Estimated time to complete: 2 hours Response posts are worth  50% of your grade on this discussion.  Please review the rubric to ensure your peer responses meet the criteria . Discussion Post 5- Analysis of a Persuasive Speech · What is the speaker’s topic? The speaker’s topic is that there is a huge disability employment gap, sometimes up to 80%. She speaks on the fact that there is so much untapped potential simply due to the fact that an individual has a disability, and that most employers either shy away from hiring them or if they do, they see it as a form of a good deed or necessary to meet a quota. She is aiming to change our thinking on that. · Who is the speaker’s target audience?  The speaker’s target audience is everyone I believe. She is targeting employers by giving them ideas and steps to take to fix the issues she has seen, and with ways to improve. She provides examples of what work places she has worked in did for her and her fellow employees. She is targeting fellow employees by telling them that they are often so cautious to not offend someone with a disability, that they end up not including them on things or accidentally treating them differently or coldly as a default. She is targeting people who do not have disabilities by letting them know some of the things she, and others with disabilities, goes through on a daily basis not only on the job search and in the workplace.  She also could be targeting innovators who have no stake in the workplace, but who can help to make them all more inclusive and have better work practices. I think she is lastly targeting individuals with disabilities by giving them the tools as well to take back to their workplace and help to spark a change of innovation and inclusion, allowing everyone to feel as if they have a voice and a stake in the workplace. I feel that I know these are her target audiences due to the fact that it seems everyone is included because we all can take a part in what she is saying and we can all take something away from it. · What is the speaker’s thesis? The speaker’s thesis is, “The three things that every work place can do to truly help welcome people with disabilities is if we stop making assumptions, rethink accessibility, and embrace flexibility.” · How did the speaker use logos? She used logos in many ways by appealing to simple logic by stating how there are many things that we all use and benefit from today that was initially developed for people with disabilities, such as closed captioning, electric toothbrushes, and audiobooks. This really resonated with me because I use those three things daily, and I never thought that they were initially developed for people with disabilities. This made sense to me and was logical. · How did the speaker use ethos? She used ethos by using and stating her resources often and also by stating early on that she herself is a person with a disability, a paralyzed arm and a mental health diagnosis, and that she has worked in different industries. She is establishing credibility here because as a person with a disability, she has experienced the things she is talking about making her seem more truthful and reliable, than if I were to give a speech about this. · How did the speaker use pathos? She used pathos by appealing not only to my frustration for the fact that the unemployment rate for those with disabilities is often up to 80%, but also by appealing to my empathy and sympathy when she mentioned how isolated and left out most of those individuals with disabilities feel in the workplace. She states that by trying to not offend those with disabilities, individuals often don’t include them at all or ask them about their life at all, which makes me sad.  · What other persuasive techniques did the speaker use? She used a lot of thought provoking language and speaking, and she also encourages us to consider others and make a change in our workplace. She also uses anecdotes and her own experiences to make it seem more relatable to us. · Did the speaker use visual aids? If so, how did these help persuade you? She did use visual aids throughout the whole speech. She used illustrations of people and workplaces and things, and this not only kept my attention but also brought things to the forefront of my mind that I would not have otherwise thought about. For example, the simple fact that those in wheelchairs need accessibility options, and the fact that sign language and closed captions are not as commonplace as they should be. · Were there elements of defective persuasion? If so, what were they? I did not notice or see any specific elements of defective persuasion in her speech. I do think if there was any, she states that everyone’s assumptions are rooted in pity, when I know that not everyone’s assumptions, at least mine, is not rooted in pity, so maybe that could be an example of this in a small way. · Did the speaker persuade you to listen to their point? Why or why not? The speaker did successfully persuade me to listen to their point. I did not realize that the employment gap was so high and that these individuals struggled so much not only to find a job, but also to feel welcome and comfortable in the work place. She made me think of things that I never do, as I do not have a disability and sometimes did not consider how those with disabilities may struggle or feel. · What is the speaker’s topic? The speaker’s topic is empowering and supporting employees with disabilities in the workplace. · Who is the speaker’s target audience? How do you know? The target audience is employers, managers, human resource workers, and anyone involved in creating inclusive workplaces. I know this because she is trying to persuade the audience to hire people with disabilities because they are no different than any normal person and persuade them to help people with disabilities to thrive in a workplace. · What is the speaker’s thesis? The speaker’s thesis is that people with any kind of disabilities can do good work. People in the workspace need to be open, accepting, and have no assumptions toward disabled people because they would like to be seen as equals. · How did the speaker use logos? She used facts and statistics. She stated, “in most countries, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities is twice that of people without disabilities”. Also, she stated “about 62 percent of employees with disabilities, have ones that are not apparent”. These facts and statistics help the speaker’s main point by adding information to the point. · How did the speaker use ethos? The speaker used ethos by using personal integrity. She brought up the fact that she is a disabled person herself who has had success in jobs. · How did the speaker use pathos? The speaker used ethos by saying how she is paralyzed in one arm, and she has a mental health disability working in finances and entertainment. This story appeals to the viewers emotions because she knows how it feels to be a disabled person that understands the discrimination and incidents she discussed in the speech. Also, when she shares how disabled people, such as herself, feel isolated and left out when people do not invite them to out or they are scared to ask them anything. Both usages of pathos pull on my heartstrings and appeal to my emotions because I would not like to feel left out or even feel like people looked at me differently because of something I was born with. · What other persuasive techniques did the speaker use? One of the other persuasive techniques the speaker used is inclusive language such as “we”. This shows us that she is connected to the topic. Another persuasive technique she used was anecdotes such as the story on how they helped her be comfortable, but still inclusive with everybody else. In addition to those two techniques, she used rhetorical questions that made the audience think on the topic (“What do my employees need in order to survive”). All these techniques helped her main point. · Did the speaker use visual aids? If so, how did these help persuade you? Yes, the speaker used visual aids. For example, when she used the balance to show how the different methods of pity does overpower disabled people’s ability to be seen as equal.  The speaker showed me charts for her statistics, pictures, and colorful slides with little words. These visual aids guided me through the information and kept me engaged with the topic. · Were there elements of defective persuasion? If so, what were they? I did not see any apparent elements of defective persuasion. The speaker did not see anything that included logical fallacies, misleading arguments, manipulation of pf emotions, or unreliable or biased evidence. I think the speaker hit all the high points to persuade the audience to look at disabled people in the workplace in a different light. · Did the speaker persuade you to listen to their point? Why or why not? The speaker persuaded me to listen to her point. The main reason I say this is because she understands these situations presented from a front row seat point of view. I get to understand the side of a disabled person, so I can know what to do right in my workplace or if I become a manager to make an inclusive environment. References: TED. (2023, April 19).

