You are the chief executive officer of a  350-bed community hospital in the Midwest. You have 42 full-time active  medical staff members and 57 courtesy medical staff members. These  doctors certainly think and act differently than the managers on your  staff, but you must work closely with them, and you must lead them to  participate in the hospital’s strategic plan. Your success depends upon  this. How will you lead physicians most effectively? What can you do to  achieve effective leadership and engagement of physicians? Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.

respond to the following: An important step in developing a projected (pro forma) income statement is to create a sales forecast and calculate anticipated revenue for the business. Imagine you are creating a business: develop a sales forecast and estimate revenue for the first year of operation, and describe the process you used to arrive at your estimates. The three (3) primary causes of cash flow problems in a business are accounts receivable, accounts payable, and inventory. Imagine you are creating a business: identify one (1) cause of cash flow problems that you believe will be the most challenging for your company. Next, discuss the strategies you will use to mitigate problems in this area. Use the Internet or Library to research a company that had a change in accounting principles within the past five (5) years. Discuss the accounting principles that the identified company changed and explain the major reasons why the company changed accounting principles. Give your opinion on whether you believe the change in accounting principles was motivated by an attempt to provide more useful information or to make financial results look better to investors and creditors. Provide a rationale for your response. Purchase the answer to view it

1. How do you rate your own team’s proposal presentation? Did it go well? Was there any improvement that could be made? How can you do better next time? 2. An important activity during the project planning phase we didn’t talk about is risk management. In risk management, we try to identify and deal with anything that might pose a threat to the successful completion of the project. In doing so, we hope to either reduce the probability that the problem will occur, or to reduce the impact on the project if it does occur.  Identify three “high-threat” potential problems for your upcoming project; for each problem, discuss how this problem can be prevented, and propose an action to be taken if the problem does occur, that would mitigate its effect and bring the project back on track. 3. With the project construction weeks coming up, your team needs to take charge of how to utilize the lab time. The in-lab time is like a team meeting. Read Textbook Chapter 6 Section “Team Meetings” on page 45-47, summarize at least five things that your team should do to make the lab time more productive, to ensure the successful completion of your project. 4. Summarize at least three skills you learned since the midterm reflection ePortfolio. Discuss how they could benefit you in future classes or you get an internship.

Assignment: 1. Select a famous speech to analyze. avoid some famous, but “overdone” speeches such as MLK’s “I Have a Dream”. Your choices are a compilation of several collections from (see below). American Rhetoric is an excellent resource for this assignment and hosts video clips and written transcripts of many popular movies. 2) Analyze your chosen speech as an argument and write an essay for it about the writer’s effectiveness considering the context in which, and audience to which they were delivered. Essay should identify and explain the rhetorical strategies the author deliberately chose while crafting the text. What makes the speech so remarkable? How did the author’s rhetoric evoke a response from the audience? Why are the words still recognized today? 3) Carefully consider the author’s deliberate manipulation of language. The thesis must be arguable and take language into account; it may not merely tout the general importance of the speech or the valiance of the speaker. 4) Stay focused on the speech as an argumentative text. There isn’t ample space in this essay to carefully detail every aspect of the historical context in which this speech falls. It’s critical to know about the events that led up to the speech, so it is probably necessary to include pertinent details. However, it is not useful to delineate, for example the specific events of the entire evolutionary War that preceded George Washington’s Inaugural Speech. 5) You will use at l in your body paragraphs to analyze your speech: . To develop and support your points, you will need to use specific evidence, in the form of examples and short quotes from your speech. Think of the rhetorical analysis as shining a spotlight on an important, hidden meaning in your movie speech and how it says something interesting about our culture today. Remember that the goal of this paper is argument and analysis. Any speech we cover in class is off limits for the papers.

write about 1 and half pages, will be in APA, just follow the instruction THANK YOU Your chapter readings this week speaks about policy and government agencies that are put in place to better protect the employees in any type of job. These are acronyms that we have all heard of but may not have any experience with: EEOC and OSHA. When I was thinking about the best way to deliver this content, my experience with the Wynn Resort & the Le Reve show came to mind. That was by far the most dangerous job I have ever had & safety was our mission for us and all others in the production everyday! This week we have a unique opportunity to share as former employees of the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas. I will discuss the show & the safety/OSHA standards and two of my colleagues will share their pregnancy discrimination case with us that has just settled after the last 7 years!! First, I will need to do some set up to you understand the job that myself and these ladies performed during our time at Le Reve Production at The Wynn Resort in Las Vegas. I will show a 4 minute video that will you understand the difficulties of our jobs as Scuba Diver Technicians. Then I will discuss the behind the scenes a bit and incorporate the OSHA standards and training we were a part of on a daily basis (approx 13 mins). We will then hear the stories from two divers who have just recently settled their case against the Wynn for Pregnancy Discrimination.

