The company started in the owner’s garage two years ago and now has 15 employees that you manage. The company started as a sole proprietorship, and the owner has never changed the entity. The owner has informed you that the company has received inquiries from several large businesses wondering if the company could create several fireworks displays on a regular basis. The owner told the inquirers that the company could fill such display orders, and a price per display was agreed upon. It was discussed that most of the cost for a fireworks display is for skilled labor, insurance, and the actual service of setting off the fireworks. No other details were discussed. The owner is anticipating that new employees will need to be hired, but he is worried that if the large orders for fireworks displays do not continue, the company will not have the funds to pay the new employees.

Deidre

Deidre is a 22-year-old African American and Latina female who was raised as an only child near New York City. At age 19, Deidre moved to Kansas to attend college. She is currently a senior majoring in sociology and works part-time to pay for school and living expenses. Deidre was referred by her medical doctor who noted that she was anxious and tense, and suggested she see a counselor. Deidre says that although she does not identify with a religion, she has “dabbled in Buddhism” as a way to relax and find comfort.

Deidre’s parents divorced when she was 9 and she lived primarily with her mom after the divorce. Deidre had a contentious relationship with her Latina mother, who was “moody” and emotionally unpredictable and tended to hoard things. Deidre reported that her mother “drove her father away” with her negative moods and that Deidre is concerned about her own moods and is worried about becoming like her mother. Deidre spent most of her childhood in her room, where she felt protected from her mother. Deidre was quiet and withdrawn during high school and had only a few close friends.

Deidre’s African American father died suddenly from a heart attack when she was 17. She described her father as being very quiet and calm. When her parents were married, Deidre remembers her father sitting in a chair reading and not reacting to her mother’s moods. When Deidre spent summers with her father, she reported feeling close to him even though they did not talk much, but she appreciated how “calm” his house was.

After her dad’s passing, Deidre started using drugs and alcohol. She stated that she preferred marijuana, and that she was afraid of meth even though many of her friends were using it. She became pregnant at 18 after a party at a friend’s house, but she didn’t know who the baby’s father was. She had an abortion, and reports that she dreams about who her child might have been and how “different—in a good way” her life might be if she had carried the child full term.

While in her first year at college, she joined an environmental group, where she met her boyfriend, Tom. Currently, Deirdre is living with Tom in a small apartment just off campus in the downtown area of Hays, Kansas. Deidre has been with Tom for nearly 4 years, and they are considering getting married. She reported feeling guilty that she has never shared with Tom that she had an abortion. She stated that Tom is very pro-life, and she is afraid he will leave her if she tells him. She expresses that she would like help sorting out her many issues and wonders if there is any hope for her to have a good life.

In this assignment, you will have the opportunity to use a software program that makes it easy to analyze data using specific tests. This assignment will give you practice with mean, median, mode, frequency, range, and standard deviation. Be sure to review the Topic Material videos before undertaking this practice.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

· For assistance with accessing SPSS, refer to the resources “How to Use SPSS From the GCU Server” and “How to Install SPSS on Your Computer.”

· Before beginning this assignment, be sure to view the tutorial videos provided as Topic Materials: (1) SPSS for Beginners 1 – Introduction; (2) SPSS for Beginners 2a: Frequency Counts; (3) SPSS for Beginners 2b: Descriptive Statistics and Z-scores; and (4) Graphing and Descriptive Stats in SPSS With Dr. Ami Gates.

· Doctoral learners are required to use APA style for their writing assignments. The APA Style Guide is located in the Student Success Center.

· You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.

Directions:

SPSS Output

Open SPSS and obtain an output (as in the tutorial videos) with the following results highlighted:

1. Determine the statistics for each gender as follows: Frequency Counts, Mean, Standard Deviation, Minimum, and Maximum.

2. Graphing and Descriptive Stats in SPSS: Create a bar graph with gender (axis X) and blood sugar (axis Y).

Data Set

Use the following data set for this assignment:

1. You have a group of patients observed with a diagnosis of Diabetes and their blood sugar levels are listed below based on gender. Men: 74, 71, 75, 248, 388, 505, 42, 21.

2. Female: 62, 68, 61, 71, 68, 80, 390, 148.

Summary

Write a 250-500 word summary of your results and how this statistical analysis may be applied to your prospectus. Provide a bar graph with gender on the x-axis and blood sugar levels on the y-axis. Add your SPSS output as an Appendix to this summary.

You are required to complete your assignment using real-world application. Real-world application requires the use of evidence-based data, contemporary theories, and concepts presented in the course. The culmination of your assignment must present a viable application in a current practice setting.

Work release programs have been implemented as an alternative to incarceration across the nation. These programs have strict requirements including that participants be non-violent offenders, have no outstanding court dates, have no outstanding warrants, complete urine screens, pay weekly program costs, and have no previous attempts to escape incarceration. Using these criteria, jail officials seek to reduce the number of inmates incarcerated for lower-level offenses, reducing costs and the exposure of these inmates to more dangerous offenders. Offenders may also participate in mental health and substance abuse treatment programs during the work release program.

Imagine that you are a victim of a property crime. The offender convicted of stealing your vehicle has been accepted into the work release program and will be leaving the local work release center (separate from the jail, but still under the direction of the corrections) to work every day. He will then be expected to return after work hours to sleep. Describe your concerns with this approach. Suppose that the offender completes his sentence and, due to the services provided, never reoffends. Address the concerns discussed by your peers. Evaluate

Clearly, diagnosis is a critical aspect of healthcare. However, the ultimate purpose of a diagnosis is the development and application of a series of treatments or protocols. Isolated recognition of a health issue does little to resolve it.

Part 2: Application
Evaluate how effective the article’s argument was using Toulmin’s model. Detail as many of the 6 components as possible:

  1. Claim: What was the article’s main point? What’s the thesis?
  2. Grounds: What kinds of evidence did the author use to support his/her argument? Provide an example.
  3. Warrants: Did the author(s) successfully connect the evidence to the main point? How so?
  4. Backing: How credible were the sources the author(s) applied? How does credulity affect your overall response?
  5. Qualifiers: Did you notice any absolutes (all, every, each) or limiters (some, several, many)? How did they add or subtract from the argument?
  6. Rebuttal: Did the author(s) present any points of opposition and counterarguments? How did it influence your reaction?

Note: If a section is missing completely from an article, spend of time discussing how its absence affects the overall success of the argument.

How will you apply a similar approach in your pro-position papers? Based on this assessment, what must you include and what can you avoid in your own argument development?

Follow-Up Post Instructions
Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. Here, we have an opportunity to compare research notes with our fellow peers.

  • Did your peers discover something you missed?
  • Do you agree with the stance in this article? If so, what other warrants or grounds might you add to validate the argument? If not, what qualifiers or rebuttals might you present to disprove the argument?

Remember, the goal here is to find multiple perspectives, but those perspectives should be both professional and respectful. Ask questions to keep the conversation going.
