You must answer THREE (3) OF THE FOUR (4) of questions below. Each of the questions are weighted equally. You will receive no extra credit or poins for answering all 4 of the questions.

  1. You are the Head of the FBI Anti-terrorism division in Los Angeles. You have apprehended a suspect you have reason to believe is the member of a major terrorist organization.You have obtained additional information from an independent source that a nuclear bomb will be exploded within the next 24 hours somewhere in the city by the very same terrorist organization that this suspect is a member of. Your top police interrogators have tried questioning the suspect for the past several hours, but he either refuses to say anything or just laughs in their faces, and with a wild, crazed look in his eyes, makes gestures and sounds of a loud explosion. Based on your many years of law enforcement experience, you do not believe you will get any more information from the suspect via traditional questioning and that the only way to get information is through “less traditional means”. You face a real ethical dilemma. Do you torture the suspect in the hope that maybe he can provide information on the possible attack, perhaps saving millions of lives? Or, is it the case that the torture will not yield any type of meaningful response? What about the rights of the suspect? Using both Kantian and Utilitarian theories/models, argue both sides for and against using the torture techniques. Use examples from what was covered in class and from the readings. Be specific. You need not have any knowledge about anti-torture or Homeland Security-related laws in the United States, but you should assume that all forms of torture would be considered illegal in the situation described here.

2. You are the Director of Product Development at ABC Corp., a firm which manufacturers semiconductors.Your cousin happens to the CEO of DEF Corp., a major competitor of ABC. At a recent family gathering your cousin inquires how things are going for you at ABC and offers you a “part-time job” at DEF working in the same area of product development. Your cousin assures that you can work “remotely” and on “weekends” so as not interfere with your M-F, 9-5 schedule at ABC. While your cousin assured you that all this was on the “up and up”, he asked you to download and share with him all your project and development plans at ABC just to get a sense “what was going on at ABC”. Using the any of the concepts and theories covered in this class (including ethical theories and rationalizations) discuss the implications of accepting the DEF Corp. part-time offer. You need not have any knowledge of employment law, trade secret law or intellectual property law generally to answer this question. For those of you that do have knowledge in these areas, you will get no extra points or credit for incorporating such “additional information” in to your answer.

3. Is there a place or need for ethics in business? I want clear opinions, supported not by idle speculation or flim-flam, but rather by the substantive materials covered in class and from the course readings, including the case studies.You will be graded on the quality and depth of your answer (supported by solid arguments and sources to back them up) as opposed to any specific conclusion(s) you reach.

4. Using ethical theories and rationalizations discussed in class, compare and contrast the ethical lapses ofBernie Madoff, Elizabeth Holmes and Harvey Weinstein. Use examples. Be specific.

Use examples. Be specific.

For ALL of these questions you need not use any outside sources (other than those assigned and covered in this class). Citations are not necessary. If you wish to use them, you can include them at the end

Grading Rubric:

Following directions, style, and format: 25%

Quality of analysis and depth: 50%

Effective use of examples from readings, class discussions and videos: 25%

Answer the following questions after you complete chapter 3, “Learning from Aviation Security Disasters”. Then respond to two classmate’s posts once I submit this discussion post.

BOOK: Birkland, T. A. (2020). An Introduction to the Policy Process, 5th edition. New York: Routledge.

How did the three major aviation security disasters (TWA, Pan-Am, and 9/11) influence the agenda? 

Was the institutional agenda influenced by the other types of agendas as well? 

Peer responses

!Kirvani KhanagwalSaturdayOct 30 at 3:49pmManage Discussion EntryAs a result of the three major aviation security disasters, aviation security became priority. Congress, investigating commissions, government agencies, and interest groups all focused on how to keep attackers and hijackers off the airplanes. Since flights is one of the most common modes of travel, the aviation sectors security was taken more seriously. The attacks of September 11 changed the nations perception on both the probability of such a catastrophic terrorist attack and perception of the consequences as a result of the attacks. Some other changes were made as-well as a result of the attacks such as Marshals, security of the cockpit, provide security training, passenger profiling, airport access control, and background checks. 

