jihad in America

jihad in America

Investigative journalist Steve Emerson originally documented the existence of jihad in America. Then, Brian Jenkins found 46 publicly recorded attacks or attempted attacks from radicalized individuals between 9/11/2001 and December 2009. More recently, Ryan Mauro and the Clarion Project exposed radical Islamic groups inside America. Do you agree or disagree with these findings? If there is a radical Islamic presence inside America, what should be done about radical ideology and by whom? Prior to preparing your answer, you may want to watch “The Third Jihad” linked in the Learn section of this module.

performance evaluation powerpoint

performance evaluation

Imagine you work as an HR professional for the company you selected in the first assignment in Week 3. The company has been having issues with their current performance evaluation process. Some of the issues include the data collection process, proper documentation, and making appropriate decisions on employee performance. Your manager has asked you to evaluate and update their current performance evaluation process and present it as a training module to a group of new supervisors in your organization. Apply the revised or improved evaluation process to the specific job you created in the Week 3 assignment. Note that your manager has asked you to present the new process in the form of a PowerPoint presentation.


Based on what you know about performance evaluations, use the Internet to research and select a performance evaluation tool that you believe is best suited for your company. Create a PowerPoint presentation with speaker’s notes to present this new tool to new supervisors.

Create a PowerPoint presentation to present this new tool to new supervisors. Include the following points:
Explain the benefits of using performance evaluations.
Assess the existing performance evaluation used in the organization.
Create a sample of the performance evaluation tool selected for the company.
Justify the selection of the performance evaluation tool.
Develop a detailed, step-by-step description of the evaluation process.
The PowerPoint presentation should be a minimum of 10 slides with corresponding speaker’s notes, in addition to a title slide and references slide. Include graphics as needed to improve, enhance, or clarify the content.

Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook

Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook


Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook are undoubtedly dominating the world of online social networking, and the willingness of many users to self-disclose personal information ranging from moods to religious affiliation, relationship status, and personal contact information has led to an increase in privacy concerns. They offer convenient opportunities to stay in touch with friends, family, and coworkers, but are people using them responsibly? Some argue that there are fundamental differences between today’s digital natives, whose private and public selves are intertwined through these technologies, and older generations (Kornblum, 2007).

Even though some colleges are offering seminars on managing privacy online, we still hear stories of self-disclosure gone wrong, such as the football player from the University of Texas who was kicked off the team in 2008 for posting racist comments about Barrack Obama after he was elected the President. However, social media experts say cases like this are rare and that most students are aware of who can see what they are posting and the potential consequences (Nealy, 2009). The issue of privacy management on Instagram and Twitter is affecting many relationships including family, friends, and schoolmates, and work colleagues.


For this assignment, address the following using the headings given. Write a paragraph response for each question.

  • Online Management
    • How do you manage your privacy and self-disclosures online?
    • Do you think it is ethical for school officials or potential employers to make admission or hiring decisions based on what they can learn about you online? Why or why not?
  • PowerPoint Process
    • What was helpful to you during the process of organizing the PowerPoint presentation?
    • What did you find constructive in the process of designing the PowerPoint slides?
    • What was instructive regarding the process of taking your notes and turning them into a lesson you taught to the class using the PowerPoint?

mathematical representations of input-output situations

mathematical representations of input-output situations

Initial Post Instructions

In the real world, functions are mathematical representations of input-output situations. A vending machine is one such example. The input is the money combined with the selected button. The output is the product.

Here is another example: The formula for converting a temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius is a function expressed as:

C = (5/9)*(F – 32), where F is the Fahrenheit temperature and C is the Celsius temperature.

If it is 77 degrees Fahrenheit in Phoenix Arizona, then what is the equivalent temperature on the Celsius thermometer?

Our input is 77.

C = (5/9)*(77 – 32)

C = (5/9)*(45)

C = 25

The equivalent temperature is 25 degrees Celsius.

To complete the Discussion activity, please do the following:

Choose your own function or choose from the list below and then provide a unique example of a function and evaluate the function for a specific input (like the example above).

Arm length is a function of height.

The circumference of a circle is a function of diameter.

The height of a tree is a function of its age.

The length of person’s shadow on the ground is a function of his or her height.

Weekly salary is a function of the hourly pay rate and the number of hours worked.

Compound interest is a function of initial investment, interest rate, and time.

Supply and demand: As price goes up, demand goes down.
