Identify the policy issue your group has been assigned (Issue is stated in the title). Then: 1) define; 2) briefly explain; 3) draw on two key concepts from the Houlihan reading AND/OR Hayhurst lecture from this week, and explain how these concepts may you to make sense of your policy issue. You can use more than two concepts if you’d like. You can also select other concepts that are not in this list, as long as they are used in the Houlihan reading/Hayhurst lecture. Examples of possible concepts: – public policy – policy-making – comparative policy analysis – policy entrepreneur – policy broker – policy-oriented learning – policy discourse – meso-level – advocacy coalition framework – demand groups (e.g, consumers of policy outputs – such as facility users, clubs, etc.) – provider groups (e.g., deliverers of services -such as PE teachers, etc.). – direct groups (e.g.,those groups upon which organizations depend for systems support – such as national governing bodies of sport, etc.). – indirect groups (e.g., related to local authority services – community development, etc.).
You will select one major region in the world (i.e. East Asia, Europe, Mexico/Latin America, North Africa/Middle East, South Asia/Southeast Asia/Australia, and Sub-Saharan Africa). Each team member must choose a different region – share your chosen region, so your peers don’t write about the same region. I have chosen North Africa/Middle East. Find a credible source of article covering a current event in your selected region. Searching for multiple sources of the same event is strongly encouraged. Sometimes you might get insights from opposing views on the same event. (You must include a LINK to your chosen event article) Summarize the content of the article(s) by briefing who, what, when, where, and how the event occurs. Tell us what your major take-away from the event in terms of how the event impacts international business. Explain WHY this event is important to you, us, and/or the rest of the world.
5 PEER RESPONSES DUE IN 5 HOURS RITUALS PLEASE RESPOND TO AT LEAST TWO STUDENTS. PLEASE NOTE THAT ONE-TWO SENTENCE POSTS OR RESPONSES WILL NOT SUFFICE. RAWLEY’S POST: One of my friends rushed a sorority our freshman year of high school. Although I was not a part of it, she shared some of the rituals of the bothersome organization how girls were talked about and chosen based on looks or the status of their parents. We attended some of the fraternities, and witnessing some of the hazing going on, I was astonished that these were deemed “rituals”. There was undoubtedly questionable behavior that looked highly unethical in the name of rituals. RUSSELL’S POST: I believe that the one ritual I can think of for my organization is the new employee orientation, both a rite if integration and a rite of passage. When I first began working here there was an extensive and monthly and mandatory orientation. It gave new employees the information and tools they needed to integrate into the fabric of the organization. Over time, some of those functions moved to the online orientation and some just dropped away entirely. If I were given the opportunity I would suggest a new and improved, and in-person (or virtual) new employee orientation to give new people that feeling of inclusion and safety. LOWEST PRICE PLEASE RESPOND TO AT LEAST TWO STUDENTS. PLEASE NOTE THAT ONE-TWO SENTENCE POSTS OR RESPONSES WILL NOT SUFFICE. KELVIN’S POST: In most situations, companies should provide the lowest price possible and the best service to their consumers. People deserver to be treated with the utmost respect and decency. However, some cases can call for the opposite. I would not necessarily say prices should change (they could though), but service might decline if a customer comes in who is always angry or disgruntled with the employees. People who repeatedly act in rude ways should receive the same sort of service. Now say if someone has a business that requires a water tank with chemicals on the back of a truck to care for customer’s lawns and gardens. If an area is hard to get to or always blocked by other traffic, raising the price might be necessary from the lowest to meet the issue at hand. GERRIT’S POST: I do not think that companies owe their customers the lowest price and best service. I do think that is a good business practice to attract more customers to provide good customer service regardless of the price range of the product or service being provided. I think what a business owes its consumers is an honest representation of its goods and services that fits their price points. It is up to the consumer to accept the transaction or find another company to deal with. I always shop around to try to find the best bang for my buck I can. I think that it is a lot easier nowadays with most people having smartphones and access the Internet to find the deals and stuff that’ll fit with your price points best. That being said, any company that mistreats its customers, whether being through deceitful practices or poor customer service, will not last long as other companies are constantly coming up to their place and competing with them for their customer base. I agree with all of the reasons posed by the textbook as to why followers become henchmen for toxic leaders. However, within what I have seen in the past, I would have to say that the need for security and certainty has been one the most significant reasons. In the context of following toxic leadership, I think that every circumstance is different for everyone. But, if someone knows that they are following a toxic leader but feels as if they cannot leave due to what would happen if they did, this is a prime example of these type of followers taking advantage of our need for security and certainty. I think that this applies all across the board, from the example given in the text about the migrant workers, all the way to a person who feels like he is stuck at his terrible work environment and cannot simply quit due to what it might do to his career. I think that the two most important principles of leadership as described in the text are serving others as well as being honest. “Leaders who serve are altruistic: They place their followers’ welfare foremost in their plans. In the workplace, altruistic service behavior can be observed in activities such as mentoring, empowerment behaviors, team building, and citizenship behaviors, to name a few (Kanungo & Mendonca, 1996).” (Northouse, pp. 502, 2019). As we discussed within last week’s topic of servant leadership, I think that having a deep desire to serve others before we consider ourselves is one of the most powerful forms of leadership. We must be the ones who show up early, stay late, and do anything and everything that we can to lead our subordinates in the right direction. When it comes to being honest leaders, I really liked this point that the text made: “But being honest is not just about telling the truth. It has to do with being open with others and representing reality as fully and completely as possible.” (Northouse, pp. 504, 2019). What makes a great leader is having the ability to be completely and totally honest, why also respecting the fact that there are times when certain things need to said and done through a different filter in depending on different situations. The reason why I chose serving others and being honest as the two most important principles of leadership is because within my own personal experience, these have been the two that have been the most prevalent within the best leaders that I have ever followed. Not only have these been significant with the best leaders I’ve followed but have also been what the worst I have followed have lacked significantly. Whenever I am following a leader who chooses to serve others before he/she themselves are served, I have always been inspired to do the same exact thing. This, in turn, has made me both a better follower as well as a leader. Whenever a leader that I follow consistently displays honesty in both the big and small areas, I am encouraged to trust them more and therefore I become a better follower, as well as developing the desire to be honest within both my followership and leadership.

