1.What is a high WACC?

What is considered to be a high WACC and why?

1.Conscription, better known as the draft


Conscription, better known as the draft, was re-established in 1948 and required the registration of every eligible young man who was 18 and over. The draft continued through war and peacetime up until its end with the Vietnam War when military service reverted to an all-volunteer.  Please respond to your choices from the questions below using at least 250 words.

  1. Were the United States to engage in a new military offense and the President re-instates the draft and your number is called, will you go to war? Would you volunteer for military service? How might serving in a war impact you or your family? Does considering the possibility of mandatory war service affect how you view war? If so, how?
  2. Is serving in a military where you may be asked to fight in a war a moral or ethical obligation? When is it and when is it not? Does tradition have a role in military service and war? What is that role? Does myth?
  3. What about veteran’s returning from war? How is the return and re-integration into society handled? How does their service and return potentially positively or negatively affect the rest of society?


1. Neuman Systems Model.

Neuman Systems Models is a flexible and adaptive model which can be applied to various aspects of nursing disciplines. Today, the model is used globally as a nursing conceptual model to guide curriculum development, research studies, and clinical practice in the full array of health-care disciplines.

Define a nursing practice area where you could apply Neuman Systems Model. What patient population would you target? How would you use this model to guide best practices? How would nursing outcomes be determined? Use at least one current research article related to your practice example.

1. Write a project about water efficiency fixtures

1. Write a project about water efficiency fixtures (sustainable)

2. Collect information from books, from Internet

· Details

· Main features

· Operation

· Construction Characteristics

· Specification

· Dimensions

· Cost

· Market availability

· Others

3. Add photos or drawings (from the Internet/books), highlight an element that interested you in particular

4. The project must contain 3 written pages and at least 5 pages of information (data, schedule, specs, etc.)

5. No plagiarism on written pages and cite any material you bring in

1. Qualitative research designs

During Weeks 3 and 4, you learned about various qualitative research designs. This week, you will build on this knowledge. Select two of the five research designs. Define and explain the features of each design using the resources provided and three other quality resources. Next, develop data collection processes for each of the selected designs that include discussions of sample size, sampling technique, data collection materials, and instrumentation. You can include diagrams if you would like.

You are already familiar with the types of instruments used in quantitative data collection, but these are distinctly different from what is useful in qualitative studies. Qualitative instruments must be structured so that you are collecting deep and broad data to fully understand the research question. In most cases, you must design an instrument to extract specific experiential information from your participants. Data collection can occur through face-to-face interviews, focus groups, or observation; there are also other ways to select qualitative data.

When constructing your data collection plan, it must be clear and it must contain all the steps that you will take when collecting information from your participants. You will have to include any secondary data that you will collect. Secondary data can include documents or other evidence that can contribute to understanding the central phenomenon under study. How will you ensure a data saturation? Remember, practices like member checking, follow-up interviews, or transcript review are used by qualitative researchers to ensure data saturation.

Ultimately when writing this section of your study, it must be logical, repeatable, and reproducible. Every research decision must be based on accepted research practices; remember to include sources in your research plan to demonstrate the depth of your knowledge and the support of the academic community.

Length: 4, not including cover and references pages.

Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Organization’s directional strategies

Organization’s directional strategies

In your previous assignments, you examined how today’s health care organizations prepare themselves for the present and the future through strategic management. Specifically, you analyzed how a health care organization’s external and internal environments affect its operations. You also performed a TOWS analysis to help a health care organization identify strategic objectives to drive and improve all aspects of the company.

The next step is to consider the directional pathways health care organizations take to achieve their strategic objectives. Creating a strategic vision for a health care organization involves developing or revising the organization’s mission, vision, and value statements. Here is a summary of these three directional strategies:

  • A mission statement captures the organization’s distinctive purpose or reason for being.
  • A vision statement creates a mental picture of what leaders want the organization to achieve when accomplishing its purpose or mission.
  • Value statements clarify how the organization will conduct its activities to achieve its mission and vision. They frequently reflect common morality and emphasize respect, integrity, trust, caring, and the pursuit of excellence.