Ashley Platero

SaturdayOct 30 at 5:05pmManage Discussion EntryThese three major aviation security disasters influenced the Agenda because these Agenda move issues from the systematic Agenda to the institutional Agenda. If the policy issue becomes serious enough, or in the case of the Aviation disasters, the policymakers such as governors and congress decide how to act on the particular topic. All of these disasters led to the policymakers doing something. And it is pushed forward in the agenda-setting process. After all these aviation disasters, all the policymakers decided that something needed to be done, especially after 9/11 and the past two aviation disasters, the United States established the Department of Homeland Security and enforced their immigration laws. They made policy changes and set new policies such as the Patriot Act. They surveillance everything through the Department of Homeland Security, and they made airports more secure, immigration more secure, and air travel in general.

literary analysis outline

undefined

You have a few options for this literary analysis paper.

undefined

Now, what is a literary analysis? A literary analysis paper (for our purposes) ignores everything except the text. So, you don’t need to rely on outside sources — your thoughts are just as valid as anyone else’s thoughts. That’s a good thing. Still, what is it? The main purpose of a literary analysis is to examine a text in order to explain and expand upon/deepen our understanding of the text. It is very often judgmental…but there’s a catch.

undefined

This is not a book review. You do not have to tell me whether you loved the book or hated it, so that kind of judgment doesn’t count. Instead, you examine the author’s craft. You judge how well (effectively) or how poorly (ineffectively) the author accomplished a particular goal.

undefined

What’s the goal, you may ask? The goal of most writers is to convey a theme (or themes) to the reader. Robert Heinlein is known for discussing certain ideas, certain themes throughout his fifty years of writing. Just about every idea/theme that he ever wrote about shows up in our novel. They include:

undefined

  1. Individuality, individualism, and individual freedom. These ideas would also include: self-reliance, being the “competent” individual, and Libertarianism — which includes belief in individual freedom as well as a small, non-interfering-with-the-individual government
  2. Government interference as well as surveillance.
  3. The disintegration of society, and true freedom is often found outside of the society at the frontiers.
  4. Religion and, usually, how awful it is.
  5. Marriage and belonging, including: free love, free sex, and open marriages
  6. Prejudice and racism.

undefined

So…your job is to pick ONE of these and discuss it.

undefined

How do you discuss them well while focusing on the literature?

undefined

First, choose an idea or set of ideas. Then brainstorm a list of instances when/where these ideas are expressed in the story. Then, choose ONE element (or perhaps two closely related elements) of fiction to narrow your focus on the theme. The choices of elements of fiction include:

undefined

  • plot
  • setting
  • character
  • point of view/perspective
  • symbols
  • style, tone, and/or language

undefined

Now, the example that I used in class today (for those who were absent) was this.

undefined

Let’s say we focus on the theme of “prejudice.” Important: remember that a theme is not a topic. Prejudice is a topic. A theme says something ABOUT a topic, such as “prejudice is terrible” or “prejudice is endemic to human society” or something like that.

undefined

In our example, we said that “Throughout the story of Friday, Heinlein shows that prejudice is awful and affects our protagonist in negative, dehumanizing ways.” Then we brainstormed instances of prejudice.

undefined

  1. Being stood up on a date with another AP
  2. The Tongan episode with her NZ family
  3. Being divorced because she is an AP (has no soul)
  4. Conversations with Georges and Boss on being an AP
  5. Friday versus the other APs (Pete and Tilly)
  6. Vicksburg, where normal people stay in upper Vicksburg and APs and human artifacts stay in lower Vicksburg
  7. Friday’s argument why APs should not pilot the semi-ballistics

undefined

Now, we can choose “character” and examine how Friday develops as a character throughout these encounters with prejudice. Or, we could examine “language” and focus on dialogue and narration to see how these prejudicial situations are expressed. Or we could focus on symbols and how often, and why, she refers to her creation as “my mother was a test tube and my father was a knife.” Or we could focus on setting to show how setting affects or figures into the expression of prejudice. Or we could examine the plot and show how the focus on prejudice is throughout the story but rears its head in stronger or weaker episodes.

undefined

So, you see, while thinking about the theme of “prejudice is bad,” we can use one or more elements of fiction to show how well/poorly the author constructed the story to get that idea across.

undefined

There are NO RIGHT OR WRONG ANSWERS. The answers are all good as long as you can support them, back them up, and explain them clearly. Do not worry about showing your like or dislike for the book. That’s not the point here. Instead, show that Heinlein did a good job, a bad job, or an uneven job (sometimes good and sometimes bad) in conveying this theme to you, the reader.

undefined

Here, in this assignment, please submit your outline of the planned essay. The outline may look similarly to previous outlines or differently. You may organize it in a chronological order (tracing your way throughout the novel) or in an emphatic manner (moving from least significant to more significant to most significant in the novel).

undefined

I hope this helps.

undefined

Some other things to consider.

