about the human service professional’s work within communities while addressing issues and problems of individuals. It is important that you as a human service professional familiarize yourself with methods to improve your life as well as the lives of your clients who live in communities. You also read about how the external environment may affect the lives of those you work with and you. Therefore, the human service professional must also become knowledgeable of the social, political, and environmental conditions that affect their clients.

In the reading for this unit and throughout the term, you explored how you as a professional may have an impact on not only the individual client but also on the client’s community. You also read how the human service professional plays multiple roles in the community. Those roles include: advocate, educator, consultant, change agent, facilitator of indigenous support systems, facilitator of indigenous healing systems, and adviser. Because of the numerous roles of the human service professional, a systems perspective in understanding the community as a functioning unit is essential. This reading also emphasizes the importance of mobilizing community resources and influencing policymakers in one’s efforts to promote community change.

Please respond to the following:

  • As a human service professional, how might you identify some of the responsibilities the professional may need in bringing about change in the community?
  • Why is it important for the human service professional to have knowledge of community resources?
  • How might you as the professional develop strategies that will lead to empowerment of individuals within community settings?
  • What are the advantages of the professional educating the client about community resources?

US family sues Cancun resort over ‘poisonous’ alcohol deathPublishedNovember29,2018Abbey Conner was left brain dead after a drink at the fivestar resort. AWisconsinfamilyissuingaluxuryresortinMexicoandabookingssite,claimingtaintedalcoholcausedthedeathoftheir20yearolddaughter.Abbey Conner was found drowned in a pool at an Iberostar hotel in Playa del Carmen last year after consuming allegedly “poisonous” alcohol.Her brother Austin, 22, who also had a drink from the pool bar, was rescued drowning in the shallow waters.Hundreds have since spoken out about dangerous drinks at Mexican resorts.Thewrongfuldeathcivillawsuitclaims that the fivestar Iberostar hotel and its affiliates, including USbased booking website Visit Us, knew the alcohol being served was “tainted, substandard, poisonous, unfit for human consumption.It argues thatAbbey Conner’s death was “tragic, senseless and entirely avoidable”.The Conner family is seeking unspecified damages for physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering caused by the hotel’s negligence.The hotel refused to apologizeor acknowledge any responsibility for the 7 January 2017 incident, the lawsuit claims.Iberostar has not commented on the lawsuit thus far.Ms.Conner’s death prompted the US Department of State to issue a travel advisory last summer regarding tainted alcohol in Mexico.What happened?According to the family, shortly after they arrived at the Hotel Iberostar near Cancun, Mexico, Abbey and Austin decided to relax in the hotel pool.They had drinks at the pool bar, and soon afterwards began experiencing ill effects.There were no lifeguards at the pool, according to the lawsuit, and hotel staff were alerted by another guest that the brother and sister were drowning.Ms.Conner was found face down in the water, foaming at the mouth.The hotel took both siblings to a hospital without telling their parents, the family said.The parents, John Conner and Ginny McGowan, only learned what had happened when they asked hotel staff to call their children’s room to check why they were late for dinner.By the time the parents arrived at the hospital, Abbey was unconscious andon a respirator while Austin was sedated.The family say the hospital demanded a $10,000 (£7,800) deposit and $6,371 payment before Ms Conner could be taken to an intensive care unit, and the hotel refused to help pay.Days later, the young woman was airlifted to the Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.She was declared brain dead and passed away days later onJanuary12th.

I put 2 link of we transfer , where you can see the video, I divided it into 2 links

https://we.tl/t-nqRmto7SLg  fist 5 min 

https://we.tl/t-QpzgbD8b7a  last part 

Chapter 10: Make sure you closely watch the film for this chapter focusing on catharsis (I know there is a problem with the link in the PowerPoint in Part Three. I really apologize, and I’ll try to get it working this week. Instead, go into the “Module” Folder and find the “Video Folder” there. Under Chapter 10, you will see a link to the clip called “Soothing the Savage Beast”. Click it and watch! Again, sorry about the powerpoint links. Still figuring out this crazy Canvas learning management system!).

Although original aggression theories thought that venting your anger could be therapeutic (i.e. cathartic), recent research shows that venting anger can actually make you angrier – at least for some people. For this discussion, think about your own life and how you deal with anger. After watching the video, answer at least THREE of the following questions: 1). Do you under-vent, over-vent, or do you fall somewhere in the middle (and why)? 2). Describe a time when you were really angry, and tell me how you handled that anger. 3). Do you feel catharsis when you vent? In what way? 4). Do you fit more into the Type A or Type B personality, and how might that impact the way you deal with situations. 5). What did you think about the accuracy of the film, and is there research (or anecdotes you know of) that go against what the film proposes? For your follow-up comment, compare your responses to at least one group mates and see if you can help “guide” each other to a healthier way of expressing your anger (if needed!). Try to figure out if they use similar approaches or different. If different, which do you think is better and why?

Discussion Topic #2 – 

(300 words minimum 

Chapter 1 of the text illustrates the importance of going beyond the “person-focused paradigm” of community counseling to one that includes the client’s environment with all its social factors. For this discussion: 

  • Define “community counseling” as discussed beginning on page 9 of the text and include the concepts of community, multicultural competence, social justice, and the healthy development of clients and communities
  • Why is the community counseling model important to mental health professionals?
  • How does the community counseling model tie the services provided by the counselor to the client’s environment?
  • Minimum of 300 word posting with 200 word replies to two classmates
  • Reply 200 word replies
  • Jennifer : Define “community counseling” as discussed beginning on page 9 of the text and include the concepts of community, multicultural competence, social justice, and the healthy development of clients and communities

The community counseling model discussed in this book can be summarized as follows: Community counseling is a comprehensive assisting framework based on multicultural competence and is also aimed at social justice. Because context has such a strong influence on human behavior, community counselors employ tactics that promote the healthy development of both their clients and the communities that support them. We define community in this book as “a group or gathering of people who share common interests and needs” (Paisley, 1996). A revolutionary force definitely has been the focus of the counseling profession in the multi-cultural counselling movement. This force is creating a paradigm shift in which cultural constructs are enlarged to encompass culture respectful and responsive ways of thinking, such as mental health, psychological maturity, development, psychological disorder, and adequate aid solutions. When it comes to social justice, community counselors use the wide-angle lens to examine their customers in context, they have every reason to recognize that their clients require and deserve a fair and equitable community environment. Human development is a process to broaden the choice of people. The expansion of human capacities and functions will help to enlarge people’s choices.

  • Why is the community counseling model important to mental health professionals?

Community counseling is wide-range and diverse, applying guiding and social work ideas in a Community environment. Efficient community advice helps customers address their mental health difficulties and helps prevent such worries from spreading throughout the community.The idea of community counseling is based on the recognition of variety, according to Judith A. Lewis and others. Lewis adds that community advocates must pay particular attention to diversity as communities are varied systems in their essence. By treating the whole of a community, counselors can contribute to a large-scale alleviation of mental health problems. Community advice provides leadership in improving access to mental health care. Community advice continues to increase its reach to address these needs.

  • How does the community counseling model tie the services provided by the counselor to the client’s environment?

Given that individual growth and community development are intricately related, community consultants recognize that their professional obligations encompass both direct service to their customers and the development of health care environments. The function of the consultant therefore involves strategies for personal development and strategies for community development. The consultant utilizes focussed methods across both these categories that meet the requirements and broader strategies affecting the general public of particular persons or organizations.

Nichole 

Community counseling is known as a comprehensive helping framework that is grounded in multicultural competence and oriented toward social justice.  Meaning not only is it multicultural and working with a diverse group of people the main goal is to bring forth social justice or helping others. Examples of this would be opening a safe space where teens in an underprivileged part of town can explore creatively and without fear. Human behavior is powerfully affected by context. Meaning if the person feels that have a safe haven to go to, they are more likely to open up and accept the help in the first place. Community counselors must use strategies that help facilitate the development of both of the clients and the communities that nourish them. This would be an ideal setting for both the client and the therapist alike. The definition of community counseling has many keywords the definition of these include community which is defined as a group or gathering of people who share common interests and need.  multicultural competence which includes a more culturally respectful and responsive ways of thinking towards those of a different background meaning race, age, gender, or ethnicity. Social justice involves promoting access and equity to ensure full participation in the life of a society, particularly for those who have been systematically excluded based on race/ethnicity, gender, age, physical or mental disability, education, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or other characteristics of background or group membership.

I believe community counseling model is very important to mental health professionals because it shows a humane side to what we do in the sense that we may not be fully aware of the diverse population we work with until we put in those situations. It is also important to see how people if different socially diverse backgrounds, socioeconomics groups, age, and gender deal with issues that the counselors may have not had to face before. The community counseling model ties the services provided by the counselor to the client’s environment by following human development and behavior to take place in an environment that have the potential to be nurturing and/or limiting. Meaning that even in the face of stress, the person is treated respectfully and can demonstrate surprising levels of strength by the client.

  1. Read the attached case and analyze it. Provide a brief summary of what you learned and how you would apply what you learned as a manager.


United States Supreme CourtCARNIVAL CRUISE LINES, INC. v. SHUTE(1991)No. 891647Argued: January 15, 1991Decided: April 17, 1991After the respondents Shute, a Washington State couple, purchased passage on a ship owned by petitioner, a Floridabased cruise line, petitioner sent them tickets containing a clause designating courts in Florida as the agreedupon fora for the resolution of disputes. The Shutes boarded the ship in Los Angeles, and, while in international waters off the Mexican coast, Mrs. Shute suffered injuries when she slipped on a deck mat. The Shutes filed suit in a Washington Federal District Court, which granted summary judgment for petitioner. The Court of Appeals reversed, holding, inter alia, that the forumselection clause should not be enforced under The Bremen v. Zapata OffShore Co., 407 U.S. 1 , because it was not “freely bargained for,” and because its enforcement would operate to deprive the Shutes of their day in court in light of evidence indicating that they were physically and financially incapable of pursuing the litigation in Florida.Held:The Court of Appeals erred in refusing to enforce the forumselection clause. Pp. 590597.(a) The Bremen Court’s statement that a freely negotiated forumselection clause, such as the one there at issue, should be given full effect, 407 U.S. at 1213, does not support the Court of Appeals’ determination that a nonnegotiated forum clause in a passage contract is never enforceable simply because it is not the subject of bargaining. Whereas it was entirely reasonable for The Bremen Court to have expected the parties to have negotiated with care in selecting a forum for the resolution of disputes arising from their complicated international agreement, it would be entirely unreasonable to assume that a cruise passenger would or could negotiate the terms of a forum clause in a routine commercial cruise ticket form. Nevertheless, including a reasonable forum clause in such a form contract well may be permissible for several reasons. Because it is not unlikely that a mishap in a cruise could subject a cruise line to litigation in several different fora, the line has a special interest in limiting such fora. Moreover, a clause establishing ex ante the dispute resolution forum has the salutary effect of dispelling confusion as to where suits may be brought and defended, thereby sparing litigants time and expense and conserving judicial resources. Furthermore, it is likely that passengers purchasing tickets[499 U.S. 585, 586]containing a forum clause like the one here at issue benefit in the form of reduced fares reflecting the savings that thecruise line enjoys by limiting the fora in which it may be sued. Pp. 590594.(b) The Court of Appeals’ conclusion that the clause here at issue should not be enforced because the Shutes are incapable of pursuing this litigation in Florida is not justified by The Bremen Court’s statement that “the serious inconvenience of the contractual forum to one or both of the parties might carry greater weight in determining the reasonableness of

the forum clause.” Id., at 17. That statement was made in the context of a hypothetical “agreement between two Americans to resolve their essentially local disputes in a remote alien forum.” Ibid. Here, in contrast, Florida is not such a forum, nor given the location of Mrs. Shute’s accident is this dispute an essentiallylocal one inherently more suited to resolution in Washington than in Florida. In light of these distinctions, and because the Shutes do not claim lack of notice of the forum clause, they have not satisfied the “heavy burden of proof,” ibid. required to set aside the clause on grounds of inconvenience. Pp. 594595.(c) Although forum selection clauses contained in form passage contracts are subject to judicial scrutiny for fundamental fairness, there is no indication that petitioner selected Florida to discourage cruise passengers from pursuing legitimate claims or obtained the Shutes’ accession to the forum clause by fraud or overreaching. P. 595.(d) By its plain language, the forum selection clause at issue does not violate 46 U.S.C. App. 183c, which, inter alia, prohibits a vessel owner from inserting in any contract a provision depriving a claimant of a trial “by court of competent jurisdiction” for loss of life or personal injury resulting from negligence. Pp. 595597.

Help me study for my Psychology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

Answer

1- There were a couple things wrong with the ghostbusters experiment. 1st and foremost its unrealistic. Using electric shock to get results is just ethically wrong. It also seemed as if the “volunteer” is getting paid to participate in the experiment. The researcher also acted in an unscientific manner by flirting with the female participant. If I were doing this study, my hypothesis would be “Positive Reinforcement causes an increase in the ability to use ESP to correctly identify shapes on cards.” My independent variable would be the positive reinforcement because it can be manipulated by the researcher. My dependent variable would be the ESP ability because it is what is being measured. The difference between correlational and experimental is that with correlation, a link exists between the two variables, i.e., when 1 variable increases, the other increases or decreases and vice versa. Whereas with experimental it draws more cause & effect conclusions because it uses random assignment. So, in order to make this study more experimental we would have to use random assignment to make sure everyone has an equal opportunity to be in both groups. Some of the ethical issues with this experiment is it causes pain/harm, and the researcher was also being deceptive. Some ways to solve ethical issues is to simply not conduct experiments that causes pain/discomfort, provide participants with the option of quitting in case of being uncomfortable, getting consent so that way participants know what they are getting into, debriefing participants after the experiments to give them peace of mind and to let them know that their participation was valued and making it a blind or double-blind experiment to reduce the risk of altering results based off intentional or unintentional bias.

.Answer

2- To begin, the video provided demonstrated several factors that were incorrect. First, throughout the ghostbuster’s video, the hypothesis was not stated, leaving the audience to wonder what was being tested. In addition, the study had no control group or clear dependent or independent variables which are tracked. Similarly, the doctor reveals the card to the male participant after each turn he answers incorrectly yet shocks him and does not show him the card when his answer was correct. On a similar note, the doctor tells the female subject all her answers are correct, even when that is false, and never shows her the card. To improve this study to meet scientific standards, there must first be a testable hypothesis. The study should also be free of bias, whether the participant is male or female to keep the results objective. Finally, to meet scientific standards, the study must demonstrate and define measurable independent and dependent variables. Secondly, if I was completing this study, I first would state my hypothesis as such, if awarded with positive reinforcement, individuals will be more likely to continue a study. In terms of defining my variables, I would say the amount of positive reinforcement given to participants would be the independent variable while tracking their choice to stay in the study as the dependent variable. Thirdly, to convert this from a correlational study to an experimental study a few factors must be adjusted and added. A correlational study is one that refers to a non-experimental research method used to study the relationship between two variables using statistical analysis. On the contrary, an experimental study is one that uses random assignment of participants into different groups, experimental or control, to determine the effect the independent variable has on the dependent variable. The control group in the experimental study would be the group of randomly assigned participants that do not receive the treatment, while the experimental group does. In terms of changing the study at hand to an experimental study, the doctor must first use random assignment and determine which group would be labeled experimental versus control. In addition, the doctor must define his hypothesis and determine his dependent and independent variable to measure the effect. Lastly, the video provided contained several ethical issues to be addressed. First, the doctor used electrical shock as a means of punishment when the participant answered “incorrectly”. Next, the doctor lied about both the response of the female participant each time to avoid shocking her, while when the male participant answered correctly, he was still shocked. To correct these ethical issues, I chose to alter the independent variable to positive reinforcement such as praise or reward, rather than use negative reinforcement as physical pain. To resolve the bias the doctor held toward the gender of the participants, it would be beneficial to use a set of rules that the researcher must follow as to when to award or not award the participant.

Help me study for my Business class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

Google Inc is a renowned technology giant; thus, the brief discussion in the sections below presents the company’s literature review. Part of the literature review includes content about its ethics concerning its mission, vision, and goals.

Literature Review

The first literature under review concerns the ventures made by Google. According to Friesike (2014), the distinction between a business incubator and a venture capital firm is that the former is after innovation while the latter is inclined to generate money. Thus, the front end of business incubators is filled with ideas and groundbreaking undertakings in line with the founding company. In the case of a capital venture, the emphasis is on the portfolio of companies offering a better investment window. In the case of Google, it attempts to integrate both approaches (Friesike, 2014). Unlike other tech companies, Google offers uniquely engages with and supports their ventures. For instance, the decision by the company to invest in tens of firms is an indication of the approach deployed by the firm. Also, it is common knowledge that the company openly invests in companies considered direct competitors of Google services and products, which sparks ethical concerns.

Another literature about Google is presented by Thompson (2015), whose interest is in the company’s mission and vision. Based on the article, the reflection of the direction taken by Google is exhibited in both their mission and vision statement. The enormous success attained by Google is attributed to the company’s adherence to its mission and vision statement coined during its founding in the late 90s. Its mission statement defines its business strategies; an example is an approach taken in innovating products. In the same fashion, the company aims for higher achievements, and the motivation is its vision statement which champions new and competitive innovations. The extent to which Google has come thus attributed to its drive to live up to the vision and mission of the company.

Further scope of Google as a company concerning ethics and how their drive to succeed influences them is highlighted in the literature written by Daniel & Palmer (2007). The articles discuss the goals of Google as a company which is to contribute to the organization of the lives of its users. The literature also discusses the foreseeable goals of the company. Based on the literature, the company’s executive reiterates that the decision to gather the personal data of its users has been the foundation of the company’s success and expansions over time. That is to say, the various personal information collected from individuals is made secret and turned into an asset with monetary value. Concerning ethics and the various allegations against the company over time concerning user privacy and personal information, this is a clear ethical concern (Daniel & Palmer, 2007).

Nonetheless, the focus of Google as a company, especially concerning future progress, is to engage user experience, which is built on the personal data collected when the users interact with the platform. Regardless of the ethical concerns related to gathering personal data, the company is inclined towards tailoring its products and services based on personal information. Thus, the company can offer most tailor-made services like telling its user what they intend to do specific day based on the information collected about them, including the ability to foretell the religion likely to be joined by the user. As thus, the literature regards Google as a thoughtful oracle but with no soul.

Risk Management

In this assignment, you will apply the risk management techniques you have learned to a real-life scenario.

Assignment Scenario

Mr. Ashford is a caseworker at the County Human Services Department. One of his clients, Mr. Lainez, is a young man who presents with many issues. He has been in foster care and is about to age out of the program to live on his own. Mr. Ashford will be assisting him with this transition.

In an effort to connect with his young client, Mr. Ashford accepts Mr. Lainez’s invitation of friendship on social media. In addition, he provides his agency email address to Mr. Lainez when he asks if there is not another way to make an appointment rather than making a telephone call and going through a receptionist.

Shortly thereafter, Mr. Lainez experiences several disappointing events. He loses his job, and the young woman he was dating tells him she is no longer interested in seeing him. Additionally, he is struggling to make ends meet, and becomes unable to pay the rent on his first apartment.

At his wits’ end, he makes a vague suicidal threat on Facebook® and sends a desperate request to Mr. Ashford to set up an appointment as soon as possible. Out on calls, Mr. Ashford does not check his email or his Facebook account for several days, missing Mr. Lainez’s cues. His young client is found dead of an overdose of medication he has been prescribed by the department psychiatrist.

