2 part Discussion Question for these stories.

Part 1 . Im going attach the files

Using Herr’s “Breathing In,” and using Chapter 15 of “On Closer Examination,” please answer these questions: What is the central conflict? Which side–if any–does the text seem to favor? What’s your evidence? How might others interpret the evidence differently? What’s your opinion of the text? (Questions are also on p. 192).

Part 2

Using the book Hillbilly Elegy Book by J. D. Vance

Toward the end of Chapter 5, we’re told about an intense and pivotal moment in Vance’s life. After some build up, he is in a car with his his emotionally volatile mother and she threatens to kill him. Scared, he runs away from her and ends up at a stranger’s house; thanks to the quick thinking of that stranger, the police arrest his mother.

Yet during the court hearing for his mother’s case, Mamaw tells Vance to tell the judge that his mother never threatened him. By lying to the judge, Vance will keep his mother out of jail. He does this, and his mother is freed.

Why does Vance feel so dedicated to his mother? She tried to kill him, and it seems like he was genuinely afraid for his life, yet he says the words to set her free. Or does Vance do this reluctantly, and only because Mamaw told him to lie? And do you see any connection between this incident and Mamaw teaching him to fight? Did Mamaw let her grandson down at a crucial moment, or is Vance’s willingness to lie so his mother won’t go to jail just another example of hillbilly values and placing family above all? Be sure to use examples from the text to support your answer.

3 Questions about ethical issues and ways to solve them

Here are the Questions:

Question 1

Identify an ethical issue that has occurred in the business world. Imagine that you believe in utilitarianism as the best model for solving ethical dilemmas. Briefly discuss the issue – just enough so that your instructor understands the issue. Then discuss how you, as a utilitarian, would address the issue. Does this ethical model lead to appropriate remedies to the issue? (300-400 words)

Question 2

Identify an ethical issue that has occurred in the business world. Imagine that you believe in deontology (Kantian ethics) as the best model for solving ethical dilemmas. Briefly discuss the issue – just enough so that your instructor understands the issue. Then discuss how you, as a proponent of Kantian ethics, would address the issue. Does this ethical model lead to appropriate remedies to the issue?

(300-400 words)

Question 3

Based on your critique and comparison of various ethical models throughout the semester, especially in Journals 6 and 11, discuss the ethical model that best represents your approach to solving ethical problems. Your model should be tailored to your own beliefs and values.

Do you think that your model will be helpful as you face different types of ethical issues (e.g. with supervisors, employees, peers, customers/clients; external stakeholders)? Is there any type of issue for which your model might not be a resource for you?

(400-500 words)


Social, Ethical and Legal Implications

Purpose of Assignment

The purpose of this assignment is to help students think through the importance of social, legal, and ethical issues that may arise with their product or service and the implications of decisions made within those frameworks. It is designed to help the learners understand ethical and legal issues related to marketing practices.

Kristee post, unethical environmental issues, the Perdue farms definitely have a few worth discussing

reply to post in 200 words or more.

On the topic of unethical environmental issues, the Perdue farms definitely have a few worth discussing. Especially since whether we agree or disagree, we could all be affected. Since these issues affect the environment and community in a negative way, we see characteristics of socialism. The reason these issues continue to be an issue is because of profit. When it comes to Government interaction, there is a Clean Air Act and its “regulatory twin” the Clean Water Act to help control water and air pollution. However, these “concentrated animal feeding operations” have been known to escape these regulations.

Although the Environmental Protection Agency could do a lot more to help regulate these large farms, it is ultimately the moral responsibility of each company. Because of the large numbers it is hard for the EPA to keep up. The companies are well aware of the number because they have to keep up with their profit. The animals are creating large amounts of ‘raw waste” that have been linked to air and water pollution. In fact, the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization finds the livestock sector to be “one of the top two or three most significant contributors to the most serious environmental problems” worldwide. Since 2002, at least 68 government-sponsored or peer-reviewed studies have been completed that examined air and water quality issues associated with animal feeding operations and 15 have directly linked air and water pollutants from animal waste to specific health or environmental impacts. Deontology is the theory that moral standards are grounded in instinctiverational obligations that we have. When it comes to major farms like the Perdue farm, it is their moral obligation-duty to protect our air and water. For them to be careless with this responsibility is unethical.