undefined

Literary Analysis

undefined

  1. Is generally focused on one topic
    1. A theme or symbol(s) or development, and so on.
  2. Is supported by:
    1. textual examples (either quotations or paraphrases)
    2. explanations
  3. It examines the text, and ignores everything outside of the text.
  4. It may consider any of the following:
    1. structure, plot
    2. setting(s)
    3. character(s)
    4. style, tone, language
    5. symbols, allegories, allusions
  5. If there is a summary of the text, it is extremely brief (perhaps a sentence or two, certainly no more than a paragraph) and at the beginning of the essay.
  6. Remember that the narrator is not the same as the author.
  7. Literature is crafted, so examine the craft

undefined

Remember that this type of essay is different from the previous one. In a exemplification essay, we have an emphasis on evidence (along with explanations of that evidence). In a literary analysis essay, the emphasis is reversed. You certainly have textual evidence, but the emphasis is on your analysis — your thoughts, insights, perceptions. You need to give judgment and show not only what you think but why you think that.

undefined

You essay must be :

undefined

  1. Written in third-person narrative perspective
  2. Use multiple (at least three) sources that are
    1. Explained
    2. Cited
    3. From the novel, Friday (no outside sources are needed)
  3. Clearly organized
  4. Follows MLA style and format
  5. 4-6 pages in length, plus a Works Cited page

NOTE: Sources such as spark notes, monkey notes, shmoop, e-notes, wikipedia, and other essay-helping sites are simply not acceptable. Your grade on an assignment will be a ZERO if you provide evidence from these types of sites.

The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) monitors six categories of health-related behaviors that contribute to the leading causes of death and disability among youth and adults, including:

  • Behaviors that contribute to unintentional injuries and violence.
  • Sexual behaviors related to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV infection.
  • Alcohol and other drug use.
  • Tobacco use.
  • Unhealthy dietary behaviors.
  • Inadequate physical activity.

Prompt

Let’s say your school district is considering eliminating health as a required course in the curriculum. As a public health educator you have been asked to prepare a 5 minute statement (about 2 full pages, double spaced) to help advocate for health education in schools. Using data from the YRBSS, consider the following questions or topics in your statement:

  • Introduce yourself and the purpose of your statement
  • Should health education be required in schools? Why?
  • When and how frequently should health education take place?
  • What are some topics that should be included? Why? What does the data say about this issue?

Important: Use the YRBSS data to support your responses. For example, the following is an argument without evidence to support your point:

“Health education in high school should include sex education because the YRBSS data shows that the percent of sexually active teens increases with grade level.”

By adding evidence/data, the statement is more powerful, more accurate, and evidence-based. Such as:

“Health education in high school should include sex education because the YRBSS 2019 data shows that “the prevalence of having ever had sexual intercourse was higher among 10th-grade (33.6%), 11th-grade (46.5%), and 12th-grade (56.7%) than 9th-grade (19.2%) students.”

You may approach this topic advocating for a full range of health topics (such as the 6 topics covered in the YRBSS) or you can advocate for the inclusion of one particular topic in the health curriculum. you are NOT required to have a references page.

Hi please follow the prompt below. Please write 4 full pages MLA style and use reliable sources only and the sources I will provide. Feel free to choose one of the topics out of the 3 listed. They are random topics, but make it clear and follow the format provided to argue/persuade why. And of course, no plagiarism!


The assignment:

Please write a nicely detailed argumentation-persuasion ESSAY on your choice of ONE of the following topics.

  1. We should go to the Moon (and forget about going to Mars for now).
  2. We should go to Mars (and forget about going to the Moon for now).
  3. We should go to the Moon and then go to Mars.

For any of these topics, please conduct some research and cite and use at least three different sources. Of course, you may use outside sources or you may simply use the sources provided within the module). As with all arguments, you must support your perspective with detailed reasons, examples, and explanations. The usual formatting requirements apply.

  1. MLA style and format
  2. Length: 4-6 pages, not including a Works Cited page
  3. A Works Cited page

One last reminder. The sources you use must come from our module and/or your own research. Avoid unreliable or other “sketchy” sources. NOTE: Sources such as spark notes, monkey notes, shmoop, e-notes, wikipedia, and other essay-helping sites are simply not acceptable. Your grade on an assignment will be a ZERO if you cite or provide evidence from these types of sites. You will not be allowed to revise or rewrite an outline or essay that uses or cites any of these types of sources.

Here’s how it should look:

Title: (not just a label such as “argumentation essay”)

Thesis: (This should be one declarative sentence — a strong assertion/opinion — that states your topic and what you will attempt to prove/disprove about it).