Discussion Overview: Building on the Agreement to Mediate you wrote for your online clients, you will now create own personalized Online Opening Statement. Keep in mind that an opening statement is not a random collection of words. There are Key Components of the Opening Statements that must be included (revisit your textbook p.96 -104). Plus, you must consider the online environment: What will you include to tell the parties. For example, Figure 6.1 Sample Opening Statement , p.97 was written for an in-person mediation session and states: “ If you need a break ,let me know. Bathrooms are just across the hall”. An online mediator would say: “ If you need a break ,let me know. We will pause the video call and resume after everyone is back on camera”.

Another consideration, What “ground rules” will you include for your online mediation? For example, all parties must be visible and on camera during the mediation session or audio must be turned off, unless you are speaking, etc. Think about other “ ground rules” to include in your opening statement to ensure a seamless online mediation. Think about grounds rules concerning confidentiality and caucusing, etc in an online environment. Discussion Instructions: The attached document contains several paragraphs for an

Economic, social, and cultural change impacted much of the United States during the decades between Reconstruction and World War I.  As the northeastern United States saw unprecedented growth in industry, immigration, and changes in technology, labor, and business, southerners grappled with losing the war, rebuilding the economy, and making sense of a Confederate past. Advocates of a “New South” called for embracing industrialization and diversifying agriculture while reformers sought to address racial tensions. Did such efforts result in the “New South” becoming a reality or did the southern economy, society, and culture remain mostly the same? In other words, was there significant change in the South during the years between Reconstruction and World War I? Explain why or why not using the sources below to provide evidence for your argument. 

Required Secondary Sources – Use and footnote all secondary sources listed below as you use them in your paper.

  • The American Yawp (Links to an external site.) – Chapters 15, 16, 18, and 20 will be especially useful. Footnote the specific chapters you use. You do not have to use all the chapters, but your essay should demonstrate thorough reading and understanding of the content in the chapters.

You are the director of an outpatient, senior community center, a position that you have held for 6 years. You are comfortable with your role and know your staff well. Recently, your lead registered nurse resigned. Two of your staff, Nancy and Sally, have applied for her position.

Nancy, an older nurse, has been with the organization for 8 years part time. Most of her work experience prior to her hire at the senior community center was in acute care nursing. She performs her job competently and has good interpersonal relationships with the other staff and with patients and physicians. Although her motivation level is adequate for her current job, she has demonstrated little creativity or initiative in helping the center establish a reputation for excellence, nor has she demonstrated specific skills in predicting or planning for the future.

Sally, a nurse in her mid-30s, has been with the organization and the unit for 2 years. She has been a positive driving force behind many of the changes that have occurred. She is an excellent clinician and is highly respected by physicians and staff. The older staff, however, appear to resent her because they feel she attempted too much change early in her employment. Both nurses have baccalaureate degrees and meet all the qualifications for the job. Both nurses can be expected to work at least another 5 years in the new position. There is no precedent for your decision.

You must make a selection. If you do not use seniority as a primary selection criterion, many of the long-term employees may resent both Sally and you, and they may become demotivated. You are aware that Nancy is limited in her futuristic thinking and that the center may not grow and develop under her leadership as it could under that of Sally.

DQ: Identify how your own values will affect your decision. Rank your selection criteria and make a decision about what you will do. Determine the personal, interpersonal, and organizational impact of your decision.

Discussion Protocol. Please observe the following 3 x 3 rule: when writing your weekly discussions: – A minimum of three paragraphs per DQ. Each paragraph should have a minimum of three sentences.

Chapter 3 of the text illustrates the Respectful Counseling Framework, and includes four counseling approaches with a social justice orientation (p. 73).

For this discussion:

  • Briefly describe the Respectful Counseling Framework
  • Discuss two of the approaches with a social justice orientation
  • Indicate some of the characteristics that the two approaches you selected have in common (300 words minimum)

Please reply to the following posts (200 words minimum each reply)

Post 1

The RESPECTFUL approach lays the groundwork for an approach to assessment and counseling that is based on a broad and deep appreciation for multiculturalism, diversity and social context. The RESPECTFUL counseling framework recognizes the multidimensional nature of human development and addresses the need for a comprehensive model of human diversity that has practical utility for the work of mental health professionals. The RESPECTFUL model of assessment and counseling embraces a broad and inclusive definition of the term cultural diversity. The framework consists of 10 factors. These 10 factors are religious/ spiritual identity, economic class background, sexual identity, level of psychological maturity, ethnic/racial identity, chronological/ developmental challenges, various forms of trauma and other threats to one’s sense of well-being, family background and history, unique physica characteristics and location of residence and language differences.

Ratts emphasizes the social justice counselor’s role of advocacy and social activism, stating that ” a socila justice counseling approach uses socual advocacy and activism as a means to address inequitable social, political and economic conditions that impede on the academic, career and personal/social development of individuals, families and communities. A social justice orientation would lead a counselor toward approaching each client with an understanding of the situation in the broadest possible context, helping the client gain this understanding as well and working from a strengths-based perspective. There are four different approaches to this orientation. These approaches are empowerment focused counseling, ecological counseling, feminist counseling and relational-cultural counseling. I will focus on the first two. Empowerment focused counseling is when clients can be more empowered if they learn to recognize the ways they are affected by their environmental contexts. Empowerment involves, first, recognizing that these problems do not stem from a defect within the individual but are instead violations of his/her selfhood. Ecological counseling is ” contextualized help-giving that is dependent on the meaning clients derive from their envrionmental interactions, yielding an improved ecological concordance. Each individual is part of an ecosystem that is the ” sum total of interacting influences operating in a person’s life, including such diverse factors as biological makeup, interpersonal relationships, the physical enviornment and the broader socio-cultural context. The concept of ecological concordance involves a mutually beneficial interaction between person and envrionment.

The two approaches have in common that the individual is taught by their counselors that there are outside factors that is causing them to be less empowering. With the knowledge of these factors, the client will gain empowerment and improve their lives.

Post 2

The Respectful Counseling Framework takes into account cultural diversity and recognizes the multidimensional nature of human development. This framework is made up of 10 factors which includes biological, psychological and environmental characteristics. The Respectful Counseling Framework is addressing cultural distinctions that distinguish people from the same culture based on other characteristics taken into account. This framework helps counselors when working with diverse backgrounds and groups. The framework also emphasizes how important it is for counselors to use various approaches to help in their clients psychological and personal well-being.

One approach with the social justice orientation is the empowerment-focused counseling approach which has the belief that the causes of problems and the solutions are within the client to find. With this approach clients are asked to see the environmental factors that have affected their well-being. The empowerment-focused counseling approach uses a competency-building activity called “empowerment versus disempowerment which emphasizes how clients should see oppression instead of self-blame or mutual support instead of isolation. The approach encourages clients to recognize that their problems do not come from personal deficits but from “violations of selfhood.” The advocacy-oriented counselor competencies highlight the empowerment-focused approach and how to helps clients be effective self-advocates.

The second approach with the social justice orientation I chose is the feminist counseling and therapy approach. The approach takes into account systemic oppression on women. Social and political factors played a key role in initiating this type of oppression which caused women to blame themselves as the problem. The oppression was addressed by consciousness raising groups where women expressed and compared their stories. The feminist counseling and therapy model emphasized how previous approaches developed by empowered White men didn’t take into account social expectations, cultural norms and political structures in women’s lives. A feminist counselor has to also take into consideration competing oppressions and the reality of multiple oppressions.

The two approaches I chose have common themes in that they both emphasize the importance in examining external factors that have affected their well-being such as oppression, racism and sexism. The approaches view the problem as being in the environment and not attributed to the client’s personal characteristics.

Researchers have identified factors that characterize people who manage to adapt to difficult conditions. These factors are interrelated. Support systems help people solve problems, increasing their sense of control, security, and confidence:

1. Successful persons tend to have strong social support systems: The availability of supportive serves as a buffer against the effects of stressful situations.

2. Successful copers tend to have a sense of control over the environment: it is “self-efficacy” or “internal locus of control.” People who cope effectively do so because they believe their actions can have an effect. The sense of control in a situation can be affected by the appraisal of the stressor and the presence or absence of adequate personal and environmental resources.

3. Successful copers have the information and tools needed for effective problem solving: Individuals’ coping success depends, on their ability to solve immediate problems and develop appropriate new behaviors.

4. Successful copers tend to be confident that they can adapt to new situations: The feelings of confidence come from the availability of personal and financial resources and from having coped successfully with similar transitions in the past.

I chose the follow two models of outreach programs because I consider that children are the future, they are the seed of future generations. These outreach programs involve providing professional services to this specific group.

  • Helping Children Cope with Family Disruption.

I think children and young people are a vulnerable population. Knowing that a series of cognitive, affective, behavioral and psychological problems have been identified that are very common in children whose parents have divorced, it should be taken into account that children in these conditions have special needs, so in this outreach program preventive projects have been developed coping skills, implementing services that reflect accurate understanding and demonstrate a genuine respect for the cultural integrity and needs of these children.

  • Outreach to Children Who Witness Domestic Violence.

It is known that the psychological effects in children who witness domestic violence notably affect their emotions and behavior, so these children are at risk of suffering a series of psychological problems, manifestation of aggressive behaviors in problem solving, abusive language, a high degree of anxiety, the tendency to somatize their feelings and express a sense of responsibility for the conflict their parents experience.

This outreach program emphasizes the need for counselors to utilize preventive, educational, and support services promoting the psychological development and well-being of children who have been exposed to domestic violence.

  • Describe the four factors that characterize people who can successfully adapt to difficult conditions

The first factor that researchers had found that characterizes people who successfully adapt to challenging conditions is that successful persons tend to have strong social support systems. When people have partners, family, or friends that provide a supportive relationship, this helps individuals to cope better with the impact of stress, trauma, conflicts, or any problematic situation. A strong support system provides good emotional support allowing clients to receive validation and help. The second factor is that successful copers tend to have a sense of control over the environment. This factor highlights how people who develop coping mechanisms tend to comprehend their actions’ effects on the world. For this, they grow the capacity to exercise control when needed. The third factor is that successful copers have the information and tools needed for effective problem solving. In order to effectively adapt to any possible contingencies, individuals who are successfully copers are able to solve problems, adapt and develop new behaviors due to their knowledge about the specific situation and life skills. The last factor is successful copers tend to be confident that they can adapt to new situations. This factor emphasizes how previous events from the past that the individual has successfully resolved, and have any similarity with a present problem, help build confidence because this is an issue that the individual has faced before and overcome effectively.

  • Discuss two of the models of outreach programs that community counselors can create to serve clients and families undergoing transitions from the text OR other models from specific groups that might be in the process of undergoing transitions, such as members of the LGBTQI community and others (these can be found online or from your own experience

One model of outreach programs that community counselors can create to serve clients undergoing transitions is Helping Adults Cope with Marital Disruption. Divorce and its disturbing influence on a person’s life are an ancient and persistent problem in counseling. People going through divorce or separation are under much stress become their whole dynamic changes. Some of the factors that may be affected are children, finance, emotional support. Because of the disruption that divorce can cause in a person’s mental status and the need to develop new coping skills is considered a high-risk situation. There is a need for counselors to intervene by developing programs to help individuals experiencing this issue. Counselors can help clients who are transitioning from divorce by strengthening a new network of social support. Another model of the outreach program is Outreach to Children Who Witness Domestic Violence. Children who witness domestic violence are considered a vulnerable population, and early intervention is needed due to the psychological effects of this issue. These children are at high risk of developing psychological problems, including aggressive behaviors, abusive language, anxiety, and even a sense of guilt.

Assignment 11: Ethical Dilemmas – What Would You Do?

Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to explore and evaluate ethical issues as they relate to early childhood education.

Directions: Read the following scenarios and respond to the reflective questions pertaining to ethics. Your response should reference the code of ethics statements.

Scenario 1

Ms. K is a veteran teacher who is very popular with her students. She frequently offers students extra help after school, so it’s not uncommon to see students visiting her classroom after school. She has tutored one of her students, “Melissa,” in a variety of subjects over a two year period. During that time, Ms. K has emailed and texted “Melissa’s” cell phone using her personal email address. At first, the exchanges were very general; sometimes unrelated to school work (e.g., asking Melissa about a sick family member, or how she was getting along with friends). Recently, the student began to text her teacher about more personal feelings.

  1. What possible issues/concerns might this scenario raise?
  2. How could this situation become a violation of the law, the “Code” or other school /district policies?
  3. In this situation, what are some potential negative consequences for the teacher, for the students and the school community?
  4. What responses/actions will result in a more positive outcome and/or what proactive measures might be considered?

Scenario 2

Ms. P is a pre-k teacher. During open house she provides parents with her cell phone number to be used only in emergencies. Ms. P has students with special needs so this is often helpful since she doesn’t have a phone in her classroom. One evening, she receives a message from a parent asking if their child had left their sweater at school. Ms. P politely responds that she’d check when she returned to school. The following evening, the same parent sends a message thanking Ms. P for retrieving the child’s sweater and asks if they could meet outside of school for coffee. Ms. P agrees to meet the parent.

  1. What possible issues/concerns might this scenario raise?
  2. How could this situation become a violation of the law, the “Code” or other school /district policies?
  3. In this situation, what are some potential negative consequences for the teacher, for the students and the school community?
  4. What responses/actions will result in a more positive outcome and/or what proactive measures might be considered?

comment about what was the must interesting part of the research and makes
relevant contribution
to my classmate’s research.

Tinetti Mobility Scale

undefined

As a Physical Therapist assistant our main goal is to help the patient get better. But in order to help the patient get better we must be able to assess the conditions they have, this is done with Test and Measurements. With a set of tests and measurements the therapist can accurately find out what the patient’s limitations are and set a goal for the patient to achieve. It is typically done in the beginning of the session with a series of questions asked in order to get an idea of what the patient is struggling with. These tests can include: The Timed up and go test (TUG), the Functional reach test, the Berg balance scale, the Romberg test, and the one that I will speak to you about, the Tinetti mobility scale.

What is the Tinetti mobility scale?

undefined

The Tinetti Mobility Scale is a task performance test used to assess gait, and balance. According to O’Sullivan, Schmitz, and Fulk the tinetti efficiency scale was developed by Tinetti et al as a self-report measure that examines how confident an individual feels to perform ten activities of daily living without falling (219). It is also known as Performance-Oriented Mobility Assessment (POMA), it can indicate the risk of fall for an individual. The Tinetti mobility scale can also target patients who have a diagnosis of Spinal cord injury, CVA, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and our geriatric community. In order to find out if the patient is at risk for falls, we must find out the overall score of the Tinetti scale. The score is done on a three-point scale that ranges from 0-2 with zero representing the most impairment, and two representing the most independent. The individual scores for gait, and balance are combined giving the overall result if the patient is at risk for falls or independent. If the patient scores under 18 then they are at high risk for falls, if the patient scores between 19-23 then they are at moderate risk for falls, and if the patient is over a score of 24 then they are at low risk for falls.

undefined

How to Perform the Tinetti Mobility Scale

undefined

In order to perform the tinetti mobility scale test it requires an armless chair, a stopwatch, and a typical fifthteen feet walkway for the patient to walk. The test has two sections: the first section measures the balance abilities in either a chair or standing position, and the second section assesses balance through gait exercises. In the balance test the patient would be required to get up from the chair and back, it can also include the patient performing a 360 degree rotation while standing up and then sitting down. It would test the patient’s balance in how well they were able to perform the exercise, getting up the chair with a good posture and back down without any stumbling, or if the patient can stand upright while standing up and holding on to nothing. It can provide information to the therapist on how well the patient’s balance is. The second section is assessing balance through gait training. This test will be done using the fifthteen feet walkway. The test would require the patient to get up from the chair, walk fifthteen feet at normal speed, turn around, and walk back at normal speed to sit back on the chair.The therapist would observe the walk and there can determine if the patient is losing balance or is compensating. The Tinetti test usually takes about ten to fifteen minutes to complete. From there the therapist can assess the scores and determine if the patient is at high risk of falls or at low risk of falls. According to the O’Sullivan, Schmitz, and Fulk The tinetti mobility scale is an excellent test-retest reliability is excellent, good interrater reliability , and good concurrent validity (216). The Tinetti mobility scale is very effective and it is one of the oldest clinical balance assessment tools that is used for the elderly patients.

Evaluating Patients with Tinetti Mobility Scale

undefined

Geriatric Patients

undefined

The Tinetti mobility scale can be used to help patients with diagnoses such as Parkinson’s, Multiple sclerosis, Spinal cord injury, Traumatic brain injury, and our geriatric community. The Tinetti scale is most effective to the geriatric community because as we age our body weakens and provides a challenge everyday to just complete daily tasks. As people age and get old, everything in their system starts to slow down from muscle mass, balance, coordination, reflexes, and etc. This makes it more difficult to avoid trips and falls, according to the article “Tinetti mobility test is related to muscle mass and strength in noninstitutionalized elderly people” 30 percent of the community-dwelling people aged sixty-five or older fall each year, and among people aged eighty-five or older, the percentage increases (2016). Falls can have severe consequences, it can cause an injury that can then limit the person long term. The Tinetti mobility scale helps measure balance and gait in the elderly by doing a series of tests. The test alone is short but reliable as a clinical measure tool.

undefined

CVA Patients and the Tinetti Mobility Scale

undefined

The Tinetti mobility scale not only helps patients in the geriatric community it can also help patients that had a CVA. A CVA is also known as cerebrovascular accident or strokecan create damage to the brain from a block in the blood supply. Having a CVA is a serious matter, once recovering from it can create certain limitations that were not there before such as trouble with balance, delayed cognitive skills, and etc. The Tinetti mobility scale is an important factor because patients with a stroke are able to assess the test and provide information such as if the patient has a slow gait, losing balance, are they at risk for falling The test retest for CVA patients can provide an idea of how much they have improved in a set amount of time. The Tinetti mobility scale is considered an essential tool because the reliability and validity of the assessment has had very successful outcomes.

According to the Health Jade team the Tinetti Mobility Scale was published by Mary Tinetti in order to assess gait and balance in older adults, and to also assess perception of balance and activities of daily living and fear of falling (2019). It has been a great indicator of the fall risk of an individual. Over time the Tinetti scale has been used for other diagnoses such as CVA, SCI, MS, and TBI. It is an easy to use assessment test that takes less than thirty minutes with great feedback to determine if the patient is at low risk if falls or at high risk of falls.The reliability of the test is proven to be good that it is chosen specifically to determine the risk of falls for the patient, and the validity is also good because it can provide a consistent score to whether or not the patient really is at low risk for falls or at high risk for falls. The Tinetti mobility scale has become consistent over time and I believe that it will stay consistent because it is easy to use, but provides so much information about the patient whether or not they are able to walk with no risk of falls, or if they are having difficulty in walking that are in high risk for falls.

First, watch the video, “Steve Jobs Commencement Speech (Links to an external site.).” (14:33 mins)

Then, watch the video, “Tim Ferris Interview (Links to an external site.).” (54:00 mins)

Then, consider the following:
“Should you really give it away to get a customer?”

When preparing your response, support your view with facts from the two videos. The first person to respond will pick a side to support. The next person to respond will constructively disagree with the first person to post. Each person thereafter will disagree with the previous person who posted. Try not to repeat ideas already stated. Therefore, you may want to access resources outside of the class materials to support your position.