a response (at least 200–300 words) to the following prompt: We are more connected and dependent on our technology than ever before. In Week 2’s Reading, Thoreau chose to live at Walden Pond without any of the modern conveniences of his time for a while. Do you think you could be completely disconnected from any type of modern technology? Would there be benefits to disconnecting? Is there a specific technology or gadget that you use in your personal life that you could not live without? Could you do your current job without technology? Why or why not?
As the title of this week on the syllabus suggests, we begin to see the emergence of broad societal, political, economic, and technological changes that will ultimately define the rest of the nineteenth century and into the twentieth. Like the last two weeks, our goal is to collectively unpack the many ways in which the nation and world was changing in the early 1860s as a consequence of the war (and including ways the world was changing the war that had an impact upon its outcome). The goal of your post is to identify one way in which this time period and/or the war itself represented revolutionary change and how that change manifested itself in America of that era. I realize that your posts will have some overlap, but the nature of the material should allow us to explore the many different facets of revolutionary change, but also how often these aspects of revolutionary change are related. For instance, in order for technological changes to occur, we need a culture of industrialization, and in turn can we foster a culture of industrialization without the political structures that encourage it or the technological know-how of immigrants and others who bring it to America? In this week’s discussion, I want you to take special care in making your posts speak to each other, building on the points of your classmates, but also forging into new territory – not simply “yeah I agree with so-and-so” – but an expansion and furthering of the discussion. You are also welcome to post an entirely new idea that someone else hasn’t discussed. I’ll be commenting periodically on your posts to facilitate this discussion’s forward progress. You may draw upon all the material we have examined thus far in this class, but I want you to prioritize the materials from this week, including the week 3 lecture and notes, , and our selections from Escott, Masur, and McPherson. Posts that receive full credit should do the following:
Scenario: 3 paragraphs You are member of a prisoner review board for a minimum security facility in your state. Included amongst the inmates are a number of heroin addicts who were charges with possession crimes and some minor thefts in which they supported their habits. include answers in your main posting for the following questions: What are the methods of treatment for heroin addiction?What is the difference between heroin detoxification and heroin addiction treatment?What is the best method for insuring the heroin addict does not return to heroin abuse? Does long term incarceration play a role?
Read the bottom of p.160 through the top of p. 161. Now take a road trip. If you don’t drive, ride with a friend, or ride the bus. Think about what you are feeling as the vehicle starts, speeds up, moves, slows down, and stops. Considering the position of the vehicle as the function, explain what you notice in terms of the function and its first, second, and third derivatives. How do you measure each of these, both by using the vehicle’s instruments and by what you feel acting on your body? Note: Be safe! Obey speed limits and other laws of the road. You can test these phenomena without driving fast.
Imagine that you’ve been working with the CSI and Police Department in your local area as lead forensic scientist for quite a few years now. The department has recently put a young, brand new forensic scientist to work on a case with you, so they can better learn the ropes from a seasoned vet like yourself! The two of you are on your way to investigate a crime scene where a dead body was found just a few hours ago. Of course, it’s imperative that you teach the new forensic scientist the proper way to handle evidence and an investigation! You walk up to the crime scene. A dead body is lying on the bank of the river, just a few miles outside of the city. There is a bullet wound on the victim’s chest where it appears a bullet entered the body. There are a few bullets that have been found scattered near the body of the victim. You can see that a gun is resting on the bottom of the river in the shallow end near the shore. Do some online research regarding what should be done first at any crime scene and how evidence should be processed. Based on your research, and what you learned in the unit, answer the questions. 1. Discuss the first things you should teach your new partner to do as you approach the crime scene. 2. Explain how you and your partner should go about handling the gun found at the bottom of the river? What are some things to keep in mind?. 3.How should you and your partner go about handling the bullets found near the body of the victim? 4. What information might you be able to find from the gun and bullets found at the crime scene? 5. As we know, it is very important to handle evidence at a crime scene properly. If clues and evidence are mishandled, it could ruin an entire investigation! Conduct some additional online research on your own. Find an article that describes a crime scene where evidence was mishandled. Share the link to the article you found and write a paragraph or two to describe how the scene was mishandled and how this impacted the case. Include advice on how the investigation could have been better managed and how the scene and evidence should have been handled.
