counterterrorism

 Prompt: For this short paper, you will explore alternative approaches to counterterrorism. Over the years, counterterrorism experts have categorized counterterrorism approaches in five different categories. These categories include coercive, proactive, persuasive, defensive, and long term. For many years, the American strategy has been primarily coercive in nature. However, it is important to understand that a certain degree of overlap exists (by design) among these approaches, and that a more effective and comprehensive strategy would encompass approaches from many if not all of the five categories. For this assignment, you will choose two approaches from categories other than coercive. Specifically, you will address the following critical elements: 

How can these two approaches be used to complement the United States current use of the coercive approach? When should these approaches be used and how? 

What are the benefits of these approaches, and how do these benefits counterbalance the negatives from the coercive approach? There are no right or wrong answers. The goal of this assignment is to make a valid argument and support it with scholarly facts and resources. You must consider how implementing numerous complementary approaches to counterterrorism can ultimately lead to a more comprehensive strategy.

 Rubric Guidelines for Submission: Your paper should be a 3page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and at least two sources cited in APA format.

Project: Evaluate the Capital Investment

Shoals Corporation puts significant emphasis on cash flow when planning capital investments. The company chose its discount rate of 8 percent based on the rate of return it must pay its owners and creditors. Using that rate, Shoals Corporation then uses different methods to determine the most appropriate capital outlays.

This year, Shoals Corporation is considering buying five new backhoes to replace the backhoes it now owns. The new backhoes are faster, cost less to run, provide for more accurate trench digging, have comfort features for the operators, and have 1-year maintenance agreements to go with them. The old backhoes are working just fine, but they do require considerable maintenance. The backhoe operators are very familiar with the old backhoes and would need to learn some new skills to use the new backhoes.

The following information is available to use in deciding whether to purchase the new backhoes:

Instructions

To complete this assignment, write a 35 page paper in which you address the following items:

  1. Evaluate, discuss, and compare whether to purchase the new equipment or overhaul the old equipment. (Hint: For the old machine, the initial investment is the cost of the overhaul. For the new machine, subtract the salvage value of the old machine to determine the initial cost of the investment.)
    • Using Excel, calculate the net present value of the old backhoes and the new backhoes.
    • Discuss the net present value of each, including what the calculations reveal about whether the company should purchase the new backhoes or continue using the old backhoes.
    • Using Excel, calculate the payback period for keeping the old backhoes and purchasing the new backhoes. (Hint: For the old machines, evaluate the payback of an overhaul.)
    • Discuss the payback method and what the payback periods of the old backhoes and new backhoes reveal about whether the company should purchase new backhoes or continue using the old backhoes. Calculate the profitability index for keeping the old backhoes and purchasing new backhoes.
    • Discuss the profitability index of each, including what the calculations reveal about whether the company should purchase the new backhoes or continue using the old backhoes.

2. Identify and discuss any intangible benefits that might influence this decision.  

3. Answer the following: Should the company purchase the new backhoes or continue using the old backhoes? Explain your decision.

Question 1

Read chapter 10. Based on case 10-1 on page 343 as reproduced below, answer the following question.

THE QUIET MEETING:

Debbie Ronson, sales supervisor, was just opening a meeting she had called for members of her department. Debbie did most of the talking for the first five minutes, recounting her groups performance over the past week. Then she asked, Are there any questions? No one responded. Debbie then changed subjects. As you know, in two weeks well be going to a new format for scheduling our calls. This was outlined in the memo from the vice president, copies of which I sent to each of you. This is going to alter your calling schedules and significantly change the way weve been doing things. I have some ideas on how we can best work into this new system. But before getting into that, Id like to see if anyone here has any ideas … [pause]. Anyone care to contribute anything? No one in the group responded. Debbie continued, Well, heres what I think we should do. … She then spent eight minutes outlining her plan. After the meeting was over, Debbie discussed it with one of her fellow supervisors. I dont know what it is, she said, but I can never get my people to say much at meetings. I try to give them a chance, but I always end up doing most of the talking. It seems theyre either shy or disinterested, but I really dont know if thats the reason or not. I just wish theyd contribute their ideas.

1. What might be some reasons for participants not saying much at Debbies meetings?

Question 2

2 (a) What are some of the primary reasons people resist change?

2 (b) What are some of the ways a team leader can ensure that change is accepted or at least not resisted?

Nurses are vital when it comes to healthcare policy. We are to advocate for our patients and our profession daily. Over the years many investigations have been pursued over the years, and technology has evolved (Kostas-Polston, Thanavaro, Arvidson, Taub, 2015). For example, those with a graduate-level education, such as advanced practice nurses, need policy competence as it helps with techniques and standpoints in dealing with legislative constitutions (Kostas-Polston, Thanavaro, Arvidson, Taub, 2015). 

For this module, a review of several websites from Patton, Zalon, & Ludwick (2018) were visited and reviewed. One of the websites that were easy to navigate was the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s Washington Weekly. I like organizing the website, and it had links to specific topics. When the site was opened, there was a link about policy and advocacy, and it brought me to agendas, how to take action, and Washington weekly. The Department of Health and Human Services is an easy website to maneuver. It is organized, has fewer words, and is less chaotic. I like how they have there about the part where I could read what they are and who they are, what programs and services they do, grants and contracts, and laws and regulations. The National Institutes of Health is another website that I found easy to navigate. I like that it is easy to organize and includes research and knowledge about funding these researches. Finally, I found the area where social media is accessible because, reality-wise, we live in a world of social media. Following those will give us notifications of whatever new research or grants they are conducting and having. 

The site where I have gained more knowledge about policy issues would be the American Association of Colleges of Nursing. It is directly on their website. So, therefore, it was easy to follow through. The federal policy link, and most significantly, how to take action in participating in policy, is such a great guide/tool (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, n.d.). Honestly, we have not been heavily involved in these things; we don’t know how to do it ( I also like that they have a dean, and faculty resources are critical in academia so that students can start being involved in policy and learn how to take action (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, n.d.). The Kaiser Family Family Foundation is another website where I have learned so much. Their link to global health policy. They also have Racial Equity and Health Policy which is vital in our country as minorities are growing, and we need to address their concerns and be culturally competent (Kaiser Family Family Foundation, n.d.).

Assignment: Improve Practice Using Evidence

  

When you hear the word evidence in evidence-based practice, you may think of hours in a library. But social workers seek evidence through many different sources, including supervisors, colleagues, trainings, conferences, scholarly publications, and professional journals.

At the same time, just because research is published does not mean it is without limitations. Social workers strive to be critical consumers of research related to practice. Even if you do not wish to conduct research, it is important to understand the language of research to determine whether or not the findings could be applied to the client population with whom you work. You also want to be able to evaluate your client outcomes to determine if the intervention you implemented was effective.

For this Assignment, you define evidence-based practice and the role of research evidence to improve practice in social work.