In a first-in-class health care organization, these three directional strategies align with the company’s overarching goals. Once strategic leaders are confident the mission, vision, and values are well formulated, understood, and communicated, they then focus on the activities that will make the most progress toward accomplishing the organization’s mission and move it toward realizing its vision. These activities are called strategic goals.

This assignment provides an opportunity for you to create a directional strategies report. In this report, you will analyze the alignment of your health care organization’s current directional strategies (mission, vision, and value statements) with its strategic goals. You will make recommendations for improvement if you identify gaps between where your health care organization currently is and where it wants to go.

By successfully completing this assignment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assignment criteria:

  • Competency 1: Analyze organizational structure, design, culture, and climate in relation to environmental forces.
    • Analyze the effectiveness of a health care organization’s directional strategies.
    • Identify gaps between effective directional strategies and an organization’s existing directional strategies.
  • Competency 3: Recommend an organizational structure and design to optimize a strategic plan.
    • Analyze the alignment between an organization’s directional strategies and its strategic goals.
    • Propose changes to an organization’s directional strategies that improve alignment between its organizational structure and its strategic goals.
  • Competency 4: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and consistent with expectations for professionals in health care administration.
    • Write a clear, concise, well-organized, and professional directional strategies report that includes conclusions that are supported by relevant evidence.
    • Follow APA formatting and style guidelines for citations and references.


Your boss is pleased with the thorough and impressive work you have done to date. However, she notes that the TOWS matrix findings do not align with the organization’s directional strategies. The organization’s structure needs to more closely align with its strategic goals, so that the organization can be more efficient, competitive, and profitable. She asks for your help once again.

Her next task for you is to examine the organization’s current mission, vision, and value statements and compare them to the TOWS matrix. She requests that you recommend revisions to the organization’s mission, vision, and value statements so that they more closely align with the organization’s strategic priorities.

Knowing your boss, you understand that she wants your directional strategies report to be insightful, substantive, and brief—all at the same time. You also know that your boss is a visual person. It will serve you well to include appropriate images and diagrams, such as your TOWS matrix, in your report to highlight key information.


Write a directional strategies report that examines the alignment of a health care organization’s current directional strategies with its strategic goals.

Report Requirements

The requirements, outlined below, correspond to the grading criteria in the Directional Strategies Report Scoring Guide, so be sure to address each point. Read the performance-level descriptions for each criterion to see how your work will be assessed.

  • Analyze the effectiveness of the organization’s directional strategies.
    • Use the Mission, Vision, and Values Analysis Questions document, linked in the resources, to determine how effectively the existing directional strategies currently fulfill the requirements of effective directional strategies.
  • Identify gaps between effective directional strategies and the organization’s existing directional strategies.
  • Analyze the alignment between the organization’s directional strategies and its strategic goals.
    • Examine the strategic fit.
      • How well does the directional strategy fit the environment?
      • How appropriate is the organization’s direction, given the environmental analysis you completed in Unit 3?
      • Which strategic goals make the most sense at this time? Growth? Maintaining the status quo? Or does contraction make the most sense right now?
  • Propose changes to the organization’s directional strategies that improve alignment between the organization’s structure and its strategic goals.
    • Recommend changes you think the organization needs to make to establish a foundation necessary for the organization’s current structure and strategies.
    • Be sure to support your recommendations with references to current, scholarly, and authoritative sources.
  • Write a clear, concise, well-organized, and professional directional strategies report that includes conclusions that are supported by relevant evidence.
  • Follow APA formatting and style guidelines for citations and references.
Document Format and Length

Prepare your report using a familiar and appropriate document format used by health care organizations, such as business report or white paper.

Your report should be 4–6 pages in length (double-spaced).

Supporting Evidence

Health care is an evidence-based field. Consequently, readers of your report will want to know the sources of your information, so be sure to include applicable, APA-formatted source citations and references.