Do you think mastering technology, being innovative, or possessing high qualifications will automatically make you a leader? It will definitely help you acquire a leadership position in an organization, but it may not necessarily make you asuccessful leader. To be successful, you need to be aware of the strategic issues of the organization. You also need to know what should be changed for the improvement of the organization.

This week, you will learn about the forces driving organizational change and the roles and responsibilities of leaders or managers of organizational change. You will also learn about the various elements of the strategic process of an organization and the flaws in this process.

Group Case Study Project – Week 4


Suppose you want to bring about a change in your organization. Do you really know how to go about making that change? You may use some type of strategy to convey the change process. You may also focus on the impact of the change and how it will benefit the organization. However, some employees might resist this change, so you need to have a backup plan to convince these employees.

Read the following case:

Groth, T. (2003). Revolution at Oticon A/S (A): Vision for a change-competent organization. In T. D. Jick & M. A. Peiperl (Eds.), Managing change: Cases and concepts (2nd ed., pp. 268 – 280). Boston: Irwin/McGraw Hill.
ISBN 0-25-626458-9.

For this Group Case Study Project, you will be assigned to a team of 3 – 5 members. Group work should be conducted within each group’s designated Group Discussion area.

In your initial posting, please address the following as a group:

  • Read and discuss the case.
  • Analyze the change effort using Nadler’s integrated change agenda – values, governance, operating environment, operational performance, organization, strategy, and purpose.
  • Include any other important components you believe should be part of a complete case analysis.
  • Make a team recommendation on how Lars Kolind should proceed, given the resistance he is facing.

With these thoughts in mind:

Conditions Communication Strategy – Starbucks Coffee Company

As a marketing consultant, you will need to advise clients on the development of a communication strategy that has contingencies to address situations such as the one presented in the scenario. This project is designed to help you understand the types of strategies that can be adopted and address the various audiences you will encounter.

Milestone Two Scenario

An overseas contractor that is a major supplier to your chosen company has recently revealed as one that operates with poor working conditions for employees (uses child labor, pays low wages, requires long hours, no benefits, etc.).

Examples of each type of corporate communication:

  • Informational Example: When a new product is launched, the public will know nothing about it. Consider the situation when Apple launched the iPad, a totally new class of technology. In order to generate interest, the company first had to tell people about the product.
  • Educational Example: Once the target audience is aware of the new product, they often need to be educated as to why the product could be useful to them.
  • Persuasive Example: Once a new product has become successful, it is highly likely competitors will have entered the market. Communication therefore needs to persuade the target audience to purchase the version that the corporation provides rather a competitor’s version.

For the assignment, the following critical elements must be addressed:

  • Communication Context: Provide an overview of the scenario that your communication strategy will address, in the context of the company you have selected for your final project. (Company selected: Starbucks Coffee Company)
  • Communication Need: Considering both internal and external audiences, explain the stakeholder management issue(s) that must be addressed due to this scenario. What specifically caused the need for the identified communications?
  • Internal Communication:
  • External Communication:
  • Conditions Communication Strategy: Summarize the communication strategy utilized to address this scenario. Why was it the best approach for this scenario? What alternative strategies did you consider, and why was your approach the best option? Provide justification to support your communication strategy.
  • Explain the type of internal communication and the purpose for the internal communication that you have chosen (i.e., informational, educational, and/or persuasive). Detail your process for selecting the type of communication that will address the scenario. Provide justification as to why the chosen strategy is appropriate for the scenario.
  • Identify the intended target audiences for the internal communication, and then explain why they have been selected as the target audience. Provide justification for selected the identified target audience.
  • Develop a draft communication that could be sent to the identified internal target audience addressing this scenario. Ensure that the appropriate tone and message are communicated in your draft communication.
  • Explain the type of external communication and the purpose for the external communication that you have chosen (i.e., informational, educational, and/or persuasive). Detail your process for selected the type of communication that will address the scenario. Provide justification as to why the chosen strategy is appropriate for the scenario.
  • Identify the intended target audience for the external communication, and then explain why they have been selected as the target audience. Provide justification for selecting the identified target audience.
  • Develop a draft communication that could be sent to the identified external target audience addressing this scenario. Ensure that the appropriate tone and message are communicated in your draft communication.

