    2. Decide on three (3) benefits required for the job opportunity using ERISA. Propose two (2) methods that the employer can use in order to manage the fiduciary duties wisely and with the employees’ best interests in mind. Provide a rationale for your response.

Explore two (2) potential repercussions of an organization’s interference with self-organization and collective bargaining practices.
    4. Propose three (3) ways to discourage employees from considering unionization. Then, compose one (1) strategy for championing a supportive and satisfying work environment within the organization.
    5. Select one (1) OSHA violation case, and determine whether the resulting penalties were sufficient to deter the organization in question from repeating the same violative action. Justify your response.
    6. Outline a plan for investigating workplace injuries, and formulate a policy that explains the process for filing a worker’s compensation claim within the selected organization.
    7. Narrate each slide, using a microphone, and indicate what you would say if you were actually presenting in front of an audience.
    8. Use at least three (3) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

Assignment 2: The Relationship between Organized Crime and Youth Gangs

 

In Centervale, the arrest rate for young individuals (seventeen to twenty-two years) has increased by more than 50 percent during the past year. The arrests have been mostly for the sale and possession of drugs. Some citizens are concerned that gang activity is on the rise in the town. Rumors have spread that the increase in drug activity is a direct result of organized crime. As the chief of police, you must compile a report for the mayor of Centervale to address the current problem of drugs.

 

To provide the mayor with some perspective, you need to research crime statistics on drug-related crimes, especially among the youth, using the Argosy University online library as well as the Internet (government or other reputable websites).

 

Tasks:

 

Prepare a 6–8-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following:

 

  • Describe how the operating structure of organized crime may include the use of youth gangs.
  • Describe the methods used by organized crime groups to profit from the inclusion of youth gang members.
  • List any differences in criminal activity among the organized crime groups you have researched.
  • Create at least one chart or graph that supports your opinion with some facts and figures you found from your research on drug-related crimes, especially among the youth. (Do not just copy a chart or a graph that you find). Be sure to provide some explanation of the data you are presenting.
  • Use the Notes section to provide a deeper exploration of each topic. Remember, this is your presentation that you will make to the mayor.
  • Include a cover slide and at least one slide at the end of your presentation to provide APA-formatted references for the sources used, linking back to your in-text citations and supporting your recommendations. You cannot have only in-text citations or only references; you must have both.

 

 

 

The following assignment is based on the database environment designed in the Week Two Individual Assignment.

Your database project must meet the following assessment requirements:

  • Design a database using professional principles and standards.
  • Provide a logical design of the database. As a part of the design, normalize the database to the 3NF
  • Use Microsoft Visio or another tool to create this diagram to normalize the ERD to third normal form (3NF).  One alternative is to create a free account to access LucidChart, a Visio compaible tool (www.lucidchart.com
As you approach the neighbors in the community, you and other officers are asking for any observations that were made during the morning hours as the missing child was leaving for school. You ask the following:
  • Did they witness anyone acting suspiciously?
  • Did they observe anyone in the company of the child?
  • Can they describe or identify the subject?
  • Do they know the name or location of the subject?

Prepare a memo of 500–700 words describing how you are going to approach these interviews. Include what items you may need to know more about, and keep the following in mind: 

  • As a critical case, consider the significance of this case.
  • Are there any legal considerations that you must take into account? What are they?
  • How will you approach any questioning of school-aged children in the community?
  • Remember, no skilled interviewer or interrogator begins an interview or interrogation without a plan.
    • Consider preparing a plan.
    • Know what questions to ask prior to the neighborhood interview.
    • Know about the relevant facts found prior to asking questions

  • Investigate an enterprise resource planning system (ERP) and identify how the functionality of an ERP system can help optimize Plan, Source, Make, Deliver and Return.

Format your presentation consistent with APA guidelines.

For the process you chose in 1-3:

  • Create a project scope statement of two or three pages for your Six Sigma project. The project deliverables in your project scope statement should be related to solving the main problem you identified in 1-3.

Write a quantitative research question using the PICO(T) model about a health or safety issue observed in the Ironridge or Summerville communities. Also, describe what research purpose (descriptive, exploratory, predictive, or prescriptive) you would use to answer your research question. 



Conduct
a search of the literature for the quantitative research question. Describe the literature search strategies (search terms, databases, filters, search results).  How many randomized, controlled trials (RCTs) did you find compared to other types of studies? What are the advantages and disadvantages of RCTs in comparison to other types of studies?  Generally, how would you summarize your articles (2-3 sentences)?



Using the same topic, write a qualitative research question using the P (population), I (abstract concept), O (outcome), and T (time) from the PICO(T) model. What qualitative research design (Phenomenology, Grounded Theory, Ethnography) would you select and why?
