison between school
personnel, family, community and healthcare providers to advocate for health care and a healthy school environment (American Nurses Association & National Association of School Nurses, 2011).
To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community.
 What is FERPA?
 What is HIPAA?
 How do FERPA and HIPAA affect school health privacy?
 What unique health concerns might young people have that differentiate them from adults?

Directions

Create a 6–8-slide PowerPoint presentation that examines the privacy issues unique to nurses serving the high-school age population. Address the following:
 Describe the types of health and wellness issues that can affect adolescents in their high-school years. Be sure you think beyond the usual things and really research the types of issues that are affecting young people today.
 Explain how privacy laws can impact the school nurse in regard to patient safety and health outcomes for adolescents.
 Explain how privacy laws benefit the student, the school, and the school nurse.
 Recommend two specific evidence-based ethical strategies regarding health and wellness privacy communications in a school environment.
Use the notes section of each slide to expand your points and cite your supporting evidence. Also, include a title slide and a reference slide that lists the resources you used in this assessment.
Be creative. Consider your intended audience.

Question 4288: Depressive Disorders

The National Institutes of Mental Health acknowledges that depression is one of the most common mental disorders in the United States. It is associated with significant disability, fiscal impact, and considerable personal suffering. It may have significant impact on the individual, their family, and their social network. The PMHNP must be capable of providing comprehensive care for depressive disorders, including both psychotherapy and psychopharmacologic approaches.
This week, you will become “captain of the ship” as you take full responsibility for a client with a depressive disorder. You will recommend psychopharmacologic treatment and psychotherapy, identify medical management needs and community support, and recommend follow-up plans. You will also explore how to obtain a DEA license and the responsibilities for safe prescribing and prescription monitoring.
“Captain of the Ship” – Depressive Disorder

As nurse practitioners strive to achieve full-autonomous practice across the country, it should be noted that many states grant this ability to practice independently to psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners. To that end, you will be engaging in projects this semester that assume that you are practicing in a state that allows full-practice authority for NPs, meaning that the PMHNP may be the “captain of the ship” concerning caring for a patient population. The “captain of the ship” is the one who makes referrals to specialists, coordinates care for their patients/clients, and is responsible and accountable for patient/client outcomes overall. This is a decided change from a few decades ago when
physicians were the “captain of the ship” and NPs played a peripheral role.
In this Assignment, you will become the “captain of the ship” as you provide treatment recommendations and identify medical management, community support resources, and follow-up plans for a client with a depression disorder.

Learning Objectives

Students will:
· Recommend psychopharmacologic treatments based on therapeutic endpoints
for clients with depression disorders
· Recommend psychotherapy based on therapeutic endpoints for clients with
depression disorders
· Identify medical management needs for clients with depression disorders
· Identify community support resources for clients with depression disorders
· Recommend follow-up plans for clients with depression disorders
Assignment (Project)
To prepare for this Assignment:
 Select an adult or older adult client with a depressive disorder you have seen in your practicum. In 3–4 pages, write a treatment plan for your client in which you do the following:
 Describe the HPI and clinical impression for the client. Recommend psychopharmacologic treatments and describe specific and therapeutic endpoints for your psychopharmacologic agent. (This should relate to HPI and clinical impression.)
 Recommend psychotherapy choices (individual, family, and group) and specific therapeutic endpoints for      your choices.

 Identify medical management needs, including primary care needs, specific to this client.
 Identify community support resources (housing, socioeconomic needs, etc.) and community agencies that are available to assist the client. Recommend a plan for follow-up intensity and frequency and collaboration with other providers including PCP or medical provider.

Tip for the Assignment

This week assignment, you will ‘captain the ship’ you are the provider and writing the diagnostic work- up and treatment plan for a patient with DEPRESSIVE DISORDER. You will develop plans for a patient
that you have worked with in your practicum.
A few comments about the ‘Captain of the Ship’ assignment. The spirit of the assignment is that you are directing the client’s care, not simply writing a paper about depressive disorder. When you are the team leader, it’s important to provide authoritative direction for other providers. In your treatment plan, it’s
good to outline your collaboration with client’s other providers. Later in the quarter, you will have another opportunity to complete ‘Captain of the Ship’ project.
I have attached an excellent example of a different Captain of the Ship project with this assignment and.
Note that this assignment is on depressive disorder, not on Obsessive Compulsive.

Question 4289: Group Processes

Group therapy is an effective treatment option for a wide range of disorders and is much more cost- efficient than individual therapy. As a result, many insurance companies are showing preference for group therapy over individual therapy. This has led to more therapists including group therapy in their practices, making it very likely that you will facilitate group therapy in the future. To successfully develop groups and apply this therapeutic approach, it is essential for you to have an understanding of group processes and formation.
This week, as you examine group processes and stages of formation, you explore curative factors of groups and strategies for managing intragroup conflict. You also assess progress for a client family receiving psychotherapy and develop progress and privileged psychotherapy notes for the family.

Assignment: Group Processes and Stages of Formation
In your role, you must understand group processes and stages of formation, as this will help you develop groups and determine an individual’s appropriateness for group therapy. Whether you are at the beginning stages of group formation or facilitating a session for a developed group, it is important to consider factors that may influence individual client progress.
For this Assignment, as you examine the video Group Therapy: A Live Demonstration in this week’s

Learning Resources

Consider the group’s processes, stages of formation, and other factors that might
impact the effectiveness of group therapy for clients.
To prepare:
· Review this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on the insights they provide
on group processes.
· View the media, Group Therapy: A Live Demonstration, and consider the group
dynamics. (THE VIDEO TRANSCRIPT IS ATTACHED TO THIS ASSIGNMENT)

The Assignment
In 3-page paper, address the following:
· Explain the group’s processes and stage of formation.
· Explain curative factors that occurred in the group. Include how these factors
might impact client progress.
· Explain intragroup conflict that occurred and recommend strategies for
managing the conflict. Support your recommendations with evidence-based
literature.

Question 4290:

Compare and contrast two change theories, and determine which theory makes the most sense for implementing your specific EBP project. Why? Has your mentor used either theory, and to what result? This is for a nursing school assignment.
This is for a nursing school assignment. My project is catheter related urinary tract infection(UTI), and the theory supposed to be a nursing field. I need it as soon as possible. At least two references (peer reviewed research paper or a 1 book and 1 research paper).

Question 4291: Planned Change in a Department or Unit

Assignment: Application: Planned Change
in a Department or Unit Health care organizations are continuously immersed in change from the emergence of new policies, to promote quality care and improve patient safety to keeping pace with the rapid growth in knowledge and best practices. Establishing a solid framework for planning and implementing change is a wise move, as it provides a foundation for the extensive coordination that will be needed to successfully facilitate the change.
For this Assignment, you propose a change at the department or unit level and develop a plan for guiding the change effort.
To prepare:
 Review Chapter 8 in the course text. Focus on Kurt Lewin’s change theory, and contrast it with other classic change models and strategies.
 Reflect on problems, inefficiencies, and critical issues within a specific department, unit, or area in your organization or one with which you are familiar. Select one issue as a focal point for this assignment, and consider a change that could be made to address the issue.
 Think about how the change would align with the organization’s mission, vision, and values as well as relevant professional standards.
 Using one of the change models or strategies discussed in Chapter 8, begin formulating a plan for implementing the change within the department/unit. Outline the steps that you and/or others should follow to facilitate the change effort. Align these steps to the change model or strategy you selected.
 Determine who should be involved in initiating and managing the change. Consider the skills and characteristics that are necessary to facilitate this change effort.
To complete:By Day 7
Write a 3- to 5-page paper (page count does not include title and reference page) that addresses the following:
 Identify a problem, inefficiency, or issue within a specific department/unit.
 Describe a specific, realistic change that could be made to address the issue.
 Summarize how the change would align with the organization’s mission, vision, and values as well as relevant professional standards.

 Identify a change model or strategy to guide your planning for implementing the change. Provide a rationale for your selection.
 Outline the steps that you and/or others would follow to facilitate the change. Align these steps to your selected change model or strategy.
 Explain who would be involved in initiating and managing this change. Describe the skills and characteristics that would be necessary to facilitate the change effort.
Reminder: The School of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction, summary, and references.

Question 4292: ESSENTIALS OF EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE

Course Project: Part 3—Translating Evidence Into Practice

In Part 3 of the Course Project, you consider how the evidence you gathered during Part 2 can be translated into nursing practice.

(Link for part 1 – https://www.homeworkmarket.com/content/nurs-5052nurs-6052-essentials- evidence-based-practice-course-project-part-1-grading-rubic-an)

(Link for part 2 – https://www.homeworkmarket.com/content/nurs-5052nurs-6052-essentials- evidence-based-practice-course-project-part-2-grading-rubic-an)

Now that you have located available research on your PICOT question, you will examine what the research indicates about nursing practices. Connecting research evidence and findings to actual decisions and tasks that nurses complete in their daily practice is essentially what evidence-based practice is all about. This final component of the Course Project asks you to translate the evidence and data from your literature review into authentic practices that can be adopted to improve health care outcomes. In addition, you will also consider possible methods and strategies for disseminating evidence-based practices to your colleagues and to the broader health care field.

To prepare:

Consider Parts 1 and 2 of your Course Project. How does the research address your PICOT question?

With your PICOT question in mind, identify at least one nursing practice that is supported by the evidence in two or more of the articles from your literature review. Consider what the evidence indicates about how this practice contributes to better outcomes.
Explore possible consequences of failing to adopt the evidence-based practice that you identified.
Consider how you would disseminate information about this evidence-based practice throughout your organization or practice setting. How would you communicate the importance of the practice?

To complete:

In a 3- to 4-page paper:

Restate your PICOT question and its significance to nursing practice.
Summarize the findings from the articles you selected for your literature review. Describe at least one nursing practice that is supported by the evidence in the articles. Justify your response with specific references to at least 2 of the articles.
Explain how the evidence-based practice that you identified contributes to better outcomes. In addition, identify potential negative outcomes that could result from failing to use the evidence-based practice.
Outline the strategy for disseminating the evidence-based practice that you identified throughout your practice setting. Explain how you would communicate the importance of the practice to your colleagues.
Describe how you would move from disseminating the information to implementing the evidence-based practice within your organization. How would you address concerns and opposition to the change in practice?

This part of the Course Project is due. It should be combined with the other two components of the Course Project and turned in as your Portfolio Assignment for this course.
Note: In addition, include a 1-page summary of your project.
You will combine Parts 1, 2, and 3 of your Course Project (assigned in Weeks 2, 4, and 8 respectively) into one cohesive and cogent paper.

For this final iteration, you will need to:

Submit your paper to Grammarly and SafeAssign through the Walden Writing Center. Based on the Grammarly and SafeAssign reports, revise your paper as necessary.
Reminder: The School of Nursing requires that all papers submitted include a title page, introduction, summary, and references. The School of Nursing Sample Paper provided at the Walden Writing Center provides an example of those required elements (available from the Walden University website found in
this week’s Learning Resources). All papers submitted must use this formatting.

Question 4301: Mental Health Practicum

Client Termination Summary

Although termination is an inevitable part of the therapeutic process, it is often difficult for clients.
However, by discussing termination throughout therapy, you can better prepare your clients for life without you. Once a client has achieved his or her therapeutic goals, termination sessions should be held and documented in a client termination summary.
For this Assignment, you have the opportunity to practice writing a termination summary for a client with whom you have worked during your practicum experience.

Learning Objectives

Students will:
· Develop client termination summaries
To prepare:
· For guidance on writing a client termination summary, review pages 693–712 of
Wheeler (2014) in this week’s Learning Resources.
· Identify a client who may be ready to terminate therapy.
The Assignment
· Identifying information of client (e.g., hypothetical name and age)
· Date the client initially contacted therapist, date therapy began, duration of
therapy, and date therapy will end
· Total number of sessions, including number of missed sessions
· Whether termination was planned or unplanned
· Presenting problem
· Major psychosocial issues
· Types of services rendered (e.g., individual, couple/family therapy, group therapy)
· Overview of treatment process
· Goal status (goals met, partially met, unmet)
· Treatment limitations (if any)
· Remaining difficulties and/or concerns
· Recommendations

Question 4310: Identifying a Researchable Problem

For the Course Project, you identify and apply relevant research to a specific nursing topic or problem.
You begin by formulating an answerable question that is relevant to nursing and evidence-based practice. In later weeks of this course, you continue the Course Project by conducting a literature review and then determining how the evidence from the literature can be applied to nursing practice.

Before you begin, review the Course Project Overview document located in this week’s Learning

Resources.

