Part 2: Research Analysis(3-5 pages)

You need to find and report on 2 comprehensive articles concerning your policy. Use the link I provided above to get an introduction to your policy; however, the associated reading cannot be one of the articles you need to find. Instead, you may use it as a reference in the introduction of the paper.

The two articles you select can’t just be loosely related to your topic but must specifically discuss your policy(e.g., its development, impact on specific populations, outcomes, evaluation). Articles need to be published within the last 6 years.You may search for your articles in different databases: legal, sociological, political, and psychological, Google Scholar, and the open internet. You goal is to find a comprehensive policy brief or evaluation by a governmental or private research center, e.g., the RAND Corporation. The articles should comprehensively discuss the social problem the policy is trying to alleviate, the history of the policy, its impacts on the target population; or the article could feature a critical analysis of the policy. Do not waste time searching for an empirical article. I am not asking for that. It is rare to find any or good empirical articles on policies. Your article cannot be just a print out of the policy from its government website.

If you are at all uncertain about whether your articles are appropriate, please come to office hours for feedback.

Please note! I am NOT asking you to find an empirical article.It is unlikely that you will find an empirical article that comprehensively describes your policy. Empirical articles are typically focused on one narrow part of an issue. I am also NOT limiting you to psychological databases. It is much more likely that you find relevant articles in law/sociology/policy related databases.

Please contact our affiliated librarian, Joanna Kimmitt, to help you structure your search:

For each article state:

1.The purposeof the article.

2.What are the article’s major arguments,findings or conclusions? Do NOT waste any space describing any research methods but focus on describing the major arguments, findings / data presented and their implications for the policy’s effectiveness and for the stakeholders.

3.In what ways does the article address your policy issue, related social issues, risk and protective factors; agency and community needs and functioning; social or political barriers to optimal functioning; any challenges to the effectiveness of the policy. Any persisting problems in spite of the policy?

4.What do the authors say should happen to alleviate problems associated with your topic? How does that fit with current challenges to the policy and any changes that are being proposed by various stakeholders?

Structure Part 2 in the following way:

PART 2, Article 1: Article Citation in APA Style. Sections 1-4.


PART 2, Article 2: Article Citation in APA Style. Sections 1-4.

·Label each article as indicated below, e.g.:

PART2, Article 1:

Ekberg, J., Eriksson, R., & Friebel, G. (2013). Parental leave — A policy evaluation of the Swedish “Daddy-Month” reform. Journal of economics,97, 131-143.

For each section, list the abbreviated section title (e.g., Section 1: Purpose of the Article; Section 2: Major Findings).This will help you to keep your paper organized and to make sure that you are addressing the necessary parts of the assignment

In the discussion thread below, I would like you to write something about a personal way you understand / interpret time. This could be about anything you do where you suspend keeping track of actual time (time on a clock) and shift into another interpretation of time. You will:

1. Explain the activity when this shift happens.

2. Explain why do you think this shift happens.

watch video

EXAMPLE: When I am playing music my understanding of time shifts from its literal representation (the time on my watch) to some internal clock – or maybe lack thereof. Time seems to be flexible when I’m making music – an hour can feel like a minute or a day. I think this happens because my interest in performing music consumes my attention completely, as well as music (often) has a time to it (a notational time), a tempo that is different than the length of a second or minute or hour. While playing you keep count of this tempo so as to stay on the beat. But also music is durational, it has a window of time you must set aside in order to consume it. Unlike a painting, which you can “consume” entirely by looking at it for 10 seconds or 10 minutes – your choice – but you can only “consume” an entire piece of music by listening to the entire thing, which takes the literal length of the song. So instead of dividing my time into minutes and hours, it gets divided into the particular length it takes to make or listen to a piece of music. 

