Question

A multicultural person may be bilingual or multilingual (individual effect) and this may make them more marketable

for some careers (causal). Sometimes, for example in American society a person is judged on their accent (causal) and may be discriminated against based on the effect side (individual’s accent).

Multicultural psychology studies more of the detail. While, social psychology allows us to stand back and look at society in broader sweeps. Of course, there are times that they overlap as you point out.

What are some specific areas in society that you can use as examples to compare multicultural and social psychology?

A PIA is both a process and a document It is a process that focuses upon identifying and assessing risks related

Question

A PIA is both a process and a document. It is a process that focuses upon identifying and assessing risks related

to privacy of data handled by a specific IT system or database. A PIA is also a document in which the results of the assessment are communicated to stakeholders. Some PIA’s are released to the public in full while others are redacted to remove sensitive / non-public information.

Answer the following questions regarding PIA’s.

1. What is privacy? Is it a right? An expectation? Discuss differing definitions, e.g. the average person definition vs. a legal definition, and how these differences impact risk assessments for privacy protections (or the lack thereof).

2. What are some important best practices for protecting privacy for information collected, stored, used, and transferred by the US federal government? Identify and discuss three or more best practice recommendations for reducing risk by improving or ensuring the privacy of information processed by or stored in an organization’s IT systems and databases.

3. Explain why federal government agencies and departments required to complete PIA’s. Must a PIA be completed for every federal IT system? Why or why not?

4. Name and briefly describe 3 benefits to citizens which result from the use of PIA’s. (Considering citizen’s needs for privacy and the protection of the privacy of individuals whose information is collected, processed, transmitted, and stored in federal government IT systems and databases.)

Question

Imagine you are working for a community center that offers health, wellness, and relief services to all community

members. The clientele is diverse and everyday you see people from all walks of life. One morning, a young man, Jeff, comes to the center for assistance. Jeff’s shoes and clothes are ragged, his hair is unwashed, and he’s thin. He stops to speak to Mary, the new front desk assistant. You notice Mary’s facial expression and realize that she is put off by Jeff’s appearance. She rudely sends him off towards the social services office.

Later that morning you walk by the social services office. You see that Linda, the manager, has found Jeff a sandwich and some coffee. Linda is sitting beside him and helping him fill out paperwork. She touches him arm briefly before standing up to greet another client.

Reflect on what you know about social structure (which is made up of social institutions like the economy, family, and government). Explain how social structure plays a role in the lives of clients like Jeff.

Think about the interaction between Mary and Jeff. Explain how Mary’s treatment of Jeff may impact his experience at the community center.

    Question

    Lucas’s friend Isabel is performing in a singing competition. The winner of the competition will be determined by

    call-in votes. To help Isabel earn votes, Lucas sends text messages to 8 of his friends. He then asks each of his friends to send texts to 8 more friends, and asks his friends to ask each of their friends to send 8 texts. He is hoping for this pattern to continue and that many people will receive text messages telling them to vote for Isabel. Each set of text messages is a round of text messages, where Lucas’s messages are the first round, Lucas’s friends messages are the second round, and so on.

    What would a diagram look like modeling the first few rounds of the situation?

    If you know the number of texts sent in round x-1, how many texts will be sent in round x?

    Question

    Suppose that a paper mill feeds a downstream box mill. For the downstream mill, the marginal profitability of

    producing boxes declines with volume. For example, the first unit of boxes increases earnings by $10, the second by $9, the third by $8, and so on, until the tenth unit increases profit by just $1.

    The cost the upstream mill incurs for producing enough paper (one unit of paper) to make one unit of boxes is $3.50.

    Assume the two mills operate as separate profit centers, and the paper mill sets the price of paper. It follows that the marginal profitability of boxes represents the highest price that the box division would be willing to pay the paper division for boxes.. Furthermore, assume that fixed costs are $0 for the paper mill.

    The following table summarizes the quantity, total revenue, and marginal costs from the perspective of the paper mill for selling paper to the box mill at various prices.

    In the following table, fill in the marginal revenue, total cost, and total profit for the paper mill when selling paper to the box mill at each given price.

    If the paper mill sets the price of paper to sell to the box mill, it will set a price of ($1/$2/$3/$4/$5/$6/$7/$8/$9/$10) and sell (1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10) units of paper to the box mill. Profits will be $______for the paper mill. Companywide profits will be $______. (Hint: Recall that the prices in the table represent the marginal profitability of each unit of paper, or box, to the box mill.)

    Suppose the paper mill is forced to transfer paper to the box mill at marginal cost ($3.50).

