In many ways, comparing multiple sample means is simply an extension of what we covered last week.  What situations exist where a multiple (more than two) group comparison would be appropriate? (Note: Situations could relate to your work, home life, social groups, etc.).  Create a null and alternate hypothesis for one of these issues.  What would the results tell you?

Qualitative perspective and a quantitative perspective

Qualitative perspective and a quantitative perspective

  • Choose a communication research topic and explain how you would conduct research from a qualitative perspective and also from a quantitative perspective. Explain with specific examples.

    ·  The body of your paper should be between 500 and 600 words, or about two pages.

    ·  Use one-inch margins on all sides of the paper.

    ·  Use a 12-point font such as Times New Roman or Arial.

    ·  The paper will be based on your thoughts and, therefore, will not require outside citations. However, if you do cite outside references (including the text), you will have to provide the source information. In addition, assignments should demonstrate careful proofreading

Unfortunately, over the last several years, there have been many examples of illegal and unethical business dealings; some involved practicing unethical accounting processes, as well as situations that involved public figures from various genres caught performing various questionable activities. From a philosophical and theoretical point of view, do you feel that individuals holding positions of power or influence should be held to higher levels of accountability for their unethical actions or inactions?

 

Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write up to 4-5 paragraphs that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas: 

 

  • Using the Internet and library, provide at least 2 examples of how corporations and individuals in positions of power and authority have acted unethically either by their actions or inactions.

    Regarding the incidences you found, do you feel the individuals should be held to a higher level of accountability based upon their real or perceived power and influence over others? Explain.

     

    There are many examples of how the actions of a company have negatively affected consumers. Product recalls, bans, and warning labels have helped to protect consumers and companies are focusing more today on social responsibility. Examine why has there been such a relatively high number of these incidences and what companies can do to protect consumers.

    Assignment Guidelines:

 

  • What legal and ethical responsibilities do companies have to their customers?

  • Cite and discuss in detail two cases in which a company endangered customers because of the manufacture or design of their products. How did the company address the issue?

  • What consequences did the companies in the cited cases face and were these consequences warranted? Why or why not?

Compose your findings in a Word document (850–1,100 words), and be sure to cite your sources.

Interviewing and interrogation

You have completed your assessment of the employee and have the required information about the employee. You also have the information about three other predictors you reported in M4 Assignment 1. You have also administered a risk assessment instrument, and the employee has been classified to be at “moderate risk” for assaultive behavior in the next five years.

On the basis of the results of your investigation in the assignment tasks of the previous modules, create a 10- to 12-page report addressing the following:

  • The results of the interview with the employee (a description of your interaction with and the mental status examination of the employee).
  • A review of the employee’s predictors of violence.
  • An analysis of the validity and reliability of the risk assessment instrument for making predictions on violence.
  • The conclusions you arrived at about the employee’s potential for showing violence.
  • Some cautionary statements about the tenuousness of your conclusions, given the low base rate of violence in the employee.

In addition, in your report, identify at least one potential victim of the employee. Make a recommendation for action by the company to protect that victim. Prepare your findings and recommendations in such a way that the employee cannot effectively sue the company for slander. An axiom of law is that negative statements do not constitute slander if they can be supported. Your job is to write the report in such a way (with supportable conclusions) that the company can establish that its actions were prudent.

Cosmic Creation Myths Across Cultures

Select at least two creation myths from two different cultures. For ideas, refer to this week’s readings and the myths section of the Big Myths website http://www.bigmyth.com/  for animated presentations of many creation myths.

Write a 700- to 1,400-word paper about the selected creation myths that answers the following questions:

  • Which world or worlds, such as sky, earth, and underworld, are represented in the myths you chose? What are the elements of these worlds?
  • Describe the creators. Are the creators male or female, and of what significance is gender? Describe what they created, including the steps or cycles of creation. Also, include descriptions of any destroyers or destruction if applicable.
  • Include the role of cosmic occurrences or natural phenomena, such as celestial bodies, floods, rain, wind, and fire.
  • Compare the creators, creations, the steps or cycle of creation, and the cosmic elements of the two myths. What are the similarities and differences?
  • Why do you think cosmic or creation myths are important to a culture? What value do they bring, if any?

Format your citations and references consistent with APA guidelines.