Course Project: Part 1—Identifying a Researchable Problem
One of the most challenging aspects of EBP is to actually identify the answerable question.—Karen Sue Davies
Formulating a question that targets the goal of your research is a challenging but essential task. The question plays a crucial role in all other aspects of the research, including the determination of the research design and theoretical perspective to be applied, which data will be collected, and which tools
will be used for analysis. It is therefore essential to take the time to ensure that the research question addresses what you actually want to study. Doing so will increase your likelihood of obtaining meaningful results.
In this first component of the Course Project, you formulate questions to address a particular nursing issue or problem. You use the PICOT model—patient/population, intervention/issue, comparison, and outcome—outlined in the Learning Resources to design your questions.
To prepare:
 Review the article, “Formulating the Evidence Based      Practice Question: A Review of the Frameworks,” found in the Learning      Resources for this week. Focus on the PICOT model for guiding the development of research questions.
 Review the section beginning on page 71 of the course      text, titled, “Developing and Refining Research Problems” in the course text, which focuses on analyzing the feasibility of a research problem.
 Reflect on an issue or problem that you have noticed in      your nursing practice. Consider the significance of this issue or problem.
 Generate at least five questions that relate to the issue which you have identified. Use the criteria in your course text to select one question that would be most appropriate in terms of significance, feasibility, and interest. Be prepared to explain your rationale.
 Formulate a preliminary PICO question—one that is answerable—based      on your analysis.
What are the PICO variables (patient/population,      intervention/issue, comparison, and outcome) for this question?
Note: Not all of these variables may be appropriate to every question. Be sure to analyze which are and are not relevant to your specific question.

 Using the PICOT variables that you determined for your question, develop a list of at least 10 keywords that could be used when conducting a literature search to investigate current research pertaining to the question.
To complete:
Write a 3- to 4-page paper that includes the following:
 A summary of your area of interest, an identification      of the problem that you have selected, and an explanation of the      significance of this problem for nursing practice
 The 5 questions you have generated and a description of      how you analyzed them for feasibility
 Your preliminary PICOT question and a description of      each PICOT variable relevant to your question
 At least 10 possible keywords that could be used when conducting a literature search for your PICOT question and a rationale for your selections

Question 4311: Dashboard Benchmark Evaluation

Review the performance dashboard for a health care organization, as well as relevant local, state, and federal laws and policies. Then, write a report for senior leaders in the organization that communicates your analysis and evaluation of the current state of organizational performance, including a recommended metric to target for improvement.
Maintaining standards and promoting quality in modern health care are crucial, not only for the care of patients, but also for the continuing success and financial viability of health care organizations. In the era of health care reform, health care leaders must understand what quality care entails and how quality in health care connects to the standards set by relevant federal, state, and local laws and
policies. An understanding of relevant benchmarks that result from these laws and policies, and how they relate to quality care and regulatory standards, is also vitally important.
· Health care is a dynamic, complex, and heavily regulated industry. For this reason, you will be expected to constantly scan the external environment for emerging laws, new regulations, and changing industry standards. You may discover that as new policies are enacted into law, ambiguity in interpretation of
various facets of the law may occur. Sometimes, new laws conflict with preexisting laws and regulations, or unexpected implementation issues arise, which may warrant further clarification from lawmakers.
Adding partisan politics and social media to the mix can further complicate understanding of the process and buy-in from stakeholders.
How many health care laws can you name that affect your practice in your current or future workplace?
How do they impact your daily work? How many regulatory agencies oversee the types of services your health care organization provides? Which regulatory agencies apply to your workplace setting? Are you familiar with the process of complying with those agencies in order to maintain certification? You might
be overwhelmed as you consider these broad questions.
· As you prepare to complete this assessment, you may want to think about other related issues to deepen your understanding or broaden your viewpoint. You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend or family member, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as part of your assessment.
What local, state, or federal health care policies or laws set benchmarks and standards reflected in performance dashboards common in your professional area of practice?
· What are the potential challenges or opportunities for health care organizations or interprofessional teams in meeting prescribed performance benchmarks and standards? Factors you might consider include the organization’s mission, its size and resources, operational policies and procedures, and the population the organization serves.
· Preparation
For this assessment, you may choose one of the following three options for a performance dashboard to use as the basis for your benchmark evaluation.
Option 1: Dashboard and Health Care Benchmark Evaluation Simulation
If you decide to use one of the simulation dashboards for your evaluation, review both dashboards, as well as the relevant local, state, and federal laws and policies linked in each dashboard. Choose one of the dashboards and consider the metrics within it  that are falling short of the prescribed benchmarks.
Option 2: Actual Dashboard From a Professional Practice Setting
If you choose an actual dashboard from a professional practice setting for your evaluation, be sure to add a brief description of the organization and setting that includes:
· The size of the facility that the dashboard is reporting on.
· The specific type of care delivery.
· The population diversity and ethnicity demographics.
· The socioeconomic level of the population served by the organization.
Note: Ensure that your data is Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant. Do
not use any easily identifiable organization or patient information.
Option 3: Hypothetical Dashboard Based on a Professional Practice Setting

If you have a sophisticated understanding of dashboards that are relevant to your own practice, you
may also construct a hypothetical dashboard for your evaluation, based on that setting. Your hypothetical dashboard must present at least four different metrics, at least two of which must be under-performing the relevant benchmark set forth by a federal, state, or local laws or policies. In addition, be sure to add a brief description of the organization and setting that includes:
· The size of the facility that the dashboard is reporting on.
· The specific type of care delivery.
· The population diversity and ethnicity demographics.
· The socioeconomic level of the population served by the organization.
Note: Ensure that your data is HIPAA compliant. Do not use any easily identifiable organization or patient information.

Report Requirements

Structure your report in such a way that it would be easy for a colleague or supervisor to locate the information they need. Be sure to cite relevant local, state, or federal health care laws or policies when evaluating metric performance against prescribed benchmarks. Cite an additional 2–4 credible sources
to support your analysis and evaluation of the challenges in meeting the benchmarks, the potential for performance improvement, and your advocacy for ethical action.
Note: The tasks outlined below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide.
In your report, be sure to:

Question 4258: Using Variance Analysis in Decision Making

Assignment: Using Variance Analysis in Decision Making
Having a budget is critical for the financial stability of an organization. Keeping track of how well the organization is actually adhering to the budget, and subsequent identification of why the budget numbers are being missed is equally important. Without this critical “why” piece, it is difficult to make the necessary adjustments to the budget or to organizational behavior that might be promoting
overspending.
A good budget is built with thoughtful consideration of future costs and revenue. Though your budget is formulated with expected figures in mind, the actual resulting values may vary considerably. This variance–from projected to actual–can be a pleasant surprise or a fiscal nightmare and can make financial decision making difficult. Fortunately, variance analysis can enable management to determinewhy variance occurred and what can be done to mitigate its effects.
For those not comfortable with the use of Microsoft Excel, this week’s Optional Resources suggest several tutorials.

To prepare:

  • Review the information in this week’s Learning Resources dealing with variance analysis, how it is calculated, and how it can be used in decision making.
  • View the video  Week 8 Application Assignment Tutorial: Variance Analysis, provided in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Use the Week 8 Application Assignment Template, provided in this week’s Learning Resources, to complete this assignment.   Carefully examine the information in each of the scenarios and provide the necessary calculations.  Using this information will help you answer the questions.

Question 4261: Advanced Practice Nursing

No Plegarism please, assignment will be checked with Turnitin.
Will need minimum of 5 full pages, title, and reference page APA Style, double spaced, times new roman, font 12, and and (3 references within 5 years 2014-2018) with intext citations).

Patient care hinges in part on adequate and timely information exchange between treating providers.
Referral and reply letters are common means by which doctors and nurse practitioners exchange information pertinent to patient care. Ensuring that letters meet the needs of letter recipients saves time for clinicians and patients, reduces unnecessary repetition of diagnostic investigations, and helps to avoid patient dissatisfaction and loss of confidence in medical practitioners.
As a Nurse Practitioner (NP) you will need to know the difference between a consultation and a referral for treatment, when ordering and when carrying out consultations or referrals.

Consultations

A consultation is a request for opinion or advice, so that the requestor can manage the patient. A consultation is billed under one of the consultation codes listed in Physicians’ Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) (99241-99245 for outpatient of office consultations). If the NP is the consultant, the NP should document the request for a consultation, the reason for the consult, and the NP’s evaluation and recommendations.
When an NP requests a consultation from another provider, the N P should request “consultation” on the referral form, rather than “referring.”

Referrals:

A referral is made when the referring provider wants to turn the management of the patient over to the referred-to provider, at least for the current complaint.
When a NP refers a patient, the NP should state on the referral form that the NP is “referring the patient for evaluation and treatment.” The referred-to provider will bill an evaluation and management code, rather than a consultation code.

Writing Assignment: Consult:

Write up a consult request and include all key elements.
Ms. Perez has been referred to Ms. Wilson FNP-C,APRN, MSN  for consultation regarding eczema unresponsive to treatment in the past six months.
Document the evaluation and recommendations for how Ms. Wilson FNP-C,APRN,MSN should deal with the consultation request and bill a consultation code.

Writing Assignment: Referral:

Write up a referral request and include all key elements.
As an NP and Ms. Perez primary care provider, you decide to refer her to Dr. Owens a dermatologist for evaluation and treatment regarding eczema unresponsive to treatment in the past six months.
1. Document your referral to Dr. Owens
2. Document the evaluation and recommendations for how Dr. Owens should deal with the referral and bill a referral code.

Question 4263: The truth is that the reader is always right

As a nurse embarking on an advanced degree, you are developing the characteristics of a scholar-practitioner, which includes strong communication skills. Writing in a scholarly manner involves supporting your thoughts with evidence from the literature and appropriately using APA formatting.
One of the challenges of scholarly writing is paraphrasing the thoughts of others in your work.
Paraphrasing, and correctly citing the original author for his or her ideas, allows you to take the ideas of others, summarize them, and incorporate them into your own writing. When summarizing the ideas of others, it is important to avoid plagiarizing (copying the words and ideas of others as though they were
your own). In addition to expanding your knowledge of APA, this week’s Learning Resources help you to distinguish between paraphrasing and plagiarizing.
To prepare:
 Think about the sometimes subtle difference between plagiarizing and paraphrasing.

 Read the following paragraphs, which were written by Patricia O’Conner:
A good writer is one you can read without breaking a sweat. If you want a workout, you don’t lift a book—you lift weights. Yet we’re brainwashed to believe that the more brilliant the writer, the tougher the going.
The truth is that the reader is always right. Chances are, if something you’re reading doesn’t make sense, it’s not your fault—it’s the writer’s. And if something you write doesn’t get your point across, it’s probably not the reader’s fault—it’s yours. Too many readers are intimidated and humbled by what they can’t understand, and in some cases that’s precisely the effect the writer is after. But confusion is not complexity; it’s just confusion. A venerable tradition, dating back to the ancient Greek orators, teaches that if you don’t know what you’re talking about, just ratchet up the level of difficulty and no one will ever know.

Don’t confuse simplicity, though, with simplemindedness. A good writer can express an extremely complicated idea clearly and make the job look effortless. But such simplicity is a difficult thing to achieve because to be clear in your writing you have to be clear in your thinking. This is why the simplest
and clearest writing has the greatest power to delight, surprise, inform, and move the reader. You can’t have this kind of shared understanding if writer and reader are in an adversary relationship. (pp. 195–196) Source: O’Conner, P. (2003). Woe is I: The grammarphobe’s guide to better English in plain nglish. New York: Riverhead Books.

Directions

 Paraphrase this passage from O’Conner using no more than 75–100 words. Remember that paraphrasing means summarizing the essence of the original text. It does not mean creating a thesaurus-based revision of the author’s original words or copying the piece, or any part of it, word for word. For this activity, do not use any direct quotes.
 Turn your paraphrase into Grammarly and SafeAssign.
 Review your reports.
 Review the other tools, resources, and services available to you through the Walden Writing Center that support your growth as a scholarly writer.
 Consider which of these resources you find to be most useful.
 Review learning resources on APA formatting rules and information within the Walden Writing Center on APA.

Post a description of your experience of using Grammarly and SafeAssign and share at least one insight you gained about paraphrasing and avoiding plagiarism as a matter of academic integrity.  Recommend at least one other online resource that supports scholarly writing, and explain your rationale. Lastly, share two APA formatting rules with the class and a specific page number in the APA manual where this rule can be located
Support your Discussion assignment with specific resources used in its preparation using APA formatting.
You are asked to provide a reference for all resources, including those in the Learning Resources for this course.

Question 4265: Practicum Journal: Voluntary and Involuntary Commitment

Assignment 1: Practicum Journal: Voluntary and Involuntary Commitment
Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) may find themselves working in a wide variety of settings—each having their own unique challenges and inherent legal issues. For instance, what do you do in your state of practice when you are providing a therapy/treatment session and a client reports
active suicidal ideation? What do you do if you are covering inpatient psychiatric consults and are called to see a patient in the ICU who overdosed on prescription medication requiring intubation?

