Assignment 2: Taxation Research and Communication

The current tax law system in the United States has emerged over many years from statutory, administrative, and judicial sources. These sources are continually changing and new laws are introduced at least annually.

Suppose a client has come to you with a question about corporate taxation. Discuss your plan of action and communication with the client. Remember, the client does not have any technical background, and you need to communicate in terms he or she will understand.

Keeping this in mind, respond to the following:

  1. What would be your plan of action?
  2. What tax sources would you use to research the problem?
  3. How would you communicate your findings to the client?

Write a three page paper in MS Word format. Apply APA standards for writing style to your work.

 

Potential research areas that have valid academic journal articles.  No topics concerning the military will be allowed due to the lack of literature written about topics in the military.  YOU MUST DEAL WITH TYPES OF PEOPLE..NOT CRIMES OR OTHER CONCEPTS THAT ARE HARD TO MEASURE.

 

1.  domestic violence offenders

 

2.  domestic violence victims

 

3.  sex offenders

 

4.   victims of any type of crime

 

5.  juvenile delinquents

 

4.  serial murderers

 

5.  criminals in general

 

6.  any other types of people that fall into the criminal justice system

 

NOTE;  IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING AND YOU ARE WORKING FOR A CRIMINAL JUSTICE AGENCY, THEN I MAY APPROVE YOUR RESEARCH IF YOU CAN GET REAL DATA FROM YOUR AGENCY..JUST NO TOPICS DEALING WITH DUI SINCE THAT IS MY EXAMPLE THAT I AM USING.  LET ME KNOW..DON'T JUST SURPRISE ME or you could end up with a zero for this project.  If you want to do observational research, send me an email and we can talk about it. ALSO IF YOU ARE TAKING THIS CLASS FOR THE SECOND OR THIRD TIME, YOU MAY NOT RESUBMIT YOUR PRIOR PAPER..YOU MUST SELECT A NEW TOPIC AND DO AN ENTIRELY NEW PROJECT.

 

ALSO YOU DO NOT HAVE APPROVAL TO COLLECT REAL DATA.  THIS IS A PRETEND PROJECT AND YOU WILL MAKE UP YOUR DATA.  YOU CAN COLLECT REAL DATA WHEN YOU GET TO GRADUATE SCHOOL.

THIS PAPER IS AN EXAMPLE OF A SCIENTIFIC METHODS RESEARCH PROJECT AND IS NOT TO BE COPIED AND USED AS YOUR OWN WORK.  THIS IS INTENDED TO ASSIST YOU ONLY AS A GUIDE AND TO SHOW YOU WHAT A FINISHED PROJECT WILL OR RATHER SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

I.INTRODUCTION

 

 

GOAL STATEMENT:  To find out who gets arrested for Driving Under the Influence more often in the State of Florida.

 

 

 

INDEPENDENT VARIABLES:  needs five variables

 

Gender

 

 

 

Select five  and relate the variable to the goal statement..I gave you one .already .you select four more

 

 

RESEARCH QUESTIONS

 

1.What gender is arrested more often for DUI?

 

2.

3.

 

4.

 

5.

 

 

 

 

 

 

**NOTE:  THESE QUESTIONS ARE QUESTIONS THAT YOU ARE ASKING YOURSELF AT THIS POINT ABOUT YOUR TOPIC...THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO KNOW.  

 

ALSO THIS IS ALL THAT GOES ON THIS PAGE!

 

 

 

*NOTE:  YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SELECT THE TOPIC OF DUI ARRESTS...THIS IS TO BE USED AS AN EXAMPLE ONLY...DO NOT COPY!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

II.HYPOTHESES/THEORIES

 

 

H1:MALES ARE ARRESTED MORE OFTEN FOR DUI THAN FEMALES.

 

T1:The possible theory surrounding this hypothesis is because possibly more men frequent drinking establishments after working long hours and due to the stress of their home lives may be inclined to drink more than females thus encountering law enforcement more often while driving home; and therefore will be arrested more often than females.

 

 

You  need a hypothesis and theory for each one of  your variables..a theory is an explanation of why you believe your statement to be true.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

*NOTE:  YOU WOULD CONTINUE ON CREATING HYPOTHESES AND THEORIES FOR EACH OF YOUR VARIABLES....KEEP THESE IN THE SAME ORDER AS YOUR VARIABLES AND QUESTIONS.  BASICALLY TURN YOUR QUESTIONS INTO STATEMENTS OF FACT.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

III.SAMPLING PROCEDURE

 

 

This research project is being conducted to find out what types of demographic factors are involved with those who are arrested most often for driving under the influence of alcohol within the State of Florida.  This research will be descriptive in nature.  I intend to take a random sample of all DUI arrests per county.  This will be done via a computer selection process after all data is entered into a data analysis program such as SPSS or Excel.  Due to the accessibility and availability of all police reports through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and various departmental agencies,  a cover letter will be sent to all agencies within the State after obtaining prior approvals through governing bodies.    Once approvals are received, then data collection will begin.  The time frame for collection and analysis will be approximately one year.    Questionnaires will be mailed to the Chiefs of Police and County Sheriff's so they know what data is required for analysis.    I intend to review all DUI arrest data for a period for a period of one year.    I will gather demographic data concerning gender, race, age, marital status, educational level, employment status, prior DUI convictions/arrests and any other pertinent data that will assist me in this project.  

