General psychology | Applied Sciences homework help

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2019, a new strain of the coronavirus disease was discovered. Also known as COVID-19, this strain of the virus had previously not been identified in humans. A worldwide pandemic ensued as the virus quickly spread across the globe, impacting countless lives, including many individuals in the United States. 

In an effort to contain the virus, numerous countries’ leaders encouraged social distancing, which is an infection control strategy aimed to help lessen the spread of a contagious disease. This directive was given by leaders in the United States as well. Two schools of thought emerged. In fact, many people were skeptical about the authenticity of this pandemic due to perplexing and often conflicting messages that were received across social media and news outlets. Therefore, numerous Americans assumed business as usual and maintained their daily living and social rituals. On the other hand, scores of others quickly retreated to their homes, embracing the warning provided by some of the nation’s top infectious disease experts. 

This assignment provides you with an opportunity to analyze a real-world, peer-reviewed, psychology journal article that contains research examining the social psychology aspects of motivation and emotion. You will then demonstrate your understanding of the article by relating the research and conclusions contained therein to current events.

Begin by visiting the CSU Online Library to locate and choose a journal article in which motivation and emotion are viewed under the lens of social psychology. The article must be peer-reviewed and should be no older than 7 years.

NOTE: You are not required to locate an article about COVID-19; instead, you must find a peer-reviewed journal article concerning research that specifically examines motivation and emotion. You will then be critiquing the article and framing the research and conclusions presented in the article in the context of how they can be applied to behavior and social psychology during such an event as the COVID-19 pandemic.

A good place to start your search is the PsycARTICLES database or the Academic Search Ultimate database. You can access these databases from the Databases box on the library homepage. 

For assistance in locating your article, you may find the following  tutorial How to Find Journal Articles helpful. Additionally, you may find this tutorial How to Search in PsycARTICLES useful. 

Once you have chosen your article about motivation, emotion, and social psychology, you will write an article critique that addresses the following elements.

  • Explain the research methodology that was used in the study.
  • Discuss social factors that influence people or groups to conform to the actions of others.
  • Indicate how behaviors and motivation are impacted by the presence of others. (How does this apply to COVID-19?)
  • Indicate the structures of the brain that are involved in emotion and motivation. (How could a person’s emotions related to fear drive their behaviors during this pandemic?)
  • Examine the article’s generalizability to various areas of psychology.
  • Why would some people choose to follow the orders to avoid social contact and others allow desire for human interaction to be their driving force?

In addition, your article critique should clearly identify the article’s premise and present an insightful and thorough analysis with strong arguments and evidence. You should present your own informed and substantiated opinion on the article’s content and its relation to social psychology during the COVID-19 pandemic. You should use the textbook as your second source to support your analysis and to supplement any information that is not contained in the journal article.

Your article critique must be a minimum of three pages in length, not including the title and reference pages. All sources used must be properly cited. Your article critique, including all references, must be formatted in APA style.

You may view the following CSU Writing Center tutorial Article Critiques for assistance in writing an article critique.

SCENARIO RESEARCH PAPER PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS

In this assignment you will find yourself in various countries as a criminal!  In the scenario and analysis you create you will truly be an international criminal.  The “crime” committed can be of your choosing is long as it is illegal in the country we are studying.  You will find that this very deep dive into the criminal justice systems of each country we study will help you become a world criminal justice system expert.  

The following is your prompt for the setting of your paper:

1) You are a US Citizen that is travelling to the country we are studying

2) You arrive at the country

3) You commit a crime

a. Make the crime interesting enough to write about

b. Make the crime of a nature that you will work through the country’s criminal justice system

c. Do not get caught up in the detail of the crime at the expense of the analysis – this will lead to failure of the assignment!  

4) You are caught by the country’s law enforcement officers

5) You do not have diplomatic immunity and the country is balking at any means of negotiation with the US for your release from the crime and subsequent punishment

The following is an outline of what you should cover in your paper: 

1) Begin your paper with a brief analysis of the following elements:

a. Country analysis

i. Introduction to the country

ii. People and society of the country

iii. Economy

iv. Transnational issues (if applicable) that may impact law enforcement

v. Relations with the United States

b. What is the basic government structure and its relationship to the criminal justice system

c. What is the “legal family” or basis of law in the country 

d. What are the major components of the criminal justice system in the country

2) Please explain the following elements:

b. The human rights perspective of how you were treated through the lens of the country where you were caught

c. A Holy Bible comparison/analysis of the criminal justice system of the country where you were caught   

Each research paper should be a minimum of 8 to 12 pages.  The vast difference in page count is due to the fact that some countries are quite easy to study and some countries have very limited information.  In some instances there will be a plethora of information and you must use skilled writing to maintain proper page count.  Please keep in mind that this is doctoral level analysis and writing – you are to take the hard-earned road – the road less travelled – the scholarly road in forming your paper.

