What are the main obstacles for the AU in bringing peace and security to Somalia

a) Introduction – 1 page
b) Literature review – 2 page
c) Research design – 3 pages

1) Introduction :- This needs to be clear and concise with your central and relatively narrow focus brought upfront, ideally putting the basic elements of your research questions into the first paragraph or even the first sentence. The introduction contains the question, and its relevance.
2) Literature review: What we expect you to use literature from the other two modules whenever relevant in helping you to understand two things: a) what research has already been conducted that is relevant to your research question; and b) how it has been conducted. That is, how did scholars go out into the world and produce this knowledge.
3) Research design:- Here, you must refer back to the literature review and conduct your own plan of how to go out and conduct research that helps answer your research question. You need to be able to argue the relevance of your research design, both in terms of the research question, and be reflexive on how it produces valid and coherent knowledge. In particular, state and justify your data collection method.

 
 

NB: yo are not expected to conduct the research here, but write it as if you would so that it is convincing research design.

1) Make sure you referencing fits with the format as outlined in the expanded syllabus. This will affect your grade, since it relates to the overall professionalism of the text.

2) Remember that the assignment is a research design and not an actual essay. Read through the guidance in the syllabus, as well as the examples of previous assignments, if you’re not sure.

3) In professional writing, avoid colloquial abbrevations like ‘you’re’, ‘don’t’, ‘couldn’t’, and so on. These are for more conversational forms of writing, like this email.

4) This is an IR assignment, meaning that you need to frame your topic in terms of its relevance to IR (International Relations).

 
 

Briefly explain one of the civil liberties protected in the Bill of Rights (examples include speech, press, religion, double jeopardy, etc.).

Choose ONE of the options below for your post: remember to use and cite solid academic sources in making your points, using both parenthetical in-text citations and full citations at the end of the post.

Option #1) Civil Liberties: Follow These Steps in Creating Your Post:

1) Briefly explain one of the civil liberties protected in the Bill of Rights (examples include speech, press, religion, double jeopardy, etc.).

2) Explain one way in which the government may legally restrict this liberty

3) Explain whether or not you agree with government being able to restrict this liberty and why (or why not).

Option #2) Equal Rights: Follow This Step in Creating Your Post:

1) Conflicts between police and minority communities have been major items in the news the past couple of years. Find and use evidence from solid academic sources to explain whether these have been isolated incidents in a system that is fair overall, or whether there is pervasive systemic racism in the American criminal justice system.

For full credit, respond to another student’s post. Your response should be more than just opinion – use and cite solid academic sources to deepen and extend the discussion.

Please treat this like a mini research paper and pay attention to spelling, grammar, flow, citation of sources, etc. Since this discussion requires more research and use of solid academic sources, it will be weighted more heavily in the final grade than the first discussion

Suppose that Ralph Skelton places an order to buy 100 shares of Google. Explain how the order will be processed if it’s a market order. Would it make any difference if it had been a limit order? Explain.

The Method of Markers with people you know

test out The Method of Markers with people you know. Make sure that you explain the procedure to the players before you try out the method. Maybe even let them do a trial run. Please include a photo to document your experiment. Tell us about the experience.

Did all of the people believe that they received a fair division of the goods? If not, explain why.

Create a Excel Spreadsheet representing the change model that you are implementing ( LPC Contigency Model) Theory by Feilder-make sure to create a comparative demonstrating showing the old model against your new change plan

Create a Excel Spreadsheet representing the change model that you are implementing ( LPC Contigency Model) Theory by Feilder-make sure to create a comparative demonstrating showing the old model against your new change plan. *******Create an excel spreadsheet under the following headers please describe (WHO, WHEN, DEFINITION, CHARACTERISTICS, STRENGHTS, CONCEPTUAL, WEAKNESSES), for the LPC Contingency Model
Example: If you have chosen to use Fiedler’s Contingency Model as the change model to utilize with your project, your spreadsheet will reflect how your will create organization change based upon the model’s situational leadership style and situational favorableness.

Do we have a free press

Papers should be 3 pages, double-spaced (11 or 12 pt font) in length. Structure them thusly:

1.    What for you were the most important points that you took from the readings, discussion and lecture material for the week? This is an exercise in abstract thinking—what is the ‘big picture?’ You should touch on each reading assignment, discuss any common threads between them, or differences. I want to see what you got out of the readings and the week’s topic, and gauge your depth of understanding. I’m not looking for book reports here—do some summary, but your paper should be no more than 1/3 summary (and no less than 2/3 analysis).

 
 

2.    Demonstrate you read the discussion board. I don’t need a play-by-play blow of people’s postings, I just want you to demonstrate you went through the postings, and got something out of the process. How did people respond to the material for the week? What was your take? Just keep in mind—take a stand, but don’t make points if you’re not going to support them with evidence or logic.
3.    Standards. This is making up for your having missed the discussion boards, so I expect the same amount of intellectual effort to go into the make-up. Good writing, use of complete sentences, paragraphs to change ideas, citing of authors’ works at the end. Demonstrate you’ve been through all of the readings and lecture material.

WileyPLUS® iProfile®

Record food intake and activities performed for three days. The iProfile® will be utilized to analyze the 3-day Food Intake Record. The Activities data will be analyzed during Week 4.
Enter your food intake for three full days using the food journal within iProfile®.
Follow the WileyPLUS® iProfile® instructions. Save this information.
Access the Intake Spreadsheet within the reports menu. Select start and end dates in the calendar at the top of the screen. The intake spreadsheet will calculate and display the average for the three days. Attach a screenshot of your report or export the report using Excel or PDF.
Write a paper of at least 750 words that addresses the following points about your 3-day food intake:
Recorded intake of protein, carbohydrates, and lipids
Which foods in your recorded daily intake provide protein? Which provide carbohydrates? Which provide lipids?
Review how your recorded protein, carbohydrate, and lipid intake compares with the recommendations of the dietary reference intake. If your recorded protein-carbohydrate-fat intake was too high or too low, which foods might you add or remove to achieve your goal and keep other nutrients in balance?
Is the protein in each food you ate complete or incomplete, combining to become complementary? Why is this important?
How much of your daily recommended protein, carbohydrates, and lipid intake did you achieve? If your macronutrient intake is insufficient or excessive, what might you do to bring it into the recommended range? Provide specific recommendations.
Macronutrient intake ranges
Is macronutrient intake within the recommended range important? What are the effects of too much or too little of a macronutrient? What happens if you consistently eat too little protein? What happens if you eat too few carbohydrates? What happens if you eat too few lipids?
Fiber intake ranges
Does your fiber total meet 100% of the recommendation for you as calculated at iProfile®?
Does your diet meet the minimum number of servings of foods from each fiber-containing group? If not, which of the fiber-containing groups–fruits and vegetables–fell short of the recommended intake?
Which specific foods provide the most fiber in your meals? Which provide the least? Identify trends in your food choices that might affect your fiber intakes.
Dietary modifications
What changes might you make to increase the fiber in your diet?
How might insufficient or excessive amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, or fiber contribute to health or illness? Provide examples.
What have you learned about your diet?
Cite three references other than the course text.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
Include an explanation on the links between theory and relevant examples.
