Use the project charter template charter.doc  and examples of the project charters in Chapters 3 and 4 as guidelines. Assume that part of the approach is to select the project team as quickly as possible. Worth 20 Points.

## Do my Financial Ratios Discussion and Reply to Quentin and Edwards Discussion Question!

My Financial Ratios Discussion:

Referencing this week’s readings and  lecture, what are the limitations of financial ratios? Classify your  answer into at least the following categories: liquidity ratios,  activity ratios, leverage ratios, and profitability ratios.

Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.

Quentins Discussion Reply and include sources provided:

According  to our weekly lecture, Cain defined the following four ratios, namely  liquidity ratios, which “help determine whether a company is liquid  enough to cover up its current liabilities.” Activity ratios “establish  how a company makes use of its resources through comparison of certain  activities.” Leverage ratios “establish the level of debt owed to  creditors by a company and whether such a company is in a position to  pay its long-term liabilities.” Lastly, profitability ratios “establish  whether it is operating at a profitable level and measure the success of  the company in the industry” (Cain, 2018, Week 6 Lecture).

The limitations of these financial ratios vary depending on the type  of ratio presented. For the liquidity ratio, limitations may rise due to  the fluctuation of sales at certain times of the year. Activity ratios  may experience a type of constraint due to the late customer payments  and also seasonal sales being higher than others. Leverage ratios  experience issues when debt is too high being that the debt still has to  be paid at some point. For profitability ratios also depend on whether  or not companies can pay their debts and how much profit is being  generated. Other limitations include inaccurate data on statements,  times of inflation, and fixed assets at cost (Epstein, 2014).

Edwards Discussion reply and use sources in reply:

While  financial ratios can be used to access a company’s performance in  regards to their financial health, they have multiple limitations that  can prevent an analyst from getting a full examination. Liquidity ratios  for instance may be used by a financial institution when they are  determining whether the borrower has enough cash flow to pay of current  debt. However, using a liquidity ratio would get inaccurate results if  the company measured their performance multiple times a year because the  numbers could fluctuate. Activity ratios can be used by an analyst to  see how much of a company’s assets can be converted into cash. However,  “assets are valued at cost and may not reflect the current market value  of assets which can distort ratios that use asset values, especially  when comparing a company with primarily older assets to a company just  starting up” (Epstein, 2014, p. 6.2).

Profitability and leverage ratios are used to determine how  money a company makes and how much capital they have but they are  inefficient if a financial analyst is looking for future projections.  Not to mention that all the financial ratios mentioned will have  inadequate results if the company only has high level performances  during peak seasons. A company that sells lawn equipment will have peak  sales during the warms but will have low sales when it gets cold.  Conclusively, all financial ratios would be difficult to use if a  company sells items in different industries because it would be too hard  to analyze what other corporations to deploy for products sold  comparison.

## Need help with completing an editing and grammar assignment.

I need help with the attached assignment.  There are two parts.  Copyediting for spelling, grammar, punctuation, hyphens, capitalization, etc.  And, multiple choice or identify the correct answer.

## Analysis of Standardized Testing Reports

Understanding how to read and analyze a standardized test report is important.  Watch the video, Understanding and Administering the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, which can be accessed through the Films on Demand database and explains how to interpret a standardized test report.  Using the information shared in the video and in Chapter 4 of the textbook, you will analyze one of the test reports below.  In your analysis, make sure to address whether the test in the report is norm referenced, criterion referenced, or a combination of both and how you know.  In addition, analyze the test report’s stanines, percentile ranks, two academic areas of strengths, and two academic areas of weakness.  You can choose to submit your analysis as a written response.
Choose one of the Stanford reports below to complete the analysis.

## Assignment 3: Corrections Case Study

Assignment 3: Corrections Case Study

Due Week 10 and worth 200 points

The history of correctional institutions is well-documented. Correctional institutions (jails and prisons) house individuals who are awaiting trial, serving both short and long term sentences.  Correctional officers are responsible for the monitoring, treatment and supervision of individuals who have been found guilty by a court of law.

For this assignment, we will take you inside a look at the “2016 Most Violent Prison”. Please review this video now if you haven’t already done so, before beginning Assignment 3.

After reviewing the video, download the Assignment 3 template. Answer the following questions within the template, then upload the completed template to the assignment submission link in Week 10: Describe the main methods Sergeant Baldwin and his staff use to maintain order and safety in the prison. Take a position on the effectiveness, risks, pros and cons, and ethics of these methods. Choose one (1) of the inmates profiled in this video – Terry Dibble, Simkayta Winfield, Jerico Jones, or Gregory Crowder – and discuss their situation. Explain how they ended up at Statefield, the main issues they described facing, and the methods they use to cope with their time in prison. Discuss the effect you feel the presence of the active armed guards has on the violence level and overall safety within this prison. Describe the issue of isolation in Statesville presented in this video and the effects connections and contact with outside visitors can have on the prisoners’ mental status. Identify at least two (2) issues that gay inmates here uniquely face. Identify at least one (1) method of protecting gay inmates against each of these identified issues. Take a position on how you believe conditions at Statefield could be improved. Include at least two (2) specific actions that could be taken to improve conditions (i.e. security and safety, abuse and use of force, isolation, poor food quality, etc.). Provide a rationale for your position.

## For Part A of this assignment, choose a movie

For Part A of this assignment, choose a movie, book, or television show that depicts a character or character(s) suffering from mental illness. Write a paper analyzing a character’s illness in terms of one or more of the theoretical perspectives (e.g., biological, psychoanalytic, cognitive-behavioral, biopsychosocial) presented in the text.
1. Describe the character’s diagnosis in terms of the DSM-IV. Make sure to include two (2) criteria that the character meets.
2. Describe one (1) perspective(s) of mental illness that best explains the development of the character’s symptoms, along with two (2) facts to support your position.
3. Describe any treatment received by the character. Describe two (2) reasons that you would recommend similar or different treatment. If the character did not receive treatment, describe the type of treatment you would recommend with two (2) supporting facts.

Suggested movies include:

• Beautiful Mind (2001).
• Girl, Interrupted (1999).
• Fatal Attraction (1987).
• Sybil (1977).
• One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975).
• Play Misty for Me (1971).

For Part B of this assignment, go online to the following Web page: http://www.prisonexp.org/ Take a tour through the slide show, which shows actual footage of the Stanford Prison study.

After viewing the slideshow, respond to the following questions. Your response should be one (1) page in length.

1. Describe one (1) factor that prevented “good guards” from objecting or countermanding the orders from tough or bad guards.
2. Describe one (1) reason why prisoners try to work within the arbitrary prison system to effect a change in it (e.g., setting up a Grievance Committee), rather than trying to dismantle or change the system through outside help.
3. Describe two (2) factors would lead prisoners to attribute guard brutality to the guards’ disposition or character, rather than to the situation.
4. Was it ethical to conduct this study? Provide two (2) reasons to support your position.
