Instructions
Select a scholarly journal article (no older than 2017) relevant to the course regarding Homeland Security or Homeland Defense. You will conduct an article review of that scholarly journal article. It must be related to the course or course materials but should not be one of the provided course readings. The intent is for students to do some external research away from the provided references and find an article in the AMU/APUS Library. Students should search the library’s online databases, such as ProQuest, EbscoHost, and others, to find scholarly or peer-reviewed articles. Web address, blogs, news sites are not scholarly. Stick to what you find in one of the journal search engines in the library.
Additionally, the review of the journal article is an evaluation of the article’s strengths, weaknesses, and validity. It is used to inform of the article’s value through your explanation, interpretation, and analysis. As you do this, ask the major questions that are central to the review process:
What is the purpose of this article?
Why is it important to investigate or examine the subject of the article?
How are the authors carrying out the task? Are their methods and comments appropriate and adequate to the task?
What do they claim to have found out? Are the findings clearly stated?
How does this advance knowledge in the field?
Hint: These would make really good section titles for your paper.
Your work should consist of:
Introduction (this will have a well-defined purpose statement in your intro paragraph that provides guidance to the reader about what you are going to cover in your paper)
Body (feel free to use sub-section headings as needed)
Conclusion (this wraps up the key points of your work and brings your paper to a logical conclusion)
Technical Requirements
Your paper must be at a minimum of 5 pages (Title and Reference pages do not count towards the minimum limit).
A peer reviewed journal article should be used.
Other references may be used, but only to support the review of the primary journal article.
Type in Times New Roman, 12 point and double space.
Students will follow the current APA Style as the sole citation and reference style used in written work submitted as part of coursework.
Points will be deducted for the use of Wikipedia or encyclopedic type sources. It is highly advised to utilize books, peer-reviewed journals, articles, archived documents, etc.
All submissions will be graded using the assignment rubric.

The Letter of recommendation I need looked at is the one that says “For my Nurse

The Letter of recommendation I need looked at is the one that says “For my Nurse manager to sign letter of recommendation” This letter was originally meant for my Professor but she passed away abruptly and was unable to sign. So now I am having my Nurse manager sign this letter of recommendation. Can we change to where it reads that it is from my Nurse manager and not from my professor? I have also attached several other documents to help with the LOR. Please let me know if you have any questions at all. Thank you so much!

Policy development is a core competency required of Chief Information Security O

Policy development is a core competency required of Chief Information Security Officers. In order to develop policy, however, it is necessary that the CISO and other business leaders understand the underlying issues and, where technology is involved, they must also understand those issues as well.
Read this article: https://www.bigcommerce.com/blog/social-media-advertising/#the-6-best-social-networks-for-ecommerce-advertising
Choose one of the social media platforms listed in the article above and research its privacy policy. Then prepare an “expert opinion” paper for the senior leaders in your organization. (If you cannot find the privacy policy for a given social media platform, choose a different platform.)
For your opinion paper, you must
– perform additional research and then write your informed opinion as to the privacy issues that exist or may exist for that platform
– identify specific privacy issues which could adversely affect Padgett-Beale
– identify any additional issues with that platform which could adversely affect Padgett-Beale’s cybersecurity posture
Answer the following questions in your paper:
1. What do you think about your selected platform’s approach to privacy?
2. How would the platform’s privacy policy impact an organization that is contemplating using the platform for advertising and marketing?
3. Which of the social media services provided by the platform would you allow Padgett-Beale’s marketing department to use?
4. Should Padgett-Beale’s employees in general be permitted to use the platform during the work day (using company networks and/or IT resources). What risks are involved with permitting such usage?
5. what type of policy would you recommend that Padgett-Beale adopt to govern the organization’s use of social media platforms for marketing and other forms of internal and external communications?
Please include an introduction, analysis, and conclusion to complete the format. Post your 5 to 7 paragraph “expert opinion” as a reply to this topic. Remember to cite your sources and include your reference list at the end of your posting.

