CORPORATE AVIATION PROPOSAL

Review the following details and also check the outline attached. Please complete the assignment according to outline

Prepare a 5-page report proposing a corporate flight department for the company executive. The proposal should be professional and must include graphics and diagrams. The proposal may be either APA or in a professional business proposal format (maybe use a template from Microsoft Word or equivilant). Four references, including the textbook, are required and must be formatted in current APA format, regardless of paper formatting.

The company is a large engineering firm based in Lynchburg. The firm employs 400 workers, including sales and engineering staff. The sales staff averages thirty 2–3-day trips a year, with 3–5 employees on each trip. Most of the sales trips are within a 500-mile radius of Lynchburg.

The engineering staff is involved in site inspection and pop-up troubleshooting trips. The engineer trips range from a day to 3 weeks, within the same 500 mile radius. Usually 2 engineers go on these trips about twenty times a year. The company is currently spending $280,000 a year on travel expenses.

The report should include a description and justification for the following areas:

· Why would the company benefit from corporate aviation?

· Analyze current travel needs

· Anticipate future travel needs

· Offer a solution for the company

· Aircraft

· Characteristics that make that aircraft an ideal choice

· Acquisition cost of aircraft

· Operating costs of the aircraft

· Flight department operations

· How would operations be set up?

· How to handle maintenance?

· Contingency plans

Remember, all assertions require arguments. Do not just say the aircraft saves time and money. The company executive will want to know just how much time and how much money.

Childhood Development Project

CHFD 215 – Final Project 

A local social service agency has asked you to create a pamphlet or PowerPoint Presentation to educate the community about an issue related to Child Development. Using research in the lesson material as your main source, plus at least two additional resources, put together an informational guide about any issue from the lesson material that has to do with Child Development. Some examples are teen pregnancy, challenges and tips for parents during a stage of development, (prenatal, infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, or adolescence), peer pressure, kids and social media, children with special needs, etc.

Prepare a pamphlet or PowerPoint that covers the following:

  • Start off by introducing the issue. Give a brief summary about it that includes facts, statistics, etc.
  • Who is affected by the issue and how?
  • What theories/concepts from the lesson material can help parents, caregivers, and/or professionals better understand the issue?
  • What can parents, peers, and/or professionals do to help with this issue?
  • What resources are available in your community to assist with this issue? If you can’t find anything locally, broaden your search to state and national services. Share at least 2 resources that offer help for the issue. Make sure to include the name of the agency, a summary of the services they provide, and contact information.
  • Provide a brief conclusion of your presentation or informational pamphlet.
  • Provide a summary for your instructor. You may share what you learned by completing this assignment, any challenges you faced, any information you didn’t agree with, and/or any other relevant information you’d like to share.

If you make a pamphlet it should be 1-2 pages in length. While graphics are appreciated, they shouldn’t be your focus. Your pamphlet needs to clearly cover the required material.

If you make a PowerPoint it should be 10 slides minimum (not including a Title and Reference slide) and include notes at the bottom to clearly explain the bullet points.

PowerPoint Presentation Injuries Related To Hazardous Conditions

In Chapter 2 facilities and equipment are discussed. Injuries often occur because of poor facility maintenance and faulty equipment. These types of injuries can easily be prevented.  In this activity you will consider issues created by hazards common to facilities and equipment used in a sport you would like to coach. Please develop a power point that describes the sport chosen, the type of facility and equipment used, and at least 2 injuries that are directly related to hazardous conditions, poorly maintained facilities, or damaged equipment–do NOT describe ill-fitting shoes, poorly-sized helmets, choosing to not use safety equipment, etc.--these are human errors and not appropriate for this assignment.  You must clearly link the facility/equipment hazards to specific injuries common to participation in that sport. Lastly, describe how you would address these issues (hazards) as a coach to prevent the injuries chosen. The injuries and prevention strategies chosen must clearly relate to the physical hazards described–thisconnection is the entire point of the assignment. Your PPT should also include a minimum of 3 graphics.  I will be looking for the correct use of anatomical terms when describing the injuries (don’t just write their names), a detailed look at potential hazards chosen, and your method of preventing injuries.  If you are unsure if you’ve chosen “good” hazards, send me a message and ask.  Upload the assignment as a PDF file.

Understanding Experiments In Cognition

It is reasonable to admit that in four weeks you have been exposed to a great deal of information about the human mind! This assignment will give you the opportunity to examine how the knowledge that you have acquired during the past weeks may tie together. You will explore a phenomenon that interests you, highlight the methodologies used to study it, uncover the results obtained, and assess the validity of the knowledge acquired. These activities will make you aware of the intrinsic relationship between knowledge of specific mental and behavioral phenomena, as well as the limitations of the techniques used to study them. Knowledge in cognitive psychology is largely gathered by means of experiments. Thus, it is important that you become intimately familiar with this data-gathering method. The goal of the assignment is to ensure that you have a good understanding of specific cognitive psychological phenomena as well as experiments that are often used to investigate such phenomena. Abide by the instructions listed below:

