Individual editorial project

Individual Editorial Project
Word count: 1,250 words

The purpose of this assignment is for students to demonstrate their understanding of an editor’s role in the production of texts, and to formulate a meaningful evaluation or piece of advice about the creation of a text.

Task description:

Students will write an editorial analysis of a professional or public document or text of their choice. It should be a text that is publicly availableor that has had identifying details removed if semi-public or organisational.

Using what you have learned thus far about the editorial process through class discussions and readings, you should comment on the features of your chosen text. This could include the rhetorical strategies used, what you have discovered about the editorial process that produced it, elements of invention, arrangement or style (selection and shaping), target audience and intended effects, the actual (or potential) effects, its formatting, design or delivery.

After analysing some of these features, you should indicate whether you feel the editor’s choices were effective, and if not, offer suggested changes to the document in question.

Your analysis will need to show:

knowledge of the editing process and/or rhetorical appeals, devices, etc.
a considered attempt to think critically about audience and how to determine whether a text meets the expectations of an audience
understanding of how texts areor could beedited for a particular meaning or effect
application/understanding of readings to date in support of your analysis
Your evaluation and/or editorial advice will need to show:

understanding of the editorial role in the text production process, and what sorts of interventions or changes editors should be responsible for
a considered attempt to address a context or rhetorical situation for the text
the use of persuasive strategies to convince the reader of the need or desirability of changes, while maintaining constructive editorial relationships
Formatting/referencing style: Any academic or professional format and style suitable to the field chosen. Please ensure that all relevant information is included, and that the style is consistent throughout.

Law

In what circumstances would Quarantine against the spread of disease constitute breach of Human Rights?

What is the United Nations views and advice on this? Views of the International/European Court of Justice/Human Rights?

Summary of 8 to 10 most notable and representative cases of quarantine exercise (arising for the fear of the spread of disease) by governments in the world which were challenged in international courts or courts in those countries for breach of human rights.

Conclusion: where to draw the line between reasonable, necessary and legal quarantine And excessive, arbitrary or illegal restriction of human movement and hence breach of human right?

Any topic (writer’s choice)

Write a well-constructed essay of at least 1 double-spaced pages in 12 point Times New Roman font, using appropriate vocabulary (and defining each term), comparing and contrasting the two works of art.  Consider the subject, style, function, and historical context in your answer.
Consulting any outside source (such as the textbook or Smarthistory.org) requires a citation (a MLA parenthetical reference or a footnote) AND a separate  bibliography page with all sources listed.

Write a [paragraph response] that explains how Krimsky continues to structure his essay to persuade readers of the vital role of free media within a democracy.

go to page 197, where you will take another look at Krimsky’s article “The Role of the Media in a Democracy.” After you review the article, skip down to page 203. You will see a section titled “Explain How an Argument Persuades.” I have pasted this section below, with some edits and additions I’ve included to hopefully assist you. Read all of what follows.

“Krimsky begins his essay by defining terminology and revisiting some historical and key ideas about the founding of the U.S. government. Write a [paragraph response] that explains how Krimsky continues to structure his essay to persuade readers of the vital role of free media within a democracy. How effective is this structure in conveying Krimskys ideas in a convincing way? Be sure to:

1. Use diction and precise language that maintain an objective tone as you describe Krimskys structure. (Integrate Unit 3 vocabulary or any other vocabulary word from a previous list.)

2. Employ logical organization as you build an explanation of how Krimskys ideas progress. (Think about introducing what you think Krimsky’s purpose is for writing the article, and why writing the article is important to democracy. Then move to presenting evidence to support these points. End your response by reinforcing how the structure helps Krimsky convey ideas and achieve his purpose.)

3. Develop your explanation by citing significant and relevant quotations, making sure not to introduce errors of fact or understanding.

REQUIREMENTS:

Your response must include:
– Introduction (at least one sentence, and can be the same as your Thesis Statement)
– Thesis Statement
– At least ONE body paragraph that includes: specific EVIDENCE (TWO quotations) and commentary that EXPLAINS how the evidence proves how effective Krimsky’s structure is in conveying ideas in a convincing way (AT LEAST TWO SENTENCES OF COMMENTARY PER QUOTATION)
– At least ONE vocabulary word from the Unit 3 List (bold the word/s in the document)

leader paper

Your individual term project consists of an analysis of a written, published biography of a leader. The leaders biography should be someone you are interested in and/or someone you want to learn more about. You may select the leader from the realm of business, but you can select the leader from any field (politics, sports, history, entertainment, etc.) any industry, any time period. The book you choose can be either an autobiography written by the person on his/her life, or it may be a biography written by someone else. You have the first week of the term to select and get my approval for your chosen leader. Submit, in hard copy) the name of the subject and the book you selected during the second class session.

You will write a 12-15 page (double-spaced) paper outlining your chosen leader. This is NOT  a book report of this leader but an assessment of the key factors and characteristics that defined this person as a leader, e.g., what path did this person follow, what is his/her vision, what leadership style did they employ, who were their role models, how did they make decisions, what was the situational context, etc.

Questions about your leader: In developing your paper and responding to the leadership questions, it is recommended that you research beyond your chosen biography through articles and texts related to your leader, his or her industry, and leadership attributes that they represent and exemplify. In addition, it is recommended that, in developing your final paper, you incorporate the readings, topics, and issues learned throughout the class related to leadership theory and the leadership process.