What do you do if you are a PMHNP on an inpatient unit and a client who admitted themselves on a voluntary
basis suddenly states that they have decided to sign themselves out of the hospital so that they can go home to kill themselves? These are just some of the legal questions that PMHNPs must know the answers to specific to their state of licensure/practice.
In this Assignment, you investigate your state’s laws concerning voluntary and involuntary commitment.
You also analyze a case to determine if the client is eligible for involuntary commitment.

Scenario for Week 7 Case:

You are a PMHNP working in a large intercity hospital. You receive a call from the answering service informing you that a “stat” consult has been ordered by one of the hospitalists in the ICU. Upon arriving in the ICU, you learn that your consult is a 14 year old male who overdosed on approximately 50
Benadryl (diphenhydramine hydrochloride) tablets in an apparent suicide attempt. At the scene, a suicide note was found indicating that he wanted to die because his girlfriend’s parents felt that their daughter was too young to be “dating.” The client stated in the suicide note that he could not “live without her” and decided to take his own life.

Although he has been medically stabilized and admitted to the ICU, he has been refusing to talk with the doctors or nurses. The hospital staff was finally able to get in touch with the clients parents (using contact information retrieved from the 14 year old’s cell phone). Unknown to the hospital staff, the parents are divorced, and both showed up at the hospital at
approximately the same time, each offering their own perspectives on what ought to be done.

The client’s father is demanding that the client be hospitalized because of the suicide, but his mother points out that he does not have “physical custody” of the child. The client’s mother demands that the client be discharged to home with her stating that her son’s actions were nothing more than a “stunt” and “an attempt at manipulating the situation that he didn’t like.” The client’s mother then becomes “nasty” and informs you that she works as a member of the clerical staff for the state board of nursing, and if you fail to discharge her child “right now” she will make you “sorry.” How would you proceed?
To Prepare for this Practicum Assignment:

  • Review the Learning Resources concerning voluntary and involuntary
    commitment.
  • Read the Week 7 Scenario in your Learning Resources.
  • Research your state’s laws concerning voluntary and involuntary commitment.
    The Assignment (3 pages):
  • Based on the scenario, would you recommend that the client be voluntarily
    committed? Why or why not?
  •  Based on the laws in your state, would the client be eligible for involuntary
    commitment? Explain why or why not.
  •  Did understanding the state laws confirm or challenge your initial
    recommendation regarding involuntarily committing the client? Explain.
  •  If the client were not eligible for involuntary commitment, explain what actions
    you may be able to take to support the parents for or against voluntary commitment.
  •  If the client were not eligible for involuntary commitment, explain what initial
    actions you may be able to take to begin treating the client.

Question 4273: The Collaborative Learning Community:

The Collaborative Learning Community: EBP Identification of Clinical Question assignment is due.
Prepare for your upcoming Topic 5 assignment, Collaborative Learning Community: EBP Literature

Search/Appraisal of Evidence. Remember to record all communication in the CLC Forum.
Use the evidence hierarchy pyramid provided in Figure 2.1 in the Nursing Research: Generating and Assessing Evidence for Nursing Practice textbook as a guide for the levels of evidence in your reference list.
Locate case studies, relevant clinical articles written by experts, research articles, evidence-based guidelines, protocols, and theories that may guide the identification of appropriate solutions. This can include the articles reviewed in Topic 3. Note: Not all theories will have research that allows them to have a level assigned to them. This does not mean they are not good theories. A true proposal would require a comprehensive review of the literature and inclusion of all relevant works.
Appraise the evidence using the guidelines provided in the Nursing Research: Generating and Assessing Evidence for Nursing Practice textbook. Use these guidelines to discard references that are untrustworthy or irrelevant. Box 2.2 can help with this decision-making process. Chapter 5 provides
guidance on how to synthesize the article findings.

Use the assigned Topic Material, “CLC EBP Research Table,” to consolidate and present the findings.
Limit the articles to no more than 10 (two per student in the CLC group would be reasonable). Choose one group member to submit the completed assignment by the end of Topic 5.

Question 4274: Developmental Red Flags

Wellness visits are an important part of pediatric primary care. During these visits, patient growth and development are assessed. As an advanced practice nurse who performs these assessments, you must be able to distinguish between normal and abnormal growth and development to recognize red flags.
While some patients may not meet milestones due to differences in rates of development, abnormal development might also be a red flag of an underlying problem. In this Discussion, you examine the following case studies and consider potential developmental red flags:

Case Study 1

A mother brings in her 16-month-old, Brittany, for treatment of an acute illness. During the history, the mother reports that her mother-in-law is concerned about the toddler’s development. Further questioning reveals the following:
 Brittany was a term infant born vaginally with no intrapartum complications. Birth weight was 8 pounds 1 ounce and current weight is 26 pounds 9 ounces.
 She was breastfed until 12 months of age and now drinks 24 ounces of whole milk and eats table foods daily.
 Physical milestones are as follows: Rolled front to back at 6 months, developed pincer grasp at 11 months, crawled at 8 months, and began cruising at 10 months. She does not walk independently.
 Social development includes mimicking adult behavior, four-word vocabulary (mama, dada, baba, and no), follows one-step commands, and quiets easily when comforted.

Case Study 2:

You see a 30-month-old named Brian for a well-child visit. His mother reports the following
development:
 Physical: Walks independently, runs, able to climb stairs alternating feet, makes a tower of nine cubes, and is able to button his pants.
 Social: Follows one-step commands, uses one-word sentences, and has a vocabulary of approximately six words. He is resistant to nighttime and feeding routines, he has marked temper tantrums, and Mom states he does not calm when she tries to comfort him.

Case Study 3

Jose is a 36-month-old who presents for a preschool evaluation. His father reports the following development:
 Physical: Walks, runs, and jumps independently, walks up stairs alternating feet, pedals a three- wheeler, scribbles, copies circles and squares, and is able to balance on one foot for 2 to 3 seconds.
 Social: Recognizes three colors; speech is 75% understandable; uses three- to four-word sentences; talks about friends, favorite activities, and family; frequently engages in imitative play; has an imaginary friend; does stutter on occasion when excited or when intent on getting something said. Will typically repeat the first word in a sentence three to four times, but does not repeat syllables or consonants. This happens three to four times a week.
To prepare:
 Review this week’s media presentations, as well as “Developmental Management of Infants” and “Developmental Management of Toddlers and Preschoolers” in the Burns et al. text.
 Think about how physical, social, and cognitive development vary during infancy, toddlerhood, and the preschool years. Reflect on normal versus abnormal growth and development and consider the decision-making process of identifying and managing red flags of abnormal development.
 Select one of the three case studies provided. Reflect on the patient information included in the case study and consider any developmental red flags.
 Reflect on standardized screening tools, clinical guidelines, and management strategies that would be used to assess and manage the patient in your selected case study.
By Day 3
Post an explanation of any developmental red flags that presented in the case study you selected based on the stages of normal physical, social, and cognitive development for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Explain how you differentiated between normal and abnormal growth and development
for this patient and identify which standardized screening tools, clinical guidelines, and management strategies you might use to assess and manage this patient and why.

Question 4275: nursing education

As faculty members, you have been asked to design a 4-hour Leadership Strategies course that would accommodate the learning styles for a selected 10 students. The students have all completed a learning style inventory in which three of the students are determined visual learners, four are kinesthetic
learners, and the rest are auditory learners. Note: The intended audience for the course can be either newly graduated nurses or experienced staff nurses as you choose.

Compose a 1,000-1,250-word paper which describes your plan to accommodate the learning styles of each student. This plan starts with defining course objectives; use the “A-B-C-D Method of Writing Objectives” resource as a guide. The objectives should incorporate Bloom’s taxonomy, be written at the appropriate level for the audience, and include at least two learning domains (cognitive, psychomotor, and affective). Make sure to include the following:

1. An outline of the course content and agenda that will be covered.

2. Descriptions of the learning activities and the rationale for the learning activities selected.

3. Strategies to assess learning, based on the learner objectives

4. Use at least three scholarly, peer-reviewed sources less than 5 years old in addition to the course materials.

Instructions

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is required.
Refer to “Learning Styles Rubric,” prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.  You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success Center. Please use the -A-B-C-D Approach to Objective provided.    SEE A-B-C-D APPROACH BELOW.

A-B-C-D Approach to Objective Writing
Writing objectives is much like writing outcomes in the nursing process. Objectives must be measurable, contain action verbs, be specific, include timelines, and indicate the degree to which you expect the learner to achieve.  A helpful formula to write objectives is the A-B-C-D approach:  Audience: Who is the audience for the class? Is it a student nurse? A staff nurse? A participant in a class?  Behavior: What do I want the audience to accomplish by the end of the class? An example of a behavior is being able to identify the signs and symptoms of infection. Condition: How will students demonstrate mastery and be assessed in their learning? An example could be that students will demonstrate their knowledge of a lab or clinical area by taking a written test.  Degree: How well will students perform their new knowledge?

Should students be able to identify all signs and symptoms of infection, or would it be satisfactory if they identified only two symptoms?  A sample objective that illustrates these points is: “After reading this lecture (condition), the graduate student in the nurse educator track (audience) will be able to write an
objective (behavior) using the A-B-C-D approach (degree).”  The above objective dictates that the student will be able to write an objective, as opposed to discussing or identifying it. Since the objective says “write,” the student must write an objective to meet this objective. If the objective instead said:
“List the components of a complete learner objective,” the appropriate evaluation would require that the student list the A-B-C-D; whereas the objective “describe the components” would have students describe the meaning of each A-B-C-D step. Well-written objectives will dictate the evaluation process.

Question 4276: Case Study on Moral Status

Details:
Based on “Case Study: Fetal Abnormality” and other required topic study materials, write a 750-1,000-word reflection that answers the following questions:
1. What      is the Christian view of the nature of human persons, and which      theory of moral status is it compatible with? How is this related to the      intrinsic human value and dignity?

2. Which      theory or theories are being used by Jessica, Marco, Maria, and Dr. Wilson to determine the moral status of the fetus? What from the case study specifically leads you to believe that they hold the theory you selected?
3. How does the theory determine or influence each of their recommendations for action?
4. What theory do you agree with? Why? How would that theory determine or influence the recommendation for action?
Remember to support your responses with the topic study materials.
While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

If you are having trouble finding an article, read through the table of contents at the beginning of the book to familiarize yourself with the names of concepts that will be presented later in the course.

Read your article carefully, making notes about relevant content. Write a three-four page summary of the key points in your article. If you are unfamiliar with a term or concept that is central to the article, do some research in your textbook. Relate these key points to the concepts in your text by citing page numbers.

The content should determine the length of any business paper you write.

External Environment: What is the nature of the overall domestic and global market for our product? How big is the market? Who buys our product? Who are our competitors? What are their marketing strategies? What are the key trends in the economic environment?

The technological environment? The regulatory environment? The social and cultural environment? S.W.O.T. Analysis: Based on this analysis of the internal and external environments, what are the key: Strengths Weaknesses

Opportunities Threats Part B – due 11/16/16 Product/Company you are writing your marketing plan on: Set Marketing Objectives What does marketing need to accomplish to support the objectives of my plan? (Here is where you write the goals of your marketing strategy.

What do you want to accomplish by following your marketing plan?) Part C – due 11/16/16 C. Develop Marketing Strategies.

Select Target Markets and Positioning How do consumers and organizations go about buying and using your products? Which consumer segments should you select to target?

If your target market is consumers: What is the demographic, psychographic, and behavioral characteristics of your target market? What are their media habits? If your target market is businesses (B2B): What are the relevant organizational demographics? Part D – due 11/30/16

Implement and Control the Marketing Plan

1. Action Plans for all marketing mix (product, price, promotion, distribution) elements: How do you make your marketing plan happen? (Be specific.)

2. Responsibility Who (which employee/manager) is responsible for accomplishing each aspect of implementing the marketing plan? (Be specific.)

3. Time Line What is the timing for the elements of your marketing plan? (Layout a timeline to accomplish each task here. Be specific.)

4. Budget What is the budget for your marketing objectives? (What are the media costs, printing costs, production costs, etc. Be specific.)

5. Measurement and Control How are you going to measure the actual performance you are your plan? (Are you going to use sales numbers, number views, number of clicks on a website? Be specific.) Hint:

This part of your plan is the actual “road map” or directions on how to accomplish your objectives. You need to lay out how long everything is going to take, how much you estimate it is going to cost, who will be responsible for carrying out each task, and how you will know if your plan worked or not.

Here you need to do research so you can make estimations. Use industry standards and population numbers to estimate your numbers. (For example if you are opening a pizza restaurant in a neighborhood and you want to estimate weekly sales, you’ll need to figure out what population in that neighborhood is your target market and out of those numbers how many people are likely to eat pizza.

Then do the math.) Final due 12/14/16 – Follow the “build a Marketing Plan” pull-out from your textbook (between pages 72 and 73) as the outline for this Written Marketing Plan. DO NOT USE YOUR OWN OUTLINE or one that you found on the Internet.

