Managing human resources

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Managing human resources (populations) and the resources necessary to support them have increased in scope and difficulty in the modern era. Briefly describe the factors that lead to population growth and potential stabilization. How does human demographics influence population dynamics in more developed nations and less developed nations and what might this mean for future populations, economic and social growth, and how might these people be distributed? What do you see as the pros and cons of a large human population (brief) mostly living in cities? Are there too many or too few people? Why do you think this?

Several lines of evidence are used to determine past climate conditions over varying time periods from the last several decades to several centuries to hundreds of thousands to millions of years. What are some of these methods and what relative times do they address? How does the current rate of climate change compared to previous eras and what might be some consequences for non-human biodiversity? What might be some of the consequences of climate change for South Florida? How might regional effects of CC vary from global effects? How might YOU manage adaptation to the consequences of Climate Change in South Florida?

  1. About 3/4 of the world’s commercial energy comes from non-renewable fossil fuels. How do the major fossil fuels compare in terms of the relative NET energy and greenhouse gas emissions produced. What are some of the ecological and social consequences of reliance on fossil fuels and given the estimated global supplies in terms of longevity do you think we will transition away from them? What are the pros and cons of using gas from the Marcellus Shale and should fracking gases relative to other fossil fuels be encouraged or discouraged? Why or why not?

Evaluating Reliability and Validity

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

When tests are created, they usually are evaluated for their usefulness. To determine the usefulness of a test, the authors and/or publishers typically assess its psychometric properties. Psychometric properties refer to quantifiable characteristics of a test that relate to its statistical strength or weakness. The main two features that are used to determine whether or not a test is statistically “strong” are reliability and validity. As you recall from your textbook readings, there are various types of reliability and validity as well as various ways to quantify each.
For the present assignment, you will be evaluating the reliability and validity of the CES-D using the fictitious data set provided in Bb. In order to assess/quantify the reliability of the CES-D, you will be calculating a statistic called Cronbach’s Alpha. Cronbach’s Alpha is used to estimate a type of reliability called “internal consistency,” or the degree to which each test question consistently measures the same underlying construct(s). In order to assess/quantify the validity of the test, you will be calculating a statistic called Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient between total scores on the CES-D and scores on the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), another test designed to measure depressive symptoms. When researchers find the correlation between two tests designed to measure the same underlying construct(s), they are providing evidence for the “convergent validity” of the tests.
Before beginning your analyses, please review the 20 questions that comprise the CES-D Scale. When we sum participants’ scores on all 20 questions, we obtain a Total Score. Several researchers agree that, in addition to a total score, participants’ scores can be categorized into four (4) subscales: Depressive Affect (DA), Well-Being (W), Somatic (S), and Interpersonal (I) (e.g., Hertzog, Van Alstine, Usala, Hultsch, and Dixon, 1990; Knight, Williams, McGee, and Olaman, 1997). Each subscale comprises a different subset of questions and assesses a different feature of depressive symptomology. The table below indicates which questions on the CES-D Scale correspond to each subscale.

CES-D Subscales

DA = Depressive Affect, W = Well-being, S = Somatic, I = Interpersonal

Q#1 S Q#2 S Q#3 DA Q#4 W Q#5 S
Q#6 DA Q#7 S Q#8 W Q#9 DA Q#10 DA
Q#11 S Q#12 W Q#13 S Q#14 DA Q#15 I
Q#16 W Q#17 DA Q#18 DA Q#19 I Q#20 S

For this assignment, you will:

  1. Calculate measures of central tendency and variability for the total score and each of the four (4) subscale scores presented in the SPSS data file, and then create a single table (in Word) to present the descriptive statistics that you calculated.
  2. Create the appropriate graphs to illustrate the distribution of scores for the total score and each of the four (4) subscales. (Five graphs in total)
  3. Calculate Cronbach’s Alpha for the total scale and for each of the four subscales, and then create a single table to present the results of your reliability analyses.
  4. Calculate a Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient between the CES-D total scores and scores on the BDI, and then create a single table to present the results of your validity analysis.
  5. Write a verbal summary of all of your findings. This summary section will include 2 elements:
    a. Summarize the results of the descriptive, internal consistency, and validity analyses using the information compiled in the table(s)/figures.
    b. Interpret the values that you found from the various analyses.