Kara Moore Unit [replace with unit title] Evil Genius? How Dishonesty Can Lead to Greater Creativity Motivation: Previous research has found a correlation between dishonesty and creativity but it was not clear whether being dishonest actually causes an increase in creativity so the researchers sought to test this. This is important because if being dishonest does cause creativity then companies may be able to use this to their advantage with their employees. Experiment 1 Hypothesis: The researchers hypothesized that people will be more creative after being dishonest because being dishonest creates a certain type of freedom. Design and Procedure: The researchers conducted an experiment where they randomly assigned people to lie or tell the truth about their performance on a computer-based math-and-logic game. The independent variable was honesty. Afterwards, the researchers gave participants a problem solving task called the Dunker candle problem. The researchers measured creativity (dependent variable) by performance on the Dunker candle problem (operationalization). Findings: The major findings are that dishonesty can increase creativity (as measured by the Dunker candle problem) potentially because people are in an unconstrained state when they lie. Experiment 2 Hypothesis: Design and Procedure: Findings: Second Training Material Heading Here Second training material reflection here.

The exile was Israel’s defining moment, although frustratingly, we have very little information about the details of the exile itself, both in literature and in material remains.  Basing themselves on the scanty but precious literature that was produced during this period and subsequent post-exilic period, as well as precious few other non-biblical details, it is the change in the people themselves that exhibit what the exile must have represented.  A people with regional identity and religion who could have easily vanished because of the conquest and exile, and assimilation, instead emerged as a people with an identity, universal religion, morality, and way of life that has endured to this day, the Jews.  From its origins in the ancient Israelite religion, Judaism as we know it would truly emerge in the periods following the exile.  For our discussions this week, we will explore the meaning of exile for Jews and for other communities and how people can turn the trauma of exile into a catalyst for transformation.   This week’s discussions expound on Judah’s traumatic experience of exile and its aftermath.  When answering these discussion questions, integrate what you have learned from the textbook and other resources on the Babylonian Exile and on the exilic experience.  For this discussion, choose and answer three of the six categories of related questions below and respond to them in light of this week’s readings.      Describe ‘exile’ and the exilic experience.  What are some of its major characteristics? Where do we most see the exilic experience today? What do exiles strive for?  What do they fear? What are forms of exile that a person or community can face? What kind of literary, artistic, and religious expression may be typical of exiles? What type of communities emerge(d) among exiles?  What role do traditions and customs, memory, art, religion, etc., play within exilic communities? What is restoration/reconstruction after a calamity?  What does it involve? What kinds of issues can returning exiles experience upon their return? How can communities in a diaspora preserve their identity when they no longer envision themselves returning? How do we see this exhibited in Jewish communities? What lessons can Christian communities learn about their forms of exilic experiences? How do ‘exile,’ ‘return,’ and ‘diaspora’ (from both the literal or broader meanings of exile, return, and diaspora) translate within ministerial settings? Submission Instructions: Your initial post should be at least 250-300 words for each discussion post, formatted and cited in the current APA style. Provide support for your work from at least two academic sources less than five years old.

During the decades of exile, the composition of what would become the full Torah took shape. The contributions of the Priestly (P) writers/scribes and the Deuteronomists’ compositions were completed by scribes, perhaps sponsored by the exiled Judean royal family of Jehoiachin in Babylon.  The oracles and lives of the prophets, especially Jeremiah, were composed.  Several other full compositions were achieved, among them: the Priestly (P) contributions (including the first creation story), Lamentations, Ezekiel, and the oracles of an exilic prophet, who remains unknown to us, whom we simply call Second Isaiah (Is 40-54).  Each offered something distinctly useful for exiled communities then and always.   Based on a few glances (see below) at the first creation story and at each of these three books, in this second discussion, describe what you identify as the contributions of this creation story and of these three very distinct books written during the exilic period.  What do you surmise each offered to the exiles, again, based on what you now know about the exiles and the exilic period?  Genesis 1:1-2:3 Lamentations Ezekiel Second Isaiah (Isaiah 40-54) Submission Instructions: Your initial post should be at least 250-300 words for each discussion post, formatted and cited in the current APA style.

The purpose of this exercise is to conduct a brief examination of the book of the prophet Amos employing the ‘three-world’ organizing framework for literary analysis.  At the same time, it is an opportunity to explore the book about the oracles and life of one of Israel’s great prophets, the function of prophecy as a concern not for foretelling but of forthtelling, a call to reform and transformation.  The prophets were also poets, and the oracles bear witness to an oral and written genre that has shaped the ‘consciousness and consciences’ of people and civilizations for millennia.  As a result of this analysis of Amos, you should also gain a sense of the meaning of being prophetic today in response to the many challenges of the Church and the world that we have inherited and are passing on.      Instructions:  You could consult a biblical commentary for this exercise if you wish, but your work should be primarily the result of your analysis.  Do indicate what sources you consulted. (This is not a paper; it is an exercise.) Follow the outline below and use it as the template of your writing: An introduction to the book that includes your reactions to reading Amos.  This should be written following the reading and writing process (.5 page). Briefly describe the ‘world behind the text’ of Amos by identifying the book’s historical context (.5 page). Conduct a partial literary analysis on Amos’s world of/within the text (1 page outline format). Focus on three aspects: The imagery in Amos and how it offers examples of how its artistry can communicate its main exhortations more effectively.  The prophetic oracles are richly poetic, galvanizing imagery taken from various sectors of life: natural, agricultural, cultic, commercial, political, and cultural.  To do so, describe the imagery employed for the ruling class of the Northern Israelite kingdom, the poor (the majority of the population at the time), imagery regarding justice/injustice, and other images. Identifying the layout and features of the book similarly alerts the reader to the creative way its central message is effectively delivered.  For example, the type of genre employed, geographical references, structure, and tenor. What is the ‘theology’ of Amos?  How is God envisioned/presented? How does Amos interpret “the day of the LORD,” which was typically imagined as the day/time of national vindication? Consider ‘the world in front of the text’ of Amos.  Focus on today’s audiences: How does/can Amos’ prophetic message address today’s many societal and global challenges?  What does it challenge people today to do?  Where do you see resistance to a message like this?  How are/can people be prophetic today?  (1 page) Submission Instructions:   The paper must be clear and concise, and students will lose points for improper grammar, punctuation, and misspelling. The paper is to be no shorter than 3 pages in length and no more than 3.5 pages in length. The student will automatically lose points if these limits are not followed. Journal articles and books should be referenced according to the current APA style (the library has a copy of the APA Manual). The work should be academic, written in an academic voice.

The purpose of this exercise is to conduct a brief examination of the book of the prophet Amos employing the ‘three-world’ organizing framework for literary analysis.  At the same time, it is an opportunity to explore the book about the oracles and life of one of Israel’s great prophets, the

Key Assignment Draft Part 1 Craft a 1 page memo.

Assignment Readings Stress not only affects the structure and function of the brain, but its genetic makeup as well. In this module you were introduced to the various effects stress has on each body system, including the reproductive system. New research suggests that experiencing intense psychological trauma may have a genetic impact on a person’s future children. In the following video, Dr. Rachel Yehuda studied the genetic effects in a population of Holocaust survivors and found variations from the norm in both generations for the gene associated with depression and anxiety disorders. The findings imply that children of individuals who experience profound stress in life may be more likely to develop stress or anxiety disorders themselves. Can Trauma Be Passed to the Next Generation Through DNA?  PBS Learning Media. Accessed at Answer the following questions in essay format. For additional details, see the Case Assignment directions below. How does experiencing trauma affect a person’s life? Describe the term epigenetics. How does stress play a role in epigenetics? Describe an event in history that could have caused stress-related changes to the next generation (some examples include the Holocaust, 9-11 terrorist attack, the Dutch famine of 1944). Include the disorders these children experienced (such as anxiety, depression, mental disorders, etc). Why might it be helpful to know how children will be affected by trauma their parents experienced? What kinds of events going on in the world right now could be producing similar effects in future generations? Organize this essay assignment using subtitles that summarize the topic from each question above. For example, to answer Question 1, use a descriptive subtitle like the following: Effects of Trauma. Answer each question under the subtitle using complete sentences that relate back to the question. Be sure to use APA formatting throughout your essay with 1-inch margins, 12-pt font, and double spacing throughout. Include a title page, introduction, answers to the questions with subtitles, and concluding paragraph. Remember to include in-text citations within the body of the essay referencing your resources (i.e., Murray, 2014). Also, be sure to include a reference section at the end of your assignment listing all required readings and any additional resources you used to complete your essay. M.H.M.

please see attachment  Please review the attachment below and address the following 4 questions in a 1-page essay: 1. In the case study, do you believe the ends justify the means? In other words, does the goal of discharging the patient from an institutional setting into everyday community living justify deceiving him? Explain your reasoning. 2. Do you think it is ever ethically permissible to deceive clients? Under what circumstances? Why or why not? 3. To what degree should family members or legal guardians have full capacity to make decisions or give consent on behalf of those under their care? Explain. 4. Do you think severely mentally ill people retain any rights “to determine what shall be done with their own bodies?” Why or why not? Case Study In the context of U.S. healthcare, Justice Benjamin Cardozo expressed the value of autonomy and liberty in Schloendorff v. Society of New York Hospitals (1914), stating that individuals have the right to determine what happens to their own bodies. This case established informed consent as a crucial principle in modern medical ethics. However, subsequent events have shown instances where patient autonomy has been overridden. For example, in Buck v. Bell (1927), involuntary sterilization of “mental defectives” was deemed justified by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. The Tuskegee Syphilis Study, which lasted from 1932 to 1972, also violated patient autonomy by withholding treatment from African-American males. The President’s Commission for the Study of Ethical Problems in Medicine and Biomedical and Behavioral Research emphasized the importance of informed consent, recognizing that adults have the right to accept or reject healthcare interventions based on personal values and goals. However, there are cases where patients are deemed incompetent, and someone else is designated to make decisions on their behalf. Consider the following case: A middle-aged man, declared mentally incompetent, was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital due to severe paranoid thinking. His adult son, granted guardianship and medical power of attorney, made decisions regarding the use of psychotropic medications to control the patient’s violent behavior. Despite the medications’ limited impact on the patient’s paranoid symptoms, a new drug in pill form showed promise for his return to the community. The suggestion to mix the pill in his pudding to address the patient’s fear of being poisoned arose. Hospital staff obtained informed consent from the son, who prioritized the patient’s living outside the institution and close to loved ones. However, the staff felt uneasy about deceiving the patient despite obtaining consent from the guardian. Use this scenario as the basis for your assignment. You are the caregiver. How would you feel?

For this assignment, you will research the different ways that managers and leaders use communication to guide their organizations. Find an instance where the organizational leader communicates directly with his or her employees, investors, or customers. Analyze the message, the channel, and the potential for feedback. Do you believe that it is effective? Do you believe that it is the same type of message that a manager would send? Why, or why not? Remember to focus on the communication styles of both leaders and managers. Strive for an equal balance between the two types of communication styles in your assignment. Example: The Apple events that occur in Cupertino whenever Apple unveils a new product or service are examples of the type of communication you should be analyzing in this assignment. During the events, CEO Tim Cook addresses an audience of employees, investors, and the general public. Cook uses multiple channels to communicate with the audience, including a live face-to-face discussion, live streaming of the discussion, and a recorded video. For the assignment, you would view one of the events, analyze Cook’s message and the effectiveness of the channels, and discuss the potential for feedback. Analyze whether or not the message is an effective example of leadership. Explain whether or not you believe a manager could, or should, use the same types of channels to relay a message. Would it be effective? Note: You do not need to use Apple for this assignment. It is provided as an example only. Use the standard five-paragraph format (introduction/body/conclusion). Include at least two academic sources. APA format should be used. The assignment should be a minimum of two pages in length, not including the title and reference pages. Content, organization, and grammar/mechanics will be evaluated.
