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

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

walmart should be my company

In this topic you will select a publicly traded company and submit the name of

the company to the instructor for approval by the end of the topic. Note: You will need to have this step finalized before you can complete the assignment detailed below, so it is in your best interest to select and obtain approval as soon as possible.

Select a company that is public and enjoys extensive analyst coverage (e.g., Apple, GE, Southwest Airlines, Walgreen, Exxon Mobile) to insure access to sufficient financially oriented material regarding your chosen company. The more information available, the easier it will be to perform the financial analysis.

As you move through the nine steps in conducting your analysis, you will research the market at each step for relevant data on your chosen company, including analyst reports and market information. Disclose all assumptions you are making in the case study (e.g., revenue growth projections, expense controls) and provide supporting reasons and evidence behind those assumptions. As your case study analysis develops over the span of the course, you will synthesize the research data and outcomes of the nine-step assessment process in order to assess the long-term financial health of the chosen company.

Component 1:

For this assignment, apply the following two steps of the nine-step assessment process to develop a 500-word analysis of the company you have selected and which has been approved by your course instructor:

  1. Analysis of Fundamentals: Goals, Strategy, Market, Competitive Technology, Regulatory, and Operating Characteristics
  2. Analysis of Fundamentals: Revenue Outlook

Note: You will be required to resubmit this assignment, revised to incorporate all instructor feedback, along with the other three component assignments as one comprehensive submission in Topic 8. To save time later in the course, consider addressing any feedback soon after this assignment has been graded and returned to you.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

Question

The Mazatec people, among others in remote rural areas of Mexico had a long tradition of

using Psilocybemushrooms in ways that were intended to help people deal with physical and emotional problems. Through the work of Richard Schultes, Gordon Wasson and others, the world became aware of the hallucinogenic properties of these mushrooms. This discovery and others that followed added to the sum of human knowledge, but also had negative consequences. Outsiders traveled to Mexico to seek access to hallucinogenic mushrooms, disrupting the lives of local residents and making it more difficult for them to continue traditional practices that had been a part of their culture for many generations. Elsewhere in the world, hallucinogenic mushrooms were abused to the point that most governments elected to make their possession illegal. Your assignment is to address the following questions.

1) Do you think the dissemination of information about Psilocybe mushrooms following their discovery in Mexico should have been handled in a different manner? If so, explain how this could have been done in a way that might have engendered fewer negative consequences. If not, explain why you think the manner in which the situation was handled was appropriate.

2) In general, do you think it is desirable and/or necessary to deny or restrict public access to certain information? If so, under what circumstances would this be justified, who would make this decision and how would limitations on access be accomplished (e.g., through laws, standards of professional conduct, or education to achieve shared societal values)? If you favor making all information freely available, explain why you think this is a better policy.

You can refer to your notes from recent lectures for background information related to these questions. You can also draw on other sources of information if you wish, including those that are available on Canvas: Resources / Optional reading / Lectures 13-16. No references are required, but if you take ideas or quotations directly from any source other than lecture notes, a citation of that source should be included. Any style of citation is acceptable.

Your answer to each question should be presented in paragraph form. There is no upper or lower limit on length. You should aim for an answer that is complete but concise. Be sure your ideas are clearly expressed. Proof-read your answers carefully to avoid errors that will compromise your intended meaning.

The assignment is worth 80 points, 40 per question. For each of the two questions, points will be awarded as follows:

In my opinion, the information dissemination concerning the Psilocybe mushrooms should have
been handled in a different manner. I stand by this because in such a case, the mushrooms are…

This week, we follow advances in science and specifically in astronomy. Through brief biographies of some of the

great figures in science, we examine the public influence and theological implications of their work. Finally, we have an opportunity to compare past understandings of the universe with our understanding of it today.

This week’s primary objectives are:

  • Accurately and effectively communicate ideas, information, arguments, and messages to present material in a historical context.
  • Investigate and evaluate historical information from global, social and ethical perspectives to guide decision making.
  • Convey historical information by writing and speaking clearly and appropriately for different audiences and with an appreciation of diverse viewpoints.
  • Demonstrate a chronological understanding of the different peoples, events, and cultures that have shaped human civilization.

Three biographies on Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton provide an overview of the life and times of these greats as well as their legacies.

Tully’s article on the size of the universe allows you to compare the understanding of those in the past to our knowledge today.

