According to John Locke, how does a human being at the beginning of history make a part of the earth his or her private property


.
Essay
As we have discussed in class, the sinners in Hell (The Inferno) are there forever, unlike those in Purgatory, and they are punished so severely because while alive they were insufficiently contrite; that is, they never repented for their sins. God shows them, therefore, no mercy. Nonetheless, are there any sinners or is there any one sinner that you feel any sympathy for? If so, explain why. If not, tell me why.
…….

Note: Do not use secondary sources. Other than the book THE INFERNO by Dante Alighieri. I can provide you with any pages if u need to. It is an explication de text showing understanding (in your own words) of what you have read and discussed in class.
If possible this is a separate assignment for the same class. In (one paragraph) explain: Question: According to John Locke, how does a human being at the beginning of history make a part of the earth his or her private property?

Rosenfeld, Deckard, & Blackburn, 2014


.
For this assignment you will be presented with an empirical study (Rosenfeld, Deckard, & Blackburn, 2014) and you will have to read through the article to describe the design and interpret the results. Specifically, I would like you to include the following pieces of information.
1. Research Design Elements: In bullet point format, please identify…
a. The Research Question(s)
b. The Independent Variable
c. The Dependent Variable
d. The Units of Analysis
2. Explain the Design: This design utilizes a randomized experiment. I would like you to add to this information by outlining the following…
a. Briefly, what are the experimental conditions? (i.e., describe to me what each group “gets” as part of the treatment package).
b. Diagram what you believe the experiment looks like in Cook and Campbell notation. For instance, a randomized experiment with a pre-test and a post-test looks like…
R O1 X O2
R O1 O2
This notation can be created by using the tab key and center alignment in an application like MS Word.
3. Random Assignment: Complete the assignment by describing the following…
a. Interpret the findings (i.e., did the treatment work as expected?).
b. Briefly explain the relevance of random assignment to the findings (i.e., because the treatment was randomly assigned, how should we feel about the internal validity of this study’s claims?)

organizational behavior model


.
Topic

Paper details 
At this point in the course, you have many things to keep in your mind about organizational behavior. Chapter 14 addresses job design to the organizational behavior model.
As Chapter 14 implies, models are often oversimplified and leave out the complicating factor of individual differences (refer back to Figure 3.1 on page 83). Herzberg pointed out that not every job or person is a fit for enrichment. Businesses and their strategies differ and the kinds of skills, procedures, and behavior required on the factory floor is quite different from those required for a leading-edge design shop. In addition, people with the same abilities and personalities may be at different levels in terms of satisfying their needs (e.g., Maslow’s hierarchy). It should be no surprise to you that both job and organizational design are situational and interdependent with many other concepts involved in the “management of human energy.”
1. In either designing the job, or in hiring to fill the job, does your organization consider any of the individual factors that might influence success? Explain your answer and consider the following factors:
– Cultural differences in the people (Chapters 1 and 2)
– Personality factors like MBTI type, conscientiousness, locus of control, and hardiness
– Where a person is in satisfying their higher- and lower-level needs (Chapter 5)
2. In your organization, are there any jobs that appear to have been successfully designed (either initially or as they have “evolved”) using ideas like those described in the textbook? Anchor your comments in the achievement of the three critical states described on page 525, and in the achievement of “engagement” as described on pages 526-527.
3. How would you describe the organization you work for on each of the basic design dimensions (pages 557-558)? What changes in these dimensions have you seen in your organization due to pressures for improved cost/effectiveness or to meet other changes in the environment/competition?

