What is a “woman-identified woman”? What is “compulsory heterosexuality?” How did lesbian feminists understand patriarchy, and how did they interpret the goal of the feminist movement? Finally, what were some of the critiques offered by feminists of these strategies and ideas?

  • Your extended response should be approximately 500 words, or two double-spaced pages, and should address one of the following questions by drawing on our readings, lectures, and classroom discussions. Your response should draw from at least two different authors. Please indicate in the heading of your paper your full name, and the number of the question you’ve chosen to answer. Your answers should be specific, clear, and should demonstrate significant engagement with the readings. Quote minimally (not more than two lines per page), and use simple parenthetical citations to quote or cite sources, like this: “…(Frye p. 10)”. Upload your response by using the link in the “Course Assignment” section of Blackboard before the end of the day on December 6th.

    1. Describe and analyze lesbian or cultural feminism. You may choose to think about some of the following questions: what were some of the major ideas promoted by lesbian or cultural feminist groups such as the Radicalesbians, or by writers, artists, and activists including Adrienne Rich and Barbara Hammer? What is a “woman-identified woman”? What is “compulsory heterosexuality?” How did lesbian feminists understand patriarchy, and how did they interpret the goal of the feminist movement? Finally, what were some of the critiques offered by feminists of these strategies and ideas?
    2. Describe and analyze law enforcement violence against women of color. How do gender and sexuality structure encounters with policing, the prison industrial complex, and other institutional forms of violence? How do multiply-marginalized subjects experience violence? What is missing from the analysis of violence against women as it is sometimes articulated by mainstream forms of feminism?
    3. What is “hegemonic masculinity” according to Micheal Kimmel? What ideas and assumptions tend to structure this form of masculinity, and how does it contribute to expressions of racism, sexism, or homophobia? What does Kimmel mean when he argues that masculinity is a “flight from the feminine” and that it is a “contest between men”? How do Pascoe and Sedgwick reinterpret some of these ideas? How are other, diverse forms of masculinity experienced?

Explain how domestic violence policies evolved in local police departments across the United States. What is the trend in policing today? Discuss the research findings on the impact of mandatory arrest for misdemeanor domestic violence.

There is no set word limit for the answers, it is required that the questions are fully explain

  1. Explain how domestic violence policies evolved in local police departments across the United States. What is the trend in policing today? Discuss the research findings on the impact of mandatory arrest for misdemeanor domestic violence.
  1. Discuss the recent trends in terrorism in the United States, and the impact they’ve had on American Police. Are American policing becoming so focused on terrorism that they’ve shifted their policing approach away from community policing?
  1. Identify the six different theories of police corruption. Explain which theory you believe best explains why police corruption occurs. Discuss steps that you as chief of police would take to reduce the potential for corruption in your agency.
  1. The Miami-Dade Employee Identification System represents its version of an early warning system. As the materials supplied indicate, officers are identified on the basis of citizen complaints, use of force incidents (using officer reports), commendations they have received, any correctional action already taken, and any change in promotional status. Discuss these criteria. Do you think they are likely to reduce misconduct and improve the quality of police performance? Or do you think they are likely to deter officers from doing important police work? Will police officers avoid taking action because they are afraid of getting a complaint or becoming involved in a use of force incident?
  1. Discuss the pros and cons of technology in policing today. Think about technology’s impact on police officers, police agencies, and citizens. Will federal funding reductions reduce the ability of local law enforcement to purchase technology in the future? If so, how will this be overcome? If not, what resources do you see as replacing the federal funds? Without federal funding, do you envision either a reduction in the growth of police departments, or reduced levels of new employees? If so, what changes do you think police would need to make with population growing in most cities throughout the country

Students, please view the “Submit a Clickable Rubric Assignment” in the Student Center.

Instructors, training on how to grade is within the Instructor Center.

A company wishes to improve its e-mail marketing process, as measured by an increase in the response rate to e-mail advertisements. The company has decided to study the process by evaluating all combinations of two (2) options of the three (3) key factors: E-Mail Heading (Detailed, Generic); Email Open (No, Yes); and E-Mail Body (Text, HTML). Each of the combinations in the design was repeated on two (2) different occasions. The factors studied and the measured response rates are summarized in the following table.

Write a two to three (2-3) page paper in which you:

  1. Use the data shown in the table to conduct a design of experiment (DOE) in order to test cause-and-effect relationships in business processes for the company.
  2. Determine the graphical display tool (e.g., Interaction Effects Chart, Scatter Chart, etc.) that you would use to present the results of the DOE that you conducted in Question 1. Provide a rationale for your response.
  3. Recommend the main actions that the company could take in order to increase the response rate of its e-mail advertising. Provide a rationale for your response.
  4. Propose one (1) overall strategy for developing a process model for this company that will increase the response rate of its e-mail advertising and obtain effective business process. Provide a rationale for your response.
