In a democratic society, our elected representatives have a duty to listen to their constituents’ opinions

In a democratic society, our elected representatives have a duty to listen to their constituents’ opinions. One of the most effective ways to make your opinion heard is to write a letter. A typed or hand-written letter carries the most weight with any recipient, more than an email or signing a petition.
Students in this class have a powerful voice in the issue of climate change. This is due, in part, to the following reasons:
After completing the previous lesson plans on climate change science and policy you know more about the issue than most people.
Your knowledge of the issue will allow you to write a well-informed and persuasive letter.
You are young, and climate mitigation decisions being made right now will affect the rest of your life.
You are able to vote. Decision makers know the millennial youth are developing a strong voice and are becoming involved in civic life more than the generations before them.
In international climate negotiations, your voice can make a difference at many different locations in the government. For example:
The President sets the general course.
The State Department and its Special Envoy for Climate Change take a leadership role in the negotiations.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee reviews any potential treaties.
Congress must ratify any treaties before they become law.
START By Finding out who you want to address the letter to, find the contact information for your local Senator or Congress person.
Or if you prefer you may address your letter to:
The President of the United States, and ultimately might be the most important office to communicate with.
The address is:
The President of the United States of America
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, DC 20500

To complete this assignment:
Review their journals from the previous lessons.
Read the below instructions on: Crafting a Position Statement
Identify the issues and ideas about which they feel most strongly.
Choose from two issues: NEW TECHNOLOGIES or CARBON TAX
Decide on an appropriate recipient for the letter.
Craft a position statement letter.
Students will submit the letters online to receive credit for the assignment. (the opinions expressed are not the subject of grading—each student is entitled to his or her own opinion).
Students can choose to address their letters and mail them. (OPTIONAL)
How should decision makers approach the issue of climate change? This is your chance to weigh in. Decide whom you would like to address.
The following tips will help you write a powerful letter to a decision maker:
Keep it short. Limit your letter to one page and one issue.
Identify yourself and the issue ( NEW TECHNOLOGIES or CARBON TAX) . In the first paragraph of your letter state who you are and what issue you are writing about.
Focus on your main points. Choose the three strongest points to support your argument and develop them clearly. Too much information can distract from your position.
Make it personal. Tell your decision maker why the issue matters to you and how it affects you, your family, and your community. Make a connection to the elected official. Did you vote for him or her? Did you contribute to the campaign?
Ask for a reply. Include your name and address on your letter. Trust your voice. Be polite and take a firm position in your letter. Be confident in your understanding of the issue and remember that the official may know less than you. Thank elected officials when they make a decision the way you want.
Your position can be based on personal opinion, but it must be supported with specific evidence and examples. Use at least three pieces of supporting evidence for each point. This indicates you have a good understanding of the topic. It also makes a case for why your position is valid.
Before starting to write, review your notes. Decide on a focus for your letter. Pick your top three points. Make an outline of your letter. Decide which three supporting statements you will use for each.
While giving your group members feedback on their letters, focus on how they can make their letter stronger (for example, by better organization, stronger examples, fewer run-on sentences, including more of a personal connection, etc.). This is not a time to criticize your classmates’ opinions. Every person is entitled to his or her own opinions about how society should respond to climate change

China-kenya economic cooperation

This is a paper I’m going to defend, so it needs more clarification than one I would hand in.

The main problem I have with this paper is that the previous writer just copied from other papers.

1. It was mostly text and not structured text. I feel most comfortable when subtitles (like 5.0) have main points (like (5.1, 5.2, etc) cause it makes the paper concise and not too wordy


2. the main question that will be answered in the conclusion at the end of the thesis and then the same conclusion should support my opinion on the china-kenya economic cooperation (I’m not really a fan of it, I’ll have a problem defending it otherwise.)
Must have points of the thesis, introduction aside: (you can add extra points you deem important but remember I cannot exceed 8000 words, I prefer a maximum of 6500-7000, minimum must be 6000)

In the main body there MUST be these points (instructions from the supervisor). If you can find more fitting ones, you can add them but these ones must be a part of the thesis.

I. Introduction
1. Nature of the study
2. Problem statement and Research question
3. Objectives
4. Methodology
5. Data collection


II. Overview of the Chinese economic presence in Kenya
1. Aid
2. Trade
3. Investment

III. Analysis of the interactive relations between trade, investment and aid
1. Aid-Investment
2. Investment-Trade
3. Trade-Aid

IV. Evaluation of the effect of Chinese economic presence in Kenya (using aid, trade and investment)
1. Positive effects (quote Dambisa Moyo’s point as a passage in this subtitle, not a subhead)
2. Negative effects

V. In the conclusion
(there should be these following points)
1. Briefly compare west-kenya vs china-kenya economic cooperation?
2. What is the importance, relevance and significance of this study?
3. Policy paper implications and theory.
3.1. Domestic market
3.2. Regional integration
3.3. International trade
4. What the research brings to the table in terms of this question (the research question that has to be in the introduction)
5. Policy recommendations

They are going to need like an analysis of the figures and tables plus the formulas. And from the text around them, it’s not clear.
all the abbreviations should be listed
references and footnotes

Strategic Analysis: Organizational & Competitive

The goal of conducting a competitor analysis is to gather information about the company’s competitors and systematically formulate a strategy to become the market leader in the industry. In formulating any strategy, it is imperative that the company understand its organizational structure as well as the internal and external forces which could impact their strategic decisions.


Based on the company you chose in the previous module, analyze the organization’s mission, vision, and values, its ability to compete, and the effectiveness of its management team in executing strategy. Some of the factors to be considered in doing this evaluation include the company’s internal resource capabilities, its relative cost position, and its competitive strength. In addition, evaluate the competitive strategy of your selected organization and examine how this strategic approach drives the rest of the strategic actions the company undertakes in terms of product line, production emphasis, marketing emphasis, and the means for sustaining the strategy. Make sure to include at least one analytical tool such as SWOT analysis, Porter’s, BCG, etc. in your analysis.


Research your selected organization’s strategy and analyze the following elements:


  • The organization’s mission, vision, and values. What does it tell you about the company, their culture, their direction? Does it convey the purpose and primary objectives of the company? If so, how, if not what is missing?
  • The organization’s strategic goals. Based on your research, what are the top three strategic goals of your chosen company?
  • The relative alignment of strategic goals with the organization’s mission, vision, and values. Include at least three examples of how the strategic goals help and/or hinder the organization in achieving its mission, vision, and values.
  • Additions or changes you would recommend to the strategic goals to better achieve the company’s mission, vision, and values. Include at least two additions or changes and justify your response.
  • Describe the relevant external factors and influences (at least 3) which could affect the decisions the company makes about its direction, objectives, strategy, and business model.
  • Describe the Internal factors and influences (at least 3) which could impact the company’s decision making such as the company’s market position and its competencies, capabilities, resource strengths and weaknesses, and competitiveness.
  • Does your selected organization have a focused strategy that differentiates it from other companies in the same marketplace? Explain your answer.
  • Is the organization seeking a competitive advantage by taking the initiative in the marketplace? Explain your answer.
  • Does the organization have a strategy for competing in international markets? Does it appear to have a solid understanding of local customer needs and preferences to create customized products or services? Does it appear to know how to transfer company expertise to initiate actions to compete internationally?
  • Make sure you utilize at least one analytical tool in your analysis of this section.

Write up your findings in a 6 to 8 page MS Word format paper which complies with APA standards, including proper grammar and spelling. Include at least three scholarly resources in your report.