  • Student was able to examine, assess, evaluate, and/or analyze course content and key concepts.
  • Student provided a clear and well-developed response to the question.
  • In today’s business words businesses and agencies in both private and public sector are using wiki’s in both their internal and external websites allowing teams, user communities, and the public to crowdsource knowledge in electronic form. Using wikis is a great way for teams and other groups to collaborate on writing projects, from brief articles to long reports and reference works. However, wikis require a unique approach to writing. Individual writers must relinquish traditional expectations of authorship, including recognition and control (the value of a wiki stems from the collective insight of all its contributors).

    For a business, the wiki’s authors should keep some things in mind when contributing to the wiki. When setting up the site, management should encourage all team members to look at what has been written, and offer improvement if possible. This could simply be with a standard operating procedure for ordering office supplies. The more detailed and user friendly it is, the more beneficial it will be. Using a wiki to writea standard operating procedure like this, is a great way to succession plan for management. In addition, writers should use page templates and other formatting options to make sure the content is consistent with the rest of the wiki. Wikis also provide editing and commenting capabilities, so participants should use the appropriate tool for each activity. Finally, new users should take advantage of the sandbox, which is a safe, nonpublished section of the wiki where contributors can practice editing and writing. (Bovée and Thill, pp. 212-213)

    There is a three-step writing process for wikis to help you be successful. This depends on if you plan on creating a new wiki, adding material to an existing wiki, or revising material. If creating a new wiki, the writer should think about what the long-term plan is with the wiki, this will help them develop a template, guidelines, and policy for the wiki. If the writer wants to contribute to a existing wiki, they should figure out how material will fit into the wiki in a positive way. Adding to a existing wiki may be easier than creating a whole new one, as it will help the writer understand the layout of the wiki and now the system works. If there is a wiki the writer does not agree with, there is a discussion facility to share your concerns with other contributors. (Bovée and Thill, pp. 213)

    The wiki environment is a great place to get information, provide your expertise on a subject with new information, add to current wikis, and discuss with others how a wiki should be formulated. Wiki’s can be used to organize a company’s products and information, as a training environment for staff, and as a knowledge base. There are endless uses for wiki’s in a business, and as long as those use it consistently and accurately it can be a great asset to a company’s success.

    Question

    In The Weah of Nations, Adam Smith argued, The interest of the dealers, however, in any particular

    branch of trade or manufactures, is always in some respects different from, and even opposite to, that of the public. To widen the market and to narrow the competition, is always the interest of the dealers. To widen the market may frequently be agreeable enough to the interest of the public; but to narrow the competition must always be against it, and can serve only to enable the dealers, by raising their profits above what they naturally would be, to levy, for their own benefit, an absurd tax upon the rest of their fellow-citizens. The proposal of any new law or regulation of commerce which comes from this order ought always to be listened to with great precaution, and ought never to be adopted till after having been long and carefully examined, not only with the most scrupulous, but with the most suspicious attention. It comes from an order of men whose interest is never exactly the same with that of the public, who have generally an interest to deceive and even to oppress the public, and who accordingly have, upon many occasions, both deceived and oppressed it.

    Question

    According to my text The practice of public relations: 2010 custom edition by F.P. Sietel, attitudes are

    based on a number of characteristics. How do you elaborate on how public relations can take advantage of one of these characteristics to shape public opinion. I want to know how to describe and explain at least one example of how this characteristic was a focus of a selected public relations campaign.

    I also read that one goal of public relations is to manage public opinion on a particular topic. For the public relations campaign selected, analyze the methods used to shape public opinion. How do can you justify why these methods were either successful or unsuccessful.

    You have applied for a public relations (PR) position with a RM 10 2 million savings and loan association

    Question

    You have applied for a public relations (PR) position with a RM 10.2 million savings and loan association,

    a conservative financial institution that has been in existence for over 50 years. The organization has never employed a PR person before. Now that its assets have risen above 10 million, however, the president of the institution feels it is time to hire someone to ‘do the PR’.

    During an interview, the president admits he is not sure what PR is, but he is fairly sure he wants the person he hires to plan promotions and stage events that will attract new customers, write stories that will get free space and time in the local media and start an employee publication. The president also states that he is open to suggestions about the position and asks you to explain how you would establish a professional, effective PR program if you were hired.