The final paper should be 15 to 20 pages long including the Appendix, and should be written in standard business format: single spaced (MS Word 1.15 default ok), blocked paragraphs (paragraphs not indented and separated by a line space), and 11-12 point font size.

You can use bulleted lists instead of paragraphs where appropriate (see sample marketing plan in textbook Appendix pp. 476-487 for style expectations). Your written paper should have a cover page, a works cited page at the end of the written paper before the Appendix, and have page numbers printed on the lower right side of each page (except for the cover page).

Keep in mind that your paper will be analyzed by Turnitin.com plagiarism software, so if you have any material in the paper that is not your own, you must cite the source of information. (You can use the reference tab in Microsoft Word to help you format your citations and your “Works Cited” page.

For citations, use APA format.) I would also recommend that you bring the final draft of this paper to the NSC Student Writing Center and have the writing center staff proofread your paper before you turn it, as you will be marked down for misspellings, improper grammar, poor sentence structure, and poor organization.

This should be written as a “professional” marketing plan, so make sure the final product would be representative of something that you would turn into your boss or your client. Remember, this is not a research paper, this is a strategy paper where research was used to support your strategy. (You may research back-up information, but use your own strategy.) You will submit the entire marketing plan on the last day of the term.

All papers must be turned in by December 17th at midnight. Under no circumstances will this paper be accepted late. If you do not turn it in by the deadline, you will receive zero credit.

Below I have attached three examples of outstanding marketing plans that were submitted by students for this class in the past to give you an idea of what is expected. I’ve attached what I turned in for Part A (you can either use that info or stray from it) and an example of what they are looking for.

Question 1397 Creating an Effective Marketing Mix

Company: PRADA One of the key areas examined in a marketing audit is how well the organisation makes use of its marketing mix for a product or brand. Typically, a marketing mix is composed of a group of attributes known in the field of marketing and brand management as the four P’s. Traditionally, these Ps are: product, place, price and promotion.

These P’s were chosen to reflect the most critical aspects of any marketing strategy, specifically the following: Is this the right product for the targeted consumers? (product) Is it being sold or marketed through the right channels?

(place) Is it priced effectively so as to maximise profits? (price) Is its message being communicated effectively? (promotion) In recent years, to better capture certain organisational offerings, other P’s have gained recognition, including: process, people and physical evidence (Jobber and Ellis-Chadwick, 2013).

Brand effectiveness may also be analysed in terms of Ps. Dillon et al. (2001) proposed that brands can be analysed based on two components: brand-specific associations and general brand impressions.

Brand-specific associations refer to ‘features, attributes, or benefits that consumers link to a brand and that differentiate it from the competition’ (Dillon et al., 2001: 417).

This concept has been further refined by Lee et al. (2008), who have proposed a useful model for brand analysis that looks at brand-specific associations, general brand impression and brand commitment.

If you have already completed your SWOT analysis, information gleaned from that activity may be helpful as you develop a more effective marketing mix for your proposed product.

To prepare for this Assignment: Review the Readings. Focus on specific examples of effective marketing mixes that improved the marketability of a product or brand. Also focus on digital applications related to the marketing mix. Consider the need for a marketing mix in a marketing strategy.

What would be the danger in too little or too much of a focus on one of the P’s? Using online or other sources, explore how the organisation that produces the brand you chose makes use of its current marketing mix. Pay special attention to how much or how little it focuses on each ‘P’.

To complete this Individual Assignment: Evaluate the effectiveness of the current marketing mix for the brand you selected for your Project. Does the marketing mix meet goals of forming consumer brand relationships? Include in your evaluation whether the marketing mix includes the right mix of P’s.

In a 1,000-word paper, create a marketing mix you believe would be more effective for this new product in order to build brand equity in an international market and explain why you chose this mix.

Include a variety of marketing methods, including digital marketing. How is the marketing mix for this new product different from the marketing mix that was most likely used for the organisation’s other products? Why?

Be sure to include specific examples and support your postings with evidence from the Readings, other current literature. Referencing in HARVARD style Some readings will be provided but you also need to find and add others. MBA level assignment.

Question 1398 Brand Communications

Brands sometimes create some interesting twists in their marketing. See if you can identify the following automobile brands. Which brand currently uses the “arm punch” device? Which brand continues to use the words “zoom zoom”? Which brand used the odd term “Farfegnugen”?

Which brand spends a million dollars a day on research to keep drivers safe? Which upscale brand is often represented by a logo that does not incorporate its name?

Most of you will have little trouble identifying these brands, having seen advertising and promotional signage for them, or perhaps just “knowing” that fact about the car brand.

Select one of the brands above and share your recollections about how you learned what you “know” about the brand. Was all of your brand knowledge generated by advertising? What other factors contributed to what you know? Can you determine what information came from what source?

Discuss with your classmates some of the ways you have interacted with brands, both those you use and those you do not use but with which you are familiar.

Please provide a blog in APA style, 2 pages, citation and references needed. It is not a paper. It is a blog. Thus, I need more critical thinking and own opinions. Make a trip to a chain grocery, drug, or general merchandise store.

After selecting a product category (e.g., cereal, pain relievers, storage containers), find that section in the store and review the products offered. How are they alike and different? What efforts can you identify that appear to be manufacturergenerated? How about retailer-generated?

For those that are retailer-generated, what role do you think the manufacturer played in the retailer’s actions? What attracts you to certain products and why? Choose one brand you like, one you do not like, and one you have no strong feelings for one way or the other.

Identify your perceptions of each brand. Next try to determine where those perceptions came from. Finally, how do they influence your thinking about purchasing (from) the brand?

Assuming you are the target market (provide a one-sentence overview of yourself as such) explain what you think about the company’s choices in its marketing efforts on behalf of the brand. Provide a commentary on your store visit.

There needs to be enough detail such that the author, who has not taken this course or read our textbook, can understand the topic well. Then use the remaining paragraphs to explain how the article relates to the issue. If the author agrees, explain the specific points.

If the author disagrees, describe the points of contention and perhaps the causes. If the author adds a dimension, explain that. For example, “Our text says that to achieve A we must do B and avoid C.

Your article generally agrees but adds that in situation D, could be the introductory sentence summarizing both halves. There is no value in summarizing the article since the author is intimately familiar with it, but the author is not at all familiar with this course or its materials.

To recap, I am not looking for a summary of the article but an analysis. how it disagrees, or how it adds to it. Your supporting arguments consist of specific items from your own experience.

Be sure to cite the article as well as every word, fact and idea in the memo which is not your own, and to explain any quotations rather than merely let them speak for themselves.

Despite sharp declines in carbonated soft drinks, Coca-Cola remains the premier beverage brand. Go online to Coca-Cola’s website where you will find a “history” tab. Identify what you believe to be key points in the timeline for the growth of the brand, and why you think those were important.

Use Stein and Davenport as models. Both essays do the same thing I am asking you to do. Notice how they examine both the artist and the photograph/painting. This will require a careful reading of the photograph/painting, research, and critical thinking.

As part of the essay, you should research the artist or photograph/painting you are evaluating. What do others say about this artist or his or her photograph/painting? Critically read the photograph/painting, and like Davenport, incorporate your critical reading into your essay.

What is in the foreground and background? What can you infer about the image based on that which surrounds it? Does the photograph/painting symbolize anything? Be sure to have the photograph/painting in front of you as you write.

Finally, argue why this photograph/painting should be viewed as iconic by exploring what it represents, communicates, and/or symbolizes. Here is where you will get to use your critical thinking and analytical skills.

Question 1354 bad news letter

Consider the following scenario: You are the owner or manager of a small business who needs to inform a group of loyal customers of some bad news. Please write a one-page letter to this group of customers explaining the situation.

You will also want to thank them for their business. The continued livelihood of your company and your employees depends on a strong relationship with this group. You may create any details necessary for this communication.

Question 1357 Memo on White Paper

Before You start; I need a topic for a white paper! One I had in mind was: The Benefits of using Network Vulnerability Scanners

Please follow the instructions attached below Also if hired, you be hired to complete this assignment and later on the final white paper assignment

Question 1358 Logical Fallacies

Include the name of the fallacy as a heading within your paper.

1. Explain the fallacy, using a signal phrase that includes the source that informed your understanding.

2. Use an example to illustrate the fallacy. Show an example of a current-day advertisement, news clip, public service announcement, political speech or campaign, letter to the editor, public speech, blog or social media post that uses this fallacy.

3. Explain how the example illustrates the logical fallacy which you are defining.

4. Create a Works Cited entry for the source that informed your understanding of the logical fallacy.

5. Create a Works Cited entry for the example of the fallacy. FOR AN A: Work alone, in a pair or with a small group, and create a video or live presentation to share with the class.

Select five logical fallacies to define and exemplify. You must find a way to demonstrate that your video does not simply “borrow” from videos already in existence. FOR A B: Work alone, in a pair or with a small group, and create a video or live presentation to share with the class. Select three logical fallacies to define and exemplify.

You must find a way to demonstrate that your video does not simply “borrow” from videos already in existence. FOR A C: Work alone, in a pair or with a small group, and create a video or slide presentation to share with the professor. Select three logical fallacies to define and exemplify.

You must find a way to demonstrate that your video does not simply “borrow” from videos already in existence. FOR A TEN-POINT BONUS: Do not use any example of a fallacy that any other group is using.

The best (but not the only) way to do this is to select fallacies that no one else has chosen. (Yes, you will need to communicate not just with your own group, but with other groups. AND if another individual or group uses the same example as you or your group, neither group will receive the ten point bonus. I know–so unfair!)

Question 1359 Alice Walker’s short story “Everyday Use”

` PROMPT: Alice Walker’s short story “Everyday Use” was written at a particular moment in history, when, for the first time, a young generation of black Americans were demonstrating pride in their African roots and attempting to connect to that part of their identity.

Alice Walker was herself an activist, but this story is not about the civil rights or black power movements. Rather, it’s about a mother learning to see her two daughters clearly for perhaps the first time.

Select one of the following questions and write a well-developed paragraph or two in response (minimum 150 words, not including quotes from the story). Please use at least one supporting detail from the text in your answer.

If there are topics below which have not been selected by the time you begin to write, please choose from among them.

1.What is the symbolic significance of the quilt in this story (you should begin with the quilt, but need not stop there) ?

2.Which sister does Walker seem to feel most sympathy for, and why?

3.How is the title of the story related to Mama’s epiphany at the end of the story? What is that epiphany?

4.Based on the events of the story, what would you say Walkers theory of art might be? [Think about how Dee plans to use the items she is removing from her mother’s home].

Main posts and responses should include references as appropriate. We will address the following topics: •Fiction •Analyzing Literature This course will cover three genres of literature: fiction, poetry and drama.

We are beginning with fiction, and will read several short stories. We begin with an Alice Walker short story, “Everyday Use,” a story about a mother and her two daughters, one who has remained home with her while the other has gone off to college and never come back–until now.

While we are generally used to such stories being about the successful college graduate coming home to show off how much she’s changed, Walker’s story is really about the mother she left behind.

It is through Mama’s eyes that we see both daughters and it is Mama who changes. As you read Walker’s story, apply the five steps for analysis that are in the Analyzing Literature reading this week–and also try to use the literary terms listed in that reading when you write your discussion board response (where applicable).

Question 1361 ERNEST HEMINGWAY “HILLS LIKE WHITE ELEPHANTS”

DISCUSION ERNEST HEMINGWAY “HILLS LIKE WHITE ELEPHANTS” . One response (250 words) second response (300 words) PROMPT: Hemingway is best known for his novels, especially The Old Man and the Sea, which won him both a Pulitzer Prize and was cited by the Nobel Committee when they awarded him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.

He was also a well-known adventurer, war veteran, and world traveler. His writing style was very influential among modernist writers—it is sparse and clean, but upon close reading, reveals great depths.

In his 1932 novel Death in the Afternoon, Hemingway had this to say about writers, and it tells us a great deal about his approach to his own work: If a writer of prose knows enough about what he is writing about he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them.

The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one-eighth of it being above water. (192) This is called Hemingway’s “Iceberg Theory” and it certainly applies to “Hills Like White Elephants.” The story, at first, appears to be nothing more than a conversation between two people; upon closer reading, the conversation turns out to be an incredibly important one. Please answer the following questions about the story.

1.Identify and explain something Hemingway has included in this story that helps the reader figure out what is being discussed–without him ever having to say it. (You may need to figure out the topic of their conversation first).

There are clues everywhere, but Hemingway doesn’t like to share them too overtly. Let’s find them together. Make sure you not only identify these clues but explain what they mean. (Examples–the landscape, the beaded curtains, the luggage, the elephant Jig mentions, even the dialogue).

2.Using the iceberg theory from the introduction, choose something else besides the operation you think probably has more importance in the story than readers might believe at first, and decide whether Hemingway has written “truly” enough so that you “have a feeling of [that thing] as strongly as though the writer had stated [it].”