  • JoshuaG (Mar 6, 2006). Steve Jobs Standford Commencement Speech 2005. Retrieved from
  • Loic Le Meur (Mar 31, 2009). How to start a business by Tim Ferriss
  • Previous person who posted:

After carefully watching the videos provided and my classmate’s responses I can say it is not a good idea to give it away to get a customer. Although it is essential to get clientele when starting a business, it is also important to let everyone know the business way of running a business. People will tend to make the business more serious if they see from the start the business is being strict with how they run the business. The value of the product would not be the same if you start off by giving it away. As the business grows customers and becomes more set it’ll be those products that can make the business bigger. If you give away a product you will create temporary customers that will not come back if the products are not being given away. After watching the Steve Jobs Commencement Speech, he states that “your work is gonna fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work and the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” This quote is the perfect answer on why not to give away just for a product. Eventually, the business being created is made from the start because you are following your heart. By giving it away we are not respecting what we originally stood for. Tim Ferriss also suggests the importance of letting your business run just the way you decided to start it based off.

Typical marketing plans require marketers to assess their own sets of resources, evaluate the marketplace, determine their target market(s), and then create a set of reasonable objectives (goals) with an accompanying set of appropriate strategies and tactics to reach those objectives.

For this assignment, you will create a simplified marketing plan for your own personal and/or professional brand (i.e., “Brand You”).This could in itself be a daunting task, but fortunately, you’ve already completed most of this in previous class assignments.

Simplified Personal/Professional Marketing Plan Elements

1.Plan introduction and duration This is a brief introduction to the purpose of the plan, including the duration of its scope (1 year, 2 years, 3 years, etc.). The duration must be for at least one year.

2.Summary/synthesis of your personal raw materials (This was accomplished as part of your Raw Materials Assessment.) Summarize and synthesize your personal raw materials in a manner that allows a reader to understand the opportunities and challenges that you may face as you construct and develop “Brand You.”

3.Market segment(s) that are to be targeted (This was accomplished if you completed the Product/Audience Match assigned earlier in the semester.) This section should include any relevant portions from your Product/Audience Match Strategy assignment that would apply to this marketing plan:

a.The potential target markets for your personal/professional brand(from “Part 1: List Current Audiences” and “Part 4: List Prospective Audiences”)

b.Why these audiences are being targeted(from “Part 2: Importance of Current Audiences” and “Part 5: Importance of Prospective Audiences”)

c.What the people in those segments desire in a person, employee, boss, etc.; that is, the attributes of the ideal candidate to be courted by that market segment(from “Part 3: What Current Audiences Want from You” and “Part 6: What Prospective Audiences Want from You”)

Note: Even though you will only mention in this document the target segments that are applicable to this marketing plan, you must still include the complete Product/Audience Match Strategy assignment as an Appendix to this assignment.

4.Objectives/goals for your brand(Much of this was accomplished if you completed the Personal Marketing Strategy assigned earlier in the semester.) List at least five clearly identified goals that have a measurable component and a time (deadline) component. Delineate how each goal will be measured to ensure, eventually, that it has (or has not) been accomplished. You can have multiple-level objectives and combine this section with multiple-level strategies from the next section if desired. The key is that all objectives must lead you to your overall goal of winning the hearts of your target audience(s).

Note: Even though you will only mention in this document any objectives/strategies that you feel are relevant to this marketing plan, you must still include the complete Personal Marketing Strategy assignment as an Appendix to this assignment.

5.Strategies and tactics designed to reach the objectives (Much of this was accomplished if you completed the Personal Marketing Strategy assigned earlier in the semester.) Your strategies should have direct-line connections to the objectives they are designed to reach. As mentioned above (in Part 4), you can combine this section with the Objectives or leave it as a separate section. In either case, you must include a one-page figure/chart/image that depicts how the strategies and objectives are connected.

6.Marketing Plan Timeline Create a timeline for your plan where you detail the start and end dates for each strategy and tactic. You must include a one-page figure/chart/image of the timeline. You can be as creative as you like to create the timeline.

Appendix:  This  is  where  you’ll  paste  your  entire  Product/Audience  Match  Strategy  assignment  and  your  entire Personal Marketing Strategy assignment. That’s  all there is to it. Just make sure that it’s clear where one ends and the other one begins. Remember that these each have their own assignment pages here on Canvas with their own instruction pages and rubrics for reference.

I’m trying to learn for my Law class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

Read the attached case. Provide a summary analysis of what you learned and how you would apply it in a management situation. Be sure to analyze how this could apply to a business owner starting a new restuarant that has worked at a previous restaurant with a similar menu.

Case:

MICHAEL CHOW, a.k.a. Mr. Chow, MR. CHOW ENTERPRISES, LTD, a California limited partnership, MC MIAMI ENTERPRISES, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, et al., Plaintiffs Counter Defendants Appellants, v. CHAK YAM CHAU, PHILIPPE MIAMI, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, PHILIPPE WEST COAST LLC, et al., Defendants Counter Claimants Appellees.PER CURIAM[DO NOT PUBLISH] D.C. Docket No. 1:09cv21893WMH Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of FloridaBefore MARCUS and JILL PRYOR, Circuit Judges, and RESTANI,Judge. PER CURIAM:Honorable Jane A. Restani, Judge for the United States Court of International Trade, sitting by designation.This appeal arises from a dispute over Chinese food.Michael Chow (“Chow”) is a chef who has opened a number of Chinese restaurants, all called “Mr Chow”(“Mr Chow”), in Beverly Hills, New York City, and Miami Beach.Chow v. Chak Yam Chau,555 F. App’x 842, 84344(11th Cir. 2014). The restaurants have distinctive menus and decors, and feature as entertainment a display of noodlemaking by the staff.Id.at 844. A twentyfiveyear employee of the New York Mr Chow, Philippe Chow Chau (born Chak Yam Chau), left his employment and, in December of 2005, collaborated with restaurateur Stratis Morfogen (“Morfogen”) to open a Chinese restaurant called “Philippe by Philippe Chow” (“Philippe”) a few blocks away from one of the New York Mr Chow restaurants.Id.New restaurantsin Miami Beach and Beverly Hills, all with the same name, were subsequently opened.Id.The menus, decors, and entertainment at the Philippe restaurants are quite similar to those found at the Mr Chow restaurants.Id.This is our Court’s second encounterwith this litigation. In our previous, unpublished opinion, we addressed various posttrial motions not pertinent to this appeal.SeeChow v. Chak Yam Chau,555 F. App’x 842(11th Cir. 2014).There is no period following the “Mr” in “Mr Chow.”In 2009, Chow and corporations associated with Mr Chow filed suit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Chau, Morfogen, and other individuals and corporations associated with Philippe.Id.The plaintiffs alleged trademark, trade name, and trade dress infringement; false advertising; misappropriation of trade secrets; and unfair competition under federal, state, and common law.Id.Some defendants counterclaimed for defamation and sought to deregister Chow’s trademark in “Mr Chow.”Id.Prior to trial, the district court granted summary judgment to all defendants on Chow’s unfair competition claims underCalifornia Business and Professions Code §§ 1720017210and the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (“FDUTPA”),Fla. Stat. §§ 501.201213.Id.at 844. After trying the case on the remaining claims, but before submitting it to the jury, the district court also granted judgment as a matter of law to the defendants on Chow’s trade secrets misappropriation claim, which was barred by the statute of limitations.Id.at 84445.

The jury returned a verdict for corporate plaintiff TC Ventures, Inc., which operated the New York Mr Chow, against corporate defendant Davé 60 NYC, Inc. (“Davé 60 NYC”), which operated the New York Philippe, on the false advertising and unfair competition by deceptive conduct claims.Id.at 845. It also returned a verdict on those claims in favor of Chow, individually, against Morfogen.Id.Theplaintiffs prevailed on none of their remaining claims for trademark infringement, unfair competition, or conversion. The defendants received verdicts in their favor on the plaintiffs’ remaining FDUTPA claim of unfair or deceptive practices. None of the defendants’ counterclaims against the plaintiffs succeeded.Following the entry of judgment, the prevailing defendants (which were all of the defendants other than Davé 60 NYC and Morfogen)moved for attorney’s fees under FDUTPA, as well as under New York and federal law. In its order granting attorney’s fees and costs under FDUTPA, the district court noted the following “relevant facts”:In a previous motion, prior to the first appeal to this Court, all of the defendants had moved for fees and costs. The district court denied the motion as premature, due to the anticipated appeal. Morfogen and Davé 60 NYC then filed separate motions for fees, which were both denied by the district court.* Plaintiff TC Ventures, Inc., obtained a jury verdict in the amount of $520,451 against Defendant Davé 60 NYC, Inc., as to claims of false advertising under the Lanham Act and common law claims of unfair competition.* Plaintiff Michael Chow was determined to be entitled to $500,000 from Defendant Stratis Morfogen as to claims of false advertising under the Lanham Act and common law claims of unfair competition.* No other Plaintiffs were successful in their claims against any Defendants.* Defendants Philippe Chow, David Lee, Manny Hailey, Costin Dumitrescu, Philippe Miami LLC, and Philippe West Coast LLC were not found liable as to any Plaintiffs’ claims.* Defendants who filed counterclaims were not successful.The district court noted that, under FDUTPA, “the prevailing party, after the exhaustion of all appeals, may receive his or her reasonable attorney’s fees and costs from the nonprevailing party.” The plaintiffs had brought FDUTPA claims against every defendant, and all of the defendants had prevailed on those claims. The district court further noted that “Plaintiffs did not prevail on the majority of their claims and did not prevail at all as to the majority of the Defendants. Indeed, Plaintiffs only prevailed on a narrow issue: false advertising and a commonlaw theory of unfair competition, and only as to Defendants Davé 60 NYC, Inc., and Stratis Morfogen.”Based on its view that “the major thrust of the evidence presented by Plaintiffs was as to the allegedly stolen trade secrets and the alleged infringement as to the Plaintiffs’ name and style of cooking which is at the heart of the FDUTPA claim,” the district court concluded that the prevailing defendants were entitled to attorney’s fees under the statute. Because it determined that the “evidence presented at trial as to false advertising [the claim on which plaintiffs prevailed] was less than onefourth, at most, of the evidence presented, and as to the overall

litigation the question of false advertising was of much less focus than the claimed trade secret theft and alleged infringement,” the district court “determined that the most appropriate approach . . . is to simply reduce theDefendants’ billed hours by onefourth.” On that basis, the district court calculated that the appropriate fees award was $1,160,290.69, which represented threequarters of Defendants’ total attorney’s fees of $1,547,054.25. It further awarded coststotaling $182,992.12 to the prevailing defendants, which was the entire amount the prevailing defendants requested.In addition to the award of taxable costs, FDUTPA allows for the award of nontaxable costs, i.e. those costs that are not taxable under federal law at28 U.S.C. § 1920.SeeFla. Stat. § 501.2105(1)(4).Plaintiffs had also moved for costs against Defendants. The district court decided that approximately 20%, or $8,000, was the appropriate amount of costs to be assessed in favor of Plaintiffs TC Ventures, Inc. and Michael Chow for their successful claims against Defendants Davé 60 NYC and Morfogen. As for Plaintiffs’ costs in defending against Defendants’ counterclaims, the district court decided that most of the costs incurred were unnecessary, and decided that only 10% ($8,150) of the requested award was appropriate.Plaintiffs contest the district court’s decision to award Defendants any attorney’s fees and costs, contending that Defendants do not qualify under FDUTPA as the “prevailing party” in this litigation. Alternatively, even if Defendants were the prevailing party, Plaintiffs argue that the district court failed to consider the relevant equitable factors in exercising its discretion to awardattorney’s fees. Finally, Plaintiffs challenge the district court’s calculation of the attorney’s fees and costs.After careful review, we conclude that the districtcourt correctly decided that Defendants were entitled to attorney’s fees and costs.

Oswestry Low Back Pain Disability Questionnaire

undefined

Pain is something that needs to be taken into account when treating a person for the first time and every time after that. Although everyone has different pain interpretations, it is important to know exactly how the patients being treated feel. Are they getting better? Are they getting worse? Does this minimize the patient’s pain? Due to everyone having a different way to interpret pain there are many different pain and disability questionnaires that better help Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants in understanding exactly what is wrong. One of these different scales used to better understand a patient’s pain is called the Oswestry Low Back Pain Disability Questionnaire. This questionnaire is specific to low back or leg pain and it goes into detail in ten different sections as to how the patient feels during activities such as walking, lifting, or traveling. It is a tool used so that PTs and PTAs can better understand exactly what needs to be worked on and what can be done to alleviate the pain.

undefined

The Oswestry Low Back Pain Disability Questionnaire is different in many cases because it is not a pain scale that solely looks at how much pain a patient is in. This scale takes into account the disability portion which is how this is debilitating a patient’s daily life and the activities they need to get done. Tibbles et al. (2021) states, “Clinicians may often underestimate the impact of illness by missing its influence on a patient’s daily activities”.It is important to have different pain scales out in the world, but it is also important that these pain scales and questionnaires are reliable and valid. In order to ensure this reliability and validity a research team must perform a series of tests and collect the data necessary to make this a “reliable and valid” questionnaire for physicians and anyone necessary to use.

undefined

A research study was done to test the Oswestry where different forms of the questionnaire were created to test its validity and reliability amongst different people. In order to ensure that this questionnaire was valid and reliable the research team needed to make sure that there were combinations of different people in the sample. The sample for the research included people of all ages beginning at 17 and older. The levels of low back pain were from acute to chronic, people from all different workplaces, and a mix of genders. They also provided eight different versions of the ODQ switching the order in sections and the order in which the responses show up. Tibbles et al. (2021) stated that it was noted that people may have answered inappropriately and because they had chosen that they had a moderate pain level in section one that meant that they needed to be moderate as well in all the other sections, which is the result of an inaccurate disability rating. Due to the inaccurate disability ratings the research team found that the severely dependent people were underrepresented. The study did not include anyone in the same size that was extremely dependent due to their disability.

undefined

In the study done by Tibbbles et al. (2021) they noted that there was no significance to the eight different versions of the questionnaire that were made. All eight versions were answered in a way that did not alter any results or bring up any new findings. The thing that the researchers focused on a lot were response dependent answers, meaning that many people were answering according to the amount they put in their previous answers and not only looking at the single section. In the study done by Tibbles et al. (2021) although it does not make a huge difference, it was noted that in order to make sure the answers are consistent the patient can answer the questionnaire more than once on different days. It was also shown in the study done by Tibbles et al. (2021) that patients can also accommodate to their pain means if a patient has a pain that they have been dealing with for 10 plus years that pain may no longer feel deliberating. This allows for the patients that actually have chronic pain to score a lower disability rating only because they are acustim to the pain they have had most of their lives.

undefined

According to the study done by Tibbles et al. (2021), the research showed that this questionnaire had good internal consistency with no response set bias and strongly correlated with RM scores. This is not the only research that has been done to make sure that the ODQ is a good valid scale. According to Aiyegbusi el al. (2017), this tool was performed for both interrater reliability and intrarater reliability. Aiyegbusi et al. (2017) stated, “ODI is a reliable and valid tool for assessing functional disability in low back pain patients”. Although the study that was done by Aiyegbusi et al (2017) was done for a country with a different language and everything had to be translated the ODQ still performed in a reliable way for their non-english speaking patients. Being able to see that the questionnaire performs well even in different parts of the world is a remarkable thing to see and emphasizes even more its importance towards physicians, PTs, PTAs, and the patients that need it.

undefined

The ODQ is a questionnaire that takes a patient’s pain scale and has the ability to pinpoint in what areas of daily activity this is affecting the most. The ten different sections allow for healthcare professionals to understand exactly what could be going on if you have no pain sitting or standing and then the pain becomes present when a patient lifts. It is extremely important that in the healthcare profession all of the pain scales and questionnaires used are ones that are reliable and valid so that the PTs and PTAs can get the most accurate results as possible every time they see their patient. In both the study done by Tibbles et al. (2021) and Aiyegbusi et al. (2017), the ODQ proved to be a reliable and valid test despite the sample sizes, the different order of sections, and the language barriers. The ODQ is a reliable questionnaire that is great at helping PTs and PTAs help their patients and better understand the already complex human body. This is just one more tool that can better help the PTs or PTAs, show their patients how to get better and create a lifestyle where their patients can perform their daily life activities free of low back pain.

must repond to two students discussion with a comment Students response 1;Although Joe Biden won the presidential election, many of the leaders at the state level are still republican. “…Democrats had reason to believe they could flip partisan control in many of these legislative chambers. But, even though Biden won, there was no blue wave.” (Jacobson, 2020). This is likely due to the fact that we just had four years of a republican president. Donald Trump endorsed many republicans for offices. This allowed for many republicans to win at the state levels. I think in the next few years we will see more democrats winning at the state levels, most likely in time for the next election.

I think the redistricting that is coming up will favor the republicans, as they can draw the lines to their favor. Historically, republicans are more aggressive when it comes to things such as packing the court or gerrymandering. Gerrymanders are “districts clearly drawn with the intent of pressing partisan advantage at the expense of other considerations.” (Greenblatt, 2020). Another reason why I think it will favor them is due to the covid-19 pandemic last year delaying the census, which is used to decide districting information. Also, many immigrants were reluctant to put their information in the census for fear that they could be deported. This will make the lines and distribution uneven in many places

student response 2 Even though Biden won the presidency in 2020, state legislatures in that year were predominantly Republican. I think this anomaly occurred as a result of gerrymandering and the influence of the majority parties campaigning to maintain their state legislative majorities. As the article explains with the example of Pennsylvania, Biden was expected to win the state vote for presidency, however, Republicans controlled the state legislature by “nudging a few seats their way” (Jacobson, 2020). Similarly in Wisconsin, Biden won the popular vote in the state but districts were redrawn for votes to maintain the Republican majority in the state legislature. In North Carolina, Trump won the popular vote and Republicans maintained control of state legislatures through redistricting that was unfavorable to the Democratic party (Jacobson, 2020). I think the redistricting process provides the majority parties of state legislatures unfair advantages to remain in control. By redrawing districts that favor their party, they provide themselves better opportunities for reelection that maintains the control within that party. By manipulating voting districts, state legislatures also influence which political parties and what demographic groups will be better represented in the U.S. House. The gerrymandering process also lessens the voting power of constituents that identify with one party but are regrouped into districts that predominantly vote for another party, assigning them with a representative that does not necessarily represent their interests.

For this week’s critique I will be reviewing an article by Yoree Koh, titled “Schools Are Turning Stimulus Funds Into Teacher Bonuses.” The article talks about how some states and school districts are using their stimulus checks to give bonuses to their teachers. Some schools are giving out one time bonuses varying from $1000 to $2000 while others are using the money to increase teachers’ pay up to 3.5%. These schools are doing this to boost the morale of teachers who to worked through the stressful stages of Covid by giving back to them a percentage of their federal grants. Even though, this sounds like a great idea some parents, government officials, and teachers alike aren’t the happiest about this move. They argue that the federal money should instead be invested into the students and revamp the curriculum. The ethical issue presented in this article is should the money be spent to increase the moral of teachers or be invested for the future of the students. Looking at it with consequentialism I believe that it would be best to give the teachers something back for all the work and learning curve of doing online classes and now switching back to in person. If teachers moral is up they’ll feel more appreciated and in turn be at the best of their ability while teaching students. States will also still have the rest of the money to spend however they want which could be used to invest into students.

By Katherine

For this week’s critique, I chose the following article “JPMorgan, Goldman Call Time on Work-From-Home. Their Rivals Are Ready to Pounce”. There is a current battle in Wall Street between the firms due to where their employees are working from. Some firms in the industry said that in the last year and a half where their employees have had to work from home due to the pandemic their numbers have never been higher and have not asked their employees to go back to the office. While other firms say that remote work is not New York, and mentioned how their employees can come up with greater ideas if they are in person and have made work in-person mandatory. In this week’s chapters, it mentioned how trust increases when employees are treated like managers, and the barrier between the two has been minimized. So why are wall street’s CEO forcing their employees back to work, when the data show that they are more sufficient at home? In a post-pandemic world, we are learning how to make our life normal again, but I believe that working remotely is the new normal. There have been many studies in various industries that show that 2020 was their best year, and where were their employees, at home. The ethical dilemma here is that there is a strong barrier between management and employees at wall street and there needs to be a technique and a new system through the deontology ethical theories in which employees are involved in the decision-making of these companies.