Please respond to the following student that answered the same discussion question as you:

I work in the Emergency Department as an RN. When a patient stops breathing or has no pulse you immediately shout out CODE BLUE. This lets staff (ED doctors, nurses, and respiratory therapists) know help is needed with a patient because if we don’t act rapidly and efficiently they will die. As the code blue is going on my adrenaline is rushing, my heart is beating fast, and I’m low-key under a lot of stress. During a code blue, time changes, what is minutes feels like seconds. Everything happens so fast! Before you know it it’s over like a blink of an eye. Staff rush into the room, ED doctor is asking you about the patient’s history, CODE status. Everyone is moving, someone is putting the patient on cardiac pads, bagging the patient, and giving medications, and the doctor puts a tube down the patient’s throat. During a code blue, it’s organized chaos. Everyone has a role and we work together focusing on saving the patient’s life. I think this happens because you know it’s a life or death situation and you have to act fast and well under pressure as the nurse. As it happens you zone out and hyper-focus on your role as a nurse. I’ve been a nurse for close to five years now and I still get that adrenaline rush and stress when a patient codes. During codes, time changes and feels so stressful and fast.

Superior Electrical (Superior) was in the business of installing
electrical wiring and related components at new construction sites.
Because some employees were assigned company vehicles equipped with
company tools and materials and were expected to drive those vehicles to
the work sites, Superior required all employment applicants to hold a
valid driver’s license. Employees who were assigned a company vehicle
were expected to drive for the company during the workday in order to
transport job materials and company tools that were kept on the vehicle
to job sites. These employees were expected to take the company issued
vehicle home at the end of the work day.

Superior hired Cory Jones as an apprentice electrician. Jones had
completed an employment application in which he stated that he had a
valid driver’s license and had not been cited for any traffic
violations. These statements were untrue. His license had been suspended
because of numerous traffic violations, including careless driving and
driving without a license. Superior did not check on his driving record
at the time he was hired because, as an apprentice electrician, he was
not being assigned a company vehicle and was not expected to drive for
the company during the work day.

About a year after hiring Jones, Superior promoted him to electrician
and assigned Jones a company vehicle equipped with a rack for
transporting wiring and other materials to and from the work sites.
Superior intended that Jones drive during the day for the company and to
take the vehicle home after the end of the work day. On a later date,
when Jones’s work hours had ended and he was driving home in the company
vehicle, he collided with two cars. The collision resulted solely from
Jones’s negligence. Carolyn Carson and her son were severely injured in
the collision and they sued Superior. The Carson’s alleged two theories
of recovery against Superior: respondeat superior and negligent hiring.

Write a four- to five-page paper (not including title and references pages) that addresses the following:

  • Identify and discuss the legal elements of negligent hiring.
  • Apply those elements of negligent hiring to the facts given in the case.
  • Analyze whether Superior would be liable for negligent hiring.
  • Identify and discuss the legal elements of respondeat superior.
  • Apply those elements of respondeat superior to the facts given in the case.
  • Analyze whether Superior would be liable on respondeat superior grounds.

This Final Paper is comprehensive reflection of the knowledge you  have learned in this course. Thus, prior to beginning work on this  assignment, review each of the chapters of the course textbook. Then,  review the following case study:

For this class, The Timmco Case Study Final Paper will apply toward  Folio. Be sure to upload your paper to Folio once you have completed it  and share a link in your submission in addition to uploading it to  Waypoint to be graded. Learn more about Folio by reading the Folio Quick-Start Guide (Links to an external site.).

Timmco Case Study

Timmco, Inc. is a publicly traded corporation located in Denton,  Texas that makes and sells high pressure industrial spraying equipment  used in all sorts of commercial liquid spraying applications. It prides  itself on top quality and promotes its products as “100% made in the  USA”.

Sales have been declining recently due to competition from lower  priced competitors and Timmco is looking for ways to reduce costs. One  option under consideration is to find a new source for the high-pressure  valves used in its products. These valves are complicated mechanisms  that operate under very high internal pressure. If the valve was to  burst, it would spray pieces of metal in all directions and pose a  significant hazard to anyone standing nearby including the operator of  the equipment. Timmco currently has a contract to purchase 1,000 valves a  year at $2,500 per valve from Blagg Industries, a small privately owned  business located in Boone, North Carolina. The contract has been in  place for three years and has two more years to run.