Social Media Hinders Interpersonal Relationships, philosophy homework help

Topic: Social Media Hinders Interpersonal Relationships. NO PLAGIARISM! WILL CHECK!! MUST HAVE ACCESS TO ASHFORD LIBRARY. This final assignment is designed to involve all of the main skills that you have learned during this course. In particular, your paper should demonstrate the ability to construct a deductively valid or inductively strong argument, clearly and accurately explain your reasoning, use high-quality academic sources to support the premises of your argument, fairly and honestly evaluate contrary arguments and objections, and identify fallacies and biases that occur within the arguments or objections presented.
You will continue to build on the arguments that you are presented in your previous two papers. In particular,, you will present a final improved version of your argument for your thesis that you begin for the Week One Assignment and fully address the objection that you developed for your Week Three Assignment. You will need to research a minimum of three scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library. (For further information about discovering and including scholarly research, take a look at the FindIt@AU Tutorial instructional resource.)
Write: in your paper
Explain the topic you are addressing and your position on it. Provide a preview of your paper and a statement of your thesis in your opening paragraph. [Approximately 100 words]
For help crafting a good thesis statement, go to the Ashford Writing Center.
Present your main argument for your thesis in standard form, with each premise and the conclusion on a separate line. Clearly indicate whether your argument is intended to be inductive or deductive. Follow up the presentation of your argument by clarifying the meaning of any premises that could use some explanation. [About 150 words]
If your argument is deductive, then it should be valid (in the strict logical sense of the word); if it is inductive, then it should be strong. Make sure to avoid committing logical fallacies within your argument (e.g., begging the question). Additionally, the premises should be true, to the best of your knowledge. If one of your premises has a pretty obvious counter-example, then you should either fix the argument so that it does not have this flaw, or later, in your paper (steps three through five) you should address the apparent counter-example (showing that it does not really refute the truth of your premise). Arguments that are not valid, not very strong, commit fallacies, or that have counter-examples that are not adequately addressed will not receive full credit.
Provide supporting evidence for the premises of your argument. [Approximately 350 words]
Pay special attention to those premises that could be seen as controversial. Evidence may include academic research sources, supporting arguments (arguments whose conclusions are premises of the main argument), or other ways of demonstrating the truth of those premises. This section should include at least one scholarly research source.
Explain a strong objection to your argument. [Approximately 250 words]
Study what people on the other side of this question think about your reasoning and present the best possible objection that someone could have to your argument. Do not commit the straw man fallacy here. Reference at least one scholarlyresearch source. See the “Practicing Effective Criticism” section of Chapter 9 of the course text for more information.
Defend your argument against the objection. [Approximately 200 words]
Once you have presented the objection, indicate clearly how you might respond to it. It is acceptable to admit that reasonable people might disagree with you or that there might be an area in which your argument could be further strengthened, but you should do your best to explain why your argument is sound or cogent despite the objections.
Provide an appropriate conclusion. [Approximately 75 words]
For guidance about how to develop a conclusion see the Introductions and Conclusion resource from the Ashford Writing Center. The Final Argument Paper
Must be 1,100 to 1,400 words in length, double-spaced, (not including the title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Must include a separate title page with the following:
Title of paper
Student’s name
Course name and number
Instructor’s name
Date submitted
Must use at least three scholarly sources in addition to the course text.
The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. If you have questions about whether a specific source is appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific source for a particular assignment.
Must document all sources in APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (for more information about how to create an APA reference list see the Ashford Writing Center APA References List webpage).
Must include a separate references page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