Police Brutality & Defunding Police

To further examine the claim of police brutality, I’ve chosen to look at the Human Right’s Watch (Links to an external site.) report. Researchers Julie Ciccolini and Ida Sawyer took an in depth look at the Mott Haven protest in Bronx, NY to bring a further understanding of the troubling condition that has become police violence. This is how they establish their grounds for their claim. The protest that resulted in at least 61 cases of police-inflicted injuries on attendees is used as their typifying example. The researchers use primary sources complied of videos and interviews with protestors to communicate the extremity of event. They describe the protestors as helpless, with police “kettling (Links to an external site.)” them together. The results of the traumatic event are used as the statistics to scope the problem at hand. Though it’s an estimate, the HRW counted “21 incidents of police beating protesters with batons, in many cases while standing atop a parked car; 11 incidents of police officers punching or kicking protesters; 19 incidents of police slamming, tackling, or dragging protesters…” (Ciccolini 2020) and the list goes on. These numbers are evidence for the warrants that their claim is based on. Many are listed to appeal to many different. Sawyer and Ciccolini claim that this particular event demonstrated a risk to public health as police officers ripped face masks off of protestors and herded them together after making arrests. In addition, human and civil rights were violated not only with protestors, but of legal observers and medics responding to help protestors. They explain that the police’s response will cost money paid by taxpayers, but the police will not be held accountable. As they wrap up their claim, Sawyer and Ciccolini demand “comprehensive reforms, structural changes, and a reimagining of public safety” (Ciccolini 2020). By this, they mean, “State and local officials should take meaningful action to reduce the role of police in addressing societal problems, including through significant decreases to the size and budget of the police force.” (Ciccolini 2020).

As they listed a number of warrants for their claim, it’s evident that they are trying to communicate to a number of people. The main two groups that are being targeted are civil and human rights activists because they are most likely to support the claim; otherwise known as preaching to the choir. These groups are the first to react to any violation against human/civic rights. The mention of taxpayer dollars is a dog whistle for American citizens, as they care about where their money is being used. The last two warrants public health rings in medical professionals and government officials, because that is one of the values they focus on.

Though these researchers have laid out their claim effectively and it communicates all of the strongest points of the argument, I notice one problem. There is a lot of mixed information and misunderstanding regarding defunding the police. When America’s masses hear “defund”, they think that means getting rid of police entirely. I feel that this piece laid out the true meaning of what is meant when activists call for defunding the police. That being said, it was used scarcely throughout the report. While it’s important to name the troubling condition, I feel like (in this case at least), it’s also important to name the conclusion.

When marketing a product, brand, or organization, marketers must always consider the need to continuously improve their product offerings in order to elevate, or even just maintain, their position in the marketplace. Such a continuous improvement process starts with understanding where you currently are in the marketplace (i.e., how your product is perceived in comparison to other products) and what is desired by your target audiences. At that point you have thechallenge to choose which goals to set and how you’ll try to reach them.If you’ve completed the assignments thus far, you’ve already evaluated Product You with your Raw Materials Assessment. You also have assessed your target audiences with theProduct/Audience Match Strategy. Now it’s time to set strategic goals and contemplate the actions to reach those goals.Setting goals is a difficult process, mainly because there are so many options available to you. Your personal and professional branding options are not limited to a mere fork in the road with two choices (à la Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken”). It’s more like hundreds (or even thousands) of choices if you reallyopenyour thinking about what your future could hold.Thus, this assignment will require some degree of selfreflection to determine where you would like to move your personal brand and/or professional brand over the next one to five years.

SelfReflection, Objectives, and StrategiesThe best way to start this goalsettingprocess is to consider the values you assessed in your Raw Materials Inventory. If your aspirations for your personal brand and professional brand are developed with your values in mind, you’ll be more likely to feel motivated to work to achieve them, and you’ll be more likely to be satisfied when those goals are reached.The next step is to consider how you would like to be perceived by others as you develop your brand. What would you like people to think about you a year from now? Two years from now? Five or ten years from now? What type of brand would you like to develop? As you consider these questions, keep in mind the idea that you want to change not only the “perception” of your brand, but also the underlying “reality” of that brand. For example, if you want to be perceived as being an expert in mobile marketing, then develop your knowledge and skills pertaining to mobile marketing and then market that expertise.Alwaysremember that the best way to be perceived as an expert in a particular area is to truly become an expert in that area.Once you start to have general ideas or goals of what you want for your brand, set specific objectives with those ideas in mind. Remember to use the SMART method (as explained in one of the assigned videos for this module) to set useful objectives.Finally, list some strategies, tactics, or actions that will help you reach your objectives. The more descriptive you are when listing the strategies (as well as the objectives), the more likely you’ll be to complete them.

2Specific Assignment ElementsAfter you have completed the above steps, create a document as follows:

1.Cover Page:Name, ID, Major, Minor, Certificate(s), AssignmentTitle

2.Introduction:Discuss the purpose for having a personal marketingstrategy.

3.General Branding Goals:Discuss your brand aspirations for one, two, five and/or ten years from now. Describe how you will want people to perceive you.

Read the attached two articles, “Is Islamic finance at tipping point?” and “Islamic banking rises on oil wealth, drawing non-Muslims”.

Discuss the following questions.

  1. What are unique features of “SUKUK” compared to other asset-back securities? How does the “SUKUK” have an effect on the Islamic domestic economy?
  2. What do you think of the impact of Islam banking on US economy and value of US dollars?
  3. What do you think of the impact of Islam banking on global financial markets?

Once a topic is posted, you will have two weeks to make at least two postings, one response to the discussion topic, and one or more replies to your classmates’ postings later on.

By Dariana

What are unique features of “SUKUK” compared to other asset-back securities? How does the “SUKUK” have an effect on the Islamic domestic economy?
There are unique features that are associated with the SUKUK. For instance, they are partial ownership of the assets between the customers and banks. Additionally, the clients are allowed to appreciate the returns that have accumulated from the trading that they participate in. The banks offer the customers bondholders at a fixed rate of investment and make sure that the principle is returned at the maturity of the bond, but the investors are not given ownership. When the customers get the SUKUK, the profits are shared from the normal operations of the bank. Additionally, the SUKUK operates under the confines of religious guidelines that do not entail weapons, gambling, and alcohol.
What do you think of the impact of Islam banking on the US economy and the value of US dollars?
Islamic banking does not allow interest, which is an element that is unique from traditional banking, where customers are charged interest for the deposits that they make. This has played an essential role in the economic growth of the Islamic people in the US. The people are given loans under the religious rules of Islam, which boosts their economy. Therefore, we can conclude that Islamic banking has played a significant role in the distribution of wealth in the United States. Interest-free banking encourages individuals to borrow and invest in an economy.
What do you think of the impact of Islam banking on global financial markets?
There are several effects of Islamic banking on the global financial markets. For example, it has a positive influence on economic growth in different aspects, such as GDP per growth capital. This explains why Islamic banking is growing at a very fast rate in various economies. Islamic banking has created a forum in which IMF is able to remember certain countries and ensure that they get financial support. Additionally, Islamic banking has helped in formulating an advisory group that has played a significant role in setting the standards of procedure. Thus, Islamic banking has helped in creating diversified options in the financial markets and assisted in stabilizing the marketplace.

Hello class,

Sukuk are financial certificates structured primarily to comply with Islam’s prohibition on charging or paying interest. The fundamentals of Islamic finance require that no interest be involved in transactions, that there be no contractual deficiencies. This means that all contractual arrangements are transparent, clear to all parties, without unfair or punitive clauses and with adequate alignment of interests and no unethical activity is involved. The Islamic finance industry continues to be highly fragmented with 500 financial institutions proximally, for example retail banks, investment banks and asset managers, offering Islamic finance products in more than 80 countries. Few Islamic asset managers have a global mandate, and those that do generally have the ability to offer only one product niche. In practical terms, these fundamentals mean that sukuk differ from conventional bonds in very important ways.

Product offerings in Islamic finance have been developing rapidly, but until the emergence of the sak they were specifically limited to stocks and real estate. However, the emergence of private banking investors in the Muslim and non-Muslim world requires sophisticated marketing and expanding the investment universe. There are, therefore, certain market gaps for Shariah compliant fixed income products that asset managers with a strong international reputation in managing retail funds and experience in managing Shariah compliant funds can actually satisfy.

As explained in the PDF reading “Matching the Product with the Audience When Marketing Yourself,” it’s critical to understand your product (i.e., your skills, attributes, personality, core values, etc.) and to determine and understand your target audiences (i.e., potential employers, colleagues, customers, career gatekeepers, etc.).For this assignment, you’ll work to outline your potential target audiences, determine what those audiences desire, and then decide how you’ll match your product with your target audiences. Using either a paragraph, outline, or table format, do the following:

1.List Current Audiences.List various audiences (at least 8) to whom you currently market yourself on a daily, weekly, or other periodic basis. These might include potential employers, current employers, friends, family, teachers, various societal segments, social groups, customers, colleagues, employees, store personnel,vendors/suppliers, social media audiences, etc. Don’t forget that these audiences might be facetoface, online, over the phone, etc. For each audience, be extremely specific as to who this audience is. Don’tjustsay “store employees” when you can say “the early morning employees at the Starbucks thatI go to every weekday.” Don’t just say “my coworkers” when you can say “my coworkers Cristina, Derek, and Victoria who work in the cubicles next to mine.”

2.Importance of Current Audiences.For each of the 8+ current audiences, provide some insights as to why each particular audience might be important to you in your marketing yourself efforts. How can impressing each audiencehelpyou?

3.What Current Audiences Want From You.Finally, for each of the 8+ current audiences you listed, write down at least three characteristics (features, attributes, skills, traits, values, etc.) that they would desire in a person such as you. Although there may be some similar traits or characteristics across the audiences you listed, each audience likely will desire some unique characteristics aswell.

4.List Prospective Audiences.Your next step is to add at least three new “prospective” target audiences to whom you would like to market yourself in the near or distant future. Again, they can be potential employers in a particular industry, friends, social groups, customers, fans, readers, etc.While it’s good to be specific as to the industry, type of people, etc.,youdon’t have to be as specific as you were in Step 1 because you may not know the details of these audiences yet.

5.Importance of Prospective Audiences.As you did in Step 2 with your “current” audiences, for each of the 3+ “prospective” audiences, provide some insights as to why eachparticular audience might be important to you in your future marketing yourself efforts. How can impressing each audiencehelp you?

6.What Prospective Audiences Want From You.For each of the 3+ “prospective” target audiences, write down at least three characteristics (features, attributes, skills, traits, values, etc.) that they would desire in a person such as you. Because you may not really knowtheseaudiences very well, you may end up estimating this section more than the other ones. Nevertheless, consider what characteristics would be important to each audience.

7.Product/Audience Match.Now consider how well you’re matching your Product You with the desired attributes of the (at least 8) current audiences andthe (at least 3) prospective audiences that you listed. Discuss the matches as well as the discrepancies (the instancesin which you don’tmatch)

.8.Changing Product You.Discuss what you can do to have a better match between your various target audiences and the product (set of attributes, traits, etc.) that you’re offering. How can you change your Product You as well as your Personal/Professional Brand to better market yourself to these various audiences? Thissection consists of a set of selfimprovementrecommendations.

Assignment Sections

1.Cover Page: Name, ID, Major, Minor, Certificate(s), AssignmentTitle

2.Introduction: Discuss the purpose for a Product/AudienceMatch.

3.Product/Audience Match Analysis: This is where you’ll put the analysis from theeight stepsabove.

4.Synthesis and Summary: Discuss what you learned from this exercise. What did you learn about target marketing? What did you learn about your own audiences? What did you learn about yourself? Synthesize your learning from the various parts of the assignment and create a summarythat you can review in thefuture.Assignment Formatting Submit as a PDF file upload.

When marketing a product, brand, or organization, marketers must always consider the need to continuously improve their product offerings in order to elevate, or even just maintain, their position in the marketplace. Such a continuous improvement process starts with understanding where you currently are in the marketplace (i.e., how your product is perceived in comparison to other products) and what is desired by your target audiences. At that point you have thechallenge to choose which goals to set and how you’ll try to reach them.

If you’ve completed the assignments thus far, you’ve already evaluated Product You with your Raw Materials Assessment. You also have assessed your target audiences with theProduct/Audience Match Strategy. Now it’s time to set strategic goals and contemplate the actions to reach those goals.

Setting goals is a difficult process, mainly because there are so many options available to you. Your personal and professional branding options are not limited to a mere fork in the road with two choices (à la Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken”). It’s more like hundreds (or even thousands) of choices if you reallyopenyour thinking about what your future could hold.Thus, this assignment will require some degree of self-reflection to determine where you would like to move your personal brand and/or professional brand over the next one to five years.

Self-Reflection, Objectives, and Strategies

The best way to start this goal-settingprocess is to consider the values you assessed in your Raw Materials Inventory. If your aspirations for your personal brand and professional brand are developed with your values in mind, you’ll be more likely to feel motivated to work to achieve them, and you’ll be more likely to be satisfied when those goals are reached.

The next step is to consider how you would like to be perceived by others as you develop your brand. What would you like people to think about you a year from now? Two years from now? Five or ten years from now? What type of brand would you like to develop? As you consider these questions, keep in mind the idea that you want to change not only the “perception” of your brand, but also the underlying “reality” of that brand. For example, if you want to be perceived as being an expert in mobile marketing, then develop your knowledge and skills pertaining to mobile marketing and then market that expertise.Alwaysremember that the best way to be perceived as an expert in a particular area is to truly become an expert in that area.

Once you start to have general ideas or goals of what you want for your brand, set specific objectives with those ideas in mind. Remember to use the SMART method (as explained in one of the assigned videos for this module) to set useful objectives.

Finally, list some strategies, tactics, or actions that will help you reach your objectives. The more descriptive you are when listing the strategies (as well as the objectives), the more likely you’ll be to complete them.

Please show your work and explain your answers.

1. Tacitus can choose either a safe or a risky project. To keep things simple, let’s say either project costs $100. A safe project yields $110 with certainty, while a risky project is equally likely to yield $200or zero. Tacitus needs financing for 50 percent of the cost of his project. Lenders cannot observe his choice of project. Everyone is risk neutral, and the risk-free rate is 4%.

a. If Tacitus were to sell $50 worth of bonds with face value equal to $52, in which project would he invest? Justify your answer. How much would bondholders get paid, on average?

b. How much face value would Tacitusneed to offer lenders in order to sell $50 worth of bonds?

c. Is Tacitus willing to offer the face value required to sell bonds? Explain.

d. Is Tacitus willing to finance a project by selling shares? Are savers willing to purchase his shares? Does financing with equity yield an efficient equilibrium?

2. Pompeia wants to finance her education, plus buy a home. She needs to borrow $400,000, and the risk free rate is 5%. She can try to obtain financing by selling either debt or equity.Pompeia’sjob pays a salary of $60,000 per year. If she works hard, she has a 50 percent chance of getting a promotion and an increase in her salary to $140,000. If Pompeia devotes minimal effort to her job, her salary will remain at $60,000. Pompeia’sdisutility of working hard is $36,000. Everyone is risk neutral, and all the surplus goes to Pompeia. Assume asymmetric information.

a. How much is Pompeia’s annual cost of funds?

b. Hard work generates how much surplus? Explain.

c. In an equity sale, Pompeia must try to sell at least a 1/5share. Why?

d. If savers were to accept a 1/5 share, would Pompeiawork hard? Show your computations. How big a share do savers require?

e. In equilibrium, does she obtain financing by using debt or by using equity? Show your computations. Is the equilibrium efficient?

Jim Rohn once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” In consideration of this if you are considering becoming an entrepreneur, you will want to surround yourself with other entrepreneurs and learn from them.

For this assignment you must select one of the two activities (interview or report). The assignment should be at least 5 paragraphs long with at least three sentences per paragraph. Any external resources should be appropriately cited.

  1. Interview: Interview an entrepreneur you may know and provide a written summary of the interview. If you are conducting an interview, along with the summary provide the questions you asked (you must ask at least 5 questions). You may find this LiveCareer article on entrepreneur informational interviews (Links to an external site.). Also, identify the entrepreneur’s name, the name of their primary business(es) and industry. Embed a picture of the entrepreneur with your post (if possible).

Questions You Might Ask an Entrepreneur

  • How did you get your idea or concept for your business?
  • What’s your company’s goals?
  • What’s unique about your business?
  • How do you advertise your business/product/services?
  • To what do you attribute your success?
  • What are your responsibilities as a business owner?
  • What drives you to keep going when it gets really tough?
  • What do you look for in an employee?
  • What’s your advice to someone just starting out?
  1. Report: Provide a short report of a successful entrepreneur (ie Bill Gates, J. K. Rowling, Gloria Estefan, LeBron James, Oprah Winfrey, Jack Ma, Betro Perez etc.). If you are providing the short report of a successful entrepreneur, try not to duplicate reports from other students who have already posted. Give us a glimpse of their journey to success and identify what are the key traits that you feel contributed to their success. Identify situations where they have failed and their response to those failures. Also, review the questions from the interview option of those assignment as they might be good questions to answer within your report. Refrain from just summarizing one article. The reader should get a sense of where the entrepreneur came from and how they got to where they are now. Therefore, if using this option you must include at least three (3) resources. Embed a picture of the entrepreneur with your post.

Refrain from attaching documents to the discussion; your assignment should be typed into the Rich Content Editor/discussion text field. To avoid technical difficulties, prepare your assignment on Notepad or Google Docs so that your work is saved frequently. Once finished, you can copy/paste your writing into the text field of this discussion forum.

Community resources include community collaborations, which are self-help organizations. Self-help groups provide an environment in which clients can have free and open discussions on topics of common interest to others; they also turn problems or needs into resources, making help more effective.

The “helper-therapy” principle is defined as an explanation of why self-help groups are successful. This author Skovholt (1974) analyzed the benefits of “helper therapy”, came to the conclusion, and pointed out that, although receiving help is beneficial, providing help is even more so.

Skovholt (1974) described the benefits that people in self-help groups typically experience from helping others. The helper does the following: 1. Feel a higher level of interpersonal competence as a result of having an impact on someone else’s life. 2. Feel a sense of equality in giving and receiving between him or her and others. 3. Receive learning valuable custom that comes from working with a helper. 4. You get social approval from the people you help.

Another author Gartner and Riesssman (1984) identified the additional benefits: 1. The helper becomes less dependent. 2. By dealing with the problem of another person who has a similar problem, the helper has the opportunity to observe his problem from a distance. 3. The helper gains a feeling of social utility by playing the helper role.

I believe that the best example of a Self-help group is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), it is a worldwide organization designed to help former alcoholics support each other during their recovery journey while maintaining sobriety. People who are sober longer help others to stay sober too, which makes them empowered and continue in their healing process, it is like a chain.

Individuals who attend AA groups are committed to stop abusing alcohol and remain sober. The meetings offer a multitude of ways to support ongoing recovery, like an effective 12-step program designed to treat alcoholism.