  • Watch the video, Experimental Research Methods in Psychology (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., on the experimental method.
  • Go to the Ashford University Library or Google Scholar and select a peer-reviewed article on a topic of interest among those discussed in our class. If you prefer, you may select an article from the recommended resources.
  • Describe the main research questions that the study attempts to answer. Keep in mind that a description of the main question of the study entails an explanation of the importance of the question (i.e., illustrates the gap in the existing literature).
  • State the main hypothesis (prediction) made by the researchers.
  • Identify the key variables.
  • Describe the critical characteristics of both the participants and the procedures used.
  • Summarize the main findings. How do these findings answer the question that the researchers formulated in the introductory section of the article?
  • Explain the extent to which the findings answer the research question. Do the findings support their research question (or prediction)?
  • Illustrate the weaknesses and strengths of the selected study. For instance, ask yourself questions such as the following:
    • Is the technique used to understand the selected phenomenon able to gather adequate information about it?
    • How does this technique compare to other techniques used in cognitive psychology?
    • Do the findings of the selected study generalize to individuals who may be different from those who participated (young versus older adults)?
  • Please note that research articles often contain more than one study. Thus, in this assignment, you are given the opportunity to describe each experiment separately or focus on what you believe to be the most significant experiment.

Your paper must begin with an introduction to the selected topic in which you define the research question and all concepts that will be discussed in the paper. For instance, let us assume you select the article by Strayer and Johnston “Driven to Distraction: Dual-Task Studies of Simulated Driving and Conversing on a Cellular Telephone” as the topic of your paper. Then your task is to state the question the researchers want to answer and define the terms attentiondivided attention, and distraction.

Your paper requires a brief summary of the content of the selected article according to the guidelines described above. It also requires a conclusion expressing your thoughts about the strengths and weaknesses of the available evidence. If possible, suggest the course that future research should take if the answer to the selected question is less than conclusive.

The Memory Errors in Real Life Paper

  • Must be four to five double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
  • 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 one peer-reviewed source (the article you chose) in addition to the course text.
    • The Scholarly, Peer Reviewed, and Other Credible SourcesPreview the document 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.
  • Must include a separate references page that is formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Multiple Regression Moderation Or Mediation In SPSS

NOTE** You will choose either moderation or mediation for your statistics assignment where you conduct an analysis in SPSS. You need to use the other test for your journal article critique this week. This means if you do moderation in your SPSS assignment then you would choose an article for the journal article critique assignment where the author(s) used mediation. If you choose mediation for your SPSS assignment, then you would choose an article where the author(s) used moderation.

To prepare

· Review the datasets provided. ( Attached)

· Construct a research question based on one of those datasets.

· Use either moderation or mediation in your multiple regression analysis to answer your research question.

 

Assignment #1

Based on the research question you created, complete the following tasks:

1. Fit a multiple regression model, testing whether a moderating or mediating variable affects the relationship between the predictor and the outcome variable. Think about whether or not the model will meet assumptions.

2. Fit the model, testing for moderation or mediating relationship between variables.

3. Analyze the output, determining whether moderation or mediation was statistically significant and how to interpret that result.

4. Reflect on possible implications of social change.

Write a 1- to 2-paragraph analysis in APA format that includes your data output and addresses each of the tasks listed above.

(A helpful guide on Moderation is provided)

” Opioid Addiction In Teens”

This second SPP assignment focuses on the sections of your research protocol that will provide brief background information and support for your topic choice, a discussion of your study design and target population, identification of your population sample and its required size, a description of recruitment or data selection strategies, and considerations of selection bias.

For the body of the assignment, you will include a 1-page (maximum) description of necessary background information on your topic based on existing literature. Note that this is not expected to be a thorough literature review, but rather a concise summary of important information about your topic that is needed to set the context for your proposed research study. (Note: Any background information will be assumed to be accurate. It will not be assessed, although any background material over 1 page will be ignored. Appropriate references must be provided for the background material.)

This assignment should be written as a 4 page scholarly paper excluding title page and references (do not just provide an outline). APA form and style are expected to be followed, including the correct use of in-text citations and references.

The following is an example of a content outline for this paper. While you are not required to follow this outline exactly, all of the following content should be included in some way in the scholarly paper:

(Include this in your paper)

  • Background (one page maximum)

The Impact Of Standardized Nursing Terminology

Among the Resources in this module is the Rutherford (2008) article Standardized Nursing Language: What Does It Mean for Nursing Practice? In this article, the author recounts a visit to a local hospital to view the recent implementation of a new coding system.

During the visit, one of the nurses commented to her, “We document our care using standardized nursing languages but we don’t fully understand why we do” (Rutherford, 2008, para. 1).

How would you respond to a comment such as this one?

To Prepare:

  • Review the concepts of informatics as presented in the Resources, particularly Rutherford, M. (2008) Standardized Nursing Language: What Does It Mean for Nursing Practice?
  • Reflect on the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker.
  • Consider how knowledge may be informed by data that is collected/accessed.

The Assignment:

In a 2- to 3-page paper, address the following:

  • Explain how you would inform this nurse (and others) of the importance of standardized nursing terminologies.
  • Describe the benefits and challenges of implementing standardized nursing terminologies in nursing practice. Be specific and provide examples.
  • Be sure to support your paper with peer-reviewed research on standardized nursing terminologies that you consulted from the Walden Library.