Hi, My professor says all my calculations are wrong. I have included two of my classmates calculations as guiuldelines. The answers seem to be correct but YOU NEED TO ENTER IT IN EXCEL USING THE EXCEL CALCULATOR. my professor wants to see that you know how to use excel to do calculations. If you downloand these documents, you ll see that the calculation has been done with excel. do your own calculations (answer should be the same as these ones listed), make sure your work does not look the same as these (use a different color or format or remove the highlighted parts, change the title— anything). Also the answers you use should with the paper. I could not get all of the answers  ( am not sure if the answer of part 1 or 3 of the assignment is in this excel but I have included a document that my professor said might wiht the calculations. My professors response is in orange. Show original message

There are 4 part for the project and the question may be long to read but it’s not a heavy work because there are many examples and explanations for the each parts. *Part 1.  The first part of this project requires that you implement a class that will be used to simulate a disk drive. The disk drive will have many blocks where each block has many bytes. The interface for the class should include : An explanation of the member functions follows : -figure 0 (what I attached below) : It is essential that your software satisfies the specifications. These will be the only functions (in your system) which physically access the Sdisk. that you must also write drivers to test and demonstrate your program. *Part 2.  The second part of this project requires that you implement a simple file system. In particular, you are going to write the software which which will handle dynamic file management. This part of the project will require you to implement the class along with member functions. In the description below, FAT refers to the and ROOT refers to the . The interface for the class should include : An explanation of the member functions follows : -figure 3 (what I attached below) *Part 3.   The third part of this project requires that you implement a simple shell that uses your file system. This part of the project will require you to implement the class along with member functions. The interface for the class should include : An explanation of the member functions follows : : See the figure 4  (what I attached below) for the function of Filesys. See the figure 5 (what I attached below) for function of Shell. See the figure 6 (what I attached below)  for program of Shell. *Part 4.  In this part of the project, you are going to create a database system with a single table which uses the file system from Project II. The input file will consist of records associated with Art History. The data file you will use as input consists of records with the following format: The data (180 records) is in date.txt file (what I attached below) In the data file, an asterisk is also used to delimit each field and the last character of each record is an asterisk. The width of any record is never greater than 120 bytes. Therefore you can block the data accordingly. This part of the project will require you to implement the following class: The member functions are specified as follows : See the figure 7 (what I attached below) for the program of Shell which includes a search command.

Write a short paper addressing the feasibility of your alternative strategic approach based on resources. Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:  List available resources. This does not have to be a comprehensive list, but consider the resources that you might have at your disposal for this program. This will require a bit of creative thought, but consider what is reasonably, typically available. For example, resources include people, money, and time. Assume that you have a staff and all the resources that would have been needed to create the original program, and then go from there. 1.Describe resources that are needed. 2.Are they all included in the list of available resources, or are there gaps?  3.Explain potential challenges in obtaining the needed resources. 4.If you have all your needed resources, are there any challenges in implementation? Your paper must be submitted as a 2- to 3-page (not including cover page and references) Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and at least three sources cited in APA format. NO PLAGIARISM!!!! Paper run through Turnitin app.

right at least 300 prefer 500 word discussion essay in MLA format For the week 3 discussion board, let’s focus on Kayla Webley’s essay Is Forgiving Student Loan Debt a Good Idea?” (This essay is in our book on pp. 129-131.) Webley starts her argument by building an appeal to ethos and looking at the issue “from a human standpoint…” (130). She lists many reasons why a bailout of student loan debt is unrealistic or unfair, but admits that the system is broken, as colleges have no reason to keep tuition low and lenders have the ability to take advantage of students. Her last sentence is a quote from the person who started the online petition for student load debt forgiveness and he asks “If you disagree with me, what’s your solution?” For this week’s discussion board, post one primary post of at least 300 words telling the class what you think should be done about student loan debt. Debt forgiveness one time? On an ongoing basis? Free college? Nothing? explain your position and give a reason or example to support your position.

In this problem, we will attempt to identify spam or ham SMS messages using the na¨ıve Bayes model. You will need to download the SMS dataset: http://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/datasets/SMS+Spam+Collection. Python users: scikit-learn is not allowed. Consider an SMS message as a (case-insensitive) sequence of words (X1,··· ,XT). Ignore all other punctuation. Under the na¨ıve Bayes assumption, the probability of the words in each message factors as: P(x1:T|y) = T Y t=1 P(xi|y). (3) When estimated from dataset D with pseudo-count prior of α, the model parameters are: ˆ P(xi|y) = CountD(xi,y) + α CountD(y) + Nα , (4) where: CountD(xi,y) and CountD(y) are the number of occurances of word xi in spam/ham messages y (from our sample D); and the number of words for label spam/ham words y (from our sample D) respectively; and N is the total number of dictionary words (including words not seen in D). Let us use N = 20,000 and 4 α = 0.1 in our experiments. Note that the classes are heavily imbalanced. The number of spam messages is 747, while the number of ham messages is 4827. If a simple classifier predicts that all messages are ham, it will get around 86% accuracy. In this case, accuracy is not a good measurement of the classifier’s performance. Instead of using accuracy, we can use confusion matrix to see the performance of our model. Below is the explanation of confusion matrix: True condition Positive Negative Predicted Condition Positive True positive False positive Negative False negative True negative Other important performance measurements are precision, recall, and F-score, defined as: precision = true positive true positive + false positive (5) recall = true positive true positive + false negative (6) F-score = 2· precision·recall precision + recall (7) (a) Randomly split the messages into a training set D1 (80% of messages) and a testing set D2 (20% of messages). Calculate the testing accuracy, confusion matrix, precision, recall, and F-score of the Na¨ıve Bayes classifier in determining whether a message is spam or ham. Submit your source code. Note: Let’s assume that spam is the positive class. (20 points) (b) How does the change of α effect the classifier performance? Using random split above, evaluate the training and test accuracy and F-score under different selections of α. The selection of α values are 2i where i = −5,··· ,0. Create two plots, the first plot is for the accuracy measure and the second plot is for F-score. In each plot, x-axis represents i, and y-axis represents the performance measure (accuracy/F-score). Each plot contains two line chart, a line chart describing training accuracy/F-score measure, the other line chart is for test accuracy/F-score. Submit your source code. (20 points)
