Requirements for topic selection: 1. Must be related to music. The topic can be arguing about a genre, a group, a style, what comes with a style, advertisements, media outlets etc. 2. Must be researchable. The topic must have research being written and published about it through academic sources. More is discussed below. 3. The most important requirement is for you to want to write about it. If you do not want to write about the topic then it becomes a waste of time and useless for writing. Questions for topic selection: 1. Is the topic arguable? The easiest way to test this is to ask someone around you about the topic. Do they want to argue with you on it? Do they want to talk about it with you? Are they offended, angered, happy, emotionally effected by it? If so, great you have a good topic. If not, keep trying. 2. Is the topic researchable? If you want to write something on Lady Gaga, Corrosion of Conformity or the newest artist out there you will have a very difficult time finding anything academic to support your thesis. Be sure to try to do general research first on your topic in order to determine if it is a researchable one.
You must post 5 topics to the discussion board with rationale for selection. You do not have to have a thesis statement for any of them just answers, with reasoning, to the above questions. For each of the 5 topics you are required to write one paragraph, at least 4 sentences, of reasoning. Is it arguable, and why? And is it researchable and why? Your goal is to get at least one of the 5 topics solidified as something to write on for the first paper. Good Luck! don’t use those examples please

English Assignment Help Compare the opening blocks of Jesus’s teaching in Matthew (Matthew 5–7) and Luke (Luke 4:14–30). Describe how these introductions emphasize different aspects of Jesus’s identity and/or ministry. Then, show how each author continues to build that characterization of Jesus throughout their gospel. To do this, cite at least one other story in each gospel that reinforces the emphasis you identified in the opening block of teaching.
For example, the opening block of teaching in Mark’s gospel is the parable of the soils (Mark 4). You might note that this section of teaching emphasizes that Jesus will be a mysterious figure that even the disciples will struggle to understand. Then, you could highlight the story of Peter confessing that Jesus is the Messiah in Mark 8. Even though Peter gets the title correct, the story reveals that Peter struggles to understand what it means for Jesus to be the Messiah. Specifically, he struggles to understand how suffering and persecution could be part of his identity.
Next, choose which portrait of Jesus (Matthew’s or Luke’s) the present-day Christian community most needs to see. Obviously, both portraits are significant for the present-day church. Nevertheless, you can choose which one you think the present-day community needs most and explain your decision.
Phi 201007 Problem Solving
Skill(s) Being Assessed: Problem Solving
Criteria for Success: In this assignment, you will:Construct a timeline that includes all key events, arranged in a logical order, and based on credible information from provided sources.
Include information in the timeline that is accurate, objective and relevant to a workplace incident.
Produce writing that is clear and well organized and applies appropriate SWS style. Writing contains accurate grammar, mechanics, and spelling.
What to submit/deliverables: A timeline of events based on the sources provided in the assignment.
What is the value of doing this assignment?
You are bombarded with information everyday, from news and social media, family and friends, instructors and peers at school, and from colleagues at work. This information is often unclear, misleading, or based on partial knowledge. You need to piece together incomplete information, or information from different sources (some credible, some less so, or that represent different perspectives) in order to solve problems and make sense of evidence.
In this assignment, you have the opportunity to practice your problem-solving skill working through information (some more or less credible) in order to piece together the events of an unfortunate workplace incident. This will give you the opportunity to practice your problem-solving skill by identifying and presenting clear and accurate information as the first step in the problem-solving process. You will use different sources of information as clues you must piece together, identify important questions to follow up on, and uncover connections that will allow you to reach evidence-based conclusions. Doing so will not only help you be successful in this course, but as you learn to use credible information to help solve problems in your personal and professional life.
This will lay the foundation for your second assignment where you will make (or decide against) disciplinary recommendations based on your findings.
Your goal for this assignment is to: Practice your problem-solving skill by analyzing different sources of information in order to create a timeline of events to help you piece together the details of a problem (a workplace event).
What you need to complete this assignment: To complete this assignment, you will need the following resources:
Loss Prevention Interview Transcripts for Michael, Sarah, and Rachelle; and Security Camera Footage [DOCX] (a time-stamped transcript).
Office Layout Map [PDF].
Note: All of the resources above can be found on the Submit page in Week 3 of Blackboard.
A valuable piece of technology testing equipment went missing from your company after arriving in a shipment. The same day, a seemingly identical item was posted for sale on an internet auction site. Three employees were present within the 90-minute window that the item went missing.You are the director of Viewpoint, the company’s employee relations department. The Viewpoint Director position, a role in Human Resources, means that you are an advocate for all employees and that your primary responsibility is to relate employee concerns to leadership and provide guidance on situations involving employee discipline (as requested). The inventory manager has asked you to assist in this loss prevention case by constructing a timeline of events as the first step.
Steps to complete: In Week 3, complete and submit your assignment in BlackBoard using the following steps:
STEP 1: Review the transcripts of all three employees (Page 3.10 in the Webtext) and the security camera footage (Page 3.11). Do not use any other sources. Space for note taking is provided in the Webtext. As you review the sources, use the provided space to take notes on the following:
What information did you learn from each source?
What do the sources agree on?
What events definitely happened, and which likely happened?
What conflicting information do you notice?
STEP 2: Determine the most relevant information needed to construct the best possible timeline based on the provided sources. What information you choose to include (and exclude) will be an important part of your timeline clarity and accuracy. Ensure information is placed properly in the chart.
STEP 3: Create a timeline based on the information you’ve determined most relevant. The timeline template is located on Page 3.12 in the Webtext. As you create your timeline, consider the following:
Is the timeline easy to understand? Does it read clearly and in a logical order?
Is the language and presentation appropriate for a professional audience? Consider grammar, choice of wording, and visual effectiveness.
STEP 4: Download your complete timeline from the webtext. Once downloaded, review the timeline for accuracy and completeness. Edit as needed. Note: The timeline template provided in the webtext has a set number of blank areas for you to fill. If you decide there are fewer or a greater number of events than the spaces provided, you can add additional entries to your timeline after downloading the template.
STEP 5: Submit your timeline via Blackboard on the Submit page in Week 3. Note: Your grade will be based on a combination of the information you choose to include, your timeline, and its clarity. Review the rubric on the assignment submission page.