Define the Helper-Therapy principle as described on pages 192-193

The “helper-therapy” theory explains why self-help groups are successful. According to the principle, when one person helps another, the helper may benefit. Skovholt (1974) identified the following benefits that members of self-help organizations typically enjoy when they aid others. That is, an excellent assistant will frequently accomplish the following:

1. Has a greater sense of interpersonal competency as a result of the impact they have on the lives of others.

2. Has an equal feeling of giving and taking between himself/herself and others.

3. Receives excellent personalized learning when assisting a helpee

4. Receives social approval from those he or she assists.

Give an example of a self-help group with which you are familiar and describe how the Helper-Therapy principle works for that group

Alcoholic Anonymous is a self-help organization that I am familiar with. To varying degrees, this self-help organization addresses aspects of empowerment. As a result, it enhances the empowerment of people who are at risk of or are currently experiencing mental health problems. The motivation and ability of clients to help themselves and others who face comparable dangers to their psychological well-being is central to the empowerment process. According to Riessman (1985), when people help themselves, they feel empowered; they have control over some part of their lives. Empowerment multiplies energy, motivation, and help—giving power that extends beyond helping oneself or accepting aid. Furthermore, this self-help-induced empowerment may have significant political implications because, as people are empowered to deal with some aspects of their lives competently, the skills and positive feelings they acquire may spread contagiously and empower them to deal with other aspects of their lives. The helper treatment principle (HTP) is the belief that when helpers help another sufferer, they help themselves. The HTP is represented in the declared aim of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). The basic goal of Alcoholics Anonymous is to stay sober and help other alcoholics attain sobriety. The renowned 12th Step of the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous exhorts the alcoholic to help others who are suffering from the same affliction. Helping other alcoholics keeps the alcoholic helper on the right track.

Another SPOILER-oriented discussion question, so make sure to read the slides first! Recall the PowerPoint slide looking at anonymity and deindividuation. I asked you the following question in that slide: “If you could do anything humanly possible with complete assurance that you would not and could not be detected or held responsible, what would you do? Note: diving to the bottom of the ocean or flying without aid of equipment doesn’t count, as they aren’t humanly possible! List 3 things you would do. 1. _____, 2. _____, 3. ______.”

1). I’d like you to share your answers with your group (But only if you are willing to share that information, of course! Otherwise, you can label your answers as non-normative, neutral, pro-social, or antisocial if you don’t want to reveal your actual answers, though this is less fun!). 2). If you listed an antisocial behavior among those three, tell me what prevents you from actually performing that antisocial action? Research, after all, indicates that college students and convicts answer in much the same way, so why are you free and they are in prison? 3). If you have a pro-social behavior listed, why would you want to do this action anonymously? What do you get out of being anonymous about something that is pro-social in nature? 4). Finally, discuss one of your actions in light of at least one of the elements found in the deindividuation section of your groups chapter (heightened arousal, attentional cues, accountability cues, or benefits of deindividuation). Make sure to DEFINE that characteristic before applying it to your list item. For your follow-up comment, look at your other group members’ responses – did they label a behavior as pro-social that you think is more antisocial (or vice versa)? Argue for why your interpretation may be better (or defend your interpretation against the opinions of others!).

In reviewing the cases, you will write a minimum 6 page, maximum 10 page, paper where you implement an Ethical Decision Making Model. It is suggested that you use the model offered by Forester-Miller and Davis (1996) as that is the one that has been endorsed by the American Counseling Association. This can be found in the resources section of the course. You can also review other decision making models in the textbook, notes, and in the current counseling literature. In this 7-step model, discuss what actions you would take as you proceed through the steps (FYI: in step 3, be sure to find two referred articles from the counseling literature that address the case’s topics and what these sources conclude). Throughout the paper, be sure to document and defend your courses of action and your final conclusions. An excellent paper should have an introduction, a format that follows the seven headers suggested by the ethical Decision Making Model, a conclusion and a reference page.

The first document is a guide to the ethical decision making model. You must follow this model in your paper. The Scoring Rubric tells you exactly what sections to have in the paper and what to include in each section. Adherence to this rubric wlll ensure that you do the paper propertly. You must complete the rubric as a self assessment and upload with your paper. This will help to ensure that you have covered all aspects of the paper. When the professor grades the paper, she will utilize the second column for scoring. Also posted above is a document with APA style guidelines. These guidelines refer the reference section of your paper. You must have the references in APA style. There is also a video in the resource section of your class that details APA style. Finally, the rubric that will be used on Taskstream to grade your assignment is posted. Remember, you must submit your paper to Taskstream as well submission in the course.

Rehabilitation Counseling -Ethical Issue–Study #4

Jeff, a 31-year old burn victim, generally qualifies for VR services. Despite multiple surgeries, he is living with a significant facial disfigurement. He has searched diligently, but unsuccessfully, for employment. He is married with two elementary school-aged children. Various financial benefits are nearly exhausted, and Jeff is desperate for a job/career. Prior work experience and diagnostic testing indicate a strong aptitude for computer technology,but it has been six years since he worked. He has struggled so hard in the rehabilitation process to this point and he has such a great attitude that you feel compelled to help him. A few slots remain open in a well-respected technical school’s sequence of classes that will qualify him for a job in high demand in the community. The diagnosis of some mental health problem (i.e. anxiety disorder or depressive disorder, nos) on his score sheetwould place him high enough on the list for services. Although the client’s extended period of life stressors, reported and observed depressive symptoms could support an additional mental health diagnosis, you wonder if it will help solve the client’s current employment/financial problems or create new ones for him in the future. As you considerJeff’ssituation, you realize that you have come upon an ethical dilemma. Namely, will providing this diagnosis be viewed as doing all I can to assist in the placement of clients in available positions that are consistent with the interest, culture, and the welfare of clients and employers or shall I refrain from making and/or reporting a diagnosis that could potentially cause harm to client in the future. Although you initially consult the CRCC and ACA code of ethics, it doesn’t clearly refer to Jeff’s situation. After careful deliberation, you decide to implement an ethical decision-making model to help you in deciding what to do in this situation.

Managing Boundaries in the Helping Process

Managing boundaries is an everyday reality faced by human service professionals, particularly those who live and practice in small communities. Helpers who work in rural communities may have greater challenges in dealing with multiple relationships than those who work in urban areas.

Assignment Scenarios

Scenario 1

A human service professional discovers that all of her bank accounts are at the local bank where a client works as a teller. This client has access to the human service professional’s financial information and may be able to ascertain who the human service professional’s other clients are in town when checks are deposited.

Scenario 2

A human service professional sees one of his clients at the local grocery store. The client is with one or more other persons. The human service professional, who is mindful of confidentiality, must decide how to respond. If he doesn’t acknowledge the client, will the client feel snubbed? On the other hand, what if the human service professional approaches the client to say hello and the client doesn’t want others to know that he or she is working with the human service professional?

Scenario 3

A human service professional has been invited to a dinner party hosted by a friend. She is not aware of the fact that the friend’s son is dating one of her new clients, who also attends the party. Upon seeing her client at her friend’s party, the human service professional must decide how to respond. This scenario can be taken in a number of directions. For example, what if the client has concerns with the human service professional’s friend because the son constantly complains about him/her? What if the client identifies as being gay and is romantically involved with the friend’s son, but his parent (the human service professional’s friend) does not know that he is gay?

Scenario 4

A former client wants to become “friends” with you on social media. You understand the importance of ethical practice and attempt to avoid blurred boundaries, dual relationships, breaks in confidentiality, and privacy issues. You mistakenly add this former client to your “friends” list and are unsure how to proceed.

Assignment Directions

For this assignment you will discuss each scenario in terms of managing the boundaries of the helping process.

Please be sure to address all of the following in your assignment:

  • Discuss the importance of following ethical guidelines in human service practice.
  • For each of the four scenarios above:
    • Identify the ethical problem.
    • List the NOHS Ethical Standard that aligns with the ethical problem.
    • Develop a strategy to resolve the ethical problem.

As explained in the reading “Start the Marketing Yourself Process by Assessing Your RawMaterials,” a thorough assessment of your personal raw materials will be necessary for you tobegin the marketing yourself process.

Step 1For this assignment, you will need to conduct an evaluation of your own personal raw materials with respect to the following six categories (each of which was explained in the assigned reading and videos):

1.Strengths (or what you’re already goodat)2.Potential Strengths (or what you think you could possibly be good at with practice)3.Faults or BadHabits4.Interests, Desires, Passions (or what motivatesyou)5.Your“Personality”6.Core Values (or what’s important toyou)


Step 2After conducting your selfassessment, write up your results using the following guide:

1.CoverPageName, Panther ID, Major, Minor, Certificate(s), Assignment Title

2.IntroductionDiscuss the purpose for your raw materials selfassessment.

3.RawMaterialsFor each of the six categories, please explain the following:a.How did you conduct your selfassessment for that particular raw materials category? Use at least one online assessmentfor the Strengths category and at least one online assessment for the Personality category. You may use other online assessments for other categories if you wish. For all categories, you should seek the feedback of your family, friends, coworkers, supervisors, and/or employees, etc. in order to gain knowledge from a different perspective. Explain why you used the various assessments and/or sources that youused.b.What are your resulting findings? In other words, what are yourstrengths?…your potential strengths? …your faults or bad habits? Etc. Be sure to describe each trait or aspect (just listing a few adjectives is not “A” or “B” work). Be specific and detailed in describing your findings

c.What insights about yourself did you learn from the selfassessment for each raw materials category? What was expected and what was unexpected? Why? How did you feel about the insights of the other people you consulted? Are you coming across as having different raw materials than you think you possess? Are you portraying your raw materials as you desire? Also, what do you think about any discrepancies between the feedback that you received from other people and from the onlinetools?You should have at least one paragraph for each of these three parts above (ac) for each one of the six categories.

4.Summary &Synthesis(a)Provide an overall summary of your raw materials andthen(b)(this is very important) synthesize the results for all thecategories.Consider the balance between the positives and the negatives. Consider how certain traits or attributes might complement or might compete with others. Consider whether certain traits (either initially seen as positive or negative) might coincide with or perhaps might conflict with your discovery of your core values. Speculate on how the synergies or lack of synergies between raw materials categories might help and/or hurt your abilities to develop your personal/professional brand and market yourself. This synthesis and summary section is a critical element in tying all of your assessment work together, and will help you drive your “marketing yourself” plans as you move forward. Be sure to put significant effort into this section.

Assignment Formatting

Drucilla Poitier: 

“Teachers play several important roles concerning standardized testing. These include preparing students for the test, administering the test, and then using scores in various ways.” (Page 312)

“Classroom-based assessment has the distinction of immediately informing teachers and students, as well as parents, of student performance on an ongoing basis. Unlike test scores with delayed reporting and derived scores whose interpretation is often complex and represents a one-time snapshot of performance, alternative assessment is more directly useful to all stakeholders.” (Page 2)

Hello Class,

The readings this week on assessment and standardized testing is a big thing. I do understand that we must use them to get a baseline and measure where our students are. But I also feel that they have become the focus of teaching. Standardized testing is something I feel should be done away with and we find some other mean or measures for students. High-stakes testing is widely believed to be the force behind educational reform and, presumably, resulting quality education. Though policy makers and the public judge the impact of educational reform efforts by comparing changes in test scores over time, testing experts question the use of high stakes testing as the public benchmark of educational quality (Linn 2000). These high-stake testing have a greater effect of low income and minority students. In fact, socioeconomic status accounts for most of the variance in test scores from one student to the next. Recently in a new report here on Florida, the governor stated that lawmakers will consider a proposal during the next legislative session to end standardized testing in Florida’s public schools. DeSantis said he wants to eliminate the exams and move to a different way of evaluating students. It’s being described as a progress monitoring approach so that assessment occurs throughout the year. The idea here is that educators have access to the data from that assessment more readily, and they can implement interventions to respond to student’s needs. I heavily agree with moving forward in doing away with the “high-stake” testing. In a multicultural society one crucial question is: Are standardized tests biased against certain social class, racial, or ethnic groups? This question is much more complicated than it seems because bias has a variety of meanings. An everyday meaning of bias often involves the fairness of using standardized test results to predict potential performance of disadvantaged students who have previously had few educational resources.

“Preinstructional decisions are needed to set learning goals , select appropriate content and instructional activities, differentiate instruction, and prepare instructional materials”  (Burden & Byrd chapter 11 pg 287)

When looking over the material given this week, the most interesting pieces of information came from this section on data driven decision making as it pertains to how prepared a teacher might or might not be in their lessons and how that could affect their students. Data driven decision making is based on the fact of teachers using many sources of information to make decisions on planning, teaching, and assessing. When I’ve been taught in other education courses about lesson planning never once did I ever think to do preliminary research on topics and find ways in which the information can be properly administered to my students. I always thought the trial and error would come after the first lesson and I could fix and go from that point. 

As I continued to read more into this topic I found that how much is affected by the act of preplanning. When the proper planning is done students will always get more information and education out of each lesson 100% of the time. Figure 1.1 of this chapter really helps me understand the steps to make a proper lesson and how to be successful in each of my ideas that I’ll have for my future students. I better understand the relationships between how instruction and assessment go hand in hand with one another. 

Going from here on out I feel as though when the time comes I’ll be able plan my lessons in a more productive way. Taking into account how assessments affect the planning also helps mold the way the content will flow within the times I will be teaching my students. Domains and milestones set the tone for educational experiences for students so I hope that my proper planning will get students excited within the curriculum. 

My question for this topic is: What value do you put on assessments? Do you plan your lessons around domains that need to be addressed in your curriculum?

Chapter 2 of the text presents the evolution of the community counseling model beginning with the 1910’s.

For this discussion:

  • Select and briefly discuss at least one important happening in the evolution of community counseling for each of four time periods. Include the 1920’s – 1930’s, 1940’s – 1950’s, 1960’s – 1970’s, and 1980’s – 1990’s
  • Why is it important to understand this evolutionary process as discussed on page 24?
  • Minimum of 300 word posting

Reply to the following post, 200 minimum each reply

Post 1

One important happening in the evolution of community counseling that I’d like to bring up today is the impact of Carl Rogers’s Counseling Theory. In 1942, Carl Rogers introduced a book that he titled, Counseling and Psychotherapy. This book allowed counselors to understand person-centered theories and focused on specific techniques to build rapport with clients and to get the most out of sessions with them. During the 1940’s-1950’s, new challenges were being faced every day, it was the end of the great depression and veterans were returning from World War II. After Word War II, society was making a great change. Changes were being made with sex roles and especially for women beginning to join careers and make names for themselves rather than being a stay at home mother or any other titles that women had before. Many changes were taking place and understanding of people’s role in society needed to change. This is why Carl Rogers focused on person-centered therapy and understanding the client’s intrapsychic experiences rather than assuming their roles. Carl Rogers’s theories increased in popularity and more and more counselors were finding his theories to work best in the therapeutic setting.

During the 1940s and 1950s, the emphasis on individual and intrapsychic healing shifted many counselors’ attention away from the external factors

that affected their clients’ lives. Clients were able to work internally to understand their emotions from their own prespective rather than trying to find

meaning through environmental stressors. In the end, Carl Rogers shaped what we know about counseling today as we still use some of these methods

mentioned here, today. As a community counseling professional, Rogers had developed a unique ability to use his knowledge and experience to

promote social justice and healthy human development. We see this now with advocating for clients when they truly need the assistance.

Post 2

The 1920s and 1930s would see counselors slowly increasingly their visibility and employment in diverse settings. This included the growing number of counselors employed as guidance workers in public school systems, student personnel workers in college and universities, job counselors hired in various government employment agencies, personnel workers in private business and industry settings, rehabilitation counselors in health clinics and hospitals, and testing and placement service providers for war veterans. The Great Depression influenced researchers and practitioners especially in university and vocational settings, to emphasize helping strategies and counseling methods that related to employment.

Four historic factors contributed greatly to the evolution of the counseling profession during the 1940s and 1950s. These factors included the impact of Carl Rogers’s counseling theory, new challenges counselors faced in addressing the needs of veterans returning from World War II, the effect that World War II had on changing traditional sex roles, especially as they related to women’s career and vocational development and major breakthroughs in the professionalization of counseling. The counseling profession in the 1960s faced a number of serious questions and challenges. One of these problems centered on clientele. Events in the 1960s, however, would blur this simple dichotomy by suddenly expanding counseling audiences to include minority groups, dissenters to the war in Vietnam, returning veterans, alienated hippie and youth movements, experimenters and advocates of the drug culture, disenchanted students in high schools and colleges, victims of urban and rural poverty and disenfranchised women. Counselors needed to use multifaceted approaches in their work. The Community Mental Health Centers Act of 1963 mandated the creation of more than 2,000 mental health centers nationwide. The passage of the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973 was a major factor that contributed to the boost in financial payments for mental health care services to privately operated MCOs at the time. Many counselors found solace from the growing sense of apathy, rootlessness, fear and despair that plagued much of the nation in the 1980s by embracing a myopic professional identity in their work. It seemed as though these counseling professionals found refuge from the controversies and revolutionary spirit of the 1960s and 1970s by embracing helping strategies that maintained the existing status quo. The National Board for Certified Counselors was formed in 1982 and began to certify counselors on a national level. in the 1990s, the Transformational School Counseling Initiative emphasizes the need for school counselors to expand their role and function beyong providing one to one counseling for students’ experiencing problems and fulfilling quasi-administrative responsibilities that occupy an inordinate amount of their time, energy and attention.

It is important to understand the evolutionary process because many students and practitioners are simply not aware of the various factors and people who have contributed to the development of the community counseling theory over an extended period of time. It is also important to clarify how the roots of the community counseling framework are historically grounded in intervention strategies that have been used to address different forms of inequality, injustice and oppression that adversely impacted millions of people in our society.

I’m working on a writing discussion question and need guidance to help me learn.

This article assignment relates to an interesting story regarding Carlos Ghosn who previously masterminded the successful turnarounds of both Nissan and Peugeot and then became the CEO of both companies as well as helping Mitsubishi. Mr. Ghosn was known as a workaholic CEO and would fly back and forth each week between Tokyo and Paris where the companies are headquartered. He was considered a pioneer CEO with great vision and commanded a large compensation package. Then, in November 2018, Mr. Ghosn and a Nissan executive, Greg Kelly, were suddenly arrested after landing in Tokyo on charges of Mr. Ghosn understating his tax obligations. One of the primary tax issues in this case related to deferred compensation (Chapter 13 material) and it’s disclosure. Mr. Ghosn and his aide, Greg Kelly, claim that they did nothing wrong. Mr. Ghosn believed that he would not be able to provide an adequate defense for his position and there was much publicity to support him regarding the alleged unfairness of the Japanese prosecution system regarding Mr. Ghosn’s treatment as compared to US prosecutions. (Over 99% of cases that go to trial in Japan result in a conviction, usually based on a confession.) We don’t see anything like that conviction rate in the US trial system.

Then, on New Year’s eve of 2020, Mr. Ghosn arranged a daring escape to his birth home in Lebanon with the help of a team of people including a former green beret literally involving planes, trains and automobiles and a large musical box. He is currently preparing his criminal defense from Lebanon. Neither Peugeot nor Nissan has been able to attain the financial success that they had since Mr. Ghosn’s departure.

Instructions: Read through the following two articles (the second one was published last month) and short videos and comment on your impressions of this story. There is no required length here. I just want you to be exposed to this case.

Below you will see a set-up for the assignment followed by six questions. After reading the set-up (and gathering your field-experience in attributions!), make sure to provide me with enough support for your observations in each question. My advise is to use the one-sentence-per-point rule of thumb. If a question is worth 5 points, have a minimum of five sentences! More sentences are welcome, but that’s the minimum to fully answer the question! Finally, make sure this is based on a conversation that resolves around someone who is NOT a part of the conversation itself. I want to see how the people you are talking to describe the attributions of the person who is “absent”. If you want to download a pdf version of the assignment first, use this link Assignment #1 – Attribution Assignment Worksheet (instructure.com) or simply read the “set-up” below

As you can see, the letter writer says her biggest problem is her mother (relying on external factors) while Ann Landers made a dispositional attribution about the letter writer (“get into counseling”).