Personality Case Study


.
The goal of this paper is to identify the primary forces that shaped a particular individual’s personality. Your analysis must draw from at least two of the personality perspectives studied in this course (psychoanalytic, humanistic, trait, cognitive, behavioral/social/ biological) thus allowing you the opportunity to synthesize multiple viewpoints into a comprehensive analysis.
This assignment will enable you to practice applying the personality theories you have been studying to a particular person, real or fictional. Begin by identifying one or more aspects of that person that sets him or her apart—qualities that make that individual unique. Then consider how the different perspectives or schools of thought might interpret the trait in question. For example, you may want to ask yourself: “How would a Behaviorist (Freudian, etc.) describe the key reasons why this person acts the way he or she does? What sort of explanations would they look for?” You may find it helpful to focus on a particular theorist (e.g., Carl Rogers) rather than a more general school of thought (e.g., Humanist).
It is recommended that you comb through the information you have about your case study, looking for clues about important formative event. Remember, there are no right or wrong answers to an assignment like this (though some answers are better supported by evidence than others (hint hint!)) Be sure to cite specific examples or observations to support your conclusions wherever possible.
Selecting a Case Study:
Choose an individual for your personality analysis from one of the following sources: novels, biographies, movies (e.g., Shine, Ordinary People), or personal contacts (self-analysis is permitted). When picking a subject for your case study, keep in mind that you will need sufficiently detailed information about that person’s life history to be able to piece together a meaningful analysis of the primary influences on his or her personality. Many movies do not go into enough detail to be appropriate. Be sure that your source(s) provides enough information for you to be able to conduct the analysis. Also, please keep in mind that certain perspectives require specific information about the individual (e.g., if you want to do a Cognitive analysis you will need to have some idea of how the person thinks). Please check with your instructor if you have any questions.
Hints:
Use relevant terminology wherever possible.
Be sure to demonstrate a thorough understanding of the perspectives you employ.
Cite specific examples or observations to support your conclusions wherever possible.
Grading Standards:
“A” Work:
Provides adequate supporting arguments, evidence, examples, and details (35 points.);

Respiratory Alterations


.

Paper details 
Respiratory Alterations
In clinical settings, patients often present with various respiratory symptoms such as congestion, coughing, and wheezing. While identifying a symptom’s underlying illness can be challenging, it is essential because even basic symptoms such as persistent coughing can be a sign of a more severe disorder. Advanced practice nurses must be able to differentiate between moderate and severe respiratory disorders, as well as properly diagnose and prescribe treatment for their patients. For this reason, you must have an understanding of the pathophysiology of respiratory disorders.

Consider the following three scenarios:
Scenario 1:
Ms. Teel brings in her 7-month-old infant for evaluation. She is afraid that the baby might have respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) because she seems to be coughing a lot, and Ms. Teel heard that RSV is a common condition for infants. A detailed patient history reveals that the infant has been coughing consistently for several months. It’s never seemed all that bad. Ms. Teel thought it was just a normal thing, but then she read about RSV. Closer evaluation indicates that the infant coughs mostly at night; and, in fact, most nights the baby coughs to some extent. Additionally, Ms. Teel confirms that the infant seems to cough more when she cries. Physical examination reveals an apparently healthy age- and weight-appropriate, 7-month-old infant with breath sounds that are clear to auscultation. The infant’s medical history is significant only for eczema that was actually quite bad a few months back. Otherwise, the only remarkable history is an allergic reaction to amoxicillin that she experienced 3 months ago when she had an ear infection.
Scenario 2:
Kevin is a 6-year-old boy who is brought in for evaluation by his parents. The parents are concerned that he has a really deep cough that he just can’t seem to get over. The history reveals that he was in his usual state of good health until approximately 1 week ago when he developed a profound cough. His parents say that it is deep and sounds like he is barking. He coughs so hard that sometimes he actually vomits. The cough is productive for mucus, but there is no blood in it. Kevin has had a low-grade temperature but nothing really high. His parents do not have a thermometer and don’t know for sure how high it got. His past medical history is negative. He has never had childhood asthma or RSV. His mother says that they moved around a lot in his first 2 years and she is not sure that his immunizations are up to date. She does not have a current vaccination record.
Scenario 3:
Maria is a 36-year-old who presents for evaluation of a cough. She is normally a healthy young lady with no significant medical history. She takes no medications and does not smoke. She reports that she was in her usual state of good health until approximately 3 weeks ago when she developed a “really bad cold.” The cold is characterized by a profound, deep, mucus-producing cough. She denies any rhinorrhea or rhinitis—the primary problem is the cough. She develops these coughing fits that are prolonged, very deep, and productive of a lot of green sputum. She hasn’t had any fever but does have a scratchy throat. Maria has tried over-the-counter cough medicines but has not had much relief. The cough keeps her awake at night and sometimes gets so bad that she gags and dry heaves.
To prepare:
• Review the three scenarios, as well as Chapter 26 and Chapter 27 in the Huether and McCance text.
• Select one of the scenarios and consider the respiratory disorder and underlying alteration associated with the type of cough described.
• Identify the pathophysiology of the alteration that you associated with the cough.
• Select two of the following factors: genetics, gender, ethnicity, age, or behavior. Reflect on how the factors you selected might impact the disorder.
Post a description of the disorder and underlying respiratory alteration associated with the type of cough in your selected scenario. Then, explain the pathophysiology of the respiratory alteration. Finally, explain how the factors you selected might impact the disorder.

