The success of any supply chain depends on the framework of the organization

The success of any supply chain depends on the framework of the organization. The framework of an organization identifies strategic challenges that were critical to the organization’s existence in the past and are also critical to its future growth. In this assignment, you will examine the ways in which selection of a framework can affect the success or failure of the supply chain program.
Most organizations use a single framework or a combination of frameworks to develop supply chains.
Use online library resources and the Internet, research frameworks for developing supply chains.
Then respond to the following:
What is a supply chain? What are some potential benefits of managing the supply chain?
What are the key factors that help an organization decide what type of framework they should use to develop the supply chain?
What would be the impact on the development process if an incorrect framework is used? Discuss your reasoning by providing examples.
Describe the three types of value (supply) chain frameworks and explain which one you think is the best. If possible provide a visual illustration or representation. Why do think your chosen framework is best? Justify your explanation.

After your initial post, discuss the following:
What are the strategic, tactical, and operations issues in supply chain management?
What is the bullwhip effect, and why does it occur? How can it be overcome?
What impact has eBusiness had on supply chain management?

Write your initial response in 200 to 300 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Civil War Paper and Presentation

Over 600,000 Americans lost their lives in the Civil War, with the Northern troops suffering higher losses. The North believed the sacrifice was worth it: The slaves were freed and the Union was preserved. The people of the South, on the other hand, began almost immediately to glorify the “lost cause.” Their generals became mythic heroes and they looked wistfully back at the antebellum period. They almost regretted surrendering.


Historian Shelby Foote said,

Any understanding of this nation has to be based . . . on an understanding of the Civil War. . . . The Civil War defined us as what we are, and it opened us to being what we became, good and bad things. It is very necessary if you’re going to understand the American character in the 20th century to learn about this enormous catastrophe of the mid-19th century. It was the crossroads of our being.


Burns, K. & Burns, R. (Writers). (1990). Episode 1: The cause (1861). In K. Burns (Producer), The Civil War. Arlington, VA: Public Broadcasting Service.

Part 1:  Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper in which you answer the following questions:

·        What do you think Foote meant in the passage quoted above?  How does the Civil War define the United States?

·        If the Southern generals like Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson were so brilliant, and if the South lost fewer men than the North, why did the North win?

See Assignment Notes #1 and #2 at the end of this syllabus for information about assignment formatting and acceptable sources.

Part 2:  Create a 3- to 5-slide presentation, using Microsoft® PowerPoint® or another multimedia tool with speaker notes, to provide a visual tour of one major battlefield of the Civil War.

·        Include photographs from the University Library, quotes, numbers of dead and wounded, and the significance of the battle.


Consider how the resources this week have increased your understanding of influences that contribute to differences among adult learners

Consider how the resources this week have increased your understanding of influences that contribute to differences among adult learners. By anticipating the mix of experiences, attitudes, and abilities you will likely find among the adults with whom you work, you will be better prepared to provide each learner with the appropriate support to encourage maximum success.

Educating diverse groups of adult learners is no easy task. As Stephen Brookfield (2006) states in his chapter on the emotions of learning, “Developing understanding, assimilating knowledge, acquiring skills, exploring new perspectives, and thinking critically are activities that prompt strong feelings” (p. 75). That applies to adult learners and to you as an adult educator. Be aware of your own experiences, attitudes, and expectations that might cloud your judgment about individual students, and draw on knowledge and strategies to help you make accurate and informed responses to any “diversity scenarios.”

Test yourself with the four scenarios that follow. Read each and reflect on your understanding of the situation and the adult learners involved. Consider information from the Resources this week that provide guidance for responding most appropriately to each scenario.

Educator A: In a community college classroom, a student stands out to you, even though he seems to be doing his utmost to be inconspicuous. He never volunteers an answer, and when you call on him, he mumbles his response. He speaks in a deeply accented voice and although you have some difficulty catching his every word, what you understand indicates he is thinking critically about the course content. That impression is confirmed by his first written assignment. You wonder about his potential, what may be influencing his classroom demeanor, and how best to support him.

Educator B: You are leading a 2-day orientation of new caseworkers in child protective services from across a wide region. As the associates enter the room, you see two women in wheelchairs among the group. You plan to cover requirements as well as “do’s and don’ts” of home visits. You wonder about the women’s physical limitations and if all of the material you have planned is appropriate for them. You are also concerned about whether you, the women, and/or other members of the group will feel self-conscious when you discuss aspects of the job that involve/require mobility.

Educator C: A school district has hired you for three professional development sessions with primary-grade teachers on integrating algebra and algebraic principles into primary-grade math curriculum. Attendance is mandatory for the teachers. You begin by asking the group to share their experiences with math and algebra. You get a smattering of responses—from those who loved it in school, to those who can’t see how it is relevant for young students, to a brave soul who admits to never taking algebra and being fearful of how she will teach it. You realize there is greater range of knowledge and comfort with algebra than you expected, and you wonder how best to work with a group that is so diverse in their math backgrounds and attitudes toward teaching algebra in the early grades.

Educator D: You are reviewing evaluations from a presentation to early childhood educators on developmentally appropriate practice at a small regional conference. You followed your preferred format: using a PowerPoint presentation as a visual, discussing key points, and providing copies of the presentation as a handout. Many evaluations are positive and mention the value of the PowerPoint as a reference. However, there are a number of complaints along the lines of “too much talk. I was expecting more than a lecture.” One comment in particular strikes you: “I’m like the children I work with—I learn best by doing! I’m disappointed there was no chance to try out ideas.” You wonder how much importance to give those criticisms and how you might accommodate differences among your audience in the future.
Choose one scenario to respond to in your Discussion post. Select the scenario that is most relevant to you and your work as an adult educator. Take the role of Educator A, B, C, or D, and then draw on advice, insights, and strategies from the Resources this week to develop your explanation.

By Wednesday:

Post your response to the diversity scenario of your choice. Identify your role as Educator A, B, C, or D and provide the following in your explanation:
Your analysis of the scenario
How you would respond as the adult educator in this situation
One or more strategies that would provide information and/or guidance in this situation
Any assumptions or misconceptions involved in the situation and how to correct them
Include references or examples from this week’s Learning Resources to support your ideas.

The Ethics of Stem Cell Use and Its Future in Healthcare

The purpose of this paper is to explore a controversial healthcare issue substantially. The paper should include an introduction, a discussion of the issue including important healthcare ethical concepts involved, a description of AT LEAST two points of view (however if you can incorporate more it might strengthen the paper), the justified opinion of the author, and a conclusion.

AT LEAST SIX professional references are required and should be cited in APA.


The paper should be more than 3,000 words but can be up to as much as 6,000. WORDS DO NOT INCLUDE REFERENCES AND CITATIONS.

The paper must include a cover sheet, table of contents, and the reference page with cited sources.

I personally am requesting an author that will be okay with arguing FOR stem cell use. Author must also not have more than 5 other orders in progress while working on this essay. Authors with more than 5 orders will not be considered due to the possibility of a lack of attention to detail of this paper or the possibility of a “rushed” finish.

Deadline for this essay is Apr 10th at noon. However, author’s obligations will not be over at the deadline. For example, if the professor asks for more information or a rewrite of a section, the writer must accomplish this for final payment to be distributed.

If you managed to read this far, I have no doubt that you are definitely a good candidate to help me write this paper
