Analyzing Fiction- How to Tell a True War Story

The is what I submitted for my draft. It needs to be 3 pages finished. You can add to or re-write this. Shorty Story is “How to Tell a Ture War Story” O’Brien

Unfortunately True

“How to Tell a True War Story” by Tim O’Brien seeks to explain the psychological effects of war on Vietnam soldiers. Through his narrative story telling, O’Brien states that in order for a war story to be true it must not be moral or make you feel uplifted. There is no happy ending in war. He suggests “If you don’t care for obscenity, you don’t care for the truth; if you don’t care for the truth, watch how you vote. Send guys to war, the come home talking dirty.” [introduce body paragraphs]
The story starts out with Rat writing a letter to the sister of his killed buddy. He writes, “Rat almost bawls writing it.”. He does not receive a letter and O’Brien goes on to say “He’s nineteen years old – its too much for him- so he looks at you with those big killer eyes and says cooze, because his friend is dead, and because it’s so incredibly sad and true: she never wrote back.” O’Brien is displaying that Rat, barley an adult is unable to cope with the tragedy of losing his best friend.
The rambling tone of the story seems to suggest that Sanders, the narrator, is emotionally detached from the story. He tells it with a flattened affect. “He was playing catch with Rat Kiley, laughing, and then he was dead.” He repeats how Curt Lemon died many times throughout the story, his flashbacks to the event. The story is told as if he can not get it out of his head.
When O’Brien writes of Rat shooting the baby water buffalo, “It wasn’t to kill; it was just to hurt.”. Then Rat Kiley went off crying. [add more here]

O’Brien explains the effects of the war as “a great ghostly fog, thick and permanent”. He is continually stressing how true war stories are so traumatic they can not be believed and how truth is often mixed with untruth. [add more here]

Evaluate a public health response to a disease within a population

Professional Competency Outcome PC-4.1: Assess the value of multiculturalism and diversity in a global environment. Instructions There are many diseases affecting populations around the globe that include a cultural component as to how they are perceived, treated or cured, and who should be involved when addressing illness. For instance, during the large-scale Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2015, there were several cultural practices that perpetuated the transmission of disease and hindered containment efforts. Health and medical professionals must respond to these ‘public health emergencies’ quickly, but must take into consideration how the affected population will react to the response, including cultural beliefs that may contribute to the continued spread of these infections. After reviewing the Unit 8 Readings, choose either the 2014-15 Ebola outbreak in West Africa or a specific population affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic as the topic for your paper, and write a minimum 500 word expository essay that addresses the following:

  • Provide a brief description of the chosen outbreak.
  • What organizations were/are responsible for responding to the chosen public health emergency?
  • How did these organizations address cultural practices that may have contributed to the spread of disease?
  • Was importance placed on how the disease was perceived, treated, and who needed to be involved (traditional healers, religious healers, etc.) in the response?
  • In your opinion, how successful were the organizations in trying to change cultural beliefs to prevent the spread of disease? Explain.

  • The paper should be at least 500 words in length.
  • There should be a minimum of three credible references used, including the source for your chosen organization, which should be presented in APA format.

The Role of Boundaries

Boundaries are an important feature of any organization. The nature of these boundaries has undergone considerable change over time. For many organizations today, what is inside or outside the boundaries is less clear and the ease of flow of information across boundaries has greatly increased. Boundaries can exist between individuals, between teams, between organizations, or even between an organization and its social environment (e.g., city, community, etc.).
• Discuss your current organization or a previous organization in terms of boundaries. How did these boundaries affect you as an employee? Reflect on your mental construct of boundaries.
• Explain what roles boundaries play and why these are important to organizations.
• How permeable are your boundaries both personally and for your team?
• Examine what determines how much rigidity and permeability is required by an organization and the teams in an organization.
• Assess the benefits for many organizations to be less rigid and more permeable than previously.
The final paragraph of your post (3 to 4 sentences) should summarize the one or two main points that you are attempting to make in your post.
Provide a substantive discussion post addressing each of the components as prompted. Justify your answers with examples, reasoning, and research.

POTBELLY

Case 2 requires analyzing the internal environment as well as the external environment, as covered in Case 1 and in Chapter 3. The internal environment analysis is covered in Chapter 4. You should draw heavily from the material in Chapter 4 in preparing your case. You may choose to analyze the internal environment using Michael Porter’s Value Chain approach or Jay Barney’s Resource Based View of the Firm (RBV). Porter’s approach sees the firm as a collection of activities; Barney sees the firm as a collection of resources. Both believe that the firm uses either activities or resources to build competitive advantage. Hence, the internal focus.

