Please include both answers in one initial post with extra space between them.
Middle Ground Discussion: For this discussion, choose an issue that you wrote about previously in this course (either your Toulmin or Rogerian essay). Let the class know your previous claim and briefly how you
proved this claim in your essay. After this brief review discussion, discuss how you would have approached this particular topic if you were to write a Middle Ground argument, instead of a Toulmin or Rogerian
argument. Would you have adjusted your claim? If so, what sort of adjustment would you need? Would you have to find additional sources about your topic in order to prove this new claim? Is a middle ground solution a
more practical solution to your chosen issue?
In your responses to your classmates on the Middle Ground discussion, let your classmate know which argument appears to be stronger: the original claim or the new middle ground claim. Please make sure to explain
why. If you disagree with both claims, that’s fine – let your classmate know why you disagree in a bias-free manner.
Concluding Remarks: Secondly, during this course, you have read quite a few arguments, critiqued some of these arguments, and written essays using various methods of argumentation. Take a moment to consider

For this week’s forum, I picked the topic of Supply Chain risk; this caught my eye immediately as I started reading Chapter 10. According to our reading this week, the dictionary defines risk as the quantifiable likelihood of loss or less-than-expected returns. That’s helpful in the sense that it tells us risk is something to be avoided or minimized (Poirier, Quinn Swink, p. 208, 2010). Our reading gives several definitions but the one that was used here is the better one in my opinion. Whenever you deal with the supply chain you do not want a negative impact when it comes to risk. Therefore, utilizing supply chain management is vital to the entire process. Our readings tells us, Managing supply chain risk is not about avoiding risk or never taking calculated risks. Instead, it’s about having the organizational awareness of risk, the capability to analyze and assess vulnerability, and the ability to react to risk with the correct decisions (Poirier, Quinn Swink, p. 210, 2010). The survey in our reading is interesting and provides a vital snapshot when it comes to risk concerns. The question that someone needs to be able to answer is if the supply chain risks are worth it? I look at supply chain risk as you have to choose which battles to fight. Utilizing certain strategies can help make the risk easier to manage; the risk can be transferred, avoid the risk altogether and accept the risk. Overall, I found this topic interesting and vital to the supply chain as a whole.
Poirier, C. C., Quinn, F. J., Swink, M. L. (2010). Diagnosing greatness: Ten traits of the best supply chains. Fort Lauderdale, Florida: J. Ross Publishing. Retrieved from http://ebookcentral.proquest.com.ezproxy2.apus.edu/lib/apus/reader.action?docID=3319496
When reflecting on what risk is when it comes to supply chains, I often fall back on the ideas of partnerships via outsourcing a part of the supply chain, investing in technological upgrades that are advertised as future necessities to save time and money down the road, and anything else that results in more money being spent or time being used. Whether it is investment in technology to help better track a product after it is shipped or expedite a process within the supply chain to get the customer their product quicker and cheaper as time goes on, or spending money on outsourcing partnerships that also gets the customer their product quicker and cheaper, these all come with a great degree of risk. If the juice is not worth the squeeze, then a company just wasted time and/or money that could have gone into something else. But if at a minimum, it all works out as planned, then the company weighed the risk and rewards very well and made a great informed decision.
When it comes to our text Diagnosing Greatness, Poirier, Quinn, Swink addresses risk management within the supply chain as the ability to anticipate, evaluate, and react to unexpected disruptions to the supply chain (2008, p. 205). This doesn’t line up with my thoughts as it considers risk as unexpected disruptions. If you plan for it, then can it really be unexpected? With that said, Poirier et al. go on to cover both expected and unexpected risk, making me feel a bit better as I felt that I was completely off. At the end of it all, risk is summarized as a firm’s ability to reduce and cost-effectively control any unanticipated or calamitous supply chain disruptions (Poirier et al., 2008, p. 209). While risk management plans for the unexpected, the rewards from when it all works out makes it all worth it in the end. Companies just need to understand the tangible and intangible risks of any decision before acting on a decision as the failure of that decision could affect more than just money, such as productivity…effectiveness…and reputation (Poirier et al., 2008, p. 211).

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA), more than 32 million workers are exposed to hazardous chemicals in over 3 million U.S. workplaces (Camplin, 2010). Hazmat Management and Hazmat incident management sound very similar. They actually are very different when you investigate their meaning. Hazmat Management mainly involves in hazardous materials management at any given worksite or company. It also includes the procurement, transportation, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials. An easier way to think about Hazmat Management is the day to day operations of hazardous materials. Companies and worksites need to encompass safety measures, training, and proper handling of hazardous materials. The enforcers of their respective program need to ensure proper markings on containers and materials are used within the proper limits. Additionally, there needs to be a keen eye for any safety concerns or hazards that need to be rectified. While working directly with these hazardous chemicals, it is of the utmost importance and even mandatory to ensure there is proper maintenance being conducted and safety measures are being practiced with these materials at all times and if or when an incident occurs. This is where hazmat incident management comes into play.
Knowing how to respond to a HAZMAT incident is critical to all occupational safety professionals as well as workers who deal with HAZMAT materials directly. When an incident occurs, workers should be prepared to respond using an eight step process, which includes: Site Management and Control, Identification of the Problem, Hazard and Risk Evaluation, Protective Clothing and Equipment, Information Management and Resource Coordination, Implementing Response Objectives, Decontamination, and Terminating the Incident.