Blagg Industries has a dozen employees. Timmco is its primary  customer. If Blagg Industries loses Timmco’s business, it will have to  lay off employees and might even go out of business.

Timmco is considering outsourcing the valves from Sanco, an overseas  supplier in the country of Slawrovia, instead of buying valves from  Blagg Industries. The Sanco valves only cost $1,000 each, but are known  to be of lower quality than the Blagg Industries valves and are more  likely to burst. Sanco can supply these valves at such low cost because  they pay their workers, including children, less than the equivalent of  $5 per day and work them long hours in hot, dangerous conditions.

Slawrovia is a poor country, but it has a large government  bureaucracy and there is a lot of red tape involved in getting approval  to export manufactured goods to other countries. In fact, it might take  more than a year for Sanco and Timmco to obtain the necessary approvals  for Sanco to export the valves to Timmco. Fortunately, the CEO of Sanco  is related to the Slawrovia Minister of Commerce and has told Timmco  that the necessary approvals can be obtained in less than a week if  Timmco makes a $20,000 “gift” to the Slawrovia Minister of Commerce.

In addition to finding a new, low cost valve supplier, Timmco plans  to increase sales by running a new marketing campaign that focuses on  their commitment to American made quality. The tagline will be “Made in  the USA by Americans, for Americans.”

You are a high-level executive at Timmco. Analyze the legal and  ethical issues presented by the Timmco scenario. Your legal and ethical  analysis should include breach of contract and remedies, negligent  torts, product liability, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and  deceptive advertising and should incorporate a discussion and  application of one or more of the ethical theories from Chapter 4 of the  course textbook Business law: The Ethical, Global, and E-Commerce Environment.

Your legal and ethical analysis should,

  • Analyze breach of contract and remedies
  • Analyze negligent torts
  • Analyze product liability
  • Analyze the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
  • Analyze deceptive advertising
  • Incorporate a discussion and application of one or more of the ethical theories from Chapter 4 of the course textbook Business Law: The Ethical, Global, and E-Commerce Environment.

Art & Agency

Agency can be described as an individual’s ability to affect change. This influence can be over their own personal life or it can be over a larger community – or both. An obvious and unfortunate example of this would be a wealthy person having more agency than a poor person. Their options and ability to affect change in both their personal life and the world at large increases proportionate to their personal wealth.

An artist expresses their agency by the very nature that they are making work. They are producing something that becomes a surrogate, a vehicle for their interests, concerns, and emotions. They put their work out into the world with the potential to influence or inspire.

As an artist gains exposure, they can increase this agency by using their voice to amplify an idea or concern for something larger than themself. An example of this would be the artwork created around the Black Lives Matter movement. This work serves the dual purpose of realizing an emotional expression – and amplification – of the concerns of a much larger community.

Each artist has a unique, particular practice (practice is the term to use when speaking of an artist’s production of artwork), and each deals with ideas of agency in particular ways. When you watch each of the videos, pay particular mind to the notions of agency that you will be presented with.

Write a response to Kerry James Marshall in which you address notions of agency in the work that the artist does. Address the following, each prompt to be completed in a few sentences. Please answer the following questions.

Kerry James Marshall is a painter born in Birmingham, Alabama, who spent his childhood in South Central Los Angeles and currently resides in Chicago. His work addresses African-American life and history through a stylized realism and compositional mastery. The way that he speaks about his painting – and painting in general – addresses ideas of individual agency and how that might pertain to shaping a more diverse future of symbolism. Hear it straight from the source in the video below.


1. Based on the video that you watched, how does the artist use their individual agency?

2. How do they use their agency to affect a larger community? What community are they engaging with?

After you turn in the assignment, I will send you a response that you will need to respond to

Frederick Douglass was a former slave who escaped slavery and became an educated, articulate, outspoken crusader against slavery.  After writing a best-selling book about his experiences he became a prominent speaker on the lecture circuit in the North and abroad and was often invited to speak at various political or community events generally hosted by white reform groups. 