Submission Requirements

Proofread your document, before you submit it, to minimize errors that could distract readers and make it more difficult for them to focus on the substance of your report.

Portfolio Prompt: You may choose to save your directional strategies report to your ePortfolio.

1. Watergate scandal

Watergate scandal

A June 1972 break-in to the Democratic National Committee headquarters led to an
investigation that revealed multiple abuses of power by the Nixon administration. Watch
the video below to learn more about the Watergate scandal. You can also refer to the
“Watergate” subsection in Chapter 26 The Conservative Turn. watch this video to do it

1. Given what you know about other impeachment proceedings from the class
(Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton, Donald Tump (1 & 2)), where does this fall
historically? Was this something that one should have been impeached, why
or why not?
2. In times of war, how much power does the president have domestically? Was
impetus for the Watergate Scandal domestic or foreign policy? What did
Nixon stand to gain from it?
3. Nixon ultimately stepped down before he could have been removed from
office. Was this something that should have happened? Would it have been a
good or bad thing for the president of the United States to stand trial for
crimes? Why or why not?

Voting restrictions today

Voting restrictions today

2020 is both an election year and the 150th anniversary of the passage of
the 15th Amendment, making it an important time to consider the history of
voting rights in the United States. The struggle for the ballot is emblematic
of the struggle to make real the democratic promises of this country’s
founding narrative. As we have seen historically, the right to vote has
always been incomplete, contested, and compromised by the racism,
sexism, classism, and xenophobia of policymakers and the interests they
act to protect. Voting rights have expanded in the last 400 years, but they
have also been taken away, requiring activists to rise up, again and again,
to restore the achievements of prior generations. The fight for the ballot is
ongoing. Recent elections have brought forth the old problem of voter
suppression in a new guise — voter ID laws, voter roll purges, polling
places shuttered. This assignment is broken into several sections related to
the way in which people take part in the electoral system and the struggles
that have existed at local and national levels.
Source Materials:
● Suppressed: The Fight to Vote documentary (35m), involving the 2018
Georgia gubernatorial election

Part A. In a paragraph or so each, answer the questions below. Be
descriptive in your discussion of your answer and make sure to back
it up with info from the materials or from the interactive websites.
1. Look at the US Government Voter Information Website
Links to an external site.
. What are voting restrictions that exist today in your state? Make a short
list below. Out of that list, what do you think is stepping over the line/not
harsh enough/should be changed?
2. Pay particular attention to the sections “Who Can’t Vote”.
Links to an external site.
What is the description of voting rights for those currently incarcerated or
former incarcerated persons in your state? What is you opinion on this
aspect of the discussion of voter rights?
3. Some discussion of voting laws focus on who people are, their national
origin, education, etc. What of the following descriptors do you accept as
limits or expansions on voting? What is your critique of these limitations?
Pick 3 of the 10 issues below that you find most reasonable to the creation
of an informed electorate. Write a few sentences on each and why you
picked these as either necessary, or the lesser evil in this case.
● Lower the voting age
● Require completion of a certain year/level of schooling
● Know something about the Constitution
● Know something about the candidates/issues being voted on
● Know how to read
● Not be a felon
● Expand voting rights to Green Card holders
● Be able to pay a poll tax to vote
● Pass a mental competency test
● Ownership of land or $20,000 in assets
How do these limitations above reflect historical limitations based on voting
that you are aware of?
Part B.
4. Create a 1-page write-up/300 words, (double-spaced, Times New
Roman 12pt font) of your overall findings in this research.
Watch the short documentary Suppressed: The Fight to Vote (35m). This is
about the governor’s election in Georgia in 2018 and many of the ways
people were left out of the voting process. It also discusses issues
nationwide that disproportionately affect lower economic areas and people
of color in the United States.
Answer these questions in your write up: What historical parallels do
you see between the fight to gain the right to vote throughout the time
period of our class and the issues going on in Georgia in 2018? How do
these relate to the 15th Amendment and what suggestions do you have to
rectify this issue of contentious access to voting?