Now, a couple of things to keep in mind.

  1. An argument may be structured very similarly to an exemplification (and much of an argument consists of explaining and providing supporting examples/proofs — just like in an exemplification essay). There really is no one “perfect way” to organize an argument.
  2. However, there are some pieces that must be included in an argument:
    1. A claim, which is what you’re trying to prove (that’s your thesis).
    2. A “concession” where you validate the opinion of your opponent. This shows some commonality between the two sides and respect for your opponent.
    3. A counterargument to your opponent’s point of view or proofs. Some writers choose to include a counterargument as part of the introduction. This is where you would state your opponent’s point of view/argument.
    4. A refutation/rebuttal, where you (nicely) disprove your opponent’s point of view/argument, show how it is wrong, and then go on to prove how your point of view/argument is right.
    5. Then you spend the rest of the paper proving that your side is superior.
    6. Typically, an argument ends with a “call to action” where you try to get the reader to do something after listening to your argument.
  • Your essay should be 4+ pages in length PLUS a Works Cited page.
  • Please cite at least three references, our text plus an additional outside source.
  • Use MLA format, please.

Purpose

We have come to the end of our third section, and we now have the opportunity to reflect on our course material and connect it to contemporary examples of political rhetoric. For our third case study, we will examine how social movements, government leaders, and corporations employ rhetoric to increase their leverage in on-going political disputes.

Prompt

We will be using controversy surrounding the Georgia Senate Bill 202 as our case our third case study. Specific artifacts include public statements about SB 202 from Stacey Abrams, GA Governor Brian Kemp, and representatives of the Coca-Cola Corporation. Read the documents and watch the two videos posted on Canvas in Announcements/Artifacts for Case Study # 3. Then, answer the questions below. There is no minimum length, just make sure to provide a thorough answer. When you provide an example, it has to be unique, so don’t merely reuse an example from the Anderson reading.

  1. What is the rhetorical context for this controversy? Identify at least two examples relevant rhetorical context.

What are some things happening at the time or in the videos that help you determine the rhetorical context? Make sure you reference the context for each speaker/artifact. Your examples can be aspects of the context generally, or one of the elements of Bitzer’s rhetorical situation – exigence, constraint, and/or audience.

  1. How is language being used to shape the audience’s view of events? Identify at least one specific example of language from the comments of Abrams and Kemp.

How is language (specifically metaphor) being used to negotiate values, establish a view of the situation, and/or recommend a course of action?

  1. How did Coca-Cola Corporation negotiate the risks and rewards of issuing public statements about SB 202?

Your answer should identify at least two factors raised in the Callander (Links to an external site.) and/or Diermier (Links to an external site.) readings that corporations need to consider when deciding whether and/or how to engage in political controversies.

  1. Evaluate the quality:

Choose either Abrams, Kemp, or Coca-Cola, and based on your answers to questions 1-3, make an initial evaluation of the quality of their rhetoric. Was this an effective response to the rhetorical context? Why or why not? Your answer should take into account the specific motives of the actor you chose.

How to Get the Most Out of This Assignment:

  1. Be specific: Remember, the point of the assignment isn’t just to watch the videos. Rather, you should look for what specific, unique observations you can make using course readings. What might Burke, Nichols, Weaver, Parrish, Bitzer, Black, Callander, or Diermier say about these texts? Provide specific examples from the case study articles and videos, and from the reading.

I need an executive summary for the following research report. This provides a summary of research report, including introduction, results, conclusions, and recommendations.

Nurr Designs is a family-owned jewelry business based in Los Angeles and established in 2015. Our client communicated that they’ve been struggling with their online presence and have caused their sales to decrease. After an analysis we concluded that the business wasn’t using social media wisely. Our team agreed that the decision problem is: “How will Nurr Designs strategically use social media to reach a bigger customer base and revive its jewelry business post quarantine?”.

Based on the information our client provided the objective is to increase their following in order to maximize their profit. In order to achieve this we’re going to use secondary research to examine what type of content competitors create to spark interest and attract new customers to their website. This will allow us to understand the type of content our target audience interacts with the most and help Nurr Design recreate similar content for their social media. We will also collect data through primary research that will be done by distributing a questionnaire to existing and potential prospects. This questionnaire will allow us to know if they’re satisfied with the products, if they’re aware about the business, and their intentions to purchase jewelry.

Method

In order to better understand how Nurr Designs could use social media to reach a larger customer base, the research method of primary and secondary research was used. To better recognize the competition and business, secondary data was collected. The methods for collecting primary and secondary data gave a better understanding of the needs of the business. The feedback given was used to improve the customer interaction. After the internal and external secondary data has been analyzed, the primary data of Nurr Designs was collected.

