Step four: concluding remarks (2 pages)

Purpose of this Assessment
The purpose of the Final Assessment for this competency is to demonstrate awareness of the use of the Scientific Method and discuss a specific biological situation within the context of the subject of biology from a list of potential topics.
Items Required for Submission
The item required for submission is a 7−10 page paper in APA format with the four distinct sections detailed below for any of the topics you select.
Step ONE: Introduction (1−2 pages)
Introduce the topic that you selected. Provide details for how the Scientific Method can help to expand
your understanding of that topic and why you picked that particular topic to research. Step TWO: Context of Biological Kingdom (2−3 pages)
Biology is a BIG subject area (biological kingdom). Your particular topic happens to originate in the biological kingdom somehow. Provide a detailed explanation for that relationship using your new-found knowledge of biology.
Final Assessment: Outline and Rubric 1
Principles and Concepts, Level A Final Assessment: Outline and Rubric Step THREE: Specific Topic Under Discussion (2−3 pages)
As well as possible, discuss the topic that you selected. What appealed to you about the topic? Are there any unusual properties or applications for your topic? Try to connect the topic to the biological content you just finished reviewing in the competency.
Step FOUR: Concluding Remarks (2 pages)
Project ten years into the future. What will conditions be like for the topic you selected then, and what was necessary to accomplish over that time period? If you apply the Scientific Method now to your own work, what might be your next steps in understanding the specific topic more completely? Try to discuss the topic scientifically, and not just from emotions or opinions.
Step FIVE: Complete Checklist for Submission
Before you submit your work, check to see if you have met the criteria noted below. Did you:
● ●
✓ Introduce the topic you selected in the Introduction section in your paper and discuss how the Scientific Method can help to expand the general knowledge that we have on that topic?
✓ Situate your particular biological situation within the overall workings of the Biological Kingdom in the Context section? Is the connection between the two fairly well established?
✓ Provide a full explanation of your particular biological situation and use content from the competency where appropriate in completing the Specific Topic section?
✓ Include a plausible 10-year projection and detail the steps required in the Concluding Remarks section?
✓ Include a description of how to increase understanding of your situation using the Scientific Method?
✓ Demonstrate professional writing and presentation style by:
o Paraphrasing technical language or use quotes and citations, to avoid plagiarism issues? o Proof-reading your paper to ensure accurate spelling, grammar and punctuation?
o Meeting the specified requirements of length and formatting specifications?
o Providing citations using correct APA format if appropriate?
Step SIX: Submit Your Work
Your completed files should be submitted through the Final Assessment page of your competency.
Please note, for files smaller than 10MB (e.g., most Word documents), use the corresponding “+UPLOAD STUDENT FILE” button to upload your Final Assessment documents.

Option 2

In this video, the professor discusses how sometimes what is interesting about a data set is not its average but how much it varies. He compares the weather in New York and San Francisco, which have similar average annual temperatures, even though New York has hot summers and cold winters and San Francisco has similar temperatures year-round. Quartiles as a measure of variation are explored by using the price of food on take-out menus.
Respond to one of the following options in your initial post, citing at least one specific credible source in support. Question on credible sources? See the Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible SourcesLinks to an external site..
Option 1
Other than temperature, state three examples where similar averages are associated with very different distributions.
Go deeper with one, and discuss how that might work in more detail.
Option 2
State one practical use of variation related to health statistics.
Briefly discuss its implications.
Option 3: For many years, the New York subway had no air conditioning on the grounds that the average trip was only 15 minutes, and 15 minutes without air conditioning is no hardship, even in the New York summer.
Critique this reasoning.
Your initial post should be at least 200 words in length.

4) describe at least three potential subjects of negotiations in which a project manager would participate for a project.

Textbook: (H) Successful Project Management Jack Gido, James P. Clements, and Rose Baker, 2018 Cengage ISBN.13: 978-1-337-09547-1 Questions: 1) The project management process involves two major functions: first establishing a plan and then executing that plan to accomplish the project objective. Describe how the project manager can help these two functions be successful. 2) Elaborate on at least three ways to obtain or collect information to further refine the project charter or RFP. 3) Often, the sum of the initial estimated costs is greater than the amount of funds budgeted by the sponsor. What should be done to arrive at an acceptable budget amount? Describe the steps necessary to ensure an acceptable budget amount is present. 4) Describe at least three potential subjects of negotiations in which a project manager would participate for a project.

Confidence Intervals
In everyday terms, a confidence interval is the range of values around a sample statistic (such as mean or proportion) within which clinicians can expect to get the same results if they repeat the study protocol or intervention, including measuring the same outcomes the same ways. As you ask yourself, “Will I get the same results if I use this research?”, you must address the precision of study findings, which is determined by the Confidence Interval. If the CI around the sample statistic is narrow, you can be confident you will get close to the same results if you implement the same research in your practice.
Consider the following example. Suppose that you did a systematic review of studies on the effect of tai chi exercise on sleep quality, and you found that tai chi affected sleep quality in older people. If, according to your study, you found the lower boundary of the CI to be .49, the study statistic to be 0.87, and the upper boundary to be 1.25, this would mean that each end limit is 0.38 from the sample statistic, which is a relatively narrow CI.
(UB + LB)/2 = Statistic [(1.25 + .49)/2 = .87]
Keep in mind that a mean difference of 0 indicates there is no difference; this CI does not contain 0. Therefore, the sample statistic is statistically significant and unlikely to occur by chance.
Because this was a systematic review, and tai chi exercise has been established from the studies you assessed as helping people sleep, based on the sample statistics and the CI, clinicians could now use your study and confidently include tai chi exercises among possible recommendations for patients who have difficulty sleeping.
Now you can apply your knowledge of CIs to create your own studies and make wise decisions about whether to base your patient care on a particular research finding.
Initial Post Instructions

The numbers are not favorable.

review the power point very carefully and then answer the questions please be detailed and provide citation.
Golf Depot is a retail sports store carrying golf apparel and equipment. The store is at the end of its second year of operation and is struggling. A major problem is that its cost of inventory has continually increased in the past two years. In the first year of operations, the store assigned inventory costs using LIFO. A loan agreement the store has with its bank, its prime source of financing, requires the store to maintain a certain profit margin and current ratio. The store’s owner is currently looking over Golf Depot’s preliminary financial statements for its second year. The numbers are not favorable. The only way the store can meet the required financial ratios agreed on with the bank is to change from LIFO to FIFO. The store originally decided on LIFO because of its tax advantages. The owner recalculates ending inventory using FIFO and submits those numbers and statements to the loan officer at the bank for the required bank review. The owner thankfully reflects on the available latitude in choosing the inventory costing method.
Required
How does Golf Depot’s use of FIFO improve its net profit margin and current ratio?
Is the action by Golf Depot’s owner ethical? Explain