    Think of a firm that relates to your major program of study where you currently work or a firm that interests

    Question

    Think of a firm that relates to your major program of study, where you currently work, or a firm that interests

    you. This firm can be in the private sector, a government entity, a military unit, or a public sector firm.

    Provide some background information on the firm and provide an example of how this firm has instituted technological change. Describe this change. Determine the nature of the technological change, and explain how the change either increased outputs (positive technological change) or decreased outputs (negative technological change). How is the firm operating more efficiently or how has the firm increased production? What economic model might apply? In your opinion, what sort of technological change might take place in the future?

    You may have to do some research for this assignment. Consider doing an interview with a person who works for the firm. You may also use the Internet. If you use the Internet, avoid biased sites such as press releases or public relations sections of the firm’s website. Be sure to cite your sources.

    Question

    PLEASE PROVIDE PROFESSIONAL LEVEL WORK

    For this paper, the following elements must

    be addressed:

    • Describe a current IT-related ethical issue: Since this is a paper exercise, not a real-time situation,you may want to construct a brief scenariowhere this issue comes into play, and thus causes an ethical dilemma. The dilemma may affect you, your family, your job, or your company; or it may be a matter of public policy or law that affects the general populace.See the list below for a list of suggested issues, which may be a source of ethical dilemmas.
    • Define a concise problem statementthat isextractedfrom the above description or scenario. It is bestif you define a specific problem caused by the dilemma, that needs a specific ethical decision to be made, that will solve the dilemma. Be aware that if it is a matter of public policy or law, that it may require a regulatory body or congressional approval to take action to implement a solution.
    • Analyze your problemusing one of the structured decision-making frameworks chosen from Module 2.Make sure that you identify the decision-making framework utilized. In addition, the steps in the decision-making framework selected must be used as major headings in the Analysis section.
    • Consider and state the impact of the decision that you madeon an individual, an organization, stakeholders, customers suppliers, and the environment, as applicable!
    • State and discuss the applicable ethical theory from Module 1that supports your decision.

    Concerning your paper:

    • Prepare a minimum 3- 5 page, double-spaced paper and submit it to the LEO Assignments Module as an attached Microsoft Word file.
    • Provide appropriate American Psychological Association (APA) source citations for all sources you use. In addition to critical thinking and analysis skills, your paper should reflect appropriate grammar and spelling, good organization, and proper business-writing style.

    For example, Kidder’s approach has nine steps, which are:

    • Recognize that there is a moral issue.
    • Determine the actor (whose moral issue is it?).
    • Gather the relevant facts.
    • Test for right-versus-wrong issues.
    • Test for right-versus-right paradigms (what sort of dilemma is this?).
    • Apply the resolution principles (ends-based, rule-based, or care-based).
    • Investigate the trilemma options (look for common ground or compromise).
    • Make the decision.
    • Revisit and reflect on the decision. (Kidder, 1995, p. 183-187)

    Reminder: Each of the steps for whatever framework that you select must be a major heading in the Analysis section of your paper.

    Here are some suggested issues for you to consider, the additional text is designed to help you flesh out the issue:

    Question 1: Effective Rate of Protection

    Assume that country Pacifico is an open economy

    and the world price of cars is $10. The domestic demand for cars in Pacifico is Q=90-P, and the domestic supply curve of cars in Pacifico is Q=2P. Assume that the government of Pacifico would like to increase the production of cars by domestic producers. In order to support this goal, the government of Pacifico imposes an import tariff of $10/car for imported cars.

    1. What is the market equilibrium for cars in Pacifico before the government impose the import tariff? (How many cars were demanded by Pacifico residents, how many cars were supplied by domestic producers, how many cars were imported?)
    2. What is the effect of the import tariff?

    The

    Question

    I am needing someone to proof read a paper and assess for punctuation and grammar errors.

    The

    public heah nurse along with the community heah nurse both play very important roles within the nursing community. The roles while similar, there are some differences noted. In this paper I will be addressing the differences between the two, differences in the levels of prevention, the roles and responsibilities, and current issues that are facing the community and public heah nurse.

    According to the Association of Public Heah Nurses, their practice is to promote and protect the heah of population while not only using their nursing knowledge but to look at social aspects along with public heah science. The uimate goal of a public heah nurse is to promote overall heah and to help in the prevention of disease and disability (Association of Public Heah Nurses [APHN], 2019).