.

Paper details 
1) Explain the different rules and approaches taken by judges when interpreting an Act of Parliament, giving examples from case law, and critically analyse their advantages and disadvantages.
With regard to questions, the guidelines are about how the essay should be structured. It applies for both Question 1 and 2.
Section 1′ is about describing the issue in the question, referring the formal terms and giving an indication of historical change. ‘Section 2′ is about analysing and arguing the issue referring to case law examples.
So whether you choose Question 1 or 2, the structure of the essay should be the same. This will help you achieve clarity and argumentation, which is how we will mark the essay.
Introduction (200-250)
• Statement of what you will be doing in the essay
• Indication of direction of argument
Section 1
• Detailed description of issue
• Refer to formal terms used in particular issue
• Any indication of historical change
Section 2
• Analysis of issue
• Present both sides of the case, but with critical awareness of which side you are on
• Refer to law case studies to substantiate your claims
Conclusion (200 max)
• Concluding remarks in your own words
• Suggestions for improvements, etc.
ALSO IMPORTANT TO KNOW TO RECEIVE HIGHER MARK:
20) Argument (use subheading-title)+ STRUCTURE, CONTENT, CRITISIM, ACCURACY AND REFERENCES
21) TOTALLY 20 REFERENCES AT THE END, INCLUDE REFERENCES IN TEXT PLEASE, NOT NEEDS REFERENCES IN INTRODUCTION AND CONCLUSION !
22) Write about Advantages and disadvantages
23) Use- formal terms
24) Critical analysis
25) How many cases? – The answer is- 6 cases – Refer and brief introduction
26) OSCOLA Quick Reference Guide -– which will be provided as an example.
27) elaw recourses can be for help – httpss://www.e-lawresources.co.uk/

.
Assume that a company has $20 million in revenue and its cost of goods sold is 70% of its sales. Additionally, the firm has $3 million of inventories, $2 million in payables, and $2 million in receivables. What’s the firm’s cash conversion cycle (CCC)? What does this indicate? Do you think that the company should improve its CCC? If so, what are some ways that it can do that? If not, why do you think that’s the case?
Part II
Assume that a firm has a payables deferral period of 40 days, an inventory conversion period of 62 days, and an average collection period of 29 days.
What’s the firm’s cash conversion cycle?
Assume that all of the firm’s sales are on credit. If the firm has annual sales of $4 million, what’s the accounts receivable investment
How many times a year will the firm turn over its inventory?
Assignment Expectations
You are expected to:
Describe the purpose of the report and provide a conclusion. An introduction and a conclusion are important because many busy individuals in the business environment may only read the first and the last paragraph. If those paragraphs are not interesting, they never read the body of the paper.
Answer the Case Assignment question(s) clearly and provide necessary details.
Write clearly and correctly—that is, no poor sentence structure, no spelling and grammar mistakes, and no run-on sentences.
Provide citations to support your argument and references on a separate page. (All the sources that you listed in the references section must be cited in the paper.) Use APA format to provide citations and references.
Type and double-space the paper.
Whenever appropriate, please use Excel to show supporting computations in an appendix, present financial information in tables, and use the data computed to answer follow-up questions. In finance, in addition to being able to write well, it’s important to present information in a professional manner and to analyze financial information. This is part of the assignment expectations and will be considered for grading purposes.