Has he offered enough clues to figure it out? Explain. It’s all right to select something you believe to be minor (it may not be minor at all). If you use the same answer as another student, be sure you are adding something new to the conversation.

Question 1362 English Language

PROMPT: Peter Davidson, who edited Frost’s collection North of Boston notes: Frost “lost two children to death in early childhood, another to insanity, another to death after childbirth, and still another (after the death of [his] wife, Elinor) to suicide.”

Given the personal tragedies Frost experienced, it seems inevitable that a strain of grief, and perhaps bitterness, would run through his poetry. Select BOTH questions below and write a well-developed paragraph or two in response.

Please use at least one supporting detail from the text in your answer. Who is most sympathetic here, the husband or Amy? Defend your position using evidence from the poem.

What do you think the speaker means when he says: “‘Three foggy mornings and one rainy day/Will rot the best birch fence a man can build.’”(96-7)? He’s referring to something more than literal fog and rain and fence—what might it be? Based on your own experience(s), is this a fair statement? Explain. Minimum of 300 words for each paragraph

Question 1363 Metacognition Assignment

Metacognition Assignment This assignment asks you to think about your thinking process for the paper you wrote on “What You Pawn I Will Redeem” Character Analysis and how you can improve your analytical thinking and writing. Be honest with yourself.

There are several parts to the assignment, so please read and assess carefully. Respond to the following prompts. Be sure to use full sentences and correct grammar and punctuation.

Discuss the way Joy Harjo uses language in “The Woman Hanging from the Thirteenth Floor Window.” Will upload the files for this one in a few

Question 1364 Ezra Pound’s “In a Station of the Metro”

PROMPT: In this two line poem, Pound was attempting to capture a momentary image of breathtaking beauty in the way he imagined a painter would. We know that he scaled this poem back to two lines from its original thirty so that only the most essential elements remained.

The poets who attempted this kind of writing were called “imagists.” Here’s a definition from the University of Pennsylvania: “The Imagists wrote succinct verse of dry clarity and hard outline in which an exact visual image made a total poetic statement.”

(Check the “Readings/Preparation” area this week for help with this poem). Think about the following: What is the comparison Pound makes in this poem? What is he trying to accomplish with that comparison?

Now, answer this– In your opinion, has Pound succeeded in creating an “exact visual image” which makes “a total poetic statement?” Support your answer with references to the poem. https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/station-metro

Question 1365 Billy Collins’ “On Turning Ten”:

From the Poetry Foundation webpage on Billy Collins: “Dubbed ‘the most popular poet in America’ by Bruce Weber in the New York Times, Billy Collins is famous for conversational, witty poems that welcome readers with humor but often slip into quirky, tender or profound observation on the everyday, reading and writing, and poetry itself.

Collins has offered a slightly different take on his appeal, admitting that his poetry is ‘suburban, it’s domestic, it’s middle class, and it’s sort of unashamedly that.’”

Respond to the following question: When you first read this poem, did you think it was funny? Why or why not? In reading this poem, did you agree more with Bruce Weber’s assessment of Collins’ poetry or Collins’ own assessment? Both? Neither? In a well-developed paragraph and using at least one example from the poem, explain why.

Question 1366 The Charge of the Light Brigade

PROMPT: Alfred Tennyson’s poem, “Charge of the Light Brigade,& quote is a poem about what has been called & quote either the most heroic or disastrous episodes in British military history.”

It focuses on an event in the Crimean War (1853-1856), but might be applied to wartime even today. Select the TWO following prompts and explain your position with support from the poem itself.

1. Defend this position: This poem glorifies war.

2. Defend this position: This poem does not glorify war. Background: https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/charge-of-the-light-brigade

Question 1367 Shakespeare Much A Do About Nothing

PROMPT: Much Ado About Nothing Acts 1-3 Choose TWO questions from each act and write a paragraph in response (three paragraphs total). Before you select the question, make sure there are no questions left unanswered—you should respond to unanswered questions first.

This is a good reason to post early—you will have more choices available. Act One What is the backdrop for the arrival of Don Pedro and his men? Why is this significant to the plot of the play?

What is the substance of Don Pedro’s private conversation with the lovesick Claudio? Why is Don Pedro in such a hurry, do you think? Is it a good idea for him to woo in Claudio’s place? Why or why not? How do we know that Beatrice and Benedick are in a “skirmish of wit”?

Who seems to be winning? What is said that leads the audience to believe these two have a past, and why is that important, particularly when we reach Act 3 and Don Pedro’s “trick”? Act Two In what ways does this Act reveal Hero to be different from Beatrice, and why might that be true?

Why does her uncle tolerate Beatrice’s insistence on remaining a “maid” but tell his daughter to accept Prince Don John’s offer of marriage (should he make such an offer)? Why does Beatrice tease Benedick at the party, and why is he so upset? What is she insinuating about him? Why does he care?

Finally, why does Beatrice turn down Don Pedro’s offer of marriage? What happens in this Act between Balthasar and Margaret and Ursula and Antonio? How are these events important to the rest of the play? Act Three In Act 3, we at last hear something from Hero. What does she say?

How is she different when she is among other women than when she is in the company of her father and other men? How does scene one enhance our understanding of her character?

Don’t forget to discuss scene 4. In this Act, Beatrice and Benedick are “tricked” into falling in love. How does it happen, and why is it so easy? (Think about this one carefully). Constable Dogberry and the Watch are introduced in this Act. These are civilians who are paid to patrol and stand guard—remember that Leonato, Hero’s father, is Messina’s governor.

Why do you think Shakespeare introduces them here and why is Dogberry written to be so pompous and uneducated? (Appearances versus reality, perhaps?)

Question 1368 Passage analysis

It is a really specific topic. I have a posted a photo in the attached file which is two pages. All you have to relate is that two pages with the whole Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.

Question 1370 english assignment

This assignment has two parts. THE FIRST PART I WILL NEED IN 1 HOUR AND 30 MINUTES First part: In a minimum of 4-5 paragraphs in length. You will be writing a literary analysis on a specific poem.

Look for literary elements within the poem and discuss how the author uses those elements (a good basic way to approach analysis when you are learning is to see what literary elements the author uses and how those elements can support the work’s theme; for example, how does the use of symbolism and imagery support the poem’s theme?).

So remember to have a strong introduction, with a clear thesis, well-developed body paragraphs that relate to the thesis, and a conclusion. Second part: Write a minimum of 200 word on Li- Young Lee poet and explain what it is about that poet’s work that is relevant to readers today. Why did it stand out to you?

Question 1376  Narrative Paragraph

After reading Chapter 5, choose one of the following topics and write a narrative paragraph using the TEST template. Note in this chapter the importance of transition words. See the bottom of page 86 for examples.

An embarrassing situation A dangerous experience An instance of injustice A time you made a mistake A time you made an important decision An unfortunate date A vacation that didn’t go well A day you would like to forget An encounter that changed your life Keep in mind following important tips: 1) Begin your paragraph with a topic sentence.

Your topic sentence (called a “thesis sentence” at the beginning of an essay) needs to identify your subject AND what you are going to say about that subject. For example, the topic on page 86 has the topic sentence, “Creating viral video isn’t easy.”

So, the subject here is “creating a viral video.” That doesn’t tell the reader much. You also need what can be called a “point of significance.” In this case, it is “isn’t easy.” Thus your reader knows immediately what your point of view is going to be about your subject and thus what to expect in this paragraph.

2) The “meat” of your paragraph, that is, the evidence must prove or illustrate your point with facts, details, descriptions, reasons, etc. This is what makes your paragraph or essay interesting and convincing.

Don’t expect your reader to take your word for anything; show your reader that what you are saying is true or accurate. Recreate the experience for them. Pertinent details make the paragraph both believable and interesting.

Question 1377 Tool Creation Directions and Usability Test Memo

There are two final tasks for Level 2 that you must complete. The first task asks you to come up with a tool, made of everyday household items. The purpose of this tool is to offer a more ergonomic experience for students who often stress and strain their bodies when writing papers: looking down at sources, looking back to the computer screen to type, etc.

Then, your job is to write directions on how to construct and use the tool. The second task asks you to conduct usability tests to determine the effectiveness of the tool and your directions and then write a memo that reveals the results of the test. Effective instructions must always be highly reader-centered: meaning they must respond to the needs of readers and users.

Together, these tasks encourage the growth of problem-solving skills, grant you experience conducting usability tests, recording and presenting data, and asks you to practice writing as a producer who thinks like a consumer.

The Particulars While I say above that there are two final tasks to Level 2, we might argue that there are actually four. As I mentioned above, you will need to do the following: With the ergonomic problem in mind, develop and design a tool that helps students overcome that problem.

Your tool doesn’t have to solve the problem completely, but it should still be useful. Then, you have to build the tool using every day household items—or at least items that can be easily obtained via the Internet.

It should be simple enough that almost anyone could make the tool and use it. The deliverable for this task is an instruction set. The instructions must do two things: A) direct the reader how to construct the tool and B) instruct the reader on how to use the tool.

The design and language of this document should keep the reader in mind—who is going to be using this tool and reading your instructions? How can you best convey to these readers how to make and use your tool via text and design? The next step is to have no fewer than 2, but ideally 3 (three is the magic number) people attempt to construct and use the tool you designed. This is the actual usability test.

You should conduct this test in a controlled environment to avoid outside interference and to prevent skewed test results. Observe any difficulties the subjects experience with the instructions doing so will help you revise your instructions to make them even better.

Record the amount of time that subjects require to understand and correctly construct and use the tool. Also note any questions which you’re not allowed to answer! that the subjects ask or anything else that subjects do or say while constructing and using the tool.

You might encourage your subjects to “think out loud” while completing the usability test. Finally, write the Usability Test Memo. The memo must include the following parts—note them, as the usability test memo genre is different than the memo genre we’ve been writing in up until now.

The memo should be between 2–3 pages, no fewer than 1000 words. Introduction: Remind readers of the topic and target instruction audience Objectives: Identify the objectives of your user test Method: Thoroughly, accurately, and persuasively describe test procedure and instruments, and user selection process Results / Discussion: Specifically, and in great detail, report test results.

Include descriptions of tester difficulties and questions Conclusion: Describe test results and their consequences. What are you going to do moving forward? Things to Keep in Mind The key thing that you’re trying to accomplish with this task is to convey to others, in writing alone, how to build and use a tool. But, the formatting of the instructions and to some extent the usability test memo is up to you.

What makes the most sense in terms of design and formatting for this rhetorical situation? Minimum Requirements for Instructions Between the creation and how to use the tool, there should be no fewer than four (4) steps.

You must design the instructions with your audience and purpose in mind You must develop a tool that helps to address the issue of ergonomics when writing papers using ordinary, easy-to-obtain materials.

The instructions must be organized and easy-to-follow You must research the problem that your tool intends to assuage Minimum Usability Test Memo Have 2–3 people build and use the tool you created based on your composed instructions alone Ethically record the successes and failures of the instruction set during the usability tests.

Your usability test memo must contain and adequately treat all parts of the genre: Introduction, Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusion Your usability test memo should be 2–3 pages long, no fewer than 1000 words, and should adhere to the memo genre’s formatting conventions.

Write and design your memo with an audience and purpose in mind Minimum Requirements for Level-up Memo In many ways, the Level-up Memo is more important than the deliverables themselves. This is where the learning actuallyoccurs, so take this seriously.

To that end, you Level-up Memo must address all of the below prompts in order to beat this level. The memo should be between 1–2 pages long. Who is your audience for each deliverable? What have you done in terms of design and choice of language to appeal to these audiences?

What purposes, apart from the obvious ones, do your deliverables fulfill? (Hint: You might have to think about this some). What were the results of your usability test?

How did you revise your instructions as a result? In your own estimation, what are the most effective elements of your materials? Why do you think so? If given more time and resources, what would you have like to have done differently?

How do you think that these differences would have improved your materials? If you chose to pursue a Composite (C) score, what did you do, specifically, to modify your materials beyond the minimum requirements? How did your modifications make your materials even better?

Question 1378 Code of Conduct Memo

Write a 1-page memo in which you address the situation, emphasizing the violation of the company’s code of conduct.

In your document, you should:

1. Ensure the memo is clear and brief.

2. Choose language to match the purpose and tone for the situation and audience.

3. Format the memo accurately and according to the details in the textbook.

4. Create an effective opening that establishes goodwill without obscuring the message.

Question 1379 Creating an FAQ for a Website

Write a one to two (1-2) page FAQ sheet for the intended audience and purpose. On a separate page within the same document, write a paragraph that identifies the intended audience and purpose of the FAQ sheet you have created.

Your assignment cannot be graded without this analysis. In your document, you should:

Assignment: Write a Critical Review of an Article (1-2 pages) For this assignment, you will choose an article pertinent to your research topic and write a review of it. You will not be re-writing it; rather, you will “de-construct” the article for the reader, analyzing the claims that the author is making and how well he supports those claims.