You can watch the attribution process in action, too. All it takes is a friend (or a group of friends) and an interesting topic to discuss. Get into a conversation with at least one other person (a friend, group of friends, significant other, or family member NOT in this class), and listen to him or her. Your friend will probably tell you about an interesting encounter he or she had with another person that day, or your group might be talking about a mutual friend who is not currently present in the group, but everyone in the group knows. As this other person talks, your assignment is to pay very close attention to what they say. There is a good chance your friend(s) will be trying to figure out why the person being discussed did what they did, or said what they said. In other words, they will be making attributions about someone not currently present. Your job is to keep track of their comments (without them knowing you are working on an assignment) and later write about the attributional strategies they are using. WRITE ABOUT A CONVERSATION YOU HAVE NOT HAD YET. I want to see you interact with your new knowledge, not recalling a past event.

In particular, is your friend(s) making internal attributions about another person’s character or personality, or are they making situational attributions about non-personality variables that may have contributed to the person’s response? Does your friend(s) seem to prefer making one type of attribution over the other? If their interpretation is dispositional (they focus on the person’s character or personality), what happens when you suggest another possible interpretation, one that is situational? If their interpretation is situational, what happens if you suggest a dispositional cause? Do they agree or disagree with you? What kinds of information do they offer as “proof” that their attribution is correct? Observing people when they are making attributions in real conversation will show you just how common and powerful this type of thinking is when people are trying to understand each other. Answer the six questions in the “Quiz” to describe your interaction

You work for a perfume company that is looking to implement a consistent pricing strategy across all of its channels.  Recent research conducted by the marketing department has revealed that consumers are not only likely to check prices online when purchasing in stores, but due to inconsistent pricing across different channels, consumers have been unable to determine the exact position of the product which has led to confusion.  Based on this information the CMO has insisted on the company implementing an pricing strategy that maintains a consistent pricing approach across all channels.  

In this multibillion dollar industry, there are several channels that drive the majority of the consumer spend.  These are Department stores, Specialty stores, Discount stores, Drug stores, Supercenters and Online.  The share of unit sales in each of these channels for the fragrance category is represented in the attached excel file.   Each of these channels has a different type of price sensitivity which will result in different levels of distribution in each channel, and therefore different levels of sales resulting from this distribution.  

Your fixed costs are fairly consistent as your company operates a large plant with a great amount of capacity.  For the sake of this exercise no changes to fixed costs are possible in the near future so all decisions must be made with your fixed costs remaining as is.

Your variable costs are also fairly consistent for the category of your product.  For purpose of this exercise, all products will be discussed in equivalized volume of 100 mL units.  Each bottle of perfume, at this average size, has $6.25 of variable cost to produce.  

There are additional costs to factor in.  Each channel requires a specific margin off the selling price (which is the factor that will allow us to control consistent pricing) and due to the difference in volume purchasing along with value added.  For example, department stores (25%) and specialty stores (30%) require relatively large margins compared with supercenters (8%) and discount stores (10%).  This means that a product selling for $10 to the consumer would be purchased by a department store for $7.50 giving them $2.50 margin on each sale but a discount store would have to purchase that same product for $9.00 giving them only a $1.00 margin.  You are aware that it is legal to offer different prices to different classes of retailers and your company seems to be aligned with driving more purchases through higher end retailers to maintain the image of the product.  

For simplicity sake, we will assume a consistent cost of $2 per unit for the intermediary/distributor used in each channel.  This give us a total laid in cost of $8.25 per unit.  The difference between that and your price to retailer determines the margin in each channel.  

Based on all this, you have created an excel file to help determine pricing (to retailer) and volume by channel working backwards from a consistent “suggested price” to the consumer per your CMO’s pricing strategy.  This file allows the entry of a “new” price in cell M4 which will then calculate back the new price to each retail channel based on margin requirements (cells L18 – L23).  The new price will also drive the calculation of the new volume in each channel using the elasticity from each channel (I18 – I23) to calculate % change in volume (J18 – J23) to get the predicted volume by channel (K18 – K23).  All of this will drive your sales to retail and profit calcuations.

Using the information provided in the excel file, determine three price points in this business.  The most profitable price point, the price point that maximizes dollar sales to retail, and the price point that maximizes unit sales.  You must include all 3 price points (maximized profit, maximized sales to retail, and maximizes unit sales) in order to receive credit.

For each of the price points you must also provide a brief description to your CMO/executive team that provides an overall assessment of what each of these prices will mean to the business.  I would expect these assessments to provide detail of channel trends and image implications to the brand.

There is also an expectation that you are making sound business recommendations.  Stating that selling the product at $1 will maximize unit sales may be accurate….but would also bankrupt the company.  With all three of your price recommendations make sure you are not just blindly looking at the numbers but thinking about it in the context of a real business.   

You must also provide a recommendation on which price to implement going forward.  Hint: stating that you would pick the most profitable price point because it is simply the most profitable is ignoring many other factors such as market share and sales growth and an answer like this will result in no points for this portion of the exercise.  I expect to receive good recommendations with sound and thoughtful strategy and business reasoning behind the decision.

In the article “Environmental Investing Frenzy Stretches Meaning of ‘Green’,” the Wall Street Journal talks about how this seabed mining company, The Metals Company, and CEO, Gerard Barron, are gaining funding for the $2.9 billion valuated company in part because of its claim of being an ecological crusader. However, oceanographers have found that corporations like The Metals Company who dig for minerals and metals in the seabed floor cause tremendous damage to habitats. Over 300 scientists have released a statement calling for the banning of all seabed mining activity until 2030 to give the UN a chance to determine laws for international waters on seabed mining and to give ocean habitats a chance to recover. So how are companies attaining investor money through claims of being green when they are causing so much damage to the environment? There’s been a surge in demand from investors for ecofriendly companies. How a company can claim to be ecofriendly is simply by producing their products in a more green-friendly manner than their counterparts, especially in an industry known for contaminating the planet. So, when The Metal Company explains to their potential investors that they don’t contaminate the air with big oil-consuming machines or avoid using child labor unlike their counterparts in the industry, it may sound to the investors that their money is being put into a company that is doing good for the planet. But what is being kept close to the company’s chest is the ecological damage it is causing our oceans.

For this week’s reports on an ethical dilemma, I read the article “How New Technology is Illuminating a Classic Ethical Dilemma. The briefly summarize the article, it talks about a VR being used to simulate how a person may react in a social and ethical decision. The decision was whether to kill one person which saves the lives of four or to do nothing and let those four people die. It is stated in the article herein, “There’s a loud bang; one of the platforms goes into free fall. If it hits the floor, the voice warns, four workers will die. But there’s still a chance to save them. A worker sent to fix the electrical problem stands in front of me, bent over his work, oblivious to my presence. All I have to do is shove him to the floor below, killing him and shorting the electricity, which will spare the four people plunging to their death.” So the question is whether you would save the lives of four which results in the death of one? For this given situation, consequentialism would be used to best represents this though process. Consequentialism is the doctrine that the morality of an action is to be judged solely by its consequences. So, justifying that the one person should die to save the lives of four would be a perfect example. Along with 55% that chose to kill that one person, it could objectively be justified.

This is an issue of concern because of the increasing number of baby boomers, an aging nursing workforce, and low supply. Notably, with more nurse practitioners retiring, an increased number of healthcare seekers, and a low supply of new staff, patient care becomes overwhelming, which can affect management outcomes and cause burnout.

      TRY TO NARROW IT DOWN FOR instance the shortage of nurse practitioners in rural area primary care settings.

I would like you to reflect upon the possible connections that would tie the rise of Genghis (Chinggis) Khan to the era of intense spiritual and intellectual upheaval and questioning that preceded what came to be known as the Protestant Reformation over two centuries later in Europe. The Mongol expansion sparked a series of events that might provide us with at least one piece of the puzzle to explain what led society to question everything it had more or less quietly accepted before. (I stress, this is a possible explanation of some of the many factors). Very specifically, I am asking you to consider disease as the particular engine of change here.

In essence I am asking you to follow the domino pieces. Some of the domino pieces include the Mongol conquests, Mongol Empire, Trade, Plague, Depletion of Monastic Orders, Expanded Charity Requirements…. Making the correct connections and linkages and expressing them well is crucial. I am asking you to follow one particular argument focused mostly on disease, so although there are many other interesting factors (knowledge transfers and the like) please focus on disease.

In other words try to provide a fleshed out narrative that could explain the connections between these seemingly unconnected events (fleshed out refers to the need to provide some level of detail on each event and a clear explanation of the connections – please be sure to establish a timeline and to provide dates.)

Notice that there is already an argument inherent to this prompt. You do not need to create and original argument. Part of the exercise here is to see how well you can succinctly express this argument in your thesis statement.

Insturctions;

When you are asked to look at possible connections between the rise of Genghis Khan and the changes in Europe, I am not asking for a direct connection!! The Mongol unification gave rise to a certain set of events. Those then set other events off, which in turn set off yet others until we finally have the events that I have referred to as possible precursors to the Reformation (Those things that caused people to question the Church and so on and so forth.) That is what I am asking you to discuss and explain. The events leading to the preconditions for a movement of intellectual and social revolt (so to speak.)

TermAs explained in the PDF reading “Matching the Product with the Audience When Marketing Yourself,” it’s critical to understand your product (i.e., your skills, attributes, personality, core values, etc.) and to determine and understand your target audiences (i.e., potential employers, colleagues, customers, career gatekeepers, etc.)

.For this assignment, you’ll work to outline your potential target audiences, determine what those audiences desire, and then decide how you’ll match your product with your target audiences. Using either a paragraph, outline, or table format, do the following:

1.List Current Audiences.List various audiences (at least 8) to whom you currently market yourself on a daily, weekly, or other periodic basis. These might include potential employers, current employers, friends, family, teachers, various societal segments, social groups, customers, colleagues, employees, store personnel,vendors/suppliers, social media audiences, etc. Don’t forget that these audiences might be face-to-face, online, over the phone, etc. For each audience, be extremely specific as to who this audience is. Don’tjustsay “store employees” when you can say “the early morning employees at the Starbucks thatI go to every weekday.” Don’t just say “my co-workers” when you can say “my co-workers Cristina, Derek, and Victoria who work in the cubicles next to mine.”

2.Importance of Current Audiences.For each of the 8+ current audiences, provide some insights as to why each particular audience might be important to you in your marketing yourself efforts. How can impressing each audiencehelpyou?

3.What Current Audiences Want From You.Finally, for each of the 8+ current audiences you listed, write down at least three characteristics (features, attributes, skills, traits, values, etc.) that they would desire in a person such as you. Although there may be some similar traits or characteristics across the audiences you listed, each audience likely will desire some unique characteristics aswell.

4.List Prospective Audiences.Your next step is to add at least three new “prospective” target audiences to whom you would like to market yourself in the near or distant future. Again, they can be potential employers in a particular industry, friends, social groups, customers, fans, readers, etc.While it’s good to be specific as to the industry, type of people, etc.,youdon’t have to be as specific as you were in Step 1 because you may not know the details of these audiences yet.

5.Importance of Prospective Audiences.As you did in Step 2 with your “current” audiences, for each of the 3+ “prospective” audiences, provide some insights as to why eachparticular audience might be important to you in your future marketing yourself efforts. How can impressing each audiencehelp you?

6.What Prospective Audiences Want From You.For each of the 3+ “prospective” target audiences, write down at least three characteristics (features, attributes, skills, traits, values, etc.) that they would desire in a person such as you. Because you may not really knowtheseaudiences very well, you may end up estimating this section more than the other ones. Nevertheless, consider what characteristics would be important to each audience.

7.Product/Audience Match.Now consider how well you’re matching your Product You with the desired attributes of the (at least 8) current audiences andthe (at least 3) prospective audiences that you listed. Discuss the matches as well as the discrepancies (the instancesin which you don’tmatch).8.Changing Product You.Discuss what you can do to have a better match between your various target audiences and the product (set of attributes, traits, etc.) that you’re offering. How can you change your Product You as well as your Personal/Professional Brand to better market yourself to these various audiences? Thissection consists of a set of self-improvementrecommendations.

Assignment Sections

1.Cover Page: Name, Panther ID, Major, Minor, Certificate(s), AssignmentTitle

2.Introduction: Discuss the purpose for a Product/AudienceMatch.

3.Product/Audience Match Analysis: This is where you’ll put the analysis from theeight stepsabove.

4.Synthesis and Summary: Discuss what you learned from this exercise. What did you learn about target marketing? What did you learn about your own audiences? What did you learn about yourself? Synthesize your learning from the various parts of the assignment and create a summarythat you can review in thefuture.

Discussion Topic #4 – Chapter 3 – Counseling in Context

(300 words minimum for main posting with 200 word replies)

Chapter 3 of the text illustrates the Respectful Counseling Framework, and includes four counseling approaches with a social justice orientation (p. 73).

For this discussion:

Briefly describe the Respectful Counseling Framewor

Discuss two of the approaches with a social justice orientation

The RESPECTFUL counseling framework gives direction to both assessment and counseling by helping to focus the counselor’s attention on multiple factors affecting human development; it is based on a broad and deep appreciation for multiculturalism, diversity, and social context. This approach recognizes the multidimensional nature of human development and addresses the need for a comprehensive model of human diversity that has practical utility for the work of mental health professionals (D’Andrea & Daniels, 1997, 2001).   This comprehensive diversity framework consists of 10 factors that were selected because they are noted to affect clients’ psychological development and personal well-being in many important ways. Following are the specific factors:R—religious/spiritual identityE—economic class backgroundS—sexual identityP—level of psychological maturityE—ethnic/racial identityC—chronological/developmental challengesT—various forms of trauma and other threats to one’s sense of well-beingF—family background and historyU—unique physical characteristicsL—location of residence and language differences    As counselors, it is known that mental health is also affected by experiences of oppression. As long as the client is mired in guilt, they will have a difficult time meeting the challenges of developing life skills. “Clients who recognize the role of oppression in their lives are more likely to move from self-blame to a solid foundation of self-defense.”   Oppression can be defined as “the systemic disadvantage of one group compared to another group that has the collective power of the state or society.” (Arnold, 1997)The two approaches to counseling that I chose are empowerment-focused counseling and feminist counseling, both of which have in common that they are oriented to social justice, in addition to that they empower people to develop individually, they help to recognize what is happening them and how to use the skills so that the context does not affect their lives. Both have the following characteristics:   Empowerment-ocused counseling focuses on empowering clients more, not less if they learn to recognize the ways they are affected by their environmental contexts. Victims adopt the values and norms of the dominant group and criticize the traditional values and experiences of their own group. Oppression hinders positive individual action.   And Feminist Counseling and Therapy focuses on helping clients recognize the complexity of relationships that are affected by competitive oppressions. Many counselors and therapists see the feminist model as appropriate for both men and women and use it to increase their understanding of all forms of oppression. The women’s movement provides a broad conceptualization that helps move the conversation from one focus to a single example.Daniela FerrufinoReference:Lewis J.A., Lewis M.D., Daniels J.A., D’Andrea M.J., (2011), Community Counseling: A Multicultural-Social Justice Perspective, Fourth Edition, Belmot, CA; Brooks / Cole, Ch. 3.

Ivanna Schuls 

           The Respectful Counseling Framework is based on a broad and deep appreciation for multiculturalism, diversity and social context. The RESPECTFUL model consists of 10 factors: religious/spiritual identity, economic class background, sexual identity, level of psychological maturity, ethnical/racial identity, chronological/developmental challenges, various forms of trauma and other threats to one’s sense of well-being, family background and history, unique physical characteristics and location of residence and language differences. These 10 factors represent what is considered to be important aspect of “cultural diversity.” The RESPECTFUL counseling framework recognized the multidimensional nature of human development and addresses the need for a comprehensive model of human diversity that has practical utility for the work of mental health professionals. 

           The 4 counseling theories or approaches that adheres to the social justice paradigm are: empowerment-focused counseling, ecological counseling, feminist counseling and relational-cultural counseling. For the purpose of this forum, I will be discussing empowerment-focused counseling and feminist counseling and therapy.  

Empowerment-focused counseling emphasizes in how the client can be more empowered by learning the ways they are affected by their environmental context. Empowerment is being aware of context, including oppression, learning skills for self-management, mutual support, self-esteem, and the ability to recognize options and make choices. The competencies that underlie and empowerment-based approach to counseling are explicated in the ACA Advocacy Competencies. The advocacy-oriented counselor is able to identify strength and resources that clients bring to the counseling process, recognize the signs indicating that an individual’s behavior and concerns reflect responses to systematic or internalized oppression, train clients in self-advocacy skills, and others.  

The Feminist Counseling and Therapy began when women realize that the problems that they perceived to be their own were, in fact, systematic. They began to perceive that what they thought were personal shortcomings were actually rooted in social/political realities. Feminist counseling and therapy grew out of this realization to help professionals and clients to increase the understanding of oppression. Feminism has always concentrated on gender as a political construct.

Some of the characteristics that those 2 approaches have in common is that both are focused on helping the client with a social justice orientation. It expresses some problems for example, racism, sexism, etc. Both approaches emphasized the social justice counselor’s role of advocacy and social activism. It helps the client understand the situation in the broadest possible context and help them work from a strengths-based perspective. 

Thank you, Ivanna Schuls

The strengths philosophy is grounded in the work of positive psychology that tries to understand what is right with you (not necessarily what is wrong). With this in mind, the StrengthsQuest is a personality test that will help you to identify your talents (i.e., strengths). Knowing your strengths and the domains with which you lead can help you to better develop your skills and collaborate with others. The philosophy of strengths comes from the perspective that, rather than overly focus on fixing your weaknesses, you should be developing your strengths. A weakness is defined as anything that gets in the way of your success. The best way to overcome a weakness is to manage it effectively and to use your strengths to overcome it. Moreover, effective leaders know how to identify the strengths in others that help to complement their own. Take the Strengths Quest online at www.strengthsquest.com (Links to an external site.). When using your student email, you may be able to take the test for cheaper, go to https://www.strengthsquest.com/225683/receive-educator-discount-price.aspx (Links to an external site.) for more information. If you have already taken the StrengthsQuest, you do not have to take it again, hopefully you remember your Signature 5 Themes, or just log-in again.

After reading and reviewing your profile, you will write an analysis in which you are to digest the meaning of the report. What does it mean to you? Was there something that surprised you or not? Why? What kind of action plan for development can you take now that you’ve discovered your strengths? Be specific. In your analysis, you will need to interview at least three individuals (ideally: one supervisor, one co-worker, and one subordinate). You’ll interview them about your strengths, do they see a strength that was identified in the report in you? Ask them to give you an example of when they have seen it in you. Be as detailed as possible. You can use the questions listed in the Strengths Text Handout (Chapter 6, found in Canvas Modules) to aid in your analysis.

If you are not currently working, or unable to contact supervisors and co-workers, you can interview classmates who know you well, friends, or family members.

TOPICS:

After reading Persepolis, listening to Jhumpa Lahiri’s interviews, and reading the poetry of Naomi Shihab Nye reflect on the other modules and the other cultures you have been exposed to throughout the various readings.

  • How are war, oppression, immigration, language relevant to the cultures referred to in this module?

Make sure to make specific references/experiences in the texts from these modules and how they compare / contrast to texts from other modules. 