The paper must use current APA style, and the page count does not include the title page, abstract, reference section, or any extra material. The minimum elements of the paper are listed above.

You must use the following sources:

At least 8 recent, peer reviewed sources: some countries may have more recent research articles than others

2 verses/citations from the Holy Bible

1 newspaper article

Books may be used but are considered “additional: sources beyond the stated minimums.  

You may use .gov sources as your recent, relevant, and academic sources as long as the writing is academic in nature (authored works).  

Again, this paper must reflect graduate level research and writing style.  If you need to go over the maximum page count you must obtain professor permission in advance!  Please reference the Research Paper Rubric when creating your research paper.

Competing in the Global and Domestic Marketplace

There are numerous considerations that companies face when they market their brands globally. Advances in communication, transportation, and other technologies have made the world a much smaller place. Today, almost every firm, large or small, faces international marketing issues. All will have to answer some basic questions when considering globalization; what market position should we try to establish in our country, in our region, and globally? Who will our global competitors be and what are their strategies and resources?  Where should we produce or source our products? What alliances should we form with other firms around the world?

In addition to these considerations, and in our data driven business environment, importance is placed on how companies develop and manage information about important market­place elements.  Marketing research initiatives are designed to assess the firm’s marketing information needs, develop the needed information, and help managers to use the information to gain actionable customer and market insights. Simply put, marketers need limited amounts of the right data at any given time to make these decisions.

Mary Kay: Building a Brand in India

This case describes the market entry into India by Mary Kay, Inc.  At the time of the case, Mary Kay, Inc. was one of the largest direct sellers of skin care and color cosmetics in the world.  The company’s brands are sold in more than 35 markets on five continents.

The video supplement provides you with an opportunity to explore different aspects of its global operations in the context of the entry into India.  Specifically, you are asked to: (1) define what type of global company it is; (2) describe the global market-entry strategy used by the company to enter India; and (3) decide whether or not Mary Kay is a global brand.

This case addresses global marketing organizations, global market entry strategies, and global branding. You should consider the company’s expansion plans not only into India, but the entire region of Asia and other international markets.

Your response should integrate external resources, which should be consistent with APA writing style and format (7th edition) and reflect higher level cognitive processing (analysis, synthesis and or evaluation).  

  

From the Teacher:

Consumer markets are incredibly diverse; often mere segmentation is not definitive enough to effectively gain market share or to serve a market completely.  The United States, or North America for that matter, is difficult to define; the European market, with the many diverse cultures making up any country’s resident profiles is even more complex. Other markets are becoming increasingly challenging and complex.

Cultural values are of utmost importance (different from customer value), as they define the boundaries or norms as to what is desirable.

There are key questions that companies must ask when considering a foreign market:

1) Is the geographic area homogeneous or heterogeneous regarding culture? (it’s often a question of how heterogeneous the particular culture is; very rarely is there a homogeneous culture).

2) What needs does this product fill in this culture?

3) Can enough people afford the product?

4) What values are relevant to the purchase and use of the product

5) What are the distribution, political and legal structures for the product  (this is often a very challenging analysis)

6) How can the product be communicated?

7) What are the ethical implications for marketing the product in a particular country?

Consider these aspects as you address the discussion question and your proposed strategies.

Critical analysis of amazon | Management homework help

I need help carrying out a critical Internal and external analysis of Amazon.

 

Critical Internal Analysis: For an internal analysis, I need help in utilizing two main tools: SWOT and Value Chain Analysis. This section should examine Amazon’s internal environment to assess its resources, competencies and competitive advantage. The analysis should include be based on the “after” covid period, i.e. from the current state of the company. Basically an analysis of how Covid has affected the company using SWOT and Value Chain analysis.

Critical External Analysis: To examine the opportunities and threats in the business environment, a critical external analysis should be performed. It should be divided into 2 sections. Each of these sections would utilize a different strategic tool.

Macro-environment: Using DESTEP, the six components of the macro-environment would be thoroughly analyzed in relation to Amazon. These components

are:

• Demographic forces

• Economic forces

• Socio-cultural forces

• Technological forces

• Ecological forces

• Political forces

Industry analysis: For a complete industry analysis, Porter’s Five forces model

would be utilized. This model would include:

• Competition in the industry

• Potential of new entrants into the industry

• Power of suppliers

• Power of customers

• Threat of substitute products

Again this analysis should show how Covid has impacted the company. 

I would like the sources properly cited with a reference page and want as many references as possible (>30 – 50 if possible).