During the research process, benchmarking was used to help in understanding the competitors online presence. To understand how customers view the social media pages, literature searches were conducted. The primary research was used for survey and data collection. Secondary research was conducted to analyze competitors works and contact previous customers. Clients were interviewed individually to get feedback for the business, and reviews left on social media platforms were viewed to see what customers liked.

In order to investigate the decision problem, primary descriptive research in the form of a customer survey was used. Most of the questions were multiple choice, with a few scale rating and free answer questions. The survey was posted on the Nurr Designs Instagram page for people to fill out, and was also sent to the emails of past customers who have purchased before. The survey was given to current and potential customers. A total of 55 people took the survey, and that information was used to see the brands strengths and weaknesses.

The program Google Forms was used to create the survey. The survey consists of 15 questions total, and includes both qualitative and quantitative information. The business wanted to conduct surveys to understand how satisfied customers were on the 5-point scale system and how likely people were to recommend the product offerings. Also, the business wanted to see how aware and knowledgeable customers were about the products. Data was collected on how customers discovered Nurr Designs and what they already knew. To see what social media platforms provided advertisements for the jewelry, aided recall was used. Finally, with intentions, Nurr Designs wanted to understand the likelihood that people would purchase jewelry during and after the covid pandemic. The business wanted to see if people were more or less likely to purchase jewelry during the pandemic, since most stay at home. Continuing with intentions, purchase intentions due to the product quality, sentimental value, and locally owned were measured.

Results

Current customers as well as potential customers and csun students were invited to participate in our research survey. Of the _ people that were invited to take the survey, 55 responded. Only 9.1% were current customers, so most of the responses we got were from potential customers. The demographic of responses included female and male of ages between 16 and 40, with the majority being split almost evenly between 21-28 (40%) and 16-21 (38.2%) groups. Since Nurr Designs is positioned in a female jewelry sector with a focus on necklaces, it was not surprising that most responses were female (69.8%), although, we got more than expected male responses (24.5%) which may suggest that interest in the products came from gift ideas. Still, this concludes that the responders were mostly young female adults.

Casual use is the biggest reason people continue to purchase jewelry and there exists a correlation between the frequency of use and the frequency of purchase. Furthermore, people who buy more frequently are the ones most concerned about the price.

…While looking at the results, it is clear that so far Nurr Designs relies heavily on the successful word of mouth form of marketing (2/3 of all of current customers), with social media being a far second(16.7%). Furthermore, out of all current customers surveyed, none have found Nurr Designs from an Etsy internal search, suggesting that Etsy is not the best platform for Nurr Designs. This leads us to perform a hypothesis testing…

…looking at a crosstab between frequency of purchase and advertising platform, we can clearly see that most people saw ads for jewelry on Instagram, ALTHOUGH, after performing a test of mean differences, we find that those who purchase the most jewelry during the pandemic, see more jewelry advertisement on pinterest (1.79) rather than Instagram (1.64) or even facebook (1.5), suggesting that pinterest is the best platform for gaining the most sales during the pandemic, with Instagram having the highest reach.

Our hypothesis was that pinterest has a significantly larger purchase frequency mean (1.79) than the average (1.6). After performing a right-tailed test, we found that our p-value was 0.047 which is less than 5%, so we reject the null hypothesis in favor of our alternative hypothesis (?)

Conclusion

Based on our literature research, we found that Etsy is actually not a bad platform to sell on despite what we hypothesised before. Etsy’s number of active buyers have more than doubled in the past 3 years, going from 39.45 million in 2018 to 81.9 million in 2020, according to Statista (2021). Though, Etsy’s sellers have increased as well and most identify as women (82%), with California having by far the largest number of sellers compared to other states which puts competitive pressure.

We found that potential customers haven’t seen any jewelry advertisement on Esty and none of the current customers found Nurr Designs store from Etsy search, meaning the store could benefit from etsy sponsored listings since they generate traffic directly to stores. Furthermore, based on our survey’s analysis on social media platform advertising and frequency of buying, we concluded that most people have seen jewelry ads on Instagram, but people who buy the most jewelry in recent times saw more jewelry ads on Pinterest. From our survey of current customers, we found that they don’t mind Etsy. Therefore, we will advise to keep the Etsy store but expand marketing efforts into online platforms like Pinterest (to target frequent buyers of jewelry) and Instagram (to reach the most people).