    According to an annual meeting held by the American Public Heah Association 2013 it was discussed how the termonlogy such as public heah nursing and community heah nursing are used interchangeably. The document goes on to state that public heah nursing action occurs through community applications of theory, evidence and a commitment to heah equity. When looking at the two, you will see that a community heah nursing will typically focus on wellness visits, management of a patients acute or chronic illness. When examining community heah, you will see that this includes heah efforts within a community. This is made possible through the government and private funded organizations such as the American Heart Association and the American Red Cross. The public heah nurse will plan their care surrounding an entire population base. The population base that the public heah nurse is responsible for can range from working at the federal level, down to the local level (McEwen Nies, 2015, p. 6). The public heah nurse will help promote well-being within a population by promoting an environment in which the individuals within a population care be well (American Public Heah Association [APHA], 2013). Regardless if the nurses focus is on an individual or community basis, their focus is on prevention of disease and heah promotion versus the diagnosis and treatment of disease

    Within the field of heah care, we know that there are three levels of prevention used. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention primary prevention looks at the intervention before a heah issue takes place. This can come in the form of vaccinations, changing eating habits, elimination of tobacco products, weight loss strategies, and banning substances that have been noted cause a disease or heah condition (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2019). Again, within this stage, we are looking at prevention and education. Nursing activities during the primary prevention phase can come in the form of public service announcements, free conferences or seminars discussing the benefits or primary prevention. I believe that also adding some type of incentive may help promote primary prevention. For example, an individual receiving a discount or reward for utilizing their local gym so many times per month.

    Secondary Prevention is looked at as a screening process to help identify diseases in their earliest stages, this is done before the onset of the signs and or symptoms become noticeable. This can be accomplished through measures taken such as a woman receiving regular mammograms to help detect breast cancer early on. Another example would include an individual receiving regular visits by their primary care provider to have their cholesterol evaluated to help decrease their risk for stroke and or heart attack [CDC], 2019. Nursing activities during the secondary prevention phase can come in the form of free blood pressure and or blood glucose checks to help assess for pre hypertension and or diabetes.

    The Tertiary Prevention phase is aimed towards management of a disease after an individual has already been diagnosed. This goal during the Tertiary phase is to slow or stop the disease from further progressing [CDC], 2019. An example of Tertiary prevention would include a patient who had been a smoker for the past thirty years had recently quit after being diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or a patient who has been diagnosed with cancer but has recently started radiation or chemotherapy. Nursing activities during tertiary prevention may come in the form of the public heah nurse providing the patient with resources in order to stop smoking or financial resources that may be available to them to help offset the cost of their cancer treatments.

    The roles and responsibilities of a public heah and or community heah nurse are to focus on the overall improvement of heah within a certain population or a community to help recognize any unmet needs. Public heah nurses use their skills to help support the heah of a population. Some of the responsibilities of nurses within these roles include practices such as analysis and assessments of individuals within a population and or community. Data can then be taken, then used in order to implement a plan of care. The nurses within this setting also help in policy development. Policy development in this setting helps families and individuals within the area they serve. Communication with families and other individuals must be done in order to determine the knowledge level and attitudes about the types of medical services that are needed within a population base. Other roles and responsibilities of both the public heah nurse and community heah nurse also include cuural competency, financial management and lastly, leadership programs (Nursesources, 2019). Public heah nurses use what is called The Intervention Wheel as a framework for their specific practice. By utilizing the Intervention Wheel, it helps highlight their particular role as a public heah nurse. The public heah nurse role also includes tasks such as collaboration, advocacy, planning, and policy development (Nies McEwen, 2015).

    Through research, it was found that there are many issues that community and public heah nurses face. For example, the number of public and community heah nurses were noted to be subpar. This makes it difficu for these nurses to perform their job at the individual and population level (Misund Dahl, 2018). Additional issues that face public heah nursing include the enactment of the Affordable Care Act (Nies McEwen, 2015). There have been issues between other members of public heah speciaies and public heah or community nurses. The reason for the issues resus from each public heah disciplines is because there may be a difference between the way a public heah nurse manages a patient compared to another discipline. In the public/community heah nursing profession there is much autonomy, it makes it difficu to assure competency Minnesota Department of Heah-Public Heah Nursing Council, 2016, p. 7).
