Critical Thinking Week 4

...Week Four Assignment How might you use the strategies for applying creativity to problems and issues in addressing this topic? Looking back at the story used for the previous assignment, not all the information was needed to be objective. Since last week more information has became available. It has been determined that the soldier was not shot at the time he was online with his wife. So far it appears he died of natural causes. The media added the point that the wife saw a bullet hole in the closet behind her husband, but once they started the investigation, it was revealed there was no bullet hole in the closet. Thus far they are ruling the death as natural causes, but the investigation continues. Having this information with the original paper would have made it easier to write, but the information that was provided was all I had at the time. One strategy that could have used was producing of ideas or scenarios, which at the time weren’t available, so using the information provided was key at the time. How might you use the strategies for promoting curiosity in addressing this topic? Why do you think these strategies might be effective? The whole story contained some sort of curiosity, but in the end; any story concerning a death of a soldier in a foreign country will always be interesting to the reader. The strategy used for this story is more playing on the concern of the average American with family across sea fighting in this war. Leaving the reader......

...BUSI620-Global Economic Environment Critical Thinking Questions 6 Questions for Critical Thinking 6 Chapter 12: A. Discussion Questions: 7, 11, and 13. 7. Quantity discounts are not a form of price discrimination because the firm saves on handling large orders. True or False? Explain True, quantity discounts are not a form of price discrimination because the firm saves on handling large orders (Salvatore, 2012, p. 492). Large orders can be shipped at a lesser price compared to smaller orders, saving on shipping cost. There are many companies that reduce the price of the product if the company buys in bulk. In addition, larger orders cost less than smaller orders when dealing with production. For example, if a manufacturing wanted to make only 5 items the time spent on making that smaller order would take just as much time to do a larger order. 11. How is the transfer price of an intermediate product determined when (a) there is no external market for the intermediate product (b) a perfectly competitive external market for the intermediate product exists, and (c) an imperfectly competitive external market for the intermediate product exists? (A) “When there is no external demand for the intermediate product, the production division can sell the intermediate product only internally to the marketing division of the firm, and the marketing division can purchase the intermediate product only from the production division of the firm,” (Salvatore, 2012, p.......

Critical and Creative Thinking Week 1

...Individual Week 1 Review Questions GLG/220 10/02/2013 Critical and Creative Thinking Questions Chapter 1 3. How do you think the principle of uniformitarianism accounts for occasional catastrophic events such as meteorite impacts, huge volcanic eruptions, or great earthquakes? The principle of uniformitarianism states the processes occurring on Earth today are very similar in manner as those throughout much of geologic times. In other words “the present is the key to the past.”(Murck, B. W., Skinner, B. J., & Mackenzie, D. (2010)). When looking at past geological events and occurrences that happened in the past with additions of new testing and technology they can predict when and if volcanic eruptions may occur, meteorite impacts and their damages, and if plate shifts will occur resulting in earthquakes. Scientists rate the earthquakes on a scale based on how damaging they are. 5. In what ways do geologic processes affect your daily life? Daily activities including the water we drink or the tress we plant to help prevent and control soil erosion are a part of geologic processes. Earth materials and processes affect our lives through our dependence on Earth resources; through geologic hazards such as volcanic eruptions, floods and earthquakes; and through the physical properties of the natural environment (Murck, B. W., Skinner, B. J., & Mackenzie, D. (2010)). Understanding Earth’s materials is important because we depend on its resources for......

...GEN 499 Week 4 Critical Thinking Quiz To Buy This material Click below link http://www.uoptutors.com/gen-499-ash/gen-499-week-4-critical-thinking-quiz Since Jessica’s participation in local politics increased significantly after she joined her school’s political science club, it is clear that her involvement in that club led her to take an interest in politics. The argument above is flawed because: Mrs. Orlof teaches two history classes, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Yesterday she gave the same test to both classes. Anyone who failed the test must take a retest. Since a greater percentage of students who took the morning test failed the test than students who took the afternoon test, more of Orlof’s morning history students than afternoon history students will have to take the retest. The conclusion above is not necessarily valid because: The average height of members of the high school basketball team is six feet, three inches. Jerry is on the high school basketball team, so Jerry must be taller than six feet. The argument above is flawed because it confuses Catherine goes to her local movie theater only to see romantic comedies. Since Catherine did not go to the movies yesterday, there is not a romantic comedy playing at her local theater. The reasoning above is flawed because the evidence: A recent study of 100 employees from six departments of a major corporation found 65% to be sleep deprived.