Tired Ms. Larson took her classroom problems home with her.
She shared her concerns at an
informal cocktail party, particularly her frustration with teaching English in the Ethiopian government school. For three years, I’ve tried to get these girls to behave like normal human beings, to have some pride, to hold up their heads, look me in the eye, and answer a question in a voice I can hear without straining. They’re so bright; they learn as fast as the children back home, but they have no dignity. For all the good I’ve done here, I might as well have stayed home in Iowa.
The school day ended. Kebedetch walked stiffly home. The strange steel she had forced into her neck muscles seemed to have spread throughout her body. She fe rigid, brave, and frightened. Entering the gojo (small house or hut), Kebedetch was greeted warmly. Father asked the usual, daily question: What did you learn today? Kebedetch threw back her head, looked her father in the eye, and proclaimed in a loud, clear voice, Ethiopia is composed of twelve provinces plus the Federated State of Eritrea. . . .
Momma and Poppa talked late that night. What had happened to Kebedetch? She was no longer behaving as a normal human being.
Did you notice how she threw back her head like a man? asked Poppa. What has happened to her shyness as a woman?
And her voice, added Momma. How happy I am that our parents were not present to hear a daughter of ours speak with the voice of a foreigner.
She showed no modesty; she seemed to feel no pride. If she were normal, she would be ashamed to raise her head like that, being a girl-child, and to speak so loudly, Poppa added with a deep sigh.
Kebedetch has learned so much, said Momma. She knows more than I, and this has given me great joy. But if her learnings are making her a strange, ungentle, beast-like person, I do not want her to learn more. She is my only daughter.
Poppa pondered. Finally he shook his head and spoke. You are right, Mebrat; our daughter must not return to school. The new education is not good, and only the strongest can survive. I had hoped Kebedetch could learn and remain normal and gentle, could become a woman of dignity. The frightening behavior of hers tonight has convinced me. She has lost her sense of pride, lost her sense of shame, lost her dignity. She must not return to the school. We shall try to help her find herself again.
1. What specific nonverbal behaviors did Kebedetch’s parents find objectionable? What meanings had Ms. Larson ascribed to these behaviors? What meanings had Momma and Poppa ascribed to these behavior?
2. Within this story, what cuural information (values, attitudes, and expectations about parenting, education, etiquette, behavior of men and women, etc.) about the U.S. and Ethiopia is communicated through the words of Ms. Larson, Momma, and Poppa?
3. Should certain changes be made if Kebedetch is to return to school? If yes, describe the changes that should be implemented. If not, think of any consequences that might occur as a resu.
4. Was Ms. Larson teaching her Ethiopian students something valuable? What did she fail to take into consideration? How could she have prevented Kebedetch’s withdrawal from her classes?
Society Week 3 – Instructor Guidance
Lesson for Child Family and Society
Week Three: Motivators and Control
Yvette Morelon, MSW, LCSW, Instructor
Hello Class and Welcome to Week Three.
Listed Below are Important Points in Chapters Five and Six:
In early education, an extrinsic motivational base is set due to a students desire to succeed, moreover they do not want to fail and be looked upon negatively by their peers. The constant striving for extrinsic rewards causes the child to place an emphasis on attaining these rewards rather than their own effort. This aered perception is far from truthful because most of these rewards are out of the student’s control. For example, a child seeks the approval of the teacher, but doesn’t realize that the teacher’s mood could be influencing who he calls on and, moreover, what behaviors he praises. This false perception can be difficu to change because of social environment that exists within educational settings. Children avoid embarrassing situations as much as possible and if a child doesn’t volunteer to answer a question, then he cannot get it wrong. Failure is debilitating to a child’s education if that child is extrinsically motivated. Those children develop a learned helplessness as a resu of failure feedback whereas intrinsically motivated children will view a failed task as a challenged and attempt it again, which avoids the helplessness effects.
The process of learning self-control and self-discipline is linked very closely with how a child feels about themselves and their relationship to the world. It’s important that we help build and strengthen children’s ability to determine for themselves what’s right and wrong, and how to control their own behavior.
It’s very important to provide as many opportunities as possible for youngsters to make their own choices and decisions. But whenever we give a child a choice, we should be prepared to honor his decision. It’s also very important for children to experience the consequences of their decisions. In addition, helping them stick to decisions once they are made teaches youngsters to make responsible choices. But not everything is a choice; not everything is negotiable. Parents have to set boundaries with children and maintain rules.

To understand the broader context of cuural competence in heah care, there are a variety of
stakeholders involved in the delivery and support of heah care services whose perspectives must be considered.
According to Pérez and Luquis (2008, p. 46), cuural competence was defined by the 2000 Joint Committee on Heah Education and Promotion Terminology of AAHE as the ability of an individual to understand and respect values, attitudes, beliefs, and mores that differ across cuures, and to consider and respond to appropriately to these differences in planning, implementing, and evaluating heah education and promotion programs and interventions.
Considering this broad, interrelated complexity, reflect on the importance of cuural competence for heah care organizations, and for the heah and wellness of diverse groups.
In your initial post for this discussion, address the following scenario:
