Case Analysis

Case Analysis

Instructions Week 6 Case Description and Analysis Like before, this assignment will be a case description and analysis. The expectation is that you identify the primary elements of the case [facts, allegations, arguments, decisions, etc.], describe the outcome following the case or a forecasted outcome of a current case, and evaluate and critique the arguments, decisions, and outcomes. Identify facts, allegations, arguments, court decision Describe the relevance or significance of decisions based on actual or possible outcomes in relation to the hospitality industry Evaluate and critique arguments, decisions, and outcomes You are being tasked with providing evaluation, analysis, or critique. This is not limited to providing an outline, timeline, or case brief. When they are relevant to the arguments or outcome, motions and proceedings can be identified, but the focus is on identifying the legal issue presented (which is not a procedural question) and discussing the arguments and decisions made in relation to that issue. The writing does not need to convey agreement with any decision and should be an objective, unbiased assessment of the legal issue, relevant law or precedent, and the outcome. The aim is to demonstrate your understanding of the law, how it is interpreted/implemented, and how it affects the hospitality industry. Helton v. Glenn Enterprises, Inc. For this assignment, refer to the of Helton, et al. v. Glenn Enterprises, Inc., No. E2005-00103-COA-R3-CV – Filed January 26, 2006.

Physical acoustics

Implement your own independent research project in the area of Acoustics. This could involve a research question in physical acoustics or psychoacoustics. It could involve building a computer model of the acoustics of an instrument or a room. It might involve building a new instrument or renovating an existing room to improve the acoustics. (1) Whatever research project you choose (I encourage you to discuss possible topics with me after class or via email), you should have a research question(what are you going to study), a hypothesis about the question(how you think the system behaves/will behave), an experimental design(how you decided to study the question), and some analysis and conclusions of your findings (what did you find and why is it important). (2) Prepare a paper on the order of 5-10 pages describing the research you did. This should include an Introduction, Background (Literature Review – that is, what has been done before on this subject?), Method (What did you do?), and Conclusions (What did you find?). You will give a short talk (about 7 minutes depending on how many presentations we have) on the last day of class discussing your findings. (3) Finally you will need to make a demo video talking about your research project and the experiment you conducted. This should be about 5 minutes long, and should succinctly show what you did and why for someone who wants to know about your project in the future. You can upload the video directly to the course site or send me a link to a YouTube or similar video hosting site. It has been customary to treat sound classifications separately, i.e. 1) physical characteristics of sounds in the field of acoustics, 2) the perception of sounds in the field of psychoacoustics, 3) the cognitive and emotional variables of sounds in the field of semiotics, semantics and aesthetics. The attempt to merge these areas is today more than an interesting academic endeavor; it is a crucial scientific step in order to enhance human living conditions in sonically complex mega-cities.

Frequency Data Runs

Part 1 Select 1 of the datasets: Dataset A (will be attached) Dataset B (will be attached) Identify which data set was selected Set up a frequency table with names for variables and run the frequency analysis. Part 2 Using the same dataset you selected for this week’s Frequency Data Runs assignment (either data set A or B develop a histogram, pie chart, line graph, and bar graph. Part 3 Review others’ questions and using your professional experience, provide an answer or related insights in 150 words. 2 APA sources cited. I have provided the original question and the response that you are responding to. Original Question This week focuses on distributions and graphical representation of data. Write a 250- to 300-word response to the following: Select a graphical representation of data introduced in this week’s readings. Give a brief introduction of the statistical graph ,and explain the types of variables or data that could be portrayed using it. As a matter of first importance, we need to specify that graphical portrayal of information contains data and examination. It makes it more clear. Charts convey outwardly instead of in words or numbers, like reports, research reports, and government records. For the current conversation, I halted upon the histogram. The explanation is how the writers talk about it (Frankfort-Nachmias and Leon-Guerrero, 2018). Histograms plot frequencies or rates by bunches for ordinal and span proportion factors. Contrasting and Information are Beautiful, which is another dazzling graphical portrayal. However, the methodology is unique (Keller, 2006) and (University of Phoenix, 2020). To start with, histogram seems like a visual diagram; however, they contain more data that allows you to think about the recurrence of various gatherings of qualities and the state of that recurrence (Hunter-Thomson, 2018). Utilized for graphic information mining and numerous measurable programming frameworks incorporate structure histograms (Rauch& Šimůnek, 2019). Simultaneously, they give more data than mean worth and summation, particularly with its capacity to provide molding to information appropriation. This data for strategy settling on choices in an immediately seen way (Zheng et al., 2021). One of the experts in measurements obstinate that histograms successfully uncover the information’s example and its transmission. A histogram is suitable for factors estimated mathematically and utilizing a stretch scale. Instances of such factors include age, stature, and weight, among other persistent factors. Histograms offer different benefits, including distinguishing insignificant and critical qualities that fall a long way from the remainder of the information. Accordingly, analysts may utilize histograms to decide information’s adequacy for intriguing measurements (Nuzzo,2019).

Spectre and Meltdown

Critically analyze a real-world case study based on business law and ethics. Instructions Carefully review the following case study and the two scenarios presented. Be mindful that you are weighing business interests against ethical and legal obligations. Read The Vulnerability Disclosure Debate Introduction The debate over “responsible” disclosure of software vulnerabilities has been a mainstay in the security space. In 2015, new fuel was added to the fire as Google disclosed a Microsoft Windows vulnerability, along with exploit code, two days before the scheduled patch. (Exploit code is the stretch of code that hackers can exploit And in 2018, the debate came back into the forefront with the infamous Intel Spectre and Meltdown chip problems. The Google-Microsoft conflict highlights the issues that can arise between companies around disclosure. The Spectre and Meltdown flaws show how vulnerabilities can pit companies against the U.S. government and consumers. Company v. Company Disclosure Debate In 2015, the bug was found by Google’s in-house security research team, which searches for vulnerabilities in Google software, as well as that of other vendors, including Microsoft. Upon finding a vulnerability, Google adheres to a strict 90-day policy: Vendors are notified of the bug, and a public disclosure is automatically released 90 days after, regardless of whether the bug has been addressed. Microsoft initially asked for an extension beyond the 90 days, which was denied by Google, as was a request to extend the disclosure date to the first “Patch Tuesday” of the month (the second Tuesday of the month, and preferred release date for patches for developers). Microsoft criticized Google in a blog post, accusing the company’s decision of being a “gotcha” opportunity, and at the expense of the users, who were at risk for the two days between the disclosure and the patch release. Microsoft reiterated its support for “Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure,” which calls for security researchers to work closely with developers in ensuring a fix is released before the public disclosure. Google, and supporters of similar disclosure policies, argue that firm disclosure dates prevent developers from sweeping vulnerabilities under the rug, and should strike a balance between the public’s right to know and providing the developer a chance to fix the problem. Many take an even harder stance and propose that immediate public disclosure is the best policy.

Radio head memo

There are two related documents on the course docs tab that you should consult before the assignment Submit only as a Microsoft Word document (It is difficult to provide electronic feedback on a pdf) 1000 words maximum, excluding any headings, footnotes, endnotes, or appendices. Write a memo directly to the band advising them whether they should self-release the album or release on itunes. Your task is to produce a logical/evidence driven projection for each of the proposed methods of release and then communicate those projections to them in an digestible manner by walking them through the logic and argument for each component of the projection. You may also advocate for which method you think is best for them, but that must be based on the projections. The completeness of your argument will be a significant factor in the grading. (Consult argument diagram and checklist handouts on documents tab) The clarity of your argument will also be a significant factor in the grading. This encompasses having a logical structure, writing efficiency, and the degree to which it would be likely to be understood and impact the band if they read it. Topic sentences -headers if used- will be of particular importance to your clarity. Consult the rita feedback packet for information on topic sentences and/or contact me for help. Your introduction paragraph will follow the same guidance as the Rita memo. Every element of your argument should be supported by strong reasoning and/or factual evidence (that is in part what makes for a complete argument). You may include information found outside of the case, but only if it is fairly basic/readily available/widely known. You should not engage in substantial outside research. The case is far richer in detail than it seems at first glance and it is quite possible to make a complete argument while relying exclusively on information found in the case combined with information you can derive from the information found in the case (that last part is a very important component of developing strong problem solving skills). How you structure the memo is a key component of its clarity. Remember we are making this a hypothetical scenario for the purpose of making the argument manageable in the 1000 word count. The hypothetical is as follows: The only distribution methods are the two above: signing with a label under the standard terms for one album and selling via iTunes or selling the album via their own website There is only digital sales in the form of full albums, no physical sales and no singles. You may treat any data on singles from the case as 1/10th of an album. The self-release plan would be permanent, meaning not a temporary period of the first 6 or so weeks as the case mentions. The service fee on the self release method goes to the band

Ancient Methone (Pieria) was a major port in northern Greece from the 1st millennium. Until Philip II of Macedon destroyed the city in 35a. Excavations carried out since 2003 by the Greek Archaeological Service have unearthed Bronze Age burials, important Early Iron Age deposits and inscrip-tions, and direct evidence of the Macedonian siege, destruction, and aftermath, thereby extending the history of the settlement from the Late Neolithic period past the 4th century. In 2012 an international team joined the Ephorate of Antiquities of Pieria to study and publish these discoveries, and as the Ancient Methone Archaeological Project, launched a fresh phase of multidisciplinary eldwork from 2014 to 2017