This project is intended to assist law enforcement, corrections, the judicial system and drug and alcohol treatment centers by targeting and hopefully arriving at a profile for those who may be inclined to drink and drive or perhaps have alcohol related problems.    This project will be published in an academic as well as trade journal in order to provide future assistance in treating those who have problems and may be inclined to drink, drive and become a hazard on our roadways.

RE:        Research Proposal

 

 

Dear Sir/Madam:

 

 

Hello, my name is ( your name)  and I am conducting a research project concerning demographic information on the types of people who are arrested for DUI most often within the State of Florida.  This research is being conducted in order to assist other agencies,  the law enforcement and criminal justice community in order to understand the types of people who drink and drive.  This research will be published nationally and I will be happy to furnish you a copy of the results.  I have enclosed a copy of the approval from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Attorney General's office in Tallahassee for your review also.  I would appreciate your assistance in my data collection and am requesting all data concerning DUI arrests made for the year 1999-2000.  I have also enclosed for your convenience a copy of the questionnaire which discusses what information is needed and the format for such information.    Also enclosed for your convenience is a self-addressed envelope.  

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at the phone number provided on this letterhead or via my email address.  Thanking you in advance for your cooperation in this very important research project.

 

 

Respectfully,

 

 

 

Your name

Title,

 

Enclosures (2)

 

 

 

**NOTE THIS IS HOW A FORMAL LETTER IS TO BE DESIGNED.  OBVIOUSLY YOURS WILL MAKE DIFFERENT STATEMENTS DEPENDING ON YOUR PROJECT!

 

 

 

 

V.QUESTIONNAIRE

 

This questionnaire is designed to obtain the most accurate response concerning the issue of Driving Under the Influence and the characteristics of those who have been arrested for DUI.  Please take a moment and fill out the following.  Thank you.

 

INSTRUCTIONS:   Please circle the most appropriate response to each question.

 

1.What is your gender?

 

a.maleb.female

 

2.

 

 

You will have questions for each of your variables and obviously a question that applies to your goal statement also.

 

 

 

 

 

*NOTE:  THIS QUESTIONNAIRE WOULD BE WHAT YOU WOULD GIVE OUT TO THE INDIVIDUAL IF YOU WERE COLLECTING YOUR OWN DATA.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

VII.LITERATURE REVIEW

 

This section would contain a brief of the journal article that you read.  A literature review tells you what other research has been done on your topic.  This literature review must be done in APA format and is basically a article brief.  You are telling me what another person has said.

 

You must use only academic journals...not newspapers, Time Magazine, books, internet, etc.  IT MUST BE AN ACADEMIC SOURCE IN ORDER TO OBTAIN FULL CREDIT.

 

See below for example:

 

 

Article #1

 

Upon review of the article entitled "Stages of Change and Self-Efficacy for Controlling Drinking and Driving:  A Psychometric Analysis" in the Journal of Addictive Behaviors, by Elizabeth Wells-Parker, Marsha Williams, Patricia Dill and Deric Kenne (1998), volume 23, number 3, it was found that motivation to change and self-efficacy appear as interim measures of DUI intervention programs (p.353).

 

*NOTE:  AT THIS POINT, YOU CONTINUE ON AND TELL ME WHAT THE ARTICLE IS ABOUT...BASICALLY, YOU ARE BRIEFING THE ARTICLE IN APPROXIMATELY TWO TO THREE PAGES DOUBLE SPACED, APA FORMAT.   YOU ARE TELLING ME WHAT THE RESEARCHERS FOUND AND HOW THIS APPLIES TO YOUR OWN RESEARCH.

 

*** I WOULD PUT ONE ARTICLE ON EACH PAGE RATHER THAN COMBINING BOTH ARTICES INTO ONE MAJOR BRIEF.  ****

IX.DATA ANALYSIS

 

 

**  PUT ONE DATA TABLE AND YOUR ANALYSIS ON EACH PAGE....DO NOT COMBINE DATA TABLES TOGETHER.

 

 

DISTRIBUTION OF GENDER AND DUI ARRESTS

 

DUI Arrests

Males    1200(60%)

Females      800       (40%)

Totals2000      (100%)

 

The above Table supports Hypothesis H1 which states that more males are arrested for DUI than females.   The data suggests that out of a total of 2000 samples, 60% were males.