Specifically in your paper you will discuss:

    Path followed to leadership
    Leaders vision and how and who helped develop this vision
    Leadership style
    Role models who influenced his/her style
    Price paid and successors

20th Century Architecture – Japans Westernization of architectural styles

Research Question: Has war and politics played a strong influence on Japans Westernization of architectural styles and housing society over the 19th and 20th centuries and how?

Thesis Statement: Politics and war have had a significant impact on the Japans westernization of architectural styles and housing over the 19th century.

Focus on the Meiji, Taisho, and early to late Showa periods

Please read the attached research paper guidelines. This focuses on art and architecture.

Operating Systems class: A program to compare the performance of the Round Robin, non-preemptive Shortest Job First, and SRTF scheduling algorithms

Objectives:

Write a program to compare the performance of the Round Robin, non-preemptive Shortest Job First, and SRTF scheduling algorithms.

Details:

Input: A file of processes and related CPU burst times and arrival times.  There will be no header in the file and each line will be of the form, “<processID>  <burst time>  <arrival time>” with spaces between each field.
Example:

A  10  0
B    1    1
C  2    3
D  1    0
E    5    1

You should read the data into a data structure.  Then you will simulate the behavior of the 3 scheduling algorithms on the data, one at a time.  For each algorithm, your program will need to print out a sort of vertical Gantt chart followed by some summary statistics.

Gantt chart:
First print the name of the scheduling algorithm, then each time a process is scheduled, print out time of the scheduling decision, the processID, and the reason for the context switch.  When the last process completes, print the end time, and “Complete”.  The 3 possible reasons for a context switch are:

Process terminated

Quantum expired

Process preempted by process with shorter burst time

Example:

SJF Scheduling
0 D      Process terminated
1 B      Process terminated
2 E      Process terminated
7 C      Process terminated
9 A      Process terminated
19 Complete

Summary statistics:  Then print out the turnaround time and waiting time for each process and the average turnaround time and waiting time.
Example:

Process ID

Turnaround Time

Waiting Time

A

19

9

B

1

0

C

6

4

D

1

0

E

6

1

Average

33/5 = 6.6

14/5 = 2.8

Then, repeat for the other 2 scheduling algorithms.

If 2 processes have the same burst length (in SJF) or arrive at the same time (in RR), handle them in alphabetical order.

If a process A is preempted at the same time a new process B arrives, put process A in the queue before B (essentially giving running processes a bit higher priority than new processes.)
You might use an ordered queue to handle prioritization in SJF and SRTF.
Use a quantum of 3 for the Round-Robin scheduler.
Assume no preemption in the shortest-job first scheduler.  Of course, there is preemption in the RR and SRTF schedulers.

How to get started:

Note that this program is essentially a simulation and hence is supposed to simulate the behavior of a real system implementing the scheduling algorithms on a set of processes.  As a result, I would suggest implementing versions of the real data structures that an OS would use here, namely a job queue (a queue of all processes in the system) and a ready queue (the set of jobs ready to run.)  You could then update the ready queue every (simulated) second by moving any jobs which have arrived from the job queue to the ready queue.  Then your scheduling algorithm would examine the ready queue to choose the next process to run.  You might maintain a process burst time or remaining burst time as part of the process record in the event queue as well so that your scheduler has all the information it needs right there.

Remember to do one piece at a time and make sure that you always have something to turn in before moving on to the next piece.  Note that this would include the corresponding output.

How can you check if your output is correct?  (Because you would want to check, right?)  You can easily work out the scheduling order by hand.

Notes:

The inputfile is posted separately.  While you will only hand in output for one input file, your program must work for any input file (specifying no more than 8 processes.)

It’s always a good idea to use a makefile.  You put all your file dependencies in the file and type “make” on the command line to build the project.  Here is an example called “makefile”:
# This is a comment.  OS Program 2
# The 2nd line below must begin with a tab.
kbscheduler: kbscheduler.c
    gcc -Wall kbscheduler.c -o kbscheduler

Requirements:

You may write your program in any language you choose (I WOULD PREFER C++ and C) and it can run on any platform (Windows, Mac, Linux) you choose.

Your program must be well-commented including function headers and explanations of complex code.  Proper indentation is expected.

You must write one program which simulates all 3 scheduling algorithms, not 3 separate programs.

To submit: [THIS IS WHAT I NEED]

A printout of your commented code
A printout of your programs output including the program invocation command (ex. xxscheduler Lab3inputfileS20.)  This would be a typescript file a Linux machine, or you could write to a file.  It could be also be screenshots on a Windows machine although this is the worst option.  In this case, you must be very careful to ensure that the output is legible and shows all output and program invocation.
A paragraph in which you choose one of the three scheduling algorithms and argue why it is better than the others based on the output of your program. For instance, if you choose RR, you must argue why it is better than SJF, and then also argue why it is better than SRTF as the reasons may differ.
How to generate a typescript file:

1. Log on to you Linux account.
2. Start up the script command. “script”
3. Run your program on the input file. “xxscheduler inputfile”
4. Exit from script program. “exit”

The resulting script file is called “typescript”.