REQUIREMENTS: 

You will not be able to reply to other students until you create your own post. When you’re done, get to know some of the other students in the class. Reply to at least 1 other student. If you are one of the first students to post in a discussion forum, you may have to return to the forum later to complete the reply posts.

The essays in your “new thread” in the discussion are Gordon Rule assignments. Therefore, you should use your best writing skills when you work on these assignments. Each essay and discussion assignment has four basic requirements:

  1. Prepare: Read the literature and take note of its discussion question. Be careful to answer the discussion question for each essay. You work needs to be “on topic,” as the saying goes.
  2. Write: Adhere to the length requirements for the essay and the discussion portion of the assignment.”New Threads” should be at least 350 words in length. As you write, Blackboard will keep track of your word count, so it’s easy to know where you are. After you submit your new thread, you will be able to read the other students’ posts. Your essay MUST have an introduction, 2 short body paragraphs, and a conclusion. If you submit just one paragraph for this assignment, you will automatically receive no more than 60%. Organization /Format Reminder: Keep in mind that this is a short essay assignment, not a paragraph assignment. Thus, you must have an introduction, body, and conclusion in your original response
  3. Reply: You must respond to at least 2 other students/classmates to earn full credit for the assignment. Replies/responses should be in paragraph form (at least 250-500 words). Your responses could be just one short paragraph. 
  4. In-text Citations: You must use at least ONE quotation per work you analyze in your short essay. Please place an in-text citation (also called a parenthetical citation) immediately after you close the quotation marks and before you place a period for your sentence. That way, anyone in the class (including me!) can easily find the quotation in the text if necessary. If you’re not sure what to place inside the parentheses, review MLA style in Module 1.

Discussion Topic #7 – Chapter 6 – Client Advocacy

Chapter 6 presents the importance of client advocacy not only to help clients achieve a sense of power, but also to help create social/environmental change.

For this discussion:

Read the examples in the text addressing the Counseling-Advocacy Process

What are some of the questions you might ask an individual who has been imprisoned, is now being released, and wishes to return to their home community?

What are some of the interventions you might undertake in order to help this person succeed in their new life?

Daniela

Advocacy services serve two purposes, increase clients’ sense of power and personal power and fostering environmental change.

   Advocacy-oriented counselors work with individuals or families, helping them develop self-advocacy skills, to advocate for their rights of access to education resources or services they need. When counselors direct attention to environmental changes, they remain aware of the complex responses of the individual. Based on this, the questions you would ask a person who has been imprisoned, who is now being released and wants to return to his community of origin, would be:

Now that you are free, what have you thought to do?

How are your relationships with family and friends? Would they offer you psychological support during this situation that you are living in now? How have they adjusted to the fact that you have been in prison and are now at liberty?

Do you have someone close in particular who would be willing to help you?

Can you support yourself? What job skills could you learn? Do you know of an opportunity open to you or could it be?

Do you need help and information to find a job?

Do you have ready access to whatever legal assistance you need?

Do you or your family need a financial help? What sources of financial aid does your family have? Do they depend on you?

   The Counseling-Advocacy Process must accompany the Client, until he can overcome his obstacles; interventions to help this person to be successful in his new life begin, by navigating the system to find possible short-term solutions.

   As an advocate for the client, the counselor should help make connections with a variety of community resources that can help him. This person as an individual who just got out of jail needs resources to help insert him into society.

   The system has employment or rehabilitation centers that help people acquire the skills and opportunities he needs to achieve independence and financial security.

  1.    Counselors’ advocacy work on behalf of clients is greatly improved, when the community is home to a responsive support network. Community counselors can use their knowledge and skills to play a role in construction assist networks and help carry out community planning.
  2. Saryleen 
  3. Advocacy services are fundamental and designed to increase clients’ sense of power and foster environmental changes; these two purposes are complimentary to each other. Advocacy and counseling are linked in the helping process. As counselors advocating for clients, you are not only working for them you are also working with them in order to assist and lead them in acquiring the proper skills for self-advocacy and empowerment. When clients face barriers they cannot overcome, community counselors use their own skills and stature to speak up for them. 
  4. When addressing the Counseling-Advocacy Process you must examine both the personal and environmental factors which will influence change and determine the strategies used. Some questions I would ask an individual who has been imprisoned and is due for release back into their community would include, but not be limited to: 
  5. 01. Whom/What does your support system consist of?  Are you close to anyone in your family?  
  6. 02. You have ideas concerning what to do differently upon your release, but how would you go about accomplishing them? 
  7. 03. Are the people close to you before your sentence still there for you now? Do they add support or positively impact your life in any way? If not, are they worth keeping? 

04. Do you have children? If so, are you in contact with them? (Depending on answer and if interested) How will you go about restoring and strengthening the relationship with them? 

05. Do you have your living arrangements accommodated for your return? Who would you be living with?  

06. Would you need to apply for financial assistance? Do you have access to medical health benefits, medications, and/or food assistance? 

07. What job skills do you possess? Which skills are you open to obtain? Where will you begin looking for employment?

08. (Depending on history) What are your plans to continue being financially stable in a legal manner? 

09. Are there any obstacles you fear, or feel you may encounter, in accessing resources and services needed? 

10. Is this your first time serving a sentence? What are your reasons and methods to avoid returning to old behaviors and risk coming back to prison? 

11. Have you been able to acquire and implement coping and life skills?  

12. Have you analyzed how your past reactions/emotions/thoughts led you down the wrong direction? How can you go about it differently?

13. (Depending on inmates age range)What are your thoughts on acquiring your GED for you to return or upon your return to the community?  

14. Do you know of, and have access to, community resources in case of emergency; such as hot-line numbers or crisis and suicide prevention units you may contact? 

15. Are you interested in seeking additional professional help by receiving counseling and/or joining a program/center?

Web Search Assignment

As discussed in the lecture and notes, the web is actually really well designed, but one needs to understand that design to best find information. Google’s search results page is rich with easy-to-use tools that provide flexibility and control over your search results. But it is also possible to use those same tools in the text of your search. Therefore, once you learn about these tools, you will find what you are looking for even faster and the quality of the information should be better. To complete the following assignment, you will need to complete a search using “Google (Links to an external site.)” (www.google.com) and then repeat the search using “Duck Duck Go (Links to an external site.)” (www.duckduckgo.com)

First research an incident from 2004 where four teenagers stole rare books from Transylvania university library.

You can start with the search phrase “Transylvania University library theft”

Starting with this search term, explain what you find and why this was a strong or weak term to begin with.

Next start to use the tools you learned from the lecture, develop a better search term, and research what you are now most interested in learning about this event. Then write a short description of this specific aspects of the event you are interested in and have learned about. What term did you choose to develop your new search?

Before you start this search, think about

1. What am I looking for? (What do I want? What am I trying to find? What am I trying to find out?)
2. How would I talk about this? (What keywords could I use in my query?)
3. How would someone else talk about this?
4. How can I describe this better? (Which of these keywords are common or general words? Which would be more specific? Are there better words I could use?)
5. What kind of results am I looking for? (Do I want a definition, a database, a list, a map, an image, a video, a newspaper report or something else?)

  • Next, use the date range filter in google outline what dates have the most mentions of the aspects of the event you choose to search and which dates that have the most mentions have the most relevant information early in the results. Support your answer.
  • Next choose a website that is from a geographically local source to the event. Use search features you have learned to only examine information from only that site. Explain what site you choose, why you choose that site, how you searched from only that site and if you learned more or less from searching just one website.
  • Next go to duckduckgo.com and complete your first search from above within duckduckgo by using the !bang google option (Links to an external site.). Meaning you end the search with “!g” Doing this is an attempt to bypass the filter bubble. Did anything change in your search findings? What did you find more useful or less useful? Easier or harder?
  • Then complete the date range search and the search using a geographically local source with duckduckgo. Compare the two search engines and identify what you liked or didn’t like about them.

Simplified Marketing Yourself Plan for Personal/Professional Branding“Brand image exists in the minds of the audience members. It’s the marketer’s job to shape that image accordingly.”Typical marketing plans require marketers to assess their own sets of resources, evaluate the marketplace, determine their target market(s), and then create a set of reasonable objectives (goals) with an accompanying set of appropriate strategies and tactics to reach those objectives.For this assignment, you will create a simplified marketing plan for your own personal and/or professional brand, i.e., “Brand You.” This could in itself be a daunting task, but fortunately, most of this has already been completed by you for you in previous class assignments.Simplified Personal/Professional Marketing Plan Elements1.Plan introduction and duration. This is a brief introduction to the purpose of the plan, including the duration of its scope (1 year, 2 years, 3 years, etc.). The duration must be for at least one year. 2.Summary/synthesis of your personal raw materials. (This was accomplished as part of your Raw Materials Assessment.) Summarize and synthesize your personal raw materials in a manner that allows a reader to understand the opportunities and challenges that may face you. as you construct and develop “BrandYou.”3.Market segment(s) that are to be targeted. (This was accomplished if you completed the Product/Audience Match assigned earlier in the semester.) This section should include any relevant portions from your Product/Audience Match Strategy assignment that would apply to this marketing plan: a)The potential target markets for your personal/professional brand (from “Part 1: List Current Audiences” and “Part 4: List Prospective Audiences”).b)Why these audiences are being targeted (from “Part 2: Importance of Current Audiences” and “Part 5: Importance of ProspectiveAudiences”).c)What the people in those segments desire in a person, employee, boss, etc.; that is, the attributes of the ideal candidate to be courted by that market segment (from “Part 3: What Current Audiences Want from You” and “Part 6: What Prospective Audiences Want fromYou”).Note: Even though you will only mention in this document the target segments that are applicable to this marketing plan, you must still include the completeProduct/AudienceMatch Strategy assignment as an Appendix to this assignment.

4.Objectives/Goals for your brand. (Much of this was accomplished if you completed the Personal Marketing Strategy assigned earlier in the semester.) List at least five clearly identified goals that have a measurable component and a time (deadline) component. Delineate how each goal will be measured to ensure, eventually, that it has (or has not) been accomplished. You can have multiplelevel objectives and combine this section with multiplelevel strategies from the next section if desired. The key is that all objectives must lead you to your overall goal of winning the hearts of your target audience(s).NOTE: Even though you will only mention in this document any objectives/strategies that you feel are relevant to this marketing plan, you must still include the completePersonalMarketing Strategy assignment as an Appendix to this assignment.5.Strategies and tactics designed to reach the objectives. (Much of this was accomplished if you completed the Personal Marketing Strategy assigned earlier in the semester.) Your strategies should have directline connections to the objectives they are designed to reach. As mentioned above (in Part 4), you can combine this section with the Objectives or leave it as a separate section. In either case, you must include a onepage figure/chart/image that depicts how the strategies and objectives are connected. 6.Marketing Plan Timeline. Create a timeline for your plan where you detail the start and end dates for each strategy and tactic. You must include a onepage figure/chart/image of the timeline.You can be as creative as you like to create the timeline.

  • Submission includes all sections and is a cohesive marketing plan.
  • Includes 1-page figure/chart/image for marketing plan timeline and 1-page figure/chart/image for how strategies are connected to your objectives.
  • Appendix includes the complete Product/Audience Match Strategy assignment and the complete Personal Marketing Strategy assignment, both of which follow their respective instructions.

This is your Programming Assignment 3 . When you have completed the assignment please ZIP you ENTIRE Netbeans project and upload it using the assignment upload link. Note, you must upload the entire Netbeans project in a zipped file; because, I check all your code to see if it runs. Remember that you must upload the assignment before it’s due date to get credit. Otherwise, you will receive a zero for the assignment grade.

The project instructions can be found here:

For this assignment you been assigned a group number, which you can find in canvas’s gradebook. Depending on the group number you are to write the recursive code that generates the sequence for your group number. For example if you are in Group 3 your code will generate the following sequence:

Group 3 Sequence
———————————————
1, 1, 2, -5, 22, -106, 475, -2171, 9893, -45080, 205453, -936304, 4267030, -19446179, 88622237, -403878935, 1840601122, 201746431, -427139774, 1878826890

In addition, you will output the recursive call multipliers x, y, z values under your sequence output.
Note x,y,z are integers that can range in values from : -10 to 10

YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE LINEAR ALGEBRA. If you do this you will get zero points for the assignments

You must code this using brute force. Hence you must loop through all possible values of x,y,z to find the correct x, y and z values that generate your sequence.

Linear Algebra.
If you do not know Linear Algebra you must crack the sequence my brute force….

Hint: Use the idea of Fibonacci recursive code in the notes with one more lag call.

Multiplier: x, y, z

First, watch the John Doerr lecture, “Ideas are easy, execution is everything.” 

Then, consider the following:

“Is it better to start a business now or wait until you gain experience working for someone else?”

When preparing your response, support your view with facts from John Doerr’s lecture. The first person to respond will pick a side to support. The next person to respond will constructively disagree with the first person to post. Each person thereafter will disagree with the previous person who posted. Try not to repeat ideas already stated. Therefore, you may want to access resources outside of the class materials to support your position.

  • Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (Mar 4, 2015). John Doerr: Ideas are easy, execution is everything.  

Although it could be beneficial, working for someone else and waiting to gain enough experience will not necessarily prepare you for the challenges you might face when starting your own business. It will definitely give you some sense of what a business should look like but that knowledge can be gained in other fields. When starting a new company, you have the opportunity to learn the most valuable business lessons out there. In my opinion, surrounding yourself with the right mentors who have different sets of skills and experience is a great way to learn to start a business. You might not think so, but there are many high-profile entrepreneurs that are willing to share their knowledge and experiences to help people achieve their goals.

John Doerr mentioned in the video a quote from Thomas Edison that says “Innovation without execution is a hallucination”. Something I’ve learned from watching this video is that your ability to execute matters enormously, so it is important to start somewhere. When starting a business with no experience, you will encounter some situations that you will not have the knowledge or the skills to solve on your own so it is ideal that you find people that possess the skills you might be missing.

  1. Briefly and concisely summarize the history and physical (H&P) findings as if you were presenting it to your preceptor using the pertinent facts from the case. Use shorthand where possible and approved medical abbreviations. Avoid redundancy and irrelevant information.
  2. Provide a differential diagnosis (minimum of 3) which might explain the patient’s chief complaint along with a brief statement of pathophysiology for each.
  3. Analyze the differential by using the pertinent findings from the history and physical to argue for or against a diagnosis.
  4. Rank the differential in order of most likely to least likely.
  5. Identify any additional tests and/or procedures that you feel is necessary or needed to help you narrow your differential. All testing decisions must be supported with an evidence-based medicine (EBM) argument as to why it is necessary or pertinent in this case. If no testing is indicated or needed, you must also support this decision with EBM evidence.

Jennifer Richards: 

Quotation- Pleasure- Create an aesthetically pleasing environment through the use of plants, color, and bulletin board displays (Powerpoint page 6).

Response- Creating an environment that is safe but full of print, vibrate colors allows to students to feel welcome. The book states on page 232, “that room arrangement is an issue that can be decided before school starts. Take into account the fixed features in the room, instructional materials and supplies, traffic areas, work. areas, boundaries for activity areas, visibility (being able to see all students), and the purpose of various seating arrangements.” Some teachers may forget that how students are sitting in the classroom makes a big difference. The teacher should make sure that her desk in located in an area where she can see every student in her classroom. The bulletin boards should be bright and serve a purpose. For example, one could have the class rules, a daily or weekly schedule, lunch menus, and classroom helpers. Another bulletin board could be simple and full of decoration with seasonal and motivational. By adding a plant or an aquarium to your classroom brings life and responsibility to your students. By allowing the students to water the plant and feed the fish daily gives them a since of responsibility. The aquarium is fun, educational tool that parents and children can enjoy together. Students not only develop learning skills but because they get excited about the aquarium, they are eager to share what they learned with family members and friends. Plants help remove pollutants from the air by absorbing them into their roots and leaves. Students can also learn about photosynthesis. Plants can also improve students mental well being. Plants add a touch of freshness and vibrancy to any dull windows. It is also a good idea to have the students birthdays and major holidays posted in the classroom. Make sure its bring and inviting for students to look for their birthdays. It will make them feel even more comfortable.

Question: By adding plants and aquarium to your classroom what how would you incorporate them into your lessons and helpers? How would you set up the desk and bulletin boards in your classroom to make students feel welcome?

“Psychological Security is the feeling that the classroom is a secure, comfortable place to be. Establishing a warm psychological climate is a prerequisite for a focused learning environment.”

Weinstein C. (2007). Uploaded to Creating an Inviting Classroom Environment. http://bb.plsweb.com/CM_Nav/m3/m3topicb_key1.html (Links to an external site.)

I chose this quote because I feel like one of the most important things a classroom should have established is a safe learning environment. Students deserve to feel safe and accepted within a class, both by peers and teacher, enough that it promotes learning. Creating a welcoming classroom is more than just being open minded to every student, it includes building a relationship with the student to learn about their strengths, weaknesses, or what they need support in. This also should include any multicultural or english language learner student; by taking the time to talk to them and parents, teachers can get a better idea of their student’s background and what method would be best to teach and support them. Having that trust with students can then continue into being positive and encouraging with their progress – either academic or behavioral. By being direct in the high expectations we expect in students academically while remaining supportive, they feel more inclined to believing in themselves as well and try to complete assignments even they find hard. When it comes to behavior, the reading from Burden and Byrd on page 250 states “Communicate basic attitudes and expectations to students, and model them in your behavior,” meaning that if we want students to exhibit a certain behavior, we ourselves should model that expectation for others. One of the benefits to this is that we can also use it to reinforce expected behaviors while correcting bad ones. For example, in a scenario of a student not following a rule such as holding your hand up to answer a question, teachers can reinforce the rule by stating it before asking for responses and then showing a positive reaction towards those who do – you don’t necessarily have to punish behaviors such as this as long as you reinforce the correct one if you are teaching them these skills. All of these examples were the benefits of the positives that an established safe learning environment can come from a teacher-student trust, but there is also benefits for students and their peers. 

A main point of establishing a safe learning environment is to create a classroom that is welcoming and respectful of each other. By putting an emphasis of this in a classroom and showing that ourselves, students would then learn to also be accepting of others. Which is a huge importance not only to make sure that it feels like a community and has students feeling safe, but also for a way to prevent bullying. We should take the time to have small talks on how important it is that students don’t bully others, be respectful, and to confront it if they’re seeing it happen. 

While this is being said in mind with a best scenario, there may be students who might not want to take part in the environment in the classroom and continue to misbehave. What is the best method to help that misbehaving student not in a way to negatively punish them but rather in supporting them to exhibit correct behaviors?

  • Please answer the following questions, 300 words minimum.
  • Define “community counseling” as discussed beginning on page 9 of the text and include the concepts of community, multicultural competence, social justice, and the healthy development of clients and communities
  • Why is the community counseling model important to mental health professionals?
  • How does the community counseling model tie the services provided by the counselor to the client’s environment.

Please reply to the following posts, 200 words minimum for each post.

Post 1

As stated by the textbook, community counseling is, “A comprehensive helping framework that is grounded by in multicultural competence and oriented toward social justice.” The concept of community is said to be a group of people who have things in common and share similar interests and needs. Community is what unites many different people together, no matter their race, gender, origin, etc. Multicultural competence is what is widening the scope to which mental health professionals are expanding their helping strategeis to reach everyone. In other words, they want to adopt new strategies that can help out people of different cultural, racial, and ethnic backgrounds to best reach them. It is stated that mental health professionals must be aware of their cultural view and biases in order to best help their client. They need to put their beleifs and views aside and understand the differences between their culture’s and their client’s cultures. Social justice is the understanding of other races, origins, genders, etc, and being able to promote acess and fairness for everyone. Counselors need to understand how to help someone who has not had equal access or treatment to their way of life, whether that be in their human rights or access to resources. A counselor helps in community by advocating for social justice and understaning their need to help everyone to be treated fairly. Lasltly, human development is, “the process of enlarging people’s choices.” This means reachnig certain capabalities that can allow people lead better and healthier lies, whether that be working on the social, political or even economic aspects of people’s lives. The reaching of these capapbilities allow people to feel part of a community.