 

 

*** at this point you are probably thinking...heck I have tons of room left over.  Basically the room is there in case you want to put in tables, bar graphs, pie charts or other illustrations.  THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT TO HAVE EXTRA...ALL I WANT IS TO SEE YOUR DATA TABLE AND YOUR BRIEFLY WRITTEN ANALYSIS.

 

You will have one data table for each hypothesis/theory

 

 

 

 

 

X.RESEARCH FINDINGS/CONCLUSION (separate page)

 

Discuss your findings and if you supported your hypotheses, etc.

 

XI.PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED (separate page)

 

discuss what problems you encountered with obtaining your data if any..make something up because in real research you’d have tons of problems.

 

 

XII.REFERENCES (separate page)

 

APA format....authors last name (alphabetical order), first initial (year) "name of article"; Journal name Underlined, volume, etc.

September 17 is Constitution Day!  This is the day that We, the People of the United States, commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution.  39 brave delegates to the Constitutional Convention drafted and signed this historical document, setting the foundation for our wonderful country.

 

Please explore this interactive site: http://constitutioncenter.org/constitution, to explore the Constitution piece by piece, from the articles through the Bill of Rights and other amendments. 

 

Or, try this online exploration activity to see what daily life might be like without the Bill of Rights.  http://billofrightsinstitute.org/resources/student-resources/play-games/life-without-the-bill-of-rights/

 

In recognition of Constitution Day, this discussion forum has been set up, giving you an opportunity to reflect upon, and discuss the Constitution and how it affects the Real Estate Industry today.  This forum is in addition to the weekly topic and will serve as extra credit for the forum portion of your final grade.

 

This forum will be open for your participation from September 9 through September 20.  For full credit, you must post an initial post and reply to at least one of your classmates’ initial posts.

 

The forum grading rubric will not apply precisely to this forum, however your initial post must be at least 250 words, and your responses at least 100 words, explaining why you agree/disagree or appreciate their perspectives. 

 

For the initial response, you are encouraged to utilize audio or video files to communicate or illustrate your reflection upon your chosen topic.  If you are more comfortable verbally communicating, go for it!

 

The optional topics to choose from are noted below, either in question form or in statement form, meant to be a discussion starter.  You only need to choose one and ensure that your discussion of the topic is related to this course topic.  Some of the topics may be more personally charged for you, but remember to be tactful, polite and scholarly when interacting within the classroom.  Healthy debate is great, but verbal attacks or bashing are not.

 

  • What part of the Constitution or the Bill of Rights do you feel is most applicable to you, as a Real Estate professional and why?
  • Carrying concealed weapons inside a business environment; real estate office, retail store, restaurant, hotel, while traveling, etc.
  • If asked by a non-citizen employee, how would you explain the Constitution and what it means to you and your career?

Assignment 3: Biopsychosocial-Cultural Model

Traditionally, mental illness was considered a biological problem, either inherited or developed due to genetic vulnerability within the individual. This point of view is termed the medical model. Treatment was provided to the individual in one-to-one meetings with a psychiatrist or sessions with a psychotherapist.

The field of mental health has evolved from the traditional model to one incorporating many more people, factors, causes, and types of treatment. The biopsychosocial-cultural model incorporates biological, psychological, developmental, familial, social, and cultural factors to understand how mental illness develops and how to design effective treatments.

Revisit the case of the two Wes Moores discussed in M1: Assignment 2. Then, pretend that you are the prison psychologist who completed the evaluation of the Wes Moore convicted of murder.

Using the module readings, the Argosy University online library resources, and the Internet, complete the following:

  • Gather information about the potential causes of Mr. Moore’s outcome.
  • Write a report of your findings to be filed in Mr. Moore’s chart and used by professionals who will be helping Mr. Moore. Address the following in your report:
    • Analyze how each of the following played a role in causing or affecting Mr. Moore’s troubled childhood and eventual imprisonment:
      • Biological factors (genetic and physiological)
      • Developmental factors
      • Psychological factors (emotional and related to thoughts)
      • Familial and social factors
      • Cultural factors (environmental and multicultural)
    • Evaluate how Mr. Moore’s troubled childhood and eventual imprisonment could have been prevented by early intervention. In addition, explain how that intervention could have been designed to address each of the following:
      • Psychological factors
      • Familial and social factors
      • Cultural factors
    • Recommend at least two ideas for treatment that Mr. Moore should have received in childhood, based on all of the following:
      • Biological factors
      • Psychological factors
      • Familial and social factors

Write a 3–5-page report in Word format (not including the title page and reference page). Include a title and reference page in APA format, and apply APA standards to citation of sources, including in-text citations and full references.

Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M1_A3.doc. For example, if your name is John Smith, your document will be named SmithJ_M1_A3.doc.
