Political campaign advertisements

Political campaign advertisements

Thesis statement that you are defending (be sure to refer back to your thesis at the end of your paragraph):Political campaign advertisements should be required to be truthful and accurate.Topic sentence (use exactly as it is to start your paragraph):Political candidates use the brain’s own power of forgetting to spread and reinforce false rumors about the opposition. “Even if they do not understand the neuroscience behind source amnesia, campaign strategists can exploit it to spread misinformation. They know that if their message is initially memorable, its impression will persist long after it is debunked.

effects of chronic stress

Pathophysiology Case Study

Linda is a 21 year old single mother.On the way to work she drops off her 3 years old at a community day care center and picks her up  on the way home . Because her income is low , Linda works a second job  from home in the evening and rarely goes out for social interaction . For the last several days her daughter  has been sick with influenza so Linda has stayed awake throughout the night to care for her. One morning while preparing her daughter’s breakfast , Linda realized they had run out of milk and bread again.

Linda started to cry.

Questions:

1. One of the effects of chronic stress is an impaired immune response. What are the physiological mechanisms that will make Linda particularly prone to contracting her daughter’s illness?

2. Assuming the stressors are the same, how is it that someone might react differently than Linda? From what you know  of her history , what are some factors affecting Linda’s ability to cope both physically and psychologically?

3.What are the signs and symptoms that would distinguish a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from an individual like Linda.

Fresh Dog Treats

MBA 565 Final Exam Questions

Scenario:
Fresh Dog Treats
Fresh Dog Treats is a newly developed company that is focusing on catering to the premium pet market. Specifically, the company is creating gourmet/organic grain-free fresh dog treats. While these treats are similar to some treats offered on the market currently by such companies as FreshPet, one of the biggest differences is the packaging approach. One of the limitations to FreshPet products is the product must be refrigerated in the store, which limits the number and types of retailers that will adopt the product. Most stores do not want to put a refrigeration unit in the middle of their pet food aisle.
Fresh Dog uses aseptic packaging that only requires the product to be refrigerated after opening. This will allow the product to be displayed in the normal pet aisle without the requirement of the refrigeration unit. As the company progresses forward with this product, there are several marketing issues that have not been resolved.
Your task is to assist them in this decision-making process. Please respond to the following decision points for the company:

Questions:
As a marketing consultant, you need to address the following questions for management:

a: Identify for this product a specific target market group they should focus on. In your description of the target market, you also need to address where you believe this group of individuals would most likely purchase (type of retailer) this type of dog treat. Provide detail around their demographics, geographics and psychographics.
b: After calculating the cost of goods sold, the company has determined that the cost per 8-ounce bag of treats is approximately $2.97. The company desires a 40 percent contribution margin on each package sold. They also know that most wholesalers in this industry use a 32% mark-up and many retailers maintain a 25% mark-up as well. Following this channel and based solely on the calculations, what will be the price that the normal retailer will charge for the product? Reflecting on the psychological aspects of pricing and specific pricing tactics theories, what would your final price recommendation be? Support your answer.
c: Design for the company an appropriate promotional campaign for this product based upon your described target market. Be specific in your discussion. Be sure to address the influence of the brand will have on this component of the marketing strategy. Discuss your message and the type of sales promotion and/or media you would use.
d: Discuss how the aspects of differentiation and positioning will impact the acceptance of this product by the desired target market. What must the company consider in terms of its products and the competitor products when entering the market?

e: Create a slogan for the business, less than 20 words, which captures the essence of the brand. Explain your rationale for the slogan. Then show how it should be incorporated within the brand image and integrated marketing communication plan.

Foundational Neuroscience

Psychopharmalogical Approaches to Treat Psychopathology

Discussion: Foundational Neuroscience
As a psychiatric nurse practitioner, it is essential for you to have a strong background in foundational neuroscience. In order to diagnose and treat patients, you must not only understand the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders but also how medications for these disorders impact the central nervous system. These concepts of foundational neuroscience can be challenging to understand. Therefore, this Discussion is designed to encourage you to think through these concepts, develop a rationale for your thinking, and deepen your understanding by interacting with your colleagues.
For this Discussion, review the Learning Resources and reflect on the concepts of foundational neuroscience as they might apply to your role as the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner in prescribing medications for patients.
Post a response to each of the following:
1. Explain the agonist-to-antagonist spectrum of action of psychopharmacologic agents, including how partial and inverse agonist functionality may impact the efficacy of psychopharmacologic treatments.
2. Compare and contrast the actions of g couple proteins and ion gated channels.
3. Explain how the role of epigenetics may contribute to pharmacologic action.
4. Explain how this information may impact the way you prescribe medications to patients. Include a specific example of a situation or case with a patient in which the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner must be aware of the medication’s action.