You will also explain how this article fits into your research strategy to answer your research question. Does it provide some insights but still leave you wondering?

Question 1322 Robbie’s Brain Injury

Robbie, a 19-year-old white male and first-year college student, suffered a significant brain injury 6 months ago as a result of a car accident. Robbie had been partying at a friend’s house and left about 1:00 a. m. Driving home, he missed a curve in the road and rolled his car.

Robbie’s parents knew that their son drank “occasionally,” but they never thought he had a “problem.” They had purchased a car for him and warned him of the dangers of drinking and driving. Prior to the accident, Robbie had been a gregarious young man. In high school, he had been a good student, popular, and played on the football team. Robbie loved skiing, skin diving, and riding dirt bikes. Robbie’s rehabilitation has been arduous.

His parents are still in disbelief. Robbie’s father is a prominent corporate attorney, and Robbie had always expressed a desire to follow the same career path. Robbie’s mother divided her time between caring for her husband and son and her volunteer work on behalf of abused and neglected children in the community. Since his injury, Robbie’s mother has spent most of her time caring for him and participating in his rehabilitation. His father is spending longer hours at work and misses the time he spent hunting, fishing, and playing golf with his son.

Though supportive at first, his friends are calling less and less and rarely come around. Both parents were stunned to learn that Robbie and some of his friends got drunk nearly every weekend. This information surfaced during a family counseling session conducted by a social worker on the rehabilitation team who had recently attended a seminar on screening and brief intervention for alcohol and other drug problems.

Robbie’s parents had a hard time believing it was true, but after questioning Robbie’s friends, they learned that this was indeed the situation. The brain damage Robert sustained has affected his impulse control and decreased his short-term memory and ability to concentrate. Robbie’s emotional affect is labile.

At times he laughs out loud; the next moment he may be crying. He has limited insight into his own behavior and how he has changed, so it is difficult for him to understand why his friends and family react to him differently now. Very few things sustain Robbie’s attention; even watching TV is not pleasurable. The muscle weakness on his right side limits his ability to participate in many of the athletic activities he enjoyed previously.

Robbie is on an emotional roller coaster. At one level he knows that his plans for the future have to change. At another level, he cannot accept these limitations. He wants things to be the way they were. His condition makes it impossible for him to return to a successful college experience. He resents his parents’ constant supervision, and feels that they are “treating him like a baby.” He says no girl will want to date him with this kind of interference.

Most of his friends are back at college, so he has begun to hang out with a younger group and drink again. Robbie is frustrated with the difficulty he has in remembering, expressing himself, and concentrating. He is restless and agitated sometimes, both as a result of his frustration and the organic aspect of his injuries. Robbie’s parents can afford high-quality treatment, but Robbie does not always comply with the treatment regimen.

1. What are the relevant facts in Robbie’s case (e.g., “What is actually happening here”)?

2. Identify the problems and issues that are arising in Robbie’s case (e.g., “What has gone wrong in this situation?” and “What needs to be addressed in order to improve the situation?”)

3. Identify the positive and strengths aspects of the situation (e.g., “What has gone right so far?” and “What positive elements exist in this situation?”) This post is worth 50 points.

Question 1323 Excelling with Excel

successfully complete this assignment, submit the Microsoft Excel template that includes the required information and formatting. Steps: Review this Assignment 2 Sample to see a completed version of this assignment for reference.

Note: You may not copy any information from this sample into your own assignment. Select the “Read-Only” option when the password window appears as you open this sample. Download the Assignment 2 Directions and Template workbook here. Follow the directions that are listed in the template. Save your document with the following name: CIS105_Assignment2_FirstName_Last Name_Date.xlsx Submit your assignment through the submission button.

Use the template to record and calculate the costs of the school materials you purchased for this quarter. First, in the Title Page worksheet, enter the following information: Type your name in cell B1. Type in the course section you are in cell B2. (For example CIS105111) Type your professor’s name in cell B3.Type the title of the assignment in cell B4.

Type the title (“Excelling with Excel”) of the assignment in cell B4. Rename the worksheet to “Overview.” Change the font type for this information to Century Gothic. Change the font size for this information to 14 points. Search for the school supplies you purchased at Amazon, Office Depot, Staples, or some other store. Find ten supplies that you purchased. You can include textbooks, lab code fees, and paper supplies such as notepads, planners, pens, pencils, highlighters, etc. Go to Sheet 3.

This will be where you add your list of school supplies. Type a title in cell A1. (For example: “School Supply Costs” or “My School Purchases.”) Format cell A1, so the font type is Calibri Light (Headings), the font size is 20-point, and the font color is one of your choosing.

Enter the following labels in the cells specified: Cell A2: School Supplies Cell B2: Quantity CellC2: Price Cell D2: Total Cost Make the font size 16 points and bold these labels. Column A: School Supplies In cells A3 through A12, enter the names of the ten (10) school supplies that you purchased. (If you didn’t buy 10 supplies, list what you would have purchased or will purchase next term.) Auto fit the contents of column A so you can see the name of each supply item name.

Format cells A3 through A12 so the text is 16-point Calibri Light (Headings) and the font color is orange. Column B: Quantity In column B enter the Quantity for each of the supplies. For example, will you need four (4) notebooks? Set the width of column B to 11.5”.

Format cells B3 through B12 so the text is 16-point Calibri Light (Headings) and the font color is brown. Column C: Price Enter the price for each school supply item. For example, a single notebook costs $5.

Expand column C so you can see all of your costs. Format cells C3 through C12 so the font is Arial, the font size is 14-point, and the font color is dark blue. Column D: Total costs Use the multiplication function to determine the total cost for each item. Hint: In D3, the formula would be =(B3*C3).

Fill in cells D4 through D12 to calculate the total cost of the other supplies. Format cells D3 through D12 so the font is Arial Bold, the font size is 14-point, and the font color is Dark Blue. Now, rename Sheet 3 to “School Supplies.”

Create a pie chart: In the School Supplies worksheet, select the range “School Supplies” and “Total Costs.” Insert a pie chart that displays the school supply items and the total cost for each item. Select the pie chart view that shows the dollar amounts for each item.

Add a title to your chart so the title is above the chart (can be found in “Chart Formatting”). Add data labels to the pie chart that shows the total cost for each item. Position the chart so it does not overlap with the data in column A, column B, and column C. Review the assignment for accuracy.

Question 1324 How Herland Challenges Gender Ideology

Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s fictional utopia Herland is about a culture populated only by women. The novel, narrated by a male sociologist, describes the woman-only culture in vivid detail and contrasts it with the three “visiting” men and their own society.

Sociology was a new field during Gilman’s lifetime and one that she identified with because of her interest in social problems. Since she considered herself a sociologist, readers could assume that the male narrator’s viewpoint is her own. It is through Vandyck Jennings’ eyes that we see both the male perspective on gender roles in American society in the early 20th century and the imaginative utopian society of Herland.

Gilman was not promoting a society populated only by women, but she creates it to critique the role and place of women in western culture. INSTRUCTIONS: (Please answer all the questions provided below) After reading the first three chapters of Herland, write 2 to 3 pages in which you answer one or more of the following questions about gender and society that Gilman embedded within the Herland narrative: What does Gilman see as a lot of women in her own society?

How does it compare to the place of women in Herland? How does Gilman challenges widely-held views about women’s nature, which began as early as the Renaissance lady, reappeared as the Victorian ideal, and were still present in 1915 when Herland was published? Remember that in 1915, women in America still did not have the right to vote even while the “new woman” was emerging with modernism and innovations.

Be sure to provide page-referenced examples from the assigned chapters from Herland to illustrate your view. Please include cited works, introduction, and conclusions in your paper.

Question 1330 Observation Interpretation/Analysis

Observation Analysis Using terms and concepts from the textbook and other resources from the class, analyze what you have observed in your Observation Log.

The goal of this interpretation is for you to make connections between the observations and the concepts in the readings and lectures. Use the techniques you learned in CD 101 / CD 201 to write the analysis of your observations. This paper should be 100% in your own words, although you will need to use concepts/terms from the textbook to support your analysis.

You will be graded primarily on the thoughtfulness of the analysis and your ability to accurately identify what the children are doing/learning that relates to math, science, and technology concepts. See the Observation Analysis Rubric for more details.

From your observations you will then make a decision about what area of inquiry you will explore the rest of the semester. Write about how you decided on the topic and how it is connected to your observations.

Question 1333 Personal response

McAfee Brown says,”it must be the prayer of our generation that with [Elie Wiesel’s] help we can recapture enough of that reality so it will never be repeated.” Do you believe that the atrocities of the Holocaust will be repeated somedays? Do you believe this memoir can have that powerful of an impact?

Question 1334 Business project

Using the information provided below, answer the series of questions presented in Part I, II, and III, below. When preparing your written submission, include both your calculations (an Excel file) and your written analysis of the financial information (a Word file).

Use the attached Excel file “Claire’s Income Statement”, which you’ll need to complete this assignment. CLAIRE’S CUTTERY Claire has always loved working with hair and beauty products and has decided that she will quit her day job and use the money her grandfather left her to start a salon. All of her friends think it’s a great idea, but her brother cautions her about “leaping before she looks.” She decides that, before she begins, she will project her sales for the first year to prove to her family that she has a winning idea.

She sits down with paper and pencil and completes the expense part of the Income Statement shown in the file “Claire’s Income Statement.” But she needs help projecting her sales, so using the following assumptions and information, complete the “Income” section of the Income Statement for her.

PART 1: YEAR 1 PROJECTIONS Her Business Claire will have 3 stylists available. For planning purposes, she assumes the following: Each stylist can accommodate 6 customers per day. The stylists each work 20 days per month. Claire also acts as a stylist, but she can only accommodate 4 customers per day since she also serves as receptionist.

However, since it is her business, she works 6 days per week (24 days per month). She has estimated, on average, that each customer will generate $12.00 in revenue. She estimates that based on her research, it will cost her about $2.50 in supplies per customer/per cut.

She will operate January through December and close the month of February for a vacation at her favourite ski resort. Market Share There are 8 other salons in the area that will compete for business. Claire has talked to the local Chamber, and they estimate that about 15,000 people now live in her town.

She assumes that she can capture about 24% of the market. Sales Projections for Year 1 She assumes that the sales volume will be distributed as follows: January: 5% of annual sales February: CLOSED March: 10% of annual sales April: 10% of annual sales May: 10% of annual sales June: 20% of annual sales July: 5% of annual sales August: 5% of annual sales September: 10% of annual sales October: 10% of annual sales November: 5% of annual sales December: 10% of annual sales

Part I: Questions 1. What is the maximum number of customers Claire can take in any one month based on her assumptions, and assuming a 30-day month? Is this enough to meet her market and sales projections, or does she have to reduce the sales projections because she runs out of capacity? 2. Can Claire accommodate 20% of her annual sales in one month (June), given that she has only 3 stylists available?

How should she address this? Be creative! Will she show a profit or a loss for the business if she achieves her sales figures. Note: Be sure to update the income statement under the tab “Part I Projections” to reflect what Claire can realistically earn.

PART II: REVISED YEAR 1 PROJECTIONS Good news for Claire! Four local competitors don’t reopen in December, and Claire gets 34% (rather than the projected 24%) of the market. She believes that she will be able to reach her goals if she makes the following changes: Each stylist will accommodate 1 additional customer per day if she extends her salon hours. Claire now serves 5 customers per day, instead of

4. With this increased market share, she has adjusted her operating expenses to include the following changes: The landlord levies a new common area maintenance fee of that will increase her rent by $75.00 per month. She hires a receptionist for $400 per month to free up her time. Her utilities costs increase because of the extended hours. She needs you to adjust her sales projections and produce a new income statement for the year. (Use the “REVISED Year 1” worksheet that has been provided in the file attached.) Part II: Questions 1. Will Claire be able to meet the revised sales projections? If not, what do you think she should do? 2.

Under her current structure, will Claire be able to meet the demand for her services? If not, how can she address this? Be creative! Will she show a profit or a loss for the business if she achieves her sales figures as projected? Note: Be sure to update the income statement under the tab “Revised Year 1” to reflect what Claire can realistically earn (under the given capacity assumptions).

PART III: My recommendation As a consultant, you were hire by Claire to help her with sales forecasts and make recommendations to improve her business results. Part III: Questions 1. After reviewing Claire’s projections, do you see any issue or missing opportunities that Claire should address? 2. Can you give Claire some ideas on what she can do to improve her business results? Be creative! Please feel free to make additional assumptions, if required, in your What-If Analysis. Note: Be sure to update the income statement under the tab “What-If Analysis” to back up your recommendations.

Question 1335 Controversial Issues

You are to use intext citations from the book. Each paragraph must be a minimum of 200 words.

