Article 1 was a research on workplace bullying that focused on individuals and situation predictors that engaged in bullying others. The purpose of the research was to examine the reason that perpetrators in the workplace bully their co-workers. Article 2 focused on trait anger and anxiety that may relate to individuals being labeled as victims of workplace bullying or what is the relationship between the acts of bullying. The purpose behind this study was to determine what influences are in place that causes a victim in the workplace to be bullied. Article 3 related to how employees are coping to workplace bulling and how the effects of bullying are affecting their job performance. The main purpose with this study was to determine the role of human resource management in coping with bullying in the workplace.

...Final Paper Courtney George ISCOM/476 April 1, 2013 Debra Foland Final Paper The area that I believe that is important to any supply chain that will provide success in customer satisfaction is measuring performance. Setting up the appropriate metrics to measure the effectiveness of the supply chain will highlight areas needing improvement to meet the customers’ requirements. Metrics in the supply chain areas will certify an effective and efficient supply chain and room for improvements. With the market changing and competition increasing at such a fast pace it is imperative to have metrics set up to gain competitive advantage. Setting up appropriate metrics that align with the strategic plan will verify effectiveness of the supply chain or validate that improvements need to be made. These metrics can measure how the supply chain is functioning in different areas to make sure that it is functioning correctly and meeting demands. The processes in the supply chain must be mapped to the main metrics to control performance. There must a process that is in place to review the actual supply chain performance and redefine the metrics with changing business. A combined single view of supply chain performance across functions and chain of command is crucial to help management quickly conclude the causes of adversities. Measuring significance of the supply chain to profitability is the core drive why managers use metrics for supply chain performance. There is more to......

...Comparison Matrix Marquita S. Henderson Grand Canyon University: PSY-801 July 10, 2013 Comparison Matrix A Comparison Matrix is a grid created specifically to display information in a structural format. In week two of the PSY-801 course, students were presented with the task of completing a comparison matrix, consisting of empirical articles and details of their content. The intent of this particular document is to revisit the matrix from week two and compare the provided findings on a deeper level. The following qualitative assessment will serve as a tool of preparation for the doctoral program. The purpose of developing and reviewing a comparison matrix is to ultimately compare, contrast, and synthesize researchers’ discoveries and conclusions in their works. The comparison matrix in reference, focuses on different facets of bullying in professional environments. The first article, titled, “Individual and situational predictors of workplace bullying: why do perpetrators engage in the bullying of others?” is an examination of the explanation(s) that aggressors tend to intimidate their co-workers. The second article, “Does trait anger, trait anxiety or organizational position moderate the relationship between exposure to negative acts and self-labelling as a victim of workplace bullying?” highlights traits relative to whether or not an individual is indeed a victim of bullying and the correlation between bullying actions. The emphasis is on influences and......

...Final Project: The Role and Life of a Mental Health Counselor Books, television, and movies are full of stories revealing the day-to-day realities of various professions. These stories provide a behind-the-scenes look at the often unknown stress, joy, and effort involved in being a doctor, law enforcement agent, or even a chef. What do you think the day-to-day life of a mental health counselor is like? What constitutes a typical day for a mental health counselor, or is there no such thing? For the Final Project in this course, you uncover the hidden realities of the daily life of a mental health counselor. The Final Project requires you to interview (in person) a licensed mental health counselor who works with a population in a setting that interests you. For example, if you are interested in working as an in-home counselor with children diagnosed with mood disorders, interview someone who does this work. You then apply the information from this course, as well as in an interview you conduct, to your understanding of what it means to be a mental health counselor. *Please note that it is NOT acceptable to interview a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, addictions specialist, school counselor, or other mental health provider for this assignment. Although the Final Project includes interview material, this is not the only component of this assignment. Please make sure to review the full project description below.

...Shuo Sun – Anthro R5B - Final Paper Outline Abstract: In “The art of not being governed”, James Scott uses the example of the hill people living in the mountain region of Zomia and argued that instead of being primitive form of living, barbarians, or human beings leftover from pre-state era, these hill people deliberately move to inaccessible region to avoid state control. Scott states that the inaccessibility of the hills make them natural escape routes that can be used to avoid the sovereignty of state government. Scott briefly talks about the examples of how the defeated Kuomintang in the 1950s and the remnants from Taiping Rebellion both escaped to the mountains, but fails to talk about what happen to these people after that. In this paper, I would like to work on this missing information and find data to evaluate whether these people converted themselves to hill people permanently or did they use the resources in the hills to fight back against the state. The aim of this paper is to find out whether the primary or secondary sources concur with Scott’s arguments and discuss about the mechanism of using hills as escape routes in more details. Outline: 1. Introduction: The section introduces Scott and his book, “The art of not being governed” and points the reader to the specify topic that I will be focusing on in this paper. There will be a few sentences talking about the rationale and importance of this paper. (0.5 page) 2. Theoretical background: This......

