writing essay -05

For this week, answer only one of the following three questions and include a Works Cited page in addition to the required page length:

Option 1) Write 1-2 pages on the “moundbuilder” debate of North America. What were some of the early hypotheses for construction? How was this debate finally resolved? (at least 400 words count)

Option 2) Write 1-2 pages about Otzi the iceman. What types of artifacts or ecofacts are found with the iceman? What types of analytical techniques were performed on his remains? How do scientists believe he died? (at least 400 words count)

Option 3) Select one survey or sampling technique reviewed in the readings. Write 1-2 pages discussing your selected method including how it has contributed to helping archaeologists identify sites. (at least 400 words count)

Help wiht it …………………………

One thing to consider as you begin putting together a set of tools and utilities for computer forensics, is that you will need a control process for determining the quality of the tools.  Do they work as advertised?  Are they consistent in output?  Do they work in a manner acceptable to the community?

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has posted a testing methodology document derived from ISO/TEC laboratory testing guidelines, but other guidelines may be available for commercial enterprises.  Conduct research, consider what you’ve learned in other courses for process development, and come up with your own control process for evaluating forensics tools. What questions do you ask and how do you validate and evaluate the answers?

There is no page or word limit, just make sure you are fully answering the questions using proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling.. Remember that your written work must follow APA or MLA formatting for the paper, citations, and any references.

answer these questions use 350-700 words

Q1: Comparing Personal vs. Market Value [40 points]

Think of something that you own and are especially pleased to own, like your most comfortable recliner or sofa, your most stylish piece of clothing, or the bicycle that has accompanied you on so many adventures and pleasure rides. How much would you hope to get for this item if you were to sell it? Next, find something comparable (and comparably old or worn) being advertised online (for example, on eBay or Craigslist). How does the price of this item compare to your asking price? Do you think that the price is fair? That is, would you buy the item for that price? Is the seller an individual or a business? Granted that this isn’t nearly as rigorous as the kind of experiments that Ariely describes, what would you conclude about “the price of ownership,” based on what you have found, and how do your findings compare to Ariely’s?


Q2: Balancing the Effect of Expectations [30 points]

How do you feel about the overall role of suggestion, expectation, and the placebo effect in our lives? On one hand, Ariely points to some of the ways in which these can color our judgment and cause us to make bad decisions. On the other hand, he also points to some of the ways in which they can color our judgment for the better, making food taste better, making music sound better, and even making us feel better physically. To what extent, then, is irrationality harmful, and to what extent beneficial? Is it a worthy goal to want to eradicate all irrationality, even in its occasional benefits? Is a firm grasp of reality and rationality more important than the perceived quality of our food, music, and health? Or do we need a bit of irrationality in our lives, because certain parts of life would be less enjoyable without it? Finally, can we sharpen our rationality in some areas (where rationality is beneficial) while being irrational in others (where irrationality is beneficial), or are we bound to go more or less all the way in either direction?

Q3: Poll Analysis [40 points]

Investigate the validity of a poll for yourself, using what Wheelan has taught us about these instruments’ potential biases. Start by finding a recently published poll online. (If you don’t frequent news websites or have a particular issue in mind, an easy way to find a recent poll is to go to a website like gallup.com, or you can Google something like “new york times poll,” “washington post poll,” “cnn poll,” etc.) State what poll you’re investigating, who carried it out and when, and where it can be found online (with a specific URL). Next, find and read the description of the poll’s methodology, and summarize the sampling methods used to collect the data. Then skim the poll’s questions and evaluate how well some of the more interesting questions avoid bias through their wording. Give three examples, either of bad choices of wording, or of good choices where different wording might have produced biased answers. Finally, evaluate the overall validity of the poll. Does the sampling method seem like it provides a sample representative of the respective population? Are the questions asked in such a way as to promote honest and accurate answers?

Q4: Statistics, the Breakfast of Champions [40 points]

Imagine that you’ve just collected a bunch of data on college students, particularly their eating habits and their performance in school. Because of all that you’ve learned from Wheelan, your sampling and measurement methods are flawless, so now you’re ready to do some hypothesis testing. You’re convinced that college students who eat Wheaties breakfast cereal (the “breakfast of champions”) get better grades than those who do not eat Wheaties. Beyond that, you believe that the more Wheaties a given student eats, the better his or her grades will be. Describe and explain the process of carrying out your test of this hypothesis, step by step, beginning with a null hypothesis and finally stating your findings. (Make up the needed unknown statistics if it makes it easier to describe and explain the process.)

Model of Followership

Research the Kelley model of followership beginning with the article by Bjugstad, Thach, and Thompson (2006):

Bjugstad, K., Thach, E., & Thompson, K. (2006). A fresh look at followership: A model for matching followership and leadership styles. Journal of Behavioral & Applied Management, 7(3), 304-319.

Then, write an essay that addresses the following elements:

  • Describe Kelley’s effective followership.
  • Describe how a leader might utilize the Kelley model of followership to assess follower effectiveness.
  • Identify the categories of followers.
  • Explain how knowledge of effective followership can help one’s leadership perspective.
  • Discuss how a leader might develop individuals into more effective followers.

Utilize an academic online Library to locate two sources to use as references that support your essay. Your essay should be two to three pages in length.

Be sure to include the rubric elements from the guidelines below:

  • The introduction engages the reader in the topic with some form of creative “hook” (such as a story, quote, example, etc.) and provides a clear background for the topic so that readers can gain an understanding of the purpose of the paper.
  • The quality of the discussion is clear and appropriate, providing strong evidence of critical thinking.
  • The organization results in clarity and presents logically arranged points to support the proposed solution.
  • The writing is clear and concise with correct sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation, and it is free from spelling errors.
  • The number of credible academic sources meets or exceeds requirements, and they are properly cited using APA format.

Using Camus’ “Create Dangerously” as a model for style and tone and a guideline for

structure, make an attempt to address the question “what does it matter who is


Camus’ talk/essay centers around the questions of what sort of art an artist should

produce, the role of the artist in society, and the role of art in society. He looks at the

position of the artist and reasons why artists might find themselves being criticized

for having produced particular works and then examines some assumptions that lie

beneath these criticism to see if those assumptions are correct. Based upon his

conclusions in those sections he then goes on to put together his own overall


I’m asking you to do the same sort of work in your essay, but rather than

considering the piece of art (the text) as the central part, we are thinking about how

the public’s view of the artist might shape the public’s opinion about the text.

Just as Camus ends up looking at the artist and society in his attempt to understand

what sort of art an artist should produce, I expect that you may need to think about

message, purpose, context, and audience when thinking about the way in which we

need to create our own ethos in communication.

Length wise, I expect that most writers would need to write for at least six pages

(double spaced, in MLA format) to attempt a satisfying, thoughtful and productive

response, and that a focused response would not go much longer than eight pages.

Your readers will all be familiar with the readings from our course, so those

readings would be useful for discussing examples of what you mean. You may also

use outside examples if you are trying to make a point not covered by one of our

class readings, but keep in mind that an outside text might require more explanation

and might push your paper longer that you prefer.

All examples that you refer to in your paper or that you use to help shape your own

explanations in the paper need to be identified in the paper and included in the

works cited.

You’ve had seven weeks to consider this question. Let’s see what you have come up

with. I’m looking forward to your input.

And professor’s comments are: Good work on the writing and imitation side of things, but this essay is a bit off-topic for the prompt itself. Too much about art (not our subject) and not enough about ethos. I’ll grade this on quality of writing and polish if you choose to complete what you have, but it will not qualify as superior work if you are aiming for that in the portfolio. That would require a topic shift and deeper revision.