    In this case, the box mill will demand (1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10) units of paper. This leads to companywide profits of $______.

    Do you agree with this post? Yes or no? Please elaborate When

    Question

    Do you agree with this post? Yes or no? Please elaborate.

    When

    considering the relationship between individuals and communities, there are two main considerations.

    1. The way that individuals understand their role and ability to act
    2. The way that individuals see and understand their actions within a larger social context

    I believe that the relationship between the individual and the environment or natural world depends pretty much on the person’s physical and social environment. Throughout the history of mankind, man has affected the environment in ways that are irreparable, irretrievable, and irreversible. While a lot has been lost due to human actions, it is also true that what is now valued about the environment has been preserved and protected through human action as well. I believe that humans have the responsibility to protect and restore the environment community because the environment can actually influence the individual’s behavior and motivation to act. People have a strong role to play when it comes to the environmental community.

    In today’s modern world of technology, every action people take is leading towards the destruction of the natural world. One example I can think of using the natural resources from the earth such as petroleum is depleting the earth from its natural resources, and the gas emissions from the manufacturing plant are already causing dangerously high pollution, which is damaging not just the environment, but it is also detrimental to mankind.

    It has come to my mind when I was a kid, how I kept hearing the grown-ups talking about what was going in on the little island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. For over 60 years, the U.S. Navy used and abused the small island as a bombing range and site for military training exercises. The beautiful island got sick.

    Suppose the market demand curve is p=1000−q and the market is regulated.

    The

    regulator’s objective is to maximize social welfare. For each of the following three cost functions find the social welfare-maximizing market price and market output. Then using these values calculate the highest social welfare for each the three cost functions and compare your result. You have to explain your finding using economic intuition and diagrams. The three cost functions are

    (i) c(q) = 200 + q ; (ii) c(q) = 200 + 2q ; (iii) c(q) = 300 + q

    Question

    Do you agree with this post? Yes or no? Please elaborate.

    When

    considering the relationship between individuals and communities, there are two main considerations.

    1. The way that individuals understand their role and ability to act
    2. The way that individuals see and understand their actions within a larger social context

    I believe that the relationship between the individual and the environment or natural world depends pretty much on the person’s physical and social environment. Throughout the history of mankind, man has affected the environment in ways that are irreparable, irretrievable, and irreversible. While a lot has been lost due to human actions, it is also true that what is now valued about the environment has been preserved and protected through human action as well. I believe that humans have the responsibility to protect and restore the environment community because the environment can actually influence the individual’s behavior and motivation to act. People have a strong role to play when it comes to the environmental community.

    In today’s modern world of technology, every action people take is leading towards the destruction of the natural world. One example I can think of using the natural resources from the earth such as petroleum is depleting the earth from its natural resources, and the gas emissions from the manufacturing plant are already causing dangerously high pollution, which is damaging not just the environment, but it is also detrimental to mankind.

    It has come to my mind when I was a kid, how I kept hearing the grown-ups talking about what was going in on the little island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. For over 60 years, the U.S. Navy used and abused the small island as a bombing range and site for military training exercises. The beautiful island got sick. From young children to old people, thousands got sick and believed their ailments were the cause of military exercises. The Navy eventually accepted to using heavy metals and toxic chemicals like depleted uranium and Agent Orange on the island. They, however, up to this day deny any link between their activities and the health conditions of the island’s residents. In 1997, nonetheless, a nonprofit organization noticed that the incident of cancer was extremely higher than the rest of Puerto Rico. Twenty-seven percent higher. A public grievance was filed against the Department of Health and this was just the beginning.

    This is an excellent example of people’s beliefs, behaviors, and actions that can cause so much damage not just to the environment, but to humanity as well.

    Question

    My son works at a local retail store during the summer college break. During the recruiting process, the human

    resources staff at these stores face an information asymmetry problem — they can observe a person’s interpersonal skills during the interviews, and they can talk to former employers to learn about previous experiences. However, they cannot gather full information about current personal characteristics that are important on the job (e.g., work ethic, dedication to customer service, and emotional maturity). For this reason, some job recruiters check the social media posts for top candidates.

    Is this practice unfair? Should employers use this sort of personal information to make decisions about potential work performance?

    Suppose I am the CEO of a 100%-equity-financed company, Boudro-o-Dirt, Inc., that

    re-builds levees. I am considering taking on a project in New Orleans that will require a large initial investment on my firm’s part. Boudro-o-Dirt currently has 50,000 shares of equity outstanding and a $30 share price. The firm’s cost of equity is 12.5% and the marginal tax rate is 34%.