When The Force Awakens was released, everyone was beyond-their-wits excited, tho

When The Force Awakens was released, everyone was beyond-their-wits excited, though that excitement faded somewhat as time passed and the public realized how similar the film was to the original Star Wars film. The Last Jedi, on the other hand, was deeply controversial, with some praising it as a breath of fresh air and others critiquing it as deeply anti-Star Wars.
But everyone I talked to loved The Mandalorian, a show which thoughtfully engages with not only Star Wars but also the things that influenced Star Wars, especially the films of Akira Kurosawa.
It might be quite difficult to chart out the ways the hero’s journey manifests across several episodes of a television show, but for these episodes, here are some things to keep in mind:
Remember that the hero’s journey is scalable. We were able to apply it to the very short fan film Hoshino and we could likely conduct a reading of the journey that spans across all three original trilogy films. Many steps might even be included in a single scene. So, you might find yourself charting out a specific aspect of the journey in a particular slice of an episode, rather than across all three episodes.
As with the maps for the sequel trilogy, you may also look for archetypal Star Wars characters in this map rather than the archetypes that stick strictly with Vogler’s interests
You may also write about patterns and archetypes present in The Mandalorian outside of the episodes we have watched for class. However, if you choose to do so, you must write with enough detail and analysis that I can follow along without consulting the other episodes of the show, as I do not have time to rewatch the entire series just to keep up with your assignment.

General Assignment Overview
Each week (starting with The Empire Strikes Back), students will be expected to complete detailed story maps of a work under review. These maps will be due the week after we view a particular film—all deadlines will be posted to Canvas. There will be eleven of these assignments given throughout the semester. The score for the lowest of these will be dropped. They will be due prior to class on the dates assigned below.
There will not be a story map assigned for The Hidden Fortress.
These story maps will require the student to complete a detailed summary of how the stages of the hero’s journey are or are not fulfilled in the work under examination OR a detailed summary of the archetypal “masks” present in the major characters of the work. This summary should be written in paragraph format. Samples of longer analyses of this sort can be found in the “Looking Back on the Journey” section of The Writer’s Journey. These assignments should not be submitted as bulleted lists.
Students are expected to summarize the fulfillment of a stage or the presence of an archetype in great detail. This is not an argumentative paper, but you are presenting an argument of sorts. For example, in A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi is clearly wearing the mask of the Mentor by training Luke in the ways of the Force. This is most clearly demonstrated in the scene where Luke practices deflecting lasers from the floating remote while on the Millennium Falcon. However, there are moments when Obi-Wan displays the role of the Trickster archetype as well, such as when he tells the stormtroopers “this is not the droid you’re looking for” or when he uses the Force to distract the stormtroopers on the Death Star while he disables the tractor beam. It’s also possible to examine Obi-Wan as a Hero as he disables the tractor beam and later fights Darth Vader, eventually transcending life and death as the Hero often does.
In regard to stages of the journey, we could look specifically to Hoshino in the film of the same name. She crosses a threshold when she uses the Force to call her master’s lightsaber to her hand—you’ll notice the saber passes through fire in order to reach her. She then leaves the safety and security of the fire and her master’s guidance in order to experiment with the weapon in the darkness beyond, essentially moving into an Extraordinary World. This is true even though the film uses the Ordinary/Extraordinary World dynamic elsewhere by moving back and forth between past and present: the Ordinary World is the world of the blinded Master Hoshino, and the Extraordinary World is the world of the not-yet-blinded student Ko. (Even the color palettes are different!) After Ko acquires the lightsaber, she approaches a cave filled with monsters, who knock the weapon back into her eyes. She loses her sight, but it is implied that she learned an important lesson (indeed, this is the last time we see anything in the flashback world—all of the remaining content takes place in the present with Master Hoshino, suggesting there is was nothing left to show us in the flashbacks because she had nothing left to learn).
You would write a summary of the masks in a way similar to what I have done above, although you would want to reference the Vogler and Campbell texts if possible, and you would want to supply more details to support your claims.
It is not necessary to work with the entire plot of the film when mapping out the hero’s journey, because the hero’s journey is flexible and scalable. However, students should carefully observe the way all stages may or may not be present in the work, and should be thoughtful about the way the journey works continuously through the film. There may be many Calls to Adventure in the film, or the Refusal of the Call may come from a Mentor character refusing the call on the Hero’s behalf.
Students should keep in mind that the story of the hero’s journey is principally one of maturation. They are not always coming-of-age narratives, but they are tales where individuals frequently must acquire new knowledge to overcome foes but also to learn an important moral lesson. Often, they are tales of transformation: Luke becomes a Rebel hero and Ko becomes a Jedi Master. Your goal is not just to line up stages like pieces of a puzzle, but also to elaborate upon the psychological and narrative function of each stage (or archetype) and explain how the fulfillment or subversion of that stage alters the work.