Question 1336 Write a Critical Review of an Article

Assignment: Write a Critical Review of an Article (1-2 pages) For this assignment, you will choose an article pertinent to your research topic and write a review of it. You will not be re-writing it; rather, you will “de-construct” the article for the reader, analyzing the claims that the author is making and how well he supports those claims. You will also explain how this article fits into your research strategy to answer your research question. Does it provide some insights but still leave you wondering?

Question 1345 Literary analysis of the novel

This is the book I chose (To Kill a Mockingbird ) It is now time to write the literary analysis of the novel that you have read. Hopefully you have kept notes while reading to make it easier to complete this assignment. Please note that this is not a book review.

Your own opinion of the story is not relevant to the assignment itself and you should not retell the whole story – only describe the parts that are relevant to your analysis.

Do not forget to add information about the publisher, year of publication and number of pages. If you have read an online book, add a link/URL. Instructions The analysis should consist of three parts: Main Character, Main Theme and Language.

In each part you need to use quotes from the novel to base your analysis on. Important: Quotes do not count towards the specified number of words in each part. Part one: Main character (ca 300 words + quotes) For the first part of the text, you should analyze the main character. Some novels have more than one main character; in that case you should pick one.

Keep in mind that there is a difference between an analysis and a description. You should not simply describe the character, but discuss why you think the character acts the way they do. You should use two quotes which you think show important aspects of the character.

This can be about the character’s progression throughout the novel, certain traits (karaktärsdrag) that the character has, etc. Some questions you can ask yourself when reading: – What is the main character like? How does the main character’s personality impact the story? – What is the main character’s motivation? – Does the main character change during the novel? If so, how and why? – What role does the main character have in the story?

Part 2: Main Theme (ca 300 words + quotes) The theme of a novel can be seen as the message the author wants to convey. Quite often the theme is not explicitly stated, so you have to read between the lines to figure out what the author wants to say. Keep in mind that the theme is not the same as the plot of the novel – for example, Harry Potter is about a teenage wizard, but that does not mean that “wizards” is a theme of the novel; one of the larger themes in Harry Potter would be “courage”, because the novel discusses different kinds of courage, why it is important etc.

You should base your analysis on two quotes which support your interpretation of the novel. A novel usually has more than one theme, so for this analysis you should focus on what you consider to be the main theme.

Some questions you can ask yourself when reading: – What message do you think the author wanted to convey to the reader? – Does the novel tell us something about the world or life in general? Is there a general lesson to be learned from the novel?

Part three: Language (ca 200 words + quotes) Finally, you should discuss the language of the novel. Just like the first part, there is a difference between description and analysis; for example, if you think that the novel has simple language, you should then think about why the novel is written like that. Use one quote to exemplify something you think is important or interesting about the language of the novel.

This can be anything from the way dialogue is written to how descriptions are used, what kind of vocabulary is in the novel, or even the formatting of the novel (see the example text for a good example of this). Some questions to ask yourself when reading:

How does the language of the novel impact the reading experience? – Is there something characteristic or unique about the way the novel is written? If so, what? – Why do you think the author wrote the novel like they did? Quotes If the quote is shorter than two lines use “…”, for example “When Anna saw the huge bear she was terrified”(page 32) If the quote is longer, make the text smaller and make an indentation:

When Anna saw the bear she was terrified. When she realised that it was moving towards her she didn’t know what to do. Should she run? No, she knew she wasn’t faster than a bear so that wouldn’t be of any use. Could she perhaps hit the bear on the nose and thereby surprise it? No, now she knew what to do, lie down in the moss and curl herself up as a ball and hope the bear would not harm her. (page 32) Try to use short quotes that say a lot about what you want to analyse.

Example Analysis Below, you will find an example analysis written by a teacher. It has been commented to point out things that you can think about when writing your own analysis.

Use specific examples, which is using five quotes from different chapters after “Making unions your business partners.” *I need it to be done by 11:59 P.M today. *No additional resources is needed.

Question 1348 Graphics assignment

For this assignment, you will be creating your own charts, tables, and graphs based on the information you gather through research. 1. Research the prices for regular unleaded, super unleaded, and ethanol-gasoline at three different gas stations in the metro area.

Create an appropriate line graph, pie graph and bar graph each highlighting a different aspect of the information you gathered. 2. Create a table comparing the rankings of three of your favorite pro or college sports teams over the last five years.

Choose two aspects of their ranking that you want to compare in addition to their overall ranking. Make sure your graphics follow all the rules below regarding good graphic use. The graphic must be positioned in the text as near as possible to the text it supplements.

It should not be in the back of the report or at the end of the information is contained on the first page. It should be embedded on the page where the subject is discussed. 2. The graphic must be labeled with a number and a title that indicates what the graphic presents. Look at the examples in the book. Every graphic contains a number and a title that is descriptive. 3. Each graphic must be referred to in the text.

You can’t just pop a graphic in and move on. You must refer to it in your writing. You may be discussing the ACT scores of a particular high school over the last five years and you have a graph that outlines those scores. You don’t just place the graphic in the text, you must refer to it by saying something like, “As you can see from the graph below (figure 1.) the ACT scores have significantly improved over the last five years.” 4. Graphics must be sourced. Just like textual information, graphic information must be referenced.

You need to make sure you indicate where the information came from with correct MLA format. 5. All graphs must have an axis labeled and must start at zero. 6. Graphics must not be manipulated to prove your point. 7. There should be a legend to understand the graphic.

If you are showing data from different years in different colors, you must have a legend that tells which color refers to which year. 8. Graphics should enhance and add to the understanding of the information you are presenting. Graphics are not merely added to decorate the document. They must serve a purpose and relate directly to the point you are making or the concept you are illustrating.

Question 1353 English assignment

There is three parts to this assignment. The assignment needs to be written in MLA format 12 font double spaced times new roman. For the first part: This is a one page (250 words) typed commentary about Considering your major (psychology), what role with strong writing and analytical skills have on your career and/or continued college career?

The second part: This part of the assignment needs to be two paragraphs (10 sentences long each paragraph) the first paragraph is going to explain why you chose to write about the painting from Pablo Picasso called girl before a mirror. The second paragraph will explain the outside sources you will use to help you argue your point in the third part.

The third part: Write a 3.5 page essay examining the significance of the photograph/painting (Pablo Picasso) and why or how the photograph/painting has been elevated to an iconic status. It will also require you to define the word icon. What does it mean for a photograph/painting to be iconic? It is your job to come up with an argument based on your reading of the photograph/painting as well as your definition of the word icon.

This will require you to write about the photograph or painting as well as the artist who created it. Use Stein and Davenport as models. Both essays do the same thing I am asking you to do. Notice how they examine both the artist and the photograph/painting.

This will require a careful reading of the photograph/painting, research, and critical thinking/analysis. As part of the essay, you should research the artist or photograph/painting you are evaluating. What do others say about this artist or his or her photograph/painting? Critically read the photograph/painting, and like Davenport, incorporate your critical reading into your essay.

What is in the foreground and background? What can you infer about the image based on that which surrounds it? Does the photograph/painting symbolise anything? Be sure to have the photograph/painting in front of you as you write. Finally, argue why this photograph/painting should be viewed as iconic by exploring what it represents, communicates, and/or symbolizes. Here is where you will get to use your critical thinking and analytical skills.

Question 1354 bad news letter

Question 1355 English assignment

There is two parts to this assignment. Both parts need to be 12 font double spaced times new roman MLA format. Guidelines for part one: 3 typed pages, 12 point font, double-spaced, Times New Roman. You MUST write at least 3 full pages, not including the Works Cited page.

You may write more than 3 pages. Please note this is only 3 pages but you may write more. The Topic: First, read Susan Sontag’s essay “Regarding the Pain of Others” Second, formulate a reaction to the piece based on your reading. Write an essay that both examines Sontag’s essay and explores your reaction. This assignment requires you to describe and analyse your reaction, using quotes to support your examination.

Be sure to analyse several quotes — as well as respond to them — connecting the analyses to your reactions, drawing a broader conclusion regarding what you’ve learned about the effects of challenging images.

Guidelines for the second part: In a one page — about 250 words — write a review of the novel 1984, imagining you are writing for a newspaper or similar publication. Please include the following: • a brief summary • the novel highlights (according to you) • a review of the writing style • your personal thoughts about whether this is a book others should take the time to read

Question 1358 Logical Fallacies

Include the name of the fallacy as a heading within your paper.

1. Explain the fallacy, using a signal phrase that includes the source that informed your understanding.

2. Use an example to illustrate the fallacy. Show an example of a current-day advertisement, news clip, public service announcement, political speech or campaign, letter to the editor, public speech, blog or social media post that uses this fallacy.

3. Explain how the example illustrates the logical fallacy which you are defining.

4. Create a Works Cited entry for the source that informed your understanding of the logical fallacy.

5. Create a Works Cited entry for the example of the fallacy. FOR AN A: Work alone, in a pair or with a small group, and create a video or live presentation to share with the class. Select five logical fallacies to define and exemplify. You must find a way to demonstrate that your video does not simply “borrow” from videos already in existence.

FOR A B: Work alone, in a pair or with a small group, and create a video or live presentation to share with the class. Select three logical fallacies to define and exemplify. You must find a way to demonstrate that your video does not simply “borrow” from videos already in existence.

FOR A C: Work alone, in a pair or with a small group, and create a video or slide presentation to share with the professor. Select three logical fallacies to define and exemplify. You must find a way to demonstrate that your video does not simply “borrow” from videos already in existence.

FOR A TEN-POINT BONUS: Do not use any example of a fallacy that any other group is using. The best (but not the only) way to do this is to select fallacies that no one else has chosen. (Yes, you will need to communicate not just with your own group, but with other groups. AND if another individual or group uses the same example as you or your group, neither group will receive the ten point bonus. I know–so unfair!)

Question 1359 Alice Walker’s short story “Everyday Use”

Discussion PROMPT: Alice Walker’s short story “Everyday Use” was written at a particular moment in history, when, for the first time, a young generation of black Americans were demonstrating pride in their African roots and attempting to connect to that part of their identity.

Alice Walker was herself an activist, but this story is not about the civil rights or black power movements. Rather, it’s about a mother learning to see her two daughters clearly for perhaps the first time. Select one of the following questions and write a well-developed paragraph or two in response (minimum 150 words, not including quotes from the story).

Please use at least one supporting detail from the text in your answer. If there are topics below which have not been selected by the time you begin to write, please choose from among them.

1.What is the symbolic significance of the quilt in this story (you should begin with the quilt, but need not stop there) ?

2.Which sister does Walker seem to feel most for, and why?

3.How is the title of the story related to Mama’s epiphany at the end of the story? What is that epiphany?

4.Based on the events of the story, what would you say Walkers theory of art might be? [Think about how Dee plans to use the items she is removing from her mother’s home]. Main posts and responses should include references as appropriate.

We will address the following topics: •Fiction •Analyzing Literature This course will cover three genres of literature: fiction, poetry, and drama. We are beginning with fiction, and will read several short stories. We begin with an Alice Walker short story, “Everyday Use,” a story about a mother and her two daughters, one who has remained home with her while the other has gone off to college and never come back–until now.

While we are generally used to such stories being about the successful college graduate coming home to show off how much she’s changed, Walker’s story is really about the mother she left behind. It is through Mama’s eyes that we see both daughters and it is Mama who changes.

As you read Walker’s story, apply the five steps for analysis that are in the Analyzing Literature reading this week–and also try to use the literary terms listed in that reading when you write your discussion board response (where applicable). (The PDF file for Everyday Use Alice walker could not be attached. the file exceeded 16 MB).

Question 1360 Faulkner’s Barn Burning

WEEK 2 DISCUSSION #1: FAULKNER’S “BARN BURNING” . PROMPT: Faulkner was interested in the clash created by the new “industrialism” in the South. While Abner sees himself as fighting against modernization, his son Sarty sees things differently. Are they representatives of the Old South and the New South, or are things not quite so “black and white”?

Choose TWO of the topics below and explain your response in detail. One topic (250 words) Another topic (300 words)

1.In “Everyday Use,” we discussed the symbol of the quilt and how it impacted the meaning of the story. What symbol or symbols do you see in Faulkner’s story that function the same way? Identify a symbol and explain its significance.

2.Faulkner’s use of narration isn’t consistent. We hear the story primarily from Sarty’s point of view, but some things readers are told are beyond Sarty’s knowledge or experience. What are these things and why does Faulkner include them?

3.What is so important about the marring of the deSpain’s rug?

4.Why is Abner Snopes setting fires? What are the social and economic circumstances of the 1930s that might help explain this?