...Final paper The ABC Company is a manufacturing firm that specializes in making cedar roofing and siding shingles, with recent sales at $1.2 million, the company wants to reach the $3 million mark over the next 3 years. As a newly hired Corporate Controller for this company, I have been assigned the task of developing and overlooking a new plan made by the CEO that will use some of the shingle scrap materials to build cedar houses. The newly develop plan will certainly bring new challenges for the company on the form of increased cost and labor; However it will also provide additional revenue and gross profit to help reach the growth targets. On this paper I would go over the details of the report made for the CEO that includes information on the overall risk profile based on actual market conditions, a current company cash flow, the product cost and any potential investments that might accelerate profits. The Risk profile for this company includes several different factors that are mostly due to current market conditions, and the level of risk the company will face by adding extra inventory and expenses. Unfortunately risk is a reality of doing business, whether the company is large or small, public or private, risk will always be present since nothing on the business world warrants a guarantee. Some of the key risk points are: Inventory represents a big portion of the cash flow, therefore having extra inventory on hand will have an impact on the company's future cash...

...Comparison Matrix Paper James Trent Grand Canyon University RES-811 October 8, 2014 Research Questions Customer service satisfaction and leadership, what do they have in common? Can you have poor leadership and great customer service satisfaction? Can you have great leadership and poor customer service satisfaction? Are there commonalities in the two? Are there any major differences in the two? Are there metrics that can be used to improve poor customer service? Is it possible to have one without the other? Every business in today’s society depends on customer service. For many customers it’s the most important thing to determine if there will be repeat business or not. The three studies that I’ve been asked to compare and contrast touches on the questions mentioned and provides strong arguments for both scenarios. One article states the following: “Customer satisfaction depends, to a large extent on the attitude of customer contact personnel (Emery. Pg. 77, 2007). Another article states that “Delivering quality customer service has emerged as a strategic imperative, one that is increasingly tied to a firm’s information technology resources and capabilities (Ray. Pg. 625, 2005). When looking over the three articles, they approach questions in a different way. Instead of asking direct questions in the study, each article takes the same approach and proposes several hypotheses. After the hypotheses is ...

...instructor, choose a topic for your final 7-10 page research paper that addresses a topic other than that of your Oral Presentation. While your paper may be on any topic related to course materials; it must synthesize material addressed throughout the semester. For example, if you decide to write about visual culture of hip hop, you should probably refer to Tricia Rose's arguments about "preferred transcripts" suggested by music videos and Todd Boyd's conception of "hyperreal" cinematic imagery. FINAL PAPER INSTRUCTIONS: Your paper should also incorporate research that extends beyond the boundaries of materials on our syllabus. You should also be sure to construct an argument and offer a critique of assumptions surrounding your argument. The most successful papers will allow the "messiness" of researching popular culture to foreground contradictions implicit in your arguments. For example, if you want to argue that misogyny is less of a concern in 2006 than it was in 1995 because many of the gangsta rap groups responsible for "bitch-ho" rhetoric have disbanded, you would probably want to underscore the pervasive lack of feminist female representation in any hip hop idiom in 2002. In other words, less gangsta rap has not meant more positive heterosocial conditions for the production of hip hop. This is a research paper, and it will be graded according to standards of college-level humanities writing. Your paper must be typewritten, double-spaced,...

This research will explore the effects of stress management, feeling of isolation, and networking with in the doctoral experience. Doctoral students may perform at higher rates when they participate and socialize in positive academic environments The intent of this research the role of a doctoral student seems to have been studied from the inception of time. Countless scholars have attempted to classify and identify the parts in which a doctoral scholar, and where they fit within society as well as in the realm of academia. They have also studied how social or non-social activities would have on influencing the doctoral scholars on their journey through academia. The three articles that were used further to enlighten the readers about the role and identity of doctoral did an excellent job in providing ample evidence. All three articles produced solid research questions, excellent literature reviews, substantial sample populations, and comparison of limitations, comparison of results, and definitive recommendations as well as future studies.

...Applying the Sociological Perspectives Amy Johnson SOC/100 May 9th, 2016 Emily Frydrych Applying the Sociological Perspectives For my paper on applying the sociological perspectives, I chose to analyze and talk about employer/employee relations. I chose this topic because I feel that everyone can relate to this because I believe that we all have had at least one job in our lifetime. For me, I feel that this is going to be one that I can relate to and I will be able to think of my own personal experiences when it comes to using all three perspectives when analyzing employer/ relations. Functionalism is the way that each part of society functions to contribute as a whole. I feel that in a job situation, if we all contribute to a task at hand, then will be successful at doing our job. Even if our job does not require us to work as a team, if we all pitch in and do our part, our employer will be successful. Herbert Spence (Spencer, 1898) stated that “just as the various organs of the body work together to keep the body functioning, the various parts of society work together to keep society functioning.” (Ch. 1, p.15) I really like and agree with what he is saying here because at our job with our employer, we need to work together so that we are successful. Conflict is when members of society have social differences. I think that it is ok to have some conflict at work, but not to the point where the employer/employee feels that they have or that they are in a hostile...