For this assignment, you will write a 7-8 page research paper that centers on an argument. To make that argument you will analyze a cultural image or set of images. Unlike a report, you will be expected to produce an original, nuanced, and thesis-driven argument. In service of this argument, you will be required to incorporate at least six sources, four of which must be academic. The purpose of this paper is to enter into a scholarly conversation on your topic of choice. The range of possible topics for this paper is wide; this is an opportunity to explore a topic that is related to the field of study that you plan to enter at UD or simply something that interests you. You should carefully consider your topic for this project as you will explore this topic through multiple publishs.You will spend a lot of time with this topic, this assignment cannot be completed the night before. The best topics are ones that excite and interest you.
Your paper must include at least 6 sources, four of which must be scholarly (books or scholarly journal articles, if you have a question about whether or not a source is scholarly, feel free to ask me about it) and two can be popular or primary sources. Note that this is the minimum number of sources that must be included, feel free to include more, as long as you engage with them usefully and honestly.
Your thesis for this project should be an arguable claim on which you can take a stand supported by a thesis statement. If you are answering a question with a simple yes or no, then you are not writing an argumentative essay. “Guns should be banned,” would be a bad thesis statement, while “Contemporary Superhero films promote a militaristic worldview” is a much better thesis statement. Note how the first statement could be answered with a simple yes or no and has no specific image or images to analyze, while the second is more gray and focuses on a specific set of images (superhero films).
Off-Limit Topics:
Gun Control
Abortion Laws
Weed Legalization
What Types of Images Can I Use?
For this paper, I’m thinking of the term “image” broadly. That means it can be things that are obviously images, like art pieces, films, social media posts etc. But, it can also be less obvious. You could look at advertising, fashion, architecture, picture books, book covers, and much more. As long as your topic has some visual component it will probably work.

Assignment Instructions Now that you’ve read about Peer Reviewing Technical Wri

Assignment Instructions
Now that you’ve read about Peer Reviewing Technical Writing, it’s time to put those concepts to use!
IMPORTANT: You’ll notice that “Page 2” of this week’s reading has you download a sample copy of a peer review letter. You’ll want to refer to that as your template for this worksheet.
Once you have reviewed the peer review sample document in your reading as noted above, check out this crazy sample of a confusing piece of technical writing:
http://www.impactonthenet.com/rg-m1.html Links to an external site.
This is the document you’ll be offering peer feedback on (the warhead storage instructions).
Use the format of the peer review sample (making up any information that you don’t have, such as names and emails). You’ll notice that the document you’ll be offering suggestions about is short–don’t let that stop you! Remember that you can not only point out areas for improvement, but also note why those areas are problematic and how they can be improved.
Your document should:
Be 12 pt, Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins, double spaced.
Include 3-4 suggestions, each a paragraph in length (with a minimum of 3 sentences per paragraph).

For this assignment, you will apply your understanding of different types of bia

For this assignment, you will apply your understanding of different types of biases to develop strategies to improve learning while mitigating or taking advantage of those biases. You will select two learning techniques from the Common Learning Techniques white paper (assigned reading for Session 2, see link below) (you may not select ‘No Strategy’). Describe how biases and heuristics make the technique more or less effective. You will also develop a novel learning strategy of your own to improve learning by leveraging your knowledge of different types of biases and the science of learning.

Assignment outline

Part A: Learning Technique 1 (Approx. 200 words)
Summarize the selected technique in your own words. Provide an example of how the technique might be applied in your current courses, making sure to consider the types of tasks or content the technique is suitable for.
Identify the role of at least one type of bias or heuristic from the list below that has a direct impact on the selected technique’s effectiveness. Describe how these might contribute to the effectiveness of the technique, as well as any potential undesirable side-effects of biases. Use the example you generated above to illustrate the impacts of the bias.
Part B: Learning Technique 2 (Approx. 200 words)
biases and heuristics to choose from:
confirmation bias
emotional bias
anchoring heuristic
representativeness heuristic
Summarize the selected technique in your own words. Provide an example of how the technique might be applied in your current courses, making sure to consider the types of learners and tasks the technique is suitable for.
Identify the role of at least one type of bias or heuristic that has a direct impact on the selected technique’s effectiveness. Describe how these might contribute to the effectiveness of the technique, as well as any potential undesirable side-effects of biases. Use the example you generated above to illustrate the impacts of the bias.
Part C: Design a Learning App (Approx. 250 words)
Design a (hypothetical) mobile app that will aid college students in learning course material. The app must make use of at least one learning technique. Make sure to do the following:
Describe how the app will work.
Explain how the app will make use of a learning technique.
Explain how the app takes advantage of and/or limits/avoids/mitigates specific biases to help more effective learning
English is not my first language so please use simple language and don’t over explain anything. I have bought from this website before and the teacher said it was good but it is too detailed. So keep everything simple and easy. Use the outline as a checklist and don’t forget that I will be graded more on the biases rather than the learning technique.
