It seems more prudent to take your cue from the customer advisory board than from the focus group, so you’ve

decided to focus on the issue of price. But slashing price would have major ramifications, including a hit to your bottom line and a possible price war with competition. Before taking this step, you need more research to confirm whether or not the exploratory data was correct.

The relentless pressure to hold down costs leads you to consider a relatively inexpensive survey using the company’s mail panel. Like any mail survey, it would enable you to reach a diverse group – not just social media fans or other Internet regulars. You could develop a simple, standardized instrument asking respondents to rate the importance of price and other factors, like performance, in their purchase decisions. But you know that people who take time to participate in panels may differ significantly from the general population.

It may be worth spending more to use mail survey of a national consumer sample. You’d feel more confident moving forward based on resus from a large, relatively unbiased pool of participants. Low response rates could be a problem, but enclosing coupons or other incentives may help.

B) National Consumer Sample

The labor participation rate was down to 62.8% in June of 2017, or down over 3

percentage points since 2008. Each percentage point here equals about 2.5 million Americans. Why are more than 7.5 million previously employed Americans no longer looking for a job today? Why are a near record 95 million Americans (or 15 million more than in 2008) not looking for work? Are they discouraged? Are they finding solace in the rich welfare benefits being paid out?

Why are Social Security Disability payments being paid to over 2 million more people since 2008 and why are SNAP (food stamp program) payments up from 28 million recipients in 2008 to over 43 million recipients in 2016?

If many of these 7.5 million people (assuming the old normal labor participation rate held, remember, it held for thirty years in a row, before Obama) were looking for and finding jobs, it is a good bet that the American economy would be lots more robust than it presently is today. Do Americans collectively have the political will to produce more, instead of only worry about consumption? What might happen if we backed off passing new regulations, revoked ObamaCare and Dodd/Frank and lowered marginal tax rates significantly?

aggression and apply concepts from social psychology to it, it is important to examine one of the most fundamental social psychological concepts: construals. A construal is defined as the way in which people perceive, comprehend, and interpret the social world. The concept of construal has its roots in Gesta psychology—a school of psychology that stresses the importance of studying the subjective way in which an object appears in people’s minds, rather than the objective, physical attributes of the object.

Social psychologists have found that two motives are of primary importance in determining human thoughts and behavior: the need to feel good about ourselves and the need to be accurate. Self-esteem is people’s evaluation of their own self-worth, or the extent to which people see themselves as good, competent, and decent. Most people have a strong need to maintain a high self-esteem. This need can clash with the need for accuracy, referred to as the social cognition motive, leading people to distort their perceptions of reality (e.g., by explaining their personal deficiencies in more positive ways) so as to preserve self-esteem. Such distortions are more spins on the facts rather than complete delusions.

Consider, for instance, a man who proposed marriage and had his proposal rejected in front of his girlfriend’s entire family. This person faces a conflict between the need to maintain self-esteem and the need to be accurate. What should he think about being rejected by his girlfriend? He could protect his self-esteem and assume it was not his fau at all that she said no, or he could try to get an accurate assessment of what happened (e.g., perhaps proposing in front of her family was a bad idea; perhaps his relationship was not as solid as he thought) so it will not happen again. Social psychologists study people’s subjective construals of situations and how these construals are influenced by their self-esteem and social cognition motives.

An important application of this study is to better understand aggressive behavior, a social psychology topic that has far-reaching implications for individuals, groups, and society as a whole. One of the most important reasons for studying aggression is the goal of reducing violence. For example, individuals can be counseled to change the parameters of their situation, trained in communication and problem-solving skills, or provided with ongoing interventions such as anti-bullying programs. Social psychologists seek answers to questions such as: In aggressive situations, do people learn to be aggressive or is their behavior a function of their environment? Do some people have aggressive attributes and tendencies or do they become aggressive because of their unique situations? Are individuals from some cuures more aggressive than those from others?

A fundamental difference between social psychologists and lay people is the application of this construal approach in understanding how aggressive situations and other types of behavior arise. Social psychologists recognize and examine the power of the situation in influencing people. Lay people often cite the situation to explain their own behaviors, but they overlook the situation and instead cite personality to explain others’ behaviors. This is termed the fundamental attribution error.

For this Discussion, you consider why some individuals are aggressive toward others and how aggression escalates or can be reduced. You will compare how social psychologists and lay people might each explain various types of aggressive behavior, and in doing so, apply many of the concepts you explored in the Learning Resources this week, including construals, the fundamental attribution error, and the sometimes competing motives of self-esteem and social cognition.

Gender stereotypes influence and perpetuate what is known as patriarchy. Patriarchy is a concept that considers

men the holders of power and authority resuing in domination of all sectors throughout society. Men have held the most powerful positions in the world and have guided our laws, policies, and cuure. Patriarchy not only impacts society on a global scale through structural oppression but also our daily lives. It influences individual relationships and the daily interactions amongst husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, and colleagues. Feminist theory posits that men use violence in attempt to maintain this power and privilege. Domestic abuse and sexual assau are forms of violence that clearly exert power and control over a person. While abuse can be demonstrated by both men and women and survivors of abuse could be of either gender, statistics show that women are the overwhelming victims of abuse and violence. Patriarchy and the sexist and misogynistic viewpoints propagate views of women as subordinates who are meant to be kept in their place. Violence is a form of managing and maintaining a male’s role in society. To prepare for this Discussion, review the Johnson case. Reflect on the gender and sexism stereotypes expressed and the essential skills for social work practice you have learned throughout the program.

