Discussion board – funding schools

Schools always seem to be at the short end of the political stick when it comes to funding. State tax dollars are the principal means of funding schools, yet it would be very unpopular for politicians to suggest raising taxes even if schools are underfunded.

Some suggest that it would be better to fund schools locally through local taxes. Others say it would be more efficient if we privatized schools as the charter school movement suggests. Still, others suggest that if we offer extra dollars to schools that perform well on the FCAT then that will get everyone to be more successful with the funds they have and to compete for additional merit funds.

What do you think is the best remedy for the difficult question of how best to provide schools with sufficient funds to do a good job?

Film analysis assignment | English homework help

Length: 3-4p Due after 4 hours.

MLA format, using citations

Overview: Before writing this paper, you will watch two movies. Your job is to write a paper that critically compares, contrasts, and analyzes these two movies. In order to do this, you will need to find a theme or create a hypothesis to link both works. You will then argue and prove that point through your body paragraphs. Here are some potential questions you may find helpful in order to start analyzing the films and article:

  • What are the themes in each of the films?
  • How do the movies relate to each other? What connections can you make between one or more of the works? What similarities do you see between the works?
  • What are some cultural values addressed in the films?
  • What different perspectives are portrayed by the people or groups in each work? Which characters or scenes illustrate these perspectives?
  • Does one film have a significantly different point of view than another work? Why do you think the film had such a different perspective? What is the author/filmmaker trying to show, argue, or critique?

Remember, since you are writing a critical essay that argues a specific point, for each main idea that you address in your essay, you will need to support it with details from a movie or article.

I have provided some analytic articles that may help you start thinking about themes in these films. You may use these articles in your paper, but are not required to.

In addition, since you will be using multiple sources (movies and possibly an article), you will need to cite all references to those sources.

you can also use one quote from watch movie!the movies are  The Pursuit of Happyness and lion.
what specific claims you can make about the movies.  the main character in each movie struggles to succeed in their goal. This would be a good claim to explore with support from the movies. What does “success” look like for Chris Gardener? What does it look like for Saroo? What obstacles does each character face to achieve this success?

Label each file name according to the section of the assignment it is written for. Additionally, you may create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.

One of the main functions of any business is to be able to use data to leverage a strategic competitive advantage. This feat hinges upon a company’s ability to transform data into quality information. The use of relational databases is a necessity for contemporary organizations; however, data warehousing has become a strategic priority due to the enormous amounts of data that must be analyzed along with the varying sources from which data comes. Since you are now the CIO of a data-collection company which gathers data by using Web analytics and operational systems, you must design a solution overview that incorporates data warehousing. The executive team needs to be clear about what data warehousing can provide the company.

Section 1: Design Document

  1. Write a four to six (4-6) page design document in which you:      
    • Support the need for data warehousing within your company and elaborate on the best practices that the company will adhere to.
    • Create a schema that supports the company’s business and processes. Explain and support the database schema with relevant arguments that support the rationale for the structure. Note: The minimum requirement for the schema should entail the tables, fields, relationships, views, and indexes.
    • Create an Entity-Relationship (E-R) Diagram relating the tables of your database schema through the use of graphical tools in Microsoft Visio or an open source alternative such as Dia. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length but must be included in the design document appendix. Explain your rationale behind the design of your E-R Diagram.
    • Create a Data Flow Diagram (DFD) relating the tables of your database schema through the use of graphical tools in Microsoft Visio or an open source alternative such as Dia. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length but must be included in the design document appendix.
    • Illustrate the flow of data including both inputs and outputs for the use of a data warehouse. The diagram must map data between source systems, data warehouses and specified data marts. The diagram should map data between source systems, data warehouses, and specified data marts. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
  • Include charts or diagrams created in MS Visio or Dia as an appendix of the design document. All references to these diagrams must be included in the body of the design document.

Section 2: Revised Project Plan

Use Microsoft Project to:

  1. Update the project plan from Project Deliverable 2: Business Requirements, with three to five (3-5) new project tasks each consisting of five to ten (5-10) sub-tasks.

Reading response journal: marcus aurelius’ meditations

INSTRUCTIONS:

For this assignment, you are to read a primary source related to the content of the lecture in this module. Upon completion of the reading, you will need to complete a reading response journal. Reading response journals provide opportunities to practice understanding and evaluation of philosophical conceptions of the good life we consider in the course.

After reading the Meditations reflect on the ideas, arguments, conceptions, and perspectives Marcus Aurelius offers. Consider one of them that you find intriguing, compelling, or important to your understanding of the reading. In doing so, ponder the specific reasons for why you find it intriguing, compelling, or important. Possible considerations to contemplate is the strength of an argument in terms of its validity, its truthfulness in terms of evidence that can support it, its coherence with other ideas presented in the reading, its relatability to your own life (especially the specific values and beliefs you hold–not just a story about how one time…), and how it compares with other philosophical perspectives you have encountered elsewhere. Be sure to explain the argument you choose, define philosophical concepts that you use, and provide examples to support your points. Your explanation should include textual support with citations; any citation style can be used so long as the page number of the quote or paraphrase is provided. To earn full credit and have appropriate philosophical depth, your response should be at least 400 words.
