LW discussion:

Please discuss the following case study: Globe Life Insurance Company has undertaken a new sales program that targets neighborhoods in Los Angeles where drive-by shootings were a nightly occurrence. Two such shootings occurred in which children were killed as they sat in their living rooms. Globe salespeople were instructed to “hit” the houses surrounding those where children were victims. They were also told to contact the parents of those children to sell policies for their other children. TomRaskin , an experienced Globe salesman, read of a drive-by shooting at Nancy Leonard’s home, in which Leonard’s 5-year-old son was killed. The Los Angeles Times reported that Leonard was a single parent with four other children. Raskin traveled to Leonard’s home and described the benefits of a Globe policy for her other children. He offered her the $10,000 term life policy for each of the children for a total cost of $21 per month. Leonard was in the process of making funeral arrangements for her son, and Raskin noted, “See how much it costs for a funeral.”

Leonard had been given several tranquilizers the night before by a physician at the hospital’s emergency room. The physician had also given her 15 more tranquilizers to help her through the following week. She had taken one additional tranquilizer an hour before Raskin arrived, using a Coors Lite beer to take the pill. Leonard signed the contract for the policy. After her son’s funeral, she received the first month’s bill for it and exclaimed, “I didn’t buy any life insurance! Where did this come from?”

Discuss whether Leonard had legal standing to sue Globe.

(1) Did she have to pay for the life insurance?

(2) Discuss the ethical issues involved in the Globe’s sales program.

(3) Discuss the legal issues involved in Raskin’s decision to target Leonard the day after her son’s death.

Polls issues

Polls issues

• You should use New Courier or Times New Roman, 12 point font, double-spacing, and one-inch margins on all four sides of the paper. The assignment is to be formatted according to the Modern Language Association (MLA) style which includes works cited page but does NOT include a title page. Students should research this style in order to properly format the assignment (see the Purdue Online Writing Lab).
• All writing assignments will be analyzed using Safe Assign. Essays that contain plagiarized material will receive a significant reduction in points or a zero. Students may receive a failing grade in the course for submitting plagiarized material.

Note

Do not cut and paste information from an online source or copy information directly from the textbook without using quotations and
citing the information.

Submission Instructions:

Topic:
Find three polls on the same issue (for example, the death penalty, marijuana legalization, same-sex marriage, or any other policy topic) from three different time periods (such as the 1990s, the 2000s, and the 2010s). The polls MUST be about policy issues (not about a politician, candidate, or election campaign). Compare the polls by type (internet, phone), sample size, and the wording of the questions. Have the attitudes reflected in the polls concerning that issue changed or stayed relatively the same? If the polls show that attitudes have changed, what are some of the reasons for that change? [Hint: Pew Research and Gallup are good sources for public opinion data on policy issues.]

Animal

Animal

Your assignment is to create a hierarchy of classes representing animals.

The root of the hierarchy should be a class named Animal (in file Animal.java), described in more detail below.

There must be at least two subclasses of Animal (you are welcome to have more than two). If you have no other ideas, you may name the subclasses Pet (Pet.java) and Marine Animal (MarineAnimal.java), but you are welcome to choose different groups of animals.

Each of your subclasses of Animal must in turn have at least one subclass (it may have more). Each of these sub-sub-classes of Animal must represent a specific animal, such as dog, cat, green turtle, octopus, and so on. In total, you must have at least six of these classes, representing six different kinds of animals. Choose suitable names for each of these animal classes — the TA may award less than full credit if your names are not suitable, so if you choose an unusual animal, make sure an appropriate comment clearly explains why your choice is suitable. It is also your choice which of these animals belongs to which subclass of Animal, but again your score may depend on the appropriateness of your choices and/or on how well your comments explain your choices.

Your Animal class must have at least:

  • An instance variable to represent the animal’s current weight. You can choose the units (grams, kilograms, ounces, pounds, etc.). Your code must have a comment saying which units this variable represents.
  • Another instance variable to represent the animal’s weight when fully grown. This variable should use the same units as the previous variable.
  • Another instance variable to represent the animal’s current size. Again, you must both choose and document suitable units.
  • Another instance variable to represent the animal’s size when fully grown. This variable should use the same units as the previous variable.
  • A constructor that takes as parameters the initial values of all four instance variables, and initializes them accordingly.
  • A method eat that eats a certain amount of food, and increases the animal’s weight by 1% of the amount of food (but without ever exceeding the animal’s fully-grown weight), and similarly increases the animal’s size by exactly 1%, again never exceeding the animal’s fully grow size.
  • Accessor methods for each of the animal’s weight and size.

For your immediate subclasses of Animal, you should choose which instance variables (if any) and methods they provide. The same is true for the individual animal classes. The only requirement is that each of these classes must have at least one new instance method not present in any of its super classes. Again, choose suitable methods. For example, a Pet usually has a name, and a Marine Animal may or may not breathe air.

As well as its own unique method, each animal or group of animals may override one or more methods from its superclass(es). This is up to you.

You must also create a Test Animals class with a main method that does all of the following:

  • Create at least two animal objects of each class of each specific animal. Since you are required to create at least six specific animal classes, the test program will have at least twelve animal objects. Animals should be created with a reasonable minimum size and weight.
  • Feed each of the animals at least until it is fully grown. Once the animal is fully grown both in weight and in size, print the animal’s name and how many feedings it took for it to grow to full size and weight.
  • Call at least once each of the methods specific to each of the animal classes.
  • Call at least once each of the methods specific to each of the classes representing groups of animals.

Note

Please attach the requested programs below as your assignment submission.

The code in your Test Animals class need not be all in the main method, and in fact you are encouraged to create and use multiple methods within this class.

U-S tobacco development

U-S tobacco development

1) . The sale of cigarettes in many developed countries either has peaked or is declining. However, the developing markets represent major growth markets. Should U.S. tobacco companies capitalize on this opportunity?

2). Abercrombie & Fitch has been criticized for advertising explicit sex in their clothing catalogs which are targeted at teenagers. But teens are also influenced by advertisements online and through social media. Where do you think companies should “draw the line” with questionable advertising when it comes to targeting teenagers?

symptoms of Anxiety Disorders

symptoms of Anxiety Disorders

Common symptoms of anxiety disorders include chest pains, shortness of breath, and other physical symptoms that may be mistaken for a heart attack or other physical ailment. These manifestations often prompt patients to seek care from their primary care providers or emergency departments. Once it is determined that there is no organic basis for these symptoms, patients are typically referred to a psychiatric mental health practitioner for anxiolytic therapy.

TO PREPARE

· As you examine the patient case study consider how you might assess and treat patients presenting with anxiety disorders.

  • Reflect on the psychopharmacologic treatments you might recommend for the assessment and      treatment of patients requiring anxiolytic therapy.