To prepare: View Johnson (Episode 2) and consider the gender and sexist stereotypes made around sexual assau by the professional in the episode. These stereotypes may revolve around gender, life circumstances, socioeconomic status, and education level.

By Day 3

Post an explanation of gender and sexist stereotypes and assumptions around sexual assau made by a professional you observe in the case study episode. Explain how these stereotypes perpetuate violence against women. Apply social work skills for social change advocacy to address sexism. Explain how social workers can respond to the stereotypes and assumptions you have identified in the Johnson case and how you might advocate for social change related to sexism while working with families, clients, and groups and collaborating with other professionals. Be specific about the skills you would apply and the actions you would take.

How do these stereotypes perpetuate violence against women?

Oil and gas has become a huge fossil fuel offered in Central Asia. In particular, oil and gas is most aboundantly found in the west side of Central Asia (MapMaster). There are pipelines and basins located in Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and Azerbaijan (MapMaster).

Economic opportunity surfaced when foreign interest was attracted by the large amounts of fossil fuels (Aslund 2003). Kazakstan, being the counrty with the least amount of debt and the most amount of oil to offer, is the top trader in the group of countries (Aslund 2003). China eventually bought out the rights to develop two oil fields in Kazakstan for $9 billion (Christoffersen 1998).

With all of this economic development, leads to social development as well. Many of the countries in Central Asia were and still are struggling with poverty and a high death rate. This has decreased in areas that are more involved in fossil fuel trade (Ishkanian 2006). The trade of oil and gas has offered new jobs and opportunities for the citizens of the countries. This has socially developed them for the better.

Hi! This is a geopolitics class. We are going to write an essay for the exam. I need help for preparing for the

essay prompts. Below is the study guide. Please give me some writing suggestions in detail. Thanks a lot!

Analytical Essays

The Modern Geopolitical Imagination. Be able to discuss the socio-historical construction of the modern geopolitical imagination as defined by Agnew and as elaborated on throughout the first half of the semester in class. Be sure to include in your answer an exploration of the four main elements that comprise the modern geopolitical imagination, providing examples to illustrate how each works to inform our vision(s) of the geopolitical world and our place in it.

a. Note: This essay may appear in the form of a geopolitical speech or statement that you will be asked to ‘decode’.

Visualizing Global Space: Mackinder’s Geographic Pivot of History. Provide a critical geopolitical analysis of Mackinder’s geographic pivot of history as an example of the geopolitical element of visualizing global space. Be sure you can describe Mackinder’s geopolitical world as a structured whole – the 3 regions of his map and his arguments for this geopolitical representation of threat. In your answer, be sure you are able to discuss the context (re: Britain as hegemonic empire) in which Mackinder’s paper was written, the physical geographic rationale behind the ‘heartland theory’, the historical significance of the region in Mackinder’s geopolitical imagining, and the turn-of-the-century geopolitical context in which Mackinder delivered his address. Briefly discuss the continuing relevance of Mackinder’s geopolitical vision for US Cold War geopolitics, and why it remained relevant.

A World of Territorial Nations and States. Be sure you are able to discuss this element in geopolitical coding, the ways of seeing world geopolitics that lie behind it, and the banal nationalism through which this way of seeing is maintained. Also, discuss the consequences of this way of seeing that Agnew has labeled the territorial trap, providing examples from readings and class discussions. Be able to use the construction of American identity through Captain America Pre-WW II Comics (process of identification and differentiation by creating/disciplining/contrasting with the Other) to illustrate.

Popular Geopolitics and Time into Space during the Cold War: Star Trek representations of the First, Second and Third Worlds. Be able to discuss the concept of mapping time onto space through the use of the Star Trek episode we watched and analyzed in class, particularly in terms of its representation of the First, Second and Third Worlds, and its conversion of time into space in legitimizing geopolitical behavior on the ‘Third World’ planet (and US geopolitical behavior in Vietnam).

Time into Space: From Imperialism and Social Darwinism to Developmentalism. Be able to discuss this element of geopolitical coding, using the example of imperialism/social Darwinism and how this way of mapping time onto space morphed into developmentalism with the onset of the Cold War. Be able to critically analyze the basic tenets of developmentalism as a non-communist manifesto in world politics.

Pursuit of Primacy: Hegemonic Cycles. Be able to discuss this element of geopolitical coding, the two models of hegemonic cycles discussed in class (Modelski and World Economy Models), and be able to trace the period of US hegemony in the 20th century. Be able to bring President Bush Sr’s State of the Union address (New World Order) into the discussion of how primacy/hegemony are asserted in practical geopolitics.

Infants are hardwired to be interested in their caregivers and others from the moment of birth



Infants are hard-wired to be interested in their caregivers and others from the moment of birth. This

inevitably leads to social interactions with those interesting people, and uimately facilitates attachment to them. Given their natural social tendencies, from the first few weeks of life infants connect socially and emotionally with their caregivers in give-and-take exchanges, mimicking verbal interactions of older individuals. These exchanges reflect a caregiver-infant synchrony that is important for the child’s heahy development.

Sadly, not all infants are exposed to environments that provide interesting social interactions with others. Worldwide, many orphanages and other institutions that provide care for infants do not have enough staff to provide adequate nurturance and social interaction. As a resu, infants are left in their cribs unattended, other than to be fed or have their diaper changed.

In what ways do you think this problem affects the psychosocial development of children, and what can be done to minimize those effects?