Read Douglass’s “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July? speech and in the reply-box:

  1. briefly explain the essence of Douglass’s speech (what it was basically about, or what his main point was)
  2. offer two or three quotes you believe to be most powerful, most telling, or had the most impact (a few words or a sentence per quote, but not a paragraph)
  3. choose three adjectives you think best capture the essence of the speech and/or his tone

respond to student 1 and student 2 in 4-5 sentences.

student 1

Frederick Douglass delivered a powerful speech that pointed out the hypocrisy of the American people. He used irony to address that they have a celebration of liberty and freedom yet still keep 3 million people are enslaved. He brings up that they are all equal men and can do all the same things. The American people believe that men are entitled to equality and freedom, so he questions why that is not extended to them. Also, he calls out the church for trampling over their biblical and Christian values to allow slavery to exist when it’s something that’s inhumane, therefore not divine. All this he tied together to show why slavery needed to be abolished.

“And let me warn you, that it is dangerous to copy the example of a nation (Babylon) whose crimes, towering up to heaven, were thrown down by the breath of the Almighty, burying that nation in irrecoverable ruin.”

“Must I argue that a system thus marked with blood and stained with pollution is wrong?”

1. Powerful

2. Outrageous

3. Straightforward

student 2

1. The main point of what Frederick Douglass’s speech is to abolish slavery in the United States.

2. -“This Fourth of July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn. To drag a man in fetters into the grand illuminated temple of liberty, and call upon him to join you in joyous anthems, were inhuman mockery and sacrilegious irony.”. In this first quote I find it to be a strong description on how Douglass felt about the 4th of July and how this day is supposed to be a celebration for the US to declare freedom from UK while he is still considered a slave.

“your celebration is a sham; your boasted liberty an unholy license; your national greatness, swelling vanity; your sounds of rejoicing are empty and heartless; your shouts of liberty and equality, hollow mock; your prayers and hymns, your sermons and thanksgivings, with all your religious parade and solemnity, are to him mere bombast, fraud, deception, impiety, and hypocrisy – a thin veil to cover up crimes which would disgrace a nation of savages.”. This quote goes into detail about how Douglass felt about people celebrating the 4th of July and especially people from the south.

3. ( heartless, ignorant, shameless) I believe these worlds perfectly described how Douglass felt about his stance on slavery

We have read several essays about how identity is influenced by culture. Now it is time for you to write your own essay about these issues. Culture is complex, and popular perceptions about culture, ethnicity, and race often have a profound impact on how we see ourselves and how we interact with the world around us. Think about your own construction of identity, and how it is influenced by the various cultures or subcultures you are a part of.   

Writing Task: 

Write an essay about how one of the cultures you are part of (or identify with) is connected in a significant and influential way to how you form or express your identity, and discuss that connection using narrative and examples illustrate the point you are making.  

  • Remember: Culture can be many things! Ethnic culture, subcultures, popular culture, religious culture, regional culture, and more!

Sample Topics: 

Note: You are not limited to these topics.  These are simply examples of topics that would fit this question.

  • How a culture/subculture you identify with has shaped/changed/influenced your own identity and outlook on the world.
    • Is the subculture you identify with different from the one you were raised in?  If so, how have these differences been significant to you? 
  • How racial stereotypes negatively impact the quality of life for minorities in America
  • How issues of language or education can have a significant impact on how we see ourselves or how others perceive us. 
  • The influence of advertisements or media on the creation of feminine/masculine/non-binary identities.
  • The influence of music and music subcultures on the development of identity, for example, what it means to identify as punk, hip hop, a goth, a scene kid, a metalhead, a raver, etc…
  • The impact of Fandom and “geek culture” on your identity and interact with the world 
  • How important is it for immigrants or the children of immigrants in America to hold on to traditional foods, native language, and family customs?  How does one balance holding on to your cultural identity while assimilating into “mainstream” American culture?