For the case study, you will write a report to the CEO Alan Johnson about your analysis of the industry, the macro-environment and the strengths and weaknesses of Potbelly. The problem statement is about the most significant problem facing the company; that problem could be based on external factors or internal factors – or both.

The analysis section is about the external and the internal environment. External factors are termed Opportunities and Threats, such as the Threat of Substitutes. (Yes, something can be both an opportunity and a threat – much as the growth of Internet retail is both an opportunity and a threat for a retailer.) Opportunities and Threats are factors that affect the entire industry, maybe even the entire marketplace. If an Opportunity or a Threat is company-specific, then it is not an external factor; it is an internal factor.

Internal factors are Strengths and Weaknesses. Be sure to read Chapter 4 to learn more about internal analysis, using either a resource based view, a value chain view or a competence perspective – or all three. Although you should include some reference to key financial aspects of the firm, no significant analysis of the financial aspects of the firm are needed until Case 3.

Based on your analysis, you recommend to the CEO what Potbelly should do strategically. And support your strategic recommendation. Why is it the best solution to the significant problem you have identified? You might also consider: Does the new strategy make sense? Does the focus seem correct? Is the CEO zeroing in on the right issues, in your judgment? Why or why not?

Your recommendation should have as foundation at least 1-5 internal factors and at least 1 -5 external factors. You can mix and match – what strengths should the company use to take advantage of an opportunity; or what opportunity should the company take to solve one of its weaknesses. What strengths could the company use to mitigate a threat; or what weaknesses must the company address so they do not fall victim to the treats facing the industry. Yes – this is a SWOT analysis. And the true payoff of SWOT analysis is learning enough to develop a strong strategic approach to gaining competitive advantage.

Please see the three files for instructions regarding Case Studies in this class. Remember: your report is based on where the company and the industry are now! 2018! The fourth file, ” New Potbelly CEO Wants to Make Sandwiches More Interesting ” is the basis for your case about the company. At the end of the article is the link to the online version that also includes many charts, graphs and further information.

You will be delving into the exciting world of the fast-casual restaurant industry (or the fast-casual sandwich industry – you choose). For your quantitative analysis draw on as many current sources as you can to get the material for some quantitative analysis of the industry and the current company. The company is publically traded; its annual report and 10-K will be most helpful.

Rhetorical Analysis of a News Event 

Rhetorical Analysis of a News Event                               

This is a short, 800-1250 word analysis of a current news event of your choice. Rhetorical analysis is a form of close reading that requires textual support for your claims, so your paper will include lots of short quotes from the news stories to support your analysis, as well as some external source support for your claims about the agendas of the news outlets.

Context: we know that both implicit bias and deliberately selective presentation of images and information influence public perceptions, and ultimately shape policies and institutions. Implicit bias shows up due to the unchallenged assumptions of the journalist, and may influence how they do/not report on issues. This problem is now greatly exacerbated by the suppression of information by the current administration, as well as their presentation of “alternative facts” as news.

Implicit bias influences every aspect of daily life. Research has shown that medical providers are less likely to prescribe painkillers to black patients, including children.  Women are forced to wait longer than men for emergency care. Research conducted by the National Bureau of Economic Research shows that job applications with comparable credentials that varied only by stereotypically white or black names resulted in fewer callbacks for the stereotypically black names. The significance of the difference was such that  “…a white name yields as many more callbacks as an additional eight years of experience.” Negative callback rates also resulted from names that were stereotypically female, as well as those from applicants that appeared to be from residents of low-income areas.

Content: to conduct your analysis I am asking you to focus on a current news event (that is being actively reported right now, by multiple news outlets) and examine the ways it was/not reported. Look at reports from a minimum of three different media platforms, including ones that represent different political agendas, and include analysis of both texts and images from the stories. Things to discuss:

-How prominent is the story coverage? Was it a top story/above the fold in one and hidden deep in others?  Was it covered by all of the outlets?

-Look at the language of the headlines—is it sensationalist in some and matter-of-fact in others? Is there anything potentially misleading?

-Examine the images. How were the events and/or people involved portrayed? You must include images from each story in your paper, and provide some detailed analysis about each image.

-What information is not included? Is important context included in some but missing in others? Is the information supported with credible stats/links?

-Look at language and tone. This might mean overtly biased language or it may be subtle shifts in tone. Provide examples.

Details: You should start your paper with a paragraph that provides a brief overview of the news event, and your title should reference that event.  Discuss the credibility and perceived political slant of each news source, providing some external support for your claims. Do some homework about the news outlets, including the Pew Research article (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. we will read for class, stats from Alexa.com (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., or general research about the outlets. Cite your sources in text, and include a Works Cited page. State your citation style in the header of the paper.

Audience: The presumed audience for this paper is an academic, expert audience. This means that your tone should be relatively formal.