Essay Questions:

1 – Sitting Bull stated, “The life my people want is a life of freedom.” Likewise, Chief Joseph simply asked the government for equal rights enshrined by the laws. Describe what freedom meant to the Indians and how that conflicted with the interests and values of most white Americans. Also, explain why white Americans did not allow Indians the opportunity to have American citizenship.
2 – The West experienced tremendous growth after the Civil War; nowhere was this more apparent than in California. Write an essay on the consequences of population growth on the western landscape, looking at farming, livelihoods, the impact of the railroad, the growth of Indian reservations, and the subjugation of Indian peoples.
3 – What might account for the emergence of a mythic “Wild” West during the Gilded Age? Given the rapid post–Civil War expansion of industry beyond the Mississippi River, why would perceptions of a West, at once a lawless but timeless romantic frontier dominated by cowboys and Indians, permeate American popular culture in the late nineteenth century? (In composing your answer, consider the impact of the second industrial revolution.)
4 – Explain why Americans increasingly came to feel that they were being denied economic independence and democratic self-government during the late nineteenth century.
5 – How did the Populists seek to rethink the relationship between freedom and government to address the crisis of the 1890s? Why was their platform considered radical? How did their platform seek to guarantee freedom?
6 – Chronicle the process that developed in the South of chipping away the freedoms granted to blacks during Reconstruction. Give careful consideration to how the Civil War was remembered by white America. By 1900, what conditions did African-Americans in the South face? How did they respond to these conditions?
7 – Analyze the consequences of American rule in Puerto Rico, Cuba, and the Philippines. Did the citizens prosper? Enjoy freedom? Accept American rule? Comment on the consequences for the United States with regard to the statement made by Eric Foner in the text: “Thus, two principles central to American freedom since the War of Independence—no taxation without representation and government based on the consent of the governed—were abandoned when it came to the nation’s new possessions.”
8 – Explain the controversy that the war in the Philippines and the annexation of the Philippines triggered over the relationship between political democracy, race, and American citizenship.
9 – Discuss some of the freedoms and restrictions experienced by American women after 1880. How did some women’s lives seem to change for the better, while others’ did not? How would you explain the disparity of their situations? Support your answer with specific examples from the text.

Part 2 Essay Questions:

1 – After World War I and more than twenty years of reform, Americans became much more conservative in the 1920s. In fact, Reinhold Niebuhr stated that America was “rapidly becoming the most conservative nation on earth.” Give examples that defend this perception of America as conservative in the 1920s.

2 – The 1920s are commonly referred to as the Roaring Twenties. Document who was and who was not “roaring” in the 1920s. Your answer ought to illustrate the dichotomy of the decade.

3 – The 1920s present a time when an entire people was grappling with massive technological and social change. Americans spent the decade seeking to adapt to the rise of a mass-production, mass-culture metropolitan world that had emerged seemingly overnight. Discuss the decade in these terms, describing the many ways in which Americans sought to deal with this change.

4 – Would you describe the 1920s as a decade that benefited women? Why, or why not? Remember to consider the experience of all women when composing your answer.

5 – The Great Depression came dramatically with the stock market crash, but the causes of the Depression had been planted well before 1929. Discuss what brought on the Great Depression and why Hoover was not able to properly address the crisis.

6 – Analyze how FDR oversaw the transformation of the Democratic Party into a coalition of farmers, industrial workers, the reform-minded urban middle class, liberal intellectuals, northern African-Americans, and the white supremacist South.

7 – How did the New Deal alter the role of the national government? In your answer, discuss specific New Deal reforms.

8 – Compare the New Deal reforms with those of the Progressive era. How did the New Deal reflect the reform traditions of the Progressive era? Be sure to include in your answer a discussion about Roosevelt’s key administrators.

9 – Thinking back to other labor struggles in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, such as the Homestead Strike, Haymarket Affair, 1902 Coal Strike, and Ludlow Massacre, how do the Memorial Day Massacre and the UAW sit-down strikes compare? Had organized labor become any more sophisticated over the years in its tactics? Had business or government become any more sympathetic?

10 – Even though there were no significant gains made in civil rights during the 1930s, there seemed to be an optimistic view among the black community. African-Americans were able to find help in the 1930s through the hope they viewed in the Roosevelt administration, their inclusion within the Congress of Industrial Organizations, and the Popular Front. Write an essay that elaborates on these three pillars, and discuss what each offered to the African-American community.