    Having worked for a firm that went bankrupt several years ago, mainly due to a heavy debt-load, I have a very negative attitude towards the use of debt in Lots’ capital structure. However, I also know that I could start borrowing at 8%.

    I have heard that you just read a couple of chapters about capitalizing with debt, so I decide to hire you to advise me about financing all or part of this project with debt. What should I be aware of and concerned about as I make my decision about 1) the pros and cons of using debt or not, and 2) how much debt to use?

    AAA Mechanics Ltd has tasked your team to develop the requirements for their vehicle mechanical service company

    Question

    AAA Mechanics Ltd has tasked your team to develop the requirements for their vehicle mechanical service company

    system. The system is to allow the company to record client information – their details (for example name, address, contact details), vehicle details (for example make, model, colour, registration), and service history (for example service dates and odometer readings, details of the services performed separated into labour tasks and parts used, the mechanics involved). The system must also keep records of the mechanics employed by the company – their personal details, their qualifications and special licenses, time sheet information, emergency contact details, supervisor details. The company has a pool of ten mechanics who are entitled to a rostered day off per fortnight and so the system must be able to produce a roster for the mechanics ensuring that there is always at least five mechanics working on a day and one mechanic available for emergency call in, in the event of illness or extra work demand. Mechanics can enter information into the system at any of five terminals to be placed in the workshop area; front office staff can enter information at any of two terminals in the front office; and roadway staff can enter details at an outside terminal on arrival of the client with their vehicle. The company also provides loan cars to clients on request and so must keep information on when loan cars are available for clients and who has a loan car at any given time and for how long. AAA Mechanics Ltd needs to manage an inventory of common parts and consumables that the mechanics use for jobs. Mechanics decrement the inventory as they use parts and consumables. The purchasing officer for AAA Mechanics Ltd needs to be able to check inventory levels at any time and order additional stock (typically via email to a supplier as necessary). However, the purchasing officer should also receive a warning email if stock levels decrement below a threshold. The system should be able to handle up to 5000 part numbers (a consumable also has a part number) and the purchasing officer set the thresholds for the warning levels for each part as they require. A part or consumable has a name, a number, a supplier and a minimum order quantity. AAA Mechanics Ltd has a finance manager who must be able to extract information related to car services and bills paid (clients pay the front office staff on completion of a job) as well as invoices paid to suppliers, for parts ordered by the purchasing officer. The finance manager prefers to use Microsoft® Excel® and MYOB® for accounting activities. AAA Mechanics Ltd has a marketing manager who needs to be able to set up mail out reminders to clients when their car might be coming due for a service and any special offers. The marketing manager also likes to use Corel® Draw®, as well as Microsoft® Excel®. There has been some consideration to giving mechanics a tablet computing device so that they can enter information more freely as they move around the workshop but there are concerns about the robustness of such devices (mechanics like to drop things) and the need for a local wireless area network – if possible this is desirable, but not mandatory. AAA Mechanics Ltd has an IT administrator to maintain the system, perform backups and set access permissions, for example. The team, apart from the IT administrator, finance manager and marketing manager are generally fairly IT illiterate and so need very simple user interfaces.

    Identify and describe appropriate non-functional requirements for the system.

    Question

    My son works at a local retail store during the summer college break. During the recruiting process, the human

    resources staff at these stores face an information asymmetry problem — they can observe a person’s interpersonal skills during the interviews, and they can talk to former employers to learn about previous experiences. However, they cannot gather full information about current personal characteristics that are important on the job (e.g., work ethic, dedication to customer service, and emotional maturity). For this reason, some job recruiters check the social media posts for top candidates.

    Is this practice unfair? Should employers use this sort of personal information to make decisions about potential work performance?

    Help needed

    Suppose I am the CEO of a 100%-equity-financed company, Boudro-o-Dirt, Inc., that

    re-builds levees. I am considering taking on a project in New Orleans that will require a large initial investment on my firm’s part. Boudro-o-Dirt currently has 50,000 shares of equity outstanding and a $30 share price. The firm’s cost of equity is 12.5% and the marginal tax rate is 34%.

    Having worked for a firm that went bankrupt several years ago, mainly due to a heavy debt-load, I have a very negative attitude towards the use of debt in Lots’ capital structure. However, I also know that I could start borrowing at 8%.

    I have heard that you just read a couple of chapters about capitalizing with debt, so I decide to hire you to advise me about financing all or part of this project with debt. What should I be aware of and concerned about as I make my decision about 1) the pros and cons of using debt or not, and 2) how much debt to use?