The community counseling model is important to mental health professionals because it makes it easier to establish a healhty system that can best deliver mental health help to a community. It is important to know that to best make use of the model is by facilitating growth by using positive and empowering methods. The community counseling model ties the services provided by the counselor to the client’s environment becasue ot allows for a health system. Without a healthy community that is provided by the counselor, there might not be progress. There need to be a positive setting and environent to best help the client.

Post 2

According to the text, community counseling is defined as a comprehensive helping framework that is grounded in multicultural competence and oriented toward social justice. The concept of community can have many different meanings. Communities have unity, continuity, and predictability; this means that it consists of so many different variables that bring everything together. Multicultural competence is known to as being able to become aware of your own assumptions about huan behavior, values, biases, preconveived notions, and personal limitations. It also has to do with actively understanding the worldview of culturally different clients and learning to work and understand what works best for them. Social justice is characterized as the belief that all people have a right to equitable treatment, suport for their human rights, and a fair allocation of societal resources and advocating for it. In regards to healthy development of clients and communities, that is known as the process of enlarging people’s choices when it comes to their health and mental health.

undefined

The community counseling model is important to mental health professionals because it facilitates human and community development through client advocacy, and mental health interventions to be able to assist the community on more ways than one.

undefined

The community counseling model ties the services provided by the counselor to the client’s environment by focusing on the human development, psychological and multicultural counseling theories that should be addressed when needed in the therapeutic setting. It also allows counselors to apply many different interventions that build on people’s inner strrenghts and allow for an ultimate change that help in advocating for clients and supports healthy human development. As counselors, we want to be able to assist our clients in as many ways as we can, even if comes to the point of needing to refer them to another professional. With the community counseling model, counselors will be able to advocate and help clients to the best of their abilities.

The two posts are the responses of the following questions( for you to have a better idea what are the posts about)

  • Which of the competencies do you still need to learn and/or practice?
  • Which ones do you think will be challenging for you as a community counselor?

Please reply to each posts, 200 words each post.

Post 1

To be culturally competent, I need to be aware of common values of different cultures and assumptions to avoid bias and do my work effectively. To achieve my goal, I have to learn awareness competencies, skills, and knowledge competencies. In awareness competencies, I need to be culturally aware, diverse, and sensitive to my own culture while respecting the value of other cultures. To achieve awareness competency, I will learn of my background, values, and attitudes in my culture. With this understanding, I will value the differences between cultures and cultivate respect for them. Knowledge competencies is for me to have extensive knowledge of my cultural and racial heritage and know how these factors affect my counseling process. I need to learn about common social issues such as stereotyping, racism, oppression, and my feelings and belief. I will also know my social impact on those I am interacting with, how I communicate to facilitate the counseling process. As a community counselor, I have to seek out training and educational skills to enrich my understanding of different cultures. To be competent, I need to seek an understanding racial and cultural composition of societies constantly.

The most challenging competency as a community counselor will be awareness. We are all raised in different environments, and awareness is something to practice every day while around different communities to get it right. To be aware of the culture and race of the people I am dealing with; I have to accurately interpret verbal and nonverbal communication and know certain culturally bound approaches. Awareness competencies will be challenging because some responses are impulsive, and one can realize their mistakes later, which were not intentional. To be culturally sensitive will require a lot of work, and I will give my best in this field to be a competent counselor in all sectors.

Post 2

To be effective in our roles, counselors should enjoy helping others and possess specific attributes and skills. Counselors today are working with increasingly diverse populations that have diverse sets of needs. Improving a solid set of essential skills is required for an effective and successful mental health practitioner.

1-Multicultural Counseling Competencies:

– Culturally competent counselors have to be aware and sensitive to their own cultural heritage and to valuing and respecting differences.

– Culturally competent counselors are aware of how their own cultural background and experiences, attitudes, values, and biases influence psychological processes.

– Culturally competent counselors are able to recognize the limits of their competencies and expertise.

– Culturally competent counselors seek out educational, consultative, and training experiences to enrich their understanding and effectiveness in working with culturally different populations. Being able to recognize the limits of their competencies

2- American Counseling Association (ACA) Advocacy Competencies

In direct interventions with clients and students, the advocacy-oriented counselor is able to:

– Identify the strengths and resources that clients/students bring to the counseling process.

– Identify the social, political, economic, and cultural factors that affect the client/student.

– Recognize the signs indicating that an individual’s behaviors and concerns reflect responses to systemic or internalized oppression.

– Advocacy is integral to the counseling process. When counselors become aware of external factors that act as barriers to an individual’s development, they may choose to respond through advocacy.

3- Competencies for Counseling Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Clients

Competent counselors will:

-Understand that biological, familial, and psychosocial factors influence the course of development of LGBT orientations and transgendered identities.

– Identify the heterosexist assumptions inherent in current lifespan development theories and account for this bias in assessment procedures and counseling practices.

– Recognize that identity formation and stigma management are ongoing developmental tasks that span the lives of LGBT persons.

– Acknowledge that heterosexism is a worldview and value system that may undermine the healthy functioning of the sexual orientations, gender identities, and behaviors of LGBT persons.

– Understand that heterosexism pervades the social and cultural foundations of many institutions and traditions and may foster negative attitudes toward LGBT persons.

4- Advocacy Competencies Self-Assessment Survey.

– Self-assessments or self-evaluations survey allow you to self-reflect and consider your strengths and weaknesses. Respondents can gain insight that helps them improve in any setting needed.

After reading the chapter I concluded that I needs to learn and practices more in my Analytical and research skills. I need take the time to analyze the situation more deeply and think of all possible scenario. Being analytical, but also having strong research skills it very important for me. It demonstrates my determination, my ability to assess different scenarios, and my commitment to be sure before giving an answer to my patients. Moreover, an ability to manage multiple assignments at the same time, and being flexible enough to work under ever changing conditions, management, environment and rules is highly appreciated for me and is another setting that I need improvers my skills.

    • Introduction
      An introduction provides some background information so that readers understand the issue. It explains why the issue is important. It also describes what is known about the issue. Additionally, the introduction states what is needed to find out or what action needs to be taken and why. Finally, it presents how the writer plan to do the project.
    • What is a PICOT Question?
      A PICOT Question is a question that is formatted in an accepted format, and used to develop answerable, researchable questions, especially in nursing. PICOT question mainly answers four main areas including population, intervention, control, outcome, and time.
    • Formulating a PICOT Question
      To formulate a PICOT question, there are three critical elements that should be addressed. The three elements include population, the proposed intervention, the control to compare with the intervention, the expected outcome, and the time within which the intervention will be considered.

      • For example:
        In women of age 60 and above at risk of developing osteoporosis, is educations and medication for one year effective in reducing the complication of osteoporosis compared to none?

        • In the example given above, the question breaks down as follows: 
          • Population – Women of age 60 and above
          • Intervention – Education and medication
          • Control – None, which means there is no intervention
          • Outcome – Reducing the complications of osteoporosis
          • Time – One year

China has had some changes to its market operations due to what authority terms as an economy slumping faster than the government and officials had anticipated (Wei, 2015). Despite China having an enormous trade surplus that can support its economy, it seems this was a plot to improve its competitive position globally. Its exports levels had deteriorated, and by 2016, there was a prediction that domestic product growth will slow from 6.9 percent in 2015 to 6.5 percent (Bloomberg, 2016a). To lift export growth by 10 percent in 2016, China would require a 13 percent drop in their Yuan on a trade-weighted basis to restore their standard ratings (Bloomberg, 2016a).

The nation’s foreign exchange reserves slid more than forecast in December 2015, capping their first ever annual decline (Bloomberg, 2016b). China’s stock market had experienced volatility of the highest level in 2016 with fluctuating market prices known as great China’s turbulence. According to Geraci (2016), a writer of The Conversation, China’s market started at a value of 3,350 in January 2015, rising to a peak of 5,178 in June, then falling to a low of 2,850 in August. It then rose again to 3,650 and has now retracted to 3,290. Devaluing their currency causes exports to be cheap and imports to be expensive. Other countries would face difficulties in exporting goods like Oil to China. (China is a significant Oil Consumer).

Such a high degree of turbulence would hurt emerging-market economies like Chile and Brazil who depend on China to buy copper and oil from their minefields. Since China is a major global economic game-changer, their weaker currency could lead to a possible recession since their economy worsens with every devaluation (Sabha, 2016). The Price of Crude Oil is likely to upsurge (Girard, 2019). Since China is a powerful country, there is nothing much that can be done on the issue. Naming China as a market manipulator will not encourage positive reforms. Therefore, I would facilitate economic communications between the US and China to restore equal competition.

The changing circumstances of economic markets has resulted in varying performances in currencies for different nations. The following assessment seeks to provide a better understanding on the performance of the yuan in present economic markets that had a notable decrease in value. The devaluation of the yuan is as a result of the decreasing performance of the economy that resulted in weak factory input, slumping demand from both local and international sources, and the falling prices. The onset of these economic situations resulted in the overall decrease in performance for the state-owned companies that had accrued debt in the market.

In January 2016, the nation was noted to have a rise in stock performance in the nation. The depreciation of local currency leads to the creation of a more competitive environment for industries, resulting to an overall increase in the exports made. This change in value leads to the overall rise in the stock prices in the region.

The depreciation of the value of the Yuan, was carried out as part of the economic reform to increase market viability in the region. The onset of the depreciation results in an overall increase in the competitiveness of local products. On the other hand, it results in the increase in value for importation from other nations, making them rather expensive to acquire. A case example of this deficit is the effect on the exportation capacity for Australia. Strained by the slow infrastructure growth in the region, the devaluation of the yuan has resulted in a lower performance record of the nation, resulting in lower exportation value (Christensen, 2021). The use of devaluation allows for the effector to have an overall increase in the value of local industries at the expense of importers in the region. As a result of this disparity, it necessitated the use of economic policies to find a possible balance of measure in the region.

If I were a US policy maker, I would seek to balance the disparity that is caused as a result of the devaluation of the yuan in the market. A probable measure that can be used in the balancing of this deficit is the use of quotas and tariffs on imported goods from the region. The following adjustment will cause a rise in the value of local products, allowing for the creation of an ideal environment for action by resident governments. The move will also seek to balance the trade deficit that has occurred as a result of the devaluation of the yuan. The lower dependence on imports from China will allow for the effected measures to serve a corrective feature, boosting overall performance of the market. Through these techniques, it will allow for the development of a balance in the economy.

Please create 5 Instructional (Behavioral) Objectives (IO) in the Cognitive Domain.  Each IO must be written at different grade level (Kindergarten through grade 12) and different content area as follows:

  • 1 Objective for Math
  • 1 Objective for Science
  • 1 Objective for English Language Arts
  • 1 Objective for Social Science (Core Subject: History/Civics/Government/Economics)
  • 1 Objective for an elective (Music/Art/Debate/Technology/World Language)

After you have developed your 4-part Instructional Objective in the mandatory format (Who – Condition – Behavioral/Performance Verb – Criteria), find a Florida Standard that aligns* with your objective. Copy and paste the Alpha-numeric label and the wording of the benchmark of the standard directly below your objectives.

  • The wording of your Instructional Objectives does not have to match the wording of the FL Standard  (Links to an external site.)— they only need to be related to each other. In most cases an Instructional Objective is a subset or part of the topic that is covered by the Standard.

At first, most teachers are challenged in the development of Instructional Objectives (IOs) that are reasonable in terms of the criteria (level/quality of student performance). Your criteria should correspond with the skill level of your students, as well as the complexity of the content being taught in the lesson. In addition, the criteria must align with the nature of the task or the behavior. If a student is going to read the hour on an analog clock for the first time, a reasonable measure (the criteria is indicated by the bold-faced portion of the IO) might be:

The student, after an explanation on reading the whole hour on an analog clock, will correctly read the hour on an analog clock at least one out of two times for each of 10 rounds.

This means that after the explanation, the teacher will present the student with an image that has the faces of two clocks. Each clock will depict a whole hour, such as 8 o’clock or 2 o’clock. For each set of clocks shown, the student will read at least one of the whole hours correctly. The student will have 10 pairs of clocks to read.

Please see the attachment for more examples of Instructional (Behavioral) Objectives in the cognitive domain. Please take note of the criteria in each case as well as the Florida Standard that aligns with each objective. Please be sure to indicate the alpha-numeric code and the verbiage of each of your standards as demonstrated in the attached file of sample instructional/behavioral objectives.

Discussion Topic #6 – Chapter 5 – Developmental/Preventive Interventions

(300 words minimum for main posting with 200 word replies)

Chapter 5 addresses prevention strategies for mental health challenges. Some of the strategies presented are broad based and are considered “primary prevention”, or interventions that take place before a problem occurs. The chapter illustrates four major interventions: stress management programs (p. 133); health and wellness interventions (p. 139); parenting and family-focused programs (p. 143), and life skills training (p. 145).

For this discussion:

Describe the four interventions and their goals

Briefly discuss which one you would choose, and why, if you only had funding for the creation of a program focusing on only one of the four strategies

Minimum 300 word posting with 200 word replies to two classmates

In Chapter 5: Developmental/Preventive Interventions, we learned about the 4 major interventions and their goals. The 1st intervention is stress management interventions which emphasizes in examining the stressors in the individuals lives. Individuals should change the environment, change the cognitive response to stress, change their lifestyle and should change physiological responses to stress. Changing the environment means that people can lower stress by learning to control their environment effectively. How? Controlling environmental stressors by developing and implementing problem-solving, time management, and interpersonal skills in their daily lives. By the other hand, changing cognitive response to stress means that individual learn stress management skills and techniques, so they can control more the way they react to environmental situations. Moreover, in order to prevent stress individuals should maintain a healthy lifestyle. Counselors should educate the client in strategies and psychoeducational intervention so they can learn to change their lifestyle. For example: weight reduction, healthy nutrition, conflict resolution classes, etc. Is also, important counselors teach individuals how to change their physiological response to stress, because we can’t control the environmental factor but we can learn how to intervene at the physiological level of the stress response. By learning techniques of relaxation training, mental imagery and meditation, people can learn to response and manage better their stress, which that is the main goal for this intervention.

           The 2nd intervention is health promotion/wellness program which emphasizes that client develop new attitudes and behaviors that improve their wellness. The main focus (goal) on this intervention is helping people adapt to immediate health concerns, preventing longer term effect on mental and physical health, helping people develop attitudes thar foster an orientation toward personal wellness and helping people learn how to implement behaviors associated with optimal levels of health and well-being. The 3rd intervention is focused on parenting and family programs due to the importance of family life in our healthy development and preventing new problems.  Parenting programs, have an impact on child development, affecting the stability of their life and all family members, which is the main goal for this intervention. The 4th intervention is life skills training which emphasizes in how we react to our challenges, conflicts, confusions and difficulties. How we react can affect our physical and psychological wellbeing. Obtaining life skills are important in how we face our challenges and stressful times.

           If I have to select one, I would choose stress management intervention. We are surrounded by so much stress. At home, at work, family situations, external situations, internal situations, problems here and problems there. We need to learn how to manage stress in the most effective way. Stress can harm us physically and emotionally. I believe society, doesn’t pay much attention in creating programs to help individuals managing stress, something so common as stress and people doesn’t talk a lot about it. What do you guys think about this?

Stress Management Programs

Stress issues stem from a combination of individual perceptions, cultural factors, external pressures, and bodily responses (somaticizing happens to me all the time, for example.) As counselors we can help our clients to learn how to best handle stress, in different ways that work for them.

Goals of the Stress Management Programs:

  1. Acting against the stressor by changing their environment (creating problem-solving, time management, and interpersonal competences as well as ensuring they have a strong social support system (as we discussed in previous discussions, the importance of dedicated support systems!) in place).
  2. Making lifestyle modifications (preserving a healthy lifestyle).
  3. Learning how to alter one’s physiological responses to stress (using different techniques like biofeedback training, relaxation exercises, visualization, self-hypnosis, and meditation).
  4. Correcting one’s cognitive responses to the stressor (reframing the way they think about their life stressors).

Health Promotion and Wellness Interventions

It is known that many health issues can be prevented by developing innovative approaches and behaviors that enhance and promote their mind, body, and spirit and overall well-being. Additionally, preventative, and informative programs (whether it be in the schools, community agencies, or hospitals) can affect vast numbers of people. These health promotion programs designed to promote “optimal functioning” are helpful because they create a deeper understanding of wellness, clients can really tune in to their own power to prevent illness through personal resourcefulness, and inspiring clients to take accountability for meeting their own health needs.

Goals of the Health Promotion and Wellness Interventions Programs:

  1. Helping people address immediate health matters so that long term effects on mental and physical health can be avoided.
  2. Helping people improve attitudes that foster an orientation toward personal wellness.
  3. Helping people learn how to implement behaviors associated with optimal levels of health and well-being.

Parenting and Family-Focused Programs

The context of family life plays a huge role in facilitating healthy development and averting new problems. Parenting programs and preventative tactics obviously have major impacts on child development (another ode to Human Growth and Development! ?), but they also have a major impact on the whole family system as well. Strong developmental and preventative programs with life skill training at its core yields healthy parents, which in turn can help yield healthy children. That is the name of the game!

Goals of the Parenting and Family-Focused Programs:

1. To enhance relationships through strong and healthy communication, life, and situational problem-solving skills, and to preserve constructive connections and opportunities.

2. To boost family resilience and prevent substance and/or other types of abuse.

3. To maintain open and effective lines of communication between parents and their children (who could be at-risk of developing substance abuse, behavioral and/or delinquency, and academic issues).

Life Skills Training Programs

The life skills training approach is rooted in prevention in both theory and practice. According to our textbook, “researchers have noted that the emphasis on the prevention and the development of personal competencies—the core of most life skills training programs—has substantially enhanced the successful adjustment and personal satisfaction of people of diverse backgrounds and ages (Albee, Bond, & Monsey, 1992; Albee & Ryn-Finn, 1993; Bond & Compas, 1989; Commission on Prevention of Mental/Emotional Disorders, 1987; Salzman & D’Andrea, 2001).”

Goals of the Life Skills Training Programs:

  1. To promote intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies.
  2. To foster life, social and problem-solving skills of individuals.
  3. To encourage psychological skills as well as healthy social behaviors of children and adolescents (as we have learned, the earlier the promotion of well-being and the prevention/intervention of unhealthy coping mechanisms, the better!).
  4. To promote a deeper understanding of one’s own role within possible systemic oppression (another throwback to an earlier post regarding oppression and the importance of understanding how it affects one’s life in all aspects) through the development of critical thinking strategies.

Let me make it clear that I would choose all four of these programs if the funding were there. I believe all four are crucial and can all complement the other. However, as we have learned in this class and in life, there is little funding to go around (especially when it comes to mental and physical well-being, early prevention, etc.) and so if I had to choose just one, it would be the Stress Management Program. I chose this one because it encompasses all the facets needed to promote emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental wellness. By focusing on stress management, the domino effects can be very optimal and rewarding. By integrating a healthy lifestyle, using different techniques to alter our physiological response to stress, and reframing the way we view and handle life stressors, we can drastically not only improve our lives, but the lives of those around us, including the little ones who look up to us as role models.