5.What are the complex factors surrounding the following decisions made by Snopes? Choose one from the list below and go into detail

◦His burning of Harris’ barn

◦His “cleaning” the rug the way he does

◦His suing de Spain

◦His burning of de Spain’s barn

Question 1361 ERNEST HEMINGWAY “HILLS LIKE WHITE ELEPHANTS”

DISCUSION ERNEST HEMINGWAY “HILLS LIKE WHITE ELEPHANTS” . One response (250 words) second response (300 words) PROMPT: Hemingway is best known for his novels, especially The Old Man and the Sea, which won him both a Pulitzer Prize and was cited by the Nobel Committee when they awarded him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.

He was also a well-known adventurer, war veteran, and world traveler. His writing style was very influential among modernist writers—it is sparse and clean, but upon close reading, reveals great depths. In his 1932 novel Death in the Afternoon, Hemingway had this to say about writers, and it tells us a great deal about his approach to his own work:

If a writer of prose knows enough about what he is writing about he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them. The dignity of movement of an iceberg is due to only one-eighth of it being above water. (192) This is called Hemingway’s “Iceberg Theory” and it certainly applies to “Hills Like White Elephants.”

The story, at first, appears to be nothing more than a conversation between two people; upon closer reading, the conversation turns out to be an incredibly important one. Please answer the following questions about the story.

1.Identify and explain something Hemingway has included in this story that helps the reader figure out what is being discussed–without him ever having to say it. (You may need to figure out the topic of their conversation first). There are clues everywhere, but Hemingway doesn’t like to share them too overtly. Let’s find them together.

Make sure you not only identify these clues but explain what they mean. (Examples–the landscape, the beaded curtains, the luggage, the elephant Jig mentions, even the dialogue).

2.Using the iceberg theory from the introduction, choose something else besides the operation you think probably has more importance in the story than readers might believe at first, and decide whether Hemingway has written “truly” enough so that you “have a feeling of [that thing] as strongly as though the writer had stated [it].”

Has he offered enough clues to figure it out? Explain. It’s all right to select something you believe to be minor (it may not be minor at all). If you use the same answer as another student, be sure you are adding something new to the conversation.

Question 1362 English Language

PROMPT: Peter Davidson, who edited Frost’s collection North of Boston notes: Frost “lost two children to death in early childhood, another to insanity, another to death after childbirth, and still another (after the death of [his] wife, Elinor) to suicide.”

Given the personal tragedies Frost experienced, it seems inevitable that a strain of grief, and perhaps bitterness, would run through his poetry. Select BOTH questions below and write a well-developed paragraph or two in response. Please use at least one supporting detail from the text in your answer. Who is most sympathetic here, the husband or Amy? Defend your position using evidence from the poem.

What do you think the speaker means when he says: “‘Three foggy mornings and one rainy day/Will rot the best birch fence a man can build.’”(96-7)? He’s referring to something more than literal fog and rain and fence—what might it be? Based on your own experience(s), is this a fair statement? Explain. Minimum of 300 words for each paragraph

Question 1363 Metacognition Assignment

Question 1364 Ezra Pound’s “In a Station of the Metro”

PROMPT: In this two line poem, Pound was attempting to capture a momentary image of breathtaking beauty in the way he imagined a painter would. We know that he scaled this poem back to two lines from its original thirty so that only the most essential elements remained.

The poets who attempted this kind of writing were called “imagists.” Here’s a definition from the University of Pennsylvania: “The Imagists wrote succinct verse of dry clarity and hard outline in which an exact visual image made a total poetic statement.” (Check the “Readings/Preparation” area this week for help with this poem).

Think about the following: What is the comparison Pound makes in this poem? What is he trying to accomplish with that comparison? Now, answer this– In your opinion, has Pound succeeded in creating an “exact visual image” which makes “a total poetic statement?” Support your answer with references to the poem. https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/station-metro

Question 1365 Billy Collins’ “On Turning Ten”:

From the Poetry Foundation webpage on Billy Collins: “Dubbed ‘the most popular poet in America’ by Bruce Weber in the New York Times, Billy Collins is famous for conversational, witty poems that welcome readers with humour but often slip into quirky, tender or profound observation on the everyday, reading and writing, and poetry itself.

Collins has offered a slightly different take on his appeal, admitting that his poetry is ‘suburban, it’s domestic, it’s middle class, and it’s sort of unashamedly that.’” Respond to the following question: When you first read this poem, did you think it was funny? Why or why not?

In reading this poem, did you agree more with Bruce Weber’s assessment of Collins’ poetry or Collins’ own assessment? Both? Neither? In a well-developed paragraph and using at least one example from the poem, explain why.

Question 1366 The Charge of the Light Brigade

PROMPT: Alfred Tennyson’s poem, “Charge of the Light Brigade,& quote is a poem about what has been called & quote either the most heroic or disastrous episodes in British military history.

It focuses on an event in the Crimean War (1853-1856), but might be applied to wartime even today. Select the TWO following prompts and explain your position with support from the poem itself.

1. Defend this position: This poem glorifies war.

2. Defend this position: This poem does not glorify war. Background: https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/charge-of-the-light-brigade

Question 1367 Shakespeare Much A Do About Nothing

PROMPT: Much Ado About Nothing Acts 1-3 Choose TWO questions from each act and write a paragraph in response (three paragraphs total). Before you select the question, make sure there are no questions left unanswered—you should respond to unanswered questions first.

This is a good reason to post early—you will have more choices available. Act One What is the backdrop for the arrival of Don Pedro and his men? Why is this significant to the plot of the play? What is the substance of Don Pedro’s private conversation with the lovesick Claudio? Why is Don Pedro in such a hurry, do you think?

Is it a good idea for him to woo in Claudio’s place? Why or why not? How do we know that Beatrice and Benedick are in a “skirmish of wit”? Who seems to be winning? What is said that leads the audience to believe these two have a past, and why is that important, particularly when we reach Act 3 and Don Pedro’s “trick”? Act Two In what ways does this Act reveal Hero to be different from Beatrice, and why might that be true?

Why does her uncle tolerate Beatrice’s insistence on remaining a “maid” but tell his daughter to accept Prince Don John’s offer of marriage (should he make such an offer)? Why does Beatrice tease Benedick at the party, and why is he so upset? What is she insinuating about him? Why does he care? Finally, why does Beatrice turn down Don Pedro’s offer of marriage?

What happens in this Act between Balthasar and Margaret and Ursula and Antonio? How are these events important to the rest of the play? Act Three In Act 3, we at last hear something from Hero. What does she say? How is she different when she is among other women than when she is in the company of her father and other men? How does scene one enhance our understanding of her character? Don’t forget to discuss scene 4.

In this Act, Beatrice and Benedick are “tricked” into falling in love. How does it happen, and why is it so easy? (Think about this one carefully). Constable Dogberry and the Watch are introduced in this Act. These are  who are paid to patrol and stand guard—remember that Leonato, Hero’s father, is Messina’s governor.

Why do you think Shakespeare introduces them here and why is Dogberry written to be so pompous and uneducated?

Question 1368 Passage analysis

It is a really specific topic. I have a posted a photo in the attached file which is two pages. All you have to relate is that two pages with the whole Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.

Look for literary elements within the poem and discuss how the author uses those elements (a good basic way to approach analysis when you are learning is to see what literary elements the author uses and how those elements can support the work’s theme; for example, how does the use of symbolism and imagery support the poem’s theme?).

So remember to have a strong introduction, with a clear thesis, well-developed body paragraphs that relate to the thesis, and a conclusion. Second part: Write a minimum of 200 word on Li- Young Lee poet and explain what it is about that poet’s work that is relevant to readers today. Why did it stand out to you?

Must be IEEE format.

Question 1376  Narrative Paragraph

After reading Chapter 5, choose one of the following topics and write a narrative paragraph using the TEST template. Note in this chapter the importance of transition words. See the bottom of page 86 for examples.

An embarrassing situation A dangerous experience An instance of injustice A time you made a mistake A time you made an important decision An unfortunate date A vacation that didn’t go well A day you would like to forget An encounter that changed your life Keep in mind following important tips: 1) Begin your paragraph with a topic sentence.

Your topic sentence (called a “thesis sentence” at the beginning of an essay) needs to identify your subject AND what you are going to say about that subject. For example, the topic on page 86 has the topic sentence, “Creating viral video isn’t easy.

So, the subject here is “creating a viral video.” That doesn’t tell the reader much. You also need what can be called a “point of significance.” In this case, it is “isn’t easy.” Thus your reader knows immediately what your point of view is going to be about your subject and thus what to expect in this paragraph. 2) The “meat” of your paragraph, that is, the evidence must prove or illustrate your point with facts, details, descriptions, reasons, etc.

This is what makes your paragraph or essay interesting and convincing. Don’t expect your reader to take your word for anything; show your reader that what you are saying is true or accurate. Recreate the experience for them. Pertinent details make the paragraph both believable and interesting.

Question 1377 Tool Creation Directions and Usability Test Memo

There are two final tasks for Level 2 that you must complete. The first task asks you to come up with a tool, made of everyday household items. The purpose of this tool is to offer a more ergonomic experience for students who often stress and strain their bodies when writing papers: looking down at sources, looking back to the computer screen to type, etc. Then, your job is to write directions on how to construct and use the tool.

The second task asks you to conduct usability tests to determine the effectiveness of the tool and your directions and then write a memo that reveals the results of the test. Effective instructions must always be highly reader-centred: meaning they must respond to the needs of readers and users.

Together, these tasks encourage the growth of problem-solving skills, grant you experience conducting usability tests, recording and presenting data, and asks you to practice writing as a producer who thinks like a consumer. The Particulars While I say above that there are two final tasks to Level 2, we might argue that there are actually four.

As I mentioned above, you will need to do the following: With the ergonomic problem in mind, develop and design a tool that helps students overcome that problem. Your tool doesn’t have to solve the problem completely, but it should still be useful. Then, you have to build the tool using every day household items—or at least items that can be easily obtained via the Internet. It should be simple enough that almost anyone could make the tool and use it. The deliverable for this task is an instruction set.

The instructions must do two things: A) direct the reader how to construct the tool and B) instruct the reader on how to use the tool. The design and language of this document should keep the reader in mind—who is going to be using this tool and reading your instructions? How can you best convey to these readers how to make and use your tool via text and design? The next step is to have no fewer than 2, but ideally 3 (three is the magic number) people attempt to construct and use the tool you designed.

This is the actual usability test. You should conduct this test in a controlled environment to avoid outside interference and to prevent skewed test results. Observe any difficulties the subjects experience with the instructions—doing so will help you revise your instructions to make them even better. Record the amount of time that subjects require to understand and correctly construct and use the tool.

Also note any questions—which you’re not allowed to answer!—that the subjects ask or anything else that subjects do or say while constructing and using the tool. You might encourage your subjects to “think out loud” while completing the usability test. Finally, write the Usability Test Memo.

The memo must include the following parts—note them, as the usability test memo genre is different than the memo genre we’ve been writing in up until now. The memo should be between 2–3 pages, no fewer than 1000 words.

Introduction: Remind readers of the topic and target instruction audience Objectives: Identify the objectives of your user test Method: Thoroughly, accurately, and persuasively describe test procedure and instruments, and user selection process Results / Discussion: Specifically, and in great detail, report test results.

Include descriptions of tester difficulties and questions Conclusion: Describe test results and their consequences. What are you going to do moving forward? Things to Keep in Mind The key thing that you’re trying to accomplish with this task is to convey to others, in writing alone, how to build and use a tool. But, the formatting of the instructions and to some extent the usability test memo is up to you.

What makes the most sense in terms of design and formatting for this rhetorical situation? Minimum Requirements for Instructions Between the creation and how to use the tool, there should be no fewer than four (4) steps.

You must design the instructions with your audience and purpose in mind You must develop a tool that helps to address the issue of ergonomics when writing papers using ordinary, easy-to-obtain materials.

The instructions must be organised and easy-to-follow You must research the problem that your tool intends to assuage Minimum Usability Test Memo Have 2–3 people build and use the tool you created based on your composed instructions alone Ethically record the successes and failures of the instruction set during the usability tests Your usability test memo must contain and adequately treat all parts of the genre: Introduction, Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusion Your usability test memo should be 2–3 pages long, no fewer than 1000 words, and should adhere to the memo genre’s formatting conventions.

Write and design your memo with an audience and purpose in mind Minimum Requirements for Level-up Memo In many ways, the Level-up Memo is more important than the deliverables themselves. This is where the learning actually occurs, so take this seriously.

To that end, you Level-up Memo must address all of the below prompts in order to beat this level. The memo should be between 1–2 pages long. Who is your audience for each deliverable? What have you done in terms of design and choice of language to appeal to these audiences? What purposes, apart from the obvious ones, do your deliverables fulfill? (Hint: You might have to think about this some).

What were the results of your usability test? How did you revise your instructions as a result? In your own estimation, what are the most effective elements of your materials? Why do you think so?

If given more time and resources, what would you have like to have done differently? How do you think that these differences would have improved your materials? If you chose to pursue a Composite (C) score, what did you do, specifically, to modify your materials beyond the minimum requirements? How did your modifications make your materials even better?
