Part1 Read Kettle (2006). He describes three characteristics of “wicked” problems and five pathologies that result in a failure of government to learn from previous errors in crisis response. Describe the characteristics of “wicked” problems and explain one or more of the pathologies that impact operations in the response phase of incidents. Kettle, D. (2006). Is the Worst Yet to Come? 604, 273-287. (Keep separate can be one document separated by references) Part 2 There are two readings this week that examine Public Leadership in Crisis. They both have issues that could be characterized as pre-incident, response phase, and post-incident issues. Boin and t’Hart (2003) describe six public expectations that leaders are incapable of meeting in times of crisis. Choose two to focus on and provide examples from the article, class, and your own research to illustrate. (This was written before Hurricane Katrina…were their assertions proved correct?)

Create a video slot machine using Visual Studio and writing all of your code in VB. The video slot machine must look like a video slot machine. You can use a picture that is open source or design your own Before the video slot machine runs, the program must ask for the username so that it can be recorded for later for the high scores page The username cannot be less than 1 character and not more than 3 characters. If they are, the username must be entered again until it meets this criteria The video slot machine should have 3 windows (picture reels), so that the pictures for the slot machine reside in those windows Each Window must display a total of the same 5 pictures, to be used for calculating the winnings Each Window must show a random picture and must use animation to make it look like the reels are spinning You must use a total of 5 or more different winning combinations, which you can make up at your own discretion, use your imagination – for example: Cherry – cherry – cherry (wins 800) Apple – apple – apple (wins 400) Cherry – apple – pear (wins 200) Etc. The video slot machine will have two additional windows at the bottom of the reel windows Credits Credits will start with 2000 Each spin will cost 200, so this must be deducted from the Credits When credits hit 0, the program ends Winnings Based on the winnings in 2c above, those winnings get displayed in this window if won, and on the next spin, that window must be blank again unless a winning combination is won The winnings gets added to the Credits window above There will be three button controls that the user can select Spin Selecting this button spins the wheels When this button is pressed, the credits for the spin are subtracted from the total credits window Exit user exits the application if the credits have not reached 0 When the program exits, a High Scores window is displayed and based on the username entered in step 1, the high scores window gets updated Show Winning Combinations When this button is selected, a new window will pop up with the combinations that were described in 2c and show the users those combinations so that they can know what they need to spin – This is an informational window only High Scores Window The high scores window keeps track of the highest totals in credits scored The high scores will get updated with the username if the program is exited from the exit button If the credits become 0, the high score window is not displayed

Paper Goal: Identify and analyze ideas related to social problems, identify why something is considered a social problem, consider a sociological perspective’s relevance and its possible explanations. For this paper, students will need to do the following: 1) Identify a social problem to explore. This can be any social problem, as long as you can meet the criteria of the paper. 2) Seek out and link to at least two online sources that discusses the social problem. Examples would include a discussion board, research paper, news article, YouTube video, or opinion piece. This will not require proper ASA or APA citation (although that is advised), but links must be provided at the end of the paper or in a references section. For the paper itself: Answer the following questions related to the social problem: Because this is a fairly short paper, do not feel a need to be exhaustive, but I do expect each element of the paper to be done for full credit. Does the paper identify and describe why something is a social problem? [2 pts] Does the paper properly identify and summarize a sociological theory in respect to the problem? [4 pts] Does the paper discuss (at least briefly) causes and solutions of the problem? [2 pts] Is the paper properly formatted? (e.g. No major spelling/grammar errors, two and a half pages in length ignoring heading/references) [2 pts]
